Davis, who hoped to bring unity to the Citrus Memorial hospital dispute following his September appointment, resigned Monday before the state Senate had a chance to vote down his confirmation. Davis declined an invitation to appear Monday before the Florida Senate Committee on Ethics and Elections for a confirmation hearing. Instead, Davis submitted a resignation letter to CCHB chairwoman Debbie Ressler. The resignation is effective immediately. Davis said he thought the confirmation hearing would be a waste of time. He said contacts in Tallahassee, who he would not name, said some senators opposed his confirmation. Davis said he and Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, have not spoken about the appointment. He said political opposition is the result of his being the only board vote against appealing a governance lawsuit to the Florida Supreme Court. Unfortunately, I now find myself considering how each vote I will make will be evaluated by our state politicians with little regard to my opinion of what is best for our hospital, its employees, and especially, the citizens of Politics doom CCHB trustee PATFAHERTY Staff writerA bill being considered today by a state House committee could mandate insurance coverage for orally-administered cancer medications. It could enable patients like Beverly Hills resident Winston Hamilton to get their cancer treatment in a pill form rather than intravenously and their insurance would pay for it Hamilton, a retired electrical worker who suffers from prostate cancer, was taking a pill for treatment. The expense of this is so high, he said. Its $7,800 for a months supply. And with a benefit cap of $20,000 he would have to pay for it himself along with all his other medications. After two months on the drug he could no longer afford it and could not find any assistance, so he had to cancel it. It really worked, said his wife, Charlotte, so that was really good. We could pay for some of it, but not $7,800 a month. Thats more than were taking in. Hamilton is not on any cancer medication now and will be starting three weeks of IV chemotherapy this summer. It will be covered by Medicaid. The Cancer Treatment Fairness Act, which passed the Senate, would save patients from having to pay Legislation could change cancer coverage Winston Hamilton See CANCER / Page A5 See CCHB / Page A5 Gene Davis Associated PressMedical workers aid injured people Monday at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon after an explosion. Associated PressBOSTON Two bombs exploded in the packed streets near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing three people and injuring more than 140 in a bloody scene of shattered glass and severed limbs that raised alarms that terrorists might have struck again in the U.S. A White House official speaking on condition of anonymity, because the investigation was still unfolding, said the attack was being treated as an act of terrorism. President Barack Obama vowed that those responsible will feel the full weight of justice. A senior U.S. intelligence official said two other bombs were found near the end of the 26.2-mile course in what appeared to be a well-coordinated attack. Authorities shed no light on a motive or who may have carried out the bombings, and police said they had no suspects in custody. Authorities in Washington said there was no immediate claim of responsibility. They just started bringing people in with no limbs, said runner Tim Davey of Richmond, Va. He said he and his wife, Lisa, tried to keep their childrens eyes shielded from the gruesome scene inside a medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners, but they saw a lot. They just kept filling up with more and more casualties, Lisa Davey said. Most everybody was conscious. They were very dazed. The fiery twin blasts took place almost simultaenously and about 100 yards apart, knocking spectators and at least one runner off their feet, shattering windows and sending dense plumes of smoke rising over the street and through the fluttering national flags lining the course. When the second bomb went off, the spectators cheers turned to screams. As sirens blared, emergency workers and See BOMBING / Page A9 They just started bringing people in with no limbs.

This Saturday, Inverness city residents and friends of Inverness are invited to join in a citywide cleanup day. Teams and individuals will meet city staff and officials at 8 a.m. at the Inverness Government Center, 212 W. Main St., for coffee and a snack and to get trash bags and street assignments. Then its off to make Inverness more beautiful. This is something weve done every year for quite a few years in conjunction with Earth Day, said Susan Jackson, Inverness assistant city clerk. Jackson said people can call ahead and reserve a specific street or area within the city or people can just show up. Well be doing the whole city limits, not just the downtown area, she said. Trash bags will be provided. When bags get full or too heavy to carry around, people can simply set the bags near the street and staff from the city Public Works Department will pick them up. Also, representatives of Keep Citrus County Beautiful and Waste Management will be on hand to provide information on recycling and how it affects our community. Look for Inverness city residents and businesses to begin curbside recycling in May.

The challenge: finding them and chasing them down. Taking on the objectives April 6 were almost three dozen students from the University of Florida and Eckerd College, based in Clearwater. This isnt the first time students from both Florida-based colleges have taken to the waters of the pristine Rainbow River, having made this an annual trek for more than a decade as part of a hands-on opportunity outside the typical classroom environment. Its a great learning experience, said Jessica Mullens, a junior biology major from Eckerd College, who made the trek for the second time. I dont focus on a lot of the research, but this is a great time. This is a unique opportunity, a unique learning experience. Of course, catching a few turtles never hurts, either. Its amazing how many we can collect in one day, she said. Its all a part a long-term turtle data collection project in the Rainbow River. Once the students, whose majors range from biology to wildlife ecology and conservation, are done capturing turtles professors assist them in noting the species caught, weighing them and, of course, implanting a microchip of sorts to be able to track them in later years. On this particular day, students caught a turtle tagged 12 years ago. It also happened to be the 12th straight year in which the same turtle was caught, giving officials the rare opportunity to see its progress since it was first caught and released back into the wild. This is excellent, said Dr. Peter Meylan, a professor of Natural Sciences at Eckerd College. For this large of group, Id say we caught about 100 or more turtles today. Not only did we catch a lot of turtles we can examine, we caught a lot of different species we can teach the students about. Throughout the 15-plus year study of turtles on the Rainbow River, Dr. Meylans students have captured 10 different species. Dr. Steve Johnson from the University of Florida has participated in the study for the past eight years, bringing his students along with him. Its a great way for my students to learn about the turtles, he said. This is a great opportunity to get them out of the classroom and into the environment which weve been studying about.Jeff Bryan is editor of The Riverland News, a Dunnellonbased sister newspaper of the Citrus County Chronicle. Students chase turtles for study JEFF BRYAN /Riverland NewsKelly Jones, a sophomore at the University of Florida, shows off a Suwannee cooter turtle she captured. Initiative marks 12th year, aims to track population in Rainbow River Nearly three dozen students hailing from University of Florida and Eckerd College participated recently in the annual turtle data collection project in the Rainbow River. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A Florida House committee shot down a plan Monday that would have accepted tens of billions of federal dollars and expanded health coverage to roughly 1.1 million residents under the federal health law and instead supported a lessambitious proposal that would rely on state funds and cover 115,000 residents. Republican Rep. Mike Fasano felt so strongly about the House plan, which relies on $237 million in state funds, that he aligned with Democrats to craft an amendment that would provide coverage to an estimated 1.1 million residents using about 55 billion in federal dollars over the next decade. Fasanos amendment mirrors a bill proposed by Sen. Joe Negron that is gaining traction in the Senate. Fasano called the current House plan inadequate, unaffordable and truly unacceptable and said lawmakers have an opportunity to help so many more in this state who have been suffering for so long. He also pointed out that his proposal would allow residents to start enrolling this fall, while the current House plan wouldnt begin enrollment until July 2014. U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown took a break from Washington to attend the hearing and urged lawmakers not to burden Floridians with a double tax. Its not a political issue, its a taxpayer issue and whether or not were going to get our fair share of federal tax dollars, Brown said. Her comments echoed a statement from Gov. Rick Scott, who slammed the House plan spearheaded by Rep. Richard Corcoran, saying it would be an extra burden on Florida taxpayers. This expansion saves lives, more so than the money that was lost when we didnt take the high speed rail money were talking about lives of Floridians, said House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston. What point is there in refusing federal money when we take it all the time ... there is some ideological problem here that is just feet are stuck in the ground on that one, said Rep. Elaine Schwartz, a Hollywood Democrat. But House Republicans have been unwavering in their resolve to refuse federal funds tied to the Affordable Care Act, falling in line behind House Speaker Will Weatherford, who has repeatedly voiced concerns that the feds will back out of their promise to pay 100 percent of the program for the first three years and 90 percent after that. Panel opts for less-sweeping health plan Rep. Mike Fasano rejected plan, calling it inadequate.
Birthday The year ahead could bring about growth in your material hopes and expectations. Aries (March 21-April 19) To achieve some of your bigger objectives, you might have to do things in a circuitous way. Taurus (April 20-May 20) Argumentative individuals will frustrate you, but the solution is obvious. Dont involve yourself with companions who overreact to a difference of opinions. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Take nothing for granted in both your commercial and personal dealings. If you play things too loose, you might think you have an agreement, when all youve got is a maybe. Cancer (June 21-July 22) To get along well with someone who is pertinent to your plans, it might be necessary for you to make some concessions. Failing to do so could bring things to a halt. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) When sharing a job with others, be sure that no one person has more work to do than the others. Each must do his or her share. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Be prepared to operate on your own if it becomes necessary. A friend upon whom you can usually depend might let you down. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Be a good sport and pick up all the pieces after someones temper tantrum. This person needs to be consoled, not chastised. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Its rarely a good idea to get angry with someone just because he or she disagrees with you. Its important to keep an open mind and a forgiving heart. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Guard against inclinations to suddenly change course, especially when your goal is within reach. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If you are not successful, it isnt due to a lack of good ideas. Although your imagination is excellent, your implementation might not be. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Be careful that you do not trip over your own shoelaces. The only obstacles in your path are the ones you put there yourself. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) If its up to you to make plans for a get-together with friends, give thought to who is involved. Dont invite anyone who hasnt been getting along with everyone else.

