The homemade Festivus pole will be erected most likely on Wednesday in the same first-floor rotunda as a nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus Christ that was put up last week by the Florida Prayer Network. I still chuckle, I literally cant believe there will be a pile of Pabst Blue Ribbon cans in the state rotunda, said Chaz Stevens, a Deerfield Beach resident who applied to the state Department of Management Services to put the Festivus pole on display. Stevens, who operates a blog that focuses on South Florida politics, said the intent of the Festivus pole is to make a political statement on the need for the separation of church and state. He compared the Festivus pole to the nativity scene as my ridiculous statement versus what I consider, as an atheist, as their ridiculous statement. Festivus is a holiday created for the TV sitcom Seinfeld as a non-commercial festival for the rest of us in the Christmas and yearend holiday season. Festivus, celebrated Dec. 23, comes with a ceremonial post-dinner airing of the grievances in which participants describe how they have been disappointed by others in the past year and engage in feats of strength. Festivus purists may favor a more-simple unadorned aluminum pole, but Stevens said the use of beer cans he wouldnt say who emptied the cans is in line with the irreverent spirit of those who celebrate the holiday. Pam Olsen, president of the Florida Prayer Network, said last week that such displays only shine more light on her groups message that she said isnt to be viewed as a state sponsorship of religion. Its their right, they have a right to exercise freedom of speech, thats what America is about, Olsen said. It doesnt faze me, it doesnt faze the God I serve. Big tech pressures Obama Associated PressWASHINGTON Silicon Valley is escalating pressure on President Barack Obama to curb the U.S. government surveillance programs that vacuum personal information off the Internet and threaten the technology industrys financial livelihood.

Its about practice and teamwork its about being a family. For the 21 girls on the Inverness Storm Midget cheerleading squad, thats the key to success and to reaching the pinnacle: the Pop Warner National Cheer & Dance Championships. On Friday, the squad of girls, ranging in age from 12 to 15, will be competing with squads from around the nation for the championship title. The event is at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort. This is the big time. You have to work for it, said 15-yearold Lily Thompson, an eight-year cheerleading veteran. You have to have coordination; we do stunts and jumps and tumble. You have to remember to keep good posture and have good facial expression you have to smile. Theres a lot thats involved. The girls have been practicing several times a week for months, and many of them also participate in other sports and afterschool activities. Plus, theres school and homework, so these girls are committed. For another veteran on the team, Taila Garvey, also 15, this is her second championship.

If you were a stray cat, you had a handmade shelter and a bowl of food in her yard. If you were a teenager who needed an extra dose of a mothers love, she had enough to go around. I have to do this, she would say. She had a giving heart; she gave to everything and everyone all the time, said John Simonetti, her husband of 27 years. After a brief illness, Mary Simonetti died Dec. 1. She was 48. Debbie Sosnicki, parish secretary at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Inverness, called Mary a quiet unassuming woman with a heart as big as the world. Each year we sponsor a week of Vacation Bible School for our parish children. Mary was a very creative woman, who also loved to bake, Sosnicki said. Her children always attended VBS and her youngest daughter Alicias birthday fell right around that time. So Mary would bake a birthday cake to share with all the children. My grandson ... declined the cake, because he only likes cupcakes. Well, the next year, and every year after, she continued to bring the birthday cake and cupcakes for my grandson. That was Mary. John Simonetti smiled as he recalled first meeting her. He was assistant manager for Scottys in Spring Hill. I hired her and she hated me, he said. She thought I was arrogant. After about a year we started dating and since then she made me into a better person. He described her as a quiet, but strong leader. She loved organization and order, loved volunteering. See MARY/ Page A2 City to look at overcrowding at Three Sisters MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The city council on Monday accepted a working groups report with recommendations to address overcrowding with boaters, swimmers and kayaks at Three Sisters Springs. Council members thanked members of the group, an offshoot of the Waterfronts Advisory Board, which convened to see what role the city could have in finding solutions to what officials say has become a major problem. Committee chairwoman Janet Mulligan said the recommendations do not include limiting the number of boaters at the entrance to Three Sisters, but rather, bring some sanity to the chaos. Council members supported the recommendations, which include: Banning open alcohol containers in canals east of the Kings Bay bridge. City Manager Andy Houston, however, said the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission is questioning whether the city has the authority to See SPRINGS/ Page A9 Mary Simonettidied Dec. 1.

become integral cogs in the economy. Their prosperity also provides them with the cash to pay for lobbyists and fund campaign contributions that sway public policy. Mondays public relations offensive is a byproduct of documents leaked over the past six months by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. The records reveal that the NSA has been obtaining emails and other personal data from major tech companies under secret court orders for the past five years and scooping up other data through unauthorized hacking into data centers. Silicon Valley has been fighting back in the courts and in Congress as they seek reforms that would allow them to disclose more information about secret court orders. Several of the companies are also introducing more encryption technology to shield their users data from government spies and other prying eyes. Mondays letter and the new anti-snooping website represent the technology industrys latest salvo in an attempt to counter any perception that they voluntarily give the government access to users email and other sensitive information. Although the campaign is ostensibly directed at governments around the world, the U.S. is clearly the main target. The balance in many countries has tipped too far in favor of the state and away from the rights of the individual rights that are enshrined in our Constitution, the letter said. This undermines the freedoms we all cherish. Its time for a change. Civil liberties arent the only thing at stake. One of the reasons the technology companies have become a rich vein for crime-fighting authorities is that they routinely store vast amounts of personal data as part of their efforts to tailor services and target advertising. By analyzing search requests, Web-surfing habits, social networking posts and even the content of emails, the companies are able to determine, for instance, the type of digital ads to show individual users. The NSA revelations have raised fears that people might shy away from some Internet services or share less information about themselves. Such a shift would make it more difficult for companies to increase their ad revenue and, ultimately, boost their stock prices. In a statement, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer said the NSA disclosures had shaken the trust of our users. Google CEO Larry Page and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, two of the richest people in the world, also chimed with statements urging the U.S. to adopt reforms to protect personal information. U.S. intelligence officials have staunchly defended the electronic espionage, contending the NSAs tactics have helped disrupt terror attacks. Officials also insist that the agency takes care not to look at the content of conversations or messages by U.S. citizens. Obama has asked a panel of hand-picked advisers to report on the spying issue this month and recently said hell propose the NSA use some self-restraint in handling data. He maintains, however, that the NSA isnt interested in reading peoples emails and text messages. Decorating and finding a bargain were two of Marys biggest passions, and if she could find a bargain on decorations, then she was ecstatic. The Simonetti garage is filled with boxes of wedding and party supplies just in case. She created a fabulous and thrifty wedding for her oldest daughter, Lindsay Bauer. She helped with dozens of weddings and jubilees at church, Simonetti said. She loved to decorate, but mainly she loved to see people happy, and weddings are happy times. He continued, People say their spouse is their better half; she was my better 99 percent that much of me is missing right now. Daughter Lindsay called her mom the most important woman in my life. She loved being a mom to us kids her own, adopted kids and inlawed. She loved her best friend and husband of 27 years, our amazing dad. She loved her mom, brothers and sisters through and through, and her inlaws. She loved her animals all of them, she said. She loved her church family and friends and volunteering ... and she loved Caleb, her grandbaby, her punkin, as she called him. ... She just loved life and everyone in it. The world lost an inspiring, beautiful, fun, caring, loving, smart, funny, sarcastic, bull-headed, kind, helpful, happy and all-around wonderful woman. But I know heaven gained all that, so she can shine even brighter there. Marys sister, Sheryl McCullough, said the family called her Sue and that she was a typical older sister. She was always trying to mother me and my younger sister ever since we were little and up through present day, she said.She always felt that she needed to be there not only to help but to be certain things/projects came out the best possible.There wasnt a project that Ive been involved in personally or professionally in the last eight years that she wasnt right there to help. Mary Simonetti loved flowers and had a knack for floral arrangements. She loved to sew and was a great cook. Her specialty was creamed ham over a pile of mashed potatoes. She loved to bake and made delicious banana bread. She loved watching NCIS, and referred to actor Mark Harmon as her boyfriend, and loved giving people a Gibbs slap across the back of their heads. Mary remembered peoples names and phone numbers because she cared about them. She loved playing peek-a-boo with 21-month-old grandson Caleb. A woman of faith, she believed in dressing up for church, that it was important because she was going to Gods house. She spent hours on Facebook, connecting with friends. She kept in touch with people. She talked a lot. She was empathetic, generous. She was a planner and was always prepared. If the weather report said it might be cold out, shed insist, Take your coat. Wheres your coat? Youre going to need your coat. She always said, What would you do without me? Now its, what are we going to do without her? We never thought about it because she was always there, John Simonetti said. One week after Mary Simonettis death, Debbie Sosnicki sang the hymn Hail Mary; Gentle Woman during Mass at Our Lady of Fatima church. She said, Words to that hymn describe ... Mary (Simonetti) to a T: Gentle Woman, quiet light. Morning Star so strong and bright. Gentle Mother, peaceful dove, teach us wisdom, teach us love. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy in 2008. That was my very first year on the squad and I did not know what to do at all, she said. I was a lot younger then, too. Now I have experience so Im not as nervous this time. Im just really anxious to go again. Taila said one of the main reasons the squad has made it this far is how they work together, despite their age range. Their age range may even be an asset, with the older girls caring about the younger ones as they would a younger sister and the younger ones looking up to their big sisters on the team. Were definitely a family, and we work well together. We mesh really well, Taila said. She added that, as a squad, they will be one of the youngest Midget groups at the championship. We might be going up against full teams of 15year-olds, she said. Also, well be competing against teams from other states, and their styles could be way different from our style, so theres a big diversity. Their 2-minute, 30-second routine, a salsathemed number, consists of dancing, cheering, two pyramids, jumps and tumbling and smiling. The biggest thing, when we go out there, we want them to remember us, said head coach Marrie Massa. Size-wise, when we go to competitions, were the smallest and definitely the youngest team, and we look really small. But our girls have a lot of energy and really enjoy what theyre doing, and I think thats what makes a difference. Massa said the team is exceptionally dedicated. Most of them have been cheering for at least five years, many of them on the same team. So, theyre very experienced, but they also really want to keep learning and improving; they really want to better themselves as athletes, she said. They have great attitudes. They say that this year has been their most fun year. They say, Instead of a team, were a family.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy, DECEMBER10, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/NATION 000GUOD NEW OFFICE LOCATION Announces the NEW OFFICE LOCATION NEW OFFICE LOCATION of his new practice Call 228-4975 Comprehensive foot and ankle care for the entire family.

STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Around theCOUNTY CHRISVANORMER Staff writerMaintaining county roads and improving some of them with upgrade projects will come under scrutiny Thursday when a panel meets to review the states five-year plan for the county. Citrus County Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) will look at the projects outlined in the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Five-Year Tentative Work Program for Citrus County that will be in effect from July 1, 2014, until June 30, 2019. The program, now in draft form, covers the next five years of preliminary engineering, right-of-way acquisition, construction and public transportation projects in the county. The TPO will be asked to approve the program. Projects within the program include widening parts of U.S. 19, U.S. 41 and about three miles of County Road 491, resurfacing many roads throughout the county, a rail safety project at West Carver Road, Dunnellon, improvements for the county transit service and several runway, pavement and hangar improvements at Inverness Airport and Crystal River Airport. The tentative program is attached to the online agenda. A public hearing for the tentative work program will be conducted as a webinar a live presentation delivered over the Internet from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 16. Registration is required before joining the webinar. To register, visit https:// register/547245394. Residents who do not have access to the Internet can take part through remote viewing that will be made available at that time and date at the Inverness Government Building, 212 W. Main St., Inverness. FDOT will receive verbal and written comments at the site.

Also on the TPOs Thursday meeting agenda will be Floridas Turnpike Enterprise Tentative Five-Year Work Program. Its project for Citrus County will be voluntary right-of-way acquisition for Suncoast Parkway 2, budgeting $18.4 million in spending during the five-year period. The TPO board also will be asked to sign the final Citrus County Federal 2010 Urban Boundaries and Federal Functional Classification maps. The Federal Highway Administration requires the review and update of urban boundaries and roadway functional classification following the decennial census. The draft 2010 urban boundary maps and roadway functional classifications were prepared in coordination with the FDOT and local planning partners. The federal agency has reviewed and approved the urban boundaries and functional classification designations and FDOT District 7 has prepared the final maps for the TPO chairmans signature. FDOT staff will provide a brief overview of the process and changes to the previous boundaries and classifications.

