Adams received an email Tuesday from ethics commission attorney Gray Shafer saying the law that forbids an official from mixing public and private business interests has an important exemption. Shafer said as long as the business transaction is the result of a sealed bid, and the commissioner formally discloses his conflict, it is allowed. Adams, who co-owns a private Sumter County landfill, sought the opinion to avoid potential conflicts of interest. The issue arose last week when the county commission approved an interlocal agreement with Hernando County to dispose trash during an emergency. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said he dismissed the idea of adding Marion County to the agreement because Marion disposes its trash in Adams Heart of Florida landfill. Adams said Tuesday that he learned quickly in Florida Association of Counties seminars that ethics commission officials are available to render opinions. They have a whole herd of attorneys, he said. Ive probably talked to them 25 or 30 times since Ive been in office. Adams, who is critical of management and costs at the Citrus County landfill, believes the county could save significantly if it contracted with a private company. He said he wanted to make sure that if the county got to that point, or wanted to contract with Marion County, he stood on ethical ground. I want to follow the right Review: No ethics issues for Adams Attorney says commissioner free to conduct business with county as long as conditions are met Scott Adamssaid he never doubted results of inquiry.

In which every community in the county will have a boxing academy and youth center, prodding, pushing, building and fashioning the young and those not as young into the best they can be. The youth really need a place, a place with structure that will teach them to feel good about themselves and their abilities. A place they can jump on a bike and get to easily and train to defend themselves and stay fit, Hadden said. Hadden, whose not-forprofit academy is located at 6314 S.

SIDIBE Staff writerA manager at a local drug store was arrested Monday on suspicion of stealing scratch-off lottery tickets and redeeming them. Thomas Beuford Dorton, 33, Ringley Terrace, Inverness, is facing a single count of grand theft for allegedly swiping $4,250 worth of lottery tickets from his employer, B&W Rexall Drugs in Inverness. He also is facing an extra charge of trafficking or endeavoring to traffic in stolen property. According to Dortons arrest affidavit, the owner of the store filed a report with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office indicating that he was alerted by his bank that his lottery account had been overdrawn by $6,000. The bank also told him they were investigating the discrepancy and that they already accounted for 15 tickets worth $20 apiece. The store also contacted the lottery commission, which was able to locate where the tickets were redeemed at Winn-Dixie in Inverness. When the owner and the stores office manager went to Winn-Dixie to view surveillance video, they reportedly identified Dorton cashing one of the missing lottery tickets. Store officials told investigators that Dorton had been employed at the store for five years and was the stores current manager. When investigators contacted Dorton, he reportedly admitted to taking an undetermined number of lottery tickets from the store, Manager accused of stealing lotto tickets Thomas Dorton See LOTTO/ Page A5 CHRISVANORMER Staff writerBetter reconsider hosting Thanksgiving dinner on the patio this year. The weather is predicted to be cool enough to gel the giblet gravy. We do have potential for some pretty good storms, said Capt. Joe Eckstein, director, Emergency Management, Citrus County Sheriffs Office. It really doesnt have anything to do with hurricane season. This time of year, we get those cold fronts coming down. They are predicting the possibility of 40to 60mile-per-hour wind gusts and some storms late Tuesday afternoon and into Wednesday morning. Although Tuesdays temperatures reached into the midto high-70s, the digits are expected to drop fast today, with readings in the low 60s and a rain chance of 60 percent in Citrus County. Tonight, while the chance of rain is only about 20 percent, the temperature is predicted to drop below freezing in some areas. Thursday morning should offer a good opportunity to warm up with cooking Thanksgiving dinner, as the daily high temperature is projected at no more than 58 degrees. If the timing stays the way they are anticipating it, we may get about two inches of rain and it should be gone and we should have some nice, real cool weather for the holiday, Eckstein said Tuesday. As the storm system moves through, state emergency management officials are urging residents to stay alert and exercise caution as conditions will present the potential for heavy rains, isolated tornadoes Brrrrr!

Judge OKs Casey Anthony settlementTAMPA A federal bankruptcy judge has approved a settlement between Casey Anthony and a Texas search group that helped look for her missing 2-year-old daughter, Caylee. Texas Equusearch Mounted Search and Recovery will be allowed to have an unsecured claim of $75,000 in Anthonys bankruptcy case under the terms of the settlement. Judge K. Rodney May approved the settlement Monday in Tampa. The search group wont be entitled to any other claims and wont be allowed any further dealings in the case. The group had objected to the bankruptcy, claiming it spent more than $100,000 searching for the girl in 2008. Attorneys for the group said Anthony knew her daughter was already dead. Anthony was acquitted of murder in the girls death during a 2011 trial and has been in hiding since then.Woman gets 15 years in DUI deathBROOKSVILLE A Tampa Bay area woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for fatally striking a construction worker with her truck while under the influence of methadone. A Hernando County judge gave 47-year-old Karen Macchione the maximum sentence on Tuesday. She was convicted last month of DUI manslaughter. Macchione was driving on the Suncoast Parkway in November 2011 when her pickup truck veered into a closed lane where workers were painting lane markers. The truck hit 28-year-old Steve Thompson Jr., who later died.GOP officials call on Radel to step downTAMPA A U.S. congressman from Florida who recently pleaded guilty to cocaine possession is focusing on rehab and will return to work, his aide said Tuesday, despite calls from the states top Republican Party officials for him to step down. On Monday, party chairman Lenny Curry suggested U.S. Rep. Trey Radel should resign after his recent conviction in Washington, D.C. Radel, if he refuses to resign, could only be expelled from the House if two-thirds of the members agree. Outside of the Civil War, only two House members have been expelled, both for bribery. two state champions in amateur boxing. Haddens own daughter Angelina Banks, 18, won the Florida Golden Gloves title in 2010 and has her eyes set on another amateur milestone the Olympics. The welterweight said she has been training since she was 11 years old. My dad kind of got me into it for self-defense and then I became hooked, Banks said. The Lecanto High School graduate said she trains between stints as a pre-med student at Central Florida College and being an EMT at Nature Coast EMS. Its tough trying to juggle all of it, but I like boxing and my goal is to go the Olympics, she said. Banks said if she doesnt make the 2016 Games in Brazil, she will still continue to train for the next one, four years later. Newly-minted 2013 Florida Police Athletic League (PAL) Super Heavyweight William Cleveland, 19, has similar plans. Cleveland, who tries to fit in training between being a physical therapy student at Central Florida College and work at Publix Supermarket in Homosassa, said the Olympics is big goal for him. Cleveland scored a third-round knockout of his opponent at the PAL event in Fort Pierce in early November. He became hobbled by a recent vehicle crash, but is champing at the bit to begin serious training for the Golden Gloves. I started boxing three and a half years ago and have been doing it since, Cleveland said. Cleveland said his initial sport of choice was basketball, playing at Lecanto High School and eventually at Crystal River High School, where he graduated in 2012. Hadden said Cleveland and Banks are examples of young people he likes to help mold through training poised, motivated and focused on education. I emphasize schooling and community involvement. I encourage them to volunteer to help people less fortunate than they are, he said. Hadden said his facility has something for every age group. Its not all boxing. We have cardio training and other exercises people can do to get fit if they dont like the boxing exercises. Juanita Fuge, a board member of the academy, said Haddens gym is offering an invaluable service in the area, especially to the youth. It is really a great place for a family to come to work out, but mostly he (Hadden) wants to help children and encourage good citizenship.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

