At Tuesdays meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), Commissioner Scott Adams questioned the countys interlocal agreement with Hernando County for emergency landfill use. The Ethics Commission is there for elected officials, Adams stated, opening a discussion about the county landfill, one of the four discussions he requested to be conducted during the meeting. At any time you need to call them, theyre there for you to make sure youre not doing wrong. They made it clear, something that I already knew and a lot of people didnt, or were using it as political issues, but its cleared up, I think. There were some issues we were talking about on how we could save money, or something, versus what we did several weeks ago at $54 a ton and we did it based on a scenario at that time. Apparently, we didnt know we could do other things. The board on Nov. 19 approved an interlocal agreement with Hernando County to transfer garbage if a declared emergency temporarily shuts down either countys landfill. Adams has said the proposed tipping fees for Hernando County are excessive and the service should go out to bid. He has questioned why Marion County was not included in an interlocal agreement. County Administrator Brad Thorpe and acting County Attorney Kerry Parsons gave the opinion that Adams would have a potential ethical conflict with a Marion County arrangement because Adams is one of the owners of the Heart of Florida landfill in Lake Panasoffkee where Marion County hauls its waste. However, the following week, Nov. 25, a Florida Commission on Ethics attorney stated Adams would have no ethics violation if Adams revisits trash hauling agreement Scott Adamsthinks the county can save money. Brad Thorpeasked for guidance from commission.

The selected option is expected to be completed in 2074, capping more than a century of activity on the site. About 275 employees remain at the plant members of the facilitys decommissioning transition organization in addition to security personnel. Additional contract workers will be brought in as needed. Throughout the decommissioning process, plant management and staffing levels will adjust to reflect the transition.Decommissioning costThe estimated decommissioning cost is $1.18 billion in current dollars. The company believes its existing nuclear decommissioning trust fund, plus the funds future growth coupled withfunds from the plants nine other owners will be sufficient to cover the decommissioning cost. Duke is responsible for about 98 percent of costs. Analysis of estimated decommissioning cash flows indicates, at this time, no additional charges will be required from Florida customers to supplement the trust fund. However, annual analysis will be required The plan includes a decommissioning description, cost estimate and schedule. It also includes a management strategy for storing used nuclear fuel. The company expects to implement tasks outlined in the decommissioning plan starting in 2014. It has also submitted the plan to the Florida Public Service Commission. Duke Energy has selected the SAFSTOR decommissioning option one of three options approved by the NRC and one chosen by several other retired U.S. nuclear plants. Under this option, the plant will be placed in a safe, stable condition for 60 years until decommissioning work is completed in 2074. Nationwide, several commercial power reactor operators have conducted decommissioning, with the plants currently in SAFSTOR condition. Duke spokeswoman Heather Danenhower said radiological and environmental monitoring will continue during the entire decommissioning process to ensure safety and environmental protection. The plants used nuclear fuel will remain in the existing on-site fuel pool until a new onsite drycask storage facility is built, which is anticipated in 2019. She said the schedule for decommissioning activities uses the 60 years allowed by NRC regulation. The unit will be safely and cost-effectively placed into its SAFSTOR condition by July 2015, she said. The unit will $1.18B for plant shutdown MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleManagers from Duke Energys Crystal River area nuclear plant have recently submitted their decommissioning plan to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. They now await approval to begin the process of shutting down the complex. Duke lays out plan for decommissioning; company doesnt envision tapping customers to provide additional funds PATFAHERTY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER To increase awareness and understanding of the Crystal River nuclear plant decommissioning plan, Duke Energy has scheduled a public open house. It will be from 2:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, in the Magnolia Room at the Plantation on Crystal River, 9301 W. Fort Island Trail, Crystal River. Subject-matter experts will be available to meet with residents, hear concerns and answer questions about the nuclear plant decommissioning plan. Light refreshments will be served. Duke has also launched a decommissioning website for the plant, known as CR3, at www. duke-energy.com/ CR3 to serve as an information resource for the public.

But this time Congress is pursuing a permanent fix to the annual drama that has undermined the medical professions confidence in the nations premier health program. A fundamental change in the budget equation has handed lawmakers a rare opportunity to repeal Medicares broken physician payment policy, while also freeing them from having to waive billions of dollars in impending cuts every year. Slowing health care inflation has slashed the cost of repealing the old formula, bringing it down to $116.5 billion over 10 years, according to the latest estimates. Democrats and Republicans on both sides of the Capitol plan to push ahead this week with a framework for a new payment policy. Although a final fix will have to wait for next year, the new approach would set up financial carrots and sticks for doctors to provide quality, cost-effective care to more than 50 million elderly and disabled Medicare recipients. Up to 10 percent of an individual physicians pay could eventually be linked to the doctors performance on quality indicators.

Hersheys truck stolen in VolusiaDELAND The search is on for a truck stolen in Volusia county that was carrying $120,000 worth of Hersheys chocolate. A sheriffs office incident report said the trucks driver, Kenneth Szorosy, told the responding deputy on Sunday that he had parked it for the night at a truck center in DeLand. Szorsy said the truck was filled with an estimated $120,000 in a variety of Hersheys chocolate. He told the deputy he did not know who may have stolen the truck. The report said the deputy canvassed the area but didnt find the truck. The sheriffs office said Tuesday the investigation continued. The truck belongs to Sunstate Carriers, a refrigerated truckload carrier based in Tavares.Scott supports chief of staffGov. Rick Scott on Tuesday expressed support for his chief of staff, Adam Hollingsworth, after newspaper reports that Hollingsworth falsely told a former employer he had a college degree. Hollingsworth did not earn the degree until later. Im just glad that Adam has a college degree, Im proud of him for doing that, Scott said. Hes admitted hes made a mistake. Hes doing a great job. Hes a great friend. When asked about whether Hollingsworth would survive the controversy, Scott replied, He has a college degree, hes doing a great job, hes a good friend, and hes going to continue to do a good job. The controversy began this weekend after the Times/ Herald Tallahassee bureau reported that Hollingsworth during the mid-1990s told a former employer, CSX Corp., he had a bachelors degree from the University of Alabama. He received the degree in 2009. He issued a statement to the Times/Herald on Friday apologizing for what he described as a failure in judgment.Satanists want holiday displaySatanists are among those now seeking to share holiday space in the first floor of the Florida Capitol with a Christian nativity scene. The state Department of Management Services received three more applications to put up displays after approving a banner for the Freedom From Religion Foundation and an aluminum pole made of empty beer cans to mark the parody festival Festivus. Ben Wolf, a spokesman for the department, said the three latest applications remain under review. The applications are a reaction to the nativity scene depicting the birth of Jesus Christ that was put up last week by the Florida Prayer Network. South Florida political blogger Chaz Stevens, who wants to make a point about the need for a separation between church and state, applied for the Festivus pole, which is expected to be installed Wednesday morning. The Tallahassee Atheists have requested a 4-foot-by-5foot sign that says Happy Holidays and There are many reasons for the season, celebrate the one that you choose. Meanwhile, the Satanic Temple has requested space for a 5-foot-by-5-foot poster. However, it remains unclear what the group intends to display. The application says religious symbols and images that adhere to community standards. The temple is also asking Oklahoma lawmakers to allow it to build a monument at the state Capitol in Oklahoma City. A monument to the Ten Commandments already sits outside the government building. from the local public meeting that United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission will have to discuss the decommissioning plan and oversight process. Duke spokeswoman Heather Danenhower explained that submitting the Post-Shutdown Decommissioning Activities Report (PSDAR) triggers three activities: 1. Within 60 days following the submittal, the NRC will have a public meeting to discuss the decommissioning plan and oversight process. 2. Ninety days after the submittal, CR3 may begin major decommissioning activities. 3. Also 90 days after the submittal, CR3 may access 100 percent of the decommissioning fund. The PSDAR includes a description of the planned decommissioning activities, a schedule to complete those activities, a site-specific decommissioning cost estimate and a discussion of environmental impacts. The report was submitted Dec. 2 NRC spokesperson Neil Sheehan said NRC staff members plan to have a public meeting near the plant in midJanuary to receive comments on the newly submitted report. Comments may also be submitted in writing. The staff will then continue with its review of the submittal. The NRC will conduct inspections of the facility throughout the decommissioning process, with special focus on those times when significant work such as the removal of major components and the transfer of spent fuel into dry cask storage units is taking place.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com.A2WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE/LOCAL 000GUV7 KUMON MATH & READING CENTERS Call Today 726-9694 3380 E.

NAACP officials said Tuesday the allegations include an employee at the 207 Quickstop, Earl Sampson, who was arrested 62 times for trespassing even though he was often still on the job. Numerous patrons of the store a short distance from Sun Life Stadium where the Miami Dolphins play have been harassed, intimidated and arrested on equally questionable grounds, according to the NAACP Adora Obi Nweze, president of the NAACP Florida State Conference, said a Miami Gardens zero tolerance policy aimed at fighting crime appears to have gone way too far. The problem is that in order to address the criminal element, youve got to be sure that the rights of those who are not a part of the criminal element are not being violated at the same time, Nweze told reporters. The NAACP letter, dated Tuesday, asks Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate whether there is a pattern and practice of intimidation by the Miami Gardens police force, which currently numbers about 200 sworn officers in a city of more than 110,000 people. A Justice Department spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Miami Gardens city and police officials also did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment. Miami Gardens is a predominantly African-American city along Miami-Dade Countys northern border with Broward County. The owner of 207 Quickstop, Alex Saleh, and others have also filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city, its officials and several individual police officers. According to the lawsuit, Saleh signed up a few years ago for the citys zero tolerance program that gives officers broad powers to act on store property such as arresting trespassers, cracking down on alcohol drinking and doing stop-and-frisks and so forth. After the harassment problems began, Saleh asked to stop participating, but the officers continued their actions. Eventually Saleh installed about $7,000 worth of video equipment to document police actions, producing 27 videotapes that are at the heart of the NAACP complaint and the lawsuit. Weve seen this kind of pattern throughout the state from time to time over many, many years, said David Honig, special counsel to the Florida NAACP. Candidly, not documented by videotape and to this extent, ever. This is just unique. The NAACP letter asks that federal investigators determine if any crimes have been committed and prosecute those responsible, as well as make sure the proper policies and procedures are being followed by the Miami Gardens police.

