LASKO/For the ChronicleTravis Dukeman, dressed as Max the Dog from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, throws candy for the children enjoying the Inverness Christmas Parade. Travis, who is a huge Christmas fan and developmentally disabled, was on the team that staffed the float from the Rustic Ranch restaurant at the Dec. 14 parade. NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerHOMOSASSAIn Travis Dukemans world, every day is Christmas and Halloween, Scooby Doo and Disney. Although complications from a surgery when he was 9 months old left him brain damaged from oxygen deprivation, it also left him with a tremendous capacity for wonder and simple pleasures and wide-eyed dreams. For the past 15 years, Travis has had one dream: to be in a Christmas parade. This year, his dream came true. As a special guest on the Grinch-themed float from the Rustic Ranch in Inverness for the Inverness Christmas Parade, 20-year-oldTravis Dukeman got to be Max the Dog and wave to spectators lining the street and not even a little rain could dampen his joy. From his home in Homosassa, with mom Trish Dukeman nearby, Travis spoke in short, simple sentences about his love of parades and Christmas. But first he explained about Scooby Doo. Hes my favorite character, he said. Its my favorite show. He can do a Scooby imitation, Ruht row. (Scooby talk for Uh-oh.) Travis got a Scooby Doo costume about four years ago for Halloween every year he starts around May searching online for the perfect costume. When he learned that he was to be Max the Dog in the Christmas parade, he and his mom did a little ear surgery on his Scooby costume, turning its pointy ears into Maxs big floppy ones. His sister-in-law was the one who got him on the Rustic Ranch float, and when she gave him the news, his face could barely contain his smile. He admitted to being nervous the morning of the parade. Its one thing to stand on the curb and watch; its quite another to actually be a part. He spends a lot of time on the computer watching YouTube videos of Christmas parades any Christmas parade, Mrs. Dukeman said.

Not far from where the Boston Massacre helped sow the seeds for the Revolutionary War, David Dyer points toward the underpass where hed score crack cocaine by day and the train depot where hed sleep some nights.

In January, Port Director Brad Thorpe responded to criticism about taxpayers funding his training in a certified port director program in New Orleans, La., by footing the bill himself. I will personally front all costs associated with this trip pending the final outcome of the port feasibility study, Thorpe told the Citrus County Port Authority. In the event that the Will Port Citrus float? County mulls its options See PORT/ Page A5 See VETS/ Page A7 Associated PressST. LOUIS The crowd was small for a Christmastime church service, the atmosphere quiet and solemn. There were no joyous carols, no children dressed as nativity characters, no festive decorations. About two dozen people gathered Monday night for a Blue Christmas service at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown St. Louis. Its among many nationwide providing a special service aimed directly at those in need of spiritual healing whether due to divorce, tough economic times, the loss of a loved one or whatever has them feeling down at the holidays. Charles Brown, 35, is still grieving the loss of his mother, who died in June of congestive heart failure. After Mondays service, Brown stuck around to be anointed with oil and for private words of healing from one of the pastors. He told me God is with me, God will bless me, Brown said. I feel like this was a chance to lay my burden down. It gave me comfort. The holiday services are often called Blue Christmas or Longest Night, and typically held on or around the winter solstice, right before Christmas. The first Blue Christmas service was believed to have been performed in British Columbia in 1987. Taylor Burton-Edwards, director of worship resources for the General Board of Discipleship of the United Methodist Church in Nashville, Tenn., said the movement has picked up steam in recent years perhaps due in part to the economic downturn. Blue Christmas services offer help to hurting More churches making special efforts to reach out during holiday season See BLUE/ Page A2

Part of it is a recognition that both the culture and even the church, at this time of year, can tend to completely overlook suffering, Burton-Edwards said. Everybody is supposed to be cheery and happy and all of that, and yet that isnt the case for some people. Christ Church Cathedral has offered Blue Christmas services for the past four holiday seasons. The church was lit mostly by candles. There was no sermon, instead it was a mix of scripture with healing words, quiet songs, prayers and the lighting of eight candles, each on behalf of particular struggles: Pain and illness, financial problems, broken families, addiction. Blue Christmas services arent tied to any particular denomination. In Jeffersonville, Ind., several churches come together each year. The Rev. Don Summerfield of First Presbyterian Church said the crowds there tend to be small, but the healing is clear. We had a guy drive 45 miles to the service, Summerfield said. He just said he needed something like that.A2WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER25, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000GXVN 352-795-2665 State Certified CACO10415 Happy Holidays Happy Holidays It is our pleasure to keep you comfortable throughout the year!

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Group making thunder about POW A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThis is the fifth Christmas U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is spending away from his family and in captivity as the only known American prisoner of war. And, a local group is part of the national chorus to bring Bergdahl home. Bergdahl was taken prisoner in Afghanistan by the Taliban on June 30, 2009, and is believed to be held in the tribal areas of Pakistan or southern Afghanistan. They have let a lot of Taliban go from Guantanamo Bay, but no one has bothered to exchange Bowe Bergdahl for one of them. I think that is appalling, said Archie Gooding, president of a local chapter of Rolling Thunder. Gooding and Cynthia Holden, also a Rolling Thunder member, spoke before the ChronicleEditorial Board to help spread the word about Bergdahls plight and urge people to contact their representatives to help bring him home. No family should have to deal with what the family of Bergdahl has been dealing with for more than four years now, Holden said. Bergdahl, who is from Idaho, has been the subject of an ongoing national campaign to have him released from the custody of his captors. Gooding said he hopes Bergdahl does not become part of a long cruel tradition of 83,000 POWs who remain unaccounted for dating back to World War I. We know he is alive and we are trying to do everything we can to bring Bowe back, alive, Gooding said. Rolling Thunder is a national organization of veterans who ride motorcycles and Gooding said their mission is to help bring home American veterans from all the wars. To help or for more information, call Holden at 352628-6481 or email her at Cyn2719@yahoo.com. Bowe BergdahlU.S. Army sergeant was taken prisoner by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Our mission is to promote and provide a wide variety of social and support services to the community through our programs, dedicated staff and volunteers while providing access to quality information, resources and services to enrich the lives of our community, Engelken said, as she thanked all the staff members for their achievements and urged them to look forward to the challenges ahead.

Extension Services assisted 1,112 commercial clients. It had 5,100 educational program participants, 7,898 diagnostic responses and published 94 educational newspaper articles. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleDuring 2013, the Citrus County Transportation Division expanded the deviated-fixed route bus service, adding four new routes that gave riders access to all corners of the county and opened a new transit center. These were two of the many achievements for the year within the Community Services Department. Community Services oversees housing, transportation, veterans affairs Grinch steals familys Christmas presents, puppy PATFAHERY Staff writerTo help get through the busy holiday season, UPS used golf carts with trailers in some areas. including parts of Crystal River. UPS is always exploring ways to improve its efficiency and reduce its environmental impact, company spokesperson Laurie Mallis said. We have found that in some residential neighborhoods, depending on the flow of holiday package volume, it makes sense for UPS to use golf carts for deliveries. A good example of this is retirement communities. UPS uses golf carts in central and west Florida during peak holiday season. She said the environmental benefit to the community includes reduced noise and fuel conservation. Associated PressTAMPA This Grinch was a mean one. Police say burglars broke into a Florida womans home, stole her two childrens gifts from under the tree and snatched the familys puppy. Melody Russell, a 33-year-old property manager, said the thieves broke in to her home northeast of downtown Tampa while she was at work Monday. She came home to find the back door open, all presents under the tree gone and Honey, their 12-week-old Shih Tzu, missing. Her two children, 7-year-old Marissa and 5-year-old Marcus, were at her sisters home when the burglary happened. Marissa cried for a half hour when Russell broke the news about Honey. My kids are so in love with that puppy, she said. The white and tan puppy did not yet have a microchip, Russell said. Russell said she had bought a handful of modest gifts for each of her children Nerf guns and slippers and Ninja turtle toys. Typical Christmas stuff, said Russell, who is a single mother. Nothing extravagant. Tampa Police are investigating the case and they also tried to save Christmas for the Russell family. Russell said that after the officers wrote their reports and processed the crime scene at her home, she sat in the living room, praying to God for strength. It was 1 a.m. on Christmas Eve, she said, and the phone rang. It was a Tampa Police officer, telling her that he and his entire squad were coming to her house with gifts. When police dispatchers and Squad 204 heard about the theft, they quickly chipped in to buy Marissa and Marcus presents. Every single one of them had gifts in their hands, Russell said. I was so in shock. PAT FAHERTY/ChronicleA UPS driver parks a cart for the night at a storage location off North Meadowcrest Boulevard. Golf carts deliver packages Year in REVIEW

For a time, it looked like the Jimmy Stewart Museum wasnt going to make it. Its in the actors Pennsylvania hometown of Indiana an hours drive from Pittsburgh and off the radar of many fans who might want to attend. And the pool of fans is shrinking as those who grew up during the era of Stewarts films die out. The number of tour buses that made special trips to the museum began to decline in 2009 and 2010, said Timothy Harley, the museums director. The situation became very dire. That caused some pretty considerable concern, he said. But the outlook has improved, at least of the next few years he said, thanks to loyal fans who began sending donations as the word got out about the plight of the museum. It turned out that many people still had warm feelings for the star of Its a Wonderful Life, the 1947 Christmas classic that featured Stewart considering suicide, but being talked out of it by a guardian angel named Clarence. The donations ranged from small to substantial, Harley said. One was in an envelope containing a single dollar bill and a return address of Clarence. And last year, Ken and Carol Schultz, a San Diego couple originally from western Pennsylvania, began making yearly $25,000 donations, which matches what the Stewart family gives. Harley said the donations have stabilized funding problems for the small museum with a limited staff and budget. But theyre not a long-term fix, he said. The museum isnt fancy, which is partly why Stewart gave his blessing to the project before he died in 1997. Its full of displays not just about movies, but about Stewarts service as a bomber pilot in World War II, his well-to-do ancestors, and his family life. Stewart flew more than 20 combat missions over Europe even though he was initially too thin to qualify for the military. Harley said Stewarts no-nonsense military service resonates with many young people who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan. Stewart was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, The Air Medal, and the French Croix de Guerre, and by the time the war was over, he had risen from private to the rank of colonel. Pauline Simms, president of the museums board of directors, said the displays that go beyond Hollywood are part of the attraction. The museum isnt just about the man, its about the whole era. If fact, its why some people come, said Simms, a native of the town who remembers getting Stewarts autograph at the end of World War II. Still, theres plenty in the museum to satisfy movie fans. Harley notes that Stewart didnt just play the nice guy in some early films. He played the heavy or the gangster in some of the 1930s films, Harley said, and the museum has dozens of movie posters on display.

Associated PressORLANDO An advocacy group has taken issue with SeaWorlds defense of its treatment of killer whales. The Oceanic Preservation Society issued a rebuttal to full-page ads that SeaWorld took out in seven newspapers last week, defending its record with killer whales. SeaWorld took out the ads after eight recording artists withdrew from a concert series at its Orlando park in February. The SeaWorld ads said that the marine park company hasnt taken a wild killer whale into captivity for 35 years due to its successful breeding program. It also said that SeaWorld doesnt separate killer whale mothers and calves and that the company has invested $70 million over the past three years in its parks killer whale habitats. The society said no amount of money can recreate an orcas natural environment, and disputed SeaWorlds claim it has contributed to research on killer whales. said study deems Port Citrus to be feasible, I will seek reimbursement for these expenses. The training program cost a reported $4,300, about one-tenth of another cost arising from a claim for payment of legal fees that languished almost all year. It, too, was still on the table in January, following a legal case from 2012, when Inverness resident Bob Schweickert Jr. challenged the selection method for the consultant who conducted the Port Citrus feasibility study. The complaint was cured in November 2012 when the port authority repeated the selection process with a public vote count. But Schweickerts attorney, Jonathan D. Kaney Jr., asked for the port authority to pay his legal fees. Then-Port Attorney Richard Wesch maintained in January that no conclusion had been reached about whether the port authority would be required to pay Kaneys fees. The port authority made up of county commissioners with the county administrator serving as director authorized TranSystems Corp. in January to start the feasibility study. For nearly two years, the port authority had tried to get to this initial stage of the study to determine if a commercial seaport could be developed along the former Cross Florida Barge Canal site in the northwest section of the county.The area is now called the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway. TranSystems offered a three-phase project with costs budgeted at each phase: $20,000; $30,000 and $50,000. Half the funding for the $100,000 study came from the Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic Development (FSTED). The other half was met with funds from CLM Workforce Connection, Citrus County business license fees, Citrus County Economic Development Council and the port authority. In June, TranSystems presented the first phase, which determined the Port Citrus concept was economically viable and could go forward for conducting the second and third phases of the study. The second phase identified funding sources and made preliminary applications for funding. The third phase refined market analysis to identify potential market opportunities and port customers. It also prepared the preliminary port development plan to recommend the ports location and the development of infrastructure. In October, TranSystems Corp. Vice President Rick Ferrin presented the completed feasibility study, saying the port authority should take a hands-off approach and provide infrastructure, but only after a company commits to building a barge shipping terminal. You do everything but operate the port terminals, Ferrin said. The port does what the port does best. The terminal operators do what they do best. The report said the barge canal is limited to a barge port because of its 13-foot depth. A better location, it said, is the canal that serves the nearby Duke Energy plant. Duke also has direct rail access, another significant plus for a port development. Duke, however, has shown little interest in joining Citrus County in developing a public port. The report encouraged the county and Duke to continue talks. The report said the best uses for a Port Citrus are materials manufactured on site and then shipped out. It gave as examples cement artificial reef manufacturers or a wood-chip processor. Citrus County does not own any of the land that borders the barge canal. The report said a terminal developer would need to lease or buy property. Thorpe said he would recommend the port authority seek requests for interest from companies to build and operate a terminal at Port Citrus. Also in October, Wesch left county government service. Before he left, Wesch conducted a closed session with the port authority board regarding the next move in the case about paying Kaneys legal fees. A court had ruled in Kaneys favor, so the board was to decide whether to pay the fees or appeal. In December, the board agreed to pay Kaney the sum of $44,000 to settle the case. However, an attorney representing Citrus Mining and Timber, a company owned by Dixie Hollins, asked the board to make the payment to Schweickert rather than Kaney, saying that Schweickert was involved in a bankruptcy case and the fees should be considered an asset for the bankruptcy court for allocation to creditors. Schweickert had lost a previous legal action unrelated to Port Citrus that led to Hollins attorneys being awarded legal fees that Schweickert could not pay. Current Port Authority Attorney Kerry Parsons said the board should go ahead with settling the case by paying Kaney. As the year ended, Schweickert still had another legal case pending against the port authority as a constitutional challenge to the way Port Citrus got its state designation. In 2011, Port Citrus was added as the 18th member of the FSTED Council under a general law. Schweickert said the port designation should have gone through a special law process with public hearings and a referendum. He said Monday the case would be heard in February.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER25, 2013 A5 Wishing You A Merry Christmas Wishing You A Merry Christmas And A And A Happy Happy New New Year!

Associated PressTAMPA Col. David Parrish ran Hillsborough Countys jails for more than a quarter century. Now hes retired. In his current role, inmates never face the threat of a Taser. Instead, they are baked and iced. This time of year, the former jailer makes gingerbread cookies and decorates some of them like prisoners, each with black-and-white icing stripes. Some are blond with blue eyes; others, red-headed or brunet. Tiny bells dangle from ankle chains. You gotta understand, he explains. I only give them to people that work in the corrections business. Otherwise, people would go, Thats really weird. He admits hes a little warped. I spent my whole adult life in jail, said Parrish, 67. He has plenty of likeminded friends who eat cookies. He travels the country as a corrections expert, having long ago overseen the evolution of Hillsborough jail cells to dormitory settings. He baked even before his 2008 retirement. Hes been at it for nearly two decades. He started off wanting to treat the toll takers he saw each day on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway on trips between the Orient Road jail, where he worked, and the Ybor City headquarters for the sheriffs office. I dug out my mothers old recipe for making gingerbread men when I was a little kid. She used to make giant gingerbread men about 10 inches tall. We were all allowed to have one appendage before breakfast. In the old days, his mother, Ruth Tia Parrish, cut gingerbread using a cardboard pattern. Parrish uses a giant cookie cutter. Mrs. Parrish baked with Crisco. Parrish substitutes butter. In a typical year, he goes through 25 pounds of flour. His wife lends a hand. She measures out all the spices and the egg and the hot water and all that stuff, and that takes all the thinking out of it. All I have to do is throw in 6 cups of flour and a cup of sugar and she brings over the butter warmed up and I throw it all together and we got a real production. He bought an extra oven rack to accommodate inmate overcrowding. Baking sheets hold only two large gingerbread people at a time. He makes 100 to 150, some small. Billy Covington, 88INVERNESSBilly R.

