M IKE W RIGHT Staff writerCitrus County Hospital Board members are prepared to pay a Pennsylvania company $60,000 or more to communicate the boards efforts in selling, leasing or merging Citrus Memorial hospital. While the contract isnt finalized, CCHB members agreed last week they need outside public relations help in anticipation of opponents, such as those affiliated with the hospital, who would try to block the CCHBs progress. Joshua Nemzoff, president of Nemzoff & Co. of New Hope, Pa., is in line to earn a $20,000 monthly retainer as a transition manager to negotiate the hospitals sale, merger or lease with another company. CCHB members chose Nemzoff at a special meeting in mid April. The proposed contract is for 12 months with a potential total payout of $775,000 to Nemzoff if he closes a sale, lease or merger P AT F AHERTY Staff writerOn a perfect beach day Steve Schwartz picks up trash and keeps an eye out for customers. Schwartz and his food trailer have been a familiar sight at Fort Island Gulf Beach for the past few years. During that time he has fine-tuned the menu, added seashore sundries and been the go-to-guy for tourist directions, stranded motorists, blow-up beach toys and questions about everything from jumping fish to the nuclear plant. But if youre visiting the county beach this week, you may want to pack a lunch. His C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerTwo long-envisioned Citrus County transportation projects Suncoast Parkway 2 and Port Citrus are featured in a state study to connect Tampa Bay to Northeast Florida in the future. At Fridays board meeting in Tampa of TBARTA Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) presented a webinar on Floridas Future Corridors Initiative, looking ahead to plan roads to connect two of the states largest regions. Although the presentation was fastpaced, the PowerPoint slides were good, reported Theodora Rusnak, Citrus County representative to TBARTAs Citizens Advisory Committee. The slides and narrative are promised to be posted on the website www.FLFutureCorridors.org. This is important because it opens the public comment period on the latest corridors study, and yes, Citrus County appears a number of times in the planned corridors and study regions. According to the public comment draft of the study, population and economic growth State study features county road projects County ends beach concession MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Steve Schwartz, owner of the Cookin Good food trailer at Fort Island Gulf Beach, sets up his operation last week. Schwartz has had the contract as the food vendor at the beach for the past three years. Debbie Ressler CCHB chairwoman. Kings Bay gets support The News Service of Florida TALLAHASSEE Ten million dollars has been floated toward the states threatened freshwater springs with legislators having finished work on a compromise budget bill now expected to get a vote this week. A day after they were left out of a $58 million package for water projects around the state, the Senate directed trust fund money for the springs. The money is far short of the $122 million plan that water districts have drafted to restore a number of endangered springs, which face threats from groundwater pumping and pollution. But the total tops the $6.5 million that Gov. Rick Scott proposed. As part of the budget talks, the House and Senate each outlined $29 million worth of projects on Saturday. Despite the House having initiated discussion for the springs and a number of senators backing the proposal, the springs were not included in initial lists of water projects that would be paid for. But at the urging of Senate President Don Gaetz, RNiceville, money for the springs was drawn from the Florida Forever Trust Fund as supplemental funding lists were released Sunday night. President Gaetz wanted to make a strong commitment for protecting and enhancing our springs, particular as it relates to the Silver Springs area, said Sen.

contract with the county is up. Schwartz and his wife Betsy run Cookin Good, the mobile food concession and have held the contract to serve the small remote beach for the past three years. It was a daily job April through September, and as weather permitted October through March. Like other small local businesses, they dealt with the lingering recession and situations beyond their control. There were swimming bans when the bacteria count got too high, the bathrooms were burned and rebuilt and there was a beach restoration project. Instead of Cookin Good, I couldve named it The International Cart Schwartz said, describing his menu. In addition to the county-required hot dogs, chips and brand-named sodas, he offered arepas, knishes, Italian ices, chicken nuggets, burgers, nachos and fries. Customers could also enjoy grilled cheese or grilled peanut butter and jelly or various breakfast options with coffee. As for hot dogs, the most popular item that day, there was a choice, the popular New Yorkbased brand name and what he calls the Florida dog. The latter is a lower priced nod to the weak economy. Its something a family with children can afford to enjoy, he said. The food reflects his New York area roots, as does his accent. I offer quality food at reasonable rate, he said. On the back of trailer are racks of brochures promoting local businesses and attractions, places I personally recommend, he said. Out front is beach stuff; pails and shovels, sun block, floats and umbrella stands. The food stand also served as a meeting spot, informal complaint window and the lost and found. Schwartz took pride and a sense of ownership in the unstaffed park; picking up trash was a regular routine as was notifying county maintenance when something needed to be fixed. He also had occasions to notify the sheriffs office. The Cookin Good contract ran out in April, with an option to renew for another three years. However, in March, the Board of County Commissioners approved a non-renewal recommended by staff. Schwartz had filed for renewal back in September with two modifications. They had requested a prorated amount for September, a low tourist month, and additional parking. Reasons for non-renewal cited by the county included those requests, citizen complaints about Cookin Good policing the public beach area and concerns DRC Racing Sports (triathlons) had lost sponsors due to actions by Cookin Good personnel. Schwartz agreed there have been some issues, but declined to discuss the process, only saying that if he gets the chance, hell bid on the job again. Were planning to bid again, said Betsy Schwartz, who often helps on busy days. It was a good weekend, but bittersweet, She said a lot of regular customers expressed disappointment when they heard the news. County spokesperson Lindsay Ubinas confirmed the policies and procedures for concession services are being revised and subject to approval by the board, possibly at the last meeting in May.A2 T UESDAY, A PRIL 30, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE CALL CONVENIENT LOCATION BELOW AudibelNorthCentralFlorida.com Homosassa 5699 S.

Freight, business, visitor, commuting and personal trips in the study area heavily depend on the highway system, the study states. Tampa and Jacksonville are the two largest urban centers in Florida without a direct limited-access highway connection today. Travel between the two regions primarily occurs via Interstates 75 and 10, Interstate 75 and U.S. 301 or Interstates 4 and 95. Many of the rural counties are not well connected to the Interstate highways or other limited-access highways today. Making the case for connectivity to claim global markets, the study said that two of the states major deepwater seaports at Tampa and Jacksonville bookend the study area. Tampa is the top seaport in the state by tonnage and Jacksonville is a leader for containers and automobiles. Two other ports in the study area Manatee and Fernandina are reported to be expanding facilities to prepare for growing trade flows, while Port Citrus is undergoing a feasibility study. Citrus County also is mentioned among other counties north of Tampa that will emerge as future centers of population and employment. Suncoast Parkway 2 in Citrus County is seen as one of the traffic relievers for Interstate 75. In fact, the road-building project beyond it figures strongly in the future of regional roadways: An extension of the Suncoast Parkway beyond Citrus County on an existing or new alignment, connecting to I-75 near Ocala, Gainesville or Lake City (would) provide a more direct limited access route between Tampa Bay and the central to northern portion of the study area, as well as to Georgia. Many other issues that will affect the countys future road plans will go before the advisory groups for the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) on Wednesday. These range from Citrus County Transits improved services to merging with Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization. Lon Frye, operations supervisor of Citrus County Transportation, will present an update of county transit operations. It is supported and guided by FDOT and TBARTA, and is working toward developing an effective transportation network in the county with connections to a regional network in the future. In 2012, 80,047 people rode county buses. At their meetings, both advisory groups will discuss the countys transportation priorities and the merger with Hernando County. Members will hear reports about TBARTAs recent Telephone Town Hall meetings. Citrus County residents took part on April 8 with hosts Citrus County Commissioner Rebecca Bays and gubernatorial appointee Jim Kimborough. The event drew interest from 7,977 residents of Citrus and Hernando counties. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com.

New Port Richey Man charged with killing 4 puppies A Tampa Bay area man has been charged with beating four pit bull puppies to death with a shovel. The Pasco County Sheriffs Office reported 21-yearold David Lee Thompson went to a New Port Richey mobile home Friday to help his friend move. The friend and his father began discussing what to do with the puppies since the son couldnt afford to keep them. An arrest report said the father suggested killing them. The son told deputies he didnt have the guts, so Thompson reportedly killed the puppies. From staff and wire reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 TUESDAY, APRIL 30, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerA bill in the Florida Senate to help mobile home park residents stabilize lot rents to sell their homes appears to be stalled in committee level and set to fail passage before the end of the legislative session on Friday. Right now, it appears that were going to have to make another attempt next fall, said Edward Green, president of the Citrus County Citizens Coalition, a manufactured homes residents association. Green has promoted the idea for more than two years to get protection for people whose homes are in mobile home parks, where they own the manufactured home they live in, but rent the lot beneath it. These residents have said they found when they want to sell their home, the prospective buyer withdraws the offer because the park owner will raise the rent for the next tenant. Unable to sell, the resident leaves behind a home that then belongs to the park owner. When Dean offered to sponsor the bill last October at a town hall meeting in Walden Woods organized by Green, state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness, was present. Green said Smith committed to getting a House draft written. But he said that all his bill slots were taken up, Green said. He couldnt sponsor it. The bill had no companion in the House. On Monday, Green had a slim hope for his bill. Sen. Deans office and all of his aides told me from the get-go it is possible and it is still possible, in the 11th hour, to have the bill go through, Green said. He said if they can get it through the Senate, they can pigtail it onto something in the House. So there is still an outside chance, but were not real optimistic right now. Green pointed out that some bills, such as the one to ban texting while driving, took as many as four years to become law. When the session ends, he will seek Deans support to sponsor the bill again next year. In addition, Green said he would approach state Rep. Mike Fasano, RNew Port Richey, to file the companion bill. This isnt a district problem, Green said. It isnt just a county problem. This is a statewide problem. When senior citizens lose everything theyve got because they are unable to sell their home they have to walk away and give it to the park its a statewide problem.

Mobile-home park bill likely to fail Residents looking ahead to next year Editors note: In an economic climate where jobs are at a premium, the Chronicle is featuring an occasional series, Citrus County Works, profiling local Citrus County people and the jobs they perform. Today: Dennis Miller, station manager at WYKE. N ANCY K ENNEDY Staff writerLECANTOD ennis Millers career has consisted of simply being Dennis Miller. His is the only job of its kind in Citrus County and, for the most part, always has been. On his income tax form under occupation he puts TV station manager, but thats only because the IRS doesnt recognize being Dennis Miller as a job. Currently, Miller manages WYKE TV and WYKE 104.3 FM, the all-sports talk radio station, both owned by the Key Training Center. He hosts the daily liverecorded Citrus Today TV show and is one-third of the noon hour sports talk show on the radio with Stan Solovich and Brett Newtson. He tinkers with engineering, sells advertising, calls high school football and basketball games for the radio, does voiceover for local commercials that run on the TV station and emcees hundreds of community events, from beauty pageants and fashion shows to Key Training Center telethons. Its a job he fell into as a student at Citrus High School back in the early 1970s and has evolved into over the past 40some years. It helps to have a clear, pleasing-sounding voice, a curiosity about people and an ability to put people at ease and think fast on his feet. I got into radio at 16, as soon as I got my drivers license, Miller said. After school Id work for WYSE, an AM station that used to be in Inverness. Back then it was the only station in Citrus County and was only on from sunup to sundown. In the mornings, he and some other students did a homeroom report on closedcircuit TV. He also wrote freelance newspaper stories for the St. Petersburg Times. Next, he worked a few years at the radio station WTRS and then was hired at the Chronicle when it was in Inverness. I was hired for the advertising department and also as production manager, but at that time new hires got to experience working every department at the paper, he said. After four years I went to Citrus 95, and then Country Fox as manager. His next job was executive director of the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce, and somewhere during that time he was at the Dunnellon Chamber of Commerce. Plus, he has volunteered since high school for the Key Training Center. About seven years ago, Key Center executive director Chet Cole asked Miller if he would manage WYKE. Two years ago, WYKE acquired the Yahoo Sports radio station. I think my favorite part of my job is interviewing people, Miller said. We have the most interesting people in the world right here in Citrus County. Ive enjoyed everything Ive done, newspapers, radio, chamber of commerce, and everything has helped me along the way, he said. Ive gotten to know the county and the people, how things work, who the players are. I enjoy working with my hands, but I think my skill is communications, whether its sales or being on the air. Being on the air is the most fun. I guess you could say my job is being a communicator Ive never wanted to do anything else.

A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerIn a span of four hours Saturday, the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) collected nearly half a ton of prescription drugs at a drug take-back event. Authorities took back 41 trash bags full, weighing 990 pounds, from two locations in the county one on the east side and another on the west side according to Detective John Bergen of the CCSOs drug mitigation unit. It was an unbelievable turnout, Bergen said. We had a steady stream of people from to 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The DEA agent told me he had to make two trips to collect everything, Bergen added. According to CCSO, Saturdays event was the sixth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by people ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bergen said the collected drugs are taken by the DEA for disposal. The take-back was free and anonymous, no questions asked. It is estimated in the five previous take-back events the DEA and its partners took in more than 2 million pounds more than a thousand tons of pills. The success of this event is fantastic because you know studies have shown that most drug abusers found the drugs in somebodys medicine cabinet, Bergen said. Also, we (law enforcement officials) have found that a lot of break-ins are linked to people trying to find these prescription pills. So, to get rid of it makes a lot of sense, he said. Bergen said in light of this years successful takeback, more events may be planned and he noted the public will be informed in advance of such events. Four days after the first event, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an ultimate user of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The law also allows the Attorney General to authorize long-term care facilities to dispose of their residents controlled substances in certain instances. The DEA is drafting regulations to implement the law. According to officials, until new regulations are in place, the CCSO, other local law enforcement agencies and the DEA will continue to have prescription drug take-back events.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

R-Stuart, who as Senate Appropriations Committee chairman headed the budget talks for the Senate. The budget also sets aside another $3 million from the Water Management Lands Trust Fund for the Suwannee River Water Management District for springs restoration and protection projects. Money for the springs was among a long list of last minute changes in which projects that had been omitted from the spending plan suddenly were in the funded column, while a number of other projects got a further bump in dollars. IMG Academy in Bradenton, a studentathlete training center, landed $2.3 million Sunday after having been cut in favor of the money going to the SarasotaBradenton World Aquatic Center in the economic development and transportation portion of the budget. The rowing center, meanwhile, saw its funding bumped from $2.5 million to $5 million with the final round of allocations. The center had requested $5 million to help land the 2017 World Rowing Championship. The water project lists did include money for the emergency restoration of Apalachicola Bay, but $3 million has been set aside in the budget for the Panhandle waterway from the Water Management Lands Trust Fund. The individual water projects also do not include the $70 million that has been directed in the budget for Everglades restoration. One of the water projects negotiators for the House and Senate agreed to support is the Crystal River Kings Bay cleanup $100,000. SPRINGS Continued from Page A1 between Citrus Memorial Health System and another company, CCHB trustee Bob Priselac said. During his interview, Nemzoff urged trustees to hire a public relations firm to combat likely opposition from the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation. The reason you need a p.r. firm is as follows: Youre about to get into a fight; frankly, youre already in the fight. Youre into a fight on multiple counts, Nemzoff told trustees, according to a transcript of the April 15 meeting. You may think its bad, its going to get worse. He added: You have a CEO that doesnt want to do this deal; you have a board thats backing that CEO. You have a discrepancy as to whether you have the authority over this hospital. The hospital, as they organize, is going to organize the employees, the doctors in trying to go against you. At a meeting nine days later, trustees decided that instead of hiring a public relations firm, they would add $10,000 a month to Nemzoffs contract for media relations. After six months, they will decide whether to continue the arrangement or change it. Priselac, in an interview Monday, said trustees need a professional to communicate to the public about steps in the potential sale or lease of the hospital. If we see a lot of misinformation going out there and it appears to be a play to misrepresent the truth, we need to get the correct information out, he said. We need experts to know how to properly communicate. CCHB chairwoman Debbie Ressler said Nemzoff will hire out a public relations person who will answer to him. We are hiring Josh and the p.r. person will report to Josh and not to us, she said. The fee will kick in whenever we initiate the p.r. campaign. I dont know the entire scope of what that persons going to do. Trustees are hoping members of the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation join them in seeking a company to buy, lease or affiliate with the hospital. Hospital chief executive officer Ryan Beaty said he doesnt agree with Nemzoffs assertion that that the two boards are headed for a fight over the hospitals future. I have been in favor of finding the right relationship for this hospital for years, he said. I believe we need to look at sale, carefully. We need to look at lease. We need to look at other affiliations and it needs to be done in an organized fashion. Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

The Tasker Funeral Home confirms that Appel, who was diagnosed with esophageal cancer, died April 19 in hospice care.

Jin Luxian, 96 SHANGHAI BISHOP BEIJING Shanghai Bishop Aloysius Jin Luxian, who revived the Catholic church in Chinas financial hub after years of Maoist persecution, has died. He was 96. Jins death on Saturday leaves one of Chinas largest and wealthiest dioceses in a deeply unsettled state, underscoring continuing tensions generated by the ruling Communist Partys insistence on tightly controlling all organized religions. Jins first anointed successor as acting bishop, Joseph Xing Wenzhi, resigned last year for reasons still unclear, and his replacement, Thaddeus Ma Daqin, was placed under house arrest at Shanghais Sheshan Seminary after enraging party officials by renouncing his membership in the partycontrolled Catholic Patriotic Association. Born into a Catholic family in Shanghai in June 1916, Jin was ordained as a Jesuit priest in 1938 and spent several years studying in France, Germany, and other European nations. Returning to his native Shanghai in 1951, Jin was imprisoned for nearly two decades under Communist Chinas founder, Mao Zedong, who ordered Chinese Catholics to cut their ties with the Vatican and jailed hundreds of priests and nuns as counter-revolutionaries. Jin was paroled in 1972 and put to work as a translator based on his knowledge of several European languages. Following Maos death in 1976, he was formally released and named Shanghai bishop in 1988 by the Patriotic Association.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Urged to fix a mockery to justice, the Florida Senate passed legislation Monday to accelerate the states capital punishment process that was criticized for allowing some condemned inmates to languish for decades on death row. The Senate passed the bill 28-10, sending the measure to Gov. Rick Scott for his consideration. The House passed the Timely Justice Act of 2013 (HB 7083) by an 84-34 vote last week. The bill creates tighter timeframes for appeals, post-conviction motions and imposes reporting requirements on case progress. It also re-establishes a separate agency for north Florida to provide appellate-level legal representation to inmates sentenced to death, and requires them to pursue all possible remedies in state court. Supporters of the measure said Monday that numerous people have sat on Floridas death row for longer than 30 years. When someone sits on death row for 10, 20, 30 years, it really makes a mockery of our justice system, said Republican Sen. Rob Bradley. Its not fair to the victims families not only to be traumatized by the loss of a loved one, but then have to sit and suffer while justice is not realized year after year after year. Florida has 405 inmates on its death row, more than any other state except California. It takes an average of 13 years for an inmate to move from sentencing to execution. The bills critics worried that speeding up the process could condemn some innocent people to the ultimate punishment. Once the execution is over, theres no going back, said Demoocratic Sen. Maria Sachs. Opponents noted DNA evidence might be introduced that proves a condemned prisoners innocence.

Authorities are examining the state's highway safety building after the letter was discovered, forcing some 1,500 employees to evacuate. The letter was found Monday inside the state's highway safety building four miles east of the Florida Capitol. A Tallahassee Fire Department official said writing on an envelope found in the records office indicated anthrax was inside. But nothing was inside the envelope, which was addressed to the agency's executive director. Employees were told to return later Monday. State agency evacuated Senate OKs bill speeding up capital punishment Medicaid expansion reaches stalemate Associated PressTALLAHASSEE With just four days left in the Legislative session and neither the House nor Senate willing to concede, it seems the Medicaid expansion alternative is at a stalemate and may have to wait until next year, leaving rough 1.1 million eligible Floridians without health insurance. The Senate had been juggling two proposals for the past few weeks in hopes of reaching an agreement with the House, but on Monday senators squashed the proposal that mirrored the Houses plan with little fanfare and no debate. House Republicans have resisted accepting any money tied to President Obamas Affordable Care Act, saying it would only support the federal governments irresponsible spending pattern and voicing concerns that the federal government would not make good on a promise to pay 100 percent of the health care costs for the first three years and 90 percent after that. Instead, the House spent more than six hours last week debating and ultimately passing a bill that would use $237 million in state funds to provide health coverage for about 115,000 residents. The health plans would require a $25 monthly premium and likely have high deductibles, which Democrats said many families would not be able to afford. House Democrats criticized the bill as wholly inadequate, covering one-tenth as many people as the Senate bill.

US consumers keep spending despite higher taxes WASHINGTON This year got off to a sour start for U.S. workers: Their pay, already gasping to keep pace with inflation, suddenly shrank with a Social Security tax increase. That raised the worrisome question, would consumers stop spending and further slow the economy? Apparently, not yet. On Friday the government said consumers spent 3.2 percent more on an annual basis in the January-March quarter than in the previous quarter the biggest jump in two years. And in a report Monday, the government said consumers increased their spending in each month, by 0.2 percent in March, 0.7 percent in February and 0.3 percent in January.Google invades Siris turf with iPhone, iPad app SAN FRANCISCO Siri may be feeling a little job insecurity. The sometimes droll assistant that answers questions and helps people manage their lives on Apples iPhone and iPad is facing competition from an up-andcoming rival made by Google. The duel began Monday with the release of a free iPhone and iPad app that features Google Now, a technology that performs many of the same functions as Siri. Its the first time Google Now has been available on smartphones and tablet computers that arent running on the latest version of Googles Android software. The technology, which debuted nine months ago, is being included in an upgrade to Googles search application for iOS, the Apple Inc. software that powers the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Its up to a user to decide to activate Google Now within the redesigned Google Search app, which is available through Apples app store.Pending US home sales reach 3-year high in MarchWASHINGTON The number of Americans who signed contracts to buy homes rose in March to the highest level in three years, pointing to higher sales this spring. The National Association of Realtors said Monday that its seasonally adjusted index for pending home sales rose 1.5 percent to 105.7. Thats the highest since April 2010, when a homebuyers tax credit boosted sales. Its also above Februarys reading of 104.1. There is generally a one-to-two-month lag between a signed contract and a completed sale. Contract signings rose in the South, West and Midwest, and were unchanged in the Northeast. Chrysler profit falls 65 percent on lower shipmentsDETROIT Chryslers first-quarter profit tumbled 65 percent as shipments of cars and trucks fell while it prepared factories to launch several key new vehicles. The Auburn Hills, Mich., company said Monday it earned $166 million in the JanuaryMarch quarter, compared with $473 million a year ago. Revenue fell 6 percent to $15.4 billion. Chrysler, which is majority-owned by Italys Fiat SpA, said worldwide vehicle shipments fell 6 percent during the quarter to 574,000. Express Scripts profit up 39 percentST. LOUIS Express Scripts says its firstquarter earnings jumped 39 percent compared to last year, when charges tied to its acquisition of competitor Medco Health Solutions hurt the largest U.S. pharmacy benefit managers performance. The acquisition more than doubled Express Scripts revenue in the quarter, more than offsetting higher operating costs for the combined company. Express Scripts made $373 million, or 45 cents per share, in the quarter, up from $267.8 million, or 55 cents per share, a year earlier. Excluding one-time charges, profit was 99 cents per share. JC Penney to get $1.75 billion in financing PLANO, Texas J.C. Penney on Monday confirmed that Goldman Sachs will provide it with $1.75 billion in financing. The five-year senior secured term loan can be used to fund the companys operations as well as pay off some of its debt. It will be secured by real estate, as well as an interest the companys other assets and some of its subsidiaries.

