PATFAHERTY Staff writerThanksgiving holiday weekend drivers will find gas pumps gobbling up more of their cash. The recent surge in gas prices caught experts by surprise. The month had started with prices retreating, but that only lasted a week. As of Monday, local pump prices had jumped about 35 cents a gallon for regular. Now, they are expected to flatten out or only increase slightly heading into December. The quick price hike was blamed on production problems at four refineries that supply the Gulf Coast area. And the increases have been mostly confined to the South. But there are other looming factors that could push pump prices either way. At first, it looked like millions of motorists would enjoy some of the lowest gas prices of the year during their Thanksgiving road trips. Unfortunately, that wont be the case, said AAA spokeswoman Jessica Brady. The good news is the spike in pump prices should be temporary. Once Gulf Coast refineries return to full production, drivers should see gas prices move back on a downward path. I do think the rate of drastic increases will slow down, she said. We saw a pretty stark jump; its specific to Florida and the Southeast. Brady added that Floridas average gas was on a par with last year at this time. In 2012 prices dropped heading into the Christmas season, then started climbing with the New Year, finally peaking in late February in the $3.90-a-gallon range. Along with the refinery issues, nationwide, there has been a slight uptick in consumer demand also putting pressure on supplies, according to Gregg Laskoski, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy.com. We could actually see prices flatten out a little this week, he said, if weather forecasts prove accurate. If the anticipated bad weather hits much of nation as predicted for Thanksgiving weekend, demand would be expected to decrease. Generally when that happens, prices go down, he said. But, until we know the four refineries have resolved their production problems, we could see higher prices into early December. Laskoski cited the improving situation with Iran as another factor that could affect oil supply and eventually help ease gas prices. Competition is still another factor in local pump prices.

Legal issues continue to block boards MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Distrust and animosity built up over four years of litigation in the Citrus Memorial hospital saga continues and threatens to derail a transaction agreement with Hospital Corporation of America. While the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation voted Monday to join the Citrus County Hospital Board in sending a proposed letter of intent to HCA, a final signing of the letter in mid-December hinges on both boards reaching agreement on when and how to settle three pending lawsuits. The CCHB is proposing to dismiss the lawsuits at transaction closing with HCA. Foundation members balked at that, saying that legal claims against individual members of the foundation and hospital chief executive officer Ryan Beaty should be dismissed at the signing of the letter of intent. CCHB attorney Bill Grant predicted the hospital board would not agree to that plan because it dismisses two lawsuits brought by the CCHB while keeping active one lawsuit brought by the foundation. The lawsuits, including those involving contractual payments and severance agreements, have had no activity in more than a year as the boards have negotiated toward their conclusions. Still pending also is the foundations lawsuit challenging the 2011 state law that gave CCHB trustees oversight of the hospital. The state Supreme Court heard the case earlier this month; foundation attorney Clark Stillwell said a decision might be a year away. Both Grant and Stillwell discussed the impact that decision could have. Grant acknowledged that holding off dismissal of the lawsuits until closing is leverage to keep the foundation from reneging on the HCA agreement in Storm moves east Travelers cast wary eye Associated PressDALLAS A winter storm blamed for at least 11 fatal accidents in the West, Texas and Arkansas threatens to dampen the Thanksgiving holiday for millions of Americans traveling this week. Nearly 300 American Airlines and American Eagle flights were canceled in and out of DallasFort Worth International Airport on Monday due to the weather, spokeswoman Laura Masvidal said, mirroring disruptions at the air hub a day earlier. Some of the countrys busiest airports New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and Charlotte, N.C. could see big delays. Icy roads led to hundreds of accidents and at least 11 deaths, half of them in Texas. On Monday, the storm brought a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain to parts of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, southern Kansas and Texas. But as the storm continues east, there are fears of heavy rain along the busy Interstate 95 corridor and sleet, freezing rain and snow away from the coast and at higher elevations. Tom Kines, a meteorologist with AccuWeather, said it will be primarily a rain event for the East Coast, with up to three inches of rain dousing travelers. The further inland you get especially as you get into that higher terrain you are going to deal with frozen precipitation, Kines said. Snow could fall in western Pennsylvania and the interior of Thanksgivukkah shines light on modern Jewish culture HERBSCRIBNER Deseret News Every year, Abby Knuckey hangs a sheet of paper on her fridge. She leaves it there for a day or two and inspects it every so often during her trips to the pantry. By the time she takes it off the fridge, the papers bare white space is filled with written words revealing her childrens winter holiday wishes. Knuckey calls it her Hanukkah List, and its given to her kids to fill out ahead of the Jewish holiday. But this year, instead of reading the sheet in December when cards, cups and decorations of blue usually flood department stores everywhere, the Jewish calendar shows the holiday falling in November, around Thanksgiving time, instead of around Christmas. This is the first time the Jewish calendar has overlapped with the Western calendar in 125 years. Knuckey is an American Jew celebrating Thanksgivukkah a super holiday created by the overlap of the first full day of the eight-day Hanukkah, which begins this year on the evening of Nov.27. By the time the turkey is carved and the pie is eaten, many American Jewish families will be lighting the menorah (or, in some cases, the menurkey), a ritual that pays tribute to the ancient story of Hanukkah, when the oil to light the Holy Temples menorah lasted not just one day but for eight. While the religious holiday, which is set by the Jewish calendar, typically falls around Christmas, this years Thanksgivukkah is raising questions for some Jews around identity. With a recent Pew Research Center study showing that 22percent of American Jews dont consider themselves religious, Hanukkahs early arrival this year is causing many American Jews to wonder how Jewish (in a religious sense) they really are and how theyre going to handle the crossover holiday. Will they just celebrate Thanksgiving, or will they hold Hannukkah as part of the See CULTURE/ Page A5 See STORM/ Page A8 Pump prices soar MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileFluctuating gas prices have swiftly trended upward in the Southeast as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches. According to experts, the holiday is not the driver for the rise in pump prices in the region; it is production problems at Gulf Coast refineries.

Police officer delivers surpriseMELBOURNE When a police officer spotted a first grader with shoes that were flapping in the breeze during a visit to a Melbourne elementary school, he sprang into action. Florida Today reported the officer asked the girl her shoe size, then returned a short time later with two brand new pairs of shoes one fuchsia and the other bright orange along with matching socks. But he slipped away last week before anyone got his name. Croton Elementary School bookkeeper Renee Carr said the gesture made the little girls day. Carr said the girl was just in heaven and proudly showed off her new shoes.Two sentenced in gambling schemeSANFORD Two lowerlevel managers pleaded guilty in a Florida court Monday as prosecutors moved ahead on the cases of dozens of defendants charged with using a veterans organization called Allied Veterans as a front for a $300 million gambling operation. Richard Rubino and Charles Black pleaded guilty to two counts each of possession of a slot machine in Seminole County Court. They were assessed courts costs and given a $50 prosecution charge. Some 13 charges were dropped against Rubino, and 19 charges we dropped against Black, who helped operate four casinos. A sentencing hearing involving several dozen more Allied Veterans defendants is set for Tuesday. Even though the Internet cafes were being operated under the aegis of Allied Veterans of the World, very little of the $300 million the businesses earned actually went to veterans, prosecutors said.Panther, 12, to go on exhibit at zooWEST PALM BEACH A 12-year-old Florida panther named Mirasol will go on exhibit in December at the Palm Beach Zoo. The panther called Mira has been staying in a required quarantine since her arrival at the West Palm Beach zoo in October. Before that, Mira lived at the South Florida Wildlife rehabilitation Center, which closed after its founder was diagnosed with a terminal illness. He contacted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which sought placement of the animals living at his shelter. Miras arrival is so exciting for us, because she serves as a symbol of the vanishing South Florida ecosystem, said Jan Steele, the zoos general curator. We hope that by giving our guests the chance to see her, as an animal that is native to our own region, we will increase awareness of the plight of the Florida panthers in the wild. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A persistent critic of Gov. Rick Scott filed lawsuits on Monday accusing top Florida officials of flouting the states public records laws by failing to turn over emails and other documents. The lawsuits contend the Scott administration altered calendars of one top aide, relied on private email accounts and waited more than a year to hand over text messages of another aide. The lawsuit against Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi says her office refused to hand over notes from meetings Bondi kept on her iPad and didnt provide emails from private accounts that deal with state business. Tallahassee attorney Steven Andrews, who is embroiled in a land dispute with the governor and members of the Cabinet, said he decided to file the lawsuits after failing to get records he has been seeking for months. We finally got tired of them violating the Florida Constitution and not producing public records, said Andrews. Jennifer Meale, a spokeswoman for Bondi, maintained that every public records request received by this office is fulfilled in compliance with applicable law. Meale said that Bondis office has already given Andrews information related to 12 separate requests. Melissa Sellers, a spokeswoman for Scott, did not address the allegations in the lawsuit directly. But she said that the Scott administration had turned over information related to 78 separate requests that Andrews had made of the governors office and other state agencies.

The Defense of Life, Home, or Property bill, which has been called the warning shot bill, was filed Monday by Sen. Thad Altman, R-Viera. The measure is a companion to a proposal (HB 89) by Rep. Neil Combee, R-Polk City, and would amend the stand your ground self-defense law. The Senate bill says, in part, that it is the intent of the Legislature that a person be immunized from prosecution if he or she acts in such a manner as to protect life, home, or property from an imminent or actual unlawful activity. Combees proposal has already been backed by the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee. A similar measure by Combee failed to advance during the 2013 legislative session. The prior attempt sought to amend the states 10-20-Life sentencing law. Under the 10-20-Life law, possessing a gun while committing certain crimes is punishable by at least 10 years in prison, discharging a gun while committing those crimes is punishable by at least 20 years in prison, and hurting or killing someone during those crimes is punishable by 25 years to life in prison.

Associated PressORLANDO The mother of a Florida girl who committed suicide after complaining about being bullied said Monday that she will push lawmakers to pass new anti-bullying legislation because current laws dont do enough to protect children. Tricia Norman and her attorney also said during a news conference that she plans to file wrongful death lawsuits against those she believes are responsible for her daughters death, though she refused to identify those people specifically. I intend to hold them accountable to the full extent of the law, Norman said. Rebecca Sedwick jumped to her death at an abandoned concrete plant in September. A month later, the Polk County Sheriffs Office arrested two of her classmates, ages 12 and 14, on charges of aggravated stalking. Those charges were dropped last week because of insufficient evidence, and an attorney for the younger classmate has indicated he will pursue a lawsuit against the sheriffs office. The Associated Press generally does not identify juveniles charged with crimes, though the younger girl has spoken publicly alongside her family about the matter. During an appearance on NBCs Today show last week, Katelyn Roman said that she had done nothing wrong but that Sedwicks death taught her the importance of standing up to bullying. Norman said she was upset that Rebeccas classmates hadnt offered an apology. I know having anger in my heart is not good, Norman said. I keep waiting for an apology I know will never come. This lack of personal responsibility is beyond upsetting. Under the state law proposal championed by Norman and her attorney, Matt Morgan, students who bully repeatedly could be sent to juvenile detention. Under a federal law proposal they are supporting, schools receiving public funds would be required to have anti-bullying procedures in place and must follow those procedures. Morgan wouldnt say which lawmakers, if any, he had found to sponsor the legislative proposals in the Florida Legislature and Congress. At a news conference after the arrest of Rebeccas classmates, Sheriff Grady Judd said the bullying began about a year ago after the 14-year-old girl started dating Rebeccas ex-boyfriend. The older girl threatened to fight Rebecca while they were sixthgraders at a middle school in Lakeland and told her to drink bleach and die, the sheriff had said. She also persuaded the younger girl to bully Rebecca, even though they had been best friends, the sheriff said. Mother of bullied girl: Toughen laws Daughter committed suicide after alledgedly being tormented by peers Special to the ChronicleTALLAHASSEE Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends to spend time together and give thanks for the blessings they enjoy. It is also one of the busiest travel periods of the year. To help ensure motorists make it to their destinations safely, the Florida Highway Patrol will increase its presence on Floridas roads throughout the four-day holiday weekend starting Thursday, Nov.28. FHP with the help of its auxiliary and reserve troopers, will be participating in the nationwide effort known as Operation CARE (Combined Accident Reduction Effort). This years Operation CARE will focus on impaired driving, speeding, following too closely and other aggressive diving behaviors during the holiday weekend. Troopers will also conduct strict enforcement of safety belt and child restraint laws. The FHP wishes everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday, said Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. In an effort to keep motorists safe, troopers will be concentrating their enforcement efforts on impaired driving, unlawful speed, aggressive driving, and those who fail to buckle up. During last years Thanksgiving holiday period, FHP troopers issued more than 9,300 citations for traffic related violations. Of those, 4,039 drivers were cited for speeding, 657 for safety belt violations, and 145 drivers were arrested for driving uder the ifluence. FHP troopers also provided roadside assistance to more than 2,300 motorists. FHP offers the following tips to help you and your family arrive at your destination safely: Buckle up every time. A seatbelt is your vehicles most important safety feature. Obey all speed limits, bearing in mind that traffic congestion may require driving more slowly. Drive sober and remember, buzzed driving is drunk driving. Dont drive distracted: Anything that takes your full attention off of the road, even for a second, could be deadly. This includes texting, changing the radio station, talking to passengers, etc. Get plenty of rest before setting out on a long trip. State troopers to be out in force during holiday Officials stress commitment to keeping roadways safe during seasonal rush Kindergarten and firstgrade classes at Lecanto Primary School got a hands-on lesson literally about where milk comes from when dairy farmers from M&B Products let them take a try at milking a faux cow Friday. M&B cares for 700 cows at its Lecanto facility and milks them three times a day. Although the students squirmed during a video presentation that explained the milking process from grass to container, they perked up when dairy farm manager Leon McClellan asked, What sound does a cow make? Moo! they answered in unison. We do this with the kids so they understand that milk comes from cows, not from the store, McClellan said.