Astronauts complete rare Christmas Eve spacewalk Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL Space station astronauts repaired a crippled cooling system during a rare Christmas Eve spacewalk Tuesday, braving a mini blizzard of noxious ammonia as they popped in a new pump. It was the second spacewalk in four days for U.S. astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Michael Hopkins, and only the second Christmas Eve spacewalk ever. NASA ordered up the spacewalks to revive a critical cooling loop at the International Space Station. All nonessential equipment had to be turned off when the line conked out Dec. 11, and many science experiments halted. With Tuesdays success, the cooling system should be restored and all equipment back up and running by this weekend, according to NASA. Its the best Christmas ever, Mission Control radioed as the 7 1/2-hour spacewalk came to a close. Merry Christmas to everybody, replied Hopkins. It took a couple weeks to get her done, but we got it. Mastracchio and Hopkins removed the faulty ammonia pump during Saturdays spacewalk. On Tuesday, they installed the fresh pump. Standing on the end of the stations main robotic arm, Hopkins clutched the 780-pound, refrigerator-size pump with both hands as he headed toward its installation spot, and then slid it in. An astronaut working inside, Japans Koichi Wakata, gingerly steered the arm and its precious load. Mike Hopkins taking a special sleigh ride on this Christmas Eve, Mission Control commentator Rob Navias said as the space station soared over the Pacific. It was slow going because of a balky ammonia fluid line that sent frozen flakes of the extremely toxic substance straight at the men a mini blizzard, as Mission Control called it. The spacewalkers reported being surrounded by big chunks of the stuff that bounced off equipment and, in all probability, their suits. The ammonia needed to dissipate from their suits before the pair returned inside, to avoid further contamination. Wow, Hopkins sighed after the fourth and final fluid line was hooked to the new pump. The electrical hookups went more smoothly, and six hours into the spacewalk, Hopkins finally called down, Houston, youve got yourself a new pump module. Christmas references filled the radio waves as the action unfolded 260 miles above the planet. Its like Christmas morning opening up a little present here, Mastracchio said as he checked his toolkit. Later, as he worked to remove the spare pump from its storage shelf, he commented: Now it really feels like Im unwrapping a present. Mission Control in Houston was in a festive mood, despite the gravity of the situation. Tabletop Christmas trees, Santa dolls and red Santa caps decorated the desks. NASAs only previous Christmas Eve spacewalk occurred in 1999 during a Hubble Space Telescope repair mission. But NASAs most memorable Christmas Eve was back on Dec. 24, 1968. Apollo 8 astronauts read from Genesis, the first book of the Bible, as they orbited the moon on mankinds first lunar flight. A bad valve in the ammonia pump caused the latest breakdown. Another team of spacewalking astronauts installed that pump just three years ago, and engineers are perplexed as to why it didnt last longer. NASA hopes to salvage it in the years ahead.

to get veterans off the streets in the Boston area. Typically, they spend one day a week roaming the citys storefronts, alleys and shelters, which is what he was doing one recent morning outside Bostons South Station. I guess you could call this my home for about a month, he reminisced. The rest of the week is spent making sure those who have found housing are staying the course. The Veterans Affairs Department, which funds the effort, is considering doubling the size of the team in the coming year. President Barack Obamas administration has pledged to eliminate homelessness among veterans by the end of 2015. And while the rate has been dropping, time is running short. So communities such as Boston are aggressively hitting the streets with offers of housing, treatment and hope. Using formerly homeless veterans such as Dyer and team leader Christopher Doyle helps them make inroads with a community that often is distrustful of people who havent experienced what theyve been through. When they say, Oh, you dont know what Im talking about, I can say, Yeah, I do, because I was there myself, said Doyle, who at one point lived in a VA homeless shelter with about 180 other veterans before landing a job with the state. James Harrington appears to be one of the programs success stories. Harrington estimates that he was homeless for nearly a dozen years. At first, he said, he lived in vacant apartment complexes that were under construction. Then he spent most of his nights at Logan International Airport. He arrived at his new one-bedroom apartment in February with nothing but his door keys and a backpack. It took him about a month to get used to the feeling that he could stay if he wanted to. Youre so used to living so many years in someone elses domain, said Harrington, 66, an Army veteran who served stateside during the Vietnam War. There was this expectation that someones going to be coming through the door because they really own the place that youre in. Harrington takes great pride in turning his new apartment into a home. He found a couple of Ethan Allan end tables that neighbors were going to throw away. Carly Brown, a VA social worker, drove him to a local furniture bank where he picked out a sofa and a bed. And Doyle chipped in as well, giving him an RCA television. Now just look at the place, Harrington beams. Where are you going to find something better than this? said Harrington. Youre not. A voucher from the federal government pays $981 of the veterans monthly rent. He uses his Social Security and a VA pension to pay another $221 himself. Doyle checks on him weekly to make sure hes OK. I sometimes just talk to him about the last movie he watched, Doyle said. Its to show I have an interest in his life. Doyle said he believes that regular visits from a fellow veteran make it harder for his clients to give up and go back to their old life. Its easy to put someone into an apartment, but its not as easy to keep them in one, Doyle said. A lot of these guys do have mental health issues or substances abuse issues. Sometimes, thats the reason they do the right thing because they know Im going to come see them. The federal government estimates that the homeless rate among veterans has dropped by about 25 percent in the past three years, but nearly 58,000 veterans remain on the streets or in temporary shelters on any given night. I have said from the beginning, the climb will get steeper the closer we get to the summit, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki said earlier this year in Washington. VA officials point to Boston as a model for what can be done when local and federal organizations work together. Their focus is to get chronically homeless veterans into a house or apartment as soon as possible instead of putting them into temporary or emergency shelters for months at a time. Then, once the vet gets into a house, officials arrange the support services the veteran will need to stay there, such as substance abuse counseling and job training. Typically, the federal government pays most of the cost for the home through a voucher. Local officials and nonprofits also help coordinate the support services that are, again, mostly paid for through the VA. When you put housing as the priority, the treatment and everything else comes along in a much more effective way because theyre getting their most basic needs met first, said Vincent Kane, director of the National Center on Homelessness Among Veterans, which conducts policy analysis and research. To estimate the number of homeless veterans, the federal government relies on an annual count that takes place in January. Thousands of volunteers, government employees and nonprofit workers search their local streets, parks and shelters in an effort to count the number of homeless people. The latest count in Boston estimated 458 homeless vets on any given night in 2013, a drop of 15 percent over the past three years. sirens from the parade hes watching, or hell be singing Christmas songs at the top of his lungs. Prior to his surgery as a baby, Travis could crawl and pull himself up. He could say his sisters name, Amber. After his surgery he didnt walk until age 2. The family moved from Colorado to Florida 17 years ago, and settled in Homosassa 15 years ago. Travis attended Lecanto Primary School and then transferred to CREST. Currently, he attends CREST and works parttime at the Key Training Center folding clothes. We have 25 acres in northern Florida and were starting a blueberry farm, Mrs. Dukeman said. Also, Travis is really good with animals, horses especially. We want to teach him something that he can do so he doesnt have to depend on SSI. He has a large family who loves him, and we want to create our own plan for him. She said life with Travis, the youngest of seven siblings, is a joy. It angers her that some talk about his care or his future as a burden. Hes far from a burden, she said. Hes a cherished uncle and brother. Hes amazing, she said. He can do anything online, and the computer has taught him how to read and spell. Dukeman teaches computer skills at the College of Central Florida. If hes interested in it, he learns how to look it up snakes, animals, Scooby Doo, even surgery, she said. My husband has had multiple surgeries, and Travis got very interested in it. When my husband was having knee surgery, Travis found an online surgery site with a Web application that showed how to do it and hes looking at his dads knee like, Hmmm, maybe I could save us some money and do it for you. To Travis, the world is filled with possibilities, especially now that his ultimate dream has come true. After the parade was over, Travis got separated from his family, which was a little scary for his parents. They found him back at the Rustic Ranch, in his Scooby/Max costume, doing his Scooby Doo Ruht row imitation. They fed me hamburgers, he said. He said his best advice for other people who want to be in a parade is to ask a business or ask Santa. Next year, he said, maybe hell do it again; maybe hell be Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. For that, hell need some antlers and a nose that glows. As for having a new dream now that his big dream has come true, Travis thought for a moment and shook his head. Dont need one, he said.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER25, 2013 A7 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS The Savings Are Yours Because The Savings Are Yours Because The Factory Is Ours!

Associated PressIts beginning to look a lot like ... the day after Christmas? On the day before Christmas, retailers turned shoppers attention to the day after the holiday. Amazon.com already is offering after Christmas deals of up to 70percent off clothes and 60 percent off some electronics. Old Navy is running TV ads that its after-holiday sale starts early with discounts of up to 75percent off. And CVS was selling a wine cabinet for $10 off at $39.99 and three fleece throws for $9.99 on Christmas Eve. Heather Nadler, 38, stopped by the CVS in Decatur, Ga., on Tuesday, searching for stuffed animals for her children. But she still plans to hit up sales after Christmas. Ill probably start shopping for me at that point, she said. Stores usually wait until after Christmas to offer discounts of up to 70 percent or more on holiday merchandise that didnt sell. But Americans who are still worried about the economy have held tightly to their purse strings this year, and store sales have fallen for the past three consecutive weeks. The pre-Christmas deals come as retailers are feeling pressure to attract Americans into stores during the final week of whats typically the busiest shopping period of the year. The two-month stretch that begins on Nov.1 is important because retailers can make up to 40 percent of their annual sales during that time. Sales at U.S. stores dropped 3.1percent to $42.7billion for the week that ended on Sunday compared with the same week last year, according to ShopperTrak, which tracks data at 40,000 locations. That follows a decline of 2.9percent and 0.8percent during the first and second weeks of the month, respectively. Stores had a problem even getting Americans into stores, let alone getting them to spend. The number of shoppers fell 21.2percent during the week that ended on Sunday, according to ShopperTrak. Karen McDonald, a spokeswoman at Taubman Centers, which owns or operates 28 malls, estimated that business for the week that ended Sunday was unchanged to mid-single digit percentage growth compared with a year ago. McDonald said business was just OK. Overall, ShopperTrak estimates that holiday sales at stores so far are up 2percent to $218.4 billion compared with the same period last year. Thats below the 2.4percent forecast for the two-month period, but the company is standing by that estimate with a little over a week left before the season ends. The National Retail Federation, the nations largest retail group, also said its sticking with its forecast that sales in stores and online will be up 3.9percent to $602.1billion. In order to get that growth, stores have tried all they can to lure shoppers in. For instance, at the Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, N.J., over the weekend, Abercrombie & Fitch, AnnTaylor and Express had 50percent sales. Gap offered up to 60percent off. And Steve Madden had a buy one, get the second pair at 75percent off. Stores, which typically dont discuss their discount strategy during the season, are hoping the sales will lure last-minute shoppers like Rubi Cuautle, 36, a restaurant manager. Cuautle headed to Target in Atlanta on Tuesday to shop for toys and pajamas for her nieces and nephews. Its crunch time, she said But some analysts doubt the discounts will be enough to save the season. Research firm Retail Metrics predicts December revenue in stores open at least one year, a key retail metric, will rise 2.8percent, slightly higher than last years 2.6percent increase. Ken Perkins, the president of Retail Metrics, said reports suggest that the final weekend before Christmas did not generate the final crush of shoppers necessary to save the holiday season. At least one shopper isnt impressed by the early deals. David Arnold, 43, who works in IT at a bank, said despite earlier after Christmas sales, he plans to go out after Christmas because hes been eyeing a 55-inch TV at Walmart. For a 55-inch, the lowest I saw of a good brand name was $1,200, he said. Im pretty sure Ill find a better deal after Christmas, I want to pay like $800.

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2013 Shifting responsibilities Thank you, Mr. Krieger, for saying in print what I have thought for some time. How did our country get to the place where corporation boards or directors or CEOs can make bad, ill-conceived ideas with great consequences, yet they have no penalty? In addition to his listing, I would like to ask why there are no consequences by these same boards (or people) or corporations? I have wondered for some time now how a local power company (Duke Energy) can ask its subscribers to pay for a bad decision? It was my understanding that when they suggested how to fix their nuclear plant, they were told by people in the know their fix was not a good choice; however, they proceeded with their plan to knock a hole in the containment building which led to cracks, which were not repairable. Since they chose to use a plan which was not acceptable, why should we, the public, be penalized for their bad decisions? What did the nuclear regulatory agency have to say about all this? Id like to see what they said about their proposed fix? Another concern of mine are all the problems at Citrus Memorial hospital. Is not the primary mission for the hospital to provide great care for its patients? How have all the lawsuits during the last few years promoted this? Are they using taxpayers money to pay for the lawyers and lawsuits? Could not this money been better used to provide training for their staff and state of the art equipment so the best possible care is available to Citrus County residents and those seeking medical care? I am totally confused how the board or foundation can vote to continue more legal actions but deny the staff equipment for care of the patients. I think accountability is important. I also think we, the people, need to understand the actions being taken or which laws permit such protection from prosecution for their acts. If laws need to be changed, we need to let our legislators know we expect them to correct any loop holes that encourage and promote these acts. It should not be acceptable to penalize the public for power struggles within these businesses or their bad decisions. I would love to understand how shifting the costs to public responsibility is allowed.Sandy Engelman InvernessSurviving at ChristmastimeWe go to church to say prayers to God to keep the families from fighting with each other and from your hearts. You put ornaments in windows and around the house and have a Christmas dinner and before then we say a little prayer to God, Thank you for the food we eat. God is good. The food is good. Thanksgiving and Christmas we eat turkey. We always moan and go sleep it off. So Merry Christmas to all for next year. December is winter. Its cold outside. We have white snow for Christmas. And on Christmas Day go to give our hearts to God! On TV they have Christmas specials on for the kids to watch at nighttime and make cookies Christmas cookies to eat at Christmastime and go visiting with families and cousins and uncles and aunts too! We may have to work on some holidays to make a little money to pay off lots of bills and have food to eat at Christmastime.Tina Marie Tress Beverly Hills Its been weeks now, more than a month in some places, but it is all about to come to an end. It is the soundtrack of the season Christmas carols. From mall to shining mall, these carols sync American life in a rare shared cultural experience that lasts exactly as long as the holiday shopping season itself. Most of the widely OK, incessantly played songs are secular in content: White Christmas, Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, Ill Be Home for Christmas, and more. But their glory days run according to the holiday calendar. They vanish from audio range as soon as Christmas Day is over and the sales begin. Many will say good riddance, having been Frostied, Rudolphed and Silver-Belled to a tinseled pulp by years end. But I will confess to regret on seeing many of the great voices of American popular song once again retired to seasonal oblivion. I refer to the likes of Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme, Nat King Cole, Johnny Mercer, Margaret Whiting and Judy Garland. Theirs are the golden tones of white Christmases, chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and walking in a winter wonderland even though, baby, its cold outside. (Frank Sinatra, at least, wafts year-round over sound systems in certain Italian restaurants.) Once kings and queens of the pop charts, these singers now have a popular appeal restricted mainly to caroling. Then again, could these limits be because their seasonal repertoire is all that Americans are familiar with? With that possibility in mind, below is a starter kit for the Great American Songbook (for enduringly hep cats, an enhancement) my own Christmas present to readers. These selections, of course, represent a fractional sampling of these vocalists prodigious output, much of which remains available, including as downloadable tunes. What would Yuletide be without Bing Crosby (White Christmas)? He and Rosemary Clooney (Little Drummer Boy) team up to swing with big bandleader Billy May on an album called Fancy Meeting You Here. Highlights: Fancy Meeting You Here, On a Slow Boat to China, Love Wont Let You Get Away. Ella Fitzgerald (Let it Snow!) sang so much pure gold its hard to choose one album, but Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Irving Berlin Songbook is tops. Highlights: Blue Skies, Lets Face the Music and Dance, I Used to Be Color Blind. Mel Torme, aka The Velvet Fog, not only sang but he also wrote The Christmas Song. Dont miss Mel Torme Swings Shubert Alley. Every track is a highlight. Nat King Cole also made Christmas carol history recording The Christmas Song. Cole, of course, was not only a star singer, but also a phenomenal piano player. Penthouse Serenade is a marvelous showcase. Highlights: Penthouse Serenade, Once in a Blue Moon, Polka Dots and Moonbeams. Margaret Whiting and Johnny Mercer (Baby, Its Cold Outside) team up again in Hit the Road to Dreamland, a track on An Evening with Johnny Mercer. Other highlights include: Out of This World, And the Angels Sing, and Im an Old Cowhand. In 1961, Judy Garland recorded Judy Garland at Carnegie Hall, a live album that has been described as the greatest night in show business history. Garland sings many signature standards, including: Who Cares? Puttin on the Ritz, The Man That Got Away Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart but no Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. Just like the rest of these albums, of course, this one would make a wonderful gift. Merry Christmas!Diana West blogs at dianawest.net. She can be contacted via dianawest@ verizon.net.

