Death of man, 90, ruled a homicide The death of an elderly Citrus County man following an encounter with Citrus County Sheriffs deputies has been ruled a homicide. According the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, on March 26, deputies responded to a residence in Inverness regarding a 90year-old man, John Bradford,who had armed himself with a gun and was threatening to harm himself and others. Deputies arrived on sceneto find Bradfords wife saying he was hurting her and Bradford himself holding a firearm. As deputies tried to apprehend Bradford using non-lethal methods, a struggle ensued and Deputy Russ Howard and Bradford fell to the ground. Bradfords weapon was reportedly secured and it was then discovered that Bradford was injured due to the fall. He was transported to Citrus Memorial hospital and later died as a result of complications from surgery performed due tohis injury, according to a statement by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. The medical examiner has ruled his death a homicide due to the complications that resulted from the interaction with the deputies. The sheriffs office contacted FDLE to perform an investigation due to the ruling of the medical examiners office. The sheriffs office is conducting an administrative review of the incident,as well. Girls death still under investigation Citrus County Sheriffs detectives continue to investigate the death of 2year-old Aliyah Marie Branum, of 1605 N. Julia Way in Hernando.

PAGE A4 TODAY& next morning WEDNESDAY From staff reports Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama signaled Tuesday he would consider U.S. military action against Syria if hard, effective evidence is found to bolster intelligence that chemical weapons have been used in the 2-year-old civil war. Among the potential options being readied for him: weapons and ammunition for the Syrian rebels. Despite such planning, Obama appealed for patience during a White House news conference, saying he needed more conclusive evidence about how and when chemical weapons detected by U.S. intelligence agencies were used and who deployed them. If those questions can be answered, Obama said he would consider actions the Pentagon and intelligence community have prepared for him in the event Syria has crossed his chemical weapons red line. There are options that are available to me that are on the shelf right now that we have not deployed, he told reporters packed into the White House briefing room. Beyond lethal aid to the rebels, several government agencies are also drafting plans for establishing a protective no-fly zone over Syria and for targeted missile strikes, according to officials Obama issues veiled threat on Syria President says chemical weapons use might prompt review of other options E RYNW ORTHINGTON Staff writerR oy Pistone thought he would be the last person to receive a state honor. But thats exactly what happened at the recent Florida School Nutrition Association Annual Conference when Pistone was named state Director of the Year. I was shocked, said Pistone, who heads up the Citrus County School Districts food and nutrition services. I thought they got the wrong name. He was oblivious to his nomination by Gwen McCartneyFreier, finance specialist for food and nutrition services. In her recommendation she wrote, Since coming on board in our district four and a half years ago, this individual has made a point to provide information and education to our managers and staff on the reason why we do what we do. He has a way of thinking outside of our traditional food service program box that entices students to be more active in what we have to offer. Thinking outside the box is exactly what Pistone does by focusing on details and food quality with the goal of student satisfaction within a nice dining experience for our students. He connected the students experience to a consumers practice at a restaurant. If the customer is displeased with the appearance of the interior of a restaurant, theyre unlikely to become a patron. Therefore, Pistone is leading the renovation of all 18 school cafeterias. Some high schools have been modeled to resemble food courts. A la carte areas are in three of four middle schools. We have also added upgraded serving lines, paintings, student pictures and artwork in several school dining areas, McCartney-Freier said in her nomination of Pistone. When students have input in naming their cafeteria or see pictures of themselves and their peers hanging in the facilities, they take a little more pride in their surroundings. Pistone believes that once students are prideful of their cafeteria, they are more open to eat one of the USDA-regulated meals. For too long, the school food services received a bad reputation, Pistone said. They thought it was mystery meat that we served. That is so far from the truth. Any items that we bring in to serve our students have been student-tested and approved, Pistone said. When we bring in an item, it must have a 75 percent approval rating for us to put it on our menus. Pistone credited his team. The goal is to be the best in the state of Florida and Beyond mystery meat Head of food services for county schools recognized for lunchroom innovations MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle Citrus County School District Food Services Director Roy Pistone is pictured above at the Lecanto High School cafeteria where a food court concept is incorporated. Pistone was recently named Florida Outstanding Director of the Year in food services. He said th e food court concept that the three public high schools are incorporating is designed to imitate what many teens see in shopping mall food c ourts. Chronicle staffOn Thursday, the 62nd annual National Day of Prayer, Americans across the nation are invited to stop and offer prayers for the nation and their communities. Every year on National Day of Prayer, always the first Thursday in May, prayer events take place all across the nation, from prayer breakfasts, Bible reading marathons, concerts of prayer, rallies, church prayer vigils, student flagpole gatherings and observances held in sports stadiums. Here in Citrus County, two prayer gatherings will take place at noon Thursday, May 2, one outside the Inverness Government Center, 212 W. Main St., Inverness, and the other at the gazebo behind City Hall in Crystal River. This year the theme is Pray For America and the scripture reference is In His name the nations will put their hope (Matthew12:21). The public is invited to participate in this nondenominational event.

If you were her patient, she wasnt afraid to demand the best care for you. And if you didnt follow her instructions, she wouldnt let you slide. She was tough, but only because she cared. Local physician Dr. Arnelle Eslava-Fernandez died April 15. She was 55. She called me her older sister she was my doctor and my friend, too, said Margaret Hunt, bookkeeper for Dr. Fernandez. She was a good doctor. Very, very smart, very quick, a very good diagnostician, Hunt said. She had an innate ability to diagnose. Patients and friends who signed her obituary guest book said she was a doctor they could trust, that she treated her patients with dignity and respect and that she would come to the hospital in the middle of the night to see a patient who needed her.

Man charged in deadly festival shooting WILLISTON A 19-year-old man is accused of shooting five people during the annual Crab Festival in Williston. Authorities arrested Devonte Ocasio on Monday during a traffic stop in nearby Marion County. He was taken to Levy County, where he was charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Additional charges are pending. The Gainesville Sun reported 36-year-old Barry Barney of Gainesville died from his injuries while being airlifted to the hospital. Levy County Sheriffs officials declined to release the names of the other victims. Authorities said they fear retaliation because they believe the shooting was motivated by some type of drug-related crime. The shooting happened about 8 p.m. Saturday as a huge crowd gathered in Williston. Officials said they arent ruling out the possibility of a second shooter.Cops: Woman caused crash to kill herself, boy CLEARWATER A St. Petersburg woman faces attempted murder charges after telling police she caused a car crash to try to kill herself and a 2-year-old boy. The Tampa Bay Times reported the crash happened about 10:30 a.m. Monday in Clearwater. Police said 39-year-old Tiffany Drake told responding officers that she drove her vehicle into the rear of a Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority vehicle. Drake and the child didnt appear injured, but the boy was taken to the hospital for observation. The other driver received minor injuries and his passenger was taken to the hospital with more serious injuries. Police said Drake stepped on the gas and reached speeds of up to 50 mph before intentionally ramming the other car. The relationship between Drake and the child was not disclosed. Bill eliminates mental retardation in state lawTALLAHASSEE The Florida Legislature has unanimously passed a bill that removes the term mental retardation from state law and replaces it with intellectual disability. The House on Tuesday voted 119-0 for the bill (SB 142) that was already unanimously passed by the Senate. The measure also replaces mentally retarded and retarded with intellectually disabled. The bill now goes to the governor to be signed into law. The change would not affect the content or effect of any laws. Proponents of the bill have said the word retarded is outdated and has become offensive. Forty-three states have already taken steps to remove the word retarded from their laws. President Obama signed a law in 2010 striking use of the term in federal policy.Measure would require care for infants surviving abortionTALLAHASSEE Florida lawmakers have sent to Gov. Rick Scott a bill that would require medical care for newborns who survive botched abortions. The measure (HB 1129) won final passage on a 38-0 Senate vote Tuesday. It would penalize abortion providers who dont provide medical care for infants born alive despite attempted abortions. Abortion-rights supporters said such a scenario is extremely rare. But some abortion opponents have said its not such a rarity. A woman who claimed she was born after her mother tried to abort her appeared before a legislative panel to support the bill. The measure loomed as the major abortion-related bill for the 60-day legislative session ending Friday. A bill that would ban abortions based solely on an unborn childs gender or race isnt making headway in the Senate. George Zimmerman wont seek immunity hearing SANFORD The former neighborhood watch leader charged with fatally shooting a Florida teenager told a judge Tuesday he agrees with his defense attorneys decision not to seek an immunity hearing under the states Stand Your Ground self-defense law. Under questioning from Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, George Zimmerman repeatedly said yes to a series of questions asking if he was aware he was giving up the right to a hearing before his second-degree murder trial in June. A judge would have sole discretion in an immunity hearing to decide if Zimmerman is exempt from culpability in the shooting. A jury would make the determination in the murder trial. familiar with the planning. However, the officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the internal deliberations, stressed that Obama had not yet decided to proceed on any of the plans. As Obama raised the prospect of deeper U.S. involvement, Hezbollahs leader said Tuesday that his Iranian-backed militant group stood ready to aid Syrian President Bashar Assad. And new violence in Syria hit the capital of Damascus, as a powerful bomb ripped through a bustling commercial district, killing at least 14 people. Mindful that any military intervention in the combustible Middle East would be complicated and dangerous, Obama hinted the U.S. would probably avoid taking action unilaterally. Part of the rationale for building a stronger chemical weapons case against Assad, Obama said, is to avoid being in a position where we cant mobilize the international community to support what we do. Obama has resisted calls to expand U.S. assistance beyond the nonlethal aid the government is providing the rebels. That has frustrated some allies, as well as some U.S. lawmakers, who say the deaths of 70,000 Syrians should warrant a more robust American response. Tuesdays wide-ranging news conference coincided with the 100-day mark of Obamas second term. Its a stretch that has been defined by the defeat of gun control legislation he supported, as well as the continuation of old disputes that marked the presidents first four years in office, including the Syria conflict and the launching of his controversial health care overhaul. Asked if he still had the juice to get legislation approved, he smiled and paraphrased Mark Twains famous line, saying, Rumors of my demise may be a little exaggerated at this point. Another issue that frustrated Obama in his first term resurfaced when he was pressed about the hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay, the detention center he promised to close but hasnt been able to. Obama said he would make another run at it, though he was vague about how. Im going to go back at this, he said. Ive asked my team to review everything thats currently being done in Guantanamo, everything that we can do administratively, and Im going to re-engage with Congress to try to make the case that this is not something thats in the best interest of the American people. The president also took questions for the first time about the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings that rattled the nation two weeks ago. He defended the FBIs 2011 investigation into Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the suspect who was killed, a probe that resulted in the bureau finding no evidence he was a threat to the United States. Russia has since provided more information about Tsarnaev and his mother both ethnic Chechens that could have resulted in a more rigorous FBI investigation. Obama pointedly said that Moscow has been cooperative since the Boston bombings. He made no reference to information being held back ahead of the attack, but he did say, Old habits die hard. There are still suspicions sometimes between our intelligence and law enforcement agencies that date back 10, 20, 30 years, back to the Cold War. Russia has also stymied U.S. efforts at the United Nations to mount pressure against Assads embattled government in Syria. Assad has refused to let a U.N. team into the areas near Damascus and Aleppo where chemical weapons are believed to have been used. The White House says the team is standing by and could deploy to Syria within 48 hours if Assad allows it in. Given the unlikelihood of Assad giving the inspectors access, the U.S. says it is also seeking answers on its own and through international partners. Polling suggests warweary Americans are reluctant to see the U.S. get involved in another conflict in the Middle East. A CBS News/ New York Times poll out Tuesday shows 62 percent of Americans say the country does not have a responsibility to intervene in the fighting in Syria, while 24 percent say the government does have that responsibility. While Obama insists all options are on the table when it comes to dealing with Syria, the White House has little appetite for putting American soldiers into combat there. Even Arizonas Republican Sen. John McCain, who has pressed for aggressive U.S. involvement, has said putting U.S. troops on the ground in Syria would be a mistake. Underscoring the danger that could await, the leader of Lebanons Hezbollah militant group said Tuesday that Syrian rebels will not be able to defeat Assads forces by themselves, suggesting the governments friends, including his Iranian-backed group would intervene on the government side if necessary. Hezbollah and Iran are close allies of Assad, both accused by rebels of sending fighters to assist Syrian troops. In Washington, Obama also took questions Tuesday about the immigration debate on Capitol Hill. Obama said that while a bill crafted by eight senators four Democrats and four Republicans was not the legislation he would have written, I do think that it meets the basic criteria that I laid out from the start. Obama also defended the implementation of the health care overhaul he signed in his first term, though he said there will be glitches and bumps as the sweeping law is fully implemented. He cited the unveiling Tuesday of simplified forms for people applying for insurance as an example of the administration trying to make the rollout of the laws final stages smoother.

From staff reports S TATE & L OCAL Page A3 WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Utility to host stockholders P AT F AHERTY Staff writerDuke Energy will have its first annual shareholders meeting Thursday since merging with Progress Energy and becoming the largest electric utility in the United States with $19.6 billion in revenue. In his letter to stockholders regarding the meeting in Charlotte, N.C., Duke CEO-ChairmanPresident James E. Rogers listed the issues up for vote. These included election of the board of directors and approval of executive compensation on an advisory basis. For 2012, Rogers total compensation was valued at approximately $8.7 million. Bill Johnson, former Progress Energy CEO, who became Dukes CEO after the merger and was quickly ousted, got approximately $28.6 million and former Duke/Progress executive Jeffrey Lyash got approximately $7.3 million About 200 stockholders are expected to attend the meeting, which will be formal in nature to meet Security and Exchange Commission requirements. As for information discussed, its essentially a recap of the annual report that is out there on our website. 2012 was a good year so it is a mainly positive meeting, Duke spokesperson Sterling Ivey said. After the pure SEC business part of the meeting, Jim Rogers usually speaks openly to the audience and fields questions from those in attendance. Rogers is expected to provide stockholders with an overview of the companys 2012 performance and 2013 objectives. In the annual report, he called 2012 a year of perseverance and transformation.

Special to the Chronicle As of April 29, Progress Energy Florida officially changed its name to Duke Energy Florida. Duke to conduct first annual meeting since Progress merger Crystal River chooses MATTHEW BECK /Chronicle The Crystal River City Council, in its capacity as the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), recently awarded the consulting contract to Real Estate Research Consultants. The consulting group is charged with, among other things, devising plans to effectively redevelop the citys commercial waterfront district. Consultant picked for community redevelopment study A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The city has hired a consulting group to help with the big-picture implications of a boardwalk and what to do with the commercial waterfront. And, at least one city council member is hoping the consultants report will broach new territory. I hope what we hear from them is different, Councilwoman Paula Wheeler said. She said having new ideas will help in the redevelopment of the entire commercial waterfront area. The council, in its capacity as the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), recently awarded the consulting contract to Real Estate Research Consultants. The contract is worth $48,000. The CRA board commissioned a Request for Proposals (RFP) for consultant services in late February. City officials received four responses by April 2, but Real Estate Research had the lowest bid and the company is partnering with the firm of Bellomo-Herbert and Company Inc. for the project. Bellomo-Herbert has worked with the city before in developing the redesign of Hunter Springs Park. City Manager Andy Houston said the consulting firm will look at the following issues: Review the citys Land Development Code provisions and submit recommendations for revised code provisions to be applicable exclusively to properties within a proposed waterfront development district, with such provisions to specifically address, but not be limited to, setbacks, building height, stormwater treatment, parking, and appearance. Determine the best mechanism for moving forward with a master site development plan for the proposed waterfront development district, which will address the identification of both necessary infrastructure requirements and related funding strategies for associated costs that take into account the varied ownership of properties within the proposed district. Develop recommendations related to encouraging/incentivizing private investment within the proposed waterfront development district focused on the development of vacant properties and the redevelopment of under-utilized properties. Develop recommendations for improving public access to the waterfront within the proposed waterfront development district. The creation of a Preliminary Redevelopment Plan for the proposed waterfront development district. Houston said the consulting group should be coming out with its report in 60 to 90 days. Getting streetwise: Residents pay for paving C HRIS V AN O RMER Staff writerResidents along four streets in the Inverness Village subdivision have reached the end of a long journey to get paving laid in front of their houses. The paving itself didnt take long. It was everything else, said Dick Marr. We had our first meeting with the county a year and a half ago. By January this year, the roadwork was finished. Paving was rolled and sod laid on the rights of way blended into the adjoining lawns. That put an end to years of living on dusty dirt or sticky mud roads, depending on the weather, for those who have an address on East Commercial Lane, East Amsterdam Street, East Bennett Street and part of North Crestwood Avenue. Vehicles getting stuck in the mud were a worry during rainstorms. But residents of the 41 homes built since 2005 in the neighborhood between Independence Highway and U.S. 41 also have been concerned about getting emergency vehicles into their streets. Now the job of getting the roads paved is done, but it was a challenge. We underestimated the scope of work a little bit because were not engineers, said Giovanni Van Den Abbeele. We thought that they were going to bring some pavers in and that was going to be it. But there was a lot more to it. Swales, water lines, electricity lines, television cable lines and the water district all were part of the project. Residents said they were glad to have the work of the Southwest Florida Water Management District to help with flood prevention. Once the project got started last fall, Van Den Abbeele said he was impressed with the countys public works department and director Ken Frink. He mentioned John Vandenberghe, field inspection supervisor. He did a good job and he followed up with all the homeowners, Van Den Abbeele said. He was here on a daily basis. Wherever there was an issue, he took care of it. The residents advise other communities that are tired of their dirt roads to do as they did. Contact the county, schedule a meeting and see whats possible, said Van Den Abbeele. In the past, costs had been prohibitive for a Municipal Services Benefit Unit to build roads in Inverness Village. But since 2010, standards requiring curbs, storm drains and sidewalks were modified in the countys Land Development Code for certain pre-existing subdivisions, including Inverness Village, which made the assessment area cheaper to pave. The hard roads have changed residents lives. We all sold our dirt bikes, Van Den Abbeele joked. We dont need them anymore. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicleonline. com. CHRIS VAN ORMER /Chronicle Standing firmly on their newly paved road on East Commercial Lane are Inverness Village residents Kathy Burns, Ralph Burns, Dick Marr and Giovanni Van Den Abbeele. Fed up with their cars getting stuck in the mud, last year residents on four roads asked the county to pave them. The cost was paid through a Municipal Services Benefit Unit (MSBU), where each property owner contributes a share of the cost. Parent trigger bill fails Associated PressTALLAHASSEE For the second straight year, the Florida Senate on Tuesday defeated a bill aimed at giving parents a voice in charting a turnaround plan for failing public schools. The measure championed by school-choice supporters failed on a dramatic 20-20 vote after a drawn-out debate. Afterward, applause broke out in the gallery, drawing a stern rebuke from the Senate president. The debate turned into a replay from last year, when a similar bill passed the Florida House but died in the Senate on a tie vote. Five Republicans in the GOP-led Senate switched their votes from a year ago, including four one-time supporters who voted against the measure Tuesday. Supporters characterized House Bill 867 as giving parents a seat at the table in setting a turnaround course for failing public schools in the state. Give parents a right to be involved with their school, said Republican Sen. Aaron Bean. How hard is that? Opponents countered that parents already wield considerable influence in setting each schools course. They also called it a back-door way to hand public schools over to private educational companies. Im just concerned that this is the beginning of an ingenious plot, a blueprint for the corporate takeover of public schools, said Democratic Sen. Darren Soto. What if we get stuck with all these schools privatized and it doesnt work out?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Treat all your friends in your usual considerate manner, but dont let anyone walk all over you. A person whos taken advantage of you in the past may try to do so again. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) In order to achieve an important objective, you must stay focused on your target at all times. If you deviate, you are likely to be thrown off course. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Although your judgment is likely at its soundest, unfortunately, you might allow lesser heads to rule the day. Aries (March 21-April 19) By working in fits and starts, you severely minimize your effectiveness and pro ductivity. That doesnt mean you wont do anything well, it just means you wont do enough.

She hurled paint into a Learjet engine Tuesday from a tarmac in West Palm Beach, splattering the colors onto a canvas to create the abstract designs for which she has become known. The jet engine pushes the paint into a force several times greater than hurricane winds, creating an intense power and heat. Von Anhalt said that power and heat helps create this one-of-a-kind art. She started her artwork in 2006 after studying the work of her mentor and late husband, Prinz Jurgen von Anhalt. Tuesdays demonstration is part of an event by a private jet services company and an art group to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Learjet. Curb Records sues Tim McGrawNASHVILLE, Tenn. Curb Records is suing Tim McGraw Again. The Nashville, Tenn.-based label has filed a lawsuit against the country music star and Big Machine Records in federal court, alleging copyright infringement and breach of contract. Curb has also sued McGraw in Tennessee state court, but has thus far failed to keep McGraw from recording new music under a new agreement with Big Machine, which put out Two Lanes of Freedom earlier this year. The lawsuit asks for a return of master recordings, compensatory and punitive damages and an injunction against future recording or releases until its contract with McGraw has been fulfilled. The state case remains in front of a judge, but the court allowed McGraw to record for a new label in a decision thats been upheld on appeal. Candice Bergen producing filmLOS ANGELES Candice Bergen is producing a film about her late father, the famed ventriloquist Edgar Bergen a spokeswoman said Tuesday. The big-screen project will tell the story of Bergens dad and his ventriloquists dummy that became an unlikely celebrity, spokeswoman Heidi Schaeffer said. The movie will be based on Candice Bergens 1984 memoir, Knock Wood. In a statement, Murphy Brown star Bergen said her father was overshadowed by the 3-foot-long wood character named Charlie McCarthy, who got the best lines while the reserved Edgar Bergen played straight man. This creation took over and eclipsed the creator, Candice Bergen said. It was the dummy that wouldnt die. All the fan mail initially went to Charlie. And Edgar wasnt really welcome at parties in the beginning unless Charlie was with him. It was totally surreal. Edgar Bergen died in 1978 at the age of 75. From wire reports Associated Press JetArt Groups artist Princess Tarinan von Anhalt replaces a traditional paintbrush with hurricane-force winds generated by Flexjets Learjet 40 XR aircrafts engine. The heat and velocity dispensed from the engine blend and weld the paint onto the canvas, resulting in one-of-a-kind, abstract paintings.

Buckskin Ave., Floral City. Her parents wanted her to be a doctor, so she became one and served as a medical health officer. She met her husband, Conrado, in 1978 when she was in college. They married in 1982 in a civil ceremony, followed by a church wedding in 1985. They had three daughters Kathleen, Abigayle and Coreen and moved to the U.S. in 1992. They came to Citrus County in 2005 when Arnelle took over an Inverness practice. Education was important to her, said her husband. She sent a lot of money to her family in the Philippines and put almost her whole family through college lots of nephews and nieces. She also made sure her daughters had a good education. Kathleen is a nurse practitioner in Orlando; Abigayle, a biology major, is studying to go into forensics, and Coreen is finishing up school to be a physicians assistant. All three daughters are following their mothers example, and even grandson Jaythan, 7, has his own stethoscope, scrubs and doctors coat. I used to make rounds at the hospital with her, he said. Hunt said Dr. Fernandez would bring him to the office and he would sometimes bring patients to the examining room. Our mother taught us that there is nothing more important than family, daughter Coreen said. She also taught us humility. Even though she spoiled us, she always made sure that nothing was flaunted or too extravagant. As a devout Catholic, their mother taught them about the importance of faith and forgiveness, of not holding grudges. They learned by her example what it meant to selflessly serve other people, that relationships are far more important than material things. Arnelle loved to go shopping and buy clothes, but she would send most all of the items to her relatives in the Philippines. She took her grandson to the park; sought therapy by working in her garden. She couldnt sleep until everyone was home, safe under her roof. She loved American Idol and Dancing with the Stars and playing Ruzzle on her iPhone. She played piano, Pachelbels Canon in D and Beethovens Fr Elise. She laughed all the time. She was the strongest woman I know, Coreen said. The most stubborn and determined woman ever. She was the most perfect mother in every sense of the word. Although we think she left the world too early, it was still the best times of our lives that we will remember forever. I could only hope to be half as amazing and as perfect as she was. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com.

