Today, Ted Archambault and Jack Cissel are scheduled to be among those honored at the annual Pearl Harbor Day Survivors ceremony and lunch at Stumpknockers on the River, sponsored by the Fleet Reserve Association Branch/Unit 186. Archambault, of Homosassa, and Cissel, of Crystal River, are the remaining Citrus County survivors of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941. Arthur Fusco, formerly of Inverness, has moved away but is planning to attend the event, said Bob Huscher, co-organizer with his wife, Joan, of the survivors event. They have been doing this for more than 20 years, beginning with 19 survivors. In recent years theyve included survivors from Marion County. This year they expect six remaining survivors to attend. All are in their late 80s or early 90s. Archambault, who turns 95 this month, was 22 the day he received what he calls his baptism into war. He had joined the Marines in 1940 and was stationed in Cuba when he was ordered to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. He arrived Dec. 1, 1941. On that fateful Dec. 7 morning, Archambault woke up to the sounds of incoming Japanese war planes and the buglers call to arms. Amid sounds of explosions, he and his buddies scrambled to action. At one point, he saw the face of a Japanese pilot as the enemy plane flew overhead.

The Citrus County supervisor of elections conducts voterregistration drives in high schools, encourages early voting and stands ready to talk with anyone about the voting process. So shes not sure what to think of a directive issued last week by Secretary of State Ken Detzner that would make voting absentee less convenient than it is now. Detzner told elections supervisors that voters may no longer drop off absentee ballots at early voting sites. Detzner said he was citing state law that says the PATFAHERTY Staff writerBright House Networks has acknowledged a payment processing error has resulted in extra charges for some Florida customers. According to Bright House spokesman Joe Durkin, about 3,000 Florida customers who wrote personal checks to pay their Bright House Networks bills were affected. Paula Cooper of Citrus Springs was one of those residents. Her monthly Bright House bill of $140 was processed three times, resulting in a $420 charge the last thing she wanted to hear this holiday season. Durkin explained the affected customers mailed their checks to a drop box where they are retrieved, processed and deposited with Bank of America by a third-party vendor.

Associated PressALBANY, N.Y. An American fighter thats one of the few remaining still-airworthy planes to survive the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is being donated to an organization that flies World War II aircraft at living-history events across the United States. Robert Collings, executive director of the Stow, Mass.-based Collings Foundation, said that the purchase of the Curtiss P40B Warhawk from an aviation museum in England was completed this week. The plane will be disassembled and shipped to the United States, where it eventually will fly over Buffalo and other cities, with plans to participate in the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack in 2016, he said. The history that comes with it is pretty special, Collings said Friday, the day before the 72nd anniversary of the surprise attack in Hawaii that launched the U.S. into the Second World War. It was obvious that we needed to get this airplane back to America. After the attack, which came in two waves, those who were able, helped pull burning people out of the water. He said the hospitals didnt have enough beds for all the wounded and they had to lay people on the lawn. All these years later, he still remembers. He told the Chronicle in 2011, You never know the horrors of war until youre in it. Ive forgotten names and some details, but something like that you dont forget. Those on the ship who had survived the explosion were faced with a choice: burn to death or jump in the burning ocean and hope to survive. On the Arizona alone they lost almost 1,200, all in about five minutes. Jack Cissel, 91, was a 19-year-old private first class in the Army, a radar operator assigned to the E Battery, 64th Coast Artillery Division. We knew something was coming, something was going to happen, he recalled. We were issued 10 rounds of ammunition and a gas mask that we had to carry with us at all times. On that Sunday morning, Cissel was at his post at the radar station at the tip of Pearl City Peninsula, an elevated position only yards away from the 100 battleships, destroyers, cruisers and service ships in the harbor. Just a few minutes before 8 a.m., swarms of Japanese aircraft appeared and began to strafe targets and drop bombs and torpedoes. There was mass confusion amid huge black clouds of smoke and fire. We didnt know who they were; we were just a bunch of kids, Cissel told the Chroniclein 2007. We didnt know anything. All you could do was shoot your 10 rounds of ammunition; then it was total helplessness. With his pot helmet as his only protection, he fired at the enemy planes overhead, watching powerlessly as Navy battleships in Pearl Harbor were destroyed. He recalled listening to the explosions and seeing injured men fall overboard into the water and watching the West Virginia battleship get hit repeatedly. Earlier this week Cissel said he looks forward to being with other survivors at the annual event. Ill go every year that I can, he said.A2SATURDAY, DECEMBER7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/NATION 000GUOD NEW OFFICE LOCATION Announces the NEW OFFICE LOCATION NEW OFFICE LOCATION of his new practice Call 228-4975 Comprehensive foot and ankle care for the entire family.

In Washington, AP editor William Peacock and staff got word of the attack from President Franklin D. Roosevelts press secretary. In the language and style used by journalists of his era, including the use of a disparaging word to describe the Japanese that was in common use, Peacock dictated the details of the announcement. FLASH WASHINGTON White House says Japs attack Pearl Harbor. BULLETIN WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 (AP) President Roosevelt said in a statement today that the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, from the air. The attack of the Japanese also was made on all naval and military activities on the island of Oahu. The presidents brief statement was read to reporters by Stephen Early, presidential secretary. No further details were given immediately. At the time of the White House announcement, the Japanese ambassadors, Kichisaburo Nomura and Saburo Kurusu, were at the State Department. FLASH WASHINGTON Second air attack reported on Army and Navy bases in Manila. # First lead Japanese WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 (AP) Japanese air attacks on the American naval stronghold at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and on defense facilities at Manila were announced today by the White House. -2Only this terse announcement came from President Roosevelt immediately, but with it there could be no doubt that the Far Eastern situation had at last exploded, that the United States was at war, and that the conflict which began in Europe was spreading over the entire world. This disclosure had been accepted generally as an indication this country had all but given up hope that AmericanJapanese difficulties, arising from Japans aggression in the Far East, could be resolved by ordinary diplomatic procedure. # BULLETIN Second lead Japanese WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 (AP) Japanese airplanes today attacked American defense bases at Hawaii and Manila, and President Roosevelt ordered the Army and Navy to carry out undisclosed orders prepared for the defense of the United States. Announcing the presidents action for the protection of American territory, Presidential Secretary Stephen Early declared that so far as is known now the attacks were made wholly without warning when both nations were at peace and were delivered within an hour or so of the time that the Japanese ambassador had gone to the State Department to hand to the secretary of state Japans reply to the secretarys memo of the 26th. # Associated Press The battleship USS Arizona sinks on Dec. 7, 1941, during a Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

MiamiBaby born on side of expresswayLittle Ana Veronica couldnt wait on rush-hour traffic. So she was born Thursday afternoon in the backseat of a black Cadillac on the side of the Dolphin Expressway during rush hour in Miami. The baby was in a hurry to come out, Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Joe Sanchez told The Miami Herald Mother Ana Delia Bracho was visiting South Florida from Venezuela and wasnt due for another month. But she went into labor while traveling on the expressway around 5 p.m. The driver of the car, Michael Domenico, pulled onto an eastbound exit ramp and called 911. A MiamiDade Fire Rescue Station 40 crew and Trooper Aliek Sierra rushed to the scene. Sanchez said there was little the trooper could do but assist in the delivery. A relative cut the cord and the 5-pound, 1-ounce baby and her mother were taken to South Miami Hospital, where officials said they are recovering. From staff and wire reports From theCAPITAL Court reverses mans conviction in murder of fatherAn appeals court Friday ordered a new trial for a man convicted in the shotgun slaying of his father in 2010 in Hernando County, ruling that police violated the mans right to remain silent. Stephen Horne, now 22, was convicted of fatally shooting his father, Ivan. But a three-judge panel of the 5th District Court of Appeal found that detectives gained a confession from Horne after he had invoked his constitutional right to remain silent. We conclude that the police did not scrupulously honor Hornes unambiguous and unequivocal assertion of his right to silence and to stop the interrogation,' the appeals court ruled. Therefore, the trial court erred in denying Hornes motion to suppress. The ruling summarizes the confession, saying Horne considered his father to be a useless drug addict whom he hated because he long ago abandoned Horne and his mother. It also said that Horne repeatedly shot his father with a shotgun and then took $640 and drugs from the pockets of the slain man, splitting the money and drugs with an accomplice. Horne has been serving a life sentence at Madison Correctional Institution.Secularists hang Bill of Rights nativity bannerThe Madison, Wis.-based Freedom From Religion Foundation has brought in a seasonal display for the firstfloor rotunda of the Florida Capitol, days after the Florida Prayer Network put up a privately funded nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus Christ. The foundation, a non-profit that advocates for non-theists and promotes the separation of church and state, proclaimed its Bill of Rights nativity banner as a counter to the nativity scene. We dont mind sharing the season with Christians, but we dont like this pretense that its all about the birth of a Christian God, FFRF CoPresident Annie Laurie Gaylor said in a release. Wed vastly prefer to keep religion and irreligion out of the seat of state government. The Capitol ought be above the fray of religious divisiveness. But if public officials unwisely decide to permit religious public forums, then there must be room at the inn for nonbelievers. The foundations banner states: At this season of the Winter Solstice, we celebrate the Birth of the Unconquered Sun the TRUE reason for the season. On Tuesday, the Florida Prayer Network put up the first nativity display in modern history in the Capitol. Pam Olsen, president of the Florida Prayer Network, said the display does not reflect a state-sponsored religion. She also noted that a Jewish menorah is displayed nearby.From wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Correction The Chronicle printed the incorrect phone number for the U.S. Postal Inspection Service office in Tampa in Fridays paper.

Burglary suspect nabbed in woods A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerNearly a dozen Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputies and K-9s converged on woods near Crystal River early Friday morning to nab a burglary suspect. And, it was a sighting of the suspect by someone alerted by the CodeRED public notification system that ultimately led to the arrest of the 33-year-old man, according to Sgt. Steve Conley. Zachary Linville of Webster was arrested at 7:48 a.m. Friday and is facing charges of burglary while armed, grand theft, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, criminal mischief, burglary of a vehicle and resisting arrest. His bond is $118,000. According to Conley, Linville was at a residence on Dublin Street when the alarm in the home went off. The alarm company contacted the owner, who was away. The owner, in turn, alerted his brother, who lives near the home, asking him to check his residence. Conley said when the brother arrived at the residence he startled Linville, who took off running into the woods near the residence. Linville also reportedly dropped at least six long guns he had wrapped in a blanket, according to Conley. Sheriffs deputies arrived on the scene at 5:45 a.m. and began the search for Linville. Nearly two hours later, Conley said he encountered a man Linville reportedly had flagged down on a road for a ride. When the man asked if he (Linville) was the man deputies were searching for, saying he had been alerted via CodeRED, the man fled. CodeRED is a Citrus County Sheriffs Office emergency management alert system which lets residents know via phone calls about all kinds of emergencies. He pointed to the area of the woods where he fled and it was not even five minutes later, K-9 caught up with him, Conley said. Linville reportedly suffered some abrasions during the K-9 encounter, but was treated at the scene. I am very impressed with the work of everybody and the teamwork. It goes to show how dedicated everybody is about not only making sure we caught the suspect, but for the safety of the citizens, Conley said. Linville was transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline.com. Zachary Linville Catching snowflakes in Florida MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleFour-year-old Madalyn Ringle cups her hands to catch artificial snow flurries Friday evening during the Crystal River Christmas Tree Lighting Festival at Little Springs Park behind City Hall. The festival included bounce houses, horseback rides, face painting, live music, train rides, a puppet show and complimentary light refreshments for the children of cookies, punch and hot chocolate served by the Pilot Club of Crystal River. Crystal River Mayor Jim Farley recited A Visit from St. Nicholas prior to Santas arrival on a fire truck. The hosts for the three-hour festival were the city and Pilot Club of Crystal River. The event was sponsored by the Citrus County Chronicle. City stops allowing backyard chickens Associated PressDEBARY The father of an autistic boy says hell be contacting his attorney after the DeBary City Council voted to end a pilot program that allows residents to keep chickens in their backyards. Councilmembers ended the program with a 3-2 vote Wednesday. But Joseph Hart vowed to fight for the right to keep the chickens that his 3-year-old son J.J. calls ducks. Hart credited the council for starting the pilot program last year and told them his son had made significant progress since they got the chickens, which a physician recommended to help with the boys therapy. Its made a tremendous difference in J.J.s life, Hart said. His vocabulary has gone from ducks to that of a normal kid his age. The Daytona Beach News-Journalreported Councilmember Chris Carson said hed like to keep the program going for the boy. But he voted to end the pilot program, saying he didnt want to create opportunities for people to turn chickens and their eggs into a business. I dont support a program that has a door open to take advantage for commercial purposes, he said. I support J.J. Im all about the children. Its starting to become something else. The program will end on Dec. 31. Resident Leigh Corry also has chickens in her yard. The city had previously pursued a codeenforcement case against her for keeping the chickens. Chickens are really great, she said. Everyone really loves them. Her neighbor, Barry Maguire, told the council he opposes the program. From a real-estate perspective, this would undoubtedly cost some nice, hard, cold equity, he said. Some councilmembers said they werent sure there was a real desire among residents to have chickens in their yards. But Mayor Bob Garcia, who supported extending the pilot program, disagreed. He said one resident noted that people didnt want to invest in getting a permit and a legal chicken coop if they werent sure the law would be made permanent. People are not gonna step forward and build (a coop) only then to have to tear it down because they cant have it any longer, he said.

Supervisors should not solicit return of absentee ballots at any place other than a supervisors office Detzner wrote. A supervisor of elections cannot accept delivery of a marketed absentee ballot anywhere other than his or her office Supervisors of elections statewide are complaining about the directive, saying it will hurt voter participation in their counties. Gill said in the 2012 presidential election, 885 people cast absentee ballots at Citrus Countys four early voting sites. Its very successful, she said. People love it. They love having options. I love being able to give the option. A certified poll clerk accepts the ballot and secures it. All absentee ballots are transported to the elections office each day, where they are locked up until theyre counted on election night. Gill said the issue is of an immediate concern in Pinellas County, which has a special congressional Republican primary in January and election in March. Pinellas Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark wrote to Detzner that the voters in her county cast absentee ballots not only at early voting sites, but also numerous drop box locations. Clark said the sites are secure and do not violate state law. She said she would continue accepting absentee ballots at those sites. Detzners response indicated he would permit the absentee ballot drop-off in Pinellas County as Clark outlined. But it still leaves the states other supervisors, such as Gill, wondering whether the rule will stay in place for the 2014 primaries and election. Theres been a tremendous amount of push-back on it, she said. Maybe we need to come to someplace in the middle. Gill said one local candidate has already asked for clarification on the absentee ballot issue. Gill said her advice is to take a wait-and-see approach. The voters like it, she said. I think its very safe and I hope we can continue on with it.Contact reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. the checks were processed up to three times each, he said. The vendor caught the error and Bright House and the bank are working together to reverse the process. He said the affected customers do not need to take any action. The money will be returned to their accounts, possibly by the end of this week. He said Bright House will also take care of customers who may incur insufficient funds charges due to this mistake. Unfortunately, there is never a good time for this and with the holidays its added stress, Durkin said. We apologize for that. He added if anyone sees multiple debits on their account for Bright House that are not resolved, they should contact their bank or Bright House Networks. Ive been a little upset, said Cooper, who spoke with Bright House. It could snowball; people who dont bank online might not know it happened right away. I didnt need to have an extra $280 out of my account, especially around the holidays. Cooper also expressed concern as to why it would take so long when the check clearing error happened on Dec. 3.

BALLOTSContinued from Page A1 BILLSContinued from Page A1 Officials spot 20 whales closer to shore Associated PressEVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK Twenty whales believed to be part of a pod found stranded in the Everglades this week were spotted Friday afternoon moving closer toward shore, a sign they may be reversing their earlier, positive course, wildlife officials said. The whales were about five nautical miles from the coast, one mile closer than Thursday. I am definitely concerned to hear about their behavior, that they are less organized, that they seem to be swimming very slowly, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration stranding coordinator Blair Mase told reporters late Thursday afternoon. They may have gotten to the point where they are exhausted. Earlier Friday, officials had been hopeful the whales were headed back to the deeper, colder waters that form their natural habitat about 20 miles out to sea. On Thursday, a Coast Guard helicopter spotted three pods of about 35 whales that had moved six miles offshore and into water about 18 feet deep. They could dive, they were swimming, and they had a straight shot to their home range, Mase said of the shortfinned pilot whales. And they didnt take it. Mase said the whales apparent movement inshore raises concerns something may be preventing them from going further out to sea, such as an illness. Eleven of the 51 whales spotted by a fishing guide Tuesday have died. Six were found dead Wednesday morning and four were euthanized. Another died Thursday. Necropsies on the deceased whales did not reveal any significant initial findings, though they did have empty stomachs, indicating their health may have been compromised. Scientists were awaiting the results of pathology tests to see whether there was any evidence of disease. According to NOAA, pilot whales have been known to carry the morbillivirus, which can cause skin lesions, pneumonia, brain and other infections. A Coast Guard flyover Friday morning spotted only seven whales swimming in 12 to 14 feet of water. Two others that appeared to be closer to shore turned out to be dolphins, Mase said. The larger group of whales could not be located. But by Friday afternoon, Mase said the seven whales had joined a larger group of 20 heading south and inshore, in about 10 to 12 feet of water. There is no land in the immediate vicinity for them to beach themselves, she said. On Wednesday, wildlife workers formed a semi-circle around the whales and used anchor chains to bang against their boats and try to herd the whales out of the shallow waters near the remote Everglades beach where they were found. Mase said it was unlikely they would move forward with herding efforts again. If theyre trying to come inshore because thats their natural instinct, and were pushing them out, were getting them more and more tired, she said. At some point, We have to stand back and let nature take its course, she said. From the start, NOAA and National Park Service officials have said the short-finned pilot whales faced significant hurdles. To get to deeper waters they faced a series of sandbanks, tributaries and patches of shallow water that Mase said were almost like a maze. Wildlife volunteers were surprised when they arrived at the stranding site Thursday and found the whales had managed to move six miles offshore on their own. Quite the surprise, Donna Buckley, a National Park Service volunteer said. Associated PressOfficials in boats monitor the scene Wednesday where dozens of pilot whales are stranded in shallow water in a remote area of Florida's Everglades National Park.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Happy or sad? Content or bored? And how many times did you smile yesterday? A panel of experts thinks Uncle Sam should be more in touch with our feelings. By gauging happiness, thered be more to consider than cold hard cash when deciding matters that affect daily lives, according to a report this week from the National Academy of Sciences, which advises the government. The panel of economists, psychologists and other experts assembled by the academy recommended that federal statistics and surveys, which normally deal with income, spending, health and housing, include a few extra questions on happiness. You want to know how people are doing? said panel chairman Arthur Stone, a professor of psychology at New Yorks Stony Brook University. One of things you may want to do is ask them. Asking how people feel can be as important as how much they are spending, Stone said. For example, economists have something they call the misery index which adds the unemployment and inflation rates, but doesnt include how people feel. If you want to know misery, the question to ask is how much suffering is going on, he said. The panel suggests a series of questions to measure daily happiness and general well-being, asking how often you smiled, were stressed, laughed or were in pain. Example questions ranged from a simple yesno Yesterday, did you spend time with friends or family? to a more complex 1-10 rating for Overall, how satisfied are you with your life nowadays? Over the past decade, these types of questions have shown to be valid scientifically, said Carol Graham, a Brookings Institution economist who was on the panel. The report said the answers can help governments shape policy on basic benefits, such as retirement age and pensions, care for the chronic and terminally ill, unemployment and working conditions. It cited a study by one of the Nobel Prize-winning panelists that showed peoples feelings about commuting problems helped officials decided whether or not to create commuter toll lanes on highways. In terms of collecting happiness data, the United States government is a bit of a laggard behind other industrial nations, said John Helliwell, an economist who co-directs an institute that studies wellbeing at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. In one of the few surveys where the government does ask, were a pretty happy nation. Last year, about 87 percent of Americans considered themselves very happy or pretty happy. But were far behind No. 1 Denmark, a host of northern European countries, Canada, Israel and Mexico. The United States ranked 17th in a world happiness ranking report directed by Helliwell, which was based on international surveys and came out in September. When governments and academics study happiness they find that money isnt everything. Many of the richest countries, including the United States, werent in the Top 10 in self-reported happiness in the report. Having no money is terrible for everything, said Graham, author of several books on the economics and measuring of happiness. But after people make a comfortable amount of money, it doesnt add too much to happiness, she said.

Icy storm slams Southwest Associated PressDALLAS Freezing rain and stinging winds slammed the Southwest Friday and made a strangely blank landscape out of normally sundrenched North Texas: mostly empty highways covered in a sometimes impassable frost, closed schools and businesses, and millions of residents hunkered down for icy conditions expected to last through the weekend. Earlier this week, many in Texas were basking in spring-like temperatures that hit the 80s. But by Thursday, Texas was facing the same wintry blast that has slammed much of the U.S., bringing frigid temperatures, ice and snow. The weather forced the cancellation of Sundays Dallas Marathon, which was expected to draw 25,000 runners, some of whom had trained for months. A quarter of a million customers in North Texas were left without power, and many businesses told employees to stay home to avoid the slick roads. Rob Yates, 44, of the Dallas suburb of Rowlett, had trained for four months to participate in the halfmarathon Sunday his first time competing at that distance. His wife and three children were going to attend the race to volunteer and cheer him on, he said. Now, Ill probably be catching up on some work, Yates said, laughing. Yates spent Friday at home with his children, who were outside pulling off icicles and wishing more snow had fallen. But Yates, originally from near Manchester, England, said he stayed inside with his wife. Its kind of unusual weather for Dallas, so theyre just having fun with it, Yates said. Me and my wife adults are not particularly impressed with it. Fridays storm stretched from South Texas, where anxious residents bagged outdoor plants to protect them from the cold, through the Midwest and Ohio Valley and up into northern New England and the Canadian Maritimes. In California, four people died of hypothermia in the San Francisco Bay Area as the region dealt with freezing temperatures, according to the Santa Clara County coroners office. Rosie Dominguez, a spokeswoman for the office, confirmed the deaths and their cause but provided no further information. Dominguez referred questions to a county spokeswoman, who did not immediately return a phone call Friday afternoon. Associated PressA pedestrian walks down the street Thursday after heavy snowfall moved through the region in Carbondale, Ill. A big chunk of the U.S. is getting a blast of frigid temperatures, sleet, snow and ice. Experts urge feds to measure happiness Associated PressPeople laugh as they take part in a group exercise during a laughter yoga class in June in St. Albans, England.

Interestrates 000GUA6 Stock market jumps after strong jobs report Associated PressNEW YORK Good news was finally good news for the stock market on Friday. Stocks rose sharply after the government reported a fourth straight month of solid U.S. job gains, the latest encouraging sign for the economy. The strengthening job market focused investors on the nations improving economy instead of concerns about the Federal Reserves stimulus, snapping a five-day losing streak for stocks. Stocks had been falling this week after a string of positive economic reports made investors worry that the Fed would soon pull back on its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases, which have kept long-term interest rates low and supported the stock market. Now that hiring is showing consistent strength, investors seem to be letting go of their worry that the economy isnt ready for the Fed to start weaning the U.S. off that stimulus. The jobs report was outstanding, said Randy Frederick, a director of trading and derivatives at Charles Schwab. Its refreshing to see the markets react positively, because weve been in a mode for so long of good news is bad news. Employers added 203,000 jobs last month after adding 200,000 in October, the Labor Department announced before the U.S. stock market opened on Friday. Novembers job gain helped lower the unemployment rate to 7 percent from 7.3 percent in October. Stocks jumped at the open and moved higher throughout the day. The Dow Jones industrial average rose by as much as 200 points in early afternoon trading before easing back slightly before the close. Sears to spin off Lands End businessHOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. Sears Holdings Corp. said Friday that it will spin off its Lands End clothing business as a separate company by distributing stock to the retailers shareholders. Its the latest move by the struggling retailer to turn around its results as it faces wider losses and increasingly displeased investors.FDA approves breakthrough hepatitis C drugWASHINGTON Gilead Sciences Inc. says the federal government has approved its highly anticipated hepatitis C drug that is expected to offer a faster cure to millions of people infected with the liver-destroying virus. The Food and Drug Administration approved the pill Sovaldi as a daily treatment in combination with older drugs to treat the major forms of hepatitis C. Current treatments for hepatitis C can take up to a year of therapy and only cure three out of four patients. Sovaldi is a daily pill that cures roughly 90 percent of patients in just 12 weeks, according to company studies. The approval comes as the federal government urges baby boomers to get tested for the disease. Apple wants Samsung to pay $22M for legal billsSAN JOSE, Calif. Apple wants Samsung Electronics to pay $22 million of the legal bills that the iPhone and iPad maker has rung up so far defending its mobile device patents in a courtroom battle. The money sought in documents filed Thursday would be in addition to the $930 million in damages that juries decided Samsung owes Apple Inc. after hearing evidence of patent infringement in two separate trials held in a San Jose, Calif., federal court during the past 15 months. The latest verdict was handed down last month. Apple is asking U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh to order Samsung to pay $15.7 million in attorney fees. That would cover less than onethird of the more than $60 million that Apple says it owes its lawyers in the case. Apple also wants Samsung to reimburse its lawyers for $6.2 million in various expenses. A Jan. 30 hearing has been scheduled to examine Apples requests. Lawyers for both Apple and Samsung Electronics Co. figure to make millions of dollars more from the skirmishing between the leading makers of smartphones.

Craze for coveted craft brews creates black market Associated PressMONTPELIER, Vt. Fancy a pint of Pliny the Elder or Heady Topper double India pale ales, but cant find it in your neighborhood? Get out your wallet. As craft brews gain an intense following, a black market bloomed in which opportunists sell for hundreds of dollars top-rated beers that are hard to find, in short supply, expensive or illegal to ship. In Vermont, a Burlington woman was charged recently with selling five cases of the popular Heady Topper beer for $825 on Craigslist, which brought about mixed feelings for its brewer. Its a compliment in an odd way, said Jen Kimmich, owner of The Alchemist brewery in Waterbury, which produces Heady Topper. The hoppy concoction, which retails for $3 a can and $72 a case, was recently ranked No. 1 by Beer Advocate magazine out of the top 250 beers in the world. But at the same time, she added, we dont want to see the consumer being cheated by paying too much and getting a product that hasnt been taken care of properly. The beer is so popular that The Alchemist recently closed its retail shop in Waterbury, Vt., to appease neighbors concerned about traffic. In the weeks since, a half a dozen posts have appeared on Craigslist including from southern California, Chicago, and Boston clamoring for the stuff. Craigslist did not respond to a message seeking comment. Beer geeks often trade coveted craft brews with no money changing hands to get hard-to-find beers that may only be sold in certain states or countries, in limited amounts or are only in draft form. To get them might require a beer mule, who will transport the brews to the consumer, or someone who will buy them from the brewery and ship them, said Joe Tucker, executive director of the RateBeer website.

OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2013 Stay awake Citrus CountyCitrus County, it is time to wake up. We had a small awakening a few months back when for a brief moment, we accidentally voted a glimmer of hope into the local government a common sense commissioner who knows right from wrong. Scott Adams, along with others, knows when something is wrong. We voted him in with the hope of getting something done in the voters best interest. He is trying to do just that by attempting to give us true representation. This is not easy. It shows by his actions of not going the customary way of spending the problems away as county bureaucracy is accustomed to with our money. Have we forgotten already? Do we take a second to ask why? Do we ask if there is a better way? I see it as the commissioners and the rest of our ever growing bigger local government ensuring themselves plenty of tax dollars to continue to control the citizenry. I cannot help but believe that our elected and appointed bureaucracy know better, but as government will, prefer to serve themselves with no explanation or no reason. Except for one. Mr Adams seems to be alone, but he is not. There are many like myself who recognize we are being bullied into submission by government and we have a hope in Scott Adams. Please, we must try to awaken from the government induced coma and recognize that for whatever reason there is the hope of someone on the inside for a change with better intentions for we the people. Government, as written in our Constitution, was to be for the people, has become against the people. Todays government (for the most part) is against the people. Government has become a big enterprise that takes from its people to make itself bigger and more powerful no matter how many unconstitutional laws it twists and breaks with the inane laws and rules it creates.C.W. Krantz Floral City For a guy whose presidency was supposed to be on life support, Barack Obama has certainly had a productive couple of weeks. With his poll numbers sinking toward George W. Bush territory 53 percent in a recent CNN survey said hes not a strong or decisive leader Obama took bold action on two issues that dramatized the power of the presidency. One was about getting Congress to act, the other about preventing World War III. But first, a few words about Obamas political fortunes: With reports surfacing about great improvements in the healthcare.gov websites performance, what many have described as the nadir of Obamas presidency may prove a short-term phenomenon. Stone partisans aside, Americans want their presidents to succeed. With strong majorities saying they continue to like Obama personally, and to believe that he cares about people like them, he retains a reservoir of good will to sustain him until the positive effects of the Affordable Care Act become clearer. However, if people doubt that Obama has the wherewithal to manage the gigantic enterprise that is the federal government, well no wonder. Like many intellectuals and nearly all writers his Dreams from My Father is a real book, not a ghostwritten campaign bio Obama confuses saying something with doing something. He also has a terrible time admitting error another occupational trait, I assure you. His failure to make sure that somebody with real-world management skills supervised the healthcare.gov rollout is the most incomprehensible blunder of his presidency. Had the site run properly, Obamas ballyhooed lie about people keeping their insurance coverage more of an opportunistic campaign exaggeration, actually wouldnt have caused a great ruckus, because most people whose insurance companies dumped them would have been mollified to learn that theyre getting a better deal. People took Obamas falsehood personally, unlike, say, George W. Bushs deceptive assurances that hed received no warning about 9/11, or his phony certitude about Saddam Husseins imaginary WMDs. Thats because nothing touches them more directly than health insurance. (Although talking about botched White House initiatives, how about the bleeping Iraq War?) Also, because its personal, theyre apt to forgive Obama when the law starts working for them. But slowly, one at a time, like the way they forgave Bill Clinton. Most also see that if Obama has weaknesses, he also has formidable strengths. Agreeing with Sen. Harry Reid to do away with Senate rules allowing Republicans to filibuster White House appointees took real political courage. Will Republicans retaliate when they get the chance? Probably. And that would be worse than total congressional paralysis how? Most people dont especially give a hoot about the hallowed traditions of the U.S. Senate, so if modifying the filibuster rule helps Congress get something done, theyre OK with it. The Senates an intrinsically conservative institution anyway what with thinly populated red states like Wyoming and Alaska having as much power as New York and California so its not as if majority rule there threatens the foundations of the republic. Meanwhile, Washington Monthlys Martin Longman noticed that even if it did nothing else, enhancing the presidents power to make executive appointments also gives him a freer hand to remove underperforming cabinet members like Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Not that its Obamas practice to seek scapegoats, but his seeming passivity during the healthcare.gov fiasco hasnt helped him, either. You can bet President Trump would have fired somebody! Longman also suspects that the GOPs muted response to the Senate rule change Minority Leader Mitch McConnell charged only that Democrats wanted to distract people from Obamacare could indicate that the Republicans are truly on another one of their Moby Dick adventures, like Whitewater, like the White House Travel Office, like Vince Foster, like laffaire Lewinsky, like Saddams WMD, like Fast and Furious, like Solyndra, like the New Black Panther Party, like Benghazi, and like the most recent government shutdown. Its a dumb strategy: If Obamacare fails, it fails. If not, what have they got? This brings us to the remarkable diplomatic breakthrough with Iran: potentially the Middle Eastern equivalent of the fall of the Berlin Wall. If youve heeded Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and his chorus of American neoconservatives, Iran has been three months away from acquiring nuclear weapons for the past 20 years. And yet, despite the odiousness of its theocratic regime, this still hasnt happened. Under its new president, Iran has agreed to shut down the centrifuges and submit to inspections in exchange for reduced sanctions. The Netanyahu chorus invokes Chamberlain at Munich, basically the only song they know how to sing. But President Obama grasps one big thing: The U.S. and its allies are exponentially more powerful than Iran. Worst case, he gets embarrassed and Iran goes back to furtively building nukes except more isolated now than ever. If Obamas willing to risk it, then we should be, too.Arkansas Times columnist Gene Lyons is a National Magazine Award winner and co-author of The Hunting of the President (St. Martins Press, 2000).

The next day, within an hour of President Roosevelts Day of Infamy speech, Congress declared war on Japan. The United States had been thrust into World War II, a war which would give rise to another term the Greatest Generation. This generation, which came of age during the Great Depression, faced an even greater challenge in defeating the Axis powers. Today, only a handful of the Greatest Generation are still with us today, and even fewer of those who survived the attack on Pearl Harbor. Citrus County is fortunate to have two survivors of Pearl Harbor Day Ted Archambault and Jack Cissel. Each year, the Fleet Reserve Association Branch/Unit 186 hosts a luncheon for these great Americans to honor them for their service to our country. We would urge you today to take a moment to remember those who lost their lives 72 years ago and to consider the impact the Greatest Generation has had on our lives today. The victory over Japan, Germany and Italy in World War II installed the United States as a world power. Today, the rest of the world still looks to us for leadership and much of that is a credit to that generation. THE ISSUE:Pearl Harbor Day.OUR OPINION:Salute to the Greatest Generation.

I would like to point out that there is another treatment available for prostate cancer that was not covered in any of the articles of that day proton therapy. Proton therapy is similar to radiation therapy, but uses beamed protons instead of beamed X-rays, with the resulting collateral damage being less due to the protons dispersing their energy at the targeted location instead of passing completely through the body. But rather than discussing the physics involved, I really want to state that any man diagnosed with prostate cancer should take the time and effort to explore all the treatment options open to them. On one hand, all the current available treatments seem to have credible cure rates as far at the cancer itself is concerned. On the other hand, none of them can guarantee a successful outcome with no side effects, i.e. impotence or incontinence. And there is no second chance. Once you select a treatment option, you are going to live with the results for the rest of your life. It is extremely important to gather as much information as possible before making that decision. I have observed that doctors will tend to promote treatments that they have a selfinterest in and minimize the potential problems. Discussions with other men who have experienced each treatment gives valuable insight into what you might expect as an outcome. It was this process that led me to discover proton therapy. In order to provide proton therapy treatment you need a $100 million-plus treatment center, making it too expensive to be provided locally. There are currently 11 such centers in the U.S., with another nine either under construction or in the planning stage. They are located in such prestigious institutions as the MD Anderson Cancer center in Houston, Mass General Hospital in Boston and the University of Floridas Medical center in Jacksonville. The first treatment facility was opened in 1991 by Loma Linda University in California. The University of Floridas Proton Therapy Institute (UFPTI) was opened in 2006 and to date has treated more than 3,300 men for prostate cancer, with current cure rates of 99 percent for men diagnosed with low-risk cancer and 97 percent for those with intermediate risk. These treatments are FDA and Medicare approved. Why am writing this? It has been my experience that unless some other prostate cancer veteran tells you about proton therapy, you wont hear about it. Why should you consider it? Because it works with an outcome that minimizes the potential bad side effects that can occur with prostate cancer treatment. How do I know this? Because Ive been through it, and I feel no different today than I did two years ago before I heard the words youve got prostate cancer. My PSA has gone from 5.7 before treatment to 1.3 today and is still heading down, and I feel great. So, if you or someone you know is dealing with prostate cancer, do some research on proton therapy. Information is available online at various website such as www.protontherapy.org, www.floridaproton. com, or www.protonbob.com. If you contact the UFPTI, they will send you a list of former patients that you can call or email for information. You owe it to yourself to explore all your available options.Howard Geer Crystal RiverProud to be a tea party patriotI consider myself a tea party patriot and I make no apologies for it. This morning, I read in the letters to the editor that some people in this community think people like me are destroying America. This comes as a surprise to me because at no time have I ever considered myself a radical who is intent on destroying this country. Indeed, on at least three occasions I have sworn an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The first time was when I became a naturalized citizen in 1964. The second time was when I became employed by the U.S. Department of Commerce in 1974, and then again in 1981, when I became an employee of Miami-Dade County government. I have served my country and my local community with honor and distinction. I served in the way that I was taught in 11th-grade American history class and in seventhgrade civics (the only two classes I ever really paid attention to while in grade school). The lesson I remember the most in those classes was that in this country, elected officials are supposed to be the servants of the people, not the other way around. That is why I am totally dismayed by the statement made by Kathy Dobronyi in a letter to the editor, which claims that the tea party is intent on destroying America with our radical, ultra-conservative behavior. While it is true that back in 1776 that may have been a radical concept of the time, I want to believe that after 230 years or so, that way of thinking had become fairly mainstream. I could never have expected that at this late stage of my life, I would be accused by someone of being a radical subversive who wants to destroy America. Dobryonyl, I can assure you that I am not some nutcase who goes around wearing a triangular hat and carrying a smoothbore musket at my side. I am a tea party patriot, and I say that without any trepidation or regret. I dont like when other people label me, because doing so oversimplifies who I am and what I do. I dont like to do it to others because it is inherently unfair to them. So I will resist the temptation to label you and to make baseless accusations about your love of your country. I truly believe that you probably love this country as much as I do. But to make it easy for you to understand, I will let you call me a tea party member, even though I pay no dues, and I dont belong to any organized group. I am merely one of millions of Americans who believe that our great nation is based on the simple premise the government was created by the people and for the people. I am one who believes that elected officials should be servants to the public, and not the other way around. I also believe that elected officials should be responsible stewards of the peoples money. At what point did this way of thinking become radical and subversive? Ms. Dobryonyl, I can assure you I have no intention of destroying America. My only intent is to hold our elected officials accountable for what they do. That is what our nation is based on, and that is the oath that I have pledged to uphold on a number of occasions. For you see I take my oaths very seriously.Eloy Nuez Inverness

In eagles vs. energy, wind winsWASHINGTON Under pressure from the windpower industry, the Obama administration said Friday it will allow companies to kill or injure eagles without the fear of prosecution for up to three decades. The new rule is designed to address environmental consequences that stand in the way of the nations wind energy rush: the dozens of bald and golden eagles being killed each year by the giant, spinning blades of wind turbines. The new rule will provide legal protection for the lifespan of wind farms and other projects if companies obtain permits and make efforts to avoid killing protected birds. Companies would have to take additional measures if they killed or injured more eagles than they had estimated they would, or if new information suggested that eagle populations were being affected. The permits would be reviewed every five years, and companies would have to submit reports of how many eagles they killed.Doctor used razor in suicide attemptSALT LAKE CITY A defense attorney is crediting jailers with saving the life of a Utah doctor who tried to kill himself after he was recently convicted of leaving his heavily drugged wife to die in a bathtub to carry on an affair with another woman.

Thousands in UK face another day of floodingLONDON Hundreds of people in Britain mopped up flooded homes on Friday after a powerful storm that scoured northern Europe with hurricane-force gusts kicked up the biggest tidal surge in 60 years, swamping stretches of shoreline. The rising seas prompted evacuations along the eastern English coast, with 1,400 properties flooded and at least a half-dozen communities at great risk of exceptionally high tides and large waves. Accidents linked to the storm that roared across Europe Thursday have killed at least eight people, from Britain to Sweden, Denmark and Poland. Scores of flights were canceledat airports in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany and Poland. More than 1,000 people spent the night at Copenhagen airport where 200 flights were canceled Thursday and about 70 Friday.Pilot in crash may have had fake licenseMOSCOW The Russian pilot who sent a Boeing 737 into a near-vertical dive, killing all 50 people on board, might have had a fake license, Russian investigators said Friday. Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said his team believes that some pilots working for small regional airlines in Russia have not been properly trained but managed to get fake licenses in centers certified by the countrys aviation agency. Markin said the pilot who sent the Boeing 737 into a dive after an aborted first landing attempt in the city of Kazan had received his license from a small training center that has since been shut down.Report: Death toll up to 280 in Central African RepublicBANGUI, Central African Republic Christian civilians fled by the thousands to the airport guarded by French forces in this chaotic capital Friday as the mostly Muslim armed fighters who have ruled the country since March hunted door-to-door for their enemies and the death toll from inter-communal violence increased to 280 people. Bodies lay decomposing along the roads in a capital too dangerous for many to collect the corpses. The arrival of additional French troops and equipment came as the capital teetered on the brink of total anarchy and represented the greatest hope for many Central Africans. Rebel leader-turnedpresident Michel Djotodia appealed for calm, even as his residence and that of the prime minister were looted and vandalized by the fighters Thursday. He announced a dusk-to-dawn curfew. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressA well-wisher writes a message Friday on a poster of Nelson Mandela on which he and others have written their messages of condolence and support, in the street outside his old house in Soweto, Johannesburg, South Africa. Associated PressMEXICO CITY Six people being tested for possible radiation exposure in a hospital in central Mexico are suspects in the theft of highly radioactive cobalt-60, a government official said Friday. The official said the six were arrested Thursday and taken to the general hospital in Pachuca for observation and testing for radiation exposure. Once they are cleared, they will be turned over to federal authorities in connection with the case of a cargo truck stolen Monday at gunpoint that was carrying the extremely dangerous material. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. He did not specify how the six were allegedly involved in the theft. Hidalgo state Health Minister Pedro Luis Noble said Friday that the six suffered from skin irritations and dizziness, but that none are in grave condition and may be released soon. Only one was vomiting, a sign of radiation poisoning. But based on the tests, none are showing immediatesigns of radiation poisoning, Noble told Foro TV. The cobalt-60 theft triggered alerts in six Mexican states and Mexico City, as well as international notifications to the U.S. and the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna. It raised concerns that the material could have been stolen to make a dirty bomb, a conventional explosive that disseminates radioactive material. The atomic energy agency said the cobalt has an activity of 3,000 curies, or Category 1, meaning it would probably be fatal to be close to this amount of unshielded radioactive material for a period in the range of a few minutes to an hour. But Mexican officials said the thieves seemed to have targeted the cargo truck with moveable platform and crane, and likely didnt know about the dangerous cargo. The government official would not give details or location of Thursdays arrest nor names or ages of the suspects. Federal police blocked access Friday to the hospital where the six were held.

Associated PressOKLAHOMA CITY Whether youre ready to ship that holiday package across the country or waiting for your next shipment of cooking grease, nows not the best time to be in a hurry. Businesses small and large are waiting for pickups and consumers across the land are receiving notices that their packages will be delayed because of a massive, icy blast that will eventually hit from coast-to-coast. For people who rely on the shipping industry, the storm comes at the worst time: the height of the holiday mailing season. Really with this event, we are looking at it almost like we would a hurricane, said Lucas McDonald, a senior emergency manager for Walmart Stores Inc. Knowing hazardous conditions were coming, the company shipped extra merchandise to stores ahead of the storm. As we get to this point, in some cases we have had to take our drivers off the road, and so thats OK because weve already got the merchandise there, said McDonald, a former TV meteorologist. Carlos Suarez, who usually shops online, received a notice Thursday that a video game he ordered on Amazon couldnt be delivered within two days contrary to the $80 fee he pays each year to guarantee rapid deliveries. In this situation it was just a dumb video game, Suarez said. We sometimes order medicine through the mail and that could have been a little more frustrating. Memphis, Tenn.,-based FedEx, too, notified customers of delays, taking cues from a team of 15 meteorologists to highlight on its website the winter storm that started along the west coast and reached Ohio and western Pennsylvania on Friday. Ice storm snarling deliveries nationwide Associated PressJOHANNESBURG Themba Radebe spun slowly in a circle. First he pointed his cellphone camera at a group of children chanting Nelson Mandelas name as they waved posters of the anti-apartheid champion. Then pivoting to his right, Radebe aimed his camera at a swaying group of adults who sang in Zulu while rocking and clapping. A day after Mandelas death at 95, South Africans of all colors erupted in song, dance and tears Friday in emotional celebrations of the life of the man who bridged this countrys black-white divide and helped avert a race war. I dont think Mr. Mandela belonged to black people, said Alex Freilingsdorf, a Toyota executive at a Soweto dealership. He belonged to South Africa. Freilingsdorf and other white South Africans mingled among the hundreds of blacks gathered outside a home where Mandela lived as a young lawyer in the rough and tumble Soweto township. The mood was simultaneously celebratory and somber at the impromptu street festival where Radebe filmed scenes to share with his family. Im sorry, Im too emotional. The tears flow too easily, said the balding 60-year-old, his eyes sparkling with tears as he reflected on how South Africas race relations have improved not perfect, but much better compared with his childhood in the black township. This is a celebration of the death, because we knew he was an old man, Radebe said. He brought a lot of changes to our community, because I grew up in apartheid. It was a very bad situation. At a service in Cape Town, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a Nobel laureate like Mandela and himself a monumental figure in the struggle against apartheid, called on South Africas 51 million people to embrace the values of unity and democracy that Mandela embodied. At Mandelas home in the leafy Johannesburg neighborhood of Houghton, where he spent his last sickly months, a multi-racial crowd paid tribute. As a dozen doves were released into the sky, people sang tribal songs, the national anthem, God Bless Africa the anthem of the anti-apartheid struggle and Christian hymns. He will rule the universe with God, proclaimed a poster..

The Hurricanes (4-1 overall, 1-1 in district play) held a 45-43 lead with three minutes remaining, but Dunnellons Andre Hairston scored nine of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and Willie Robinson connected on 8 of 9 free throws down the stretch to put it away for the Tigers (5-2, 1-0). Robinson hit a pair to tie it up, then lofted a high feed to Hairston down low, who scored while getting fouled and hit the free throw for a three-point Dunnellon lead. Citrus senior point guard Devin Pryor (team-high 21 points) converted a pair of free throws, but the Tigers pulled away down the stretch on the back of Robinsons success at the line and Hairstons strength inside. Of Robinson, Citrus head coach Tom Densmore said, He couldnt miss. And late in the game, thats the difference. Dunnellon head coach Travis Licht agreed. If he doesnt make those free throws, we dont win the game, Licht said. That was clutch. Hes a senior and our leader, and I wouldnt want anyone else at the line. The game was a tale of quarters, as the two teams took turns dominating each period. Citrus rushed out to a 17-9 lead after one quarter, but Dunnellon stormed back to outscore the Hurricanes 22-6in the second to take a 31-23 lead at the half. Citrus went 3 of 15 from the three-point line in the first half, and clearly readjusted their game plan at the break, coming out to outscore Dunnellon 14-5 in the third quarter. We refocused at halftime, the threes werent falling, and we wanted to get the ball to the rim, and maybe get to the foul He couldnt miss late ... thats the differenceTom DensmoreCitrus coach said of Dunnellons Willie Robinsons free throw shooting.

RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO Five minutes gone, and Crystal River held a 4-2 lead over host Lecanto in the two teams District 5A-6 girls basketball battle. Pirates coach Jason Rodgers switched his defense from a 2-1-2 zone to apply more backcourt pressure and, during the final 2 1/2 minutes of the opening quarter, Crystal River outscored the Panthers 15-0. Game over, for all intents and purposes. The final score Friday ended at 44-9, but that 19-2 first-quarter burst, combined with a 17-3 second, sealed the outcome and kept Crystal River unbeaten at 9-0 overall, 2-0 in 5A-6. A very young and inexperienced Lecanto squad fell to 1-9 overall, 0-2 in district play. We went through the same thing against North Marion (Wednesday), Rodgers said. We started out a little rough. How ever they played during those first five minutes, it changed quickly. Junior forward Jasmyne Eason got things going with backto-back steals that led quick baskets, both coming with the pressure defense in place. A couple more Lecanto turnovers the Panthers had 13 in the first quarter and 25 by halftime did even more damage, courtesy of Kiersten Croyle and Brianna Richardson. A Croyle three-pointer pushed the Pirates lead to 11-2, and Richardson followed with two more triples, nine points scored in a 1:05 span. Another Eason basket she had eight in the quarter, nine for the game put it at 19-2 entering the second quarter. Crystal River finished with six three-pointers in the game, two of them coming in the second quarter. Croyles 13 points paced the Pirates, with Katelyn Hannigan and Richardson each contributing six. DeeAnna Moehring scored all nine of Lecantos points. Asked if her team, which collected its first win Thursday, 59-49 over Weeki Wachee, was improving, Lecanto coach Brittany Szunko answered, Not consistently yet. But were working on it. Tale of the half Lecanto boys use big outburst to run past Crystal River 75-49SEANARNOLD CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER It was a tale of two halves Friday in the Crystal River gym, where a defensive struggle made way to a second-half offensive outpouring, but Lecanto proved itself adept in all phases and pulled itself back into strong contention for the top seed in District 5A-6. On the back of 49 combined points from juniors Darius Sawyer and Brandon Burich, the Panthers overcame 17 turnovers and shot 70 percent from the field to upend the Pirates 75-49 in boys hoops action. An especially active Burich, a 6-foot-8 forward, had 17 second-half points in notching 24 on the night, and turned in an impressive all-around outing with a game-high 10 rebounds and four steals. Sawyer, meanwhile, paced all scorers with 25 points and delivered a show-stopping dunk over a defender in the fourth quarter.

Rutgers once promising season has come down to this: win against South Florida or stay home and skip the bowl circuit. A month ago, becoming bowl eligible seemed like a formality for the Scarlet Knights (5-6, 2-5 American Athletic Conference). Consecutive losses to Cincinnati, No. 15 Central Florida and Connecticut, however, have put Rutgers into a mustwin scenario against South Florida (2-9, 2-5) heading into tonights game. For South Florida, the game is a chance to play the spoiler and end coach Willie Taggarts first season on a good note. Rutgers is the one under pressure. After starting the season with a 4-1 record, it has lost five of six to put an eighth bowl bid in nine years in jeopardy. Theres a sense of heightened urgency now because we know this is our last chance, said senior quarterback Chas Dodd, who replaced Gary Nova as the starter last week. We want to get to that bowl game. We havent given up on that. The slide has second-year coach Kyle Flood feeling some heat in what might be the universitys last football game before entering the Big Ten Conference next season. We want to get this win, Dodd said. We want to keep our season going. Flood said his only focus this week is on the game, not the bowl situation. If Rutgers were to win, it probably would receive a bid to either the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., on Jan. 4 or the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 28. Flood said the mood of his team earlier this week was good. Theres not a lot of happiness when youre 5-6, but I see a lot of determination in their eyes and a lot of anxiousness to get back to work to be 1-0, he said. Taggart and his players are more interested in ending a five-game losing streak rather than being spoilers. It would be huge. Huge for our seniors, first and foremost, Taggart said. These guys have been through so much throughout their careers. A lot of changes, not a lot of consistency. Itll be big for them to leave here with something to be happy about. UCF visits SMU with BCS bid in hand Associated PressDALLAS No. 15 UCF has already secured the schools first BCS bid. So the Knights will move on to other things when they finish the regular season Saturday at SMU. Theres a chance for the 33-yearold programs first eight-game winning streak, and an outright title and undefeated league record in the first season of the American Athletic Conference. So theres that to focus on after UCF (10-1, 7-0 AAC) locked up the BCS trip thanks to No. 19 Louisvilles 31-24 overtime victory at Cincinnati on Thursday. When youre doing real good, the easiest thing to do is lose focus, said receiver Rannell Hall, who had four long kickoff returns when the Knights clinched at least tie for the conference title with a 23-20 win over rival South Florida last week. Its late in the season, bodies being weak. With a loss to SMU, the Knights would tie the Cardinals for the league title. UCF has the tiebreaker after beating Louisville 38-35 in October. I do care that were getting ready for SMU as far as winning the championship outright, coach George OLeary said. Weve got one left and we need to get down to Dallas and get done what we need to get done. SMU (5-6, 4-3) is trying to extend a school-record bowl streak to five seasons. Its all the motivation, said quarterback Neal Burcham, a redshirt freshman who made his first career start last week against Houston after Garrett Gilbert sprained his left knee. We have one game left, hopefully two games left. Were going to take this game as win or go home. Associated PressCentral Florida wide receiver J.J. Worton and the Knights take on SMU today in Dallas. UCF can finish an undefeated run through the ACC. Auburn, Mizzou up for SEC title game Associated PressATLANTA Auburn and Missouri are competing for the Southeastern Conference title Saturday, and possibly a chance to play for the national championship. Yet both teams have to guard against a letdown. As ludicrous as that might sound, Auburn and Missouri are coming off emotionally charged victories last week that gave each coach a reason to fret just a bit. No. 3 Auburn (11-1, 7-1 SEC) used one of the greatest finishing plays in college football history a 109-yard return of a missed field goal with no time on the clock to beat two-time defending national champion Alabama in the Iron Bowl for the West Division title. No. 5 Missouri (11-1, 7-1) won the East with a thrilling victory of its own, knocking off Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M 28-21. The challenge of any coach, the leadership of the team, the coaching staff, everybody, is can you stay focused to do what you do day-to-day to play your best? Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said Friday at the Georgia Dome, where each team held its final workout. I would like to think were doing all the right things. Weve done it all year long. Auburn must get past one of the most improbable victories ever, beating its biggest rival in a game that likely eliminated the Crimson Tide from its quest for an unprecedented third straight national title. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn watched the frenzied crowd storm the field at JordanHare Stadium, then urged his team to get right back to work. The challenge with emotional wins like that is youve got to put it behind you, he said. Associated PressAuburn quarterback Nick Marshall salutes fans on Nov. 30 after scoring against Alabama on a 45-yard touchdown run in Auburn, Ala. Marshall has made clutch plays and run the No. 3 Tigers offense with increasing proficiency in win after win. Big Ten game a classic matchup No. 2 OSU, No. 10 MSU meet today Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS The Big Ten championship game already looks like a classic contest. No. 2 Ohio State comes to Indianapolis with its trendy, up-tempo offense and a powerful old-style ground game that has been virtually unstoppable. No. 10 Michigan State counters with its typically stout defense, which doesnt allow many opposing offenses to get in sync. Yes, its time to settle in for Saturday night. Its miserable, Buckeyes offensive coordinator Tom Herman said jokingly this week. But this is why you coach. These are the games your competitive nature can come out a little bit and say, Im going to have my offense, my checkers, my pieces are going to be more prepared and play harder and longer and with better technique and effort than yours. The stakes couldnt be higher: To the winner goes an all-expenses paid bowl trip to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. And if the Buckeyes (12-0) extend their school record winning streak, the nations longest, to 25, the reward may be even greater what is likely to be their fourth appearance in the BCS title game, their first with twotime national champion coach Urban Meyer. But few teams pose a bigger obstacle than the Spartans (11-1). A year ago, they fell just short of upsetting the Buckeyes, falling 17-16 in the conference opener. This year, the Spartans have been even stingier. They lead the nation in total yards allowed (237.7 per game) and fewest yards rushing (64.8), and Michigan State also has the No. 1 passing efficiency defense (91.8). If No. 1 Noles beat Duke, theyre in national title game Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Duke cornerback Ross Cockrell is not offended the No. 20 Blue Devils are a 29-point underdog to Jameis Winston and top-ranked Florida State for Saturday nights ACC championship game. Florida State has been blowing everybody out, he said. The Seminoles (12-0, 8-0) have beaten opponents on average 54-11 this season behind Winston, who set ACC freshman records by throwing for 3,490 yards and 35 touchdowns. They have defeated all but one of their opponents by at least 27 points. Now all that stands in the way of the Seminoles reaching the BCS national championship game is an inexperienced Duke (10-2, 6-2) team appearing in its first ACC title game. Ive had the good fortune through the years to play some No. 1 teams in this profession, some of them looked like No. 1 teams, some of them didnt, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. Florida State certainly is. On Thursday, prosecutors said they would not bring sexual assault charges against Winston, the leading Heisman Trophy candidate. A woman had alleged Winston had sexually assaulted her at an off-campus apartment last December. He will play tonight. Despite the commotion surrounding the team the last several weeks, Fisher said Winston has never wavered on the field. When its time to play football, when its time to go to school, he compartmentalizes and handles his responsibilities. ... Its a true trademark to him because he did not let his individual situation affect his team, and to me thats what a man does, Fisher said. Winston expressed relief in a statement released Thursday: Its been difficult to stay silent through this process, but I never lost faith in the truth and in who I am. Winston was not made available Friday for interviews. The Blue Devils (10-2, 6-2) are in many respects the ultimate underdog. They emerged from the weaker side of the ACC conference. Theyre 0-12 all-time facing No. 1ranked teams and 0-18 against the Seminoles. And theyre facing a Florida State team that annihilated three then-ranked opponents by a combined score of 155-28. For Fisher, the biggest challenge may be keeping his team focused, not allowing his players to look ahead to a potential national championship showdown with unbeaten Ohio State. Fisher doesnt seem worried, saying if his team cant get up for a conference championship game then we have an issue. What were thinking about is running through the finish line, Fisher said. When you run the 100meter dash, being No. 1 at the 90meter mark doesnt mean anything. Some things to watch in the ACC championship game:Winstons responseHow will Winston play in his first game since the scandal ended? It certainly has to be a relief for the ACC player of the year. Fisher said he has no doubt his focus will be there. His intelligence level and ability to comprehend the things hes in and embrace the situations is really remarkable, Fisher said. To me thats one of his greatest strengths.Covering BenjaminCutcliffe has gone on record to say the Blue Devils dont have anyone who can match up with Florida States 6-foot-4, 238-pound wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who has 12 touchdown receptions this season, including seven in the last four games. He had three TDs last week against Florida, seemingly scoring nearly at will. Associated PressFlorida State running back Devonta Freeman and the rest of the No. 1 Seminoles face No. 25 Duke today in the ACC championship game. Should Florida State win, it will advanced to the BCS national title game.