The American singer distributed crayons and coloring books to children at the Villamor Air Base grandstand, where evacuees from eastern Leyte and Samar provinces arrive via C-130 planes. Social Welfare Department officer Jane Abello said Keys stayed for about half an hour to chat with evacuees. The R&B star was in Manila for a concert Monday at the seaside MOA Arena. The Philippine Star earlier quoted her as saying that music has a way of lifting your spirit and thats what I hope to do for the Filipino people. Keys tweeted three days after the Nov. 8 typhoon: To the people of the Philippines my heart is with you.Statuette from Maltese Falcon at NYC auctionNEW YORK A statuette of a bird featured in the classic 1941 detective thriller The Maltese Falcon is being auctioned in New York City. The black figurine is one of two known cast lead statuettes made for John Hustons screen version of the film, but the only one confirmed by Warner Bros. archives as having appeared in the movie, according to Bonhams auction house, which declined to provide a pre-sale estimate. It has a Warner Bros. inventory number etched into the base. The figurine bears the same name as the movie that starred Humphrey Bogart as private eye Sam Spade. The 45-pound, 12-inch-tall prop has a bent right tail feather damage incurred during filming, Bonhams said. Actress Lee Patrick, who played Spades secretary, Effie, dropped it while handing it to Bogart.Katie Couric to anchor news program for YahooSAN FRANCISCO Katie Couric is joining Yahoo to anchor a news program for the Internet company as it tries to expand its audience and sell more advertising. Mondays announcement confirms recent published reports that Couric would diversify into online video programming after spending decades in broadcast television as a talk-show host and news anchor. Couric, 56, will continue to host her daytime talk show, Katie, on ABC even after she becomes Yahoos global anchor beginning next year. The new job at Yahoo Inc. will give Couric an opportunity to report on breaking news events around the world and interview major international figures. Joining Yahoo offers a tremendous opportunity to reach people all around the world in the way that theyre using and consuming media today, Couric said in a statement. Since leaving Google Inc. to head Yahoo 16 months ago, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has been trying to make Yahoos services more alluring so people will visit them on a regular basis and dwell for longer periods. In doing so, she is hoping Yahoo will be able to sell more digital ads and boost the Sunnyvale, Calif., companys lackluster revenue growth.

holiday as well?Not a big dealKnuckey doesnt see anything special about the traditional celebration of Hanukkah. Hanukkahs not a big deal, she said. Thats the feeling among many American Jewish families, said Shevy Baskin, editorial assistant for My Jewish World, a Jewish information website. Around the world, and historically, Hanukkah isnt a major holiday and its only American culture that glamorizes it, Baskin said. Most American Jews wont be concerned with Thanksgivukkah because Hanukkah has sometimes drifted into January, Baskin said, and because of its religious insignificance compared to other Jewish holidays such as Yom Kippur, a day of atonement, or Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year celebration. In a survey conducted by Ellen Zimmerman from Jewish Holidays in a Box, a grass-roots Jewish holiday product company, 20percent of respondents said that melding Hanukkah and Thanksgiving will dilute the religious significance of the Jewish holy day. Zimmerman said one mother raised concern about December turning into an entire month of Christmas, without Hanukkah around to soften the blow for Jewish children. This leaves little reason to celebrate, she said. Without their own holiday to celebrate, by the time the bright Christmas lights start flashing, Zimmerman said, some Jewish families might be left in the dark.Mixing holidaysBut others, like Knuckey, will be flipping the switch and embracing the super holiday. In years when Hanukkah falls in December, Knuckey sometimes doesnt celebrate the religious day until January. Her family is always busy coordinating work schedules and after-school activities. By the time everyones finally free, its mid-January, well after the traditional holiday season. Her familys Hanukkah usually consists of cuddling up, chowing on Chinese food and watching a movie. Once night falls, the kids are ripping open their gifts. Now theyll be mixing that with Thanksgiving dinner. Itll kill two birds with one stone, she said. Hanukkah is shifting away from its Christmas ties and opening up the door for more Jewish families to partake in the festivities, Baskin said, adding that Thanksgivukkah will help decouple-ize Christmas and Hanukkah. You dont have to do this whitewashing thing like Americans will do with Christmas and Hanukkah being about giving and lights and all of these generic terms, Baskin said. Knuckeys fine with Hanukkahs decoupling from Christmas this year. Her husband is Christian, and her immediate family exchanges gifts under the willowing verdant branches of a Christmas tree anyway. Knuckey said Thanksgivukkah will make December easier. The chaos to find Hanukkah and Christmas gifts will subside, she said. Zimmerman said some are thrilled with Thanksgivukkah because its going to bring families together. Others, she said, are excited about mixing latkes and cranberry sauce or blending dishes together. Knuckey and her family hail from the American Jewish hub of New Jersey, where 6 percent of the population identifies as Jewish, according to the Pew Research Center. And they plan on mixing the two holidays together. But even across the country in the Midwest, Jewish families are gearing up for Thanksgivukkah. Jane and Harvey Baker, from Missouri, where only 1 percent identify as Jewish, are looking forward to the super holiday. Harvey Baker praised Thanksgivukkah because itll be a breath of fresh air for their Hanukkah celebrations. In all other years, some come to our Thanksgiving dinner and some come to our Hanukkah celebrations, said Harvey Baker, an American Jew from St. Louis. It will be great to combine the holidays and the people who are part of each separate holiday. Jane Baker said shes going to make yam potato latkes and apple turkey. Her family will be mixing games theyll spin the dreidel and build pilgrim hats, both traditions they do each year for the two holidays before lighting the menorah. Thanksgivukkah is restoring some identity to the Jewish holiday. Though it is not a major holiday on the Jewish calendar, its often been associated with Christmas and the winter holiday season, said Baskin, the editorial assistant. Now, being that the eight-day stretch ends in the beginning of December according to the Jewish calendar, Hanukkah will find its own footing and be a unique holiday that American Jews can celebrate, Baskin said. Zimmerman said Thanksgivukkah may make December a little more difficult for some families, but the restoration of family time and faith is ever present. And for others like Knuckey, things will be easier. Unlike years past, Knuckey can easily bring her family together and enjoy the celebrations on time. She wont be late to the holiday this year. Shell be precisely on time. Its really nice to get the family together and celebrate happy occasions, Knuckey said. Its a happy day.

The number of food stamp dependents has grown steadily since 2007, with a total overall increase of 70 percent, according to the Sunlight Foundation Reporting Group. The boost in food stamp use is just one indicator of how many Americans will be struggling to have a good Thanksgiving meal this year, especially given the fact that the average person on food stamps has a budget of just $1 to $1.25 per meal, the Huffington Post reported. According to an MSNBC article, food banks across the nation are seeing increased numbers this Thanksgiving. Food pantries around the country are reporting a precipitous rise in the number of new visitors as people who were previously able to make do on food stamps get hit with cuts they cant afford, MSNBC reported. CBS Boston reports that in Framingham, Mass., food bank patron requests have increased 400 percent this year. These are folks you wouldnt normally expect to be needing help. On top of those always in need, its a big group and a big deal, said Paul Mina president of United Way Tri-County, which runs the food pantry, according to CBS. The average cost for a Thanksgiving meal is almost $50, the Huffington Post reported. But recent statistics show food expenses are just as trying without the presence of the holidays. In northern states, expenses generally increase during the winter months as heating bills rise. A 2010 survey by the Feeding America food bank network found nearly half of its clients 46percent, to be exact had at one point been forced to choose between paying for food and paying for utilities, according to MSNBC.Email Emmilie BuchananWhitlock at ebuchanan@ deseretnews.com; Twitter: emmiliewhitlock.

Williams died last week of a heart attack in Ocean Springs, Miss., his daughter, Jennifer Smith, said Monday. He was 72. He worked for a Kentucky law firm representing the then-Brown & Williamson Tobacco Corp. and leaked thousands of pages of internal memos and studies concerning smoking and health that provided newfound ammunition to tobacco opponents. The information made national headlines. News organizations reported the information showed Brown & Williamson executives knew decades earlier that nicotine was addictive and that they funneled potentially damaging documents to lawyers to keep them secret. A few years later, the tobacco industry agreed to a massive settlement with the states over smoking-related health costs. Mike Moore, as Mississippis attorney general during that era, was at the forefront of the legal fight against the tobacco industry. He remembered Williams on Monday for making a significant contribution to the effort that put cigarette makers on the defensive. The now-famous Brown & Williamson documents that Merrell was able to provide us, under extraordinary circumstances and threat, changed the course of our litigation, Moore said in an email. We got on a plane and took those documents to Congress and the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration). The three big lies cigarettes dont cause cancer, nicotine is not addictive and we dont market to kids were all refuted by the B&W documents Merrell obtained. Williams said his role in the legal fight took a personal toll. He told The Courier-Journal that the pressures contributed to a divorce, and he eventually moved to Mississippi.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Despite the poisonous environment in Congress, chances are improving for a smallscale budget deal next month that would ease automatic spending decreases that threaten to cut more deeply into domestic programs and military priorities in 2014. Neither party will get its biggest priority for Democrats, higher taxes; for Republicans, slowing the exploding cost of retirement programs. But a mutual desire to avert another government shutdown sets the stage for splitting the $91 billion difference between what Senate Democrats and House Republicans want to spend next year on operating budgets of the Pentagon and domestic agencies. Any deal reached by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, RWis., and his counterpart in the Senate, Patty Murray, could still be rejected by their colleagues. But both profess optimism while working hard to minimize potentially damaging leaks that could derail their efforts. Murray, D-Wash., plans to return to the Capitol the week after Thanksgiving to continue behind-closeddoor negotiations even though the Senate will remain on recess. Hopefully, we can finish, but well see, Murray said as she left the Capitol last week. I can just say were working really hard to get an agreement. Democratic and GOP aides familiar with the talks report progress but say there is no agreement yet. The aides spoke on condition of anonymity because they arent authorized to talk publicly about the negotiations. Both Ryan, the 2012 GOP nominee for vice president, and Murray were members of earlier deficit panels that failed to strike large-scale budget deals. This time, theyve set their sights considerably lower: a package of deficit savings sufficient to pay for restoring some but not all of the automatic spending cuts triggered by the inability of Congress and the president to follow up on a 2011 deficit-shaving accord. The automatic cuts known as sequestration require $109 billion in spending cuts every year through fiscal 2021 compared with limits set by the 2011 deal. About $90 billion of those cuts would come from agency budgets set by annual spending bills; the rest comes from cuts to a handful of so-called mandatory programs, including a 2 percent cut in Medicare reimbursements to health care providers. Those Medicare cuts are likely to remain in place. Ryan and Murray appear to be focusing on proposals left over from Murrays days as co-chairman of the failed 2011 deficit supercommittee and earlier efforts by Vice President Joe Biden. Those measures include requiring federal workers to contribute more for their pensions, new security fees on air travel, and higher premiums on companies whose pension plans are insured by the government. Republicans are holding firm against using money from closing tax loopholes as part of the agreement. New tax revenue from closing loopholes should instead be used to lower tax rates, they say. Democrats have taken curbs in Social Security cost-of-living increases and higher Medicare premiums on upper-income beneficiaries off the table. Instead, Democrats want to claim savings from repealing much-criticized direct payments that the government makes to farmers whether or not they plant a crop. House Speaker John Boehner, ROhio, objects to including any savings from ending that farm subsidy as part of the budget deal. Ryan has told other Republicans that he thinks Murray will relent on taxes. Shell likely want something in return. Democrats, for instance, have mounted a holiday season campaign to spend $25 billion to extend jobless benefits averaging less than $300 a month to the long-term unemployed. Benefits for 1.3 million people expire at the end of December. Those longterm jobless benefits once added up to 73 weeks in federal benefits to the 26 weeks of state benefits for a maximum of 99 weeks. Now, 73 weeks is the maximum allowed, with the nationwide average of 54 weeks. Aides to Murray and Ryan wont go into details, but their playbook of options is heavily drawn from a roster of so-called non-health mandatory spending that was negotiated at length during the supercommittee talks and an earlier 2011 round of talks led by Vice President Joe Biden and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va. RaceTrac provides competitive fuel prices and we strive to offer our guests the best value among our local competition, RaceTrac spokeswoman Ashleigh Collins said. Our fuel prices are largely driven by competitor pricing in the local market and we constantly survey our local competition to determine store-specific pricing.Thanksgiving travelBrady said that nationwide, Thanksgiving travel is expected to be down slightly from last year. She said it is not be attributed too much to gas prices, but a lack of consumer confidence and uncertainly, a holdover from the government shutdown. According to AAA, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving will be the busiest single day of travel with 37 percent of travelers departing. The majority plan to return home on Sunday, Dec. 1. Thanksgiving travel hit a four-year peak last year after recession-related declines in 2008 and 2009. favor of Tampa General Hospital, which was the first choice for many foundation members. The foundation could do that if it wins the Supreme Court case, he said. This is your leverage against us? foundation chairwoman Sandy Chadwick asked. Yes maam, Grant replied. Beaty said the foundation is committed to HCA. Were not a bunch of liars here, he said. Stillwell said that, conversely, if the CCHB wins it could keep alive lawsuits against individual foundation members and provide no funding for their defense. Stillwell suggested both boards agree that whoever wins the Supreme Court case will not interfere with the HCA process or resurrect dormant lawsuits. Time for agreeing to a non-binding letter of intent with HCA is of the essence. The CCHB transaction attorney has repeatedly warned board members not to delay signing the letter, and hospital chief financial officer Mark Williams said holders of Citrus Memorials $45million in bonds have indicated they want to see movement on the transaction or the hospital faces potential default. The CCHB has said it will release $2million to the hospital once the final letter of intent is signed. The two boards have a joint meeting Dec.16 where they are expected to hash out the details. While some foundation members said they didnt want to wait until the transaction closing to end the lawsuits, others said the public has grown weary of the debate. The trust by the people in Citrus County is zero for both boards, foundation director Dr. Venugopala Reddy said. Director Dr. Carlton Fairbanks said he would be willing to give CCHB benefit of the doubt. Its time one side simply takes the other side at its word, he said. Im willing to blink to move this forward.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com. New England. Up to 9 inches could blanket northern parts of West Virginia, where the National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning from Tuesday morning through Wednesday afternoon. Jeff Smidt is traveling Wednesday from his home in Toronto to visit his family in Andover, Mass., just outside Boston. My understanding is that Im traveling at like the worst time ever, he said. Smidt tried to get on an earlier flight but JetBlue told him it isnt waiving any change fees yet. Im just hoping I also dont become a statistic during the holiday weekend, he said. Worst comes to worst, it will be an eight-hour trek down Interstate 90. Ninety percent of travelers this week will drive, according to AAA, and an estimated 38.9 million people 1.6 percent fewer than last year are expected to drive 50 miles or more from their home. Gas is about 15 cents cheaper than last year, AAA said Monday, with a gallon of regular selling for $3.28. The car-lobbying group and travel agency says Wednesday will be the busiest travel day, a forecast based on a formula that factors in consumer confidence, stock market performance, unemployment and a survey of 418 people that has a 6 percent margin of error. Air travel will be busier and more expensive than usual this Thanksgiving. This holiday will likely see the most air travelers since 2007, according to Airlines for America, the industrys trade and lobbying group, with the busiest day being Sunday, an estimated 2.56 million passengers. Wednesday is expected to be the secondbusiest with 2.42 million passengers. The average domestic airfare is up 9.5 percent from last Thanksgiving to $313, according to the Airlines Reporting Corp., which processes tickets sold online and by traditional travel agencies. Meanwhile, Amtrak prices in September the most recent month for which data is available were up more than 4 percent from last year. Adding to the usual stress of holiday travel, though, is the weather thats ahead for much of the country. Already, the storm system dropped several inches of snow last week in New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma and West Texas. In Arkansas, state police reported that a Franklin woman was killed Monday morning when she lost control of her car on an icy bridge over the Strawberry River in the northcentral part of the state. Her car collided head-on with an oncoming vehicle, police said. Some of the worst weather was expected in the Ouachita Mountains of western Arkansas but most of the region saw only sporadic ice and very cold temperatures. You can see it on the power lines but the roads are fine, said Courtney ONeal-Walden, who planned to close her Dairyette restaurant in Mount Ida four hours early because business was slow. In Texas, up to 44,000 people, mostly in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, were without power earlier in the day, but that number had dropped considerably by the afternoon.A8TUESDAY, NOVEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000GRE7 *Deductibles & co-pay may apply. 609 S.

