County officials and county landowners who could be affected have already been contacted regarding surveying for possible right of way. This month, residents will have opportunities to get more information on the proposed 24-inch diameter Citrus County pipeline and the Sabal Trail project, which will affect about a dozen Florida counties. Last July, Spectra Energy announced that Sabal Trail Transmission, a joint venture of Spectra and NextEra Energy Inc., had been awarded a 465-mile interstate natural gas pipeline project by Florida Power & Light Company (FPL). Spectra is a Duke Energy spinoff, becoming its own entity in 2007. The concept was approved by the Florida Public Service Commission in October. Sabal Trail will construct the morethan-1-billion-cubic-feet-per-day, 36-inch diameter pipeline originating in Alabama, running through Georgia and ending in Osceola County southeast of Orlando. The pipeline to deliver gas into Citrus County would connect with Sabal Trail in Marion County, according to Spectra Coach says family first INFORMATION SESSIONSPublic meetings on the proposed Sabal Trail pipeline will be held from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the following dates and locations: Monday, Dec. 9 Williston Elementary, 801 S.

Citrus head football coach resigns to accept same position at Seven Rivers Health care site faces crucial test Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obamas new and improved health care website faces yet another test in just a couple of weeks, its biggest yet. If HealthCare.gov becomes overwhelmed by an expected year-end crunch, many Americans will be left facing a break in their insurance coverage. Until now, the main damage from the websites technology woes has been to Obamas poll ratings. But if it chokes again, it will be everyday people feeling the consequences. Some of those at risk are among the more than 4 million consumers whose individual policies have been canceled because the coverage didnt comply with requirements of the new health care law. A smaller number, several hundred thousand, are in federal and state programs for people whose health problems already were a barrier to getting private insurance before the overhaul. The chances are almost 100 percent that someone who would like to continue coverage next year and intends to secure A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerFLORAL CITY The drive-up, blue mail-collection receptacle is gone ripped from the concrete slab it stood on by a suspected thief or thieves. The sheriffs office and U.S. Postal inspectors are trying to figure out what happened. We are following all investigative leads in the matter, said U.S. Postal Service Inspector Doug Smith of the Tampa office. This is a very rare occurrence because those boxes are not easy to remove, but we will follow all leads to solve it, Smith added. He said those who placed mail containing either checks or credit card information in that receptacle Sunday going into Monday morning should contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service office in Tampa and should also contact their banks and credit card offices to check for possible fraud. According to Citrus County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Heather Yates, the JON-MICHAELSORACCHI Staff writerAs much as football is an enormous part of his life, Rayburn Greene made a surprising decision based on something more important: his family. Greene, the head football coach and a physical education teacher at Citrus High School, announced Monday afternoon that he will be leaving the Hurricanes at the end of the school year to assume the same roles at Seven Rivers Christian School. According to both Greene and Citrus High School athletic director Larry Bishop, Greene will stay on as a teacher through the end of his contract in May. The choice to rejoin the Warriors is coming full circle for Greene, who first came to Citrus County in February 2009 after being recruited by Seven Rivers to start the schools varsity football program from scratch. Greene acknowledged the move from the Florida High School Athletic Associations (FHSAA) Class 6A down to Class 1A would be baffling to some people, but he didnt make the move solely based on a game. A mail-collection box was stolen from the front of the U.S. Post Office in Floral City.A.B.

The program will cover the time span from July1, 2014, to June30, 2019, to includepreliminary engineering, right-of-way acquisitionconstruction, and public transportation projects for Citrus County. It allocated $18.4 million during the time framefor voluntary right-of-way acquisition for Suncoast Parkway2. The public hearing for District7 will be conducted as a webinar,a live presentation delivered over the Internet,from 1:30 to 3:30p.m. Monday, Dec.16.

Interested residents who do not have Internet access can find access set up for them at the Inverness Government Center, 212 W. Main St., Inverness. The draft program, available online in the agenda packet, identifies the roads to get upgrades, what kind of work will be done, how much money will be budgeted, the source of the funding and the year the funding is budgeted. For example, the program has allocated $33.2million in 2014-15 for projects on County Road 491 (North Lecanto Highway) from Laurel Street south of State Road 44 to West Horace Allen Street, south of County Road 486. Projects will include adding lanes and reconstruction for new traffic signals and turn lanes. Funding will come from County Incentive Grant Program, local funds and the Trans Regional Incentive Program. Other roads, such as County Road 488 (West Dunnellon Road), County Road 495 (North Citrus Avenue), Forest Ridge Boulevard and Fort Island Trail, to name a few, are scheduled for resurfacing. A bridge replacement is planned for Halls River Road. Both county airports have been allocated many upgrades. The county bus service also receives annual funding in this program. Other subjects for consideration will include the merger between the TPO and Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and regional multi-use trails priorities. The Hernando MPO board is scheduled to adopt the updated draft of the apportionment plan of nine members on the new board at its Dec.17 meeting. Meeting schedules are being coordinatedwith the government jurisdictions of Hernando County, Brooksville, Citrus County, CrystalRiver and Inverness. The next step is for the boards and councils to concurwith the adoption of the apportionment plan and to approve proposals of support. The Regional Multi-Use TrailsCommittee recommended increasing the number of regional trail priorities to 10.It also recommended adding the Suncoast2 trailas priority No.7 for its entire length from the existing trailhead at U.S. 98 to itsnorthern terminus at U.S. 19 near Red Level. Theserecommendations will be taken to a public hearing during the ChairsCoordinating Committee (CCC) board meeting on Dec.13 in PinellasCounty.

State BRIEF From wire reports MAILContinued from Page A1 postmaster noticed the box was missing Monday morning. Deputies arrived on the scene a little after 10 a.m., Yates said. She said an investigator checked the area, thinking maybe it was accidentally knocked down and dragged by a motorist, but soon came to the conclusion that the box was not in the vicinity of the post office it is gone. Yates said detectives are working with area businesses, which may yield surveillance video of the incident. She said the investigation is in its early stages, but anyone with information about the theft of the box can anonymously call Citrus County Crime Stoppers at 888-ANY-TIPS (2698477). Smith would not say if officials have recovered any surveillance footage of the crime. Mail theft is a federal crime therefore the U.S. Postal Inspection Service also is investigating the case. Its Tampa office number is 877-8762455.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.
MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerAn Inverness man was jailed early Monday morning on charges he pummeled a man while watching TV with some friends Christopher Lynn Watts, 26, 5566 S. Luray Terrace, told deputies that he beat the man because he was disrespectful in Watts house. According to his arrest report, this is what happened: Deputies responded to a 2a.m. physical disturbance at Watts home. Deputies spoke to witnesses who said Watts was drunk and trying to pick a fight while watching TV. They said Watts approached the victim, who was sitting on the couch, and punched him the face. He pushed away someone who tried to intervene, and continued punching the victim until the man went limp, witnesses said. The couch was saturated in blood and there was blood on the walls and floors, the report states. Deputies found the victim in another room, barely conscious. The mans face was covered in blood and he had severe facial injuries, deep gashes and cuts. He was transported by ambulance to Citrus Memorial hospital. Deputies arrested Watts; however, the report states Watts had to be subdued by deputies after he started to struggle as they walked him to the patrol car. While at the jail, Watts purposely smashed his head on the bullet-proof glass guarding the control center. Deputies and Correction Corporation of American guards subdued him to the floor to prevent him from kicking jail guards, the report states. Deputies transported Watts to Citrus Memorial emergency room to have him medically cleared for jail incarceration. While there, Watts reportedly said he should have hit the man harder. The defendant told me he did not get him as good as he wanted to, the deputy wrote in his report. Watts was charged with aggravated battery and held on $5,000 bond.

SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVERThe site of the citys first African-American school is gradually being transformed into an allencompassing community gathering place. Last week, workers finished adding the roof to the 8,000square-foot George Washington Carver Community Center at Northeast Third Avenue. Next, said volunteer project director Harold Walker, is the addition doors and windows. That would probably cost about $10,000, Walker said. And we are going to begin looking at an air-conditioning system, which is not cheap, he added. Walker said the effort to make the center a reality is being driven by volunteer power and donations. Project officials have been raising funds through family pledges, banquets, dances and bake sales. The project kicked into high gear this year after volunteers began framing the building a few months ago. The sides were soon added and now the roof. Walker said volunteers from Duke Energy and the community can be found at the site every Saturday. Our goal is to complete it by February 2015 during Black History Month, Walker said. He estimates the building will cost somewhere near $280,000 by the time it is completed. In 2004, then-U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite helped the center obtain a $125,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In 2009, the Crystal River City Council waived the $10,000 building permit fees and the county waived more than $90,000 in impact fees because the site once had a school on it. However, over the years the project had been stalled for unspecified reasons until Walker stepped in about two years ago. Walker said he often wondered about the vacant piece of land, so he contacted the projects board of directors, which tapped him as the volunteer project director. Walker said he sought the help of co-workers at Duke and recruited others from the community to get the wheels turning. When its done, one of the things we would like to put in there is an after-school learning center where kids in elementary and middle school can go to get help with their school work. The center will be very good for Crystal River when it is done, he said. For more information or to help, call Walker at 352-464-0516.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