From staff reports From the CAPITAL Absentee ballot change draws fireSecretary of State Ken Detzner has sent a directive to county supervisors of elections that could change how some voters return absentee ballots but the move quickly drew criticism from Democrats. The Tampa Bay Times reported that Detzner wrote to supervisors Monday advising them that they should not solicit return of absentee ballots at any place other than a supervisors office, except for the purpose of having the absentee ballot cancelled if the voter wants to vote in person. That would prevent supervisors from having ballot dropoff locations that might be more convenient for voters. Democrats on Tuesday quickly criticized the directive by Detzner, who is part of Republican Gov. Rick Scotts administration. The Florida Democratic Party issued a news release contending that directive was an attempt to suppress voting. Yesterdays harsh new restrictions on absentee ballots confirm that Rick Scott will say or do anything to hang on to power, state Democratic Chairwoman Allison Tant said in the news release.From wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Judge awards Olsen more than $1M in fees MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerPlaintiffs in a 10-year-old lawsuit against former Black Diamond developer Stan Olsen have been ordered to pay Olsen $1.5 million in attorneys fees and costs. The order, signed Monday by Circuit Judge Patricia Thomas, splits the liability of paying fees among six plaintiffs, all former Black Diamond property owners who claimed Olsen tricked them into buying what they thought were equity shares of the golf courses and facilities. Actually, the memberships were only for the Black Diamond Golf Club Inc., which only held an option to purchase the golf course facilities after the 750th membership was sold. Olsen oversaw the nonprofit golf club corporation. Hearings and trials in state and federal courts ended with judgments in Olsens favor. The courts ruled Olsen did not use misleading advertising or make false claims. Last month, Thomas ruled the statute of limitations had run out in several claims and she dismissed all the pending lawsuits against Olsen. Olsen developed Black Diamond from a rock quarry in 1987 and turned it into Citrus Countys first premier exclusive community. He sold the golf courses and remaining assets in 2011 to Coloradobased Escalante Golf Inc., which is not part of the lawsuit.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or email@example.com. NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Welcome to Wendys 2.0. Recently, the Wendys on Main Street in Inverness reopened after a whirlwind 12-week complete rebuild. Fresh is one of the companys core values, and fresh is how Wendys district manager Michael Korta described the restaurants new look. We wanted to reflect that in the building, using a fresh design this particular restaurant was 24 years old, he said as he pointed out the changes that include an updated design, replacing beige brick with a modern red and black and tall window exterior and a streamlined white tile and stainless steel interior. A bright red feature wall houses a glass-enclosed decorative fireplace. The furniture is retromodern, light wood and chrome, padded chairs, booths and tables, plus theres a Wi-Fi counter with plenty of electrical outlets, and flat-screen TVs in the dining area. Korta said the square footage is exactly the same as the former restaurant, with increased kitchen space, which means an unfortunate loss of about 10 seats in the dining room. It doesnt fit our normal profile for a new restaurant, Korta said. We like to add square footage, but because of code (issues), we couldnt. He said cost and time are the reasons they chose to tear down and rebuild rather than renovate. Come for the burgers, but stay for the dining rooms dual 120-plus flavor, state-of-the-art soda machines. Its a huge draw, Korta said. People are mesmerized by this machine. From peach Sprite to raspberry ginger ale to regular Diet Coke, a person could probably create a different soda flavor combination every day for a year and not repeat. The flavors actually mix in the air as the soda comes out of the machine and a fan blows the scent so you get the full effect, Korta said. He added that the free Wi-Fi so far has been a hit with both high school students coming in after school and senior citizens who bring in their laptops, iPads and tablets. Also, Wendys donated 10 percent of opening day sales to Citrus United Basket, about $1,000, and will continue to be involved with local community projects, Korta said. One of the best things we not only just about doubled the number of employees here, we were able to keep the employees that were here before, which was a huge concern with many of our customers, Korta said. So, we havent changed the people or the product. They really went the extra mile to bring it back into a better state than it was, said Eric Williams, Inverness city manager in training. The fact that they rebuilt there instead of seeking out another location shows that they value the real estate under the building. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or firstname.lastname@example.org Inverness restaurant opens with fresh new look MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleWendys district manager Michael Korta explains the new fresh store design falls directly in line with his companys core values of freshness. Within a matter of 12 weeks, the former Wendys location was razed and a new building was erected in its place with an interior that includes retro-modern furniture design and a Wi-Fi counter, plus two state-of-the-art self-serve soda machines.

The division reviews site plans and inspects site development for conformance with land development regulations as set out in the countys Land Development Code (LDC).

Zimmerman had 5 guns, ammo Associated PressSANFORD George Zimmerman had five guns and more than 100 rounds of ammunition with him when deputies arrested him earlier this month on domestic violence charges, according to court documents released Tuesday. A search warrant made public by the Seminole County court clerk shows that Zimmerman had a 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and three handguns when he was arrested Nov. 18 at his girlfriends house. The girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, told deputies that Zimmerman pointed a shotgun at her during an argument and also used it to smash her coffee table. Zimmerman is free on $9,000 bail on charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief. He is not allowed to have guns as a condition of his bail. He has entered a written plea of not guilty. Zimmerman, 30, was acquitted of murder in July in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin during a confrontation in the community where Zimmerman was a neighborhood watch volunteer. The shooting sparked accusations that Zimmerman had racially profiled Martin, who was black and unarmed, and led to nationwide debates over self-defense laws. Scheibe told deputies she asked Zimmerman to leave the house they were sharing during an argument. Scheibe said in an arrest report that he began packing his belongings, including some of the weapons, but became upset and took the shotgun out of the case. The weapons were locked in a soft-sided case with a combination lock when deputies arrived, according to the warrant. In addition to the shotgun and AR-15 rifle, the warrant says Zimmerman had three handguns: a Glock 19, a Taurus 9mm and an Interarms .380-caliber.

When you think of the difficult birth that we had with Turn Off the Dark, he said, its worked out so well. Three hugely successful years, and then its off to Germany, its off to Las Vegas, Bono said Monday night on the red carpet for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. U2 contributed to the films soundtrack with Ordinary Love. Its the bands first new song in three years and it plays at the end of the movie. Bono and Edge also wrote the music for Spider-Man. By the time it closes, more than 2 million people will have seen it. But the musical had a tumultuous run, including six delayed opening nights, numerous injuries to the cast, and the publicized firing of director Julie Taymor. It was also Broadways most expensive show, costing around $75 million. The musical turns off its light at the Foxwoods Theater on Jan. 4.CBS: Lara Logan, producer ordered to take leaveNEW YORK CBS has ordered Minutes correspondent Lara Logan and her producer to take a leave of absence following a critical internal review of their handling of the shows October story on the Benghazi raid. The show relied on an interview with a security contractor who said he was at the U.S. mission in Libya the night it was attacked last year, but questions were raised about whether the source was lying. A CBS internal report obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday found the network did a poor job vetting the story. CBS Chairman Jeff Fager, who is also the Minutes executive producer, said he asked Logan and her producer, Max McClellan, to take a leave of absence.Toy company sues Beastie BoysSAN FRANCISCO A Northern California toy company is fighting for its right to parody a popular Beastie Boys song. Oakland-based GoldieBlox filed a lawsuit in federal court Thursday seeking permission to continue using a spoof of the rap song Girls. The companys marketing video of the spoof has gone viral in recent weeks. Some 8 million people have viewed it on YouTube. The video depicts girls singing about building spaceships and coding software. The company said it filed the lawsuit after the Beastie Boys threatened their own legal action for copyright infringement. On Monday, the two surviving band members said in an open letter that they support the companys message of empowering girls. But they have a blanket ban on using their songs in advertisements.Alec Baldwins show ending on MSNBCNEW YORK MSNBC and Alec Baldwin said they are ending the actors talk show, which was suspended for two weeks after the actor used an anti-gay slur against a photographer in a New York City street. MSNBC said it was a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best. From wire reports Associated PressThe Victoria and Albert Museum said it has discovered a previously unknown oil sketch by John Constable tucked beneath the lining of another work by the English romantic painter known for his landscapes. Museum officials said the sketch of trees underneath an unsettled sky was most likely painted in 1821 or 1822.

Marion County has a 20year, $20 million contract with Heart of Florida to dispose garbage at $8 a ton. Adams said in an interview last week that Marion County cannot sell any of its landfill space; however, the county could provide it free of charge to Citrus County in an interlocal agreement. Shafer said because Marion County contracts with Heart of Florida and not with Adams personally, he wouldnt benefit from any arrangement between Marion and Citrus counties. The opinion does suggest situations that would require Adams to abstain from voting. He could not, for example, participate or vote on the wording that sought sealed bids for landfill services if his company planned to bid. Adams said he will continue to ask questions of acting county attorney Kerry Parsons before voting on landfill matters. Based on how its presented on the agenda, if I see problems Im going to get an answer right then and there, he said. He said he wasnt surprised by the Shafers opinion but was glad to get it anyhow. I knew the answer, he said, but I wanted my political foes to be put to rest.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com. and damaging wind gusts. Behind Tuesdays storm system, a cold air mass today will bring subfreezing temperatures to North Florida and cold wind chills along the entire state Wednesday night through Friday night. A large portion of northern Florida will be affected, and temperatures could reach the mid-30s over interior portions of Central Florida. The National Weather Service typically issues freeze warnings when subfreezing temperatures are imminent or highly likely for at least two hours. These conditions can kill crops and other sensitive vegetation. The elderly and the homeless are especially vulnerable to the cold, and cold weather shelter opening criteria may be met in many locations. Breezy conditions also will bring an elevated threat for rip currents along Atlantic Coast beaches through Sunday. When red flags are flying, beachgoers should remain alert while visiting Floridas beaches. Additionally, the wildfire danger is elevated because of low humidity values, strong winds and fairly dry vegetation across the state. Residents and visitors to the state should monitor local media outlets for local warnings and ensure that their NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio alert settings are turned on. Thanksgiving travelers also should use caution on area roadways during heavy rain and practice fire safety with the incoming cold temperatures later this week.

Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. A local ad campaign by a Catholic high school for girls in Kentucky is generating nationwide buzz with the message that young women dont need to find Prince Charming to live happily ever after. Mercy Academys principal, Amy Elstone, said the billboard campaign used pointed wording like Youre Not a Princess, and Lifes Not a Fairy Tale, to highlight the private schools emphasis on critical thinking. The posters popped up recently at a few bus stops and billboards around the city, but the message has drawn wider attention with the suggestion that what girls need to live a fairy tale life is their own minds. The girl-power theme attracted the attention of NBCs Today and other national outlets, and the school says it has been a smashing success. We just want to teach our girls that they write their story, not society, not popular culture, and we try to empower them to do that, Elstone said. The print ads were introduced during a season when eighth-grade students are making decisions about high school, and Mercy, which is an all-girls school, wanted an unconventional message as part of its marketing, she said. We feel like we have a unique approach to education and real-life learning, and we were struggling with a way to articulate that, she said. The school, which is affiliated with the Catholic Sisters of Mercy, has about 550 students and a $10,000 annual tuition. The school is run by a lay board of directors. The ads are simple in composition, with a gray background decorated by well-known fairy tale symbols, like magic wands and slippers. One of the ads has a faceless prince, with the message, Dont Wait for a Prince ... Be Able to Rescue Yourself. Its exactly what girls need to hear, said David Vawter, chief creative officer at Doe Anderson, the firm that designed the campaign. Vawter said Mercy was initially concerned that the message would be seen as negative, but school officials decided to embrace its edginess. Its a metaphor for saying you need to prepare for real life, he said. The ad campaign echoes a message that has become increasingly common, encouraging girls and women to live independently and question traditional gender roles. For instance, Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandbergs bestselling book, Lean In, urges women to more aggressively pursue their career goals. A recent video by toy company GoldieBlox also went viral, showing three young girls singing a parody of the Beastie Boys song Girls with lyrics about girls building spaceships and coding software. Boys are valued for being tough and rough and playing sports and not crying, and girls are taught to be soft and helpless, and thats not a good message for either boys or girls, said Marsha Weinstein, director of Louisville Girls Leadership, an organization that selects girls from each of the citys high schools to work on team projects. Weinstein said the Mercy ads cut right to the chase. Just think about Martin Luther King and I Have A Dream, Weinstein said. Those were just words, you could say, but that was a powerful message. Beverly Engberg, 78BEVERLY HILLSBeverly Ann Engberg, 78, of Beverly Hills, Fla., passed into the Life Triumphant at home Sunday, Nov.24, 2013, surrounded by her immediate family and under the loving care of Citrus County Hospice.

