NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS If you knew Miss Mattie Mae Pipgras, or even if you just met her, youd quickly learn that she was the first Miss Citrus County. She always worked that early into the conversation, which always made me chuckle, said the Rev. Max Wilkins, former pastor of First United Methodist Church in Inverness. She was strikingly beautiful all of her life, but she was not vain or overly proud in the least. I think she was proud of being the first Miss Citrus County because she loved Citrus County and was proud of Inverness as her hometown. Inverness native Mattie Mae Dixon Pipgras died Nov.23. She was 99. The seventh and youngest child born to John James and Emma Georgia Cooper, Miss Mattie Mae, as she was called, was a Citrus High School graduate, also a cheerleader and on staff at the Whirlwind, the schools newspaper. In 1933 at age 19, she was chosen as the first Miss Citrus County. About 20 years ago, they invited all of us old queens of the Miss Citrus County contest, and there she was, recalled Jenny Morelli. I got to stand next to her on the stage, and it was such an honor. When my family moved to Inverness in 1957, Miss Mattie Mae was one of the first people my parents met, and as a child she was my role model. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word to say to everyone. Morelli remembered Miss Mattie Mae as being a sweet, loving, kind woman who especially loved children. My mom had a day care, and Miss Mattie Mae used to come over and visit with all the kids, Morelli said.

Americans dont trust each other anymore. Were not talking about the loss of faith in big institutions such as the government, the church or Wall Street, which fluctuates with events. For four decades, a gut-level ingredient of democracy trust in the other fellow has been quietly draining away. These days, only onethird of Americans say most people can be trusted. Half felt that way in 1972, when the General Social Survey first asked the question. Forty years later, a record high of nearly twothirds say you cant be too careful in dealing with people. An AP-GfK poll conducted last month found that Americans are suspicious of each other in everyday encounters. Less than one-third expressed a lot of trust in clerks who swipe their credit cards, drivers on the road, or people they meet when traveling. Im leery of everybody, said Bart Muraw ski, 27, of Albany, N.Y. Cau tion is always a factor. Does it matter that Americans are suspicious of one another? Yes, say worried political and social scientists. Whats known as social trust brings good things. Expecting news MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleNew father Bob Ernstes kisses the forehead of his newborn daughter, Jayden Audrey Ernstes, on Tuesday afternoon in the Citrus Memorial hospital obstetrics nursery. Grandparents Tina Wilderson, left, and Patty Ernstes look on to the new addition to their families. Citrus Memorial hopes HCA delivers on baby services MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS ACitrus County woman giving birth 50 years ago had to do so in Brooksville, or Ocala or her home. Then a group of community leaders joined together, and in 1957 Citrus Memorial Hospital was born, a place to provide local health care including much-sought-after obstetrics. To Joe Brannen, whose father George was a hospital cofounder, the obstetrics unit has special meaning. For those of us who had family members born before our own hospital, we realize how important it is to have that option, said Brannen, a member of the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation board of directors. My nephews were born here. My grandchildren were born here. Weve got an obstetrics unit were proud of. Today, Citrus Memorial delivers more than 600 babies a year. And hospital backers like Brannen hope that trend continues if and when Hospital Corporation of America takes over sometime next year. Both the foundation and Citrus County Hospital Board are expected to sign a non-binding letter of intent with HCA in midDecember. That is the legal mechanism that begins about four or five months of HCAs due diligence of the hospital, followed by a definitive agreement and, finally, a long-term lease contract. The letter of intent, or LOI, is a framework document that includes expectations on behalf of both HCA and the hospital boards. HCA, in its proposal, offered to keep core services in place for five years. The hospital boards, however, identified three things they want in place for the length of the lease. They are: Citrus Memorial remains an acute-care hospital in Inverness. The hospital keeps its emergency room. The obstetrics department stays in place. The hospital boards transaction consultants, however, have warned that HCA may refuse any request that doesnt fit the companys business model. The obstetrics department, hospital officials acknowledge, is not a money-maker. In fact, its the opposite. Generally, O.B. services in safety net-type hospitals community hospitals, like ours tend to be financially draining, Citrus Memorial Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty said. Beaty said 70 percent of Citrus Memorials obstetrics patients are on Medicaid, where the reimbursement isnt close See EXPECTING/ Page A5 Chronicle fileRefuge Day in Citrus County will be the second Saturday in December.

A society where its easier to compromise or make a deal. Where people are willing to work with those who are different from them for the common good. Where trust appears to promote economic growth. Distrust, on the other hand, seems to encourage corruption. At the least, it diverts energy to counting change, drawing up 100-page legal contracts and building gated communities. Even the rancor and gridlock in politics might stem from the effects of an increasingly distrustful citizenry, said April K. Clark, a Purdue University political scientist and public opinion researcher. Its like the rules of the game, Clark said. When trust is low, the way we react and behave with each other becomes less civil. Theres no easy fix. In fact, some studies suggest its too late for most Americans alive today to become more trusting. That research says the basis for a persons lifetime trust levels is set by his or her midtwenties and unlikely to change, other than in some unifying crucible such as a world war. People do get a little more trusting as they age. But beginning with the baby boomers, each generation has started off adulthood less trusting than those who came before them. The best hope for creating a more trusting nation may be figuring out how to inspire todays youth, perhaps united by their hightech gadgets, to trust the way previous generations did in simpler times. There are still trusters around to set an example. Pennsylvania farmer Dennis Hess is one. He runs an unattended farm stand on the honor system. Customers select their produce, tally their bills and drop the money into a slot, making change from an unlocked cashbox. Both regulars and tourists en route to nearby Lititz, Pa., stop for asparagus in spring, corn in summer and, as the weather turns cold, longneck pumpkins for Thanksgiving pies. When people from New York or New Jersey come up, said Hess, 60, they are amazed that this kind of thing is done anymore. Hess has updated the old ways with technology. He added a video camera a few years back, to help catch people who drive off without paying or raid the cashbox. But he said there isnt enough theft to undermine his trust in human nature. Ill say 99 and a half percent of the people are honest, said Hess, whos operated the produce stand for two decades. Theres no single explanation for Americans loss of trust. The best-known analysis comes from Bowling Alone author Robert Putnams nearly two decades of studying the United States declining social capital, including trust. Putnam contends Americans have abandoned their bowling leagues and Elks lodges to stay home and watch TV. Less socializing and fewer community meetings make people less trustful than the long civic generation that came of age during the Depression and World War II. University of Maryland Professor Eric Uslaner, who studies politics and trust, put the blame elsewhere: economic inequality. Trust has declined as the gap between the nations rich and poor gapes ever wider, Uslaner said, and more and more Americans feel shut out. Theyve lost their sense of a shared fate. Tellingly, trust rises with wealth. People who believe the world is a good place and its going to get better and you can help make it better, they will be trusting, Uslaner said. If you believe its dark and driven by outside forces you cant control, you will be a mistruster. African-Americans consistently have expressed far less faith in most people than the white majority does. Racism, discrimination and a high rate of poverty destroy trust. Nearly 8 in 10 AfricanAmericans, in the 2012 survey conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago with principal funding from the National Science Foundation, felt that you cant be too careful. That figure has held remarkably steady across the 25 GSS surveys since 1972. The decline in the nations overall trust quotient was driven by changing attitudes among whites. Its possible that people today are indeed less deserving of trust than Americans in the past, perhaps because of a decline in moral values. I think people are acting more on their greed, said Murawski, a computer specialist who says he has witnessed scams and ripoffs. Everybody wants a comfortable lifestyle, but what are you going to do for it? Where do you draw the line? Ethical behavior such as lying and cheating are difficult to document over the decades. Its worth noting that the early, most trusting years of the GSS poll coincided with Watergate and the Vietnam War. Trust dropped off in the more stable 1980s. Crime rates fell in the 1990s and 2000s, and still Americans grew less trusting. Many social scientists blame 24-hour news coverage of distant violence for skewing peoples perceptions of crime.A2SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE NATION Some conditions may apply.

BradentonMan charged with shooting at holiday gatheringA Tampa Bay area man was arrested after authorities said he fired a shotgun into a neighbors home during a Thanksgiving gathering. The Manatee County Sheriffs Office reported that 23-year-old Joshua Gennell was charged with two counts of attempted murder and several other charges. He was being held Friday without bail. Gennell had apparently been a guest at the gathering but was asked to leave shortly after midnight Friday because of rude behavior and drinking. Deputies said Gennell went home and returned with a pump-action shotgun, which he fired into the air. No injuries were reported. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Local business lives the United Way Specialty Gems offers 5 percent donation of salesERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerA local nonprofit organization is uniting with local businesses during the holiday season. With Black Friday over and lots of Christmas shopping ahead, the United Way of Citrus County is encouraging residents to shop local and help not only local mom-andpop shops but the United Way. The United Way of Citrus County is a nonprofit organization that collaborates with other local organizations in uniting efforts in fundraising and support by identifying and resolving pressing community issues. Its main focus includes education, income and health. We think it would be a great way to team together, said United Way of Citrus County CEO Amy Meek. It really helps underline how everyone in the community businesses, nonprofits and individuals can all be a part of this social-needs solution. It is a great way for us to all continue working together to drive change together. One business has already stepped up to the challenge. From now through Christmas Eve, Specialty Gems in Crystal River is offering a 5 percent donation of sales back to United Way. Specialty Gems has been amazing with this idea that they came up with to support United Way in a creative way, said United Way of Citrus County CEO Amy Meek. Any type of retail store is going to have some of their biggest sales during the month of December. For them to even consider this, it is wonderful and many of their items are unique and reasonably priced for consumers. Meek and Specialty Gems coowner Carol Kimbrough are challenging other businesses to do the same. Its a circular path. When nonprofits need donations they turn to their community but if the local businesses cannot keep their doors open there wont be donations, Kimbrough said in a press release. We decided this year to promote shopping local while giving back to our community and we challenge other local shops to do the same. A percentage of sales will heighten United Ways source of charitable donations. Its a big boost in our annual campaign and giving, Meek said. We are really excited about how we are going to be able to use these funds for more positive things in the community. Any other business that would be interested in participating would be so welcomed. We would love the opportunity to partner with the local businesses and highlight their charitable giving and philanthropy through this method. Instead of traveling to out-ofcounty stores, shop locally. We hope other businesses will do the same by encouraging shopping right here in Citrus County and commit to helping our neighbors with a donation to United Way for every sale, said Specialty Gems co-owner Ed Wilsek. For more information on how to donate to United Way, call 352795-LIVE (5483). Amy MeekCEO of United Way of Citrus County.

A New Jersey canine that was crowned the worlds ugliest dog in 2007 and later became the topic of a childrens book preaching acceptance has died. Elwood was 8. His owner, Karen Quigley, said the Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix died unexpectedly Thanksgiving morning. The Sewell resident said Elwood had been dealing with some heath issues in recent months but appeared to be doing well. Elwood was dark colored and hairless save for a puff of white fur resembling a Mohawk on his head. He was often referred to by fans as Yoda, or E.T., for his resemblance to those famous science-fiction characters. Elwood won his crown at the annual ugly dog contest at the Marin-Sonoma County Fair in California a year after he had finished second.US rappers say they filmed music video in NKoreaBEIJING Two aspiring American rappers said they have filmed a music video during a five-day visit to North Korea. The rappers known as Pacman and Peso did not say where and how they filmed the video. Their fundraising proposal suggested the video would be shot on a karaoke party bus in Pyongyang. They raised more than $10,000 on the crowdsourcing site Kickstarter to fund their trip. The Washington-area residents, whose real names are Anthony Bobb and Dontray Ennis, spoke to reporters after arriving in Beijing on Saturday. They said the unusual move could jumpstart their music careers. They hope to release the video next month. North Korea has detained at least six Americans in recent years, including an elderly tourist last month.Online petition: stop Jackson bloodless bullfightJACKSON, Miss. The man behind two new events celebrating Jacksons Hispanic population has brought controversy with the third. An online petition to cancel the Mississippi Bullfighting Exhibition scheduled Dec. 7 had nearly 7,900 signatures by midday Saturday. A California company that stages such events said bulls have Velcro pads over their shoulders and matadors throw Velcro-topped banderillas. Jackson promoter Peter Castorena tells The ClarionLedger its more humane than a rodeo bulls wont even be roped. Petition creator Kimberly Spiegel of Oxford said it perpetuates what she calls a cultural practice that is inherently inhumane and exploitative and causes unnecessary fear and suffering for the bulls. Castorenas earlier events were a Cinco de Mayo festival and a Hispanic rodeo.

always been a grandmother to me, and I always adored her. Mark Stoltz met Miss Mattie Mae when he was 15 and working in the kitchen at Inverness Golf & Country Club where his father was the chef. I happened to overhear someone talking about Miss Mattie Maes husband, George Pipgras, who was a pitcher for the Yankees back in the Babe Ruth days, Stoltz said. Miss Mattie Mae found out I was a big baseball fan and she came into the kitchen while I was washing dishes, and she started talking to me and asked if Id like to meet her husband. I was in awe, Stoltz said. I went out and the three of us sat there, and hes telling me stories and Id look over at her and shed wink at me and smile. When Mr. Pip got up to go to the bathroom, she put her hand on my arm and said, Master Mark thats what she called me I havent seen a twinkle in Georges eyes in a long time. Ill never forget that. She made me feel so important, that she took time out of her life to make friends with me. In Mattie Maes online obituary guestbook, Brenda Vanover referred to Mattie Mae as Aunt Ducky, and wrote that she was the kindest, most good-hearted woman that you would ever meet. She was the type of person that would always make you smile even though you were about to cry. I know when I was little I always looked up to her from just needing someone to talk to or just a shoulder to cry on. I knew I could always count on her. I will miss her very much. In 2005, Mattie Mae told the Chronicleabout life in Inverness back in the day, about roller skating with her friends around the Historic Courthouse and going to dances at the former Crown Hotel. She lived in a two-bedroom house on Trout Avenue for 50 years. She was a Cub Scout den mother, Inverness Womans Club officer, a sponsor of the Little Womans Club and the Inverness Junior Womans Club. She served in the PTA, was a charter member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and a former member of the Inverness Golf and Country Club. In 1972, Mattie Mae retired from the B&W Rexall Drug Store pharmacy department. She outlived two husbands Nulin Dixon and George Pipgras. She was quite possibly the member of First United Methodist Church in Inverness with the longest tenure a member for more than 90 years. She loved Inverness and never forgot it, even in the latter years when she moved to Jacksonville to be closer to her son. Mostly, Miss Mattie Mae was herself, a genteel Southern lady whose greatest ambition was to make people feel loved and welcomed and important. Max Wilkins called her beautiful both inside and out. She affected my life, Mark Stoltz said. She was the most charming, wonderful woman. She had class. Everybody who knew her was touched by her. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicleonline.com. to the private insurance companies. Thats a big number, he said. Foundation chairwoman Sandy Chadwick said one concern she had in choosing HCA over nonprofit Tampa General Hospital was the bottom line of a forprofit company. I think people would want to continue to have obstetrics in this county, she said. If its judged strictly on whether you make money on it, then there you go. If HCA decides to eliminate obstetrics, that wouldnt necessarily force Citrus County women to give birth in Brooksville or Ocala. Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, owned by Health Management Associates, has a Womens Health Center that delivers about 300 babies a year, spokeswoman Dorothy Pernu said. Chadwick said she could understand why HCA would balk at being told ahead of time what it can or cannot do in a longterm lease. I have to admit, you cant lease the hospital and then micromanage how theyre going to run it, she said. Hospital officials should know HCAs view on the obstetrics request in the coming weeks when the company responds to the proposed LOI. Brannen said he hopes HCA sees the significance of the obstetrics unit in the community. You think of your hospital having that ability to take care of local residents in that fashion, he said. From my standpoint, its very important.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 A5 000GSSE See your independent Trane dealer for complete program eligibility, dates, details and restrictions.

JIMWAYMER Florida TodayROCKLEDGE At the Indian River Isles subdivision south of Rockledge, so much muck coats the canal bottom that homeowners who pay a premium for lagoon access often run amok with frustration when they try to launch their boats. Most of the year, none of them get out of here, said Doug Murphy, president of one of the subdivisions property owners associations. His community is among many countywide with old canals clogged by black, viscous gunk. An estimated 5million to 7million cubic yards of muck blankets the lagoon bottom in Brevard County alone, the legacy of more than a half-century of runoff and erosion. The muck is mostly soil from construction sites, farms and homes along the lagoons tributaries. But grass clippings, algae and other plants also contribute, as do past decades of fertilizer and sewage entering the lagoon. Those nutrients feed too much plant growth, and when the excess algae and other plants die, they settle out along the lagoon bottom as noxious muck. The muck also carries metals from cars, power plants, paints and electronics into the estuary. Those cling to clays from sod and construction sites, flow into stormwater, then ooze into the estuary. And the problem goes well beyond just a navigational hazard. Brevards 160miles of finger canals and other channels along the lagoon are the estuarys last line of defense before seagrasssmothering muck reaches the lagoon at large. So homeowners in Indian River Isles and elsewhere say local and state government ought to help dredge their private canals and the lagoon tributaries that flow by their back yards. We just want them to pay for what they dump into it, Murphy said. He and his neighbors blame the state and county for not properly maintaining nearby stormwater ditches and pipes, which carry dirt, rotting plants and polluted runoff into their canal. Muck suspends easily in the water, clouding it up and limiting the growth of seagrass, the staple food of manatees and the most important habitat for fish and other lagoon life. It also contributes to bacterial decay, which consumes oxygen from the bottom sediment and water, potentially causing fish kills Canals first became popular here during the housing boom in the early days of the Space Age as developers used dredge-and-fill techniques to essentially create additional waterfront property on which to build homes. Now, more than a halfcentury of muck has built up in the lagoon and its tributaries, more than 10 feet thick in some places. In some spots, like the Eau Gallie River, the dirt, sand and mud foil even pontoon boats, which draw only inches of water. Biologists say the muck must go. But dredging up enough of the stuff to benefit lagoon water quality would be expensive, and funding is elusive. Officials from six lagoon-side counties recently asked the state for a combined $120million for muck dredging and other lagoon restoration projects, but its uncertain which will get funded. Much of the recent political drive surrounding the lagoon has focused on funding large-scale projects to lessen the fertilizerladen water releases from Lake Okeechobee. Brevard and the cities within the county must maintain 160miles of canals and channels, not including the more than 70miles of the Intracoastal Waterway, the main channel that cuts through the center of the lagoon. Maintaining the ICW falls to the Florida Inland Navigation District, which focuses on projects that benefit boating. Our mission is to keep the navigability, said Mark Crosley, FINDs executive director. At this point, were not looking to do dredging for environmental reasons, Crosley added. The water quality benefits are a secondary benefit to us. The ICW serves as a muck sump of sorts the lowest point where fine material winds up. But with scant federal funds to help, dredging more of the ICW through Brevard anytime soon would be a pipe dream, officials say. We dont have a dredging project right now in the five-year window for Brevard County, Crosley said. FIND estimates maintenance dredging of the ICW will cost $12 million to $16 million annually during the next 50 years, with half of the costs expected to be borne by property owners within the district. Much of the muck originates from yards. Sod is a significant source, especially from the barrier island side, said John Trefry, a Florida Tech geochemist whos studied the lagoons muck deposits. In the 1990s, he estimated muck covered about 10 percent of the lagoon bottom. But after three hurricanes in 2004, the muck coverage may have doubled as storms stirred up muck that had gathered in canals. That really changed the dynamic. Now, its been spread around so much, its really like a malignancy, if you will, Trefry said. He said dredging the close-to-shore muck hot spots in areas where past harmful algae blooms have ruined seagrass might yield more environmental benefit than dredging the ICW. Lacking local funds, Brevard and other lagoon counties are looking to the state. Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. The Friends group will unveil a new pavilion they built on the property. This year, there is going to be a lot going on, said Ivan Vicente, USFWS spokesman. We have a mermaid show and there will be a performance by Ibex Puppetry. Ibex is the company run by the daughter of Jim Henson. The late Jim Henson was the creator of the world-famous Muppets. According to a blog associated with Ibex, Heather Henson uses full-sensory storytelling in order to offer audiences a transformative experience. Other events include an endangered species parade, live music all day, more than 20 educational booths and a barbecue lunch will be available for purchase. People are encouraged to make their own puppets and join the parade. There also will be instruments available from around the world to improvise and play music. The Refuge Day event was initially set for Oct.17, but the federal government shutdown forced its cancellation. Organizers usually slate refuge days once a month during the peak of tourist season at Three Sisters. The season runs from November to March when manatees are abundant in the relatively warm waters of the springs. Vicente said shuttles will be available from Kings Bay Plaza on U.S. 19 to the main springs area. It should be a lot of fun for individuals or families, Vicente said.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

LOISM. COLLINS Deseret News While most Americans believe that in some circumstances patients should be allowed to die, the minority who believe doctors should always do everything possible to keep someone alive has more than doubled since 1990, said a new survey from the Pew Research Center. Two-thirds of those asked about end-of-life care for others said a patient should be allowed to die in certain cases; 31percent said there are no such circumstances. In 1990, 15percent said doctors and other health professionals should always do everything possible to save a patient. In 2005, that number was 22percent. Thats almost a doubling in the share of adults who say medical staff should always do what they can, said Cary Funk, senior researcher at Pew. The change is two-pronged, she added, with fewer people taking the view intervening may not always be a good idea, along with more people who express an opinion at all. In earlier surveys, the percentage with no opinion or not responding was higher.A different endOne of the things families havent gotten their heads around is the change in how people are arriving at the end of their lives, said Dr. Joanne Lynn, director of the Altarum institute in Washington, D.C., and who was not involved in Pews survey. That may contribute to the shift in views. For much of the past, people came to the end of their lives somewhat predictably. Barring an accident, theyd know they had a terminal illness and move into the category labeled dying. Once in that category, there were things that should be done, she said. Its less clear now. People instead come down with multiple problems over an extended period of time and are still often pretty stable until a couple of weeks before they die, she said. Weve never put together a care system, a Social Security system, a financing system around that reality, but its there. That change may have changed how people view end-of-life issues. There are so many things you can keep doing and sometimes they work. They work enough. Until a little something comes along that is big enough to topple those reserves, Lynn said. The Pew survey of roughly 2,000 adults, conducted in March and April, also found Americans are closely divided on physician-assisted suicide, with 47percent approving laws that would allow it, compared to 49percent opposed. That has changed little from 2005. The percentage that believe a person in great pain with no hope of improvement has a right to take his own life rose to 62percent from 1990s 55 percent. Most of those surveyed noted circumstances in which they would want to halt their own treatment and be allowed to die: 57percent if they were in a lot of pain and 52 percent if they had an incurable disease and depended entirely on someone else for care. On the other hand, just over a third said they would tell their doctors to do everything possible to keep them alive, even in dire circumstances, such as having a disease with no hope of improvement andNATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 A7 CUSTOM FRAMING & ART GALLERY Est. 1992 Est. 1992 1681 US Hwy. 19 Crystal River 352-795-5131 For Her For Him 000GJTN Original art Museum framing Basic matting Poster framing Photo & portrait framing 2013 2013 2013 2013 000GR0O Enjoy $25 off a 50 minute Elemental Massage Or a Botanical Skin Resurfacing Facial.

experiencing a great deal of pain, the report said. Thats up from 28percent in 1990. Young adults in particular thought medical professionals should always do everything possible to save the life, said Funk. She was also interested to find that nearly half of those surveyed had had to think about some of the issues at least indirectly and sometimes very directly. Forty-seven percent said that through a close friend or in their family they had experienced the issues of someone in a coma or who had a terminal illness. Its not abstract as theyre thinking about this kind of situation, Funk said.Race and religionStrong differences showed up by both religion and ethnicity, Funk said. The patterns vary a little bit depending on the concept, which will surprise some people. Blacks and Hispanics more than whites were more apt to say they want a doctor to do everything possible for them. Most white Protestants, whether mainline or evangelical, and most white Catholic said if they could not be cured and were suffering great pain, theyd stop treatment. Black Protestants and Hispanic Catholics said even in those circumstances theyd ask the doctor to do everything possible to save them. There were racial and ethnic differences within religions, too, said Funk, who noted striking differences among Catholics. You can separate white non-Hispanic Catholics from Hispanic Catholics and see sharp differences. ... The majority of Hispanics say do everything possible. Religious division was also found on the topic of suicide, with about half of white evangelic Protestants and black Protestants disagreeing that a person has a moral right to suicide in the various circumstance on which they were surveyed. Those without religious affiliation, and whites who were either mainline Protestants or Catholics were more likely to find a moral right to commit suicide. The racial and ethnic divisions were similar for physician-assisted suicide.Ready or notFamilies face a myriad of issues when someone they love is dying, said John Mastro john, senior vice president of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, based in Alexandria, Va. In hospice, families are always facing impending loss and they know that loss is coming. They are dealing with the impending loss and other emotional issues around that, as well as financial issues for some. Most Americans 65 and older surveyed said theyd given at least some thought to what kind of treatment theyd hope for in different circumstances at the end of their lives. Even so, 27percent said they had not given any thought to how medical professionals should care for them at the end of their lives. Of those 75 and older, 22percent said nothing was written down and they had not talked to loved ones about their wishes. Of those older seniors who described their own health as just fair or poor, 30percent had not had such a conversation or prepared an end-of-life directive. Mastrojohn and other experts in end-of-life issues say some of the stress can be reduced if people will think about what they might want in the future and then fill out advance directive paperwork. Each states paperwork is available on his groups website. There are a lot of misconceptions, particularly about hospice care, he said. Hospice does nothing to hasten or prolong death, but it views death and dying as a natural part of the life cycle. Hospice is there to help with issues related to pain, symptoms, the psychosocial and emotional issues one may be facing and for those to whom it is important, spiritual issues. He said families say they wish theyd involved hospice sooner.Early decisionsThe end of life can be more challenging because people can be caught off guard by it, said Judy Citko from the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California, a Sacramentobased collaboration focused on education to help people get care they want in the face of illness. People want to do the best they can, but its possible to be overwhelmed, she said. It takes a discussion of what makes life worth living for that person and to determine how much the patient is willing to tolerate in terms of pain, medical equipment, hospitalizations and more. If at least some of the conversations take place early, it isnt so hard when the decision actually has to be made. Her professional experience has not matched Pews findings, she said. What were seeing is that people are getting more educated about end of life and what kind of medical issues might arise and becoming more sensitized that (treating no matter what) might be a path they dont want to go down. Regardless, she said, conversations about endof-life wishes which can be changed as your views and circumstances change are important. The conversation is the most important thing, said Citko. It should be with anyone who is important in your life. What often happens, she added, is a family member who was left out of the conversation shows up at the bedside, creating conflicting views.

Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa Agriculture economists have long warned that farmers are getting old and staying on their land longer, delaying the turnover to a younger generation. But an Ohio State University professor argues that those fears are overstated and the United States likely will have little problem replacing aging farmers as long as business is good, as it has been for the past decade. Others arent so sure, saying while they agree with OSU agriculture economist Carl Zulaufs assessment that concerns about the unquestionably aging farmer population remain valid and create uncertainty about who will produce the nations crops in the future. I think what he said is absolutely right, Iowa State University economics professor Mike Duffy said. I think the conclusion hes drawing, though, is not necessarily the correct one. Zulauf contends that just like in the 1970s, farm prosperity will draw more young workers into farming. And prosperous the business is: This year, net income from U.S. farms is expected to reach a record $131 billion. Farm wealth has also reached record levels, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, with farm asset values rising 7 percent this year to a record $3 trillion. On average, farmers are about 15 years older than the broader U.S. workforce, Zulaf said, but noted in his October report that this age difference hasnt changed since the 1980s and that the average age of farmers is increasing at the same pace as U.S. workers generally. USDA statistics in 2007 showed that for each farmer under 25, there were five who were 75 or older. In Iowa alone, Duffy said, landowners who were older than 75 owned 28 percent of the states farmland in 2007, compared with 24 percent in 2002 and just 12 percent in 1982. Duffy believes its essential to pay attention to the transition of farms from one generation to another, saying the catch is enabling those young farmers with programs and policies that help people with few assets and little access to land to get a chance to farm. Land prices throughout the Midwest have soared in the past decade, largely due to strong prices for corn and soybeans, with the average value in the U.S. this year rising 9.4 percent to $2,900 per acre. Iowas average farm real estate value increased 20 percent this year to $8,400 an acre. And farm implements, such as tractors, combines and grain bins, are often pricey, with a new combine costing upward of $350,000. It takes a while to acquire that capital usually by saving or through inheritance, Zulauf said in an interview. That doesnt typically happen until people have passed a fair number of years as a working adult to get to that stage. Lindsey Lusher Shute, 34, knows that difficulty first hand. She and her husband, Benjamin Shute, 35, farm 70 acres near Clermont, N.Y. She said the three biggest concerns for younger people looking to farm are access to land, ability to borrow money for land and equipment and health insurance costs. Land in the Hudson Valley, where she is, costs about $8,000 to $10,000 an acre.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 A9 795-5900 Layaway Available Stunning Sterling Silver & Diamond East-West Crosses 600 SE Hwy. 19, Crystal River The Original Crystal River Manatee Bracelet TM Sterling/18K Silver Quartz & Black Diamonds Add sparkle and shine to your holiday gift giving!

N. Carolina man on way to Lebanon latest arrested Associated PressRALEIGH, N.C. Federal officials say Americans are joining the bloody civil war in Syria, raising the chances they could become radicalized by al-Qaida-linked militant groups and return to the U.S. as battle-hardened security risks. The State Department says it has no estimates of how many Americans have taken up weapons to fight military units loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad in the conflict that has killed more than 100,000 people over 2 1/2 years. Other estimates from an arm of the British defense consultant IHS Janes and from experts at a nonprofit think tank in London put the number of Americans at a couple dozen. The IHS group says al-Qaida-linked fighters number about 15,000, with total anti-Assad force at 100,000 or more. This year, at least three Americans have been charged with planning to fight beside Jabhat alNusrah a radical Islamic organization that the U.S. considers a foreign terrorist group against Assad. The most recent case involves a Pakistan-born North Carolina man arrested on his way to Lebanon. At a Senate homeland security committee hearing this month, Sen. Thomas Carper, DDel., said: We know that American citizens as well as Canadian and European nationals have taken up arms in Syria, in Yemen and in Somalia. The threat that these individuals could return home to carry out attacks is real and troubling. The hearing came about two weeks after the FBI and other officers arrested Basit Sheikh, 29, at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport on charges he was on his way to join Jabhat al-Nusrah. Sheikh, a legal resident of the United States, had lived quietly, without a criminal record, in a Raleigh suburb for five years before his Nov. 2 arrest. A similar arrest came in April in Chicago. And in September, authorities in Virginia released an Army veteran accused of fighting alongside the group after a secret plea deal. In August, outgoing FBI Director Robert Mueller told ABC News that he was concerned about Americans fighting in Syria, specifically the associations they will make and, secondly, the expertise they will develop, and whether or not they will utilize those associations, utilize that expertise, to undertake an attack on the homeland. Current FBI Director James Comey said this month that he worried about Syria becoming a repeat of Afghanistan in the 1980s, after the Soviet invasion, with foreign fighters attracted there to train. The FBI refused to say whether its directed agents to increase efforts to stop Americans bound for Syria. In the case of Sheikh, his North Carolina home isnt considered a breeding ground for terrorist activity. But Aaron Zelin, who works for both the London-based International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, notes that Sheikh lived about three hours from the hometown of Samir Khan, the editor of an English-language alQaida magazine who was killed in a drone attack in Yemen. Sheikh is charged with planning to assist a group the State Department has declared a terrorist organization. Its not illegal for Americans who also hold citizenship in another country to fight in that countrys military. But American citizenship can be lost for voluntarily serving in foreign armed forces hostile to the U.S. For five months this year, Sheikh didnt know he was being monitored as he posted messages and videos on Facebook expressing support for jihadi militants fighting Assads forces, according to a Nov. 2 sworn affidavit by FBI Special Agent Jason Maslow in support of the warrant to arrest Sheikh. In August, Sheikh commented to an undercover FBI employees posts on a Facebook page promoting Islamic extremism. The two struck up an online relationship, the affidavit said. Sheikh told the informant he planned to trek to Syria to join a brigade in logistics, managing medical supplies. Days later, Sheikh said hed bought a one-way ticket to travel to Turkey in hopes of making contact with people who would get him to Syria. Sheikh said he backed out because he could not muster the strength to leave his parents, the affidavit said. Sheikh said he had traveled to Turkey last year hoping to join the fight in Syria, but became dispirited by his experience with people who claimed to be part of the U.S.-backed Free Syrian Army. After Sheikh expressed online support for Jabhat al-Nusrah and interest in traveling to the war zone, the FBI employee suggested Sheikh contact a person with the group another FBI informant. Sheikh made contract, describing Jabhat al-Nusrah as the most disciplined group of anti-Assad fighters, the affidavit said. Im not scared, Sheikh wrote, according to the affidavit. Im ready. Two federal public defenders appointed to represent Sheikh are barred by local court practice from discussing their cases, spokeswoman Elizabeth Luck said. Sheikhs father, Javed Sheikh, said his son was falsely accused but that he trusts U.S. courts to find the truth. A federal magistrate ruled that Sheikh should be detained until his trial because there was clear evidence that he wouldnt appear if released on bond and that there was a serious risk to the community if he were freed. Basit Sheikhs arraignment is scheduled for January. He could face up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 A11 License #DN 17606 Next to ACE in Homosassa ( 352 ) 628-3443 Ledgerdentistry.com We Cater to Cowards!

One dead, at least five wounded Associated PressBANGKOK Aggressive political protests in the Thai capital turned violent late Saturday with at least one man killed and five wounded by gunshots in street fighting between supporters and opponents of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. It was not immediately known who fired the shots or what side the victims were on. National Police Deputy Spokesman Anucha Romyanan said the dead man was a 21-year-old male with two bullet wounds. The violence in the short run may stir fears of further instability like what plagued the country during related political conflicts in 2006, 2008 and 2010. Any escalation of violence is likely to scare away tourists who come to Thailand by the millions and contribute a huge chunk to the economy. But it may help the government by undermining the claims of its opponents to be carrying out a nonviolent campaign of civil disobedience. The violence is likely to scare away some supporters who would otherwise attend the oppositions rallies. Matters were feared to come to a head Sunday, when the protesters vowed to seize the well-guarded prime ministers offices. The demonstrators are seeking to topple Yinglucks government, which they believe serves the interests of her brother, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted by a 2006 military coup after being accused of corruption and abuse of power. The authorities have exercised extreme restraint over the past week as the protesters besieged and occupied parts of various government ministries and offices, aware that using force could tip public opinion and perhaps become an excuse for the military to take power in the name of restoring order. Conventional wisdom in the Thai capital has been that the protesters have been seeking that. A special police-led peacekeeping agency said Saturday that the military agreed to send 2,730 personnel to help with security on the streets today. Although the army has declared itself neutral in the current crisis, it deposed Thaksin in 2006 and shows little sympathy for him. The shootings Saturday night occurred after scattered violence during the day involving government opponents attacking several people they believed were going to a rally at a stadium of Red Shirt government supporters. While the main sites occupied by anti-government protesters remained peaceful, the violence broke out near a stadium where a crowd that appeared to number well over 50,000 Red Shirts rallied in support of the government. Villagers rush to aid rural Alaska crash survivorsANCHORAGE, Alaska Residents of a rural Alaska village reached survivors of a commuter plane crash two hours after the aircraft went down in freezing rain, authorities said Saturday. The pilot and three passengers died in the crash of the single-engine turboprop Cessna 208. At least six passengers were transported for medical treatment. There was no report of fire. Few other details, including the possible cause of the crash in freezing rain, are known, National Transportation Safety Board investigator Clint Johnson said. The Hageland Aviation flight crashed around 6:30 p.m. about four miles from Saint Marys, he said. Rescuers reached the scene at 8:30 p.m. Pilot Terry Hansen and passengers Rose Polty, Richard Polty and Wyatt Coffee, an infant, died in the crash, Alaska State Troopers said. The survivors included Melanie Coffee, Pauline Johnson, Kylan Johnson, Tonya Lawrence, Garrett Moses and Shannon Lawrence. Their ages and hometowns were not immediately available. The 40 to 50 people searching could not immediately spot the wrecked airplane despite speaking to survivors. They were hampered by fog. Coffee was able to leave the wrecked airplane and walk three-quarters of a mile to the village landfill, Lamont said, where she met a search party and guided responders to the crash.Thanksgiving snub led to machete threatNEW MILFORD, N.J. Authorities said a northern New Jersey man used a machete to threaten a family who excluded him and his son from their Thanksgiving Day celebrations. New Milford police told NJ.com that 48-year-old Joseph Hoo, of Upper Montclair, was charged with weapons offenses and making terroristic threats. Police responding to the familys home at around 2 p.m. Thursday stopped a van leaving the residence. Police said Hoo and his 18year-old son were in the vehicle, and officers soon found an 18-inch machete and two baseball bats inside the van. Hoo was released on his own recognizance but ordered to not have contact with the family. A telephone number for Hoo couldnt be located Saturday. It wasnt clear if he had retained an attorney.

The plane crashed in a Namibian national park near the border with Angola and there were no survivors, Namibian police and Mozambican authorities said. An investigation of the cause was under way, and teams of experts headed to the scene. The Brazilian-made Embraer 190 aircraft was carrying 27 passengers, including 10 Mozambicans, nine Angolans, five Portuguese and one citizen each from France, Brazil and China, said the airline. Six crew members, including two pilots, three flight attendants and a maintenance technician, were on board. Mozambiques transport minister, Gabriel Muthisse, confirmed the deaths of the 33 people on the plane. A Namibian police helicopter joined officers on the ground in the search, the Namibia Press Agency reported. The area is vast and there are no roads, making it difficult to locate the plane, said police official Willy Bampton, according to the agency.Ukraine leader blasts violenceKIEV, Ukraine Ukraines president has condemned the violent dispersal of pro-EU protesters by riot police. Early Saturday, officers in riot gear moved against several hundred protesters on Independence Square in central Kiev, beating some with truncheons. President Viktor Yanukovych said in an address Saturday evening that he condemned the actions that led to the forceful confrontation. He called for an investigation and for those responsible to be punished. The demonstrators have denounced Yanukovychs refusal to sign an association agreement with the European Union.Dom. Republic launches migrant planSANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic The Dominican Republic has launched a plan putting into motion a recent court ruling that could strip the citizenship of children born to migrants living there illegally. The plan became effective Saturday and states that those affected by the ruling have 18 months to request Dominican citizenship starting in June 2014. The plan, however, does not provide details on what kind of requirements or conditions should be met. President Danilo Medina signed the plan days before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights holds a fiveday hearing to receive complaints and testimonies from those affected by the ruling. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressAnti-government protesters lock the entrance door Saturday at the Department of Special Investigation after rally in Bangkok, Thailand. Anti-government protesters in Thailand placed symbolic padlocks on the doors of several state-run offices, continuing a week-long campaign to paralyze the administration of Yingluck Shinawatra. Scottish holiday marred by police helicopter crash Associated PressGLASGOW, Scotland Scotlands official holiday was transformed into a grim day of mourning Saturday as emergency crews searched the wreckage of a riverside pub smashed by a falling police helicopter. At least eight people died and more than a dozen remained hospitalized with serious injuries. The Clutha, a popular Glasgow pub, was filled with revelers enjoying a local ska band on Friday night, the eve of St. Andrews Day, named for the patron saint of Scotland and which is normally a celebration of Scottish culture and heritage. Instead, Scotlands leader ordered flags at government buildings to be lowered to half-staff after the tragedy. This is a black day for Glasgow and Scotland, but its also St. Andrews Day, and its a day we can take pride and courage in how we respond to adversity and tragedy, Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond said. There may be more bad news. Police said a rescue and recovery operation is ongoing and that it wasnt clear what will be found once the aircrafts wreckage is removed. The process may take days. That means more waiting for people who dont know if their loved ones were in The Clutha at the fateful moment when the helicopter fell from the sky, directly hitting the riverside drinking establishment. Witnesses said it seemed to fall straight down into the roof of the pub. The crash Friday at around 10:30 p.m. sent dozens of patrons fleeing through a cloud of dust. Witnesses spoke of people streaming out of the building covered in blood, with gashes and other injuries. Ambulances rushed to the scene, taking the injured to nearby hospitals. Local resident Paul Dundas, 26, said he heard a loud bang and looked out of his window to see a plume of dust rising above the pub. At first I thought it was a firework, he said. People were covered in blood and dust. Other people were dragging them away from the bar and trying to get them out. Everyone was in shock, but people were helping and asking strangers if they were OK. I saw a couple help each other clean up their faces. Chief Constable Stephen House said three of the dead were found in the helicopter, which was carrying two police officers and a civilian pilot. He said the five other fatalities were found inside the building and that 14 people remained hospitalized with serious injuries. House wouldnt say if more people are believed to be inside the severely damaged pub. He said the helicopter is still dominating the whole space in the one-story building and that police wont know the situation until the wreckage is cleared away. It wasnt immediately clear what the helicopter was doing in the area prior to the crash. Police and air safety investigators say its too early to speculate on why the Eurocopter EC135 T2 helicopter came down on the pubs roof, close to a helipad on the bank of the River Clyde. Associated PressA firefighter and a rescue worker inspect the damage Saturday at the site of a helicopter crash in Glasgow, Scotland. The police helicopter crashed late Friday night into the roof of a popular pub, leaving the building littered with debris and emergency crews scrambling to the scene.