According to the report, crews attacked the blaze, bringing it under control a short time later. Crystal River Fire Department also assisted in fighting the fire. According to the report, 100percent of the contents of the home were declared a loss. The state fire marshals office is investigating the cause of the fire. Cape Canaveral Hubble Telescope looks at comet fateNASA said Monday that the Hubble Space Telescope is the best bet for figuring out whether Comet ISON disintegrated during its brush with the sun last week. A pair of solar observatories saw something emerge from around the sun following ISONs close approach on Thanksgiving Day. But scientists dont know whether the spot of light was merely the comets shattered remains or whats left of its icy nucleus. Either way, by now, they say it may be just dust. Over the coming week or two, scientists will keep a lookout for any brightening, which could indicate what, if anything is left. Hubble should put the matter to rest in mid-December. From staff and wire reports Associated PressTAMPA The city of Tampa is considering big changes in how drinks are poured at bars, restaurants and nightclubs. A draft ordinance up for consideration by the city council would roll back bar closing times from 3 a.m. to midnight,The Tampa Bay Timesreported. Bars, nightclubs and other venues would be able to apply for an extended hours business permit to stay open later. Businesses such as convenience stores that sell alcohol for carryout would not be subject to the early closure. Bars, restaurants and nightclubs with special use permits, a form of wetzoning in which the city council sets operating hours, would also be exempt. The city is also considering issuing new business permits to clubs with state licenses to serve drinks. The proposed rules will be discussed at a city council meeting on Thursday. They come two years after shootings at two Ybor City-area clubs left one man dead and six wounded. According to the ordinance, an extendedhours permit would be a privilege, not a right, and would have to be renewed every year. The city could suspend or revoke a permit if the establishment lets customers drink or stays open after 3 a.m.; had any two violations of certain laws like possession of felony controlled substances within a 12month period; or had four cases of criminal possession of marijuana within six months. City council member Yvonne Yolie Capin said she recognized how economically important bars and restaurants are, and that the idea is to achieve a level of comfort through regulations that are very specific and not subjective. That's very, very important, Capin said. STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Man charged in sex abuse of toddler A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerA 29-year-old Homosassa man is facing charges of physical and sexual abuse of a 23month-old girl. Travis Reid Malcom, of South Gross Avenue, was arrested Monday and charged with aggravated child abuse and sexual battery or injuring the sexual organs of a person less than 12 years old. His bond is $20,000. According to Malcoms arrest affidavit, he was watching three children, ages 3, 23 months and 8 months, while the parents went to pick up a pizza, leaving the house for about 30 minutes. The father said hed known Malcom for 15 years and that Malcom had baby sat in the past. When the parent returned, they found the residence was dark, then reportedly saw Malcom on his knees near a recliner in the living room. The parents said Malcom jumped to his feet upon seeing them. The parents also observed that Malcoms pants zipper was down. He reportedly told the parents that the 23-monthold had a diaper rash and was in her room crying. He then fled the residence through a back door. When the parents checked on the baby, they reportedly noticed the child had a small cut inside her vagina. They also noticed the girl had a bump on her forehead. Investigators of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office collected evidence and sent all three children to be examined. The medical exam found abrasions to the 23-month-olds sexual organs, which were consistent with sexual abuse, an abrasion to her forehead, and red bruises on her upper lip. The 3-year-old told investigators he saw Malcom slap the baby. The examination of the other two children showed no injuries or abuse. Malcom was later arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. He reportedly refused to talk to investigators.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Ownership of the artwork is at issue in a trial between ONeal and the University of Texas at Austin, which is seeking the portrait for its museum. ONeal began testifying in a trial on Monday morning. The Oscar-nominated actor said the Warhol portrait he removed belongs to him and was a gift from the artist. The university contends that Fawcett left the portrait to her alma mater. Warhol created two portraits of the Charlies Angels star in 1980. One version was given to the university, which is suing ONeal to gain possession of its twin.French artist wins Turner PrizeLONDON French artist Laure Prouvost has won this years Turner Prize, the prestigious British award for contemporary art. The 35-year-old filmmaker and installation artist won with a tea party-themed video installation. She beat three other finalists, including popular humorist David Shrigley, British-German artist Tino Sehgal and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, a Londoner of Ghanaian descent. The $40,000 award, given annually to a British or Britainbased artist under 50, often sparks lively debate about the value of modern art. Previous winners of the prize, named for 19th-century landscape painter J.M.W. Turner include media favorites such as transvestite potter Grayson Perry shark pickler Damien Hirst and dungdaubing painter Chris Ofili .Insane Clown Posse festival to moveST. LOUIS Organizers of an outdoor festival headlined by the rap-metal group Insane Clown Posse are finding new digs for the event after six years of staging it in southern Illinois, and the sheriff couldnt be happier. The five-day concert, which each year has drawn tens of thousands of people, also has developed a reputation for unruliness marked by drug overdoses, fights, arrests and the deaths of some Juggalos, by which Insane Clown Posse fans are known. In 2010, fans pelted reality TV actress Tila Tequila with stones, bottles and feces, and authorities said that event also involved one man stabbing another. One attendee drowned the following year while trying to swim in the Ohio River. And this year, a 24year-old fan, Cory Collins of Harrisburg, Ill., was found dead on the festivals grounds, and dozens of attendees were arrested on drug-related and disorderly conduct charges. The yearly gathering has been a recurring headache for Sheriff Jerry Fricker given the overtime his department has been forced to shell out for deputies to help monitor and control the crowds.Bruce Lees yellow jumpsuit on auctionHONG KONG Bruce Lee fans who covet the original yellow jumpsuit that the martial arts legend wore onscreen will get a chance to bid for it at a Hong Kong auction this week. Its part of a collection of 14 items going on the block on Thursday. Lee wore the yellow suit, with black stripes down the sides, in Game of Death. Quentin Tarantino paid homage to Lees jumpsuit by dressing Uma Thurman in one for his Kill Bill movies. From wire reports Associated PressThe water-stained label of the gray wool suit Gene Kelly wore in the movie Singin in the Rain is displayed Monday at Heritage Auctions in Dallas. The once rain-soaked suit is going up for auction after being kept in a closet by a memorabilia collector for more than four decades.

(One in which your choice of physicians/facilities is now limited) UNITED HEALTHCARE DROPPING PHYSICIANS FROM THEIR MEDICARE NETWORK PLANS Well, I think a lot of people with an outside perspective, wouldnt think that (was a good move) to go from a 6A to a 1A, Greene said. But certainly for me and my family, its a step up. Bishop expressed complete shock over Greenes sudden departure. I didnt have any idea at all, Bishop said. We totally understand that this was a decision he made based on his family. We feel like we have a strong tradition here at Citrus High School, Bishop continued. We think its going to be an attractive position. Greene, who has been a member of Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church since his arrival in the county, said it was a hard decision to make but one that was right for his wife Maryellen and their three young daughters. In four years at Citrus, Greene turned in a 24-19 record and helped engineer a turnaround from his first season of 2-8 to a 9-1 regular season in 2013 which included the Hurricanes first playoff berth in seven years. During the 2009 season, the Warriors went 2-5 overall in their one and only season under Greene. Seven Rivers Christian School headmaster Dana James said he and Greene had become good friends over the last four years through the church, which left the door open for a potential return. I told him after (he) finished up his season, well talk, James said. Heres a guy we had originally wanted to start the program and I know there were a lot of people devastated when Ray left. Greene did express excitement over the Warriors commitment to its football program and brand new facilities that are on track to open in 2015. Still, he said having to tell his players he was leaving was one of the hardest aspects of making the move. He is confident, though, that the progress made at Citrus will not end with him. Citrus High School is going to bring in a great football coach and staff, Greene said. Theyve been playing football here since 1926. Its not going to stop because one person leaves.Jon-Michael Soracchi is the Chronicle sports editor. He can be reached at 352-564-2928 or emailed at jmsoracchi @chronicleonline.com.

As proposed, Sabal Trail will pass through Levy, Marion and Sumter counties. It will run just east of Citrus and was originally not expected to impact the county. An above-ground compressor station is planned for Dunnellon. Initial cost estimates are in the range of $3 billion with the subsequent creation of construction jobs and ongoing tax revenues. To address public concerns, a series of public meetings are being held along the Sabal Trail corridor and one in Citrus Springs, which will include the connector. These will have a very open-house format, Grover said. Subjectmatter experts; right of way, survey, construction, environmental considerations, will be on hand. It will be informal, people can ask questions, she said. We just want to provide more information about the project. WWALS, a coalition for South Georgia/North Florida watershed conservation of the Willacoochee, Withlacoochee, Alapaha, and Little River systems has come out against Sabal Trail. It has filed with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) as an intervener opposing the project. Among its concerns, the group cites impacts on the Withlacoochee River, wetlands and recharge zones for the Floridan Aquifer. According to documents filed with FERC, Sabal Trail intends to submit a first draft of all Environmental Resource Reports by June 2014.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com. PIPELINEContinued from Page A1 Next house speaker wants statewide water planning The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE As the Senate pursues an ambitious $220 million plan to redirect water and reduce pollutants in South Florida, the next House speaker wants lawmakers to consider a broader approach to the vast water problems confronting the entire state. Rep. Steve Crisafulli, R-Merritt Island, wants lawmakers to factor in water issues faced by the agriculture industry and drinking-water sources, as well as problems facing Floridas freshwater springs, the Apalachicola River region in Floridas Panhandle and the northern Indian River Lagoon, as they prepare to allocate money for water-resource projects in next years budget. The water issues need to be approached in a comprehensive fashion, Crisafulli said Monday. Its important we dont get too laser-focused on one region of the state, but look at it from the standpoint of the overall needs of the state. The directive from Crisafulli, who is in line to become House speaker in November 2014, sets up expected political horse-trading over funding for water issues between the House and Senate at a time when the Legislature has the prospects of a budget surplus entering the session. The Senate plan was crafted by Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, who chairs the budgetwriting Appropriations Committee. Negrons plan was initially conceived with a focus on improving water quality in the St. Lucie estuary, which during the summer was inundated with nutrient-heavy waters released from nearby Lake Okeechobee under the direction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. As the plan advanced out of Negrons Select Committee on Indian River Lagoon and Lake Okeechobee Basin, it included proposals by Gov. Rick Scott to increase the flow of water to the south, and by Senate Majority Leader Lizbeth Benacquisto, R-Fort Myers, to assist the Caloosahatchee Estuary on the west side of the state. Its exciting to see state leaders competing over who will do the most for the environment, said Eric Draper, executive director of Audubon of Florida. This is something we havent seen in a long time. Draper, who has complimented Negron for being able to quickly put together a plan, agreed Monday with most of the general approach pitched by Crisafulli. Negron said he doesnt believe a proposed statewide approach will impact the Lake Okeechobee and Everglades improvement plan. The more focus we have on water policies the better, Negron said. We can do more than one thing at one time.

