A preliminary FHP report said Bonnilea Mitchell, 67, was initially stopped at the intersection of S.R. 44 and Kensington Avenue, but eventually pulled onto the highway attempting to make a left turn in her 2012 Kia Optima. Meanwhile, a 2009 Ford F450 driven by Wayne Morgan, 43, of Sopchoppy was traveling westbound on S.R. 44 on the inside lane. According to FHP, Morgan tried evasive maneuvers by braking and swerving, but the Ford hit Mitchells vehicle on the left side, causing it to rotate counter-clockwise twice before coming to a rest. Morgans vehicle also rotated twice before coming to a rest. Mitchell was taken to Citrus Memorial hospital, where she died from her injuries. She was not wearing a seat belt. Morgan, who was wearing his seat belt, suffered minor injuries and didnt require hospitalization. The crash remains under investigation.

Education bill revamps standards Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida lawmakers on Friday sent Gov. Rick Scott a sweeping education bill that rolls back graduation standards that just three years ago were hailed as reforms that would help students compete globally. The comprehensive bill also would set the stage for the University of Florida to take the lead in online education in the state by giving the states most prestigious university the right to offer bachelor degrees completely online. House Speaker Will Weatherford contended the legislation (SB 1076) would transform the states schools and predicted legislators would remember the unanimous vote in favor of the bill. In 2010, legislators raised the states graduation requirements, adding tougher courses in math such as Algebra II and science courses such as chemistry and physics. The argument at the time was it would align high school standards to the types of skills that would be needed to attract high-wage jobs in the state. The bill sent to Scott, however, would remove those requirements, which is a Native Americans aim to educate MATTHEW BECK /ChronicleSue Wright plays a percussion instrument in the shape of a frog Friday morning at the 13th annual Native American Intertribal P owwow.

NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Powwows, drum circles, Mother Earth, intertribal customs and traditions members of the Red Eagle Lodge of West Central Florida seek to explain and demystify what these and other terms mean to Native Americans at the 13th annual Native American Intertribal Powwow, continuing this weekend at Fort Cooper State Park. Our purpose is two-fold, said Pansey Cleaveland, Red Eagle Lodge president. The powwow is an educational opportunity for the public to see things and to learn about things they dont normally get to see. Also, for us, its our church. The circle gets blessed with sage, and when we go in and dance, we go in with pure hearts. The Red Eagle Lodge Powwow, which began Friday, continues from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. today and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday at Fort Cooper State Park, 3100 S. Old Floral City Road, Inverness.

SIDIBE Staff writerINGLIS The storms of mid-March caused a little scare near a youth ranch in Levy County when lightning torched surrounding property. Officials of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranch Caruth Camp promptly contacted their local fire department and then the Florida Forest Service, which dispatched a team to the 242-acre site just off U.S. 19.

alleviate it without depending solely on property taxes. Speaking to the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce on Friday, he said the county is facing a $16.5 million budget shortfall for 2014. There are three primary reasons why, he said. First and foremost, the continued reduction of valuation of real estate in the community ... the second and third components of that $16.5 million shortfall come from Duke-Progress Energy issues. He explained them as the tax discrepancy issue of about $8 million and the value of losing the nuclear power plant, which has yet to be quantified. In response, he said county officials will continue to look for ways to reduce costs in addition to what they have done. In my opinion, I do not believe that we are going to be able realize $16 million in expenditure reductions in this county without substantially impacting quality of life in Citrus County in a negative fashion, Meek said. He broke down the budget, explaining after mandatory spending there is about $20 million in discretionary funds to pay for quality-of-life services, such as libraries, parks, pools, community centers and senior services. Subsequently, he said the county will have to look at the revenue side, the tax structure, and look at ways to diversify, as surrounding counties have done. He explained the Municipal Services Benefit Units (MSBUs) and Municipal Services Taxing Units (MSTUs) mechanisms fees per parcel that would increase the number of payers into the system and decrease reliance on property taxes. This isnt a way for local government to increase taxes, he said. Its a way to equitably distribute the tax burden in the most economically feasible way possible. He said the board is currently exploring three primary new funding sources: a law enforcement MSBU for road patrol, a per-parcel flat fee MSBU for fire service and a road resurfacing MSBU. These would appear as separate items on a tax bill. He said they are very cognizant about keeping tax rates low and keeping the county as one of the most affordable places to live.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com. mitigation specialist is to rein in the high-oil vegetation before the onset of the fire season, generally in springtime before regular summer rains begin. The fire in March did not spread, but its a good thing they came to us with that request, because those cabins in the camp could be threatened in case of a major fire. The team has been working all around those cabins to reduce the hazardous fuel threat, Bond said. She said the work of the team is part of a hazardous fuel reduction program geared toward properties with high fire risks by going in and mowing, chopping and conducting prescribed burns. All of this is done free, but with the provision the property owner vows to maintain what the forestry team created. Bond said funding for the effort comes from the federal government and properties have to qualify by meeting certain criteria such as the abundance of fuel-filled vegetation and whether property is in a wildfire-prone area. Levy County is a rural swath of Florida longleaf pine and scrub with thickets of hammock making it a high-risk area for wildfires. Camp director Patricia Nelson said the blaze on the neighboring property was a wake-up call. We just feel blessed they came in here and did all of this, Nelson said. This area here used to be as thick with the palmettos as they are over there, she said, pointing to an area covered with a bouquet of palmettos. They cleared all around the cabins and everything looks neat. We feel a lot safer too, Nelson added.

Within this area, grass should be mowed regularly and widely spaced plants with high moisture content should be given priority. Prune tree limbs within the defensible space to a height of 15 feet so the lower limbs would not become fuel ladders to roofs. Keep roofs and gutters free of leaves. Keep a shovel, rake and ladder in a readily accessible location and 50 to 100 feet of garden hose attached to an outside faucet. Keep tree limbs at least 15 feet away from chimney outlets. Replace wood shingle or wood shake roofs with fire retardant shingles, metal or tile roofs. Make sure home addresses are clearly visible.

Instead, college-bound students could opt to take tougher courses and earn a high school diploma that includes a scholar designation. Students would also be allowed to take career education courses or enroll in work-related internships. The new measure would also remove requirements to pass end-of-course tests in biology and geometry in order to earn a diploma. Instead the tests would count as 30 percent of a students final grade. Weatherford who championed a measure to tie teacher pay to student performance rejected any criticism that the new bill was watering down the current standards. He and other supporters including Democrats insisted that they were redesigning high school standards to give different options to students who may not be interested in pursuing a college degree. Whether that child wants to be a brain surgeon or a Mercedes mechanic, this takes care of them, said Rep. Elizabeth Porter, R-Lake City. The legislation drew support from Democratic legislators, who said it was a sign that GOP colleagues were responding to criticisms that have been heaped on the states education system in the years since then-Gov. Jeb Bush pushed through changes that emphasized how students fared on high-stakes tests such as the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. Today were not ending the FCAT as we know it, but were getting closer, said Rep. Alan Williams, D-Tallahassee. The House passed the bill with a unanimous vote. The Florida Senate passed the legislation earlier this week by a 33-7 vote. Scott has not said how he will act on the bill. A spokeswoman said Friday he would review the bill. But the legislation does include a provision that allows the states colleges to waive a portion of tuition and fees in order to design degree programs that cost $10,000 to offer. Scott has pushed for colleges to offer the low-cost degrees as part of his effort to keep the cost of tuition down. The measure also includes several provisions that affect Floridas public universities, including designating universities as preeminent state research universities. UF, which meets the criteria, would be allowed to start an online institute in 2014 that would offer bachelors degree online as well as a masters degree in business administration. This was a high priority for Weatherford, who said it was time that the state expanded its digital offerings to students. The cost of the online courses could not be more than 75 percent of the tuition charged to Florida residents who attend school at the Gainesville campus. UF would also get $15 million in the coming year to carry out its new mission. You could take all of your courses from a kitchen table, said Rep. Marlene OToole, R-Lady Lake and chairwoman of the House Education Committee. Grand Entry ceremony.

The House voted 111-4 in favor of the bill which heads to the Senate where similar legislation has barely moved this session. The legislation comes months after a federal court decision invalidated state college and university rules that require higher tuition rates to Florida-residents who are U.S. citizens but dependent on parents who are in the U.S. without legal permission. Some legislators complained the legislation didnt go far enough because it does not include children who were brought to the U.S. when they were young.Fla. begins gambling awareness campaign TALLAHASSEE Internet cafs are the new poster children of the Florida.

The House with minimal debate voted 99-17 on Friday in favor of its version. The Florida Senate passed a rival version of its budget earlier in the week. Over the next few days, top leaders will negotiate behind closed doors to settle key questions such as how much money to set aside in reserves and how much money to use for tax cuts. These decisions will go a long way toward establishing the framework for a final budget as well as determining if Republican Gov. Rick Scott will get his way on his top priorities this year. Scott wants a $2,500 pay raise for teachers as well as the elimination of a tax cut charged on equipment purchased for manufacturing. House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, predicted this framework should be in place by the middle of next week. That gives legislators about two weeks to haggle over individual spending items. Florida law requires the final budget to be on the desks of legislators 72 hours before a final vote. The new budget will cover spending for the fiscal year that begins July 1. Unlike in recent years, legislators have a budget surplus this year. That has allowed the Republicancontrolled Legislature to propose spending an additional $1 billion for public schools as well as setting aside money for pay raises for state workers. The House passed its $74.4 billion budget following a stripped-down debate that included one voice of opposition: House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston. The Fort Lauderdale legislator again questioned why the House continues to refuse to accept federal aid to expand Medicaid coverage to roughly 1 million Floridians. The federal government would pay the entire cost for the first three years, and Scott himself has called for the expansion. The House is moving ahead with a strippeddown health insurance plan that would offer coverage to about 115,000 residents. The House plan, which will be considered Monday, would rely completely on state money. The Senate has its own alternative to Medicaid expansion but that plan would still use billions in federal money to pay for private insurance coverage. STEPHEN E.

Know debit card danger zones Special to the ChronicleWould you knowingly allow a thief to have direct access to your checking account? Most likely the answer is a resounding no! Unfortunately, you may be doing just that by regularly using your debit card for purchases at risky locations, cautions the Seniors vs. Crimes program, a volunteer arm of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Although debit cards may look identical to credit cards, there is one key difference: debit cards draw money directly from your checking account rather than from an intermediary, such as a credit card company. To help keep criminals out of your bank account, keep the following tips in mind: Outdoor ATMs present a perfect opportunity for thieves to skim users debit cards. Skimming devices can be placed over the real card slots, allowing the criminal to capture the information on the cards magnetic strip. Tip: Use an ATM inside a retail outlet, banking institution or other high-trafficked, well-lit place. Check for ATM components that look beat-up or askew. Gas stations are another danger zone for debit card use. These payat-the-pump terminals have many of the characteristics card fraudsters love, because it is difficult to maintain continual supervision over the pumps, which allows an opportunity for a thief to place a skimmer device inside. Tip: With the high potential for debit card fraud while filling up, it might make sense to use an alternative such as cash or credit cards. Consumers should never use their debit card to buy products online. The web can be a risky place for shoppers, because it is susceptible at so many points. Unfortunately, data can be compromised by malware or from the merchants database, leaving buyers bank accounts vulnerable to intrusion. Tip: Use only a credit card for Internet purchases, even if using a trusted website. Anytime your debit card leaves your hands, fraud is possible. Restaurants, delivery orders placed over the phone and merchants who do not take the necessary steps to safeguard your payment information can be problematic for consumers. Tip: Using credit or cash is less risky than using a debit card, and keeps your financial information out of the hands of unscrupulous thieves. If you have a problem or need assistance call Seniors vs. Crime at 352-249-9139; or visit the office at 4093 N. Lecanto Highway, Beverly Hills, next to Main Street Restaurant and Grill.

Carnival wont repay US aid Associated PressMIAMI Carnival Corp. says all maritime interests must assist without question those in trouble at sea, a duty that would not include reimbursing the U.S. government nearly $780,000 for costs associated with the rescue of the crippled Triumph cruise ship. Carnival released letters Friday replying to an inquiry by U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat who chairs the Senate Commerce Committee, about the Triumph stranding and the cruise lines overall safety record. Among Rockefellers questions was whether Carnival would repay the government for Coast Guard costs in the Triumph case as well as $3.4 million to the Coast Guard and Navy from the 2010 stranding of the Carnival Splendor in the Pacific Ocean. These costs must ultimately be borne by federal taxpayers, Rockefeller said in his March letter, adding that Carnival appears to pay little or no federal income taxes. In response, Carnival said its policy is to honor maritime tradition that holds that the duty to render assistance at sea to those in need is a universal obligation of the entire maritime community. The cruise line noted that its ships frequently participate in rescues at the Coast Guards request, including 11 times in the past year in Florida and Caribbean waters. It did not make direct reference to repaying any money. In a statement, Rockefeller called the response shameful and he is considering all options to hold the industry to higher passenger safety standards. Those options could include a congressional hearing and legislation, perhaps even a closer look at taxation. Rockefellers letter asked Carnival whether the money it pays in taxes covers the costs of various federal benefits it receives, a question the cruise line again did not directly answer. It did mention port taxes and fees and other payments and said it paid $16.5 billion in wages to U.S. workers in 2011. Every state where our ships call or home port benefits from the dollars spent by cruise lines to buy products and retain services from local businesses, Carnival added. The exchange marked the latest chapter in the saga of the Triumph, which was disabled by an engine fire during a cruise in February in the Gulf of Mexico. Thousands of passengers and crew had to endure five days at sea with no power and under squalid conditions. Relay Lecanto County BRIEFS Documents: Dad stocked sailboat before kidnapping Associated PressTAMPA The man accused of kidnapping his two young sons and sailing to Cuba had spent weeks loading the familys boat with supplies and had suggested the family might sail as far away as South America, according to court documents released Friday. The affidavits release coincided with a hearing for Joshua and Sharyn Hakken in Tampa, though the couple did not attend. They were ordered to remain in jail without bond, which their public defender did not contest. Federal prosecutors formally dropped their case against the couple Friday, though they still face kidnapping charges in Floridas Hillsborough County. Their attorney entered not guilty pleas on their behalf Friday. The affidavit detailing how the Hakkens prepared for the trip to Cuba was part of the now-closed federal case. An unidentified witness told a Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office detective she had sold Joshua Hakken a boat for $3,500 in January and that Hakken paid $400 to store the boat at a boat slip. The witness said Hakken would visit the boat once a week and load boxes of supplies into the cabin. Last week, on the day the family disappeared, the Hakkens and their boys showed up at the boat and told the slip owner they were heading to Key West and possibly South America, the witness said. The childrens grandparents said the boys are under the impression they merely went on vacation and arent aware of the criminal charges facing their parents. Police say the Hakkens lost custody of their boys, ages 4 and 2, after authorities found them in a Louisiana hotel room with drugs and weapons. Last week, the boys maternal grandparents were granted custody. Thats when police say Joshua Hakken broke into the home, tied up his motherin-law, took the children and eventually set sail for Cuba. Joshua and Sharyn Hakken arrived in Florida early Wednesday with their sons and the family dog, accompanied by federal, state and local authorities after being handed over by Cuban officials. The couples next pretrial hearing is set for May 30. Joshua and Sharyn Hakken ... were ordered to remain in jail without bond.
FRANKSCHECK The Hollywood ReporterLOS ANGELES You have to at least give Scary Movie 5 points for timeliness. This latest installment of the horror movie spoof franchise manages to deliver parodies of movies as recent as last weeks Evil Dead remake, not to mention one that hasnt even been made yet (Fifty Shades of Gray). But those points are immediately subtracted by the fact that this Wayans-less installment doesnt manage to wrest a single laugh from any one of them. Directed by Malcolm D. Lee and co-written and produced by the venerable David Zucker (Airplane, The Naked Gun), it demonstrates the latter has definitely lost his comic mojo. The film, which opened without being press-screened, unspooled to an opening day audience that produced a deafening silence. If youve seen the trailer, youve already seen the most notorious segment, in which Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan enthusiastically if sadly make fun of their naughty personas in a clownish opening sex sequence riffing on the Paranormal Activity series. Its pretty much all downhill from there. The filmmakers desperation is evident from the fact a good chunk of the running time is devoted to spoofing the recent Jessica Chastainstarrer Mama. While that film was indeed a sleeper hit, it hardly seems memorable enough to warrant such sustained treatment, and indeed the comic pay-offs are nil. Otherwise, its mostly a jumbled-together collection of sketches riffing on a disparate group of films including Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Inception, Cabin in the Woods, Paranormal Activity and its sequels and even Black Swan. Resembling the sort of lame bits relegated to the closing minutes of Saturday Night Live when airtime must be filled and featuring narration by a Morgan Freeman soundalike, their collective lameness is numbing. Ashley Tisdale and Simon Rex anchor the films loose plotline mashing together parodies of Mama and Black Swan, and while both performers are certainly game, neither possesses the comic chops necessary to keep the proceedings afloat. The rest of the cast consists largely of major and minor celebrities popping in for silly cameos, including Heather Locklear, Terry Crews, Mike Tyson, Snoop Dogg, Katt Williams, Jerry OConnell, Usher and others too numerous to mention. Only Molly Shannon playing a demented, accident-prone ballerina manages to impress with her sheer determination to be funny, even if she never quite succeeds. Director Lee periodically speeds up the film to produce a comic effect, although sadly not enough to reduce its seemingly interminable 85-minute running time. The inevitable outtakes during the closing credits indicate that the performers, at least, managed to get some laughs out of the experience. Scary Movie 5, a Dimension release, is rated PG-13 for crude and sexual content throughout, language, some drug material, partial nudity, comic violence and gore. Running time: 85 minutes.