The stock market has recovered all the ground it lost over the previous two weeks, when worries over slower economic growth, falling commodity prices and disappointing quarterly earnings battered financial markets. The S&P 500 index rose 11.37 points to close at 1,593.61. The 0.7 percent increase nudged the index above its previous closing high of 1,593.36, reached on April 11. The market has had a terrific run, said Philip Orlando, chief equity strategist at Federated Investors, noting that the S&P 500 is up 12 percent since the start of 2013. At the beginning of the year, I thought we were going to 1,660 (for the whole year). Were only about 5 percent from that. A pair of better economic reports gave investors some encouragement. Wages and spending rose in the U.S. last month, and pending home sales hit their highest level in three years. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 106.20 points to 14,818.75, up 0.7 percent. Microsoft and IBM were among the Dows best performers, rising more than 2 percent each. IBM, which rose $4.84 to $199.15, accounted for a third of the Dows increase. The index is just 46 points below its own record high of 14,865 reached on April 11. Techs popularity Monday was a change from earlier this month, when it lagged the rest of the market. Concerns about weak business spending and slower overseas sales have cast a shadow over big tech firms, said Marty Leclerc, the managing partner of Barrack Yard Advisors, an investment firm in Bryn Mawr, Pa. Revenue misses from IBM and other big tech companies have highlighted the industrys vulnerability to the world economy. But Leclerc thinks tech companies with steady revenue and plenty of cash look appealing over the long term. Information technology stocks rose the most of the 10 industry groups in the S&P 500 on Monday, up 1.6 percent. Its the only group that remains lower over the past year, down 2 percent, versus the S&P 500s gain of 14 percent. Federateds Orlando thinks tech stocks could continue to rally as investors shift money from companies that pay big dividends and have rallied recently utilities, healthcare and consumer staples. Theyve been buying these companies, but four months into this year theyve gotten expensive, Orlando said. The Nasdaq composite rose 27.76 points to 3,307.02, an increase of 0.9 percent. Apple, the biggest stock in the index, surged 3 percent, or $12.92, to $430.12. The Nasdaq remains far below its record closing high of 5,048.62, hit March 10, 2000, before the dotcom bubble popped.

O PINION Page A10 TUESDAY, APRIL 30, 2013 The Golden Rule The religious and social differences that divide America are not, as Jimmy Carter once thought, a sign of malaise, but of a healthy and vigorous free society. In debate, as in life, patience often wins when all else fails. At a time when even recent college graduates cannot find work, skilled tradesmen and tradeswomen who have been laid off are advised to go back to school. The fine gentleman who started the ball rolling on that one should go back to school himself. Moral issues often take top stage, especially abortion and gay rights. Whether rightly or wrongly, one side or the other will eventually prevail. That being said, I do not think this is a good time to be sweeping important issues under the rug. It is better for the country if we openly and freely discuss our mutual problems before we are overwhelmed by them. This country has no lack of smart people whose talents are sorely needed by our country. But they are humble folk who dont puff themselves up and so they dont get elected to public office. The kind we do elect are bumblers without their teleprompter. When John McCain was running for president, he assured everyone he knew how to win wars. That has to be the dumbest, most idiotic and utterly worthless pronouncement anyone could ever make. History is filled with the dead bodies of thousands of imbeciles who thought the same thing of themselves. Just in my lifetime we have had Hitler and Stalin, Lyndon Johnson, George Bush, Dick Cheney and his sidekick, the stumbling, bungling, Donald Rumsfeld. I am not naive. I recognize bad things happen every day in the world. It may be a long, long time before the economy fully recovers. There is much hardship even here in Citrus County. Meanwhile, we should not depend on the government to do everything for us. We are all in this together, and we can all make things a little better today if we follow the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you want them to do unto you. Franklin Aretz Beverly Hills How far is too far? I doubt anyone likes other people spending their money. You bring your car to a shop for a tune up and you get a new set of tires as well and $400 added to your bill. Thats actually how government works and citizens try to elect those they trust to spend their money wisely. Citrus County has gone one step further. The leaders have decided its OK to remove your most important resource and give it away whether you like it or not. That would be our water. Your use is restricted but they are free to take as much as they want and sell it or give it away. How can that possibly be OK with anyone? Fred Schirmer Inverness D OUGLAS C OHNANDE LEANOR C LIFT WASHINGTONI ts always risky to try to understand the mindset of a politician, but one truism that generally bears out in public life, is that once an elected official decides not to run again, he or she is freed of political constraints and can vote in the national interest. That proposition is sorely tested in the aftermath of Montana Democrat Max Baucus announcement this is his last term in the Senate, and he will not run for reelection in 2014 when his current six-year term ends. At 71, he said he wants to see what more there is to life beyond serving in Congress. He was first elected to the House in 1974, and then to the Senate in 1978, so he will have put in 40 years of public service, the last 20 either as chair or ranking member on the powerful Senate Finance Committee. His retirement is understandable after all those years, but the timing is puzzling. Baucus was one of four Democrats who voted against the background checks bill on guns, citing the sign on his desk that says Montana First, saying he was voting the interests of his constituents. Except even in Montana, a frontier state where gun rights are paramount, polls show that 79 percent of Montanans support background checks. When Baucus voted against the wishes of a majority of his constituents, the assumption was that he was acting in accordance with his reelection prospects. The National Rifle Association and its allies bring more passion to the issue of gun rights than folks who advocate for gun safety, so Baucus did what he had to, said all the sages in Washington. Then just days later, Baucus said he wouldnt be running again, so why couldnt he step up and support background checks? One theory is he miscalculated, that the backlash to his vote was so swift and sure he realized he would face a primary challenge from a gun safety proponent, and he didnt want to go through that. Indeed, popular former Gov. Brian Schweitzer lost no time declaring his interest in the Senate seat once Baucus had taken himself out of the race, and its possible that Baucus would have had a tough primary fight on his hands. Others give Baucus a pass, saying hes a true believer when it comes to guns, but history doesnt bear that out. Baucus voted for the assault weapons ban in 1994, a far more aggressive bill than the modest one he just opposed. After that vote, Baucus won with a narrower margin than he was accustomed to, and that could have scared him off this time. Still, he must have been mulling his decision to retire for some time, and if he knew that was the direction he was heading, why couldnt he have supported a bill that in all likelihood he is for? It was his one chance to become a statesman or maybe not. Based on what Baucus has said in subsequent interviews, he sees another route to becoming a statesman, and it is through the tax code. Over the next year, he will work to craft a tax overhaul that he believes will be his legacy, and the fact that he will never be a candidate again might boost his credibility in getting that done. As for guns, we may never know whether his misfire on background checks factored into his decision to step aside, but voting with the NRA is no longer a free vote. Groups on the other side are getting in the game, and vulnerable Democrats as well as Republicans will feel their ire. Harry Truman is credited with saying, If you cant stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Maybe the heat was turned up just enough for Baucus to get out of the kitchen.

Scott signed sweeping education reform that brings a little more common sense to the classroom for Florida high school students. The legislation takes a step back from some of the rigid standards adopted by the Legislature during the last decade. Those rigid standards if enforced would have made it more difficult for students at all levels to earn a high school diploma and driven up the states dropout rate. The new rules also remove the stipulation that passing the final exam in certain courses is mandated for graduation. The new legislation recognizes students in Florida have different expectations from the public school system. Three types of high school diplomas were created for students, thus recognizing young people go in different directions after graduation. The standard diploma requires a student take 24 credit hours and pass standardized exams in language arts and algebra. A diploma with a scholar designation would require the standard achievements plus one college level course, two credits in a foreign language and passing year-end exams in algebra II, biology and history. This would be the direction college-bound students would follow. A diploma with a merit designation would require the standard achievements plus earning industry certification in one or more technical fields. The new legislation recognizes that we cant have a one-size-fits-all education system. Not every student in Florida needs or wants to go to college. For those who want to attend the university, the academic requirements should be stiff on the traditional math, science and language skills. But many Florida students are more interested in pursuing a technical education directed toward the job market. Under the new rules, the students will have the time to earn certification in a given field and still have the honor of earning a high school diploma. Gov. Scott showed he is growing with the job by getting input from students, parents and educators before taking a stand against the reforms. Once he got that input, he realized that his path is the best for Floridas high school students. THE ISSUE: Education reform.OUR OPINION: Legislation will help.

Or, fax to 352563-3280 or email to letters@chronicleonline.com LETTERS to the Editor Pay no taxes Not only did Duke Energy refuse to pay its Citrus County tax bill, they also paid no federal income tax from 2008-10. According to a column in the April 14 Tampa Bay Times a study by the Citizens for Tax Justice, 30 U.S. corporations actually paid no federal taxes. Many including Duke, to the tune of 3.5 percent enjoyed a negative federal income tax rate due to tax loopholes. Other examples are General Electric, Wells Fargo and DuPont. While these companies turn over tremendous profits, they pay no federal taxes. Their tax burden is shifted to us, the average Joe Taxpayer. Its tough to feel any sympathy for an electric utility that dodges federal and local taxes, still makes profits, and makes us, the consumer, pay their share of both local and federal taxes. Then they also expect us to pay for a nuclear plant in Levy County that they may never build.DJ in locker roomIm watching the Tampa Bay Rays ballgame and they talk about a DJ in the locker room. What does that mean? What does the DJ in the locker room do? I sure would like to know.Editors note: Rays Manager Joe Maddon often brings in entertainment acts to keep the team loose before games. He recently brought in a disc jockey (DJ) to play music and a magician to perform tricks for the team. Better off in PhillyThis is for the article on the rudeness and I want to talk to Miss Manners. Does she realize the rude people are not from here I repeat, not Southerners? We have no problem with driving and manners until the transplants arrive. Youd probably be better off in Philadelphia.Driving a wedge All Ive got to say is, after reading Leonard Pitts article in todays Chronicle (April 22), he does nothing but try to separate the whites and the blacks. He constantly knocks the GOP Most of the GOP not all, but then theres not all the Democrats either, because what they say and what they do are like two different things. The Republicans have helped the blacks more than anyone and all he does is try to put a wedge between.Absent from votingI was reading the Monday (April 22) Chronicle in the section of How our Lawmakers Voted and I notice that our Congressman Nugent didnt vote on any item there. I think we pay them to at least vote whether we agree or disagree with their votes. He seems to be absent in action. If hes not going to represent us, we need to vote someone else in next time regardless of party. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about local or statewide subjects.

Support your local mall As a small business owner, I and many of us adopted the buy local mentality that has been sweeping the nation in a justified effort to keep our hard-earned (and much needed) money within our communities. Of course, we all want to support Citrus Countybased businesses; however, Ive come to find the purchasing decisions we make dont always reflect this approach. This is the case with our local and only Citrus County Mall located in Crystal River. There are countless benefits to working with local stores and vendors, and Id like to challenge our business community to buy local and employ the various services and retail providers to make a real difference within our county and with your local mall. As decision makers, we need to go beyond paying lip service to the buy local philosophy and start making it a priority. This might be easier to say than implement, but its worth doing, and heres why: Money stays in the community. Most money spent outside of Citrus County wont come back thus we need to band together to create a cycle of support for local businesses. Additionally, thriving businesses contribute to local nonprofits, many of which are in great need of extra funding. Support local jobs. Were all painfully aware of Citrus Countys 13 percent-plus unemployment rate, and supporting locally owned businesses creates more local jobs. We just had one black eye applied to us that will affect our employment rate in the future; we dont need the second eye blackened by closing more stores in the mall or elsewhere within Citrus County. Support local decision making. Supporting locally owned businesses ensures important decisions are made by people who live in the community by people who will feel the impacts of those decisions. Support product diversity. A multitude of small businesses develop products based on the needs of their local customers, not a national sales plan, which generates a much broader range of product choices. With your support for local businesses, we can continue to offer the product choices available in our community that makes it unique, whether it is a local farmers market or the mall. Im asked by locals every day, How long have you been at the mall? They seemed shocked when I tell them we moved into the mall last October. Local shops cant make it unless the community (and our local merchant governing organizations and municipalities) are willing to support the merchants within the county and within your one and only mall. Yes, there are some vacancies in the mall, and management is making great strides to fill those vacancies at a great lease rate. Just talk to them. If you are looking to start a business: Make a decision to be part of a Merchant Village, the Crystal River Mall. For your shopping needs, make a decision to support local businesses, whether it be the mall or any other business centers in Citrus County.Roger Osborne, independent retailer All About Nature Crystal River Mall Please dont block progress Mr. Rose: The city of Crystal River has received inquiries from the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) regarding the potential impact on pending Coastal Partnership Initiative (CPI) funding that would support the current lyngbya harvesting efforts as a result of the various issues your organization has raised with respect to that harvesting program. The indication is that the CPI funding could be delayed by a year or lost altogether as a result of concerns that have been brought to NOAAs attention regarding potential delays in the permitting of this project. The effort to clean Kings Bay of lyngbya enjoys widespread community support, and it is disappointing funding to support that effort could be adversely impacted as a result of your organizations effort to restrict the harvesting program. It would seem all parties could put aside differences of opinion in other areas and work cooperatively on the goal of cleaning Kings Bay of a noxious algae such as lyngbya, the control of which can only improve the water quality of Kings Bay and help provide a more sustainable food supply for manatees to aid in their protection. I urge you to work with our community to move the harvesting project forward rather than blocking the projects progress.

Associated PressNEW YORK They sweep. They swab. They sterilize. And still the germs persist. In U.S. hospitals, an estimated 1 in 20 patients pick up infections they didnt have when they arrived, some caused by dangerous superbugs that are hard to treat. The rise of these superbugs, along with increased pressure from the government and insurers, is driving hospitals to try all sorts of new approaches to stop their spread: Machines that resemble Star Wars robots and emit ultraviolet light or hydrogen peroxide vapors. Germresistant copper bed rails, call buttons and IV poles. Antimicrobial linens, curtains and wall paint. While these products can help get a room clean, their true impact is still debatable. There is no widely-accepted evidence that these inventions have prevented infections or deaths. Those hospital infections are tied to an estimated 100,000 deaths each year and add as much as $30 billion a year in medical costs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency last month sounded an alarm about a nightmare bacteria resistant to one class of antibiotics. That kind is still rare but it showed up last year in at least 200 hospitals. Complicating matters is the fact that larger proportions of hospital patients today are sicker and more susceptible to the ravages of infections, said Dr. Marisa Montecalvo, a contagious diseases specialist at Westchester. Theres a growing recognition that its not only surgical knives and operating rooms that need a thorough cleaning but also spots like bed rails and even television remote controls, she said. Now theres more attention to making sure that all the nooks and crannies are clean, and that its done in as perfect a manner as can be done, Montecalvo said. Enter companies like Xenex Healthcare Services, a San Antonio company that makes a portable, $125,000 machine thats rolled into rooms to zap Cdiff and other bacteria and viruses dead with ultraviolet light. Xenex has sold or leased devices to more than 100 U.S. hospitals, including Westchester Medical Center. The market niche is expected to grow from $30 million to $80 million in the next three years, according to Frost & Sullivan, a market research firm. Mark Stibich, Xenexs chief scientific officer, said client hospitals sometimes call them robots and report improved satisfaction scores from patients who seem impressed that the medical center is trotting out that kind of technology. Some experts say theres not enough evidence to show the machines are worth it. No national study has shown that these products have led to reduced deaths or infection rates, noted Dr. L. Clifford McDonald of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His point: It only takes a minute for a nurse or visitor with dirty hands to walk into a room, touch a vulnerable patient with germy hands, and undo the benefits of a recent space-age cleaning. Ribbons Associated Press Volunteer Christina Newman ties ribbons to a tree Monday at Jenny Lind Elementary School to remember murder victim Lelia Fowler, in Valley Springs, Calif. Authorities are searching for the killer of Fowler, 8, who was found dead by her 12-year-old brother in the familys Valley Springs home Saturday. Thought leader was Mason ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. The Albuquerque man accused of stabbing four churchgoers during Sunday Mass told police he was after the choir leader because he thought the man was a Mason. According to a criminal complaint, 24-year-old Lawrence Capener said he was going after the choir leader at St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church because his speech was different and he was 99 percent sure he was a Mason. Capener said he stabbed others who tried to subdue him because he thought they might be Masons, too. Iraq war resister court-martialFORT CARSON, Colo. A court-martial got under way Monday for the first female U.S. Army soldier to flee to Canada to avoid a second tour of duty in the Iraq war. Army Pfc. Kimberly Rivera is charged with desertion and could face up to five years in prison and a dishonorable discharge if convicted. Rivera, 30, was a wheeled-vehicle driver in Fort Carsons 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team and served in Iraq in 2006. She has said that, while there, she became disillusioned with the U.S. mission in Iraq. During a two-week leave in the U.S. in 2007, Rivera crossed the Canadian border after she was ordered to serve another tour in Iraq. She applied for refugee status but was denied. Rivera was first ordered to leave Canada or face deportation in 2009, but she appealed that decision. The mother of four faced another deportation order issued in 2012. She was arrested at the U.S. border and taken into military custody.Brief hearing held in letters case OXFORD, Miss. A Mississippi man charged with making a deadly poison sent to President Barack Obama and others was ordered held without bond until a hearing later this week when prosecutors are expected to describe what evidence they have against him James Everett Dutschke made a brief appearance Monday in federal court wearing an orange jumpsuit with his hands shackled. Dutschkes arrest early Saturday capped a week in which investigators initially zeroed in on a rival of Dutschkes, then decided they had the wrong man. Dutschke has denied involvement in the mailing of the letters, saying hes a patriot with no grudges against anyone.

Bangladesh police interrogate ownerSAVAR, Bangladesh A Bangladesh court on Monday gave police 15 days to interrogate the owner of a building that collapsed last week, killing at least 382 people, as rescuers used heavy machinery to cut through the destroyed structure after giving up hopes of finding any more survivors. Mohammed Sohel Rana, who was arrested Sunday as he tried to flee to India, will be held for questioning on charges of negligence, illegal construction and forcing workers to join work. His father, Abdul Khaleque, was also arrested on suspicion of aiding Rana to force people to work in a dangerous building. The illegally constructed, 8-story Rana Plaza collapsed in a heap Wednesday morning as thousands of people worked inside in five garment factories. About 2,500 survivors have been accounted for.Prime minister escapes bombing DAMASCUS, Syria Syrias prime minister narrowly escaped an assassination attempt in the heart of the heavily defended capital Monday, state media said, laying bare the vulnerability of President Bashar Assads regime. The bombing, which killed several other people, highlights an accelerating campaign targeting government officials, from midlevel civil servants to the highest echelons of the Syrian regime. State television said Prime Minister Wael alHalqi was not hurt in the bombing, which struck his convoy as it drove through the posh Mazzeh neighborhood. The attack on al-Halqi punctuated a series of attacks on government officials in recent weeks. On April 18, gunmen shot dead the head of public relations at the Ministry of Social Affairs while he dined at a Mazzeh restaurant. A day later, a Syrian army colonel was killed in Damascus, and five days after that a bomb killed an official from the Electricity Ministry.Blast injures at least 35 in Prague PRAGUE A powerful blast believed to be a gas explosion ripped open an office building in the center of Prague on Monday, injuring at least 35 people and sending shockwaves through the Old Town tourist district.

Authorities said two or three people were still believed to be missing, but sniffer dogs searching the rubble had not indicated that anyone was buried and the prime minister said it appeared no one had died.

US loans from China at issue America holds bulk of national debt Associated PressWASHINGTON Despite what you may have heard, China isnt the countrys biggest creditor. America is. The bulk of the national debt soon to exceed a staggering $17 trillion is held by the Federal Reserve, Social Security system, various pension plans for civil service workers and military personnel, U.S. banks, mutual funds, private pension plans, insurance companies and individual domestic investors. China is responsible for just a shade more than 7 percent of that total debt. And while it remains the single largest foreign lender (just ahead of Japan), Chinas been slowly trimming its holdings, down from nearly 10 percent a few years ago. Overall, all foreign investors including national central banks account for roughly one third of the total outstanding federal government debt. Also, China is suddenly having debt problems of its own. Heavy recent lending by its banks comes as the recovery in the worlds second-largest economy seems to be stalling. The export giant posted a rare trade deficit in March. The national debt will soon be front-and-center again as a deeply divided Congress wrestles with an expected new Obama administration request to increase the governments borrowing authority, the legislatively set debt ceiling. The higher limit would not authorize borrowing for new spending but just enables the government to pay all the bills already racked up. Theres a huge misconception here. The guy on the street thinks that were up to our ears in indebtedness to China. And it is a large absolute amount. But the public holds a lot more, said Nicholas R. Lardy, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. And the politicians have not done anything to try to have a more reasonable conversation about this. China holds just $1.22 trillion in U.S. Treasury bonds and bills, or 7.3 percent of the current $16.88 trillion total national debt, according to the Treasury Departments Major Foreign Holders of Treasury Securities for February, the most recent month available. China also holds about $200 billion in long-term securities of U.S. agencies, including bonds of nationalized mortgage holders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, although it has been steadily trimming these holdings since 2008. Social Security holds $2.7 trillion of the debt in its trust fund, in the form of special unmarketable Treasury bonds. The Federal Reserve holds a $1.7 trillion portfolio of Treasury notes and bonds, much of it accumulated over the past four years with its heavy purchase of U.S. securities to stimulate the economy and hold down interest rates. Together, Social Security and the Fed are holding over 25 percent of the total debt. Stunning view of hurricane on Saturn Germ-zapping robots put to use

Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. D. Wayne Lukas and Gary Stevens know what its like hearing the roar of the crowd and inhaling the intoxicating scent from dozens of red roses in the Kentucky Derby winners circle. At their advanced ages, they want to feel it all again. On Saturday, theyll make another run at winning Americas greatest race, and if experience counts, this duo might have an edge. Lukas and Stevens are teaming with Oxbow, while the trainer considered the sports elder statesman also will saddle Will Take Charge. The colts will be Lukas 46th and 47th Derby starters, the most of any trainer in the races 138-year history. He has won it four times, but not since 1999. I dont feel any different than when I came in here at 50. Theres still the adrenaline rush. Theres still the enthusiasm, Lukas said. The horse is the most important ingredient. You better have the horse and then some luck. Stevens has ridden in 18 Derbies and won three times, including twice with Lukas 1988 aboard the filly Winning Colors and 1995 with Thunder Gulch. The 50-year-old jockey is four months into a comeback after being retired for seven years. At 77, Lukas would be the oldest trainer to win the Derby. The karma is good between us, Lukas said. The experience factor for me is so big here. With 20-horse fields, having been there and won, it makes a huge difference for me. Im going to be comfortable and not worry about it. Stevens considers Lukas to be a second father, while the trainers only son, Jeff, is like a brother. Theres definitely a mutual respect, the jockey said. Were both highly motivated. We havent lost our need for big moments. Wayne is able to transmit that enthusiasm level to his whole team. Ive been part of the team for a long time. Stevens resumed riding in early January, the same week he got a call from Lukas advising him that the trainer had a couple of promising 3-year-old colts who could make the Derby. I was kind of thinking, Yeah right, wouldnt that be great, and here we are, said Stevens, who juggles his duties as a racing TV commentator with his riding commitments. He had quit in 2005, driven out by unrelenting knee pain that had him downing anti-inflammatories every day for the previous 15 years. Stevens battled his weight, too, during the final five years he was riding. In retirement, he ballooned to 134 pounds huge for a jockey. Once he decided to mount a comeback, he hired a personal trainer, a nutritionist and a sports psychologist. Now hes down to 113 pounds, and is mentally relieved knowing that he doesnt have to sweat off extra pounds. I couldnt feel better, he said. Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Lottery, TV/B3 Basketball/ B4 Sports briefs/ B4 Astros rough up Yankees, Pettitte in New York. / B2 S PORTS Section B TUESDAY, APRIL 30, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Associated Press New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow warms up Dec. 30, 2012, before a game against the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park, N.Y. The New York Jets waived Tebow on Monday. Football future in doubt for former Gator standout Associated PressNEW YORK The possibilities appeared endless for Tim Tebow. Here he was, perhaps the most popular player in the NFL, in New York as a member of the Jets and maybe the biggest thing to hit Broadway since Joe Namath himself. There were billboards outside the Lincoln Tunnel in New Jersey welcoming Tebow, and sandwiches named after him at Manhattan delis. He also had a legion of fans who followed him because of his strong Christian beliefs, and in New York, he would be able to take advantage of countless media and marketing opportunities. And then, it all went terribly wrong. Or, more like it, the whole idea was completely flawed from the start. For Tebow. And for the Jets. Tebow was waived Monday morning, the end of an embarrassingly unsuccessful one-season experiment in New York that produced more hype and headlines than production on the field. And it all ended quietly, with a three-paragraph news release. Unfortunately, coach Rex Ryan said in a statement, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. It also left Tebows football future very much in doubt. A year after he threw a TD pass to win a playoff game in overtime for Denver, the Heisman Trophy winner with two college national titles at Florida and a nationwide following may have suited up for the last time. No NFL team has made a pitch to get him. The only nibble so far came from the Montreal Alouettes. They hold his rights in the Canadian Football League and said he could compete for a job as a backup. This is the same guy who led the Broncos to the postseason in 2011, but became expendable when Denver signed Peyton Manning as a free agent. The popular backup quarterback was acquired by the Jets in March 2012 for a fourthround draft pick and $1.5 million in salary. He was introduced at the Tebow Time in NY over after Jets cut QB See TEBOW / Page B3 Senate gives ok to pro teams Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Miami Dolphins and other professional sports teams in the state are moving closer to their goal of getting taxpayer help to pay for new stadiums and renovations. With time running out during this years session, the Florida Senate voted on Monday in favor of a bill that would allow the Dolphins and other franchises to compete for state money. The vote, which came despite the opposition of Senate President Don Gaetz, sets the stage for the Dolphins to rally from what appeared to be a looming defeat in the Legislature. The Dolphins were aided by a last-minute lobbying blitz by National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell and Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. The two men sat in the Senate gallery and watched as the measure was debated and then approved by a 35-4 vote. Goodell stopped short of promising that the planned $400 million worth of renovations to Sun Life Stadium would help South Florida win the right to host a Super Bowl. But he said it would dramatically improve chances for Miami. NFL owners are supposed to announce locations for the 2016 and 2017 Super Bowls in May. The Dolphins want $3 million a year for 30 years to help pay for renovations. They are also seeking legislation to let Miami-Dade County raise local hotel bed taxes to also pay for the project. Miami-Dade voters are scheduled to vote May 14 on a referendum that increases the local taxes. Early voting started this week. But the measure (SB 306) passed by the Senate would not apply to just the Dolphins. It would require any professional sports franchise seeking money to submit applications which would then be ranked by the state. Others who have been in Tallahassee seeking help this year include the Jacksonville Jaguars, Daytona International Speedway and the city of Orlando. Orlando wants help to build a new stadium to house a Major League Soccer team. NBA veteran center Jason Collins comes out as gay First active player in four major US sports Associated PressWASHINGTON With the simplest of sentences, NBA veteran Jason Collins set aside years of worry and silence to become the first active player in one of four major U.S. professional sports leagues to come out as gay. In a first-person article posted Monday on Sports Illustrateds website, Collins begins: Im a 34-year-old NBA center. Im black. And Im gay. Collins has played for six teams in 12 seasons, most recently as a reserve with the Washington Wizards after a midseason trade from the Boston Celtics. He is now a free agent and wants to keep playing in the NBA. I didnt set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, Im happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasnt the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, Im different, Collins writes. If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why Im raising my hand. Saying he had endured years of misery and gone to enormous lengths to live a lie, Collins immediately drew support for his announcement from the White House, former President Bill Clinton, the NBA, current and former teammates, and athletes in other sports. Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant tweeted he was proud of Collins, writing: Dont suffocate who u r because of the ignorance of others, followed by the words courage and support. Weve got to get rid of the shame. Thats the main thing. And Jasons going to help that. Hes going to help give people courage to come out, said Billie Jean King, a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame who confirmed she was gay after being outed in the early 1980s. I guarantee you hes going to feel much lighter, much freer. The truth does set you free, theres no question. It doesnt mean its easy. But it sets you free, King said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

B2 T UESDAY, A PRIL 30, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M AJOR L EAGUEB ASEBALL Associated PressNEW YORK Carlos Corporan homered among his four hits and drove in four runs, Brandon Barnes had three hits and three RBIs, and the Houston Astros fit comfortably into the role of a slugging American League squad Monday night in a 9-1 romp over the New York Yankees. In their first game in the Bronx as an AL team, the Astros peppered Andy Pettitte for 10 hits and seven runs, both season highs for the lefty. Barnes and Corporan had two-run doubles and Barnes added an RBI single and a double. Barnes and Corporan each set career highs for hits and RBIs. Houston bounced back from a four-game sweep in Boston with an enthusiastic win over the Yankees, who had just taken four straight from Toronto. Lucas Harrell (3-2) kept New York grounded.AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 4, Twins 3DETROIT Prince Fielders towering three-run homer in the sixth inning put Detroit ahead, and the Tigers held on for their fourth straight win, 4-3 over the Minnesota Twins. Detroit trailed 3-1 when Andy Dirks reached on a bunt single and Miguel Cabrera walked. Fielder hit the first pitch over the wall in left-center for an opposite-field homer. That part of the fence is about 405 feet from home plate. Max Scherzer (3-0) allowed three runs and six hits in 7 1/3 innings. He struck out 10 without a walk. Drew Smyly finished the eighth and got the first two outs of the ninth, and Joaquin Benoit finished for his second save. Mike Pelfrey (2-3) allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings. Indians 9, Royals 0 KANSAS CITY, Mo. Ubaldo Jimenez pitched into the eighth inning, Ryan Raburn hit two home runs and the Cleveland Indians pounded the Kansas City Royals 9-0 to split their four-game series. Raburn hit a three-run shot in the fifth inning and a solo homer in the eighth, and finished the night with four hits. Jason Kipnis also went deep to pace a suddenly potent Indians offense. Not that all the offense was needed. Jimenez (1-2) allowed only two walks and an infield single by Billy Butler over his first seven innings. Otherwise, he kept the Royals off balance in a dazzling start that brought back memories of the pitcher who once threw a no-hitter for the Colorado Rockies. Meanwhile, Wade Davis (2-2) made a second straight miserable start for the Royals. The right-hander allowed eight runs and 12 hits and three walks in just 4 2/3 innings. NATIONAL LEAGUE Braves 3, Nationals 2 ATLANTA Andrelton Simmons hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the seventh inning, then made an eyepopping play to start the ninth as the Atlanta Braves beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 and ended their fourgame losing streak. Atlanta beat the Nationals for the eighth straight time dating to last season. The Braves swept three games at Washington earlier this month. Washingtons Stephen Strasburg ended his career-worst streak of losses in four straight starts. He allowed two runs in six innings. Ian Desmond led off the ninth with a slow grounder that Simmons charged. The Atlanta shortstop slipped as he fielded the ball and fell on his backside, but somehow fired a strike to first base from the seat of his pants. Desmond was called out on a close play, and disagreed with the decision.Brewers 10, Pirates 4MILWAUKEE Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo hit one of five home runs for Milwaukee, which went backto-back twice in a 10-4 rout of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Gallardo also tossed three-hit ball over seven innings, retiring his final 13 batters while improving to 10-2 against Pittsburgh. He and Norichika Aoki hit consecutive homers in the fourth before Carlos Gomez and Yuniesky Betancourt repeated the feat in the fifth. Jean Segura also connected for the Brewers, who added three triples and matched a season high for runs. Gallardo (3-1) gave up two runs, one earned. He struck out five and walked two. Reds 2, Cardinals 1ST. LOUIS Mat Latos outpitched Adam Wainwright, extending his scoreless innings streak to 17, and the Cincinnati Reds got an RBI apiece from Joey Votto and Xavier Paul in a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Aroldis Chapman worked a perfect ninth for his sixth save in six chances. Yadier Molina had an RBI double off Jonathan Broxton that produced the Cardinals first run in 17 innings. Wainwright (4-2) trailed just six pitches in after Shin-soo Choo doubled on his first offering, advanced on a sacrifice and scored on Vottos single. Over his final six innings, the right-hander gave up three hits and one run. Wainwright walked two, one intentionally, after issuing just one in 37 1/3 innings his first five starts. Latos (2-0) worked around five hits and three walks in his sixth quality start in as many outings this season. Cubs 5, Padres 3CHICAGO Darwin Barney and Cody Ransom each drove in two runs and the Chicago Cubs defeated the San Diego Padres 5-3. Barney hit a pair of RBI doubles as he went 2-for-3 and Ransom went 2-for-4 with a home run. Both players also made nice defensive plays in the seventh with men in scoring position to preserve the Cubs lead. Kevin Gregg got the final out of the eighth with men on second and third and worked a perfect ninth to get his fourth save. After a 5-13 start to the season, the Cubs have won five of seven. San Diegos Clayton Richard (0-3) gave up five runs and seven hits, including two home runs, in 5 2/3 innings. Everth Cabrera went 3 for 4 and scored two runs.

C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE The rankings would then be submitted back to the Legislature for approval. Sen. Rene Garcia, R-Hialeah, argued against the bill, saying it was wrong to give help to millionaires and billionaires at a time when legislators cant agree to draw down federal aid to provide health insurance to the states poor. Dolphins owner Ross countered Garcias criticisms. He said afterward he would still wind up footing most of the bill for the stadium upgrades and that the effort would ultimately help the community. The team has also agreed to reimburse most of the state money back after a 30-year period. Gaetz said he voted against the bill because the final version removed the repeal of a tax credit now enjoyed by banks in the state. Gaetz had initially pushed for the end of the tax credit as a way to pay for the millions that will now go to sports teams. Lawmakers are scheduled to end their annual session on May 3. The bill heads next to the Florida House but House Speaker Will Weatherford, RWesley Chapel, on Monday praised the latest version of the bill because it creates a process for approving pro sports incentives. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has previously stated he could support incentives for sports team as long as it includes certain protections for the state. They include requiring local governments and to team owners provide matching money for any stadium upgrades Retired Hall of Fame rider Pat Day bumped into Stevens outside Lukas barn at Churchill Downs and told him, Youre looking good. Lukas thinks so, too. Ive seen him with his shirt off, he said. The weight doesnt seem to be a factor. Stevens is the seventh different jockey to ride Oxbow, who is 2 for 9 in his short career. He was aboard for the first time in the Arkansas Derby, where the colt finished fifth, teaching his rider a valuable lesson about lagging behind too long. He doesnt want to be taken ahold of and come from behind, said Stevens, who unsuccessfully tried to weave Oxbow through traffic. Hes a free-running horse. Lukas might have dumped a less seasoned rider, but he and Stevens have been through too much together. He gives a horse a chance to win. You get riders that dont give you a chance to win a lot of times, Lukas said. The good ones all do that. Thats all you can ask. Lukas likes Oxbows high-cruising rate and high energy level. Hes a tough cookie and he runs that way, he said. Hes so competitive. So are the two wily veterans, whose lined faces give away their years spent chasing victories at the racetrack. Another Derby victory would boost both Lukas and Stevens in the record book. Lukas would break a tie for second with Herbert Derby Dick Thompson, who also won four. Ben Jones holds the record with six wins. Stevens would tie the late Hall of Famer Bill Shoemaker for second with his fourth win. Oxbow is owned by legendary Calumet Farm, home to two Triple Crown champions, a record eight Derby winners, and both Ben Jones and two-time Derby-winning trainer Jimmy Jones. Wouldnt this be something if Calumet could win another one? marveled Stevens. It would be big for the reunited Hall of Fame trainer and jockey, too. I dont just want to go out there and ride around, Stevens said. I want to get my picture taken. Jets facility to plenty of fanfare at a lavish news conference, with Tebow repeatedly saying he was excited to be in New York. It turned out to be one of the few high points in Tebows stay with the Jets. Along with his shirtless jog from the practice field in the rain during training camp, of course. The Jets never figured out a way to use Tebow effectively, and he never forced the issue by being a good enough player in practice to make Ryan and his coaches put him on the field more in games. If he were to happen to call me, I would say, Look, youre starting over, former NFL GM Ted Sundquist said. Tim Tebow needs to redefine who Tim Tebow is, in my opinion. Hes no longer a first-round quarterback. Even recently retired Jets special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff labeled the way the team used Tebow an absolute mess. It all cost Tebow his job, along with former general manager Mike Tannenbaum and former offensive coordinator Tony Sparano both fired in part because of their roles in what was one of the NFLs messiest quarterback situations in recent memory. It also seriously clouds Tebows NFL future, which might be extended only, in some peoples opinion, if he considers a position change. I dont see any team giving him a chance because teams dont want to deal with the following that comes with Tebow, ESPN analyst and former NFL offensive lineman Damien Woody said. Maybe Canada. Tebow was brought to New York to be a dynamic addition to the offense, a complement to Mark Sanchez and a merchandising touchdown for the Jets. Instead, he attempted just eight passes for 39 yards and rushed 32 times for 102 yards and stunningly had no touchdowns. Through it all, Tebow tried to hide his frustration, but acknowledged late in the season that things didnt turn out quite how he expected in New York. I think its fair to say, Tebow said, that Im a little disappointed. Its an amazing fall for a player whose No. 15 Broncos jersey ranked second in national sales to Green Bays Aaron Rodgers in 2011. He seems like a great kid, Sundquist said, and it seems like he could bring some positives to a club if he can just bury this whole thing about him being in your quarterback mix and just let him be No. 39 on your roster, one of your back-end guys who can go somewhere and help you win. The Jets and new general manager John Idzik drafted former West Virginia star Geno Smith in the second round of the NFL draft Friday, giving New York six quarterbacks on its roster and creating uncertainty about Sanchezs future as well. Tebow, who dropped about 15 pounds in the last few months, arrived at the teams facility in Florham Park, N.J., early Monday and was told he had been cut. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason, Ryan said. We wish him the best moving forward.

Trestman worked with Tebow at the Senior Bowl and before the NFL draft in 2010, and raved about his work ethic and potential to become a solid passer. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS: Philip Rivers took a major step back last season for the Chargers, but still can be one of the leagues most productive quarterbacks when hes on his game. So, its unlikely new coach Mike McCoy will look elsewhere for a starter. However, McCoy knows all about what Tebow can do when given an opportunity. The two were together in Denver when Tebow pulled off comeback after comeback during the 2011 season and led the Broncos to the playoffs. McCoy, then Denvers offensive coordinator, worked the offense around Tebows strengths and appeared to be a magician in the process. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS: OK, so its not exactly the homecoming playing in Jacksonville would be, but Tebow would surely be a big draw in his home state even if its as a backup to Josh Freeman. The Buccaneers current backups are Dan Orlovsky, Adam Weber and third-round draft pick Mike Glennon, and Tebow might feel he could overtake them on the depth chart as the No. 2. Tebow has also spent time this offseason working out in Tampa with a former Buccaneers (and Jets) quarterback: Vinny Testaverde. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS: Sure, its a long shot, but Tebow wouldnt be brought in to challenge Tom Brady, of course. Bill Belichick has a knack for bringing in players that other teams discard and reviving their careers in New England. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels drafted Tebow out of Florida while he was the coach in Denver, and being able to tweak the Jets always makes Belichick grin a little under his hoodie. MONTREAL ALOUETTES: The Alouettes hold exclusive negotiating rights to Tebow in the CFL, where some think he might ultimately end up. He could also consider the recent offer made by Brett Bouchy, the owner of the Orlando Predators whod love to see Tebow playing in the Arena League. LECTURE CIRCUIT: This will always be an option for the ultrapopular Tebow, who attracts huge crowds whenever and wherever he speaks at churches and events. Hes not shy about sharing his strong Christian beliefs, and his multitude of fans extend far beyond the football field. Tebow is extremely active with his Tim Tebow Foundation, trying to help and inspire people around the world. When Tebow is done playing football, which he doesnt believe will be anytime soon, he could surely turn appearances as a motivational speaker into a full-time gig.From wire reports

April 17, issued a statement from President Ernie Grunfeld: We are extremely proud of Jason and support his decision to live his life proudly and openly. He has been a leader on and off the court and an outstanding teammate throughout his NBA career. Those qualities will continue to serve him both as a player and as a positive role model for others of all sexual orientation. Collins coach with the Celtics, Doc Rivers, drew a comparison between Mondays announcement and Jackie Robinsons role when he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 as the first black player in Major League Baseball. I am extremely happy and proud of Jason Collins. Hes a pros pro. He is the consummate professional and he is one of my favorite team players I have ever coached, Rivers said. If you have learned anything from Jackie Robinson, it is that teammates are always the first to accept. It will be society who has to learn tolerance. Collins said he quietly made a statement for gay rights even while keeping his sexual orientation a secret. He wore No. 98 with the Celtics and Wizards 1998 was year Matthew Shepard, a gay college student in Wyoming, was killed, and the Trevor Project, a suicide prevention organization, was founded. Momentum has been building toward this sort of announcement from a pro athlete in a top league. NFL players Brendan Ayanbadejo and Chris Kluwe were outspoken in support of state gaymarriage amendments during last years elections. President Barack Obama spoke about his support for gay marriage during his re-election campaign. The topic made waves during Super Bowl week when one player, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver, said he wouldnt welcome a gay member of his team. At the time, Ayanbadejo estimated at least half of the NFL s players would agree with what Culliver said, at least privately. On Monday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to teams reiterating the leagues antidiscrimination policy about sexuality. It includes a section on questions teams cannot ask prospective draft picks and free agents. After the NFL combine in February, three players said officials posed questions about sexual orientation. Living in the nations capital last month while the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments about same-sex marriage had an effect on Collins. Less than three miles from my apartment, nine jurists argued about my happiness and my future. Here was my chance to be heard, and I couldnt say a thing, he writes. I didnt want to answer questions and draw attention to myself. After being a first-round draft pick in 2001, Collins has averaged 3.6 points and 3.8 rebounds for the New Jersey Nets, Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves, Atlanta Hawks, Celtics and Wizards. Jason has been a widely respected player and teammate throughout his career and we are proud he has assumed the leadership mantle on this very important issue, NBA commissioner David Stern said in a statement. Wizards guard Garrett Temple texted to the AP: I was surprised. I didnt know and I was right next to him in the locker room. It definitely took a lot of courage for him to come out. He was a great teammate. Former Collins teammate Jerry Stackhouse, now with the Brooklyn Nets, wrote in a text: I hope Jason is received well by our NBA family. Jason is a friend and a former teammate that Ive enjoyed many laughs and conversations with and his sexual orientation wont change that with me. Ive already reached out to him personally to show support and will encourage more guys to do the same. Several male athletes have previously come out after they retired, including the NBAs John Amaechi, the NFL s Esera Tuaolo and Major League Baseballs Billy Bean. Rick Welts, president and chief operating officer of the NBAs Golden State Warriors, is openly gay. But Collins is the first to do so while planning to keep playing. I think he is immensely brave. I think its a shame in this day and age he has to be immensely brave, but he is, Amaechi told the AP Hes going to be a remarkable and eloquent spokesperson for what it is to be a decent, authentic human being never mind just for gay people. Collins said if he remains in the NBA, he could face uncomfortable reactions from spectators. I dont mind if they heckle me. Ive been booed before. There have been times when Ive wanted to boo myself. But a lot of ill feelings can be cured by winning, he wrote. He added: I hope fans will respect me for raising my hand. And I hope teammates will remember that Ive never been an in-yourface kind of guy. All you need to know is that Im single. I see no need to delve into specifics.

Collins has become the first male professional athlete in the major four American sports leagues to come out as gay.

