MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Citrus Memorial hospital officials worked well into the night Monday narrowing the details of an agreement with Hospital Corporation of America. Members of the Citrus County Hospital Board and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation board spent two hours discussing three of 30 points that will comprise a letter of intent with HCA. The first point brought the most attention. Both groups were adamant that HCA commit to keeping a functional hospital in Citrus County for the length of the 50-year lease. HCA has committed only to keeping the hospital in Inverness for 15 years. CCHB transaction consultant Trey Crabb and attorney Ashby Burks said HCA would not go longer than that. I think that will be their best offer, Crabb said. HCA, in answering the request for proposals in June, said it would keep Citrus Memorial in Inverness if the hospital were sold. Unlike the legal issues that divide the two boards, members were generally unified in holding HCA to a full-lease commitment in Citrus County. Its unsettling to think 15 years when we asked for the term of the lease, foundation chairwoman Sandy Chadwick said. Foundation member Bob Collins and CCHB trustee Dr. Mark Fallows, however, said HCA should be given the leeway to make business decisions it deems fit. They want this market now. Theyll want this market 15 to 20 years from now, Fallows said. HCA is offering $140 million up front for a 50-year lease. The company also has pledged about $45 million in capital improvements the first five years. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleAt 26, Scott Chmura is embarking on a dream military career as a drummer in the Army. The former drummer for Mighty Mongo said drumming has been his passion ever since he picked up a set of drumsticks at age 7 and kept a steady beat accompanying his dad on guitar. In 2005, he and some high school friends started the band Carnival Arrest, with their eyes on making it big as musicians. By 2007 he had moved to Los Angeles to study music at the Musicians Institute. While there he played with Katy Perry, The Offspring and even Stevie Wonder and John Mayer at a House Full of Toys benefit concert at the Nokia Theater. He had gone to find a career as a drummer, but reality smacked him in the face and he realized stardom, or even steady work as a musician, was rare in a saturated industry. However, while there he met an Army band guy who told him about careers in the Army for talented musicians. Chmura filed that info away, returned to Florida and started a new band, Mighty Mongo. He also taught drumming, worked as a substitute teacher, worked with his dad at his plumbing business and went to school. As a band, Mighty Mongo had a degree of success, including a gig with the Warped Tour for two summers and playing regularly in clubs around Florida. But it wasnt what Chmura wanted for the rest of his life, and recently he said goodbye to Mighty Mongo. Now 26, Chmura has a new drumming gig a career in the Army. He leaves for basic training Dec. 29. When I was in Los Angeles, the Army guy told me and my roommate Drummer starts new year with new career as a military musician Scott Chmura keeps his drumsticks in a Go Army backpack. Hes wanted to join the military for about five years and recently auditioned and was accepted as a drummer. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Plans for an aquarium at the mall are on the fast track and the ideas originator, Art Jones, is planning an open house/community brainstorming session as early as next month. After that, Jones hopes to begin work on the first phase of the project and have it open to the public sometime in February or March. The open house will be a before look at the space and to hear from the community some design ideas, Jones said. I want the community to be involved in this and we will be looking for volunteers to help us in any way they can, he said. Jones wants to use the soonto-be-vacant Belk store at the Crystal River Mall to launch an aquarium that would showcase and teach residents and tourists about marine life in Kings Bay and the Nature Coast, with its rivers and inland lakes. Everything is interconnected, and the more educational opportunities people have, the more they will learn and a lot of pollution can be stopped at its source, he said. Belk will be vacating the 62,000-square-foot space Jan. 1. Jones wants to marry his efforts cleaning up noxious algae called Lyngbya with the aquarium venture a nonprofit/ business partnership model. He expects 10 percent of ticket sales from the venture to go his One Rake at a Time project, which with its army of volunteers has been removing dark-colored Lyngbya from the Project would turn mall space into an aquarium Real estate prices level off NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Ten years ago, Scott Chmura was a 16-yearold kid with wild, bleached-blond hair playing drums with Citrus High Schools BREEZ and also the schools swing band. Foreclosures still a problemPATFAHERTY Staff writerCitrus County is averaging about 115 foreclosures a month. That pace is behind 2012, but has picked up in the fourth quarter. Despite those numbers and a lingering inventory of foreclosed homes, local real estate prices are hitting a realistic level. Current figures from the Citrus County Clerk of Court and Comptrollers Office show 1,269 notices of pending foreclosures filed from Jan. 1 through Dec. 16. The county was averaging about 95 foreclosures filed monthly through August. There were 1,562 foreclosures filed in 2012, an average of about 130 a month. The latest figures show the county closely following the state trend in foreclosure decline from last year. According to figures from RealtyTrac, reported by Florida Realtors, the number was down 23 percent from 2012. The countys top year for foreclosures was 2009, with 2,001 cases filed. The high numbers have given the county what Landmark Realty owner Linda Bega once described as a lingering foreclosure inventory. And Citrus County currently has a court backlog of 592 foreclosures, which could eventually join the existing housing inventory. According to Zillow, an online real estate marketplace and information service, Citrus County has about 660 homes, which have been repossessed by banks or other lenders, that have not yet hit the market. The service also list 560 homes in the county that are either in default or scheduled for auction. It shows 93 foreclosed homes currently on the active market. Zillow spokeswoman Jill Simmons said their numbers come from various county government agencies, court actions and default notices. Our purpose is to provide consumers with real estate information, she said.

For Phase 1 of his aquarium effort, Jones envisions starting out with several tanks and an exhibition area where people can learn about the effects of pollution and the various measures being undertaken to combat it. Jones said a research center at the aquarium also would provide good jobs for college graduates. He said an animal or fish hospital is also in the plans to rescue and rehabilitate endangered species and other animals. Working field trips would be offered to ecotour groups of people who want to work physically to help improve and restore the springs of Kings Bay, Jones added. Events are being planned to help raise money to build the aquarium at the new Crystal River band shell (at Kings Bay Park). Music and talent shows at the band shell in the spring on Sunday afternoons to help raise money for the One Rake at a Time project are on the drawing board now, he said.

Inventory is way down from where we were in the thick of the crises, said Realtor John Maisel. Currently its way down. He said banks are holding tighter on prices, rather than the discounting evident in previous years. He is also seeing multiple offers on some listings and opportunities for first-time buyers. In Citrus we have a vast range of property types, he said, describing the inventory. And higher priced home are selling. For where we are in the economy, he said, prices are realistic.

HOMESContinued from Page A1 Dems, GOP test pitches for state House race Associated PressCLEARWATER Once a solidly Republican bastion of Northern snowbirds and conservative retirees, this stretch of coastal beach towns and sprawling subdivisions has moved toward the political middle. Voters in this suburban St. Petersburg district backed former President George W. Bush in 2004 before narrowly supporting Barack Obama twice. Now, the death of longtime Rep. Bill Young has made Floridas 13th District the proving ground for political arguments that both Republicans and Democrats hope will resonate with moderate voters in next years midterm elections. Democrats hope to use the special election to fill Youngs seat to hammer Republicans about the government shutdown that far-right demands helped trigger. Republicans plan to blister Democrats about the disastrous rollout of Obamas health care law. The political stakes are high, giving both parties an opportunity to test messages ahead of next years midterm elections and win the right to claim momentum. Democrats want to hang onto control of the Senate and retake the House, critical steps for a Democratic president hoping to notch second-term legislative victories. Republicans, in turn, seek absolute power across Capitol Hill in hopes of stymieing Obamas final years. In a sign of the contests national importance, Democrats cleared the field for Alex Sink, Floridas former chief financial officer and the partys gubernatorial nominee in 2010. Republicans, meanwhile, are embroiled in a costly three-way primary that has split the GOP establishment and divided Youngs family. Republican David Jolly, a longtime aide to the congressman, claims Youngs death-bed endorsement, as well as the backing of his widow, Beverly. State Rep. Kathleen Peters highlights the support of Bill Young II, the late lawmakers son. Mark Bircher, a retired brigadier general in the Marine Corps Reserve, also is running. Young was first elected to Congress in 1970, representing a district whose lines were redrawn several times. He withstood changing political currents over four decades to become the longest serving Republican in the House. And he did it by cultivating a reputation as a bipartisan conciliator who used the appropriations process to land hundreds of millions of dollars in federal earmarks for the district and the state. He announced his retirement shortly before his death, seeming disillusioned by Washingtons partisan brinkmanship. It seems theres too much politics, he told the Tampa Bay Times. The candidates jockeying to succeed him are billing themselves as heirs to Youngs brand of pragmatic governing as they sound their partys national themes. Its time to fix whats broken in Washington, Jolly says in a TV ad, describing the federal health care law as a mess of broken promises. Jolly and Peters are tying Sink to the Obamacare debacle and calling for major changes to the law. Republicans see it as a potent line of criticism in a district where nearly a quarter of residents are over 64. Republicans also are distancing themselves from the government shutdown that tarnished their partys image. Jolly said he would not have sided with House Republicans earlier this year who demanded changes in the health care law in exchange for essential federal funding, though he blamed Obama for the resulting shutdown. Republicans should realize that we dont have a majority of the federal government, he said. I believe its the job of a member of Congress to fight as hard as you can, but at the end of the day, if you dont have the votes, you dont have the votes. Peters demurred on the defunding bill, but criticized Congress for not funding the government. We should have had a solution long before we hit the deadline, she said. Im focused on stopping the gridlock. We need to move forward. Our people cant wait any longer. The centrist talk is a reflection of the changing district. The younger, more racially diverse population of St. Petersburg has helped make the region swingvoting territory. Last month, the city elected a Democrat as mayor for the first time since 1975. While they largely agree on the issues, the Republicans are drawing distinctions through their professional backgrounds in the run-up to the Jan. 14 primary. Peters, a former city commissioner and mayor elected to the statehouse last year, has criticized Jolly for his work as a Washington lobbyist. Jolly, who runs a consulting firm, said his Washington experience makes him the only candidate ready to serve without a learning curve. Meanwhile, at campaign stops in senior centers and farmers markets across the district, Sink focuses on the shutdown. Once the sole Democrat in a GOP-dominated cabinet, she is billing herself as a bipartisan problem-solver who can break the Capitol gridlock. Washington is broken, she told supporters at the opening of her Clearwater campaign headquarters recently. Yes, Im a Democrat, but I also know how to work with Republicans and Democrats to figure out how to move our country forward. In a nod to the late congressmans popularity, Sink told her supporters that she wants to build on the legacy of Bill Young by working on veterans issues. Sink rarely mentions the federal health care law, instead focusing on the economy and the coastal districts ballooning flood insurance rates. In an interview, she criticized the White House for its handling of the website rollout and said she would support GOP-sponsored legislation to permit the sale of individual health coverage that falls short of requirements in the law. Im going to Congress to hold the administration accountable for rolling out a plan that works, that achieves the ultimate goal, which is access to affordable health insurance, she said.

