Kenney to present chairmans agenda CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS Commissioner John JJ Kenney, the new chairman, will present his agenda at Tuesdays regular meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). Kenney will report his findings from his research with county staff of the areas identified needing special focus for the year ahead. A chairmans agenda sets out particular goals to be reached during that commissioners term as chairman. At 2 p.m., the board will conduct a public hearing to listen to residents comments about using the uniform method to levy, collect and enforce next years non-ad valorem special assessments to provide fire protection services and facilities, storm water services and facilities and roadway maintenance, improvements and services. These would be new fees on residents tax bills for the budget year that will start on Oct.1, 2014, and be assessed throughout the unincorporated and incorporated areas of the county. The board is expected to adopt and authorize a resolution to use the uniform method of collecting and provide an effective date.

Marnie Ward on board for Citrus Countys youths Cold snap hits hard Leading 4-H in 2014 Associated PressPHILADELPHIA A powerful storm that crept across the country dumped a mix of snow, freezing rain and sleet on the Mid-Atlantic region and headed northeast Sunday, turning NFL playing fields in Pennsylvania into winter wonderlands, threatening as much as a foot of snow in Delaware and New Jersey and raising concerns about a messy morning commute. The storm forced the cancellation of thousands of flights across the U.S. and slowed traffic on roads, leading to a number of accidents, including a fatal crash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Morgantown that led to a series of fenderbenders involving 50 cars. What was forecast in the Philadelphia area to be a tame storm system with about an inch of snow followed by rain mushroomed into a fullblown snowstorm that snarled traffic along Interstate 95 in Pennsylvania from the Delaware to New Jersey state lines. Paul Jones, 24, a youth hockey coach from Warminster in the Philadelphia suburbs, was on his way to a game in Lancaster when he got stuck along with his fiancee, another coach and three players in a major backup on the turnpike.

No, they are not heading to the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa or to St. Augustine for a ghostly tour. Instead, approximately 3,000 ambulatory veterans a year are transported to a Veterans Administration medical facility in either Gainesville or The Villages for appointments or treatments. The patients range from young able-bodied men and women receiving minor treatment to disabled veterans and others who need frequent hospital care. Joe Stephens, a Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Transportation Network driver, said The Villages route may soon become obsolete if funds are not raised for a new van for transportation. Our loaner van has 276,000 miles on it, Stephens said. Im not worried about it not being kept up. But if it no longer becomes cost effective for the VA to keep that van going it will be taken out of service. If it is taken out of service there goes our second route to The Villages for those who need a ride to their appointments there. With the odometer reflecting the vans history, Stephens is heading up fundraising efforts to purchase a new van. He said the funds for the van are the responsibility of private fundraising. No tax dollars are permitted to be used in purchasing a new van. ERYN WORTHINGTON/ChronicleDisabled American Veterans Transportation Network driver Joe Stephens is soliciting donations from organizations and businesses throughout the county to fund a new van to transport veterans to and from their medical appointments in Gainesville and The Villages. Associated PressBob Gannon of Hockessin, Del., says he has a snow blower, but decided to use a snow shovel for now as the first snow of the season rolled into the region Sunday.

Jones said in an interview from the car, where he was a passenger and had been at a standstill for more than an hour. People are in and out of their vehicles, he said. Kids are having a snowball fight on the side of the road, making snow angels, people are walking their dogs. The National Weather Service said the low pressure system from North Carolina north to New England was being fed by disturbances from the southwest and moist air off the Atlantic. The forecast called for the wintry mix to continue through Sunday, turning to rain early Monday. Total snow accumulation in some sections of southeastern Pennsylvania, Dela ware and southern New Jersey could reach 9 to 11 inches, while other areas could see as little as an inch or 2, said Valerie Meola, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, N.J. The snow fell so heavily in Philadelphia on Sunday that yard markers at Lincoln Financial Field where the Eagles beat the Detroit Lions were completely obscured. It was almost as bad in Pittsburgh, where the snow intensified after opening kickoff. Philadelphia fan Dave Hamilton, of Ivyland, layered up for the game, wearing an Eagles shirt topped with an Eagles sweatshirt and Eagles winter coat. Twenty-seven years Ive been a season-ticket holder, Ive never seen snow at the game like this, he said. It just kept coming down. But we are all having fun out there. Philadelphia International Airport had a temporary ground stop Sunday afternoon with snow totals around 4 to 6 inches. Spokeswoman Stacey Jackson said a number of passengers were expected to remain in the airport overnight since area hotels had been full for several days. She said staff would hand out pillows and blankets to travelers to make them feel at home even though they are not.A2MONDAY, DECEMBER9, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION Quality Consignments Accepted 4851 West State Road 40 Ocala, FL 34482 Mon-Fri 8am-5pm 352-351-4951 www.weeksauction.com #AU110, #AB82 Over 150+ 2WD & 4WD Tractors, Loaders, Backhoes, Excavators, Forklifts, Dozers, Compressors, Trailers, Golf Carts, Turf Equip., Farm Implements, 90+ Cars, Trucks, Vans (Marion & Citrus County Sheriff, & City of Gainesville). 000GVFN Large Public Auction 12/13/13 9 am Live internet bidding available at www.Proxibid.com/Weeks New Location Inside Crystal River Mall (Next to K-Mart) Must present coupon.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration official Blair Mase said wildlife workers spotted the dead whales Sunday afternoon on Snipe Point, about six miles north of Sugarloaf Key. That brings the overall death toll to 22. The pod of 51 shortfinned pilot whales was first spotted by a fishing guide Tuesday in the shallow waters off a remote section of the Everglades. The species is one of the most commonly involved in mass strandings. STATE& LOCAL Page A3MONDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Gun-Control Renewal: On a non-record voice vote, the House on Dec. 3 renewed for 10 years a statute outlawing firearms capable of evading X-ray machines at airports and walk-through metal detectors used by airports and other facilities. The bill (HR 3626) is now before the Senate, where it is likely to be passed without change and sent to President Obama before the law expires Dec. 9. Because this was a voice vote, there is no record of where individual members stood on the legislation. Financial Deregulation: The House on December 4 voted, 254-159, to strip the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial-regulation law of its requirement that most private-equity firms register with the Securities and Exchange Commission and submit to SEC reporting rules and other regulations. A yes vote was to send the GOP-sponsored bill (HR 1105) to the Senate, where it is likely to be shelved. Rich Nugent, Yes. To Continue SEC Regulation: The House on December 4 defeated, 186-225, a bid by Democrats to retain Securities and Exchange Commission regulation of most private-equity firms under HR 1105 (above), but with simplified rules that would reduce filing costs and cut red tape while still yielding important information to investors and regulators. A yes vote was to continue SEC regulation of private-equity firms. Nugent, No. Outsourcing U.S. Jobs: The House on December 4 defeated, 185-227, a motion to continue Securities and Exchange Commission regulation under HR 1105 (above) of any private-equity firm with a controlling stake in companies that send U.S. jobs abroad. A yes vote was to adopt the Democratic-sponsored motion. Nugent, No. Abusive Patent Litigation: The House on Dec. 5 voted, 325-91, to give courts more tools for curbing the abusive business and litigation strategy known as patent trolling. The practice consists of holders of weak patents collecting settlements from start-ups and small firms that cannot afford the high cost of defending themselves against patent-infringement charges. A yes vote was to send HR 3309 to the Senate, where it is likely to advance. Nugent, Yes. Key votes ahead: In the week of Dec. 9, both chambers will take up a bipartisan budget plan. The House will debate Medicare payments to doctors as well as a short-term extension of farm programs and food-stamp funding. The Senate will consider a gun-control measure and resume debate on the 2014 military budget, and may also hold confirmation votes on presidential nominees. 2013 Thomas Reports Inc.

ONLINE POLL RESULTSHOW YOUR LAWMAKERS VOTEDKey votes for the week ending Dec. 6 by Voterama in Congress From wire reports Insurance agents feeling left out Associated PressMIAMI When insurance agent Kelly Fristoe recently spent 30 minutes helping a client pick a mid-level health plan and the federal marketplace website froze, he called the governments hotline and tried to finish the application. But the operator refused to credit Fristoe as an agent on the application, meaning he wouldnt get the commission or be listed as the follow-up contact if his client needed help again later. The Wichita Falls, Texas, insurance agent is one of many brokers around the country finding frustration as they try to help customers navigate the Affordable Care Acts marketplaces while earning the commissions theyve long built their businesses around. Some insurers and insurance agents are calling on President Barack Obamas administration to allow them to bypass healthcare.gov and enroll consumers directly amid growing complaints about problems with enrollment information generated from the website. The so-called back-end problems could mean that consumers who think theyve successfully signed up for a health plan, may find themselves unable to access their coverage come January. The problems include enrollment information thats rendered practically useless by errors, duplication or garbles. Efforts to fix the issues are under way. Nearly 70,000 agents and brokers have been certified nationwide to sell health insurance on the federal exchange. Many say they could be the troubled health laws best ambassadors with the potential to boost lackluster enrollment figures only about 27,000 had enrolled via the federal website nationwide in the first month. But instead, many agents said theyre continually met by obstacles. You look at this dismal number they have of how many people have enrolled on healthcare.gov, said Fristoe. If they would just relax and loosen up, because me and all of my associates across this nation want to help these consumers get enrolled into the market. Federal health officials announced Nov.22 that theyd fixed some portions of the website to allow more insurers and insurance agents to enroll consumers directly. The feds are asking roughly 16 insurers, agents and brokers in Florida, Texas and Ohio to test it out and give detailed feedback about the fixes, hoping to expand it to other states in the coming weeks. Health officials have been vague about the scope of the botched applications insurers are receiving and what steps theyre taking to fix the problems. One bug related to Social Security numbers, which federal health officials said accounted for more than 80percent of insurers problems, was fixed last weekend. But the problems have persisted, prompting the head of the National Association of Health Underwriters to write the president Tuesday, urging him to make additional fixes a priority, saying agents have a significant backlog of clients with incomplete applications. We want to make it clear that a number of back-end technical obstacles still exist for health insurance agents and brokers trying to actively support the federal marketplace, said CEO Janet Trautwein.