COLLINS Continued from Page B1 Collins coming out reactionIf you have learned anything from Jackie Robinson, it is that teammates are always the first to accept. It will be society who has to learn tolerance. Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers. It is also the straightforward statement of a good man who wants no more than what so many of us seek: to be able to be who we are; to do our work; to build families and to contribute to our communities. former President Bill Clinton. Hey Jason Collins-you are now an activist!!! And trust me, you will sleep a lot better nowfreedom is a sweet feeling indeed! tennis great Martina Navratilova. Jason has been a widely respected player and teammate throughout his career and we are proud he has assumed the leadership mantle on this very important issue. NBA Commissioner David Stern. I only want one thing out of my teammate: a commitment to winning. Whether he is straight, gay, black, white, from Earth, or from Mars is immaterial. Just help us win. Miami Heat forward Shane Battier. I dont think hell be received any differently. There shouldnt be any reason you would view him differently. Milwaukee Bucks guard J.J. Redick. From wire reports Atlanta wins to even series with Pacers Associated PressATLANTA Josh Smith scored 29 points as the Atlanta Hawks built a 17-point lead at halftime, then withstood an Indiana comeback over the final two quarters to even the series with a 102-91 victory in Game 4 on Monday night. After struggling much of the second half, Smith made every big play down the stretch. He swished a rare 3-pointer, came up with an offensive rebound to set up a 3 by Kyle Korver, then finished off a fast break with a right-handed dunk. Paul George scored 18 of his 21 points in the second half as the Pacers made a game of it but couldnt come back from a 57-40 deficit at the break. Tied at two wins apiece, the series returns to Indianapolis for Game 5 on Wednesday night.Nets 110, Bulls 91 NEW YORK Brook Lopez had 28 points and 10 rebounds, Deron Williams added 23 points and 10 assists, and the Brooklyn Nets beat Chicago 110-91, cutting the Bulls lead to 3-2 in their first-round playoff series. Andray Blatche scored 10 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter and Gerald Wallace had consecutive baskets down the stretch as the Nets finally pulled away in a game they led most of the way, but never by too much. Two days after rallying for a 142-134 triple-overtime victory, the Bulls were outscored 15-1 down the stretch and failed to set up a secondround series with Miami. Instead, they will host Game 6 on Thursday.Late Sunday night Warriors 115, Nuggets 101 OAKLAND, Calif. Stephen Curry shook off a sore left ankle to score 22 of his 31 points in the third quarter, leading the Golden State Warriors past the Denver Nuggets 115-101 on Sunday night for a commanding 3-1 series lead. Curry shot 10 of 16 from the floor and added seven assists in a dominant and dazzling display that rivaled his days in the NCAA tournament for tiny Davidson. His five 3-pointers in the third quarter lifted Golden State to a 20-point lead and its third straight victory in this frenetic and flashy series. Jarrett Jack added 21 points and nine assists and Andrew Bogut broke out in the first half with 12 points and five rebounds for the sixth-seeded Warriors, who can close out the Nuggets in Game 5 tonight in Denver. Ty Lawson scored 26 points and Andre Iguodala had 19 for the third-seeded Nuggets. Associated Press Atlanta Hawks small forward Josh Smith heads to the hoop Monday under pressure from Indiana Pacers power forward David West during the second half in Game 4 of their first-round NBA playoff series in Atlanta. SPORTS BRIEFS Bucs agree to terms with 13 free agentsTAMPA UCLA receiver Jerry Johnson and Arizona State cornerback Deveron Carr are among 13 undrafted college free agents agreeing to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs also announced agreements Monday with South Florida tight Evan Landi; Northern Illinois cornerback Rashaan Melvin; Texas receiver D.J. Monroe; Buffalo linebacker Willie Moseley; Arizona State tackle Brice Schwab; Purdue running back Akeem Shavers; Western Kentucky guard Adam Smith; Georgia cornerback Branden Smith; Massachusetts tackle Nick Speller; Southern Mississippi tackle Jason Weaver and Rutgers receiver Tim Wright.Jaguars part ways with three in front officeJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars have parted ways with three front office personnel, including director of player personnel Terry McDonough. The others dismissed by new general manager Dave Caldwell were Louis Clark, the teams director of pro personnel, and regional scout Chris Prescott. The moves came as no surprise given that most new GMs bring in their own personnel staff after the draft. McDonough served as former GM Gene Smiths righthand man the past four years. Clark was promoted in December 2011. Prescott was credited with scouting 2011 first-round pick Blaine Gabbert, who hasnt proven to be a franchise quarterback. The Jaguars also waived first-year defensive end Jerome Long and first-year receiver Jerrell Jackson. SEC commish wants experts picking field BIRMINGHAM, Ala. Mike Slive wants knowledgeable football people choosing who plays for the national championship. Whatever the selection committees makeup, the Southeastern Conference commissioner is aiming for a process the fans will buy into when the new system takes effect in two seasons. We want football expertise, Slive said on Monday. We want integrity, and we want transparency, because this is our opportunity to make sure that not only are we comfortable but youre (the media) comfortable and all the fans are comfortable that this process is the way it should be. Its not going to be easy. Slive isnt predicting when that final, big piece of the playoff puzzle will be put in place but is hoping it will be in the next several months. Speaking at the Associated Press Sports Editors Southeast regional meeting across from the SECs downtown headquarters, Slive spoke on the playoff system and the potentially stabilized conference alignment among other issues. The Atlantic Coast Conference last week joined the Big Ten, Pac-12 and Big 12 when its members agreed to a grant of rights handing over their television rights to the league. The legally binding deal runs through 2027 and makes conference-jumping nearly impossible. Slive and ESPN are expected to announce a new SEC Network Thursday in Atlanta minus the grant of rights. Looking at it from the outside looking in, it looks like it may create some stability, Slive said. And I do think that at this stage of where we are stability will be constructive so we can move ahead in some other ways. As for the playoffs, the commissioners decided last week that Cowboys Stadium will host the first championship game in the new postseason system. The Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl and Chick-fil-A bowls joined the Rose, Orange and Sugar bowls in the semifinal rotation. The next hurdle is settling on a committee that Slive expects to include from 14 to 20 members, plus the criteria for picking the four semifinal teams. Avs win NHL draft lottery, have No. 1 pick TORONTO The Colorado Avalanche won the NHL draft lottery on Monday. The Florida Panthers own the second pick for Junes draft, while the Tampa Bay Lightning have the third selection. Colorado had an 18.8 percent chance of winning the lottery. The Panthers, who finished last in the NHL with a 15-27-6 mark, had the best odds of winning the lottery at 25 percent, but had to settle for the No. 2 pick. From wire reports

Space designed to help patients R OBIN W ILLIAMS A DAMS The Lakeland Ledger WINTER HAVEN, Fla. B ubbles, changing colors, rose up in tubes as Bill Fink sank slowly into a low chair beside an abstract painting he and artist Tinia Clark donated to Winter Haven Hospital Behavioral Healths Memory Clinic. Their painting is in the clinics new multisensory room, which also offers lights, sounds and other sensations. Along one wall is a long piece of Clarks artwork that includes feathers, sculpted paper, a flag, fake fur and a mounted game board. The room, done in partnership with the University of South Florida, is designed to give dementia patients at the outpatient clinic a positive, non-threatening experience. It is very frustrating for them, said Dr. Iftikhar Rasul. a psychiatrist at the clinic. They become nervous. They feel they are losing control. It brings frustration, anxiety and depression. In the multi-sensory room, he said, the sensations they experience at their own pace can reduce their anxiety. Its designed to be a stress-free area for the clinics memory patients and for caregivers who come there with patients or to attend a dementia caregivers support group that meets twice a month. Its turned out so much better than I ever could have thought, said Aryn Harrison Bush, who has a doctorate in cognitive aging psychology. She is an assistant professor in the USF College of Human and Social Sciences. I think the clients are going to like it and the caregivers, too, said Cynthia Quinton, the clinics social worker. They often need to relax. Two of the clinics staff members and several USF students are being trained as facilitators to be in the room when patients are there. They will take notes but not tell patients what to do. Their primary function there is to help people relax, gain a sense of autonomy and feel more independent, Bush said. An estimated 14,430 Polk County residents had Alzheimers disease in 2011. With at least one caregiver affected for each patient, however, 28,860 would be a truer measure of its impact. That doesnt include other types of dementia, so the number of people and relatives dealing with memory problems is even greater, said Stefanie Thompson, senior program specialist in the Alzheimers AssociationFlorida Gulf Coast Chapter. Fink, who has another type of dementia, showed little interest in the multi-sensory rooms attractions. He sat there peacefully, saying little, as his wife, Carole, reflected on changes in how people with dementia are treated. Her grandmother went into a nursing home when she developed dementia in 1961. Twenty years later, when her father had Alzheimers, her mother resisted joining a support group, Carole Fink said. She was ashamed of my dad and things he did, she said. Her father also spent several years in a nursing home. She wants things to be different for her husband of 52 years, who is 70 and has Lewy body dementia, another type of progressive dementia. Since Billy was diagnosed, weve had a great life, she said. Ive taken him to Europe eight times since 2004. I made up my mind I wasnt going to be ashamed of him. He goes to one of the countys adult day-care centers three days a week, giving her time for errands or sleep. Carole Fink was enthusiastic as she looked around the multi-sensory room, seeing it as an example of changing approaches to dementia care. Another is the Arts Ensemble Education Foundation program in which Clark worked with Bill Fink on painting. She is its healing arts director. Studies of multisensory environments like this are in their infancy, Bush said. Some preliminary studies, however, indicate its potential to improve mood, reduce challenging behaviors, promote a sense of well-being and improve sleeping patterns among adults with dementia, she said in the application for a grant to create the room. Without a cure for Alzheimers, Bush said, alternative approaches must be studied to improve patients lives. There is a big chasm (between) what we know and what we dont know, she said. The drugs right now are not as effective as we wish they were. Calming roomH EALTH & L IFE I n the past year, I have written a lot about the links we have discovered regarding diet and cancer. The obesity epidemic that is taking this country by storm will continue to drive a higher risk of cancer. But our diet as a whole, not for just those who are obese, plays a vital role in our risk of cancer, and also in our outcome after cancer treatment. A new study looking at breast cancer and dairy fat consumption proves this point. For women with a breast cancer diagnosis, high-fat dairy consumption is associated with a higher death risk, according to a study published online in the Journal of the National High-fat dairy See BENNETT / Page C6 Dr. Sunil Gandhi CANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Amiodarone and cancer A miodarone is a drug used for heart patients with irregular heartbeat (Arrhythmia). There are many drugs used for the same purpose, this is one of the older drugs, which was approved more than 25 years ago in the United States by the FDA. It is widely used to treat ventricular arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation a type of arrhythmia. It might be linked to an increased risk for cancer in men and particularly in those with prolonged exposure to the drug, according to a study published online April8 in Cancer. In this populationbased cohort study, Dr. Vincent Yi-Fong Su and I f you are a dog owner, I do not need to tell you how much joy and benefit your pet dog brings you, but did you know there is actually some scientific basis for that? Oxytocin is a hormone that seems to be released in the blood when we have contact with our pet dogs. Oxytocin is a stressreducing hormone that helps people calm down and decreases their anxiety. It is produced in the hypothalamus at the base of the brain, and there are neurons, which are nerve cells, in part of the neurologic system that produce and secrete this oxytocin hormone. Scientists and researchers think that oxytocin could be called a bonding hormone, as it seems to function in certain social situations such as the bond Do dogs make us healthier? T he American Podiatric Medical Association proclaimed April 2013 as Foot Health Awareness Month. The APMA is performing outreach to try and educate the public on important podiatric issues for patients and promoting foot health. The APMA is focusing on bunions this particular month in its Beat Bunion Blues campaign. Educational materials can be viewed and obtained at www.apma.org under the title Foot Health Awareness. In lay terms, bunions are an annoying protrusion of the joint or noticeable bump in the foot where the great toe joins the foot. Discomfort caused by the rubbing on the protruding joint by shoes is by far the most common complaint of those suffering with a bunion. Some also view the bunion as an unacceptable cosmetic problem with the foot. Urban legend and wives tales accuse the wearing of ill-fitting or pointy-toed shoes as the cause of bunion development, but this is not the case. In medical terms, a bunion is termed hallux abductovalgus. Hallux is Latin for the great toe.

A: The FDAs Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) has formalized a longstanding relationship with the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), a nonprofit organization based in Horsham, Pa. ISMPs mission is to educate the health care community and consumers. Medication errors are preventable mistakes that can happen in labeling, packaging, prescribing, dispensing and communications when the medication is ordered. Causes include: Incomplete patient information, with the health care professional not knowing about allergies and other medications the patient is using. Miscommunication between physicians, pharmacists and other health care professionals. For example, drug orders can be communicated incorrectly because of poor handwriting. Name confusion from drug names that look or sound alike. Confusing drug labeling. Identical or similar packaging for different doses. Drug abbreviations that can be misinterpreted. As a part of its ongoing effort to fight these and other risks, CDER has entered into an agreement with ISMP to develop collaborative efforts to reduce preventable harm from medicines, and to more effectively reach consumers with information on how to use medicines safely. The FDA and ISMP each have well-established online pathways for the reporting of medication errors. ISMP hears from front line practitioners like pharmacists, nurses and physicians via its national Medication Errors Reporting Program. ISMP also has a medication error reporting program for consumers. ISMP shares these reports with MedWatch, the FDAs safety information and adverse event reporting system, which covers bad experiences with medical procedures and products that include drugs, devices, supplements and cosmetics. The collaboration is also designed to provide more informational and educational materials for both consumers and health care professionals. And the relationship will broaden FDAs ability to reach out to these groups when there are issues with product safety and effectiveness. ISMP also has two useful, medication error websites: www.ConsumerMedSafety. org: This site is designed to help consumers get involved in preventing medication errors. The extensive information here includes interactive features. For example, typing in the name of a medication will bring up information about side effects, duplicative treatments and drug interactions. A free safety alert service, about medications patients or their family members are taking, also is available. www.ismp.org: This site is designed more for health care professionals, with information that includes medication safety tools and resources, as well as educational and professional webinars and training programs. Both ISMP websites have lists of potential medication safety issues, such as the drugs most likely to be involved in harmful errors, medications with lookalike or sound-alike names, and error-prone abbreviations.

T his week was another one of those rewarding moments in the life of a dentist. It was a few months ago one of my patients, a pharmaceutical rep for one of the big pharmaceutical companies, told me one of the local radiation oncology offices was hosting a screening for head and neck cancer. The office I am referring to is the office of Drs. Bennett and Brant The Robert Biossoneault Oncology Institute in Lecanto. I told her I would be interested in helping out if they could use my help. In just a day or two, I received a call accepting my offer. The screening was this past Saturday. Between Drs. Bennett, Brant, Hodge (from one of their other offices) and I, we must have seen well more than 100 patients in just four hours. Thank God the majority of the patients were screened without any cancer being detected. A few people were put at ease, since what they thought was cancer turned out to be just a variation of normal anatomy. There were a few people who were referred back to their doctors for followup care. If it werent for the doctors and staff at this office who put this together, who knows what would have been in store for those patients who did have a suspicious finding. Speaking of the staff what a nice group of people. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful. I also enjoyed the interaction with the other doctors. As it turned out, I learned a few things from them, and, in turn, they learned a few things from me. The interaction was extremely positive. For any of you who have been a part of something like this in your life, you know what I mean when I say this was a rewarding experience. For those of you who have never taken the time to get involved in an endeavor such as this, you might want to give it a try. We all have gifts and talents we can offer others taking the time to share those gifts is very satisfying. Take that step and get involved. You wont regret it I promise!

Cancer Institute. Researchers from Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, California examined the link between dairy intake, recurrence, and death after a breast cancer diagnosis using data from 1,893 female participants in the Life After Cancer Epidemiology study. The women were diagnosed with early stage invasive breast cancer from 1997 to 2000, and completed the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Food Frequency Questionnaire after diagnosis. During a median followup of 11.8 years, 349 women had a recurrence, and 372 died, with 189 deaths from breast cancer. The findings of this study support a healthy diet before and after a cancer diagnosis. The researchers found that overall, dairy intake was positively related to the overall death rate, but was unrelated to breast cancerspecific outcomes. That is, the more highfat dairy products consumed, the higher the risk of dying, but from causes other than breast cancer. There was no association between low-fat dairy intake and recurrence or survival, but high-fat dairy intake correlated with outcomes in these patients, a lot of high-fat dairy products equals a higher risk of dying, a low level equals a better chance of living. Those consuming really large amounts of high-fat dairy products had an increased breast cancer death rate, and a higher death rate from all causes when compared with the reference group who consumed very little or no high-fat dairy products. Yes, breast cancer recurrence was positively associated with high-fat dairy consumption. The elevated risk persisted across different types of high-fat dairy products. So, the take-home message is to limit, if not totally avoid, the use of high-fat dairy products. This study has proven that intake of a large amount of high-fat dairy products, but not low-fat dairy products, was related to a higher risk of death after a breast cancer diagnosis. Dr. C.

The final cohort consisted of 6,418 patients, and was observed from 1997 to 2008. The analysis found that men had 18 percent higher risk of cancer if they were taking the drug, while risk did not increase in women. U.S. Food and Drug Administration post-marketing surveillance has reported cases of lung masses, thyroid cancer and skin cancer associated with Amiodarone, the researchers point out. The risk was also dose dependent i.e., higher the dose, higher the risk of cancer. Also, patients who took Amiodarone for longer duration had higher risk of cancer than those who took it for shorter duration. Amiodarone has several characteristics that make it unique. First, the drug takes weeks to achieve its maximum effectiveness.This is because Amiodarone is stored in most of the tissues of the body, and to load the body with the drug, all the tissues need to be saturated. Second, Amiodarone leaves the body very, very slowly. I must note that though this is a large study, there are many caveats in it. This study was done in Taiwan; it may or may not apply to the U.S. population. Also, increased risk is small. This is a populationbased study, and so is not as reliable as a well-planned study and is subject to some possible miscalculation. For example, though the researchers adjusted for age, sex and comorbidities, they did not look at potential risk factors, such as smoking, environmental exposure, family history of malignancy, alcohol use and obesity. Still, overall this is a good study. My suggestion is if you absolutely need Amiodarone, take it. It is still a good drug. The benefit of the drug many times outweighs the potential risk. Patients on the drug should go for all appropriate screening for cancer. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Abductovalgus describes the position and function of the joint where the bunion occurs. Muscle imbalance that is inherited is the actual cause of the gradual dislocation of the great toe joint in persons who develop bunions. Juvenile bunions of children do exist, but are not very common and again are inherited. Bunions develop slowly as we advance in age in most cases. Bunions tend to become a complaint in the fourth to sixth decades of life. Women tend to complain about bunions more than men as a function of shoe style choices and trends. Bunions can be painful when shoe gear and the joint impart pressure to the tissue between them. For simplicity, I tell patients there are three types of bunions. The first is the bump bunion, where shoes rubbing on the joint, or cosmesis, generate the patients complaints. The second is the arthritic bunion. This occurs when the deviation of the joint prematurely wears the cartilage away causing wear and tear or osteoarthritis discomfort whenever the joint moves. The third is what I call the combo bunion that has both bump pain in shoes and arthritic pain when the joint moves regardless of being shod or unshod. Regardless of the cause, severity or appearance of the bunion, options for dealing with them are twofold: you can treat the bunion with conservative measures or surgery. Conservative measures include, but are not limited to, benign neglect, shoe changes, activity modification, cobbler modifications and different types of pads or cushions. Devices such as bunion splints, physical therapy and toe spacers do not work to reverse or cure bunions. There are many surgical alternatives that are too complicated to go into detail for this column. Generally, surgical alternatives fall into three categories, in my opinion. Simple bunionectomy or soft-tissue procedures remove the bunion bump and attempt to rebalance the joint. These are the least aggressive procedures and thus have the least correction and highest risk of the bunion returning. Osteotomy with bunionectomy is by far the most common surgery for bunions. This surgery offers increased correction, longevity, and a lower risk of the deformity returning than simple bunionectomy alone. Healing time and postoperative restrictions are greater, however. Bunionectomy with osteotomy or fusion nearer the arch offers the greatest correction and insurance against a return of the deformity, but the patient has to be non-weight bearing until healed. This means eight weeks with crutches and possible casting. This is the least common bunion surgery, as patients do not like the nonnegotiable recovery restrictions. Hallux limitus or rigidus is a painful condition in the same area that is often confused with a bunion by patients. Distinguishing between the two and getting the appropriate advice and treatment is imperative as treatment for bunion when the real pathology is hallux rigidus will fail and vice versa. Podiatrists and orthopedists can distinguish between these with and an examination and radiographs. I am a proponent of conservative measures for managing bunions. I recommend elective surgery only as a last resort when painful symptoms affect daily life. My wife actually has bunions on both feet, one worse than the other, but they do not bother her, so I do not recommend surgical correction. I strongly recommend against a patient having bunion surgery for cosmesis. These are my opinions only, and other physicians may disagree and have valid reasons for their opinion. Hopefully, Ive shed some light on bunions during the APMA Foot Health Awareness Month. See a podiatrist or check out www.apma.org during Foot Health Awareness Month for additional information regarding bunions or other foot issues. David B. Raynor.

This bonding effect of the oxytocin hormone is probably stronger in some instances between dog and man than between humans. I think we all probably know examples of when friends or family have bailed out and the dog has remained faithfully at our side. Some outsiders from other areas of the world look at dogs as being dirty and useless, and might think we are crazy in the way we treat our pets, but there are certain cultures and countries that cherish their pets, and treat them like a family member, and spend and do more for their pet than they would a fellow human. The statistics in the pet industry, I think, would certainly support that. Besides creating a bonding effect and being a stress-reducer, dogs also lower our blood pressure and heart rate, and this may be due to the fact that, unlike other pets, you have to interact, walk and exercise with your dog. This gets you up and off of your duff and youre doing something that is good for you. Dogs, especially puppies, have a way of eliciting a humans caregiving response with their cute faces, which also bring out human characteristics such as sympathy and concern all positive feelings that are not only good to experience, but good for our physical and mental well-being, stimulating the oxytocin hormone release. One of the interesting points about dogs is they will willingly gaze into a humans eye, unlike other animals. Researchers think this is very similar to the gaze between a mother and her infant, which is undeniably rewarding and makes you feel good. Dogs, as well as other pets, also teach children to be caring and sympathetic, and teach us how to be responsible for another life. Despite some researchers who feel pets are social parasites that drain our affection, food, money, time and energy, the benefits of having a pet dog are all around us and noticeable each and every day. Service dogs can help our veterans deal with anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. The Animal Planet shows feature one cute dog or puppy after the other. Or some cute or mischievous behavior by a pet caught on YouTube, is popular to watch and share with friends. Dogs serve unselfishly in law enforcement and military settings, and provide personal protection and companionship, but now we have scientific evidence they just somehow magically make us feel good and prolong our lives and happiness.

T UESDAY, A PRIL 30, 2013 C9 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Lou Holtz, a former football coach, said, Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it. Is bidding 10 percent what your partner bids and 90 percent how you respond to it? Not really; it ought to be an equal division of labor. This week we are looking at responders rebids. In todays deal, what should North do? As we learned yesterday, if North has a weak hand with 6-9 points (or a poor 10), he must pass or bid two hearts or two spades. Here, though, North has game-invitational strength. To show that, he must rebid two no-trump or three of a bid suit (or, although it is impossible here, two of a new suit, as long as that would not be the fourth suit named in the auction, which we will cover later in the week). With three-card heart support, North should jump to three hearts. South would then bid four hearts. Next, look at the West hand. What should he lead against four hearts? The club queen looks mighty tempting. But what happens then? South wins with his ace, takes dummys top spades to shake his club loser, and plays a diamond. West can win and shift to a trump, but declarer plays another diamond. South wins the next heart lead in his hand and ruffs a diamond on the board. He loses only three diamond tricks. With such strong diamonds sitting over declarers second suit, West should lead a trump. Then, as long as he leads another heart every time he is on play, he gets four diamond tricks to defeat the contract.

Since graduating from high school, hes lost touch with the few people he considered friends and has become very isolated. Together with the stress of passing his college courses, he has spiraled into a serious depression. Jarrod constantly laments that he has no friends and that his family only wants him to get a job and move out. (They recently staged an intervention and referred to him as a failure to launch.) He thinks no one besides me would care if anything happened to him. He often states that he wishes everything would just end. I want Jarrod to see a doctor and get help, but he says the idea of talking to someone about his problems scares him and stresses him out even more. Hes convinced no one can help him. He thinks antidepressants would make him feel worse. When I suggest that a better sleep schedule, healthier eating habits and more exercise could help, he says he doesnt care enough to try. How do I help him find the motivation to get the help he needs? I love him and am terrified that hes just given up on life. Worried in the Mountains Dear Worried : Jarrod is depressed, but his unwillingness to get help prevents him from getting better and has become a burden on you. First, please understand that you are not responsible for his mental health, and you cannot help him without his cooperation. Tell him that one little step could make all the difference, and suggest he speak to a counselor at the college. Offer to go with him. You can notify the counseling office about Jarrods depression and ask them to check on him. We also recommend The Depression and Bi pol ar Support Alliance (dbsalliance .org). Dear Annie : My wife and I frequently drive her 80something parents around. Here is the problem: From the time my father-in-law gets in the car until we reach our destination, he sings, whistles and hums. This grates on me like fingernails on a blackboard. I have tried turning up the radio, but he just increases his volume. I attempt conversation, but he only stops singing long enough to answer my question and then immediately resumes his serenade. I know if I were to ask him to stop, it would be the beginning of World War III. He has a bad temper and a short fuse. I get along with him fine otherwise, but I find this incredibly rude and increasingly unbearable. I try to avoid driving them, but our proximity and common gatherings make it hard. My wife seems oblivious. She has been subjected to this all her life. No one has ever had the gumption to poke this wasp nest with a stick. What can I do? Want Duct Tape Dear Want: You could try singing along at the top of your lungs. But really, we dont think Dad does this deliberately to annoy you. It sounds like an ingrained habit. Either tolerate it, drive separate cars or ask your wife to drive while you listen to something else through a set of headphones. Dear Annie : If Technically Impaired in New York wishes to learn how to text, great, but she shouldnt feel obligated to invest in this extra feature or spend time learning how to do it. My extremely techie children took the time to write old-fashioned postcards and handwritten letters to their grandmother, who greatly appreciated their consideration. I taught them that they should be deferring to her needs rather than the other way around.

MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCitrus County Hospital Board members are prepared to pay a Pennsylvania company $60,000 or more to communicate the boards efforts in selling, leasing or merging Citrus Memorial hospital. While the contract isnt finalized, CCHB members agreed last week they need outside public relations help in anticipation of opponents, such as those affiliated with the hospital, who would try to block the CCHBs progress. Joshua Nemzoff, president of Nemzoff & Co. of New Hope, Pa., is in line to earn a $20,000 monthly retainer as a transition manager to negotiate the hospitals sale, merger or lease with another company. CCHB members chose Nemzoff at a special meeting in mid April. The proposed contract is for 12 months with a potential total payout of $775,000 to Nemzoff if he closes a sale, lease or merger PATFAHERTY Staff writerOn a perfect beach day Steve Schwartz picks up trash and keeps an eye out for customers. Schwartz and his food trailer have been a familiar sight at Fort Island Gulf Beach for the past few years. During that time he has fine-tuned the menu, added seashore sundries and been the go-to-guy for tourist directions, stranded motorists, blow-up beach toys and questions about everything from jumping fish to the nuclear plant. But if youre visiting the county beach this week, you may want to pack a lunch. His CHRISVANORMER Staff writerTwo long-envisioned Citrus County transportation projects Suncoast Parkway 2 and Port Citrus are featured in a state study to connect Tampa Bay to Northeast Florida in the future. At Fridays board meeting in Tampa of TBARTA Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) presented a webinar on Floridas Future Corridors Initiative, looking ahead to plan roads to connect two of the states largest regions. Although the presentation was fastpaced, the PowerPoint slides were good, reported Theodora Rusnak, Citrus County representative to TBARTAs Citizens Advisory Committee. The slides and narrative are promised to be posted on the website www.FLFutureCorridors.org. This is important because it opens the public comment period on the latest corridors study, and yes, Citrus County appears a number of times in the planned corridors and study regions. According to the public comment draft of the study, population and economic growth State study features county road projects County ends beach concession MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleSteve Schwartz, owner of the Cookin Good food trailer at Fort Island Gulf Beach, sets up his operation last week. Schwartz has had the contract as the food vendor at the beach for the past three years. Debbie ResslerCCHB chairwoman. Kings Bay gets supportThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Ten million dollars has been floated toward the states threatened freshwater springs with legislators having finished work on a compromise budget bill now expected to get a vote this week. A day after they were left out of a $58 million package for water projects around the state, the Senate directed trust fund money for the springs. The money is far short of the $122 million plan that water districts have drafted to restore a number of endangered springs, which face threats from groundwater pumping and pollution. But the total tops the $6.5 million that Gov. Rick Scott proposed. As part of the budget talks, the House and Senate each outlined $29 million worth of projects on Saturday. Despite the House having initiated discussion for the springs and a number of senators backing the proposal, the springs were not included in initial lists of water projects that would be paid for. But at the urging of Senate President Don Gaetz, RNiceville, money for the springs was drawn from the Florida Forever Trust Fund as supplemental funding lists were released Sunday night. President Gaetz wanted to make a strong commitment for protecting and enhancing our springs, particular as it relates to the Silver Springs area, said Sen.

contract with the county is up. Schwartz and his wife Betsy run Cookin Good, the mobile food concession and have held the contract to serve the small remote beach for the past three years. It was a daily job April through September, and as weather permitted October through March. Like other small local businesses, they dealt with the lingering recession and situations beyond their control. There were swimming bans when the bacteria count got too high, the bathrooms were burned and rebuilt and there was a beach restoration project. Instead of Cookin Good, I couldve named it The International Cart Schwartz said, describing his menu. In addition to the county-required hot dogs, chips and brand-named sodas, he offered arepas, knishes, Italian ices, chicken nuggets, burgers, nachos and fries. Customers could also enjoy grilled cheese or grilled peanut butter and jelly or various breakfast options with coffee. As for hot dogs, the most popular item that day, there was a choice, the popular New Yorkbased brand name and what he calls the Florida dog. The latter is a lower priced nod to the weak economy. Its something a family with children can afford to enjoy, he said. The food reflects his New York area roots, as does his accent. I offer quality food at reasonable rate, he said. On the back of trailer are racks of brochures promoting local businesses and attractions, places I personally recommend, he said. Out front is beach stuff; pails and shovels, sun block, floats and umbrella stands. The food stand also served as a meeting spot, informal complaint window and the lost and found. Schwartz took pride and a sense of ownership in the unstaffed park; picking up trash was a regular routine as was notifying county maintenance when something needed to be fixed. He also had occasions to notify the sheriffs office. The Cookin Good contract ran out in April, with an option to renew for another three years. However, in March, the Board of County Commissioners approved a non-renewal recommended by staff. Schwartz had filed for renewal back in September with two modifications. They had requested a prorated amount for September, a low tourist month, and additional parking. Reasons for non-renewal cited by the county included those requests, citizen complaints about Cookin Good policing the public beach area and concerns DRC Racing Sports (triathlons) had lost sponsors due to actions by Cookin Good personnel. Schwartz agreed there have been some issues, but declined to discuss the process, only saying that if he gets the chance, hell bid on the job again. Were planning to bid again, said Betsy Schwartz, who often helps on busy days.

Freight, business, visitor, commuting and personal trips in the study area heavily depend on the highway system, the study states. Tampa and Jacksonville are the two largest urban centers in Florida without a direct limited-access highway connection today. Travel between the two regions primarily occurs via Interstates 75 and 10, Interstate 75 and U.S. 301 or Interstates 4 and 95. Many of the rural counties are not well connected to the Interstate highways or other limited-access highways today. Making the case for connectivity to claim global markets, the study said that two of the states major deepwater seaports at Tampa and Jacksonville bookend the study area. Tampa is the top seaport in the state by tonnage and Jacksonville is a leader for containers and automobiles. Two other ports in the study area Manatee and Fernandina are reported to be expanding facilities to prepare for growing trade flows, while Port Citrus is undergoing a feasibility study. Citrus County also is mentioned among other counties north of Tampa that will emerge as future centers of population and employment. Suncoast Parkway 2 in Citrus County is seen as one of the traffic relievers for Interstate 75. In fact, the road-building project beyond it figures strongly in the future of regional roadways: An extension of the Suncoast Parkway beyond Citrus County on an existing or new alignment, connecting to I-75 near Ocala, Gainesville or Lake City (would) provide a more direct limited access route between Tampa Bay and the central to northern portion of the study area, as well as to Georgia. Many other issues that will affect the countys future road plans will go before the advisory groups for the Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) on Wednesday. These range from Citrus County Transits improved services to merging with Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization. Lon Frye, operations supervisor of Citrus County Transportation, will present an update of county transit operations. It is supported and guided by FDOT and TBARTA, and is working toward developing an effective transportation network in the county with connections to a regional network in the future. In 2012, 80,047 people rode county buses. At their meetings, both advisory groups will discuss the countys transportation priorities and the merger with Hernando County. Members will hear reports about TBARTAs recent Telephone Town Hall meetings. Citrus County residents took part on April 8 with hosts Citrus County Commissioner Rebecca Bays and gubernatorial appointee Jim Kimborough. The event drew interest from 7,977 residents of Citrus and Hernando counties. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com.

The Pasco County Sheriffs Office reported 21-yearold David Lee Thompson went to a New Port Richey mobile home Friday to help his friend move. The friend and his father began discussing what to do with the puppies since the son couldnt afford to keep them. An arrest report said the father suggested killing them. The son told deputies he didnt have the guts, so Thompson reportedly killed the puppies. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, APRIL 30, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CHRISVANORMER Staff writerA bill in the Florida Senate to help mobile home park residents stabilize lot rents to sell their homes appears to be stalled in committee level and set to fail passage before the end of the legislative session on Friday. Right now, it appears that were going to have to make another attempt next fall, said Edward Green, president of the Citrus County Citizens Coalition, a manufactured homes residents association. Green has promoted the idea for more than two years to get protection for people whose homes are in mobile home parks, where they own the manufactured home they live in, but rent the lot beneath it. These residents have said they found when they want to sell their home, the prospective buyer withdraws the offer because the park owner will raise the rent for the next tenant. Unable to sell, the resident leaves behind a home that then belongs to the park owner. When Dean offered to sponsor the bill last October at a town hall meeting in Walden Woods organized by Green, state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness, was present. Green said Smith committed to getting a House draft written. But he said that all his bill slots were taken up, Green said. He couldnt sponsor it. The bill had no companion in the House. On Monday, Green had a slim hope for his bill. Sen. Deans office and all of his aides told me from the get-go it is possible and it is still possible, in the 11th hour, to have the bill go through, Green said. He said if they can get it through the Senate, they can pigtail it onto something in the House. So there is still an outside chance, but were not real optimistic right now. Green pointed out that some bills, such as the one to ban texting while driving, took as many as four years to become law. When the session ends, he will seek Deans support to sponsor the bill again next year. In addition, Green said he would approach state Rep. Mike Fasano, RNew Port Richey, to file the companion bill. This isnt a district problem, Green said. It isnt just a county problem. This is a statewide problem. When senior citizens lose everything theyve got because they are unable to sell their home they have to walk away and give it to the park its a statewide problem.

Mobile-home park bill likely to fail Residents looking ahead to next year Editors note: In an economic climate where jobs are at a premium, the Chronicle is featuring an occasional series, Citrus County Works, profiling local Citrus County people and the jobs they perform. Today: Dennis Miller, station manager at WYKE. NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerLECANTODennis Millers career has consisted of simply being Dennis Miller. His is the only job of its kind in Citrus County and, for the most part, always has been. On his income tax form under occupation he puts TV station manager, but thats only because the IRS doesnt recognize being Dennis Miller as a job. Currently, Miller manages WYKE TV and WYKE 104.3 FM, the all-sports talk radio station, both owned by the Key Training Center. He hosts the daily liverecorded Citrus Today TV show and is one-third of the noon hour sports talk show on the radio with Stan Solovich and Brett Newtson. He tinkers with engineering, sells advertising, calls high school football and basketball games for the radio, does voiceover for local commercials that run on the TV station and emcees hundreds of community events, from beauty pageants and fashion shows to Key Training Center telethons. Its a job he fell into as a student at Citrus High School back in the early 1970s and has evolved into over the past 40some years. It helps to have a clear, pleasing-sounding voice, a curiosity about people and an ability to put people at ease and think fast on his feet. I got into radio at 16, as soon as I got my drivers license, Miller said. After school Id work for WYSE, an AM station that used to be in Inverness. Back then it was the only station in Citrus County and was only on from sunup to sundown. In the mornings, he and some other students did a homeroom report on closedcircuit TV. He also wrote freelance newspaper stories for the St. Petersburg Times. Next, he worked a few years at the radio station WTRS and then was hired at the Chroniclewhen it was in Inverness. I was hired for the advertising department and also as production manager, but at that time new hires got to experience working every department at the paper, he said. After four years I went to Citrus 95, and then Country Fox as manager. His next job was executive director of the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce, and somewhere during that time he was at the Dunnellon Chamber of Commerce. Plus, he has volunteered since high school for the Key Training Center. About seven years ago, Key Center executive director Chet Cole asked Miller if he would manage WYKE. Two years ago, WYKE acquired the Yahoo Sports radio station. I think my favorite part of my job is interviewing people, Miller said. We have the most interesting people in the world right here in Citrus County. Ive enjoyed everything Ive done, newspapers, radio, chamber of commerce, and everything has helped me along the way, he said. Ive gotten to know the county and the people, how things work, who the players are. I enjoy working with my hands, but I think my skill is communications, whether its sales or being on the air. Being on the air is the most fun. I guess you could say my job is being a communicator Ive never wanted to do anything else.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-5642927 or nkennedy@chronicle online.com.

A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerIn a span of four hours Saturday, the Citrus County Sheriffs Office and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) collected nearly half a ton of prescription drugs at a drug take-back event. Authorities took back 41 trash bags full, weighing 990 pounds, from two locations in the county one on the east side and another on the west side according to Detective John Bergen of the CCSOs drug mitigation unit. It was an unbelievable turnout, Bergen said. We had a steady stream of people from to 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The DEA agent told me he had to make two trips to collect everything, Bergen added. According to CCSO, Saturdays event was the sixth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by people ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bergen said the collected drugs are taken by the DEA for disposal. The take-back was free and anonymous, no questions asked. It is estimated in the five previous take-back events the DEA and its partners took in more than 2 million pounds more than a thousand tons of pills. The success of this event is fantastic because you know studies have shown that most drug abusers found the drugs in somebodys medicine cabinet, Bergen said. Also, we (law enforcement officials) have found that a lot of break-ins are linked to people trying to find these prescription pills. So, to get rid of it makes a lot of sense, he said. Bergen said in light of this years successful takeback, more events may be planned and he noted the public will be informed in advance of such events. Four days after the first event, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an ultimate user of controlled substance medications to dispose of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the Attorney General to accept them. The law also allows the Attorney General to authorize long-term care facilities to dispose of their residents controlled substances in certain instances. The DEA is drafting regulations to implement the law. According to officials, until new regulations are in place, the CCSO, other local law enforcement agencies and the DEA will continue to have prescription drug take-back events.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

R-Stuart, who as Senate Appropriations Committee chairman headed the budget talks for the Senate. The budget also sets aside another $3 million from the Water Management Lands Trust Fund for the Suwannee River Water Management District for springs restoration and protection projects. Money for the springs was among a long list of last minute changes in which projects that had been omitted from the spending plan suddenly were in the funded column, while a number of other projects got a further bump in dollars. IMG Academy in Bradenton, a studentathlete training center, landed $2.3 million Sunday after having been cut in favor of the money going to the SarasotaBradenton World Aquatic Center in the economic development and transportation portion of the budget. The rowing center, meanwhile, saw its funding bumped from $2.5 million to $5 million with the final round of allocations. The center had requested $5 million to help land the 2017 World Rowing Championship. The water project lists did include money for the emergency restoration of Apalachicola Bay, but $3 million has been set aside in the budget for the Panhandle waterway from the Water Management Lands Trust Fund. The individual water projects also do not include the $70 million that has been directed in the budget for Everglades restoration. One of the water projects negotiators for the House and Senate agreed to support is the Crystal River Kings Bay cleanup $100,000. SPRINGSContinued from Page A1 between Citrus Memorial Health System and another company, CCHB trustee Bob Priselac said. During his interview, Nemzoff urged trustees to hire a public relations firm to combat likely opposition from the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation. The reason you need a p.r. firm is as follows: Youre about to get into a fight; frankly, youre already in the fight. Youre into a fight on multiple counts, Nemzoff told trustees, according to a transcript of the April 15 meeting. You may think its bad, its going to get worse. He added: You have a CEO that doesnt want to do this deal; you have a board thats backing that CEO. You have a discrepancy as to whether you have the authority over this hospital. The hospital, as they organize, is going to organize the employees, the doctors in trying to go against you. At a meeting nine days later, trustees decided that instead of hiring a public relations firm, they would add $10,000 a month to Nemzoffs contract for media relations. After six months, they will decide whether to continue the arrangement or change it. Priselac, in an interview Monday, said trustees need a professional to communicate to the public about steps in the potential sale or lease of the hospital. If we see a lot of misinformation going out there and it appears to be a play to misrepresent the truth, we need to get the correct information out, he said. We need experts to know how to properly communicate. CCHB chairwoman Debbie Ressler said Nemzoff will hire out a public relations person who will answer to him. We are hiring Josh and the p.r. person will report to Josh and not to us, she said. The fee will kick in whenever we initiate the p.r. campaign. I dont know the entire scope of what that persons going to do. Trustees are hoping members of the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation join them in seeking a company to buy, lease or affiliate with the hospital. Hospital chief executive officer Ryan Beaty said he doesnt agree with Nemzoffs assertion that that the two boards are headed for a fight over the hospitals future. I have been in favor of finding the right relationship for this hospital for years, he said. I believe we need to look at sale, carefully. We need to look at lease. We need to look at other affiliations and it needs to be done in an organized fashion.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

He was 96. Jins death on Saturday leaves one of Chinas largest and wealthiest dioceses in a deeply unsettled state, underscoring continuing tensions generated by the ruling Communist Partys insistence on tightly controlling all organized religions. Jins first anointed successor as acting bishop, Joseph Xing Wenzhi, resigned last year for reasons still unclear, and his replacement, Thaddeus Ma Daqin, was placed under house arrest at Shanghais Sheshan Seminary after enraging party officials by renouncing his membership in the partycontrolled Catholic Patriotic Association. Born into a Catholic family in Shanghai in June 1916, Jin was ordained as a Jesuit priest in 1938 and spent several years studying in France, Germany, and other European nations. Returning to his native Shanghai in 1951, Jin was imprisoned for nearly two decades under Communist Chinas founder, Mao Zedong, who ordered Chinese Catholics to cut their ties with the Vatican and jailed hundreds of priests and nuns as counter-revolutionaries. Jin was paroled in 1972 and put to work as a translator based on his knowledge of several European languages. Following Maos death in 1976, he was formally released and named Shanghai bishop in 1988 by the Patriotic Association. China has an estimated 8 million to 12 million Catholics, around half of whom worship in congregations outside the control of the Patriotic Association.A6TUESDAY, APRIL30, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SO YOU KNOW The Citrus County Chronicles policy permits free and paid obituaries.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Urged to fix a mockery to justice, the Florida Senate passed legislation Monday to accelerate the states capital punishment process that was criticized for allowing some condemned inmates to languish for decades on death row. The Senate passed the bill 28-10, sending the measure to Gov. Rick Scott for his consideration. The House passed the Timely Justice Act of 2013 (HB 7083) by an 84-34 vote last week. The bill creates tighter timeframes for appeals, post-conviction motions and imposes reporting requirements on case progress. It also re-establishes a separate agency for north Florida to provide appellate-level legal representation to inmates sentenced to death, and requires them to pursue all possible remedies in state court. Supporters of the measure said Monday that numerous people have sat on Floridas death row for longer than 30 years. When someone sits on death row for 10, 20, 30 years, it really makes a mockery of our justice system, said Republican Sen. Rob Bradley. Its not fair to the victims families not only to be traumatized by the loss of a loved one, but then have to sit and suffer while justice is not realized year after year after year. Florida has 405 inmates on its death row, more than any other state except California. It takes an average of 13 years for an inmate to move from sentencing to execution. The bills critics worried that speeding up the process could condemn some innocent people to the ultimate punishment. Once the execution is over, theres no going back, said Demoocratic Sen. Maria Sachs. Opponents noted DNA evidence might be introduced that proves a condemned prisoners innocence.A8TUESDAY, APRIL30, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE Are you tired of getting a cheap come on price, only to be told that your hearing loss is too bad for the sale priced hearing aid to work?

Authorities are examining the state's highway safety building after the letter was discovered, forcing some 1,500 employees to evacuate. The letter was found Monday inside the state's highway safety building four miles east of the Florida Capitol. A Tallahassee Fire Department official said writing on an envelope found in the records office indicated anthrax was inside. But nothing was inside the envelope, which was addressed to the agency's executive director. Employees were told to return later Monday. State agency evacuated Senate OKs bill speeding up capital punishment Medicaid expansion reaches stalemate Associated PressTALLAHASSEE With just four days left in the Legislative session and neither the House nor Senate willing to concede, it seems the Medicaid expansion alternative is at a stalemate and may have to wait until next year, leaving rough 1.1 million eligible Floridians without health insurance. The Senate had been juggling two proposals for the past few weeks in hopes of reaching an agreement with the House, but on Monday senators squashed the proposal that mirrored the Houses plan with little fanfare and no debate. House Republicans have resisted accepting any money tied to President Obamas Affordable Care Act, saying it would only support the federal governments irresponsible spending pattern and voicing concerns that the federal government would not make good on a promise to pay 100 percent of the health care costs for the first three years and 90 percent after that. Instead, the House spent more than six hours last week debating and ultimately passing a bill that would use $237 million in state funds to provide health coverage for about 115,000 residents. The health plans would require a $25 monthly premium and likely have high deductibles, which Democrats said many families would not be able to afford. House Democrats criticized the bill as wholly inadequate, covering one-tenth as many people as the Senate bill.

US consumers keep spending despite higher taxesWASHINGTON This year got off to a sour start for U.S. workers: Their pay, already gasping to keep pace with inflation, suddenly shrank with a Social Security tax increase. That raised the worrisome question, would consumers stop spending and further slow the economy? Apparently, not yet. On Friday the government said consumers spent 3.2 percent more on an annual basis in the January-March quarter than in the previous quarter the biggest jump in two years. And in a report Monday, the government said consumers increased their spending in each month, by 0.2 percent in March, 0.7 percent in February and 0.3 percent in January.Google invades Siris turf with iPhone, iPad appSAN FRANCISCO Siri may be feeling a little job insecurity. The sometimes droll assistant that answers questions and helps people manage their lives on Apples iPhone and iPad is facing competition from an up-andcoming rival made by Google. The duel began Monday with the release of a free iPhone and iPad app that features Google Now, a technology that performs many of the same functions as Siri. Its the first time Google Now has been available on smartphones and tablet computers that arent running on the latest version of Googles Android software. The technology, which debuted nine months ago, is being included in an upgrade to Googles search application for iOS, the Apple Inc. software that powers the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Its up to a user to decide to activate Google Now within the redesigned Google Search app, which is available through Apples app store.Pending US home sales reach 3-year high in MarchWASHINGTON The number of Americans who signed contracts to buy homes rose in March to the highest level in three years, pointing to higher sales this spring. The National Association of Realtors said Monday that its seasonally adjusted index for pending home sales rose 1.5 percent to 105.7. Thats the highest since April 2010, when a homebuyers tax credit boosted sales. Its also above Februarys reading of 104.1. There is generally a one-to-two-month lag between a signed contract and a completed sale. Contract signings rose in the South, West and Midwest, and were unchanged in the Northeast.Chrysler profit falls 65 percent on lower shipmentsDETROIT Chryslers first-quarter profit tumbled 65 percent as shipments of cars and trucks fell while it prepared factories to launch several key new vehicles. The Auburn Hills, Mich., company said Monday it earned $166 million in the JanuaryMarch quarter, compared with $473 million a year ago. Revenue fell 6 percent to $15.4 billion. Chrysler, which is majority-owned by Italys Fiat SpA, said worldwide vehicle shipments fell 6 percent during the quarter to 574,000.Express Scripts profit up 39 percentST. LOUIS Express Scripts says its firstquarter earnings jumped 39 percent compared to last year, when charges tied to its acquisition of competitor Medco Health Solutions hurt the largest U.S. pharmacy benefit managers performance. The acquisition more than doubled Express Scripts revenue in the quarter, more than offsetting higher operating costs for the combined company. Express Scripts made $373 million, or 45 cents per share, in the quarter, up from $267.8 million, or 55 cents per share, a year earlier. Excluding one-time charges, profit was 99 cents per share.JC Penney to get $1.75 billion in financingPLANO, Texas J.C. Penney on Monday confirmed that Goldman Sachs will provide it with $1.75 billion in financing.