Strong exports of Spam and peanut butter pushed the food producer beyond Wall Street expectations for the fourth quarter. The luxury retailer opened the holiday shopping season with a bang, reporting a 50 percent spike in thirdquarter profit.

Interestrates Dow, S&P 500 nudge higher; Nasdaq ends above 4,000 Associated PressNEW YORK Upbeat news from the housing industry and luxury retailer Tiffany & Co. nudged the stock market higher Tuesday. Investors also got another market milestone when the Nasdaq composite closed above the 4,000point mark for the first time in 13 years. The event follows two other round-number moments last week. The Standard & Poors 500 index closed above 1,800 for the first time, and the Dow Jones industrial average finished above 16,000. On Tuesday, homebuilder shares were among the top gainers in the broader stock market. They rose after the Commerce Department reported that approvals for housing permits rose in October at the fastest pace in five years. Those applications indicate that builders expect heightened demand. Most of the growth in the report came from apartment permits, not homes, but investors felt the data was positive. Its going to translate into job creation once those permits turn into actual construction, said Quincy Krosby, market strategist with Prudential Financial. Shares of PulteGroup, Toll Brothers and Lennar Corp. all rose 3 percent or more. The Nasdaq closed up 23.18 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,017.75. The last time the Nasdaq closed above the 4,000-point level was Sept. 6, 2000. The other two major stock indexes inched higher. The Dow rose less than a point to 16,072.80. The S&P 500 index also rose less than a point, to 1,802.75. Tiffany & Co. rose the most in the S&P 500 index. The jewelry chain jumped $7.03, or 9 percent, to $88.02, after it reported strong third-quarter earnings. The company also raised its full-year forecast. Stock and bond markets are closed Thursday in observance of Thanksgiving. On Friday, the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq will close early. Investors continue to pay close attention to any details from retailers, with the approach of Black Friday, the busy shopping day that follows Thanksgiving. Due to the lateness of Thanksgiving, the holiday shopping season is a week shorter than usual and that could affect the amount of shopping people do. An increasing number of retailers are opening up on Thanksgiving to draw in customers. Holiday shopping can account for as much as 40 percent of the retail industrys annual sales. The National Retail Federation, the nations largest retail trade group, expects an increase of 3.9 percent to $602.1 billion in holiday sales this year Already, many retailers have trimmed profit forecasts for the year, citing Americans hesitation to spend a lot of money. Barnes & Noble shares fell 98 cents, or 6 percent, to $15.45 after the booksellers fiscal secondquarter sales fell short of Wall Street expectations. In other company news, mens clothing store Jos. A. Bank rose $5.69, or 11 percent, to $56.29 after rival Mens Wearhouse offered to buy the company for $1.5 billion. Mens Wearhouse rose $3.53, or 8 percent, to $50.60. Federal officials warn of holiday scams, counterfeit products Associated PressMIAMI Federal authorities warned the public on Tuesday of holiday scams involving counterfeit products including cellphone accessories and luxury goods. It always comes down to the adage: You get what you pay for, said Gerard ONeil, the assistance special agent in charge in Miami of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcements Homeland Security Investigations. And in the instance of items that are made in infringement patent and trademark violations, or knock-offs as they call them, the consumer does not get what they pay for. The merchandise is inferior in design and performance, he explained, often breaking down or failing apart not long after purchase. They may look pretty, but essentially they are junk, he said. The most popular counterfeit products include headphones, sports jerseys, shoes, perfumes, toys and watches. Over the last year, agents with ICEs Homeland Security Investigations have performed 350 seizures that netted more than 750,000 fake items with a value at the wholesale level of $14 million. The manufactured retail price is valued at over $80 million, authorities said. Basically theyre a parasite that is draining off of U.S. jobs and the economy and the consumer, ONeil said. The market is flooded with counterfeit products being sold at stores, on street corners and online during the holiday shopping season, authorities said. Consumers need to be aware that counterfeiters dont care if the products you buy are well made, if they make you sick, or if they arrive at all, Lev Kubiak, director of the National Intellectual Property Rights Coordination Center, said in a press release. These criminals are preying on your holiday spirit of giving to make a quick buck and fund their criminal enterprises. Sears Canada to lay off nearly 800 workersTORONTO Sears Canada is laying off nearly 800 employees across its operations as it moves ahead with a multi-year plan to reduce operating costs. The retailer said Tuesday that most of the cuts would be made in its repair services and parts businesses, where 712 jobs will be eliminated during the next six months. Another 79 employees will lose their jobs in the companys head office in Toronto. Sears Canada is looking for more ways to improve its financial results after having earlier sold several department store leases. Sears Canada has already closed some of its big city locations in Western Canada and has announced plans to vacate other large stores.Morning-after pill has weight limit, says drugmakerPARIS A French contraceptive maker said Tuesday that its morning-after pill doesnt work when taken by women who weigh more than 176 pounds and plans to change its labels to warn patients. The decision to change its labels by HRA Pharma is based on a previous study of levonorgestrel, one of the active ingredients in its Norlevo emergency contraceptive. Norlevo is not sold in the U.S. but another drug with the same active ingredient is widely available. From wire reports Business HIGHLIGHTS Burger King expanding in three locations in France Associated PressNEW YORK McDonalds Le Royal Cheese in France will soon be facing more competition with Burger King signing a deal to expand in the country. The Miami-based chain said Tuesday that its partnering with restaurant operator Groupe Olivier Bertrand to build on its three French locations, which are in travel hubs such as airports. It didnt specify the financial terms or how many more restaurants it will open, but said the joint venture is expected to create 1,200 jobs in the first year. Burger King re-entered the French market last year after exiting in 1997, said Jose Cil, Burger Kings president of the region encompassing Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The company had had as many as 40 locations in France in the past. Globally, Burger King Worldwide Inc. has more than 13,000 locations. The company has pointed to McDonalds 34,000 locations as evidence of how much room it has to grow. But it will be up against the marketing muscle of its much bigger rival in many regions. In France, for example, McDonalds has more than 1,200 locations. In the latest quarter, McDonalds Corp. said sales for Europe rose 0.2 percent at established locations. The company doesnt break out its performance by country but said France had solid results. Burger King reported a 2.4 percent increase in the same period for the region encompassing Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The deal with restaurant operator Groupe Olivier Bertrand is just the latest push by Burger King to rake in more revenue by striking deals with franchise operators overseas. Since owner 3G Capital announced last year that it was taking Burger King public again, the chain has signed deals to open locations in Brazil, China, India, Russia and South Africa. Associated PressBurger King will create 1,200 new jobs with its expansion in France. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER27, 2013 A7
OPINION Page A8WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2013 Taxpayer dollars down the drainThe absurdity continues with the two hospital boards of Citrus Memorial. They have spent $10 million of taxpayers money on their attorneys, trying to decide who should be in charge of what at the hospital. Now these same boards are arguing over spending less than a half-million dollars for patient care monitors. But wait, it gets ever crazier. While the two boards are meeting together to try to work the problem out, their now very rich attorney interrupts the discussion and tells the board its time to stop and go to another meeting with him. The meeting was to discuss ongoing litigation. Read: more lawyer dollars to be spent. But wait, just once more. The incredibly arrogant boards members are going to create yet another board for oversight of the new corporation coming to provide health services to the taxpayers and poor of the county. Id like to see the district attorney look into where all the taxpayer money was spent that was supposed to help the hospital serve the countys health care needs. Bob Barry InvernessNew blood needed in commission racesElection time is around the corner. So far there are three candidates running for two district seats District 2 and 4. I think we need new blood in the races. What I would like to see is what platform these candidates are going to run on. We already know what the incumbents are doing. Citrus County has to have real people who understand the truth of the value of the people of this county. So with that said, I would like to give you my platform. 1. Change the rules on public input on agenda items and let the people speak before the vote. 2. Repeal the fire district fee and change it to an Ad valorem tax based on value. 3. End the Port Citrus funding and no more funding for consultations on this matter. 4. Restore the road maintenance funding to full level. 5. Line item ad valorem taxes for all services (fire, sheriff, solid waste, storm water). 6. Create a sanitation department run by the county with county workers picking up garbage. (No private company). 7. A no vote on Sheriff (Jeff) Dawsy helicopter ambulance service. 8. Cut the size of government in Citrus County to its growth in population. 9. Cut all county salaries above $60,000 to a realistic value of the office they hold by 10 percent. 10. I would look for a new county administrator at a salary reduction. 11. Pay no attention to any special interest as to the concerns of the business of this county.Claude Strass Homosassa Lets practice saying the sentence. We dont know. We will need to say it an awful lot in the coming months, because we may have our own Trayvon Martin case brewing in Detroit. The shooting death of a young woman, Renisha McBride, has sides lining up. And after the shooter was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter and felony firearm on Friday, the rumbling grew louder. But remember. We dont know. Say it. We dont know anything except a woman is dead and a man allegedly shot her. I have to write allegedly even though no one apparently disputes that because that is journalistic protocol for how you speak before a case is decided. We would be wise to use protocol ourselves. Because you already may have formed an opinion when you heard that a 54-year-old white man from Dearborn Heights shot a 19-year-old black woman from Detroit when she allegedly banged on his front door in the wee hours of the morning. But we dont know. You may feel certain there is no justification for such violence; that the woman was just looking for help. But we dont know. You may believe the woman said or did something threatening, because nobody just shoots someone for being on the porch, right? But we dont know. You may argue that people get nervous with guns in their hands, and the man, Theodore Wafer, told police his 12-gauge shotgun went off by accident. But we dont know. You may say, as family members of McBride have told the media, that this was about racial profiling. But we dont know. You may say the way Wafer shot McBride will prove his intentions, but the family first claimed she was shot in the back of the head and the autopsy by the medical examiners office revealed she was shot in the face. And we dont know. You may agree with those who say, She was just an innocent kid, her cellphone was dead, she had no options, she was trying to get home. But we dont know. You may say, She was hardly innocent, her blood-alcohol level was 0.218 percent and there was marijuana in her system, according to the toxicology report. But we dont know. You may think people who answer the door with a shotgun are trigger-happy to begin with, prone to shoot first and ask questions later. But we dont know. You may think every American has the right to defend his or her home, that guns are constitutionally protected, that evidence will show this woman was a threat to the homeowner. But we dont know. You may think, This is an irresponsible teen. She plowed into a parked car and fled the scene of an accident because she was drunk. But we dont know. You may claim, This is an irresponsible shooter. There were no signs of forced entry, so what harm could he possibly have feared that justified pulling a trigger? But we dont know. You might declare, This is what always happens. The victim will be blamed, the dead cannot speak, the shooter will be exonerated, and just like in the Martin case, the guy will go free. But we dont know. You might fret that, Here we go again. A man trying to protect himself will be the latest pawn in the racial fingerpointing, to be vilified unfairly for the rest of his life. But we dont know. Emotions run hot. Conclusions run rampant. Everyone wants to solve this case before the people charged to do it get a chance. But that is not healthy. That is not wise. That is historically dangerous. Because history shows we are constantly amazed at how different a case looks once all the facts are brought to light. I have no idea what actually happened that terrible night in Dearborn Heights. I do know that nobody wants to go through another Trayvon Martin situation, and this is a delicate tinderbox of a case, a blowing candle away from exploding. Everybody wants justice quickly. But justice should be immune to impatience. Justice should take as much time and effort as it needs to ensure everything and everyone is heard from and considered. Thats what makes justice so precious. And that much, we all know.Contact Mitch Albom at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We cautioned at the time that the county should first focus on planning, and only then act on solutions. It didnt happen that way, and the TDC stumbled badly. Recently we were subjected to the painful vision of a highdollar job offer being extended to a candidate whose rsum raised more questions than it answered, then the withdrawal of that offer. Now the TDC is regrouping, and it should. Our advice remains the same: figure out whats really needed, plan carefully, and then act. The TDC asked its chair, county commissioner Rebecca Bays, and assistant county administrator Cathy Pearson to report in December on plans for the future direction of Citrus Countys tourism marketing. Although assigning a target date is reasonable, December might be too quick for the really thorough planning required. The TDC has rich resources and it should use them: It has research data on who visits the county, why, what they do while theyre here and what it will take to get them to return. Review that research and study its implications. It has a strategic plan that articulates specific needs based on the research, and an analysis of staff, resources and timelines to address strategic goals. Update the analysis if needed, but dont ignore it. It has a strong ally in the countys Economic Development Council (EDC), whose strategic planning consultant spotlighted tourism as a target industry. Work closely with the Chamber of Commerce and the EDC to develop tourism in concert with other county economic development efforts. Co-locating with them in Crystal River, scheduled for 2014, will support synergies. The TDC also has a little breathing room, with an excellent summer and scalloping season concluded and the manatee season just getting underway. Whats really needed here is some common sense. We all know what brings large numbers of people to the county throughout the year. Look to the west side of the county the answer is staring us in the face. Its the water, and its the manatees. We always want people to stay a few extra days enjoying what we have to offer elsewhere in the county, but look at what gets large numbers of them here in the first place. We just need to acknowledge it and act appropriately. As one TDC member said, Weve got to do it right this time.