SIDIBE Staff writerA circuitous chase, both in vehicle and on foot last Friday, led to the arrest of an Inverness man on a raft of charges. A Taser had to be used to finally subdue Nicklaus Roland Krauch, 22, of East Kent Street, according to a Citrus County Sheriffs Office report. Krauch is facing seven counts including possession of a controlled substance (Methamphetamines), resisting an officer without violence, leaving the scene of a crash and fleeing and eluding law enforcement. His bond is $11,900. About 5:30 p.m., Deputy Jeffrey Hunter responded to the scene of a crash on north Independence Avenue when he was told one of the vehicles involved in the wreck had left the scene. Hunter and other dep uties were on the lookout for a dark-colored sports car. According to the report, Hunter took a back road and headed westbound on Forest Drive. There he spotted a small dark-colored vehicle that failed to stop at a stop sign. Hunter also noticed the vehicle had damage to its front consistent with witnesses descriptions. Hunter reportedly activated his siren and followed the vehicle down Forest Drive, through a business parking lot and via a lawn to turn on Jerome Street. According to the report, the driver made repeated gestures and attempts at bailing from the vehicle until he finally did at the wood line near Norma Avenue. Krauch reportedly exited the vehicle and began running on foot, with Hunter giving chase, first with his vehicle and then on foot. Krauch reportedly went into the woods and came out in the area of Bulldog Lane and Clarise Terrace. After repeatedly commanding Krauch to stop without success, Hunter reportedly used his Taser, striking Krauch in the back. The Taser reportedly slowed down Krauch and caused him to stop running. He was again commanded to get down on the ground several times, but chose to stay standing with his arms raised, according to the report. Hunter used his Taser again, and this time Krauch fell to the ground, where he was arrested and then transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. During a search of Krauch, investigators found a small plastic bag containing a crystalline white substance that later tested positive for meth. Hunter also found a digital scale in Krauchs side pocket.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or email@example.com. Saloon donates bounty of bicycles MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleHigh Octane Saloon owner Doug Doty carries one of 214 bicycles to a shed at the Citrus United Basket (CUB) headquarters in Inverness on Monday afternoon. For the past several months, Doty and his wife, Cassandra, have been collecting bicycles and monetary donations from customers and local businesses. In turn, the couple has matched the donations, enabling the acquisition of 214 bikes. I remember my first bike, Doty said Monday. It meant more to me than my first new Harley Davidson motorcycle. Its important that we do this for the kids. He added the riding group Rolling Nomads donated more than 200 helmets for the children. CUB executive director Jenna Campbell said her charity will assist hundreds of families this holiday season and the bikes will bring smiles to many. She estimates in the neighborhood of one-third to half of the families with children that CUB assists will get a bike this year. She said a drawing will be conducted to select those who will receive a bike. We want to thank everyone involved in this, Campbell said. This is the second year High Octane has made a donation like this, and this is greatly appreciated by CUB and our families. What they do for us takes a tremendous effort.

Nicklaus Krauchfacing multiple charges. Lyngbya cleanup project granted $100K Special to the ChronicleThe One Rake at a Time project has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the Department of Environmental Protection to assist in the Kings Bay Lyngbya cleanup initiative, according to Art Jones, project founder and director. The money is part of the general appropriations act of 2013-14, providing grant assistance through Beaches and Mines Funding. State Sen. Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, invited Jones to present the One Rake at a Time project to his Senate committee in Tallahassee earlier this year, and that was instrumental in getting the support of the Florida Senate to approve the grant, Jones said. Crystal River Mayor Jim Farley also appeared at the hearing to support the project along with other One Rake volunteers. State Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, R-Inverness, supported the appropriations in the Florida House and Gov. Rick Scott approved the budget item. The money is now flowing through the city of Crystal River and is being used to further the removal of Lyngbya from Kings Bay. Jones said the work will continue to aid in the Cedar Cove restoration project that was started with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Admin istration grant this summer. Work hand-raking Lyngbya will continue until June30, 2014, or until the money is exhausted, according to the terms of the grant. The funding has proven effective in the Kings Bay cleanup and restoration, and another appropriation is hoped for in the next Florida legislative cycle, Jones said. Dean helped to lead the effort in the Legislature and continues to be a great leader in the efforts to restore and protect the springs of Florida, Jones said, adding that the Southwest Florida Water Management District is also to be credited with stepping up to the plate and working to improve water quality. Dr. Chris Anastasiou, of the water district, and Jones did a snorkel survey to see where eel grass beds have the best chance of survival. They identified good beneficial growth areas where the Lyngbya was removed this spring. Large areas along the shorelines had selfseeded and covered in vegetation that provides fish habitat. Metal cages are being designed to protect the eel grass beds from being overgrazed by the manatees. Planting will begin in spring of 2014 and be monitored and maintained to study the increases in fish habitat, water clarity and quality. The One Rake at a Time project will help remove the Lyngbya where the eel grass beds are going to be planted. A living wall shoreline work project is also planned in the Hunter Springs Run.

News of the tentative deal drew groans from Sin Citys powerful hotel and restaurant workers union and others who benefit from the 10-day event, which takes place in the citys tourism slow season. Tourism officials vowed to launch a competing rodeo. We are disappointed that the PRCA has chosen to pursue a completely speculative offer versus Las Vegas proven 29-year track record, Michael Mack, spokesman for Las Vegas Events, said in a statement. The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association board voted 6-3 Sunday to turn down Sin Citys offer in favor of an agreement with Floridas Osceola County, south of Orlando. Osceola County commissioners voted 5-0 Sunday to accept a memorandum of understanding that allows 90 days to close the deal. The plan calls for the 2015 event to be held at the nearby Amway Center, home of the Orlando Magic; county officials vowed to have a new, 24,000-seat arena ready for the event by the fall of 2016. The deal also would include $16 million annually for the rodeo associations prize money and administrative costs, as well as revenue sharing.

LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER17, 2013 A5 For theRECORD about playing music in the Army and how they were looking for people who could play rock music, country, swing, jazz everything, he said. First, he had to audition. I did a phone interview and sent in recordings and all the tours that I did, he said. Next, an Army band liaison came to Tampa to hear Chmura perform. By the second or third song, she said, We need you. They have a lot of marching-band drummers in the Army, ceremonial and marching is still king but they need set musicians that can play all kinds of music, he said. A lot of the higher-ups are baby boomers who like rock music, and the troops now days want to hear new music, because for them, its a taste of home. After basic training and 10 weeks of studying music in Norfolk, Va., Chmura will be assigned to one of 31 Army bases as a drummer, playing in the local community, at schools, for base functions, any number of events. He may also be deployed to play for troops overseas. When I auditioned, they offered me to start as an E-4 specialist, plus pay for school while Im in, he said. Im about three semesters away from graduating. Currently, Chmura is majoring in political science with a minor in music. I think a lot of people dont realize that if you have something to offer the military, theyll put an offer on the table for you, said Steve Chmura, Scotts father. I think this is a great opportunity for Scott, and hes making a good choice. Ive been a musician all my life, and you see guys in their 40s all the time thinking they can make it big with just the right song, but the competition is so severe, which he learned first hand out in L.A. Scott Chmura said hes both excited and nervous. Hes been exercising, trying to get into shape so the 18and 19-year-old recruits wont show him up too badly once he starts basic training. Otherwise, hes ecstatic to have found a career in drumming, which has been his passion ever since he picked up a set of drumsticks at age 7 and kept a steady beat accompanying his dad on guitar. Plus, his wife, Lauren, is in the process of enlisting, too. She hopes to find a career in linguistics or biology. Chmura said shes the brains in the family; hes the artist. As for leaving, he said his heart is definitely in Inverness and its hard to leave. But this is such a great opportunity that I have to try, and Ill be back to visit, he said. This is a new chapter, and Im looking forward to it.

