MARIACHENG AP medical writerLONDON He may have a license to kill, but is he sober enough to shoot? British doctors who carefully read Ian Flemings series of James Bond novels say the celebrated spy regularly drank more than four times the recommended limit of alcohol per week. Their research was published in the lighthearted Christmas edition of the medical journal BMJ on Thursday. Dr. Patrick Davies and colleagues at Nottingham University Hospital analyzed 14 James Bond books and documented every drink Bond had. They also noted days when he was unable to drink, such as when he was hospitalized, in rehab or imprisoned. The academics found that the spy also known as 007 drank about 92 units of alcohol a week; more than four times the safe amount recommended by the British government. One unit is about eight grams of pure alcohol. A pint of beer has three units of alcohol, about the same as a large glass of wine. Bonds drinking habits put him at high risk for numerous alcoholrelated diseases and an early alcohol-related death, the authors write. The level of functioning as displayed in the books is inconsistent with the physical, mental and indeed sexual functioning expected from someone drinking this much alcohol, the authors conclude. Davies and colleagues also suspect Bonds trademark order that his martinis be shaken, not stirred may have been because he had an alcoholinduced tremor. They noted his biggest daily drinking binge was in the book From Russia with Love, when he downed nearly 50 units of alcohol. They also suspected alcohol may have been a factor in Casino Royale, when he knocked back 39 units before getting into a high-speed car chase, lost control and crashed the car. The authors recognized that Bonds high-stress job may have also driven him over the edge. Although we appreciate the societal pressures to consume alcohol when working with international terrorists and high-stakes gamblers, we would advise Bond be referred for further assessment of his alcohol intake, they concluded.

Race boats slated at Lake Hernando PATFAHERTY Staff writerAn exhibition powerboat event is scheduled for Jan.4 on Lake Hernando, which could be a prelude to a major race on the lake in September. The U.S. Formula1 Powerboat Tour will have a day of demo and exhibition runs to get the feel of the lake, showcase the sport and generate support for hosting its 2014 championship weekend. Adam Thomas, interim tourism director, introduced the idea in October and this week the Tourism Development Council approved spending up to $1,000 for related costs. Thomas is working with the chamber of commerce to attract sponsors for the September event, which would cost about $45,000 to bring to Citrus County. According to its news release, the Powerboat Tour has a high expectation of Formula1 racing returning to the state of Florida in 2014.

continuous searches of a much-needed Florida race site, we think Lake Hernando and Citrus County are a perfect match not only for a water-based event, but a Formula1 race, said Jose Mendana Jr., president of the U.S. Formula 1 Powerboat Tour. Not only is Lake Hernando a perfect race site for our tour, we are really thrilled to launch a Formula1 Championship Weekend program, which we plan to turn into annual tradition for many years to come. We are looking forward to our test day to show what Formula 1 racing can and will bring to the county as well as a preview of the up-close action the fans in the area will get to see come next September. Four boats are scheduled to participate in the exhibition. The days events will include an open test session for the four teams followed by simulated match races and a 10-lap final. Formula1 powerboat racing uses tunnel-hull catamarans capable of both high speed and exceptional maneuverability. Overall, the boats must weigh 1,150pounds with driver. The boats are up to 17feet long and 7feet wide, keeping weight low through extensive use of carbon fiber and Kevlar. The boats are powered by Mercury Marine V6 two-stroke and OMC Johnson V8 motors that generate more than 400 horsepower and can propel the boats to 100 mph in less than 3seconds and to a maximum speed of more than 135mph. The Saturday, Jan.4, event is free and open to the public, with on-water activity scheduled to start at 11a.m. and end at 2:30p.m. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.

Mastracchio, an experienced spacewalker, said hes more than ready to go out and make repairs, if deemed necessary by Mission Control. Any time you have something like this, its good news, bad news, Mastracchio told The Associated Press on Friday. Of course, the bad news is the stations having problems and we have to go out and do a repair. The good news is we have the spare parts. We have the training. We have the skills and, of course, going out and doing a spacewalk is always very exciting yet very challenging. One of two cooling loops on the space station shut down Wednesday after it got too cold. Flight controllers suspect a bad valve inside an external pump. Its a serious situation that needs to be remedied quickly, officials said, in case there are additional failures. On Friday, engineers in Houston spent a third day working on the issue. They want to see if they can solve the problem remotely, before ordering up a series of spacewalks to replace the entire pump. Three spacewalks were required to install this pump in 2010. The space station cooling system uses ammonia to dissipate heat generated by on-board equipment. The six astronauts have turned off all nonessential equipment to reduce the heat load, including some science experiments. Thats resulted in extra free time for Mastracchio and his U.S., Japanese and Russian crewmates. Otherwise, life has not changed much a couple of hundred miles up, he noted. We still have lights. We still have the toilet working. We still have food, and were still very comfortable up here, Mastracchio said. So the biggest problem is that were just not taking the time during our schedule to do as much science as we normally would. An upcoming delivery mission may be delayed because of the cooling system trouble. The commercial Cygnus capsule, currently scheduled for a Wednesday launch from Wallops Island, Va., almost certainly holds holiday surprises for the astronauts, along with the usual stash of supplies. At least Mastracchio doesnt have to cram in any last-minute Christmas shopping, using the space stations Internet phone or online capability. The 53year-old engineer said he bought presents for his wife before he rocketed into orbit at the beginning of November for a sixmonth mission. Being away from your friends and family during the holidays is not optimal, he told the AP. But if you have to be away from your family on Christmas, then this is sure not a bad place to be. And children, stay tuned. Were always on the lookout for Santa up here, Mastracchio said with a smile. Associated PressThe International Space Station is shown May23, 2010, with the backdrop of Earth. On Thursday, astronauts aboard the station dimmed the lights, turned off unnecessary equipment and put off science work as NASA scrambled to figure out whats wrong with one of two identical cooling loops that shut down Wednesday.

ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerINVERNESS Life wasnt always so pleasant and enjoyable for Tim Demarest. My life was bad before I became a member of the LightHouse, Demarest said. However, he has had a change of life and is working three days a week with a smile on his face and fulfillment in his heart. My life has completely changed because of the LightHouse and the Transitional Employment Program, Demarest said. Demarest works part time housekeeping at The Centers in Lecanto as part of his Transitional Employment Program (TEP) at the LightHouse in Inverness. The LightHouse, in conjunction with The Centers, provides mental health and substance abuse support. The TEP component of the clubhouse as the LightHouse is known provides the opportunity for members to gain workforce skills while being employed in part-time, entry-level jobs at a prevailing wage for six to nine months. Members are trained on the job with clubhouse staff. Demarest mops, sweeps, takes out the garbage and anything else that is needed to keep The Centers in tip-top shape. Nonetheless, the housekeeping position has given back to him. I developed a lot socially, Demarest said. That was my main goal that I had for a long time. Now I am proceeding at a higher level. What I have gotten out of this program the most is the skills I need for another job. And thats exactly the purpose of the program. Most facilities want to treat mental illness, said the LightHouse coordinator Gloria Tucci. Here at the LightHouse, we are looking at what skills and capabilities that someone has and then utilize them. We are looking at the community at large to work with us and embrace the people who are regaining their lives. How can the community help? Tucci said currently they have two businesses that participate in the TEP The Centers and Checkers. She is asking the community to jump on board and give members of the LightHouse a chance. We want to alert businesses that this is an opportunity for them to hire people who really need employment, said Meghan Shay, public relations. Its a fantastic opportunity for employers, because they are guaranteed 100 percent job coverage. Our staff are trained to cover for a member who cannot make it that day. You are guaranteed that someone will be showing up to do that job no matter what. LightHouse staff members are trained along with the employee to ensure that the 100 percent job coverage is provided and they are looking to partner with innovative and community-focused employers. Tucci said the TEP program not only benefits the employer but the employee. Employers receive a hardworking employee with 100 percent job coverage while the employee receives an opportunity to gain skills to re-enter the workforce, she said. For more information about the program, call Gloria Tucci at 352-344-2158.

The Florida Times-Union reported that Harold Bush Walbey III faces up to 57 years in prison and $1.5 million in fines. He was arrested Thursday and declined comment through attorney James Hernandez. An indictment said Walbey took the inmates names and Social Security numbers while working at John E. Goode Pre-Trial Detention Facility. He then ordered debit cards in the inmates names and filed returns for 2010 and 2011. Walbey worked at the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office from August 1992 until February.

Greg Parady sprang into action on Saturday, paying more than $20,000 to cover many items that had been placed on layaway at the store. The owner of Parady Financial Group was at the store to collect bicycles for a Toys-for-Tots charity event. But he warmed the hearts of many before he left. I havent felt like that about a holiday in a long time, said Debra Davis, a Walmart employee who helped Parady go through the layaway records and one by one, pay off, or pay down, the balances. Davis told The Villages Daily Sunthat Paradys generosity resonated through the whole store and is still resonating with employees. In all, Walmart officials said Parady donated money to pay down the accounts of 76 customers. A handful of customers who were at the store had their balances paid in full. Others had their balances paid down. A single mother and a woman who is battling cancer and had almost given up on the hopes of getting a new television were among those helped by Paradys gift. Walmart officials said the financial planner told them about half the money came from his personal credit card. The other half came from his company. Cindy Nazzaro, the managing partner at Parady Financial, told the newspaper shes not surprised by his act of kindness. Ive known him for years and he just does things because he feels like doing them, she said. It brought us all to tears ... and made me realize we work in an awesome community. This is Gregs way of giving back to the community, paying them back for how gracious theyve been to us. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleTim Demarest vacuums the floor at The Centers in Lecanto.

Death penalty for teens slaying Associated PressOCALA A 21-year-old man is heading to death row for his part in the slaying of a Summerfield teenager in April 2011. During a 10-minute hearing on Friday, Circuit Judge David Eddy read the sentence that sends Michael Shane Bargo to death row. He was the last of five defendants to be sentenced in the April 2011 murder of Seath Jackson near Ocala. The other defendants Amber Wright, 17; Kyle Hooper, 19; Charlie Kay Ely, 21; and Justin Soto, 22 were all sentenced to life in prison. The Ocala Star-Bannerreported Bargo now becomes the youngest of Floridas 404 death row inmates. Prosecutors said Jackson was lured to the home where he was beaten, shot and tortured before his body was burned in a backyard fire pit. The teens remains were then placed into three paint buckets and dumped into a limerock pit. Testimony showed bad blood existed between Jackson and Bargo. Bargo was believed to be the triggerman and mastermind behind the plot to kill Jackson. In a recent jailhouse interview with the Star-Banner, Bargo said, Im not crazy, Im not a psycho, Im not a bad person. Bargo told jurors during his trial in August that he wasnt at the home when Jackson was killed and was only an accessory after the fact. The jury recommended the death sentence by a 10-2 vote. During the penalty phase of the trial, the defense presented evidence of a messy separation between his parents that left Bargo angry and bitter. They also suggested that Bargo suffers from seizures in his brain where he becomes unable to control his emotions. The state countered with an expert that disagreed with some of the defenses assessment. They said Bargo was in control of his emotions the night Jackson was killed. Jacksons family wasnt in the courtroom Friday. Bargos father, Michael Bargo Sr., called out I love you son, before he was led from the courtroom. Attorney asks AG to investigate Winston case Associated PressZEPHYRHILLS A lawyer for the woman who accused Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston of sexual assault asked Friday for Floridas attorney general to independently examine the rape investigation, claiming it was riddled with problems. Attorney Patricia Carroll called on the attorney general to investigate the Tallahassee Police Departments handling of the case, saying that detectives failed to interview key witnesses, used unreliable and incomplete forensic tests and never tested the alleged victims blood for the presence of date-rape drugs. However, spokeswoman Jenn Meale said the Attorney Generals Office hadnt yet received a formal request from Carroll. It appears to me to be a complete failure of an investigation of a rape case, Carroll said during the 90minute news conference. The media event came one day before the scheduled announcement of the Heisman Trophy winner. Winston, a 19-year-old who led FSU to a No. 1 ranking and a shot at a national championship, is a favorite to win. Carroll said the Heisman had nothing to do with her clients accusations. Winston redshirted during the 2012 season and was not playing when the woman accused him of rape. Im not focusing on football, she said. Sometimes its not about football. Sometimes its about rape. The lead detective got a search warrant for her clients cellphone and social media accounts but failed to do the same for Winston and his two companions immediately after the accusations were made, Carroll said. Winstons attorney has said any sex between his client and the accuser was consensual. Carroll also criticized Tallahassee Police for not submitting the womans sexual assault kit to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement lab until Jan. 17, 2013 39 days after it was taken. Tallahassee police have defended their handling of the case. Employment program offers second chances Associated PressPatricia Carroll, an attorney representing the family of the accuser in the closed sexual assault investigation involving FSU quarterback Jameis Winston, addresses the media at a news conference on Friday in Zephyrhills.

Billboard announced Friday that the pop crooner is the years top overall artist. The singers year included a No. 1 hit with When I Was Your Man and a top 5 hit with Treasure. His sophomore album, Unorthodox Jukebox, was released late last year and has sold more than 1.8 million units. Its the second best-selling album of the year behind Timberlakes The 20/20 Experience. Taylor Swift is the years top female artist, while Mars is the leading male. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis is the top group and new act. Timberlake ruled the R&B charts, while groups Florida George Line and Imagine Dragons topped the country and rock charts.American Psycho musical looks like a bloody hitLONDON An energetic musical adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis novel American Psycho, about a soulless yuppie serial killer at large in 1980s Manhattan, has opened on stage in London. The show stars Matt Smith, best known as the galaxy-hopping hero of the BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who. The books graphic violence provoked extreme reactions when it was published in 1991. The play, which opened Thursday at the Almeida Theatre, seems unlikely to generate such starkly opposing views, though it did divide critics. The Times of Londons Dominic Maxwell gave it five stars out of five on Friday, calling it a darkly funny, outrageously entertaining evening. But Daily Telegraph critic Charles Spencer found it glib, heartless and pretentious though he predicted: Its going to be a big hit.Beyonce releases new iTunesexclusive albumNEW YORK Beyonce has released her new album in an unconventional way: She announced and dropped it on the same day. The singer released Beyonce exclusively on iTunes early Friday. She mirrors how Jay Z released Magna Carta Holy Grail earlier this year through a deal with Samsung where he gave the album to 1 million users of Galaxy mobile phones days before its official release. Beyonces fifth effort features 14 songs and 17 videos. Jay Z, Drake and Frank Ocean make guest appearances on the album, while the closing track, Blue, features her daughter Blue Ivy. Justin Timberlake co-wrote the songs Rocket and Partition, and Pharrell, Timbaland, Ryan Tedder, Miguel and Sia also co-wrote tracks. The album caused a stir on social media websites, with fans posting about the release early Friday morning. Twitter said early data shows mentions of Beyonce spiked by 500,000plus tweets after she announced the album. Diddy, Alicia Keys and Demi Lovato were among the celebrities tweeting about the topic. Beyonce calls the work a visual album and she filmed some of the videos in Paris, New York, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro and Houston, her hometown. From wire reports Associated PressBruno Mars performs Sept. 21 at IHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. Billboard announced Friday that the pop crooner is the years top overall artist. Mars year included a No. 1 hit with When I Was Your Man and a top 5 hit with Treasure.

Withlacoochee Technical Institute Corrections Academy coordinator Vincent Cruz said that participants donated approxi mately $600 worth of toys to Fridays event. Each time they shot, they had to donate a toy, Cruz said. For roughly $25 worth of toys, a man and woman could compete against one another while giving back to a great cause. The men and women shot at different intervals in distances with two different guns. If they missed the metal target, they were eliminated from the competition. However, if they hit the snowman, they continued on to the next interval. I dont know anyone that is just salivating over one of these prizes, said Austin Fisher, law enforcement recruit class member who won the first round. This is for charity and for fun. Even if they miss, you still see a smile on their face and thats what it is about. At the end of the day there is going to be a lot of children and families blessed by this and we get a day of fun. Sheriffs office Capt. Phil Royal couldnt agree more. Its an annual event that we look forward to every year, Royal said. It benefits Toys for Tots and creates fun interaction for a great cause. The best shooters in each round won various gift cards, prizes and bragging rights; however, the children won the most. Toys for Tots is not just a November and December thing, said Marine Cpl. Clarence Peers from the Beverly Hills Marine Corps League 819. It is a yearlong charity for someone. All toys collected in Citrus County stay in Citrus County. This event means a lot to children around the county.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@ chronicleonline.com.

MARILYNNMARCHIONE AP chief medical writerSAN ANTONIO A novel way to speed the testing of cancer drugs and quickly separate winners from duds has yielded its first big result: an experimental medicine that shows promise against a hard-to-treat form of breast cancer. The method involves studying drugs in small groups of people and using advanced statistical techniques to analyze the results as they come in, instead of waiting for all the data to arrive. Whether the drug, veliparib, ever makes it to market remains to be seen, but it has shown enough potential to advance to final-phase testing aimed at Food and Drug Administration approval. Bringing a new cancer drug to market usually takes more than a decade and tests in thousands of patients, and costs more than $1 billion. Companies cant afford many studies like that, and patients cant wait years for potentially life-saving new medicines, said Don Berry, a biostatistician at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He helped design the novel analytical method discussed Friday at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, an international conference. Researchers testing a drug usually dont see results until theyre all in, to prevent biasing the study. But several years ago, an unusual partnership decided to try a new way. It involves the National Cancer Institute, the FDA, drug companies, dozens of cancer research centers and charitable foundations. The study, called I-SPY2, puts small groups of women on experimental drugs or combinations, then gives them surgery to see what effect the medicines had. The best result is a complete response, where no signs of cancer remain. Each patients results are analyzed as they come in, and advanced statistical methods are used to calculate probabilities that the drug would help in various situations, depending on which women had a complete response. This allows us to learn and adapt from each patient as the study goes on, and results on early participants guide treatment that later ones get, said Dr. Hope Rugo of the University of California, San Francisco. When enough evidence indicates a high probability of success, the drug graduates to finalphase testing. On Friday, Rugo gave results on veliparib, the first of seven drugs being tested. It is made by AbbVie Inc., a North Chicago, Ill., company recently spun off from Abbott Laboratories. It is in a new class of experimental medicines called PARP inhibitors, which target an enzyme cancer relies on to grow. The I-SPY2 testing suggests that adding the chemotherapy drug carboplatin and veliparib to usual chemo before surgery improved outcomes for women with triple negative breast cancer tumors that are not fueled by estrogen, progesterone or the gene that the medicine Herceptin targets. Up to 20percent of breast cancers are this type, and they are more common in young women, blacks and Hispanics, and women with certain breast cancer gene mutations. Researchers were able to determine the drugs potential after tests in only 71 women and just six months of treatment. They calculated that tests of only 300 women with triple negative tumors are needed to give a definitive answer, and that the drug has at least a 90percent probability of success in such patients. If more types of cancer are included, the probability of success drops to 55percent. The results show that we can get early reads on something that is worth pursuing and bail quickly on treatments that dont help, said Dr. Carlos Arteaga of the VanderbiltIngram Comprehensive Cancer Center. Veliparib has now graduated and is eligible for testing in a definitive study. Its not known how long that would take, but it surely would be shorter than the several years that traditional testing requires. FDA officials have said that in certain cases, complete responses can be considered a basis for conditional approval of a drug, as long as follow-up tests are done after the product is on the market to prove that it indeed is improving survival. Last week, another company participating in the I-SPY2 study, Puma Biotechnology Inc., said its experimental drug neratinib had also graduated and would enter a definitive study. Results of the early testing will be presented at a cancer conference next year. The San Antonio meeting is sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research, Baylor College of Medicine and the UT Health Science Center.Marilynn Marchione can be followed at http://twitter.com/ MMarchioneAP Ronald Arnitz, 67PALM HARBORRonald Joseph Arnitz, 67, of Palm Harbor, Fla., (formerly of Clyde, N.Y.) passed away peacefully Dec.8, 2013, at Suncoast Hospice surrounded by his loving family.

US wholesale costs fall for third month on cheap gasWASHINGTON U.S. wholesale prices dropped in November for the third consecutive month, pushed down again by cheaper gasoline and lower home heating oil costs. But excluding volatile energy costs, inflation was mostly stable. The producer price index, which measures prices before they reach the consumer, declined 0.1 percent last month, the Labor Department said Friday. This comes after similar decreases in October and September. Both consumer and wholesale inflation have been running extremely low in the past year. High unemployment and weak wage increases have made it difficult for businesses to raise prices.New daily paper planned for Los AngelesLOS ANGELES The owner of the Orange County Register plans a new daily newspaper in Los Angeles, the boldest step yet in an expansion across Southern California that emphasizes printed publications while others in the industry are focusing on digital. The new seven-day-a-week paper will be known as the Los Angeles Register Freedom Communications CEO Aaron Kushner told The Associated Press on Thursday night, a few hours after announcing the move to his staff in the Orange County Registers newsroom. In addition, Kushner said the Register would open an unspecified number of Los Angeles community weeklies.Plans scrapped to build EuroVegas in SpainMADRID Casino operator Las Vegas Sands on Friday scrapped plans to build a EuroVegas resort near Madrid after the Spanish government rejected as illegal concessions demanded for the investment. The company, led by 80-year-old American tycoon Sheldon Adelson, had proposed a $30 billion project that was to include 12 hotels, six casinos, a convention center, golf courses, theaters, shopping malls, bars and restaurants. The government in Spain, where unemployment stands at 26 percent, had hoped it might create some 260,000 jobs, especially among the young, where unemployment is around 50 percent. But the plan had been fiercely opposed by many who feared the resort would lead to a change in non-smoking laws, promote prostitution and provide only low-paying jobs.Ireland faces more austerity after end of bailoutDUBLIN Irelands finance chief says the countrys exit from its international bailout this week should be celebrated as a eurozone triumph, but wont mean an end to austerity for the debt-battered Irish. On Sunday, Ireland officially ends its reliance on a $93 billion loan program that European governments and the International Monetary Fund provided in 2010 to save the Irish from national bankruptcy. Ireland is the first country in the 17-member eurozone to regain economic sovereignty after a bailout, in contrast to Greece, Cyprus and Portugal. But Finance Minister Michael Noonan told a press conference Friday that investors in new Irish bonds would need to see the country continue to slash spending and deficits through 2015 at least. Ireland has imposed austerity since a 2008 banking crisis.GM gets about $343 million for PSA stakeDETROIT General Motors Co. got about $343 million for its 7 percent stake in French automaker PSA Peugeot Citroen. The Detroit company on Friday said that it completed the private placement sale of 24.8 million PSA shares for 250 million euros. GM bought the PSA stake in March 2012 for $402 million when the companies announced a car-building and purchasing alliance. That means the company will lose about $59 million on the deal.Canadas antitrust regulators scrutinizing GoogleSAN FRANCISCO Government regulators in Canada are poised to open a formal investigation into whether Google is abusing its dominance of the Internet search market to stifle competition and drive up digital advertising prices. Canadas Competition Bureau indicated in a filing made in an Ottawa federal court earlier this week that it suspects that Google Inc. has been breaking the countrys antitrust laws. Regulators are seeking a court order that would require Googles Canadian subsidiary to furnish antitrust investigators with internal company records. Among other things, Canada regulators believe Google has been giving preferential treatment to its own services in its influential search rankings to thwart rivals. Canadas concerns mirror those in an ongoing antitrust investigation into Googles business practices in Europe.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, DECEMBER14, 2013 A7 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,520 1,600 1,680 1,760 1,840 JD JASON 1,760 1,800 1,840 S&P 500Close: 1,775.32 Change: -0.18 (flat) 10 DAYS 14,400 14,800 15,200 15,600 16,000 16,400 JD JASON 15,680 15,900 16,120 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 15,755.36 Change: 15.93 (0.1%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1757 Declined1297 New Highs55 New Lows118 Vol. (in mil.)2,986 Pvs. Volume3,324 1,570 1,823 1489 1035 54 33 NYSE NASD DOW 15792.8015717.9215755.36+15.93+0.10%+20.23% DOW Trans.7113.267066.807086.43+26.94+0.38%+33.54% DOW Util.480.11476.75477.81-0.89-0.19%+5.46% NYSE Comp.9974.109927.509954.84+5.26+0.05%+17.90% NASDAQ4017.453992.294000.98+2.58+0.06%+32.50% S&P5001780.921772.451775.32-0.18-0.01%+24.48% S&P4001293.001284.081289.42+4.26+0.33%+26.36% Wilshire 500018937.8918852.7618893.21+21.34+0.11%+26.00% Russell 20001109.501100.751107.05+3.82+0.34%+30.35% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Open To The Public 237 S. Rock Crusher Rd, Crystal River (352) 330-3800 New And Pre-owned Motor Homes, Fifth Wheels & Travel Trailers Stocks mixed Associated PressThe rally that has driven stocks to record highs paused this week as investors tried to figure out where things are headed next. Stocks were mixed on Friday and posted their second weekly loss in a row. Indexes reached record highs as recently as Monday, but then declined. How come? Investors may be nervous that stocks are overpriced, that stock prices have grown faster than justified by profits. They may be worried about conflict with Iran, or the debate over federal spending. Some are worried the Federal Reserve will decide next week to reduce its economic stimulus, which has boosted stock prices. Its a hiatus, said Frank Fantozzi, CEO of money management firm Planned Financial Services. I really think theres nothing economically wrong. Fantozzi noted that other bull markets have run for seven or eight years and peaked with higher prices compared to profits than what were seeing now. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 15.93 points, or 0.1 percent, to close at 15,755.36. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 0.18 points, or 0.01 percent, to 1,775.32. The Nasdaq composite rose 2.57 points, or 0.06 percent, to 4,000.98. All three indexes fell for the week despite strong reports on employment, housing, and retail spending. Investors have been worried that the stronger the Fed thinks the economy is, the more likely it is to stop buying $85 billion per month in bonds. The purchases have been aimed at keeping interest rates low, which makes it cheaper to borrow. That has sent investors into stocks as they seek higher returns. The big indexes are up 20 percent or more this year. The central banks policymaking committee meets next week and will announce any decisions on Wednesday. Guessing when the stimulus will end has become a parlor game for investors. They are stuck between betting that it will end soon, meaning stocks could decline, versus betting that it will continue, bringing the bull market along with it. Scott L. Wren, a senior equity strategist at Wells Fargo Advisors, believes the Fed will telegraph its intentions well in advance. Since they havent done that yet, it suggests they wont act until the spring, he said. He also thinks the Fed could reduce its stimulus very slowly, easing the pain for financial markets. The Fed wants to err on the side of caution, and not do anything too crazy, he said.

OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2013 Choices matterThis is a letter that will be controversial and will sound mean-spirited, particularly at this time of year, but I think it will present another side of the homeless issue and hopefully cause even one person to realize that we dont go through life being the victim of circumstances and bad luck; we do have a huge amount of influence over our lives. A writer recently stated that the homeless certainly didnt choose to be homeless, and while this is generally true and I suspect that all homeless people would agree with the statement, it is worthwhile to ponder this. Certainly many homeless people are victims of a poor economy, bad health, unfortunate breaks in life, abuses, perhaps bad luck, ineffective parents and a host of other circumstances; however, it would be a disservice to let it go at that. It would not be surprising to find that for each person living a homeless life because of negative conditions one could find another person who suffered and overcame an identical set of conditions. So, one must ask whether a homeless person somehow did not or will not do what needed to be done to offset these conditions. Obviously, in many cases the answer might be that nothing could be done. But not always. Early in life there a lot of things that can be done and decisions made to increase the probability of being homeless later in life. Here is a partial list of steps one can take to increase his or her chances of being homeless: Drop out of school or be a failing student, get pregnant at an early age (or cause a girl to become pregnant), especially when you are young and/or in poor financial straits, be a poor worker (tardy, absent, disrespectful, underperforming, bad attitude), spend money foolishly on things such as body piercings, tattoos, gambling and the like, get involved with drugs, break the law, and a really significant step one might take is to smoke, so that you can spend countless thousands of dollars on tobacco and suffer the consequences of wasted money and bad health. All of these are choices that can freely be made. It is not being honest to leave the homeless or those potentially homeless to go about their business always thinking that they have little or no control over their eventual circumstances. One of the keys is to make the right decisions early in life. You do have a lot of control!Charles Hoke Homosassa For all the regional tensions in American politics, have you ever stopped to think what a boring country this would be without the South? Also without black people, of course, which may be another way of saying the same thing. Would there be any music at all? I was moved to this observation by an almost comically obtuse article on a website called businessinsider.com entitled Southern Sayings That the Rest of America Wont Understand. Purporting to explain a list of the most ridiculous Southern sayings supposedly bewildering to persons outside the region, it mainly revealed its authors cultural naivete. For example, is there a native speaker of English anywhere that doesnt grasp the meaning of You cant make a silk purse out of a sows ear? Nor is the phrase, coined by the 18th-century Irish satirist Jonathan Swift, a Southernism at all. Swift had a way of putting things succinctly. Theres also nothing particularly Southern about phrases like useless as tits on a bull used often by my New Jersey father to describe my lack of facility with hand tools. Only female dairy cows produce milk, the authors solemnly inform us. Male cows are called bulls. And even if you could milk anything with nipples, bulls tend to be rather ornery. You get the feeling they had to look it up. A city guy, my father inherited his store of agricultural metaphors directly from rural Ireland. Indeed, many colloquial expressions mad as a wet hen, is another are more rustic than Southern in origin. The authors of the Business Insider article appear to think nobody outside the South could possibly have any knowledge of barnyard animals. But then, many people think that. My Arkansas neighbor likes to talk about his amazement at meeting country boys like himself in the Army Yankees from Pennsylvania and upstate New York. The expression rode hard and put up wet to describe somebody who looks wasted may be a pure Texanism. But the concept is immediately familiar to anybody who knows that horses need to be walked and groomed after hard exercise. That said, theres definitely something different about the way Southerners use language, although its in danger of disappearing as the nation becomes more suburbanized. Exactly how to characterize it is a tougher question. As a kid growing up in New Jersey, I first heard the siren song of the South on AM radio. Popular music back then had grown formulaic and polite all Patti Page and Perry Como. But not on WNJR in Newark, a station whose rhyming DJs played artists like B.B. King, Jimmy Reed and Little Willie John blues singers with origins in the Deep South and wit and emotional directness unmatched in the Top 40. Well you aint so big, Jimmy Reed sang, You just tall, thats all. Elsewhere on the dial, my basketball jock friends and I started following the great Jerry Wests college career on WWVA out of Wheeling, W. Va. Zeke from Cabin Creek. After the games, theyd play straight-up country music: Don Gibson, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, and the immortal Hank Williams. Somewhere in there, I picked up a taste for bluegrass. On our second date, the Arkansas girl I eventually married went to see Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys at a high school auditorium in Nelson County, Va. It was incredible, like hearing Eric Clapton at a corner bar. Anyway, I wouldnt say it was how the Arkansas girl talked, but that was definitely part of it. Shed ask for a pin when she wanted something to write with. A city girl from Little Rock, she sounded like Huckleberry Finn to me. Prices were high as a cats back. Shed refuse a second helping on the grounds that she was full as a tick. Shed libel her own posterior as too much ham for the sack. Certain expressions were pure Arkansas. To spill something was to tump it over. Something misaligned or out of place was womperjawed. Like the best slang, no translation was ever required. Her mothers deadliest insult was country-come-to-town, to signify, well, a redneck buffoon. I do think theres an innate wisdom and modesty in reminding ourselves how close we are to nature, and how like the animals. That simplicitys the soul of Southern wit.Arkansas Times columnist Gene Lyons is a National Magazine Award winner and coauthor of The Hunting of the President (St. Martins Press, 2000).

Phase 1 of the cleanup at Cedar Cove in Kings Bay was officially completed last week and residents of the area are already enjoying the results. Art Jones and the Kings Bay Rotary Club continued their cleanup effort with the assistance of a $52,000 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). More than 193 tons of Lyngbya was removed from the Cedar Cove section of the bay. Art Jones and the Rotarians have now proven they can even get the federal government involved in the cleanup. The effort was a collaboration of the Rotarians, the City of Crystal River, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the Florida Coastal Management Program and Save Crystal River Inc. The disgusting Lyngbya was pulled from the cove and trucked off to a disposal location. Once the Lyngbya is removed, native plants again have the opportunity to grow and help clean up the polluted water. The results can already be seen. One win-win aspect of the project was that Jones contracted with several homeless people who stay at the Missions and paid them to do the work. The end result is that the bay is cleaner and unemployed residents got the opportunity to earn some much needed money. Several private entities including employees from Duke Energy, workers with the county EMS service and Rotarians also donated their time to help pull the Lyngbya from the water. Sometimes it takes a village to clean up a village and thats what we are seeing in Crystal River. Volunteers are working with state, local, regional and now federal workers and resources to get the job done. Art Jones and the Rotarians have once again proven that if you put a plan together, caring people and organizations will come together to make the improvements happen. Kings Bay is cleaner for their efforts. And for that, we are all grateful. THE ISSUE:Phase 1 at Cedar Cove.OUR OPINION:A plan comes together.

I agree 100 percent with Mr. Bill Watkins letter to the editor. We, the people of Citrus County, paid for that ramp to be built with our tax dollars. The current county administration, starting at the top, is all about themselves and squeezing every last dollar out of each and every one of us. Election time is coming, folks. Remember who raised your taxes and fees.We love to see you studyIm cracking up watching these people protesting at the fast-food places because of their lousy pay. If youd check these people out, youd see that (some) of them were high school dropouts. If they had stayed long enough to graduate, they wouldnt be working at places like this. Theyd be able to find better employment with better pay. Lawyers make excellent pay because they have the education. Same with nurses and engineers, etc. They got the education and they get paid for it. You dont have to go to law school to improve your life, but at least finish high school.Seek helpThe past few months we have heard on the TV news and newspapers about the tragic suicides of teens because of harassment and bullying. Suicide is an act also committed by adults and even seniors in desperation.

1,000 percent agreementIm calling in regards to the letter to the editor from Anna DeRose. The article was Call Christmas by its name, and I 1,000 percent agree that this letter was one of the best Ive ever read. People need to remember what Christmas is and forget all the commercialism. We need to look at one another with love, caring and understanding, not all this me and I want type thing. Its Christs birthday. Be happy and love one another.Get rid of TVI am sick and tired of all the advertisements on television and I hope you are too. All of the commercials are the most stupidest things we have ever come across. What do they think? Us people are so stupid that we need to see these stupid commercials? Oh, Im telling you, television is the worst thing going. Theres nothing on thats good anymore. Its disgusting. Lets get rid of television.Father and sonThis is in answer to a (Dec.3 letter to the editor) written by Anna DeRose, who said were taking God out of everything, but then says that Jesus created us and the Earth and everything else. Didnt she just take God out of anything and everything? Jesus was Gods son; he was not our creator. Would you buy it?Is it ripped, stained, obsolete, a terrible color, a TV that nobody wants? Do not I repeat, do not call the countys thrift stores to be your garbage men. Thats why we have a dump. Grow up and smarten up.Excellent concertOn Sunday afternoon, Dec.1, we attended a Christmas concert performed by the Citrus County Community Chorale at St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Crystal River. The Chorale was wonderfully coordinated with spectacular voices and they must have spent many hours rehearsing to put on such a magnificent concert. Money is raised in this manner to award scholarships. Also, sincere thanks to St. Timothys Church for hosting the concert.Christmas cheerI have to respond to Anna DeRoses letter to the editor. While I prefer a Merry Christmas salutation as well, I also enjoy the holiday season from the piped-in Christmas carols, town parades, endless decorations and homemade cookies for Santa, yes, I love this time of year. Its a time of year when folks can be a little nicer, smile a little brighter, connect with family and friends that we may not have had time for throughout the year. Indeed, celebrating the birth of Christ is a fine time of year.Food is plentyTo the person who thinks they should get more than just food at our various charitable organizations: Are we to house you and feed you and find you jobs? We are volunteers who work long hours to help feed the hungry. Its a hand up for those who are down on their luck temporarily. I suggest you be thankful.Give us peaceIm calling about the letter about turning off cellphones. You have no idea how annoying it is to be in every store and every restaurant and everywhere you go, listening to the stupid things and their stupid rings and people just talking and listening to their conversations and we really dont care to listen to them. Its just gotten so out of control. Back home in New Jersey, in very nice restaurants thered always be a sign on the door to turn your cellphone off. And I wish some of these people would just turn them off just once in a while and give the rest of the world some peace.Poor but overweightI get a kick out of these people on television who say they dont make enough money to feed themselves. Well, they ought to look in the mirror. Theyre 100 pounds overweight. Looks like theyre eating pretty good to me.Dont fly tattered flagsYesterday I saw an American flag flying. It was tattered and torn. If youre flying a flag such as this, please remove it. Men and women have died for your freedom. This is a disgrace to them.Can I have one?One thing that is not good for the future, as far as water conservation goes, is somebody giving away 176,000 gallons of our precious water a day for a yearly $50 pass. And by the way, where do I get in line to get one of them $50 passes so I can use all the water I want? Light thievesId like to warn people who put lights out. I had solar lights all over my yard because I want to preserve our energy, and some person took them all, including the ones that were birds that lights go on and off and so on and so forth. I think its a disgrace that you have to abscond with my effects. It really is terrible. And dont you know the Commandment, Thou shalt not steal? Have a good day, thief.Recycle binCould somebody please tell me where to recycle an older computer?Seek companionshipAgain, Christmas is close at hand and many of us are so alone. I was like that, but now Im at Woodland Terrace of Citrus County where youre never alone. Theres always something going on. And a couple of days ago, they put on a beautiful buffet for the family, friends and parents. That took a lot of work for the Activities Department to arrange, but it turned out beautiful and everyone had a good time. Im very fortunate to be here. Have a safe and happy Christmas. And if youre lonesome, look up Woodland Terrace in your (phonebook). Its a beautiful, loving place.Speckled beautIm setting here reading Thursday, Dec.5s Sports section of the Chronicle and Id just like to comment on that speckled perch picture on page 2. That sure is a beauty and Id like to know where he caught that because Id like to go get some of them speckled perch.Protecting yourself(My) credit card was scammed last month. They caused me to lose my Social Security check and my VA widows pension I get from the VA. How can they stop all this scamming and all these telephone calls that you get? Does anyone know? Id sure appreciate it if you could tell me.

Gunman wounds classmatesCENTENNIAL, Colo. A teenager who may have had a grudge against a teacher opened fire Friday with a shotgun at a suburban Denver high school, wounding two fellow students before killing himself. Quick-thinking students alerted the targeted teacher, who quickly left the building, and police immediately locked down the scene on the eve of the Newtown massacre anniversary. One of the wounded students, a girl, was hospitalized and in serious condition. The other student suffered minor injuries and was expected to be released from the hospital later Friday evening, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said.Airport worker nabbed in bomb plotWICHITA, Kan. A Kansas man prosecutors say sympathized with violent terrorists was arrested Friday as part of an FBI sting after he drove a vehicle loaded with what he thought were explosives to a Wichita airport. Investigators allege Terry Lee Loewen planned to attack Wichitas Mid-Continent Regional airport in a plot aimed at supporting al-Qaida. Loewen, a 58-year-old avionics technician who worked at the airport for Hawker Beechcraft, was arrested before dawn as he tried to drive onto the tarmac. The materials in the car were inert, authorities said.School workers plead not guilty in rape caseSTEUBENVILLE, Ohio Four eastern Ohio school workers entered not guilty pleas Friday to charges stemming from a grand jury investigation into other alleged crimes spurred by the rape of a 16-year-old girl by two high school football players.

April Lee, 28, and Michael Johnson, 32, were arrested last month then freed on bail pending a Dec. 19 hearing in San Jose to answer charges of grand theft, attempted grand theft and extortion, the Los Angeles Daily News reported Wednesday. The man borrowed money from his mother and family, handing the couple nearly $927,000 in two years, according to the criminal complaint. Eventually, Lee even sent the man text messages claiming to be his love interest. The texts said that the two couldnt speak directly because of the curse.

The execution sparked violent protests as activists torched homes and businesses belonging to government supporters, leaving at least three people dead. Ukraine talks give no indication crisis is overKIEV, Ukraine The meeting Friday of Ukraines president and the leaders of mass protests against him was billed as a round table, but it was essentially a square-off. The meeting, which also included Ukraines three former presidents and an array of student, religious and union representatives, gave no indication that the crisis pitting President Viktor Yanukovych against vehement opposition was any closer to resolution after three weeks of demonstrations that have swelled to hundreds of thousands of people. Yanukovych proposed that amnesty be granted to those who have been arrested in the protests and said the measure would be taken up by the parliament next week. But opposition leaders countered with demands that the government step down, and for early parliamentary and presidential elections to be held.Rebels: Islamic militants nabbed our weaponsLONDON Islamic militants have taken control of a cache of machine guns and ammunition intended for Syrias Western-backed rebels, the Syrian opposition confirmed Friday, demanding the weapons be returned. Syrian National Coalition official Monzer Akbik told reporters in London that it still wasnt completely clear how a new alliance of hardline Muslim fighters came to control warehouses containingrebel machine guns and ammunition at the Bab al-Hawa border crossing between Syria and Turkey, but they did. The reality is that the Islamic Front are holding, now, the hardware, he said. They should return it. Despite the incident, Akbik said the opposition was still hoping to include Islamic fighters as part of their delegation to the Geneva peace talks in January. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressA woman and a man hold hands Friday after access to see former South Africa President Nelson Mandela was closed on the third and final day of his casket lying in state in Pretoria, South Africa. Associated PressPYONGYANG, North Korea The execution of North Korean leader Kim Jong Uns uncle brought a swift and violent end to a man long considered the countrys second most powerful figure. But while Jang Song Thaek is now gone, the fallout from his purge is not over. In a stunning reversal of the popular image of Jang as a mentor and father figure guiding young Kim Jong Un as he consolidated power, North Koreas state-run media announced Friday he had been executed, portraying him as a morally corrupt traitor who saw the death of Kims father, Kim Jong Il, in December 2011 as an opportunity to make his own power play. Experts who study the authoritarian country, which closely guards its internal workings from both outsiders and citizens, were divided on whether the sudden turn of events reflected turmoil within the highest levels of power or signaled that Kim Jong Un was consolidating his power in a decisive show of strength. Either way, the purge is an unsettling development for a world that is already wary of Kims unpredictability amid North Koreas attempts to develop nuclear weapons. If he has to go as high as purging and then executing Jang, it tells you that everythings not normal, said Victor Cha, a former senior White House adviser on Asia. The first appearance of the new narrative came out just days ago, when North Korea accused Jang, 67, of corruption, womanizing, gambling and taking drugs. It said hed been eliminated from all his posts. The purge could spread and bring down more people, Cha said. When you take out Jang, youre not taking out just one person youre taking out scores if not hundreds of other people in the system. South Korean intelligence officials said two of Jangs closest aides were executed last month. Jangs removal leaves no clear No. 2 under Kim. News of Jangs execution was trumpeted across the nation by North Koreas state media as a triumph of Kim Jong Un and the ruling party over a traitor worse than a dog who was bent on overthrowing the government. Pyongyang residents crowded around newspapers posted at the capitals main subway station to read the story. Hes like an enemy who dares to be crazy enough to take over power from our party and our leader, said Pak Chang Gil, echoing the medias official line. He got what he deserved. Associated PressPeople watch a live TV news program Thursday showing that North Korean leader Kim Jong Uns uncle Jang Song Thaek, second from right, is escorted by military officers during a trial in Pyongyang, North Korea, at the Seoul Railway Station in Seoul, South Korea. More purges may follow execution in N. Korea Associated PressWASHINGTON The Obama administration faced intensified pressure Friday to find former CIA contractor Robert Levinson both from lawmakers and the Levinson family nearly seven years after he disappeared in Iran during what now has been revealed as an unofficial spy mission. Levinsons family urged the government to step up and take care of one of its own. Members of Congress said they wanted to know more about the case, which led to three veteran analysts being forced out of the agency and seven others being disciplined. Levinson vanished after a March 2007 meeting with an admitted killer on Kish Island, an Iranian resort. For years, the U.S. publicly described him as a private citizen who traveled to the tiny Persian Gulf island on business. But an Associated Press investigation revealed Levinson actually was a contractor working for the CIA, and was paid by a team of agency analysts who were acting without authority to run spy operations to gather intelligence. If he is still alive at age 65, Levinson has been captive longer than any other American known to be held overseas. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Levinson, who retired after 28 years at the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration, was not a U.S. employee at the time of his disappearance. A contractor would not be considered a government employee, but the CIA paid Levinsons family about $120,000, the value of the new contract the agency was preparing for him when he left for Iran, and the government gave the family a $2.5 million annuity, which provides tax-free income, multiple people briefed on the deal said. No one wanted a lawsuit that would air the secret details. Administration faces new pressure over CIA contractor missing in Iran Associated PressPRETORIA, South Africa An estimated 100,000 South Africans lined up in Pretoria to view Nelson Mandela in his casket, but about a third of the overwhelming crowd was sent away without being able to file past the bier. Many of the frustrated mourners fought back tears of disappointment on the third and last day of the revered leaders lying in state. Mandelas coffin was taken away by a military guard to 1 Military Hospital in Pretoria. The anti-apartheid icon will be flown today to his rural home in Qunu, Eastern Cape where he will be buried on Sunday. Hundreds of people cheered and some burst into song when Mandelas cortege left Pretorias Union Buildings, the seat of government, for the last time Friday evening. It was amazing, said Keneilwe Mohapi, who stood with her mother as the impressive motorcade went by. We couldnt ask for a more fitting end. Its an honor to say goodbye to him properly. Were mourning, but Im grateful, the 27-year-old said. Many waited under a hot sun for four or five hours in a line snaking through an open field to busses that would take the lucky ones to see Mandela. I feel like Ive lost a once-in-alifetime opportunity, said 22-yearold student Caiphus Ramushun. Im frustrated because I got so close, he added, saying he was only about 100 people away from making it to the buildings. I spent eight hours in line. I came so close to going on. Instead I was turned away, he said. Mandelas body was on display since Wednesday, with larger crowds trying to view it each day. About 70,000 mourners were able to file past the casket Friday, government spokeswoman Phumla Williams said. But Fridays surge overwhelmed planners, who were not able to move people through security checkpoints and onto buses quickly enough. Officials were handing out water to those waiting. The area where people stood in line was so crowded that it became a city within a city: Entrepreneurs set up barbecue grills and sold Mandela memorabilia, including T-shirts imprinted with his smiling face and words: May he rest in peace. Shortly before Mandelas casket was removed and taken to a nearby military hospital, a crowd of several hundred mourners eager to pay their last respects broke through police barriers and raced up toward the Union Buildings. The people were joyous as they raced toward temporary structure where Mandela was on view in his coffin. No violence erupted as police peacefully brought them back in line, according to an AP reporter. A hundred thousand gather to see Mandela, but many turned away

The Tigers led by 31 points with 1:39 remaining after going 11 for 20 from 3-point range in the Panther gym, and prevailed 89-67 to secure their fifth straight win since a now-ancient 0-2 start. Dunnellon (5-2) improves to 2-0 in the four-team district after handing Citrus its only loss a week ago. The Panthers fall to 5-3 and sit third in the 5A-6 standings at 1-2. DHS jumped ahead 7-2 in the opening minutes, before the Panthers steadied themselves into a 16-14 deficit behind 10 first-quarter points from junior forward Darius Sawyer, who finished with a game-high 25. But it was clearly Desmond Frazier and Dunnellons night, as the elusive 6-foot wingman landed a trio of 3s in the first half in helping his bunch go ahead 36-21 by the break on the heels of a 20-7 second-quarter advantage. The junior paced his Tigers with 21 points and added four steals. (Frazier) is a pretty good player, Lecanto head coach Jeff Anderson said. He was coming off that screen at the top of the key and just draining them. Dunnellon found lots of good looks both behind the arc and at the boards off a variety of potent dishes against a LHS squad thats staked its pride on defense this season under Anderson. Thats a great team, Anderson said of Dunnellon. Theres a reason theyre No. 1 in the district now. They knock down open shots and make the extra pass a very skilled team. They beat us handily. The defense weve stressed all year long, the mindset, wasnt there. Dunnellon had three additional players junior Stacin Bishop (19 points), sophomore Darion Baker (15 points) and junior Will Thomas (12 points) post double-digit in scoring. Thomas had a game-high 10 boards, and Bishop knocked down four 3s over a nine-minute span that covered most of the third quarter. When you make shots, you look good, Dunnellon head coach Travis Licht said. I Citrus overwhelms CR late Pryors 22 points paces Canes in 59-46 district winJON-MICHAELSORACCHI Staff writerINVERNESS When Devin Pryor went to the bench in the second quarter with his third foul, it looked like a bad night was on its way to getting worse for his Citrus boys basketball team. Instead, his cousin Desmond Franklin and senior shooting guard Mitchell Ellis gave the Hurricanes a big boost over the middle part of the contest and Pryor finished it off with a personal 9-0 run late in the fourth quarter to give Citrus a 59-46 victory over District 5A-6 foe Crystal River on Friday night. I came out a little off, well, a lot off, Pryor said. And my cousin Dez said hed hold it down for me and thats what he did. As soon as I got back in, I knew what I had to do and thats put my team back up. Pryor, Franklin and Ellis combined to score all but four of the Hurricanes points: Pryor led the way with 22, while Ellis netted 17 and Franklin added 16. The final score belied the fact that the Pirates played well and were at times better than their Hurricane counterparts. Crystal River knocked down their first three shots of the contest all three pointers to take a 9-2 lead and force Citrus coach Tom Densmore to call a timeout with 5:53 left in the opening period. After Pryor put back a miss by a teammate to cut it to five, Crystal River senior guard Ty Reynolds hit a free throw, a pull-up jumper and a floater in the lane on consecutive possessions to extend the Pirates advantage out to 14-4. Unfortunately for Crystal River (2-6 overall, 0-2 district), the team put in just 17 more points between Reynolds last bucket with 1:41 left in the first quarter to the start of the fourth quarter. They extended their defense in the second half and started challenging those passes, Crystal River head coach Steve Feldman said. Am I disappointed with my teams effort? No, not at all. We played Top of the heap Citrus girls basketball team turns back CR rally in 55-44 district triumph MATT PFIFFNER/ ChronicleCrystal Rivers Megan Wells drives past Haley Martone of Citrus during the first quarter of Friday nights district clash in Cr ystal River. The Hurricanes held off a second-half rally by the Pirates for a 55-44 victory. C.J. RISAK CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER One word: Thats all that was required by each coach to summarize what had happened, and why, in Fridays key 5A-6 girls basketball match-up between Citrus and Crystal River. Timing, was the choice of Citrus coach Dave Hamilton. We were getting key baskets at the right time. Timing was the key thing for us in the first half. Turnovers, was how Crystal Rivers Jason Rodgers would describe the final result, a 55-44 Citrus triumph that, midway through the 5A-6 season, kept the Hurricanes unbeaten in district play. We had too many turnovers, 31 of them. Some of them their defense caused, but bottom line, we didnt take care of the ball. It wasnt necessarily their defense as much as our execution against it. Whichever summary you choose, the result was the same another Citrus victory over the Pirates, the seventh time Rodgers has faced the Hurricanes as Crystal Rivers coach and the seventh straight loss. Citrus is 10-1 overall, 3-0 in 5A-6; the Pirates are 9-2 overall, 2-1 in 5A-6. Although the Hurricanes took the lead for good with 3:10 to go in the first quarter, the outcome wasnt determined until 5:22 remained in the fourth. Thats when Treleasha Simmons was fouled and made one free throw, accounting for Citrus first point of the quarter and increasing its lead to 39-36. But that wasnt the gamechanging event. It was then that Pirates standout Jasmyne Eason went down with a severe leg cramp, bad enough that she had to be helped from the court. When she returned, only 37.5 seconds remained and, in that span, Citrus had outscored Crystal River 14-4. The Hurricanes spent a great deal of their defensive focus on containing Eason, who leads Crystal River in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots.