Planners mull new agenda for road projects PATFAHERTY Staff writerContinuing a longstanding holiday tradition, employees from the Crystal River Energy Complex collected and delivered toys for the Citrus County Family Resource Center. Its an activity going back more than 20 years. It started when the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers first got involved with the centers Christmas effort. According to Duke Energy spokeswoman Heather Danenhower, the last load for 185 children was delivered to the center Friday. We do fundraising for this all year, explained Barbara Martinuzzi, who works at the energy complex. The big event is a golf tournament sponsored by the IBEW called Hitting Balls for Santa Claus. She said they also have drawings and other fundraisers and start shopping at the beginning of November. They usually plan on spending $100 to $125 per child. Using gift cards and reward points, they work with the Crystal River Kmart to get the most for their money. She said even as they were loading up on Friday, five more workers came forward to sponsor children on their own. Once the unwrapped toys are delivered, they are matched up with submitted Christmas lists, wrapped and sorted for participating families. Family Resource Center director Ginger West said they have about 100 children needing sponsors. We anticipate 2,000 children, she said. About what we expected, it will be between 1,900 and 2,100. People may think it is the same 2,000 children, she said, but over the last three years only about 200 of the same children have remained on the list. For the others, hopefully their families have gotten into better situations. But one thing the center has found this year is more children asking for blankets. It has also gotten a lot of requests for socks, shoes and underwear. When parents and children share a pair of shoes, thats more important than a toy, she said. And you dont expect a 5-year-old to ask for a shirt or sneakers. In addition to trying to meet those needs, West said they also try and make sure the children get toys as well. Its really a community project, said West. People from every corner of the county are involved in it. Its the best part of my Christmas, said Martinuzzi.

He said this years event is sponsored by Kenworth of Central Florida. At its Monday morning meeting, the alliance welcomed Sarah Ellis, new Citrus County Extension Service agent for family and consumer affairs. Ellis has a background in nutrition and previously worked with the Area Agency on Aging. A discussion followed on the role of agriculture in promoting healthy nutrition. We need to talk about it, said DuWayne Sipper, executive director of The Path of Citrus County, citing problems linked to poor nutrition Its an educational fight to teach people basic nutrition. Muriel Turner, interim extension director, said Ellis will be going out to nutrition sites and making presentations. They are still working on filling the extension director position. Ardath Pendergast of the Economic Development Council reported the strategic plan is complete and will be presented Jan. 9. The alliance will be at the Agritunity event Jan. 24 and 25 in Sumter County. The group is also signing up volunteers for its booth at the Citrus County Fair in March.

Associated PressLONDON Ida Pollock once said she was born to write. And so she did millions of words during more than seven decades, spinning tales of impecunious young women romanced by handsome older men in farflung locations. The centenarian author of more than 120 books, believed to be the worlds oldest romantic novelist, has died at the age of 105. Daughter Rosemary Pollock also a romance novelist said the writer died Dec. 3 at a nursing home near her house in Lanreath, southwest England. Born in London in 1908 and raised by a single mother, Pollock had her first stories published while she was in her teens, and went on to write scores of books under almost a dozen pseudonyms. Her output included some 70 bodicerippers for romance publisher Mills & Boon, the British arm of Harlequin Enterprises. Pollocks daughter said writing was her mothers passion, but romance was not her original genre. I think she would have liked to be a thriller writer, Rosemary Pollock said. She enjoyed reading thrillers, more than romantic fiction. She told me about one or two rather grim stories she wrote when she was very young one was about a Japanese woman in a garden who strangled her lover with her hair. (But) my grandmother was always saying, Why dont you write something pretty? Thats the way to get on. Then she thought, love stories Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen she could go with that. After an adventurous early life that included a solo trip to Morocco while still a teenager and work in London during the Blitz, Pollock took up writing intensely to support her family after her husband went bankrupt in 1950. And then she was happy, her daughter said. She was a lovely, charming mother but she was in a dream until she got back to her writing and then she was herself. Ida Pollock said she could finish a book in six weeks and produced 40 in one five-year period.

Tim Marcum, 69Legendary Arena Football League and Tampa Bay Storm head coach Tim Marcum passed away peacefully today at Hospice of Citrus County in Lecanto, Fla., at the age of 69 after battling a terminal illness. He was surrounded by his loving family at the time of passing while listening to the tunes of Elvis Presley. The ole ball coach, as he referred to himself, was born in Roscoe, Texas, and honed his gridiron skills as a youth on the fields of West Texas prior to becoming a record-setting quarterback at McMurry University under Grant Teaff. After coaching 10 years in Texas high schools, he transitioned into the post-graduate realm at Ranger College and led the school to the Junior College National Championship in 1979 with an 11-0 record. He is best known for his success in the Arena Football League, where he spent 21 seasons as the dean of coaching. No coach in AFL history has more wins (211), games coached (345) or championships won (seven). A two-time recipient of the AFL Coach of the Year (1987 and 1998), he advanced to the postseason in 19 of his 21 seasons and his teams participated in the championship game a record 11 times while leading three different teams to a championship. Marcum was always proud of his players and coached 12 of the AFLs 45 players in the Leagues Hall of Fame. The current coaching ranks of the AFL are littered with people who Marcum either coached or hired as an assistant. The AFL sideline is not the only one that he prowled. Aside from Ranger, he coached in the college ranks at Rice University and the University of Florida. In the professional ranks, he coached the San Antonio Gunslingers in the United States Football League, the New York/New Jersey Knights of the World League of American Football and the Atlanta Falcons in the National Football League. In 2004, the American Football Coaches Association presented Tim with the Outstanding Achievement Award. Born on Feb. 10, 1944, Tim was preceded in death by his parents, D.V. Marcum and Mary Marcum. He is survived by his wife, Lynn Marcum; her two daughters, Kendra and Carly Hurrell; his daughters, Michelle Marcum and Mitzi Brenner and her husband Marty Brenner; his brother, Jim Marcum and his wife Judy; his sister, Sandy Peters and her husband Leonard Pete Peters; grandchildren, Austin Anderson, Bryce and Max Brenner; many beloved nieces and nephews; and the smartest canine companion, Maggie Marcum. The family would like to send along a special thanks to Hospice of Citrus County of the Nature Coast for the wonderful care in his final days. A private gathering will be held by the family with a celebration of Tims life to take place on Tuesday, Jan. 14, in Tampa. Additional details can be found shortly at www., where friends and family can also leave a note of fond and cherished memories. A scholarship at McMurry University will be established in Tims name, the family asks that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to the scholarship.

Evangeline Bradley Johnny Burke Tim Marcum Death ELSEWHERE From wire reports Rising riches: 1 in 5 in US reaches affluence Associated PressWASHINGTON Fully 20 percent of U.S. adults become rich for parts of their lives, wielding extensive influence over Americas economy and politics, according to new survey data. These new rich, made up largely of older professionals, working married couples and more educated singles, are becoming politically influential, and economists say their capacity to spend is key to the U.S. economic recovery. But their rise is also a sign of the nations continuing economic polarization. They extend well beyond the wealthiest 1 percent, a traditional group of super-rich millionaires and billionaires with longheld family assets. The new rich have household income of $250,000 or more at some point during their working lives, putting them if sometimes temporarily in the top 2 percent of earners. The new survey data on the affluent are being published in an upcoming book, and an analysis by The AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research provided additional information on the views of the group. In a country where poverty is at a record high, todays new rich are notable for their sense of economic fragility. They rely on income from their work to maintain their social position and pay for things such as private tutoring for their children. That makes them much more fiscally conservative than other Americans, polling suggests, and less likely to support public programs, such as food stamps or early public education, to help the disadvantaged. Last week, President Barack Obama asserted that growing inequality is the defining challenge of our time, signaling that it will be a major theme for Democrats in next years elections. In this country, you dont get anywhere without working hard, said James Lott, 28, a pharmacist in Renton, Wash., who adds to his six-figure salary by day-trading stocks. The son of Nigerian immigrants, Lott said he was able to get ahead by earning an advanced pharmacy degree. He makes nearly $200,000 a year. After growing up on food stamps, Lott now splurges occasionally on nicer restaurants, Hugo Boss shoes and extended vacations to New Orleans, Atlanta and parts of Latin America. He believes government should play a role in helping the disadvantaged. But he says the poor should be encouraged to support themselves, explaining that his single mother rose out of hardship by starting a day-care business in their home.

It's not just the wealthiest 1 percent: Fully 20 percent of U.S. adults become rich for parts of their lives, wielding outsized influence on America's economy and politics.

The Polk County Sheriffs Office said Victor Bryie of Winter Haven and Shaun Phillips of the United Kingdom jumped Sunday near the Lake Wales Municipal Airport. According to the The Ledger Phillips told deputies his ankle got caught in Bryies parachute lines and both skydivers lines started to tangle.

Bryie was airlifted to a hospital. The sheriffs office said Monday that Bryie remained hospitalized in serious but stable condition.LongwoodSecond bear euthanized after womans mauling Another bear has been trapped and euthanized in a Florida neighborhood where a woman walking her dogs was mauled. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials said the 200-pound male bear was caught Sunday and closely fits the description of the bear that injured Susan Chalfant in Longwood, about 15 miles north of Orlando, on Dec. 2. Wildlife officials said Chalfant suffered facial injuries and was hospitalized. The commissions executive director said that because the attack resulted in serious injuries, wildlife officials decided to euthanize the bear. A 200-pound female bear was trapped and euthanized Thursday. A bear cub also was trapped in the same area, but it was taken to a rehabilitation center in Crystal River because officials determined that it was not involved in the attack.Around the STATE From staff and wire reports Top aide to governor admits to lying about college degree Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A top aide to Florida Gov. Rick Scott is admitting that he once misled people about having a college degree. Adam Hollingsworth, Scotts chief of staff, issued a statement to theMiami Herald and Tampa Bay Times on Friday in which he acknowledged that he did not receive a degree from the University of Alabama until 2009. He acknowledged that for years before that he had said he was a graduate. I am not proud of this and I deeply apologize for this misrepresentation, Hollingsworth said. I have learned from this failure in judgment and know that, over the last several years, my life and character have and will continue to grow from this. Hollingsworth, who worked on Scotts transition team right after he was elected in 2010, was hired by Scott in the summer of 2012. He had once worked as chief of staff for former Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton and at the time of his hiring was leading the right-of-way division for Flagler Development Group, a commercial real estate company. Hollingsworth, 45, was brought in after thenchief of staff Steve MacNamara abruptly resigned following a series of news stories detailing his job performance and handling of contracts. The Heraldand theTimesreported that when Hollingsworth worked for CSX Corp., the company twice put out news releases saying he had a degree in communications. The newspapers reported that on Hollingsworths application with the city of Jacksonville in 2004 and on a previous application in 1994, Hollingsworth answered truthfully that he attended the University of Alabama but had not received a college degree. It used to be illegal in the state of Florida for someone to falsely claim that they had an academic degree. Scott in 2011 signed a measure that repealed the law. A federal court back in 1995 had previously declared the law unconstitutional as a First Amendment violation. Scott in a statement on Friday said that he had confidence in Hollingsworth as his chief of staff. I know him to be a man of tremendous integrity and character, Scott said. I know he regrets this and has learned from it. Adam HollingsworthGov. Scotts chief of staff. do that. City Attorney George Angeliadis will discuss the issue with state officials. Placing a mooring field in the canal near the Three Sisters entrance. Mulligan said the idea is to free the canals middle to boats coming and going. Councilman Ken Brown wondered about the size of the mooring field, whether there would be a maximum length of stay for boaters, and what would happen to other boaters if the mooring field were full. Setting aside an area west of the Three Sisters Springs entrance for a manatee sanctuary in the winter and swimming area in the summer. The council said it would set a workshop in February to discuss the recommendations in detail. In other business Monday, the council: Approved on first reading extending the life of the community redevelopment district for 30 years. The district is now scheduled to expire in 2018. City Manager Andy Houston said in a report that the district could raise $20.5 million over the life of the extension through a portion of property taxes collected in the district. The county has supported the districts extension. Councilman Mike Gudis said the city could bond the projected revenue to pay for projects, such as Riverwalk. The final public hearing is Jan. 13. Postponed until January, a vote on taking ownership from the county Citrus Avenue between U.S. 19 and Turkey Oak Boulevard.