Price died Monday at his Texas home, having long outlasted most of his country music contemporaries and the prognosis doctors gave him when they discovered his pancreatic cancer in 2011. He was 87. The way the Country Music Hall of Fame member fought cancer was an apt metaphor for the way he lived his life, always fiercely charting a path few others might have the fortitude to follow. Along the way he changed the sound of country music, collaborated with and inspired the genres biggest stars and remained relevant for more than half a century. Ray Price was a giant in Texas and country western music. Besides one of the greatest voices that ever sang a note, Rays career spanned over 65 years in a business where 25 years would be amazing, said Ray Benson of the country music group Asleep at the Wheel. Price, one of country musics most popular and influential singers and bandleaders, had more than 100 hits and was one of the last living connections to Hank Williams. Price died Monday afternoon at his ranch outside Mount Pleasant, Texas, said Billy Mack Jr., who was acting as a family spokesman. Billie Perryman, the wife of family friend and spokesman Tom Perryman, a DJ with KKUS-FM in Tyler, also confirmed his death. Prices cancer had recently spread to his liver, intestines and lungs, according East Texas Medical Center in Tyler. He stopped aggressive treatments and left the hospital last Thursday to receive hospice care at home. At the time, his wife, Janie Price, relayed what she called her husbands final message to his fans: I love my fans and have devoted my life to reaching out to them. I appreciate their support all these years, and I hope I havent let them down. I am at peace. I love Jesus. Im going to be just fine. Dont worry about me. Ill see you again one day. Perhaps best known for his version of the Kris Kristofferson song For the Good Times, a pop hit in 1970, the velvet-voiced Price was a giant among traditional country performers in the 1950s, s and s, as likely to defy a trend as he was to defend one. He helped invent the genres honky-tonk sound early in his career, then took it in a more polished direction. He reached the Billboard Hot 100 eight times from 1958-73 and had seven No. 1 hits and more than 100 titles on the Billboard country chart from 1952 to 1989. For the Good Times was his biggest crossover hit, reaching No. 11 on the Billboard pop music singles chart. His other country hits included Crazy Arms, Release Me, The Same Old Me, Heartaches by the Number, City Lights and Too Young to Die. Price was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1996, long after he had become dissatisfied with Nashville and returned to his home state of Texas. His importance went well beyond hit singles. He was among the pioneers who popularized electric instruments and drums in country music. Romance writer Janet Dailey dies Associated PressBRANSON, Mo. Romance writer Janet Dailey, whose books have sold more than 325 million copies worldwide, has died at her southwest Missouri home. She was 69. Snapp-Bearden Funeral Home in Branson said Dailey died Saturday in the music resort town. A coroner had not released the cause of death as of Monday, and the funeral home reported that the family said only that Dailey died peacefully. Born and raised in Iowa, Dailey moved to Branson in 1978 with her husband, Bill Dailey, who was credited with helping build the town into an entertainment mecca. Daileys novels included the popular Calder series and her Americana series 50 books, one set in each state. Her website lists 155 works, including single novels and short story collections as well as the two series. A perennial fixture on best-seller lists, Dailey saw her books translated into 19 languages. Her latest, Merry Christmas, Cowboy, ranked 13th on Publishers Weeklys adult mass market best-seller list in early October. Daileys career hit a rough spot in 1997 when she was sued for copyright infringement by another best-selling author, Nora Roberts. Dailey admitted that two of her novels 1991s Aspen Gold and 1996s Notorious contained ideas and passages borrowed from Roberts works. Dailey apologized in 1997, saying the plagiarism occurred when her husband was undergoing cancer surgery and she was under immense stress. The lawsuit was settled out of court in 1998 for an undisclosed sum. Bill Dailey had been treated for pancreatic cancer and died in 2005 at the age of 76. Funeral services are scheduled at 10 a.m. Thursday in Williams Memorial Chapel on the campus of College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Mo. Associated PressCountry Music Hall of Fame member and Grammy Award winner Ray Price celebrates his 86th birthday on Jan. 7, 2011, by performing in Bullard Texas. Price died Monday.
A8TUESDAY, DECEMBER17, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE STATE/LOCAL 000GQM6 000GXPK Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL Spacewalk or space delivery? Thats the question facing NASA as space station flight controllers try to revive a crippled cooling loop. Half of the International Space Stations cooling system shut down last Wednesday because of a bad valve that made the line too cold. NASA is using a different valve to try to control the temperature, with some success, Kenny Todd, a space station manager said Monday. Whether or not it will be enough ... we cant tell yet, said Todd. The two American astronauts on board, Rick Mastracchio and Michael Hopkins, may need to make spacewalking repairs, beginning Thursday. Thats the same day an unmanned rocket is supposed to hoist a space station cargo ship from Wallops Island, Va. Spokesman Josh Byerly said NASA expects to decide Tuesday which should take priority repairs or restocking. Orbital Sciences Corp.s Cygnus cargo ship already has been delayed a couple days because of the cooling problem in orbit. The space station cooling system, which runs ammonia through the lines, is critical for dispelling heat generated by onboard equipment. Nonessential equipment was turned off following the breakdown, and some science experiments were put on hold to keep the heat load down. NASA estimates two or three spacewalks would be needed to replace the pump that holds the bad valve. If deemed necessary, the spacewalks would occur on Thursday, Saturday and, possibly, next Monday. The two U.S. astronauts checked their suits Monday, just in case, and even tried them on. The pump replacement would be put off until early next year, Todd said, if engineers determine that the flawed cooling line can limp along until then. Six men are aboard the orbiting outpost: two Americans, three Russians and one Japanese. NASA has said from the start that the station is not in danger and the astronauts are comfortable. NASA debates space station repairs Asssociated PressNASA astronaut Sunita Williams, bottom, photographed with a fisheye lens, works on the International Space Station, Sept. 5, 2012, during the mission's third session of extravehicular activity. On Wednesday, Dec. 11, one of two identical cooling loops shut down when the line got too cold because of a faulty valve. The system uses ammonia to dissipate heat from onboard equipment. Mission Control ordered the six-man crew to turn off some science experiments and other non-critical equipment; the powerdown continued Thursday, Dec. 12. Crabb said he believed HCA would agree to a full-lease commitment in Citrus County only in exchange for a drop in the final price. They dont want to be locked into a financial black hole, he said. Collins said board members should back off on that demand. Are we going to nitpick this down and sacrifice the price? Collins said. Board members also agreed with HCAs position that it commit to offering obstetric services for 15 years, or seven years even if there is a significant drop in births or Medicaid or insurance reimbursements. On another issue, however, they disagreed with HCAs position. HCA, which had guaranteed all employees one year on the job after taking over the hospital, changed that position to guarantee jobs only to clinical workers. For non-clinical workers, it said it would offer jobs at HCA facilities within a 50-mile radius of Inverness. Citrus Memorial board members said HCA should stick with its original offer. The letter of intent is the first formal step toward a final contract. Once signed by the foundation, hospital board and HCA, a period of due diligence follows that would lead to a definitive agreement and, finally, a contract. Officials hope to have that contract in place by summer 2014. For more on Monday nights meeting, see Wednesdays Chronicleor go to www.chronicle online.com. CMHContinued from Page A1 Cops say man lied about abandoned baby Associated PressDEBARY A man who said he found an abandoned newborn girl wrapped in newspapers outside a central Florida convenience store was arrested Monday and charged with lying to investigators. Ralph Garlick Jr., 53, originally told investigators he had found the baby after hearing her cry, Volusia County Sheriffs deputies said. He flagged down a newspaper deliveryman, who then called 911. Garlick identified himself to authorities using his dead brothers name, but under further questioning, he admitted the baby belonged to his girlfriend, although he isnt the father, officials said. Garlick said his 34-year-old girlfriend didnt want the newborn girl and that he was trying to find a safe place for the baby, authorities said. Garlick also told investigators that the girl was born early Monday morning in an apartment complex in Orange City. Volusia County Sheriffs Office spokesman Gary Davidson said the false name was the first indication that the story might not be accurate. But investigators also found it odd that, based on his story, he would have had to pass a sheriffs office substation, yet he didnt stop there to alert authorities to the so-called abandoned baby. That would have been a safe location he could have gone to, Davidson said. The baby was taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children in Orlando, where doctors said she appeared to be in good condition, according to the Volusia County Sheriffs Office. Once the baby is medically cleared, she will be turned over to the Florida Department of Children and Families.
Possible China deal could pep up iPhone salesBEIJING Apple Inc. might have a chance to pep up cooling iPhone sales in China if it finally can reach a deal with the worlds biggest phone carrier. Once Chinas must-have gadget, the iPhone has seen its explosive popularity squeezed as the market filled with lower-priced rivals from Samsung to ambitious local brands. Some analysts say anybody who wants an iPhone and can afford it already has one. That might change if Apple can gain access to China Mobile Ltd.s network and a new pool of potential customers. After a yearslong courtship, there are signs the two corporate giants might finally be edging toward a deal. The Wall Street Journal said it could be announced as early as this week, though China Mobile spokespeople have said the companies were still talking.AP-GfK poll: Americans see end of stock surgeNEW YORK Americans arent expecting another bang-up year for the stock market, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Of the people polled, 40 percent think the market will stabilize where it is now by the end of 2014, with 39 percent predicting that it will drop, but not crash. Only 14 percent believe the market will rise and 5 percent think it will crash. The Standard & Poors 500 index has surged 24.5 percent to 1,775 in 2013, putting it on track for its best year in a decade. The rally has been fueled by higher corporate earnings, a slow but steady recovery in the U.S. economy and stimulus from the Federal Reserve.US factory output rises 0.6 percent in NovemberWASHINGTON U.S. factories increased output in November for the fourth straight month, led by a surge in auto production. The gains show manufacturing is strengthening and could help boost economic growth at the end of the year. Factory production rose 0.6 percent in November after a 0.5 percent gain in October, the Federal Reserve said Monday. Production of motor vehicles and parts increased 3.4 percent, rebounding from a 1.3 percent decline in October. Factories also stepped up production of home electronics and chemical products. Industrial production, which includes manufacturing, mining and utilities, rose 1.1 percent in November. It was the fourth straight gain.US worker output rises at best pace in 4 yearsWASHINGTON U.S. workers boosted their productivity from July through September at the fastest pace since the end of 2009, adding to signs of stronger economic growth. The Labor Department said Monday that productivity increased at a 3 percent annual rate in the third quarter. Thats up from an initial estimate of 1.9 percent and much stronger than the 1.8 percent rate from April through June. Productivity rose because economic growth was much stronger than previously estimated in the third quarter. Productivity is the amount of output per hour of work. Higher productivity enables companies to pay employees more without sparking inflation.Foreign holdings of US Treasury debt up in OctoberWASHINGTON Foreign buyers of U.S. Treasury securities increased their holdings for a third month in October, despite budget battles in Washington that shut down the government for 16 days that month. The Treasury Department says total foreign holdings edged up 0.01 percent in October to $5.65 trillion after a 1 percent gain in September. Holdings had fallen from April through July, likely reflecting concerns about rising interest rates. In October, holdings were 1.2 percent below the record high of $5.72 trillion reached in March. Associated PressStocks raced higher after two down weeks, as investors warmed up to the idea that the economy is getting better. Stocks have fallen lately after good economic news as investors worried that the Federal Reserve would think its stimulus was no longer needed. But Mondays gains, driven by two corporate deals and a strong report on manufacturing, suggested that investors are focused more on growth and less on the central banks actions. For a while, investors felt, Oh my goodness, we wont be able to survive without Fed support. But people are actually seeing that things really are getting better, said Brad McMillan, chief investment officer for Commonwealth Financial. The Fed meets for two days beginning Tuesday, and officials could signal when the Fed will dial back the stimulus that has helped boost the stock market this year. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 129 points, or 0.8 percent, to close at 15,884.57, after rising almost 175 points in the morning. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 11 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,786.54. The Nasdaq composite was higher by 28 points, or 0.7 percent, at 4,029.52. The gains ended what had been a four-day losing streak for the S&P 500 index, beginning the week on the upbeat note after two down weeks. Two major deals caught investors attention: Chipmaker Avago Technologies is buying LSI Corp. for $6.6 billion. Avago rose $4.45, or 10 percent, to $50.10, while LSI rose $3.05, or 39 percent, to $10.96. AIG is selling its aircraft leasing business for about $5.4 billion to Dutch leasing company AerCap. AIG has been selling major assets after getting a bailout during the financial crisis. Its shares rose 55 cents, or 1 percent, to $50.28. The Avago-LSI deal helped make tech stocks the biggest gainers among the 10 industries in the S&P 500. Others winners included computer hard drive makers Western Digital and Seagate, which benefited from analyst upgrades. Of those 10 industries, only consumer staples fell. Also Monday, the Federal Reserve said factory production accelerated in November as auto production surged. The gains in manufacturing could help boost economic growth. Just last week, such positive reports made investors nervous. They feared the Fed would think the economy was doing so well that its $85 billion in monthly bondbuying was no longer needed. The Fed will release a statement and projections for the economy Wednesday. Economists are almost unanimous in believing the Fed will not begin winding down its stimulus program yet. This years stock rally has been fueled by that stimulus, higher corporate earnings, and a slow but steady recovery in the U.S. economy. All of the big indexes are up more than 20 percent. Karyn Cavanaugh, market strategist with ING U.S. Investment Management, said she doesnt expect such large returns next year maybe more like 10 percent. But thats actually good for investor confidence, she said. When they see these big huge numbers, I think they look at it with kind of a jaded eye and think, Is that really sustainable? Maybe its already run its course so I want to get out. Energy stocks rose, led by Tesoro, which runs refineries and gas stations. It was up $2.07, or 4 percent, at $58.37. Exxon Mobil rose $1.91, or 2 percent, to $97.22 after being upgraded by Goldman Sachs.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER17, 2013 A9 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: 1,786.54 Change: 11.22 (0.6%) 10 DAYS 14,400 14,800 15,200 15,600 16,000 16,400 JD JASON 15,680 15,880 16,080 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 15,884.57 Change: 129.21 (0.8%) 10 DAYSAdvanced2077 Declined1028 New Highs114 New Lows80 Vol. (in mil.)3,102 Pvs. Volume2,986 1,819 1,570 1744 812 115 33 NYSE NASD DOW 15930.3115759.6015884.57+129.21+0.82%+21.22% DOW Trans.7160.877090.527151.16+64.73+0.91%+34.76% DOW Util.483.93478.62481.07+3.26+0.68%+6.18% NYSE Comp.10050.729997.2010024.97+70.10+0.70%+18.73% NASDAQ4043.004019.144029.52+28.54+0.71%+33.45% S&P5001792.221777.481786.54+11.22+0.63%+25.27% S&P4001301.111292.221299.66+10.24+0.79%+27.36% Wilshire 500019068.0218925.6819014.84+121.63+0.64%+26.81% Russell 20001120.171107.061119.85+12.73+1.16%+31.85% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, DECEMBER 17, 2013 Medical marijuanaDear Ms. Bondi, I realize your speaking time will be limited, but I would appreciate you covering the reason you are against medical marijuana coming to Florida. Im a 75-year-old with a noncurable cancer called multiple myeloma. Ive been in four guinea-pig treatments over the past 5 1/2 years at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. My clinical trials department has 450 patients, of which 80 percent are receiving an addictive chill-out drug like Valium, Xanax, Ativan, Prozac, etc. Over 50 percent of that same group are also receiving addictive pain meds like Oxycodone, Vicodin, etc. I have been around these patients, nurses and doctors enough to know that Big Pharma is not always the answer. I have never taken even one of these addictive drugs and yet I have 195 chemo doses in me now, which have 32 side effects on top of the side effects of the disease itself. I came out publicly in a local front-page story about using illegal marijuana successfully and am a very vocal volunteer of the petition to allow its use through an amendment change. The Legislature has had bills in both the House and Senate for the past three years that the committee chairmen never even brought up for discussion. Ive talked with enough lobbyists and political party leaders to get a clearer picture on how the system works on occasion, this being one of them. It doesnt matter which political party put you in office the pharmaceutical and alcohol companies are dictating to them both right now. Any volunteer within a political party will be fired if they publicly support medical marijuana, so they say. Doctors and treatment centers are being pressured, especially if they are doing trials. Ive given talks around town enough to know the audiences recognize marijuana as a getaway or exit, not a gateway drug. Right now, 20 states, with 14 more to follow, have proved that. All they want for their debilitating medical problems is a legal, non-addictive option that works. Anyone can score marijuana, so youre not stopping an expanded use. Those who understand marijuana consider all use to be medical, never recreational. I plan to be in your audience, along with patients with fourth-stage pancreatic cancer and ALS disease, and a veteran who cant use VA facilities in Florida because he successfully used marijuana in another legal state. Your career, funded by the Republican Party, might be over, but please consider how good it would feel to man up to those who are all about the money. Theres no reason for 450,000 Alzheimers patients to suffer through a sundown syndrome each day, or for you to block the thousands of others suffering from a debilitating medical problem. Who knows, you might even come out a big hero. If you dont believe my personal story on its merits, I suggest you watch: Dr. Sanjay Guptas documentary Weed; Inside Man; Marijuana and the History Channels Marijuana, a Chronic History. The world is changing for the better and marijuana is becoming a part of that. There are more than 225 million satisfied users who serve as proof today. Thank you for your time in reading my position, but consider that it is the same and right one as the majority of Florida voters.Haydon Fouke Citrus County The Pope loves everyone, rich and poor alike. Its safe to say that the above is not the most quoted line from the popes most recent and most talked about essay, Evangelii Gaudium, which includes some pointed criticism of late capitalism. If we dont love the poor, and do all we can to improve their lot, were going to go to Hell, Philadelphias Archbishop Chaput said in a 2011 interview. In an e-book, New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan repeated the line, seeing it as a point of continuity between Pope Benedict XVI and his successor. According to most church observers, Chaputs one of the most conservative bishops in the country. Generally that means he talks about The Gospel of Life, and the necessity of following Catholic teaching in all facets of our lives, including politics. He also offers pastoral guidance on the death penalty and immigration and, yes, poverty. Meanwhile, the leftist talking heads at MSNBC have fallen all over themselves to proclaim Francis as one of their own. And Fox News has even joined the fray, comparing the pope to Obama in an op-ed posted on the channels website. All this begs the question: Who is Pope Francis? Are our efforts to neatly label him doing both the man and his message a disservice? Resist the temptation, cautions Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the retired archbishop of Washington, to fit (Pope Francis) into ideological and ecclesial categories. The cardinal, probably considered leftward of some of the earlier bishops named, was speaking at the start of a recent event at Georgetown University, The Pope and the Poor. The forum, presented as a dialogue sponsored by the new Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life, was held in the shadow of The Gospel of Joy, a long papal intrachurch document that echoed many themes weve heard in the early papacy of Pope Francis. Its about loving attentiveness, and talks of our obligations to life and marriage and even religious freedom. But you wouldnt know that from the headlines, which are all about Obamacare, lawsuits and partisan jockeying. This evasion of the popes true message is a reminder of how important communication is and how challenging it can be in the age of Twitter and our limited attention spans. But the effort to get beyond all that is one we need to make. Francis is reminding us of our Christian obligation to physically perform works of mercy. To take care of the poor, to visit the imprisoned, to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to welcome the stranger, to tend to the sick, Dolan reflects. This is what pastors do, and what every parishioner should do, as well. Theres a book by a bevy of Dominican priests, one now an archbishop in the upper realms of the Vatican. Its called The Love That Never Ends, and it contends that to share in the unending love of the triune God is the destiny of every human person in Christ. This is the popes message. Its not a political agenda its an evangelical one. If you have actual hope that there is endless mercy and justice for those who seek it, that there is a redeeming love available for all, that your neighbor truly is your brother theres got to be a joy about you, one youre going to want to share in service, fellowship and charity. Thats not condemning you to hell for having strong opinions about the priorities of the federal budget, but reminding us all of the meaning of words and lives. And if you believe it that the human person is a beloved treasure of the Creator it is the perfect gift to bring joy to the world.Kathryn Jean Lopez is editorat-large of National Review Online, director of Catholic Voices USA and a consultant with the Magnificat Foundation.

Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ....................................publisherMike Arnold ..............................................editorCharlie Brennan ........................managing editorCurt Ebitz ..................................citizen memberMac Harris ................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ..........................guest memberBrad Bautista ....................................copy chief GIVE LOCALLY Be careful with charitable donations A recent statement from Nature Coast EMS stating that charitable solicitations for EMTs and paramedics do not directly benefit local personnel is a reminder that during this holiday season, people can expect to receive solicitations to contribute to a variety of organizations with names that suggest benefits to cancer victims, children, police, firefighters, veterans and other worthy groups. While some of these are legitimate charities, others are little more than outright scams, where the supposed beneficiaries receive only a fraction of the money collected. The rest goes to professional fundraising organizations and/or officials of the sponsoring organizations. In a series earlier this year, the Tampa Bay Timesreported that the nations 50 worst charities contributed less than 4 cents of each dollar collected in direct aid to those for whom the funds were ostensibly being raised. Of these 50 worst, 11 promised some type of cancer support, 10 mentioned children in their name, nine had as beneficiaries some type of law enforcement officer and others claimed veterans and firefighters as beneficiaries. The message is that the name of the charity may not tell you whether it is a legitimate charity that provides real benefits to those for whom the money is being raised. When receiving a solicitation call, ask if the caller is a paid fundraiser or works for a company that is paid to raise funds. If it is a paid fundraiser, keep in mind that cold-calling donors is one of the most expensive ways to raise money, with paid fundraisers often getting 80 to 90 percent of the money raised. If you are still inclined to give, dont immediately hand over your credit card number or write a check. Before you make your contribution, get the full name, address and website of the charity and do some research on the web. A few quick inquiries will reveal if the charity is legitimate or if it is simply mimicking the name of a well-known and legitimate charity. If you determine the organization is legitimate and you want to support it, give directly to the organization. Never give your credit card number to a telephone solicitor. Better yet, keep your donations local by giving to charities that provide support to local residents. Money raised by these organizations is much more likely to directly benefit local residents rather than going into the hands and bank accounts of professional and often out of state fundraisers.

Food for thoughtIm calling about the thing in the paper today about Backyard chickens. My daughter has seven chickens. You think that shes going to make a big profit out of them if she sold some eggs to her friends? Shed be lucky if she can pay for the food. She happens to be handicapped also and she enjoys the chickens. Shes had them from chicks. But what big profit is she going to make? ... If theyre so worried about people making such a big profit off of the chickens in the back yard, they should limit the amount of chickens they can have. Limit it to 10 chickens. That should settle it.Scratch-offs for the needyI just want to say thank you to the Grinch who stole the scratch-off cards from the pocket of my purse on Saturday (Dec. 7) at a yard sale just off of Croft down by the vegetable stand. You didnt rob me, an elderly lady, but you did rob some folks in a nursing home because I make up little stockings and things for folks in a nursing home and scratch-offs were for the ones who need sundries that they can buy with money they get if they get money from them. So I hope you won big and have a really nice holiday. You must surely need it to steal from a senior lady.Perfect, almostI just wanted to say how beautiful Fridays Night of Lights in Crystal River was. My grandchildren and children had a wonderful time and the only bad thing was that there were too many mosquitoes and we got all bit up. Right now its Sunday and were still trying to take histamines so that we can get over all the itching. But other than that, it was a wonderful, wonderful experience. Thank you so much.Great paradeI just wanted to mention that Beverly Hills did another wonderful job on the Christmas parade. The county commissioners had a nice float.Recycle this?Im at the Citronelle recycling Dumpster. Can you please tell me what a mattress and a lounge chair has to do with recycling? Come on, people. Get your stuff and bring it to the dump yourself.Smokers, get lost!Do smokers know just how abrasive they really are to be around? The pleasant smell of clean air totally just disappears when they enter the room. They smell awful, like an ashtray. I went to the flea market Saturday to do my Christmas shopping and it was so smoky, I had to leave. I felt sick and dizzy after a few minutes. I wound up not being able to buy anything. Citrus is plagued by these addicts. Some of us really do care about our health. What do we do? Pass an ordinance for no smoking in public places? That would work, maybe slow it down some. We need to do something. GOP traditionThe party of Lincoln has its roots in a very tumultuous time in our history. Preserving the Union, The Emancipation Proclamation, and 13th Amendment ending slavery were the defining moments in Republican Party history. We believe in fiscal conservatism and responsibility. We believe in less government regulation and intrusion in the lives of we the citizens of these United States. We also believe in helping those less fortunate, so that they too can have the opportunity of success. And we believe in protecting our environment. We believe in a strong defense, and taking care of those who willingly serve their country and far too often make great sacrifices in doing so. We believe that the use of military force should be limited to protect American lives, sovereignty and values. As chairman of the Citrus County Republican Executive Committee, I believe there is room for all conservative voices in our tent. Further, we need to work together to elect leaders who not only subscribe to Republican values, but know the difference between politicking to get elected, and doing the job of governing. No political party is perfect, and both parties have gone through trials and tribulations that may leave many of their members wondering. What is important is that as Republicans, we remember our values and accomplishments in the past 150 years, while working together to grow this country to make it a better place for our children and grandchildren. It is important that every citizen vote. Your voice can make a difference. Do your homework and select a candidate you are confident will represent you. I am confident that most will find that candidate is a Republican. If you would like to find out more about your local Republican party, the Republican Executive Committee meets at 7 p.m. on the first Monday of every month at the Citrus County Board of Realtors, 714 Scarboro, at the corner of Scarboro and State Road 44. While youre there, you can have a cup of coffee with your Republican precinct committeemen and -women, along with some of our elected representatives. We often have guest speakers and the nonbusiness portion of the meeting is open to all. We also have four chartered Republican clubs which meet monthly: Citrus Ridge Republican Club: 7 p.m., on the third Thursday of the month at the Beverly Hills Community Center, 1 Civic Circle, Beverly Hills. The Nature Coast Republican Club: 9 a.m. on the second Saturday of the month at the American Legion Post 155, 6585 East Gulf-to-Lake Hwy, Crystal River. The North Suncoast Republican Club: 9 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month at the Sugarmill Woods Country Club, 1 Douglas St., Homosassa. The East Citrus Republican Club: 10 a.m. on the fourth Saturday of the month at the Lakes Region Library, 1511 Druid Road, Inverness. I hope you will come and join one of our clubs or the executive committee. We want to share our story with you and hear your concerns and desires for better government. If you are considering running for elected office as a Republican, we can be a resource to you. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com to discuss your candidacy. Running for elected office and representing your fellow Americans in government is what makes our country great.Michael Moberley chairman, Citrus County Republican Executive CommitteeHappy holidays!Anna DeRose is offended when someone wishes her happy holidays. She wants everyone to celebrate the Christmas season as she does, whether or not they are Christians (Chronicle,Page A10, Dec. 3). She ignores the fact that late December was a time of celebration for many years before Christ. It had its roots in the pagan celebration of the rebirth of the sun. Primitive people worried as the days got shorter and shorter and appealed to their gods to prevent the sun from disappearing altogether. Then around Dec. 21 each year a miraculous thing happened: the sun changed course and days began getting longer. This was clearly a cause for celebration and thanks to their gods. Festivities around the winter solstice continued among the many primitive religions of the time. Early Christians looking to gain adherents and avoid persecution recognized the difficulty of establishing a new celebration at a different date. The actual date of Christs birth was not known. Therefore they declared Dec. 25 as the day, and began their Christian celebrations during the winter solstice. The season has continued to exist as a festival period throughout the world, with the emphasis being more on the festive than the religious. Giftgiving, Santa Claus, Christmas trees, and the like are secular activities associated with the season. The religious significance of Christmas remains for those who choose to focus on that aspect. But many people of different religions, or no religion, celebrate the season in their own way. Anna DeRose wants the storekeepers she patronizes to figure out whether to wish her a merry Christmas, happy Hanukkah, happy New Year, happy Kwanzaa, happy Saturnalia, or some other specific greeting. Happy holidays covers them all, and is the one I prefer. So I think its quite appropriate to wish her happy holidays and let her celebrate whichever traditions she chooses.Louis Pulgrano Citrus HillsOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER17, 2013 A11 000GWA6Final Day!