Interestrates Stocks decline Thanksgiving sales disappointing Associated PressNEW YORK The final month of a stellar year for stocks began with a thud. All three major indexes closed lower Monday, the first day of trading in December. Investors sold shares on signs that American shoppers that seemingly inexhaustible fuel of global economic growth may hold tight to their cash this holiday season. Shoppers turned out in record numbers over the four-day Thanksgiving weekend, but plunked down less cash than they did last year. It was the first decline in Thanksgiving weekend spending since a retail trade group began tracking it in 2006. Investors reacted by selling all types of retailer stocks, from department stores to specialty chains. J.C. Penney, Macys and Target fell about 2percent each. Urban Outfitters dropped nearly 4percent. This holiday season is not going to be a gangbuster, said Lindsey Piegza, chief economist of Sterne Agee. Retailers are bracing for declining activity from now to the beginning of the year. One big exception to the retailer doldrums was Ebay, which rose 1.6percent thanks to signs of strong sales from its online auctions. The Dow Jones industrial average has surged 22percent this year and, if history holds, will add to that gain this month. The Dow has risen in December in three out of every four years going back to 1950, according to the Stock Traders Almanac. The average gain: 1.7 percent. On Monday, the Dow fell 77.64 points, or 0.5percent, to 16,008.77. The Standard & Poors 500 index dropped 4.91 points, or 0.3percent, to 1,800.90. The Nasdaq composite fell 14.63 points, or 0.4percent, to 4,045.26. The government reported that developers boosted construction spending in October at the fastest pace in more than four years. A separate survey showed that manufacturing activity rose at its fastest pace in 21/2 years. Stocks have soared as the economy maintains a slow but steady recovery and companies continue to increase earnings. Demand for stocks also has been bolstered by Federal Reserve purchases of $85 billion of bonds each month. The goal is to hold down interest rates, make bonds less attractive than stocks, and stimulate the economy. 000GS8Z DEATHSContinued from Page A6 Mary Simonetti SO YOU KNOW Additional days of publication or reprints due to errors in submitted material are charged at the same rates.

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2013 Call Christmas by its nameIt is that time of year again. It is called CHRISTMAS! People are all caught up in Black Friday and the gifts instead of what Christmas really means. I get real upset when people say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas. I will not buy anything that says Happy Holidays. Only if it says Merry Christmas will I buy it. It was always Merry Christmas when I was growing up and it will always be Merry Christmas to me. After all, the real meaning of Christmas is the birth of Christ. Remember him? He is the one who created you, me and the Earth that we are destroying. So lets not focus on the gifts and parties and reflect on what the meaning of Christmas is really about. When I was in the store last year, I bought some Christmas decorations and went to check out, the cashier wished me Happy Holidays. I just walked out and left the decorations on the counter. I told her how I was offended. Merry Christmas to all! Stop taking God out of everything. Anna DeRose LecantoFundraising for Haiyan victimsAs the full scope of the destruction wrought upon the Philippines by typhoon Haiyan comes to light, the world has also come to see the best of the Filipino people. In this time of destruction and despair, the Filipino people have shown themselves to be a resilient and resourceful community. I cant help but to be proud to be Filipino in the aftermath of Haiyan. Weathering what was determined to be the strongest storm to make landfall in recorded history has proven to the world that we are a community that will stand strong in the face of adversity. Writing on behalf of those affected by Haiyan, we thank you for your kind support, we thank you for all the prayers and for coming together for a good cause. Currently, we have been able to raise $5,610 to help those affected. This money is destined towards organizations on the front lines of the disaster area one spearheaded by local physicians in Cebu City and local organizations from Kanangga and Tanauan Leyte. They are operating to aid storm victims from Tacloban, Kanangga and Tanauan Leyte, which are some of the hardest hit areas, by providing food, water, prophylactic antibiotics, vaccines, tents, mosquito nets, blankets and other essential supplies. These efforts will make a substantial difference in the lives of those affected. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you again for your kind support.Michelle L. Roflo Crystal River In 2011, tens of thousands of government employees and others, enraged by Gov. Scott Walkers determination to break the ruinously expensive and paralyzing grip that government workers unions had on Wisconsin, took over the capitol building in Madison. With chanting, screaming and singing supplemented by bullhorns, bagpipes and drum circles, their cacophony shook the building that the squalor of their occupation made malodorous. They spat on Republican legislators and urinated on Walkers office door. They shouted, This is what democracy looks like! When they and Democratic legislators failed to prevent passage of Act 10, they tried to defeat with a scurrilous smear campaign that backfired an elected state Supreme Court justice. They hoped that changing the courts composition would get Walkers reforms overturned. When this failed, they tried to capture the state Senate by recalling six Republican senators. When this failed, they tried to recall Walker. On the night that failed he won with a larger margin than he had received when elected 19 months earlier he resisted the temptation to proclaim, This is what democracy looks like! Walker recounts these events in Unintimidated: A Governors Story and a Nations Challenge. Most books by incumbent politicians are not worth the paper they never should have been written on. If, however, enough voters read Walkers nonfiction thriller, it will make him a perhaps the leading candidate for his partys 2016 presidential nomination. Act 10 required government workers to contribute 5.8 percent of their salaries to their pensions (hitherto, most paid nothing) and to pay 12.8 percent of their health care premiums (up from 6 percent but still just half of what the average federal worker pays). Both percentages are well below the private-sector average. By limiting collective bargaining to base wages, Act 10 freed school districts to hire and fire teachers based on merit, and to save many millions of dollars by buying teachers health insurance in the competitive market rather than from an entity run by the teachers union. Restricting collective bargaining to wages ended the sort of absurd rules for overtime compensation that made a bus driver Madisons highest paid public employee. Act 10s dynamite, however, was the provision ending the states compulsory collection of union dues sometimes as high as $1,400 per year that fund union contributions to Democrats. Barack Obama and his national labor allies made Wisconsin a battleground because they knew that when Indiana made paying union dues optional, 90 percent of state employees quit paying, and similar measures produced similar results in Washington, Colorado and Utah. Walker has long experience in the furnace of resistance to the looting of public funds by the publics employees. He was elected chief executive of heavily Democratic Milwaukee County after his predecessor collaborated with other officials in rewriting pension rules in a way that, if he had been reelected instead of resigning, would have given him a lumpsum payment of $2.3 million and $136,000 a year for life. To fight the recall during which opponents disrupted Walkers appearance at a Special Olympics event, and squeezed Super Glue into the locks of a school he was to visit Walker raised more than $30 million, assembling a nationwide network of conservative donors that could come in handy if he is re-elected next year. Having become the first U.S. governor to survive a recall election, he is today serene as Americas first governor to be, in effect, elected twice to a first term. When he seeks a second term, his probable opponent will be a wealthy opponent who says her only promise is to not make promises. This is her attempt to cope with an awkward fact: She will either infuriate her partys liberal base or alarm a majority of voters by promising either to preserve or repeal Act 10. Walker is politely scathing a neat trick of Mitt Romneys campaign, especially of Romneys statement that Im not concerned about the very poor because we have a very ample safety net. The imperative, Walker said, is to help them escapethe safety net. Outside the Washington beltway, he said pointedly, biggovernment liberals are on the ropes. No incumbent Republican governor has lost a general election since 2007. Since 2008, the number of Republican governors has increased from 21 to 30, just four short of the partys all-time high reached in the 1920s. He thinks Republican governors are in tune with the nation. If re-elected, he probably will test that theory.George Wills email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Adams co-owns a private landfill in Sumter County with Sen. Charles Dean, R-Inverness, and the senators son, Charles Dean Jr. The company, Heart of Florida (A.C.M.S. Inc.), recently negotiated a contract to serve as the official landfill for the city of Inverness. It also has a $20 million contract with Marion County to handle its trash at $8 a ton. Adams took the appropriate step and asked the Florida Ethics Commission to review the situation and advise him if it is permitted for Heart of Florida to participate in seeking sealed bid contracts from Citrus County. Staff attorney Gray Schafer of the Commission on Ethics advised Adams that it is legal for his corporation to do business with the county because he is not officially an employee of the corporation. This means that so long as it is your business and not you personally that is in contract with Marion County, you will not be found in violation if Marion County enters into an arrangement with Citrus County, the attorney wrote in an opinion sought by Adams. Adams is not an employee of the A.C.M.S. Inc.; he is an officer of the company and lists on his financial disclosure forms that his holdings in the Sumter County landfill are valued at $8.4 million. The contract in question is not a big deal, but the precedent set here is. County Administrator Brad Thorpe was seeking an interlocal agreement with another county landfill in case the Citrus County landfill becomes incapacitated from an emergency or natural disaster. Thorpe decided not to seek a bid from Marion County because Marion uses the landfill owned by Adams in Sumter County and he wanted to avoid any problems. Adams is an intense critic of the Citrus County landfill and he felt our county could get a better deal by going through Marion County and using his landfill. The Ethics Commission ruling suggests that because in this case, Citrus County would be contracting with Marion County, and not directly with the company, it would be OK. The Ethics Commission attorney also said there is an exemption Adams and his company could use to do business with Citrus County as long as the business is awarded through sealed, competitive bids and that he as a commissioner does not draw up the bid specifications nor use influence in the awarding of the bid. Adams would also have to formally disclose his conflict. In our view, that appears to be a very large exemption that wealthy elected officials can use to get public business for their private companies. Adams is to be congratulated for pushing the issue and getting an opinion before any real ethics violation took place. We will continue to believe that it is inappropriate for any elected official to do private business with the agency he serves. We dont want to see the commissioner who owns an insurance company selling insurance to the county. We dont want to see the commissioners who have interests in building companies win bids to construct county buildings. Wed prefer to think that our elected officials would spend all of their time watching out for the interests of the residents of Citrus County, and not get them confused with personal business interests. The Florida Ethics Commission attorney has given Adams the green light that its within the law to do business with the county if competitive bids are involved. There are still difficult questions that remain concerning Adams future involvement in official discussions and debates about the Citrus County landfill operations. The commissioner obviously feels that private enterprise could do a more efficient job in operating the Citrus County landfill, and if the recent Inverness move is any indication, his company will have an interest in handling our communitys trash. For the record, we prefer the sealed bid process for making any major decision involving how tax dollars are spent on outside services. The most important criteria in non-public safety issues are to provide the best service at the best price. THE ISSUE:Ethics commission opinion.OUR OPINION:A good move.