It would apply to insurance plans that already cover cancer treatment. It would not affect Medicare, though Medicare does cover some oral cancer treatments. Jessica Eilerman with the Florida Department of Financial Services said, Right now the insurance companies are making the decisions about chemo therapy. This bill addresses that item, so individuals and their doctors can make that decision. Currently, for Medicare as well as private insurance companies, most will cover chemo if it is given in IV form, explained Dr. C. Joseph Bennett, a radiation oncologist and member of the Citrus County Unit of the American Cancer Society. However, many chemo drugs are now available in pill form, and many of the companies will not pay for this because they consider it a prescription and even if they have a prescription plan for coverage, it will cover medications for blood pressure and diabetes, but will not pay for these very expensive drugs, often $5,000 per month or more. Bennett said hes had a few patients recently who have not been able to get these expensive medications due to the cost, lack of insurance coverage, and lack of the drug company being willing to give them the medications for free if they cannot afford it. According to the Florida Department of Financial Services, under current insurance benefits, patients who receive oral medications to combat cancer may face between hundreds and thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses each month while undergoing treatment. However, cancer patients who receive their treatment by IV are typically responsible for covering the cost of only an office visit co-payment usually $20 to $30 when they receive their IV-administered medication in a medical facility. This disparity exists because coverage for an IV cancer medication is usually provided under a plans medical benefit, but orally administered cancer medications are typically covered by a plans pharmacy benefit. If you dont have excellent prescription coverage, its not covered, Dr. Sunil Gandhi said, citing the high cost of some of the new oral cancer medications. But Gandhi, a hematologist and oncologist, pointed out that Medicare will cover some cancer drugs such as Xeloda for colorectal cancer and metastatic breast cancer, which does not have an IV equivalent. We want to use these good drugs, he said. It would be nice if the insurance companies covered them. He agreed it is a complex situation, with some of the new, more effective drugs not having IV equivalents.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com. Citrus County, his letter states. Dean, reached Monday evening, said Davis would not have been confirmed. He cited several reasons, particularly his vote to settle the governance lawsuit. Dean said Davis vote showed him more aligned with the hospital foundation than the hospital board. Gov. Rick Scott in September appointed Davis, Michael Bays and Krista Joseph to the board. Four months earlier, he appointed Bob Priselac. All four appointments were subject to Senate confirmation. While all four received notices of the confirmation hearing, only Davis was asked to appear, CCHB attorney Bill Grant said. The CCHB and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation have been embroiled in a dispute over control and finances since 2009. In 2011, the foundation sued to overturn a state law that gave CCHB trustees oversight of the hospital; thats the case now pending with the state Supreme Court. Many thought the boards were headed for reconciliation when Scott removed three trustees and appointed the four, including a new trustee to fill a seat that had been vacant for a year. The two sides are moving toward common ground but havent reached it yet. Davis had urged trustees to drop the governance lawsuit after the district court of appeal ruled in the foundations lawsuit, but he was outvoted 4-1. Davis said on Monday he only wanted to end the dispute and provide muchneeded funding for Citrus Memorial Health System. He said trustees have spent $3.5 million on governance and legal costs over the last three years. We have gained nothing out of it, he said. That $3.5 million could have been spent for the hospital. CCHBContinued from Page A1 The CCHB and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation have been embroiled in a dispute ... since 2009. CANCERContinued from Page A1 Senate panel OKs bill promoting more nursing homes Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A Florida Senate panel on Monday advanced a bill aimed at relaxing state rules to allow more nursing homes to be built in large retirement havens. Backed by The Villages, a sprawling retirement community with more than 100,000 residents northwest of Orlando, the legislation aims to carve out exemptions to a longstanding limit on new nursing homes in a state known as a magnet for the elderly. The bill (SB 1482) was advanced by the Senate Judiciary Committee on a 6-3 vote, clearing a key hurdle as supporters try to push it toward the full Senate in the final weeks of Floridas 60-day legislative session. Similar legislation is being considered in the state House. The measure voted on Monday would create limited exemptions to a moratorium more than 10 years old on state approval of new nursing home beds. The bill would create exceptions for areas including The Villages and in a handful of other large retirement communities in the Sunshine State. Republican Sen. Alan Hays, the bills sponsor, said the lack of enough nursing home beds close to The Villages causes hardships. He recounted the situation of one elderly resident who had to make a 40-mile roundtrip to visit her husband in a nursing home during the final seven months of his life. He said the shortage of nursing home space has become acute in The Villages, which ranks as one of the countrys fast-growing communities. That justifies the proposal, he said, to allow the bypassing of a state review known as the certificate of need process to build nursing homes for the community. The bills opponents countered that the bill would create a patchwork system that appears to play favorites. When we take this approach to CON, and violate the rules that all of us have stood by and followed, it begs the question, Are there others that are above the law? said Steve Bogomilsky, who runs a company that operates nursing homes in Florida. Bogomilsky, whose company recently developed a 120-bed nursing home close to The Villages, disputed the claims that the retirement community has a shortage of nursing home beds. He said theres only an 80 percent occupancy rate for the more than 1,000 beds in the area. Other opponents said that any changes to the certificate of need process should be comprehensive and not be done in piecemeal fashion. In presenting the bill to the committee, Hays said, My personal opinion, the whole certificate of need process is anti-American, it is anti-free enterprise, its anti-competitive. I think we ought to do away with all of it. But thats not the purpose of this bill. The intent is to provide sufficient nursing home beds in fast-growing retirement communities like The Villages, he said. Specifically, his bill would create exemptions from the state review process for deed-restricted retirement communities in counties in which at least 25 percent of their populations are 65 or older and there is a demonstrated shortage of nursing home beds. Supporters said five Florida counties would currently qualify Sumter, Indian River, Collier, Marion and Hernando. The moratorium was approved by state lawmakers in 2001. Legislation aims to carve out exemptions Sen. Alan Hays sponsored bill.

Deaths ELSEWHERE Colin Davis, 85CONDUCTOR LONDON Colin Davis, the former principal conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra and one of Britains elder statesmen of classical music, has died at 85. The orchestra said Davis died Sunday after a short illness. One of the best-known figures in British music, Davis worked with the London symphony for more than half a century. He first conducted for the LSO in 1959 and took the principal conductor post in 1995, serving until 2006 before becoming president. The orchestra said Davis had been at the head of the LSO family for many years. His musicianship and his humanity have been cherished by musicians and audiences alike, it said in a statement, adding that music lovers across the world have been inspired by his performances and recordings. Associated in particular with the works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Jean Sibelius and Hector Berlioz, Davis won three Grammy awards two in 2002 for the LSOs recording of Les Troyens by Berlioz, and one for Giuseppe Verdis Falstaff four years later and a host of other trophies. Colin Rex Davis was born in the southern England town of Weybridge on Sept. 25, 1927, one of seven children of a bank clerk. Thanks to a generous relative, he studied at the private school Christs Hospital, then at the Royal College of Music, before spending his compulsory military service as a clarinetist with the band of the Household Cavalry. Because he did not play piano, he was denied a place in the music colleges conducting class, and initially he struggled to find conducting work. His entry in Whos Who listed the years 1949-57 as freelance wilderness. Apart from his long association with the LSO, Davis spent periods as chief conductor of the BBC Symphony and music director of the Royal Opera House, and worked with ensembles around the world, including the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1980. In his early career Davis was, by his own admission, a raw young man, known for abrasiveness and fits of temper. He mellowed with age, becoming an enthusiastic pipe-smoker and knitter as well as musical leader. In 2007, he told the BBC that music helped stave off thoughts of death. Every time you give a concert, time is suspended: Youre mastering it; time is not the enemy, he said. It doesnt put off death, unfortunately, but it gives you a very good time while youre still alive. Davis had two children with his first wife, April Cantelo, and five with his second, Ashraf Naini. His children survive him.Bob Perry, 80HOMEBUILDERAUSTIN, Texas Republican mega-donor Bob Perry never cared for the spotlight. But writing big checks and financing one of the most famous television ads ever in a presidential campaign made the Texas millionaire famous nonetheless. A wealthy Houston homebuilder who shunned publicity while generously bankrolling GOP candidates and becoming a force in a new era of lavish spending in American politics Perry died over the weekend, said former Texas state Rep. Neal Jones, a close family friend. Jones said late Sunday that Perry, 80, died peacefully in his sleep Saturday night. He did not offer further details. Mr. Perry was a wonderful friend to many all around the United States, Jones said. With his passing weve lost a great patriot who has made a great difference in the lives of people all across the land. He will be sorely missed. Perry was a fixture of GOP fundraising in Texas and nationally dating back to former President George W. Bushs Texas gubernatorial races in the mid-1990s. His largesse included giving $4.4 million in 2004 to the Swift Boat Veterans campaign that sought to discredit thenDemocratic presidential nominee John Kerry. Perry spent prolifically on politics but did so from a distance. He rarely gave interviews, skipped fancy fundraisers and was a mystery to even many of his benefactors. Yet Perry couldnt avoid attention following his financing of the Swift Boat ads, which challenged Kerrys wartime service in Vietnam for which he received five medals. Some Democrats blamed Kerrys slow response to the criticism for sinking his candidacy. Perry donated money to help start the veterans group at the urging of his friend John ONeill, a Houston attorney who cowrote Unfit for Command, a book that questions Kerrys military service. Bill Miller, an Austin lobbyist who Perry hired as a spokesman when scrutiny surrounding the ads erupted, said in 2004 that Perrys donation to the Swift Boat Veterans reflected his belief in the groups message. In my conversations with Bob, he just said, John contacted me, told me what he was trying to do, and it sounded good to me. Thats really the way he does it, Miller said in 2004. People call him and pitch him, and if he likes what he hears, hell write a check. Perry was also a prominent financial supporter of Texas Gov. Rick Perry, but was not related. He was the founder of Houstonbased Perry Homes, one of the largest homebuilders in Texas.A6TUESDAY, APRIL16, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OBITUARIES The Citrus County Chronicles policy permits free and paid obituaries.

The Associated PressBOSTON Witnesses who heard the bomb blasts near the finish line of the Boston Marathon walked into a scene of chaos and carnage where they had expected celebration and revelry. A few accounts from people who were there: Bruce Mendelsohn was attending a post-race party in an office building just above the blast site when an explosion knocked him to the floor. There was like a flash, then a giant boom. The concussion blew me off the couch onto the ground, he said. The former Army medic rushed outside and found blood, glass and debris everywhere and began applying pressure to gruesome wounds. This stuff is more like Baghdad and Bombay than Boston, said Mendelsohn, who works at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It was pretty terrifying. Phil Kenkel was approaching the finish line when the two explosions happened just moments apart. The first made him wonder if it was a prank, the second stirred sheer terror. The second bomb went off virtually right beside me. About the only way out of that area was straight ahead, said Kenkel, of Stillwater, Okla. The glass was out of the building, and there was obviously a big hole in the crowd. You realize there must have been people there that were knocked down. Kenkel called his wife to let her know he was all right. He wasnt hurt, which is a miracle, I guess, Evelyn Quillen said. Peter Gravelle was in the VIP seating area at the finish line, waiting for his son and granddaughter when the blasts happened. He saw one victim sail through the air then what he believed was a severed limb. I thought I saw an arm, he said. His wife, Mary, said shell never forget the horror of what she saw. My heart breaks for all these people, she said. They actually fell down in the road. The poor souls, yelling for help. The couples son and granddaughter were unhurt. A Kansas surgeon had finished the race moments before he ran to help the wounded. The first blast came about 30 seconds after Dr. Chris Rupe, of Salina, Kan., crossed the finish line. At first, he thought the sound came from a building or grandstand collapsing. He hurried to see if he could help and spent about an hour in the medical tent treating the wounded. After that, most had been transported to hospital. Id just run 26 miles. I was starting to get tired, Rupe told The Salina Journal.There were a lot of great people who were there. There are a lot of good people in the world. Emily Biglin Valentine thanked God she ran a good time. The Novi, Mich., womans husband and good friend were in the exact spot of the explosions just a half-hour earlier. They heard the explosions as they walked to a train. It sounded like cannon fire. When I finished I was so elated, and I said, Im doing that again. Now she doesnt think shell go back.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL16, 2013 A9 0 0 0 E N X K Wednesday, April 17 3:30-4:30pm Community Room of the Lakes Region Library 1511 Druid Rd., Inverness, FL 34452.

Blood stained the pavement, and huge shards were missing from window panes as high as three stories. Boston police said three people were killed. Hospitals reported at least 140 injured, at least 15 of them critically. Some 23,000 runners took part in the race, one of the worlds oldest and most prestigious marathons. One of Bostons biggest annual events, the race winds up near Copley Square, not far from the landmark Prudential Center and the Boston Public Library. It is held on Patriots Day, which commemorates the first battles of the American Revolution, at Concord and Lexington in 1775. Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis asked people to stay indoors or go back to their hotel rooms and avoid crowds as bomb squads methodically checked parcels and bags left along the race route. He said investigators didnt know precisely where the bombs were planted or whether they were hidden in mailboxes or trash cans. He said authorities had received no specific intelligence that anything was going to happen at the race. The Federal Aviation Administration barred low-flying aircraft from within 3.5 miles of the site. Obama was briefed on the explosions by Homeland Security adviser Lisa Monaco. Obama also told Mayor Tom Menino and Gov. Deval Patrick that his administration would provide whatever support was needed, the White House said. We still dont know who did this or why, Obama said, adding, Make no mistake: We will get to the bottom of this. With scant official information to guide them, members of Congress said there was little or no doubt it was an act of terrorism. We just dont know whether its foreign or domestic, said Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security. A few miles away from the finish line and around the same time, a fire broke out at the John F. Kennedy Library. The police commissioner said it may have been caused by an incendiary device but didnt appear to be related to the bombings. The first loud explosion occurred on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line. The second explosion could be heard a few seconds later. They occurred about four hours into the race and two hours after the mens winner crossed the line. By that point, more than 17,000 of the runners had finished the race, but thousands of others were farther back along the course. The attack may have been timed for maximum carnage: The four-hour mark is typically a crowded moment near the finish line because of the slow-but-steady recreational runners completing the race and because of all the relatives and friends clustered around to cheer them on. Runners in the medical tent for treatment of dehydration or other race-related ills were pushed out to make room for victims of the bombing. A senior U.S. intelligence official said the two other explosive devices found nearby were being dismantled. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the findings publicly. A woman who was a few feet from the second bomb, Brighid Wall, 35, of Duxbury, said that when it exploded, runners and spectators froze, unsure of what to do. Her husband threw their children to the ground, lay on top of them and another man lay on top of them and said, Dont get up, dont get up. After a minute or so without another explosion, Wall said, she and her family headed to a Starbucks and out the back door through an alley. Around them, the windows of the bars and restaurants were blown out. She said she saw six to eight people bleeding profusely, including one man who was kneeling, dazed, with blood trickling down his head. Another person was on the ground covered in blood and not moving. My ears are zinging. Their ears are zinging, Wall said. It was so forceful. It knocked us to the ground.