They did just that, as Pryor opened the second half scoring with a pair of free throws. Ben Janicki dropped a soft hook shot for a putback, Mitchell Ellis hit a pair from the line, then Pryor converted on a pretty scoop layup in the lane to tie the contest at 31. Janickis putback of another miss gave Citrus the lead, 35-33, and Pryors nice turnaround jumper in the key preserved Citrus one-point lead heading into the fourth. Pryor passed the 1,000 point mark for his high school career, and Densmore gave credit where its due. When we need him in certain situations, hes our go-to guy. So when he fouled out with a minute or so left, that hurt, he said. Pryor also added six rebounds and four assists, while Janicki finished with eight points and nine rebounds for Citrus. Robinson scored 13 points to go with five rebounds and four assists for Dunnellon. I expected a game like this with them, Densmore said. Theyve got a lot of good athletes, and weve got a lot of good athletes, so we chalk one up. They got us here. Citrus next hosts Lake Weir on Tuesday for a 7:30 p.m. start. of steals. We just settled down, really, said Sawyer of his teams pickup on offense. (Lecanto head) Coach (Jeff Anderson) told us to settle down and run our man-set plays, and we ran them and they worked. Senior point guard Thomas Vilardi also pitched in with one of his better recent offensive performances for LHS by adding 12 points six coming on a pair of margin-extending 3s in the third and several assists. Anderson gave credit to who he calls his defensive coordinator, assistant coach Hernan Roldan, and wondered what his Panthers can accomplish if only they cut down their offensive turnovers. Theyre killing us, he said. But thats our youth. I told them if we cut our turnovers in half, were at 93 points. Our guards have to take care of the ball better. But, hey, thats the one negative from the game. We were able to throw the book at (Crystal River) tonight, and they got tired. We had 18 assists, so (Burich and Sawyers) teammates were feeding them well. The win lifts Lecanto back over .500 at 4-3 overall (1-1 in the district). Crystal River, which plays its fourth game in as many days today, moves to 2-3 and 0-1 respectively. The Panthers led just 20-15 midway through the second quarter following a bucket by Reynolds, before going up 28-17 heading into the break behind a pair of Sawyer scores. Crystal River was 7 for 26 from the field in the opening half, and were shooting 25 percent upon entering the fourth, where they scored 21 points on 9 of 12 shooting from the floor. We cant shoot the ball, CRHS head coach Steve Feldman said. Plenty of looks, we just couldnt get them to go down. I thought our defense dug in about as well as it can in the first half. We have some size disadvantage with our opponent, obviously. As the ball continued to not go in, he added, we were spending ourselves on the defensive end and Lecanto would kick the ball out for open looks. While hobbled by a hurting ankle, senior Ty Reynolds led his Pirates with 13 points nine in the first half and junior forward Carlton Gadsen grabbed a team-high eight rebounds for Crystal River. Pirates sophomore Shaun Frasier, a 5-foot-8 guard, helped spark his club with five points, two boards and a steal in the final quarter. We got some mop-up stuff near the end, and thats hopefully good for a couple of guys confidence, Feldman said. Crystal River plays Haines City Landmark Christian today at 12:45 p.m. in the Ocala ATR Showcase at St. John Lutheran. Lecanto is at home Tuesday against Hernando. The second half was a curious one, with all the Pirates starters but Croyle playing very few minutes. I was determined to get my second string in there, Rodgers said. They needed the work too. Those (Lecanto) girls have talent and are well coached, but theyre young. Its going to take time. Still, it was curious when, facing a 385 deficit two minutes into the third quarter, it was Lecanto that went into a stall when facing Crystal Rivers 2-1-2 zone, holding the ball for several minutes in a period in which the only points scored came on a basket by Hannigan. Asked for her reasoning for the slow-down, Szunko said, Just to control the game, the pace of the game, and work on our fundamentals. Look at the stat sheet and you can see they scored 36 in the first half but only eight in the second. Leading Crystal River on the boards was Kaylan Simms with eight rebounds, while Eason added five boards and six steals to go with her nine points. Wells led the Pirates with seven steals, and Richardson contributed four assists. Taylor Mitchells nine rebounds topped Lecanto. Crystal River must travel to St. Petersburg Boca Ciega for a game Thursday before hosting once-beaten Citrus in a mid-season 5A-6 showdown Friday. Lecanto hosts both Brooksville Nature Coast Tech Monday and Wildwood Thursday before going on the road to play Dunnellon Friday.

Trenton (12-1) shut down Blountstowns option offense, holding the Tigers to just 79 yards on 43 carries. Cheevers first catch of the game was a 54-yard touchdown pass from Stephen Smith. He would add a 48-yard catchand-run later in the half. Blountstown (13-1) looked to their quarterback platoon of Dylan Lee and Hunter Jordan to make a difference but the quarterbacks combined to go 4 of 11 for 63 yards and two interceptions. In the third quarter Lee was intercepted by Michael Smith, who returned it 35 yards for a touchdown to give Trenton a 14-0 lead. Kade Rogers led the defensive charge for Trenton with 10 tackles, six tackles for loss and a sack.Champagnat Cath. downs Victory Christian 14-7ORLANDO Michael Frederick ran for two touchdowns as Hialeah Champagnat Catholic defeated Lakeland Victory Christian 14-7 in the Florida football Class 2A state championship. It is the first football championship for Champagnat Catholic (14-0). The Lions scored on the opening drive of the game Friday, going 32 yards in eight plays. Neither team did much offensively for the rest of the first half, and Victory Christian failed to take advantage of some good field position. Fredericks second score came on the opening drive of the second half. Victory Christian (10-4) rallied behind the play of quarterback Caleb Lewis, who rushed for a short touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to close to gap to 14-7. The Storm had two more possessions and drove down to the Champagnat 23 with less than a minute remaining, but Lewis pass to Adre Poleon on 4th and 14 was overthrown. Frederick rushed for 64 yards on 18 carries, while Lewis was 11-of-25 for 165 yards with two interceptions.AP sources: Beltran, Yanks agree at $45M, 3 yearsNEW YORK Carlos Beltran is coming back to New York, this time to the Bronx. The All-Star outfielder and the Yankees agreed Friday to a $45 million, three-year contract, two people familiar with the deal said. Beltrans agreement came hours after second baseman Robinson Cano decided to leave for Seattle and on the same day pitcher Hiroki Kuroda agreed to return for 2014. Beltrans deal was detailed to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it was subject to a physical and had not yet been announced. The agreement was first reported by the New York Daily News. Beltran, 36, is an eight-time All-Star who played for the Mets from 2005-11, when he was dealt to San Francisco. He signed a $26 million, two-year contract with St. Louis before the 2012 season and reached the World Series for the first time this year. Slowed by knee injuries, Beltran has retained a potent bat especially in October. He hit .296 with 24 homers and 84 RBIs for the Cardinals this year and added two homers and 15 RBIs in the postseason. Beltran injured ribs in the World Series opener when he banged into Fenway Parks right-fight fence while robbing Bostons David Ortiz of a grand slam. Beltran joins a crowded Yankees outfield. Brett Gardner, Ichiro Suzuki and Alfonso Soriano are set to return, and Jacoby Ellsbury has a $153 million, seven-year deal pending. From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

B4SATURDAY, DECEMBER7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS US soccer receives tough World Cup draw Americans to play Ghana, Portugal and Germany Associated PressThe United States will play Ghana, Portugal and Germany in what appears to be the most difficult first-round group at next years World Cup, one that will take the Americans on a 9,000mile trip around Brazil. Making its seventh straight appearance at soccers showcase, the U.S. was drawn Friday into Group G and opens on June 16 in Natal against Ghana, which eliminated the Americans at the 2006 and 2010 tournaments. The U.S. meets Portugal and 2008 FIFA Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo six days later in the Amazon rain forest city Manaus. The Americans have just three off days to recover before closing group play on June 26 in Recife against three-time champion Germany. I think we have the quality, if we play our best ball, to get out of the group, U.S. captain Clint Dempsey said. You cant think about, Am I the favorite? Am I the underdog? Whats it going to be like playing in the heat? Whats it going to be like with the travel? Those are factors that come into it, but at the end of the day both teams have to deal with it. Statistically, the U.S. group has the top average FIFA world ranking. Its definitely one of the tougher groups, if not the toughest, but at the same time, this is what the World Cups all about. You go there to play against the best, American forward Jozy Altidore said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. I think the boys will be excited, will be up for it. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann played for Germanys 1990 World Cup championship team and coached his native country to third place in the 2006 tournament, commuting to Europe from his California home in Orange County. Obviously its one of the most difficult groups in the whole draw, having Portugal with Cristiano Ronaldo and then Ghana, who has a history with the United States. It couldnt get any more difficult or any bigger, he said at the draw in Costa do Sauipe, Brazil. Its a real challenge. And well take it. Well take it on, and hopefully were going to surprise some people there. As the draw pot the U.S. was in was emptied, the Americans and South Korea were the last remaining teams. While the Americans were drawn into the group with an average FIFA ranking of 11.25, South Korea wound up in Group H, creating a group with the poorest average at 28.25. I think the teams mentality is that we can go and play with anybody, American defender Matt Besler said. Now were going to have to prove it. I kind of had in my stomach that we were going to get Germany, Klinsmann said. Germany beat the U.S. 2-0 in a 1998 World Cup opener in Paris with Klinsmann setting up the first goal and scoring the second the edged the Americans 1-0 on a controversial goal in the 2002 quarterfinal in South Korea. Die Mannschaft is coached by Klinsmanns former assistant, Joachim Loew. The Americans beat a second-tier German team 4-3 in a June exhibition at Washington. With Jurgen Klinsmann, they have another mentality, Loew said. I learned a lot from Jurgen, so this is special. Ranked 14th in the world, the U.S. has alternated quick exits with advancement since returning to soccers showcase in 1990. After the draw four years ago, one British paper used a headline EASY for England, Algeria, Slovenia and the Yanks, and The Sun called it the best English group since the Beatles. The Americans wound up atop a group for the first time, and England advanced as the secondplace nation. This time, second-ranked Germany and fifth-ranked Portugal are the favorites to advance to the second round. If the U.S. reaches the round of 16, it would face Belgium, Russia, Algeria or South Korea from Group H. I guarantee you Jurgen knows more about Germany than Jogi Loew knows about the U.S, U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati said. The U.S. will feel pressure to open with a win against Ghana, ranked 24th. The Black Stars defeated the Americans 2-1 in the 2006 stage in Germany and by the same score in overtime in the round of 16 at the last World Cup in South Africa. At the 2002 tournament, the U.S. opened with a 3-2 upset of Portugal after taking a shocking three-goal lead in the first 36 minutes. Everybody is saying that this is the Group of Death and its such a hard challenge, former American captain John Harkes said. I still think that the U.S. can rise to the occasion. In other groups, it is: Group A: Brazil, Cameroon, Croatia, Mexico; Group B: Australia, Chile, Netherlands, Spain; Group C: Colombia, Greece, Ivory Coast, Japan; Group D: Costa Rica, England, Italy, Uruguay; Group E: Ecuador, France, Honduras, Switzerland; Group F: Argentina, BosniaHerzegovina, Iran, Nigeria. Brazil 3-1 favorite, US down to 150-1Brazil has been made a 3-1 favorite to win the 2014 World Cup it will be hosting. The Brazilians remain at the same odds after Fridays draw as they held going into it. Argentina is next at 9-2, barely up from 5-1 odds, according to the professional oddsmakers Keith Glantz and Russell Culver. Germany is 5-1, followed by defending champion Spain at 7-1. The United States, placed in a difficult group with Germany, Portugal (30-1) and Ghana (175-1) for the first round, dropped from 60-1 to 150-1.From wire reports AP World Cup draw: Location mattersThe draw divides the 32 teams into eight groups of four teams each for first-round play in next summers tournament in Brazil. The top two teams in each group will advance to the second round.GROUP A GROUP B GROUP C GROUP D GROUP E GROUP F GROUP G GROUP HBrazil Croatia Mexico Cameroon Spain Netherlands Chile Australia Colombia Greece Ivory Coast Japan Urugary Costa Rica England Italy Switzerland Ecuador France Honduras Argentina Bosia-Herzegonina Iran Nigeria Germany Portugal Ghana United States Belgium Algeria Russia South Korea Infielder will anchor Mariners Associated PressSEATTLE Even as the Seattle Mariners were remaining silent about a potential deal with free agent second baseman Robinson Cano, the New York Yankees were ready to move on. He was a great Yankee. He was a great player. I think everybody tried hard to get the deal done. We just never got close enough obviously. We wish him the best. We hope he has a long, healthy career, Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said on Friday. Were going to keep going. Were still looking at all the same guys that we were looking at a week ago or two ago. Were going to continue to improve. Were not done spending. Goodbye New York. Hello Seattle? The Mariners werent saying much of anything on Friday, only issuing a statement in response to an ESPN report that Cano and the team had reached agreement on a $240 million, 10-year contract pending a physical. It would be tied for the fourth-richest contract in baseball history and a striking blow from a franchise thats done little to get noticed for the past decade. The reported deal would blow away the Yankees last offer of $175 million over seven years. Only the two deals signed by Alex Rodriguez first with Texas and then the Yankees and Joey Vottos contract with Cincinnati were worth more. Albert Pujols also signed a $240 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels. We are not able to confirm any news regarding Robinson Cano at this time. If and when an agreement is completed and finalized, we will announce, the Mariners statement read. Canos reported deal would be one of the largest in baseball history and a coup for a franchise thats gone a dozen years since making the postseason. It would bring creditability for the Mariners after striking out in the past in their pursuits of big free agents like Prince Fielder and Josh Hamilton. Cano was a five-time AllStar second baseman for the Yankees. Last season, he played in 160 games, hitting .314 with 27 homers and 107 RBIs, while posting a .899 on-base plus slugging percentage. He finished fifth in American League most valuable player voting. Cano could be the anchor for a lineup thats lacked consistency at the plate most of the past decade. Between 2009 and 2012, Seattles offense ranked last in baseball in batting average, and was near the bottom in runs scored and homers. The Mariners showed some pop this past season with 188 home runs second-most in baseball but 52 of those came from the combo of Kendrys Morales and 41-year-old Raul Ibanez, both free agents. Associated PressNew York Yankee Robinson Cano watches his two-run home run May 18 at Yankee Stadium in New York. The Seattle Mariners say that cannot confirm any details of a potential deal with the free agent second baseman. The statement came in response to an ESPN report Friday morning that Cano and the Mariners had reached an agreement on a $240 million, 10-year contract pending a physical. Source: Granderson, Mets reach dealNEW YORK Curtis Granderson is heading across town, where the New York Mets hope his home run swing wont suffer at Citi Field. The free-agent outfielder agreed to a $60 million, fouryear contract with the Mets, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal was pending a physical. Granderson, who turns 33 in March, comes over from the crosstown Yankees and gives the Mets much-needed power in their punchless outfield. He batted .229 with seven homers and 15 RBIs this year, when wrist and hand injuries limited him to 61 games. But he surpassed 40 homers in each of his previous two seasons in pinstripes.From wire reports Woods ties record and takes 2-shot lead at Sherwood Associated PressTHOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Tiger Woods had a birdie putt on every hole and made 10 of them Friday to tie his own course record at Sherwood and take a two-shot lead in the World Challenge. Woods had a 10-under 62, matching the score he shot in the second round at Sherwood six years ago. That gave him a two-shot lead over Zach Johnson, who birdied the last hole for a 68. Matt Kuchar also had a 68 and was another shot behind. Graeme McDowell played with Woods and called it a clinic. Woods missed only one fairway and hit every green. Woods said it was similar to the 61 he had at Firestone this year when he won the Bridgestone Invitational by seven shots. Woods already is a five-time winner at Sherwood.Nedbank Golf ChallengeSUN CITY, South Africa Wales Jamie Donaldson completed a firstround 67 and shot 66 in the second round to take the lead in the Nedbank Golf Challenge, South Africas first major sporting event since former president and anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela died Thursday. The 30 players, all wearing black ribbons, spent around nine hours on the course to make up for lost time when the first round was halted because of lightning Thursday. Donaldson had an 11-under 133 total at Gary Player Country Club. The European Tour is sanctioning the event for the first time.Hong Kong OpenHONG KONG South Africas Jbe Kruger shot a 4-under 66 to take the second-round lead in the Hong Kong Open. Kruger had a 7-under 133 total at Hong Kong Golf Club in the event sanctioned by the European and Asian tours. Wales Stuart Manley was a stroke back after a 67. Defending champion Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain was tied for 14th at 3 under after a 67. Last year, Jimenez became the oldest champion in European Tour history, winning at 48 years, 318 days. He also won the event in 2005 and 2008. John Daly missed the cut with rounds of 78 and 68. Daly was making his third start since having surgery on his right elbow in July. He tied for 48th last month in China in the BMW Masters and missed the cut last week in the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa.Dubai Ladies MastersDUBAI, United Arab Emirates Stacy Lewis increased her lead to two strokes in the Dubai Ladies Masters, shooting a 2-under 70 in the third round. The third-ranked Lewis, a threetime winner this year on the LPGA Tour, had an 11-under 205 total in the Ladies European Tours seasonending event. Thailands Pornanong Phatlum was second after a 69. Texans fire coach Kubiak Associated PressHOUSTON The Houston Texans fired Gary Kubiak on Friday, parting ways with the only coach to lead the team to the playoffs. The team announced the decision one day after the Texans lost their 11th straight game, 27-20 at Jacksonville, a stunning fall for a team that expected to make a Super Bowl run. Houston (2-11) played miserably and was flagged 14 times for a franchise-record 177 yards. The 52-year-old Kubiak was hired in 2006 and was working under a threeyear contract that runs through 2014. An eighthround pick out of Texas A&M, he spent nine years as John Elways backup in Denver and has made his mark as an offensive guru and quarterbacks mentor. The Texans said they couldnt wait any longer to start turning things around. Whats taken place with this organization is unacceptable, general manager Rick Smith said. Weve got three weeks of an evaluation process left and weve got to right the ship. Owner Bob McNair said the decision was a hard one. It was difficult for me because I think so much of Gary, McNair said. Were here to have a winning culture and this year has not contributed to that. The Texans said defensive coordinator Wade Phillips would serve as interim coach for the rest of the season. After taking over the team in 2006, Kubiak led the team to back-to-back AFC South titles in 2011-2012. Kubiaks overall record is 61-64, with a 2-2 mark in the playoffs. He suffered a mini-stroke Nov. 3 in a frightening scene, collapsing at halftime during a game against the Colts and being rushed to a Houston hospital. He had returned to the sidelines, but the Texans have been unable to rebound from injuries to top players including quarterback Matt Schaub and running back Arian Foster. Associated PressHouston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak adjusts his headset Thursday as he watches his team in a loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Jacksonville. The Texans fired Kubiak on Friday, parting ways with the only coach to lead the team to the playoffs.

Announcement made through Facebook page Associated PressSACRAMENTO, Calif. Kobe Bryant will make his long-awaited return from a torn left Achilles tendon when the Los Angeles Lakers host the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night. In a dramatic video posted on his Facebook page before the Lakers played at Sacramento on Friday night, Bryant set his muchanticipated comeback date. The video, which was also uploaded to the teams Facebook page, was titled: Seasons of Legend. Lakers announce Kobes return. The video shows Bryants No. 24 jersey flapping in the wind. There is rain, sleet, snow and lightning for nearly 2 minutes. At one point, his jersey tears. Sunshine breaks through the clouds, and the video fades to black. Finally, words flash across the screen that read, The Legend Continues...December 8. Thats something special right there, Lakers teammate Nick Young quipped when a reporter showed him the video on his smartphone in the locker room. How effective Bryant will be against top-tier competition is the last lingering question in his return. Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said Bryant will likely be eased back into the lineup, though he declined to discuss how many minutes he will play in his first game. Asked what his expectations are for Bryant this season, DAntoni said, That hell be a dominant player. He can play any way, DAntoni said. He can play below the rim, above the rim, the side of the rim. The guy can play any way. Hell figure out how hell be effective and hell come at you with everything hes got. Bryant did not travel with the team to Sacramento. The 15-time All-Star hasnt played since he was injured April 12 in a home win over the Golden State Warriors. He had surgery the following morning and was projected to take six to nine months to recover. Bryants return has seemed imminent since he began practicing last month. The 35-year-old guard has said that he could adjust his game and contribute something to the Lakers even if hes not fully healthy when he finally steps on the court for his 18th NBA season. His teammates expect the same. Hes the biggest competitor that there is. Happy to have him back, guard Jodie Meeks said. Hes looked great. Obviously he has to get his timing back and his legs, but I know hes probably been training pretty hard. I dont think it will take him long at all. Los Angeles signed the fourthleading scoring in NBA history to a two-year contract extension last week. Bryants new deal is reportedly worth $48.5 million and takes him into his 20th season with the Lakers. Bryant hasnt given up hope of adding a sixth championship ring to his trophy case, even while the Lakers struggle to keep up with the NBAs best teams. Los Angeles entered Friday nights game with a 9-9 record. Thats still slightly better than most Lakers fans expected this season after the departures of Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace coupled with the injuries to Bryant and 39-year-old point guard Steve Nash, who could return next week from the nerve root irritation in his back. Weve developed some guys that are really going to contribute a lot, and it might not have happened if (Bryant) was here, DAntoni said. You have to look at the bright side of it. Now we just have to get him back to the level that hes capable of playing. Associated PressLos Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant talks Sept. 28 during media day in El Segundo, Calif.