Associated PressWASHINGTON The United States is spewing 50 percent more methane a potent heat-trapping gas than the federal government estimates, a new comprehensive scientific study says. Much of it is coming from just three states: Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. That means methane may be a bigger global warming issue than thought, scientists say. Methane is 21 times more potent at trapping heat than carbon dioxide, the most abundant global warming gas, although it doesnt stay in the air as long. Much of that extra methane, also called natural gas, seems to be coming from livestock, including manure, belches and flatulence, as well as leaks from refining and drilling for oil and gas, the study says. It was published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. The study estimates that in 2008, the U.S. poured 49 million tons of methane into the air. That means U.S. methane emissions trapped about as much heat as all the carbon dioxide pollution coming from cars, trucks and planes in the country in six months. Thats more than the 32 million tons estimated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Administration or the nearly 29 million tons reckoned by the European Commission. Something is very much off in the inventories, said study co-author Anna Michalak, an Earth scientist at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Stanford, Calif. The total U.S. impact on the worlds energy budget is different than we thought, and its worse. EPA spokeswoman Alisha Johnson said her agency hasnt had time to go through the study yet, but hopes it will help refine our estimates going forward. While the world has a good handle on how much carbon dioxide is pumped into the air, scientists have been more baffled by methane emissions. They have had to use computer models to estimate how much methane is going into that air. This study, however, was based on nearly 13,000 measurements from airplane flights and tall towers, the most used in any such research.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, NOVEMBER26, 2013 A9 000GPYR 000GPY2 Supreme Court weighs new health law dispute Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obamas health care law is headed for a new Supreme Court showdown over companies religious objections to the laws birth-control mandate. Amid the troubled rollout of the health law, and 17 months after the justices upheld it, the Obama administration is defending a provision that requires most employers that offer health insurance to their workers to provide a range of preventive health benefits, including contraception. Roughly 40 for-profit companies have sued, arguing they should not be forced to cover some or all forms of birth control because doing so would violate their religious beliefs. Both sides want the justices to settle an issue that has divided lower courts. The high court could announce its decision whether to take up the topic as early as Tuesday, following its closed-door meeting. Arguments probably would take place in late March with a decision expected in late June. The key issue is whether profit-making corporations can assert religious beliefs under the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Nearly four years ago, the justices expanded the concept of corporate personhood, saying in the Citizens United case that corporations have the right to participate in the political process the same way that individuals do. The administration wants the court to hear its appeal of the Denver-based federal appeals court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby, an Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts chain that calls itself a biblically founded business and is closed on Sundays. Founded in 1972, the company now operates more than 500 stores in 41 states and employs more than 13,000 full-time employees who are eligible for health insurance. The Green family, Hobby Lobbys owners, also owns the Mardel Christian bookstore chain. The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said corporations can be protected by the 1993 law in the same manner as individuals, and that the contraceptive-coverage requirement substantially burdens Hobby Lobby and Mardels rights under the law. In its Supreme Court brief, the administration said the appeals court ruling was wrong and, if allowed to stand would make the law a sword used to deny employees of for-profit commercial enterprises the benefits and protections of generally applicable laws. In two other cases, courts ruled for the administration. Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp., a Pennsylvania company that employs 950 people in making wood cabinets, is owned by a Mennonite family. Autocam Corp. is a Michigan-based maker of auto parts and medical devices that employs more than 650 people in the U.S. The companies that have sued over the mandate have objections to different forms of birth control. Conestoga Wood objects to the coverage of Plan B and Ella, two emergency contraceptives that work mostly by preventing ovulation. The FDA says on its website that Plan B may also work by preventing fertilization of an egg ... or by preventing attachment (implanta tion) to the womb (uterus), while Ella also may work by changing of the lining of the uterus so as to prevent implantation. Hobby Lobby objects to those two forms of contraception as well as two types of intrauterine devices (IUDs). Its owners say they believe life begins at conception, and they oppose only birth control methods that can prevent implantation of a fertilized egg in the uterus, but not other forms of contraception. Autocam doesnt want to pay for any contraception for its employees because of its owners Roman Catholic beliefs. Physicians for Reproductive Health, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and other medical groups tell the court that the scientific and legal definition of a pregnancy begins with implantation, not fertilization. Contraceptives that prevent fertilization from occurring, or even prevent implantation, do not cause abortion regardless of an individuals personal or religious beliefs or mores, the groups said. Associated PressCustomers are shown May 22 at a Hobby Lobby store in Denver. President Barack Obamas health care law is headed for a new SupremeCourt showdown over companies religious objections to the laws birth-control mandate. Study: US spewing 50 pct more methane than EPA says
Associated PressJACKSONVILLE There are three growlers perched above the tap handles at Intuition Ale Works. One of the beer jugs holds 32 ounces, another 64, and the largest 128. Two of them can be sold lawfully in Florida; the third has a handwritten sign saying Legalize it as it sits on display at the brewery. And its probably not the one youd guess. Customers can have as many of the largest containers, with a full gallon, or the smallest jugs, with a quart, filled as they please. Its the half-gallon growler a 64-ounce container thats popular from coast to coast thats illegal, thanks to Floridas history of odd bottle laws. Its such a stupid law, said Ben Davis, owner of Intuition Ale Works. You can come in here and buy a gallon, you can buy a quart, you can buy two quarts, but I cant sell you a half-gallon. And its the industry standard. You go to Colorado, you go to a brewery there and say Hey, I want a growler of X beer, they dont ask you, Hey! Do you want it in a quart or do you want it in a gallon? After several years of trying, the next legislative session could be the one that sees containers made legal, joining 47 other states that allow half-gallon growlers. That is, if the jugs dont get tangled up in more complicated issues surrounding Floridas fast-growing craft beer industry. Florida now restricts beer sales to containers of 32 ounces or less, or 128 ounces or more but nothing in between. Last spring a bill that would have legalized the half-gallon growlers died when Rep. Debbie Mayfield refused to bring it up for a vote in the House Business and Professional Regulation Subcommittee, which she chairs. Its not that she has a problem with growlers, she said, but rather she wants to address the craft beer industry as a whole in an effort to help it grow. Brewers would absolutely like to see some changes in distribution laws. For example, a brewery cannot sell beer wholesale directly to a retailer it has to go through a distributor. If a guy across the street wants a keg of your beer, is it really rational for (a distributor) to have to pick up the beer, drive it to a facility thats bonded 100 miles away and then bring it back over to move it six feet? It doesnt make a lot of sense, said Josh Aubuchon, executive director of the Florida Brewers Guild. Associated PressNEW YORK So long, dingy sweatpants. Workout clothes for women, once relegated to the back of the closet, are moving to the front of the fashion scene. Yoga pants are the new jeans, neon sports bras have become the it accessory and long athletic socks are hipper than high heels. Ive actually had more excitement buying workout gear than normal jeans and dresses, said Amanda Kleinhenz, 27, who wears workout gear both in and outside of the gym in Cleveland. I want to look good. Blame it on the push by many Americans toward a more active lifestyle. Or call it an extension of the nations fascination with fashion. Either way, these days jogging suits are just as likely to be seen on a runway in New York as a treadmill in Texas. In fact, sales of workout gear are growing faster than sales of everyday clothing by a lot. Spending on workout clothes jumped 7percent to $31.6billion during the 12-month period that ended in August from the same period a year ago. That compares with a 1percent rise in spending for other clothing to about $169.2billion. But these arent cheap cotton T-shirts and spandex jumpsuits. Top designers like Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney and Alexander Wang all rolled out fitness chic clothing lines, with everything from $50 leggings to $125 zip-front hoodies and $225 long john sweatpants. And big nationwide retailers like Gap, Forever 21, Victoria Secret and Macys have fitness lines, too. Active has become an important part of what customers are wearing, said Karen Hoguet, chief financial officer at Macys, which is expanding its active wear label to 400 stores from 160. Sometimes its for athletic endeavors. Sometimes its just to run errands. This is the latest evolution in fitness fashion. Sweatpants and tees were the hallmark of athletic clothing for decades. That changed with the invention of spandex in 1959, then again with the aerobics craze of the 1980s when tights, leotards, legwarmers and nylon track suits became popular. Athletic gear giants like Nike, Reebok and Adidas were popular for years as synthetic material like Gore Tex and Lyrcra gained popularity because of their performance qualities. Then, in the late 1990s, it became cool to wear workout clothes everywhere after the Lululemon athletic chain opened and gained a loyal following of fitness enthusiasts willing to shell out $100 for yoga pants. Annie Georgia Greenberg, a New York editor for style blog Refinery29, said she noticed the trend at the New York Fashion week in September as more people were choosing shoes like the neon Nike Free Flyknit over designer pumps. Greenberg herself paired a Golds Gym T-shirt and Adidas Samba sneakers with a two-piece bejeweled suit something she wouldnt have done a couple of years ago. It is almost cooler to be comfortable and athletic and feel like yourself than to be overly glam, Greenberg said. Fitness chic also sends a message to others that you are living a healthy lifestyle, said Noreen Naroo, senior creative director for apparel at fitness brand Under Armour. Recently, Naroo did a mile run at her daughters elementary school with leggings, a sports bra, t-shirt and sneakers. She changed from her sneakers into boots to go to work. This is exactly what women are doing running between work and play, Naroo said. Fit chic: Gym clothes become fashionable Associated PressWorkout clothes, long relegated to the far end of the closet, are fast becoming a basic wardrobe staple such as these sweat socks and shorts by Reebok. Everything from neon bras to CrossFit knee socks are becoming hip to wear outside the gym. Spending on activewear is outpacing general spending on clothing: the figure jumped 7percent between 2013 and 2012 to $31.61billion, while total clothing spending rose just 2percent to $200.78billion.A10TUESDAY, NOVEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEBUSINESS 000GONK www.bushhomeservices.com 352-621-7700 HOME SERVICES Illuminate the holidays with beautiful holiday lighting from Bush Home Services.

A fight to legalize half-gallon growlers is now leading to a look at Floridas craft beer industry as a whole.