Port authority settles lawsuit CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS A residents unpaid legal bill from 2009 reared its head on Tuesday when members of the Citrus County Port Authority unanimously agreed to pay the attorneys fees in an unrelated complaint. The port authority board was prepared to pay the sum of $44,000 to attorney Jonathan D. Kaney Jr., who represented Bob Schweickert Jr. in a lawsuit contesting the selection process for the port feasibility studys consultant. The complaint was legally cured last year when port authority board members repeated the selection process with publicly announced vote counts. The payment of plaintiff Schweickerts attorneys fees would settle the case. However, Kristin Y. Melton, an attorney with the Tampa law firm of de la Parte & Gilbert, representing Citrus Mining and Timber, a company owned by Dixie Hollins, asked the board to make the payment to Schweickert rather than his attorney, Kaney. The reason were concerned about this is because, as you may know, there is a pending bankruptcy proceeding against Mr. Schweickert, Melton said. Therefore, any payments that are obtained by him, such as attorneys fees under settlement agreements, should be going toward the bankruptcy court, which will allocate the sums accordingly in line of his creditors. Melton put forward the responsibility of following bankruptcy court proceedings. What were concerned with here is we dont want there to be any appearance that the port or the county is trying to circumvent any of the proceedings by the bankruptcy court under this situation because the sums are being paid directly to Mr. Schweickerts legal counsel, Melton said, thereby essentially avoiding going to the bankruptcy court and being allocated accordingly. In a previous legal action, Inverness resident Schweickert sought to overturn the countys 2009 comprehensive plan change to create an industrial, residential and commercial district on the former Cross Florida Barge Canal. It is not affiliated with Port Citrus. A state administrative judge ruled against Schweickert, saying he had no standing. When Schweickert appealed the decision, Hollins joined the lawsuit by intervention. When Schweickerts appeal failed, Hollins attorneys were awarded their fees to be paid by Schweickert, which he has said he cant afford to do. Port Authority Attorney Kerry Parsons said she had done due diligence and the board should go ahead with settling the case with the payment to Kaney, who was entitled to it. Parsons said she had been unable to find any documentation regarding the bankruptcy court. Nor have I received a court order precluding us from writing a check to the plaintiffs attorney, Parsons said. Before the board agreed unanimously to the payment, board member Scott Adams directed remarks to Hollins. If youve got a beef with somebody, I dont want this county acting as an arm of you, Mr. Hollins, Adams said.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer@chronicle online.com. Last-minute claim on fees spurned Landmark diner thrives on 1950s Restaurant originally known for ice creamPATFAHERTY Staff writerWhen it comes to her business, Sabina Hugel has a simple philosophy: I want to express myself with the food, I like to cook, I like to create different things. Sabinas Diner is a Hernando landmark thats evolved and succeeded with consistent customer support. Patrons have embraced the s theme, which starts with the roadside sign and carries through the interior dcor to a soundtrack of music from that era. Everybody knows the sign and there is no better music than the s, she said. I really like it. We have Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, everythings about oldies. Its always s here, agreed her daughter Regine. They like it. Were kind of a family place. While Sabinas is Hugels first restaurant, it wasnt her first food business. She started out selling hot dogs from a cart on street corners in Miami, a single mom with two toddlers who was also trying to bring her own mother and siblings to America from Peru. A lifestyle change brought her to Citrus County and she attended the culinary arts program at Withlacoochee Technical Institute. She ended up getting a job at a coffee shop and eventually bought the business. That was in the early s, and the diner has evolved over the years. It was initially known for ice cream. I wanted to get away from ice cream and have the diner known for its food, she said. So I developed my own menu. At first it was handwritten, photocopied and decorated with drawings by a customer. Over the years it became more professional and the variety increased as she experimented, listened to customers and added more variety. And she still carries eight flavors of ice cream. Breakfast, especially omelets, proved to be a local favorite, as have the Benedicts. She said the trick to a great omelet is not making them in a skillet, but on the grill using fresh vegetables. She has evolved special techniques for fresh-made burgers, pressed Cuban sandwiches, Reuben sandwiches, gyros and soups. But her customer favorite remains the home fries grilled with onions. As her daughters became older, they took over the front end and she spends more time in the kitchen. Several large photos on the wall depict what she recalls as her last day as a waitress, before becoming a full-time cook. Regine still works there, in addition to going to school, while her other daughter Martine has moved on to a career in nursing. Other than closing in the patio and adding WiFi, the diner has not changed much. I have been here for so long the only one around here who has survived, she said, thanks to my customers and their ideas. Even though its a small diner, Im very proud of it, she said. Its provided my daughters education. She opened Hernando Hideaway Sports Bar in 2012. She said its called the Hideaway because its tucked nearly out of sight behind the diner, but regulars refer to it as Sabinas Bar. Often after a day at the diner, she heads over to cook at the bar.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com.

MTVU said Tuesday that both figures challenged their followers with unexpected stands. Since becoming pope, Francis has urged the Catholic Church not to become obsessed with small-minded rules and to emphasize compassion over condemnation in dealing with touchy topics like abortion, gays and contraception. The New Zealand teenager Lorde released a debut single, Royals, that puts down a culture of conspicuous consumption, and distributed it first for free.Portrait of Austen fetches $270,000LONDON A portrait of Pride and Prejudice author Jane Austen that is soon to adorn British banknotes has sold for $270,230 at a London auction. The watercolor by James Andrews was commissioned by Austens nephew in 1869. It was sold by the Austen family and, according to Sothebys auction house, has rarely been seen in public. The portrait is considered a definitive image of Austen, chronicler of English country life 200 years ago. She died in 1817, at 41. An engraving of it will appear on Englands 10-pound notes by 2017. Sothebys said Tuesday that the watercolor was sold over the phone to an anonymous private collector.Andrews missed live Sound of MusicBURBANK, Calif. More than 18 million television viewers watched Carrie Underwood perform the role of Maria last week in NBCs The Sound of Music Live! But Julie Andrews wasnt among them. Andrews, who starred in the 1965 Oscar-winning film adaptation of the Rodgers & Hammerstein classic, explained, Alas, I did not (see it). I had a speaking engagement and I couldnt. But my kids did record it. Ill get around to it. She attended the U.S. premiere Monday night of Saving Mr. Banks, which depicts the battle between P.L. Travers, author of the Mary Poppins novels, and Walt Disney, who worked for decades to persuade the writer that the Poppins tales would make a fine film. Saving Mr. Banks picks up the story in 1961, when the London-based Travers finally agreed to a two-week visit to Los Angeles to meet with Disney and his creative team. Before signing over the film rights, Travers wanted to see Disneys treatment of her source material, and quickly proved a brutal critic and difficult collaborator shredding key decisions about the film adaptation, including casting. The Disney-Travers battle was concluded before Andrews was deep into production.Mike Tyson scraps UK appearancesLONDON Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson has scrapped promotional appearances in London because previous convictions bar him from entering Britain. Tyson, 47, was due in London this week as part of a promotional tour for his autobiography Undisputed Truth. His publisher, HarperCollins U.K., said in a statement Tuesday that it had been unaware of recent changes to U.K. immigration law and for that reason Tyson had to reroute to Paris. Under Britains immigration rules, anyone sentenced to more than four years in prison is barred from entering the country.

remain in that state, called dormancy, until the large component removal activities begin in 2068. The NRC will terminate the 10CFR50 license in 2073, and the site restoration activities will be completed in 2074. The construction permit for the plant was issued in 1968. It received its operating license and went into operation in 1977. Final reactor shutdown was in September 2009 and Duke announced the plants retirement last February. In March, the NRC acknowledged permanent shutdown of the power operation and permanent removal of fuel from the reactor vessel. Duke Energy Crystal River decommissioning director Terry Hobbs said all U.S. nuclear plants store used fuel on site, because the U.S. does not have a central federal repository for used nuclear fuel. Decommissioning the Crystal River nuclear plant will be a welldefined process with significant NRC oversight, said Hobbs. Nuclear safety will remain Duke Energys top priority. The plant will remain in a safe, stable condition, and our comprehensive emergency plan and 24/7 security force will remain in place. Workforce needsAs for workers, he said the same skill sets apply now and in the future as when the plant was operational. We still have plant staff there 24/7 and will for the remainder of this decade at a minimum. The plant takes up about 27 acres at the energy complex. Radiological and environmental programs will be maintained throughout the decommissioning process to ensure safety and environmental compliance. According to the Post-Shutdown Decommissioning Activities Report (PSDAR) filed with the NRC, the likelihood of a large offsite radiological release that impacts public health and safety after the nuclear plant is shut down and defueled is considerably lower than the likelihood of a release from the plant during power operation. The potential radiation exposure to workers will also decrease significantly. Subsequently, simplifying the emergency plan is one of the changes Hobbs expects as the process forward. He said that and other changes become a challenging part of the decommissioning process because of the elongated timelines. Phyllis Dixon, decommissioning support director, who has visited another nuclear plant already in safe storage, explained a shift in the industry in the late s took the national focus off of decommissioning. Now Duke is working with the NRC, the Nuclear Energy Institute and other utilities to catch up and come up with guidance for a current approach.

The plan would repeal the centerpiece of the old payment formula, a 1990s budget provision that mandates automatic cuts to doctors to limit Medicare spending. It became a symbol of government dysfunction after Congress got into the habit of regularly issuing temporary reprieves. Otherwise doctors might stop accepting Medicare patients. But restoring payments to doctors each year didnt solve the problem, because the law remained on the books. A reduction of nearly 24 percent next year is called for unless Congress acts. Experts said the old payment formula needs to go not just because its ineffective, but also because it encourages a costly, piecemeal approach to health care. Doctors bill for as many services as they can to maximize Medicare reimbursement, but theres no consistent focus on keeping patients as healthy as possible. Payments to doctors account for 10 percent of Medicare spending, about $60 billion a year. Other outpatient providers are also paid under the same system. Not many years ago, the 10-year cost of repealing the old formula was headed into the $300 billion range. Now that number has declined to a point where a comprehensive fix looks cheaper than continuing to pony up billions for short-term waivers. These annual patches are adding up to a lot more than if we do it in one fell swoop, said David Certner, legislative policy director for AARP. That obviously gives more momentum to make these changes. The seniors lobby favors getting rid of the old payment formula, since the constant threat of automatic cuts creates instability for Medicare. But AARP the American Medical Association, and other major interest groups are reserving judgment until they see the final details. On Thursday the Senate Finance Committee is expected to vote on a broad bipartisan framework to begin revamping doctors pay. Enough with the quick fixes, said chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont. The House Ways and Means Committee is on a parallel course. Physicians and seniors alike, for over a decade, have been hamstrung by short-term patches instead of the certainty of a permanent solution, said chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich. But the deal is far from done. Since Congress doesnt have enough time to resolve something this complicated before the holidays, lawmakers will need to approve a temporary patch to get them through the first few months of 2014. Then comes the hard part. Doctors want a raise, not just a freeze of current rates. That would cost money. But the biggest cost barrier has to do with the broken payment formula itself. In one of those bewildering twists of federal budgeting, projected savings from the formulas often-waived cuts are counted as if they were real, and have to be offset with actual spending reductions or tax increases. Finding mutually acceptable offsets is a huge challenge for Camp and Baucus. Details are unlikely to emerge this week. Fixing the fee schedule comes at a cost and the question is how Congress will cover these costs, said Tricia Neuman, an expert on Medicare with the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. Some have suggested tapping projected savings from winding down the war in Afghanistan. Fiscal conservatives scoff that thats an accounting gimmick. Another option would be to assemble financing from about $400 billion in Medicare cuts already proposed by President Barack Obama. Congressional Republicans have made many of the same proposals themselves. However, that list includes a gradual increase in Medicare premiums for upper-income beneficiaries and many in the middle class, a nonstarter for AARP Even Obama said he wont go for Medicare cuts without higher taxes on the wealthy, unacceptable to Republicans. Whats different this year, said Neuman, is that there seems to be agreement on a general strategy for replacing the old Medicare payment formula. Whats similar to previous years is the struggle to identify ways to pay for it, she added.NATION/LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER11, 2013 A5 THERES RETIREMENT.