Each Christmas Day, we offer our individual thoughts and wishes in hopes they remain long after the presents have been unwrapped, tree trimmings have been removed and sermons have been attended. This Christmas season I want to thank all the readers and advertisers who continue to put their faith and loyalty into this newspaper and respect the job we do in the community. The employees at the Chronicleare passionate beyond belief in their efforts to put out a great newspaper 365 days a year. Your support is what makes it possible. Thank you.Gerry Mulligan The sense of joy, hope and faith celebrated on Christmas is hard to capture in words. Its my hope that all can share in the spirit that is Christmas on this day and throughout the year.Charlie Brennan Many cite childhood Christmases among their happiest memories because the world seemed more positive and magical then. Why not practice the same outlook now? Here are some pointers Ive found helpful, especially during the holidays and as we look forward to a new year. Motivational speaker Brian Tracy advises, Optimism is the one quality more associated with success and happiness than any other. A quote attributed to German painter Herm Albright throws in some fun: A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. My personal favorite is this one, attributed to Will Foley: The world is full of cactus, but we dont have to sit on it. This year I hope everyone enjoys the optimism that every day helps build precious, happy memories.Rebecca Martin During the holiday season, we are often reminded there is still much good in the world, and there are people who dedicate themselves to making our community a better place. My holiday wish for everyone is that they will feel the peace of the season that transcends the hustle, and that we will each carry into the new year a commitment to be a better person, to be more thoughtful of others, and to be more thankful for our many blessings. Mac Harris My wish for this Christmas season is for us to find it in our hearts to be more tolerant of others feelings, beliefs and cultures. When that happens, true peace can come.Mike Arnold For me, the birth of Jesus Christ is the true meaning of Christmas in that his birth is the manifestation of Gods eternal love for us. Ever since that blessed moment in time when God gave his only begotten son to the world, mankind has aspired to Gods joyful message of love, charity and goodwill toward all. Christmas, therefore, is a special time for gathering with family and friends to celebrate the greatest gift given mankind on that holy night in Bethlehem over two millennia ago. On this most joyous of days, my heartfelt wishes for a very Merry and Blessed Christmas are extended to all.Curt Ebitz THE ISSUE:Christmas wishes.OUR OPINION:Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Tell Nugent no on TPP bill When the intellectual properties chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership was leaked to WikiLeaks Nov. 14, transnational corporate plans to monopolize information, kill small business, ruin public health and destroy jobs was laid bare. The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a global corporate takeover disguised as a trade agreement. Of the documents 29 chapters, only four relate to trade, the other 25 deal death blows to trade barriers like affordable generic medications, tobacco labeling, labor and environmental protections, and U.S. sovereignty, as corporations sue signing member governments when regulations interfere with bottom lines. This is already happening under NAFTA, and will now also include the 12 Pacific-rim countries in TPP, which happen to encompass 40 percent of the worlds trade and gross national product. For example, Canadian mining company Infinito is suing the government of Costa Rica for protecting its rainforests by disallowing gold-mining interests from destroying the countrys ecosystem, which also interferes with the corporations future profits. The worst aspect of the TPP is the secrecy, with all information thus far coming from leaked texts. TPP is exempted by the Obama administration from the Freedom of Information Act based on supposed national security exemptions, but most experts agree the reason for the secrecy is to keep the public from knowing what is in the bills to stop constituent opposition. The TPP is bad for citizens, and we expect our representative to oppose it, but most devastatingly, President Obama is asking for trade promotion authority or fast track, very likely when Congress reconvenes in early January. Fast track is a questionable procedure, devised to circumvent Constitutional separation of powers vested in Congress, instead handing the president and trade representative express power to make trade laws with minimal debate, no amendments, and only an up or down vote. So far, Rep. Rich Nugent has not taken a position on fast track or the TPP, despite the fact that if his constituents knew what was in these bills, they would be dead set against them. Fast track is only pushed with trade bills that could never survive in sunlight job-killing bills like NAFTA, WTO and CAFTA. Weve endured 20 years of NAFTA. Free trade agreements are devastating for working people. They destroy jobs and lives. Call Rep. Nugent right away before the coming fast-track vote, and tell him to vote for full, open, floor debate and to support his constituents by voting no on fast track.

Associated PressOAKLAND, Calif. A court appointed doctor testified on Tuesday that a 13-year-old Northern California girl is brain dead after suffering complications following a tonsillectomy. Dr. Paul Graham Fisher said Jahi McMath meets all the criteria of brain death. Fishers evaluation was the second to reach that conclusion. Childrens Hospital of Oakland filed court papers late Monday asking that the girl be taken off life support after doctors there also concluded she was brain dead. Her family wants to keep the 13-year-old connected to a breathing machine and has asked for another opinion on her condition. The judge is expected to consider that request and has so far ordered Jahi to remain on life support until Dec.30, or until further order from the court. Jahi was declared brain dead after experiencing complications following a tonsillectomy at Childrens Hospital in Oakland. Alameda County Judge Evelio Grillo on Monday called for Jahi to be independently examined by Fisher, the chief of child neurology at Stanford University School of Medicine. On Dec. 12, doctors concluded the girl was brain dead and since then have wanted to remove her from life support. Jahis family wants to keep her hooked up to a respirator and eventually have her moved to another facility. The family said it believes she is still alive and that the hospital should not remove her from the ventilator without its permission. Its wrong for someone who made mistakes on your child to just call the coroner ... and not respect the familys feeling or rights, Sandra Chatman, Jahis grandmother and a registered nurse, said in the hallway outside the courtroom on Monday. Adopted Associated PressLance Cpl. Christopher Mohedano-Hernandez, left, hugs his stepfather Luis Mohedano after an adoption ceremony Tuesday in Mineola, N.Y. Marine gets adopted in NYMINEOLA, N.Y. A U.S. Marine home on leave was formally adopted by his stepfather in a Christmas Eve adoption ceremony held in a suburban New York courtroom. Lance Cpl. Christopher MohedanoHernandez is the latest in what experts call a growing trend of adult adoptions. Experts said adoptees are usually children brought into subsequent marriages of birth parents and their new spouses. As in the Marines case, they seek to have courts legally declare that person who raised them as their legal parent.NY lawyer: Agent goofed in arrestNEW YORK A lawyer for an Indian diplomat whose arrest and strip search in New York drew angry responses from officials in India is accusing U.S. authorities of bungling the investigation. Attorney Daniel Arshack said Tuesday that an agent who drew up charges against his client made a key error in reading a form submitted on behalf of her domestic worker. Arshack said the mistake led to the arrest two weeks ago of Devyani Khobragade, Indias deputy consul general in New York. She is charged with submitting false documents to obtain a work visa for her New York City housekeeper. Arshack said the error was in mistaking Khobragades listed salary for what she intended to pay her housekeeper. Prosecutors declined to comment. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Faithful Associated PressChinese Catholics attend a Christmas Eve Mass Tuesday at the official Catholic church South Cathedral in Beijing, China. China officially records about 6 million Catholics worshipping in 6,300 congregations across the country, although millions more are believed to worship outside the official church, with considerable crossover between the two in many areas. China and the Vatican have no diplomatic ties. UN increases troops in S. Sudan UNITED NATIONS The U.N. Security Council has voted to temporarily increase the U.N. peacekeeping force in conflict-torn South Sudan to 12,500 troops from 7,000, a nearly 80 percent increase. The resolution adopted unanimously Tuesday by the U.N.s most powerful body will also increase the U.N.s police contingent from 900 to 1,323. To reach the new levels, the council authorized the temporary transfer of troops, police and equipment from U.N. missions in Congo, Darfur, Abyei, Ivory Coast and Liberia. The U.N. also wants attack helicopters for South Sudan. The council condemned the fighting and violence against civilians and ethnic communities that have caused hundreds of deaths across South Sudan, and reported human rights violations by all parties. It called for an immediate cessation of hostilities and the immediate opening of a dialogue.Israel launches Gaza airstrikesGAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Israeli air and ground forces launched a series of attacks Tuesday on targets across the Gaza Strip, killing a young girl and wounding 10 in response to the deadly shooting of an Israeli civilian by a Palestinian sniper. It was the heaviest burst of violence in the volatile area since November 2012, when Israel and Hamas rulers engaged in eight days of heavy fighting. The sudden flare-up threatened a cease-fire that halted that fighting and which largely has held up for the past 13 months. I recommend to Hamas not to test our patience and to assert its authority, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said. If there isnt quiet in Israel, there wont be quiet in the Gaza Strip.Bombing kills 13 in Egypt MANSOURA, Egypt A powerful blast tore through a police headquarters in an Egyptian Nile Delta city early Tuesday, killing 13 people, wounding more than 100 and leaving victims buried under rubble in the deadliest bombing yet in a monthslong wave of violence blamed on Islamic militants. Officials sought to pin the ultimate blame for the bombing on the governments top political nemesis, the Muslim Brother hood, which has been leading a campaign of protests since the July ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. World BRIEFS From wire reports Health care site put to test Associated PressCHICAGO The governments revamped health care website was put to its biggest test yet as a record-breaking surge of Americans rushed to beat Tuesdays extended deadline for signing up for coverage. After a disastrous, glitch-plagued rollout in October, HealthCare.gov, the website where people in 36 states can shop for insurance, received nearly 2 million visits Monday and handled the traffic well, the government said. Monday was the sign-up deadline for people wanting coverage at the start of the new year. But the Obama administration pushed back the deadline a day to deal with expected heavy traffic from procrastinators. The grace period was the latest in a series of delays that have marked President Barack Obamas health care overhaul. Critics of the law seized on the extension as more evidence that the program is in trouble. The amazing, everexpanding deadline? Its clearly a sign of desperation by the administration to do everything they can to increase the number of people signing up, said health economist Gail Wilensky, who ran Medicare for President George H.W. Bush. The laws supporters said the extra day means the public got the message and wants subsidized health insurance. A lot of people who previously found health care unaffordable are learning they can get very substantial subsidies that bring premiums within their reach, said Ron Pollack, president of Families USA, a liberal advocacy group leading efforts to get uninsured people signed up for coverage next year. Thats why were seeing a large influx of people trying to get enrolled. Muslims march in Central African Republic Associated PressBANGUI, Central African Republic Dozens of Muslims marched down the streets of Bangui on Tuesday to demand the departure of French troops, who were deployed to Central African Republic this month to try to pacify fighting, and have instead been accused of taking sides in the nations sectarian conflict. The marchers, almost all of them young and male, began their demonstration in the Kilometer 5 neighborhood, a mostly Muslim section of the capital which has been the scene of clashes with French forces. It marks a dangerous turning point for the more than 1,600 French soldiers sent here, who were initially cheered by the population, who ran out to greet the arriving troops, waving tree branches, and holding up pieces of cardboard emblazoned with welcoming messages. That was before French President Francois Hollande bluntly said that the countrys Muslim president needed to go, and before French forces were accused of only disarming Muslim fighters and ignoring the Christian militias who have infiltrated the city, organizing attacks on mosques, and on neighborhoods like Kilometer 5, where a majority of Muslims live. On Tuesday the crowds making their way down the deserted city streets were holding signs that said: We say No to France! and Hollande Liar. Other signs had a hand drawn map of this nation located at the heart of Africa, but showed it split into two, with a Muslim homeland penciled in in the countrys north. Central African Republic slipped into chaos following a coup in March, which was led by a Muslim rebel group. They overran the capital and installed a Muslim president, while the nations Christian leader was forced to flee with his family. The country is 85percent Christian, and when the Muslim rebels began attacking Christian villages, first to steal their belongings and cattle, a sectarian divide emerged. Pillaging turned to killing, and by the time French forces arrived earlier this month, at least 500 people had been killed in communal violence, including mob lynchings, their bodies so numerous community leaders had to dig enormous holes for their mass graves.

Golf/B2 Scoreboard/B3 TV, lottery/B3 NFL/B4 Dallas QB Tony Romos status is unknown for this weekends game against the Philadelphia Eagles./B4 SPORTSSection BWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE NFL trying to redo tackling technique Bucs Goldson among those who need to change Associated PressIn the seventh season of Dashon Goldsons NFL career, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been trying to teach an old safety a new trick: how to tackle effectively without breaking a rule or, worse, damaging a body part. Goldson recently served a one-game suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit. He was fined a total of $130,000 earlier this year for two other illegal head shots the league has been trying to shut down for the sake of better preserving the health of the players. Were trying to reprogram his strike zone so we dont keep getting those penalties, Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said earlier this month. And I know he is trying very hard to do it as well. Hes getting better at it, which is encouraging. Goldson has long been known as a hard hitter. Now, fair or not, the perception of his style has taken a darker turn: a player prone to making cheap shots. I remember being on the good side of it, hearing commentators, analysts talking about how perfect, how good, how I do it the right way, and all of a sudden with the new rule Im a dirty player, a nasty player, targeted, and Im not playing the game how its supposed to be played, Goldson said. I think thats ridiculous. His case is a snap shot of the conundrum defensive players already trying to keep up with record-setting passing attacks have discovered in the current NFL. Concussions are a serious problem, but are torn knee ligaments really an acceptable alternative? Hitting high and going low can both prompt their own sets of penalties. What will happen, like everything else in life, is everyone will adapt or they wont survive, Schiano said. So, thats what were in the process of Associated PressIn the seventh season of Tampa Bay Buccaneers free safety Dashon Goldsons NFL career, the team has been trying to teach an old safety a new trick: how to tackle effectively without breaking a rule or, worse, damaging a body part.