J.C. Penney CEO invests $1M in company stockPLANO, Texas J.C. Penney CEO Mike Ullman seems confident the slumping retailer will bounce back during the holiday shopping season. Ullman showed his faith by buying 112,000 shares at $8.95 apiece at the end of last week. The $1 million investment disclosed Monday comes as Ullman tries to snap Penney out of a funk that has seen the Plano, Texas, company lose more than $2.4 billion since late 2011. The financial misery prompted Penny to fire Ron Johnson in April and bring back Ullman for a second stint as its CEO. Since his return, Ullman has been restoring more of the sales promotions that Johnson, a former executive at Target Inc. and Apple Inc., had eliminated. The strategy has yielded some modest progress so far. In October, Penney reported that its monthly sales at its stores open for at least year a key measure of a retailers health had risen by 0.9 percent, the first year-over-year increase since December 2011. That still wasnt enough to spare J.C. Penney Co. from a loss of $489 million in its most recent quarter ending Nov. 2. Penneys woes have caused the companys stock to plunge by 53 percent so far this year. The shares closed with a gain of almost 4 percent to $9.19 Monday, up from a 52-week low of $6.24 reached last month. Things are so bad that the retailer is being booted from the S&P 500 index after the stock market closes Friday.GE eyes fix for engine icing on 787s, 747-8sGeneral Electric said on Monday that it is close to a solution for engines that are losing power for a few seconds after ingesting ice chunks as big as a half-gallon. The problem came to light over the weekend after Japan Airlines said it will stop using its new Boeing Co. 787s on some routes. The problem has surfaced on about 400 GE engines used on some 787s and all Boeing 747-8s. GE said it knows of six incidents since April where those engines lost thrust because of icing. The problem is that in some weather conditions, the engines take in ice crystals which then thaw and refreeze. Those ice chunks can grow to two to four pounds and eventually come loose and get sucked into the engines core. GE said the engines lost power for around five seconds each time. If you were in the plane you wouldnt even notice it, GE spokesman Rick Kennedy said. The planes owners noticed. The ice chunks damaged at least one engine on a 747-8 freighter, Kennedy said, but all quickly regained power and the planes were able to land at their planned airport. Boeing has told airlines not to fly the planes within 50 nautical miles of the kinds of storms that can lead to the ice chunks. On Monday, the Federal Aviation Administration said it will issue a directive later this week to make sure pilots avoid the conditions as well.Southwest boosting fee for pets that flyDALLAS Itll soon cost more to bring your pet with you when you fly on Southwest Airlines. The airline is citing higher costs in raising its pet fee to $95 per flight from $75 beginning with flights on Jan. 15. Southwest Airlines Co. lets passengers bring a vaccinated dog or cat that fits in a carrier that goes under an airline seat. Pets are taken on a first-come basis, up to six per flight. Southwest, which began carrying pets in 2009, charges less for the service than many other U.S. carriers. United, Delta, American and US Airways all charge $125 each way, while JetBlue and Alaska charge $100.FDA overturns safety limits on diabetes drugWASHINGTON The Food and Drug Administration is lifting severe safety restrictions on the former blockbuster diabetes pill Avandia, citing recent data suggesting that the much-debated medication does not increase the risk of heart attack. The repeal means patients will no longer have to enroll in a special registry to be eligible to receive the drug. Additionally, the drug will be available at most pharmacies, whereas it was previously limited to certain registered pharmacies. Those safety restrictions and others were put in place in 2010, severely curbing U.S. prescriptions for the GlaxoSmithKline drug. Mondays ruling is a belated victory for the British drugmaker, which has spent more than a half-decade defending the safety of Avandia, once the best-selling diabetes drug in the world. Sales began plummeting in 2007 after researchers first raised questions about possible links to heart attacks.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, NOVEMBER26, 2013 A11 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,520 1,600 1,680 1,760 1,840 MN JJASO 1,760 1,800 1,840 S&P 500Close: 1,802.48 Change: -2.28 (-0.1%) 10 DAYS 14,400 14,800 15,200 15,600 16,000 16,400 MN JJASO 15,640 15,880 16,120 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,072.54 Change: 7.77 (flat) 10 DAYSAdvanced1363 Declined1700 New Highs249 New Lows62 Vol. (in mil.)2,937 Pvs. Volume2,985 1,734 1,672 1332 1236 284 35 NYSE NASD DOW 16109.6316055.4616072.54+7.77+0.05%+22.65% DOW Trans.7231.007199.107217.86+18.49+0.26%+36.01% DOW Util.496.85493.83493.88-1.43-0.29%+9.00% NYSE Comp.10212.8810166.3510176.19-29.53-0.29%+20.52% NASDAQ4007.093987.163994.57+2.92+0.07%+32.29% S&P5001808.101800.581802.48-2.28-0.13%+26.38% S&P4001310.991303.591305.78-3.03-0.23%+27.96% Wilshire 500019188.9819105.9519126.02-25.30-0.13%+27.55% Russell 20001128.521123.101124.72-0.20-0.02%+32.42% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Interestrates 000GPQ9 Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market paused Monday, ending on a mixed note, after a string of records in recent weeks. Investors had little company-specific news to digest and trading was light ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday later this week. Still, the market was hit with broader geopolitical news. The U.S. and other world powers reached a deal Sunday to limit Irans nuclear program, an event that dragged down oil prices and energy stocks. The slow day represented a lull in the markets strong run-up. Stocks have soared this year as a combination of solid corporate earnings, a strengthening economy and easy-money policies from the Federal Reserve have drawn investors to stocks. Stocks have also gained because they offer an attractive alternative to bonds, where interest rates remain close to alltime lows. The Dow Jones industrial average rose eight points, or 0.1 percent, to 16,072.54. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 2 points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,802.48. On Friday, the index closed above 1,800 for the first time Despite light trade, Monday did feature another market milestone. The Nasdaq rose as high as 4,007.09, a level it hasnt seen since Sept. 7, 2000, during the dotcom bubble. The index ended up 2.92 points, or 0.1 percent, at 3,994.57. The biggest drags on the S&P 500 were energy stocks. Sundays deal with Iran was the first significant progress in years to curtail that countrys nuclear ambitions. It could reduce the risk of conflict, improve trade and boost global oil supplies by making it easier for Iran to sell its crude onto the global market. That could increase global supply and push oil prices lower in the long-term. Oil fell 75 cents, or 0.8 percent, to $94.09. Energy companies Halliburton, Transocean and Schlumberger all fell 2 percent or more. Even with Mondays decline, S&P 500 has risen seven straight weeks and is up 26 percent in 2013, its best performance in 15 years. However, an increasing number of investors believe that stocks have run their course for 2013 and stocks are due for a pullback soon. I would like to see this market take a breather, said Jim Lauder, a fund manager for Wells Fargo Advantage Dow Jones Target Date Funds. While the Nasdaq is flirting with territory it hasnt seen in 13 years, the index is still down roughly 25 percent from its all-time high of 5,048.62 that it set on March 10, 2000. The index, although still technology heavy, is dominated by highly profitable companies like Apple, Google and Amazon. Trading was light Monday and is expected to remain limited all week. Stock and bond markets are closed Thursday in observance of the Thanksgiving. On Friday, the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq will close early. Approximately 2.98 billion shares traded hands Monday on the New York Stock Exchange, below the 3.35 billion that is typically traded on an average day.

OPINION Page A12TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2013 Good or bad?Is the decision to lease the hospital to Health Care of America (HCA) rather than sell it good or bad? If it is sold the board, foundation and commission would be out of the administration picture and HCA would own the hospital. This would be good! Sell the hospital there would not be any more lawsuits and the lawyers would be out of the picture. The $90 million would be distributed and the financial advisors could be selected, the money invested and the income from the investments spent as they were dedicated. This would be good and the HCA would run the hospital as they see fit and pay taxes accordingly. This would be very good for all of us. One thing I have not heard is how Inverness fits into the picture. All the talk is about the board, foundation and the county commissioners. What about Inverness? This is where the hospital is physically located. Do they have nothing to say in this decision? If the hospital were to be sold rather that leased would they not be able to collect some of the tax money that the HCA would pay? Why are they not included in the talks and the decision making process? It seems that the lease option would determine how the $90 million would be allocated, who would control it and what they would do with it. Would they spend it or invest it? The same board and foundation would be involved, right? Could we expect anything different than what we have right now? I dont think so! Now lets throw into the mix the county commission. They want into the decision-making process, more demands and more lawyers. Do we really want or need this? I visualize more demands, more arguments and more lawsuits. I dont think this is good for anyone, especially us. Please, change your minds and sell the hospital to HCA and be done with it. We do not need a threeor four-way decisionmaking process looking after the money. This would be nothing more than a catastrophe waiting to happen. What I really want is the board, foundation and the commission out of the picture. Why give them another chance to screw it up again and have the lawyers getting rich at our expense? Enough is enough. Kiss it goodbye and lets get on with business.Alfred E. Mason Crystal River Patricia Ann Millett spent 15 years as a Justice Department lawyer, seven of them under the second President Bush. She argued 32 cases before the Supreme Court, another 36 before appellate courts, and in 2004 she was given the departments Distinguished Service Award by a Republican attorney general. After President Obama nominated her for a seat on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this year, prominent conservative lawyers like Kenneth Starr endorsed her candidacy. At her Senate hearing, Ted Cruz praised her very fine professional credentials. But last month, Cruz and other Senate Republicans staged a filibuster that blocked her nomination. This is an outrage. Yes, politics have always infected judicial selections, and yes, Democrats have harassed plenty of Republican nominees over the years. But the rejection of Millett, and three other Obama nominees for the D.C. Circuit, goes far beyond the legitimate exercise of minority rights. Elections have consequences. And for all presidents, one of their most lasting legacies is their appointments to the federal courts. Obama won a second term last year, clearly and decisively. Yet in this critical area, Republicans are trying to deny the public will, to overturn the results of that election. Thats un-American and unprecedented. The D.C. Circuit is often called the second-most powerful court in the country. It adjudicates many consequential disputes between government and business, and four of the nine justices now serving on the Supreme Court came from its ranks. The real reason for the Republican rejection of Millett and the others is obvious. Right now the eight sitting members of the D.C. Circuit are evenly divided: four named by Republicans, four by Democrats. Three seats are open, and any additional judge would disturb the partisan balance. (Since five of the six senior judges, who still hear cases, were appointed by Republicans, conservatives actually have a working majority.) Republicans, of course, deny crass political motives. They are blocking Obamas nominees, they say, because the court is underworked and doesnt need more judges. Sen. Charles Grassley even accuses Obama of courtpacking, as if filling vacant seats is somehow illegitimate. This is simply a lie. It ranks with the GOP argument that they favor voter ID laws to prevent voter fraud. Thats a lie, too. In both cases, their motives are pure power politics and everyone knows it. If anyone is guilty of court-packing, its the Republicans. Or courtunpacking, to be precise, since theyre reducing the number of Democratic judges to obtain favorable rulings. Again, lets be clear. Democrats are not blameless. They have certainly helped inflame the judicial wars. But there is a difference. For one thing, Republicans are far more tenacious than the Democrats in blocking judicial nominees. Democrats have held the White House for 13 of the last 25 years and yet 15 of the last 19 judges approved for the D.C. Circuit were nominated by Republicans a huge imbalance. In addition, many of the Democratic targets were ideological warriors, lacking in judicial temperament or credentials. But Millett is completely qualified; even Cruz says so. So are the other rejected nominees. Robert Wilkins was approved unanimously by the Senate just three years ago for a district court post. Theres another point: Three of the four failed nominees are women, and one is an AfricanAmerican male. Republicans, who already suffer with female and minority voters, are taking a big risk by blocking them. Democrats are steaming, and rightly so. Some are talking about invoking the nuclear option: changing the Senate rules to ban filibusters on nominations. That would be a mistake. It would engulf the Congress in total partisan warfare. Congress favorable rating is down to single digits even Bashar Assad has better numbers but they could go even lower. And thats the last thing either party, or the country, needs right now. When a similar crisis gripped the Senate in 2005 fomented by Democratic filibusters against five of President Bushs judicial nominees a Gang of 14, seven pragmatists from each party, stepped in and brokered a deal. Three nominees were approved, two were shelved, and the 14 senators promised to avoid future filibusters in all but extraordinary circumstances. Thats a good standard thats obviously being trashed in the current Senate. And it wont be easy to revive. The center of the Senate continues to dwindle, and only five of those 14 dealmakers are left in office. A new gang needs to step forward and find a workable compromise. They need to save the Senate from itself. Again.Steve and Cokie Roberts can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Whether hell remember what he heard now that hes returned to Tallahassee well, we can hope. During his Nov. 15 visit, Gov. Rick Scott met with roughly 50 business leaders and government officials, saying little but hearing a lot: about the countys need for infrastructure, about the importance of natural resources to the area and about the need to protect those resources. Rather than meet with groups of stakeholders individually, Scott brought them together an approach we hope means they might also have heard each other. With the governor facing an election in 2014, theres no overlooking the political motives of the visit; but while here, Gov. Scott played businessman, not politician, keeping his ears open and sparing his audience any empty promises or boastful demagoguery. And while that meant he had few answers for those with questions, his one recurring answer was encouraging: Call me; Ill listen. Given that it was Scotts first official trip to the county in the more than 1,000 days since hes taken office, were not hanging our hopes on any special attention. Nevertheless, its nice to see Citrus make it onto the governors radar, and we hope its not the last time he lends an ear. THE ISSUE:Gov.

This is where the government should step in and pay all costs for his medical treatment. This kind of catastrophic illness should be underwritten by a national health plan that I am sure all citizens would cheerfully accept. ...Unfair treatmentIs there any attorney in Citrus County that can fight for mens rights? I am so tired of seeing men being ripped over the coals, paying exorbitant amounts of money for childcare, support payments and have to be under restrictions from their own children. Theyve been taken to the cleaners. ... Its a sad, sad thing going on for these men, and Im a woman saying this.Krieger has it rightI just read the letter in the paper (Nov. 17) from Roger Krieger and I wholly go along with everything he says. He is a former city manager and he says that it is fitting for a commissioner to ask questions and that is what we elect them to do. Every elected board member is representing the citizens and they have an obligation to each and every citizen. Meek on targetI loved what Commissioner Joe Meek had to say in Sundays Chronicle (Nov. 17). He gave so much good information. I had no idea how much good has been accomplished in our local government. I feel his energy by his wonderful, positive report. Nothing like the issues Scott Adams brings about in making others feel theyre going to hell in a hand basket. Way to go, Commissioner Meek.Park is just fineSundays (Nov. 17) editorial board tackled the question about Three Sisters as a state park. You go on to say all these groups banded together to buy it from developers so it wouldnt be developed. And then you go on talking about, well, it cant be open until its developed. I dont like this word developed. I went there once. It was an open house thing. It looked fine to me. You dont need paved roads because theyre flat. Theres no rocks in the roads. Leave it the way it is. Maybe Im being nave. Maybe way more people would go there than I would think. Thanks for helpFor the several bikers who participated in the toy collection: Wed like to thank the Hernando County Sheriff and FHP They offered us a safe ride. Happy holidays. That was the toy drive.Pave the streetsThis is Nov. 18 and I would just like to ask the county commissioners why are they jerry-rigging all the roads lately with just little patches here and patches there? And Ive had holes on my street in Beverly Hills and they dont care about them. They just do what they want to do. And here we are as taxpayers, paying, but they dont want to fill in the holes or they dont want to repave the streets like they really need to be done. Long Island SantaI live in Citrus Springs and I notice today on Nov. 18 there are no signs posting the Citrus Springs Christmas parade. Coming from Long Island, they used to always put Santa Claus on the fire truck and at night they would drive around the development. If theres going to be no parade this year because of lack of participation in the past years, how come they do not drive around the county or in the development of Citrus Springs with Santa Claus on it so the children can come out at night? Somebody please tell me why they do it in Long Island but not here. THE CHRONICLEinvites you to call Sound Off with your opinions about local or statewide subjects.

