Speaking to the Chronicleeditorial board, Commissioner John JJ Kenney gave more details about a discussion conducted on Tuesday by the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), which then instructed Acting County Attorney Kerry Parsons to begin development of an ordinance to cover the sale of any county property and to research the advantages and disadvantages of selling the county jail. The issue came up because Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), which leases the jail, asked the county about making an offer to buy it. Selling any county property would be considered on the merits of each case, Kenney said. With the sale of some of our assets that we no longer need, we can find a better way to function, Kenney said Wednesday. Were looking at some real capital outlays in the coming years.

Firefighters find body in homeOCALA Fire officials said they found a body inside an Ocala home following a fire. The fire broke out late Tuesday and officials found the body early Wednesday morning. The Ocala Star-Banner reported officials couldnt initially determine the sex of the victim. Assistant Fire Chief Brian Stoothoff told the newspaper firefighters received the first call shortly before 9 p.m. and that flames were shooting from the roof when they arrived a few minutes later. The fire was under control by 9:20 p.m. Russell Kirk, who lives across the street, said he saw the fire and ran to the front door, but it was locked. He said his girlfriend called 911 while he checked other doors. The pool door was unlocked and he rescued a dog from a cage.Zimmerman art on auction siteORLANDO Artwork reportedly created by George Zimmerman is attracting bids of more than $100,000 on eBay. A canvas painting depicting a U.S. flag in shades of blue, with the words God, One Nation, with Liberty and Justice for All, continued to be listed on the website Wednesday by a user called therealgeorgez. A picture depicts Zimmerman holding the artwork. The auction started Monday and is set to end Saturday. Neither the artworks authenticity nor the bids could be confirmed by The Associated Press. A spokesman said eBay doesnt disclose users personal information but that the company reviews reports of inauthenticity. Messages sent to the seller werent returned. Zimmerman was acquitted in July in the shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin. Last week, prosecutors said they wouldnt file domestic violence charges against Zimmerman for an incident at the Florida house he shared with his girlfriend.Kids banned from playing in streetLAKEWOOD RANCH A homeowners association in Manatee County is prohibiting children from playing in the street. ABC Action News reported the Miramar at the Country Club Homeowners Association passed a new bylaw last week, saying that children cant play in the street due to safety reasons. Association officials told the TV station that theres one narrow, winding road through the community and drivers often speed. One association members said there are other places for children to play. Some parents call the new rule absurd.Bear that attacked woman IDdLONGWOOD Wildlife authorities have positively identified a bear that mauled a woman who was walking her dogs earlier this month. But wildlife authorities said Wednesday that the bear wont be euthanized since she was captured with two of her cubs. Two other bears were euthanized after being captured in the days after the attack on suspicions that they may have been responsible for the womans injuries. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officials said the mother bear and her two cubs will receive temporary care from Busch Gardens in Tampa. Next spring, the cubs will be released back into the wild after they have been weaned, and the mother will be sent to an accredited facility that cares for bears.Service planned for missing mom, kidsDELTONA Friends and family have planned a service to remember a missing central Florida woman and her two young children. Investigators said that Yessenia Suarez, 28, and her children Thalia Otto, 9, and Michael Otto, 8 are dead, but their bodies have not been found. They went missing Oct. 23. The Daytona Beach NewsJournal reported the service is planned for 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday at Iglesia Adventista del Septimo Dia. We will be having a service at church, not a memorial, only a night to remember Yessenia and the kids, Ruben Perez, stepfather of the missing woman, wrote in a text message. Volusia County Sheriffs deputies have arrested Suarezs husband, 31-yearold Luis Toledo. He confessed that during an argument about their troubled marriage he struck her in the throat and killed her. He has denied killing the children. Toledo pleaded not guilty Nov. 21.Anthony freed from most debtsTAMPA A bankruptcy judge has ruled that Casey Anthony wont have to pay most of her debts, discharging what she owes except for those related to student loans or criminal fines, if she has them. Judge K. Rodney May signed the order Tuesday for Anthony, who filed for bankruptcy in Florida earlier this year, claiming about $1,000 in assets and $792,000 in liabilities. Court papers list Anthony as unemployed, with no recent income. Most of her liabilities are legal bills. Anthony was acquitted of murder in 2011 in the death her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, and has been in hiding since then. In November, the federal bankruptcy judge approved a settlement between Anthony and a Texas search group that helped look for Caylee whose remains were found in December 2008, about six months after she had gone missing in Orlando. Casey Anthony waited a month to report the toddler missing and was arrested in October 2008. The nationally televised trial lasted for six weeks and ended in her acquittal on the murder charge, but she was convicted on charges of lying to law enforcement.A2THURSDAY, DECEMBER19, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESTATE 000GX2T 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.

Company designs Christmas wondermentPATFAHERTY Staff writerKeeping the two-story-high candy cane arch kid-proof and safely in place was just part of the challenge facing David Seijas and Central Florida Foam and Design when it came to building the Santa Land set at the Crystal River Mall. It had to conjure up Christmas wonderment from a childs point of view, be alluring to holiday shoppers, durable and able to be stored for next year. We had to make it so it can be reused, so it would hold up and not fall over, said Seijas. And we had to make it so the kids couldnt beat it apart. To accomplish this he created large faux snow drifts, which support the giant striped candy canes, cupcakes and lollipops. A high school art class painted the lollipops and Mike Scott Plumbing provided PVC pipes that were painted almond to look like giant wooden sticks. They just fall in love with it, he said about the kids coming to see Santa. They stand on it and pick the little crystals off the cupcakes. Its a joint effort, he said, crediting his staff. Youve got to have the vision and then it takes a team to make it a reality. Turning customer ideas into reality has been the companys mainstay. Whether producing props for trade shows and celebrations, business signs or interior-exterior architecture features, he said they can find a foam solution. His daughters wedding inspired a unique foam backdrop that resulted in what has become a popular wedding decoration. The material is lightweight, strong and portable and can be coated for a concrete-like weatherproof finish. Some things are permanent and there are some things we make portable for a reason, he said. They want to take it down and use it again. Other examples of the companys work include a medieval fort for an Orlando high school stage, a variety of prominent local outdoor business signs, a submarine form, various molds, an alligator mailbox and a snowman. Customer locations have ranged from New Hampshire to the Virgin Islands. Its amazing, interesting and has opened a lot of doors, Seijas said. I have the machine, the knowledge and with my staff, can almost do anything anybody asks us to do. The four-year-old business evolved from his work in stucco and stone. He still operates Colony Stone and Plastering, started by his father, Ernie Seijas Sr., in 1948. He credits the plastering skills handed down by his father, who inspired him to push the boundaries for their success with foam projects. At the companys workshop in Hernando, under manager Ted Walters, large blocks of polystyrene foam are transformed into the various project components by an electric cutter, lathes and other specialty tools. Seijas said his ideas for future projects include a big moai (Easter Island statue) and, of course, a manatee. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com.

Yankees decision delayed JIMCLARK South Marion CitizenMarion County commissioners Tuesday delayed a decision concerning the proposed baseball stadium for a New York Yankees minor league team. Chairman Carl Zalak said he was discussing options with the city of Ocala and the Chamber and Economic Partnership, trying to find a solution that would eliminate the need for the proposed one-half percent sales tax. He asked for and received permission from other commissioners to continue the public hearing on the sales tax ordinances until the next regular meeting, on Jan. 7. If the commissioners still decide to have an election, it would probably be in early April. Marion County Supervisor of Elections Wes Wilcox had said at a previous meeting that if the proposed March 18 date were to be met, he would have to have a definitive answer Dec. 17, 91 days before the election. Still being considered, now in January, are two ordinances, one for a regular vote and the other for a mail-in ballot. City Manager Matt Brower said after the meeting that he had spoken with Frank Bruno of the Yankees who said that a short delay was acceptable. In a related issue, the commissioners scheduled a public hearing, also for Jan. 7, on an amendment to a county alcohol sales ordinance, which would allow drinks to be sold at the stadium. David Moore was the lone dissenter in the 4-1 vote. The public hearings on Jan. 7 will be at 10 a.m. Even with Zalaks statement that he was working on an agreement and hoped to avoid a sales tax, several members of the public spoke during the hearing. A few were in favor of the project, but many were against it. Some of the comments against the project included a man who said the project looks like crony capitalism. Others had the theme, Let the Yankees pay for it. A tea party official said the local group had voted no to the project. He said that he was concerned that the buck not be passed to the voters. Another man told the commissioners, Youre here to govern. He said he didnt like the way it happened, with the city working on the project for two years before demanding a vote on short notice. Butch Verrando, a former county commission candidate, said the project should not be a government participation enterprise and criticized government and business cooperation. Others said they approve of the stadium, but not at public expense. Another suggested putting it downtown. And near the end, one woman evoked laughter from the audience when she seriously said the new stadium would add nothing to the community except enjoyment. In the end, the decision was made to allow Zalak more time to negotiate, and the hearing will continue on Jan. 7, along with the alcohol sales, a change in ordinance that will not be needed if the stadium fails.Jim Clark is editor of the South Marion Citizen, as Chronicle sister newspaper. Team considering minor league baseball stadium in Ocala ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Volunteers are working hard to ensure Christmas is possible for families in need in Citrus County. Staff and volunteers at the Spot Family Center are preparing for their 10th annual Spot Christmas Jam on Dec. 23 and 24 in Jim LeGrone Park, 405 S.E. Seventh Ave., Crystal River. The Spot Family Center is a Christian-based not-for-profit ministry in Citrus County that assists families in need. Both nights a full dinner will be provided for attendees. Last year, more than 500 people attended. In addition to dinner, they have games, prizes, bounce houses, music, gift give-aways and groceries (while supplies last). Every year is different, but last year we served over 500 family units, which could be more than one child per family, said Evelyn Vissicchio, who, together with her husband, Joe, operates the ministry. We had at least 400 children. Their goal is to ensure that every child (ages 2 to 16) receives a gift and message. We try to show the real reason for the season, Vissicchio said. Both evenings we give a life message of hope with biblical principles. Everything that we give them is free. The only thing that we have in life that is free is the will to free choices. We want people to make choices that are healthy for their life. We are there to show that Gods love is free and the choices that they make are free, too. They are free to make some good choices that could change their life. As the event quickly approaches, donations are also needed. A mass toy wrapping party to finish wrapping the approximately 3,000 toys is from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight, at the center. We have some age groups that are lacking, like the 7 to 11 age group and our teenagers, Vissicchio said. We are hoping in the next couple of days we get more donations for those two groups. Vissicchio said parents must attend with their children and that Citrus County photo identification is required. Registration begins both days at 5:30 p.m. and closes at 7 p.m. For monetary donations, make checks payable to The Spot Family Center. The Spot mailing address is 405 S.E. Seventh Ave., Crystal River, FL 34429. For more information about the event, volunteering or donations, call The Spot at 352-794-3870. WHAT: The Spot Family Christmas Jam.