it is not going to be able to do it, said Mark McClellan, who oversaw the rollout of the Medicare prescription drug benefit under President George W. Bush. Its important to recognize that none of these programs are going to work perfectly from the start and a big part of implementation is having mechanisms in place that anticipate problems and help mitigate their effects, added McClellan, now a health care policy expert with the Brookings Institution think tank in Washington. But on Monday, administration officials projected renewed confidence that theyre on top of things. White House spokesman Jay Carney declared that the federal site serving 36 states got 375,000 visitors by noon. Even as fixes continued on back-end features of the system, enrollment counselors said the consumer-facing front end was working noticeably better but still was not free of glitches or delays. As Carney acknowledged, some of Monday mornings visitors were shuttled into a queue and advised when to return for speedier service. Thats actually an improvement to handle high volume, he said. In the central Illinois city of Mattoon, enrollment counselor Valerie Spencer said she and her team finally signed up their first person in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. Now they have a half-dozen success stories and dozens of consumers with appointments to finish applications at the Sarah Bush Lincoln Center, a small hospital serving the region. The health care law offers subsidized private insurance to middle class people who dont have access to job-based coverage. The White House is aiming for 7 million people to enroll for private plans through new state-based marketplaces also called exchanges. Low-income people will be steered to an expanded version of Medicaid in states accepting it. People have until Dec. 23 to sign up for coverage that starts on Jan. 1. Its crunch time and a lot of people are really nervous, Spencer said. An even bigger enrollment surge is expected the first part of next year, ahead of a March 31 deadline to avoid the laws tax penalties for those who remain uninsured. In Beverly Hills, Fla., north of Tampa, selfemployed real estate appraiser Tom Woolford said he was finally able to get all the way through the process Sunday and enroll in a Blue Cross Blue Shield plan. Except nothing happened when he clicked a link to pay his first months premium. As far as I know, I am in orbit someplace and nobodys got a transponder on me, said Woolford, who was otherwise pleased with the plan and his costs. Hell give it a week and see if the health plan reaches out to him. If consumers still have unresolved issues, so do the feds. Among them:THEBACKROOMPrivate insurers complain that much of the enrollment information theyve gotten on individual consumers is practically useless. It is corrupted by errors, duplication or garbles. Efforts to fix underlying problems are underway, but the industry isnt happy with the progress and is growing increasingly concerned. Over the weekend, as government officials trumpeted improvements to the website, the leading industry trade group pointedly called attention to the data mess. The president of the largest health insurance trade group said the website fix wont be complete until the entire system works from end to end. Karen Ignagni, president of Americas Health Insurance Plans, raised the prospect that consumers might not be able to get access to needed benefits Jan. 1. There really needs to be an intense focus now on the back end of the process, said Joel Ario, who oversaw initial planning for the insurance marketplaces in the Obama administration and is now a top consultant with Manatt Health Solutions. Administration spokeswoman Julie Bataille said thats already happening. More than 80 percent of insurers problems were due to one bug that affected Social Security numbers, she said. Thats been fixed.CRAFTINGANEWPITCHLargely because of the federal website problems, major advertising campaigns encouraging everyone from the young and hip to the middle aged and health conscious to enroll have been put on hold. The worry now is that the technology debacle may have done lasting harm to the outreach plan. And even a revamped website with new bells and whistles is going to have to compete for attention with the year-end holidays. The real question in my mind is can they turn around the messaging? said Caroline Pearson, who is tracking the overhaul for Avalere Health, a market analysis firm. Theyve had eight weeks of terrible press. Can they begin to reach out with a message of things are fixed and were back on track? Its unclear how much candor will creep into the pitch. Some enrollment counselors feel a need to acknowledge the problems.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER3, 2013 A11 000GRQH Citrus County in conjunction with Lowes Home Improvement and the Citrus County Chronicle December 13, 2013 2:00 pm $15 per tree Central Ridge Community Center at Beverly Hills Payable in advance.

In the hunt BUTCH COMEGYS/ The Scranton Times-TribuneDominick Sacchetti Jr., 11, of Olyphant, Pa., has his face painted Monday at Jessup Mountain in Jessup, Pa., during the first day of the states major deer hunting season. Officials said about 750,000 people were expected to be hunting as the season began. Shooting over Alabama lossBIRMINGHAM, Ala. A woman charged with killing a fellow Alabama fan after the end of last weekends Iron Bowl football game was angry that the victim and others didnt seem upset over the Crimson Tides loss to archrival Auburn. Adrian Laroze Briskey, 28, was charged Monday with murder in the killing of 36year-old Michelle Shepherd. The victims sister, Nekesa Shepherd, said Briskey flew into a rage when she saw the sisters and others joking that the Crimson Tides loss wasnt as bad as if the NBAs Miami Heat had lost a game. She said we werent real Alabama fans because it didnt bother us that they lost. And then she started shooting, Shepherd said.Illinois prepares for pension voteSPRINGFIELD, Ill. Illinois lawmakers began putting the pieces in place Monday for a potentially historic vote to address the nations worst publicpension shortfall, as legislators scrambled to digest the complex deal and labor unions and other political heavyweights ratcheted up pressure for and against it. The House and Senate are expected to vote Tuesday on the years-in-themaking agreement. Legislative leaders said the proposal, which emerged last week, would save an estimated $160 billion over 30 years and fully fund the states five pension systems by 2044 through benefits cuts for workers and retirees. Illinois pension funds are $100 billion short of whats needed to pay benefits as currently promised to employees and retirees, largely because lawmakers for years have failed to fully fund the states payments to the systems. But until last week, legislative leaders were unable to agree on how to fix the problem even as pension payments grew to take up about onefifth of the states budget and credit rating agencies repeatedly downgraded the state. Illinois now has the lowest credit rating of any state in the country.Amazon eyes delivery dronesNEW YORK Amazon is working on a way to get packages to customers in 30 minutes or less via self-guided drone.

Thai protests seen escalatingBANGKOK A firebrand opposition leader vowed Monday to escalate his campaign to topple Thailands government, and ordered his followers to storm Bangkoks police headquarters after they fought all day with riot police protecting heavily barricaded key buildings. Earlier Monday, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said she is willing to do anything it takes to end the violent protests, but made it clear she cannot accept the oppositions demand to hand power to an unelected council. Yingluck was elected with an overwhelming majority in 2011, and many observers see the protesters demand as unreasonable if not outlandish.Iceland police kill for first timeLONDON Police in Iceland said Monday they shot dead a gunman the first time armed police have killed someone in the nation. Iceland, which has a tiny population of around 320,000, has a low crime rate and gun violence is extremely rare. Its regular police force does not carry firearms. Police said officers were called to an apartment in the Reykjavik suburb of Arbaer early Monday when a man fired a shotgun from inside the flat. Two policemen, who were not armed, were shot at when trying to enter the gunmans apartment. A special armed unit then entered and fired at the man, who was rushed to the hospital, where he died. No one else was injured.Venezuela caps car pricesCARCAS, Venezuela Venezuelas government is setting limits on prices for cars as President Nicolas Maduro tries to close a popular loophole used by savers to guard against the fastest inflation in two decades. Maduro said Monday that he would use new emergency decree powers granted by Congress to enable the government to set fair prices for all cars sold in Venezuela. At the same time, used vehicles wont be allowed to exceed the price of newer models, he said in televised remarks. Automobiles purchased in Venezuela generally jump in value as soon as they leave the dealerships lot as decade-old currency controls reduce the availability of imported cars and parts, leading to monthslong waiting lists. Amid the shortage of new cars, demand for even decade-old clunkers has been soaring as Venezuelans buy durable goods as a store of value at a time their salaries and savings are being eroded by 54 percent inflation. Last month, Maduro launched an offensive against businesses he accuses of gouging consumers. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressWASHINGTON On perhaps the busiest online shopping day of the year, the Supreme Court refused to wade into a dispute over state sales taxes for purchases on websites like Amazon.com, an outcome likely to prompt more states to attempt to collect taxes on Internet sales. Mondays court action means it might be the last Cyber Monday without sales tax, said Joseph Henchman of the Washington-based Tax Foundation. Its all part of a furious battle also including legislation in Congress among Internet sellers, millions of buyers, aggrieved brick-and-mortar stores and states hungry for billions of dollars in extra tax revenue. The high court without comment turned away appeals from Amazon.com LLC and Overstock.com Inc. in their fight against a New York court decision forcing them to remit sales tax the same way in-state businesses do. This could hurt online shopping in that state, since one of the attractions of Internet purchasing is the lack of a state sales tax, which makes some items a little cheaper than they would be inside a store on the corner. And the effect could be felt far beyond New York if it encourages other states to act. The National Council of State Legislatures estimates that states lost an estimated $23.3 billion in 2012 as a result of being unable to collect sales tax on online and catalog purchases. The courts refusal allows states that have passed laws like New Yorks to continue doing what theyve been doing, said Neal Osten, director of the Councils Washington office. Court wont block Internet tax Decision not to review case could shake up state revenues Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Facing huge anti-government demonstrations after spurning a deal with the European Union, Ukraines embattled president sought Monday to quell public anger by moving to renew talks with Brussels. The opposition, meanwhile, scrambled to secure enough votes in parliament to oust the Cabinet and try to force an early presidential election, in the biggest unrest in the country since the 2004 Orange Revolution. President Viktor Yanukovych struggled to reaffirm his grip on power as thousands of demonstrators besieged government buildings in Kiev, his party suffered defections and three cities in the west of the country openly defied the central government. The protests were sparked by Yanukovychs decision to ditch the political association and free trade pact with the EU, followed by the violent dispersal of a small peaceful rally in Kiev over the weekend. Russian President Vladimir Putin, who strongly opposed the EU deal, denounced the opposition protests in Kiev as pogroms. On Monday, Yanukovych called European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and asked to renew negotiations on signing the association agreement. He also said in an interview with Ukraines main television channels that he remains committed to European integration, but would like to negotiate better terms for the fragile Ukrainian economy. Yanukovych urged the opposition for calm and dialogue with the government. But his call fell flat with opposition leaders who were hoping to summon enough parliamentary votes Tuesday to oust the Cabinet led by Yanukovychs loyal supporter, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, and force an early presidential vote. We need to change the system. There must be a complete reloading of the leadership, world boxing champion turned opposition leader Vitali Klitschko told reporters. It was unclear whether the opposition could muster the 226 votes it needs in the 450-seat parliament to oust Azarov and his Cabinet. The opposition controls about 170 seats, but independents hold 35 more and the governing Party of Regions was shedding support. At least three of its lawmakers quit in protest and one of them, Inna Bohoslovska, previously a vocal government supporter, called on other legislators to leave the party. A top Agriculture Ministry official also resigned Monday. Oleksandr Yefremov, head of the Party of Regions faction in parliament, said lawmakers would discuss the situation Tuesday morning and might then put a no-confidence motion up for a vote. But he argued that there were no grounds to dismiss the government because of the protests, which have centered on Kievs main Independence Square, popularly referred to as Maidan. Our goal is to make sure that the people on Maidan calm down, Yefremov said. Opinion surveys conducted before the protests showed about 45 percent of Ukrainians supporting closer integration with the EU, with a third or less favoring closer ties with Russia. Ukraine on edge Huge protests force president to backtrack on EU decision Associated PressProtesters shout and wave flags Monday while marching toward government headquarters in downtown Kiev, Ukraine. Hundreds of Ukrainian protesters have blocked entrances to the government building and called for the ouster of the prime minister and his cabinet. The Monday blockade follows a massive rally in the capital a day earlier by Ukrainians angered by President Viktor Yanukovychs refusal to sign a political and economic agreement with the European Union, opting instead for closer ties with Moscow. Associated PressNEW YORK Fastfood workers in about 100 cities will walk off the job on Thursday, organizers say, which would mark the largest effort yet in a push for higher pay. The actions are intended to build on a campaign that began about a year ago to call attention to the difficulties of living on the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, or about $15,000 a year for a fulltime employee. The protests are part of a movement by labor unions, Democrats and other worker advocacy groups to raise pay in lowwage sectors. Last month, President Barack Obama said he would back a Senate measure to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 an hour. Protesters are calling for $15 an hour, although many see the figure as a rallying point rather than a near-term possibility. Its not clear how large the turnout will be at any given location, or whether the walkouts will be enough to disrupt operations. Similar actions this summer had varying results, with some restaurants unable to serve customers and others seemingly unaffected. The National Restaurant Association, an industry lobbying group, called the demonstrations a campaign engineered by national labor groups, and said the vast majority of participants were union protesters rather than workers. Kendall Fells, a New York City-based organizer for Fast Food Forward, said demonstrations are planned for 100 cities, in addition to the 100 cities where workers will strike. He said plans started coming together shortly after the one-day actions in about 60 cities this summer. They understand theyre not going to win from a one-day strike, Fells said of workers. Still, organizers face an uphill battle in reshaping an industry that competes aggressively on low prices.