For the RECORD Some Scott picks in jeopardy Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Some appointments by Florida Gov. Rick Scott appear in jeopardy of getting passed up this year by the Florida Senate. Among those at the top of list: The states surgeon general and leader of the state Department of Health. John Armstrong isnt alone. The Senate appears unlikely to confirm all 11 people appointed in the last year to the board charged with running fledgling Florida Polytechnic University in Lakeland. Sen. Jack Latvala, RClearwater and chairman of the Senate panel responsible for screening appointments, said a decision was made against onfirming the university board members because the fate of the school remains in flux. The school was established last year by the Florida Legislature, but it still doesnt have any students. There have been discussions about whether the university should be placed under the control of another college.
Dish offering to buy Sprint NEW YORK Dish Network Corp. is trying to snag U.S. wireless carrier Sprint Nextel from a Japanese suitor. Dish offered $25.5 billion in cash and stock on Monday for Sprint, which Dish says beats an offer from Japans Softbank Corp. If the Dish deal goes through, it would create a unique combination of pay-TV and wireless operator. Dish hopes to lure customers with the promise of TV service that can go with them, out of the house and on their phones. It has already broken ranks with the pay-TV industry by providing a set-top box that can send recorded shows to iPads.GM, Ford to work on transmissionsDETROIT General Motors and Ford are putting aside their longstanding rivalry to work together to develop a new generation of fuel-efficient automatic transmissions. The companies said Monday that their engineers will jointly design nineand 10speed transmissions that will go into many of new cars and trucks. When transmissions have more gears, engines dont have to work as hard. That saves fuel. As long as the shifting is smooth, most drivers probably dont give much thought to their transmissions.Chinas economic growth slowsBEIJING Chinas economic growth slowed unexpectedly in the first three months of the year, fueling concern about the strength of its economy. The worlds second-largest economy grew by 7.7 percent over a year earlier, down from the previous quarters 7.9 percent, the government reported Monday. That fell short of many private-sector forecasts.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL16, 2013 A11 Money &MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,280 1,360 1,440 1,520 1,600 OA NDJFM 1,520 1,560 1,600 S&P 500Close: 1,552.36 Change: -36.49 (-2.3%) 10 DAYS 12,000 12,800 13,600 14,400 15,200 OA NDJFM 14,360 14,660 14,960 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 14,599.20 Change: -265.86 (-1.8%) 10 DAYSAdvanced386 Declined2711 New Highs93 New Lows85 Vol. (in mil.)4,499 Pvs. Volume3,152 1,729 1,423 275 2241 53 57 NYSE NASD DOW14865.0614598.5814599.20-265.86-1.79%+11.41% DOW Trans.6143.755902.825909.86-233.89-3.81%+11.36% DOW Util.524.35516.31516.31-7.01-1.34%+13.95% NYSE Comp.9131.638953.388953.94-234.32-2.55%+6.05% NASDAQ3283.403213.463216.49-78.46-2.38%+6.52% S&P5001588.841552.281552.36-36.49-2.30%+8.85% S&P4001149.231110.071111.71-37.52-3.26%+8.95% Wilshire 500016756.2416340.3316340.81-415.43-2.48%+8.97% Russell 2000938.67904.91907.18-35.67-3.78%+6.81% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

The trigger for the selloff came from China, where the worlds secondlargest economy expanded 7.7 percent in the first three months of the year, well below forecasts of 8 percent or better. That news pummeled copper, oil and other commodities. Shares of oil and mining companies fared the worst because China is a huge importer of their products. The decline came after a pile of negative economic reports. In addition to the concerns about China, a separate report showed weak manufacturing in the Northeast, and a home builders survey indicated housing activity isnt going to be strong, either, said Steven Ricchiuto, chief economist for Mizuho Securities. People are realizing that the global economy isnt as strong as they expected it to be, he said. The market began tumbling hours before reports emerged of two bombs exploding in the packed streets near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The attack that killed two people and injured more than 100 was just one more thing to worry investors. The pullback disrupted, at least for the moment, the phenomenal rally that has sent the Dow Jones industrial average up 13 percent and the Standard & Poors 500 index up 11 percent in 2013. Both indexes marked record highs only last Wednesday. But the markets exceptional performance has fueled widespread speculation about an inevitable retreat. Concerns that Cyprus and other troubled European countries may sell gold to raise cash have also weighed on prices for precious metals, said Dan Greenhaus, chief global strategist at the brokerage BTIG. The Dow tumbled 265.86 points to close at 14,599.20, a decline of 1.8 percent. Caterpillar, a maker of heavy equipment used by miners, led the index lower, falling 3 percent to $82.27. The S&P 500 index slumped 36.48 points to 1,552.37, a loss of 2.3 percent. The S&P was led by Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, which fell 8 percent to $29.27. Analysts at Citigroup placed a sell rating on the mining giant on the expectation that copper prices will continue sliding. The Nasdaq composite fell 78.46 points, or 2.4 percent, to 3,216.49. Commodity slump pulls down stocks Associated PressNEW YORK The shine has come off the gold market. The price of gold logged its biggest one-day decline in more than 30 years Monday, tumbling $140.30, or 9 percent, to $1,361. While gold has been gradually falling since hitting a peak of $1,900 in August 2011, the sell-off accelerated late last week. Before the drop, gold had climbed every year since 2001, as investors bought the metal both as protection against inflation and as a so-called safe haven. The precious metal peaked as lawmakers wrangled over raising the debt ceiling in the summer of 2011 and threatened to push the U.S. into default. But a slowdown in inflation, combined with speculation the Federal Reserve is considering winding down its stimulus program, prompted investors to sell Friday. Reports that Cyprus may sell some of its gold reserves to pay off its debts, following its bailout, also rattled the market. The selling then intensified Monday as speculators dumped their holdings. Heres why gold is falling and what the decline says about the economy: Investors bought gold because they were afraid that inflation would rise too fast as a result of the Feds effort to stimulate growth by driving down interest rates through purchases of government bonds. The higher cost of goods would erode the purchasing power of dollars. So far, though, inflation has remained under control, even as the economy has improved. In fact, the value of the dollar has risen recently relative to other major economies. That makes gold a less attractive investment. Investors also buy gold as a safe haven, a kind of insurance when they are worried about the possibility of some kind of a financial collapse. While there has been a lot to worry about over the last six years the financial crisis, the threat of a U.S. default, meltdown in Europe none of those events have led to financial Armageddon. That fear factor has dissipated after central bankers around the world have bailed out one economy after the other. Gold is an insurance asset for when things go very wrong, says Nicholas Brooks, head of research and investment strategy at etf securities. Its just that people dont feel the need for insurance right now. Could gold drop signal end to boom? Associated PressIn this Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012 file photo, a technician prepares gold bars of to pack for delivery at the Emirates Gold company in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Gold has plunged more than 10 percent the last two days, suggesting that a decade-long surge in the metal is over. Business BRIEFS From wire reports
OPINION Page A12TUESDAY, APRIL 16, 2013 No age limit on driversI just had to give you my opinion on the issue of old drivers. I dont know how many old people live down here in Florida. I know that if you take away their wheels they are lost. Most of them depend on their car to take then to the store, church, yard sales, doctors, etc. If they are like me they dont go anywhere. On Tamara Bakers comment they should be tested every six months, which is wrong: I can understand a test every two years. The most important test would be the eye test. But, they should have their test on a public highway, not a parking lot. Most old people I know are good drivers. (No age limit.)George W. Schloendorn Sr. Floral CityPlease keep greedy noses out of itHooray for Citrus Memorial. Citrus Memorial hospital has served this community very well. The Citrus County Health Board, staffed with Gov. Scotts appointees, has done nothing but create grief for the hospital by withholding funds already earned by, and collected for, the hospital. Withholding these funds was obviously done to force the hospital into a distressed sale. Why? There could be no reason except to create a for profit hospital so that someone can get that profit. Citrus Memorial works just fine. The politicians should get their greedy noses out and let the health care professionals do their job for you and me.Gene Christie Beverly HillsPoor decision hurts countyTo put it simply: Florida Power took money from their customers to repair the nuclear plant. Instead of hiring qualified people, they used our money to fix it themselves and destroyed the plant a clear misuse of our money while creating a serious financial loss to Citrus County. Perhaps the citizens of Citrus County could file a class-action suit.Margie Johnson Beverly Hills Acouple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of sitting next to two former Florida death row inmates. Herman Lindsay was exonerated in 2006 after three years on death row. Seth Penalver was exonerated four months ago, after spending 18 of his 39 years in prison. They were in Flagler Beach to talk about their ordeal, and about one of Floridas most enduring shames: a death penalty system so clunky, so embarrassing, that 24 people have been exonerated since the state re-instituted what amounts to state-sponsored murder in 1976. That gives Florida the double-bladed distinction of having exonerated more people off death row than any other state. At least some of the $50 million a year the state spends on that aberrant system isnt wasted. There are plenty of reasons that argue against the death penalty religious, moral, constitutional (what is more cruel and unusual than lethal injection, a method the Nazis first put to broad use during the Holocaust?). In Florida, mere math is one such argument. The states grim ratio of one exoneration for every 17 people currently on death row certainly suggests that at least some of the 75 people the state killed since 1976 were innocent, and many of the 405 on death row today might be. Yet Florida has yet to join the growing list of states among them New Jersey, Illinois, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut that have repealed a punishment so barbaric that no other western nation practices it. Nations that most enthusiastically do form a roster of totalitarian relics: China, Iran, Saudi Arabia. I called sitting next to Lindsay and Penalver a privilege because they are the walking dead who returned to the living. Unlike people who confabulate stories of near-death experiences, Lindsay and Penalver for years were forced to the edge of the abyss and kept there until the state was forced to set them free. As they spoke in Flagler Beach, neither pretended to have been angels in their former lives. But there was no justifiable connection between their crimes and the torture they endured. And they justly ridiculed a system that had chained them to the drawn-out rituals of the most rationally calculated, premeditated form of murder there is. I hear about these last meals, Penalver said. I dont want no last meal. Its sad, but its true. Youre talking about killing me and you ask me about a last meal? Those rituals are designed to mask barbarism with solemnity. It doesnt work. It accentuates the absurd, which is the culmination of every execution. Last week, I went to Starke state prison for the first time to witness the scene just outside the prison walls. Larry Eugene Mann was being killed a few hundred yards from us for the 1980 murder of a 10-year-old girl in the Tampa area. Two roped-off holding pens had been created in a large field across the road from the prison, one marked literally with a sign that read supporters and another that read protesters. We might as well have been at a high school debate. A row of Florida Highway Patrol cruisers and troopers divided the two groups, ridiculously, because neither group exceeded three dozen people. Neither group was much interested in the other. It was a wonderfully mild day for an execution. Cows arrayed in their pasture against the prisons fences mooed. Birds and traffic flew by, indifferent. There were prayers. There was idle chatter. There was a lot of smart-phone fiddling. The hour of execution passed as the sun fell. Around 7:30 p.m., a couple of vans full of witnesses to the execution another one of those normalized follies came out. Then the hearse. There was a news conference under a white tent on the same field, though calling it a news conference plays into the revolting stage-management of the revenge-murder. The entire afternoon seemed so civil and rustic, like the first scenes of Picnic at Hanging Rock. Which is why the horror so easily endures in this state. An execution is just another day. Mark Elliott is nevertheless hopeful. He heads Floridians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty. Hes been to every vigil outside Starke for a decade or so. He was there again last Monday. Segregation, Jim Crow, women not being able to vote, lynchings, he told me as we waited for word of Manns death, all of that sounds so barbaric. But it wasnt so long ago. The death penalty will one day take its place in that grim gallery. But the death chamber needs fewer Floridian fans first.

