Pauline Barber, who lives in the Inverness Highlands, is in her 80s, as are several of her neighbors. Im handicapped and use a cane, and I know my capabilities, and I know its not going to work, she said concerning the 96and 64-gallon containers that Waste Management will be delivering to every Inverness city resident beginning next week. Even though the containers have handles and wheels, Barber said she fears she wont be able to maneuver them. My driveway is on a slant, she said. Even with my smaller garbage can, I have trouble pushing or pulling it. When I have something thats heavy, like kitty litter, I put it in my car and drive to the end of my driveway to set out the bag. She said if she and her elderly neighbors are concerned, then there are certainly other elderly or disabled city residents who also have similar fears, especially because this program doesnt have an opt-out provision. What are we supposed to do? she asked. Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said prior to implementing the new program, city staff and representatives from Waste Management discussed the demographics of city residents, including age, mobility and dexterity. The program is used in hundreds or thousands of large and small communities across America, so its not new, DiGiovanni said. We also expected to hear that people have concerns. The carts are not cumbersome and are designed for balance and to Inverness to address recycling concerns Elderly and disabled residents worry that new waste receptacles might be too hard to move See RECYCLING / Page A2 B ROOKEP ERRY For the ChronicleI n an effort to promote healthier lifestyles in children, the United Way of Citrus County is sponsoring a Kids Triathlon, open for families with children ages 5 to 15. United Way of Citrus County board member Linda VanAllen had the idea to create the event in order to get younger people to start exercising in a fun way; triathlons are common fitness competitions for athletes of all ages, so why not get an early start? We are all very excited about this, VanAllen said. We feel like getting kids up and out of the house to get moving is important to work toward a healthier lifestyle. B ROOKEP ERRY For the ChronicleNow that her training wheels are off, 7-yearold Kayla Duncan is ready to take on her first-ever triathlon. The Inverness resident will be competing in the junior division of the Kids Triathlon at Whispering Pines Park on May 11. Shes very competitive, her father, Chris Duncan, said. This is going to be great for her. Mr. Duncan found out about the race through family friend Linda VanAllen and soon after, registered his daughter for the event. Kayla loves being active. Shes been riding her four-wheeler since she was 5 and she just started riding dirt bikes at her grandmothers house. Her interest in M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Citrus Memorial Health System has rolled out a new website that officials hope will expand the hospitals market share. CMHS spokeswoman Katie Mehl said the new site updates the old one. To view it, go to www.citrusmh.com. Mehl told the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation at its meeting Monday that research showed 80 percent of Internet users are looking for health care information. Many people have a smartphone that allows Internet access and the hospitals old site wasnt available by smartphone. Our new website is mobile-friendly, she said. She said she received feedback and suggestions from a focus group, which pointed out the difficulty of going from one department to another, and back to the home page. They hated our navigation, she said. The new site allows for easier navigation. It also includes photos of actual hospital staffers, such as doctors and nurses. Another big change: The hospitals phone number and directions are at the top of the home page rather than the bottom. Mehl said the hospital also has a presence on Twitter and Facebook.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Several groups on Monday criticized language in an elections bill that they say would make it more difficult for some minority, disabled and elderly voters to cast ballots. A provision in the wideranging bill wouldnt allow voters to use assistants to cast ballots if they didnt previously know them. Also, nobody could assist more than 10 voters per election. That means people who cant read English, are blind, have a disability or have trouble voting for any other reason wouldnt be able to ask for help from trained volunteers at the polls unless they already know them. This is again not about whats best for Floridas elections, but its politicians getting in the way of solutions for democracy, said Gihan Perera, executive director of Florida New Majority, a group that advocates for minorities. Lawmakers are considering wide-ranging changes to Floridas election laws in the wake of problems with long lines and counting delays in the 2012 election. That follows changes that the Republican-led Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott made in 2011 cutting the number of early voting days, taking away the option of early voting on the Sunday before the election and making it more difficult for people whove recently moved to vote with a regular ballot. Democrats and civil rights groups accused Republicans of making those changes in an effort to restrict the votes of minorities and younger people who tend to support Democratic candidates. After the 2012 election and the national criticism that followed, Republicans are now proposing several changes they say will make voting easier, such as allowing more early voting days and polling locations. Counties also will have the option of conducting early voting the Sunday before the election, when many black churches organize Souls to the Polls voting drives. But voting wont be easier for people who cant read English or have a disability that requires them to need help at the polls, said Perera, who was joined on a news conference call with representatives from the NAACP the civil rights group Advancement Project, a union that represents service workers and the Florida Immigrant Coalition. The language was placed in the bill by Republican Sen. Jack Latvala of Palm Harbor, chairman of the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee. The groups said trained voting assistants helped thousands of people vote in the last election, and the demand for help in some communities, such as Haitian-American neighborhoods, exceeded the ability to provide it. The Latvala amendment is only the latest in a long history of Florida policies that make it harder to vote, said Katherine CullitonGonzalez, Advancement Projects director of voter protection. Theyve been getting worse over time. She said Desiline Victor, the 102-year-old Miami woman who President Barack Obama pointed out as a symbol of early voting obstacles in his State of the Union address, used an assistant when she voted. dirt bikes isnt surprising considering her dad won a state championship in Arkansas in the sport. The girl also has a several years of swimming under her belt and practices her running skills on the Inverness Primary School playground. Really, Im excited for the biking, Kayla said. I just learned how to ride my bike; Im really good at swimming, too. Hoping the triathlon is an annual event, Chris Duncan would encourage any active child to participate. He agrees that the individual aspect of the race puts out a different experience for those used to participating in team sports, which is a good thing. With the lengths they have set up, I think its very do-able for the kids, he said. I think its a great thing for kids to get involved with something of that nature. Im really looking forward to it. The event is USA Triathlon-approved and will take place at Whispering Pines Park on Saturday, May 11. There will be three age divisions and age groups will then be split up within them: the junior division, which includes ages 5 to 10, will be required to swim three laps, bike 1.25 miles, and run half a mile. The senior division, ages 11 to 15, will swim six laps, bike 3 miles and run 1 mile. The option for a parent to compete with their child is available; for that division there will be no placement awards, just finishers medals and the events will be the same length as the junior division. In addition to the swimming, biking and running, the park will have music and other entertainment, fun family activities, drawings and prizes, and the sheriffs office will be there showing off some of equipment. Money raised from the race will go toward supporting United Way initiatives in the county. We want to help the community as a whole, United Way of Citrus County President Amy Meek said. We can bring about real, lasting change by providing and utilizing solutions to impact peoples lives. Some of these initiatives include financial literacy workshops, Learn to Earn training, and supporting healthier choices and education assistance. Registration for the event is $25. Each participant will receive an event T-shirt and a finishers medal. Visit www. CitrusKidsTri.com for more information and a printable mail-in application. If interested in being a sponsor, call the United Way of Citrus County at 352-7955483, or visit www.citrusunitedway.org. Deadline to register is May 8. Whats great about the race, number one, is that we are introducing kids to athletics, and number two, this is something they could do forever. Adults participate in triathlons at all stages of life, Meek said. We are exposing them to a healthy experience. R EBECCA M ARTIN Special to the ChronicleFitness Challengers this year said they were really motivated to get moving after the winter months, and it turned out to be a lot of fun. The 2013 Community-Wide Fitness Challenge engaged 300 participants on 40 teams. On post-Challenge evaluations, they detailed achievements and benefits, including health improvements and just plain having fun. More than 96 percent said they would participate again next year. The Challenge ran for six weeks in February and March. Teams competed in different categories, choosing among a number of physical activities to earn challenge points. Nearly all said they think the Fitness Challenge should be run again next year, and most said they would participate again. Here are the highlights of their evaluations: The personal benefits Most respondents indicated that, in addition to having fun, they had achieved several health and well-being benefits from participating in the Fitness Challenge. 87 percent said they improved their overall health/ fitness. 52 percent said they lost some weight (and others said their weight stayed the same but their clothes were looser). 27 percent said they lowered their blood pressure through exercise. 37 percent said they made new friends, up from last time. Interestingly, many reported improvements in sleep, stress and mood due to exercise: 40 percent said they were able to sleep better. 42 percent said they had lower stress level. 44 percent reported improved moods. All these improvements are key to lowering risk for heart disease, Citrus Countys No.1 killer of both men and women. The fitness challengers Participants this year were mostly female 80 percent and there again were family groups, as well as groups of friends, co-workers, club members and neighbors united by hobbies. About 36 percent of this years participants were ages 41 through 60, consistent with the nationwide baby-boomer concern about fitness and health. And reflecting the countys active, older demographic, more than 48 percent of challengers were age 61 or older, including 23 percent older than 70. Comments These comments are typical of the many seen on challengers evaluations: Enjoyed the jump start; the challenge is a great motivation to get some exercise every day. Im aware that the less I do, the less I can do; and the more I do, the more I can do. Accountability is the key: I didnt want to let my team down, and I didnt let myself down. I had a barrel of fun, and always feel emotionally much better after exercising. Setting goals helped us all achieve more; this was a challenge all levels could meet. Group exercise helps you make new friends; social activity is important, especially to widows and others who are alone. Its better than TV or a bar.The bottom line Its clear from their evaluations that this years fitness challengers considered their participation a positive experience. Congratulations to everyone who took part. Thanks also to the groups and organizations that supported this years activities in so many ways, including support of workplace teams to participate. A special thank-you goes to the Citrus County Chronicle, which published team scores each week during the Community-Wide Fitness Challenge and hosted a blog. WinnersCongratulations to the 40 teams and 300 individuals who participated in the CommunityWide Fitness Challenge of 2013. They spent the six weeks of this years Challenge walking, jogging, swimming, biking, kayaking, working out, skating, playing ball and more to improve their physical fitness. Teams joined one of two tracks, either step-counting or minutes-of-activity, in one of three fitness level categories.

We ask that people try the cart before deciding it wont work, he said. Larry Dalla Betta, Waste Management government affairs manager, said the trend in the industry is moving toward full automation using the wheeled carts. More than 350,000 residents of the Miami-Dade area use the carts, as well as residents of Collier County. Brevard and Hillsborough counties are heading toward carts as well, Dalla Betta said. Theyre not heavy at all; they just look daunting, he said. We made a video in Brevard County of elderly people using the carts and showing that theyre very easy to maneuver. Still, we understand peoples concerns.

A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS S unshine Arnold of the University of Florida Child Protection Team and of Jessies Place had to thank Deputy Nick Hesse for his valiant effort in saving a baby whose life was nearly snuffed out by an accused child abuser. Arnold said Hesse went to the residence to conduct a wellbeing check, but was met by a less-than-cooperative resident. However, instead of just turning around and leaving, he lingered until he heard the child cry then he sprang into action. The starving child was found squirreled away in a chilled, filthy, diaper-riddled room and frozen in a fetal position, according to a report by Citrus County Sheriffs Office. The childs mother is facing aggravated child abuse charges. Monday, Hesse and others honored law enforcement officers, victim rights advocates and court officers who go above and beyond the call of duty to stand up for victims of crime. The event also kicked off National Crime Victims Rights Week in the county. The audience got to hear a heartrending story of the featured speaker, Cara Meeks, a resilient survivor of a kidnapping and childhood sexual abuse. A solemn Sheriff Jeff Dawsy reassured victims that law enforcement is on their side. My pledge is we will not forget the people who sit in front of us. I hope we have learned from your tragedies and hope to do a better job with future victims, Dawsy told the audience. Assistant State Attorney Rich Buxman, who is also head of the Citrus office, said criminals are finding new and innovative methods to further their enterprise, but that his office is up to the challenge by forging partnerships with advocates and law enforcement. However, it was keynote speaker Meeks who shared the emotional story of her abduction and assault as an 8-year-old by a meter reader. She had the audience in tears as she described her journey from being victimized to dedicating her life to helping the abused, speaking for them when they cant and spreading awareness about how to triumph over abuse. Meeks said her parents always believed her and supported her, which aided her in her odyssey to become a survivor. Her mantra these days is live, laugh and love. Others honored for going far and beyond the call of duty include: CCSO Sgt. Jerry Dixon, Detective Brian Melhado and Buxman. Shannon Boles, a victims rights advocate with the state attorneys office, emceed the event. Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline.com. Around the STATE Hernando Fire consumes barbecue business A 200-square-foot barbecue-business trailer was declared a total loss after being consumed by a fire Friday, according to Citrus County Sheriffs Fire Rescue. According to officials, a call came into dispatch about a camper fire at 4:30 p.m. Rescue crews responded to the area of County Road 486 and Railroad Way in Hernando. The camper was being used to sell barbecue, and officials believe the probable cause of the blaze was an electrical short. Fire Rescue said the fire was not suspicious and the trailer was a total loss. Units from Hernando, Kensington and Pine Ridge worked the call. No other damage was caused by the fire and there were no injuries. Citrus County Seniors sought for graduation section The Chronicle wants to include graduating homeschooled seniors from Citrus County in the upcoming graduation tab for 2013. Also welcome are graduating seniors from out-ofcounty schools who reside in Citrus County. Send the graduates name and a photo to the Chronicle Attn: Cindy Connolly, 1624 N. Meadowcrest Blvd., Crystal River, FL 34429; or email cconnolly@chronicle online.com no later than Friday, April 26, with the photo as an attachment. Information and photos can also be dropped off at the Meadowcrest office in Crystal River. TallahasseeGroup faults bill on voter emails The First Amendment Foundation is criticizing a proposal this legislative session that would exempt voters email addresses from the states public record law. Foundation President Barbara Petersen on Monday wrote letters to House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz. The exemption bill (HB 249/SB 1260) could be passed this week. She said if the exemption passes, it will allow public officials to hide who theyre communicating with if those people are registered voters. But proponents of the bill say releasing email addresses could lead to identity theft and voter fraud. Bonita Springs Roadside animal attraction closes One of the last Old Florida-style roadside animal attractions in the state has closed its doors to the public. Wonder Gardens in Bonita Springs closed for good on Sunday. Lester Piper started the park in 1936 with panther cubs, alligators and snakes. Later, when the menagerie was owned by Pipers grandson David Piper, it claimed to have the largest crocodile in captivity in the world Big Joe was more than 1,200 pounds. But David Piper was diagnosed with an inoperable tumor and decided to close the park and sell the land and all of the animals. On Monday, Piper said he will call zoos and collectors interested in his animals and artifacts. From Staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Low gas prices help CCSO fuel budget P AT F AHERTY Staff writerThis year could set a record for the earliest ending date of high seasonal gas prices. The U.S. Energy Information Administration announced Monday average gas prices fell by 24 cents a gallon between Feb. 25 and April 15. And if the average price does not rise above $3.78 per gallon again this season, the 2013 seasonal price increase will have the earliest ending date since 1991. Traditionally, high pump prices continue through May and decline for the summer driving season. Pump prices did the exact opposite of what was forecast at the start of the year, said AAA spokeswoman Jessica Brady. Instead of reaching a peak price, gas prices dropped to about 40 cents less than they were this time last year. In addition to regular motorists, current lower fuel prices benefit the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. It is not unusual to see a sheriff patrol car filling up at a local station. Spokeswoman Heather Yates explained the fuel budgeting process is quite detailed. We begin working on our sheriffs office budget shortly after the new fiscal year begins, she said. For example, our fiscal year runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30. So, in October of last year, we started working on our budget for FY 2014. Our finance director sets the budget amount for the cost per gallon for fuel. This figure is based on historical data and research on market trends, cost per barrel, etc. Currently, fuel is budgeted at $3.80 a gallon. If we discover the budget was set too high, any unused funds are returned to the county at the end of the year. When fuel prices began rising a couple of years ago, the sheriff put together a fuel task force that studied ways to save gas during day-to-day operations, Yates said.Since that time, we have done an excellent job at conserving fuel and deputies are very aware of how fuel prices impact our budget. They do not leave their cars running on calls and try to get gas at the cheapest locations. They are issued Wright Express cards, which enables all taxes to be taken off of our fuel prices immediately. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com. We will not forget A.B. SIDIBE /Chronicle Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy speaks Monday at an event to kick off Crime Victims Rights Week in the Board of County Commissioners chambers. Event remembers crime victims and offers kudos Scott signs education bill UF to offer online degrees Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Monday signed into law a sweeping education bill that rolls back graduation standards adopted just three years ago. The far-reaching measure also sets the stage for the University of Florida to take the lead in online education in the state. The states most prestigious university would gain the right to offer bachelor degrees completely online. Scott predicted the measure would transform education and help high school graduates go down a pathway leading to a job. This legislation will help us take a giant step forward, Scott said. The measure was passed overwhelmingly by the Florida Legislature and included top priorities of both Senate President Don Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weatherford. The law (SB 1076) makes changes to everything from testing requirements to the addition of a financial literacy requirement for high school students to learn about credit cards, debt and identity theft. The main part of the legislation allows students to graduate from high school even if they dont complete tough classes in both math and science. Legislators in 2010 raised the states graduation requirements by adding Algebra II and science courses such as chemistry and physics. The goal was to align high school standards to the types of skills needed to attract high-wage jobs in the state. But the law Scott signed removes those requirements, which is a position backed by school superintendents. Instead, collegebound students could opt to take tougher courses and earn a high school diploma that includes a scholar designation. Students also would be allowed to take career education courses or enroll in work-related internships. Supporters of the measure insisted they were redesigning high school standards to give options to students who may not be interested in pursuing a college degree. The danger in the previous legislation was that it would drive more students away from high school than drawing them to success, said Orange County school superintendent Barbara Jenkins. Some of those courses ... were just a little bit beyond what some of our students will need in order to be successful. Students who entered the ninth grade this past school year will still be required to pass Algebra II to graduate. State set to gain water quality control C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerThe state will take back its authority to determine water quality this week, but some environmental groups suspect the move will lead to more algae blooms. On Wednesday, Senate Bill 1808 relating to excess nitrogen levels in water and phosphorus pollution sponsored by state Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness will be up for a final vote before the Florida Senate. The House companion bill, House Bill 7115, has passed its committees of reference and awaits a hearing before the entire House of Representatives on the floor. The bills direct the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to develop numeric nutrient criteria nitrogen and phosphorus levels for water bodies not covered by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards. This has been a work in progress for several years, Dean said. As the chairman of the Senate Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation, I am pleased to have passed this bill which implements this agreement. I look forward to the continuing protection and restoration of Floridas waterways. Dean sponsored legislation last year establishing the states right to set up its own scientific criteria for its water bodies because federal standards, adopted in 2010, would hold Floridas drainage canals to the same water quality standards as the states lakes and rivers. Many industries and businesses opposed the higher standards as too costly, raising expenses that would be passed to consumers. The Florida Farm Bureau Federation has taken the position that federal standards were imposed only on Florida and were not scientifically sound. However, environmental groups that see the states reduced criteria resulting in more toxic algae blooms staged protests last week in several cities throughout the state. An Inverness-based organization also opposes the bill. Nitrogen is probably the biggest problem in our waters, said Al Grubman, one of the directors of TOO FAR, a grassroots group focused on improving water quality. To set standards lower than the federal governments and not give this the priority it needs is just an absolute shame. It is just so much more important to Florida than probably anywhere else. And we dont take it seriously. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at cvanormer@chronicle online.com. My pledge is we will not forget the people who sit in front of us. I hope we have learned from your tragedies and hope to do a better job with future victims. Jeff Dawsy Citrus County sheriff.

Birthday Although your material prospects look encouraging, this doesnt mean that you wont experience problems during coming months. Be prepared to take the good with the bad. Taurus (April 20-May 20) People whose work you oversee will likely require some skillful management. Their production could suffer if they are not given proper guidance. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Taking a risk on an unpredictable situation could be an exercise in futility. This might be one of those days when even sure things are difficult to achieve. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Rather than respond in kind, make an effort to be affectionate with your special someone if, for no reason, he or she is a bit on the cranky side. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If you hope to really get things done, youll have to be industrious. If you neglect your responsibilities, matters will only get worse. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If your credit cards are too accessible, there is a strong possibility that you will waste your money on extravagances. Better lock up your wallet. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Should you have to deal with a surly, impossible to please individual, dont blame yourself. You didnt fail, he or she did. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you feel impelled to do something for another, do it out of the goodness of your heart and not because youre angling for a reward. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Watch out, because theres a strong possibility you might spend funds that will be needed in the future. Opting for instant gratification could be your downfall. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be mindful of whom you talk to when socializing. Dont squander all your attention on a hot shot who doesnt give a hoot about you or anyone else. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Dont get into a situation similar to one that has caused you all kinds of problems in the past. Remember the hard lessons youve learned. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Just because you know the other party well is no reason to ignore the details in a joint agreement. Leave no reason for problems to develop down the line. Aries (March 21-April 19) Your associates will not be manipulated if they dont like the way you want to handle a project. Listen to and implement their ideas.

Witherspoons case was scheduled for a Monday morning hearing, but it was reset for May 22. She was arrested Friday. The Oscar-winning actress released a statement late Sunday apologizing for her behavior when her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth was arrested and accused of driving under the influence of alcohol. Toth also had a hearing set for Monday, but it was rescheduled for May 23. The actress didnt appear in court. She was in New York on Sunday night attending the premiere of her new movie Mud. She posed for cameras on the red carpet but did not stop to talk to reporters. Do you know my name? Witherspoon is quoted as saying in a state troopers report of the early Friday incident. She also said: Youre about to find out who I am and Youre about to be on national news, according to the report. I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said, Witherspoon said. Hills tax evasion sentencing delayed NEWARK, N.J. A federal judge postponed Lauryn Hills tax evasion sentencing on Monday but not before scolding the eight-time Grammy-winning singer for reneging on a promise to make restitution by now. Hill pleaded guilty last year to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. At that time, her attorney said she would pay restitution by the time of her sentencing. It was revealed Monday in court that Hill has paid $50,000 of a total of $554,000. U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo criticized her for relying on the promise of a recording contract to pay the tax bill. This is not someone who stands before the court penniless, Arleo said to Hills attorney, Nathan Hochman This is a criminal matter. Actions speak louder than words, and there has been no effort here to pay these taxes. The reclusive singer didnt speak during the proceeding and left the court without commenting. Arleo rescheduled the sentencing for May 6. Summitts life chronicled in Pat XONEW YORK Pat Summitt smiled, laughed and shook her head at times. The Hall of Fame coach, who has early onset dementia, was part of the audience watching a screening of a documentary about her career, Pat XO. Its a wonderful film and they did a great job with it, Summitt told The Associated Press. It was really incredible to see all those people share their stories. The show is part of ESPN Films Nine for IX documentary series. It debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday and will air July 9. Summitts son, Tyler was the lead storyteller, spending time with his mother on a couch in their home going through a scrapbook of her life. The film starts from Summitts earliest days and goes through her retirement last April. The 60-year-old former Tennessee coach acknowledged in her recently released book that at times she may not remember all the milestones of her career. This project will provide a reminder.

E.L. Konigsburg, 83 AUTHOR FALLS CHURCH, Va. E.L. Konigsburg, an author who twice won one of the top honors for childrens literature, has died. She was 83. Her son Paul Konigsburg said the longtime Florida resident died Friday at a hospital in Falls Church, Va., where shed been living for the past few years with another son. She had suffered a stroke a week before she died. She won the John Newbery Medal in 1997 for her book The View from Saturday and in 1968 for From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. The Newbery is one of the top honors for childrens literature. Her family said she wrote 16 childrens novels and illustrated three picture books. Her first book, Jennifer, Hecate, MacBeth, William McKinley, and Me, Elizabeth was also a Newbery honor book in 1968, making her the only author to be a winner and runner-up in the same year. In 1997, the Newbery committee called her story of a sixth grade Academic Bowl team and their coach a unique, jubilant tour de force characterized by good humor, positive relationships, distinctive personalities and brilliant story telling. Konigsburg said in an interview with The Associated Press at the time: The award represents a kind of validation that I find just most gratifying. In 2004, she told The Dallas Morning News that she built her characters and plots by imagining what-if situations with her children, grandchildren and students. I think most of us are outsiders, she said. And I think thats good because it makes you question things. I think it makes you see things outside yourself. Her stories were also adapted for movies and television. Ingrid Bergman starred as Mrs. Frankweiler in a 1973 film adaptation of Konigsburgs book called The Hideaways. Konigsburg grew up in Pennsylvania and graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in chemistry. She married David Konigsburg in 1952, and the couple lived in several cities before settling in the Jacksonville, Fla., area. Konigsburg, who had two sons and a daughter and five grandchildren, started writing and illustrating childrens books when her youngest child began kindergarten. Her husband died in 2001. Chrissy Amphlett, 53 SINGER SYDNEY Chrissy Amphlett, the raunchy lead singer of the Australian rock band Divinyls, whose hit I Touch Myself brought her international fame in the early 1990s, died at her home in New York City on Sunday. She was 53 years old. Christine Joy Amphlett succumbed to the effects of breast cancer and multiple sclerosis, diseases she vigorously fought with exceptional bravery and dignity, her musician husband Charley Drayton said in a statement. Chrissys light burns so very brightly. Hers was a life of passion and creativity. She always lived it to the fullest. With her force of character and vocal strength, she paved the way for strong, sexy, outspoken women, he said. Amphlett was an icon of Australian music re nowned for her distinctive singing voice as well as edgy stage performances clad in school uniforms and fishnet stockings. She was born on Oct. 25, 1959, in Geelong city in Victoria state, cousin of 1960s Australian pop star Patricia Amphlett, known as Little Pattie, who was at her New York bedside on Sunday. Amphlett met musician Mark McEntee at a concert at the Sydney Opera House in 1980 and the pair formed the Divinyls. The band released six albums between 1982 and 1996, peaking in 1991 with the success of the single I Touch Myself, which reached No. 1 in Australia, No. 4 in the United States and No. 10 in Britain. The band reformed briefly in 2006. Amphlett announced in 2007 that she had multiple sclerosis and in 2010 that she had cancer. Amphlett was also an actress who made her movie debut in the 1982 Australian film Monkey Grip. She later played Russell Crowes mother in the Australian stage production of the musical Blood Brothers. Crowe sent a Twitter message after Amphletts death. Dear Chrissie, The last time I saw you was in the Botanic Gardens, loving life and reciting verse. Thats how Ill remember you, your boy, R, it said.

Man uses machete on grandmother PLANT CITY Deputies arrested a man who is accused of attacking his 75year-old grandmother with a machete during a dispute at her home near Tampa. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office said 34-yearold Anthony Griffith got into a physical dispute with Barbara Harvey on Saturday afternoon. He then grabbed a machete and slashed her face and upper body. According to an arrest report, Griffith called 911 after the attack and explained what he had done. Deputies responded and arrested him without incident. A sheriffs spokeswoman says Harvey was in intensive care on Sunday night at Florida Hospital. Her grandson faces charges of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon on a victim over 65. Shooting in Fort Myers kills 2A 17-year-old football player and a 20-year-old were fatally shot in a Fort Myers public housing development. Authorities said the shooting happened late Saturday in the Renaissance Preserve. Police released few details about the shooting, which killed Fort Myers High School sophomore Jiatarious JoJo Brunson and Paul Baldwin. They were taken to a hospital where they were pronounced dead. The Fort Myers NewsPress reported police and investigators from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement were at the scene for six hours, interviewing family members and neighbors. Authorities said Baldwin was injured during a drive-by shooting in September 2012. The newspaper reported that police identified him as a member of a local rap group, Lake Boyz. Fort Myers police are asking anyone with information about the shooting to call them. Suspicious package found BUNNELL Authorities have quarantined two employees of a central Florida motel after finding a suspicious package containing a white substance. Bunnell police called in hazmat officials Saturday to examine the package and cordoned off the area. The powder tested positive for cocaine. The Daytona Beach NewsJournal reported employees opened the package in the motel office on Saturday. With recent events around the country, Bunnell City Manager Armando Martinez said officials cant be too cautious. Bunnell Police Chief Jeff Hoffman said the department will work with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service to determine who sent the package to the motel. Boy injured in gator attack BOYNTON BEACH A 6year-old South Florida boy suffered minor injuries after being attacked by an alligator, federal wildlife officials said Monday. The alligator attacked Friday afternoon when Joey Welch of Pompano Beach fell into shallow water at the edge of a boat ramp in the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. I went in it and there was a splash. The alligator just swam into me and clamped my arm, the boy told WPLG-TV. Joeys father and other bystanders punched and kicked the alligator until it released the child. I didnt want to play tug-ofwar with the alligator and get his arm ripped off, Joseph Welch told WSVN-TV. Joey was treated at a hospital for cuts and bruises to his right arm, shoulder and chest, wildlife officials said. His father had a bruised right hand from punching the alligator.