See NFL/ Page B3 Another accolade Associated PressThe Associated Press named Florida State freshman quarterback Jameis Winston, top, its player of the year Tuesday. Florida State quarterback Winston named Associated Press player of the year Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Winter of Winston continues for Florida States redshirt freshman quarterback. Jameis Winston is The Associated Press national player of the year, adding to his cadre of postseason accolades. Hes this years Heisman Trophy winner, the Walter Camp national player of the year, the Davey OBrien quarterback of the year and the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year. Seminole football fans should send a thank you note to Florida States baseball program. If not for coach Mike Martin Sr. and one of his assistants, Mike Martin Jr., Winston a two-sport athlete might not be preparing to lead the No.1-ranked Seminoles against No. 2 Auburn in the BCS championship game Jan. 6 with the opportunity to bring a third national title back to the Florida State campus. When Winston won the Heisman he thanked the usual cast of family, coaches and teammates. Then there was the thanks to Eleven and Meat. Most of the country ignored the peculiar names, but Winston wouldnt have attended Florida State without the warm relationship between football coach Jimbo Fisher and the Florida State baseball coaching staff. Eleven otherwise known as baseball coach Martin Sr., who has led the program for 34 years, and Meat Martin Jr. Martin Jr. was on a recruiting trip to watch Winston during his junior year of high school when he called to let Fisher know. Fisher actually had tape of Winston on his desk at the time and decided to put it in. About 30 minutes later, Fisher called Martin Jr. back and said, Dont let him get away. Winston hit a game-winning home run that day. Jimbo Fisher deserves the credit for giving the young man the opportunity to display his talents in another sport, Martin Sr. said. Fisher covets players that come from diverse backgrounds where football wasnt their only sport. He actively looks for athletes that play numerous positions on the football field and play different sports. It makes you a different kind of competitor, Fisher said. You learn to learn the different situations. Handle different pressures. Handle noise. Handle quiet. Different games are played in different ways and in different environments. ... Youre constantly competing and you dont get in that rut of you only get it once a year. I think when youre getting it two and three different times of year, the more youre in competitive situations, the more you find out about yourself. ... Every time you compete you learn something about yourself. I think its very good for athletes to do. I wish more athletes were multi-sport guys than they are now. Just like the Heisman voting, Winston was a landslide winner in AP player of the year voting. He received 49 out of 56 votes cast by AP Top 25 college football poll voters. Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch received three votes. Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron got two votes. Boston College running back Andre Williams and Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard each received one vote. Winston is the first Florida State player to win the award, which has been handed out since 1998, and the first from the Atlantic Coast Conference. Florida State and Winston continued to excel despite a sexual assault investigation that became public last month. The State Attorneys Office announced that it would not press charges before the ACC championship game. Bo Jackson, the 1985 Heisman winner, was also a two-sport star from Winstons hometown of Bessemer, Ala. The 19-year-old Winston said after the Heisman ceremony that he wants to better than Jackson. The Texas Rangers drafted Winston in the 15th round of the 2012 MLB draft, but he elected to go to school. Winston will compete for the closer job for the No. 5-ranked Seminoles when baseball begins. He has a fastball that reaches 93-95 miles per hour and throws a slider for strikes. Martin Sr. said there are no restrictions on the quarterback outside of the normal rest for pitchers. Winston is poised to become the sixth winner in Heisman history to play collegiate baseball after winning the award and the first since Jackson in 1986, according to STATS LLC. Martin Sr. believes Winston could be the No. 1 overall pick in the MLB draft if he was to singularly focus on baseball, but the coach doesnt want that. He sees Winston as a firstround pick in both baseball and football. I never want him to devote full time to baseball because then I would miss out on his talent in football, Martin Sr. said. Hes just one of those rare athletes that only come around once in a blue moon. Winston said baseball helped him a lot with football because baseball is a failing game. As a quarterback you have to handle every situation the same. So when I throw a touchdown Ill celebrate and whatnot but when I throw a pick I keep my head up and say my fault guys and move on and keep stuff going. Baseball helped me with that. Hes just one of those rare athletes ...Mike Martin Sr.Florida State University baseball coach said of two-sport athlete Jameis Winston. New Years resolution We are getting really close to the new year and after another day of probably too much food it is the time to start thinking about your New Years resolutions. What does that have to do with tennis? some of you may say; well, actually a lot. Why? If your resolution has anything to do with losing weight, fitness, lowering blood pressure, relieving stress, making new friends, quality family time and so on, the answer is the game of tennis. Billions are spend each year to reach these goals, while all you have to do is to pick up a tennis racquet and start playing. There are possibilities in any price range for lessons, equipment and places to play within Citrus County. Just take a look at the list below with all the playing possibilities if you want something more organized. Just last week, another tournament was added to the list, The Third annual Vertical Spring Classic, the only tournament in Citrus County that offers singles for adults. By the way, if you are new in town or are picking up the game again, a tournament is the best way to meet other players and, on top of that, you support a good cause. Yes, tennis is an excellent game to reach the above mentioned goals with money left in your wallet for next years Christmas. If you need help finding a tennis instructor, place to play, league or tournament info, feel free to send me an e-mail. Leaves me only one thing to say for 2013 and to be on the safe side Ill say it in Dutch, my native tongue: Een vrolijk kerstfeest en een gelukkig nieuwjaar. It simply means Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.Citrus Area Senior Ladies 3.0-3.5 Tuesday LeagueThe results for Dec. 17: Citrus Hills def. Riverhaven, 3-2; Crystal River def.

Sadly, however, only professional touring players spend the requisite amount of time practicing their skills to ensure that they play their best golf. The rest of us have jobs and family or, in a perfect world, a standing golf game four days a week that all leave limited time for practice. The fact is that none of us practice as much as we should in order to play the very best golf we are capable of. That being said, most golfers are simply looking to play better golf, not to play at an optimal level. It goes without saying that the only way to playing better golf is to shoot lower scores. In trying to lower scores, it has been my experience that most golfers use the little time they do commit to practice and pre-round warmups very ineffectively. If your resolution is to play better golf, start on the practice putting green and stay there longer than you want to. Use about 60 percent of the time you have carved out for practice or a pre-round warmup on the practice putting green. The cold, hard facts are that for all golfers, professionals included, the majority (more than 50 percent) of putts outside of 6 to 7 feet do not go in the hole. Therefore, practice making putts, not missing them. Only practice putting to an actual hole on short, 3-to 4-foot putts, ensuring that you will make more than you miss. All other putts should be rolled toward the collar. Rolling putts toward the collar allows you to focus on distance control and will help eliminate leaving more than 3 or 4 feet for your second putt. Use the next 30 percent of your practice/warmup time working on chipping and pitching. Do more chipping than pitching. When practicing chipping, use one stroke, but use different clubs for shots of varying lengths. When pitching, get the exact yardage to a target. However, this time, use different clubs for shots of the same distance to see which club you have more successful with. Use the remaining 10 percent of your time on the full swing. Focus on rhythm and balance, not mechanics. It is no coincidence that 60 percent of the body of this article is devoted to putting, 30 percent to chipping/pitching and 10 percent to the full swing. Spend your practice and warm-up time accordingly and you will shoot lower scores.Wayne Larsen is a golf professional at Skyview. He can be reached at golf@citrushills.com.

From staff reports Associated PressRory McIlroy generated a buzz no matter where he went at the start of the year. He had the hefty deal from Nike. He was No. 1 in the world. And he was struggling early with a missed cut in Abu Dhabi and a first-round departure in Match Play. Nothing caused a stir like the Honda Classic, when he abruptly shook hands with Ernie Els as they were making the turn and walked straight to the parking lot. A statement from his management company said he had a sore wisdom tooth. Associated PressSteve Stricker made it clear that money was not important. His plan was to defend his title at Kapalua and walk away from the PGA Tour for the rest of the year. Over the holidays leading into 2013, he reached a compromise and cut his schedule roughly in half. He contacted his sponsors, and they supported him. Stricker didnt have great expectations starting his year of semiretirement. If I could just make enough money to pay yearly expenses, Im fine with that, he said. If we dont have to touch anything Ive put away ... I dont need to do what Im doing just to make money. Id rather be staying at home, doing things at home with the foundation and with my kids. No one else was around during this conversation, but Stricker still leaned in and lowered his voice as he stated what everyone already knew. You know, were pretty conservative with our money, he said. Stricker was runner-up that week at Kapalua and made $665,000. He didnt play for six weeks, and then reached the quarterfinals of the Accenture Match Play Championship to earn $275,000. Two weeks later, he was runner-up at Doral and brought in $880,000. That should pay the bills. He finished the year with just over $4.4 million, the third-highest total of his career. His world ranking improved 10 spots to No. 8. And by the end of the year, he had several players contemplating a similar schedule. Along the way, there were plenty of other moments that showed more about players than just their birdies and bogeys, and the checks they cash. Rory McIlroy generated a buzz no matter where he went at the start of the year. He had the hefty deal from Nike. He was No. 1 in the world. And he was struggling early with a missed cut in Abu Dhabi and a firstround departure in Match Play. Nothing caused a stir like Friday at the Honda Classic, when he abruptly shook hands with Ernie Els as they were making the turn and walked straight to the parking lot. Information was a trickle. He was vague during a brisk walk to the car. Later, a statement from his management company said he had a sore wisdom tooth. There was a golf tournament still going on. Michael Thompson shot 65 on that Friday to move to the top of the leaderboard. It was early afternoon and no one seemed interested. The announcement sounded more like a plea. We have Michael Thompson in the interview room, the official said. One voice broke the awkward silence. Is he a dentist? a reporter asked. No. But he did win his first PGA Tour event that week. Angel Cabrera is a man of few words and loud actions. A month after losing the Masters in a playoff, he was walking off the 18th green at TPC Sawgrass following a practice round. Fans thrust programs and flags for him to sign. There was bumping and pushing, and a marshal started to bark at everyone to back up. Cabrera stepped back about 10 feet, and then instructed only the children to come under the ropes and join him. He spent the next 15 minutes signing for them. It looked like the scene outside the mansion in Young Frankenstein, missing only the pitchforks and torches. The Pure Silk LPGA Bahamas Classic was played on a 12-hole course at The Ocean Club because of flooding. The first round didnt finish because of another storm system in the area. Players gathered in darkness outside the rules trailer to find out the plan for Friday. A computer error led players to believe only for a moment that they would keep their same tee time for the second round. Chaos ensued, filled with heated arguments among players and rules officials. And it was at this moment the LPGA showed its true international flavor. A group of Swedish players were off to the right, raising their voices in their native language. The Americans were in the front of the pack. The South Koreans were in the back. The Spaniards were in the middle. The Germans were over by the hedges. It was the ultimate melting pot. And they ultimately got it all worked out. 2013 professional golf season had a lot of stories to remember

Thus, theres an entire generation of safeties, cornerbacks and linebackers accustomed to using whatever method necessary to take down a fleet-footed ball carrier, trying to retrain their brains to focus on the midsection. Its all about teaching proper technique, Jets defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman said. When guys tackle properly, they dont get fined. If youre looking to just get the blowup hit ... youll probably get that envelope from the commissioner. One week after Goldsons suspension, Tennessee safety Michael Griffin got a one-game ban as a fellow repeat offender of the no-high-hitsto-defenseless-players rule. That was Griffins fourth violation in three seasons. Griffin started low on the play that got him suspended, but he wound up popping the opponents helmet off as the other player was in the process of falling. For a player, yeah, I think its hard because he came into the league when safeties played a different way and the game was different that way in the back end, Titans coach Mike Munchak said. Now, hes had to learn, as all safeties have had to, to change his game and the way that he plays. Hes done that. But its a fine line. Defensive backs are asked to break up passes over the middle and make wide receivers think twice about exposing their bodies to catch them. Playing in the secondary isnt simply about being in position to prevent the offense from moving the ball through the air. They have to use aggressive tactics. Then theres the sports culture of contact, with jarring hits celebrated by cheering crowds and captured on video in various highlight packages. Deprogramming that is probably impossible.

NFLSTATISTICS Associated PressSan Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman, center, dives into the end zone after returning an interception 89 yards for a touchdown during the fourth quarter Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons in San Francisco. The 49ers won 34-24. 49ers clinch playoff berth San Francisco downs Atlanta 34-24 at home Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO In one emphatic finish, NaVorro Bowman, Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers sealed their postseason berth in a celebratory regular-season finale at Candlestick Park. Bowman returned an interception 89 yards for a touchdown with 1:10 remaining, and the 49ers clinched a playoff berth with a wild 34-24 victory against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night that likely was the final game at San Franciscos longtime home. Tramaine Brock broke up a pass intended for Harry Douglas and Bowman got his hands on the ball and took off. He was joined in the end zone by his teammates for a jubilant dog pile. I always say a lot of plays are made when you run to the ball, Bowman said. Thats all I was doing was just running to the ball, trying to make a tackle, and it popped up and I was able to make a play for my team. Matt Ryan threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Roddy White with 8:42 remaining and a 2-yard score to Tony Gonzalez with 2:09 left as the Falcons (4-11) made things interesting until the end. Atlantas Jason Snelling recovered the ensuing onside kick as the Falcons got the ball back and were driving for a potential goahead score when San Francisco (11-4) capitalized with one of its biggest takeaways yet. Kaepernick ran for a 4-yard touchdown and threw a 10-yard TD pass to Anquan Boldin, and Frank Gore had a 1-yard touchdown run as the 49ers used a big second half to clinch a third straight playoff season and fifth consecutive victory. They put up 169 yards in the third quarter after managing just 113 in the first half as the sellout crowd fell momentarily quiet. San Francisco still has a slim chance at winning a third consecutive NFC West crown if St. Louis wins at Seattle and they beat Arizona on the road. During an evening of fanfare and famous faces for The Sticks ceremonious farewell, Kaepernick took charge as his team made good on coach Jim Harbaughs mantra for the week: We dont want to be the guys who screw up the final game in Candlestick. Associated PressDallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered a back injury against the Washington Redskins last Sunday, which has his status against the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday up in the air. Associated PressIRVING, Texas Dallas owner Jerry Jones said the Cowboys arent ruling Tony Romo out of a winnertake-all game against Philadelphia because doctors could clear him after treating his back injury. Jones said on his radio show Tuesday that his quarterback has proven he can play with pain but wont if doctors advise against it. The Cowboys (8-7) and Eagles (9-6) are playing Sunday night in Dallas third straight season finale against an NFC East rival with the division title and a playoff berth on the line. Romo was the starter in losses to the New York Giants two years ago and Redskins last season. He injured his back in the fourth quarter of Sundays 24-23 win at Washington. Kyle Orton, who hasnt started a game since 2011, is the backup. Jones said he had lengthy discussions with Romo and his doctors Monday about getting the 33-year-old ready to play. The owner wouldnt discuss the details of Romos injury. If you know Tony, you cant imagine what a competitor he is, and he doesnt want to miss a snap, Jones said. He was very disappointed, particularly disappointed for his team, repeated over and over again, Jerry, I cant tell you how badly I feel relative to you and relative to my teammates. Romo didnt miss a game in 2011 after breaking his ribs in Week 2 against San Francisco. He was heavily padded and medicated the next week against Washington and did enough to get the Cowboys an 18-16 win. Tony will play with all the pain, Jones said. But his doctor has to clear him. If Romo isnt cleared, Orton will make his first start since the 2011 season finale for Kansas City against Denver, the team that waived him earlier that year after making Tim Tebow the starter. Orton signed a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the Cowboys that offseason an investment that Jones says was for just the scenario facing Dallas now. The main thing is that its not like Kyle Orton just gets here this morning or gets here tomorrow morning, Jones said. Kyle Orton has been here and he knows this system frankly as well as Romo does. And has practiced it. He just doesnt have the game time that he would have had as the starter, and he doesnt get the reps. Jones said the Cowboys were bringing in multiple quarterbacks for tryouts Tuesday, mostly looking for someone to ease the throwing load on Orton if Romo is either out or limited in practice. Romo and Orton are the only quarterbacks on the roster after Alex Tanney was claimed off the practice squad by Cleveland last month. If you dont realize that youre going to be dealing with injury information, sudden change in plans, then youre in the wrong area, Jones said. Were in as good a shape under these circumstances as you could possibly be in. We have planned on this very event. Cowboys owner: QB Romo could be cleared to face Eagles

Illustrated with colorful photographs and art, and complete with updated information, The Mini Page Book of States will be a favorite in classrooms and homes for years to come. All of a sudden, in what seems like the blink of an eye, the world can change forever. A few inventions have had such a powerful effect that they changed the way people think and act. The printing press, steam power, the telegraph and the computer were giant forces for change. Thousands of other inventions sped along behind them, changing the world in smaller ways. These super-powerful inventions allowed knowledge to fly from person to person in ways never seen before. They closed distances between people. The Mini Page talked with an expert on the history of technology to learn more about these revolutionary inventions.The printing press In about 1450, a German goldsmith, Johann Gutenberg, invented the first practical printing press. His press used movable type metal letters that could be moved around. In the centuries before the press, most books were created by hand. Books took years to copy and were very expensive. Only rich people, churches or governments could afford them. Few people even knew how to read. The press made it possible for regular people to own books. Newspapers sprang up all over.Changing the world with words The printing press changed every part of civilization, including religion. For centuries, the Catholic Church had been the main religious force in Europe. Church officials told people what the Bible said. The first complete book Gutenberg printed on his new press was the Bible. Soon, people were reading the Bible themselves, without someone else telling them what to think about it. This helped lead to a revolution in religion. Within about 70 years after the invention of the printing press, Martin Luther was leading a movement to break away from the Catholic Church. New religious ideas were born.Changing Ideas of Space and TimeEarthshaking Technology photo courtesy NPSThis woodcut from about 1568 shows the man on the left taking off a printed sheet from the press. The man on the right is putting ink on the metal type. For more than 5,000 years, people relied on big animals for transport. In the 1850s, the train transformed transportation. It conquered the problem of distance.