This is for the Dont worry about us tailgaters column in the Sound Off today. Unfortunately, this person is seriously misinformed.

If you hit them from behind, you are at fault and you probably deserve what you get.Tailgater always wrongIm responding to the Sound Off of Tuesday, Nov. 19, that appeared in the paper concerning tailgaters He said the tailgater is not wrong; its the person in front of him who stops or does whatever, and that is absolutely wrong. The tailgater is always wrong and he should keep an interval. And if he ever read anything about the laws on the books, he would know that thats the case.

As a client, the food pantry tries to make your visit pleasant. They do not tell you how many new people are applying or how difficult it is to get more food to supply the needs. They dont tell you that theyre being overwhelmed and overworked. They just want you to get the food that you need. Some of the areas in Citrus County are worse than New York City. Need accessI see in todays paper where theyre almost through with the road going down by Meadowcrest and Crystal River Apartments and I want to know when theyre going to make the road coming in from, if youre going towards the Walmart, into Crystal River Apartments. Because its a pain in the rump going all the way up a mile and a half, turning around and coming back to come into Crystal River Apartments when they could dig up the median a little bit there and make a road coming right into the left there.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Days after China asserted greater military control over a swath of the East China Sea to bolster claims to a cluster of disputed islands, the U.S. defied the move Tuesday as it flew two B-52 bombers through the area. The U.S. said what it described as a training mission was not flown to respond to Chinas latest military maneuver, yet the dramatic flights made clear that the U.S. will not recognize the new territorial claims that Beijing laid out over the weekend. The two unarmed U.S. B-52 bombers took off from their home base in Guam and flew through Chinas newly designated air defense zone, then returned to base, U.S. officials said. The bombers were in the zone for less than an hour, thundering across the Pacific skies during midday there, the officials said, adding that the aircraft encountered no problems. While the U.S. insisted the training mission was long-planned, it came just days after China issued a map and a new set of rules governing the zone, which includes a cluster of islands that are controlled by Japan but claimed by Beijing. U.S. officials would not publicly acknowledge the flights on Tuesday, but State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Chinas move appeared to be an attempt to change the status quo in the East China Sea. This will raise regional tensions and increase the risk of miscalculation, confrontation and accidents, she told reporters. China said Saturday that all aircraft entering the new air defense zone must notify Chinese authorities and are subject to emergency military measures if they do not identify themselves or obey Beijings orders. U.S. officials, however, said they have received no reaction to the bomber flights from the Chinese. The bomber mission underscores Washingtons immediate rejection of Chinas new rules. The U.S., which has hundreds of military aircraft based in the region, has said it has zero intention of complying. Japan likewise has called the zone invalid, unenforceable and dangerous, while Taiwan and South Korea, both close to the U.S., also rejected it. White House spokesman Josh Earnest would not specifically comment Tuesday on the military flights. It continues to be our view that the policy announced by the Chinese over weekend is unnecessarily inflammatory and has a destabilizing impact on the region, he told reporters traveling with Obama in Los Angeles. Chinas move to further assert its territorial claims over the islands is not expected to immediately spark confrontations with foreign aircraft. Yet it fits a pattern of putting teeth behind Chinas claims and could potentially lead to dangerous encounters depending on how vigorously China enforces it. Associated PressWASHINGTON Comet ISON is teasing the solar system as it dances with the sun and its giving astronomers mixed signals. Will it meet a fiery death or survive when it whips around the sun on Thursday? The icy comet will be only about 1 million miles away from the suns super-hot surface during its close encounter on Thanksgiving. On Monday, it looked like it was about to die even before it got there. On Tuesday, it appeared healthy again. We have never seen a comet like this, Naval Research Laboratory astrophysicist Karl Battams said during a NASA news conference Tuesday. It has been behaving strangely. Because it is so close to the sun, ISON will likely not be visible from Earth on Thursday except via a fleet of NASA telescopes and spacecraft aimed at the comet as it gets closest to the sun at 1:37 p.m., he said. And it will be a few hours before scientists know whether the comet survives. But even if the comet dies, Johns Hopkins University scientist Carey Lisse said theres a good chance that people on Earth will get an interesting cosmic show. The comets remnants could paint the sky with a wide swath of green in the Northern Hemisphere. Lisse gives the comet a 30 percent chance of surviving, adding that it is just a gut-feeling that has little to do with logic. Logically, it should be 50-50, he said. The comet two-thirds of a mile wide is made up of loosely packed ice and dirt, essentially a dirty snowball. It is a dinosaur bone, from the formation of the solar system 4.5 billion years ago, Lisse said. It has been in deep freeze for billions of years in the Oort cloud, a vast area of comets and debris that never formed into planets thats between 450 billion and 9 trillion miles from the sun, he said. The comet is racing around the sun, pulled close by our stars massive gravity, which can also break apart the dirty icy core. Comet ISON was first spotted by a Russian telescope in September last year. While many comets come out of the Oort cloud and return after a long trip through the solar system and many comets graze by the sun, this is the first one that astronomers have watched that is from the Oort cloud and is skimming the sun.NATION/WORLDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER27, 2013 A9 Blackshears II Aluminum 795-9722 Free Estimates www.blackshears.com Licensed & Insured RR 0042388 Years As Your Hometown Dealer 000GHRB HWY. 44 CRYSTAL RIVER 2013 2013 2013 2013 Rescreen Seamless Gutters Garage Screens New Screen Room Glass Room Conversions Shop Local This Holiday Season and Shop Local This Holiday Season and W W IN B B IG WIN BIG GRAND PRIZE Gaylord Palms ICE Featuring Frosty the Snowman Package Package Includes: One weeknight room accommodations at Gaylord Palms Resort Tickets for four to ICE! featuring Frosty the Snowman (includes UNLIMITED ADMISSION to ICE!)