A police report said 24year-old Barron Hilton told authorities a man struck him in the face after the two had an argument at a party Friday in a Miami Beach home. Hilton suffered deep cuts on his forehead and nose. He posted a photo of the injuries online. Neither Hilton nor two witnesses could identify the suspect. According to the report, witnesses told police the suspect wanted Hilton to leave and hit him in the face with an unknown object. The suspect then fled in a dark green SUV. Hilton refused treatment from fire rescue workers.Frozen tops box office with $31.6MNEW YORK In its second weekend at the box office, the Disney animated tale Frozen finally cooled off The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, while the weeks lone new wide-release Out of the Furnace wasnt a match for either blockbuster. According to studio estimates Sunday, Frozen led the multiplexes with a haul of $31.6 million over the weekend, taking over the top spot from Catching Fire. Lionsgates Hunger Games sequel had topped the box office for the last two weeks, but slid to second with $27 million in its third week of release. Relativity Medias steel-town drama Out of the Furnace, starring Christian Bale and Casey Affleck posed no challenge for the bigger blockbuster holdovers. It opened with $5.3 million, good enough for third place on whats typically a quiet early December weekend, sandwiched between Thanksgiving and the coming holiday season releases. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. 1. Frozen, $31.6million ($30.6million international). 2. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, $27million ($44.3million international). 3. Out of the Furnace, $5.3million. 4.

The only tax dollars that are used for the vans are for maintenance and fuel, he said. If we want a new van for the veterans to get to their appointments then we have to raise it privately through businesses, organizations and citizens. Stephens is soliciting for $20,000 in donations to help fund a new transport van through the DAV from the Ford Motor Company in Ohio. The actual cost of the van is $35,000, but the state and national DAV organizations contribute the remaining funds. We dont charge anyone to ride the van, he said. Its a small compensation when you think of a guy or gal who has given up years of their lives to keep this nation what it is. Many times we give donations to organizations and never know where our monies are being spent. Your contribution for this new van will be visible evidence of what a community can do to help its veterans. He said Citrus County has approximately 20,000 to 22,000 residents who are veterans. The van picks up patients at points along the way Inverness, Hernando, Holder and Dunnellon. The local veterans service office is responsible for the transportation schedules. To make an appointment for transportation, call 352-527-5915. Chapter 70, in Inverness, is the not-for-profit entity through which Stephens is collecting donations. Contributions are taxdeductible and can be mailed to: DAV Van Project, c/o Joe Stephens, 2797 W. Xenox Drive, Citrus Springs, FL 34433. He asked that all checks be made out to the DAV Van Project and cash cannot be accepted. For more information or to have Stephens speak to your group about the DAV Van Project, call 352-4895242 or visit davfl70.yktc.us and click on van service.

VANContinued from Page A1 County Administrator Brad Thorpe will ask the board to confirm the appointment of Jenette B. Collins as the director of the Planning and Development Department. Thorpe also will ask the board to allow Animal Services to open its shelter to the public for pet adoptions on Monday, Dec.23, a day when it ordinarily would be closed, to avoid having the shelter closed for four consecutive days. Commissioner Scott Adams has requested board discussions on four topics: Duke Energy, County Road 491 Medical Corridor road project, landfill bids and the ethics ruling. No specific details were provided on the agenda. Kenny, as chairman, will announce his selections for liaison appointments for 2014. As some groups require board selection for the boards representative, the board will select those to serve as liaison on the Citrus County Economic Development Council, the Southwest Florida Water Management District, the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority, the Citrus County Canvassing Board and the Value Adjustment Board. Acting County Attorney Kerry Parsons will ask the board to complete paperwork to settle a longstanding issue regarding property owned by the Homosassa Seafood Company. The Citrus County Port Authority on Tuesday will be asked to approve a settlement agreement in the claim for attorneys fees and costs in an action brought by Bob Schweickert Jr. regarding the selection process when the port authority took bids last year for a consultant to conduct a feasibility study for Port Citrus. Board members will be asked to pay the sum of $44,000 to Jonathan D. Kaney Jr., Schweickerts legal counsel, no later than Dec.31. The payment and settlement would be made without admission of fault or lack thereof by either party. The port authority would waive the right to file an appeal.

Associated PressPARIS Edouard Molinaro, nominated for an Oscar for directing La Cage aux Folles, a French farce about a gay couple that struck a chord with a broad range of audiences, has died at 85. French President Francois Hollandes office confirmed the death in a statement of condolence Saturday, praising Molinaro as great, appealing and original and a director who conquered the public and the admiration of his peers at the same time. The statement didnt provide further details. Molinaros career spanned six decades, including crime films and historical adaptations. He was best known for 1978s La Cage aux Folles, which was nominated for several Oscars. The movie, about two men with a transvestite club in St. Tropez who try to temporarily pretend theyre straight, was remade as The Birdcage in 1996 with Robin Williams and Nathan Lane.

La Cage aux Folles director dies at age 85 Associated PressFrench director Edouard Molinaro arrives for the screening of his movie The Time Travelers Wife in this file photo dated Sept. 4, 2009, in Deauville, Normandy, France. According to news reports, Molinaro died Saturday of lung failure. FoodPROGRAMS Wine fakers get sharper Industry fights back Associated PressSAINT-EMILION, France An FBI agent recently showed Arnaud de Laforcade a file with several labels supposedly from 1947 bottles of Chateau Cheval Blanc, one of Frances finest wines. To the SaintEmilion vineyards CFO, they were clearly fakes too new looking, not on the right kind of paper. But customers may be more easily duped. Regardless of his skill, the counterfeiter had ambition: 1947 is widely considered an exceptionally good year, and Cheval Blancs production that year has been called the greatest Bordeaux ever. The current average price paid for a bottle at auction is about $11,500, according to true bottle.com, which tracks auctions and helps consumers spot fakes. Counterfeiting has likely dogged wine as long as it has been produced. In the 18th century, King Louis XV ordered the makers of Cotes du Rhone to brand their barrels with CDR before export to prevent fraud. But it is getting more sophisticated and more ambitious, particularly as bottle prices rise due to huge demand in new markets, mainly in Asia. After decades of silence, producers across the $217-billion industry are finally beginning to talk about the problem and ways to combat it. The astronomical prices paid for fine wine these days makes the bottles more than just a luxury item, said Spiros Malandrakis, senior analyst of the alcoholic drinks market at Euromonitor, a research firm. They become a currency in themselves. And as with every currency, at some point, people want to find ways to manipulate that and make more money.SIZING UP THE PROBLEMExperts say its impossible to know the size of the counterfeit market. Partially thats because many sales happen privately and because it is woven into a legal market, unlike, say, cocaine trafficking. Many known counterfeits likely go unreported because the victims are embarrassed and chagrined to lose their investment. Industry insiders, meanwhile, have long ignored the problem collectively as producers were afraid of scaring customers. But many experts agree on one point: the quantity of rare bottles from illustrious vineyards being auctioned is just too high to not include fakes. Experts fear this problem will only continue to grow and wont be confined to Asia, as technology makes it possible to make better fakes and steadily rising auction prices make it worth the while.FIGHTING BACKBernard Medina is the director of a lab run by the French Finance Ministry in Bordeaux devoted to sniffing out fake wine. Medinas lab runs a series of tests on bottles that come their way: measuring the isotopes of certain elements can determine generally which country a wine comes from, measuring the trace radioactivity in a bottle can broadly determine its age. Wines that claim to be from before the invention of the atom bomb, for instance, should have no cesium137. By contrast, bottles from the 1960s, when nuclear tests happened almost weekly, show a noticeable spike in cesium. The lab also makes its own wines from grapes collected about every 30 miles across Western France. Each of those wines then serves as a reference point for a given year and micro-region.CODE OF SILENCEHindering the industrys ability to shake out the forgeries is the wine industrys secretiveness. It is a discrete business, conducted quietly among a relatively small number of people who know one another. When a bad apple worms its way into that circle, many it seems would rather swallow their losses than rat out their friends and admit their own ignorance. Associated PressAn example of a counterfeit bottle of wine is displayed Nov.12 in a lab run by the French Finance ministry in Bordeaux, southwestern France.