This model is intended to reward medical providers who deliver high-quality care and save the system money in the process. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has recognized just a handful of ACOs in Florida. As of January this year, Citrus County has one: The Nature Coast ACO, a group of primary care physicians affiliated with the West Florida Medical Associates. The federal Affordable Care Act included a number of alternatives for attacking the problems plaguing our health care system. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services put the ACO option into effect in January 2012, creating whats called the Medicare Shared Savings Program. Heres how it works: the MSSP ACOs physicians take responsibility become accountable for enhancing the quality of care received by Medicare beneficiaries while cutting excessive costs. The improvements are anticipated through greater sharing of information among providers so the right health care actions are taken at the right time. Especially in the case of those with chronic health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, unnecessary testing, imaging and hospital admissions or readmissions can be avoided with appropriate preventive care and proper monitoring. For a long time, the health care system has been about the money. But turning that concept on its head, incentives in Accountable Care Organizations are all about efficient, effective, patientcentered care. MSSP ACOs sign three-year agreements. During that time, they are evaluated on whether stringent health quality standards are met and health care expenditures are reduced. If those goals are met, the ACO members share in the savings. Conversely, if those goals are not met, the ACO shares in losses. The good news for patients with traditional Medicare is they are still free to consult any physician desired, regardless of ACO status. Traditional Medicare rights and benefits will not be constrained in any way. What those patients may notice, though, is less duplication in paperwork, testing or appointment-setting, and more attention to whether they are complying with prescribed health care regimens. Expect to be seeing and hearing more about ACOs in the future. They can include just physician groups, or constitute a coalition of hospitals, clinics and doctors, sometimes friendly rivals who want to share best practices. ACOs in other states with at least a years experience already are reporting improvements in terms of increased use of primary care physicians, decreased unnecessary use of emergency departments, better health outcomes, and pass-along savings in the case of some self-insured groups. Doctors for the most part currently operate under a fee-for-service model. The ACO movement reorients physician incentives, weighting compensation to positive patient care outcomes. While there still may be implementation wrinkles to iron out, everyone can get onboard with ACO triple aim goals of patient satisfaction, high-quality care and affordability.

Disgusted with our BOCCIn the opinion column, I like Respect the process, leaders should stick to roles prescribed by county laws. Respect the process. What about an ordinance such as impact fee ordinance? I feel the board of county commissioners, school board and our administration has not adhered to this ordinance. It is time for a forensic audit. The impact fee ordinance is for increased capacity to be used within seven years or refunded at 5 percent interest. The BOCC are the watchdogs of these monies. Annually, the school board needs to apply for allocation of impact fee monies from the BOCC for a specific purpose allowed under the ordinance. The school board has purchased property on (County Road) 486 in Pine Ridge for a new school in 2007 which may not be built for 15 to 20 years and has just allocated more than $200,000 to DAB for road improvements accessing the future school property, which has a useful life of approximately 20 years before it has to be resurfaced depending on use. I am not saying the purchase of the property was bad. The funding was inappropriate. Funding should of come from other sources, not impact fee monies. We have decreased capacity now. The impact fee monies are for increased capacity seven years, not a school we may not see for 15 to 20 years. This is speculation with monies from individuals. There should be an aging report on when a specific person paid an impact fee. Where, when and how it was spent. How it was approved, whether the school board applied to the BOCC and a meeting held for the purpose of the allocation of impact fee dollars for a specific purpose. I hope our administration is ready. There are attorneys in other counties right now representing individuals who have paid impact fees in 2006 and are now applying for refunds at 5 percent interest seven years later as stated in the ordinance. When we apply for our impact fee reimbursement with our 5 percent interest the school board may be off the hook. The monies were distributed to them. Did they follow the ordinance? Did the BOCC follow the ordinance? Does the administration have all aging reports from all individuals? I would rather see people working, building, adding ad valorem taxes and this county prosper. We have a problem with Duke Energy. We have a problem with our budget with todays economy. Does our BOCC want a problem with the impact fees? Im tired of wasting time with the BOCC on impact fees. Im going for my reimbursement.Wayne Bardsly Beverly HillsStrange, but true cat taleThis is an unbelievable story and yet I know its true because it happened to me personally. About a year ago my beloved cat, Sahib, died. A week later I received an invitation to take the German Life magazine, but I was shocked to find that it was addressed to Sahib Anderson. I telephoned the German Life magazine for information on how they had received Sahibs name. They told me that they could not find such a name in their computer. Now you may not believe the rest of the story, but here goes I saw in the Greenbelt Gazettethey had cats that needed a home and so I called them. They told me they had a white cat whose owner had died and no one in the family wanted to keep him. I indicated I was interested in him and so I have him in my house now for keeping and probably adopting him. He is very loving, wants to be with you and even sleeps with you.

Across town, thousands of students clashed with National Guard troops in riot gear who fired tear gas and plastic bullets to turn the protesters back from marching on the city center. Students threw stones and pieces of concrete.NKorea calm on key holidayPYONGYANG, North Korea North Koreans celebrated the birthday of their first leader Monday by dancing in plazas and snacking on peanuts, with little hint of the fiery language that has kept the international community fearful that a missile launch may be imminent. Pyongyang fired off a rocket ahead of the last anniversary of Kim Il Sungs birth the centennial but this time the day was simply the start of a two-day holiday for Pyongyang residents who spilled into the streets. There was no sense of panic in the North Korean capital, where very few locals have access to international broadcasts and foreign newspapers speculating about an imminent missile launch and detailing the international diplomacy under way to try to rein Pyongyang in.Boat with illegal meat hits reefMANILA, Philippines A Chinese boat that ran into a coral reef in the southwestern Philippines held evidence of even more environmental destruction inside: more than 22,000 pounds of meat from a protected species, the pangolin or scaly anteater. The steel-hulled vessel hit an atoll on April 8 at the Tubbataha National Marine Park, a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site on Palawan island. Coast guard spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Armand Balilo said Monday that 400 boxes, each containing 25 to 30 kilograms of frozen pangolins, were discovered during a second inspection of the boat Saturday. The World Wide Fund for Nature Philippines said the Chinese vessel F/N Min Long Yu could have been carrying up to 2,000 of the toothless, insect-eating animals rolled up in the boxes, with their scales already removed. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressWASHINGTON A bipartisan proposal to expand background checks to more gun buyers seemed in jeopardy Monday as a growing number of Republican senators expressed opposition to the proposal, perhaps enough to derail it. But there was plenty of time for lobbying and deal-making to affect the outcome, which remained uncertain. The White House said President Barack Obama was calling lawmakers, as both sides hunted support for a nail-biting showdown. As of Monday evening, some senators were saying the vote now appeared likely late this week, rather than midweek as top Democrats have hoped. Such a delay would give both sides more time to find support. The game hasnt even started yet, let alone over, said Sen. Joe Manchin, DW.Va., who reached a background check compromise last week with Sen. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., on which the Senate was preparing to vote. At stake is what has become the heart of this years gun control drive in response to Decembers killing of children and staff at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn. Supporters consider a broadening of the buyers subjected to background checks to be the most effective step lawmakers can take, and Obama urged near universal checks in the plan he unveiled in January. Sixteen Republicans voted last week to reject an effort by conservatives that would have blocked the Senate from even considering a broad bill restricting firearms. With that debate underway, Democrats hope to win enough supporters from this group to gain passage of the first amendment to that bill the compromise between Manchin and Toomey, which expands background checks but less broadly than Obama has wanted. By Monday evening, eight Republican senators from that group said they would oppose the Manchin-Toomey plan and two were leaning against it. Combined with the 31 senators who voted against debating the overall gun bill last week, that would bring potential opponents of expanding background checks to 41 just enough votes to block the Senate from considering the compromise. Gun check deal in jeopardy Republicans balk at provisions; final vote looks to be close Associated PressBAGHDAD Insurgents in Iraq deployed a series of car bombs as part of highly coordinated attacks that cut across a wide swath of the country Monday, killing at least 55 on the deadliest day in nearly a month. The assault bore the hallmarks of a resurgent al-Qaida in Iraq and appeared aimed at sowing fear days before the first elections since U.S. troops withdrew. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but coordinated attacks are a favorite tactic of al-Qaidas Iraq branch. Iraqi officials believe the insurgent group is growing stronger and increasingly coordinating with allies fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad across the border. They say rising lawlessness on the Syria-Iraq frontier and cross-border cooperation with a Syrian group, the Nusra Front, has improved the militants supply of weapons and foreign fighters. The intensifying violence, some of it related to the provincial elections scheduled for Saturday, is worrying for Iraqi officials and Baghdad-based diplomats alike. At least 14 candidates have been killed in recent weeks, including one slain in an apparent ambush Sunday. Of course we are concerned about the violence in the country that has been increasing in the last weeks, United Nations envoy Martin Kobler told The Associated Press. He condemned the bloodshed and urged Iraqi officials to push ahead with the elections. They should be free and fair, and every voter should go to the polls free of intimidation and fear, he said. Iraqi Army Maj. Gen. Hassan alBaydhani, the No. 2 official at Baghdads military command, said authorities managed to defuse three car bombs in Baghdad before they could go off. He described the violence as an attempt to derail the elections and intimidate voters. The terrorists want to grab headlines as we approach election day, he said. Mondays attacks most of them car bombings were unusually broad in scope. Among the places where attacks erupted were the Sunni-dominated western Anbar province and Saddam Husseins hometown of Tikrit, the ethnically contested oil-rich city of Kirkuk and towns in the predominantly Shiite south. Iraq bombs kill 55 Associated PressCivilians gather Monday at the scene of a car bomb attack in east Baghdads neighborhood of Kamaliya, Iraq. Bloody attacks take place less than a week before vote Civilians gather at the scene of a car bomb attack in Iraq. Less than a week before Iraqis in much of the country are scheduled to vote in the countrys first elections since the 2011 U.S. troop withdrawal, a series of attacks across Iraq, many involving car bombs, has killed and wounded dozens of people, police said. Associated PressWASHINGTON Heres a little secret for all you procrastinators on Tax Day: The Internal Revenue Service doesnt like to talk about it, but as long as you dont owe any additional taxes, there is no penalty for filing a few days late. The late filing penalty is usually 5 percent of the unpaid taxes for each month or part of a month a return is late. That can add up quickly if you owe additional taxes. But what if the unpaid taxes are zero? Five percent of zero is ... zero! However, if you wait more than three years to file, you forfeit your refund. So maybe its better to file by Monday, after all. Besides, if youre getting a refund, why wait? The IRS got a late start on tax season this year, thanks to a last-minute tax law passed by Congress on Jan. 1. But the deadline for filing returns didnt change, so if you owe money, its time to settle up with the government. A look at this years filing season, through April 5: Returns filed so far: 96.6 million. Share of taxpayers getting a refund: 81 percent. Total amount of refunds issued so far: $214 billion. Average refund: $2,755. Average refund in 2012: $2,794. The rise of computers: 89 percent of returns have been filed electronically. Clinging to the past: That leaves 11 percent still filing paper returns. These people are getting a refund: 29 percent of Americans in a Pew Research Center poll said they like doing their taxes. These people are getting a big refund: 5 percent said they love doing their taxes. These people are not getting a refund: 26 percent said they hate doing their taxes. As of March 9, the IRS detected 220,821 fraudulent returns. Tax deadline not much of a deadline for most

A sailor assigned to the future USS Anchorage (LPD 23) will be among five sailors competing in the ASICS U.S. Open National Wrestling Championships April 17-21 in Las Vegas, Nev. Logistics Specialist Seaman Justin Nolen participated in the teams open try-outs held in March and was notified of his selection earlier this month. Its amazing to be selected because I get a chance to not only represent the command, but the entire Navy, said Nolen, 20, who hails from Inverness. This is a sport Ive always competed in because of the strength and discipline required to be successful. Ive always tried to embody those traits, especially as a sailor, and it will be an honor to represent the Navy in Las Vegas. Nolen will compete in the 51 kg. (121 pounds) category and will need to finish in the top seven to qualify for an invitation to the U.S. World Team Trials in Stillwater, Okla. in June. He certainly has the drive to succeed, said Logistics Specialist 1st Class Christopher Klock, Nolens division leading petty officer. Its great to see him push so hard, because that ethic seeps into his work ethic and we get a great sailor as a result. I wish him the best, and if he doesnt make it, I know hell be up there again next year because thats how dedicated he is. Nolen explained competing on a national level never gets any easier. The nerves will always be there, because everyone is just as good as you are, if not better, at that level, he said. The difference this time is it means something more to wear a shirt walking into the arena that says Navy on it. I hope to represent us and Anchorage well.