The report was delivered Wednesday to Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr. New Yorkbased Christies said its fair market valuation of the artwork increased from a preliminary range of $452 million to $866 million to $454 million to $867 million. Christies five alternatives to selling the art include using it as collateral to secure loans or lines of credit and creating a partnership with another museum where the art would be leased out on a long-term basis. The auction house also said the city could establish a trust from which U.S. museums rent the city-owned art. The Detroit Institute of Arts is considered one of the top art museums in the country. It holds artwork by Van Gogh Monet, Renoir and other greats. Rodins massive bronze sculpture The Thinker was gifted to the museum in 1922 and sits outside the buildings main entrance. Detroits debt is at least $18 billion, which includes $5.7 billion in unfunded retiree health care obligations and $3.5 billion in unfunded pension liabilities, according to Orr.Tyler Perry says Fincher is amazing directorNEW YORK Tyler Perry writes, directs, stars in and produces his own movies and TV shows, so he doesnt have much time for outside projects. One hes glad he made work is a role in director David Finchers upcoming film, Gone Girl. Based on the best-selling novel by Gillian Flynn Gone Girl is the story of a man who comes under suspicion in the disappearance of his wife. The movie, scheduled for release next October, stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. Gone Girl is the most educational, awe-inspiring thing that Ive ever done, Perry said in a recent interview. Sitting in his presence, in his genius, the man is a genius, he said of Fincher. It really makes me go, Whoa, let me just stop and take this in, so its been wonderful.Hiddleston wows critics in London CoriolanusLONDON Tom Hiddleston has gone from the theater to Thor and back again. The British actor has returned to his classical stage roots with an acclaimed starring role in William Shakespeares Coriolanus. Shakespeare led me to superheroes, Hiddleston told Wednesdays edition of the Evening Standard newspaper, as critics raved about his performance in the Bards bloodsoaked tragedy at Londons Donmar Warehouse. Hiddleston made a splash at the 250-seat venue in a 2008 production of Othello starring Chiwetel Ejiofor Director Kenneth Branagh later cast him in the superhero film Thor, and he has gone on to star as the Norse heros evil brother Loki in three Marvel Studios movies. He returns to the stage as the anti-hero of Shakespeares final tragedy. In some ways the character is the dark flipside of warrior-king Henry V a role Hiddleston played in the BBCs Shakespearean series The Hollow Crown.

Superintendent of Schools Sandra Sam Himmel. The Department of Education issues grades primarily on a points system based on Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) scores, graduation rates, college readiness and access to rigorous and accelerated coursework. The maximum score is 1,600, with 1,050 points needed for an A and 990 points needed for a B. Citrus High earned 1,020 points, Crystal River earned 1,005 points and Lecanto High earned 1,193 points. Furthermore, Patrick Simon, director of research and accountability, said in a press release that there is a new criteria used to determine the graduation rate of students in Florida, which is referred to as the Federal Uniform Rate (FUR). This rating does not include special diploma students or students who earn a General Educational Development (GED). Included in the graduation rate threshold is a requirement of 65 percent for at-risk learners. Plus, the accountability rating for graduation rate is an average of the FUR four-year rate and the FUR five-year rate. Simon said bonus points may be earned in the newer areas that include graduation rate, acceleration in Advanced Placement classes, International Baccalaureate classes and Industry Certification for career and technical classes. Also, bonus points can be awarded to students who score collegeready in reading and math on college entrance tests. Simon said the College Readiness rating now includes a new requirement that almost all 11thgrade students take a college readiness test such as the ACT, SAT or Post-secondary Education Readiness Test (PERT). The Academy of Environmental Science receives a high school grade only on FCAT reading, math, writing and science data due to the fact that students do not graduate. shelter. Id love to build the reserves. Proceeds from the sale of any county property would go toward capital projects and building county reserves, which Kenney said he would like to increase to 11 percent. If the jail were sold, Kenney said, the county would make sure it lost no ownership benefits. The agreement would have to give the county a buy-back right or first refusal option if the new owner decided to sell. CCA, which owns more than 60 detention facilities throughout the United States, with a total bed capacity of more than 85,000, built an addition to the existing jail several years ago at its own expense, so it already has invested in the property, Kenney said. In addition to county inmates, the jail houses others from the Virgin Islands, the U.S. Marshals Service and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement under contracts. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said the countys budget for the jail was about $11 million. He said he advised CCA to make no offer yet. Ive kept the board away from the conversation with CCA because I want it to be pure when we go through the process, Thorpe said. Before this board even entertains it, Id have a professional financial analysis of the offer, so Id get a second opinion before Id even present it to the board. However, Thorpe said CCA indicated the sale could be advantageous to the county. The only thing they said is: You will be surprised your per diem rate may go down, Thorpe said. The sale also could be part of a larger improvement plan. Its no secret and Ill give JJ a lot of credit, Thorpe said. Hes been looking for a new dog shelter and the thought is that we would build one out near that property (in Lecanto). The prisoners would help run the kennel. Thorpe described how closing the current animal shelter at Inverness Airport would improve road access to the airport and assist in extending a bike trail in Inverness. Airport Road that serves the animal shelter could be extended to serve the new fixed-base operator at Inverness Airport rather than using East Watson Street, further to the south, as it currently does. To extend Airport Road, the county would need to get an agreement with the city of Inverness. Weve got to cut a deal with Inverness. Were going to swap some land with them, Thorpe said. They own that old landfill there. Wed get that piece from Inverness and wed give them the west side of Whispering Pines. We own the right of way to (U.S.) 41 and (City Manager) Frank (DiGiovanni) wants to make a bike trail that goes on the west side of Whispering Pines down to old 44. We own all that land. That was going to be a bypass one day. That would be the land swap.

Margrette Miller, 71CRYSTAL RIVERMargrette Ann Miller, 71, Crystal River, Fla., fell victim to Oligodendroglioma, a very rare form of brain cancer, and passed away Dec. 9, 2013, just a few weeks after it was diagnosed at the Moffatt Cancer Center in Tampa. Margrette, born Oct. 19, 1942, in Elora, Tenn., lived for the past 12 years at 202 Bay Path Drive in Crystal River, where she kept her house and was a very active gardener. Margrette was a sweet Christian lady who was well liked by everyone who ever met her. She loved walking her Shetland Sheepdog, Wylie, around the neighborhood, and personally knew many people in the South Citrus part of Crystal River. She also enjoyed sitting around on the community dock with her best friends, the local neighbors. She will be sorely missed by everyone who knew her. Margrette was married to Jim Miller for 28 years. Jim was her third husband. They met in Huntsville, Ala., in July 1985, and they were married in December of that same year. She actually saved his life on numerous occasions. During those first 16 years of her marriage to Jim, Margrette travelled all over the world and visited more than 35 separate countries. She lived for several years in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, three years in Manila, Philippines, and two years in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Margrette travelled to six of the seven continents and twice on separate occasions circumnavigated the Earth. She often said that everyone in America should have the opportunities to travel and see the world as she had, because then they would more fully appreciate the beauty and the unique greatness of the USA. She was an expert in hand-woven carpets and Chinese furniture. She also collected antique cobalt glass. Margrette was the most frugal woman that anyone who knew her had ever met. She came from a family of poor but hardworking sharecroppers in the hills of south Tennessee and she was proud to squeeze a nickel until the buffalo bellowed. Her first-grade school dress was made of floursack cloth, but her mother always made sure that she was clean and that there was always something on the table. As a result of her upbringing, she was extremely conservative in her political views, believed strongly in a balanced national and personal budget, believed that America should have no national debt and absolutely believed that everyone should work as hard as she had worked for whatever benefits they received. Margrette has three surviving brothers, Roe, Hugh and Edward Williams and a sister Saundra. Margrette is survived by her daughter, Laurie Walker; and her son, Tommy Schrimsher, both from her first marriage. Margrette also left four grandchildren, Darryl, Alexa and Jesse Walker, and Taylor Halligan. Margrette will be buried in Cullman, Ala., Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013. A wake will be held at the Miller residence at 202 Bay Path Drive in Crystal River from 1 until 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 28, 2013. Anyone who knew Margrette is invited to attend with their guests and pay their respects to a truly fantastic lady. Sign the guest book at www.chronicleonline.com.Gerald Tillman, 66HOMOSASSAGerald F.

A farmer in Wisconsin for many years and later a builder in Orlando, he and his wife moved to Homosassa to retire.

Obituaries Peter Magamoll Gerald Tillman Great Train Robber Biggs dies at age 84 Associated PressLONDON Ronnie Biggs was a petty criminal who set out to transform his life with the daring heist of a mail train packed with money. The plan worked in ways he could never have imagined. Biggs was part of a gang of at least 12 men that robbed a Glasgow-to-London Royal Mail train in the early hours of Aug. 8, 1963, switching its signals and tricking the driver into stopping in the darkness. The robbery netted 125 sacks of banknotes worth 2.6 million pounds $7.3 million at the time, or more than $50 million today and became known as the heist of the century. Biggs, who has died at age 84, was soon caught and jailed, but his escape from a London prison and decades on the run turned him into a media sensation and something of a notorious British folk hero. He lived for many years beyond the reach of British justice in Rio de Janeiro, where he would regale tourists and the media alike with stories about the robbery. He appeared to enjoy thumbing his nose at the British authorities and even sold T-shirts and other memorabilia about his role in the robbery.