If you find yourself at a loss, stay where you are, because it may be your best chance for success. Aries (March 21-April 19) To get what you want, you might be tempted to employ subterfuge.

Your family and companions will be immersed in their own problems. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Instead of feeling obligated to do business with a firm youve dealt with previously, go where you can get the best deal. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Indecision or inconsistency on your part can be unnerving to your associates. To maintain your credibility, you must do what you say, and do it confidently. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Dont treat an assignment indifferently just because you feel its beneath you. If you fail to deliver, it could greatly damage your prospects. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) There is a strong possibility you could be too gullible in your commercial dealings. Be extra careful and question everything, especially in unfamiliar waters. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Be wary of getting deeply and quickly involved with someone you just met. Let things develop slowly. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Strive to be a productive individual instead of a procrastinator. What you put off doing now will likely never get done. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Your impulse for instant gratification could cause dire financial complications. Stop deluding yourself into making rash purchases. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Dont anticipate failure before you even give something the old college try. You have as much chance of winning as you do of losing.

Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio John Coopers obsession with being Abraham Lincoln began one score and five years ago. Its beginnings were humble. Tall, lean and bearded, the Ohio man already bore a passing resemblance to the Rail Splitter, or so he was told. One Halloween he donned a frock coat he found in his mothers attic, and his wife fashioned a stovepipe hat out of cardboard. A little spray paint on his beard, and he was ready for trick or treat with the kids. He was so convincing that before long he was invited to come to schools in costume around Presidents Day. Then people started paying him to show up at their events in character to talk about the 16th president. The rest is history. But honestly, this is a huge weekend for the 62year-old Cooper, who is helping to host a gathering of impersonators of the Great Emancipator in Columbus. The 19th annual convention of the Association of Lincoln Presenters has attracted around three dozen Abes in chin beards and full regalia, along with 30 or so Mary Todd Lincolns and various other Civil War-era figures, including Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. I tell people I think we hold this convention just so we can run around in our costumes all weekend, said Cooper, a retired Defense Department parts manager. In Columbus, the Lincoln impersonators will walk where he walked and where he lay in state after he was assassinated in 1865. Lincoln gave speeches at the Ohio Statehouse in 1859 and 1861, and his casket rested in the buildings rotunda for six hours on its way from Washington back to Illinois for burial. More than 50,000 stood in line to pay their respects. On Friday morning, Jerry Payn, a Lincoln from Wooster, Ohio, stepped to the podium in the Ohio House chamber and delivered word-for-word the speech given by Lincoln in the same room just before his inauguration in 1861. Payn, a 74-year-old retired junior high school science teacher, has been playing Lincoln since 1999 and does as many as 100 gigs a year. He says the key to being a great Lincoln is gaining in-depth knowledge of his life, speeches and writings. When I first started, Im ashamed to say I was one of the dumbest guys there ever was about Abraham Lincoln, said Payn, whose wife, Marilyn, has become a Mary Todd Lincoln impersonator. At this point I can talk about anything about his whole life. The Lincolns have a certain spring in their step this year thanks to a wave of attention brought by the Steven Spielberg movie Lincoln, which earned an Oscar for Daniel Day-Lewis for his portrayal of Honest Abe. Some of the impersonators say the excitement has led to more work for them. They can fetch several hundred dollars and up for appearances. The Abes in Columbus range from well under 6 feet tall to Lincolns actual height of 6-foot-4. Some are barrel-chested, some slight. There are gray beards and black beards, and one beardless Lincoln. The costumes vary greatly in extravagance. Were presenters. Were not impersonators, necessarily, Broski said. You dont have to look like Mr. Lincoln. But if you take a beard, a top hat and a frock coat and put it on, people instantly know who you are. Whats important is getting across his character, his honesty, his integrity. Glenn Kilgus, 81INVERNESSGlenn Arthur Kilgus, 81, of Inverness, went to be with his Savior on Thursday, April 11, 2013, at Hospice of Citrus County in Inverness.

Glenn was Christian by faith and attended Our Lady of Fatima Parish. His lifelong hobby of making clocks was a much enjoyed pastime. If you were a good friend of his, chances are you are the owner of one of his clocks. His clocks always came with a lifetime guarantee of repairs. Glenn donated many clocks for fundraisers, he sold none of them; he just enjoyed making them. He was preceded in death by his parents, Alfred Kilgus and Helen (Flint) Kilgus; and his brother, Alfred Kilgus.

Glenn Kilgus Obituaries Comic Jonathan Winters dies Associated PressLOS ANGELES Jonathan Winters, the cherub-faced comedian whose breakneck improvisations and misfit characters inspired the likes of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey, has died. He was 87. The Ohio native died Thursday evening at his Montecito, Calif., home of natural causes, said Joe Petro III, a longtime friend. He was surrounded by family and friends. Winters was a pioneer of improvisational standup comedy, with an exceptional gift for mimicry, a grab bag of eccentric personalities and a bottomless reservoir of creative energy. Facial contortions, sound effects, tall tales all could be used in a matter of seconds to get a laugh. Jonathan Winters was the worthy custodian of a sparkling and childish comedic genius. He did Gods work. I was lucky 2 know him, Carrey tweeted on Friday. On Jack Paars television show in 1964, Winters was handed a footlong stick and he swiftly became a fisherman, violinist, lion tamer, canoeist, U.N. diplomat, bullfighter, flutist, delusional psychiatric patient, British headmaster and Bing Crosbys golf club. As a kid, I always wanted to be lots of things, he told U.S. News & World Report in 1988. I was a Walter Mitty type. I wanted to be in the French Foreign Legion, a detective, a doctor, a test pilot with a scarf, a fisherman who hauled in a tremendous marlin after a 12-hour fight. The humor most often was based in reality his characters Maude Frickert and Elwood P Suggins, for example, were based on people Winters knew growing up in Ohio. A devotee of Groucho Marx and Laurel and Hardy, Winters and his free-for-all brand of humor inspired Johnny Carson, Billy Crystal, Tracey Ullman and Lily Tomlin, among many others. But Williams and Carrey are his best-known followers. Williams helped introduce Winters to millions of new fans in 1981 as the son of Williams goofball alien and his earthling wife in the final season of ABCs Mork and Mindy. The two often strayed from the script. The best stuff was before the cameras were on, when he was open and free to create, Williams once said. Jonathan would just blow the doors off. Winters only Emmy was for bestsupporting actor for playing Randy Quaids father in the sitcom Davis Rules (1991). He was nominated again in 2003 as outstanding guest actor in a comedy series for an appearance on Life With Bonnie. He also won two Grammys: One for his work on The Little Prince album in 1975 and another for his Crank Calls comedy album in 1996. The Internet Movie Database website credits him as the voice of Papa in the forthcoming The Smurfs 2 film. Winters wife, Eileen, died in 2009. He is survived by two children, Lucinda Winters and Jay Winters. Lincoln impersonators rub gangly elbows in Ohio Associated PressThis undated file image shows comedian and actor Jonathan Winters.

Special to the ChronicleLast week, agencies across the state of Florida celebrated Childrens Week. On Tuesday, the Board of County Commissioners proclaimed April 9 as Parents and Childrens Day. Childrens Week is a joint effort by many different nonprofit, corporate, philanthropic and faithbased organizations along with state agencies. Childrens Week develops and implements more than 200 community events and activities state-wide, bringing thousands of parents, children, policy makers, professionals and community leaders. The Family Fun Day kicked off Childrens Week April 6 at Little Spring Park behind city hall in Crystal River. The event was organized by the Community Alliance of Citrus County and Devereux Kids. This was the first Family Fun Day in conjunction with Childrens Week that has been held, and we were thrilled with the turnout, said Renea Teaster, facilitator for the Community Alliance of Citrus County, adding that close to 400 people attended the event. The Family Fun Day event was planned by a Community Alliance committee led by the Chair, Cara Meeks of the Devereux Kids Crystal River Neighborhood Project. Cara is very passionate about the work that she does, and she put a lot of effort and personal time into planning the Family Fun Day, said Teaster. We are so thankful to have her as the chairperson for Childrens Week, and for the excellent job she has done in organizing many of the events. She goes the extra mile in preparing for events like this because she loves children and families, and wants the very best for our kids here in Citrus County. The Family Fun Day included music by local youth band Out of Key, games and other activities for children. The event also provided valuable information to parents about the resources available to them and their children. Local representatives from state agencies such as DCF, Kids Central and Access Florida were on hand as well as organizations such as the fire department, Child ID (CCSO), YMCA, Healthy Start and the Citrus County Library System. A free picnic lunch was served. Teaster said all the food and beverages were donated by local organizations and businesses. Contributing to the picnic lunch, were: Mike Scott Plumbing, Lee and Celina Jones, the Agricultural Alliance, We Care Food Pantry, Ferris Groves, DRC Sports and M & B Dairy. Other events of note include: Hanging of Hands Children from all over the area were included through different organizations such as the YMCA, the Boys & Girls Clubs and local daycares in the making of hands fashioned out of construction paper. Many of the hands were decorated with jewellery, while some were transformed into animals and insects. The hands are in each of the local libraries and the Citrus County Courthouse.

County celebrates Childrens Week Associated PressKISSIMMEE The way Alex Benepe remembers it, his roommates idea to make quidditch more than a broom-riding fantasy confined to books and the big screen began as only a passing thought as they stared out their dorm window at the vast field known as Battell Beach. He and Xander Manshel were freshmen at Middlebury College in Vermont in 2005, staring at the field ironically named in the chilly, landlocked state. Manshel was bored with the Sunday tradition of bocce ball and was looking for a change. We were really lucky. It was really the perfect place to start quidditch, Benepe said. Now, eight years later, the fictional game once only played by characters in the popular Harry Potter books is played at more than 1,000 college campuses on three continents. Manshel scribbled down a makeshift rulebook based in part on the books and elements of lacrosse, rugby and dodge ball. Intramural matches began at Middlebury in 2007. Benepe founded the International Quidditch Association three years later, and the game is now played in North America, Europe and Australia. Today and Sunday in Kissimmee, IQA will host 80 teams and more than 1,600 players for its annual World Cup event. The first three were at Middlebury, and the past two were in New York. Of more than 300 active co-ed teams globally, about 250 pay team dues of $150 to IQA and travel for matches. Thats quite an evolution from its ragtag beginnings, Benepe said: Garbage cans once served as hoops, with some players fashioning capes out of towels taped to their shirts.

ALEXVEIGA AP business writerThis weekend may not be very relaxing for millions of taxpayers. Thats because theyre beginning the last-minute scramble to file their returns Monday. Even with the advent of electronic filing, many Americans may not be able to deliver their tax return before the 11:59 p.m. Monday deadline. If youre in this group, it may be OK. The IRS will give you until Oct. 15 to file your return if you ask for an extension by midnight Monday. Last year, 10.7 million Americans did just that. But an extension wont buy you more time if you owe Uncle Sam any federal income taxes. And failing to pay by Mondays deadline means you will incur interest charges and fees on top of what you owe. Your extension is not extending your payment time, said Jackie Perlman, principal tax analyst at the research arm of H&R Block. Still scrambling? Here are some guidelines for how to go about filing for an extension on your tax return and address a late filing if you owe income tax: HOW TO FILE: Tax returns are due by midnight on Monday. If youre going to miss the deadline, file a request for an extension with the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS accepts extension requests several ways: By mail, via tax-preparation software, through a paid tax preparer, or online via the IRS website, www.irs.gov. SELECT THE RIGHT FORM: To request the extension, you must fill out IRS Form 4868, which is available on the IRS website, through most tax preparation software, as well as in public libraries and post offices. If you opt to mail in the form it has to be postmarked by Monday to be considered on time. Forms filed online on the IRS website or by using tax software can be sent in as late as 11:59 p.m. Monday. One bonus of filing online is the IRS will confirm receipt of the request form right away. ESTIMATE HOW MUCH YOU OWE: When you fill out the form, the IRS requires you estimate how much income taxes you owe and pay that amount. If you file for an extension online, you can also pay what you owe through an electronic funds withdrawal from a checking or savings account. The IRS also accepts credit and debit cards, as well as checks and money orders. PAY UP AVOID PENAL TIES: Failing to pay your tax bill by the Monday deadline means youll incur a slew of interest and penalty charges on what you owe. The IRS assesses a monthly penalty of 0.5 percent of the balance owed, plus interest of 3 percent per year, compounded daily. The last thing you want to do is miss the tax filing deadline and not ask for an extension. That triggers a penalty of 5 percent of the tax owed for each month the tax return is late. CONSIDER A PAYMENT AGREEMENT: If you cant pay the full amount you owe on time, you may be able to set up a payment plan with the IRS. Taxpayers who owe $50,000 or less, including penalties and interest, can arrange to pay on a monthly basis for up to 72 months. You can do this before receiving a late-payment notice from the IRS. Youll need to fill out and mail IRS Form 9465, which can be downloaded on the IRS website, along with your tax return. The IRS also may determine youre eligible for an offer-in-compromise, which essentially allows taxpayers to pay less than what they owe. To figure out if youre eligible, use the pre-qualifier tool on the IRS website. REMEMBER YOU ONLY GET 6 MONTHS EXTRA: Once the IRS accepts your extension request, youll have until Oct. 15 to file a complete tax return. The IRS wont give any more time. If you file after that, your return is considered delinquent, P erlman said. WHAT IF YOURE DUE A REFUND? If youve calculated youre due a refund but wont be able to file your return on time, its not necessary to file for an extension. Tax refunds not claimed within three years become property of the U.S. Treasury.