Police chief to be shot with Taser to raise moneyKNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. The police chief of a small Indiana town is hoping to raise $9,000 for a new squad car by getting shot by a stun gun. A detective will use a Taser on Knightstown Police Chief Danny Baker and another town official at an event Wednesday in the towns middle school gym. Baker concedes his fundraising gambit is a bit extreme but he said his department desperately needs to update its fleet of vehicles. Only one of its four squad cars was in working order on Monday. It wont be the first time that Baker has attempted the stunt. He was also shot by a stun gun about five years ago to raise $500 for new equipment.Nurse slain at Texas hospital, suspect caughtLONGVIEW, Texas A nurse died and four people were injured Tuesday in a stabbing attack at an East Texas medical complex, which a hospital official called isolated. Police detained a man after the stabbings, which happened around 7 a.m. Tuesday at the Ambulatory Surgical Center of Good Shepherd Medical Center in Longview. Longview Police Officer Kristie Brian had no immediate information on charges or a possible motive for the stabbings. The name of the nurse who died and further details on her duties were not immediately released. A visitor who was stabbed is in critical condition, hospital spokeswoman Victoria Ashworth said, while two other visitors and a hospital worker were in good condition. Their names also werent released. The suspect was not hurt, Ashworth said.Gay couple who protested fined one centLOUISVILLE, Ky. A gay couple arrested after refusing to leave the county clerks office where they had been refused a marriage license have been found guilty of trespassing and fined one cent. The Rev. Maurice Bojangles Blanchard and Dominique James were arrested in January after refusing to leave at closing time. Blanchard told The Courier-Journal after the verdict was returned it seemed the jury understood their stance and called it a big victory. Assistant Jefferson County Attorney Prosecutor Matthew Welch said evidence was overwhelming that the pair trespassed. But he left it to the jury to decide the amount of the fine. The newspaper reported that the men faced a maximum fine of $250 for the charge of third-degree trespassing.

The prisoners released included Mullah Abdul Ahad Jahangirwal, a former adviser to Taliban leader Mullah Omar; Mullah Abdul Manan, a former Taliban governor in the Afghan province of Helmand; and Mullah Younus, a former military commander, said two Pakistani government officials and a member of the Taliban. Pakistan also quietly released nearly a dozen lowerranking Taliban prisoners in October, said an Afghan official. All the officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to journalists. Pakistan has now released around four dozen Taliban prisoners over the last year in an attempt to help peace talks. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressKathleen Kazmier walks off the frozen Swann Memorial Fountain at Logan Circle on Monday in Philadelphia. As a winter storm moved toward the East Coast, the National Weather Service warned it would almost certainly upset holiday travel plans for those hoping to visit loved ones in the mid-Atlantic and Northeast. Associated PressNEW YORK The calls, reporting suspicions of child abuse and neglect, come in at a rate of nearly 10,000 a day, to hotlines and law-enforcement offices across the country. They add up to 3.4 million reports per year a daunting challenge for state child protection agencies, which must sort out the flimsy or trivial claims from the credible and potentially dire ones, and make decisions that balance the rights of parents with the welfare of children. Many states, after initial screening, deem more than half the reports they receive to be unworthy of further investigation. In child protection, you are always walking a difficult line, said Cindy Walcott, deputy commissioner of Vermonts Department for Children and Families. Obviously you want to protect children from harm, but you dont want to intervene in the private life of a family when its not indicated. The issue of child-abuse reporting burst into the spotlight last week with news that Arizonas Child Protective Services failed to look into about 6,000 reports of suspected child maltreatment that had been phoned in to its abuse hotline in recent years. Other states have had problems with their processing of abuse reports. Floridas Department of Children and Families, for example, overhauled its abuse hotline last year after flaws were discovered with how information was collected and relayed to investigators. Of the 3.4 million reports received for the 2011 fiscal year, about 2 million or 60 percent were screened in to trigger some degree of state intervention, according to the latest federal figures. Of those cases, 680,000 ended up being substantiated as incidents of neglect and abuse. Overall, experts say its difficult to assess how good a job the state agencies are doing with their screening of abuse reports in part because variances in laws and practices make precise state-to-state comparisons almost impossible. Stay home and eat turkey Thanksgiving shopping? Not in some states that ban it Associated PressPROVIDENCE, R.I. Shoppers wont be lining up for Thanksgiving Day deals at stores in Rhode Island. They cant. While in other parts of the country retailers will offer holiday deals starting Thursday, most big stores in Rhode Island, Maine and Massachusetts are barred by law from opening on the holiday. Its the legacy of socalled blue laws, which prohibit large supermarkets, big box stores and department stores from opening on Thanksgiving. Some business groups complain its an unnecessary barrier during an era of 24-hour online shopping, and there have been some recent failed legislative attempts to change things. But many shoppers, workers and even retailers say theyre satisfied with the status quo: a one-day reprieve from work and holiday shopping. I shop all year. People need to be with their families on Thanksgiving, said Debra Wall, of Pawtucket, R.I., who will remain quite happily at home Thursday, cooking a meal for 10. The holiday shopping frenzy has crept deeper than ever into Thanksgiving this year. Macys, J.C. Penney and Staples will open on Thanksgiving for the first time. Toys R Us will open at 5 p.m., and Walmart, already open 24 hours in many locations, will start holiday deals at 6 p.m., two hours earlier than last year. In recent years, some retail employees and their supporters have started online petitions to protest stores that open on Thanksgiving but shoppers keep coming. The Retailers Association of Massachusetts has backed legislation, which has so far gone nowhere, to roll back the laws and allow stores to open on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Convenience stores are allowed to open, as are movie theaters, pharmacies, restaurants and some other businesses. The laws do not prohibit stores from opening at nontraditional hours Friday, and some will open at midnight or 1 a.m., when holiday deals will start.

Some states have blue laws that prohibit certain stores from opening on Thanksgiving. Rain and snow snarl holiday travel on East Coast Associated PressNEW YORK Thanksgiving travelers scrambled to book earlier flights Tuesday to avoid a sprawling storm bearing down on the East Coast with a messy mix of snow, rain and wind that threatened to snarl one of the busiest travel days of the year and ground giant balloon versions of Snoopy and SpongeBob SquarePants in the Macys parade. The iconic characters that soar through the Manhattan skyscrapers every year may not lift off Thursday if sustained winds exceed 23 mph and gusts exceed 34 mph, according to city rules enacted after fierce winds in 1997 caused a Cat in the Hat balloon to topple a light pole and seriously injure a woman spectator. Current forecasts call for sustained winds of 20 mph and gusts of 36 mph. Balloons have only been grounded once in the parades 87year history, when bad weather kept them from flying in 1971. Theyre set to be inflated in Manhattan on Wednesday evening. Meanwhile, meteorologists warned that the storm, which has moved across the country, would almost certainly upset holiday travel plans on Wednesday for those hoping to visit loved ones in the midAtlantic and Northeast. The good news is that the storm is supposed to pass through the northeast before Thanksgiving Day, with the weather mostly clearing up by Wednesday evening. Most airlines are hoping the storms wont be too severe, allowing them to continue operating a nearly full schedule with few cancellations, but likely a lot of delays.