The council has a 12:30 p.m. Dec. 18 workshop at the Coastal Region Library to discuss priorities. Agreed to repaint the manatee statue in front of city hall to a natural color. Houston discovered in city council meeting minutes from 2004 that the red, white and blue manatee should be repainted, but the work was never done. Houston said he didnt want to repaint the manatee without council knowledge becausethe statue with its current appearance has become somewhat iconic in the eyes of some in the community. SPRINGSContinued from Page A1 Associated PressSNIPE POINT Necropsies performed on the 11 pilot whales found dead in the Florida Keys show that they were emaciated and suffering from malnutrition, federal officials said Monday. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration stranding coordinator Blair Mase said the whales empty bellies could be a result of disease or of being out of the deep, cooler waters that form their natural habitat. Really we dont know how long theyve been in the area and we dont have any clues of why they got here in the first place, she said in a conference call with the media. It could be weeks to months before the results of the necropsies come in, she said, and there is a possibility there could be more whales in the area. A fisherman found the 11 whales lying near each other Sunday in Snipe Point, on an island chain near Key West. The young ones, especially, were emaciated, said Julia Zaias, a veterinarian with the Marine Animal Rescue Society. Zaias spoke with The Associated Press from a center in Key West where researchers handled samples on Monday. Two of the female whales were pregnant. The samples would help researchers discover any illnesses or anything else that could help them understand why the whales had beached. Feds: 11 dead whales suffered from malnutrition




Oil falls slightly; natural gas soars on weatherNEW YORK The price of oil fell slightly Monday, the first decline in seven trading sessions. Benchmark U.S. crude for January delivery slipped 31 cents to $97.34 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Oil had gained $5.35 a barrel, or 5.8 percent, over the previous six trading days. Meanwhile, natural gas rose above $4.20 for the first time since May 28, on the likelihood that homeowners turned up the heat to try to shake off the effects of two wintry storms that plowed across the country. Forecasts are for colder than normal temperatures in the Midwest this week. Natural gas futures rose 12 cents, or 2.9 percent, to $4.23 per $1,000 cubic feet. U.S. drivers who braved the rough conditions in many areas paid an average of $3.26 a gallon for gasoline. Thats down 9 cents from this time a year ago. Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils, dropped $2.22 at $109.39 a barrel on the ICE Futures exchange in London.Michigan bill designed to protect late-night clerksNORTON SHORES, Mich. A Michigan legislator has announced a bill to require gas stations and convenience stores that stay open between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. to have two employees working or to install security cameras. The bill unveiled Monday in western Michigan comes after the April disappearance of a 26-year-old woman from her job at a Norton Shores gas station. Jessica Heeringas mother and law enforcement attended the news conference. Heeringa disappeared before she was set to close the station. Police said there was no indication of a robbery. Democratic Rep. Collene LaMonte of Montague detailed her bill that could be called Jessicas Law. The gas station had no security cameras, leaving authorities without potential clues.Europeans trying to finish deal on bad banksBRUSSELS European finance ministers are taking another crack at an issue thats bedeviled them: how to handle failing banks at an EU level. At a meeting in Brussels, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said Monday that hes optimistic a deal on creating a new European Union agency to deal with bad banks can be reached this month. There is a lot of work to do, he said. I dont know if we will do it in one meeting or if we will need an additional meeting. EU leaders are under pressure to arrive at a compromise on the banking agency by the end of the year so it can be enacted by the current European Parliament. The issue is expected to dominate Tuesdays meeting of finance ministers from all 28 EU member countries. On Monday, ministers from the 17 nations using the euro currency met. One sticking point preventing agreement has been Germanys opposition to letting the EUs executive arm be the decision maker on whether to close or restructure a bank. Schaeuble didnt say Monday if Germany is ready to drop its opposition, but said there are solutions to the issue. Another point of contention has been who should pay if a troubled bank needs taxpayer funds so that its failure does not hurt the overall economy. First in line to take losses should be bank shareholders, and a troubled bank could also be sold to new owners. If more money is needed, the proposed Europe-wide agency would have a rescue fund financed through a levy on banks. The idea is to have the fund at the EU level, and spread bailout costs throughout European banks so that the failure of one financial institution doesnt wipe out a countrys finances and also so banks, and not taxpayers, pay the bill. Germany has said such an arrangement would require a change in the basic EU treaty, which could take years. It proposes instead a network of national financial safety nets until the treaty can be amended.Airbus parent EADS to cut 5,800 jobs in overhaulPARIS European air and defense company EADS, the parent company of Airbus, said Monday it is cutting 5,800 jobs over the next two years as part of a major overhaul to reduce costs and refocus on civil aviation. The company said in a statement that the jobs would be eliminated from its corporate and space and defense divisions by the end of 2016. The many space and defense divisions will be combined into one arm, to be called Airbus DS. EADS, which is changing its overall name to Airbus, is also getting rid of its corporate headquarters, just outside Paris, and moving staff to another site, also outside Paris. The company had once sought to become less dependent on its civil aircraft business with a goal of increasing its defense business, maker of the A400M European freighter, to around half of total revenue. Those plans were shelved as the global economic downturn caused government to cut down on spending. Meanwhile, the civil aircraft business, which accounts for almost 70 percent of EADS group sales, is thriving, despite delays to the rollout of its new extra-wide body A350. EADS net earnings rose 45 percent in the third quarter, to 436 million euros. But CEO Tom Enders said Monday that the cuts were necessary if the company is going to compete and attract defense and space customers in growing markets outside Europe, which is not doing as well.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER10, 2013 A11 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at 1,520 1,600 1,680 1,760 1,840 JD JASON 1,760 1,800 1,840 S&P 500Close: 1,808.37 Change: 3.28 (0.2%) 10 DAYS 14,400 14,800 15,200 15,600 16,000 16,400 JD JASON 15,760 15,980 16,200 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,025.53 Change: 5.33 (flat) 10 DAYSAdvanced1536 Declined1515 New Highs157 New Lows64 Vol. (in mil.)3,035 Pvs. Volume3,088 1,661 1,676 1047 1513 165 37 NYSE NASD DOW 16058.4016015.2916025.53+5.33+0.03%+22.29% DOW Trans.7248.947206.087225.27+24.86+0.35%+36.15% DOW Util.489.99485.78487.89-2.40-0.49%+7.68% NYSE Comp.10159.8510132.5010146.25+15.03+0.15%+20.17% NASDAQ4081.784063.504068.75+6.23+0.15%+34.75% S&P5001811.521806.211808.37+3.28+0.18%+26.80% S&P4001315.591309.241311.00+1.32+0.10%+28.48% Wilshire 500019250.9619179.2919212.07+32.23+0.17%+28.12% Russell 20001134.271126.441129.46-1.95-0.17%+33.00% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Markets were put off by expectations for the sale of the companys flagship Sapien heart valves, which face new competition. The energy company will spend $950 million to buy oil and gas assets located in two West Texas counties as it diversifies. The teen retailer reworked its contract with CEO Michael Jeffries, tying compensation more closely with company performance. Sales barely budged last month as stiff competition for the burger chain resulted in flat traffic at U.S. restaurants. The food distributor will buy US Foods for about $3.5 billion in cash and stock, pushing annual sales to about $65 billion. Stocks rose Monday, led by those in the raw-material and financial sectors. The S&P 500 index set another record high and rose for the second straight day after a government report on Friday showed that the job market is stronger than economists expected. 30 35 $40 SD ON SyscoSYY Close: $37.62 3.31 or 9.6% $30.55$43.40 Vol.: Mkt.

Rock Crusher Rd, Crystal River (352) 330-3800 New And Pre-owned Motor Homes, Fifth Wheels & Travel Trailers Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market notched another record close Monday after a big acquisition in the food industry. Hope for a longer-term budget deal in Washington also helped. Food distributor Sysco rose the most in the Standard & Poors 500 index after the company announced an agreement to buy rival US Foods in an $8.2 billion deal. Syscos stock jumped $3.31, or 9.7 percent, to $37.62. Stocks extended a rally from Friday that was driven by a report of solid U.S. job gains. That boosted investor confidence that the economy was growing strongly enough to handle any pullback in the Federal Reserves economic stimulus. Were just continuing the bullishness that weve had, said Rex Macey, Chief Investment Officer of Wilmington Trust Investment Advisors, a unit of Wilmington Trust Bank. The S&P 500 index climbed 3.28 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,808.37. That put the index a point above its previous record close of 1,807.23 set November 27. Other indexes also made small gains. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 5.33 points, less than 0.1 percent, to 16,025.53. The Nasdaq composite increased 6.23 points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,068.75. Stocks were also supported by reports that U.S. lawmakers were moving closer to reaching a longer-term budget deal, said Bill Stone, chief investment strategist at PNC Wealth Management Group. Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, said Sunday on ABC that budget negotiations are making progress and moving in the right direction. The stock market stuttered in October after political wrangling over the budget caused a 16-day partial government shutdown that crimped economic growth and hurt consumer confidence. A budget deal could be viewed as positive, in the sense that it is putting to bed one more possible disruption, Stone said. In other corporate news, American Airlines rose 65 cents, or 2.7 percent, to $24.60 on the companys first day of trading after completing its merger with US Airways. There were no major economic reports for investors to focus on. The stock market has climbed to record levels this year as corporations have kept increasing their earnings and the Fed has kept up its $85 billion-amonth bond purchasing program. The Feds purchases have pushed up bond prices, lowered interest rates and encouraged investors to buy stocks. Fed policymakers will meet next week, though few analysts are predicting that they will make changes to their bond-buying program. The meeting runs from Dec. 17 to Dec. 18.

OPINION Page A12TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2013 Thank you, Citrus CountyThe Make A Difference Day Postal Service Food Drive was a huge success this year. Residents of Citrus County once again responded and donated 41,625 pounds of food to help those in our community who are hungry and need our support in these difficult times. The amount collected was a 6 percent increase more than last year. The Community Food Bank of Citrus County, Citrus United Basket, and the eight participating food pantries that directly benefited from this food drive Beverly Hills Community Church, Citrus County Family Resource Center, Citrus United Basket, DayStar Life Center, Floral City Church of Christ, First Baptist Church of Floral City, The Salvation Army and We Care Food Pantry are extremely grateful to our residents for their overwhelming generosity and support and the many others who helped make this food drive a success.

