Former teacher sentenced for child pornA former longtime middle school teacher was sentenced to 15 months in prison Tuesday by Judge Richard Ric Howard on child pornography charges. Joseph Michael Balint, 63, of Pine Drive, Sugarmill Woods, was facing 11 felony counts of possession of pornography. He was sentenced to 15 months on all the charges, which will run concurrently. Authorities said Balint had downloaded child pornography on his computer at home. Balint, who is a 35-year veteran of public education, including the past 23 years at Crystal River Middle School, abruptly resigned his position in November 2012. School officials had told him he was being removed from the classroom because he was the target of a criminal investigation. He was arrested on Jan. 17, 2013, and charged. None of his activities occurred at school. Balint spent seven years in Palm Beach County before being hired in 1985 as a Lecanto High School social studies teacher. He was dean of students at LHS for three years before moving to Crystal River Middle School in 1990.Inverness council votes to relax blue lawAfter Tuesdays Inverness City Council meeting, those who want to order a Bloody Mary at brunch or buy a six-pack of beer before 1 p.m. on Sundays in the city of Inverness are one step closer to being able to do so. By a 4 to 1 vote, the council voted to change the long-standing blue law that prohibits the sale or serving of alcohol on Sundays between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Councilman Ken Hinkle was the lone opposing vote. Mayor Bob Plaisted also expressed his opposition. We all talk about how we want to leave the city better than when we got here, and Im not sure how changing an alcohol law to provide more time for people to drink is going to make the city better, Plaisted said. Passing this ordinance allows our proprietors, people who pay taxes, to be at a competitive level with other businesses in Citrus County, said Councilman Cabot McBride. The ordinance now goes to the mayor for his signature.

Members of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) split the proposed motion because they said they would like to do more research before discussing the sale of the jail. That gave them two motions instead of one: The first to start the ordinance-writing procedure to sell property and the second to look at the advantages and disadvantages of selling the county detention facility. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said the situation was raised when the current leaseholder of the county jail, Corrections Corporations of America (CCA), approached the county with a question about purchasing the facility and then contracting with the county to house prisoners. Thorpe said he would ask the board for direction because, without a county ordinance setting the guidelines for a sale, the county would be guided by Florida Statute 125.35(1)(a) that directs a sale to the highest and best bidder through a competitive process. A county ordinance would codify and clarify the sale process, according to acting County Attorney Kerry Parsons. What this ordinance does is it establishes a place where anyone Sell the jail?

The Citrus Memorial Health Foundation on Monday soundly rejected demands by the Citrus County Hospital Board that Beaty resign as chief executive officer in return for dropping two lawsuits against the foundation. Mr. Beatys employment remains as is, foundation attorney Clark Stillwell said, following an hour-long closed-door meeting with foundation members to discuss the settlement offer. Instead, foundation members reverted to their position that they will not approve a letter of intent with Hospital Corporation of America until pending lawsuits are dismissed. Foundation chairwoman Sandy Chadwick said the foundation has decided, however, to place its total emphasis now on developing the letter of intent, or LOI, leaving lawsuit details for later. The people of Citrus County are over it, Chadwick said Tuesday, referring to litigation discussions. Were tired of it. The idea of getting rid of Mr. Beaty is I cant think of a tactful way to describe it. CCHB attorney Bill Grant said Tuesday that, absent Beatys resignation, the hospital board will not dismiss lawsuits until a definitive agreement is signed with HCA. If he stays, he stays, Grant said. We are not going to dismiss the lawsuits until the closing. If thats their position, were at loggerheads.

The inaugural night of the sheriffs offices Tweet the Beat effort turned out to be a readymade torrent of the mundane responding to accident scenes, false alarm reports of crimes that didnt happen to the hair-raising chase and arrest of a fleeing drug suspect. It was pretty actionpacked, said Blair, who is a spokeswoman with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office.

Both the foundation and Citrus County Hospital Board met for nearly three hours Monday night to discuss details of the letter of intent, a nonbinding document that sets the stage for due diligence by HCA and, eventually, a final contract. HCA is proposing to pay $140 million up front for a 50-year lease. The two boards covered just a few letter-of-intent topics Monday. They agreed to meet again Jan. 10.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com. Special to the ChronicleFrom the outside, it looks like an ordinary house with lights on a traditional Christmas tree sparkling through the front window. But Contento Cottage was designed and built in 2008 for those men and women at the Key Training Center with developmental disabilities who require wheelchairs for mobility. The halls are wider, the countertops are lower, the bathrooms are equipped with the safety bars, and the floors are made to endure the constant wheelchair traffic from the five residents. Inside, the men and women who live at Contento Cottage were grinning from beneath their red and green felt elf hats, surrounded by almost 200 toys of all shapes and sizes. Dorothy Cole, Betty Jean Daniel, Fred Everett, Shelly Hilsman, Alfred Jordan and Carlene Skidmore have been on a mission since the day after Christmas last year. Each month they have taken their own money and shopped for the gifts to give to Toys for Tots. They stored them in closets, stuffed them in boxes and stacked them in cabinets, watching the gifts mount as they each contributed to the project. Sometimes they went to Walmart, other times they traveled to Dollar General or Family Dollar. They clipped coupons and searched for sales, proud of their shopping expertise and even more excited about the number of toys they were able to accumulate throughout the year. They are our Christmas spirit, said Contento resident manager Dawn Cruz, who is joined by eight fulland part-time staffers. We all want to be the ones to go Christmas toy shopping with them each month. Its like Christmas never goes away, it is always here with us. Each resident of Contento Cottage faces severe medical obstacles. Not only are there mobility issues to deal with, but each has his or her own disability and challenge. Yet at Christmas, they agree not to ask for help for themselves, but to help others. We love the children, said Fred as he clutched a dump truck. We want them to know we love them. The toys will be picked up by Paul Pilny, Citrus Countys Toys for Tots coordinator, and then distributed to local boys and girls who, without help, might not have gifts this Christmas season. You tell us who doesnt have a toy, cried out Charlene, and we will get them a toy. No one should be without a present on Christmas day. Her Contento family applauded in agreement. We are so proud of them, said Cruz, fighting to keep the tears from falling. They teach us every day more about giving than most people ever understand.

It is a learning tool to help residents understand what the deputies go through. She said the Twitter event, which simultaneously posted her tweets through Facebook and Instagram, was a learning experience for her and others in the agency about how to engage people through social media. Blair said gauging from the public response, Mondays tweet exercise was a success. She said anywhere between 20 to 50 people were following the tweets at any given time. Some were tweeting to thank us and there were 60-plus retweets, Blair said. Retweets occur when someone who was following the sheriffs office picks up the tweet, or message, and resends it to their friends. From the start, Blair, who was riding with Sgt. Bobby Lambert, had to respond to a vehicle accident on Dunnellon Road. Semi vs car on Dunnellon Road. Making sure traffic is able get by, Blair tweeted during the initial hour of the ride-along. A couple of hours later, Blair and Lambert were on the lookout for people suspected of theft from the Publix on County Road 486. Then they were darting to a possible home invasion in Beverly Hills oops, false alarm. Shortly thereafter, Lambert made arrests in the thefts at Publix. At least two arrested in the Publix thefts that occurred less than an hour ago, Blair tweets. Blair and Lambert headed to Publix to return some inventory recovered from the arrested suspects. About five hours into the ride-along, Lambert observed an SUV driver roll through a stop sign. He followed the vehicle briefly, but the driver, Kenneth Lee Marshall, 23, accelerated and the chase was on, according to his arrest affidavit. Marshall reportedly bailed from the vehicle and a foot-chase ensued, ending in his arrest. Lambert ripped the left pant leg of his uniform during the pursuit. Marshall was eventually charged on five counts, including resisting an officer with violence, possession of a controlled substance, and fleeing and eluding. His bond was $8,500. That was a little scary, Blair said. This guy actually turned off his lights during the chase, she said. Blair said the agency plans on having these virtual tweet events every month one with law enforcement and the other with fire and rescue. I think internally, morale-wise this is a really good thing. A lot of the patrol deputies are excited about sharing with the residents what they do, Blair said.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline.com.

Mark OMara said on his website that the inquiry was opened before the trial when his office contacted the bar for advice on how it should go about managing the fund and website it set up to assist it in Zimmermans second-degree murder case in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The issue was deferred until after the trial and OMara said he is certain that matter will be closed shortly, and that the conclusion will suggest that we handled these new and novel approaches in an appropriate and ethical way. Florida bar spokeswoman Francine Walker said in an email that the complaint was at the staff investigation level and that she couldnt provide further information due to confidentiality rules.