up to the University of Florida where I became a true Gator and received some degrees in zoology and in environmental micro-biology. I finished up with doctorate in environmental toxicology. I did some work with landfills and the landfill right over here as part of my doctoral work and had a few publications. Im very engaged in my community and Ive been a 4-H leader for the past several years in a variety of clubs, primarily Lecanto Levis, where I was a leader for forest ecology. Had a bunch of great kids that really wanted to get out into natural Florida and learn all about the trees and the different animals. And luckily, when Amy Duncan retired from her position, I had the opportunity to move up into becoming a professional extension agent. I have been very fortunate that so many things are going on right now and opportunities have opened up in Extension for a whole new breath of fresh air and some new ideas. Were really looking forward to growing the office and growing the opportunities we can provide for our kids. CHRONICLE: Do you have any other special activities or interests outside of work? WARD: I love to sew; I sew and I quilt. I love chickens. Im going to be appearing on The Anne Black Show and were going to be doing a little series about building chicken tractors (moveable chicken coops) in your backyard. Hopefully, well get a lot of people to tune in and see the model, learn about building one for themselves and having chickens in their backyard. CHRONICLE: What brought you to the 4-H position? WARD: It was a combination of my involvement as a 4-H volunteer and education background. Ive been very interested in continuing my educational work and luckily this opportunity presented itself and I could finally give back to my community. Ive been teaching for seven years down here at the college and used Extension a lot in my teaching opportunities for my classes so it was just a natural progression that I was moving to a role with Extension. CHRONICLE: Can describe your position as 4-H Extension agent? WARD: The 4-H agent is devoted to growing the 4-H program. We do some organizational work where we promote the 4-H programs. We recruit volunteers. We then train those volunteers and get them the materials they need to be successful in the educational activities they will be presenting to their club members. We have a variety of clubs; we have animal clubs and we have lots of project clubs and community clubs. So there is a whole variety of volunteers involved in promoting our educational opportunities. Theres a lot to be done, making sure everyone has what they need and keeping 4-H at the forefront of opportunities for the entire community. CHRONICLE: What kinds of response have you gotten from 4-H and the agriculture community? WARD: I am so fortunate. I have had amazing positive reactions from all of our stakeholders; from the master gardeners, the Agricultural Alliance, my 4-H leaders, the 4-H members and the 4-H Foundation. I have been working a lot with the foundation lately. We just finished up the Citrus Stampede Rodeo. What a great success; we actually had over 3,500 attendees at the rodeo for the Friday and Saturday night. Its just amazing and so heart-warming that there are so many people in our county who are engaged in and positive about the program we have. They are so supportive I just cant say that enough. They are just great people. Youd love to take them all home and have them at your Thanksgiving dinner table, because they are just great people. CHRONICLE: Looking ahead, how is 2014 shaping up for Citrus County 4-H? WARD: Its going to be a very busy year for 4-H. One of my big objectives is to bring some more STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) opportunities into our county. There is so much growth going on right now in STEM education and there is not enough done, theres never enough done for the youth to promote these educational opportunities and give them the tools they need. And we open up opportunities thats probably one of the bigger things. A lot of the research now is showing that even if they are not the A-student or excelling in math, just getting them to be engaged and be involved in mathscience programs can steer them later on in life toward those types of degrees and careers. So its not only about the top students; not everyone is going to be at the top of that grade scale, because the grade doesnt really measure who you are, who you can potentially be. So thats one of my big objectives moving forward into 2014. We are also working on growing our programs and getting more people involved and engaged in our summer camp. Were going to be offering some new day camps, maybe for spring break. Were also planning a Clover Tea Party; were going to be having some manners lessons. Its going to be a great event. CHRONICLE: Is participation in Citrus County 4-H expanding, shrinking or status quo? WARD: Weve seen some growth lately. We actually have a couple of new clubs that have started and of course we are always in need of more volunteers. We know that there are a lot of people out there who have the skills and talents that we would like to target. We would live to have them come on in and share their history with us, because thats how we grow our community and thats what 4-H is all about our community and supporting each and every one of us. Thats what were working toward. CHRONICLE: Are there nonagricultural aspects to 4-H that might appeal to young people who do not have agricultural connections? WARD: Yes! We have a ton of opportunities. We are actually going to be doing some rocket building and some robot building. Well have a little weekend workshop coming up very soon. Were working on getting some materials in here that will allow people to construct their own little mini robot. You will not have to ask your mother for that $150 robot set for Christmas this year. Just hang on for a couple months and you can come and learn how to bring your mothers junk drawer to the Extension office and build your very own robot. We are not just about agriculture. Were not just about dairy cows and steers and pigs and chickens. You can come and engage in sewing, public speaking, wind energy and alternative sources, gardening and canning. There is camping, fishing, bicycling, cats, dogs; the list goes on and on. I just want to encourage more people to just come and find out what we have, because you going to really be surprised.

MEDINA Ocala Star-BannerOCALA When Lionsgate Films contacted Tom Warriner almost two years ago about the herd of black Friesians he oversees at the Grand Oaks Resort and Museum in southern Marion County, he never thought two of them, Dieuwe and Tristan, would play prominent roles in the recent released film The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The pair were among 17 Friesians used in the movie, but Dieuwe and Tristan were the two chosen to pull the chariot carrying the two main characters, Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence, and Peeta Mellark, portrayed by Josh Hutcherson. They are beautiful horses. We probably have the biggest Friesian herd in Florida, said Warriner, who is the general manager at the resort, which holds concerts and special events throughout the year. The horses are used at the resort to pull carriages. They also compete in driving events, which in addition to formal carriages and dress, known as dressage, also includes speeding through a cross country course with water and other obstacles. We purchased them from Holland and brought them over as 4or 5-year-olds, Warriner said. Dieuwe is now 20 and Tristan is 15. Both are geldings.Movie magicFor those not familiar with The Hunger Games trilogy, the story revolves around the annual tournament where one boy and one girl from each of 12 districts is selected to fight to the death. The lone survivor wins the Hunger Games and, in addition to personal riches, their district also is rewarded. The participants, known as tributes, are randomly selected by the government to attend the Hunger Games. They have no choice in the matter. The two tributes from each district enter a grand arena on a chariot seemingly led without a driver. The procession is a spectacle in which flamboyant costumes are worn by the tributes in an effort to make the grandest impression. But what is shown in the film is mostly movie magic. While the glamorous costumes and chariots were real, the visually huge arena scene was mostly shot in the parking lot of a speedway outside of Atlanta. They had tons of these shipping containers stacked all around and then those were draped in green fabric, said Suzie Dixon, who was one of the hidden drivers that lead the Friesians in the grand procession. Dixon had to crouch in front of the actors, covered in a black blanket, as she drove the horses while looking out a small slit in the front of the chariot. All I could see was the horses hocks. It was very interesting, Dixon said. During the shoot, it was like you were living in your own little world with the film crew and everything. Then we had our own little world inside the world taking care of the 17 horses.Long daysDixon, who winters in Ocala and trains at Grand Oaks, has been driving carriages for years. She said the filming was intense and most shooting days started before light and ended after dark. Youd get up at two in the morning to start braiding their manes and wrapping their legs. Then we had to get them loaded and drive about an hour to the shooting location so we could have them there by 8 or 9 a.m., Dixon said.Seeing starsShe said she never got to meet Jennifer Lawrence, but did see her from afar. She is very good looking. All the actors were beautiful, and so beautifully dressed. There was this one gorgeous man, who was half-naked and painted in gold, that I remember, Dixon said. It was just so much fun.Good careDixon is not unfamiliar with production work. She was a television casting director until the mid-1990s. During The Hunger Games shoot, she was especially impressed with the care the animals received. They took great care of those horses. They would check the horses constantly and made sure they had the best of everything. The ASPCA was there. There was a lot of concern for the health and welfare of the horses, she said. Back in the real world, Dieuwe and Tristan work every day. But the movie stars are available for viewing by the public from 8a.m. to 4p.m. each day at the Grand Oaks show barn. They may be stars now, but they still have to work for their grain, Warriner said.Information from: Ocala StarBanner, http://www.starbanner. com/
OPINION Page A10MONDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2013 Public input essential to business of running countyMany of the decisions of the Board of County Commissioners over the last few years have been less than stellar, but their recent action to restrict public input has to be the most insulting and arrogant of them all. Residents have disagreed with the commissioners on Ottawa, Meadowcrest, Port Citrus, Fire Service consoli da tion, and their refusal to look at cutting spending before raising taxes to correct their years of deficit spending. I have tried to offer positive, forward looking alternatives but the commissioners (excluding Commissioner Scott Adams) have decided they no longer wish to hear what citizens have to say before voting. It is the height of arrogance for any elected official to assume that they know everything about a subject and cannot learn anything from the taxpayer. It is even more egregious to exclude those same citizens from the decision-making process. By taking this current action, the commissioners (less Adams) have basically said they have already made up their minds on an issue before the meeting even begins. Public input on motions, prior to the commissioners voting, needs to be restored immediately so that citizens may resume their rightful role. It is no wonder that commission meetings are so sparsely attended. When people are made to feel unwelcome, and unneeded, it is simpler to stay at home. This Board of Commissioners (less Adams) has let it be known, loud and clear that they feel the citizens of our community are an interruption of their business. It is my belief that the people are the purpose of a commissioners job, not an interruption of it.Ronald Kitchen Jr. Homosassa WASHINGTON In his disproportionate praise of the six-month agreement with Iran, Barack Obama said: For the first time in nearly a decade, we have halted the progress of the Iranian nuclear program. But if the program, now several decades old, had really been halted shortly after U.S. forces invaded neighboring Iraq, we would not be desperately pursuing agreements to stop it now, as about 10,000 centrifuges spin to enrich uranium. If Denmark wanted to develop nuclear weapons, we would consider that nation daft but not dangerous. Irans nuclear program is alarming because Irans regime is opaque in its decision-making, frightening in its motives (measured by its rhetoric) and barbaric in its behavior. Manes, writes Kenneth M. Pollack of the Brookings Institution, from whose name the word manicheanderives, was a Persian who conceived of the world as being divided into good and evil. But Pollack says suicidal tendencies are not among the irrationalities of the Iranian leadership, who are not insane millenarians. In Unthinkable: Iran, the Bomb, and American Strategy, Pollack argues that Irans nuclear program has been, so far, more beneficial to the United States than to Iran. Because of the anxieties and sanctions the program has triggered, Iran is more isolated, weak, impoverished and internally divided than at any time since it became a U.S. adversary in 1979. And one possible Pollack thinks probable result of Iran acquiring a nuclear arsenal would be Saudi Arabia doing so. Pollack considers this perhaps the most compelling reason for Iran to stop just short of weaponization. Writing several months before the recent agreement was reached, Pollack said that, given Irans adamant refusal to give up all enrichment, it will retain at least a breakout capability the ability to dash to weaponization in a matter of months, even weeks. Hence the need to plan serious, aggressive containment. In September 2012, the Senate voted 90-1 for a nonbinding resolution ruling out any policy that would rely on containment as an option in response to the Iranian nuclear threat. The implication was that containment is a tepid and passive policy. But it was not such during the 45 years the United States contained the Soviet Union. And containment can involve much more than mere deterrence of Iran, against which the United States has already waged cyber warfare. Pollack believes that were it not for Israel repeatedly sounding the alarm, Iran probably would have crossed the nuclear threshold long ago. But if a nuclear Iran is for Israel unthinkable because it is uncontainable, Israels only self-reliant recourse a nuclear attack on Irans nuclear infrastructure is unthinkable. And, Pollack thinks, unnecessary. The existence of Israels nuclear arsenal is a sufficient deterrent: The Iranian leadership is aggressive, antiAmerican, anti-status quo, antiSemitic, duplicitous, and murderous, but it is not irrational, and overall, it is not imprudent. There will be no constitutional impropriety if Congress recoils against the easing of sanctions and votes to impose even stiffer ones on Iran. The president has primary but not exclusive responsibility for foreign policy. It is time for a debate about the role of sanctions in a containment policy whose ultimate objective is regime change. For many decades prior to 1989, humanity was haunted by the possibility that facets of modernity bureaucracy and propaganda technologies could produce permanent tyrannies impervious to change. (See Hannah Arendts The Origins of Totalitarianism.) In Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell wrote, If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face for ever. Since 1989, however, tyrannies seem more brittle. And Pollack believes the basic ingredients of regime change exist in Iran, which today is a land of labor protests and political demonstrations. Pollack may be too sanguine when he says that, since the brutal smashing of the Green Revolution of June 2009, the Islamic Republic has been delegitimized and is starting to hollow out. His fear is that even massive U.S. air strikes would only delay the danger that provoked them, and thus might prove to be nothing more than a prelude to invasion, as they were in Iraq and almost were in Kosovo. The logic of nuclear deterrence has not yet failed in the 64 years since the world acquired its second nuclear power. This logic does not guarantee certainty, but, says Pollack, the small residual doubt cannot be allowed to be determinative. His basic point is: Our choices are awful, but choose we must. Containment is the least awful response to Irans coming nuclear capability.George Wills email address is email@example.com.