On the Web: At the library: Sproule from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickThe scientific revolution Discoveries in the sciences changed the way people saw the universe. The period between the 1500s and the 1700s Steam travel In 1800, it might have taken five or six days to travel from New York City to Washington, D.C., by horseback or stagecoach. By the 1830s, steam-powered trains allowed people to make the journey in less than a day at an affordable price. Steamboats allowed people to travel up and down a river and cross the ocean more quickly. Steamboats and steam locomotives gave people the ability to move themselves and goods into remote parts of the country. Imagine that you lived on the Before steam engines, you could get a piano, for instance, only if you carried it in a wagon drawn by animals. People in the frontier didnt buy a lot of pianos. But with steam engines, it became possible to have a piano delivered to your hometown. Transportation became affordable for the regular person. People could visit family and friends. Ideas and news spread faster.Changes in ThoughtAdvanced technology In the late 1700s and early 1800s, technology changed history again. For most of history, the only way to increase human strength or speed was to work with a stronger animal, such as a horse or ox. The invention of practical steam engines gave people a much greater ability to power up. Steam power was the most advanced technology people had ever seen. art courtesy NASAExperts believe the scientific revolution started when Nicolaus Copernicus tried to convince people that the Earth and planets moved around the sun. Until then, people had thought the Earth was the center of the universe. This is a modern artists view of the solar system, with the planets orbiting the sun. photo courtesy LOCIn 1814 steamboats could travel about 8 miles per hour downstream and about 3 miles per hour upstream, about as fast as a person can walk. Other advances included: the invention of the microscope and telescope; Galileos improved telescope that allowed him to view closer images of the moon and some planets; and Isaac Newtons discovery of the laws of motion and gravity.

News could spread across the country in moments. By 1850, cities and small towns in the United States were connected by cable was successfully run on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. People could now instantly communicate with people in other countries as well.Computers change the world With the invention of computers, everything changed again. The Internet connects people on one side of the planet to those on the other. The first general-purpose electronic digital computer, the ENIAC, or Electronic Numerical Integrator and the first time, computers could be programmed to solve many different up and running. We are still at the beginning of the computer revolution. Computerdriven robots are performing surgeries. Computers can respond to eye blinks, turning on the TV or turning up the heat for people who are paralyzed. Computers are running the Mars Curiosity rover. Can you imagine what the world might be like when you are grown up?Bringing the World TogetherChanging time and space Together, steam engines and the telegraph changed the way people thought about time and space. The world seemed to shrink. People in the 1800s understood that new technology was changing the world. It was an exciting time. railroad was completed, connecting the United States from coast to coast. People could transport goods across the country, and they could travel easily. They were no longer stuck in one region for their whole lives. People could reach the frontier without months of dangerous travel. Homesteaders rushed to settle the land in the West. These changes were not all good. The railroad also meant that men could be rushed to battlefields during the Civil War, and it sped up the removal of Native Americans from their homelands. The Mini Page thanks William G. Thomas III, chair, University of Nebraska-Lincoln department of history, and author of the adult-level book The Iron Way, for help with this issue. Next week, The Mini Page takes a look at the new year with a 2014 calendar. photo courtesy Oak Ridge National LaboratoryComputer programmers for ENIAC had to physically reprogram it by inserting cables into plug boards.

LASKO/For the ChronicleTravis Dukeman, dressed as Max the Dog from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, throws candy for the children enjoying the Inverness Christmas Parade. Travis, who is a huge Christmas fan and developmentally disabled, was on the team that staffed the float from the Rustic Ranch restaurant at the Dec. 14 parade. NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerHOMOSASSAIn Travis Dukemans world, every day is Christmas and Halloween, Scooby Doo and Disney. Although complications from a surgery when he was 9 months old left him brain damaged from oxygen deprivation, it also left him with a tremendous capacity for wonder and simple pleasures and wide-eyed dreams. For the past 15 years, Travis has had one dream: to be in a Christmas parade. This year, his dream came true. As a special guest on the Grinch-themed float from the Rustic Ranch in Inverness for the Inverness Christmas Parade, 20-year-oldTravis Dukeman got to be Max the Dog and wave to spectators lining the street and not even a little rain could dampen his joy. From his home in Homosassa, with mom Trish Dukeman nearby, Travis spoke in short, simple sentences about his love of parades and Christmas. But first he explained about Scooby Doo. Hes my favorite character, he said. Its my favorite show. He can do a Scooby imitation, Ruht row. (Scooby talk for Uh-oh.) Travis got a Scooby Doo costume about four years ago for Halloween every year he starts around May searching online for the perfect costume. When he learned that he was to be Max the Dog in the Christmas parade, he and his mom did a little ear surgery on his Scooby costume, turning its pointy ears into Maxs big floppy ones. His sister-in-law was the one who got him on the Rustic Ranch float, and when she gave him the news, his face could barely contain his smile. He admitted to being nervous the morning of the parade. Its one thing to stand on the curb and watch; its quite another to actually be a part. He spends a lot of time on the computer watching YouTube videos of Christmas parades any Christmas parade, Mrs. Dukeman said.

In January, Port Director Brad Thorpe responded to criticism about taxpayers funding his training in a certified port director program in New Orleans, La., by footing the bill himself. I will personally front all costs associated with this trip pending the final outcome of the port feasibility study, Thorpe told the Citrus County Port Authority. In the event that the Will Port Citrus float? County mulls its options See PORT/ Page A5 See VETS/ Page A7 Associated PressST. LOUIS The crowd was small for a Christmastime church service, the atmosphere quiet and solemn. There were no joyous carols, no children dressed as nativity characters, no festive decorations. About two dozen people gathered Monday night for a Blue Christmas service at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown St. Louis. Its among many nationwide providing a special service aimed directly at those in need of spiritual healing whether due to divorce, tough economic times, the loss of a loved one or whatever has them feeling down at the holidays. Charles Brown, 35, is still grieving the loss of his mother, who died in June of congestive heart failure. After Mondays service, Brown stuck around to be anointed with oil and for private words of healing from one of the pastors. He told me God is with me, God will bless me, Brown said. I feel like this was a chance to lay my burden down. It gave me comfort. The holiday services are often called Blue Christmas or Longest Night, and typically held on or around the winter solstice, right before Christmas. The first Blue Christmas service was believed to have been performed in British Columbia in 1987. Taylor Burton-Edwards, director of worship resources for the General Board of Discipleship of the United Methodist Church in Nashville, Tenn., said the movement has picked up steam in recent years perhaps due in part to the economic downturn. Blue Christmas services offer help to hurting More churches making special efforts to reach out during holiday season See BLUE/ Page A2

Part of it is a recognition that both the culture and even the church, at this time of year, can tend to completely overlook suffering, Burton-Edwards said. Everybody is supposed to be cheery and happy and all of that, and yet that isnt the case for some people. Christ Church Cathedral has offered Blue Christmas services for the past four holiday seasons. The church was lit mostly by candles. There was no sermon, instead it was a mix of scripture with healing words, quiet songs, prayers and the lighting of eight candles, each on behalf of particular struggles: Pain and illness, financial problems, broken families, addiction. Blue Christmas services arent tied to any particular denomination. In Jeffersonville, Ind., several churches come together each year. The Rev. Don Summerfield of First Presbyterian Church said the crowds there tend to be small, but the healing is clear. We had a guy drive 45 miles to the service, Summerfield said. He just said he needed something like that.A2WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER25, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE 000GXVN 352-795-2665 State Certified CACO10415 Happy Holidays Happy Holidays It is our pleasure to keep you comfortable throughout the year!

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Group making thunder about POW A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThis is the fifth Christmas U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is spending away from his family and in captivity as the only known American prisoner of war. And, a local group is part of the national chorus to bring Bergdahl home. Bergdahl was taken prisoner in Afghanistan by the Taliban on June 30, 2009, and is believed to be held in the tribal areas of Pakistan or southern Afghanistan. They have let a lot of Taliban go from Guantanamo Bay, but no one has bothered to exchange Bowe Bergdahl for one of them. I think that is appalling, said Archie Gooding, president of a local chapter of Rolling Thunder. Gooding and Cynthia Holden, also a Rolling Thunder member, spoke before the ChronicleEditorial Board to help spread the word about Bergdahls plight and urge people to contact their representatives to help bring him home. No family should have to deal with what the family of Bergdahl has been dealing with for more than four years now, Holden said. Bergdahl, who is from Idaho, has been the subject of an ongoing national campaign to have him released from the custody of his captors. Gooding said he hopes Bergdahl does not become part of a long cruel tradition of 83,000 POWs who remain unaccounted for dating back to World War I. We know he is alive and we are trying to do everything we can to bring Bowe back, alive, Gooding said. Rolling Thunder is a national organization of veterans who ride motorcycles and Gooding said their mission is to help bring home American veterans from all the wars. To help or for more information, call Holden at 352628-6481 or email her at Cyn2719@yahoo.com. Bowe BergdahlU.S. Army sergeant was taken prisoner by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleDuring 2013, the Citrus County Transportation Division expanded the deviated-fixed route bus service, adding four new routes that gave riders access to all corners of the county and opened a new transit center. These were two of the many achievements for the year within the Community Services Department. Community Services oversees housing, transportation, veterans affairs Grinch steals familys Christmas presents, puppy PATFAHERY Staff writerTo help get through the busy holiday season, UPS used golf carts with trailers in some areas. including parts of Crystal River. UPS is always exploring ways to improve its efficiency and reduce its environmental impact, company spokesperson Laurie Mallis said. We have found that in some residential neighborhoods, depending on the flow of holiday package volume, it makes sense for UPS to use golf carts for deliveries. A good example of this is retirement communities. UPS uses golf carts in central and west Florida during peak holiday season. She said the environmental benefit to the community includes reduced noise and fuel conservation. Associated PressTAMPA This Grinch was a mean one. Police say burglars broke into a Florida womans home, stole her two childrens gifts from under the tree and snatched the familys puppy. Melody Russell, a 33-year-old property manager, said the thieves broke in to her home northeast of downtown Tampa while she was at work Monday. She came home to find the back door open, all presents under the tree gone and Honey, their 12-week-old Shih Tzu, missing. Her two children, 7-year-old Marissa and 5-year-old Marcus, were at her sisters home when the burglary happened. Marissa cried for a half hour when Russell broke the news about Honey. My kids are so in love with that puppy, she said. The white and tan puppy did not yet have a microchip, Russell said. Russell said she had bought a handful of modest gifts for each of her children Nerf guns and slippers and Ninja turtle toys. Typical Christmas stuff, said Russell, who is a single mother. Nothing extravagant. Tampa Police are investigating the case and they also tried to save Christmas for the Russell family. Russell said that after the officers wrote their reports and processed the crime scene at her home, she sat in the living room, praying to God for strength. It was 1 a.m. on Christmas Eve, she said, and the phone rang. It was a Tampa Police officer, telling her that he and his entire squad were coming to her house with gifts. When police dispatchers and Squad 204 heard about the theft, they quickly chipped in to buy Marissa and Marcus presents. Every single one of them had gifts in their hands, Russell said. I was so in shock. PAT FAHERTY/ChronicleA UPS driver parks a cart for the night at a storage location off North Meadowcrest Boulevard. Golf carts deliver packages Year in REVIEW

For a time, it looked like the Jimmy Stewart Museum wasnt going to make it. Its in the actors Pennsylvania hometown of Indiana an hours drive from Pittsburgh and off the radar of many fans who might want to attend. And the pool of fans is shrinking as those who grew up during the era of Stewarts films die out. The number of tour buses that made special trips to the museum began to decline in 2009 and 2010, said Timothy Harley, the museums director. The situation became very dire. That caused some pretty considerable concern, he said. But the outlook has improved, at least of the next few years he said, thanks to loyal fans who began sending donations as the word got out about the plight of the museum. It turned out that many people still had warm feelings for the star of Its a Wonderful Life, the 1947 Christmas classic that featured Stewart considering suicide, but being talked out of it by a guardian angel named Clarence. The donations ranged from small to substantial, Harley said. One was in an envelope containing a single dollar bill and a return address of Clarence. And last year, Ken and Carol Schultz, a San Diego couple originally from western Pennsylvania, began making yearly $25,000 donations, which matches what the Stewart family gives. Harley said the donations have stabilized funding problems for the small museum with a limited staff and budget. But theyre not a long-term fix, he said. The museum isnt fancy, which is partly why Stewart gave his blessing to the project before he died in 1997. Its full of displays not just about movies, but about Stewarts service as a bomber pilot in World War II, his well-to-do ancestors, and his family life. Stewart flew more than 20 combat missions over Europe even though he was initially too thin to qualify for the military. Harley said Stewarts no-nonsense military service resonates with many young people who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan. Stewart was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, The Air Medal, and the French Croix de Guerre, and by the time the war was over, he had risen from private to the rank of colonel. Pauline Simms, president of the museums board of directors, said the displays that go beyond Hollywood are part of the attraction. The museum isnt just about the man, its about the whole era. If fact, its why some people come, said Simms, a native of the town who remembers getting Stewarts autograph at the end of World War II. Still, theres plenty in the museum to satisfy movie fans. Harley notes that Stewart didnt just play the nice guy in some early films. He played the heavy or the gangster in some of the 1930s films, Harley said, and the museum has dozens of movie posters on display.