Flood insurance bill could be delayedThere has been quite a bit of concern by others and myself that there will be flood insurance rate hikes because of the National Flood Insurance Program/ Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act. I am concerned because I own property close to Kings Bay. I contacted the office of the Citrus County Building Director, Mr. Carl Jones, who explained Citrus County has a rating with the Federal Emergency Management Agency Community Rating System that allows an automatic insurance discount of 20 percent for all unincorporated areas of Citrus County, and that the Building Department is striving for a rating for a 25 percent discount. At the Lecanto government office, Jones arranged for me to be shown an aerial map of my property and I was told that my property would not be affected at all by the proposed rate hikes that it hypothetically would affect only properties very close to the water. Jones also explained that according to published reports some members of Congress are trying to delay the new legislation to fix the unintended consequences. Jones and his staff were a great help and so like a good neighbor just thought I would share the good news on flood insurance: Not to worry!Renee Christopher-McPheeters Crystal RiverFashion show raises $7,678The Trendy Runway Fashion Show held on Oct. 12 at the Citrus Hills Golf & Country Club was a huge success.

Mary Lee Johnson, Lois Thomas co-chairsLease not best course of actionThe full page ad in the Chronicleon Nov. 10, by the Citrus County Hospital Board of Trustees, raises a question as to whether or not the proposed lease for the Citrus Memorial Hospital is the right prescription. I suggest its more of a prescription for a bad drug. Its not often that the citizens of a county can have an opportunity to comment on a proposed transaction, and it seems quite clear to me that the sale of the Citrus Memorial Hospital property should be a true sale and not a perpetuation of the lease-style transaction. I would like to think the buyer would be opposed to a lease style transaction given the past political problems and litigation. I can only see continuing litigation between the hospital as Tenant and the Owner. I am particularity offended by the quote from the ad that states that the lease can not be challenged in court. Are you kidding me? The lease will be another door to continue disputes and arguments that will not provide any greater or improvements to healthcare in Citrus County and can only financially benefit the respective law firms. I suggest that all who agree, contact State Sen. Charles Dean and Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, and request the legislation that created the Citrus County Hospital Board and imposed the Hospital Tax be repealed.Carl A.

Associated PressBEIRUT Within 24 hours of an interim deal aimed at reining in Irans nuclear program, world powers raised hopes Monday for the first face-to-face talks to end the Syrian civil war as the United Nations called the warring parties to the table. But huge gaps remain. The opposition remains vague on whether it will even attend the Geneva conference called for Jan. 22, and both sides hold fundamentally different visions on the very basics, particularly the future role of President Bashar Assad. Nevertheless, Mondays announcement of a date for the talks after months of delay produced palpable hope that the precedent of successful nuclear negotiations with Iran might open new diplomatic channels that could help broker an end to the nearly 3-year-old civil war in Syria that has killed more than 100,000 people. The nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers was announced in Geneva on Sunday. Success in negotiations on a final accord could pave the way for normalization of ties between Iran and the West, reshaping the Mideast political map. As Assads staunchest ally, Iran has given him significant financial support and is believed to have sent military advisers, trained progovernment militiamen and directed one of its proxies, Lebanons Shiite Muslim Hezbollah, to fight alongside Assads troops. U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky played down the possibility that the negotiations with Iran played a direct role in the movement on Syria, which followed a meeting in Geneva of senior diplomats from the U.S., Russia and the U.N. The two tracks are very separate, both tracks have been going on in different formats, in different locations, he told reporters. So I would simply say that it was a good weekend for diplomacy. Still, a senior member in the main, Western-backed Syrian opposition coalition expressed hope the nuclear deal would transform Iran into a positive regional player, relinquishing its support for Assad. We hope the Iranian nuclear deal will provide impetus for a Syria deal, Abdelbaset Sieda of the Syrian National Coalition told The Associated Press. The Iranian government must cut relations with the regime and leave the choice to the Syrian people. A break between Iran and Assad is unlikely in the short term given the foothold the alliance gives Tehran in the Arab world. Still, a thaw between Iran and the U.S. which backs the opposition coalition could prompt Tehran to encourage Assad to make concessions, at least enough to keep talks going. Derailed Associated PressAmtrak passengers leave a derailed Amtrak train Monday to be loaded onto buses in Spartanburg County, S.C. More than 200 passengers were stuck on the New York-bound Amtrak Crescent that left the tracks early Monday morning. No one was seriously injured. Contractor charged with murder in collapsePHILADELPHIA The contractor who oversaw a botched building demolition that killed six people in a Salvation Army thrift store in Philadelphia is being charged with murder, manslaughter and reckless endangerment. Officials said Monday that Griffin Campbell is also charged with risking a catastrophe and criminal conspiracy in addition to the six counts of third-degree murder, six counts of involuntary manslaughter and 13 counts of endangerment. In the collapse, an unsupported wall crashed down onto the neighboring thrift store, trapping and killing shoppers inside. The charges are the first since excavator operator Sean Benschop was charged this summer on six counts of involuntary manslaughter for allegedly operating heavy equipment while high on marijuana and painkillers.Big decision on Detroit bankruptcy coming Dec. 3DETROIT A judge said Monday that hell announce next week whether Detroit is eligible to overhaul itself in bankruptcy court, the most important decision since the largest public filing in U.S. history last summer. Judge Steven Rhodes said hell announce a decision on Dec. 3 and issue a written opinion later. By disclosing the date, Rhodes eased some of the publics anxiety about the future of the case. He presided over a nineday trial that ended Nov. 8. Unions and pensions funds claim Detroit isnt eligible for bankruptcy because it failed to hold good-faith negotiations before the filing in July. The city, however, insists it did enough during the preceding four weeks. A decision in favor of eligibility would mean the case would turn to how Detroit can fix $18 billion in debt.

New Haven authorities said they have not found a gunman on Yales campus and are leaning toward a call warning of an armed man heading to shoot up the school being a hoax. New Haven Police Chief Dean Esserman said at a news conference Monday afternoon that New Haven and the Yale campus are both safe. New Haven police Officer David Hartman said an anonymous caller from a pay phone nearby told them his roommate had a gun and was heading to the campus.

Argument made to reinstate Knox guilty verdictFLORENCE, Italy The states prosecutor is arguing his case that an Italian appeals court should reinstate the guilty verdict against U.S. exchange student Amanda Knox for the grisly 2007 murder of her roommate. Prosecutor Alessandro Crini said Monday that Italys highest court had razed to the ground the Perugia appellate courts 2011 decision to throw out the guilty verdicts, freeing Knox and codefendant Raffaele Sollecito. Knox and Sollecito were convicted in 2009 of killing Knoxs 21-year-old British roommate, Meredith Kercher, and sentenced to 26 years and 25 years in jail, respectively. They were freed on appeal in 2011. Knox, who spent four years in jail, did not return to Italy for the third trial. Sollecito was in court again Monday.Latvian store search ends with death toll at 54RIGA, Latvia Latvias rescue service said it has finished searching the site of a collapsed supermarket in which 54 people died, including three firefighters, and at least 40 were injured. The four-day operation was interrupted on Saturday when a large portion of the roof caved in, but no one was injured. Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis on Monday called the supermarket collapse a serious crime and said it is not a case where there can be no guilty party. Latvian officials said 40 people are participating in the investigation, which will likely take several weeks. Possible explanations for the disaster include a flawed design, substandard construction materials and corruption.Thai leader invokes security law amid protestsBANGKOK Thailands prime minister invoked an emergency law on Monday after demonstrators seeking to remove her from office occupied parts of the finance and foreign ministries. Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra announced that the Internal Security Act would cover all of Bangkok and large parts of surrounding areas. Three especially sensitive districts of the capital have been under the law since August, when there were early signs of political unrest. The law authorizes officials to seal off roads, take action against security threats, impose curfews and ban the use of electronic devices in designated areas. Peaceful rallies are allowed under the law. Protesters swarmed into the two government ministries earlier Monday, overrunning several buildings and cutting electricity in an escalating campaign to topple Yinglucks government. World BRIEFS From wire reports Report on Newtown school rampage released Associated PressHARTFORD, Conn. Why Adam Lanza went on his murderous shooting rampage at a Newtown elementary school is a mystery and may never be known, prosecutors said in a report Monday as they closed their yearlong investigation. Lanza, 20, was obsessed with mass murders and the 1999 Columbine High School shooting in particular, but wasnt aggressive or threatening before the attack, according to the summary by the lead investigator, States Attorney Stephen Sedensky III. The report describes a gunman who had significant mental health issues but had sure knowledge of what he was planning: He had materials on mass murder, he smashed his computer hard drive, and he used earplugs during the shooting. Lanza killed 20 first-graders and six educators with a semi-automatic rifle inside Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14. He also shot his mother to death inside their home before driving to the school, and committed suicide with a handgun as police arrived. The obvious question that remains is: Why did the shooter murder 27 people, including 20 children? Unfortunately, that question may never be answered conclusively, the report said. Lanza was under no extreme emotional disturbance for which there was a reasonable explanation or excuse. Sedensky also said there was no clear indication why Lanza chose Sandy Hook Elementary other than that it was close to his home. The report said noted that in 2005, he was diagnosed with Aspergers disorder and lacked empathy for others. But what contribution this made to the shootings, if any, is unknown. Aspergers is an autism-like disorder that is not associated with violence. Lanza might have hinted at his intentions online in the days before the massacre, the report indicated. Two days before the shooting, an anonymous user posted comments online about planning to commit suicide Dec. 14 and saying it would make national news. The poster claimed to live in Connecticut. But Sedensky said the hard drive taken from Lanzas home was so damaged that data will probably never be extracted from it. A timeline released with the report indicates that nearly six minutes passed between the arrival of the first Newtown police office and the time officers entered the school. The report said officers were operating under the belief there may have been more than one shooter. Whether the delay made any difference was unclear. The report said Lanza killed himself about a minute after the first officer arrived. Sedneskys report is a summary of a much larger Connecticut state police evidence file that is expected to be released at a later date. Obama pushes back against critics Associated PressWASHINGTON Pushing back hard, President Barack Obama forcefully defended the temporary agreement to freeze Irans disputed nuclear program on Monday, declaring that the United States cannot close the door on diplomacy. The presidents remarks followed skepticism of the historic accord expressed by some U.S. allies abroad as well as by members of Congress at home, including fellow Democrats. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, one of the fiercest opponents of the six-month deal, called it a historic mistake and announced he would be dispatching a top envoy to Washington to try to toughen the final agreement negotiators will soon begin hammering out. Obama, without naming names, swiped at those who have questioned the wisdom of engaging with Iran. Tough talk and bluster may be the easy thing to do politically, but its not the right thing to do for our security, he said during an event in San Francisco. The weekend agreement between Iran and six world powers the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany is to temporarily halt parts of Tehrans disputed nuclear program and allow for more intrusive international monitoring of Irans facilities. In exchange, Iran gains some modest relief from stiff economic sanctions and a pledge from Obama that no new penalties will be levied during the six months. The groundwork for the accord was laid during four clandestine meetings between U.S. and Iranian officials throughout the summer and fall. An earlier meeting took place in March, before Iranians elected President Hassan Rouhani, a cleric who has taken more moderate public stances than his predecessor. Details of the secret talks were confirmed to The Associated Press by three senior administration officials. The U.S. and its allies contend Iran is seeking to produce a nuclear bomb of particular concern to Israel, which fears an attack while Tehran insists it is merely pursuing a peaceful nuclear program for energy and medical purposes. The temporary accord is historic in its own right, marking the most substantial agreement between Iran and the West in more than three decades. The consequences of a permanent deal could be far more significant, lowering the prospects of a nuclear arms race in the volatile Middle East and perhaps opening the door to wider relations between the U.S. and Iran, which broke off diplomatic ties following the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Associated PressHeisman Trophy voters were emailed a ballot on Monday. Its not due back for two weeks. Good thing, because its going to take some time to sort this out. A Heisman race that not long ago seemed well-defined has been muddled in so many ways. Not the least of which is a sexual assault investigation involving Jameis Winston, the Florida State star who would otherwise be the clear front-runner after the Heisman stock of several contenders crashed last weekend. Last week was a seismic one, and shook up the landscape, Heisman voter Charles Davis of Fox Sports said. Even with potential criminal charges hanging over Winston, online sports book Bovada has him as the favorite to win the award at 1-2 odds, meaning if you bet $200 on him to win the Heisman youd win only $100. Though the odds that he wins it are not as good as they were last week. Many Heisman voters say they are taking a waitand-see approach on Winstons legal issues. The state attorney in Tallahassee has said a decision on whether to charge Winston with anything is unlikely to be reached this week, but maybe next. It cant be forgotten that Winstons constitutional rights supersede whatever privileges afforded him as an exceptional college football quarterback, said Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press. Heisman voters must let the investigation play itself out for as long as possible before rendering judgment. Winston and No. 2 Florida State play Florida on Saturday, and then the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game on Dec. 7. He leads the nation in passer efficiency rating (194.5) and has thrown for 3,163 yards and 32 touchdowns. Obviously, strictly as a player, hes a leading contender, said Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch. But I dont want to prejudge his legal situation one way or the other. The presumption of innocence that he has legally ought to apply in terms of his Heisman chances. I just hope theres a resolution before I have to vote. Votes from the 928member Heisman electorate are due by Dec. 9 at 5 p.m. The winner is announced Dec. 14. Meanwhile, the stage is set for AJ McCarron to make a late push. The Alabama quarterback could have two more chances to display his talents, starting Saturday at Auburn. Win that and its on to the Southeastern Conference title game for the Crimson Tide. Braxton Miller, No. 3 Ohio States dual-threat quarterback, is in a similar situation. He gets Michigan on Saturday, and then No. 11 Michigan State the week after for the Big Ten title. While voters have cooled on Texas A&Ms Johnny Manziel, who won the Heisman last year, Oregons Marcus Mariota and Baylors Bryce Petty all of whom had belowaverage performances in losing efforts last Saturday theyre warming up to Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch, Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr and Boston College running back Andre Williams. I was probably leaning toward Johnny Manziel until this past weekend, Basketball/B2 NHL/B2 Scoreboard/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 Lottery, TV/B3 Football/ B4 No. 17 Central Florida set to host rival USF in the War on I-4 / B4 SPORTSSection BTUESDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE No. 15 Florida handles Jacksonville 86-60 Associated PressJACKSONVILLE Casey Prather scored 27 points, Michael Frazier II added 17 and No. 15 Florida handled Jacksonville 86-60 Monday night. The Gators (5-1) won their fourth consecutive game following a loss at 10th-ranked Wisconsin two weeks ago. The latest victory was a final tuneup before the teams toughest stretch of the season games against Florida State, Connecticut, Kansas and Memphis. It should help that point guard Scottie Wilbekin has returned to the rotation. Coach Billy Donovan even started the senior, who was suspended the first five games of the season and an exhibition for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Wilbekin finished with 12 points, seven assists, five rebounds and just two turnovers. Dorian Finney-Smith added 14 points and 11 rebounds for the visitors. Patric Young chipped in 13 points. Jarvis Haywood led the Dolphins (2-4) with 16 points. Vince Martin added 11 points and 10 boards. Wilbekin was instrumental in getting Floridas offense in rhythm early. The Gators led 16-5 after Fraziers second 3-pointer and made it 28-10 on Jacob Kurtzs layup. Wilbekins driving layup with 6:05 remaining in the half was his first bucket of the season. His runner in the lane just before the buzzer put Florida ahead 48-29 at the break. The Gators started the second half much like they did the first, using a 10-4 spurt to turn a double-digit lead into a lopsided affair. Wilbekin made his first two buckets of the second half, hitting a runner and a 3-pointer. Florida coasted from there. The Gators shot 59.6 percent from the floor and were 8-of-13 from 3-point range. They missed 12 free throws and gave up 16 offensive rebounds, but made up for those miscues with 19 assists, seven steals and four blocked shots. Prather made 11 of 13 shots. Frazier was 5-of-6 shooting, all from behind the arc. About the only thing to really go wrong for coach Billy Donovans team was another injury. Guard DeVon Walker hurt his right foot early in the game and did not return. Associated PressHeisman Trophy voters have two weeks to decide who will be this years winner. TOP LEFT: Florida State freshman quarterback Jameis Winston is the favorite to win the award, but is facing possible criminal charges. TOP RIGHT: Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron has the Crimson Tide undefeated and in line for a shot at a third national title in a row. BOTTOM LEFT: Returning winner Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M has three losses this season, but is still one of the most electrifying players in the game.