From staff reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Deadline approaching Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Supreme Court isnt the only challenge facing a petition drive to put a proposed medical marijuana constitutional amendment on Floridas 2014 ballot. Organizers have until Feb. 1 to gather 683,189 voter signatures. As of Tuesday, 162,866 signatures had been certified. Still, John Morgan of the Morgan & Morgan personal injury law firm thinks theres a good chance a final push will get the effort hes organizing over the top. It better, or Im paying a lot of money for nothing. Ill be wanting a recount, said Morgan, who expects hell personally spend $2 million on the petition drive before its over. As of the end of last month, $1.3 million has been spent on the effort about $1 million out of Morgans pocket. Organizers gathered nearly 100,000 petitions last week, bringing the total to nearly 700,000. Now its a matter of building a cushion to account for invalid signatures. About a quarter of the signatures on the petition wont be valid because people signing arent registered to vote in Florida, Morgan estimates. Even if he gets the signatures, Morgan still has to worry about whether the Supreme Court approves ballot summary language that could let voters decide whether to allow marijuana use for medical reasons. Attorney General Pam Bondi is challenging the wording, saying voters will be misled into approving widespread use of medical marijuana. Proponents say voters will clearly know they are deciding whether doctors can use their expertise on whether to prescribe the drug for debilitating conditions. The court heard arguments earlier this month. It will not rule on whether it approves of medical marijuana, but rather whether the 74-word ballot summary is misleading or not. Citizen initiatives are limited to 75 words when summing up a proposed constitutional amendment. Morgan said hes taken on the cause because hes seen the benefit of using the drug. Ive seen it work twice. I saw it work with my father 20 years ago and I see it work with my brother every single day, said Morgan, whose father had esophageal cancer and whose brother is a quadriplegic. NANCY KENNEDY /ChronicleAs Patrina Ritter of Regions Bank looks on, Marshall Earnest, incoming president and one of the charter members of the Greater Inverness Olde Towne Association (IOTA), presents members with plans for the future of the organization Tuesday. The breakfast meeting was at Beef O Bradys in Inverness. NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS What began in 1994 with a handful of downtown Inverness merchants has evolved into a 63-member organization that extends beyond the city limits. The Greater Inverness Olde Towne Association, or IOTA, today encompasses the area covered by all of the Inverness zip codes 34450, 34451, 34452 and 34453. There are about 800-plus businesses in that area right now, said incoming IOTA president Marshall Earnest. Earnest is the longtime owner of Earnest Mail Consulting Corp. and IOTA past president. He is also one of the organizations charter members. We started back in he said. Walt Connors called a meeting at the old Cockadoodles with Ted Stauffer, myself, Judy (Van Dermark). I was president for four years then. Tuesdays breakfast meeting at Beef O Bradys in Inverness began with Earnest and IOTA outgoing president Bill Cato presenting a check for $300 to Billie Lombardo, volunteer outreach coordinator for Citrus County Animal Services. The money came from the proceeds from the recent IOTA K-9 Karnival. Thats our main event of the year, Earnest said. He went on to say that IOTA is looking at a few changes coming up, such as a name change and a role change. The name change is the biggest thing, he said. Were planning to keep IOTA as initials, because were so well known. So, for a while well be known as IOTA doing business as Inverness Business Leaders, but thats still in the works. Our role is also changing. In the past, IOTA has sponsored downtown Inverness events Music on the Square, July 3rd fireworks, craft shows and car shows, Octoberfests and safe Halloween trick-ortreating with downtown merchants. Earnest said the city of Inverness has progressively taken the lead in the planning of events, especially since Sharon Skeele-Hogan was hired as fulltime events director. Theyve got the budget and big-dollar sponsors and backing, something weve always had a hard time getting, he said. Our objective, our role now, is to work with them on events where they need our help. Our main focus is to concentrate on promoting local businesses and working together to keep everything local, he said. Outgoing president Bill Cato said, With the city in a position to bring in big-money events, IOTA members have the opportunity to help steer the direction of what you think this organization can do and where you want it to go to try to help small and large businesses here in the greater Inverness area. For more information about IOTA, find it on Facebook by searching for Inverness Olde Towne Association. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicleonline. com. Association changing focus Greater Inverness area organization has a new president, a new name PATFAHERTY Staff writerResults of the Citrus County Sports Athletic Complex Feasibility Study are scheduled to be released next month. Cathy Pearson, assistant county administrator, informed the Tourist Development Council at its December meeting that the study is about 65 percent complete and will be presented in January. The study is by C.H. Johnson Consulting of Chicago. Pearson said the firm had completed market analysis and is in the survey stage. She said it has confirmed a significant shortage of indoor sports facilities and a need for larger facilities. The process has included schools, the College of Central Florida, Little League and the Citrus County Builders Association. When it was initiated, Pearson said the end result would provide a plan as to what the county should be focusing on, what assets it is missing or whether it is even ready for a sports facility. The study was to analyze available locations and facilities, including the future YMCA and the Flying Eagle Preserve. Proposals for the study were originally requested last May, coinciding with an effort to increase sports tourism. C.H. Johnson came in with a low bid of $41,500. The study was delayed when it had to be rebid, with the same results. A 2007 feasibility study for the proposed YMCA determined the county could support a 44,000square-foot facility with athletic fields, an indoor-heated pool and fitness center. While the current study has been in progress, sports tourism efforts have increased, largely through the efforts of the Park and Recreation Department and new interim tourism director Adam Thomas. Clearwater-based Sports Facility Advisory, which helps communities plan and manage new and existing sport facilities, said the growth of sports tourism and the related potential financial impact can provide the opportunity to participate in an economic boom. Sport tourism benefits host cities by providing economic benefits as a result of sales in hotel fees, food and beverages, admission fees for tournaments, use of transports and other spending at the facilities, said Dev Pathik, company founder and chief executive officer in a news release. The end result being that different types of income are generated for the community, providing for an increase in spending, jobs and conservation of the local environment.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com.

The Rock Hall announced Tuesday that DarylHall and JohnOates, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens also will be inducted April 10 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Artists are eligible for induction 25 years after their first release. Nirvana received a nomination in its first year of eligibility and next year the band will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its debut, Bleach. The induction comes 20 years after frontman Kurt Cobain committed suicide at age 27. For once ... Im speechless. From the basements, to the dingy clubs, to the broken down vans, to ... the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, now the frontman for Foo Fighters, said in a statement Tuesday. Id like to thank the committee not only for this induction, but also for recognizing Nirvana for what we were: pure rock and roll. Thank you most of all to Kurt Cobain, bassist Krist Novoselic said in the statement issued on behalf of Nirvana. And to everyone whos kept rock music going strong for 60 years and counting. Peter Criss Kiss original drummer and vocalist, said the band changed rock forever by raising the bar for live performances. We were four guys from New York City who brought Barnum & Bailey into rock and roll, he told The Associated Press. Criss last toured with the band in 2003 and hopes to be asked to perform with the other three founding members at the induction ceremony at New Yorks Barclays Center. Also at the ceremony, The Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham and the late Beatles manager Brian Epstein, will receive Ahmet Ertegun awards, a non-performing honor. And Bruce Springsteens E Street Band will get the award for musical excellence. N.W.A., one of the 16 nominees announced in October, did not make the cut. The iconic rap group includes Dr. Dre, who has launched successful solo albums and is the producer behind Eminem, 50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar More than 700 Rock Hall voters determined the 2014 class. The 29th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be open to the public. Tickets go on sale next month. The event will air on HBO.NBC plans miniseries sequel to The BibleNEW YORK NBC is bringing viewers more of the Good Book. The network says it will film the 12-hour miniseries A.D. as a follow-up to the miniseries The Bible that aired on the History channel earlier this year from producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. The network says A.D. is projected to air on NBC in spring 2015. No cast has been announced. The Bible was an unexpected hit on History, premiering last March to an audience of 13.1 million viewers. From wire reports Associated PressActress and animal activist Pamela Anderson, center, and Sam Simon, producer of The Simpsons, left, attempt Tuesday to deliver a letter and a million-dollar check to end the annual commercial seal hunt to the closed office of the Canadian Sealers Association in St. Johns, Newfoundland.

who wants to buy real property or personal property from the county can look at it and know exactly what the procedures are, Parsons said. Parsons also clarified that she was not looking for instruction about the actual sale of the jail at this point. Im just looking to bring back to you all what the pros and cons of selling the detention facility would be, Parsons said. Commissioner Scott Adams lost no time in putting forth his position that he did not want to sell the jail. They have lost every county except us, Adams said about CCA. Theres a reason Hernando County took their jail back. Theres a reason Bay County theres a few things you dont sell. Id hate to take this money and spend it on something it shouldnt be when this is an asset that typically a community needs and with CCA losing all their other contracts. I believe, if Im not mistaken, were the only county left in the state of Florida. Parsons replied that was why she was requesting to research what the pros and cons of selling the jail to anyone would be. Adams continued, In my opinion, it would be insane to sell our jail. In fact, when we look at the numbers, it would probably be more profitable for the sheriff to take it back over because they are making profit with the federal money coming in. Its actually something that subsidizes the county jail, where it wouldnt cost the county taxpayers. Parsons said that would be part of her research. First, she asked for a mechanism to sell any of the properties, and second to weigh the pros and cons of selling the jail. Thorpe said he told CCA not to make an offer because the county did not have a mechanism to fairly judge it. Parsons said an ordinance would establish a competitive process. Adams was concerned that the mechanism would give CCA the ability to make an offer, but Parsons said the ordinance would be limited to the competitive process. You can always say no, Thorpe responded. Adams said he could not support the ordinance with the jail tied to it. Commissioner Joe Meek then broke the proposed motion into two parts. Commissioner Dennis Damato explained what he knew about CCAs relationship with Hernando County. The problem really wasnt as much with CCA as it was with the contract monitoring of CCA, Damato said. The person who was monitoring that did not do a good job and they wound up with a problem costing them millions of dollars. Citrus County has had an excellent experience with CCA, Damato said. Damato suggested looking at county-owned real estate as a broad-scope issue, with economic impacts to the county of each sale. The use of the proceeds also would have to be determined within the ordinance, Damato said. Could the proceeds be cash only or land swaps and cash, would the county hold the mortgage or would the replacement of buildings be involved? Damato suggested that proceeds be used for capital improvements and structured projects of more than $50,000 that have a full public benefit. I dont think I would ever vote for selling a property and putting that money into the general fund, Damato said. Commissioners voted unanimously for Parsons to bring back a proposed ordinance, but the motion to consider the advantages and disadvantages of selling the jail passed by 4-1, with Adams voting no. The public hearing for the five-year capital improvement schedule was postponed to a later meeting. The board agreed to set a public workshop about the County Road 491 Corridor Project at 5:01 p.m. Jan. 14 to cover discussions about the Comprehensive Plan, the project alignment, the map presentation, the current capital improvement plan including cost estimates and funding, the project timeline and the economic benefits.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER18, 2013 A5 000GXPK 9301 W.

Camping was a retired civil engineer who first predicted the Rapture would happen in September 1994. When Judgment Day didnt come to pass, he blamed it on a mathematical error. After his second failed prediction in May 2011, the preacher again revised his prophecy, saying he had been off by five months. Camping said he felt so terrible after the cataclysmic event didnt occur in October 2011 either that he took refuge in a motel.