Area tennis players bow out of state meet Citrus Dodd suffers first HS loss; Lecantos Gamble sisters also fall JAMESBLEVINS CorrespondentThe Lecanto Panthers No. 1 doubles team, consisting of sisters Amber and Madison Gamble, as well as Citrus Hurricane No. 1 singles player Melanie Dodd, traveled to Altamonte Springs as the lone representatives from Citrus County to compete against a collection of the very best tennis players the state of Florida has to offer. Despite strong efforts from both schools, the Gamble sisters and Dodd were unable to get past the first of four rounds during the FHSAA Class 3A state tournament at Sanlando Park on Monday morning. The Gamble sisters were victims to Bartram Trails Aubrey French and Rachel Thigten, who won in straight sets 6-4, 6-3. Dodd drew the No. 3 ranked seed in the Class 3A state tournament, Eau Gallies Christi Woodson, during the first round lottery. Woodson moved swiftly past Dodd 6-1, 6-1. (The loss) doesnt take anything away from Mels season, Citrus head coach Scott Waters said. Shes got one more year and shes an incredible kid. The meet marked the first time any of the three players had competed at a state tennis meet. Dodd qualified for state with her District 3A-5 No. 1 singles championship win on April 2. The Citrus junior has the unique distinction of being undefeated in her district for all three years of high school (15-0 this season) and has won a district title all three years she has played tennis for Citrus (No. 4 singles as a freshman and No. 2 singles last year). She goes out there and adjusts her game to who she is playing, Waters said. After a game or two she figures it out and does her thing. She has a lot of heart. The first-round loss in the state tournament was the first Dodd has suffered in three years (five years if you include her middle school streak). Lecantos Gamble sisters qualified for state with their No. 1 doubles district title over Forest (who won an April 9 rematch in the regional finals). The Gambles finished the year with a 14-3 record as a doubles team. Im very proud of my girls and the way they played, Lecanto head coach Sammie Hall said. And Im glad that Amber was able to experience state, since she is the lone senior in the top five this season. They hung in (there) and kept trying, Hall continued. They played well. Warriors pound Wildwood Seven Rivers earns 13-3 win STEVEMCGUNNIGLE CorrespondentHOMOSASSA The Seven Rivers baseball team extended its winning streak to six Monday night, routing visiting Wildwood 13-3 in five innings from Dazzy Vance Field in Homosassa. Fittingly, the Warriors two lone seniors were key contributors on their Senior Night, as John Iwaniec (2 for 3, home run, double, three RBI, two runs, steal) and Lance Mosher (1 for 2, RBI, two runs, steal, walk) led the way. The obvious turning point in the game was an eight-run second inning, seven of those runs coming with two outs, off Wildwood starter Dalton Pope.Parker Pilsburyled off the inning with a walk, stole second, was bunted to third by Garrett Briggs, then scored on a Coy Phillips (two RBI)groundout for the first run. With two out and two on, Iwaniec turned on a first-pitch fastball, launching it down the right field line and out for a 4-0 lead.Cory Weiandkept the rally going with a walk, stole second, and moved to third on a passed ball. Andrew Gage singled him home on a grounder through the left side, then stole second. Mosher tomahawked a line drive just over the bag at third to score Gage, making it 6-0. Pilsbury came up for the second time in the inning and laced a double to the fence in right, before a Briggs bloop single scored Mosher and Pilsbury to make it 8-0. Afterward, Seven Rivers head coach Jim Ervin was obviously pleased. We scored a lot of runs with two outs tonight. We hit the ball well once again, and thats something were doing well right now, going to the plate and being aggressive, Ervin said. The Warriors (13-2)didnt let up, plating three runs in the fourth inning before Gage rocketed a long two-run homer to STEPHEN E. LASKO /for the ChronicleLecanto catcher Amber Atkinson slides in at home Monday, well ahead of the throw to West Port catcher Lillie Guerrero, during a six-run inning for the Panthers at the first-round district playoff game at Lecanto. The Panthers advanced to todays game against Central with a 12-6 triumph. Lecanto advances to District 6A-6 semifinals with 12-6 victory C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO The inconsistencies that have plagued Lecantos softball team all season made an appearance again in Mondays District 6A-6 play-in game against West Port. The Panthers weathered this challenge, however, answering a four-run Wolf Pack attack in the second inning with a six-run rally of their own, en route to a 12-6 thumping in a game played at Lecanto. The victory pushes the Panthers record to 14-12 overall and gives them a berth in the 6A-6 semifinals opposite top-seeded Brooksville Central. That game will be at 7 p.m. tonight, following Citrus vs. Spring Hill Springstead (slated to start at 5 p.m.), both at West Port. If we can play close to error-free, Lecanto coach Robert Dupler said. We lost to Central 10-9 and 2-1 two onerun games. If we play our game, if we play hard and to the best of our ability, then Ill be satisfied. Lecanto did play hard against West Port, a team that was winless in district play and won just once all season. Still, after scoring a run on a lead-off triple by Amber Atkinson and a sacrifice fly by Paige Richards in the first, the Panthers allowed the Wolf Pack to put together a four-run comeback aided by three Lecanto errors in the second. West Port obliged with a mistake that turned the games tide back in favor of Lecanto in the bottom of the second. With runners on first and second and two out, Atkinson sent a towering fly ball into short left field. At least three Wolf Pack players could have made a play on the ball, but none did. It fell safely, with two runs scoring and Atkinson taking residence at second base. Lecanto did not need any more encouragement. Atkinson, whose bloop double scored Sidney Holstein (who reached base on a double) and Lilly Parrish (who walked), crossed the plate on a single by Richards. Richards then scored on a single by Amber Hopkins, who scored on a double by Kelsie Lilley. A single by Danielle Yant plated Lilley.

B2TUESDAY, APRIL16, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Associated PressBOSTON Mike Napoli drove in the winning run with a double in the ninth inning and the Boston Red Sox completed a three-game sweep of the light-hitting Tampa Bay Rays with a 3-2 win on Monday. The Rays had two hits before finally showing some offensive punch in the ninth when Desmond Jennings led off with a single, stole second and scored the tying run on a single by Ben Zobrist off Andrew Bailey (1-0). Joel Peralta (0-1) retired Bostons first batter in the bottom of the ninth before walking Dustin Pedroia. Napoli then hit a liner off the left-field wall and Pedroia easily beat the throw home. The Red Sox had lost all three of their previous traditional morning games against Tampa Bay on Patriots Day.AMERICAN LEAGUE Blue Jays 4, White Sox 3TORONTO Mark Buehrle pitched in and out of trouble into the seventh inning to beat his former team J.P.

Kevin Correia (1-1) earned his first American League win after finishing seven innings for the third time in as many starts with the Twins, getting two double-play grounders to help him limit the Angels to solo home runs by Peter Bourjos and former Twins utility infielder Brendan Harris. Angels starter Joe Blanton (0-3) was battered again for nine hits, one walk and four runs in 4 2/3 innings. Mauer doubled and scored in the first and led off the fifth inning with a homer to leftcenter. Trevor Plouffe also went deep off Blanton, and Justin Morneau drove in a run with a double.NATIONAL LEAGUE Nationals 10, Marlins 3MIAMI Jordan Zimmermann pitched a six-hitter for his third victory of the season, and the Washington Nationals bounced back from a humbling weekend to beat the Miami Marlins 10-3. Ryan Zimmerman hit his first home run and had four RBIs to lead a 16-hit outburst. Zimmermann (3-0) struck out six, walked one and threw 102 pitches in his second career complete game. The Nationals were outscored 18-5 while being swept in a three-game series at home against Atlanta. They took out any lingering frustration on the Marlins (2-11), who came into the game tied for the worst record in the majors.Reds 4, Phillies 2CINCINNATI Brandon Phillips drove in a pair of runs with a basesloaded single in the eighth inning and the Cincinnati Reds ended their fivegame losing streak by beating the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2. The Reds still didnt hit much, but left-hander Cliff Lee helped them by letting in a run on a wild pitch in the seventh. Todd Frazier followed with a sacrifice fly for a 2-0 lead. Bronson Arroyo (2-1) gave up pinch-hitter Chase Utleys two-run homer in the eighth, but Cincinnati rallied against the Philadelphia bullpen. The Reds loaded the bases against Jeremy Horst (0-1), and Phillips singled off Mike Adams to break the tie.Cardinals 10, Pirates 6PITTSBURGH Jon Jay and Matt Holliday each had two hits and two RBIs as the St. Louis Cardinals jumped on the Pittsburgh Pirates early in a 10-6 victory. Allen Craig doubled and drove in three runs for the Cardinals, who knocked around James McDonald (1-2) with a seven-run second inning. Lance Lynn (2-0) labored through five innings to get the win.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 7-4 a lead they would not relinquish. The Wolf Pack did narrow the gap, scoring twice in the fourth on a twoout error to make it 7-6. But a five-run Lecanto fifth inning ended the scoring, a rally that began with Breanna Martins single. Holstein tried to move her up on a bunt, but the Wolf Pack throw to first ended up in the outfield, allowing both runners to come around and score to make it 9-6. Walks to Parrish and Atkinson put Richards at the plate, and she delivered a two-run double. Richards later came home on an error to make it 12-6. Yant started and got the pitching win, while Kasey Owens took the loss for West Port (1-21 for the season). Richards paced the offense for Lecanto with two hits and four runs batted in. Hopkins, Lilley and Atkinson also had two hits apiece, with Atkinson getting a pair of RBI. There are two keys, said Panthers assistant coach Butch Miller when asked about Lecantos tournament chances. Our pitchers have to hit their spots. We dont have the kind of pitchers who will overpower people, but they can change speeds and hit their spots. If they do hit their spots, that will give our fielders a chance to field the ball. We try to throw the ball so we know where theyll hit it. As for Lecantos offense, Miller said, We have the hitters. All we have to do is relax. And, as Dupler said, play error-free. Central likely wont be as helpful to the Lecanto cause as West Port was. left field in the bottom of the fifth for a walk-off mercy rule win. Gage finished 2 for 3 with three RBI. Iwaniec acknowledged his teams efforts at the plate, while saying of his game-changing home run, It felt great, but after that, we didnt quiet down and we just kept it on them. Mosher added, We came out knowing it would be a hard game. We knew we had to come out ready and play our best. Wildwood head coach Stephen Nave agreed. Two outs, we committed three or four errors, but youve got to give them credit, they didnt give up, Nave said. The Wildcats (6-15)had a three-run third inning to make it 8-3, as Torre Park had a two-run double and Pope drove in the only other Wildwood run on a groundout. But Seven Rivers bounced back with three runs in the fourth to again extend the margin. Wildwood pitching struggled all night, as Pope (1 2/3 innings, eight runs, six hits, two walks, one strikeout), Brady Adams (1 1/3 innings, two runs,one hit, three walks) and Ronnie Ingram (2 innings, three runs, hit, walk) all labored against the relentless Warrior lineup. Conversely, seventh grader Pilsbury impressed from the hill, going all five innings, giving up two earned runs on four hits with three walks and two strikeouts. I thought Parker did a really nice job tonight, Ervin said. He stayed poised even with runners on base and he got out of several jams.

Norman Berman, 84, lives in nearby West Palm Beach and has been a Marlins fan since their first game in 1993. He also was the Dodgers 19-year-old ballboy in 1947, the year Robinson broke the sports color barrier. Berman witnessed the challenges Robinson overcame as depicted in the new movie with opponents relentlessly taunting and heckling the Dodgers rookie. That movie was very close to what he had to go through, Berman said before the Marlins game. They threw at him, they stepped on his feet, and he never turned his back. He never said anything to them. He never tried to fight them. He walked away with a smile on his face, because they told him, If you argue and fight with them, youre going to ruin it for everybody else. Bermans only season as ballboy was in 1947, and he watched Robinson and the Dodgers reach the World Series. Berman said Robinson befriended him, played catch with him and gave tips on how to make a double-play pivot. He was a wonderful person, Berman said. I learned something from him when you go through tough times, youve got to stay positive. I dont think most of the ballplayers who came after him would have been able to be the first black ballplayer, because they couldnt do what he did. Baseball celebrated its annual Jackie Robinson Day on Monday, with players at all major league games wearing the late Hall of Famers No. 42. Associated PressNorman Berman, who was a Brooklyn Dodgers ballboy during Jackie Robinsons rookie season, celebrates after throwing out a ceremonial first pitch Monday before the start of a baseball game between the Miami Marlins and the Washington Nationals in Miami.