The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Dealing a blow to business groups, a Senate committee Monday revamped a controversial bill that would place more restrictions on expert witnesses in lawsuits. The Senate Rules Committee voted 8-7 to approve an amendment that threatens to scuttle the bill (SB 1412), which groups such as the Florida Chamber of Commerce have made a priority. A similar scenario played out last year, when a Senate amendment effectively killed the bill. Yogi Berra deja vu all over again, said the bills sponsor, Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Naples. Richters proposal, which the House has already backed, would lead to courts using a more-stringent standard when deciding whether expert testimony should be admitted in cases. But Sen. David Simmons, a Maitland Republican who offered the amendment, said the Richter proposal would lead to delays and extra expenses in lawsuits and be used as a tactical maneuver by defendants to wear down their opponents. He was backed by the states prosecuting attorneys and the Florida Justice Association, which includes civil plaintiffs attorneys. While somewhat arcane, the expert-witness issue has become a battleground in recent years as business groups seek changes in the legal system to help shield companies from costly litigation. Expert testimony can be critical in complex civil and criminal cases. Business groups want to ditch a standard that Florida courts have used for decades known in the legal world as the Frye standard and move to tougher requirements that are used in the federal courts. Those requirements are known as the Daubert standard. Critics of the Frye standard say it allows junk science to be admitted into cases. But opponents of moving to the Daubert standard say it would lead to road blocks to legitimate testimony going before juries. The current standard, at least in part, requires judges to determine whether an experts testimony is based on scientific principle or discovery that has gained general acceptance in the particular scientific field. But the Daubert standard would require judges to look at whether testimony is based upon sufficient facts or data; whether it is the product of reliable principles and methods; and whether a witness has applied the principles and methods reliably to the facts of the case. Simmons, who is an attorney, described his amendment as a hybrid. While it mirrored parts of Richters bill, Simmons said it would allow expert testimony that is generally accepted in the scientific community so that parties wouldnt have to go back and re-prove or reinvent the wheel. Four Republicans joined four Democrats in voting for the amendment, while six Republicans and one Democrat voted against it. The committee then voted 13-2 to approve the amended bill, a move Richter supported because he said he wanted to keep it alive for the Senate floor. The House last week approved its version of the Richter proposal (HB 7015). Last year, the House also passed such a bill but refused to go along with a Senate amendment. Expert witness bill hits rough patch Measure would strengthen standards for allowable testimony State BRIEFS From wire reports

Supporters: Dont link immigration bill to Boston Associated PressWASHINGTON Democratic supporters of a new immigration bill accused opponents Monday of trying to exploit the Boston Marathon bombings to hold up the legislation, sparking a testy exchange at a Senate hearing. I never said that! I never said that! Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, interjected as Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., a lead author of the bill, criticized those who are pointing to what happened, the terrible tragedy in Boston, as a, I would say, excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it. Schumer said he wasnt talking about Grassley, who said last week that the bombings, allegedly carried out by two immigrant brothers, raised question about gaps in the U.S. immigration system that should be examined in context of the new bill. Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., banged his gavel to settle the proceedings. The exchange came as the Judiciary Committee opened its second hearing on sweeping legislation to strengthen border security, allow tens of thousands of new highand low-skilled workers into the country, require all employers to check their workers legal status, and provide an eventual path to citizenship for some 11 million immigrants now here illegally. The obstacles to the legislation, released last week by a group of four Republican and four Democratic senators, were on stark display Monday. Polls show majority public backing for comprehensive legislation including a path to citizenship, and many Republicans also support such an approach. But in some corners, opposition has not wavered. That became clear as GOP senators took turns offering critiques. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called a path to citizenship divisive, and said any bill that insists upon that jeopardizes the likelihood of passing any immigration reform bill. Sen. Jeff Sessions, RAla., contended the new bill would drive down wages and eliminate jobs for American workers. Sen. John Cornyn, RTexas, said the border security piece of the bill falls well short of the sponsors aspiration to protect the borders and maintain U.S. sovereignty. And Grassley said new requirements mandating employers to verify employees legal status are ineffective. Republicans werent the only ones to find the legislation wanting. Several Democrats expressed concerns over the exclusion of provisions to recognize gay marriages for immigration purposes. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., promised to fight to get such a measure included something Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has said could sink the bill. Rows of spectators looked on wearing white Tshirts reading Keep Families Together as senators heard Monday from business and labor leaders, immigration advocates and opponents of reform, and others. But as happened at the first hearing on the bill, on Friday, the Boston Marathon bombings colored the proceedings. The attacks were allegedly carried out by two ethnic Chechen immigrant brothers who both arrived legally in the U.S. about a decade ago and sought asylum. One was a legal permanent resident and the other a naturalized U.S. citizen. On Monday, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., joined Grassley and others whove suggested that the bombings showed the need to examine national security and the U.S. immigration system. We should not proceed until we understand the specific failures of our immigration system, Paul wrote in a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid, DNev. Paul said national security protections must be part of any immigration legislation to ensure the federal government does everything it can to keep immigrants with malicious intent from using the immigration system to enter the country to commit acts of terror. Associated PressNEW DELHI A child disappears. Police are called. Nothing happens. Child rights activists say the rape last week of a 5year-old girl is just the latest case in which Indian police failed to take urgent action on a report of a missing child. Three days after the attack, the girl was found alone in locked room in the same New Delhi building where her family lives. More than 90,000 children go missing in India each year; more than 34,000 are never found. Some parents say they lost crucial time because police wrongly dismissed their missing children as runaways, refused to file reports or treated the cases as nuisances. The parents of the 5year-old said that after their daughter disappeared, they repeatedly begged police to register a complaint and begin a search, but they were rejected. Three days later, neighbors heard the sound of a child crying from a locked room in the tenement. They broke down the door and rushed the brutalized girl to the police station. The parents said the police response was to offer the couple 2,000 rupees ($37) to keep quiet about what had happened. They just wanted us to go away. They didnt want to register a case even after they saw how badly our daughter was injured, said the girls father, who cannot be identified because Indian law requires a rape victims identity be kept secret. Delhis Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar admitted Monday that local police had erred in handling the case. There have been shortfalls, so the station house officer and his deputy have been suspended, Kumar told reporters. Other poor parents of missing children say they also have found police reluctant to help them. Formal police complaints were registered in only one-sixth of missing child cases in 2011, said Bhuwan Ribhu, a lawyer with Bachpan Bachao Andolan, or the Save the Childhood Movement. He said police resist registering cases because they want to keep crime figures low, and that parents are often too poor to bribe them to reconsider. Ribhu said the first few hours after a child goes missing are the most crucial. The police can cordon off nearby areas, issue alerts at railway and bus stations, and step up vigilance to catch the kidnappers, he said. Activists say delays let traffickers move children to neighboring states, where the police dont have jurisdiction. There is no national database of missing children that state police can reference. Police have insisted most of missing children are runways fleeing grinding poverty. Its easy enough to blame the police for not finding the children. Some of the parents do not even possess a photograph of the child. Or they will come up with a yearsold picture. It becomes difficult when theres not even a photograph to work with, Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said last month when asked about complaints on police inaction in investigating case of missing children. Many cases involved poor migrant construction workers who move from site to site around the city, Bhagat said. The children are unfamiliar with the place and once they lose their way, they wouldnt know how to return, he said. Indias Women and Child Development Minister Krishna Tirath told Parliament last month that the problem of missing children had assumed alarming proportions. The National Crime Records Bureau reported that 34,406 missing children were never found in 2011, up from 18,166 in 2009.

KERR Associated PressWASHINGTON More parents need to talk with their teens about the dangers of abusing Ritalin, Adderall and other prescription drugs, suggests a new study that finds discouraging trends on kids and drug use. When teens were asked about the last substance abuse conversation they had with their parents, just 14 percent said they talked about abusing a prescription drug, said the report being released Tuesday by The Partnership at Drugfree.org. For parents, it really comes down to not using the power they have because they dont think this is an immediate problem, meaning their own home, own neighborhood kind of thing, says Steve Pasierb, president of the partnership. They believe that this is probably a safer way, not as bad as illegal street drugs. By comparison, most teens 81 percent said they have talked about the risks of marijuana use with their parents. Almost the same number said they have discussed alcohol with their parents. Almost one-third said they have talked about crack and cocaine. Some parents didnt see a significant risk in teens misusing prescription drugs. One in six parents said using prescription drugs to get high is safer than using street drugs, according to the survey. Almost one-third of the parents said attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medications such as Ritalin or Adderall can improve a childs academic or testing performance even if the teen does not have ADHD. For Tracey and Jeff Gerl, of Cypress, Texas, their sons drug abuse problem was a shock. We just didnt know, said Jeff. He and his wife had the drugs are bad talk with their son, Nick, and thought he got the message. They called the parents of friends when he said he was spending the night to make sure an adult would be home. They tried to get to know his friends. Despite their efforts, Nick started smoking pot at the age of 12. In an AP interview, Nick said he and his friends often raided their parents medicine cabinets for anything they could get their hands on codeine, Xanax, Ritalin. Some kids, Nick said, would have skittles parties, where the teens threw all the pills they poached from home into a big bowl, mixed them up and then took a few without knowing exactly what they were ingesting. By 14, Nicks parents knew something was wrong. The day before he turned 15, they sent Nick to The Center for Success and Independence in Houston for 7 1/2 months of substance abuse treatment. It wasnt easy on anyone in the family Nick, his two younger brothers and his parents. Nick tried to escape twice, but made it through the program and has been sober now for a year. My family life is a lot better. Im realizing there are fun things in life that I can do sober, said Nick, now 16. I got a chance to get clean and I have my whole life ahead of me. One in four teens in the study said they had misused or abused a prescription drug at least once. Thats up sharply, a 33 percent increase, in the last five years. One in eight teens report misusing or abusing the drugs Ritalin or Adderall stimulants prescribed to treat ADHD. Other national studies also have seen a rise in abuse numbers for these stimulants among teens. The partnerships Pasierb says parents need to talk early and often with their children about the dangers of drugs, including prescription drugs. They need to tell their children that this isnt healthy for you and it will break my heart if you do this. Looking back, Tracey Gerl says she should have listened to her gut more when she first suspected Nick might be using drugs. If it doesnt seem right, its not, said Gerl. Dont ever be naive to think its not my kid.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott is making personal pitches to lawmakers in pushing for a late breakthrough to exempt manufacturers from paying sales taxes on equipment purchases, one of his legislative priorities this year. The Republican governor is meeting one-on-one with lawmakers to pitch his idea of boosting Floridas manufacturing sector by giving manufacturers a blanket exemption from paying the 6 percent sales tax on equipment purchases, two of his key allies on the issue said Monday. We are working hard to move it along, said Sen. Dorothy Hukill, a Port Orange Republican who is sponsoring the Senate version (SB 518). I know the governor is very engaged at this point. Supporters say the exemption is needed to stimulate job growth in manufacturing, which they say has lagged in a state that relies on a vast services industry tied to its sunshine, beaches and theme parks. The bills opponents have said they support manufacturing but criticized the idea of granting a tax break targeting that one sector of the economy. The proposed tax break is contained in companion bills that havent come up for debate yet in the full House or Senate. Two weeks remain in the 60day session. Scott made a public pitch for the proposal Monday, telling reporters: We want more manufacturing jobs in our state. The right way to get those is to eliminate the sales tax on machinery equipment so we have more jobs for more Florida families. The main obstacles in the Legislature are policy questions and the cost of exempting manufacturers from paying the sales tax, said Hukill and Rep. Ritch Workman, who also supports the proposal. Its not politics, its obviously policy and its money, Hukill said in an interview. The exemption is estimated to cost the state about $115 million in lost tax revenue in the first year, said Hukill, who heads the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Finance and Tax. At the end of the day, there are 10,000 different ideas to build jobs and spur the economy, said Workman, a Melbourne Republican who heads the House Finance and Tax Subcommittee. There are 160 members of the Legislature. You have to convince them that this one rises to the top, if were going to spend $115 million on anything. Just saying I want this from the governor isnt necessarily enough.

Interest rates Stocks edge higher Energy stocks rebound Associated PressNEW YORK Stocks edged higher on Monday as energy stocks got a lift from recovering oil prices. The energy industry climbed 1 percent, making it the biggest gainer in the Standard & Poors 500 index. Oil rose 75 cents, or 0.9 percent, to $88.76 a barrel Monday. A week ago, crude fell below $90 a barrel for the first time this year after reports that Chinas economic growth slowed. The broader market managed only a modest advance as investors focused on the outlook for company profits at the start of a big week for earnings on Wall Street. About a third of the companies in the S&P 500 index, including Exxon Mobil and Apple, will report earnings this week. While the reports have been good so far, concerns remain about the outlook for the rest of the year. Expectations may need to be lowered if the global economy doesnt improve. Most of the companies seem to be coming in ahead of earnings expectations, but the thing thats still problematic is the revenue line, said Bill Stone, chief investment strategist at PNC Wealth Management. To me its just symptomatic of the global economy continuing to sputter along. Of the companies that have reported earnings so far, 67 percent have exceeded analysts expectations, exceeding the 10year average of 62 percent, according to S&P Capital IQ. Analysts currently expect earnings to rise by 2 percent in the first quarter, down from the 7.7 percent increase in the fourth quarter. On Monday, oil services company Halliburton gained after its loss wasnt as bad as analysts had forecast. Halliburton rose $2.08, or 5.6 percent, to $39.29 after it said that it lost $18 million in the first quarter, pulled down by $637 million in charges related to its role in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Caterpillar is the worst performing stock in the Dow Jones industrial average this year, down 8 percent and, management lowered its expectations for full-year profits Monday. Caterpillar said mining customers placed big orders for gear last year, just as mining profits fell. Dealers, who would normally be stocking up on gear to get ready for a busy summer, instead cut inventory during the first quarter. The company reported that first-quarter net income dropped to $882 million, or $1.31 per share. Revenue fell 17 percent to $13.21 billion, from $15.98 billion a year ago. Caterpillar expects to earn $7 per share this year, down from prior guidance of $7 to $9.

O PINION Page A10 TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 Leaders must lead Some Second Amendment advocates stress the need for increased mental health checks over any other type of background check as related to the purchase of any type firearm. This argument would make sense had not our government slashed, cut or is in the process of cutting more funds from health, education and many other so-called entitlements for the sake of a balanced budget. I do not claim to have the answers to our gun issue an issue which has ballooned out of proportion over the years. But to have anyone try and lay even the tiniest bit of blame solely on the mentally ill in our country as the main reason for our gun problem is absurd. Especially in light of Sen. Mitch McConnells recent campaign meeting in Frankfurt, Ky., where he and his aides laughed about depression, political positions and religious beliefs. How much more hypocritical can we get? The sworn leaders of our democracy mock, laugh and scorn mental health, religion and politics, yet seek to be elected in order to serve the people of the United States. Maybe the time has come to seek solutions to our many problems by finding a solution whereby we are able to elect representatives who have the best interests of their constituents and country. What we have now are a Congress full of wealthy people, seeking to get wealthier, and continually seeking ways to be reelected. I hope for our countrys sake, we have not passed beyond the point of no return in finding a solution to our many problems. Jack Stawicki Beverly Hills All are welcome In response to Maria Weisers issue with the Christ Medical Center name and large cross, I submit my perspective. As a child, in Colorado, I had an emergency appendectomy at St. Anthonys hospital. Though not Catholic, I respected the many nuns who roamed the halls and helped care for patients. My parents took no issue with the hospitals name. My children were born at St. Lukes, which provided a chapel for everyone, regardless of belief, to pray or rest. Beth-Israel hospital, obviously Jewish, saved my life when I was near death from pneumonia. Florida offers a mix of medical professionals and my hope in seeing them is to be properly and compassionately treated without question as to religious beliefs. If Allah or Buddha medical center could cure my ailments, treat my sickness and make me feel better, I would not hesitate to go there. My beliefs are personal. We live in a free country which permits worship as we see fit. I am certain Christ Medical Center welcomes everyone, regardless of their faith or lack of it. Joanie Welch Inverness I find myself at that age where my dear wife has to repeat things occasionally to make sure I heard the key words, like empty and the garbage. I also sometimes need to read news articles a couple of times to make sure I got the entire scope and meaning of the article. So I hope someone can correct any misunderstanding of what I believe I am reading and hearing about our 2013 Florida Legislative session. There are two proposed bills that are sliding through this session with minimal discussion or opposition. They are HB 999 and SB 1684, which have been deemed trains because they are loaded to the hilt with things various lobbyists need for their clients such as further weakening of water management districts, eliminating or weakening some water use permitting requirements and air quality standards, preventing local governments from questioning developers as to potential impacts of proposed development projects, relaxation of septic tank inspections and on and on and on. These types of bills are not new to this group of legislators and our current state leadership. They have found the need to introduce all kinds of legislation the past two years and now this year to reverse 50 years of progress in protecting Floridas fragile and life-giving environment. And the life-giving here is not just for frogs, birds and alligators it is our economic lifeblood, it is our drinking water, it is the source of many of our livelihoods. People come to Citrus County by the thousands to swim in our springs, swim with the manatees and catch the tarpon on our gin-clear saltwater flats. As one longtime observer said recently, people dont come to Florida to see another strip mall with asphalt parking spaces. They come to enjoy Floridas unmatched beauty, including her springs, rivers, lakes, beaches and wild areas. What happened to the extraordinary foresight of our past governors and legislators of both political parties over the last 50 years, who together implemented strong protection for our most important natural assets? I hate to tell you, but those days seem to be gone. It appears now that many of our state leaders are of the mind that anything that might bring short-term economic gain is worth reversing 50 years of thoughtful progress in protecting the states natural resources, including our drinking water. There seems to be total disregard for the fact that our major springs are seeing significant declines in flows and water quality. Silver Springs experienced its lowest flow in its 80year record this past year. Its level of pollutants (nitrates) is 20 times the historic natural background. Its natural stock of game fish is almost gone. The spring is clouded by growth of noxious algae and undesirable vegetation. Sound familiar? Our own Crystal River and her springs are experiencing similar water quality problems and growth of undesirable elements like lyngbya. Ask the folks who live on our local spring-fed rivers if they have seen negative change in their rivers in recent years. Talk to folks who live in Cedar Key their freshwater drinking water source has become salty. They are now drinking very expensive reverse-osmosis water due to apparent saltwater intrusion. Our springs are but a reflection of what is going on in our aquifers the drinking water source for most of our citizens in Florida. Even more disturbing is that it appears our local legislators are voting in favor of these bills to continue to dismantle the dwindling protections our state still has in place. I hope I am wrong here but check the voting record of State Sen. Charlie Dean and State Rep. Jimmie Smith on these particular bills. It is very hard to understand how Citrus County, with three spring-fed rivers, several Outstanding Florida Waters, some of the most beautiful lakes in the state, and a well-documented healthy aquifer system, could have local elected legislators who would vote for less protection of these important resources. Say it aint true! Gary Kuhl is a former Citrus County administrator. Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.

The oversight has been corrected, but the incident leaves a bitter taste for taxpayers who are clamoring for administration and commissioners to spend their tax dollars wisely. To hear both sides tell it, the lapse was a misunderstanding of policy. The policy allows for employees to receive administrative leave with pay if they are called as witnesses. The employee in question produced a subpoena, which on the surface suggested he was being summoned as a witness and not a defendant. Nonetheless, had staff read the statute to the employee and questioned what his role would be, they could have avoided the awkwardness. The policy reads: An employee subpoenaed as a witness in a court or an administrative hearing, not involving his/her own personal litigation or service as a paid expert witness, shall be granted administrative leave with pay In no case shall administrative leave with pay be granted for court attendance when an employee is engaged in personal litigation or service as a paid expert witness; however, an employee may be granted annual leave in such cases with the approval of the department/office director. With a modicum of effort, the matter would have been cleared up before it became an embarrassment. The employee knew he was testifying as a defendant and therefore would not have been eligible for pay. County staff should understand it is under a microscope, especially in times of economic trouble. Taxpayers foot the bill for salaries and a host of other government functions. When staff appear to take a flippant attitude toward spending others hardearned money, it is no wonder people get cranky. Let this, and some of the other recent missteps, be a lesson to staff and administration. It is time to treat every dollar as if its your last. Be better stewards of taxpayer dollars.

Points to ponder The president has blocked the opening of the Keystone Pipeline to prevent further damage to the environment by global warming. But if oil is not sold in the U.S. it will be sold in China. In both cases arent the combustion products the same? And well simply buy more from the Middle East, wont we? The economies of North Dakota and several other states are booming. Low unemployment, increased construction of roads, bridges, homes and schools are being fueled by natural gas and oil exploration on private lands. The president proudly announces Americas decreasing dependency on foreign oil while rejecting new drilling permits on government land. The Atlantic, the Pacific and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge are off limits. Why? Ethanol, predominately from corn, is mandated in gasoline. It has only 75 percent of the energy value of unblended gasoline; this reduces MPG, thereby increasing pollution. Diverting corn to ethanol increases the price of everything that requires corn. Time to rethink the policy? Thirty years ago, Nobel economist Milton Friedman noted how truly bloated the federal government is. Each U.S. senator has a staff of about 65; each representative has 25. We pay the salaries of more than 17,000 aides every single year. Add the salaries and perks of 100 senators and 435 representatives, and youll understand why D.C. has a housing boom. That doesnt include the White House and the dozens of bureaus, departments and authorities. Are we getting our moneys worth when Sen. Harry Reid doesnt pass a budget in four years and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi tells us We must pass Obamacare to find out whats in it? What a disgrace! The president tells us we can add 30 million to government health care and it wont cost any more, and we can keep our own plans and keep our own doctors. And the press is silent. Trillions in cash income remains undeclared and further trillions remain overseas or hidden in offshore financial centers. Why? To avoid the taxes required by our current IRS. Thats the same IRS that allows a surcharge of $2,500 on lawful taxpayers to make up for the cheaters. With open discussion, we may yet see the wisdom of the Fair Tax, my personal preference, or a flat tax. Union members are exempted from Obamacare. Could that be a way of saying thank you for all your financial support? The GI Bill was one of the most successful programs ever enacted. Vouchers were given to veterans and they could use them to attend any school they chose. Can students today receive vouchers to do the same? Oh no! If they attend a private or parochial school, they pay the tuition, plus the taxes to support the schools they dont even attend. Vouchers to buy health insurance of your choice? No, again. Government will choose for you. Why is decreasing the rate of spending increase called a cut? Why is government spending an investment and programs which include tax increases are always a balanced approach? Joseph P Ryan Homosassa Safety tip For the second time in a week, we have had a person killed in a vehicle accident involving someone turning in front of oncoming traffic. Its an all-toocommon occurrence here. While its tempting to attribute this to carelessness and the age of the drivers, it can also be caused by a naturally occurring blind spot in our vision which many people are not aware of and do not know how to compensate for. Aviators are taught at an early stage of their training to have your head on a swivel, to move your head and look around. The reason is obvious. A collision in the air usually has fatal results. The technique of moving your head as you look around compensates for the natural occurring blind spot that you will have if the image from one eye is blocked. Im sure all of us have had the experience of having something appear out of nowhere. Actually, it was just hidden in your blind spot and it was there all the time. Believe it or not, the blind spot can be large enough to hide a semi under the right conditions. We, like all predators, have binocular vision, the ability to see depth of field. That design of our vision causes us to have a blind spot in each eye caused by the location of the optic nerve leaving the back of the eye and running to the brain. We normally dont see the blind spot because it is in a slightly different location for each eye and the brain fills in the missing information by combining the image from the other eye and gives us the correct picture. However, if the image from one eye is blocked for some reason, like the corner post of your windshield or your glasses frame, the brain will fill in the blind spot caused by the optic nerves location by taking the image surrounding the blind spot and filling it in with that image. You can find tons of information on this just by going to Google and typing in blind spot. I also offer this link that has a short demonstration that you can use to see your blind spot: http://serendip. brynmawr.edu/bb/blind spot1.html. Just remember that when you look left, then right, and then left one last time, move your head fore and aft a little to compensate for your blind spot. Be safe. Harley Lawrence Homosassa Thank you! Our Rotary Club of Inverness recently completed a Sprucing Up Project at the Inverness Boys & Girls Club. We had a vision to add some materials and improve the appearance of the club so it would have a warmer and more welcoming atmosphere for the children. This building once housed the old Inverness police department and it had the stark, cold, impersonal appearance of that former identity. In August of this year, our Rotary Club ear-marked $2,000 towards this project and we then applied for and received a matching grant from our Rotary district for another $2,000. The goal seemed rather daunting, as we knew we would have a tight budget for everything we wanted to do. We wanted to paint all the walls, professionally clean the carpeting and the upholstered chairs, replace the frayed and mismatched carpeting, knock out a wall to open up a recreation room, add book shelving and new and exciting books, repair some of the broken doors and equipment (a Foosball table was missing a leg), relocate the computer lab, buy new tables for the study room, add draperies, new computers, a wireless system, a printer, new video games, and new and pretty shrubs and flowers in the entrance flower beds. Our goal was accomplished, but not without the labor of 26 members of the Rotary Club of Inverness, their friends, their families, some Boys & Girls Club staff, and the Interact Club of Citrus High School on several weekends. We scraped paint, scrubbed baseboards, painted, moved furniture, made repairs, shelved books, cleaned, delivered new equipment, dug flowerbeds and planted some beautiful new flora. In addition, many businesses came forward and helped us with this project through donations of products or services, making our accomplishments far beyond the $4,000 budget that we were allotted. Special thanks to the following local people and businesses who took this project to the next level because of their tremendous generosity: The Family Resource Center, Joes Carpet Inc., Keith Scott Enterprises, Kell Jemison and BNS (Business Network Systems), Likwid Communications Inc., Marks Flooring Inc., Mary Lundberg, The Olbek Family in memory of Paige Hanisch.

