MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerFLORAL CITYShannon Burns was just a child when her family moved to this Citrus County hamlet. Burns, now 42, recalls growing up on oak tree-lined streets where everyone knew each other. Doors were not locked at night, and neighbors greeted each other with a smile. As she grew older, her impression of Floral City never changed. It grew, a bit, but stayed the small town of her youth. Its also a vibrant community. Buoyed by the Withlacoochee State Trail and historic Avenue of Oaks, Floral City is a hub of activity on most weekends and during special occasions, such as the annual Heritage Days that took place in early December. Burns, an enthusiastic supporter of Floral City, plays a major role in that vibrancy. As co-owner with her mother of Aunt Marthas Produce Market on U.S. 41 near the County Road 48 intersection, Burns sees and hears everything. And now shes putting that knowledge to use as president of the Floral City Merchants Association, an organization of about 40 to 50 members.CHRONICLE: Tell me how you got involved in the association. BURNS: I really did not want to get involved. But then I started listening to the businesspeople talk and thought, You know, I can sit there and complain, or I can go do something. So we joined, very quietly, just in the background and somehow I became the vice president last year. This year, I got a call a month ago ... Dudley (Calfee) asked if I would take over as president. So, here we sit today. CHRONICLE: What does the group do? BURNS: Its a businesspersons association so that we can work together. If we try to work Floral Citys fresh face POLL DECEMBER 16, 2013Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best CommunityVOL. 119 ISSUE 131 50 CITRUS COUNTY INDEX Classifieds................B8 Comics....................B7 Crossword................B6 Editorial..................A10 Entertainment..........A4 Food Programs........A9 Horoscope................A4 Lottery Numbers......B3 Lottery Payouts........B3 Movies......................B7 Obituaries................A6 TV Listings................B6 ONLINE POLL:Your choice?Do you think U.S. House Republicans were wise to spurn hardline conservatives in favor of a budget compromise?

Those politicians are always caving in too quickly. Pearlie Reyes I love the nativity, but I would rather have none if mixed with all the other (cra-). Bookaneers I think if people want to celebrate a day that is significant to them they should go through the process of getting another day recognized as a national holiday and then push to get people to celebrate it. But Christmas is a holiday that celebrates the Christ story, so a nativity is appropriate. Why do they all even want their holiday lumped together with it? No one is taking anything away from their national/ethnic holiday by celebrating Christmas, but those other holidays do not happen to be national holidays in the U.S. They either need to get their holiday recognized nationally or they need to get the nation to change Christmas to Santas Spending Day, National Recognize-Everyones-Religion Day, Holy Happy Day, or some other neutral day. But for now, CHRISTMAS is the national holiday deal with it. Skip Brady There would be no need for any celebrations if it was not for CHRISTmas. These folks need to step back and LISTEN to hear (and understand) and not just listen, to respond! Our government has taken a HUGE step backward in recent years at all levels and the results speak for themselves. Are you listening? Contribute!

MondayCONVERSATION Mandela laid to rest Associated PressQUNU, South Africa His flag-draped casket resting on a carpet of animal skins, Nelson Mandela was laid to rest Sunday in the green, rolling hills of the eastern hamlet where he began his extraordinary journey one that led him from prison to the presidency, a global symbol of endurance and reconciliation in the fight against South Africas racist rule. Artillery boomed and military aircraft roared through a cloud-studded sky, as the simple and the celebrated gathered to pay their final respects in Mandelas native village of Qunu at a state funeral that blended ancient tribal rituals with a display of the might of the new, integrated South Africa. Yours was truly a long walk to freedom and now you have achieved the ultimate freedom in the bosom of your maker, Brig. Gen.

Acting County Attorney Kerry Parsons will ask the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) to authorize her to develop a proposed ordinance outlining the way to dispose of county real property and to provide a recommendation on the best means for the potential sale of the county detention facility. According to background information in the agenda, a private entity has asked about buying the detention facility. It proposed contracting with the county to house county prisoners based on an agreed daily rate. Under Florida Statutes, a county has means to sell its real property to the highest and best bidder through a competitive bid process. As an alternative, statutes allow the county to set standards for selling or disposing of property through a local ordinance.

I want to congratulate the board on having a clear prioritization for whats important in this county. FDOT reports its program each year to the counties, Royal said. The agency looks at the progress with ongoing projects and secures its investment in them. Then, it goes into development.

Eagles give gifts to 85 childrenCHRISVANORMER Staff writerHOMOSASSA Gleaming new bikes, stuffed stockings and piles of colorful packages greeted the 85 children on Sunday who attended a Christmas party with Santa Claus. Crystal River Eagles Aerie 4272 spent a lot of time in fundraising and effort at the aerie to make sure Christmas was special for those children from Lecanto Primary School. Organizers Kay Rowland and Donna Harris gave credit to the many folks who made the party possible. The Eagle Riders, the Aeries and the auxiliary pitched in. Rowland and Harris got donations for party treats from McDonalds and Papa Johns. Others who helped were Two Guys from Italy and Homosassa Fishing Club, to name a few. The Eagle Riders did a poker run, Rowland said. Thats what raised the majority of the money for all of this. Members did their best to follow the wish list of each child in selecting the gifts. They are mostly toys, Rowland said. There are a few clothes. There was one family that told us their child desperately needed shoes, so we got shoes. The Eagles also helped children who recently lost their home to a fire. The club had a wrapping party on Saturday, making sure each gift would be a surprise to the child who opened it. Ladies of the club made cookies, Harris said. Eagle Harry Jackson, who already had the whiskers, donned the red suit to hand out the presents.

WILLWEISSERT Associated PressAUSTIN, Texas The latest scion of one of Americas most powerful political dynasties is trying to convince voters hes something other than what his famous surname suggests. George P. Bush, Jeb Bushs 37-year-old son who is a grandson of one former president and nephew of another, is launching his political career by running for Texas little-known but powerful land commissioner post. But rather than campaigning on the mainstream Republicanism embodied by the family name, Bush says hes a movement conservative more in line with the tea party. As if to underscore the point, he says he draws the most inspiration not from the administrations of his grandfather, George H. W. Bush, or his uncle, George W. Bush, but from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who engineered the 1994 Republican takeover of that chamber. On social questions, national defense, economic issues, Im a strong conservative, Bush told The Associated Press. That kind of statement helps make him the latest and perhaps one of the more unlikely faces in the parade of Republicans marching even farther to the right in already fiercely conservative Texas. As he takes baby steps away from the Bush legacy, George P. could struggle to convince the partys far right that hes really more conservative than either of his elders who have occupied the Oval Office. A Bush cant be a true conservative, said Morgan McComb, a North Texas tea party activist and organizer. Bush insists that hes up to the challenge, noting that he was an early supporter of tea party hero Sen. Ted Cruz, who after less than a year in the Senate has rocketed from relative political unknown to ruler of the Texas GOP Thats something that we bring to the table thats different, Bush said. Were a mainstream conservative that appeals to all Republicans. James Bernsen, Cruzs former campaign spokesman, said the Bushes walk in certain circles, and some of those people might put their nose up at Ted sometimes, but George P. tries to cross that divide. George recognizes that its a blessing and a curse to have that last name, Bernsen said. Theres a reason hes not really being challenged on the ballot. But he also realizes theres a lot of people who will be very skeptical of him. The Texas land commissioner administers stateowned lands and mineral resources that help pay for public education statewide. The position can be a springboard to higher office. The incumbent commissioner, Jerry Patterson, is running for lieutenant governor. And the incumbent lieutenant governor hes challenging, David Dewhurst, served as land commissioner before winning his current job. Squaring off against Bush are former El Paso Democratic Mayor John Cook and Republican East Texas businessman David Watts. But Bush has raked in more than $3.3 million and is expected to cruise to victory both in the Republican primary in March and the November general election. Republicans have not lost a statewide race in Texas since 1994. But Bushs rightward drift comes with risks. It might hurt his image as a next-generation Republican who could reach out to Texas booming Hispanic population. Bush is a fluent Spanish speaker whose mother, Columba, was born in Mexico. Hispanics vote overwhelmingly Democratic, but Bush said many also agree with the GOP on social issues, opposing abortion and large government. Im willing to stand behind this concept, that as conservatives we can win the Hispanic vote without selling out the values, Bush said. I dont think we need to compromise. Bush says he wants to embody conservative activism while still leaving room to govern. He refused to endorse the Cruzled effort to defund the White Houses health care overhaul, which sparked a partial government shutdown. Bush called the measure a monstrosity but also said the only option left was to look for market-based solutions to reform it. We need to get back to being the party of solutions, Bush said. Gingrichs leadership in 1994 was the last great case study where you saw a conservative party that came forward with solutions on the big issues of the day. Born in Houston, Bush grew up in Florida, where his father, Jeb, was governor from 1998 until 2007. After college, he taught school in inner-city Miami, worked on his uncles presidential campaign and earned a law degree from the University of Texas. He also clerked for a federal judge and founded a capital company in Fort Worth, where he now lives. In 2010, he served an eight-month tour in Afghanistan with naval intelligence under an assumed name for security reasons. Those close to the Bushes shrugged off any suggestion that some family members might be irked to see George P. distancing himself from the clan. The only thing the Bush family cares about is that George P. follow his convictions, whatever they are, said Mark McKinnon, a GOP strategist and former advisor to George W. Bushs presidential campaigns. Karen Hughes, a former spokeswoman and diplomat for the George W. Bush White House, said any candidate runs based on his or her fundamental values and priorities, and that is true regardless of your last name. Others who know the family said Gingrichs Contract With America, which was on the cutting edge of activist conservatism in 1994, is now far more mainstream for the GOP as a whole including the Bushes. Still, Cathie Adams, president of the Texas Eagle Forum, a socially conservative activist group, said Bushs claiming of the movement conservative mantle isnt credible given the shadow his family has cast over state and national politics for so long.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, DECEMBER16, 2013 A5 000GQG6 000GWQB NEW OFFICE LOCATION Announces the NEW OFFICE LOCATION NEW OFFICE LOCATION of his new practice Call 228-4975 Comprehensive foot and ankle care for the entire family.