Associated PressORLANDO An advocacy group has taken issue with SeaWorlds defense of its treatment of killer whales. The Oceanic Preservation Society issued a rebuttal to full-page ads that SeaWorld took out in seven newspapers last week, defending its record with killer whales. SeaWorld took out the ads after eight recording artists withdrew from a concert series at its Orlando park in February. The SeaWorld ads said that the marine park company hasnt taken a wild killer whale into captivity for 35 years due to its successful breeding program. It also said that SeaWorld doesnt separate killer whale mothers and calves and that the company has invested $70 million over the past three years in its parks killer whale habitats. The society said no amount of money can recreate an orcas natural environment, and disputed SeaWorlds claim it has contributed to research on killer whales. said study deems Port Citrus to be feasible, I will seek reimbursement for these expenses. The training program cost a reported $4,300, about one-tenth of another cost arising from a claim for payment of legal fees that languished almost all year. It, too, was still on the table in January, following a legal case from 2012, when Inverness resident Bob Schweickert Jr. challenged the selection method for the consultant who conducted the Port Citrus feasibility study. The complaint was cured in November 2012 when the port authority repeated the selection process with a public vote count. But Schweickerts attorney, Jonathan D. Kaney Jr., asked for the port authority to pay his legal fees. Then-Port Attorney Richard Wesch maintained in January that no conclusion had been reached about whether the port authority would be required to pay Kaneys fees. The port authority made up of county commissioners with the county administrator serving as director authorized TranSystems Corp. in January to start the feasibility study. For nearly two years, the port authority had tried to get to this initial stage of the study to determine if a commercial seaport could be developed along the former Cross Florida Barge Canal site in the northwest section of the county.The area is now called the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway. TranSystems offered a three-phase project with costs budgeted at each phase: $20,000; $30,000 and $50,000. Half the funding for the $100,000 study came from the Florida Seaport Transportation and Economic Development (FSTED). The other half was met with funds from CLM Workforce Connection, Citrus County business license fees, Citrus County Economic Development Council and the port authority. In June, TranSystems presented the first phase, which determined the Port Citrus concept was economically viable and could go forward for conducting the second and third phases of the study. The second phase identified funding sources and made preliminary applications for funding. The third phase refined market analysis to identify potential market opportunities and port customers. It also prepared the preliminary port development plan to recommend the ports location and the development of infrastructure. In October, TranSystems Corp. Vice President Rick Ferrin presented the completed feasibility study, saying the port authority should take a hands-off approach and provide infrastructure, but only after a company commits to building a barge shipping terminal. You do everything but operate the port terminals, Ferrin said. The port does what the port does best. The terminal operators do what they do best. The report said the barge canal is limited to a barge port because of its 13-foot depth. A better location, it said, is the canal that serves the nearby Duke Energy plant. Duke also has direct rail access, another significant plus for a port development. Duke, however, has shown little interest in joining Citrus County in developing a public port. The report encouraged the county and Duke to continue talks. The report said the best uses for a Port Citrus are materials manufactured on site and then shipped out. It gave as examples cement artificial reef manufacturers or a wood-chip processor. Citrus County does not own any of the land that borders the barge canal. The report said a terminal developer would need to lease or buy property. Thorpe said he would recommend the port authority seek requests for interest from companies to build and operate a terminal at Port Citrus. Also in October, Wesch left county government service. Before he left, Wesch conducted a closed session with the port authority board regarding the next move in the case about paying Kaneys legal fees. A court had ruled in Kaneys favor, so the board was to decide whether to pay the fees or appeal. In December, the board agreed to pay Kaney the sum of $44,000 to settle the case. However, an attorney representing Citrus Mining and Timber, a company owned by Dixie Hollins, asked the board to make the payment to Schweickert rather than Kaney, saying that Schweickert was involved in a bankruptcy case and the fees should be considered an asset for the bankruptcy court for allocation to creditors. Schweickert had lost a previous legal action unrelated to Port Citrus that led to Hollins attorneys being awarded legal fees that Schweickert could not pay. Current Port Authority Attorney Kerry Parsons said the board should go ahead with settling the case by paying Kaney. As the year ended, Schweickert still had another legal case pending against the port authority as a constitutional challenge to the way Port Citrus got its state designation. In 2011, Port Citrus was added as the 18th member of the FSTED Council under a general law. Schweickert said the port designation should have gone through a special law process with public hearings and a referendum. He said Monday the case would be heard in February.CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER25, 2013 A5 Wishing You A Merry Christmas Wishing You A Merry Christmas And A And A Happy Happy New New Year!

Associated PressTAMPA Col. David Parrish ran Hillsborough Countys jails for more than a quarter century. Now hes retired. In his current role, inmates never face the threat of a Taser. Instead, they are baked and iced. This time of year, the former jailer makes gingerbread cookies and decorates some of them like prisoners, each with black-and-white icing stripes. Some are blond with blue eyes; others, red-headed or brunet. Tiny bells dangle from ankle chains. You gotta understand, he explains. I only give them to people that work in the corrections business. Otherwise, people would go, Thats really weird. He admits hes a little warped. I spent my whole adult life in jail, said Parrish, 67. He has plenty of likeminded friends who eat cookies. He travels the country as a corrections expert, having long ago overseen the evolution of Hillsborough jail cells to dormitory settings. He baked even before his 2008 retirement. Hes been at it for nearly two decades. He started off wanting to treat the toll takers he saw each day on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway on trips between the Orient Road jail, where he worked, and the Ybor City headquarters for the sheriffs office. I dug out my mothers old recipe for making gingerbread men when I was a little kid. She used to make giant gingerbread men about 10 inches tall. We were all allowed to have one appendage before breakfast. In the old days, his mother, Ruth Tia Parrish, cut gingerbread using a cardboard pattern. Parrish uses a giant cookie cutter. Mrs. Parrish baked with Crisco. Parrish substitutes butter. In a typical year, he goes through 25 pounds of flour. His wife lends a hand. She measures out all the spices and the egg and the hot water and all that stuff, and that takes all the thinking out of it. All I have to do is throw in 6 cups of flour and a cup of sugar and she brings over the butter warmed up and I throw it all together and we got a real production. He bought an extra oven rack to accommodate inmate overcrowding. Baking sheets hold only two large gingerbread people at a time. He makes 100 to 150, some small. Billy Covington, 88INVERNESSBilly R.

Astronauts complete rare Christmas Eve spacewalk Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL Space station astronauts repaired a crippled cooling system during a rare Christmas Eve spacewalk Tuesday, braving a mini blizzard of noxious ammonia as they popped in a new pump. It was the second spacewalk in four days for U.S. astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Michael Hopkins, and only the second Christmas Eve spacewalk ever. NASA ordered up the spacewalks to revive a critical cooling loop at the International Space Station. All nonessential equipment had to be turned off when the line conked out Dec. 11, and many science experiments halted. With Tuesdays success, the cooling system should be restored and all equipment back up and running by this weekend, according to NASA. Its the best Christmas ever, Mission Control radioed as the 7 1/2-hour spacewalk came to a close. Merry Christmas to everybody, replied Hopkins. It took a couple weeks to get her done, but we got it. Mastracchio and Hopkins removed the faulty ammonia pump during Saturdays spacewalk. On Tuesday, they installed the fresh pump. Standing on the end of the stations main robotic arm, Hopkins clutched the 780-pound, refrigerator-size pump with both hands as he headed toward its installation spot, and then slid it in. An astronaut working inside, Japans Koichi Wakata, gingerly steered the arm and its precious load. Mike Hopkins taking a special sleigh ride on this Christmas Eve, Mission Control commentator Rob Navias said as the space station soared over the Pacific. It was slow going because of a balky ammonia fluid line that sent frozen flakes of the extremely toxic substance straight at the men a mini blizzard, as Mission Control called it. The spacewalkers reported being surrounded by big chunks of the stuff that bounced off equipment and, in all probability, their suits. The ammonia needed to dissipate from their suits before the pair returned inside, to avoid further contamination. Wow, Hopkins sighed after the fourth and final fluid line was hooked to the new pump. The electrical hookups went more smoothly, and six hours into the spacewalk, Hopkins finally called down, Houston, youve got yourself a new pump module. Christmas references filled the radio waves as the action unfolded 260 miles above the planet. Its like Christmas morning opening up a little present here, Mastracchio said as he checked his toolkit. Later, as he worked to remove the spare pump from its storage shelf, he commented: Now it really feels like Im unwrapping a present. Mission Control in Houston was in a festive mood, despite the gravity of the situation. Tabletop Christmas trees, Santa dolls and red Santa caps decorated the desks. NASAs only previous Christmas Eve spacewalk occurred in 1999 during a Hubble Space Telescope repair mission. But NASAs most memorable Christmas Eve was back on Dec. 24, 1968. Apollo 8 astronauts read from Genesis, the first book of the Bible, as they orbited the moon on mankinds first lunar flight. A bad valve in the ammonia pump caused the latest breakdown. Another team of spacewalking astronauts installed that pump just three years ago, and engineers are perplexed as to why it didnt last longer. NASA hopes to salvage it in the years ahead.

to get veterans off the streets in the Boston area. Typically, they spend one day a week roaming the citys storefronts, alleys and shelters, which is what he was doing one recent morning outside Bostons South Station. I guess you could call this my home for about a month, he reminisced. The rest of the week is spent making sure those who have found housing are staying the course. The Veterans Affairs Department, which funds the effort, is considering doubling the size of the team in the coming year. President Barack Obamas administration has pledged to eliminate homelessness among veterans by the end of 2015. And while the rate has been dropping, time is running short. So communities such as Boston are aggressively hitting the streets with offers of housing, treatment and hope. Using formerly homeless veterans such as Dyer and team leader Christopher Doyle helps them make inroads with a community that often is distrustful of people who havent experienced what theyve been through. When they say, Oh, you dont know what Im talking about, I can say, Yeah, I do, because I was there myself, said Doyle, who at one point lived in a VA homeless shelter with about 180 other veterans before landing a job with the state. James Harrington appears to be one of the programs success stories. Harrington estimates that he was homeless for nearly a dozen years. At first, he said, he lived in vacant apartment complexes that were under construction. Then he spent most of his nights at Logan International Airport. He arrived at his new one-bedroom apartment in February with nothing but his door keys and a backpack. It took him about a month to get used to the feeling that he could stay if he wanted to. Youre so used to living so many years in someone elses domain, said Harrington, 66, an Army veteran who served stateside during the Vietnam War. There was this expectation that someones going to be coming through the door because they really own the place that youre in. Harrington takes great pride in turning his new apartment into a home. He found a couple of Ethan Allan end tables that neighbors were going to throw away. Carly Brown, a VA social worker, drove him to a local furniture bank where he picked out a sofa and a bed. And Doyle chipped in as well, giving him an RCA television. Now just look at the place, Harrington beams. Where are you going to find something better than this? said Harrington. Youre not. A voucher from the federal government pays $981 of the veterans monthly rent. He uses his Social Security and a VA pension to pay another $221 himself. Doyle checks on him weekly to make sure hes OK. I sometimes just talk to him about the last movie he watched, Doyle said. Its to show I have an interest in his life. Doyle said he believes that regular visits from a fellow veteran make it harder for his clients to give up and go back to their old life. Its easy to put someone into an apartment, but its not as easy to keep them in one, Doyle said. A lot of these guys do have mental health issues or substances abuse issues. Sometimes, thats the reason they do the right thing because they know Im going to come see them. The federal government estimates that the homeless rate among veterans has dropped by about 25 percent in the past three years, but nearly 58,000 veterans remain on the streets or in temporary shelters on any given night. I have said from the beginning, the climb will get steeper the closer we get to the summit, Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki said earlier this year in Washington. VA officials point to Boston as a model for what can be done when local and federal organizations work together. Their focus is to get chronically homeless veterans into a house or apartment as soon as possible instead of putting them into temporary or emergency shelters for months at a time. Then, once the vet gets into a house, officials arrange the support services the veteran will need to stay there, such as substance abuse counseling and job training. Typically, the federal government pays most of the cost for the home through a voucher. Local officials and nonprofits also help coordinate the support services that are, again, mostly paid for through the VA. When you put housing as the priority, the treatment and everything else comes along in a much more effective way because theyre getting their most basic needs met first, said Vincent Kane, director of the National Center on Homelessness Among Veterans, which conducts policy analysis and research. To estimate the number of homeless veterans, the federal government relies on an annual count that takes place in January. Thousands of volunteers, government employees and nonprofit workers search their local streets, parks and shelters in an effort to count the number of homeless people. The latest count in Boston estimated 458 homeless vets on any given night in 2013, a drop of 15 percent over the past three years. sirens from the parade hes watching, or hell be singing Christmas songs at the top of his lungs. Prior to his surgery as a baby, Travis could crawl and pull himself up. He could say his sisters name, Amber. After his surgery he didnt walk until age 2. The family moved from Colorado to Florida 17 years ago, and settled in Homosassa 15 years ago. Travis attended Lecanto Primary School and then transferred to CREST. Currently, he attends CREST and works parttime at the Key Training Center folding clothes. We have 25 acres in northern Florida and were starting a blueberry farm, Mrs. Dukeman said. Also, Travis is really good with animals, horses especially. We want to teach him something that he can do so he doesnt have to depend on SSI. He has a large family who loves him, and we want to create our own plan for him. She said life with Travis, the youngest of seven siblings, is a joy. It angers her that some talk about his care or his future as a burden. Hes far from a burden, she said. Hes a cherished uncle and brother. Hes amazing, she said. He can do anything online, and the computer has taught him how to read and spell. Dukeman teaches computer skills at the College of Central Florida. If hes interested in it, he learns how to look it up snakes, animals, Scooby Doo, even surgery, she said. My husband has had multiple surgeries, and Travis got very interested in it. When my husband was having knee surgery, Travis found an online surgery site with a Web application that showed how to do it and hes looking at his dads knee like, Hmmm, maybe I could save us some money and do it for you. To Travis, the world is filled with possibilities, especially now that his ultimate dream has come true. After the parade was over, Travis got separated from his family, which was a little scary for his parents. They found him back at the Rustic Ranch, in his Scooby/Max costume, doing his Scooby Doo Ruht row imitation. They fed me hamburgers, he said.

Associated PressIts beginning to look a lot like ... the day after Christmas? On the day before Christmas, retailers turned shoppers attention to the day after the holiday. Amazon.com already is offering after Christmas deals of up to 70percent off clothes and 60 percent off some electronics. Old Navy is running TV ads that its after-holiday sale starts early with discounts of up to 75percent off. And CVS was selling a wine cabinet for $10 off at $39.99 and three fleece throws for $9.99 on Christmas Eve. Heather Nadler, 38, stopped by the CVS in Decatur, Ga., on Tuesday, searching for stuffed animals for her children. But she still plans to hit up sales after Christmas. Ill probably start shopping for me at that point, she said. Stores usually wait until after Christmas to offer discounts of up to 70 percent or more on holiday merchandise that didnt sell. But Americans who are still worried about the economy have held tightly to their purse strings this year, and store sales have fallen for the past three consecutive weeks. The pre-Christmas deals come as retailers are feeling pressure to attract Americans into stores during the final week of whats typically the busiest shopping period of the year. The two-month stretch that begins on Nov.1 is important because retailers can make up to 40 percent of their annual sales during that time. Sales at U.S. stores dropped 3.1percent to $42.7billion for the week that ended on Sunday compared with the same week last year, according to ShopperTrak, which tracks data at 40,000 locations. That follows a decline of 2.9percent and 0.8percent during the first and second weeks of the month, respectively. Stores had a problem even getting Americans into stores, let alone getting them to spend. The number of shoppers fell 21.2percent during the week that ended on Sunday, according to ShopperTrak. Karen McDonald, a spokeswoman at Taubman Centers, which owns or operates 28 malls, estimated that business for the week that ended Sunday was unchanged to mid-single digit percentage growth compared with a year ago. McDonald said business was just OK. Overall, ShopperTrak estimates that holiday sales at stores so far are up 2percent to $218.4 billion compared with the same period last year. Thats below the 2.4percent forecast for the two-month period, but the company is standing by that estimate with a little over a week left before the season ends. The National Retail Federation, the nations largest retail group, also said its sticking with its forecast that sales in stores and online will be up 3.9percent to $602.1billion. In order to get that growth, stores have tried all they can to lure shoppers in. For instance, at the Garden State Plaza Mall in Paramus, N.J., over the weekend, Abercrombie & Fitch, AnnTaylor and Express had 50percent sales. Gap offered up to 60percent off. And Steve Madden had a buy one, get the second pair at 75percent off. Stores, which typically dont discuss their discount strategy during the season, are hoping the sales will lure last-minute shoppers like Rubi Cuautle, 36, a restaurant manager. Cuautle headed to Target in Atlanta on Tuesday to shop for toys and pajamas for her nieces and nephews. Its crunch time, she said But some analysts doubt the discounts will be enough to save the season. Research firm Retail Metrics predicts December revenue in stores open at least one year, a key retail metric, will rise 2.8percent, slightly higher than last years 2.6percent increase. Ken Perkins, the president of Retail Metrics, said reports suggest that the final weekend before Christmas did not generate the final crush of shoppers necessary to save the holiday season. At least one shopper isnt impressed by the early deals. David Arnold, 43, who works in IT at a bank, said despite earlier after Christmas sales, he plans to go out after Christmas because hes been eyeing a 55-inch TV at Walmart. For a 55-inch, the lowest I saw of a good brand name was $1,200, he said. Im pretty sure Ill find a better deal after Christmas, I want to pay like $800.