MISSED FIELD GOALSNone. Fan voices displeasure to Lions wide receiver Associated PressDetroits Nate Burleson tried to get away from his job and give back to the community a day after the Lions blew a 14-0 lead in a 34-20 loss at Philadelphia. But he ran into a disgruntled fan. He had this frown on his face and he was like, Man, you guys are sorry, and said a couple other words I probably couldnt say on camera, Burleson recalled. Initially, my first response was to defend myself and my team and we just started talking. He was just basically saying, Look, you had a 14-point lead and you guys lost. Its the same thing Ive been seeing all the time, every game. The Lions have a loyal fan base despite enjoying one playoff victory since the franchise won the 1957 NFL title, and one postseason appearance this century. After Burlesons first exchange with the man on the way into a local church, he resumed the chat with him 90 minutes later. He said, The only reason Im so mad is Ive been seeing this repeat forever, Burleson added. I said, I get it. Its a rerun. Its the same programming that youve been seeing, but its our job to change that. I said, Give us the opportunity. Right now, were still in the division lead and weve got three games. I told him Id come back in three weeks when we make the playoffs and well have a different conversation. The Lions (7-6) enter the weekend tied with Chicago atop the NFC North, but might start their game Monday night at home against Baltimore (7-6) needing a victory to pull back into a firstplace tie with the Bears. Burleson, in his fourth year in Detroit and 11th in the NFL, said its not the first time he has heard about the franchises losing ways from fans. I get those same conversations when Im in the grocery store, gas station or at the mall, Burleson said. It doesnt matter if youre homeless or you got a million dollars, if you love the Lions and were letting you down, you could feel a certain type of way about tough losses like that.Second CousinsEven though hes starting ahead of Robert Griffin III for the rest of the season, Kirk Cousins doesnt expect to keep the job next year for the Washington Redskins. Ive said it since Ive been here and Ill say it again, I do believe that Robert is the franchise quarterback here in Washington, Cousins said. He was drafted No. 2 overall. A lot of picks were traded to get him. Common sense would say that this is his team, and Ive never wanted to take that away from him or do anything to undermine his role. Cousins was selected three rounds after Griffin last year and won his only start in 2012. Hes getting the nod for the rest of this season, according to coach Mike Shanahan, because of the number of hits Griffin has taken in recent weeks. The expectation has been that Cousins will eventually be trade fodder, and his value would certainly increase with a good performance in the final three games. Whether its here or somewhere else where Im auditioning, that feeling of challenging yourself, being tough on yourself and putting pressure on yourself, I dont think that ever goes away, Cousins said, regardless of the circumstances youre under.Jolly returns to TexasGreen Bays game at Dallas will be the first for Packers defensive tackle Johnny Jolly in Texas since he spent time in prison in his home state on a drug conviction. Jolly was sentenced to six years in prison in November 2011 for possession of codeine in his native Houston. He was released just six months later and will be on probation until 2022. The 30-year-old Jolly was reinstated from a three-year suspension in March and made the roster in training camp. Now hes a starter again, just like in 2008-09. Man, its going to be great, Jolly said. Getting a chance to go home and play in my home state. He missed that chance when the Packers won the 2011 Super Bowl at the $1.2 billion home of the Cowboys. He had twice been charged with possession of codeine, and admitted he was high when he watched the Packers beat Pittsburgh on television. Jolly never doubted he would get another chance, but the former Texas A&M player is grateful nonetheless. I cant even explain it, the feeling that I have, each and every week that I come in and be able to practice and perform on Sundays, the 6-foot-3, 325-pound Jolly said. Most guys dont get a second chance, and Im blessed to have a second chance. The significance of Sunday isnt lost on coach Mike McCarthy either. Texans have a lot of pride, and Johnny has a lot of pride being from Houston and where he grew up and playing at A&M, McCarthy said. This will definitely be a big day for him.Doing it againBengals cornerback Leon Hall knows exactly what to expect in his recovery from a torn Achilles tendon. He did it all just two years ago. Hall tore his right Achilles tendon during a win in Detroit on Oct. 20 and had surgery. Hes following roughly the same rehabilitation schedule he did in 2011, when he tore the left Achilles tendon on Dec. 13 against Pittsburgh. Hes got the cast off and hes in a protective boot. Sometimes with this one you kind of go as the tendon allows you to do, Hall said this week. But for the most part, its going to be the same number of weeks I had in a cast and the same amount of weeks in this boot and so on. There were doubts whether the 29-year-old cornerback would ever be the same after the first injury. He was ready for the start of training camp last year and moved back into his role as top cornerback. He figures the same is possible this time, with a few extra weeks to get ready for the start of training camp next July. I dont see why not, he said. My left one is healed 100 percent, so Im kind of looking at it basically with the same mindset I had on the first one. Hall visits the trainers room nearly every day to get treatment and see teammates. I go into a couple of the meetings every once in a while, just pop my head in there, he said. People are walking around the training room. So you still kind of keep in touch. Youre obviously not spending as much time as you would normally. I get a good amount of time so they still remember my name.New No. 1?Sheldon Richardson doesnt think hed be a member of the New York Jets if teams redid last Aprils NFL draft now. The loquacious rookie defensive tackle went 13th overall to the Jets, but he anticipates hed go a lot higher. And hes not just talking top-10 or top-5. Probably No. 1, most likely, a smiling Richardson said. Kansas City? Yeah. I went into the draft thinking Id be the No. 1 pick. I had a shot. The former Missouri star was never really mentioned in discussions about the top selection, which ended up being Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher. But Richardson is having a high-impact first season, one that has him in the running for Defensive Rookie of the Year. According to the coaches statistics, he has 85 total tackles, including 11 for losses, 3 1/2 sacks and 27 quarterback hurries. I just look at the film, said Rex Ryan, who believes Richardson deserves the rookie award. Base it on production. Productions a huge part of it. Richardson laughed when asked if he thinks the Jets made the correct choice by taking him over Carolinas Star Lotulelei, who was taken one spot after him and also is having a strong rookie year. Most definitely, Richardson said. I still think Im 13, 12 picks late, if you ask me. Just playing. Its all fun and games, and Im glad hes balling, too. Its 13 and 14, and now were both going for Defensive Rookie of the Year. Cant ask for much better than that. Tough crowd for Burleson Associated PressNate Burleson and the Detroit Lions are trying to turn around a franchise that has seen just one playoff victory since 1957. The Lions are tied for the NFC North division lead with three games remaining. Miamis Pouncey makes trip to Boston Associated PressDAVIE Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey confirmed he missed one day of practice to fly to Boston, but he declined to say whether the trip was related to the criminal case there involving his former college teammate, ex-New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Pouncey was served with a grand jury subpoena in the case following the Dolphins game at New England in October. Coincidentally, they play the Patriots again Sunday in Miami. The reason for Pouncey missing practice Wednesday was listed as noninjury by the team. He said he flew back to Miami that night. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-professional football player. Hernandez and Pouncey played together at the University of Florida. Pouncey practiced Friday and said his one-day absence wont affect his performance Sunday. Its something I had to go handle. Im here with my football team, so Im happy, Pouncey said. It would be just like if I was injured (Wednesday) and I didnt practice. Im a veteran on this team now and weve played this defense before. Well be all right. As Pouncey left the locker room, he added: Heres one thing I can tell you about Boston: Its cold. Pouncey hadnt previously missed any practice time because of the subpoena, but he sat out two games in November with a gall bladder illness.Jaguars release veteran DE Jeremy MinceyJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars released veteran defensive end Jeremy Mincey on Friday after he was late for another meeting. Mincey was inactive for two games and fined last month after showing up late. Coach Gus Bradley gave Mincey a chance to get his priorities straight, but Mincey failed to do so, so the coach and general manager Dave Caldwell decided to let him go. Just felt like it was time to move forward, Bradley said. It wasnt one particular thing that caused the reaction. I think it was just a combination of things. Mincey thanked the franchise for giving me the opportunity. You will always have a place in my heart, he posted on his Twitter page. Love, peace and you will be missed. After sitting out two games and vowing to do things right, Mincey returned to the rotation against Houston last week and played 36 snaps. It was his 64th game since joining the Jaguars in 2006. He started 41 of them. Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey plans on playing Sunday after missing time with an injury.Associated Press

It all started on the defensive end, he added. Lecanto is tough to match up with, with (junior Brandon) Burich and Sawyer. I knew if we took care of our defensive assignments, that wed get some looks in transition. Its hard to win (at Lecanto). I like where were at right now, but we have a lot of basketball left to play. Sawyer and Burich (23 points, seven rebounds), who tallied 17 points in the second half, didnt get as much offensive help as the Tiger shooters enjoyed. Outside of those two standouts, no other Panther scored more than three points. As a team, Lecanto missed 21 3pointers and was out-rebounded 3421. In that first half, we were jacking up the ball and all Dunnellon was doing was sagging off of us, Anderson said. We were settling for shots early in our possessions, which is very uncharacteristic of what weve been trying to do. We didnt run our sets well tonight. Usually we shoot very well, and we didnt tonight. Lecanto plays at Williston 8:30 p.m. tonight, while Dunnellon heads to Ocala to take on St. John Lutheran. really well for 3 1/2 quarters. Meanwhile, Franklin and Ellis combined for 21 points in the second and third periods, and a two-possession sequence by Franklin put the Hurricanes on top for good. Two straight times, the Pirates threw lazy passes near halfcourt and in both instances, Franklin stole the ball with a clear path to the hoop and threw down emphatic dunks. The latter, a two-handed rim rattler, put Citrus up 29-27 with at the 3:44 mark of the third quarter. We went to our third different defense of the game, Densmore said. It did give us a little bit of a spark, especially Desmond out there. When Crystal River came out and jumped on us like that, how long did it take us to recover? The Hurricanes (7-1, 2-1) entered the final eight minutes holding a 3931 margin, but the Pirates werent done. Three different times, Crystal River sliced Citrus lead down to four points, the last time on a pair of Tyler Pollard free throws with 4:28 left. Pryor, who spent nearly all of the second quarter and half of the third quarter on the bench with three fouls, stuck in a putback and Ellis swished a pull-up jumper to push it to a 50-42 lead. Reynolds, who finished with a team-high 17 points, slithered into the paint and hit a twisting scoop shot to make it a two-possession contest with just under three minutes remaining. But Pryor wouldnt be denied, scoring four different ways in 86 seconds a driving layup, an offensive rebound, a stepback mid-range jumper and a 3 from the top of the key to bury the Pirates under a 59-44 deficit with 1:16 left in the contest. I think the time he was in foul trouble ended up being to our advantage, Densmore said of Pryor. He came into the game fresh. Citrus senior forward Ben Janicki had 10 rebounds and four blocks for the Hurricanes. Pryor added 8 rebounds as well. For Crystal River, John Hess pulled down 11 rebounds, while Pollard chipped in with 11 points and 5 rebounds. Before the game, Pryor was honored with a game ball commemorating him joining the 1,000-point club for his career. Pryor was the first male Hurricane to hit that mark since Jamaal Galloway and Joel Miller each accomplished the feat during the 2002-03 campaign. Getting this game ball really meant a lot to me, Pryor said. And this being a district game at home, I knew I had to step it up.Jon-Michael Soracchi is the Chronicle sports editor. He can be reached at 352-564-2928 or emailed at jmsoracchi@chronicleonline.com her, Citrus senior Shenelle Toxen said. We worked on that all week. We concentrated on her and then moved fast to the shooters outside. That strategy seemed to work Eason was limited to three points on free throws in the opening half and had eight points in the game, to go with 11 rebounds. Toxen led all scorers, netting 21 points for Citrus. Shally Morales added 13 and Simmons contributed 11. Katelyn Hannigans 13 points paced the Pirates. It was Morales that got the Hurricanes going early, hitting a pair of three-pointers in the games first 90 seconds. Still, Crystal River led 11-9 before Citrus scored four of the quarters final five to take a one-point lead into the second, and a 10-3 run in the first six minutes of that period put the Canes up 23-15. They led 25-18 at the half. Twice in the second half, the Pirates made runs, closing to 35-31 late in the third before a Toxen triple in the closing seconds put Citrus up 38-31 at periods end, and then by scoring the first five of the fourth to make it 38-36 which is when Eason went down. You cant play a team the caliber of Crystal River and concentrate on one player, Hamilton said. When she was on the court (injured in the fourth quarter), we huddled and I said defense would win this game. And it did. At halftime we said defense would win the game, and our defensive timing in the second half did it. Citrus had just 14 turnovers compared to Crystal Rivers 31. CITRUSContinued from Page B1 TOPContinued from Page B1 PANTHERSContinued from Page B1 American Heritage defeats Clay, 66-8ORLANDO Sony Michel and Isaiah McKenzie had three touchdowns apiece as Plantation American Heritage defeated Green Cove Springs Clay, 66-8, in the Florida Class 5A state football championship game. Michel, a running back committed to Georgia, scored on touchdown runs of 5, 1 and 13 yards. He finished the game with 98 yards on 13 carries in about two and a half quarters of work. McKenzie scored on a 3-yard run, 49yard pass and 65-yard punt return. American Heritage (13-1) scored on its first five possessions and took a 40-0 lead at halftime. In the second half the Patriots increased the lead to 59-0 in the first three minutes of the third quarter. Clay (10-5) got a touchdown from quarterback Wes Weeks, who rushed for 74 yards on 14 carries. American Heritage quarterback Torrance Gibson was 9-of-10 for 161 yards and two touchdowns and added 154 rushing yards and another touchdown. Tavares McFadden scored on an 86-yard kickoff return for the Patriots.Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer claims 7A titleORLANDO Alonzo Smith rushed for 219 yards and two touchdowns to lift Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer to a 55-39 victory over Niceville in the Florida Class 7A state football championship game Friday night. Dwyer (15-0) earned its second state championship in four years. Niceville (13-2) led 21-19 at halftime but Dwyer broke things open with 22 points in the third quarter. Johnnie Dixon hauled in a 13-yard touchdown pass from Daniel Parr to give the Panthers a 34-27 lead. The Panthers Trace Batten returned an interception 27 yards to the Niceville 12 and five plays later Gerald Hearns scored from 1-yard out to make it 41-27. Smith closed out the game with a 58yard touchdown run that gave Dwyer a 55-33 lead in the fourth quarter. Parr was 21-of-27 for 236 yards and three touchdowns. Nicevilles Ashton Hooker was 15-of-26 for 245 yards and two touchdowns but threw five interceptions.Klinsmann receives 4-year extension from US SoccerU.S. Soccer wasnt taking any chances of losing Jurgen Klinsmann to another country or club. USSF President Sunil Gulati said Friday the federation broke with tradition by giving him a four-year extension before the World Cup. In part, the federation feared other teams would pursue him after next years tournament in Brazil. There already was talk linking Klinsmann to Switzerland and Englands Tottenham Hotspur. Gulati said the agreement shows a long-term commitment on both sides, and market dynamics dictate some of that. The U.S. is 27-10-7 under Klinsmann and qualified for its seventh straight World Cup. It won this years CONCACAF Gold Cup, the championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean. The Americans set team records this year for wins (16), winning percentage (.761) and winning streak (12).Broncos Miller fined $25K for hit on Titans QBNEW YORK Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has been fined $25,000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick last Sunday. Miller popped Fitzpatrick in the helmet with his facemask, resulting in a penalty that led to a touchdown for the Titans in Tennessees 51-28 loss. The league announced the fine Friday. Chicago wide receiver Brandon Marshall was docked $15,000 for wearing non-approved orange cleats during the Bears win over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night. From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

B4SATURDAY, DECEMBER14, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Defending champs Perry, OHair share lead Two other teams post 64s in alternate-shot play at Shootout Associated PressNAPLES Defending champions Kenny Perry and Sean OHair shot an 8-under 64 in modified alternate-shot play Friday for a share of the first-round lead in the Franklin Templeton Shootout. The teams of Matt Kuchar-Harris English and Charles Howell IIIJustin Leonard also shot 64 on the Ritz Carlton Resorts Tiburon course. The 24 teams will play better ball Saturday and finish with a scramble Sunday. After playing the front nine in 3 under, Perry and OHair birdied Nos. 13-16. It was a fun day for me, said Perry, the Champions Tour player of the year and Charles Schwab Cup points champion. When (OHair) poured it in from about 15 feet on the first hole I knew it was going to be a good day for us. We were never in any trouble. We had a great chance to really go low today and better than 8 under, but thats OK. I mean, alternate shot is a tough format. To me its my favorite format. I love it more than any format of all the three. So, you know, you can lose it. If we get off to a crummy start its hard to catch up with best ball and scramble coming up. Kuchar and English birdied Nos. 12-14 and eagled No. 17. Yeah, it was a lot of fun playing with Harris, Kuchar said. I knew he was on some pretty good form and knew I had a good horse for a partner. English replaced the injured Brandt Snedeker in the field This is a tournament that Ive always watched on TV growing up and it seemed like such a great format and such a good competition, English said. English hit a 6-iron shot from 192 yards to 6 feet to set up the eagle. When you start hitting some good shots and start getting some momentum, you keep rolling and we did a good job of keeping that momentum going on the back nine and making a bunch of birdies and making eagle on 17, English said. Howell and Leonard birdied the final three holes on the front nine and added birdies at Nos. 10, 12, 13, 17 and 18. Today we chose Justin to hit first and that was great for me because he drove it in the fairway every time and I could swing away at it. Howell said. Retief Goosen and Fredik Jacobson shot 67, and Jason Dufner and Dustin Johnson matched Chris DiMarco and Billy Horschel at 68. Tournament host Norman and Jonas Blixt had a 72.Garcia, Rose share lead at Thailand ChampionshipCHONBURI, Thailand Propelled by a hole in one, Sergio Garcia carded a 7-under 65 to share the lead with Justin Rose halfway through the Thailand Championship. Garcia, who finished fourth last year, had a bogey-free round which included an ace on the 236-yard eighth hole. Rose, the U.S. Open champion, followed a birdie on the second hole with a bogey on the third, and came back to sink two birdies and then eagle the 11th for a 68 at Amata Spring Country Club. Their two-round tally was at 11-under 133, two strokes ahead of Anirban Lahiri (64), Alexander Levy (65) and Alex Cejka (71). Rickie Fowler was another shot behind at 8 under, and Henrik Stenson is in a group of four at 7 under.Campillo, Nel shoot 59s in Durban, with preferred liesDURBAN, South Africa Two players shot 59s using preferred lies in the second round of the rain-soaked Nelson Mandela Championship. Jorge Campillo of Spain and Colin Nel of South Africa both reached what is seen as golfs magic number, although the scores wont count as European Tour records, because players were allowed to improve their lies on the sodden Mount Edgecombe course. Campillos two eagles and seven birdies gave him a share of the clubhouse lead on 11-under 129 with Matthew Baldwin (62). Nel had an eagle and nine birdies to move up to a share of 26th. The event was reduced to 54 holes after long weather delays on the first three days. Pacers up home record to 11-0 Associated PressORLANDO Kyrie Irving scored 31 points, Dion Waiters added 21, and the Cleveland Cavaliers used a big second half to earn just their second road victory of the season, 109-100 over the Orlando Magic on Friday night. Waiters had 20 points in the second half and Cleveland outmuscled the Magic 36-30 in the paint. Cleveland has won three straight and five out of six.

Detroit led by 21 early in the third quarter, but the Nets cut the deficit to two before Detroits Kyle Singler made two free throws with 10 seconds left. The Pistons snapped a three-game losing streak and ended Brooklyns three-game winning streak. Drummond, who was shooting 38 percent from the foul line coming into the game and was much worse than that earlier this season went 6 of 8 on free throws. Those shots ended up being crucial. Deron Williams led Brooklyn with 22 points.

The Thunder are unbeaten in 11 home games this season. Los Angeles has lost all three games since the return of Kobe Bryant from a torn Achilles tendon. Bryant had 13 assists just two shy of his career high but showed little of his trademark offensive ability, finishing with four points on 2-of-6 shooting.Spurs 117, Timberwolves 110SAN ANTONIO Tony Parker had 29 points to offset a season-high 42 points from Kevin Love and the San Antonio Spurs rallied for a 117-110 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Associated PressNEW YORK Jameis Winston smiled and laughed, posing for pictures with the other Heisman Trophy finalists and the big bronze statue that he is expected to take home. And when it came time to answer questions from the media on Friday, the Florida State star quarterback did so confidently and without hesitation, even when his protection broke down. Winston and four of the other six Heisman finalists Texas A&Ms Johnny Manziel, Auburns Tre Mason, Boston Colleges Andre Williams and Northern Illinois Jordan Lynch met with reporters at a Midtown Manhattan hotel for short interviews. Alabamas AJ McCarron was in Baltimore accepting another award. Florida State officials tried to limit questions that were even vaguely related to the rape accusation against Winston. The state attorney closed the investigation last week, saying there was not enough evidence to win a conviction. The 19-year-old, who hasnt spoken directly about the details of the investigation, seemed unfazed by the questions that did come his way. He said he was fine remaining silent about the case. I knew I did nothing wrong. I knew I could respect the process and Id eventually be vindicated. It was more about me being silent for my family because I didnt want to put my family in those situations. We had so much respect for Mr. (Tim) Jansen and everything going around and knew I did nothing wrong and everything would be OK. Winston was the only Heisman finalist to show up with his lawyer, Jansen, who strolled in with the Florida State entourage for the media availability. Winston looked like a college student going to class: Black Florida State sweatsuit with garnet trim, and a matching backpack hanging off his shoulders. Winston is the overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman after a sensational season, leading No. 1 Florida State to the national championship game against No. 2 Auburn. But the celebration of his record-breaking performance has been muted by a year-old sexual assault allegation that went from dormant to active last month. The Tallahassee Police gave its finding to prosecutors, who took three weeks to investigate further and decide not to press charges. Documents and reports, including the accusers accounts to police, have been made public. They are lessthan-flattering to Winston. On Friday, the accusers attorney, Patricia Carroll, asked Floridas attorney general to independently examine the rape investigation, claiming it was riddled with problems. A few hours later, Winston was taking questions, mostly about football and the Heisman and being in New York city for the first time. He was asked about dealing with off-field issues and two other questions that were indirectly related to the investigation. It was stressful, but youve got to look forward, he said. Soon after, Florida State sports information director Kerwin Lonzo said: Hes only answering football questions and about the Heisman.