Associated PressGRASSY KEY Molly, a bottlenose dolphin in her early 50s, cant see very well and requires special care. The staff at the Dolphin Research Center in the Florida Keys is teaching her to respond to verbal and touch-related signals before she loses her sight completely. Molly isnt the only one learning from these sessions, which also include the first five students in the centers College of Marine Mammal Professions. The 36-week program that yields an Associate of Science Degree in Marine Mammal Behavior, Care and Training is the only one in the U.S. that teaches handson training and care of marine mammals, according to the International Marine Animal Trainers Association. The care of marine mammals is a growing but competitive field. In particular, geriatric marine mammal care is a field that is becoming more important these days as Molly and other animals in human care are living longer than their counterparts in the wild, said Kirsten Donald, the centers education director. We provide the same kind of care as with aging humans, Donald said. The centers degree is an expansion on its weeklong dolphin lab program that started in 1985. The colleges first students, all women, will graduate in May and the college is looking to expand by offering other degrees in marine mammal professions. The program costs $20,310, including tuition and fees. Most marine animal caregivers learn through internships, acquiring such skills as how to prepare an animals meal. The research centers program teaches advanced skills such as how to calculate a diet based on the animals age, health status or the season. with little or no consultation. Some offices would also fill the prescriptions. Bondi said she became appalled when she learned after taking office 2011 that seven Floridians were dying daily from prescription drug abuse, and that of the 100 top dispensers of prescription pills in the nation, Florida was home to 98 of them. Lawmakers acted, and by later that same year, pill mills became illegal. Today, Bondi said she is happy to report that the 98 top dispensers of prescription pills no longer exist. She lauded the collective effort by state leaders to ensure that Floridians suffering under the odious weight of the foreclosure crisis got the money they had coming from a landmark mortgage relief settlement between 49 attorneys general and the nations five largest lenders over a practice called robo-signing. The 2012 settlement was worth $25 billion. Floridas initial share was $8.4 billion, second only to California, which had an even worse housing crisis between 2008 and 2011. However, Bondi said the state ended up with $9.22 billion worth of relief money and at last count had helped more than a 120,000 Floridians. Bondi believes there are many Floridians eligible for foreclosure relief help that they may be unaware of. I think if your mortgage is underwater and you are current with a rate of, I am not sure, five-and-aquarter or higher, you could be eligible ... she said. We are still in the midst of it. If you know any people going through the process, tell them to call my office, Bondi said. She also touched on her enforcement efforts to tamp down on crimes such as human trafficking and scams targeting spouses of active military personnel. Bondi said scammers have been targeting spouses of deployed military personnel. She said her office is aggressively going after those types of scammers and wants service people know if they are out there fighting for us, we, too, will be here fighting for them. If you steal from our active military members spouses or children, we are coming after you. Bondi also spoke about her efforts to rid the state of synthetic drugs. Lawmakers have reclassified several of the chemicals used to make these hallucinogenic drugs as banned controlled substances. Clever chemists, however, keep reconfiguring the chemical structures primarily in crude labs in Asia and reintroducing the drugs. Bondi said her office stays on top of it. The organizers of the event, WPNCC, meet monthly with speakers of interest to inform county residents of state and local issues of concern. The next meeting is Jan. 21 and the keynote speaker will be Joyce Brancato, chief executive officer of Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center.STATE/LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETHURSDAY, DECEMBER19, 2013 A7 Blackshears II Aluminum 795-9722 Free Estimates www.blackshears.com Licensed & Insured RR 0042388 Years As Your Hometown Dealer 000GRQV HWY. 44 CRYSTAL RIVER 2013 2013 2013 2013 Rescreen Seamless Gutters Garage Screens New Screen Room Glass Room Conversions 000GUXFHISTORIC DOWNTOWN FLORAL CITYUS HWY. 41 SOUTH Open Mon.-Sat 9am-5pm, Sun. 12-5Store: (352) 860-0366 Fax 726-2125www.ferrisgroves.com SHIPPING FLORIDAS FINEST CITRUS Home Grown Strawberries, Gourmet Baskets, Strawberry Pies, Milkshakes and ShortcakeAmish Cheese Homemade Fudge Local Honey Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice Ferris GrovesThe Finest Name in CitrusMerryChristmas FERRIS GROVES Dont ForgetFERRIS BEEF for your Christmas DinnerIts Only NaturalORDER YOUR HOLIDAY PIE OR FRUIT SECTIONS Great Last Minute Gift Ideas and Stocking Stuffers FEAR NO EVIL GUNS & AMMO (352) 447-5595 email: joecino@fearnoevilguns.com 22 Hwy. 40 East, Inglis, FL 34449 (Next to Shell Station) HO!

served 733 children. Weve been signing families up since Oct. 13 and well be taking emergency registrations Monday and Tuesday, said Jennifer Campbell, CUB executive director. Beginning Tuesday, parents have braved the chilly mornings, lining up outside CUB waiting to shop for their children, choosing from the estimated 50,000 toys plus 188 bikes and helmets donated by High Octane Saloon as well as bikes from other organizations such as the Citrus County Airboat Alliance and Giovannis Pub in Hernando. Toy distribution continues through Friday, Dec. 20. The whole thing is so heartwarming, Campbell said. This is a total community effort with the whole community coming together from all different agencies, from churches and civic groups and golf clubs to garden clubs we get to be the stewards of the program. And the volunteers we have 35 to 40 every day who work so hard. We are blessed to be able to do this every year. On Wednesday, Donald Miles had come to CUB looking for gifts for his 7-year-old son and 5-yearold granddaughter. At their age, they want anything and everything, he said. He admitted to being unsure of what he was doing. My wife usually does this, but shes at work, he said. Im new at this. He was assigned a volunteer elf who guided him through the tables laden with toys and gifts, all carefully separated by gender and age. Were always short on infants and older kids ages 11 to 13 because theyre the hardest to buy for, especially girls that age, Campbell said. As his elf helped him find something his son would like, Miles paused at a table filled with dolls and smiled. Shes all about dolls, he said about his granddaughter. Following right behind him, Victor Shahid selected gifts for his three children. This is the second year weve done this, Shahid said. I just want them to have a happy Christmas. This is a blessing from God to have this place. Campbell said the people who come to CUB are genuinely thankful. Things are tough, families are struggling and children dont understand about things like unemployment, food stamps or tight budgets that dont have room for the latest toys and gadgets. CUB gives parents the opportunity to be heroes to their kids, whether the kids realize it or not. We had a woman come in who has three kids, Campbell said. She saw the wall of shoes that we had and said she would gladly trade a bike for shoes for her kids. To be able to have 1,000 pairs of shoes thats the community. Citrus United Basket is at 103 N. Mill Ave., Inverness. Created in 1978 to assist local families facing temporary hardship, CUB annually provides food to more than 25,000 individuals, financial assistance to more than 2,200 and material assistance to more than 6,000 people, plus provides more than 1,500 households with a traditional holiday dinner at Christmas. Donations of nonperishable food items and cash are always needed and gratefully received.

Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market had a swift and clear reaction to the Federal Reserves decision to trim its stimulus efforts: This wasnt so bad after all. Stocks surged Wednesday, lifting the Dow Jones industrial average nearly 300 points, after the Fed decided it was time to start modestly scaling back its program to boost Americas growth and stock market. The central bank cited a stronger jobs market and improving economy. Stock investors had long anticipated the Fed would pull back at some point, but did not think it would happen until next year. Despite the surprise, investors took the central banks decision Wednesday as a sign that that the stock market was strong enough to keep soaring, even with less rocket fuel from the Fed. Investors should see this as a vote of confidence for the economy, said Kristina Hooper, head of U.S. investment strategies for Allianz Global Investors The Dow jumped 292 points, or nearly 2 percent, to 16,167.97 another alltime high for the blue-chip index. Shortly before the Fed announcement at 2 p.m., the Dow was up just 47 points. The broader Standard & Poors 500 index rose 29 points, also 2 percent, to 1,810.65 and the Nasdaq composite rose 46 points, or 1 percent, to 4,070.06. The rally adds to what has already been a historic run for stocks. The S&P 500 is up nearly 27 percent, its best yearly performance since the dot-com boom of the late 1990s. The Feds decision removes a huge amount of uncertainty for investors, something they hate. The fate of the stimulus program had hung over investors heads since May. Now that investors have an outline for how the Fed will pull back, investors can move forward. With no economic downturn on the horizon, stocks are expected to continue their rise in 2014, with market strategists predicting gains of 6 percent to 8 percent from current levels. Starting in January, the Fed will reduce its bondbuying program to $75 billion a month from $85 billion now. The so-called tapering will be the first step toward winding down a program that has been in place, in one form or another, since the financial crisis. By purchasing bonds and depressing yields, the Fed has kept interest rates low and encouraged borrowing and lending. But all that buying has also led investors to shift money into stocks. Thats because the Feds purchases made bond prices artificially more expensive in comparison to stocks. The program has given the Fed a big role in the current bull market. The S&P 500 index has surged about 26 percent since the Fed announced a year ago that it would buy the $85 billion in bonds each month. And since the central banks first round of bond buying at the end of 2008, stocks have soared about 124 percent.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETHURSDAY, DECEMBER19, 2013 A9 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,520 1,600 1,680 1,760 1,840 JD JASON 1,760 1,800 1,840 S&P 500Close: 1,810.65 Change: 29.65 (1.7%) 10 DAYS 14,400 14,800 15,200 15,600 16,000 16,400 JD JASON 15,680 15,940 16,200 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,167.97 Change: 292.71 (1.8%) 10 DAYSAdvanced2454 Declined677 New Highs182 New Lows82 Vol. (in mil.)4,234 Pvs. Volume3,205 2,139 1,808 1836 713 147 33 NYSE NASD DOW 16173.0415808.9216167.97+292.71+1.84%+23.38% DOW Trans.7208.317076.837207.17+87.64+1.23%+35.81% DOW Util.487.23476.05486.91+5.56+1.16%+7.46% NYSE Comp.10155.629949.6610154.18+165.10+1.65%+20.26% NASDAQ4070.383979.594070.06+46.38+1.15%+34.79% S&P5001811.081767.991810.65+29.65+1.66%+26.96% S&P4001314.891289.571314.81+15.57+1.20%+28.85% Wilshire 500019265.2918834.6419261.44+289.82+1.53%+28.45% Russell 20001133.761112.031133.72+14.90+1.33%+33.44% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

European regulators will review the drugmakers cancer treatment in December, according to a meeting agenda posted online. The company responsible for many of the inserts put into newspapers is being acquired for approximately $1.31 billion. The electronics company posted a slim first-quarter profit and then issued a very cautious outlook for the current quarter. Higher prices and increased sales sent the homebuilders quarterly profit up 32 percent, and full-year revenue up 44 percent. The automaker said its pretax profit next year would drop as much as $1.5 billion below a near-record $8.5 billion in 2013. The Federal Reserves decision to begin reducing its bond-buying program next month to $75 billion a month from $85 billion now sent stocks higher Wednesday. The economic stimulus has encouraged borrowing and lending, but also made stocks more attractive. 15 16 17 $18 SD ON Ford MotorF Close: $15.65 -1.05 or -6.3% $11.47$18.02 Vol.: Mkt.

All to the beat of her Diamonds Stocks soar as Fed cuts stimulus, citing jobs Holiday shopping season a disappointment so far Associated PressNEW YORK Sparse crowds at malls and percent off signs at The Gap, AnnTaylor and other stores give a clue as to how the holiday season is going. This is shaping up to be the most discountdriven holiday season since the country was in a deep recession. Its also one of the most disappointing for stores. Sales are up 2 percent to $176.7 billion from the start of the season on Nov. 1 through Sunday, according to data obtained by The Associated Press from store data tracker ShopperTrak. Thats a slower pace than expected given that there are just days left in the season: ShopperTrak is forecasting that sales will rise 2.4 percent to $265 billion for the two-month stretch thats typically the busiest shopping period of the year. The modest growth comes as the amount of discounts that stores are offering this season is up 13 percent from last year the highest level since 2008 when the country was in a recession, according to financial services firm BMO Capital Markets, which tracks 20 clothing stores. The holiday season has been marginal to just OK, said Joel Bines, managing director and co-head of the retail practice at AlixPartners. Retailers are doing anything they can to get rid of merchandise. The data underscores how aggressive discounting has been both a blessing and a curse for retailers. Since the recession, the only way to get Americans into stores has been to flash huge yellow discount signs in front of their faces. But all that discounting has had some unintended consequences. Retailers have learned that shoppers become immune to the deals, so they have to continue to offer bigger discounts to get them to come into stores. That erodes retailers sales since shoppers are spending less. It also eats away at retailers profit margins. Still, analysts say retailers have created a cycle of constant discounting that theyll have to continue in order to attract U.S. shoppers, many of who are still dealing with stagnant wages and rising costs for things like health care. Delta says no calls on planesMINNEAPOLIS Delta Air Lines wont allow passengers to make voice calls from its planes. Right now, federal rules prohibit voice calls on planes. But the government is indicating that it might loosen those rules. If that happens, it could be up to airlines to set their own policies. On Wednesday, Delta went ahead and said, in effect, hang up and enjoy the view from 40,000 feet. CEO Richard Anderson told workers in a memo that the airline will not allow cell calls or internet-based voice communications on mainline or Delta Connection flights, which are operated by other airlines under contract for Delta based on customer and employee preference. Atlanta-based Delta is one of the worlds biggest airlines.UK to issue plastic banknotes in 2016LONDON The Bank of England says it will start issuing plastic bank notes for the first time in its 300-year history. The decision comes after a three-year research program found that plastic notes stay cleaner for longer, are more difficult to counterfeit and last more than twice as long as than cotton paper. The central bank said Wednesday that cash made from polymer, rather than cotton paper, will debut when a new 5 pound ($8) note featuring wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill rolls out in 2016. Bank governor Mark Carney said the polymer notes are the next step in ensuring trust and confidence in money.