AUGUSTINE I was slowly crossing a swinging log bridge when I paused, sensing the alligator 12 feet below was staring at me. The water around the 8-foot gators enormous body began rippling rapidly. A second later, Big Al let out a deep bellow, as if to say, If you fall, youre my lunch. I was grateful to be strapped in a harness. The bridge was part of a 49-station obstacle course that includes 10 zip lines at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. It takes visitors over crocodiles, lemurs, giant tortoises, vultures and, of course, lots of alligators. Its just a totally different perspective. You can go to any zoo in the world and look at them through the glass, but you cant go anywhere and look at them over the top of the enclosures like you can here, said Scott Brown, who designed and now manages the Crocodile Crossing at the zoo. The alligator farm is fascinating enough on foot. At 120 years old, its one of Floridas oldest tourist attractions and it is the only zoo in the world that displays all 23 crocodilian species, including the nearly extinct Philippine crocodile. From above, its even more amazing. I paused on a rope bridge to watch enormous African vultures rip apart a carcass, zipped over a lagoon with dozens of alligators, watched lemurs scrambling around their cage below me and saw the surprised faces of the guests on the ground as I flew over their heads. And its a good workout. Ive zip-lined through the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts and found this to be a bigger challenge. The zip lines in the mountains might be longer and faster, but the obstacles at the St. Augustine zoo make you work harder. I had to climb rope ladders, traverse a ST.

A16SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: I am in my 60s and have been married for 10 years to a wonderful man. Its a second marriage for both of us. He was a widower and I was divorced. The problem is his daughter, Emily, who has been a thorn in our sides from day one. When we married, we signed a prenup. My husband has investments, which are primarily in his childrens names. My house was paid for, and his wasnt, so he sold it and we moved into mine. Its still in my name because I intend to leave it to my children after both of us pass on. Emily has been complaining to her father that he should have his name on the deed to my house. I am not willing to do this, because if we divorce, he gets 50 percent of all of my assets, including the house. I dont have a lot of money, I dont make a lot of money and I also dont ask my husband for money. Yet, Emily tells him Im only after his money. I think Emily is evil and mean, and I dont want to be around her. She gives bill collectors our phone number, so we get harassed about her missing payments. The reason she wants her fathers name on my house is because she wants to inherit it. I am sick of her manipulations, but not sure what to do. Her father takes her side and it makes me wonder how much he loves me. Fed Up Dear Fed Up: Your problem isnt Emily so much as it is your husband, who refuses to tell her to knock it off. Please talk to him (do not badmouth his daughter) and explain that your prenup protects both of you and preserves your assets for your heirs. Reassure him that if you die, he can live in the house for the rest of his life, but then it passes to your children.

HANNAHDREIER Associated PressLAS VEGAS For years, Las Vegas tourists have had no place to pay their respects to one of the glitzy towns founding fathers. The once wildly popular Liberace museum, 2 miles from Sin Citys main tourist corridor, closed in 2010 after years of declining patronage, and the famously flamboyant entertainers shimmering artifacts have since languished in storage. This week, a Strip casino is bringing some of Liberaces most decadent possessions back into the public eye. Visitors to the six-week exhibition at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas will be able to gaze upon Liberaces glittering piano, trademark European candelabras, and so-called Rhinestone Roadster, an old-time car decked out in faux gemstones. Also on display are the custom-made cowboy boots, sequined jumpsuits and jewel-and-ermine capes that powered Liberaces catchphrase, My clothes may look funny but theyre making me the money. The flashy pianist became the best-paid entertainer on the planet during his heyday from the 1950s to the 1970s. He was the forerunner to gender-bender entertainers like Elton John, David Bowie, and Madonna, though he never openly addressed his sexual orientation, and his fans never seemed to catch on to his private gay life. After his death in the 1980s, Liberaces star faded faster than other Las Vegas fixtures like Frank Sinatra and Elvis. But this year has been good to his legacy. In August, a British businessman bought Liberaces 15,000-square-foot Las Vegas mansion for $500,000 and said he would work relentlessly to restore it to its former glory. In May, Michael Douglas played the entertainer in the HBO biopic Behind the Candelabra. The Cosmopolitan casino tends to attract a younger crowd. The installation is titled Too Much of a Good Thing Is Wonderful, and like its sub ject, it will keep late hours. It will be open through Jan. 2, from 3 p.m. until 10 p.m. high wire and struggle to maintain balance on bridges that use swinging ladders, swinging logs and boards that are placed so far apart they sometimes require a leap instead of a step. Even with temperatures in the low 70s I worked up a good sweat. Plus, you dont find alligators and crocodiles in the mountains of the Northeast. Its just almost impossible to match what they have in other parts of the country, but what we lack in distance and speed we make up for in the scenery, Brown said. You have to go through the obstacles to get to the zip line. The zip line is your reward for your hard work of the obstacles. Theres a reason they call it a challenge course. It is challenging. The longest zip-line on the course is 300 feet, or the length of a football field. There are some very fast lines, requiring some quick breaking. Theres also the occasional palm frond that harmlessly whacks your butt. I didnt stare at the alligators and crocodiles while zipping, choosing to instead focus on the landing platform ahead of me. But I did pause often on the platforms and obstacles to look at the creatures below. The zoo spaces out the guests to ensure they arent rushed through the course, which takes about 90 minutes to complete. The most amazing, awesome thing Ive done ever, said Ava Martin, 53, who lives just north of St. Augustine. She and her 21-year-old son Corey were taking the course for the second time. Being over a big alligator is freaky! Corey Martin said. Youre not rushed to do it. While youre doing it, you can just stop, if you like, and see everything. That includes behind-thescene views that other guests wont get. Youll see things that the public doesnt get to see, said Brown. Whether its other animal enclosures, animals getting moved, animals getting a vet visit, maybe getting blood drawn. And its always exciting for the public to see a large alligator or even a small alligator getting caught, getting taped up and getting moved. Youre always going to see something that nobody else is looking at. The course is a do-it-yourself adventure. Guests are given instructions at the beginning on how to clip and unclip themselves to safety lines. A guide then follows on the ground and makes sure theyre following safety rules, while at the same time providing facts about the animals theyre seeing. I saw the whole park. It was amazing, said Jackson Lawson, 12, of Hahira, Ga., who was celebrating his birthday at the alligator farm. I stopped on a zip line just to hang there for a second to look at mostly the alligators because we were just so close to them above them. It was really pretty. It was cool.EXCURSIONSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 A21 ZIPContinued from Page A15 Associated PressManager Scott Brown standing at the first of 49 stations on the obstacle course at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm in St. Augustine.

Panthers wary of trap game vs. Bucs Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Panthers coach Ron Rivera wont allow his team to fall victim to a potential trap game today against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Theres too much at stake. The Panthers (8-3) are the NFL s hottest team, having won seven straight games to position themselves for their first playoff appearance since 2008. Yet they still trail New Orleans by a game in the NFC South. So next weeks game against the Saints could help determine not only the division champion but wholl get a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs. Thats why the first thing Rivera mentioned to his players during their team meeting this week was that their focus needs to be solely on the Buccaneers. I do mean it when I say the most important game is Tampa Bay, said Rivera, who has gone from hot seat to potential coach of the year contender. I mean, I know whats after Tampa, but hey, there is no after that if we dont take care of business right now. The Panthers know they cant take the Bucs lightly. Tampa Bay comes in on a three-game winning streak after starting the season 0-8. The Bucs dont resemble the team the Panthers destroyed 31-13 last month in Tampa. Although its too late to make a difference this year, Bucs coach Greg Schiano said hes pleased with how his team has responded after a disappointing first half of the season. Our players have stuck together, theres been no finger pointing, Schiano said. Its hard when you get on that 0-5, 0-6, the pressure mounts to get that win, and I think our guys have done a good job of just sticking together. Thats the best part of it.

That crazy tipped pass for a long game-winning touchdown is now the secondmost stunning and improbable play of Auburns wild season. Yes, the Tigers found a way to top The Immaculate Deflection. Chris Davis returned a missed field-goal attempt more than 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34-28 victory over No. 1 Alabama on Saturday, upending the two-time defending national champions BCS hopes and preserving the Tigers own. Were a team of destiny, Davis said. We wont take no for an answer. He delivered a play that deserves its own nickname. Say the Happiest Return. Or the saddest, depending on which side of the Iron Bowl you sit. Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffiths 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-tofathom finish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference). I knew when I caught the ball I would have room to run, Davis said. I knew they would have big guys on the field to protect on the field goal. When I looked back, I said, I cant believe this. Auburn clinched a spot in the SEC championship game with the stunning victory over the powerhouse from across the state. The Crimson Tide (11-1, 7-1) several times seemed poised to continue its run toward the first three-peat in modern college football, but couldnt put the Tigers away. Asked if it was the biggest win of his career, Tigers coach Gus Malzahn said: It ranks right up Associated PressAuburn cornerback Chris Davis returns a field goal attempt over 100 yards with no time left in the second half Saturday against Alabama in Auburn, Ala.

Wolverines miss two-point attempt in 42-41 setback Associated PressANN ARBOR, Mich. The 110th game between Ohio State and Michigan might have been the most thrilling, a back-and-forth affair that came down to one final play. The Wolverines went for the win and the Buckeyes stayed undefeated. Tyvis Powell intercepted Devin Gardners 2-point conversion pass with 32 seconds left and No. 3 Ohio State held on for a 42-41 victory against Michigan on Saturday as one of the greatest rivalries in sports added another memorable chapter to its storied history. Thats an instant classic, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. Gardner threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Devin Funchess to make it 42-41, but instead of kicking for the tie and possibly pushing the game to overtime, Wolverines coach Brady Hoke asked his players if they wanted to go for it and got a unanimous response. See OSU/ Page B5 Associated PressFlorida State wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin catches a 4-yard touchdown pass in the end zone in front of Florida defensive back Vernon Hargreaves III during the second half Saturday in Gainesville. The No. 2 Seminoles coasted to a 37-7 victory over the Ga tors. No. 2 Florida State invades The Swamp to rout host Florida 37-7 Associated PressGAINESVILLE Kelvin Benjamin shook off one tackler and then three more, bullying his way into the end zone to finish off Florida States most impressive play on a day filled with them. Benjamin was clearly a mismatch just like the game. Jameis Winston threw three touchdown passes to Benjamin, and No. 2 Florida State moved a step closer to playing for the national championship with a 37-7 victory against rival Florida on Saturday. Tremendous, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. KB has real advantages with his size, speed and athleticism. He can be a very, very special player, and hes starting to develop into that guy. The Seminoles improved to 12-0 for the first time since 1999 and likely will earn a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game by beating Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game next Saturday. Florida, meanwhile, ended its worst season since 1979. The Gators (4-8) lost their final seven games and missed a bowl for the first time since 1990. Floridas bowl streak had been the second-longest in the country, behind Florida State. We hit rock bottom this year, Florida guard Max Garcia said. I feel like the only way we can go is up. The Seminoles were four-touchdown favorites in a lopsided matchup that lived up to advance billing. Although the outcome was never in doubt, the Gators made it interesting early with some stout defense. They hit Winston several times, even late once, and stuffed FSUs running game. But with its offense floundering once again Florida managed just three first downs in the first half the defense eventually wore down. And Winston & Co. took advantage. His competitiveness is ridiculous, Fisher said of Winston. Hes a competitor. Nothing fazes that guy. He thrives on that. ... The guys ability to learn and process information is what puts him over the top. He can think. He understands what hes doing at all times. And when he makes a mistake, he can come off and tell you exactly why he did it, what he did or didnt do right.

Thats what you coach for, thats what these kids play for, to get a chance to win the SEC championship, Malzahn said. The Tigers put it away just when overtime on tap. The public address announcer in the stadium had already declared the game 28-28 at the end of regulation. But Alabama got 1 second restored and one more play after a review of T.J. Yeldons run to the Auburn 39. That gave the Tide coach Nick Saban a chance to try the long field goal and now he probably wished he never did, given the stunning result. It was a great game, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron said. Sometimes luck just isnt on your side. Its one of those crazy plays. Its almost like a video game. Thats something you do on Madden or NCAA. Its just a wild play. The entire field looked like a sea of orange shakers as the celebration continued long after the climactic finale of one of the biggest Iron Bowls in the bitter rivalrys 78-year history. It lived up to the billing and then some. According to NCAA records, it was only the fourth time that a missed field goal was returned for 100 yards, with LSUs Odell Beckham Jr. doing it against UAB early this season. This finale even one-upped Auburns last-gasp win over Georgia two weeks earlier.

Sports BRIEFS McIlroy trails Scott at Aussie Associated PressSYDNEY Adam Scott shot a 4-under 68 Saturday to take a four-shot lead over Rory McIlroy heading into the final round of the AustralianOpen and move closer to a Australian triple crown. Scott is trying to match Robert Allenbys 2005 accomplishment of winning the Open, Australian Masters and Australian PGA in succession. Scott also won the Masters at Augusta in April. Scott shot a course record 62 on the first day and followed with a second-round 70. Saturdays round of six birdies and two bogeys moved him to 16-under 200 for the tournament. McIlroy started the day two shots behind Scott and lost ground with a bogey and doublebogey against five birdies, finishing with a 70. McIlroy is vying for his first victory of the year. Australians Richard Green, Matthew Jones and Max McCardle shared third place at 8 under, eight shots off the pace. Scotts round on Saturday means he is now 51 under par for his three tournaments in Australia this year. To win my national championship tomorrow and then also win the three events down here is an unbelievable spot to be in, Scott said. If youd told me that a month ago, I wouldnt have believed you. Before this month started, I hadnt won two tournaments in a row ever. So to have this opportunity is a bit unreal. Scott said he would sleep easier after holing a six-foot birdie putt on the last hole and then watching McIlroy miss a birdie putt from closer range to increase the Australians lead. One round away and a lot can happen, he said. (Theres) a phenomenon behind me as well so Im sure hes going to throw plenty at me tomorrow. Im going to have to do a couple of things better than I did today. But as long as the eye stays in with the putter, I should be able to hang on. To finish it off tomorrow would be an incredible way to end the year. McIlroy said his missed birdie chance on 18 had been costly. It was big, he said. It would have been nice to birdie that to make the gap from four to three. Jason Day, who partnered with Scott to win the World Cup of golf for Australia last week, had the days equal-best round of 66 to briefly take the clubhouse lead but eventually that was only good for a tie for 10th.Schwartzel on course to defend at Alfred DunhillMALELANE, South Africa Charl Schwartzel opened a two-shot lead after three rounds at the Alfred Dunhill Championship. The defending champion shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday to move to 13 under and pull away from Englands Richard Finch at Leopard Creek. Victor Riu of France was another shot back at 10 under. Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters champion, led after three rounds at the South African Open last weekend before slipping up on the final day. He carded five birdies and no bogeys to lead outright with a round to play at the Alfred Dunhill, which he won by a dominant 12 shots a year ago for his last European Tour win and only victory on the circuit since the triumph at the 2011 Masters. He had five birdies and no bogeys to take the lead. Schwartzels coovernight leader, Morten Orum Madsen, shot a 7-over 79. After expressing his displeasure with the second-round pin placements at the Alfred Dunhill, Schwartzel avoided any slipups in his third round and has not dropped a shot since the 10th hole of his opening round. If I had really putted well today it could have been very low, Schwartzel said. The good thing is that I know its there. It very easily could have been low but it was still a solid round of golf and this is still a tough golf course. Finch and Riu also put themselves into contention with 5-under 67s, with Finch also avoiding any dropped shots and adding five birdies. Riu had six birdies and just a single drop on No. 18. Frenchman Romain Wattel is fourth on 9 under and Denmarks Soren Hansen fifth on 8 under. South African Hennie Otto second behind Madsen in the new 2014 Race to Dubai standings is tied for sixth with Englands Ross Fisher on 7 under, five back from Schwartzel. PGA Tour regular Brendon de Jonge is making steady progress and up to a tie for eighth on 6 under with a 68. Early money list leader Madsen had a disastrous third round after sharing the halfway lead with Schwartzel. The Dane had four bogeys going out and three bogeys and a double bogey coming home, and only two birdies. Associated PressRory McIlroy watches his tee shot Saturday during his third round of the Australian Open golf tournament in Sydney, Australia. McIlroy trails leader Adam Scott by four strokes heading into todays final round. Dolphins Martin will not return to team Offensive lineman placed on teams reserve list Associated PressDAVIE Jonathan Martins season is officially over. The Miami Dolphins put the troubled offensive tackle on the reserve/non-football illness list Saturday, freeing up his roster spot so safety D.J. Campbell could be promoted from the teams practice squad. The move was not unexpected. Martin left the Dolphins on Oct. 28, the start of what became an explosive probe into allegations that a culture of bullying was around the team and inside its locker room. Offensive lineman Richie Incognito was suspended Nov. 3 for his alleged role in the turmoil. Media reports Friday said the Dolphins and Incognito agreed to extend his suspension past the four-week window typically allowed by league rule, and that Incognito would resume getting paid. Investigator Ted Wells probe of the team and its workplace environment is ongoing.Seattles Harvin doubtful to play against SaintsRENTON, Wash. Percy Harvin is listed as doubtful to play Monday night for Seattle against the New Orleans Saints because of lingering soreness in his surgically repaired hip. Harvin made his debut with the Seahawks two weeks ago against the Minnesota Vikings and appeared in 21 total plays, 19 offensive snaps and two plays on special teams. Harvin made one catch for 17 yards and returned a kickoff 58 yards in his only two touches in the game.Bengals WR Sanu a perfect passer in NFLBengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu has yet to miss when he throws the ball in the NFL. The prep quarterback has gotten two chances to pass during his two seasons with Cincinnati, and hes been right on the mark both times for big plays. His latest was a 25-yard completion that started the Bengals toward a 41-20 win over Cleveland two weeks ago. Sanu lined up to the left, took a lateral from Andy Dalton and threw across the field, dropping the ball over a linebacker so running back Giovani Bernard could make a catch along the sideline. The completion set up Daltons touchdown pass for a 14-13 lead. As a rookie last season, Sanu lined up at quarterback on the first play from scrimmage, took the snap and threw an in-stride pass to A.J. Green for a 73-yard touchdown in Washington. Hes got a really good arm, Dalton said. When hes had his couple of chances, hes made some good plays. Sanu played quarterback at South Brunswick High School in New Jersey and threw for 900 yards one season. He also played receiver and safety. At Rutgers, he ran wildcat packages while setting a Big East record with 210 career catches. He doesnt get a chance to work on his passing during the week, which made his cross-field throw even more impressive. He was doing it cold. Youve just got to do it, Sanu said. Theres really no practice. Ive got to work on my craft as a receiver. I just do everything I can to make sure I get it there. I played quarterback a lot in my life, so its kind of like riding a bike.Here boyQuarterback Matt Hasselbeck has been dealing with some of the more unique challenges of switching teams in the same division. He was with the Tennessee Titans the past two seasons before they released him in March, then he signed with the Titans AFC South rivals, the Colts. His only regret? That he named the familys chocolate labrador Titan. So I get a lot of dirty looks now, Hasselbeck said. Thats never going to change. Oh well, I probably should have thought that through a bit more, but we really thought that was our last stop. Hasselbeck said he blames Titans quarterback Jake Locker for talking him into his familys first dog because Locker also bought a puppy from the same litter. Andrew Luck was over last night for dinner and he said, Whats your dogs name again? I was like, Uh, Titan, Hasselbeck said on a conference call with Tennessee reporters. One benefit from Hasselbecks time in Nashville is he didnt have to worry about selling a home because his family simply rented. Hasselbeck called it the greatest Nashville experience anyone could have. We ended up renting a house from Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, which was like a dream in itself, Hasselbeck said. It didnt seem real, but they were just great landlords, super nice people, and very considerate.Weight lossMike Pouncey temporarily dropped 15 pounds, and he doesnt recommend the diet. The Miami Dolphins center shed the weight when he came down with a gall bladder illness that sent him to the hospital for three nights in two stints. Once healthy, he said, his appetite gradually returned. At first, I didnt even like food because I was so scared of getting sick again, he said. Now Im back eating on a regular schedule, and Ive got all my weight back. It feels good to be back heavy. Pouncey, who plays at 305 pounds, planned to follow a big meal for Thanksgiving with being back in the lineup after missing two games. Miami is at the New York Jets today.Decembers to rememberTom Brady generally is considered the best of the December quarterbacks, and he has won 15 of his last 16 games during the month. Yet its his top rival for QB of his era, Peyton Manning, who is closing in on December records. Denvers Manning needs four touchdown passes this month to tie Brett Favres career mark of 116. Dan Marino is third with 110, followed by Drew Brees with 90, then Brady and Dave Krieg with 80.Early clinchingsDont look now, but two teams could clinch playoff berths this weekend. Seattle has the easiest road: If the Seahawks beat New Orleans in the Monday nighter, and Arizona loses, Seattle is in. Or if San Francisco loses and the Seahawks win, they have at least a wild card. Its more convoluted in the AFC West. Denver is at Kansas City. For the Broncos to grab a playoff berth, they must win and have the Chargers and Titans lose, and the Jets tie Miami. That same scenario exists for the Chiefs with a win, and they also could get in if both San Diego and Tennessee lose, and either Miami or New England falls. Associated PressMiami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin will not return to the team this season.

Still, the rookie will have his hands full this week against the Panthers, who have given up just 13.7 points per game, fewest in the NFL. Tampa Bay is 28th in the league in scoring. On the other side of the ball, Cam Newton continues to make plays and has led the Panthers to three straight come-from-behind victories. There are no trap games, Newton said. That is a stigma, a stereotype, a myth. In this league you have to always be prepared for the challenges it may bring. Five things to watch with the Bucs-Panthers:Running game woesNewton has led the Panthers in rushing the last two weeks and thats surely something offensive coordinator Mike Shula wants to change. Carolinas running backs have been stagnant as opposing defenses have stacked the box and forced Newton to beat them with his arm.Hurry it upWhen the Panthers struggled last week and fell behind early to the Miami Dolphins, Shula turned to a no-huddle offense to help speed up the tempo. It worked. Newton looked more comfortable running that style and the Panthers beat the Dolphins on a TD pass to Greg Olsen in the final minute. Rivera said its something the team will consider using more in the future.Its Rainey out thereWith four running backs on injured reserve, the Bucs have turned to Bobby Rainey to carry the ball and hes been a pleasant surprise. The second-year back from Western Kentucky has run for 243 yards and scored four TDs in Tampa Bays three wins.Turnover centralTurnovers are important in any game, but both defenses do a nice job of getting the ball back for their offense. Carolina has forced 24 turnovers this season, tied for second in the league. Tampa Bay, which had five takeaways last week against Detroit, has 24 on the season, tied for seventh best.Johnson factorThe Panthers are likely to be without defensive end Charles Johnson, who remains hobbled with a sprained knee. Johnson was leg-whipped in Carolinas Nov. 18 win over New England. Mario Addison played well in his absence last week. BUCSContinued from Page B1 Associated PressTampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon congratulates wide receiver Tiquan Underwood during the second quarter on Sunday, Nov. 24 at Ford Field in Detroit. alleged rape, hooked up with Benjamin for touchdown passes of 45 and 29 yards in the second quarter. Winston found his 6-foot-5 target again in the third, a 56-yard connection that would have gone the distance had Benjamin not fallen down while making the catch. Devonta Freeman scored on the next play, weaving untouched from 11 yards out and putting the Seminoles ahead 27-0. Winston and Benjamin recorded the hat trick with a 4-yard score in the fourth. FSU outgained Florida 456-193, most of it through the air. Winston completed 19 of 31 passes for 327 yards. Benjamin caught nine passes for a career-high 212 yards, beating Loucheiz Purifoy early and often. Benjamins previous high was 103 yards receiving at Boston College earlier this year. Just doing the little things to be a great receiver, basically, Benjamin said. About the only thing that went wrong for FSU was that testy exchange between Winston and coach Jimbo Fisher in the fourth quarter. Fisher was upset that Winston let the play clock wind down, forcing the team to call timeout. Winston screamed back at Fisher, who grabbed Winstons facemask on the sideline. The coach and player downplayed it afterward. Floridas defense held tough early, giving up just 33 yards and a field goal in the first quarter. Purifoy even intercepted Winstons fifth pass of the game, but the Gators failed to capitalize on the turnover. Austin Hardin missed a 49-yard field goal wide right. It was Floridas ninth missed field goal of the season. As the offense kept stalling, the defense started fading. Everybody started looking at the scoreboard as a collective group and saying, Dang, the offense is just three-and-out, three-and-out, three-andout, Florida defensive lineman Jon Bullard said. It certainly didnt help that Florida had to throw its offensive game plan out the window after four plays. Trey Burton hurt his left shoulder on his second carry of the game, a fitting finale for the injury-riddled Gators. Coach Will Muschamp said the plan was to line Burton up at quarterback for 35 plays. He ran twice for 47 yards, including a 50-yarder up the middle on his first carry. He injured his shoulder on his second run, Floridas fourth offensive play. He went to the locker room and later returned wearing street clothes. His left arm was in a sling and wrapped with ice. Obviously you dont want to go out like that, Burton said. I felt like I let my team down a little bit. Without him, Florida turned to freshman Skyler Mornhinweg. He struggled in his two previous games, throwing for 229 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception. Mornhinweg finished 20-of-25 passing for 115 yards. Floridas worst season in 34 years did nothing to affect Muschamps status for 2014. Athletic director Jeremy Foley held an impromptu news conference before the game and reiterated total confidence in Muschamp, but said weve got to fix some things on the offensive side of the ball. We havent made an excuse all year and were not going to make them now, Foley said. We know what this program is all about. I have total confidence in coach Muschamp and have made that clear. Weve got to fix some things. TAILContinued from Page B1 Associated PressFlorida running back Mack Brown tries to get past Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman during the second half Saturday in Gainesville. We played the game to win, Hoke said. Gardner tried to zip a pass to Drew Dileo into traffic near the goal line, but Powell came up with it and the quarterback was left lying on his back with his arms extended to his side, the back of his helmet resting on the cold turf. We felt like we could win the game right there, Gardner said, looking and sounding as saddened as any athlete after a setback. Buckeyes cornerback Roby Bradley recovered the onside kick to seal Ohio States 24th consecutive victory and keep its national championship hopes alive. And then thing got even better for the Buckeyes when Auburn beat Alabama later. Meyer insisted the streak was not as significant as winning his second game in as many tries against Michigan. No question the win over our rival is better, he said. Braxton Miller accounted for a career-high matching five touchdowns for Ohio State (12-0, 8-0) and Carlos Hyde ran for a 1-yard score with 2:20 left to make it 42-35. The Buckeyes left Ann Arbor knowing they will play Michigan State in the Big Ten title game next Saturday in Indianapolis, needing to beat the Spartans and have No. 1 Alabama or No. 2 Florida State lose a game to have a chance to reach the BCS national championship game. No. 4 Auburn provided an assist by defeating the Crimson Tide by returning a missed field goal 100 yards on the final play for a 34-28 victory. The Wolverines (7-5, 3-5) started strong as a 16 1-2-point underdog and didnt wilt when Ohio State went up 35-21 late in the third quarter, one drive after Gardner threw an incomplete pass on fourth-and-2 when Hoke opted against attempting a 31-yard field goal. They didnt let up at all, Miller said. Michigan, though, couldnt make a pivotal play in a shootout that mightve given it the biggest upset in the series since Bo Schembechlers first team at Michigan beat what Woody Hayes said was his best Buckeyes squad in 1969. I threw an interception that cost us the win, said Gardner, who limped into a news conference with a protective boot on his left foot. Thats what I will remember. Miller ran for 153 yards and three TDs and threw for 133 yards and two scores. Hyde ran for 226 yards to help Ohio State win for the ninth time in 10 games against Michigan, but he fumbled in the fourth quarter to help Michigan tie the game for a fourth time with 5:01 left. OSUContinued from Page B1 Associated PressPenn States Zach Zwinak tries to run past Wisconsins Chris Borland during the second half Saturday in Madison, Wis. Penn State won 31-24. PSU knocks off Badgers No. 8 Stanford repels Notre Dame; No. 9 Baylor holds off TCU Associated PressMADISON, Wis. Christian Hackenberg threw for 339 yards and four touchdowns, and Penn State pounced on a slew of blunders before holding off a late rally to upset No. 15 Wisconsin 31-24. Hackenberg, a freshman, showed the poise of a veteran in dissecting a tough defense. Eugene Lewis caught two touchdowns, including a 59-yarder for a 17-point lead with 13 minutes to go. The Nittany Lions (7-5, 4-4 Big Ten) secured a statement win against a team that had been dominant all year at home. Joel Stave threw for three touchdowns for Wisconsin (9-3, 6-2), though Penn State capitalized on second-half interceptions, turning one into Lewis long TD. The Badgers got within a touchdown late, but were picked off in the end zone with 1 second left.No. 8 Stanford 27, No. 25 Notre Dame 20STANFORD, Calif. Wayne Lyons intercepted two passes from Tommy Rees late in the fourth quarter, and No. 8 Stanford held off No. 25 Notre Dame 27-20 in the regularseason finale for both teams. The Cardinal (10-2) overcame two interceptions from Kevin Hogan and a penalty that wiped away another touchdown to win their 16th consecutive home game. Stanford will play for its second straight Pac-12 title and Rose Bowl berth next week when it faces No. 13 Arizona State in the conference championship game. Tyler Gaffney ran for 189 yards and a touchdown, and Hogan threw for 158 yards and a TD pass to Devon Cajuste to help the Cardinal take a 21-6 lead in the third quarter. Rees nearly rallied the Fighting Irish (8-4) by throwing two touchdown passes later in the quarter. But interceptions on Notre Dames final two drives dashed Notre Dames comeback.No. 9 Baylor 41, TCU 38FORT WORTH, Texas Bryce Petty threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, and Baylor returned two interceptions for scores. The Bears (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) scored 21 straight points on either side of halftime with just 1 yard from their high-powered offense and bounced back from a blowout loss at Oklahoma State to maintain their hopes for a share of the conference title. Baylor could win the league outright and qualify for a BCS bid, likely the Fiesta Bowl, if it beats Texas and the Cowboys lose to Oklahoma next Saturday. The Horned Frogs (4-8, 2-7) were in position to tie in the final seconds, but Casey Pachall threw his third interception on a pass tipped by receiver Brandon Carter and grabbed by Baylors Terrell Burt in the end zone with 11 seconds left.No. 11 Michigan State 14, Minnesota 3EAST LANSING, Mich. Jeremy Langford ran for 134 yards and a touchdown, and Michigan State wrapped up an unbeaten regular season in Big Ten play. The Spartans (11-1, 8-0) finished a perfect Big Ten regular season for only the third time. They also did it in 1965 and 1966, when they only had to play seven conference games. Michigan State will face Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game next weekend. The Spartans had already wrapped up the Legends Division title, but there was no letdown against Minnesota (8-4, 4-4). The Spartans top-ranked defense forced three turnovers and kept the Golden Gophers out of the end zone, repeating a formula that has brought Michigan State within a win of the Rose Bowl.No. 24 Duke 27, UNC 25CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Ross Martin kicked a 27-yard field goal with 2:22 left and Duke completed an improbable run to reach the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Anthony Boone threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns to Jamison Crowder as the Blue Devils (10-2, 6-2 ACC) clinched the Coastal Division championship with their eighth straight victory. DeVon Edwards interception with 13 seconds left clinched the longsuffering programs first 10-win season. Duke will face No. 2 Florida State next weekend in Charlotte, where the heavy underdog Blue Devils will go for their first ACC crown since 1989.No. 10 South Carolina 31, No. 6 Clemson 17COLUMBIA, S.C. Connor Shaw threw for one touchdown and rushed for another as No. 10 South Carolina won its record fifth straight over No. 6 Clemson with 31-17 victory. The Gamecocks (10-2) won their 18th straight at home, extending a school record set earlier this year. For Shaw, it capped the seniors home career at a perfect 17-0 as a starter in the sweetest way possible. The Tigers (10-2) had never lost five consecutive games to their rival in a series that began in 1896 which they still lead 65-42-4 all-time. The loss also left record-setting quarterback Tajh Boyd 0-for-4 against the Gamecocks. South Carolina put things away with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to break away from 17-all tie. Mike Davis had a 2-yard scoring run with 11:47 left and Pharoh Cooper threw a 26-yard TD pass to Brandon Wilds.

Dawson, SNF32-3216-195580 Gano, CAR30-3016-185578 NFLSTATISTICS Just 3 meetings with winners vs. winners this week Associated PressThe rematch has lost some of its luster with Kansas City dropping its last two games and Denvers collapse in New England after beating the Chiefs. Still, the AFC West showdown is far better than many other matchups this holiday week, and there remains plenty on the line. Only three games involve two teams with winning marks: Denver (9-2) at Kansas City (9-2); Arizona (7-4) at Philadelphia (6-5); and the Monday nighter, with New Orleans (9-2) at Seattle (10-1), a matchup of the top two teams in the AP Pro32 and in the NFC. The Broncos handed the Chiefs their first loss two weeks ago yep, they are meeting twice in three weeks in a scheduling quirk. Then San Diego torched what had been the leagues top defense when linebackers and sacks threats Tamba Hali and Justin Houston left with injuries. Hali expects to play. Houstons availability, just as critical for KC, is far less likely. Its a division game, thats the biggest thing. As the season goes on the playoff implications get bigger and bigger, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. Regardless if we both lost last week, its still right there in front of us. No question, thats the focus. As it is in Denver, where folks are questioning Peyton Mannings ability to win in the cold after his so-so performance at New England. Temperatures are not projected to dip below freezing at Arrowhead Stadium today. Also today, its New England at Houston, Cincinnati at San Diego, Tennessee at Indianapolis, Tampa Bay at Carolina, Chicago at Minnesota, St. Louis at San Francisco, Miami at the New York Jets, the New York Giants at Washington, Jacksonville at Cleveland, and Atlanta vs. Buffalo at Toronto. The holiday week began Thursday with the Lions routing the Packers 40-10. Matthew Stafford made up for some mistakes with three touchdown passes, including one to Calvin Johnson, to help Detroit score 37 straight points. Dallas also won its traditional Thanksgiving game, with DeMarco Murray running for three touchdowns in a 31-24 victory over Oakland. The Cowboys (7-5) moved two games above .500 for the first time since late last season, while the Raiders (4-8) are guaranteed an 11th straight season without a winning record. The night matchup turned into another close game in the AFC North rivalry between Pittsburgh and Baltimore. Justin Tucker kicked five field goals, and the Ravens snuffed a conversion pass with 1:03 left to escape with a 22-20 victory. After Pittsburgh scored on a 1-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Jerricho Cotchery to get within two points, Roethlisbergers conversion pass slipped through the hands of Emmanuel Sanders. New Orleans (9-2) at Seattle (10-1), Monday night If this one is as memorable as their last meeting, in a 2010 divisional playoff game when the Seahawks, a 7-9 NFC West winner, knocked off the Saints, then it will be special. The league surely is hoping so by scheduling it for prime time. Marshawn Lynchs 67-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter remains a must-see highlight. Hes been a beast again this year, needing 75 yards to reach 1,000 for the fifth time in his career. Seattle has won a franchisebest 13 straight at home, and no one relishes visiting Century Link Field in the postseason. Nor does anyone really want to go to New Orleans, where the Saints are perfect in 2013. A Saints win will put them in prime position for NFC homefield advantage. Arizona (7-4) at Philadelphia (6-5) Two first-year coaches Arizonas Bruce Arians won NFL Coach of the Year as an interim in Indianapolis filling in last year for Chuck Pagano, who was battling leukemia with teams on the rise. The Cardinals have won four straight and havent won five in a row since 1977. Carson Palmer has had two consecutive big games, and Larry Fitzgerald tends to toy with the Philadelphia secondary. Fitzgerald was NFC offensive player of week following each of his last two games against the Eagles and has nine TD catches in five games against them. The Eagles have won three in a row. The offense under Chip Kelly has already set a franchise record with nine games of 400 total yards. The defense has held opponents to 21 points or less in each of the last seven games. New England (8-3) at Houston (2-9) Its a December game, which means the Patriots are more dangerous than ever. Theyve won 15 of their last 16 in the month, and they are getting healthier on offense, if not on defense. Their confidence should be soaring after rallying from a 24-0 hole at halftime to beat Denver last Sunday night. Houston has lost a franchiserecord nine in a row and is in contention for the top overall draft pick. Cincinnati (7-4) at San Diego (5-6) With the Broncos, Chiefs and Colts stumbling lately, the Bengals suddenly are in the mix for a first-round bye if they can surge to the AFC North title. The schedule isnt daunting, but this week the Chargers come off an uplifting win at Kansas City and are in the wild-card chase. San Diego plays four of its final five games at home, which would seem to give the Chargers an edge in that race. But they are only 2-2 at Qualcomm Stadium. Tennessee (5-6) at Indianapolis (7-4) The Titans have never won in Lucas Oil Stadium (0-5). A first victory there would make it a race again in the AFC South. Indy, though, has gone 26 consecutive games without back-toback losses. Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker and Colts linebacker Erik Walden will square off for the first time since Walden ripped off Walkers helmet and delivered a head butt, which drew Walden a one-game suspension from the NFL. Chicago (6-5) at Minnesota (2-8-1) The Bears have alternated wins and losses in each of the last seven weeks, and that should mean a victory in their last trip to the Metrodome before it is demolished. They have lost eight of their last 10 there. Maybe the spotlight belongs on the kick returners: NFL career record setter Devin Hester for Chicago, rookie Cordarrelle Patterson for the Vikes. Or maybe not: Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is 154 yards from 10,000 for his career, and the Bears banged-up defense is on track to give up more than 2,300 yards rushing. No, not on Sunday, despite how dangerous Peterson is, but for the entire season. St. Louis (5-6) at San Francisco (7-4) The Rams are seeking their first three-game winning streak of 2013 and have no fear of the 49ers after beating and tying them last year, when San Francisco went to the Super Bowl. Rams rookie WR Tavon Austin had a 65-yard TD run last week against Chicago for his fourth TD in a row from beyond midfield and sixth overall. Dont expect such long-range antics against a Niners defense that ranks sixth overall and is as physical as any. Receiver Michael Crabtree is expected to make his season debut for San Francisco following May surgery on a torn right Achilles tendon. Miami (5-6) at New York Jets (5-6) Hard to believe one of these teams will be solidly in wild-card contention after they meet at the Meadowlands. New Yorks wins and losses in alternating weeks ended with a defeat at Baltimore last Sunday, and rookie QB Geno Smith seems lost. It doesnt help that other than RB Chris Ivory, he has virtually no skilled players at the skill positions. Miami is the only team to score less than 28 points in every game. It hopes to get back center Mike Pouncey, who missed two games with a stomach ailment. New York Giants (4-7) at Washington (3-8) The NFL didnt flex this game away from prime time, perhaps hoping one of these NFC East weaklings would have made a turnaround. The Giants were doing so with four consecutive victories following an 0-6 start, but they fell at home to Dallas last weekend. At least New York has found a running game. Andre Brown has rushed for 308 yards in three games after returning from a broken leg. The Redskins have lost three straight and clinched a 10th nonwinning record in 13 years. Washington is 0-4 in night games this season. Jacksonville (2-9) at Cleveland (4-7) Remember that almostguaranteed top overall draft pick for Jacksonville next May? It is disappearing quickly as the Jags won two of their last three. Just when the Browns seemed to have a shot at a run to the postseason, theyve dropped two straight within the AFC North. Theyre back to Brandon Weeden at quarterback with Jason Campbell having a concussion. His best target, Josh Gordon, set a team record with 237 yards receiving last week and tied a team mark with 14 catches. Atlanta (2-9) vs. Buffalo (4-7) at Toronto Remember how close the Falcons were to making the Super Bowl last season? One play. Now, they are in strong contention to start off the draft next spring, a shocking collapse. Atlanta was the first NFC team eliminated from the playoff picture. Buffalo is 1-4 in the regular season in games at the Rogers Centre. Not many big-time games Associated PressDenver wide receiver Eric Decker and the Broncos take on the Kansas City Chiefs today. The winner assumes sole possession of first place in the AFC West division.