Associated PressSALT LAKE CITY An avalanche that was caught on video dragged a backcountry skier into a Utah ravine and buried her in snow, but the woman survived because she deployed a special air bag and other skiers were able to quickly dig her out, witnesses said Tuesday. Joe Campanelli was using his iPhone to record the sun-splayed Wasatch mountains Monday when the skier descended into a steep gully filled with loose snow in Grizzly Gulch, a short distance from the Alta ski area east of Salt Lake City. That is not a good slope to ski, Campanelli said while recording. Moments later, the slope breaks and he said, Youre in a slide, bud! Campanelli abruptly stopped recording to help rescue the skier. His friend, Aaron Rice, told The Associated Press he used an avalanche beacon and a probe to find her location, then shoveled her out with help from others. She was buried in several feet of snow. She was breathing, talking, Rice said Tuesday. She said, Thank you. I cant believe you got here so quickly. She was completely shaken up. The woman was swept about 100 feet down the gully at an angle approaching 40 degrees, according to a report on the Utah Avalanche Centers website. It happened in an area where ski patrol members dont do any avalanche control work, such as triggering slides before they can occur naturally and hurt someone. It was the first time this season that a person was rescued from an avalanche in Utah, and the woman is lucky to be alive and uninjured, said Bruce Tremper, director of the Utah Avalanche Center. He said Utah averages about four avalanche fatalities a year. The skiers descent into the gully was so steep and short that her air bag had little time to work at keeping her above the roiling snow. Still, it might have kept her from getting buried longer, and under much deeper snow, officials said. The woman pulled a ripcord on an air bagequipped backpack a European-style safety device that is becoming more common in the Rocky Mountain backcountry. Perkins Gaillard Jr., 78DUNNELLONPerkins G.

Death ELSEWHERE From wire reports European probe on course for a landing on a comet Associated PressBERLIN Its been likened to a parachutist trying to land on a mountaintop. Or a person attempting to leap from one speeding car to another. The European Space Agency is planning to land an unmanned spacecraft on a comet next year in an unprecedented and exquisitely tricky mission that has been underway for almost a decade and is about to enter a critical new phase. The agency announced Tuesday that its Rosetta probe, which has been journeying through space since its launch in 2004, will be awakened from hibernation next month and will aim to drop a lander onto the icy surface of comet 67P/ChuryumovGerasimenko on Nov. 11, 2014. The plan is different from NASAs Deep Impact mission, which used a probe to fire a projectile into a comet in 2005 and create a plume of matter for scientists to study. That was just a drive-by compared with the rendezvous the Europeans are planning. Scientists hope that by flying Rosetta alongside the comet and sending down a barrel-size lander to collect and analyze samples, they will get an even better idea of what comets are made of and what role they played in the formation of our solar system. Nobody has ever done this before, said Paolo Ferri, head of mission operations at the European Space Agency. Ferri noted that while NASA managed to land a probe on an asteroid in 2001, comets are much more volatile places because they constantly release dust and gas that can harm a spacecraft. A comet is essentially a dirty snowball; an asteroid is a rock. To catch 67P as it orbits the sun at up to 62,000 mph, Rosetta has made several flybys of Earth, Mars and the sun, using their gravity to accelerate. Once the spacecraft picked up sufficient speed and was on course to rendezvous with the comet, ESA put Rosetta into hibernation for more than two years to conserve energy. This also gave engineers the time to find workarounds for two glitches that threatened the mission: a problem with two of the four reaction wheels used to turn the spacecraft, and a small helium leak that could affect the thrusters vital for its final maneuvers. For now, scientists have a tense wait to see whether the probe wakes up as planned when its alarm clock goes off at 5 a.m. on Jan. 20. The spacecraft will be about 500 million miles from Earth at the time, and signals will take 45 minutes to travel each way. If all goes according to plan, Rosetta will begin searching for 67P a lump of rock and ice about 2.5 miles in diameter that is invisible to the naked eye. By November, Rosetta will have drawn up alongside the comet and found a suitable place for the lander, called Philae. The cylindrical lander which is roughly the size of a chemical drum, at 3.3 feet by 2.6 feet will gently glide down to the surface and latch onto the comet with a harpoon, to prevent it from drifting off into space because of the icy lumps weak gravity. Using drills, Philae will dig up samples and analyze them with its on-board instruments. Researchers hope to gain fascinating insights, because comets have remained largely unchanged since our solar system formed. Associated PressAn artists drawing represents the Rosetta orbiter deploying the Philae lander to comet 67P/Churyumov Gerasimenko. The European Space Agency has set a tentative date for the first landing of a spacecraft on a comet. ESA said the Rosetta probe will wake up from hibernation Jan. 20 before chasing down comet 67P/ChuryumovGerasimenko. If all goes according to plan, Rosetta will launch a lander onto the surface of the comet on Nov. 11, 2014. Backcountry skier survives avalanche in Utah gully

I would like direction from the board on the regionalization issue of solid waste for Citrus County. Thorpe said he and Commissioner Dennis Damato had met with Adams business partner, Charlie Dean Jr., to discuss regionalization, where several counties use one central landfill. Thorpe said he had been in touch with a consultant and an attorney to discuss the countys long-term landfill options. Operational issues, such as mandatory collection, would need to be addressed, Thorpe said. Currently, Citrus County allows residents to selfhaul waste to the landfill and offers a comprehensive recycling program. The county also does not franchise waste haulers, meaning several wastehauling companies can operate on the same roads. Damato put forth a motion to direct Thorpe to look at long-term solid waste options, but Thorpe was concerned about Adams role in the process. I cant make a rational decision debating a commissioner thats in the business with me, Thorpe said. Parsons had further questions about Adams role on the board if the county were to have a contract with his company, such as whether Adams would have to step down during approval of the consent agenda because payments would be agreed to. If we were to do this process, I would hopefully work with the commissioner to get something formally in writing to go through every scenario, Parsons said. Adams left the dais for the vote on the motion to instruct Thorpe. Meek said he would not support the motion as it had no backup and he wanted to do his own research first. Damato withdrew the motion and put forward another directing Thorpe to put the issue on a future agenda. All four commissioners voted in favor and Adams returned to the chamber. Adams also opened discussions about Duke Energy, County Road 491 widening and the decision by the ethics commission. Adams maintained he was still against the continuing litigation against Duke, although Parsons read into the record a statement from County Property Appraiser Geoffrey Greene asking the board to be aware that discussion could be detrimental to the mediation process. Greene was sued by the utility regarding his assessment of its local holdings. The county is not a party to the lawsuit. On the subject of County Road 491, the board agreed to give Thorpe direction to set up a public workshop regarding scope of work and costs. Not one of the commissioners wanted to discuss the ethics subject again. Commission Chairman John JJ Kenny declared it a dead issue. Kenney announced his Chairmans Agenda that sets out particular goals to be reached during that commissioners term as chairman. First, Kenney asked Commissioner Joe Meek, last years chairman, if he would like to see any items on his agenda continued. Meek responded that he would like to see the board continue to build relationships with the governments of the two cities, Inverness and Crystal River, and continue making economic development a priority. Kenney said he will work on building a new animal shelter. He also wants to get the public more involved in the countys work by conducting more workshops and adding information to the countys website. Kenney said he wants to start the budget process early again this year. Priorities will include road resurfacing and the springs initiative. The board agreed by a 4-1 vote, with Adams voting against, to use the uniform method to levy, collect and enforce next years non-ad valorem special assessments to provide fire protection services and facilities, storm water services and facilities and roadway maintenance, improvements and services. Parsons said the ordinance was a placeholder to allow the board to set up municipal services benefit units to fund road paving and would not impose fees without going through the public hearing process.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER11, 2013 A7 www.smcflorida.com Other Services Include: Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Carpet Protector Pet Odor Removal Spot Removal Deep Soil Extraction Drapery Cleaning Oriental Rugs EMERGENCY SERVICE 24/7/365 Our Holiday Gift For You. 000GOT1 The CLEAN you expect, The SERVICE you deserve.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Young American women are increasingly likely to receive pay nearly equal to their male counterparts, with earnings at 93 percent of men, a new study finds. Still, those women remain as pessimistic as their mothers and grandmothers regarding gender equality. A report for release Wednesday by the Pew Research Center paints a mixed picture. While women under 32 now have higher rates of college completion than men that age, the analysis of census and labor data shows their hourly earnings will slip further behind by the womens mid-30s, if the experience of the past three decades is a guide. That widening gap is due in part to the many women who take time off or reduce their hours to start families. Other factors cited in the report are gender stereotyping, discrimination, weaker professional networks and womens hesitancy to aggressively push for raises and promotions, which together may account for 20 to 40 percent of the pay gap. In all, 75 percent of women ages 18-32 say the U.S. needs to do more to bring about equality in the workplace, a percentage similar to baby boomer women ages 49-67 and higher than other age groups. Some 57 percent of young men answered that way. Even so, just 15 percent of young women say they have been discriminated against because of their gender. Todays generation of young women is entering the labor force near parity with men in terms of earnings and extremely well prepared in terms of their educational attainment, said Kim Parker, associate director with the Pew Social & Demographic Trends Project. They feel empowered in many ways, yet when they look at the workplace, they see it as a mans world with the deck stacked against them. They think that men earn more than women for doing the same job and that its easier for men to get top executive jobs than it is for women, she said. Women are increasingly moving into higher career positions both in government and business. They make up nearly half the workforce, and the share of women in managerial and administrative occupations is nearly equal to that of men 15 percent compared to 17 percent. Another landmark came Tuesday, when General Motors picked Mary Barra, a 33-year company veteran, as the first female head of a major U.S. car company. Still, women currently hold just 4.5 percent of Fortune 1000 CEO positions, the Pew report said.A8WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION 000GVJT In-Home Computer Helpers Serving Citrus County and The Villages Offering In-Home computer learning sessions/virus removal and smart phone assistance.

Expires 1/13/14 Key findings on the gender pay gap and attitudes toward workplace equality, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center: About 75 percent of women ages 18-32 say the U.S. needs to do more to bring a bout equality in the workplace, compared to 57 percent of young men. Among workers ages 25 to 34, womens hourly earnings were 93 percent those of men. That ratio is up from 67 percent in 1980 and at the highest in government records dating back to at least 1979. Across all age groups, the median hourly wage for women was 84 percent as much as men, up from 64 percent in 1980. About 59 percent of young women say that being a working parent makes it har der to advance in a job or career compared to just 19 percent of young men. Fewer younger women than young men aspire to become a boss or top mana ger 34 percent say theyre not interested vs. 24 percent of young men. About 60 percent of young women say if a man and a woman are doing the same work, the man g enerally earns more; only 48 percent of young men agree. Women with college degrees are far more likely to say its easier for men to get top e xecutive jobs in business and government, 71 percent compared to 50 percent of their male counterparts. Among women who dont have college degrees, only 47 percent thought men held an advantage. Just 15 percent of young women say they have been discriminated against because of their gender.