Larry J. Hearold Jr. will make a request before the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission for a conditional-use permit to allow for the raising of four horses, one goat, 10 poultry and five rabbits for non-commercial purposes at his home in West Rusk Lane, Lecanto, a mediumdensity residential district amounting to about 4.81 acres. The animals would be kept in a fenced area of about 200 feet by 330 feet in size. Conditional-use permits allow property owners to use their property in other ways they would wish that do not strictly adhere to the land-use designation, such as keeping animals in a residential district. The PDC can permit this land use while setting conditions to control potential risks. The countys Land Development Code (LDC) requires a minimum lot size of 2 acres for animals in a medium-density residential district and restricts the maximum number of animals per acre. The applicant meets these requirements. The neighborhood appears rural in character and is similar to land areas where previous conditional use applications have been approved for animals. Under the LDC, the panel may grant the permit if it will not cause a difficulty in the neighborhood and would appear compatible with adjacent properties. Staff will recommend approval with four conditions: The numbers and types of animals wont change and shall be for the sole use and enjoyment of the residents. Any future structure to confine the animals shall be located not less than 50 feet from a property line. The raising of animals will follow rules set by the University of Florida and Natural Resources Conservation Service. Methods of waste management, pest control and odor abatement must be demonstrated. Any future modification would require an amendment of this conditional use.

Private sales legal for first time in five decades Associated PressHAVANA In some ways, Yosuan Crespos real estate office resembles any you might find in New York, London or Tokyo. There are slick posters of hot properties hanging from the ceiling, a steady stream of hopeful buyers and sellers and a constant clack of computer keys. But Crespos headquarters in central Havanas trendy Vedado neighborhood is actually somebody elses breezy front porch. The computers only connection to the Internet is a creaky dial-up link, and Crespo is careful to say hes not operating as a broker, since the job is still technically illegal. A baffling, sometimes bizarre real estate market has emerged in the year and a half since President Raul Castro legalized private home sales on this Communist-run island for the first time in five decades. While trade in homes is now legal, the people who bring buyers together with sellers are not. The government has yet to make good on promises to legitimize brokers, most of whom still operate in the shadows. Its a story that has been typical of Castros economic reforms, which often have left little space for the sort of middlemen and other services that help markets work. The Cuban leader also has legalized a used car market, but not the right to open a business that sells them. And while reforms have sparked an explosion of private restaurants and cafes across Cuba, the government has yet to give them access to wholesalers that could keep them better supplied. Crespo gets around the broker ban by operating as a licensed computer programmer and photographer, helping clients list their properties on Web portals, producing the forsale posters that hang in his office and offering digital photo services for sellers. He says he doesnt charge commissions. Crespos listed fees are just a few dollars, but hes found himself in major demand. He estimates 30 to 40 customers a day wander into his porch-side business, called EspacioCuba. He said his service has 2,500 current listings and has helped sell about 250 properties since it opened in January. Right now we are very pleased, said Crespo, a smartly dressed 28-yearold computer scientist with close-cropped hair, but he added the market would benefit by the government made brokering legal. The market also still lacks a workable mortgage system, an easy means of advertising potential sales and, most important, a middle class with resources to buy. Yet sales are humming, with some 45,000 homes changing hands in the first eight months after Castro legalized the real estate market in November 2011, according to the most recent statistics from the government. Prices for the choicest properties are staggeringly high: One of Crespos Havana listings offers the top floor of a threebedroom, three-bathroom colonial-style house with a marble staircase and a graceful, blue-pillared porch for $250,000 a fortune in a country where salaries average around $20 a month.

The World Federation of Hungarians, of which Racz was honorary president, confirmed that he died while receiving treatment for an undisclosed illness at the National Institute of Obituaries Deaths ELSEWHERE Tony Award nods skip stars for veterans Associated PressNEW YORK The Tony Awards committee largely favored tried-andtrue stage veterans over flashy visitors Tuesday when announcing this years Tony nominations, with Hollywood stars such as Bette Midler, Jessica Chastain, Al Pacino, Katie Holmes and Scarlett Johansson never hearing their names called. With the exception of Broadway debutant Tom Hanks, the acting categories were mostly filled by established theater creatures such as Laurie Metcalf, Amy Morton, Laura Osnes, Nathan Lane, Tracy Letts, David Hyde Pierce and Kristine Nielsen. Hanks, who earned a best actor nod playing gutsy New York City newspaper columnist Mike McAlary in the late Nora Ephrons Lucky Guy, joked that he was out of his league and that to win hed have to beat Lane and Pierce. Olivier and Gielgud! Hanks exclaimed. Its such a thrill and a delight to be included with these guys. He added: This makes me both giddy and nervous, and it could not be more special. The awards will be broadcast on CBS from Radio City Music Hall on June 9. The snubs of bigname actors may mean a less starry telecast. Stage veterans littered the play and musical categories, including the tight race to be crowned best musical. The leading contenders Kinky Boots and Matilda: The Musical are both stories that celebrate the little guy. Kinky Boots is based on the 2005 British movie about a real-life shoe factory that struggles until it finds new life making fetish footwear. Cyndi Laupers songs and a story by Harvey Fierstein both nominated have made it a crowd-pleaser. When we were writing this, I kept thinking I dont know if this show is going to be any good, but at the very least I think Ive discovered a new Broadway composer, Fierstein said of Lauper, who was writing songs for the stage for the first time. I could hear it. My feeling is Cyndis going to be around for a while. The show earned a leading 13 nominations, including sets by David Rockwell, directing and choreography by Jerry Mitchell, and nominations for its two leading men, Billy Porter and Stark Sands. Annaleigh Ashford earned a featured role nomination. Close behind with 12 nominations is Matilda: The Musical, the witty, dark musical adaptation of the novel by Roald Dahl that is still running in London. Matilda earned nominations for Peter Darlings choreography, Matthew Warchus directing, Chris Nightingales orchestrations, Dennis Kellys book, Tim Minchins lyrics and songs, and Bertie Carvel for best leading role in a musical.

Interest rates Associated PressNEW YORK News that IBM will buy back more stock and raise its dividend helped pull major stock indexes out of a morning slump Tuesday. IBM and other technology stocks led the Standard & Poors 500 index up. The broad-market measure ended April with a 1.8 percent gain, the sixth month in a row the index has climbed higher. Worries about slower economic growth have rattled the stock market this month, but it has consistently bounced back. Brad Sorensen, director of market research at the brokerage Charles Schwab, said thats a result of investors having few alternatives. Right now it seems like every pullback in the market is seen as a buying opportunity, Sorensen said. People may say theyre getting nervous, but where else are you going to put money at this point? Into Europe with their political issues? Into Treasurys paying less than 1.7 percent? The S&P 500 edged up 3.96 points to close at 1,597.57. The slight gain of 0.3 percent pushed the index to an all-time high for the second day straight. A report of another record high in European unemployment helped drive money into U.S. government debt, briefly sending the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note to its lowest level of the year, 1.65 percent. IBM said it will increase its quarterly dividend by a dime, to 95 cents, and buy back up to $5 billion more of its own stock. Earlier this month, the company surprised investors when it reported a drop in quarterly earnings and sales. IBMs stock rose $3.39 to $202.54. The tech giants 1.7 percent gain tugged the Dow Jones industrial average up. The Dow fell as much as 84 points in morning trading but ended with a gain of 21.05 points at 14,839.80. Thats an increase of 0.1 percent. The S&P has now climbed for six months in a row. Thats the longest stretch of gains since a seven-month run that started in March 2009, when the market hit a financial crisis low, and ended in October 2009. This earnings season has delivered investors a mixed bag of news. More than half of the companies in the S&P 500 have turned in results, and seven of 10 have beaten analysts estimates for earnings, according to S&P Capital IQ. Nearly as many, however, have come up short on revenue: Six of 10 have missed analysts revenue targets. That suggests companies are getting more of their profits from laying off staff and other cost-cutting efforts instead of from higher sales. Big Blue saves stocks from early slump Associated Press Trader Robert Arciero works Tuesday on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Business BRIEFS Brighter view on jobs and pay lifts US confidence WASHINGTON Americans are more optimistic that the job market is healing and will deliver higher pay later this year. That brighter outlook, along with rising home prices, cheaper gasoline and a surging stock market, could offset some of the drag from recent tax increases and government spending cuts. A gauge of consumer confidence rose in April, reversing a decline in March, the Conference Board, a private research group, said Tuesday. The board attributed the gain to optimism about hiring and pay increases. Economists also cited higher home values and record stock prices. Despite the rise in the index, to 68.1 from 61.9 in March, confidence remains well below its historic average of 92. Still, the increase signaled that consumers, whose spending drives about 70 percent of the economy, see better times ahead. US home prices up 9.3 percent, most in 7 yearsWASHINGTON U.S. home prices rose 9.3 percent in February compared with a year ago, the most in nearly seven years. The gains were driven by a growing number of buyers who bid on a limited supply of homes. The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index increased from an 8.1 percent year-over-year gain in January. And annual prices rose in February in all 20 cities for the second month in a row. Phoenix led with an annual gain of 23 percent in February. Prices jumped nearly 19 percent in San Francisco. In Las Vegas, home prices increased 17.6 percent and in Atlanta they rose 16.5 percent. US employment compensation up 0.3 percent in 1QWASHINGTON Americans wages increased at a faster rate from January through March than the previous quarter, a trend that helped boost consumer spending at the start of the year. But benefits barely grew. The Labor Department said Tuesday that an index that measures wages and benefits rose 0.3 percent during the first quarter. Thats down from a 0.4 percent gain in the OctoberDecember quarter and the smallest gain in a year. Wages and salaries rose 0.5 percent, up from the 0.3 percent gain in the previous quarter. Benefits, including health insurance and pension contributions, rose just 0.1 percent after a 0.6 percent rise in the fourth quarter.Shoppers face hurdles in finding ethical clothing NEW YORK You can recycle your waste, grow your own food and drive a fuel-efficient car, but being socially responsible isnt so easy when it comes to the clothes on your back. Take Jason and Alexandra Lawrence of Lyons, Colo. The couple eats locally grown food that doesnt have to be transported from far-flung states. They fill up their dieselpowered Volkswagen and Dodge pickup with vegetable-based oil. They even bring silverware to a nearby coffeehouse to avoid using the shops plastic utensils. But when it comes to making sure their clothes are made in factories that are safe for workers, they fall short. Clothing is one of our more challenging practices, says Jason Lawrence, 35, who mostly buys secondhand. I dont want to travel around the world to see where my pants come from. Last weeks building collapse in Bangladesh that killed hundreds of clothing factory workers put a spotlight on the sobering fact that people in poor countries often risk their lives working in unsafe factories to make the cheap T-shirts and underwear Westerners buy.Online poker back: Legal website launches in Nevada LAS VEGAS Poker devotees can now skip the smoky casino and legally gamble their dollars away on the couch at least in Nevada. A Las Vegas-based casino subsidiary launched the first fully legal poker website in the U.S. on Tuesday. The site, run by Ultimate Gaming, only accepts wagers from players in Nevada for now, but likely represents the next chapter in gambling nationwide. Internet poker, never fully legal, has been strictly outlawed since 2011, when the Justice Department seized the domain names of the largest offshore sites catering to U.S. customers and blacked them out. Pfizer 1Q profit up, but drugmaker cuts outlookPfizer Inc.s first-quarter net income rose 53 percent despite falling sales, mainly because the worlds second-largest drugmaker took big charges a year ago. Pfizers results fell short of Wall Streets expectations, and the company lowered its profit and sales forecasts for the year, blaming a sudden worsening of currency exchange rates. Pfizer is struggling because generic competition is reducing revenue for two-thirds of its drugs, more than a dozen of which are former blockbusters that had brought in $1 billion or more annually. When drug patents expire, cheaper generic versions flood the market, and most patients quickly switch to them. The biggest hit has been copycat versions of Pfizers cholesterol fighter Lipitor, which was the worlds best-selling drug for nearly a decade until it lost exclusivity in the U.S. in 2011 and in much of Europe last year. Revenue from Lipitor, which once brought in about $13 billion a year, dropped 55 percent to $626 million in the first quarter.FDA will investigate added caffeine in foodsWASHINGTON For people seeking an energy boost, companies are increasing their offerings of foods with added caffeine. A new caffeinated gum may have gone too far. The Food and Drug Administration said Monday that it will investigate the safety of added caffeine and its effects on children and adolescents. The agency made the announcement just as Wrigley was rolling out Alert Energy Gum, a new product that includes as much caffeine as a half a cup of coffee in one piece and promises the right energy, right now. Michael Taylor, FDAs deputy commissioner of foods, indicated that the proliferation of new foods with caffeine added especially the gum, which he equates to four cups of coffee in your pocket may even prompt the FDA to look closer at the way all food ingredients are regulated.

On April 15, 2013, in Boston, it took two homemade bombs to kill three people (one child) and wound dozens, many of them horribly. When it comes to slaughter, it is clear that AR-15s are vastly more efficient than homemade bombs. Nonetheless, while bombs of every sort are prohibited to U.S. citizens, AR-15s are not. Has anyone told Congress? James McIntosh Lecanto Military members not takers Regarding John Reads April 9 letter stating in part, Those who served or are serving in the military are takers. I am not in the habit of responding to these types of letters, which may explain my delay in doing, but it would be further insulting to those who have served and are serving this country in uniform with great honor if I did not provide some comments in return. Mr. Read insults military spouses and their children who suffer tremendously from the absence of their loved one. By absence, for example, I am talking about troops who have served seven or eight tours in Iraq and Afghanistan while husband, or wife, or children somehow cope for years with not only the separation and financial hardships, but by a heartbreaking knowledge they may never see that person alive again. We veterans of the past (I am a three-decade military veteran who served in the Vietnam War) also suffered. Try to live on less than $150 a month with a wife and child. Experience what my wife did, having to raise children alone year after year as I deployed hundreds of times at overseas locations while she became the home mechanic, plumber, gardener, etc., etc., while holding down two part-time jobs to feed the children. Yeah, she was a taker. She took a lot in supporting our great country and deserves better comments from someone whose only experience is a vile, misguided keyboard. We served this country proud, my wife and children and I. We are America, we are military and we are darn proud of our commitment to freedom. We are not takers. We are givers.John Stewart, CMSgt, USAF (retired) Pine Ridge I n the 1970s, Big Media had more money than the boards of directors knew what to do with. Wall Street took notice, and, soon, consultants in gray flannel suits started showing up in newsrooms with binders full of advice about how to improve the product for the consumer. Publishers pretended to listen to these people so their line editors and beat reporters didnt have to. Like Orson Wells in the first reel of Citizen Kane, they believed a newspaper was a living, breathing being with a heart, a soul and a personality all its own. Cereal companies and widget factories made products for consumers. Newspapers had readers, and everybody knew that everyone from the chief bean counter to the print shop foreman worked for those readers and not for advertisers or, heaven forbid, the government. Bit by bit, publishers who thought of themselves as public servants got retired or fired or bought off, and the infrastructure that made it possible for Florida reporters to conduct the publics business without fear or favor began to crumble. A lot of people saw what was coming and knew they would not be able to live with it. Florida Public Radio Networks Susan Gage traded her microphone years ago for a career in massage therapy, leaving behind a resignation letter that might have been written by Paddy Chayefsky, the prophetic pen behind Howard (Im mad as hell, and Im not going to take this anymore) Beale, the fictional anchorman in Network. Others, like El Nuevo Herald Editor Angel Castillo and Norm Davis, the news director at WJXT and, later, WPLG, who lead the fight for cameras in the courtroom, developed successful law practices without pimping out their journalism Rolodexes to shady clients in search of reporters willing to put bylines on press releases. The road that Castillo and Davis paved continued, and last month ace investigative reporter Scott Hiaasen, a secondgeneration Miami Herald newsman, took off to clerk for a federal judge. He left just ahead of the wrecking ball thats about to come down on One Herald Plaza, the building in the Cinderella City that used to be Mecca for generations of the best journalists in the world. Florida Voices founder Rosemary Goudreau was one of them. She and Rosemary Curtiss poured their blood, sweat and personal savings into this valiant little website. But they could not compete in the whores of Babylon environment that Howard Troxler so eloquently described in his last months as a columnist for the thenSt Petersburg(now Tampa Bay) Times. Two years ago, Taxwatch issued a disturbing report on Floridas multimillion dollar communications departments. In these bloated fiefdoms, people receive salaries that cops, teachers and reporters can only dream about to crank out happy talk and obstruct the efforts of the handful of real reporters still on the job. The Taxwatch white paper was widely ignored, and we are no longer surprised when someone with a press card jumps the journalism ship and grabs a taxpayer-funded life preserver provided by a public official who is not a Friend of the First Amendment. But the really big bucks are in the private practice of journalism a newer and more pernicious brand of public relations involving the unabashed bullying and intimidation of newsrooms that no longer have a Perry White to deal with blowhards trying to justify fat fees for crisis communications. Against great odds, great stories still, somehow, continue to surface. It may be the end for Florida Voices, but as long as we have a First Amendment and people unafraid to use it, things will, somehow, be OK.

Programs like the Wounded Warrior Project defray some of that cost by helping military service members overcome physical, mental or emotional wounds. It is important Americans understand the responsibility they share in dealing with the high cost of war. The casualties of war not only include death and injury, but psychological and financial harm to service members and their families that lasts a lifetime. Crystal River native Josh White, a 23-year-old U.S. Marine and double amputee, took part this past week in the Soldier Ride bicycle trek from Washington, D.C., to Annapolis, Md. He was one of 50 wounded warriors who spent four days forming bonds while completing a physical challenge. The project has successfully changed the lives of many who completed the ride. Whites grandfather reports he is recovering remarkably well and recently learned to drive his girlfriends retrofitted van. He has been skiing and climbed an ice wall. However, his journey has only just begun. His days ahead include spending a lot more time at the rehabilitation center before starting the next phase of his life, whatever that may be. These types of injuries last a lifetime, but can be overcome. It is important for society to be accountable to Josh White and all the other service members and families who have lost loved ones or whose lives have been changed by injury. Americans should support and attend programs that recognize and honor military service members. From governments standpoint, it needs to follow through on the tenets laid out in President Obamas plan titled Strengthening our Military Families: Meeting Americas Commitment. In it, Obama proposes using federal resources to ensure military families and service members are provided emotional, psychological and consultative support both during and after their service to the country. They have sacrificed. So must we all when it comes to sharing in the cost of their recovery. THE ISSUE: Soldier Ride bicycle trek.OUR OPINION: Society shares role in service members recovery.

Manatee group ready to negotiate Honorable members of the city council of Crystal River and Andy (Houston): There is a simple solution to the dilemma Save Crystal River (SCR) has created by their illegal operations to date with the harvester in the bay that caused NOAA to independently question the Cedar Cove project funding and threatens to derail the (Southwest Florida) Water Management Districts grant approval on Tuesday. For the record, I did not tell Mr. Mercer that I would be at the meeting to oppose the grant. I gave Mr. Mercer, as I did the city council (through my email to Andy), the courtesy of informing everyone, that because of SCRs past illegal actions regarding harvester operations that I would oppose any future harvester work without verifiable monitoring by a competent third party to ensure that water quality laws would not be violated or other submerged aquatic plants and/or manatees would be harmed during the operations. This is something I believe SWFWMD was already contemplating as a due diligence measure in light of the documented past problems. For your convenience, I have included it again herewith and below. Specifically, I would humbly request that you please also review Ken Frink and Mark Edwards emails wherein Ken expressed his concerns to Mr. Jones about SCRs harvesters problematic harvester operations. In his email of March 8, Mr. Frink shared the following statement with Mr. Jones I am worried that the continuance of operation as Mark described is going to jeopardize both our contract and potential future funding from other sources. Also, for the record, SCR has yet to fully comply with their contract requirements to start harvesting under the county agreement. Unfortunately, good-faith efforts to resolve these concerns with SCR were terminated by SCR, forcing us to file our administrative challenge. This does not mean, however, that any of the future funding for bay cleanup has to be jeopardized so long as the proper monitoring is made an official part of those cleanup efforts. And, again for the record, we stand ready to reengage in good faith discussions with SCR at any time. In an effort to bring you more fully up to date with what has been going on, I want you to know that I have been working in good faith with Steve Lamb, in particular, on an acceptable monitoring plan being developed jointly with the water management district and DEP A monitoring plan that we hoped could have been implemented for SCRs project and a plan that could also be utilized with the Cedar Cove and WMD projects as well. Since I am copying Steve on this email, I sure he can let you know if anything I have said in this email is off base. My sense is that Steve very much wants to find a good-faith way forward, as I do to solving any remaining differences. The bays health is just too important to do this wrong. Please dont let efforts by those supporting harvesters to illegally remove sediments from the bay ruin lyngbya removal efforts where it can safely be removed. Having witnessed the bay deteriorate from the time of my first of many aboveand underwater visits starting in the 1960s, I will not stand idly by while the bays future is put in imminent danger by those claiming to save it. Please ask yourself what harm can come from ensuring that the bay is not harmed further in the name of cleaning it up. If the harvester operations can be done safely and legally, then there is nothing to lose to include the monitoring provisions. But if they cannot be used safely, there is everything to gain from knowing so before it is too late. We remain ready (as we have pleaded and stressed for years) to work with you on this component of bay clean up, as well as full restoration of Kings Bay through other appropriate means as well. Thank you for taking the time to hear both my expressions of my concern and suggestions for mutually agreeable solutions going forward. Our cooperative future is in your hands, the proverbial olive branch is in mine. Patrick M. Rose, CPM aquatic biologist executive director Save the Manatee Club Framers original intent matters more Re: Peter Poland letter, Context matters (April 16). There is no Section I, Article 8 in the Constitution, but there is an Article I, Section 8. The Constitution was ratified only because there would be a Bill of Rights protected rights for the people, and not government. The people gave government only enumerated powers. The right of the people, as individuals, to bear arms existed before the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights. We should not assume the Framers would agree to transfer this right to the States or national government. The sole purpose of the Bill of Rights was to affirm some protected individual rights would be off limits to government control, and to further enumerate the limited powers of the national government. No documents from the founding generation state the right to bear arms was a collective right to be associated only with the militia. Amendment IX states there are other rights that cannot be denied or disparaged beyond the protected individual rights stated in the Bill of Rights. James Madison and other delegates believed the rights theory was so universal it did not need any explanation or defense. And it still should not. There were also laws being enacted in the colonies demanding that all persons be armed; an example is the law of the 1623 Plymouth Colony. During the debates it was understood the militia was comprised of people who owned their weapons and had the individual right to bear arms. It was never suggested the States or national government needed power to disarm individuals. The founding generation considered and adopted many British laws because they respected constitutional tradition included within British history going back to a charter issued by King Henry I in 1100, the Petition of Rights in 1628, the Instrument of Government in 1653, the Humble Petition and Advice of 1657, the Habeas Corpus Act in 1679 and the English Bill of Rights in 1689. The 2nd Statute of Winchester (1285) codified the demand for Englishmen to bear arms to defend themselves and others, stating: ... it is commanded that every man shall have in his house arms for keeping the peace according to the ancient assize. ... The Statute of Winchester became the foundational document creating English law enforcement. However, the first clarification of armed citizen as a defense against a tyrannical government is found in James Harringtons The Commonwealth of Oceana (1656). Harrington called for an armed citizenry and denounced government by army. The Supreme Court stated in EX PARTE GROSSMAN, 267 U.S. 87 (1925): The language of the Constitution cannot be interpreted safely except by reference to the common law and to (267 U.S. 87, 109) British institutions as they were when the instrument was framed and adopted. The statesmen and lawyers of the Convention ... were born and brought up in the atmosphere of the common law. ... Where many historians and scholars err is in interpreting and analyzing the founding era language to mean the same as it does today; it doesnt always. The Constitution of most of our states, and of the United States, assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed. Thomas Jefferson I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians.