Swimmer wins first place, gives trophy to rivalJUPITER One of Floridas best young swimmers earned a first-place trophy at a recent meet and gave it to his rival. Joshua Zuchowski competed Dec. 7 with the Jupiter Dragons at the Santa Claus & Holiday Spring Invitational in West Palm Beach. The 9-year-old boy won first place, but he gave the trophy to his friend and rival, 10-yearold Reese Branzell, who swims with the Lake Lytal Lightning. Reese is another top swimmer in the state, but has been ill with a bone infection for weeks and could not compete in the meet. Reese told WPBF-TV that hours after the meet, Josh sent him his trophy with a note reading: I won this trophy for you today, and I hope to see you back in the pool. I miss Josh and I miss all the friends on my team, said Reese. Being at the hospital was very hard. I feel like Im missing out on a lot of stuff, and I wish everything could go away and I could get back in the pool. Josh said no one made him give his trophy to Reese. Its because I felt bad for him, Josh said. I talked about it with my parents, and theyre teaching me to be a good sport. So Im just trying to do what they taught me.Man ticketed for trying to trade gator for beerMIAMI Florida wildlife officials said a man tried to trade a live alligator for beer at a Miami convenience store. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino said the man received a citation for illegally capturing and trying to sell the gator. Pino told WTVJ-TV that the man trapped the 4-footlong gator at a nearby park and brought it to the store. When he proposed to trade the animal for a 12-pack of beer, the store clerk called authorities.NASA orders urgent spacewalk repairs at stationCAPE CANAVERAL NASA has ordered up a series of urgent spacewalks to fix a broken cooling line at the International Space Station. Station managers decided Tuesday to send two American astronauts out as soon as possible to replace a pump that contains a bad valve. Its a big job that will require at least two or three spacewalks. The first is scheduled for Saturday. The spacewalks are taking priority over the launch of a supply ship from Virginia. The delivery had been scheduled for this week, but is now delayed until January. Half of the stations cooling system shut down last week. The six-man crew had to turn off nonessential equipment, including science experiments. While the astronauts are safe, NASA wants the system back up to full strength, in case of another failure.Deputies: Jealous man shot at co-workers carDEERFIELD BEACH A Florida Walmart employee faces charges after officials say he shot a co-workers car window because she won an employee-of-themonth award. Sonia Diogene told Broward Sheriffs deputies that Willie Mitchell became angry after she received the award and started harassing her, saying he had helped her numerous times and that he deserved the recognition. As the two argued about their workload, Mitchell grew angry. Diogene told her supervisor that she felt threatened by Mitchell after he repeatedly said, Im gonna show you, according to an arrest report. Witnesses told authorities they tried to calm Mitchell down during the argument. A Dec. 1 surveillance video showed Mitchell pulling alongside Diogenes car, shooting out a window and driving away. Diogene was not in the car at the time but told investigators she found the damage when she went out to her car on her lunch break. It definitely seems unusual for someone to be upset to the point that they would fire a shot into someone elses vehicle just because this person received an award, sheriffs spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion said. He felt obviously that it was unjust for her to receive this award. Mitchell is charged with discharging a firearm from a vehicle. Jail records did not show whether he had an attorney.School named for Klan leader to be changedJACKSONVILLE Students at a Florida high school named after an honorary Ku Klux Klan leader said they are happy that their school will soon be renamed. Students at Nathan B. Forrest High School in Jacksonville said its high time for the Confederate generals name at the majority black school to be removed. That will happen next year after a new name is selected. School Superintendent Nikolai Vitti said students voted overwhelmingly in a survey to rename the school because of Forrests history as a slave trader and historical reports of his order to kill 300 captured black Union soldiers. The Duval County School Board voted 7-0 on Monday to change the name. From wire reports Death ELSEWHERE From wire reports State BRIEFS

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Floridians are paying the highest homeowner insurance rates in the nation even though the state has not been hit by a hurricane in nearly a decade. A national report released this week shows the average premium for most Florida homeowners is $1,933 a year, or nearly twice the national average of $978. Five of the six states with the highest rates are along the Gulf of Mexico. The report by The National Association of Insurance Commissioners is based on 2011 rates and includes for the first time premiums paid by customers of Citizens Property Insurance. The state-created Citizens is the largest insurer in the state with more than 1 million policyholders. Floridas insurance rates have been steadily going up for the last several years even though the state has not been hit by a hurricane since 2005. State regulators have continued to approve rate increases this year, although there are signs rates may finally be stabilizing. Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, who has complained that insurance rates in the state should be coming down, said hes not surprised by Floridas top ranking. Atwater has asked Floridas top insurance regulator to give a detailed report about why most insurers in the state are not lowering their rates since reinsurance costs one of the biggest expenses for companies has been declining. Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty was supposed to deliver the report this week, but has asked to delay presenting his findings until midJanuary. I think people need to be informing the industry that we are watching and we have high expectations that the people of the state of Florida will begin to benefit from cost savings, Atwater said Tuesday. Louisiana had the second-highest rates, followed by Texas, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Alabama. The report breaks out homeowners insurance by various types of policies, but found the average premium of $1,933 for the main kind of multiperil homeowner policy that is the most commonly purchased in Florida. That same report found that the average premium for insurance purchased by condominium owners in Florida was $804 or nearly twice the national average. The report also lists the 10 costliest catastrophes in U.S. history, which include five hurricanes that struck Florida Andrew, Charley, Wilma, Ivan and Hurricane Katrina. Katrina hit Florida before it slammed into Louisiana and Mississippi and was the most expensive catastrophe. Some in the industry have contended that there are legitimate reasons for the current rates in Florida. Joseph Petrelli, president of the ratings agency Demotech, wrote Atwater last month and said some insurers have purchased more reinsurance protection as the cost has gone down. He also said that overall repair costs continue to mount. Associated PressCLEARWATER Two Tampa Bay-area legislators said Tuesday that they are proposing a bill to give Floridas homeowners relief from rising flood insurance premiums. State Sen. Jeff Brandes and Rep. Larry Ahern said during a news conference that the bill would allow private insurance companies to offer flood insurance policies to Florida homeowners. The Biggert-Waters Act, which was passed last year, removes federal subsidies from properties in flood zones. FEMA says the phase-out of subsidies will affect fewer than 20 percent of flood policyholders nationwide but many of those policies are in Florida, state officials said. Florida, and Pinellas County in particular, are heavily affected by the rate hikes because theres a significant number of homeowners living in homes located in low-lying areas. About 1.1 million homeowners nationwide or 1 in 5 in the program have received taxpayersubsidized rates and the government has financed about 60 percent of losses on their properties. Most people can retain the subsidies but cant pass them along to people buying their home, a restriction thats especially burdensome to lower-income older homeowners seeking to sell their houses. Many mortgages written in Florida require flood insurance. Congress has turned the American dream into a nightmare, said Brandes. Tuesdays news conference was held at the Pinellas County Association of Realtors, a group that is concerned about the rate hikes because subsidized policy benefits extended to current homeowners cant be passed along to prospective buyers. Weve lost numerous sales, said real estate agent Shirley Madden of Treasure Island. Its affected everyone. And its not just residential home sales, Madden added. Her company was going to buy a new building in the Gulf front beach community, but backed out of a deal because the flood insurance rate would have been too expensive. The Tampa Bay area, Miami-Dade and Lee counties are all uniquely affected by the flood insurance rate increases because of the number of subsidized plans in those areas. Horror stories of flood insurance rate hikes have dominated Tampa Bayarea media. The Tampa Bay Timesrecently reported on a Pinellas County couple who bought a home last July for $628,000. The couple was under the impression that their flood insurance bill would be about $4,300 annually, but because they bought the home after the Biggert-Waters act was passed, the insurance subsidy was not grandfathered in. The couples flood insurance premium stands to increase 900 percent, to $44,000 a year, the paper reported. Brandes cited this case during the news conference, and said that allowing private insurers to offer flood policies to Floridians will relieve the nightmare that has become the federal flood insurance program. Brandes and Ahern said that the bill, if passed, will make it easier for private insurance companies to begin writing flood insurance policies in Florida.STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER18, 2013 A7 000GWQB NEW OFFICE LOCATION Announces the NEW OFFICE LOCATION NEW OFFICE LOCATION of his new practice Call 228-4975 Comprehensive foot and ankle care for the entire family.

as part of the food chain and ecosystem. They provide fishing grounds, wave protection, oxygen production and protection against erosion, as well as holding 15 percent of the oceans carbon storage. Seagrass is preferable to muck in freshwater areas. One of the largest seagrass beds in the nation, second only to Florida Bay, lies just off the countys coast in the Gulf of Mexico. We estimate we have about as much as 400,000 mat acres of seagrass out there, so its a huge resource both for commercial fisheries and also recreational fisheries, said Chris Anastasiou, chief environmental scientist with the Southwest Florida Water Management District, speaking last week to the Chronicles editorial board. Any of you who enjoy scallops know that its really important for that as well. While fighting algae blooms from nitrate and phosphorus loading in freshwater areas, the district plans to replenish Vallisneria eelgrass, starting with a project in Hunter Springs. Were working with Duke Energy right now at the mariculture center, which is where they traditionally grow fish, Anastasiou said. They have partnered with us and are letting us basically use their facilities to grow the grass. Last week, we just started what we would call a sea bank experiment. The water district observed the conditions after the Kings Bay Rotary Club led by Art Jones started its One Rake at a Time project in 2011 to scoop out manually a slimy material called Lyngbya that stifles aquatic ecosystems with dense, floating mats. The question that we were asking is: When you remove that algal layer, what comes back? Is there anything in the sediment that brings back vegetation? Anastasiou asked. What weve seen based on some of the work that the Rotary did last March where they removed some of the algae to the left of the swim area were actually starting to see some re-growth of some good vegetation. The result gave the water district hope of good sea bank underneath the sediment, allowing new growth of eelgrass without having to start from scratch. The hope is that were going to see vegetation come back on its own, Anastasiou said. What we will do is augment that with that Vallisneria eelgrass, the good stuff. Anastasiou will get the good stuff from Lyn Gettys, assistant professor of agronomy and aquatic and wetland plants with the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. She calls her eelgrass variety Rock Star, because it will grow anywhere. Gettys developed a technique to grow Vallisneria eelgrass using coconut coir material. If youve ever seen ditches dug on the side of the road, they use this dark material to kind of help erosion to grow grass to keep the banks stable, Anastasiou explained. Gettys is using the same material to grow these aquatic grasses, so were working with her to implement the same technique in Hunter Springs. The water district is confident that the project will replace the bad stuff with the good stuff as part of the program to restore the health of Kings Bay. We have a really good shot at getting these grasses established because weve been doing work for the last 10 to 15 years in Kings Bay on different techniques and the state of the science has advanced tremendously, Anastasiou said. Technology has advanced and just our knowledge base of what works and what doesnt. The new year will see the beginning of the project. This January is when weve got scheduled to get our first flush of plants from the Fort Lauderdale center, Anastasiou said. Well be transplanting them in the pond at Duke Energy. Ultimately, what we intend to do is have a facility there that will be growing grass perpetually. It will be available for not just us but for others to use. So if the Rotary has a project or the city has a project, we want to have that grass to be a one-stop shop for them. When it was pointed out that the water district would bring a new salad bar to the manatee herd that hundreds of sea cows would munch out on the good stuff Anastasiou had the answer. In the short term, weve had a company build us these cages: round, 3-foot diameter, stainless cages that stand about 28 inches, Anastasiou said. You basically put that on top of the mat, on top of the sod, because thats what you are essentially doing planting the sod. The round cages would be weighted down with sandbags along the perimeter to prevent manatees from pushing them over. That part would be a trial-and-error program. This is a pilot project because the method has never been used before, Anastasiou said. We dont want to go at it like gangbusters and find out we should have done something different, so were going to try it out this spring with these cages. If results are good with the cages, the project may move on to techniques used by cattle ranchers with land-based bovine herds. If we see good results, ultimately what wed like to do is fence areas contingent on permitting, Anastasiou said. The concept is to manage the herd by allowing these grasses to lay fallow. If you are familiar with how cattle ranchers operate, they move the herd around to let the grasses lay fallow. We think that might be a viable managing approach to get these grasses re-established.A8WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER18, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL www.smcflorida.com Other Services Include: Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Carpet Protector Pet Odor Removal Spot Removal Deep Soil Extraction Drapery Cleaning Oriental Rugs EMERGENCY SERVICE 24/7/365 Our Holiday Gift For You. 000GOT1 The CLEAN you expect, The SERVICE you deserve.