B6SATURDAY, DECEMBER7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Up in weight TONYCASTRO CorrespondentLecanto senior Christopher Ewing is going through a transformation on the mats for the Panthers. Chris, the youngest of four boys to Thomas and Jackie Ewing, was born in Inverness, but resides in Homosassa. Next summer, hell be the fourth Ewing member to graduate from LHS. Like most adolescents, Ewing was seeking a niche a place where he could fit in when he stumbled upon the Panther wrestling room. I was 16 and a sophomore at Lecanto and a bunch of my friends were on the team and said why dont I try out, recalled the current 6-foot-1, 182-pounder. Ewing immediately took to his surroundings. Wrestling is cool because you dont have to rely on other people, Ewing said. When youre in the circle, its all on you. As a first-year varsity grappler he quietly finished 6-9 overall. He was eliminated in the District 2A-7 tournament at Hernando at 160 pounds in his third-round match by Springstead senior Jake Smith with a 40-second pin. Last winter in the same weight division, Ewing fashioned a fine 17-8 campaign, but again blew a fuse in the first leg of the state series. In the 2A-7 tourney at Springstead, he dropped an 8-1 decision to Springsteads first-year varsity grappler, sophomore Billy Swift. From the 2A-7 losers bracket, Ewing was ousted by Land OLakes Cedric Lowe, 4-2. Ewing vividly recalls the lessons learned. I had a bad day at districts, he said. I learned that Ive got to be mentally stronger. Losing that last match was tough on me mentally. Since that loss, Ewing decided to adhere to the advice proposed by LHS coach Scot Roberts to gain weight. Hes an intelligent kid, Roberts said. Hes aggressive, yet he wrestled too many times from the outside. He needed to bulk up and become more physical. Overall, hes gotten so much better on his feet this year, Roberts continued. He and Matt (Wheat) go hard all the time thats why I love those guys theres no letup. Techniquewise, hes learned to go back to things that have shown him success. On the difference a year makes, Hes become a much more physical guy, Roberts noted. By adding nearly 25 pounds, hes learned to wrestle with muscle. He was always a big kid. Now, hes got the strength to match up against some of his bigger opponents. To that end, Ewing broke out of the gates this winter with vengeance during the season-opening Weeki Wachee Duals II. Though the Panthers finished 2-6 in the two-day event, Ewing raised eyebrows with a fine 7-1 run, featuring a team-best five pins. On Wednesday, though the host Panthers fell 60-21 to archrival Crystal River, Ewing folded Eddie Bennis at 182 pounds into a 10-4 decision for his team-leading eighth win. Ewing was quick to identify the source of his new-found success. Bigger is better, Ewing said with a smile. Ive always been tall, but I felt I was undersized for the guys I was competing against. Since last year, Ive put on over 20 pounds. My bench (press) has gone up over 80 pounds so I feel much stronger. Ive kinda grown into my body. Ewing played one season of football at tight end as a sophomore. He doesnt regret never returning to the gridiron. I felt like I had a family with my wrestling teammates. When things go wrong on the football field and people start pointing fingers at everybody else, Ewing said. In wrestling, its all on you. The sport teaches you responsibilities. On the eve of this weekends rugged 32ndannual Kiwanis Invitational at Hernando High (which concludes today), Ewing was quick to credit his practice partner, Wheat, on his growth. Matt is pretty tough, Ewing said. Hes coming back from a dislocated elbow. Ive wrestled him since we were sophomores. He definitely pushes me in practice. Hes a lot smaller than I am, so he makes work twice as hard. In his spare time, Ewing dedicates himself to two hobbies: bodybuilding and photography. Its funny, Ive never been a big guy and now that Ive put on the weight, I can see the results, Ewing said. As far as photography, I just shoot whatever catches my eye. By seasons end Ewing would like to place among the top six at states. Im looking forward to Kiwanis, he said. My goal is go undefeated and eventually be the best 182-pounder in the county. To do that, I have to beat (Citrus senior) Brandon (Taylor). MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleLecanto senior Chris Ewing, top, feels more at home in the 182-pound weight class this season after gaining 25 pounds of mostly muscle. Im sure many of you have noticed that a lot of the police cars along the highways are the newer Dodge Chargers. These Chargers seem to be very popular with law enforcement. However, this is not a recent phenomenon as MOPARS (cars produced by Chrysler Corp. Divisions) have been used as police cars for many years. Plymouth has apparently been in the police car business longer than most people realize. The Washington State Patrol used Plymouth coupes in 1932. While early Fords had a reputation for speed and power desired by police departments, Plymouths were a popular choice for police work even in the early years. The Greely, Colo. police department pitted the 1935 Chevrolet, Ford and Plymouth against each other before deciding on which model to buy for their police work. The three cars were paced over a level one-mile pavement course. The Plymouth clipped through the mile in just 60 seconds, reaching a top speed of 90 miles per hour and doing much better than the Chevy or Ford. It wasnt until the 1950s, however, that the term police package (referring to a specially equipped automobile designed solely for police work) would come into common usage. Most of these cars, of course, were equipped with the largest possible engines plus a special handling package not available to the general public. In later years these cars were true muscle cars in every sense of the word, except that the muscle package was hidden in a mom-and-pop four door sedan rather than the more noticeable convertible or hard top coupe. In 1956, Chryslers first official police package was offered on Dodge Coronets and, a year later, Dodge offered the 325 HEMI engine, with a variety of performance packages and a top power rating of 310 hp. 1957 was a big year for Plymouth in the police car market, which it dominated for many years. Keeping its eye on Dodge, Plymouth had come up with a Police Pursuit package on its own for the 1957 models. Plymouth, however, had put together a series of packages which appealed to a cross section of police work. Through the 1960s, 70s and 80s, the Plymouth and Dodge brands were very popular with police departments. This changed in the 1990s as the Jeep Cherokee was the only official Chrysler police car from 1996 to 2001 there were no Plymouth or Dodge police cars. Dodge began to recapture part of the police car market starting in the 2000s, offering police packages for the Intrepid, Magnum and Charger. Today, the Dodge Charger seems to be one of the dominant brands with the police as we see lots of them around.Car jokeA guy driving a Yugo pulled up at a traffic light alongside a Rolls Royce. The Yugo driver rolled down his window and called across, Hey buddy, thats a nice car. You got a phone in your Rolls? Ive got one in my Yugo. As a matter of fact I do have a phone, replied the Rolls driver nonchalantly. The Yugo man went on: You got a fridge in your Rolls because I have one in the back of my Yugo. Yes, I do have a refrigerator. What about a TV? You got a TV in your Rolls, because I have one in the back of my Yugo? Yes, of course I have a television in my car, replied the Rolls driver, irritated. How about a bed? persisted the Yugo driver. Have you got a bed in your Rolls because I have one in the back of my Yugo? Annoyed that he didnt have a bed, the Rolls driver sped off and arranged to have one installed that same day. The next morning, he sought out the Yugo, finally tracking it down on a side street where it was parked with all the windows steamed up. The Rolls driver got out of his car and banged on the door of the Yugo. There was no reply, so he banged again. Eventually the Yugo driver stuck his head out the window. His hair was soaking wet. The Rolls driver announced proudly: I now have a very nice bed in my Rolls. The Yugo driver glared back: You got me out of the shower to tell me that?

Imhoff Gymnasium. The 31-team field is expected to be the first real test for the two Citrus County teams.Pirates 411Crystal River improved to 8-1 in dual meets Wednesday by trimming county rival Lecanto, 60-21 Fridays Kiwanis Invite serves as the Pirates first IBT (individually bracketed tournament) event. CRHS hasnt competed in any mat tourneys since the Nov. 15-16s Weeki Wachee Duals II. Over the past 11 Kiwanis meets, the Pirates have fared well placing in the Top 10 eight times. Last winter, CRHS finished 13thin the 25-team field with 79.5 points. Dylan Ayala was the teams lone placer (second) at 152 pounds. He dropped an epic 13-10 decision to Lake Gibson senior Alex Destra. In 11 years, 26 CHS grapplers have placed fourth or better at Kiwanis. Only one, however, has returned to Citrus County with a gold medal sophomore Seth Metz at 171 pounds in 2003. CRHS is expecting to fill all 14 weight classes. When you get 30-plus teams, youre gonna get some tough matches. Thats why were coming, explained veteran Pirate head coach Craig Frederick. We want to see good wrestling and see how our guys handle the pressure of those types of matches. The Pirate return six grapplers who competed at Kiwanis last winter including: seniors Michael Allen at 132, Nick Hooper at 152, Andrew Bilby at 195, Carlos Sanabria at 220 and Mitch Foster at 285, along with sophomore Eddie Bennis at 182. Bilby (4-0, 4 pins this season) is a 2011 Kiwanis placer. Entering the meet, Allen (8-0), Justin Burcroff and Hooper (8-1) lead the team in victories. According to Frederick, the Pirates best bets on going deep into the brackets are Allen, Hooper and Bilby. It really all depends on who else is there, Frederick said. Were going to get the toughness necessary to compete for the remainder of the schedule. Kiwanis is all about facing better kids and to get good matches.Panthers 411Lecanto is the lone Citrus County mat team to ever capture the Kiwanis Invite under Cory Collins in 1998. Last winter, head coach Scot Roberts squad placed 17thoverall with 48 points. Similar to Crystal River, Kiwanis serves as the Panthers initial IBT of the season. According to skipper Scot Roberts, the Panthers are expecting to fill 12 weight classes all but 106 and 113. The Panthers are expected to bring three grapplers with previous Kiwanis experience: sophomore Austin Hartman at 120 and seniors Bryce Hickey at 145 and Chris Ewing at 182. Ewing enters with a team-best 8-1 slate, featuring five pins. I see Kiwanis as a good barometer for our team, Roberts said. If you dont place here, youve got a lot of work to do.Canes host Hermann CupCitrus Countys firstever mat state champion was Crystal Rivers Rob Hermann at 112 pounds in 1976.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Recently, local church pastor Lloyd Bertine stopped by the newsroom to talk about depression his. He had just come through a second bout of it and thought it was important to tell people that Christians and Christian pastors are not immune to it. Its not a character thing; its a chemical, brain thing, he said. He called his depression a dark night of the soul. It made him tired and unable to eat, doubtful of Gods love for him, although not Gods existence. He said he felt guilty getting up and preaching on Sundays, encouraging people when he felt discouraged. Things were dark, but he was never suicidal, he said. I told him that a few years back, I had gone through something that might be depression, although for me it was never a dark pit of hopelessness, but more like a constant, dulling fog. I was sad, sort of, but I didnt cry. Instead, Id go to Walmart a lot and push a cart around, thinking about buying pajamas because what I really wanted to do was go to bed. Maybe it wasnt true depression. Maybe it was depression-lite. Depressionish. Not enough to check myself into a hospital but enough to feel like I was in a fog and unable to see clearly, feeling out of sorts and out of touch. Depression-lite isnt as obvious as a dark night of the soul or the black hole that swallows some people, but its real nonetheless. According to the World Health Organization, depression is the second most common cause of disability after cardiovascular disease and is on track to be No. 1 within 10 years. As many as 25 percent of people in the U.S. will experience some form of depression during their lifetime. Mine lasted about a year. During that time I had a hard time getting to church. Id get into my car and try to get to a particular intersection. If I made it that far without turning around I knew I could make it into the building, and if I made it into the building, I knew Id stay. However, more often I wouldnt couldnt make it to my regular spot The daylight after the fog lifts Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES SOUTH BEND, Ind. The University of Notre Dame is suing the Obama administration over a federal mandate that its health insurance plans for students and employees cover birth control. The university filed its lawsuit Tuesday in U.S. District Court in South Bend. It claims the mandate violates Notre Dames freedom to practice religion without government interference. The Roman Catholic university says the birth control mandate violates the churchs teaching prohibiting contraception. The Obama administration promotes the laws provision of a range of preventive care, free of charge, as a key benefit of the health care overhaul. Contraception is included in the package of cost-free benefits. The administration also attempted to create a buffer for religiously affiliated hospitals, universities and social service groups that oppose birth control. The U.S. Supreme Court recently agreed to consider two cases in which business owners have objected to covering birth control for employees on religious grounds. RELIGION BRIEFS Christmas tree lit outside U.S. Capitol WASHINGTON An 88-foot-tall spruce that was transported from Washington state to Washington D.C. has been illuminated in a ceremony on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol. House Speaker John Boehner flipped the switch that lit the Capitol Christmas Tree, helped by the 6-year-old son of an Iraq war veteran. Washington Congressman Jim McDermott said Christmas is about a child that came into the world and changed the world. He added, I hope this tree will remind us of Jesus call to feed the hungry, to welcome the stranger, to clothe the naked and to take care of the sick. The U.S. Marine Band played O Come all ye Faithful, Joy to the World, O Holy Night and other Christmas hymns. On Friday, the National Christmas Tree will be lit on the Ellipse between the White House and the Washington Monument. Notre Dame sues over birth control mandate In 2010, the Rev. Lloyd Bertine preached 42 funerals. The first one was for his sister and the 42nd one was for his sisters husband. In between he did funerals for young people, babies, pillars in the community, childhood friends, strangers. After a while, it sent me into an emotional tailspin, said Bertine, pastor of Gulf to Lake Church in Crystal River. However, that wasnt his first bout of depression. His first was in 1985-86, when he was a pastor in Colorado. We had just gone through a three-year major building program and were growing numerically. For three years, my adrenaline was pumped, a constant adrenaline high trying to keep people and myself pumped up, he said. When that was all over, the church sent me to a Dolphins-Broncos football game Im a Dolphins fan. It was September 1985, and as Bertine sat in the stands, on top of his game, he felt an overwhelming sense of: Now what? Now what are you going to do for God? I felt lost, and it started spiraling downward from there and ended in depression, although I didnt know what it was, he said. After a few months, Bertine sought a Christian counselor who told him, You dont really know that God loves you ... From what youve told me, your God is a taskmaster whos always kicking you in the rear, saying, Now what are you going to do? How are you going to top this? The counselor told Bertine that he would never be happy until he understood that even if he completely failed and his church fell apart, God would continue to be pleased with him and would never stop loving him. At first, that made me mad, Bertine said. I didnt accept that, but eventually I realized that everything he said was true, that Gods love, mercy and grace have nothing to do with me or my performance. When Bertine was hit with his second bout of depression in 2010, he said he recognized it and sought help again. He also talked about it with other pastors, something he hadnt done the first time. Theres all this guilt, he said. It hit me spiritually why am I preaching? Do you really believe what youre saying? What right do you have to speak to people? You have to get beyond the shame and the guilt. He said he kept quiet during his first time of depression because he knew what other pastors would tell him.hen youre a pastor or spiritual leader, people look to you for any number of things. When you are in trouble, your pastor walks with you, counsels you, prays with and for you, finds you resources. When you are sick, your pastor sits by your bedside, anoints you with oil, tells you stories and shares scriptures to encourage your faith. Your pastor imparts his (or her) wisdom each week, sometimes in multiple sermons. Your pastor baptizes you, performs your wedding and your funeral. Week after week, month after month, year after year even when his light grows dim. Even when his soul is afraid, even when her faith wavers even when he doubts that God still loves him. Even when that happens, your pastor still has to be your pastor, and not just yours, but everyone elses in your congregation. Here is one pastors story about his dark night of the soul.by Nancy Kennedy The Rev. Lloyd Bertine, pastor of Gulf to Lake Church in Crystal River.NANCY KENNEDY /Chronicle Some well-known spiritual heroes who suffered from depression include: 16th-century mystic St. John of the Cross who first spoke about the dark night of the soul. C.S. Lewis, author of Mer e Christianity and the Chronic les of Narnia books, among many others. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, w ho car ed for thousands of the sick and dying in India. Martin Luther, father of the Protestant R ef ormation. See NIGHT/ Page C4 See GRACE/ Page C2 WASHINGTON The Supreme Court has turned away a Christian universitys attempt to overturn a key part of the Obama administrations health care law. The justices did not comment Monday in leaving in place a federal appeals court ruling dismissing Liberty Universitys lawsuit. Liberty made several arguments in challenging the portion of the health care law that requires most employers to provide health insurance to their workers or pay a fine. The 4th U.S. Circuit of Appeals in Richmond, Va., rejected those claims. The Supreme Court separately is considering whether for-profit corporations can mount religious objections to the laws requirement to include birth control among preventive health benefits. Court turns away Liberty U. lawsuit VATICAN CITY Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has given Pope Francis a book about the Inquisition in Spain that was written by the Israeli leaders late father. Netanyahu presented a Spanish translation of the 1995 book, The Origins of the Inquisition, to Francis during their 25-minute private audience Monday. Netanyahus father was an Israeli historian who died last year. A Zionist activist who opposed partitioning Palestine between Arabs and Jews, he was best known in academic circles for his research into the Catholic Churchs medieval inquisition against the Jews of Spain. Francis thanked Netanyahu and presented him with a small bronze plaque of St. Paul. Netanyahu gives pope book on Inquisition From wire reports

They are a staple of the American junk food diet and they are a soughtafter gastronomical delight all over the world. But there is one place where the cheeseburger does not reign as king, and that is in the kosher Jewish kitchen. The prohibition against mixing milk or dairy products with meat appears three times in the Hebrew Bible, in Exodus 23:19, Exodus 34:26 and Deuteronomy 14:21. In the Jewish tradition, when things are repeated in the Torah, it is done for emphasis, so that this particular law or prohibition is to be taken seriously. The commandment forbids boiling a kid in its mothers milk. This has been interpreted as a kindness to animals, as well as showing a distinction between the Canaanite peoples, whose practices included mixing milk with meat products. Anything that was against what the pagan population was doing was a way to make the Israelites holy, separate from the nations around them. This was an attempt to create a nation of priests and holy people, a group of people who would be concerned with spiritual and ethical values, serving the one God. Of course, these ideas are all commentary. The great sage, Rashi, also had his version of what the prohibition meant. The verse about boiling a kid (gdee) in his mothers milk refers to any young domestic animal such as a goat, lamb or cow. Had the verse stated gdee eezim, that would have meant a young goat. So Rashi concluded that gdee referred to all meat from a goat, lamb or cow. Since one cannot tell how old a cow was when it was butchered, even an old cow would fall under this custom. It was thought that if one ate meat from a cow with cheese, one could not be sure that the milk for the cheese did not come from the milk of the already butchered mother. This rule of kashrut (keeping kosher) would seem to apply only to red meat, but since poultry is also considered meat, chicken, turkey, quail and other domestic birds fall into the category of separating milk and meat, even though birds do not down front. Id sit somewhere way in the back, praying to be invisible. A Christianity Today report said depression is in part a withdrawal by the weary into an inner world, an attempt to create a protective cocoon against real-world demands. Thats how I felt as I still went to work, still wrote my column every week, still told you all about Gods mercy and grace, still believing it was true, just not quite feeling it through the fog. Years ago, we lived on the Monterey Bay in California, where the summers are foggy and cold. Sometimes it would stay foggy all week. One time, I had to drive through fog that was so dense I could barely see, which was quite scary. All I could do was stay behind the car in front of me with my eyes fixed on its taillights, praying all the way. After about 10 or so miles, the fog lifted and I was never so happy to see daylight. During the Monterey summers, when the fog would finally burn off, I would grab towels and sand toys and head to the beach with my girls. Wed wade through the tide pools looking for crabs, watch the sea otters in the water cracking open abalones on their bellies, or watch people hang gliding over the bay. I rejoiced when the fog lifted. I loved the feel of hot sunshine on my face and bare arms. After days on end of grayness you forget how good it is to be warmed by the sun. You forget that there could be anything different, anything better. You forget that the sun is always there, above the gray and the cold, damp mist. However, I never completely forgot, and neither did Pastor Bertine. Thats because God never leaves his children without hope, never leaves his children alone, even when it feels like it. The psalmist cried out to God in his distress and God sent thunder and lightning, hurled spears and reached from heaven deep into the deepest pit, pulled him out and set him safely in a spacious place because he delighted in me (Psalm 18). In the deepest darkness, in the thickest fog, even in depression-lite, God is still there, still able to save, still holding out hope, still loving his own.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

While these ancient rules of dietary laws may seem inconvenient, with todays foods, substitutions are quite easy. A veggie burger with cheese is very acceptable, as is a real hamburger with imitation non-dairy cheese. As with many of the customs and laws of Judaism, things have crept into Jewish culture, which make Jews distinct people. Just as there are food taboos in other cultures, the Jews too have added their own particular mix. To a vegetarian, fish could be considered meat, but alas, it is exempt from the prohibition about mixing milk with meat. I would ask: Is a little fishie any less a creature of God to be respected? Fish, like birds, lay eggs, so no milk is involved. But who is to tell what mother fish gave birth to whom? It is a thought, however farfetched. In the whole scheme of things, there are some laws in Judaism that we just cannot explain. We call this chok, a statute we follow because God has told us to do so. We can come up with any number of reasons and interpretations, but in the end, we follow them because they were commanded to us to do so in order that we would lead holy lives. With this in mind, pass me a veggie burger with mushrooms and Swiss cheese and dont forget the kosher pickle.Judi Siegal is a retired teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Ocala with her husband, Phil. She can be reached at niejudis@yahoo.com. They were just like me, he said. Theyd tell me, If youre strong enough and have enough faith, you wont get into this situation. Thats what I wouldve said. I had to apologize to my church out West for the many people who came to me and Id say something glib and clich like, You need more faith. When I opened up to them, it was like opening the floodgates, he said. They told me, We couldnt come to you with our problems because you were too strong, saying, enough faith could overcome anything. The Lord had to teach me lessons about compassion and empathy the hard way. Bertine also said he had to learn that taking medication for depression is not a character issue. He said, If you had diabetes, would you take insulin? If you had thyroid issues, would you take a thyroid pill? Then whats the difference with depression? The difference is, we think we can fix it by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps, but its a chemical thing, a physical thing. He added that hes had to learn other things too, such as not thinking that he has to visit every single person whos sick or have his hands on every single detail of running the church its too much for one person to handle alone. He has also learned that a congregation wont run away or turn on him for admitting that hes human or that hes struggling. Its amazing how your mind, the chemical imbalance, how it clouds your reality, he said. I call it being DUI doubting under the influence, the influence of depression. I can handle the fatigue and not wanting to eat, but not the spiritual doubt and the thinking that God really doesnt care and my prayers dont even go beyond the ceiling. When you come out of it you think, How could I doubt? I know God loves me. But you do think that, so do a lot of others. But youre not alone. Thats why its important, especially for pastors, to tell someone.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.comC4SATURDAY, DECEMBER7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLERELIGION 000FYT2 Pastor Terry Roberts Ph: 726-0201 Independent Fundamental Cross road Bap tist Chu rch 000DIWC Youre invited to our Services Sunday School 10:00 AM Sunday 10:45 AM & 6:00 PM Wednesday 7:00 PM 5335 E.

Anxiety rates among clergy were 13.5 percent, and more than 7 percent of clergy reported simultaneously experiencing both depression and anxiety. Job stress was named among the contributing factors for depression and anxiety. Other factors included grief counseling, navigating the competing demands of their congregation members, delivering a weekly sermon (that opens them up to criticism) and the strain of constantly having to juggle these roles. Furthermore, the study found that pastors sense of guilt about not doing enough at work was a top predictor of depression; doubt of their call to ministry was a top predictor of anxiety. Pastors with less social support those who reported feeling socially isolated were at higher risk for depression.

We appreciate the many donations we have received and try to do our part in giving back. For instance, club members made holiday cards for a young soldier far away from home at Christmas. In the cards, along with the crayoned Christmas trees and glittery candles, they thanked him for his service to our country and wished him well. The Robert Halleen Club is collecting needed items for the children who live at Mission of Citrus and are making cards for them. They will also do a trash cleanup at Bluebird Springs. The Evelyn Waters Club has an ongoing food drive and they do trash pickups at the Trail and Liberty Park. At this time of year, many people make their annual donations to charities and deserving nonprofit organizations. These donations coming before the end of the year, if to the Boys & Girls Clubs, are tax deductible and thereby help the giver as well as the recipient. Donations to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County, stay in this county making things better for the 450 to 500 children we reach each year. Without our afterschool programs, many children would be at home without supervision while mom and dad are at work. Seventy-two percent of our kids live with a single parent or someone who is not a relative. Ninety-three percent of club members are between the ages of 5 and 13 years, and 66 percent of members are male. Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County members are at risk to the many pressures of society, both good and bad. A good number of our families are economically disadvantaged with parents unemployed, or 80 percent of those who work making $25,000 or less for a family of four or more. Sixty-three percent of our club members are eligible for the free or reduced-price school lunch program. Some youths live in circumstances that are considered unhealthy and 8 percent of members say they feel afraid even while at home. Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County dedicated staff members and proven programs build self-esteem and help children develop skills that will stay with them as they grow into young adults. You can make a gift to help our children. Call 352-621-9225 or visit www.citrus bgc.com to make a donation. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County are partially funded by the United Way of Citrus County, Kids Central Inc. and the Florida Department of Education.Lane Vick is grant coordinator of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County.

Spot requests help to wrap gifts Family Christmas party will be on Dec. 24 Special to the ChronicleA special store in Lecanto offers shoppers the chance to furnish and embellish while supporting programs for local youths. The Home Again Resale Store has a varied inventory because none of it is newly manufactured; rather, the store has unique items that are either donated or, more typically, consigned under a 50/50 program. Available are furniture, accessories, artwork, jewelry, books and more. Home Again donates all its net income to the Central Ridge Boys & Girls Club in Beverly Hills.

C6SATURDAY, DECEMBER7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.In yesterdays deal, declarer had to take three club finesses with Q-9-3 opposite A-J-102. This required running the nine, the lower high card, first, so that he could repeat the finesse two more times without needing an extra entry. I thought that was standard technique until I saw this deal. South gets to five clubs. West leads the spade king. How should South approach the play? North might have bid one no-trump, but two clubs was preferable. If South had interest in three no-trump, he could have cue-bid in spades. Also, if South had something like queen-doubleton of spades, he ought to have been the no-trump declarer, not North. South has two losers in the black suits. So he must find East with both red-suit kings, unlikely as that might seem. And being in the dummy for the last time, declarer has to take three finesses, two in diamonds and one in hearts. How? If South runs the diamond nine, what does he do next? If he leads dummys diamond 10, he will be stuck in his hand with the jack. And if he plays the queen, East can cover with the king to put South into his hand. Instead, declarer must start with dummys diamond queen. If East covers, South wins, plays a diamond to dummys nine, and takes the heart finesse. Or, if East plays low, South unblocks his jack, then continues with the diamond nine. He can take all three finesses and make his contract. Bridge retains its appeal primarily because you can rarely use the words always and never.

(N)NewsMotherRules Dear Annie: Since childhood, my mother has told me she never wanted me. I now have two children of my own. At one point, I became homeless, and my parents took me in. But I became ill and needed major surgery. While recovering, my brothers son came over often and would constantly pick on my sons. My parents did nothing. One day, I heard my youngest son screaming, and when I checked, I saw my 10-year-old nephew hurting him and trying to molest him. I confronted my parents and my brother about allowing this behavior to go on, and Mom said to forget about it. Dad said nothing. Now my mother has disowned me and will have nothing to do with my children. I have no other family, and this hurts. How can I get my parents to admit that my bully of a nephew has a serious problem? On the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown Dear Edge: Your nephew does indeed have a problem, but you cannot force your parents to address it. Your job is to protect your children. If that means keeping them away from your brother, your parents, your nephew or anyone else, then that is what you do. If the nephew molested your son, you could report the situation to the authorities. Please look for family in your community and church. There are plenty of older adults who would love to be surrogate grandparents for your sons and would treat them with the caring and consideration they deserve. Dear Annie: I taught in the Maryland public school system for many years before retiring 10 years ago. Every year at Christmastime, the students gave me Christmas ornaments. Some were homemade from individual students, and others were large and from the whole class. Of course, I thanked each of them. But as the years went on, my appreciation grew as I took them out each season to decorate my tree. I wrote their names on the ornaments, so each year I am able to think lovingly of those children. They continue to make my Christmas special. To their parents, I thank you for allowing me to teach your children. Hopefully, those children will have fond memories about some way in which I made them feel special. They were certainly special to me. They were one of the reasons I loved to teach. I still think of them and wonder what kind of young adults theyve become. It was a privilege to help shape their young minds and whet their appetites for learning. I wish them all well and hope they enjoy much success in life. Merry Christmas and happy Hanukkah! With much love from their 5th grade teacher Mrs. Helen Gromadzki, The Villages, Fla. Dear Helen: Your letter was so sweet, we had to print it. We hope all of your former students have a chance to see it and possibly reconnect to let you know how their lives have turned out. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Hurting in Miami, who said her friend of 20 years married some wealthy young man and then cut off contact. You mentioned in your response that her new husband may be controlling and trying to isolate his new bride. I want to emphasize this point, especially because the woman is young and may have no experience with this type of controlling person. Please tell Miami to try to keep in touch with her friend by email or phone and let her know she is there for her. This same thing happened to a dear friend. Her new husband was wonderful to her before marriage, but afterward turned into a control freak who isolated her from her family and friends. We were trying to get her out of this toxic situation, but before we could do anything, he threatened her with a gun, and it accidentally went off, and she died.