Pat Coles Citrus County Support Services Execution appropriate for this killer Soon after two firefighters were murdered in Webster, N.Y., there was yet another outcry for more gun control. But of course more gun laws would not have stopped this thing from murdering these courageous men. This person is a convicted felon; it is illegal for him to possess a firearm. Yet he did, but he didnt use a gun when he killed his grandmother, either. He just beat her to death with a hammer. If he had not been released on parole, those two first responders would still be around for their families. Execution, cruel and unusual punishment? Well so is beating one to death with a hammer.

Associated PressDAMASCUS, Syria A powerful bomb ripped through a bustling commercial district of Damascus on Tuesday, killing at least 14 people, shattering store fronts and bringing Syrias civil war to the heart of the capital for the second consecutive day. A day earlier, the Syrian prime minister narrowly escaped an assassination attempt after a car bomb struck near his convoy, a few miles from Tuesdays blast. The bombings appear to be part of an accelerated campaign by opposition forces to hit President Bashar Assads regime in the heavily defended capital. Tuesdays bombing struck the Marjeh neighborhood, a bustling commercial area near the Old City of Damascus, Syrian TV said. It described the explosion as a terrorist bombing, using the term Assads regime uses to refer to opposition fighters. The state news agency said 14 people were killed and 103 wounded in the attack. I heard a very loud bang and then the ceiling collapsed on top of me, said Zaher Nafeq, who owns a mobile phone shop in the Damascus Towers, a 23-floor office building. He was wounded in his hand and his mobile phone shop was badly damaged in the blast. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast, but car bombs and suicide attacks targeting Damascus and other cities that remain under government control in the third year of the conflict have been claimed in the past by the al-Qaida affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra group one of scores of rebel factions fighting to oust Assad. The target of Tuesdays attack was not immediately clear, although the explosion took place outside the former Interior Ministry building that was also damaged in the blast. Associated PressNEW YORK Bodies tensed and noses twitching, the dogs sniff the hunting ground before them: a lower Manhattan alley, grimy, dim and perfect for rats. With a terse command Now! the chase is on. Circling, bounding over and pawing at a mound of garbage bags, the four dogs quickly have rodents on the run. Come on ... I mean, tally ho! says one of their owners, Susan Friedenberg. In a whirl of barks, pants and wagging tails, dogs tunnel among the bags and bolt down the alley as their quarry tries to scurry away. Within five minutes, the city has two fewer rats. In a scrappy, streetwise cousin of mannerly countryside fox hunts, on terrain far from the European farms and fields where many of the dogs ancestors were bred to scramble after vermin and foxes, their masters sport trash-poking sticks instead of riding crops and say its just as viable an exercise for the animals centuries-old skills. Its about maintaining the breed type through actual work, says Richard Reynolds, a New Jerseybased business analyst and longtime dog breeder who might be considered the groups organizer if it would accept being called organized. Known with a chuckle as the Ryders Alley Trencherfed Society parse the acronym the rodenthunters have been scouring downtown byways for more than a decade, meeting weekly when weather allows. On a couple of recent nights, an eclectic group of ratters converged on an alley near City Hall about an hour after sunset. The lineups included two border terriers; a wire-haired dachshund; a Jack Russell terrier/Australian cattle dog mix; a Patterdale terrier, an intense, nononsense breed thats uncommon in this country; and a feist, a type of dog developed in the American South to tree squirrels. The terrier forays are an unofficial undertaking, and participants say theyre less about killing rats than giving dogs the experience of chasing them. The Health Department declined to comment on the hunts. Associated PressWASHINGTON After a storm of complaints, the Obama administration on Tuesday unveiled simplified forms to apply for insurance under the presidents new health care law. You wont have to lay bare your medical history, but you will have to detail your finances. An earlier version of the forms had provoked widespread griping that they were as bad as tax forms and might overwhelm uninsured people, causing them to give up in frustration. The biggest change: a five-page short form that single people can fill out. That form includes a cover page with instructions and another page if you want to designate someone to help you through the process. But the abridged application form for families starts at 12 pages, and grows as you add children. Most people are expected to take another option, applying online. The ease or difficulty of applying for benefits takes on added importance because Americans remain confused about what the health care law will mean for them. A Kaiser Family Foundation poll released Tuesday found 4 in 10 are unaware its the law of the land. Some think its been repealed by Congress. In fact, its still on track. And its a mandate, not a suggestion. The law says virtually all Americans must carry health insurance starting next year, although most will just keep the coverage they now have through their jobs, Medicare or Medicaid. The applications will start becoming familiar to consumers less than six months from now, on Oct. 1, when new insurance markets open for enrollment in every state. Most people already signed up in their employers plan dont need to bother with the forms. Filling out the application is just the first part of the process, which lets you know if you qualify for financial help. The government asks to see what youre making because Obamas Affordable Care Act is means-tested, with lower-income people getting the most generous help to pay premiums. Consumers who arent applying for financial help still have to fill out a fivepage form. Once youre finished with the money part, actually picking a health plan will require additional steps, plus a basic understanding of insurance jargon. Benefits begin Jan. 1, and nearly 30 million uninsured Americans are eventually expected to get coverage. Frog jump Associated Press Assemblywoman Cheryl Brown, D-San Bernardino, grimaces Tuesday as she prepares to jump her frog, Larry B, in the 39th Annual Capitol Frog Jump at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif. Tests link deadly ricin to Obama letters suspect TUPELO, Miss. Ricin has been found in a business once used by the man charged in the case of letters laced with the deadly poison being sent to President Barack Obama, according to a court document made public Tuesday that also said the substance was found on items the suspect dumped in a public trash bin. James Everett Dutschke, 41, was arrested Saturday by FBI agents at his home in Tupelo, Miss., and is being held without bond pending a preliminary and detention hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court in Oxford. The affidavit said that on April 22, Dutschke removed several items from his former martial arts studio in Tupelo, including a dust mask, which tested positive for ricin. Second body found after midair collision CALABASAS, Calif. A second body was found Tuesday at a rugged site in the Santa Monica Mountains where a small plane crashed and burned after a midair collision with another small plane that managed to make a belly landing on a golf course, authorities said. The plane went down Monday on a ridge in the mountain range north of Malibu near Calabasas, about 25 miles west of downtown Los Angeles. The crash of the singleengine Cessna 172 sparked a half-acre brush fire that was quickly controlled. The plane, which had taken off from Santa Monica airport, was nearly completely destroyed. Three people on the other plane, also a Cessna, suffered minor injuries as it landed wheels-up on a fairway at Westlake Golf Course, about six miles away. Stunned golfers said the single-engine plane hit a tree, spun around 180 degrees and came down surprisingly gently on the grass. Both planes were flying in an area without air traffic control services.

Israeli airstrike in Gaza kills one Palestinian GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip An Israeli aircraft attacked a motorcycle in Gaza on Tuesday, killing a top militant in a shadowy alQaida-influenced group who had been involved in a recent rocket attack on southern Israel. It was the first deadly airstrike in Gaza since a truce was reached with Palestinian militants last November, and is the most serious test yet of the Egyptian-brokered agreement. The strike came alongside the fatal stabbing of an Israeli settler in the West Bank, the first killing by a Palestinian of an Israeli in the territory in more than a year. The Israeli military said it killed Haitham Mishal, a jihadi militant involved in an April 17 rocket attack on the southern Israeli resort town of Eilat and other violence. Tuesdays airstrike showed strains in a fivemonth cease fire brokered by Egypt last November that ended eight days of exchanges between Israel and Hamas.

Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Basketball/ B3 Lottery, TV/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 Golf/ B4 Tennis/B4 Hudson wins 200th, hits HR in win over Nationals. / B2 S PORTS Section B WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY C HRONICLE Two county baseball teams left in postseason Citrus, Seven Rivers back in action tonight S EAN A RNOLD CorrespondentA pair of county baseball teams are set to compete in todays quarterfinal round of the state regional playoffs after surviving their respective district tournaments last week. District 6A-6 runner-up Citrus (13-14 overall) goes on the road to take on a Lake Weir club (15-12 overall) that has some timely momentum in winning three straight to claim the 6A-5 crown. It mounted a semifinal upset of top-seeded South Lake and scored five runs in the seventh inning versus Gainesville to overcome a 6-3 deficit in Thursdays final. The Hurricanes (of Marion County) are led both on the mound and at bat by 220pound sophomore right-hander Dakota Spivey, who has a 3.07 ERA, four complete games and 59 strikeouts in 57 innings pitched as well as a .447 batting average and 10 doubles at the plate, according to stats on www.Max Preps.com. Hes joined by senior lefty Bryan Prevatte (3.22 ERA, five complete games, 67 strikeouts in 63 innings) and sophomore middle infielder Trace Thornal (.378 batting). Citrus fell to Springstead and its senior ace Brandon Brosher by a score of 6-1 in their district final at Central after defeating West Port on Tuesday, but were on the verge of a pair of potentially gamechanging rallies as they loaded the bases, to no avail, in the fifth and sixth innings. A diving catch by Eagles junior center fielder Will Pagan his second such play of the game in the sixth took away a sure double and possibly three runs scored on a ball crushed to right-center by sophomore left fielder Alex Barbee. Strong on the mound for Citrus last week were junior starters Chad Dawson and Ben Wright and freshman left-handed reliever Austin Bogart who finished the regular season with a 1.29 ERA while leading the team with .462 on-base percentage, three home runs and eight doubles, but is currently limited to relief duties as he deals with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. But the Hurricanes which are led elsewhere by junior catcher Cody Bogart (team-high .373 batting, three home runs and seven runners caught stealing in regular season) will need to reduce some of its mistakes in the field to stay alive going forward. There are 32 teams in 6A playing right now, and were one of them, Citrus coach Brady Bogart said on his teams outlook. There are a lot of No. 1 seeds that are sitting home. Well go on the road with a good opportunity to win a ballgame. If we can come out and compete like we did (against Springstead), where we did what we wanted to on the mound and we put the ball in play and were aggressive at the plate for the most part, thats all you can expect. Last years senior-laden Citrus club beat Vanguard and South Lake in a couple of playoff thrillers before losing to powerhouse Melbourne in the regional finals. There are 32 teams in 6A playing right now, and were one of them. Brady Bogart Citrus High School baseball head coach. See BASEBALL / Page B3 Marlins Stanton out for a month Associated PressMIAMI Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton expects to be sidelined for about a month because of a strained right hamstring. Stanton underwent an MRI exam Tuesday and said the diagnosis was a grade-two strain on the one-tothree scale for the injury. He was hurt trying to beat out a grounder in Mondays 15-inning victory over the New York Mets, and was placed on the 15-day disabled list. The injury occurred just as last years NL slugging leader showed signs of emerging from a prolonged slump to start the season. He hit his first home run Saturday and two more Sunday. Awesome timing, Stanton said facetiously. Its a tough break. Pretty frustrating. Its just one of those freak things. Theres never a good time, but this was probably one of the worst times to do it. Last year Stanton hit 37 home runs despite missing 39 games because of injuries. Now the Marlins, already saddled with the worst record in the majors, will be without their best hitter for several weeks. If we could just erase all of April, that would be lovely, Stanton said. Hell be replaced in right field by 22-year-old Marcell Ozuna, who was recalled from DoubleA Jacksonville to make his major-league debut. When I received the call, I felt very excited, Ozuna said. I didnt sleep last night. With Stanton due to become eligible for arbitration after the season, theres already speculation the thrifty Marlins will trade him, and Ozuna would be the leading replacement candidate. The Dominican was hitting .333 with five homers and 15 RBIs in 10 games with Jacksonville. Hes a career .274 hitter in the minors who hit at least 22 home runs each of the past three seasons. Giancarlo Stanton Marlin slugger out a month. Big win for Big Game James Shields leads Royals to 8-2 victory over Rays Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. James Shields made a stellar first start against his former team, and Mike Moustakas hit a two-run homer to spur the Kansas City Royals to an 8-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. Shields (2-2) allowed a tworun homer to Matt Joyce in the first inning, but only allowed three more hits over the next six. He struck out seven in the kind of dominant performance the Royals were hoping for when they acquired him in December. The Royals trailed 2-1 in the sixth when Moustakas first homer of the year gave Kansas City the lead. The Royals added another run to chase Rays starter Alex Cobb (3-2), and three more off reliever Brandon Gomes in the seventh, shoring up the win for Big Game James. The victory snapped a twogame skid and allowed Kansas City to finish 14-10 in April, a dramatic improvement from the 6-15 mark the Royals carried into May a year ago. Tampa Bay dropped to 4-10 on the road this season. Kansas City has been looking for a legitimate No. 1 starter for years, and finally made the bold decision to acquire Shields and fellow right-hander Wade Davis from Tampa Bay to fill the void. Associated Press Tampa Bay Rays second baseman Ryan Roberts reaches to catch a line drive Tuesday during the fourth inning at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. STEPHEN E. LASKO /For the Chronicle Lecanto third baseman Amber Hopkins slides into home ahead of Gainesville catcher Makailah Browns tag to score Monday in a Class 6A regional semifinal softball game at Lecanto High School. The run represented the only one for Lecanto in a 2-1 loss. Gainesville scores run in seventh to advance past Lecanto 2-1 C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO Throughout its state tournament run, Lecantos softball team was able to do what it didnt do throughout the regular season play consistently and nearly error-free on defense. The Panthers combined that with a potent offense to win four straight postseason games. In Tuesdays Class 6A, Region 2 semifinal against visiting Gainesville, the formula was nearly the same, but it wasnt quite good enough. The Hurricanes took advantage of Lecantos one error in the field to score what proved to be the game-winning run in the top of the seventh for a 2-1 victory. We blinked, said Panthers coach Robert Dupler, his team finishing at 17-13 after reaching the regional semis for the second straight season. That one error didnt lose it for us. At this level, you blink and youre going to go home. With one out in the seventh, Gainesvilles Amanda Donovan lifted a fly ball to center that Lecanto outfielder Breanna Martin bobbled. Brittany Lewis was then safe on a grounder to first when Donovan beat first baseman Lilly Parrishs throw to second, and Stephanie Caudle followed with a base hit to score Donovan with the pivotal run. While a mistake in the field may have resulted in the winning run crossing the plate, it wasnt the difference in this game. Lecanto simply could not find a solution to Gainesville freshman pitcher Katie Chronister, who limited the Panthers to three hits without issuing a walk, striking out four. Shes 9-5 for us this season, said Gainesville coach Pete Marino, his team now 19-8, but shes pitched against all the good teams on our schedule, and shes been so tough. She never gets flustered. She can smell the victory. She takes it to the next level. Chronister did that just often enough against Lecanto. The Panthers had runners on base in just three innings, and their only run came in the second when Amber Hopkins reached base on an infield hit, advancing to second on a wild pitch and to third on a passed ball. She scored on Kelsie Lilleys sacrifice bunt. In the fourth, two-out singles by Hopkins and Lilley put runners at first and third before a ground out ended the threat. With one out in the seventh, Lilley reached base on an error, but the inning as well as the game and Lecantos season ended with a pair of ground outs. I was zoned in to what I was doing, Chronister said. I just try and relax and throw my pitches. I came in and treated them like every other team. She was certainly effective. The top three hitters in Lecantos batting order Amber Atkinson, Paige Richards and Amber Russo were a combined 0-for-9. Overshadowed by Chronisters performance was a strong pitching job by Lecantos Danielle Yant, who allowed one earned run on nine hits and one walk. She did not record a strikeout, an indication of how effective the Panther defense was behind her. Atkinson was particularly strong behind the plate, picking a runner off base to end a threat in the fourth inning then tossing the lead runner out at second on a sacrifice bunt attempt in the fifth. Atkinsons fifth-inning play was followed by a fly ball to right by Caudle that dropped in front of outfielder Sidney Holstein, but Holstein fired to second to get the force out. The Hurricanes got their first run on a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by Amanda Donovan in the second inning. Allie Wilkerson and Tiffany Donovan each had two hits for Gainesville. We put the ball in play, it just didnt go for us, Dupler said. Thats just softball. Thats a very good team. We played well and they played well.

B2 W EDNESDAY, M AY 1, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE M AJOR L EAGUEB ASEBALL Associated PressATLANTA Tim Hudson was a dual threat in his 200th career win, combining with Anthony Varvaro on a three-hitter while hitting a homer and a double to lead the Atlanta Braves to an 8-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night. Hudson (3-1) dominated the Nationals through seven innings, striking out six and walking two while giving up one run. One of the three hits he allowed was an infield single by Denard Span. Hudsons bat almost stole the night. He led off the second with a double to left field off Gio Gonzalez (2-2) and hit a fifth-inning homer off Zach Duke. Bryce Harper made a leaping attempt to catch the homer, but the ball bounced off his glove and over the wall. The Braves won their ninth straight against Washington, dating to last season. Andrelton Simmons had three hits, including a homer to lead off the first inning for Atlanta. Freddie Freeman had three singles and three RBIs, and Evan Gattis drove in two runs with two hits. Hudsons homer was the third of his career and first since June 20, 2011 against Toronto. The 37-year-old became the third active pitcher with 200 wins, joining Andy Pettitte (248) and Roy Halladay (201). Hudson is 200-105 in his career, including 92 wins while with Oakland from 1999-2004. Hudson allowed no hits until Tyler Moore led off the fifth with a double to the right-field corner. Moore scored from third on a groundout by Wilson Ramos. Gonzalez lasted only four innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and a season-high five walks. The left-hander has allowed five or more runs in three of his six starts this season, leaving his ERA at 5.34. It was the second start this season Gonzalez has pitched only four innings. AMERICAN LEAGUE Blue Jays 9, Red Sox 7 TORONTO Edwin Encarnacion hit an upper-deck homer in the fifth inning, then connected for a go-ahead home run in the seventh that sent the Toronto Blue Jays over the Boston Red Sox 9-7. The Blue Jays ended a four-game losing streak and avoided the first 18loss April in club history. David Ortiz homered, doubled and drove in four runs for Boston. Encarnacions pair of two-run shots marked the 10th multi-homer game of his career and second this season. Encarnacion became the 14th player to reach the upper deck in left field at Rogers Centre, tagging starter Jon Lester. Toronto trailed 7-6 when Encarnacion homered off Junichi Tazawa (2-1). Steve Delabar (2-1) got two outs for the win. Casey Janssen finished for his seventh save in as many chances. Yankees 7, Astros 4NEW YORK Hiroki Kuroda settled in after a rocky start to pitch four-hit ball through seven innings, Travis Hafner had three RBI singles and the New York Yankees used small ball to beat the Houston Astros 7-4. Jayson Nix had an RBI infield single and Brennan Boesch a run-scoring fielders choice for the banged-up Bronx Bombers, who bounced back from a 9-1 loss to the Astros on Monday. New York took advantage of Phil Humbers four wild pitches and a couple of close calls at first base to score its first four runs without an extra-base hit. Kuroda (4-1) threw 67 pitches in the first three innings, putting at least two runners on in each one. But just as he did in his previous start, he got into a better rhythm and retired 14 of his final 15 batters. Tigers 6, Twins 1DETROIT Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder each hit a two-run homer, Justin Verlander pitched seven strong innings and the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 6-1 for their fifth straight victory. Verlander (3-2) allowed a run and five hits. He struck out eight and walked two. Vance Worley (0-4) gave up six runs and 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings. Worley was acquired by the Twins in an offseason trade with Philadelphia and started Minnesotas season opener, but the right-hander has a 7.22 ERA. Cabrera opened the scoring with his fourth homer of the year, and Fielders seventh was part of a three-run fifth. Alex Avila also went deep for Detroit.NATIONAL LEAGUE Marlins 2, Mets 1 MIAMI Juan Pierre scored standing up on a wild pitch with none out in the ninth, and the Miami Marlins came from behind in the final inning for the second consecutive game to beat the reeling New York Mets 2-1. The Mets have lost a season-worst six games in a row. They were beaten Monday when Miami scored twice in the 15th inning to win 4-3. New Yorks Jeremy Hefner (0-3) took a 1-0 lead and a three-hitter into the ninth but couldnt get another out. Chris Coghlan singled to start the inning and advanced on a passed ball. When Juan Pierre bunted, Coghlan beat catcher Anthony Reckers throw to third, although the Mets argued that Coghlan overslid the bag. Cardinals 2, Reds 1ST. LOUIS Matt Holliday hit a two-run homer, Jaime Garcia continued his mastery of Cincinnati with eight strong innings and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Reds. Garcia (3-1) gave up one run on seven hits, struck out three and did not walk a batter. The left-hander improved to 7-0 in eight starts against Cincinnati at Busch Stadium and is 9-2 overall against them. He retired the last seven batters he faced and recorded 18 ground ball outs. Edward Mujica struck out the side in the ninth for his fifth save in as many chances. Bronson Arroyo (2-3) allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings for the Reds, whose win streak ended at three games. INTERLEAGUE Indians 14, Phillies 2 CLEVELAND Ryan Raburn homered twice for the second straight game and the Cleveland Indians hit seven home runs in all, routing the Philadelphia Phillies 14-2. The Indians set a major league high this season for homers in a game. Cleveland has won three in a row, outscoring opponents 33-5 in that span. Raburn hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning and a solo drive in the seventh. Carlos Santana, Mark Reynolds, Lonnie Chisenhall, Michael Brantley and Drew Stubbs also connected. The Indians fell one homer short of the franchise record of eight, set in 1997 and matched in 2004.

S COREBOARD C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE After getting by its rival for the second time this season in Thursdays 2A3 final, district champion Seven Rivers Christian (16-2 overall) stays in the county to take on Orlando Christian Prep (4-13-1) at Dazzy Vance Field in Homosassa. The Warriors turned a seventh-inning double play with the bases loaded and sophomore ace Cory Weiand (0.52 ERA, .528 batting in regular season) fanned 11 while tossing a complete game and adding a triple and double at the plate to lead his teams 5-4 win over the Saints. Weiand is expected to start today, with junior standout Adam Gage (.898 slugging, six home runs, 2.14 ERA in regular season) standing by in relief. Despite its superior record and home status, first-year Warriors head baseball coach Jim Ervin knows the challenge ahead. Its one game and youre out no matter what your record is, Ervin said. Were not taking anyone lightly. If we pitch well and hit the ball like we have the last few weeks, then we should be in good shape.