The stock market edged slightly lower as the Federal Reserve started a two-day policy meeting that may herald the beginning of the end for its economic stimulus. Few expect that the Fed will announce that it plans to pare back, or taper, its huge bond-buying program after its meeting wraps up on Wednesday. However, good news on the U.S. economy this month, including a blockbuster jobs report, and a budget deal in Washington appeared to have increased the likelihood of a change. Its just the taper drama, thats really all the market seems focused on, said Dean Junkans, CIO for Wells Fargo Private Bank. The chances of them doing something tomorrow are higher than they were a month ago. Major stock indices fell, but just slightly. The Standard & Poors 500 index eased five points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,781. The Dow Jones industrial average crept down nine points, or 0.1 percent, to 15,875.26. The Nasdaq composite edged lower by five points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,023. 68. Eight of the ten industrial groups in the S&P 500 declined, led by phone companies. Materials stocks and technology companies edged higher. A couple of big companies bucked the downward trend after pledging to hand more cash to stock holders. Boeing rose $1.16, or 1 percent, to $135.88 after the plane maker increased its stock buyback program by $10 billion and raised its dividend 52 percent. 3M climbed $3.73, or 3 percent, to $131.39 after raising its dividend by 35 percent. The company also forecast solid earnings next year. Stocks have surged this year as the Fed kept buying $85 billion in bonds every month to hold down long-term interest rates. As well as boosting the economy, that stimulus has made stocks a more attractive investment compared to bonds. The only setbacks for the market this year have come when investors were nervous that the Fed was about to cut back its stimulus. The S&P 500 index dropped 1.5 percent in June when Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke outlined a potential exit for the Fed from its stimulus strategy. The index fell 3.1 percent in August when investors thought that the policy would change in September. Instead of worrying about the markets immediate reaction to the Feds announcement on Wednesday, investors should focus on the positive backdrop for stocks, said Liz Ann Sonders, chief investment strategist at Charles Schwab. The economy is improving, companies are investing more, and earnings are forecast to grow at a steady rate, ensuring there will be demand for stocks. Dips that we get are not going to be terribly severe, Sonders said. Googles top searches peer into societys mindset Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Death, devices and celebrity drove the quest for more information on Googles search engine this year. Three of the worlds four fastest-rising search requests on Google were triggered by the deaths of famous men. Former South African President Nelson Mandela, who died earlier this month, occupied the top spot, followed by Fast & Furious movie star Paul Walker, who died in a Nov. 30 car crash. Glee TV series cast member Cory Monteith, who died of a drug overdose in July, ranked fourth in an annual retrospective released Tuesday. The iPhone 5S, the latest upgrade in Apples most popular product line, finished third in Googles rankings. The Top 10 was rounded out by the Harlem Shake, a song that inspired a procession of amusing dance videos, at No. 5; royal baby Prince George, the heir to Englands throne, at No. 7; and North Korea, whose saber-rattling has become a source of international tension, at No. 10.

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 Excuse for gas price hike unbelievableA Chroniclearticle of Nov. 26, reported that the spike in gas prices from $3.15 to $3.49 an increase of 11 percent was the result of production problems at four refineries. Who in the world would believe that? Not one, but four refineries, with problems at the same time during one of the busiest travel days of the year! Even if you were to accept that excuse, why would that cause gas prices to rise? It could cause a shortage of gas, but an increase in prices, what is the reasoning there? There apparently is an oil industry rule that says, if demand increases prices rise, if demand decreases prices rise, and now if refineries have problems, prices rise. When I was in school, the rule was the greater the volume (demand), the lower the cost. Whats changed? Last night, ABC news reported that Florida has the highest average gas price on the East Coast. Good going Florida! As a senior citizen, for the better part of my life diesel fuel was cheaper than gasoline and in recent years diesel is sold at a significant premium (as much as 70 cents more per gallon at times) even though it is cheaper to refine and is used by almost the entire trucking industry. When is enough enough? Ken Yates Homosassa Are we acting Christ-like?This holiday season wouldnt it be lovely if we didnt have to listen to some people vent anger at others just because they say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas? Ive seen many a store clerk reprimanded by some arrogant customer because Merry Christmas wasnt said. I would think if you profess to be a good Christian, you would remember that this is the time for peace, love and good will. Several years ago bracelets with WWJD were the big thing and so I suggest (notice I said suggest, not command) that those people who think they have the right to berate others should ask themselves if their behavior qualifies as Christ-like.Evlyn Skurow Crystal River WASHINGTONThe education of Barack Obama is a protracted process as he repeatedly alights upon the obvious with a sense of original discovery. In a recent MSNBC interview, he restocked his pantry of excuses for his disappointing results, announcing that we have these big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly: Weve got, for example, 16 different agencies that have some responsibility to help businesses, large and small, in all kinds of ways, whether its helping to finance them, helping them to export. ... So, weve proposed, lets consolidate a bunch of that stuff. The challenge weve got is that that requires a law to pass. And, frankly, there are a lot of members of Congress who are chairmen of a particular committee. And they dont want necessarily consolidations where they would lose jurisdiction over certain aspects of certain policies. The dawn is coming up like thunder as Obama notices the sociology of government. He shows no sign, however, of drawing appropriate lessons from it. Big government is indeed big, and like another big creature, the sauropod dinosaur, government has a primitive nervous system: Injured in the tail, that fact could take nearly a minute to be communicated to the sauropod brain. Obama, of whose vast erudition we have been assured, seems unfamiliar with Mancur Olsons seminal The Rise and Decline of Nations, which explains how free societies become sclerotic. Their governments become encrusted with interest groups that preserve, like a fly in amber, an increasingly stultifying status quo. This impedes dynamism by protecting arrangements that have worked well for those powerful enough to put the arrangements in place. This blocks upward mobility for those less wired to power. Obama, startled that components of government behave as interest groups, seems utterly unfamiliar with public choice theory. It demystifies and deromanticizes politics by applying economic analysis how incentives influence behavior to government. It shows how elected officials and bureaucrats pursue personal aggrandizement as much as people do in the private sector. In the public sectors profit motive, profit is measured by power rather than money. Obamas tardy epiphanies do not temper his enthusiasm for giving sauropod government ever-deeper penetration into society. He thinks this serves equality. Actually, big government inevitably drives an upward distribution of wealth to those whose wealth, confidence and sophistication enable them to manipulate government. The day before Obama shared with MSNBC his conclusion that big government defends its irrationalities but is insufficiently big, his speech du jour deplored todays increasing inequality and distrust of government. He seems oblivious to the mutual causations at work. Of course Americans distrust one another more as more and more factions fight one another for preferential treatment by government. Of course government becomes drained of dignity, and becomes corrosive of social cohesion, as it becomes a bigger dispenser of inequality through benefits to those sufficiently clever and connected to work its levers. Obama correctly says that not only do we tend to trust our institutions less, we also tend to trust each other less. Of course there are parallel increases in distrust: Governments dignity diminishes as government grows to serve factions of those sophisticated at manipulating its allocation of preferences. Social solidarity is a casualty of government grown big because it recognizes no limits to its dispensing of favors. Obamas speech denounced trickle-down ideology and deplored growth that has flowed to a fortunate few. But the monetary policy he favors very low interest rates, driving money into equities in search of higher yields is a powerful engine of inequality. Since the Dow closed at 7,949 on Inauguration Day 2009, it has doubled, benefiting the 10 percent who hold 80 percent of directly owned stocks. The hope is that some of this wealth will trickle down. Suppose there were not 16 government agencies to help businesses, large and small, in all kinds of ways. Suppose there were none. Such barnacles on big government institutionalize the scramble for government favors; these agencies are a standing incitement to bend public power for private advantage. Hence they increase distrust of government, diminish social solidarity and aggravate the most indefensible inequality that driven by government dispensations. Obamas solution to the problem of the 16 is to consolidate them, replacing 16 small subtractions from good governance with one big one. Progressives consider this progress.