He was given a $100,000 raise and a one-year extension after Florida finished 11-2 last season. The offense, though, regressed in 2013. Its made few, if any, strides since Tim Tebows final season in 2009. The Gators ranked 82nd in total offense in 2010, 105th in 2011, 103rd in 2012 and 111th this season. So it cant be all Peases fault, right? Steve Addazio was Floridas offensive coordinator in 2010, and Charlie Weis took over the following year. Neither of them seemed to get the most out of Floridas talent, either. Peases two-year stint has been filled with pitfalls. He had a first-year starting quarterback (Jeff Driskel) in 2012 playing alongside a mediocre offensive line and average receivers. The unit was supposed to be significantly improved in Peases second year. But Driskel broke his right leg in the third game of the season and has missed the rest of the year. Gators football teams coordinator could be on chopping block I understand things. I know youve got to win ....Brent PeaseFlorida offensive coordinator said regarding his fate after the season ends. 2013-14 WrestlingPREVIEW Taylor made TONYCASTRO CorrespondentIts no coincidence that Citrus High Schools two finest grapplers this season seniors Casey Bearden and Brandon Alan Taylor happen to be practice partners. Theres a special bond between the two one that applies universally on the mats. In essence, the only way to get better in the demanding individual sport is to face better competition. That goal begins each day with preparation in the practice room. CHS alumnus and second-year skipper Jeff Wood opened his latest campaign last weekend at the Weeki Wachee Duals II. In the two-day, 15-team event in the Hornets gym, CHS fared relatively well behind a 4-3 mark to place seventh overall. The Inverness crew was paced by, whom else? Bearden at 170 pounds and Taylor at 182. That duo combined to finish 14-0 with six pins. Taylor was born in Gainesville as the middle of three children, including two sisters to his mother Jennifer Sykes. The Taylors have called Inverness home for nearly eight years. The 5-foot-8, 168-pound Taylor is a bit undersized to compete at 182. Coach Wood eventually forecasts Taylor to shift down to 160 pounds. Taylor, 17, originally played nose guard during his eighth-grade season at Inverness Middle School. But upon matriculating to CHS, he couldnt maintain his grades and was ruled academically ineligible. On the behest of some friends prior to his sophomore year, he decided to return to athletics and try his hand in wrestling. Since joining the team, his life has literally changed course. Hes not an honor roll student, but he is no longer on the bubble of not earning his high school diploma. I live to be active, replied Taylor, on what drove him to the mats. Wrestling turned out to be a perfect fit. On the mats, you cant blame someone else for not getting the job done its all on you. After rolling through his seven opponents at Weeki Wachee, Taylor wasnt beating his chest with excitement. My cardio was alright, but Ive got to work harder in the room to get more gas in the tank for the third period and overtime, Taylor said. This was just the first tournament of a long season. It was really more all about finding out where I was at and looking at what I needed to work on. Taylor has raised the bar on his expectations. After reaching the 49thannual FHSAA Finals at 182, he hungers to go deeper into the brackets. My goal is like everybody else and earn a state title, Taylor stressed. My other goal is go as long as I can without losing a match. Id love to go unbeaten. Last winter at the Jenkins Arena against the states best, Taylor finished 2-1. He opened up by edging Fort Myers Addias Corgelas (3-2) before dropping back-toback matches to eventual state champion 2013 state qualifier hopes to return to sports elite stage next February STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleCitrus senior wrestler Brandon Taylor has his eyes on a return to the FHSAA wrestling state tournament in February after making a trip to Lakeland for the event last season. I live to be active. Wrestling turned out to be a perfect fit.Brandon TaylorCitrus High School senior said of his affinity for the sport. See TAYLOR/ Page B3 All eyes on February TONYCASTRO CorrespondentWith curtains raised on a new wrestling season, district realignment has reshaped the local landscape. Both Citrus and Lecanto have been reassigned for the next two seasons to the six-team, District 2A-5 field featuring 27-time district champion Spring HillSpringstead, Belleview, OcalaVanguard and Ocala-Lake Weir. The first leg of the state series is set for the district tournament at Springstead on Feb. 1. The Eagles are the three-time defending 2A state champions. Crystal River has been lumped into the nine-team District 1A-5 which features 2013 state runnerup Green Cove Springs-Clay, Dunnellon, Gainesville-Eastside, Interlachen, Citra-North Marion, Palatka, Ocala-Trinity Catholic and The Villages. The 1A-5 tourney is set for Feb. 1 at The Villages. Heres a snapshot of each local team.Pirates battle for top spot in 1A-5Crystal Rivers wrestling program, led by veteran mentor Craig Frederick, is expected to tussle against the mighty Blue Devils of Clay High after finishing 20that states last winter. Clay captured the 2004 1A state crown and has finished as state runners-up four times under Jim Reape. CRHS was expecting to compete against Clay until school began. Since then, two expected senior state qualifiers from last winter did not return: Dylan Ayala and Brandon Martin. Ayala (35-4 won-lost record) placed fourth last winter at Jenkins Arena in Lakeland in Class 1A at 152. Martin finished 21-7 featuring 21 pins at 285. Another key loss was senior Jose Aday at 138, who also opted not to return to the team. 2013 state qualifier, Geo Valadraros at 220, will also be missed. He graduated following a fine 16-8 campaign, featuring 13 pins. CRHS does return two state qualifiers from the 49thFHSAA State Finals in Polk County: seniors Andrew Bilby and Michael Allen. Allen finished 28-9 with 11 pins compared to Bilbys 26-12 slate featuring 16 pins. The good news is the Pirates do return four more lettermen including seniors Jeremy Burcroff, Nick Hooper and Carlos Sanabria, along with sophomore Eddie Bennis who are all returning starters. Hooper was a 2012 state qualifier. In addition, junior Joel Pelton, a regional qualifier from Lecanto, has transferred to CRHS. The remainder of the team is made up of first-year varsity mat men. Weve got a lot of work to do, explained Coach Frederick, despite his teams fine 7-1 start. I saw a lot of little things were not doing. We didnt lose many matches, but we gave a few away. Im fortunate that most of the kids have wrestled here for a See WRESTLING/ Page B3

Eric van den HoogenON TENNIS USTA champion crowned recently Making strides LPGAs Koreans make statement with golf, English Associated PressNAPLES This kind of conversation was rare five years ago on the LPGA Tour. For starters, it involved Vin Scully. So Yeon Ryu was chatting on the putting green when the topic of her name came up. The LPGA makes sure everyone pronounces it correctly as Yoo. So why is it that Scully referred to rookie left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu as REE-yoo? Oh, the Dodgers pitcher? Hes a really good guy, she said. Maybe that can be a nickname for him. Any relation? No, she replied with a laugh. Ryu is a pretty common name in Korea. But were good friends. So youre a baseball fan? Oh, yeah. I love the Dodgers, she said. Na Yeon Choi, a U.S. Womens Open champion who describes herself as shy, cant stop talking in English, of course about how far she has come in six years on the LPGA. She recalls her rookie season when she could speak only enough English to order McDonalds. When I traveled with my parents, we couldnt go to any restaurants by ourselves. We had to go with somebody, she said. There are so many questions. One day we went to an American restaurant and just pointed at the food. Even then they were like, You want appetizer first, or soup? It was a very hard time. Choi spent a year traveling with Greg Morrison, a Canadian tutor living in Seoul, practicing English an hour a day without fail. She is comfortable enough now that she made a studio appearance last year on Golf Channels Morning Drive. And when her parents are in town? I can go wherever I want, she said with a smile. Any more, its hard to find a South Korean who doesnt speak English with great proficiency in pro-ams, in interviews, speeches, even with other players. That so-called problem of the LPGA Tour being taken over by South Koreans sure doesnt seem like one anymore. In sports, your reputation today is a threeto five-year lag of what was reality back then, Commissioner Mike Whan said. I think thats our case. I hear it all the time. Nobody speaks the language. They dont talk to anybody. They keep their head down. Thats 100 percent not true. I hope our reputation in three years is our reputation from today. Because our reputation today is pretty damn good. Whan said he couldnt walk onto the practice range without seeing half-dozen translators when he started in 2010. Now thats rare. Se Ri Pak, the pioneer of womens golf in South Korea, tried to speak English from her rookie season (crowd make big loud) and eventually was good enough. As more South Koreans began to arrive on tour, Pak urged them to learn English for their own sake. The more comfortable they were in a new culture, the better they would perform. For years, though, translators became a crutch. Thats changing. Everybody is trying so hard to speak English better, Inbee Park said. They know thats the problem weve had out there. Getting used to the tour, the language has been the most important thing. This younger generation of Korean girls is trying to learn English before coming here. Park moved to America in the sixth grade, first to Florida and then to Las Vegas. Even so, it hasnt always been easy. She faced enormous scrutiny this year after winning three straight majors, and while Park handled every interview magnificently, she revealed Friday during an awards banquet how hard it really was. There were days when the thought of addressing the media overwhelmed me, she said. Imagine yourself in China, standing before a crowd full of Chinese people who are staring at you, and you had to make a speech in Chinese. Thats how I felt. Associated PressIn this Oct. 5 file photo, South Koreas Inbee Park watches as Chinas Lin Xiyu, left, shakes hands with South Koreas Na Yeon Choi after they finished the 18th green during the third round of the Reignwood LPGA Classic golf tournament at Pine Valley Golf Club on the outskirts of Beijing, China. Its hard to find a South Korean who doesnt speak English with great proficiency in pro-ams, in interviews, speeches, even with other players. That so-called problem of the LPGA Tour being taken over by South Koreans sure doesn't seem like one anymore.