Interest rates SATURDAY, APRIL13, 2013 A7 Energy slides Stocks end advance Associated PressNEW YORK A four-day surge in the stock market came to an end Friday as falling commodity prices brought down energy and mining companies. Signs of a slowing economy rattled commodity markets. The price of crude oil dropped 2 percent to $91 a barrel as weak U.S. economic reports followed forecasts for weaker oil demand. Gold plunged $64 to $1,501 an ounce, reaching its lowest level since July 2011. Prices for other metals including silver and copper also fell sharply. One trigger for the latest fall was a government report that U.S. wholesale prices declined the most in 10 months in March. Traders tend to sell metals when inflation wanes. They also pushed gold prices lower on reports that Cyprus may sell some of its gold reserves, possibly leading other weak European countries like Italy and Spain to do the same. Compared to commodities markets, the stock market looked stable. The Dow Jones industrial average dropped just 0.08 of a point to close at 14,865.05. The Standard & Poors 500 lost 4.52 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,588.85. The two major indexes finished the week with strong gains: The Dow rose 2.1 percent, the S&P 500 rose 2.3 percent. David Joy, the chief market strategist for Ameriprise Financial, said its as if the stock market is telling a different story from the bond and commodity markets. Copper and other industrial metals slid along with gold on Friday, while Treasury yields sank near their lows for the year. He said both imply traders in those markets are more worried about a slowdown. It gives me pause, Joy said. Commodities and bonds are telling stock investors: dont be in such a hurry to say the U.S. economy is in great shape. The sharp drop in gold futures tugged down mining companies. Barrick Gold lost 8 percent to $22.62, Newmont Mining fell 6 percent to $36.37 and FreeportMcMoRan 3 percent to $31.92. Materials and energy stocks fell the most of the 10 industry groups in the S&P 500, 1.5 percent and 1.3 percent. Sources: FactSet; Deutsche Bank Markets Research Trevor Delaney; J. Paschke APAirline stocks have been hard to beat this year. The NYSE Arca airline index, a measure of the largest companies in the industry, is up 26 percent. Thats more than double the 11 percent climb of the Standard & Poors 500 index. The airline industry was once filled with dozens of carriers, but consolidation has enabled the surviving airlines to offer a larger network of routes that appeal to high-paying business travelers. And it has allowed them to limit the supply of seats, which helps prop up fares and airline profits. The pending merger of American Airlines and US Airways will leave four big airlines that will dominate the domestic travel market the post-merger American, United, Delta and Southwest and a smattering of smaller rivals. The stocks of major U.S. airlines slid last week after a measure of March revenue proved disappointing. One key factor was that automatic federal budget cuts were starting to have an impact on government air travel. Michael Linenberg, a financial analyst at Deutsche Bank, responded to the price drop by noting that management teams across the industry are more disciplined than in the past and have effectively dealt with greater challenges. He says the stock market has yet to recognize fully the airlines improved performance and that the drop in airline stocks should be viewed as a buying opportunity. 100 115 130% NYSE Arca airline index S&P 500 index 26% 11% Financial analyst Michael Linenberg of Deutsche Bank says these airline stocks can continue to climb.

OPINION Browns affair none of our businessHe who has not sinned may cast the first stone. FDLE investigators found that Ms. Laura Barfield misused a state credit card for personal use. This investigation should have ended there. To bring Mr. Eber Browns affairs to light in the investigation is an outrage. Mr. Eber Brown served this county with honor and never misused county funds. His personal life has nothing to do with his service to this county. Why does government like to smear men of good service? We dont need government in our bedrooms. I personally know Mr. Brown and I can tell you people of Citrus County he served us very well. I am ashamed at Mr. Schembri on his comment that he was shocked. South Carolina had a governor who acted in this same fashion and he is being elected once again. Mr. Clinton was president and he had an affair. Why does FDLE, a law enforcement agency, release this information? It had nothing to do with the criminal act of Laura Barfield. It seems to me that FDLE has wasted time on this affair and their time is taxpayers money. They should just stick to the criminal acts and not love affairs of others. Who is perfect in this world? FDLE should stay of the bedroom unless, of course, a crime is committed there. Now is FDLE going to give us back the tax monies investigating this affair? It is not a crime to have an affair and many public officials have them. Charles Knecht DunnellonAmerica is damaged, troubledEven after rereading Joe Spotos well-written letter of March 23, I failed to find that he identified his party, as E.G. Yerian assumes (April 4). However, he did not fail to accurately describe our countrys obvious deterioration from what he coined Old America the one I grew up in, worked to be successful in, respected, and served (in the Navy). It is certainly easy to see the sorry state our country has fallen into; unless, of course, you dont take your blinders off, open your mind, or put fault where it belongs. How ridiculous to blame Bush and Cheney. It would be laughable, but sadly, theres nothing funny about the trouble lurking at every aspect and turn. Obama has worn (and boasted) the titles of commander and leader for more than four years yet he continues to preach empty promises with boring speeches that havent changed since his first campaign. He spends trillions of dollars and wants more, ignores questions, and smiles as he leads the downhill spiral of traditions and a hopeful future. Believing Americas power is invincible, that optimism is a magical cure; and that we are able to overcome any obstacle thrown in our way is denial. Its dangerous. The president may be intelligent but his sincere passion does not excuse his failures. This is not a dream world, so wake up, and invest time in researching the facts. America is damaged. America is troubled. As Mr. Spoto said, so much is gone and its not coming back. God bless America.Joanie Welch Inverness Gov. Rick Scott needs to see a bill to determine whether he believes Florida should ban texting while driving. He needs to see the bill to determine whether he supports lifelong alimony. On Monday, he told the Palm Beach PostEditorial Board he didnt know which Senate alternative to expanding Medicaid he prefers. Theres the bill that will insure nearly 1 million Floridians and guarantee a minimum level of benefits, or the one that gives 600,000 uninsured Floridians $120 a year for medical expenses. To let Scott tell it, he hasnt seen the proposed legislation on most of the key issues being debated in Tallahassee. And he cant take a position on these issues until he sees the fine print. Man up, governor! First, it doesnt instill confidence in his leadership that Scott doesnt know the details of major bills. Second, he doesnt instill confidence in his leadership that he needs to see the specifics of a bill to know whether he supports the concept in general. After more than two years in the job, Scott is still claiming to be a businessman not a politician. If you dodge questions like a politician, repeat talking points like a politician and lack the guts to take a position like a politician, then youre a politician. In that way Scott is like the 31 U.S. senators, including Floridas Marco Rubio, who voted Thursday to filibuster a debate on gun safety legislation. I dont know what if any impact the various proposed measures will have on gun violence in America. I do know that every member of Congress owes his or her constituents an open debate and a vote. A filibuster is a copout. I dont understand it, Sen. John McCain said. The purpose of the United States Senate is to debate and to vote and to let the people know where we stand What are we afraid of? Of being held accountable. Thats what theyre afraid of. Rubio, who has eyes on the 2016 presidential race, is hanging his filibuster vote on the Second Amendment. Many Floridians, including our large number of hunters and sportsmen, use guns regularly and responsibly and do not deserve to be harassed or further regulated, he said. The way to increase safety is not to take away the rights of responsible gun owners, including those wishing to protect themselves and their loved ones. If the final legislation, after its debated and amended, takes away the rights of responsible gun owners, which is highly unlikely, Rubio is free to vote against it. But to try to deny the 90 percent of Americans who want expanded background checks on gun buyers a vote is the wrong move. As was Rubios failure to respond to a call and tweets from the 27-year-daughter of slain Sandy Hook Elementary School principal Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung. Erica Lafferty called 14 of the senators who threatened to filibuster to appeal to their humanity. Only one senator called her back. It wasnt Rubio. No matter. The 68 senators who voted to bring gun legislation to the floor have ensured that Rubio and the 30 others will be held accountable. No matter how Rubio votes, hes going to have to defend his position if he seeks the White House in 2016. Mayors Against Illegal Guns is already running an ad in Florida slamming him for the filibuster vote. If by some miracle he votes in favor of gun safety legislation, he will have to contend with the wrath of the NRA and conservatives who oppose stricter gun laws. Thats how it should be. Lawmakers who cant make tough choices and stand by them dont belong in office. As for Scott, he snubbed newspaper editorial boards when he ran for office in 2010. His sagging approval ratings as he looks to 2014 and whats expected to be a tough re-election campaign have since convinced him that he needs editorial boards to get out his message. The message hes sending with his inability to articulate a position is hes ill equipped for the job.Rhonda Swan is an editorial writer for The Palm Beach Postand author of Dancing to the Rhythm of My Soul: A Sisters Guide for Transforming Madness into Gladness.

While Brown is not implicated at all in any criminal wrongdoing, it is an unfortunate revelation for those who perceived Brown as the embodiment of a do-right public servant. Browns reputation as a highly competent, hard working, behindthe-scenes administrator is not affected by this latest disclosure. However, his decision-making process related to the incident leaves everyone asking questions. Laura Barfield, a manager of the FDLE alcohol testing program, resigned following an internal investigation that showed she charged more than $5,000 to her state-issued credit card for personal items, including a pair of Carnival Cruise tickets. The report stated Barfield spent several nights with Brown at his Citrus Hills home while telling her supervisors she was traveling to and from court appearances throughout the state. Brown did not use public money, nor misuse his post while working for Citrus County, but servants of the community are held to a much higher personal standard and therefore are under higher scrutiny from the public. This should serve as a lesson to others working in local government that they must not live by a double standard, and must refrain from abusing the publics trust, both from their conduct on a professional and personal level.

One of the reasons we purchased in Sugarmill Woods was because of the beautiful green space. In our neighborhood, the green space is being used as a camp and a future baseball field.

SOUND OFFCALL 563-0579 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Rhonda Swan FLORIDA VOICES Hot Corner: CASINOPage A8SATURDAY APRIL, 13, 2013 Love visiting casinosIm calling about the person that doesnt like the idea to turn the mall into a casino. I go to Hard Rock at least every other week and theres plenty of security. Its never a problem there. You really dont know what youre talking about until you go. Theres plenty of security. The mall would be a great place for a casino. Citrus County needs money and it would mean no unemployment for anybody. There would be plenty of money for streets, parks, fire department and police department. Think about it. The mall is failing.Editors note: In Florida, traditional casinos can only be owned and operated by Indian tribes, who keep the money for their tribes. There are eight casinos in Florida, seven owned by the Seminole tribe and one by the Miccosukee tribe. The state does receive some revenue $150 million per year from the Seminole tribe as part of a 20-year agreement signed by Gov. Charlie Crist in 2009.Cant build casinos hereHere we go again. Theyre already arguing about a casino at the mall. Well, you cant do it. The Hard Rock is owned by the Seminole Indians and that is a separate nation. They set their own rules. So you couldnt do that. And the second thing is about (JJ) Kenney. Dont play the games with Scott Adams, Mr. Kenney. Nobody doubts your integrity except him and hes only in it to try to get his money and bully people.Everybody winsEverybody wins with a casino your local restaurants, your local hotels, the schools from the taxes that it will bring in, jobs. Believe me, people do travel to go to casinos and theyre not people that you think are going to rob you in the parking lot. So please, everybody call their local officials, have them go to Tallahassee and petition this. This would be fantastic for our county.Would spend moneyTurning the mall in Crystal River into a casino is a very, very good idea. Im a senior citizen. I have never shopped at that mall to spend $1,000, but I take $1,000 every month, its once a month, I take $1,000 and I go to Biloxi, Miss. So instead of Mississippi getting my money, Citrus County would get the money. Its a heck of a good idea. We need to wake up.