Interestrates 000GUA6 Stocks lower after hitting record Associated PressNEW YORK Stocks fell modestly Tuesday as investors took a breather from a market that notched yet another record high the day before. The market has hit several all-time highs in recent months, but with the holiday season and end of the year approaching many investors expect the market to be calm as 2013 winds down. Its quiet, and the only trading that will go on the rest of this year will be people selling for tax reasons and window dressing, said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer for BMO Private Bank, which manages $66 billion of assets. Its a common practice for portfolio managers, in the last couple weeks of the year, to close out positions, sell off poorperforming stocks and try to make portfolios look as good as they possibly can when they mail their year-end statements to investors. On Wall Street, the practice is sometimes called window dressing. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 52.40 points, or 0.3 percent, to 15,973.13. The Standard & Poors 500 index lost 5.75 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,802.62. The index hit an all-time high Monday. The Nasdaq composite lost 8.26 points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,060.49. Banking stocks were mostly higher after investors got some clarity on new regulations. Federal regulators voted to approve the Volcker Rule, which bars banks from betting on the market with their own money. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Securities and Exchange Commission and other federal agencies approved the rule, which will go into effect by July 2015 for the nations largest banks. Goldman Sachs increased $2.06, or 1.2 percent, to $169.73 and Morgan Stanley rose 38 cents, or 1.3 percent, to $30.77. The Volcker rule is part of the DoddFrank financial reform law passed in 2010 in the aftermath of the financial crisis. One of the few remaining events on the economic calendar this year is the Federal Reserves two-day policy meeting next week. The Fed is widely expected to scale back its stimulus program in the coming months, but few investors expect it will do it next week so close to the end of the year. Economists expect the Fed to start pulling back, or tapering, its economic stimulus in the first three months of 2014. No matter how you look at it, tapering is on its way, said Quincy Krosby, market strategist with Prudential Financial. Twitter jumped $2.85, or 6 percent, to $51.99 after the company announced a new service called tailored audiences, a platform will let advertisers focus on a specific group of people and target ads to them. In other corporate news, Lululemon Athleticas founder said he would relinquish the companys chairmanship after his comments about the body type of potential customers caused a backlash. The yoga apparel retailer fell $1.22, or 2 percent, to $69.12. General Motors named Mary Barra as its next CEO. She will replace Dan Akerson and will be the first woman to run a major U.S. car company. GM slipped 50 cents, or 1.2 percent, to $40.40. The U.S. government also said Tuesday that it had sold the last of its stake in the automaker, which it acquired following GMs 2009 bankruptcy and restructuring. BusinessHIGHLIGHTS Office Depot picks Boca Raton for HQBOCA RATON Office Depot has picked Boca Raton for its global headquarters, choosing that location over the Illinois home of its merger partner OfficeMax. Last month Office Depot Inc. and OfficeMax completed their $1.2 billion merger and took the name Office Depot. OfficeMax was based in Naperville, Ill., while Office Depots headquarters are in Boca Raton. In mid-November, Office Depot named Roland Smith as its new CEO and said he would help to decide where the combined company would be based. Smith said in a statement on Tuesday that after assessing its options the company determined that Boca Raton provided a way for it to drive better profitability and reach planned savings. Office Depot looked at a number of factors before making its decision, including the cost to run each headquarters location, lease obligations and sublease considerations, government incentives and tax implications. Office Depot will stay in its existing corporate campus in Boca Raton. The company said that there is ample space for employees that are moving from Illinois. While the transition and integration process occurs, Office Depot will keep a presence in Naperville. The company said that it is too early to estimate how many employees will relocate. The company has about 1,600 workers in Illinois and 1,700 in Boca Raton.GM names Mary Barra as CEODETROIT Mary Barra has spent the past three years as General Motors' product chief, making cars that drive better, last longer and look good in showrooms. Now she will take on an even bigger job. On Tuesday, the board named the 33-year company veteran CEO, making her the first woman to lead a U.S. car company. Barra replaces Dan Akerson, who moved up retirement plans by several months to help his wife, Karin, battle advanced cancer.US ban on high-risk trades approvedWASHINGTON U.S. regulators have taken a major step toward reining in high-risk trading on Wall Street, banning the largest banks from trading for their own profit in most cases. It took three years to write and adopt the Volcker Rule, one of the most critical changes to financial laws in the wake of the 2008 banking crisis. The Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency each voted Tuesday to adopt it.From wire reports Sources: FactSet; S&P Dow Jones Indices As of Dec. 2 2013* 11 $75.83 2012 13 58.73 2011 16 52.15 2010 9 50.86 2009 10 42.38 2008 9 31.36 2007 28 51.97 2006 37 50.15 2005 37 45.05 2004 39 43.45 2003 14 40.07 2002 21 31.48 2001 32 37.96 2000 83 43.12 The average price of S&P 500 stocks continues to climb but stock splits are declining. SELL BUY HOLD Fewer companies in the Standard & Poors 500 index are making split decisions. Instead they are letting their stocks carry bigger price tags. Only 11 companies have split their stock this year, among them, Colgate-Palmolive and Whole Foods. MasterCard announced plans to split Tuesday. A stock split is when a company increases the number of shares it has outstanding and accordingly lowers the price per share. The price change ensures that the companys market value remains the same. Stock splits typically happen when a companys board believes the share price has risen too high or is trading too far above the shares of similar companies. Although the stock market has climbed 166 percent since March 2009, the number of stock splits during that period has been consistently low and has declined since 2011. Howard Silverblatt, a senior index analyst at S&P Dow Jones Indices, says executives are increasingly comfortable with higher stock prices. He says several factors have kept splits at a minimum, including the reality that theyre expensive.Priceline.com (PCLN) $1,188.92 91.6% Google (GOOG) 1,084.66 53.3 MasterCard (MA) 763.61 56.0 Graham Holdings (GHC) 620.39 69.9 Apple (AAPL) 565.55 8.9 S&P 500 29.4 The five highest priced stocks in the S&P 500. are makin g split d ecisions.

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2013 No trust in surveyCan the results of the survey on trust that concludes Americans dont trust each other anymore be trusted (ChronicleDec. 1)? I dont think so. The questions in the survey were either poorly posed or designed to elicit a desired response. I believe most people would answer yes to the statement most people can be trusted. But the question was not asked alone or against the obvious alternative of most people cannot be trusted. Instead the alternative was a statement that you cant be too careful. Even if one thinks the vast majority of people can be trusted, one still needs to be careful to avoid being taken advantage of by the unscrupulous minority. So yes is a reasonable answer to both questions but not one that was an option in the survey. The experiences of Pennsylvania farmer Dennis Hess, who runs an unattended farm stand on the honor system, attest to the honesty of most people. My own life experiences have also shown that most people are trustworthy. Wouldnt it be depressing to go through life believing that most people you interact with cannot be trusted?Louis Pulgrano Citrus HillsMerry ChristmasAs we approach yet another Christmas, let us all be thankful for what we have and very importantly let us remember all the warriors who did not live to see all the Christmas seasons they should have. Merry Christmas from the staff at Sharkhunters.Harry CooperLove the headlineI enjoy the newspaper very much and think your coverage of our local events is very good. I have found your feature article headlines eye-catching and clever. Your best yet is Here There Be Dragons, that appeared on the front page, Nov. 17. Kudos to the author. Expecting news, on Dec. 1s cover is good, too. Dragons, however, made my day!Jeannine Love Lecanto In April, the Real Clear Politics average of polls showed that 47 percent of Americans opposed Obamacare, while 41 percent supported it a 6-percentagepoint edge for opponents of the presidents health care law, which at the time was still months away from implementation. The latest average of polls, less than two months into the laws rollout, shows 57 percent opposing Obamacare, with 38 percent supporting an enormous 19point gap between opponents and supporters. The two numbers explain why Republicans made little progress when they tried to warn Americans about Obamacare. For years, GOP warnings about Obamacare were about something that had not yet arrived. People had not experienced it, did not have friends who had experienced it and didnt fully understand what it was. Many tuned out the Republican alarms. Now that has changed. Millions of Americans are unhappy with what they have experienced under Obamacare canceled policies, higher premiums and sky-high deductibles. They are also much more likely to believe predictions of future problems. Theyve seen what has already happened and now know it can get worse. So how can it get worse? So far, Obamacare has upended the individual market for health insurance, which covers about 10 million people. The next step, according to the respected health care analyst Robert Laszewski, will likely come in the small-employer market, meaning businesses with anywhere between two and 50 employees. That covers about 45 million people. Obamacare is impacting the small-group insurance market in many of the same ways as the individual health insurance market, Laszewski writes. Under Obamacare, the small employers who offer their workers health coverage will be required to comply with the same essential benefit mandates, age rating changes, and pre-existing condition reforms the individual market faces. That means essentially all small-group policies cannot continue as they are they have to be discontinued. When the individual market began to roil, Obamacares defenders were quick to point out that it was a relatively small part about 5 percent of the total U.S. insurance market. The assurance was that everyone else would either be unaffected by Obamacare or benefit from the new law. It now looks like that will not be the case. In the small-group market, Laszewski predicts many employers will use a feature in the law that allows them to keep their current plans for about a year. But then: They will likely increase employee premiums and deductibles to keep the wolf from the door for maybe another year. And after that: They will hope for a rescue party. Not a particularly encouraging scenario for those 45 million people in the market. And that is why there is more and more talk about Obamacares winners and losers. It has become impossible to defend President Obamas promise that his health care scheme would make the system work better for everybody. Its also impossible to defend his claim that Obamacare would cut the average familys premium by about $2,500 per year. And now even Americans who receive health coverage through their jobs are growing worried that Obamas if-you-like-yourcoverage-you-can-keep-it promise, proven false for millions in the individual market, will prove just as false for them. So the unavoidable truth is that Obamacare will hurt millions of Americans; the only question is how many. And that has caused some observers to take new note of the laws basic structure. The redistribution of wealth has always been a central feature of the law, writes TheNew York Times John Harwood. Throughout the process, (the laws authors) knew that some level of redistributing wealth creating losers as well as winners was inescapable. The problem is, President Obama and his Democratic allies neglected to tell the public. And now, when the bad news about Obamacare piles up day after day, none of it sounds like what Obama promised. Its taking a toll on the presidents ratings. In a recent CNN survey, just 40 percent said they believe Obama can manage the government effectively. But much more importantly, it has entirely changed the way people view Obamacare. In the three and a half years between March 23, 2010, the day Obamacare was signed into law, and Oct. 1, 2013, the day its implementation got underway, millions of voters, no matter what doubts they might have had, thought it best to give Obamacare a chance to work. Thats why they didnt respond to the GOPs dire warnings. But now, theyve seen what Obamacare can mean in their lives. And they wont be buying any more promises.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

Recently, four Citrus County Sheriff Office (CCSO) deputies, whose years of service with the agency ranged from less than four years to 13 years, violated this special trust, resulting in the lost of their jobs. Three of the four deputies resigned rather than face termination for falsifying documents for off-duty work never performed. The surrendering of their integrity and the jeopardizing of their futures for the sake of some nominal, ill-gotten financial gain is certainly a sad commentary for these trusted public servants of the law. The fourth deputy was fired outright for gross misconduct related to his relationship with an 18-year-old woman, despite past warnings to refrain from contact with her. His unpardonable willingness to place his desires above moral character and personal trust certainly merited his termination. To its credit, the CCSOs leadership confronted the violation of trust by the four deputies rather than closing ranks or sweeping it under the rug like organizations often do to escape public embarrassment. By confronting the violation of trust by these four deputies, the CCSOs leadership has sent a strong message to both the members of the agency and the public it serves that any unprofessional conduct that breaches the public trust will not be tolerated. Although Sheriff Jeff Dawsy commented that the breach of trust by these four deputies was an embarrassment to his agency and the citizens it serves, the leaderships decisive action to hold them accountable and to adopt corrective action to assure professional standards are upheld strengthens public confidence in the agency. Since every human organization unfortunately has its bad apples, Sheriff Dawsy is correct in saying that he cant guarantee officer misconduct will never happen again. Nevertheless, the public should never let the disreputable actions of a few tarnish those who protect and serve our community 24/7 with professionalism, integrity and courage.