Paula Otto, executive director of the Virginia Lottery and lead director for Mega Millions, said ticket sales are ahead of projections for Tuesdays drawing, increasing the likelihood it could shatter the current record of $656 million, set in a March 2012 Mega Millions drawing.Feds OK gay couple tax breaksWASHINGTON The Obama administration is letting legally married samesex couples claim some health care tax benefits for this year. A notice Monday by the IRS and Treasury Department will let the couples take advantage this year of the Supreme Courts June ruling invalidating part of the Defense of Marriage Act. The notice lets an employee receiving certain health care tax breaks to claim them for their samesex spouse this year. Usually, an employee must make their selections about who qualifies for those tax breaks before a tax year begins. They normally cannot be changed until the next tax year.Yellowstone threat gets even scarierHELENA, Mont. The hot molten rock beneath Yellowstone National Park is 2.5 times larger than previously estimated, meaning the parks supervolcano has the potential to erupt with a force about 2,000 times the size of Mount St. Helens, according to a new study. By measuring seismic waves from earthquakes, scientists were able to map the magma chamber underneath the Yellowstone caldera as 55 miles long, lead author Jamie Farrell of the University of Utah said Monday. That means there is enough volcanic material below the surface to match the largest of the supervolcanos three eruptions over the last 2.1 million years, Farrell said. The largest blast the volcanos first was 2,000 times the size of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens in Washington state. A similar one would spew large amounts of volcanic material in the atmosphere, where it would circle the earth, he said. It would be a global event, Farrell said. There would be a lot of destruction and a lot of impacts around the globe.

Venezuela revamps currencyCARACAS, Venezuela Venezuela is overhauling decade-old currency controls to benefit its struggling oil industry and arrest the decline of the bolivar on the black market. Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez says the governments 9-month-old U.S. dollar auction system will be expanded next year to provide a more favorable exchange rate to oil companies, tourists and the central banks gold purchases. Ramirez denies the move represents a stealth devaluation, though he says the auction mechanism will gradually replace the so-called Cadivi system thats used to mete out dollars to Venezuelans.Mexicans pass energy reform billMEXICO CITY In a steam-roller operation that ended Monday, a majority of Mexicos state legislatures approved sweeping energy legislation that will allow private companies to explore for and produce oil and gas in the country. It took only about three days for 17 of the 31 state legislatures, one more than needed, to approve the transformation of Mexicos state-controlled oil industry that Congress passed last week. Some of the state congresses voted through the laws in the early morning hours after little or no debate. President Enrique Pena Nietos Institutional Revolutionary Party, the PRI, relied on its dominance of most legislatures to push the bill through despite protests staged by opponents of the changes. The PRI ruled Mexico from 1929 to 2000 relying on rubber-stamp congresses, and though Mexico has become much more of a democracy since then, many saw similarities to the partys old ways.Israel, Lebanon ease tensionsJERUSALEM Israel and Lebanon on Monday rushed to ease tensions following a deadly border skirmish that left one Israeli soldier dead, with the enemy countries holding a face-toface meeting with U.N. peacekeepers and pledging their commitment to a 7-year-old cease-fire. The U.N. peacekeeping force along the volatile border, UNIFIL, said it called the meeting to establish the facts and circumstances behind the flare-up in violence and to restore a cease-fire that has been in place since a 2006 war. It said both sides pledged to preserve calm and stability. In Sundays incident, a Lebanese sniper opened fire at an Israeli vehicle traveling near the border area of Rosh Hanikra, killing a soldier inside. Several hours later, the Israeli military said it shot two Lebanese soldiers after spotting suspicious movement in the same area. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressWASHINGTON After more than 40 years of study, the U.S. government said it has found no evidence that common anti-bacterial soaps prevent the spread of germs, and regulators want the makers of Dawn, Dial and other household staples to prove their products do not pose health risks to consumers. Scientists at the Food and Drug Administration announced Monday they are revisiting the safety of triclosan and other sanitizing agents found in soap in countless kitchens and bathrooms. Recent studies suggest triclosan and similar substances can interfere with hormone levels in lab animals and spur the growth of drug-resistant bacteria. The governments preliminary ruling lends new support to outside researchers who have long argued that the chemicals are, at best, ineffective and at worst, a threat to public health. The FDA is finally making a judgment call here and asking industry to show us that these products are better than soap and water, and the data dont substantiate that, said Stuart Levy of the Tufts University School of Medicine. While the rule only applies to personal hygiene products, it has implications for a broader $1 billion industry that includes thousands of anti-bacterial products, including kitchen knives, toys, pacifiers and toothpaste. During the past 20 years, companies have added triclosan and other cleaners to thousands of household products, touting their germ-killing benefits. Under a proposed rule released Monday, the agency will require manufacturers to prove that antibacterial soaps are safe and more effective than plain soap and water. Products that are not shown to be safe and effective by late 2016 would have to be reformulated, relabeled or removed from the market. I suspect there are a lot of consumers who assume that by using an anti-bacterial soap product, they are protecting themselves from illness, protecting their families, said Sandra Kweder, deputy director in the FDAs drug center. But we dont have any evidence that that is really the case over simple soap and water. Feds eye anti-bacterial soaps FDA might require companies to prove products are effective Associated PressA bottle of Dawn Ultra antibacterial soap in a kitchen in Chicago. The Food and Drug Administration said Monday there is no evidence that antibacterial chemicals used in liquid soaps and washes help prevent the spread of germs, and there is evidence they may pose health risks. Associated PressWASHINGTON In a ruling with potentially far-reaching consequences, a federal judge declared Monday that the National Security Agencys bulk collection of millions of Americans telephone records likely violates the U.S. Constitutions ban on unreasonable search. The ruling, filled with blistering criticism of the Obama administrations arguments, is the first of its kind on the controversial program. Even if NSAs metadata collection of records should pass constitutional muster, the judge said, there is little evidence it has ever prevented a terrorist attack. The collection program was disclosed by former NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden, provoking a heated national and international debate. U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon granted a preliminary injunction against the collecting of the phone records of two men who had challenged the program and said any such records for the men should be destroyed. But he put enforcement of that decision on hold pending a near-certain government appeal, which may well end up at the Supreme Court. The injunction applies only to the two individual plaintiffs, but the ruling is likely to open the door to much broader challenges to the records collection and storage. The plaintiffs are Larry Klayman, a conservative lawyer, and Charles Strange, who is the father of a cryptologist technician who was killed in Afghanistan when his helicopter was shot down in 2011. The son worked for the NSA and support personnel for Navy SEAL Team VI. Leon, an appointee of President George W. Bush, ruled that the two men have a substantial likelihood of showing that their privacy interests outweigh the governments interest in collecting the data and therefore the NSAs bulk collection program is indeed an unreasonable search under the Constitutions Fourth Amendment. I have little doubt that the author of our Constitution, James Madison, who cautioned us to beware the abridgment of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power, would be aghast, he declared. In addition to civil liberties critics, big communications companies are unhappy with the NSA program, concerned about a loss of business from major clients who are worried about government snooping. President Barack Obama will meet Tuesday with executives from leading technology companies. The meeting was previously scheduled, but the NSA program is sure to be on the agenda, and now the court ruling will be in the mix. Court leashes NSA Associated PressA June 6 file photo shows the National Security Agency (NSA) campus in Fort Meade, Md. A federal judge said Monday the NSAs bulk collection of phone records violates the Constitutions ban on unreasonable searches. The judge put his decision on hold pending a nearly certain government appeal. Ruling could be big blow to agency; enforcement on hold Associated PressWASHINGTON Republican leaders and several hard-right groups are displaying the classic signs of a political divorce, including bitter namecalling and reprisals against one another. The recent eagerness of House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to lash out at groups that have given them fits has unshackled others in the Republican ranks to publicly question the motivation of organizations like the Senate Conservatives Fund, Heritage Action, Madison Project and Club for Growth. Such organizations disparage Republicans they accuse of following the path of least resistance in Washington and vow to replace them in primaries with conservative purists. Increasingly in public, Boehner and McConnell are challenging the outside groups credibility and complaining that they are the ones tarnishing conservatism. But it goes both ways. In the recent dust-up over the budget deal, the outside groups suspect that Boehner has a hidden motive. They suggest hes anxious to put economic fights in the rear-view mirror so he can tackle contentious immigration legislation early next year, before the first round of March primaries in Texas and Illinois. If Mitch McConnell and John Boehner think the grass roots are going to sit back and let them continue to work with Democrats to mortgage our nations future, theyre mistaken, Matt Hoskins, executive director of the Senate Conservatives Fund, said in a statement.

The conference commissioners who oversee the playoffs announced Monday their choices for the sites of the second and third championship games in the new postseason system that goes into effect next season. This was not an easy decision, said Bill Hancock, executive director of the playoff. It was a very competitive process. The decision was difficult because we received eight excellent proposals. The first championship game will played Jan. 12, 2015, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

The Panthers led 2-0 at halftime and went on to a 2-1 victory over their county rivals. DAVIDPIEKLIK CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER A matchup of county rivals went down to the wire, as Lecanto held off Crystal River 2-1 in boys soccer Monday night. The Panthers (3-4-2) jumped out to a quick 2-0 first half lead on goals by forward Lucas Ripiso. The Pirates (3-10) were not about to quit and though outhustled and outplayed in the first half, made things interesting after turning up the intensity in the second half. Pirates goal keeper Kyle Kidd did his best to keep his team in the game, making numerous big saves that included a few point-blank shots that looked to be heading for the back of the goal. He also got bailed out when defender Raymond Dingler kicked a ball away a foot from the goal line after it got by Kidd midway through the first half. We could have easily folded down and said, All right, you guys got it. Its 2-0. But I think we came back and gave them a pretty good run, Kidd said afterward.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE through ball from midfielder Evan Chapman, and then scored with less than a minute to go in the half after Crystal River unsuccessfully tried to clear the ball in front of Kidd. The Panthers outshot the Pirates 14-1 and controlled possession for three quarters of the half, and the Pirates failed to generate offense, as players failed to make runs toward the goal on sends. During halftime, Kidd said head coach Bobby Verlato and assistant coach Rob Russo got into the players heads about their sloppy play. Pirates midfielder AJ Bass put his team on the board with 26:18 left in the game after teammate Jacob Penn lobbed a pass toward Panthers goal keeper Ryan Stevens. Stevens tried sliding into the ball in a clear attempt, but it deflected off a defender and Bass fired home the rebound. Ripiso missed getting the hat trick toward the end of the game when he found himself dead center of the Pirates goal from about six feet away. As defenders closed in, he quickly spun and attempted a shot that he couldnt get squared up enough for and Kidd punched the ball up, catching the rebound. Though fired up from the save, Crystal River ran out of time to complete the rally. The Pirates face Central on the road tonight before returning home Thursday to face the Citrus Hurricanes. The Panthers head to West Port tonight. Lecanto hopes to increase its scoring after having difficulties producing goals so far this season. Ripiso said his team needs to work on finishing more, adding, I think once we get the ball past the 18, we get too nervous because we just want to score. But we have to settle down a little bit and think more. We had to learn to lose before we can learn to win, said Rob Higgins, director of the Tampa Bay sports commission. The other bidders for the 2017 game were Jacksonville; the San Francisco Bay Area; Minneapolis; San Antonio, Texas; and South Florida. The Fiesta Bowl was racked by scandal in 2011 when it was revealed by The Arizona Republic that bowl employees were being reimbursed for political contributions. Later, a 276-page report of an investigation conducted by Fiesta Bowl board members and a retired Arizona state Supreme Court justice detailed the apparent scheme. The probe also found an apparent conspiracy to conceal the reimbursement scheme from the bowls Board of Directors and state officials. Two high-ranking bowl officials were fired and later pleaded guilty to federal charges for their roles in the fraudulent campaign-contribution scheme. The Bowl Championship Series fined the Fiesta Bowl $1 million, but the game remained part of the postseason system for crowning a national champion. Under new leadership, the Fiesta Bowl has been able to hold on to a place among the elite postseason games. Credit to the commissioners for hearing me out and understanding where the Fiesta Bowl is headed, Fiesta Bowl executive director and former University of Arizona president Robert Shelton said. The championship game will be played in three time zones in the first three seasons, but Hancock said that shouldnt suggest a pattern. Obviously, playing in three time zones with the first three games was something that turned out to be important to the committee, Hancock said. I think you can expect to see the game move around to different parts of the country, but without a set rotation.