ALIWATKINS McClatchy Washington BureauWASHINGTON The National Security Agencys collection of information on Americans cellphone and Internet usage reaches far beyond the two programs that have received public attention in recent months, to a presidential order that is older than the Internet itself. Approved by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, Executive Order 12333 (referred to as twelve-triple-three) still governs most of what the NSA does. It is a sweeping mandate that outlines the duties and foreign intelligence collection for the nations 17 intelligence agencies. It is not governed by Congress, and critics say it has little privacy protection and many loopholes. What changes have been made to it have come through guidelines set by the attorney general or other documents. The result is a web of intelligence law so complicated that it stymies even those tasked with interpreting it. As one former executive official said, Its complicated stuff. Confusing though it may be, the order remains the primary authority under which the countrys intelligence agencies conduct the majority of their operations. Neither the office of Attorney General Eric Holder nor that of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper would comment about 12333. Under its provisions, agencies have the ability to function outside the confines of a warrant or court order, if approved by the attorney general. Its Section 2.5 effectively gives the attorney general the right to authorize intelligence agencies to operate outside the confines of judicial or congressional oversight, so long as its in pursuit of foreign intelligence including collecting information of Americans. The Attorney General hereby is delegated the power to approve the use for intelligence purposes, within the United States or against a United States person abroad, of any technique for which a warrant would be required, 12333 reads. Monitoring the actual content of Americans communications still requires a warrant under 12333, but metadata the hidden information about a communication that tells where a person is, who hes communicating with, even the number of credit cards used in a transaction can be swept up without congressional or court approval. The impact of 12333 is enormous and largely unknown. Documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden suggest that less than half of the metadata the NSA has collected has been acquired under provisions of the USA Patriot Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the two laws that have received the most attention for permitting NSA programs. Gen. Keith Alexander, the NSA director, has ratified that impression, saying that the majority of NSA data is collected solely pursuant to the authorities provided by Executive Order 12333. At the time the order was written, the nations intelligence community was dealing with a shattered reputation after decades of widespread abuses. The Church Committee a special congressional panel tasked in the 1970s Despite perception, the Tampa Bay region has made strides in the past five years to address transportation. Trends, revenues and leaders have changed, but the mission has progressed. TIA and the Ports of Tampa and Manatee are undergoing ambitious transformation. HART has implemented this regions first premium rapid transit, with fewer stops and faster end-to-end speed. Transit agencies in Citrus and Hernando counties are working together, considering how to deliver more efficient service and increase value to bi-county populations. And in a first for the region, Citrus and Hernando have agreed to join together in transportation planning for the future. In Pinellas, there is significant discussion and anticipation of a referendum on a package of transit improvements (bus, rail) called Greenlight Pinellas. And FDOT is leading the implementation of construction projects and looking to the future with express lanes, intermodal centers, variably priced tolling, and technologies such as autonomous vehicles. Policy advances by the legislature have lead to significant private sector interest in the delivery of transportation services and facilities: the region has attracted a private bid to build new infrastructure. Whats common in the progress? Its all part of the regions transportation vision articulated in the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authoritys (TBARTA) master plan. Such an expansive vision for 2050 was never assumed to happen all at once, or neatly. Pieces and elements would come together slowly, depending on demand and funding. We hear it all the time: speak in unison, as a region, to articulate the goals and priorities. We dont assume to speak for each community and its unique needs, but we do see the importance of regionalism, to galvanize voices, and move things forward. TBARTA will continue to work with all partners to maintain strategic focus, to elevate the importance of regional connections, advocate for cooperation and consistency, and assist in fighting for funding at a regional level.Bob Clifford is the executive director of TBARTA. Send a check for United Way of Citrus County The Citrus County economy is showing signs of recovery, but the going is slow. One strong indication that we are still struggling can be seen in the annual campaign for the local United Way. Because of a reduction of employees at some of the major companies, the annual fundraising campaign is going slow. It has become a tradition at the Chronicleto each year ask our subscribers to kick in and help with the campaign. This year, I would ask that you consider making a $30 contribution to the effort. In most communities around the country the United Way gets the majority of its funding from the employees with the major companies in town. In Citrus County that means Duke, Publix, the hospitals, the school system, county workers, etc. But Citrus has that unique economic reality whereby more than 50 percent of the local residents are retired and thereby dont have the opportunity to be asked to contribute. Most who are employed work for small retailers and its difficult to have fundraising campaigns and payroll deductions. So today, I am asking you to help. I was involved in the creation of United Way back in 1985 after there was a charity event and the money was stolen. One of the great things United Way brings to the table is that the local board of directors makes sure your contributions are being spent appropriately. We hear so much about fraud and misuse of funds by scam artists that its hard to know how to contribute to help people in need. In our community, the United Way pays close attention to how every dollar is being spent. In recent years, the organization has identified three large problems that need to be addressed in our community. They are income (or lack of it), education and health. All of the funds United Way raises are pumped into nonprofit groups that are out trying to deal with those issues. Most of the issues are See WINDOW/ Page C3 Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW COMMENTARY Section CSUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bob CliffordGUEST COLUMN LIVE UNITED United Way of Citrus County needs y our help for its annual fundraising goal.

OPINION Page C2SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2013 Saving lives through volunteerismThere was an article in the Nov. 15 Chroniclestating the American Cancer Society is seeking volunteers for the Road to Recovery program. These volunteer drivers would provide transportation to and from treatments for cancer patients. About 25 years ago, my mother was a cancer patient who needed radiation treatment, five days a week for five to six weeks. She did not drive, and between my husband and myself there was one car, which he used on his job. I took public transit (bus). Daily cab fare two ways for that length of time would be very costly, and my mother had been a widow for a number of years. Her friends did not drive and all were widows. I had no relatives within a 75-mile radius, and my husbands were all working or did not drive. Unless a neighbor is an extremely close friend of many years, retired, and drives, you cannot think of asking someone such a burdensome favor. Philadelphia had such a program, fortunately, of volunteer drivers to transport cancer patients to and from their treatments. The drivers were all unbelievably kind. Having needed such volunteer drivers desperately ourselves, I hope anyone out there reading this letter, who can, will volunteer. You are literally saving lives by volunteering. The phone number is 800227-2345 and it is a national number. When you call, they will give you the appropriate number for your locale.Margo B. Blum Homosassa Ill never forget the call. It was mid-afternoon and I was engrossed in a writing project on a deadline for publication. My assistant shouted from the next office Jack, this is a call you need to take. I grabbed the phone and said This is Jack, may I help you? The voice was strong and official: Is this Jack Levine, the son of Ruth Levine? I knew right away this was not good news. Im a patrol officer with the Boca Raton Police Department. Your mother has been in an auto accident and shes en route to the hospital. How is she? I gasped. All I can share is shes conscious, but further information will have to be provided by medical personnel. Here is the phone number to call at the emergency admission center. I live in Tallahassee. Boca Raton is a seven-hour drive, and any flights would not get me there any faster. So I was in my car within an hour, heading south. Heres what happened. A new high school was being built just a mile from my moms condo on a road that she used every day for shopping and other errands. During the nearly two years of construction, a series of flashing yellow lights warned drivers of trucks entering or leaving the site. My mom got accustomed to slowing down in the zone, but on this one mid-afternoon the flashing yellow turned red. It was the first day of classes for the brand-new school. She didnt know that. A teen driver zoomed out of the driveway he had a green light and slammed into my Moms car, spinning it into a sign pole. Her head was hit hard against the side window and she sustained impact bruising, but no bone breaks. I visited later that night. She was resting comfortably in her hospital bed, but from that day forward she was never the same. At age 77, without ever having been in a car crash in nearly 50 years of driving, as a result of that accident she would not be able to drive again. Her mental condition was altered by the head trauma, she remained disoriented in matters of space and speed, and her confidence was shot. This unpredictable event triggered a series of symptoms that eventually resulted in severe dementia that lasted for the rest of her life. She passed at age 84. Here is a fact that is a demographic reality: 10,000 people are turning age 65 every day in our nation, and the great majority of them are active drivers. That is why Im dedicated to awareness of AARPs Older Driver Safety Awareness Week, co-hosted by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), scheduled from Dec.2 through Dec.6. This annual awareness week is an initiative that aims to promote an understanding of how important mobility and transportation are to ensuring older adults remain active and safe in their communities. This is essential for ensuring not only the health of the driver, but also is crucial for the wellbeing of their passengers (both adults and children), other drivers, as well as pedestrians. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: one-third of all fatal crashes involving older Americans occur at intersections; thirty-five percent of all traffic violations involving drivers 55-plus are because of the failure to yield the proper rightof-way; one in four traffic violations involving drivers 55-plus involves making an improper left turn; fifteen percent involved an improper lane change; and 10 percent are the result of ignoring a stop sign or traffic light. Its no surprise that the driving experience today is significantly different from even a decade ago changing vehicles, changing technology, changing road rules, and everchanging roadways. That change is often hardest on those who are farthest removed from their first and likely only driving course. AARPs Driver Safety Program works to change that through its nationwide driving refresher course, with 15million graduates to date. Visit www.aarp.org/homegarden/transportation/driver_ safety/ for access to a wealth of resources for older drivers and family members of all ages. Knowing the basics has never been more important, and AARP Driver Safety is a leading authority on best practices for healthy and safe drivers age 50 and older. During Older Driver Safety Awareness Week, key tips are shared on some of the driving challenges that most commonly affect older drivers, including: Best practices for sharing the road with other vehicles, including motorcycles and bicycles. Stopping distance and merging. Proper rules for roundabouts and stop-sign compliance. Techniques for adjusting mirrors to reduce blind spots. I sincerely hope that no one ever receives the life-changing call I had to take on that fateful afternoon when my Moms lifetime of safe driving literally came to a crashing halt. By understanding the challenges our older drivers face, we can all benefit.Jack Levine is founder of the 4Generations Institute in Tallahassee. Email Jack@4Gen.org.

Its been a rough road for the financially distressed public hospital system, sometimes cast as the hapless child of warring, control-hungry parents in this case the Citrus County Hospital Board (CCHB) and the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation. We applauded the governing bodies each time they signaled goodwill and acted cooperatively in the search for the right partner to buy or lease CMH and ensure the future of quality health care for our community. The two boards, apparently emerging from a four-year struggle for control of the health system, seemed to be moving together toward a long-term lease deal with Hospital Corporation of America (HCA). They finally were aligning together behind the goal of putting the communitys best interest first. However, thanks to micromanagement attempts and a resurgence of power-playing, the deal may be in jeopardy. Every day that passes with more infighting instead of solid agreement is costly and dangerous, according to the transaction attorneys. Time is not our friend, one said. We need to move this deal forward. Both boards have agreed to sign a letter of intent with HCA. But the hiccup this time, surfaced by the local attorneys, is timing of the settlement of lawsuits the boards have pending against each other. The CCHBs attorney flatly asserted that refusing to dismiss the suits until the deal finally closes is leverage against the Foundation. Sounds like the war is still on, doesnt it? These are the same people, with the same attorneys, who brought us to the point of needing to sell or lease the public hospital to ensure its continued existence. And these are the same people, with the same attorneys, who are putting at risk everything thats been worked on so diligently over the past several months. Every day that passes devalues the hospital and increases the possibility of losing a willing partner. We say again: Get over it. And get on with it. This is not about you or your attorneys. Its about the people and the community you serve. Do the right thing and move this deal with HCA forward now.

A considerable amount of people spent considerable effort to obtain the Three Sisters property for the specific purpose of preserving it as a refuge and to preserve it in its natural state. It seems he wants a park, like Blue Springs. Evidently he does not know that at Blue Springs, you cant get within 20 feet of a manatee without getting in trouble with the law.

interconnected. Residents who did not complete their education often have trouble earning enough money to survive. And residents who dont earn enough money often scrimp on health care because they cant afford the costs. The key to improve the quality of life in Citrus County is to put more people to work in good jobs so they can help improve their own lives. We published a news story last week in theChroniclethat perfectly documents how this happens. A young woman couldnt get a job because she didnt have the right training. And she had trouble getting to school so she could get the training she needed. Amy Meek, the CEO of our local United Way, went to work and helped the young woman get enrolled at WTI in Inverness so she could become an auto mechanic. Then Ms. Meek worked with the folks at Village Toyota to donate a vehicle so the young woman would have the transportation she needed to get to school. With the barriers knocked down, this young woman is now in charge of her future. Progress happens one family at a time. If you would like to be part of the solutions in Citrus County I would urge you to make a contribution to the United Way. You can send your check to my address at The Chronicle, 1624 N. Meadowcrest Blvd., Crystal River, FL 34429. On this Thanksgiving weekend, we should each remember that we have a lot to be thankful about. With just a little effort, we can help others in our community help themselves through a United Way program. Giving is all about helping people.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle.

Fred 3 replied, Sounds a whole lot like your column, Dad, except on Facebook the readers have a chance to respond. Touch. I thought it would be a flash in the pan, but for almost 10 years, it has continued to go strong. It has captured my wife, my children, my grandchildren and virtually all of my extended family. Thats a story within itself. Cheryl became a Facebook enthusiast and managed to enchant many folks who are or used to be named Brannen. Much quicker than I would have thought, it became as though she was their blood relative and I was just the dull guy to whom she was married. Same goes for my high school classmates, friends I knew growing up, and the rest of humanity. I still dont own a cellphone and, up until a few days ago, I used my computer primarily as a writing or accounting tool, exchanging only the emails necessary to survive in this modern world. I had watched Cheryl do her thing on Facebook and became convinced that it was a timeconsuming black hole, something I could most surely do without. I was certain that if I joined myself to this social media monster, it would be as though I was on a train headed straight for bottomless canyon over which the bad guys had already blown up the trestle. But Cheryl was just having too much fun. I found myself reading over her shoulder. No, I wasnt suspicious, only envious of her laughter and the exchanges that took place between her and other folks I know and love, electronic conversations in which I wasnt included. I finally had to face reality. It is not going away, and, if I cant lick it, Id best join it. Even though I remain concerned that it is a train heading for a wreck with the final destination being some sort of cosmic emptiness, I decided to jump on board. Up until now, the Facebooking world has been kind to me. During my first week, Ive accumulated quite a number of friends. My very first friend was daughter Becky. Her advice when I related that I was scared out of my wits was I should start by taking baby steps. Of course, that brought on delightful memories of her as a toddler when she was most certainly taking baby steps. BethyPooh helped me post my first pictures. And son Fred made no smart-aleck remarks when he accepted me as his Facebook friend, in spite of our exchange on the subject many years ago. So, while I am keeping my eyes on the track ahead and looking for a window to jump out if I see a missing trestle, for right now, Im on the train. Fred Brannen is an Inverness resident and a Chronicle columnist. Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE Sequester originated in White HouseIn a letter to the editor on Nov. 11, Congress responsible for sequester Stan Clewett states that the Congress devised it and a letter published on Oct. 30 incorrectly blames the president. Mr. Clewett you should check the facts. The sequester was proposed by the Obama White House in 2011. Gene Sperling (White House National Economic Council Director), Jack Lew (White House Budget Director), and Rob Nabors (White House Legislative Affairs Director) came up with the idea. The Democrats were trying to increase the debt limit and the Republicans wanted spending cuts to offset any increases. They were getting nowhere so a committee of eight was formed, four members from each party, to come up with a proposal they could vote on. They couldnt come up with a proposal to which they all agreed. The three directors, Sperling, Lew and Nabors then came up with the idea of the sequester. They took it to Sen. Harry Reid who liked the idea. It was to be used as a trigger to get the Republicans to agree to increasing the debt limit without cuts in spending. President Obama bought into the idea of sequestration as a way to get the Republicans to cave into his demands for increased spending without cuts. However, the Republicans surprised him, they agreed to include it in the Budget Control Act of 2011. After the President signed the Act into law., the Obama White House described the Budget Control Act with sequestration included as a win for the economy and budget discipline. This was an idea hatched by the presidents people, approved by Harry Reid and the president as a way of getting what they wanted from the Republicans, increased spending and taxes without any cuts. Both Gene Sperling and Jack Lew have since admitted the idea of sequestration originated in the White House. Then on Feb. 19, Jay Carney admitted that sequestration was an idea that the White House put forward. As for your statement the tea party Republicans are determined to derail the nations economy, they havent had to because the president has done a pretty good job of that. The unemployment rate is still at 7.3 percent; although the actual rate is closer to 14 percent if you count the people that have given up looking for work or are underemployed. Also the Federal Reserve keeps pumping $85 billion a month into the markets to keep the markets artificially high. He has also spent hundreds of billions of dollars on stimulus plans that did little other than make a lot of people wealthy. On top of that, our national debt continues to grow, from $10.3 trillion when he took office to over $17 trillion today. Mr. Clewett you should check out the tea party. Its made up of Republicans, Democrats and Independents who still believe in the Constitution, our Bill of Rights, small government, balanced budgets and being responsible for yourself and your actions. Kind of radical isnt it.Bob Balogh HomosassaEPA has gone too farEditors note: The following letter was sent to Rep. Richard Nugent, Sen. Bill Nelson and Sen. Marco Rubio.As your constituent, I am asking that you stand tough against the thuggish tactics of Obama Administration. Obamas Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is turning up the heat on those who dont play ball, forcing the closure of the nations last remaining lead smelting plant, thereby creating dire consequences for employees, their families and the millions of firearm owners across the country. This is quite simply a continued attack on our Second Amendment rights bringing with it the distinct possibility hard working Americans being collateral damage with their job loss. The nations last remaining lead smelting plant provides lead for ammunition used in firearms nationwide. Without the lead, ammunition will become scarcer and costs will continue to rise a turn of events that is sure to delight the gun-grabbing leftists in Washington. You cannot let that happen. I find it disturbing that the EPA is using thuggish tactics in demanding that the Doe Run Company, which has operated for more than a century, pay $65 million to be in compliance with the EPAs restrictions and also pay a $7 million civil penalty. The EPA laughably gloats that Doe Run has made a business decision to close down the plant, leaving the plants 218 employees and contractors out of work. This is not the hope and change Americans signed on for. The Obama Administration, having been thwarted in their efforts to curtail Second Amendment rights time and time again by principled gun owners, have now tasked the EPA with doing their dirty work by making ammunition scarcer and more expensive. You have taken an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution. As your constituent, I expect you to keep that promise. Like the IRS, the EPA has become an enforcer in the Obama regime and its time for them to go. While maintaining protections for the environment remain important, the EPAs heavy-handed tactics prove that they are not protectors of the environment, but enforcers of the leftist agenda. Send a message you will not tolerate these efforts to bully Americans into intimidation! Call for the defunding of the EPA!Mr. Earl Ehley InvernessDrowning in party politicsApparently, the tea party is the new cause for all that is wrong in Washington according to those that submit to this forum, their inflexibility has caused the failure of the Obamacare website, also the fact that we will not be able to keep our doctors or the insurance policies we were promised we could. Their inflexibility rammed through the legislation that apparently no one read and now they are violating the law they created by making special exceptions. By spending more than what we have the tea party has caused the first ever downgrade of our financial standing in the world. The tea party is also the cause of a budget not being passed because they will not sit down and discuss cuts to their favorite giveaway programs. The chairman of the national tea party was instrumental in all party members voting for a flawed law using a tactic that was originally meant for budget matters only, and has saddled almost 70percent of the population with a law they dont want. Now those terrible tea partiers have changed 225 years of rules to achieve unilaterally the placement of judges in the judiciary to further the far-Right wing agenda. Huh? Oh wait, it wasnt the tea party that has done this? Really? Democrats? No, cmon, they are all about fairness. Sorry tea party, I was misled by those who do nothing more than parrot the Democrat party line.Mike Dragoun Lecanto WINDOWContinued from Page C1 Thank-YouLETTERS Great care at CMHWe are very fortunate to have Citrus Memorial right here in our county especially in the field of cardiology. I recently had a triple bypass led by Dr. Peter Kim and assisted by Dr. V. Kamat, Dr. Nerrella and Dr. Kannam. The nurses and staff were wonderful. Unfortunately, when the name of Citrus Memorial is discussed we are influenced by the headlines of political rhet oric rather than the fine facility we have. The staff was exceptionally kind and they endorse Citrus Memorial by saying if a member of their family needed heart surgery they would bring them here to Dr. Kim, even if they lived in the northeast. Following surgery I was transported to Diamond Ridge for rehab. My private room resembled a hotel suite. The same kindness and care at the hospital was extended at Diamond Ridge. Even though I was happy to return home, the kindness I experienced made it difficult saying goodbye to the wonderful medical staff who saved my life.Pete DElia HernandoMaking a differenceThe Make A Difference Day Post Office Food Drive was a huge success this year. Residents of Citrus County once again responded and donated 41,625 pounds of food to help those in our community who are hungry and need our support in these difficult times. The amount collected was a 6percent increase over last year. The Community Food Bank of Citrus County, Citrus United Basket and the eight participating food pantries who directly benefited from this food drive Beverly Hills Community Church; Citrus County Family Resource Center; Citrus United Basket; DayStar Life Center; Floral City Church of Christ and First Baptist Church of Floral City; The Salvation Army; and We Care Food Pantry are extremely grateful to our residents for your overwhelming generosity and support and the many others who helped make this food drive a success. Food drives of this magnitude need lots of people to make them successful. Our special thanks to the United States Postal Service, each of the Postmasters, their staffs, and the letter carriers who are so supportive of this food drive each year. Of course, we also need to thank the many volunteers who donate their time and efforts behind the scenes to get the food from each of the post offices to the local food pantry in your community and the hundreds of volunteers who work every day at these food pantries to distribute the food. Collectively, we are making a difference in the lives of those who need our communitys support. Thank you again for being part of this great team of volunteers.U.S. Postal ServiceA Howl-o-ween thank youPrecious Paws Rescue would like to thank everyone who participated in our recent Howl-o-ween events. Special thanks go to the Crystal River Mall management and staff, and the management and staff of Piercing Pagoda. Cheryl Burns, manager of Piercing Pagoda, saw to the construction and carry-out of the amazing haunted house, Little Shop of Terrors. Students from various county high schools were the zombies, ghouls and ghosts on hand to scare the good citizens and their children. The attraction was such a success and great fun for the participants and the public. Since the Crystal River Mall management allowed Precious Paws to open an adoption Center three years ago for the rent of $1 a month, we have been continually amazed at the generosity of the people at the mall, not only the mall management and staff, but the other store owners and their staff. Our thanks for their support and friendship cannot be understated. And of course, thank you to all those who donated pet food and money to help our foster animal program.Martha Bowman board member emeritus Precious Paws Rescue Floral CityThanks from Daystar Daystar Life Center thanks the Citrus Hills Golf & Country Club for hosting a Food for Daystar golf tournament that signed up an overflow of 120 people to play on the Oaks course.

Special thanks go to Steve Fischer, golf pro, shop assistants Chris Morabito, Kathy Saltsman and Don McIntyre for ensuring the success of the golf tournament. Also thanks to Laura Lambert (director of catering) and the kitchen staff for putting out a great lunch after the tournament. This is the third year in a row and the success of the tournament couldnt have been done without the aforementioned people.

with investigating intelligence abuses had revealed CIA efforts to cover up the Watergate scandal, the CIAs opening of Americans mail, and the agencys efforts to assassinate Cubas Fidel Castro. Executive Order 12333 was intended to bolster a reeling intelligence community and further define its authority to conduct foreign intelligence gathering. The global telecommunications network didnt exist, and collecting foreign communications posed little risk for Americans data to be swept up in the dragnet. But in the three decades since 12333 was written, global communications have changed dramatically. The order, however, has not. In 1996, when (12333) was 15 years old, we said, Gee, this probably ought to be revised. Now were more than 15 years after that, said John Bellinger, a former legal adviser to the National Security Council during the presidency of George W. Bush. Still, the order hasnt undergone any major change, in part, because its so difficult and complex to change it, he said. Even those who argue that the National Security Act of 1947 requires that Congress be kept fully and currently informed about significant intelligence activities say 12333 activities receive little oversight. The problem, legal experts and lawmakers say, is that only the executive branch and the intelligence agencies that are part of it determines what fully and currently informed means and what details it needs to share with Congress. Theres no clear definition, said House Intelligence Committee member Adam Schiff, DCalif., who recently sparred with fellow committee members over whether the NSA had briefed the panel on its monitoring of German Chancellor Angela Merkels cellphone. We need to have a bigger discussion of what our mutual understanding is of what we want to be informed of. Schiff isnt alone in raising questions about how wellinformed Congress is kept of activities undertaken under 12333 authorities. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, DCalif., who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, has called for a broad review of whats taking place under 12333, noting that the order authorizes phone and email metadata collection beyond what the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act does. Feinstein has consistently defended the NSAs collection of domestic cellphone metadata, saying the program under which it is doing so is overseen by both the courts and Congress. But even she has said the 12333 programs skirt similar protections. The other programs do not (have the same oversight as FISA). And thats what we need to take a look at, she said, adding that her committee has not been able to sufficiently oversee the programs run under the executive order. Twelvetriple-three programs are under the executive branch entirely. Feinstein has also said the order has few, if any, privacy protections. I dont think privacy protections are built into it, she said. Its an executive policy. The executive controls intelligence in the country. Intelligence officials have said that each respective agencys 12333 collection is governed by supplemental guidelines written by the attorney general and that those guidelines protect Americans data. But intelligence officials have admitted that most of those guidelines have not been revisited in decades and that they dont offer the same protections as the metadata collection programs authorized under the Patriot Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. A glimpse of those classified guidelines emerged at a hearing convened earlier this month of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, which Congress created in 2004 to oversee the governments expanded intelligence collection operations, but that until that meeting had never conducted a substantive hearing. Pressing a panel of intelligence community lawyers, board members asked what evidence is required before U.S. intelligence agents are allowed to sift through metadata collected under 12333. They learned that virtually none is required. Jim Dempsey, a member of the board who is the vice president for public policy at the Center for Democracy and Technology, a Washington-based organization encouraging free and open Internet, asked whether it was right that 12333 records can be searched without establishing a reasonable, articulable suspicion, the standard needed for searching records collected under the Patriot Act or FISA. The NSAs deputy general counsel, Rajesh De, acknowledged that that standard might not apply. I think, yeah, he said. But he declined to say what rules might apply, referring by using jargon. I dont know if weve declassified sort of minimization procedures, he said. But there are different rules that apply. Even those rules whatever they are can be broken, both intentionally and unintentionally. When they are, there is no requirement that the violation be reported outside the executive branch. According to an internal memo leaked by Snowden and published in August, the NSA saw more than 2,000 compliance violations with its 12333 programs in the span of a year, from March 2011 to March 2012. For comparison, the agency tracked just over 700 violations in the same period in the telephone and Internet metadata collection programs that have received so much attention. The 12333 violations were not reported to the congressional intelligence committees. Intelligence community leaders have been loath to address 12333 issues when testifying before Congress. During a recent House Judiciary Committee hearing into metadata collections, Director of National Intelligence Clapper refused to answer when asked about specific violations. The subject matter of the hearing was Section 215 and 702, said Clapper, referring to sections of the Patriot Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, respectively. And these violations ... (occurred) under the auspices of Executive Order 12333. Feinstein has said publicly that she thinks more attention needs to be paid to what takes place under 12333. A bill recently approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee would require increased congressional oversight of 12333, including more detailed reporting of what guidelines govern access to information collected under it and violations of those guidelines.

Encrypted email, secure instant messaging and other privacy services are booming in the wake of the National Security Agencys recently revealed surveillance programs. But the flood of new computer security services is of variable quality, and much of it, experts say, can bog down computers and isnt likely to keep out spies. In the end, the new geek wars between tech industry programmers on the one side and government spooks, fraudsters and hacktivists on the other may leave peoples PCs and businesses computer systems encrypted to the teeth but no better protected from hordes of savvy code crackers. Every time a situation like this erupts youre going to have a frenzy of snake oil sellers who are going to throw their products into the street, says Carson Sweet, CEO of San Francisco-based data storage security firm CloudPassage. Its quite a quandary for the consumer. Encryption isnt meant to keep hackers out, but when its designed and implemented correctly, it alters the way messages look.

The revelations are sparking fury and calls for better encryption from citizens and leaders in France, Germany, Spain and Brazil who were Oil little changed above $92 a barrel NEW YORK The price of oil was little changed above $92 a barrel Friday as holidays in the U.S. thinned trading and plentiful crude stocks showed the market was well supplied. By early afternoon in Europe, benchmark U.S. crude for January delivery was up 27 cents at $92.57 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile. Crudes last settlement was Wednesday as floor trading on the Nymex was closed Thursday for Thanksgiving. Oil has declined from about $110 in September due to reduced tensions in the oil-rich Middle East, but above all due to muted demand and high supplies. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils, was down 39 cents at $110.92 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London. Markets subdued amid shortened day LONDON Financial markets were subdued Friday as investors digested a run of economic figures in Europe and awaited clues on the strength of U.S. consumer spending on the first day of the Christmas shopping season. In Europe, the FTSE 100 index of leading British shares closed down 0.1 percent at 6,650.52 while Germanys DAX rose 0.2 percent to 9,405.30. The CAC-40 ended 0.1 percent lower at 4,294.21. The tepid tone markets was evident in the performance of the euro, which was little changed around the $1.3605 mark, even though the figures make it less likely that the ECB will loosen policy further next week a development that could have weighed on Europes single currency. The travel industry is offering promotions large and small for CyberMonday. Some companies are participating for the first time, while others are embracing the online holiday sale in a bigger way than in the past. NEW YORK merican Express Travel is launching its first-ever CyberMonday promotion, with substantial hotel discounts and deals throughout the U.S. and Canada for Jan.13 to 31. The promotions will be bookable at www.amextravel. com beginning Monday at 12:01a.m. and will last 72 hours. Liberty Travel has participated in CyberMonday before, but the volume of deals and their promotion is bigger this year and offers deeper savings. Liberty has assembled 99 deals with up to 65 percent off, bookable Black Friday through CyberMonday, featuring resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico along with cruises and escorted tours. Liberty is also giving a credit of up to $100 on all new bookings made in Liberty Travel stores Friday to Monday.GetaBlack Friday code at http://www. LibertyTravel.com, then present it to an agent to take $50, $75 or $100 off (depending on how much you spend) on trips worth $2,500 or more. Priceline.com is doing a oneday sale beginning at 12:01a.m. Monday promising percent off flights for travel before Dec.18 on select flights from unsold inventory. Spokeswoman Leslie Cafferty says there are a lot of options for those who are there first, advising deal-seekers to start searching early. George Hobica of Airfare Watchdog.com says the hipper newer airlines like Virgin America and JetBlue have participated in CyberMonday airfare sales in the past. But he says they often simply bring out their usual Tuesday or Wednesday promo code sales wrapped up in a CyberMonday package. For cruise-lovers, Royal Caribbean will offer onboard credits of $50, $100 and $200 per stateroom (depending on length of cruise) as well as reduced Beth J. H arpaz A P travel editor deposits for departures Jan.1 or later. The offer applies to bookings with paid deposits made Dec.2 to 4 at www.royalcaribbean.com or via 800-RoyalCaribbean, and it excludes sailings on Quantum of the Seas. The hotel industry is offering a wide variety of online postThanksgiving sales. Anthony Melchiorri, host of the Travel Channel show Hotel Impossible, says the holiday sales can be a win-win for hotels and consumers. Hotels push deals for periods when they have capacity, and consumers can save up to 65 percent. He added that more and more hotels seem to be joining in the promotion as the years go by. Check the websites But check websites for details, as every offer is different. Some deals went live on Thanksgiving or Black Friday; some are available all weekend; some begin at 12:01a.m. CyberMonday Some are for 24 hours, some last several days. Many have blackout dates for popular travel periods. Some hotel deals are straightforward rate offers, others are 10 percent off, some give triple credit-card points or dollaramount credits during a stay toward amenities or services. Some require coupon codes. Among the lodging companies offering some type of online deal are Hotels.com, Starwood hotels, BedandBreakfast.com, Pacifica Hotels, Loews Hotels, Preferred Hotel Group, Omni Hotels and Red Roof Inns.

Reverse mortgages are not for everyone DE AR BRUCE: I have a friend who will be 62 years old in June 2014. She is seriously considering a reverse mortgage. Are reverse mortgages a good idea? Personally, I dont trust anything the government has to offer. Janie, via email DE AR JANIE: First, there is nothing wrong with reverse mortgages. Whether or not they are a good thing for your friend is another matter altogether. Its important to understand what a reverse mortgage is. Simply put, it is a loan against the equity in the home that does not have to be paid until such time as the owner is no longer in the picture or stops living in the home. The fact that most are guaranteed by the government is not a problem from my prospective. You say your friend will be 62, which means she will get a relatively modest amount of money. Why? Because she could live in the house 20 or 30 more years. Generally speaking, I dont think a reverse mortgage is really smart for everyone. I dont think its wise to consider until a person is in her early to mid-70s. I would have to know more about your friend to be more helpful. She must be cash poor. If you want to give me a brief overview of the specifics how much she owes, income, etc. I am happy to comment further. See MONEY/ Page D2 See RACE/ Page D2 Check the websites

A new whiskey created in Kentucky features a blend of age and scarcity that spiked demand and its price. As a result, whiskey fans including celebrities and corporate chiefs are angling to snatch up limited stocks of Michters Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey for nearly $4,000 per bottle. Shots wont come cheap, either, fetching an expected $350 a pop. Limited-edition offerings, with heftier prices than typical stocks, have become commonplace as American whiskey makers dabble in new flavors to lure customers. But the latest introduction by Michters Distillery LLC breaks into a pricing stratosphere that could reverberate across the industry. This is kind of new territory, said industry observer F. Paul Pacult, editor of the newsletter Spirit Journal. Its going to start a whole rush of interest in very highend bourbons, American whiskeys and American spirits. This kind of throws the challenge out. The Michters product will reach shelves Monday in select liquor stores, restaurants, bars or hotels in such places as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Aspen, Colo., Chicago, Palm Beach, Fla., Houston and Boston. The company produced a scant 273 bottles of the blend of whiskeys, some aged up to 30 years, and all are spoken for, its top executive said. Weve been turning down orders, said Michters President Joseph J. Magliocco. DEAR BRUCE: My son is unable to pay back his student loans. He attended a community college last year.