Rick Scotts hand-picked Secretary of State Ken Detzner announced recently that completed absentee ballots could no longer be dropped off at early vote sites. It sounds like a solution in search of a problem and this wouldnt be the first time. Remember the voter purge Scott initiated just prior to the 2012 elections and the shortened early vote periods both ostensibly to combat voter fraud, but both primarily successful in making it more difficult for eligible voters to cast their ballots. There was immediate, negative reaction to Detzners pronouncement. The Pinellas County supervisor of elections, deep in preparations for a January special election, told Detzner she would not follow his directive. A dtente of sorts was reached for the January election, with Detzner noting her security measures at staffed drop-off and early vote sites and acknowledging he would not pursue legal action at this time. Elections officials in other Florida counties have also expressed dissatisfaction. Citrus County Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill told a reporter, From a practical standpoint, the voters have been dropping off their voted ballots at early vote sites and drop boxes for years. Voters will not be happy with the change that causes them the inconvenience. Although Gill noted theres been a tremendous amount of push-back on it she said shes in a wait and see mode. Apparently she and colleagues statewide are hoping that the ruling will be rolled back during the 2014 legislative session, ahead of next years elections. About 30 percent of Citrus Countys registered voters cast absentee ballots in the 2012 general election, a rate slightly higher than the states 28 percent. Many Citrus County voters with absentee ballots have shown theyd rather hand in the ballots at convenient early vote sites than drop them in the mail. Whether its the cost of a stamp or distrust of the mail system is immaterial. The point is that turning in absentee ballots at early vote sites which are governed by state election laws and staffed by trained, sworn employees must remain an option for voters. This should not be a wait and see issue. Voters and county elections officials statewide need to put some muscle behind the pushback to Gov. Scott, Secretary of State Detzner and legislators on this one.

Archbishop steps aside, denies touching minorMINNEAPOLIS The head of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis is stepping aside from public ministry after an allegation that he touched an underage male. Archbishop John Nienstedt denies the allegations, but is removing himself from ministry pending an investigation. The archdiocese said the incident allegedly occurred in 2009 after a confirmation ceremony. Nienstedt is accused of inappropriately touching an underage male on the buttocks during a group photography session. The archdiocese learned of the allegation last week and instructed the person who brought it forward to go to police. In a letter posted Tuesday on the archdiocese website, Nienstedt said the allegation is absolutely and entirely false. He said he hopes the investigation will be thorough and quick so he can return to work.Blind man, guide dog struck by NYC subwayNEW YORK A blind man who was hit by a New York City subway train said his guide dog tried to save him from falling on to the tracks when he lost consciousness. Cecil Williams told The Associated Press from his hospital bed that he was holding onto his black Labrador, Orlando, when he fainted Tuesday morning. They both tumbled down onto the tracks from the platform at 125th Street. The 61-year-old Williams said the next thing he remembers is someone telling him to be still. The motorman had slowed the subway cars so Williams and his dog were not badly injured. Both were taken to a hospital. Williams said the 10year-old dog saved his life. Police said the lab is a certified guide dog.Gunman kills himself, 1 other at Reno hospitalRENO, Nev. A gunman opened fire at a hospital campus in Reno on Tuesday, killing one person and wounding two others before turning the weapon on himself. The Nevada Department of Public Safety said the wounded victims were in surgery and one of them is a doctor. Police initially said the gunman shot four people before killing himself, but they later said he wounded two people and killed another before committing suicide. Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Gail Powell said the wounded doctor is a woman but she had no more information about the identity of the victims or the gunman.

Casualties overwhelm hospitalsBEIRUT Hospitals in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo are overwhelmed with casualties, an international aid group warned Tuesday, as government warplanes blasted opposition areas of the city as part of a withering three-day air assault that has killed more than 100 people. The intensified air campaign, which one activist group in the city called unprecedented, suggests President Bashar Assads government is trying to crush opposition in the contested city, Syrias largest, ahead of an international peace conference scheduled for late January in Switzerland. Tuesday marked the third consecutive day that Aleppo has been hit by deadly government airstrikes.Indian official: Diplomats arrest in NYC barbaricNEW DELHI The arrest and alleged strip search of an Indian diplomat in New York City escalated into a major diplomatic furor Tuesday as Indias national security adviser called the womans treatment despicable and barbaric. Devyani Khobragade, Indias deputy consul general in New York, is accused of submitting false documents to obtain a work visa for her Manhattan housekeeper. Indian officials said she was arrested and handcuffed Thursday as she dropped off her daughter at school, and was kept in a cell with drug addicts before posting $250,000 bail. A senior Indian official confirmed reports that she also was strip-searched, which has been portrayed in India as the most offensive and troubling part of the arrest. Her U.S. attorney said he didnt know if she was stripsearched. Federal authorities said they were looking into the arrest.Libya: Well allow quizzing of Lockerbie suspectLONDON Libyan Justice Minister Salah Margani said his government will allow U.S. and British investigators to question Abdullah al-Senoussi, Gadhafis notorious spymaster, over the Lockerbie bombing. The former intelligence chief is accused of complicity in the 1988 bombing of a Pan Am airliner over Lockerbie, Scotland, in which 270 people died. Libyan intelligence officer Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, who died last year, is the only person convicted in the attack, but many questions surrounding the bombing, who ordered it, and how it was carried out remain unanswered. If Libya were responsible for the atrocity, al-Senoussi could be a critical source of information. Margani told Britains ITV News on Tuesday that it was the intention to allow investigators to question al-Senoussi. World BRIEFS From wire reports Snowden seeks asylum in Brazil Says NSAs indiscriminate spying collapsing Associated PressRIO DE JANEIRO National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden wrote in a lengthy open letter to the people of Brazil that hes been inspired by the global debate ignited by his release of thousands of NSA documents and that the agencys culture of indiscriminate global espionage is collapsing. In the letter, Snowden commended the Brazilian government for its strong stand against U.S. spying. He wrote that hed be willing to help the South American nation investigate NSA spying on its soil, but could not fully participate in doing so without being granted political asylum, because the U.S. government will continue to interfere with my ability to speak. Revelations about the NSAs spy programs were first published in theGuardianand The Washington Postnewspapers in June, based on some of the thousands of documents Snowden handed over to Barton Gellman at thePostand to Brazilbased American journalist Glenn Greenwald and his reporting partner, Laura Poitras, a U.S. filmmaker. The documents revealed Brazil is the top NSA target in Latin America, with spying that has included the monitoring of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseffs cellphone and hacking into the internal network of state-run oil company Petrobras. The revelations enraged Rousseff, who in October canceled an official visit to Washington that was to include a state dinner. Shes also pushing the United Nations to give citizens more protections against spying. In his letter, Snowden dismissed U.S. explanations to the Brazilian government and others that the bulk of metadata gathered on billions of emails and calls was more data collection than surveillance. There is a huge difference between legal programs, legitimate spying ... and these programs of dragnet mass surveillance that put entire populations under an all-seeing eye and save copies forever, he wrote. These programs were never about terrorism: theyre about economic spying, social control, and diplomatic manipulation. Theyre about power. Brazilian senators have asked for Snowdens help during hearings about the NSAs targeting of Brazil, an important transit hub for trans-Atlantic fiber optic cables that are hacked. Both Greenwald and his domestic partner, David Miranda, spoke before the Senate, and Miranda has taken up the cause of persuading the Brazilian government to grant political asylum to Snowden. Miranda said he received Snowdens letter directly from the former NSA analyst via secure means. Snowden lives in Russia on a temporary one-year visa. Edward Snowden Russia to buy $15B in Ukraine bonds Associated PressMOSCOW Russian President Vladimir Putin upped the stakes Tuesday in the battle over Ukraines future, saying Moscow will buy $15 billion worth of Ukrainian government bonds and sharply cut the price of natural gas heading to its economically struggling neighbor. The announcements came after Putin held talks in Moscow with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who is facing massive protests at home for his decision to shelve a pact with the European Union in favor of closer ties with Moscow. Economic experts say Ukraine desperately needs to get at least $10 billion in the coming months to avoid bankruptcy. While Putin sought to calm the protesters in Kiev by saying that he and Yanukovych didnt discuss the prospect of Ukraine joining the Russiandominated Customs Union, the sweeping Kremlin agreements are likely to fuel the anger of demonstrators who want Ukraine to break from Russias orbit and integrate with the 28-nation EU. Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said after the Kremlin talks that Russia would purchase $15 billion in Ukraines Eurobonds starting this month. Putin emphasized that Russias decision to buy the Ukrainian bonds wasnt contingent on that government freezing any social payments to its citizens a clear jab at the International Monetary Fund, which has pushed Ukraine to reduce spending as a condition for providing a bailout loan. Putin said the Russian state-controlled gas monopoly, Gazprom, will cut the price that Ukraine must pay for Russian gas deliveries to $268 per 1,000 cubic meters from the current level of about $400 per 1,000 cubic meters. Associated PressSenate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada takes a break Tuesday from the Senate floor on Capitol Hill in Washington after a bipartisan budget compromise cleared a procedural hurdle, advancing past a filibuster threshold on a 67-33 vote that ensures the measure will pass the Democratic-led chamber no later than today and head to the White House to be signed into law. Year-end agreement: Budget heads to final passage Associated PressWASHINGTON Year-end legislation to ease Congress chronic budget brinkmanship and soften across-the-board spending cuts moved to the cusp of final passage Tuesday, a rare display of Senate bipartisanship that masked strong Republican complaints about slicing into military retirement benefits. The measure is expected to clear the Senate and go to President Barack Obama for his signature today, marking a modest accomplishment at the end of a year punctuated by a partial government shutdown, a neardefault by the U.S. Treasury and congressional gridlock on issues ranging from immigration to gun control. This bipartisan bill takes the first steps toward rebuilding our broken budget process. And, hopefully, toward rebuilding our broken Congress, said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., who negotiated the compromise with Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis. The first major test of that is likely to come in February, when Congress faces a vote to raise the governments debt limit. Tuesdays vote to send the measure toward final approval was 67-33. But even as it was advancing, Republicans vowed that the requirement for curtailing the growth in cost-of-living benefits for military retirees under age 62 wouldnt long survive. The Democratic chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, has said the panel will review the change, estimated to trim some $6.3 billion in benefits, early next year. This provision is absolutely wrong; it singles out our military retirees, protested Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., at a news conference shortly before the vote. By late afternoon, the bipartisanship had faded as Republicans ratcheted up their criticism and maneuvered for political gain. A proposal aimed at removing the retirement provision failed on a near party-line vote of 46-54. Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina, who faces a difficult challenge for reelection, was the only senator to switch sides. Rather than reaching for a socalled grand bargain to reduce long-term deficits, lawmakers decided to reduce across-the-board cuts already scheduled to take effect, restoring about $63 billion over two years. The legislation includes a projected $85 billion in savings elsewhere in the budget. Because spending would rise immediately but many of the savings would take place later in the decade, deficits would increase as a result of the measure for the current budget year and the two that follow. Over the 10-year period, the legislation measure shows a $23 billion cut in red ink a trifle compared with the governments overall debt of more than $17 trillion and rising.

Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley, Arizona running back KaDeem Carey and Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton were selected to the first team for the second straight season. The All-America teams were released Tuesday and selected by a panel of AP college football poll voters. Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston from Florida State added AllAmerican to his resume after a spectacular redshirt freshman season. Heisman finalists Andre Williams from Boston College and Northern Illinois Jordan Lynch also made the first team. Williams joins Carey in the backfield and Lynch, the dual-threat quarterback, was chosen as an all-purpose player. Carey, a junior, is second in the nation in rushing after leading last year, but said he thinks hes a better player now. I worked hard to improve my speed and strength in the offseason while keeping my speed, Carey said. I put on 10 pounds of weight and I think thats helped my durability. I also wanted to be a better blocker away from the ball. Blocking for our quarterback and our receivers is key to our system and its important that I do my part even when Im not carrying the ball. Mosley, a senior, was the leading tackler for a defense that ranked fifth in the country in yards allowed per game. Sutton, a senior, was named Pac-12 defensive player of the year for the second straight season. Winston, a landslide Heisman winner last week, is joined on the first team by three Florida State teammates center Bryan Stork, Roberto AguayoFlorida State placekicker.

From staff reports MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleJasmin Pryor of Citrus gets set to bench press 90 pounds in the 101-pound division Tuesday in Inverness against Citrus County rival Lecanto. Citrus claims seven of 10 classes in girls weightlifting win over Lecanto Associated PressMiami safety Michael Thomas, center, is cheered as he leaves the field Sunday after his Dolphins defeated the New England Patriots.Thomas intercepted a pass intended for New England Patriots wide receiver Austin Collie to clinch the 24-20 win. Improbable path to celebrity for Miami DB Associated PressDAVIE Among all of the Miami Dolphins, idle tackle Jonathan Martin knows the teams new celebrity safety the best, because they played together in college. So when Michael Thomas made a game-winning interception in his NFL debut and found himself mobbed by teammates who didnt even know his name, Martin was quick to send a congratulatory text message, coast to coast and Stanford alum to Stanford alum. That means a lot, Thomas said Tuesday. Jonathan was one of my best friends at Stanford. I looked up to Jon. Thomas said Martins still rooting for Miami, despite his allegations of daily harassment by teammates that prompted him to leave the team in October. The bullying scandal threatened to sabotage the season, but instead the Dolphins (8-6) have gone 5-2 since Martin went home to California, and theyll clinch a wild-card playoff berth if they win their final two games. Low on star power, the Dolphins are winning thanks to a broad cross-section of contributors, none more improbable than Thomas. Michael Thomas, the new superstar, coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday. Undrafted out of college, Thomas joined the Dolphins See CELEBRITY/ Page B3 LARRYBUGG CorrespondentINVERNESS When the crowd started screaming Tuesday at the Citrus HighLecanto High girls weightlifting meet in the Citrus High weight room, it didnt affect Anna Venero too much. The Citrus High School lifter just did a bench press of 155 pounds and a clean and jerk of 150 pounds for a 305-pound total, which won her the 183-pound class. Others around her got excited as the Canes won their 24th straight meet in a 53-37 victory over the Panthers. Venero did have a personal best in the clean and jerk but she had a best of a 165-pound bench press at an earlier meet. It wasnt my best, Venero said. This is like any other meet. They are our rivals. They have a lot of good people in the lower weights. Another Citrus lifter, Hannah Evans, won the 169-pound class with a 320-pound total. She had a bench of 165 pounds and a clean and jerk of 155 pounds. If Venero and Evans can hit 300 pounds or more at the sectional qualifier, both should be headed for the state meet. Lecantos Breanna Johnson was feeling more of the rivalry than Venero. Johnson won the 139-pound class with a 135-pound bench, a 130-pound clean and jerk and a 265-pound total. Its (the meet) still a big deal, Johnson said. It makes us get more motivated. Johnson had her personal best at the recent Disparti Invitational. She had a bench of 140 pounds, a clean and jerk of 130 pounds and a 270-pound total. Disparti showed me where I am in the state of Florida, Johnson said. It was my best effort. She placed third at the Disparti on Friday at River Ridge High School. Lecantos Andreanna Van Quelef had a personal best clean and jerk with a 125-pound effort in the Citrus-Lecanto meet. She won the 119-pound class with a 110-pound bench and a 235-pound total. Her sister, Summer, was second with 205 pounds. I am very, very happy, Lecanto High head coach Bob LeCours said. We won three weight classes. Cheyenne Atkins (101) tied for first but lost on weight. I am very happy with 139 down. We are shallow. We dont have a lot of depth. We have a lot of freshmen in the upper classes. Its a good way to end (2013). The Citrus coach was impressed with the Panther girls. Lecanto is doing much better, Citrus head coach Tia Nelson said. They have a good group of girls. They did quite well.Lecanto takes 12th at Disparti InvitationalOut of 18 teams, the Panthers took 12th at the meet at River Ridge High on Friday, Dec. 13. Charlotte won with 54 points and River Ridge was second. Johnson was third in her weight class and Andreanna Van Quelef was sixth in the 119pound class. She had a 105-pound bench press and a 125-pound clean and jerk for a 230-pound total. This meet was like a preview for the state meet, which is in February in Kissimmee.

Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan made the second team, along with offensive tackle Cameron Erving. The Seminoles had six players on the three teams, the most of any school. No. 2 Auburn, which plays Florida State on Jan. 6 in the BCS championship game in Pasadena, Calif., placed Heisman finalists Tre Mason on the second team at running back and offensive lineman Reese Dismukes and Gregory Robinson on the third team. Texas A&M Heisman finalist Johnny Manziel, last years Heisman winner and AllAmerican quarterback, made the second team. Alabamas AJ McCarron, another Heisman finalist, is the third-team quarterback for the second consecutive season. The first-team receivers are Oregon States Brandin Cooks, who leads the nation in yards receiving (139.2 per game), and Texas A&Ms Mike Evans, who is averaging 20.3 yards a catch. Texas Techs Jace Amaro is the first-team tight end. The senior leads all tight ends in catches (98) and yards (1,240). Joining Stork on the offensive line are Texas A&M tackle Jake Matthews and Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, as well as Baylor guard Cyril Richardson and Stanford guard David Yankey. Richardson and Yankey were second-team All-Americans last season. Mosley and Sutton are on the first-team defense with Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald, who won the Nagurski and Bednarik awards as the nations best defensive player and the Outland and Lombardi as the countrys best lineman. Missouris Michael Sam, the Southeastern Conference defensive player of the year, and Jackson Jeffcoat, the Big 12 defensive player of the year, are the defensive ends. UCLAs Anthony Barr and Ohio States Ryan Shazier round out the linebackers. Michigan States Darqueze Dennard, one of the leaders of the nations top-ranked defense, is the other cornerback with Joyner. The safeties are Mississippis Cody Prewitt and Washington States Deone Bucannon. Tom Hornsey of Memphis made the first team as the punter. Florida State helped the Atlantic Coast Conference put six players on the first team, to match the Pac-12 and SEC for the most from any conference. 1011.Jasmin Pryor (Cit) 85-90-175; 2.

Once in town, he worked with Miamis scout squad but didnt practice with the defense, and was expected to play only on special teams Sunday against the New England Patriots. But when cornerbacks Brent Grimes and Nolan Carroll left the game with injuries, nickel back Jimmy Wilson switched to corner, and Thomas found himself in the game at safety with four minutes left. He had to borrow gloves from receiver Mike Wallace. You try to give to the needy, Wallace said with a laugh. In the final minute, with Miami leading 24-20, Tom Brady tried to pull off the Patriots fourth consecutive comeback victory, and a completion gave them a first down at the Dolphins 19 with 27 seconds to go. Miami defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle consulted frantically with assistant coach Blue Adams, who had tutored Thomas, to find out what coverages the newcomer would be comfortable with. Blue is behind me in the press box and I kept asking him, Does he know this? What things can we do? Coyle said with a laugh. I started calling out things that I was thinking about, and Blue had a lot of confidence that Michael knew everything. He said, Oh, he can do that. Im like, Blue, he has only been here two days. But he goes, No, no, weve been over all of that. We got it. We got it. Hes smart. STORMContinued from Page B1 NOLESContinued from Page B1 CELEBRITYContinued from Page B1