Associated PressLONDON Known on the one hand for his starring role in Lawrence of Arabia, leading tribesmen in daring attacks across the desert wastes, and on the other for his headlong charges into drunken debauchery, Peter OToole was one of the most magnetic, charismatic and fun figures in British acting. OToole, who died Saturday at age 81 at the private Wellington Hospital in London after a long bout of illness, was nominated a record eight times for an Academy Award without taking home a single statue. He was fearsomely handsome, with burning blue eyes and a penchant for hard living which long outlived his decision to give up alcohol. Broadcaster Michael Parkinson told Sky News television it was hard to be too sad about his passing. Peter didnt leave much of life unlived, did he? he said. A reformed but unrepentant hell-raiser, OToole long suffered from ill health. Always thin, he had grown wraithlike in later years, his famously handsome face eroded by years of outrageous drinking. But nothing diminished his flamboyant manner and candor. If you cant do something willingly and joyfully, then dont do it, he once said. If you give up drinking, dont go moaning about it; go back on the bottle. Do. As. Thou. Wilt. OToole began his acting career as one of the most exciting young talents on the British stage. His 1955 Hamlet, at the Bristol Old Vic, was critically acclaimed. International stardom came in David Leans Lawrence of Arabia. With only a few minor movie roles behind him, OToole was unknown to most moviegoers when they first saw him as T.E. Lawrence, the mythic British World War I soldier and scholar who led an Arab rebellion against the Turks. His sensitive portrayal of Lawrences complex character garnered OToole his first Oscar nomination, and the spectacularly photographed desert epic remains his best known role. OToole was tall, fair and strikingly handsome, and the image of his bright blue eyes peering out of an Arab headdress in Leans film was unforgettable. Playwright Noel Coward once said that if OToole had been any prettier, they would have had to call the movie Florence of Arabia. Prime Minister David Cameron said Sunday the movie was his favorite film, calling OTooles performance stunning. In 1964s Becket, OToole played King Henry II to Richard Burtons Thomas Becket, and won another Oscar nomination. Burton shared OTooles fondness for drinking, and their off-set carousing made headlines. OToole played Henry again in 1968 in The Lion in Winter, opposite Katharine Hepburn, for his third Oscar nomination. Four more nominations followed: in 1968 for Goodbye, Mr. Chips, in 1971 for The Ruling Class, in 1980 for The Stunt Man, and in 1982 for My Favorite Year. It was almost a quartercentury before he received his eighth and last, for Venus. Seamus Peter OToole was born Aug. 2, 1932, the son of Irish bookie Patrick Spats OToole and his wife Constance. There is some question about whether Peter was born in Connemara, Ireland, or in Leeds, northern England, where he grew up, but he maintained close links to Ireland, even befriending the countrys nowpresident, Michael D. Higgins. Ireland and the world have lost one of the giants of film and theater, Higgins said in a statement. After a teenage foray into journalism at the Yorkshire Evening Post and national military service with the navy, a young OToole auditioned for the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and won a scholarship. He went from there to the Bristol Old Vic and soon was on his way to stardom, helped along by an early success in 1959 at Londons Royal Court Theatre in The Long and The Short and The Tall. The image of the renegade hell-raiser stayed with OToole for decades, although he gave up drinking in 1975 following serious health problems and major surgery. He did not, however, give up smoking unfiltered Gauloises cigarettes in an ebony holder. That and his penchant for green socks, voluminous overcoats and trailing scarves lent him a rakish air and suited his fondness for drama in the old-fashioned bravura manner. A month before his 80th birthday in 2012, OToole announced his retirement from a career that he said had fulfilled him emotionally and financially, bringing me together with fine people, good companions with whom Ive shared the inevitable lot of all actors: flops and hits. However, its my belief that one should decide for oneself when it is time to end ones stay, he said. So I bid the profession a dry-eyed and profoundly grateful farewell.

Cronk Sr., age 83, of Inverness, Fla., will be at 2p.m. Wednesday, Dec.18, 2013, at the Inverness Chapel of Hooper Funeral Homes & Crematory with the Rev. Sarah Campbell officiating.

Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer together, as businesspeople, and help each other out, then not only will our businesses succeed but also Floral City as a whole will succeed. Thats what were trying to do make it more of a hometown feel. ... We want to get out to other people that Floral City is not a hick town, its not just a quiet town to pass through, its not a trailer park, its not a bunch of poor people who live here, because thats what you see in these small towns when you drive through. Floral City has character. CHRONICLE: How do you grab peoples attention as theyre driving through? BURNS: You have to make things cute. You have to make things that they want to see, to grab their attention. Once we get them here, its our job as Floral City merchants to say, Hey, have you been to the art gallery? Do you know we have an art gallery in town? Who in the world would think Floral City has a fine arts gallery? Or a tea room? People just dont think it. We help people and businesses in Floral City by treating others like family, not tourists or outsiders. CHRONICLE: How is this U.S. 41 turn-lane project going to affect that? BURNS: I think eventually its going to help Floral City. CHRONICLE: Floral City has historically been really opposed to much change when it comes to roads. U.S. 41, Orange Avenue why is that? BURNS: Its the trees. Its the history. Any major road you have here has these trees that are over 100 years old. They were planted in the 1800s. Thats part of Floral City. Those trees are part of our trademark. ... People love this stuff. Its a passion here. Its an artistic freedom, and charm. Floral City never asks you to be anything other than what you are. CHRONICLE: What do you remember about growing up here? BURNS: I remember it being a town you could walk in the neighborhood. I remember graduating high school in 1989 and we still didnt lock our doors at our house. I remember the charm, the beauty. The drives, the moss. To this day every single time I come around that curve (near Duval Island), I get goose bumps. I feel like Im home. It gets a hold of your soul. CHRONICLE: What has the Withlacoochee Trail done for the whole friendliness and openness of Floral City? BURNS: Tremendous. Its been like a heart line. It connects Inverness, Floral City and Dunnellon. Its a pipeline we can use. Even if theyre from out of town, they stop here. They get off the trail, look at the different places. CHRONICLE: It seems like you definitely have the ingredients, almost handed to you in some ways, of a small town merchant ecocenter. You have the trail, you have the history, the oaks it all plays in your plan, doesnt it? BURNS: Its almost like a diamond in the rough. Its a forgotten treasure. Its something people dont realize is here. ...I live here. I love Floral City. I believe in Floral City and I take it for granted. Im trying to make it so we dont, that we appreciate what we have instead of tearing down and building new stuff. CHRONICLE: Where do you see Floral City in five years? BURNS: Its going to grow, but Im confident its going to grow in positive ways. No matter what happens to Floral City in the next five years good, bad or indifferent Floral City will keep that charm and that laid-back attitude, and everybody here will just go on.