Perhaps the only way it can get better is if he can lead the Midshipmen to their 12th straight win over Army today in Philadelphia. Heisman TrophyPROFILE Bellcow back Associated PressBOSTON Andre Williams had already rushed for more than 2,000 yards heading into Boston Colleges regular-season finale. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was being investigated for sexual assault, and his Heisman Trophy stock was falling. For a few days, it looked like the BC running back might have a chance to bring home college footballs most prestigious individual honor. Then, Florida prosecutors decided not to bring charges against Winston, removing what was seen as the last impediment to his Heisman candidacy. And Williams was injured in the season finale against Syracuse, finishing with 29 yards in the game far short of the almost 190 yards per week he was averaging this season. And that might have been the end of his Heisman chances. I was more worried about how it was going to affect our bowl chances, Williams said this week after he was announced as one of six Heisman finalists to be invited to the award ceremony on Saturday. The only opportunity we really missed is being able to get that eighth win against Syracuse. I really wasnt worried about Heisman polls. The nations leading rusher with 175 yards per game and only the 16th player in FBS history to surpass 2,000 yards in a season, Williams was already at a nearby mall shopping for clothes for the Doak Walker Award ceremony when he learned in a text from associate athletic director Barry Gallup that he was a Heisman finalist. Williams won the Doak Walker, which is given to the nations top running back, on Thursday night. Now, he has a side trip to New York for todays Heisman ceremony. I just feel blessed to have the opportunity to go to the ceremony and be around these other great athletes, Williams said. Whoever wins it, congratulations to them, because its a monumental achievement. There was a time when running backs routinely brought home the Heisman. They won 11 straight from John Cappelletti in 1973 until Boston Colleges Doug Flutie interrupted the streak in 1984. Bo Jackson and Barry Sanders were also good enough to get their names on the trophy along with the quarterbacks and receivers in the 1980s, and four more rushers including Ricky Williams claimed it in the s. But as teams grew more passhappy in the new millennium, the Heisman has been almost exclusively a quarterbacking prize. Only Reggie Bush and Mark Ingram have broken through against a steady stream of quarterbacks 11 in 13 years. Winston is expected to make it 12 of 14 during a season in which he is on pace to break the NCAA record for passer efficiency rating (190.1) and has already set records for yards passing (3,820) and TD passes (38) for a freshman. Williams said he doesnt feel the need to carry the ball for ball-carriers. I love being a running back. I love representing running backs, he said. I dont necessarily think its unfair that its been quarterbacks high up in the Heisman contention lately. That position is hard to play. Its hard to be good at it. With the trend toward teams playing spread offenses and throwing the ball more, thats one of the things behind it. You have to have a good quarterback. But BC coach Steve Addazio said he would like to see the Heisman voters reward Williams, a senior who served as a teaching assistant for freshman seminar and is writing a novel in his spare time. Hes a well-rounded guy, Addazio said. Hes a guy who values and cherishes his education, his opportunity to play major college football, and being part of a team. Hes got a lot of different interests just like a typical college student would have. Hes not just all focused on football. Boston Colleges Williams rushes into Heisman conversation Associated PressBoston College senior running back Andre Williams has rushed for more than 2,000 yards and is a Heisman Trophy finalist. Associated PressPHILADELPHIA The Army-Navy series has long held its lofty spot as sports most patriotic rivalry, with pride, prestige and the Commander-in-Chiefs Trophy at stake for each service academy. Also on the line, Navys 11-game series winning streak, which has turned the annual regular-season finale into one of sports most lopsided rivalries, as well. Navy (7-4) has not only defeated Army 11 straight times, it has won 13 of the last 14 and 14 of 16. Armys (3-8) only wins over the last 16 years came in 2001 and 1998. Navys Ken Niumatalolo is trying to become the second coach in Mids history to start 6-0 against the Black Knights. With a win, Navy would retain the CIC Trophy, awarded to the team with the best record in games among the three service academies, for the second straight season. This is the game we want to win, Niumatalolo said, but we dont talk about the streak. This game usually ends the season for Army. Navy has one more game left against Middle Tennessee (8-4) in the Dec. 30 Armed Forces Bowl at Fort Worth, Texas. Billed as Americas Game, Lincoln Financial Field will be stuffed with Cadets and Midshipmen standing, bouncing and cheering the entire game. Beating Army has become an annual tradition for Navy. None of the Mids want to be associated with a team that ended the streak. Navys 17-13 win last season was the tightest margin since the winning streak started. Unlike previous games over the last decade, the Black Knights were in the game until their final 70-yard drive. Army had driven to the 14 when QB Trent Steelman and fullback Larry Dixon fumbled on a sloppy exchange. Navy recovered and the Midshipmen on the sideline went wild and rushed the field. It was painful, no doubt about that, but in this game, Army coach Rich Ellerson said, youve got to leave this stuff behind. Here are some things to know for the 114th ArmyNavy game. Navy leads the series 57-49-7.Kennedy gameThe 1963 game was the first major college sporting event played after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The game was pushed back a week because of the tragedy. Navy won 21-15 at Philadelphias Municipal Stadium. CBS Sports Network last month aired, Marching On: 1963 Army-Navy Remembered, a film watched by current Midshipmen and Black Knights. I learned really how much it is Americas Game, Army co-captain Michael Kime said. The nation leaned on a bunch of a 21-year-old guys playing football. By no means are we in that dire of stretch right now, but theres a sense of pride in that, definitely.ThrowbackYes, fans can follow todays game on Twitter at @Army_Navy_Game. But the real fun comes in scrolling the feeds timeline and finding its live tweets of the Dec 7, 1963 game. The tweets included everything from scoring summaries, key plays and video highlights of perhaps the most famous game in the series storied history. The tweets also show some things havent changed over the years: Looking to snap a losing streak, QB Rollie Stichweh later talked about the pressure Army faced.Moving onNavy is winding down its time as an independent and will join the American Athletic Conference in 2015. Navy AD Chet Gladchuk said the Mids should still have winning records and bowl bids, even as part of a conference. Those are teams we would play whether we were independent or in the conference, he said. Weve tried to schedule some of those teams in the past and theyve opted not to schedule us. Now, theyll have to play us. Going into the AAC, were not going in to compete, were going in to win it. Navy tries to keep streak going against Army Winston knew he would be vindicated Jameis Winston

B6SATURDAY, DECEMBER14, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Final campaign Crystal River senior tied for team lead in victoriesTONYCASTRO CorrespondentCrystal River senior Nick Hooper shares the same ultimate goal as over 7,000 of his Florida brethren a trip to the 50th FHSAA Wrestling Finals on Feb. 1415 in Lakeland. Nick, who was born in Fort Lauderdale as the youngest of five children to Citrus Springs Bill and Honey Hooper, has one distinct advantage: hes been there and done that. The current 6-foot, 152pound Hooper has always had the physical tools to compete. Once he matriculated to Lecanto High School, he retraced his brother Williams steps to the mats. I remember watching him when I was in fifth-, sixthand seventh-grade, Hooper recalled. I chose to wrestle because Im a really competitive guy and I like to win, he said. And when I started, I found out I was pretty successful at it. On whats kept him on the mats: Wrestling is an individual sport where you can stand out on your own, Hooper noted. And I like competing under pressure. When youre out there its all on your shoulders not anyone elses. Nick immediately noticed the similarities with his brother William. William currently serves as an assistant coach to sixthyear skipper Scot Roberts. We both wrestled in the same weight class, Hooper said. And he was a very offensive-type guy. I tend to be that way too. Hoopers current strength is on his feet. In the neutral position, Im pretty good on my feet, he said. Takedowns are what Im best at. Finishing out matches is whats hes lacking. Ive really focused on takedowns, but Im not much of a finisher, Hooper admitted. Three weeks into the season, Hooper also realizes his cardio isnt at 100 percent. I think my cardio is where it needs to be, but theres always room for improvement. In his first season on the mats, Hooper posted a respectable .500 ledger at 13-13. His seasonal highlights include a pair of wins over Land O Lakes Mike Milillo and Ridgewoods Matt Wishon during the Class 2A, District 7 Tournament at Springstead High at 112 pounds to place fourth and advance to regionals. But in the following weeks Class 2A, Region II Meet, aka The Region of Doom at Avon Park Hooper was shown the door via a 64-second pin and a subsequent technical fall. Following his freshman year, he transferred to Crystal River. His seasonal highlights included going 3-1 and placing third behind a pin over Anclotes Ricky Crawford in the Class 1A, District 8 Tournament at 126 pounds at Fivay. The following week at 1A-II Meet at LakelandTenoroc, he went 3-2 and placed fourth to reach the sports elite stage at the Jenkins Arena inside The Lakeland Civic Center. Hoopers state dreams, however, were short-lived. Tampa-Robinsons David Nguyen dropped him into the losers bracket thanks to a 9-3 decision. Southport-Bozemans Johnathan Kenney concluded Hoopers stay with a 42-second pin in Round 2. He finished the season 21-12. Last winter, Hooper finished second at 132 pounds in the 1A-8 Tourney at Anclote, losing via a pin to Pascos Niko DeAugustino in 3:23. At the following weeks 1A-II Tourney again at Tenoroc, Hooper finished one agonizing victory short of returning to states he was eliminated in the final wrestleback round via a pin by Titusvilles Matthew Seymour. Despite the setback, Hooper concluded his bestever season at 26-10. He enters this weekends Belleview Duals tied for a team-best 11 victories with classmate Justin Burcroff. Hoopers coming off a fine second-place finish at last weekends rugged Brooksville-Kiwanis Invite. In the finals, he tumbled at the hands of Indian Rocks Christians Conner Allshouse, 9-0. Im not OK with second, declared the 18-yearold Hooper. In the finals, my guy did a good job of riding me out. This is the first time Ive placed here. I would have loved to have done better, he added. No one wants to lose when you get to the finals. I feel like I could have been more intense. On his short and longterm goals, Id like to try and get 100 career wins and I definitely want to be at the podium at states, he said. Hooper believes hes improved the most on the mats between the ears. Ive improved the most mentally, noted Hooper. Before a match Im just listening to music. Music blocks out everything, helping me focus at what I have to do. In the practice room, Hooper credits his partner Michael Allen, Hes a state qualifier and he pushes me hard in practice every day, insisted Hooper. So does my brother. Hooper, who carries a 3.2 unweighted and 3.4 weighted grade point average, is unsure of what he wants to study in the future. Id love to go to college and wrestle, he said. Right now, Im undecided as far as a major. In his spare time, Hooper is preparing for wrestling. I have to thank my coaches, my brother and Michael Allen for getting me this far, Hooper said. This weekend is a big deal at Belleview. We want us to be the countys big dog. My individual goal is to be in the state finals. MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleCrystal River senior Nick Hooper, left, has improved his record each year and currently has 11 wins through Thursday. DAVIDPIEKLIK CorrespondentIts 0-0 late in the game when the shot from 18 yards out heads for the top right corner of the goal; a shot hes seen go over his head and in every time before. Theres no chance to think of the past in the second before the ball gets to him. Dakota Gruzdas sizes up the shot, picks his angle and leaps into the night sky. Youre either a hero or a zero on whatever you do, Gruzdas said. As soccer goalkeepers, Gruzdas, Kyle Kidd and Ryan Stevens are the last line of defense for the 24feet long and 8-feet high goal theyve sworn to protect. With hundreds of saves in his three years at Crystal River, Kidds teammates highly regard him. When you have respect from your teammates, that makes you play even harder, Kidd said. Occupying arguably the toughest spot on the pitch, the three are like soccer forensics experts. Knowing a players aiming preference when shooting, what his strong foot is, watching the angle of his hips, even the condition of the pitch if a ball is likely to take a funny hop all come into play. Gruzdas, a sophomore at Citrus, sums it up: This is all going through your mind 100 miles-per-hour as the play is going on. Josh Brown, who splits goalkeeping with Stevens at Lecanto, acknowledges the extra pressure the position brings. (Its) definitely the toughest and most critiqued. If you make a mistake back in the goal, then its a goal. But if someone makes a mistake on the field, then its just another mistake, Brown said. So what separates the average from the truly talented goalies? I almost feel like its more reactions than anything, Kidd offered. Stevens believes its all about positioning, adding, I mean, you can be agile all you want, you can make those super impressive diving saves, but it makes your job a lot better if you have really good positioning. Which leads back to Gruzdas and that leap. Recounting the play, he said with a grin he is vertically impaired heightwise, and has been practicing for such moments on and off the pitch. The shot reaches him at the pinnacle of his perfectly-timed jump, he punches the ball safely over the crossbar and falls back to earth. The crowd roars as Gruzdas gets back to his feet, minutes before his team scores the game-winning goal. I heard a couple of cheers when I stood up, a big smile came across my face as I saw our three defenders coming back to give me a high five and a hug, he remembers. It was a great moment for me and I think it was a great moment for our defenders. Local prep keepers excel in face of adversity SportsBRIEFS Vikings Peterson questionable for game vs. EaglesEDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Adrian Peterson returned to practice Friday for the Minnesota Vikings, but his status for Sundays game against the Philadelphia Eagles is questionable because of a sprained right foot. Peterson practiced after being held out on Wednesday and Thursday. The leagues second-leading rusher with 1,221 yards spent the earlier part of the week in a walking boot. Petersons backup, Toby Gerhart, is dealing with a hamstring injury and is questionable for Minnesota (3-9-1).Jaguars JonesDrew doubtful for Bills gameJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars will likely be without starting running back Maurice JonesDrew and strong safety Johnathan Cyprien on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Both players were listed as doubtful Friday, JonesDrew with a strained hamstring and Cyprien with a thigh injury. Cyprien, a rookie from Florida International, has been in on every defensive snap this season. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley held out a slight hope that one or both players might be ready Sunday. From wire reports Saban signs long-term deal with Bama Associated PressAlabama coach Nick Saban is staying put. The university announced on its Twitter account Friday night that the football coach has reached a long-term agreement to remain with the Crimson Tide. Alabama didnt release terms of the new deal, which must be approved by the board of trustees. Saban received an eight-year deal in March 2012 worth about $5.6 million annually and seems likely to remain college footballs highest-paid coach. The agreement quells speculation that Saban would take over at Texas if Mack Brown steps down. Saban, who turned 62 on Oct. 31, has led the Tide to three national championships in the past four years with no signs of fading from annual contention. The third-ranked Tide was on the verge of another Southeastern Conference, and perhaps national title, before losing 34-28 to No. 2 Auburn in the regularseason finale on a last-play 109yard return of a missed field goal. Alabama will play Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 2 in New Orleans. Saban has said multiple times that hes too old to go someplace else and start over. Im very committed to the University of Alabama, love being here, he said in November. Weve talked about it before. Dont need to talk about it again. But that didnt stop the speculation and rumors that he was bound for Texas amid reports that Brown was on his way out. Brown didnt address his future at Texas at Friday nights annual team banquet, while acknowledging distractions for his team. The Longhorns (8-4) will face Oregon in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30. Brown met with school President Bill Powers and athletic director Steve Patterson before the banquet. Patterson declined to say what was discussed or if any conclusion had been reached. Saban is 74-14 in seven seasons at Alabama, with at least 11 wins in five of the last six years and a string of top-rated recruiting classes. The Tide was trying to become the first team to win three straight national titles since the 1930s. Saban has been mentioned as a candidate for various openings in the NFL and college during his tenure. Thats no surprise given his track record in the college ranks. Saban is the only coach to win four BCS national titles, including the 2003 championship at LSU. He returned to the SEC after going 15-17 in two seasons with the Miami Dolphins. At Texas, several university regents and a former regent were involved in a meeting with Sabans agent last January to gauge the coachs interest in coming to Texas. According to an email detailing that phone meeting and obtained by The Associated Press, Sabans agent, Jimmy Sexton, told Texas representatives that Texas was the only job Saban would leave Alabama for, and that Saban was under special pressure at his current job.Pressure mounting as Brown mulls decisionAUSTIN, Texas The Mack Brown saga at Texas continues even without Nick Saban in the picture any more. In a short, energetic speech at his teams annual banquet, Brown acknowledged the distractions his team faced over rumors and reports that he would be resign or be fired after 16 seasons, but ended only with a plea for his team to beat Oregon in the Alamo Bowl. Brown did not directly address the speculation swirling around his job, but news of Alabamas new contract with Nick Saban, a coach some Texas officials hoped to lure to the Longhorns, rippled through the banquet minutes before Brown gave his speech. Brown gave no indication he plans to step down. His lively speech seemed to lift the somber tone of the banquet and he told new athletic director Steve Patterson that hes looking forward to working with him. Brown lingered long after the banquet was over to chat with recruits and their families.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE About 10 years ago, I attended a seminar for religion writers, How Religion Shapes Regional and Community Identity. A panel of prestigious people with prestigious titles from prestigious institutions and organizations came to talk to us about how in the world we should cover this thing called religion. They talked about how religion affects art and about the phenomenon of megachurches. One person even talked about Elvis as a religious icon, complete with followers who make pilgrimages to the religious-sounding Graceland. The people at the table tossed around words like religiosity and diversity, ritual, heritage and spiritual and discussed demographics and trends and the supermarket mentality of people choosing a religious institution that fits their needs. I remember sitting there thinking that it was all very interesting, in a statistical, intellectual, antiseptic sort of way and utterly devoid of Jesus. I also remember that, despite his obvious exclusion in the program, Jesus showed up anyway, although Im pretty sure the religion experts didnt notice. Jesus came as the man sitting next to me leaned over and said, Im Jewish, but I really like Jesus. Sometimes you encounter people and engage in polite, yet forgettable, chitchat. Other times, God shows up in a big way, right in the middle of your conversation and youre left awe-struck. As the religion experts discussed the new immigrants and the religions they bring with them to America, I asked the man next to me, Tell me about Jesus what do you like about him? His eyes lit up as he said, I like that he got his hands dirty and that he didnt have an ego. It almost makes me cry his selflessness. He added, I dont think Jesus would like this meeting. The man his name was Richard told me he loved the idea of faith and about how, a few weeks earlier for the first time ever, he prayed to Jesus. And he answered! he said. Jesus had touched him in a way he had never been touched before. Then, because hes a journalist, he asked me questions. Do you think Jesus will come back in your lifetime? I said I didnt know. When you see Jesus, do you think youll cry? Yes, Im sure I will, I said. Then he asked me what I thought heaven would be like. I told him I thought we would have really great jobs; maybe God will let us be journalists. Richard added, Without egos and jealousies and competitiveness. I laughed at that time, he and I competed in some of the same writing contests. In between all the religiosity mumbojumbo we had come to listen to, this man and I experienced church. In stark contrast to the careful, Jesus-free talk going on in the conference room, this man unashamedly spoke of Jesus. Not the man upstairs or a generic God, but Jesus. Reverently, passionately, name above all names, Jesus. As the hymn goes, its the name that charms our fears and bids our sorrows Where Jesus fits in the picture Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES RELIGION NOTES The case of Temple Bnai Zion v. City of Sunny Isles Beach and its mayor, Norman Edelcup, makes claims of religious discrimination, government harassment and interference with property rights. The temples president, Rabbi Aaron Lankry, wants to modify the structure formerly a Lutheran church to more properly befit an Orthodox Jewish congregation. The temples lawsuit contends that the city conjured up the historic designation as a pretext to improperly prevent any changes to the temple. And, the lawsuit contends, much of the problem stems from a personal dispute between Lankry, Edelcup and other Jewish members of the city commission who left the temple after he arrived in 2004 as it moved from Conservative to the more strictly observant Orthodox Judaism. Caught in the middle is a separate Orthodox congregation, Beit Rambam, which also worships at the temple and has no issues with the historic designation. Bnai Zion has filed a separate lawsuit against that congregation, claiming it is violating terms of its lease. The main case was originally dismissed by a Miami federal judge, but the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this year overturned that ruling. The appeals judges sent the case back for a decision on the temples claim that the city historic designation was done for discriminatory reasons and interferes with the congregations religious practices. The case is one of several brought by religious organizations See SACRED/ Page C7 See GRACE/ Page C2 Sacred showdown Associated PressAn interior view of of the Beit Rambam Congregation in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla.

Not in the dry esoteric/ ritual and tradition/Power Point presentation Christianity as one of many world religions way that had been discussed in the seminar, but in the awe-struck, Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to Thy cross I cling way. The Jesus, I have nowhere else to go with my sin but to you way. He smiled. A Christian? You think so? he asked. Yes, I think so, I told him. He smiled through the rest of the seminar. Im smiling now as I remember how, without charts and graphs and statistics Jesus simply and quietly showed up in a conference room and entered two strangers conversation, and as religion went on all around them, he brought life in his name. Like Richard, I think I really like Jesus, too. Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

NEWS NOTES My pastor talked last night about how his dad made him do chores as a teenager. I went into my memory bank and remembered standing on a chair to do my fair share of the dishes. I hated it. But I whined my way through it like most children probably do. Somehow I felt if I had to do the dishes on a Sunday night while Disney was on TV, the whole world was against me and unfair to the largest degree I could imagine. I had paper routes from the time I was 12 to 15. Later, I was in high school and we had six kids in our family. The clothing budget for school was very limited. I was embarrassed to wear what my mother was able to buy. I began to get part-time jobs after school to buy my own clothing. I did not fully realize what I was learning. The pride in working for what I was earning honestly. Budgeting and business skills. Usable skills for life. I went to work stocking a hardware store when I was 16 and did that until I graduated high school. In an oldfashioned hardware store, I learned handyman skills that I use to this day. Work is essential to life. Everyone produces something, good or bad. Productive or unproductive. Even though we have to learn how to work, we are meant to work. I have watched the men at the shelter dip into depression when they cant work. Their self-esteem drops. We do our fair share of working our clients on the farm and at our bargain stores but, eventually, people need jobs to support themselves. What it took me years to realize is how long and what it takes for a person to become job ready when life has hammered you. But, I believe to the bottom of my heart that rescue missions across this country, all 300 of them, are Americas best solution for people to go back to work or get new training to find a job in a different field. We are working on an educational committee as you read this and I think The Path is well on its way to helping people to go back to work. To me, it is one of the most distasteful things in life when someone actually wants to work and cannot.DuWayne Sipper is the executive director of The Path of Citrus County, a faith-based homeless shelter.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER14, 2013 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.George Bernard Shaw said, A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. At the bridge table, we make a lot of mistakes. But with luck, as we gain experience, we make fewer of them. This week, we have been handling the trump suit. Here is one last example lets get it right! West leads the diamond king against six spades. How should declarer plan the play? The South hand is very honorable, with, in Chicago and rubber-bridge scoring, 150 in aces and 150 in spades. It also has 11 winners. Can partner produce an extra trick or two? In this auction, Souths jump to three spades showed a solid suit, set that suit as trumps, and asked partner if he had anything. Norths raise to four spades denied an ace or a king. Souths leap to six spades was understandable, although risky with those two losing diamonds. South must discard one diamond from the dummy on his third top heart and ruff his last diamond in the dummy. He wins with his diamond ace, cashes the three top hearts, and exits with a diamond. He takes the next trick and ruffs his last diamond with dummys spade eight, so theres no risk of an overruff. Then he draws trumps and claims. Finally, note that this is one deal in which the very bad trump split was lucky. If West had been able to lead a trump, and the defender who took the diamond trick could have led another trump, the slam would have failed.

You rightfully suggested she talk to her doctor to see whether there is something they could do to remedy the problem. However, when you write that intimacy is important, but it isnt everything, I think youve missed the point about sexless marriage: Its entirely possible to be in a committed relationship without sex, but its incredibly important to keep the intimacy alive in other ways. People sometimes identify the act of sex as the only validation of love and caring between a couple, but there are other love acts that have a bigger impact on a relationship, like hugging and touching and kissing. My husbands libido took a nosedive several years ago, and it was a rough period for me because I am 13 years younger and had just hit my sexual prime. It took some adjusting of mindset, but when I realized that the other good stuff wasnt going out the window, things suddenly werent as bad as I thought. I do miss the incredible intimacy that sex brings, but I also love the fact that I get sweet, sometimes passionate kisses. Then theres the romantic act of hand-holding (even in public!) and hugging. And that makes all the difference. So, Frustrated, find different ways to enjoy that intimacy with your wife. Learning Curve Dear Learning: We agree that there are many ways to show intimacy, but it requires the cooperation of both partners. Our readers had a lot to say on this subject. Read on for more: From New York: Perhaps Frustrated could suggest to his wife that one-way pleasure is a possible, if occasional, solution to their mismatched libidos. If you love someone, you can enjoy giving pleasure without expecting anything in return. Boston: My wife and I were experiencing the lack of desire for frequent intimacy until we went to a homeopathic practitioner and received supplements to her diet that corrected some hormone levels. Happily, one of the benefits was improved libido, and we are now happy, happy, happy. Florida: Frustrated complains that he has sex with his extremely attractive wife maybe once every two weeks. I say: What are you complaining about? There are far too many of us on the opposite end of the spectrum who would gladly trade places with him. Im 45, shes 43 and still hot, but its been years since weve had sex. Ive tried everything except couples counseling (she wont go). Im in decent physical shape, have a well-paying job and do my share in taking care of the children and the house. However, all romance, intimacy, handholding, kissing and physical contact are initiated by me and are rebuffed too often for me to make further attempts. Apparently, watching 15 hours of television every week is more important to her than an hour of intimacy once a month. Texas: Agreed, intimacy isnt everything. However, I believe intimacy is the foundation of a marriage and should not be minimized. I feel his pain. My relationship with my wife of 30 years is very similar. My advice is: If this is a deal breaker, then divorce is the only real answer. Rejection from the wife you love and cherish is beyond painful. You can concentrate on the many other good qualities in your relationship, but the sad reality is, it can be empty and unfulfilling without intimacy. Intimacy starts at the kitchen table or maybe with a phone conversation. A connection must be made. Counting how many times in a month you have sex is not intimacy.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

The law bars state and local governments from imposing a substantial burden through land use regulations on the free exercise of religion, unless the government can show it has a compelling interest. The U.S. Supreme Court has never defined substantial burden in these types of cases, leading to different rulings in different parts of the country. In South Florida, Bnai Zion attorney Daniel Wallach said Lankry has one overarching goal in pursuing the lawsuit, originally filed in 2010. He wants the historic designation removed from the property. It inhibits the temples growth. It reduces the value of the property, Wallach said. That is a burden on his property rights. Former Miami U.S. Attorney Kendall Coffey, who represents Sunny Isles Beach and its mayor, said rather than religious freedom, the major concern of Bnai Zion is how the historic designation affects the propertys value. Coffey noted that Edelcup and several other city officials involved in the decision are also Jewish. They are alleging anti-Jewish discrimination on the part of public officials, the vast majority of whom are Jewish, Coffey said. Its far-fetched, although the plaintiff (Bnai Zion) has an obvious financial motive. Sunny Isles Beach is a small seaside city northeast of Miami with about 21,000 residents. Founded less than a century ago, it has only one property designated as historic: the Bnai Zion temple. The citys preservation board has left out some other buildings that might be considered in that category, such as the 67-year-old Golden Strand Hotel where baseball slugger Babe Ruth once lived and which hosted celebrities such as Burt Lancaster, Grace Kelly and Gary Cooper. Other buildings on its Motel Row at times hosted the Beatles, Ray Charles and Ike and Tina Turner, among others. The temple purchased its current property in 1977 from a Lutheran church, removed Christian symbolism such as the stained glass and minimized the crossshaped design of the sanctuary. A cross atop a front tower was replaced with a Star of David. The preservation board twice before considered whether to designate the temple as historic, but the proposal was discarded both times. As its congregation grew, Bnai Zion applied for new building permits that included demolishing the main building. Those were rejected, and the city hired a historic preservation consultant to determine if the temple could meet historic criteria. Meanwhile, according to the temples lawsuit, the city issued 12 code enforcement citations against Bnai Zion over a 16-month period for such things as improper wiring and unsightly objects on the temple property. The city has embarked on a relentless campaign of harassment against the temple, the lawsuit says. Court documents recount several contentious meetings between Lankry and Edelcup, including one occasion when the mayor allegedly referred to Bnai Zion members as a bunch of pigs. The rabbi was later accused during a public meeting of calling a Jewish city commissioner an anti-Semite. The historic preservation consultants report, delivered in 2010, recommended the temple as a historic site because of the 2004 gathering of about 300 Holocaust survivors in one of its buildings, even though other such gatherings had been held elsewhere. The preservation board approved the recommendation for the temple sanctuary, an outer tower and its portico meaning none of those structures could be altered or demolished. The city fastened the historic plaque on the church shortly after the vote. One Sunny Isles Beach commissioner, George Bud Schull, said at a 2010 meeting that the city was making a mistake. The core issue is, are we going to burden somebodys property rights and take something away from them over some arguments that I think are a little flimsy, personally? he said. I dont really buy into the veracity of these arguments. Still, the historic designation was approved and the current lengthy court battle has followed. Left in limbo is the current congregation of about 100 families leasing the property, Beit Rambam. That groups attorney, Philippe Lieberman, said they are fighting eviction and are fine with leaving the temple as it is, historic designation included. My client enjoys the premises, wants to stay at the premises, wants to worship there, he said. Were happy there. The case is currently before U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams, who has set a December 2014 trial date. The two sides are currently in mediation, under the judges orders, to try and work out a solution. The mediator, also Jewish, is handling the case for free in hopes the two sides can reach an accord.RELIGIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, DECEMBER14, 2013 C7 Fax: (352) 563-5665 l Toll Free: (888) 852-2340 l Email: classifieds@chronicleonline.com l website: www.chronicleonline.com To place an ad, call563-5966 Chronicle ClassifiedsClassifieds In Print and Online All The Time699186 000GT1N 000GT1J Todays New Ads Jazzy Electric Wheel Chair, Model 1170XL Like new, $700. make offer (352) 621-5340 JEWELRYARMOIRE Mahogany, 40 inches tall.