Muschamp, who will return in 2014, said winning the Southeastern Conferences Eastern Division and getting to Atlanta is absolutely possible next season. It sounded a little ambitious for a team that has dropped six consecutive games the programs longest losing streak since 1979 and lost 26-20 to lower-division Georgia Southern on Saturday. But Muschamp insisted the Gators (4-7), who finish the season Saturday against No. 2 Florida State (11-0), can rebound quickly. I dont believe were that far off, he said Monday. Regardless of the results Saturday afternoon, which is all disappointing for everyone, starting with me, I just dont feel like were that far off. When asked about his job security, Muschamp said he absolutely will be around next season. Athletic director Jeremy Foley made that clear two weeks ago, saying he was a thousand percent convinced that Will Muschamp is the guy to lead this football program. School President Bernie Machen echoed those sentiments. Many outsiders hoped that would change following Saturdays loss to Georgia Southern a middleof-the-pack program from the Football Championship Subdivision but the Gators are moving forward with Muschamp.

The team said that Rose had successful surgery Monday morning in Chicago to repair a torn medial meniscus in his right knee. He was hurt Friday night at Portland. The 2011 NBA MVP missed all of last season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Chicagos 2012 playoff opener against Philadelphia. He has played in just 50 NBA games 49 in the regular season and that lone playoff game since the Bulls run to the Eastern Conference finals during his MVP season. The latest injury occurred in the third quarter against the Trail Blazers. It didnt appear there was any contact on the play. Rose was unable to return and was on crutches afterward. With Rose back, the Bulls were expected to challenge LeBron James and the Miami Heat for supremacy in the Eastern Conference and contend for their first championship since the Michael Jordan-Scottie Pippen era.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE games last year, and I dont think that happened by accident. We have a really good football staff. We have some good players on our football team. Were going to have a good football team moving forward. Muschamp likely will make staff changes, though. Offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis are probably gone. The Gators rank 111th in total offense and have been downright woeful on the line. Theres no changes that have been made at this time, Muschamp said. Im not ready to make any statement on that at this point. Were still playing out the season, and those guys are going to coach their butts off. Ill make that decision when I think its right. Injuries have been a contributing factor for Floridas struggles. Quarterback Jeff Driskel, running back Matt Jones, defensive tackle Dominique Easley and right tackle Chaz Green are among the 10 players sidelined with season-ending injuries. Several others have missed significant time. Backup quarterback Tyler Murphy (shoulder) is unlikely to play against FSU. So are left tackle D.J. Humphries (knee) and linebackers Mike Taylor (knee) and Alex Anzalone (shoulder). But many wonder how Florida even with backups can have the worst offense in the SEC and lose to Vanderbilt by 17 points and to Georgia Southern. I dont know why thats happened to us, receiver Solomon Patton said. Added safety Jaylen Watkins: We just have to focus on Florida and try to get back to where we used to be. Muschamp is 22-15 in Gainesville, including 13-11 in conference play. And Floridas three SEC wins this season came against Tennessee, Kentucky and Arkansas teams that are breaking in new coaches and have a combined 1-21 record in league play. But Muschamp believes his team is close to competing for a title. I think theres some key components for our football team that arent playing for us right now, he said. And were very thin in some areas. It is what it is. Im not making excuses. Thats just the facts, and its real. I think weve got a good staff and I think that weve got a really good football team ... heading into spring. And Im excited about that. said Hugh Kellenberger of The Clarion-Ledgerof Jackson, Miss. Earlier in the year I thought it was Marcus Mariotas to lose. So right now Im certainly looking for other candidates, and a guy like Alabamas AJ McCarron probably has a better candidacy now than he did just a couple weeks ago. McCarron is the second choice on Bovadas board at 2-1, making a huge move after being 13-2 last week. There doesnt seem to be a massive groundswell of support for the senior with two national championship rings. Its been more of a steadily growing appreciation for his consistent production. A cover story in Sports Illustrated last week didnt hurt him, either. And, of course, hes now facing more pushback from skeptics. I get it that Baylor, A&M and Oregon lost and many have moved up AJ McCarron, but its not a lifetime achievement award, said Robert Cessna of the Bryan-College Station (Texas) Eagle. I dont know if hes even the best player on the team. Winston, McCarron and Manziel were announced as the finalists for the Maxwell player of the year award on Monday. After McCarron on Bovadas board comes Williams, the first major college player to rush for 2,000 yards since 2008, and Miller at 15-1. Carr and Manziel are 20-1. Lynch comes in at 28-1. Petty and Mariota are off the board, which doesnt necessarily mean they cant get back on it. Williams, Miller, Carr and Lynch were off the board last week. Maybe this week Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd or Louisvilles Teddy Bridgewater can re-emerge, or Arizona running back KaDeem Carey and the Wildcats can follow their upset of No. 12 Oregon with another against No. 13 Arizona State. Saturday was a ballot-buster for me, no question, said Joshua Kendall of The Statein Columbia, S.C. Im back to square one unless there is something before square one, in which case I am there.