The county does not currently have an ordinance outlining alternative real property disposition standards. The BOCC would have the discretion on a case-by-case basis to determine if property would be sold by bid or another method established by ordinance. Establishing the ordinance would not obligate the county to sell the detention facility or any other real property, but would ensure that adequate procedures and safeguards are in place to guide such a transaction. The board will conduct three public hearings at Tuesdays meeting: At 2 p.m., public comment will be heard as to the use of the uniform method for the levy, collection and enforcement of non-advalorem assessments for Crystal River Wastewater Special Assessment District 114. At 2:15 p.m., public comment will be heard regarding the proposed Citrus Springs Waterline Extensions 2014 Special Assessment District, using the uniform method for the levy against the properties that benefited from the newly constructed water lines throughout the service territory. At 5:01 p.m., public comment will be heard regarding an ordinance modifying the Citrus County five-year capital improvement schedule. In presentations starting at 1:40 p.m., the board will present the Red Cross Lifesaving Award for Professional Responder to Terry A. Smith, who, on Dec.20, 2011, saved the life of a vacationer in a public swimming pool. The board will authorize renaming the Hernando Rail Roadway Park to the Alexander Family Rail Roadway Park in honor of the familys significant contributions to the county. The board will establish the Capt. Tom Davis Field at Crystal River Airport as a lasting tribute to the accomplishments of Davis, who has contributed to Citrus County aviation for the past 35years. County Administrator Brad Thorpe will ask the board to adopt revisions and updates to administrative regulations regarding purchasing policy, requisitioning procedures, purchase orders and public records policy. Thorpe also will ask to set a public workshop about the County Road 491 Corridor Project at 5:01p.m. Jan.14 to cover discussions about the Comprehensive Plan, the project alignment, the map presentation, the current capital improvement plan including cost estimates and funding, the project timeline and the economic benefits.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer Citrus County Sheriffs OfficeBurglaries A vehicle burglary was reported at 6:35a.m. Wednesday, Dec.11, in the 1200 block of Eden Drive, Inverness.

OPINION Page A10MONDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2013 Dismayed by CMH dealI am insulted by the media. Pundits would have me panic over glitches in ACA internet applications, as if I never shopped from a catalog, cant compare benefits and premiums from conventional health insurance offerings and cant fill out a paper application form with a pen. Meanwhile, local pundits report that both sides are responsible for the CMH problems. Tax money is misused by Trustees appointed by our governor to force the Foundation to agree to sell or lease CMH to HCA, in spite of the Foundation having run our hospital in exemplary fashion. The only complainers about the Foundations work show ignorance concerning: (1) triage as used in the emergency room and (2) cost overruns because Trustees refused to allow our tax money to be used the way we citizens voted for it to be used. The governors minions (Trustees) voted to lease CMH to HCA, thus replacing a not-forprofit Foundation with a forprofit corporation. HCA intends to profit by this arrangement. We consumers will not only pay the cost of our care but will also pay for profits to investors and exorbitant compensation for executives. Those familiar with for-profit hospitals know profits are made by shortchanging patient care and employee compensation. Employee morale will suffer and staff turnover will increase. Ask any nurse who has worked in both not-for-profit and for-profit environments. The local pundits would have me believe that both sides are responsible for this disaster. I know better. The pundits at theChronicleshould have made sure that all citizens knew better throughout the squandering of our tax money for legal fees and the move to sell CMH to the hospital chain that gave our governor $300 million in severance pay.John Bassett InvernessDisappearing trustThe Sunday article on the disappearance of trust gave some evidence of why many cannot be trusted. I have noticed by my own observation that the phrase gentlemens agreement is nearly vanished and no substitute phrase is filling the void. My best friend growing up has been a con artist in recent years; he got me for $900, which I dont expect to ever see returned. When I was a child in the 1970s, we had two dogs killed on roads and in both cases the drivers stopped and knocked on the door to apologize. Now it is common that drivers will hit human pedestrians and flee the scene. Should we trust economists and financial gurus? They were fretting about the Y2K computer apocalypse and didnt warn us of the devastating tech stock bubble, and again didnt see the subprime mortgage disaster coming. Since then there has been no shortage of false reports of various bubbles, double-dip recession risks, cliffs, etc., which have scared people out of the gains the stock market has made. And why should we trust a media? Our media are just professional liars on certain issues and have no credibility. Im not any more cynical than the evidence requires.Dean Bales Homosassa SpringsMovember successfulThanksgiving is supposed to be a day of gratitude. So often we get focused on negative things we forget that. As I spent my Thanksgiving day and weekend I thought about how grateful I am to be a small part of Citrus County. As many know, the Agriculture Alliance of Citrus County just completed its third annual Movember Citrus County mens health awareness events with the Mo Show & Finale Party at High Octane Saloon in Homosassa. The funds raised were about $3,900 just at this event. We have also been made aware of a $1,025 donation made by a Farm Credit of Central Florida group as a result of our event educating them on this cause. And there are others who have raised funds. Where else would we find a better community? I think of Theresa Foster, of West Central Solutions, who worked tirelessly on this years event. I think of Dorothy Pernu, of Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center, who managed the first two events and participated largely in this event. How about the Ag community that embraced this event? How about Rocky Hensley and his early support? How about my son Leon and his wife Jessies help? How about Doug and Cassandra Doty of High Octane hosting the finale? How about Brenda Barco who turned in 100 percent of her tips into a donation that night? How about all of the bartenders and servers donating a large percent of their tips? How about Citrus 95/Classic Hits the Fox 96.7? How about the Movember Events Committee? The list goes on. Tell me any other county that you could find all of these good people. But most especially, a newspaper that printed a special edition blue newspaper to support this event. Thank you Citrus County one and all.Dale McClellanAgriculture Alliance of Citrus County JACKNESSNo, Im not talking about ones waistline or the size of ones belt. Im referring to the deadliest battle of WW II which lasted only five weeks. Sixty-nine years ago, on Dec. 16, 1944, Hitler launched three powerful armies in the early morning hours in a surprise attack on the thinlyspread American forces in the Ardennes Forest in northern Luxembourg and eastern Belgium. It was Hitlers last gasp. He was hoping to reach Antwerp on the Atlantic coast, thereby cutting the American Forces in half and inducing them to offer better peace terms than unconditional surrender. The worst winter in 40 years in northern Europe grounded the American air support forcing the Americans back. Though they resisted valiantly, the powerful German armored forces and mechanized ground forces created a bulge in the American lines. In the transportation hub of Bastogne, Belgium the U.S. 101st Airborne Division, though completely surrounded, held out against overwhelming odds. The frustrated German Commander sent an emissary to demand surrender, to which the American Commander famously replied, Nuts! With their supplies running low, the 101st held out until elements of the U.S. 4th Armored Division broke through to relieve them on the day after Christmas. By this time, the American High Command had rushed massive reinforcements to the area, slowing the German offensive and dashing Hitlers hope of reaching Antwerp, yet 100 miles away. Though the Germans fought desperately against the increasingly overpowering American forces, the bulge was eliminated and the original lines restored on Jan. 25, 1945, five weeks from the time the Germans had attacked. The battle had been costly on both sides. Though we do not know exactly how many troops the Germans lost, the Americans suffered more than 80,000 casualties, including more than 19,000 killed and more than 60,000 wounded (including myself), missing or captured. Compare these figures with battle casualties in U.S. wars since then. Many Americans have never heard of the Battle of the Bulge and if they have, have forgotten it. The press does not give adequate attention to this pivotal battle of WW II (Germany surrendered unconditionally four months later in May 1945). But to the few of us who are left and were there, the pain and suffering, the loss or maiming of comrades and the bitter cold and snow are as real today as they were then. Bulge veterans take great comfort in knowing that the good people of Luxembourg and Belgium will be remembering the 69th Anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge (the War of the Ardennes to them) as they do so faithfully every year, celebrating their second liberation from the Germans by the Americans in four years. They have parades and civic ceremonies in many cities and towns of the two countries and shower honors on any veteran of the battle who visits the area. Many have adopted gravesites of Americans and maintain them meticulously throughout the year. I can vouch for this, having visited the area three times. Jack Ness, of Homosassa, was wounded at the Battle of the Bulge. If there isnt a law, there will be.Harold Faber, The New York Times Magazine, March 17, 1968 Anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