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2013 Shifting responsibilities Thank you, Mr. Krieger, for saying in print what I have thought for some time. How did our country get to the place where corporation boards or directors or CEOs can make bad, ill-conceived ideas with great consequences, yet they have no penalty? In addition to his listing, I would like to ask why there are no consequences by these same boards (or people) or corporations? I have wondered for some time now how a local power company (Duke Energy) can ask its subscribers to pay for a bad decision? It was my understanding that when they suggested how to fix their nuclear plant, they were told by people in the know their fix was not a good choice; however, they proceeded with their plan to knock a hole in the containment building which led to cracks, which were not repairable. Since they chose to use a plan which was not acceptable, why should we, the public, be penalized for their bad decisions? What did the nuclear regulatory agency have to say about all this? Id like to see what they said about their proposed fix? Another concern of mine are all the problems at Citrus Memorial hospital. Is not the primary mission for the hospital to provide great care for its patients? How have all the lawsuits during the last few years promoted this? Are they using taxpayers money to pay for the lawyers and lawsuits? Could not this money been better used to provide training for their staff and state of the art equipment so the best possible care is available to Citrus County residents and those seeking medical care? I am totally confused how the board or foundation can vote to continue more legal actions but deny the staff equipment for care of the patients. I think accountability is important. I also think we, the people, need to understand the actions being taken or which laws permit such protection from prosecution for their acts. If laws need to be changed, we need to let our legislators know we expect them to correct any loop holes that encourage and promote these acts. It should not be acceptable to penalize the public for power struggles within these businesses or their bad decisions. I would love to understand how shifting the costs to public responsibility is allowed.Sandy Engelman InvernessSurviving at ChristmastimeWe go to church to say prayers to God to keep the families from fighting with each other and from your hearts. You put ornaments in windows and around the house and have a Christmas dinner and before then we say a little prayer to God, Thank you for the food we eat. God is good. The food is good. Thanksgiving and Christmas we eat turkey. We always moan and go sleep it off. So Merry Christmas to all for next year. December is winter. Its cold outside. We have white snow for Christmas. And on Christmas Day go to give our hearts to God! On TV they have Christmas specials on for the kids to watch at nighttime and make cookies Christmas cookies to eat at Christmastime and go visiting with families and cousins and uncles and aunts too! We may have to work on some holidays to make a little money to pay off lots of bills and have food to eat at Christmastime.Tina Marie Tress Beverly Hills Its been weeks now, more than a month in some places, but it is all about to come to an end. It is the soundtrack of the season Christmas carols. From mall to shining mall, these carols sync American life in a rare shared cultural experience that lasts exactly as long as the holiday shopping season itself. Most of the widely OK, incessantly played songs are secular in content: White Christmas, Santa Claus Is Coming to Town, Ill Be Home for Christmas, and more. But their glory days run according to the holiday calendar. They vanish from audio range as soon as Christmas Day is over and the sales begin. Many will say good riddance, having been Frostied, Rudolphed and Silver-Belled to a tinseled pulp by years end. But I will confess to regret on seeing many of the great voices of American popular song once again retired to seasonal oblivion. I refer to the likes of Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme, Nat King Cole, Johnny Mercer, Margaret Whiting and Judy Garland. Theirs are the golden tones of white Christmases, chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and walking in a winter wonderland even though, baby, its cold outside. (Frank Sinatra, at least, wafts year-round over sound systems in certain Italian restaurants.) Once kings and queens of the pop charts, these singers now have a popular appeal restricted mainly to caroling. Then again, could these limits be because their seasonal repertoire is all that Americans are familiar with? With that possibility in mind, below is a starter kit for the Great American Songbook (for enduringly hep cats, an enhancement) my own Christmas present to readers. These selections, of course, represent a fractional sampling of these vocalists prodigious output, much of which remains available, including as downloadable tunes. What would Yuletide be without Bing Crosby (White Christmas)? He and Rosemary Clooney (Little Drummer Boy) team up to swing with big bandleader Billy May on an album called Fancy Meeting You Here. Highlights: Fancy Meeting You Here, On a Slow Boat to China, Love Wont Let You Get Away. Ella Fitzgerald (Let it Snow!) sang so much pure gold its hard to choose one album, but Ella Fitzgerald Sings the Irving Berlin Songbook is tops. Highlights: Blue Skies, Lets Face the Music and Dance, I Used to Be Color Blind. Mel Torme, aka The Velvet Fog, not only sang but he also wrote The Christmas Song. Dont miss Mel Torme Swings Shubert Alley. Every track is a highlight. Nat King Cole also made Christmas carol history recording The Christmas Song. Cole, of course, was not only a star singer, but also a phenomenal piano player. Penthouse Serenade is a marvelous showcase. Highlights: Penthouse Serenade, Once in a Blue Moon, Polka Dots and Moonbeams. Margaret Whiting and Johnny Mercer (Baby, Its Cold Outside) team up again in Hit the Road to Dreamland, a track on An Evening with Johnny Mercer. Other highlights include: Out of This World, And the Angels Sing, and Im an Old Cowhand. In 1961, Judy Garland recorded Judy Garland at Carnegie Hall, a live album that has been described as the greatest night in show business history. Garland sings many signature standards, including: Who Cares? Puttin on the Ritz, The Man That Got Away Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart but no Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. Just like the rest of these albums, of course, this one would make a wonderful gift. Merry Christmas!Diana West blogs at dianawest.net. She can be contacted via dianawest@ verizon.net.

Each Christmas Day, we offer our individual thoughts and wishes in hopes they remain long after the presents have been unwrapped, tree trimmings have been removed and sermons have been attended. This Christmas season I want to thank all the readers and advertisers who continue to put their faith and loyalty into this newspaper and respect the job we do in the community. The employees at the Chronicleare passionate beyond belief in their efforts to put out a great newspaper 365 days a year. Your support is what makes it possible. Thank you.Gerry Mulligan The sense of joy, hope and faith celebrated on Christmas is hard to capture in words. Its my hope that all can share in the spirit that is Christmas on this day and throughout the year.Charlie Brennan Many cite childhood Christmases among their happiest memories because the world seemed more positive and magical then. Why not practice the same outlook now? Here are some pointers Ive found helpful, especially during the holidays and as we look forward to a new year. Motivational speaker Brian Tracy advises, Optimism is the one quality more associated with success and happiness than any other. A quote attributed to German painter Herm Albright throws in some fun: A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. My personal favorite is this one, attributed to Will Foley: The world is full of cactus, but we dont have to sit on it. This year I hope everyone enjoys the optimism that every day helps build precious, happy memories.Rebecca Martin During the holiday season, we are often reminded there is still much good in the world, and there are people who dedicate themselves to making our community a better place. My holiday wish for everyone is that they will feel the peace of the season that transcends the hustle, and that we will each carry into the new year a commitment to be a better person, to be more thoughtful of others, and to be more thankful for our many blessings. Mac Harris My wish for this Christmas season is for us to find it in our hearts to be more tolerant of others feelings, beliefs and cultures. When that happens, true peace can come.Mike Arnold For me, the birth of Jesus Christ is the true meaning of Christmas in that his birth is the manifestation of Gods eternal love for us. Ever since that blessed moment in time when God gave his only begotten son to the world, mankind has aspired to Gods joyful message of love, charity and goodwill toward all. Christmas, therefore, is a special time for gathering with family and friends to celebrate the greatest gift given mankind on that holy night in Bethlehem over two millennia ago. On this most joyous of days, my heartfelt wishes for a very Merry and Blessed Christmas are extended to all.Curt Ebitz THE ISSUE:Christmas wishes.OUR OPINION:Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Tell Nugent no on TPP bill When the intellectual properties chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership was leaked to WikiLeaks Nov. 14, transnational corporate plans to monopolize information, kill small business, ruin public health and destroy jobs was laid bare. The Trans-Pacific Partnership is a global corporate takeover disguised as a trade agreement. Of the documents 29 chapters, only four relate to trade, the other 25 deal death blows to trade barriers like affordable generic medications, tobacco labeling, labor and environmental protections, and U.S. sovereignty, as corporations sue signing member governments when regulations interfere with bottom lines. This is already happening under NAFTA, and will now also include the 12 Pacific-rim countries in TPP, which happen to encompass 40 percent of the worlds trade and gross national product. For example, Canadian mining company Infinito is suing the government of Costa Rica for protecting its rainforests by disallowing gold-mining interests from destroying the countrys ecosystem, which also interferes with the corporations future profits. The worst aspect of the TPP is the secrecy, with all information thus far coming from leaked texts. TPP is exempted by the Obama administration from the Freedom of Information Act based on supposed national security exemptions, but most experts agree the reason for the secrecy is to keep the public from knowing what is in the bills to stop constituent opposition. The TPP is bad for citizens, and we expect our representative to oppose it, but most devastatingly, President Obama is asking for trade promotion authority or fast track, very likely when Congress reconvenes in early January. Fast track is a questionable procedure, devised to circumvent Constitutional separation of powers vested in Congress, instead handing the president and trade representative express power to make trade laws with minimal debate, no amendments, and only an up or down vote. So far, Rep. Rich Nugent has not taken a position on fast track or the TPP, despite the fact that if his constituents knew what was in these bills, they would be dead set against them. Fast track is only pushed with trade bills that could never survive in sunlight job-killing bills like NAFTA, WTO and CAFTA. Weve endured 20 years of NAFTA. Free trade agreements are devastating for working people. They destroy jobs and lives. Call Rep. Nugent right away before the coming fast-track vote, and tell him to vote for full, open, floor debate and to support his constituents by voting no on fast track.

Associated PressOAKLAND, Calif. A court appointed doctor testified on Tuesday that a 13-year-old Northern California girl is brain dead after suffering complications following a tonsillectomy. Dr. Paul Graham Fisher said Jahi McMath meets all the criteria of brain death. Fishers evaluation was the second to reach that conclusion. Childrens Hospital of Oakland filed court papers late Monday asking that the girl be taken off life support after doctors there also concluded she was brain dead. Her family wants to keep the 13-year-old connected to a breathing machine and has asked for another opinion on her condition. The judge is expected to consider that request and has so far ordered Jahi to remain on life support until Dec.30, or until further order from the court. Jahi was declared brain dead after experiencing complications following a tonsillectomy at Childrens Hospital in Oakland. Alameda County Judge Evelio Grillo on Monday called for Jahi to be independently examined by Fisher, the chief of child neurology at Stanford University School of Medicine. On Dec. 12, doctors concluded the girl was brain dead and since then have wanted to remove her from life support. Jahis family wants to keep her hooked up to a respirator and eventually have her moved to another facility. The family said it believes she is still alive and that the hospital should not remove her from the ventilator without its permission. Its wrong for someone who made mistakes on your child to just call the coroner ... and not respect the familys feeling or rights, Sandra Chatman, Jahis grandmother and a registered nurse, said in the hallway outside the courtroom on Monday.

Experts said adoptees are usually children brought into subsequent marriages of birth parents and their new spouses.

Attorney Daniel Arshack said Tuesday that an agent who drew up charges against his client made a key error in reading a form submitted on behalf of her domestic worker. Arshack said the mistake led to the arrest two weeks ago of Devyani Khobragade, Indias deputy consul general in New York. She is charged with submitting false documents to obtain a work visa for her New York City housekeeper. Arshack said the error was in mistaking Khobragades listed salary for what she intended to pay her housekeeper. Prosecutors declined to comment. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Faithful Associated PressChinese Catholics attend a Christmas Eve Mass Tuesday at the official Catholic church South Cathedral in Beijing, China. China officially records about 6 million Catholics worshipping in 6,300 congregations across the country, although millions more are believed to worship outside the official church, with considerable crossover between the two in many areas. China and the Vatican have no diplomatic ties. UN increases troops in S. Sudan UNITED NATIONS The U.N. Security Council has voted to temporarily increase the U.N. peacekeeping force in conflict-torn South Sudan to 12,500 troops from 7,000, a nearly 80 percent increase. The resolution adopted unanimously Tuesday by the U.N.s most powerful body will also increase the U.N.s police contingent from 900 to 1,323. To reach the new levels, the council authorized the temporary transfer of troops, police and equipment from U.N. missions in Congo, Darfur, Abyei, Ivory Coast and Liberia. The U.N. also wants attack helicopters for South Sudan. The council condemned the fighting and violence against civilians and ethnic communities that have caused hundreds of deaths across South Sudan, and reported human rights violations by all parties. It called for an immediate cessation of hostilities and the immediate opening of a dialogue.Israel launches Gaza airstrikesGAZA CITY, Gaza Strip Israeli air and ground forces launched a series of attacks Tuesday on targets across the Gaza Strip, killing a young girl and wounding 10 in response to the deadly shooting of an Israeli civilian by a Palestinian sniper. It was the heaviest burst of violence in the volatile area since November 2012, when Israel and Hamas rulers engaged in eight days of heavy fighting. The sudden flare-up threatened a cease-fire that halted that fighting and which largely has held up for the past 13 months. I recommend to Hamas not to test our patience and to assert its authority, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said. If there isnt quiet in Israel, there wont be quiet in the Gaza Strip.Bombing kills 13 in Egypt MANSOURA, Egypt A powerful blast tore through a police headquarters in an Egyptian Nile Delta city early Tuesday, killing 13 people, wounding more than 100 and leaving victims buried under rubble in the deadliest bombing yet in a monthslong wave of violence blamed on Islamic militants. Officials sought to pin the ultimate blame for the bombing on the governments top political nemesis, the Muslim Brother hood, which has been leading a campaign of protests since the July ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. World BRIEFS From wire reports Health care site put to test Associated PressCHICAGO The governments revamped health care website was put to its biggest test yet as a record-breaking surge of Americans rushed to beat Tuesdays extended deadline for signing up for coverage. After a disastrous, glitch-plagued rollout in October, HealthCare.gov, the website where people in 36 states can shop for insurance, received nearly 2 million visits Monday and handled the traffic well, the government said. Monday was the sign-up deadline for people wanting coverage at the start of the new year. But the Obama administration pushed back the deadline a day to deal with expected heavy traffic from procrastinators. The grace period was the latest in a series of delays that have marked President Barack Obamas health care overhaul. Critics of the law seized on the extension as more evidence that the program is in trouble. The amazing, everexpanding deadline? Its clearly a sign of desperation by the administration to do everything they can to increase the number of people signing up, said health economist Gail Wilensky, who ran Medicare for President George H.W. Bush. The laws supporters said the extra day means the public got the message and wants subsidized health insurance. A lot of people who previously found health care unaffordable are learning they can get very substantial subsidies that bring premiums within their reach, said Ron Pollack, president of Families USA, a liberal advocacy group leading efforts to get uninsured people signed up for coverage next year. Thats why were seeing a large influx of people trying to get enrolled. Muslims march in Central African Republic Associated PressBANGUI, Central African Republic Dozens of Muslims marched down the streets of Bangui on Tuesday to demand the departure of French troops, who were deployed to Central African Republic this month to try to pacify fighting, and have instead been accused of taking sides in the nations sectarian conflict. The marchers, almost all of them young and male, began their demonstration in the Kilometer 5 neighborhood, a mostly Muslim section of the capital which has been the scene of clashes with French forces. It marks a dangerous turning point for the more than 1,600 French soldiers sent here, who were initially cheered by the population, who ran out to greet the arriving troops, waving tree branches, and holding up pieces of cardboard emblazoned with welcoming messages. That was before French President Francois Hollande bluntly said that the countrys Muslim president needed to go, and before French forces were accused of only disarming Muslim fighters and ignoring the Christian militias who have infiltrated the city, organizing attacks on mosques, and on neighborhoods like Kilometer 5, where a majority of Muslims live. On Tuesday the crowds making their way down the deserted city streets were holding signs that said: We say No to France! and Hollande Liar. Other signs had a hand drawn map of this nation located at the heart of Africa, but showed it split into two, with a Muslim homeland penciled in in the countrys north. Central African Republic slipped into chaos following a coup in March, which was led by a Muslim rebel group. They overran the capital and installed a Muslim president, while the nations Christian leader was forced to flee with his family. The country is 85percent Christian, and when the Muslim rebels began attacking Christian villages, first to steal their belongings and cattle, a sectarian divide emerged. Pillaging turned to killing, and by the time French forces arrived earlier this month, at least 500 people had been killed in communal violence, including mob lynchings, their bodies so numerous community leaders had to dig enormous holes for their mass graves. Court weighs teens life Associated PressDede Logan, of Oakland, adds red stars to a poster Monday in support of Jahi McMath in front of Childrens Hospital Oakland in Oakland, Calif. McMath was declared brain dead after experiencing complications following a tonsillectomy at the hospital.