B4TUESDAY, DECEMBER17, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFOOTBALL NFL BRIEFSSteelers jump on Bengals early on Sunday nightPITTSBURGH Antonio Brown caught a touchdown pass and returned a punt for a score in a 64second span in the first quarter and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Bengals 30-20 on Sunday night. Shaun Suisham added three field goals for the Steelers (6-8), who built a 24-point lead and hardly looked like a team playing out the string. Ben Roethlisberger completed 20 of 25 passes for 191 yards with a touchdown and an interception. LeVeon Bell added 117 yards of total offense. The Bengals (9-5), looking to move closer to a third straight playoff berth, were undone by a series of special teams miscues. Andy Dalton completed 25 of 44 passes for 230 yards and two second-half touchdowns, but Cincinnati never recovered after getting staggered early at frigid Heinz Field.Jaguars WR Shorts may miss final two gamesJACKSONVILLE Jacksonvilles Cecil Shorts best season as an NFL pass receiver could be coming to a premature end. The Jaguars third-year pro has been hampered with a groin injury for much of the season. He played through the pain and had started the first 13 games, but in Sundays game against Buffalo, was listed as an inactive. On Monday, Shorts said the smartest thing to do was to shut it down for this year and look ahead to next season. Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley stopped short of saying the team would place Shorts on injured reserve in order to have surgery and get an early start on the rehab process. Shorts has caught a career-best 66 passes this season, surpassing his previous best of 55 a year ago. He has 777 yards, behind only the 971 yards he had last year.Sentencing set for man in Sean Taylor killingMIAMI A Jan. 23 sentencing date has been set for a Florida man convicted of murder in the 2007 shooting death of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor during a botched burglary at the players home. A Miami jury last month convicted 23-year-old Eric Rivera Jr. of seconddegree murder and armed burglary. Rivera faces a maximum life prison sentence but could get less. Four others were charged. One has pleaded guilty, and the others will stand trial later. Taylor also starred at the University of Miami.Shutout means payout for car dealerFEDERAL WAY, Wash. The co-owner of Jet Chevrolet in Federal Way is contacting the insurance company that backed his bet on a Seahawks shutout. The dealership sponsored a raffle with a dozen $35,000 winners if Seattle shut out New York in Sundays game. Jim Johnson told The News Tribune he didnt expect the 23-0 victory over the Giants, but hes glad it happened. Now hes making the drawing happen. About 20 people who bought cars during the promotion were given 100 entries. Another 12 walk-ins also were allowed to enter. The dealership expects to give $420,000 to the raffle winners, thanks to the Seahawks stingy defense.From wire reports BOWL GAMESCollege football FBS bowlsSaturday, Dec. 21 New Mexico Bowl At Albuquerque Washington State (6-6) vs. Colorado State (7-6), 2 p.m. (ESPN) Las Vegas Bowl Fresno State (11-1) vs. Southern Cal (9-4), 3:30 p.m. (ABC) Famous Idaho Potato Bowl At Boise, Idaho Buffalo (8-4) vs. San Diego State (7-5), 5:30 p.m. (ESPN) New Orleans Bowl Tulane (7-5) vs. Louisiana-Lafayette (8-4), 9 p.m. (ESPN) Monday, Dec. 23 Beef O Bradys Bowl At St. Petersburg Ohio (7-5) vs. East Carolina (9-3), 2 p.m. (ESPN) Tuesday, Dec. 24 Hawaii Bowl At Honolulu Oregon State (6-6) vs. Boise State (8-4), 8 p.m. (ESPN) Thursday, Dec. 26 Little Caesars Pizza Bowl At Detroit Bowling Green (10-3) vs. Pittsburgh (6-6), 6 p.m. (ESPN) Poinsettia Bowl At San Diego Northern Illinois (12-1) vs. Utah State (8-5), 9:30 p.m. (ESPN) Friday, Dec. 27 Military Bowl At Annapolis, Md.

South vs. North, 4 p.m. (NFLN) Associated PressATHENS, Ga. Hutson Mason earned the win and the respect of his teammates when he made it through his first-game jitters to lead Georgia to a comeback victory over Georgia Tech. Following that win in his first career start, Mason said he cant wait to see how hell benefit from that experience when he starts for No. 23 Georgia against Nebraska in the Gator Bowl. Mason recovered from a slow start to throw two touchdown passes in the 41-34 overtime win over Georgia Tech on Nov. 30. Mason said Monday he wants to build off that win and use the bowl game to gain momentum for 2014, when he is expected to have a full season as the starter. I know just from my standpoint, I want to keep that momentum rolling because we can have a special team next year and I want to keep that energy and that excitement moving into the offseason, Mason said. Mason, a junior, moved up as the starter after Aaron Murray tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee against Kentucky on Nov. 23. There had been much anticipation for Masons opportunity, based on the juniors performance in practice and in very limited playing time. Murray made 52 consecutive starts, so Mason had not had an opportunity to show he could be more than a backup. Mason appeared tentative at times in the first half against Georgia Tech as the Bulldogs fell behind 20-0. He almost fumbled on Georgias first possession and threw an interception on the second series of plays. It was a little shaky to start off with, Mason said. First-game jitters, whatever you want to call it. But after we scored that first touchdown, I think our momentum shifted and I calmed down. Mason kept his poise and threw a touchdown pass to Todd Gurley with only 34 seconds remaining in the first half to start the comeback. Thats the type of stuff I think we can expect from him all of next year, said offensive guard Chris Burnette, who said he thinks Mason will be a lot more comfortable in the neutral bowl site in Jacksonville after surviving the road win at Georgia Tech. Just with all of the circumstances that were involved the first (start), for him to handle it the way he did just shows hell finally be ready to go when we play in Jacksonville, Burnette said. The Georgia Tech game was Masons first start since his 2009 senior season at Lassiter High School in Marietta. After waiting so long as Murrays backup, a period of adjustment was understandable. In the second half, anybody could tell I was a lot more comfortable and finally, theres just something about momentum and finally moving the ball that makes you settle down, he said. In the second half I was just out there playing ball. Mason completed 22 of 36 passes for 299 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. The comeback from the 20-point deficit was the biggest in Mark Richts 13 seasons as coach and the third-largest in school history. Not bad for a first start. Hes just a baller and he showed it in the second half, coming back from down 20 points to get us a win, said wide receiver Michael Bennett, who caught a 9-yard touchdown pass from Mason. Hopefully thats a sign for really good things to come and this Gator Bowl will be huge for him, too, especially going into next year. Associated PressGeorgia quarterback Hutson Mason hands off to Todd Gurley against Georgia Tech on Nov. 30 in Atlanta. The Bulldogs defeated the Yellow Jackets in Masons first career start after Aaron Murray was injured a week earlier. Georgias Mason aims to keep momentum for 2014 Miami into playoffs with two more wins Associated PressDAVIE One play from defeat each of the past two weeks, the Miami Dolphins are now two wins from their first playoff berth since 2008. The Dolphins (8-6) control their own destiny and will earn the AFCs sixth and final wild-card spot if they win Sunday at Buffalo and beat the New York Jets at home in the regularseason finale. Miami managed a second consecutive narrow escape Sunday, intercepting Tom Bradys pass in the end zone with 2 seconds left to beat AFC East leader New England 24-20. The previous week, the Dolphins won at Pittsburgh 34-28 when the Steelers Antonio Brown barely stepped out of bounds before reaching the end zone on a wild final play. I dont care if its the last play of the game, or we won by 40 points, Miami defensive end Cameron Wake said. Either way, at the end of the day its a W in the column. The Dolphins might seem improbable playoff contenders. Theyve been outgained this year by 378 yards and rank in the lower half of the NFL in many offensive categories. A bullying scandal had the team in a tailspin only a few weeks ago, when tackle Jonathan Martin abruptly departed and guard Richie Incognito was suspended. But the Dolphins are 5-2 since Martin left, a surge that has saved their season and might extend it. To actually do the job after what theyve gone through, this is the very essence what we call that football family, when youre going through tough situations to come out better than you actually (were) when you went in, said former Pro Bowl receiver Michael Irvin, an analyst on the NFL Network. Coincidentally, the last-second hero in the latest victory was Michael Thomas, who was Martins teammate at Stanford and remains a good friend. Making his NFL debut after being signed last week off the 49ers practice squad, Thomas broke up one pass in the end zone in the final seconds and then intercepted Brady on fourth down. That sealed the Dolphins third win in a row. Theyll be favored in their final two, although they lost at home to lowly Buffalo in October. With Sundays victory, the Dolphins ended a streak of four consecutive losing seasons, the franchises longest since the 1960s. They also ended a streak of seven losses in a row to nemesis New England. This feels like finally getting over the hump, tackle Bryant McKinnie said. This is coming together at a good time, because you know December is when you want to be playing your best ball. McKinnie does know last season he helped the Baltimore Ravens win the Super Bowl. The Dolphins arent yet talking Super Bowl, since their most recent playoff victory came in 2000. But the bandwagons growing for the attendance-challenged franchise, and the latest seesaw victory had fans in a frenzy and players showing some swagger. As long as we dont beat ourselves, we can beat anybody, receiver Mike Wallace said. It was a great win for the organization and for the fans, but we have bigger things in mind. When Thomas made his clinching interception, he was swarmed by teammates who didnt even know his name, and the celebration reduced the safety to tears. Im going to remember this one for the rest of my life, Thomas said. To see the whole team embrace me like this, the rest of the organization, I mean even the trainers and stuff like that, thats what you want. Thats why you play the game, for that camaraderie. Associated PressMiamis Michael Thomas, right, intercepts a ball intended for New England wide receiver Austin Collie, left, as Miami cornerback Will Davis defends, late in the second half Sunday in Miami Gardens. The interception sealed a 24-20 Dolphins victory. Miami is two wins away from its first playoff appearance since 2008. Source: Incognito to sit out rest of seasonDAVIE A person familiar with the situation said Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito will remain on the NFLs suspended list for the rest of the season, including the playoffs. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Dolphins declined to comment on Incognitos status. The person also said Incognito will be paid while suspended and would be in line for a playoff share. Incognito was suspended Nov. 3 in the wake of the teams bullying scandal. He filed a grievance Nov. 14 against the Dolphins seeking to rejoin the team, but later withdrew it.From wire reports

Some of these you may be able to prevent and others you may not. This all sounds well and good and helpful. It costs only $99 and so it is not very expensive. What is the caveat? Recently, the FDA has asked the company to stop marketing its product. The Mountain View, Calif., companys saliva collection kit and Personal Genome Service (PGS) is being marketed without marketing clearance or approval in violation of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act), the agency said in a letter to the company Recently, there have been lots of advertisements by a genetics company for testing of your various genes.