Members of a working group for the springs, an offshoot of the citys waterfronts advisory board created to address problems related to overcrowding at the springs, have suggested prohibiting open containers on boats in the canal east of the Kings Bay Drive bridge. The group, comprised of homeowners, a sheriffs captain, a tour boat operator and representatives of state and federal governments, including former Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge manager Michael Lusk, recommend the ban in hopes it will cut down on noise caused by rowdy boaters and congestion propagated by boats crowding the access area. Crowding and the sometimes unruly visitors, fueled by liquid frivolity, can make it difficult for officials to maintain safety standards in the manatee haven. A ban on open containers could provide a tangible means for local officials to promote a more pleasant experience for everyone visitors and homeowners alike. While the suggested ban certainly makes good sense in theory, it will be up to local, state and federal agencies working together before any true remedy will be effective. A major problem facing law enforcement now is the inability for local authorities to enforce federal laws and the limitations federal and state authorities have in policing or overseeing local statutes or ordinances. Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston said he plans to meet with various agencies in an effort to determine enforcement duties. Lets hope that the meeting will prove fruitful and local, state and federal leaders, along with area nature enthusiasts and homeowners, can come together and create a safer and more enjoyable experience for everyone who appreciates the nature and beauty of Three Sisters Springs.

Thanks from Eagles Mash Bash organizersEvery year, for the past seven years, we at the Fraternal Order of Eagles 3992 have organized a Mash Bash to raise money to send Christmas goodie boxes to our troops overseas. We would like to thank all the people who donated, supported and helped us in any way. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of local businesses who donated to this cause in these economic times. Thank you to Tires Plus, Long John Silvers, Kmart, The Flower Basket, Ridgeline Tire and Service, Papa Johns Pizza, Apopka Marine, Joes Family Restaurant, The Rustic Ranch, Subway, Publix, Taylor Rental, Country Nails, Chefs of Napoli, Mamas Kuntry Kafe, The Hens Nest, McDonalds (U.S. 41), Big Lots, B&W Rexall, Advanced Auto, Auto Zone, Winn Dixie, Walmart, OReilys Auto, Beads in Hand, Regal Nails Walmart, Discount Auto, Papa Js Cafe, Brooklyn Deli Too, Tire Kingdom, Country Nails, Bobs Car Care, Eveready Fire, The Little Flower Shop, Joes Deli, Inverness Golf and Country Club, Good Fellows Barber shop, Historic Downtown Affordable Automotive, Ace Hardware, Anytime Fitness, Shauna Baxter Massage Therapist, Sonnys BarBQ, and Solar Nails. We would especially like to thank Paula Hanley for her help in obtaining these donations. She worked very hard to make this Mash Bash a complete success. Thank you to all of you. Please support these generous businesses.Rhonda ONeal and Deanna Langley Fraternal Order of Eagles 3992 Mash Bash CommitteeDragon boat race a successThe club and community teams who participated in the inaugural Dragon Boat Festival last weekend, at Lake Hernando Park, made this a memorable event. The weather did not scare very many away, and in fact, added to their competitive spirit! With more than 1,500 people attending and 30 teams the event was not only a success, but a fun-filled day of camaraderie and hard work. All of the first time community teams learned quickly that navigating these 800-pound, 42-foot vessels, is not an easy task to accomplish. This was not a challenge of the fittest but truly about discipline and quickly learning to know your team. Everyone watched in amazement as the club teams eloquently finessed these human-powered water crafts through the lake. It truly can only be described as dynamic! A special thanks to all the teams and sponsors who participated in the event. So many businesses showed their support in various ways. Five Citrus County businesses; The Citrus County Chronicle, Value Dental, Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union and The Citrus Orthopedic and Joint Institute, were silver sponsors, not only showing their support through donations but also by putting together teams to race in the event. The event would not have happened without the many hours of hard work put in by Apopka Marine in Inverness, who set up the race lanes, had start and finish boats and most importantly had chase boats to ensure everyones safety. We cannot overlook the hard work of Ace Hardware who assisted in the unloading and loading the large Dragon Boats, and The Citrus County Grounds Maintenance and Road Maintenance group for preparing the grounds and roadways. The Elks Club of Hernando was very generous as a partner in this event by providing us with access to their beautiful site, cooking all day for the teams and providing us a warm location for the team after party. I think everyone was ready for a warm spot to sit after a very wet day. With continued support from the county and local communities this event will continue to grow over the next several years. If your business or organization is interested in sponsorship or would just like to be a part of our next event please email Andrew.smith@ bocc.citrus.fl.us. So paddles up and we hope to see you in March. Andrew G. Smith events coordinator Citrus County Parks and RecreationThanks for helping with Toys for TotsSince 1775 the Marine Corps has defended freedom and Democracy a duty they have fulfilled with honor, courage, and commitment. As they have fulfilled that duty, Marines have earned a well deserved reputation of toughness. But theres another side to the Marine Corps the side that springs from a genuine concern for the communities in which they live, and a deep compassion for the under-privileged children of America. Thats the side that exemplifies the spirit of the Marine Corps. That side is found in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. The honor of administering the Toys for Tots program in Citrus County falls exclusively on the shoulders of the Marine Corps League Detachment 819, Morgan Patterson Commandant. These Marines who have served our nation in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan volunteer their time to insure that every needy child that resides in Citrus County will share the Magic of Christmas. The Toys for Tots goal nationwide is one major toy and a stocking stuffer. How this is accomplished is an amazing story that began in 1947 and is repeated every year to the present. The Toys for Tots Foundation located in Triangle, Va., is the governing entity that provides the guidance and preciseness as to how the program is administered. The Foundation provides all the necessary materials to accomplish the mission locally. Nationwide Toys for Tots average program support services expenses from 2000 through 2012 stands at 97.3 percent. How are these and all toys collected and purchased distributed? Citrus Marines do not sign individuals up for toys except for extenuating circumstances such as children of deceased combat veterans, residents who lost their possessions from fire, and theft. We will go the extra mile to insure their children will not be denied the Magic of Christmas. We have developed a partnership with Citrus United Basket, Salvation Army, Family Resources, and the Citrus Builders Care Association. We provide these local groups toys for distribution. They do the sign-ups. In order to receive our toys these groups have developed a data base of needy Citrus County children. They share their data base to insure equitable distribution. Citrus County residents can only sign-up with one of these agencies. Missed the sign-up? We have an arrangement with Citrus United Basket. They will be there up to Christmas Eve. No needy Citrus County children will go without toys for Christmas. The Toys for Tots Marines have guaranteed to provide the toys to all who qualify. We have already received and distributed several thousand toys to our partners. We have once again partnered with the Inverness Elks Florida Therapy Services and will be providing specialized toys designed to assist in disabled childrens physical therapy. We are able to accomplish this goal through the support of our local businesses, our citizens and the Toys for Tots Foundation. We cannot thank you all enough. Thanks! On behalf of the Marines of Citrus Detachment 819, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. Semper Fi!