We also want to thank our volunteers for their help with registration and cooking up some great food. We look forward to seeing you again next year.C. Joseph Bennett Jr., M.D. Chairman NIAGARA-ONTHE-LAKE, OntarioYou can see the United States from here, over there across the raging Niagara River. But even if you couldnt, you could be sure that hardly anyone over there is making much of this weeks bicentenary of an event that shattered this town, sowed bitterness that persisted for generations and shaped an entire continent. Two centuries ago today, the American troops who had occupied this small community for seven months abandoned their snowy redoubt in a region then called Upper Canada, leaving the town by that time occupied almost exclusively by women, the men having left to serve in the British army or in various militia in flames and smoke. The War of 1812 produced several moments of unfettered brutality, none except perhaps for the burning of Washington, D.C., as piteous as this one. On Dec. 10, 1813, the residents of this area a Loyalist village, in American eyes stood calf-deep in snow in a ruthless chill and watched their homes, shops, churches and schools lie smoldering in ruin, all their possessions, their clothes, their memories consumed by fire. It may have been this cruelty on the Niagara that prompted the British the following year to exercise no restraint in attacking Buffalo and other western New York communities, in filibustering throughout the American frontier and in burning the American capital. At the distance of two centuries, confrontations like the War of 1812, itself a sideshow to the Napoleonic Wars, seem like quaint artifacts of another time, the hardships somehow more fabled than fearful, the human costs more anecdotal than actual. Today, for Americans, the burning of the White House in August 1814 is a mere curiosity, an aside during tours of the executive mansion, little more. As for the victims of the earlier torching in what we now call Ontario, they are a historical trifle, bit players in someone elses story. Not so, once you realize the importance of what happened here, in a country Americans mostly ignore, during a war Americans mostly have forgotten, in an episode Americans mostly have repressed. We cant cure American historical amnesia in a newspaper column, but we can fill in the human dimensions of a war whose North American combatants, in the phrase of the great Canadian historian Pierre Berton, did not invite the war, did not care about the issues and did not want to fight. Like the French and Indian War a half-century earlier, this was a European struggle that messily, maddeningly and, ultimately, murderously lapped up upon the eastern shores of the New World. In so doing, it forced men to fight a war whose causes they hardly understood even though the stakes could barely be larger control of the wild, rich and mostly unexplored land mass of North America. One lesson of the episode might be that great sweeping historical forces brush aside small groups of individuals tragic figures of collateral damage during big shifts among great powers and even in small movements of military units. Units like those commanded by Brig. Gen. George McClure, which laid waste a place that Michael Smith, an American visitor, described in 1812 as a beautiful and prosperous place of much trade inhabited by a civil and industrious people. Capt. William Hamilton Merritt, who arrived in town a day after the fires were set, reported seeing (n)othing but heaps of coals and the streets full of furniture that the inhabitants were fortunate enough to get out of their houses. Only one house, maybe two, stood undamaged. Some of these victims come to life in historical documents preserved by the Niagara Historical Society, pointedly located here on Castlereagh Street, named for the foreign minister in office in London at the time. They are people like Elizabeth Campbell, whose husband died in 1812 and whose home was destroyed in the burning of Newark, as Niagara-on-theLake was known then. One contemporary letter describes Campbell as having been exposed for three days and nights upon the snow with only the canopy of Heaven for a covering, her house once the seat of hospitality and plenty, reduced to ashes before her face, a few valuables she had endeavored to save (torn) from her by a monster in human form and carried off and divided. In the historical archives are scores of handwritten war claims like Campbells, which in script barely legible today lists a mare, a wash kettle, an iron oven, 15 glass tumblers, a barrel of pork (ditto beef), shovels, a tea tray and more. Or consider the record of loss prepared by Alexander Cameron, who filed his claim in consequence of the Capture of that place by the Forces of the United States and lists, among other items, a cariole (carriage), a harness, a side saddle, a cow and a mahogany dining table. It is hard to suppress the suspicion that the physical items listed in these claims are not all that these colonists lost. Nor is it possible to suppress the notion that equal hardship was faced on the American side of the border. We Americans are paying almost no mind to any of this, but little of it is being ignored here, in Canada. The residents of this town an art haven by virtue of its Shaw Festival theaters, an architectural attraction by virtue of its stately buildings, a tourist trap by virtue of its hokey bangers-and-mash Olde English air are marking this historical moment with both commemoration and introspection. The town is planning a torchlight cemetery procession, a candlelight service, a series of inspirational readings, musical performances, a commemorative bonfire, an outdoor flag ceremony and, this being December, cups of hot cider. It is a moment of reflection and remembrance about a war of which so many have no memory. McClure initiated the burning of Newark out of concern it could become a staging area for savage British attacks. Instead it became the pretext for savage British attacks. That is an irony of history, reminding us that in wars remembered as well as forgotten, there is nothing more ironic than history.David M.

Current policy is that only companies with a brick and mortar store in a state are required to pay sales taxes on purchases within that state. While online retailers such as Amazon are not currently required to collect sales taxes in Florida, customers who purchase untaxed items online are supposed to pay tax on the purchase, but few actually do. However, the State of New York passed a law requiring any company selling retail items in the state to pay sales tax. and Over had jointly challenged the law, but the New York Supreme Court ruled against them, and they appealed to the Supreme Court. The court declined to hear the case, leaving the lower court ruling intact. In an earlier decision on the issue, the high court suggested that there should be legislative rather than judicial remedies, and a bill now in Congress would require any online business with sales of more than $1 million to pay state sales taxes. The bill has passed the Senate but is stalled in the House. However this legislation is decided, the momentum for requiring online retailers to pay sales taxes is growing. Aside from the financial advantage selling untaxed items gives Internet retailers, states lose substantial revenue from the untaxed online sales. Currently, 45 states collect sales taxes, which amount to about a quarter of their total revenue. A recent study by the University of Tennessee estimated that nationwide the total lost revenue from online, catalog and mail-order sales is more than $23 billion annually. With this much money at stake, it seems only a matter of time until online sales will be subject to retail sales tax, just as purchases from brick and mortar stores are now. This will both benefit local businesses by leveling the playing field and generate substantial revenue at the state level. When Internet sales were in their infancy, we supported exempting them from sales taxes. Now, however, online sales are robust and growing every year. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, online sales are showing double digit growth and now represent almost 6 percent of all retail sales. In fairness, online retailers should collect and pay sales taxes at the same level as retailers who have brick and mortar businesses which pay both sales and property taxes. THE ISSUE:Supreme Court lets lower court ruling on Internet sales tax stand.OUR OPINION:Online retailers should collect same sales tax as local businesses.

Corporations have double standardsSeveral articles recently in various newspapers and other sources raise questions about our judicial system. In 1997, investigators started to look into Columbia/HCA operations. At the time, our current governor was chairman and CEO of the company. The board of directors pressured (Rick) Scott to resign after the investigation and in 1999 the name was changed back to HCA. According to Wikipedia, in 2000 and 2002, the company pled guilty to 14 felonies and agreed to pay the U.S. government $600plus million plus interest, $17.5 million to state Medicaid agencies, in addition to $250 million paid up to that point to resolve outstanding Medicare expense claims. In all, civil law suits cost HCA more than $2 billion to settle, by far the largest fraud settlement in U.S. history. A recent article from theBuffalo Newsstated Whistle-blowers expose huge drug company scam. Five employees were concerned about Johnson & Johnsons marketing of Risperdal. The article alleged that Johnson & Johnson and one of its units Janssen Pharmaceuticals marketed Risperdal for uses not approved by the Federal Drug Administration and then paid kickbacks to doctors and pharmacists who prescribed or promoted the drug. The settlement was approximately $2.2 billion. In the Nov. 6 edition of the Chronicle, Hedge fund giant SAC Capital to pay $1.88 billion dollar penalty, the company pled guilty to criminal fraud charges, proving that no financial institution is too big to jail, according to U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. The last sentence is what I find interesting. There is no mention of anybody from SAC going to jail as there was no one from either of the other two cases. We have billions of dollars in fraud, in the Johnson & Johnson case possible human suffering or death, clear criminal intent, yet nobody goes to jail. I watched these various corporate cases and yet failed to see anybody taking responsibility for the acts. Sadly, our not-so-blind U.S. Supreme Court somehow figured out the Founding Fathers believed corporations are covered in the U.S. Constitution like people. That ruling has unleashed billions of corporation dollars to be used to buy our supposedly independent elected officials. Yet, when the corporation (made up of people) commit fraud or other crimes, they no longer have the people status because the corporation pays a fine and no one goes to jail. I guess it is nice that our judicial system lets corporations have it both ways. Wouldnt it be interesting if we applied this same logic to individual noncorporation people? If you commit burglary, robbery or any other crime we just assess a financial penalty and you go free. We could do away with the prison system and save all that money and make money off the fines. The problem is that the person may commit more crime and there is no accountability for the illegal act. But if that is our logic, what is the difference with the corporation (people). Are they capable of doing the same crime again? Has anybody been held directly responsible for the criminal acts? In China they have executed corrupt corporate heads. I realize that is a bit extreme, but just allowing criminal conduct by any corporation to get off with a fine holds no (person) responsible and a person or many people within that corporation knew of the criminal acts and participated in them. It is time we truly do start to treat corporations as people, like our esteemed Supreme Court believes, and put corporate people responsible for crimes behind bars. A crime committed by a corporation or a person is still a crime and is perpetrated by human beings, not Wall Street titles.Roger B. Krieger Beverly HillsChange is growthThere is nothing wrong with changing your mind. In fact, it is a good thing. It will set you free to make a better life for yourself. Like many people, I used to make a New Years pledge every year, but this year I resolved not to. I am 84 and the world has grown too big for me to keep track of. Besides, it has too many things wrong with it for me to count. If I tried to list all the things that need fixing, this letter would turn into a book. Sitting on my bench in the backyard under the magnolia tree doesnt cost me a nickel and doesnt hurt anyone. My dog is as old as I am in dog years, so it is not surprising she is content to lie by my side. She is just as happy chewing on a big soup bone as a rich dog with a sirloin steak. She still likes to chase birds and squirrels, especially squirrels. She never catches them, but she doesnt seem to mind. I think Im a lot like my dog. When I was young I wasted a lot of time and energy chasing after the one bird that cant be caught. I did my best throughout the years to capture the blue bird of happiness, but so far she has eluded me. Sometimes when Im digging and planting in my yard, I do catch a glimpse of her doing loops in the air above me. Best of all, when Im resting like I am right now, just quietly humming to myself and not trying to change the world at all, the blue bird will fly down and light on my shoulder and chirp a sweet tune in my ear. So just go about your business, friends. Dont fret about not being happy. The wily blue bird will surprise you one day. She loves to come from nowhere, perch on your head for a quick look around and then fly straight into your heart.Franklin Aretz Beverly HillsOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER10, 2013 A13 Letters to THE EDITOR 000GRR5 License #DN 17606 Most Insurance Accepted Next to ACE in Homosassa( 352 ) 628-3443Se habla espaolLedgerdentistry.com000G0WC If you have been to another dentist and would like a second opinion about your treatment, bring your xrays and I will do a complete evaluation and develop a treatment plan with you that fits you and your needs.Free Second Opinion Quality Consignments Accepted 4851 West State Road 40 Ocala, FL 34482 Mon-Fri 8am-5pm 352-351-4951 #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 000GG9G Informed shoppers get the best deals.

Dempsey presses Congress to act on defense billWASHINGTON The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff is pressuring Congress to act this year on a defense policy bill. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey wrote to House and Senate leaders on Monday warning that allowing the defense bill to slip to January would add more uncertainty to the force and complicate the work of military commanders. Dempsey also said he fears delay could put the bill at risk. The Democratic and Republican leaders of the House and Senate Armed Services Committee have reached agreement on a compromise measure, with plans to reveal the details Monday afternoon. Dempseys letter adds pressure on House and Senate leaders to vote on the compromise before the House adjourns at weeks end.Passenger wakes up locked in planeHOUSTON A passenger who fell asleep while flying to Los Angeles said he awoke to discover himself alone and locked inside a dark, empty United Express plane in Houston. Tom Wagner told KTRKTV he was supposed to change planes Friday at George Bush Intercontinental Airport. But no staff noticed he was still sleeping in a window seat at the rear of the flight from Lafayette, La., before they closed up the jet. Wagner called his girlfriend who asked the airline to rescue him. ExpressJet, which operates United Express in partnership with United Airlines, apologized Saturday and said the incident is under investigation. It says crew conducted a post-flight walk-through.Princeton to start mass meningitis B vaccinationsPRINCETON, N.J. Princeton University has started the vaccination of nearly 6,000 students to try to stop an outbreak of type B meningitis. Its using a vaccine not yet approved for general use in the U.S. Seven students and one student visitor have been stricken by the potentially lifethreatening bacterial illness since March. The mass vaccination started Monday afternoon at a campus center. The vaccinations have been recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The Food and Drug Administration authorized the use of a vaccine that has been approved for use in Europe and Australia but is not yet licensed in the U.S. Students will get two doses, the first this week and the second in February.

Elian Gonzalezs first trip abroad since 2000HAVANA The young Cuban raft boy who was the subject of a high-profile international custody dispute more than a decade ago is making his first trip overseas since he was reunited with his father in 2000. Cuban state media said Elian Gonzalez is in Ecuador as part of a delegation to this weeks 23rd World Festival of Youth and Students. Gonzalez was 6 when he was rescued from the waters off Florida and taken to the United States. His mother perished.