The league suspended Blackmon on Tuesday for the first four games of the 2013 season for his second violation in less than a year. He will not get paid for the four-week hiatus. Maybe more importantly, the suspension triggers language in his contract that voids future guarantees. Now, the Jaguars could cut him without having to pay about $10 million that remains on a four-year, $18.5 million contract. Its Blackmons third substance-related incident in less than three years. Blackmon, who caught 64 passes for 865 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie, will miss games against Kansas City, Oakland, Seattle and Indianapolis. Tebow clears waivers, now a free agentNEW YORK Tim Tebow has cleared waivers a day after being let go by the New York Jets, making the quarterback a free agent whos allowed to sign with any NFL team. Tebow was waived Monday after an unproductive season with the Jets, leaving his NFL future uncertain. It was expected he would clear waivers since a team would have had to pick up the remainder of Tebows contract, about $1.9 million over the next two seasons. The Jets must still pay the Broncos, from whom they acquired Tebow in March 2012, $1.53 million as a result of the trade agreement. Its uncertain if any NFL team will give Tebow an opportunity for next season, but two indoor league teams have offered him a job. NASCAR drivers hit 214 mph during Indy tire testINDIANAPOLIS A new environmentally friendly tire and cool morning temperatures had NASCAR drivers clocking speeds they werent even sure were possible Tuesday. On the first day of a closed tire test on Indianapolis historic 2.5-mile oval, Mark Martin wrote on Twitter that he had hit 212 mph in the morning. When Jeff Gordon saw the post, he asked his own team how fast he reached and said he was told 214. Drivers attributed the speed to almost perfect conditions in the morning good grip and a cool track. In the heat of the afternoon, Gordon said the tire wear increased and the speeds slowed. Clearly, though, those on the track were encouraged by the results. Gordon and Trevor Bayne both said they would embrace a night race at Indy, too. From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price is not concerned about potential discipline from Major League Baseball after his verbal spat with umpire Tom Hallion last weekend. Price accused Hallion of directing a profanity toward him during the Rays 8-3 win over the White Sox on Sunday. The AL Cy Young Award winner thought Hallion missed a pitch and exchanged words with the plate umpire while heading to the dugout after the seventh inning. After the game, Hallion vehemently denied Prices claim. Ill come right out bluntly and say hes a liar, he told a pool reporter. Price took to Twitter to dispute Hallions version of events and said before Tuesday nights game in Kansas City that he was upset with himself and never looked up until he heard Hallions voice. You cant talk to me that way, period, Price said. That was my whole thing. It had nothing to do with the strike zone. You dont talk to people that way. Price also took umbrage with being called a liar. Im not a liar, he said pointedly. Im not a liar, period. Two of Prices teammates, pitchers Matt Moore and Jeremy Hellickson, came to Prices defense from the dugout during the game. Hallion ejected Hellickson after he warned them to keep quiet. Moore and Hellickson joined Price in addressing the issue on Twitter, with Hellickson saying, Theres only one person lying about all this and his name starts with a T and rhymes with pom. Price and his teammates could be disciplined for violating MLBs social media policy, which forbids content that questions the impartiality of or otherwise denigrates a Major League umpire. Hallion also could be disciplined for initiating the incident. Asked if it would be awkward the next time Hallion umpired one of his games, Price replied: Not for me.

The deadline is May 10 for team commitment, with play starting on May 25. The suggestion was made to ask USTA coordinator Leigh Chack if it would be allowed to play the matches in the evening hours.

Singh cleared Tour drops its doping case against golfer Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. The PGA Tour dropped its doping case against Vijay Singh on Tuesday based on new information from the World Anti-Doping Agency, which said using deer antler spray is no longer prohibited because it contains such small amounts of a growth hormone factor. The bottom line is that given the change by WADA, we are dropping the case against Mr. Singh, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said Tuesday. Finchem said Singhs appeal of the sanctions was almost over when WADA, which had warned about the spray in February, told the tour Friday it no longer considers the use of deer antler spray to be prohibited except for a positive test result. WADA sent the tour a written statement Tuesday, indicating that the spray is known to contain small amounts of IGF-1. Based on this new information, and given WADAs lead role in interpreting the prohibited list, the tour deemed it only fair to no longer treat Mr. Singhs use of deer antler spray as a violation of the tours anti-doping program, Finchem said, reading from a statement. The decision ends a three-month saga that had players wondering what would happen to Singh, a 50-year-old Fijian with three major championships who is famous for the endless hours he spends on the practice range. Singh said in an interview with Sports Illustrated that he paid $9,000 last November for deer antler spray, hologram chips and other products from Sports With Alternatives To Steroids. The spray was said to contain IGF-1, an insulin-like growth hormone that is on the list of banned substances under the tours anti-doping policy. The tour said Singh provided a sample of the spray, and tests at a UCLA laboratory confirmed the presence of IGF-1. Even though Singh never tested positive for the banned substance, the tours policy says that admitting to use of such a substance is a violation, positive test or not. The tour penalized Singh on Feb. 19 Tuesday of the Match Play Championship, for which Singh was not eligible and Singh appealed a week later. Deer antler spray was also in the news before the Super Bowl, with a report connecting Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis to the product. The tour contacted WADA to confirm technical points when the agency clarified its position. WADA provided a written statement to the tour Tuesday. Were talking about a determination that was made by scientists at WADA that relate to the consumption, through deer antler spray, of a technically violative substance, IGF-1, Finchem said. But in looking at it, the scientists concluded it resulted in infinitesimal amounts actually being taken into the recipients body, amounts that couldnt be distinguished even if you had an accurate test with the amount that you might take into your body from milk, etc. He said a player taking enough IGF-1 to register a positive result is not possible because a positive reading means that youre surpassing a certain level. There hasnt been any level ever set. Associated Press Vijay Singh no longer faces any sanction for using deer antler spray. The PGA Tour said Tuesday it was dropping the case against the three-time major champion. Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said new information from the World Anti-Doping Agency indicates using deer antler spray is no longer considered prohibited.

Under the system that has given the college its Hard Work U ni ckname, students pay for their tuition, which was $17,600 for the 2011-12 academic year, by working on campus each semester for 15 hours per week, plus two 40 -hour work weeks. Students work multiple jobs to graduate debt-free at College of the Ozarks E MILYY OUNKER The Joplin Globe POINT LOOKOUT, Mo.A pril Gregory spends part of each week in a warm, sometimes stuffy laundry on the campus of College of the Ozarks, washing, drying and pressing clothes and linens. The Joplin Globe reported the college sophomore from Harrison, Ark., also maintains an off-campus job and has held summer jobs, but shes not complaining. Her jobs plus a new no-debt policy at her school will ensure she graduates in a few years without any debt to her name. Its definitely a lot of hard work, said Gregory, who is majoring in animal science and agriculture business. Youre just working for your education so you dont have to pay it off. Just to know that youre graduating and you can focus on getting a place to live, or a job, and you dont have to pay (your education) off you can focus on other things, like a car. We will have more freedom than being tied down to debt. During a time when most students are graduating from college with loan debt, College of the Ozarks, a private, fouryear school of nearly 1,400 students near Branson, is swimming against the tide. It has long discouraged student debt by not participating in any federal or state loan programs, and its president, Jerry C. Davis, recently announced the college will no longer honor private bank loans for students. Basically, what were saying is if you want to borrow money, go somewhere else, he said. Trust me; there are plenty of colleges that will loan you money. This is not one of them. Davis said in recent years, an average of 90 percent of the colleges students were graduating debt-free thanks in part to the schools debt policies. 200-page book digitized Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C.

SUCCESS Continued from Page C1 We found Abbys blog and fell in love with all of her ideas, and felt she could be an inspiration to others. Mullins presentation, titled Create & Design Curriculum Resources that Inspire & Engage, will be 75 minutes. Thats a very long time, Mullins said. Its a good thing I like to talk. Mullins, 30, of Lakeside Park, is a graduate of Dixie Heights High School. She earned a degree in psychology at the University of Kentucky, but decided soon after that she wanted to teach. She returned to school at Northern Kentucky University for her bachelors and masters degrees in education. Mullins taught kindergarten at Caywood in 2008 and 2009, then first grade for two years. This year she is the schools Title I teacher. She does a lot of data collection and analysis, along with math and reading interventions for students in all grades. She started blogging in 2008 with the creation of Babbling Abby, a blog mostly about her family that she describes on the site as Just my random thoughts about my lovely little life as an educator, mommy, and wife (or an outlet for my incessant need to gab!). In 2011, realizing she had been posting more and more education ideas, and also seeing that her blog was becoming very popular among educators, she decided she should create a separate teacher blog. Thats how the Inspired Apple at theinspired apple.blogspot.com was born. She got ideas for its design from other teacher blogs she found. One of her inspirations was Deanna Jump, a first-grade teacher in Macon, Ga., who started her own blog at www.mrsjumpsclass.blogspot. com three years ago. Abbys blog is not only a great resource for teachers, but it has such a sweet spirit about it, Jump said. When you read her blog, you feel like she is having a conversation with you. Mullins tries to post something at least once a week. Ideas range from how to create a Parts of Speech Center for helping students learn nouns, verbs and adjectives, to fun art activities for the holidays. She receives a lot of emails daily from her followers and tries to answer every one of them. While she thoroughly enjoys where she is at now in her career, Mullins said her ultimate education goal is to be a school administrator: Im not sure how blogging will get me there, but its what I would like to do. Whenever she is ready to pursue it, Caywood Principal Kelly Conner has no doubt Mullins will succeed. From the first day I met her, I could tell she was a topnotch educator with a lot of passion in all she does, Conner said. She is definitely one person I would recommend to be an administrator. She is very much a leader. Mullins will be one of a dozen extraordinary educators presenting in Chicago. Her talk will be attended by as many of the expected 2,000 attendees as want to sign up for it. Jump, who gives talks herself, expects it will be a popular choice. I think she will draw huge numbers, Jump said. Those who attend wont be getting a lecture. They will get the real Babbling Abby theyve come to love through the blogosphere. It will be a lot of interacting between me and the audience, Mullins said. Im very nervous, but I do hope people will pick me. ledger on their website last week, making it available for the first time for all readers, students and scholars. This is a record of everything Fitzgerald wrote, and what he did with it, in his own hand, said Elizabeth Sudduth, director of the Ernest F. Hollings Library and Rare Books Collection. During a recent visit to the librarys below-ground rare-book vault, Sudduth took the original 200-page book out of its clamshell protective cover. The ledgers yellowed pages with Fitzgeralds elegant, measured cursive strokes are a throwback to life before computer spreadsheets. The ledger shows Fitzgeralds tally of earnings from his works, the most famous of which is the novel The Great Gatsby. The ledger lists his many short stories, books and adaptations for stage and screen. With the May 10 release of a new Gatsby movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Sudduth said library officials expect an upswing in interest in its Fitzgerald collection. The ledger will be on display at the library for about a month starting May 6, Sudduth said. The librarys Fitzgerald collection is considered the worlds most comprehensive, with more than 3,000 publications, manuscripts, letters, book editions, screenplays and memorabilia.

But administrators had also been noticing a slight uptick in the number of private loans being taken out to help cover college costs, he said. We dont think thats a good idea because debt is bad, he said. We would not be doing these kids a favor by letting them get into debt. You could argue its a disservice. Youre just giving them another brick to swim with when they get out. Under the system that has given the college its Hard Work U nickname, students pay for their tuition, which was $17,600 for the 2011-12 academic year, by working on campus each semester for 15 hours per week, plus two 40-hour work weeks. They fill a variety of roles, including upkeep of the scenic campus, staffing the colleges restaurant and lodge, operating the oncampus laundry business, labor of new on-campus construction and tending to the schools dairy and beef farms. Any remaining tuition balances not covered through the work education program are filled in with a students grants, if eligible, and a scholarship from the college, which boasts on its website that students should owe absolutely no cash for tuition. Its better for students to work than it is for students to go in debt, Davis said. The college also has a summer program for eligible students to work 12 40hour work weeks at their campus job to cover the costs of room and board fees, which total $5,900. Davis said fewer than 100 students are expected to be affected next year by the new policy excluding private loans, which they generally used toward room and board. To assist with the transition, he said the college will increase the number of slots in its summer work program from about 490 to roughly 550. At least theres going to be one college to stand up and say: Theres a better way to do this, he said. And its called work. Amanda Hart, a sophomore from Jefferson City who is majoring in elementary education, works on the guest experience team, greeting visitors to the college lodge and also taking responsibility for its cleaning. She said that work, plus a scholarship and her college savings, cover her tuition, while she hopes to be accepted into the summer work program this year to pay for her room and board. Although she is still a few years away from graduation, she said she expects to obtain her bachelors degree without incurring any debt and that was a major reason she chose College of the Ozarks. I wanted to be able to go wherever there was a need (for teachers) and not worry about making enough to pay off student loans, she said. Ruben De La Rosa, a senior from Pleasant Hill, expects to graduate next month with a degree in criminal justice with an emphasis in law enforcement. Having worked two campus jobs, as both a server and a student manager in the colleges restaurant, Dobyns Dining Room, he said he plans to take next year off to work and save some additional cash before pursuing his goal of working in the CIA. De La Rosa didnt choose College of the Ozarks because of its work program or debt-free policies, but he said he now considers himself lucky to be on the cusp of graduation without any debt weighing him down. Truth be told, its a very big blessing to be here, he said. As Im getting closer to graduation, its such a relief to know Im only taking care of my own personal stuff (financially). Were like 150 steps ahead of the average college student. At other schools in the region, loans are still very much a part of the average college students life. A report released last fall by the Project on Student Debt noted students in the class of 2011 who borrowed in college graduated with an average of $26,600 in loan debt, up from $25,250 the year before.

I]Z\025B^c^\025EV\\000Z\234 dd`\025d[\025HiViZh Time TravelClocks Change the World If you want to know where you are or where you are going, you need a clock. That sounds weird, doesnt it? Why would anyone need a clock to get around? On land, we can look at landmarks. But on unfamiliar land, on the sea, in the air and in space, we need an accurate clock to be sure we can find our way, or navigate The Mini Page talked with experts from the Smithsonian Institution to find out what telling time has to do with navigation. Where on Earth are we? To help figure out where everything is, people drew imaginary lines up and down and all around the globe. The equator is an imaginary line around the middle of the Earth. Lines of latitude are imaginary lines that circle the globe to the north and south of the equator. Latitude tells us how far north or south we are. Imaginary lines that go through the North and South poles are called lines of longitude (LAWN-ji-tood) Longitude helps us figure out how far east or west we are. A hemisphere is half of the globe. The Northern and Southern hemispheres are on each side of the equator. The Eastern and Western hemispheres are on each side of the prime meridian. Needing a better way For thousands of years, people navigated by the sun, moon, planets and stars. On cloudy days, travelers had to guess where they were. Sailors often stayed close to land so they wouldnt get lost. Explorers in the middle of the ocean took dangerous risks and often wandered off course. About 300 years ago, the need for accurate navigation tools grew. Europeans needed to travel to and from their colonies, and trade was growing. It was even more important that ships didnt get lost at sea. It was no longer good enough for ships to arrive at distant lands whenever they could. People needed to be able to rely on ships arriving at an exact port at a fairly exact time. In the 1700s, people had mapped only about half the planet with much detail. They needed safer, more accurate navigation tools. A new exhibit, Time and Navigation, opened at the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., April 12. The Air and Space Museum and the National Museum of American History joined forces to create this permanent exhibit.art courtesy Smithsonian Institution The equator is at 0 degrees latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees north latitude. The South Pole is at 90 degrees south latitude. art courtesy Smithsonian Institution People marked longitude by drawing an imaginary line called the prime meridian at 0 degrees.

Unlike other stars, it always appears in the same place in the night sky. It is a lot harder to figure out longitude. There is no fixed point in the east or west to navigate from. Sailors could estimate their longitude by checking the position of the moon and stars. But this method did not always work well.Clock troubles People knew that the Earth takes \022\024\000HOURS\000TO\000ROTATE\016\000ITH\000THAT\000FACT\f\000 they could figure out longitude. All they needed were two accurate clocks. One clock would tell the time at their home port. The other would tell the local time at sea. By comparing the times, navigators could tell how far east or west theyd gone. The only trouble was, in the early 1700s, there were no clocks that could keep accurate time at sea. \000\000#LOCKS\000WITH\000SPRINGS\000DIDN\007T\000WORK\000 at sea either. Depending on the temperature and humidity, the metal in the springs expanded, or it contracted becoming tighter.

In the mid-1700s, inventors came up with the first accurate clocks for the sea, or chronometers (kruhNAHM-uh-ters). A matter of seconds Navigators needed a clock that could tell time to the exact second. Every minute the clock was off could cause a mistake of about 20 miles in navigating. Most land clocks worked with a pendulum that swung back and forth in an exact rhythm. But at sea, the wind and waves caused the pendulum to break rhythm. Pendulum clocks never worked at sea because of the motion of the ship. art courtesy Smithsonian InstitutionTo find out where they are in the open ocean, navigators can observe the stars, planets, moon and sun.

They could figure out their position with an accurate clock and a tool called a sextant They could navigate by spotting landmarks below. But fog and clouds would block out landmarks and make taking a position with a sextant impossible in the air. In addition, flying is a lot faster than sailing. On a ship, if it took 20 minutes to figure out your position, IT\000WAS\000NO\000BIG\000DEAL\016\000OU\000WOULDN\007T\000HAVE\000 traveled far in that time. But in a plane, by the time you spent 20 minutes figuring out where you were, you could be many miles off course. At sea, navigators needed to know time to the second. Airplane pilots measured time to a fraction of a second with radio signals.Air time Pilots set their watches to a radio signal. Have you watched old movies when the pilots get the COMMAND\f\000h'ENTLEMEN\f\000SYNCHRONIZE\000 YOUR\000WATCHESv\037\000ORLD\000AR\000\PILOTS\000 synchronized \000\b\OR\000 adjusted, their watches to the right time by listening to radio signals. Designing a watch accurate to the second was a hard task. With normal watches, the second hand stops each time the person resets the watch. Pilots cant afford to have watches off by several seconds.Space time Objects traveling in space fly thousands of miles an hour. In order to navigate, spacecraft need to use clocks that are accurate to billionths of a second. They use atomic clocks that are based on radiation inside an atom, which vibrates at an exact rhythm. Spacecraft rely on radio signals from Earth to navigate, just as airplane pilots do. art courtesy Smithsonian Institution Towers on the ground transmit radio signals to planes. A U.S. naval officer invented a watch that pilots could synchronize with radio signals.GPS We use our knowledge of time to track objects in space. We can do the opposite, too. We can use satellites to figure out where we are on Earth. This is how the GPS or Global Positioning System, works. Today, 31 GPS satellites orbit the %ARTH\016\000E\000NEED\000AT\000LEAST\000\022\024\000FOR\000THE\000 system to work.

The GPS device compares the times that the different signals arrive at the location on Earth. It measures the fraction of a second it takes for the signals to reach the ground. Then the GPS receiver can figure out the distance to the satellites and its own location on Earth.The Mini Page thanks Andrew Johnston, geographer, National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution, and Carlene Stephens, curator of clocks and time, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution, for help with this issue.Add`\025i]gdj\\000]\025ndjg\025cZlheVeZg\025[dg\025hidg^Zh\025 VWdji\025Vcn\025`^cY\025d[\025igVkZa#\025L]Vi\025ineZ\025d[\025 XadX`\025Yd\025ndj\025i]^c`\025lVh\025jhZYNext week, The Mini Page celebrates Mothers Day. art courtesy Smithsonian InstitutionGPS satellites transmit time and orbital data to receivers on Earth.

Many know that in the summer of 1961, Elvis filmed Follow That Dream in our Historic Citrus County Courthouse. But how many know Floridas film industry began in the early 1900s and rivaled that of Hollywood? Before World War I, Jacksonville had more than 30 studios and 1,000 actors and extras, and Florida was referred to as Hollywood East. However, unfavorable state and local policies soon discouraged the booming industry and off to California the studios went. This exhibition interprets that early history of the film industry in Florida including the Whos Who of Florida Films, Filmed in Alachua and Hernando Counties, Movies Shot in Marion County, Films in Citrus County, Central and West Florida-made Movies, The Separate Cinema, Movie Palaces of Florida and the Future for Film in Florida. Doc Hollywood with Michael J.

Friendship Quilters Guild Special to the ChronicleThe Citrus County YMCA is jumping into high gear this summer with a full-throttle summer camp that will keep kids entertained all day. YMCA Program Director Sara Bargiel has developed a 10-week summer program for youths and teens to continue to stimulate childrens minds after school is out, introduce them to new experiences, as well as keep them physically active. This summer, the Y is excited to announce a youth summer camp for ages 5 to 11. With themes such as Time Travelers, Shipwrecked, Welcome to the Outback and the Y Factor, kids are sure to experience an exciting adventure each week. Camp activities include bowling, swimming, miniature golf, recreational activities, field trips, sports, crafts, speakers and fun. This summer, the YMCA is introducing a new camp for teens. Camp EPIC, or Encouraging People to Impact their Community, is a camp designed for ages 12 to 14. Camp EPIC provides teens the opportunity to conduct local volunteer service projects and develop skills and talents that can be utilized for their future endeavors, as well as learn the importance of social responsibility. Focus has been expanded to provide a good connection to education and incorporate health and wellness activities. The summer program will provide children activities and tools that they can use at the Y and at home to improve their health and wellness. To accommodate higher anticipated enrollment this year camps are at Crystal River Middle School, Lecanto Middle School and Pleasant Grove Elementary School. The camp day runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and camp sites offer beforecamp care, from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., and after-camp care, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at no additional charge.

C6 W EDNESDAY, M AY 1, 2013 C ITRUS C OUNTY (FL) C HRONICLE E NTERTAINMENT P HILLIP A LDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn. Katey Sagal, an actress and singer-songwriter, said, I think we respond well when we do something well. At the bridge table, we score well when, inter alia, responder rebids well our theme this week. Look at the North hand. What should North bid on the second round? When the auction begins like this, if responder rebids two hearts, it announces weakness (69 points). If he jumps to three hearts, he shows game-invitational values (10-12 points). This hand, though, is worth game. North should jump to four hearts. After West leads the club queen, how should South plan the play? With a different hand, North would have other ways to force to game; we will look at the most important later this week. South has four losers in his hand, one in each suit. He cannot avoid conceding tricks to the missing aces, so he must do something about the club loser immediately. Declarer must discard a club from either hand. There are two ways to do this. The better is to win the first trick in his hand with the king and to play a spade to dummys jack. East takes his ace and returns a club, but declarer wins with dummys ace and discards his third club on the spade king. Then it is time to draw trumps as quickly as possible. Alternatively, declarer can win the first trick on the board and lead the diamond jack. West wins this or the next diamond and plays another club. South takes this in his hand and continues diamonds to ditch dummys last club. He then ruffs his last club on the board and turns to trumps.

The gals yakked until late at night, so I was the first one up every morning. Im an early riser anyway. I like reading the newspaper with my breakfast, so when Id get up, Id go outside and pick up the paper and bring it in. My wife says it was wrong to get the paper before our hostess. Anyway, after a couple of days, the school friend seemed in a snit about something, and my wife says that was the reason, even though she never said so when I asked whether something was bothering her. Recently, we were invited to stay with different friends for a weekend, and I am getting no end of hassle from my wife to make sure I wait for our hosts to finish with the paper. I figure Ill just go out for coffee somewhere and buy a paper. My wife says it would be rude to take off at breakfast. Is this idiotic or what? California Dear California: It would be rude to read the paper in such a way that your hosts must wait for you to finish, or that you drag sections of it all over the house and fill in all the clues to the crossword puzzle. But there is nothing wrong with reading the paper early, putting it back together nicely and having it available to your hosts when they awaken. You can resolve this simply enough. When you arrive, inform your hosts that you are an early riser, and ask whether they would mind if you fetch their paper and read it with your coffee, promising to keep it in pristine condition for when they are ready to read it. You also could offer to go to the local coffee shop and bring back coffee and muffins (and a newspaper) for everyone else. Dear Annie : I need to vent. My daughter, my 8year-old granddaughter and I recently went to a Broadway show. After we were seated, a woman, her young daughter and her mother sat next to us. The woman was rather large, but instead of taking the aisle seat, she gave that to her mother and sat next to me. She was practically sitting on top of the chair arms due to her size and was taking up part of my space. At the end of the show, she told us we would need to climb over her because her knees hurt and she couldnt move yet. Im sure her knee problems are due to her size. This woman looked to be in her mid-30s. At this rate, she might not live long enough to see her daughter reach adulthood. Dont you think she should have taken the aisle seat? Loved the Show, Disliked the Seat Dear Loved : It seems logical that the person with the most difficulty moving would prefer the aisle seat, but perhaps the womans mother insisted on taking it. When stuck in these situations, there isnt much you can do other than show tolerance for two hours. Dear Annie: I had to laugh when I read Frustrated Cooks letter. I remember how my parents battled with me over eating broccoli when I was a kid. I was forced to finish it, so I would wash small bites down with my sweet tea, as if they were pills. Im 48 now, and broccoli is one of my favorite foods. However, I can no longer tolerate sweet tea. I think texture is often the issue, as it was for me. When I had kids, I never forced them to eat what I fixed. I gave them the option of making themselves a peanut butter sandwich if they did not want to eat my meals, but I also did not prepare a separate dish for them.