MONEYContinued from Page D1 Let SCORE help you with How To Citrus County SCORE is currently planning business education programs to be offered in 2014. SCORE business classes focus on improving operations of existing businesses as well as supporting the new startups. In the past, SCORE offerings included the Small Business Institute (SBI), lasting 11 sessions, and the two-hour R U Ready classes. The R U Ready classes will continue during 2014; the schedule will soon be announced. R U Ready covers the initial steps to take in the early phase of starting a new business. The SBI will offer educational classes on specific business topics. The new series will be called the How To Conference and Seminar Series. The How To seminars When How To books entered the marketplace, anyone buying one could learn how to build a deck, paint a house, grow a garden and even learn how to lose weight. Experienced people, writers, commercial printers and publishers all contributed there expertise. Experience Matters demonstrated its inherent value. People read and learned and benefitted. As digital technology continued to grow and diversify, CDs provided visuals on how to do almost anything. DVDs followed and quickly improved on the learning process. Behind all of the efforts were experienced people. SCORE is all about Experience Matters What has made SCOREs educational offerings so popular has been what our business mentors bring to the classes. SCORE prides itself on the certified mentor members who bring the single most important element for business success: experience. When a client comes to SCORE for counseling, a mentor is assigned to the client. SCORE fits the client with one or more counselors who have specific experience in the area of business in which the client is interested. Typical business disciplines SCORE mentors have include: Marketing, Education, Sales, Advertising, accounting, engineering, information technology, nonprofit management and more. Our job is to counsel owners. SCORE clients job is to benefit from our experience. When you need surgery, would you seek out a doctor who just graduated, or one with 25 years of experience? SCORE calling for community input SCORE Citrus is calling for community input as to what business topics would serve the interests of small-business owners. We understand small-business people want to increase their bottom lines and expand their revenue-earning capacity. What we want you to do is tell us what you want. Help us help you! What will help you and your business? Obviously, we prefer serious inquires. Here is your opportunity to have a qualified person listen to your needs. Call, email, walk in and ask for a mentor with whom you can confer. The SCORE office is on the Citrus County campus of the College of Central Florida in Lecanto. Office hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday to Thursday. Call 352-2491236. Dr Frederick J Herzog, Ph.D. is the immediate past chairman of Citrus County SCORE. Email fherzog@tampabay.rr.com. Dr Frederick Herzog, PhDEXPERIENCE MATTERS reportedly among those tapped. Both Google and Yahoo, whose data center communications lines were also reportedly tapped, have committed to boosting encryption and online security. Although theres no indication Facebook was tapped, the social network is also upping its encryption systems. Yahoo has never given access to our data centers to the NSA or to any other government agency. Ever, wrote Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer in a Nov. 18 post on the companys Tumblr blog announcing plans to encrypt all of its services by early next year. There is nothing more important to us than protecting our users privacy. For those who want to take matters into their own hands, encryption software has been proliferating across the Internet since the Snowden revelations broke. Heml.is Swedish for secret is marketed as a secure messaging app for your phone. MailPile aims to combine a Gmaillike user friendly interface with a sometimes clunky technique known as public key encryption. Younited hopes to keep spies out of your cloud storage, and Pirate Browser aims to keep spies from seeing your search history. A host of other security-centered programs with names like Silent Circle, RedPhone, Threema, TextSecure, and Wickr all promise privacy. Many of the people behind these programs are well known for pushing the boundaries of privacy and security online. Heml.is is being developed by Peter Sunde, co-founder of notorious file sharing website The Pirate Bay. Finlands F-Secure, home of Internet security expert Mikko Hypponen, is behind Younited. Dreadlocked hacker hero Moxie Marlinspike is the brains behind RedPhone, while Phil Zimmerman, one of the biggest names in privacy, is trying to sell the world on Silent Circle. Even flamboyant file sharing kingpin Kim Dotcom is getting in on the secure messaging game with an encrypted email service. The quality of these new programs and services is uneven, and a few have run into trouble. Nadim Kobeissi, developed encrypted instant messaging service Cryptocat in 2011 as an alternative to services such as Facebook chat and Skype. The Montreal-based programmer received glowing press for Cryptocats ease of use, but he suffered embarrassment earlier this year when researchers discovered an error in the programs code, which may have exposed users communications. Kobeissi used the experience to argue that shiny new privacy apps need to be aggressively vetted before users can trust them. You need to be vigilant, he says. Were two years old and were just starting to reach the kind of maturity I would want. Heml.is also encountered difficulties and angered users when its creators said they wouldnt use open source or publicly auditable code. And Silent Circle abruptly dropped its encrypted email service in August, expressing concern that it could not keep the service safe from government intrusion. What we found is the encryption services range in quality, says George Kurtz, CEO of Irvine, Calif.-based CrowdStrike, a big data, security technology company. I feel safe using some built by people who know what they are doing but others are Johnny-come-latelies who use a lot of buzzwords but may not be all that useful. Even so, private services report thousands of new users, and nonprofit, free encryption services say they have also see sharp upticks in downloads. And for many users, encryption really isnt enough to avoid the U.S. governments prying eyes. Paris-based Bouygues Telecom told its data storage provider Pogoplug in San Francisco that it needs the data center moved out of the U.S. to get out from under the provisions of U.S. law. So this month, PogoPlug CEO Daniel Putterman is keeping Bouygues as a client by shipping a multi-million dollar data center, from cabinets to cables, from California to France. They want French law to apply, not U.S. law, says Putterman, who is also arranging a similar move for an Israeli client. Bouygues spokesman Alexandre Andre doesnt draw a direct connection with the Patriot Act, and says Bouygues arrangement with Pogoplug is driven by concerns over performance and privacy. Andre says Bouygues wants the data stored in France, but it was up to Pogoplug to decide whether this would be done on Bouygues own servers or Pogoplugs. There is a general worry in France over data security, and storing data in France permits us to reassure our clients, Andre says. The arrangement also helps improve the services performance, Andre says, another reason for the move. For Pogoplug, business is booming its garnered close to 1 million paid subscribers in its first year and Putterman says the company is anxious to accommodate concerned clients. And this month, Pogoplug launched a $49 software package called Safeplug that prevents third parties, from the NSA to Google, from learning about a users location or browsing habits. But many warn that encryption offers a false sense of security. RACEContinued from Page D1 ADVERTISING For information about how your business can advertise on this page please call 352-563-5592.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Average U.S. mortgage rates rose modestly this week, a move that makes homebuying a bit less affordable. Still, rates remain near historically low levels. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Wednesday that the average rate on the 30year loan increased to 4.29 percent from 4.22 percent last week. The average on the 15-year fixed ticked up to 3.3 percent from 3.27 percent. Rates have risen nearly a full percentage point since May after the Federal Reserve signaled it might slow its bond purchases by the end of the year. Rates peaked at nearly 4.6 percent in August. But the Fed held off in September and most analysts expect it wont move until next year. The increase in mortgage rates has contributed to a slowdown in home sales over the past two months. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country at the beginning of each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30year mortgage was unchanged at 0.7 point. The fee for a 15-year loan also was unchanged at 0.7 point. ERA agents soar to new highsERA Suncoast Realty is proud to announce the latest production level achieved by some of its agents for 2013. The team of Janice Ayers and Bill Moore has surpassed the $4 million mark in closed sales volume in 2013. Greg Rodrick has surpassed the $2 million dollar mark in closed sales volume in 2013.

Swenson and his partner, Gary Hath, had up to that point was eight. The order also came after business had struggled for most of the year. It was a struggle just to meet payroll, Swenson said. The order has been split into two parts, with the first 77 chairs expected to go out this week. The chairs are black with the front of the top rail of each chair stenciled with a patriotic image, such as the pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock in 1620, the Boston Tea Party of 1773 and Paul Reveres ride in 1775. Swenson said the images were part of the inventory when he and Hath bought the Hitchcock brand. There are hundreds of stencils, all made by Hitchcock employees, but the patriotic ones apparently werent used too often, he said. John Lek, the general manager and senior vice president of the tavern, said he and his partners were aware of the Hitchcock brand and contacted the business because they believed Hitchcock would make the authentic-looking New England-style chairs they wanted. They were on the spot in terms of meeting our needs from a service standpoint, Lek said. We received some sample chairs and they came out beautifully. Lek said the business representatives of the restaurant have not decided on a design for the remaining 75 chairs but he figures it will most likely be another patriotic theme with possibly the restaurants logo. Lek said he hopes the restaurant will open by Jan. 1. While Hitchcock Chair has grown from four to 14 employees in less than three years, Swenson said he has not needed to hire any additional workers for the restaurant project. About 40 percent of all work is outsourced to about a half dozen small long-time manufacturers around New England, making various components. Hitchcock in its prime did the same, he said. Annual revenue is nearly $1 million but so are expenditures so profits thus far are small. Hitchcock in its heyday in the 1970s and s was a $20-million-a-year business making 400 chairs per day. My partner and I have been very careful about spending money, Swenson said, adding that he and Hath are looking to buy some new equipment but are holding off for now. We have no debt so on paper were profitable. They are working with the state Department of Economic and Community Development about expanding at some point but are taking it slow, Swenson said. Much of the manufacturing and assembly is now done at Whiting Mills, a former factory building at the corner of Whiting Street and Holabird Avenue that now houses some 30 to 40 tenants who are primarily artists and craftsmen. But they would like a space where all of the manufacturing, storage and loading docks are on the same floor. It is our intention to stay in Northwest Connecticut, Swenson said, noting that its main retail store remains in the Riverton section of Barkhamsted with Still River Antiques. Officials from both Winsted and Barkhamsted are tickled that Hitchcock is rebounding. Its a wonderful success story, Winsted Economic Development Commission Chairman Richard Labich said. Any time you can attract a company in to our town that in two years has 14 employees, thats the kind of operation that were looking for ... Success attracts success. For Barkhamsted First Selectman Donald S. Stein, the return of Hitchcock is both a nod to the past and the future. Its a big part of our heritage, he said. Anything that creates jobs in town, Id love to see them expand and expand as much as the possibly can. Theyre good people and they make a good product. The more theyre able to do, the happier we all are and the happier they are. While Hitchcock, founded in 1818, benefitted greatly from the postWorld War II boom and the colonial revival, Swenson said the company is now trying to capitalize on the market that is willing to pay a little more for wellmade, high-quality American-made furniture. The average Hitchcock chair retails for $399. Hitchcock recently opened a new showroom in Wilton that it shares with another colonial-style furniture maker, Eldred Wheeler. Swenson said the original Hitchcock company had its own store in Wilton. Its a good match for us because the lines are similar but we dont directly compete, he said of Eldred Wheeler, which makes primarily bedroom furniture. Swenson said Hitchcocks future success lies largely in selling its products wholesale. He said he wants to continue to partner with small mom-andpop furniture stores, which would feature Hitchcock furniture on a section of their showroom floor. Were starting to trend back toward the positive, Swenson said. Weve got a lot more interest from other dealers that want to start buying wholesale so were looking to put out a sale representative that would cover New England.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013E13 E4SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Always there for you.

There are eightPlumeriaspecies in the genus, all from Central American. These tropicals need frost-free zones, such as 10-12 in South Florida, to be planted outside in the garden. They need full sun and dry soil. In Central Florida, they can be grown successfully as a greenhouse container plant. The minimum temperature Plumeriacan tolerate is 50 degrees. The plump, gray-green branches are sparsely arranged in a candelabra-like form, with a dome-shaped crown on mature specimens. Trunks have smooth gray bark.Plumeriatrees lose their leaves in winter. The thick, oblong leaves are lance-shaped to oval, 6 to 12 inches long. Flowers appear at the tips of bare branches in clusters called terminal thyrse. In sub-tropical climates, they start blooming in spring and continue until early winter. Tea service set likely quite old, but collector interest is low Dear John: Could you tell me anything about this childs tea service? It was my mothers, and I just came across it. I had misplaced it for many years. On the bottom, it has the word Germany in a semicircle, underneath what looks like the number 8. What you think? T.D., InternetDear T.D.: A nice sentimental Remember When discovery. The mark on the porcelain childs tea set indicates it was likely made during the early 20th century, making it close to if not more than 100 years old. Germany was in the forefront of the hard paste porcelain industry for a long time. The tea set was made by one of numerous factories producing childrens tea sets. Since it was not made by one of the famous companies of the era, it is considered generic. The missing lid and broken handle also has a downward effect on dollar value. Dear John: This dining room furniture set was given to me by my grandmother. I was just wondering if it has any significant value. M.S., InternetDear M.S.: Your reproduction Federal-style table and chairs appear to be commercial-grade quality. It would be in the used furniture category, better kept and used than sold. Potential dollar value is catch-ascatch-can. Dear John: I found this antique art piece in an attic and wanted to know if you knew if it had any potential value. See attached picture.

earthworms and other soil organisms. Mostly, these are friendly creatures, and nurturing them allows them to thwart unfriendly organisms, such as those causing some plant diseases. Besides disease prevention, when leaves are gobbled up by soil organisms, the nutrients in them are being released. Think of all those minerals taken in by a trees wide, spreading and deep roots. Just falling to the ground all around you, leaves are, pound for pound, about as rich in minerals as is manure. Of course, spreading leaves over the ground or just leaving them there in the first place is not an option for every site. I have spread leaves over a hayfield in which Ive planted chestnut trees. In coming years, these trees will shade out the grass; Im just helping the ground become the leaf-blanketed forest floor that it will eventually turn into. Beneath a row of dwarf apple trees, a leafy mulch keeps weeds from growing and stealing nutrients and water from my small trees. And no need to rake up all the leaves from even a manicured lawn: A mulching mower can grind them up to let enough grass peek through to thrive. If leaves form such a thick blanket that raking is necessary, dont bag them until youve spread all you can under your shrubs and trees, and over your flower beds. Save yourself effort and do something for the plants: At the very least, leave leaves where they drop. Still drowning in leaves? Hold off a bit longer before you pack them into trash bags. Consider packing the leaves into a dense pile for composting. Leaves make excellent, weed-free compost if you let them sit long enough. In a rush? Then mix in some manure, sprinklings of soybean meal or other materials rich in nitrogen. By next year at this time, most of the leaves you spread around or piled up this year will have either settled or evanesced into thin air, becoming mostly carbon dioxide and water. A significant but small portion will endure in the soil, having been transformed to humus. This humus provides long-term benefit to the soil, aerating sticky clays and helping sands sponge up and hold onto water for plant use. Roses, rhododendrons, lawns almost all plants, in fact appreciate any leaves left or applied around their feet. Of course, if everyone follows my advice, Ill no longer be importing neighbors leaves. KURTMOFFETT Republican-AmericanWINSTED, Conn. Hitchcock Chair may still not be the furniture juggernaut it once was but it is gradually making a comeback. Now run by the owners of Still River Antiques, which bought the Hitchcock name in 2010, the nearly 200-year-old Riverton-based company has received its largest order of chairs since going back into operation. Co-owner Rick Swenson said a group of investors contacted him just before Labor Day about a new restaurant they were building in Carlsbad, Calif. Its called the Green Dragon Tavern and Museum and its modeled after a historic Boston bar of the same name. The Boston Tea Party was planned at the original Green Dragon Tavern and Paul Revere was sent from there for his famous ride to Lexington. Historians call it the headquarters of the revolution. One of the investors, Bruce Bartlett, is originally from the Boston area. Swenson said Bartlett is an avid collector of Revolutionary War memorabilia and much of that collection will be on display in the museum. The investors ordered 152 Hitchcock chairs.

Many flower colors have been developed from several different species. All have fragrant, five-petaled flowers. Each petal overlaps the one to its left and tucks under the one to its right.Plumeria rubrais widely cultivated in the tropics and particularly popular in Hawaii. It originated in Central America from Mexico to Panama. Derived from a Latin word,rubrameans reddish. It can grow 20 to 25 feet tall, but remains much shorter in pots. Flowers range from pink to crimson-red on different plants. Flower diameter is about 2 to 3 inches. Petals are longer than their width, with a blunt point at the top. Red colors tend to be solid of one shade. There are many varieties bred for color and flower size, some as large as 4 inches in diameter.Plumeria alba,West Indian Jasmine, originated on Puerto Rico and Caribbean Islands. It grows 20 feet tall and has thick, lanceolate leaves 12 inches long. From Medieval Latin, alba means white. Flowers are white with yellow centers. They span 2.5 inches wide. Another species, White Frangipani, P obtusa,has white flowers with yellow centers. It grows 20 feet tall and remains evergreen in the tropics. It sheds old leaves after the new leaves are grown so always appears leafy and green. Petals are rounded and highly fragrant. One 60 acre, county-run botanical garden I visited on Oahu, Hawaii grows 36 varieties of different Plumeriatrees in Koko Crater, a dry, extinct, volcanic tuff cone. Some flowers are white with pink or yellow centers. Back edges of some are blushed pink, others pure yellow or peach. Propagation is by tip-cutting thumb-thick stems, stripping off the leaves and letting the butt dry thoroughly for two weeks before planting the stems in welldrained, sandy potting media. The stems contain a thick, milky substance do not ingest. Cloned stem cuttings are always the same color as the parent plant. In Hawaii many orchidarium and nursery outlets sell pestand disease-free inspected cuttings sealed in plastic bags to prevent dehydration and contamination. These are ready for shipping or carrying on the plane. A reader recently e-mailed to request redflowered plumeria cuttings because she could not find that color locally.

JANE WEBER/Special to the ChroniclePlumeria rubra is widely cultivated in the tropics and particularly popular in Hawaii. Rubra means reddish.

Peterson, editor in chief of HGTV Magazine. Red may seem like an oh, duh color trend, but there have been years when greens, blues and purples were more popular. This season, were seeing a ton of decorations in candy red. Ikea has a cheery collection of traditional Scandinavian ornaments including folk people, stars and goats. Land of Nods Rising Star tree topper features curly white embroidery on crimson felt. Cranberry red candlesticks from Pier 1 take mercury glass down a different road, while beaded reindeer and snowflakes bring glamour to red velvet and satin throw pillows. (www.ikea.com, www. landofnod.com, www.pier1 .com ) Grandin Roads Zoey chevron-patterned, rubyand-white-resin urn could be used to hold a live or artificial tree, or an assortment of greens. (www.grandinroad.com ) Winter white continues to appeal to holiday decorators; with or without touches of sparkle, its calming, elegant and chic. And dont disregard earthier colors think of bare birch branches hung with gold and silver stars; luxe bowls brimming with copper ornaments; chocolate brown mohair throws.Rethinking the traditionalSince folks are open to reimagining what Christmas can look like, well continue to see a looser interpretation of the traditional tree, says Catie Parrish, associate editor at Wayfair, the online home furnishings outlet. Were starting to see lots of paper and cardboard tabletop trees, and people are getting inventive, creating flat Christmas trees on walls, doors and even fridges. Theyre even decorating them with real ornaments and garlands. For someone who craves the charm of a real tree, even an evergreen branch in a mason jar can lend a hint of the holidays. Ikea has a pop-up cardboard tree that comes with ornaments. At Ellesstudio.blogspot.com, youll find simple instructions on how to turn wine corks, wooden sticks, colored paper and glitter into pretty little trees.ConserveParrish also suggests taking stock of what you already have around the house: Instead of buying every holiday necessity, shopping your home for existing solutions is one of the easiest ways to decorate. A throw blanket makes a cozy tree skirt. Use a scarf as a table runner. Use nature for holiday decoration think backyard branches, berries and pinecones, she says. Fill a vase or candle holder with jingle bells or peppermints. Wrap red, green or metallic ribbon around plain white pillar candles. Instead of candles, top candle stick holders with ornaments or snow globes. Faux fur or knitted throws and pillow covers; throw pillows with snow scenes or deer, antler and deer accessories; and glittery pillows evoke the festive spirit without overt reference. Consider scented candles, bowls of spiced goodies, seasonal music and warm, soft textures; bringing all five senses into play enhances the holiday mood. Some general themes this season:Beach holidayOne of my favorite holiday dcor themes is what were calling aquatic Christmas, says Parrish. Its an extension of the sea-life trend thats been hot in home dcor for a few seasons. Look for octopus and mermaid ornaments, especially in glittery silver and gold finishes. Coastal dwellers know that a beachy palette of blues, greens and whites sets the tone. A tree skirt block-printed with shells and starfish in soft blues and creams evokes a seaside Christmas. Gumps has a collection of painted, blown-glass ornaments that include jellyfish, hermit crabs, stingrays and leopard fish. (www.gumps.com) Find trees, wreaths and garlands crafted of shells and driftwood, as well as clear glass balls filled with soft white sand and tiny shells, at www.seaside inspired.com. If youve got a pile of seashells on the porch, check out Marthastewart.com for a clever way to glitter them up and hang them on the tree.Retro holidayVintage is going to be a popular holiday theme, especially when it comes to typography, says Parrish. Look for throwback fonts on everything from toss pillows to serving trays. Jonathan Adlers Peace pillow has that vibe. (www.jcp.com) And Homegoods has decorative hanging signs done in oldfashioned type with words like Believe. (www.homegoods.com)Holiday imaginationFab.coms Christmas tree offerings include kitschy yet clever cowboy boots, television sets, robots and soda pop bottles rendered in blown glass. Clear ornaments can be filled with whatever strikes your fancy Urban Outfitters has sets of four. (www.urban outfitters.com) And CB2 has fun little satellite, spaceship and Sputnik ornaments. (www. cb2.com) Critters both exotic and domestic abound this season. Land of Nod has felt dog ornaments, as well as rabbits, walrus and unicorns. Tree skirts can be made out of just about anything burlap, ribbons, blankets, even a real vintage skirt. Or instead of a skirt, consider a box painted to look like a gift. Ballard Designs has a resin faux bois basket. (www.ballarddesigns.com) Peterson suggests a tree collar: Its like a colorful little fence around the base of your tree, she says. Crate & Barrel has one made of braided palm fiber by Mexican artisans, in cream and red. (www.crateandbarrel.com) LEE REICH/Associated PressA gardener spreads leaves beneath a row of dwarf apple trees, where a leafy mulch keeps weeds from growing and stealing nutrients and water. LEEREICH Associated PressIf you had driven past my house in recent days, you might have thought you were watching a movie in reverse. There I was, opening trash bags, dumping out leaves and spreading them over the ground. These were bags left curbside for me by neighbors near and far. It does seem crazy, doesnt it, gathering up all these bags and dumping out all those leaves? But dried, dead leaves contain stored energy, the suns energy. Put them on or in the soil, as I have been doing, and they release their energy to support the growth and activity of fungi, CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 E11 E6SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE B ILL D ECKER 352-464-0647 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 V ICTORIA F RANKLIN 352-427-3777 000GRQZ Terms 6 Months or More Social Membership included with all Rentals Terra Vista & Brentwood Rentals!

ahead, urging his four companions to stay 10 meters apart: If you hear me yell Ow! run like hell. That means yellow jackets. Burns whacked away with a machete. The 20-minute walk passed uneventfully, though, apart from some vines that trip and branches that must be climbed over or ducked under. And soon, they were standing by their discovery. Right on the edge of one of the countless marshes in that area, it has four earth and oyster-shell walls, roughly rectangular, perhaps 6 feet high at its highest. In one corner, theres an opening. Could it have been a door, or is it just natural erosion? Inside the walls, the ground is low and muddy, and trees are growing up from the mud. In all, its about 115 by 80 feet. Sais got a tip from a hiker who told him about the strange find in the woods. After struggling through mud and thick vegetation, he saw it for himself. The find intrigues Sais and Burns, though they dont know what it is other than to say that its definitely man-made. They cant know until more research is done, and they say they wont dig without landowner permission. And they dont want to publicize exact locations, to prevent unscrupulous diggers from finding out. The Cowford Archaeological Research Society, its founders say, wants to do it right. Were not just a bunch of fly-by-night amateurs, Burns said. Burns is a registered professional archaeologist, with a masters degree in the field from Colorado State. Sais has worked for decades as a contract archaeologist, and he has a business selling tools of the trade. The site in the marshes could very well be something quite mundane. But they wonder: Could it be the earthworks of a fort ordered built by James Edward Oglethorpe, the British founder of Georgia, in preparation for his failed 1740 siege of the Spanish in St. Augustine? Theyve been looking for it a few hundred years, Sais said. We think weve found it. He can picture it: They could get 200 men in here, shoulder-to-shoulder, with flintlock rifles, if the Spanish attacked them. Archaeologists dream of such discoveries. And as Sais, a garrulous 60-yearold, likes to say: Everywhere you walk in Jacksonville, historys under your feet. At the LaVilla site, searchers have found perfectly intact glass bottles used for medicines. A Union soldiers uniform button. A fancy crystal handle and nice ceramic pieces that might have been used by officers. Recently, out came two telling finds: First, the casing for the bullet for a Spencer rifle. A short while later, up popped a metal rod with a circular handle. Members agreed: It was most likely used to clean the fuse hole of a cannon. In LaVilla, they took clues from an 1864 map of Jacksonville, which had the location of Ft. Hatch, just outside the city walls. They figured out where it might be today, asked permission from the private landowner, and dug a few holes, each carefully mapped and logged. Everything thats found at the LaVilla dig or the possible marsh site will be given, Sais said, to the landowners. No ones getting paid for this work. Not Sais, not Burns, not the eager amateurs who pitch in to dig. The Cowford Archaeological Research Society named after an early, descriptive name for Jacksonville began in April. Its a nonprofit group that has dreams of one day starting a museum and having schoolchildren and the disabled helping on their digs. Corporate sponsorship to defray some of the costs of digs would be nice, too. At the LaVilla site, Dave Gentkowski, retired from the Navy, brought his 12year-old home-schooled son, Lorenzo, for a field trip. They pitched in, digging and sifting and signing Cowford membership cards. Gentkowski grew up near the Manassas battlefields in Virginia, which sparked in him an interest in archaeology. He once found a trigger guard for a musket, and a neighbor found a U.S. Cavalry belt buckle. Lorenzo said he was happy to be there. I was hoping Id find a cannon, he said. Confederate gold, said his dad. That sense of discovery drives the searchers, who look past the humble parking lot and see a bustling Civil War fort. Its all there, they say, under their boots. Theres enough work for us to do for the next 10,000 years is another thing Sais likes to say. And he and his amateur volunteers are just getting started. MATTSOERGELThe Florida TimesUnionJACKSONVILLE Its a nothing-special grass parking lot in LaVilla, on the edge of downtown. But the members of a fledgling group called the Cowford Archaeological Research Society see it as something quite grand. To them, this nondescript patch of land is beginning to look like the site of a lost Union fort, built in 1864 just outside the city walls of old Jacksonville. Theyve dug, and theyve found intriguing items from that era, including what they say is a nicely preserved shell casing for a Spencer rifle, which was used by Union troops. Exciting stuff. But for members of the mostly amateur archaeological group, theres a mystery in the citys vast northern marshes that they think could be far older and even more important. But its going to take bit of a hike to get there. This is some serious jungle: Dean M. Sais and George Burns, founders of the Cowford group, handed out plastic leg coverings, to guard against snakebites. There was extra water.

Red is once again a popular color this holiday season, after a few years of being on the outs.Associated Press KIMCOOK Associated PressFollowing the general trend in home dcor, holiday trim and accessories this year are an eclectic mix of traditional and non-traditional colors and styles. Remember when blue or pastel pink ornaments were the height of kitsch? Now theyre mainstream, elegant options. And while red and green are popular hues, they are not married to each other.

ahead, urging his four companions to stay 10 meters apart: If you hear me yell Ow! run like hell. That means yellow jackets. Burns whacked away with a machete. The 20-minute walk passed uneventfully, though, apart from some vines that trip and branches that must be climbed over or ducked under. And soon, they were standing by their discovery. Right on the edge of one of the countless marshes in that area, it has four earth and oyster-shell walls, roughly rectangular, perhaps 6 feet high at its highest. In one corner, theres an opening. Could it have been a door, or is it just natural erosion? Inside the walls, the ground is low and muddy, and trees are growing up from the mud. In all, its about 115 by 80 feet. Sais got a tip from a hiker who told him about the strange find in the woods. After struggling through mud and thick vegetation, he saw it for himself. The find intrigues Sais and Burns, though they dont know what it is other than to say that its definitely man-made. They cant know until more research is done, and they say they wont dig without landowner permission. And they dont want to publicize exact locations, to prevent unscrupulous diggers from finding out. The Cowford Archaeological Research Society, its founders say, wants to do it right. Were not just a bunch of fly-by-night amateurs, Burns said. Burns is a registered professional archaeologist, with a masters degree in the field from Colorado State. Sais has worked for decades as a contract archaeologist, and he has a business selling tools of the trade. The site in the marshes could very well be something quite mundane. But they wonder: Could it be the earthworks of a fort ordered built by James Edward Oglethorpe, the British founder of Georgia, in preparation for his failed 1740 siege of the Spanish in St. Augustine? Theyve been looking for it a few hundred years, Sais said. We think weve found it. He can picture it: They could get 200 men in here, shoulder-to-shoulder, with flintlock rifles, if the Spanish attacked them. Archaeologists dream of such discoveries. And as Sais, a garrulous 60-yearold, likes to say: Everywhere you walk in Jacksonville, historys under your feet. At the LaVilla site, searchers have found perfectly intact glass bottles used for medicines. A Union soldiers uniform button. A fancy crystal handle and nice ceramic pieces that might have been used by officers. Recently, out came two telling finds: First, the casing for the bullet for a Spencer rifle. A short while later, up popped a metal rod with a circular handle. Members agreed: It was most likely used to clean the fuse hole of a cannon. In LaVilla, they took clues from an 1864 map of Jacksonville, which had the location of Ft. Hatch, just outside the city walls. They figured out where it might be today, asked permission from the private landowner, and dug a few holes, each carefully mapped and logged. Everything thats found at the LaVilla dig or the possible marsh site will be given, Sais said, to the landowners. No ones getting paid for this work. Not Sais, not Burns, not the eager amateurs who pitch in to dig. The Cowford Archaeological Research Society named after an early, descriptive name for Jacksonville began in April. Its a nonprofit group that has dreams of one day starting a museum and having schoolchildren and the disabled helping on their digs. Corporate sponsorship to defray some of the costs of digs would be nice, too. At the LaVilla site, Dave Gentkowski, retired from the Navy, brought his 12year-old home-schooled son, Lorenzo, for a field trip. They pitched in, digging and sifting and signing Cowford membership cards. Gentkowski grew up near the Manassas battlefields in Virginia, which sparked in him an interest in archaeology. He once found a trigger guard for a musket, and a neighbor found a U.S. Cavalry belt buckle. Lorenzo said he was happy to be there. I was hoping Id find a cannon, he said. Confederate gold, said his dad. That sense of discovery drives the searchers, who look past the humble parking lot and see a bustling Civil War fort. Its all there, they say, under their boots. Theres enough work for us to do for the next 10,000 years is another thing Sais likes to say. And he and his amateur volunteers are just getting started. MATTSOERGELThe Florida TimesUnionJACKSONVILLE Its a nothing-special grass parking lot in LaVilla, on the edge of downtown. But the members of a fledgling group called the Cowford Archaeological Research Society see it as something quite grand. To them, this nondescript patch of land is beginning to look like the site of a lost Union fort, built in 1864 just outside the city walls of old Jacksonville. Theyve dug, and theyve found intriguing items from that era, including what they say is a nicely preserved shell casing for a Spencer rifle, which was used by Union troops. Exciting stuff. But for members of the mostly amateur archaeological group, theres a mystery in the citys vast northern marshes that they think could be far older and even more important. But its going to take bit of a hike to get there. This is some serious jungle: Dean M. Sais and George Burns, founders of the Cowford group, handed out plastic leg coverings, to guard against snakebites. There was extra water.

The figural pieces on the lower section have a storybook theme feeling to them. In order to help you, I need several good clear photos, the full dimensions and any marks or labels. Dear John: My grandson recently bought this in a shop in Korea. Not knowing the language of the shop clerk, he is guessing that it is a fish scaler. We are interested in any information you might have on this object. J. & J.K., InternetDear J. & J.K.: The photograph is not very clear. All I can say about the item is there is no specific collector interest. I have no idea if the item is a Korean fish scaler.

Peterson, editor in chief of HGTV Magazine. Red may seem like an oh, duh color trend, but there have been years when greens, blues and purples were more popular. This season, were seeing a ton of decorations in candy red. Ikea has a cheery collection of traditional Scandinavian ornaments including folk people, stars and goats. Land of Nods Rising Star tree topper features curly white embroidery on crimson felt. Cranberry red candlesticks from Pier 1 take mercury glass down a different road, while beaded reindeer and snowflakes bring glamour to red velvet and satin throw pillows. (www.ikea.com, www. landofnod.com, www.pier1 .com ) Grandin Roads Zoey chevron-patterned, rubyand-white-resin urn could be used to hold a live or artificial tree, or an assortment of greens. (www.grandinroad.com ) Winter white continues to appeal to holiday decorators; with or without touches of sparkle, its calming, elegant and chic. And dont disregard earthier colors think of bare birch branches hung with gold and silver stars; luxe bowls brimming with copper ornaments; chocolate brown mohair throws.Rethinking the traditionalSince folks are open to reimagining what Christmas can look like, well continue to see a looser interpretation of the traditional tree, says Catie Parrish, associate editor at Wayfair, the online home furnishings outlet. Were starting to see lots of paper and cardboard tabletop trees, and people are getting inventive, creating flat Christmas trees on walls, doors and even fridges. Theyre even decorating them with real ornaments and garlands. For someone who craves the charm of a real tree, even an evergreen branch in a mason jar can lend a hint of the holidays. Ikea has a pop-up cardboard tree that comes with ornaments. At Ellesstudio.blogspot.com, youll find simple instructions on how to turn wine corks, wooden sticks, colored paper and glitter into pretty little trees.ConserveParrish also suggests taking stock of what you already have around the house: Instead of buying every holiday necessity, shopping your home for existing solutions is one of the easiest ways to decorate. A throw blanket makes a cozy tree skirt. Use a scarf as a table runner. Use nature for holiday decoration think backyard branches, berries and pinecones, she says. Fill a vase or candle holder with jingle bells or peppermints. Wrap red, green or metallic ribbon around plain white pillar candles. Instead of candles, top candle stick holders with ornaments or snow globes. Faux fur or knitted throws and pillow covers; throw pillows with snow scenes or deer, antler and deer accessories; and glittery pillows evoke the festive spirit without overt reference. Consider scented candles, bowls of spiced goodies, seasonal music and warm, soft textures; bringing all five senses into play enhances the holiday mood. Some general themes this season:Beach holidayOne of my favorite holiday dcor themes is what were calling aquatic Christmas, says Parrish. Its an extension of the sea-life trend thats been hot in home dcor for a few seasons. Look for octopus and mermaid ornaments, especially in glittery silver and gold finishes. Coastal dwellers know that a beachy palette of blues, greens and whites sets the tone. A tree skirt block-printed with shells and starfish in soft blues and creams evokes a seaside Christmas. Gumps has a collection of painted, blown-glass ornaments that include jellyfish, hermit crabs, stingrays and leopard fish. (www.gumps.com) Find trees, wreaths and garlands crafted of shells and driftwood, as well as clear glass balls filled with soft white sand and tiny shells, at www.seaside inspired.com. If youve got a pile of seashells on the porch, check out Marthastewart.com for a clever way to glitter them up and hang them on the tree.Retro holidayVintage is going to be a popular holiday theme, especially when it comes to typography, says Parrish. Look for throwback fonts on everything from toss pillows to serving trays. Jonathan Adlers Peace pillow has that vibe. (www.jcp.com) And Homegoods has decorative hanging signs done in oldfashioned type with words like Believe. (www.homegoods.com)Holiday imaginationFab.coms Christmas tree offerings include kitschy yet clever cowboy boots, television sets, robots and soda pop bottles rendered in blown glass. Clear ornaments can be filled with whatever strikes your fancy Urban Outfitters has sets of four. (www.urban outfitters.com) And CB2 has fun little satellite, spaceship and Sputnik ornaments. (www. cb2.com) Critters both exotic and domestic abound this season. Land of Nod has felt dog ornaments, as well as rabbits, walrus and unicorns. Tree skirts can be made out of just about anything burlap, ribbons, blankets, even a real vintage skirt. Or instead of a skirt, consider a box painted to look like a gift. Ballard Designs has a resin faux bois basket. (www.ballarddesigns.com) Peterson suggests a tree collar: Its like a colorful little fence around the base of your tree, she says. Crate & Barrel has one made of braided palm fiber by Mexican artisans, in cream and red. (www.crateandbarrel.com) LEE REICH/Associated PressA gardener spreads leaves beneath a row of dwarf apple trees, where a leafy mulch keeps weeds from growing and stealing nutrients and water. LEEREICH Associated PressIf you had driven past my house in recent days, you might have thought you were watching a movie in reverse. There I was, opening trash bags, dumping out leaves and spreading them over the ground. These were bags left curbside for me by neighbors near and far. It does seem crazy, doesnt it, gathering up all these bags and dumping out all those leaves? But dried, dead leaves contain stored energy, the suns energy. Put them on or in the soil, as I have been doing, and they release their energy to support the growth and activity of fungi, CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 E11 E6SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE B ILL D ECKER 352-464-0647 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 V ICTORIA F RANKLIN 352-427-3777 000GRQZ Terms 6 Months or More Social Membership included with all Rentals Terra Vista & Brentwood Rentals!

earthworms and other soil organisms. Mostly, these are friendly creatures, and nurturing them allows them to thwart unfriendly organisms, such as those causing some plant diseases. Besides disease prevention, when leaves are gobbled up by soil organisms, the nutrients in them are being released. Think of all those minerals taken in by a trees wide, spreading and deep roots. Just falling to the ground all around you, leaves are, pound for pound, about as rich in minerals as is manure. Of course, spreading leaves over the ground or just leaving them there in the first place is not an option for every site. I have spread leaves over a hayfield in which Ive planted chestnut trees. In coming years, these trees will shade out the grass; Im just helping the ground become the leaf-blanketed forest floor that it will eventually turn into. Beneath a row of dwarf apple trees, a leafy mulch keeps weeds from growing and stealing nutrients and water from my small trees. And no need to rake up all the leaves from even a manicured lawn: A mulching mower can grind them up to let enough grass peek through to thrive. If leaves form such a thick blanket that raking is necessary, dont bag them until youve spread all you can under your shrubs and trees, and over your flower beds. Save yourself effort and do something for the plants: At the very least, leave leaves where they drop. Still drowning in leaves? Hold off a bit longer before you pack them into trash bags. Consider packing the leaves into a dense pile for composting. Leaves make excellent, weed-free compost if you let them sit long enough. In a rush? Then mix in some manure, sprinklings of soybean meal or other materials rich in nitrogen. By next year at this time, most of the leaves you spread around or piled up this year will have either settled or evanesced into thin air, becoming mostly carbon dioxide and water. A significant but small portion will endure in the soil, having been transformed to humus. This humus provides long-term benefit to the soil, aerating sticky clays and helping sands sponge up and hold onto water for plant use. Roses, rhododendrons, lawns almost all plants, in fact appreciate any leaves left or applied around their feet. Of course, if everyone follows my advice, Ill no longer be importing neighbors leaves. KURTMOFFETT Republican-AmericanWINSTED, Conn. Hitchcock Chair may still not be the furniture juggernaut it once was but it is gradually making a comeback. Now run by the owners of Still River Antiques, which bought the Hitchcock name in 2010, the nearly 200-year-old Riverton-based company has received its largest order of chairs since going back into operation. Co-owner Rick Swenson said a group of investors contacted him just before Labor Day about a new restaurant they were building in Carlsbad, Calif. Its called the Green Dragon Tavern and Museum and its modeled after a historic Boston bar of the same name. The Boston Tea Party was planned at the original Green Dragon Tavern and Paul Revere was sent from there for his famous ride to Lexington. Historians call it the headquarters of the revolution. One of the investors, Bruce Bartlett, is originally from the Boston area. Swenson said Bartlett is an avid collector of Revolutionary War memorabilia and much of that collection will be on display in the museum. The investors ordered 152 Hitchcock chairs.

Many flower colors have been developed from several different species. All have fragrant, five-petaled flowers. Each petal overlaps the one to its left and tucks under the one to its right.Plumeria rubrais widely cultivated in the tropics and particularly popular in Hawaii. It originated in Central America from Mexico to Panama. Derived from a Latin word,rubrameans reddish. It can grow 20 to 25 feet tall, but remains much shorter in pots. Flowers range from pink to crimson-red on different plants. Flower diameter is about 2 to 3 inches. Petals are longer than their width, with a blunt point at the top. Red colors tend to be solid of one shade. There are many varieties bred for color and flower size, some as large as 4 inches in diameter.Plumeria alba,West Indian Jasmine, originated on Puerto Rico and Caribbean Islands. It grows 20 feet tall and has thick, lanceolate leaves 12 inches long. From Medieval Latin, alba means white. Flowers are white with yellow centers. They span 2.5 inches wide. Another species, White Frangipani, P obtusa,has white flowers with yellow centers. It grows 20 feet tall and remains evergreen in the tropics. It sheds old leaves after the new leaves are grown so always appears leafy and green. Petals are rounded and highly fragrant. One 60 acre, county-run botanical garden I visited on Oahu, Hawaii grows 36 varieties of different Plumeriatrees in Koko Crater, a dry, extinct, volcanic tuff cone. Some flowers are white with pink or yellow centers. Back edges of some are blushed pink, others pure yellow or peach. Propagation is by tip-cutting thumb-thick stems, stripping off the leaves and letting the butt dry thoroughly for two weeks before planting the stems in welldrained, sandy potting media. The stems contain a thick, milky substance do not ingest. Cloned stem cuttings are always the same color as the parent plant. In Hawaii many orchidarium and nursery outlets sell pestand disease-free inspected cuttings sealed in plastic bags to prevent dehydration and contamination. These are ready for shipping or carrying on the plane. A reader recently e-mailed to request redflowered plumeria cuttings because she could not find that color locally. Realisticlooking Plumeria flowers now adorn the right side of my Tilley hats.Jane Weber is a professional gardener and consultant. Semi-retired, she grows thousands of native plants.