He said in an interview published in official media that he has never regretted his fathers decision to push for custody.Native artifact sale makes $1.6 millionPARIS A French auction house, after ignoring a plea by the U.S. Embassy to delay an auction of sacred Hopi masks, sold them briskly Monday along with other contested Native American artifacts for $1.6 million. As protesters stood outside the Drouot auction house with banners reading Sacred Masks, Sacrilegious Sale, some 25 vividly colored Kachina masks went under the hammer inside. Though a judge ruled last week that the sale of the artifacts is legal in France, the American Indian Hopi tribe said the artifacts represent their ancestors spirits and cannot be sold as merchandise. Objects sold quickly, including the sacred Crow Mother, a menacing Hopi mask with billowing black plumes, that was bought at nearly twice its expected value at $171,000.Syrian army troops capture key townDAMASCUS, Syria Syrian troops seized a key opposition-held town Monday along a major northsouth highway critical for transporting the governments chemical weapons stocks to a port where they could be shipped out for destruction by the international community. The government has been cooperating with chemical weapons inspectors, and the capture of the town of Nabek may make the transfer of the stocks go more smoothly. But the head of the global chemical arms watchdog warned that worsening security may make it difficult to meet a Dec. 31 deadline to remove the toxic chemicals from the country. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressJOHANNESBURG Along a street lined with walled mansions shaded by graceful jacaranda trees, mourners, black and white, by the thousands rubbed shoulders Monday outside the villa where Nelson Mandela died, placing flower bouquets and condolence notes on top of piles already knee-high. Others danced while singing praise for the anti-apartheid leader a vivid example of the Rainbow Nation unity of race-blind multiculturalism championed by Mandela for South Africa. As players for the nations top Kaizer Chiefs soccer team were escorted inside the villa in one of the citys most exclusive neighborhoods to grieve with Mandelas relatives, hospital receptionist Nelson Jabulani Dube said the crowd of black, white and mixed race mourners transforming a street corner into a makeshift shrine was evidence that Mandela succeeded in breaking down barriers in a country defined for generations by race-based hate. Its all because of him, because he forgave the enemies at that time, they no longer are the enemies, said Dube, 33. For me the outcome is really stunning and unites us, and what you see here is a reflection of that. Michele Marija, an elderly white Johannesburg resident, spontaneously hugged a black woman, calling her my sister, after the woman made space for her so she could get a better view of the shrine. Then Marijas daughters also hugged the woman. Marija insisted that her daughters and granddaughters visit Mandelas house, saying his decision to forgive his white oppressors after being released from 27 years in jail saved South Africa from brutal bloodshed. We could easily have had a revolution and here we are now all living happily together which is something like a miracle and its all due to Madiba, Marija said, referring to Mandela by his clan name. Diane Mathabatha, a 60-year-old member of Mandelas Xhosa tribe visiting Mandelas house with her grandsons, remembered in the 1990s being bent on revenge along with much of her generation until Mandela got out of prison and said that would be wrong. He came out and embraced everybody and taught us that, you know, sometimes with your enemy, when you bring him closer, its much better than fighting him, Mathabatha said. Mncedisi Xego, related to Mathabatha by marriage, came to the shrine with his wife Lesley, who is white, and their children. Their 9year marriage wouldnt exist without Mandela, he said, adding that their children needed to see the shrine. It was very important for them to come and say thank you to Mandela because today, they can have the kind of lifestyle that they chose, Xego said. There are no restrictions in terms of where they can go, which schools they can go to, whom they can be friends with, who they can marry.

Undetectable gun ban renewed Senate adds 10 years to law against plastic firearms Associated PressWASHINGTON Narrowly beating a midnight deadline, Congress voted Monday to renew an expiring ban on plastic firearms that can evade airport detection machines. But Republicans blocked an effort to toughen the restrictions the latest defeat for guncontrol forces in the year since the grade school massacre in Newtown, Conn. By voice vote, the Senate gave final congressional approval to a 10-year extension of the prohibition against guns that can slip past metal detectors and X-ray machines. The House voted last week for an identical decade-long renewal of the ban, and the measure now goes to President Barack Obama for his signature. Obama, traveling to Africa for ceremonies honoring the late South African president Nelson Mandela, was expected to sign the bill before midnight using an auto pen, a White House official said. The device has been used for the signatures of traveling presidents since the administration of president George W. Bush. GOP senators rejected an effort by Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to strengthen the ban by requiring that such weapons contain undetachable metal parts. Some plastic guns meet the letter of the current law with a metal piece that can be removed, making them a threat to be slipped past security screeners at schools, airports and elsewhere. Who in Gods name wants to let plastic guns pass through metal detectors at airports or stadiums? Schumer said in an interview Monday. The National Rifle Association, which has been instrumental in blocking gun restrictions, expressed no opposition to renewing the law. But the gun lobby said it would fight any expanded requirements, including Schumers, that would infringe on our Second Amendment rights to bear arms. The rejection of stricter curbs highlighted the repeated setbacks for guncontrol advocates in Congress since last Dec. 14. On that day, a gunman fatally shot 20 first-graders and six staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School before killing himself. Despite that and other recent mass shootings, including at the Washington Navy Yard just blocks from the Capitol supporters of expanded gun control are nearing the end of a year in which they have been unable to push any new firearms restrictions through Congress. Plastic guns were in their infancy when President Ronald Reagan and Congress first enacted the ban against undetectable firearms, and when it was renewed in 1998 and 2003. But such weapons have become a growing threat and can now be produced by 3-D printers, which are becoming better and more affordable. GOP blocks new batch of nominations Associated PressWASHINGTON Senate Republicans have blocked a fresh batch of President Barack Obamas nominees in the aftermath of last months move by Democrats to weaken the minority partys ability to block presidential appointments. The action came Monday as the Senate returned to work for the first times since majority Democrats muscled through changes making it harder for senators to use filibusters or procedural delays to block most nominations. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid sought unanimous consent to approve more than 30 nominations. Most were minor appointees such as undersecretaries of the departments of State and Defense. GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee objected in effect blocking the nominations. He said he wanted to understand how senators can operate in a chamber without rules.

This is how we have to operate within our little world, Maddon said Monday at the winter meetings. So if it were to happen, its one of those thats almost the word devastating in a sense, but we have to recover from those kind of moments if it does actually occur. The low-budget Rays are rumored to be entertaining trade offers for the 28-year-old 2012 Cy Young Award winner who could be in for a huge payday after the 2015 season. It wouldnt be the first time Tampa Bay dealt a talented player for prospects. Last year, the Rays traded James Shields and Wade Davis to Kansas City for a package of prospects including this years AL Rookie of the Year, Wil Myers. Known for enjoying clubhouse hijinks to keep the team loose, Maddon, relaxed and enjoying a month driving around in his RV, was not dwelling on the possibility being without Price except in one area. I dont know where the crazy is going to come from because David did supply crazy, Maddon said.Cy Young winner Halladay retiresTwo-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay has retired after 16 seasons in the major leagues with Toronto and Philadelphia. The 36-year-old right-hander signed a one-day contract Monday to retire as a member of the Blue Jays, where he spent the first 12 years of his career. He made the announcement at a news conference at the winter meetings in Orlando. Halladay played for the Phillies from 2010-13, finishing with two injury-plagued seasons. He won an NL Cy Young Award in 2010, throwing a perfect game that season and a no-hitter in his first postseason game. Halladay was 203-105 with an ERA of 3.38 in 416 career games, including 390 starts.

Syracuse, which got the other first-place votes, and Ohio State moved up two places to second and third, while Wisconsin jumped four spots to fourth.

Not surprising, since the Tigers failed to win a league game. What a turnaround for the Tigers this season, in every respect. Running back Tre Mason was named the offensive player of the year, Gus Malzahn claimed the coaching award and the No. 2 Tigers were well represented on the All-SEC squad after their amazing run from worst to first. Also, Missouris Michael Sam beat out Alabamas C.J. Mosley for the defensive player of the year award, while Arkansas running back Alex Collins took the honor as top freshman. Mason was a unanimous choice at running back and overwhelming pick as the best offensive player after rushing for an SEC-leading 1,621 yards and 22 touchdowns, capped by a record 304-yard, fourtouchdown performance against Missouri in the league championship game. Malzahn revived the Tigers (12-1) in his first season as coach, taking over a proud program reeling from a 3-9 season, including a 0-8 mark in conference play. He installed a hurry-up spread option that quickly developed into one of the nations most prolific offenses. We use last season as motivation, thinking about all the hard times that we went through last year and being one of the worst teams in college football to now being one of the best, Mason said. Auburn proved it was for real with an upset of Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies.

The Florida State quarterback was among a record-tying six Heisman finalists revealed Monday, along with Northern Illinois Jordan Lynch, Texas A&Ms Johnny Manziel, Alabamas AJ McCarron, Auburns Tre Mason and Boston Colleges Andre Williams. Six finalists invited to New York for the presentation are the most since 1994. The winner will be announced Saturday night. Winston is the overwhelming favorite to win the award now that a sexual assault complaint against him in Tallahassee has been closed without charges being filed. He could also become the second freshman to win the award. Manziel was the first last year. The Aggies quarterback is trying to join another exclusive Heisman club by becoming the second player to win the award twice.

Former managers Cox, LaRussa and Torre get the nod Associated PressLAKE BUENA VISTA Joe Torre, Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox spent decades trying to beat each other, no holds barred. On this day, however, they were a mutual admiration society. And why not? They were going to the Hall of Fame together. With a combined eight World Series titles and more than 7,500 wins, the managerial trio made it to Cooperstown in results announced Monday. Each was unanimously selected when the 16 voters on the expansion era committee met a day earlier. Theyre not the easiest guys to manage against, thats for sure. But it was fun. It was always a battle, Cox said Monday at the winter meetings. And I consider them enemies on the field, but friends off the field. All three exceeded the magic benchmark of 2,000 wins only Connie Mack and John McGraw have won more. Managing against them, you certainly learned things, said Torre, now an executive vice president for Major League Baseball. I am honored to go into the Hall with these two guys. Induction ceremonies will be held July 27 in Cooperstown, N.Y. Candidates needed 12 votes for election. No one else on the 12-person ballot that included former players union head Marvin Miller and late New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner got more than six votes. Torre became the fifth manager to win four World Series championships, leading the Yankees to titles in 1996 and from 199800 beating Coxs Braves twice. After making only one trip to the playoffs in 14 seasons with the New York Mets, St. Louis and Atlanta, Torre guided the Yankees to the postseason in all 12 of his years in New York with a cool, patient demeanor. His popularity rankled Steinbrenner. George Steinbrenner changed my life giving me that opportunity at the end of said Torre, the seventh Yankees manager to be elected to the Hall. He just wanted to win. He felt he owed it to the city. Maybe, the fact I was a New Yorker, it really struck a nerve with me.