Today, Ted Archambault and Jack Cissel are scheduled to be among those honored at the annual Pearl Harbor Day Survivors ceremony and lunch at Stumpknockers on the River, sponsored by the Fleet Reserve Association Branch/Unit 186. Archambault, of Homosassa, and Cissel, of Crystal River, are the remaining Citrus County survivors of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941. Arthur Fusco, formerly of Inverness, has moved away but is planning to attend the event, said Bob Huscher, co-organizer with his wife, Joan, of the survivors event. They have been doing this for more than 20 years, beginning with 19 survivors. In recent years theyve included survivors from Marion County. This year they expect six remaining survivors to attend. All are in their late 80s or early 90s. Archambault, who turns 95 this month, was 22 the day he received what he calls his baptism into war. He had joined the Marines in 1940 and was stationed in Cuba when he was ordered to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. He arrived Dec. 1, 1941. On that fateful Dec. 7 morning, Archambault woke up to the sounds of incoming Japanese war planes and the buglers call to arms. Amid sounds of explosions, he and his buddies scrambled to action. At one point, he saw the face of a Japanese pilot as the enemy plane flew overhead.

The Citrus County supervisor of elections conducts voterregistration drives in high schools, encourages early voting and stands ready to talk with anyone about the voting process. So shes not sure what to think of a directive issued last week by Secretary of State Ken Detzner that would make voting absentee less convenient than it is now. Detzner told elections supervisors that voters may no longer drop off absentee ballots at early voting sites. Detzner said he was citing state law that says the PATFAHERTY Staff writerBright House Networks has acknowledged a payment processing error has resulted in extra charges for some Florida customers. According to Bright House spokesman Joe Durkin, about 3,000 Florida customers who wrote personal checks to pay their Bright House Networks bills were affected. Paula Cooper of Citrus Springs was one of those residents. Her monthly Bright House bill of $140 was processed three times, resulting in a $420 charge the last thing she wanted to hear this holiday season. Durkin explained the affected customers mailed their checks to a drop box where they are retrieved, processed and deposited with Bank of America by a third-party vendor.

Associated PressALBANY, N.Y. An American fighter thats one of the few remaining still-airworthy planes to survive the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is being donated to an organization that flies World War II aircraft at living-history events across the United States. Robert Collings, executive director of the Stow, Mass.-based Collings Foundation, said that the purchase of the Curtiss P40B Warhawk from an aviation museum in England was completed this week. The plane will be disassembled and shipped to the United States, where it eventually will fly over Buffalo and other cities, with plans to participate in the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack in 2016, he said. The history that comes with it is pretty special, Collings said Friday, the day before the 72nd anniversary of the surprise attack in Hawaii that launched the U.S. into the Second World War. It was obvious that we needed to get this airplane back to America. After the attack, which came in two waves, those who were able, helped pull burning people out of the water. He said the hospitals didnt have enough beds for all the wounded and they had to lay people on the lawn. All these years later, he still remembers. He told the Chronicle in 2011, You never know the horrors of war until youre in it. Ive forgotten names and some details, but something like that you dont forget. Those on the ship who had survived the explosion were faced with a choice: burn to death or jump in the burning ocean and hope to survive. On the Arizona alone they lost almost 1,200, all in about five minutes. Jack Cissel, 91, was a 19-year-old private first class in the Army, a radar operator assigned to the E Battery, 64th Coast Artillery Division. We knew something was coming, something was going to happen, he recalled. We were issued 10 rounds of ammunition and a gas mask that we had to carry with us at all times. On that Sunday morning, Cissel was at his post at the radar station at the tip of Pearl City Peninsula, an elevated position only yards away from the 100 battleships, destroyers, cruisers and service ships in the harbor. Just a few minutes before 8 a.m., swarms of Japanese aircraft appeared and began to strafe targets and drop bombs and torpedoes. There was mass confusion amid huge black clouds of smoke and fire. We didnt know who they were; we were just a bunch of kids, Cissel told the Chroniclein 2007. We didnt know anything. All you could do was shoot your 10 rounds of ammunition; then it was total helplessness. With his pot helmet as his only protection, he fired at the enemy planes overhead, watching powerlessly as Navy battleships in Pearl Harbor were destroyed. He recalled listening to the explosions and seeing injured men fall overboard into the water and watching the West Virginia battleship get hit repeatedly. Earlier this week Cissel said he looks forward to being with other survivors at the annual event. Ill go every year that I can, he said.A2SATURDAY, DECEMBER7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/NATION 000GUOD NEW OFFICE LOCATION Announces the NEW OFFICE LOCATION NEW OFFICE LOCATION of his new practice Call 228-4975 Comprehensive foot and ankle care for the entire family.

In Washington, AP editor William Peacock and staff got word of the attack from President Franklin D. Roosevelts press secretary. In the language and style used by journalists of his era, including the use of a disparaging word to describe the Japanese that was in common use, Peacock dictated the details of the announcement. FLASH WASHINGTON White House says Japs attack Pearl Harbor. BULLETIN WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 (AP) President Roosevelt said in a statement today that the Japanese had attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, from the air. The attack of the Japanese also was made on all naval and military activities on the island of Oahu. The presidents brief statement was read to reporters by Stephen Early, presidential secretary. No further details were given immediately. At the time of the White House announcement, the Japanese ambassadors, Kichisaburo Nomura and Saburo Kurusu, were at the State Department. FLASH WASHINGTON Second air attack reported on Army and Navy bases in Manila. # First lead Japanese WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 (AP) Japanese air attacks on the American naval stronghold at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and on defense facilities at Manila were announced today by the White House. -2Only this terse announcement came from President Roosevelt immediately, but with it there could be no doubt that the Far Eastern situation had at last exploded, that the United States was at war, and that the conflict which began in Europe was spreading over the entire world. This disclosure had been accepted generally as an indication this country had all but given up hope that AmericanJapanese difficulties, arising from Japans aggression in the Far East, could be resolved by ordinary diplomatic procedure. # BULLETIN Second lead Japanese WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 (AP) Japanese airplanes today attacked American defense bases at Hawaii and Manila, and President Roosevelt ordered the Army and Navy to carry out undisclosed orders prepared for the defense of the United States. Announcing the presidents action for the protection of American territory, Presidential Secretary Stephen Early declared that so far as is known now the attacks were made wholly without warning when both nations were at peace and were delivered within an hour or so of the time that the Japanese ambassador had gone to the State Department to hand to the secretary of state Japans reply to the secretarys memo of the 26th. # Associated Press The battleship USS Arizona sinks on Dec. 7, 1941, during a Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

MiamiBaby born on side of expresswayLittle Ana Veronica couldnt wait on rush-hour traffic. So she was born Thursday afternoon in the backseat of a black Cadillac on the side of the Dolphin Expressway during rush hour in Miami. The baby was in a hurry to come out, Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Joe Sanchez told The Miami Herald Mother Ana Delia Bracho was visiting South Florida from Venezuela and wasnt due for another month. But she went into labor while traveling on the expressway around 5 p.m. The driver of the car, Michael Domenico, pulled onto an eastbound exit ramp and called 911. A MiamiDade Fire Rescue Station 40 crew and Trooper Aliek Sierra rushed to the scene. Sanchez said there was little the trooper could do but assist in the delivery. A relative cut the cord and the 5-pound, 1-ounce baby and her mother were taken to South Miami Hospital, where officials said they are recovering. From staff and wire reports From theCAPITAL Court reverses mans conviction in murder of fatherAn appeals court Friday ordered a new trial for a man convicted in the shotgun slaying of his father in 2010 in Hernando County, ruling that police violated the mans right to remain silent. Stephen Horne, now 22, was convicted of fatally shooting his father, Ivan. But a three-judge panel of the 5th District Court of Appeal found that detectives gained a confession from Horne after he had invoked his constitutional right to remain silent. We conclude that the police did not scrupulously honor Hornes unambiguous and unequivocal assertion of his right to silence and to stop the interrogation,' the appeals court ruled. Therefore, the trial court erred in denying Hornes motion to suppress. The ruling summarizes the confession, saying Horne considered his father to be a useless drug addict whom he hated because he long ago abandoned Horne and his mother. It also said that Horne repeatedly shot his father with a shotgun and then took $640 and drugs from the pockets of the slain man, splitting the money and drugs with an accomplice. Horne has been serving a life sentence at Madison Correctional Institution.Secularists hang Bill of Rights nativity bannerThe Madison, Wis.-based Freedom From Religion Foundation has brought in a seasonal display for the firstfloor rotunda of the Florida Capitol, days after the Florida Prayer Network put up a privately funded nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus Christ. The foundation, a non-profit that advocates for non-theists and promotes the separation of church and state, proclaimed its Bill of Rights nativity banner as a counter to the nativity scene. We dont mind sharing the season with Christians, but we dont like this pretense that its all about the birth of a Christian God, FFRF CoPresident Annie Laurie Gaylor said in a release. Wed vastly prefer to keep religion and irreligion out of the seat of state government. The Capitol ought be above the fray of religious divisiveness. But if public officials unwisely decide to permit religious public forums, then there must be room at the inn for nonbelievers. The foundations banner states: At this season of the Winter Solstice, we celebrate the Birth of the Unconquered Sun the TRUE reason for the season. On Tuesday, the Florida Prayer Network put up the first nativity display in modern history in the Capitol. Pam Olsen, president of the Florida Prayer Network, said the display does not reflect a state-sponsored religion. She also noted that a Jewish menorah is displayed nearby.From wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Correction The Chronicle printed the incorrect phone number for the U.S. Postal Inspection Service office in Tampa in Fridays paper.

Burglary suspect nabbed in woods A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerNearly a dozen Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputies and K-9s converged on woods near Crystal River early Friday morning to nab a burglary suspect. And, it was a sighting of the suspect by someone alerted by the CodeRED public notification system that ultimately led to the arrest of the 33-year-old man, according to Sgt. Steve Conley. Zachary Linville of Webster was arrested at 7:48 a.m. Friday and is facing charges of burglary while armed, grand theft, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, criminal mischief, burglary of a vehicle and resisting arrest. His bond is $118,000. According to Conley, Linville was at a residence on Dublin Street when the alarm in the home went off. The alarm company contacted the owner, who was away. The owner, in turn, alerted his brother, who lives near the home, asking him to check his residence. Conley said when the brother arrived at the residence he startled Linville, who took off running into the woods near the residence. Linville also reportedly dropped at least six long guns he had wrapped in a blanket, according to Conley. Sheriffs deputies arrived on the scene at 5:45 a.m. and began the search for Linville. Nearly two hours later, Conley said he encountered a man Linville reportedly had flagged down on a road for a ride. When the man asked if he (Linville) was the man deputies were searching for, saying he had been alerted via CodeRED, the man fled. CodeRED is a Citrus County Sheriffs Office emergency management alert system which lets residents know via phone calls about all kinds of emergencies. He pointed to the area of the woods where he fled and it was not even five minutes later, K-9 caught up with him, Conley said. Linville reportedly suffered some abrasions during the K-9 encounter, but was treated at the scene. I am very impressed with the work of everybody and the teamwork. It goes to show how dedicated everybody is about not only making sure we caught the suspect, but for the safety of the citizens, Conley said. Linville was transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline.com. Zachary Linville Catching snowflakes in Florida MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleFour-year-old Madalyn Ringle cups her hands to catch artificial snow flurries Friday evening during the Crystal River Christmas Tree Lighting Festival at Little Springs Park behind City Hall.

Crystal River Mayor Jim Farley recited A Visit from St. Nicholas prior to Santas arrival on a fire truck. The hosts for the three-hour festival were the city and Pilot Club of Crystal River. The event was sponsored by the Citrus County Chronicle. City stops allowing backyard chickens Associated PressDEBARY The father of an autistic boy says hell be contacting his attorney after the DeBary City Council voted to end a pilot program that allows residents to keep chickens in their backyards. Councilmembers ended the program with a 3-2 vote Wednesday. But Joseph Hart vowed to fight for the right to keep the chickens that his 3-year-old son J.J. calls ducks. Hart credited the council for starting the pilot program last year and told them his son had made significant progress since they got the chickens, which a physician recommended to help with the boys therapy. Its made a tremendous difference in J.J.s life, Hart said. His vocabulary has gone from ducks to that of a normal kid his age. The Daytona Beach News-Journalreported Councilmember Chris Carson said hed like to keep the program going for the boy. But he voted to end the pilot program, saying he didnt want to create opportunities for people to turn chickens and their eggs into a business. I dont support a program that has a door open to take advantage for commercial purposes, he said. I support J.J. Im all about the children. Its starting to become something else. The program will end on Dec. 31. Resident Leigh Corry also has chickens in her yard. The city had previously pursued a codeenforcement case against her for keeping the chickens. Chickens are really great, she said. Everyone really loves them. Her neighbor, Barry Maguire, told the council he opposes the program. From a real-estate perspective, this would undoubtedly cost some nice, hard, cold equity, he said. Some councilmembers said they werent sure there was a real desire among residents to have chickens in their yards. But Mayor Bob Garcia, who supported extending the pilot program, disagreed. He said one resident noted that people didnt want to invest in getting a permit and a legal chicken coop if they werent sure the law would be made permanent. People are not gonna step forward and build (a coop) only then to have to tear it down because they cant have it any longer, he said.

Dylan left it on a private plane. The auction also offered five lots of hand and typewritten lyric fragments found inside the guitar case. But only one of them sold.

Supervisors should not solicit return of absentee ballots at any place other than a supervisors office Detzner wrote. A supervisor of elections cannot accept delivery of a marketed absentee ballot anywhere other than his or her office Supervisors of elections statewide are complaining about the directive, saying it will hurt voter participation in their counties. Gill said in the 2012 presidential election, 885 people cast absentee ballots at Citrus Countys four early voting sites. Its very successful, she said. People love it. They love having options. I love being able to give the option. A certified poll clerk accepts the ballot and secures it. All absentee ballots are transported to the elections office each day, where they are locked up until theyre counted on election night. Gill said the issue is of an immediate concern in Pinellas County, which has a special congressional Republican primary in January and election in March. Pinellas Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark wrote to Detzner that the voters in her county cast absentee ballots not only at early voting sites, but also numerous drop box locations. Clark said the sites are secure and do not violate state law. She said she would continue accepting absentee ballots at those sites. Detzners response indicated he would permit the absentee ballot drop-off in Pinellas County as Clark outlined. But it still leaves the states other supervisors, such as Gill, wondering whether the rule will stay in place for the 2014 primaries and election. Theres been a tremendous amount of push-back on it, she said. Maybe we need to come to someplace in the middle. Gill said one local candidate has already asked for clarification on the absentee ballot issue. Gill said her advice is to take a wait-and-see approach. The voters like it, she said. I think its very safe and I hope we can continue on with it.Contact reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. the checks were processed up to three times each, he said. The vendor caught the error and Bright House and the bank are working together to reverse the process. He said the affected customers do not need to take any action. The money will be returned to their accounts, possibly by the end of this week. He said Bright House will also take care of customers who may incur insufficient funds charges due to this mistake. Unfortunately, there is never a good time for this and with the holidays its added stress, Durkin said. We apologize for that. He added if anyone sees multiple debits on their account for Bright House that are not resolved, they should contact their bank or Bright House Networks. Ive been a little upset, said Cooper, who spoke with Bright House. It could snowball; people who dont bank online might not know it happened right away. I didnt need to have an extra $280 out of my account, especially around the holidays. Cooper also expressed concern as to why it would take so long when the check clearing error happened on Dec. 3. The bank had to know about it, she said. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com. BALLOTSContinued from Page A1 BILLSContinued from Page A1 Officials spot 20 whales closer to shore Associated PressEVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK Twenty whales believed to be part of a pod found stranded in the Everglades this week were spotted Friday afternoon moving closer toward shore, a sign they may be reversing their earlier, positive course, wildlife officials said. The whales were about five nautical miles from the coast, one mile closer than Thursday. I am definitely concerned to hear about their behavior, that they are less organized, that they seem to be swimming very slowly, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration stranding coordinator Blair Mase told reporters late Thursday afternoon. They may have gotten to the point where they are exhausted. Earlier Friday, officials had been hopeful the whales were headed back to the deeper, colder waters that form their natural habitat about 20 miles out to sea. On Thursday, a Coast Guard helicopter spotted three pods of about 35 whales that had moved six miles offshore and into water about 18 feet deep. They could dive, they were swimming, and they had a straight shot to their home range, Mase said of the shortfinned pilot whales. And they didnt take it. Mase said the whales apparent movement inshore raises concerns something may be preventing them from going further out to sea, such as an illness. Eleven of the 51 whales spotted by a fishing guide Tuesday have died. Six were found dead Wednesday morning and four were euthanized. Another died Thursday. Necropsies on the deceased whales did not reveal any significant initial findings, though they did have empty stomachs, indicating their health may have been compromised. Scientists were awaiting the results of pathology tests to see whether there was any evidence of disease. According to NOAA, pilot whales have been known to carry the morbillivirus, which can cause skin lesions, pneumonia, brain and other infections. A Coast Guard flyover Friday morning spotted only seven whales swimming in 12 to 14 feet of water. Two others that appeared to be closer to shore turned out to be dolphins, Mase said. The larger group of whales could not be located. But by Friday afternoon, Mase said the seven whales had joined a larger group of 20 heading south and inshore, in about 10 to 12 feet of water. There is no land in the immediate vicinity for them to beach themselves, she said. On Wednesday, wildlife workers formed a semi-circle around the whales and used anchor chains to bang against their boats and try to herd the whales out of the shallow waters near the remote Everglades beach where they were found. Mase said it was unlikely they would move forward with herding efforts again. If theyre trying to come inshore because thats their natural instinct, and were pushing them out, were getting them more and more tired, she said. At some point, We have to stand back and let nature take its course, she said. From the start, NOAA and National Park Service officials have said the short-finned pilot whales faced significant hurdles. To get to deeper waters they faced a series of sandbanks, tributaries and patches of shallow water that Mase said were almost like a maze. Wildlife volunteers were surprised when they arrived at the stranding site Thursday and found the whales had managed to move six miles offshore on their own. Quite the surprise, Donna Buckley, a National Park Service volunteer said. Associated PressOfficials in boats monitor the scene Wednesday where dozens of pilot whales are stranded in shallow water in a remote area of Florida's Everglades National Park.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Happy or sad? Content or bored? And how many times did you smile yesterday? A panel of experts thinks Uncle Sam should be more in touch with our feelings. By gauging happiness, thered be more to consider than cold hard cash when deciding matters that affect daily lives, according to a report this week from the National Academy of Sciences, which advises the government. The panel of economists, psychologists and other experts assembled by the academy recommended that federal statistics and surveys, which normally deal with income, spending, health and housing, include a few extra questions on happiness. You want to know how people are doing? said panel chairman Arthur Stone, a professor of psychology at New Yorks Stony Brook University. One of things you may want to do is ask them. Asking how people feel can be as important as how much they are spending, Stone said. For example, economists have something they call the misery index which adds the unemployment and inflation rates, but doesnt include how people feel. If you want to know misery, the question to ask is how much suffering is going on, he said. The panel suggests a series of questions to measure daily happiness and general well-being, asking how often you smiled, were stressed, laughed or were in pain. Example questions ranged from a simple yesno Yesterday, did you spend time with friends or family? to a more complex 1-10 rating for Overall, how satisfied are you with your life nowadays? Over the past decade, these types of questions have shown to be valid scientifically, said Carol Graham, a Brookings Institution economist who was on the panel. The report said the answers can help governments shape policy on basic benefits, such as retirement age and pensions, care for the chronic and terminally ill, unemployment and working conditions. It cited a study by one of the Nobel Prize-winning panelists that showed peoples feelings about commuting problems helped officials decided whether or not to create commuter toll lanes on highways. In terms of collecting happiness data, the United States government is a bit of a laggard behind other industrial nations, said John Helliwell, an economist who co-directs an institute that studies wellbeing at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. In one of the few surveys where the government does ask, were a pretty happy nation. Last year, about 87 percent of Americans considered themselves very happy or pretty happy. But were far behind No. 1 Denmark, a host of northern European countries, Canada, Israel and Mexico. The United States ranked 17th in a world happiness ranking report directed by Helliwell, which was based on international surveys and came out in September. When governments and academics study happiness they find that money isnt everything. Many of the richest countries, including the United States, werent in the Top 10 in self-reported happiness in the report. Having no money is terrible for everything, said Graham, author of several books on the economics and measuring of happiness. But after people make a comfortable amount of money, it doesnt add too much to happiness, she said.

Icy storm slams Southwest Associated PressDALLAS Freezing rain and stinging winds slammed the Southwest Friday and made a strangely blank landscape out of normally sundrenched North Texas: mostly empty highways covered in a sometimes impassable frost, closed schools and businesses, and millions of residents hunkered down for icy conditions expected to last through the weekend. Earlier this week, many in Texas were basking in spring-like temperatures that hit the 80s. But by Thursday, Texas was facing the same wintry blast that has slammed much of the U.S., bringing frigid temperatures, ice and snow. The weather forced the cancellation of Sundays Dallas Marathon, which was expected to draw 25,000 runners, some of whom had trained for months. A quarter of a million customers in North Texas were left without power, and many businesses told employees to stay home to avoid the slick roads. Rob Yates, 44, of the Dallas suburb of Rowlett, had trained for four months to participate in the halfmarathon Sunday his first time competing at that distance. His wife and three children were going to attend the race to volunteer and cheer him on, he said. Now, Ill probably be catching up on some work, Yates said, laughing. Yates spent Friday at home with his children, who were outside pulling off icicles and wishing more snow had fallen. But Yates, originally from near Manchester, England, said he stayed inside with his wife. Its kind of unusual weather for Dallas, so theyre just having fun with it, Yates said. Me and my wife adults are not particularly impressed with it. Fridays storm stretched from South Texas, where anxious residents bagged outdoor plants to protect them from the cold, through the Midwest and Ohio Valley and up into northern New England and the Canadian Maritimes. In California, four people died of hypothermia in the San Francisco Bay Area as the region dealt with freezing temperatures, according to the Santa Clara County coroners office. Rosie Dominguez, a spokeswoman for the office, confirmed the deaths and their cause but provided no further information. Dominguez referred questions to a county spokeswoman, who did not immediately return a phone call Friday afternoon. Associated PressA pedestrian walks down the street Thursday after heavy snowfall moved through the region in Carbondale, Ill. A big chunk of the U.S. is getting a blast of frigid temperatures, sleet, snow and ice. Experts urge feds to measure happiness Associated PressPeople laugh as they take part in a group exercise during a laughter yoga class in June in St. Albans, England.

Interestrates 000GUA6 Stock market jumps after strong jobs report Associated PressNEW YORK Good news was finally good news for the stock market on Friday. Stocks rose sharply after the government reported a fourth straight month of solid U.S. job gains, the latest encouraging sign for the economy. The strengthening job market focused investors on the nations improving economy instead of concerns about the Federal Reserves stimulus, snapping a five-day losing streak for stocks. Stocks had been falling this week after a string of positive economic reports made investors worry that the Fed would soon pull back on its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases, which have kept long-term interest rates low and supported the stock market. Now that hiring is showing consistent strength, investors seem to be letting go of their worry that the economy isnt ready for the Fed to start weaning the U.S. off that stimulus. The jobs report was outstanding, said Randy Frederick, a director of trading and derivatives at Charles Schwab. Its refreshing to see the markets react positively, because weve been in a mode for so long of good news is bad news. Employers added 203,000 jobs last month after adding 200,000 in October, the Labor Department announced before the U.S. stock market opened on Friday. Novembers job gain helped lower the unemployment rate to 7 percent from 7.3 percent in October. Stocks jumped at the open and moved higher throughout the day. The Dow Jones industrial average rose by as much as 200 points in early afternoon trading before easing back slightly before the close. Sears to spin off Lands End businessHOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. Sears Holdings Corp. said Friday that it will spin off its Lands End clothing business as a separate company by distributing stock to the retailers shareholders. Its the latest move by the struggling retailer to turn around its results as it faces wider losses and increasingly displeased investors.FDA approves breakthrough hepatitis C drugWASHINGTON Gilead Sciences Inc. says the federal government has approved its highly anticipated hepatitis C drug that is expected to offer a faster cure to millions of people infected with the liver-destroying virus. The Food and Drug Administration approved the pill Sovaldi as a daily treatment in combination with older drugs to treat the major forms of hepatitis C. Current treatments for hepatitis C can take up to a year of therapy and only cure three out of four patients. Sovaldi is a daily pill that cures roughly 90 percent of patients in just 12 weeks, according to company studies. The approval comes as the federal government urges baby boomers to get tested for the disease. Apple wants Samsung to pay $22M for legal billsSAN JOSE, Calif. Apple wants Samsung Electronics to pay $22 million of the legal bills that the iPhone and iPad maker has rung up so far defending its mobile device patents in a courtroom battle. The money sought in documents filed Thursday would be in addition to the $930 million in damages that juries decided Samsung owes Apple Inc. after hearing evidence of patent infringement in two separate trials held in a San Jose, Calif., federal court during the past 15 months. The latest verdict was handed down last month. Apple is asking U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh to order Samsung to pay $15.7 million in attorney fees. That would cover less than onethird of the more than $60 million that Apple says it owes its lawyers in the case. Apple also wants Samsung to reimburse its lawyers for $6.2 million in various expenses. A Jan. 30 hearing has been scheduled to examine Apples requests. Lawyers for both Apple and Samsung Electronics Co. figure to make millions of dollars more from the skirmishing between the leading makers of smartphones.