Washington coach takes over Trojans Associated PressLOS ANGELES Steve Sarkisian was named the head coach at Southern California on Monday, leaving Washington to return to the Trojans storied football program for another run at national titles. Two days after USCs regular season ended with a home loss to UCLA, Trojans athletic director Pat Haden replaced interim coach Ed Orgeron with yet another assistant coach from Pete Carrolls championshipwinning era at the school. The 39-year-old Sarkisian is a Los Angeles-area native who went 34-29 in five seasons at Washington, rebuilding a decimated program into a bowl contender. He is the permanent replacement for Lane Kiffin, his former co-offensive coordinator at USC under Carroll. Sarkisian will be introduced at a news conference today. In a statement released by USC, the coach thanked the Huskies for his first head coaching opportunity. I am extremely excited to be coming home to USC and for the opportunity that USC presents to win championships, Sarkisian said. I cant wait to get started. Kiffin was fired in late September and replaced by Orgeron, who didnt get the permanent job from Haden despite going 6-2. Crosstown rival UCLA trounced USC 35-14 last Saturday in what turned out to be the Trojans final game under Orgeron, who resigned Monday after failing to get the head job. Haden didnt immediately announce who will coach the Trojans in their bowl game later this month, but it could be Sarkisian, who immediately left Washington. He also could bring a handful of Huskies assistants with him to USC. Haden said USC conducted a major search during the regular season, interviewing five coaches for the job. We kept coming back to Sark, Haden said. He is the only one who was offered the job. I believe in my gut that he is the right coach for USC at this time. He embodies many of the qualities for which we looked. He is an innovative coach who recruits well and develops players. He is a proven and successful leader.

Mike Glennons first multiple turnover game in eight weeks certainly didnt help the teams chances during a lopsided loss to Carolina that stopped a three-game winning streak, however coach Greg Schiano noted Sunday that the lack of a consistent running game and an inability score touchdowns instead of settling for field goals also continue to undermine the Bucs (3-9). Despite winning three of four following an 0-8 start, Sundays 27-6 loss to Panthers assures Tampa Bay of finishing with a losing record for the third straight year. The Bucs, who havent made the playoffs since 2007, have posted their two lowest yardage totals of the year the past two weeks 229 in a victory over Detroit and a season-low 206 against the Panthers, who have the NFLs No. 1 defense. Im disappointed in all of us, Schiano said, bemoaning missed opportunities that might have given his team a chance to keep the game close. Theyre playing at a high level right now, yet I thought there were plenty of opportunities, especially early in the game to kind of set the course of the game where wed be able to make it a fourthquarter game, the second-year coach added. We didnt take advantage of it.

Shabazz Napier hit a jumper from the free throw line as time expired to keep No. 12 Connecticut undefeated with a 65-64 victory over No. 15 Florida on Monday night. Napier, limping on a left ankle he hurt during a four-point play with 33 seconds left, escaped a trap around 30 feet from the basket and got off a wild shot that missed but was tipped blindly back by DeAndre Daniels. Napier grabbed the ball and let go a jumper that went through as the horn sounded and set off a deafening cheer from the sellout crowd of 10,167 at Gampel Pavilion.

B2TUESDAY, DECEMBER3, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Villanova comes flying into the AP Top 25 Wildcats defeated ranked Kansas, Iowa last week Associated PressBreaking down this weeks Associated Press college basketball poll: JUMPING IN: Villanovas wins over Kansas and Iowa on the way to the Battle 4 Atlantis championship were a boost to the Wildcats, moving from unranked to No. 14 in the AP poll. Thats an impressive jump into the poll, but its far from the best. In November 1989, Kansas went from unranked to No. 4 after beating No. 2 LSU, No. 1 UNLV and No. 25 St. Johns in the NIT Season Tip-Off, which was known then as the Preseason NIT. The second-best improvement was by Connecticut in November 2010 when the Huskies went from unranked to No. 7 after beating No. 2 Michigan State and No. 8 Kentucky on the way to winning the Maui Invitational. NEWCOMERS: Villanova wasnt the only newcomer to this weeks poll. San Diego State used its wins over Creighton and Marquette en route to the championship run of the Wooden Legacy to arrive at No. 24. The Aztecs were ranked in 12 of the first 13 weeks last season. Its been a longer time for Dayton, appearing at No. 25 following its third-place finish at the Maui Invitational. The Flyers beat thenNo. 11 Gonzaga in the opening round, lost to then-No. 18 Baylor in the semifinals when a lastsecond shot didnt fall and beat California for third place. The Flyers last appearance in the Top 25 was the first two weeks of 2009-10. Villanova and San Diego State are the only teams this season with two wins over ranked teams. SO LONG: Three teams dropped out of the poll this week, with North Carolinas fall from No. 16 the biggest exit. The Tar Heels were 12th in the preseason poll and the first poll of the regular season. Their home loss to Belmont dropped them to No. 24. North Carolina turned that drop around the next week when the upset of then-No. 3 Louisville moved it to No. 16. That wasnt enough of a cushion to keep the Tar Heels from falling out after the 63-59 loss to UAB on Sunday. The others to fall from the ranks of the ranked this week were Big East members who both lost two games. Creighton fell from 20th after losses to San Diego State and George Washington in the Wooden Legacy. Marquette dropped from No. 25 after losing at Arizona State and to San Diego State in the Wooden Legacy. RISE AND FALL: Memphis and Syracuse used wins in holiday tournaments to make the weeks biggest moves in the Top 25. The Tigers won the Old Spice Classic, beating then-No. 5 Oklahoma State 73-68 in the championship game to move from 21st to No. 16. It was an impressive win, considering Memphis lost 101-80 at Oklahoma State two weeks earlier. Syracuse beat Minnesota, California and then-No. 18 Baylor to win the Maui Invitational. The Orange moved from No. 8 to fourth with the three wins. Gonzaga, which lost Dayton in the opening round at the Maui Invitational before beating Chaminade and Arkansas in the consolation bracket, had the weeks biggest fall from 11th to No. 19. Pirates blanked on the roadThe Crystal River boys soccer team fell to 1-6 overall and in district play with a 5-0 loss at Nature Coast on Monday night.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Florida State, which has the inside track to the BCS championship game, had six secondteam picks and four third-team selections. Duke had four first-team picks with receiver Jamison Crowder, linebacker Kelby Brown, cornerback Ross Cockrell and safety Jeremy Cash. That group helped the Blue Devils (10-2) secure the Coastal Division championship and the programs first 10-win season. Crowder, the leagues receptions leader, was the only player selected at multiple positions. He made the second team as a specialist after returning a pair of punts for touchdowns. North Carolina also had four first-team picks in tight end Eric Ebron, offensive tackle James Hurst, defensive end Kareem Martin and specialist Ryan Switzer a freshman who tied the ACC single-season record with four punt return touchdowns. Boston College, Clemson and Miami were the only other teams to have multiple first-team picks, including Tigers star receiver Sammy Watkins. New ACC members Pittsburgh and Syracuse combined for seven picks, though Pitt defensive tackle Aaron Donald was the only first-teamer.