OPINION Page A10THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19, 2013 Pray for those who cry in silenceAbuse is a frequently used and heard word with a lot of meaning. When abuse occurs, its permanent, though there may be no physical scars and damages may not be visible. There is no specific age when abuse begins and no age limit for it to cease. Infants to elderly adults are afflicted daily in our society, no matter the lifestyle, financial status, or religious affiliation. As a child who fortunately grew up in a loving, safe home, abuse was foreign to me. I couldnt understand why parents would hurt children; husbands would brutalize their wives; or adult children would abandon their parents. One day, early into a second marriage, I stood in front of the vanity mirror. Staring back at me was someone who was unfamiliar; someone with facial stitches and horrific bruises; someone afraid to leave a dangerous situation. There were always apologies, expensive gifts, promises, and tears that were solely mine. Marriage vows were important and serious to me so I felt lost and alone because this sort of thing wasnt supposed to happen to someone like me. Someone who attended church, loved her kids, had a career, and never knew the ugly reality of physical and emotional abuse. I became an actress and a liar because I was ashamed to admit my fears and helplessness. I was unable to honestly explain the many reconstructive surgeries, frequent bandaging and weeks of not visiting family members. Nine years of hell belong to me, but I was fortunate to finally find the strength to walk away and begin anew. I joined the Navy and became part of the rifle and pistol team, earning my expert medal for life; and through the militarys educational system I became a photojournalist with a lot of inner strength and newfound boldness. Thousands are not able to escape; hundreds lose or take their own lives because of their abuser and this sad story never ends. If you or someone who wonders why those who are mistreated dont just leave, it is because of a broken spirit, loss of self-esteem and absolute fear. There is no cure once damage is inflicted. No one deserves the punishment of abuse. Children shouldnt be hurt; the elderly shouldnt be forgotten; and spousal harm shouldnt happen. Nevertheless, its common. It is Christmas a special time for peace and joy. Pray for your neighbors and friends. Remember the lost and forlorn. Reach out to those afraid and in pain. We must conquer abuse whether we understand it or not. From the heart of one severely damaged victim who survived, to the hearts of my fellow-man, please help stop the tears of those who often cry in silence and desperately need your voice. Thank you.Joanie Welch InvernessRestaurant will be missedFerraras Pizza & Catering will be greatly missed by me and the general public. Good luck and health to Sandy and Sonny. Richard Orzechowski Beverly Hills DOUGLASCOHNANDELEANORCLIFTThe memorial celebration of Nelson Mandelas life drew more than a hundred world leaders, and among them was Raul Castro, president of Cuba and brother of Fidel. Like President Obama, Castro was invited by the Mandela family to deliver a eulogy, and, they were seated along with the other eulogists in the same section of the massive soccer stadium. As Obama made his way to the podium to speak, he shook everyones hand, including Castros. Cameras clicked and flashed, and for some the world stopped as the two presidents briefly clasped hands and exchanged pleasantries before Obama moved on. Florida Republican Ileana Ros Lehtinen, whose family fled from Cuba, called the handshake especially nauseating because it took away attention from the plight of Cuban dissidents. She said she hoped it would not lead to any change in policy by the administration. Senator John McCain, RAriz., went farther, raising the specter of appeasement. Why should you shake hands with someone whos keeping Americans in prison? I mean, whats the point? Neville Chamberlain shook hands with Hitler. Comparisons with Hitler are never wise, and cable news channels ran footage of McCain warmly greeting Libyan dictator Muammar Ghadaffi, who in 1988 had given the order to shoot down an American airliner over Lockerbie, Scotland. Deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes said the handshake was an unplanned encounter, and that no policy shifts should be read into it. He added that the administration has grave concerns about human rights abuses in Cuba. American contractor Alan Gross has been held in Cuba since December 2009, charged and convicted of alleged spying. Gross was working on development assistance for AID, delivering satellite phones and computers to the Jewish community in Cuba. His case has incensed both Cuban-Americans and Jewish Americans. Any issues having to do with Cuba are so politically inflammatory that most politicians steer clear whenever they can. But when you put politics aside and step back, there is no rational reason why the U.S. continues to treat Cuba as a pariah nation. Is Cubas record on human rights worse than Chinas? No, yet we opened up diplomatic relations with China when Richard Nixon was in the White House, and all but the most doctrinaire conservatives applauded President Nixon for his geo-political vision. The phrase Nixon goes to China endures today as a signifier of a bold policy move from an unexpected quarter. When Nixon flew to China, he should have opened the door to Cuba too and let the Cold War dominoes fall. If he had done that, Americans and Cubans today would be interacting the way we do with other people under totalitarian rule. We would talk, visit, and trade while simultaneously working to democratize. Vietnam, a country we fought a war over and where we inflicted such devastation, is now a tourist destination for Americans. It still has a Communist government, and that doesnt seem to bother anyone. Why does Cuba continue to be a remnant of Cold War thinking when weve moved on in so many other ways with China, and with Vietnam? Florida politics is what its all about. If Al Gore hadnt sided with the Cuban government in wanting a young boy named Elian Gonzales returned home after the boat carrying him and his mother capsized, and his mother drowned, Gore might have carried Florida and become president. Obama has run his last campaign for election, and if anyone is in a position to lift the U.S. embargo on Cuba, its Obama. But he cant do it alone; he needs Congress. Obama has eased restrictions on travel, and if relations were normalized, Cubans could freely leave the island, which they are unable to do now. But lifting the embargo would require a change in law, and Congress is of no mind to take that kind of action. Its too bad Nixon didnt act when he had the chance. After all, why China and not Cuba?Douglas Cohn and Eleanor Clift author the Washington Merry-Go-Round column, founded in 1932 by Drew Pearson.

Many probably questioned his One Rake at a Time idea two years ago when he said he and a group of yet-to-benamed volunteers would rid the bay of Lyngbya using rakes, kayaks and a refurbished pontoon boat. His latest project may pick a few skeptics along the way, but were betting on Art Jones. Jones wants to use the soon-tobe-vacant Belk store at the Crystal River Mall to launch an aquarium that would showcase and teach residents and tourists about marine life in Kings Bay and the Nature Coast, with its rivers and inland lakes. Jones plans to include the community in developing design ideas and is planning an open house next month with ambitious plans to have the first phase completed shortly afterward. The plan is to house the aquarium in the 62,000square-foot space that Belk will be vacating on Jan. 1. Jones will use a nonprofit/business partnership model like the one he has for One Rake, which is expected to receive 10 percent of ticket sales. Phase 1 will include several tanks and an exhibition area where people can learn about the effects of pollution and the various measures being undertaken to combat it. Subsequent phases include the addition of a research center and an animal/fish hospital. While the project seems ambitious, we have learned not to doubt the ability of Art Jones to make things happen. If the project comes to fruition, it could go a long way toward mitigating the loss of a major retail outlet in the mall a win for business and the environment in one stroke.

Spending misplacedI am just catching up on the paper after being away for a week and read with great concern the article on Nov. 30 about the desire of some people to create a new National Commemorative Park for Los Alamos. As a former National Park Service park ranger I can speak on this subject with some knowledge. I also have friends and relatives who are still employed with the NPS. For many years most parks have been unable to maintain the level of proficiency that is expected by visitors. Many projects are delayed for years because of a lack of funding. This is not an isolated problem, but agency-wide. Some of the projects I saw approved were still not started three years after being approved. This is common because Congress keeps authorizing new parks, but does not sufficiently fund those already running. Just a few months ago, either Yosemite or Yellowstone had major parts of the parks closed because of a lack of funding. I was taking a motorcycle tour of the entire U.S. 2 1/2 years ago and when entering Yellowstone I was told 90 percent of the park was still closed due to cold weather and most pipes were frozen and they did not have the staff to solve the problem. My only choice then was to drive back to Montana, trying to find a motel. When Palo Alto Battlefield was created by Congress about 15 years ago the local people heard about it and some went to the proposed site with metal detectors and stole everything they could. Some artifacts were sold back to the Park Service all because there was no foresight and there was no money allocated for security until years later, after the fact. I could write a book about this kind of waste. It has been going on for years and may stop with this ridiculous Los Alamos proposal if enough people write to Congress opposing it. I cannot speak for the Park Service, but if a survey was done I am confident most of their management would not approve this proposal in view that so many parks are in dire need of funds for more important maintenance and repairs. Just walk around some of the national parks and you may find it hard to find a park ranger. They used to use a lot of seasonal personnel, but now the trend is to use volunteers due to a lack of funding. Such a shame that we can give billions and billions to foreign countries and another few billion to NASA to waste but we cannot main tain our most treasured assets.Paul L. Atkinson InglisParade of Trees a successThe Gulf to Lakes Pilot Club of Citrus County wishes to express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who helped make our annual Parade of Trees a fabulous success. This is our premier fundraising event which allows our Pilot Club to raise funds to support many local projects: Citrus United Basket (CUB), The Isaiah Foundation (Autism), National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), the Car Seat Safety Program, CREST School, returning military veterans and local assisted-living facilities. In addition, following the event, decorated Christmas trees were donated to the Beverly Hills and Homosassa Boys & Girls Clubs, We Care Food Bank, Herrys Kids Childrens Hospice, Robert Boissonault Oncology Institute Cancer Treatment Room and Citrus Hospice. We wish to thank all of the individuals who participated by donating their time and talent to decorate the 31 magnificent Christmas trees that were displayed at Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church. The decorations get better and more elaborate every year. We thank the businesses and individuals who purchased the decorated trees and/or gala tickets, and supported us by their purchase of raffle tickets and live auction items, as well as those individuals and businesses that donated items for the live and Chinese auctions. Last, but not least, we thank the Citrus County residents who attended our tree viewing and bought raffle tickets. Our tree viewing was a great success and was well-attended. We are proud to say we were able to donate more than 847 pounds of food and three 30-gallon bags full of toys to Citrus United Basket. We could not do that without the support from the local community that supported our efforts with their donations. A special thank you to our local Citrus County residents.