Upon hearing the words, Im from the federal government and Im here to help you, anyone over the age of reason clutches his wallet. Think of that statement as todays equivalent of Dont worry, the check is in the mail. This loss of confidence is not a passing phase; government really has become more incompetent and alienated from the public. Until the 1930s, government limited itself to a few things that everyone thought it should do. Armies fought wars, police caught criminals, judges jailed them and fire departments put out fires. Soon afterward, government began doing a poorer job on its historical chores. Police and teachers took on the additional roles of social worker and counselor with less time and intensity devoted to core functions. Another example? Why do VA claims take years to process? Currently, there are 35 federal job training and education programs, each with offices, supervisors, staff, and big budgets. It would be nice of these extra assignments actually worked but they dont and the streets are dirtier than before. Sadly, failure is tolerated and often excused because too many believe government when they tell us their hearts are in the right place, their intentions are good and if only more money were expended all would be well. During the Carter administration, bowing to pressure from teacher unions, a brand new Department of Education was created. Americans got beautiful buildings, thousands of staff, dozens of supervisors and travel coordinators and an ever-increasing taxpayerfunded budget. We were told education was a top priority and success was necessary so students could handle the high tech jobs of the future. More than 40 years later, graduation rates and SAT scores are essentially unchanged. Im reminded of philosopher George Santayanas statement, Those who can not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. Heres a thought: If the department didnt do what it promised, why dont we eliminate it? We could use that money to pay down a bit of our $17 trillion debt instead of raising even more revenue to do so. We might even be able to afford tours of the White House and funds to send aircraft carriers to where they are needed.Joseph P Ryan HomosassaSeeking equal rights, not special favorSome people seem to get a great deal of pleasure in judging others. The gay rights debate is nonsense. Homosexuals are not asking for special treatment just equal treatment under the law. Some of the reasons people use to refuse equal treatment are just plain silly and stupid. They say the purpose of marriage is to procreate. I guess men and women who are medically unable to produce a child should be denied the right to marry and once you have passed the child-bearing years, you have to divorce. To me the purpose of marriage is all about love. If two people love one another and want to make a public commitment to each other they should have the right to do so. If they choose to have children, either by natural or alternative means, that is their decision. My husband and I met and married in our 40s and agreed not to have children. I guess by some peoples thinking, we should have never been allowed to marry at all. Two moms, two dads, single parent or a mom and dad have an obligation to provide children with a loving home where they will feel safe and secure. Some would argue that children in homes with same-sex parents would wind up being abused. These are the people who obviously dont know the difference between homosexuality and pedophilia. Religious reasons are also given by some as a reason for not allowing same-sex marriage. These people should remember that in our country there is a separation of church and state and while I respect their views, I will not allow them to force their beliefs on others. Homosexuality is no more a choice than having blue eyes, brown hair, freckles or any other human trait we are born with. To those who are thumping their Bibles in protest of homosexual marriage, I suggest they re-read the part that warns about Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged. Homosexual couples are asking for the same rights as other couples. The right to marry, the right to adopt children, the right to spousal benefits, the right to make medical decisions for incapacitated partners, the right to inherit estates, the right to equal treatment under the law and the right to live their lives as they wish. Why on earth is this considered dangerous and a threat to anyone?Evlyn Skurow Crystal RiverWork together to solve problemsIn 1940, FDR signed into law by executive order the Bracero Act. This program provided a means for the Mexican farmworker obtain a six month green card so they could perform farm and ranch work in the U.S. legally. We were gearing up for war and the American labor force was concentrating on building military material for the up coming war therefore going to work away from the farms. During the 1980s, Ronald Reagan did away with Bracero Act by executive order. He wanted congress to establish an up to date foreign worker program. He should have waited for congress to act first. He put the cart before the horse. Develop new legislation before you eliminate an existing working program. It has been in the hands of congress ever since with no resolution. It is important to re-establish an immigration plan that provides a legal method for the foreign farm worker to perform in the U.S. and then go home as required. So why is this needed when much of the farm work is mechanized? Well you dont plant and harvest such foods as tomatoes, strawberries and many other food items by machine. It requires hard hands on farm labor and the typical American does not want to do this back breaking work that the Mexican farm laborer is willing to do. Of course there is the issue of border security and that is another reason to establish legal documented farm labor. Along the Mexican border illegal import of laborers is a real problem, but the actual true problem is the drug cartels and the illegal transport of drugs into the U.S. Lets not mix up the two groups. If we have a legitimate means for the farm worker to come into the U.S., the U.S. Border Patrol would be able to provide more efficient protection of our country. There should be no need for the border patrol to expend huge resources looking for illegal farm workers who are no threat to us. Their resources should concentrated on illegal drug traffic and possible smuggled terrorists. The legal foreign farm labor issue is very important to the economy of the U.S. If the Mexican farm laborer was eliminated it is well documented that you would see a large variety of your food increase is by as much as 300 percent. So lets hope that congress gets away from the anti-Obama attitude for a change and begins to function as governing organization for the good of the USA. We the people deserve representation that is willing to perform in a governing manner as apposed to the petty political discourse that we have seen for the past four years. It is not the job of the congress to attempt to make the president look bad. They were elected to perform as legislators, not competing gunslingers of the old west.Dan Groner LecantoStop freeloading nationsSomething happened in this world and we are running. We are spending trillions of dollars of our treasury to support freeloader nations such as Germany and Japan by using our troops to defend their interest among ours. Their active participation in a conflict comes to zero compared to our involvement. Germany spends, according to the World Bank, 1.3 percent of their GDP for defense, Japan 1 percent compared to 4.7 percent for the U.S. Our men and women coming home shot into pieces, so these freeloader nations can use their money to develop their infrastructure and economy.

I recently attended a meeting at the Seminole Club addressing the essential project of ridding our waterways of the noxious substance called lyngbya. It was my understanding during this meeting that all relevant permit, guidelines and restrictions would be strictly followed. There has now been another meeting called by Mr. (Patrick) Rose, paid executive of the Save the Manatee Club, for Thursday. I believe the only action required on his part is to stand aside and let all of the agencies involved, do their job.Sam Williams Crystal River Sound OFF Slip-sliding awayThis is answer to keeping squirrels out of the birdfeeder.

You put a lot of grease on the pole, the little stashers try to get up on the pole and they try and try and they slide right down. So put lots of grease on there if youve got a pole with a birdfeeder on it. Its really comic and it works.Beware phishingBeware of a new online PayPal scam.

US team using Twitter, Facebook to fight militants Associated PressNAIROBI, Kenya The U.S. official who oversees American efforts to counter al-Qaida and other militants in the online battlefield keeps a quote on his desk from a Most Wanted jihadi from Americas South. The Alabama native wrote that the war of narratives has become even more important than the war of navies, napalm and knives. I keep that on my desk because that is true, Alberto Fernandez, the top official at the State Departments Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications, told The Associated Press. It doesnt mean I think hes a great thinker or anything. I just thought that was right. The wanted fighter behind the quote is Omar Hammami, who joined the Somali militant group alShabab about seven years ago and is a prolific user of Twitter, where he nostalgically posts about America like the U.S. childrens television show Reading Rainbow or his grandmothers cooking as well as analyses of al-Shababs battlefield strategy. Fernandez Digital Outreach Team has had online exchanges with Hammami in Arabic, though Fernandez says that while Hammami is engaging, silly and flippant in English, his Arabic is staged and formal, as if someone is doing it for him. One example of that flippancy: After the U.S. recently announced a $5 million reward for Hammami he responded on Twitter: As Im a bit low on cash, how much is my left leg going for? Hammami, Fernandez said, has responded to the U.S. online efforts in superficial ways ... he hasnt engaged in a substantive way. We are focused on specifics on al-Qaida/al-Shabab actions in Somalia, their violence and brutality against the Somali people, the disconnect between their words and their actions, Fernandez said in a telephone interview from Washington. A week ago they beheaded an 80-year-old Somali imam for disagreeing with them. The Digital Outreach Team tweets, posts updates on Facebook and uploads video to YouTube in Arabic, Punjabi, Somali and Urdu. The 50-member team is comprised of Americans and foreign nationals who are native speakers of the four languages. The unit had more than 7,000 what it terms engagements postings, updates or uploads in 2012, its second full year in operation. For example, on Wednesday the Digital Outreach Team said on its Arabic Facebook page that Jabhat al-Nusra, one of the most powerful Islamic militant groups fighting alongside Syrian rebels against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, is not in Syria to support the revolution and the Syrian people, but to impose al-Qaidas political agenda. Foreign fighters once mostly confined their online conversations to militant chat rooms and forums, but they have been migrating to more public Internet platforms in recent years, Fernandez said. The goal is to contest space that had previously been ceded to extremists, to confront them, to expose the bankruptcy and contradictions, the incoherence of al-Qaida, their friends and allies, said the Arabic-speaking Fernandez. Previously they could monopolize, they could post their lies and no one was there to challenge them. And now were there to challenge them on whatever platform theyre at. 110 years Associated PressLinnie Thuesen, 110, left, and her sister, 92-year-old Ida Mae Newman, talk Thursday while being serenaded by a mariachi band during Thuesens birthday celebration in San Antonio, Texas.

Obama pays $112k in taxesWASHINGTON President Barack Obamas 2012 tax returns show he and first lady Michelle Obama paid $112,214 in taxes last year on $608,611 in adjusted gross income. They paid an effective rate of 18.4 percent for their federal income taxes. The adjusted gross income figure is down from 2011, when the Obamas reported almost $790,000 in income. They made substantially more in previous years, with much of it coming from book sales. The Obamas reported donating $150,034 to 33 charities, just under one-quarter of their adjusted gross income. They donated $103,871 to Fisher House Foundation, which provides services to military members, veterans and their families. The president and the first lady also paid $29,450 in state income taxes to Illinois.Navy officer facing expulsionGROTON, Conn. A lawyer for a former submarine commander who faked his death to end an extramarital affair said his client knows he made a mistake but the Navy shouldnt throw away his talent and training. Navy Cmdr. Michael P. Ward II was relieved of his duties aboard the USS Pittsburgh in August. His lawyer spoke at a hearing Friday before a panel deciding whether Ward will be expelled from the service. A Navy investigation found the married 43-year-old sent his mistress in Virginia an email from a fictitious person named Bob in July, posing as a co-worker and saying Ward had died unexpectedly. Ward has received a letter of reprimand.

The Maricopa County Sheriffs Office said the package intercepted in Flagstaff late Thursday was addressed to Arpaio at his downtown Phoenix office. It had been left in a parcel locker in a rural part of Coconino County, outside the Flagstaff city limits. U.S. Postal Inspection Service spokesman Keith Moore said a courier brought it into the main post office in Flagstaff, and authorities used a water cannon to neutralize the package. Moore said laboratory testing will determine whether the contents of the package actually would have exploded.

The fighting began at dawn and lasted about five hours in the Nari district of Kunar province, Defense Ministry spokesman Mohammad Zahir Azimi said. He said 13 Afghan soldiers were killed. Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack and said the insurgents captured the base, seizing ammunition and weapons.

Upper-income Medicare hike Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obamas plan to raise Medicare premiums for upper-income seniors would create five new income brackets to squeeze more revenue for the government from the top tiers of retirees, the administration revealed Friday. First details of the plan emerged after Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified to Congress on the presidents budget. As released two days earlier, the budget included only a vague description of a controversial proposal that has grown more ambitious since Obama last floated it. Means testing has been part of Medicare since the George W. Bush administration, but ramping it up is bound to stir controversy. Republicans are intrigued, but most Democrats dont like the idea. The plan itself is complicated. The bottom line is not: more money for the government. Obamas new budget calls for raising $50 billion over 10 years by increasing monthly income-related premiums for outpatient and prescription drug coverage. The comparable number last year was $28 billion over the decade. Currently, single beneficiaries making more than $85,000 a year and couples earning more than $170,000 pay higher premiums. Obamas plan would raise the premiums themselves and also freeze adjustments for inflation until 1 in 4 Medicare recipients were paying the higher charges. Right now, the higher monthly charges hit only about 1 in 20 Medicare recipients. House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, RWis., asked Sebelius about the new proposal on Friday, noting it would raise significantly more revenue. Part of the reason for the additional federal revenue is that Obamas 2014 budget projects an additional year of money from the proposals. The rest of the answer has to do with the administrations new brackets. Starting in 2017, there would be nine income brackets on which the higher premiums would be charged. There are only four now. If the proposal were in effect today, a retiree making $85,000 would pay about $168 a month for outpatient coverage, compared to $146.90 currently. Under current law, the next bump up doesnt come until an individual makes more than $107,000. Under Obamas plan, it would come when that person crosses the line at $92,333. If the plan were in effect today, the beneficiary would pay about $195 a month for outpatient coverage under Medicares Part B, rather than $146.90. The top income step currently more than $214,000 would be lowered to $196,000. And individuals in the new top tier would pay 90 percent of the cost of their outpatient coverage, compared to 80 percent currently. Brits, Americans feud over park Associated PressPORTLAND, Ore. The British and the Americans are quarreling albeit with tongues in cheek over territory again, this time over who has the worlds smallest park. One, in Portland, Ore., is essentially a concrete planter, 2 feet in diameter, with soil and some vegetation, and the Guinness Book of World Records says its the smallest. The other is about 5,000 miles away, in England. Those guys dont claim to have a physically smaller park theirs is 15 feet by 30 feet. But they are disputing whether Portlands is a park at all. What started as two Brits stunt to drum up publicity for a charity run at their park sparked some cross-pond banter. One online commenter wrote: If thats a park then my window box should take the title. Someone who said they were from Portland replied: Yes, but our park has leprechauns. Does yours? Leprechauns? Yes, thats right. The faux-feud has helped unearth the curious story of a Portland newspaper columnists quest to get the park declared the smallest and his claim that it was home to leprechauns. Somehow, Guinness proclaimed Mill Ends Park the worlds smallest park in 1971. Jamie Panas, the record-keepers spokeswoman, said she didnt know how that determination was made. But she said the entry in the Guinness database reads, in part: It was designated as a city park on 17 March 1948 at the behest of the city journalist Dick Fagan (USA) for snail races and as a colony for leprechauns. Associated PressAllison Wildman crouches low Thursday to get a photo of Mill Ends Park in Portland, Ore. Tiny battle lines are being drawn in a whimsical BritishAmerican dispute over which country has the worlds smallest park.

The 14-year-old from China isnt going anywhere in a hurry. And this Masters is still a long way from taking shape. Despite being the first player at Augusta National to get hit with a one-shot penalty for slow play, teen sensation Guan Tianlang still made history Friday as the youngest player to make the cut in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event. And it came down to the last shot of a wild and windy day. Jason Day could have sent the kid home early with a birdie from just off the front of the green on the 18th hole. But the Australian was wide left and tapped in for par, giving him a 4-under 68 and a one-shot lead over fellow Aussie Marc Leishman and the ageless Fred Couples. The par meant that Guan, who had one shot added to his score on the 17th hole for his second bad time of the round made the cut under the 10-shot rule. If I can make it, I would be really happy for it, Guan said some five hours earlier. But if I didnt make it, its still a great week. Hes now part of a weekend at Augusta that should be as dynamic as ever. Day was at 6-under 138, and 18 players were within four shots of the lead, including Tiger Woods. Woods moved into a share of the lead with a two-putt birdie on the eighth hole, and his game looked to be as sharp as ever perhaps too sharp. Right when it looked like he might take the outright lead, Woods hit a lob wedge that was so perfect it hit the flag on the par-5 15th and caromed backward off the Associated PressTiger Woods watches his tee shot Friday on the 14th hole during the second round of the Masters in Augusta, Ga. Woods is tied for seventh entering the weekend at 3-under par. Jason Day leads the field by one stroke at 6-under par.

Crystal River (6-13 overall, 3-7 district) took advantage of a couple of Tiger errors and a sacrifice fly by senior left fielder Dallas Baldner to narrow its deficit to 2-1 in the fifth before Dunnellon (9-12 overall, 5-5 district) exploded for four runs on three hits and a pair of walks later in the inning while sending its entire lineup to the plate. The Tigers (11 hits) added two more insurance runs off two more hits in the sixth, giving Roberson (three strikeouts, two walks, no earned runs) plenty of support for the complete-game win. We came out very flat, with no drive or intensity, Crystal River head coach Bobby Stack said. If we dont come out with fire then were not going to win games. Because were young and going through our lumps, we have to have a high level of concentration throughout the game to even think about winning. Weve got some innings to chew up next week to try to pull it together, but its real disappointing to go from playing decent baseball to this, Stack continued. Weve got to stay positive and hopefully something good comes out of the week to get us into a better state of mind for the district tournament.

It was a good hitting game tonight but we made too many base running mistakes. But amongst all that, we held it together.