COLLEGE BIG TEN CONFERENCE Fined Nebraska $10,000 for a violation of the conferences sportsmanship policy by football coach Bo Pelini during Fridays game. FLORIDA Announced CB Loucheiz Purifoy will enter the NFL draft. SOUTHERN CAL Announced the resignation of interim football coach Ed Orgeron. Named Steve Sarkisian football coach. WAKE FOREST Announced the resignation of football coach Jim Grobe. Glennon, meanwhile, was 14 of 21 for 180 yards in his ninth start. The third-round draft pick failed to throw for at least one touchdown for the first time as a pro and, with Tampa Bay trailing 7-6, also lost a fumble that stopped a drive inside the Carolina 10. He did some things (Sunday) that he hasnt done. I think part of it has to do with the defense. He was trying to make something happen, Schiano said. He and I have sat down already and discussed that circumstances can never dictate behavior. You have to go out and do your thing. It doesnt mean that the play calls dont change based on certain (situations), but our core beliefs on quarterback play dont change based on circumstance, and a little bit of that happened. For the second straight week, the rookie received little help from a rushing attack thats bogged down since posting three of the four highest totals of the season during a stretch in which the Bucs lost on the road at Seattle and beat Miami and Atlanta at home. A week gaining 22 yards on the ground at Detroit, the Bucs rushed for 66 yards on 20 carries and were 1-of-10 on third-down conversions against the Panthers. Schiano doesnt take solace in the fact that the Lions and Panthers both rank among the league leaders in run defense. He said it on him, and his coaching staff, to take the lead in solving the problem. Its the NFL, weve got to find a way to score points and move the ball against whatever defense were playing, the coach said. We need to find better ways to help these guys, and then we need to execute better. Schiano reiterated his confidence in Glennon, whos thrown for a Bucs rookie-record 1,962 yards and 13 touchdowns. Hes thrown just five interceptions in 290 passing attempts. Im really encouraged with Mikes development even though yesterday wasnt one of his finest performances, Schiano said. I think hes a guy who will rebound. Notes: Schiano said LB Jonathan Casillas suffered a knee injury and likely will need seasonending surgery. Well have to see, the coach said. ... CB Darrelle Revis left Sundays game with an upper torso injury that Schiano said doesnt appear to be serious. The three-time All-Pro missed practice time last week with a sore groin. SPUTTERINGContinued from Page B1 6 minutes. Daniels had 14 points for Connecticut, which was outrebounded 34-26, but was able to make up a size difference with its strong guard play on the perimeter. This was Connecticuts first game this season against a ranked opponent. Floridas previous loss was in its only game against a ranked team, Wisconsin. Casey Prather had 19 points and seven rebounds for the Gators, while Patric Young had 17 points and seven rebounds. Scottie Wilbekin, playing in his third game of the season after being suspended for the first four, had 15 points but he injured an ankle with 3:01 to play, was taken to the locker room and never returned. After Wilbekin left Young took over, scoring the Gators next seven points, two baskets on his hook shot and another on an offensive rebound. That made it 62-59 Florida with 1:18 to play. Connecticut missed two 3-point attempts but got the rebound on both. Napier took a 25-foot jumper that swished and he was fouled by Dorian Finney-Smith. The joy of the crowd was tempered as Napier stayed on the court for about a minute, holding his left ankle. Connecticut coach Kevin Ollie called a timeout so Napier could stay in the game and take the free throw. He made it to give the Huskies a 63-62 lead with 33 seconds left. Michael Frazier II, with Connecticut paying a lot of attention to Young inside, drove to the basket and scored with 17 seconds left to give the Gators a 64-63 lead. The ball was in Napiers hands for the final shot and he finally did score after Daniels tipped the ball back to him. Florida outscored the Huskies 32-14 in the paint as Connecticut struggled to defend Young, who was 6 of 10 from the field. Florida committed 16 turnovers, two more than the Huskies in a game that was physical on all 94 feet of the court. The programs only other meeting was in the 1994 Sweet 16, when the Gators won 69-60 in overtime on the way to the Final Four. BUZZERContinued from Page B1
B4TUESDAY, DECEMBER3, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFOOTBALL NFL BRIEFSManning, Tuck lead Giants over Redskins 24-17LANDOVER, Md. Eli Manning completed 22 of 28 passes for 235 yards, and Justin Tuck had four sacks to help shut down Robert Griffin III in the second half Sunday night, leading the New York Giants to a 24-17 win over the Washington Redskins. Andre Brown had a pair of touchdown runs, including a 1-yarder early in the fourth quarter that put the Giants ahead for good. Griffin was 16 for 17 at halftime, but he went 8 for 15 in the second half, and the Redskins managed only 96 total yards after halftime. The win keeps the Giants (5-7) two games behind NFC East leaders Dallas and Philadelphia with four to play, while the Redskins (3-9) were mathematically eliminated from the postseason for the 17th time in 21 years.NFL: Officials erred at end of night gameNEW YORK The NFL said Sunday nights officiating crew should have stopped play and eliminated confusion about the down and distance at the end of the New York Giants 24-17 victory at Washington. A 4-yard completion to the Redskins Pierre Garcon was spotted short of a first down. Referee Jeff Triplette signaled third down. But the head linesman, with Washington in a hurry-up offense, incorrectly motioned for the crew to advance the chains, which caused the down boxes to read first down. League officiating director Dean Blandino said Monday in a statement that in this situation where there is obvious confusion as to the status of the down, play should have been stopped prior to third down and the correct down communicated to both clubs. This should have occurred regardless of the fact that Washington had no timeouts and it was inside two minutes.NFL keeps Bengals-Steelers night gameNEW YORK The NFL will keep the AFC North matchup between Cincinnati and Pittsburgh as the prime-time game on Sunday, Dec. 15. The Bengals (8-4) lead the division and will visit the Steelers (5-7), whom they beat in Week 2 at Cincinnati. However, the league is moving the Saints-Rams game in St. Louis and the Cardinals-Titans game in Nashville to 4:25 p.m.Smith says hes been told hes still Jets starterFLORHAM PARK, N.J. Geno Smith is staying put as the New York Jets starting quarterback. His hold on the job, however, is tenuous at best. Smith said Monday he was told by quarterbacks coach David Lee that he would start the home game Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. Smith was benched in favor of Matt Simms at halftime of the Jets 23-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins following another brutal performance. The rookie was 4 for 10 for 29 yards with an interception and an 8.3 quarterback rating in two quarters. He has one touchdown against New England on Oct. 20 and 11 interceptions in his last seven games. The Jets (5-7) have lost three straight to go from controlling their playoff destiny a few weeks ago to barely hanging on in the postseason mix.From wire reports COLLEGE FOOTBALL BRIEFSFlorida CB Purifoy declares for NFL draftGAINESVILLE Florida cornerback Loucheiz Purifoy has declared for the NFL draft, forgoing his final year of eligibility. The school made the announcement Monday, two days after the Gators (4-8) completed their first losing season since 1979. Purifoy joins teammate Dominique Easley, who announced he is turning pro after a season-ending knee injury in September. Purifoy played in 37 games at Florida, including 19 starts, and finished with 102 tackles, 12 pass breakups, five forced fumbles, 4 1/2 tackles for loss, three blocked kicks, two interceptions, two sacks and a fumble recovery. Florida coach Will Muschamp is percent supportive of Purifoys decision. Purifoy had 24 tackles, seven pass breakups and two interceptions this season. He said, its best for me and my family to pursue a career in the NFL.Beckman will be back as Illinois coach in 2014CHAMPAIGN, Ill. Illinois has confirmed that football coach Tim Beckman will be back for a third season in 2014. Athletic Director Mike Thomas said Monday through a spokesman that Beckman will return. Thomas and Beckman plan to talk later this week about the football staff and other aspects of the program. Speculation about Beckmans job security followed him through much of the 4-8 season that ended with Saturdays 37-34 loss to Northwestern. Some fans called for Beckmans ouster after his first season at Illinois. The Illini went 2-10. Beckman was traveling Monday and not available for comment. Hes finishing out the second year of a five-year contract.Grobe resigns after 13 years at Wake ForestWINSTON-SALEM, N.C. Wake Forest coach Jim Grobe is resigning after 13 seasons at the school. Grobe made the announcement Monday during a news conference, saying I just really feel right now, its probably good for the program to have some new energy, some new direction. The 61-year-old Grobe finishes with a career record of 110-115-1 in a combined 19 years at Wake Forest and Ohio. The unquestioned highlight of Grobes career came in 2006. He was named the AP national coach of the year after leading Wake Forest to its first Atlantic Coast Conference championship since 1970, winning a school-record 11 victories and earning a berth in the Orange Bowl.Auburn pair earn SEC honors off Alabama upsetBIRMINGHAM, Ala. Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall is the Southeastern Conference offensive player of the week while teammate Chris Davis shares special teams honors with Vanderbilt kicker Carey Spear. Missouri cornerback E.J. Gaines and Mississippi State safety Nickoe Whitley shared defensive honors Monday. Marshall accounted for three touchdowns in Auburns 34-28 win over Alabama. Davis returned a missed field goal 109 yards on the final play.From wire reports Florida St. ranked No. 1 for first time since 2000 season Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State was voted the No. 1 team in the FBS Sunday for the first time since Oct. 1, 2000. The Seminoles are heavily favored against Duke in the upcoming Atlantic Coast Conference championship game and are 60 minutes from a berth in the BCS title game. Coach Jimbo Fisher benefited from a team with the ability to ignore outside distractions and focus on the immediate task each week. The team will stick to a script that has worked for 12 games, but there tends to be a different feel in the air when a program is considered the best in the nation. Fisher disagreed that theres a difference. Not one bit, Fisher said Sunday afternoon. There hasnt been a change to the status of Heisman Trophy candidate Jameis Winston, either. The redshirt quarterback is the focus of an ongoing sexual assault investigation stemming from an incident with a female student Dec. 7, 2012. The family of the accuser issued a statement through attorney Patricia Carroll, saying Winston raped the woman. Winstons lawyer Tim Jansen has suggested the sex between the two was consensual. There is no definitive timetable for when a decision will be made on whether to charge the 19-year-old Winston in the case. It hasnt altered (our preparation) in any way, Fisher said. Our team is not insulated from it. We deal with it. We address those issues. We control what we can control and thats how we prepare and how we play. Thats how they go about it. That methodology helped Florida State (12-0) climb from a No. 11 preseason ranking as the Seminoles chased other programs all season. Clemson was the preseason favorite to win the conference and ranked No. 3 when the two teams met Oct. 19. Florida State won 51-14. The eyes of Florida State fans turned toward then-No. 2 Oregon. The Ducks lost to Stanford 26-20 five days after the Seminoles beat Miami 41-14. The We want Bama cheers began to float out of the stands during Florida State home game after the Seminoles moved to No. 2. Then twotime defending champion Alabama lost 34-28 to No. 3 Auburn. The regular season ended with Florida State ranked the top team in the country. Fisher said the only thing those rankings show is their consistency. Hopefully we can do it one more week until the bowl season starts, Fisher said. Weve been able to focus and do that and not pay attention to the outside things and worry about anything. We cant worry about where were ranked and what goes on. We just have to worry about preparing and playing and thats all we tell our guys. Top 10 rankings and national championship implications were the least of the Blue Devils concerns. They needed a 27-25 win against North Carolina on Saturday to reach the conference championship. Florida State ranked No. 10 at the end of 2012, but Duke (10-2) hasnt had a winning season since going 8-4 in 1994. The program has had four winless seasons during that span. These guys deserve more respect than what people have given them, really, overall, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. Were not just fortunate. Were a good football team. We wouldnt be where we are if werent good. We were a good football team a year ago. We lost some games that got away from us. Im very excited about whats happening to this team because its going to help our program. Our guys have believed. Associated PressFlorida State running back Karlos Williams runs past Florida defensive lineman Damien Jacobs for yardage Saturday during the second half in Gainesville. The Seminoles defeated the Gators 37-7 and are ranked No. 1 for the first time since 2000 after Alabama lost later in the day. Postseason possible for Miami Inconsistent Dolphins still in playoff race Associated PressDAVIE The Miami Dolphins had a record of 3-3, and then 4-4, and then 5-5. Each time they lost the next game. Now theyre 6-6, although defensive end Olivier Vernon sees it another way. Its like the season has started over, Vernon said. Its 0-0, and we are going to try to grind out. With enough grinding, maybe the Dolphins can climb above .500. They have a chance Sunday at Pittsburgh (5-7). The Dolphins will try to build on their best performance of the year, a 23-3 road victory Sunday against the New York Jets. The win brought the Dolphins season back from the brink, and now theyre tied with Baltimore for the sixth-best record in the race for the AFCs six playoff berths. To end a franchiserecord streak of four consecutive losing seasons, Miami cant continue its recent pattern of losewin-lose-win-lose-win. Weve talked about how the performance level on the field has to be better in December, and part of that now is consistency, coach Joe Philbin said Monday. Were not going to reinvent ourselves from a schematic standpoint. We should have an identity by now of things we do well. Weve got to be more consistent. With four games left, the margin for error is small perhaps nonexistent. We are in the playoff hunt, and we have to win every game, said linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, who knows the routine because he played on Baltimores Super Bowl championship team a year ago. But its very important to not look too far down the road. Players probably shouldnt, but fans can. Three of the Dolphins final four opponents are under .500, and the toughest remaining game against AFC East leader New England is in Miami. Despite an earlyseason four-game losing streak, followed by a bullying scandal that threatened to sabotage the season, the Dolphins still have a shot at their first playoff berth since 2008. We are fighters, Vernon said. We love having everyone against us. A loss to New York likely would have doomed the Dolphins postseason chances, but instead they dominated, outgaining the Jets 453177. Both totals were the best of the season for the Miami. The offense showed uncharacteristic balance to control the ball for nearly 39 minutes, Miamis highest total in three years. It starts with the run game the offensive line doing a great job, the backs hitting the holes when theyre there, getting the tough yardage, quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. A season-high 36 rushing plays kept the Jets No. 1-ranked run defense off balance. Tannehill also threw for 331 yards, the second-highest total in his 28 career starts, and he was sacked only once a season low even though Miami again played with a patchwork offensive line. Tannehill is finally starting to mesh with Mike Wallace, who in the past two games has 12 catches for 209 yards and two scores, tripling his touchdown total for the season. Third-year tight end Charles Clay had a career-high seven catches for 80 yards against New York, and Brian Hartline added a season-high 127 yards receiving on nine catches. The defense also hit several high-water marks, led by second-year pro Vernon with a career-best 2 1/2 sacks. He has 5 1/2 in the past three games. The victory was the most lopsided this year for Miami, which has had eight games decided by four points or less. Philbin even allowed himself a smile as the final minutes ticked off. A unique situation, he said. It was a different feeling. The question now for the up-and-down Dolphins is how long they can make that feeling last. Associated PressMiami quarterback Ryan Tannehill throws Sunday against the New York Jets during the first half in East Rutherford, N.J. The Dolphins won 23-3 to improve to 6-6 on the season.