Ward recently ascended to the post of the Extension Services 4-H agent, and shes well suited for the job: In addition to holding numerous degrees in environmental fields and having experience as an educator, shes served as a 4-H leader for several years and has called Citrus County home for nearly three decades. She knows the people, she knows the place, and she knows her stuff. Ward is in a position to do a great deal of good chairing a program thats still acutely relevant in a county that sees tens of millions of dollars flow through its agriculture sector annually: In 4-H, students learn not just personal responsibility, but often a little business acumen, and develop an understanding for industry that can serve them well in their adulthood. Crucial to Wards success, however, will be the support she receives. Her partners in the agricultural community have welcomed her warmly, and so do we but cheerful encouragement wont make up for a lack of financial support, and the exodus of Extension Service agents that included Duncans departure occurred amid an atmosphere of extreme fiscal paucity within the agency. Though Extension Service programs are cooperatively funded by contributions from the University of Florida and the county, Duncans salary was previously funded entirely by the county. Duncan left after 11 years as the face of 4-H, and while the program lucked out in finding someone of Wards caliber, it would be a disservice to the youth of this community to lose that kind of experience yet again.

the ground at the family gravesite. Rest in peace. I realized that the old man is no more, no more with us, said Bayanda Nyengule, head of a local museum about Mandela, his voice cracking as he described the burial attended by several hundred mourners after a larger funeral ceremony during which some 4,500 people, including heads of state, royalty and celebrities, paid their last respects. The burial ended a 10day mourning period that began with Mandelas death on Dec. 5 at 95, and included a Johannesburg memorial attended by nearly 100 world leaders and three days during which tens of thousands of South Africans of all races and backgrounds filed past Mandelas casket in the capital, Pretoria. For South Africans, it was also a time for reflection about the racial integration they achieved when Mandela presided over the end of apartheid, and the economic inequality and other challenges that have yet to be overcome and seem certain to test his legacys endurance. The burial site marked a return to Mandelas humble roots, but the funeral trappings were elaborate. South African honor guards from the army, navy and air force, including both black and white officers, marched in formation along a winding dirt road. In contrast to the military pomp, some speakers evoked the traditions of the Xhosa tribe, to which Mandelas Thembu clan belongs. A great tree has fallen, he is now going home to rest with his forefathers, said Chief Ngangomhlaba Matanzima, a representative of Mandelas family who wore an animal skin. We thank them for lending us such an icon. Another speaker, Zolani Mkiva, served for many years as Mandelas praise singer, a traditional role in which he shouted out the leaders attributes to audiences, prefacing Mandelas many stations in life with the words very important: person, prince, patriot, politician, prisoner, philosopher, president, pensioner, patient, papa. The bones of our ancestors are vibrating. The waves of African oceans are reverberating, Mkiva said. In keeping with Xhosa traditions, Mandelas casket was brought to Qunu Saturday draped in a lion skin, an honor bestowed on those of a high rank like Mandela, who is the son of a traditional clan chief. His body lay for the night in his family home before burial, a time when tradition dictates family elders talk to the body to explain to his spirit what is happening. South African television showed Mandelas casket at the family gravesite, but the broadcast was stopped just before the coffin was lowered into the ground at the request of the Mandela family, which often talked of how it had to share its patriarch with the nation and the world. His body was buried around noon, when the sun is at its highest and the shadow at its shortest, said Cyril Ramaphosa, deputy leader of the countrys ruling party, the African National Congress. Associated PressJOHANNESBURG Nelson Mandelas casket was draped in a lion skin, an ox was ritually slaughtered and a family elder kept talking to the bodys spirit: The state funeral for South Africas anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela on Sunday included these rituals from the tradition of the Xhosa tribe, to whom Mandelas Thembu clan belongs. The coffin of the countrys first democratically elected President was wrapped in the South African flag, standing atop animal skins during the funeral in Mandelas southeastern childhood village of Qunu. The ceremony was an eclectic mix of traditional rituals, Christian elements and the military honors of a state funeral. His body was buried around noon, when the sun is at its highest and the shadow at its shortest, Cyril Ramaphosa, deputy leader of the countrys ruling party, the African National Congress, said during the ceremony. Heres a brief look at the Xhosa people and the main elements of their burial traditions: The Xhosa people The majority of the countrys 7 million Xhosa people live in the countrys southeast, in the Eastern Cape province. Their language, Xhosa, is famous for its three click sounds. The Xhosa recognize the presence of ancestral spirits and call upon them for guidance. Veneration for the world of the ancestors, or Umkhapho in Xhosa, plays an important role in their culture. The ceremonial slaughtering of animals is one of the ways the ancestors are called upon for help, according to a website of South Africas Tourism Department. Talking to the body Following a tradition called Thetha, Xhosa culture requires a family elder to stay with Mandelas body and explain to his spirit what is happening. When the body lies there, the spirit is still alive, said Rev. Wesley Mabuza, chairman of South Africas Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the right of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities. The body must be informed of whatever is happening before the funeral, said Nokuzola Mndende, director of the Icamagu Institute for traditional religions. The body must rest for one night in his family house before the burial. On Sunday he must then be told Madiba, we are now burying you, she added, using his clan name in an expression of affection and respect. Wrapped in a lion skin The deceased must be wrapped in a special garment. For people of a high rank like Mandela, who is the son of a traditional clan chief, the body or the casket is usually wrapped in the skin of a leopard or a lion, according to Mndende. Mandelas body was wrapped in a lion skin. But because Madiba is also a former statesman, maybe there will also be the South African flag, she said. Mabuza added: Its a ritual showing deep respect for the deceased. Slaughtering the ox Xhosa tradition requires the slaughtering of an animal early on the day of the burial. After the ritual throat slitting, the animal will be eaten by the mourners, usually outside the family house. For people of a high rank like Mandela an ox will be killed, Mndende said. That ox is slaughtered, cooked and eaten all in one day, she said. In some regions no salt will be used to season the meat, but in the area of Mandelas clan thats up to the familys discretion, she added. End of the mourning A year after the burial, another ox will be slaughtered and eaten by the family to mark the end of the mourning period, in a tradition called Ukuzila. There must be a time when the mourning is broken, Mndende said. Bringing back ritual About another year later a joyous ceremony is celebrated to bring back the deceased into the family so that the person will henceforth be looking over the family and its children as a well-meaning ancestor, a ritual called Ukubuyisa, according to Mndende.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Americans who already have health insurance are blaming President Barack Obamas health care overhaul for their rising premiums and deductibles, and overall 3 in 4 say the rollout of coverage for the uninsured has gone poorly. An Associated Press-GfK poll finds that health care remains politically charged going into next years congressional elections. Keeping the refurbished Health website running smoothly is just one of Obamas challenges, maybe not the biggest. The poll found a striking level of unease about the law among people who have health insurance and arent looking for any more government help. Those are the 85 percent of Americans who the White House says dont have to be worried about the presidents historic push to expand coverage for the uninsured. In the survey, nearly half of those with job-based or other private coverage say their policies will be changing next year mostly for the worse. Nearly 4 in 5 (77 percent) blame the changes on the Affordable Care Act, even though the trend toward leaner coverage predates the laws passage. Sixty-nine percent say their premiums will be going up, while 59 percent say annual deductibles or copayments are increasing. Only 21 percent of those with private coverage said their plan is expanding to cover more types of medical care, though coverage of preventive care at no charge to the patient has been required by the law for the past couple of years. Fourteen percent said coverage for spouses is being restricted or eliminated, and 11 percent said their plan is being discontinued. Rightly or wrongly, people with private insurance looking at next year are really worried about what is going to happen, said Robert Blendon, a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health, who tracks public opinion on health care issues. The website is not the whole story. Employers trying to control their health insurance bills have been shifting costs to workers for years, but now those changes are blamed increasingly on Obamacare instead of the economy or insurance companies. Political leanings seemed to affect perceptions of eroding coverage, with larger majorities of Republicans and independents saying their coverage will be affected. The White House had hoped that the Oct. 1 launch of open enrollment season for the uninsured would become a teaching moment, a showcase of the presidents philosophy that government can help smooth out the rough edges of life in the modern economy for working people. Instead, the dysfunctional website became a parable for Republicans and others skeptical of government. At the same time, a cresting wave of cancellation notices hit millions who buy their policy directly from an insurer.