But one must ask, are you still a believer? Do you think he just fudged the truth or do you think he deliberately lied to you about keeping your health plan and doctor to get your vote? Do you trust the fact that all your personal information is entrusted to navigators who were never vested or investigated for criminal backgrounds? Do you trust the fact that the health care site has all your personal information and even the person who runs it would not assure it is secure from hacking and data theft? Do you still believe that the cost of Obamas health care is equal to your monthly cellphone bill? Do you still believe that 13 million people can be added to the health care system at no major cost or impact to you? Do you think health care will be better and cheaper or worse in the future? If you are still a believer at this point, you are truly a solid liberal and someone who maybe even still believes in Santa Claus in your old age. Being trusting and faithful to the party line is a solid factor, but sometimes even the smallest thinkers have to wake up and realize they have been deceived. The continuous flow of news indicates one failure and deception after another. Yet he has yet to take responsibility for anything that has gone down under his watch. He knows nothing and always reads about the problems in the newspaper just like you and me. He has fired none of his political cronies no matter how pitiful their performance has been. No one at the State Department was relieved of their job over Benghazi, no one at the NSA, IRS, or FBI have been relieved of their jobs. It seems no one can do anything wrong in this new, hope-and-change administration. One has to wonder why no one has been fired. Very strange indeed. I am not a believer, nor do I think Obama has done what he said he was going to do, nor do I think he has any intentions of doing any of the things he claims he was going to do. I do know he intends to build a bigger, more powerful federal government that will invade our lives on a daily basis. I know inflation and the devaluation of the U.S. dollar are at hand. I know he has every intention of circumventing the intent of the Second Amendment to the Constitution and will try to confiscate all guns. I know he intends to take from everyone and do a redistribution of the wealth. Im not a Republican nor a Democrat, but rather a citizen seeking the survival of this country. And not as a Socialist country! I do not know how anyone with even the shape of a brain can continue to support this present administration. I will vote for anyone other than those that support his plans and goals. Perhaps it is time to reconsider if what is coming about is really what you thought you were buying when you voted for the new world of Obama? John Cassell Homosassa Call Christmas by its nameMy copy of Websters Dictionary defines holiday as a contraction of holy and day a religious feast day. For those who like to be more up to date, I also looked it up in Wikipedias Etymology which says the word holiday is from the Old English word haligdaeg (halig holy and daeg day). Some stores require their clerks to use happy holiday in the place of Christmas. My suggestion is to go on the offensive instead of defensive and reply, Happy holy day to you, which in this case is Christmas. Merry Christmas.J.

Protest Associated PressState workers protest Wednesday as meetings continued between state employees and the Michigan Civil Service Commission in Lansing, Mich. The commission on Wednesday postponed a decision about whether to impose higher health care costs on tens of thousands of Michigan government workers. Insurers extend premium deadlineWASHINGTON The health insurance industry says consumers will get an extra 10 days to pay their first months premium under President Barack Obamas health care overhaul. With tight deadlines around the holidays, plus lingering problems with federal and state sign-up systems, the voluntary decision Wednesday by the board of Americas Health Insurance Plans does more than give extra time: It also reduces the risk that consumers switching plans could suffer an interruption in coverage due to technology woes. Consumers still must select a plan by Dec. 23 next Monday. But instead of having to pay their first months premium by New Years Eve, they now have until Jan. 10. That would let them get coverage retroactive to Jan. 1.Killer appeared to be on a missionRENO, Nev. Police think a suicidal gunman was on a mission of violence when he calmly entered a third-floor urology office and opened fire with a 12-gauge shotgun, killing one doctor, shooting another and critically wounding a third victim. A witness who was among those the shooter passed in the waiting area where the attack took place told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the man could have killed many more people at the Reno medical complex if that was his intent. Detectives have not been able to establish a motive or relationship between the man who shot the two doctors and the relative of a patient Tuesday before killing himself. Venzo said they have tentatively identified the killer but were withholding his name because theyve been unable to reach his next of kin. Police identified the slain doctor as Charles G. Gholdoian, 46, a urologist at Urology Nevada within the Center for Advanced Medicine on the campus of the Renown Regional Medical Center. In critical condition were a female doctor whose name has not been released and Shawntae Spears, the 20-year-old relative of a patient.Bill gives Obama rare Gitmo victoryWASHINGTON Many detainees at Guantanamo Bay may be closer to heading home under a bipartisan deal reached in Congress that gives President Barack Obama a rare victory in his fight to close the prison. The compromise is part of a broad defense bill awaiting final passage in the Senate this week. Its the first time since Obama came to office promising to close Guantanamo that Congress is moving to ease transfer restrictions instead of strengthening them.

Micheal Makuei Lueth told The Associated Press on Wednesday that some of the victims were shot in the bushes around Juba. He cited a report compiled by the minister of defense. He said up to 700 others had been wounded. He offered no other details, saying he was awaiting more information from the Ministry of Health. The violence appears to pit soldiers loyal to President Salva Kiir against those who are loyal to former Vice President Riek Machar.Russia passes amnesty billMOSCOW Russias parliament on Wednesday passed an amnesty bill that will likely apply to the 30-member crew of a Greenpeace ship detained after an Arctic protest, but it wasnt immediately clear if and when the activists would be allowed to leave the country. The amnesty, which also would likely free the two jailed members of the Pussy Riot punk band, has been largely viewed as the Kremlins attempt to soothe criticism of Russias human rights records ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi in February. Morsi to face new trial on terror chargesCAIRO Egyptian prosecutors on Wednesday announced a new trial of ousted President Mohammed Morsi and the top leaders of his Muslim Brotherhood, accusing them of conspiring with Hamas, Hezbollah, Irans Revolutionary Guard and militant groups to carry out a wave of terrorism to destabilize the country. The charges, which carry a potential death penalty, are the most sweeping and heaviest accusations yet in a series of trials against the Brotherhood. India diplomat in US is transferred to UN missionUNITED NATIONS The Indian diplomat who was strip-searched after her arrest in New York City on visa charges has been transferred to Indias mission to the United Nations, a former colleague said Wednesday. Devyani Khobragade, who was Indias deputy consul general in New York, said she has full diplomatic immunity from prosecution. The State Department disputes that. Khobragade was arrested last week outside of her daughters Manhattan school on charges that she lied on a visa application about how much she paid her housekeeper, an Indian national. Prosecutors said the maid received less than $3 per hour for her work. World BRIEFS From wire reports Ga. woman has 1 of 2 winning lottery tickets Associated PressATLANTA A Georgia woman who bought just one ticket and used family birthdays and lucky No. 7 to choose her numbers was one of two winners of the $636 million Mega Millions jackpot, the secondlargest in U.S. history. Lottery officials in Georgia identified the winner as Ira Curry, of Stone Mountain, which is east of Atlanta. Curry will take a lump sum of $123 million after taxes, Georgia Lottery chief executive Debbie Alford said. She has not decided how shell spend those winnings, Alford said at a news conference that Curry did not attend. The other winning ticket was sold at a gift shop in San Jose, Calif. The winner there has one year to come forward. Curry was driving to work Wednesday when an announcer on the radio talked about the Mega Ball being 7. Curry knew that was her Mega Ball number, so she called her daughter to check the ticket. Between joyful tears and laughter on the daughters part, she relayed to her mother that her mother had won the lottery, Alford said. Alford wouldnt say where Curry worked or how old she was. A person who answered the phone at a listing for Curry said, We are not interested in any publicity, thank you for calling and then hung up. Curry, her husband and other family members came to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize, surprising lottery officials who thought the winner might take some time to get their affairs in order before coming forward. Alford said she didnt think Curry believed she had won until lottery officials congratulated her. She said she was just in a state of disbelief, Alford said. The winning ticket in Georgia was sold at a newsstand in Buckhead, a financial center of Atlanta about 10 miles from Stone Mountain Park. The park features an 825-foot-tall mountain that covers about 1 square mile. There are golf courses, camping, bike and walking trails there as well as a carving depicting Confederate heroes of the Civil War, including Gen. Robert E. Lee. Currys house is just a few miles from the park. A man who answered the door at her home in a neighborhood of brick and stucco houses with manicured lawns also said the family did not want to speak. The two-story home had a two-car garage and a basketball hoop. Air raids exact high toll Associated PressSyrians remove a wounded man from the scene of a government airstrike in Aleppo, Syria. Syrian warplanes dumped explosive-laden barrel bombs over opposition-held parts of the northern city of Aleppo on Wednesday, the fourth day of a relentless offensive to drive rebels out of the contested city, activists said Associated PressBEIRUT In a withering fourday air assault, the Syrian government pummeled opposition-held neighborhoods in the northern city of Aleppo, leveling apartment buildings, flooding hospitals with casualties and killing nearly 200 people. Rebels said the unusually intense airstrikes have prompted civilians to flee to the countryside and could portend a government ground offensive against the opposition-held half of the city, which has been divided for a year and half by grueling fighting. The air campaigns timing five weeks ahead of an international peace conference also suggests that Syrian President Bashar Assad could be trying to strengthen his position on the ground while exposing the oppositions weaknesses before sitting down at the negotiating table. The stakes are high in the battle for Aleppo, Syrias largest city and a former commercial and industrial hub. For the government, wresting back control of the entire city would deal a devastating blow to the rebels morale and throw doubt on the oppositions long-term hold on the vast territory in northern Syria that it has captured over the past two years. Since it began on Sunday, the government air assault has hammered more than a dozen neighborhoods in the rebelheld areas of Aleppo. The campaign has killed at least 189 people and wounded 879, the aid organization Doctors Without Borders said in a statement Wednesday. Many of the air raids have targeted neighborhoods that have seen infighting between moderate rebel factions and extremist al-Qaida-linked opposition groups, said the commander of the moderate Aleppo Swords brigade, who goes by the nom de guerre, Abu Thabet. He declined to give his full name for security reasons. The airstrikes have overwhelmed Aleppos already strapped medical facilities, which are struggling to cope with the influx of casualties and are running out of drugs and medical supplies, Doctors Without Borders said. The impact has been so devastating, in part, because of the governments choice of weapon: helicopters that drop so-called barrel bombs containing hundreds of pounds of explosives and fuel, causing massive damage. Activists have dubbed the bombs barrels of blood because of their deadly effect. Syrian government pummels opposition-held neighborhoods Bipartisan budget agreement clears Congress Associated PressWASHINGTON Congress sent President Barack Obama legislation Wednesday scaling back across-theboard cuts on programs ranging from the Pentagon to the national park system, adding a late dusting of bipartisanship to a year more likely to be remembered for a partial government shutdown and nearperpetual gridlock. Obamas signature was assured on the measure, which lawmakers in both parties and at opposite ends of the Capitol said they hoped would curb budget brinkmanship and prevent more shutdowns in the near future. Its a good first step away from the shortsighted, crisisdriven decisionmaking that has only served to act as a drag on our economy, Obama said of the measure in a statement issued after the vote. And yet, he quickly added, there is much more work to do to ensure our economy works for every working American. The legislation passed the Democratic-controlled Senate on a vote of 64-36, six days after clearing the Republican-run House by a similarly bipartisan margin of 332-94. The product of intensive year-end talks, the measure met the short-term political needs of Republicans, Democrats and the White House. As a result, there was no suspense about the outcome of the vote in the Senate only about fallout in the 2014 elections and, more immediately, its impact on future congressional disputes over spending and the nations debt limit. Im tired of the gridlock and the American people that I talk to, especially from Arkansas, are tired of it as well, said Sen. Mark Pryor, a Democrat who supported the bill yet will have to defend his vote in next years campaign for a new term. His likely Republican rival, Rep. Tom Cotton, voted against the measure last week when it cleared the House. The measure, negotiated by Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., averts $63 billion in across-theboard spending cuts that were themselves the result of an earlier inability of lawmakers and the White House to agree on a sweeping deficit reduction plan. That represents about one-third of the cuts originally ticketed for the 2014 and 2015 budget years and known in Washington as sequestration. Democrats expressed satisfaction that money would be restored for programs like Head Start and President Obamaassured to sign legislation.