CARLMCDERMOTT CorrespondentLECANTO The Lecanto Panthers took to the gridiron on senior night looking for their first victory in flag football. The Panthers showed great effort, but ran into a very athletic Vanguard team that was just too much, as the Knights put the game away early. Vanguard scored on their first four possessions en route to a 35-0 win that was called at the five-minute mark of the fourth quarter. Panther coach Bob LeCours was proud of his team and with the improvement they have shown throughout the season. You can get frustrated when youre not winning, he said. The girls attitude has been phenomenal and we are getting better every game. The Knights put on a great offensive display in grabbing the victory early. Quarterback Alex Wilhelm put the ball in the air 23 times and completed 17 passes. Jamey Thomas and Haley Wright were her primary targets throughout the contest. Thomas caught four touchdown passes and Wright was the possession receiver, catching seven passes over the middle that she turned into first downs and one touchdown of her own. The Panthers were able to move the ball, completing 11 passes on 20 attempts, with Heather Kemp grabbing four receptions. They also ran the ball effectively, but were not able to punch the ball in. The Panthers had seven first downs in the game. Knights coach John Miller saw his team improve to 7-2 as they ready for their county tournament. We are having a very good season, he said. We have scheduled some very strong teams to make us better. We even traveled to Orlando to play a strong team down there. The Panthers played much better defense in the second half as they held the Knights to one score. Seniors Amanda Pitre and Misty Beckford led a strong defensive effort in shutting down the Knights powerhouse offense for most of the half. One positive note for the Panthers was the 18-0 victory by their junior varsity team. It was the first flag football victory in school history. Junior Brittani Provanzano stepped onto the field for the JV after being a varsity player all season. I think we played very well as a team and kept a very positive attitude throughout the game. I am very proud to be part of Lecantos first victory, Provanzano said. The Panthers play Friday at Crystal River. Associated PressORLANDO Carlos Boozer scored 22 points, Luol Deng added 18 and the Chicago Bulls snapped a two-game losing streak with a 102-84 victory over the Orlando Magic on Monday night. The win, which was the Bulls fifth straight over the Magic, also keeps alive their hopes of catching of Atlanta for the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. They conclude their regular-season schedule at home Wednesday against Washington. Chicago needs to win that game and for Atlanta to split or lose their final two. Tobias Harris led Orlando with 20 points, and Maurice Harkless added 16. The Magic finish just 12-29 at home, their fewest victories in Orlando since they were 11-30 during the 2003-04 season. Orlando wraps up its schedule Wednesday in Miami.Heat 96, Cavaliers 95CLEVELAND LeBron James watched from the bench in street clothes as Norris Cole stripped Kyrie Irving of the ball with 2.2 seconds left to give the Miami Heat, resting most of their top players for the playoffs, a 96-95 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Cole finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists. But it was his only steal on Clevelands final possession that sealed it. Chris Bosh and Mario Chalmers joined James on the bench while Dwyane Wade, Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem stayed back in Miami with minor injuries.Bobcats 106, Knicks 95CHARLOTTE, N.C. Gerald Henderson scored 27 points, Kemba Walker had 23 points and a career-high 13 assists and the Charlotte Bobcats defeated a New York Knicks team playing without Carmelo Anthony and a few others 106-95. The victory was the second straight for the Bobcats, who pulled into a tie with Orlando for the worst record in the league. The Knicks played only seven players, resting Anthony and others after wrapping up the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference. Tyson Chandler, J.R. Smith, Raymond Felton, Amare Stoudemire, Marcus Camby and Kenyon Martin also did not play. Chris Copeland led the Knicks with 32 points.Pistons 109, 76ers 101AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Greg Monroe had 27 points and 16 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons made the most of their home finale by beating the Philadelphia 76ers 109-101. For both teams, the game was overshadowed by uncertainty off the court. Doug Collins is on his way out as Philadelphias coach, and Pistons owner Tom Gores remained noncommittal before the game on the status of team president Joe Dumars and coach Lawrence Frank. Detroit outscored the 76ers 33-21 in the third quarter.Nets 106, Wizards 101NEW YORK Andray Blatche led a bevy of Brooklyn bench players with 20 points and 11 rebounds the Nets erased an early 17-point deficit to beat the Washington Wizards 106-101. Kris Humphries, who was the teams original starting power forward at the beginning of the season before falling out of the rotation, added 20 points and nine boards for Brooklyn. Mirza Teletovic added 14 points and MarShon Brooks chipped in 12 for the Nets, who will host Detroit on Wednesday night before they open up at home in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Nets reserve rookie Toko Shengelia, who has played only 3:42 all season, saw 25 minutes. After averaging 1.1 points and 0.7 rebounds in 18 games, Shengelia finished with 11 points and 13 rebounds.Jazz 96, Timberwolves 80MINNEAPOLIS Al Jefferson had 22 points and eight rebounds to help Utah keep its playoff hopes alive with a 96-80 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Mo Williams had 15 points and seven assists for the Jazz, who needed a win to avoid being eliminated in the Western Conference playoff race. The Jazz still need to win at Memphis on Wednesday and for the Los Angeles Lakers to lose at home against Houston that night to get into the playoffs. They own the tiebreaker after beating the Lakers two out of three times this season. Derrick Williams had 18 points and six rebounds for the Timberwolves.Thunder 104, Kings 95OKLAHOMA CITY Kevin Durant scored 29 points, Russell Westbrook had 21 before getting ejected in the final 3 minutes and the Oklahoma City Thunder clinched the top seed in the Western Conference playoffs by beating the Sacramento Kings 104-95. Durant hit a 3-pointer and Westbrook set up Serge Ibaka for a two-handed slam during a string of 11 straight Thunder points midway through the third quarter that stretched the lead to 75-51. Sacramento was able to cut the deficit to 11 early in the fourth quarter and force coach Scott Brooks to put Durant and Westbrook back in and close out the game.Grizzlies 103, Mavericks 97DALLAS Keyon Dooling scored 13 points, including a go-ahead 3-pointer before consecutive baskets by Ed Davis, and the Memphis Grizzlies rallied to keep alive their chance of hosting a firstround playoff series with a 103-97 victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Jerryd Bayless had 19 points and the Grizzlies reserves accounted for 64 points all 35 in the decisive fourth quarter. Dirk Nowitzki had 26 points for Dallas. The Mavericks (40-41) already knew they were going to miss the playoffs for the first time in 13 seasons. Now they have to win their season finale to avoid a losing record.Nuggets 112, Bucks 111MILWAUKEE Ty Lawson scored 26 points, including a jumper in the lane with 9.3 seconds left, as the Denver Nuggets clinched home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs with a 112-111 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Associated PressChicagos Carlos Boozer makes a move to the basket Monday past Orlandos Nikola Vucevic during the first half in Orlando. High school FLAG FOOTBALL Citrus blanks Pirates JUSTINPLANTE CorrespondentINVERNESS Rivalries always pique the interest of the general public, and such was the case Monday night at the Citrus Bowl, as the Crystal River High School flag football team squared off against cross-county rival Citrus High School in a rematch from earlier in the season. And while rivalry games give way to heated arguments and flaring tempers, they can also help produce some of the best games of the season, as the Lady Pirates and Lady Canes proved on Monday. Both offenses have proven throughout the season they can score, with both posting multiple games of 20 or more points, but it was the defenses that ruled the day. Crystal River, after posting a 20-6 win over the Lady Canes earlier in the season, committed three turnovers and were stopped on a late fourth and goal, as they saw their perfect season come to a close, losing to Citrus 7-0. It was clear early on this game was going to be much different than the first. Throughout the entire first half, neither team seemed to find their footing offensively. Both defenses made it a point to shut down the middle of the field, which forced both sides to throw deep to the outside, making it almost impossible to sustain long drives. Crystal Rivers Jamie Jaster put on a show at defensive end, stopping everything that came her way. When Citrus tried to cut to the outside with speedster Decaysha Miller, Jaster shut her down, and when the Lady Canes attempted to pass, Jaster found a way to disrupt the timing, despite the quarterback rotation Citrus was using. Citrus defense was just as relentless, with safety Peyton Wells the focal point in the stifling pass defense. Citrus success can be attributed to an added emphasis on one of the basics of the game flag pulling. Weve been working on flag pulling, Citrus assistant coach Darrin Johnson said. The games weve lost this year can all be tacked up to not getting that job done. We would get into position, and try to make the play, but they just werent getting pulls. So weve been working on that, especially with Crystal River being as fast as a team as they are. Citrus offensive keys remained just as simple try to change up the pace and catch Crystal River off guard. They did this mainly by switching out three separate quarterbacks Sam Kanawall, Bethany Smith and Alyssa Nathan. And while nothing was happening on offense in the first half, the change of pace helped spur a 40-yard touchdown pass from Nathan to receiver Paige Antonelli midway through the third quarter. After a long Pirate drive resulted in an interception deep in Citrus territory, Jamie Jaster willed her way in front of Bethany Smiths quick pitch to teammate Decaysha Miller, giving the Pirates the ball in good field position, with plenty of time left on the clock. After what looked like a tying score by receiver Jasmyne Eason was ruled out of bounds, the Lady Pirates were staring down a fourth and goal. But Peyton Wells and the Citrus defense prevailed. This game was great because there werent too many mistakes made, coach Johnson said. We had a scare there when Alyssa went out, but Bethany jumped in and played great. Her pass on fourth down to Lindsay (Connors) basically clinched the game for us. But this was a great game.

Heartburn helper Implanted bracelet treats chronic malady MARILYNNMARCHIONE AP chief medical writerAtiny magnetic bracelet implanted at the base of the throat is greatly improving life for some people with chronic heartburn who need more help than medicine can give them. Its a novel way to treat severe acid reflux, which plagues millions of Americans and can raise their risk for more serious health problems. It happens when a weak muscle doesnt close after swallowing as it should. That lets stomach juices splash back into the throat. Drugs like Nexium and Prilosec reduce acid. But they dont fix the underlying problem, called GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease. Rodd Foster had it so bad he used to sleep sitting up to keep his dinner down. Tricia Carr worried she would develop complications like the one that killed her mother. Both Californians got help from the new device, approved a year ago by the federal Food and Drug Administration and also sold in Europe. The treatment was life-changing, said Foster, a 61-year-old plumbing contractor from Canyon Country, Calif. Its been 30 years since Ive been able to eat normally and now I can eat anything anytime. The Linx device, made by Torax Medical Inc., of St. Paul, Minn., is a ring of titanium beads with magnets inside. Doctors place it around the weak muscle at the base of the esophagus in a half-hour operation using a scope and keyhole incisions in the belly. The ring reinforces the weak muscle to keep it closed, yet is flexible and expands to let food pass when someone swallows. The ring comes in multiple sizes; it is about a halfinch in diameter and expands to about 1.5 inches. People dont feel it once it is implanted. The device costs $5,000; the operation can run $12,000 to $20,000 depending on hospital charges, said Dr. John Lipham, a surgeon who offers it at the University of Southern California and at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach. Many insurers cover it for patients who are not helped enough by antacid medicines. It is a clever device, said another doctor who has used it Dr. Donald Castell, a gastroenterologist at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. The magnets just bolster a little bit the pressure that is normally there and help seal off the stomach juices, he said. Both doctors consult for Torax. A third expert with no financial ties to the company Dr. Daniel DeMarco of Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas said early results with the device have been very impressive. But only time will tell if they hold up for many years, he said. As many as 20 million Americans have GERD. Its not just a quality-oflife issue: Chronic acid reflux can raise the risk of a condition called Barretts esophagus, which in turn can raise the risk of throat cancer. No one doubts thatHEALTH& LIFE We have all heard a lot about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in the past 40 years, and for the most part, a PTSD diagnosis has been associated with those returning from combat or those involved in a horrific tragedy and surviving. But oncologists have known for years that PTSD can also be associated with many of our patients after a diagnosis of cancer. Now, a new study supports this observation in those diagnosed with breast cancer. Following a diagnosis of breast cancer, nearly one-quarter of women report symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder PTSD a common reaction See BENNETT / Page C3 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Inflammatory breast cancer Isaw a patient about six months ago, a 70year-old female. She noticed redness around her breast. Initially, it was thought to be an infection, but when it persisted, her doctor biopsied it and found inflammatory breast cancer. One of my regular readers also wrote me an email asking me to explain inflammatory breast cancer. Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare form of breast cancer. The cancer gets its name because the symptoms are like those of mastitis (inflammation of the breast) and include redness, tenderness, swelling and pain in the breast. However, unlike mastitis, inflammatory breast cancer does not improve Erectile dysfunction is something heavily advertised on TV. Commercials are constantly telling viewers about the benefit of erectile dysfunction drugs. Around 2007, we started getting some early reports of sudden hearing loss related to the use of erectile dysfunction drugs (EDD). The first reports out in 2007 suggested there were about 28 cases of hearing loss associated with the use of these drugs. Drugs for erectile dysfunction have been out about a decade, and 40 million prescriptions have been written to date worldwide. Half of those were written in the United States. An updated study in 2011 from the United Kingdom cited 47 cases of sudden hearing loss associated with taking the drug. Two-thirds of the time, the Erectile dysfunction drugs and sudden hearing loss Im suffering in week two of an upper respiratory thing Im sure it has a long Latin name. But, since it is viral in nature, I cant get drugs for it. Hence, my emotional woes and feelings of victimization. When I was in my active addiction, I loved being sick. It was a legitimate opportunity to drug-seek and avoid my responsibilities. I could be totally self-absorbed. I could whine and obsess on my symptoms. I could check out of work and spend a day to two, or week if I could work it that way, ministering to my ills and feel sorry for myself. If I worked it right, I could incorporate the kindness and empathy of others into nurturing my warped sense of self-importance. A major part of recovery is learning to grow up. Letting go of my need to be nurtured as an escape for negative circumstances, or using those circumstances to avoid negative emotions has been a huge feat for me.