This month Im spotlighting three books that make startling claims. Each book is backed by solid research. All three emphasize the extraordinary impact of lifestyle on health, whether dealing with diabetes, cancer, heart disease or any other of the chronic diseases that plague us today. Goodbye Diabetes Dr. Wes Youngbergs recent book, Goodbye Diabetes, tells the stories of many diabetic patients who successfully reversed their disease, even when it had reached life-threatening levels. His extensive work in this field and his research references provide solid support for his thesis. Using the striking analogy of the Titanic, where passengers, crew and officers alike ignored advance warning signals of danger ahead, the author notes that early warning signals in diabetes are often ignored until disaster is imminent. At that point, life-saving treatment can be difficult and may be impossible. Dr. Youngberg, a faculty member at Loma Linda University, depicts early warning signals for diabetes very clearly, describes effective treatment measures, and finally spells out lifestyle measures that can prevent and even reverse clinical diabetes. He states flatly that percent of diabetes cases need never exist. Many, if not most, cases of diagnosed type 2 diabetes can be reversed. After describing the many complications of diabetes, his book informs us how healthy lifestyle measures can prevent and reverse most of them. Anticancer: A New Way of Life This book by Dr. David ServanSchreiber is remarkable on many levels. First, its a riveting story of how he accidentally discovered his own brain cancer. He goes on to tell the extraordinary story of how he coped with his devastating disease. He had the best surgical and chemotherapeutic treatment possible, and had five years of remission in which he pursued his academic research in neuroscience and his career as a clinical professor of psychiatry. Then, his brain cancer returned. The news was again devastating. As a neuroscientist himself, ServanSchreiber was aware of cutting-edge research being done in cancer. With own his life at stake, he set out to understand the complex inner workings of the bodys natural cancer-fighting capabilities. He made big changes in his diet and exercise regimen, applied stressreduction techniques, and for a span of 14 years, he enjoyed superb health. Sad to say, Dr. Servan-Schreiber had another recurrence 19 years after his initial cancer, which was fatal. Disease-Proof: The Remarkable Truth About What Makes Us Well Dr. David L. Katz, the author of this powerful new book on preventing our deadliest diseases, is the founding director of Yale Universitys Prevention Research Center at Griffin Hospital. He has published more than 150 scientific papers, has authored or coauthored 15 books, and is editor-inchief of the journal Childhood Obesity. For years, most scientists thought that our genes determined our fate. Completion of the human genome map in 2003 and follow-up research gives us a much different understanding. The startling truth is that each of us influences our genes to a much greater degree than we thought possible. In Disease-Proof, he gives readers dozens of practical tips on smart shopping, healthy cooking, eating out and other healthy activities. His tips are well-tested, many based on research done at Yales Prevention Research Center. Disease-Proof provides much practical wisdom about learning and applying the skills of a healthy lifestyle.Ed Dodge, M.D., MPH, is a retired physician now living in Texas. Visit his website, www.thepoweroflifestyle.com. posted on the FDA website Monday. Therefore, 23andMe must immediately discontinue marketing the PGS until such time as it receives FDA marketing authorization for the device. In its letter, the FDA says: Some of the uses for which PGS is intended are particularly concerning, such as assessments for B RCArelated genetic risk and drug responses (e.g., warfarin sensitivity, clopidogrel response, and 5fluorouracil toxicity) because of the potential health consequences that could result from false positive or false negative assessments for highrisk indications such as these. For instance, if the BRCA-related risk assessment for breast or ovarian cancer reports a false positive, it could lead a patient to undergo prophylactic surgery, chemoprevention, intensive screening, or other morbidity inducing actions, while a false negative could result in a failure to recognize an actual risk that may exist. Is this real or just the FDA stepping its boundary or is it government over regulating the public? I dont think so. Reliability of any test depends on the accuracy. Inaccurate tests may do more harm than good. As per the FDA, The risk of serious injury or death is known to be high when patients are either non-compliant or not properly dosed; combined with the risk that a direct-to-consumer test result may be used by a patient to self-manage, serious concerns are raised if test results are not adequately understood by patients or if incorrect test results are reported. I am not saying that and Me testing is of poor quality, but I definitely agree that proper oversight is extremely important. In short, think twice before going for unapproved testing.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is the volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society.

My recommendation is usually yes, unless exercise may pose a risk to the patient. If you talk to patients, they have endless reasons for why they exercise and how it makes them feel better. It helps people stay with treatment and feel better about life. It gives them feelings of control and hope. Youre going to be able to interact with your family and friends better and do the things that are meaningful for you. Then after treatment, one of the big things were seeing is that exercise radically reduces fatigue. So, if you are going to exercise, when do you start and how much is enough? I personally think you should start exercising the day you are told you have cancer. The amount of exercise will vary depending on age, what kind of surgery you have had, and your physical limitations. Its really about learning to work around your limitations, looking at the positive aspects, and saying, these are the things I can do. With older people, its probably much more important to exercise, because they get debilitated and lose physical strength or ability more quickly than others. You should start off slowly; way slower than what you think you should be doing. Most people think back to when they were 18 or 20 and think theyll just go back to the kind of exercise they did then. They push themselves beyond what they can do. They get sore and more tired, so they quit. I generally tell people to exercise at least every other day for at least 1530 minutes. That amount of time can greatly reduce fatigue. It also improves your quality of life, bone strength, and body composition, the bodys balance of fat to muscle. People are generally able to exercise for that length of time and it helps both physically and emotionally. Should everyone exercise? The answer is no. I tell people not to exercise if theyre having bad side effects from chemo, if theyre getting sick from it, experiencing pain, nausea, fever, dizziness, shortness of breath, low blood counts or heart problems. Otherwise you can exercise. Even in a hospital bed, you can do exercises to keep your muscles strong. Even though it doesnt help your cardiovascular fitness, it keeps your muscles strong so you can get up and walk out of the room. The situations mentioned above are really the only times to avoid exercise. If there are some limitations from a recent surgery, you can adapt an exercise program around your limitations. The type of exercise can be adjusted as well. If you are only choosing one type of exercise, aerobic exercise such as walking, biking, swimming, or dancing is better than resistance exercise such as weight lifting or strengthbuilding. Ultimately, if somebody has time to do a little resistance training and a little more aerobic training, that would be ideal. If youre up walking or riding your bike or doing an activity that you like, youre going to get stronger and continue with your exercise routine.Dr. C.

Associated PressMike Kelley and veterinarian Dr. Mary Gardner stroke Kelleys 10-year-old cat Andy on the evening of Nov. 9, when Gardner came to euthanize the animal in Newport Beach, Calif. It happened with the help of Gardner, cofounder of Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice, the countrys first organized network of veterinarians who provide hospice and end-of-life care in the pets home. Associated PressLOS ANGELES As Mike Kelley stroked his cat Andy for the last time, he recalled how the feline would eat yogurt every morning and meet him at the door every night. Kelley told stories about his beloved pet before Dr. Mary Gardner gave the 10-year-old cat a shot and he went to sleep for the last time. After Andy developed liver disease, Kelley sought the support of the hospice veterinarian, who came to his home, listened to him talk about his cat and eventually allowed Andy to die with dignity. Its in line with a continuing trend of animal lovers committing increasing time and expense to pet care. About four years ago, Gardner of Yorba Linda and Dr. Dani McVety of Tampa, Fla., co-founded Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice Inc., a national network of veterinarians providing end-of-life services for sick animals like Andy. The vets dont just manage a pets nutrition, medication, mobility and cremation arrangements, they comfort grieving families and prepare any fellow pets for the tough days ahead. And, ultimately, they will euthanize when the vet and owner agree the time is right. He was my best buddy. He was there every day for me. I would have done anything to keep him here, said Kelley of Newport Beach. But he didnt want Andy to suffer after medication stopped working and the cat lost his appetite. Lap of Love is the first organized group of its kind in the country, said Colleen Ellis, director of the International Association for Animal Hospice and Palliative Care. The group helps with the last hours of life and the first hours of death of animals ranging from dogs and cats to hamsters and potbellied pigs. The association says there are many vets, vet techs and even a Northern California animal sanctuary that take in terminally ill or elderly pets for hospice care and, eventually, euthanasia. Lap of Love is the biggest organization and the only one composed entirely of experienced veterinarians. Lap of Love partner vets only accept pets nearing the end of life and are often referred by the animals regular veterinarian or a surgeon. Veterinarian hospice care is a lot like human hospice care. The goal is comfort. We are not trying to cure, just manage the symptoms so that they are as comfortable as possible, McVety said. Vet hospice is where human hospice was 50 or 60 years ago. Costs of the services vary across the country, but they range from $200 to $400 for hospice care and about the same for inhome euthanasia.HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, DECEMBER17, 2013 C3 Autumn has arrived and the weather is perfect for golf, tennis and gardening. The increase in activity can cause hip pain. If you start to experience hip pain then I recommend an X-ray of your pelvis and an exam by a chiropractor or D.O. to determine if the pain is coming from your hip, your pelvic alignment or from your lumbar spine, otherwise known as lower back. People often mistake pain being generated by the nerves of the lumbar spine or sacroiliac joint for hip arthritis. The hip is a ball-and-socket joint located at the top of the leg and the pain from hip degenerative arthritis is usually a deep ache in the front at the top of the leg. The pain may radiate down the thigh from any of the three pain generators mentioned above. This is why it is important to have an orthopedic exam to differentiate the cause of pain. If the source of the pain is truly the hip joint, then it may be best to have physical therapy to postpone a hip replacement, unless there is no cartilage left in the hip. One reason to postpone hip surgery if possible is that the artificial joints have a lifespan of a certain number of years. Another reason to procrastinate is that the hip replacement is a major surgery with risks. Sometimes a combination of chiropractic instrument adjusting, which is a gentle manipulation to increase joint motion, combined with hip exercises help people avoid surgery for at least a few years with a minimum of pain. Gentle chiropractic has successfully helped with many cases of hip osteoarthritis provided that the joint is not bone on bone. Often there is a combination of hip and low back osteoarthritis. Occasionally the painful hip is not the hip with the most degeneration on X-ray. This is a clue that the pain may be coming from elsewhere. The proper orthopedic exam should identify all of the pain generators. If lumbar and pelvic misalignment is seen on X-ray, as well as hip degeneration, I recommend chiropractic care for these with massage and exercise to both hips and to the low back, as well as gentle adjusting to improve alignment and restore joint motion. I assign home exercises to help bring about a lasting change for the better. Chiropractic may also offer microcurrent acupuncture and laser therapy to help the healing process. This combination of therapies can help to postpone or avoid surgery.Dr. Cheryl McFarland-Bryant maintains an active Florida Medical Technologist license. Contact her at 352-795-8911 or visit 6166 W.