Late run lifts Heat past Pacers in showdown Associated PressMIAMI Dwyane Wade scored 32 points, Ray Allen hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with just under a minute left and the Miami Heat erased a 15-point deficit in the second half to beat the Indiana Pacers 97-94 on Wednesday night. LeBron James scored 24 on a bad left ankle for the Heat, who closed within a game of the Eastern Conference-leading Pacers. Chris Bosh added 15 points for Miami, including a 3 that tied it late in the fourth. James set up Allen for the 3 that put Miami in front for good with 59.5 seconds left, capping a 10-0 run. Paul George scored 25 points but missed a 3-pointer that would have tied it with 4 seconds left. David West had 23 and Lance Stephenson added 13 for the Pacers, who have dropped two straight. Down by one, the Pacers saw their best chance go awry when George Hill turned the ball over on a bad pass with 14 seconds left. Allen made two free throws with 10.3 seconds remaining to put Miami up by three, and that capped a big comeback win for the two-time defending NBA champions. Pacers center Roy Hibbert got his fourth foul early in the third, and Indiana coach Frank Vogel opted to leave him in the game. The gamble appeared to backfire 46 seconds later when Hibbert picked up his fifth with 8:34 remaining in the quarter. Hibbert went to the bench but the Pacers didnt miss a beat. George made three free throws after getting hit beyond the arc by Mario Chalmers to put Indiana up 66-51 midway through Making late-season strides Miami QB Tannehill a big reason for surge Associated PressDAVIE Now that Ryan Tannehill has made 30 NFL starts, Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman is wondering why Texas A&M ever played him at receiver. Tannehill switched to quarterback as a junior and started 19 games there for A&M. The Dolphins made him a firstround pick in 2012, and this month hes playing the best football of his brief pro career, which is a big reason theyre mounting a late-season surge toward a playoff berth. Hes a work in progress, Sherman said. He tries to get better every single week. Hes very consistent. But heres a guy that hadnt played a whole lot of major-college football at the quarterback position. I dont know what his head coach was thinking. The second-guessing was accompanied by a grin, because Tannehills coach at A&M was Sherman. Both can laugh now about Tannehills abbreviated receiving career, because more than ever he looks like a keeper at quarterback. During the Dolphins threegame winning streak this month, Tannehills passer rating is 103.2, significantly higher than his career figure of 81.5. He has completed 65 percent of his See TANNEHILL/ Page B3 Breaking down the upcoming bowl games Associated PressThis is it, the final go-round for the BCS. The much-maligned system for determining college footballs national champion will be mothballed after this season, replaced by a four-team playoff next season. As finales go, its hard to argue too much about the final title-game participants. Florida State was the only major-conference team to finish undefeated and Auburn had the best resume of the one-loss teams. Thats the big one, but of course there are 34 other bowls, starting with four on Saturday, that will feature plenty of other good teams, star players and interesting match-ups. To get you ready, weve got a rundown of what to look for:TOP GAMESBCS National Championship, Florida State vs. Auburn, Jan. 6, Pasadena, Calif. Duh. Sugar Bowl, Alabama vs. Oklahoma, Jan. 2, New Orleans. Two storied programs that fell short of their national-title aspirations are still pretty good. Orange Bowl, Ohio State vs. Clemson, Jan. 3, Miami. Teams that are a combined 45-5 since the start of last season and among the highest-scoring in college football. Rose Bowl, Stanford vs. Michigan State, Jan. 1, Pasadena, Calif. If you like smash-mouth, defensiveminded football, this is your game. AdvoCare V100 Bowl, Arizona vs. Boston College, Dec. 31, Shreveport, La. So whats so exciting about two 7-5 teams? Two AllAmerican running backs going at each other: Arizonas KaDeem Carey and BCs Andre Williams.TOP PLAYERSJameis Winston, QB, Florida State. Won the Heisman Trophy, playing for a national championship. Not a bad freshman season. AJ McCarron, QB, Alabama. There will be no three-peat as national champion, but hes been as good a college quarterback as weve seen in a while. C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama. Collects tackles like baseball cards. KaDeem Carey, RB, Arizona. Second nationally in yards per game, runs like hes trying to punish defenders for daring to tackle him. Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M. Last years Heisman winner could be making his last hurrah in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl against Duke. Will Sutton, DT, Arizona State. Arguably the most disruptive interior lineman in the country. Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State. All-American can turn the simplest of routes into a score.ODDSThe folks at Glantz-Culver have made Florida State a decided favorite over Auburn in the national championship game at 8 1/2 points. In the other bowls, the biggest spread is the Fiesta Bowl, where Baylor is a 16 1/2-point favorite over Central Florida. Right behind is the Pinstripe Bowl, with Notre Dame giving away 15 1/2 points to Rutgers. Alabama also is a 15-point favorite over Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl. Tightest odds? San Diego State and Buffalo are a pick em in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl and three other bowls Cotton, New Orleans and Capital One all have 1-point spreads.DISTANCESFlorida State and Auburn will have to make quite a road trip to play for the final BCS championship despite being about 200 miles apart. The Seminoles will cover about 2,200 miles to get to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., and the Tigers have a trip of roughly 2,100 miles to get there. Thats still not the longest road trip to a bowl. That distinction belongs to Boise State, which will travel about 2,800 miles to play Oregon State in the Hawaii Bowl. Central Florida also has a long trip ahead of it before the Fiesta Bowl, needing to go more than 2,100 miles to get from Orlando to Glendale, Ariz. Tulane has the shortest trip, staying in New Orleans for its bowl, but its opponent, Louisiana-Lafayette, doesnt exactly have to go far, traveling about 130 miles for the New Orleans Bowl. Rutgers has a short trip over about 45 minutes across the Hudson River depending on traffic for the Pinstripe Bowl against Notre Dame.NUMBERS13 Years since UNLV played in a bowl game. The Rebels will face North Texas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. 56 Years since Rice had won an outright conference title before taking the Conference USA championship this season. 624.5 Yards of offense per game by Baylor, most in the nation this season by over 50 yards and secondmost alltime to the 624.9 by Houston in 1989. 4,866 Passing yards by Fresno States Derek Carr, which led the nation.Texas Tech will have to deal with Arizona State two-time All-American defensive tackle Will Sutton when the teams battle Dec. 30 in the Holiday Bowl.Associated Press Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron will close out a brilliant career Jan. 2 at the Sugar Bowl against Oklahoma.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE passes in December for 843 yards with eight touchdown passes and only two interceptions. He has thrown for the go-ahead score in the final minutes each of the past two weeks to beat Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady. As a result, the Dolphins (8-6) could clinch the final AFC wild-card berth as soon as Sunday at Buffalo. Most of our success has come from Ryan continuing to develop every single day, receiver Mike Wallace said. Despite an NFL-high 51 sacks, Tannehill hasnt missed a snap this season. Such continuity is a watershed for the Dolphins, who started an NFL-high 17 quarterbacks from 2000 to the beginning of 2012. Tannehills 23 touchdown passes this year are the most in a season by a Miami quarterback other than Dan Marino. At his current pace, Tannehill will also become the first Dolphins quarterback to throw for 4,000 yards since Marino in 1994. Even so, Tannehills statistics have yet to rival the leagues elite QBs. He ranks seventh this year in interceptions, ninth in touchdowns, 10th in yards and 18th in passer rating. He sometimes holds the ball too long, as reflected by his sack total, and has consistently underthrown the speedy Wallace deep, which happened again Sunday in a victory over New England. I think I might be open this year deep more than Ive ever been, Wallace said with a chuckle. Its crazy. Even so, Wallace sings Tannehills praises, as do other teammates and the coaching staff. I like the way hes been playing, said coach Joe Philbin, not one to gush. Hes making good decisions. Usually thats the No. 1 criterion at that position. Since the start of his rookie season, Tannehill has shown an eagerness to learn from mistakes and shrug off success. Hes like our head coach in many ways, Sherman said. He has a very even demeanor. He doesnt get too high, he doesnt get too low, he just takes it all in and moves forward and takes it in stride. Hes excited about winning this last ballgame. But hell file that away, OK, what do we have to do this week? Whats the game plan? Thats just the way he is. Tannehills quick to accept blame when things go wrong and credit teammates when things go right. Lately there has been a lot of credit to share, with Wallace, receiver Brian Hartline, tight end Charles Clay and running back Daniel Thomas all having big games in recent weeks. Guys around me are just helping me out so much, making big plays out of normal plays, Tannehill said. Despite a recent uptick, the Dolphins rank still in the lower half of the league in most offensive categories, and 21st in points. But the patchwork line has blocked better lately, and the two-minute offense has been excellent all year, making Miami tough to put away. Only two of the Dolphins defeats have been by more than four points, while theyve won six times by six points or less. Their pattern has been to keep the game close, then give the ball to Tannehill at the end, a formula that might make them dangerous in the playoffs. We have big things ahead of us, he said. the third, and the Pacers lead was still 14 with 4:17 left in the period. But Norris Coles 3-pointer, Miamis first in 10 tries to that point, started what became a 13-4 Heat run and made it a 76-71 game entering the fourth. Nonetheless, Indiana remained in control, and when West connected with 3:21 left, the Pacers were up 92-85 and seemed well on their way to closing things out. And then the Heat for the first time all night put together a run. The Heat scored the next 10 points Boshs 3-pointer, his first in 15 attempts, tied it at 92. And after George missed in the lane at the other end, James brought the ball the other way and found Allen for a 3-pointer that put the Heat ahead for the first time since the score was 14-13. They didnt trail again. Even though the teams wont see each other again until March, and with the playoffs still 50-something games away, there was clearly a little more meaning to this one. After all, those often-rugged playoff battles that went Miamis way the last two seasons arent going to be forgotten anytime soon. There was the requisite extracurricular activity; Stephenson and Chalmers getting technicals for exchanging unpleasantries, noted Pacers nemesis Udonis Haslem wagging a finger after finding himself in the middle of a heated discussion. But the simple fact that James was playing and Vogel was coaching spoke volumes about how much neither wanted to a take a night off in this rivalry. James was questionable because of a bad ankle, the one he twisted in Mondays win over Utah. Vogel was questionable because of bad spaghetti at least, he thinks thats what caused a quick bout with illness that set in after he dined Tuesday night. By game time, both pronounced themselves ready. Well enough to coach, Vogel said. Said James: I love games like this.