Tsarnaev could face death penalty Associated PressBOSTON Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was charged in his hospital room Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill, and he could get the death penalty. Tsarnaev, 19, was accused by federal prosecutors of joining with his older brother to set off the two pressure-cooker bombs that sprayed shrapnel into the crowd at the finish line last Monday, killing three people and wounding more than 180. The criminal complaint containing the charges shed no light on the motive for the attack. Tsarnaev was listed in serious but stable condition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, unable to speak because of a gunshot wound to the throat. His brother, Tamerlan, 26, died last week in a fierce gunbattle with police. Although our investigation is ongoing, todays charges bring a successful end to a tragic week for the city of Boston and for our country, Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement. The charges carry the death penalty or a prison sentence of up to life. He has whats coming to him, a wounded Kaitlynn Cates said from her hospital room. She was at the finish line when the first blast knocked her off her feet, and she suffered an injury to her lower leg. In outlining the evidence against him in court papers, the FBI said Tsarnaev was seen on surveillance cameras putting a knapsack down on the ground near the site of the second blast and then manipulating a cellphone and lifting it to his ear. Seconds later, the first explosion went off about a block down the street and spread fear and confusion through the crowd. But Tsarnaev unlike nearly everyone around him looked calm and quickly walked away, the FBI said. Just 10 seconds or so later, the second blast occurred where he had left the knapsack, the FBI said. The FBI did not make it clear whether authorities believe he used his cellphone to detonate one or both of the bombs or whether he was talking to someone. The court papers also said that during the long night of crime Thursday and Friday that led to the older brothers death and the younger ones capture, one of the Tsarnaev brothers told a carjacking victim: Did you hear about the Boston explosion? I did that. The brothers are ethnic Chechens from Russia who have lived in the U.S. for about a decade. Investigators are focusing on a trip the older brother made last year to Chechnya and Dagestan, in a region of Russia that has become a hotbed of separatist politics and Islamic extremism. Tsarnaev was charged with using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction against persons and property, resulting in death. He is also likely to face state charges in connection with the shooting death of an MIT police officer. The Obama administration said it had no choice but to prosecute Tsarnaev in the federal court system. Some politicians had suggested he be tried as an enemy combatant in front of a military tribunal, where defendants are denied some of the usual U.S. constitutional protections. But Tsarnaev is a naturalized U.S. citizen, and under U.S. law, American citizens cannot be tried by military tribunals, White House spokesman Jay Carney said. Carney said that since 9/11, the federal court system has been used to convict and imprison hundreds of terrorists. In its criminal complaint, the FBI said it searched Tsarnaevs dorm room at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth on Sunday and found BBs as well as a white hat and dark jacket that look like those worn by one of one of the suspected bombers in the surveillance photos the FBI released a few days after the attack. Fifty-one victims remained hospitalized Monday, three of them in critical condition. Associated PressLUSHAN, China The tent village that sprang up in two days to house quake survivors in mountainflanked Lushan is no ordinary refugee camp. Chinas full range of disaster response is on display: Trucks with X-ray equipment, phone-charging stations, bank tellers-on-wheels even a tent for insurance claims. The efforts under way Monday in mountainous Sichuan province after a quake Saturday that killed at least 188 people showed that the government has continued to hone its disaster reaction long considered a crucial leadership test in China since a much more devastating earthquake in 2008, also in Sichuan, and another one in 2010 in the western region of Yushu. Lushan was so heavily hit and my familys house toppled. It has been such a disaster for us, said Yue Hejun, 28, as he waited to recharge his familys three mobile phones at a charging stall, volunteered by a communications company and coordinated by the government in a new addition to the arsenal of services after natural disasters. If we can charge our phones, we are at least able to keep in touch with our family members outside and that helps to set our minds at ease. At a mini-clinic with two green cots in the open air and a small tent for doctors to sleep, a doctor said the government has learned the importance of fast coordination since the Yushu quake, which killed more than 2,600 people. Much of the initial relief in that disaster came from Buddhist monks and other nongovernment volunteers, partly because of the remoteness of much of the affected areas. After 24 hours or 48 hours in Yushu, things were not so orderly or settled in, said the doctor, who like many government officials would give only her surname, Luo. The governments quick, organized response is very important. Its no use to blindly come here and try to save people. Wreckage Associated Press Five days after a fertilizer plant explosion, homeowner Ray Rosales sorts through debris Monday in West, Texas. The massive explosion at the West Fertilizer Co. last Wednesday killed 14 people and injured more than 160 others. FBI: No ricin in home of suspect OXFORD, Miss. Investigators havent found any ricin in the house of Mississippi man accused of mailing poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. senator and a local judge, according to testimony Monday from an FBI agent. Agent Brandon Grant said that a search of Paul Kevin Curtis vehicle and house in Corinth, Miss., on Friday did not turn up ricin or ingredients for the poison. A search of Curtis computers has found no evidence so far that he researched making ricin. Through his lawyer, Curtis has denied involvement in letters sent to Obama, Mississippi Republican Sen. Roger Wicker and a Lee County, Miss., judge. The letters, bearing a Memphis, Tenn., postmark, were detected beginning April 15. Curtis lawyer said in court that someone may have framed Curtis, suggesting a former co-worker with whom Curtis had an extended exchange of angry emails may have set him up. Bombing might provide leadsWALTHAM, Mass. Authorities in a Boston suburb say they will investigate if any links turn up between a suspect in last weeks Boston Marathon bombing and an unsolved 2011 slaying. Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was pronounced dead early Friday after a shootout with police, was a friend of one of three men found dead in an apartment in Waltham on Sept. 12, 2011, with their necks slit and their bodies reportedly covered with marijuana. Tsarnaevs friend, Brendan Mess, was also a boxer. Middlesex County District Attorneys Office spokeswoman MaryBeth Long told The Associated Press on Monday that her office will not reveal details of its investigation, but said investigators would follow up if the bombing probe provides any new clues into the slaying. Man killed girlfriend, others FEDERAL WAY, Wash. Police said a man killed his live-in girlfriend at an apartment complex south of Seattle then fatally shot three men, including one who had phoned 911 to report hearing gunfire. Arriving officers found a chaotic scene in Federal Way on Sunday night. Authorities said officers twice shot at the suspect in a stairway and in a parking lot. The 28-year-old suspect also died at the scene. Federal Way Police Chief Brian Wilson said authorities first received reports of suspicious circumstances about 9:35 p.m. Sunday.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Monday that Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser, who live in Montreal and Toronto areas, were conspiring to carry out an attack against Via Rail, but posed no immediate threat. It was definitely in the planning stage but not imminent, RCMP chief superintendent Jennifer Strachan told reporters. Charges against the two men include conspiring to carry out an attack and murder people in association with a terrorist group. Police said the men are not Canadian citizens, but declined to say where they were from. Police said the men had direction and guidance from members of al-Qaida.

High-tech quake zone in China Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Flight delays pile up Monday Associated PressNEW YORK It was a tough start to the week for many air travelers. Flight delays piled up all along the East Coast Monday as thousands of air traffic controllers were forced to take an unpaid day off because of federal budget cuts. Some flights into New York, Baltimore and Washington were delayed by more than two hours as the Federal Aviation Administration kept planes on the ground because there werent enough controllers to monitor busy air corridors. One out of every five flights at New Yorks LaGuardia International scheduled to take off before noon on Monday was delayed 15 minutes or more, according to flight tracking service FlightAware. Last Monday morning, just 2 percent of LaGuardias flights were delayed. The situation was similar at Washingtons Reagan National Airport, in Newark, N.J., and in Philadelphia. Some flights were late by two hours or more. The furloughs are part of mandatory budget cuts that kicked in March 1 after Democrats and Republicans missed a deadline to agree on a long-term deficit reduction plan. FAA officials have said they have no choice but to furlough all 47,000 agency employees, including nearly 15,000 air traffic controllers. Each employee will lose one day of work every other week. The FAA has said planes will have to take off and land less frequently, so as not to overload the remaining controllers on duty. Monday is typically one of the busiest days at airports, with many business travelers setting out for a week on the road. The FAAs controller cuts a 10 percent reduction of its staff went into effect Sunday, but the full force wasnt felt until Monday morning. Delta Air Lines said it was disappointed in the furloughs and warned travelers Monday to expect delays in the following cities: New York, Philadelphia, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego. Many flights heading to Florida were seeing delays of up to an hour.

S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentLECANTO Seven Lecanto errors and a four-hit, complete-game performance from West Port senior Alec Jewell helped the fifth-seeded Wolf Pack eliminate the No. 4 seed Panthers from the District 6A-6 baseball tournament with a 10-4 victory at LHS on Monday. West Port (4-17 overall) rallied for four runs in both the third and seventh innings, with a combined eight hits and four Lecanto errors, to capture its first district win of the season and advance to todays semifinal round at Central High for a 5 p.m. game against top seed Citrus (12-13). After falling behind 6-0 in the top of the third, the Panthers (9-14 overall) began chipping away at the Wolf Pack advantage with a run in the third on an RBI single by senior pitcher Joey Spell, two in the fourth off a triple by junior third baseman Levi OSteen and one more in the fifth by senior center fielder Scott Stearns, who stole second and third base and scored on a wild pitch after reaching on a hit-batter. But West Port put it out of reach in the seventh as it batted around the order with five hits. Spell yielded seven hits, two walks and a hit-batter while fanning one in three innings, but only one of the Wolf Packs six runs against him were earned, as Lecanto totaled four costly errors between the second and third innings. Senior Shawn Supinski struck out two West Port batters and surrendered two walks and six hits in four innings of relief. Joey (Spell) did good, Lecanto coach Dave Logue said. He pitched his butt off and other than some locations on a few pitches, he did everything I could ask him to do. Its a lot easier to play with the lead. The Panthers struck out seven times in the game against Jewell and failed to muster a hit in the final three innings. Youve got to give Jewell credit, Logue said. He battled us and mostly threw strikes, while keeping us off balance with his curveball. We couldnt catch up to his fastball, bottom line. We got the best of him earlier in the year, but when you make seven errors and walk that many, while giving up probably more than five 0-2 and 1-2 count hits, your chances of winning are going to be tough. Its a tough loss. I was hoping we could make it to play Citrus, but it wasnt the way it turned out. Jewell was 3 for 5 at the plate to pace the Wolf Pack which stranded 11 base runners while senior right fielder Alex Hansen (2 for 4), junior designated hitter Kavelin Rummalo and sophomore shortstop Jesus Rivera each had two hits. We were on our A game tonight, thats for sure, West Port head coach Chris Wisman said. Alec (Jewell) was great, offensively and pitching. Everyone was hitting the ball and the defense really stepped up after having some problems this year. We let a couple slip away against Lecanto this year and the kids came out fired up. They had a game plan and they knew they could win. Associated PressTAMPA Darrelle Revis walked into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers weight room and received a round of applause from some of his new teammates. The warm reception meant a lot to Revis. The three-time All-Pro may have left the New York Jets feeling underappreciated, but hes a welcome addition to a defense that ranked last in the NFL last season and is expected to help transform the Bucs into a playoff team. And, the well-paid Revis is confident hes up to the task. Were going to make a lot of noise. Dont worry about that, the seventh-year pro said Monday. I think this was a great move on my part to be a part of this organization. The star cornerback acquired from the Jets said hes going to do my best to play up to expectations that come with a new six-year, $96 million contract. He also insisted during a news conference that he holds no grudges against his old team, which was reluctant to give a player coming off surgery to repair a torn knee ligament such a commitment. I have nothing to prove to the New York Jets, Revis said. I have nothing to prove to anybody. Weeks of reports about the 27-year-olds future ended Sunday when the Jets traded Revis to the Bucs in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this weeks NFL draft and another selection next year.

PETERSBURG Matt Moore became the first Rays pitcher to win his first four starts of a season, Ryan Roberts homered twice and Tampa Bay beat CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees 5-1 on Monday night. Moore (4-0) allowed one run, two hits, three walks and had nine strikeouts over eight innings. Roberts connected in the first and third to help the Rays take an early 5-0 lead. Yankees infielder Kevin Youkilis, who left Saturdays game at Toronto with lower back stiffness, was a late scratch Monday after the back tightened up following batting practice. Sabathia (3-2) had a threegame winning streak end. The left-hander gave up five runs and seven hits over seven innings. Tampa Bay has won 12 of its last 14 home games against the Yankees dating back to July 2011. Kyle Farnsworth completed the two-hitter. The Rays took a 4-0 lead in the first. After Roberts hit a solo homer on an 0-2 pitch from Sabathia, Evan Longoria singled and scored on Sean Rodriguezs triple. Yunel Escobar then put Tampa Bay up 4-0 with a two-run shot. Roberts homered again in the third to make it 5-0. It was his third career multihomer game. Sabathia had given up just one homer over 28 innings in his four previous starts this season. Robinson Cano cut the deficit to 5-1 on a homer in the fourth inning, which was New Yorks first hit. The Yankees have homered in all nine of their road games this year, matching the teams longest streak since 2000. The second game of the series tonight has AL CY Young Award winner David Price (0-1) facing New Yorks Phil Hughes (0-2). The Rays have lost Prices four starts this season, which is the fifth time, and first since Tom Glavine in 1999, that a reigning Cy Young Award winners team has lost his first four starts. Revis introduced in Tampa Citrus claims county crown Beat Panthers, Pirates for flag football title J USTIN P LANTE CorrespondentLECANTO Two games, one champion. Monday night at Lecanto High School gave way to two intensely competitive flag football games with all three county teams vying for the same prize the right to be called county champs. The format was simple. Crystal River High School, after finishing the regular season with the best record, got the privilege of sitting out the first game of the day while the second and third seeds, Citrus and Lecanto, battled it out for the right to play in the final game of the year against the Pirates. Lecanto held the home field advantage and Crystal River would get to rest before the final game, but unfortunately for both teams, neither would really play a difference. It was the opportunistic offense of the Lady Canes and wideout Lindsay Connors four total touchdowns on the night that would crown Citrus as county champs, beating Lecanto 18-6 in the first game and Crystal River 25-12 in the second. The final score of the Lecanto-Citrus game is deceptive, with the majority of the game being played at a 6-0 stalemate in favor of the Lady Canes following an early touchdown reception by Connors. Lecantos ever-improving defense shut the Lady Canes down on every drive attempt in the first half following the initial score, forcing two interceptions in the process. Citrus defense found itself just as successful, forcing three first-half turnovers and a 3-andout.

B2 T UESDAY, A PRIL 23, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M AJOR L EAGUEB ASEBALL Associated PressBOSTON Mike Napoli hit a grand slam and drove in five runs, Will Middlebrooks busted out of a slump with a three-run homer and the Boston Red Sox rebounded from a doubleheader sweep by beating the Oakland Athletics 9-6 on Monday night. The Red Sox, swept by Kansas City in a split-doubleheader Sunday, scored three runs in the fourth and five in the fifth. Napolis fourth career slam keyed the five-run fifth and helped end Oaklands eightgame winning streak against Boston. The Athletics dropped their season-high fourth straight after being swept in a three-game series at the Tampa Bay Rays over the weekend. Oaklands winning streak against Boston was its longest in franchise history since the Philadelphia Athletics won eight in row in 1932. Felix Doubront (2-0) struggled with his control, but got the win on a night with wind chills in the 30s. He allowed three runs on three hits, walking five. He also threw two wild pitches and struck out eight in 6 2/3 innings. A.J. Griffin (2-1) was tagged for a career-worst nine runs seven earned and eight hits in four-plus innings. Dustin Pedroia went 0 for 5, ending his streak of reaching base safely in each of Bostons first 18 games. Trailing 2-1 in the fourth, the Red Sox jumped in front when the slumping Middlebrooks belted his homer. Napoli was hit by a pitch and Daniel Nava doubled down the left field line before Middlebrooks, just 4 for his last 43 since hitting three homers in Toronto on April 7, homered into the Green Monster seats. Chris Youngs sacrifice fly cut it to 4-3 in the fifth, but the Athletics left the bases loaded. Boston then broke it open with Napolis slam. Shane Victorino singled leading off and Pedroia reached on a fielders choice. Second baseman Andy Parrino dropped a throw at second trying to get a force on the play. David Ortiz then walked before Napoli hit an 0-1 pitch into the first row of Monster seats into deep left-center. Jarrod Saltalamacchia added an RBI double off reliever Chris Resop, making it 9-3.AMERICAN LEAGUE Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1 BALTIMORE Nick Markakis singled home the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Baltimore Orioles a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Toronto reliever Aaron Loup (1-2) began the ninth by hitting Chris Davis with a pitch. After a sacrifice bunt, Steve Pearce popped out and Nolan Reimold received an intentional walk before Alexi Casilla reached on a throwing error by shortstop Munenori Kawasaki that loaded the bases. Markakis then sliced an 0-2 pitch to the opposite field near the left-field line. Jim Johnson (1-1) worked a perfect ninth for the Orioles, now 5-2 on a nine-game homestand that ends Wednesday.Indians 3, White Sox 2 CHICAGO Asdrubal Cabrera hit a clutch two-run single in his return to the lineup and the Cleveland Indians used a throwing error by reliever Matt Thornton to rally for a 3-2 victory over the sloppy Chicago White Sox. Justin Masterson (4-1) pitched seven effective innings to help the Indians win their third straight. They have won three of four this season against the White Sox. Cleveland had runners on first and second with one out in the eighth when Thornton threw wildly to second while trying to pick off Drew Stubbs. Both runners moved up as the ball went into center field. Jason Kipnis struck out for the second out, but Cabrera hit a liner to center to give Cleveland a 3-2 lead. He clapped his hands as he rounded first following the big hit. Mariners 7, Astros 1HOUSTON Felix Hernandez pitched six scoreless innings for his 100th career win and Seattle homered three times to back him up in a 7-1 victory over the Houston Astros. Hernandez (2-2) reached the milestone in his fourth try to join Jamie Moyer (145) and Randy Johnson (130) as the only pitchers to reach 100 wins with the Mariners. Hernandez allowed five hits and struck out nine to lower his ERA to 2.08. Kyle Seager, Jesus Montero and Kendrys Morales all homered for the Mariners, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Rick Ankiel hit a solo homer for the Astros, who fell to 5-14 for the secondworst start in franchise history. They opened 4-20 in 1969, according to STATS.NATIONAL LEAGUE Cardinals 3, Nationals 2WASHINGTON Yadier Molina drove in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning, backing Shelby Millers strong start, and the St. Louis Cardinals returned to the site of their Game 5 NL division series victory last season with a 3-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. The other big hit for St. Louis was Allen Craigs two-run double in the third. Miller (3-1) struck out eight in 6 2/3 innings, allowing two runs and four hits. All the Cardinals runs came against Dan Haren (1-3), who gave up three runs and six hits in five-plus innings. Edward Mujica pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his second save. The Cardinals have alternated wins and losses over their last nine games. Washington has lost seven of 10.Phillies 3, Pirates 2 PHILADELPHIA Jimmy Rollins hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth, Jonathan Pettibone had an impressive major league debut and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2. Pettibone allowed two runs and six hits, striking out six in 5 1/3 innings. The righty was pulled after 83 pitches and didnt get a decision. Pedro Alvarez and Russell Martin hit solo homers for the Pirates. On a chilly night when the temperature dipped below 50 degrees, the Phillies scratched out their second straight win to improve to 9-11. Pirates starter A.J. Burnett gave up two runs and five hits, fanning seven in five innings. Jared Hughes (1-2) retired the first two batters he faced in the sixth before running into trouble.

S COREBOARD C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE more of the same out of the gate, but Citrus diverse attack would lead to two more passing touchdowns, another to Connors and one to receiver Paige Antonelli in the corner of the end zone. The Panthers would not go away easily. With just under two minutes left to play, Lecanto quarterback Veronica Hamilton found receiver Amanda Pitre open just behind Citrus coverage, and Pitre was off to the races from there. The pass, which was the longest play from scrimmage in any county game played this year, went for more than 60 yards and gave the Panthers their first touchdown of the season and a silver lining, as their season came to a close with the final buzzer. The win for the Lady Canes set up a highly anticipated rubber match against a Crystal River team that they, just one week ago, came to blows with following the game. The altercation left several Citrus and Crystal River players sidelined for the rest of the season. A quick interception return for a touchdown by Miller and a good extra point made it 7-0 Citrus within the first three minutes of the game. And on the very next play from scrimmage, Payton Wells stepped in front of another Casidy Newcomer pass to put Citrus right back into scoring range. Two plays later, Connors found herself again in the end zone, and just like that, the Pirates were staring at a 13-0 deficit with just over six minutes played. Those turnovers hurt us, Crystal River coach Ben Bennett said. We were having someone else step into offense; because we lost another one of our starters this morning, so that was something we werent used to. We just had a hard time clicking, and Citrus is quick, man. Following the two quick scores, the game evened out, with Crystal River putting itself on the board on the very next possession with a Jasmyne Eason jump-ball touchdown. The Lady Canes would score on two of the next four drives one of which took up nine minutes of the second quarter while Crystal River was held to just one more Eason touchdown. Connors, who scored four of her teams seven total touchdowns during the double header, was extremely happy with how her team kept focused, despite the events that unfolded following the previous meeting. We knew coming in that we would have to keep our heads up, she said. We needed to work hard, and make sure we play until the final horn, which is what we did. I think those first two touchdowns of the game were huge momentum swings, and we kind of just coasted off of that from there. The win made Citrus the first-ever county champs in a sport that is only just beginning to flourish in the area. Im excited that we got to be the inaugural team this year, Connors said. But it stinks that this is the only year I get to play. It was a lot of fun. Following the game, both head coaches had nothing but good things to say about the season, as well as their opposition. This season was awesome, Bennett said. The girls played great and, minus that bump at the end there, everything was fun. Citrus Coach Mary Kalbaugh was just as enthusiastic following the game. We really had no idea what to expect coming into this season, she said. But I think it went awesome. I know I had fun, and I think all of the girls had fun. Im sad its over, but we know there will be plenty of flag football played in the future. unique contract that includes no guaranteed money. The contract will take care of itself, he said. Ive just got to go out and play. The Buccaneers not only are banking on Revis to be physically ready to open the season in September against yes the Jets, but believe hes far enough long in his recovery to reasonably expect hell be able to get on the field for the start of training camp this summer. We did our due diligence, general manager Mark Dominik said, or else we wouldnt have made a deal of this magnitude. Revis was entering the final year of a contract that would have paid him $6 million in 2013, $10 million less than hell receive annually with Tampa Bay. His old contract also included a clause that would have prevented the Jets from using the franchise or transition tag on him next year. So rather than risk the chance of losing Revis as a free agent in 2014 without receiving as much compensation as the cornerback would have commanded now, the Jets decided to trade him. Tampa Bay, which was more than $32 million under the salary cap, was thought to be the most likely suitor. We felt it was one of those win-win situations for both organizations, Dominik said. The teams agreed to compensation last Thursday. Dominik then received permission to contact Revis agents to begin discussions on a long-term contract and eventually flew the cornerback to town for a physical on Sunday. Revis said he met Idzik for the first time last week and that the Jets GM told him he wanted the cornerback to remain in New York. Asked if he felt Idzik had been untruthful, Revis said: Yeah. ... I felt that type of vibe. At the same time, the seventh-year pro said hes not bitter about how his stay in New York ended. He admitted he felt some type of way when he learned the Jets were willing to trade him, but insisted hes not upset. Its over. It happens. Ive got to move on. Its a new chapter in my life, Revis said. I dont have a sour taste in my mouth. Not at all. Instead, the cornerback said hes focused on doing everything he can to get back on the field and help his new team. The Bucs, 7-9 a year ago, havent made the playoffs since 2007. They havent won a postseason game since winning their only Super Bowl in 2002. Revis hardly considers himself a savior. He said hes joining a talented team with a playoff-caliber roster even without him, citing quarterback Josh Freeman, receiver Vincent Jackson and running back Doug Martin by name. Jackson and Martin made the Pro Bowl last season, and Freeman is coming off a year in which he became Tampa Bays first 4,000-yard passer. I can go down the list of players we have on this team. We have some great guys. That was one of the things me and my (agents) looked at to be part of this organization. We have some guys who can already play, Revis said. And as for beginning the next phase of his career by returning to New York to face the Jets? Its going to be fun, he said, a smile spreading across his face. Its Week 1. You cant go around it, you cant go over it.

UCF wins NCAA appeal of bowl ban, eligible in 2013 ORLANDO The NCAA has granted Central Floridas appeal of a one-year postseason ban in football. The decision was announced Monday, which will make it bowl-eligible as it moves into the American Athletic Conference this season. In a release the NCAA wrote that its Committee on Infractions determined the football postseason ban is excessive such that it constitutes an abuse of discretion. UCFs was originally issued the ban as part of sanctions levied last July for major recruiting violations in football and basketball. It also received a one-year postseason ban in basketball, $50,000 fine, five years probation, reduction of basketball scholarships, and limits on football recruiting. The postseason ban was the lone penalty UCF appealed and allowed the Knights to participate in the Beef OBradys Bowl in 2012.NC man rolls 1st PBA 900 series at The VillagesTHE VILLAGES A North Carolina man has rolled the first 900 series in Professional Bowlers Association history three straight perfect games. Joe Scarborough of Charlotte opened the first round of qualifying in the PBA50 Sun Bowl on Sunday with three games of 300, throwing 36 consecutive strikes. Scarborough is a 50-year-old self-employed electrical contractor who was competing in his second event in the renamed PBA Senior Tour. The PBA said Norm Duke bowled three consecutive 300s in a standard PBA Tour event in 1996, but the performance didnt count as a 900 series because he ended one round with two perfect games and started the next round with the third. Scarborough said he was pretty surprised. He insists he wasnt nervous. Instead, he pretended he was at home practicing. From staff amd wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

B4 T UESDAY, A PRIL 23, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE S PORTS Associated PressNEW YORK Get me out of here. Maneuvering to move down in Thursday nights first round of the draft will be a common behind-the-scenes scramble. There simply are few franchisetype players teams will be enamored of, yet plenty of depth to make picking up extra picks later on a worthwhile strategy. The big bodies will dominate the opening round. Look for 17 of them to go in the top 32 at Radio City Music Hall. The mock draft presumes no trades (but 100 percent accuracy). 1. KANSAS CITY (2-14) The Chiefs already have their quarterback not that it is worth taking one at the top this year and a good running game. The guy who could be the cornerstone for the entire offense, as well as QB Alex Smiths protector for next few years, plays left tackle. LUKE JOECKEL, OT, TEXAS A&M 2. JACKSONVILLE (2-14) Unlike the Chiefs, the Jaguars are virtually devoid of talent everywhere. So anyone they choose will be an upgrade. Theres talk they could jettison Blaine Gabbert, their first-round pick two years ago, and go for Geno Smith at quarterback. Theyd love to trade down, but if not, theyll upgrade the pass rush and defensive athleticism instead. DION JORDAN, DE-OLB, OREGON 3. OAKLAND (4-12) By far the worst team in drafts over the last decade. But now theres a new regime under Reggie McKenzie, who learned his trade in Green Bay, one of the best drafting clubs of recent years. Like Jacksonville, Oakland could go anywhere with this pick, but is less likely to look to move down. ERIC FISHER, OT, CENTRAL MICHIGAN 4. PHILADELPHIA (4-12) The Chip Kelly no-holdsbarred, breakneck offense needs speedy playmakers, something the Eagles already have. What they dont have: enough bigtime defenders. They go for a huge one in ... SHARRIF FLOYD, DT, FLORIDA 5. DETROIT (4-12) Coming off a distressing collapse in which they gave up 437 points, the Lions must find a way to close the wide-open door to their end zone. Theyre fortunate to have several options here, and go for the pass rusher. ZIGGY ANSAH, DE, BYU 6. CLEVELAND (5-11) After holding their breath that the cornerback they seek will be on the board the previous three teams all have a need there the Browns can exhale and call the name ... DEE MILLINER, CB, ALABAMA 7. ARIZONA (5-11) If they cant trade down, the Cardinals wont have to swallow hard to upgrade their offensive line with a proven winner and another Crimson Tide player. CHANCE WARMACK, G, ALABAMA 8. BUFFALO (6-10) Every team puts up smoke screens before the draft. And the Bills sure seem to have polluted the air with them because we think they arent convinced Kevin Kolb or Tarvaris Jackson is more than a backup or fillin QB. So the first quarterback off the board is ... GENO SMITH, QB, WEST VIRGINIA 9. NEW YORK JETS (6-10) Having finally dealt Darrelle Revis, the Jets could look at a cornerback here, perhaps FSUs Xavier Rhodes. And, yes, they might have considered Smith. But someone who can get to the quarterback from the outside is a must for Rex Ryans defense. BARKEVIOUS MINGO, DE-OLB, LSU 10. TENNESSEE (6-10) The Titans sang a sour song on defense all through 2012, so its time to fix some of that in Music City. They might look at the offensive line, but their needs are so hefty on D, and there are lots of solid prospects on the board. Such as ... JARVIS JONES, LB, GEORGIA 11. SAN DIEGO (7-9) Another team starting over after the talent base was erased by ill-advised moves in the last few years. New coach Mike McCoy is offense-minded, and he sees all the holes on the line. LANE JOHNSON, OT, OKLAHOMA 12. MIAMI (7-9) After the Dolphins made so many splashes in free agency, they can afford to fill a void, especially when one of the better offensive linemen still is available. JONATHAN COOPER, G, NORTH CAROLINA 13. NEW YORK JETS (6-10) They didnt miss on Rhodes, but they will consider an offensive playmaker here such as Tavon Austin or DeAndre Hopkins. In the end, the back end on defense will be the target, and because this seems too high to take a safety, New York grabs ... XAVIER RHODES, CB, FLORIDA STATE 14. CAROLINA (7-9) The Panthers will be tempted to go back to the big guys. Then they will spot the little guy with the gamebreaking skills on kick returns, as a receiver and even perhaps in a version of the wildcat. They cant resist ... TAVON AUSTIN, WR, WEST VIRGINIA 15. NEW ORLEANS (7-9) The Saints will take about 10 seconds of their allotted time to write down their pick, instantly improving their pass rush with a guy with good feel for getting to the quarterback and plenty of upside. BJOERN WERNER, DE, FLORIDA STATE 16. ST. LOUIS (7-8-1) St. Louis would have liked a shot at Austin receiver definitely is a need and could go for one here. But with another pick coming up soon where they can get a pass catcher, the Rams opt for the best safety in this draft. KENNY VACCARO, S, TEXAS 17. PITTSBURGH (8-8) As the Steelers keep insisting they are not a team in transition, one look at the roster says otherwise. Free agency losses hurt them, and they lack the depth theyve had in their contending seasons. The first upgrade this year is ... STAR LOTULELEI, DT, UTAH 18. DALLAS (8-8) They would have loved Vaccaro in their secondary. The Rams spoiled that, and the Cowboys consider bolstering their backfield and offensive line before taking the best man still unclaimed. SYLVESTER WILLIAMS, DT, NORTH CAROLINA 19. NEW YORK GIANTS (9-7) As the noise in the theater reaches a crescendo, with chants from blue-shirted Giants fans of MAN-TI, MANTI, the Giants indeed fill their need for an inside linebacker with good instincts, passion and leadership skills. ARTHUR BROWN, ILB, KANSAS STATE 20. CHICAGO (10-6) There wont be as much noise when the Bears step up. There will be the same need for a linebacker, especially with Brian Urlacher gone. They find their man in Athens, Ga., a player who could play inside or outside. ALEC OGLETREE, LB, GEORGIA 21. CINCINNATI (10-6) With the Andre Smith free agency situation still cloudy do the Bengals really want him back? Cincinnati makes a move to put pressure on the veteran. Or to let him walk. D.J. FLUKER, OT, ALABAMA 22. ST. LOUIS (10-6) pick from Washington Wisely, the Rams went with Vaccaro at No. 16 and still get the wideout to boost their passing game at this spot. DEANDRE HOPKINS, WR, CLEMSON 23. MINNESOTA (10-6) With two selections in the next three slots, Minnesota is going to help itself on defense both times. First up, yes, the Vikings see plenty of value in that Notre Dame linebacker. MANTI TEO, ILB, NOTRE DAME 24. INDIANAPOLIS (11-5) Seeking a pass rusher to replace Dwight Freeney, the Colts look at Damontre Moore of Texas A&M, Datrone Jones of UCLA and Alex Okafor of Texas. Moore is most ready to step in. DAMONTRE MOORE, DE, TEXAS A&M 25. MINNESOTA (10-6) pick from Seattle More help for the interior defense in a real bargain this late in the first round. Although the Vikes are tempted to go for a wideout, they see excellent value in ... SHELDON RICHARDSON, DT, MISSOURI 26. GREEN BAY (11-5) The Packers never expected to be in this position, choosing between the best running back in this crop, the two best tight ends or an effective defensive tackle who never stops coming. Does the question become which helps Aaron Rodgers more, a pass catcher or a running back? TYLER EIFERT, TE, NOTRE DAME 27. HOUSTON (12-4) Houston has a very obvious need: finding a receiver to complement the superb but aging Andre Johnson. That void has been a major reason the Texans flopped in the playoffs the last two years. There are three possible choices for that position, and the answer is ... CORDARRELLE PATTERSON, WR, TENNESSEE 28. DENVER (13-3) Getting past the Elvis Dumervil error that made him a free agent will be a whole lot easier when the Broncos find a nice replacement and a surprise firstrounder who impressed with 4 1-2 sacks in the Alamo Bowl. ALEX OKAFOR, DE, TEXAS 29. NEW ENGLAND (12-4) Predicting anything Bill Belichick will do, other than scowl or wear a hoodie, is impossible. Clearly, the Patriots need help virtually everywhere on defense, although they should be a runaway winner in the AFC East even if they skip all their picks. Now that would be different for Belichick. MATT ELAM, S, FLORIDA 30. ATLANTA (13-3) After giving lots of thought to Alabama RB Eddie Lacy, Atlanta backs off and turns to a defensive unit damaged in the offseason by cuts and defections. With visions of defending Brees and Newton twice a season, they go for ... DESMOND TRUFANT, CB, WASHINGTON 31. SAN FRANCISCO (11-4-1) The Niners almost won the Super Bowl, and they are loaded heading into the draft. So much so that they dont have to flinch about grabbing the best guy on their board. No selection for need here. JESSE WILLIAMS, DT, ALABAMA 32. BALTIMORE (10-6) The 2013 Ravens already dont resemble the team that won the championship. Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Anquan Boldin, Dannell Ellerbe, Paul Kruger and Bernard Pollard all gone. But GM Ozzie Newsome is one of the best talent evaluators around. Hell get this pick right.