Inside:Precious Paws, Home at Last team up to make sure pets have happy holidays, too./C5 Dont worry about decorating the house, baking or buying gifts for everyone in your life. Remind yourself that this is temporary. For a short period, you can relax, and its OK. Let other people do things for you. Delegate tasks and errands to others, many of whom may be looking for a way to help you during this trying time in your life. Always remember to rest each day. Many people experience fatigue during cancer treatment and need to find the right balance of rest and activities. Many of my patients have a pity party for a day or two, and that is OK, but to long, such as two weeks, could be a sign of clinical depression. The rate of depression among cancer patients is between 15 percent to 24 percent, about twice that in the general population. So if a person in treatment doesnt care about getting out of bed, or is physically unable to get up, it could be clinical depression rather than fatigue, and should be discussed with a doctor. Food doesnt taste right to many people in treatment, and rich holiday dishes can intensify feelings of nausea. Focus on family, friends and spirituality and look forward to enjoying meals at the next holiday, when treatment will be over. Eventually, the taste will come back. People around the cancer patient always want to feed that person. Food represents life and celebration, but love and friendship can easily be the main holiday focus for people with cancer. Others may need to help the person in treatment see past his or her illness to capture the joy and excitement of the holidays. While it is impossible to ignore the fact that you are dealing with cancer, it does not have to be the main course of the entire holiday season. State your intentions to enjoy the moment, and look forward to a better holiday next year. Dr. C.

Contact him at cjbennett@ rboi.com. eople going through cancer treatment need to take special care of themselves through the holidays, which can be stressful even in the best of times. I often tell my patients to use their treatment as permission to be sane over the holidays, to take a break from the normal holiday routine, and try to enjoy themselves. With that in mind, here are a few suggestions to help people with cancer preserve their energy, capture a little holiday joy and deepen their personal relationships this year. Find a way to be festive, such as choosing a few close friends for a small, manageable dinner party. Make it a potluck supper where everyone brings a dish, so you wont have to do all the work. And, make no apologies if you need to retire early or skip a gathering that will be trying, such as one with hyper grandchildren. Do so without regret or an elaborate explanation. Simply saying I dont feel up to it should be all the explanation needed. Thinkstock 000GIG1