Sarvary, a 6-foot-5, 318-pound lineman, will enroll in January and have two years of eligibility remaining. Sarvary started his college career at Florida A&M in 2012, playing in 11 games as a freshman. He spent this past season at Tyler (Texas) Junior College, where he was a first-team All-Southwest Junior College Football Conference selection. Tyler went 9-2 and won the Football Capital of Kansas Bowl. Sarvary helped pave the way for the Apaches, who averaged 278 yards rushing and 35 touchdowns on the ground. The Gators need help after three offensive linemen transferred last week. Quinteze Williams, Trevon Young and Ian Silberman all left, leaving Florida thin heading into spring practice.Rays INF Beckham undergoes knee surgeryST. PETERSBURG Tampa Bay Rays infielder Tim Beckham is expected to be sidelined six-to-eight months after surgery to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in right knee. The 23-year-old shortstop/second baseman, who made his major league debut in September, was injured during an offseason workout last week. Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery in Pensacola on Tuesday. Minor league pitcher Ryne Stanek had surgery to repair his right hip labrum. He is expected to return in mid-summer. Beckham was the No. 1 pick in the 2008 amateur draft. He hit .276 with four homers and 51 RBIs at Triple-A Durham before appearing in five games with the Rays last season.Meester retiring after 14 seasons with JaguarsJACKSONVILLE Jacksonville Jaguars center Brad Meester is retiring after 14 seasons, walking away with franchise records for games played and started. Meester announced his intentions Wednesday, saying Sundays game against Tennessee will be his home finale. The Jaguars (4-10) end the season at Indianapolis on Dec. 29. A second-round draft pick in 2000, the 36-year-old Meester has played his entire career in Jacksonville. He is the only person to play for every coach in franchise history: Tom Coughlin (200002), Jack Del Rio (2003-11), Mike Mularkey (2012) and Gus Bradley (2013). With Meester in the middle and making all the line calls, the Jaguars became one of the leagues top rushing attacks during his tenure. He has started 207 career games, including the last 88.Seattles CB Browner suspended indefinitelyRENTON, Wash. Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy. The suspension was announced Wednesday and is the second in two seasons for Browner. He was suspended four games last season for violating the leagues policy on performance-enhancing substances. Browner, who was injured in Week 10 against Atlanta and hasnt played since, filed an appeal of the suspension while injured and the Seahawks were waiting for an answer from the league. Browner is in his third season with the Seahawks. He started all 26 games he has played for the Seahawks and has 19 tackles, one interception and 10 passes defensed this season. The suspension likely ends Browners time with the Seahawks. He will become a free agent after the season and could file for reinstatement after one year.Texas most valuable college football teamNEW YORK Forbes magazine rates Texas as the most valuable college football team in the country for the fifth straight year. The magazine values the Longhorns at $139 million, almost 20 percent more than Notre Dame at No. 2. The Irish are valued at $117 million. Alabama rose from sixth to third at $110 million, followed by SEC West rival LSU. Michigan is fifth. Florida (sixth) and Georgia (eighth) give the Southeastern Conference four of the top 10, the most of any conference but down from last year when it had seven of the first 10.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

In last weeks column, I went over some of the negatives about fishing from a paddle craft, and every one of them elicited a response from experienced paddle anglers with a solution. Im going to get to them in a minute, but I want to first suggest that if you want to see what sort of kayaks and accessories are available, check out the Confluence Watersports website at confluence watersports.com. Full disclosure: Our nephew-inlaw, Bill Martin, holds a management position with Confluence; however, Martin has had no input into the content of these kayaking columns, and, in fact, isnt even aware Im writing them. I send you to their website only because it contains many links to various types of kayaks and kayaking accessories all in one place. When you select the link to the Dagger line, be sure to select Kayaking 101 from the menu at the top of the Dagger home page for plenty of useful information. Youll note, by following the links on the Confluence page that there are many types of kayaks from which to choose, some already rigged for angling. If you already have a kayak and want to rig it out, do a search using the criterion, How do I rig my kayak for fishing? or some variation, then step back. That question got 11,600 hits on Bing. One complaint about fishing from a kayak had to do with getting wet from water dripping off the paddles. As I said, preventing it completely is probably impossible, but reader David Zeiher eliminated most of the problem by fashioning two cups by cutting off the cap end of two-liter bottles, sizing the holes to fit tightly on the paddle, with a little silicone glue to hold them in place. He also said pausing for just a second or two after a paddle stroke allows much of the water to run off the paddle and doesnt hinder your progress. Several readers offered help with the anchoring problem. Jim Simon uses an Anchor Trolley System from Bass Pro Shops, and said anyone interested can view it on the Bass Pro website. It does not come with an anchor, and Simon said he uses a one-and-a-halfpound folding grapple anchor, which stows nicely when not in use. Simon also added a couple of cautions. First, he suggests using extreme caution when anchoring in a strong current. It does not take much to tip the kayak when attempting to pull up the anchor, or have the kayak fill up with water. I always suggest folks practice anchoring and weighing the anchor in shallow water, so they know just how much they can safely pull on the anchor rope. As a member of the local Coast Guard Auxiliary, its a given Simon is concerned about safety, and he suggests a handheld GPS (my wife has a Garmin she can wear on her wrist or strap to a rod holder), a portable VHS radio, and of course a life jacket. It has long amazed me how many people have their life vest snugly stored under bungee cords, out of reach behind them. Folks, a life vest is like a parachute; if you arent wearing it the first time you need it, youre not likely to need it ever again. Wear it. Id also like to mention the Coast Guard Auxiliary offers a special paddle boat class. Theresa took it when she got her first kayak and learned quite a bit. Ill wrap this up next week with more comments from readers and a quick roundup of the advantages of paddle angling. Tight Lines to you.Contact Chronicle outdoors columnist RG Schmidt at rgschmidt@ embarqmail.com.

Tide charts Iknow Ive said it thousands of times before, but when it comes to most things outdoors, weve got it pretty good here along the Nature Coast. And when it comes to biking, there arent many other places around the state that can match the range of our local trails. It doesnt matter what type of bike you own, you can find a great place to turn those pedals. And for those who like their rides a little wilder, the seven-mile loop trail at Crystal River Preserve State Park will quickly become one of your favorite off-road spots in the winter months, that is. During the summers, you may want to seek shelter from the mosquitoes by choosing a trail thats a little more inland. Ive tried to ride here when its warm out and been chased away by a winged armada that rivals the ones down in the Everglades. At the trailhead, youll see a sign that proclaims that this is Mosquito Country. Trust me, friends, that sign is telling the truth. Other than that small issue, this ride gets an A-plus for fantastic views and overall experience. The trail is essentially a woods road, which is flat and mostly hardpacked. The loop is marked on the map in a counter-clockwise direction, with plenty of beautiful views of flowing creeks and coastal panoramas. The scenes here are as nice as any that Ive seen around the state, and dont be surprised if you decide to take your time and hang out on one of the trailside benches for a little while. The further you ride around the loop, the wilder things seem to get. The trail enters and exits a canopy of oak, pine and palm along the way as you pass through hammock and swamp habitats. You can really get a feel for the ecological diversity at not only Crystal River Preserve State Park, but throughout our whole region. Depending on how long you sit and take in the views, this ride can take anywhere from two to three hours. I spent a little more than two hours here, and the terrain was smooth enough to never have to change gears. Be warned: The trail can be a little wet at times, so make sure to wear clothing that you dont mind getting a little muddy. Sometimes I live to ride for exercise, and other times Im simply riding to experience a particular place. At Crystal River Preserve State Park, you can do both on the loop trail, but if its your first time, Id recommend dialing things back and taking it all in. Its a wonderful ride in a wonderful place.Kevin Mims is a freelance writer, photographer and videographer based in Citrus County.

From wire reports OutdoorsNEWS Saints must show some road power Sundays game at Carolina could decide NFC South champion Associated PressThe New Orleans Saints likely are headed to the playoffs, and they want as many games as possible to be played at the Superdome. To get any postseason matches in the Big Easy, though, the Saints must find a way to win one on the road. Now. New Orleans (No. 7 in the AP Pro32) travels to Carolina (No. 5, AP Pro32) on Sunday in a matchup basically to decide the division crown. Oh yeah, theres almost certainly a first-round playoff bye at stake given the weakness of the NFC East and North. Saints coach Sean Payton recognizes the need for his team to wake up away from home. New Orleans (10-4) has lost at the Patriots, Jets, Seahawks and Rams this season. Most troubling, the Saints were handled quite easily in their last two road games. Its our job with an important game coming up to make corrections and then also to look closely at whom we are asking to do certain things, Payton said, perhaps threatening some lineup changes. Hearing that concern on the Saints side should be encouraging to fans of the Panthers (10-4), who had an eight-game winning string snapped two weeks ago in New Orleans. They then whipped the Jets while the Saints were falling to the Rams. Carolina is 6-1 at home, the only defeat in the season opener to Seattle merely the leagues best squad right now. Well be at home, which is huge, Panthers tackle Jordan Gross said. The dome is a tough place to play and they were coming off a tough loss, so shame on us if we didnt see that coming. But, were feeling confident again. We never really lost confidence after the last game, but it was definitely a bit of a wakeup call to go down there and lose like we did. The Panthers, 3-point favorites, will win this time. PANTHERS, 27-22 No. 30 Oakland (plus 10) at No. 16 San Diego Chargers showing lots of life. Not so for Raiders. BEST BET: CHARGERS, 37-13 No. 19 Dallas (minus 3) at No. 31 Washington We know, this makes no sense. Neither does anything Cowboys do. UPSET SPECIAL: REDSKINS, 33-31 No. 10 Arizona (plus 10 1/2) at No. 1 Seattle Seahawks clinch division and home field for NFC playoffs. SEAHAWKS, 23-17 No. 12 Chicago (plus 3) at No. 13 Philadelphia Eagles will pay more attention this week after Minnesota debacle. EAGLES, 30-24 No. 29 Atlanta (plus 12) at No. 3 San Francisco, Monday night Niners seem to be finding their rhythm. 49ERS, 30-16 No. 9 Indianapolis (plus 6 1/2) at No. 4 Kansas City Ditto for Chiefs. Could be wildcard preview. CHIEFS, 28-20 No. 26 New York Giants (plus 9) at No. 17 Detroit Do Giants have anything left? Just enough to cover. LIONS, 24-17 No. 2 Denver (minus 10 1/2) at No. 32 Houston Texans have proven they have nothing left. BRONCOS, 40-20 No. 22 Tennessee (minus 5 1/2) at No. 28 Jacksonville Too high a spread, though visitors should win. TITANS, 20-16 No. 14 Miami (minus 2 1/2) at No. 23 Buffalo Dolphins continue playoff push, still need help. DOLPHINS, 20-16 No. 25 Tampa Bay (plus 5 1/2) at No. 18 St. Louis Rams are best last-place team in league, for what its worth. RAMS, 23-10 No. 24 Minnesota (plus 7) at No. 8 Cincinnati Bengals unbeaten at home, stay that way. BENGALS, 26-13 No. 6 New England (plus 2 1/2) at No. 11 Baltimore Just a hunch Ravens will win without a 61-yard field goal.