The Spartans (6-0) held the top spot for a second straight week by receiving 56 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media poll. Kansas drew eight first-place votes and remains second. Kentucky, the preseason No. 1, and Arizona moved up one spot each to third and fourth. Oklahoma State received the other No. 1 vote and jumped from seventh to fifth. Duke stayed at sixth. Ohio State, Syracuse, Louisville and Wisconsin rounded out the top 10.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced the charges Monday in Steubenville. The grand jury had investigated whether adults like coaches or school administrators knew of the rape allegation but failed to report it as required by state law. The Steubenville superintendent faces the most serious charges, including obstructing justice. A principal, a strength coach and a volunteer coach also are charged. Theyre accused of interfering with the investigation or failing to report possible abuse of a minor. A judge convicted two Steubenville football players in the August 2012 rape. The attorney generals office said the investigation also included possible crimes committed in connection with another alleged rape four months earlier.GM on Peralta: Cardinals not morale policeST. LOUIS The St. Louis Cardinals factored in Jhonny Peraltas drug suspension when they negotiated a four-year deal worth more than $50 million with the free agent shortstop. General manager John Mozeliak said Monday that Peralta had admitted wrongdoing and served his penalty, and that the Cardinals werent about to appoint themselves morale police. Mozeliak said the club was confident this was an isolated circumstance. The 31-year-old Peralta was suspended for 50 games last summer following Major League Baseballs investigation of the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic, which was accused of distributing banned performance-enhancing drugs. He underwent a physical on Sunday but did not attend the introductory news conference. St. Louis also explored a trade but wasnt willing to part with several prospects.From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS
No. 17 UCF prepares to host rival South Florida Associated PressORLANDO The 17thranked UCF Knights dont see their game against South Florida as a big rivalry game, they see it as a championship contest. We just look at it as another championship game, another conference game that weve got to win, senior wide receiver Jeffrey Godfrey said. Were just going out there like every week, practicing hard for a championship game and not worrying about the rivalry (or) anything else anybody wants to call it. The 17th-ranked Knights (9-1, 6-0) can clinch at least a share of the American Athletic Conference championship and move a step closer to a BCS bowl appearance with a victory over USF (2-8, 2-4). UCF is 0-4 in the series, which has been referred to as the War on I-4. The teams played from 2005-08, but have not met since, which may explain why the players dont see it the same way the two fan bases do. Knights coach George OLeary understands his players perspective. Youve got to understand, these kids were in junior high the last time we played, OLeary said Monday. If theres any still around, theyre ineligible. The Knights coach has always been in favor of playing USF, and is happy that the two will now be meeting regularly since they both play in the AAC. Ive always been pushing to play South Florida every year, OLeary said. I think it would help both schools from a growth standpoint. I think it would help both schools from a stadium attendance capacity standpoint. I think it would help both schools from a fan interest standpoint. There are so many more positives than negatives. I dont know any negatives. UCF offensive linemen Jordan and Justin McCray said they have not talked to their older brother, Cliff, who played in the 2007 game which USF won 64-12. We didnt get to make it to that game, but I remember (UCF) definitely didnt do well against them, Justin McCray said. I guess we can look at that and say we definitely need to play a lot better than that, but I think were a better team. We practice really hard and were going to go out there and do what we need to do. UCF has certainly been on a roll with six consecutive victories. The Knights can match the 2007 team for the longest winning streak in program history with a win on Friday night. The game, which will be the 400th since the UCF programs inception in 1979, will also give the Knights a chance to reach double-digit victories for the second consecutive season and the third time in the past four years. While the players may be downplaying the significance of the rivalry, there is one challenge they are acknowledging: OLeary has told them they have yet to play their best game of the season, where both sides of the ball and the special teams are really clicking. Hes mentioned it, not just this week, but pretty much every game this year, Jordan McCray said. We want to come together as a team to put together a great effort overall, not just in one phase of the game. Fridays game will also be part of a special week for the Knights, who will celebrate Thanksgiving dinner at the team hotel, then play the final home game for eight senior players the next day. Really, we just want to make sure were focused on the game itself and get the win, Jordan McRay said. Everything else will fall into place. As long as we get the win, and play hard and do the thing were supposed to do, it will be a good night.B4TUESDAY, NOVEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFOOTBALL NFL BRIEFSLate Sunday Patriots 34, Broncos 31, OTFOXBOROUGH, Mass. Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 31-yard field goal for New England after a misplayed punt return by Denver, lifting the Patriots to a 34-31 overtime victory over the Broncos on Sunday night. Denvers Tony Carter ran into Ryan Allens punt after it landed and Nate Ebner recovered for New England at the Broncos 13-yard line. After Tom Brady ran twice to line up the kick, Gostkowski connected for his 21st successful field goal attempt. Brady threw for three touchdowns to lead the Patriots (8-3) back from a 24-0 halftime deficit to a 31-24 lead as New England scored on its first five possessions of the second half. Then Peyton Manning threw an 11-yard scoring pass to Demaryius Thomas for the Broncos (9-2), tying it at 31.Dolphins RB Thomas to miss several gamesDAVIE Miami Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas is expected to miss several games because of a left ankle injury, leaving the team with little experience behind starter Lamar Miller. Marcus Thigpen and rookie Mike Gillislee will replace Thomas, offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said Monday. Thomas was hurt in Sundays loss to Carolina. Thigpen is a kick returner with three carries in his two NFL seasons. Gillislee, a fifth-round draft pick from Florida in April, hasnt been active yet. Thomas handled the Dolphins short-yardage situations and was averaging 3.6 yards per carry.Woman jumps from Oakland stadium deckOAKLAND, Calif. A woman who jumped from the third level of the Oakland Raiders stadium survived after a man tried to catch her and broke her fall, police said. The woman, who was not identified, was critically injured Sunday after plunging about 45 feet at O.co Coliseum. She jumped shortly after the Raiders 23-19 loss to the Tennessee Titans, as fans filed out of the stadium. The good Samaritan was seriously injured but was conscious and talking at the hospital, police said.Chiefs unsure on status of pass rushersKANSAS CITY, Mo. Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali had an MRI exam on his sprained left ankle that came back better than expected Monday, while fellow linebacker Justin Houston had an MRI exam on his left elbow postponed because of swelling. Coach Andy Reid wouldnt say whether his top two pass rushers, both of them Pro Bowl picks a year ago, would be available for Sundays game against the Denver Broncos. Hali rolled over his ankle in the first half of Sundays 41-38 loss to the San Diego Chargers. He was walking on crutches in the locker room after the game, but Reid said that he was feeling better on Monday. Its possible he could play vs Denver. Houston appears to be more doubtful after a subluxation of his elbow.From wire reports COLLEGE FOOTBALL BRIEFSKentucky suspends RB SandersLEXINGTON, Ky. Kentucky coach Mark Stoops has suspended leading rusher Raymond Sanders for Saturdays game against Tennessee for violating a team rule. Sanders, who has a team-best 464 yards on 107 carries with three touchdowns, sat out most of the first half of last weeks 59-17 loss at Georgia in what the coach said afterward was for disciplinary reasons. Stoops said he received more information Monday morning leading to the latest punishment, though he didnt say what rules the running back broke. The running backs participation in Saturdays senior day activities will be determined today.RB Williams dismissed from OklahomaNORMAN, Okla. Senior tailback Damien Williams is no longer with Oklahomas football team. Coach Bob Stoops announced Williams dismissal on Monday. Williams, from San Diego, had been suspended for Saturdays win at Kansas State and earlier served a one-game suspension against Tulsa. Williams started one game this season and was the 20th-ranked Sooners second-leading rusher, with 114 carries for 553 yards and seven touchdowns. He also had caught nine passes for 90 yards. Last season, Williams rushed for 946 yards and 11 touchdowns and caught 34 passes for 320 yards and another score while starting nine games for Oklahoma. Wide receiver Lacolton Bester, who also was suspended for the Kansas State game, will be available to play against No. 7 Oklahoma State on Dec. 7.SEC announces weekly honors BIRMINGHAM, Ala. LSU running back Terrence Magee and Vanderbilt linebacker Chase Garnham are the Southeastern Conference offensive and defensive players of the week. The SEC named Missouri defensive tackle Harold Brantley special teams player of the week on Monday. Magee rushed for a career-high 149 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries in a win over Texas A&M. Garnham led Vanderbilt with 10 tackles to tie a career-high. He had seven solo tackles and a tackle for loss. Brantley blocked a Mississippi field goal attempt and took a direct snap 26 yards for a first down on a fake punt.Illinois staff member charged for pointing gunURBANA, Ill. Authorities said University of Illinois football staff member and former player Matt Sinclair has been charged after allegedly pointing an unloaded handgun at a vehicle carrying other staff members. Champaign County States Attorney Julia Rietz said Sinclair was arraigned Monday on two felony counts of unlawful use of a weapon. He was arrested Saturday after Illinois game at Purdue. Rietz said someone called police to report a driver pointing a gun out of a truck on Interstate 74 in eastern Illinois. Police said Sinclair said he pointed the gun as a joke. Sinclair is Illinois assistant director of player personnel and relations. He played at Illinois from 2001-2004.From wire reports Associated PressCentral Florida quarterback Blake Bortles looks for a receiver Thursday in Orlando while pressured by Rutgers linebacker Kevin Snyder. Bortles and the 17th-ranked Knights look for their first-ever win against in-state rival South Florida on Friday. The War on I-4 Steady Glennon leading Bucs Rookie quarterback has led team to three straight wins Associated PressTAMPA Mike Glennon isnt posting the flashiest numbers, however the rookies solid play has been one of the keys to the resurgence of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs (3-8) have won three straight following an 0-8 start, with Glennon minimizing costly mistakes and building confidence by the victory. The third-round draft pick out of North Carolina State threw for 247 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions during Sundays 24-21 win over Detroit. Even more impressive: it was the fourth time in the past five games that he hasnt turned the ball over. Theres still some rookie things he says and does that make you remember, Oh yeah, this guys a rookie. But I think he has accelerated his progress by, from the day he got here, how hard hes prepared and worked, coach Greg Schiano said. Hes playing at a higher level than you would expect of a rookie, the coach added. The things that are hard for rookies (are) to let a bad play die and dont get greedy. Thats what Mike does the best job of. Glennon has thrown one interception since a loss to Philadelphia on Oct. 13. He hasnt lost a fumble since Tampa Bays opening possession of a loss at Atlanta the following week. In six games, hes thrown one interception. Hes now throwing the ball down the field, I think, with more confidence, because hes always been able to do it, just pulling the trigger, Schiano said. That is the development or the maturation of a quarterback. I think were all seeing it right in front of our eyes. I think this is a guy that certainly, as long as he continues on this trajectory, youd love to have as your quarterback for a long time. The Buccaneers visit the Carolina Panthers this Sunday. Since replacing an ineffective Josh Freeman, Glennon has completed nearly 63 percent of his passes for 13 touchdowns and four interceptions in eight starts. The coaching staff and teammates laud the 23-year-olds poise, decisionmaking in the pocket, and willingness to sacrifice personal statistics for the good of the team. Very rarely have we seen him, in anything, make a repeated mistake. Theres a lot to learn, theres always going to be lots of mistakes that are out there, its such a difficult and important position he plays. ... I think hes very mature, hes very focused, he works extremely hard and just has a very good football IQ, offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan said. I think also theres a steadiness about him. He doesnt let himself get too high or too low, hes very evenkeeled, Sullivan added. I think when someone has that perspective, particularly as a quarterback, theyre able to ... focus and make those right decisions. The re-emergence of a productive running game has made a difference, too. Glennon attempted 43, 43, 44 and 51 passes in his first four starts. With Tampa Bay posting three of its top four rushing totals over the past month, hes thrown 23, 21, 23 and 21 passes over the past four games. The Lions shut down the running game, limiting the Bucs to 22 yards on 24 carries. Nevertheless, with help from an opportunistic defense that had five takeaways and scored a touchdown, Glennon was able to thrive without a balanced attack. Schiano is not surprised by the rookies success. In addition to playing in a pro-style offense in college, he said Glennon has benefited from tutelage from Sullivan and quarterbacks coach John McNulty, as well as backup quarterback Dan Orlovsky, whos in his ninth NFL season. The coaches have been great but, being a player, Dans gone through it and he knows what its like to see through the quarterbacks eyes, and just about the preparation and everything that goes in, Glennon said. From the time I got here, he kind of took me under his wing and hes been a tremendous help, Glennon added of Orlovsky. I really cant say enough about him, because hes the first one in with me every day and is always just trying to help me out in whatever way possible.

ecently one of my patients requested me to write an article on chewing tobacco. Her friend quit smoking cigarettes but started chewing tobacco. He feels that chewing tobacco is much better than smoking. This is also known as smokeless tobacco. I grew up in India. Chewing tobacco in the part of India where I grew up is an extremely common problem, and I have seen too many complications of it. Chewing tobacco is the commonest cause of cancer in that part. Smokeless tobacco is available as chewing tobacco or snuff. Different processing techniques, particularly curing, can result in markedly different contents of toxins in smokeless products. About 3 percent of adults in the United States use smokeless products. There is no safe form of tobacco. At least 28 chemicals in smokeless tobacco have been found to cause cancer. Some people think that chewing tobacco is better than smoking cigarettes or cigars. That is not true. The route is different, but the nicotine addiction is the same. Nicotine in smokeless tobacco products absorbs from the mouth or nose along with other compounds in the tobacco. Cigarettes, pipes and cigars burn the tobacco, and the nicotine from the smoke gets into the body through the mouth, nose and lungs. Chewing tobacco has one other big disadvantage: Even after the tobacco is removed from the mouth, nicotine continues to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Also, the nicotine stays in the blood longer for users of smokeless tobacco than for smokers. Smokeless tobacco causes cancer of the mouth, esophageal cancer, and pancreatic cancer. Using smokeless tobacco may also cause heart disease, gum disease and oral lesions other than cancer; such as leukoplakia (precancerous white patches in the mouth). This may sound not so bad but can make it impossible to open the mouth due to scarring. Some people feel that chewing tobacco or smokeless tobacco is less harmful than smoking cigars or cigarettes. This is not true at all. One should not use one to quit the bad habit of another. In other words, if you quit smoking cigarettes but now chew tobacco, you have not helped your health at all. All forms of tobacco and nicotine can harm or kill children and pets if accidentally or otherwise ingested. In short, please do not use tobacco in any form. All forms of tobacco are harmful and must be condemned. Unfortunately, it is very addictive and if you are addicted to any form of tobacco, please do not substitute one form for another, thinking it may be less harmful. There are many other better and proven ways to quit tobacco.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is the volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society.

To find a donor center or a blood drive In the past, we have discussed several types of skin cancers, including basal cell cancer and melanoma. Squamous cell carcinoma is another type of skin cancer that is commonly seen, especially here in Florida with all the sun exposure that we have. This cancer, like the basal cell cancer, is named for the layer for which it arises. It starts in the flat squamous layers in the outermost layer of your skin called the epidermis, which is part of the protective layer that covers the soft tissue beneath including the fat layer, blood vessels, arteries, veins, nerves and muscles. We see squamous cell cancer in all areas of the body, but most common sites tend to develop in the head and neck area and include the rim of the ear, the scalp, the face, the lips, the mouth, and are directly related to damage by sunlight and other sources of ultraviolet radiation, including sun lamps and tanning booths. Squamous cell carcinoma often starts as a precancerous growth called actinic keratosis, which is a scaly growth accompanied by a patch of tiny blood vessels on the surface of the skin with the feel of sandpaper. More than half of squamous cell cancers arise from these actinic keratoses. They seem to develop from this scaly area of irritation into a small, firm lump, which can rapidly increase in size and break down in the center and form an open sore that we commonly call an ulcer. Squamous cell cancer can be confined to the outer layer of the skin for a long time, when rapidly identified and treated can be cured. However, if left for a long period of time, a number of squamous cell cancers can spread, or the term is called metastasize, to other parts of the body. It is of particular importance in the head and neck area because of the prominence of lymph nodes, which can hasten the spread. An example might be someone who has a squamous cell cancer on their chin or cheek area, which can spread to the lymph nodes or glands in the neck and require an extensive surgery including removal of these glands in the neck. The mechanism of spread is that the squamous cell cancer spreads from the superficial layer to the second layer of skin called the dermis and then it allows access to the blood vessels that can carry the cancer to other parts of the body, including the lymph nodes. In some extreme cases, squamous ceil cancer can spread to new skin sites or other organs such as the lungs, brain, or the liver, which is very difficult to treat and sometimes impossible to cure. Squamous cell cancer is treated by removal, which means the cancer should be cut out and removed in its entirety. Techniques such as freezing, burning, or scraping the lesion can be ineffective and cause the lesion to remain in place longer and put patients at risk for spread of the disease. Certain techniques are used by your surgeon to make sure that the growth is completely removed and includes the help of a pathologist at the time of the removal. The pathologist will examine the specimen on site and determine if there is any residual (roots) remaining that would cause the disease to spread to other areas. In some instances, this requires a great deal of tissue to be removed and results in a large defect that may need to be closed up with a skin graft. In some instances, radiation therapy is used as primary treatment or in conjunction with surgery. This is a particularly good option in hard to treat areas or with individuals who are not healthy enough to tolerate surgery. In some instances, also chemotherapy or the use of anti-cancer drugs taken by mouth or injected will be used to treat the-spread of the disease, especially if it has gone beyond the skin to other organs or lymph nodes. It is very important that people take an active role in maintaining their health and one of the ways is to do routine examinations of the skin and identify any suspect areas and bring it to the attention of your doctor.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

For decades, a cancer diagnosis was associated with almost certain death. Over the past few decades, tremendous strides have been achieved in the battle of cancer, and today, many patients will be cured of their disease or with proper treatment will live for a substantial amount of time. Despite these improvements, a cancer diagnosis still carries a tremendous psychologic burden that patients and their families must deal with. Even when a remission or cure has been obtained, the slightest ache or pain will initiate a cascade of thoughts dealing with the possibility of a recurrence of their cancer. Every cancer patient will deal with his or her disease in a unique fashion. Overall it is remarkable how well most cancer patients deal with their diagnosis despite the severe stress it places on them and their families. Most cancer patients are initially in a state of disbelief or denial regarding their diagnosis. This is followed by a state of dysphoria, generally a feeling of unpleasantness. During this phase of dysphoria, patients may notice anxiety, depression, loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping and easy irritability. Concentration can often be impaired and this interferes with short term memory which is often frustrating to these patients. After this, patients begin to adapt to their diagnosis and disease, focus on their therapy, and begin to resume the normal activities of their life. There certainly is no set time line for experiencing these stages of a cancer diagnosis but every patient will confront them in their own fashion and in their own time. If a patient has had difficulty coping with stressful issues in the past, one can certainly expect them to have difficulty dealing with the diagnosis of cancer. Often, this can be further complicated by family, financial, or insurance problems, and must be monitored very carefully. As a patient and their family move through the various stages of a cancer diagnosis and treatment, they will encounter crisis points which are more difficult to cope with. It is at this time that the support of friends and family is of utmost importance. About 20percent of cancer patients will become severely depressed and will require aggressive therapy. Surprisingly, the incidence of severe depression in cancer patients is really no greater than that found in patients suffering from other medical problems. The site of the cancer or the type of the cancer does not seem to be related to the incidence of depression in these patients, either. Physicians and family members must look for signs of depression and treat patients accordingly when this diagnosis is established. Psychotherapy, behavior therapy and group therapy will all help the patient focus on dealing with their diagnosis and problems. Group meetings or support groups can be extremely beneficial to some patients, while others are uncomfortable sharing their problems and thoughts with a large group of people. Finally, antidepressants are often very effective in managing these symptoms at doses lower than that seen with typical depression. Unfortunately, antidepressant therapy is very often underutilized in cancer patients. In summary, depression is a common finding in patients with a diagnosis of cancer. Physicians and family members must look for these symptoms and assist with obtaining help and treatment for these individuals when signs of depression are seen.Dr. C.