Many trains dont use auto brakesNEW YORK After a speeding Metro-North Railroad commuter train barreled into a curve and derailed in New York City on Dec. 1, safety advocates said similar deadly accidents might soon be avoided. Railroads across the country are preparing to deploy high-tech control systems that will let computers automatically slow trains that are moving too fast or headed for a collision. Yet there is already lowtech equipment, widely available since the Great Depression, that could have prevented the crash, and every Metro-North train already has it. For many years, the trains have been outfitted with control systems that will sound an alarm if an engineer exceeds a designated speed or blows through a red light, then robotically slam on the brakes if the driver doesnt respond. Historically, though, the system has been used on Metro-North mainly to keep trains from colliding, not to enforce speed limits on curves, hills or bridges.Mystery man gives Tips For Jesus NEW YORK The $111.05 New York restaurant receipt includes a $1,000 tip and the words god bless! scrawled across it. The handle @tipsforjesus is stamped next to an illegible signature. In recent weeks, similar tabs have popped up in restaurants from coast to coast and even in Mexico, with tips of as much as $10,000 all charged to American Express. On Sunday just after midnight, the mysterious man surfaced again this time in Fairfield, Conn. He left a $5,000 gratuity on a $112 bill at the Seagrape, an eatery where college kids drop by for cheap beers by the beach. Tips for Jesus an Instagram account filled with photos documenting the tips has more than 54,000 followers.

Suspect nabbed in scam probeKINGSTON, Jamaica Jamaican authorities have arrested a man suspected of involvement in the islands lottery scam. Police said the suspect from St. Elizabeth parish in the countrys south is being investigated following a raid at his residence. Officers searching his home allegedly found lead sheets, or lists with names, addresses, phone numbers and Social Security numbers of U.S. citizens. A laptop and three cell phones were also seized. The scam often begins with a phone call that informs the targets that they have won an international lottery, but they first need to wire money to cover taxes. Victims who fall for the trick then get harassed for more money.Israel reports soldier killedJERUSALEM An Israeli soldier was killed by a Lebanese army sniper late Sunday as he drove along the border, the Israeli military said, drawing Israeli threats of retaliation. The shooting near Rosh Hanikra raised the possibility of renewed fighting in the volatile area, which has remained mostly quiet since a month-long war in the summer of 2006. Hezbollah, the guerrilla group that waged the war seven years ago, did not appear to be involved in Sundays incident. Lebanons National News Agency confirmed the shooting by member of the Lebanese army. It was not clear why the soldiers opened fire. Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli army spokesman, said Israel had protested this outrageous breach of Israel's sovereignty with U.N. peacekeeping forces and heightened its state of preparedness.

African militias seek overthrow Associated PressBANGUI, Central African Republic The Christian militiamen fighting to oust Central African Republics Muslim president from power hide in the hills far on the edge of the capital. Out of the forest of banana trees, about two dozen young men slowly emerge to meet their visitors armed with clubs, machetes and hunting rifles. These 20and 30somethings dont look much different from the young men who sell air time for mobile phones in town, apart from their weapons and the spiritual protection they wear. On top of their soccer jerseys and T-shirts, they sport long rope necklaces with leather pieces and charms known as gri-gri that they say will save them from the bullets and machetes of their enemy. As ragtag as they may appear, they pose the greatest threat to the Muslim ex-rebels now ruling the country since they seized power in the majority Christian country nearly nine months ago. And in interviews with The Associated Press, both the militiamen and a former officer in the national army before the March 2013 coup confirmed they are working together to topple rebel leaderturned-President Michel Djotodia. We are revolting so that Djotodia and his fighters leave, and the country can live in peace, said Richard Bejouane, 27, who used to harvest manioc root and peanuts before taking up arms against the rebels known as Seleka earlier this year. Though the militia movements hierarchy is unclear and there are divisions in its leadership, the collaboration is evidence that the opposition movement to Djotodia and his fighters is growing, and could set the stage for a protracted sectarian conflict even as 1,600 French troops on the ground in Bangui try to secure the peace. French forces are supposed to be disarming Muslim and Christian fighters, though the Christian militia hideouts in the bush have made them harder to find.

Kuchar and English finished at 34-under 182, playing their last 28 holes at Tiburon in 25 under. They opened with a 64 on Friday in modified alternateshot play and had a 60 on Saturday in better ball. The duo beat Retief Goosen and Fredrik Jacobsen by seven strokes, matching the tournament record for margin of victory set by Curtis Strange and Mark OMeara in 1989 in the inaugural event. It was a fun week, Kuchar said. This is one of my favorite events of the year. I wish we could have more team events. I realize during the year, thats difficult but to mix up the formats and have a partner here is just a lot of fun. Its nice to perform well. Kuchar and English, who replaced the injured Brandt Snedeker in the field, each earned $385,000. Its such a relaxing event, Harris said. Its really cool being part of this event. Goosen and Jacobsen closed with a 61, but had little chance to catch the winners. It was unbelievable, quite an exhibition, Jacobson said. Both guys were putting well and theyre solid ball-strikers, so we knew we had to pick up the pace. But they played so well, theres not much you can do about it. Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter had a 59 to finish third at 26 under, and Chris DiMarco and Billy Horschel were fourth at 24 under after a 60.Sergio Garcia wins Thailand ChampionshipCHONBURI, Thailand Sergio Garcia shot a final-round 68 to beat Henrik Stenson by four strokes and win the Thailand Golf Championship at the Amata Spring Country Club.

The victory is Garcias first in a year with his last win coming at the Johor Open, an Asian Tour event in Malaysia last December. Swedens Stenson, who recently made history when he became the first player to win the Race to Dubai and the FedEx Cup, matched Garcias 68 in his final round for an 18-under 270 total.