AUTORACING CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEB2SATURDAY, APRIL13, 2013 000EI71 000EFMQ Like a rolling Stone Driver currently leads Mini Stocks SEANARNOLD CorrespondentKevin Stone can vouch for the Citrus County Speedways motto as the friendliest track in the South. The 48-year-old Dade City driver felt an immediate bond with the racetrack and its community after giving the out-of-town venue a go in his second year of racing in 2005, and hes made the trip to Inverness ever since. We actually started out at the Auburndale Speedway (in Winter Haven) in 2004, Stone said. We liked the track and everything, but we came over here once and just got hooked on it. Its a great track. The people are nice and there are not a lot of problems. Its just a nice place to race. This year has been especially nice racing for Stone, whos chasing his first championship since entering the sport nine years ago at age 37. He and his yellow No. 98 are leading the point standings by 27 points after six races. Last Saturday, he became the divisions first driver to win a second feature race this season, with the five prior features yielding a different victor each week in the competitive class. Its just been trial and error, basically, Stone said in describing his development as a driver. One thing Ive learned is patience. Dont get overaggressive when you dont need to. This year were doing great and were going to try to win this thing this season thats the whole point. Multiple drivers winning races is part of the fun of it. Prior to Saturdays victory, Stone estimated hed won 18 features in total. Though he and his wife were longtime racing fans, raising a family delayed his opportunity to get involved. We always wanted to do it, but we just didnt have the time or money and the kids werent old enough, he said. Then they grew up enough to leave them alone and the old lady and I started to make it our Saturday night thing. Stone owns his four-cylinder racecar and receives sponsorship support from 98 Auto Recyclers of Brooksville and Reliance Auto Center of Dade City. The car was built by his friend Allen Prior, also of Dade City. I started hanging out with one of my friends that also raced here and I just wanted to build a car and try it for a little bit, Prior said. In contrast to some of the more high-end racing machines, Stone and Prior said maintaining a Mini Stock isnt very demanding once its equipped to race. I think the most time you spend on it is when you buy it as a stock car and gut it out take everything out and put the cage in it, Prior said. If you dont break anything in this class, you dont have to spend a lot of time on maintenance, Stone added. Youre always looking for speed advantages and trying new things, but as far as all-out maintenance, theres not a lot to it. Most of your time comes from the sheer building of it. Stone and the Mini Stock class race today at the Citrus County Speedway in Inverness, with heat races for all divisions beginning at 5:30 p.m. BUTCH CRAWFORD /For the ChronicleDade City resident Kevin Stone has won two feature races and currently leads the Mini Stocks division. Pro Challenge makes season debut SEANARNOLD CorrespondentThe Open Wheel Modified, Sportsman and Pure Stock classes run for the first time in six weeks while the Pro Challenge series makes its first appearance since the tracks season opener in February in todays action at the Citrus County Speedway. Hernandos Richie Smith looks for his third feature victory in four tries, while attempting to build on his 18-point lead in the standings. Smith has shown his No. 289 to be the fastest Open Wheel on the track this season, beginning with a wire-to-wire victory in the opener on Feb. 2. Since then, hes won from the 10th position and finished second after starting from the back at No. 17. With a feature win on Feb. 16, Super Late Model driver Herb Neumann Jr. is second in OWM points (299) as he moonlights in the No. 01 machine that his son Curtis won a championship with in 2009. The Sportsman division is the most competitive of the season so far as three different drivers have captured the checkered flag, leaving a one-point separation between the top three drivers Brooksvilles Mike Bell (304 points), Sarasotas Mark Peterson (303) and Beverly Hills Jay Witfoth (303). Those three will be looking out for Lakelands Aaron Williamson, who won the feature on Feb. 16 and erased most of Bells significant lead in the feature on March 2 for a second-place showing. Karlin Ray of Floral City (423 points) won his third feature of the season on March 2 to expand his ever-growing point advantage in Pure Stocks. Inverness Mike Autenrieth and Brooksvilles James Johnston are tied for second with 396 points apiece, while Bronsons Larry Welter Sr. is the only other driver outside Ray to win a feature. Also joining todays lineup are the Mini Stock and Dwarf divisions. Dade Citys Kevin Stone became the first two-time feature-winner of the season in the Mini Stock class last Saturday and now leads the class by 27 points. Weirsdales Jerry Daniels (596 points) and Belleviews Jason Terry (577) sit behind Stone, while Summerfields Shannon Kennedy (feature and heat win) lost ground after missing last weeks race and is now fourth with 505 points. Kennedy, Floral Citys Travis Sharrone, Spring Hills Jeff Eberly (two heat wins) and Lakelands Shawn Jenkins all have feature wins in Mini Stocks this season. Clayconas Darren Bass (217 points) leads Shane Butler (211) and Stan Butler (210) in the Dwarf standings. Bass went wire-to-wire in winning the seasons first Dwarf feature and nearly caught Bushnells Stan Butler in the March 9 feature to come in second. Delray Beachs Mark Landis won the first Pro Challenge feature at the Citrus County Speedway this season, but its Umatillas Paul White who leads the series standings after winning a pair of events at the Bronson Speedway in March.

Texas Motor Speedway is an ideal spot because Biffle and the entire Roush Fenway Racing team have had so much success there. Biffle is the defending race champion, too, and he cant wait for tonight. There is admittedly an extra emphasis and a different sense of urgency this weekend for Biffle, who struggled to a 17th-place finish last month at Las Vegas. That track is similar to Texas and the only 1 1/2-mile circuit NASCAR visited the first six races this season. We plain and simply screwed up at Vegas and I take most of the blame for that. We were just way off with the new car, said Biffle, who has gotten all 18 of his career wins on longer tracks. This track feels good. I had really good speed here. ... I think we have a good chance at winning. Right place, right time. After being fast in testing and practice, Biffle qualified his Ford 35th with a lap of 190.921 mph. As surprising as the struggles at Las Vegas were for Biffle was his solid, ninthplace finish last week at Martinsville, the half-mile track that is the shortest on the circuit. I just never thought that would happen to us, but that is just the way it works, said Biffle, sixth in season points. The 25th Cup race at the Texas speedway, which opened in 1997 and started hosting two races a year in 2005, will be the first night race this season and for the new Gen-6 cars. Busch boys will start out front Kyle Busch sets track record for pole Associated PressFORT WORTH, Texas Move over, brother. The Busch brothers will start on the front row for the second time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series after younger brother Kyle set a Texas qualifying record with a lap of 196.299 mph Friday night. That knocked Kurt off the pole, but not off the front row for tonights race. Not too shabby of a day. ... I feel like we have a good piece for the race, Kyle Busch said. It felt that good. Sometimes you feel that good and its not very fast. Kyle Busch went almost immediately from the Cup qualifying run in his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota to climbing into his Nationwide car and starting second in that race. It took that record qualifying lap by Kyle to knock Kurt Busch off the pole after his lap of 195.688 mph in his Chevrolet. A track record is a small feather in the cap, Kurt Busch said.

We accomplished what we wanted. Citrus, the No. 2 seed, plays third-seeded Springstead on Tuesday in the District 6A-6 semifinals at West Port High School in Ocala. The Warriors (10-8) play Hernando Christian on Tuesday in Brooksville for the District 2A-4 semifinals, looking to avenge two regular season losses to HCA in the regular season. Hurricanes starting pitcher Kayla Quesenberry put in a strong performance on the mound, holding Seven Rivers to four hits and striking out one batter. Tessa Kacer battled through taking a line drive off her hip in the second inning, doing her best to keep her Warriors in the game. Gabby Wright knocked in a run for Seven Rivers. In the top of the fourth inning, Corlew playing shortstop leapt and snagged a scorched line drive from Seven Rivers first baseman Rebecca Wright to get the last out of the inning. The game ended in the fifth inning after Seven Rivers fell behind by more than 10 runs and the game was called. With the playoffs days away, Corlew likes her teams chances. I think were at our peak in the season, she said. I think we need to keep up the same intensity. Quesenberry, a sophomore, sees a more focused and composed team than last season, adding that the team needs to hit the ball and minimize errors. Were ready and all of us are excited, Quesenberry said. Warriors head coach Gary Dreyer was pretty happy with his teams play despite the loss and, like Bishop, looked at the game as a pre-playoffs tune-up. He wants his team to focus on not making mental mistakes. If we play up to our capabilities, well have a good game against HCA, Dreyer said. CITRUSContinued from Page B1 for us, said Amber Russo, who had two hits for Lecanto. I think we came together as a team. It was nerve-wracking at the end but we came together and kept our mindset. Amber Atkinson led off the pivotal seventh inning for Lecanto with her second double of the game, a misplay allowing her to take third. Paige Richardss bloop single drove in a run and Russo followed with an infield single. Amber Hopkins reached base on a throwing error, allowing another run to score and putting the tying and lead runners on second and third with no one out. One out later, Danielle Yant flew out to center field, which allowed Russo to race home with the game-tying run, and Sidney Holstein capped the rally with a soft single to left field that plated Hopkins with the go-ahead run. Crystal River, which had led since the bottom of the second, did not go quietly. Laynee Nadal singled to start the Pirates seventh and went all the way to third on Emily Lagas sacrifice bunt. But when Nadal tried to score the tying run on Tiffany MacDonalds grounder to deep short, Russo threw her out at home. Still, it wasnt over. A dropped popup allowed McCale Wilson to reach base and put two runners on with two outs before a groundout ended it. We killed ourselves, Pirates coach Lanna Wentworth said. In the first couple of innings we did OK, we hit the ball, we scored some runs. But we didnt make the plays we normally do. Hopefully, theyll harness their feelings about this and work it out. Lecanto got the games first run on an insidethe-park home run by Richards in the first inning. Crystal River tied it on an RBI single by MacDonald in the bottom of the first, then took the lead with three runs in the second, a double by Danielle Gomez scoring one, a triple by Nadal scoring another and a single by Chloe Lane bringing in a third. Two Pirate errors helped the Panthers to close to within 4-3 in the third inning, but Crystal River added to its lead with single runs in the fourth, scored on an error, and in the sixth, on a Gomez double. Gomez had three hits and two RBIs for the Pirates, with Lane and Nadal contributing two hits apiece. Richards, Russo and Atkinson each had two hits for Lecanto. PINKContinued from Page B1 four innings. Sophomore Derrick Rogers needed 56 pitches against a hot-hitting Dunnellon club to get through the fifth and register two outs in the sixth before fellow sophomore Jordan Humphreys recorded the final Tiger out on the mound by forcing a groundout to short. Roberson paced his team at the plate as well, going 3 for 4 with two RBIs. Dunnellon senior first baseman Connor Wentz was 2 for 3 with two RBIs, a walk and a double to the left-center wall in the third and senior shortstop Jordon Boley went 2 for 4 with a pair of doubles. These guys really feel like theyre clicking at the right time, Dunnellon head coach Seth Gaspin said. Weve scored a run in the first inning in almost every game, but then wed go stagnant. Now were starting to figure out how to score in other innings. Theres no doubt this team can come out of nowhere and go to the playoffs. Thats our goal. Crystal River plays Tuesday at Leesburg. BASEBALLContinued from Page B1 I think we came together as a team. It was nervewracking at the end but we came together and kept our mindset. Amber Russo Lecanto shortstop on the teams victory Friday night.
SPORTS CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEB4SATURDAY, APRIL13, 2013 Five-run frame paces Warriors to 7-2 win DONALDWHITAKERII CorrespondentHOMOSASSA Better late than never. Seven Rivers Christian School (12-2) may need a coin flip with St. John Lutheran to decide the District 2A-3 winner, but first concentrated on the task at hand Friday night during a 7-2 blowout of Cornerstone Academy (9-7) at Dazzy Vance Field. Cornerstone struck first when Trey OShields bounced a single to first base, allowing starting pitcher Brian Lopez to score. The Cougars added a second run on a single down the right field line to make it 2-0. After that, Seven Rivers starting pitcher Cory Weiand shut Cornerstone down, although it took some time for the Warriors bats to make an impact. Seven Rivers changed the complexion of the game in the fourth inning; still down two runs, Weiand smashed a ball to center field, almost clearing the fence for a double. Adam Gage, the next batter, drove a 1-1 pitch over the left field fence for a two-run home run to tie the game at 2-2. Lance Mosher followed with a walk and scored on an error to give the Warriors a 3-2 lead. On the very next pitch following the Cougar error, Pillsbury stole home plate for Seven Rivers fourth run of the inning. Finally, Cory Phillips slow bounder down the first base line plated Griggs to stake Seven Rivers to a 5-2 lead. We just went up to the plate and put the ball in play, Seven Rivers coach Jim Ervin said. After allowing a leadoff double, Weiand struck out three straight batters to end the Cornerstone threat in the top of the sixth inning and the Warriors added two more insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth inning. A Pillsbury single scored Mosher from third base, then Pillsbury crossed home plate on a Griggs to give Seven Rivers a five-run lead. Weiand recorded 11 strikeouts over a complete-game effort, allowing four hits and one walk. The Warriors lefty said he got a boost from his teammates. What happened there was everyone came in and started talking to me and said, we got your back, just have confidence to throw strikes and it just helped me a lot, Weiand said. (That) was a real confidence booster for me. Seven Rivers plays 6 p.m. Monday at home against Wildwood. Miami milestone Heat tie home wins record against Boston Associated PressMIAMI LeBron James scored 20 points in 29 minutes, Rashard Lewis added 19 on a huge night for the Miami bench and the Heat tied the franchise record for home wins in a season, topping the Boston Celtics 109-101 on Friday night. Dwyane Wade, back after missing six games with bone bruises around his right kneecap, scored 11 in 34 minutes for Miami, which won its 35th home game to tie the standard set in 2004-05. The Heat erased an early 13-point deficit with a 41point second quarter, shooting 16 for 19 in the period. Miami also made 12 3-pointers to push its season total to 686, another team record. Jeff Green scored 25 for Boston, which played without Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. The Celtics bench was outscored 52-14.Knicks 101, Cavaliers 91CLEVELAND Carmelo Anthony scored 31 points with 14 rebounds in just three quarters and the New York Knicks bounced back after having their winning streak stopped at 13 games one night earlier by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 101-91. Anthonys streak of scoring at least 35 points ended at six games as New York coach Mike Woodson chose to rest the All-Star forward the entire fourth quarter. J.R. Smith also scored 31 13 in the fourth while Anthony watched for New York, which is trying to hold off Indiana for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Knicks have a three-game lead over the Pacers heading into their matchup Sunday at Madison Square Garden. Kyrie Irving scored 31 for the Cavs, who are 4-17 since March 1. Irving attempted a career-high 27 shots.76ers 97, Wizards 86WASHINGTON Jrue Holiday scored 22 points, and the Philadelphia 76ers found enough motivation to put the Washington Wizards pursuit of ninth place to rest for good, pulling away in the second half for a 97-86 victory. Thaddeus Young added 18 points and 13 points for the 76ers, who had played a pair of stinkers since being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs but handled the Wizards, who had made catching Philadelphia a very public goal to make up for a 4-28 start. John Wall scored 24 points for the Wizards, who have lost four straight and trail the 76ers by 3 1/2 games with two to play in the race if it can really be called that for top non-playoff team in the Eastern Conference.Raptors 97, Bulls 88TORONTO Amir Johnson had 24 points and nine rebounds, Rudy Gay scored 23 points and the Toronto Raptors earned their second straight win over Chicago, beating the Bulls 97-88.

Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson each had 24 points for the Nets (47-32), who have won four of their last five games. David West had 26 points and nine rebounds, and Paul George had 21 for the Pacers (49-30), who have lost three of four. The Nets are guaranteed the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference and pulled within two games of the Pacers for No. 3.Pistons 113, Bobcats 93AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Jonas Jerebko scored 17 of his 21 points in the first half, and the Detroit Pistons routed the Charlotte Bobcats 113-93 behind terrific outside shooting. Detroit went 12 of 18 from 3-point range, with Brandon Knight making all three of his attempts. Knight scored 19 points. Kemba Walker scored 24 in the first half for the Bobcats but finished with only 28. Will Bynum had 15 points and 10 assists for Detroit. Rookie Andre Drummond had 15 points and nine rebounds but appeared to hurt his right ankle late in the game. Detroit has won three in a row for only the second time all season. The Pistons had a four-game winning streak snapped by Charlotte in January.Hawks 109, Bucks 104ATLANTA Jeff Teague and Josh Smith each scored 24 points and the Atlanta Hawks used a 13-0 run in the fourth quarter to take the lead after trailing by 19 early in the second half and beat the Milwaukee Bucks 109-104. Atlanta moved one-half game ahead of Chicago for fifth place in the Eastern Conference. Monta Ellis led Milwaukee with 27 points and 17 assists, and Ersan Ilyasova scored 25 points while shooting 6 for 8 on 3-pointers. Ellis made a 3 with 17.8 seconds remaining to cut Atlantas lead to 105-102. Al Horford, who had 18 points and 17 rebounds, made two free throws to push the lead to five points. Devin Harris scored 19 points for Atlanta.Clippers 96, Hornets 93NEW ORLEANS Blake Griffin scored 20 points, Chris Paul made clutch plays on both ends of the floor in the final minute, and the Los Angeles Clippers overcame a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter for a 96-93 victory over the New Orleans Hornets. Matt Barnes scored 16 points, scoring three times during a critical stretch for the Clippers, who would have seen their hopes of remaining a top-four playoff seed in the Western Conference take a hit with a loss. Instead, the Clippers won their fourth straight in large part thanks to Paul, who had 14 assists and finished with 17 points including eight in the final minute on a pull-up jumper and six free throws. Eric Gordon scored 25 points for New Orleans, which has lost three straight.Grizzlies 82, Rockets 78HOUSTON Marc Gasol had 15 points and 12 rebounds, and the Memphis Grizzlies snapped a 13-game losing streak in Houston with an 82-78 victory over the Rockets.

Panthers blast Crescent City CARLMCDERMOTT CorrespondentLECANTO The Lecanto baseball team treated its visitors who traveled all the way from the east coast very rudely in Fridays game. The Panthers handed the Crescent City Raiders an overwhelming defeat as they won the game 14-4 in six innings. Raiders coach Tim Ross scheduled this nondistrict game to bring him back to where he used to live. We really dont know much about the Panthers, Ross said. I brought the team back to an area I grew up in. The Panthers scored in every inning with left fielder Jacob Schenck scoring the game-ending run on a wild pitch after he tripled to lead off the sixth inning. Designated hitter Ashton Honegger went 3 for 4 and scored two runs while center fielder Scott Stearns had a home run, a single and a walk while also scoring two runs. Crescent City got on the scoreboard in their first at bat. Leftfielder Bennie Hines doubled with one out, took third on a single by Jose Sanchez and scored on a error, but the Panthers escaped further scathed as the Raiders stranded two runners. Lecanto batted around in the bottom of the inning and scored five runs. The team had four singles and took advantage of three Raider errors to plate their runs. Freshman Alex Delgado had the big hit, plating two runs with a sharp single after falling behind in the count 0-2. Panthers coach Dave Logue was pleased to see a much better performance following a 12-0 loss to Nature Coast on Wednesday. Im hoping to see real improvement, Logue said, or it will be a recipe for disaster. The Raiders were able to score runs in both the second and third innings but could not keep the Panthers from answering in each inning. Lecanto scored two in the second on Stearns towering drive to left field. Schenck scored in the third after beating out an infield single, stealing a base and coming home on a Raider error. The Panthers shut out their opponents in the last three innings, only allowing a base runner in each inning with two hits. Starting pitcher Joey Spell was strong in the fourth and fifth innings and was backed up by good defense as the only hit was erased by a double play. Lefty Zach Bonick came on in the sixth and struck out two of the four batters he faced and ended the frame by inducing a ground ball to second baseman Nathan Hines. Logue was pleased with the way his team responded to the challenge. We did pretty well and Im pleased with the overall performance, Logue said, but theres always room for improvement. The Panthers play Monday at Pasco. NHL BRIEFS Senators 2, Devils 0NEWARK, N.J. Craig Anderson made 33 saves in his third shutout of the season, and the Ottawa Senators sent the sliding New Jersey Devils to their ninth straight loss with a 2-0 victory Friday. Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Milan Michalek second-period goals for the Senators, who won for the second straight night, following a five-game skid, to boost their playoff chances. Ottawa, in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, lead ninth-place Winnipeg by four points. New Jersey is 10th, eight points behind Ottawa and four behind the New York Rangers and the postseason cutoff with seven games to play. The Senators will finish a season-high, seven-game trip at Boston on Monday. They will then play five of their final six at home, where they are 13-3-3. New Jersey dropped to 05-4 without injured star forward Ilya Kovalchuk.Blue Jackets 4, Blues 1COLUMBUS, Ohio Cam Atkinson had a goal and an assist, and Sergei Bobrovsky made 31 saves as the Columbus Blue Jackets snapped the St. Louis Blues season-high, sixgame winning streak with a 4-1 victory. Artem Anisimov, Ryan Johansen and Marian Gaborik also had goals for Columbus, which continued its climb from cellar-dweller to playoff contention. The Blue Jackets, 11-1-3 in their last 15 home games, were last in the NHL after a 5-12-2 start but have earned points in 18 of 22 games since (13-4-5). Kevin Shattenkirk made it 1-0 for the Blues, who went with rookie Jake Allen in goal instead of Brian Elliott, who has posted three shutouts in a row.Stars 5, Predators 2NASHVILLE, Tenn. Rookie Alex Chiasson scored two goals, and the Dallas Stars beat the Nashville Predators 5-2 for their fourth straight win as they try to keep their improbable playoff hopes alive. Ray Whitney had a power-play goal and an assist, and Erik Cole and Tom Wandell had a goal apiece. Vern Fiddler also had two assists for the Stars, who started the night 10th in the Western Conference three points behind eighthplace Detroit. Richard Bachman stopped 26 shots and improved to 5-3. He started in place of Kari Lehtonen, who was scratched because of a lower body injury. Taylor Beck and Bobby Butler scored for Nashville, which has lost five straight and eight of nine. Dallas also snapped a four-game skid against Nashville and avoided being swept this season by their future division rival.

Pena, who reached on a bunt as a pinch hitter in the eighth, helped Atlanta finish off a rally in a game it trailed 4-0 after two innings and 4-2 entering the ninth. Eric OFlaherty (2-0) pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for the win, while Craig Kimbrel retired the heart of Washingtons order for his fifth save in five chances. With one out in the 10th, Stammen (2-1) walked Dan Uggla. After a flyout, Pena hit his first homer of the season.NATIONAL LEAGUE Cubs 4, Giants 3CHICAGO Starlin Castros ninthinning double off the center-field wall gave the Chicago Cubs a 4-3 win over the San Francisco Giants. Chicago led 2-0 heading into the top of the ninth, but closer Kyuji Fujikawa allowed a one-out RBI single by Pablo Sandoval and hit Buster Posey with a pitch before Brandon Belts two-out double down the right-field line. Pinch-hitter Dioner Navarro tied the game with a home run to lead off the ninth off Giants closer Sergio Romo. The home run was the Cubs first pinch-homer of the season. Matt Cain made his first start since giving up nine earned runs in 3 2/3 innings of work in a 14-3 loss to St. Louis on April 7.Phillies 3, Marlins 1, 10 inningsMIAMI Chase Utley hit a goahead triple in the 10th inning off Jon Rauch, and the Philadelphia Phillies beat Miami 3-1 and dropped the Marlins to 1-9. Miami is off to the poorest start by a big league team since Baltimore and Houston lost nine of their first 10 games in 2010, according to STATS. Revere singled with one out in the 10th and Utley tripled into the rightfield corner. Ryan Howard was intentionally walked, and Michael Young hit a hard grounder up the middle that shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria gloved with a dive. He flipped the ball to second baseman Donovan Solano, who missed stepping on the base as Utley scored on the infield hit. Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton was a late scratch with a sore left shoulder. Phillippe Aumont (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth, and Todd Papelbon finished for his second save with a scoreless 10th.Cardinals 2, Brewers 0ST. LOUIS Rookie Shelby Miller allowed one hit in seven innings, a single by Norichika Aoki to open the game, and the St. Louis Cardinals had just enough to spoil Kyle Lohses first start as a visitor since 2007 in a 2-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. David Freese had an RBI single at the end of a three-hit flurry to open the second and Yadier Molina hit his second homer in the seventh for the Cardinals, who have allowed one run during a three-game winning streak. Lohse, a 16-game winner whom the Cardinals did not attempt to re-sign, allowed two runs in seven innings.Pirates 6, Reds 5PITTSBURGH Andrew McCutchen hit a tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning and drove in three runs to lead the Pittsburgh Pirates past the Cincinnati Reds 6-5. McCutchens leadoff shot to left field off J.J. Hoover (0-3), his second homer of the season, snapped a 5-all tie. Cincinnati had just tied the score in the top of the seventh on Brandon Phillips second home run of the game, a two-run drive to center off Tony Watson (1-0). The first four batters in Pittsburghs lineup Starling Marte, Neil Walker, McCutchen and Garrett Jones had two hits each as the Pirates totaled 12. They entered the game with a .153 batting average, worst in the major leagues, and had scored only 21 runs in their first nine games.AMERICAN LEAGUE Opener of Rays-Red Sox series postponed by rainBOSTON The game between the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox on Friday night was postponed by rain. The opener of the four-game series was called off after rain began in the afternoon. The wet weather was expected to continue for most of the day, with temperatures in the 30s and 20 mph winds. The game was rescheduled as part of a day-night doubleheader June 18.Yankees 5, Orioles 2NEW YORK The Yankees turned a triple play in the eighth inning after Adam Jones dropped Vernon Wells fly ball while blowing a bubble for a game-changing, three-run error, and New York beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-2 for its fourth straight win. Baltimore started the eighth with two singles off CC Sabathia (2-1), and Manny Machado hit a sharp low liner that second baseman Robinson Cano. Cano tossed it to shortstop Jayson Nix for the forceout at second. Nick Markakis, thinking the ball was going to be caught by Cano, got trapped in a rundown between second and third base. Third baseman Kevin Youkilis tagged Markakis and then threw to first baseman Lyle Overbay when Machado ranged too far off the bag. Overbay then threw to Cano, who tagged Machado, setting off a smiling celebration by New York.Indians 1, White Sox 0CLEVELAND Nick Swishers two-out single in the ninth inning gave the Cleveland Indians a 1-0 win over the Chicago White Sox. Michael Bourn started the rally with a one-out double off Jesse Crain (0-1). Bourns blooper landed near the left field line and he beat the throw to second base. After Asdrubal Cabreras groundout moved Bourn to third, Crain fell behind Jason Kipnis in the count 3-0 before an intentional walk was issued. Swisher, one of the Indians key offseason additions, hit the first pitch into right field and was mobbed by his teammates as the Indians won for the first time in three home games.Blue Jays 8, Royals 4KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Blue Jays Jose Reyes drove in a pair of runs before getting carted off in the sixth inning with a sprained left ankle, and Toronto beat the Kansas City Royals 8-4. Reyes was attempting to steal second when he started his slide late. The four-time All-Stars left ankle twisted awkwardly beneath him as he slid over the bag, and trainers from both teams ran out to help as Reyes screamed in pain on the infield dirt. He was carted off the field and taken to a hospital for an MRI. The results were not immediately known and it was uncertain how long Reyes will be out. Torontos J.A. Happ (2-0) gave up three runs on 41 pitches in the first inning, but survived through five to pick up the win. Associated PressAtlanta Braves batter Ramiro Pena watches his two-run homer during the 10th inning Friday against the Washington Nationals in Washington. The Braves won 6-4 in 10 innings.