The Red Wings moved within a point of eighthplace Columbus in the Western Conference. Theyre hoping to extend the franchises postseason streak to 22 years. Damien Brunner scored late in the first period and Valtteri Filppula had a power-play goal late in the second. Jets 2, Sabres 1BUFFALO, N.Y. Antti Miettinen scored with 7:36 left to keep the surging Winnipeg Jets in the playoff race with a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 24 shots. Winnipeg moved within a point of the idle New York Rangers, who hold the Eastern Conferences eighth and final playoff spot.Penguins 3, Senators 1 OTTAWA Tomas Vokoun made 34 saves and Dustin Jeffrey had a goal and an assist to lead the Pittsburgh Penguins to their seventh straight victory, 3-1 over the Ottawa Senators.

Head and neck cancer check: Jim Paynes story C HARLES L AWRENCE For the ChronicleC itrus Springs resident and community center aide Jim Payne is a survivor of head and neck cancer. He was first diagnosed in February 2012 after seeing an ear, nose and throat specialist when he felt an irritation in his throat and food began to take on a different taste. Doctors initially misdiagnosed him with strep throat. A biopsy at the base of his tongue revealed a tumor. Payne was immediately referred to the Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute in Lecanto for radiation and chemotherapy treatment. He received 33 radiation treatments, twice a day and three chemotherapy treatments. Payne was diagnosed two weeks after coming back from his honeymoon. Eventually he was fed through a feeding tube, lost his voice, couldnt swallow, and lost a significant amount of weight. Payne was out of work for about seven months while he underwent treatment as the therapy made him very weak. Its common in heavy drinkers and smokers, but Im not either one of those, he said. Paynes wife, Monica, said that finding out he had cancer was shocking at first. It was terrible to watch him go through it, she said. When he had to get fed through a feeding tube, it was really scary. He was dehydrated and couldnt swallow. Even when he was able to eat on his own, it took an hour to eat breakfast. According to Payne, his type of cancer is 90 percent curable if you get screened early. Get checked out if you have any symptoms that concern you, Payne said. The last time I had a CAT and PET scan, everything was clear, he said. So, apparently, no cancer.

It helps us detect early cancers, which are lot more curable than advanced cancer. This is done routinely for many cancers, e.g. breast cancer, cervical cancer, colon cancer or prostate cancer. New evidence suggests screening spiral CT scan in lung cancer also helps and should be done in heavy smokers or former smokers. For every screening there is a common problem. We need to screen a S tress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem many women endure. The symptom is uncontrolled loss of urine with increased abdominal pressure due to coughing, laughing, lifting or standing from a sitting position. The problem is related to the weakened urethral sphincter or the pelvic floor muscles that support the bladder. It has been estimated that almost 15 million women in the U.S. are affected and is severe enough to affect the lifestyle in a third of the patients. Many women do not seek medical attention, as they consider the condition a normal part of aging or normal result of childbirth. But the condition does not have to be accepted as normal, and many treatments are available to alleviate the symptoms. Pelvic floor strengthening using Kegel exercises have been known to improve mild to moderate stress incontinence. When conservative treatments for stress incontinence fail or are inadequate, surgeons usually rely on minimally invasive sling procedures that use a narrow, hammock-like mesh placed using a small vaginal incision. The surgery carries a high success rate, but may not be suitable for all patients. Some older patients who are frail, patients who have failed previous surgery or those that are unable to have general or spinal anesthesia may have a new alternative in the form of a an Alternative to surgery for stress urinary incontinence See KUMAR / Page C4 Section C TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE INSIDE Dr. Frank Vascimini / Page C3 Dr. Richard Hoffmann / Page C3 Dr. C.

Younger adults are also at great risk because of an increase in a virus called HPV, or Human Papillomavirus, which is a cancer-causing viral infection that is transmitted by oral sex. Often, the lesions associated with oral cancer can go unchecked, however there are some things that should make one more concerned, such as an ulcer or sore in your mouth that does not heal and completely go away and/or increases in size. A persistent, unexplainable pain in your mouth, neck and ear; the latter of which is usually because some nerves that serve the throat also serve the ear, and ear pain is typically a referred type of pain, and not because the ear is involved. Lumps, bumps or white or red patches inside the mouth, tongue and throat can be signs, as well. Functional signs, such as difficulty breathing, speaking, chewing and/or swallowing can occur. Soreness, or raw sensation in the throat can also be an indicator, as well as changes in ones voice or a lump sensation in the throat. A lump or bump on the neck could indicate an enlargement of a lymph node that could be directly related to a cancerous growth in the throat should be treated very seriously. As with any type of disease, early diagnosis and treatment greatly increases your chances of having a good outcome and surviving the disease. So remember, when you are at the doctor or dentist, ask him to check your oral cavity to make sure that everything looks good. If you think you have any of the previously mentioned symptoms and/or warning signs, seek medical attention as soon as possible, particularly if you have any of the previously mentioned risk factors.

H EALTH& L IFE C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE T UESDAY, A PRIL 23, 2013 C3 Partial dentures possible Q : I have no molars on the top. My six front teeth on the top are crowned, with root canals. However, on one of the front ones, the actual tooth beneath the crown is breaking. Is it possible to get an upper partial with the back teeth and only one front tooth? I do not want to have to pull the other five that are crowned. Thank you. A: This is a very good question. The simple answer to your question is, yes. However, as with many things, you could have circumstances that could make the answer, maybe, or even no. If all of your front teeth are separate from each other it is easy to remove the problem tooth and make a partial around the others. However, there are many times that six crowns in the front of the mouth are what we call, splinted (or joined together in one piece). If this is the case and there was good enough reason to hold on to all of the remaining teeth, the dentist could section the problem tooth from the splinted ones and remove the tooth along with the crown. This can be a very difficult thing to do, and in most cases, the dentist will not guarantee the success because during the sectioning process porcelain can be broken away from the rest of the bridge, leaving an unsightly result to work with. This being said, if time is taken and things are not rushed, more often than not, the result is successful. But what happens if some of those other teeth are not worth the effort? Maybe they are at risk of being lost soon, or there is decay, or even an abscess. Depending on the particular circumstances your dentist will give you his or her opinion. It will be your decision on what you should do from that point. Again, if things are explained in detail you will usually get a feel for how successful your dentist thinks things will turn out. I would love to tell you the answer is a definite yes; however, you can see that it is important to see your dentist so that he or she can assess the situation and give you your options. If you are a regular reader of this column you already know this: Be sure to listen to your dentist and ask whatever questions you need the answer to in order to make a good decision. Communication is everything, especially in a situation like yours. I hope this has helped you. Good luck. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

What about temporary tattoos? A: This is a timely question and the FDA has recently (2013) provided some useful information for consumers regarding the safety of temporary tattoos. Temporary tattoos typically last from three days to several weeks, depending on the product used for coloring and the condition of the skin. Unlike permanent tattoos, which are injected into the skin, temporary tattoos marketed as henna are applied to the skins surface. Temporary, however, does not mean risk-free. Some consumers report reactions that may be severe and long outlast the temporary tattoos themselves. MedWatch, the FDAs safety information and adverse event (bad side effects) reporting program, has received reports of serious and long-lasting reactions that consumers had not bargained for after getting temporary tattoos. Reported problems include redness, blisters, raised red weeping lesions, loss of pigmentation, increased sensitivity to sunlight and even permanent scarring. Some reactions have led people to seek medical care, including visits to hospital emergency rooms. Reactions may occur immediately after a person gets a temporary tattoo, or even up to two or three weeks later. A number of consumers have learned the risks the hard way, reporting significant bad reactions shortly after the application of black henna temporary tattoos. The parents of a 5-yearold girl reported she developed severe reddening on her forearm about two weeks after receiving a black henna temporary tattoo. The mother of a 17-yearold girl reported the temporary tattoo became red and itchy and later began to blister and the blisters filled with fluid. And another mother, whose teenager had no reaction to red henna tattoos, described the skin on her daughters back as blistered and raw after a black henna tattoo was applied there. She reported that, according to her daughters doctor, the teenager will have scarring for life. If you have a reaction to or concern about a temporary tattoo or any other cosmetic, in addition to recommending you contact your health care professional, the FDA asks you to contact MedWatch, the agencys problem-reporting program. You can also call 800-FDA1088 to report by telephone, or contact the nearest FDA consumer complaint coordinator in your area.

Dr. Tim Brant, a radiation oncologist with the Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute, said the biggest types of risk factors associated with head and neck cancer are heavy tobacco use, heavy drinking and being infected with the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), the most common being heavy drinking and smoking. According to the National Cancer Institute at the NIH, other risk factors for head and neck cancer are occupational exposure to wood dust and people who work in construction, metal, textile, ceramic, logging and food industries are also at increased risk for this type of cancer. Its a disease that occurs in adults and is almost never seen in children, Brant said. According to Dr. Brant, head and neck cancer symptoms to look out for are sores in the mouth that could or could not be painful and that wont heal, difficulty swallowing, unexplained ear pain, or a neck mass. Head and neck cancer represents any cancer that is above the voice box; in the oral cavity, which includes the tongue, gums and voice box. The cancer is initially diagnosed by seeing or feeling the cancer either with a mirror or a scope, Brant said. As terrible as treatment is, hes cancer free and alive. Its all worth it to catch it early, get treated and get well, Monica Payne said.

injectable therapy using a bulking agent for the urethra. In this minimally invasive treatment, a synthetic material is injected into the urethral wall to increase the resistance to urine leak by improving the sealing mechanism. Cystoscopy or telescopic examination of the bladder is needed to visualize the correct site for the injection, but this can be done under local anesthesia, making this a simple and safe procedure. The injection therapy may also be offered to patients who are wary of mesh slings or young patients who are not finished with family planning and may require pelvic floor surgery in the future. While injection therapies for stress incontinence have been used for more than a decade, the bulking agents used have changed over time, and the search has continued for agents with minimal morbidity and lasting efficacy. The recent introduction of Coaptite (calcium hydroxyapatite) as a urethral bulking agent has given a welcome boost to the armamentarium of minimally invasive therapies available for SUI. As stated earlier, the injection of Coaptite is performed under local anesthesia with cystoscopy. Sometimes, more than one sitting is required. Patients may experience some difficulty with emptying their bladder, but this is almost always temporary. The procedure takes only a few minutes to perform. Some patients may require a temporary urethral catheter. Coaptite injection for urethral bulking is an excellent minimally invasive alternative to surgery for patients who are unable to have general or spinal anesthesia or who have failed or do not wish to have the sling procedure for stress urinary incontinence. It is particularly attractive to the elderly, frail patient who desires to have the least invasive procedure with a good success rate. Udaya Kumar. M.D., FRCS Urol, Dip.

The congressman was interested, engaged, asked important questions and was great with our residents, said Craig Greiner, NHVs administrator. Were appreciative of the time he spent to learn who we are and what we do at NHV. Nugent visited one of NHVs six residences, the 9,000-squarefoot Learning Center, and was shown the nurses office and recreation center. The people we serve at NHV are among the most vulnerable members of our society, Scott Greiner said. Were appreciative Rep. Nugent wanted to know more about us. He seemed particularly impressed with how weve blended a neighborhoodlike setting and atmosphere with the social, educational, psychological and medical services needed by our residents. The visit resulted from Nugents desire to see the facility personally after receiving an invitation from Greiner. Nugent represents Floridas 11th congressional district.

Yes, guys, no benefit seen for us, but we are still looking. But this research, along with many other discoveries, keeps pointing to the benefits of daily aspirin therapy if you can participate yes, again, talk to your doctor, many medications, especially blood thinners, will interact in a potentially deadly fashion with aspirin, so never start an aspirin regimen without discussing it with your primary care physician. In an effort to assess the correlation between aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use and melanoma risk, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Cancer Institute in California used data for 59,806 postmenopausal Caucasian women aged 50 to 79 years from the Womens Health Initiative Observational Study. Yes, again guys, they just studied the women. During a median followup of 12 years, the researchers identified 548 confirmed melanomas. Compared with nonusers, aspirin users had a significantly reduced risk of melanoma. For each categorical increase in duration of aspirin use less than one year, one to four years, and five or more years the risk of melanoma was 11 percent lower for five or more years of use. There was no correlation for non-aspirin NSAID or acetaminophen use with melanoma, meaning that the use of Aleve (naproxen), Advil (ibuprofen) or Tylenol (acetaminophen) did not show any value in lowering the risk of melanoma. So to summarize, the current results indicate postmenopausal Caucasian women who used aspirin had a significantly lower risk of melanoma, and increased duration of use was associated with greater protection against melanoma, with those who took a daily aspirin for more than five years having the lowest risk of melanoma. These findings suggest aspirin may have a chemopreventive effect against the development of melanoma, and further clinical investigation is warranted. Hopefully, this further research will include men and other races of the population, as well. But in the meantime, this is just one more reason to sit down with your primary care physician, and discuss the pros and cons of taking a daily aspirin regimen. Dr. C.

Also when we find a problem, it may or may not be cancer and may require further testing including more Xrays or sometimes surgery. Newly identified genetic variants could revolutionize cancer screening by distinguishing people at highest risk for certain cancers from people at lowest risk. The largest study of its kind to date has identified 80 genetic variants that substantially raise the risk for breast and prostate cancer and, to a lesser extent, ovarian cancer. The massive project, led by researchers from Cambridge University and the Institute of Cancer Research, involved more than 1,000 scientists in 100 international research groups working together for four years. More than 200,000 individual samples (100,000 from cancer patients, 100,000 from control subjects) underwent DNA analysis; most of the samples were blood, but some were saliva. This was published in multiple journals. A clinical test developed on the basis of this research will likely be available in four to five years, predicted coauthor Ros Eeles, M.A., MBBS, Ph.D., professor of oncogenetics at the Institute of Cancer Research, at the press conference. The technology is relatively straightforward and not expensive (about per test, or $45) according to her. The test would identify people who have genetic variants that increase their risk for breast, prostate, and ovarian cancer. However, this information would have to be put into the wider context of an individuals health and lifestyle, so the best place for it would be within primary care, she explained. The biggest impact of this research is in prostate cancer. Of the genetic variants identified, 30 increase the risk for prostate cancer, and 16 of these are associated with aggressive disease. Currently screening PSA detects early prostate cancer but unfortunately, its value is controversial. This is because screening PSA detects many low-grade cancers, which would not have hurt the patient and the treatment can be worse than the disease. If we can detect genetically patients who are likely to have aggressive disease, it can really help. This genetic variant can identify the 1 in 100 man who is at risk of aggressive prostate cancer. In this select group, the risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer is 50 percent. We can treat them very aggressively and help those men. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Fourth annual Crystal River Boat Bash celebrates crafts, history, education T he Citrus County American Irish Clubs presentation of Forever Irish, starring the return of Andy Cooney, his band and the Irish Sopranos, was a sensation. Held at the Curtis Peterson Auditorium in Lecanto, it was a sea of green with Cooney fans, one and all, dressed in Irish green, singing along, clapping in time, celebrating their Irish heritage on St. Patricks Day. Cooney, a Carnegie Hall performer whose concerts are sellouts in New York, thrilled the Citrus County audience with his vast range of Irish favorites. A musician, songwriter and dynamic vocalist, he has scores of Citrus County fans. We welcomed the addition of the Irish Sopranos Sarah Bass, Gillian Quinn and Annemarie Gilman this year. Comprising lyric, coloratura and dramatic soprano, the groups harmonic texture were a distinct hit embracing Broadway, pop and opera. It was music of their homeland at its Irish finest. Cooneys Irish Band was led by Brian Moran, guitarist, Matthew Fisher on flute and whistles, percussionist Jimmy Kelly and guitarist Colm Graham. The Darrah Carr Dance ensemble amazed us with their combination of traditional Irish step-dancing and contemporary modern dance. Irish music lends itself to their particular style with fast-paced Irish step-dance footwork with spatial patterns to dazzle us with their high-energy rhythm. Appearing worldwide since 1998, the ensemble of artists drew repeated spontaneous applause. The annual Irish concerts afford the Irish Club the opportunity to grant scholarships to local high school students. Opening with Galway Bay Girl and Ill Take You Home Again, Kathleen, Cooney had the audience mesmerized from start to finish, with his special Irish unbeatable charm. The step-dancing Darrah Carr Dance group appeared next in colorful Irish costumes. From New York, the group appears annually in festivals throughout New England, Ohio and West Virginias Goose Route Dance Festival. Cooneys personal sharing time endeared him to the audience as he sang That Daughter of Mine. Band members were introduced. Hailing from the New York areas of Brooklyn, Albany and New York City, they were given an opportunity to shine on guitar, sax, drums and keyboard. My personal favorite was Cooney and Brian Morans performance of You Raised Me Up with to more than I can be lines still lingering in memory. The Darrah Carr Dance group returned with a stellar performance of The Stolen Kiss from The Lord of the Dance. The Irish Sopranos, making their American debut this tour, thrilled us with Somewhere Over The Rainbow and a Galway medley, Alive Oh, Irish Freedom and the enchanting Gloria Oh! The Lady of Nor, written after Pope Paul visited Ireland, and Ireland, Ireland, Come Together, Stand Tall garnered a standing ovation from the audience. Flute artistry dominated the Dancing Till the Break of Dawn piece and Dancing All Night Long featured the step-dancing group with Cooney playfully joining them as the audience clapped to the beat of their rhythm. After intermission, we enjoyed the set highlighting each instrument including the dancers and a traditional Irish jig. It was fun, fun, fun as they performed Finiculi, Finicula and an Irish round with many, many verses. Cooney was adept at Irish stories about Murphy and A Lady in Red, The Arch Bishop of Galway, and the one about sister Mary Margaret in the shower when a blind man rang the door bell was particularly hilarious when we learned that he was a blinds salesman. We were invited to join in on the chorus as Cooney serenaded us with He won the Heart of a Lady, encouraging us to sway in our seats. The poignant personal Cooney story, Grandfathers Immigrant Time, his own American story of his ancestors, reminded many of their ancestors humble beginnings. Donegal, a classic guitar piece, was performed as it appears on their Mosaic Heart album. Having sung with James Rodriguez and Michael Alante, first responders with the military protection team, Cooney, accompanied by the keyboard and drums, performed the hauntingly beautiful I Wont Turn My Back on You in honor of the Towers to Towers Foundation and the annual Five K Run to benefit returning soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan. Into the audience Cooney came as we enthusiastically clapped along and the group performed McNamaras Band, When Irish Eyes Are Smiling. Proclaiming, Now it feels like St. Patricks Day, Cooney closed out yet another Irish concert with The Holy City, written by the composer of Danny Boy, and Danny Boy, a fathers lament to his son as they parted, and we, in turn, said farewell to Andy Cooney, Irish Americas favorite son, Irish showman extraordinaire. The entire cast assembled on stage and bid us farewell with America, I Hear You, meriting resounding applause and a welldeserved standing ovation.

Richard Cobden, a 19th-century English politician, said, A newspaper should be the maximum of information and the minimum of comment. If you get the maximum of information at the bridge table and use it wisely, you will make the minimum of errors. First, though, lets look at the auction. What should South bid on the second round? He should rebid two hearts, guaranteeing at least a six-card suit and 12-14 points, a minimum opening. With only five hearts, South would show a second suit, bid no-trump, or raise spades (perhaps with only three). Then North, knowing about an eight-card fit, raises to four hearts. (Note that four spades by North fails if East leads a low diamond and West shifts to the club jack.) After West leads the club jack, what should South do? First, he should count losers by looking at his 13 cards and taking dummys winners into account. He has four: one spade, two diamonds and one club. Second, he counts winners. Here, he enjoys 10: two spades, six hearts, one diamond and one club. So, he can get home as long as he does not lose four tricks. To eliminate that spade loser, declarer must establish his diamond winner. Suppose South tries dummys club queen, captures Easts king with his ace, draws trumps, and leads a diamond. The defenders can win, cash a club, and shift to spades, but South wins in his hand and plays another diamond. With the spade ace still in the dummy, he has 10 winners.

These amazing kids do everything from collecting stuffed animals for children who are victims of tragedy to creating sustainable gardens in urban communities. All of these remarkable youth have a common goal: to raise awareness and solve the problems facing the world today. To celebrate their ingenuity, idealism and passion, please remind your readers that the 25th Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) will take place April 26 to 28, 2013. Last year, young people around the world came together and participated in nearly 4,500 projects. Additionally, thousands of community partners in more than 106 countries brought together millions of young people to strengthen their communities through the power of youth service. For more information, your readers can visit www.GYSD.org. Sincerely Steven A. Culbertson President and CEO Youth Service America Dear Steven Culbertson: Thanks so much for letting us once again mention Global Youth Service Day. Young people all over the world do such fantastic and helpful volunteer work, not only on this day, but every day of the year. Global Youth Service Day provides more opportunities for everyone to get involved. We hope all of our readers, young and old, teachers and students, will check out your website. Dear Annie : My husband is 75 and seems fit and able. The problem is, he likes to fix the doors to our pool cage in the open position. The first time he did it, I went ballistic, pointing out the liability: There are children in this neighborhood who could wander in and easily drown in our pool. I said I would leave if he did it again. Yesterday, he did it again. So, Im thinking he wants me to leave. What recourse do I have when my husband seems mentally fit but begins to exhibit such terrible behaviors? Im fairly sure he would pass a mental competency test, if I could get him to take one. Is this abuse? Should I find a lawyer? How do I do that? Sarasota, Fla. Dear Sarasota : This doesnt sound like abuse, but we agree that your husband may not be as mentally competent as he outwardly appears. Does your local police department or neighborhood association issue fines for leaving pool gates open? If so, report your husband and ask them to give him a citation. You also could purchase a new lock to which only you have the key. Then talk to your husband and ask whats going on. If he wants you to leave, you can find a lawyer through your state or county bar association. But also, please suggest he get a complete checkup. Dear Annie: Disgusted was annoyed with charities that send little gifts to guilt him into sending money. Here are my suggestions: Always check a charitys privacy policy before you donate. Some of the best charities sell their mailing lists. Do NOT give your name and address if you dont know their privacy policy. If you want to donate, send a money order. They still get the donation, you still get a tax receipt, and you maintain your privacy. Check with Charity Navigator (charitynavigator.org) to find out how much of a charitys money goes toward its purpose as compared to administrative costs. If the charity includes a stamped envelope, fold up every piece of paper they sent, cram it in there and put the following message near your name: Delete this address from your mailing list. Do not sell, trade, share or otherwise distribute this address with any other mailing list. We spent a lot of time and effort cleaning up my motherin-laws mail. For every worthwhile charity she donated to, there were about a dozen scummy ones. Good charities are out there, but be cautious.