MARIACHENG AP medical writerLONDON He may have a license to kill, but is he sober enough to shoot? British doctors who carefully read Ian Flemings series of James Bond novels say the celebrated spy regularly drank more than four times the recommended limit of alcohol per week. Their research was published in the lighthearted Christmas edition of the medical journal BMJ on Thursday. Dr. Patrick Davies and colleagues at Nottingham University Hospital analyzed 14 James Bond books and documented every drink Bond had. They also noted days when he was unable to drink, such as when he was hospitalized, in rehab or imprisoned. The academics found that the spy also known as 007 drank about 92 units of alcohol a week; more than four times the safe amount recommended by the British government. One unit is about eight grams of pure alcohol. A pint of beer has three units of alcohol, about the same as a large glass of wine. Bonds drinking habits put him at high risk for numerous alcoholrelated diseases and an early alcohol-related death, the authors write. The level of functioning as displayed in the books is inconsistent with the physical, mental and indeed sexual functioning expected from someone drinking this much alcohol, the authors conclude. Davies and colleagues also suspect Bonds trademark order that his martinis be shaken, not stirred may have been because he had an alcoholinduced tremor. They noted his biggest daily drinking binge was in the book From Russia with Love, when he downed nearly 50 units of alcohol. They also suspected alcohol may have been a factor in Casino Royale, when he knocked back 39 units before getting into a high-speed car chase, lost control and crashed the car. The authors recognized that Bonds high-stress job may have also driven him over the edge. Although we appreciate the societal pressures to consume alcohol when working with international terrorists and high-stakes gamblers, we would advise Bond be referred for further assessment of his alcohol intake, they concluded.

Race boats slated at Lake Hernando PATFAHERTY Staff writerAn exhibition powerboat event is scheduled for Jan.4 on Lake Hernando, which could be a prelude to a major race on the lake in September. The U.S. Formula1 Powerboat Tour will have a day of demo and exhibition runs to get the feel of the lake, showcase the sport and generate support for hosting its 2014 championship weekend. Adam Thomas, interim tourism director, introduced the idea in October and this week the Tourism Development Council approved spending up to $1,000 for related costs. Thomas is working with the chamber of commerce to attract sponsors for the September event, which would cost about $45,000 to bring to Citrus County. According to its news release, the Powerboat Tour has a high expectation of Formula1 racing returning to the state of Florida in 2014.

continuous searches of a much-needed Florida race site, we think Lake Hernando and Citrus County are a perfect match not only for a water-based event, but a Formula1 race, said Jose Mendana Jr., president of the U.S. Formula 1 Powerboat Tour. Not only is Lake Hernando a perfect race site for our tour, we are really thrilled to launch a Formula1 Championship Weekend program, which we plan to turn into annual tradition for many years to come. We are looking forward to our test day to show what Formula 1 racing can and will bring to the county as well as a preview of the up-close action the fans in the area will get to see come next September. Four boats are scheduled to participate in the exhibition. The days events will include an open test session for the four teams followed by simulated match races and a 10-lap final. Formula1 powerboat racing uses tunnel-hull catamarans capable of both high speed and exceptional maneuverability. Overall, the boats must weigh 1,150pounds with driver. The boats are up to 17feet long and 7feet wide, keeping weight low through extensive use of carbon fiber and Kevlar. The boats are powered by Mercury Marine V6 two-stroke and OMC Johnson V8 motors that generate more than 400 horsepower and can propel the boats to 100 mph in less than 3seconds and to a maximum speed of more than 135mph. The Saturday, Jan.4, event is free and open to the public, with on-water activity scheduled to start at 11a.m. and end at 2:30p.m. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.

Mastracchio, an experienced spacewalker, said hes more than ready to go out and make repairs, if deemed necessary by Mission Control. Any time you have something like this, its good news, bad news, Mastracchio told The Associated Press on Friday. Of course, the bad news is the stations having problems and we have to go out and do a repair. The good news is we have the spare parts. We have the training. We have the skills and, of course, going out and doing a spacewalk is always very exciting yet very challenging. One of two cooling loops on the space station shut down Wednesday after it got too cold. Flight controllers suspect a bad valve inside an external pump. Its a serious situation that needs to be remedied quickly, officials said, in case there are additional failures. On Friday, engineers in Houston spent a third day working on the issue. They want to see if they can solve the problem remotely, before ordering up a series of spacewalks to replace the entire pump. Three spacewalks were required to install this pump in 2010. The space station cooling system uses ammonia to dissipate heat generated by on-board equipment. The six astronauts have turned off all nonessential equipment to reduce the heat load, including some science experiments. Thats resulted in extra free time for Mastracchio and his U.S., Japanese and Russian crewmates. Otherwise, life has not changed much a couple of hundred miles up, he noted. We still have lights. We still have the toilet working. We still have food, and were still very comfortable up here, Mastracchio said. So the biggest problem is that were just not taking the time during our schedule to do as much science as we normally would. An upcoming delivery mission may be delayed because of the cooling system trouble. The commercial Cygnus capsule, currently scheduled for a Wednesday launch from Wallops Island, Va., almost certainly holds holiday surprises for the astronauts, along with the usual stash of supplies. At least Mastracchio doesnt have to cram in any last-minute Christmas shopping, using the space stations Internet phone or online capability. The 53year-old engineer said he bought presents for his wife before he rocketed into orbit at the beginning of November for a sixmonth mission. Being away from your friends and family during the holidays is not optimal, he told the AP. But if you have to be away from your family on Christmas, then this is sure not a bad place to be. And children, stay tuned. Were always on the lookout for Santa up here, Mastracchio said with a smile. Associated PressThe International Space Station is shown May23, 2010, with the backdrop of Earth. On Thursday, astronauts aboard the station dimmed the lights, turned off unnecessary equipment and put off science work as NASA scrambled to figure out whats wrong with one of two identical cooling loops that shut down Wednesday.

ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerINVERNESS Life wasnt always so pleasant and enjoyable for Tim Demarest. My life was bad before I became a member of the LightHouse, Demarest said. However, he has had a change of life and is working three days a week with a smile on his face and fulfillment in his heart. My life has completely changed because of the LightHouse and the Transitional Employment Program, Demarest said. Demarest works part time housekeeping at The Centers in Lecanto as part of his Transitional Employment Program (TEP) at the LightHouse in Inverness. The LightHouse, in conjunction with The Centers, provides mental health and substance abuse support. The TEP component of the clubhouse as the LightHouse is known provides the opportunity for members to gain workforce skills while being employed in part-time, entry-level jobs at a prevailing wage for six to nine months. Members are trained on the job with clubhouse staff. Demarest mops, sweeps, takes out the garbage and anything else that is needed to keep The Centers in tip-top shape. Nonetheless, the housekeeping position has given back to him. I developed a lot socially, Demarest said. That was my main goal that I had for a long time. Now I am proceeding at a higher level. What I have gotten out of this program the most is the skills I need for another job. And thats exactly the purpose of the program. Most facilities want to treat mental illness, said the LightHouse coordinator Gloria Tucci. Here at the LightHouse, we are looking at what skills and capabilities that someone has and then utilize them. We are looking at the community at large to work with us and embrace the people who are regaining their lives. How can the community help? Tucci said currently they have two businesses that participate in the TEP The Centers and Checkers. She is asking the community to jump on board and give members of the LightHouse a chance. We want to alert businesses that this is an opportunity for them to hire people who really need employment, said Meghan Shay, public relations. Its a fantastic opportunity for employers, because they are guaranteed 100 percent job coverage. Our staff are trained to cover for a member who cannot make it that day. You are guaranteed that someone will be showing up to do that job no matter what. LightHouse staff members are trained along with the employee to ensure that the 100 percent job coverage is provided and they are looking to partner with innovative and community-focused employers. Tucci said the TEP program not only benefits the employer but the employee. Employers receive a hardworking employee with 100 percent job coverage while the employee receives an opportunity to gain skills to re-enter the workforce, she said. For more information about the program, call Gloria Tucci at 352-344-2158.

The Florida Times-Union reported that Harold Bush Walbey III faces up to 57 years in prison and $1.5 million in fines. He was arrested Thursday and declined comment through attorney James Hernandez. An indictment said Walbey took the inmates names and Social Security numbers while working at John E. Goode Pre-Trial Detention Facility. He then ordered debit cards in the inmates names and filed returns for 2010 and 2011. Walbey worked at the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office from August 1992 until February.

Greg Parady sprang into action on Saturday, paying more than $20,000 to cover many items that had been placed on layaway at the store. The owner of Parady Financial Group was at the store to collect bicycles for a Toys-for-Tots charity event. But he warmed the hearts of many before he left. I havent felt like that about a holiday in a long time, said Debra Davis, a Walmart employee who helped Parady go through the layaway records and one by one, pay off, or pay down, the balances. Davis told The Villages Daily Sunthat Paradys generosity resonated through the whole store and is still resonating with employees. In all, Walmart officials said Parady donated money to pay down the accounts of 76 customers. A handful of customers who were at the store had their balances paid in full. Others had their balances paid down. A single mother and a woman who is battling cancer and had almost given up on the hopes of getting a new television were among those helped by Paradys gift. Walmart officials said the financial planner told them about half the money came from his personal credit card. The other half came from his company. Cindy Nazzaro, the managing partner at Parady Financial, told the newspaper shes not surprised by his act of kindness. Ive known him for years and he just does things because he feels like doing them, she said. It brought us all to tears ... and made me realize we work in an awesome community. This is Gregs way of giving back to the community, paying them back for how gracious theyve been to us. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleTim Demarest vacuums the floor at The Centers in Lecanto.

Death penalty for teens slaying Associated PressOCALA A 21-year-old man is heading to death row for his part in the slaying of a Summerfield teenager in April 2011. During a 10-minute hearing on Friday, Circuit Judge David Eddy read the sentence that sends Michael Shane Bargo to death row. He was the last of five defendants to be sentenced in the April 2011 murder of Seath Jackson near Ocala. The other defendants Amber Wright, 17; Kyle Hooper, 19; Charlie Kay Ely, 21; and Justin Soto, 22 were all sentenced to life in prison. The Ocala Star-Bannerreported Bargo now becomes the youngest of Floridas 404 death row inmates. Prosecutors said Jackson was lured to the home where he was beaten, shot and tortured before his body was burned in a backyard fire pit. The teens remains were then placed into three paint buckets and dumped into a limerock pit. Testimony showed bad blood existed between Jackson and Bargo. Bargo was believed to be the triggerman and mastermind behind the plot to kill Jackson. In a recent jailhouse interview with the Star-Banner, Bargo said, Im not crazy, Im not a psycho, Im not a bad person. Bargo told jurors during his trial in August that he wasnt at the home when Jackson was killed and was only an accessory after the fact. The jury recommended the death sentence by a 10-2 vote. During the penalty phase of the trial, the defense presented evidence of a messy separation between his parents that left Bargo angry and bitter. They also suggested that Bargo suffers from seizures in his brain where he becomes unable to control his emotions. The state countered with an expert that disagreed with some of the defenses assessment. They said Bargo was in control of his emotions the night Jackson was killed. Jacksons family wasnt in the courtroom Friday. Bargos father, Michael Bargo Sr., called out I love you son, before he was led from the courtroom. Attorney asks AG to investigate Winston case Associated PressZEPHYRHILLS A lawyer for the woman who accused Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston of sexual assault asked Friday for Floridas attorney general to independently examine the rape investigation, claiming it was riddled with problems. Attorney Patricia Carroll called on the attorney general to investigate the Tallahassee Police Departments handling of the case, saying that detectives failed to interview key witnesses, used unreliable and incomplete forensic tests and never tested the alleged victims blood for the presence of date-rape drugs. However, spokeswoman Jenn Meale said the Attorney Generals Office hadnt yet received a formal request from Carroll. It appears to me to be a complete failure of an investigation of a rape case, Carroll said during the 90minute news conference. The media event came one day before the scheduled announcement of the Heisman Trophy winner. Winston, a 19-year-old who led FSU to a No. 1 ranking and a shot at a national championship, is a favorite to win. Carroll said the Heisman had nothing to do with her clients accusations. Winston redshirted during the 2012 season and was not playing when the woman accused him of rape. Im not focusing on football, she said. Sometimes its not about football. Sometimes its about rape. The lead detective got a search warrant for her clients cellphone and social media accounts but failed to do the same for Winston and his two companions immediately after the accusations were made, Carroll said. Winstons attorney has said any sex between his client and the accuser was consensual. Carroll also criticized Tallahassee Police for not submitting the womans sexual assault kit to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement lab until Jan. 17, 2013 39 days after it was taken. Tallahassee police have defended their handling of the case. Employment program offers second chances Associated PressPatricia Carroll, an attorney representing the family of the accuser in the closed sexual assault investigation involving FSU quarterback Jameis Winston, addresses the media at a news conference on Friday in Zephyrhills.

Billboard announced Friday that the pop crooner is the years top overall artist. The singers year included a No. 1 hit with When I Was Your Man and a top 5 hit with Treasure. His sophomore album, Unorthodox Jukebox, was released late last year and has sold more than 1.8 million units. Its the second best-selling album of the year behind Timberlakes The 20/20 Experience. Taylor Swift is the years top female artist, while Mars is the leading male. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis is the top group and new act. Timberlake ruled the R&B charts, while groups Florida George Line and Imagine Dragons topped the country and rock charts.American Psycho musical looks like a bloody hitLONDON An energetic musical adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis novel American Psycho, about a soulless yuppie serial killer at large in 1980s Manhattan, has opened on stage in London. The show stars Matt Smith, best known as the galaxy-hopping hero of the BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who. The books graphic violence provoked extreme reactions when it was published in 1991. The play, which opened Thursday at the Almeida Theatre, seems unlikely to generate such starkly opposing views, though it did divide critics. The Times of Londons Dominic Maxwell gave it five stars out of five on Friday, calling it a darkly funny, outrageously entertaining evening. But Daily Telegraph critic Charles Spencer found it glib, heartless and pretentious though he predicted: Its going to be a big hit.Beyonce releases new iTunesexclusive albumNEW YORK Beyonce has released her new album in an unconventional way: She announced and dropped it on the same day. The singer released Beyonce exclusively on iTunes early Friday. She mirrors how Jay Z released Magna Carta Holy Grail earlier this year through a deal with Samsung where he gave the album to 1 million users of Galaxy mobile phones days before its official release. Beyonces fifth effort features 14 songs and 17 videos. Jay Z, Drake and Frank Ocean make guest appearances on the album, while the closing track, Blue, features her daughter Blue Ivy. Justin Timberlake co-wrote the songs Rocket and Partition, and Pharrell, Timbaland, Ryan Tedder, Miguel and Sia also co-wrote tracks. The album caused a stir on social media websites, with fans posting about the release early Friday morning. Twitter said early data shows mentions of Beyonce spiked by 500,000plus tweets after she announced the album. Diddy, Alicia Keys and Demi Lovato were among the celebrities tweeting about the topic. Beyonce calls the work a visual album and she filmed some of the videos in Paris, New York, Sydney, Rio de Janeiro and Houston, her hometown. From wire reports Associated PressBruno Mars performs Sept. 21 at IHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. Billboard announced Friday that the pop crooner is the years top overall artist. Mars year included a No. 1 hit with When I Was Your Man and a top 5 hit with Treasure.

Withlacoochee Technical Institute Corrections Academy coordinator Vincent Cruz said that participants donated approxi mately $600 worth of toys to Fridays event. Each time they shot, they had to donate a toy, Cruz said. For roughly $25 worth of toys, a man and woman could compete against one another while giving back to a great cause. The men and women shot at different intervals in distances with two different guns. If they missed the metal target, they were eliminated from the competition. However, if they hit the snowman, they continued on to the next interval. I dont know anyone that is just salivating over one of these prizes, said Austin Fisher, law enforcement recruit class member who won the first round. This is for charity and for fun. Even if they miss, you still see a smile on their face and thats what it is about. At the end of the day there is going to be a lot of children and families blessed by this and we get a day of fun. Sheriffs office Capt. Phil Royal couldnt agree more. Its an annual event that we look forward to every year, Royal said. It benefits Toys for Tots and creates fun interaction for a great cause. The best shooters in each round won various gift cards, prizes and bragging rights; however, the children won the most. Toys for Tots is not just a November and December thing, said Marine Cpl. Clarence Peers from the Beverly Hills Marine Corps League 819. It is a yearlong charity for someone. All toys collected in Citrus County stay in Citrus County. This event means a lot to children around the county.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@ chronicleonline.com.

MARILYNNMARCHIONE AP chief medical writerSAN ANTONIO A novel way to speed the testing of cancer drugs and quickly separate winners from duds has yielded its first big result: an experimental medicine that shows promise against a hard-to-treat form of breast cancer. The method involves studying drugs in small groups of people and using advanced statistical techniques to analyze the results as they come in, instead of waiting for all the data to arrive. Whether the drug, veliparib, ever makes it to market remains to be seen, but it has shown enough potential to advance to final-phase testing aimed at Food and Drug Administration approval. Bringing a new cancer drug to market usually takes more than a decade and tests in thousands of patients, and costs more than $1 billion. Companies cant afford many studies like that, and patients cant wait years for potentially life-saving new medicines, said Don Berry, a biostatistician at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He helped design the novel analytical method discussed Friday at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, an international conference. Researchers testing a drug usually dont see results until theyre all in, to prevent biasing the study. But several years ago, an unusual partnership decided to try a new way. It involves the National Cancer Institute, the FDA, drug companies, dozens of cancer research centers and charitable foundations. The study, called I-SPY2, puts small groups of women on experimental drugs or combinations, then gives them surgery to see what effect the medicines had. The best result is a complete response, where no signs of cancer remain. Each patients results are analyzed as they come in, and advanced statistical methods are used to calculate probabilities that the drug would help in various situations, depending on which women had a complete response. This allows us to learn and adapt from each patient as the study goes on, and results on early participants guide treatment that later ones get, said Dr. Hope Rugo of the University of California, San Francisco. When enough evidence indicates a high probability of success, the drug graduates to finalphase testing. On Friday, Rugo gave results on veliparib, the first of seven drugs being tested. It is made by AbbVie Inc., a North Chicago, Ill., company recently spun off from Abbott Laboratories. It is in a new class of experimental medicines called PARP inhibitors, which target an enzyme cancer relies on to grow. The I-SPY2 testing suggests that adding the chemotherapy drug carboplatin and veliparib to usual chemo before surgery improved outcomes for women with triple negative breast cancer tumors that are not fueled by estrogen, progesterone or the gene that the medicine Herceptin targets. Up to 20percent of breast cancers are this type, and they are more common in young women, blacks and Hispanics, and women with certain breast cancer gene mutations. Researchers were able to determine the drugs potential after tests in only 71 women and just six months of treatment. They calculated that tests of only 300 women with triple negative tumors are needed to give a definitive answer, and that the drug has at least a 90percent probability of success in such patients. If more types of cancer are included, the probability of success drops to 55percent. The results show that we can get early reads on something that is worth pursuing and bail quickly on treatments that dont help, said Dr. Carlos Arteaga of the VanderbiltIngram Comprehensive Cancer Center. Veliparib has now graduated and is eligible for testing in a definitive study. Its not known how long that would take, but it surely would be shorter than the several years that traditional testing requires. FDA officials have said that in certain cases, complete responses can be considered a basis for conditional approval of a drug, as long as follow-up tests are done after the product is on the market to prove that it indeed is improving survival. Last week, another company participating in the I-SPY2 study, Puma Biotechnology Inc., said its experimental drug neratinib had also graduated and would enter a definitive study. Results of the early testing will be presented at a cancer conference next year. The San Antonio meeting is sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research, Baylor College of Medicine and the UT Health Science Center.Marilynn Marchione can be followed at http://twitter.com/ MMarchioneAP Ronald Arnitz, 67PALM HARBORRonald Joseph Arnitz, 67, of Palm Harbor, Fla., (formerly of Clyde, N.Y.) passed away peacefully Dec.8, 2013, at Suncoast Hospice surrounded by his loving family.

US wholesale costs fall for third month on cheap gasWASHINGTON U.S. wholesale prices dropped in November for the third consecutive month, pushed down again by cheaper gasoline and lower home heating oil costs. But excluding volatile energy costs, inflation was mostly stable. The producer price index, which measures prices before they reach the consumer, declined 0.1 percent last month, the Labor Department said Friday. This comes after similar decreases in October and September. Both consumer and wholesale inflation have been running extremely low in the past year. High unemployment and weak wage increases have made it difficult for businesses to raise prices.New daily paper planned for Los AngelesLOS ANGELES The owner of the Orange County Register plans a new daily newspaper in Los Angeles, the boldest step yet in an expansion across Southern California that emphasizes printed publications while others in the industry are focusing on digital. The new seven-day-a-week paper will be known as the Los Angeles Register Freedom Communications CEO Aaron Kushner told The Associated Press on Thursday night, a few hours after announcing the move to his staff in the Orange County Registers newsroom. In addition, Kushner said the Register would open an unspecified number of Los Angeles community weeklies.Plans scrapped to build EuroVegas in SpainMADRID Casino operator Las Vegas Sands on Friday scrapped plans to build a EuroVegas resort near Madrid after the Spanish government rejected as illegal concessions demanded for the investment. The company, led by 80-year-old American tycoon Sheldon Adelson, had proposed a $30 billion project that was to include 12 hotels, six casinos, a convention center, golf courses, theaters, shopping malls, bars and restaurants. The government in Spain, where unemployment stands at 26 percent, had hoped it might create some 260,000 jobs, especially among the young, where unemployment is around 50 percent. But the plan had been fiercely opposed by many who feared the resort would lead to a change in non-smoking laws, promote prostitution and provide only low-paying jobs.Ireland faces more austerity after end of bailoutDUBLIN Irelands finance chief says the countrys exit from its international bailout this week should be celebrated as a eurozone triumph, but wont mean an end to austerity for the debt-battered Irish. On Sunday, Ireland officially ends its reliance on a $93 billion loan program that European governments and the International Monetary Fund provided in 2010 to save the Irish from national bankruptcy. Ireland is the first country in the 17-member eurozone to regain economic sovereignty after a bailout, in contrast to Greece, Cyprus and Portugal. But Finance Minister Michael Noonan told a press conference Friday that investors in new Irish bonds would need to see the country continue to slash spending and deficits through 2015 at least. Ireland has imposed austerity since a 2008 banking crisis.GM gets about $343 million for PSA stakeDETROIT General Motors Co. got about $343 million for its 7 percent stake in French automaker PSA Peugeot Citroen. The Detroit company on Friday said that it completed the private placement sale of 24.8 million PSA shares for 250 million euros. GM bought the PSA stake in March 2012 for $402 million when the companies announced a car-building and purchasing alliance. That means the company will lose about $59 million on the deal.Canadas antitrust regulators scrutinizing GoogleSAN FRANCISCO Government regulators in Canada are poised to open a formal investigation into whether Google is abusing its dominance of the Internet search market to stifle competition and drive up digital advertising prices. Canadas Competition Bureau indicated in a filing made in an Ottawa federal court earlier this week that it suspects that Google Inc. has been breaking the countrys antitrust laws. Regulators are seeking a court order that would require Googles Canadian subsidiary to furnish antitrust investigators with internal company records. Among other things, Canada regulators believe Google has been giving preferential treatment to its own services in its influential search rankings to thwart rivals. Canadas concerns mirror those in an ongoing antitrust investigation into Googles business practices in Europe.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, DECEMBER14, 2013 A7 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,520 1,600 1,680 1,760 1,840 JD JASON 1,760 1,800 1,840 S&P 500Close: 1,775.32 Change: -0.18 (flat) 10 DAYS 14,400 14,800 15,200 15,600 16,000 16,400 JD JASON 15,680 15,900 16,120 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 15,755.36 Change: 15.93 (0.1%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1757 Declined1297 New Highs55 New Lows118 Vol. (in mil.)2,986 Pvs. Volume3,324 1,570 1,823 1489 1035 54 33 NYSE NASD DOW15792.8015717.9215755.36+15.93+0.10%+20.23% DOW Trans.7113.267066.807086.43+26.94+0.38%+33.54% DOW Util.480.11476.75477.81-0.89-0.19%+5.46% NYSE Comp.9974.109927.509954.84+5.26+0.05%+17.90% NASDAQ4017.453992.294000.98+2.58+0.06%+32.50% S&P5001780.921772.451775.32-0.18-0.01%+24.48% S&P4001293.001284.081289.42+4.26+0.33%+26.36% Wilshire 500018937.8918852.7618893.21+21.34+0.11%+26.00% Russell 20001109.501100.751107.05+3.82+0.34%+30.35% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Open To The Public 237 S. Rock Crusher Rd, Crystal River (352) 330-3800 New And Pre-owned Motor Homes, Fifth Wheels & Travel Trailers Stocks mixed Associated PressThe rally that has driven stocks to record highs paused this week as investors tried to figure out where things are headed next. Stocks were mixed on Friday and posted their second weekly loss in a row. Indexes reached record highs as recently as Monday, but then declined. How come? Investors may be nervous that stocks are overpriced, that stock prices have grown faster than justified by profits. They may be worried about conflict with Iran, or the debate over federal spending. Some are worried the Federal Reserve will decide next week to reduce its economic stimulus, which has boosted stock prices. Its a hiatus, said Frank Fantozzi, CEO of money management firm Planned Financial Services. I really think theres nothing economically wrong. Fantozzi noted that other bull markets have run for seven or eight years and peaked with higher prices compared to profits than what were seeing now. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 15.93 points, or 0.1 percent, to close at 15,755.36. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 0.18 points, or 0.01 percent, to 1,775.32. The Nasdaq composite rose 2.57 points, or 0.06 percent, to 4,000.98. All three indexes fell for the week despite strong reports on employment, housing, and retail spending. Investors have been worried that the stronger the Fed thinks the economy is, the more likely it is to stop buying $85 billion per month in bonds. The purchases have been aimed at keeping interest rates low, which makes it cheaper to borrow. That has sent investors into stocks as they seek higher returns. The big indexes are up 20 percent or more this year. The central banks policymaking committee meets next week and will announce any decisions on Wednesday. Guessing when the stimulus will end has become a parlor game for investors. They are stuck between betting that it will end soon, meaning stocks could decline, versus betting that it will continue, bringing the bull market along with it. Scott L. Wren, a senior equity strategist at Wells Fargo Advisors, believes the Fed will telegraph its intentions well in advance. Since they havent done that yet, it suggests they wont act until the spring, he said. He also thinks the Fed could reduce its stimulus very slowly, easing the pain for financial markets. The Fed wants to err on the side of caution, and not do anything too crazy, he said.

OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2013 Choices matterThis is a letter that will be controversial and will sound mean-spirited, particularly at this time of year, but I think it will present another side of the homeless issue and hopefully cause even one person to realize that we dont go through life being the victim of circumstances and bad luck; we do have a huge amount of influence over our lives. A writer recently stated that the homeless certainly didnt choose to be homeless, and while this is generally true and I suspect that all homeless people would agree with the statement, it is worthwhile to ponder this. Certainly many homeless people are victims of a poor economy, bad health, unfortunate breaks in life, abuses, perhaps bad luck, ineffective parents and a host of other circumstances; however, it would be a disservice to let it go at that. It would not be surprising to find that for each person living a homeless life because of negative conditions one could find another person who suffered and overcame an identical set of conditions. So, one must ask whether a homeless person somehow did not or will not do what needed to be done to offset these conditions. Obviously, in many cases the answer might be that nothing could be done. But not always. Early in life there a lot of things that can be done and decisions made to increase the probability of being homeless later in life. Here is a partial list of steps one can take to increase his or her chances of being homeless: Drop out of school or be a failing student, get pregnant at an early age (or cause a girl to become pregnant), especially when you are young and/or in poor financial straits, be a poor worker (tardy, absent, disrespectful, underperforming, bad attitude), spend money foolishly on things such as body piercings, tattoos, gambling and the like, get involved with drugs, break the law, and a really significant step one might take is to smoke, so that you can spend countless thousands of dollars on tobacco and suffer the consequences of wasted money and bad health. All of these are choices that can freely be made. It is not being honest to leave the homeless or those potentially homeless to go about their business always thinking that they have little or no control over their eventual circumstances. One of the keys is to make the right decisions early in life. You do have a lot of control!Charles Hoke Homosassa For all the regional tensions in American politics, have you ever stopped to think what a boring country this would be without the South? Also without black people, of course, which may be another way of saying the same thing. Would there be any music at all? I was moved to this observation by an almost comically obtuse article on a website called businessinsider.com entitled Southern Sayings That the Rest of America Wont Understand. Purporting to explain a list of the most ridiculous Southern sayings supposedly bewildering to persons outside the region, it mainly revealed its authors cultural naivete. For example, is there a native speaker of English anywhere that doesnt grasp the meaning of You cant make a silk purse out of a sows ear? Nor is the phrase, coined by the 18th-century Irish satirist Jonathan Swift, a Southernism at all. Swift had a way of putting things succinctly. Theres also nothing particularly Southern about phrases like useless as tits on a bull used often by my New Jersey father to describe my lack of facility with hand tools. Only female dairy cows produce milk, the authors solemnly inform us. Male cows are called bulls. And even if you could milk anything with nipples, bulls tend to be rather ornery. You get the feeling they had to look it up. A city guy, my father inherited his store of agricultural metaphors directly from rural Ireland. Indeed, many colloquial expressions mad as a wet hen, is another are more rustic than Southern in origin. The authors of the Business Insider article appear to think nobody outside the South could possibly have any knowledge of barnyard animals. But then, many people think that. My Arkansas neighbor likes to talk about his amazement at meeting country boys like himself in the Army Yankees from Pennsylvania and upstate New York. The expression rode hard and put up wet to describe somebody who looks wasted may be a pure Texanism. But the concept is immediately familiar to anybody who knows that horses need to be walked and groomed after hard exercise. That said, theres definitely something different about the way Southerners use language, although its in danger of disappearing as the nation becomes more suburbanized. Exactly how to characterize it is a tougher question. As a kid growing up in New Jersey, I first heard the siren song of the South on AM radio. Popular music back then had grown formulaic and polite all Patti Page and Perry Como. But not on WNJR in Newark, a station whose rhyming DJs played artists like B.B. King, Jimmy Reed and Little Willie John blues singers with origins in the Deep South and wit and emotional directness unmatched in the Top 40. Well you aint so big, Jimmy Reed sang, You just tall, thats all. Elsewhere on the dial, my basketball jock friends and I started following the great Jerry Wests college career on WWVA out of Wheeling, W. Va. Zeke from Cabin Creek. After the games, theyd play straight-up country music: Don Gibson, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, and the immortal Hank Williams. Somewhere in there, I picked up a taste for bluegrass. On our second date, the Arkansas girl I eventually married went to see Lester Flatt, Earl Scruggs and the Foggy Mountain Boys at a high school auditorium in Nelson County, Va. It was incredible, like hearing Eric Clapton at a corner bar. Anyway, I wouldnt say it was how the Arkansas girl talked, but that was definitely part of it. Shed ask for a pin when she wanted something to write with. A city girl from Little Rock, she sounded like Huckleberry Finn to me. Prices were high as a cats back. Shed refuse a second helping on the grounds that she was full as a tick. Shed libel her own posterior as too much ham for the sack. Certain expressions were pure Arkansas. To spill something was to tump it over. Something misaligned or out of place was womperjawed. Like the best slang, no translation was ever required. Her mothers deadliest insult was country-come-to-town, to signify, well, a redneck buffoon. I do think theres an innate wisdom and modesty in reminding ourselves how close we are to nature, and how like the animals. That simplicitys the soul of Southern wit.Arkansas Times columnist Gene Lyons is a National Magazine Award winner and coauthor of The Hunting of the President (St. Martins Press, 2000).

Phase 1 of the cleanup at Cedar Cove in Kings Bay was officially completed last week and residents of the area are already enjoying the results. Art Jones and the Kings Bay Rotary Club continued their cleanup effort with the assistance of a $52,000 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). More than 193 tons of Lyngbya was removed from the Cedar Cove section of the bay. Art Jones and the Rotarians have now proven they can even get the federal government involved in the cleanup. The effort was a collaboration of the Rotarians, the City of Crystal River, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the Florida Coastal Management Program and Save Crystal River Inc. The disgusting Lyngbya was pulled from the cove and trucked off to a disposal location. Once the Lyngbya is removed, native plants again have the opportunity to grow and help clean up the polluted water. The results can already be seen. One win-win aspect of the project was that Jones contracted with several homeless people who stay at the Missions and paid them to do the work. The end result is that the bay is cleaner and unemployed residents got the opportunity to earn some much needed money. Several private entities including employees from Duke Energy, workers with the county EMS service and Rotarians also donated their time to help pull the Lyngbya from the water. Sometimes it takes a village to clean up a village and thats what we are seeing in Crystal River. Volunteers are working with state, local, regional and now federal workers and resources to get the job done. Art Jones and the Rotarians have once again proven that if you put a plan together, caring people and organizations will come together to make the improvements happen. Kings Bay is cleaner for their efforts. And for that, we are all grateful. THE ISSUE:Phase 1 at Cedar Cove.OUR OPINION:A plan comes together.

I agree 100 percent with Mr. Bill Watkins letter to the editor. We, the people of Citrus County, paid for that ramp to be built with our tax dollars. The current county administration, starting at the top, is all about themselves and squeezing every last dollar out of each and every one of us. Election time is coming, folks. Remember who raised your taxes and fees.We love to see you studyIm cracking up watching these people protesting at the fast-food places because of their lousy pay. If youd check these people out, youd see that (some) of them were high school dropouts. If they had stayed long enough to graduate, they wouldnt be working at places like this. Theyd be able to find better employment with better pay. Lawyers make excellent pay because they have the education. Same with nurses and engineers, etc. They got the education and they get paid for it. You dont have to go to law school to improve your life, but at least finish high school.Seek helpThe past few months we have heard on the TV news and newspapers about the tragic suicides of teens because of harassment and bullying. Suicide is an act also committed by adults and even seniors in desperation.

Help is always available. Dial that number. Dont do anything foolish.Editors note:The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached at 800-273-8255.

1,000 percent agreementIm calling in regards to the letter to the editor from Anna DeRose. The article was Call Christmas by its name, and I 1,000 percent agree that this letter was one of the best Ive ever read. People need to remember what Christmas is and forget all the commercialism. We need to look at one another with love, caring and understanding, not all this me and I want type thing. Its Christs birthday. Be happy and love one another.Get rid of TVI am sick and tired of all the advertisements on television and I hope you are too. All of the commercials are the most stupidest things we have ever come across. What do they think? Us people are so stupid that we need to see these stupid commercials? Oh, Im telling you, television is the worst thing going. Theres nothing on thats good anymore. Its disgusting. Lets get rid of television.Father and sonThis is in answer to a (Dec.3 letter to the editor) written by Anna DeRose, who said were taking God out of everything, but then says that Jesus created us and the Earth and everything else. Didnt she just take God out of anything and everything? Jesus was Gods son; he was not our creator. Would you buy it?Is it ripped, stained, obsolete, a terrible color, a TV that nobody wants? Do not I repeat, do not call the countys thrift stores to be your garbage men. Thats why we have a dump. Grow up and smarten up.Excellent concertOn Sunday afternoon, Dec.1, we attended a Christmas concert performed by the Citrus County Community Chorale at St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Crystal River. The Chorale was wonderfully coordinated with spectacular voices and they must have spent many hours rehearsing to put on such a magnificent concert. Money is raised in this manner to award scholarships. Also, sincere thanks to St. Timothys Church for hosting the concert.Christmas cheerI have to respond to Anna DeRoses letter to the editor. While I prefer a Merry Christmas salutation as well, I also enjoy the holiday season from the piped-in Christmas carols, town parades, endless decorations and homemade cookies for Santa, yes, I love this time of year. Its a time of year when folks can be a little nicer, smile a little brighter, connect with family and friends that we may not have had time for throughout the year. Indeed, celebrating the birth of Christ is a fine time of year.Food is plentyTo the person who thinks they should get more than just food at our various charitable organizations: Are we to house you and feed you and find you jobs? We are volunteers who work long hours to help feed the hungry. Its a hand up for those who are down on their luck temporarily. I suggest you be thankful.Give us peaceIm calling about the letter about turning off cellphones. You have no idea how annoying it is to be in every store and every restaurant and everywhere you go, listening to the stupid things and their stupid rings and people just talking and listening to their conversations and we really dont care to listen to them. Its just gotten so out of control. Back home in New Jersey, in very nice restaurants thered always be a sign on the door to turn your cellphone off. And I wish some of these people would just turn them off just once in a while and give the rest of the world some peace.Poor but overweightI get a kick out of these people on television who say they dont make enough money to feed themselves. Well, they ought to look in the mirror. Theyre 100 pounds overweight. Looks like theyre eating pretty good to me.Dont fly tattered flagsYesterday I saw an American flag flying. It was tattered and torn. If youre flying a flag such as this, please remove it. Men and women have died for your freedom. This is a disgrace to them.Can I have one?One thing that is not good for the future, as far as water conservation goes, is somebody giving away 176,000 gallons of our precious water a day for a yearly $50 pass. And by the way, where do I get in line to get one of them $50 passes so I can use all the water I want? Light thievesId like to warn people who put lights out. I had solar lights all over my yard because I want to preserve our energy, and some person took them all, including the ones that were birds that lights go on and off and so on and so forth. I think its a disgrace that you have to abscond with my effects. It really is terrible. And dont you know the Commandment, Thou shalt not steal? Have a good day, thief.Recycle binCould somebody please tell me where to recycle an older computer?Seek companionshipAgain, Christmas is close at hand and many of us are so alone. I was like that, but now Im at Woodland Terrace of Citrus County where youre never alone. Theres always something going on. And a couple of days ago, they put on a beautiful buffet for the family, friends and parents. That took a lot of work for the Activities Department to arrange, but it turned out beautiful and everyone had a good time. Im very fortunate to be here. Have a safe and happy Christmas. And if youre lonesome, look up Woodland Terrace in your (phonebook). Its a beautiful, loving place.Speckled beautIm setting here reading Thursday, Dec.5s Sports section of the Chronicle and Id just like to comment on that speckled perch picture on page 2. That sure is a beauty and Id like to know where he caught that because Id like to go get some of them speckled perch.Protecting yourself(My) credit card was scammed last month. They caused me to lose my Social Security check and my VA widows pension I get from the VA. How can they stop all this scamming and all these telephone calls that you get? Does anyone know? Id sure appreciate it if you could tell me.

Gunman wounds classmatesCENTENNIAL, Colo. A teenager who may have had a grudge against a teacher opened fire Friday with a shotgun at a suburban Denver high school, wounding two fellow students before killing himself. Quick-thinking students alerted the targeted teacher, who quickly left the building, and police immediately locked down the scene on the eve of the Newtown massacre anniversary. One of the wounded students, a girl, was hospitalized and in serious condition. The other student suffered minor injuries and was expected to be released from the hospital later Friday evening, Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said.Airport worker nabbed in bomb plotWICHITA, Kan. A Kansas man prosecutors say sympathized with violent terrorists was arrested Friday as part of an FBI sting after he drove a vehicle loaded with what he thought were explosives to a Wichita airport. Investigators allege Terry Lee Loewen planned to attack Wichitas Mid-Continent Regional airport in a plot aimed at supporting al-Qaida. Loewen, a 58-year-old avionics technician who worked at the airport for Hawker Beechcraft, was arrested before dawn as he tried to drive onto the tarmac. The materials in the car were inert, authorities said.School workers plead not guilty in rape caseSTEUBENVILLE, Ohio Four eastern Ohio school workers entered not guilty pleas Friday to charges stemming from a grand jury investigation into other alleged crimes spurred by the rape of a 16-year-old girl by two high school football players.

April Lee, 28, and Michael Johnson, 32, were arrested last month then freed on bail pending a Dec. 19 hearing in San Jose to answer charges of grand theft, attempted grand theft and extortion, the Los Angeles Daily News reported Wednesday. The man borrowed money from his mother and family, handing the couple nearly $927,000 in two years, according to the criminal complaint. Eventually, Lee even sent the man text messages claiming to be his love interest. The texts said that the two couldnt speak directly because of the curse.

The execution sparked violent protests as activists torched homes and businesses belonging to government supporters, leaving at least three people dead. Ukraine talks give no indication crisis is overKIEV, Ukraine The meeting Friday of Ukraines president and the leaders of mass protests against him was billed as a round table, but it was essentially a square-off. The meeting, which also included Ukraines three former presidents and an array of student, religious and union representatives, gave no indication that the crisis pitting President Viktor Yanukovych against vehement opposition was any closer to resolution after three weeks of demonstrations that have swelled to hundreds of thousands of people. Yanukovych proposed that amnesty be granted to those who have been arrested in the protests and said the measure would be taken up by the parliament next week. But opposition leaders countered with demands that the government step down, and for early parliamentary and presidential elections to be held.Rebels: Islamic militants nabbed our weaponsLONDON Islamic militants have taken control of a cache of machine guns and ammunition intended for Syrias Western-backed rebels, the Syrian opposition confirmed Friday, demanding the weapons be returned. Syrian National Coalition official Monzer Akbik told reporters in London that it still wasnt completely clear how a new alliance of hardline Muslim fighters came to control warehouses containingrebel machine guns and ammunition at the Bab al-Hawa border crossing between Syria and Turkey, but they did. The reality is that the Islamic Front are holding, now, the hardware, he said. They should return it. Despite the incident, Akbik said the opposition was still hoping to include Islamic fighters as part of their delegation to the Geneva peace talks in January. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressA woman and a man hold hands Friday after access to see former South Africa President Nelson Mandela was closed on the third and final day of his casket lying in state in Pretoria, South Africa. Associated PressPYONGYANG, North Korea The execution of North Korean leader Kim Jong Uns uncle brought a swift and violent end to a man long considered the countrys second most powerful figure. But while Jang Song Thaek is now gone, the fallout from his purge is not over. In a stunning reversal of the popular image of Jang as a mentor and father figure guiding young Kim Jong Un as he consolidated power, North Koreas state-run media announced Friday he had been executed, portraying him as a morally corrupt traitor who saw the death of Kims father, Kim Jong Il, in December 2011 as an opportunity to make his own power play. Experts who study the authoritarian country, which closely guards its internal workings from both outsiders and citizens, were divided on whether the sudden turn of events reflected turmoil within the highest levels of power or signaled that Kim Jong Un was consolidating his power in a decisive show of strength. Either way, the purge is an unsettling development for a world that is already wary of Kims unpredictability amid North Koreas attempts to develop nuclear weapons. If he has to go as high as purging and then executing Jang, it tells you that everythings not normal, said Victor Cha, a former senior White House adviser on Asia. The first appearance of the new narrative came out just days ago, when North Korea accused Jang, 67, of corruption, womanizing, gambling and taking drugs. It said hed been eliminated from all his posts. The purge could spread and bring down more people, Cha said. When you take out Jang, youre not taking out just one person youre taking out scores if not hundreds of other people in the system. South Korean intelligence officials said two of Jangs closest aides were executed last month. Jangs removal leaves no clear No. 2 under Kim. News of Jangs execution was trumpeted across the nation by North Koreas state media as a triumph of Kim Jong Un and the ruling party over a traitor worse than a dog who was bent on overthrowing the government. Pyongyang residents crowded around newspapers posted at the capitals main subway station to read the story. Hes like an enemy who dares to be crazy enough to take over power from our party and our leader, said Pak Chang Gil, echoing the medias official line. He got what he deserved. Associated PressPeople watch a live TV news program Thursday showing that North Korean leader Kim Jong Uns uncle Jang Song Thaek, second from right, is escorted by military officers during a trial in Pyongyang, North Korea, at the Seoul Railway Station in Seoul, South Korea. More purges may follow execution in N. Korea Associated PressWASHINGTON The Obama administration faced intensified pressure Friday to find former CIA contractor Robert Levinson both from lawmakers and the Levinson family nearly seven years after he disappeared in Iran during what now has been revealed as an unofficial spy mission. Levinsons family urged the government to step up and take care of one of its own. Members of Congress said they wanted to know more about the case, which led to three veteran analysts being forced out of the agency and seven others being disciplined. Levinson vanished after a March 2007 meeting with an admitted killer on Kish Island, an Iranian resort. For years, the U.S. publicly described him as a private citizen who traveled to the tiny Persian Gulf island on business. But an Associated Press investigation revealed Levinson actually was a contractor working for the CIA, and was paid by a team of agency analysts who were acting without authority to run spy operations to gather intelligence. If he is still alive at age 65, Levinson has been captive longer than any other American known to be held overseas. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Levinson, who retired after 28 years at the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration, was not a U.S. employee at the time of his disappearance. A contractor would not be considered a government employee, but the CIA paid Levinsons family about $120,000, the value of the new contract the agency was preparing for him when he left for Iran, and the government gave the family a $2.5 million annuity, which provides tax-free income, multiple people briefed on the deal said. No one wanted a lawsuit that would air the secret details. Administration faces new pressure over CIA contractor missing in Iran Associated PressPRETORIA, South Africa An estimated 100,000 South Africans lined up in Pretoria to view Nelson Mandela in his casket, but about a third of the overwhelming crowd was sent away without being able to file past the bier. Many of the frustrated mourners fought back tears of disappointment on the third and last day of the revered leaders lying in state. Mandelas coffin was taken away by a military guard to 1 Military Hospital in Pretoria. The anti-apartheid icon will be flown today to his rural home in Qunu, Eastern Cape where he will be buried on Sunday. Hundreds of people cheered and some burst into song when Mandelas cortege left Pretorias Union Buildings, the seat of government, for the last time Friday evening. It was amazing, said Keneilwe Mohapi, who stood with her mother as the impressive motorcade went by. We couldnt ask for a more fitting end. Its an honor to say goodbye to him properly. Were mourning, but Im grateful, the 27-year-old said. Many waited under a hot sun for four or five hours in a line snaking through an open field to busses that would take the lucky ones to see Mandela. I feel like Ive lost a once-in-alifetime opportunity, said 22-yearold student Caiphus Ramushun. Im frustrated because I got so close, he added, saying he was only about 100 people away from making it to the buildings. I spent eight hours in line. I came so close to going on. Instead I was turned away, he said. Mandelas body was on display since Wednesday, with larger crowds trying to view it each day. About 70,000 mourners were able to file past the casket Friday, government spokeswoman Phumla Williams said. But Fridays surge overwhelmed planners, who were not able to move people through security checkpoints and onto buses quickly enough. Officials were handing out water to those waiting. The area where people stood in line was so crowded that it became a city within a city: Entrepreneurs set up barbecue grills and sold Mandela memorabilia, including T-shirts imprinted with his smiling face and words: May he rest in peace. Shortly before Mandelas casket was removed and taken to a nearby military hospital, a crowd of several hundred mourners eager to pay their last respects broke through police barriers and raced up toward the Union Buildings. The people were joyous as they raced toward temporary structure where Mandela was on view in his coffin. No violence erupted as police peacefully brought them back in line, according to an AP reporter. A hundred thousand gather to see Mandela, but many turned away

The Tigers led by 31 points with 1:39 remaining after going 11 for 20 from 3-point range in the Panther gym, and prevailed 89-67 to secure their fifth straight win since a now-ancient 0-2 start. Dunnellon (5-2) improves to 2-0 in the four-team district after handing Citrus its only loss a week ago. The Panthers fall to 5-3 and sit third in the 5A-6 standings at 1-2. DHS jumped ahead 7-2 in the opening minutes, before the Panthers steadied themselves into a 16-14 deficit behind 10 first-quarter points from junior forward Darius Sawyer, who finished with a game-high 25. But it was clearly Desmond Frazier and Dunnellons night, as the elusive 6-foot wingman landed a trio of 3s in the first half in helping his bunch go ahead 36-21 by the break on the heels of a 20-7 second-quarter advantage. The junior paced his Tigers with 21 points and added four steals. (Frazier) is a pretty good player, Lecanto head coach Jeff Anderson said. He was coming off that screen at the top of the key and just draining them. Dunnellon found lots of good looks both behind the arc and at the boards off a variety of potent dishes against a LHS squad thats staked its pride on defense this season under Anderson. Thats a great team, Anderson said of Dunnellon. Theres a reason theyre No. 1 in the district now. They knock down open shots and make the extra pass a very skilled team. They beat us handily. The defense weve stressed all year long, the mindset, wasnt there. Dunnellon had three additional players junior Stacin Bishop (19 points), sophomore Darion Baker (15 points) and junior Will Thomas (12 points) post double-digit in scoring. Thomas had a game-high 10 boards, and Bishop knocked down four 3s over a nine-minute span that covered most of the third quarter. When you make shots, you look good, Dunnellon head coach Travis Licht said. I Citrus overwhelms CR late Pryors 22 points paces Canes in 59-46 district winJON-MICHAELSORACCHI Staff writerINVERNESS When Devin Pryor went to the bench in the second quarter with his third foul, it looked like a bad night was on its way to getting worse for his Citrus boys basketball team. Instead, his cousin Desmond Franklin and senior shooting guard Mitchell Ellis gave the Hurricanes a big boost over the middle part of the contest and Pryor finished it off with a personal 9-0 run late in the fourth quarter to give Citrus a 59-46 victory over District 5A-6 foe Crystal River on Friday night. I came out a little off, well, a lot off, Pryor said. And my cousin Dez said hed hold it down for me and thats what he did. As soon as I got back in, I knew what I had to do and thats put my team back up. Pryor, Franklin and Ellis combined to score all but four of the Hurricanes points: Pryor led the way with 22, while Ellis netted 17 and Franklin added 16. The final score belied the fact that the Pirates played well and were at times better than their Hurricane counterparts. Crystal River knocked down their first three shots of the contest all three pointers to take a 9-2 lead and force Citrus coach Tom Densmore to call a timeout with 5:53 left in the opening period. After Pryor put back a miss by a teammate to cut it to five, Crystal River senior guard Ty Reynolds hit a free throw, a pull-up jumper and a floater in the lane on consecutive possessions to extend the Pirates advantage out to 14-4. Unfortunately for Crystal River (2-6 overall, 0-2 district), the team put in just 17 more points between Reynolds last bucket with 1:41 left in the first quarter to the start of the fourth quarter. They extended their defense in the second half and started challenging those passes, Crystal River head coach Steve Feldman said. Am I disappointed with my teams effort? No, not at all. We played Top of the heap Citrus girls basketball team turns back CR rally in 55-44 district triumph MATT PFIFFNER/ ChronicleCrystal Rivers Megan Wells drives past Haley Martone of Citrus during the first quarter of Friday nights district clash in Cr ystal River. The Hurricanes held off a second-half rally by the Pirates for a 55-44 victory. C.J. RISAK CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER One word: Thats all that was required by each coach to summarize what had happened, and why, in Fridays key 5A-6 girls basketball match-up between Citrus and Crystal River. Timing, was the choice of Citrus coach Dave Hamilton. We were getting key baskets at the right time. Timing was the key thing for us in the first half. Turnovers, was how Crystal Rivers Jason Rodgers would describe the final result, a 55-44 Citrus triumph that, midway through the 5A-6 season, kept the Hurricanes unbeaten in district play. We had too many turnovers, 31 of them. Some of them their defense caused, but bottom line, we didnt take care of the ball. It wasnt necessarily their defense as much as our execution against it. Whichever summary you choose, the result was the same another Citrus victory over the Pirates, the seventh time Rodgers has faced the Hurricanes as Crystal Rivers coach and the seventh straight loss. Citrus is 10-1 overall, 3-0 in 5A-6; the Pirates are 9-2 overall, 2-1 in 5A-6. Although the Hurricanes took the lead for good with 3:10 to go in the first quarter, the outcome wasnt determined until 5:22 remained in the fourth. Thats when Treleasha Simmons was fouled and made one free throw, accounting for Citrus first point of the quarter and increasing its lead to 39-36. But that wasnt the gamechanging event. It was then that Pirates standout Jasmyne Eason went down with a severe leg cramp, bad enough that she had to be helped from the court. When she returned, only 37.5 seconds remained and, in that span, Citrus had outscored Crystal River 14-4. The Hurricanes spent a great deal of their defensive focus on containing Eason, who leads Crystal River in scoring, rebounding and blocked shots.