Death of man, 90, ruled a homicideThe death of an elderly Citrus County man following an encounter with Citrus County Sheriffs deputies has been ruled a homicide. According the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, on March 26, deputies responded to a residence in Inverness regarding a 90year-old man, John Bradford,who had armed himself with a gun and was threatening to harm himself and others. Deputies arrived on sceneto find Bradfords wife saying he was hurting her and Bradford himself holding a firearm. As deputies tried to apprehend Bradford using non-lethal methods, a struggle ensued and Deputy Russ Howard and Bradford fell to the ground. Bradfords weapon was reportedly secured and it was then discovered that Bradford was injured due to the fall. He was transported to Citrus Memorial hospital and later died as a result of complications from surgery performed due tohis injury, according to a statement by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. The medical examiner has ruled his death a homicide due to the complications that resulted from the interaction with the deputies. The sheriffs office contacted FDLE to perform an investigation due to the ruling of the medical examiners office. The sheriffs office is conducting an administrative review of the incident,as well.Girls death still under investigationCitrus County Sheriffs detectives continue to investigate the death of 2year-old Aliyah Marie Branum, of 1605 N.

Among the potential options being readied for him: weapons and ammunition for the Syrian rebels. Despite such planning, Obama appealed for patience during a White House news conference, saying he needed more conclusive evidence about how and when chemical weapons detected by U.S. intelligence agencies were used and who deployed them. If those questions can be answered, Obama said he would consider actions the Pentagon and intelligence community have prepared for him in the event Syria has crossed his chemical weapons red line. There are options that are available to me that are on the shelf right now that we have not deployed, he told reporters packed into the White House briefing room. Beyond lethal aid to the rebels, several government agencies are also drafting plans for establishing a protective no-fly zone over Syria and for targeted missile strikes, according to officials Obama issues veiled threat on Syria President says chemical weapons use might prompt review of other options ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerRoy Pistone thought he would be the last person to receive a state honor. But thats exactly what happened at the recent Florida School Nutrition Association Annual Conference when Pistone was named state Director of the Year. I was shocked, said Pistone, who heads up the Citrus County School Districts food and nutrition services. I thought they got the wrong name. He was oblivious to his nomination by Gwen McCartneyFreier, finance specialist for food and nutrition services. In her recommendation she wrote, Since coming on board in our district four and a half years ago, this individual has made a point to provide information and education to our managers and staff on the reason why we do what we do. He has a way of thinking outside of our traditional food service program box that entices students to be more active in what we have to offer. Thinking outside the box is exactly what Pistone does by focusing on details and food quality with the goal of student satisfaction within a nice dining experience for our students. He connected the students experience to a consumers practice at a restaurant. If the customer is displeased with the appearance of the interior of a restaurant, theyre unlikely to become a patron. Therefore, Pistone is leading the renovation of all 18 school cafeterias. Some high schools have been modeled to resemble food courts. A la carte areas are in three of four middle schools. We have also added upgraded serving lines, paintings, student pictures and artwork in several school dining areas, McCartney-Freier said in her nomination of Pistone. When students have input in naming their cafeteria or see pictures of themselves and their peers hanging in the facilities, they take a little more pride in their surroundings. Pistone believes that once students are prideful of their cafeteria, they are more open to eat one of the USDA-regulated meals. For too long, the school food services received a bad reputation, Pistone said. They thought it was mystery meat that we served. That is so far from the truth. Any items that we bring in to serve our students have been student-tested and approved, Pistone said. When we bring in an item, it must have a 75 percent approval rating for us to put it on our menus. Pistone credited his team. The goal is to be the best in the state of Florida and Beyond mystery meat Head of food services for county schools recognized for lunchroom innovations MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCitrus County School District Food Services Director Roy Pistone is pictured above at the Lecanto High School cafeteria where a food court concept is incorporated. Pistone was recently named Florida Outstanding Director of the Year in food services. He said the food court concept that the three public high schools are incorporating is designed to imitate what many teens see in shopping mall food courts. Chronicle staffOn Thursday, the 62nd annual National Day of Prayer, Americans across the nation are invited to stop and offer prayers for the nation and their communities. Every year on National Day of Prayer, always the first Thursday in May, prayer events take place all across the nation, from prayer breakfasts, Bible reading marathons, concerts of prayer, rallies, church prayer vigils, student flagpole gatherings and observances held in sports stadiums. Here in Citrus County, two prayer gatherings will take place at noon Thursday, May 2, one outside the Inverness Government Center, 212 W. Main St., Inverness, and the other at the gazebo behind City Hall in Crystal River. This year the theme is Pray For America and the scripture reference is In His name the nations will put their hope (Matthew12:21). The public is invited to participate in this nondenominational event.

Man charged in deadly festival shootingWILLISTON A 19-year-old man is accused of shooting five people during the annual Crab Festival in Williston. Authorities arrested Devonte Ocasio on Monday during a traffic stop in nearby Marion County. He was taken to Levy County, where he was charged with attempted murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Additional charges are pending. The Gainesville Sun reported 36-year-old Barry Barney of Gainesville died from his injuries while being airlifted to the hospital. Levy County Sheriffs officials declined to release the names of the other victims. Authorities said they fear retaliation because they believe the shooting was motivated by some type of drug-related crime. The shooting happened about 8 p.m. Saturday as a huge crowd gathered in Williston. Officials said they arent ruling out the possibility of a second shooter.Cops: Woman caused crash to kill herself, boyCLEARWATER A St. Petersburg woman faces attempted murder charges after telling police she caused a car crash to try to kill herself and a 2-year-old boy. The Tampa Bay Times reported the crash happened about 10:30 a.m. Monday in Clearwater. Police said 39-year-old Tiffany Drake told responding officers that she drove her vehicle into the rear of a Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority vehicle. Drake and the child didnt appear injured, but the boy was taken to the hospital for observation. The other driver received minor injuries and his passenger was taken to the hospital with more serious injuries. Police said Drake stepped on the gas and reached speeds of up to 50 mph before intentionally ramming the other car. The relationship between Drake and the child was not disclosed.Bill eliminates mental retardation in state lawTALLAHASSEE The Florida Legislature has unanimously passed a bill that removes the term mental retardation from state law and replaces it with intellectual disability. The House on Tuesday voted 119-0 for the bill (SB 142) that was already unanimously passed by the Senate. The measure also replaces mentally retarded and retarded with intellectually disabled. The bill now goes to the governor to be signed into law. The change would not affect the content or effect of any laws. Proponents of the bill have said the word retarded is outdated and has become offensive. Forty-three states have already taken steps to remove the word retarded from their laws. President Obama signed a law in 2010 striking use of the term in federal policy.Measure would require care for infants surviving abortionTALLAHASSEE Florida lawmakers have sent to Gov. Rick Scott a bill that would require medical care for newborns who survive botched abortions. The measure (HB 1129) won final passage on a 38-0 Senate vote Tuesday. It would penalize abortion providers who dont provide medical care for infants born alive despite attempted abortions. Abortion-rights supporters said such a scenario is extremely rare. But some abortion opponents have said its not such a rarity. A woman who claimed she was born after her mother tried to abort her appeared before a legislative panel to support the bill. The measure loomed as the major abortion-related bill for the 60-day legislative session ending Friday. A bill that would ban abortions based solely on an unborn childs gender or race isnt making headway in the Senate.George Zimmerman wont seek immunity hearingSANFORD The former neighborhood watch leader charged with fatally shooting a Florida teenager told a judge Tuesday he agrees with his defense attorneys decision not to seek an immunity hearing under the states Stand Your Ground self-defense law. Under questioning from Circuit Judge Debra Nelson, George Zimmerman repeatedly said yes to a series of questions asking if he was aware he was giving up the right to a hearing before his second-degree murder trial in June. A judge would have sole discretion in an immunity hearing to decide if Zimmerman is exempt from culpability in the shooting. A jury would make the determination in the murder trial. familiar with the planning. However, the officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the internal deliberations, stressed that Obama had not yet decided to proceed on any of the plans. As Obama raised the prospect of deeper U.S. involvement, Hezbollahs leader said Tuesday that his Iranian-backed militant group stood ready to aid Syrian President Bashar Assad. And new violence in Syria hit the capital of Damascus, as a powerful bomb ripped through a bustling commercial district, killing at least 14 people. Mindful that any military intervention in the combustible Middle East would be complicated and dangerous, Obama hinted the U.S. would probably avoid taking action unilaterally. Part of the rationale for building a stronger chemical weapons case against Assad, Obama said, is to avoid being in a position where we cant mobilize the international community to support what we do. Obama has resisted calls to expand U.S. assistance beyond the nonlethal aid the government is providing the rebels. That has frustrated some allies, as well as some U.S. lawmakers, who say the deaths of 70,000 Syrians should warrant a more robust American response. Tuesdays wide-ranging news conference coincided with the 100-day mark of Obamas second term. Its a stretch that has been defined by the defeat of gun control legislation he supported, as well as the continuation of old disputes that marked the presidents first four years in office, including the Syria conflict and the launching of his controversial health care overhaul. Asked if he still had the juice to get legislation approved, he smiled and paraphrased Mark Twains famous line, saying, Rumors of my demise may be a little exaggerated at this point. Another issue that frustrated Obama in his first term resurfaced when he was pressed about the hunger strike at Guantanamo Bay, the detention center he promised to close but hasnt been able to. Obama said he would make another run at it, though he was vague about how. Im going to go back at this, he said. Ive asked my team to review everything thats currently being done in Guantanamo, everything that we can do administratively, and Im going to re-engage with Congress to try to make the case that this is not something thats in the best interest of the American people. The president also took questions for the first time about the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings that rattled the nation two weeks ago. He defended the FBIs 2011 investigation into Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the suspect who was killed, a probe that resulted in the bureau finding no evidence he was a threat to the United States. Russia has since provided more information about Tsarnaev and his mother both ethnic Chechens that could have resulted in a more rigorous FBI investigation. Obama pointedly said that Moscow has been cooperative since the Boston bombings. He made no reference to information being held back ahead of the attack, but he did say, Old habits die hard. There are still suspicions sometimes between our intelligence and law enforcement agencies that date back 10, 20, 30 years, back to the Cold War. Russia has also stymied U.S. efforts at the United Nations to mount pressure against Assads embattled government in Syria. Assad has refused to let a U.N. team into the areas near Damascus and Aleppo where chemical weapons are believed to have been used. The White House says the team is standing by and could deploy to Syria within 48 hours if Assad allows it in. Given the unlikelihood of Assad giving the inspectors access, the U.S. says it is also seeking answers on its own and through international partners. Polling suggests warweary Americans are reluctant to see the U.S. get involved in another conflict in the Middle East. A CBS News/New York Timespoll out Tuesday shows 62 percent of Americans say the country does not have a responsibility to intervene in the fighting in Syria, while 24 percent say the government does have that responsibility. While Obama insists all options are on the table when it comes to dealing with Syria, the White House has little appetite for putting American soldiers into combat there. Even Arizonas Republican Sen. John McCain, who has pressed for aggressive U.S. involvement, has said putting U.S. troops on the ground in Syria would be a mistake. Underscoring the danger that could await, the leader of Lebanons Hezbollah militant group said Tuesday that Syrian rebels will not be able to defeat Assads forces by themselves, suggesting the governments friends, including his Iranian-backed group would intervene on the government side if necessary. Hezbollah and Iran are close allies of Assad, both accused by rebels of sending fighters to assist Syrian troops. In Washington, Obama also took questions Tuesday about the immigration debate on Capitol Hill. Obama said that while a bill crafted by eight senators four Democrats and four Republicans was not the legislation he would have written, I do think that it meets the basic criteria that I laid out from the start. Obama also defended the implementation of the health care overhaul he signed in his first term, though he said there will be glitches and bumps as the sweeping law is fully implemented. He cited the unveiling Tuesday of simplified forms for people applying for insurance as an example of the administration trying to make the rollout of the laws final stages smoother.

From staff reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Utility to host stockholders PATFAHERTY Staff writerDuke Energy will have its first annual shareholders meeting Thursday since merging with Progress Energy and becoming the largest electric utility in the United States with $19.6 billion in revenue. In his letter to stockholders regarding the meeting in Charlotte, N.C., Duke CEO-ChairmanPresident James E. Rogers listed the issues up for vote. These included election of the board of directors and approval of executive compensation on an advisory basis. For 2012, Rogers total compensation was valued at approximately $8.7 million. Bill Johnson, former Progress Energy CEO, who became Dukes CEO after the merger and was quickly ousted, got approximately $28.6 million and former Duke/Progress executive Jeffrey Lyash got approximately $7.3 million About 200 stockholders are expected to attend the meeting, which will be formal in nature to meet Security and Exchange Commission requirements. As for information discussed, its essentially a recap of the annual report that is out there on our website. 2012 was a good year so it is a mainly positive meeting, Duke spokesperson Sterling Ivey said. After the pure SEC business part of the meeting, Jim Rogers usually speaks openly to the audience and fields questions from those in attendance. Rogers is expected to provide stockholders with an overview of the companys 2012 performance and 2013 objectives. In the annual report, he called 2012 a year of perseverance and transformation. On Friday, Duke Energy will release its first quarter 2013 earnings results. Rogers and Lynn Good, executive vice president and chief financial officer,will host a conference call to discuss Dukes financial performance and provide other business updates.New nameAlso this week, the Florida Public Service Commission was notified Progress Energy Florida has officially changed its name to Duke Energy Florida Inc.

Special to the ChronicleAs of April 29, Progress Energy Florida officially changed its name to Duke Energy Florida. Duke to conduct first annual meeting since Progress merger Crystal River chooses MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleThe Crystal River City Council, in its capacity as the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), recently awarded the consulting contract to Real Estate Research Consultants. The consulting group is charged with, among other things, devising plans to effectively redevelop the citys commercial waterfront district. Consultant picked for community redevelopment study A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The city has hired a consulting group to help with the big-picture implications of a boardwalk and what to do with the commercial waterfront. And, at least one city council member is hoping the consultants report will broach new territory. I hope what we hear from them is different, Councilwoman Paula Wheeler said. She said having new ideas will help in the redevelopment of the entire commercial waterfront area. The council, in its capacity as the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), recently awarded the consulting contract to Real Estate Research Consultants. The contract is worth $48,000. The CRA board commissioned a Request for Proposals (RFP) for consultant services in late February. City officials received four responses by April 2, but Real Estate Research had the lowest bid and the company is partnering with the firm of Bellomo-Herbert and Company Inc. for the project. Bellomo-Herbert has worked with the city before in developing the redesign of Hunter Springs Park. City Manager Andy Houston said the consulting firm will look at the following issues: Review the citys Land Development Code provisions and submit recommendations for revised code provisions to be applicable exclusively to properties within a proposed waterfront development district, with such provisions to specifically address, but not be limited to, setbacks, building height, stormwater treatment, parking, and appearance. Determine the best mechanism for moving forward with a master site development plan for the proposed waterfront development district, which will address the identification of both necessary infrastructure requirements and related funding strategies for associated costs that take into account the varied ownership of properties within the proposed district. Develop recommendations related to encouraging/incentivizing private investment within the proposed waterfront development district focused on the development of vacant properties and the redevelopment of under-utilized properties. Develop recommendations for improving public access to the waterfront within the proposed waterfront development district. The creation of a Preliminary Redevelopment Plan for the proposed waterfront development district. Houston said the consulting group should be coming out with its report in 60 to 90 days. Getting streetwise: Residents pay for paving CHRISVANORMER Staff writerResidents along four streets in the Inverness Village subdivision have reached the end of a long journey to get paving laid in front of their houses. The paving itself didnt take long. It was everything else, said Dick Marr. We had our first meeting with the county a year and a half ago. By January this year, the roadwork was finished. Paving was rolled and sod laid on the rights of way blended into the adjoining lawns. That put an end to years of living on dusty dirt or sticky mud roads, depending on the weather, for those who have an address on East Commercial Lane, East Amsterdam Street, East Bennett Street and part of North Crestwood Avenue. Vehicles getting stuck in the mud were a worry during rainstorms. But residents of the 41 homes built since 2005 in the neighborhood between Independence Highway and U.S. 41 also have been concerned about getting emergency vehicles into their streets. Now the job of getting the roads paved is done, but it was a challenge. We underestimated the scope of work a little bit because were not engineers, said Giovanni Van Den Abbeele. We thought that they were going to bring some pavers in and that was going to be it. But there was a lot more to it. Swales, water lines, electricity lines, television cable lines and the water district all were part of the project. Residents said they were glad to have the work of the Southwest Florida Water Management District to help with flood prevention. Once the project got started last fall, Van Den Abbeele said he was impressed with the countys public works department and director Ken Frink. He mentioned John Vandenberghe, field inspection supervisor. He did a good job and he followed up with all the homeowners, Van Den Abbeele said. He was here on a daily basis. Wherever there was an issue, he took care of it. The residents advise other communities that are tired of their dirt roads to do as they did. Contact the county, schedule a meeting and see whats possible, said Van Den Abbeele. In the past, costs had been prohibitive for a Municipal Services Benefit Unit to build roads in Inverness Village. But since 2010, standards requiring curbs, storm drains and sidewalks were modified in the countys Land Development Code for certain pre-existing subdivisions, including Inverness Village, which made the assessment area cheaper to pave. The hard roads have changed residents lives. We all sold our dirt bikes, Van Den Abbeele joked. We dont need them anymore. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicleonline. com. CHRIS VAN ORMER/ChronicleStanding firmly on their newly paved road on East Commercial Lane are Inverness Village residents Kathy Burns, Ralph Burns, Dick Marr and Giovanni Van Den Abbeele. Fed up with their cars getting stuck in the mud, last year residents on four roads asked the county to pave them. The cost was paid through a Municipal Services Benefit Unit (MSBU), where each property owner contributes a share of the cost. Parent trigger bill fails Associated PressTALLAHASSEE For the second straight year, the Florida Senate on Tuesday defeated a bill aimed at giving parents a voice in charting a turnaround plan for failing public schools. The measure championed by school-choice supporters failed on a dramatic 20-20 vote after a drawn-out debate. Afterward, applause broke out in the gallery, drawing a stern rebuke from the Senate president. The debate turned into a replay from last year, when a similar bill passed the Florida House but died in the Senate on a tie vote. Five Republicans in the GOP-led Senate switched their votes from a year ago, including four one-time supporters who voted against the measure Tuesday. Supporters characterized House Bill 867 as giving parents a seat at the table in setting a turnaround course for failing public schools in the state. Give parents a right to be involved with their school, said Republican Sen. Aaron Bean. How hard is that? Opponents countered that parents already wield considerable influence in setting each schools course. They also called it a back-door way to hand public schools over to private educational companies. Im just concerned that this is the beginning of an ingenious plot, a blueprint for the corporate takeover of public schools, said Democratic Sen. Darren Soto. What if we get stuck with all these schools privatized and it doesnt work out?

Cancer (June 21-July 22) Though there will be situations in which youll need to take some risks, there will also be times when youll need to be conservative. Know the difference. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) A close friend might get hurt if you fail to return the warmth and consideration this person has consistently shown you. Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Selfdoubt is likely to be your worst enemy, so you need to figure out how to deal with it. If you dont, youll lose all the momentum youve gained. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Be careful, because your financial trends will be mixed. Though you may gain in some instances, you could suffer an unexpected loss. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Although you have excellent leadership qualities, you may not be using them enough. Step up to the plate when called to do so. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Because youll tend to hear and see only what you want to, you could be cruising for a bruising. Be an attentive and conscientious listener. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Treat all your friends in your usual considerate manner, but dont let anyone walk all over you. A person whos taken advantage of you in the past may try to do so again. Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) In order to achieve an important objective, you must stay focused on your target at all times. If you deviate, you are likely to be thrown off course. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) Although your judgment is likely at its soundest, unfortunately, you might allow lesser heads to rule the day. Aries (March 21-April 19) By working in fits and starts, you severely minimize your effectiveness and pro ductivity. That doesnt mean you wont do anything well, it just means you wont do enough.

She hurled paint into a Learjet engine Tuesday from a tarmac in West Palm Beach, splattering the colors onto a canvas to create the abstract designs for which she has become known. The jet engine pushes the paint into a force several times greater than hurricane winds, creating an intense power and heat. Von Anhalt said that power and heat helps create this one-of-a-kind art. She started her artwork in 2006 after studying the work of her mentor and late husband, Prinz Jurgen von Anhalt. Tuesdays demonstration is part of an event by a private jet services company and an art group to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Learjet. Curb Records sues Tim McGrawNASHVILLE, Tenn. Curb Records is suing Tim McGraw. Again. The Nashville, Tenn.-based label has filed a lawsuit against the country music star and Big Machine Records in federal court, alleging copyright infringement and breach of contract. Curb has also sued McGraw in Tennessee state court, but has thus far failed to keep McGraw from recording new music under a new agreement with Big Machine, which put out Two Lanes of Freedom earlier this year. The lawsuit asks for a return of master recordings, compensatory and punitive damages and an injunction against future recording or releases until its contract with McGraw has been fulfilled. The state case remains in front of a judge, but the court allowed McGraw to record for a new label in a decision thats been upheld on appeal.Candice Bergen producing filmLOS ANGELES Candice Bergen is producing a film about her late father, the famed ventriloquist Edgar Bergen, a spokeswoman said Tuesday. The big-screen project will tell the story of Bergens dad and his ventriloquists dummy that became an unlikely celebrity, spokeswoman Heidi Schaeffer said. The movie will be based on Candice Bergens 1984 memoir, Knock Wood. In a statement, Murphy Brown star Bergen said her father was overshadowed by the 3-foot-long wood character named Charlie McCarthy, who got the best lines while the reserved Edgar Bergen played straight man. This creation took over and eclipsed the creator, Candice Bergen said. It was the dummy that wouldnt die. All the fan mail initially went to Charlie. And Edgar wasnt really welcome at parties in the beginning unless Charlie was with him. It was totally surreal. Edgar Bergen died in 1978 at the age of 75. From wire reports Associated PressJetArt Groups artist Princess Tarinan von Anhalt replaces a traditional paintbrush with hurricane-force winds generated by Flexjets Learjet 40 XR aircrafts engine. The heat and velocity dispensed from the engine blend and weld the paint onto the canvas, resulting in one-of-a-kind, abstract paintings.