I found out I had rectal cancer, 64, no insurance, I asked the creator of all to help me. In one day, the Citrus Memorial sponsorship program found Dr. Pham and Dr. Carmain to do the surgery, Dr. Brant to do radiation to shrink the tumor and Dr. Cultrera to do chemo. The creator took care of everything. I have met the best medical people (angels) in Citrus. Surgery on May 6 removed the mass, four months to heal. Treated with chemo from August to October and Im now cancer-free. It was an amazing year. I want to thank all these people and also give back to the community by helping people who find out they have cancer and don't know who to ask for help. I was given so much info that I know I can help with fear issues. I gave Nancy more info and she said this was first thing to do. We can help a lot of people with their fears of cancer. All of humanity has one thing in common where suffering. I know I can help. Can you?John C. Haffkoss InvernessWhat is the leftist agenda?Re: EPA has gone too far, by Earl Ehley, Dec. 1 First of all, this question must be asked of the letter writer: What, exactly, is a leftist agenda? And how is it that you see the EPA as being such a detriment to industry? The EPA has been seemingly quite compliant with the oil and gas industry, giving a green light to hydraulic fracturing and mountaintop removal coal mining in the last several years, just to name a couple of items. Overall, domestic oil and gas exploration has been on an upswing, with the Obama administration supporting the Keystone XL Tar Sands pipeline. Theres no doubt that having a functional and thriving manufacturing and industrial base is essential to a good economy; however, would you also concede that to allow a lead smelting industry to operate without any oversight is also shortsighted and could adversely affect human health and safety? Arent hunters assuming the role of purchasing and using non-lead shot and ammunition in greater numbers, out of respect and enlightened concern for lead contamination of game and of our wild lands and waterways? Another question must be asked: how is the Obama administration curtailing the second amendment? Guns have not been outlawed, nor has ammunition. Gun sales nationwide have escalated in recent years. Ammunition is readily available in every sporting goods store Ive been to recently. Arent reasonable regulations something that industry needs, as well? Rules and standards that assure people and communities are being protected from air and water pollution, as well as assuring that workers are being protected from unsafe working conditions? How is any of that a leftist agenda? Are you aware that the EPA was responsible for the inception of the Clean Water Act, which was responsible for assuring that clean, safe drinking water was made available in our municipal water systems, and that toxins such as lead, arsenic, industrial chemicals, and heavy metals would be removed or reduced to levels safe enough for human consumption? How would you feel if you knew those standards for safe drinking water were gone? If the EPA is gone, whos going to test your water? And by whose standards? Again, how is that a leftist agenda? Or thuggish tactics? Perhaps your real problem is with President Obama, not the EPA, per se. And finally, remember that the EPA was created in 1971, during the Richard Nixon administration. Richard Nixon was certainly no leftist, now was he?Ronald Thuemler TampaOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER11, 2013 A11 STOP IN TODAY AND CHECK US OUT! 000GUP4 BIG SAVINGS on motorcycles, dirt bikes, scooters and ATVs.

Associated PressJOHANNESBURG Amid cheers and song for the prisoner who became peacemaker, President Barack Obama energized tens of thousands of spectators and nearly 100 visiting heads of state Tuesday with a plea for the world to emulate Nelson Mandela, the last great liberator of the 20th century. Obamas eulogy was the rhetorical highlight of a memorial service in which South Africans celebrated Mandelas life with singing and dancing, often during dignitaries speeches. They also booed their own president and were chided by a top government official who said: Lets not embarrass ourselves. Lashing rain lent a freewheeling aspect to the memorial, with people taking shelter in the stadiums wide hallways, where they sang anti-apartheid anthems from the 1970s and 1980s. Foul weather kept many away, and the 95,000capacity stadium was only twothirds full. Obama implored people to embrace Mandelas universal message of peace and justice, comparing the South African leader to Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Lincoln. Mandela spent 27 years in prison under a racist regime, and promoted forgiveness and reconciliation when he was finally freed. We will never see the likes of Nelson Mandela again, Obama said. But let me say to the young people of Africa, and young people around the world you can make his lifes work your own. He hailed Mandela, who died Thursday at 95, as the unlikely leader of a movement that gave potent voice to the claims of the oppressed and the moral necessity of racial justice. Born during World War I, far from the corridors of power, a boy raised herding cattle and tutored by the elders of his Thembu tribe, Madiba would emerge as the last great liberator of the 20th century, Obama said, referring to Mandela by his clan name. Obama, who like Mandela became the first black president of his country, said he was inspired by Mandela as a student. The speech was greeted with thunderous applause, and many heads of state and other foreign dignitaries gave a standing ovation. Obama pointed out that around the world today, men and women are still imprisoned for their political beliefs, and are still persecuted for what they look like, or how they worship, or who they love. Among the heads of state and government were some from countries like Cuba that dont hold fully democratic elections. On the way to the podium, Obama shook hands with Cuban President Raul Castro, underscoring a recent warming of relations between their countries. Other attending leaders criticized for their human rights records were Zimbabwes Robert Mugabe, Equatorial Guineas Teodoro Obiang Nguema and Gambias Yahya Jammeh. In contrast to the wild applause given to Obama, South African President Jacob Zuma was booed. Many South Africans are unhappy with Zuma because of state corruption scandals, though his ruling African National Congress, once led by Mandela, remains the front-runner ahead of elections next year. Mandelas record after he was elected in the first all-race elections in 1994 has faced some criticism, most of it indirect because he is such a revered figure. He did not push for major restructuring of the economy, fearing it could alienate whites who still control most of South African industry. Today, the country struggles with economic inequality, though Mandelas moral stature sets him far apart from his successors. Mandela was a very humble man, and he gave himself to the world. He sacrificed time with his family for us and for me. It is a privilege to be here, it is a humbling experience, said 35-yearold Dipolelo Moshe, who works for a marketing company. She had a South African flag draped over her shoulders and carried a big photo of Mandela as she stood in line at the stadium. Rohan Laird, the 54-year-old CEO of a health insurance company, said he grew up during white rule in a privileged position as a white South African and that Mandela helped whites work through a burden of guilt. His reconciliation allowed whites to be released themselves, Laird said. I honestly dont think the world will see another leader like Nelson Mandela. A dazzling mix of royalty, statesmen and celebrities was in attendance. Thabo Mbeki, who succeeded Mandela as president, got a rousing cheer as he entered the stands. French President Francois Hollande and his predecessor and rival, Nicolas Sarkozy, arrived together. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon waved and bowed to spectators. Mandelas widow, Graca Machel, and his former wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, gave each other a long hug before the ceremonies began. Actress Charlize Theron, model Naomi Campbell and singer Bono were among the celebrities paying final tribute. Symbolically, Tuesday was the 20th anniversary of the day when Mandela and South Africas last apartheid-era president, F.W. de Klerk, received the Nobel Peace Prize. De Klerk, a political rival who became friends with Mandela, was also in the stadium. In his Nobel acceptance speech at the time, Mandela said: We live with the hope that as she battles to remake herself, South Africa will be like a microcosm of the new world that is striving to be born. After Tuesdays memorial, Mandelas body will lie in state for three days at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, once the seat of white power, before burial Sunday in his rural childhood village of Qunu in Eastern Cape Province. Gunmen abduct Syrian human rights lawyerNABEK, Syria Masked gunmen abducted a leading Syrian human rights lawyer and three other prominent activists in a rebel-held Damascus suburb Tuesday in a new sign that al-Qaida linked militants who have joined the fight against President Bashar Assad are trying to silence rivals in the opposition movement. Razan Zaytouni, one of the most outspoken critics of President Bashar Assad as well as Islamic militants who have gained increasing sway over the fight to oust the government, was seized along with her husband and two other colleagues from her office in Douma. No group claimed responsibility for the kidnapping, but Zaytouni herself had publicly blamed al-Qaida linked rebels for kidnapping activists and colleagues said she had received indirect threats from extremists in recent days.Two French troops die disarming C. African rebelsBANGUI, Central African Republic Gunmen fatally shot two French soldiers in Central African Republics volatile capital, officials said Tuesday, underscoring the enormous challenges of a new French military intervention in its former colony that includes disarming thousands of rebels accused of attacking civilians. President Michel Djotodia condemned the attack on the French forces and blamed former leader Francois Bozize, whom he ousted from power in March, for creating the turmoil now being unleashed on the streets of Bangui. More than 500 people have been killed in the capital since Thursday and some 100,000 forced from their homes, aid officials say. Lawyer hopes sand death judgment highlights safetyALBUQUERQUE, N.M. An attorney for the family of a New Mexico woman who died in 2002 when a tractor-trailer struck her car and buried it in sand said he hopes an $80 million judgment awarded to his clients will result in real consequences for trucking companies. District Judge Shannon Bacon entered the judgment Monday to the estate of 48-year-old Laura Miera of Albuquerque and her husband and daughter. It includes $60 million in punitive damages against Albuquerque Redi-Mix and others. Miera had just dropped off her daughter at school when the semi hit her vehicle. Miera was pinned in her car while sand poured on her. Counselors, teachers and students on their way to the school frantically tried to dig her out.Missing adults, children found alive in NevadaRENO, Nev. A member of a search team on Tuesday found a couple and four young members of their families who had been missing in the frigid mountains of northern Nevada since Sunday, authorities said. The people were taken to Pershing General Hospital after they were found in good condition. Aircraft and crews on the ground were searching for James Glanton, 34, his girlfriend Christina McIntee, 25, their two children Evan and Chloe Glanton, and Shelby Fitzpatrick and Tate McIntee, a niece and nephew of Christina McIntee. The children ranged in age from 3 to 10. Overnight temperatures in the nearby town of Lovelock dipped to 16 degrees below during the search. Officials said the group had gone to the Seven Troughs area to play in the snow. Authorities said about 200 people had joined the search.