Pauline Barber, who lives in the Inverness Highlands, is in her 80s, as are several of her neighbors. Im handicapped and use a cane, and I know my capabilities, and I know its not going to work, she said concerning the 96and 64-gallon containers that Waste Management will be delivering to every Inverness city resident beginning next week. Even though the containers have handles and wheels, Barber said she fears she wont be able to maneuver them. My driveway is on a slant, she said. Even with my smaller garbage can, I have trouble pushing or pulling it. When I have something thats heavy, like kitty litter, I put it in my car and drive to the end of my driveway to set out the bag. She said if she and her elderly neighbors are concerned, then there are certainly other elderly or disabled city residents who also have similar fears, especially because this program doesnt have an opt-out provision. What are we supposed to do? she asked. Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said prior to implementing the new program, city staff and representatives from Waste Management discussed the demographics of city residents, including age, mobility and dexterity. The program is used in hundreds or thousands of large and small communities across America, so its not new, DiGiovanni said. We also expected to hear that people have concerns. The carts are not cumbersome and are designed for balance and to Inverness to address recycling concerns Elderly and disabled residents worry that new waste receptacles might be too hard to move See RECYCLING/ Page A2 BROOKEPERRY For the ChronicleIn an effort to promote healthier lifestyles in children, the United Way of Citrus County is sponsoring a Kids Triathlon, open for families with children ages 5 to 15. United Way of Citrus County board member Linda VanAllen had the idea to create the event in order to get younger people to start exercising in a fun way; triathlons are common fitness competitions for athletes of all ages, so why not get an early start? We are all very excited about this, VanAllen said. We feel like getting kids up and out of the house to get moving is important to work toward a healthier lifestyle. BROOKEPERRY For the ChronicleNow that her training wheels are off, 7-yearold Kayla Duncan is ready to take on her first-ever triathlon. The Inverness resident will be competing in the junior division of the Kids Triathlon at Whispering Pines Park on May 11. Shes very competitive, her father, Chris Duncan, said. This is going to be great for her. Mr. Duncan found out about the race through family friend Linda VanAllen and soon after, registered his daughter for the event. Kayla loves being active. Shes been riding her four-wheeler since she was 5 and she just started riding dirt bikes at her grandmothers house. Her interest in MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Citrus Memorial Health System has rolled out a new website that officials hope will expand the hospitals market share. CMHS spokeswoman Katie Mehl said the new site updates the old one. To view it, go to www.citrusmh.com. Mehl told the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation at its meeting Monday that research showed 80 percent of Internet users are looking for health care information. Many people have a smartphone that allows Internet access and the hospitals old site wasnt available by smartphone. Our new website is mobile-friendly, she said. She said she received feedback and suggestions from a focus group, which pointed out the difficulty of going from one department to another, and back to the home page. They hated our navigation, she said. The new site allows for easier navigation. It also includes photos of actual hospital staffers, such as doctors and nurses. Another big change: The hospitals phone number and directions are at the top of the home page rather than the bottom. Mehl said the hospital also has a presence on Twitter and Facebook.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Several groups on Monday criticized language in an elections bill that they say would make it more difficult for some minority, disabled and elderly voters to cast ballots. A provision in the wideranging bill wouldnt allow voters to use assistants to cast ballots if they didnt previously know them. Also, nobody could assist more than 10 voters per election. That means people who cant read English, are blind, have a disability or have trouble voting for any other reason wouldnt be able to ask for help from trained volunteers at the polls unless they already know them. This is again not about whats best for Floridas elections, but its politicians getting in the way of solutions for democracy, said Gihan Perera, executive director of Florida New Majority, a group that advocates for minorities. Lawmakers are considering wide-ranging changes to Floridas election laws in the wake of problems with long lines and counting delays in the 2012 election. That follows changes that the Republican-led Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott made in 2011 cutting the number of early voting days, taking away the option of early voting on the Sunday before the election and making it more difficult for people whove recently moved to vote with a regular ballot. Democrats and civil rights groups accused Republicans of making those changes in an effort to restrict the votes of minorities and younger people who tend to support Democratic candidates. After the 2012 election and the national criticism that followed, Republicans are now proposing several changes they say will make voting easier, such as allowing more early voting days and polling locations. Counties also will have the option of conducting early voting the Sunday before the election, when many black churches organize Souls to the Polls voting drives. But voting wont be easier for people who cant read English or have a disability that requires them to need help at the polls, said Perera, who was joined on a news conference call with representatives from the NAACP, the civil rights group Advancement Project, a union that represents service workers and the Florida Immigrant Coalition. The language was placed in the bill by Republican Sen. Jack Latvala of Palm Harbor, chairman of the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee. The groups said trained voting assistants helped thousands of people vote in the last election, and the demand for help in some communities, such as Haitian-American neighborhoods, exceeded the ability to provide it. The Latvala amendment is only the latest in a long history of Florida policies that make it harder to vote, said Katherine CullitonGonzalez, Advancement Projects director of voter protection. Theyve been getting worse over time. She said Desiline Victor, the 102-year-old Miami woman who President Barack Obama pointed out as a symbol of early voting obstacles in his State of the Union address, used an assistant when she voted. dirt bikes isnt surprising considering her dad won a state championship in Arkansas in the sport. The girl also has a several years of swimming under her belt and practices her running skills on the Inverness Primary School playground. Really, Im excited for the biking, Kayla said. I just learned how to ride my bike; Im really good at swimming, too. Hoping the triathlon is an annual event, Chris Duncan would encourage any active child to participate. He agrees that the individual aspect of the race puts out a different experience for those used to participating in team sports, which is a good thing. With the lengths they have set up, I think its very do-able for the kids, he said. I think its a great thing for kids to get involved with something of that nature. Im really looking forward to it. The event is USA Triathlon-approved and will take place at Whispering Pines Park on Saturday, May 11. There will be three age divisions and age groups will then be split up within them: the junior division, which includes ages 5 to 10, will be required to swim three laps, bike 1.25 miles, and run half a mile. The senior division, ages 11 to 15, will swim six laps, bike 3 miles and run 1 mile. The option for a parent to compete with their child is available; for that division there will be no placement awards, just finishers medals and the events will be the same length as the junior division. In addition to the swimming, biking and running, the park will have music and other entertainment, fun family activities, drawings and prizes, and the sheriffs office will be there showing off some of equipment. Money raised from the race will go toward supporting United Way initiatives in the county. We want to help the community as a whole, United Way of Citrus County President Amy Meek said. We can bring about real, lasting change by providing and utilizing solutions to impact peoples lives. Some of these initiatives include financial literacy workshops, Learn to Earn training, and supporting healthier choices and education assistance. Registration for the event is $25. Each participant will receive an event T-shirt and a finishers medal. Visit www. CitrusKidsTri.com for more information and a printable mail-in application. If interested in being a sponsor, call the United Way of Citrus County at 352-7955483, or visit www.citrusunitedway.org. Deadline to register is May 8. Whats great about the race, number one, is that we are introducing kids to athletics, and number two, this is something they could do forever. Adults participate in triathlons at all stages of life, Meek said. We are exposing them to a healthy experience. REBECCAMARTIN Special to the ChronicleFitness Challengers this year said they were really motivated to get moving after the winter months, and it turned out to be a lot of fun. The 2013 Community-Wide Fitness Challenge engaged 300 participants on 40 teams. On post-Challenge evaluations, they detailed achievements and benefits, including health improvements and just plain having fun. More than 96 percent said they would participate again next year. The Challenge ran for six weeks in February and March. Teams competed in different categories, choosing among a number of physical activities to earn challenge points. Nearly all said they think the Fitness Challenge should be run again next year, and most said they would participate again. Here are the highlights of their evaluations:The personal benefitsMost respondents indicated that, in addition to having fun, they had achieved several health and well-being benefits from participating in the Fitness Challenge. 87 percent said they improved their overall health/ fitness. 52 percent said they lost some weight (and others said their weight stayed the same but their clothes were looser). 27 percent said they lowered their blood pressure through exercise. 37 percent said they made new friends, up from last time. Interestingly, many reported improvements in sleep, stress and mood due to exercise: 40 percent said they were able to sleep better. 42 percent said they had lower stress level. 44 percent reported improved moods. All these improvements are key to lowering risk for heart disease, Citrus Countys No.1 killer of both men and women.The fitness challengersParticipants this year were mostly female 80 percent and there again were family groups, as well as groups of friends, co-workers, club members and neighbors united by hobbies. About 36 percent of this years participants were ages 41 through 60, consistent with the nationwide baby-boomer concern about fitness and health. And reflecting the countys active, older demographic, more than 48 percent of challengers were age 61 or older, including 23 percent older than 70. CommentsThese comments are typical of the many seen on challengers evaluations: Enjoyed the jump start; the challenge is a great motivation to get some exercise every day. Im aware that the less I do, the less I can do; and the more I do, the more I can do. Accountability is the key: I didnt want to let my team down, and I didnt let myself down. I had a barrel of fun, and always feel emotionally much better after exercising. Setting goals helped us all achieve more; this was a challenge all levels could meet. Group exercise helps you make new friends; social activity is important, especially to widows and others who are alone. Its better than TV or a bar.The bottom lineIts clear from their evaluations that this years fitness challengers considered their participation a positive experience. Congratulations to everyone who took part. Thanks also to the groups and organizations that supported this years activities in so many ways, including support of workplace teams to participate. A special thank-you goes to the Citrus County Chronicle, which published team scores each week during the Community-Wide Fitness Challenge and hosted a blog.WinnersCongratulations to the 40 teams and 300 individuals who participated in the CommunityWide Fitness Challenge of 2013. They spent the six weeks of this years Challenge walking, jogging, swimming, biking, kayaking, working out, skating, playing ball and more to improve their physical fitness. Teams joined one of two tracks, either step-counting or minutes-of-activity, in one of three fitness level categories. Congratulations to everyone, and especially to these highpoint teams in each category:STEPS CHALLENGEJust Getting Started 1. Fiscally Fit. 2. Almost There. 3. Step It Up. Getting There 1.

We ask that people try the cart before deciding it wont work, he said. Larry Dalla Betta, Waste Management government affairs manager, said the trend in the industry is moving toward full automation using the wheeled carts. More than 350,000 residents of the Miami-Dade area use the carts, as well as residents of Collier County. Brevard and Hillsborough counties are heading toward carts as well, Dalla Betta said. Theyre not heavy at all; they just look daunting, he said. We made a video in Brevard County of elderly people using the carts and showing that theyre very easy to maneuver. Still, we understand peoples concerns. City residents are invited to call the city of Inverness at 352-726-2611, ext. 1002, 1003 or 1401, to talk to a city staff member about the curbside recycle program.

SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS Sunshine Arnold of the University of Florida Child Protection Team and of Jessies Place had to thank Deputy Nick Hesse for his valiant effort in saving a baby whose life was nearly snuffed out by an accused child abuser. Arnold said Hesse went to the residence to conduct a wellbeing check, but was met by a less-than-cooperative resident. However, instead of just turning around and leaving, he lingered until he heard the child cry then he sprang into action. The starving child was found squirreled away in a chilled, filthy, diaper-riddled room and frozen in a fetal position, according to a report by Citrus County Sheriffs Office. The childs mother is facing aggravated child abuse charges. Monday, Hesse and others honored law enforcement officers, victim rights advocates and court officers who go above and beyond the call of duty to stand up for victims of crime. The event also kicked off National Crime Victims Rights Week in the county. The audience got to hear a heartrending story of the featured speaker, Cara Meeks, a resilient survivor of a kidnapping and childhood sexual abuse. A solemn Sheriff Jeff Dawsy reassured victims that law enforcement is on their side. My pledge is we will not forget the people who sit in front of us. I hope we have learned from your tragedies and hope to do a better job with future victims, Dawsy told the audience. Assistant State Attorney Rich Buxman, who is also head of the Citrus office, said criminals are finding new and innovative methods to further their enterprise, but that his office is up to the challenge by forging partnerships with advocates and law enforcement. However, it was keynote speaker Meeks who shared the emotional story of her abduction and assault as an 8-year-old by a meter reader. She had the audience in tears as she described her journey from being victimized to dedicating her life to helping the abused, speaking for them when they cant and spreading awareness about how to triumph over abuse. Meeks said her parents always believed her and supported her, which aided her in her odyssey to become a survivor. Her mantra these days is live, laugh and love. Others honored for going far and beyond the call of duty include: CCSO Sgt. Jerry Dixon, Detective Brian Melhado and Buxman. Shannon Boles, a victims rights advocate with the state attorneys office, emceed the event.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

According to officials, a call came into dispatch about a camper fire at 4:30 p.m. Rescue crews responded to the area of County Road 486 and Railroad Way in Hernando. The camper was being used to sell barbecue, and officials believe the probable cause of the blaze was an electrical short. Fire Rescue said the fire was not suspicious and the trailer was a total loss. Units from Hernando, Kensington and Pine Ridge worked the call. No other damage was caused by the fire and there were no injuries.Citrus CountySeniors sought for graduation sectionThe Chronicle wants to include graduating homeschooled seniors from Citrus County in the upcoming graduation tab for 2013. Also welcome are graduating seniors from out-ofcounty schools who reside in Citrus County. Send the graduates name and a photo to the Chronicle Attn: Cindy Connolly, 1624 N. Meadowcrest Blvd., Crystal River, FL 34429; or email cconnolly@chronicle online.com no later than Friday, April 26, with the photo as an attachment. Information and photos can also be dropped off at the Meadowcrest office in Crystal River. TallahasseeGroup faults bill on voter emailsThe First Amendment Foundation is criticizing a proposal this legislative session that would exempt voters email addresses from the states public record law. Foundation President Barbara Petersen on Monday wrote letters to House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz. The exemption bill (HB 249/SB 1260) could be passed this week. She said if the exemption passes, it will allow public officials to hide who theyre communicating with if those people are registered voters. But proponents of the bill say releasing email addresses could lead to identity theft and voter fraud.Bonita SpringsRoadside animal attraction closesOne of the last Old Florida-style roadside animal attractions in the state has closed its doors to the public. Wonder Gardens in Bonita Springs closed for good on Sunday. Lester Piper started the park in 1936 with panther cubs, alligators and snakes. Later, when the menagerie was owned by Pipers grandson David Piper, it claimed to have the largest crocodile in captivity in the world Big Joe was more than 1,200 pounds. But David Piper was diagnosed with an inoperable tumor and decided to close the park and sell the land and all of the animals. On Monday, Piper said he will call zoos and collectors interested in his animals and artifacts. From Staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Low gas prices help CCSO fuel budget PATFAHERTY Staff writerThis year could set a record for the earliest ending date of high seasonal gas prices. The U.S. Energy Information Administration announced Monday average gas prices fell by 24 cents a gallon between Feb. 25 and April 15. And if the average price does not rise above $3.78 per gallon again this season, the 2013 seasonal price increase will have the earliest ending date since 1991. Traditionally, high pump prices continue through May and decline for the summer driving season. Pump prices did the exact opposite of what was forecast at the start of the year, said AAA spokeswoman Jessica Brady. Instead of reaching a peak price, gas prices dropped to about 40 cents less than they were this time last year. In addition to regular motorists, current lower fuel prices benefit the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. It is not unusual to see a sheriff patrol car filling up at a local station. Spokeswoman Heather Yates explained the fuel budgeting process is quite detailed. We begin working on our sheriffs office budget shortly after the new fiscal year begins, she said. For example, our fiscal year runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30. So, in October of last year, we started working on our budget for FY 2014. Our finance director sets the budget amount for the cost per gallon for fuel. This figure is based on historical data and research on market trends, cost per barrel, etc. Currently, fuel is budgeted at $3.80 a gallon. If we discover the budget was set too high, any unused funds are returned to the county at the end of the year. When fuel prices began rising a couple of years ago, the sheriff put together a fuel task force that studied ways to save gas during day-to-day operations, Yates said.Since that time, we have done an excellent job at conserving fuel and deputies are very aware of how fuel prices impact our budget. They do not leave their cars running on calls and try to get gas at the cheapest locations. They are issued Wright Express cards, which enables all taxes to be taken off of our fuel prices immediately. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com. We will not forget A.B. SIDIBE/ChronicleCitrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy speaks Monday at an event to kick off Crime Victims Rights Week in the Board of County Commissioners chambers. Event remembers crime victims and offers kudos Scott signs education bill UF to offer online degrees Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Monday signed into law a sweeping education bill that rolls back graduation standards adopted just three years ago. The far-reaching measure also sets the stage for the University of Florida to take the lead in online education in the state. The states most prestigious university would gain the right to offer bachelor degrees completely online. Scott predicted the measure would transform education and help high school graduates go down a pathway leading to a job. This legislation will help us take a giant step forward, Scott said. The measure was passed overwhelmingly by the Florida Legislature and included top priorities of both Senate President Don Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weatherford. The law (SB 1076) makes changes to everything from testing requirements to the addition of a financial literacy requirement for high school students to learn about credit cards, debt and identity theft. The main part of the legislation allows students to graduate from high school even if they dont complete tough classes in both math and science. Legislators in 2010 raised the states graduation requirements by adding Algebra II and science courses such as chemistry and physics. The goal was to align high school standards to the types of skills needed to attract high-wage jobs in the state. But the law Scott signed removes those requirements, which is a position backed by school superintendents. Instead, collegebound students could opt to take tougher courses and earn a high school diploma that includes a scholar designation. Students also would be allowed to take career education courses or enroll in work-related internships. Supporters of the measure insisted they were redesigning high school standards to give options to students who may not be interested in pursuing a college degree. The danger in the previous legislation was that it would drive more students away from high school than drawing them to success, said Orange County school superintendent Barbara Jenkins. Some of those courses ... were just a little bit beyond what some of our students will need in order to be successful. Students who entered the ninth grade this past school year will still be required to pass Algebra II to graduate. State set to gain water quality control CHRISVANORMER Staff writerThe state will take back its authority to determine water quality this week, but some environmental groups suspect the move will lead to more algae blooms. On Wednesday, Senate Bill 1808 relating to excess nitrogen levels in water and phosphorus pollution sponsored by state Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness will be up for a final vote before the Florida Senate. The House companion bill, House Bill 7115, has passed its committees of reference and awaits a hearing before the entire House of Representatives on the floor. The bills direct the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to develop numeric nutrient criteria nitrogen and phosphorus levels for water bodies not covered by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards. This has been a work in progress for several years, Dean said. As the chairman of the Senate Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation, I am pleased to have passed this bill which implements this agreement. I look forward to the continuing protection and restoration of Floridas waterways. Dean sponsored legislation last year establishing the states right to set up its own scientific criteria for its water bodies because federal standards, adopted in 2010, would hold Floridas drainage canals to the same water quality standards as the states lakes and rivers. Many industries and businesses opposed the higher standards as too costly, raising expenses that would be passed to consumers. The Florida Farm Bureau Federation has taken the position that federal standards were imposed only on Florida and were not scientifically sound. However, environmental groups that see the states reduced criteria resulting in more toxic algae blooms staged protests last week in several cities throughout the state. An Inverness-based organization also opposes the bill. Nitrogen is probably the biggest problem in our waters, said Al Grubman, one of the directors of TOO FAR, a grassroots group focused on improving water quality. To set standards lower than the federal governments and not give this the priority it needs is just an absolute shame. It is just so much more important to Florida than probably anywhere else. And we dont take it seriously. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at cvanormer@chronicle online.com. My pledge is we will not forget the people who sit in front of us. I hope we have learned from your tragedies and hope to do a better job with future victims. Jeff DawsyCitrus County sheriff.

Birthday Although your material prospects look encouraging, this doesnt mean that you wont experience problems during coming months. Be prepared to take the good with the bad. Taurus (April 20-May 20) People whose work you oversee will likely require some skillful management. Their production could suffer if they are not given proper guidance. Gemini (May 21-June 20) Taking a risk on an unpredictable situation could be an exercise in futility. This might be one of those days when even sure things are difficult to achieve. Cancer (June 21-July 22) Rather than respond in kind, make an effort to be affectionate with your special someone if, for no reason, he or she is a bit on the cranky side. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) If you hope to really get things done, youll have to be industrious. If you neglect your responsibilities, matters will only get worse. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If your credit cards are too accessible, there is a strong possibility that you will waste your money on extravagances. Better lock up your wallet. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Should you have to deal with a surly, impossible to please individual, dont blame yourself. You didnt fail, he or she did. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If you feel impelled to do something for another, do it out of the goodness of your heart and not because youre angling for a reward. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Watch out, because theres a strong possibility you might spend funds that will be needed in the future. Opting for instant gratification could be your downfall. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be mindful of whom you talk to when socializing. Dont squander all your attention on a hot shot who doesnt give a hoot about you or anyone else. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Dont get into a situation similar to one that has caused you all kinds of problems in the past. Remember the hard lessons youve learned. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Just because you know the other party well is no reason to ignore the details in a joint agreement. Leave no reason for problems to develop down the line. Aries (March 21-April 19) Your associates will not be manipulated if they dont like the way you want to handle a project. Listen to and implement their ideas. TodaysHOROSCOPES Today is Tuesday, April 23, the 113th day of 2013. There are 252 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On April 23, 1943, U.S. Navy Lt. John F.

Witherspoons case was scheduled for a Monday morning hearing, but it was reset for May 22. She was arrested Friday. The Oscar-winning actress released a statement late Sunday apologizing for her behavior when her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth was arrested and accused of driving under the influence of alcohol. Toth also had a hearing set for Monday, but it was rescheduled for May 23. The actress didnt appear in court. She was in New York on Sunday night attending the premiere of her new movie Mud. She posed for cameras on the red carpet but did not stop to talk to reporters. Do you know my name? Witherspoon is quoted as saying in a state troopers report of the early Friday incident. She also said: Youre about to find out who I am and Youre about to be on national news, according to the report. I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said, Witherspoon said.Hills tax evasion sentencing delayedNEWARK, N.J. A federal judge postponed Lauryn Hills tax evasion sentencing on Monday but not before scolding the eight-time Grammy-winning singer for reneging on a promise to make restitution by now. Hill pleaded guilty last year to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007. At that time, her attorney said she would pay restitution by the time of her sentencing. It was revealed Monday in court that Hill has paid $50,000 of a total of $554,000. U.S. Magistrate Judge Madeline Cox Arleo criticized her for relying on the promise of a recording contract to pay the tax bill. This is not someone who stands before the court penniless, Arleo said to Hills attorney, Nathan Hochman. This is a criminal matter. Actions speak louder than words, and there has been no effort here to pay these taxes. The reclusive singer didnt speak during the proceeding and left the court without commenting. Arleo rescheduled the sentencing for May 6.Summitts life chronicled in Pat XONEW YORK Pat Summitt smiled, laughed and shook her head at times. The Hall of Fame coach, who has early onset dementia, was part of the audience watching a screening of a documentary about her career, Pat XO. Its a wonderful film and they did a great job with it, Summitt told The Associated Press. It was really incredible to see all those people share their stories. The show is part of ESPN Films Nine for IX documentary series. It debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday and will air July 9. Summitts son, Tyler, was the lead storyteller, spending time with his mother on a couch in their home going through a scrapbook of her life. The film starts from Summitts earliest days and goes through her retirement last April. The 60-year-old former Tennessee coach acknowledged in her recently released book that at times she may not remember all the milestones of her career. This project will provide a reminder.

E.L. Konigsburg, 83AUTHORFALLS CHURCH, Va. E.L. Konigsburg, an author who twice won one of the top honors for childrens literature, has died. She was 83. Her son Paul Konigsburg said the longtime Florida resident died Friday at a hospital in Falls Church, Va., where shed been living for the past few years with another son. She had suffered a stroke a week before she died. She won the John Newbery Medal in 1997 for her book The View from Saturday and in 1968 for From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. The Newbery is one of the top honors for childrens literature. Her family said she wrote 16 childrens novels and illustrated three picture books. Her first book, Jennifer, Hecate, MacBeth, William McKinley, and Me, Elizabeth was also a Newbery honor book in 1968, making her the only author to be a winner and runner-up in the same year. In 1997, the Newbery committee called her story of a sixth grade Academic Bowl team and their coach a unique, jubilant tour de force characterized by good humor, positive relationships, distinctive personalities and brilliant story telling. Konigsburg said in an interview with The Associated Press at the time: The award represents a kind of validation that I find just most gratifying. In 2004, she told The Dallas Morning Newsthat she built her characters and plots by imagining what-if situations with her children, grandchildren and students. I think most of us are outsiders, she said. And I think thats good because it makes you question things. I think it makes you see things outside yourself. Her stories were also adapted for movies and television. Ingrid Bergman starred as Mrs. Frankweiler in a 1973 film adaptation of Konigsburgs book called The Hideaways. Konigsburg grew up in Pennsylvania and graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a degree in chemistry. She married David Konigsburg in 1952, and the couple lived in several cities before settling in the Jacksonville, Fla., area. Konigsburg, who had two sons and a daughter and five grandchildren, started writing and illustrating childrens books when her youngest child began kindergarten. Her husband died in 2001. Chrissy Amphlett, 53SINGERSYDNEY Chrissy Amphlett, the raunchy lead singer of the Australian rock band Divinyls, whose hit I Touch Myself brought her international fame in the early 1990s, died at her home in New York City on Sunday. She was 53 years old. Christine Joy Amphlett succumbed to the effects of breast cancer and multiple sclerosis, diseases she vigorously fought with exceptional bravery and dignity, her musician husband Charley Drayton said in a statement. Chrissys light burns so very brightly. Hers was a life of passion and creativity. She always lived it to the fullest. With her force of character and vocal strength, she paved the way for strong, sexy, outspoken women, he said. Amphlett was an icon of Australian music re nowned for her distinctive singing voice as well as edgy stage performances clad in school uniforms and fishnet stockings. She was born on Oct. 25, 1959, in Geelong city in Victoria state, cousin of 1960s Australian pop star Patricia Amphlett, known as Little Pattie, who was at her New York bedside on Sunday. Amphlett met musician Mark McEntee at a concert at the Sydney Opera House in 1980 and the pair formed the Divinyls. The band released six albums between 1982 and 1996, peaking in 1991 with the success of the single I Touch Myself, which reached No. 1 in Australia, No. 4 in the United States and No. 10 in Britain. The band reformed briefly in 2006. Amphlett announced in 2007 that she had multiple sclerosis and in 2010 that she had cancer. Amphlett was also an actress who made her movie debut in the 1982 Australian film Monkey Grip. She later played Russell Crowes mother in the Australian stage production of the musical Blood Brothers. Crowe sent a Twitter message after Amphletts death. Dear Chrissie, The last time I saw you was in the Botanic Gardens, loving life and reciting verse. Thats how Ill remember you, your boy, R, it said.

Man uses machete on grandmotherPLANT CITY Deputies arrested a man who is accused of attacking his 75year-old grandmother with a machete during a dispute at her home near Tampa. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office said 34-yearold Anthony Griffith got into a physical dispute with Barbara Harvey on Saturday afternoon. He then grabbed a machete and slashed her face and upper body. According to an arrest report, Griffith called 911 after the attack and explained what he had done. Deputies responded and arrested him without incident. A sheriffs spokeswoman says Harvey was in intensive care on Sunday night at Florida Hospital. Her grandson faces charges of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon on a victim over 65.Shooting in Fort Myers kills 2A 17-year-old football player and a 20-year-old were fatally shot in a Fort Myers public housing development. Authorities said the shooting happened late Saturday in the Renaissance Preserve. Police released few details about the shooting, which killed Fort Myers High School sophomore Jiatarious JoJo Brunson and Paul Baldwin. They were taken to a hospital where they were pronounced dead. The Fort Myers NewsPress reported police and investigators from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement were at the scene for six hours, interviewing family members and neighbors. Authorities said Baldwin was injured during a drive-by shooting in September 2012. The newspaper reported that police identified him as a member of a local rap group, Lake Boyz.

Bunnell police called in hazmat officials Saturday to examine the package and cordoned off the area. The powder tested positive for cocaine. The Daytona Beach NewsJournal reported employees opened the package in the motel office on Saturday. With recent events around the country, Bunnell City Manager Armando Martinez said officials cant be too cautious. Bunnell Police Chief Jeff Hoffman said the department will work with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service to determine who sent the package to the motel.Boy injured in gator attackBOYNTON BEACH A 6year-old South Florida boy suffered minor injuries after being attacked by an alligator, federal wildlife officials said Monday.

Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. I went in it and there was a splash. The alligator just swam into me and clamped my arm, the boy told WPLG-TV. Joeys father and other bystanders punched and kicked the alligator until it released the child. I didnt want to play tug-ofwar with the alligator and get his arm ripped off, Joseph Welch told WSVN-TV. Joey was treated at a hospital for cuts and bruises to his right arm, shoulder and chest, wildlife officials said. His father had a bruised right hand from punching the alligator.