These adverse reactions can be mild or they can be serious. Drug reactions as a result of several medications being mixed can also be a factor and this even includes over-the-counter medications, as well as herbal preparations. The vast majority of adverse drug reactions do not involve the immune system. This is termed a side effect. When the immune system is involved, the individual or patient is classified as drug hypersensitive. Drug allergies are an example of this hypersensitivity. When you have a drug allergy that involves hypersensitive reactions this means that your immune system is involved and causing the reaction. Reactions of this nature most often occur if drugs are given intravenously or by injection. This is because they enter the system and circulation rapidly and taking medications by mouth is slower to absorb. Also, there is some correlation with allergic reactions when medication is taken in large doses. Some of the most common medications that are likely to produce an allergic reaction include antibiotics, anticonvulsants, hormones and insulin. This is because they are taken not just one time, but on a continuous basis and that seems to increase the risk. Some symptoms of an allergic reaction include skin rashes, hives, itching and respiratory problems, including wheezing, swelling of areas of the body including the lips and tongue and airway. When it is a severe reaction and life-threatening it is called anaphylaxis. Allergic reactions can occur within seconds, minutes or even hours. It has been documented that a rash or hive can develop days after medication was discontinued. Anaphylaxis is the scariest and most dangerous form of this problem and results in airway problems, blood pressure dropping, lightheadedness, loss of consciousness and shock. It is typically treated with adrenaline or epinephrine, antihistamines and steroids. Fortunately, most people do not experience anaphylaxis. If you have adverse drug reactions or side effects and it is important to make sure that your doctor is well aware of these episodes. You want to make sure that you have a discussion with your doctor and even show him or her the exact medication. Details like when the medicine was taken, how long it took for the symptoms to begin, how long they lasted and of course a description of the symptoms. Also very valuable is a list of any other medications you were taking at the same time because of the potential for interaction. Good recordkeeping will help uncover the underlying cause to make sure they can be avoided in the future. This information helps doctors select alternative medications should the problem that you are taking the medication for occur once again. If you suspect a drug reaction and it is minimal and you feel comfortable, you can call your doctor and ask for advice. If there is any concern whatsoever about your immediate safety, you should dial 911. If you have some tendency to have these kinds of reactions you might want to have some medication on hand. A classic example is an EpiPen and the need and recommendation for use can be reviewed by your doctor. Antihistamines such as Benadryl have been used for years for mild situations, but the best treatment is avoidance or prevention.

Q:During this year I have had a set of dentures made for me after removing my remaining teeth, which were in very poor shape. I have had nothing but problems with these new dentures and have been back for sores at least 20 times by now. Certainly this cannot be the norm for this. Can you give me your opinion on this? Thank you in advance. A: I am sorry to hear that you have had such troubles with your new teeth. It sounds like you have had what we call immediate dentures made. Immediate dentures are dentures that are made while the remaining teeth are still in the mouth. These teeth get removed the same day you get your new teeth, hence, immediate dentures. I happen to enjoy this part of my practice very much. I get great satisfaction when someone comes back after they have received their new teeth and thanks me, it puts a smile on everyones face the patient, my staff and, of course, myself. Unfortunately, it did not go the same way for you. There are many steps that are taken to get to the end result that I did with the patient I just mentioned. In fact, they are too many to list. Some of the more critical steps are:Accurate impressions: I prefer a two-step method that involves making an initial impression from which a custom tray is made. This custom tray is then used to make the final impression that, in itself, entails multiple steps.Accurate records: This includes things like the shape, color and position of the teeth. However, the part that makes the most difference for avoiding sores is the recording of the upper and lower jaw positions as they relate to each other. This step is critical in minimizing the number of sore spots that the patient may experience.Finally, and of equal importance, is the lab and materials and methods used to actually fabricate the final denture. What you are experiencingis not the norm. Needing twenty adjustments is actually very unusual. Most patients experience far fewer adjustments. Since you have had little success thus far you might ask to meet with your dentist to have a talk. Ask him or her whatever is on your mind and try to come up with a plan that makes sense to you. If you are successful and feel confident, proceed and hope things turn out well. If, on the other hand, you have this meeting and things are just not working out the way you envisioned, you might want to seek out a second opinion. Listen to what the new dentist has to say and really think about whether what they suggest makes sense. If it does, you might want to proceed with the new dentist. If not, unfortunately, you might have to resort to another opinion. I can honestly say it is rare that there is no solution to a problem. Please stay positive. The right solution is out there.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Seeking a way to honor our servicemen and -women, Lion Carol Phillips and Jeri Augustine co-produced Sentimental Journey, a musical dinner theatre at the Homosassa Lions Club, to benefit the clubs varied community projects, as well as their signature eye, hearing and diabetic awareness projects. And a sentimental journey it was, with volunteer cast members Jan Ashworth, Kathleen Dobran, Danielle Flury, Jan Hunt, Fran Scott, Monica Tichauer, Richard Flury, Hugh Phillips, Mike Shier I and II and Frank Miller, who served as the radio announcer. It was Radio Station WUSA. It was the 1940s and nostalgia ran rampant throughout the splendid evening as song after song evoked lovely memories of the era long past. We thrilled to patriotic songs, hit parade songs, enchanting ballads and humorous novelty hits. We even enjoyed the radio commercials. Favorite artists Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Bing Crosby, Perry Como, Kate Smith and Ella Fitzgerald were brought to life once more. Phillips, a retired veteran, and Augustine royally honored all service personnel, including her father, who was a Navy commander, and her two cousins, now in their 90s, who served in the Navy as well during World War II. With star vocalists and the movie greats photo posters decorating the walls, including Carmen Miranda, Olivia De Havilland, Judy Garland, Humphrey Bogart, Rita Hayworth, Fred MacMurray, Loretta Young and Kay Kyser, we were transported back in time with Frank Miller and Fran Scott singing the theme song, Sentimental Journey. There were the ever-constant commercials interrupting the music, including Jell-O, that versatile gelatin in all the colorful fruit flavors. The audience was invited to sing along as the various branches of service songs were sung and veterans stood and were honored. Fran Scotts medley of favorites, Now is the Hour, Dont Sit Under the Apple Tree, and Ill Walk Alone, said it all as we recalled saying farewell to our soldiers, were asked to remain faithful while they were away and walked alone for the duration. We recalled our romances as Danielle Flury performed The Things We Did Last Summer and Bob Hopes theme song, Ill Be Seeing You. Jan Ashworth sang Harbor Lights and Heart Aches. Danielle and Richard Flury performed a rousing rendition of Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition. Frank Millers medley, All of Me, Someone to Watch Over Me and They Cant take That Away From Me, brought to mind memories of those we love to recall. Kathleen Dobran sang the hauntingly beautiful Till the End of Time and Saturday Night Is the Loneliest Night. The highlight we had long anticipated, the appearance of Mr. Showman himself, Mike Shier II, sang, Long Ago and Far Away, and All or Nothing at All. Monica Tichauer followed with The Last Time I Saw Paris and La Vie en Rose. The Flurys returned to the mic with When the Lights Go On Again, White Cliffs of Dover and Disneys When You Wish Upon a Star. Classic music vocalist Hugh Phillips thrilled us with Besame Mucho. Stage Door Canteen pieces continued after the intermission. The show continued with all-time hits made popular by artists we love. Hugh Phillips sang, I Dont Want to Set the World on Fire. Fran Scott belted out Birth of the Blues, At Last and my favorite, The Gypsy, recorded by Sam Cooke. Mike Shier II brought down the house with his version of Blueberry Hill. Space allotted me for this column will not allow additional comments on the three-hour-plus show that concluded with the cast performing Grand Old Flag and God Bless America as we stood in sincere recognition of our brave servicemen and Frank Miller played Taps. Thanks, Jeri and Carol, for taking us on that memorable Sentimental Journey with you.Ruth Levins participates in a variety of projects around the community.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER17, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Robert Orben, a comedy writer and occasional magician, said, There are days when it takes all youve got just to keep up with the losers. At the bridge table, every day you should be keeping up with i.e., counting your losers, even during the bidding. Take a look at todays deal, which occurred in a social game. How would you critique the auction? Norths response of two no-trump was the Jacoby Forcing Raise, showing at least game-going values with four or more spades. Souths three-club rebid indicated a singleton or void in that suit. First, although Norths hand has only nine high-card points, with three first-round controls, it is worth a game-force in spades. (The hand has only seven losers: two spades, two diamonds and three clubs.) It is not normal to start with the Jacoby Forcing Raise when having a short suit. It is typical to respond with a splinter bid, but North and South were treating a four-heart response as natural, not showing heart shortness and spade support. On this deal, though, two no-trump should have worked well because North heard that his side had at most one club loser, not the three he was initially worried about. Now he should have control-bid three diamonds or made a four-heart splinter bid. Norths jump to four spades was discouraging. (Yes, he was worried that he had only nine points, but the auction had told him that his hand was worth far more.) Six spades made easily, South taking six spades, five diamonds and a heart ruff in the dummy.

I dont care to watch it myself, but if my husband asks me to join him in his viewing, I will. Recently, I found out that my husband was watching porn on his phone at work. When I confronted him, he claimed it was just an advertising pop-up. But I knew he was not being truthful. I checked his phone and found that these were actual websites that you have to log on to in order to view the contents. I dont like him to watch porn at all, but Id rather we watch together than know hes accessing live webcam shows and chat rooms. I consider this to be cheating. I have told him how it makes me feel and have asked him to stop. But he says hes going to continue because he enjoys it and sees nothing wrong with it. Now he erases the data from his phone so I wont see it. After 28 years together, he is now deceiving me, and I am terribly hurt. He doesnt seem to care how I feel or that he is damaging the trust between us. What did I do wrong for him to treat me this way? I have asked him to see a marriage counselor or a sex therapist with me, but hes not interested. I love him, but I dont think I can live with this kind of life. Do you think watching and chatting with a real naked woman online is cheating? What about watching porn behind your wifes back? Is this normal behavior in a marriage? Angel in Anaheim Dear Angel: A marriage is not healthy when one partner doesnt care about the feelings of the other. Unlike oldfashioned pornography, the Internet provides real women, in real time, performing virtual sex acts. This not only creates unrealistic expectations of ones actual partner, but it can become addictive. Your husband may not be having an affair, but he is both sexually and emotionally connected to other women, which could be considered cheating. Since your husband refuses to go for counseling, please go on your own and sort it out. Dear Annie: My husband, Tom, passed away nearly three years ago. He had a lot of friends, most of whom I havent seen since Toms funeral. Our daughter has since gotten engaged, and we are now in the process of creating the guest list. Are we obligated to invite Toms closest friends even though they have made no effort to stay in touch with our family? Bitter in Vermont Dear Bitter: Unless your daughter would like these people to be invited, you are not obligated to include those friends who have made no effort to stay in your life (or hers) for the past three years. Our condolences. Dear Annie: I read the letter from No Early Bird in California about DPSD, a circadian rhythm disorder that prevents people from having a regular sleep schedule. It has a name! Thank heavens! No one can understand the frustration and struggle I have had with this all of my life. I have tried so hard to go to sleep at a normal hour and wake up early, but cannot. I miss out on a lot, but I cant help it. I feel fine when I am able to live according to my natural schedule, working night jobs and hanging out with other night people. Night Owl Dear Night Owl: Many readers were surprised and delighted to discover that their late-night sleep schedule could be identified. Heres another viewpoint: Dear Annie: I am typically up until 2 a.m. and sleep until 10. I get my eight hours each night. I do whatever my day calls for during my waking hours with no problem. Why should this be called a disorder? My order is fine. Who determines what is normal? Different is not synonymous with abnormal.