He also tweeted that he was a finalist about five minutes before the official announcement was made on ESPN by former winner Danny Wuerffel. NYC here I come!! Thanks to the coaches teammates and media relation couldnt of did it wt out them! the record-setting senior posted. McCarron completed 67 percent of his passes for 2,676 yards and 26 touchdowns for the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide (11-1). Mason has made a late push into the Heisman conversation as No. 2 Auburn reached the BCS title game. He ran for 304 yards and four TDs in the SEC championship game, and is ninth in the country in rushing (124 ypg) with 22 touchdowns Williams is the nations leading rusher at 175 yards per game, the 16th player in FBS to run for 2,000 yards in a season and the first since 2008. Winstons arrival as Florida States starting quarterback was being touted as a major event in the spring and he has surpassed the hype. The Alabama native is on pace to break the NCAA record for passer efficiency rating (190.1) and has already set records for yards passing (3,820) and TD passes (38) for a freshman. Winstons only issues have come off the field. About a month ago, a year-old sexual assault complaint against him made by a female Florida State student was given by police to the state attorneys office for a full investigation. A woman claimed Winston raped her. Winstons lawyer said the sex was consensual. Winston continued to play, and play well, during the investigation. Last week, the state attorney announced there would be no charges filed in the case, and two days later Winston threw for three touchdown passes and ran for a score as No. 1 Florida State won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game 45-7 against Duke and wrapped up a spot in the BCS title game. In the latest straw poll released Monday by, which has correctly predicted the last seven winners, Winston received seven of the 10 first-place votes and 26 points to easily outdistance Lynch (eight points and two first-place votes). Winston is also a finalist for the Maxwell and Walter Camp player of the year awards. All six finalists are expected to attend the ceremony, which would match for the most in Heisman history. That season Colorado tailback Rashaan Salaam won the Heisman, and Penn States Ki-Jana Carter and Kerry Collins, along with Alcorn States Steve McNair, Alabamas Jay Barker and Miamis Warren Sapp were finalists. In 1989, eight players were invited to the ceremony, but only four attended. Among the missing was Houstons Andre Ware, who won the award but was preparing for a game. HEISMANContinued from Page B1 Los Angeles Dodgers to two NL West titles in three seasons, retiring after 2010 with a record of 2,326-1,997. Hes the only manager to have more than 2,000 hits as a player he was the 1971 NL MVP and 2,000 wins in the dugout. Joe taught a lot of us about how to win the right way and lose the right way, La Russa said. The savvy La Russa won World Series titles with Oakland in 1989 and with St. Louis in 2006 and retiring days after beating the Texas Rangers in a seven-game thriller. Of the nine managers with three or more World Series titles, the other seven all have been inducted. La Russa finished with the third-most wins by a manager in a career that began with the Chicago White Sox in 1979 and ended with a record of 2,728-2,365. I miss the winning and losing, La Russa said. Someday Ill be with a team, I think. Id like to be part of the competition again. Coxs managerial career began in 1978 with Atlanta, but he was fired after four seasons only one above .500. A fouryear run in Toronto ended in 1985 with an AL East title, and Ted Turner lured him back to the Braves as their GM. Cox returned to the dugout in 1990, and following one losing season he went on one of the most successful regular-season runs by any skipper, leading the Braves to 14 straight division titles and a World Series championship in 1995. He retired in 2010 fourth behind La Russa in career wins with a record of 2,504-2,001. Cigar-chomping and fiercely loyal to his players, Cox was ejected a major league record 159 times. Two of his pitchers during the remarkable stretch during the s, 300-game winners Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, head the newcomers on this years players ballot. Results of voting by the Baseball Writers Association of America is scheduled for Jan. 8. I just hope Glav and Mad Dog can be on the stage with me, Cox said. That would be the final finishing touch, going in with those two. Miller, the pioneering head of the players association from 1966-81, was rejected for admission to the Hall for the sixth time he appeared on a committee ballot. He fell one vote short of induction in 2010 and received no more than six votes this year. Words cannot adequately describe the level of disappointment and disbelief I felt when learning that once again the Hall of Fame has chosen to ignore Marvin Miller and his unparalleled contributions to the growth and prosperity of Major League Baseball, players association head Tony Clark said in a statement. Over the past 50 years, no individual has come close to matching Marvins impact on the sport. This years committee included Hall of Famers Rod Carew, Carlton Fisk, Whitey Herzog, Tom Lasorda, Paul Molitor, Joe Morgan, Phil Niekro and Frank Robinson; Blue Jays President Paul Beeston; retired club executive Andy MacPhail; Philadelphia President Dave Montgomery; White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf; Steve Hirdt of the Elias Sports Bureau; Bruce Jenkins of the San Francisco Chronicle; BBWAA SecretaryTreasurer Jack OConnell; and retired Fort Worth StarTelegram reporter Jim Reeves. This years ballot, chosen by a BBWAA-appointed historical overview committee, covers baseballs expansion era. Players, managers, umpires, executives whose most significant impact was from 1973 and later were considered as part of a three-year cycle. The golden era (1947-72) will be voted on in 2014 and the pre-integration era (1871-1946) will be judged in 2015.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE winning 73-yard touchdown. Then they knocked off two-time defending national champion Alabama with the play of the year: a 109-yard return of a missed field goal with no time on the clock for a stunning 34-28 upset. Last Saturday, the Tigers defeated Missouri 59-42 in a shootout for the SEC title, then slid into a shot at the BCS crown against top-ranked Florida State with Ohio States loss in the Big Ten championship game. Its just been very unique, Malzahn said. Its been one of the more unique experiences Ive ever been a part of. Mason was joined on the first team by two teammates: offensive tackle Greg Robinson and defensive end Dee Ford. Auburn placed three more players on the second team: center Reese Dismukes, tight end C.J. Uzomah and cornerback Chris Davis, whose long return beat Alabama. No. 3 Alabama and SEC East champ Missouri each had four players on the first team, more than any other school. Denied a chance to play for a third straight national title, Alabama was led by Mosley a unanimous choice at linebacker along with offensive linemen Cyrus Kouandjio and Anthony Steen and punter Cody Mandell. Sam, named on every ballot at defensive end, paced the conference in sacks (10.5) and tackles behind the line (18.5). Another Missouri end, Kony Ealy, also made the first team, as did cornerback E.J. Gaines and offensive lineman Justin Britt. Johnny Manziel repeated as the first-team quarterback with another stellar season, leading the SEC in total yards with 3,732 passing and 686 on the ground. He accounted for 41 touchdowns, but a poor defense left the Aggies with a disappointing 8-4 record. Texas A&M had two more representatives from its high-scoring offense: receiver Mike Evans and lineman Jake Matthews. Georgia, despite an injury plagued season that didnt meet expectations, had three first-teamers with tight end Arthur Lynch, linebacker Ramik Wilson and kicker Marshall Morgan. The rest of the first-team offense was Vanderbilt receiver Jordan Matthews, LSU running back Jeremy Hill, Mississippi State lineman Gabe Jackson, Arkansas center Travis Swanson and LSU all-purpose threat Odell Beckham Jr. On defense, the remaining selections were tackle Kelcy Quarles and end Jadeveon Clowney of South Carolina, Tennessee linebacker A.J. Johnson, Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III, Vanderbilt safety Kenny Ladler and Mississippi safety Cody Prewitt. Manziel, Mosley, Jackson, Clowney, Jake Matthews and Jordan Matthews were repeat selections to the first team. Georgia running back Todd Gurley dropped to the second team after missing three games with an ankle injury. Alabamas AJ McCarron slipped from second-teamer to honorable mention despite an impressive senior season, an indication of the tremendous depth at quarterback in the SEC. Every school but Kentucky was represented by at least one first-teamer. The Wildcats did have a couple of players on the second team. The 81st annual AP All-SEC team was selected by a 14-member media panel representing each of the conferences 11 states.

B4TUESDAY, DECEMBER10, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFOOTBALL NFL BRIEFSPatriots put TE Gronkowski on injured reserveFOXBOROUGH, Mass. The New England Patriots have placed tight end Rob Gronkowski on injured reserve with a damaged right knee. Gronkowski was hurt midway through the third quarter of the Patriots 27-26 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday when he was hit on the right knee by safety T.J. Ward after a 21-yard reception. Gronkowski missed the first six games this season after forearm and back surgeries. In the next six games, he led all NFL tight ends with 37 catches and 560 yards receiving. On Sunday, he had two catches for 32 yards. The Patriots signed tight end D.J. Williams to the 53-man roster.Status of Jones-Drew still unclearJACKSONVILLE Its unclear if Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew will be available for Sundays game with the Buffalo Bills. Jones-Drew, who rushed for his first 100yard game of the 2013 season last Thursday against Houston, suffered a muscle strain in the fourth quarter and did not return to the game. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said Monday that Jones-Drew may be held out of practice until Friday. Bradley said the Jaguars will just monitor Jones-Drews progress. The coach said, It might be towards the end of the week that well have a better idea where hes at with that muscle strain.Mathieu to have season-ending knee surgeryTEMPE, Ariz. Tyrann Mathieus terrific rookie NFL season has come to a premature end. Arizona coach Bruce Arians has confirmed that Mathieu tore an ACL and sustained further damage in his left knee and will undergo surgery. Mathieu, who earned the nickname Honey Badger in his days at LSU, was Arizonas starting safety and had been in on almost every defensive play for the Cardinals. He was injured returning a free kick after John Abraham had tackled Kellen Clemens in the end zone in the third quarter of Arizonas 30-10 victory over St. Louis on Sunday. Mathieu was buried in a pile of tacklers. He tried to jog off the field but his knee buckled and he collapsed. Mathieu blew a kiss to the crowd as he was carted off.Redskins Shanahan might sit RG3 for yearASHBURN, Va. Mike Shanahan is still the coach of the Washington Redskins, but Robert Griffin III might not be the starting quarterback this week. Shanahan said Monday that he was thinking about sitting Griffin for the rest of the season because of concern that the quarterback could be injured. Shanahan points out Griffin has been sacked 24 times in five games, and that two of the Redskins three remaining games will be played on artificial turf, including Sunday at Atlanta. Its a change of pace of Shanahans previous stance that Griffin needed as many game snaps as possible to improve. Shanahan no longer spoke as if its a given that hell be coaching the Redskins next season. He said owner Dan Snyder will make that decision at the end of the season.From wire reports COLLEGE FOOTBALL BRIEFSFSUs Stork among finalists for RimingtonAuburns Reese Dismukes and Florida States Bryan Stork are among the six finalists for the Rimington Trophy, which goes to the nations best center.

Ten years later, the 15th-ranked Knights are preparing to play in the schools first BCS bowl game on Jan. 1 against No. 6 Baylor. Its been whirlwind season for sure, but is a spot that even OLeary acknowledged Monday is happening a year earlier than he envisioned for his relatively young team. When we showed up 10 years ago (the program) was a low point because there werent any players here that could really win football games, he said. So we did what we should do with a coach taking over a program, we built a foundation. And then each year you put some furniture in the building. Thats what you gotta get done. The big thing is we got better each year and weve had our ups and downs, but I think the consistency of the program, and the culture of the program is in place right now to move forward and get better each and every year. The dominoes that fell into place this season were many. Most Knights fans will probably most remember the ones that took place on the field, such as the midseason upset of Louisville or the eight-game win streak to close out the regular season. But the biggest actually was set late last year when UCF officials decided to appeal a one-year postseason ban that was part of sanctions levied in July 2012 for major recruiting violations in football and basketball. UCF accepted a one-year postseason ban in basketball, along with a $50,000 fine, five years probation and reduction of basketball scholarships. But school President John Hitt and athletic director Todd Stansbury said they believed the football ban was too severe since none of the players the NCAA said UCF had recruited illegally played football for the Knights. The appeals process allowed the Knights to participate in the Beef OBradys Bowl in 2012 Then, departing from their usual track record toward such appeals, the NCAA sided with UCF in April and threw out the football ban. Had UCFs appeal not been successful, it would have served the ban this season and wouldnt be eligible to play in the BCS. It was a gamble, but one that OLeary said is glad they made. I thought it was a big decision and I guess a lot of people jumped on the bandwagon after we won it, he said. But I thought we had a legitimate shot at winning that because of some of the things that took place (and) why we got restrictions as far as it wasnt much of a football deal. The outcome has now left the Knights with a chance to join the ranks of established in-state programs at Florida, Florida State and Miami as BCS bowl winners. Its also brought an instant national attention to UCF that many thought wasnt possible after conference realignment completely reshuffled the Big East Conference that UCF originally signed up to join. That spotlight has also included the rapid rise of junior quarterback Blake Bortles NFL draft stock in recent months. While that kind of buzz could be a distraction for a young team in this position for the first time, OLeary said he met with Bortles and his parents Sunday night and that he doesnt anticipate that being an issue during their preparations. Still, UCF offensive coordinator Charlie Taaffe, who is in his fifth year as an assistant at the school, said that doesnt mean there isnt a recognition that the program must take advantage of the position its in. You have to live in the moment. You cant dwell on the past, either success or failures, Taaffe said And you look too far ahead to the future. Whats important is now. Whats happening now. And obviously weve been a pretty good story this season. Now weve got one more opportunity facing us. Thats where the focus needs to be now as we prepare to really do something special, and not just play in a BCS bowl, but win it. Associated PressCentral Florida quarterback Blake Bortles is pressured by South Florida defensive lineman Aaron Lynch on Nov. 29 in Orlando. Bortles will lead the No. 15 Knights into the programs first BCS bowl game Jan. 1 against No. 6 Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl. Sleeping giant UCF reaches first BCS bowl game Dolphins stay hot in the snow Associated PressDAVIE Looking for their first playoff berth since 2008, the Miami Dolphins are getting warmer. A win in the snow at Pittsburgh helped their chances, and now the Dolphins are back in balmy South Florida preparing to play at home Sunday against AFC East leader New England. A defeat wouldnt doom the Dolphins (7-6). But theyre tied with Baltimore in the race for the AFCs sixth and final wild-card berth, and even a sweep of the final three games might not be enough to make the postseason. After facing the Patriots, Miami will return north to play Buffalo on Dec. 22, then conclude the regular season at home against the New York Jets on Dec. 29. All the games are going to be tough, said cornerback Brent Grimes, whos not worrying about potential scenarios. We just need to win. I dont know how youre looking at it, but we need to win. We need to take care of our business. The Dolphins have done so lately, winning back-toback games for the first time since September. Theyre 3-1 since a dismal defeat against previously winless Tampa Bay. Theyre 4-2 since tackle Jonathan Martin left the team and a bullying scandal threatened to send the season into a tailspin. Much work remains if the Dolphins are to end a streak of four consecutive losing seasons. First theyll need a breakthrough against the Patriots (10-3), a challenge daunting enough to supersede playoff talk. All that matters is that with an excellent team coming to town, thats a full plate, coach Joe Philbin said Monday. Were going to have to play extremely well. Thats what we have to keep focused on. New England has won seven consecutive games in the series, including a 27-17 victory in Week 8 after Miami led 17-3 at halftime. Given the lopsided recent history between teams, its no surprise Miami is an underdog at home. By contrast, this years Dolphins have already beaten their final two opponents, and both teams have losing records. But the Dolphins have won at Buffalo only twice since 2004, and theyve swept a season series against the Jets only once since 2004. The Ravens have a tougher closing schedule than Miami, with three games against division leaders, beginning next Monday at Detroit. But if Miami and Baltimore finish in a two-way tie for the conferences sixth-best record, the Ravens hold the tiebreaker because they won when the teams met in Week 5. Despite the Dolphins winning record, theyve been outgained this season by 310 yards and rank in the lower half of the NFL in total offense, total defense, rushing and passing yardage, and run defense. They would have lost Sunday, but the Steelers Antonio Brown stepped out of bounds by inches before reaching the end zone on the games crazy final play. I might have been saying a couple of Hail Marys, Philbin said. I know my mother was, wherever she was. Despite the narrow margin, the Dolphins are buoyed by a sense theyre heading in the right direction on offense after sputtering much of the season. With the 34-28 victory, they exceeded 27 points for the first time all year, becoming the last NFL team to do so. They scored a fourth-quarter touchdown for the first time in eight games. Our guys are making plays, Philbin said. We made a point of emphasis when we got to December. We said, Were not going to reinvent the wheel. Weve got to get better at our stuff. Weve got to step up and make plays. And our guys have done that.

HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:Music at the Museum continues Thursday/C6 Dr. Carlene WilsonWELLNESS CORNER Protect yourself against shingles Every year, 1 million Americans develop shingles. Shingles, also called herpes zoster or zoster, is a painful rash that appears on only one side of your face or body and lasts from two to four weeks. Shingles is caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV), the same virus that causes chicken pox. After you have had chicken pox, the virus remains dormant in your nerve cells, and can reappear many years later as shingles. Shingles occurs most often in people who are older than 50, who have medical conditions that keep the immune system from working properly, or who take immunosuppressive drugs. Several days or weeks before the rash appears, many people experience headaches, fatigue, sensitivity to light, abnormal skins sensations such as numbness or tingling, or flu-like symptoms without fever. Shingles is not usually diagnosed, though, until the blistering rash appears somewhere on the body. At first the rash may look like insect bites, poison ivy or an allergic reaction, but it usually develops into watery blisters that crust over after a few days. The main symptom is intense pain, sensitivity, and itching. Shingles occurs one side of the body, often as a strip or band on the back and chest, or on the face around one eye. See a doctor if you suspect you have shingles, because the rash could result in a secondary infection or other health complication. It is especially important to seek treatment quickly if you have shingles on your face. Your doctor will prescribe an antiviral drug, nerve pain medication, and perhaps a corticosteroid for the rash. The rash lasts seven to 10 days and is typically completely healed in two to four weeks. One in five people with shingles develop post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN), severe pain in the affected area that continues for months or years. A few people develop scarring or damage to their vision. Shingles itself is not contagious, but people who have never had chicken pox can get it if they are exposed to shingles. A vaccine against shingles was licensed in 2006. The vaccine cuts your chances of getting shingles in half, and reduces the intensity of the painful symptoms if you do get See WILSON/ Page C3 Beating the blues this winterFor most people, the holiday season is a festive one, full of family, friends, food and good times. But for others, winter is less than joyful. They may have a particular reason for their sadness, or they may be suffering from SAD Seasonal Affective Disorder.The number of people with SAD increases in northern areas where winter is longer and colder, but Floridians and other southerners can be afflicted as well. It seems to be caused at least partially by shorter winter days when there is less sunlight, as this can affect the bodys circadian rhythm and chemical balances in the brain. Symptoms resemble those of depression, and include fatigue, hopelessness, weight gain, loss of interest in activities and increased sleeping. Antidepressants can be effective, as the symptoms are similar. A key indicator of SAD is the recurrence of symptoms during about the same months every year. A treatment for SAD is light therapy, involving exposure to a light box until the days begin to lengthen. Seasonal Affective Disorder By Carly Zervis / For the Chronicle 000GOD2


C2TUESDAY, DECEMBER10, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE HEALTH& LIFE Nuts can help reduce risk of heart disease Many of us know that nuts have good nutritional value. Some of us eat them regularly. I try to eat nuts every day. Nuts are rich in nutrients, such as unsaturated fatty acids, fiber, vitamins and minerals. They may confer cardioprotective (help protect heart), anticarcinogenic (may help prevent cancer), anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. As a result of the evidence, the FDA in 2003 recommended consumption of 1.5 ounces of nuts daily as part of a low-fat diet that may reduce the risk of heart disease. More recently, a randomized trial showed that a nut-containing Mediterranean diet was associated with a significantly lower risk of cardiovascular events, as compared with patients assigned to a control diet. Recently, an excellent study was published in New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) this is one of the most prestigious medical journals. The investigators studied the association between nut intake and mortality among 76,464 women in the Nurses Health Study (1980-2010) and 42,498 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (1986-2010). The study clearly showed that even eating nuts once a week lowered mortality (death rate) by at least 7 percent compared to those who did not eat nuts at all. The benefit was much higher in those who eat nuts regularly. Those who ate nuts two to four times a week had 13 percent mortality benefit and those who ate them seven times or more every week had mortality benefit of 20 percent. This is a very significant benefit. There were also significant inverse associations between nut consumption and deaths resulting from cancer, heart disease and respiratory disease. Results were similar for peanuts and tree nuts, and the inverse association persisted across all subgroups. This is a very good study; it is a large study done at the prestigious institution of Harvard University and it is published in an excellent journal. It had long follow-up and so, overall, I am very happy with the quality of the study. Since it is an observational study, there are some limitations. Because the mechanisms through which nuts may affect health and longevity are still unclear, more research is needed to elucidate the underlying biological mechanisms. Also, we do not know the associations between nut consumption and cancer recurrence and mortality among cancer patients. This requires further research. I suggest all of you to consider adding some nuts in your diet. Please do not go overboard. Excessive consumption can increase cholesterol and be more harmful.

Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Apound of chicken wings with blue cheese dip now tops the so-called healthy menu for a national restaurant chain one sign of the low-carbohydrate diet trend that is sweeping our overweight nation. To cancer experts, a diet that helped Americans lose weight and keep it off would be welcome. Researchers have confirmed that extra body fat leads to an estimated 90,000 cancer deaths each year. But a low-carb diet can be a high-risk option when it comes to health. Eating more vegetables and fruits or both together has been linked to a lower risk of lung, mouth, esophageal, stomach and colon cancer. Scientists dont know which nutrients are most protective against cancer, so American Cancer Society nutrition guidelines call for eating a wide variety of colorful vegetables and fruit. In general, the more colorful the food is, the more cancer-fighting antioxidants and phytochemicals it contains. Adults should eat at least five or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day for cancer prevention. Nearly all grain products, fruits and some vegetables are banned in the first few weeks of a typical low-carbohydrate diet to trigger a change in metabolism and to reduce carb cravings. Dieters are told to keep their carbohydrate intake below 20 grams a day to force the body to burn fat for energy. This can mean missing out on the important vitamins and minerals found in restricted foods like grains, fruits, milk, and yogurt the last two being important sources of calcium. As a result, many low-carb diet plans recommend taking a multivitamin/mineral supplement with calcium. But these diets do allow for the consumption of saturated fats. And that raises another concern a concern about cancer. Diets high in saturated fat increase the risk of prostate and colon cancer. American Cancer Society guidelines recommend people limit their intake of saturated fat. Recently, low-carb diet programs too have addressed the saturated fat issue by putting more emphasis on healthier protein sources chicken, turkey and fish, for example, rather than unlimited servings of red meat. At issue is whether these diets result in longer-term maintenance of that weight loss. So far theres little evidence that that is the case. One study put both a low-carb diet and a low-fat diet to the test. Results were published in the New England Journal of Medicine and found people on the Atkins plan, the original lowcarb diet, lost more weight, more quickly, than a comparison group of people on a standard low-fat diet. But a year later, the Atkins dieters were no lighter than the low-fat diet group. So with 64 percent of Americans currently overweight, what are we to do? If you want to lose weight, youve got to cut back total calories and exercise more. The real key to long-term weight loss is watching your portions and overall calorie intake. I have told many of my patients that we were raised to clean our plates before getting up from the table. Often we eat the last few bites even though we are stuffed. If we limit our portions, and eat only what we need, we would be on the right track to better health. Too many people are only focusing on one aspect of the diet: avoiding carbohydrates. Counting carbs alone is not going to do it. So what can you do? Choose protein sources that are low in saturated fats: chicken, turkey, fish and legumes instead of red meats. Eat five or more servings of colorful vegetables and fruit each day. Eat at least three servings of whole grain foods each day, such as whole-wheat bread, brown rice, and wholegrain cereals. Be sure half of your grain foods come from whole grain sources. People who want to try a lowcarb diet may get the best results by limiting both potatoes and long hours on the couch. Boosting physical activity should be a part of any diet or other weight control program. For cancer prevention, theres evidence that physical activity itself helps lower cancer risk in addition to its role in helping people maintain a healthy body weight. The American Cancer Society recommends at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity on at least five days a week. Eating a mostly plant-based diet with limited amounts of saturated fat, being physically active and maintaining a healthy weight are key to preventing cancer. If youre one of the many, though, who is going the low-carb route, follow the guidelines mentioned above. Regular exercise, a nutritious diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and a healthy weight are the lifestyle factors which each person can control, are key to lowering cancer risk.Dr. C.

Ithought I would write about crowns that come loose today. As many of you already know, a crown can come loose even though it has been cemented with permanent cement. In most cases a loose crown can be re-cemented in a very short visit. It is important to check the remaining tooth to see if there is decay present or not. If there is decay present, it can sometimes be removed and repaired. If this is the case, the original crown can still be re-cemented saving the patient the cost of time and money for a new crown. There are times, however, that there is too much decay present to allow the above to happen. In these cases the decay should be removed, the area repaired and an impression taken to fabricate a new crown that fits the nowmodified tooth. Doing things this way ensures long-term success of the restoration. As we all know, finances can be the driving force behind some of the decisions we make in day to day life. It is not uncommon for me to hear this question from a patient Is there any other way you can fix this without making a new crown? This is when the dentist needs to get creative while still paying attention to doing the right thing for the patient. I have seen circumstances in the past where the ideal scenario for the tooth was a new crown but the finances or time just was not there. There have been occasions where I was able to clean out any decay that was present and cement the crown leaving a void between the crown and tooth. When the decay is positioned at the margin of the crown/tooth interface, you end up with a void between the same. Once the crown is cemented, I have been able to patch fill the area of the crown/tooth interface. This is not an ideal situation, but is does restore the tooth to function while saving the patient some time and money. The patient should always be made aware that, though an alternative approach has been used to try and save some time and money, it could backfire in the future and it may involve additional costs of time and money. Even though I didnt mention this happening to a bridge, the same holds true for a bridge. The patient needs to be aware that with a bridge things become more complicated and might not be as straightforward. I hope this was an interesting topic as this scenario presents itself routinely in a dental office. Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Many health insurance plans pay for your shingles vaccine if you are 60 or older. The vaccine is most effective if it is given during your 50s or 60s. The shingles vaccine is not recommended if you are allergic to gelatin, the antibiotic neomycin or any other component of the shingles vaccine, or if you are taking immune system-suppressing drugs. Half of all Americans who are 85 or older have had shingles at some time. You can get shingles more than once. Shingles can be extremely painful, with lingering consequences. It can disrupt your life for weeks and cause you to miss several days of work. If you are 50 or older, ask your doctor about the shingles vaccine and protect yourself from unnecessary suffering.