The stock market has recovered all the ground it lost over the previous two weeks, when worries over slower economic growth, falling commodity prices and disappointing quarterly earnings battered financial markets. The S&P 500 index rose 11.37 points to close at 1,593.61. The 0.7 percent increase nudged the index above its previous closing high of 1,593.36, reached on April 11. The market has had a terrific run, said Philip Orlando, chief equity strategist at Federated Investors, noting that the S&P 500 is up 12 percent since the start of 2013. At the beginning of the year, I thought we were going to 1,660 (for the whole year). Were only about 5 percent from that. A pair of better economic reports gave investors some encouragement. Wages and spending rose in the U.S. last month, and pending home sales hit their highest level in three years. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 106.20 points to 14,818.75, up 0.7 percent. Microsoft and IBM were among the Dows best performers, rising more than 2 percent each. IBM, which rose $4.84 to $199.15, accounted for a third of the Dows increase. The index is just 46 points below its own record high of 14,865 reached on April 11. Techs popularity Monday was a change from earlier this month, when it lagged the rest of the market. Concerns about weak business spending and slower overseas sales have cast a shadow over big tech firms, said Marty Leclerc, the managing partner of Barrack Yard Advisors, an investment firm in Bryn Mawr, Pa. Revenue misses from IBM and other big tech companies have highlighted the industrys vulnerability to the world economy. But Leclerc thinks tech companies with steady revenue and plenty of cash look appealing over the long term. Information technology stocks rose the most of the 10 industry groups in the S&P 500 on Monday, up 1.6 percent. Its the only group that remains lower over the past year, down 2 percent, versus the S&P 500s gain of 14 percent. Federateds Orlando thinks tech stocks could continue to rally as investors shift money from companies that pay big dividends and have rallied recently utilities, healthcare and consumer staples. Theyve been buying these companies, but four months into this year theyve gotten expensive, Orlando said. The Nasdaq composite rose 27.76 points to 3,307.02, an increase of 0.9 percent. Apple, the biggest stock in the index, surged 3 percent, or $12.92, to $430.12. The Nasdaq remains far below its record closing high of 5,048.62, hit March 10, 2000, before the dotcom bubble popped.

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, APRIL 30, 2013 The Golden RuleThe religious and social differences that divide America are not, as Jimmy Carter once thought, a sign of malaise, but of a healthy and vigorous free society. In debate, as in life, patience often wins when all else fails. At a time when even recent college graduates cannot find work, skilled tradesmen and tradeswomen who have been laid off are advised to go back to school. The fine gentleman who started the ball rolling on that one should go back to school himself. Moral issues often take top stage, especially abortion and gay rights. Whether rightly or wrongly, one side or the other will eventually prevail. That being said, I do not think this is a good time to be sweeping important issues under the rug. It is better for the country if we openly and freely discuss our mutual problems before we are overwhelmed by them. This country has no lack of smart people whose talents are sorely needed by our country. But they are humble folk who dont puff themselves up and so they dont get elected to public office. The kind we do elect are bumblers without their teleprompter. When John McCain was running for president, he assured everyone he knew how to win wars. That has to be the dumbest, most idiotic and utterly worthless pronouncement anyone could ever make. History is filled with the dead bodies of thousands of imbeciles who thought the same thing of themselves. Just in my lifetime we have had Hitler and Stalin, Lyndon Johnson, George Bush, Dick Cheney and his sidekick, the stumbling, bungling, Donald Rumsfeld. I am not naive. I recognize bad things happen every day in the world. It may be a long, long time before the economy fully recovers. There is much hardship even here in Citrus County. Meanwhile, we should not depend on the government to do everything for us. We are all in this together, and we can all make things a little better today if we follow the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you want them to do unto you.Franklin Aretz Beverly HillsHow far is too far?I doubt anyone likes other people spending their money. You bring your car to a shop for a tune up and you get a new set of tires as well and $400 added to your bill. Thats actually how government works and citizens try to elect those they trust to spend their money wisely. Citrus County has gone one step further. The leaders have decided its OK to remove your most important resource and give it away whether you like it or not. That would be our water. Your use is restricted but they are free to take as much as they want and sell it or give it away. How can that possibly be OK with anyone?Fred Schirmer Inverness DOUGLASCOHNANDELEANORCLIFTWASHINGTONIts always risky to try to understand the mindset of a politician, but one truism that generally bears out in public life, is that once an elected official decides not to run again, he or she is freed of political constraints and can vote in the national interest. That proposition is sorely tested in the aftermath of Montana Democrat Max Baucus announcement this is his last term in the Senate, and he will not run for reelection in 2014 when his current six-year term ends. At 71, he said he wants to see what more there is to life beyond serving in Congress. He was first elected to the House in 1974, and then to the Senate in 1978, so he will have put in 40 years of public service, the last 20 either as chair or ranking member on the powerful Senate Finance Committee. His retirement is understandable after all those years, but the timing is puzzling. Baucus was one of four Democrats who voted against the background checks bill on guns, citing the sign on his desk that says Montana First, saying he was voting the interests of his constituents. Except even in Montana, a frontier state where gun rights are paramount, polls show that 79 percent of Montanans support background checks. When Baucus voted against the wishes of a majority of his constituents, the assumption was that he was acting in accordance with his reelection prospects. The National Rifle Association and its allies bring more passion to the issue of gun rights than folks who advocate for gun safety, so Baucus did what he had to, said all the sages in Washington. Then just days later, Baucus said he wouldnt be running again, so why couldnt he step up and support background checks? One theory is he miscalculated, that the backlash to his vote was so swift and sure he realized he would face a primary challenge from a gun safety proponent, and he didnt want to go through that. Indeed, popular former Gov. Brian Schweitzer lost no time declaring his interest in the Senate seat once Baucus had taken himself out of the race, and its possible that Baucus would have had a tough primary fight on his hands. Others give Baucus a pass, saying hes a true believer when it comes to guns, but history doesnt bear that out. Baucus voted for the assault weapons ban in 1994, a far more aggressive bill than the modest one he just opposed. After that vote, Baucus won with a narrower margin than he was accustomed to, and that could have scared him off this time. Still, he must have been mulling his decision to retire for some time, and if he knew that was the direction he was heading, why couldnt he have supported a bill that in all likelihood he is for? It was his one chance to become a statesman or maybe not. Based on what Baucus has said in subsequent interviews, he sees another route to becoming a statesman, and it is through the tax code. Over the next year, he will work to craft a tax overhaul that he believes will be his legacy, and the fact that he will never be a candidate again might boost his credibility in getting that done. As for guns, we may never know whether his misfire on background checks factored into his decision to step aside, but voting with the NRA is no longer a free vote. Groups on the other side are getting in the game, and vulnerable Democrats as well as Republicans will feel their ire. Harry Truman is credited with saying, If you cant stand the heat, get out of the kitchen. Maybe the heat was turned up just enough for Baucus to get out of the kitchen.Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift author the Washington MerryGo-Round column, founded in 1932 by Drew Pearson.

Scott signed sweeping education reform that brings a little more common sense to the classroom for Florida high school students. The legislation takes a step back from some of the rigid standards adopted by the Legislature during the last decade. Those rigid standards if enforced would have made it more difficult for students at all levels to earn a high school diploma and driven up the states dropout rate. The new rules also remove the stipulation that passing the final exam in certain courses is mandated for graduation. The new legislation recognizes students in Florida have different expectations from the public school system. Three types of high school diplomas were created for students, thus recognizing young people go in different directions after graduation. The standard diploma requires a student take 24 credit hours and pass standardized exams in language arts and algebra. A diploma with a scholar designation would require the standard achievements plus one college level course, two credits in a foreign language and passing year-end exams in algebra II, biology and history. This would be the direction college-bound students would follow. A diploma with a merit designation would require the standard achievements plus earning industry certification in one or more technical fields. The new legislation recognizes that we cant have a one-size-fits-all education system. Not every student in Florida needs or wants to go to college. For those who want to attend the university, the academic requirements should be stiff on the traditional math, science and language skills. But many Florida students are more interested in pursuing a technical education directed toward the job market. Under the new rules, the students will have the time to earn certification in a given field and still have the honor of earning a high school diploma. Gov. Scott showed he is growing with the job by getting input from students, parents and educators before taking a stand against the reforms. Once he got that input, he realized that his path is the best for Floridas high school students. THE ISSUE:Education reform.OUR OPINION:Legislation will help.

According to a column in the April 14 Tampa Bay Times a study by the Citizens for Tax Justice, 30 U.S. corporations actually paid no federal taxes. Many including Duke, to the tune of 3.5 percent enjoyed a negative federal income tax rate due to tax loopholes. Other examples are General Electric, Wells Fargo and DuPont. While these companies turn over tremendous profits, they pay no federal taxes. Their tax burden is shifted to us, the average Joe Taxpayer. Its tough to feel any sympathy for an electric utility that dodges federal and local taxes, still makes profits, and makes us, the consumer, pay their share of both local and federal taxes. Then they also expect us to pay for a nuclear plant in Levy County that they may never build.DJ in locker roomIm watching the Tampa Bay Rays ballgame and they talk about a DJ in the locker room. What does that mean? What does the DJ in the locker room do? I sure would like to know.Editors note: Rays Manager Joe Maddon often brings in entertainment acts to keep the team loose before games. He recently brought in a disc jockey (DJ) to play music and a magician to perform tricks for the team.Better off in PhillyThis is for the article on the rudeness and I want to talk to Miss Manners. Does she realize the rude people are not from here I repeat, not Southerners? We have no problem with driving and manners until the transplants arrive. Youd probably be better off in Philadelphia.Driving a wedgeAll Ive got to say is, after reading Leonard Pitts article in todays Chronicle (April 22), he does nothing but try to separate the whites and the blacks. He constantly knocks the GOP. Most of the GOP, not all, but then theres not all the Democrats either, because what they say and what they do are like two different things. The Republicans have helped the blacks more than anyone and all he does is try to put a wedge between.Absent from votingI was reading the Monday (April 22) Chronicle in the section of How our Lawmakers Voted and I notice that our Congressman Nugent didnt vote on any item there. I think we pay them to at least vote whether we agree or disagree with their votes. He seems to be absent in action.

Support your local mallAs a small business owner, I and many of us adopted the buy local mentality that has been sweeping the nation in a justified effort to keep our hard-earned (and much needed) money within our communities. Of course, we all want to support Citrus Countybased businesses; however, Ive come to find the purchasing decisions we make dont always reflect this approach. This is the case with our local and only Citrus County Mall located in Crystal River. There are countless benefits to working with local stores and vendors, and Id like to challenge our business community to buy local and employ the various services and retail providers to make a real difference within our county and with your local mall. As decision makers, we need to go beyond paying lip service to the buy local philosophy and start making it a priority. This might be easier to say than implement, but its worth doing, and heres why:Money stays in the community. Most money spent outside of Citrus County wont come back thus we need to band together to create a cycle of support for local businesses. Additionally, thriving businesses contribute to local nonprofits, many of which are in great need of extra funding.Support local jobs. Were all painfully aware of Citrus Countys 13 percent-plus unemployment rate, and supporting locally owned businesses creates more local jobs. We just had one black eye applied to us that will affect our employment rate in the future; we dont need the second eye blackened by closing more stores in the mall or elsewhere within Citrus County.Support local decision making. Supporting locally owned businesses ensures important decisions are made by people who live in the community by people who will feel the impacts of those decisions.Support product diversity. A multitude of small businesses develop products based on the needs of their local customers, not a national sales plan, which generates a much broader range of product choices. With your support for local businesses, we can continue to offer the product choices available in our community that makes it unique, whether it is a local farmers market or the mall. Im asked by locals every day, How long have you been at the mall? They seemed shocked when I tell them we moved into the mall last October. Local shops cant make it unless the community (and our local merchant governing organizations and municipalities) are willing to support the merchants within the county and within your one and only mall. Yes, there are some vacancies in the mall, and management is making great strides to fill those vacancies at a great lease rate. Just talk to them.If you are looking to start a business: Make a decision to be part of a Merchant Village, the Crystal River Mall.For your shopping needs, make a decision to support local businesses, whether it be the mall or any other business centers in Citrus County.Roger Osborne, independent retailer All About Nature Crystal River MallPlease dont block progressMr. Rose: The city of Crystal River has received inquiries from the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) regarding the potential impact on pending Coastal Partnership Initiative (CPI) funding that would support the current lyngbya harvesting efforts as a result of the various issues your organization has raised with respect to that harvesting program. The indication is that the CPI funding could be delayed by a year or lost altogether as a result of concerns that have been brought to NOAAs attention regarding potential delays in the permitting of this project. The effort to clean Kings Bay of lyngbya enjoys widespread community support, and it is disappointing funding to support that effort could be adversely impacted as a result of your organizations effort to restrict the harvesting program. It would seem all parties could put aside differences of opinion in other areas and work cooperatively on the goal of cleaning Kings Bay of a noxious algae such as lyngbya, the control of which can only improve the water quality of Kings Bay and help provide a more sustainable food supply for manatees to aid in their protection. I urge you to work with our community to move the harvesting project forward rather than blocking the projects progress.Mike Gudis, vice mayor City of Crystal RiverOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, APRIL30, 2013 A11 000EPE3 000EOYQ Visit Us $ 5 99 INSTALLED.

Associated PressNEW YORK They sweep. They swab. They sterilize. And still the germs persist. In U.S. hospitals, an estimated 1 in 20 patients pick up infections they didnt have when they arrived, some caused by dangerous superbugs that are hard to treat. The rise of these superbugs, along with increased pressure from the government and insurers, is driving hospitals to try all sorts of new approaches to stop their spread: Machines that resemble Star Wars robots and emit ultraviolet light or hydrogen peroxide vapors. Germresistant copper bed rails, call buttons and IV poles. Antimicrobial linens, curtains and wall paint. While these products can help get a room clean, their true impact is still debatable. There is no widely-accepted evidence that these inventions have prevented infections or deaths. Those hospital infections are tied to an estimated 100,000 deaths each year and add as much as $30 billion a year in medical costs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency last month sounded an alarm about a nightmare bacteria resistant to one class of antibiotics. That kind is still rare but it showed up last year in at least 200 hospitals. Complicating matters is the fact that larger proportions of hospital patients today are sicker and more susceptible to the ravages of infections, said Dr. Marisa Montecalvo, a contagious diseases specialist at Westchester. Theres a growing recognition that its not only surgical knives and operating rooms that need a thorough cleaning but also spots like bed rails and even television remote controls, she said. Now theres more attention to making sure that all the nooks and crannies are clean, and that its done in as perfect a manner as can be done, Montecalvo said. Enter companies like Xenex Healthcare Services, a San Antonio company that makes a portable, $125,000 machine thats rolled into rooms to zap Cdiff and other bacteria and viruses dead with ultraviolet light. Xenex has sold or leased devices to more than 100 U.S. hospitals, including Westchester Medical Center. The market niche is expected to grow from $30 million to $80 million in the next three years, according to Frost & Sullivan, a market research firm. Mark Stibich, Xenexs chief scientific officer, said client hospitals sometimes call them robots and report improved satisfaction scores from patients who seem impressed that the medical center is trotting out that kind of technology. Some experts say theres not enough evidence to show the machines are worth it. No national study has shown that these products have led to reduced deaths or infection rates, noted Dr. L. Clifford McDonald of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His point: It only takes a minute for a nurse or visitor with dirty hands to walk into a room, touch a vulnerable patient with germy hands, and undo the benefits of a recent space-age cleaning.

The Albuquerque man accused of stabbing four churchgoers during Sunday Mass told police he was after the choir leader because he thought the man was a Mason. According to a criminal complaint, 24-year-old Lawrence Capener said he was going after the choir leader at St. Jude Thaddeus Catholic Church because his speech was different and he was 99 percent sure he was a Mason. Capener said he stabbed others who tried to subdue him because he thought they might be Masons, too.Iraq war resister court-martialFORT CARSON, Colo. A court-martial got under way Monday for the first female U.S. Army soldier to flee to Canada to avoid a second tour of duty in the Iraq war. Army Pfc. Kimberly Rivera is charged with desertion and could face up to five years in prison and a dishonorable discharge if convicted. Rivera, 30, was a wheeled-vehicle driver in Fort Carsons 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team and served in Iraq in 2006. She has said that, while there, she became disillusioned with the U.S. mission in Iraq. During a two-week leave in the U.S. in 2007, Rivera crossed the Canadian border after she was ordered to serve another tour in Iraq. She applied for refugee status but was denied. Rivera was first ordered to leave Canada or face deportation in 2009, but she appealed that decision. The mother of four faced another deportation order issued in 2012. She was arrested at the U.S. border and taken into military custody.Brief hearing held in letters caseOXFORD, Miss.

Dutschkes arrest early Saturday capped a week in which investigators initially zeroed in on a rival of Dutschkes, then decided they had the wrong man. Dutschke has denied involvement in the mailing of the letters, saying hes a patriot with no grudges against anyone.

Mohammed Sohel Rana, who was arrested Sunday as he tried to flee to India, will be held for questioning on charges of negligence, illegal construction and forcing workers to join work. His father, Abdul Khaleque, was also arrested on suspicion of aiding Rana to force people to work in a dangerous building.

The bombing, which killed several other people, highlights an accelerating campaign targeting government officials, from midlevel civil servants to the highest echelons of the Syrian regime. State television said Prime Minister Wael alHalqi was not hurt in the bombing, which struck his convoy as it drove through the posh Mazzeh neighborhood. The attack on al-Halqi punctuated a series of attacks on government officials in recent weeks. On April 18, gunmen shot dead the head of public relations at the Ministry of Social Affairs while he dined at a Mazzeh restaurant. A day later, a Syrian army colonel was killed in Damascus, and five days after that a bomb killed an official from the Electricity Ministry.Blast injures at least 35 in PraguePRAGUE A powerful blast believed to be a gas explosion ripped open an office building in the center of Prague on Monday, injuring at least 35 people and sending shockwaves through the Old Town tourist district.

Authorities said two or three people were still believed to be missing, but sniffer dogs searching the rubble had not indicated that anyone was buried and the prime minister said it appeared no one had died.

US loans from China at issue America holds bulk of national debt Associated PressWASHINGTON Despite what you may have heard, China isnt the countrys biggest creditor. America is. The bulk of the national debt soon to exceed a staggering $17 trillion is held by the Federal Reserve, Social Security system, various pension plans for civil service workers and military personnel, U.S. banks, mutual funds, private pension plans, insurance companies and individual domestic investors. China is responsible for just a shade more than 7 percent of that total debt. And while it remains the single largest foreign lender (just ahead of Japan), Chinas been slowly trimming its holdings, down from nearly 10 percent a few years ago. Overall, all foreign investors including national central banks account for roughly one third of the total outstanding federal government debt. Also, China is suddenly having debt problems of its own. Heavy recent lending by its banks comes as the recovery in the worlds second-largest economy seems to be stalling. The export giant posted a rare trade deficit in March. The national debt will soon be front-and-center again as a deeply divided Congress wrestles with an expected new Obama administration request to increase the governments borrowing authority, the legislatively set debt ceiling. The higher limit would not authorize borrowing for new spending but just enables the government to pay all the bills already racked up. Theres a huge misconception here. The guy on the street thinks that were up to our ears in indebtedness to China. And it is a large absolute amount. But the public holds a lot more, said Nicholas R. Lardy, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. And the politicians have not done anything to try to have a more reasonable conversation about this. China holds just $1.22 trillion in U.S. Treasury bonds and bills, or 7.3 percent of the current $16.88 trillion total national debt, according to the Treasury Departments Major Foreign Holders of Treasury Securities for February, the most recent month available. China also holds about $200 billion in long-term securities of U.S. agencies, including bonds of nationalized mortgage holders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, although it has been steadily trimming these holdings since 2008. Social Security holds $2.7 trillion of the debt in its trust fund, in the form of special unmarketable Treasury bonds. The Federal Reserve holds a $1.7 trillion portfolio of Treasury notes and bonds, much of it accumulated over the past four years with its heavy purchase of U.S. securities to stimulate the economy and hold down interest rates. Together, Social Security and the Fed are holding over 25 percent of the total debt. Stunning view of hurricane on Saturn Germ-zapping robots put to use

Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. D. Wayne Lukas and Gary Stevens know what its like hearing the roar of the crowd and inhaling the intoxicating scent from dozens of red roses in the Kentucky Derby winners circle. At their advanced ages, they want to feel it all again. On Saturday, theyll make another run at winning Americas greatest race, and if experience counts, this duo might have an edge. Lukas and Stevens are teaming with Oxbow, while the trainer considered the sports elder statesman also will saddle Will Take Charge. The colts will be Lukas 46th and 47th Derby starters, the most of any trainer in the races 138-year history. He has won it four times, but not since 1999. I dont feel any different than when I came in here at 50. Theres still the adrenaline rush. Theres still the enthusiasm, Lukas said. The horse is the most important ingredient. You better have the horse and then some luck. Stevens has ridden in 18 Derbies and won three times, including twice with Lukas 1988 aboard the filly Winning Colors and 1995 with Thunder Gulch. The 50-year-old jockey is four months into a comeback after being retired for seven years. At 77, Lukas would be the oldest trainer to win the Derby. The karma is good between us, Lukas said. The experience factor for me is so big here. With 20-horse fields, having been there and won, it makes a huge difference for me. Im going to be comfortable and not worry about it. Stevens considers Lukas to be a second father, while the trainers only son, Jeff, is like a brother. Theres definitely a mutual respect, the jockey said. Were both highly motivated. We havent lost our need for big moments. Wayne is able to transmit that enthusiasm level to his whole team. Ive been part of the team for a long time. Stevens resumed riding in early January, the same week he got a call from Lukas advising him that the trainer had a couple of promising 3-year-old colts who could make the Derby. I was kind of thinking, Yeah right, wouldnt that be great, and here we are, said Stevens, who juggles his duties as a racing TV commentator with his riding commitments. He had quit in 2005, driven out by unrelenting knee pain that had him downing anti-inflammatories every day for the previous 15 years. Stevens battled his weight, too, during the final five years he was riding. In retirement, he ballooned to 134 pounds huge for a jockey. Once he decided to mount a comeback, he hired a personal trainer, a nutritionist and a sports psychologist. Now hes down to 113 pounds, and is mentally relieved knowing that he doesnt have to sweat off extra pounds. I couldnt feel better, he said.