Jang Song Thaek formed a faction in the ruling party by creating an illusion about him and distorting and weakening party goals, the dispatch said. World BRIEFS From wire reports Friend recounts last hours Associated PressJOHANNESBURG Nelson Mandela wasnt on life support and had many family members and doctors close by in his final hours, a family friend who was at his bedside said Sunday. Bantu Holomisa told The Associated Press that he had been called to Mandelas home on Thursday by the family so he could visit the anti-apartheid icon before he died. You judge the mood in the house. I know the family. It was not the same family I used to see. Even the call itself, please pop in, we think Madiba is in his last days, Holomisa said. I assume the family was warned by the doctors. The end came soon. The former president died about two hours after the departure of Holomisa, who was a former deputy minister in Mandelas Cabinet. Neither the Mandela family nor the South African government has released details on the final hours of Mandela or given a cause of death. The account by Holomisa, who says he has known Mandela since he stepped out of prison in 1990, sheds some light on Mandelas condition as his life ebbed away and on the mood and scene inside the Mandela home at that time. Holomisa said Mandelas wife Graca and his former wife Winnie, one of Mandelas daughters and several of his grandchildren were in the house Thursday, where somberness prevailed. Mandela appeared to be sleeping calmly, but Holomisa said it was obvious he was finally succumbing to illness. Ive seen people who are on their last hours and I could sense that he is now giving up, said Holomisa, who is the leader of the United Democratic Movement in parliament. Food-tech startups aim to replace eggs and chicken Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO The startup is housed in a garage-like space in San Franciscos techheavy South of Market neighborhood, but it isnt like most of its neighbors that develop software, websites and mobile-phone apps. Its mission is to find plant replacements for eggs. Inside, research chefs bake cookies and cakes, whip up batches of flavored mayonnaise and pan-fry omelets and French toast all without eggs. Funded by prominent Silicon Valley investors and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Hampton Creek Foods seeks to disrupt a global egg industry that backers say wastes energy, pollutes the environment, causes disease outbreaks and confines chickens to tiny spaces. The company, which just started selling its first product Just Mayo mayonnaise at Whole Foods Markets, is part of a new generation of so-called food-tech ventures that aim to change the way we eat. Theres nothing to indicate that this will be a trend that will end anytime soon, said Anand Sanwal, CEO of CB Insights, a firm that tracks venture capital investment. Sustainability and challenges to the food supply are pretty fundamental issues. Venture capital firms, which invest heavily in early-stage technology companies, poured nearly $350 million into foodrelated startups last year, compared with less than $50 million in 2008, according to the firm. Plant-based alternatives to eggs, poultry and other meat could be good for the environment because it could reduce consumption of meat, which requires large amounts of land, water and crops to produce, backers say. It could also benefit peoples health, especially in heavy meateating countries like the U.S., and reduce outbreaks of diseases such as avian flu, they say. The biggest challenge is that people who consume a lot of meat really like meat, and to convince them to try something different may be extremely difficult, said Claire Kremen, faculty co-director of the Berkeley Food Institute at the University of California, Berkeley. The American Egg Board, which represents U.S. producers, said eggs cant be replaced. Our customers have said theyre not interested in egg substitutes. They want real, natural eggs with their familiar ingredients, Mitch Kanter, executive director of the board-funded Egg Nutrition Center, said in a statement. Associated PressVeteran politician and president of the United Democratic Movement (UDM) Bantu Holomisa speaks to the Associated Press during an interview Sunday in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Protests sweep Ukraine Associated PressUkrainian protesters stand atop the monument Sunday after the statue of Vladimir Lenin was toppled by protesters in Kiev, Ukraine. The third week of protests continue Sunday with an estimated 200,000 Ukrainians occupying central Kiev to denounce President Viktor Yanukovychs decision to turn away from Europe and align this ex-Soviet republic with Russia. Country sees largest anti-government protest since 2004 Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Angry antigovernment protesters toppled a statue of former Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin in the center of Kiev on Sunday and blockaded key government buildings amid huge street protests, raising the stakes in an escalating standoff with President Viktor Yanukovych. The biggest protest in the former Soviet republic since Ukraines pro-democracy Orange Revolution in 2004 led the government to fire back. It announced an investigation of opposition leaders for an alleged attempt to seize power and warned the demonstrators they could face criminal charges. The West pressed for a peaceful settlement. Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians flooded the center of Kiev, the capital, to demand Yanukovychs ouster after he ditched ties with the EU in favor of Russia and sent police to break up an earlier protest in the nearly three-week standoff. Ukraine is tired of Yanukovych. We need new rules. We need to completely change those in power, said protester Kostyantyn Meselyuk, 42. Europe can help us. Packing Independence Square as far as the eye could see, Ukrainians waving European Union flags sang the national anthem and shouted Resignation! and Down with the gang! in a reference to Yanukovychs regime. I am convinced that after these events, dictatorship will never survive in our country, world boxing champion and top opposition leader Vitali Klitschko told reporters. People will not tolerate when they are beaten, when their mouths are shut, when their principles and values are ignored. As darkness fell, the conflict escalated further with protesters blockading key government buildings in Kiev with cars, barricades and tents. The protests have had an antiRussian component because Russia had worked aggressively to derail the EU deal with threats of trade retaliation against Ukraine. About half a mile from the main square, one group of antigovernment protesters toppled the citys landmark statue of Lenin and decapitated it Sunday. Protesters then took turns beating on the torso of the fallen statue, while others lined up to collect a piece of the stone. The crowd chanted Glory to Ukraine!

Heck, we might just miss the BCS. Maybe? It sort of worked out this season. Topranked Florida State (13-0) was the only team to get through the regular season unbeaten, and the Seminoles did it in dominating fashion. Auburn (12-1) won the Southeastern Conference, and among the teams with imperfect records the Tigers resume is best. The pairings became official Sunday night when the final BCS standings came out, but theres no question about 1 and 2. Itll be the Noles and Tigers at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 6 for the national championship. In the other marquee bowls:Alabama will play Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl.Clemson will play Ohio State in the Orange Bowl.Michigan State will play Stanford in the Rose Bowl.Baylor will play UCF in the Fiesta Bowl. Of course, Big 12 champion Baylor (11-1) and Big Ten champion Michigan State (12-1) might argue with that top two. But over 16 seasons college football fans have built up what can be called BCS acceptance, learning to live with the fact that there is only room for two. Fans of particularly aggrieved teams (2000 Miami, 2004 Auburn, 2008 Texas, just to name a few) still burn over the slights. Generally, though, by the time the championship game kicked off, most everybody was on board. Now think about this season playing out under next seasons format. In the new world order known as the College Football Playoff, a selection committee will pick four teams to play in two national semifinals. The winners play for the national title. So how would a panel that includes Tom Osborne, Archie Manning and Condoleezza Rice sort out this seasons top four? Florida State and Auburn, of course. And .... Baylor and Michigan State? But what about Pac-12 champion Stanford (11-2)? Sure the Cardinal have two losses, but as Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs said Saturday at the end of a week in which he and the rest of the SEC practically begged voters to overlook the number in the loss column and focus on quality of opposition: I have nine words.