MISSED FIELD GOALSNone. Fan voices displeasure to Lions wide receiver Associated PressDetroits Nate Burleson tried to get away from his job and give back to the community a day after the Lions blew a 14-0 lead in a 34-20 loss at Philadelphia. But he ran into a disgruntled fan. He had this frown on his face and he was like, Man, you guys are sorry, and said a couple other words I probably couldnt say on camera, Burleson recalled. Initially, my first response was to defend myself and my team and we just started talking. He was just basically saying, Look, you had a 14-point lead and you guys lost. Its the same thing Ive been seeing all the time, every game. The Lions have a loyal fan base despite enjoying one playoff victory since the franchise won the 1957 NFL title, and one postseason appearance this century. After Burlesons first exchange with the man on the way into a local church, he resumed the chat with him 90 minutes later. He said, The only reason Im so mad is Ive been seeing this repeat forever, Burleson added. I said, I get it. Its a rerun. Its the same programming that youve been seeing, but its our job to change that. I said, Give us the opportunity. Right now, were still in the division lead and weve got three games. I told him Id come back in three weeks when we make the playoffs and well have a different conversation. The Lions (7-6) enter the weekend tied with Chicago atop the NFC North, but might start their game Monday night at home against Baltimore (7-6) needing a victory to pull back into a firstplace tie with the Bears. Burleson, in his fourth year in Detroit and 11th in the NFL, said its not the first time he has heard about the franchises losing ways from fans. I get those same conversations when Im in the grocery store, gas station or at the mall, Burleson said. It doesnt matter if youre homeless or you got a million dollars, if you love the Lions and were letting you down, you could feel a certain type of way about tough losses like that.Second CousinsEven though hes starting ahead of Robert Griffin III for the rest of the season, Kirk Cousins doesnt expect to keep the job next year for the Washington Redskins. Ive said it since Ive been here and Ill say it again, I do believe that Robert is the franchise quarterback here in Washington, Cousins said. He was drafted No. 2 overall. A lot of picks were traded to get him. Common sense would say that this is his team, and Ive never wanted to take that away from him or do anything to undermine his role. Cousins was selected three rounds after Griffin last year and won his only start in 2012. Hes getting the nod for the rest of this season, according to coach Mike Shanahan, because of the number of hits Griffin has taken in recent weeks. The expectation has been that Cousins will eventually be trade fodder, and his value would certainly increase with a good performance in the final three games. Whether its here or somewhere else where Im auditioning, that feeling of challenging yourself, being tough on yourself and putting pressure on yourself, I dont think that ever goes away, Cousins said, regardless of the circumstances youre under.Jolly returns to TexasGreen Bays game at Dallas will be the first for Packers defensive tackle Johnny Jolly in Texas since he spent time in prison in his home state on a drug conviction. Jolly was sentenced to six years in prison in November 2011 for possession of codeine in his native Houston. He was released just six months later and will be on probation until 2022. The 30-year-old Jolly was reinstated from a three-year suspension in March and made the roster in training camp. Now hes a starter again, just like in 2008-09. Man, its going to be great, Jolly said. Getting a chance to go home and play in my home state. He missed that chance when the Packers won the 2011 Super Bowl at the $1.2 billion home of the Cowboys. He had twice been charged with possession of codeine, and admitted he was high when he watched the Packers beat Pittsburgh on television. Jolly never doubted he would get another chance, but the former Texas A&M player is grateful nonetheless. I cant even explain it, the feeling that I have, each and every week that I come in and be able to practice and perform on Sundays, the 6-foot-3, 325-pound Jolly said. Most guys dont get a second chance, and Im blessed to have a second chance. The significance of Sunday isnt lost on coach Mike McCarthy either. Texans have a lot of pride, and Johnny has a lot of pride being from Houston and where he grew up and playing at A&M, McCarthy said. This will definitely be a big day for him.Doing it againBengals cornerback Leon Hall knows exactly what to expect in his recovery from a torn Achilles tendon. He did it all just two years ago. Hall tore his right Achilles tendon during a win in Detroit on Oct. 20 and had surgery. Hes following roughly the same rehabilitation schedule he did in 2011, when he tore the left Achilles tendon on Dec. 13 against Pittsburgh. Hes got the cast off and hes in a protective boot. Sometimes with this one you kind of go as the tendon allows you to do, Hall said this week. But for the most part, its going to be the same number of weeks I had in a cast and the same amount of weeks in this boot and so on. There were doubts whether the 29-year-old cornerback would ever be the same after the first injury. He was ready for the start of training camp last year and moved back into his role as top cornerback. He figures the same is possible this time, with a few extra weeks to get ready for the start of training camp next July. I dont see why not, he said. My left one is healed 100 percent, so Im kind of looking at it basically with the same mindset I had on the first one. Hall visits the trainers room nearly every day to get treatment and see teammates. I go into a couple of the meetings every once in a while, just pop my head in there, he said. People are walking around the training room. So you still kind of keep in touch. Youre obviously not spending as much time as you would normally. I get a good amount of time so they still remember my name.New No. 1?Sheldon Richardson doesnt think hed be a member of the New York Jets if teams redid last Aprils NFL draft now. The loquacious rookie defensive tackle went 13th overall to the Jets, but he anticipates hed go a lot higher. And hes not just talking top-10 or top-5. Probably No. 1, most likely, a smiling Richardson said. Kansas City? Yeah. I went into the draft thinking Id be the No. 1 pick. I had a shot. The former Missouri star was never really mentioned in discussions about the top selection, which ended up being Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher. But Richardson is having a high-impact first season, one that has him in the running for Defensive Rookie of the Year. According to the coaches statistics, he has 85 total tackles, including 11 for losses, 3 1/2 sacks and 27 quarterback hurries. I just look at the film, said Rex Ryan, who believes Richardson deserves the rookie award. Base it on production. Productions a huge part of it. Richardson laughed when asked if he thinks the Jets made the correct choice by taking him over Carolinas Star Lotulelei, who was taken one spot after him and also is having a strong rookie year. Most definitely, Richardson said. I still think Im 13, 12 picks late, if you ask me. Just playing. Its all fun and games, and Im glad hes balling, too. Its 13 and 14, and now were both going for Defensive Rookie of the Year. Cant ask for much better than that. Tough crowd for Burleson Associated PressNate Burleson and the Detroit Lions are trying to turn around a franchise that has seen just one playoff victory since 1957. The Lions are tied for the NFC North division lead with three games remaining. Miamis Pouncey makes trip to Boston Associated PressDAVIE Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey confirmed he missed one day of practice to fly to Boston, but he declined to say whether the trip was related to the criminal case there involving his former college teammate, ex-New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Pouncey was served with a grand jury subpoena in the case following the Dolphins game at New England in October. Coincidentally, they play the Patriots again Sunday in Miami. The reason for Pouncey missing practice Wednesday was listed as noninjury by the team. He said he flew back to Miami that night. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, a 27-year-old semi-professional football player. Hernandez and Pouncey played together at the University of Florida. Pouncey practiced Friday and said his one-day absence wont affect his performance Sunday. Its something I had to go handle. Im here with my football team, so Im happy, Pouncey said. It would be just like if I was injured (Wednesday) and I didnt practice. Im a veteran on this team now and weve played this defense before. Well be all right. As Pouncey left the locker room, he added: Heres one thing I can tell you about Boston: Its cold. Pouncey hadnt previously missed any practice time because of the subpoena, but he sat out two games in November with a gall bladder illness.Jaguars release veteran DE Jeremy MinceyJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars released veteran defensive end Jeremy Mincey on Friday after he was late for another meeting. Mincey was inactive for two games and fined last month after showing up late. Coach Gus Bradley gave Mincey a chance to get his priorities straight, but Mincey failed to do so, so the coach and general manager Dave Caldwell decided to let him go. Just felt like it was time to move forward, Bradley said. It wasnt one particular thing that caused the reaction. I think it was just a combination of things. Mincey thanked the franchise for giving me the opportunity. You will always have a place in my heart, he posted on his Twitter page. Love, peace and you will be missed. After sitting out two games and vowing to do things right, Mincey returned to the rotation against Houston last week and played 36 snaps. It was his 64th game since joining the Jaguars in 2006. He started 41 of them. Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey plans on playing Sunday after missing time with an injury.Associated Press

It all started on the defensive end, he added. Lecanto is tough to match up with, with (junior Brandon) Burich and Sawyer. I knew if we took care of our defensive assignments, that wed get some looks in transition. Its hard to win (at Lecanto). I like where were at right now, but we have a lot of basketball left to play. Sawyer and Burich (23 points, seven rebounds), who tallied 17 points in the second half, didnt get as much offensive help as the Tiger shooters enjoyed. Outside of those two standouts, no other Panther scored more than three points. As a team, Lecanto missed 21 3pointers and was out-rebounded 3421. In that first half, we were jacking up the ball and all Dunnellon was doing was sagging off of us, Anderson said. We were settling for shots early in our possessions, which is very uncharacteristic of what weve been trying to do. We didnt run our sets well tonight. Usually we shoot very well, and we didnt tonight. Lecanto plays at Williston 8:30 p.m. tonight, while Dunnellon heads to Ocala to take on St. John Lutheran. really well for 3 1/2 quarters. Meanwhile, Franklin and Ellis combined for 21 points in the second and third periods, and a two-possession sequence by Franklin put the Hurricanes on top for good. Two straight times, the Pirates threw lazy passes near halfcourt and in both instances, Franklin stole the ball with a clear path to the hoop and threw down emphatic dunks. The latter, a two-handed rim rattler, put Citrus up 29-27 with at the 3:44 mark of the third quarter. We went to our third different defense of the game, Densmore said. It did give us a little bit of a spark, especially Desmond out there. When Crystal River came out and jumped on us like that, how long did it take us to recover? The Hurricanes (7-1, 2-1) entered the final eight minutes holding a 3931 margin, but the Pirates werent done. Three different times, Crystal River sliced Citrus lead down to four points, the last time on a pair of Tyler Pollard free throws with 4:28 left. Pryor, who spent nearly all of the second quarter and half of the third quarter on the bench with three fouls, stuck in a putback and Ellis swished a pull-up jumper to push it to a 50-42 lead. Reynolds, who finished with a team-high 17 points, slithered into the paint and hit a twisting scoop shot to make it a two-possession contest with just under three minutes remaining. But Pryor wouldnt be denied, scoring four different ways in 86 seconds a driving layup, an offensive rebound, a stepback mid-range jumper and a 3 from the top of the key to bury the Pirates under a 59-44 deficit with 1:16 left in the contest. I think the time he was in foul trouble ended up being to our advantage, Densmore said of Pryor. He came into the game fresh. Citrus senior forward Ben Janicki had 10 rebounds and four blocks for the Hurricanes. Pryor added 8 rebounds as well. For Crystal River, John Hess pulled down 11 rebounds, while Pollard chipped in with 11 points and 5 rebounds. Before the game, Pryor was honored with a game ball commemorating him joining the 1,000-point club for his career. Pryor was the first male Hurricane to hit that mark since Jamaal Galloway and Joel Miller each accomplished the feat during the 2002-03 campaign. Getting this game ball really meant a lot to me, Pryor said. And this being a district game at home, I knew I had to step it up.Jon-Michael Soracchi is the Chronicle sports editor. He can be reached at 352-564-2928 or emailed at jmsoracchi@chronicleonline.com her, Citrus senior Shenelle Toxen said. We worked on that all week. We concentrated on her and then moved fast to the shooters outside. That strategy seemed to work Eason was limited to three points on free throws in the opening half and had eight points in the game, to go with 11 rebounds. Toxen led all scorers, netting 21 points for Citrus. Shally Morales added 13 and Simmons contributed 11. Katelyn Hannigans 13 points paced the Pirates. It was Morales that got the Hurricanes going early, hitting a pair of three-pointers in the games first 90 seconds. Still, Crystal River led 11-9 before Citrus scored four of the quarters final five to take a one-point lead into the second, and a 10-3 run in the first six minutes of that period put the Canes up 23-15. They led 25-18 at the half. Twice in the second half, the Pirates made runs, closing to 35-31 late in the third before a Toxen triple in the closing seconds put Citrus up 38-31 at periods end, and then by scoring the first five of the fourth to make it 38-36 which is when Eason went down. You cant play a team the caliber of Crystal River and concentrate on one player, Hamilton said. When she was on the court (injured in the fourth quarter), we huddled and I said defense would win this game. And it did. At halftime we said defense would win the game, and our defensive timing in the second half did it. Citrus had just 14 turnovers compared to Crystal Rivers 31. CITRUSContinued from Page B1 TOPContinued from Page B1 PANTHERSContinued from Page B1 American Heritage defeats Clay, 66-8ORLANDO Sony Michel and Isaiah McKenzie had three touchdowns apiece as Plantation American Heritage defeated Green Cove Springs Clay, 66-8, in the Florida Class 5A state football championship game. Michel, a running back committed to Georgia, scored on touchdown runs of 5, 1 and 13 yards. He finished the game with 98 yards on 13 carries in about two and a half quarters of work. McKenzie scored on a 3-yard run, 49yard pass and 65-yard punt return. American Heritage (13-1) scored on its first five possessions and took a 40-0 lead at halftime. In the second half the Patriots increased the lead to 59-0 in the first three minutes of the third quarter. Clay (10-5) got a touchdown from quarterback Wes Weeks, who rushed for 74 yards on 14 carries. American Heritage quarterback Torrance Gibson was 9-of-10 for 161 yards and two touchdowns and added 154 rushing yards and another touchdown. Tavares McFadden scored on an 86-yard kickoff return for the Patriots.Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer claims 7A titleORLANDO Alonzo Smith rushed for 219 yards and two touchdowns to lift Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer to a 55-39 victory over Niceville in the Florida Class 7A state football championship game Friday night. Dwyer (15-0) earned its second state championship in four years. Niceville (13-2) led 21-19 at halftime but Dwyer broke things open with 22 points in the third quarter. Johnnie Dixon hauled in a 13-yard touchdown pass from Daniel Parr to give the Panthers a 34-27 lead. The Panthers Trace Batten returned an interception 27 yards to the Niceville 12 and five plays later Gerald Hearns scored from 1-yard out to make it 41-27. Smith closed out the game with a 58yard touchdown run that gave Dwyer a 55-33 lead in the fourth quarter. Parr was 21-of-27 for 236 yards and three touchdowns. Nicevilles Ashton Hooker was 15-of-26 for 245 yards and two touchdowns but threw five interceptions.Klinsmann receives 4-year extension from US SoccerU.S. Soccer wasnt taking any chances of losing Jurgen Klinsmann to another country or club. USSF President Sunil Gulati said Friday the federation broke with tradition by giving him a four-year extension before the World Cup. In part, the federation feared other teams would pursue him after next years tournament in Brazil. There already was talk linking Klinsmann to Switzerland and Englands Tottenham Hotspur. Gulati said the agreement shows a long-term commitment on both sides, and market dynamics dictate some of that. The U.S. is 27-10-7 under Klinsmann and qualified for its seventh straight World Cup. It won this years CONCACAF Gold Cup, the championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean. The Americans set team records this year for wins (16), winning percentage (.761) and winning streak (12).Broncos Miller fined $25K for hit on Titans QBNEW YORK Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has been fined $25,000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick last Sunday. Miller popped Fitzpatrick in the helmet with his facemask, resulting in a penalty that led to a touchdown for the Titans in Tennessees 51-28 loss. The league announced the fine Friday. Chicago wide receiver Brandon Marshall was docked $15,000 for wearing non-approved orange cleats during the Bears win over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night. From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

B4SATURDAY, DECEMBER14, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Defending champs Perry, OHair share lead Two other teams post 64s in alternate-shot play at Shootout Associated PressNAPLES Defending champions Kenny Perry and Sean OHair shot an 8-under 64 in modified alternate-shot play Friday for a share of the first-round lead in the Franklin Templeton Shootout. The teams of Matt Kuchar-Harris English and Charles Howell IIIJustin Leonard also shot 64 on the Ritz Carlton Resorts Tiburon course. The 24 teams will play better ball Saturday and finish with a scramble Sunday. After playing the front nine in 3 under, Perry and OHair birdied Nos. 13-16. It was a fun day for me, said Perry, the Champions Tour player of the year and Charles Schwab Cup points champion. When (OHair) poured it in from about 15 feet on the first hole I knew it was going to be a good day for us. We were never in any trouble. We had a great chance to really go low today and better than 8 under, but thats OK. I mean, alternate shot is a tough format. To me its my favorite format. I love it more than any format of all the three. So, you know, you can lose it. If we get off to a crummy start its hard to catch up with best ball and scramble coming up. Kuchar and English birdied Nos. 12-14 and eagled No. 17. Yeah, it was a lot of fun playing with Harris, Kuchar said. I knew he was on some pretty good form and knew I had a good horse for a partner. English replaced the injured Brandt Snedeker in the field This is a tournament that Ive always watched on TV growing up and it seemed like such a great format and such a good competition, English said. English hit a 6-iron shot from 192 yards to 6 feet to set up the eagle. When you start hitting some good shots and start getting some momentum, you keep rolling and we did a good job of keeping that momentum going on the back nine and making a bunch of birdies and making eagle on 17, English said. Howell and Leonard birdied the final three holes on the front nine and added birdies at Nos. 10, 12, 13, 17 and 18. Today we chose Justin to hit first and that was great for me because he drove it in the fairway every time and I could swing away at it. Howell said. Retief Goosen and Fredik Jacobson shot 67, and Jason Dufner and Dustin Johnson matched Chris DiMarco and Billy Horschel at 68. Tournament host Norman and Jonas Blixt had a 72.Garcia, Rose share lead at Thailand ChampionshipCHONBURI, Thailand Propelled by a hole in one, Sergio Garcia carded a 7-under 65 to share the lead with Justin Rose halfway through the Thailand Championship. Garcia, who finished fourth last year, had a bogey-free round which included an ace on the 236-yard eighth hole. Rose, the U.S. Open champion, followed a birdie on the second hole with a bogey on the third, and came back to sink two birdies and then eagle the 11th for a 68 at Amata Spring Country Club. Their two-round tally was at 11-under 133, two strokes ahead of Anirban Lahiri (64), Alexander Levy (65) and Alex Cejka (71). Rickie Fowler was another shot behind at 8 under, and Henrik Stenson is in a group of four at 7 under.Campillo, Nel shoot 59s in Durban, with preferred liesDURBAN, South Africa Two players shot 59s using preferred lies in the second round of the rain-soaked Nelson Mandela Championship. Jorge Campillo of Spain and Colin Nel of South Africa both reached what is seen as golfs magic number, although the scores wont count as European Tour records, because players were allowed to improve their lies on the sodden Mount Edgecombe course. Campillos two eagles and seven birdies gave him a share of the clubhouse lead on 11-under 129 with Matthew Baldwin (62). Nel had an eagle and nine birdies to move up to a share of 26th. The event was reduced to 54 holes after long weather delays on the first three days.

The Pistons snapped a three-game losing streak and ended Brooklyns three-game winning streak. Drummond, who was shooting 38 percent from the foul line coming into the game and was much worse than that earlier this season went 6 of 8 on free throws. Those shots ended up being crucial. Deron Williams led Brooklyn with 22 points.

Associated PressNEW YORK Jameis Winston smiled and laughed, posing for pictures with the other Heisman Trophy finalists and the big bronze statue that he is expected to take home. And when it came time to answer questions from the media on Friday, the Florida State star quarterback did so confidently and without hesitation, even when his protection broke down. Winston and four of the other six Heisman finalists Texas A&Ms Johnny Manziel, Auburns Tre Mason, Boston Colleges Andre Williams and Northern Illinois Jordan Lynch met with reporters at a Midtown Manhattan hotel for short interviews. Alabamas AJ McCarron was in Baltimore accepting another award. Florida State officials tried to limit questions that were even vaguely related to the rape accusation against Winston. The state attorney closed the investigation last week, saying there was not enough evidence to win a conviction. The 19-year-old, who hasnt spoken directly about the details of the investigation, seemed unfazed by the questions that did come his way. He said he was fine remaining silent about the case. I knew I did nothing wrong. I knew I could respect the process and Id eventually be vindicated. It was more about me being silent for my family because I didnt want to put my family in those situations. We had so much respect for Mr. (Tim) Jansen and everything going around and knew I did nothing wrong and everything would be OK. Winston was the only Heisman finalist to show up with his lawyer, Jansen, who strolled in with the Florida State entourage for the media availability. Winston looked like a college student going to class: Black Florida State sweatsuit with garnet trim, and a matching backpack hanging off his shoulders. Winston is the overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman after a sensational season, leading No. 1 Florida State to the national championship game against No. 2 Auburn. But the celebration of his record-breaking performance has been muted by a year-old sexual assault allegation that went from dormant to active last month. The Tallahassee Police gave its finding to prosecutors, who took three weeks to investigate further and decide not to press charges. Documents and reports, including the accusers accounts to police, have been made public. They are lessthan-flattering to Winston. On Friday, the accusers attorney, Patricia Carroll, asked Floridas attorney general to independently examine the rape investigation, claiming it was riddled with problems. A few hours later, Winston was taking questions, mostly about football and the Heisman and being in New York city for the first time. He was asked about dealing with off-field issues and two other questions that were indirectly related to the investigation. It was stressful, but youve got to look forward, he said. Soon after, Florida State sports information director Kerwin Lonzo said: Hes only answering football questions and about the Heisman.

Perhaps the only way it can get better is if he can lead the Midshipmen to their 12th straight win over Army today in Philadelphia. Heisman TrophyPROFILE Bellcow back Associated PressBOSTON Andre Williams had already rushed for more than 2,000 yards heading into Boston Colleges regular-season finale. Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was being investigated for sexual assault, and his Heisman Trophy stock was falling. For a few days, it looked like the BC running back might have a chance to bring home college footballs most prestigious individual honor. Then, Florida prosecutors decided not to bring charges against Winston, removing what was seen as the last impediment to his Heisman candidacy. And Williams was injured in the season finale against Syracuse, finishing with 29 yards in the game far short of the almost 190 yards per week he was averaging this season. And that might have been the end of his Heisman chances. I was more worried about how it was going to affect our bowl chances, Williams said this week after he was announced as one of six Heisman finalists to be invited to the award ceremony on Saturday. The only opportunity we really missed is being able to get that eighth win against Syracuse. I really wasnt worried about Heisman polls. The nations leading rusher with 175 yards per game and only the 16th player in FBS history to surpass 2,000 yards in a season, Williams was already at a nearby mall shopping for clothes for the Doak Walker Award ceremony when he learned in a text from associate athletic director Barry Gallup that he was a Heisman finalist. Williams won the Doak Walker, which is given to the nations top running back, on Thursday night. Now, he has a side trip to New York for todays Heisman ceremony. I just feel blessed to have the opportunity to go to the ceremony and be around these other great athletes, Williams said. Whoever wins it, congratulations to them, because its a monumental achievement. There was a time when running backs routinely brought home the Heisman. They won 11 straight from John Cappelletti in 1973 until Boston Colleges Doug Flutie interrupted the streak in 1984. Bo Jackson and Barry Sanders were also good enough to get their names on the trophy along with the quarterbacks and receivers in the 1980s, and four more rushers including Ricky Williams claimed it in the s. But as teams grew more passhappy in the new millennium, the Heisman has been almost exclusively a quarterbacking prize. Only Reggie Bush and Mark Ingram have broken through against a steady stream of quarterbacks 11 in 13 years. Winston is expected to make it 12 of 14 during a season in which he is on pace to break the NCAA record for passer efficiency rating (190.1) and has already set records for yards passing (3,820) and TD passes (38) for a freshman. Williams said he doesnt feel the need to carry the ball for ball-carriers. I love being a running back. I love representing running backs, he said. I dont necessarily think its unfair that its been quarterbacks high up in the Heisman contention lately. That position is hard to play. Its hard to be good at it. With the trend toward teams playing spread offenses and throwing the ball more, thats one of the things behind it. You have to have a good quarterback. But BC coach Steve Addazio said he would like to see the Heisman voters reward Williams, a senior who served as a teaching assistant for freshman seminar and is writing a novel in his spare time. Hes a well-rounded guy, Addazio said. Hes a guy who values and cherishes his education, his opportunity to play major college football, and being part of a team. Hes got a lot of different interests just like a typical college student would have. Hes not just all focused on football. Boston Colleges Williams rushes into Heisman conversation Associated PressBoston College senior running back Andre Williams has rushed for more than 2,000 yards and is a Heisman Trophy finalist. Associated PressPHILADELPHIA The Army-Navy series has long held its lofty spot as sports most patriotic rivalry, with pride, prestige and the Commander-in-Chiefs Trophy at stake for each service academy. Also on the line, Navys 11-game series winning streak, which has turned the annual regular-season finale into one of sports most lopsided rivalries, as well. Navy (7-4) has not only defeated Army 11 straight times, it has won 13 of the last 14 and 14 of 16. Armys (3-8) only wins over the last 16 years came in 2001 and 1998. Navys Ken Niumatalolo is trying to become the second coach in Mids history to start 6-0 against the Black Knights. With a win, Navy would retain the CIC Trophy, awarded to the team with the best record in games among the three service academies, for the second straight season. This is the game we want to win, Niumatalolo said, but we dont talk about the streak. This game usually ends the season for Army. Navy has one more game left against Middle Tennessee (8-4) in the Dec. 30 Armed Forces Bowl at Fort Worth, Texas. Billed as Americas Game, Lincoln Financial Field will be stuffed with Cadets and Midshipmen standing, bouncing and cheering the entire game. Beating Army has become an annual tradition for Navy. None of the Mids want to be associated with a team that ended the streak. Navys 17-13 win last season was the tightest margin since the winning streak started. Unlike previous games over the last decade, the Black Knights were in the game until their final 70-yard drive. Army had driven to the 14 when QB Trent Steelman and fullback Larry Dixon fumbled on a sloppy exchange. Navy recovered and the Midshipmen on the sideline went wild and rushed the field. It was painful, no doubt about that, but in this game, Army coach Rich Ellerson said, youve got to leave this stuff behind. Here are some things to know for the 114th ArmyNavy game. Navy leads the series 57-49-7.Kennedy gameThe 1963 game was the first major college sporting event played after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The game was pushed back a week because of the tragedy. Navy won 21-15 at Philadelphias Municipal Stadium. CBS Sports Network last month aired, Marching On: 1963 Army-Navy Remembered, a film watched by current Midshipmen and Black Knights. I learned really how much it is Americas Game, Army co-captain Michael Kime said. The nation leaned on a bunch of a 21-year-old guys playing football. By no means are we in that dire of stretch right now, but theres a sense of pride in that, definitely.ThrowbackYes, fans can follow todays game on Twitter at @Army_Navy_Game. But the real fun comes in scrolling the feeds timeline and finding its live tweets of the Dec 7, 1963 game. The tweets included everything from scoring summaries, key plays and video highlights of perhaps the most famous game in the series storied history. The tweets also show some things havent changed over the years: Looking to snap a losing streak, QB Rollie Stichweh later talked about the pressure Army faced.Moving onNavy is winding down its time as an independent and will join the American Athletic Conference in 2015. Navy AD Chet Gladchuk said the Mids should still have winning records and bowl bids, even as part of a conference. Those are teams we would play whether we were independent or in the conference, he said. Weve tried to schedule some of those teams in the past and theyve opted not to schedule us. Now, theyll have to play us. Going into the AAC, were not going in to compete, were going in to win it. Navy tries to keep streak going against Army Winston knew he would be vindicated Jameis Winston