Craze for coveted craft brews creates black market Associated PressMONTPELIER, Vt. Fancy a pint of Pliny the Elder or Heady Topper double India pale ales, but cant find it in your neighborhood? Get out your wallet. As craft brews gain an intense following, a black market bloomed in which opportunists sell for hundreds of dollars top-rated beers that are hard to find, in short supply, expensive or illegal to ship. In Vermont, a Burlington woman was charged recently with selling five cases of the popular Heady Topper beer for $825 on Craigslist, which brought about mixed feelings for its brewer. Its a compliment in an odd way, said Jen Kimmich, owner of The Alchemist brewery in Waterbury, which produces Heady Topper. The hoppy concoction, which retails for $3 a can and $72 a case, was recently ranked No. 1 by Beer Advocate magazine out of the top 250 beers in the world. But at the same time, she added, we dont want to see the consumer being cheated by paying too much and getting a product that hasnt been taken care of properly. The beer is so popular that The Alchemist recently closed its retail shop in Waterbury, Vt., to appease neighbors concerned about traffic. In the weeks since, a half a dozen posts have appeared on Craigslist including from southern California, Chicago, and Boston clamoring for the stuff. Craigslist did not respond to a message seeking comment. Beer geeks often trade coveted craft brews with no money changing hands to get hard-to-find beers that may only be sold in certain states or countries, in limited amounts or are only in draft form. To get them might require a beer mule, who will transport the brews to the consumer, or someone who will buy them from the brewery and ship them, said Joe Tucker, executive director of the RateBeer website.

OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2013 Stay awake Citrus CountyCitrus County, it is time to wake up. We had a small awakening a few months back when for a brief moment, we accidentally voted a glimmer of hope into the local government a common sense commissioner who knows right from wrong. Scott Adams, along with others, knows when something is wrong. We voted him in with the hope of getting something done in the voters best interest. He is trying to do just that by attempting to give us true representation. This is not easy. It shows by his actions of not going the customary way of spending the problems away as county bureaucracy is accustomed to with our money. Have we forgotten already? Do we take a second to ask why? Do we ask if there is a better way? I see it as the commissioners and the rest of our ever growing bigger local government ensuring themselves plenty of tax dollars to continue to control the citizenry. I cannot help but believe that our elected and appointed bureaucracy know better, but as government will, prefer to serve themselves with no explanation or no reason. Except for one. Mr Adams seems to be alone, but he is not. There are many like myself who recognize we are being bullied into submission by government and we have a hope in Scott Adams. Please, we must try to awaken from the government induced coma and recognize that for whatever reason there is the hope of someone on the inside for a change with better intentions for we the people. Government, as written in our Constitution, was to be for the people, has become against the people. Todays government (for the most part) is against the people. Government has become a big enterprise that takes from its people to make itself bigger and more powerful no matter how many unconstitutional laws it twists and breaks with the inane laws and rules it creates.C.W. Krantz Floral City For a guy whose presidency was supposed to be on life support, Barack Obama has certainly had a productive couple of weeks. With his poll numbers sinking toward George W. Bush territory 53 percent in a recent CNN survey said hes not a strong or decisive leader Obama took bold action on two issues that dramatized the power of the presidency. One was about getting Congress to act, the other about preventing World War III. But first, a few words about Obamas political fortunes: With reports surfacing about great improvements in the healthcare.gov websites performance, what many have described as the nadir of Obamas presidency may prove a short-term phenomenon. Stone partisans aside, Americans want their presidents to succeed. With strong majorities saying they continue to like Obama personally, and to believe that he cares about people like them, he retains a reservoir of good will to sustain him until the positive effects of the Affordable Care Act become clearer. However, if people doubt that Obama has the wherewithal to manage the gigantic enterprise that is the federal government, well no wonder. Like many intellectuals and nearly all writers his Dreams from My Father is a real book, not a ghostwritten campaign bio Obama confuses saying something with doing something. He also has a terrible time admitting error another occupational trait, I assure you. His failure to make sure that somebody with real-world management skills supervised the healthcare.gov rollout is the most incomprehensible blunder of his presidency. Had the site run properly, Obamas ballyhooed lie about people keeping their insurance coverage more of an opportunistic campaign exaggeration, actually wouldnt have caused a great ruckus, because most people whose insurance companies dumped them would have been mollified to learn that theyre getting a better deal. People took Obamas falsehood personally, unlike, say, George W. Bushs deceptive assurances that hed received no warning about 9/11, or his phony certitude about Saddam Husseins imaginary WMDs. Thats because nothing touches them more directly than health insurance. (Although talking about botched White House initiatives, how about the bleeping Iraq War?) Also, because its personal, theyre apt to forgive Obama when the law starts working for them. But slowly, one at a time, like the way they forgave Bill Clinton. Most also see that if Obama has weaknesses, he also has formidable strengths. Agreeing with Sen. Harry Reid to do away with Senate rules allowing Republicans to filibuster White House appointees took real political courage. Will Republicans retaliate when they get the chance? Probably. And that would be worse than total congressional paralysis how? Most people dont especially give a hoot about the hallowed traditions of the U.S. Senate, so if modifying the filibuster rule helps Congress get something done, theyre OK with it. The Senates an intrinsically conservative institution anyway what with thinly populated red states like Wyoming and Alaska having as much power as New York and California so its not as if majority rule there threatens the foundations of the republic. Meanwhile, Washington Monthlys Martin Longman noticed that even if it did nothing else, enhancing the presidents power to make executive appointments also gives him a freer hand to remove underperforming cabinet members like Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Not that its Obamas practice to seek scapegoats, but his seeming passivity during the healthcare.gov fiasco hasnt helped him, either. You can bet President Trump would have fired somebody! Longman also suspects that the GOPs muted response to the Senate rule change Minority Leader Mitch McConnell charged only that Democrats wanted to distract people from Obamacare could indicate that the Republicans are truly on another one of their Moby Dick adventures, like Whitewater, like the White House Travel Office, like Vince Foster, like laffaire Lewinsky, like Saddams WMD, like Fast and Furious, like Solyndra, like the New Black Panther Party, like Benghazi, and like the most recent government shutdown. Its a dumb strategy: If Obamacare fails, it fails. If not, what have they got? This brings us to the remarkable diplomatic breakthrough with Iran: potentially the Middle Eastern equivalent of the fall of the Berlin Wall. If youve heeded Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and his chorus of American neoconservatives, Iran has been three months away from acquiring nuclear weapons for the past 20 years. And yet, despite the odiousness of its theocratic regime, this still hasnt happened. Under its new president, Iran has agreed to shut down the centrifuges and submit to inspections in exchange for reduced sanctions. The Netanyahu chorus invokes Chamberlain at Munich, basically the only song they know how to sing. But President Obama grasps one big thing: The U.S. and its allies are exponentially more powerful than Iran. Worst case, he gets embarrassed and Iran goes back to furtively building nukes except more isolated now than ever. If Obamas willing to risk it, then we should be, too.Arkansas Times columnist Gene Lyons is a National Magazine Award winner and co-author of The Hunting of the President (St. Martins Press, 2000).

The next day, within an hour of President Roosevelts Day of Infamy speech, Congress declared war on Japan. The United States had been thrust into World War II, a war which would give rise to another term the Greatest Generation. This generation, which came of age during the Great Depression, faced an even greater challenge in defeating the Axis powers. Today, only a handful of the Greatest Generation are still with us today, and even fewer of those who survived the attack on Pearl Harbor. Citrus County is fortunate to have two survivors of Pearl Harbor Day Ted Archambault and Jack Cissel. Each year, the Fleet Reserve Association Branch/Unit 186 hosts a luncheon for these great Americans to honor them for their service to our country. We would urge you today to take a moment to remember those who lost their lives 72 years ago and to consider the impact the Greatest Generation has had on our lives today. The victory over Japan, Germany and Italy in World War II installed the United States as a world power. Today, the rest of the world still looks to us for leadership and much of that is a credit to that generation. THE ISSUE:Pearl Harbor Day.OUR OPINION:Salute to the Greatest Generation.

I hope that all the folks who live on the bay and surrounding areas will also take note. That means that they also have to follow the rules.

I would like to point out that there is another treatment available for prostate cancer that was not covered in any of the articles of that day proton therapy. Proton therapy is similar to radiation therapy, but uses beamed protons instead of beamed X-rays, with the resulting collateral damage being less due to the protons dispersing their energy at the targeted location instead of passing completely through the body. But rather than discussing the physics involved, I really want to state that any man diagnosed with prostate cancer should take the time and effort to explore all the treatment options open to them. On one hand, all the current available treatments seem to have credible cure rates as far at the cancer itself is concerned. On the other hand, none of them can guarantee a successful outcome with no side effects, i.e. impotence or incontinence. And there is no second chance. Once you select a treatment option, you are going to live with the results for the rest of your life. It is extremely important to gather as much information as possible before making that decision. I have observed that doctors will tend to promote treatments that they have a selfinterest in and minimize the potential problems. Discussions with other men who have experienced each treatment gives valuable insight into what you might expect as an outcome. It was this process that led me to discover proton therapy. In order to provide proton therapy treatment you need a $100 million-plus treatment center, making it too expensive to be provided locally. There are currently 11 such centers in the U.S., with another nine either under construction or in the planning stage. They are located in such prestigious institutions as the MD Anderson Cancer center in Houston, Mass General Hospital in Boston and the University of Floridas Medical center in Jacksonville. The first treatment facility was opened in 1991 by Loma Linda University in California. The University of Floridas Proton Therapy Institute (UFPTI) was opened in 2006 and to date has treated more than 3,300 men for prostate cancer, with current cure rates of 99 percent for men diagnosed with low-risk cancer and 97 percent for those with intermediate risk. These treatments are FDA and Medicare approved. Why am writing this? It has been my experience that unless some other prostate cancer veteran tells you about proton therapy, you wont hear about it. Why should you consider it? Because it works with an outcome that minimizes the potential bad side effects that can occur with prostate cancer treatment. How do I know this? Because Ive been through it, and I feel no different today than I did two years ago before I heard the words youve got prostate cancer. My PSA has gone from 5.7 before treatment to 1.3 today and is still heading down, and I feel great. So, if you or someone you know is dealing with prostate cancer, do some research on proton therapy. Information is available online at various website such as www.protontherapy.org, www.floridaproton. com, or www.protonbob.com. If you contact the UFPTI, they will send you a list of former patients that you can call or email for information. You owe it to yourself to explore all your available options.Howard Geer Crystal RiverProud to be a tea party patriotI consider myself a tea party patriot and I make no apologies for it. This morning, I read in the letters to the editor that some people in this community think people like me are destroying America. This comes as a surprise to me because at no time have I ever considered myself a radical who is intent on destroying this country. Indeed, on at least three occasions I have sworn an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. The first time was when I became a naturalized citizen in 1964. The second time was when I became employed by the U.S. Department of Commerce in 1974, and then again in 1981, when I became an employee of Miami-Dade County government. I have served my country and my local community with honor and distinction. I served in the way that I was taught in 11th-grade American history class and in seventhgrade civics (the only two classes I ever really paid attention to while in grade school). The lesson I remember the most in those classes was that in this country, elected officials are supposed to be the servants of the people, not the other way around. That is why I am totally dismayed by the statement made by Kathy Dobronyi in a letter to the editor, which claims that the tea party is intent on destroying America with our radical, ultra-conservative behavior. While it is true that back in 1776 that may have been a radical concept of the time, I want to believe that after 230 years or so, that way of thinking had become fairly mainstream. I could never have expected that at this late stage of my life, I would be accused by someone of being a radical subversive who wants to destroy America. Dobryonyl, I can assure you that I am not some nutcase who goes around wearing a triangular hat and carrying a smoothbore musket at my side. I am a tea party patriot, and I say that without any trepidation or regret. I dont like when other people label me, because doing so oversimplifies who I am and what I do. I dont like to do it to others because it is inherently unfair to them. So I will resist the temptation to label you and to make baseless accusations about your love of your country. I truly believe that you probably love this country as much as I do. But to make it easy for you to understand, I will let you call me a tea party member, even though I pay no dues, and I dont belong to any organized group. I am merely one of millions of Americans who believe that our great nation is based on the simple premise the government was created by the people and for the people. I am one who believes that elected officials should be servants to the public, and not the other way around. I also believe that elected officials should be responsible stewards of the peoples money. At what point did this way of thinking become radical and subversive? Ms. Dobryonyl, I can assure you I have no intention of destroying America. My only intent is to hold our elected officials accountable for what they do. That is what our nation is based on, and that is the oath that I have pledged to uphold on a number of occasions. For you see I take my oaths very seriously.Eloy Nuez Inverness

In eagles vs. energy, wind winsWASHINGTON Under pressure from the windpower industry, the Obama administration said Friday it will allow companies to kill or injure eagles without the fear of prosecution for up to three decades. The new rule is designed to address environmental consequences that stand in the way of the nations wind energy rush: the dozens of bald and golden eagles being killed each year by the giant, spinning blades of wind turbines. The new rule will provide legal protection for the lifespan of wind farms and other projects if companies obtain permits and make efforts to avoid killing protected birds. Companies would have to take additional measures if they killed or injured more eagles than they had estimated they would, or if new information suggested that eagle populations were being affected. The permits would be reviewed every five years, and companies would have to submit reports of how many eagles they killed.Doctor used razor in suicide attemptSALT LAKE CITY A defense attorney is crediting jailers with saving the life of a Utah doctor who tried to kill himself after he was recently convicted of leaving his heavily drugged wife to die in a bathtub to carry on an affair with another woman. Martin MacNeill was bleeding heavily after he used a disposable razor to cut a major artery around 5 p.m. Thursday, jail officials said Friday after initially refusing to say how the doctor tried to commit suicide.

Thousands in UK face another day of floodingLONDON Hundreds of people in Britain mopped up flooded homes on Friday after a powerful storm that scoured northern Europe with hurricane-force gusts kicked up the biggest tidal surge in 60 years, swamping stretches of shoreline. The rising seas prompted evacuations along the eastern English coast, with 1,400 properties flooded and at least a half-dozen communities at great risk of exceptionally high tides and large waves. Accidents linked to the storm that roared across Europe Thursday have killed at least eight people, from Britain to Sweden, Denmark and Poland. Scores of flights were canceledat airports in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Germany and Poland. More than 1,000 people spent the night at Copenhagen airport where 200 flights were canceled Thursday and about 70 Friday.Pilot in crash may have had fake licenseMOSCOW The Russian pilot who sent a Boeing 737 into a near-vertical dive, killing all 50 people on board, might have had a fake license, Russian investigators said Friday. Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said his team believes that some pilots working for small regional airlines in Russia have not been properly trained but managed to get fake licenses in centers certified by the countrys aviation agency. Markin said the pilot who sent the Boeing 737 into a dive after an aborted first landing attempt in the city of Kazan had received his license from a small training center that has since been shut down.Report: Death toll up to 280 in Central African RepublicBANGUI, Central African Republic Christian civilians fled by the thousands to the airport guarded by French forces in this chaotic capital Friday as the mostly Muslim armed fighters who have ruled the country since March hunted door-to-door for their enemies and the death toll from inter-communal violence increased to 280 people. Bodies lay decomposing along the roads in a capital too dangerous for many to collect the corpses. The arrival of additional French troops and equipment came as the capital teetered on the brink of total anarchy and represented the greatest hope for many Central Africans. Rebel leader-turnedpresident Michel Djotodia appealed for calm, even as his residence and that of the prime minister were looted and vandalized by the fighters Thursday. He announced a dusk-to-dawn curfew. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressA well-wisher writes a message Friday on a poster of Nelson Mandela on which he and others have written their messages of condolence and support, in the street outside his old house in Soweto, Johannesburg, South Africa. Associated PressMEXICO CITY Six people being tested for possible radiation exposure in a hospital in central Mexico are suspects in the theft of highly radioactive cobalt-60, a government official said Friday. The official said the six were arrested Thursday and taken to the general hospital in Pachuca for observation and testing for radiation exposure. Once they are cleared, they will be turned over to federal authorities in connection with the case of a cargo truck stolen Monday at gunpoint that was carrying the extremely dangerous material. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. He did not specify how the six were allegedly involved in the theft. Hidalgo state Health Minister Pedro Luis Noble said Friday that the six suffered from skin irritations and dizziness, but that none are in grave condition and may be released soon. Only one was vomiting, a sign of radiation poisoning. But based on the tests, none are showing immediatesigns of radiation poisoning, Noble told Foro TV. The cobalt-60 theft triggered alerts in six Mexican states and Mexico City, as well as international notifications to the U.S. and the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna. It raised concerns that the material could have been stolen to make a dirty bomb, a conventional explosive that disseminates radioactive material. The atomic energy agency said the cobalt has an activity of 3,000 curies, or Category 1, meaning it would probably be fatal to be close to this amount of unshielded radioactive material for a period in the range of a few minutes to an hour. But Mexican officials said the thieves seemed to have targeted the cargo truck with moveable platform and crane, and likely didnt know about the dangerous cargo. The government official would not give details or location of Thursdays arrest nor names or ages of the suspects. Federal police blocked access Friday to the hospital where the six were held.

Associated PressOKLAHOMA CITY Whether youre ready to ship that holiday package across the country or waiting for your next shipment of cooking grease, nows not the best time to be in a hurry. Businesses small and large are waiting for pickups and consumers across the land are receiving notices that their packages will be delayed because of a massive, icy blast that will eventually hit from coast-to-coast. For people who rely on the shipping industry, the storm comes at the worst time: the height of the holiday mailing season. Really with this event, we are looking at it almost like we would a hurricane, said Lucas McDonald, a senior emergency manager for Walmart Stores Inc. Knowing hazardous conditions were coming, the company shipped extra merchandise to stores ahead of the storm. As we get to this point, in some cases we have had to take our drivers off the road, and so thats OK because weve already got the merchandise there, said McDonald, a former TV meteorologist. Carlos Suarez, who usually shops online, received a notice Thursday that a video game he ordered on Amazon couldnt be delivered within two days contrary to the $80 fee he pays each year to guarantee rapid deliveries. In this situation it was just a dumb video game, Suarez said. We sometimes order medicine through the mail and that could have been a little more frustrating. Memphis, Tenn.,-based FedEx, too, notified customers of delays, taking cues from a team of 15 meteorologists to highlight on its website the winter storm that started along the west coast and reached Ohio and western Pennsylvania on Friday. Ice storm snarling deliveries nationwide Associated PressJOHANNESBURG Themba Radebe spun slowly in a circle. First he pointed his cellphone camera at a group of children chanting Nelson Mandelas name as they waved posters of the anti-apartheid champion. Then pivoting to his right, Radebe aimed his camera at a swaying group of adults who sang in Zulu while rocking and clapping. A day after Mandelas death at 95, South Africans of all colors erupted in song, dance and tears Friday in emotional celebrations of the life of the man who bridged this countrys black-white divide and helped avert a race war. I dont think Mr. Mandela belonged to black people, said Alex Freilingsdorf, a Toyota executive at a Soweto dealership. He belonged to South Africa. Freilingsdorf and other white South Africans mingled among the hundreds of blacks gathered outside a home where Mandela lived as a young lawyer in the rough and tumble Soweto township. The mood was simultaneously celebratory and somber at the impromptu street festival where Radebe filmed scenes to share with his family. Im sorry, Im too emotional. The tears flow too easily, said the balding 60-year-old, his eyes sparkling with tears as he reflected on how South Africas race relations have improved not perfect, but much better compared with his childhood in the black township. This is a celebration of the death, because we knew he was an old man, Radebe said. He brought a lot of changes to our community, because I grew up in apartheid. It was a very bad situation. At a service in Cape Town, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a Nobel laureate like Mandela and himself a monumental figure in the struggle against apartheid, called on South Africas 51 million people to embrace the values of unity and democracy that Mandela embodied. At Mandelas home in the leafy Johannesburg neighborhood of Houghton, where he spent his last sickly months, a multi-racial crowd paid tribute. As a dozen doves were released into the sky, people sang tribal songs, the national anthem, God Bless Africa the anthem of the anti-apartheid struggle and Christian hymns. He will rule the universe with God, proclaimed a poster..

The Hurricanes (4-1 overall, 1-1 in district play) held a 45-43 lead with three minutes remaining, but Dunnellons Andre Hairston scored nine of his 21 points in the fourth quarter and Willie Robinson connected on 8 of 9 free throws down the stretch to put it away for the Tigers (5-2, 1-0). Robinson hit a pair to tie it up, then lofted a high feed to Hairston down low, who scored while getting fouled and hit the free throw for a three-point Dunnellon lead. Citrus senior point guard Devin Pryor (team-high 21 points) converted a pair of free throws, but the Tigers pulled away down the stretch on the back of Robinsons success at the line and Hairstons strength inside. Of Robinson, Citrus head coach Tom Densmore said, He couldnt miss. And late in the game, thats the difference. Dunnellon head coach Travis Licht agreed. If he doesnt make those free throws, we dont win the game, Licht said. That was clutch. Hes a senior and our leader, and I wouldnt want anyone else at the line. The game was a tale of quarters, as the two teams took turns dominating each period. Citrus rushed out to a 17-9 lead after one quarter, but Dunnellon stormed back to outscore the Hurricanes 22-6in the second to take a 31-23 lead at the half. Citrus went 3 of 15 from the three-point line in the first half, and clearly readjusted their game plan at the break, coming out to outscore Dunnellon 14-5 in the third quarter. We refocused at halftime, the threes werent falling, and we wanted to get the ball to the rim, and maybe get to the foul He couldnt miss late ... thats the differenceTom DensmoreCitrus coach said of Dunnellons Willie Robinsons free throw shooting.

RISAK CorrespondentLECANTO Five minutes gone, and Crystal River held a 4-2 lead over host Lecanto in the two teams District 5A-6 girls basketball battle. Pirates coach Jason Rodgers switched his defense from a 2-1-2 zone to apply more backcourt pressure and, during the final 2 1/2 minutes of the opening quarter, Crystal River outscored the Panthers 15-0. Game over, for all intents and purposes. The final score Friday ended at 44-9, but that 19-2 first-quarter burst, combined with a 17-3 second, sealed the outcome and kept Crystal River unbeaten at 9-0 overall, 2-0 in 5A-6. A very young and inexperienced Lecanto squad fell to 1-9 overall, 0-2 in district play. We went through the same thing against North Marion (Wednesday), Rodgers said. We started out a little rough. How ever they played during those first five minutes, it changed quickly. Junior forward Jasmyne Eason got things going with backto-back steals that led quick baskets, both coming with the pressure defense in place. A couple more Lecanto turnovers the Panthers had 13 in the first quarter and 25 by halftime did even more damage, courtesy of Kiersten Croyle and Brianna Richardson. A Croyle three-pointer pushed the Pirates lead to 11-2, and Richardson followed with two more triples, nine points scored in a 1:05 span. Another Eason basket she had eight in the quarter, nine for the game put it at 19-2 entering the second quarter. Crystal River finished with six three-pointers in the game, two of them coming in the second quarter. Croyles 13 points paced the Pirates, with Katelyn Hannigan and Richardson each contributing six. DeeAnna Moehring scored all nine of Lecantos points. Asked if her team, which collected its first win Thursday, 59-49 over Weeki Wachee, was improving, Lecanto coach Brittany Szunko answered, Not consistently yet. But were working on it. Tale of the half Lecanto boys use big outburst to run past Crystal River 75-49SEANARNOLD CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER It was a tale of two halves Friday in the Crystal River gym, where a defensive struggle made way to a second-half offensive outpouring, but Lecanto proved itself adept in all phases and pulled itself back into strong contention for the top seed in District 5A-6. On the back of 49 combined points from juniors Darius Sawyer and Brandon Burich, the Panthers overcame 17 turnovers and shot 70 percent from the field to upend the Pirates 75-49 in boys hoops action. An especially active Burich, a 6-foot-8 forward, had 17 second-half points in notching 24 on the night, and turned in an impressive all-around outing with a game-high 10 rebounds and four steals.