Knights take on Baylor in Fiesta Wild World Challenge finish Potent Bears big challenge for UCF Associated PressSCOTTSDALE, Ariz. The Baylor Bears had been the perennial patsies of the Big 12, stringing together 14 straight losing seasons following the demise of the Southwest Conference in 1996. Art Briles changed the complexion of the program. Capping a steady climb to respectability, the sixth-ranked Bears earned their first conference title since 1980 by beating Texas and were rewarded with a spot in the Fiesta Bowl alongside No. 15 Central Florida on New Years Day. Baylor (11-1) had not put together a winning record in the Big 12 before Briles arrived in 2008, winning three or fewer games nine times. The Bears took baby steps at first, winning four games in 2008 and 2009 before putting together their first winning record since 1995 the next season. Baylor won 10 games in 2011, eight in 2012 and became national title contenders this season with an offense that put up 51 more yards per game than any other team. The Bears national-title hopes fizzled with a lopsided loss to Oklahoma State on Nov. 23, a game that also put a dent in their BCS chances. Saturdays games left no doubt Baylor was headed to a BCS bowl for the first time. It started with Oklahomas win over Oklahoma State in the Bedlam game, a victory that cost the Cowboys the Big 12 title and essentially made the Texas-Baylor game the de facto conference championship. The Bears took care of it early, building a 17-3 lead on the way to a 30-10 win over the Longhorns to cap their first 11-win season and first conference title since winning the SWC in 1980. Waiting for the Bears in the desert will be Central Florida (11-1). The Knights had an 11-win season Associated PressTampa Bay running back Bobby Rainey eludes Buffalo cornerback Leodis McKelvin on an 80-yard touchdown run Sunday in the opening moments of the first quarter in Tampa. The Buccaneers improved to 4-9 with a 27-6 victory over the Bills. Turnaround continues for Bucs with 27-6 victory over Bills Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are making a case for saving coach Greg Schianos job with a strong second-half turnaround. The Bucs (4-9) beat the struggling Buffalo Bills 27-6 Sunday for their fourth win in five games following an 0-8 start that placed Schianos future in jeopardy. We just dont quit, and that all starts with our head coach. Thats how he is, defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. Hes very consistent with his effort, and nothing really changes with how he prepares and how he comes to work every day that makes you want to work harder for that guy. Bobby Rainey scored on an 80-yard run on the second play of the game, Mike Glennon threw two touchdowns, and the McCoy-led defense forced five turnovers and sacked EJ Manuel seven times. Our preparation is the same. Were just finishing games, McCoy said. Were making the plays that we werent making before. Raineys TD came 18 seconds into the game, the fastest score in Bucs history. The Bills have lost five of six, are assured of finishing without a winning record for the ninth straight year, and also are in danger of extending the NFLs longest current playoff drought to 14 consecutive seasons. Bills coach Doug Marrone held a team meeting after the game. I find it very difficult after that game to stand up here and defend a lot of things, Marrone said. I thought we played poorly. Actually, I shouldnt say I thought, I know we played poorly in all three phases, the coach added. We had penalties. We had turnovers. We had misreads. We had missed tackles. We had things go wrong for us that there have been times during the year where weve been making improvement on it. Glennon wasnt exactly sensational coming off a 27-6 loss at Carolina, going 9 of 25 for 90 yards. But he had TD throws of 5 yards to Tim Wright and 38 to Vincent Jackson, who had three receptions for 70 yards to go over 1,000 for the season for the second straight year. Rainey finished with 127 yards on 22 carries. Buffalo, meanwhile, took up where it left off in a 34-31 overtime loss to Atlanta. The Bills lost fumbles on their final two possessions of that game, Stevie Johnson in the final minute of the fourth quarter and Scott Chandler two plays into OT. This Sunday, they turned it over three times within a four-possession span of the second quarter, a stretch that might have been game-changing if Glennon hadnt thrown two interceptions. We just have to figure out whats going Zach Johnson defeats Tiger Woods in playoff Associated PressTHOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Zach Johnson put together the storybook finish at Sherwood on Sunday that for the longest time belonged to Tiger Woods. Johnson rallied from four shots behind with eight holes to play, holed out from a drop area for par on the last hole to force a playoff, and beat the No. 1 player in golf at the World Challenge when Woods missed a 5-foot par putt on the first extra hole. Pretty impressive what he did, Woods said. He got me. It was an extraordinary sendoff at Sherwood, which hosted the World Challenge for the 14th and final time before it moves to Florida next year. The big surprise was the winner in so many ways. I feel very fortunate, and a bit lucky, said Johnson, who moved into the top 10 in the world ranking for the first time in his career.

Florida State (13-0) vs. Auburn (12-1), 8:30 p.m. (ESPN) For Woods, it was only the fourth time in his career that he lost a lead of at least two shots going into the final round, the second time at Sherwood. Graeme McDowell overcame a four-shot deficit in 2010 and beat Woods in a playoff. This was far more dramatic. They were tied after Johnson hit his tee shot to 4 feet for birdie on the 17th hole. Playing from the left rough, Woods came up just short and watched his approach tumble down the elevated green and into the bunker. Johnson followed with his worst shot of the week, an 8-iron so weak that it came up well short and into the hazard. Johnson knew Woods had a difficult bunker shot, and if he figured if he could stick his wedge close from 58 yards away in the drop zone, a bogey might be enough to get into a playoff. The ball bounced three times and then spun back a few inches into the cup for an unlikely par and a 4-under 68. A little too dramatic for me, Johnson said. Woods hit a superb bunker shot to 2 feet and matched his par for a 70. They finished on 13-under 275. Woods was between clubs from the 18th fairway in the playoff and tried a smooth 7-iron that he lost enough to the right that it again found the bunker. He hit an exquisite sand shot, this one sliding 5 feet by the hole, and the par putt spun out of the left side. Johnson won $1 million and should go to No. 9 in the world. Matt Kuchar (67) and Bubba Watson (70) tied for third at 9-under 279.Jimenez wins 4th Hong Kong Open title in playoffHONG KONG Miguel Angel Jimenez successfully defended his Hong Kong Open title to extend his record as the oldest winner in European Tour history. The Spaniard won at 49 years, 337 days to break the record he set last year at Hong Kong Golf Club, holing an 18-foot birdie on the first hole of a playoff with Thailands Prom Meesawat and Wales Stuart Manley. Jimenez won the event for the fourth time to match the tournament victory record set by Taiwans Hsieh Yong Yo, the winner in 1963, and Jimenez also won in 2004 and 2007. He has 20 European Tour victories, a tour-record 13 since turning 40.Bjorn rallies with 65 to win at Sun CitySUN CITY, South Africa Thomas Bjorn rallied with a 7-under 65 to win the Nedbank Golf Challenge, beating third round-leader Jamie Donaldson and Sergio Garcia by two shots. Bjorn finished with a 20-under total after dropping a shot on the last hole at Gary Player Country Club, his only bogey of the day. But he had enough of a lead to claim his first Sun City title and a $1.25 million winners check. Garcia also shot 65 for a share of second at 18 under, while Donaldson closed with a 70 after entering the day with a three-shot lead.Lydia Ko wins first title as professionalTAIPEI, Taiwan Lydia Ko rallied to win her first title as a professional. The 16-year-old from New Zealand won the Swinging Skirts World Ladies Masters, closing with a 4-under 68 for a three-stroke victory over South Koreas So Yeon Ryu. Ko had an 11-under 205 total at Linkou Miramar and earned $150,000 in the event sanctioned by the Taiwan and Korean tours. Ryu finished with a 73. Top-ranked Inbee Park was third at 7 under after a 70. WILDContinued from Page B1 Auburn looks to keep SECs title streak going Associated PressATLANTA A week ago, the Southeastern Conference looked as though it had finally been vanquished. The rest of the nation breathed a sigh of relief, clearly relieved it wouldnt have to watch the haughty SEC celebrate another national championship. Not so fast. After a wild Saturday in this most unpredictable of seasons, the SEC was back in a familiar position playing for a BCS title, albeit not in its usual role of favorite. No. 2 Auburn (12-1) landed a spot in the championship game against top-ranked Florida State (13-0) when the BCS pairings were announced Sunday night, the fallout from Ohio State losing to Michigan State in the Big Ten championship game. The Seminoles were established as an early touchdown favorite for the Jan. 6 game at the Rose Bowl. Auburn doesnt sound the least bit intimidated. We feel were the best team in college football, star running back Tre Mason said. Weve got to continue to prove it. Ohio State had not lost a game in two years under coach Urban Meyer and needed one more victory to lock up a trip to Pasadena. Alas, in what has been a familiar theme since 2006, the SEC champion Tigers stepped up to claim the spot when the Buckeyes were upset by Michigan State 34-24. Auburn felt it deserved a shot at the title, no matter what Ohio State did. Theres no argument now, despite that collective groan from the SECs detractors, who have gotten downright tired of watching this conference win the final game year after year. Four SEC teams Alabama, Florida, LSU and Auburn have combined to win the last seven BCS championships, an unprecedented streak of dominance by a single league. In this part of the country, theres a sense of entitlement that came across even before the Tigers defeated Missouri 59-42 in an SEC shootout. These guys believe theyre the best conference in the country, and theyre not shy about stating it over and over again. Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs started lobbying for a BCS berth as soon as his team knocked off two-time defending champion Alabama, a game that seemingly eliminated the conferences best hope. The Tigers followed up with a video game-like performance in Atlanta, totaling a record 677 yards against Missouri including 545 on the ground. Its nine words, Jacobs said. Strength of schedule. Strength of schedule. Strength of schedule. Alabama was unbeaten and ranked No. 1 when it fell to Auburn. Missouri went into the SEC title game ranked No. 5 and sporting one of the nations topranked defenses, but had no answer for Auburns hurry-up spread offense led by Mason and quarterback Nick Marshall. Mason ran 304 yards and four touchdowns. During the regular season, Auburn beat three other teams Texas A&M, Mississippi and Georgia that were ranked at the time. Who else has knocked off two top-five teams in the last week? Jacobs asked. Who else has knocked off five Top 25 teams? Show me who they are, and Ill tell you they belong instead of us. Turns out, he didnt need to plead his case. Associated PressAuburn offensive linesman Avery Young carries the Southeastern Conference championship trophy Saturday in Atlanta after the Tigers defeated Missouri 59-42. Auburn will have a chance to extend the SECs streak of BCS titles to nine when it faces Florida State for the national title Jan. 6 in Pasadena, Calif. Among this seasons best teams, Stanford played the toughest schedule. And what about Alabama (11-1)? The two-time defending national champions only lost once in stunning fashion to Auburn. Were not a natural playoff sport, said Duke coach David Cutcliffe, who was the offensive coordinator at Tennessee when it won the first BCS championship game against Florida State in the 1999 Fiesta Bowl. I think we can make this work with four. And the reason I think well make this work is I think what were all going to find out is the arguments are going to get bigger. Were going to go from a few schools being angry to a lot of schools being angry, and maybe thats going to be a good thing. I just want to be in the argument. Florida State showed Cutcliffe how far away Duke is from being in the argument in a 45-7 victory Saturday night in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game. The Seminoles season has been defined by blowouts. Their average margin of victory is 42 points, and they could become just the third team in major college history to win all of its games by at least 14. The only drama this season in Tallahassee came off the field, when quarterback Jameis Winston was investigated for sexual assault. The state attorney said there was not enough evidence to charge the redshirt freshman with a crime two days before the Seminoles beat Duke. Winston is the runaway favorite to win the Heisman Trophy next Saturday. He would be the ninth Heisman winner to play in the BCS title game. Auburn completed its worst-tofirst run with a 59-42 victory in the Southeastern Conference championship game against Missouri. The Tigers didnt win a conference game last season. Under first-year coach Gus Malzahn, they have become an offensive juggernaut, leading the nation in rushing at 335 yards per game. Running back Tre Mason ran for 304 yards and three TDs against Mizzou to make a late Heisman push of his own. The Tigers have had some good fortune four games decided in the last 80 seconds, including improbable plays to beat Georgia and Alabama. But it usually takes a few breaks to get this far. Auburn will be looking for its second BCS title in four years, and the SECs eighth straight. Florida State is back in the championship game for the first time since 2000, looking to win a second BCS crown and third national title overall. BCSContinued from Page B1
SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE on with this team, said Manuel, the first-round draft pick out of Florida State who doubled his interception total for the season. I think we really have to find our identity, the rookie added, We have three games left, we really need to finish strong moving on into the offseason and things like that. After outgaining the Bills 169 yards to 38 while building a 14-3 lead in the first quarter, the Bucs were limited to 77 net yards the rest of the way to finish with 246. It didnt matter. With Manuel throwing two interceptions in the second quarter and two more in the third, the Bills never made a serious move to get back in the game, finishing with field goals of 40 and 46 yards by Dan Carpenter. Manuel hit C.J. Spiller on an 83-yard scoring play that was wiped out by a fourth-quarter holding penalty. Leodis McKelvin muffed a fair catch on a punt inside the Buffalo 20, and a roughing-the-passer penalty albeit a borderline call against Jairus Byrd helped set up Glennons TD pass to Wright that extended Tampa Bays lead to 24-3 at the half. Byrd also had the 22nd interception of his career, moving him into a tie for 10th on Buffalos all-time list. Stephon Gilmores pick six minutes later prevented Tampa Bay from turning McKelvins muff into points. Linebacker Lavonte David had two of Tampa Bays four interceptions. He also had a sack. Were playing really good football right now, and it all starts with our defense, with how many turnovers theyre forcing, Glennon said. With the way our defense was playing, we did what we needed to do as an offense, and they did the rest. Its nice to see the second half of the season were 4-1.