Hes director of the Barretts esophagus program at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. Antacids didnt work for Carr, a 54-year-old nurse. Youre having a wonderful time and all of a sudden it hurts. Its horrible, she said. Her mother had a serious complication from chronic reflux lung scarring that led to her death. So I really was anxious about having my GERD fixed, Carr said. Lipham gave a presentation on the device at a staff training session at Hoag, the Newport Beach hospital where Carr works. After his talk I went right over to him and said, I need one of those things, she said. The device, which she received in October at the USC hospital in Los Angeles, completely fixed it immediately, she said of her reflux. A side benefit: She eats more slowly and chews her food more to avoid swallowing problems that some people have right after surgery. And she said that has helped her drop 10 pounds. Lipham and other doctors recently published a study of the device in 100 patients in the New England Journal of Medicine. All had had reflux for at least 10 years and were getting worse despite using antacids. After having the magnetic ring implanted, acid measured in their throats greatly decreased. Quality of life improved substantially for 92 percent, and within one year, 86 percent no longer needed acidlowering medicines. The most frequent side effect was difficulty swallowing, which occurred in 68 percent of patients right after surgery. That dropped to 11 percent after one year and 4 percent after three years. Six of the 100 had to have the device removed. In three it was because swallowing problems persisted. Other problems prompted removal in the others. The device is available so far in 24 states, including Florida.Marilynn Marchione can be followed at http:// twitter.com/MMarchione AP .C2TUESDAY, APRIL16, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Bone-graft advances Ithought I would write about a recent journal article that Dr. Robert Brockett, an oral surgeon in Citrus County, sent me for review. He thought it might be interesting to you, my readers. The title of the article is rhBMP-2/ACS Grafts Versus Autogenous Cancellous Marrow Grafts in Large Vertical Defects of the Maxilla: An Unsponsored Randomized Open-Label Clinical Trial. I bet you are real worried at this point. What in the world is he gonna talk about today? I have had so many comments in the past at how easy my column is to understand. They tell me I always put things in laymans terms. Lucky for you, today will be no different. First, know that this is about growing bone for the placement of dental implants. If you are one of those patients who has been told you cannot have implants unless you have a bone graft from the hip, this is your lucky day. This study looked at the results of a number of patients who had grafts from the hip or other large bone in the body, as well as those who had grafts utilizing freeze-dried cadaver bone along with components from the patient. These components form a matrix to hold things together and signal the body to make its own bone. The long and short of it is it is now possible to get similar results to the longdreaded graft from another part of the patients body using this protocol. The reality is this is not such a new protocol. I have actually been involved with many cases where bone was grown in this manner. I have seen great success with it for quite some time. It is important to know that the use of dental implants is no longer controversial. In fact, I would say that a week does not go by I do not see a patient who either has a dental implant or is having one restored. If you were told in the past you were not a candidate for one, I would suggest you revisit it again. You will be surprised what new technologies have come out in the placement and restoration of dental implants. I would like to thank Dr. Brockett for sending this article to me. If weve helped just one of you get an implant when you thought you were not able to ... that is something to celebrate. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa.

Planning for eldercare Today, more than 44 percent of Americans still have one parent living when they reach the age of 60. Chances are you will become responsible for the care of one or more aging parent. Though you might not like to think about it, a day will come when you, or your aging parent, may be faced with reduced mobility, medical problems, loss of independence, or a serious medical crisis. Careful planning now can prevent unnecessary emotional turmoil, anxiety and frustration when that day arrives. Begin this important discussion now, while the aging member of your family is still able to communicate clearly about his or her hopes and desires. Has your elder made any long-term plans for the future? What are these plans? Does he or she want to live at home with assistance, move in with a family member, or live in an assisted-living residence? Which family members does he or she want to assist with long-term care issues? What kind of financial and legal arrangements have already been made? What financial resources are available to pay for elder care? Respect the persons wishes and opinions, even if they are different from your own. If this dialog is difficult, perhaps because of strained family relationships or because the elder is struggling to remain independent, enlist professional help from an attorney, financial planner, physician, or senior services provider. Gather all the important information about yourself or your elder in one place: Social Security, passport and drivers license numbers; financial information; birth certificate; legal papers; insurance information; Medicare and Medicaid numbers; burial plans; doctors and their phone numbers; a list of medications and medical devices; and contact information for relatives and close friends. If a medical emergency or other crisis arises suddenly, you will quickly be able to access this information. Find out about the resources available for seniors in your community, and prepare a plan that will allow you or your elder to live in comfort and receive necessary care and assistance. Resources include family and church members, senior centers, home health care agencies, day care or short-term care facilities, assisted living facilities and local government and charitable agencies and services. Assess the home environment, looking for situations that might present a hazard for an elderly person, such as slippery walkways, steep stairs, poor lighting and heavy doors. It may be necessary to make some alterations to the home, such as installing handrails in the bathtub. Develop a system for regularly checking on the elders well-being, and a way to communicate if there is an emergency. Several legal documents can help you ensure that your wishes regarding health care will be carried out if you become incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself. Consult an attorney or legal aid service for help in preparing these documents so that they are valid in Florida. An Advance Health Care Directive (AHCD) instructs others about your medical care if you become unable to make decisions on your own. It becomes effective only under the circumstances specified in the document. An AHCD allows you to appoint a health care agent (also known as a health care proxy). Your health care agent can be a spouse, family member, close friend or other representative who will make sure your wishes and expectations are met. This person will have legal authority to make decisions regarding your medical care if you are no longer able to speak for yourself. An AHCD also allows you to give written directions about your future health care, life-sustaining medical treatment if you are terminally ill or permanently unconscious, pain relief and organ donation. The AHCD can specify what you want and what you do not want in specific situations. Signing a legal document such as an AHCD does not take any authority away from you. You can override the decisions of your health care agent or change the AHCD as long as you are competent to speak for yourself. Family members can make decisions about your medical care without an AHCD. During a medical crisis however, emotions may run high and family members may not agree on what to do. An AHCD helps to prevent disputes and makes sure your wishes are respected. A Living Will is a legal document that clarifies your wishes regarding whether to use life support systems to prolong your life and when to withhold or withdraw treatment. When you are hospitalized, the hospital keeps your Living Will on file. Give a copy of your Living Will to your physician and keep a copy with your other legal papers, because close family members may not share your views regarding your medical treatment. Durable Power of Attorney is a legal document designating another person to act on your behalf in legal and financial matters. This document can be very important when transferring financial assets or applying for Medicaid (Title 19). A Last Will and Testament is a legal document specifying how you want your assets to be disposed of after your death.

brain has been wired to seek an altered state. Early in recovery (the first 18 months), there is an ongoing struggle between the forces of recovery, a state that is not satisfying for the brain, and the forces of relapse, a state that has instant gratification for the brain. Even minor circumstances, such as a cold, can lead to hourly warfare between the two forces. This is why relapse is so very common during the initial stage of recovery as it doesnt take a tragedy to trigger a brain battle. Often times, its an apparently minor occurrence that leads to a complete breakdown of sobriety. People on the outside of addiction dont understand how fragile recovery is for the first few years. Many addicts in recovery dont understand how fragile the thread of recovery is for them, and when they allow even minor distractions to join their path, major upheavals occur. Unfortunately, the addicted brain knows and loves distractions distractions create a prescription for using. Loved ones, who feel their recovering family member should be all better after a year of clean time, create wonderful distractions. Loved ones can feel trapped or demoted to second-class citizens because of the addicts daily absences for meetings and work with sponsors. They can build disturbances in the recovery path by requesting shifts in priorities, placing an addict in turmoil between two positive forces their recovery versus the relationship. Excuses for disorder and turmoil are many. Second to relationships is health care. Whether the issue is acute or chronic, minor or major, relapse always hovers close to health conditions. Wading through the health care waters is not an easy task for those in recovery. Our brains are always lying in wait to concoct a reason to alter our state of being. What better way than to have a doctor prescribe it? The thin skin of our warped sense of morality can get goosebumps just thinking about a legal way to get loaded! Its vital we have a firm plan for our health care needs that includes our sponsor, a sober support person and a loved one. Our sponsor can help us by challenging the self-centered view of the world we have, and confront our whining and catastrophyzing. A sober support person can help us decide what and how to address significant health issues with our physicians in a way that best supports our recovery. And our loved ones can be freed up to love us, and we them. For, God knows, they need all the freedom they can get when in a relationship with us addicts.