Quentin rushed the mound after he was hit in the upper left arm by a pitch from Zack Greinke. The two players lowered their shoulders and Quentin slammed into Greinke, breaking the pitchers left collarbone. Hairston incited a second melee when he ran across the field gesturing at someone in the Padres dugout. From wire reports
green and into the water. Instead of having a short birdie putt, he had to scramble to save bogey. Woods posed over another shot on the 18th and was stunned to see it hop onto the upper shelf, leading to his second threeputt bogey of the week. He had to settle for a 71, though he was still only three shots out of the lead. My score doesnt quite indicate how well I played today, Woods said. Day, a runner-up at the Masters two years ago, can be one of the most exciting players in golf when his game is on, and he was firing at flags from everywhere Friday. Even from the pine straw under the trees on the dangerous 11th, the Aussie took dead aim at the pin and set up a rare birdie to join the leaders. His only blunder was hitting into the water short of the 12th, though he still managed to escape with bogey, and then he fired a 4-wood low enough to stay below the trees and avoid the wind on the 13th, setting up a two-putt birdie. He was cognizant of the guys behind him Woods included though just as much pressure comes from trying to be the first Australian in a green jacket. The moment I start worrying about other players is the moment I start losing focus on what I need to do, and when I do that, Ill start making bogeys, Day said. Its obviously great to have the lead. Im very exciting for the challenge over the next two days. It really is exciting to have the opportunity to win the Masters. Im very, very happy where I am right now. The 53-year-old Couples, who shared the 36hole lead last year at the Masters, birdied the 18th hole for a 71 and will play in the final group. Former Masters champion Angel Cabrera birdied five of his last six holes for a 69 and was in the group two shots behind, along with former U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk (71) and Brandt Snedeker (70). Woods was at 3-under 141 with six others, including Adam Scott (72), Lee Westwood (71) and Justin Rose (71). And still in the mix was Rory McIlroy, who turned his fortunes around with a 5-wood from about 275 yards that set up a short eagle putt. He added three more birdies on the back nine and had a 70, leaving him only four shots out of the lead going into the weekend. Anything under par today was going to be a good score, McIlroy said. Dustin Johnson was running off birdies every way imaginable, the only player to reach 7-under par in nasty conditions. His round imploded, however, when he played the final five holes in 6-over par. That included a double bogey on the 15th when he hit his third shot into the water. He had a 76 and plunged down the leaderboard, though he was still only five shots behind. Furyk also hit into the water on the 15th with a wedge he chunked so badly that it didnt make it halfway across the pond. Scott made his third straight bogey at No. 5, but that was the last mistake he made. He answered with three birdies the rest of the way. One player who didnt recover was Sergio Garcia, who opened with a 66. One day after six birdies and no bogeys, he had four bogeys and no birdies. One day after he saw so many shots go where he was aiming, he couldnt cope with the wind. The weekend will include defending champion Bubba Watson, who will play with a marker in the first group Saturday morning, and Phil Mickelson, who shot 40 on the back nine and had a 76 that left him nine shots out of the lead. SPORTS CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEB6SATURDAY, APRIL13, 2013 Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State coaches and fans get a look at four inexperienced quarterbacks today when they audition in the schools annual spring game for the starting job vacated by the graduated EJ Manuel. Although rising junior Clint Trickett began spring drills as No. 1, coach Jimbo Fisher has declared an open competition will yield a starter before the Seminoles first game at Pittsburgh on Labor Day. The fourth-year Florida State coach has produced two NFL quarterback prospects this far into his brief head coaching career and believes hell be choosing his next quarterback from an equally talented field this spring. Christian Ponder was the Minnesota Vikings firstround pick two years ago and Manuel is among a handful of draft-eligible quarterbacks expected to go in the NFL s early rounds later this month. Seminole fans will get their first look at the aspiring quarterbacks in the form of todays Garnet and Gold scrimmage when the first team offense will face the first team defense and the second team offense will battle the second team defense. Its how you handle the atmosphere and environment, and how you execute, Fisher said. Sophomore Jacob Coker and freshmen Jameis Winston and Sean McGuire are slated for equal snaps with Trickett in todays simulated game. Injuries will keep out three regulars in the Seminole secondary along with possibly all three scholarship tailbacks James Wilder Jr., Devonta Freeman and Mario Pender and tight end Nick OLeary. It happens, said Fisher, noting the physical nature of football. However, the quarterback candidates are off limits to would-be tacklers. McGuire, the Jersey boy, jokes about being the forgotten man in the competition while Winston is the loosest of the foursome with an upbeat personality and ever-present smile. Hes wild now, hes funny, Coker said about Winston, who is splitting time with baseball this spring. Hes definitely the most outgoing quarterback weve got. Trickett is the smallest of the four at 62 and maybe 180 pounds but also the most experienced. The 6-5, 235-pound Coker is the biggest with arguably the strongest throwing arm. Try to do better than everybody else, said Coker, who has been slowed during the spring by a nagging foot injury. Play harder. The 6-2, 210-pound McGuire believes this will be his best opportunity to showcase his skills. This is my chance, he said. Im competing against the defense. Trickett, meanwhile, will try to stay in front of the competition with a steady performance. Im not going to be that guy who holds anything back, he said. I look at it like Im just competing against coach Fisher. If he wants me to be the guy, alright. The 6-4, 200-pound Winston will hightail it after todays scrimmage to the neighboring baseball diamond where he does a little bit of everything for coach Mike Martins baseball Seminoles from pitching to serving as the teams designated hitter. Im a kid, said Winston, whose twosport career evokes memories of former Florida State football greats Charlie Ward and Deion Sanders. Id rather be playing multiple sports than being involved in things I dont need to be involved in. Ward went from the Heisman Trophy to a long NBA career while Sanders is the only athlete to have played in a Super Bowl and World Series. Fisher, meanwhile, wants to improve on a 12-2 season and Atlantic Coast Conference champion and finding a quarterback is his top prioirity. But he claims that hes no hurry to make that decision. When the time is right, everyone will know, Fisher said. I have no timetable.Miami set to wrap up spring football slateCORAL GABLES A year ago, all Miami quarterback Stephen Morris could do in the Hurricanes spring game was evaluate his teammates from the sideline. This time around, hell evaluate again just from the field. A back injury kept Morris out of spring ball last season, so he watched while wearing a whistle instead of a helmet. And while many Hurricanes will try to impress coaches one last time before training camp starts in the summer, Morris will be keeping a critical eye on things as well, if for no other reason than to get a better feel for who will be his primary targets when the real season begins. It really helps me understand whos going to be my go-to guys, especially going into the summer, Morris said. I know guys like Allen Hurns and Phillip Dorsett, theyre going to make plays for me. I want to see Dallas Crawford play. I want to see Jontavious Carter come out. I want to see DMauri Jones do something special. Things like that are what you want to see. Then theyll have confidence going into the summer and we can take off from there. The Hurricanes are among more than 30 teams around the country scheduled to play their spring game today. Miami is coming off a 7-5 season that could have seen it play in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game, if not for a second straight year of self-imposed postseason bans because of the ongoing NCAA investigation into the Hurricanes athletic department. Expectations at this time in 2012 were low. This year, the Hurricanes are likely to be a popular pick to win the ACCs Coastal Division, if not the overall conference title. Theres changes on the field, too, with Miami coach Al Golden raving about how far his team has come this spring as opposed to last. Its not even close, Golden said. Golden said he chose the rosters for the spring game last week, without much rhyme or reason. First-stringers will be playing alongside second-stringers on both sides of the ball, although Miami will try to keep as much of a real-game feel as possible.

Couples, the Masters champion in 1992, is tied for second at 5-under par entering the weekend. Associated PressAUGUSTA, Ga. Fred Couples and Bernhard Langer briefly made round two of the Masters seem like Old Timers Day. The two former champions fell back on years of experience to navigate the tough, windy conditions Friday at Augusta National, climbing steadily up the leaderboard as many of their younger, stronger rivals lost their grip headed in the opposite direction. Couples, 53, who won his green jacket in 1992, followed up an opening 68 with an up-and-down round of 71 Friday to get to 5-under and one shot off the lead. Langer, 55, who won twice and whose first green jacket (1985) is older than more than a few of his opponents, notched his second consecutive 71 to reach 2-under and a tie for 14th. I mean, Im surprised, Couples said, but Im not going to freak out over it. Langer wasnt buying the surprised angle at all. Fred loves this place, he said. Hes played here 28 times and hes only missed one cut by one shot. This is his second home. So much so that Couples, who was in much the same position after two rounds just a year ago, renewed his threat to retire on the spot if he won at Augusta National again. You asked me that last year and I said, yeah, I would quit. Im going to quit when I win this thing, I swear to God, he said to laughter. Im going to retire. Its probably not ever going to happen, but Im going to retire. Im not going to kid you. I mean, its a hard course. Im really tired. Im swinging hard at every drive I hit. Yet Langer wasnt buying the idea that Couples couldnt win, either. He was less certain about his own chances. I always thought that Freddie, with his length, can win it, because he hits it a good 30 yards by me, which helps a great deal on some of these holes, Langer said. For me to win, everything has to go my way. I got to start making some putts most of all. Couples was sharp with the putter most of the day, if only because hed seen even the more diabolical pin positions at least once or twice before. But he felt like the biggest advantage of all those rounds at Augusta was remembering not to let the swirling winds confuse him or change the way he played his approaches into the greens. Any golf course plays hard when the wind blows, he said. At Augusta where youre trying to judge your second shots and putts, it becomes really, really hard. ... I knew it was blowing downwind on 3. And so three hours later, we are playing a hole that runs that way, its going to be playing downwind again, and you just have to keep believing that and doing that, because it swirls around in those trees. ... But when youre a guy trying to hit it, you cant stand there and say, I know its coming into my face, but Im not really sure. Thats not how you want to stand up on a lot of holes. Its just that Ive played so many rounds here that I feel pretty comfortable on some of these shots. Of course, all the talk about experience can also get, well, old. When Langer was asked the third time to recount something from his history at Augusta National, he promptly cut it short. I think this is my 30th, he said, chuckling. Im getting old.

Grace, amazing yet troubling One of my favorite authors is Jodi Picoult. She writes love stories mixed with some controversial issue stem cell research, faith healing, euthanasia, teen suicide usually with a lengthy courtroom drama at the end. Her books are impeccably researched. When she tackles an issue, she knows her stuff. In her latest book, The Storyteller, she writes about the Holocaust. Picoult begins with a friendship between a young woman and a 95-year-old man who meet at a grief support group. Josef has lost his wife and Sage has lost her mother. As the story unfolds and they become friends, Josef asks Sage to help him die. He chooses her because she is Jewish and he, a German, had been Liberal religion The most recent Jewish Community Study of New York held few surprises for those who have followed the sobering Jewish trends of recent decades. Yes, the 1.5 million or so Jews living in New York City and surrounding counties included a rising tide of people living in interfaith relationships, and some had even begun calling themselves partially Jewish. Participation in liberal Jewish congregations declined, again. Jews who said it was very important to affiliate with Jewish institutions fell to 44 percent. But one number was genuinely startling that 74 percent of the regions Jewish children were found in the onethird of the Jewish households that identified as Orthodox. No wonder leaders of the Reform movement and other liberal Jewish institutions have been asking sobering questions about theology, demographics and the future. The liberal approach to observance makes it impossible to set and maintain high expectations in terms of communal participation, See LIBERALS / Page C6 Nancy Kennedy GRACE NOTES Terry Mattingly ON RELIGION RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, APRIL 13, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE 794604 Sundays ClassifiedsAdvertising local job opportunities.APPLY NOW! Say it with ink DIANETURBYFILL The Gaston GazetteGASTONIA, N.C.Small portions of Randy Herrings skin peek through heavy ink that adorns his body. The local tattoo artist clearly embraces his craft with few places left un-inked on his 55year-old body. Herring most recently went under the needle late last month, getting the word Faith scrolled across the back of his head. Owner of Skin Art by Randy, Herring said neither his passion for art nor his devotion to his faith is a secret. Herring said hes not the only one getting religious connotations permanently inscribed in his skin. A member of the Christian Tattoo Association, Herring says he sees many clients choosing religious symbols or scriptures. Sam Johnston of Lake Wylie stopped in the Franklin Boulevard tattoo parlor on Friday for that very reason. Johnston sat still for his second tattoo, a cross on his arm. A Christian all his life, Johnston said a religious mainstay seemed logical. I love sharing my faith, and I felt like this was a way to break the ice, he said. Without saying anything, this is a way to share my faith. Some religious sects have lenience in regards to body art. The Muslim faith isnt one. We dont believe in tattoos. We dont believe in anything that changes your face or your body. Its forbidden in our religion to do it, said Hossam Sam Shoukry, president of the Islamic Society of Gastonia. People may use modern life and beliefs as a reason to justify body art, but religion doesnt change, according to Shoukry. Its doesnt matter what century it is. Religion is religion, said Shoukry. The basis of what God wants them to do is still written. The Rev. Ray Hardee, who heads up Forest Pointe Church in Belmont, said his congregation doesnt have any hard-and-fast rule regarding tattoos. But Hardee said hed never turn a parishioner away for sporting ink. Much of the opposition to tattoos in Christianity comes from the Old Testament. Herring argues that if someone cites the Old Testament, they could also refer to Leviticus which says not to cut or trim your beard. Hardee never opted to get a tattoo. JOHN CLARK GASTON /The Gaston GazetteTattoo artist Randy Herring, left, inks a cross onto Sam Johnstons arm at his shop, Skin Art by Randy in Gastonia, N.C. A memb er of the Christian Tattoo Association, Herring says he sees many clients choosing religious symbols or scriptures. More believers turn to tattoos to express faith with symbols, scripture Special to the ChronicleMusic that originates from the common people of a nation or region is called folk music. In America, that music includes genres such as bluegrass, country, gospel, Appalachian, blues, Cajun and Native American. It doesnt necessarily represent a certain style of music, but a certain culture, said Chad Robison, director of worship at Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church in Lecanto. On Sunday, April 28, the church presents an Americana Folk & Hymn Festival, a concert of American music with choir selections and music played by the Florida Philharmonic Symphony. Some of the music includes Down to the River to Pray, Deep River, Aaron Coplands Variations on a Shaker Tune, Coplands Hoe Down and a large portion of the New World Symphony by Antonin Dvorak. Robison, who came to Citrus County several years ago from a large church in Birmingham, Ala., said he has been pleasantly surprised at the communitys response every time the Lecanto church has presented a program. In Birmingham, people could go to the symphony any time, so when the church had a program, not many people came. But when I came to Citrus County I realized what a great place this is to host great art because its not readily available, he said. Whenever we use members of outside orchestras, they chomp at the bit to come here and play, because the audience is so engaged, and we sell out every time. Robison said with each concert, the church loses money, but making a profit isnt the reason they do it. As a church, if were going to be missional and do what we can to make Citrus County look beautiful, then this is one of the ways we can do that, he said. The concert begins at 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under and can be purchased at www.sevenrivers.org or by calling the church at 352-746-6200.

Envoy expresses alarm over attacks against Muslims in Sri LankaCOLOMBO, Sri Lanka The U.S. ambassador to Sri Lanka expressed alarm at rising hate speech and attacks against Muslims in the island nation and warned that such sentiments should not be allowed to fester. Hate speeches, vilification and even attacks on Muslim-owned businesses and places of worship by Sinhalese-Buddhist nationalist groups have occurred in recent months, and inaction by the government and police has spurred allegations that the government supports the campaign, which it denies. (The) United States, along with many Sri Lankan citizens, is alarmed by the recent attacks on Muslim businesses and certain inflammatory calls to action, Ambassador Michele J. Sison told foreign correspondents in Colombo on Monday. This type of hateful sentiment must not be allowed to fester, she said. Groups led by Buddhist monks have spread allegations that Muslims are dominating businesses and trying to take over the country demographically by increasing their birthrate and secretly sterilizing Sinhalese-Buddhists. Muslims make up 9 percent of Sri Lankas population, while SinhaleseBuddhists make up almost 75 percent of the countrys 20 million people.Appeals over for man mentally unfit to stand trial in killing of pastorST. LOUIS The case of a man accused of gunning down a southwestern Illinois pastor midsermon more than four years ago inched closer to a resolution when prosecutors said they will stop contesting a finding that he remains mentally unfit to stand trial. But Madison County States Attorney Tom Gibbons office still is working to schedule an examination by a psychiatrist of its choosing. A three-judge panel of the 5th District Appellate Court ruled last month that the examination be limited to assessing Sedlaceks sanity at the time of the March 2009 fatal shooting of the Rev. Fred Winters in Maryvilles First Baptist Church. The appeals court has said once the testing is completed, a circuit court judge will hold a hearing to decide whether Sedlacek is set free, ordered to stay in mental-health confinement or sent to prison. Sedlacek, 31, has been confined to mental health treatment in Alton, Ill., since he was found incompetent to stand trial months after prosecutors say he strolled into the Maryville church and confronted Winters, by all accounts a stranger. Sedlacek had suffered bouts of erratic behavior his family has attributed to tick-borne Lyme disease.Dean says churches need to adapt to societal changes with integrityNASHVILLE, Tenn. The outgoing dean of Vanderbilt Universitys Divinity School said how history views American religious life over the past decade may not be what we expect today. In a Tuesday community lecture, James Hudnut-Beumler, who is a professor of American religious history, said several years ago the big news was the rise of the evangelicals, as conservative religious leaders seemed to exercise increasing power and influence. But more recently, evangelical influence has been declining while religious observers now concern themselves with the rise of the so-called nones, or those who answer none when asked about their religious affiliation in polls. We know what evangelicals will do in the future, but we dont know what the nones will do, he said. Hudnut-Beumler said churches have adapted to cultural changes in the past and will continue to do so. The question is whether they can adapt with integrity. The search is what will last. Its been going on for 350 years and is present in all major religious brands in the U.S., he said.Building on success, GSN network developing church-based dating showNEW YORK The GSN television network is looking to build on the success of The American Bible Challenge with a church-based dating show.