Islanders+210 at Vancouver-165Carolina+145 in 2010, but that led to the Liberty Bowl and not a BCS berth. Central Florida, which beat Ball State in the Beef O Bradys Bowl last season, got into the BCS this season by bouncing back from a loss to South Carolina with a school-record eight-game winning streak. The Knights had the BCS nod wrapped up when Louisville beat Cincinnati on Thursday and closed the regular season with a flourish, winning the American Athletic Conference title outright by holding off SMU 17-13 in an ice storm on Saturday. Facing Baylor and its nearly pointper-minute offense will likely be a daunting task for the Knights and possibly lead to a rare mismatch in the Fiesta Bowl. The Fiesta has been fortunate to have some marquee match-ups through the years, including the wild overtime win by Boise State over Oklahoma in 2007 and Oklahoma States overtime win over Stanford two years ago. Last years game featured a pair of teams that had been in the national-title hunt late in the regular season, but Oregon turned it into a rout by running past Kansas State. This years Fiesta Bowl could end up more like the 2011 game, which featured Oklahoma and Connecticut. The Sooners, predictably, won in a blowout and UConn had a hard time getting its fans to travel across the country for the game. The Fiesta Bowl really had no choice in this pairing. It was locked into taking the Big 12 champion and was last in the pecking order for at-large selections. When the Orange and Sugar Bowls passed on taking Central Florida, the Fiesta Bowl had no other choice since the AAC has an automatic berth into the BCS. FIESTAContinued from Page B1 Jesse Owens Olympic gold medal sells for $1.4MLAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. An Olympic gold medal won by Jesse Owens at the 1936 Berlin Games has sold for a record $1.4 million in an online auction. SCP Auctions said an anonymous bidder paid $1,466,574, the highest price for a piece of Olympic memorabilia. The online auction ended Sunday. Owens won gold in the 100and 200meters, 400 relay and long jump at the games attended by Adolph Hitler, who used the Olympics to showcase his ideas of Aryan supremacy. According to the auction house based in Laguna Niguel, Calif., the medal is unidentifiable to a specific event. It said Owens gave the medal to his friend, dancer and movie star Bill Bojangles Robinson, as thanks for helping Owens find work in entertainment after he returned from Berlin.Source: Toronto to trade Rudy Gay to SacramentoA person familiar with the deal says the Toronto Raptors have reached an agreement to send Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings in a multiplayer trade. The Raptors will receive Greivis Vasquez, Patrick Patterson, John Salmons and Chuck Hayes. The Kings also will acquire Aaron Gray and Quincy Acy. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday night because the trade is still pending NBA approval, said the deal is expected to become official Monday. Toronto was playing at the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night. Yahoo Sports first reported the trade. The move is the second major one for the Kings already this season as they begin rebuilding under new owner Vivek Ranadive. Sacramento sent Luc Mbah a Moute to Minnesota for Derrick Williams on Nov. 26.Kelly: Nix signs with agent, to enter NFL draftSOUTH BEND, Ind. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said nose guard Louis Nix III has signed with an agent and will forego his final year of eligibility to enter the NFL draft, where he is projected by many to be a first-round draft pick. Nixs season came to an end Nov. 21 when he underwent season-ending surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. The 6-foot-2, 349-pound senior also had been slowed by tendinitis in the same knee. Nix, who didnt play as a freshman, told media at the time he was undecided about whether he would return, saying his focus was on getting healthy.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Charles Clay caught two touchdowns, including a 12-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill with 2:53 remaining and the Miami Dolphins beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 34-28 on Sunday. Daniel Thomas ran for 105 yards and a score. His zig-zag 55-yard yard burst at snowy Heinz Field set up Clays game-winner. Tannehill completed 20 of 33 passes for 201 yards and three scores for the Dolphins (7-6). Miami blew a 10-point third-quarter lead but rallied to win for the third time in its last four games. Ben Roethlisberger passed for 349 yards and three scores but the Steelers (5-8) lost their second straight game to all but end any outside shot of making the postseason. Antonio Brown raced into the end zone after a series of laterals on the final play, but officials ruled he stepped out before scoring.Bengals 42, Colts 28CINCINNATI Andy Dalton threw for three touchdowns and ran for another, and the Cincinnati Bengals remained perfect at home and in control of the AFC North with a 42-28 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. The Bengals (9-4) improved to 6-0 at Paul Brown Stadium on a cold, windy day 28 degrees at kickoff with a wind chill of 19 and light flurries. Dalton gave his most consistent performance since October, throwing for three touchdowns that kept the Bengals ahead and finishing it off with an 8-yard run in the fourth quarter. Dalton was 24 of 35 for 275 yards without a sack or interception. The Colts (8-5) had another slow start in the cold, falling behind 21-0 before Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes to keep them close. Despite the loss, the Colts were in position to clinch the AFC South later Sunday if Tennessee lost at Denver.Packers 22, Falcons 21GREEN BAY, Wis. Matt Flynn threw for 258 yards and the Packers struggling defense forced a key fourthquarter turnover in a 22-21 win over the Atlanta Falcons to snap a five-game winless slide. Mike Neals sack forced Matt Ryan to fumble. Defensive lineman Johnny Jolly scooped up the loose ball and celebrated with a little belly dance at chilly Lambeau Field. Four plays later, Flynn found Andrew Quarless for a 2-yard touchdown pass for the go-ahead score with about 12 minutes left for the Packers (6-6-1). The score completed a comeback from an 11-point halftime deficit and whipped the fans swathed in parkas and knit caps into a frigid frenzy. It was 9 degrees when the game started, with a wind chill of minus-1. Matt Bryant missed a 52-yard field goal with 6:42 left for Atlanta (3-10).Eagles 34, Lions 20PHILADELPHIA LeSean McCoy rushed for a franchise-best 217 yards, including touchdowns of 57 and 40 yards, and the Philadelphia Eagles overcame two TD returns by Jeremy Ross to beat the Detroit Lions 34-20 in blizzard conditions. Ross returned a punt 58 yards for a score and ran a kickoff 98 yards. But McCoy ran 57 yards up the middle to tie it, and Nick Foles connected with Riley Cooper on the 2-point conversion. Foles sneaked in from the 1 and Chris Polk had a 38-yard TD run to cap a 28-point fourth quarter for the Eagles (8-5). The Eagles, looking to go worst-tofirst in the NFC East, won their fifth straight game and temporarily took sole possession of first place. Dallas (7-5) plays at Chicago tonight. The Lions (7-6) have a half-game lead over the Bears in the NFC North.Broncos 51, Titans 28DENVER Unbothered by the freezing weather, Matt Prater set an NFL record with a 64-yard field goal and Peyton Manning threw four more touchdown passes, lifting the Denver Broncos to a 51-28 victory over the Tennessee Titans. The temperature was 14 degrees when Prater kicked his record setter to close the first half and pull Denver within 21-20. Manning opened the third quarter by leading the Broncos on a pair of touchdown drives, and the Broncos (11-2) easily wrapped up a playoff spot. Denvers quarterback set a franchise record with 39 completions and finished with 397 yards. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 172 yards for the Titans (5-8), who went 73 yards in five plays to score on the games first drive and led 21-10 in the middle of the second quarter.49ers 19, Seahawks 17SAN FRANCISCO Phil Dawson kicked a 22-yard field goal with 26 seconds remaining and the San Francisco 49ers held off the Seattle Seahawks 19-17. Frank Gore broke a 51-yard gain with just more than four minutes left to set up the go-ahead 11-play, 76-yard drive as the 49ers (9-4) kept the playoff-bound Seahawks (11-2) from clinching the NFC West on San Franciscos home field. Dawsons fourth field goal of the day gave him 20 straight converted field goals, a franchise record topping Joe Nedneys 18 consecutive in 2006-07. Russell Wilson threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Luke Willson and Marshawn Lynch ran for an 11-yard score for Seattle, denied a franchisebest sixth road victory. The 49ers are unbeaten at home against the West since losing to the Seahawks on Oct. 26, 2008.Saints 31, Panthers 13NEW ORLEANS Drew Brees passed for 313 yards and four touchdowns and the New Orleans Saints beat Carolina 31-13 to regain sole possession of first place in the NFC South and snap the Panthers winning streak at eight games. The Panthers defense had not allowed more than two touchdowns in a game this season until the Saints scored three in the second quarter alone, when Brees completed 14 of 16 passes for 159 yards. The Saints also became the only team this season to score more than 24 points against Carolina, which entered the game No. 1 in scoring defense, allowing 13.1 points per game. Brees first two scoring strikes went to Marques Colston, who made nine catches for 125 yards. Jimmy Graham added two TD catches, his second making it 31-6 in the fourth quarter.