Rutgers once promising season has come down to this: win against South Florida or stay home and skip the bowl circuit. A month ago, becoming bowl eligible seemed like a formality for the Scarlet Knights (5-6, 2-5 American Athletic Conference). Consecutive losses to Cincinnati, No. 15 Central Florida and Connecticut, however, have put Rutgers into a mustwin scenario against South Florida (2-9, 2-5) heading into tonights game. For South Florida, the game is a chance to play the spoiler and end coach Willie Taggarts first season on a good note. Rutgers is the one under pressure. After starting the season with a 4-1 record, it has lost five of six to put an eighth bowl bid in nine years in jeopardy. Theres a sense of heightened urgency now because we know this is our last chance, said senior quarterback Chas Dodd, who replaced Gary Nova as the starter last week. We want to get to that bowl game. We havent given up on that. The slide has second-year coach Kyle Flood feeling some heat in what might be the universitys last football game before entering the Big Ten Conference next season. We want to get this win, Dodd said. We want to keep our season going. Flood said his only focus this week is on the game, not the bowl situation. If Rutgers were to win, it probably would receive a bid to either the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., on Jan. 4 or the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium on Dec. 28. Flood said the mood of his team earlier this week was good. Theres not a lot of happiness when youre 5-6, but I see a lot of determination in their eyes and a lot of anxiousness to get back to work to be 1-0, he said. Taggart and his players are more interested in ending a five-game losing streak rather than being spoilers. It would be huge. Huge for our seniors, first and foremost, Taggart said. These guys have been through so much throughout their careers. A lot of changes, not a lot of consistency. Itll be big for them to leave here with something to be happy about. UCF visits SMU with BCS bid in hand Associated PressDALLAS No. 15 UCF has already secured the schools first BCS bid. So the Knights will move on to other things when they finish the regular season Saturday at SMU. Theres a chance for the 33-yearold programs first eight-game winning streak, and an outright title and undefeated league record in the first season of the American Athletic Conference. So theres that to focus on after UCF (10-1, 7-0 AAC) locked up the BCS trip thanks to No. 19 Louisvilles 31-24 overtime victory at Cincinnati on Thursday. When youre doing real good, the easiest thing to do is lose focus, said receiver Rannell Hall, who had four long kickoff returns when the Knights clinched at least tie for the conference title with a 23-20 win over rival South Florida last week. Its late in the season, bodies being weak. With a loss to SMU, the Knights would tie the Cardinals for the league title. UCF has the tiebreaker after beating Louisville 38-35 in October. I do care that were getting ready for SMU as far as winning the championship outright, coach George OLeary said. Weve got one left and we need to get down to Dallas and get done what we need to get done. SMU (5-6, 4-3) is trying to extend a school-record bowl streak to five seasons. Its all the motivation, said quarterback Neal Burcham, a redshirt freshman who made his first career start last week against Houston after Garrett Gilbert sprained his left knee. We have one game left, hopefully two games left. Were going to take this game as win or go home. Associated PressCentral Florida wide receiver J.J. Worton and the Knights take on SMU today in Dallas. UCF can finish an undefeated run through the ACC. Auburn, Mizzou up for SEC title game Associated PressATLANTA Auburn and Missouri are competing for the Southeastern Conference title Saturday, and possibly a chance to play for the national championship. Yet both teams have to guard against a letdown. As ludicrous as that might sound, Auburn and Missouri are coming off emotionally charged victories last week that gave each coach a reason to fret just a bit. No. 3 Auburn (11-1, 7-1 SEC) used one of the greatest finishing plays in college football history a 109-yard return of a missed field goal with no time on the clock to beat two-time defending national champion Alabama in the Iron Bowl for the West Division title. No. 5 Missouri (11-1, 7-1) won the East with a thrilling victory of its own, knocking off Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M 28-21. The challenge of any coach, the leadership of the team, the coaching staff, everybody, is can you stay focused to do what you do day-to-day to play your best? Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said Friday at the Georgia Dome, where each team held its final workout. I would like to think were doing all the right things. Weve done it all year long. Auburn must get past one of the most improbable victories ever, beating its biggest rival in a game that likely eliminated the Crimson Tide from its quest for an unprecedented third straight national title. Auburn coach Gus Malzahn watched the frenzied crowd storm the field at JordanHare Stadium, then urged his team to get right back to work. The challenge with emotional wins like that is youve got to put it behind you, he said. Associated PressAuburn quarterback Nick Marshall salutes fans on Nov. 30 after scoring against Alabama on a 45-yard touchdown run in Auburn, Ala. Marshall has made clutch plays and run the No. 3 Tigers offense with increasing proficiency in win after win. Big Ten game a classic matchup No. 2 OSU, No. 10 MSU meet today Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS The Big Ten championship game already looks like a classic contest. No. 2 Ohio State comes to Indianapolis with its trendy, up-tempo offense and a powerful old-style ground game that has been virtually unstoppable. No. 10 Michigan State counters with its typically stout defense, which doesnt allow many opposing offenses to get in sync. Yes, its time to settle in for Saturday night. Its miserable, Buckeyes offensive coordinator Tom Herman said jokingly this week. But this is why you coach. These are the games your competitive nature can come out a little bit and say, Im going to have my offense, my checkers, my pieces are going to be more prepared and play harder and longer and with better technique and effort than yours. The stakes couldnt be higher: To the winner goes an all-expenses paid bowl trip to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl. And if the Buckeyes (12-0) extend their school record winning streak, the nations longest, to 25, the reward may be even greater what is likely to be their fourth appearance in the BCS title game, their first with twotime national champion coach Urban Meyer. But few teams pose a bigger obstacle than the Spartans (11-1). A year ago, they fell just short of upsetting the Buckeyes, falling 17-16 in the conference opener. This year, the Spartans have been even stingier. They lead the nation in total yards allowed (237.7 per game) and fewest yards rushing (64.8), and Michigan State also has the No. 1 passing efficiency defense (91.8). If No. 1 Noles beat Duke, theyre in national title game Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Duke cornerback Ross Cockrell is not offended the No. 20 Blue Devils are a 29-point underdog to Jameis Winston and top-ranked Florida State for Saturday nights ACC championship game. Florida State has been blowing everybody out, he said. The Seminoles (12-0, 8-0) have beaten opponents on average 54-11 this season behind Winston, who set ACC freshman records by throwing for 3,490 yards and 35 touchdowns. They have defeated all but one of their opponents by at least 27 points. Now all that stands in the way of the Seminoles reaching the BCS national championship game is an inexperienced Duke (10-2, 6-2) team appearing in its first ACC title game. Ive had the good fortune through the years to play some No. 1 teams in this profession, some of them looked like No. 1 teams, some of them didnt, Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. Florida State certainly is. On Thursday, prosecutors said they would not bring sexual assault charges against Winston, the leading Heisman Trophy candidate. A woman had alleged Winston had sexually assaulted her at an off-campus apartment last December. He will play tonight. Despite the commotion surrounding the team the last several weeks, Fisher said Winston has never wavered on the field. When its time to play football, when its time to go to school, he compartmentalizes and handles his responsibilities. ... Its a true trademark to him because he did not let his individual situation affect his team, and to me thats what a man does, Fisher said. Winston expressed relief in a statement released Thursday: Its been difficult to stay silent through this process, but I never lost faith in the truth and in who I am. Winston was not made available Friday for interviews. The Blue Devils (10-2, 6-2) are in many respects the ultimate underdog. They emerged from the weaker side of the ACC conference. Theyre 0-12 all-time facing No. 1ranked teams and 0-18 against the Seminoles. And theyre facing a Florida State team that annihilated three then-ranked opponents by a combined score of 155-28. For Fisher, the biggest challenge may be keeping his team focused, not allowing his players to look ahead to a potential national championship showdown with unbeaten Ohio State. Fisher doesnt seem worried, saying if his team cant get up for a conference championship game then we have an issue. What were thinking about is running through the finish line, Fisher said. When you run the 100meter dash, being No. 1 at the 90meter mark doesnt mean anything. Some things to watch in the ACC championship game:Winstons responseHow will Winston play in his first game since the scandal ended? It certainly has to be a relief for the ACC player of the year. Fisher said he has no doubt his focus will be there. His intelligence level and ability to comprehend the things hes in and embrace the situations is really remarkable, Fisher said. To me thats one of his greatest strengths.Covering BenjaminCutcliffe has gone on record to say the Blue Devils dont have anyone who can match up with Florida States 6-foot-4, 238-pound wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who has 12 touchdown receptions this season, including seven in the last four games. He had three TDs last week against Florida, seemingly scoring nearly at will. Associated PressFlorida State running back Devonta Freeman and the rest of the No. 1 Seminoles face No. 25 Duke today in the ACC championship game. Should Florida State win, it will advanced to the BCS national title game.

They did just that, as Pryor opened the second half scoring with a pair of free throws. Ben Janicki dropped a soft hook shot for a putback, Mitchell Ellis hit a pair from the line, then Pryor converted on a pretty scoop layup in the lane to tie the contest at 31. Janickis putback of another miss gave Citrus the lead, 35-33, and Pryors nice turnaround jumper in the key preserved Citrus one-point lead heading into the fourth. Pryor passed the 1,000 point mark for his high school career, and Densmore gave credit where its due. When we need him in certain situations, hes our go-to guy. So when he fouled out with a minute or so left, that hurt, he said. Pryor also added six rebounds and four assists, while Janicki finished with eight points and nine rebounds for Citrus. Robinson scored 13 points to go with five rebounds and four assists for Dunnellon. I expected a game like this with them, Densmore said. Theyve got a lot of good athletes, and weve got a lot of good athletes, so we chalk one up. They got us here. Citrus next hosts Lake Weir on Tuesday for a 7:30 p.m. start. of steals. We just settled down, really, said Sawyer of his teams pickup on offense. (Lecanto head) Coach (Jeff Anderson) told us to settle down and run our man-set plays, and we ran them and they worked. Senior point guard Thomas Vilardi also pitched in with one of his better recent offensive performances for LHS by adding 12 points six coming on a pair of margin-extending 3s in the third and several assists. Anderson gave credit to who he calls his defensive coordinator, assistant coach Hernan Roldan, and wondered what his Panthers can accomplish if only they cut down their offensive turnovers. Theyre killing us, he said. But thats our youth. I told them if we cut our turnovers in half, were at 93 points. Our guards have to take care of the ball better. But, hey, thats the one negative from the game. We were able to throw the book at (Crystal River) tonight, and they got tired. We had 18 assists, so (Burich and Sawyers) teammates were feeding them well. The win lifts Lecanto back over .500 at 4-3 overall (1-1 in the district). Crystal River, which plays its fourth game in as many days today, moves to 2-3 and 0-1 respectively. The Panthers led just 20-15 midway through the second quarter following a bucket by Reynolds, before going up 28-17 heading into the break behind a pair of Sawyer scores. Crystal River was 7 for 26 from the field in the opening half, and were shooting 25 percent upon entering the fourth, where they scored 21 points on 9 of 12 shooting from the floor. We cant shoot the ball, CRHS head coach Steve Feldman said. Plenty of looks, we just couldnt get them to go down. I thought our defense dug in about as well as it can in the first half. We have some size disadvantage with our opponent, obviously. As the ball continued to not go in, he added, we were spending ourselves on the defensive end and Lecanto would kick the ball out for open looks. While hobbled by a hurting ankle, senior Ty Reynolds led his Pirates with 13 points nine in the first half and junior forward Carlton Gadsen grabbed a team-high eight rebounds for Crystal River. Pirates sophomore Shaun Frasier, a 5-foot-8 guard, helped spark his club with five points, two boards and a steal in the final quarter. We got some mop-up stuff near the end, and thats hopefully good for a couple of guys confidence, Feldman said. Crystal River plays Haines City Landmark Christian today at 12:45 p.m. in the Ocala ATR Showcase at St. John Lutheran. Lecanto is at home Tuesday against Hernando. The second half was a curious one, with all the Pirates starters but Croyle playing very few minutes. I was determined to get my second string in there, Rodgers said. They needed the work too. Those (Lecanto) girls have talent and are well coached, but theyre young. Its going to take time. Still, it was curious when, facing a 385 deficit two minutes into the third quarter, it was Lecanto that went into a stall when facing Crystal Rivers 2-1-2 zone, holding the ball for several minutes in a period in which the only points scored came on a basket by Hannigan. Asked for her reasoning for the slow-down, Szunko said, Just to control the game, the pace of the game, and work on our fundamentals. Look at the stat sheet and you can see they scored 36 in the first half but only eight in the second. Leading Crystal River on the boards was Kaylan Simms with eight rebounds, while Eason added five boards and six steals to go with her nine points. Wells led the Pirates with seven steals, and Richardson contributed four assists. Taylor Mitchells nine rebounds topped Lecanto. Crystal River must travel to St. Petersburg Boca Ciega for a game Thursday before hosting once-beaten Citrus in a mid-season 5A-6 showdown Friday. Lecanto hosts both Brooksville Nature Coast Tech Monday and Wildwood Thursday before going on the road to play Dunnellon Friday.

Trenton (12-1) shut down Blountstowns option offense, holding the Tigers to just 79 yards on 43 carries. Cheevers first catch of the game was a 54-yard touchdown pass from Stephen Smith. He would add a 48-yard catchand-run later in the half. Blountstown (13-1) looked to their quarterback platoon of Dylan Lee and Hunter Jordan to make a difference but the quarterbacks combined to go 4 of 11 for 63 yards and two interceptions. In the third quarter Lee was intercepted by Michael Smith, who returned it 35 yards for a touchdown to give Trenton a 14-0 lead. Kade Rogers led the defensive charge for Trenton with 10 tackles, six tackles for loss and a sack.Champagnat Cath. downs Victory Christian 14-7ORLANDO Michael Frederick ran for two touchdowns as Hialeah Champagnat Catholic defeated Lakeland Victory Christian 14-7 in the Florida football Class 2A state championship. It is the first football championship for Champagnat Catholic (14-0). The Lions scored on the opening drive of the game Friday, going 32 yards in eight plays. Neither team did much offensively for the rest of the first half, and Victory Christian failed to take advantage of some good field position. Fredericks second score came on the opening drive of the second half. Victory Christian (10-4) rallied behind the play of quarterback Caleb Lewis, who rushed for a short touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to close to gap to 14-7. The Storm had two more possessions and drove down to the Champagnat 23 with less than a minute remaining, but Lewis pass to Adre Poleon on 4th and 14 was overthrown. Frederick rushed for 64 yards on 18 carries, while Lewis was 11-of-25 for 165 yards with two interceptions.AP sources: Beltran, Yanks agree at $45M, 3 yearsNEW YORK Carlos Beltran is coming back to New York, this time to the Bronx. The All-Star outfielder and the Yankees agreed Friday to a $45 million, three-year contract, two people familiar with the deal said. Beltrans agreement came hours after second baseman Robinson Cano decided to leave for Seattle and on the same day pitcher Hiroki Kuroda agreed to return for 2014. Beltrans deal was detailed to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because it was subject to a physical and had not yet been announced. The agreement was first reported by the New York Daily News. Beltran, 36, is an eight-time All-Star who played for the Mets from 2005-11, when he was dealt to San Francisco. He signed a $26 million, two-year contract with St. Louis before the 2012 season and reached the World Series for the first time this year. Slowed by knee injuries, Beltran has retained a potent bat especially in October. He hit .296 with 24 homers and 84 RBIs for the Cardinals this year and added two homers and 15 RBIs in the postseason. Beltran injured ribs in the World Series opener when he banged into Fenway Parks right-fight fence while robbing Bostons David Ortiz of a grand slam. Beltran joins a crowded Yankees outfield. Brett Gardner, Ichiro Suzuki and Alfonso Soriano are set to return, and Jacoby Ellsbury has a $153 million, seven-year deal pending. From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

B4SATURDAY, DECEMBER7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS US soccer receives tough World Cup draw Americans to play Ghana, Portugal and Germany Associated PressThe United States will play Ghana, Portugal and Germany in what appears to be the most difficult first-round group at next years World Cup, one that will take the Americans on a 9,000mile trip around Brazil. Making its seventh straight appearance at soccers showcase, the U.S. was drawn Friday into Group G and opens on June 16 in Natal against Ghana, which eliminated the Americans at the 2006 and 2010 tournaments. The U.S. meets Portugal and 2008 FIFA Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo six days later in the Amazon rain forest city Manaus. The Americans have just three off days to recover before closing group play on June 26 in Recife against three-time champion Germany. I think we have the quality, if we play our best ball, to get out of the group, U.S. captain Clint Dempsey said. You cant think about, Am I the favorite? Am I the underdog? Whats it going to be like playing in the heat? Whats it going to be like with the travel? Those are factors that come into it, but at the end of the day both teams have to deal with it. Statistically, the U.S. group has the top average FIFA world ranking. Its definitely one of the tougher groups, if not the toughest, but at the same time, this is what the World Cups all about. You go there to play against the best, American forward Jozy Altidore said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. I think the boys will be excited, will be up for it. U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann played for Germanys 1990 World Cup championship team and coached his native country to third place in the 2006 tournament, commuting to Europe from his California home in Orange County. Obviously its one of the most difficult groups in the whole draw, having Portugal with Cristiano Ronaldo and then Ghana, who has a history with the United States. It couldnt get any more difficult or any bigger, he said at the draw in Costa do Sauipe, Brazil. Its a real challenge. And well take it. Well take it on, and hopefully were going to surprise some people there. As the draw pot the U.S. was in was emptied, the Americans and South Korea were the last remaining teams. While the Americans were drawn into the group with an average FIFA ranking of 11.25, South Korea wound up in Group H, creating a group with the poorest average at 28.25. I think the teams mentality is that we can go and play with anybody, American defender Matt Besler said. Now were going to have to prove it. I kind of had in my stomach that we were going to get Germany, Klinsmann said. Germany beat the U.S. 2-0 in a 1998 World Cup opener in Paris with Klinsmann setting up the first goal and scoring the second the edged the Americans 1-0 on a controversial goal in the 2002 quarterfinal in South Korea. Die Mannschaft is coached by Klinsmanns former assistant, Joachim Loew. The Americans beat a second-tier German team 4-3 in a June exhibition at Washington. With Jurgen Klinsmann, they have another mentality, Loew said. I learned a lot from Jurgen, so this is special. Ranked 14th in the world, the U.S. has alternated quick exits with advancement since returning to soccers showcase in 1990. After the draw four years ago, one British paper used a headline EASY for England, Algeria, Slovenia and the Yanks, and The Sun called it the best English group since the Beatles. The Americans wound up atop a group for the first time, and England advanced as the secondplace nation. This time, second-ranked Germany and fifth-ranked Portugal are the favorites to advance to the second round. If the U.S. reaches the round of 16, it would face Belgium, Russia, Algeria or South Korea from Group H. I guarantee you Jurgen knows more about Germany than Jogi Loew knows about the U.S, U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati said. The U.S. will feel pressure to open with a win against Ghana, ranked 24th. The Black Stars defeated the Americans 2-1 in the 2006 stage in Germany and by the same score in overtime in the round of 16 at the last World Cup in South Africa. At the 2002 tournament, the U.S. opened with a 3-2 upset of Portugal after taking a shocking three-goal lead in the first 36 minutes. Everybody is saying that this is the Group of Death and its such a hard challenge, former American captain John Harkes said. I still think that the U.S. can rise to the occasion. In other groups, it is: Group A: Brazil, Cameroon, Croatia, Mexico; Group B: Australia, Chile, Netherlands, Spain; Group C: Colombia, Greece, Ivory Coast, Japan; Group D: Costa Rica, England, Italy, Uruguay; Group E: Ecuador, France, Honduras, Switzerland; Group F: Argentina, BosniaHerzegovina, Iran, Nigeria. Brazil 3-1 favorite, US down to 150-1Brazil has been made a 3-1 favorite to win the 2014 World Cup it will be hosting. The Brazilians remain at the same odds after Fridays draw as they held going into it. Argentina is next at 9-2, barely up from 5-1 odds, according to the professional oddsmakers Keith Glantz and Russell Culver. Germany is 5-1, followed by defending champion Spain at 7-1. The United States, placed in a difficult group with Germany, Portugal (30-1) and Ghana (175-1) for the first round, dropped from 60-1 to 150-1.From wire reports AP World Cup draw: Location mattersThe draw divides the 32 teams into eight groups of four teams each for first-round play in next summers tournament in Brazil. The top two teams in each group will advance to the second round.GROUP A GROUP B GROUP C GROUP D GROUP E GROUP F GROUP G GROUP HBrazil Croatia Mexico Cameroon Spain Netherlands Chile Australia Colombia Greece Ivory Coast Japan Urugary Costa Rica England Italy Switzerland Ecuador France Honduras Argentina Bosia-Herzegonina Iran Nigeria Germany Portugal Ghana United States Belgium Algeria Russia South Korea Infielder will anchor Mariners Associated PressSEATTLE Even as the Seattle Mariners were remaining silent about a potential deal with free agent second baseman Robinson Cano, the New York Yankees were ready to move on. He was a great Yankee. He was a great player. I think everybody tried hard to get the deal done. We just never got close enough obviously. We wish him the best. We hope he has a long, healthy career, Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said on Friday. Were going to keep going. Were still looking at all the same guys that we were looking at a week ago or two ago. Were going to continue to improve. Were not done spending. Goodbye New York. Hello Seattle? The Mariners werent saying much of anything on Friday, only issuing a statement in response to an ESPN report that Cano and the team had reached agreement on a $240 million, 10-year contract pending a physical. It would be tied for the fourth-richest contract in baseball history and a striking blow from a franchise thats done little to get noticed for the past decade. The reported deal would blow away the Yankees last offer of $175 million over seven years. Only the two deals signed by Alex Rodriguez first with Texas and then the Yankees and Joey Vottos contract with Cincinnati were worth more. Albert Pujols also signed a $240 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels. We are not able to confirm any news regarding Robinson Cano at this time. If and when an agreement is completed and finalized, we will announce, the Mariners statement read. Canos reported deal would be one of the largest in baseball history and a coup for a franchise thats gone a dozen years since making the postseason. It would bring creditability for the Mariners after striking out in the past in their pursuits of big free agents like Prince Fielder and Josh Hamilton. Cano was a five-time AllStar second baseman for the Yankees. Last season, he played in 160 games, hitting .314 with 27 homers and 107 RBIs, while posting a .899 on-base plus slugging percentage. He finished fifth in American League most valuable player voting. Cano could be the anchor for a lineup thats lacked consistency at the plate most of the past decade. Between 2009 and 2012, Seattles offense ranked last in baseball in batting average, and was near the bottom in runs scored and homers. The Mariners showed some pop this past season with 188 home runs second-most in baseball but 52 of those came from the combo of Kendrys Morales and 41-year-old Raul Ibanez, both free agents. Associated PressNew York Yankee Robinson Cano watches his two-run home run May 18 at Yankee Stadium in New York. The Seattle Mariners say that cannot confirm any details of a potential deal with the free agent second baseman. The statement came in response to an ESPN report Friday morning that Cano and the Mariners had reached an agreement on a $240 million, 10-year contract pending a physical. Source: Granderson, Mets reach dealNEW YORK Curtis Granderson is heading across town, where the New York Mets hope his home run swing wont suffer at Citi Field. The free-agent outfielder agreed to a $60 million, fouryear contract with the Mets, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because the deal was pending a physical. Granderson, who turns 33 in March, comes over from the crosstown Yankees and gives the Mets much-needed power in their punchless outfield. He batted .229 with seven homers and 15 RBIs this year, when wrist and hand injuries limited him to 61 games. But he surpassed 40 homers in each of his previous two seasons in pinstripes.From wire reports Woods ties record and takes 2-shot lead at Sherwood Associated PressTHOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Tiger Woods had a birdie putt on every hole and made 10 of them Friday to tie his own course record at Sherwood and take a two-shot lead in the World Challenge. Woods had a 10-under 62, matching the score he shot in the second round at Sherwood six years ago. That gave him a two-shot lead over Zach Johnson, who birdied the last hole for a 68. Matt Kuchar also had a 68 and was another shot behind. Graeme McDowell played with Woods and called it a clinic. Woods missed only one fairway and hit every green. Woods said it was similar to the 61 he had at Firestone this year when he won the Bridgestone Invitational by seven shots. Woods already is a five-time winner at Sherwood.Nedbank Golf ChallengeSUN CITY, South Africa Wales Jamie Donaldson completed a firstround 67 and shot 66 in the second round to take the lead in the Nedbank Golf Challenge, South Africas first major sporting event since former president and anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela died Thursday. The 30 players, all wearing black ribbons, spent around nine hours on the course to make up for lost time when the first round was halted because of lightning Thursday. Donaldson had an 11-under 133 total at Gary Player Country Club. The European Tour is sanctioning the event for the first time.Hong Kong OpenHONG KONG South Africas Jbe Kruger shot a 4-under 66 to take the second-round lead in the Hong Kong Open. Kruger had a 7-under 133 total at Hong Kong Golf Club in the event sanctioned by the European and Asian tours. Wales Stuart Manley was a stroke back after a 67. Defending champion Miguel Angel Jimenez of Spain was tied for 14th at 3 under after a 67. Last year, Jimenez became the oldest champion in European Tour history, winning at 48 years, 318 days. He also won the event in 2005 and 2008. John Daly missed the cut with rounds of 78 and 68. Daly was making his third start since having surgery on his right elbow in July. He tied for 48th last month in China in the BMW Masters and missed the cut last week in the Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa.Dubai Ladies MastersDUBAI, United Arab Emirates Stacy Lewis increased her lead to two strokes in the Dubai Ladies Masters, shooting a 2-under 70 in the third round. The third-ranked Lewis, a threetime winner this year on the LPGA Tour, had an 11-under 205 total in the Ladies European Tours seasonending event. Thailands Pornanong Phatlum was second after a 69. Texans fire coach Kubiak Associated PressHOUSTON The Houston Texans fired Gary Kubiak on Friday, parting ways with the only coach to lead the team to the playoffs. The team announced the decision one day after the Texans lost their 11th straight game, 27-20 at Jacksonville, a stunning fall for a team that expected to make a Super Bowl run. Houston (2-11) played miserably and was flagged 14 times for a franchise-record 177 yards. The 52-year-old Kubiak was hired in 2006 and was working under a threeyear contract that runs through 2014. An eighthround pick out of Texas A&M, he spent nine years as John Elways backup in Denver and has made his mark as an offensive guru and quarterbacks mentor. The Texans said they couldnt wait any longer to start turning things around. Whats taken place with this organization is unacceptable, general manager Rick Smith said. Weve got three weeks of an evaluation process left and weve got to right the ship. Owner Bob McNair said the decision was a hard one. It was difficult for me because I think so much of Gary, McNair said. Were here to have a winning culture and this year has not contributed to that. The Texans said defensive coordinator Wade Phillips would serve as interim coach for the rest of the season. After taking over the team in 2006, Kubiak led the team to back-to-back AFC South titles in 2011-2012. Kubiaks overall record is 61-64, with a 2-2 mark in the playoffs. He suffered a mini-stroke Nov. 3 in a frightening scene, collapsing at halftime during a game against the Colts and being rushed to a Houston hospital. He had returned to the sidelines, but the Texans have been unable to rebound from injuries to top players including quarterback Matt Schaub and running back Arian Foster.

The Texans fired Kubiak on Friday, parting ways with the only coach to lead the team to the playoffs.

Announcement made through Facebook page Associated PressSACRAMENTO, Calif. Kobe Bryant will make his long-awaited return from a torn left Achilles tendon when the Los Angeles Lakers host the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night. In a dramatic video posted on his Facebook page before the Lakers played at Sacramento on Friday night, Bryant set his muchanticipated comeback date. The video, which was also uploaded to the teams Facebook page, was titled: Seasons of Legend. Lakers announce Kobes return. The video shows Bryants No. 24 jersey flapping in the wind. There is rain, sleet, snow and lightning for nearly 2 minutes. At one point, his jersey tears. Sunshine breaks through the clouds, and the video fades to black. Finally, words flash across the screen that read, The Legend Continues...December 8. Thats something special right there, Lakers teammate Nick Young quipped when a reporter showed him the video on his smartphone in the locker room. How effective Bryant will be against top-tier competition is the last lingering question in his return. Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said Bryant will likely be eased back into the lineup, though he declined to discuss how many minutes he will play in his first game. Asked what his expectations are for Bryant this season, DAntoni said, That hell be a dominant player. He can play any way, DAntoni said. He can play below the rim, above the rim, the side of the rim. The guy can play any way. Hell figure out how hell be effective and hell come at you with everything hes got. Bryant did not travel with the team to Sacramento. The 15-time All-Star hasnt played since he was injured April 12 in a home win over the Golden State Warriors. He had surgery the following morning and was projected to take six to nine months to recover. Bryants return has seemed imminent since he began practicing last month. The 35-year-old guard has said that he could adjust his game and contribute something to the Lakers even if hes not fully healthy when he finally steps on the court for his 18th NBA season. His teammates expect the same. Hes the biggest competitor that there is. Happy to have him back, guard Jodie Meeks said. Hes looked great. Obviously he has to get his timing back and his legs, but I know hes probably been training pretty hard. I dont think it will take him long at all. Los Angeles signed the fourthleading scoring in NBA history to a two-year contract extension last week. Bryants new deal is reportedly worth $48.5 million and takes him into his 20th season with the Lakers. Bryant hasnt given up hope of adding a sixth championship ring to his trophy case, even while the Lakers struggle to keep up with the NBAs best teams. Los Angeles entered Friday nights game with a 9-9 record. Thats still slightly better than most Lakers fans expected this season after the departures of Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace coupled with the injuries to Bryant and 39-year-old point guard Steve Nash, who could return next week from the nerve root irritation in his back. Weve developed some guys that are really going to contribute a lot, and it might not have happened if (Bryant) was here, DAntoni said. You have to look at the bright side of it. Now we just have to get him back to the level that hes capable of playing. Associated PressLos Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant talks Sept. 28 during media day in El Segundo, Calif.