The 49ers scored three times in the final 4:31 to pull away for a 33-14 victory. 49ers break open close game late in fourth quarter for 33-14 victory over Buccaneers Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa Bay Buccaneers game plan was to be in position to win it in the fourth quarter. After giving themselves a chance, the Bucs saw the opportunity disappear when Colin Kaepernick put together a lengthy drive that helped the San Francisco 49ers win 33-14 Sunday. Vernon Davis caught a touchdown pass for the fifth straight game and Michael Crabtree scored his first TD since returning from injury for the defending NFC champions. The victory was the fourth straight for Kaepernick and San Francisco (10-4), who pulled away for good with a 10minute, fourth-quarter drive that produced a field goal. Kendall Hunter put it well out of reach, scooping up a fumble on the ensuing kickoff and diving 2 yards into the end zone for a touchdown. They played keepaway, which is what you worry about with that offensive football team, Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano said. The opportunity is there. All week we talked about making it a fourth-quarter game, heavyweight fight, get to the fourth quarter and find a way to win. Thats why its very disappointing to players and coaches alike is that we felt like we had the opportunity and let it go. Tampa Bay pulled within 20-14 on Mike Glennons TD pass to Tim Wright on the first play of the fourth quarter. The Bucs (4-10) didnt get the ball back until Kaepernick used 17 plays to move the 49ers 77 yards into position for Phil Dawson to kick one of his four field goals, extending his franchise-record streak of consecutive successful attempts to 24. You want to take time off the clock when you can, especially in that situation, Kaepernick said, Our offensive line did an amazing job, and our receivers and backs made plays. Kaepernick completed 19 of 29 passes for 203 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

Tyler Murphy, who started six games and may have gotten a shot at the job in 2014, announced Sunday hes leaving to play his senior year elsewhere. Murphy joins freshman Max Staver as quarterbacks who have left the program after Florida coach Will Muschamp fired offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis. In all, seven offensive players have left Florida over the past two weeks. The list also includes tight end Kent Taylor, fullback Rhaheim Ledbetter and offensive linemen Quinteze Williams, Trevon Young and Ian Silberman. Murphy and Silberman graduated Saturday and will transfer under the NCAA rule that allows graduate students to play immediately and not have to sit out a year. The departures leave the Gators with just two scholarship quarterbacks: injured starter Jeff Driskel and freshman Skyler Mornhinweg. Highly touted recruit Will Grier is expected to enroll in January. Murphy completed 60.5 percent of his passes for 1,216 yards, with six touchdowns and five interceptions. He also was sacked 22 times. He missed the final three games with a sprained throwing shoulder, an injury his sister accused the school of covering up. Binghamton Tyler Murphy, who started six games at quarterback for Florida this fall, announced Sunday he is transferring to play somewhere else as a senior.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE quarterback threw TD passes of 4 yards to Crabtree and 52 yards to Davis, who finished with five receptions for 79 yards. Frank Gore rushed for 86 yards to go over 1,000 in a season for the seventh time in his career. Glennon was 18 of 34 for 179 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. But the Bucs only managed 39 yards rushing and were limited to a seasonlow 183 total net yards. Vincent Jackson scored on an 11-yard reception to trim a 17-0 deficit to 10 points just before halftime. Glennons 24-yard pass to Wright finished a 10-play, 92-yard drive that gave Tampa Bay hopes of pulling an upset. But the Niners would have none of it. Kaepernick kept San Franciscos long fourth-quarter march going with a 12-yard pass to Crabtree on third-and12, then scrambled for 10 yards on third-and-6 for a first down at the Bucs 19. The drive eventually stalled at the 3, where the 49ers settled for Dawsons 21-yard field goal. Give them some credit, Glennon said. That was a great job by them in the fourth quarter. Eric Page fielded the ensuing kickoff, started up one side before heading across the field where he attempted to hand the ball to Russell Shepard on a reverse. Shepard lost the ball as he slipped to the ground, and Hunter made a nice to play to scoop it up on the run and score for a 30-14 lead. It was a called play that we were going to run a reverse if the opportunity presented itself the right way. It didnt, and yet we still ran it, Schiano said. OK, we made a mistake. Guys make mistakes. Im not going to get into specifics about it. Sometimes you make mistakes. Crabtrees return from a torn right Achilles tendon that sidelined him the first 11 games of the season has given San Franciscos offense, last in the league passing yardage, a lift. The speedy receiver averaged 18 yards per reception in his first two games back and had five catches for 45 yards, including his first quarter TD on Sunday. Kaepernick set up the first score of the game with a couple of nifty thirddown conversions, scrambling for 17 yards on third-and-8 from the Tampa Bay 33 on one and throwing 5 yards to Bruce Miller on third-and-3 on the other. Crabtree scored two plays later. We had opportunties without a doubt to stop them, and we didnt do it, Schiano said. Thats what it boils down to. basketball player Morgan Murphy expressed displeasure with the timing of her brothers benching in midNovember. She posted on her Twitter page: Wish they wouldve done this weeks ago when they realize the severity instead of trying to cover it up & act like he was fine. She later deleted the tweet. Mornhinweg started the final three games. Muschamp insisted the job would be an open competition in 2014, but many believe it will be Driskels job to lose. Muschamp has made it clear that he is tweaking the offense hes adding hurry-up aspects and might use more spread concepts to better fit Driskels skill set. Of course, those changes also would seemingly fit Murphy. The school did not make Muschamp available for comment or release a statement, an indication that the coach wasnt on board with Murphys choice. Florida lost its final seven games, missing a bowl game for the first time since 1990 and finishing below .500 for the first time since a 0-10-1 campaign more than three decades ago. Quarterback problems were the biggest culprit this season. The Gators threw just four touchdowns over the final seven games. Murphy played well in his first three games, throwing five TD passes against just one interception in wins against Tennessee, Kentucky and Arkansas. Those, though, were three of the worst defenses in the Southeastern Conference. Murphy injured his shoulder in a 16-7 loss to LSU on Oct. 12 and really struggled afterward.

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston won the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, last years winner, finished fifth in the voting and seemed to enjoy a relaxing trip to Manhattan, playing the role of supporting actor to Winstons leading man. Manziel was the first freshman to win the Heisman, and it helped turn him into one of the biggest celebrities in sports. Not all the attention he got after winning the award was good. Winston is now the second freshman to win the Heisman. He has a chance to lead the top-ranked Seminoles to a national championship next month against No. 2 Auburn, though the entire story of his season has included an unsettling chapter. In many ways, Manziel has been where Winston is headed. Lifes going to change, Manziel said. This is an extremely big deal. Manziel basked in the spotlight after winning the Heisman and decided to live loud and large. His road trips made headlines. His tweets were analyzed. He got tossed from a frat party and overslept a meeting at the Manning Passing Academy. Real potential trouble came when the NCAA looked into whether he signed autographs for money. He got off with a half-game suspension. Theres a lot of scrutiny if you dont walk a fine line, he said. I was a little bit uncharacteristic, a little bit out of the box, and I caught some flak for it. Figured it out a little bit as the year went on and continued to live my life and learn as I went along. It was tough, but I had to do it. Manziels missteps seem quaint considering the allegations that Winston was facing. Last month, a year-old sexual assault complaint against him became public, and the Tallahassee Police gave the dormant case to the state attorneys office for a full investigation. A female Florida State student claimed Winston raped her. Winstons lawyer said the sex was consensual. The state attorney determined there was not enough evidence to charge Winston, announcing that decision four days before Heisman votes were due. Winston says he felt vindicated, but also acknowledged needing to grow up some. Manziel said he was impressed with the way Winston handled his business on the field while dealing with problems away from it. I had to go through controversy and I had to go through some things, Manziel said. To see him at such a young age, to put his head down and to focus on his teammates and where they are and where theyre headed ... I do give him a lot of credit for that with all the scrutiny hes under. I feel like hes done a tremendous job of focusing on his team and on his family and what matters most. Manziel, a third-year junior, can declare for the NFL draft after this season. What could be his last game will be New Years Eve against Duke in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. In his Heisman followup season, Manziels passing stats improved as he stayed in the pocket more often. Both his completion percentage (69.1) and yards per attempts (9.5) went up. If he does go pro and itd be an upset if he didnt hell again be the center of attention as one of the most scrutinized players in the draft. The college game will belong to Winston, and Manziel said he should embrace his newfound fame. Live it up. Enjoy it, Manziel said. Continue to be yourself and dont let anybody change from that. Youre going to have to adapt to how life is going to be after this. Stay focused. Stay true to yourself and continue to be the person that you are. Manziel passes the torch to Winston Jameis Winston Johnny Manziel