The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Dealing a blow to business groups, a Senate committee Monday revamped a controversial bill that would place more restrictions on expert witnesses in lawsuits. The Senate Rules Committee voted 8-7 to approve an amendment that threatens to scuttle the bill (SB 1412), which groups such as the Florida Chamber of Commerce have made a priority. A similar scenario played out last year, when a Senate amendment effectively killed the bill. Yogi Berra deja vu all over again, said the bills sponsor, Sen. Garrett Richter, R-Naples. Richters proposal, which the House has already backed, would lead to courts using a more-stringent standard when deciding whether expert testimony should be admitted in cases. But Sen. David Simmons, a Maitland Republican who offered the amendment, said the Richter proposal would lead to delays and extra expenses in lawsuits and be used as a tactical maneuver by defendants to wear down their opponents. He was backed by the states prosecuting attorneys and the Florida Justice Association, which includes civil plaintiffs attorneys. While somewhat arcane, the expert-witness issue has become a battleground in recent years as business groups seek changes in the legal system to help shield companies from costly litigation. Expert testimony can be critical in complex civil and criminal cases. Business groups want to ditch a standard that Florida courts have used for decades known in the legal world as the Frye standard and move to tougher requirements that are used in the federal courts. Those requirements are known as the Daubert standard. Critics of the Frye standard say it allows junk science to be admitted into cases. But opponents of moving to the Daubert standard say it would lead to road blocks to legitimate testimony going before juries. The current standard, at least in part, requires judges to determine whether an experts testimony is based on scientific principle or discovery that has gained general acceptance in the particular scientific field. But the Daubert standard would require judges to look at whether testimony is based upon sufficient facts or data; whether it is the product of reliable principles and methods; and whether a witness has applied the principles and methods reliably to the facts of the case. Simmons, who is an attorney, described his amendment as a hybrid. While it mirrored parts of Richters bill, Simmons said it would allow expert testimony that is generally accepted in the scientific community so that parties wouldnt have to go back and re-prove or reinvent the wheel. Four Republicans joined four Democrats in voting for the amendment, while six Republicans and one Democrat voted against it. The committee then voted 13-2 to approve the amended bill, a move Richter supported because he said he wanted to keep it alive for the Senate floor. The House last week approved its version of the Richter proposal (HB 7015). Last year, the House also passed such a bill but refused to go along with a Senate amendment. Expert witness bill hits rough patch Measure would strengthen standards for allowable testimony StateBRIEFS From wire reports

Supporters: Dont link immigration bill to Boston Associated PressWASHINGTON Democratic supporters of a new immigration bill accused opponents Monday of trying to exploit the Boston Marathon bombings to hold up the legislation, sparking a testy exchange at a Senate hearing. I never said that! I never said that! Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, interjected as Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., a lead author of the bill, criticized those who are pointing to what happened, the terrible tragedy in Boston, as a, I would say, excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it. Schumer said he wasnt talking about Grassley, who said last week that the bombings, allegedly carried out by two immigrant brothers, raised question about gaps in the U.S. immigration system that should be examined in context of the new bill. Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., banged his gavel to settle the proceedings. The exchange came as the Judiciary Committee opened its second hearing on sweeping legislation to strengthen border security, allow tens of thousands of new highand low-skilled workers into the country, require all employers to check their workers legal status, and provide an eventual path to citizenship for some 11 million immigrants now here illegally. The obstacles to the legislation, released last week by a group of four Republican and four Democratic senators, were on stark display Monday. Polls show majority public backing for comprehensive legislation including a path to citizenship, and many Republicans also support such an approach. But in some corners, opposition has not wavered. That became clear as GOP senators took turns offering critiques. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called a path to citizenship divisive, and said any bill that insists upon that jeopardizes the likelihood of passing any immigration reform bill. Sen. Jeff Sessions, RAla., contended the new bill would drive down wages and eliminate jobs for American workers. Sen. John Cornyn, RTexas, said the border security piece of the bill falls well short of the sponsors aspiration to protect the borders and maintain U.S. sovereignty. And Grassley said new requirements mandating employers to verify employees legal status are ineffective. Republicans werent the only ones to find the legislation wanting. Several Democrats expressed concerns over the exclusion of provisions to recognize gay marriages for immigration purposes. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., promised to fight to get such a measure included something Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has said could sink the bill. Rows of spectators looked on wearing white Tshirts reading Keep Families Together as senators heard Monday from business and labor leaders, immigration advocates and opponents of reform, and others. But as happened at the first hearing on the bill, on Friday, the Boston Marathon bombings colored the proceedings. The attacks were allegedly carried out by two ethnic Chechen immigrant brothers who both arrived legally in the U.S. about a decade ago and sought asylum. One was a legal permanent resident and the other a naturalized U.S. citizen. On Monday, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., joined Grassley and others whove suggested that the bombings showed the need to examine national security and the U.S. immigration system. We should not proceed until we understand the specific failures of our immigration system, Paul wrote in a letter to Majority Leader Harry Reid, DNev. Paul said national security protections must be part of any immigration legislation to ensure the federal government does everything it can to keep immigrants with malicious intent from using the immigration system to enter the country to commit acts of terror. Associated PressNEW DELHI A child disappears. Police are called. Nothing happens. Child rights activists say the rape last week of a 5year-old girl is just the latest case in which Indian police failed to take urgent action on a report of a missing child. Three days after the attack, the girl was found alone in locked room in the same New Delhi building where her family lives. More than 90,000 children go missing in India each year; more than 34,000 are never found. Some parents say they lost crucial time because police wrongly dismissed their missing children as runaways, refused to file reports or treated the cases as nuisances. The parents of the 5year-old said that after their daughter disappeared, they repeatedly begged police to register a complaint and begin a search, but they were rejected. Three days later, neighbors heard the sound of a child crying from a locked room in the tenement. They broke down the door and rushed the brutalized girl to the police station. The parents said the police response was to offer the couple 2,000 rupees ($37) to keep quiet about what had happened. They just wanted us to go away. They didnt want to register a case even after they saw how badly our daughter was injured, said the girls father, who cannot be identified because Indian law requires a rape victims identity be kept secret. Delhis Police Commissioner Neeraj Kumar admitted Monday that local police had erred in handling the case. There have been shortfalls, so the station house officer and his deputy have been suspended, Kumar told reporters. Other poor parents of missing children say they also have found police reluctant to help them. Formal police complaints were registered in only one-sixth of missing child cases in 2011, said Bhuwan Ribhu, a lawyer with Bachpan Bachao Andolan, or the Save the Childhood Movement. He said police resist registering cases because they want to keep crime figures low, and that parents are often too poor to bribe them to reconsider. Ribhu said the first few hours after a child goes missing are the most crucial. The police can cordon off nearby areas, issue alerts at railway and bus stations, and step up vigilance to catch the kidnappers, he said. Activists say delays let traffickers move children to neighboring states, where the police dont have jurisdiction. There is no national database of missing children that state police can reference. Police have insisted most of missing children are runways fleeing grinding poverty. Its easy enough to blame the police for not finding the children. Some of the parents do not even possess a photograph of the child. Or they will come up with a yearsold picture. It becomes difficult when theres not even a photograph to work with, Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said last month when asked about complaints on police inaction in investigating case of missing children. Many cases involved poor migrant construction workers who move from site to site around the city, Bhagat said. The children are unfamiliar with the place and once they lose their way, they wouldnt know how to return, he said. Indias Women and Child Development Minister Krishna Tirath told Parliament last month that the problem of missing children had assumed alarming proportions. The National Crime Records Bureau reported that 34,406 missing children were never found in 2011, up from 18,166 in 2009.A8TUESDAY, APRIL23, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION/WORLD 000EHI5 000EMWK Protesters: Indian girls rape highlights police apathy Associated PressAn Indian woman holds a poster Monday as she protests with others against how Indian authorities handle sex crimes near the Parliament in New Delhi, India, after a second suspect was arrested in the rape of a 5-year-old girl.

KERR Associated PressWASHINGTON More parents need to talk with their teens about the dangers of abusing Ritalin, Adderall and other prescription drugs, suggests a new study that finds discouraging trends on kids and drug use. When teens were asked about the last substance abuse conversation they had with their parents, just 14 percent said they talked about abusing a prescription drug, said the report being released Tuesday by The Partnership at Drugfree.org. For parents, it really comes down to not using the power they have because they dont think this is an immediate problem, meaning their own home, own neighborhood kind of thing, says Steve Pasierb, president of the partnership. They believe that this is probably a safer way, not as bad as illegal street drugs. By comparison, most teens 81 percent said they have talked about the risks of marijuana use with their parents. Almost the same number said they have discussed alcohol with their parents. Almost one-third said they have talked about crack and cocaine. Some parents didnt see a significant risk in teens misusing prescription drugs. One in six parents said using prescription drugs to get high is safer than using street drugs, according to the survey. Almost one-third of the parents said attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medications such as Ritalin or Adderall can improve a childs academic or testing performance even if the teen does not have ADHD. For Tracey and Jeff Gerl, of Cypress, Texas, their sons drug abuse problem was a shock. We just didnt know, said Jeff. He and his wife had the drugs are bad talk with their son, Nick, and thought he got the message. They called the parents of friends when he said he was spending the night to make sure an adult would be home. They tried to get to know his friends. Despite their efforts, Nick started smoking pot at the age of 12. In an AP interview, Nick said he and his friends often raided their parents medicine cabinets for anything they could get their hands on codeine, Xanax, Ritalin. Some kids, Nick said, would have skittles parties, where the teens threw all the pills they poached from home into a big bowl, mixed them up and then took a few without knowing exactly what they were ingesting. By 14, Nicks parents knew something was wrong. The day before he turned 15, they sent Nick to The Center for Success and Independence in Houston for 7 1/2 months of substance abuse treatment. It wasnt easy on anyone in the family Nick, his two younger brothers and his parents. Nick tried to escape twice, but made it through the program and has been sober now for a year. My family life is a lot better. Im realizing there are fun things in life that I can do sober, said Nick, now 16. I got a chance to get clean and I have my whole life ahead of me. One in four teens in the study said they had misused or abused a prescription drug at least once. Thats up sharply, a 33 percent increase, in the last five years. One in eight teens report misusing or abusing the drugs Ritalin or Adderall stimulants prescribed to treat ADHD. Other national studies also have seen a rise in abuse numbers for these stimulants among teens. The partnerships Pasierb says parents need to talk early and often with their children about the dangers of drugs, including prescription drugs. They need to tell their children that this isnt healthy for you and it will break my heart if you do this. Looking back, Tracey Gerl says she should have listened to her gut more when she first suspected Nick might be using drugs. If it doesnt seem right, its not, said Gerl. Dont ever be naive to think its not my kid.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott is making personal pitches to lawmakers in pushing for a late breakthrough to exempt manufacturers from paying sales taxes on equipment purchases, one of his legislative priorities this year. The Republican governor is meeting one-on-one with lawmakers to pitch his idea of boosting Floridas manufacturing sector by giving manufacturers a blanket exemption from paying the 6 percent sales tax on equipment purchases, two of his key allies on the issue said Monday. We are working hard to move it along, said Sen. Dorothy Hukill, a Port Orange Republican who is sponsoring the Senate version (SB 518). I know the governor is very engaged at this point. Supporters say the exemption is needed to stimulate job growth in manufacturing, which they say has lagged in a state that relies on a vast services industry tied to its sunshine, beaches and theme parks. The bills opponents have said they support manufacturing but criticized the idea of granting a tax break targeting that one sector of the economy. The proposed tax break is contained in companion bills that havent come up for debate yet in the full House or Senate. Two weeks remain in the 60day session. Scott made a public pitch for the proposal Monday, telling reporters: We want more manufacturing jobs in our state. The right way to get those is to eliminate the sales tax on machinery equipment so we have more jobs for more Florida families. The main obstacles in the Legislature are policy questions and the cost of exempting manufacturers from paying the sales tax, said Hukill and Rep. Ritch Workman, who also supports the proposal. Its not politics, its obviously policy and its money, Hukill said in an interview. The exemption is estimated to cost the state about $115 million in lost tax revenue in the first year, said Hukill, who heads the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Finance and Tax. At the end of the day, there are 10,000 different ideas to build jobs and spur the economy, said Workman, a Melbourne Republican who heads the House Finance and Tax Subcommittee. There are 160 members of the Legislature. You have to convince them that this one rises to the top, if were going to spend $115 million on anything. Just saying I want this from the governor isnt necessarily enough.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL23, 2013 A9 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: 1,562.50 Change: 7.25 (0.5%) 10 DAYS 12,000 12,800 13,600 14,400 15,200 OA NDJFM 14,440 14,700 14,960 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 14,567.17 Change: 19.66 (0.1%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1762 Declined1270 New Highs160 New Lows41 Vol. (in mil.)2,912 Pvs. Volume3,479 1,598 1,660 1270 1166 72 43 NYSE NASD DOW 14588.8314457.6014567.17+19.66+0.14%+11.16% DOW Trans.6077.965964.076051.48+17.34+0.29%+14.03% DOW Util.529.88524.69527.89-0.14-0.03%+16.51% NYSE Comp.9037.908939.139019.92+25.80+0.29%+6.83% NASDAQ3241.163198.743233.55+27.49+0.86%+7.09% S&P5001565.551548.191562.50+7.25+0.47%+9.56% S&P4001127.301109.811124.44+3.14+0.28%+10.19% Wilshire 500016495.4316308.5016464.29+70.65+0.43%+9.80% Russell 2000916.32899.92914.80+2.30+0.25%+7.71% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Interestrates Stocks edge higher Energy stocks rebound Associated PressNEW YORK Stocks edged higher on Monday as energy stocks got a lift from recovering oil prices. The energy industry climbed 1 percent, making it the biggest gainer in the Standard & Poors 500 index. Oil rose 75 cents, or 0.9 percent, to $88.76 a barrel Monday. A week ago, crude fell below $90 a barrel for the first time this year after reports that Chinas economic growth slowed. The broader market managed only a modest advance as investors focused on the outlook for company profits at the start of a big week for earnings on Wall Street. About a third of the companies in the S&P 500 index, including Exxon Mobil and Apple, will report earnings this week. While the reports have been good so far, concerns remain about the outlook for the rest of the year. Expectations may need to be lowered if the global economy doesnt improve. Most of the companies seem to be coming in ahead of earnings expectations, but the thing thats still problematic is the revenue line, said Bill Stone, chief investment strategist at PNC Wealth Management. To me its just symptomatic of the global economy continuing to sputter along. Of the companies that have reported earnings so far, 67 percent have exceeded analysts expectations, exceeding the 10year average of 62 percent, according to S&P Capital IQ. Analysts currently expect earnings to rise by 2 percent in the first quarter, down from the 7.7 percent increase in the fourth quarter. On Monday, oil services company Halliburton gained after its loss wasnt as bad as analysts had forecast.

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 Leaders must leadSome Second Amendment advocates stress the need for increased mental health checks over any other type of background check as related to the purchase of any type firearm. This argument would make sense had not our government slashed, cut or is in the process of cutting more funds from health, education and many other so-called entitlements for the sake of a balanced budget. I do not claim to have the answers to our gun issue an issue which has ballooned out of proportion over the years. But to have anyone try and lay even the tiniest bit of blame solely on the mentally ill in our country as the main reason for our gun problem is absurd. Especially in light of Sen. Mitch McConnells recent campaign meeting in Frankfurt, Ky., where he and his aides laughed about depression, political positions and religious beliefs. How much more hypocritical can we get? The sworn leaders of our democracy mock, laugh and scorn mental health, religion and politics, yet seek to be elected in order to serve the people of the United States. Maybe the time has come to seek solutions to our many problems by finding a solution whereby we are able to elect representatives who have the best interests of their constituents and country. What we have now are a Congress full of wealthy people, seeking to get wealthier, and continually seeking ways to be reelected. I hope for our countrys sake, we have not passed beyond the point of no return in finding a solution to our many problems.Jack Stawicki Beverly HillsAll are welcomeIn response to Maria Weisers issue with the Christ Medical Center name and large cross, I submit my perspective. As a child, in Colorado, I had an emergency appendectomy at St. Anthonys hospital. Though not Catholic, I respected the many nuns who roamed the halls and helped care for patients. My parents took no issue with the hospitals name. My children were born at St. Lukes, which provided a chapel for everyone, regardless of belief, to pray or rest. Beth-Israel hospital, obviously Jewish, saved my life when I was near death from pneumonia. Florida offers a mix of medical professionals and my hope in seeing them is to be properly and compassionately treated without question as to religious beliefs. If Allah or Buddha medical center could cure my ailments, treat my sickness and make me feel better, I would not hesitate to go there. My beliefs are personal. We live in a free country which permits worship as we see fit. I am certain Christ Medical Center welcomes everyone, regardless of their faith or lack of it.Joanie Welch Inverness Ifind myself at that age where my dear wife has to repeat things occasionally to make sure I heard the key words, like empty and the garbage. I also sometimes need to read news articles a couple of times to make sure I got the entire scope and meaning of the article. So I hope someone can correct any misunderstanding of what I believe I am reading and hearing about our 2013 Florida Legislative session. There are two proposed bills that are sliding through this session with minimal discussion or opposition. They are HB 999 and SB 1684, which have been deemed trains because they are loaded to the hilt with things various lobbyists need for their clients such as further weakening of water management districts, eliminating or weakening some water use permitting requirements and air quality standards, preventing local governments from questioning developers as to potential impacts of proposed development projects, relaxation of septic tank inspections and on and on and on. These types of bills are not new to this group of legislators and our current state leadership. They have found the need to introduce all kinds of legislation the past two years and now this year to reverse 50 years of progress in protecting Floridas fragile and life-giving environment. And the life-giving here is not just for frogs, birds and alligators it is our economic lifeblood, it is our drinking water, it is the source of many of our livelihoods. People come to Citrus County by the thousands to swim in our springs, swim with the manatees and catch the tarpon on our gin-clear saltwater flats. As one longtime observer said recently, people dont come to Florida to see another strip mall with asphalt parking spaces. They come to enjoy Floridas unmatched beauty, including her springs, rivers, lakes, beaches and wild areas. What happened to the extraordinary foresight of our past governors and legislators of both political parties over the last 50 years, who together implemented strong protection for our most important natural assets? I hate to tell you, but those days seem to be gone. It appears now that many of our state leaders are of the mind that anything that might bring short-term economic gain is worth reversing 50 years of thoughtful progress in protecting the states natural resources, including our drinking water. There seems to be total disregard for the fact that our major springs are seeing significant declines in flows and water quality. Silver Springs experienced its lowest flow in its 80year record this past year. Its level of pollutants (nitrates) is 20 times the historic natural background. Its natural stock of game fish is almost gone. The spring is clouded by growth of noxious algae and undesirable vegetation. Sound familiar? Our own Crystal River and her springs are experiencing similar water quality problems and growth of undesirable elements like lyngbya. Ask the folks who live on our local spring-fed rivers if they have seen negative change in their rivers in recent years. Talk to folks who live in Cedar Key their freshwater drinking water source has become salty. They are now drinking very expensive reverse-osmosis water due to apparent saltwater intrusion. Our springs are but a reflection of what is going on in our aquifers the drinking water source for most of our citizens in Florida. Even more disturbing is that it appears our local legislators are voting in favor of these bills to continue to dismantle the dwindling protections our state still has in place. I hope I am wrong here but check the voting record of State Sen. Charlie Dean and State Rep. Jimmie Smith on these particular bills. It is very hard to understand how Citrus County, with three spring-fed rivers, several Outstanding Florida Waters, some of the most beautiful lakes in the state, and a well-documented healthy aquifer system, could have local elected legislators who would vote for less protection of these important resources.

The oversight has been corrected, but the incident leaves a bitter taste for taxpayers who are clamoring for administration and commissioners to spend their tax dollars wisely. To hear both sides tell it, the lapse was a misunderstanding of policy. The policy allows for employees to receive administrative leave with pay if they are called as witnesses. The employee in question produced a subpoena, which on the surface suggested he was being summoned as a witness and not a defendant. Nonetheless, had staff read the statute to the employee and questioned what his role would be, they could have avoided the awkwardness. The policy reads: An employee subpoenaed as a witness in a court or an administrative hearing, not involving his/her own personal litigation or service as a paid expert witness, shall be granted administrative leave with pay In no case shall administrative leave with pay be granted for court attendance when an employee is engaged in personal litigation or service as a paid expert witness; however, an employee may be granted annual leave in such cases with the approval of the department/office director. With a modicum of effort, the matter would have been cleared up before it became an embarrassment. The employee knew he was testifying as a defendant and therefore would not have been eligible for pay. County staff should understand it is under a microscope, especially in times of economic trouble. Taxpayers foot the bill for salaries and a host of other government functions. When staff appear to take a flippant attitude toward spending others hardearned money, it is no wonder people get cranky. Let this, and some of the other recent missteps, be a lesson to staff and administration. It is time to treat every dollar as if its your last. Be better stewards of taxpayer dollars.

Points to ponderThe president has blocked the opening of the Keystone Pipeline to prevent further damage to the environment by global warming. But if oil is not sold in the U.S. it will be sold in China. In both cases arent the combustion products the same? And well simply buy more from the Middle East, wont we? The economies of North Dakota and several other states are booming. Low unemployment, increased construction of roads, bridges, homes and schools are being fueled by natural gas and oil exploration on private lands. The president proudly announces Americas decreasing dependency on foreign oil while rejecting new drilling permits on government land. The Atlantic, the Pacific and the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge are off limits. Why? Ethanol, predominately from corn, is mandated in gasoline. It has only 75 percent of the energy value of unblended gasoline; this reduces MPG, thereby increasing pollution. Diverting corn to ethanol increases the price of everything that requires corn. Time to rethink the policy? Thirty years ago, Nobel economist Milton Friedman noted how truly bloated the federal government is. Each U.S. senator has a staff of about 65; each representative has 25. We pay the salaries of more than 17,000 aides every single year. Add the salaries and perks of 100 senators and 435 representatives, and youll understand why D.C. has a housing boom. That doesnt include the White House and the dozens of bureaus, departments and authorities. Are we getting our moneys worth when Sen. Harry Reid doesnt pass a budget in four years and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi tells us We must pass Obamacare to find out whats in it? What a disgrace! The president tells us we can add 30 million to government health care and it wont cost any more, and we can keep our own plans and keep our own doctors. And the press is silent. Trillions in cash income remains undeclared and further trillions remain overseas or hidden in offshore financial centers. Why? To avoid the taxes required by our current IRS. Thats the same IRS that allows a surcharge of $2,500 on lawful taxpayers to make up for the cheaters. With open discussion, we may yet see the wisdom of the Fair Tax, my personal preference, or a flat tax. Union members are exempted from Obamacare. Could that be a way of saying thank you for all your financial support? The GI Bill was one of the most successful programs ever enacted. Vouchers were given to veterans and they could use them to attend any school they chose. Can students today receive vouchers to do the same? Oh no! If they attend a private or parochial school, they pay the tuition, plus the taxes to support the schools they dont even attend. Vouchers to buy health insurance of your choice? No, again. Government will choose for you. Why is decreasing the rate of spending increase called a cut? Why is government spending an investment and programs which include tax increases are always a balanced approach?Joseph P. Ryan HomosassaSafety tipFor the second time in a week, we have had a person killed in a vehicle accident involving someone turning in front of oncoming traffic. Its an all-toocommon occurrence here. While its tempting to attribute this to carelessness and the age of the drivers, it can also be caused by a naturally occurring blind spot in our vision which many people are not aware of and do not know how to compensate for. Aviators are taught at an early stage of their training to have your head on a swivel, to move your head and look around. The reason is obvious. A collision in the air usually has fatal results. The technique of moving your head as you look around compensates for the natural occurring blind spot that you will have if the image from one eye is blocked. Im sure all of us have had the experience of having something appear out of nowhere. Actually, it was just hidden in your blind spot and it was there all the time. Believe it or not, the blind spot can be large enough to hide a semi under the right conditions. We, like all predators, have binocular vision, the ability to see depth of field. That design of our vision causes us to have a blind spot in each eye caused by the location of the optic nerve leaving the back of the eye and running to the brain. We normally dont see the blind spot because it is in a slightly different location for each eye and the brain fills in the missing information by combining the image from the other eye and gives us the correct picture. However, if the image from one eye is blocked for some reason, like the corner post of your windshield or your glasses frame, the brain will fill in the blind spot caused by the optic nerves location by taking the image surrounding the blind spot and filling it in with that image. You can find tons of information on this just by going to Google and typing in blind spot. I also offer this link that has a short demonstration that you can use to see your blind spot: http://serendip. brynmawr.edu/bb/blind spot1.html. Just remember that when you look left, then right, and then left one last time, move your head fore and aft a little to compensate for your blind spot. Be safe.Harley Lawrence HomosassaThank you!Our Rotary Club of Inverness recently completed a Sprucing Up Project at the Inverness Boys & Girls Club. We had a vision to add some materials and improve the appearance of the club so it would have a warmer and more welcoming atmosphere for the children. This building once housed the old Inverness police department and it had the stark, cold, impersonal appearance of that former identity. In August of this year, our Rotary Club ear-marked $2,000 towards this project and we then applied for and received a matching grant from our Rotary district for another $2,000. The goal seemed rather daunting, as we knew we would have a tight budget for everything we wanted to do. We wanted to paint all the walls, professionally clean the carpeting and the upholstered chairs, replace the frayed and mismatched carpeting, knock out a wall to open up a recreation room, add book shelving and new and exciting books, repair some of the broken doors and equipment (a Foosball table was missing a leg), relocate the computer lab, buy new tables for the study room, add draperies, new computers, a wireless system, a printer, new video games, and new and pretty shrubs and flowers in the entrance flower beds. Our goal was accomplished, but not without the labor of 26 members of the Rotary Club of Inverness, their friends, their families, some Boys & Girls Club staff, and the Interact Club of Citrus High School on several weekends. We scraped paint, scrubbed baseboards, painted, moved furniture, made repairs, shelved books, cleaned, delivered new equipment, dug flowerbeds and planted some beautiful new flora. In addition, many businesses came forward and helped us with this project through donations of products or services, making our accomplishments far beyond the $4,000 budget that we were allotted. Special thanks to the following local people and businesses who took this project to the next level because of their tremendous generosity: The Family Resource Center, Joes Carpet Inc., Keith Scott Enterprises, Kell Jemison and BNS (Business Network Systems), Likwid Communications Inc., Marks Flooring Inc., Mary Lundberg, The Olbek Family in memory of Paige Hanisch.