B6SATURDAY, DECEMBER7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Up in weight TONYCASTRO CorrespondentLecanto senior Christopher Ewing is going through a transformation on the mats for the Panthers. Chris, the youngest of four boys to Thomas and Jackie Ewing, was born in Inverness, but resides in Homosassa. Next summer, hell be the fourth Ewing member to graduate from LHS. Like most adolescents, Ewing was seeking a niche a place where he could fit in when he stumbled upon the Panther wrestling room. I was 16 and a sophomore at Lecanto and a bunch of my friends were on the team and said why dont I try out, recalled the current 6-foot-1, 182-pounder. Ewing immediately took to his surroundings. Wrestling is cool because you dont have to rely on other people, Ewing said. When youre in the circle, its all on you. As a first-year varsity grappler he quietly finished 6-9 overall. He was eliminated in the District 2A-7 tournament at Hernando at 160 pounds in his third-round match by Springstead senior Jake Smith with a 40-second pin. Last winter in the same weight division, Ewing fashioned a fine 17-8 campaign, but again blew a fuse in the first leg of the state series. In the 2A-7 tourney at Springstead, he dropped an 8-1 decision to Springsteads first-year varsity grappler, sophomore Billy Swift. From the 2A-7 losers bracket, Ewing was ousted by Land OLakes Cedric Lowe, 4-2. Ewing vividly recalls the lessons learned. I had a bad day at districts, he said. I learned that Ive got to be mentally stronger. Losing that last match was tough on me mentally. Since that loss, Ewing decided to adhere to the advice proposed by LHS coach Scot Roberts to gain weight. Hes an intelligent kid, Roberts said. Hes aggressive, yet he wrestled too many times from the outside. He needed to bulk up and become more physical. Overall, hes gotten so much better on his feet this year, Roberts continued. He and Matt (Wheat) go hard all the time thats why I love those guys theres no letup. Techniquewise, hes learned to go back to things that have shown him success. On the difference a year makes, Hes become a much more physical guy, Roberts noted. By adding nearly 25 pounds, hes learned to wrestle with muscle. He was always a big kid. Now, hes got the strength to match up against some of his bigger opponents. To that end, Ewing broke out of the gates this winter with vengeance during the season-opening Weeki Wachee Duals II. Though the Panthers finished 2-6 in the two-day event, Ewing raised eyebrows with a fine 7-1 run, featuring a team-best five pins. On Wednesday, though the host Panthers fell 60-21 to archrival Crystal River, Ewing folded Eddie Bennis at 182 pounds into a 10-4 decision for his team-leading eighth win. Ewing was quick to identify the source of his new-found success. Bigger is better, Ewing said with a smile. Ive always been tall, but I felt I was undersized for the guys I was competing against. Since last year, Ive put on over 20 pounds. My bench (press) has gone up over 80 pounds so I feel much stronger. Ive kinda grown into my body. Ewing played one season of football at tight end as a sophomore. He doesnt regret never returning to the gridiron. I felt like I had a family with my wrestling teammates. When things go wrong on the football field and people start pointing fingers at everybody else, Ewing said. In wrestling, its all on you. The sport teaches you responsibilities. On the eve of this weekends rugged 32ndannual Kiwanis Invitational at Hernando High (which concludes today), Ewing was quick to credit his practice partner, Wheat, on his growth. Matt is pretty tough, Ewing said. Hes coming back from a dislocated elbow. Ive wrestled him since we were sophomores. He definitely pushes me in practice. Hes a lot smaller than I am, so he makes work twice as hard. In his spare time, Ewing dedicates himself to two hobbies: bodybuilding and photography. Its funny, Ive never been a big guy and now that Ive put on the weight, I can see the results, Ewing said. As far as photography, I just shoot whatever catches my eye. By seasons end Ewing would like to place among the top six at states. Im looking forward to Kiwanis, he said. My goal is go undefeated and eventually be the best 182-pounder in the county. To do that, I have to beat (Citrus senior) Brandon (Taylor). MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleLecanto senior Chris Ewing, top, feels more at home in the 182-pound weight class this season after gaining 25 pounds of mostly muscle. Im sure many of you have noticed that a lot of the police cars along the highways are the newer Dodge Chargers. These Chargers seem to be very popular with law enforcement. However, this is not a recent phenomenon as MOPARS (cars produced by Chrysler Corp. Divisions) have been used as police cars for many years. Plymouth has apparently been in the police car business longer than most people realize. The Washington State Patrol used Plymouth coupes in 1932. While early Fords had a reputation for speed and power desired by police departments, Plymouths were a popular choice for police work even in the early years. The Greely, Colo. police department pitted the 1935 Chevrolet, Ford and Plymouth against each other before deciding on which model to buy for their police work. The three cars were paced over a level one-mile pavement course. The Plymouth clipped through the mile in just 60 seconds, reaching a top speed of 90 miles per hour and doing much better than the Chevy or Ford. It wasnt until the 1950s, however, that the term police package (referring to a specially equipped automobile designed solely for police work) would come into common usage. Most of these cars, of course, were equipped with the largest possible engines plus a special handling package not available to the general public. In later years these cars were true muscle cars in every sense of the word, except that the muscle package was hidden in a mom-and-pop four door sedan rather than the more noticeable convertible or hard top coupe. In 1956, Chryslers first official police package was offered on Dodge Coronets and, a year later, Dodge offered the 325 HEMI engine, with a variety of performance packages and a top power rating of 310 hp. 1957 was a big year for Plymouth in the police car market, which it dominated for many years. Keeping its eye on Dodge, Plymouth had come up with a Police Pursuit package on its own for the 1957 models. Plymouth, however, had put together a series of packages which appealed to a cross section of police work. Through the 1960s, 70s and 80s, the Plymouth and Dodge brands were very popular with police departments. This changed in the 1990s as the Jeep Cherokee was the only official Chrysler police car from 1996 to 2001 there were no Plymouth or Dodge police cars. Dodge began to recapture part of the police car market starting in the 2000s, offering police packages for the Intrepid, Magnum and Charger. Today, the Dodge Charger seems to be one of the dominant brands with the police as we see lots of them around.Car jokeA guy driving a Yugo pulled up at a traffic light alongside a Rolls Royce. The Yugo driver rolled down his window and called across, Hey buddy, thats a nice car. You got a phone in your Rolls? Ive got one in my Yugo. As a matter of fact I do have a phone, replied the Rolls driver nonchalantly. The Yugo man went on: You got a fridge in your Rolls because I have one in the back of my Yugo. Yes, I do have a refrigerator. What about a TV? You got a TV in your Rolls, because I have one in the back of my Yugo? Yes, of course I have a television in my car, replied the Rolls driver, irritated. How about a bed? persisted the Yugo driver. Have you got a bed in your Rolls because I have one in the back of my Yugo? Annoyed that he didnt have a bed, the Rolls driver sped off and arranged to have one installed that same day. The next morning, he sought out the Yugo, finally tracking it down on a side street where it was parked with all the windows steamed up. The Rolls driver got out of his car and banged on the door of the Yugo. There was no reply, so he banged again. Eventually the Yugo driver stuck his head out the window. His hair was soaking wet. The Rolls driver announced proudly: I now have a very nice bed in my Rolls. The Yugo driver glared back: You got me out of the shower to tell me that?

CRHS hasnt competed in any mat tourneys since the Nov. 15-16s Weeki Wachee Duals II. Over the past 11 Kiwanis meets, the Pirates have fared well placing in the Top 10 eight times. Last winter, CRHS finished 13thin the 25-team field with 79.5 points. Dylan Ayala was the teams lone placer (second) at 152 pounds. He dropped an epic 13-10 decision to Lake Gibson senior Alex Destra. In 11 years, 26 CHS grapplers have placed fourth or better at Kiwanis. Only one, however, has returned to Citrus County with a gold medal sophomore Seth Metz at 171 pounds in 2003. CRHS is expecting to fill all 14 weight classes.

Bilby (4-0, 4 pins this season) is a 2011 Kiwanis placer. Entering the meet, Allen (8-0), Justin Burcroff and Hooper (8-1) lead the team in victories. According to Frederick, the Pirates best bets on going deep into the brackets are Allen, Hooper and Bilby. It really all depends on who else is there, Frederick said. Were going to get the toughness necessary to compete for the remainder of the schedule. Kiwanis is all about facing better kids and to get good matches.Panthers 411Lecanto is the lone Citrus County mat team to ever capture the Kiwanis Invite under Cory Collins in 1998.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, DECEMBER 7, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Recently, local church pastor Lloyd Bertine stopped by the newsroom to talk about depression his. He had just come through a second bout of it and thought it was important to tell people that Christians and Christian pastors are not immune to it. Its not a character thing; its a chemical, brain thing, he said. He called his depression a dark night of the soul. It made him tired and unable to eat, doubtful of Gods love for him, although not Gods existence. He said he felt guilty getting up and preaching on Sundays, encouraging people when he felt discouraged. Things were dark, but he was never suicidal, he said. I told him that a few years back, I had gone through something that might be depression, although for me it was never a dark pit of hopelessness, but more like a constant, dulling fog. I was sad, sort of, but I didnt cry. Instead, Id go to Walmart a lot and push a cart around, thinking about buying pajamas because what I really wanted to do was go to bed. Maybe it wasnt true depression. Maybe it was depression-lite. Depressionish. Not enough to check myself into a hospital but enough to feel like I was in a fog and unable to see clearly, feeling out of sorts and out of touch. Depression-lite isnt as obvious as a dark night of the soul or the black hole that swallows some people, but its real nonetheless. According to the World Health Organization, depression is the second most common cause of disability after cardiovascular disease and is on track to be No. 1 within 10 years. As many as 25 percent of people in the U.S. will experience some form of depression during their lifetime. Mine lasted about a year. During that time I had a hard time getting to church. Id get into my car and try to get to a particular intersection. If I made it that far without turning around I knew I could make it into the building, and if I made it into the building, I knew Id stay. However, more often I wouldnt couldnt make it to my regular spot The daylight after the fog lifts Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES SOUTH BEND, Ind. The University of Notre Dame is suing the Obama administration over a federal mandate that its health insurance plans for students and employees cover birth control. The university filed its lawsuit Tuesday in U.S. District Court in South Bend. It claims the mandate violates Notre Dames freedom to practice religion without government interference. The Roman Catholic university says the birth control mandate violates the churchs teaching prohibiting contraception. The Obama administration promotes the laws provision of a range of preventive care, free of charge, as a key benefit of the health care overhaul. Contraception is included in the package of cost-free benefits. The administration also attempted to create a buffer for religiously affiliated hospitals, universities and social service groups that oppose birth control. The U.S. Supreme Court recently agreed to consider two cases in which business owners have objected to covering birth control for employees on religious grounds. RELIGION BRIEFS Christmas tree lit outside U.S. Capitol WASHINGTON An 88-foot-tall spruce that was transported from Washington state to Washington D.C. has been illuminated in a ceremony on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol. House Speaker John Boehner flipped the switch that lit the Capitol Christmas Tree, helped by the 6-year-old son of an Iraq war veteran. Washington Congressman Jim McDermott said Christmas is about a child that came into the world and changed the world. He added, I hope this tree will remind us of Jesus call to feed the hungry, to welcome the stranger, to clothe the naked and to take care of the sick. The U.S. Marine Band played O Come all ye Faithful, Joy to the World, O Holy Night and other Christmas hymns. On Friday, the National Christmas Tree will be lit on the Ellipse between the White House and the Washington Monument. Notre Dame sues over birth control mandate In 2010, the Rev. Lloyd Bertine preached 42 funerals. The first one was for his sister and the 42nd one was for his sisters husband. In between he did funerals for young people, babies, pillars in the community, childhood friends, strangers. After a while, it sent me into an emotional tailspin, said Bertine, pastor of Gulf to Lake Church in Crystal River. However, that wasnt his first bout of depression. His first was in 1985-86, when he was a pastor in Colorado. We had just gone through a three-year major building program and were growing numerically. For three years, my adrenaline was pumped, a constant adrenaline high trying to keep people and myself pumped up, he said. When that was all over, the church sent me to a Dolphins-Broncos football game Im a Dolphins fan. It was September 1985, and as Bertine sat in the stands, on top of his game, he felt an overwhelming sense of: Now what? Now what are you going to do for God? I felt lost, and it started spiraling downward from there and ended in depression, although I didnt know what it was, he said. After a few months, Bertine sought a Christian counselor who told him, You dont really know that God loves you ... From what youve told me, your God is a taskmaster whos always kicking you in the rear, saying, Now what are you going to do? How are you going to top this? The counselor told Bertine that he would never be happy until he understood that even if he completely failed and his church fell apart, God would continue to be pleased with him and would never stop loving him. At first, that made me mad, Bertine said. I didnt accept that, but eventually I realized that everything he said was true, that Gods love, mercy and grace have nothing to do with me or my performance. When Bertine was hit with his second bout of depression in 2010, he said he recognized it and sought help again. He also talked about it with other pastors, something he hadnt done the first time. Theres all this guilt, he said. It hit me spiritually why am I preaching? Do you really believe what youre saying? What right do you have to speak to people? You have to get beyond the shame and the guilt. He said he kept quiet during his first time of depression because he knew what other pastors would tell him.hen youre a pastor or spiritual leader, people look to you for any number of things. When you are in trouble, your pastor walks with you, counsels you, prays with and for you, finds you resources. When you are sick, your pastor sits by your bedside, anoints you with oil, tells you stories and shares scriptures to encourage your faith. Your pastor imparts his (or her) wisdom each week, sometimes in multiple sermons. Your pastor baptizes you, performs your wedding and your funeral. Week after week, month after month, year after year even when his light grows dim. Even when his soul is afraid, even when her faith wavers even when he doubts that God still loves him. Even when that happens, your pastor still has to be your pastor, and not just yours, but everyone elses in your congregation. Here is one pastors story about his dark night of the soul.by Nancy Kennedy The Rev. Lloyd Bertine, pastor of Gulf to Lake Church in Crystal River.NANCY KENNEDY /Chronicle Some well-known spiritual heroes who suffered from depression include: 16th-century mystic St. John of the Cross, who first spoke about the dark night of the soul. C.S. Lewis, author of Mer e Christianity and the Chronicles of Narnia books, among many others. Mother Teresa of Calcutta, w ho cared for thousands of the sick and dying in India. Martin Luther, father of the Protestant R eformation. See NIGHT/ Page C4 See GRACE/ Page C2 WASHINGTON The Supreme Court has turned away a Christian universitys attempt to overturn a key part of the Obama administrations health care law. The justices did not comment Monday in leaving in place a federal appeals court ruling dismissing Liberty Universitys lawsuit. Liberty made several arguments in challenging the portion of the health care law that requires most employers to provide health insurance to their workers or pay a fine. The 4th U.S. Circuit of Appeals in Richmond, Va., rejected those claims. The Supreme Court separately is considering whether for-profit corporations can mount religious objections to the laws requirement to include birth control among preventive health benefits. Court turns away Liberty U. lawsuit VATICAN CITY Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has given Pope Francis a book about the Inquisition in Spain that was written by the Israeli leaders late father. Netanyahu presented a Spanish translation of the 1995 book, The Origins of the Inquisition, to Francis during their 25-minute private audience Monday. Netanyahus father was an Israeli historian who died last year. A Zionist activist who opposed partitioning Palestine between Arabs and Jews, he was best known in academic circles for his research into the Catholic Churchs medieval inquisition against the Jews of Spain. Francis thanked Netanyahu and presented him with a small bronze plaque of St. Paul. Netanyahu gives pope book on Inquisition From wire reports

They are a staple of the American junk food diet and they are a soughtafter gastronomical delight all over the world. But there is one place where the cheeseburger does not reign as king, and that is in the kosher Jewish kitchen. The prohibition against mixing milk or dairy products with meat appears three times in the Hebrew Bible, in Exodus 23:19, Exodus 34:26 and Deuteronomy 14:21. In the Jewish tradition, when things are repeated in the Torah, it is done for emphasis, so that this particular law or prohibition is to be taken seriously. The commandment forbids boiling a kid in its mothers milk. This has been interpreted as a kindness to animals, as well as showing a distinction between the Canaanite peoples, whose practices included mixing milk with meat products. Anything that was against what the pagan population was doing was a way to make the Israelites holy, separate from the nations around them. This was an attempt to create a nation of priests and holy people, a group of people who would be concerned with spiritual and ethical values, serving the one God. Of course, these ideas are all commentary. The great sage, Rashi, also had his version of what the prohibition meant. The verse about boiling a kid (gdee) in his mothers milk refers to any young domestic animal such as a goat, lamb or cow. Had the verse stated gdee eezim, that would have meant a young goat. So Rashi concluded that gdee referred to all meat from a goat, lamb or cow. Since one cannot tell how old a cow was when it was butchered, even an old cow would fall under this custom. It was thought that if one ate meat from a cow with cheese, one could not be sure that the milk for the cheese did not come from the milk of the already butchered mother. This rule of kashrut (keeping kosher) would seem to apply only to red meat, but since poultry is also considered meat, chicken, turkey, quail and other domestic birds fall into the category of separating milk and meat, even though birds do not down front. Id sit somewhere way in the back, praying to be invisible. A Christianity Today report said depression is in part a withdrawal by the weary into an inner world, an attempt to create a protective cocoon against real-world demands. Thats how I felt as I still went to work, still wrote my column every week, still told you all about Gods mercy and grace, still believing it was true, just not quite feeling it through the fog. Years ago, we lived on the Monterey Bay in California, where the summers are foggy and cold. Sometimes it would stay foggy all week. One time, I had to drive through fog that was so dense I could barely see, which was quite scary. All I could do was stay behind the car in front of me with my eyes fixed on its taillights, praying all the way. After about 10 or so miles, the fog lifted and I was never so happy to see daylight. During the Monterey summers, when the fog would finally burn off, I would grab towels and sand toys and head to the beach with my girls. Wed wade through the tide pools looking for crabs, watch the sea otters in the water cracking open abalones on their bellies, or watch people hang gliding over the bay. I rejoiced when the fog lifted. I loved the feel of hot sunshine on my face and bare arms. After days on end of grayness you forget how good it is to be warmed by the sun. You forget that there could be anything different, anything better. You forget that the sun is always there, above the gray and the cold, damp mist. However, I never completely forgot, and neither did Pastor Bertine. Thats because God never leaves his children without hope, never leaves his children alone, even when it feels like it. The psalmist cried out to God in his distress and God sent thunder and lightning, hurled spears and reached from heaven deep into the deepest pit, pulled him out and set him safely in a spacious place because he delighted in me (Psalm 18). In the deepest darkness, in the thickest fog, even in depression-lite, God is still there, still able to save, still holding out hope, still loving his own.Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

A veggie burger with cheese is very acceptable, as is a real hamburger with imitation non-dairy cheese. As with many of the customs and laws of Judaism, things have crept into Jewish culture, which make Jews distinct people. Just as there are food taboos in other cultures, the Jews too have added their own particular mix. To a vegetarian, fish could be considered meat, but alas, it is exempt from the prohibition about mixing milk with meat. I would ask: Is a little fishie any less a creature of God to be respected? Fish, like birds, lay eggs, so no milk is involved. But who is to tell what mother fish gave birth to whom? It is a thought, however farfetched. In the whole scheme of things, there are some laws in Judaism that we just cannot explain. We call this chok, a statute we follow because God has told us to do so. We can come up with any number of reasons and interpretations, but in the end, we follow them because they were commanded to us to do so in order that we would lead holy lives. With this in mind, pass me a veggie burger with mushrooms and Swiss cheese and dont forget the kosher pickle.Judi Siegal is a retired teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Ocala with her husband, Phil. She can be reached at niejudis@yahoo.com. They were just like me, he said. Theyd tell me, If youre strong enough and have enough faith, you wont get into this situation. Thats what I wouldve said. I had to apologize to my church out West for the many people who came to me and Id say something glib and clich like, You need more faith. When I opened up to them, it was like opening the floodgates, he said. They told me, We couldnt come to you with our problems because you were too strong, saying, enough faith could overcome anything. The Lord had to teach me lessons about compassion and empathy the hard way. Bertine also said he had to learn that taking medication for depression is not a character issue. He said, If you had diabetes, would you take insulin? If you had thyroid issues, would you take a thyroid pill? Then whats the difference with depression? The difference is, we think we can fix it by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps, but its a chemical thing, a physical thing. He added that hes had to learn other things too, such as not thinking that he has to visit every single person whos sick or have his hands on every single detail of running the church its too much for one person to handle alone. He has also learned that a congregation wont run away or turn on him for admitting that hes human or that hes struggling. Its amazing how your mind, the chemical imbalance, how it clouds your reality, he said. I call it being DUI doubting under the influence, the influence of depression. I can handle the fatigue and not wanting to eat, but not the spiritual doubt and the thinking that God really doesnt care and my prayers dont even go beyond the ceiling. When you come out of it you think, How could I doubt? I know God loves me. But you do think that, so do a lot of others. But youre not alone. Thats why its important, especially for pastors, to tell someone.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.comC4SATURDAY, DECEMBER7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLERELIGION 000FYT2 Pastor Terry Roberts Ph: 726-0201 Independent Fundamental Cross road Bap tist Chu rch 000DIWC Youre invited to our Services Sunday School 10:00 AM Sunday 10:45 AM & 6:00 PM Wednesday 7:00 PM 5335 E.

Anxiety rates among clergy were 13.5 percent, and more than 7 percent of clergy reported simultaneously experiencing both depression and anxiety. Job stress was named among the contributing factors for depression and anxiety. Other factors included grief counseling, navigating the competing demands of their congregation members, delivering a weekly sermon (that opens them up to criticism) and the strain of constantly having to juggle these roles. Furthermore, the study found that pastors sense of guilt about not doing enough at work was a top predictor of depression; doubt of their call to ministry was a top predictor of anxiety. Pastors with less social support those who reported feeling socially isolated were at higher risk for depression.

We appreciate the many donations we have received and try to do our part in giving back. For instance, club members made holiday cards for a young soldier far away from home at Christmas. In the cards, along with the crayoned Christmas trees and glittery candles, they thanked him for his service to our country and wished him well. The Robert Halleen Club is collecting needed items for the children who live at Mission of Citrus and are making cards for them. They will also do a trash cleanup at Bluebird Springs. The Evelyn Waters Club has an ongoing food drive and they do trash pickups at the Trail and Liberty Park. At this time of year, many people make their annual donations to charities and deserving nonprofit organizations. These donations coming before the end of the year, if to the Boys & Girls Clubs, are tax deductible and thereby help the giver as well as the recipient. Donations to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County, stay in this county making things better for the 450 to 500 children we reach each year. Without our afterschool programs, many children would be at home without supervision while mom and dad are at work. Seventy-two percent of our kids live with a single parent or someone who is not a relative. Ninety-three percent of club members are between the ages of 5 and 13 years, and 66 percent of members are male. Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County members are at risk to the many pressures of society, both good and bad. A good number of our families are economically disadvantaged with parents unemployed, or 80 percent of those who work making $25,000 or less for a family of four or more. Sixty-three percent of our club members are eligible for the free or reduced-price school lunch program. Some youths live in circumstances that are considered unhealthy and 8 percent of members say they feel afraid even while at home. Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County dedicated staff members and proven programs build self-esteem and help children develop skills that will stay with them as they grow into young adults. You can make a gift to help our children. Call 352-621-9225 or visit www.citrus bgc.com to make a donation.

C6SATURDAY, DECEMBER7, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.In yesterdays deal, declarer had to take three club finesses with Q-9-3 opposite A-J-102. This required running the nine, the lower high card, first, so that he could repeat the finesse two more times without needing an extra entry. I thought that was standard technique until I saw this deal. South gets to five clubs. West leads the spade king. How should South approach the play? North might have bid one no-trump, but two clubs was preferable. If South had interest in three no-trump, he could have cue-bid in spades. Also, if South had something like queen-doubleton of spades, he ought to have been the no-trump declarer, not North. South has two losers in the black suits. So he must find East with both red-suit kings, unlikely as that might seem. And being in the dummy for the last time, declarer has to take three finesses, two in diamonds and one in hearts. How? If South runs the diamond nine, what does he do next? If he leads dummys diamond 10, he will be stuck in his hand with the jack. And if he plays the queen, East can cover with the king to put South into his hand. Instead, declarer must start with dummys diamond queen. If East covers, South wins, plays a diamond to dummys nine, and takes the heart finesse. Or, if East plays low, South unblocks his jack, then continues with the diamond nine. He can take all three finesses and make his contract. Bridge retains its appeal primarily because you can rarely use the words always and never.

(N)NewsMotherRules Dear Annie: Since childhood, my mother has told me she never wanted me. I now have two children of my own. At one point, I became homeless, and my parents took me in. But I became ill and needed major surgery. While recovering, my brothers son came over often and would constantly pick on my sons. My parents did nothing. One day, I heard my youngest son screaming, and when I checked, I saw my 10-year-old nephew hurting him and trying to molest him. I confronted my parents and my brother about allowing this behavior to go on, and Mom said to forget about it. Dad said nothing. Now my mother has disowned me and will have nothing to do with my children. I have no other family, and this hurts. How can I get my parents to admit that my bully of a nephew has a serious problem? On the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown Dear Edge: Your nephew does indeed have a problem, but you cannot force your parents to address it. Your job is to protect your children. If that means keeping them away from your brother, your parents, your nephew or anyone else, then that is what you do. If the nephew molested your son, you could report the situation to the authorities. Please look for family in your community and church. There are plenty of older adults who would love to be surrogate grandparents for your sons and would treat them with the caring and consideration they deserve. Dear Annie: I taught in the Maryland public school system for many years before retiring 10 years ago. Every year at Christmastime, the students gave me Christmas ornaments. Some were homemade from individual students, and others were large and from the whole class. Of course, I thanked each of them. But as the years went on, my appreciation grew as I took them out each season to decorate my tree. I wrote their names on the ornaments, so each year I am able to think lovingly of those children. They continue to make my Christmas special. To their parents, I thank you for allowing me to teach your children. Hopefully, those children will have fond memories about some way in which I made them feel special. They were certainly special to me. They were one of the reasons I loved to teach. I still think of them and wonder what kind of young adults theyve become. It was a privilege to help shape their young minds and whet their appetites for learning. I wish them all well and hope they enjoy much success in life. Merry Christmas and happy Hanukkah! With much love from their 5th grade teacher Mrs. Helen Gromadzki, The Villages, Fla. Dear Helen: Your letter was so sweet, we had to print it. We hope all of your former students have a chance to see it and possibly reconnect to let you know how their lives have turned out. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Hurting in Miami, who said her friend of 20 years married some wealthy young man and then cut off contact. You mentioned in your response that her new husband may be controlling and trying to isolate his new bride. I want to emphasize this point, especially because the woman is young and may have no experience with this type of controlling person. Please tell Miami to try to keep in touch with her friend by email or phone and let her know she is there for her. This same thing happened to a dear friend. Her new husband was wonderful to her before marriage, but afterward turned into a control freak who isolated her from her family and friends. We were trying to get her out of this toxic situation, but before we could do anything, he threatened her with a gun, and it accidentally went off, and she died.