Rita explained that several patients seem to be confused about whether or not they have gum disease, known as periodontal disease, as opposed to gingivitis, or swelling of the gums. She thought it would be a good idea to try and explain the difference. I agreed. Many patients have been told that they have gum disease but are confused as to what this actually means. Although gum disease is a general term, it usually refers to either gingivitis or periodontitis. However, there are many differences between the two. Gingivitis is gum inflammation. When the bacteria in plaque builds up, it causes the gums to become inflamed and irritated, which can lead to bleeding when flossing or brushing. When a patient has gingivitis, there is no bone loss, therefore, the teeth are firmly planted and no movement is evident. However, the gums can appear red and swollen. If left untreated, gingivitis can advance to periodontitis, or inflammation of the periodontium the surrounding supportive structures of the teeth. When a patient has periodontitis, the inner layer of the gum and bone can pull away from the teeth, forming a space between the tooth and the gums. This space is called a pocket and food, plaque and debris can collect in these pockets and become infected as bacteria builds. The toxins in plaque bacteria start to break down the bone and other supportive tissues that hold teeth in place. If the disease is allowed to progress, the pockets deepen, making it difficult for the patient to effectively remove the plaque that collects there, thus leading to more destruction of the surrounding bone and tissue. Eventually, when enough surrounding bone is destroyed, the teeth will become loose and the patient may eventually lose those teeth that are affected. During an initial exam, your dentist will be looking for signs of either gingivitis or periodontitis. You may recall having measurements taken where the doctor calls out numbers to his assistant. This is a procedure where the dentist is using an instrument to determine the presence of pockets. The lower the numbers, the less likely that you have periodontitis. However, he or she may detect the signs of gingivitis during that exam and will recommend treatment to prevent the advancement of the gingivitis to periodontitis. If the dentist detects deeper pockets, or other signs of periodontitis, such as red, swollen, bleeding gums, bad breath, receding gums or loose teeth, he or she will recommend treatment to address the disease process. The goal of the treatment of periodontitis is to reduce the pockets and promote reattachment of the gums to the teeth. There are different treatment options, depending on the stage of the disease, ranging from non-surgical therapies that focus on plaque control, to surgery to restore the supportive structures. Since plaque is the primary factor that is responsible for gum disease, plaque control is of utmost importance. Plaque control is accomplished through professional cleanings, at least twice a year, and flossing and brushing daily. While brushing eliminates plaque from reachable tooth surfaces, flossing removes plaque from between teeth and under the gumline where your brush cannot reach. It is not uncommon for patients to not notice signs of gum disease, so it is important to have regular dental exams and to see your hygienist in order to prevent any serious disease to develop. I hope this has helped to clarify this important topic.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Isaw an 84-year-old white female almost one and a half years ago. She presented with a mass in her mouth and a biopsy showed that it was mantle-cell nonHodgkin lymphoma, or NHL. Lymphomas can be Hodgkin or nonHodgkin type; the latter is much more common. There are many different kinds of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. About 7 percent of people with NHLs have mantle-cell lymphoma. It most often appears in people older than 60. It usually involves the bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen and gastrointestinal system (esophagus, stomach, intestines). Mantle-cell lymphoma is usually identified by a protein called the cyclin D1 protein. The patients with mantle-cell NHL, or MCL, are treated initially with chemotherapy. Most patients initially respond well to chemotherapy. My patient was treated with chemotherapy and she responded very well, as expected. Her cancer went into complete remission. I just did a PET/CT scan and her cancer is still in remission. This is one and half years after diagnosis. Unfortunately, mantle-cell NHL is not curable, and it tends to recur after a few years. When that happens, the patients need another chemotherapy. Recently, the FDA approved a new drug Ibrutinib (Imbruvica), a breakthrough drug for MCL that has been hailed as a successor to traditional chemotherapy in treating hematological cancer. This study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in June 2013. The study consisted of 111 patients with MCL who took the once-daily drug, 68 percent had their cancer shrink or disappear. Other drugs treating MCL have much lower response rates. Those who responded tended to respond for a median of one and a half years. This is very encouraging. This is an oral drug and is taken as four pills a day. The most common adverse events experienced by clinical-trial participants include low blood counts, diarrhea, fatigue and body aches. Overall, it is well tolerated. This drug in other studies has shown to be very effective in other cancers like CLL or chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and Waldenstroms macroglobulinemia. We will need to wait for approval in these cancers. This drug works by a completely different mechanism of action. It is going to be very expensive and will cost more than $100,000 a year. It will revolutionize the way we treat MCL. If my patients cancer ever recurs, she may be a good candidate for this new drug.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Mucus lines the respiratory tract and lays down a blanket of protection. The process starts in your nose and nostrils and ends with your alveolus, which are little sacs in the lungs which expand and contract, moving air around allowing us to breathe. There are also mucus glands in the digestive tract. Mucus is a clear, watery, viscous solution that is created and secreted from the mucus membranes. It contains important substances including mucin, which is a mucopolysaccharide, a big fancy word that means that it has protein and carbohydrates in it. Mucus also contains salt and water and blood byproducts, including antibiotics which help protect us. There are millions of tiny glands producing this substance lining the respiratory and GI tracts. I would dare say that there is not a day that does not go by that someone comes into my office complaining about too much mucus. Mucus is very important. It is our first level of the bodys defense. It helps fight bacteria and pollutants and traps foreign bodies as they enter the body and washes them away. Mucus has multiple jobs including protection, lubrication, humidification, waterproofing and insulation. Just the fact that it traps little tiny microorganisms from entering the lining of the respiratory tract is very important. It acts like fly paper and once these microorganisms are trapped they are swept away by a support system of microcilia, which are these tiny hairs attached to the lining of the respiratory tract. The mucus is moved away like a conveyor belt from the nostril to the throat then swallowed, and in the lower respiratory tract there is a reverse upstream motion, so to speak, sweeping the mucus from the lungs into the throat to be swallowed and excreted through the stomach and the gastrointestinal tract. Mucus is affected by various things, including weather changes, dry climates, subzero temperatures. It keeps the bodys relative humidity at 75 percent to 80 percent. We produce about 2 quarts a day and also evaporate about 1 quart of water per day. When people have trouble with mucus, it is most commonly as a result of an infection, either bacterial or viral, which causes the tiny hairs to be impaired and not able to sweep the mucus away. This leads to congestion due to mucus standing still and not being swept away as it normally is. Drying effects of aging and medications can also cause mucus to accumulate. Think of mucus being the motor oil of the body a very important substance to have good quality of life. Simple measures to insure good health and normal mucus production and streaming into the digestive tract should include adequate hydration. Drinking lots of water, and supplementing with saline solution or saline sprays in the nose are very helpful, as well as avoiding situations that are dry and dusty and dirty. There are products available to dry up mucus, which can be counterproductive and there are also products that stimulate mucus the most common one is guaifenesin, which has been around for 50-plus years. So, as you can see, mucus is a very important product that we cannot live without. There are some temporary situations where it does seem to be annoying, but thankfully we have this important product to make us healthy and disease free, as it acts as our first line of defense.

Hampshire Blvd., in Citrus Springs, were presented with Certificates of Appreciation on Wednesday, Nov. 13, from the American Legion Riders Chapter 237, Beverly Hills. Corrines employees presented a fundraiser from which all proceeds including gratuities, totaling $1,000, were donated to support the 2013 American Legion Legacy Run. The 2013 Legacy Run raised funds to support the Legacy Scholarship Fund. Our fundraiser was a chance to show our appreciation for the tremendous sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform and to help make sure their children have a chance at an education, Corrine Smurawa said. The eighth annual American Legion Legacy Run 2013 began Aug. 18 at Indianapolis, Ind., the home city of the American Legion National Headquarters. Hundreds of American Legion Riders and other motorcyclists and passengers from around the country arrived in Houston, Texas, at American Legion Post 554 on the afternoon of Aug. 22. Chapter 237 members Fred Bernquist, Chuck Andrews and Jack Couch traveled almost 5,000 miles round-trip and presented an $1,100 donation from Chapter 237, along with the $1,000 donation from Corrines Hair & Nails to the American Legion national commander. As a consequence of Operation Iraqi Freedom and the global war on terror, many children of active-duty military personnel are now members of single-parent families. The donation made by Chapter 237 and the employees of Corrines Hair & Nails for the 2013 Legacy Run help to ensure that higher education will be a reality for these families. The scholarship fund benefits children of fallen soldiers who served after the 9/11 attacks, said American Legion Rider Chapter 237 Director John Roby. I dont know if you can say enough about people like the employees at Corrines Hair & Nails and their dedication to our service members and their families.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER3, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Hosea Ballou, a clergyman and theological writer who died in 1852, said, Education commences at the mothers knee, and every word spoken within the hearing of little children tends towards the formation of character. We bridge players were all weaned on our mothers or grandmothers knee to count losers in a suit contract. If she was a taskmaster, she would have told us also to count winners. Sometimes, the right direction is clearer when we check winners. In this deal, for example, South is in four spades. West cashes two top diamonds, then shifts to the heart king. How should declarer proceed? Norths redouble promised at least 10 points and denied four or more spades. East, with a definite preference among the unbid suits, was allowed to advance with two diamonds, even holding no points. From the logic of the auction, his hand had to be weak. Then, when North rebid three spades, South bid game, hoping for the best. Declarer has four losers: two hearts and two diamonds. He has only seven top tricks: five spades, one heart and one club. To make his contract, he must win four club tricks. But that might require taking three club finesses. And to do that, South needs three hand entries. After taking the third trick with his heart ace, he must take an immediate club finesse there is no time to lose. When the finesse wins, declarer cashes dummys spade queen, plays a spade to his king, and takes a second club finesse. After a spade to the ace, South takes the third club finesse and claims.

R MotherMotherRules Dear Annie: My husband and I are in our early 80s. We have four children. John and Susan are from my first marriage. They were very young when my first husband died and I remarried. I then had Jane and Alice. On my most recent birthday, Jane took my husband and me to our favorite restaurant. Jane also invited Alice, who lives in a rental on our property. (Susan lives in another state.) Alice posted on Facebook what a nice dinner we had. The next morning, Susan called Alice at 4 a.m., screaming, Why didnt you invite John? She then proceeded to call me and scream. I was shocked. I sent her an email later and asked why she was so upset. I love John, but he has made a mess of his life. He is a bully and has had confrontations with everyone in the family. We recently found out that John molested Alice when she was 5 years old. Alice is cordial when she is forced to be around him, but John has never admitted or apologized for his actions. My older kids are not terribly reliable. We named Jane executor of our estate because Susan is a heavy pot smoker and quick-tempered, and John cannot be trusted. It breaks my heart, but thats the way it is. Susan hasnt spoken to me in months. I now believe she and John have always been jealous of my younger daughters. Even though my husband raised them all, Susan has said hurtful things about him. She also says I never wanted her. This is completely untrue. I pine for Susan every day, but I refuse to phone her because of the awful things she says to me. My husband says we only have a few years left and we should enjoy them. What do you think? Heartbroken Dear Heartbroken: It is not unusual for children, even grown ones, to harbor resentments and jealousies against younger siblings, particularly when those siblings are from a different marriage. While your older kids could have benefited from family counseling at the time, theres not much you can do about that now. We suggest you send Susan a letter or an email, simply saying that you love her and always will, that you are sorry for the rift, and that you hope someday her anger will pass. Meanwhile, please have Alice contact RAINN (rainn.org) at 1-800-656HOPE. Being cordial to her molester may be harder on her than you think. Dear Annie: I was taught that RSVP stands for please respond. But these days, huge organizations (often charities) send massmailed invitations to hundreds of people, some of whom have little connection to the group and may live so far away that it would be extraordinary if they attended. I always write a note sending my regrets, because this has been ingrained in me. But I also worry that the functionary who receives my note wonders, Who is this anachronism living in the past century? Do the charities really expect the non-attendees to RSVP that they will not be there, or do they merely seek a head count? Dont Want To Be Old-Fashioned Dear Dont: They want a head count, but an RSVP saying no is equally appropriate. And we are certain they appreciate (and marvel at) an actual handwritten response by someone who is well-mannered enough to send one. Bless your heart. Dear Annie: Please tell Polly Positive that she and her husband should attend a cancer support group. After my husband was diagnosed with cancer, we joined two cancer support groups. We get a lot of information from the survivors and are able to give advice to the newly diagnosed. I cant stress strongly enough how important support groups are.