Miami claims key win Dolphins foil comeback bid, beat Pats 24-20 Associated PressMIAMI GARDENS Tom Bradys latest comeback bid fell short, and the Miami Dolphins helped their playoff chances with a breakthrough victory over AFC East leader New England. A fourth-down pass from Brady was intercepted by Dolphins newcomer Michael Thomas in the end zone with 2 seconds left, giving them a 24-20 victory Sunday. The Patriots had mounted secondhalf rallies to win their past three games, and Brady moved them from their own 20 with 1:15 remaining to the Miami 14. But he threw three consecutive incompletions before Thomas, playing his first NFL game, sealed the third consecutive victory for the Dolphins (8-6), who are 5-2 since tackle Jonathan Martin left the team in a bullying scandal. Miami snapped a streak of seven consecutive losses to the Patriots (10-4), who missed a chance to clinch their fifth consecutive AFC East title. Working against the Dolphins injury-depleted secondary, Brady threw 13 times in the Patriots final drive, including a fourth-and-8 completion in New England territory. But the Patriots used their final timeout with 27 seconds left, and after two passes into the end zone fell incomplete, Bradys throw for Austin Collie was intercepted by Thomas. The reserve safety joined the Dolphins on Tuesday when he was signed off the San Francisco 49ers practice squad, and he was pressed into duty because of injuries. Ryan Tannehill shook off four sacks to throw for 312 yards and three touchdown passes, including a 14-yarder to Marcus Thigpen with 1:15 left that provided the winning margin. His other scoring passes covered 39 yards to Mike Wallace and 2 yards to Daniel Thomas. Brady went 34 for 55 for 364 yards and two scores, overcoming the loss last week of tight end Rob Gronkowski to a season-ending knee injury. Julian Edelman made 13 catches for 139 yards, and Danny Amendola added 10 receptions for 131 yards. New England took a 20-17 lead when Edelman scored on a 24-yard reception with four minutes left. The Dolphins caught a break when the ensuing kickoff went out of bounds, allowing them to start at their 40. Charles Clay kept the driving going when he turned a short pass into a 6-yard gain on fourth and 5 at midfield, and Thigpen scored five plays later.Seahawks 23, Giants 0EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Marshawn Lynch scored on a twisting 2-yard run, Seattle picked off five Eli Manning passes and manhandled the New York Giants 23-0. The Seahawks (12-2) have won six times on the road, a franchise best. Theyre closing in on the NFC West title and their best overall record; they went 13-3 in 2005 before losing to Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl. This seasons Super Bowl will be played at MetLife Stadium and unless they collapse in their final two games at home, where they are undefeated, the Seahawks will be the NFC favorite to reach the first outdoor Super Bowl in a cold weather city. New York (5-9) will be deep into its offseason by then with its first losing record since 2004. It was Seattles first shutout since a 58-0 romp over Arizona on Dec. 9 last year.Bills 27, Jaguars 20JACKSONVILLE EJ Manuel threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, leading the Buffalo Bills to a 27-20 victory against the banged-up Jacksonville Jaguars. Manuel bounced back from the worst game of his rookie season a four-interception performance at Tampa Bay last week and left the Sunshine State with his first win in five road starts. The former Florida State star didnt do anything spectacular, just dinking and dunking the Jaguars for 193 yards. He also ran for 37 yards, including an 8-yard touchdown in the second quarter. The Bills (5-9) scored 10 points in the final 2:14 of the first half for a 20-10 lead. The Jaguars (4-10) rallied to tie the game in the fourth on Chad Hennes 13-yard TD pass to Marcedes Lewis. Manuel answered, though, capping an 89-yard drive with a 1-yard TD pass to Frank Summers.Vikings 48, Eagles 30MINNEAPOLIS Matt Cassel passed for 382 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score to lead the injury-depleted Vikings to a 48-30 victory over Philadelphia, snapping the Eagles five-game winning streak. With Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart out, Matt Asiata rushed for the first three touchdowns of his career and Greg Jennings caught a career-high 11 passes for 163 yards for the Vikings (4-9-1). Asiata ran for 51 yards on 30 carries. Nick Foles threw for 428 yards with three touchdowns and one interception and DeSean Jackson had 10 catches for 195 yards and a score for the Eagles (8-6). They started the day with a one-game lead over Dallas in the NFC East.Colts 25, Texans 3INDIANAPOLIS Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes, and Robert Mathis broke the Colts singleseason and career sacks records by forcing a second-half safety to lead Indianapolis past reeling Houston 25-3. It was just what the AFC South champs needed as a playoff tuneup. Luck finished 19 of 32 for 180 yards with one interception and needed only two quarters to put up 20 points, four short of the Colts combined first-half point total from the previous six games. But the Colts (9-5) did it against a team that has lost 12 straight overall and is 0-12 all-time in Indy. For Houston (2-12), it looked all too familiar. Indy took a 20-3 halftime lead, aided by two interceptions by Case Keenum and too many penalties. Keenum also was stripped of the ball by Mathis in the end zone, which led to the safety. Keenum was 18 of 34 for 168 yards.Falcons 27, Redskins 26ATLANTA Desmond Trufant deflected Kirk Cousins pass on a potential winning 2-point conversion with 18 seconds remaining, and the Atlanta Falcons edged the Washington Redskins 27-26. The Falcons scored 20 points off seven Washington turnovers. The Redskins tied a team record with five lost fumbles. Cousins passed for 381 yards and three touchdowns but had three turnovers in his first start of the season after coach Mike Shanahan decided to bench Robert Griffin III. Griffin watched from the sideline. Cousins touchdown pass to Santana Moss gave Washington a chance to force overtime by kicking the extra point. Instead, Cousins attempted goahead 2-point pass for Pierre Garcon was deflected by Trufant. Steven Jackson ran for two touchdowns for Atlanta. Alfred Morris had 98 yards rushing but lost two fumbles for Washington.