The New York Jets waived Tebow on Monday. Football future in doubt for former Gator standout Associated PressNEW YORK The possibilities appeared endless for Tim Tebow. Here he was, perhaps the most popular player in the NFL, in New York as a member of the Jets and maybe the biggest thing to hit Broadway since Joe Namath himself. There were billboards outside the Lincoln Tunnel in New Jersey welcoming Tebow, and sandwiches named after him at Manhattan delis. He also had a legion of fans who followed him because of his strong Christian beliefs, and in New York, he would be able to take advantage of countless media and marketing opportunities. And then, it all went terribly wrong. Or, more like it, the whole idea was completely flawed from the start. For Tebow. And for the Jets. Tebow was waived Monday morning, the end of an embarrassingly unsuccessful one-season experiment in New York that produced more hype and headlines than production on the field. And it all ended quietly, with a three-paragraph news release. Unfortunately, coach Rex Ryan said in a statement, things did not work out the way we all had hoped. It also left Tebows football future very much in doubt. A year after he threw a TD pass to win a playoff game in overtime for Denver, the Heisman Trophy winner with two college national titles at Florida and a nationwide following may have suited up for the last time. No NFL team has made a pitch to get him. The only nibble so far came from the Montreal Alouettes. They hold his rights in the Canadian Football League and said he could compete for a job as a backup. This is the same guy who led the Broncos to the postseason in 2011, but became expendable when Denver signed Peyton Manning as a free agent. The popular backup quarterback was acquired by the Jets in March 2012 for a fourthround draft pick and $1.5 million in salary. He was introduced at the Tebow Time in NY over after Jets cut QB See TEBOW/ Page B3 Senate gives ok to pro teams Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Miami Dolphins and other professional sports teams in the state are moving closer to their goal of getting taxpayer help to pay for new stadiums and renovations. With time running out during this years session, the Florida Senate voted on Monday in favor of a bill that would allow the Dolphins and other franchises to compete for state money. The vote, which came despite the opposition of Senate President Don Gaetz, sets the stage for the Dolphins to rally from what appeared to be a looming defeat in the Legislature. The Dolphins were aided by a last-minute lobbying blitz by National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell and Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. The two men sat in the Senate gallery and watched as the measure was debated and then approved by a 35-4 vote. Goodell stopped short of promising that the planned $400 million worth of renovations to Sun Life Stadium would help South Florida win the right to host a Super Bowl. But he said it would dramatically improve chances for Miami. NFL owners are supposed to announce locations for the 2016 and 2017 Super Bowls in May. The Dolphins want $3 million a year for 30 years to help pay for renovations. They are also seeking legislation to let Miami-Dade County raise local hotel bed taxes to also pay for the project. Miami-Dade voters are scheduled to vote May 14 on a referendum that increases the local taxes. Early voting started this week. But the measure (SB 306) passed by the Senate would not apply to just the Dolphins. It would require any professional sports franchise seeking money to submit applications which would then be ranked by the state. Others who have been in Tallahassee seeking help this year include the Jacksonville Jaguars, Daytona International Speedway and the city of Orlando. Orlando wants help to build a new stadium to house a Major League Soccer team. NBA veteran center Jason Collins comes out as gay First active player in four major US sports Associated PressWASHINGTON With the simplest of sentences, NBA veteran Jason Collins set aside years of worry and silence to become the first active player in one of four major U.S. professional sports leagues to come out as gay. In a first-person article posted Monday on Sports Illustrateds website, Collins begins: Im a 34-year-old NBA center. Im black. And Im gay. Collins has played for six teams in 12 seasons, most recently as a reserve with the Washington Wizards after a midseason trade from the Boston Celtics. He is now a free agent and wants to keep playing in the NBA. I didnt set out to be the first openly gay athlete playing in a major American team sport. But since I am, Im happy to start the conversation. I wish I wasnt the kid in the classroom raising his hand and saying, Im different, Collins writes. If I had my way, someone else would have already done this. Nobody has, which is why Im raising my hand. Saying he had endured years of misery and gone to enormous lengths to live a lie, Collins immediately drew support for his announcement from the White House, former President Bill Clinton, the NBA, current and former teammates, and athletes in other sports. Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant tweeted he was proud of Collins, writing: Dont suffocate who u r because of the ignorance of others, followed by the words courage and support. Weve got to get rid of the shame. Thats the main thing. And Jasons going to help that. Hes going to help give people courage to come out, said Billie Jean King, a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame who confirmed she was gay after being outed in the early 1980s. I guarantee you hes going to feel much lighter, much freer. The truth does set you free, theres no question. It doesnt mean its easy. But it sets you free, King said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

B2TUESDAY, APRIL30, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMAJORLEAGUEBASEBALL Associated PressNEW YORK Carlos Corporan homered among his four hits and drove in four runs, Brandon Barnes had three hits and three RBIs, and the Houston Astros fit comfortably into the role of a slugging American League squad Monday night in a 9-1 romp over the New York Yankees. In their first game in the Bronx as an AL team, the Astros peppered Andy Pettitte for 10 hits and seven runs, both season highs for the lefty. Barnes and Corporan had two-run doubles and Barnes added an RBI single and a double. Barnes and Corporan each set career highs for hits and RBIs. Houston bounced back from a four-game sweep in Boston with an enthusiastic win over the Yankees, who had just taken four straight from Toronto. Lucas Harrell (3-2) kept New York grounded.AMERICAN LEAGUE Tigers 4, Twins 3DETROIT Prince Fielders towering three-run homer in the sixth inning put Detroit ahead, and the Tigers held on for their fourth straight win, 4-3 over the Minnesota Twins. Detroit trailed 3-1 when Andy Dirks reached on a bunt single and Miguel Cabrera walked. Fielder hit the first pitch over the wall in left-center for an opposite-field homer. That part of the fence is about 405 feet from home plate. Max Scherzer (3-0) allowed three runs and six hits in 7 1/3 innings. He struck out 10 without a walk. Drew Smyly finished the eighth and got the first two outs of the ninth, and Joaquin Benoit finished for his second save. Mike Pelfrey (2-3) allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.Indians 9, Royals 0KANSAS CITY, Mo. Ubaldo Jimenez pitched into the eighth inning, Ryan Raburn hit two home runs and the Cleveland Indians pounded the Kansas City Royals 9-0 to split their four-game series. Raburn hit a three-run shot in the fifth inning and a solo homer in the eighth, and finished the night with four hits. Jason Kipnis also went deep to pace a suddenly potent Indians offense. Not that all the offense was needed. Jimenez (1-2) allowed only two walks and an infield single by Billy Butler over his first seven innings. Otherwise, he kept the Royals off balance in a dazzling start that brought back memories of the pitcher who once threw a no-hitter for the Colorado Rockies. Meanwhile, Wade Davis (2-2) made a second straight miserable start for the Royals. The right-hander allowed eight runs and 12 hits and three walks in just 4 2/3 innings.NATIONAL LEAGUE Braves 3, Nationals 2ATLANTA Andrelton Simmons hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the seventh inning, then made an eyepopping play to start the ninth as the Atlanta Braves beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 and ended their fourgame losing streak. Atlanta beat the Nationals for the eighth straight time dating to last season. The Braves swept three games at Washington earlier this month. Washingtons Stephen Strasburg ended his career-worst streak of losses in four straight starts. He allowed two runs in six innings. Ian Desmond led off the ninth with a slow grounder that Simmons charged. The Atlanta shortstop slipped as he fielded the ball and fell on his backside, but somehow fired a strike to first base from the seat of his pants. Desmond was called out on a close play, and disagreed with the decision.Brewers 10, Pirates 4MILWAUKEE Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo hit one of five home runs for Milwaukee, which went backto-back twice in a 10-4 rout of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Gallardo also tossed three-hit ball over seven innings, retiring his final 13 batters while improving to 10-2 against Pittsburgh. He and Norichika Aoki hit consecutive homers in the fourth before Carlos Gomez and Yuniesky Betancourt repeated the feat in the fifth. Jean Segura also connected for the Brewers, who added three triples and matched a season high for runs. Gallardo (3-1) gave up two runs, one earned. He struck out five and walked two.Reds 2, Cardinals 1ST. LOUIS Mat Latos outpitched Adam Wainwright, extending his scoreless innings streak to 17, and the Cincinnati Reds got an RBI apiece from Joey Votto and Xavier Paul in a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Aroldis Chapman worked a perfect ninth for his sixth save in six chances. Yadier Molina had an RBI double off Jonathan Broxton that produced the Cardinals first run in 17 innings. Wainwright (4-2) trailed just six pitches in after Shin-soo Choo doubled on his first offering, advanced on a sacrifice and scored on Vottos single. Over his final six innings, the right-hander gave up three hits and one run. Wainwright walked two, one intentionally, after issuing just one in 37 1/3 innings his first five starts. Latos (2-0) worked around five hits and three walks in his sixth quality start in as many outings this season.Cubs 5, Padres 3CHICAGO Darwin Barney and Cody Ransom each drove in two runs and the Chicago Cubs defeated the San Diego Padres 5-3. Barney hit a pair of RBI doubles as he went 2-for-3 and Ransom went 2-for-4 with a home run. Both players also made nice defensive plays in the seventh with men in scoring position to preserve the Cubs lead. Kevin Gregg got the final out of the eighth with men on second and third and worked a perfect ninth to get his fourth save. After a 5-13 start to the season, the Cubs have won five of seven. San Diegos Clayton Richard (0-3) gave up five runs and seven hits, including two home runs, in 5 2/3 innings. Everth Cabrera went 3 for 4 and scored two runs.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE The rankings would then be submitted back to the Legislature for approval. Sen. Rene Garcia, R-Hialeah, argued against the bill, saying it was wrong to give help to millionaires and billionaires at a time when legislators cant agree to draw down federal aid to provide health insurance to the states poor. Dolphins owner Ross countered Garcias criticisms. He said afterward he would still wind up footing most of the bill for the stadium upgrades and that the effort would ultimately help the community. The team has also agreed to reimburse most of the state money back after a 30-year period. Gaetz said he voted against the bill because the final version removed the repeal of a tax credit now enjoyed by banks in the state. Gaetz had initially pushed for the end of the tax credit as a way to pay for the millions that will now go to sports teams. Lawmakers are scheduled to end their annual session on May 3. The bill heads next to the Florida House but House Speaker Will Weatherford, RWesley Chapel, on Monday praised the latest version of the bill because it creates a process for approving pro sports incentives. Florida Gov. Rick Scott has previously stated he could support incentives for sports team as long as it includes certain protections for the state. They include requiring local governments and to team owners provide matching money for any stadium upgrades Retired Hall of Fame rider Pat Day bumped into Stevens outside Lukas barn at Churchill Downs and told him, Youre looking good. Lukas thinks so, too. Ive seen him with his shirt off, he said. The weight doesnt seem to be a factor. Stevens is the seventh different jockey to ride Oxbow, who is 2 for 9 in his short career. He was aboard for the first time in the Arkansas Derby, where the colt finished fifth, teaching his rider a valuable lesson about lagging behind too long. He doesnt want to be taken ahold of and come from behind, said Stevens, who unsuccessfully tried to weave Oxbow through traffic. Hes a free-running horse. Lukas might have dumped a less seasoned rider, but he and Stevens have been through too much together. He gives a horse a chance to win. You get riders that dont give you a chance to win a lot of times, Lukas said. The good ones all do that. Thats all you can ask. Lukas likes Oxbows high-cruising rate and high energy level. Hes a tough cookie and he runs that way, he said. Hes so competitive. So are the two wily veterans, whose lined faces give away their years spent chasing victories at the racetrack. Another Derby victory would boost both Lukas and Stevens in the record book. Lukas would break a tie for second with Herbert Derby Dick Thompson, who also won four. Ben Jones holds the record with six wins. Stevens would tie the late Hall of Famer Bill Shoemaker for second with his fourth win. Oxbow is owned by legendary Calumet Farm, home to two Triple Crown champions, a record eight Derby winners, and both Ben Jones and two-time Derby-winning trainer Jimmy Jones. Wouldnt this be something if Calumet could win another one? marveled Stevens. It would be big for the reunited Hall of Fame trainer and jockey, too. I dont just want to go out there and ride around, Stevens said. I want to get my picture taken. Jets facility to plenty of fanfare at a lavish news conference, with Tebow repeatedly saying he was excited to be in New York. It turned out to be one of the few high points in Tebows stay with the Jets. Along with his shirtless jog from the practice field in the rain during training camp, of course. The Jets never figured out a way to use Tebow effectively, and he never forced the issue by being a good enough player in practice to make Ryan and his coaches put him on the field more in games. If he were to happen to call me, I would say, Look, youre starting over, former NFL GM Ted Sundquist said. Tim Tebow needs to redefine who Tim Tebow is, in my opinion. Hes no longer a first-round quarterback. Even recently retired Jets special teams coordinator Mike Westhoff labeled the way the team used Tebow an absolute mess. It all cost Tebow his job, along with former general manager Mike Tannenbaum and former offensive coordinator Tony Sparano both fired in part because of their roles in what was one of the NFLs messiest quarterback situations in recent memory. It also seriously clouds Tebows NFL future, which might be extended only, in some peoples opinion, if he considers a position change. I dont see any team giving him a chance because teams dont want to deal with the following that comes with Tebow, ESPN analyst and former NFL offensive lineman Damien Woody said. Maybe Canada. Tebow was brought to New York to be a dynamic addition to the offense, a complement to Mark Sanchez and a merchandising touchdown for the Jets. Instead, he attempted just eight passes for 39 yards and rushed 32 times for 102 yards and stunningly had no touchdowns. Through it all, Tebow tried to hide his frustration, but acknowledged late in the season that things didnt turn out quite how he expected in New York. I think its fair to say, Tebow said, that Im a little disappointed. Its an amazing fall for a player whose No. 15 Broncos jersey ranked second in national sales to Green Bays Aaron Rodgers in 2011. He seems like a great kid, Sundquist said, and it seems like he could bring some positives to a club if he can just bury this whole thing about him being in your quarterback mix and just let him be No. 39 on your roster, one of your back-end guys who can go somewhere and help you win. The Jets and new general manager John Idzik drafted former West Virginia star Geno Smith in the second round of the NFL draft Friday, giving New York six quarterbacks on its roster and creating uncertainty about Sanchezs future as well. Tebow, who dropped about 15 pounds in the last few months, arrived at the teams facility in Florham Park, N.J., early Monday and was told he had been cut. Tim is an extremely hard worker, evident by the shape he came back in this offseason, Ryan said. We wish him the best moving forward.

Trestman worked with Tebow at the Senior Bowl and before the NFL draft in 2010, and raved about his work ethic and potential to become a solid passer. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS: Philip Rivers took a major step back last season for the Chargers, but still can be one of the leagues most productive quarterbacks when hes on his game. So, its unlikely new coach Mike McCoy will look elsewhere for a starter. However, McCoy knows all about what Tebow can do when given an opportunity. The two were together in Denver when Tebow pulled off comeback after comeback during the 2011 season and led the Broncos to the playoffs. McCoy, then Denvers offensive coordinator, worked the offense around Tebows strengths and appeared to be a magician in the process. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS: OK, so its not exactly the homecoming playing in Jacksonville would be, but Tebow would surely be a big draw in his home state even if its as a backup to Josh Freeman. The Buccaneers current backups are Dan Orlovsky, Adam Weber and third-round draft pick Mike Glennon, and Tebow might feel he could overtake them on the depth chart as the No. 2. Tebow has also spent time this offseason working out in Tampa with a former Buccaneers (and Jets) quarterback: Vinny Testaverde. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS: Sure, its a long shot, but Tebow wouldnt be brought in to challenge Tom Brady, of course. Bill Belichick has a knack for bringing in players that other teams discard and reviving their careers in New England. Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels drafted Tebow out of Florida while he was the coach in Denver, and being able to tweak the Jets always makes Belichick grin a little under his hoodie. MONTREAL ALOUETTES: The Alouettes hold exclusive negotiating rights to Tebow in the CFL, where some think he might ultimately end up. He could also consider the recent offer made by Brett Bouchy, the owner of the Orlando Predators whod love to see Tebow playing in the Arena League. LECTURE CIRCUIT: This will always be an option for the ultrapopular Tebow, who attracts huge crowds whenever and wherever he speaks at churches and events. Hes not shy about sharing his strong Christian beliefs, and his multitude of fans extend far beyond the football field. Tebow is extremely active with his Tim Tebow Foundation, trying to help and inspire people around the world. When Tebow is done playing football, which he doesnt believe will be anytime soon, he could surely turn appearances as a motivational speaker into a full-time gig.From wire reports

April 17, issued a statement from President Ernie Grunfeld: We are extremely proud of Jason and support his decision to live his life proudly and openly. He has been a leader on and off the court and an outstanding teammate throughout his NBA career. Those qualities will continue to serve him both as a player and as a positive role model for others of all sexual orientation. Collins coach with the Celtics, Doc Rivers, drew a comparison between Mondays announcement and Jackie Robinsons role when he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947 as the first black player in Major League Baseball. I am extremely happy and proud of Jason Collins. Hes a pros pro. He is the consummate professional and he is one of my favorite team players I have ever coached, Rivers said. If you have learned anything from Jackie Robinson, it is that teammates are always the first to accept. It will be society who has to learn tolerance. Collins said he quietly made a statement for gay rights even while keeping his sexual orientation a secret. He wore No. 98 with the Celtics and Wizards 1998 was year Matthew Shepard, a gay college student in Wyoming, was killed, and the Trevor Project, a suicide prevention organization, was founded. Momentum has been building toward this sort of announcement from a pro athlete in a top league. NFL players Brendan Ayanbadejo and Chris Kluwe were outspoken in support of state gaymarriage amendments during last years elections. President Barack Obama spoke about his support for gay marriage during his re-election campaign. The topic made waves during Super Bowl week when one player, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver, said he wouldnt welcome a gay member of his team. At the time, Ayanbadejo estimated at least half of the NFL s players would agree with what Culliver said, at least privately. On Monday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to teams reiterating the leagues antidiscrimination policy about sexuality. It includes a section on questions teams cannot ask prospective draft picks and free agents. After the NFL combine in February, three players said officials posed questions about sexual orientation. Living in the nations capital last month while the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments about same-sex marriage had an effect on Collins. Less than three miles from my apartment, nine jurists argued about my happiness and my future. Here was my chance to be heard, and I couldnt say a thing, he writes. I didnt want to answer questions and draw attention to myself. After being a first-round draft pick in 2001, Collins has averaged 3.6 points and 3.8 rebounds for the New Jersey Nets, Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves, Atlanta Hawks, Celtics and Wizards. Jason has been a widely respected player and teammate throughout his career and we are proud he has assumed the leadership mantle on this very important issue, NBA commissioner David Stern said in a statement. Wizards guard Garrett Temple texted to the AP: I was surprised. I didnt know and I was right next to him in the locker room. It definitely took a lot of courage for him to come out. He was a great teammate. Former Collins teammate Jerry Stackhouse, now with the Brooklyn Nets, wrote in a text: I hope Jason is received well by our NBA family. Jason is a friend and a former teammate that Ive enjoyed many laughs and conversations with and his sexual orientation wont change that with me. Ive already reached out to him personally to show support and will encourage more guys to do the same. Several male athletes have previously come out after they retired, including the NBAs John Amaechi, the NFLs Esera Tuaolo and Major League Baseballs Billy Bean. Rick Welts, president and chief operating officer of the NBAs Golden State Warriors, is openly gay. But Collins is the first to do so while planning to keep playing. I think he is immensely brave. I think its a shame in this day and age he has to be immensely brave, but he is, Amaechi told the AP Hes going to be a remarkable and eloquent spokesperson for what it is to be a decent, authentic human being never mind just for gay people. Collins said if he remains in the NBA, he could face uncomfortable reactions from spectators. I dont mind if they heckle me. Ive been booed before. There have been times when Ive wanted to boo myself. But a lot of ill feelings can be cured by winning, he wrote. He added: I hope fans will respect me for raising my hand. And I hope teammates will remember that Ive never been an in-yourface kind of guy. All you need to know is that Im single. I see no need to delve into specifics.B4TUESDAY, APRIL30, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Associated PressThen-Boston Celtics center Jason Collins, left, guards Detroit Pistons center Greg Monroe on Jan. 20 in Auburn Hills, Mich. Collins has become the first male professional athlete in the major four American sports leagues to come out as gay. The 34-year-old Collins finished this past season with the Washington Wizards and is now a free agent. He says he wants to continue playing. COLLINSContinued from Page B1 Collins coming out reactionIf you have learned anything from Jackie Robinson, it is that teammates are always the first to accept. It will be society who has to learn tolerance. Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers. It is also the straightforward statement of a good man who wants no more than what so many of us seek: to be able to be who we are; to do our work; to build families and to contribute to our communities. former President Bill Clinton. Hey Jason Collins-you are now an activist!!! And trust me, you will sleep a lot better nowfreedom is a sweet feeling indeed! tennis great Martina Navratilova. Jason has been a widely respected player and teammate throughout his career and we are proud he has assumed the leadership mantle on this very important issue. NBA Commissioner David Stern. I only want one thing out of my teammate: a commitment to winning. Whether he is straight, gay, black, white, from Earth, or from Mars is immaterial. Just help us win. Miami Heat forward Shane Battier. I dont think hell be received any differently. There shouldnt be any reason you would view him differently. Milwaukee Bucks guard J.J. Redick.From wire reports Atlanta wins to even series with Pacers Associated PressATLANTA Josh Smith scored 29 points as the Atlanta Hawks built a 17-point lead at halftime, then withstood an Indiana comeback over the final two quarters to even the series with a 102-91 victory in Game 4 on Monday night. After struggling much of the second half, Smith made every big play down the stretch. He swished a rare 3-pointer, came up with an offensive rebound to set up a 3 by Kyle Korver, then finished off a fast break with a right-handed dunk. Paul George scored 18 of his 21 points in the second half as the Pacers made a game of it but couldnt come back from a 57-40 deficit at the break. Tied at two wins apiece, the series returns to Indianapolis for Game 5 on Wednesday night.Nets 110, Bulls 91NEW YORK Brook Lopez had 28 points and 10 rebounds, Deron Williams added 23 points and 10 assists, and the Brooklyn Nets beat Chicago 110-91, cutting the Bulls lead to 3-2 in their first-round playoff series. Andray Blatche scored 10 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter and Gerald Wallace had consecutive baskets down the stretch as the Nets finally pulled away in a game they led most of the way, but never by too much. Two days after rallying for a 142-134 triple-overtime victory, the Bulls were outscored 15-1 down the stretch and failed to set up a secondround series with Miami. Instead, they will host Game 6 on Thursday.Late Sunday night Warriors 115, Nuggets 101OAKLAND, Calif. Stephen Curry shook off a sore left ankle to score 22 of his 31 points in the third quarter, leading the Golden State Warriors past the Denver Nuggets 115-101 on Sunday night for a commanding 3-1 series lead. Curry shot 10 of 16 from the floor and added seven assists in a dominant and dazzling display that rivaled his days in the NCAA tournament for tiny Davidson. His five 3-pointers in the third quarter lifted Golden State to a 20-point lead and its third straight victory in this frenetic and flashy series. Jarrett Jack added 21 points and nine assists and Andrew Bogut broke out in the first half with 12 points and five rebounds for the sixth-seeded Warriors, who can close out the Nuggets in Game 5 tonight in Denver. Ty Lawson scored 26 points and Andre Iguodala had 19 for the third-seeded Nuggets. Associated PressAtlanta Hawks small forward Josh Smith heads to the hoop Monday under pressure from Indiana Pacers power forward David West during the second half in Game 4 of their first-round NBA playoff series in Atlanta. SPORTS BRIEFSBucs agree to terms with 13 free agentsTAMPA UCLA receiver Jerry Johnson and Arizona State cornerback Deveron Carr are among 13 undrafted college free agents agreeing to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs also announced agreements Monday with South Florida tight Evan Landi; Northern Illinois cornerback Rashaan Melvin; Texas receiver D.J. Monroe; Buffalo linebacker Willie Moseley; Arizona State tackle Brice Schwab; Purdue running back Akeem Shavers; Western Kentucky guard Adam Smith; Georgia cornerback Branden Smith; Massachusetts tackle Nick Speller; Southern Mississippi tackle Jason Weaver and Rutgers receiver Tim Wright.Jaguars part ways with three in front officeJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars have parted ways with three front office personnel, including director of player personnel Terry McDonough. The others dismissed by new general manager Dave Caldwell were Louis Clark, the teams director of pro personnel, and regional scout Chris Prescott. The moves came as no surprise given that most new GMs bring in their own personnel staff after the draft. McDonough served as former GM Gene Smiths righthand man the past four years. Clark was promoted in December 2011. Prescott was credited with scouting 2011 first-round pick Blaine Gabbert, who hasnt proven to be a franchise quarterback. The Jaguars also waived first-year defensive end Jerome Long and first-year receiver Jerrell Jackson.SEC commish wants experts picking fieldBIRMINGHAM, Ala. Mike Slive wants knowledgeable football people choosing who plays for the national championship. Whatever the selection committees makeup, the Southeastern Conference commissioner is aiming for a process the fans will buy into when the new system takes effect in two seasons. We want football expertise, Slive said on Monday. We want integrity, and we want transparency, because this is our opportunity to make sure that not only are we comfortable but youre (the media) comfortable and all the fans are comfortable that this process is the way it should be. Its not going to be easy. Slive isnt predicting when that final, big piece of the playoff puzzle will be put in place but is hoping it will be in the next several months. Speaking at the Associated Press Sports Editors Southeast regional meeting across from the SECs downtown headquarters, Slive spoke on the playoff system and the potentially stabilized conference alignment among other issues. The Atlantic Coast Conference last week joined the Big Ten, Pac-12 and Big 12 when its members agreed to a grant of rights handing over their television rights to the league. The legally binding deal runs through 2027 and makes conference-jumping nearly impossible. Slive and ESPN are expected to announce a new SEC Network Thursday in Atlanta minus the grant of rights. Looking at it from the outside looking in, it looks like it may create some stability, Slive said. And I do think that at this stage of where we are stability will be constructive so we can move ahead in some other ways. As for the playoffs, the commissioners decided last week that Cowboys Stadium will host the first championship game in the new postseason system. The Cotton Bowl, Fiesta Bowl and Chick-fil-A bowls joined the Rose, Orange and Sugar bowls in the semifinal rotation.