JETS, 20-13 No. 20 Pittsburgh (OFF) at No. 15 Green Bay Packers believe they can steal NFC North. They just might. PACKERS, 27-21 Associated PressNew Orleans quarterback Drew Brees got roughed up Sunday in St. Louis during a 27-16 loss to the Rams. The Saints look to end their road woes this weekend in a key NFC South battle at the Carolina Panthers. The winner has the inside track for the division title.

Take care to not beat in any extra air, but to scrape down the bowl thoroughly to avoid any lumps. Add the granulated sugar and beat again, scraping the bowl thoroughly. Add the eggs one at a time, again incorporating gently, but thoroughly scraping the bowl. Scrape in the seeds from the vanilla bean or add the vanilla extract. Stir in the bittersweet chocolate. Pour the batter into the prepared pan over the crust. Tap the pan gently on the counter to eliminate any air bubbles. Place the pan into a larger roasting pan. Pour enough boiling water into the roasting pan, taking care not to get any into the cheesecake, to come halfway up the sides of the cake. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until just barely jiggly at the center. Turn off the oven and prop the door open with a spoon. Allow to cool for 2 hours. Remove the pan from the oven and refrigerate until completely cold, at least 4 hours. When ready to unmold the cheesecake, run a paring knife around the edge. Dip just the bottom of the pan in hot water for 1 minute to loosen the crust. Place a large plate over the top of the pan, then flip the pan over so that the cheesecake is upside down. The cake should release onto the plate. Remove the parchment from the crust and place a serving platter over it. Flip the cake a second time to end with the cheesecake right side up. Microwave the red currant jelly for 1 minute and stir until smooth. Spread evenly over the top of the cheesecake. Garnish the edges with chopped pistachios.

Gentle readers may recall this is the one week every year we skip the wine topics and instead explore a bit of Christmas trivia. 1. Germans made the first artificial Christmas trees out of dyed goose feathers. 2. Each year more than 3 billion Christmas cards are sent in the United States alone. 3. All the gifts in the Twelve Days of Christmas song add up to 364 presents. In A.D. 350, Pope Julius I, proclaimed Dec. 25 the official date for the birthday of Christ. 4. The Guinness record book credits Seattle, Wash., with the tallest Christmas tree ever cut at 221 feet, displayed in 1950. 5. The worlds largest stocking measured almost 107 feet long and 49 feet wide, filled with 1,000 presents, made by the Childrens Society in London, England. 6. Christmas trees in the United States have been sold since 1850. Most are 15 years old when cut. 7. Santas reindeer have male names Blitzen, Comet, Cupid, etc. but male reindeer shed their antlers around Christmastime, so Santas deer are likely female. 8. Alabama was the first state to officially recognize Christmas in 1836; Oklahoma was the last in 1907. Christmas did not become a federal holiday in the United States until 1870. 9. Ancient druids considered the kissing plant mistletoe sacred because it seems to remain green all winter. They believed it cured infertility and warded off evil spirits. It was this type of evergreen (old English word aefie) that eventually led to a Christianized Christmas tree. 10. The Puritans viewed Christmas as a decadent Catholic holiday and banned all Christmas celebrations, punishable by a five-shilling penalty, from 1659 to 1681. Bah humbug on them. 11. The friendly poinsettia is native to Mexico. For the Aztecs, the brilliant red color symbolized purity. It is not poisonous, but holly berries are. 12. Santa Claus is based on a real person, St. Nikolaos of Myra, also known as Nikolaos the Wonderworker. He is the worlds most popular non-Biblical saint. He is the patron saint of pirating, butchering, sailing, orphans, royalty, baking, pawnbrokery and New York City. 13. Wassail comes from Old Norse ves heill, meaning good health. 14. There are two competing claims as to which president first placed a Christmas tree in the White House. Some say it was Franklin Pierce in 1856; others attribute it to Benjamin Harrison in 1889. Silent Cal Coolidge started the lighting ceremony in 1923. 15. White Christmas by Irving Berlin is the bestselling single of all time, with more than 100 million sales wordwide. It is my favorite movie. 16. There are about 21,000 Christmas tree farms in the United States, with a total amount estimated at 400 million. The first printed reference to a Christmas tree was in 1531 in Germany. 17. About 30 million to 35 million live Christmas trees are sold yearly in the United States. The earliest decorations were believed to be apples. Medieval actors used this fruit to decorate fir trees during paradise plays depicting Adam and Eves creation and fall. 18. The first Christmas card is attributed to a British illustrator, John Horsley (1817 to 1903). 19. Christmas purchases in the United States account for one-sixth of all retail sales. 20. Finally, the statisticians at UNICEF worked out the following: There are 2,106 million children under 18 in the world. If there are an average of 2.5 children per household, Santa would need to make 842 million stops on Christmas Eve, traveling 221 million miles. To reach all 842 million stops, he would have to travel between houses in 2 ten-thousandths of a second; to do so he would have to accelerate 12.19 million miles per second at each stop. Such force would reduce Santa Claus to chunky salsa.Ron Drinkhouse was a buyer and seller of wines in his native Connecticut. He welcomes inquiries, and can be reached via email at ronoct9@aol.com or via telephone at 352-445-0328. Ron DrinkhouseWINES N SUCH Oh my! Looking at the calendar, Christmas is only 13 days away. It seems such a short time between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas this year. The year 2013 went so fast, although it seems every year does. We are having very cold single-digit temperatures this week. We also have several inches of show, so it gives a person the holiday spirit. Benjamin, 14, and Joseph, 11, built a sled and they are patiently waiting for a big snow so the ponies can pull this sled around. We have enough snow for the children to slide down the hill with the boughten sleds, but this homemade one is a bit too heavy for that. I hope for their sake it will provide hours of fun once the big snow arrives. The boys are at the age where they like to build things. They use scrap pieces of wood Joe has and his tools. It can get a little frustrating for my husband Joe when they use his tools and not always put them back where they belong. Im glad they take an interest in trying to build new things. They both have tools on their own Christmas lists. Having their own set of tools would be nice so that Joes tools would stay where they belong, I suppose. I think when we go shopping we should take that into consideration. Kevin, 8, on the other hand, isnt into tools so much yet. He goes through one notebook after another, writing stories. Im glad I bought some when they were on sale. One night he was reading me a story that he wrote. It was about a trip he took to the mountains and shot a big mountain lion that was about to attack his dad. Then he goes on to explain what a big gun he used to shoot it. And he explains how hard it was to drag it home. He has a big imagination. Sometimes while Im getting supper hell sit by the kitchen table asking how to spell words for his story. Although it can be a bit time-consuming, I am so glad he takes such an interest in learning. I think all our children like writing stories, so thats a lot of times what they will do in their free time. Verena is now 16. We will have cake and ice cream to celebrate her birthday tomorrow night. She also likes hot wings, so that will be one thing on the menu. Hopefully itll warm up so it wont be too cold to put them on the grill. We have all the winter clothes clutter around now. Lovina and Kevin were digging out snow pants, hats, gloves, boots, scarves, etc. last night. I hope everyone is staying healthy during these cold days. May God bless each of you! Try these soft monster cookies over the holidays. What I like about them is you can put them in pans and make bars instead if youre in a hurry.

C6THURSDAY, DECEMBER19, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Henry Labouchere, an English member of Parliamentwho died in 1912, said, I dont object to Gladstone always having the ace of trumps up his sleeve, but merely to his belief that the Almighty put it there. This week, we are looking at slam bidding. Yesterday, I pointed out that there are deals in which Blackwood will not help. However, if you wish to find out if partner has the trump ace, you will need Blackwood. In todays deal, South opens one spade and North responds two no-trump, the Jacoby Forcing Raise, showing four or more spades and at least game-going values. First, South cannot use Blackwood, because he has two immediate diamond losers. And since South does not have a singleton, he announces his point-count. Four spades would be a minimum, three no-trump a middling hand, and three spades a maximum. (South has only high-card 16 points, but his hand contains so few losers.) Now North might raise to four spades because he has a minimum. But it is reasonable to control-bid (cue-bid) four diamonds. Then South employs Blackwood before signing off in six spades. West leads the diamond king. If declarer plays a trump at trick two, he will go down, the defenders getting the spade ace and diamond queen. South has to eliminate his diamond loser immediately. To do that, declarer has to take three heart tricks. He plays a heart to his ace, leads a heart to dummys jack, discards his last diamond on the heart king, plays a trump and claims.

Im attracted to transsexuals well, one in particular but Im not gay. Some of the transsexuals Ive spoken to dont look as if they are male at all. They easily could pass for female since birth. I dont want my family to think Im gay, because Im not. How do I tell them? Pennsylvania Pete Dear Pete: A transsexual is someone who has undergone the physical and emotional transformation from one gender to another. It is not a simple process. It requires surgery, hormones and counseling. A male who has become female is now female. She isnt some guy temporarily masquerading as a woman. And she is entitled to have a romantic life, the same as any other woman. There is no reason for you to broadcast her prior history to anyone. Of course, if the only reason you are involved with her is because you find her background exotic or you are turned on by the fact that she used to be male, that is a different psychological issue and one you might want to examine closely. Dear Annie: When my mother-in-law was still living, I always helped her organize the holiday meals. After she died, I began doing it myself. I always plan a nice dinner. Now I am having a hard time wanting to get together with my family. I have adult grandchildren, one of whom is already married. I get no assistance from any of them. Its just something they expect me to do. No one helps with the cooking or cleaning up afterward. They all wait until the last minute to arrive and sit around while I get everything on the table. After the meal, they go downstairs to chat while I am stuck with the kitchen cleanup. I am tired, and I feel used. How can these adults not see the need to respect and appreciate all the times I have done this? My younger grandchildren enjoy the family get-togethers and dont understand why I am not enthusiastic about them. How do I handle this? Tired of Doing All the Holiday Planning Dear Tired: You have to tell them. For years, you have done all the work and asked for nothing. Youve trained them to think this is OK. They may even believe that you prefer it this way. So speak up. Let them know they are expected to contribute by helping with the cooking, setting the table and cleaning up afterward. They can chat while washing dishes. Assign specific duties to each person, and include the younger grandchildren so they learn that family meals are a group responsibility. If your children and grandchildren refuse to pitch in, inform them that you will no longer host these gatherings because it is too much work for you. You deserve a rest. Dear Annie: I could relate to the letter from Mom from Montana, whose new daughter-in-law was angry about the dress she wore to the wedding. I agree with you that the bride is just looking for an excuse to cut off contact. Our daughter-in-law of 18 years acts the same way. It doesnt matter what we do to please her it is never right. Weve held our tongues and have continued to be gracious, hoping she will mature, but it hasnt happened. We were ignored at the childrens baptisms and birthdays. Our son sees all of this, but he is caught in the middle, and we dont want to make it worse for him. We were tempted to cut off our daughter-in-law from birthday and Christmas gifts, but didnt want to stoop to her level. I would suggest that Montana continue to be kind to her sons wife, but start inviting him to stop by. When our son visits without his wife, we have a wonderful time.