Tsarnaev could face death penalty Associated PressBOSTON Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was charged in his hospital room Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill, and he could get the death penalty. Tsarnaev, 19, was accused by federal prosecutors of joining with his older brother to set off the two pressure-cooker bombs that sprayed shrapnel into the crowd at the finish line last Monday, killing three people and wounding more than 180. The criminal complaint containing the charges shed no light on the motive for the attack. Tsarnaev was listed in serious but stable condition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, unable to speak because of a gunshot wound to the throat. His brother, Tamerlan, 26, died last week in a fierce gunbattle with police. Although our investigation is ongoing, todays charges bring a successful end to a tragic week for the city of Boston and for our country, Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement. The charges carry the death penalty or a prison sentence of up to life. He has whats coming to him, a wounded Kaitlynn Cates said from her hospital room. She was at the finish line when the first blast knocked her off her feet, and she suffered an injury to her lower leg. In outlining the evidence against him in court papers, the FBI said Tsarnaev was seen on surveillance cameras putting a knapsack down on the ground near the site of the second blast and then manipulating a cellphone and lifting it to his ear. Seconds later, the first explosion went off about a block down the street and spread fear and confusion through the crowd. But Tsarnaev unlike nearly everyone around him looked calm and quickly walked away, the FBI said. Just 10 seconds or so later, the second blast occurred where he had left the knapsack, the FBI said. The FBI did not make it clear whether authorities believe he used his cellphone to detonate one or both of the bombs or whether he was talking to someone. The court papers also said that during the long night of crime Thursday and Friday that led to the older brothers death and the younger ones capture, one of the Tsarnaev brothers told a carjacking victim: Did you hear about the Boston explosion? I did that. The brothers are ethnic Chechens from Russia who have lived in the U.S. for about a decade. Investigators are focusing on a trip the older brother made last year to Chechnya and Dagestan, in a region of Russia that has become a hotbed of separatist politics and Islamic extremism. Tsarnaev was charged with using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction against persons and property, resulting in death. He is also likely to face state charges in connection with the shooting death of an MIT police officer. The Obama administration said it had no choice but to prosecute Tsarnaev in the federal court system. Some politicians had suggested he be tried as an enemy combatant in front of a military tribunal, where defendants are denied some of the usual U.S. constitutional protections. But Tsarnaev is a naturalized U.S. citizen, and under U.S. law, American citizens cannot be tried by military tribunals, White House spokesman Jay Carney said. Carney said that since 9/11, the federal court system has been used to convict and imprison hundreds of terrorists. In its criminal complaint, the FBI said it searched Tsarnaevs dorm room at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth on Sunday and found BBs as well as a white hat and dark jacket that look like those worn by one of one of the suspected bombers in the surveillance photos the FBI released a few days after the attack. Fifty-one victims remained hospitalized Monday, three of them in critical condition. Associated PressLUSHAN, China The tent village that sprang up in two days to house quake survivors in mountainflanked Lushan is no ordinary refugee camp. Chinas full range of disaster response is on display: Trucks with X-ray equipment, phone-charging stations, bank tellers-on-wheels even a tent for insurance claims. The efforts under way Monday in mountainous Sichuan province after a quake Saturday that killed at least 188 people showed that the government has continued to hone its disaster reaction long considered a crucial leadership test in China since a much more devastating earthquake in 2008, also in Sichuan, and another one in 2010 in the western region of Yushu. Lushan was so heavily hit and my familys house toppled. It has been such a disaster for us, said Yue Hejun, 28, as he waited to recharge his familys three mobile phones at a charging stall, volunteered by a communications company and coordinated by the government in a new addition to the arsenal of services after natural disasters. If we can charge our phones, we are at least able to keep in touch with our family members outside and that helps to set our minds at ease. At a mini-clinic with two green cots in the open air and a small tent for doctors to sleep, a doctor said the government has learned the importance of fast coordination since the Yushu quake, which killed more than 2,600 people. Much of the initial relief in that disaster came from Buddhist monks and other nongovernment volunteers, partly because of the remoteness of much of the affected areas. After 24 hours or 48 hours in Yushu, things were not so orderly or settled in, said the doctor, who like many government officials would give only her surname, Luo. The governments quick, organized response is very important. Its no use to blindly come here and try to save people. Wreckage Associated PressFive days after a fertilizer plant explosion, homeowner Ray Rosales sorts through debris Monday in West, Texas. The massive explosion at the West Fertilizer Co. last Wednesday killed 14 people and injured more than 160 others. FBI: No ricin in home of suspectOXFORD, Miss. Investigators havent found any ricin in the house of Mississippi man accused of mailing poisoned letters to President Barack Obama, a U.S. senator and a local judge, according to testimony Monday from an FBI agent. Agent Brandon Grant said that a search of Paul Kevin Curtis vehicle and house in Corinth, Miss., on Friday did not turn up ricin or ingredients for the poison. A search of Curtis computers has found no evidence so far that he researched making ricin. Through his lawyer, Curtis has denied involvement in letters sent to Obama, Mississippi Republican Sen. Roger Wicker and a Lee County, Miss., judge. The letters, bearing a Memphis, Tenn., postmark, were detected beginning April 15. Curtis lawyer said in court that someone may have framed Curtis, suggesting a former co-worker with whom Curtis had an extended exchange of angry emails may have set him up.Bombing might provide leadsWALTHAM, Mass. Authorities in a Boston suburb say they will investigate if any links turn up between a suspect in last weeks Boston Marathon bombing and an unsolved 2011 slaying. Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was pronounced dead early Friday after a shootout with police, was a friend of one of three men found dead in an apartment in Waltham on Sept. 12, 2011, with their necks slit and their bodies reportedly covered with marijuana. Tsarnaevs friend, Brendan Mess, was also a boxer. Middlesex County District Attorneys Office spokeswoman MaryBeth Long told The Associated Press on Monday that her office will not reveal details of its investigation, but said investigators would follow up if the bombing probe provides any new clues into the slaying.Man killed girlfriend, othersFEDERAL WAY, Wash. Police said a man killed his live-in girlfriend at an apartment complex south of Seattle then fatally shot three men, including one who had phoned 911 to report hearing gunfire. Arriving officers found a chaotic scene in Federal Way on Sunday night. Authorities said officers twice shot at the suspect in a stairway and in a parking lot. The 28-year-old suspect also died at the scene. Federal Way Police Chief Brian Wilson said authorities first received reports of suspicious circumstances about 9:35 p.m. Sunday.

The head of detectives for Nicaraguas National Police force said Toth was detained near the Honduran border. Glenda Zavala said Monday that Toth had been detained Saturday, based on an international detention request. The former Washington, D.C., elementary school teacher faces accusations he possessed and produced child pornography. He lost his teaching job in 2008 after another teacher found images of child pornography on a school camera in Toths possession. He then disappeared. The FBI had offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the 31-year-old Toth.Two arrested in Canada terror plotTORONTO Two men were arrested and charged with plotting a terrorist attack against a Canadian passenger train with support from alQaida, police said Monday. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Monday that Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser, who live in Montreal and Toronto areas, were conspiring to carry out an attack against Via Rail, but posed no immediate threat. It was definitely in the planning stage but not imminent, RCMP chief superintendent Jennifer Strachan told reporters. Charges against the two men include conspiring to carry out an attack and murder people in association with a terrorist group. Police said the men are not Canadian citizens, but declined to say where they were from. Police said the men had direction and guidance from members of al-Qaida. The investigation was part of a cross-border operation involving Canadian law enforcement agencies, the FBI and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.Myanmar unrest ethnic cleansingBANGKOK A leading international rights group is accusing authorities in Myanmar, including senior Buddhist monks, of organizing a campaign of ethnic cleansing against the countrys Rohingya Muslim minority. Human Rights Watch on Monday described a series of bloody attacks last year that killed hundreds of people and forced 125,000 from their homes as crimes against humanity that the government of President Thein Sein has yet to punish. The New York-based group said ethnic Rakhine nationalists from a powerful political party in western Rakhine state, along with senior Buddhist monks, encouraged coordinated attacks on Muslim neighborhoods.

High-tech quake zone in China Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Flight delays pile up Monday Associated PressNEW YORK It was a tough start to the week for many air travelers. Flight delays piled up all along the East Coast Monday as thousands of air traffic controllers were forced to take an unpaid day off because of federal budget cuts. Some flights into New York, Baltimore and Washington were delayed by more than two hours as the Federal Aviation Administration kept planes on the ground because there werent enough controllers to monitor busy air corridors. One out of every five flights at New Yorks LaGuardia International scheduled to take off before noon on Monday was delayed 15 minutes or more, according to flight tracking service FlightAware. Last Monday morning, just 2 percent of LaGuardias flights were delayed. The situation was similar at Washingtons Reagan National Airport, in Newark, N.J., and in Philadelphia. Some flights were late by two hours or more. The furloughs are part of mandatory budget cuts that kicked in March 1 after Democrats and Republicans missed a deadline to agree on a long-term deficit reduction plan. FAA officials have said they have no choice but to furlough all 47,000 agency employees, including nearly 15,000 air traffic controllers. Each employee will lose one day of work every other week. The FAA has said planes will have to take off and land less frequently, so as not to overload the remaining controllers on duty. Monday is typically one of the busiest days at airports, with many business travelers setting out for a week on the road. The FAAs controller cuts a 10 percent reduction of its staff went into effect Sunday, but the full force wasnt felt until Monday morning. Delta Air Lines said it was disappointed in the furloughs and warned travelers Monday to expect delays in the following cities: New York, Philadelphia, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego.

SEANARNOLD CorrespondentLECANTO Seven Lecanto errors and a four-hit, complete-game performance from West Port senior Alec Jewell helped the fifth-seeded Wolf Pack eliminate the No. 4 seed Panthers from the District 6A-6 baseball tournament with a 10-4 victory at LHS on Monday. West Port (4-17 overall) rallied for four runs in both the third and seventh innings, with a combined eight hits and four Lecanto errors, to capture its first district win of the season and advance to todays semifinal round at Central High for a 5 p.m. game against top seed Citrus (12-13). After falling behind 6-0 in the top of the third, the Panthers (9-14 overall) began chipping away at the Wolf Pack advantage with a run in the third on an RBI single by senior pitcher Joey Spell, two in the fourth off a triple by junior third baseman Levi OSteen and one more in the fifth by senior center fielder Scott Stearns, who stole second and third base and scored on a wild pitch after reaching on a hit-batter. But West Port put it out of reach in the seventh as it batted around the order with five hits. Spell yielded seven hits, two walks and a hit-batter while fanning one in three innings, but only one of the Wolf Packs six runs against him were earned, as Lecanto totaled four costly errors between the second and third innings. Senior Shawn Supinski struck out two West Port batters and surrendered two walks and six hits in four innings of relief. Joey (Spell) did good, Lecanto coach Dave Logue said. He pitched his butt off and other than some locations on a few pitches, he did everything I could ask him to do. Its a lot easier to play with the lead. The Panthers struck out seven times in the game against Jewell and failed to muster a hit in the final three innings. Youve got to give Jewell credit, Logue said. He battled us and mostly threw strikes, while keeping us off balance with his curveball. We couldnt catch up to his fastball, bottom line. We got the best of him earlier in the year, but when you make seven errors and walk that many, while giving up probably more than five 0-2 and 1-2 count hits, your chances of winning are going to be tough. Its a tough loss. I was hoping we could make it to play Citrus, but it wasnt the way it turned out. Jewell was 3 for 5 at the plate to pace the Wolf Pack which stranded 11 base runners while senior right fielder Alex Hansen (2 for 4), junior designated hitter Kavelin Rummalo and sophomore shortstop Jesus Rivera each had two hits. We were on our A game tonight, thats for sure, West Port head coach Chris Wisman said. Alec (Jewell) was great, offensively and pitching. Everyone was hitting the ball and the defense really stepped up after having some problems this year. We let a couple slip away against Lecanto this year and the kids came out fired up. They had a game plan and they knew they could win. Associated PressTAMPA Darrelle Revis walked into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers weight room and received a round of applause from some of his new teammates. The warm reception meant a lot to Revis. The three-time All-Pro may have left the New York Jets feeling underappreciated, but hes a welcome addition to a defense that ranked last in the NFL last season and is expected to help transform the Bucs into a playoff team. And, the well-paid Revis is confident hes up to the task. Were going to make a lot of noise. Dont worry about that, the seventh-year pro said Monday. I think this was a great move on my part to be a part of this organization. The star cornerback acquired from the Jets said hes going to do my best to play up to expectations that come with a new six-year, $96 million contract. He also insisted during a news conference that he holds no grudges against his old team, which was reluctant to give a player coming off surgery to repair a torn knee ligament such a commitment. I have nothing to prove to the New York Jets, Revis said. I have nothing to prove to anybody. Weeks of reports about the 27-year-olds future ended Sunday when the Jets traded Revis to the Bucs in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this weeks NFL draft and another selection next year.

PETERSBURG Matt Moore became the first Rays pitcher to win his first four starts of a season, Ryan Roberts homered twice and Tampa Bay beat CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees 5-1 on Monday night. Moore (4-0) allowed one run, two hits, three walks and had nine strikeouts over eight innings. Roberts connected in the first and third to help the Rays take an early 5-0 lead. Yankees infielder Kevin Youkilis, who left Saturdays game at Toronto with lower back stiffness, was a late scratch Monday after the back tightened up following batting practice. Sabathia (3-2) had a threegame winning streak end. The left-hander gave up five runs and seven hits over seven innings. Tampa Bay has won 12 of its last 14 home games against the Yankees dating back to July 2011. Kyle Farnsworth completed the two-hitter. The Rays took a 4-0 lead in the first. After Roberts hit a solo homer on an 0-2 pitch from Sabathia, Evan Longoria singled and scored on Sean Rodriguezs triple. Yunel Escobar then put Tampa Bay up 4-0 with a two-run shot. Roberts homered again in the third to make it 5-0. It was his third career multihomer game. Sabathia had given up just one homer over 28 innings in his four previous starts this season. Robinson Cano cut the deficit to 5-1 on a homer in the fourth inning, which was New Yorks first hit. The Yankees have homered in all nine of their road games this year, matching the teams longest streak since 2000. The second game of the series tonight has AL CY Young Award winner David Price (0-1) facing New Yorks Phil Hughes (0-2). The Rays have lost Prices four starts this season, which is the fifth time, and first since Tom Glavine in 1999, that a reigning Cy Young Award winners team has lost his first four starts. Revis introduced in Tampa Citrus claims county crown Beat Panthers, Pirates for flag football titleJUSTINPLANTE CorrespondentLECANTO Two games, one champion. Monday night at Lecanto High School gave way to two intensely competitive flag football games with all three county teams vying for the same prize the right to be called county champs. The format was simple. Crystal River High School, after finishing the regular season with the best record, got the privilege of sitting out the first game of the day while the second and third seeds, Citrus and Lecanto, battled it out for the right to play in the final game of the year against the Pirates. Lecanto held the home field advantage and Crystal River would get to rest before the final game, but unfortunately for both teams, neither would really play a difference. It was the opportunistic offense of the Lady Canes and wideout Lindsay Connors four total touchdowns on the night that would crown Citrus as county champs, beating Lecanto 18-6 in the first game and Crystal River 25-12 in the second. The final score of the Lecanto-Citrus game is deceptive, with the majority of the game being played at a 6-0 stalemate in favor of the Lady Canes following an early touchdown reception by Connors. Lecantos ever-improving defense shut the Lady Canes down on every drive attempt in the first half following the initial score, forcing two interceptions in the process. Citrus defense found itself just as successful, forcing three first-half turnovers and a 3-andout.

B2TUESDAY, APRIL23, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMAJORLEAGUEBASEBALL Associated PressBOSTON Mike Napoli hit a grand slam and drove in five runs, Will Middlebrooks busted out of a slump with a three-run homer and the Boston Red Sox rebounded from a doubleheader sweep by beating the Oakland Athletics 9-6 on Monday night. The Red Sox, swept by Kansas City in a split-doubleheader Sunday, scored three runs in the fourth and five in the fifth. Napolis fourth career slam keyed the five-run fifth and helped end Oaklands eightgame winning streak against Boston. The Athletics dropped their season-high fourth straight after being swept in a three-game series at the Tampa Bay Rays over the weekend. Oaklands winning streak against Boston was its longest in franchise history since the Philadelphia Athletics won eight in row in 1932. Felix Doubront (2-0) struggled with his control, but got the win on a night with wind chills in the 30s. He allowed three runs on three hits, walking five. He also threw two wild pitches and struck out eight in 6 2/3 innings. A.J. Griffin (2-1) was tagged for a career-worst nine runs seven earned and eight hits in four-plus innings. Dustin Pedroia went 0 for 5, ending his streak of reaching base safely in each of Bostons first 18 games. Trailing 2-1 in the fourth, the Red Sox jumped in front when the slumping Middlebrooks belted his homer. Napoli was hit by a pitch and Daniel Nava doubled down the left field line before Middlebrooks, just 4 for his last 43 since hitting three homers in Toronto on April 7, homered into the Green Monster seats. Chris Youngs sacrifice fly cut it to 4-3 in the fifth, but the Athletics left the bases loaded. Boston then broke it open with Napolis slam. Shane Victorino singled leading off and Pedroia reached on a fielders choice. Second baseman Andy Parrino dropped a throw at second trying to get a force on the play. David Ortiz then walked before Napoli hit an 0-1 pitch into the first row of Monster seats into deep left-center. Jarrod Saltalamacchia added an RBI double off reliever Chris Resop, making it 9-3.AMERICAN LEAGUE Orioles 2, Blue Jays 1BALTIMORE Nick Markakis singled home the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, giving the Baltimore Orioles a 2-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. Toronto reliever Aaron Loup (1-2) began the ninth by hitting Chris Davis with a pitch. After a sacrifice bunt, Steve Pearce popped out and Nolan Reimold received an intentional walk before Alexi Casilla reached on a throwing error by shortstop Munenori Kawasaki that loaded the bases. Markakis then sliced an 0-2 pitch to the opposite field near the left-field line. Jim Johnson (1-1) worked a perfect ninth for the Orioles, now 5-2 on a nine-game homestand that ends Wednesday.Indians 3, White Sox 2CHICAGO Asdrubal Cabrera hit a clutch two-run single in his return to the lineup and the Cleveland Indians used a throwing error by reliever Matt Thornton to rally for a 3-2 victory over the sloppy Chicago White Sox. Justin Masterson (4-1) pitched seven effective innings to help the Indians win their third straight. They have won three of four this season against the White Sox. Cleveland had runners on first and second with one out in the eighth when Thornton threw wildly to second while trying to pick off Drew Stubbs. Both runners moved up as the ball went into center field. Jason Kipnis struck out for the second out, but Cabrera hit a liner to center to give Cleveland a 3-2 lead. He clapped his hands as he rounded first following the big hit.Mariners 7, Astros 1HOUSTON Felix Hernandez pitched six scoreless innings for his 100th career win and Seattle homered three times to back him up in a 7-1 victory over the Houston Astros. Hernandez (2-2) reached the milestone in his fourth try to join Jamie Moyer (145) and Randy Johnson (130) as the only pitchers to reach 100 wins with the Mariners. Hernandez allowed five hits and struck out nine to lower his ERA to 2.08. Kyle Seager, Jesus Montero and Kendrys Morales all homered for the Mariners, who snapped a three-game losing streak. Rick Ankiel hit a solo homer for the Astros, who fell to 5-14 for the secondworst start in franchise history. They opened 4-20 in 1969, according to STATS.NATIONAL LEAGUE Cardinals 3, Nationals 2WASHINGTON Yadier Molina drove in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning, backing Shelby Millers strong start, and the St. Louis Cardinals returned to the site of their Game 5 NL division series victory last season with a 3-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. The other big hit for St. Louis was Allen Craigs two-run double in the third. Miller (3-1) struck out eight in 6 2/3 innings, allowing two runs and four hits. All the Cardinals runs came against Dan Haren (1-3), who gave up three runs and six hits in five-plus innings. Edward Mujica pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his second save. The Cardinals have alternated wins and losses over their last nine games. Washington has lost seven of 10.Phillies 3, Pirates 2PHILADELPHIA Jimmy Rollins hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth, Jonathan Pettibone had an impressive major league debut and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-2. Pettibone allowed two runs and six hits, striking out six in 5 1/3 innings. The righty was pulled after 83 pitches and didnt get a decision. Pedro Alvarez and Russell Martin hit solo homers for the Pirates. On a chilly night when the temperature dipped below 50 degrees, the Phillies scratched out their second straight win to improve to 9-11. Pirates starter A.J. Burnett gave up two runs and five hits, fanning seven in five innings. Jared Hughes (1-2) retired the first two batters he faced in the sixth before running into trouble.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE more of the same out of the gate, but Citrus diverse attack would lead to two more passing touchdowns, another to Connors and one to receiver Paige Antonelli in the corner of the end zone. The Panthers would not go away easily. With just under two minutes left to play, Lecanto quarterback Veronica Hamilton found receiver Amanda Pitre open just behind Citrus coverage, and Pitre was off to the races from there. The pass, which was the longest play from scrimmage in any county game played this year, went for more than 60 yards and gave the Panthers their first touchdown of the season and a silver lining, as their season came to a close with the final buzzer. The win for the Lady Canes set up a highly anticipated rubber match against a Crystal River team that they, just one week ago, came to blows with following the game. The altercation left several Citrus and Crystal River players sidelined for the rest of the season. A quick interception return for a touchdown by Miller and a good extra point made it 7-0 Citrus within the first three minutes of the game. And on the very next play from scrimmage, Payton Wells stepped in front of another Casidy Newcomer pass to put Citrus right back into scoring range. Two plays later, Connors found herself again in the end zone, and just like that, the Pirates were staring at a 13-0 deficit with just over six minutes played. Those turnovers hurt us, Crystal River coach Ben Bennett said. We were having someone else step into offense; because we lost another one of our starters this morning, so that was something we werent used to. We just had a hard time clicking, and Citrus is quick, man. Following the two quick scores, the game evened out, with Crystal River putting itself on the board on the very next possession with a Jasmyne Eason jump-ball touchdown. The Lady Canes would score on two of the next four drives one of which took up nine minutes of the second quarter while Crystal River was held to just one more Eason touchdown. Connors, who scored four of her teams seven total touchdowns during the double header, was extremely happy with how her team kept focused, despite the events that unfolded following the previous meeting. We knew coming in that we would have to keep our heads up, she said. We needed to work hard, and make sure we play until the final horn, which is what we did. I think those first two touchdowns of the game were huge momentum swings, and we kind of just coasted off of that from there. The win made Citrus the first-ever county champs in a sport that is only just beginning to flourish in the area. Im excited that we got to be the inaugural team this year, Connors said. But it stinks that this is the only year I get to play. It was a lot of fun. Following the game, both head coaches had nothing but good things to say about the season, as well as their opposition. This season was awesome, Bennett said. The girls played great and, minus that bump at the end there, everything was fun. Citrus Coach Mary Kalbaugh was just as enthusiastic following the game. We really had no idea what to expect coming into this season, she said. But I think it went awesome. I know I had fun, and I think all of the girls had fun. Im sad its over, but we know there will be plenty of flag football played in the future. unique contract that includes no guaranteed money. The contract will take care of itself, he said. Ive just got to go out and play. The Buccaneers not only are banking on Revis to be physically ready to open the season in September against yes the Jets, but believe hes far enough long in his recovery to reasonably expect hell be able to get on the field for the start of training camp this summer. We did our due diligence, general manager Mark Dominik said, or else we wouldnt have made a deal of this magnitude. Revis was entering the final year of a contract that would have paid him $6 million in 2013, $10 million less than hell receive annually with Tampa Bay. His old contract also included a clause that would have prevented the Jets from using the franchise or transition tag on him next year. So rather than risk the chance of losing Revis as a free agent in 2014 without receiving as much compensation as the cornerback would have commanded now, the Jets decided to trade him. Tampa Bay, which was more than $32 million under the salary cap, was thought to be the most likely suitor. We felt it was one of those win-win situations for both organizations, Dominik said. The teams agreed to compensation last Thursday. Dominik then received permission to contact Revis agents to begin discussions on a long-term contract and eventually flew the cornerback to town for a physical on Sunday. Revis said he met Idzik for the first time last week and that the Jets GM told him he wanted the cornerback to remain in New York. Asked if he felt Idzik had been untruthful, Revis said: Yeah. ... I felt that type of vibe. At the same time, the seventh-year pro said hes not bitter about how his stay in New York ended. He admitted he felt some type of way when he learned the Jets were willing to trade him, but insisted hes not upset. Its over. It happens. Ive got to move on. Its a new chapter in my life, Revis said. I dont have a sour taste in my mouth. Not at all. Instead, the cornerback said hes focused on doing everything he can to get back on the field and help his new team. The Bucs, 7-9 a year ago, havent made the playoffs since 2007. They havent won a postseason game since winning their only Super Bowl in 2002. Revis hardly considers himself a savior. He said hes joining a talented team with a playoff-caliber roster even without him, citing quarterback Josh Freeman, receiver Vincent Jackson and running back Doug Martin by name. Jackson and Martin made the Pro Bowl last season, and Freeman is coming off a year in which he became Tampa Bays first 4,000-yard passer. I can go down the list of players we have on this team. We have some great guys. That was one of the things me and my (agents) looked at to be part of this organization. We have some guys who can already play, Revis said. And as for beginning the next phase of his career by returning to New York to face the Jets? Its going to be fun, he said, a smile spreading across his face. Its Week 1. You cant go around it, you cant go over it.

The decision was announced Monday, which will make it bowl-eligible as it moves into the American Athletic Conference this season. In a release the NCAA wrote that its Committee on Infractions determined the football postseason ban is excessive such that it constitutes an abuse of discretion. UCFs was originally issued the ban as part of sanctions levied last July for major recruiting violations in football and basketball. It also received a one-year postseason ban in basketball, $50,000 fine, five years probation, reduction of basketball scholarships, and limits on football recruiting. The postseason ban was the lone penalty UCF appealed and allowed the Knights to participate in the Beef OBradys Bowl in 2012.NC man rolls 1st PBA 900 series at The VillagesTHE VILLAGES A North Carolina man has rolled the first 900 series in Professional Bowlers Association history three straight perfect games. Joe Scarborough of Charlotte opened the first round of qualifying in the PBA50 Sun Bowl on Sunday with three games of 300, throwing 36 consecutive strikes. Scarborough is a 50-year-old self-employed electrical contractor who was competing in his second event in the renamed PBA Senior Tour. The PBA said Norm Duke bowled three consecutive 300s in a standard PBA Tour event in 1996, but the performance didnt count as a 900 series because he ended one round with two perfect games and started the next round with the third. Scarborough said he was pretty surprised. He insists he wasnt nervous. Instead, he pretended he was at home practicing.From staff amd wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