NOTESContinued from Page C2 HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL16, 2013 C3 Sodium intake a risk in developing high blood pressure Q:I have high blood pressure and my doctor told me to reduce my salt intake. How can I best do this? A: The FDA is also trying to help consumers reduce their salt intake and provides the following information: Most Americans consume way too much sodium, with salt (sodium chloride) being the most common form. That can be a serious health hazard, because excess sodium consumption contributes to the development and escalation of high blood pressure, a leading cause of heart disease, kidney disease, and stroke. Research shows that Americans consume on average about 3,300 milligrams (mg) of sodium every day. The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends a reduction of sodium intake to less than 2,300 mg daily. Adults age 51 and older, and people of any age who are African-American or who have high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease should further reduce sodium intake to 1,500 mg daily. This amount meets your essential need for sodium. These groups comprise about half the U.S. population. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently reported children and adolescents consume about the same amount of sodium as adults and also risk developing high blood pressure. The researchers found that kids who consumed the most sodium faced double the risk of having high blood pressure, compared to those who took in less sodium. For overweight or obese children, the risk was more than triple. So, whats a consumer to do? When shopping for food, read food labels and choose foods that are lower in sodium. The Nutrition Facts Label on food and beverage packages lists the Percent Daily Value (%DV) of sodium in one serving of a food, based on 2,400 mg per day. The %DV tells you whether a food contributes a little or a lot to your total daily diet. Foods providing 5%DV or less of sodium per serving are considered low in sodium and foods providing 20%DV or more of sodium per serving are considered high. But remember, all of the nutrition information on the label is based upon one serving of the food and many packaged foods have more than one serving. It is recommended that consumers not exceed 100 percent of the daily value for sodium and those advised to limit intake to 1,500 mg per day should aim for about 65 percent of the daily value. Consumers must also be aware of the sources of sodium in their diet. In a report issued in February 2012, the CDC identified 10 foods as the greatest sources of sodium: breads and rolls. lunch meat, such as deli ham or turkey. pizza. poultry, fresh and processed (much of the raw chicken bought from a store has been injected with a sodium solution). soups. cheeseburgers and other sandwiches. cheese, natural and processed. pasta dishes. meat dishes, such as meat loaf with gravy. snack foods, such as potato chips, pretzels and popcorn. Dont forget to count the amount of sodium in the foods served at your favorite restaurant. Many chain restaurants are also putting the nutritional content of their foods including calories, fats, sodium and sugars on their websites, or its available by asking for it. Richard P Hoffmann, Pharm.D., has been a pharmacist for more than 40 years. Send questions to him at 2960 E. Coventry Court, Hernando, FL 34442. Richard Hoffmann ASK THE PHARMACIST (PTSD), according to a study recently published online in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. In this study, researchers from Columbia University in New York City conducted telephone interviews with 1,139 women with newly diagnosed breast cancer, stages I, II, and III, obtaining a baseline at about two to three months after diagnosis regarding how they felt, with further follow-up at four months after diagnosis, and a second followup at six months after diagnosis. Traumatic stress was measured using an interview tool called the Impact of Events Scale. The researchers found that 23 percent of participants reported symptoms consistent with a diagnosis of PTSD at their baseline interview, 16.5 percent at first follow-up and 12.6 percent at the second follow-up. Persistent PTSD, defined as having PTSD at two consecutive interviews, was observed among 12.1 percent of participants. PTSD was developed by 6.6 percent of participants without PTSD at baseline. And PTSD was associated with: a younger age at diagnosis, being black or being Asian. What this all means is at some point in time, roughly 25 percent of women diagnosed with breast cancer will experience signs and symptoms consistent with PTSD, and we need to look for this in all of our patients. Yes, nearly one-quarter of women newly diagnosed with breast cancer reported symptoms consistent with PTSD shortly after diagnosis, with increased risk among black and Asian women. And this is not the only cancer diagnosis associated with this risk. As physicians, we must look for these changes and symptoms, and treat and refer as needed for care. Dr. C.

BENNETTContinued from Page C1 with antibiotic treatment. This is a very aggressive form of breast cancer and tends to spread outside the breast very quickly. Inflammatory breast cancer progresses rapidly, often in a matter of weeks or months. Since it always involves the skin of the breast, it is treated with chemotherapy first, followed by surgery and radiation therapy to the chest wall. The patient may or may not have a lump in the breast, and so a mammogram may be negative in spite of cancer. Approximately 1 percent to 5 percent of breast cancers can be the inflammatory type. It carries a poorer prognosis than the regular variety of breast cancer. This is because it always involves the skin, and so it is at least stage IIIB (out of a total four stages) at the time of diagnosis. Women with stage III disease have a better prognosis than women with stage IV disease. Among women who have stage III inflammatory breast cancer, about 40 percent survive at least five years after their diagnosis, whereas among women with stage IV inflammatory breast cancer, only about 11 percent survive for at least five years after their diagnosis. For my patient, I did a PET/CT scan and it did not show any evidence of metastatic disease so she has a chance of cure. I started the patient on chemotherapy and she is tolerating the treatment very well. Her redness in the breast has disappeared. This is an excellent sign. She will finish chemotherapy shortly and then will need surgery. She will also need XRT to the breast. Since her cancer was hormone-receptor positive, she will benefit from adjuvant hormone therapy. She will need close follow-up, but I am very optimistic for a good long-term prognosis for her. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

GANDHIContinued from Page C1 HESSContinued from Page C1 hearing loss was within 24 hours of the dose. In 2012, a study of about 200 cases worldwide was reported, most of them occurring in the U.S. because of the propensity of prescriptions in the U.S., and cited a direct correlation to the drug and damage to the inner ear. Of these episodes of hearing loss, one-third remain permanent, one-third are partial hearing loss and one-third are temporary. There are other causes of sudden hearing loss, and they include: head trauma, such as motorcycle or motor vehicle accidents, or assaults; and infections of the inner ear. The most common is a viral type of infection. Also, conditions where a patient is gravely ill and has serious infections that necessitate the use of intravenous antibiotics can cause sudden hearing loss. Men older than 56 were cited most commonly in these studies. Believe it or not, there were even some female patients who were cited in these studies worldwide, as erectile dysfunction drugs are sometimes used for other medical problems. The vast majority of times it was only one ear as well. Half the time the drug was Viagra; generic is sildenafil. The remaining 50 percent of the time it was Cialis, generic is tadalafil; Levitra, generic is vardenafil; and lastly a drug called Revatio. This is a drug used for a condition called pulmonary arterial hypertension. Basically, erectile dysfunction drugs are what they call PDE-5 inhibitors. PDE is the abbreviation for phosphodiesterase. The biological mechanism is that the drug increases the size of blood vessels, thus increasing blood flow to the penis for erectile purposes, but also increasing blood flow to the inner ear, where it engorges and damages the inner ear membrane. A byproduct of nitrous oxide is formed, and nitrous oxide is known to be toxic to the inner ear. Other symptoms associated with sudden hearing loss include tinnitus, or noise in the ear, dizziness, vertigo and loss of balance. But the primary problem is a sudden hearing loss in one ear. As we get older, the chances for hearing loss increase due to age and noise-exposure issues in past experiences, and as I mentioned there are other causes for sudden hearing loss. But clearly what is becoming evident is that your chance for sudden hearing loss doubles if you use erectile dysfunction drugs, and there is a significant chance the hearing loss will be permanent.

It was A Bad Year for Tomatoes out at the Art Center last weekend, as the theater group of volunteer thespians presented a play that portrayed what happens in a small town when a celebrity tries to be incognito. It just doesnt happen. Running weekends through April 21, this is a must-see for those who enjoy lighthearted, fun-filled comedy that presents larger-than-life scenarios with gusto. Call the box office at 352-746-7606 for tickets. Written by John Patrick, it was directed by David Easter, a seasoned awardwinning actor, who, having performed in more than 60 Citrus County productions, is one of the most faithful supporters of theater, his foremost interest. While attempting to get away from the proverbial hustle and bustle of a demanding, stress-filled career as a popular actress, Pam Schreck, as actress Myra Marlowe, seeks out the small New England town of Beaver Haven, to grow tomatoes and write her autobiography. Schrecks mastery of the character Myra is magnificent. She is Myra, a beleaguered actress on the run from a lifestyle that has become increasingly tiresome. She longs for a quiet respite and a chance to be alone and at one with an affinity to the earth. Myra, actress that she is, in desperation for solitude, dons a wig and appears as her demented sister, Sadie, with scissors to cut off heads. Alan Stuart, as Tom Lamont, her faithful agent, though doubtful that she can pull it off, is supportive to a point. A star performer in the former Playhouse 19 production Jesus Christ Superstar, his Art Center shows include Old Wine in a New Bottle. The chemistry between Stuart and Schreck reveals perfect casting that has been the hallmark at the Art Center Theater since its inception. Lovable, yet annoying, star-struck neighbors, though well meaning, captured our hearts each time they appeared as we anticipated their next outlandish effort to offer unwanted assistance to the famous actress. Its Wendy Chesnovitz at her best as the sometimes snooty, sometimes endearing, often inquisitive Cora Gump. Libby Marsh, encouraged by stage manager Jim Wellborn, has returned to the stage after being involved at Stage West in Hernando and as a classroom teacher. She joins in the trios repeated impositions upon Myras quest for solitude. As Reba Harper, her star quality is shinning. Memorable performances by Dolores Elwood come to mind as she performs yet another character to perfection as Willa Mae Wilcox, the mysterious one, who is intrigued by out-of-this-world experiences and, at best, just wants to help Myra. We recall her stellar performances in Moon Over Buffalo, Lost in Yonkers and my personal favorite, Kind Lady. Gary Ammerman, as the slowmoving, slow-talking, slightly dimwitted backwoods handyman Piney, drew giggles line after line, as he hilariously grew to be enamored by the imaginary sister Sadie that Myra construes to ward off the imposing nosy neighbors, including Piney. Although a brief role as the sheriff was accepted by Jim Boyle, a retired psychotherapist, he is a welcome addition to the Art Centers team of players. His New York 1960s and s TV performances included Guiding Light and General Hospital and the film, Love is a Many Splendored Thing. As Myra searches for something real in Beaver Haven, she never imagined the chaos that would unravel as the self-appointed hospitality ladies appear time and again, not to leave out Piney, appearing with an axe to cut wood for the fireplace, who also traps skunks and butchers hogs. Elwood, as Willa Mae, reads palms and champions sances and adds to a most delightful mix of mayhem. Truly a great entertainment venue, a treasured jewel, is the Art Center Theater.

TUESDAY, APRIL16, 2013 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Aristotle said, All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire. At the bridge table, you desire to make or break the contract, using reasoning and various habits hopefully all good. And sometimes you have to go for any chance that you have. In this deal, West has to decide what to do when defending against one no-trump. He leads his fourth-highest diamond. South takes Easts nine with his king and plays the spade queen. West ducks, but is in with his ace at trick three. What should West do now? An aggressive East would have made a threeclub weak jump overcall on the first round. Then South would probably have made a negative double, giving North a headache. The winning action would have been to pass, which would have netted 100 or 300. If East had balanced over one no-trump with a two-club bid, South would presumably have continued with two spades, which would have probably ended down one after the diamondnine lead from East. Who has the diamond jack? It must be South do not be fooled by his falsecard at trick one. East was playing third hand high and the best he could do was the nine. Similarly, South has the diamond ace, giving South 10 high-card points. So, if West leads another diamond, South must take at least nine tricks. The only chance for the defense is to run the clubs. West must shift to his club king and continue with his second club. Here, East and West take one spade and six clubs for down one.

I have an older sibling who has hated the rest of us for the past 45 years. Family gatherings are extremely uncomfortable events. Inappropriate barbs lead to physical fights, young children cry while the adults pretend nothing is amiss, family members spy on one another, there is lots of back-stabbing, and some relatives are ignored while others are fawned over. My mother allows her adult children to treat one another like animals and refuses to get involved in the chaos. I am tired of this and will no longer let my children witness these destructive behaviors. Please let other parents know they should work to make their home a welcoming and loving environment. Is there anything I can do to counteract the hostility at these gatherings? Too Old for Hate Dear Too Old: You cannot force your parents and siblings to behave in a civilized manner. The pattern in your family seems fairly well set, and no one else has much interest in changing it. You are smart to realize that your choice is to stay or leave. Calmly explain to your family why you are walking out (or not attending), and make no apologies. We commend you for recognizing this dysfunction and not transmitting it to your children. But please consider letting the children see some of the relatives one-onone, under your supervision. Kids are extremely tolerant of aberrant behavior in family members and can understand this is how Grandma is without emulating her. Dear Annie: Michael and I are a young gay couple pondering marriage. Gay marriage is not performed in our state, and we realize it would not be recognized here. Its the principle of the thing. A courthouse venue seems the most feasible, and I am wondering whom to invite. Michaels parents and siblings would most certainly be there, but I dont know what to do about my side. I have no siblings, and my parents are divorced. Mom is fully supportive, but my father doesnt know Im gay. I would prefer not telling him in order to avoid a conflict. My father would probably never find out that Michael and I are married if I dont tell him myself. But if he did learn about it, hed be upset. Then again, hed also be upset to learn that Im getting married. Should I tell him? Also, because my guest list is limited, should I invite best friends? A Ring on It Dear Ring: We think you should tell your father, not only because keeping secrets can erode relationships, but also because you should not be hiding who you are. If you are mature enough to marry, its time to handle the fallout from your father. As for your guest list, invite those people you want to have as witnesses to your union, provided you can afford to do so. Dear Annie: This is a response to Feeling the Void in Indiana. It was pretty brazen of him to claim to speak for all men when he said we feel incomplete without sex. Ill admit that is true for a lot of men, but certainly not all. Im a healthy 30-year-old man with all the normal biological urges. I also havent been in a romantic relationship in years and am completely sexually inactive and I feel fine about it. Thats because I put my energy into other things like working out and enjoying outdoor activities. And I have a few friends who are as OK without sex as I am. Sex is not the be-all and end-all of human existence. As a last note, any man who cheats on his wife or girlfriend is a cad, whatever feeble excuses he comes up with.