She might end up with silver or bronze, but gold would be such a nice piece. The 17-year-old Citrus High School weightlifter is out to win a state title. She would be the first Citrus County girl lifter to win a state title since the FHSAA sanctioned the sport. She took a sixth-place medal last February and that just whetted her appetite for more. The Meriden, Conn., native had a bench press of 180 pounds and a clean and jerk of 160 pounds at state. That gave her a total of 340 pounds. Kanawall said she probably needs to get a 400-pound total to win the gold medal. Her coach believes she can do it. Shes just strong, Citrus coach Tia Nelson said. Shes an athlete. She also plays volleyball, track and flag football. She also manages a 3.3 grade point average and intends to attend college after graduation. She said she wants to become an athletic trainer. At the first meet, Nov. 19, Kanawall became a member of a Citrus High Club. She had a 155-pound bench press and a 145-pound clean and jerk for a 300-pound total. Anna Venero (199) and Hannah Evans (169) also hit the 300-pound mark to join the club. Kanawall is lifting in the 183-pound class but would like to cut weight so she could lift in the 169-pound class. CR lifter Nadal overcomes hatred of gymLARRYBUGG CorrespondentLaynee Nadal said she really doesnt like going to the gym, but she does like building up some muscle. The Crystal River senior has found a way to deal with that problem. The lifelong Citrus County resident is on the Crystal River High School girls weightlifting team. The objective for Nadal is to make herself stronger for softball. She wants to be able to make her outfield throwing arm stronger and hit with more power. If she happens to be good enough to qualify for a trip to the FHSAA state meet February in Kissimmee, thats okay too. A souvenir medal wouldnt hurt her feelings either. Her coach, Randy Owens, doesnt Samantha Kanawall Citrus junior Samantha Kanawall was a state placer as a sophomore in February and has her eye on a state title in 2014.Special to the Chronicle See STATE / Page B3 See NADAL/ Page B3 Broncos hold down second spot Associated PressThe Seattle Seahawks are still the clear favorite in leading the Associated Press power rankings, with commanding homefield advantage throughout the NFC playoffs there for the clinching with a couple of wins. The San Francisco 49ers served notice, though, that they havent disappeared. Thus, after a grind-it-out NFC West division victory by the 49ers over the Seahawks on Sunday, the top of the NFL is a little more crowded. After two straight weeks as a unanimous first choice by the 12-member panel of media regularly covering the league, the Seahawks (11-2) received 10 first-place votes this time. The Denver Broncos (11-2) got the other two and came in second, in results released on Tuesday. ESPN analyst Herm Edwards and ESPN.com reporter Jeff Legwold switched their firstplace selections this week. Everyone needs to stop saying Peyton Manning cant play in the cold. The Broncos scored 51 points, Edwards wrote of Denvers lopsided win over the Tennessee Titans, the third 50-point game of the season by Manning and the Broncos. The Seahawks lost their unmatched hold on the NFLs best record. Only 43 points separate them from the 49ers (9-4), who were fifth. Still may be the most balanced team the league has to offer at the moment, Legwold said. The New Orleans Saints (10-3) moved back up two spots to third after a decisive victory over division foe Carolina. The New England Patriots (10-3) were fourth, following their third comeback win from a double-digit deficit in a row. Doing so again without star tight end Rob Gronkowski will be a difficult feat. Associated PressSeattle running back Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle Seahawks are ranked No. 1 in the AP NFL power rankings. Despite loss, Seahawks still top AP power rankings See SEAHAWKS/ Page B3 Panthers complete sweep of CR Lecanto girls run away with weightlifting meetLARRYBUGG CorrespondentLECANTO It was the third straight week for the Lecanto High School girls weightlifting team to host Crystal River in a meet at the Panthers cafeteria. The outcome wasnt very different from the first two, as the Panthers completed the three-meet sweep, winning 75-13 over the Pirates. Lecantos Breanna Johnson thought that she didnt add any weight to her totals. She had a bench press of 130 pounds and a clean and jerk of 125 pounds for a 255-pound total. Ive done better, she said. Her competition in the 139pound class, Danielle Gomez of Crystal River, found the third time wasnt great either. She was third with a 105-pound bench, a 95-pound clean and jerk and a 200-pound total. I improved at practice but today wasnt my day, she said. In the 119-pound weight class, Lecantos Andreanna Van Quelef won the class with a 230-pound total. She had a 105-pound bench and a 125-pound clean and jerk. Competition may have helped Crystal River High senior Laynee Nadal. She was second in the weight class with some of her best lifts. She had a 105-pound bench and an 110-pound clean and jerk for a 215-pound total. Crystal River coach Randy Owens is grateful for the progress he sees in his girls. The girls are getting better, Owens said. They are doing really well. Laynee Nadal at 119 had personal bests today. She has a chance to qualify for state. All our freshmen are getting better and better. That includes Shonisha Brooks, Rebecca New, Claire Redrick, Bridget Spiddle, Madison Pateracki, Haley ColeSee WEIGHTS/ Page B3 Gators extend home win streak to 21 games Associated PressGAINESVILLE Scottie Wilbekin scored a career-high 18 points, Dorian FinneySmith added 15 and No. 19 Florida held on to beat No. 13 Kansas 67-61 on Tuesday night. The Gators bounced back from a buzzer-beater loss at No. 9 Connecticut last week and extended their home-winning streak to 21 games. The latest victory came in the Big 12-SEC Challenge and surely will be meaningful when the NCAA tournament seeds are settled in March. Wilbekin, who injured his right ankle against the Huskies eight days ago, made 7 of 12 shots and added six assists. Freshman Andrew Wiggins led the Jayhawks (6-3) with 26 points and 11 rebounds his first double-double and both career highs. Kansas has lost two straight. The Gators (7-2) went on a 21-0 run and led by as many as 18 points in the first half, but Kansas made it 60-55 on Wiggins 3-pointer with 55.8 seconds remaining. It was his second 3 in the final 1:20. Florida closed it out from the free-throw line barely. The Jayhawks fouled center Patric Young down the stretch, and the big man missed all of his free throws. It got even more dicey for the Gators when Casey Prather, one of Floridas top free-throw shooters, missed two with 22 seconds remaining. Jamari Traylor hit two on the other end, cutting Floridas lead to 65-61 with 10.9 seconds left. Florida freshman Kasey Hill ended any chance of a comeback by draining two free throws. Associated PressFlorida center Patric Young goes for two from under the basket as Kansas center Joel Embiid is unable to block the shot during the first half Tuesday in Gainesville. The No. 19 Gators held on for a 67-61 victory over the No. 13 Jayhawks.

Its actually in Key Biscayne, but for marketing purposes around the world its in Miami. From experience we can say this is one of the most fanfriendly tournaments on the professional circuit, and an additional bonus for us Floridians; it is in our own backyard. In 2014 the tournament will be held from March 17 to 30, with the first two days being qualifying rounds. The location of the event is Crandon Park Tennis Center on Key Biscayne. A typical day at the event is divided into a day and night session, with separate tickets needed for each. Day sessions start at 11 a.m., night sessions at 7:30 p.m. For information and ticket pricing, call 1-800-725-5472 or 1-305-442-3367, visit the website at www.sonyopentennis.com or email tickets@imgworld.com. There is also a way to see matches for free by becoming a volunteer for the event. You have to work a certain amount of sessions in order to qualify for two free tickets for five different sessions. You could apply to be a courtesy driver, helping people to find their seats, to just mention a few. Go to the sonyopen tennis.com website and click on the volunteer link.

Check out the Sony Open in Key Biscayne Eric van den HoogenON TENNIS Its all in the grip This month I would like to discuss one of the most important and overlooked piece of equipment the grips on your clubs, which are just as important as the type of ball you play and having properly fit clubs. There are two main factors that need to be taken into consideration when deciding on grips. The first one is the type of grip. There are many different types, but the basics are a wrap grip, a cord grip, a velvet grip and composite grip. The second is the size of the grip. When choosing what type of grip you want on your clubs, you must first try some out. Every grip is different in the way it feels in your hands. Some are tacky, some are rough and some are soft. The grip you choose is based completely on your personal preference. If you are the type of golfer who does not wear a glove, you might like a cord grip or composite grip that gives you a little more grip on the club. Other golfers like a softer grip, such as Winn grip that provides a little more cushion at impact. Again, it all comes down to what feels best in your hands. My suggestion is to go to your local golf store and check out all the different types. The second key factor and the most important is the size of the grip. Most amateur golfers have grips that are too big for their hands. The only golfers who should have larger grips are those golfers with either really, really big hands or such bad arthritis that they cannot close their hand. A good test is to check to see if you can make a fist. If you can make a fist, then you do not need larger grips for arthritis. To check for proper grip size, grip the club and check to see if the tips of your fingers are lightly touching the palm of your hand. If your fingers are digging into your hand or your palms are covering your fingertips, then the grips are too small. If there is a gap between your fingertips and the palm of your hands, then the grip is too large. A properly-sized grip will have your fingertips lightly touching the palm of your hands and allows your hands to work together, helping to create a proper release of the golf club. When the grip is too big, it restricts the release and can produce a slice. Now that you have the type of grip and the proper size grip, you must maintain your grip. Most golfers clean their club heads, but most do not clean their grips. You want to clean your grips about once a month in order to remove the oils that are deposited on them from our hands. This oil can cause a grip to lose its tackiness and will also cause them needing to be replaced more often. The last factor I want to address in relation to grips is how often you should change them. I bet most of my readers right now are thinking, change my grips? I am sure that most of you have not changed your grips since you bought your clubs. A good rule of thumb is that you should change your grips as many times a year as the amount of times you play golf a week. For example if you average playing golf twice a week, then you should change your grips twice a year. For more information, please contact me at 352-382-5996 for a lesson at Southern Woods or Sugarmill Woods. See you on the links. Herb HurleyHERBS HINTS Associated PressTHOUSAND OAKS, Calif. Wanting to return among the elite in golf, Graeme McDowell mapped out a plan last fall. He figured out how many ranking points he would need to get back into the top five in the world. And he went about it the right way. It started with his win at the World Challenge a year ago. He won at Hilton Head on the PGA Tour. He won the World Match Play Championship and the French Open on the European Tour. He was third at World Golf Championships in Doral and Shanghai. Ive got to say, I got pretty close to that target that I set myself, McDowell said. Little did he know how much the target would be moving in an extraordinary year for golf. McDowell ended last year at No. 15 in the world. Now he is all the way up to No. 12. I wasnt really factoring on how many great players around me were going to have incredible seasons, McDowell said. So making an impact in that top 10 in the world has been very difficult to do this year because you just get so many guys playing incredibly well. Call it bad timing for McDowell, and happy days for golf. Rarely has the golf season men and women felt so rewarding for so many players. Perhaps that explains why Tiger Woods could win five times more than any other player in the world capture the PGA Tour money title and the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average, and then listen to people discuss the definition of player of the year and whether he is worthy without having won a major. Woods won the vote as the best player on the PGA Tour. He is used to playing under a different set of standards, a victim of his own success. Anyone else with five trophies from the courses where he won Torrey Pines, Doral, Bay Hill, TPC Sawgrass and Firestone and there wouldnt be a debate. But this wasnt just any other year. Adam Scott became the first Australian to win the Masters, and along the way earned redemption from blowing the British Open nearly nine months earlier. He had the outright lead on the back nine at the British Open this year before faltering. A month later, he won The Barclays during the FedEx Cup playoffs, arguably one of the strongest fields of the year with the tours top 125 players who are all on form. When he finally went home to show off his green jacket, Scott won the Australian PGA Championship and the Australian Masters. Sharing the wealth Associated PressTiger Woods won the vote as the best player on the PGA Tour.

What motivates me is the whole family that we have. We are kind of competing with each other to do best. She said Chop Alexander and Kevin Bingham have helped her. She is a very strong girl and has found that many guys admire her success. Its actually more credit and props, she said. Its more like keep what youre doing. Some guys are like thats pretty embarrassing. I need to hit the weight room more. She remembers when the feeling she had when she had that medal. Mostly excitement, she said. I was actually thankful. It showed all more hard work. She wants that feeling again. care what motivates her. Hes just happy to have her pumping iron. Shes a great girl, Owens said. Shes a hard worker. Shes a hustler. She is a three-sport athlete (volleyball also). She knows what it takes to compete. This year, she finds herself the veteran on a young Pirate lifting squad. There are 23 on the team and 15 of them are freshmen and sophomores. She has three years on the team. She is able to maintain a 3.58 grade point average in the classroom. Next year, she wants to attend college. She has it narrowed down to two schools, Florida International University in Miami and Savannah College for Arts and Design. She said she wants to eventually become involved in the creative part of advertising. For now, though, she is pushing some iron and competing in the 119pound class. It (weightlifting) has helped me a lot in softball, Nadal said. I just like to be in shape. I hate going to the gym. I cant do this by myself. Coach Owens is kind of a motivator. She said that former teammate Emily Laga beat her out for a chance at the state meet last year. Laga was 15th at state last year and has graduated. A trip to Kissimmee would be just delightful for the former cheerleader. It would make it easier for her to go to the gym in the future. man and India Langlot. Lecanto coach Bob LeCours thought hed start seeing what Panthers will be contenders in February. A lot of the younger kids are at a plateau, LeCours said. I think we finally realize where we are at. Now, we are going to see the workers continue on. Cheyenne Atkins (101 class) had a successful performance with a 175 total. Amanda Meyers (110 class) is getting stronger at 180. Andreanna (Van Quelef) (119 class) pumped up to 230 today. We have a battle between Sonja (Meigs) and Amanda (Caruluzzo). (Caruluzzo had 215 pounds total and Meigs had 205 pounds in the 129pound class.) Its nice to see Breanna (Johnson) get back. She went up 20 pounds in the past few weeks. We are working to get her around 260 pounds total, which should be the magic number (for state qualification). It should put her in striking distance. We are pretty happy with that.Individual results101 1. Cheyenne Adkins (L) 80-95-175; 3. Bliss Mercuri (CR) 75-80-155. 110 1. Amanda Myers (L) 85-95-180; 2. Emily Hellstern (L) 70-90-160. 119 1.