On forecasting this latest Pirate mat squad, I thought we could compete for districts and a regional runner-up until we lost those three starters from last year, lamented Frederick. At this point, were not afraid of going against Clay. We want to go head-tohead against the best. Frederick has one nagging concern, Whether or not our kids can compete against the best kids. We did OK at Weeki Wachee even without Bilby. He went unbeaten in his first three matches before he got hurt. On Saturday, we were shuffling the lineup without him. As far as the county picture, the Pirates will battle Lecanto twice and are expected to meet Citrus in the Belleview Duals on Dec. 13-14. Right now, Id say were on top (of the county), noted Frederick. Our kids are waiting for a chance to wrestle Citrus. Before then, we still have to fill a couple spots.Nine Canes back in the foldCitrus High School returns nine lettermen from last years squad that finished 57thout of 87 teams in the 49thClass 2A State Finals in Lakeland. CHS nine returning lettermen include: Christopher Keene, Willie Wallen, Tarique Cabanas, Casey Bearden, Brandon Taylor, Brad Wiesenauer, Johnathan Loggins, Austin Renaud and Victor Segarra. Eight are returning starters all but Segarra. Bearden and Taylor are the main headliners both are returning state qualifiers. Though neither placed in their first trip to states, Bearden finished 35-9 with 15 pins while Taylor finished 32-15 behind 22 pins. CHS also opened its season at the WWHS Duals II placing seventh out of 15 teams behind a 4-3 mark. The lone issue was an injury to sophomore David Myrick. According to secondyear skipper Jeff Wood, Myrick landed awkwardly on his wrist during his first match. Though it was bothering him, he competed the both days of competition before learning the severity of the injury. The Hurricanes were paced by Bearden at 170 pounds and Taylor at 182, who combined to go 14-0 with six pins. Sophomore transfer Justin Allan, from CRHS, finished 6-1 with three pins at 160. Coach Wood has been pleased with his current teams work ethic. Were young overall, he said. But these kids work very hard in the room. We lost a couple matches by 11 points, which means a win here or there and we might have reached the finals. At this point, my greatest concern is we have more underclassmen than upper classmen. On crystal balling the county scene, Realistically on paper were behind Crystal River, detailed Coach Wood. They finished ahead of us at Weeki Wachee. Theyre more seasoned. Theyve got eight seniors, we have four. But weve got more year-round wrestlers than they do. According to Wood, the 2A-5 appears to be a two-horse race with Springstead and Citrus. There are no clear favorites for third. Belleview has a few tough kids, but in that six-team district we really should push all 14 kids through into regionals, he said. Id be surprised if we didnt. After navigating out of districts, both Citrus and Lecanto will face the huge challenge of surviving Class 2A, Region II, aka The Region of Doom at Brandon. 2A-II could feature the states top four teams in one regional with Brandon attempting to extend its streak of 13 straight titles along with defending 3-time 2A champ Springstead, 3-time 2A state runner-up Lakeland-Lake Gibson and perhaps the finest Tampa-Jesuit team in its history. If you place in our region, you should definitely place at states, pointed out Coach Wood. Its a loaded regional, but I think we could push 4 to 5 kids to states.Lecanto: Retooling modeThis past week, sixth-year Lecanto High mentor Scot Roberts learned his finest grappler from a year ago, senior Jonah Nightengale, opted to concentrate on his grades and not return to the mats. Well miss him, lamented Coach Roberts. Hes a great kid. Its not just the wins or the medals he produces. In practice, he was the guy pushing the team; he was the one who made everyone around him better. Nightengale finished 19-8 for the Panthers and placed sixth at 2A states at 195 pounds. Despite the loss of the talented Nightengale, the Panthers return a county-best 14 lettermen from last season including: Austin Hartman, Dillan Snyder, Jacob and Nicolai Kortendick, Sanjay Chakkoli, Bryce Hickey, DAndre Horton (who will split time with the basketball team), James Schwartz, Dalton Burdette, Chris Ewing, Derrick Steele, Dalton Collins Gregorio Lumapas and Hector Arroyo-Rodriguez. The eight returning starters feature: Hartman, Snyder, Hickey, Horton, Ewing, Steele, Lumapas and Arroyo-Rodriguez. LHS opened its season last weekend at Weeki Wachee and finished 13thoverall following a 2-6 run. The Panthers 17-man lineup captured 37-of-84 bouts (44 percent), featuring 20 pins. Ewing a senior at 182, led the way with a 7-1 mark highlighted by a team-high and county-best five pins. Hartman, Hickey and Horton each finished .500 at 4-4. We didnt have a full lineup, identified coach Roberts, in evaluating the teams performance. Our conditioning level wasnt there yet. We treated Weeki Wachee like a preseason tournament. When Roberts looks across his wrestling room, I like how much these guys love to be there, he said. Right now, were really not drilling correctly. Our guys arent giving enough resistance. And weve got to do a better job in warm-ups. Corey Van Dorn from Orange Park (5-1) and Paces William Diamond (7-1). The biggest lessons I learned from states was you cant let the pressure get to you, said Taylor, who finished 33-17 with 22 pins. When you get there, you have to get in the zone and keep your mind straight. Taylor believes hes improved on his feet. I used to not shoot at all, he said. Id pretty much just stay in front and use a headlock. Now, Im starting to open up my offense and shoot more. I know I have to do a better job of shooting and moving faster. One would think reaching states would be the pinnacle of his prep career its not. My highlight came at Avon Park, Taylor recalled. We were down 35 points with six matches to go. We won five in a row on pins and then it was my turn. I went out there and pinned my guy to win the match by one point. The whole team was hyped up that was fun. Taylor returns to mats this Saturday at the Ocala-Forest Invitational. To help prepare, he rolls against perhaps the Canes finest wrestler, Bearden. Let me tell you its definitely a grind going against Casey every day in practice, Taylor said. Hes pretty tough. Hes strong; hes fast and has great footwork everything Im working on to get better. After this year, Taylor would love to go to college but is undecided on a major. He said, Ive got to get my GPA (2.0) up. Looking forward, he said, Id like for the team to pull out some firstplace finishes and I want to go out with a bang as a senior. Taylor is quick to credit coach Wood and Bearden for his new-found success. Coach Wood has worked with me since I got here, I owe him a lot, Taylor said. And Ive wrestled with Casey almost every day since I joined up. Hes definitely the reason Ive improved and hes the guy whos made me a tougher wrestler.

The letter, dated Tuesday and sent to Pelinis home address by FAU Interim President Dennis Crudele, does not cite drug use as a reason for the firing. Pelini resigned Oct. 30 after FAU athletic director Patrick Chun said he and former defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis acknowledged using illegal drugs. Pelini denied that claim, though a member of his FAU staff assisted the schools investigation by writing an affidavit claiming to have personally witnessed him using marijuana and cocaine.Judge rejects O.J. Simpsons bid for new trialLAS VEGAS A judge in Las Vegas has rejected O.J. Simpsons bid for a new trial. The decision Tuesday means the former football star must remain in a Nevada state prison where he is serving nine to 33 years for armed robbery and kidnapping in a bungled attempt to retrieve personal items from two sports memorabilia dealers in 2007. Simpson was sentenced to prison in 2008. Hell be 70 years old before he is eligible for parole. Simpsons current defense attorneys argued that his previous lawyers handled his case so badly that he should get a new trial. From staff, wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

EDUCATIONSection CWEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE HOMOSASSA He cleans undesirable messes, waxes floors and scrubs toilets. However, Homosassa Elementary School head custodian Dave Mr. Dave/Chico Vientos said the hugs, smiles and laughter that he receives in return makes his responsibilities worth it. I love making a difference and the interaction with the children, he said. Its a lot of joy coming to work. When you enjoy work nothing bothers you. Arriving at 6 a.m. every day, Vientos prepares the media center and cafeteria for the days activities before his two other employees arrive. My tag says Head Custodian but I always cover up the Head part and say that I am still a Custodian and not afraid to get dirty, he said. Having that respect builds the character with the guys. Respect comes not only from his guys, but also from the students. Many of times children come to school looking for the attention that they dont get at home, Vientos said. Its a joy at the end of the day when you make a child smile. He considers a childs needs his own responsibility. We get to see some of the conditions that the children live in, Vientos said. You can just tell who is hungry. A lot of the staff and I try to encourage a little extra for those students. After breakfast, students hustle off to their classrooms leaving Vientos behind to tidy the cafeteria. Quickly, he leaves the eatery to the same perfection that it started and then hes off to various other tasks he heads. He is such a dedicated employee, said Principal Christopher Bosse. He gets the picture of how he can contribute to make a positive experience for our students. The building looks fabulous as he goes above and beyond. He connects with the students and staff. During the school year, Vientos said the majority of his daily responsibilities include maintaining the school building. We work during the summer, he explained. When the children are not here it is a full-blown, heavy-detailed, thorough cleaning. We do everything from top of the room to the bottom. Once the classroom is completely cleaned we close the door and lock it. To me it is all about working smarter not harder, Vientos continued. I tried to make it as easy as I can for the guys. I dont know what is going to happen the next day. So I try to get the most out of my day and remain positive. There is no request that Vientos and his colleagues will not work to fulfill. I tell my guys that 90 to 95 percent of the stuff that happens here falls into our lap, he said. It may not always be part of our job duty, but we all wear many hats at times. On the bottom of our job description in bold letters it says, all things that deem necessary. Wearing many hats, Vientos also teaches a class to other custodians. We have nine books we teach, which instructs basic training on custodian work, Vientos said. Its a volunteer program that teaches custodians what to do instead of just handing them the keys and saying, Here you go. By 2 p.m. his day is complete, but some days he finds himself leaving later than expected because he enjoys his job. If I hit the lotto, I would still come back to work, Vientos joked. ERYN WORTHINGTON/ ChronicleDave Vientos is a Homosassa Elementary School custodian who loves to interact with the children while he goes about his daily duties. He says his profession is enjoyable.