The Patriots came from behind to win 27-26. Ravens rally past Vikings on icy field; Patriots stun Browns in final 61 secondsBALTIMORE Joe Flacco threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to rookie Marlon Brown with 4 seconds left, capping a flurry of scores on an icy field and giving the Baltimore Ravens a 29-26 victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Following a first half played in a driving snowstorm, the teams combined for five touchdowns in the final 125 seconds. Browns catch concluded a fiveplay, 80-yard drive that took 41 seconds. It came after Matt Cassell threw a 79-yard touchdown pass to Cordarrelle Patterson with 45 seconds remaining. Just before that, Baltimores Jacoby Jones took a kickoff 77 yards for a score, which followed a 41-yard TD run by Toby Gerhart, who had replaced an injured Adrian Peterson. Baltimore (7-6) has its first threegame winning streak this season and the inside track for the second AFC wild card. Minnesota (3-9-1) lost Peterson in the second quarter with an ankle injury.Patriots 27, Browns 26FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes in the final 61 seconds, helping the New England Patriots rally for a 27-26 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

Brady completed a 10-yard pass to Danny Amendola. Then Leon McFadden was called for defensive pass interference in the end zone. That put the ball at the 1 where Brady connected with Amendola again.

New England lost tight end Rob Gronkowski to a leg injury in the third quarter.Chiefs 45, Redskins 10LANDOVER, Md. The Kansas City scored early and often, breaking a threegame losing streak with a 45-10 embarrassment of the Washington Redskins. The Chiefs improved to 10-3 by dominating an opponent that offered little resistance. They scored on their first four possessions, sacked Robert Griffin III five times and Kirk Cousins once, and returned a punt and a kickoff for touchdowns. The score was 17-0 after the first quarter and 38-10 at halftime. Quintin Demps immediately answered the lone Redskins touchdown with a 95-yard kickoff return, part of a stunning tally of 321 return yards by Kansas City in the first half alone. The Redskins fell to 3-10, increasing speculation that coach Mike Shanahan will be gone at the end of the season.Jets 37, Raiders 27EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score as the New York Jets set a season high for points and stopped a three-game skid with a 37-27 victory over the Oakland Raiders. Chris Ivory had a touchdown run, Nick Folk kicked three field goals and Antonio Allen blocked a punt and returned it for a score to help the Jets (6-7) in the AFC playoff hunt. Smith ended a miserable stretch that included getting benched last week by throwing his first touchdown toss since Week 7. The Jets also prevented the first four-game losing streak under coach Rex Ryan. Matt McGloin threw two touchdown passes and fullback Marcel Reece, starting because Oakland was down three running backs, had a 63-yard TD run for the Raiders (4-9). Oakland has lost three straight overall, and 13 consecutive in the Eastern time zone.Chargers 37, Giants 14SAN DIEGO Philip Rivers found rookie Keenan Allen for two of his three touchdown passes, and the San Diego Chargers beat Eli Manning and the New York Giants 37-14 to keep alive their long-shot playoff hopes. Manning dropped to 0-3 against San Diego since 2004, when the Chargers took him with the No. 1 overall draft pick and then sent him to the Giants for Rivers and a handful of draft picks. The Giants (5-8) were pushed closer to elimination from the playoff picture. Manning was picked off twice, the first time when Donald Butler came up with a deflected pass midway through the first quarter. Three plays later, Allen caught a 43-yard pass and lunged for the pylon for the score. Allen had three catches to push his season total to 61, breaking LaDainian Tomlinsons team rookie record of 59 in 2001.Cardinals 30, Rams 10GLENDALE, Ariz. So much for Carson Palmers sore right elbow. The Arizona quarterback completed 27 of 32 passes, 12 of them to Larry Fitzgerald, and the Cardinals ended an eight-game losing streak against NFC West foes by beating the St. Louis Rams 30-10. Palmer, questionable for the game after being limited in practice last week, threw for 269 yards and a touchdown as the Cardinals (8-5) won for the fifth time in six games. Arizonas Karlos Dansby returned an interception 23 yards for a touchdown and John Abraham tackled Kellen Clemens for a safety. Tavon Austins 56-yard run set up the only touchdown for the Rams (5-8), a 1-yard run by Zac Stacy. Austin injured his left ankle on the play and didnt return. The Cardinals lost rookie safety Tyrann Mathieu in the third quarter with a left knee injury.
B6MONDAY, DECEMBER9, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.As regular readers know, I do a lot of bridge teaching. In the summer, I travel around the country running bridge camps without tents. They usually last three days, but I did one for only two days in Birmingham, Ala., in October. In the winter, I teach in Florida and my car gets almost as good a workout as I do. The first lesson I taught this season in Florida, early last month, featured deals in which declarer had to handle the trump suit with care. This week, lets look at six of them. First, how should South try to make four spades after West takes the first three tricks with his high clubs, then shifts to a heart? In the auction, South might rebid three notrump, which works well here as long as North takes a spade finesse. And yes, South might initially respond two spades, a strong jump shift showing 13-16 highcard points and either an excellent one-suiter or a good two-suiter with length in both responders suit and openers suit. South, who needs the rest of the tricks, must draw trumps without loss. With eight cards missing only the queen, declarer should finesse, not play for the drop eight ever. But should he finesse immediately, or only after first cashing the ace?

I have little memory of my childhood up until age 13. But I do know that when my friends played with their Barbie dolls, they had her driving around, going on dates and dressing up pretty. I pretended she was having sex with Ken. Other kids played house, but I pretended to be the dad and would get on top of my younger sister and rub against her. When I was 14, I made out with my 8-year-old stepcousin until his mother caught me, and for years after, he refused to talk to me. When I was 16, I kissed my best friends 10-year-old brother. I dont remember anything specifically. I only remember having a bad dream once that my dad molested me, and for years afterward, I didnt want to be near him. Our relationship still feels kind of strained. I dont know what to think anymore. What should I do? Bewildered and Worried Dear Bewildered: We would not presume to tell you what happened to you as a child, if anything actually did, or whether it involved your father. We suggest you seek therapy, although we do not recommend those who claim to specialize in recovered memories of abuse. This type of therapy is not reliable. Ask your doctor to refer you. Dear Annie: We have a family member who wishes for us not to contact him anymore. Both of his parents are deceased. What do we do? Upset Relatives Dear Upset: You must respect his wishes, even though it seems cruel. (We assume this family member is not under any type of duress from a partner who is trying to isolate him.) We would inform this relative that you will cease contact, as per his wishes. But add that you still care about him, and should he wish to resume contact, it always will be welcome. Dear Annie: Little Sister in Need told you about her abusive older brother, and you told her to stop taking it personally? She wasnt talking about disagreements. She cited his being verbally, psychologically and at times physically abusive. You should have told her that whats going on is abuse and, if he gets physical, constitutes domestic violence. She needs to talk to a domestic violence counselor and be alert for signs that hes also abusing his wife and child. Odds are that he is. Abusers rarely limit themselves to just one victim. Judy Dear Judy: Many readers agree with you, but we did not get the impression that the current abuse is physical. Sibling relationships are complicated, and there is often physical fighting and hitting when siblings are younger. While we dont condone such behavior, we also know that the physical side usually stops when the siblings reach adulthood. It does not necessarily carry over to his wife and child, nor does it seem so from her letter, although she certainly can investigate. The fact that her brother continues to harangue her verbally indicates that he has anger and control issues. He lashes out at his sister because this is the dynamic they have had for 20 years. If speaking to a therapist would be helpful for her, we agree that this is an excellent idea. However, it also would help if she changed her response to her brother, not only because it would force him to change how he speaks to her, but also because it could improve her perception of her own strength in his presence. He is intimidating her, and she needs to stand up to him in a way that empowers her without exacerbating the situation.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