The defense has been plagued with injuries and now Gronk is gone, wrote Pat Kirwan of CBSSports.com. The only QB in the NFL that can keep this team winning is Tom Brady. This is the biggest test of his career. The Panthers (9-4) were sixth and Kansas City (10-3) seventh. The Chiefs broke a three-game losing streak with a blowout win at Washington. Chiefs will be best No. 5 seed in the playoffs in a long time, said Fox consultant John Czarnecki. Rounding out the top 10: Cincinnati Bengals (9-4), Philadelphia Eagles (85) and Indianapolis Colts (8-5), who were beaten 42-28 by the Bengals and have dropped three of their past five games, losing those by an average margin of more than 24 points. What has happened to the Colts? wrote NBC analyst Tony Dungy of the team he used to coach. The Arizona Cardinals (8-5) were 11th and the Baltimore Ravens (7-6) and Chicago Bears (7-6) tied for 12th. Creeping up the rankings again were the Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9) who were a unanimous last-place team two months ago. Theyre 25th now. No one in the AFC is hotter, wrote Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News. The Ravens, Broncos and Patriots have also won four of their last five games, like the Jaguars. The Houston Texans (2-11), headed for the first pick in the draft next spring, fired coach Gary Kubiak last week and were the consensus 32ndplace team, the only padding at the bottom for the reeling Washington Redskins (3-10). Said Ira Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune: Whether its a firing or a resignation, Mike Shanahan is toast.

Halfway through the four-day swap session, the 15-foot-wide dais at the Dolphin Hotel near Walt Disney World has been used for three announcements involving player transactions triple the total of last years inert meetings in Nashville, Tenn. In the big deal of the day, the Chicago White Sox acquired outfielder Adam Eaton from Arizona for left-hander Hector Santiago, and the Diamondbacks then sent Santiago and left-hander Tyler Skaggs to the Angels for Trumbo. Arizona also will receive a player to be named or cash from each of the other teams. Oakland, the two-time defending AL West champion, received lefty Drew Pomeranz and minor league right-hander Chris Jensen from the Rockies for Anderson. The As also included cash to cover part of the salary of the left-hander, who is due $8 million next season.

Your children can become anyone they want to be, the possibilities are endless. As a parent, you recognize your childrens strengths and can see their potential. But while young, they may only see the barriers and roadblocks standing in their way. They do not see their full potential and they do not believe they have what it takes to be successful. Luckily, you can help. Here are five suggestions for helping your children reach their full potential and achieve success in their lives. 1. Provide opportunities. When your children attempt new things, they find hidden talents. They find activities that they enjoy and skills that become valuable throughout their entire lives. Provide opportunities for your children to find these talents, skills and passions. Let your children try new sports, extracurricular activities, jobs, classes and more. Be encouraging and helpful as they try to find things they love to do. However, be smart about what activities and classes your children choose to try. Too many activities at once can become overwhelming and stressful and will most likely result in a quitter instead of an achiever. 2. Praise your child. Let your children know when you are proud of them. Let them know when they do something right. Your praise and recognition means a lot to a child. It can build them up, even when they have low confidence and self-esteem. When children receive praise, they are more likely to continue trying because they want their parents approval. Praise is a way to encourage and a way to help boost up your childs confidence and self-worth. 3. Support your childs decisions. Your children are individuals. They have their own loves and passions and they wont always choose hobbies, sports, activities and even careers that you choose. Be supportive of your childs decisions. Your support shows your love and your willingness to assist them in whatever activities they pursue. When you dont show that support, your children will have a more difficult time finding activities they enjoy and want to continue. When challenges and failure come along, your child will be more likely to quit and give up than push forward and reach his or her potential. 4. Teach commitment. If you want your child to succeed, you must teach him what it takes to be committed. Teach your children to be committed to the activities, classes and jobs they decide to pursue. Let children try new opportunities but encourage them to see the activity through and not quit in the middle of the event. When children learn to be committed, they become valuable assets to their future employers, family members, neighbors and friends. 5. Set goals together. When your child is a goal-oriented individual, he is more willing to reach his potential. Set goals with your children to motivate and drive them. You can even use incentives and be their own personal cheerleader as they learn to set goals and what it takes to accomplish them. No matter who your child is, he has much potential. Children have the ability to accomplish things that may seem out of reach, they may just need a little help. Be there for your children and watch them achieve their full potential. On February 23, 2005, a nine-year-old went missing out of her bedroom in the middle of the night. Her father went out with a friend and returned home the following morning to get ready for work. He heard his daughters alarm clock go off continuously, went into her room to check on her, and found that she was missing. A massive search was held for the little girl, Jessica, which drew attention nation-wide for the next three weeks. Rumor was that she had attended church and ran away from there. Then we heard that her mother, who lived in another state, had taken her. It was even reported that Jessica was caught on a gas station surveillance film with her mother in Ohio. It was all false, of course. A sex offender by the name of John Couey was illegally living in a mobile home across the street from her, disobeying his previous parole. John claimed he entered the Lunsford home through a door that was left unlocked, and he took Jessica, keeping her in his closet for several days. Nearly a month later, the search for the little girl was discontinued when her body was found buried in a shallow grave under the porch of a home, less than 150 yards from her own, where John was residing. That very day, March 19th, heartbreak was spreading throughout the country. Now, imagine it happening to a classmate, a close friend ...I t hits pretty hard, doesnt it? Thats how 2005 was for me. At the time of the tragedy, we were in third grade. Jessica and I were in the same elementary class, and merely a month before her disappearance, my mother chaperoned us on a field trip to Universal Studios. We had a close bond at our school, and her murder struck harder than we could bear to handle. Never could a group of third-graders expect to see so many law enforcement officers in a single vicinity. One by one the reporters and investigators pulled students out of class for questioning, knit-picking of every little detail they possibly could. When I was called in, the only thing I could do was bluntly blurt out the question, Is she ever coming back? Of course they told me yes, but I knew she wasnt. When it was discovered that she had passed, class couldnt be continued as normal. Work wasnt being completed. Attendance was poor. And for the kids who did attend class, counselors were brought in. As far as my home environment, news stations were blocked on my television so I couldnt watch the reports. Newspaper delivery was put to a halt, which to this day still doesnt come. And on top of that, I was absolutely terrified to sleep in my own bed for almost a year. Some kids couldnt fathom that she was veritably gone; others grasped it, but felt unsafe, like me. As a nine-year-old, the murder of a friend is a great deal to take in. It made it nearly impossible to see the good in anyone. A part of my childhood was taken away from me as well as from my classmates. I try to repress the thought of the murder itself, but the memory of Jessica will always remain. EDUCATIONSection CWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE LECANTOEvery once in a while a teacher gets a student who shines. For Melissa Alling, freshman composition instructor at the College of Central Florida, Citrus Campus, that student is Chloe Kaufmann, who is also a senior at Lecanto High School.Alling had given her class an assignment to write a personal essay and include the elements of audience, purpose and thesis. Chloe remembered a girl from her third-grade class at Homosassa Elementary School Jessica Lunsford. Its been more than eight years since Jessicas death, but her classmates still remember; her death impacted them, too. When grading assignments, I rarely give 100s, and her essay was one of them, Alling said. The essay was very well written, but the topic was arresting. It was a n example of an essay that really went beyond the assignment. So many students think of these papers as a drag, she said. Chloe took it and did something with it, and I think she deserves recognition for writing something so profound that could help other people. Plus, Jessicas family might appreciate that she still remembers her classmate. Chloe, who hopes to attend the University of Texas after graduation, said Jessicas death is still remembered and is sometimes talked about among the students who knew her. We were just kids, she said.

CHALKTALKPage C2WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Give the gift of learning this holiday season As the holidays approach, we all are thinking of what to get that special person on our list. A gift certificate for a course or program could go a long way in making someone happy. I invite you visit our website, www.wtionline.cc, to see the many courses and programs we offer. There are both day and evening classes available. As director of WTI, I get asked to give an opinion on a number of things. As a result, I give a lot of advice. So my holiday gift advice follows, and feel free to regift this as many times as you like to family and friends. One thing I think we all have learned during this time of the poor economy is that people need to be adaptable. As the county progresses toward economic recovery, more and more jobs will become available. In all likelihood, the jobs that become available are not going to be exactly like the job you left. Here are some key points to keep in mind to be eligible for reemployment. First, know how to locate information and identify specific information. Read books, trade journals and magazines. Visit websites, talk to people and take a class. Information is available from many sources. You need to access those sources to keep up with the changes in technology. You want to be able to move into those jobs that have been restructured. Next, being competent in reading, writing, computation, oral communication and listening skills are very valuable skills to have and to maintain. These skills enable the worker to articulate ideas or solutions to problems. Time and time again I see people become so emotionally involved in an issue that they do not listen to what is being said by others. Or a person is so eager to start doing a task they do not listen to the instructions given by the employer. Listening as well as speaking are two very important skills to continually develop. The employers return on investment is paramount. In other words, employers pay good wages to their workers. In return, they expect the employee to contribute to the profitability of the business. In addition to doing the job you were hired to do, you need to be proactive in looking for ways to improve a process, improve a product or add a service that will lead to more customers or sales. Develop a strong self-concept. Possessing strong communication skills, along with reading, math and computation skills will enhance your self-concept. When a person has a strong self-concept and is willing to learn from every day experiences, they can better handle whatever comes their way during the work day. All of the aforementioned skills are a good combination for teamwork. Lastly, once you get the job, learn how the organization works. Accepting responsibility and being part of the team are two important qualities in every worker. The workplace is becoming very technical and very complex, but the basic skills for success have changed very little over the years. I wish all my readers a happy and safe holiday.

NEWS NOTES Special to the ChronicleThe Citrus Abuse Shelter Association (CASA) is planning a ZUMBA-THON charity event to raise funds for CASAs shelter and programs for the victims of domestic violence. The money raised will help fund the emergency shelter and enhance the level of services provided to assist the victims. CASA plans to provide a fun, entertaining event all while exercising to Latin rhythms under the direction of professional Zumba instructor Anna Oliviero. Attendees will be entered to win one of several initial consultation weight-loss packages from Dr. Scott Redrick at the Medical Weight Loss Center in Crystal River. There will also be a grand prize drawing for a free three-month membership at Dynabody Fitness Club in Inverness. Citrus County residents and businesses are needed to make the event a success. A donation for admission will help pay for advocacy, support, counseling, shelter, legal aid and a host of other services for the victims and survivors of domestic violence. CASA works closely with other agencies, such as the Department of Children and Families and law enforcement agencies. CASA also provides a 24-hour hotline for domestic violence victims. Domestic Violence Hotline calls and the need for these services typically increases immediately following the holidays; the timing of the event coincides with an increased need for funding. The ZUMBA-THON charity event will be at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 19, at the Chet Cole Life Enrichment Center, 5521 Buster Whitten Way, Lecanto. The nonrefundable donation to attend this event is $10. Light refreshments will be available. For more information, or to register, call Janet Butler at 352-527-2304, or email janetbl95@gmail.com. Zumba with CASA Proceeds from lively event will raise money for emergency shelter, services It is a documented fact that the big holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas can produce feelings that are not jolly. What can be done to chase away these not OK feelings? If we believe words can wound, then we must also believe words can heal and our own actions can help chase away holiday unhappiness. One of my favorite authors, Dr. Jerry Jampolsky, has written several books on this subject, one of which is titled To Give is to Receive. This simple theory can be difficult to put in practice, in that, he says, many of us go through life expecting to get something, when true happiness and fulfillment are found in giving. This giving can be in the form of intangibles: friendliness, thoughtfulness, the gift of time and so forth. Im going to suggest that perhaps, sometimes with effort, you can fill your own empty places with kindness to others that can take so many forms, even a cheery good morning to your neighbor, accompanied by a smile. We can then take this one step further, and ask that biblical question, Who is my neighbor? For this season, my hope is you will receive some insight and comfort through these simple words. Traditionally, NAMI Citrus has taken a Christmas break, due to all the activities swirling around us. Actually, we are not on break, as the board will continue to meet and our Warm Line remains in operation at 352-341-2273. Big things are in store as we strive to grow and better serve the community: We are actively planning a local website and, best news of all, will soon announce time and date for our long-awaited Family to Family classes early in the new year. Our general meeting will be the second Monday in January at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on County Road 486. We will announce this again early in January.