Health Care Reform; right or wrong, good or bad, no matter how you feel or think about it, we are all affected in one way or another. Citrus County is the third oldest in population county in Florida and the fifth in the U.S. covering about 581 square miles serving a population of 141,236. A shortage of health professionals serving low income individuals also designates Citrus County as a medically underserved. Health indicators from the Florida Department of Health suggest a growing number of Citrus County citizens lack access to primary care and suffer from disease burden. Mortality and morbidity rates for the county are higher than benchmarks for the entire state of Florida and Health Resources and Services Administration, (HRSA), national rates. Bottom line, as one of the important healthcare partners in Citrus County, Nature Coast EMS is meeting tomorrow with health care and related professionals to identify gaps in the system and discuss opportunities to improve the health of our community through an integrated program. The goal of this initiative is to establish a Mobile Integrated Healthcare Program that is a sustainable system of coordinated care. This program has proven to be successful in other communities across the country with variable objectives to meet the individual community needs; to improve health outcomes among medically vulnerable populations; and to save healthcare dollars by preventing unnecessary ambulance transports, emergency department visits and hospital readmissions. Community paramedicine is a relatively new field with local programs emerging as a response to the health care crisis. Specific roles and services are determined by each communitys unique health needs, and consistent with medical direction. International programs have had success in reducing emergency transports and hospital readmissions. We will update you in the coming months on how Nature Coast EMS Mobile Integrated Healthcare Program is progressing with the goals we have set forth. In the spirit of the season, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Kwanzaa from me and Nature Coast EMS team members. Have a wonderful, safe holiday season, cheers to a happy new year and as always, take care and stay well.

Allergy treatment available without shots Allergic disorders affect the ear, nose and throat system frequently, more often than the patient and doctor think. Allergies may be seasonal and very minor or year-round and may be a significant problem. The allergic reaction causes a lot of inflammation in the lining of the nose, sinuses and airway and is responsible for many different symptoms which everybody is familiar with including sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes and congestion. For years, patients have had treatment choices which include avoidance if possible, allergy medications and when all else fails, allergy shots which work by desensitizing the patient to the allergen. There is now an option to allergy shots. It is called sublingual allergy treatment. Basically, what happens is the patient is tested and drops are prepared and placed under the tongue instead of injecting with a needle through the skin. This therapy has been used in Europe for about 60 years, but unfortunately, America and the FDA has been slow to catch on. We have been doing sublingual allergy therapy for a number of years and simply had patients sign off and be aware that it was off-label FDA approved. But as of earlier this year, applications to the FDA may speed up the approval system because just as myself and other otolaryngologists and allergists around the country have been doing so, prescribing the drops without FDA approval, the powers to be are finally catching on that this is a legitimate process that works very well. There are many different candidates who could benefit from sublingual therapy because it can be done at home and does not require a visit to a doctors office, taking a shot and waiting the typical 20 minutes to make sure that there is no reaction. Children who are fearful of needles, business people who travel quite a bit andhave a busy schedule, people who are shut-ins such as nursing home patients all benefit from the convenience of drops. In this day and age we have to also consider the varied insurance polices that people have. For example, if you have a very high deductible and no coverage for allergy shots or office visits, the sublingual therapy might be a good choice as generally they are reasonably priced. Over the number of years that allergy drops have been utilized in Europe, they are proven to be quite successful in treating allergies with a minimum of side effects or problems. If you have seasonal symptoms, three to six months a year and they are mild and controlled with medications, you might not want to bother, but if you are at the end of your rope and have tried all types of allergy therapies and just have stayed away from allergy shots because of fear of the shots or the time consumed, this might be an excellent option. There is some strong evidence that this will replace allergy shots altogether in the future. Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

COMMUNITYCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER10, 2013 C5 Special to the ChronicleA Childrens Grief Awareness Day Candlelight Ceremony was held Nov. 21 at the Childrens Remembrance Garden on the campus of Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coasts Hospice House, 3350 W. Audubon Park Path, Lecanto. Grieving children need support. And the first step in that support is for the rest of us to become more aware of what these young people are going through. Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast presented Childrens Grief Awareness Day Candlelight Ceremonies at locations throughout Citrus and North Central Florida to help assure grieving children receive this much needed support. Many people dont realize that it takes most children much longer to deal with their grief than we expect and that the amount of inner turmoil, invisible to most, is much more intense than we can imagine, Marylin Bloom, Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast Herrys Kids director of Pediatric Services said. Experiencing a death can be overwhelming for anyone, but it is especially difficult for those so young. Held the third Thursday of November each year, the Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast Childrens Grief Awareness Day Candlelight Ceremony is an opportunity to recognize and support the grieving children in community children who all too often feel alone in their journey of grief. Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast Herrys Kids Pediatric Services provides specialized services to children and teens with life-threatening illness and offers grief support and therapeutic camps to young people who have experienced a loss. There is no cost for any of the programs and services provided by Herrys Kids Pediatric Services.

For more information, call 352-726-4700 or go to NEWS NOTES Our curiosity was piqued as Night Watch characters at the Art Center Theatre led us through a mysterious, mindboggling maze of circumstances before reaching the most surprising conclusion. Written by Lucille Fletcher and directed by multi-talented and gifted director Fran Scott, the nine-member cast pulled out all of the stops that kept us thoroughly guessing as scene after scene of believability and unbelievability unfolded. Brilliantly written and cast, Night Watch, a two-act play with two scenes each, is a tense mystery drama involving Elaine Wheeler, played magnificently by Kelly Lapp, the talented director of childrens ministries at First Baptist Church in Crystal River. She astoundingly became Elaine, a woman struggling to be believed and yet secretly plotting her perfect crime with uncanny maneuvering of the thought processes of the characters surrounding her. In a Manhattan townhouse and through the window of an abandoned building across the way, night after night, Elaine carries out her plans. Husband John, played by Stephen DAndrea, licensed massage therapist and marketing consultant and veteran of a variety of theatrical productions in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, brings his wit and charm, remarking that the maid, Helga, played superbly by Wendy Chesnovitch, has the manner of a storm trooper. Chesnovitch dedicated this show to the memory of her husband, John, with whom she starred in a stellar list of plays, including The Music Man, Oklahoma, Guys and Dolls and Come Blow Your Horn. John Morgan as the bewildered policeman, Vanelli, seems more interested in the artwork displayed in the apartment, remarking, Hope you have adequate insurance on this stuff. Neighbor Appleby was played by George Wurster, a University of Florida theater major in his first performance with the Art Center. Wurster spent a decade with Disney in the Magic Kingdom as a costume/face character and puppeteer. His portrayal of a weekly columnist with a flamboyant, dramatic flair kept pitting the characters theories in multiple directions. Blanche Cooke, a friend of Elaines, was played by DiAnne Klatt in her debut with the Art Center. Klatt has performed in several musicals and comedies in Ocala and Spring Hill, including Call Me Madame, and Anything Goes. A jazz and tap dancing enthusiast, she manages her husbands law office. Investigator Lt. Walker, played by Lenny Klatt, further enhances the mystery of it all by profusely listing all of the negative crime statistics he can think of, to the dismay of the cast. Rationalizations fly out the proverbial window as each player attempts to help Elaine through her supposed terror. Mary Bykowski played Dr. Lake, the psychiatrist from a reality clinic in Switzerland. A veteran of musicals, The Sound of Music, The King and I, The Music Man and Mame, this was her first nonmusical part. She brought indepth realism to her role as she watches Elaine sit transfixed, looking out the window and vividly describing her imaginary childhood. Blanche Cooke, her friend, supposedly on her way to the Mayo Clinic, cancels her job there to console Elaine. Gary Ammerman as Sam Hoke, the deliveryman a retired elementary school principal, has a bachelors degree in English/drama and speech and a Master of Arts, as well as a doctorate in educational administration.

Charles Thompson, top employee for October, has been with the county for 14 years and is currently a maintenance technician for Utilities Department. His duties include plant and lift station maintenance, both mechanical and electrical, plumbing, carpentry and special projects. Recently, Thompson spearheaded the repairs on the Sugarmill Woods Wastewater Treatment Plant Aerator No. 3. This piece of equipment is vital to the treatment process and to maintain compliance with DEP. The contractor had quoted cost of repairs in excess of $80,000. By doing a majority of the work in-house, the county was able to save nearly $60,000 on this repair alone. The savings was due to Thompsons skill set and knowledge of his trade. Pictured, from left, are: commissioners John JJ Kenney, Dennis Damato and Rebecca Bays; Charles Thompson; and commissioners Scott Adams and Joe Meek.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER10, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Two who came to my mind were Isaac Asimov and P.G. Wodehouse (although it seems that many have outwritten P.G.W.). But as Asimov said, If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldnt brood. Id type a little faster. His keyword for this deal is six. South is in six spades. West leads the diamond ace. How should declarer proceed after ruffing? This week, we are looking at six deals from one of my classes about handling the trump suit correctly. This is the hardest, in my opinion unless you have seen the theme before. In the auction, Norths rebid is a double negative, showing a really bad hand. In the old days, pairs used two no-trump; now, three clubs is popular. Each has pluses and minuses. Over three spades, it is reasonable for South to bid six spades, hoping that he will not have two heart losers. If North has three hearts, maybe the suit will break 3-3; and if he has a doubleton, there is a chance for a ruff or two on the board. Some of my students immediately cashed their two top hearts, then ruffed a heart with the spade nine. That would have been correct in seven spades, but here it cost the small slam. East overruffed and returned a trump, leaving South with a heart loser. The careful declarers ruffed the third heart with dummys spade jack. Then they returned to hand and ruffed their last heart. It did not matter that East overruffed, because South had the rest.

PG-13MotherMotherRules Dear Annie: Ive been employed for two months at a large retail outlet and have gotten to know many of the people who work there. Amanda is in the food section, and I am in the clothing department. Im a straight woman, and she is bisexual. Two weeks ago, the two of us went out to dinner for her birthday. Since then, I have developed strong feelings for her. I asked Amanda to dinner the other night, and she turned me down, saying she had plans. Yesterday, another co-worker told me she saw Amanda having lunch with a woman who works in the automotive section. The co-worker said the two of them were very touchy. This made me really jealous and sad. Should I tell Amanda I have feelings for her? If so, how do I do that? Confused and Maybe in Love Dear Confused: There are different types of jealousy. Amanda seems to be a popular girl. If you consider yourself to be straight, you should examine whether your jealousy is romantic in nature or whether its the type that female friends develop when one of them picks a different best friend. If you want a romantic relationship, let Amanda know by asking her again to lunch, dinner, a movie or other entertainment outside of work. If she is repeatedly busy, it means she is not interested. Dear Annie: Seven years ago, my closest cousin died. His wife wanted me to have his wardrobe, which included a tuxedo. This cousins daughter is going to be married soon, and the wedding is black tie. Would it be proper to wear that tux? I dont intend to broadcast the fact that it belonged to her late father, but it seems wearing it would allow a part of him to watch his only child marry. What do you think? Dressed-Up Cousin Dear Cousin: We think its a lovely idea. No one will know that you are wearing this particular tuxedo, except perhaps your cousins widow. If she mentions it, please tell her what you told us that you thought it would allow a small part of him to be there in spirit. We hope she will find it as touching as we do. Dear Annie: I hope its not too late to comment on the letter from Cant Believe Adults Act This Way, whose daughter, a teacher, was being bullied by her co-workers. This happened to me when I was younger. One day, one member of that group gave me some advice. She said, Play dumb and pretend you dont know they are talking about you. Always be pleasant, say hello and good morning to everyone, even when they do not respond. Join them in the lounge. Make a pleasant general comment, and then turn to your magazine or whatever you have to do. Always have something to occupy your time. If you have to ask anyone a question about work, ask it in the lounge in the presence of everyone. If they make a nasty comment, just brush it off and pretend that you didnt realize it was nasty. When you really need a breather, occasionally go off on your own, but dont make it obvious. And I also made it a point to look fabulous every day. This may not appeal to everyone in such a position, but it worked for me. It was terribly hard for the first few months, and then it became a routine. Eventually, the ringleader asked me where I was when I didnt come into the lounge the day before. After that, I was completely accepted by the group. I have lived by that rule ever since and have passed it on to my children. One cannot fight with someone who will not fight. You keep your dignity and, above all, gain their respect. It works in school, at the workplace and even with your own family. Yvonne from MontrealAnnies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