DR. ROBERTBROCKETT Special to the ChronicleNote: After reading last weeks column from Dr. Grillo, Dr. Brockett, a local oral surgeon that I refer to, asked if he could write todays column. He had just spent the weekend with Dr. Donald Cohen from the University of Florida on this very topic. I hope you enjoy reading. The information is important to know.Dr. Frank VasciminiLast week, Dr. Denis Grillo did an excellent article on the human papilloma virus as the causative agent of warts. As there are around 130 different types of human papilloma viruses, the ones that cause warts are somewhat benign. There is a dark side to this virus, however, in that there are high-risk HPV genotypes (specifically 16 and 18 with nine other contributors) that are at extremely high risk for development of cancer of the throat and tonsillar area. The skin in this area is so thin that the virus can perforate the skin and lodge itself within the skin. When the concentration of virus gets high enough, oral cancer may result. There is a possibility of spontaneous resolution of these HPV infestations, but the bad news is that they may lay dormant for many years and then become expressed with advancing age. This is a sexually transmitted disease. When one is exposed, 90percent will clear within two years. This means the virus is not detectible, but it doesnt mean its still not present in a latent stage. In the 1950s, the Kinsey report stated that among single males and females, oral sex was reported at 10percent and 19percent, respectively, of those responding to the study. In the 2000s, there are numerous studies that report a 90percent-plus response of single males and females who have engaged in oral sex. This seems to be a significant statistic with the spread of this dangerous virus. This is not as ominous as it sounds. There are vaccines available today that will prevent these viruses from causing oral or cervical cancer. A medication called Gardasil (quadrivalent human papilloma virus type 6, 11, 16, 18 recombinant vaccine) gives protection against these more virulent viruses. It is recommended for routine immunization of males and females at ages 11 to 12 with three successive doses. The cost is between $130 to $160 per dose. It is 90percent to 100percent effective at preventing cervical dysplasia (precancer) and 90percent effective preventing oral high-grade dysplasia (pre-cancer). Please talk to your pediatrician or family physician about this medication. Dr. Donald Cohen is chief of oral pathology at the University of Florida, Department or Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology.

Stephanie Gomes, P.A. Joseph Starnes, P.A. 000GJEM HPV can cause more than warts Pat Theobald is on a mission two actually. The 63-year-old Rainbow Springs resident doesnt have much time for either, but shes making the best of a dire situation. In March, Theobald was diagnosed with an aggressive stage of pancreatic cancer and she didnt need the doctor to tell her what was next, she knew all too well after watching her mother pass away five years ago from the same disease. Theobald knew the clock on life was ticking, and ticking fast. When (the doctors) first told me what my diagnosis was, I knew what the outcome was going to be, she said, explaining she was given a year to live. My mom passed away from pancreatic cancer five years ago, so I was familiar with the disease. I knew what he was going to tell me. She knew there was little she could do about results, or likely the outcome. Its out of my hands and its in Gods hands, said Theobald, who began chemotherapy treatments in May at Shands Hospital in Gainesville. I was going to do whatever I could to make what I could with time left, and Ive been doing that. Her first mission is to educate the public and raise awareness. November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, Theoblad said, in which the public is encouraged to wear purple much like folks are asked to wear pink during October and the national Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. Awareness is key, Theobald said. Currently, she explained there are no tests available for early detection of pancreatic cancer and the survival rate for the disease is 6 percent for five years. Survival rates for colon, breast and prostate cancers are better than 65 percent, according to the American Cancer Society. However, there are early detection screenings for each one, which Theobald said is wonderful such tests are available. Funding for pancreatic cancer is critical, too, Theobald said. Its also one of most underfunded studies, she said, explaining one of the reasons is because of the lack of survivors to advocate the need for funding. Thats because a majority of the patients die within a year. Its a very short window to advocate for funding and awareness; so it falls on family and friends. This year alone, about 45,000 people in the United States will be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, but only about 5,000 will live past the first year, Theobald said, whereas the other cancers will have slightly fewer than 3 million survivors to advocate for research. (Pancreatic cancer) is a tough one, a lethal one. There are a lot of things people can do if they are aware, because its important. When I realized no one knows about Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, she said, I realized I needed to do something to raise awareness, to encourage people to wear a purple ribbon, wear purple, to participate, even if its running or walking in a Purple Stride event. I would like to see folks contribute, to raise awareness just anything you can do to raise awareness. No cancer is fun. This one desperately needs (funding) to catch up, have some early detection methods. Not knowing what the next day would bring, priorities have certainly changed for Theobald as well as her husband, Bernie. The couple has been married for 26 years, and together has seven children. All told, Theobald said, there family of 22, which includes spouses and grandchildren, have become the focus since the diagnosis last spring Certainly, my husband has been a trooper, she said. Hes been wonderful and supportive throughout this whole experience. But so has her entire family, she added. Our family is very close, Theobald explained. I am very blessed with the tremendous amount of support from my husband, our children, my sisters and my grandchildren. I dont know what anyone would do if they didnt have the family support. I wake up every day and thank God for all of the blessings in my life. Because its easy for me to see the tremendous amount of blessings I do have. I wish everybody could appreciate every day, before you get to the point where you know it could be your last day. I truly appreciate every day and every moment I have; I wish everyone could live that way. I dont know what tomorrow is going to bring. I wish everybody who was healthy could live that way. Its a difficult thing to do, until youre forced into it. Theobald admits to viewing life through a different perspective. I look at things differently such as the environment and I stop to smell the roses, she said. I dont want to jump out of an airplane. I dont have a bucket list of things I need to do before I die. All of the things I used to worry about, I dont worry about them anymore. I use time to spend with family and friends.I dont find it difficult to look on the bright side and not dwell on the unpleasant. Theobald said the simplest advice she could give to others is easy. I would say enjoy the little things in life, your family and friends, she said. Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you, focus on those things. Because you dont know whats going to happen. They could find they have the same prognosis as me, or something different. It could happen to anyone. Theobald makes it clear, she doesnt want pity, what she wants is to enjoy her time with her family and for folks to step up and help raise awareness for what others in the future may endure so that they have a fighting chance of overcoming the long odds. She asks that everyone take time this month to wear a purple ribbon or a purple shirt, just to recognize it is National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month. That, she said, could be the start for what is needed in research. The problem is early detection, and that is what is saving lives with breast, colon and other cancers, she said. They have millions of survivors, but they havent been able to develop a screening tool for pancreatic cancer. The symptoms are very vague and by the time they catch it, 80 percent of the folks are in the late stage. Its essential we develop a screening tool, raise awareness so funding increases. Woman hopes to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer JEFF BRYAN/Riverland NewsPat Theobald is on a mission to raise awareness about pancreatic cancer. In March, the 63-year-old Rainbow Springs resident was diagnosed with an aggressive stage of pancreatic cancer.

Sponsored by Virgilio Insurance Services and Mamas Kuntry Caf, the Breast Cancer Support Benefit Dinner Dance was held at the Caf with a Halloween theme last month. After dinner, Judy Bonard, support group president, spoke briefly about the mission of the group which provides encouragement as well as financial assistance to those with cancer issues. With Dr. Joseph Bennett as medical adviser, the group meets the second Friday monthly at 11:30 a.m. at his Inverness office with an average of 40 attending. Recently, the group has participated in five Navigating Cancer presentations on WYKE-TV, Channel 16. Music Master D.J. Saleem chose as the opening number, At Last, then he surprised me by asking me to dance to one of my favorite songs, Have I Told You Lately That I Love You? with him. Soon, this frequent entertainer at caf benefit functions was teaching the Electric Slide and Macarena to the crowd. A bevy of door prizes were awarded, donated by the Reyna Bell family, Al and Madeline Markowitz, Baby Blessings, Mary Thomas, Tim Herndon of Herndon Plumbing, Flora Pedicure and Nails, Louise DeSantis, Mark Novak Tech Burn Inc., La Bella Salon, Viviana Hair Salon, Mamas Kuntry Caf, Judy Bonard, and Arnold and Mary Ann Virgilio. Another recent benefit was the appearance of the Good Spirit Foundations Amazzing Steel Band concert at the First Presbyterian Church in Crystal River. Admission was a freewill offering. Opening with Surfin USA, the group was dressed in rainbow-colored, tie-dyed shirts as youthful members circulated throughout the audience in search of enthusiastic fans dancing in the church pews to award them with an appreciative lollipop. Never on Sunday brought wild applause as the youthful musicians, ranging in age from 4 through teens, performed admirably with Ed and Sue Messer, camp counselors, directing. Reegen Tristy and Cathy, beginner players, captured our heart with Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, accompanied by a tiny tot player on the maracas. Chopsticks was next. A groovy s rendition of Wipeout hit the spot with the crowd groovining and clapping to the beat. Toning it down a bit, Messer explained that the handmade drums are created by Tom Reynolds and are called Pans. Some have 15 notes inside, some 28. Josh, a volunteer player who started at age 9 and is now 27, was introduced. The haunting melody of Jamaica, made famous by Harry Belafonte, was the next choice for the amazing ensemble. Next, 100-year-old Frances Messer, founder of the group and mother of Ed Messer, was introduced. Adult volunteers are needed for the frequent camping experiences offered to children and youths. Located at 6161 E. Stokes Ferry Road in Hernando, call 352726-7531 and visit the camp to learn about it and the opportunities to serve as a volunteer.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER26, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Short books that concentrate on onetopic have enjoyed considerable popularity. This year, Audrey Grant put out Five Steps to Simplify the Endplay (Baron Barclay). The reader is given the five steps to work through when planning an endplay. There are 31 pages with illustrative deals covering these key aspects. Then there are 10 problems to solve, so the reader can check that the theory has been grasped. The main snag is that at the table, it can be harder spotting an endplay than executing it once the need is recognized. In this deal from the book, look at only the North and South hands. The contract is four spades. After West leads the diamond king, how should South plan the play, given that trumps are breaking 3-2? Three no-trump would have been easy to make, and perhaps North, since he has a strong doubleton, should have eschewed Stayman. But that would have ruined the lesson. South is in danger of losing three hearts and one diamond. He can hope that East has the heart ace, but better is to give West the lead with his known diamond queen when he must either lead a heart around to declarers king or concede a ruff-and-sluff. This requires eliminating all the black-suit cards from West. South wins the first trick, draws trumps, and cashes his four club tricks. Then he leads a diamond. West takes declarers jack with his queen, but he is endplayed. In real life, the endplay will be unnecessary half the time, because East will have the heart queen but not in books, magazines or lessons.

PG-13 MotherMotherRules Dear Annie: My supervisor rarely states his desires clearly. But if I take the initiative or ask him to clarify, he makes me feel like an idiot. He is condescending and highly critical of most people. He also is a nonstop gossip. He has portrayed me to others as racist, womanizing and incompetent. He has control over my payable time and my vacation requests. He has the ear of management and lives in the same neighborhood as many of my co-workers. I fear that bringing any of this up for discussion will create a level of retaliation far worse than the existing reality. Any suggestions? Kansas Dear Kansas: First, examine your own behavior to see whether there is cause for such rumors to take hold, and if so, correct it. Still, it is no excuse for your supervisor to spread gossip. He also seems ineffectual as a leader, because he does not make his wishes clear and stifles attempts by employees to clarify. Normally, these would be issues to document and then discuss with human resources or the supervisors boss. However, if you worry that doing so will create more problems, you have two choices: Either conduct yourself in a way that is beyond reproach and do your best to put up with it, or start looking for another job. Dear Annie: I love your column and hope you can clear something up for me. What is the correct thing to do when sending a sympathy card? It seems that most death notices these days suggest donating to a favorite charity in lieu of flowers. But is it OK just to send a card? Should money always be enclosed? My friend says yes, but I had never heard of this. Is this a religious custom or popular in certain parts of our country? I get a different answer every time I ask someone. Casper, Wyo. Dear Casper: A sympathy card is always appropriate, and no, you do not have to enclose money. If the bereaved is struggling financially, it is a kindness to send something to help defray funeral costs, but it is absolutely not mandatory. A donation to a charitable organization is a suggestion and also not required. The point is to express your condolences. Anything beyond that is up to you. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Doing It Myself, who is perplexed about how best to care for her aging mother who has mild dementia. It is not always beneficial to keep the parent in his or her own home. My 86-year-old mother quickly became unstable once she was widowed. She totaled the car in a bad accident, started berating neighborhood children for being loud and lied to a police officer about a friend who came to visit. She also gave lots of money to every charity that asked. All of those people who offered help at Dads funeral faded away. Mom was alone and unable to voice her fear. She thought she was supposed to stay in the house she built with my father. I nearly lost my mind, my business and my health trying to keep her at home. Over the objections of my out-of-state siblings, I moved her into a continuing care facility that provides for rehab, skilled care and assisted living. She went kicking and screaming, but eventually apologized for making it so hard on me. She has tons of new friends and is happy and active. Everyone who works there loves her, and she knows it. Two weeks after she moved in, she said, I wish Id moved here three years ago. I do, too. W. Dear W.: A lot of folks have found that the company and care at a retirement or assisted-living facility is quite enjoyable once they have made the adjustment.