They married in 1982 in a civil ceremony, followed by a church wedding in 1985. They had three daughters Kathleen, Abigayle and Coreen and moved to the U.S. in 1992. They came to Citrus County in 2005 when Arnelle took over an Inverness practice. Education was important to her, said her husband. She sent a lot of money to her family in the Philippines and put almost her whole family through college lots of nephews and nieces. She also made sure her daughters had a good education. Kathleen is a nurse practitioner in Orlando; Abigayle, a biology major, is studying to go into forensics, and Coreen is finishing up school to be a physicians assistant. All three daughters are following their mothers example, and even grandson Jaythan, 7, has his own stethoscope, scrubs and doctors coat. I used to make rounds at the hospital with her, he said. Hunt said Dr. Fernandez would bring him to the office and he would sometimes bring patients to the examining room. Our mother taught us that there is nothing more important than family, daughter Coreen said. She also taught us humility. Even though she spoiled us, she always made sure that nothing was flaunted or too extravagant. As a devout Catholic, their mother taught them about the importance of faith and forgiveness, of not holding grudges. They learned by her example what it meant to selflessly serve other people, that relationships are far more important than material things. Arnelle loved to go shopping and buy clothes, but she would send most all of the items to her relatives in the Philippines. She took her grandson to the park; sought therapy by working in her garden. She couldnt sleep until everyone was home, safe under her roof. She loved American Idol and Dancing with the Stars and playing Ruzzle on her iPhone. She played piano, Pachelbels Canon in D and Beethovens Fr Elise. She laughed all the time. She was the strongest woman I know, Coreen said. The most stubborn and determined woman ever. She was the most perfect mother in every sense of the word. Although we think she left the world too early, it was still the best times of our lives that we will remember forever. I could only hope to be half as amazing and as perfect as she was.

Larry J. Hearold Jr. will make a request before the Citrus County Planning and Development Commission for a conditional-use permit to allow for the raising of four horses, one goat, 10 poultry and five rabbits for non-commercial purposes at his home in West Rusk Lane, Lecanto, a mediumdensity residential district amounting to about 4.81 acres. The animals would be kept in a fenced area of about 200 feet by 330 feet in size. Conditional-use permits allow property owners to use their property in other ways they would wish that do not strictly adhere to the land-use designation, such as keeping animals in a residential district. The PDC can permit this land use while setting conditions to control potential risks. The countys Land Development Code (LDC) requires a minimum lot size of 2 acres for animals in a medium-density residential district and restricts the maximum number of animals per acre. The applicant meets these requirements. The neighborhood appears rural in character and is similar to land areas where previous conditional use applications have been approved for animals. Under the LDC, the panel may grant the permit if it will not cause a difficulty in the neighborhood and would appear compatible with adjacent properties. Staff will recommend approval with four conditions: The numbers and types of animals wont change and shall be for the sole use and enjoyment of the residents. Any future structure to confine the animals shall be located not less than 50 feet from a property line. The raising of animals will follow rules set by the University of Florida and Natural Resources Conservation Service. Methods of waste management, pest control and odor abatement must be demonstrated. Any future modification would require an amendment of this conditional use.

Private sales legal for first time in five decades Associated PressHAVANA In some ways, Yosuan Crespos real estate office resembles any you might find in New York, London or Tokyo. There are slick posters of hot properties hanging from the ceiling, a steady stream of hopeful buyers and sellers and a constant clack of computer keys. But Crespos headquarters in central Havanas trendy Vedado neighborhood is actually somebody elses breezy front porch. The computers only connection to the Internet is a creaky dial-up link, and Crespo is careful to say hes not operating as a broker, since the job is still technically illegal. A baffling, sometimes bizarre real estate market has emerged in the year and a half since President Raul Castro legalized private home sales on this Communist-run island for the first time in five decades. While trade in homes is now legal, the people who bring buyers together with sellers are not. The government has yet to make good on promises to legitimize brokers, most of whom still operate in the shadows. Its a story that has been typical of Castros economic reforms, which often have left little space for the sort of middlemen and other services that help markets work. The Cuban leader also has legalized a used car market, but not the right to open a business that sells them. And while reforms have sparked an explosion of private restaurants and cafes across Cuba, the government has yet to give them access to wholesalers that could keep them better supplied. Crespo gets around the broker ban by operating as a licensed computer programmer and photographer, helping clients list their properties on Web portals, producing the forsale posters that hang in his office and offering digital photo services for sellers. He says he doesnt charge commissions. Crespos listed fees are just a few dollars, but hes found himself in major demand. He estimates 30 to 40 customers a day wander into his porch-side business, called EspacioCuba. He said his service has 2,500 current listings and has helped sell about 250 properties since it opened in January. Right now we are very pleased, said Crespo, a smartly dressed 28-yearold computer scientist with close-cropped hair, but he added the market would benefit by the government made brokering legal. The market also still lacks a workable mortgage system, an easy means of advertising potential sales and, most important, a middle class with resources to buy. Yet sales are humming, with some 45,000 homes changing hands in the first eight months after Castro legalized the real estate market in November 2011, according to the most recent statistics from the government. Prices for the choicest properties are staggeringly high: One of Crespos Havana listings offers the top floor of a threebedroom, three-bathroom colonial-style house with a marble staircase and a graceful, blue-pillared porch for $250,000 a fortune in a country where salaries average around $20 a month.A6WEDNESDAY, MAY1, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000EGHG Cellular & Roman Shades Plantation Shutters Ado Wraps Custom Drapery Top Treatments Etc. 628-7888 CALL NOW!

During a four-decade career, Shea directed hundreds of episodes for shows such as Silver Spoons and Sanford & Son, along with many Bob Hope specials. He was president of the Directors Guild from 1997 to 2002. Current President Taylor Hackford says Shea worked to bring women and minorities into guild service.Sandor Racz, 80LABOR ACTIVISTBUDAPEST, Hungary Sandor Racz, a labor activist and leading figure during Hungarys antiSoviet Revolution of 1956, died Tuesday at age 80. The World Federation of Hungarians, of which Racz was honorary president, confirmed that he died while receiving treatment for an undisclosed illness at the National Institute of Obituaries Deaths ELSEWHERE Tony Award nods skip stars for veterans Associated PressNEW YORK The Tony Awards committee largely favored tried-andtrue stage veterans over flashy visitors Tuesday when announcing this years Tony nominations, with Hollywood stars such as Bette Midler, Jessica Chastain, Al Pacino, Katie Holmes and Scarlett Johansson never hearing their names called. With the exception of Broadway debutant Tom Hanks, the acting categories were mostly filled by established theater creatures such as Laurie Metcalf, Amy Morton, Laura Osnes, Nathan Lane, Tracy Letts, David Hyde Pierce and Kristine Nielsen. Hanks, who earned a best actor nod playing gutsy New York City newspaper columnist Mike McAlary in the late Nora Ephrons Lucky Guy, joked that he was out of his league and that to win hed have to beat Lane and Pierce. Olivier and Gielgud! Hanks exclaimed. Its such a thrill and a delight to be included with these guys. He added: This makes me both giddy and nervous, and it could not be more special. The awards will be broadcast on CBS from Radio City Music Hall on June 9. The snubs of bigname actors may mean a less starry telecast. Stage veterans littered the play and musical categories, including the tight race to be crowned best musical. The leading contenders Kinky Boots and Matilda: The Musical are both stories that celebrate the little guy. Kinky Boots is based on the 2005 British movie about a real-life shoe factory that struggles until it finds new life making fetish footwear. Cyndi Laupers songs and a story by Harvey Fierstein both nominated have made it a crowd-pleaser. When we were writing this, I kept thinking I dont know if this show is going to be any good, but at the very least I think Ive discovered a new Broadway composer, Fierstein said of Lauper, who was writing songs for the stage for the first time. I could hear it. My feeling is Cyndis going to be around for a while. The show earned a leading 13 nominations, including sets by David Rockwell, directing and choreography by Jerry Mitchell, and nominations for its two leading men, Billy Porter and Stark Sands. Annaleigh Ashford earned a featured role nomination. Close behind with 12 nominations is Matilda: The Musical, the witty, dark musical adaptation of the novel by Roald Dahl that is still running in London. Matilda earned nominations for Peter Darlings choreography, Matthew Warchus directing, Chris Nightingales orchestrations, Dennis Kellys book, Tim Minchins lyrics and songs, and Bertie Carvel for best leading role in a musical.

Interestrates Associated PressNEW YORK News that IBM will buy back more stock and raise its dividend helped pull major stock indexes out of a morning slump Tuesday. IBM and other technology stocks led the Standard & Poors 500 index up. The broad-market measure ended April with a 1.8 percent gain, the sixth month in a row the index has climbed higher. Worries about slower economic growth have rattled the stock market this month, but it has consistently bounced back. Brad Sorensen, director of market research at the brokerage Charles Schwab, said thats a result of investors having few alternatives. Right now it seems like every pullback in the market is seen as a buying opportunity, Sorensen said. People may say theyre getting nervous, but where else are you going to put money at this point? Into Europe with their political issues? Into Treasurys paying less than 1.7 percent? The S&P 500 edged up 3.96 points to close at 1,597.57. The slight gain of 0.3 percent pushed the index to an all-time high for the second day straight. A report of another record high in European unemployment helped drive money into U.S. government debt, briefly sending the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note to its lowest level of the year, 1.65 percent. IBM said it will increase its quarterly dividend by a dime, to 95 cents, and buy back up to $5 billion more of its own stock. Earlier this month, the company surprised investors when it reported a drop in quarterly earnings and sales. IBMs stock rose $3.39 to $202.54. The tech giants 1.7 percent gain tugged the Dow Jones industrial average up. The Dow fell as much as 84 points in morning trading but ended with a gain of 21.05 points at 14,839.80. Thats an increase of 0.1 percent. The S&P has now climbed for six months in a row. Thats the longest stretch of gains since a seven-month run that started in March 2009, when the market hit a financial crisis low, and ended in October 2009. This earnings season has delivered investors a mixed bag of news. More than half of the companies in the S&P 500 have turned in results, and seven of 10 have beaten analysts estimates for earnings, according to S&P Capital IQ. Nearly as many, however, have come up short on revenue: Six of 10 have missed analysts revenue targets. That suggests companies are getting more of their profits from laying off staff and other cost-cutting efforts instead of from higher sales. Big Blue saves stocks from early slump Associated PressTrader Robert Arciero works Tuesday on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. BusinessBRIEFS Brighter view on jobs and pay lifts US confidenceWASHINGTON Americans are more optimistic that the job market is healing and will deliver higher pay later this year. That brighter outlook, along with rising home prices, cheaper gasoline and a surging stock market, could offset some of the drag from recent tax increases and government spending cuts. A gauge of consumer confidence rose in April, reversing a decline in March, the Conference Board, a private research group, said Tuesday. The board attributed the gain to optimism about hiring and pay increases. Economists also cited higher home values and record stock prices. Despite the rise in the index, to 68.1 from 61.9 in March, confidence remains well below its historic average of 92. Still, the increase signaled that consumers, whose spending drives about 70 percent of the economy, see better times ahead.US home prices up 9.3 percent, most in 7 yearsWASHINGTON U.S. home prices rose 9.3 percent in February compared with a year ago, the most in nearly seven years. The gains were driven by a growing number of buyers who bid on a limited supply of homes. The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index increased from an 8.1 percent year-over-year gain in January. And annual prices rose in February in all 20 cities for the second month in a row. Phoenix led with an annual gain of 23 percent in February. Prices jumped nearly 19 percent in San Francisco. In Las Vegas, home prices increased 17.6 percent and in Atlanta they rose 16.5 percent.US employment compensation up 0.3 percent in 1QWASHINGTON Americans wages increased at a faster rate from January through March than the previous quarter, a trend that helped boost consumer spending at the start of the year. But benefits barely grew. The Labor Department said Tuesday that an index that measures wages and benefits rose 0.3 percent during the first quarter. Thats down from a 0.4 percent gain in the OctoberDecember quarter and the smallest gain in a year. Wages and salaries rose 0.5 percent, up from the 0.3 percent gain in the previous quarter. Benefits, including health insurance and pension contributions, rose just 0.1 percent after a 0.6 percent rise in the fourth quarter.Shoppers face hurdles in finding ethical clothingNEW YORK You can recycle your waste, grow your own food and drive a fuel-efficient car, but being socially responsible isnt so easy when it comes to the clothes on your back. Take Jason and Alexandra Lawrence of Lyons, Colo. The couple eats locally grown food that doesnt have to be transported from far-flung states. They fill up their dieselpowered Volkswagen and Dodge pickup with vegetable-based oil. They even bring silverware to a nearby coffeehouse to avoid using the shops plastic utensils. But when it comes to making sure their clothes are made in factories that are safe for workers, they fall short. Clothing is one of our more challenging practices, says Jason Lawrence, 35, who mostly buys secondhand. I dont want to travel around the world to see where my pants come from. Last weeks building collapse in Bangladesh that killed hundreds of clothing factory workers put a spotlight on the sobering fact that people in poor countries often risk their lives working in unsafe factories to make the cheap T-shirts and underwear Westerners buy.Online poker back: Legal website launches in NevadaLAS VEGAS Poker devotees can now skip the smoky casino and legally gamble their dollars away on the couch at least in Nevada. A Las Vegas-based casino subsidiary launched the first fully legal poker website in the U.S. on Tuesday. The site, run by Ultimate Gaming, only accepts wagers from players in Nevada for now, but likely represents the next chapter in gambling nationwide. Internet poker, never fully legal, has been strictly outlawed since 2011, when the Justice Department seized the domain names of the largest offshore sites catering to U.S. customers and blacked them out.Pfizer 1Q profit up, but drugmaker cuts outlookPfizer Inc.s first-quarter net income rose 53 percent despite falling sales, mainly because the worlds second-largest drugmaker took big charges a year ago. Pfizers results fell short of Wall Streets expectations, and the company lowered its profit and sales forecasts for the year, blaming a sudden worsening of currency exchange rates. Pfizer is struggling because generic competition is reducing revenue for two-thirds of its drugs, more than a dozen of which are former blockbusters that had brought in $1 billion or more annually. When drug patents expire, cheaper generic versions flood the market, and most patients quickly switch to them. The biggest hit has been copycat versions of Pfizers cholesterol fighter Lipitor, which was the worlds best-selling drug for nearly a decade until it lost exclusivity in the U.S. in 2011 and in much of Europe last year. Revenue from Lipitor, which once brought in about $13 billion a year, dropped 55 percent to $626 million in the first quarter.FDA will investigate added caffeine in foodsWASHINGTON For people seeking an energy boost, companies are increasing their offerings of foods with added caffeine. A new caffeinated gum may have gone too far. The Food and Drug Administration said Monday that it will investigate the safety of added caffeine and its effects on children and adolescents. The agency made the announcement just as Wrigley was rolling out Alert Energy Gum, a new product that includes as much caffeine as a half a cup of coffee in one piece and promises the right energy, right now. Michael Taylor, FDAs deputy commissioner of foods, indicated that the proliferation of new foods with caffeine added especially the gum, which he equates to four cups of coffee in your pocket may even prompt the FDA to look closer at the way all food ingredients are regulated.

OPINION Page A8WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 2013 More efficient killing deviceOn Dec. 14, 2012, a teenager shot dead 26 people (20 of them first-graders), while wounding two adults, at Connecticuts Sandy Hook Elementary School. On April 15, 2013, in Boston, it took two homemade bombs to kill three people (one child) and wound dozens, many of them horribly. When it comes to slaughter, it is clear that AR-15s are vastly more efficient than homemade bombs. Nonetheless, while bombs of every sort are prohibited to U.S. citizens, AR-15s are not. Has anyone told Congress?James McIntosh LecantoMilitary members not takersRegarding John Reads April 9 letter stating in part, Those who served or are serving in the military are takers. I am not in the habit of responding to these types of letters, which may explain my delay in doing, but it would be further insulting to those who have served and are serving this country in uniform with great honor if I did not provide some comments in return. Mr. Read insults military spouses and their children who suffer tremendously from the absence of their loved one. By absence, for example, I am talking about troops who have served seven or eight tours in Iraq and Afghanistan while husband, or wife, or children somehow cope for years with not only the separation and financial hardships, but by a heartbreaking knowledge they may never see that person alive again. We veterans of the past (I am a three-decade military veteran who served in the Vietnam War) also suffered. Try to live on less than $150 a month with a wife and child. Experience what my wife did, having to raise children alone year after year as I deployed hundreds of times at overseas locations while she became the home mechanic, plumber, gardener, etc., etc., while holding down two part-time jobs to feed the children. Yeah, she was a taker. She took a lot in supporting our great country and deserves better comments from someone whose only experience is a vile, misguided keyboard. We served this country proud, my wife and children and I. We are America, we are military and we are darn proud of our commitment to freedom. We are not takers. We are givers.John Stewart, CMSgt, USAF (retired) Pine Ridge In the 1970s, Big Media had more money than the boards of directors knew what to do with. Wall Street took notice, and, soon, consultants in gray flannel suits started showing up in newsrooms with binders full of advice about how to improve the product for the consumer. Publishers pretended to listen to these people so their line editors and beat reporters didnt have to. Like Orson Wells in the first reel of Citizen Kane, they believed a newspaper was a living, breathing being with a heart, a soul and a personality all its own. Cereal companies and widget factories made products for consumers. Newspapers had readers, and everybody knew that everyone from the chief bean counter to the print shop foreman worked for those readers and not for advertisers or, heaven forbid, the government. Bit by bit, publishers who thought of themselves as public servants got retired or fired or bought off, and the infrastructure that made it possible for Florida reporters to conduct the publics business without fear or favor began to crumble. A lot of people saw what was coming and knew they would not be able to live with it. Florida Public Radio Networks Susan Gage traded her microphone years ago for a career in massage therapy, leaving behind a resignation letter that might have been written by Paddy Chayefsky, the prophetic pen behind Howard (Im mad as hell, and Im not going to take this anymore) Beale, the fictional anchorman in Network. Others, like El Nuevo HeraldEditor Angel Castillo and Norm Davis, the news director at WJXT and, later, WPLG, who lead the fight for cameras in the courtroom, developed successful law practices without pimping out their journalism Rolodexes to shady clients in search of reporters willing to put bylines on press releases. The road that Castillo and Davis paved continued, and last month ace investigative reporter Scott Hiaasen, a secondgeneration Miami Heraldnewsman, took off to clerk for a federal judge. He left just ahead of the wrecking ball thats about to come down on One Herald Plaza, the building in the Cinderella City that used to be Mecca for generations of the best journalists in the world. Florida Voices founder Rosemary Goudreau was one of them. She and Rosemary Curtiss poured their blood, sweat and personal savings into this valiant little website. But they could not compete in the whores of Babylon environment that Howard Troxler so eloquently described in his last months as a columnist for the then-St. Petersburg(nowTampa Bay) Times. Two years ago, Taxwatch issued a disturbing report on Floridas multimillion dollar communications departments. In these bloated fiefdoms, people receive salaries that cops, teachers and reporters can only dream about to crank out happy talk and obstruct the efforts of the handful of real reporters still on the job. The Taxwatch white paper was widely ignored, and we are no longer surprised when someone with a press card jumps the journalism ship and grabs a taxpayer-funded life preserver provided by a public official who is not a Friend of the First Amendment. But the really big bucks are in the private practice of journalism a newer and more pernicious brand of public relations involving the unabashed bullying and intimidation of newsrooms that no longer have a Perry White to deal with blowhards trying to justify fat fees for crisis communications. Against great odds, great stories still, somehow, continue to surface. It may be the end for Florida Voices, but as long as we have a First Amendment and people unafraid to use it, things will, somehow, be OK.Florence Snyder is a Tallahassee-based corporate lawyer who has spent most of her career in and around newspapers.

Programs like the Wounded Warrior Project defray some of that cost by helping military service members overcome physical, mental or emotional wounds. It is important Americans understand the responsibility they share in dealing with the high cost of war. The casualties of war not only include death and injury, but psychological and financial harm to service members and their families that lasts a lifetime. Crystal River native Josh White, a 23-year-old U.S. Marine and double amputee, took part this past week in the Soldier Ride bicycle trek from Washington, D.C., to Annapolis, Md. He was one of 50 wounded warriors who spent four days forming bonds while completing a physical challenge. The project has successfully changed the lives of many who completed the ride. Whites grandfather reports he is recovering remarkably well and recently learned to drive his girlfriends retrofitted van. He has been skiing and climbed an ice wall. However, his journey has only just begun. His days ahead include spending a lot more time at the rehabilitation center before starting the next phase of his life, whatever that may be. These types of injuries last a lifetime, but can be overcome. It is important for society to be accountable to Josh White and all the other service members and families who have lost loved ones or whose lives have been changed by injury. Americans should support and attend programs that recognize and honor military service members. From governments standpoint, it needs to follow through on the tenets laid out in President Obamas plan titled Strengthening our Military Families: Meeting Americas Commitment. In it, Obama proposes using federal resources to ensure military families and service members are provided emotional, psychological and consultative support both during and after their service to the country. They have sacrificed. So must we all when it comes to sharing in the cost of their recovery. THE ISSUE:Soldier Ride bicycle trek.OUR OPINION:Society shares role in service members recovery.

Manatee group ready to negotiateHonorable members of the city council of Crystal River and Andy (Houston): There is a simple solution to the dilemma Save Crystal River (SCR) has created by their illegal operations to date with the harvester in the bay that caused NOAA to independently question the Cedar Cove project funding and threatens to derail the (Southwest Florida) Water Management Districts grant approval on Tuesday. For the record, I did not tell Mr. Mercer that I would be at the meeting to oppose the grant. I gave Mr. Mercer, as I did the city council (through my email to Andy), the courtesy of informing everyone, that because of SCRs past illegal actions regarding harvester operations that I would oppose any future harvester work without verifiable monitoring by a competent third party to ensure that water quality laws would not be violated or other submerged aquatic plants and/or manatees would be harmed during the operations. This is something I believe SWFWMD was already contemplating as a due diligence measure in light of the documented past problems. For your convenience, I have included it again herewith and below. Specifically, I would humbly request that you please also review Ken Frink and Mark Edwards emails wherein Ken expressed his concerns to Mr. Jones about SCRs harvesters problematic harvester operations. In his email of March 8, Mr. Frink shared the following statement with Mr. Jones I am worried that the continuance of operation as Mark described is going to jeopardize both our contract and potential future funding from other sources. Also, for the record, SCR has yet to fully comply with their contract requirements to start harvesting under the county agreement. Unfortunately, good-faith efforts to resolve these concerns with SCR were terminated by SCR, forcing us to file our administrative challenge. This does not mean, however, that any of the future funding for bay cleanup has to be jeopardized so long as the proper monitoring is made an official part of those cleanup efforts. And, again for the record, we stand ready to reengage in good faith discussions with SCR at any time. In an effort to bring you more fully up to date with what has been going on, I want you to know that I have been working in good faith with Steve Lamb, in particular, on an acceptable monitoring plan being developed jointly with the water management district and DEP. A monitoring plan that we hoped could have been implemented for SCRs project and a plan that could also be utilized with the Cedar Cove and WMD projects as well. Since I am copying Steve on this email, I sure he can let you know if anything I have said in this email is off base. My sense is that Steve very much wants to find a good-faith way forward, as I do to solving any remaining differences. The bays health is just too important to do this wrong. Please dont let efforts by those supporting harvesters to illegally remove sediments from the bay ruin lyngbya removal efforts where it can safely be removed. Having witnessed the bay deteriorate from the time of my first of many aboveand underwater visits starting in the 1960s, I will not stand idly by while the bays future is put in imminent danger by those claiming to save it. Please ask yourself what harm can come from ensuring that the bay is not harmed further in the name of cleaning it up. If the harvester operations can be done safely and legally, then there is nothing to lose to include the monitoring provisions. But if they cannot be used safely, there is everything to gain from knowing so before it is too late. We remain ready (as we have pleaded and stressed for years) to work with you on this component of bay clean up, as well as full restoration of Kings Bay through other appropriate means as well. Thank you for taking the time to hear both my expressions of my concern and suggestions for mutually agreeable solutions going forward. Our cooperative future is in your hands, the proverbial olive branch is in mine.Patrick M. Rose, CPM aquatic biologist executive director Save the Manatee ClubFramers original intent matters more Re: Peter Poland letter, Context matters (April 16). There is no Section I, Article 8 in the Constitution, but there is an Article I, Section 8. The Constitution was ratified only because there would be a Bill of Rights protected rights for the people, and not government. The people gave government only enumerated powers. The right of the people, as individuals, to bear arms existed before the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights. We should not assume the Framers would agree to transfer this right to the States or national government. The sole purpose of the Bill of Rights was to affirm some protected individual rights would be off limits to government control, and to further enumerate the limited powers of the national government. No documents from the founding generation state the right to bear arms was a collective right to be associated only with the militia. Amendment IX states there are other rights that cannot be denied or disparaged beyond the protected individual rights stated in the Bill of Rights. James Madison and other delegates believed the rights theory was so universal it did not need any explanation or defense. And it still should not. There were also laws being enacted in the colonies demanding that all persons be armed; an example is the law of the 1623 Plymouth Colony. During the debates it was understood the militia was comprised of people who owned their weapons and had the individual right to bear arms. It was never suggested the States or national government needed power to disarm individuals. The founding generation considered and adopted many British laws because they respected constitutional tradition included within British history going back to a charter issued by King Henry I in 1100, the Petition of Rights in 1628, the Instrument of Government in 1653, the Humble Petition and Advice of 1657, the Habeas Corpus Act in 1679 and the English Bill of Rights in 1689. The 2nd Statute of Winchester (1285) codified the demand for Englishmen to bear arms to defend themselves and others, stating: ... it is commanded that every man shall have in his house arms for keeping the peace according to the ancient assize. ... The Statute of Winchester became the foundational document creating English law enforcement. However, the first clarification of armed citizen as a defense against a tyrannical government is found in James Harringtons The Commonwealth of Oceana (1656). Harrington called for an armed citizenry and denounced government by army. The Supreme Court stated in EX PARTE GROSSMAN, 267 U.S. 87 (1925): The language of the Constitution cannot be interpreted safely except by reference to the common law and to (267 U.S. 87, 109) British institutions as they were when the instrument was framed and adopted. The statesmen and lawyers of the Convention ... were born and brought up in the atmosphere of the common law. ... Where many historians and scholars err is in interpreting and analyzing the founding era language to mean the same as it does today; it doesnt always. The Constitution of most of our states, and of the United States, assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed. Thomas Jefferson I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians.