B4TUESDAY, APRIL23, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Associated PressNEW YORK Get me out of here. Maneuvering to move down in Thursday nights first round of the draft will be a common behind-the-scenes scramble. There simply are few franchisetype players teams will be enamored of, yet plenty of depth to make picking up extra picks later on a worthwhile strategy. The big bodies will dominate the opening round. Look for 17 of them to go in the top 32 at Radio City Music Hall. The mock draft presumes no trades (but 100 percent accuracy). 1. KANSAS CITY (2-14) The Chiefs already have their quarterback not that it is worth taking one at the top this year and a good running game. The guy who could be the cornerstone for the entire offense, as well as QB Alex Smiths protector for next few years, plays left tackle. LUKE JOECKEL, OT, TEXAS A&M 2. JACKSONVILLE (2-14) Unlike the Chiefs, the Jaguars are virtually devoid of talent everywhere. So anyone they choose will be an upgrade. Theres talk they could jettison Blaine Gabbert, their first-round pick two years ago, and go for Geno Smith at quarterback. Theyd love to trade down, but if not, theyll upgrade the pass rush and defensive athleticism instead. DION JORDAN, DE-OLB, OREGON 3. OAKLAND (4-12) By far the worst team in drafts over the last decade. But now theres a new regime under Reggie McKenzie, who learned his trade in Green Bay, one of the best drafting clubs of recent years. Like Jacksonville, Oakland could go anywhere with this pick, but is less likely to look to move down. ERIC FISHER, OT, CENTRAL MICHIGAN 4. PHILADELPHIA (4-12) The Chip Kelly no-holdsbarred, breakneck offense needs speedy playmakers, something the Eagles already have. What they dont have: enough bigtime defenders. They go for a huge one in ... SHARRIF FLOYD, DT, FLORIDA 5. DETROIT (4-12) Coming off a distressing collapse in which they gave up 437 points, the Lions must find a way to close the wide-open door to their end zone. Theyre fortunate to have several options here, and go for the pass rusher. ZIGGY ANSAH, DE, BYU 6. CLEVELAND (5-11) After holding their breath that the cornerback they seek will be on the board the previous three teams all have a need there the Browns can exhale and call the name ... DEE MILLINER, CB, ALABAMA 7. ARIZONA (5-11) If they cant trade down, the Cardinals wont have to swallow hard to upgrade their offensive line with a proven winner and another Crimson Tide player. CHANCE WARMACK, G, ALABAMA 8. BUFFALO (6-10) Every team puts up smoke screens before the draft. And the Bills sure seem to have polluted the air with them because we think they arent convinced Kevin Kolb or Tarvaris Jackson is more than a backup or fillin QB. So the first quarterback off the board is ... GENO SMITH, QB, WEST VIRGINIA 9. NEW YORK JETS (6-10) Having finally dealt Darrelle Revis, the Jets could look at a cornerback here, perhaps FSUs Xavier Rhodes. And, yes, they might have considered Smith. But someone who can get to the quarterback from the outside is a must for Rex Ryans defense. BARKEVIOUS MINGO, DE-OLB, LSU 10. TENNESSEE (6-10) The Titans sang a sour song on defense all through 2012, so its time to fix some of that in Music City. They might look at the offensive line, but their needs are so hefty on D, and there are lots of solid prospects on the board. Such as ... JARVIS JONES, LB, GEORGIA 11. SAN DIEGO (7-9) Another team starting over after the talent base was erased by ill-advised moves in the last few years. New coach Mike McCoy is offense-minded, and he sees all the holes on the line. LANE JOHNSON, OT, OKLAHOMA 12. MIAMI (7-9) After the Dolphins made so many splashes in free agency, they can afford to fill a void, especially when one of the better offensive linemen still is available. JONATHAN COOPER, G, NORTH CAROLINA 13. NEW YORK JETS (6-10) They didnt miss on Rhodes, but they will consider an offensive playmaker here such as Tavon Austin or DeAndre Hopkins. In the end, the back end on defense will be the target, and because this seems too high to take a safety, New York grabs ... XAVIER RHODES, CB, FLORIDA STATE 14. CAROLINA (7-9) The Panthers will be tempted to go back to the big guys. Then they will spot the little guy with the gamebreaking skills on kick returns, as a receiver and even perhaps in a version of the wildcat. They cant resist ... TAVON AUSTIN, WR, WEST VIRGINIA 15. NEW ORLEANS (7-9) The Saints will take about 10 seconds of their allotted time to write down their pick, instantly improving their pass rush with a guy with good feel for getting to the quarterback and plenty of upside. BJOERN WERNER, DE, FLORIDA STATE 16. ST. LOUIS (7-8-1) St. Louis would have liked a shot at Austin receiver definitely is a need and could go for one here. But with another pick coming up soon where they can get a pass catcher, the Rams opt for the best safety in this draft. KENNY VACCARO, S, TEXAS 17. PITTSBURGH (8-8) As the Steelers keep insisting they are not a team in transition, one look at the roster says otherwise. Free agency losses hurt them, and they lack the depth theyve had in their contending seasons. The first upgrade this year is ... STAR LOTULELEI, DT, UTAH 18. DALLAS (8-8) They would have loved Vaccaro in their secondary. The Rams spoiled that, and the Cowboys consider bolstering their backfield and offensive line before taking the best man still unclaimed. SYLVESTER WILLIAMS, DT, NORTH CAROLINA 19. NEW YORK GIANTS (9-7) As the noise in the theater reaches a crescendo, with chants from blue-shirted Giants fans of MAN-TI, MANTI, the Giants indeed fill their need for an inside linebacker with good instincts, passion and leadership skills. ARTHUR BROWN, ILB, KANSAS STATE 20. CHICAGO (10-6) There wont be as much noise when the Bears step up. There will be the same need for a linebacker, especially with Brian Urlacher gone. They find their man in Athens, Ga., a player who could play inside or outside. ALEC OGLETREE, LB, GEORGIA 21. CINCINNATI (10-6) With the Andre Smith free agency situation still cloudy do the Bengals really want him back? Cincinnati makes a move to put pressure on the veteran. Or to let him walk. D.J. FLUKER, OT, ALABAMA 22. ST. LOUIS (10-6), pick from Washington Wisely, the Rams went with Vaccaro at No. 16 and still get the wideout to boost their passing game at this spot. DEANDRE HOPKINS, WR, CLEMSON 23. MINNESOTA (10-6) With two selections in the next three slots, Minnesota is going to help itself on defense both times. First up, yes, the Vikings see plenty of value in that Notre Dame linebacker. MANTI TEO, ILB, NOTRE DAME 24. INDIANAPOLIS (11-5) Seeking a pass rusher to replace Dwight Freeney, the Colts look at Damontre Moore of Texas A&M, Datrone Jones of UCLA and Alex Okafor of Texas. Moore is most ready to step in. DAMONTRE MOORE, DE, TEXAS A&M 25. MINNESOTA (10-6), pick from Seattle More help for the interior defense in a real bargain this late in the first round. Although the Vikes are tempted to go for a wideout, they see excellent value in ... SHELDON RICHARDSON, DT, MISSOURI 26. GREEN BAY (11-5) The Packers never expected to be in this position, choosing between the best running back in this crop, the two best tight ends or an effective defensive tackle who never stops coming. Does the question become which helps Aaron Rodgers more, a pass catcher or a running back? TYLER EIFERT, TE, NOTRE DAME 27. HOUSTON (12-4) Houston has a very obvious need: finding a receiver to complement the superb but aging Andre Johnson. That void has been a major reason the Texans flopped in the playoffs the last two years. There are three possible choices for that position, and the answer is ... CORDARRELLE PATTERSON, WR, TENNESSEE 28. DENVER (13-3) Getting past the Elvis Dumervil error that made him a free agent will be a whole lot easier when the Broncos find a nice replacement and a surprise firstrounder who impressed with 4 1-2 sacks in the Alamo Bowl. ALEX OKAFOR, DE, TEXAS 29. NEW ENGLAND (12-4) Predicting anything Bill Belichick will do, other than scowl or wear a hoodie, is impossible. Clearly, the Patriots need help virtually everywhere on defense, although they should be a runaway winner in the AFC East even if they skip all their picks. Now that would be different for Belichick. MATT ELAM, S, FLORIDA 30. ATLANTA (13-3) After giving lots of thought to Alabama RB Eddie Lacy, Atlanta backs off and turns to a defensive unit damaged in the offseason by cuts and defections. With visions of defending Brees and Newton twice a season, they go for ... DESMOND TRUFANT, CB, WASHINGTON 31. SAN FRANCISCO (11-4-1) The Niners almost won the Super Bowl, and they are loaded heading into the draft. So much so that they dont have to flinch about grabbing the best guy on their board. No selection for need here. JESSE WILLIAMS, DT, ALABAMA 32. BALTIMORE (10-6) The 2013 Ravens already dont resemble the team that won the championship. Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Anquan Boldin, Dannell Ellerbe, Paul Kruger and Bernard Pollard all gone. But GM Ozzie Newsome is one of the best talent evaluators around. Hell get this pick right.

Head and neck cancer check: Jim Paynes story CHARLESLAWRENCE For the ChronicleCitrus Springs resident and community center aide Jim Payne is a survivor of head and neck cancer. He was first diagnosed in February 2012 after seeing an ear, nose and throat specialist when he felt an irritation in his throat and food began to take on a different taste. Doctors initially misdiagnosed him with strep throat. A biopsy at the base of his tongue revealed a tumor. Payne was immediately referred to the Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute in Lecanto for radiation and chemotherapy treatment. He received 33 radiation treatments, twice a day and three chemotherapy treatments. Payne was diagnosed two weeks after coming back from his honeymoon. Eventually he was fed through a feeding tube, lost his voice, couldnt swallow, and lost a significant amount of weight. Payne was out of work for about seven months while he underwent treatment as the therapy made him very weak. Its common in heavy drinkers and smokers, but Im not either one of those, he said. Paynes wife, Monica, said that finding out he had cancer was shocking at first. It was terrible to watch him go through it, she said. When he had to get fed through a feeding tube, it was really scary. He was dehydrated and couldnt swallow. Even when he was able to eat on his own, it took an hour to eat breakfast. According to Payne, his type of cancer is 90 percent curable if you get screened early. Get checked out if you have any symptoms that concern you, Payne said. The last time I had a CAT and PET scan, everything was clear, he said. So, apparently, no cancer. Im just trying to Painin theneckHEALTH& LIFE One of the great things about living in Florida is the beautiful weather we have most of the year. But that same benefit leads to the very high numbers of skin cancer diagnosed in this state every year. For years, we have been seeing an increase in the number of melanoma skin cancers diagnosed a bad sign, since melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer. But now, research suggests the powerful aspirin may actually lower the risk of developing melanoma skin cancer for some people. For postmenopausal Caucasian women, aspirin use is associated Aspirin a day See BENNETT/ Page C4 Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Advance in cancer screening Screening for cancer is an extremely important tool in the fight against cancer. It helps us detect early cancers, which are lot more curable than advanced cancer. This is done routinely for many cancers, e.g. breast cancer, cervical cancer, colon cancer or prostate cancer. New evidence suggests screening spiral CT scan in lung cancer also helps and should be done in heavy smokers or former smokers. For every screening there is a common problem. We need to screen a Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a common problem many women endure. The symptom is uncontrolled loss of urine with increased abdominal pressure due to coughing, laughing, lifting or standing from a sitting position. The problem is related to the weakened urethral sphincter or the pelvic floor muscles that support the bladder. It has been estimated that almost 15 million women in the U.S. are affected and is severe enough to affect the lifestyle in a third of the patients. Many women do not seek medical attention, as they consider the condition a normal part of aging or normal result of childbirth. But the condition does not have to be accepted as normal, and many treatments are available to alleviate the symptoms. Pelvic floor strengthening using Kegel exercises have been known to improve mild to moderate stress incontinence. When conservative treatments for stress incontinence fail or are inadequate, surgeons usually rely on minimally invasive sling procedures that use a narrow, hammock-like mesh placed using a small vaginal incision. The surgery carries a high success rate, but may not be suitable for all patients. Some older patients who are frail, patients who have failed previous surgery or those that are unable to have general or spinal anesthesia may have a new alternative in the form of a an Alternative to surgery for stress urinary incontinence See KUMAR/ Page C4 Section CTUESDAY, APRIL 23, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE INSIDE Dr. Frank Vascimini /Page C3Dr. Richard Hoffmann /Page C3 Dr. C.

Although trends of tobacco use are decreasing, tobacco and alcohol still remain a traditional cause and risk factor for these types of cancer. Cancer in these areas can remain elusive, and sometimes are not recognized until it is advanced, and in some cases too late. If caught and diagnosed early, these types of cancers are easier to treat, and success rates and survival rates have greatly increased over the years.

Younger adults are also at great risk because of an increase in a virus called HPV, or Human Papillomavirus, which is a cancer-causing viral infection that is transmitted by oral sex. Often, the lesions associated with oral cancer can go unchecked, however there are some things that should make one more concerned, such as an ulcer or sore in your mouth that does not heal and completely go away and/or increases in size. A persistent, unexplainable pain in your mouth, neck and ear; the latter of which is usually because some nerves that serve the throat also serve the ear, and ear pain is typically a referred type of pain, and not because the ear is involved. Lumps, bumps or white or red patches inside the mouth, tongue and throat can be signs, as well. Functional signs, such as difficulty breathing, speaking, chewing and/or swallowing can occur. Soreness, or raw sensation in the throat can also be an indicator, as well as changes in ones voice or a lump sensation in the throat. A lump or bump on the neck could indicate an enlargement of a lymph node that could be directly related to a cancerous growth in the throat should be treated very seriously. As with any type of disease, early diagnosis and treatment greatly increases your chances of having a good outcome and surviving the disease. So remember, when you are at the doctor or dentist, ask him to check your oral cavity to make sure that everything looks good. If you think you have any of the previously mentioned symptoms and/or warning signs, seek medical attention as soon as possible, particularly if you have any of the previously mentioned risk factors.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

My six front teeth on the top are crowned, with root canals. However, on one of the front ones, the actual tooth beneath the crown is breaking. Is it possible to get an upper partial with the back teeth and only one front tooth? I do not want to have to pull the other five that are crowned. Thank you. A: This is a very good question. The simple answer to your question is, yes. However, as with many things, you could have circumstances that could make the answer, maybe, or even no. If all of your front teeth are separate from each other it is easy to remove the problem tooth and make a partial around the others. However, there are many times that six crowns in the front of the mouth are what we call, splinted (or joined together in one piece). If this is the case and there was good enough reason to hold on to all of the remaining teeth, the dentist could section the problem tooth from the splinted ones and remove the tooth along with the crown. This can be a very difficult thing to do, and in most cases, the dentist will not guarantee the success because during the sectioning process porcelain can be broken away from the rest of the bridge, leaving an unsightly result to work with. This being said, if time is taken and things are not rushed, more often than not, the result is successful. But what happens if some of those other teeth are not worth the effort? Maybe they are at risk of being lost soon, or there is decay, or even an abscess. Depending on the particular circumstances your dentist will give you his or her opinion. It will be your decision on what you should do from that point. Again, if things are explained in detail you will usually get a feel for how successful your dentist thinks things will turn out. I would love to tell you the answer is a definite yes; however, you can see that it is important to see your dentist so that he or she can assess the situation and give you your options. If you are a regular reader of this column you already know this: Be sure to listen to your dentist and ask whatever questions you need the answer to in order to make a good decision. Communication is everything, especially in a situation like yours. I hope this has helped you. Good luck. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

What about temporary tattoos? A: This is a timely question and the FDA has recently (2013) provided some useful information for consumers regarding the safety of temporary tattoos. Temporary tattoos typically last from three days to several weeks, depending on the product used for coloring and the condition of the skin. Unlike permanent tattoos, which are injected into the skin, temporary tattoos marketed as henna are applied to the skins surface. Temporary, however, does not mean risk-free. Some consumers report reactions that may be severe and long outlast the temporary tattoos themselves. MedWatch, the FDAs safety information and adverse event (bad side effects) reporting program, has received reports of serious and long-lasting reactions that consumers had not bargained for after getting temporary tattoos. Reported problems include redness, blisters, raised red weeping lesions, loss of pigmentation, increased sensitivity to sunlight and even permanent scarring. Some reactions have led people to seek medical care, including visits to hospital emergency rooms. Reactions may occur immediately after a person gets a temporary tattoo, or even up to two or three weeks later. A number of consumers have learned the risks the hard way, reporting significant bad reactions shortly after the application of black henna temporary tattoos. The parents of a 5-yearold girl reported she developed severe reddening on her forearm about two weeks after receiving a black henna temporary tattoo. The mother of a 17-yearold girl reported the temporary tattoo became red and itchy and later began to blister and the blisters filled with fluid. And another mother, whose teenager had no reaction to red henna tattoos, described the skin on her daughters back as blistered and raw after a black henna tattoo was applied there. She reported that, according to her daughters doctor, the teenager will have scarring for life. If you have a reaction to or concern about a temporary tattoo or any other cosmetic, in addition to recommending you contact your health care professional, the FDA asks you to contact MedWatch, the agencys problem-reporting program. You can also call 800-FDA1088 to report by telephone, or contact the nearest FDA consumer complaint coordinator in your area.Richard P.

Dr. Frank VasciminiSOUND BITES Richard HoffmannASK THE PHARMACIST recover from the treatment, but physically I feel fine. Dr. Tim Brant, a radiation oncologist with the Robert Boissoneault Oncology Institute, said the biggest types of risk factors associated with head and neck cancer are heavy tobacco use, heavy drinking and being infected with the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), the most common being heavy drinking and smoking. According to the National Cancer Institute at the NIH, other risk factors for head and neck cancer are occupational exposure to wood dust and people who work in construction, metal, textile, ceramic, logging and food industries are also at increased risk for this type of cancer. Its a disease that occurs in adults and is almost never seen in children, Brant said. According to Dr. Brant, head and neck cancer symptoms to look out for are sores in the mouth that could or could not be painful and that wont heal, difficulty swallowing, unexplained ear pain, or a neck mass. Head and neck cancer represents any cancer that is above the voice box; in the oral cavity, which includes the tongue, gums and voice box. The cancer is initially diagnosed by seeing or feeling the cancer either with a mirror or a scope, Brant said. As terrible as treatment is, hes cancer free and alive. Its all worth it to catch it early, get treated and get well, Monica Payne said.

injectable therapy using a bulking agent for the urethra. In this minimally invasive treatment, a synthetic material is injected into the urethral wall to increase the resistance to urine leak by improving the sealing mechanism. Cystoscopy or telescopic examination of the bladder is needed to visualize the correct site for the injection, but this can be done under local anesthesia, making this a simple and safe procedure. The injection therapy may also be offered to patients who are wary of mesh slings or young patients who are not finished with family planning and may require pelvic floor surgery in the future. While injection therapies for stress incontinence have been used for more than a decade, the bulking agents used have changed over time, and the search has continued for agents with minimal morbidity and lasting efficacy. The recent introduction of Coaptite (calcium hydroxyapatite) as a urethral bulking agent has given a welcome boost to the armamentarium of minimally invasive therapies available for SUI. As stated earlier, the injection of Coaptite is performed under local anesthesia with cystoscopy. Sometimes, more than one sitting is required. Patients may experience some difficulty with emptying their bladder, but this is almost always temporary. The procedure takes only a few minutes to perform. Some patients may require a temporary urethral catheter. Coaptite injection for urethral bulking is an excellent minimally invasive alternative to surgery for patients who are unable to have general or spinal anesthesia or who have failed or do not wish to have the sling procedure for stress urinary incontinence. It is particularly attractive to the elderly, frail patient who desires to have the least invasive procedure with a good success rate.Udaya Kumar. M.D., FRCS Urol, Dip.

Richard Nugents recent visit to New Horizons Village, Lecantos intermediate care facility for the developmentally disabled, included a tour of its Learning Center led by one of the facilitys residents. It was wonderful to watch Tony show the congressman through our classrooms and facilities, said Scott Greiner, who heads New Horizons Village (NHV). No one could have done a better job of demonstrating to Rep. Nugent our mission of giving loving care and protection to the lives entrusted to us while guiding them to become creative, self-sufficient and independent. Accompanied by Justin Grabelle, his chief of staff, Nugent visited NHVs13-acre campus to see work being done by the NHV staff to enable the 48 adult residents to reach their full potential. The congressman was interested, engaged, asked important questions and was great with our residents, said Craig Greiner, NHVs administrator. Were appreciative of the time he spent to learn who we are and what we do at NHV. Nugent visited one of NHVs six residences, the 9,000-squarefoot Learning Center, and was shown the nurses office and recreation center. The people we serve at NHV are among the most vulnerable members of our society, Scott Greiner said. Were appreciative Rep. Nugent wanted to know more about us. He seemed particularly impressed with how weve blended a neighborhoodlike setting and atmosphere with the social, educational, psychological and medical services needed by our residents. The visit resulted from Nugents desire to see the facility personally after receiving an invitation from Greiner. Nugent represents Floridas 11th congressional district.

Yes, guys, no benefit seen for us, but we are still looking. But this research, along with many other discoveries, keeps pointing to the benefits of daily aspirin therapy if you can participate yes, again, talk to your doctor, many medications, especially blood thinners, will interact in a potentially deadly fashion with aspirin, so never start an aspirin regimen without discussing it with your primary care physician. In an effort to assess the correlation between aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) use and melanoma risk, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Cancer Institute in California used data for 59,806 postmenopausal Caucasian women aged 50 to 79 years from the Womens Health Initiative Observational Study. Yes, again guys, they just studied the women. During a median followup of 12 years, the researchers identified 548 confirmed melanomas. Compared with nonusers, aspirin users had a significantly reduced risk of melanoma. For each categorical increase in duration of aspirin use less than one year, one to four years, and five or more years the risk of melanoma was 11 percent lower for five or more years of use. There was no correlation for non-aspirin NSAID or acetaminophen use with melanoma, meaning that the use of Aleve (naproxen), Advil (ibuprofen) or Tylenol (acetaminophen) did not show any value in lowering the risk of melanoma. So to summarize, the current results indicate postmenopausal Caucasian women who used aspirin had a significantly lower risk of melanoma, and increased duration of use was associated with greater protection against melanoma, with those who took a daily aspirin for more than five years having the lowest risk of melanoma. These findings suggest aspirin may have a chemopreventive effect against the development of melanoma, and further clinical investigation is warranted. Hopefully, this further research will include men and other races of the population, as well. But in the meantime, this is just one more reason to sit down with your primary care physician, and discuss the pros and cons of taking a daily aspirin regimen.Dr. C.

Also when we find a problem, it may or may not be cancer and may require further testing including more Xrays or sometimes surgery. Newly identified genetic variants could revolutionize cancer screening by distinguishing people at highest risk for certain cancers from people at lowest risk. The largest study of its kind to date has identified 80 genetic variants that substantially raise the risk for breast and prostate cancer and, to a lesser extent, ovarian cancer. The massive project, led by researchers from Cambridge University and the Institute of Cancer Research, involved more than 1,000 scientists in 100 international research groups working together for four years. More than 200,000 individual samples (100,000 from cancer patients, 100,000 from control subjects) underwent DNA analysis; most of the samples were blood, but some were saliva. This was published in multiple journals. A clinical test developed on the basis of this research will likely be available in four to five years, predicted coauthor Ros Eeles, M.A., MBBS, Ph.D., professor of oncogenetics at the Institute of Cancer Research, at the press conference. The technology is relatively straightforward and not expensive (about per test, or $45) according to her. The test would identify people who have genetic variants that increase their risk for breast, prostate, and ovarian cancer. However, this information would have to be put into the wider context of an individuals health and lifestyle, so the best place for it would be within primary care, she explained. The biggest impact of this research is in prostate cancer. Of the genetic variants identified, 30 increase the risk for prostate cancer, and 16 of these are associated with aggressive disease. Currently screening PSA detects early prostate cancer but unfortunately, its value is controversial. This is because screening PSA detects many low-grade cancers, which would not have hurt the patient and the treatment can be worse than the disease. If we can detect genetically patients who are likely to have aggressive disease, it can really help. This genetic variant can identify the 1 in 100 man who is at risk of aggressive prostate cancer. In this select group, the risk of developing aggressive prostate cancer is 50 percent. We can treat them very aggressively and help those men. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Fourth annual Crystal River Boat Bash celebrates crafts, history, education The Citrus County American Irish Clubs presentation of Forever Irish, starring the return of Andy Cooney, his band and the Irish Sopranos, was a sensation. Held at the Curtis Peterson Auditorium in Lecanto, it was a sea of green with Cooney fans, one and all, dressed in Irish green, singing along, clapping in time, celebrating their Irish heritage on St. Patricks Day. Cooney, a Carnegie Hall performer whose concerts are sellouts in New York, thrilled the Citrus County audience with his vast range of Irish favorites. A musician, songwriter and dynamic vocalist, he has scores of Citrus County fans. We welcomed the addition of the Irish Sopranos Sarah Bass, Gillian Quinn and Annemarie Gilman this year. Comprising lyric, coloratura and dramatic soprano, the groups harmonic texture were a distinct hit embracing Broadway, pop and opera. It was music of their homeland at its Irish finest. Cooneys Irish Band was led by Brian Moran, guitarist, Matthew Fisher on flute and whistles, percussionist Jimmy Kelly and guitarist Colm Graham. The Darrah Carr Dance ensemble amazed us with their combination of traditional Irish step-dancing and contemporary modern dance. Irish music lends itself to their particular style with fast-paced Irish step-dance footwork with spatial patterns to dazzle us with their high-energy rhythm. Appearing worldwide since 1998, the ensemble of artists drew repeated spontaneous applause. The annual Irish concerts afford the Irish Club the opportunity to grant scholarships to local high school students. Opening with Galway Bay Girl and Ill Take You Home Again, Kathleen, Cooney had the audience mesmerized from start to finish, with his special Irish unbeatable charm. The step-dancing Darrah Carr Dance group appeared next in colorful Irish costumes. From New York, the group appears annually in festivals throughout New England, Ohio and West Virginias Goose Route Dance Festival. Cooneys personal sharing time endeared him to the audience as he sang That Daughter of Mine. Band members were introduced. Hailing from the New York areas of Brooklyn, Albany and New York City, they were given an opportunity to shine on guitar, sax, drums and keyboard. My personal favorite was Cooney and Brian Morans performance of You Raised Me Up with to more than I can be lines still lingering in memory. The Darrah Carr Dance group returned with a stellar performance of The Stolen Kiss from The Lord of the Dance. The Irish Sopranos, making their American debut this tour, thrilled us with Somewhere Over The Rainbow and a Galway medley, Alive Oh, Irish Freedom and the enchanting Gloria Oh! The Lady of Nor, written after Pope Paul visited Ireland, and Ireland, Ireland, Come Together, Stand Tall garnered a standing ovation from the audience. Flute artistry dominated the Dancing Till the Break of Dawn piece and Dancing All Night Long featured the step-dancing group with Cooney playfully joining them as the audience clapped to the beat of their rhythm. After intermission, we enjoyed the set highlighting each instrument including the dancers and a traditional Irish jig. It was fun, fun, fun as they performed Finiculi, Finicula and an Irish round with many, many verses. Cooney was adept at Irish stories about Murphy and A Lady in Red, The Arch Bishop of Galway, and the one about sister Mary Margaret in the shower when a blind man rang the door bell was particularly hilarious when we learned that he was a blinds salesman. We were invited to join in on the chorus as Cooney serenaded us with He won the Heart of a Lady, encouraging us to sway in our seats. The poignant personal Cooney story, Grandfathers Immigrant Time, his own American story of his ancestors, reminded many of their ancestors humble beginnings. Donegal, a classic guitar piece, was performed as it appears on their Mosaic Heart album. Having sung with James Rodriguez and Michael Alante, first responders with the military protection team, Cooney, accompanied by the keyboard and drums, performed the hauntingly beautiful I Wont Turn My Back on You in honor of the Towers to Towers Foundation and the annual Five K Run to benefit returning soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan. Into the audience Cooney came as we enthusiastically clapped along and the group performed McNamaras Band, When Irish Eyes Are Smiling. Proclaiming, Now it feels like St. Patricks Day, Cooney closed out yet another Irish concert with The Holy City, written by the composer of Danny Boy, and Danny Boy, a fathers lament to his son as they parted, and we, in turn, said farewell to Andy Cooney, Irish Americas favorite son, Irish showman extraordinaire. The entire cast assembled on stage and bid us farewell with America, I Hear You, meriting resounding applause and a welldeserved standing ovation.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

TUESDAY, APRIL23, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Richard Cobden, a 19th-century English politician, said, A newspaper should be the maximum of information and the minimum of comment. If you get the maximum of information at the bridge table and use it wisely, you will make the minimum of errors. First, though, lets look at the auction. What should South bid on the second round? He should rebid two hearts, guaranteeing at least a six-card suit and 12-14 points, a minimum opening. With only five hearts, South would show a second suit, bid no-trump, or raise spades (perhaps with only three). Then North, knowing about an eight-card fit, raises to four hearts. (Note that four spades by North fails if East leads a low diamond and West shifts to the club jack.) After West leads the club jack, what should South do? First, he should count losers by looking at his 13 cards and taking dummys winners into account. He has four: one spade, two diamonds and one club. Second, he counts winners. Here, he enjoys 10: two spades, six hearts, one diamond and one club. So, he can get home as long as he does not lose four tricks. To eliminate that spade loser, declarer must establish his diamond winner. Suppose South tries dummys club queen, captures Easts king with his ace, draws trumps, and leads a diamond. The defenders can win, cash a club, and shift to spades, but South wins in his hand and plays another diamond. With the spade ace still in the dummy, he has 10 winners.

(N)10th Inn.WGN News at NineFunny Home Videos Dear Annie: Did you know that an estimated 16 million youth participate in volunteer activities in the U.S. every year, and that by volunteering, these young people will perform better in school? These amazing kids do everything from collecting stuffed animals for children who are victims of tragedy to creating sustainable gardens in urban communities. All of these remarkable youth have a common goal: to raise awareness and solve the problems facing the world today. To celebrate their ingenuity, idealism and passion, please remind your readers that the 25th Global Youth Service Day (GYSD) will take place April 26 to 28, 2013. Last year, young people around the world came together and participated in nearly 4,500 projects. Additionally, thousands of community partners in more than 106 countries brought together millions of young people to strengthen their communities through the power of youth service. For more information, your readers can visit www.GYSD.org. Sincerely Steven A. Culbertson President and CEO Youth Service America Dear Steven Culbertson: Thanks so much for letting us once again mention Global Youth Service Day. Young people all over the world do such fantastic and helpful volunteer work, not only on this day, but every day of the year. Global Youth Service Day provides more opportunities for everyone to get involved. We hope all of our readers, young and old, teachers and students, will check out your website. Dear Annie: My husband is 75 and seems fit and able. The problem is, he likes to fix the doors to our pool cage in the open position. The first time he did it, I went ballistic, pointing out the liability: There are children in this neighborhood who could wander in and easily drown in our pool. I said I would leave if he did it again. Yesterday, he did it again. So, Im thinking he wants me to leave. What recourse do I have when my husband seems mentally fit but begins to exhibit such terrible behaviors? Im fairly sure he would pass a mental competency test, if I could get him to take one. Is this abuse? Should I find a lawyer? How do I do that? Sarasota, Fla. Dear Sarasota: This doesnt sound like abuse, but we agree that your husband may not be as mentally competent as he outwardly appears. Does your local police department or neighborhood association issue fines for leaving pool gates open? If so, report your husband and ask them to give him a citation. You also could purchase a new lock to which only you have the key. Then talk to your husband and ask whats going on. If he wants you to leave, you can find a lawyer through your state or county bar association. But also, please suggest he get a complete checkup. Dear Annie: Disgusted was annoyed with charities that send little gifts to guilt him into sending money. Here are my suggestions: Always check a charitys privacy policy before you donate. Some of the best charities sell their mailing lists. Do NOT give your name and address if you dont know their privacy policy. If you want to donate, send a money order. They still get the donation, you still get a tax receipt, and you maintain your privacy. Check with Charity Navigator (charitynavigator.org) to find out how much of a charitys money goes toward its purpose as compared to administrative costs. If the charity includes a stamped envelope, fold up every piece of paper they sent, cram it in there and put the following message near your name: Delete this address from your mailing list. Do not sell, trade, share or otherwise distribute this address with any other mailing list. We spent a lot of time and effort cleaning up my motherin-laws mail. For every worthwhile charity she donated to, there were about a dozen scummy ones. Good charities are out there, but be cautious.