ThanksgivingNative American Foods Whats on your familys menu for Thanksgiving? You may be eating the traditional turkey dinner, or your family may have created its own food traditions. Will your meal include beans, corn or squash? These three foods were important to almost every tribe of Native Americans. They became known as the three sisters. This week, as The Mini Page prepares for Thanksgiving, we get a taste of what early Native Americans ate, and a look at what the first Thanksgiving was really like.Polyculture Unlike modern farmers, early Native Americans often planted different types of crops in the same field. (Polyculture means growing many types of plants.) Rather than plowing in rows, they would plant seeds in mounds. Many times, they planted corn, beans and squash together. The tall corn acted as a pole for climbing bean plants; beans fertilized the corn, and the squash leaves cooled and shaded their roots. The name three sisters was first used by the Haudenosaunee (ho-DEEno-SHO-nee), or Iroquois, also known as the people of the longhouse. They lived in what is now New York state. Respect for food Native Americans have a great respect for the plants and animals that support them. Some call plants the hair of Mother Earth. Whether they grew the food themselves or hunted animals to eat, early native people were careful not to waste any part of the food. For example, corn husks were used to make shoes, bags and dolls for children. Bison that were hunted for meat also provided skins for clothing, blankets and shelter, along with bones for tools and ceremonial objects. Cultural uses Food is also important to the culture in native communities. Before harvesting plants, people say prayers and make offerings to the Earth. Among the Hidatsa people, for example, a young native man hoping to find a wife might have helped a neighboring family with corn husking so that he could spend some time getting to know the daughter. Items made from food were used in dances, songs and ceremonies. The Wampanoag Indians lived in the area where the Mayflower landed in 1620. Tisquantum, or Squanto, pictured above, helped teach the Pilgrims how to grow corn using fish as fertilizer. Squanto had learned English while enslaved in Europe and during travels in England. Wampanoag means people of the first light because they were first to see the sunrise. The Wampanoag were hunters and fishermen. They also grew squash, beans, pumpkins, watermelon and sunflowers. photo courtesy Smithsonian Institution Museum of the American Indian Words that remind us of Native American foods are hidden in the block below.

On the Web: At the library: Keoke and Kay Marie Porterfield from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickThe Three SistersSquash Do you eat squash? There are many different types of this vegetable. Summer squash such as zucchini have thin skins and were eaten as they ripened. Winter squash has a tougher outer skin and can be stored for long periods of time. Squash provides a lot of vitamins and minerals that corn and beans do not have.Other foods Along with the three sisters, native people might have grown other crops. They also hunted wild birds and bison; those who lived near water fished; and they gathered wild fruits, vegetables, and nuts and berries. These foods rounded out their diets. Corn Native Americans were the first people to domesticate corn, or grow it for food. This crop became so important because it has a very high yield you get a lot out of each seed. For instance, each ear of corn has 300 to 500 kernels, or seeds, and each corn plant has one or more ears. However, Native Americans had to adapt, or change, the way they grew corn for different environments. In fact, in Illinois about 800 years ago, a community of native people near Cahokia successfully grew corn and harvested trees to build homes and other structures. But experts think erosion* destroyed the crop, and the people may have hunted too much. The native people eventually left their community.* Erosion is the process of wind or water wearing away the layers of soil.Corn colors Different types of corn are known by their colors. Native communities might grow seven or more varieties of corn for different uses. Some kinds are used to make bread or other foods for special ceremonies.Beans Are there beans on your dinner table? Beans have a lot of protein. Corn has a lot of calories. Together they were part of a balanced diet for early native people. Native Americans allowed the beans to dry on the vine, then stored them and ate them later. It was important to early people to grow crops that could keep for times when food was scarce. This type of farming is called subsistence farming. Communities were organized so that every person had a job in growing and storing food.

All Rights Reserved from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickThanksgiving OriginsThe Mini Page StaffBetty Debnam Founding Editor and Editor at Large Lisa Tarry Managing Editor Lucy Lien Associate Editor Wendy Daley A rtist Native challenges In the region that includes what is now Rhode Island and Massachusetts, thousands of Wampanoag people lived in the early 1600s. But between 1616 and 1620, about three-fourths of the Wampanoag people died from diseases brought to the area by European explorers. The smaller community faced danger from an unfriendly neighboring tribe.New arrivals When the Mayflower arrived and Pilgrims founded Plimoth Plantation in December 1620, they didnt have enough supplies to survive the winter. It was too late to plant crops, and they didnt have the tools needed to do so. Helping each other The Wampanoag saw an opportunity to make a trade. They would help the Pilgrims survive, and the Pilgrims would help the natives in case of an attack. One man who knew how to speak English, Tisquantum, taught the Pilgrims to hunt and fish and to plant and raise native crops.Giving thanks Part of Native American culture is giving thanks each time the Earth provides for humans needs. In fact, the Haudenosaunee start each day with a Thanksgiving Address. It expresses thanks for other people, the Earth, the moon, animals, the sun, water, air and more. Experts believe the Harvest Home festival was more of a celebration than a time of giving thanks. The festival may have been combined later with a European religious custom of giving thanks.The Harvest Home By the following fall, 1621, the Pilgrims had a successful harvest. They decided to celebrate with a festival they may have participated in as children in Europe. The Harvest Home lasted for three days. It included feasts of food and drink, competitive sporting events and shooting of muskets, or guns. A letter from Edward Winslow tells: Amongst other recreations, we exercised our arms (firearms) with some 90 (Indians), whom for three days we entertained and feasted. What did they eat? The Europeans killed wild duck, goose and turkey for the feast. The Native Americans provided five deer, which were roasted. The Mini Page thanks Suzanne Davis, education specialist, National Museum of the American Indian, Smithsonian Institution, for help with this issue. Next week, The Mini Page is all about national parks during the wintertime. This painting, titled The First Thanksgiving 1621, is by artist J.L.G. Ferris. Although today we think of this celebration as one meal, the festival lasted three days and included many meals.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER27, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Two unusual books came out this year. First, Bridge Crosswords by Jeff Chen (Master Point Press) is what it sounds like: 52 crosswords with a bridge theme, although most of the clues are not bridge related. The crosswords vary in complexity from easy (Monday New York Times level) to challenging (Thursday NYT difficulty). And you will probably enjoy Bridge Table or Whats Trump Anyway? by Maggy Simony (Booklocker.com). The author is 93 years old and looks primarily at social bridge, but many famous players are mentioned. There is only one deal included see todays diagram. It purportedly cost John Bennett of Kansas City his life on Sept. 29, 1929. He and his wife, Myrtle, had been playing a friendly session against neighbors Myrna and Charles Hoffman. It first appeared in The Bridge World magazine and is surely an invention. After a very light opening bid, an overcall and a thin jump to four spades, West led the diamond ace, then shifted to the club jack. Declarer won in his hand and took the percentage play in trumps, cashing the king and ace. Now he had to go down. Mrs. Bennett, realizing that her husband could have won 10 tricks, made some uncomplimentary comments about his ancestry. Mr. Bennett leant across the table and slapped his wife. She went into the bedroom, came out with the family gun, and killed her husband. However, she walked free from the court because she was charged with murder one, which requires the crime to be premeditated, which this clearly was not. She should have been charged with manslaughter.

Last weekend, my parents attended a party and allowed Cindi to stay overnight. Two people broke into the house to rob it. They tied up and gagged Cindi and then forced me to take them from room to room putting things in a sack. Before leaving, they tied and gagged me, too, leaving both of us face down on the floor. Over the next few hours, we struggled and then tried to talk and even started giggling, but mostly, we just waited for my parents to come home and call the police. Naturally, weve been the stars at school since then, but I discovered that Cindi is telling her own version of what happened. She says I was weepy and panicky. This really upsets me. I dont want Cindi to portray me as a weakling to our friends. We spent five hours on the floor together, but except for a few sobs, I thought we handled it well. So how do I handle Cindi? Bound, Gagged and Furious D ear Bound: Cindi does this because she wants to make herself look good. The fact that she does it at your expense is damaging the friendship, and you should say so and ask her to stop. You also can let your friends know that you remember things a little differently, while holding your head up and not letting it get to you. But mostly, we hope you realize how very fortunate the two of you are to have escaped this robbery unharmed. D ear Annie: A fairly new friend and I just returned from lunch, after which I realized that a rather frequent problem has happened yet again. Ive read your column for years and know that people write to get help dealing with family and friends. This time, the problem is me! When Im with others, I chatter. I tell overly detailed stories. I even strike up conversations with people around me in lines and with store clerks. Its like I must become their friend for the duration. Sometimes before meeting with people, I tell myself that I will make an effort to control my chatter, but when I am having fun, I forget. Do you have any clues for reining myself in? Chatty Cathy D ear Chatty: The fact that you notice your chatter and wish to stop is a good sign, although you may be a little hard on yourself. Try counting to 10 when someone starts speaking. Listen to what they are saying. Imagine that it is a fascinating subject, and try to formulate a question or comment that allows them to expand on the topic. You dont have to do it every time, but even once or twice during a conversation will help you slow down and focus on the other person. D ear Annie: The letter from New York described dumpster diving for food. My husband is an experienced dumpster diver, although he doesnt look for edible items. We live in a small college town. Annie, you would not believe what students throw into dumpsters when they go home for the summer or move into their own apartments. My husband has found brand-new appliances, clothes, and unopened cake mixes, cereal, spices and canned meats. Its astonishing. We have found microwave ovens, computers, video games, patio furniture, linens you name it. We are in a better financial situation now, but I remember those days fondly.