JANE WEBER/Special to the ChroniclePlumeria rubra is widely cultivated in the tropics and particularly popular in Hawaii. Rubra means reddish. Plumeria plants are named in honor of Charles Plumier, 1646-1706, a French traveler and writer who first described these tropical plants formerly not known to European scientists.

Swenson and his partner, Gary Hath, had up to that point was eight. The order also came after business had struggled for most of the year. It was a struggle just to meet payroll, Swenson said. The order has been split into two parts, with the first 77 chairs expected to go out this week. The chairs are black with the front of the top rail of each chair stenciled with a patriotic image, such as the pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock in 1620, the Boston Tea Party of 1773 and Paul Reveres ride in 1775. Swenson said the images were part of the inventory when he and Hath bought the Hitchcock brand. There are hundreds of stencils, all made by Hitchcock employees, but the patriotic ones apparently werent used too often, he said. John Lek, the general manager and senior vice president of the tavern, said he and his partners were aware of the Hitchcock brand and contacted the business because they believed Hitchcock would make the authentic-looking New England-style chairs they wanted. They were on the spot in terms of meeting our needs from a service standpoint, Lek said. We received some sample chairs and they came out beautifully. Lek said the business representatives of the restaurant have not decided on a design for the remaining 75 chairs but he figures it will most likely be another patriotic theme with possibly the restaurants logo. Lek said he hopes the restaurant will open by Jan. 1. While Hitchcock Chair has grown from four to 14 employees in less than three years, Swenson said he has not needed to hire any additional workers for the restaurant project. About 40 percent of all work is outsourced to about a half dozen small long-time manufacturers around New England, making various components. Hitchcock in its prime did the same, he said. Annual revenue is nearly $1 million but so are expenditures so profits thus far are small. Hitchcock in its heyday in the 1970s and s was a $20-million-a-year business making 400 chairs per day. My partner and I have been very careful about spending money, Swenson said, adding that he and Hath are looking to buy some new equipment but are holding off for now. We have no debt so on paper were profitable. They are working with the state Department of Economic and Community Development about expanding at some point but are taking it slow, Swenson said. Much of the manufacturing and assembly is now done at Whiting Mills, a former factory building at the corner of Whiting Street and Holabird Avenue that now houses some 30 to 40 tenants who are primarily artists and craftsmen. But they would like a space where all of the manufacturing, storage and loading docks are on the same floor. It is our intention to stay in Northwest Connecticut, Swenson said, noting that its main retail store remains in the Riverton section of Barkhamsted with Still River Antiques. Officials from both Winsted and Barkhamsted are tickled that Hitchcock is rebounding. Its a wonderful success story, Winsted Economic Development Commission Chairman Richard Labich said. Any time you can attract a company in to our town that in two years has 14 employees, thats the kind of operation that were looking for ... Success attracts success. For Barkhamsted First Selectman Donald S. Stein, the return of Hitchcock is both a nod to the past and the future. Its a big part of our heritage, he said. Anything that creates jobs in town, Id love to see them expand and expand as much as the possibly can. Theyre good people and they make a good product. The more theyre able to do, the happier we all are and the happier they are. While Hitchcock, founded in 1818, benefitted greatly from the postWorld War II boom and the colonial revival, Swenson said the company is now trying to capitalize on the market that is willing to pay a little more for wellmade, high-quality American-made furniture. The average Hitchcock chair retails for $399. Hitchcock recently opened a new showroom in Wilton that it shares with another colonial-style furniture maker, Eldred Wheeler. Swenson said the original Hitchcock company had its own store in Wilton. Its a good match for us because the lines are similar but we dont directly compete, he said of Eldred Wheeler, which makes primarily bedroom furniture. Swenson said Hitchcocks future success lies largely in selling its products wholesale. He said he wants to continue to partner with small mom-andpop furniture stores, which would feature Hitchcock furniture on a section of their showroom floor. Were starting to trend back toward the positive, Swenson said. Weve got a lot more interest from other dealers that want to start buying wholesale so were looking to put out a sale representative that would cover New England.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013E13 E4SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Always there for you.

There are eightPlumeriaspecies in the genus, all from Central American. These tropicals need frost-free zones, such as 10-12 in South Florida, to be planted outside in the garden. They need full sun and dry soil. In Central Florida, they can be grown successfully as a greenhouse container plant. The minimum temperature Plumeriacan tolerate is 50 degrees. The plump, gray-green branches are sparsely arranged in a candelabra-like form, with a dome-shaped crown on mature specimens. Trunks have smooth gray bark.Plumeriatrees lose their leaves in winter. The thick, oblong leaves are lance-shaped to oval, 6 to 12 inches long. Flowers appear at the tips of bare branches in clusters called terminal thyrse. In sub-tropical climates, they start blooming in spring and continue until early winter. Tea service set likely quite old, but collector interest is low Dear John: Could you tell me anything about this childs tea service? It was my mothers, and I just came across it. I had misplaced it for many years. On the bottom, it has the word Germany in a semicircle, underneath what looks like the number 8. What you think? T.D., InternetDear T.D.: A nice sentimental Remember When discovery. The mark on the porcelain childs tea set indicates it was likely made during the early 20th century, making it close to if not more than 100 years old. Germany was in the forefront of the hard paste porcelain industry for a long time. The tea set was made by one of numerous factories producing childrens tea sets. Since it was not made by one of the famous companies of the era, it is considered generic. The missing lid and broken handle also has a downward effect on dollar value. Dear John: This dining room furniture set was given to me by my grandmother. I was just wondering if it has any significant value. M.S., InternetDear M.S.: Your reproduction Federal-style table and chairs appear to be commercial-grade quality. It would be in the used furniture category, better kept and used than sold. Potential dollar value is catch-ascatch-can. Dear John: I found this antique art piece in an attic and wanted to know if you knew if it had any potential value. See attached picture.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Average U.S. mortgage rates rose modestly this week, a move that makes homebuying a bit less affordable. Still, rates remain near historically low levels. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Wednesday that the average rate on the 30year loan increased to 4.29 percent from 4.22 percent last week. The average on the 15-year fixed ticked up to 3.3 percent from 3.27 percent. Rates have risen nearly a full percentage point since May after the Federal Reserve signaled it might slow its bond purchases by the end of the year. Rates peaked at nearly 4.6 percent in August. But the Fed held off in September and most analysts expect it wont move until next year. The increase in mortgage rates has contributed to a slowdown in home sales over the past two months. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country at the beginning of each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30year mortgage was unchanged at 0.7 point. The fee for a 15-year loan also was unchanged at 0.7 point.

NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS If you knew Miss Mattie Mae Pipgras, or even if you just met her, youd quickly learn that she was the first Miss Citrus County. She always worked that early into the conversation, which always made me chuckle, said the Rev. Max Wilkins, former pastor of First United Methodist Church in Inverness. She was strikingly beautiful all of her life, but she was not vain or overly proud in the least. I think she was proud of being the first Miss Citrus County because she loved Citrus County and was proud of Inverness as her hometown. Inverness native Mattie Mae Dixon Pipgras died Nov.23. She was 99. The seventh and youngest child born to John James and Emma Georgia Cooper, Miss Mattie Mae, as she was called, was a Citrus High School graduate, also a cheerleader and on staff at the Whirlwind, the schools newspaper. In 1933 at age 19, she was chosen as the first Miss Citrus County. About 20 years ago, they invited all of us old queens of the Miss Citrus County contest, and there she was, recalled Jenny Morelli. I got to stand next to her on the stage, and it was such an honor. When my family moved to Inverness in 1957, Miss Mattie Mae was one of the first people my parents met, and as a child she was my role model. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word to say to everyone. Morelli remembered Miss Mattie Mae as being a sweet, loving, kind woman who especially loved children. My mom had a day care, and Miss Mattie Mae used to come over and visit with all the kids, Morelli said.

Americans dont trust each other anymore. Were not talking about the loss of faith in big institutions such as the government, the church or Wall Street, which fluctuates with events. For four decades, a gut-level ingredient of democracy trust in the other fellow has been quietly draining away. These days, only onethird of Americans say most people can be trusted. Half felt that way in 1972, when the General Social Survey first asked the question. Forty years later, a record high of nearly twothirds say you cant be too careful in dealing with people. An AP-GfK poll conducted last month found that Americans are suspicious of each other in everyday encounters. Less than one-third expressed a lot of trust in clerks who swipe their credit cards, drivers on the road, or people they meet when traveling. Im leery of everybody, said Bart Muraw ski, 27, of Albany, N.Y. Cau tion is always a factor. Does it matter that Americans are suspicious of one another? Yes, say worried political and social scientists. Whats known as social trust brings good things. Expecting news MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleNew father Bob Ernstes kisses the forehead of his newborn daughter, Jayden Audrey Ernstes, on Tuesday afternoon in the Citrus Memorial hospital obstetrics nursery. Grandparents Tina Wilderson, left, and Patty Ernstes look on to the new addition to their families. Citrus Memorial hopes HCA delivers on baby services MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS ACitrus County woman giving birth 50 years ago had to do so in Brooksville, or Ocala or her home. Then a group of community leaders joined together, and in 1957 Citrus Memorial Hospital was born, a place to provide local health care including much-sought-after obstetrics. To Joe Brannen, whose father George was a hospital cofounder, the obstetrics unit has special meaning. For those of us who had family members born before our own hospital, we realize how important it is to have that option, said Brannen, a member of the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation board of directors. My nephews were born here. My grandchildren were born here. Weve got an obstetrics unit were proud of. Today, Citrus Memorial delivers more than 600 babies a year. And hospital backers like Brannen hope that trend continues if and when Hospital Corporation of America takes over sometime next year. Both the foundation and Citrus County Hospital Board are expected to sign a non-binding letter of intent with HCA in midDecember. That is the legal mechanism that begins about four or five months of HCAs due diligence of the hospital, followed by a definitive agreement and, finally, a long-term lease contract. The letter of intent, or LOI, is a framework document that includes expectations on behalf of both HCA and the hospital boards. HCA, in its proposal, offered to keep core services in place for five years. The hospital boards, however, identified three things they want in place for the length of the lease. They are: Citrus Memorial remains an acute-care hospital in Inverness. The hospital keeps its emergency room. The obstetrics department stays in place. The hospital boards transaction consultants, however, have warned that HCA may refuse any request that doesnt fit the companys business model. The obstetrics department, hospital officials acknowledge, is not a money-maker. In fact, its the opposite. Generally, O.B. services in safety net-type hospitals community hospitals, like ours tend to be financially draining, Citrus Memorial Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty said. Beaty said 70 percent of Citrus Memorials obstetrics patients are on Medicaid, where the reimbursement isnt close See EXPECTING/ Page A5 Chronicle fileRefuge Day in Citrus County will be the second Saturday in December.

A society where its easier to compromise or make a deal. Where people are willing to work with those who are different from them for the common good. Where trust appears to promote economic growth. Distrust, on the other hand, seems to encourage corruption. At the least, it diverts energy to counting change, drawing up 100-page legal contracts and building gated communities. Even the rancor and gridlock in politics might stem from the effects of an increasingly distrustful citizenry, said April K. Clark, a Purdue University political scientist and public opinion researcher. Its like the rules of the game, Clark said. When trust is low, the way we react and behave with each other becomes less civil. Theres no easy fix. In fact, some studies suggest its too late for most Americans alive today to become more trusting. That research says the basis for a persons lifetime trust levels is set by his or her midtwenties and unlikely to change, other than in some unifying crucible such as a world war. People do get a little more trusting as they age. But beginning with the baby boomers, each generation has started off adulthood less trusting than those who came before them. The best hope for creating a more trusting nation may be figuring out how to inspire todays youth, perhaps united by their hightech gadgets, to trust the way previous generations did in simpler times. There are still trusters around to set an example. Pennsylvania farmer Dennis Hess is one. He runs an unattended farm stand on the honor system. Customers select their produce, tally their bills and drop the money into a slot, making change from an unlocked cashbox. Both regulars and tourists en route to nearby Lititz, Pa., stop for asparagus in spring, corn in summer and, as the weather turns cold, longneck pumpkins for Thanksgiving pies. When people from New York or New Jersey come up, said Hess, 60, they are amazed that this kind of thing is done anymore. Hess has updated the old ways with technology. He added a video camera a few years back, to help catch people who drive off without paying or raid the cashbox. But he said there isnt enough theft to undermine his trust in human nature. Ill say 99 and a half percent of the people are honest, said Hess, whos operated the produce stand for two decades. Theres no single explanation for Americans loss of trust. The best-known analysis comes from Bowling Alone author Robert Putnams nearly two decades of studying the United States declining social capital, including trust. Putnam contends Americans have abandoned their bowling leagues and Elks lodges to stay home and watch TV. Less socializing and fewer community meetings make people less trustful than the long civic generation that came of age during the Depression and World War II. University of Maryland Professor Eric Uslaner, who studies politics and trust, put the blame elsewhere: economic inequality. Trust has declined as the gap between the nations rich and poor gapes ever wider, Uslaner said, and more and more Americans feel shut out. Theyve lost their sense of a shared fate. Tellingly, trust rises with wealth. People who believe the world is a good place and its going to get better and you can help make it better, they will be trusting, Uslaner said. If you believe its dark and driven by outside forces you cant control, you will be a mistruster. African-Americans consistently have expressed far less faith in most people than the white majority does. Racism, discrimination and a high rate of poverty destroy trust. Nearly 8 in 10 AfricanAmericans, in the 2012 survey conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago with principal funding from the National Science Foundation, felt that you cant be too careful. That figure has held remarkably steady across the 25 GSS surveys since 1972. The decline in the nations overall trust quotient was driven by changing attitudes among whites. Its possible that people today are indeed less deserving of trust than Americans in the past, perhaps because of a decline in moral values. I think people are acting more on their greed, said Murawski, a computer specialist who says he has witnessed scams and ripoffs. Everybody wants a comfortable lifestyle, but what are you going to do for it? Where do you draw the line? Ethical behavior such as lying and cheating are difficult to document over the decades. Its worth noting that the early, most trusting years of the GSS poll coincided with Watergate and the Vietnam War. Trust dropped off in the more stable 1980s. Crime rates fell in the 1990s and 2000s, and still Americans grew less trusting. Many social scientists blame 24-hour news coverage of distant violence for skewing peoples perceptions of crime.A2SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE NATION Some conditions may apply.

BradentonMan charged with shooting at holiday gatheringA Tampa Bay area man was arrested after authorities said he fired a shotgun into a neighbors home during a Thanksgiving gathering. The Manatee County Sheriffs Office reported that 23-year-old Joshua Gennell was charged with two counts of attempted murder and several other charges. He was being held Friday without bail. Gennell had apparently been a guest at the gathering but was asked to leave shortly after midnight Friday because of rude behavior and drinking. Deputies said Gennell went home and returned with a pump-action shotgun, which he fired into the air. No injuries were reported. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Local business lives the United Way Specialty Gems offers 5 percent donation of salesERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerA local nonprofit organization is uniting with local businesses during the holiday season. With Black Friday over and lots of Christmas shopping ahead, the United Way of Citrus County is encouraging residents to shop local and help not only local mom-andpop shops but the United Way. The United Way of Citrus County is a nonprofit organization that collaborates with other local organizations in uniting efforts in fundraising and support by identifying and resolving pressing community issues. Its main focus includes education, income and health. We think it would be a great way to team together, said United Way of Citrus County CEO Amy Meek. It really helps underline how everyone in the community businesses, nonprofits and individuals can all be a part of this social-needs solution. It is a great way for us to all continue working together to drive change together. One business has already stepped up to the challenge. From now through Christmas Eve, Specialty Gems in Crystal River is offering a 5 percent donation of sales back to United Way. Specialty Gems has been amazing with this idea that they came up with to support United Way in a creative way, said United Way of Citrus County CEO Amy Meek. Any type of retail store is going to have some of their biggest sales during the month of December. For them to even consider this, it is wonderful and many of their items are unique and reasonably priced for consumers. Meek and Specialty Gems coowner Carol Kimbrough are challenging other businesses to do the same. Its a circular path. When nonprofits need donations they turn to their community but if the local businesses cannot keep their doors open there wont be donations, Kimbrough said in a press release. We decided this year to promote shopping local while giving back to our community and we challenge other local shops to do the same. A percentage of sales will heighten United Ways source of charitable donations. Its a big boost in our annual campaign and giving, Meek said. We are really excited about how we are going to be able to use these funds for more positive things in the community. Any other business that would be interested in participating would be so welcomed. We would love the opportunity to partner with the local businesses and highlight their charitable giving and philanthropy through this method. Instead of traveling to out-ofcounty stores, shop locally. We hope other businesses will do the same by encouraging shopping right here in Citrus County and commit to helping our neighbors with a donation to United Way for every sale, said Specialty Gems co-owner Ed Wilsek. For more information on how to donate to United Way, call 352795-LIVE (5483). Amy MeekCEO of United Way of Citrus County.

A New Jersey canine that was crowned the worlds ugliest dog in 2007 and later became the topic of a childrens book preaching acceptance has died. Elwood was 8. His owner, Karen Quigley, said the Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix died unexpectedly Thanksgiving morning. The Sewell resident said Elwood had been dealing with some heath issues in recent months but appeared to be doing well. Elwood was dark colored and hairless save for a puff of white fur resembling a Mohawk on his head. He was often referred to by fans as Yoda, or E.T., for his resemblance to those famous science-fiction characters. Elwood won his crown at the annual ugly dog contest at the Marin-Sonoma County Fair in California a year after he had finished second.US rappers say they filmed music video in NKoreaBEIJING Two aspiring American rappers said they have filmed a music video during a five-day visit to North Korea. The rappers known as Pacman and Peso did not say where and how they filmed the video. Their fundraising proposal suggested the video would be shot on a karaoke party bus in Pyongyang. They raised more than $10,000 on the crowdsourcing site Kickstarter to fund their trip. The Washington-area residents, whose real names are Anthony Bobb and Dontray Ennis, spoke to reporters after arriving in Beijing on Saturday. They said the unusual move could jumpstart their music careers. They hope to release the video next month. North Korea has detained at least six Americans in recent years, including an elderly tourist last month.Online petition: stop Jackson bloodless bullfightJACKSON, Miss. The man behind two new events celebrating Jacksons Hispanic population has brought controversy with the third. An online petition to cancel the Mississippi Bullfighting Exhibition scheduled Dec. 7 had nearly 7,900 signatures by midday Saturday. A California company that stages such events said bulls have Velcro pads over their shoulders and matadors throw Velcro-topped banderillas. Jackson promoter Peter Castorena tells The ClarionLedger its more humane than a rodeo bulls wont even be roped. Petition creator Kimberly Spiegel of Oxford said it perpetuates what she calls a cultural practice that is inherently inhumane and exploitative and causes unnecessary fear and suffering for the bulls. Castorenas earlier events were a Cinco de Mayo festival and a Hispanic rodeo.

always been a grandmother to me, and I always adored her. Mark Stoltz met Miss Mattie Mae when he was 15 and working in the kitchen at Inverness Golf & Country Club where his father was the chef. I happened to overhear someone talking about Miss Mattie Maes husband, George Pipgras, who was a pitcher for the Yankees back in the Babe Ruth days, Stoltz said. Miss Mattie Mae found out I was a big baseball fan and she came into the kitchen while I was washing dishes, and she started talking to me and asked if Id like to meet her husband. I was in awe, Stoltz said. I went out and the three of us sat there, and hes telling me stories and Id look over at her and shed wink at me and smile. When Mr. Pip got up to go to the bathroom, she put her hand on my arm and said, Master Mark thats what she called me I havent seen a twinkle in Georges eyes in a long time. Ill never forget that. She made me feel so important, that she took time out of her life to make friends with me. In Mattie Maes online obituary guestbook, Brenda Vanover referred to Mattie Mae as Aunt Ducky, and wrote that she was the kindest, most good-hearted woman that you would ever meet. She was the type of person that would always make you smile even though you were about to cry. I know when I was little I always looked up to her from just needing someone to talk to or just a shoulder to cry on. I knew I could always count on her. I will miss her very much. In 2005, Mattie Mae told the Chronicleabout life in Inverness back in the day, about roller skating with her friends around the Historic Courthouse and going to dances at the former Crown Hotel. She lived in a two-bedroom house on Trout Avenue for 50 years. She was a Cub Scout den mother, Inverness Womans Club officer, a sponsor of the Little Womans Club and the Inverness Junior Womans Club. She served in the PTA, was a charter member of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and a former member of the Inverness Golf and Country Club. In 1972, Mattie Mae retired from the B&W Rexall Drug Store pharmacy department. She outlived two husbands Nulin Dixon and George Pipgras. She was quite possibly the member of First United Methodist Church in Inverness with the longest tenure a member for more than 90 years. She loved Inverness and never forgot it, even in the latter years when she moved to Jacksonville to be closer to her son. Mostly, Miss Mattie Mae was herself, a genteel Southern lady whose greatest ambition was to make people feel loved and welcomed and important. Max Wilkins called her beautiful both inside and out. She affected my life, Mark Stoltz said. She was the most charming, wonderful woman. She had class. Everybody who knew her was touched by her. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicleonline.com. to the private insurance companies. Thats a big number, he said. Foundation chairwoman Sandy Chadwick said one concern she had in choosing HCA over nonprofit Tampa General Hospital was the bottom line of a forprofit company. I think people would want to continue to have obstetrics in this county, she said. If its judged strictly on whether you make money on it, then there you go. If HCA decides to eliminate obstetrics, that wouldnt necessarily force Citrus County women to give birth in Brooksville or Ocala. Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, owned by Health Management Associates, has a Womens Health Center that delivers about 300 babies a year, spokeswoman Dorothy Pernu said. Chadwick said she could understand why HCA would balk at being told ahead of time what it can or cannot do in a longterm lease. I have to admit, you cant lease the hospital and then micromanage how theyre going to run it, she said. Hospital officials should know HCAs view on the obstetrics request in the coming weeks when the company responds to the proposed LOI. Brannen said he hopes HCA sees the significance of the obstetrics unit in the community. You think of your hospital having that ability to take care of local residents in that fashion, he said. From my standpoint, its very important.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 A5 000GSSE See your independent Trane dealer for complete program eligibility, dates, details and restrictions.

JIMWAYMER Florida TodayROCKLEDGE At the Indian River Isles subdivision south of Rockledge, so much muck coats the canal bottom that homeowners who pay a premium for lagoon access often run amok with frustration when they try to launch their boats. Most of the year, none of them get out of here, said Doug Murphy, president of one of the subdivisions property owners associations. His community is among many countywide with old canals clogged by black, viscous gunk. An estimated 5million to 7million cubic yards of muck blankets the lagoon bottom in Brevard County alone, the legacy of more than a half-century of runoff and erosion. The muck is mostly soil from construction sites, farms and homes along the lagoons tributaries. But grass clippings, algae and other plants also contribute, as do past decades of fertilizer and sewage entering the lagoon. Those nutrients feed too much plant growth, and when the excess algae and other plants die, they settle out along the lagoon bottom as noxious muck. The muck also carries metals from cars, power plants, paints and electronics into the estuary. Those cling to clays from sod and construction sites, flow into stormwater, then ooze into the estuary. And the problem goes well beyond just a navigational hazard. Brevards 160miles of finger canals and other channels along the lagoon are the estuarys last line of defense before seagrasssmothering muck reaches the lagoon at large. So homeowners in Indian River Isles and elsewhere say local and state government ought to help dredge their private canals and the lagoon tributaries that flow by their back yards. We just want them to pay for what they dump into it, Murphy said. He and his neighbors blame the state and county for not properly maintaining nearby stormwater ditches and pipes, which carry dirt, rotting plants and polluted runoff into their canal. Muck suspends easily in the water, clouding it up and limiting the growth of seagrass, the staple food of manatees and the most important habitat for fish and other lagoon life. It also contributes to bacterial decay, which consumes oxygen from the bottom sediment and water, potentially causing fish kills Canals first became popular here during the housing boom in the early days of the Space Age as developers used dredge-and-fill techniques to essentially create additional waterfront property on which to build homes. Now, more than a halfcentury of muck has built up in the lagoon and its tributaries, more than 10 feet thick in some places. In some spots, like the Eau Gallie River, the dirt, sand and mud foil even pontoon boats, which draw only inches of water. Biologists say the muck must go. But dredging up enough of the stuff to benefit lagoon water quality would be expensive, and funding is elusive. Officials from six lagoon-side counties recently asked the state for a combined $120million for muck dredging and other lagoon restoration projects, but its uncertain which will get funded. Much of the recent political drive surrounding the lagoon has focused on funding large-scale projects to lessen the fertilizerladen water releases from Lake Okeechobee. Brevard and the cities within the county must maintain 160miles of canals and channels, not including the more than 70miles of the Intracoastal Waterway, the main channel that cuts through the center of the lagoon. Maintaining the ICW falls to the Florida Inland Navigation District, which focuses on projects that benefit boating. Our mission is to keep the navigability, said Mark Crosley, FINDs executive director. At this point, were not looking to do dredging for environmental reasons, Crosley added. The water quality benefits are a secondary benefit to us. The ICW serves as a muck sump of sorts the lowest point where fine material winds up. But with scant federal funds to help, dredging more of the ICW through Brevard anytime soon would be a pipe dream, officials say. We dont have a dredging project right now in the five-year window for Brevard County, Crosley said. FIND estimates maintenance dredging of the ICW will cost $12 million to $16 million annually during the next 50 years, with half of the costs expected to be borne by property owners within the district. Much of the muck originates from yards. Sod is a significant source, especially from the barrier island side, said John Trefry, a Florida Tech geochemist whos studied the lagoons muck deposits. In the 1990s, he estimated muck covered about 10 percent of the lagoon bottom. But after three hurricanes in 2004, the muck coverage may have doubled as storms stirred up muck that had gathered in canals. That really changed the dynamic. Now, its been spread around so much, its really like a malignancy, if you will, Trefry said. He said dredging the close-to-shore muck hot spots in areas where past harmful algae blooms have ruined seagrass might yield more environmental benefit than dredging the ICW. Lacking local funds, Brevard and other lagoon counties are looking to the state. Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. The Friends group will unveil a new pavilion they built on the property. This year, there is going to be a lot going on, said Ivan Vicente, USFWS spokesman. We have a mermaid show and there will be a performance by Ibex Puppetry. Ibex is the company run by the daughter of Jim Henson. The late Jim Henson was the creator of the world-famous Muppets. According to a blog associated with Ibex, Heather Henson uses full-sensory storytelling in order to offer audiences a transformative experience. Other events include an endangered species parade, live music all day, more than 20 educational booths and a barbecue lunch will be available for purchase. People are encouraged to make their own puppets and join the parade. There also will be instruments available from around the world to improvise and play music. The Refuge Day event was initially set for Oct.17, but the federal government shutdown forced its cancellation. Organizers usually slate refuge days once a month during the peak of tourist season at Three Sisters. The season runs from November to March when manatees are abundant in the relatively warm waters of the springs. Vicente said shuttles will be available from Kings Bay Plaza on U.S. 19 to the main springs area. It should be a lot of fun for individuals or families, Vicente said.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

LOISM. COLLINS Deseret News While most Americans believe that in some circumstances patients should be allowed to die, the minority who believe doctors should always do everything possible to keep someone alive has more than doubled since 1990, said a new survey from the Pew Research Center. Two-thirds of those asked about end-of-life care for others said a patient should be allowed to die in certain cases; 31percent said there are no such circumstances. In 1990, 15percent said doctors and other health professionals should always do everything possible to save a patient. In 2005, that number was 22percent. Thats almost a doubling in the share of adults who say medical staff should always do what they can, said Cary Funk, senior researcher at Pew. The change is two-pronged, she added, with fewer people taking the view intervening may not always be a good idea, along with more people who express an opinion at all. In earlier surveys, the percentage with no opinion or not responding was higher.A different endOne of the things families havent gotten their heads around is the change in how people are arriving at the end of their lives, said Dr. Joanne Lynn, director of the Altarum institute in Washington, D.C., and who was not involved in Pews survey. That may contribute to the shift in views. For much of the past, people came to the end of their lives somewhat predictably. Barring an accident, theyd know they had a terminal illness and move into the category labeled dying. Once in that category, there were things that should be done, she said. Its less clear now. People instead come down with multiple problems over an extended period of time and are still often pretty stable until a couple of weeks before they die, she said. Weve never put together a care system, a Social Security system, a financing system around that reality, but its there. That change may have changed how people view end-of-life issues. There are so many things you can keep doing and sometimes they work. They work enough. Until a little something comes along that is big enough to topple those reserves, Lynn said. The Pew survey of roughly 2,000 adults, conducted in March and April, also found Americans are closely divided on physician-assisted suicide, with 47percent approving laws that would allow it, compared to 49percent opposed. That has changed little from 2005. The percentage that believe a person in great pain with no hope of improvement has a right to take his own life rose to 62percent from 1990s 55 percent. Most of those surveyed noted circumstances in which they would want to halt their own treatment and be allowed to die: 57percent if they were in a lot of pain and 52 percent if they had an incurable disease and depended entirely on someone else for care. On the other hand, just over a third said they would tell their doctors to do everything possible to keep them alive, even in dire circumstances, such as having a disease with no hope of improvement andNATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 A7 CUSTOM FRAMING & ART GALLERY Est. 1992 Est. 1992 1681 US Hwy. 19 Crystal River 352-795-5131 For Her For Him 000GJTN Original art Museum framing Basic matting Poster framing Photo & portrait framing 2013 2013 2013 2013 000GR0O Enjoy $25 off a 50 minute Elemental Massage Or a Botanical Skin Resurfacing Facial.

experiencing a great deal of pain, the report said. Thats up from 28percent in 1990. Young adults in particular thought medical professionals should always do everything possible to save the life, said Funk. She was also interested to find that nearly half of those surveyed had had to think about some of the issues at least indirectly and sometimes very directly. Forty-seven percent said that through a close friend or in their family they had experienced the issues of someone in a coma or who had a terminal illness. Its not abstract as theyre thinking about this kind of situation, Funk said.Race and religionStrong differences showed up by both religion and ethnicity, Funk said. The patterns vary a little bit depending on the concept, which will surprise some people. Blacks and Hispanics more than whites were more apt to say they want a doctor to do everything possible for them. Most white Protestants, whether mainline or evangelical, and most white Catholic said if they could not be cured and were suffering great pain, theyd stop treatment. Black Protestants and Hispanic Catholics said even in those circumstances theyd ask the doctor to do everything possible to save them. There were racial and ethnic differences within religions, too, said Funk, who noted striking differences among Catholics. You can separate white non-Hispanic Catholics from Hispanic Catholics and see sharp differences. ... The majority of Hispanics say do everything possible. Religious division was also found on the topic of suicide, with about half of white evangelic Protestants and black Protestants disagreeing that a person has a moral right to suicide in the various circumstance on which they were surveyed. Those without religious affiliation, and whites who were either mainline Protestants or Catholics were more likely to find a moral right to commit suicide. The racial and ethnic divisions were similar for physician-assisted suicide.Ready or notFamilies face a myriad of issues when someone they love is dying, said John Mastro john, senior vice president of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, based in Alexandria, Va. In hospice, families are always facing impending loss and they know that loss is coming. They are dealing with the impending loss and other emotional issues around that, as well as financial issues for some. Most Americans 65 and older surveyed said theyd given at least some thought to what kind of treatment theyd hope for in different circumstances at the end of their lives. Even so, 27percent said they had not given any thought to how medical professionals should care for them at the end of their lives. Of those 75 and older, 22percent said nothing was written down and they had not talked to loved ones about their wishes. Of those older seniors who described their own health as just fair or poor, 30percent had not had such a conversation or prepared an end-of-life directive. Mastrojohn and other experts in end-of-life issues say some of the stress can be reduced if people will think about what they might want in the future and then fill out advance directive paperwork. Each states paperwork is available on his groups website. There are a lot of misconceptions, particularly about hospice care, he said. Hospice does nothing to hasten or prolong death, but it views death and dying as a natural part of the life cycle. Hospice is there to help with issues related to pain, symptoms, the psychosocial and emotional issues one may be facing and for those to whom it is important, spiritual issues. He said families say they wish theyd involved hospice sooner.Early decisionsThe end of life can be more challenging because people can be caught off guard by it, said Judy Citko from the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California, a Sacramentobased collaboration focused on education to help people get care they want in the face of illness. People want to do the best they can, but its possible to be overwhelmed, she said. It takes a discussion of what makes life worth living for that person and to determine how much the patient is willing to tolerate in terms of pain, medical equipment, hospitalizations and more. If at least some of the conversations take place early, it isnt so hard when the decision actually has to be made. Her professional experience has not matched Pews findings, she said. What were seeing is that people are getting more educated about end of life and what kind of medical issues might arise and becoming more sensitized that (treating no matter what) might be a path they dont want to go down. Regardless, she said, conversations about endof-life wishes which can be changed as your views and circumstances change are important. The conversation is the most important thing, said Citko. It should be with anyone who is important in your life. What often happens, she added, is a family member who was left out of the conversation shows up at the bedside, creating conflicting views.

Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa Agriculture economists have long warned that farmers are getting old and staying on their land longer, delaying the turnover to a younger generation. But an Ohio State University professor argues that those fears are overstated and the United States likely will have little problem replacing aging farmers as long as business is good, as it has been for the past decade. Others arent so sure, saying while they agree with OSU agriculture economist Carl Zulaufs assessment that concerns about the unquestionably aging farmer population remain valid and create uncertainty about who will produce the nations crops in the future. I think what he said is absolutely right, Iowa State University economics professor Mike Duffy said. I think the conclusion hes drawing, though, is not necessarily the correct one. Zulauf contends that just like in the 1970s, farm prosperity will draw more young workers into farming. And prosperous the business is: This year, net income from U.S. farms is expected to reach a record $131 billion. Farm wealth has also reached record levels, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, with farm asset values rising 7 percent this year to a record $3 trillion. On average, farmers are about 15 years older than the broader U.S. workforce, Zulaf said, but noted in his October report that this age difference hasnt changed since the 1980s and that the average age of farmers is increasing at the same pace as U.S. workers generally. USDA statistics in 2007 showed that for each farmer under 25, there were five who were 75 or older. In Iowa alone, Duffy said, landowners who were older than 75 owned 28 percent of the states farmland in 2007, compared with 24 percent in 2002 and just 12 percent in 1982. Duffy believes its essential to pay attention to the transition of farms from one generation to another, saying the catch is enabling those young farmers with programs and policies that help people with few assets and little access to land to get a chance to farm. Land prices throughout the Midwest have soared in the past decade, largely due to strong prices for corn and soybeans, with the average value in the U.S. this year rising 9.4 percent to $2,900 per acre. Iowas average farm real estate value increased 20 percent this year to $8,400 an acre. And farm implements, such as tractors, combines and grain bins, are often pricey, with a new combine costing upward of $350,000. It takes a while to acquire that capital usually by saving or through inheritance, Zulauf said in an interview. That doesnt typically happen until people have passed a fair number of years as a working adult to get to that stage. Lindsey Lusher Shute, 34, knows that difficulty first hand. She and her husband, Benjamin Shute, 35, farm 70 acres near Clermont, N.Y. She said the three biggest concerns for younger people looking to farm are access to land, ability to borrow money for land and equipment and health insurance costs. Land in the Hudson Valley, where she is, costs about $8,000 to $10,000 an acre.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 A9 795-5900 Layaway Available Stunning Sterling Silver & Diamond East-West Crosses 600 SE Hwy. 19, Crystal River The Original Crystal River Manatee Bracelet TM Sterling/18K Silver Quartz & Black Diamonds Add sparkle and shine to your holiday gift giving!

N. Carolina man on way to Lebanon latest arrested Associated PressRALEIGH, N.C. Federal officials say Americans are joining the bloody civil war in Syria, raising the chances they could become radicalized by al-Qaida-linked militant groups and return to the U.S. as battle-hardened security risks. The State Department says it has no estimates of how many Americans have taken up weapons to fight military units loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad in the conflict that has killed more than 100,000 people over 2 1/2 years. Other estimates from an arm of the British defense consultant IHS Janes and from experts at a nonprofit think tank in London put the number of Americans at a couple dozen. The IHS group says al-Qaida-linked fighters number about 15,000, with total anti-Assad force at 100,000 or more. This year, at least three Americans have been charged with planning to fight beside Jabhat alNusrah a radical Islamic organization that the U.S. considers a foreign terrorist group against Assad. The most recent case involves a Pakistan-born North Carolina man arrested on his way to Lebanon. At a Senate homeland security committee hearing this month, Sen. Thomas Carper, DDel., said: We know that American citizens as well as Canadian and European nationals have taken up arms in Syria, in Yemen and in Somalia. The threat that these individuals could return home to carry out attacks is real and troubling. The hearing came about two weeks after the FBI and other officers arrested Basit Sheikh, 29, at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport on charges he was on his way to join Jabhat al-Nusrah. Sheikh, a legal resident of the United States, had lived quietly, without a criminal record, in a Raleigh suburb for five years before his Nov. 2 arrest. A similar arrest came in April in Chicago. And in September, authorities in Virginia released an Army veteran accused of fighting alongside the group after a secret plea deal. In August, outgoing FBI Director Robert Mueller told ABC News that he was concerned about Americans fighting in Syria, specifically the associations they will make and, secondly, the expertise they will develop, and whether or not they will utilize those associations, utilize that expertise, to undertake an attack on the homeland. Current FBI Director James Comey said this month that he worried about Syria becoming a repeat of Afghanistan in the 1980s, after the Soviet invasion, with foreign fighters attracted there to train. The FBI refused to say whether its directed agents to increase efforts to stop Americans bound for Syria. In the case of Sheikh, his North Carolina home isnt considered a breeding ground for terrorist activity. But Aaron Zelin, who works for both the London-based International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, notes that Sheikh lived about three hours from the hometown of Samir Khan, the editor of an English-language alQaida magazine who was killed in a drone attack in Yemen. Sheikh is charged with planning to assist a group the State Department has declared a terrorist organization. Its not illegal for Americans who also hold citizenship in another country to fight in that countrys military. But American citizenship can be lost for voluntarily serving in foreign armed forces hostile to the U.S. For five months this year, Sheikh didnt know he was being monitored as he posted messages and videos on Facebook expressing support for jihadi militants fighting Assads forces, according to a Nov. 2 sworn affidavit by FBI Special Agent Jason Maslow in support of the warrant to arrest Sheikh. In August, Sheikh commented to an undercover FBI employees posts on a Facebook page promoting Islamic extremism. The two struck up an online relationship, the affidavit said. Sheikh told the informant he planned to trek to Syria to join a brigade in logistics, managing medical supplies. Days later, Sheikh said hed bought a one-way ticket to travel to Turkey in hopes of making contact with people who would get him to Syria. Sheikh said he backed out because he could not muster the strength to leave his parents, the affidavit said. Sheikh said he had traveled to Turkey last year hoping to join the fight in Syria, but became dispirited by his experience with people who claimed to be part of the U.S.-backed Free Syrian Army. After Sheikh expressed online support for Jabhat al-Nusrah and interest in traveling to the war zone, the FBI employee suggested Sheikh contact a person with the group another FBI informant. Sheikh made contract, describing Jabhat al-Nusrah as the most disciplined group of anti-Assad fighters, the affidavit said. Im not scared, Sheikh wrote, according to the affidavit. Im ready. Two federal public defenders appointed to represent Sheikh are barred by local court practice from discussing their cases, spokeswoman Elizabeth Luck said. Sheikhs father, Javed Sheikh, said his son was falsely accused but that he trusts U.S. courts to find the truth. A federal magistrate ruled that Sheikh should be detained until his trial because there was clear evidence that he wouldnt appear if released on bond and that there was a serious risk to the community if he were freed. Basit Sheikhs arraignment is scheduled for January. He could face up to 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 A11 License #DN 17606 Next to ACE in Homosassa ( 352 ) 628-3443 Ledgerdentistry.com We Cater to Cowards!