LocalLEADERS The winter months are upon us and, as golfers, we experience a few noticeable changes that the weather brings to the golf course. The first noticeable change is the overseed to the golf course. Overseeding is the application of rye seed on the golf course in anticipation of cold weather. Why is there a need to overseed the Bermuda grass? Bermuda grass thrives in warm weather. Bermuda grass will go into a dormant stage when the temperature is 32 degrees and below. In its dormant stage, the grass appears brown in color and looks dry or dead. Golfers do not like the playing conditions when the Bermuda grass is dormant. Old-school superintendents mostly agree that dormant grass is actually ideal conditions for playing golf. But you and I like green growing grass hence the need to overseed. Overseeding can be an expensive endeavor as seed prices vary from year to year. Some courses overseed the rough, fairway, greens and tees. This is referred to as wall-towall. Most courses in our area overseed fairways, greens and tees. It is less expensive to not overseed the rough areas. And when the cold weather kicks in, the rough goes dormant and turns brown; it gives the course a contrasting look with green fairways surrounded by brown rough. Our winters in Citrus County vary from year to year, but we do get a number of cold wintry days when the nighttime temperature drops below freezing. A clear sky and little or no wind will create the frost crystals on the blades of grass and we experience a frost delay. On a busy winter day and the days are short a frost delay is a golf operators worst nightmare. Typically when there is frost, the day warms up and we shed layers of warm clothing by late morning. What does it mean to be in a frost delay? 7 Rivers Golf & Country Club superintendant Richard Herber states that when the turf is frozen, the blades of grass can be damaged when carts and maintenance equipment drive over it. Superintendents must first wait for the sun to rise and temperatures to rise above freezing. Once the sun is up and the temperature is up, he can turn the sprinklers on to help melt the ice crystals formed on the grass. Once this is done, he can get his equipment out without any damage. And this is why we have frost delays. Golf carts and footprints break the grass blade, which damages and can kill the grass. Next time the weatherman predicts cold temperatures, do not assume there will be a frost delay. Windy conditions or cloud cover will prohibit the moisture on the plant to accumulate. Watch out on those cold, clear windless nights. And dont be surprised when you arrive for your 11 a.m. tee time in your short sleeves and the temperature is moderate the course may be running behind a few minutes because of earlier frost delay.Marion Walker is the general manager at Seven Rivers Golf and Country Club in Crystal River. She can be reached at marion7rivers@ tampabay.rr.com. Marion WalkerMOVE WITH MARION Overseeding, frost delays are staples of winter golf Looking to 2014 Westwood ends a year of change Associated PressThis has been a season of big change for Lee Westwood, and his debut last week in the Shark Shootout was an example. He typically is on the other side of the world this time of the year, having won the Nedbank Challenge in South Africa in 2011 and 2012, and the Thailand Golf Championship two years ago. But this marks one year since Westwood moved his family from England to Florida to take it easy on the jet lag and allow for more practice in warm weather. He ended the year without a win anywhere in the world. Westwood, a two-time Order of Merit winner on the European Tour, attributed his results to change, though that entails more than location. He also began working with Sean Foley. He had a new caddie for most of the year until reuniting this month with Billy Foster. Asked what held him back this year, Westwood chalked it up to the lack of continuity. So many changes, really, he said as he headed into the final month of his season. Its impossible to quantify the effect that has. Starting with a new coach, changing tours, changing caddies the end of last year, all of it has an effect. He also said there were struggles with consistency in his swing. Westwood had a close call at Quail Hollow, and he had the lead going into the final round of the British Open, which was won by Phil Mickelson more than anyone lost it.Father & sonExcept for having the 54-hole lead and contending at the British Open, one of the best moments for Lee Westwood this year was playing with his father in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Graeme McDowell will experience that in February. McDowell and his father, Kenny, will be partners at Pebble Beach. Its the first time they have been there since 2010, when McDowell won the U.S. Open and his father said to him on the 18th green that Sunday, Youre something, kid. Asked for his favorite memory of his father, McDowell went back to his roots in Northern Ireland when he was too young to play the Dunluce course at Royal Portrush. Until youre 15 years old or have a 15-handicap, you play the Valley Course, he said. I remember sneaking out with my dad on a summers evening on the Dunluce course when I was not eligible to be out there, sneaking out there for a few holes one summer evening and feeling like I was literally at Augusta National. Those are special times. Associated PressGraeme McDowell and his father Kenny will be partners in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February.

EDUCATIONSection CWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Decorate your tree with your kids in mind. Kids are curious and will want to play with the ornaments on the tree, so you might as well prepare. Move the ornaments that are breakable or have metal hooks towards the top of the tree. That makes room at the bottom for the ones that are safer for young kids. Water the tree regularly. Natural trees look beautiful and smell great, but if theyre not watered regularly, needles can dry out and pose a potential fire hazard. Make sure your tree has plenty of water by checking it regularly. Check the lights. Lights are one of the best parts of holiday decorating. Take a look at the ones on your tree and in and around your home for exposed or frayed wires, loose connections or broken sockets. Blow out candles and store matches out of reach. Keep holiday candles at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn, and dont forget to blow them out when you leave the room or before you go to sleep. Make a habit of placing matches and lighters in a safe place, out of childrens reach. Avoid novelty lighters or lighters that look like toys. Keep harmful plants out of reach. Plants can spruce up your holiday decorating, but keep those that may be poisonous out of reach of children or pets. This includes mistletoe berries, holly berry and Jerusalem cherry. In a poison emergency, call the national Poison Control Center at 800-222-1222. Find the perfect toy for the right age. Consider your childs age when purchasing a toy or game this holiday season. Its worth a second to read the instructions and warning labels to make sure the gift is just right. Before youve settled on the perfect toy, check to make sure there arent any small parts or other potential choking hazards. Keep button batteries away from young kids. Keep a special eye on small pieces, including button batteries that may be included in electronic toys. While these kinds of games are great for older kids, they can pose a potential danger for younger, curious siblings. Dont forget a helmet for new bikes or other toys. If your childs heart is set on a bike, skateboard or scooter this holiday season, be sure to include a helmet to keep them safe while theyre having fun. Prevent spills with pot handles. Kids love to reach, so to prevent burns from hot holiday food or liquid spills, simply use the back burner of your stove and turn pot handles away from the edge. Engage older kids in cooking. Teach older, responsible kids how to cook safely. Teach them never to leave the kitchen while theyre using the stove or oven. Instruct older kids to use oven mitts or potholders to remove items from the oven or stove and teach them how to use a microwave safely. Check your car seat before holiday travel. Seventy-three percent of car seats are not used or installed correctly, so before you hit the road, check your car seat. It takes only 15 minutes. If you are having even the slightest trouble, questions or concerns, certified child passenger safety technicians are able to help or even double-check your work. Use booster seats. Safety in the car goes beyond your little ones. Kids who have outgrown a forward-facing harness seat are not ready for a seat belt or front seat yet. They are safest in a booster seat that enables the adult seat belt to fit properly. Even when children have graduated from booster seats, they should remain in the back seat until they reach the age of 13.Christmas is a time for celebrating holiday traditions, spending quality time with family and friends and giving to others. But festivities can quickly become time-consuming, and safety might be overlooked. Keeping your child safe will help maximize your holiday enjoyment no one enjoys seeing their child in the emergency room for tripping over lights, ingesting toxic decorative plants or putting out their eyes. Here are some pointers from safekids.org to help keep your children safe during the holidays: Compiled by Eryn Worthington Special-needs pets need love and a little bit of care Special-needs kitties handicapped felines may be different, but they can still bring the same love and joy into your life as a cat without limitations. Perhaps they arent special needs pets, but simply special ones because they have overcome their disabilities. Felines that have special needs often come with disabilities such as blindness, deafness or lack of a limb. Usually cats like these do not need medicine on a regular basis, but their handicapped status does need to be taken into account. And of course, they need the normal amount of love and attention. There is one tip, however, to living with these special felines.: For these cats safety, they should be indoors-only kitties, said Mary Alice Bauman, a long-time volunteer at the Humanitarians of Floridas Hardin Haven. Being outdoors they need all their senses to survive, even though they may over-compensate with their other senses to handle their handicaps. The Humanitarians of Florida have five special kitties for adoption at Hardin Haven in Crystal River, and some have gone through hardship to gain their special status. Neptune is deaf in one ear. His eardrum was removed because of a chronic infection, and nowadays he thinks he is king of his domain. Pines, an adult cat, was born blind in one eye and doesnt seem to know it. Andrew and Kasha both had an eye removed due to an upper respiratory infection that got out of hand. Andrew, a male kitten, is a very beautiful, social boy, and Kasha is a calm and relaxed grown-up girl. Fluffy IIs right paw got caught in some wire and he chewed it off to escape. He is a kitten and plays with toys and runs around like there is no tomorrow. His leg end needs to be checked occasionally to make sure it doesnt get sore, but he is as normal as can be. All five of these kitties are handicapped, but to see them in their daily lives you would hardly know it. They play, love, eat, and carouse like every other feline in their home-style, cage-free environment. They seem to have no limitations. If your heart is moved to adopt one of these special kitties, call the Haven at 352-613-1629, or stop by and visit them at 1149 N. Conant Ave. in Crystal River. Special to the Chronicle Special to the ChronicleLEFT: Andrew, an orange and white tabby, may have lost an eye, but hes just as active and loving as a cat with both eyes. RIGHT: Neptune is deaf in one ear, but that doesnt keep him from being king of his domain. Inside:Giveaways continue at Mission/ C6

CHALKTALKPage C2WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Rotary City of Inverness Special to the ChronicleRotary Club of Inverness for the first time has awarded a college scholarship to a student based on how well they are doing after having begun college so they can be judged based upon their actual performance at the college level. This scholarship is open only to students that have previously received a scholarship from Inverness Rotary at the time of their graduation from Citrus High School. Of the numerous applicants, one seemed to stand out. Rotary Club of Inverness Committee Chairperson for this special new scholarship, Lace BlueMcLean, was proud to announce to the committee that Lauryn Rashley, a 2012 recipient of one of the clubs $1,000 scholarships, was the committees selection for this $3,000 scholarship that will help Lauryn continue her education at the College of Central Florida in Lecanto. She is studying for a degree in business. Pictured from left are: Rotary Club of Inverness President Lora Wilson; Lace Blue-McLean; Lauryn Rashely; and Inverness Publix Manager Janet Fergusen. Rotary Youth Exchange Rotary Youth Exchange Special to the ChronicleAlthough they come from many different lands, Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) students all celebrate the same season. The theme of the Inverness Rotary Club entry in the Inverness Christmas Parade was Rockin It Rotary Style, and featured four exchange students from all three county high schools. Pictured from left are: Arnaud Lecleroqz of Belgium, attending Lecanto High school and hosted by Sugarmill Woods Rotary Club; Erk Vestervall of Sweden, attending Citrus High School and hosted by Inverness Rotary; Maite Aristide of Brazil, attending Crystal River High School and co-hosted by Crystal River Kings Bay Rotary and Crystal River Rotary Club; and Mirna Majzec of Croatia, attending Citrus High School and hosted by Inverness Rotary. Inverness Rotary President Lora Wilson is standing on the parade float. Each student made a sign to wish the parade viewers a Merry Christmas in their native language as the float made its way along the route. Special to the ChronicleMirna Majzec, who is hosted by Rotary Club of Inverness as a Rotary Youth Exchange student, hails from Croatia and is attending Citrus High School for the year while a student sponsored by a Rotary Club in Chicago is staying at her home and going to her high school. While the young lady from Chicago could only dream about the turkey feast this year Mirna, helped make her first deep-fried turkey and learned to set the table (pictured with her host parents Connie & Doug Lobel) for 12 dinner guests. Part of the exchange program is cultural education, so while Mirna learned about Thanksgiving, her counterpart in Croatia learned about a baked ham cured by hanging it out by the seaside and then wrapping it in bread dough, Croatian comfort food at this time of year. Next comes Christmas American style, and Mirna cannot wait to learn everything about how we survive when jolly Saint Nick comes to town.