Space designed to help patientsROBINWILLIAMSADAMS The Lakeland LedgerWINTER HAVEN, Fla. Bubbles, changing colors, rose up in tubes as Bill Fink sank slowly into a low chair beside an abstract painting he and artist Tinia Clark donated to Winter Haven Hospital Behavioral Healths Memory Clinic. Their painting is in the clinics new multisensory room, which also offers lights, sounds and other sensations. Along one wall is a long piece of Clarks artwork that includes feathers, sculpted paper, a flag, fake fur and a mounted game board. The room, done in partnership with the University of South Florida, is designed to give dementia patients at the outpatient clinic a positive, non-threatening experience. It is very frustrating for them, said Dr. Iftikhar Rasul. a psychiatrist at the clinic. They become nervous. They feel they are losing control. It brings frustration, anxiety and depression. In the multi-sensory room, he said, the sensations they experience at their own pace can reduce their anxiety. Its designed to be a stress-free area for the clinics memory patients and for caregivers who come there with patients or to attend a dementia caregivers support group that meets twice a month. Its turned out so much better than I ever could have thought, said Aryn Harrison Bush, who has a doctorate in cognitive aging psychology. She is an assistant professor in the USF College of Human and Social Sciences. I think the clients are going to like it and the caregivers, too, said Cynthia Quinton, the clinics social worker. They often need to relax. Two of the clinics staff members and several USF students are being trained as facilitators to be in the room when patients are there. They will take notes but not tell patients what to do. Their primary function there is to help people relax, gain a sense of autonomy and feel more independent, Bush said. An estimated 14,430 Polk County residents had Alzheimers disease in 2011. With at least one caregiver affected for each patient, however, 28,860 would be a truer measure of its impact. That doesnt include other types of dementia, so the number of people and relatives dealing with memory problems is even greater, said Stefanie Thompson, senior program specialist in the Alzheimers AssociationFlorida Gulf Coast Chapter. Fink, who has another type of dementia, showed little interest in the multi-sensory rooms attractions. He sat there peacefully, saying little, as his wife, Carole, reflected on changes in how people with dementia are treated. Her grandmother went into a nursing home when she developed dementia in 1961. Twenty years later, when her father had Alzheimers, her mother resisted joining a support group, Carole Fink said. She was ashamed of my dad and things he did, she said. Her father also spent several years in a nursing home. She wants things to be different for her husband of 52 years, who is 70 and has Lewy body dementia, another type of progressive dementia. Since Billy was diagnosed, weve had a great life, she said. Ive taken him to Europe eight times since 2004. I made up my mind I wasnt going to be ashamed of him. He goes to one of the countys adult day-care centers three days a week, giving her time for errands or sleep. Carole Fink was enthusiastic as she looked around the multi-sensory room, seeing it as an example of changing approaches to dementia care. Another is the Arts Ensemble Education Foundation program in which Clark worked with Bill Fink on painting. She is its healing arts director. Studies of multisensory environments like this are in their infancy, Bush said. Some preliminary studies, however, indicate its potential to improve mood, reduce challenging behaviors, promote a sense of well-being and improve sleeping patterns among adults with dementia, she said in the application for a grant to create the room. Without a cure for Alzheimers, Bush said, alternative approaches must be studied to improve patients lives. There is a big chasm (between) what we know and what we dont know, she said. The drugs right now are not as effective as we wish they were. Calming roomHEALTH& LIFE In the past year, I have written a lot about the links we have discovered regarding diet and cancer. The obesity epidemic that is taking this country by storm will continue to drive a higher risk of cancer. But our diet as a whole, not for just those who are obese, plays a vital role in our risk of cancer, and also in our outcome after cancer treatment. A new study looking at breast cancer and dairy fat consumption proves this point. For women with a breast cancer diagnosis, high-fat dairy consumption is associated with a higher death risk, according to a study published online in the Journal of the National High-fat dairy See BENNETT/ Page C6 Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Amiodarone and cancer Amiodarone is a drug used for heart patients with irregular heartbeat (Arrhythmia). There are many drugs used for the same purpose, this is one of the older drugs, which was approved more than 25 years ago in the United States by the FDA. It is widely used to treat ventricular arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation a type of arrhythmia. It might be linked to an increased risk for cancer in men and particularly in those with prolonged exposure to the drug, according to a study published online April8 in Cancer. In this populationbased cohort study, Dr. Vincent Yi-Fong Su and If you are a dog owner, I do not need to tell you how much joy and benefit your pet dog brings you, but did you know there is actually some scientific basis for that? Oxytocin is a hormone that seems to be released in the blood when we have contact with our pet dogs. Oxytocin is a stressreducing hormone that helps people calm down and decreases their anxiety. It is produced in the hypothalamus at the base of the brain, and there are neurons, which are nerve cells, in part of the neurologic system that produce and secrete this oxytocin hormone. Scientists and researchers think that oxytocin could be called a bonding hormone, as it seems to function in certain social situations such as the bond Do dogs make us healthier? The American Podiatric Medical Association proclaimed April 2013 as Foot Health Awareness Month. The APMA is performing outreach to try and educate the public on important podiatric issues for patients and promoting foot health. The APMA is focusing on bunions this particular month in its Beat Bunion Blues campaign. Educational materials can be viewed and obtained at www.apma.org under the title Foot Health Awareness. In lay terms, bunions are an annoying protrusion of the joint or noticeable bump in the foot where the great toe joins the foot. Discomfort caused by the rubbing on the protruding joint by shoes is by far the most common complaint of those suffering with a bunion. Some also view the bunion as an unacceptable cosmetic problem with the foot. Urban legend and wives tales accuse the wearing of ill-fitting or pointy-toed shoes as the cause of bunion development, but this is not the case. In medical terms, a bunion is termed hallux abductovalgus. Hallux is Latin for the great toe.

A: The FDAs Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) has formalized a longstanding relationship with the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), a nonprofit organization based in Horsham, Pa. ISMPs mission is to educate the health care community and consumers. Medication errors are preventable mistakes that can happen in labeling, packaging, prescribing, dispensing and communications when the medication is ordered. Causes include: Incomplete patient information, with the health care professional not knowing about allergies and other medications the patient is using. Miscommunication between physicians, pharmacists and other health care professionals. For example, drug orders can be communicated incorrectly because of poor handwriting. Name confusion from drug names that look or sound alike. Confusing drug labeling. Identical or similar packaging for different doses. Drug abbreviations that can be misinterpreted. As a part of its ongoing effort to fight these and other risks, CDER has entered into an agreement with ISMP to develop collaborative efforts to reduce preventable harm from medicines, and to more effectively reach consumers with information on how to use medicines safely. The FDA and ISMP each have well-established online pathways for the reporting of medication errors. ISMP hears from front line practitioners like pharmacists, nurses and physicians via its national Medication Errors Reporting Program. ISMP also has a medication error reporting program for consumers. ISMP shares these reports with MedWatch, the FDAs safety information and adverse event reporting system, which covers bad experiences with medical procedures and products that include drugs, devices, supplements and cosmetics. The collaboration is also designed to provide more informational and educational materials for both consumers and health care professionals. And the relationship will broaden FDAs ability to reach out to these groups when there are issues with product safety and effectiveness. ISMP also has two useful, medication error websites: www.ConsumerMedSafety. org: This site is designed to help consumers get involved in preventing medication errors. The extensive information here includes interactive features. For example, typing in the name of a medication will bring up information about side effects, duplicative treatments and drug interactions. A free safety alert service, about medications patients or their family members are taking, also is available. www.ismp.org: This site is designed more for health care professionals, with information that includes medication safety tools and resources, as well as educational and professional webinars and training programs. Both ISMP websites have lists of potential medication safety issues, such as the drugs most likely to be involved in harmful errors, medications with lookalike or sound-alike names, and error-prone abbreviations.

This week was another one of those rewarding moments in the life of a dentist. It was a few months ago one of my patients, a pharmaceutical rep for one of the big pharmaceutical companies, told me one of the local radiation oncology offices was hosting a screening for head and neck cancer. The office I am referring to is the office of Drs. Bennett and Brant The Robert Biossoneault Oncology Institute in Lecanto. I told her I would be interested in helping out if they could use my help. In just a day or two, I received a call accepting my offer. The screening was this past Saturday. Between Drs. Bennett, Brant, Hodge (from one of their other offices) and I, we must have seen well more than 100 patients in just four hours. Thank God the majority of the patients were screened without any cancer being detected. A few people were put at ease, since what they thought was cancer turned out to be just a variation of normal anatomy. There were a few people who were referred back to their doctors for followup care. If it werent for the doctors and staff at this office who put this together, who knows what would have been in store for those patients who did have a suspicious finding. Speaking of the staff what a nice group of people. Everyone was so pleasant and helpful. I also enjoyed the interaction with the other doctors. As it turned out, I learned a few things from them, and, in turn, they learned a few things from me. The interaction was extremely positive. For any of you who have been a part of something like this in your life, you know what I mean when I say this was a rewarding experience. For those of you who have never taken the time to get involved in an endeavor such as this, you might want to give it a try. We all have gifts and talents we can offer others taking the time to share those gifts is very satisfying. Take that step and get involved.

Cancer Institute. Researchers from Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, California examined the link between dairy intake, recurrence, and death after a breast cancer diagnosis using data from 1,893 female participants in the Life After Cancer Epidemiology study. The women were diagnosed with early stage invasive breast cancer from 1997 to 2000, and completed the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Food Frequency Questionnaire after diagnosis. During a median followup of 11.8 years, 349 women had a recurrence, and 372 died, with 189 deaths from breast cancer. The findings of this study support a healthy diet before and after a cancer diagnosis. The researchers found that overall, dairy intake was positively related to the overall death rate, but was unrelated to breast cancerspecific outcomes. That is, the more highfat dairy products consumed, the higher the risk of dying, but from causes other than breast cancer. There was no association between low-fat dairy intake and recurrence or survival, but high-fat dairy intake correlated with outcomes in these patients, a lot of high-fat dairy products equals a higher risk of dying, a low level equals a better chance of living. Those consuming really large amounts of high-fat dairy products had an increased breast cancer death rate, and a higher death rate from all causes when compared with the reference group who consumed very little or no high-fat dairy products. Yes, breast cancer recurrence was positively associated with high-fat dairy consumption. The elevated risk persisted across different types of high-fat dairy products. So, the take-home message is to limit, if not totally avoid, the use of high-fat dairy products. This study has proven that intake of a large amount of high-fat dairy products, but not low-fat dairy products, was related to a higher risk of death after a breast cancer diagnosis.Dr. C.

The final cohort consisted of 6,418 patients, and was observed from 1997 to 2008. The analysis found that men had 18 percent higher risk of cancer if they were taking the drug, while risk did not increase in women. U.S. Food and Drug Administration post-marketing surveillance has reported cases of lung masses, thyroid cancer and skin cancer associated with Amiodarone, the researchers point out. The risk was also dose dependent i.e., higher the dose, higher the risk of cancer. Also, patients who took Amiodarone for longer duration had higher risk of cancer than those who took it for shorter duration. Amiodarone has several characteristics that make it unique. First, the drug takes weeks to achieve its maximum effectiveness.This is because Amiodarone is stored in most of the tissues of the body, and to load the body with the drug, all the tissues need to be saturated. Second, Amiodarone leaves the body very, very slowly. I must note that though this is a large study, there are many caveats in it. This study was done in Taiwan; it may or may not apply to the U.S. population. Also, increased risk is small. This is a populationbased study, and so is not as reliable as a well-planned study and is subject to some possible miscalculation. For example, though the researchers adjusted for age, sex and comorbidities, they did not look at potential risk factors, such as smoking, environmental exposure, family history of malignancy, alcohol use and obesity. Still, overall this is a good study. My suggestion is if you absolutely need Amiodarone, take it. It is still a good drug. The benefit of the drug many times outweighs the potential risk. Patients on the drug should go for all appropriate screening for cancer. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Abductovalgus describes the position and function of the joint where the bunion occurs. Muscle imbalance that is inherited is the actual cause of the gradual dislocation of the great toe joint in persons who develop bunions. Juvenile bunions of children do exist, but are not very common and again are inherited. Bunions develop slowly as we advance in age in most cases. Bunions tend to become a complaint in the fourth to sixth decades of life. Women tend to complain about bunions more than men as a function of shoe style choices and trends. Bunions can be painful when shoe gear and the joint impart pressure to the tissue between them. For simplicity, I tell patients there are three types of bunions. The first is the bump bunion, where shoes rubbing on the joint, or cosmesis, generate the patients complaints. The second is the arthritic bunion. This occurs when the deviation of the joint prematurely wears the cartilage away causing wear and tear or osteoarthritis discomfort whenever the joint moves. The third is what I call the combo bunion that has both bump pain in shoes and arthritic pain when the joint moves regardless of being shod or unshod. Regardless of the cause, severity or appearance of the bunion, options for dealing with them are twofold: you can treat the bunion with conservative measures or surgery. Conservative measures include, but are not limited to, benign neglect, shoe changes, activity modification, cobbler modifications and different types of pads or cushions. Devices such as bunion splints, physical therapy and toe spacers do not work to reverse or cure bunions. There are many surgical alternatives that are too complicated to go into detail for this column. Generally, surgical alternatives fall into three categories, in my opinion. Simple bunionectomy or soft-tissue procedures remove the bunion bump and attempt to rebalance the joint. These are the least aggressive procedures and thus have the least correction and highest risk of the bunion returning. Osteotomy with bunionectomy is by far the most common surgery for bunions. This surgery offers increased correction, longevity, and a lower risk of the deformity returning than simple bunionectomy alone. Healing time and postoperative restrictions are greater, however. Bunionectomy with osteotomy or fusion nearer the arch offers the greatest correction and insurance against a return of the deformity, but the patient has to be non-weight bearing until healed. This means eight weeks with crutches and possible casting. This is the least common bunion surgery, as patients do not like the nonnegotiable recovery restrictions. Hallux limitus or rigidus is a painful condition in the same area that is often confused with a bunion by patients. Distinguishing between the two and getting the appropriate advice and treatment is imperative as treatment for bunion when the real pathology is hallux rigidus will fail and vice versa. Podiatrists and orthopedists can distinguish between these with and an examination and radiographs. I am a proponent of conservative measures for managing bunions. I recommend elective surgery only as a last resort when painful symptoms affect daily life. My wife actually has bunions on both feet, one worse than the other, but they do not bother her, so I do not recommend surgical correction. I strongly recommend against a patient having bunion surgery for cosmesis. These are my opinions only, and other physicians may disagree and have valid reasons for their opinion. Hopefully, Ive shed some light on bunions during the APMA Foot Health Awareness Month. See a podiatrist or check out www.apma.org during Foot Health Awareness Month for additional information regarding bunions or other foot issues.David B. Raynor.

This bonding effect of the oxytocin hormone is probably stronger in some instances between dog and man than between humans. I think we all probably know examples of when friends or family have bailed out and the dog has remained faithfully at our side. Some outsiders from other areas of the world look at dogs as being dirty and useless, and might think we are crazy in the way we treat our pets, but there are certain cultures and countries that cherish their pets, and treat them like a family member, and spend and do more for their pet than they would a fellow human. The statistics in the pet industry, I think, would certainly support that. Besides creating a bonding effect and being a stress-reducer, dogs also lower our blood pressure and heart rate, and this may be due to the fact that, unlike other pets, you have to interact, walk and exercise with your dog. This gets you up and off of your duff and youre doing something that is good for you. Dogs, especially puppies, have a way of eliciting a humans caregiving response with their cute faces, which also bring out human characteristics such as sympathy and concern all positive feelings that are not only good to experience, but good for our physical and mental well-being, stimulating the oxytocin hormone release. One of the interesting points about dogs is they will willingly gaze into a humans eye, unlike other animals. Researchers think this is very similar to the gaze between a mother and her infant, which is undeniably rewarding and makes you feel good. Dogs, as well as other pets, also teach children to be caring and sympathetic, and teach us how to be responsible for another life. Despite some researchers who feel pets are social parasites that drain our affection, food, money, time and energy, the benefits of having a pet dog are all around us and noticeable each and every day. Service dogs can help our veterans deal with anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder. The Animal Planet shows feature one cute dog or puppy after the other. Or some cute or mischievous behavior by a pet caught on YouTube, is popular to watch and share with friends. Dogs serve unselfishly in law enforcement and military settings, and provide personal protection and companionship, but now we have scientific evidence they just somehow magically make us feel good and prolong our lives and happiness.

The three-hour event was open to the public and was well attended. The clinic was given by Dave Moore of Moore Bait & Tackle, also on West Fort Island Trail. The event included a classroom session that covered fishing regulations, size catch limits, fishing with the tides, casting techniques, protecting the environment while fishing and catch and release techniques. Participants asked many questions. Afterward, some practical techniques were demonstrated on the river dock by the school. It is hoped that similar events will be held in the future.

TUESDAY, APRIL30, 2013 C9CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Lou Holtz, a former football coach, said, Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it. Is bidding 10 percent what your partner bids and 90 percent how you respond to it? Not really; it ought to be an equal division of labor. This week we are looking at responders rebids. In todays deal, what should North do? As we learned yesterday, if North has a weak hand with 6-9 points (or a poor 10), he must pass or bid two hearts or two spades. Here, though, North has game-invitational strength. To show that, he must rebid two no-trump or three of a bid suit (or, although it is impossible here, two of a new suit, as long as that would not be the fourth suit named in the auction, which we will cover later in the week). With three-card heart support, North should jump to three hearts. South would then bid four hearts. Next, look at the West hand. What should he lead against four hearts? The club queen looks mighty tempting. But what happens then? South wins with his ace, takes dummys top spades to shake his club loser, and plays a diamond. West can win and shift to a trump, but declarer plays another diamond. South wins the next heart lead in his hand and ruffs a diamond on the board. He loses only three diamond tricks. With such strong diamonds sitting over declarers second suit, West should lead a trump. Then, as long as he leads another heart every time he is on play, he gets four diamond tricks to defeat the contract.

Since graduating from high school, hes lost touch with the few people he considered friends and has become very isolated. Together with the stress of passing his college courses, he has spiraled into a serious depression. Jarrod constantly laments that he has no friends and that his family only wants him to get a job and move out. (They recently staged an intervention and referred to him as a failure to launch.) He thinks no one besides me would care if anything happened to him. He often states that he wishes everything would just end. I want Jarrod to see a doctor and get help, but he says the idea of talking to someone about his problems scares him and stresses him out even more. Hes convinced no one can help him. He thinks antidepressants would make him feel worse. When I suggest that a better sleep schedule, healthier eating habits and more exercise could help, he says he doesnt care enough to try. How do I help him find the motivation to get the help he needs? I love him and am terrified that hes just given up on life. Worried in the Mountains Dear Worried: Jarrod is depressed, but his unwillingness to get help prevents him from getting better and has become a burden on you. First, please understand that you are not responsible for his mental health, and you cannot help him without his cooperation. Tell him that one little step could make all the difference, and suggest he speak to a counselor at the college. Offer to go with him. You can notify the counseling office about Jarrods depression and ask them to check on him. We also recommend The Depression and Bi pol ar Support Alliance (dbsalliance .org). Dear Annie: My wife and I frequently drive her 80something parents around. Here is the problem: From the time my father-in-law gets in the car until we reach our destination, he sings, whistles and hums. This grates on me like fingernails on a blackboard. I have tried turning up the radio, but he just increases his volume. I attempt conversation, but he only stops singing long enough to answer my question and then immediately resumes his serenade. I know if I were to ask him to stop, it would be the beginning of World War III. He has a bad temper and a short fuse. I get along with him fine otherwise, but I find this incredibly rude and increasingly unbearable. I try to avoid driving them, but our proximity and common gatherings make it hard. My wife seems oblivious. She has been subjected to this all her life. No one has ever had the gumption to poke this wasp nest with a stick. What can I do? Want Duct Tape Dear Want: You could try singing along at the top of your lungs. But really, we dont think Dad does this deliberately to annoy you. It sounds like an ingrained habit. Either tolerate it, drive separate cars or ask your wife to drive while you listen to something else through a set of headphones. Dear Annie: If Technically Impaired in New York wishes to learn how to text, great, but she shouldnt feel obligated to invest in this extra feature or spend time learning how to do it. My extremely techie children took the time to write old-fashioned postcards and handwritten letters to their grandmother, who greatly appreciated their consideration. I taught them that they should be deferring to her needs rather than the other way around. This important relationship of respect and special care has been remembered with great fondness since she passed away in 2011.