One dead, at least five wounded Associated PressBANGKOK Aggressive political protests in the Thai capital turned violent late Saturday with at least one man killed and five wounded by gunshots in street fighting between supporters and opponents of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. It was not immediately known who fired the shots or what side the victims were on. National Police Deputy Spokesman Anucha Romyanan said the dead man was a 21-year-old male with two bullet wounds. The violence in the short run may stir fears of further instability like what plagued the country during related political conflicts in 2006, 2008 and 2010. Any escalation of violence is likely to scare away tourists who come to Thailand by the millions and contribute a huge chunk to the economy. But it may help the government by undermining the claims of its opponents to be carrying out a nonviolent campaign of civil disobedience. The violence is likely to scare away some supporters who would otherwise attend the oppositions rallies. Matters were feared to come to a head Sunday, when the protesters vowed to seize the well-guarded prime ministers offices. The demonstrators are seeking to topple Yinglucks government, which they believe serves the interests of her brother, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted by a 2006 military coup after being accused of corruption and abuse of power. The authorities have exercised extreme restraint over the past week as the protesters besieged and occupied parts of various government ministries and offices, aware that using force could tip public opinion and perhaps become an excuse for the military to take power in the name of restoring order. Conventional wisdom in the Thai capital has been that the protesters have been seeking that. A special police-led peacekeeping agency said Saturday that the military agreed to send 2,730 personnel to help with security on the streets today. Although the army has declared itself neutral in the current crisis, it deposed Thaksin in 2006 and shows little sympathy for him. The shootings Saturday night occurred after scattered violence during the day involving government opponents attacking several people they believed were going to a rally at a stadium of Red Shirt government supporters. While the main sites occupied by anti-government protesters remained peaceful, the violence broke out near a stadium where a crowd that appeared to number well over 50,000 Red Shirts rallied in support of the government. Villagers rush to aid rural Alaska crash survivorsANCHORAGE, Alaska Residents of a rural Alaska village reached survivors of a commuter plane crash two hours after the aircraft went down in freezing rain, authorities said Saturday. The pilot and three passengers died in the crash of the single-engine turboprop Cessna 208. At least six passengers were transported for medical treatment. There was no report of fire. Few other details, including the possible cause of the crash in freezing rain, are known, National Transportation Safety Board investigator Clint Johnson said. The Hageland Aviation flight crashed around 6:30 p.m. about four miles from Saint Marys, he said. Rescuers reached the scene at 8:30 p.m. Pilot Terry Hansen and passengers Rose Polty, Richard Polty and Wyatt Coffee, an infant, died in the crash, Alaska State Troopers said. The survivors included Melanie Coffee, Pauline Johnson, Kylan Johnson, Tonya Lawrence, Garrett Moses and Shannon Lawrence. Their ages and hometowns were not immediately available. The 40 to 50 people searching could not immediately spot the wrecked airplane despite speaking to survivors. They were hampered by fog. Coffee was able to leave the wrecked airplane and walk three-quarters of a mile to the village landfill, Lamont said, where she met a search party and guided responders to the crash.Thanksgiving snub led to machete threatNEW MILFORD, N.J. Authorities said a northern New Jersey man used a machete to threaten a family who excluded him and his son from their Thanksgiving Day celebrations. New Milford police told NJ.com that 48-year-old Joseph Hoo, of Upper Montclair, was charged with weapons offenses and making terroristic threats. Police responding to the familys home at around 2 p.m. Thursday stopped a van leaving the residence. Police said Hoo and his 18year-old son were in the vehicle, and officers soon found an 18-inch machete and two baseball bats inside the van. Hoo was released on his own recognizance but ordered to not have contact with the family. A telephone number for Hoo couldnt be located Saturday. It wasnt clear if he had retained an attorney.

The plane crashed in a Namibian national park near the border with Angola and there were no survivors, Namibian police and Mozambican authorities said. An investigation of the cause was under way, and teams of experts headed to the scene. The Brazilian-made Embraer 190 aircraft was carrying 27 passengers, including 10 Mozambicans, nine Angolans, five Portuguese and one citizen each from France, Brazil and China, said the airline. Six crew members, including two pilots, three flight attendants and a maintenance technician, were on board. Mozambiques transport minister, Gabriel Muthisse, confirmed the deaths of the 33 people on the plane. A Namibian police helicopter joined officers on the ground in the search, the Namibia Press Agency reported. The area is vast and there are no roads, making it difficult to locate the plane, said police official Willy Bampton, according to the agency.Ukraine leader blasts violenceKIEV, Ukraine Ukraines president has condemned the violent dispersal of pro-EU protesters by riot police. Early Saturday, officers in riot gear moved against several hundred protesters on Independence Square in central Kiev, beating some with truncheons. President Viktor Yanukovych said in an address Saturday evening that he condemned the actions that led to the forceful confrontation. He called for an investigation and for those responsible to be punished. The demonstrators have denounced Yanukovychs refusal to sign an association agreement with the European Union.Dom. Republic launches migrant planSANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic The Dominican Republic has launched a plan putting into motion a recent court ruling that could strip the citizenship of children born to migrants living there illegally. The plan became effective Saturday and states that those affected by the ruling have 18 months to request Dominican citizenship starting in June 2014. The plan, however, does not provide details on what kind of requirements or conditions should be met. President Danilo Medina signed the plan days before the Inter-American Court of Human Rights holds a fiveday hearing to receive complaints and testimonies from those affected by the ruling. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressAnti-government protesters lock the entrance door Saturday at the Department of Special Investigation after rally in Bangkok, Thailand. Anti-government protesters in Thailand placed symbolic padlocks on the doors of several state-run offices, continuing a week-long campaign to paralyze the administration of Yingluck Shinawatra. Scottish holiday marred by police helicopter crash Associated PressGLASGOW, Scotland Scotlands official holiday was transformed into a grim day of mourning Saturday as emergency crews searched the wreckage of a riverside pub smashed by a falling police helicopter. At least eight people died and more than a dozen remained hospitalized with serious injuries. The Clutha, a popular Glasgow pub, was filled with revelers enjoying a local ska band on Friday night, the eve of St. Andrews Day, named for the patron saint of Scotland and which is normally a celebration of Scottish culture and heritage. Instead, Scotlands leader ordered flags at government buildings to be lowered to half-staff after the tragedy. This is a black day for Glasgow and Scotland, but its also St. Andrews Day, and its a day we can take pride and courage in how we respond to adversity and tragedy, Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond said. There may be more bad news. Police said a rescue and recovery operation is ongoing and that it wasnt clear what will be found once the aircrafts wreckage is removed. The process may take days. That means more waiting for people who dont know if their loved ones were in The Clutha at the fateful moment when the helicopter fell from the sky, directly hitting the riverside drinking establishment. Witnesses said it seemed to fall straight down into the roof of the pub. The crash Friday at around 10:30 p.m. sent dozens of patrons fleeing through a cloud of dust. Witnesses spoke of people streaming out of the building covered in blood, with gashes and other injuries. Ambulances rushed to the scene, taking the injured to nearby hospitals. Local resident Paul Dundas, 26, said he heard a loud bang and looked out of his window to see a plume of dust rising above the pub. At first I thought it was a firework, he said. People were covered in blood and dust. Other people were dragging them away from the bar and trying to get them out. Everyone was in shock, but people were helping and asking strangers if they were OK. I saw a couple help each other clean up their faces. Chief Constable Stephen House said three of the dead were found in the helicopter, which was carrying two police officers and a civilian pilot. He said the five other fatalities were found inside the building and that 14 people remained hospitalized with serious injuries. House wouldnt say if more people are believed to be inside the severely damaged pub. He said the helicopter is still dominating the whole space in the one-story building and that police wont know the situation until the wreckage is cleared away. It wasnt immediately clear what the helicopter was doing in the area prior to the crash. Police and air safety investigators say its too early to speculate on why the Eurocopter EC135 T2 helicopter came down on the pubs roof, close to a helipad on the bank of the River Clyde. Associated PressA firefighter and a rescue worker inspect the damage Saturday at the site of a helicopter crash in Glasgow, Scotland. The police helicopter crashed late Friday night into the roof of a popular pub, leaving the building littered with debris and emergency crews scrambling to the scene.

AUGUSTINE I was slowly crossing a swinging log bridge when I paused, sensing the alligator 12 feet below was staring at me. The water around the 8-foot gators enormous body began rippling rapidly. A second later, Big Al let out a deep bellow, as if to say, If you fall, youre my lunch. I was grateful to be strapped in a harness. The bridge was part of a 49-station obstacle course that includes 10 zip lines at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. It takes visitors over crocodiles, lemurs, giant tortoises, vultures and, of course, lots of alligators. Its just a totally different perspective. You can go to any zoo in the world and look at them through the glass, but you cant go anywhere and look at them over the top of the enclosures like you can here, said Scott Brown, who designed and now manages the Crocodile Crossing at the zoo. The alligator farm is fascinating enough on foot. At 120 years old, its one of Floridas oldest tourist attractions and it is the only zoo in the world that displays all 23 crocodilian species, including the nearly extinct Philippine crocodile. From above, its even more amazing. I paused on a rope bridge to watch enormous African vultures rip apart a carcass, zipped over a lagoon with dozens of alligators, watched lemurs scrambling around their cage below me and saw the surprised faces of the guests on the ground as I flew over their heads. And its a good workout. Ive zip-lined through the Berkshire Mountains in Massachusetts and found this to be a bigger challenge. The zip lines in the mountains might be longer and faster, but the obstacles at the St. Augustine zoo make you work harder. I had to climb rope ladders, traverse a ST.

A16SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT Dear Annie: I am in my 60s and have been married for 10 years to a wonderful man. Its a second marriage for both of us. He was a widower and I was divorced. The problem is his daughter, Emily, who has been a thorn in our sides from day one. When we married, we signed a prenup. My husband has investments, which are primarily in his childrens names. My house was paid for, and his wasnt, so he sold it and we moved into mine. Its still in my name because I intend to leave it to my children after both of us pass on. Emily has been complaining to her father that he should have his name on the deed to my house. I am not willing to do this, because if we divorce, he gets 50 percent of all of my assets, including the house. I dont have a lot of money, I dont make a lot of money and I also dont ask my husband for money. Yet, Emily tells him Im only after his money. I think Emily is evil and mean, and I dont want to be around her. She gives bill collectors our phone number, so we get harassed about her missing payments. The reason she wants her fathers name on my house is because she wants to inherit it. I am sick of her manipulations, but not sure what to do. Her father takes her side and it makes me wonder how much he loves me. Fed Up Dear Fed Up: Your problem isnt Emily so much as it is your husband, who refuses to tell her to knock it off. Please talk to him (do not badmouth his daughter) and explain that your prenup protects both of you and preserves your assets for your heirs. Reassure him that if you die, he can live in the house for the rest of his life, but then it passes to your children.

HANNAHDREIER Associated PressLAS VEGAS For years, Las Vegas tourists have had no place to pay their respects to one of the glitzy towns founding fathers. The once wildly popular Liberace museum, 2 miles from Sin Citys main tourist corridor, closed in 2010 after years of declining patronage, and the famously flamboyant entertainers shimmering artifacts have since languished in storage. This week, a Strip casino is bringing some of Liberaces most decadent possessions back into the public eye. Visitors to the six-week exhibition at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas will be able to gaze upon Liberaces glittering piano, trademark European candelabras, and so-called Rhinestone Roadster, an old-time car decked out in faux gemstones. Also on display are the custom-made cowboy boots, sequined jumpsuits and jewel-and-ermine capes that powered Liberaces catchphrase, My clothes may look funny but theyre making me the money. The flashy pianist became the best-paid entertainer on the planet during his heyday from the 1950s to the 1970s. He was the forerunner to gender-bender entertainers like Elton John, David Bowie, and Madonna, though he never openly addressed his sexual orientation, and his fans never seemed to catch on to his private gay life. After his death in the 1980s, Liberaces star faded faster than other Las Vegas fixtures like Frank Sinatra and Elvis. But this year has been good to his legacy. In August, a British businessman bought Liberaces 15,000-square-foot Las Vegas mansion for $500,000 and said he would work relentlessly to restore it to its former glory. In May, Michael Douglas played the entertainer in the HBO biopic Behind the Candelabra. The Cosmopolitan casino tends to attract a younger crowd. The installation is titled Too Much of a Good Thing Is Wonderful, and like its sub ject, it will keep late hours. It will be open through Jan. 2, from 3 p.m. until 10 p.m. high wire and struggle to maintain balance on bridges that use swinging ladders, swinging logs and boards that are placed so far apart they sometimes require a leap instead of a step. Even with temperatures in the low 70s I worked up a good sweat. Plus, you dont find alligators and crocodiles in the mountains of the Northeast. Its just almost impossible to match what they have in other parts of the country, but what we lack in distance and speed we make up for in the scenery, Brown said. You have to go through the obstacles to get to the zip line. The zip line is your reward for your hard work of the obstacles. Theres a reason they call it a challenge course. It is challenging. The longest zip-line on the course is 300 feet, or the length of a football field. There are some very fast lines, requiring some quick breaking. Theres also the occasional palm frond that harmlessly whacks your butt. I didnt stare at the alligators and crocodiles while zipping, choosing to instead focus on the landing platform ahead of me. But I did pause often on the platforms and obstacles to look at the creatures below. The zoo spaces out the guests to ensure they arent rushed through the course, which takes about 90 minutes to complete. The most amazing, awesome thing Ive done ever, said Ava Martin, 53, who lives just north of St. Augustine. She and her 21-year-old son Corey were taking the course for the second time. Being over a big alligator is freaky! Corey Martin said. Youre not rushed to do it. While youre doing it, you can just stop, if you like, and see everything. That includes behind-thescene views that other guests wont get. Youll see things that the public doesnt get to see, said Brown. Whether its other animal enclosures, animals getting moved, animals getting a vet visit, maybe getting blood drawn. And its always exciting for the public to see a large alligator or even a small alligator getting caught, getting taped up and getting moved. Youre always going to see something that nobody else is looking at. The course is a do-it-yourself adventure. Guests are given instructions at the beginning on how to clip and unclip themselves to safety lines. A guide then follows on the ground and makes sure theyre following safety rules, while at the same time providing facts about the animals theyre seeing. I saw the whole park. It was amazing, said Jackson Lawson, 12, of Hahira, Ga., who was celebrating his birthday at the alligator farm. I stopped on a zip line just to hang there for a second to look at mostly the alligators because we were just so close to them above them. It was really pretty. It was cool.EXCURSIONSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 A21 ZIPContinued from Page A15 Associated PressManager Scott Brown standing at the first of 49 stations on the obstacle course at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm in St. Augustine.

Panthers wary of trap game vs. Bucs Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Panthers coach Ron Rivera wont allow his team to fall victim to a potential trap game today against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Theres too much at stake. The Panthers (8-3) are the NFL s hottest team, having won seven straight games to position themselves for their first playoff appearance since 2008. Yet they still trail New Orleans by a game in the NFC South. So next weeks game against the Saints could help determine not only the division champion but wholl get a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs. Thats why the first thing Rivera mentioned to his players during their team meeting this week was that their focus needs to be solely on the Buccaneers. I do mean it when I say the most important game is Tampa Bay, said Rivera, who has gone from hot seat to potential coach of the year contender. I mean, I know whats after Tampa, but hey, there is no after that if we dont take care of business right now. The Panthers know they cant take the Bucs lightly. Tampa Bay comes in on a three-game winning streak after starting the season 0-8. The Bucs dont resemble the team the Panthers destroyed 31-13 last month in Tampa. Although its too late to make a difference this year, Bucs coach Greg Schiano said hes pleased with how his team has responded after a disappointing first half of the season. Our players have stuck together, theres been no finger pointing, Schiano said. Its hard when you get on that 0-5, 0-6, the pressure mounts to get that win, and I think our guys have done a good job of just sticking together. Thats the best part of it.

That crazy tipped pass for a long game-winning touchdown is now the secondmost stunning and improbable play of Auburns wild season. Yes, the Tigers found a way to top The Immaculate Deflection. Chris Davis returned a missed field-goal attempt more than 100 yards for a touchdown on the final play to lift No. 4 Auburn to a 34-28 victory over No. 1 Alabama on Saturday, upending the two-time defending national champions BCS hopes and preserving the Tigers own. Were a team of destiny, Davis said. We wont take no for an answer. He delivered a play that deserves its own nickname. Say the Happiest Return. Or the saddest, depending on which side of the Iron Bowl you sit. Davis caught the ball about 9 yards deep in the end zone after freshman Adam Griffiths 57-yard attempt fell short. He then sprinted down the left sideline and cut back with nothing but teammates around him in a second straight hard-tofathom finish for the Tigers (11-1, 7-1 Southeastern Conference). I knew when I caught the ball I would have room to run, Davis said. I knew they would have big guys on the field to protect on the field goal. When I looked back, I said, I cant believe this. Auburn clinched a spot in the SEC championship game with the stunning victory over the powerhouse from across the state. The Crimson Tide (11-1, 7-1) several times seemed poised to continue its run toward the first three-peat in modern college football, but couldnt put the Tigers away. Asked if it was the biggest win of his career, Tigers coach Gus Malzahn said: It ranks right up Associated PressAuburn cornerback Chris Davis returns a field goal attempt over 100 yards with no time left in the second half Saturday against Alabama in Auburn, Ala.

Wolverines miss two-point attempt in 42-41 setback Associated PressANN ARBOR, Mich. The 110th game between Ohio State and Michigan might have been the most thrilling, a back-and-forth affair that came down to one final play. The Wolverines went for the win and the Buckeyes stayed undefeated. Tyvis Powell intercepted Devin Gardners 2-point conversion pass with 32 seconds left and No. 3 Ohio State held on for a 42-41 victory against Michigan on Saturday as one of the greatest rivalries in sports added another memorable chapter to its storied history. Thats an instant classic, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said. Gardner threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Devin Funchess to make it 42-41, but instead of kicking for the tie and possibly pushing the game to overtime, Wolverines coach Brady Hoke asked his players if they wanted to go for it and got a unanimous response. See OSU/ Page B5 Associated PressFlorida State wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin catches a 4-yard touchdown pass in the end zone in front of Florida defensive back Vernon Hargreaves III during the second half Saturday in Gainesville. The No. 2 Seminoles coasted to a 37-7 victory over the Ga tors. No. 2 Florida State invades The Swamp to rout host Florida 37-7 Associated PressGAINESVILLE Kelvin Benjamin shook off one tackler and then three more, bullying his way into the end zone to finish off Florida States most impressive play on a day filled with them. Benjamin was clearly a mismatch just like the game. Jameis Winston threw three touchdown passes to Benjamin, and No. 2 Florida State moved a step closer to playing for the national championship with a 37-7 victory against rival Florida on Saturday. Tremendous, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. KB has real advantages with his size, speed and athleticism. He can be a very, very special player, and hes starting to develop into that guy. The Seminoles improved to 12-0 for the first time since 1999 and likely will earn a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game by beating Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game next Saturday. Florida, meanwhile, ended its worst season since 1979. The Gators (4-8) lost their final seven games and missed a bowl for the first time since 1990. Floridas bowl streak had been the second-longest in the country, behind Florida State. We hit rock bottom this year, Florida guard Max Garcia said. I feel like the only way we can go is up. The Seminoles were four-touchdown favorites in a lopsided matchup that lived up to advance billing. Although the outcome was never in doubt, the Gators made it interesting early with some stout defense. They hit Winston several times, even late once, and stuffed FSUs running game. But with its offense floundering once again Florida managed just three first downs in the first half the defense eventually wore down. And Winston & Co. took advantage. His competitiveness is ridiculous, Fisher said of Winston. Hes a competitor. Nothing fazes that guy. He thrives on that. ... The guys ability to learn and process information is what puts him over the top. He can think. He understands what hes doing at all times. And when he makes a mistake, he can come off and tell you exactly why he did it, what he did or didnt do right.

Thats what you coach for, thats what these kids play for, to get a chance to win the SEC championship, Malzahn said. The Tigers put it away just when overtime on tap. The public address announcer in the stadium had already declared the game 28-28 at the end of regulation. But Alabama got 1 second restored and one more play after a review of T.J. Yeldons run to the Auburn 39. That gave the Tide coach Nick Saban a chance to try the long field goal and now he probably wished he never did, given the stunning result. It was a great game, Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron said. Sometimes luck just isnt on your side. Its one of those crazy plays. Its almost like a video game. Thats something you do on Madden or NCAA. Its just a wild play. The entire field looked like a sea of orange shakers as the celebration continued long after the climactic finale of one of the biggest Iron Bowls in the bitter rivalrys 78-year history. It lived up to the billing and then some. According to NCAA records, it was only the fourth time that a missed field goal was returned for 100 yards, with LSUs Odell Beckham Jr. doing it against UAB early this season. This finale even one-upped Auburns last-gasp win over Georgia two weeks earlier.

Sports BRIEFS McIlroy trails Scott at Aussie Associated PressSYDNEY Adam Scott shot a 4-under 68 Saturday to take a four-shot lead over Rory McIlroy heading into the final round of the AustralianOpen and move closer to a Australian triple crown. Scott is trying to match Robert Allenbys 2005 accomplishment of winning the Open, Australian Masters and Australian PGA in succession. Scott also won the Masters at Augusta in April. Scott shot a course record 62 on the first day and followed with a second-round 70. Saturdays round of six birdies and two bogeys moved him to 16-under 200 for the tournament. McIlroy started the day two shots behind Scott and lost ground with a bogey and doublebogey against five birdies, finishing with a 70. McIlroy is vying for his first victory of the year. Australians Richard Green, Matthew Jones and Max McCardle shared third place at 8 under, eight shots off the pace. Scotts round on Saturday means he is now 51 under par for his three tournaments in Australia this year. To win my national championship tomorrow and then also win the three events down here is an unbelievable spot to be in, Scott said. If youd told me that a month ago, I wouldnt have believed you. Before this month started, I hadnt won two tournaments in a row ever. So to have this opportunity is a bit unreal. Scott said he would sleep easier after holing a six-foot birdie putt on the last hole and then watching McIlroy miss a birdie putt from closer range to increase the Australians lead. One round away and a lot can happen, he said. (Theres) a phenomenon behind me as well so Im sure hes going to throw plenty at me tomorrow. Im going to have to do a couple of things better than I did today. But as long as the eye stays in with the putter, I should be able to hang on. To finish it off tomorrow would be an incredible way to end the year. McIlroy said his missed birdie chance on 18 had been costly. It was big, he said. It would have been nice to birdie that to make the gap from four to three. Jason Day, who partnered with Scott to win the World Cup of golf for Australia last week, had the days equal-best round of 66 to briefly take the clubhouse lead but eventually that was only good for a tie for 10th.Schwartzel on course to defend at Alfred DunhillMALELANE, South Africa Charl Schwartzel opened a two-shot lead after three rounds at the Alfred Dunhill Championship. The defending champion shot a 5-under 67 on Saturday to move to 13 under and pull away from Englands Richard Finch at Leopard Creek. Victor Riu of France was another shot back at 10 under. Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters champion, led after three rounds at the South African Open last weekend before slipping up on the final day. He carded five birdies and no bogeys to lead outright with a round to play at the Alfred Dunhill, which he won by a dominant 12 shots a year ago for his last European Tour win and only victory on the circuit since the triumph at the 2011 Masters. He had five birdies and no bogeys to take the lead. Schwartzels coovernight leader, Morten Orum Madsen, shot a 7-over 79. After expressing his displeasure with the second-round pin placements at the Alfred Dunhill, Schwartzel avoided any slipups in his third round and has not dropped a shot since the 10th hole of his opening round. If I had really putted well today it could have been very low, Schwartzel said. The good thing is that I know its there. It very easily could have been low but it was still a solid round of golf and this is still a tough golf course. Finch and Riu also put themselves into contention with 5-under 67s, with Finch also avoiding any dropped shots and adding five birdies. Riu had six birdies and just a single drop on No. 18. Frenchman Romain Wattel is fourth on 9 under and Denmarks Soren Hansen fifth on 8 under. South African Hennie Otto second behind Madsen in the new 2014 Race to Dubai standings is tied for sixth with Englands Ross Fisher on 7 under, five back from Schwartzel. PGA Tour regular Brendon de Jonge is making steady progress and up to a tie for eighth on 6 under with a 68. Early money list leader Madsen had a disastrous third round after sharing the halfway lead with Schwartzel. The Dane had four bogeys going out and three bogeys and a double bogey coming home, and only two birdies. Associated PressRory McIlroy watches his tee shot Saturday during his third round of the Australian Open golf tournament in Sydney, Australia. McIlroy trails leader Adam Scott by four strokes heading into todays final round. Dolphins Martin will not return to team Offensive lineman placed on teams reserve list Associated PressDAVIE Jonathan Martins season is officially over. The Miami Dolphins put the troubled offensive tackle on the reserve/non-football illness list Saturday, freeing up his roster spot so safety D.J. Campbell could be promoted from the teams practice squad. The move was not unexpected. Martin left the Dolphins on Oct. 28, the start of what became an explosive probe into allegations that a culture of bullying was around the team and inside its locker room. Offensive lineman Richie Incognito was suspended Nov. 3 for his alleged role in the turmoil. Media reports Friday said the Dolphins and Incognito agreed to extend his suspension past the four-week window typically allowed by league rule, and that Incognito would resume getting paid. Investigator Ted Wells probe of the team and its workplace environment is ongoing.Seattles Harvin doubtful to play against SaintsRENTON, Wash. Percy Harvin is listed as doubtful to play Monday night for Seattle against the New Orleans Saints because of lingering soreness in his surgically repaired hip. Harvin made his debut with the Seahawks two weeks ago against the Minnesota Vikings and appeared in 21 total plays, 19 offensive snaps and two plays on special teams. Harvin made one catch for 17 yards and returned a kickoff 58 yards in his only two touches in the game.Bengals WR Sanu a perfect passer in NFLBengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu has yet to miss when he throws the ball in the NFL. The prep quarterback has gotten two chances to pass during his two seasons with Cincinnati, and hes been right on the mark both times for big plays. His latest was a 25-yard completion that started the Bengals toward a 41-20 win over Cleveland two weeks ago. Sanu lined up to the left, took a lateral from Andy Dalton and threw across the field, dropping the ball over a linebacker so running back Giovani Bernard could make a catch along the sideline. The completion set up Daltons touchdown pass for a 14-13 lead. As a rookie last season, Sanu lined up at quarterback on the first play from scrimmage, took the snap and threw an in-stride pass to A.J. Green for a 73-yard touchdown in Washington. Hes got a really good arm, Dalton said. When hes had his couple of chances, hes made some good plays. Sanu played quarterback at South Brunswick High School in New Jersey and threw for 900 yards one season. He also played receiver and safety. At Rutgers, he ran wildcat packages while setting a Big East record with 210 career catches. He doesnt get a chance to work on his passing during the week, which made his cross-field throw even more impressive. He was doing it cold. Youve just got to do it, Sanu said. Theres really no practice. Ive got to work on my craft as a receiver. I just do everything I can to make sure I get it there. I played quarterback a lot in my life, so its kind of like riding a bike.Here boyQuarterback Matt Hasselbeck has been dealing with some of the more unique challenges of switching teams in the same division. He was with the Tennessee Titans the past two seasons before they released him in March, then he signed with the Titans AFC South rivals, the Colts. His only regret? That he named the familys chocolate labrador Titan. So I get a lot of dirty looks now, Hasselbeck said. Thats never going to change. Oh well, I probably should have thought that through a bit more, but we really thought that was our last stop. Hasselbeck said he blames Titans quarterback Jake Locker for talking him into his familys first dog because Locker also bought a puppy from the same litter. Andrew Luck was over last night for dinner and he said, Whats your dogs name again? I was like, Uh, Titan, Hasselbeck said on a conference call with Tennessee reporters. One benefit from Hasselbecks time in Nashville is he didnt have to worry about selling a home because his family simply rented. Hasselbeck called it the greatest Nashville experience anyone could have. We ended up renting a house from Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, which was like a dream in itself, Hasselbeck said. It didnt seem real, but they were just great landlords, super nice people, and very considerate.Weight lossMike Pouncey temporarily dropped 15 pounds, and he doesnt recommend the diet. The Miami Dolphins center shed the weight when he came down with a gall bladder illness that sent him to the hospital for three nights in two stints. Once healthy, he said, his appetite gradually returned. At first, I didnt even like food because I was so scared of getting sick again, he said. Now Im back eating on a regular schedule, and Ive got all my weight back. It feels good to be back heavy. Pouncey, who plays at 305 pounds, planned to follow a big meal for Thanksgiving with being back in the lineup after missing two games. Miami is at the New York Jets today.Decembers to rememberTom Brady generally is considered the best of the December quarterbacks, and he has won 15 of his last 16 games during the month. Yet its his top rival for QB of his era, Peyton Manning, who is closing in on December records. Denvers Manning needs four touchdown passes this month to tie Brett Favres career mark of 116. Dan Marino is third with 110, followed by Drew Brees with 90, then Brady and Dave Krieg with 80.Early clinchingsDont look now, but two teams could clinch playoff berths this weekend. Seattle has the easiest road: If the Seahawks beat New Orleans in the Monday nighter, and Arizona loses, Seattle is in. Or if San Francisco loses and the Seahawks win, they have at least a wild card. Its more convoluted in the AFC West. Denver is at Kansas City. For the Broncos to grab a playoff berth, they must win and have the Chargers and Titans lose, and the Jets tie Miami. That same scenario exists for the Chiefs with a win, and they also could get in if both San Diego and Tennessee lose, and either Miami or New England falls. Associated PressMiami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin will not return to the team this season.

Still, the rookie will have his hands full this week against the Panthers, who have given up just 13.7 points per game, fewest in the NFL. Tampa Bay is 28th in the league in scoring. On the other side of the ball, Cam Newton continues to make plays and has led the Panthers to three straight come-from-behind victories. There are no trap games, Newton said. That is a stigma, a stereotype, a myth. In this league you have to always be prepared for the challenges it may bring. Five things to watch with the Bucs-Panthers:Running game woesNewton has led the Panthers in rushing the last two weeks and thats surely something offensive coordinator Mike Shula wants to change. Carolinas running backs have been stagnant as opposing defenses have stacked the box and forced Newton to beat them with his arm.Hurry it upWhen the Panthers struggled last week and fell behind early to the Miami Dolphins, Shula turned to a no-huddle offense to help speed up the tempo. It worked. Newton looked more comfortable running that style and the Panthers beat the Dolphins on a TD pass to Greg Olsen in the final minute. Rivera said its something the team will consider using more in the future.Its Rainey out thereWith four running backs on injured reserve, the Bucs have turned to Bobby Rainey to carry the ball and hes been a pleasant surprise. The second-year back from Western Kentucky has run for 243 yards and scored four TDs in Tampa Bays three wins.Turnover centralTurnovers are important in any game, but both defenses do a nice job of getting the ball back for their offense. Carolina has forced 24 turnovers this season, tied for second in the league. Tampa Bay, which had five takeaways last week against Detroit, has 24 on the season, tied for seventh best.Johnson factorThe Panthers are likely to be without defensive end Charles Johnson, who remains hobbled with a sprained knee. Johnson was leg-whipped in Carolinas Nov. 18 win over New England. Mario Addison played well in his absence last week. BUCSContinued from Page B1 Associated PressTampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Mike Glennon congratulates wide receiver Tiquan Underwood during the second quarter on Sunday, Nov. 24 at Ford Field in Detroit. alleged rape, hooked up with Benjamin for touchdown passes of 45 and 29 yards in the second quarter. Winston found his 6-foot-5 target again in the third, a 56-yard connection that would have gone the distance had Benjamin not fallen down while making the catch. Devonta Freeman scored on the next play, weaving untouched from 11 yards out and putting the Seminoles ahead 27-0. Winston and Benjamin recorded the hat trick with a 4-yard score in the fourth. FSU outgained Florida 456-193, most of it through the air. Winston completed 19 of 31 passes for 327 yards. Benjamin caught nine passes for a career-high 212 yards, beating Loucheiz Purifoy early and often. Benjamins previous high was 103 yards receiving at Boston College earlier this year. Just doing the little things to be a great receiver, basically, Benjamin said. About the only thing that went wrong for FSU was that testy exchange between Winston and coach Jimbo Fisher in the fourth quarter. Fisher was upset that Winston let the play clock wind down, forcing the team to call timeout. Winston screamed back at Fisher, who grabbed Winstons facemask on the sideline. The coach and player downplayed it afterward. Floridas defense held tough early, giving up just 33 yards and a field goal in the first quarter. Purifoy even intercepted Winstons fifth pass of the game, but the Gators failed to capitalize on the turnover. Austin Hardin missed a 49-yard field goal wide right. It was Floridas ninth missed field goal of the season. As the offense kept stalling, the defense started fading. Everybody started looking at the scoreboard as a collective group and saying, Dang, the offense is just three-and-out, three-and-out, three-andout, Florida defensive lineman Jon Bullard said. It certainly didnt help that Florida had to throw its offensive game plan out the window after four plays. Trey Burton hurt his left shoulder on his second carry of the game, a fitting finale for the injury-riddled Gators. Coach Will Muschamp said the plan was to line Burton up at quarterback for 35 plays. He ran twice for 47 yards, including a 50-yarder up the middle on his first carry. He injured his shoulder on his second run, Floridas fourth offensive play. He went to the locker room and later returned wearing street clothes. His left arm was in a sling and wrapped with ice. Obviously you dont want to go out like that, Burton said. I felt like I let my team down a little bit. Without him, Florida turned to freshman Skyler Mornhinweg. He struggled in his two previous games, throwing for 229 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception. Mornhinweg finished 20-of-25 passing for 115 yards. Floridas worst season in 34 years did nothing to affect Muschamps status for 2014. Athletic director Jeremy Foley held an impromptu news conference before the game and reiterated total confidence in Muschamp, but said weve got to fix some things on the offensive side of the ball. We havent made an excuse all year and were not going to make them now, Foley said. We know what this program is all about. I have total confidence in coach Muschamp and have made that clear. Weve got to fix some things. TAILContinued from Page B1 Associated PressFlorida running back Mack Brown tries to get past Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman during the second half Saturday in Gainesville. We played the game to win, Hoke said. Gardner tried to zip a pass to Drew Dileo into traffic near the goal line, but Powell came up with it and the quarterback was left lying on his back with his arms extended to his side, the back of his helmet resting on the cold turf. We felt like we could win the game right there, Gardner said, looking and sounding as saddened as any athlete after a setback. Buckeyes cornerback Roby Bradley recovered the onside kick to seal Ohio States 24th consecutive victory and keep its national championship hopes alive. And then thing got even better for the Buckeyes when Auburn beat Alabama later. Meyer insisted the streak was not as significant as winning his second game in as many tries against Michigan. No question the win over our rival is better, he said. Braxton Miller accounted for a career-high matching five touchdowns for Ohio State (12-0, 8-0) and Carlos Hyde ran for a 1-yard score with 2:20 left to make it 42-35. The Buckeyes left Ann Arbor knowing they will play Michigan State in the Big Ten title game next Saturday in Indianapolis, needing to beat the Spartans and have No. 1 Alabama or No. 2 Florida State lose a game to have a chance to reach the BCS national championship game. No. 4 Auburn provided an assist by defeating the Crimson Tide by returning a missed field goal 100 yards on the final play for a 34-28 victory. The Wolverines (7-5, 3-5) started strong as a 16 1-2-point underdog and didnt wilt when Ohio State went up 35-21 late in the third quarter, one drive after Gardner threw an incomplete pass on fourth-and-2 when Hoke opted against attempting a 31-yard field goal. They didnt let up at all, Miller said. Michigan, though, couldnt make a pivotal play in a shootout that mightve given it the biggest upset in the series since Bo Schembechlers first team at Michigan beat what Woody Hayes said was his best Buckeyes squad in 1969. I threw an interception that cost us the win, said Gardner, who limped into a news conference with a protective boot on his left foot. Thats what I will remember. Miller ran for 153 yards and three TDs and threw for 133 yards and two scores. Hyde ran for 226 yards to help Ohio State win for the ninth time in 10 games against Michigan, but he fumbled in the fourth quarter to help Michigan tie the game for a fourth time with 5:01 left. OSUContinued from Page B1 Associated PressPenn States Zach Zwinak tries to run past Wisconsins Chris Borland during the second half Saturday in Madison, Wis. Penn State won 31-24. PSU knocks off Badgers No. 8 Stanford repels Notre Dame; No. 9 Baylor holds off TCU Associated PressMADISON, Wis. Christian Hackenberg threw for 339 yards and four touchdowns, and Penn State pounced on a slew of blunders before holding off a late rally to upset No. 15 Wisconsin 31-24. Hackenberg, a freshman, showed the poise of a veteran in dissecting a tough defense. Eugene Lewis caught two touchdowns, including a 59-yarder for a 17-point lead with 13 minutes to go. The Nittany Lions (7-5, 4-4 Big Ten) secured a statement win against a team that had been dominant all year at home. Joel Stave threw for three touchdowns for Wisconsin (9-3, 6-2), though Penn State capitalized on second-half interceptions, turning one into Lewis long TD. The Badgers got within a touchdown late, but were picked off in the end zone with 1 second left.No. 8 Stanford 27, No. 25 Notre Dame 20STANFORD, Calif. Wayne Lyons intercepted two passes from Tommy Rees late in the fourth quarter, and No. 8 Stanford held off No. 25 Notre Dame 27-20 in the regularseason finale for both teams. The Cardinal (10-2) overcame two interceptions from Kevin Hogan and a penalty that wiped away another touchdown to win their 16th consecutive home game. Stanford will play for its second straight Pac-12 title and Rose Bowl berth next week when it faces No. 13 Arizona State in the conference championship game. Tyler Gaffney ran for 189 yards and a touchdown, and Hogan threw for 158 yards and a TD pass to Devon Cajuste to help the Cardinal take a 21-6 lead in the third quarter. Rees nearly rallied the Fighting Irish (8-4) by throwing two touchdown passes later in the quarter. But interceptions on Notre Dames final two drives dashed Notre Dames comeback.No. 9 Baylor 41, TCU 38FORT WORTH, Texas Bryce Petty threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, and Baylor returned two interceptions for scores. The Bears (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) scored 21 straight points on either side of halftime with just 1 yard from their high-powered offense and bounced back from a blowout loss at Oklahoma State to maintain their hopes for a share of the conference title. Baylor could win the league outright and qualify for a BCS bid, likely the Fiesta Bowl, if it beats Texas and the Cowboys lose to Oklahoma next Saturday. The Horned Frogs (4-8, 2-7) were in position to tie in the final seconds, but Casey Pachall threw his third interception on a pass tipped by receiver Brandon Carter and grabbed by Baylors Terrell Burt in the end zone with 11 seconds left.No. 11 Michigan State 14, Minnesota 3EAST LANSING, Mich. Jeremy Langford ran for 134 yards and a touchdown, and Michigan State wrapped up an unbeaten regular season in Big Ten play. The Spartans (11-1, 8-0) finished a perfect Big Ten regular season for only the third time. They also did it in 1965 and 1966, when they only had to play seven conference games. Michigan State will face Ohio State in the Big Ten championship game next weekend. The Spartans had already wrapped up the Legends Division title, but there was no letdown against Minnesota (8-4, 4-4). The Spartans top-ranked defense forced three turnovers and kept the Golden Gophers out of the end zone, repeating a formula that has brought Michigan State within a win of the Rose Bowl.No. 24 Duke 27, UNC 25CHAPEL HILL, N.C. Ross Martin kicked a 27-yard field goal with 2:22 left and Duke completed an improbable run to reach the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game. Anthony Boone threw for 274 yards and two touchdowns to Jamison Crowder as the Blue Devils (10-2, 6-2 ACC) clinched the Coastal Division championship with their eighth straight victory. DeVon Edwards interception with 13 seconds left clinched the longsuffering programs first 10-win season. Duke will face No. 2 Florida State next weekend in Charlotte, where the heavy underdog Blue Devils will go for their first ACC crown since 1989.No. 10 South Carolina 31, No. 6 Clemson 17COLUMBIA, S.C. Connor Shaw threw for one touchdown and rushed for another as No. 10 South Carolina won its record fifth straight over No. 6 Clemson with 31-17 victory. The Gamecocks (10-2) won their 18th straight at home, extending a school record set earlier this year. For Shaw, it capped the seniors home career at a perfect 17-0 as a starter in the sweetest way possible. The Tigers (10-2) had never lost five consecutive games to their rival in a series that began in 1896 which they still lead 65-42-4 all-time. The loss also left record-setting quarterback Tajh Boyd 0-for-4 against the Gamecocks. South Carolina put things away with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to break away from 17-all tie. Mike Davis had a 2-yard scoring run with 11:47 left and Pharoh Cooper threw a 26-yard TD pass to Brandon Wilds.