an SS officer at Auschwitz, personally having killed countless Jewish prisoners. He wants forgiveness from her on behalf of those he killed. A huge portion of the book is told by Minka, Sages grandmother, an Auschwitz survivor. She tells her memories of life in Poland as the daughter of the town baker and of the incremental way the Nazis encroached on their town and stripped the people of their humanity. Minka tells of the fear and the waiting and of finally being rounded up and put on the train, of being torn from her father, of hearing about his death, her mothers death, her sisters death everyone in her family brutally murdered. Minka tells of the hunger and the desperation, the cold and the callousness of her captors. She also tells of the bits of hope, like meeting up with her best friend and being assigned to the same barracks where they cling to each other and tell stories of the future when theyll be free. In her research, Picoult used the true stories of survivors, capturing their vivid, detailed memories, which she incorporated in her book. Hers is a breathtaking description of human cruelty. At one point, Minka is reassigned to an office job where she works for a kind boss, kindness being a relative term. But she is able to be warm while she works, and her boss leaves his leftover lunch for her to steal. He also gives Minka a journal for her to write in. She is a storyteller, and at night she writes her story of a cannibalistic monster that terrorizes a village. She reads it to the women in the barracks every night and to her boss every day. What happens next? the women and Minkas boss ask. Minkas story is the one hope that keeps everyone going one more day. Eventually the Allies come and liberate the prisoners in the death camps, including Auschwitz, and Minka finds her way to the U.S. where she never speaks about her Holocaust experiences. I wont spoil what happens to Minka or Josef, in case you want to read the book. But I will tell you that theres an attempt at atonement, a plea for forgiveness and an unanswered question is it too late? Thats our question, too. Is it ever too late for God to forgive? Is a deathbed confession ever too little, too late? But the real question is whether Gods grace is limited. Are heinous, yet repentant, criminals excluded? Two thieves were crucified on either side of Jesus. One died hurling insults and mocking Jesus, but the other one repented. Jesus told him, Today, you will be with me in paradise. A deathbed confession not too little, not too late. But what about a German SS officer who cold-heartedly killed people he thought of as vermin and not human? What about Jeffrey Dahmer? Ive heard from several sources that he came to faith in Christ while he was in prison for his serial killing and cannibalism. Surely Gods grace cant cover him! Not after all he has done. Can it? Does it? If the answer is no, then its not grace. If grace isnt for everyone and anyone who asks, then its not for you or for me either. True grace is disturbing. But thats what makes it so amazing.

Gazas Islamic militant Hamas rulers argue that the new legislation, mandating gender separation in schools from age nine, enshrines common practice. But womens activists warned its another step in the Hamas agenda of imposing its fundamentalist world view on Gazas 1.7 million people. The Gaza rules appear harsh compared to Western practice but are not unusual in parts of the Arab and Muslim world. In Iraq, for example, boys and girls are required by law to study separately after age 12. Hamas has been running Gaza since its violent takeover of the crowded coastal territory in 2007. While the group advocates the establishment of an Islamic state in all of the Mideast, including Israel, it has moved cautiously in spreading its ultra-conservative version of Islam. It has issued a series of rules restricting women or requiring them to cover up in the traditional Islamic dress of long robes and headscarves. Other edicts include bans on women smoking water pipes in public, riding on the backs of motorcycles or getting their hair done by male stylists. Last month, it barred girls and women from participating in a U.N.-sponsored marathon, prompting a U.N. aid agency to cancel the race. Hamas activists, including teachers, have also exerted social pressure to get all school girls to wear Islamic dress. When faced with public resistance, Hamas tends to refrain from enforcing the rules. It scrapped a 2009 decree requiring female lawyers to wear headscarves in court after women protested. In the last six years, Hamas has been going forward and sometimes a step backward because of protests but there is a strategy to implement the Islamic law in society, said Mkhaimar Abu Sada, a Gaza political analyst and university lecturer. In conservative Palestinian society, the idea of gender segregation in schools from the onset of puberty is widely accepted. Even in the West Bank, run by a more liberal Westernbacked self-rule government, most public schools separate boys and girls by fourth grade. But in the West Bank, separation is not mandated by law. Instead, its up to local authorities to decide according to residents sensibilities. The new Gaza law, approved Monday, deprives teachers and parents of that choice, and in principle imposes segregation on four private schools that have boys and girls studying together into middle or high school. They including three Christian-run schools and the American International School, with a total enrollment of 3,500. Officials at the schools had no comment on the new law. A prominent womens rights group on Tuesday denounced the legislation. The bill is based on a culture of discrimination against women, by reinforcing gender separation which takes our society back to ancient times when there was no respect for womens rights and women were eliminated from public life, said the Center for Womens Legal Research and Consulting, Gazas only legal aid group for women. We warn against issuing law that change Palestinian society, the group said. A Gaza education official said the law is in keeping with local mores. We are a Muslim society and we all respect our religion, said Walid Mezher, the Education Ministrys legal adviser. The aim is not to enforce Islam, as some people are saying ... Its simply to honor the traditions and the culture of the society. Mezher noted that the education law deals with a host of issues, including improving the standing of teachers. The law has 60 articles, and the media focused on one footnote? he said. Gaza has 690 schools with 466,000 students. Of those, 397 schools are public, 243 are run by a U.N. aid agency for refugees and 46 are private. The U.N. system has separate schools for boys and girls. In addition to legislation, there has been mounting social pressure on Gaza girls and women to wear headscarves and robes. Earlier this year, a branch of Al-Aqsa University in the southern town of Khan Younis made it a requirement for all female students to wear robes in addition to headscarves.

argued Rabbi Dana Evan Kaplan, in a muchdebated broadside in The Forward. Without an omnipotent God who can compel believers to practice a prescribed pattern of behavior, religious consumerism becomes the movements dominant ethos. ... In the absence of a strong theological basis for making religious demands, the members lose interest and wander off. There is, however, an ironic cultural reality hiding in all the negative trends that have been nagging liberal Judeo-Christian institutions, noted historian John Turner, who teaches religious studies at George Mason University. This ironic wrinkle is easiest to see in the influential denominations scholars call the seven sisters of Protestantism. These churches, in descending order by size, are the United Methodist Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Episcopal Church, the American Baptist Churches USA, the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Recent research from the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found that, for the first time, America lacks a Protestant majority, with only 48 percent of the population claiming ties to Protestant denominations. This trend has affected a variety of churches, but the liberal mainline has been hit especially hard. Episcopal membership, for example, has fallen from 3.4 million in 1967 to 1.9 million in 2011. The United Church of Christ, President Barack Obamas denomination, has declined from more than 2 million members in 1962 to just over 1 million in 2011. However, liberal religious groups may have ultimately lost the battle for membership, but they won the larger cultural struggle, noted Turner in an online First Things essay. Through their embrace of religious pluralism and more universal mystical religious experiences, liberal Protestants imperiled their own institutional strength but persuaded many Americans of the value of their ideas. For example, liberal Protestants have backed by progressive elements in Catholicism and Judaism been victorious in their push to define religions value in public life primarily in terms of social and economic justice, in contrast with more conservative groups that would stress both good works and evangelism. Then there is religious liberalisms much higher tolerance of pluralism, even on eternal issues tied to salvation, said Turner in a telephone interview. Belief in universalism that all world religions lead to the same eternal ends remains very divisive among evangelicals, but you would have to say that this belief has become the norm in Middle America. Liberal religious leaders, he added, have been intensely committed to the cultural prestige of science in debates about lifes big questions. They won that battle, too. Religious liberals have also been much quicker to adapt to the looser moral standards of the Sexual Revolution, especially when changing ancient doctrines linked to hotbutton topics such as sex outside of marriage, abortion and homosexuality. Actually, its hard to know, said Turner, if mainline Protestants and other religious liberals simply jumped on the bandwagon of the Sexual Revolution or if, in the end, they got run over by it. The bottom line, he said, is that the religious left has the cultural momentum right now, even as its own institutions are wrestling with painful issues with demographics, membership totals and budgets. Its hard to know what the future holds, said Turner. I mean, Thomas Jefferson was absolutely sure that Unitarianism was the future of religion in America. That isnt how things turned out, at least not in terms of whats happened in America in the past. Terry Mattingly is the director of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities and leads the GetReligion.org project to study religion and the news. Two of his three children, however, took the plunge. Neither of his children asked for permission, but Hardee said he wouldnt necessarily have put his foot down. I might tell them to think twice because they may not want them later in life, said Hardee. Id say to them that this is going to mortify your mother. Hardee was excited the day his son, Alex, called and asked him to recite John 15:13. He thought Alex was really showing an interest in Scripture and faith. A full-time firefighter, Alex was actually at a tattoo parlor preparing to have the words tattooed across his back. The script, Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends, marked Alexs devotion to his profession and fellow firefighters, Hardee said. Jeff Mauney, owner of Ink Link on Franklin Boulevard, said hes also seen an increase in religious tattoos at the shop. He says the shop probably puts a cross on a customers body at least once a day. People come in and dont know what they want, and theyll settle on crosses, said Mauney. In the business for 30 years, the uptick started about five years ago, he said. People also choose to memorialize loved ones through illustrations, quotes and scripture, said Mauney. The negative stigma attached to tattoos seems to be waning, according to Mauney. He had one theory on why people may choose a religious piece of body art. I think some people may go that way to make it OK in grandmothers eyes, he said. Faith wasnt Herrings first religious tattoo. Though he doesnt know how many illustrations decorate his body, Herring said hes got multiple crosses in the mix. He takes pride in being a Christian and sharing his faith. Hardee doesnt intend to climb into the tattoo chair anytime soon, but hes talked to parishioners about the decision to do so. The Belmont pastor remembers one man with large arm tattoos. Eventually, he asked what one of them meant. The man answered, Mistake, referring to a girls name engrained in his skin. As a father and a pastor, Hardee offers a word of advice. If you feel like youve got to do it, make it about something bigger than just having a cool tattoo, he said. If they use it for purposes of promoting faith and eternal value, thats the best reason to get one.

The Pickin Party will be staged every Sunday and the event is free and open to the public. When I was younger and growing up, my dad was in the military. I joke with people when they ask me if I served in the military. I tell them that I did 17 years involuntarily. My dad, who has since passed away, was a 23-year military man who retired twice. I think there is a fine line between discipline and stubbornness and it takes wisdom to tell the difference. But, if I have any of the good discipline that helps make my life more productive, much of the credit goes to my dads military training. A term that would come up often back then and I dont hear it that much anymore is the term service. When my dad said what he did for a living to a civilian and after he retired, he used a phrase, I was in the service. Everyone seemed to automatically understand that when someone said they were in the service, it was the military service of the United States. Many of the past two generations do not understand the draft system and how it worked. The men in my dads day had to decide on college, the Army or another branch of military when they turned 18. (It was a little more complicated, but Im being brief.) I think this is where much of the meaning of the word came in. You had to perform your service to the country and it was not a choice. What is service? When I was a limousine driver, I performed a service to customers who paid me to do what they did not want to do or could not do for themselves. When I serve myself, I am interested in building wealth for myself. When I became a Christian, I heard it was better to give than receive and Jesus said that He came to serve. In the Christian world, I may still build wealth, but it has to be Gods will for it and my priority is to serve Him and others. I believe I am working on the greatest mission in the world. I am following what I believe is the Christian mandate: To work day in and day out performing my service for people at The Path Rescue Mission. The energy I would normally spend on myself gets spent on people whose lives might get a little better by learning our disciplines.

ENTERTAINMENTCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEC8SATURDAY, APRIL, 13, 2013 PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Gary Ryan Blair, a motivational speaker and author, said, Opportunities are easily lost while waiting for perfect conditions. At the bridge table, you will not always have the perfect hand for a given call. You must play the percentages. If a call will probably win, go with it. But remember that nothing works all of the time. This applies when you are balancing with a weak hand. You know partner must have some points; otherwise, the opponents would have bid higher. In this situation, first wonder what the opponents might have missed. In particular, if you are short in an unbid major, be particularly cautious. Sometimes a pass will be less expensive than a bid. In this deal, look at the North hand. Easts one-spade opening is passed around to you. What would you do? It is quite likely that South has a strong hand with spade length that is not suitable for a oneno-trump overcall. (Perhaps it is not strong enough, or is too unbalanced.) So, you could double. But your defense is not good your hand has better offensive potential. And since it is unlikely that the opponents have missed a makable four-heart contract, you should balance with two diamonds. Here, partner will gnash his teeth and jump to three no-trump. West leads his spade. What should South do? He has eight top tricks: two spades (given the lead), two hearts, three diamonds and one club. He can get home if either red suit breaks 3-3. After winning the first trick, he should play three rounds of hearts. Here, that works nicely.

Hell be more likely to listen to you.) Dead at Seventeen by John Berrio Agony claws my mind. I am a statistic. When I first got here I felt very much alone. I was overwhelmed by grief, and I expected to find sympathy. I found no sympathy. I saw only thousands of others whose bodies were as badly mangled as mine. I was given a number and placed in a category. The category was called Traffic Fatalities. The day I died was an ordinary school day. How I wish I had taken the bus! But I was too cool for the bus. I remember how I wheedled the car out of Mom. Special favor, I pleaded. All the kids drive. When the 2:50 p.m. bell rang, I threw my books in the locker ... free until tomorrow morning! I ran to the parking lot, excited at the thought of driving a car and being my own boss. It doesnt matter how the accident happened. I was goofing off going too fast, taking crazy chances. But I was enjoying my freedom and having fun. The last thing I remember was passing an old lady who seemed to be going awfully slow. I heard a crash and felt a terrific jolt. Glass and steel flew everywhere. My whole body seemed to be turning inside out. I heard myself scream. Suddenly, I awakened. It was very quiet. A police officer was standing over me. I saw a doctor. My body was mangled. I was saturated with blood. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Strange that I couldnt feel anything. Hey, dont pull that sheet over my head. I cant be dead. Im only 17. Ive got a date tonight. Im supposed to have a wonderful life ahead of me. I havent lived yet. I cant be dead. Later I was placed in a drawer. My folks came to identify me. Why did they have to see me like this? Why did I have to look at Moms eyes when she faced the most terrible ordeal of her life? Dad suddenly looked very old. He told the man in charge, Yes, hes our son. The funeral was weird. I saw all my relatives and friends walk toward the casket. They looked at me with the saddest eyes Ive ever seen. Some of my buddies were crying. A few of the girls touched my hand and sobbed as they walked by. Please, somebody wake me up! Get me out of here. I cant bear to see Mom and Dad in such pain. My grandparents are so weak from grief they can barely walk. My brother and sister are like zombies. They move like robots. In a daze. Everybody. No one can believe this. I cant believe it, either. Please, dont bury me! Im not dead! I have a lot of living to do! I want to laugh and run again. I want to sing and dance. Please dont put me in the ground! I promise if you give me just one more chance, God, Ill be the most careful driver in the whole world. All I want is one more chance.