B6SATURDAY, DECEMBER14, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Final campaign Crystal River senior tied for team lead in victoriesTONYCASTRO CorrespondentCrystal River senior Nick Hooper shares the same ultimate goal as over 7,000 of his Florida brethren a trip to the 50th FHSAA Wrestling Finals on Feb. 1415 in Lakeland. Nick, who was born in Fort Lauderdale as the youngest of five children to Citrus Springs Bill and Honey Hooper, has one distinct advantage: hes been there and done that. The current 6-foot, 152pound Hooper has always had the physical tools to compete. Once he matriculated to Lecanto High School, he retraced his brother Williams steps to the mats. I remember watching him when I was in fifth-, sixthand seventh-grade, Hooper recalled. I chose to wrestle because Im a really competitive guy and I like to win, he said. And when I started, I found out I was pretty successful at it. On whats kept him on the mats: Wrestling is an individual sport where you can stand out on your own, Hooper noted. And I like competing under pressure. When youre out there its all on your shoulders not anyone elses. Nick immediately noticed the similarities with his brother William. William currently serves as an assistant coach to sixthyear skipper Scot Roberts. We both wrestled in the same weight class, Hooper said. And he was a very offensive-type guy. I tend to be that way too. Hoopers current strength is on his feet. In the neutral position, Im pretty good on my feet, he said. Takedowns are what Im best at. Finishing out matches is whats hes lacking. Ive really focused on takedowns, but Im not much of a finisher, Hooper admitted. Three weeks into the season, Hooper also realizes his cardio isnt at 100 percent. I think my cardio is where it needs to be, but theres always room for improvement. In his first season on the mats, Hooper posted a respectable .500 ledger at 13-13. His seasonal highlights include a pair of wins over Land O Lakes Mike Milillo and Ridgewoods Matt Wishon during the Class 2A, District 7 Tournament at Springstead High at 112 pounds to place fourth and advance to regionals. But in the following weeks Class 2A, Region II Meet, aka The Region of Doom at Avon Park Hooper was shown the door via a 64-second pin and a subsequent technical fall. Following his freshman year, he transferred to Crystal River. His seasonal highlights included going 3-1 and placing third behind a pin over Anclotes Ricky Crawford in the Class 1A, District 8 Tournament at 126 pounds at Fivay. The following week at 1A-II Meet at LakelandTenoroc, he went 3-2 and placed fourth to reach the sports elite stage at the Jenkins Arena inside The Lakeland Civic Center. Hoopers state dreams, however, were short-lived. Tampa-Robinsons David Nguyen dropped him into the losers bracket thanks to a 9-3 decision. Southport-Bozemans Johnathan Kenney concluded Hoopers stay with a 42-second pin in Round 2. He finished the season 21-12. Last winter, Hooper finished second at 132 pounds in the 1A-8 Tourney at Anclote, losing via a pin to Pascos Niko DeAugustino in 3:23. At the following weeks 1A-II Tourney again at Tenoroc, Hooper finished one agonizing victory short of returning to states he was eliminated in the final wrestleback round via a pin by Titusvilles Matthew Seymour. Despite the setback, Hooper concluded his bestever season at 26-10. He enters this weekends Belleview Duals tied for a team-best 11 victories with classmate Justin Burcroff. Hoopers coming off a fine second-place finish at last weekends rugged Brooksville-Kiwanis Invite. In the finals, he tumbled at the hands of Indian Rocks Christians Conner Allshouse, 9-0. Im not OK with second, declared the 18-yearold Hooper. In the finals, my guy did a good job of riding me out. This is the first time Ive placed here. I would have loved to have done better, he added. No one wants to lose when you get to the finals. I feel like I could have been more intense. On his short and longterm goals, Id like to try and get 100 career wins and I definitely want to be at the podium at states, he said. Hooper believes hes improved the most on the mats between the ears. Ive improved the most mentally, noted Hooper. Before a match Im just listening to music. Music blocks out everything, helping me focus at what I have to do. In the practice room, Hooper credits his partner Michael Allen, Hes a state qualifier and he pushes me hard in practice every day, insisted Hooper. So does my brother. Hooper, who carries a 3.2 unweighted and 3.4 weighted grade point average, is unsure of what he wants to study in the future. Id love to go to college and wrestle, he said. Right now, Im undecided as far as a major. In his spare time, Hooper is preparing for wrestling. I have to thank my coaches, my brother and Michael Allen for getting me this far, Hooper said. This weekend is a big deal at Belleview. We want us to be the countys big dog. My individual goal is to be in the state finals. MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleCrystal River senior Nick Hooper, left, has improved his record each year and currently has 11 wins through Thursday. DAVIDPIEKLIK CorrespondentIts 0-0 late in the game when the shot from 18 yards out heads for the top right corner of the goal; a shot hes seen go over his head and in every time before. Theres no chance to think of the past in the second before the ball gets to him. Dakota Gruzdas sizes up the shot, picks his angle and leaps into the night sky. Youre either a hero or a zero on whatever you do, Gruzdas said. As soccer goalkeepers, Gruzdas, Kyle Kidd and Ryan Stevens are the last line of defense for the 24feet long and 8-feet high goal theyve sworn to protect. With hundreds of saves in his three years at Crystal River, Kidds teammates highly regard him. When you have respect from your teammates, that makes you play even harder, Kidd said. Occupying arguably the toughest spot on the pitch, the three are like soccer forensics experts. Knowing a players aiming preference when shooting, what his strong foot is, watching the angle of his hips, even the condition of the pitch if a ball is likely to take a funny hop all come into play. Gruzdas, a sophomore at Citrus, sums it up: This is all going through your mind 100 miles-per-hour as the play is going on. Josh Brown, who splits goalkeeping with Stevens at Lecanto, acknowledges the extra pressure the position brings. (Its) definitely the toughest and most critiqued. If you make a mistake back in the goal, then its a goal. But if someone makes a mistake on the field, then its just another mistake, Brown said. So what separates the average from the truly talented goalies? I almost feel like its more reactions than anything, Kidd offered. Stevens believes its all about positioning, adding, I mean, you can be agile all you want, you can make those super impressive diving saves, but it makes your job a lot better if you have really good positioning. Which leads back to Gruzdas and that leap. Recounting the play, he said with a grin he is vertically impaired heightwise, and has been practicing for such moments on and off the pitch. The shot reaches him at the pinnacle of his perfectly-timed jump, he punches the ball safely over the crossbar and falls back to earth. The crowd roars as Gruzdas gets back to his feet, minutes before his team scores the game-winning goal. I heard a couple of cheers when I stood up, a big smile came across my face as I saw our three defenders coming back to give me a high five and a hug, he remembers. It was a great moment for me and I think it was a great moment for our defenders. Local prep keepers excel in face of adversity SportsBRIEFS Vikings Peterson questionable for game vs. EaglesEDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Adrian Peterson returned to practice Friday for the Minnesota Vikings, but his status for Sundays game against the Philadelphia Eagles is questionable because of a sprained right foot. Peterson practiced after being held out on Wednesday and Thursday. The leagues second-leading rusher with 1,221 yards spent the earlier part of the week in a walking boot. Petersons backup, Toby Gerhart, is dealing with a hamstring injury and is questionable for Minnesota (3-9-1).Jaguars JonesDrew doubtful for Bills gameJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars will likely be without starting running back Maurice JonesDrew and strong safety Johnathan Cyprien on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Both players were listed as doubtful Friday, JonesDrew with a strained hamstring and Cyprien with a thigh injury. Cyprien, a rookie from Florida International, has been in on every defensive snap this season. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley held out a slight hope that one or both players might be ready Sunday. From wire reports Saban signs long-term deal with Bama Associated PressAlabama coach Nick Saban is staying put. The university announced on its Twitter account Friday night that the football coach has reached a long-term agreement to remain with the Crimson Tide. Alabama didnt release terms of the new deal, which must be approved by the board of trustees. Saban received an eight-year deal in March 2012 worth about $5.6 million annually and seems likely to remain college footballs highest-paid coach. The agreement quells speculation that Saban would take over at Texas if Mack Brown steps down. Saban, who turned 62 on Oct. 31, has led the Tide to three national championships in the past four years with no signs of fading from annual contention. The third-ranked Tide was on the verge of another Southeastern Conference, and perhaps national title, before losing 34-28 to No. 2 Auburn in the regularseason finale on a last-play 109yard return of a missed field goal. Alabama will play Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 2 in New Orleans. Saban has said multiple times that hes too old to go someplace else and start over. Im very committed to the University of Alabama, love being here, he said in November. Weve talked about it before. Dont need to talk about it again. But that didnt stop the speculation and rumors that he was bound for Texas amid reports that Brown was on his way out. Brown didnt address his future at Texas at Friday nights annual team banquet, while acknowledging distractions for his team. The Longhorns (8-4) will face Oregon in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30. Brown met with school President Bill Powers and athletic director Steve Patterson before the banquet. Patterson declined to say what was discussed or if any conclusion had been reached. Saban is 74-14 in seven seasons at Alabama, with at least 11 wins in five of the last six years and a string of top-rated recruiting classes. The Tide was trying to become the first team to win three straight national titles since the 1930s. Saban has been mentioned as a candidate for various openings in the NFL and college during his tenure. Thats no surprise given his track record in the college ranks. Saban is the only coach to win four BCS national titles, including the 2003 championship at LSU. He returned to the SEC after going 15-17 in two seasons with the Miami Dolphins. At Texas, several university regents and a former regent were involved in a meeting with Sabans agent last January to gauge the coachs interest in coming to Texas. According to an email detailing that phone meeting and obtained by The Associated Press, Sabans agent, Jimmy Sexton, told Texas representatives that Texas was the only job Saban would leave Alabama for, and that Saban was under special pressure at his current job.Pressure mounting as Brown mulls decisionAUSTIN, Texas The Mack Brown saga at Texas continues even without Nick Saban in the picture any more. In a short, energetic speech at his teams annual banquet, Brown acknowledged the distractions his team faced over rumors and reports that he would be resign or be fired after 16 seasons, but ended only with a plea for his team to beat Oregon in the Alamo Bowl. Brown did not directly address the speculation swirling around his job, but news of Alabamas new contract with Nick Saban, a coach some Texas officials hoped to lure to the Longhorns, rippled through the banquet minutes before Brown gave his speech. Brown gave no indication he plans to step down. His lively speech seemed to lift the somber tone of the banquet and he told new athletic director Steve Patterson that hes looking forward to working with him. Brown lingered long after the banquet was over to chat with recruits and their families.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, DECEMBER 14, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE About 10 years ago, I attended a seminar for religion writers, How Religion Shapes Regional and Community Identity. A panel of prestigious people with prestigious titles from prestigious institutions and organizations came to talk to us about how in the world we should cover this thing called religion. They talked about how religion affects art and about the phenomenon of megachurches. One person even talked about Elvis as a religious icon, complete with followers who make pilgrimages to the religious-sounding Graceland. The people at the table tossed around words like religiosity and diversity, ritual, heritage and spiritual and discussed demographics and trends and the supermarket mentality of people choosing a religious institution that fits their needs. I remember sitting there thinking that it was all very interesting, in a statistical, intellectual, antiseptic sort of way and utterly devoid of Jesus. I also remember that, despite his obvious exclusion in the program, Jesus showed up anyway, although Im pretty sure the religion experts didnt notice. Jesus came as the man sitting next to me leaned over and said, Im Jewish, but I really like Jesus. Sometimes you encounter people and engage in polite, yet forgettable, chitchat. Other times, God shows up in a big way, right in the middle of your conversation and youre left awe-struck. As the religion experts discussed the new immigrants and the religions they bring with them to America, I asked the man next to me, Tell me about Jesus what do you like about him? His eyes lit up as he said, I like that he got his hands dirty and that he didnt have an ego. It almost makes me cry his selflessness. He added, I dont think Jesus would like this meeting. The man his name was Richard told me he loved the idea of faith and about how, a few weeks earlier for the first time ever, he prayed to Jesus. And he answered! he said. Jesus had touched him in a way he had never been touched before. Then, because hes a journalist, he asked me questions. Do you think Jesus will come back in your lifetime? I said I didnt know. When you see Jesus, do you think youll cry? Yes, Im sure I will, I said. Then he asked me what I thought heaven would be like. I told him I thought we would have really great jobs; maybe God will let us be journalists. Richard added, Without egos and jealousies and competitiveness. I laughed at that time, he and I competed in some of the same writing contests. In between all the religiosity mumbojumbo we had come to listen to, this man and I experienced church. In stark contrast to the careful, Jesus-free talk going on in the conference room, this man unashamedly spoke of Jesus. Not the man upstairs or a generic God, but Jesus. Reverently, passionately, name above all names, Jesus. As the hymn goes, its the name that charms our fears and bids our sorrows Where Jesus fits in the picture Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES RELIGION NOTES The case of Temple Bnai Zion v. City of Sunny Isles Beach and its mayor, Norman Edelcup, makes claims of religious discrimination, government harassment and interference with property rights. The temples president, Rabbi Aaron Lankry, wants to modify the structure formerly a Lutheran church to more properly befit an Orthodox Jewish congregation. The temples lawsuit contends that the city conjured up the historic designation as a pretext to improperly prevent any changes to the temple. And, the lawsuit contends, much of the problem stems from a personal dispute between Lankry, Edelcup and other Jewish members of the city commission who left the temple after he arrived in 2004 as it moved from Conservative to the more strictly observant Orthodox Judaism. Caught in the middle is a separate Orthodox congregation, Beit Rambam, which also worships at the temple and has no issues with the historic designation. Bnai Zion has filed a separate lawsuit against that congregation, claiming it is violating terms of its lease. The main case was originally dismissed by a Miami federal judge, but the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this year overturned that ruling. The appeals judges sent the case back for a decision on the temples claim that the city historic designation was done for discriminatory reasons and interferes with the congregations religious practices. The case is one of several brought by religious organizations See SACRED/ Page C7 See GRACE/ Page C2 Sacred showdown Associated PressAn interior view of of the Beit Rambam Congregation in Sunny Isles Beach, Fla.

Not in the dry esoteric/ ritual and tradition/Power Point presentation Christianity as one of many world religions way that had been discussed in the seminar, but in the awe-struck, Nothing in my hand I bring, simply to Thy cross I cling way. The Jesus, I have nowhere else to go with my sin but to you way. He smiled. A Christian? You think so? he asked. Yes, I think so, I told him. He smiled through the rest of the seminar. Im smiling now as I remember how, without charts and graphs and statistics Jesus simply and quietly showed up in a conference room and entered two strangers conversation, and as religion went on all around them, he brought life in his name. Like Richard, I think I really like Jesus, too. Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

NEWS NOTES My pastor talked last night about how his dad made him do chores as a teenager. I went into my memory bank and remembered standing on a chair to do my fair share of the dishes. I hated it. But I whined my way through it like most children probably do. Somehow I felt if I had to do the dishes on a Sunday night while Disney was on TV, the whole world was against me and unfair to the largest degree I could imagine. I had paper routes from the time I was 12 to 15. Later, I was in high school and we had six kids in our family. The clothing budget for school was very limited. I was embarrassed to wear what my mother was able to buy. I began to get part-time jobs after school to buy my own clothing. I did not fully realize what I was learning. The pride in working for what I was earning honestly. Budgeting and business skills. Usable skills for life. I went to work stocking a hardware store when I was 16 and did that until I graduated high school. In an oldfashioned hardware store, I learned handyman skills that I use to this day. Work is essential to life. Everyone produces something, good or bad. Productive or unproductive. Even though we have to learn how to work, we are meant to work. I have watched the men at the shelter dip into depression when they cant work. Their self-esteem drops. We do our fair share of working our clients on the farm and at our bargain stores but, eventually, people need jobs to support themselves. What it took me years to realize is how long and what it takes for a person to become job ready when life has hammered you. But, I believe to the bottom of my heart that rescue missions across this country, all 300 of them, are Americas best solution for people to go back to work or get new training to find a job in a different field. We are working on an educational committee as you read this and I think The Path is well on its way to helping people to go back to work. To me, it is one of the most distasteful things in life when someone actually wants to work and cannot.DuWayne Sipper is the executive director of The Path of Citrus County, a faith-based homeless shelter.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER14, 2013 C5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.George Bernard Shaw said, A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. At the bridge table, we make a lot of mistakes. But with luck, as we gain experience, we make fewer of them. This week, we have been handling the trump suit. Here is one last example lets get it right! West leads the diamond king against six spades. How should declarer plan the play? The South hand is very honorable, with, in Chicago and rubber-bridge scoring, 150 in aces and 150 in spades. It also has 11 winners. Can partner produce an extra trick or two? In this auction, Souths jump to three spades showed a solid suit, set that suit as trumps, and asked partner if he had anything. Norths raise to four spades denied an ace or a king. Souths leap to six spades was understandable, although risky with those two losing diamonds. South must discard one diamond from the dummy on his third top heart and ruff his last diamond in the dummy. He wins with his diamond ace, cashes the three top hearts, and exits with a diamond. He takes the next trick and ruffs his last diamond with dummys spade eight, so theres no risk of an overruff. Then he draws trumps and claims. Finally, note that this is one deal in which the very bad trump split was lucky. If West had been able to lead a trump, and the defender who took the diamond trick could have led another trump, the slam would have failed.

You rightfully suggested she talk to her doctor to see whether there is something they could do to remedy the problem. However, when you write that intimacy is important, but it isnt everything, I think youve missed the point about sexless marriage: Its entirely possible to be in a committed relationship without sex, but its incredibly important to keep the intimacy alive in other ways. People sometimes identify the act of sex as the only validation of love and caring between a couple, but there are other love acts that have a bigger impact on a relationship, like hugging and touching and kissing. My husbands libido took a nosedive several years ago, and it was a rough period for me because I am 13 years younger and had just hit my sexual prime. It took some adjusting of mindset, but when I realized that the other good stuff wasnt going out the window, things suddenly werent as bad as I thought. I do miss the incredible intimacy that sex brings, but I also love the fact that I get sweet, sometimes passionate kisses. Then theres the romantic act of hand-holding (even in public!) and hugging. And that makes all the difference. So, Frustrated, find different ways to enjoy that intimacy with your wife. Learning Curve Dear Learning: We agree that there are many ways to show intimacy, but it requires the cooperation of both partners. Our readers had a lot to say on this subject. Read on for more: From New York: Perhaps Frustrated could suggest to his wife that one-way pleasure is a possible, if occasional, solution to their mismatched libidos. If you love someone, you can enjoy giving pleasure without expecting anything in return. Boston: My wife and I were experiencing the lack of desire for frequent intimacy until we went to a homeopathic practitioner and received supplements to her diet that corrected some hormone levels. Happily, one of the benefits was improved libido, and we are now happy, happy, happy. Florida: Frustrated complains that he has sex with his extremely attractive wife maybe once every two weeks. I say: What are you complaining about? There are far too many of us on the opposite end of the spectrum who would gladly trade places with him. Im 45, shes 43 and still hot, but its been years since weve had sex. Ive tried everything except couples counseling (she wont go). Im in decent physical shape, have a well-paying job and do my share in taking care of the children and the house. However, all romance, intimacy, handholding, kissing and physical contact are initiated by me and are rebuffed too often for me to make further attempts. Apparently, watching 15 hours of television every week is more important to her than an hour of intimacy once a month. Texas: Agreed, intimacy isnt everything. However, I believe intimacy is the foundation of a marriage and should not be minimized. I feel his pain. My relationship with my wife of 30 years is very similar. My advice is: If this is a deal breaker, then divorce is the only real answer. Rejection from the wife you love and cherish is beyond painful. You can concentrate on the many other good qualities in your relationship, but the sad reality is, it can be empty and unfulfilling without intimacy. Intimacy starts at the kitchen table or maybe with a phone conversation. A connection must be made. Counting how many times in a month you have sex is not intimacy.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

The law bars state and local governments from imposing a substantial burden through land use regulations on the free exercise of religion, unless the government can show it has a compelling interest. The U.S. Supreme Court has never defined substantial burden in these types of cases, leading to different rulings in different parts of the country. In South Florida, Bnai Zion attorney Daniel Wallach said Lankry has one overarching goal in pursuing the lawsuit, originally filed in 2010. He wants the historic designation removed from the property. It inhibits the temples growth. It reduces the value of the property, Wallach said. That is a burden on his property rights. Former Miami U.S. Attorney Kendall Coffey, who represents Sunny Isles Beach and its mayor, said rather than religious freedom, the major concern of Bnai Zion is how the historic designation affects the propertys value. Coffey noted that Edelcup and several other city officials involved in the decision are also Jewish. They are alleging anti-Jewish discrimination on the part of public officials, the vast majority of whom are Jewish, Coffey said. Its far-fetched, although the plaintiff (Bnai Zion) has an obvious financial motive. Sunny Isles Beach is a small seaside city northeast of Miami with about 21,000 residents. Founded less than a century ago, it has only one property designated as historic: the Bnai Zion temple. The citys preservation board has left out some other buildings that might be considered in that category, such as the 67-year-old Golden Strand Hotel where baseball slugger Babe Ruth once lived and which hosted celebrities such as Burt Lancaster, Grace Kelly and Gary Cooper. Other buildings on its Motel Row at times hosted the Beatles, Ray Charles and Ike and Tina Turner, among others. The temple purchased its current property in 1977 from a Lutheran church, removed Christian symbolism such as the stained glass and minimized the crossshaped design of the sanctuary. A cross atop a front tower was replaced with a Star of David. The preservation board twice before considered whether to designate the temple as historic, but the proposal was discarded both times. As its congregation grew, Bnai Zion applied for new building permits that included demolishing the main building. Those were rejected, and the city hired a historic preservation consultant to determine if the temple could meet historic criteria. Meanwhile, according to the temples lawsuit, the city issued 12 code enforcement citations against Bnai Zion over a 16-month period for such things as improper wiring and unsightly objects on the temple property. The city has embarked on a relentless campaign of harassment against the temple, the lawsuit says. Court documents recount several contentious meetings between Lankry and Edelcup, including one occasion when the mayor allegedly referred to Bnai Zion members as a bunch of pigs. The rabbi was later accused during a public meeting of calling a Jewish city commissioner an anti-Semite. The historic preservation consultants report, delivered in 2010, recommended the temple as a historic site because of the 2004 gathering of about 300 Holocaust survivors in one of its buildings, even though other such gatherings had been held elsewhere. The preservation board approved the recommendation for the temple sanctuary, an outer tower and its portico meaning none of those structures could be altered or demolished. The city fastened the historic plaque on the church shortly after the vote. One Sunny Isles Beach commissioner, George Bud Schull, said at a 2010 meeting that the city was making a mistake. The core issue is, are we going to burden somebodys property rights and take something away from them over some arguments that I think are a little flimsy, personally? he said. I dont really buy into the veracity of these arguments. Still, the historic designation was approved and the current lengthy court battle has followed. Left in limbo is the current congregation of about 100 families leasing the property, Beit Rambam. That groups attorney, Philippe Lieberman, said they are fighting eviction and are fine with leaving the temple as it is, historic designation included. My client enjoys the premises, wants to stay at the premises, wants to worship there, he said. Were happy there. The case is currently before U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams, who has set a December 2014 trial date. The two sides are currently in mediation, under the judges orders, to try and work out a solution. The mediator, also Jewish, is handling the case for free in hopes the two sides can reach an accord.RELIGIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, DECEMBER14, 2013 C7 Fax: (352) 563-5665 l Toll Free: (888) 852-2340 l Email: classifieds@chronicleonline.com l website: www.chronicleonline.com To place an ad, call563-5966 Chronicle ClassifiedsClassifieds In Print and Online All The Time699186 000GT1N 000GT1J Todays New Ads Jazzy Electric Wheel Chair, Model 1170XL Like new, $700. make offer (352) 621-5340 JEWELRYARMOIRE Mahogany, 40 inches tall.