Dawson, SNF32-3216-195580 Gano, CAR30-3016-185578 NFLSTATISTICS Just 3 meetings with winners vs. winners this week Associated PressThe rematch has lost some of its luster with Kansas City dropping its last two games and Denvers collapse in New England after beating the Chiefs. Still, the AFC West showdown is far better than many other matchups this holiday week, and there remains plenty on the line. Only three games involve two teams with winning marks: Denver (9-2) at Kansas City (9-2); Arizona (7-4) at Philadelphia (6-5); and the Monday nighter, with New Orleans (9-2) at Seattle (10-1), a matchup of the top two teams in the AP Pro32 and in the NFC. The Broncos handed the Chiefs their first loss two weeks ago yep, they are meeting twice in three weeks in a scheduling quirk. Then San Diego torched what had been the leagues top defense when linebackers and sacks threats Tamba Hali and Justin Houston left with injuries. Hali expects to play. Houstons availability, just as critical for KC, is far less likely. Its a division game, thats the biggest thing. As the season goes on the playoff implications get bigger and bigger, Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. Regardless if we both lost last week, its still right there in front of us. No question, thats the focus. As it is in Denver, where folks are questioning Peyton Mannings ability to win in the cold after his so-so performance at New England. Temperatures are not projected to dip below freezing at Arrowhead Stadium today. Also today, its New England at Houston, Cincinnati at San Diego, Tennessee at Indianapolis, Tampa Bay at Carolina, Chicago at Minnesota, St. Louis at San Francisco, Miami at the New York Jets, the New York Giants at Washington, Jacksonville at Cleveland, and Atlanta vs. Buffalo at Toronto. The holiday week began Thursday with the Lions routing the Packers 40-10. Matthew Stafford made up for some mistakes with three touchdown passes, including one to Calvin Johnson, to help Detroit score 37 straight points. Dallas also won its traditional Thanksgiving game, with DeMarco Murray running for three touchdowns in a 31-24 victory over Oakland. The Cowboys (7-5) moved two games above .500 for the first time since late last season, while the Raiders (4-8) are guaranteed an 11th straight season without a winning record. The night matchup turned into another close game in the AFC North rivalry between Pittsburgh and Baltimore. Justin Tucker kicked five field goals, and the Ravens snuffed a conversion pass with 1:03 left to escape with a 22-20 victory. After Pittsburgh scored on a 1-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Jerricho Cotchery to get within two points, Roethlisbergers conversion pass slipped through the hands of Emmanuel Sanders. New Orleans (9-2) at Seattle (10-1), Monday night If this one is as memorable as their last meeting, in a 2010 divisional playoff game when the Seahawks, a 7-9 NFC West winner, knocked off the Saints, then it will be special. The league surely is hoping so by scheduling it for prime time. Marshawn Lynchs 67-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter remains a must-see highlight. Hes been a beast again this year, needing 75 yards to reach 1,000 for the fifth time in his career. Seattle has won a franchisebest 13 straight at home, and no one relishes visiting Century Link Field in the postseason. Nor does anyone really want to go to New Orleans, where the Saints are perfect in 2013. A Saints win will put them in prime position for NFC homefield advantage. Arizona (7-4) at Philadelphia (6-5) Two first-year coaches Arizonas Bruce Arians won NFL Coach of the Year as an interim in Indianapolis filling in last year for Chuck Pagano, who was battling leukemia with teams on the rise. The Cardinals have won four straight and havent won five in a row since 1977. Carson Palmer has had two consecutive big games, and Larry Fitzgerald tends to toy with the Philadelphia secondary. Fitzgerald was NFC offensive player of week following each of his last two games against the Eagles and has nine TD catches in five games against them. The Eagles have won three in a row. The offense under Chip Kelly has already set a franchise record with nine games of 400 total yards. The defense has held opponents to 21 points or less in each of the last seven games. New England (8-3) at Houston (2-9) Its a December game, which means the Patriots are more dangerous than ever. Theyve won 15 of their last 16 in the month, and they are getting healthier on offense, if not on defense. Their confidence should be soaring after rallying from a 24-0 hole at halftime to beat Denver last Sunday night. Houston has lost a franchiserecord nine in a row and is in contention for the top overall draft pick. Cincinnati (7-4) at San Diego (5-6) With the Broncos, Chiefs and Colts stumbling lately, the Bengals suddenly are in the mix for a first-round bye if they can surge to the AFC North title. The schedule isnt daunting, but this week the Chargers come off an uplifting win at Kansas City and are in the wild-card chase. San Diego plays four of its final five games at home, which would seem to give the Chargers an edge in that race. But they are only 2-2 at Qualcomm Stadium. Tennessee (5-6) at Indianapolis (7-4) The Titans have never won in Lucas Oil Stadium (0-5). A first victory there would make it a race again in the AFC South. Indy, though, has gone 26 consecutive games without back-toback losses. Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker and Colts linebacker Erik Walden will square off for the first time since Walden ripped off Walkers helmet and delivered a head butt, which drew Walden a one-game suspension from the NFL. Chicago (6-5) at Minnesota (2-8-1) The Bears have alternated wins and losses in each of the last seven weeks, and that should mean a victory in their last trip to the Metrodome before it is demolished. They have lost eight of their last 10 there. Maybe the spotlight belongs on the kick returners: NFL career record setter Devin Hester for Chicago, rookie Cordarrelle Patterson for the Vikes. Or maybe not: Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is 154 yards from 10,000 for his career, and the Bears banged-up defense is on track to give up more than 2,300 yards rushing. No, not on Sunday, despite how dangerous Peterson is, but for the entire season. St. Louis (5-6) at San Francisco (7-4) The Rams are seeking their first three-game winning streak of 2013 and have no fear of the 49ers after beating and tying them last year, when San Francisco went to the Super Bowl. Rams rookie WR Tavon Austin had a 65-yard TD run last week against Chicago for his fourth TD in a row from beyond midfield and sixth overall. Dont expect such long-range antics against a Niners defense that ranks sixth overall and is as physical as any. Receiver Michael Crabtree is expected to make his season debut for San Francisco following May surgery on a torn right Achilles tendon. Miami (5-6) at New York Jets (5-6) Hard to believe one of these teams will be solidly in wild-card contention after they meet at the Meadowlands. New Yorks wins and losses in alternating weeks ended with a defeat at Baltimore last Sunday, and rookie QB Geno Smith seems lost. It doesnt help that other than RB Chris Ivory, he has virtually no skilled players at the skill positions. Miami is the only team to score less than 28 points in every game. It hopes to get back center Mike Pouncey, who missed two games with a stomach ailment. New York Giants (4-7) at Washington (3-8) The NFL didnt flex this game away from prime time, perhaps hoping one of these NFC East weaklings would have made a turnaround. The Giants were doing so with four consecutive victories following an 0-6 start, but they fell at home to Dallas last weekend. At least New York has found a running game. Andre Brown has rushed for 308 yards in three games after returning from a broken leg. The Redskins have lost three straight and clinched a 10th nonwinning record in 13 years. Washington is 0-4 in night games this season. Jacksonville (2-9) at Cleveland (4-7) Remember that almostguaranteed top overall draft pick for Jacksonville next May? It is disappearing quickly as the Jags won two of their last three. Just when the Browns seemed to have a shot at a run to the postseason, theyve dropped two straight within the AFC North. Theyre back to Brandon Weeden at quarterback with Jason Campbell having a concussion. His best target, Josh Gordon, set a team record with 237 yards receiving last week and tied a team mark with 14 catches. Atlanta (2-9) vs. Buffalo (4-7) at Toronto Remember how close the Falcons were to making the Super Bowl last season? One play. Now, they are in strong contention to start off the draft next spring, a shocking collapse. Atlanta was the first NFC team eliminated from the playoff picture. Buffalo is 1-4 in the regular season in games at the Rogers Centre. Not many big-time games Associated PressDenver wide receiver Eric Decker and the Broncos take on the Kansas City Chiefs today. The winner assumes sole possession of first place in the AFC West division.

ALIWATKINS McClatchy Washington BureauWASHINGTON The National Security Agencys collection of information on Americans cellphone and Internet usage reaches far beyond the two programs that have received public attention in recent months, to a presidential order that is older than the Internet itself. Approved by President Ronald Reagan in 1981, Executive Order 12333 (referred to as twelve-triple-three) still governs most of what the NSA does. It is a sweeping mandate that outlines the duties and foreign intelligence collection for the nations 17 intelligence agencies. It is not governed by Congress, and critics say it has little privacy protection and many loopholes. What changes have been made to it have come through guidelines set by the attorney general or other documents. The result is a web of intelligence law so complicated that it stymies even those tasked with interpreting it. As one former executive official said, Its complicated stuff. Confusing though it may be, the order remains the primary authority under which the countrys intelligence agencies conduct the majority of their operations. Neither the office of Attorney General Eric Holder nor that of Director of National Intelligence James Clapper would comment about 12333. Under its provisions, agencies have the ability to function outside the confines of a warrant or court order, if approved by the attorney general. Its Section 2.5 effectively gives the attorney general the right to authorize intelligence agencies to operate outside the confines of judicial or congressional oversight, so long as its in pursuit of foreign intelligence including collecting information of Americans. The Attorney General hereby is delegated the power to approve the use for intelligence purposes, within the United States or against a United States person abroad, of any technique for which a warrant would be required, 12333 reads. Monitoring the actual content of Americans communications still requires a warrant under 12333, but metadata the hidden information about a communication that tells where a person is, who hes communicating with, even the number of credit cards used in a transaction can be swept up without congressional or court approval. The impact of 12333 is enormous and largely unknown. Documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden suggest that less than half of the metadata the NSA has collected has been acquired under provisions of the USA Patriot Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the two laws that have received the most attention for permitting NSA programs. Gen. Keith Alexander, the NSA director, has ratified that impression, saying that the majority of NSA data is collected solely pursuant to the authorities provided by Executive Order 12333. At the time the order was written, the nations intelligence community was dealing with a shattered reputation after decades of widespread abuses. The Church Committee a special congressional panel tasked in the 1970s Despite perception, the Tampa Bay region has made strides in the past five years to address transportation. Trends, revenues and leaders have changed, but the mission has progressed. TIA and the Ports of Tampa and Manatee are undergoing ambitious transformation. HART has implemented this regions first premium rapid transit, with fewer stops and faster end-to-end speed. Transit agencies in Citrus and Hernando counties are working together, considering how to deliver more efficient service and increase value to bi-county populations. And in a first for the region, Citrus and Hernando have agreed to join together in transportation planning for the future. In Pinellas, there is significant discussion and anticipation of a referendum on a package of transit improvements (bus, rail) called Greenlight Pinellas. And FDOT is leading the implementation of construction projects and looking to the future with express lanes, intermodal centers, variably priced tolling, and technologies such as autonomous vehicles. Policy advances by the legislature have lead to significant private sector interest in the delivery of transportation services and facilities: the region has attracted a private bid to build new infrastructure. Whats common in the progress? Its all part of the regions transportation vision articulated in the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authoritys (TBARTA) master plan. Such an expansive vision for 2050 was never assumed to happen all at once, or neatly. Pieces and elements would come together slowly, depending on demand and funding. We hear it all the time: speak in unison, as a region, to articulate the goals and priorities. We dont assume to speak for each community and its unique needs, but we do see the importance of regionalism, to galvanize voices, and move things forward. TBARTA will continue to work with all partners to maintain strategic focus, to elevate the importance of regional connections, advocate for cooperation and consistency, and assist in fighting for funding at a regional level.Bob Clifford is the executive director of TBARTA. Send a check for United Way of Citrus County The Citrus County economy is showing signs of recovery, but the going is slow. One strong indication that we are still struggling can be seen in the annual campaign for the local United Way. Because of a reduction of employees at some of the major companies, the annual fundraising campaign is going slow. It has become a tradition at the Chronicleto each year ask our subscribers to kick in and help with the campaign. This year, I would ask that you consider making a $30 contribution to the effort. In most communities around the country the United Way gets the majority of its funding from the employees with the major companies in town. In Citrus County that means Duke, Publix, the hospitals, the school system, county workers, etc. But Citrus has that unique economic reality whereby more than 50 percent of the local residents are retired and thereby dont have the opportunity to be asked to contribute. Most who are employed work for small retailers and its difficult to have fundraising campaigns and payroll deductions. So today, I am asking you to help. I was involved in the creation of United Way back in 1985 after there was a charity event and the money was stolen. One of the great things United Way brings to the table is that the local board of directors makes sure your contributions are being spent appropriately. We hear so much about fraud and misuse of funds by scam artists that its hard to know how to contribute to help people in need. In our community, the United Way pays close attention to how every dollar is being spent. In recent years, the organization has identified three large problems that need to be addressed in our community. They are income (or lack of it), education and health. All of the funds United Way raises are pumped into nonprofit groups that are out trying to deal with those issues. Most of the issues are See WINDOW/ Page C3 Gerry MulliganOUT THE WINDOW COMMENTARY Section CSUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Bob CliffordGUEST COLUMN LIVE UNITED United Way of Citrus County needs y our help f or its annual fundraising goal.

OPINION Page C2SUNDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2013 Saving lives through volunteerismThere was an article in the Nov. 15 Chroniclestating the American Cancer Society is seeking volunteers for the Road to Recovery program. These volunteer drivers would provide transportation to and from treatments for cancer patients. About 25 years ago, my mother was a cancer patient who needed radiation treatment, five days a week for five to six weeks. She did not drive, and between my husband and myself there was one car, which he used on his job. I took public transit (bus). Daily cab fare two ways for that length of time would be very costly, and my mother had been a widow for a number of years. Her friends did not drive and all were widows. I had no relatives within a 75-mile radius, and my husbands were all working or did not drive. Unless a neighbor is an extremely close friend of many years, retired, and drives, you cannot think of asking someone such a burdensome favor. Philadelphia had such a program, fortunately, of volunteer drivers to transport cancer patients to and from their treatments. The drivers were all unbelievably kind. Having needed such volunteer drivers desperately ourselves, I hope anyone out there reading this letter, who can, will volunteer. You are literally saving lives by volunteering. The phone number is 800227-2345 and it is a national number. When you call, they will give you the appropriate number for your locale.Margo B. Blum Homosassa Ill never forget the call. It was mid-afternoon and I was engrossed in a writing project on a deadline for publication. My assistant shouted from the next office Jack, this is a call you need to take. I grabbed the phone and said This is Jack, may I help you? The voice was strong and official: Is this Jack Levine, the son of Ruth Levine? I knew right away this was not good news. Im a patrol officer with the Boca Raton Police Department. Your mother has been in an auto accident and shes en route to the hospital. How is she? I gasped. All I can share is shes conscious, but further information will have to be provided by medical personnel. Here is the phone number to call at the emergency admission center. I live in Tallahassee. Boca Raton is a seven-hour drive, and any flights would not get me there any faster. So I was in my car within an hour, heading south. Heres what happened. A new high school was being built just a mile from my moms condo on a road that she used every day for shopping and other errands. During the nearly two years of construction, a series of flashing yellow lights warned drivers of trucks entering or leaving the site. My mom got accustomed to slowing down in the zone, but on this one mid-afternoon the flashing yellow turned red. It was the first day of classes for the brand-new school. She didnt know that. A teen driver zoomed out of the driveway he had a green light and slammed into my Moms car, spinning it into a sign pole. Her head was hit hard against the side window and she sustained impact bruising, but no bone breaks. I visited later that night. She was resting comfortably in her hospital bed, but from that day forward she was never the same. At age 77, without ever having been in a car crash in nearly 50 years of driving, as a result of that accident she would not be able to drive again. Her mental condition was altered by the head trauma, she remained disoriented in matters of space and speed, and her confidence was shot. This unpredictable event triggered a series of symptoms that eventually resulted in severe dementia that lasted for the rest of her life. She passed at age 84. Here is a fact that is a demographic reality: 10,000 people are turning age 65 every day in our nation, and the great majority of them are active drivers. That is why Im dedicated to awareness of AARPs Older Driver Safety Awareness Week, co-hosted by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), scheduled from Dec.2 through Dec.6. This annual awareness week is an initiative that aims to promote an understanding of how important mobility and transportation are to ensuring older adults remain active and safe in their communities. This is essential for ensuring not only the health of the driver, but also is crucial for the wellbeing of their passengers (both adults and children), other drivers, as well as pedestrians. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety: one-third of all fatal crashes involving older Americans occur at intersections; thirty-five percent of all traffic violations involving drivers 55-plus are because of the failure to yield the proper rightof-way; one in four traffic violations involving drivers 55-plus involves making an improper left turn; fifteen percent involved an improper lane change; and 10 percent are the result of ignoring a stop sign or traffic light. Its no surprise that the driving experience today is significantly different from even a decade ago changing vehicles, changing technology, changing road rules, and everchanging roadways. That change is often hardest on those who are farthest removed from their first and likely only driving course. AARPs Driver Safety Program works to change that through its nationwide driving refresher course, with 15million graduates to date. Visit www.aarp.org/homegarden/transportation/driver_ safety/ for access to a wealth of resources for older drivers and family members of all ages. Knowing the basics has never been more important, and AARP Driver Safety is a leading authority on best practices for healthy and safe drivers age 50 and older. During Older Driver Safety Awareness Week, key tips are shared on some of the driving challenges that most commonly affect older drivers, including: Best practices for sharing the road with other vehicles, including motorcycles and bicycles. Stopping distance and merging. Proper rules for roundabouts and stop-sign compliance. Techniques for adjusting mirrors to reduce blind spots. I sincerely hope that no one ever receives the life-changing call I had to take on that fateful afternoon when my Moms lifetime of safe driving literally came to a crashing halt. By understanding the challenges our older drivers face, we can all benefit.Jack Levine is founder of the 4Generations Institute in Tallahassee. Email Jack@4Gen.org.

Its been a rough road for the financially distressed public hospital system, sometimes cast as the hapless child of warring, control-hungry parents in this case the Citrus County Hospital Board (CCHB) and the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation. We applauded the governing bodies each time they signaled goodwill and acted cooperatively in the search for the right partner to buy or lease CMH and ensure the future of quality health care for our community. The two boards, apparently emerging from a four-year struggle for control of the health system, seemed to be moving together toward a long-term lease deal with Hospital Corporation of America (HCA). They finally were aligning together behind the goal of putting the communitys best interest first. However, thanks to micromanagement attempts and a resurgence of power-playing, the deal may be in jeopardy. Every day that passes with more infighting instead of solid agreement is costly and dangerous, according to the transaction attorneys. Time is not our friend, one said. We need to move this deal forward. Both boards have agreed to sign a letter of intent with HCA. But the hiccup this time, surfaced by the local attorneys, is timing of the settlement of lawsuits the boards have pending against each other. The CCHBs attorney flatly asserted that refusing to dismiss the suits until the deal finally closes is leverage against the Foundation. Sounds like the war is still on, doesnt it? These are the same people, with the same attorneys, who brought us to the point of needing to sell or lease the public hospital to ensure its continued existence. And these are the same people, with the same attorneys, who are putting at risk everything thats been worked on so diligently over the past several months. Every day that passes devalues the hospital and increases the possibility of losing a willing partner. We say again: Get over it. And get on with it. This is not about you or your attorneys. Its about the people and the community you serve. Do the right thing and move this deal with HCA forward now.

A considerable amount of people spent considerable effort to obtain the Three Sisters property for the specific purpose of preserving it as a refuge and to preserve it in its natural state. It seems he wants a park, like Blue Springs. Evidently he does not know that at Blue Springs, you cant get within 20 feet of a manatee without getting in trouble with the law.

interconnected. Residents who did not complete their education often have trouble earning enough money to survive. And residents who dont earn enough money often scrimp on health care because they cant afford the costs. The key to improve the quality of life in Citrus County is to put more people to work in good jobs so they can help improve their own lives. We published a news story last week in theChroniclethat perfectly documents how this happens. A young woman couldnt get a job because she didnt have the right training. And she had trouble getting to school so she could get the training she needed. Amy Meek, the CEO of our local United Way, went to work and helped the young woman get enrolled at WTI in Inverness so she could become an auto mechanic. Then Ms. Meek worked with the folks at Village Toyota to donate a vehicle so the young woman would have the transportation she needed to get to school. With the barriers knocked down, this young woman is now in charge of her future. Progress happens one family at a time. If you would like to be part of the solutions in Citrus County I would urge you to make a contribution to the United Way. You can send your check to my address at The Chronicle, 1624 N. Meadowcrest Blvd., Crystal River, FL 34429. On this Thanksgiving weekend, we should each remember that we have a lot to be thankful about. With just a little effort, we can help others in our community help themselves through a United Way program. Giving is all about helping people.Gerry Mulligan is the publisher of the Chronicle.

Fred 3 replied, Sounds a whole lot like your column, Dad, except on Facebook the readers have a chance to respond. Touch. I thought it would be a flash in the pan, but for almost 10 years, it has continued to go strong. It has captured my wife, my children, my grandchildren and virtually all of my extended family. Thats a story within itself. Cheryl became a Facebook enthusiast and managed to enchant many folks who are or used to be named Brannen. Much quicker than I would have thought, it became as though she was their blood relative and I was just the dull guy to whom she was married. Same goes for my high school classmates, friends I knew growing up, and the rest of humanity. I still dont own a cellphone and, up until a few days ago, I used my computer primarily as a writing or accounting tool, exchanging only the emails necessary to survive in this modern world. I had watched Cheryl do her thing on Facebook and became convinced that it was a timeconsuming black hole, something I could most surely do without. I was certain that if I joined myself to this social media monster, it would be as though I was on a train headed straight for bottomless canyon over which the bad guys had already blown up the trestle. But Cheryl was just having too much fun. I found myself reading over her shoulder. No, I wasnt suspicious, only envious of her laughter and the exchanges that took place between her and other folks I know and love, electronic conversations in which I wasnt included. I finally had to face reality. It is not going away, and, if I cant lick it, Id best join it. Even though I remain concerned that it is a train heading for a wreck with the final destination being some sort of cosmic emptiness, I decided to jump on board. Up until now, the Facebooking world has been kind to me. During my first week, Ive accumulated quite a number of friends. My very first friend was daughter Becky. Her advice when I related that I was scared out of my wits was I should start by taking baby steps. Of course, that brought on delightful memories of her as a toddler when she was most certainly taking baby steps. BethyPooh helped me post my first pictures. And son Fred made no smart-aleck remarks when he accepted me as his Facebook friend, in spite of our exchange on the subject many years ago. So, while I am keeping my eyes on the track ahead and looking for a window to jump out if I see a missing trestle, for right now, Im on the train. Fred Brannen is an Inverness resident and a Chronicle columnist. Fred BrannenA SLICE OF LIFE Sequester originated in White HouseIn a letter to the editor on Nov. 11, Congress responsible for sequester Stan Clewett states that the Congress devised it and a letter published on Oct. 30 incorrectly blames the president. Mr. Clewett you should check the facts. The sequester was proposed by the Obama White House in 2011. Gene Sperling (White House National Economic Council Director), Jack Lew (White House Budget Director), and Rob Nabors (White House Legislative Affairs Director) came up with the idea. The Democrats were trying to increase the debt limit and the Republicans wanted spending cuts to offset any increases. They were getting nowhere so a committee of eight was formed, four members from each party, to come up with a proposal they could vote on. They couldnt come up with a proposal to which they all agreed. The three directors, Sperling, Lew and Nabors then came up with the idea of the sequester. They took it to Sen. Harry Reid who liked the idea. It was to be used as a trigger to get the Republicans to agree to increasing the debt limit without cuts in spending. President Obama bought into the idea of sequestration as a way to get the Republicans to cave into his demands for increased spending without cuts. However, the Republicans surprised him, they agreed to include it in the Budget Control Act of 2011. After the President signed the Act into law., the Obama White House described the Budget Control Act with sequestration included as a win for the economy and budget discipline. This was an idea hatched by the presidents people, approved by Harry Reid and the president as a way of getting what they wanted from the Republicans, increased spending and taxes without any cuts. Both Gene Sperling and Jack Lew have since admitted the idea of sequestration originated in the White House. Then on Feb. 19, Jay Carney admitted that sequestration was an idea that the White House put forward. As for your statement the tea party Republicans are determined to derail the nations economy, they havent had to because the president has done a pretty good job of that. The unemployment rate is still at 7.3 percent; although the actual rate is closer to 14 percent if you count the people that have given up looking for work or are underemployed. Also the Federal Reserve keeps pumping $85 billion a month into the markets to keep the markets artificially high. He has also spent hundreds of billions of dollars on stimulus plans that did little other than make a lot of people wealthy. On top of that, our national debt continues to grow, from $10.3 trillion when he took office to over $17 trillion today. Mr. Clewett you should check out the tea party. Its made up of Republicans, Democrats and Independents who still believe in the Constitution, our Bill of Rights, small government, balanced budgets and being responsible for yourself and your actions. Kind of radical isnt it.Bob Balogh HomosassaEPA has gone too farEditors note: The following letter was sent to Rep. Richard Nugent, Sen. Bill Nelson and Sen. Marco Rubio.As your constituent, I am asking that you stand tough against the thuggish tactics of Obama Administration. Obamas Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is turning up the heat on those who dont play ball, forcing the closure of the nations last remaining lead smelting plant, thereby creating dire consequences for employees, their families and the millions of firearm owners across the country. This is quite simply a continued attack on our Second Amendment rights bringing with it the distinct possibility hard working Americans being collateral damage with their job loss. The nations last remaining lead smelting plant provides lead for ammunition used in firearms nationwide. Without the lead, ammunition will become scarcer and costs will continue to rise a turn of events that is sure to delight the gun-grabbing leftists in Washington. You cannot let that happen. I find it disturbing that the EPA is using thuggish tactics in demanding that the Doe Run Company, which has operated for more than a century, pay $65 million to be in compliance with the EPAs restrictions and also pay a $7 million civil penalty. The EPA laughably gloats that Doe Run has made a business decision to close down the plant, leaving the plants 218 employees and contractors out of work. This is not the hope and change Americans signed on for. The Obama Administration, having been thwarted in their efforts to curtail Second Amendment rights time and time again by principled gun owners, have now tasked the EPA with doing their dirty work by making ammunition scarcer and more expensive. You have taken an oath to uphold and protect the Constitution. As your constituent, I expect you to keep that promise. Like the IRS, the EPA has become an enforcer in the Obama regime and its time for them to go. While maintaining protections for the environment remain important, the EPAs heavy-handed tactics prove that they are not protectors of the environment, but enforcers of the leftist agenda. Send a message you will not tolerate these efforts to bully Americans into intimidation! Call for the defunding of the EPA!Mr. Earl Ehley InvernessDrowning in party politicsApparently, the tea party is the new cause for all that is wrong in Washington according to those that submit to this forum, their inflexibility has caused the failure of the Obamacare website, also the fact that we will not be able to keep our doctors or the insurance policies we were promised we could. Their inflexibility rammed through the legislation that apparently no one read and now they are violating the law they created by making special exceptions. By spending more than what we have the tea party has caused the first ever downgrade of our financial standing in the world. The tea party is also the cause of a budget not being passed because they will not sit down and discuss cuts to their favorite giveaway programs. The chairman of the national tea party was instrumental in all party members voting for a flawed law using a tactic that was originally meant for budget matters only, and has saddled almost 70percent of the population with a law they dont want. Now those terrible tea partiers have changed 225 years of rules to achieve unilaterally the placement of judges in the judiciary to further the far-Right wing agenda. Huh? Oh wait, it wasnt the tea party that has done this? Really? Democrats? No, cmon, they are all about fairness. Sorry tea party, I was misled by those who do nothing more than parrot the Democrat party line.Mike Dragoun Lecanto WINDOWContinued from Page C1 Thank-YouLETTERS Great care at CMHWe are very fortunate to have Citrus Memorial right here in our county especially in the field of cardiology. I recently had a triple bypass led by Dr. Peter Kim and assisted by Dr. V. Kamat, Dr. Nerrella and Dr. Kannam. The nurses and staff were wonderful. Unfortunately, when the name of Citrus Memorial is discussed we are influenced by the headlines of political rhet oric rather than the fine facility we have. The staff was exceptionally kind and they endorse Citrus Memorial by saying if a member of their family needed heart surgery they would bring them here to Dr. Kim, even if they lived in the northeast. Following surgery I was transported to Diamond Ridge for rehab. My private room resembled a hotel suite. The same kindness and care at the hospital was extended at Diamond Ridge. Even though I was happy to return home, the kindness I experienced made it difficult saying goodbye to the wonderful medical staff who saved my life.Pete DElia HernandoMaking a differenceThe Make A Difference Day Post Office Food Drive was a huge success this year. Residents of Citrus County once again responded and donated 41,625 pounds of food to help those in our community who are hungry and need our support in these difficult times. The amount collected was a 6percent increase over last year. The Community Food Bank of Citrus County, Citrus United Basket and the eight participating food pantries who directly benefited from this food drive Beverly Hills Community Church; Citrus County Family Resource Center; Citrus United Basket; DayStar Life Center; Floral City Church of Christ and First Baptist Church of Floral City; The Salvation Army; and We Care Food Pantry are extremely grateful to our residents for your overwhelming generosity and support and the many others who helped make this food drive a success. Food drives of this magnitude need lots of people to make them successful. Our special thanks to the United States Postal Service, each of the Postmasters, their staffs, and the letter carriers who are so supportive of this food drive each year. Of course, we also need to thank the many volunteers who donate their time and efforts behind the scenes to get the food from each of the post offices to the local food pantry in your community and the hundreds of volunteers who work every day at these food pantries to distribute the food. Collectively, we are making a difference in the lives of those who need our communitys support. Thank you again for being part of this great team of volunteers.U.S. Postal ServiceA Howl-o-ween thank youPrecious Paws Rescue would like to thank everyone who participated in our recent Howl-o-ween events. Special thanks go to the Crystal River Mall management and staff, and the management and staff of Piercing Pagoda. Cheryl Burns, manager of Piercing Pagoda, saw to the construction and carry-out of the amazing haunted house, Little Shop of Terrors. Students from various county high schools were the zombies, ghouls and ghosts on hand to scare the good citizens and their children. The attraction was such a success and great fun for the participants and the public. Since the Crystal River Mall management allowed Precious Paws to open an adoption Center three years ago for the rent of $1 a month, we have been continually amazed at the generosity of the people at the mall, not only the mall management and staff, but the other store owners and their staff. Our thanks for their support and friendship cannot be understated. And of course, thank you to all those who donated pet food and money to help our foster animal program.Martha Bowman board member emeritus Precious Paws Rescue Floral CityThanks from Daystar Daystar Life Center thanks the Citrus Hills Golf & Country Club for hosting a Food for Daystar golf tournament that signed up an overflow of 120 people to play on the Oaks course.

Special thanks go to Steve Fischer, golf pro, shop assistants Chris Morabito, Kathy Saltsman and Don McIntyre for ensuring the success of the golf tournament. Also thanks to Laura Lambert (director of catering) and the kitchen staff for putting out a great lunch after the tournament. This is the third year in a row and the success of the tournament couldnt have been done without the aforementioned people.

with investigating intelligence abuses had revealed CIA efforts to cover up the Watergate scandal, the CIAs opening of Americans mail, and the agencys efforts to assassinate Cubas Fidel Castro. Executive Order 12333 was intended to bolster a reeling intelligence community and further define its authority to conduct foreign intelligence gathering. The global telecommunications network didnt exist, and collecting foreign communications posed little risk for Americans data to be swept up in the dragnet. But in the three decades since 12333 was written, global communications have changed dramatically. The order, however, has not. In 1996, when (12333) was 15 years old, we said, Gee, this probably ought to be revised. Now were more than 15 years after that, said John Bellinger, a former legal adviser to the National Security Council during the presidency of George W. Bush. Still, the order hasnt undergone any major change, in part, because its so difficult and complex to change it, he said. Even those who argue that the National Security Act of 1947 requires that Congress be kept fully and currently informed about significant intelligence activities say 12333 activities receive little oversight. The problem, legal experts and lawmakers say, is that only the executive branch and the intelligence agencies that are part of it determines what fully and currently informed means and what details it needs to share with Congress. Theres no clear definition, said House Intelligence Committee member Adam Schiff, DCalif., who recently sparred with fellow committee members over whether the NSA had briefed the panel on its monitoring of German Chancellor Angela Merkels cellphone. We need to have a bigger discussion of what our mutual understanding is of what we want to be informed of. Schiff isnt alone in raising questions about how wellinformed Congress is kept of activities undertaken under 12333 authorities. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, DCalif., who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, has called for a broad review of whats taking place under 12333, noting that the order authorizes phone and email metadata collection beyond what the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act does. Feinstein has consistently defended the NSAs collection of domestic cellphone metadata, saying the program under which it is doing so is overseen by both the courts and Congress. But even she has said the 12333 programs skirt similar protections. The other programs do not (have the same oversight as FISA). And thats what we need to take a look at, she said, adding that her committee has not been able to sufficiently oversee the programs run under the executive order. Twelvetriple-three programs are under the executive branch entirely. Feinstein has also said the order has few, if any, privacy protections. I dont think privacy protections are built into it, she said. Its an executive policy. The executive controls intelligence in the country. Intelligence officials have said that each respective agencys 12333 collection is governed by supplemental guidelines written by the attorney general and that those guidelines protect Americans data. But intelligence officials have admitted that most of those guidelines have not been revisited in decades and that they dont offer the same protections as the metadata collection programs authorized under the Patriot Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. A glimpse of those classified guidelines emerged at a hearing convened earlier this month of the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, which Congress created in 2004 to oversee the governments expanded intelligence collection operations, but that until that meeting had never conducted a substantive hearing. Pressing a panel of intelligence community lawyers, board members asked what evidence is required before U.S. intelligence agents are allowed to sift through metadata collected under 12333. They learned that virtually none is required. Jim Dempsey, a member of the board who is the vice president for public policy at the Center for Democracy and Technology, a Washington-based organization encouraging free and open Internet, asked whether it was right that 12333 records can be searched without establishing a reasonable, articulable suspicion, the standard needed for searching records collected under the Patriot Act or FISA. The NSAs deputy general counsel, Rajesh De, acknowledged that that standard might not apply. I think, yeah, he said. But he declined to say what rules might apply, referring by using jargon. I dont know if weve declassified sort of minimization procedures, he said. But there are different rules that apply. Even those rules whatever they are can be broken, both intentionally and unintentionally. When they are, there is no requirement that the violation be reported outside the executive branch. According to an internal memo leaked by Snowden and published in August, the NSA saw more than 2,000 compliance violations with its 12333 programs in the span of a year, from March 2011 to March 2012. For comparison, the agency tracked just over 700 violations in the same period in the telephone and Internet metadata collection programs that have received so much attention. The 12333 violations were not reported to the congressional intelligence committees. Intelligence community leaders have been loath to address 12333 issues when testifying before Congress. During a recent House Judiciary Committee hearing into metadata collections, Director of National Intelligence Clapper refused to answer when asked about specific violations. The subject matter of the hearing was Section 215 and 702, said Clapper, referring to sections of the Patriot Act and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, respectively. And these violations ... (occurred) under the auspices of Executive Order 12333. Feinstein has said publicly that she thinks more attention needs to be paid to what takes place under 12333. A bill recently approved by the Senate Intelligence Committee would require increased congressional oversight of 12333, including more detailed reporting of what guidelines govern access to information collected under it and violations of those guidelines.

Encrypted email, secure instant messaging and other privacy services are booming in the wake of the National Security Agencys recently revealed surveillance programs. But the flood of new computer security services is of variable quality, and much of it, experts say, can bog down computers and isnt likely to keep out spies. In the end, the new geek wars between tech industry programmers on the one side and government spooks, fraudsters and hacktivists on the other may leave peoples PCs and businesses computer systems encrypted to the teeth but no better protected from hordes of savvy code crackers. Every time a situation like this erupts youre going to have a frenzy of snake oil sellers who are going to throw their products into the street, says Carson Sweet, CEO of San Francisco-based data storage security firm CloudPassage. Its quite a quandary for the consumer. Encryption isnt meant to keep hackers out, but when its designed and implemented correctly, it alters the way messages look.