Associated PressOAKLAND, Calif. Jamaal Charles tied a franchise record with five touchdowns in a game, Alex Smith threw five TD passes and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Raiders 56-31 on Sunday to clinch at least a wildcard spot. The Chiefs (11-3) became the fourth team ever to make the playoffs a year after losing at least 14 games. Kansas City is tied for first place in the AFC West with Denver, but needs help to win the division because the Broncos swept the season series. Charles gained 215 yards from scrimmage as the Chiefs put up the highest point total allowed in Raiders history. Matt McGloin threw four interceptions and lost a fumble while sharing time with Terrelle Pryor. Oakland (4-10) lost its fourth straight game.Packers 37, Cowboys 36ARLINGTON, Texas Matt Flynn threw four touchdown passes in the second half, Eddie Lacy had the winning score on a 1-yard plunge and the Green Bay Packers matched the biggest comeback in franchise history, rallying from 23 points down at halftime to beat the Dallas Cowboys 37-36. Tony Romo had two interceptions in the final 3 minutes, the first one giving Green Bay a chance for the go-ahead score with the Cowboys in position to run out the clock with a 36-31 lead. Lacy scored with just over 1 1/2 minutes left. Playing on the same field where they won the 2011 Super Bowl, the Packers matched the 1982 team, which rallied past the Los Angeles Rams after trailing by 23. The Packers (7-6-1) kept their playoff hopes alive with Aaron Rodgers possibly returning next week. The Cowboys (7-7) stayed a game behind Philadelphia in the NFC East.Bears 38, Browns 31CLEVELAND Jay Cutler shook off some early rustiness and threw three touchdown passes in his first start since Nov. 10, leading the Chicago Bears to a 38-31 win over the Cleveland Browns. Cutler, who missed Chicagos previous four games with a sprained left ankle, threw a 4-yard TD pass to Earl Bennett with 5:41 left as Bears (8-6) rallied in the second half and stayed in contention for an NFC playoff spot. Cutler finished 22 of 31 for 265 yards and validated firstyear coach Marc Trestmans decision to stick with him over backup Josh McCown, who had played well while filling in for Chicagos starter. The Browns (4-10) scored two defensive touchdowns, but as has been the case in recent weeks, Cleveland couldnt get the big stop when it needed one. The Browns have lost five straight, eight of nine and dropped at least 10 games in six straight seasons.Panthers 30, Jets 20CHARLOTTE, N.C. Cam Newton threw for 273 yards and a touchdown, Captain Munnerlyn had two sacks and returned an interception for a score and the Carolina Panthers defeated the New York Jets 30-20. Newton was an efficient 16 of 24 passing, including a 72-yard touchdown pass to DeAngelo Williams as the Panthers bounced back from their worst loss of the season, a 31-13 defeat last Sunday to the New Orleans Saints. Williams had 81 yards rushing and 87 yards receiving for the Panthers (10-4), wholl get another crack at the Saints next Sunday in a game that could determine the NFC South division title and wholl get a first-round bye in the NFC playoffs. Geno Smith had a touchdown pass and one costly interception in the fourth quarter for the fading Jets (6-8). Rookie defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson ran for a TD on a goal-line play.Cardinals 37, Titans 34, OTNASHVILLE, Tenn. Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Arizona Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. Still, the Cardinals (9-5) won their sixth in seven games. With San Francisco and Carolina winning, they remain a game back of both for a NFC wild-card berth. The Titans scored 17 points in the final 3:12 of regulation to force overtime. They won the toss and drove to the Cardinals 43 before Antoine Cason intercepted his second pass of the game. Tennessee (5-9) lost its third straight and eighth in 10 games. The Titans also lost their fifth consecutive home game for the first time since moving to Tennessee in 1997. The Cardinals scored 21 straight points in the second half, the last when Cason returned his first interception for a TD and a 34-17 lead.Rams 27, Saints 16ST. LOUIS Drew Brees threw interceptions that led to touchdowns on the first two possessions and the St. Louis Rams got big days from Zac Stacy, Robert Quinn and on special teams to top the New Orleans Saints 27-16. Quinn had two sacks, giving him an NFC-leading 15, and his quarterback hit on the Saints first snap of the game altered the flight of the ball on T.J. McDonalds interception. The Saints (10-4) missed their first chance to clinch a playoff berth, trailing 24-3 at the half, but made it look respectable with two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. They play at Carolina with the NFC South lead on the line next week. Kellen Clemens threw for two TDs for the Rams (6-8), who recovered an onside kick to set up a field goal in the first quarter, and Michael Brockers blocked a field goal at the end of the half.NATIONALFOOTBALLLEAGUECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, DECEMBER16, 2013 B5 The Dunes Golf Club Play Where the Pros Play UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT 18200 Seville Clubhouse Drive, Weeki Wachee, FL 34614 Call us! 352-596-7888 CALL FOR DETAILS Leagues Golf Outings Early Bird Memberships Leagues Available Now Leagues Available Now Looking Looking For Players For Players Men, Women, Men, Women, & Couples & Couples 000GXAW League Plays $ 29 00 Weekday Regular $ 30 00 Associated PressChicago wide receiver Brandon Marshall is tackled by Cleveland inside linebacker Craig Robertson after a catch Sunday in the first quarter in Cleveland.

B6MONDAY, DECEMBER16, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Phyllis Diller said, We spend the first 12 months of our childrens lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next 12 telling them to sit down and shut up. At the bridge table, some players are scared of 12 the number of tricks needed for a small slam. Others zoom that high whenever there is the faintest aroma of slam in the air. But the ideal is between those two extremes. This week, lets study some of the factors for accurate slam bidding. First, when two balanced hands face each other, combined point-count is a surprisingly reliable indicator. Some years ago, I ran a computer analysis. I gave the partnerships hands no five-card suit and no 4-4 fit. I found that when the total point-count was 33, six notrump was a favorite; but when it was only 32, that slam was an underdog. Here is an easy example for the bidding, but not so simple in the play. How can South make six no-trump after West leads the club 10? Souths two-no-trump rebid shows a balanced hand with 18, 19 or a poor 20 points. It is in principle forcing to game and does not deny four spades. South cannot risk a nonforcing one-spade rebid with that strong a hand. South has 11 top tricks: three spades, four hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. The clubs might split 3-3, but that is unlikely both mathematically and given the opening lead. However, the contract is assured if declarer takes trick one, unblocks dummys diamond aceking, returns to his hand with, say, a spade, and leads the diamond jack to drive out the queen. The diamond 10 is trick 12.

My father isnt particularly religious, but my mother is a strict Catholic, and my older sister and brother have been confirmed. I have another six months before I am expected to go through the process of confirmation. I do not want to do this. But as the time approaches, my mother has become increasingly forceful on the subject. I do not share my mothers beliefs, although I do believe in God. My father supports my choice, and Ive tried to explain it to my mother, but she wont have any of it. She continues to send me to religious classes, which I consider a complete waste of my time, and it results in some very awkward conversations because I find myself hiding my beliefs. When I once refused to attend the classes, my mother threatened to call my school and have me taken off of student council and the soccer team. I know her stubbornness has other causes, including pleasing family members who are deeply religious and have always resented my fathers agnosticism. But time is running out, and Mom has only become more aggressive. If I resist, there will be huge consequences. I dont feel I can take part in such an important religious event if I am not fully committed to it. I even talked to Mom about postponing it for a few years, which would be allowed in our diocese, but she rejected that idea. How can I convince her that she is being unreasonable? Frustrated Son Dear Frustrated: You cant. Your mother is in panic mode, frightened for your religious future and concerned that her family will disapprove of the way she raised you. Your best bet is to talk to your priest and ask him to intervene. While he is unlikely to support your decision not to be confirmed, he may be able to convince Mom that waiting is in everyones best interest, and she is more apt to listen to him. Dear Annie: I am a senior citizen with an issue regarding children who use the restroom without being educated or properly trained in etiquette. I have seen kids standing three feet from the toilet (because they are too short to use the urinal) and spraying the seat. This is not a competition to see how far away you can be and still hit the target. Some parents are concerned about germs and tell their kids not to touch the seat, so you can imagine the messes I have witnessed when using a public restroom. Also, please teach the child to flush after himself. I realize this is a particularly difficult issue for single mothers who cant go into the mens room with their sons. Please address this. T.S. Dear T.S.: We appreciate your concern, and we hope parents are paying attention. However, were fairly certain that most parents already teach their sons how to use the toilet, because they dont want to clean up a mess at home, either. Public restrooms pose difficulties because opposite-sex parents cannot supervise, and the kids can become either anxious or reckless. But not all accidents are caused by young children. Adults do their share, too. Dear Annie: Your response to Concerned Cutter in N.Y. to post a sign in his barbershop saying that cellphone use is prohibited while in the chair is good. I have a better one. Theres an old saying that time is money. It certainly takes more time to cut hair if the patron is chatting on a cellphone. How about posting a sign that says: Haircuts: $30; Haircuts While Using Cellphone: $50 The next time a customer chats, instead of being annoyed, the barber can say, I just made another $20. I doubt he would lose customers if he is lighthearted about it. Benicia, Calif.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