Pat Coles Citrus County Support ServicesExecution appropriate for this killerSoon after two firefighters were murdered in Webster, N.Y., there was yet another outcry for more gun control. But of course more gun laws would not have stopped this thing from murdering these courageous men. This person is a convicted felon; it is illegal for him to possess a firearm. Yet he did, but he didnt use a gun when he killed his grandmother, either. He just beat her to death with a hammer. If he had not been released on parole, those two first responders would still be around for their families. Execution, cruel and unusual punishment? Well so is beating one to death with a hammer.

Associated PressDAMASCUS, Syria A powerful bomb ripped through a bustling commercial district of Damascus on Tuesday, killing at least 14 people, shattering store fronts and bringing Syrias civil war to the heart of the capital for the second consecutive day. A day earlier, the Syrian prime minister narrowly escaped an assassination attempt after a car bomb struck near his convoy, a few miles from Tuesdays blast. The bombings appear to be part of an accelerated campaign by opposition forces to hit President Bashar Assads regime in the heavily defended capital. Tuesdays bombing struck the Marjeh neighborhood, a bustling commercial area near the Old City of Damascus, Syrian TV said. It described the explosion as a terrorist bombing, using the term Assads regime uses to refer to opposition fighters. The state news agency said 14 people were killed and 103 wounded in the attack. I heard a very loud bang and then the ceiling collapsed on top of me, said Zaher Nafeq, who owns a mobile phone shop in the Damascus Towers, a 23-floor office building. He was wounded in his hand and his mobile phone shop was badly damaged in the blast. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the blast, but car bombs and suicide attacks targeting Damascus and other cities that remain under government control in the third year of the conflict have been claimed in the past by the al-Qaida affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra group one of scores of rebel factions fighting to oust Assad. The target of Tuesdays attack was not immediately clear, although the explosion took place outside the former Interior Ministry building that was also damaged in the blast. Associated PressNEW YORK Bodies tensed and noses twitching, the dogs sniff the hunting ground before them: a lower Manhattan alley, grimy, dim and perfect for rats. With a terse command Now! the chase is on. Circling, bounding over and pawing at a mound of garbage bags, the four dogs quickly have rodents on the run. Come on ... I mean, tally ho! says one of their owners, Susan Friedenberg. In a whirl of barks, pants and wagging tails, dogs tunnel among the bags and bolt down the alley as their quarry tries to scurry away. Within five minutes, the city has two fewer rats. In a scrappy, streetwise cousin of mannerly countryside fox hunts, on terrain far from the European farms and fields where many of the dogs ancestors were bred to scramble after vermin and foxes, their masters sport trash-poking sticks instead of riding crops and say its just as viable an exercise for the animals centuries-old skills. Its about maintaining the breed type through actual work, says Richard Reynolds, a New Jerseybased business analyst and longtime dog breeder who might be considered the groups organizer if it would accept being called organized. Known with a chuckle as the Ryders Alley Trencherfed Society parse the acronym the rodenthunters have been scouring downtown byways for more than a decade, meeting weekly when weather allows. On a couple of recent nights, an eclectic group of ratters converged on an alley near City Hall about an hour after sunset. The lineups included two border terriers; a wire-haired dachshund; a Jack Russell terrier/Australian cattle dog mix; a Patterdale terrier, an intense, nononsense breed thats uncommon in this country; and a feist, a type of dog developed in the American South to tree squirrels. The terrier forays are an unofficial undertaking, and participants say theyre less about killing rats than giving dogs the experience of chasing them. The Health Department declined to comment on the hunts. Associated PressWASHINGTON After a storm of complaints, the Obama administration on Tuesday unveiled simplified forms to apply for insurance under the presidents new health care law. You wont have to lay bare your medical history, but you will have to detail your finances. An earlier version of the forms had provoked widespread griping that they were as bad as tax forms and might overwhelm uninsured people, causing them to give up in frustration. The biggest change: a five-page short form that single people can fill out. That form includes a cover page with instructions and another page if you want to designate someone to help you through the process. But the abridged application form for families starts at 12 pages, and grows as you add children. Most people are expected to take another option, applying online. The ease or difficulty of applying for benefits takes on added importance because Americans remain confused about what the health care law will mean for them. A Kaiser Family Foundation poll released Tuesday found 4 in 10 are unaware its the law of the land. Some think its been repealed by Congress. In fact, its still on track. And its a mandate, not a suggestion. The law says virtually all Americans must carry health insurance starting next year, although most will just keep the coverage they now have through their jobs, Medicare or Medicaid. The applications will start becoming familiar to consumers less than six months from now, on Oct. 1, when new insurance markets open for enrollment in every state. Most people already signed up in their employers plan dont need to bother with the forms. Filling out the application is just the first part of the process, which lets you know if you qualify for financial help. The government asks to see what youre making because Obamas Affordable Care Act is means-tested, with lower-income people getting the most generous help to pay premiums. Consumers who arent applying for financial help still have to fill out a fivepage form. Once youre finished with the money part, actually picking a health plan will require additional steps, plus a basic understanding of insurance jargon. Benefits begin Jan. 1, and nearly 30 million uninsured Americans are eventually expected to get coverage. Frog jump Associated PressAssemblywoman Cheryl Brown, D-San Bernardino, grimaces Tuesday as she prepares to jump her frog, Larry B, in the 39th Annual Capitol Frog Jump at the Capitol in Sacramento, Calif. Tests link deadly ricin to Obama letters suspectTUPELO, Miss. Ricin has been found in a business once used by the man charged in the case of letters laced with the deadly poison being sent to President Barack Obama, according to a court document made public Tuesday that also said the substance was found on items the suspect dumped in a public trash bin. James Everett Dutschke, 41, was arrested Saturday by FBI agents at his home in Tupelo, Miss., and is being held without bond pending a preliminary and detention hearing Thursday in U.S. District Court in Oxford. The affidavit said that on April 22, Dutschke removed several items from his former martial arts studio in Tupelo, including a dust mask, which tested positive for ricin.Second body found after midair collisionCALABASAS, Calif. A second body was found Tuesday at a rugged site in the Santa Monica Mountains where a small plane crashed and burned after a midair collision with another small plane that managed to make a belly landing on a golf course, authorities said. The plane went down Monday on a ridge in the mountain range north of Malibu near Calabasas, about 25 miles west of downtown Los Angeles. The crash of the singleengine Cessna 172 sparked a half-acre brush fire that was quickly controlled. The plane, which had taken off from Santa Monica airport, was nearly completely destroyed. Three people on the other plane, also a Cessna, suffered minor injuries as it landed wheels-up on a fairway at Westlake Golf Course, about six miles away. Stunned golfers said the single-engine plane hit a tree, spun around 180 degrees and came down surprisingly gently on the grass. Both planes were flying in an area without air traffic control services.Deliberations end for the day in Pa. abortion doc casePHILADELPHIA A jury has gone home after deliberating for two hours in the capital murder trial of a Philadelphia abortion doctor accused of killing a patient and four babies.

Israeli airstrike in Gaza kills one PalestinianGAZA CITY, Gaza Strip An Israeli aircraft attacked a motorcycle in Gaza on Tuesday, killing a top militant in a shadowy alQaida-influenced group who had been involved in a recent rocket attack on southern Israel. It was the first deadly airstrike in Gaza since a truce was reached with Palestinian militants last November, and is the most serious test yet of the Egyptian-brokered agreement. The strike came alongside the fatal stabbing of an Israeli settler in the West Bank, the first killing by a Palestinian of an Israeli in the territory in more than a year. The Israeli military said it killed Haitham Mishal, a jihadi militant involved in an April 17 rocket attack on the southern Israeli resort town of Eilat and other violence. Tuesdays airstrike showed strains in a fivemonth cease fire brokered by Egypt last November that ended eight days of exchanges between Israel and Hamas. Under the deal, Gaza militants pledged to halt rocket attacks on Israel, while Israel said it would end its policy of assassinating wanted militants.Bomb kills four worshippers in southern BaghdadBAGHDAD Iraqi authorities said a bomb has exploded near a Sunni mosque in southern Baghdad, killing four worshippers and wounding 20 others.

Baseball/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Basketball/B3 Lottery, TV/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 Golf/B4 Tennis/B4 Hudson wins 200th, hits HR in win over Nationals. / B2 SPORTSSection BWEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Two county baseball teams left in postseason Citrus, Seven Rivers back in action tonightSEANARNOLD CorrespondentA pair of county baseball teams are set to compete in todays quarterfinal round of the state regional playoffs after surviving their respective district tournaments last week. District 6A-6 runner-up Citrus (13-14 overall) goes on the road to take on a Lake Weir club (15-12 overall) that has some timely momentum in winning three straight to claim the 6A-5 crown. It mounted a semifinal upset of top-seeded South Lake and scored five runs in the seventh inning versus Gainesville to overcome a 6-3 deficit in Thursdays final. The Hurricanes (of Marion County) are led both on the mound and at bat by 220pound sophomore right-hander Dakota Spivey, who has a 3.07 ERA, four complete games and 59 strikeouts in 57 innings pitched as well as a .447 batting average and 10 doubles at the plate, according to stats on www.Max Preps.com. Hes joined by senior lefty Bryan Prevatte (3.22 ERA, five complete games, 67 strikeouts in 63 innings) and sophomore middle infielder Trace Thornal (.378 batting). Citrus fell to Springstead and its senior ace Brandon Brosher by a score of 6-1 in their district final at Central after defeating West Port on Tuesday, but were on the verge of a pair of potentially gamechanging rallies as they loaded the bases, to no avail, in the fifth and sixth innings. A diving catch by Eagles junior center fielder Will Pagan his second such play of the game in the sixth took away a sure double and possibly three runs scored on a ball crushed to right-center by sophomore left fielder Alex Barbee. Strong on the mound for Citrus last week were junior starters Chad Dawson and Ben Wright and freshman left-handed reliever Austin Bogart who finished the regular season with a 1.29 ERA while leading the team with .462 on-base percentage, three home runs and eight doubles, but is currently limited to relief duties as he deals with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. But the Hurricanes which are led elsewhere by junior catcher Cody Bogart (team-high .373 batting, three home runs and seven runners caught stealing in regular season) will need to reduce some of its mistakes in the field to stay alive going forward. There are 32 teams in 6A playing right now, and were one of them, Citrus coach Brady Bogart said on his teams outlook. There are a lot of No. 1 seeds that are sitting home. Well go on the road with a good opportunity to win a ballgame. If we can come out and compete like we did (against Springstead), where we did what we wanted to on the mound and we put the ball in play and were aggressive at the plate for the most part, thats all you can expect. Last years senior-laden Citrus club beat Vanguard and South Lake in a couple of playoff thrillers before losing to powerhouse Melbourne in the regional finals. There are 32 teams in 6A playing right now, and were one of them.Brady BogartCitrus High School baseball head coach. See BASEBALL/ Page B3 Marlins Stanton out for a month Associated PressMIAMI Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton expects to be sidelined for about a month because of a strained right hamstring. Stanton underwent an MRI exam Tuesday and said the diagnosis was a grade-two strain on the one-tothree scale for the injury. He was hurt trying to beat out a grounder in Mondays 15-inning victory over the New York Mets, and was placed on the 15-day disabled list. The injury occurred just as last years NL slugging leader showed signs of emerging from a prolonged slump to start the season. He hit his first home run Saturday and two more Sunday. Awesome timing, Stanton said facetiously. Its a tough break. Pretty frustrating. Its just one of those freak things. Theres never a good time, but this was probably one of the worst times to do it. Last year Stanton hit 37 home runs despite missing 39 games because of injuries. Now the Marlins, already saddled with the worst record in the majors, will be without their best hitter for several weeks. If we could just erase all of April, that would be lovely, Stanton said. Hell be replaced in right field by 22-year-old Marcell Ozuna, who was recalled from DoubleA Jacksonville to make his major-league debut. When I received the call, I felt very excited, Ozuna said. I didnt sleep last night. With Stanton due to become eligible for arbitration after the season, theres already speculation the thrifty Marlins will trade him, and Ozuna would be the leading replacement candidate. The Dominican was hitting .333 with five homers and 15 RBIs in 10 games with Jacksonville. Hes a career .274 hitter in the minors who hit at least 22 home runs each of the past three seasons. Giancarlo StantonMarlin slugger out a month. Big win for Big Game James Shields leads Royals to 8-2 victory over Rays Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. James Shields made a stellar first start against his former team, and Mike Moustakas hit a two-run homer to spur the Kansas City Royals to an 8-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. Shields (2-2) allowed a tworun homer to Matt Joyce in the first inning, but only allowed three more hits over the next six. He struck out seven in the kind of dominant performance the Royals were hoping for when they acquired him in December. The Royals trailed 2-1 in the sixth when Moustakas first homer of the year gave Kansas City the lead. The Royals added another run to chase Rays starter Alex Cobb (3-2), and three more off reliever Brandon Gomes in the seventh, shoring up the win for Big Game James. The victory snapped a twogame skid and allowed Kansas City to finish 14-10 in April, a dramatic improvement from the 6-15 mark the Royals carried into May a year ago. Tampa Bay dropped to 4-10 on the road this season. Kansas City has been looking for a legitimate No. 1 starter for years, and finally made the bold decision to acquire Shields and fellow right-hander Wade Davis from Tampa Bay to fill the void. Associated PressTampa Bay Rays second baseman Ryan Roberts reaches to catch a line drive Tuesday during the fourth inning at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleLecanto third baseman Amber Hopkins slides into home ahead of Gainesville catcher Makailah Browns tag to score Monday in a Class 6A regional semifinal softball game at Lecanto High School. The run represented the only one for Lecanto in a 2-1 loss. Gainesville scores run in seventh to advance past Lecanto 2-1 C.J. RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO Throughout its state tournament run, Lecantos softball team was able to do what it didnt do throughout the regular season play consistently and nearly error-free on defense. The Panthers combined that with a potent offense to win four straight postseason games. In Tuesdays Class 6A, Region 2 semifinal against visiting Gainesville, the formula was nearly the same, but it wasnt quite good enough. The Hurricanes took advantage of Lecantos one error in the field to score what proved to be the game-winning run in the top of the seventh for a 2-1 victory. We blinked, said Panthers coach Robert Dupler, his team finishing at 17-13 after reaching the regional semis for the second straight season. That one error didnt lose it for us. At this level, you blink and youre going to go home. With one out in the seventh, Gainesvilles Amanda Donovan lifted a fly ball to center that Lecanto outfielder Breanna Martin bobbled. Brittany Lewis was then safe on a grounder to first when Donovan beat first baseman Lilly Parrishs throw to second, and Stephanie Caudle followed with a base hit to score Donovan with the pivotal run. While a mistake in the field may have resulted in the winning run crossing the plate, it wasnt the difference in this game. Lecanto simply could not find a solution to Gainesville freshman pitcher Katie Chronister, who limited the Panthers to three hits without issuing a walk, striking out four. Shes 9-5 for us this season, said Gainesville coach Pete Marino, his team now 19-8, but shes pitched against all the good teams on our schedule, and shes been so tough. She never gets flustered. She can smell the victory. She takes it to the next level. Chronister did that just often enough against Lecanto. The Panthers had runners on base in just three innings, and their only run came in the second when Amber Hopkins reached base on an infield hit, advancing to second on a wild pitch and to third on a passed ball. She scored on Kelsie Lilleys sacrifice bunt. In the fourth, two-out singles by Hopkins and Lilley put runners at first and third before a ground out ended the threat. With one out in the seventh, Lilley reached base on an error, but the inning as well as the game and Lecantos season ended with a pair of ground outs. I was zoned in to what I was doing, Chronister said. I just try and relax and throw my pitches. I came in and treated them like every other team. She was certainly effective. The top three hitters in Lecantos batting order Amber Atkinson, Paige Richards and Amber Russo were a combined 0-for-9. Overshadowed by Chronisters performance was a strong pitching job by Lecantos Danielle Yant, who allowed one earned run on nine hits and one walk. She did not record a strikeout, an indication of how effective the Panther defense was behind her. Atkinson was particularly strong behind the plate, picking a runner off base to end a threat in the fourth inning then tossing the lead runner out at second on a sacrifice bunt attempt in the fifth. Atkinsons fifth-inning play was followed by a fly ball to right by Caudle that dropped in front of outfielder Sidney Holstein, but Holstein fired to second to get the force out. The Hurricanes got their first run on a bases-loaded sacrifice fly by Amanda Donovan in the second inning. Allie Wilkerson and Tiffany Donovan each had two hits for Gainesville. We put the ball in play, it just didnt go for us, Dupler said. Thats just softball. Thats a very good team. We played well and they played well.

B2WEDNESDAY, MAY1, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMAJORLEAGUEBASEBALL Associated PressATLANTA Tim Hudson was a dual threat in his 200th career win, combining with Anthony Varvaro on a three-hitter while hitting a homer and a double to lead the Atlanta Braves to an 8-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night. Hudson (3-1) dominated the Nationals through seven innings, striking out six and walking two while giving up one run. One of the three hits he allowed was an infield single by Denard Span. Hudsons bat almost stole the night. He led off the second with a double to left field off Gio Gonzalez (2-2) and hit a fifth-inning homer off Zach Duke. Bryce Harper made a leaping attempt to catch the homer, but the ball bounced off his glove and over the wall. The Braves won their ninth straight against Washington, dating to last season. Andrelton Simmons had three hits, including a homer to lead off the first inning for Atlanta. Freddie Freeman had three singles and three RBIs, and Evan Gattis drove in two runs with two hits. Hudsons homer was the third of his career and first since June 20, 2011 against Toronto. The 37-year-old became the third active pitcher with 200 wins, joining Andy Pettitte (248) and Roy Halladay (201). Hudson is 200-105 in his career, including 92 wins while with Oakland from 1999-2004. Hudson allowed no hits until Tyler Moore led off the fifth with a double to the right-field corner. Moore scored from third on a groundout by Wilson Ramos. Gonzalez lasted only four innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and a season-high five walks. The left-hander has allowed five or more runs in three of his six starts this season, leaving his ERA at 5.34. It was the second start this season Gonzalez has pitched only four innings.AMERICAN LEAGUE Blue Jays 9, Red Sox 7TORONTO Edwin Encarnacion hit an upper-deck homer in the fifth inning, then connected for a go-ahead home run in the seventh that sent the Toronto Blue Jays over the Boston Red Sox 9-7. The Blue Jays ended a four-game losing streak and avoided the first 18loss April in club history. David Ortiz homered, doubled and drove in four runs for Boston. Encarnacions pair of two-run shots marked the 10th multi-homer game of his career and second this season. Encarnacion became the 14th player to reach the upper deck in left field at Rogers Centre, tagging starter Jon Lester. Toronto trailed 7-6 when Encarnacion homered off Junichi Tazawa (2-1). Steve Delabar (2-1) got two outs for the win. Casey Janssen finished for his seventh save in as many chances.Yankees 7, Astros 4NEW YORK Hiroki Kuroda settled in after a rocky start to pitch four-hit ball through seven innings, Travis Hafner had three RBI singles and the New York Yankees used small ball to beat the Houston Astros 7-4. Jayson Nix had an RBI infield single and Brennan Boesch a run-scoring fielders choice for the banged-up Bronx Bombers, who bounced back from a 9-1 loss to the Astros on Monday. New York took advantage of Phil Humbers four wild pitches and a couple of close calls at first base to score its first four runs without an extra-base hit. Kuroda (4-1) threw 67 pitches in the first three innings, putting at least two runners on in each one. But just as he did in his previous start, he got into a better rhythm and retired 14 of his final 15 batters.Tigers 6, Twins 1DETROIT Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder each hit a two-run homer, Justin Verlander pitched seven strong innings and the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins 6-1 for their fifth straight victory. Verlander (3-2) allowed a run and five hits. He struck out eight and walked two. Vance Worley (0-4) gave up six runs and 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings. Worley was acquired by the Twins in an offseason trade with Philadelphia and started Minnesotas season opener, but the right-hander has a 7.22 ERA. Cabrera opened the scoring with his fourth homer of the year, and Fielders seventh was part of a three-run fifth. Alex Avila also went deep for Detroit.NATIONAL LEAGUE Marlins 2, Mets 1MIAMI Juan Pierre scored standing up on a wild pitch with none out in the ninth, and the Miami Marlins came from behind in the final inning for the second consecutive game to beat the reeling New York Mets 2-1. The Mets have lost a season-worst six games in a row. They were beaten Monday when Miami scored twice in the 15th inning to win 4-3. New Yorks Jeremy Hefner (0-3) took a 1-0 lead and a three-hitter into the ninth but couldnt get another out. Chris Coghlan singled to start the inning and advanced on a passed ball. When Juan Pierre bunted, Coghlan beat catcher Anthony Reckers throw to third, although the Mets argued that Coghlan overslid the bag.Cardinals 2, Reds 1ST. LOUIS Matt Holliday hit a two-run homer, Jaime Garcia continued his mastery of Cincinnati with eight strong innings and the St. Louis Cardinals snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Reds. Garcia (3-1) gave up one run on seven hits, struck out three and did not walk a batter. The left-hander improved to 7-0 in eight starts against Cincinnati at Busch Stadium and is 9-2 overall against them. He retired the last seven batters he faced and recorded 18 ground ball outs. Edward Mujica struck out the side in the ninth for his fifth save in as many chances.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE After getting by its rival for the second time this season in Thursdays 2A3 final, district champion Seven Rivers Christian (16-2 overall) stays in the county to take on Orlando Christian Prep (4-13-1) at Dazzy Vance Field in Homosassa. The Warriors turned a seventh-inning double play with the bases loaded and sophomore ace Cory Weiand (0.52 ERA, .528 batting in regular season) fanned 11 while tossing a complete game and adding a triple and double at the plate to lead his teams 5-4 win over the Saints. Weiand is expected to start today, with junior standout Adam Gage (.898 slugging, six home runs, 2.14 ERA in regular season) standing by in relief. Despite its superior record and home status, first-year Warriors head baseball coach Jim Ervin knows the challenge ahead. Its one game and youre out no matter what your record is, Ervin said. Were not taking anyone lightly. If we pitch well and hit the ball like we have the last few weeks, then we should be in good shape.