Citrus County Speedway is conducting a contest for children to name the new mascot. The contest is open to kids ages 13 and younger, and entries will be accepted until Jan. 29.Special to the Chronicle What is Zumba?Zumba is a Latin-inspired dance-fitness class that combines Latin and international music and dance movements, using fast and slow rhythms that tone and sculpt the body in an aerobic/fitness fashion to achieve a balance of cardio and muscle-toning benefits. The cardio-based dance movements are easy-to-follow steps that include body sculpting, which targets specific muscle groups, as well as the most important muscle of the body, the heart. The best part about Zumba is that you do not have to know how to dance to succeed. Zumbas party-like atmosphere is non-intimidating, so it provides the perfect atmosphere for group training. Citrus County Speedway seeks kids help to come up with name Special to the ChronicleAll students are invited to participate in an optional Homework Help Program at the Central Ridge Club. Students are expected to work with staff, junior staff and outside tutors for 30 minutes Monday through Thursday on their school homework. Parents are expected to arrange their schedules so the students can attend the program, which will be held during Power Hour (3:15 to 3:45 p.m. for Group A and 4 to 4:30 p.m. for Group B). Parents are expected to share school report cards with staff and, if appropriate, ask their childs teacher at Forest Ridge Elementary or Central Ridge Elementary for any study materials their child requires. Students will be provided with a weekly tally at 50 cents per day every Friday until they accumulate a $5 gift card for Walmart, McDonalds or another store selected by staff with input from parents. Gift cards will also be distributed each Friday. Guidelines for this program require the children to be present every day. Additionally, if the child does not study during the homework time, they will be removed from the program. The program is paid for by Nature Coast Affordable Housing Corp., an allvolunteer nonprofit that supports the Central Ridge Boys & Girls Club. Homework help at Boys & Girls Club Kids from Forest Ridge, Central Ridge elementary can participate The program involves 30-minute tutoring sessions for students with staf f and volunteers.

Conveniently spiral-bound for ease of use, this invaluable resource contains A-to-Z facts about each state, along with the District of Columbia. Illustrated with colorful photographs and art, and complete with updated information, The Mini Page Book of States will be a favorite in classrooms and homes for years to come. For thousands of years, the night skies have sparkled with reminders of magical creatures. Ancient people told stories about the patterns they saw in the stars. These star patterns are called constellations. To learn more, The Mini Page talked with an expert from the National Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.Starring the real stars Different cultures made up different stories to go with the same star patterns. For example, a row of three bright stars shines especially brightly in the winter night sky. To the ancient Greeks, these stars looked like the belt worn by a mighty hunter named Orion (uh-RIE-uhn) in one of their myths (miths), or stories. The constellation containing these stars is called Orion. Other cultures have seen those same three stars as being the rod of Jacob from a Bible story, a yardstick, a wand, the three magi from the Bible story about Jesus birth, or the three Marys in Bible stories.Star qualities A star is a big ball of gases crammed together in a cloud. The gases are mostly hydrogen, with a small amount of helium. New stars are formed when the pressure of the gases and dust gets so great that the heat at the core of a cloud reaches millions of degrees. The star begins to shine when the hydrogen atoms are fused, or joined together, to form helium atoms. Reaching for the stars In some cultures, such as ancient China, people did not make up stories to go with the star patterns. Star patterns with no stories attached are often called asterisms (AS-tuh-rizums). Asterisms are usually smaller patterns than constellations. For example, the Big Dipper is an asterism inside the bigger constellation Ursa Major, or the Big Bear. Orions belt is an asterism in the constellation Orion. Sometimes, asterism is just another name for constellation. Both mean groupings of stars that can be seen as a design from Earth. The best time to view Orion is during the winter. In early December at 8 p.m., it will just be rising in the east. Look north to find the Big and Little Dippers. photo courtesy Digitalized Sky Survey, ESA/ESO/NASAThe three stars making up Orions belt are blue supergiant stars. They are hotter and much larger than the sun. This photo was made of several photos put together.

In 1925, the International Astronomical Union decided to keep the names used by so many for so long. To make things easier, modern astronomers have divided the whole sky into 88 regions. Each region contains one constellation. These regions in the sky are somewhat like our country borders here on Earth. The borders are jagged, like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle. They have different shapes so they can include all the parts of the constellations, such as the tail of the Big Bear or the whole dragon in the constellation Draco.Dancing with the stars The shapes ancient people saw in star patterns dont usually make sense to us today. For example, we wouldnt see a hunters belt when we saw three stars in a row. We might see a lightsaber, though. The best way to find constellations is to look for shapes that make sense to us.Ancient Greeks were stellar! More than 2,000 years ago, the ancient Greeks invented an early computer to calculate the movement of the stars, planets and constellations. This device, the Antikythera Mechanism, was made up of a complicated series of gears. In 1902, divers discovered pieces of this machine in a shipwreck off the Greek island of Antikythera (AN-teekuh-THEER-uh). Since then, experts have built working models of it, including one from Lego blocks. The Big Dipper is easy to spot in the sky. It forms part of the constellation Ursa Major, or the Big Bear. The dippers handle makes up the bears tail. The Big Dipper is a common star pattern that is described in many cultures. For example, the English call it the Plough, or plow. photo courtesy Wikimedia CommonsExperts X-rayed the Antikythera Mechanism to see how it works.

Jeffrey is the leader of the Bossy Frog Band and a music therapist. He worked as a jazz saxophonist in a band on a cruise ship. He later went back to college to become a music therapist. He used music to help kids and adults who were ill or had special needs. He began writing his own songs for kids. Jeffrey grew up in New York City. He said: I remember the moment I fell in love with music! The fourth-grade music teacher came into our classroom to demonstrate all the instruments that we could choose from.

Modern spacecraft also use the stars to navigate. Constellations helped ancient people plan their year. They noticed that different constellations were visible at night during different times of the year. Ancient people used these apparent changes to help them figure out when to perform certain tasks, such as planting crops. For example, ancient Mayan people watched for the spring constellations to predict the return of the rains.Star search Modern people can use constellations to locate objects in the universe. For example, the star-forming region closest to Earth is called the Orion Nebula. From Earth with the naked eye, the nebula looks like the brightest star in Orions sword. It is not actually one star, however, but a region with about 1,000 young stars. Astronomers have given all the stars within a constellation certain coordinates (ko-OR-duh-nuts), or numbers that tell a position. That way, they can tell where objects are in connection with other items.Seeing stars Clear winter nights when the moon is dark are the best times to view the stars. The best stargazing is out in the country, away from city lights. Stars are always in the sky, but we do not see them during the day because the sun shines so brightly that it blots them out. As the Earth moves around the sun, we get different views of constellations. If the Earth did not move, we would see the same sky night after night. Each constellation has a time when we can see it best, when it is highest of Pegasus is most visible during the autumn. photo courtesy NASA,ESA, M.

C6WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER11, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Elizabeth Gaskell, a 19th-century English novelist and short-story writer, said, How easy it is to judge rightly after one sees what evil comes from judging wrongly! At the bridge table, how easy it usually is to see the winning line after going down from playing wrongly. This deal is a good example of that. West leads the club queen against four spades. How should South proceed? A less experienced player follows rules and has trouble spotting when they are not appropriate. Here, declarer would see nine trumps and think nine never do not finesse for the queen; instead, play for the drop. But when the queen does not appear and he turns to diamonds, East ruffs the third round and shifts to the heart queen, giving the defenders one spade and three hearts. Lets analyze this deal without using rules. If spades are 4-0, especially if West has them all, South is in difficulty. But if the trump split is more favorable, he is sitting prettier. Outside spades, declarer has six winners: four diamonds and two clubs. So he needs only four spade tricks, not five. Next, he can lose four tricks only if East gets on play and leads a high heart through Souths king, with West having the ace. Then declarer could lose one spade and three hearts. It is time for an avoidance play. After winning the first trick, declarer should play a spade to dummys ace and follow with a spade to his jack. Here, that brings home an overtrick. But even if the finesse were to lose, the heart king and the contract would be safe with West on lead.

Two separations and three counselors later, I decided to leave him. That was in June. I recently met someone who makes me believe there are good people out there. But my soon-to-be ex and my brother have been screaming from the rooftops that I am a cheater, and that my husbands behavior was perfect. This hurts me so deeply I cannot describe the pain. I bent over backward for this man for years, but he always has to win. Due to my brothers badmouthing me and my unwillingness to fight, my parents barely speak to me. My ex is irresponsible about money, so I paid off his truck and am making half of his house payment so my kids have a place to stay when they see him. I have 10 pages of documentation from all the horribleness I have lived through. I hope my parents someday will warm up to the new man who treats me so well. I have given up on my brother. Meanwhile, my ex keeps telling me how he is doing the right thing by letting my children see me, because all of his friends tell him not to. Of course, he never was involved with the kids. Hes using them for leverage. I pay for all of the childrens expenses and their health insurance, and I see a counselor regularly. But every week, my ex or my brother contacts me and tries to make me feel like a terrible person for leaving. Will it ever stop? Exhausted in Wisconsin Dear Wisconsin: We hope so, but you have to be strong. Until the divorce is final, your husband (and brother) will try to wear you down so you will return. As long as the children can be used to pressure you, your ex will do so. We know you are tired, but you need to fight back a little harder. Let your parents know exactly what is going on, and let them see the documentation. Make sure you have a good attorney who will see that the kids are protected and have access to both of their parents. Dont push your new relationship. Its too soon for your parents to accept. And keep seeing your counselor. It will help. Dear Annie: I have battled cancer since 1995. I will be on chemotherapy or some drug until I wish no further medical intervention. I am always bald, so I wear a beautiful assortment of headscarves. This usually elicits a caring smile, the start of a conversation or a comment meant to give hope. And while I am grateful for the smiles and caring statements, there is one comment I would like to eliminate. A number of people say, Well, were all dying. I understand these folks mean well, but it is a condescending and insensitive thing to say. Instead of giving hope or comfort, it says that my terminal diagnosis isnt that big of a deal and I should just get over it. Please tell people to think carefully before making such a comment to one who is terminally ill. Counting My Blessings in Jacksonville, Fla. Dear Counting: We could write a book about all of the inappropriate comments that people make when confronted with awkward or difficult situations. Thanks for alerting them to put this particular phrase in a locked drawer and throw away the key. Dear Annie: Not Lonely in Virginia said she has trouble making friends. When she added, I suspect it may have to do with reading body language. I cant interpret the signals, it sounded like Aspergers. I was in a relationship with a man with Aspergers, and I didnt have a clue about this syndrome. It was devastating. I read everything I could and now understand it.