The revelations are sparking fury and calls for better encryption from citizens and leaders in France, Germany, Spain and Brazil who were Oil little changed above $92 a barrel NEW YORK The price of oil was little changed above $92 a barrel Friday as holidays in the U.S. thinned trading and plentiful crude stocks showed the market was well supplied. By early afternoon in Europe, benchmark U.S. crude for January delivery was up 27 cents at $92.57 a barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile. Crudes last settlement was Wednesday as floor trading on the Nymex was closed Thursday for Thanksgiving. Oil has declined from about $110 in September due to reduced tensions in the oil-rich Middle East, but above all due to muted demand and high supplies. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils, was down 39 cents at $110.92 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London. Markets subdued amid shortened day LONDON Financial markets were subdued Friday as investors digested a run of economic figures in Europe and awaited clues on the strength of U.S. consumer spending on the first day of the Christmas shopping season. In Europe, the FTSE 100 index of leading British shares closed down 0.1 percent at 6,650.52 while Germanys DAX rose 0.2 percent to 9,405.30. The CAC-40 ended 0.1 percent lower at 4,294.21. The tepid tone markets was evident in the performance of the euro, which was little changed around the $1.3605 mark, even though the figures make it less likely that the ECB will loosen policy further next week a development that could have weighed on Europes single currency. The travel industry is offering promotions large and small for CyberMonday. Some companies are participating for the first time, while others are embracing the online holiday sale in a bigger way than in the past. NEW YORK merican Express Travel is launching its first-ever CyberMonday promotion, with substantial hotel discounts and deals throughout the U.S. and Canada for Jan.13 to 31. The promotions will be bookable at www.amextravel. com beginning Monday at 12:01a.m. and will last 72 hours. Liberty Travel has participated in CyberMonday before, but the volume of deals and their promotion is bigger this year and offers deeper savings. Liberty has assembled 99 deals with up to 65 percent off, bookable Black Friday through CyberMonday, featuring resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico along with cruises and escorted tours. Liberty is also giving a credit of up to $100 on all new bookings made in Liberty Travel stores Friday to Monday.GetaBlack Friday code at http://www. LibertyTravel.com, then present it to an agent to take $50, $75 or $100 off (depending on how much you spend) on trips worth $2,500 or more. Priceline.com is doing a oneday sale beginning at 12:01a.m. Monday promising percent off flights for travel before Dec.18 on select flights from unsold inventory. Spokeswoman Leslie Cafferty says there are a lot of options for those who are there first, advising deal-seekers to start searching early. George Hobica of Airfare Watchdog.com says the hipper newer airlines like Virgin America and JetBlue have participated in CyberMonday airfare sales in the past. But he says they often simply bring out their usual Tuesday or Wednesday promo code sales wrapped up in a CyberMonday package. For cruise-lovers, Royal Caribbean will offer onboard credits of $50, $100 and $200 per stateroom (depending on length of cruise) as well as reduced Beth J. H arpaz A P travel editor deposits for departures Jan.1 or later. The offer applies to bookings with paid deposits made Dec.2 to 4 at www.royalcaribbean.com or via 800-RoyalCaribbean, and it excludes sailings on Quantum of the Seas. The hotel industry is offering a wide variety of online postThanksgiving sales. Anthony Melchiorri, host of the Travel Channel show Hotel Impossible, says the holiday sales can be a win-win for hotels and consumers. Hotels push deals for periods when they have capacity, and consumers can save up to 65 percent. He added that more and more hotels seem to be joining in the promotion as the years go by. Check the websites But check websites for details, as every offer is different. Some deals went live on Thanksgiving or Black Friday; some are available all weekend; some begin at 12:01a.m. CyberMonday Some are for 24 hours, some last several days. Many have blackout dates for popular travel periods. Some hotel deals are straightforward rate offers, others are 10 percent off, some give triple credit-card points or dollaramount credits during a stay toward amenities or services. Some require coupon codes. Among the lodging companies offering some type of online deal are Hotels.com, Starwood hotels, BedandBreakfast.com, Pacifica Hotels, Loews Hotels, Preferred Hotel Group, Omni Hotels and Red Roof Inns.

Reverse mortgages are not for everyone DE AR BRUCE: I have a friend who will be 62 years old in June 2014. She is seriously considering a reverse mortgage. Are reverse mortgages a good idea? Personally, I dont trust anything the government has to offer. Janie, via email DE AR JANIE: First, there is nothing wrong with reverse mortgages. Whether or not they are a good thing for your friend is another matter altogether. Its important to understand what a reverse mortgage is. Simply put, it is a loan against the equity in the home that does not have to be paid until such time as the owner is no longer in the picture or stops living in the home. The fact that most are guaranteed by the government is not a problem from my prospective. You say your friend will be 62, which means she will get a relatively modest amount of money. Why? Because she could live in the house 20 or 30 more years. Generally speaking, I dont think a reverse mortgage is really smart for everyone. I dont think its wise to consider until a person is in her early to mid-70s. I would have to know more about your friend to be more helpful. She must be cash poor. If you want to give me a brief overview of the specifics how much she owes, income, etc. I am happy to comment further. See MONEY/ Page D2 See RACE/ Page D2 Check the websites

A new whiskey created in Kentucky features a blend of age and scarcity that spiked demand and its price. As a result, whiskey fans including celebrities and corporate chiefs are angling to snatch up limited stocks of Michters Celebration Sour Mash Whiskey for nearly $4,000 per bottle. Shots wont come cheap, either, fetching an expected $350 a pop. Limited-edition offerings, with heftier prices than typical stocks, have become commonplace as American whiskey makers dabble in new flavors to lure customers. But the latest introduction by Michters Distillery LLC breaks into a pricing stratosphere that could reverberate across the industry. This is kind of new territory, said industry observer F. Paul Pacult, editor of the newsletter Spirit Journal. Its going to start a whole rush of interest in very highend bourbons, American whiskeys and American spirits. This kind of throws the challenge out. The Michters product will reach shelves Monday in select liquor stores, restaurants, bars or hotels in such places as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Aspen, Colo., Chicago, Palm Beach, Fla., Houston and Boston. The company produced a scant 273 bottles of the blend of whiskeys, some aged up to 30 years, and all are spoken for, its top executive said. Weve been turning down orders, said Michters President Joseph J. Magliocco. DEAR BRUCE: My son is unable to pay back his student loans. He attended a community college last year.

MONEYContinued from Page D1 Let SCORE help you with How To Citrus County SCORE is currently planning business education programs to be offered in 2014. SCORE business classes focus on improving operations of existing businesses as well as supporting the new startups. In the past, SCORE offerings included the Small Business Institute (SBI), lasting 11 sessions, and the two-hour R U Ready classes. The R U Ready classes will continue during 2014; the schedule will soon be announced. R U Ready covers the initial steps to take in the early phase of starting a new business. The SBI will offer educational classes on specific business topics. The new series will be called the How To Conference and Seminar Series. The How To seminars When How To books entered the marketplace, anyone buying one could learn how to build a deck, paint a house, grow a garden and even learn how to lose weight. Experienced people, writers, commercial printers and publishers all contributed there expertise. Experience Matters demonstrated its inherent value. People read and learned and benefitted. As digital technology continued to grow and diversify, CDs provided visuals on how to do almost anything. DVDs followed and quickly improved on the learning process. Behind all of the efforts were experienced people. SCORE is all about Experience Matters What has made SCOREs educational offerings so popular has been what our business mentors bring to the classes. SCORE prides itself on the certified mentor members who bring the single most important element for business success: experience. When a client comes to SCORE for counseling, a mentor is assigned to the client. SCORE fits the client with one or more counselors who have specific experience in the area of business in which the client is interested. Typical business disciplines SCORE mentors have include: Marketing, Education, Sales, Advertising, accounting, engineering, information technology, nonprofit management and more. Our job is to counsel owners. SCORE clients job is to benefit from our experience. When you need surgery, would you seek out a doctor who just graduated, or one with 25 years of experience? SCORE calling for community input SCORE Citrus is calling for community input as to what business topics would serve the interests of small-business owners. We understand small-business people want to increase their bottom lines and expand their revenue-earning capacity. What we want you to do is tell us what you want. Help us help you! What will help you and your business? Obviously, we prefer serious inquires. Here is your opportunity to have a qualified person listen to your needs. Call, email, walk in and ask for a mentor with whom you can confer. The SCORE office is on the Citrus County campus of the College of Central Florida in Lecanto. Office hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday to Thursday. Call 352-2491236. Dr Frederick J Herzog, Ph.D. is the immediate past chairman of Citrus County SCORE. Email fherzog@tampabay.rr.com. Dr Frederick Herzog, PhDEXPERIENCE MATTERS reportedly among those tapped. Both Google and Yahoo, whose data center communications lines were also reportedly tapped, have committed to boosting encryption and online security. Although theres no indication Facebook was tapped, the social network is also upping its encryption systems. Yahoo has never given access to our data centers to the NSA or to any other government agency. Ever, wrote Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer in a Nov. 18 post on the companys Tumblr blog announcing plans to encrypt all of its services by early next year. There is nothing more important to us than protecting our users privacy. For those who want to take matters into their own hands, encryption software has been proliferating across the Internet since the Snowden revelations broke. Heml.is Swedish for secret is marketed as a secure messaging app for your phone. MailPile aims to combine a Gmaillike user friendly interface with a sometimes clunky technique known as public key encryption. Younited hopes to keep spies out of your cloud storage, and Pirate Browser aims to keep spies from seeing your search history. A host of other security-centered programs with names like Silent Circle, RedPhone, Threema, TextSecure, and Wickr all promise privacy. Many of the people behind these programs are well known for pushing the boundaries of privacy and security online. Heml.is is being developed by Peter Sunde, co-founder of notorious file sharing website The Pirate Bay. Finlands F-Secure, home of Internet security expert Mikko Hypponen, is behind Younited. Dreadlocked hacker hero Moxie Marlinspike is the brains behind RedPhone, while Phil Zimmerman, one of the biggest names in privacy, is trying to sell the world on Silent Circle. Even flamboyant file sharing kingpin Kim Dotcom is getting in on the secure messaging game with an encrypted email service. The quality of these new programs and services is uneven, and a few have run into trouble. Nadim Kobeissi, developed encrypted instant messaging service Cryptocat in 2011 as an alternative to services such as Facebook chat and Skype. The Montreal-based programmer received glowing press for Cryptocats ease of use, but he suffered embarrassment earlier this year when researchers discovered an error in the programs code, which may have exposed users communications. Kobeissi used the experience to argue that shiny new privacy apps need to be aggressively vetted before users can trust them. You need to be vigilant, he says. Were two years old and were just starting to reach the kind of maturity I would want. Heml.is also encountered difficulties and angered users when its creators said they wouldnt use open source or publicly auditable code. And Silent Circle abruptly dropped its encrypted email service in August, expressing concern that it could not keep the service safe from government intrusion. What we found is the encryption services range in quality, says George Kurtz, CEO of Irvine, Calif.-based CrowdStrike, a big data, security technology company. I feel safe using some built by people who know what they are doing but others are Johnny-come-latelies who use a lot of buzzwords but may not be all that useful. Even so, private services report thousands of new users, and nonprofit, free encryption services say they have also see sharp upticks in downloads. And for many users, encryption really isnt enough to avoid the U.S. governments prying eyes. Paris-based Bouygues Telecom told its data storage provider Pogoplug in San Francisco that it needs the data center moved out of the U.S. to get out from under the provisions of U.S. law. So this month, PogoPlug CEO Daniel Putterman is keeping Bouygues as a client by shipping a multi-million dollar data center, from cabinets to cables, from California to France. They want French law to apply, not U.S. law, says Putterman, who is also arranging a similar move for an Israeli client. Bouygues spokesman Alexandre Andre doesnt draw a direct connection with the Patriot Act, and says Bouygues arrangement with Pogoplug is driven by concerns over performance and privacy. Andre says Bouygues wants the data stored in France, but it was up to Pogoplug to decide whether this would be done on Bouygues own servers or Pogoplugs. There is a general worry in France over data security, and storing data in France permits us to reassure our clients, Andre says. The arrangement also helps improve the services performance, Andre says, another reason for the move. For Pogoplug, business is booming its garnered close to 1 million paid subscribers in its first year and Putterman says the company is anxious to accommodate concerned clients. And this month, Pogoplug launched a $49 software package called Safeplug that prevents third parties, from the NSA to Google, from learning about a users location or browsing habits. But many warn that encryption offers a false sense of security. RACEContinued from Page D1 ADVERTISING For information about how your business can advertise on this page please call 352-563-5592.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Average U.S. mortgage rates rose modestly this week, a move that makes homebuying a bit less affordable. Still, rates remain near historically low levels. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Wednesday that the average rate on the 30year loan increased to 4.29 percent from 4.22 percent last week. The average on the 15-year fixed ticked up to 3.3 percent from 3.27 percent. Rates have risen nearly a full percentage point since May after the Federal Reserve signaled it might slow its bond purchases by the end of the year. Rates peaked at nearly 4.6 percent in August. But the Fed held off in September and most analysts expect it wont move until next year. The increase in mortgage rates has contributed to a slowdown in home sales over the past two months. To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac surveys lenders across the country at the beginning of each week. The average doesnt include extra fees, known as points, which most borrowers must pay to get the lowest rates. One point equals 1 percent of the loan amount. The average fee for a 30year mortgage was unchanged at 0.7 point. The fee for a 15-year loan also was unchanged at 0.7 point.

Swenson and his partner, Gary Hath, had up to that point was eight. The order also came after business had struggled for most of the year. It was a struggle just to meet payroll, Swenson said. The order has been split into two parts, with the first 77 chairs expected to go out this week. The chairs are black with the front of the top rail of each chair stenciled with a patriotic image, such as the pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock in 1620, the Boston Tea Party of 1773 and Paul Reveres ride in 1775. Swenson said the images were part of the inventory when he and Hath bought the Hitchcock brand. There are hundreds of stencils, all made by Hitchcock employees, but the patriotic ones apparently werent used too often, he said. John Lek, the general manager and senior vice president of the tavern, said he and his partners were aware of the Hitchcock brand and contacted the business because they believed Hitchcock would make the authentic-looking New England-style chairs they wanted. They were on the spot in terms of meeting our needs from a service standpoint, Lek said. We received some sample chairs and they came out beautifully. Lek said the business representatives of the restaurant have not decided on a design for the remaining 75 chairs but he figures it will most likely be another patriotic theme with possibly the restaurants logo. Lek said he hopes the restaurant will open by Jan. 1. While Hitchcock Chair has grown from four to 14 employees in less than three years, Swenson said he has not needed to hire any additional workers for the restaurant project. About 40 percent of all work is outsourced to about a half dozen small long-time manufacturers around New England, making various components. Hitchcock in its prime did the same, he said. Annual revenue is nearly $1 million but so are expenditures so profits thus far are small. Hitchcock in its heyday in the 1970s and s was a $20-million-a-year business making 400 chairs per day. My partner and I have been very careful about spending money, Swenson said, adding that he and Hath are looking to buy some new equipment but are holding off for now. We have no debt so on paper were profitable. They are working with the state Department of Economic and Community Development about expanding at some point but are taking it slow, Swenson said. Much of the manufacturing and assembly is now done at Whiting Mills, a former factory building at the corner of Whiting Street and Holabird Avenue that now houses some 30 to 40 tenants who are primarily artists and craftsmen. But they would like a space where all of the manufacturing, storage and loading docks are on the same floor. It is our intention to stay in Northwest Connecticut, Swenson said, noting that its main retail store remains in the Riverton section of Barkhamsted with Still River Antiques. Officials from both Winsted and Barkhamsted are tickled that Hitchcock is rebounding. Its a wonderful success story, Winsted Economic Development Commission Chairman Richard Labich said. Any time you can attract a company in to our town that in two years has 14 employees, thats the kind of operation that were looking for ... Success attracts success. For Barkhamsted First Selectman Donald S. Stein, the return of Hitchcock is both a nod to the past and the future. Its a big part of our heritage, he said. Anything that creates jobs in town, Id love to see them expand and expand as much as the possibly can. Theyre good people and they make a good product. The more theyre able to do, the happier we all are and the happier they are. While Hitchcock, founded in 1818, benefitted greatly from the postWorld War II boom and the colonial revival, Swenson said the company is now trying to capitalize on the market that is willing to pay a little more for wellmade, high-quality American-made furniture. The average Hitchcock chair retails for $399. Hitchcock recently opened a new showroom in Wilton that it shares with another colonial-style furniture maker, Eldred Wheeler. Swenson said the original Hitchcock company had its own store in Wilton. Its a good match for us because the lines are similar but we dont directly compete, he said of Eldred Wheeler, which makes primarily bedroom furniture. Swenson said Hitchcocks future success lies largely in selling its products wholesale. He said he wants to continue to partner with small mom-andpop furniture stores, which would feature Hitchcock furniture on a section of their showroom floor. Were starting to trend back toward the positive, Swenson said. Weve got a lot more interest from other dealers that want to start buying wholesale so were looking to put out a sale representative that would cover New England.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013E13 E4SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Always there for you.

There are eightPlumeriaspecies in the genus, all from Central American. These tropicals need frost-free zones, such as 10-12 in South Florida, to be planted outside in the garden. They need full sun and dry soil. In Central Florida, they can be grown successfully as a greenhouse container plant. The minimum temperature Plumeriacan tolerate is 50 degrees. The plump, gray-green branches are sparsely arranged in a candelabra-like form, with a dome-shaped crown on mature specimens. Trunks have smooth gray bark.Plumeriatrees lose their leaves in winter. The thick, oblong leaves are lance-shaped to oval, 6 to 12 inches long. Flowers appear at the tips of bare branches in clusters called terminal thyrse. In sub-tropical climates, they start blooming in spring and continue until early winter. Tea service set likely quite old, but collector interest is low Dear John: Could you tell me anything about this childs tea service? It was my mothers, and I just came across it. I had misplaced it for many years. On the bottom, it has the word Germany in a semicircle, underneath what looks like the number 8. What you think? T.D., InternetDear T.D.: A nice sentimental Remember When discovery. The mark on the porcelain childs tea set indicates it was likely made during the early 20th century, making it close to if not more than 100 years old. Germany was in the forefront of the hard paste porcelain industry for a long time. The tea set was made by one of numerous factories producing childrens tea sets. Since it was not made by one of the famous companies of the era, it is considered generic. The missing lid and broken handle also has a downward effect on dollar value. Dear John: This dining room furniture set was given to me by my grandmother. I was just wondering if it has any significant value. M.S., InternetDear M.S.: Your reproduction Federal-style table and chairs appear to be commercial-grade quality. It would be in the used furniture category, better kept and used than sold. Potential dollar value is catch-ascatch-can. Dear John: I found this antique art piece in an attic and wanted to know if you knew if it had any potential value. See attached picture.

earthworms and other soil organisms. Mostly, these are friendly creatures, and nurturing them allows them to thwart unfriendly organisms, such as those causing some plant diseases. Besides disease prevention, when leaves are gobbled up by soil organisms, the nutrients in them are being released. Think of all those minerals taken in by a trees wide, spreading and deep roots. Just falling to the ground all around you, leaves are, pound for pound, about as rich in minerals as is manure. Of course, spreading leaves over the ground or just leaving them there in the first place is not an option for every site. I have spread leaves over a hayfield in which Ive planted chestnut trees. In coming years, these trees will shade out the grass; Im just helping the ground become the leaf-blanketed forest floor that it will eventually turn into. Beneath a row of dwarf apple trees, a leafy mulch keeps weeds from growing and stealing nutrients and water from my small trees. And no need to rake up all the leaves from even a manicured lawn: A mulching mower can grind them up to let enough grass peek through to thrive. If leaves form such a thick blanket that raking is necessary, dont bag them until youve spread all you can under your shrubs and trees, and over your flower beds. Save yourself effort and do something for the plants: At the very least, leave leaves where they drop. Still drowning in leaves? Hold off a bit longer before you pack them into trash bags. Consider packing the leaves into a dense pile for composting. Leaves make excellent, weed-free compost if you let them sit long enough. In a rush? Then mix in some manure, sprinklings of soybean meal or other materials rich in nitrogen. By next year at this time, most of the leaves you spread around or piled up this year will have either settled or evanesced into thin air, becoming mostly carbon dioxide and water. A significant but small portion will endure in the soil, having been transformed to humus. This humus provides long-term benefit to the soil, aerating sticky clays and helping sands sponge up and hold onto water for plant use. Roses, rhododendrons, lawns almost all plants, in fact appreciate any leaves left or applied around their feet. Of course, if everyone follows my advice, Ill no longer be importing neighbors leaves. KURTMOFFETT Republican-AmericanWINSTED, Conn. Hitchcock Chair may still not be the furniture juggernaut it once was but it is gradually making a comeback. Now run by the owners of Still River Antiques, which bought the Hitchcock name in 2010, the nearly 200-year-old Riverton-based company has received its largest order of chairs since going back into operation. Co-owner Rick Swenson said a group of investors contacted him just before Labor Day about a new restaurant they were building in Carlsbad, Calif. Its called the Green Dragon Tavern and Museum and its modeled after a historic Boston bar of the same name. The Boston Tea Party was planned at the original Green Dragon Tavern and Paul Revere was sent from there for his famous ride to Lexington. Historians call it the headquarters of the revolution. One of the investors, Bruce Bartlett, is originally from the Boston area. Swenson said Bartlett is an avid collector of Revolutionary War memorabilia and much of that collection will be on display in the museum. The investors ordered 152 Hitchcock chairs.

Many flower colors have been developed from several different species. All have fragrant, five-petaled flowers. Each petal overlaps the one to its left and tucks under the one to its right.Plumeria rubrais widely cultivated in the tropics and particularly popular in Hawaii. It originated in Central America from Mexico to Panama. Derived from a Latin word,rubrameans reddish. It can grow 20 to 25 feet tall, but remains much shorter in pots. Flowers range from pink to crimson-red on different plants. Flower diameter is about 2 to 3 inches. Petals are longer than their width, with a blunt point at the top. Red colors tend to be solid of one shade. There are many varieties bred for color and flower size, some as large as 4 inches in diameter.Plumeria alba,West Indian Jasmine, originated on Puerto Rico and Caribbean Islands. It grows 20 feet tall and has thick, lanceolate leaves 12 inches long. From Medieval Latin, alba means white. Flowers are white with yellow centers. They span 2.5 inches wide. Another species, White Frangipani, P obtusa,has white flowers with yellow centers. It grows 20 feet tall and remains evergreen in the tropics. It sheds old leaves after the new leaves are grown so always appears leafy and green. Petals are rounded and highly fragrant. One 60 acre, county-run botanical garden I visited on Oahu, Hawaii grows 36 varieties of different Plumeriatrees in Koko Crater, a dry, extinct, volcanic tuff cone. Some flowers are white with pink or yellow centers. Back edges of some are blushed pink, others pure yellow or peach. Propagation is by tip-cutting thumb-thick stems, stripping off the leaves and letting the butt dry thoroughly for two weeks before planting the stems in welldrained, sandy potting media. The stems contain a thick, milky substance do not ingest. Cloned stem cuttings are always the same color as the parent plant. In Hawaii many orchidarium and nursery outlets sell pestand disease-free inspected cuttings sealed in plastic bags to prevent dehydration and contamination. These are ready for shipping or carrying on the plane. A reader recently e-mailed to request redflowered plumeria cuttings because she could not find that color locally.

JANE WEBER/Special to the ChroniclePlumeria rubra is widely cultivated in the tropics and particularly popular in Hawaii. Rubra means reddish.

Peterson, editor in chief of HGTV Magazine. Red may seem like an oh, duh color trend, but there have been years when greens, blues and purples were more popular. This season, were seeing a ton of decorations in candy red. Ikea has a cheery collection of traditional Scandinavian ornaments including folk people, stars and goats. Land of Nods Rising Star tree topper features curly white embroidery on crimson felt. Cranberry red candlesticks from Pier 1 take mercury glass down a different road, while beaded reindeer and snowflakes bring glamour to red velvet and satin throw pillows. (www.ikea.com, www. landofnod.com, www.pier1 .com ) Grandin Roads Zoey chevron-patterned, rubyand-white-resin urn could be used to hold a live or artificial tree, or an assortment of greens. (www.grandinroad.com ) Winter white continues to appeal to holiday decorators; with or without touches of sparkle, its calming, elegant and chic. And dont disregard earthier colors think of bare birch branches hung with gold and silver stars; luxe bowls brimming with copper ornaments; chocolate brown mohair throws.Rethinking the traditionalSince folks are open to reimagining what Christmas can look like, well continue to see a looser interpretation of the traditional tree, says Catie Parrish, associate editor at Wayfair, the online home furnishings outlet. Were starting to see lots of paper and cardboard tabletop trees, and people are getting inventive, creating flat Christmas trees on walls, doors and even fridges. Theyre even decorating them with real ornaments and garlands. For someone who craves the charm of a real tree, even an evergreen branch in a mason jar can lend a hint of the holidays. Ikea has a pop-up cardboard tree that comes with ornaments. At Ellesstudio.blogspot.com, youll find simple instructions on how to turn wine corks, wooden sticks, colored paper and glitter into pretty little trees.ConserveParrish also suggests taking stock of what you already have around the house: Instead of buying every holiday necessity, shopping your home for existing solutions is one of the easiest ways to decorate. A throw blanket makes a cozy tree skirt. Use a scarf as a table runner. Use nature for holiday decoration think backyard branches, berries and pinecones, she says. Fill a vase or candle holder with jingle bells or peppermints. Wrap red, green or metallic ribbon around plain white pillar candles. Instead of candles, top candle stick holders with ornaments or snow globes. Faux fur or knitted throws and pillow covers; throw pillows with snow scenes or deer, antler and deer accessories; and glittery pillows evoke the festive spirit without overt reference. Consider scented candles, bowls of spiced goodies, seasonal music and warm, soft textures; bringing all five senses into play enhances the holiday mood. Some general themes this season:Beach holidayOne of my favorite holiday dcor themes is what were calling aquatic Christmas, says Parrish. Its an extension of the sea-life trend thats been hot in home dcor for a few seasons. Look for octopus and mermaid ornaments, especially in glittery silver and gold finishes. Coastal dwellers know that a beachy palette of blues, greens and whites sets the tone. A tree skirt block-printed with shells and starfish in soft blues and creams evokes a seaside Christmas. Gumps has a collection of painted, blown-glass ornaments that include jellyfish, hermit crabs, stingrays and leopard fish. (www.gumps.com) Find trees, wreaths and garlands crafted of shells and driftwood, as well as clear glass balls filled with soft white sand and tiny shells, at www.seaside inspired.com. If youve got a pile of seashells on the porch, check out Marthastewart.com for a clever way to glitter them up and hang them on the tree.Retro holidayVintage is going to be a popular holiday theme, especially when it comes to typography, says Parrish. Look for throwback fonts on everything from toss pillows to serving trays. Jonathan Adlers Peace pillow has that vibe. (www.jcp.com) And Homegoods has decorative hanging signs done in oldfashioned type with words like Believe. (www.homegoods.com)Holiday imaginationFab.coms Christmas tree offerings include kitschy yet clever cowboy boots, television sets, robots and soda pop bottles rendered in blown glass. Clear ornaments can be filled with whatever strikes your fancy Urban Outfitters has sets of four. (www.urban outfitters.com) And CB2 has fun little satellite, spaceship and Sputnik ornaments. (www. cb2.com) Critters both exotic and domestic abound this season. Land of Nod has felt dog ornaments, as well as rabbits, walrus and unicorns. Tree skirts can be made out of just about anything burlap, ribbons, blankets, even a real vintage skirt. Or instead of a skirt, consider a box painted to look like a gift. Ballard Designs has a resin faux bois basket. (www.ballarddesigns.com) Peterson suggests a tree collar: Its like a colorful little fence around the base of your tree, she says. Crate & Barrel has one made of braided palm fiber by Mexican artisans, in cream and red. (www.crateandbarrel.com) LEE REICH/Associated PressA gardener spreads leaves beneath a row of dwarf apple trees, where a leafy mulch keeps weeds from growing and stealing nutrients and water. LEEREICH Associated PressIf you had driven past my house in recent days, you might have thought you were watching a movie in reverse. There I was, opening trash bags, dumping out leaves and spreading them over the ground. These were bags left curbside for me by neighbors near and far. It does seem crazy, doesnt it, gathering up all these bags and dumping out all those leaves? But dried, dead leaves contain stored energy, the suns energy. Put them on or in the soil, as I have been doing, and they release their energy to support the growth and activity of fungi, CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 E11 E6SUNDAY, DECEMBER1, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE B ILL D ECKER 352-464-0647 S USAN M ULLEN 352-422-2133 V ICTORIA F RANKLIN 352-427-3777 000GRQZ Terms 6 Months or More Social Membership included with all Rentals Terra Vista & Brentwood Rentals!

ahead, urging his four companions to stay 10 meters apart: If you hear me yell Ow! run like hell. That means yellow jackets. Burns whacked away with a machete. The 20-minute walk passed uneventfully, though, apart from some vines that trip and branches that must be climbed over or ducked under. And soon, they were standing by their discovery. Right on the edge of one of the countless marshes in that area, it has four earth and oyster-shell walls, roughly rectangular, perhaps 6 feet high at its highest. In one corner, theres an opening. Could it have been a door, or is it just natural erosion? Inside the walls, the ground is low and muddy, and trees are growing up from the mud. In all, its about 115 by 80 feet. Sais got a tip from a hiker who told him about the strange find in the woods. After struggling through mud and thick vegetation, he saw it for himself. The find intrigues Sais and Burns, though they dont know what it is other than to say that its definitely man-made. They cant know until more research is done, and they say they wont dig without landowner permission. And they dont want to publicize exact locations, to prevent unscrupulous diggers from finding out. The Cowford Archaeological Research Society, its founders say, wants to do it right. Were not just a bunch of fly-by-night amateurs, Burns said. Burns is a registered professional archaeologist, with a masters degree in the field from Colorado State. Sais has worked for decades as a contract archaeologist, and he has a business selling tools of the trade. The site in the marshes could very well be something quite mundane. But they wonder: Could it be the earthworks of a fort ordered built by James Edward Oglethorpe, the British founder of Georgia, in preparation for his failed 1740 siege of the Spanish in St. Augustine? Theyve been looking for it a few hundred years, Sais said. We think weve found it. He can picture it: They could get 200 men in here, shoulder-to-shoulder, with flintlock rifles, if the Spanish attacked them. Archaeologists dream of such discoveries. And as Sais, a garrulous 60-yearold, likes to say: Everywhere you walk in Jacksonville, historys under your feet. At the LaVilla site, searchers have found perfectly intact glass bottles used for medicines. A Union soldiers uniform button. A fancy crystal handle and nice ceramic pieces that might have been used by officers. Recently, out came two telling finds: First, the casing for the bullet for a Spencer rifle. A short while later, up popped a metal rod with a circular handle. Members agreed: It was most likely used to clean the fuse hole of a cannon. In LaVilla, they took clues from an 1864 map of Jacksonville, which had the location of Ft. Hatch, just outside the city walls. They figured out where it might be today, asked permission from the private landowner, and dug a few holes, each carefully mapped and logged. Everything thats found at the LaVilla dig or the possible marsh site will be given, Sais said, to the landowners. No ones getting paid for this work. Not Sais, not Burns, not the eager amateurs who pitch in to dig. The Cowford Archaeological Research Society named after an early, descriptive name for Jacksonville began in April. Its a nonprofit group that has dreams of one day starting a museum and having schoolchildren and the disabled helping on their digs. Corporate sponsorship to defray some of the costs of digs would be nice, too. At the LaVilla site, Dave Gentkowski, retired from the Navy, brought his 12year-old home-schooled son, Lorenzo, for a field trip. They pitched in, digging and sifting and signing Cowford membership cards. Gentkowski grew up near the Manassas battlefields in Virginia, which sparked in him an interest in archaeology. He once found a trigger guard for a musket, and a neighbor found a U.S. Cavalry belt buckle. Lorenzo said he was happy to be there. I was hoping Id find a cannon, he said. Confederate gold, said his dad. That sense of discovery drives the searchers, who look past the humble parking lot and see a bustling Civil War fort. Its all there, they say, under their boots. Theres enough work for us to do for the next 10,000 years is another thing Sais likes to say. And he and his amateur volunteers are just getting started. MATTSOERGELThe Florida TimesUnionJACKSONVILLE Its a nothing-special grass parking lot in LaVilla, on the edge of downtown. But the members of a fledgling group called the Cowford Archaeological Research Society see it as something quite grand. To them, this nondescript patch of land is beginning to look like the site of a lost Union fort, built in 1864 just outside the city walls of old Jacksonville. Theyve dug, and theyve found intriguing items from that era, including what they say is a nicely preserved shell casing for a Spencer rifle, which was used by Union troops. Exciting stuff. But for members of the mostly amateur archaeological group, theres a mystery in the citys vast northern marshes that they think could be far older and even more important. But its going to take bit of a hike to get there. This is some serious jungle: Dean M. Sais and George Burns, founders of the Cowford group, handed out plastic leg coverings, to guard against snakebites. There was extra water.

A red mercury glass pillar stand candle holder from Pier1.com adds sparkle and shine even without lit candles. Red is once again a popular color this holiday season, after a few years of being on the outs.Associated Press KIMCOOK Associated PressFollowing the general trend in home dcor, holiday trim and accessories this year are an eclectic mix of traditional and non-traditional colors and styles. Remember when blue or pastel pink ornaments were the height of kitsch? Now theyre mainstream, elegant options. And while red and green are popular hues, they are not married to each other. Red might be paired with ivory, or amethyst; green may partner with copper, caramel or bright white. As for what goes on the tree or the mantel, well, thats the thing anything goes. Style watchers say were approaching the holidays with a more open mind. Households are more diverse, relaxed and less tied to old-school ways of celebrating.

ahead, urging his four companions to stay 10 meters apart: If you hear me yell Ow! run like hell. That means yellow jackets. Burns whacked away with a machete. The 20-minute walk passed uneventfully, though, apart from some vines that trip and branches that must be climbed over or ducked under. And soon, they were standing by their discovery. Right on the edge of one of the countless marshes in that area, it has four earth and oyster-shell walls, roughly rectangular, perhaps 6 feet high at its highest. In one corner, theres an opening. Could it have been a door, or is it just natural erosion? Inside the walls, the ground is low and muddy, and trees are growing up from the mud. In all, its about 115 by 80 feet. Sais got a tip from a hiker who told him about the strange find in the woods. After struggling through mud and thick vegetation, he saw it for himself. The find intrigues Sais and Burns, though they dont know what it is other than to say that its definitely man-made. They cant know until more research is done, and they say they wont dig without landowner permission. And they dont want to publicize exact locations, to prevent unscrupulous diggers from finding out. The Cowford Archaeological Research Society, its founders say, wants to do it right. Were not just a bunch of fly-by-night amateurs, Burns said. Burns is a registered professional archaeologist, with a masters degree in the field from Colorado State. Sais has worked for decades as a contract archaeologist, and he has a business selling tools of the trade. The site in the marshes could very well be something quite mundane. But they wonder: Could it be the earthworks of a fort ordered built by James Edward Oglethorpe, the British founder of Georgia, in preparation for his failed 1740 siege of the Spanish in St. Augustine? Theyve been looking for it a few hundred years, Sais said. We think weve found it. He can picture it: They could get 200 men in here, shoulder-to-shoulder, with flintlock rifles, if the Spanish attacked them. Archaeologists dream of such discoveries. And as Sais, a garrulous 60-yearold, likes to say: Everywhere you walk in Jacksonville, historys under your feet. At the LaVilla site, searchers have found perfectly intact glass bottles used for medicines. A Union soldiers uniform button. A fancy crystal handle and nice ceramic pieces that might have been used by officers. Recently, out came two telling finds: First, the casing for the bullet for a Spencer rifle. A short while later, up popped a metal rod with a circular handle. Members agreed: It was most likely used to clean the fuse hole of a cannon. In LaVilla, they took clues from an 1864 map of Jacksonville, which had the location of Ft. Hatch, just outside the city walls. They figured out where it might be today, asked permission from the private landowner, and dug a few holes, each carefully mapped and logged. Everything thats found at the LaVilla dig or the possible marsh site will be given, Sais said, to the landowners. No ones getting paid for this work. Not Sais, not Burns, not the eager amateurs who pitch in to dig. The Cowford Archaeological Research Society named after an early, descriptive name for Jacksonville began in April. Its a nonprofit group that has dreams of one day starting a museum and having schoolchildren and the disabled helping on their digs. Corporate sponsorship to defray some of the costs of digs would be nice, too. At the LaVilla site, Dave Gentkowski, retired from the Navy, brought his 12year-old home-schooled son, Lorenzo, for a field trip. They pitched in, digging and sifting and signing Cowford membership cards. Gentkowski grew up near the Manassas battlefields in Virginia, which sparked in him an interest in archaeology. He once found a trigger guard for a musket, and a neighbor found a U.S. Cavalry belt buckle. Lorenzo said he was happy to be there. I was hoping Id find a cannon, he said. Confederate gold, said his dad. That sense of discovery drives the searchers, who look past the humble parking lot and see a bustling Civil War fort. Its all there, they say, under their boots. Theres enough work for us to do for the next 10,000 years is another thing Sais likes to say. And he and his amateur volunteers are just getting started. MATTSOERGELThe Florida TimesUnionJACKSONVILLE Its a nothing-special grass parking lot in LaVilla, on the edge of downtown. But the members of a fledgling group called the Cowford Archaeological Research Society see it as something quite grand. To them, this nondescript patch of land is beginning to look like the site of a lost Union fort, built in 1864 just outside the city walls of old Jacksonville. Theyve dug, and theyve found intriguing items from that era, including what they say is a nicely preserved shell casing for a Spencer rifle, which was used by Union troops. Exciting stuff. But for members of the mostly amateur archaeological group, theres a mystery in the citys vast northern marshes that they think could be far older and even more important. But its going to take bit of a hike to get there. This is some serious jungle: Dean M. Sais and George Burns, founders of the Cowford group, handed out plastic leg coverings, to guard against snakebites. There was extra water.

L.L., InternetDear L.L.: The decorative wall mounted piece has a circus look to it. It appears to be made of metal. You have not included the full dimensions or the material. The figural pieces on the lower section have a storybook theme feeling to them. In order to help you, I need several good clear photos, the full dimensions and any marks or labels. Dear John: My grandson recently bought this in a shop in Korea. Not knowing the language of the shop clerk, he is guessing that it is a fish scaler. We are interested in any information you might have on this object. J. & J.K., InternetDear J. & J.K.: The photograph is not very clear. All I can say about the item is there is no specific collector interest. I have no idea if the item is a Korean fish scaler. If you like, send some better photographs and perhaps a reader will recognize it. John Sikorski has been a professional in the antiques business for 30 years.

Peterson, editor in chief of HGTV Magazine. Red may seem like an oh, duh color trend, but there have been years when greens, blues and purples were more popular. This season, were seeing a ton of decorations in candy red. Ikea has a cheery collection of traditional Scandinavian ornaments including folk people, stars and goats. Land of Nods Rising Star tree topper features curly white embroidery on crimson felt. Cranberry red candlesticks from Pier 1 take mercury glass down a different road, while beaded reindeer and snowflakes bring glamour to red velvet and satin throw pillows. (www.ikea.com, www. landofnod.com, www.pier1 .com ) Grandin Roads Zoey chevron-patterned, rubyand-white-resin urn could be used to hold a live or artificial tree, or an assortment of greens. (www.grandinroad.com ) Winter white continues to appeal to holiday decorators; with or without touches of sparkle, its calming, elegant and chic. And dont disregard earthier colors think of bare birch branches hung with gold and silver stars; luxe bowls brimming with copper ornaments; chocolate brown mohair throws.Rethinking the traditionalSince folks are open to reimagining what Christmas can look like, well continue to see a looser interpretation of the traditional tree, says Catie Parrish, associate editor at Wayfair, the online home furnishings outlet. Were starting to see lots of paper and cardboard tabletop trees, and people are getting inventive, creating flat Christmas trees on walls, doors and even fridges. Theyre even decorating them with real ornaments and garlands. For someone who craves the charm of a real tree, even an evergreen branch in a mason jar can lend a hint of the holidays. Ikea has a pop-up cardboard tree that comes with ornaments. At Ellesstudio.blogspot.com, youll find simple instructions on how to turn wine corks, wooden sticks, colored paper and glitter into pretty little trees.ConserveParrish also suggests taking stock of what you already have around the house: Instead of buying every holiday necessity, shopping your home for existing solutions is one of the easiest ways to decorate. A throw blanket makes a cozy tree skirt. Use a scarf as a table runner. Use nature for holiday decoration think backyard branches, berries and pinecones, she says. Fill a vase or candle holder with jingle bells or peppermints. Wrap red, green or metallic ribbon around plain white pillar candles. Instead of candles, top candle stick holders with ornaments or snow globes. Faux fur or knitted throws and pillow covers; throw pillows with snow scenes or deer, antler and deer accessories; and glittery pillows evoke the festive spirit without overt reference. Consider scented candles, bowls of spiced goodies, seasonal music and warm, soft textures; bringing all five senses into play enhances the holiday mood. Some general themes this season:Beach holidayOne of my favorite holiday dcor themes is what were calling aquatic Christmas, says Parrish. Its an extension of the sea-life trend thats been ho