The league suspended Blackmon on Tuesday for the first four games of the 2013 season for his second violation in less than a year. He will not get paid for the four-week hiatus. Maybe more importantly, the suspension triggers language in his contract that voids future guarantees. Now, the Jaguars could cut him without having to pay about $10 million that remains on a four-year, $18.5 million contract. Its Blackmons third substance-related incident in less than three years. Blackmon, who caught 64 passes for 865 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie, will miss games against Kansas City, Oakland, Seattle and Indianapolis. Tebow clears waivers, now a free agentNEW YORK Tim Tebow has cleared waivers a day after being let go by the New York Jets, making the quarterback a free agent whos allowed to sign with any NFL team. Tebow was waived Monday after an unproductive season with the Jets, leaving his NFL future uncertain. It was expected he would clear waivers since a team would have had to pick up the remainder of Tebows contract, about $1.9 million over the next two seasons. The Jets must still pay the Broncos, from whom they acquired Tebow in March 2012, $1.53 million as a result of the trade agreement. Its uncertain if any NFL team will give Tebow an opportunity for next season, but two indoor league teams have offered him a job.NASCAR drivers hit 214 mph during Indy tire testINDIANAPOLIS A new environmentally friendly tire and cool morning temperatures had NASCAR drivers clocking speeds they werent even sure were possible Tuesday. On the first day of a closed tire test on Indianapolis historic 2.5-mile oval, Mark Martin wrote on Twitter that he had hit 212 mph in the morning. When Jeff Gordon saw the post, he asked his own team how fast he reached and said he was told 214. Drivers attributed the speed to almost perfect conditions in the morning good grip and a cool track. In the heat of the afternoon, Gordon said the tire wear increased and the speeds slowed. Clearly, though, those on the track were encouraged by the results. Gordon and Trevor Bayne both said they would embrace a night race at Indy, too.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Associated PressKANSAS CITY, Mo. Tampa Bay Rays pitcher David Price is not concerned about potential discipline from Major League Baseball after his verbal spat with umpire Tom Hallion last weekend. Price accused Hallion of directing a profanity toward him during the Rays 8-3 win over the White Sox on Sunday. The AL Cy Young Award winner thought Hallion missed a pitch and exchanged words with the plate umpire while heading to the dugout after the seventh inning. After the game, Hallion vehemently denied Prices claim. Ill come right out bluntly and say hes a liar, he told a pool reporter. Price took to Twitter to dispute Hallions version of events and said before Tuesday nights game in Kansas City that he was upset with himself and never looked up until he heard Hallions voice. You cant talk to me that way, period, Price said. That was my whole thing. It had nothing to do with the strike zone. You dont talk to people that way. Price also took umbrage with being called a liar. Im not a liar, he said pointedly. Im not a liar, period. Two of Prices teammates, pitchers Matt Moore and Jeremy Hellickson, came to Prices defense from the dugout during the game. Hallion ejected Hellickson after he warned them to keep quiet. Moore and Hellickson joined Price in addressing the issue on Twitter, with Hellickson saying, Theres only one person lying about all this and his name starts with a T and rhymes with pom. Price and his teammates could be disciplined for violating MLBs social media policy, which forbids content that questions the impartiality of or otherwise denigrates a Major League umpire. Hallion also could be disciplined for initiating the incident. Asked if it would be awkward the next time Hallion umpired one of his games, Price replied: Not for me.

The first one is on May 4 and 5, the 2013 Cinco de Mayo Mixed Doubles Tennis Tournament at Delta Woods Park in Spring Hill.

Singh cleared Tour drops its doping case against golfer Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. The PGA Tour dropped its doping case against Vijay Singh on Tuesday based on new information from the World Anti-Doping Agency, which said using deer antler spray is no longer prohibited because it contains such small amounts of a growth hormone factor. The bottom line is that given the change by WADA, we are dropping the case against Mr. Singh, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said Tuesday. Finchem said Singhs appeal of the sanctions was almost over when WADA, which had warned about the spray in February, told the tour Friday it no longer considers the use of deer antler spray to be prohibited except for a positive test result. WADA sent the tour a written statement Tuesday, indicating that the spray is known to contain small amounts of IGF-1. Based on this new information, and given WADAs lead role in interpreting the prohibited list, the tour deemed it only fair to no longer treat Mr. Singhs use of deer antler spray as a violation of the tours anti-doping program, Finchem said, reading from a statement. The decision ends a three-month saga that had players wondering what would happen to Singh, a 50-year-old Fijian with three major championships who is famous for the endless hours he spends on the practice range. Singh said in an interview with Sports Illustrated that he paid $9,000 last November for deer antler spray, hologram chips and other products from Sports With Alternatives To Steroids. The spray was said to contain IGF-1, an insulin-like growth hormone that is on the list of banned substances under the tours anti-doping policy. The tour said Singh provided a sample of the spray, and tests at a UCLA laboratory confirmed the presence of IGF-1. Even though Singh never tested positive for the banned substance, the tours policy says that admitting to use of such a substance is a violation, positive test or not. The tour penalized Singh on Feb. 19 Tuesday of the Match Play Championship, for which Singh was not eligible and Singh appealed a week later. Deer antler spray was also in the news before the Super Bowl, with a report connecting Baltimore Ravens star Ray Lewis to the product. The tour contacted WADA to confirm technical points when the agency clarified its position. WADA provided a written statement to the tour Tuesday. Were talking about a determination that was made by scientists at WADA that relate to the consumption, through deer antler spray, of a technically violative substance, IGF-1, Finchem said. But in looking at it, the scientists concluded it resulted in infinitesimal amounts actually being taken into the recipients body, amounts that couldnt be distinguished even if you had an accurate test with the amount that you might take into your body from milk, etc. He said a player taking enough IGF-1 to register a positive result is not possible because a positive reading means that youre surpassing a certain level. There hasnt been any level ever set. Associated PressVijay Singh no longer faces any sanction for using deer antler spray. The PGA Tour said Tuesday it was dropping the case against the three-time major champion. Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said new information from the World Anti-Doping Agency indicates using deer antler spray is no longer considered prohibited.

Students work multiple jobs to graduate debt-free at College of the Ozarks EMILYYOUNKER The Joplin GlobePOINT LOOKOUT, Mo.April Gregory spends part of each week in a warm, sometimes stuffy laundry on the campus of College of the Ozarks, washing, drying and pressing clothes and linens.The Joplin Globereported the college sophomore from Harrison, Ark., also maintains an off-campus job and has held summer jobs, but shes not complaining. Her jobs plus a new no-debt policy at her school will ensure she graduates in a few years without any debt to her name. Its definitely a lot of hard work, said Gregory, who is majoring in animal science and agriculture business. Youre just working for your education so you dont have to pay it off. Just to know that youre graduating and you can focus on getting a place to live, or a job, and you dont have to pay (your education) off you can focus on other things, like a car. We will have more freedom than being tied down to debt. During a time when most students are graduating from college with loan debt, College of the Ozarks, a private, fouryear school of nearly 1,400 students near Branson, is swimming against the tide. It has long discouraged student debt by not participating in any federal or state loan programs, and its president, Jerry C. Davis, recently announced the college will no longer honor private bank loans for students. Basically, what were saying is if you want to borrow money, go somewhere else, he said. Trust me; there are plenty of colleges that will loan you money. This is not one of them. Davis said in recent years, an average of 90 percent of the colleges students were graduating debt-free thanks in part to the schools debt policies. 200-page book digitized Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C.

SUCCESSContinued from Page C1 We found Abbys blog and fell in love with all of her ideas, and felt she could be an inspiration to others. Mullins presentation, titled Create & Design Curriculum Resources that Inspire & Engage, will be 75 minutes. Thats a very long time, Mullins said. Its a good thing I like to talk. Mullins, 30, of Lakeside Park, is a graduate of Dixie Heights High School. She earned a degree in psychology at the University of Kentucky, but decided soon after that she wanted to teach. She returned to school at Northern Kentucky University for her bachelors and masters degrees in education. Mullins taught kindergarten at Caywood in 2008 and 2009, then first grade for two years. This year she is the schools Title I teacher. She does a lot of data collection and analysis, along with math and reading interventions for students in all grades. She started blogging in 2008 with the creation of Babbling Abby, a blog mostly about her family that she describes on the site as Just my random thoughts about my lovely little life as an educator, mommy, and wife (or an outlet for my incessant need to gab!). In 2011, realizing she had been posting more and more education ideas, and also seeing that her blog was becoming very popular among educators, she decided she should create a separate teacher blog. Thats how the Inspired Apple at theinspired apple.blogspot.com was born. She got ideas for its design from other teacher blogs she found. One of her inspirations was Deanna Jump, a first-grade teacher in Macon, Ga., who started her own blog at www.mrsjumpsclass.blogspot. com three years ago. Abbys blog is not only a great resource for teachers, but it has such a sweet spirit about it, Jump said. When you read her blog, you feel like she is having a conversation with you. Mullins tries to post something at least once a week. Ideas range from how to create a Parts of Speech Center for helping students learn nouns, verbs and adjectives, to fun art activities for the holidays. She receives a lot of emails daily from her followers and tries to answer every one of them. While she thoroughly enjoys where she is at now in her career, Mullins said her ultimate education goal is to be a school administrator: Im not sure how blogging will get me there, but its what I would like to do. Whenever she is ready to pursue it, Caywood Principal Kelly Conner has no doubt Mullins will succeed. From the first day I met her, I could tell she was a topnotch educator with a lot of passion in all she does, Conner said. She is definitely one person I would recommend to be an administrator. She is very much a leader. Mullins will be one of a dozen extraordinary educators presenting in Chicago. Her talk will be attended by as many of the expected 2,000 attendees as want to sign up for it. Jump, who gives talks herself, expects it will be a popular choice. I think she will draw huge numbers, Jump said. Those who attend wont be getting a lecture. They will get the real Babbling Abby theyve come to love through the blogosphere. It will be a lot of interacting between me and the audience, Mullins said. Im very nervous, but I do hope people will pick me. ledger on their website last week, making it available for the first time for all readers, students and scholars. This is a record of everything Fitzgerald wrote, and what he did with it, in his own hand, said Elizabeth Sudduth, director of the Ernest F. Hollings Library and Rare Books Collection. During a recent visit to the librarys below-ground rare-book vault, Sudduth took the original 200-page book out of its clamshell protective cover. The ledgers yellowed pages with Fitzgeralds elegant, measured cursive strokes are a throwback to life before computer spreadsheets. The ledger shows Fitzgeralds tally of earnings from his works, the most famous of which is the novel The Great Gatsby. The ledger lists his many short stories, books and adaptations for stage and screen. With the May 10 release of a new Gatsby movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Sudduth said library officials expect an upswing in interest in its Fitzgerald collection. The ledger will be on display at the library for about a month starting May 6, Sudduth said. The librarys Fitzgerald collection is considered the worlds most comprehensive, with more than 3,000 publications, manuscripts, letters, book editions, screenplays and memorabilia.

But administrators had also been noticing a slight uptick in the number of private loans being taken out to help cover college costs, he said. We dont think thats a good idea because debt is bad, he said. We would not be doing these kids a favor by letting them get into debt. You could argue its a disservice. Youre just giving them another brick to swim with when they get out. Under the system that has given the college its Hard Work U nickname, students pay for their tuition, which was $17,600 for the 2011-12 academic year, by working on campus each semester for 15 hours per week, plus two 40-hour work weeks. They fill a variety of roles, including upkeep of the scenic campus, staffing the colleges restaurant and lodge, operating the oncampus laundry business, labor of new on-campus construction and tending to the schools dairy and beef farms. Any remaining tuition balances not covered through the work education program are filled in with a students grants, if eligible, and a scholarship from the college, which boasts on its website that students should owe absolutely no cash for tuition. Its better for students to work than it is for students to go in debt, Davis said. The college also has a summer program for eligible students to work 12 40hour work weeks at their campus job to cover the costs of room and board fees, which total $5,900. Davis said fewer than 100 students are expected to be affected next year by the new policy excluding private loans, which they generally used toward room and board. To assist with the transition, he said the college will increase the number of slots in its summer work program from about 490 to roughly 550. At least theres going to be one college to stand up and say: Theres a better way to do this, he said. And its called work. Amanda Hart, a sophomore from Jefferson City who is majoring in elementary education, works on the guest experience team, greeting visitors to the college lodge and also taking responsibility for its cleaning. She said that work, plus a scholarship and her college savings, cover her tuition, while she hopes to be accepted into the summer work program this year to pay for her room and board. Although she is still a few years away from graduation, she said she expects to obtain her bachelors degree without incurring any debt and that was a major reason she chose College of the Ozarks. I wanted to be able to go wherever there was a need (for teachers) and not worry about making enough to pay off student loans, she said. Ruben De La Rosa, a senior from Pleasant Hill, expects to graduate next month with a degree in criminal justice with an emphasis in law enforcement. Having worked two campus jobs, as both a server and a student manager in the colleges restaurant, Dobyns Dining Room, he said he plans to take next year off to work and save some additional cash before pursuing his goal of working in the CIA. De La Rosa didnt choose College of the Ozarks because of its work program or debt-free policies, but he said he now considers himself lucky to be on the cusp of graduation without any debt weighing him down. Truth be told, its a very big blessing to be here, he said. As Im getting closer to graduation, its such a relief to know Im only taking care of my own personal stuff (financially). Were like 150 steps ahead of the average college student. At other schools in the region, loans are still very much a part of the average college students life. A report released last fall by the Project on Student Debt noted students in the class of 2011 who borrowed in college graduated with an average of $26,600 in loan debt, up from $25,250 the year before.

Time TravelClocks Change the World If you want to know where you are or where you are going, you need a clock. That sounds weird, doesnt it? Why would anyone need a clock to get around? On land, we can look at landmarks. But on unfamiliar land, on the sea, in the air and in space, we need an accurate clock to be sure we can find our way, or navigate. The Mini Page talked with experts from the Smithsonian Institution to find out what telling time has to do with navigation. Where on Earth are we? To help figure out where everything is, people drew imaginary lines up and down and all around the globe. The equator is an imaginary line around the middle of the Earth. Lines of latitude are imaginary lines that circle the globe to the north and south of the equator. Latitude tells us how far north or south we are. Imaginary lines that go through the North and South poles are called lines of longitude (LAWN-ji-tood). Longitude helps us figure out how far east or west we are. A hemisphere is half of the globe. The Northern and Southern hemispheres are on each side of the equator. The Eastern and Western hemispheres are on each side of the prime meridian.Needing a better way For thousands of years, people navigated by the sun, moon, planets and stars. On cloudy days, travelers had to guess where they were. Sailors often stayed close to land so they wouldnt get lost. Explorers in the middle of the ocean took dangerous risks and often wandered off course. About 300 years ago, the need for accurate navigation tools grew. Europeans needed to travel to and from their colonies, and trade was growing. It was even more important that ships didnt get lost at sea. It was no longer good enough for ships to arrive at distant lands whenever they could. People needed to be able to rely on ships arriving at an exact port at a fairly exact time. In the 1700s, people had mapped only about half the planet with much detail. They needed safer, more accurate navigation tools. A new exhibit, Time and Navigation, opened at the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., April 12. The Air and Space Museum and the National Museum of American History joined forces to create this permanent exhibit.art courtesy Smithsonian InstitutionThe equator is at 0 degrees latitude. The North Pole is at 90 degrees north latitude. The South Pole is at 90 degrees south latitude. art courtesy Smithsonian InstitutionPeople marked longitude by drawing an imaginary line called the prime meridian at 0 degrees.

On the Web: At the library: from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickA Timely Matter At sea In the Northern Hemisphere, sailors can figure out their latitude by looking for the North Star. Unlike other stars, it always appears in the same place in the night sky. It is a lot harder to figure out longitude. There is no fixed point in the east or west to navigate from. Sailors could estimate their longitude by checking the position of the moon and stars. But this method did not always work well.Clock troubles People knew that the Earth takes they could figure out longitude. All they needed were two accurate clocks. One clock would tell the time at their home port. The other would tell the local time at sea. By comparing the times, navigators could tell how far east or west theyd gone. The only trouble was, in the early 1700s, there were no clocks that could keep accurate time at sea. at sea either. Depending on the temperature and humidity, the metal in the springs expanded, or it contracted, becoming tighter. This caused the clock to lose or gain time. what would be millions of dollars in todays money to anyone who could come up with an accurate marine clock. In the mid-1700s, inventors came up with the first accurate clocks for the sea, or chronometers (kruhNAHM-uh-ters).A matter of seconds Navigators needed a clock that could tell time to the exact second. Every minute the clock was off could cause a mistake of about 20 miles in navigating. Most land clocks worked with a pendulum that swung back and forth in an exact rhythm. But at sea, the wind and waves caused the pendulum to break rhythm. Pendulum clocks never worked at sea because of the motion of the ship. art courtesy Smithsonian InstitutionTo find out where they are in the open ocean, navigators can observe the stars, planets, moon and sun. The best guide is the North Star. art courtesy Smithsonian Institution photo courtesy Smithsonian InstitutionPendulum clock Chronometer from The Mini Page 2013 Universal U click Chester: Why did the clock in the library get in trouble?

They could figure out their position with an accurate clock and a tool called a sextant. They could navigate by spotting landmarks below. But fog and clouds would block out landmarks and make taking a position with a sextant impossible in the air. In addition, flying is a lot faster than sailing. On a ship, if it took 20 minutes to figure out your position, traveled far in that time. But in a plane, by the time you spent 20 minutes figuring out where you were, you could be many miles off course. At sea, navigators needed to know time to the second. Airplane pilots measured time to a fraction of a second with radio signals.Air time Pilots set their watches to a radio signal. Have you watched old movies when the pilots get the synchronized adjusted, their watches to the right time by listening to radio signals. Designing a watch accurate to the second was a hard task. With normal watches, the second hand stops each time the person resets the watch. Pilots cant afford to have watches off by several seconds.Space time Objects traveling in space fly thousands of miles an hour. In order to navigate, spacecraft need to use clocks that are accurate to billionths of a second. They use atomic clocks that are based on radiation inside an atom, which vibrates at an exact rhythm. Spacecraft rely on radio signals from Earth to navigate, just as airplane pilots do. art courtesy Smithsonian InstitutionTowers on the ground transmit radio signals to planes. A U.S. naval officer invented a watch that pilots could synchronize with radio signals.GPS We use our knowledge of time to track objects in space. We can do the opposite, too. We can use satellites to figure out where we are on Earth. This is how the GPS, or Global Positioning System, works. Today, 31 GPS satellites orbit the system to work. Atomic clocks are aboard GPS their times and send data to a GPS device on Earth. The GPS device compares the times that the different signals arrive at the location on Earth. It measures the fraction of a second it takes for the signals to reach the ground. Then the GPS receiver can figure out the distance to the satellites and its own location on Earth.The Mini Page thanks Andrew Johnston, geographer, National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution, and Carlene Stephens, curator of clocks and time, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution, for help with this issue.

C6WEDNESDAY, MAY1, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Katey Sagal, an actress and singer-songwriter, said, I think we respond well when we do something well. At the bridge table, we score well when, inter alia, responder rebids well our theme this week. Look at the North hand. What should North bid on the second round? When the auction begins like this, if responder rebids two hearts, it announces weakness (69 points). If he jumps to three hearts, he shows game-invitational values (10-12 points). This hand, though, is worth game. North should jump to four hearts. After West leads the club queen, how should South plan the play? With a different hand, North would have other ways to force to game; we will look at the most important later this week. South has four losers in his hand, one in each suit. He cannot avoid conceding tricks to the missing aces, so he must do something about the club loser immediately. Declarer must discard a club from either hand. There are two ways to do this. The better is to win the first trick in his hand with the king and to play a spade to dummys jack. East takes his ace and returns a club, but declarer wins with dummys ace and discards his third club on the spade king. Then it is time to draw trumps as quickly as possible. Alternatively, declarer can win the first trick on the board and lead the diamond jack. West wins this or the next diamond and plays another club. South takes this in his hand and continues diamonds to ditch dummys last club. He then ruffs his last club on the board and turns to trumps.

The gals yakked until late at night, so I was the first one up every morning. Im an early riser anyway. I like reading the newspaper with my breakfast, so when Id get up, Id go outside and pick up the paper and bring it in. My wife says it was wrong to get the paper before our hostess. Anyway, after a couple of days, the school friend seemed in a snit about something, and my wife says that was the reason, even though she never said so when I asked whether something was bothering her. Recently, we were invited to stay with different friends for a weekend, and I am getting no end of hassle from my wife to make sure I wait for our hosts to finish with the paper. I figure Ill just go out for coffee somewhere and buy a paper. My wife says it would be rude to take off at breakfast. Is this idiotic or what? California Dear California: It would be rude to read the paper in such a way that your hosts must wait for you to finish, or that you drag sections of it all over the house and fill in all the clues to the crossword puzzle. But there is nothing wrong with reading the paper early, putting it back together nicely and having it available to your hosts when they awaken. You can resolve this simply enough. When you arrive, inform your hosts that you are an early riser, and ask whether they would mind if you fetch their paper and read it with your coffee, promising to keep it in pristine condition for when they are ready to read it. You also could offer to go to the local coffee shop and bring back coffee and muffins (and a newspaper) for everyone else. Dear Annie: I need to vent. My daughter, my 8year-old granddaughter and I recently went to a Broadway show. After we were seated, a woman, her young daughter and her mother sat next to us. The woman was rather large, but instead of taking the aisle seat, she gave that to her mother and sat next to me. She was practically sitting on top of the chair arms due to her size and was taking up part of my space. At the end of the show, she told us we would need to climb over her because her knees hurt and she couldnt move yet. Im sure her knee problems are due to her size. This woman looked to be in her mid-30s. At this rate, she might not live long enough to see her daughter reach adulthood. Dont you think she should have taken the aisle seat? Loved the Show, Disliked the Seat Dear Loved: It seems logical that the person with the most difficulty moving would prefer the aisle seat, but perhaps the womans mother insisted on taking it. When stuck in these situations, there isnt much you can do other than show tolerance for two hours. Dear Annie: I had to laugh when I read Frustrated Cooks letter. I remember how my parents battled with me over eating broccoli when I was a kid. I was forced to finish it, so I would wash small bites down with my sweet tea, as if they were pills. Im 48 now, and broccoli is one of my favorite foods. However, I can no longer tolerate sweet tea. I think texture is often the issue, as it was for me. When I had kids, I never forced them to eat what I fixed. I gave them the option of making themselves a peanut butter sandwich if they did not want to eat my meals, but I also did not prepare a separate dish for them.