Stained glass artists have been creating beautiful windows for many hundreds of years. This week, The Mini Page celebrates the season by learning more about the art you may enjoy as you attend holiday church services.Early glass Historians believe ancient Romans learned to make glass and used it to let light into buildings. In fact, colored glass may have been used as early as the fifth century A.D. The first windows with patterns of glass were set into wooden or plaster frames. But these frames limited the shapes the artist could use. Later artists began to use a metal called lead (led) to hold the glass. It is malleable (MAL-ee-uh-bul), or workable into different shapes.An ancient art The earliest examples that scientists have found of glass and lead cut into specific shapes date back 1,200 to 1,400 years. Since that time, many styles of art have been seen in windows. But the process of creating stained glass has not changed much over the centuries.The Middle Ages As Christianity spread and became more powerful between the fifth and 15th centuries, stained glass became a popular way to tell stories and honor important figures from the Bible and the church. During medieval times, books were printed by hand and hard to come by. Most people could not read. Today, early stained glass and other art forms are sometimes called poor mans Bibles because they pictured stories for those who couldnt afford books.Cathedrals Church authorities began building massive cathedrals with larger window openings. These houses of worship were in areas with more people and were centers for the community. Most were built in the Gothic style, which includes soaring pointed arches, towers and highly decorated outside walls. Detail of a stained glass window in the Cologne Cathedral in Germany. This part of the window shows the shepherds and the Magi, or wise men, visiting the baby Jesus. This window was made in the late 1800s.photo Raimond Spekking/CC-BY-SA3.0 Words that remind us of stained glass are hidden in the block below.

On the Web: At the library: Book by Carol Schmidt from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickSymbols in Glass For religious leaders, stained glass images were more than just illustrations. They were symbols of faith. For example, the white light of the sun shining through colored glass was seen himself to people. The lead frames in the glass symbolized the prophets of the church. The first words in the Old Testament of the Bible describe the heavens and the Earth. The third said, Let there be light; and there light from the darkness. People in the Middle Ages thought of light as being good, and darkness as being bad or evil. So they wanted to bring light into their churches.The interior of St. Patricks Cathedral in New York City features the pointed arches and large stained glass windows typical of Gothic architecture. Building of this church began in 1858 and finished in 1878. Whats in a century? When we talk about a century, we are describing a period of 100 years. But then it gets confusing: Even though were living in the 2000s, this is the 21st century. Our years are counted roughly years after his birth are designated as A.D. ( Anno Domini, in Latin, which means In the year of our Lord), or C.E., meaning Common Era. The years before his birth are referred to as B.C. (Before Christ) or B.C.E. (Before Common Era). The first century, or 100 years, birth were the years 1 to 100. The second century began with the year 101 and ended at 200. So the 20th century was the 1900s, and the 21st century is made up of the 2000s.

Would you like sketch of the window design. the design is approved by the client, or person who is ordering the window, the artist draws a full-scale design. This is called a cartoon. (Full-scale means the same size as the finished window will be.) Today, cartoons are produced on paper. In medieval times, artists made the cartoons on parchment or directly on a whitewashed table. The artist indicates on the cartoon where the lead lines will be and the shape and color of the individual panes of glass to be used. cut to size. In earlier times, different people did the different jobs: cutting the glass, painting the glass and placing the lead. But today, most stained glass artists do all these jobs. glass with brown or black paint. Thicker paint will make more solid lines; thinner paint can be brushed after drying to give a shading effect.Its all about chemistry and lime are heated to very high temperatures. The mixture becomes a liquid, and as it cools, it becomes more and more stiff. Finally, it becomes a transparent solid: glass. Colored glass is usually made by adding powdered metals to the glass while it is still liquid. Different metals result in different colors: cames, are in sort of an H or I shape; the glass fits into the openings between the top and bottom. a table according to the pattern. The cames are bent around each piece. Nails are driven into the table to hold the lead in place as each section is completed. When a panel is done, the lead is soldered (SAWduhrd), or melted, so that the sections join together. Then the window joints are sealed with a sticky substance called mastic. photos courtesy The Stained Glass Museum Next, the painted glass is fired in a kiln, a super-hot oven that fuses the paint to the glass. Then its allowed to cool slowly. The Mini Page thanks Dr. Jasmine Allen, curator of The Stained Glass Museum, Ely Cathedral, Cambridgeshire, U.K., for help with this issue. A small panel of stained glass from York Minster in England is believed to date back to about 1150. It is one of the oldest surviving pieces of stained glass in England.

Associated PressPITTSBURGH Researchers are trying to plant a digital seed for artificial intelligence by letting a massive computer system browse millions of pictures and decide for itself what they all mean. The system at Carnegie Mellon University is called NEIL, short for Never Ending Image Learning. In midJuly, it began searching the Internet for images 24/7 and, in tiny steps, is deciding for itself how those images relate to each other. The goal is to recreate what we call common sense the ability to learn things without being specifically taught. Its a new approach in the quest to solve computings Holy Grail: getting a machine to think on its own using a form of common sense. The project is being funded by Google and the Department of Defenses Office of Naval Research. Any intelligent being needs to have common sense to make decisions, said Abhinav Gupta, a professor in the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute. NEIL uses advances in computer vision to analyze and identify the shapes and colors in pictures, but it is also slowly discovering connections between objects on its own. For example, the computers have figured out that zebras tend to be found in savannahs and that tigers look somewhat like zebras. In just over four months, the network of 200 processors has identified 1,500 objects and 1,200 scenes and has connected the dots to make 2,500 associations. Some of NEILs computer-generated associations are wrong, such as rhino can be a kind of antelope, while some are odd, such as actor can be found in jail cell or news anchor can look similar to Barack Obama. But Gupta said having a computer make its own associations is an entirely different type of challenge than programing a supercomputer to do one thing very well, or fast. For example, in 1985, Carnegie Mellon researchers programed a computer to play chess; 12 years later, a computer beat world chess champion Garry Kasparov in a match. Catherine Havasi, an artificial intelligence expert at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said humans constantly make decisions using this huge body of unspoken assumptions, while computers dont. She said humans can also quickly respond to some questions that would take a computer longer to figure out. Robert Sloan, an expert on artificial intelligence and head of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois, Chicago, said the NEIL approach could yield interesting results because just using language to teach a computer has all sorts of problems unto itself. What I would be especially impressed by is if they can consistently say zebra, zebra, zebra if they see the animal in different locations, Sloan said of the computers.

COMMUNITYPage C6WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Adopt ARESCUED PET Casper Special to the ChronicleCasper is a 5-year-old, neutered, cream-colored Maltese. He is sweet and loving and likes other dogs. Unfortunately, he has spent his entire life in a crate and that makes the world a very scary place.

Casper needs a quiet home (no small children) with an owner who has the time to teach him the world is a wonderful place. Adopt A Rescued Pet Inc. does home visits prior to adoptions, so can only adopt to the Citrus County area. Call 352-795-9550 and leave your name, number and pets name for a return call.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER18, 2013 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.There is an old saying that real bridge players dont need Blackwood. Of course, before bidding a slam, Blackwood of one ilk or another is often used. But on some deals it will not help, and the partnership needs to employ control-bidding (cue-bidding). Look at this deal. South opens two clubs; North responds two diamonds, not being quite strong enough for a two-heart positive with that relatively weak suit; South rebids two spades; and North raises to three spades, promising a smattering of points. (Some players would make a four-club splinter bid, showing the singleton, but I like four-card spade support for that action.) Now if South uses Blackwood, he learns that his partner has one ace but he does not know if it is the useless heart ace or the invaluable diamond ace. Instead, he makes a fourclub control-bid, showing a first-round club control (ace or void), expressing slam interest, and asking partner if he has a suitable hand. North, with a terrific hand, makes a four-diamond control-bid. Now South, wondering about the club situation, control-bids four hearts. And when North control-bids five clubs to show his second-round control (king or singleton), South leaps majestically to seven spades. South ruffs the heart lead, cashes his club ace, ruffs a club in the dummy, returns to his hand with a trump, ruffs the club queen, carefully ruffs a heart in his hand (does not play a diamond!), draws the last trump and claims.

It seems they walk up to unsuspecting people and throw the hardest punch they can to the face in an effort to knock someone out. In one instance, a man was hit so hard, he fell face first to the curb and fractured his skull. He died, and the person who hit him was charged with manslaughter. The kids being interviewed were all laughing about it, as if it were some sort of party. They said it was a macho thing, to prove how tough or strong you are. The sad part is that they are raised as if their actions have no consequences. Parents, teach your children better before its too late. Worried Adult Dear Adult: Its sad to see a world where children think assault is a sport, where the constant media barrage publicizes and glamorizes violence, and where these immature teens either dont understand the consequences of their actions or think prison is simply another badge of toughness. We doubt they would find this activity so much fun if the victim were someone they cared about. Weve forgotten how to be civilized to one another, nor do we value it. Parents not only need to teach compassion and responsibility to their children, but they have the added burden of combating the multiple pernicious influences around them. Its hard to raise kids these days, and we commend those parents who manage to do it well. Dear Annie: I have a friend who often asks: Whats happening? But when I attempt to tell her, she rudely interrupts and says, I dont want to hear about it! It doesnt matter what the subject is. She even interrupts for others, saying, She doesnt want to hear about it! She also cuts me off mid-sentence and mockingly finishes my thoughts for me. Attempting to carry on a conversation with her is hurtful and exasperating, and I find her to be extremely rude. However, if the conversation centers on her, it can go on forever. Also, if she is trying to impress people, no matter how boring the conversation, she hangs on their every word. I have to deal with this conversation bully often. How am I supposed to handle her? Sharp Stick in the Ear Dear Sharp: You are already aware that your friend is self-centered and only interested in conversation that is somehow beneficial to her. When she asks, Whats happening? she doesnt really want to know. Its simply her way of saying hello. Here are your options: You can tell your friend how rude and upsetting this is and ask her to be more considerate; you can restrict your conversation to topics that stroke her ego; you can find other friends. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Furious and Concerned, whose physician cousin often treats and gives medication to family members. The Medical Board of California does not prohibit physicians from treating family members, but does require that any prescribing of medications (and giving samples is indeed prescribing) be accompanied by an appropriate history and physical examination. It also requires that adequate medical records be kept of the treatment, the same as for any other patient. In California, the actions described would put that physician at risk of losing his license for unprofessional conduct. I dont know what state this cousin lives in, but Furious should advise her relatives to stop asking him for free medical care. We all receive such requests, and they are often difficult to refuse. She also could send the physician a copy of this reply, as he may be unaware that his actions are putting his license at risk.