Golf/B2 Scoreboard/B3 TV, lottery/B3 NFL/B4 Dallas QB Tony Romos status is unknown for this weekends game against the Philadelphia Eagles./B4 SPORTSSection BWEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 25, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE NFL trying to redo tackling technique Bucs Goldson among those who need to change Associated PressIn the seventh season of Dashon Goldsons NFL career, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been trying to teach an old safety a new trick: how to tackle effectively without breaking a rule or, worse, damaging a body part. Goldson recently served a one-game suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit. He was fined a total of $130,000 earlier this year for two other illegal head shots the league has been trying to shut down for the sake of better preserving the health of the players. Were trying to reprogram his strike zone so we dont keep getting those penalties, Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said earlier this month. And I know he is trying very hard to do it as well. Hes getting better at it, which is encouraging. Goldson has long been known as a hard hitter. Now, fair or not, the perception of his style has taken a darker turn: a player prone to making cheap shots. I remember being on the good side of it, hearing commentators, analysts talking about how perfect, how good, how I do it the right way, and all of a sudden with the new rule Im a dirty player, a nasty player, targeted, and Im not playing the game how its supposed to be played, Goldson said. I think thats ridiculous. His case is a snap shot of the conundrum defensive players already trying to keep up with record-setting passing attacks have discovered in the current NFL. Concussions are a serious problem, but are torn knee ligaments really an acceptable alternative? Hitting high and going low can both prompt their own sets of penalties. What will happen, like everything else in life, is everyone will adapt or they wont survive, Schiano said. So, thats what were in the process of Associated PressIn the seventh season of Tampa Bay Buccaneers free safety Dashon Goldsons NFL career, the team has been trying to teach an old safety a new trick: how to tackle effectively without breaking a rule or, worse, damaging a body part. More NFL news For the results of Monday nights Atlanta-San Francisco game, and all of the other statistics and playoff scenarios from around the league, see Page B4. See NFL/ Page B3 Another accolade Associated PressThe Associated Press named Florida State freshman quarterback Jameis Winston, top, its player of the year Tuesday. Florida State quarterback Winston named Associated Press player of the year Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Winter of Winston continues for Florida States redshirt freshman quarterback. Jameis Winston is The Associated Press national player of the year, adding to his cadre of postseason accolades. Hes this years Heisman Trophy winner, the Walter Camp national player of the year, the Davey OBrien quarterback of the year and the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year. Seminole football fans should send a thank you note to Florida States baseball program. If not for coach Mike Martin Sr. and one of his assistants, Mike Martin Jr., Winston a two-sport athlete might not be preparing to lead the No.1-ranked Seminoles against No. 2 Auburn in the BCS championship game Jan. 6 with the opportunity to bring a third national title back to the Florida State campus. When Winston won the Heisman he thanked the usual cast of family, coaches and teammates. Then there was the thanks to Eleven and Meat. Most of the country ignored the peculiar names, but Winston wouldnt have attended Florida State without the warm relationship between football coach Jimbo Fisher and the Florida State baseball coaching staff. Eleven otherwise known as baseball coach Martin Sr., who has led the program for 34 years, and Meat Martin Jr. Martin Jr. was on a recruiting trip to watch Winston during his junior year of high school when he called to let Fisher know. Fisher actually had tape of Winston on his desk at the time and decided to put it in. About 30 minutes later, Fisher called Martin Jr. back and said, Dont let him get away. Winston hit a game-winning home run that day. Jimbo Fisher deserves the credit for giving the young man the opportunity to display his talents in another sport, Martin Sr. said. Fisher covets players that come from diverse backgrounds where football wasnt their only sport. He actively looks for athletes that play numerous positions on the football field and play different sports. It makes you a different kind of competitor, Fisher said. You learn to learn the different situations. Handle different pressures. Handle noise. Handle quiet. Different games are played in different ways and in different environments. ... Youre constantly competing and you dont get in that rut of you only get it once a year. I think when youre getting it two and three different times of year, the more youre in competitive situations, the more you find out about yourself. ... Every time you compete you learn something about yourself. I think its very good for athletes to do. I wish more athletes were multi-sport guys than they are now. Just like the Heisman voting, Winston was a landslide winner in AP player of the year voting. He received 49 out of 56 votes cast by AP Top 25 college football poll voters. Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch received three votes. Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron got two votes. Boston College running back Andre Williams and Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard each received one vote. Winston is the first Florida State player to win the award, which has been handed out since 1998, and the first from the Atlantic Coast Conference. Florida State and Winston continued to excel despite a sexual assault investigation that became public last month. The State Attorneys Office announced that it would not press charges before the ACC championship game. Bo Jackson, the 1985 Heisman winner, was also a two-sport star from Winstons hometown of Bessemer, Ala. The 19-year-old Winston said after the Heisman ceremony that he wants to better than Jackson. The Texas Rangers drafted Winston in the 15th round of the 2012 MLB draft, but he elected to go to school. Winston will compete for the closer job for the No. 5-ranked Seminoles when baseball begins. He has a fastball that reaches 93-95 miles per hour and throws a slider for strikes. Martin Sr. said there are no restrictions on the quarterback outside of the normal rest for pitchers. Winston is poised to become the sixth winner in Heisman history to play collegiate baseball after winning the award and the first since Jackson in 1986, according to STATS LLC. Martin Sr. believes Winston could be the No. 1 overall pick in the MLB draft if he was to singularly focus on baseball, but the coach doesnt want that. He sees Winston as a firstround pick in both baseball and football. I never want him to devote full time to baseball because then I would miss out on his talent in football, Martin Sr. said. Hes just one of those rare athletes that only come around once in a blue moon. Winston said baseball helped him a lot with football because baseball is a failing game. As a quarterback you have to handle every situation the same. So when I throw a touchdown Ill celebrate and whatnot but when I throw a pick I keep my head up and say my fault guys and move on and keep stuff going. Baseball helped me with that. Hes just one of those rare athletes ...Mike Martin Sr.Florida State University baseball coach said of two-sport athlete Jameis Winston. New Years resolution We are getting really close to the new year and after another day of probably too much food it is the time to start thinking about your New Years resolutions. What does that have to do with tennis? some of you may say; well, actually a lot. Why? If your resolution has anything to do with losing weight, fitness, lowering blood pressure, relieving stress, making new friends, quality family time and so on, the answer is the game of tennis. Billions are spend each year to reach these goals, while all you have to do is to pick up a tennis racquet and start playing. There are possibilities in any price range for lessons, equipment and places to play within Citrus County. Just take a look at the list below with all the playing possibilities if you want something more organized. Just last week, another tournament was added to the list, The Third annual Vertical Spring Classic, the only tournament in Citrus County that offers singles for adults. By the way, if you are new in town or are picking up the game again, a tournament is the best way to meet other players and, on top of that, you support a good cause. Yes, tennis is an excellent game to reach the above mentioned goals with money left in your wallet for next years Christmas. If you need help finding a tennis instructor, place to play, league or tournament info, feel free to send me an e-mail. Leaves me only one thing to say for 2013 and to be on the safe side Ill say it in Dutch, my native tongue: Een vrolijk kerstfeest en een gelukkig nieuwjaar.

Sadly, however, only professional touring players spend the requisite amount of time practicing their skills to ensure that they play their best golf. The rest of us have jobs and family or, in a perfect world, a standing golf game four days a week that all leave limited time for practice. The fact is that none of us practice as much as we should in order to play the very best golf we are capable of. That being said, most golfers are simply looking to play better golf, not to play at an optimal level. It goes without saying that the only way to playing better golf is to shoot lower scores. In trying to lower scores, it has been my experience that most golfers use the little time they do commit to practice and pre-round warmups very ineffectively. If your resolution is to play better golf, start on the practice putting green and stay there longer than you want to. Use about 60 percent of the time you have carved out for practice or a pre-round warmup on the practice putting green. The cold, hard facts are that for all golfers, professionals included, the majority (more than 50 percent) of putts outside of 6 to 7 feet do not go in the hole. Therefore, practice making putts, not missing them. Only practice putting to an actual hole on short, 3-to 4-foot putts, ensuring that you will make more than you miss. All other putts should be rolled toward the collar. Rolling putts toward the collar allows you to focus on distance control and will help eliminate leaving more than 3 or 4 feet for your second putt. Use the next 30 percent of your practice/warmup time working on chipping and pitching. Do more chipping than pitching. When practicing chipping, use one stroke, but use different clubs for shots of varying lengths. When pitching, get the exact yardage to a target. However, this time, use different clubs for shots of the same distance to see which club you have more successful with. Use the remaining 10 percent of your time on the full swing. Focus on rhythm and balance, not mechanics. It is no coincidence that 60 percent of the body of this article is devoted to putting, 30 percent to chipping/pitching and 10 percent to the full swing. Spend your practice and warm-up time accordingly and you will shoot lower scores.Wayne Larsen is a golf professional at Skyview. He can be reached at golf@citrushills.com.

From staff reports Associated PressRory McIlroy generated a buzz no matter where he went at the start of the year. He had the hefty deal from Nike. He was No. 1 in the world. And he was struggling early with a missed cut in Abu Dhabi and a first-round departure in Match Play. Nothing caused a stir like the Honda Classic, when he abruptly shook hands with Ernie Els as they were making the turn and walked straight to the parking lot. A statement from his management company said he had a sore wisdom tooth. Associated PressSteve Stricker made it clear that money was not important. His plan was to defend his title at Kapalua and walk away from the PGA Tour for the rest of the year. Over the holidays leading into 2013, he reached a compromise and cut his schedule roughly in half. He contacted his sponsors, and they supported him. Stricker didnt have great expectations starting his year of semiretirement. If I could just make enough money to pay yearly expenses, Im fine with that, he said. If we dont have to touch anything Ive put away ... I dont need to do what Im doing just to make money. Id rather be staying at home, doing things at home with the foundation and with my kids. No one else was around during this conversation, but Stricker still leaned in and lowered his voice as he stated what everyone already knew. You know, were pretty conservative with our money, he said. Stricker was runner-up that week at Kapalua and made $665,000. He didnt play for six weeks, and then reached the quarterfinals of the Accenture Match Play Championship to earn $275,000. Two weeks later, he was runner-up at Doral and brought in $880,000. That should pay the bills. He finished the year with just over $4.4 million, the third-highest total of his career. His world ranking improved 10 spots to No. 8. And by the end of the year, he had several players contemplating a similar schedule. Along the way, there were plenty of other moments that showed more about players than just their birdies and bogeys, and the checks they cash. Rory McIlroy generated a buzz no matter where he went at the start of the year. He had the hefty deal from Nike. He was No. 1 in the world. And he was struggling early with a missed cut in Abu Dhabi and a firstround departure in Match Play. Nothing caused a stir like Friday at the Honda Classic, when he abruptly shook hands with Ernie Els as they were making the turn and walked straight to the parking lot. Information was a trickle. He was vague during a brisk walk to the car. Later, a statement from his management company said he had a sore wisdom tooth. There was a golf tournament still going on. Michael Thompson shot 65 on that Friday to move to the top of the leaderboard. It was early afternoon and no one seemed interested. The announcement sounded more like a plea. We have Michael Thompson in the interview room, the official said. One voice broke the awkward silence. Is he a dentist? a reporter asked. No. But he did win his first PGA Tour event that week. Angel Cabrera is a man of few words and loud actions. A month after losing the Masters in a playoff, he was walking off the 18th green at TPC Sawgrass following a practice round. Fans thrust programs and flags for him to sign. There was bumping and pushing, and a marshal started to bark at everyone to back up. Cabrera stepped back about 10 feet, and then instructed only the children to come under the ropes and join him. He spent the next 15 minutes signing for them. It looked like the scene outside the mansion in Young Frankenstein, missing only the pitchforks and torches. The Pure Silk LPGA Bahamas Classic was played on a 12-hole course at The Ocean Club because of flooding. The first round didnt finish because of another storm system in the area. Players gathered in darkness outside the rules trailer to find out the plan for Friday. A computer error led players to believe only for a moment that they would keep their same tee time for the second round. Chaos ensued, filled with heated arguments among players and rules officials. And it was at this moment the LPGA showed its true international flavor. A group of Swedish players were off to the right, raising their voices in their native language. The Americans were in the front of the pack. The South Koreans were in the back. The Spaniards were in the middle. The Germans were over by the hedges. It was the ultimate melting pot. And they ultimately got it all worked out. 2013 professional golf season had a lot of stories to remember

Thus, theres an entire generation of safeties, cornerbacks and linebackers accustomed to using whatever method necessary to take down a fleet-footed ball carrier, trying to retrain their brains to focus on the midsection. Its all about teaching proper technique, Jets defensive coordinator Dennis Thurman said. When guys tackle properly, they dont get fined. If youre looking to just get the blowup hit ... youll probably get that envelope from the commissioner. One week after Goldsons suspension, Tennessee safety Michael Griffin got a one-game ban as a fellow repeat offender of the no-high-hitsto-defenseless-players rule. That was Griffins fourth violation in three seasons. Griffin started low on the play that got him suspended, but he wound up popping the opponents helmet off as the other player was in the process of falling. For a player, yeah, I think its hard because he came into the league when safeties played a different way and the game was different that way in the back end, Titans coach Mike Munchak said. Now, hes had to learn, as all safeties have had to, to change his game and the way that he plays. Hes done that. But its a fine line. Defensive backs are asked to break up passes over the middle and make wide receivers think twice about exposing their bodies to catch them. Playing in the secondary isnt simply about being in position to prevent the offense from moving the ball through the air. They have to use aggressive tactics. Then theres the sports culture of contact, with jarring hits celebrated by cheering crowds and captured on video in various highlight packages. Deprogramming that is probably impossible.

NFLSTATISTICS Associated PressSan Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman, center, dives into the end zone after returning an interception 89 yards for a touchdown during the fourth quarter Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons in San Francisco. The 49ers won 34-24. 49ers clinch playoff berth San Francisco downs Atlanta 34-24 at home Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO In one emphatic finish, NaVorro Bowman, Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers sealed their postseason berth in a celebratory regular-season finale at Candlestick Park. Bowman returned an interception 89 yards for a touchdown with 1:10 remaining, and the 49ers clinched a playoff berth with a wild 34-24 victory against the Atlanta Falcons on Monday night that likely was the final game at San Franciscos longtime home. Tramaine Brock broke up a pass intended for Harry Douglas and Bowman got his hands on the ball and took off. He was joined in the end zone by his teammates for a jubilant dog pile. I always say a lot of plays are made when you run to the ball, Bowman said. Thats all I was doing was just running to the ball, trying to make a tackle, and it popped up and I was able to make a play for my team. Matt Ryan threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Roddy White with 8:42 remaining and a 2-yard score to Tony Gonzalez with 2:09 left as the Falcons (4-11) made things interesting until the end. Atlantas Jason Snelling recovered the ensuing onside kick as the Falcons got the ball back and were driving for a potential goahead score when San Francisco (11-4) capitalized with one of its biggest takeaways yet. Kaepernick ran for a 4-yard touchdown and threw a 10-yard TD pass to Anquan Boldin, and Frank Gore had a 1-yard touchdown run as the 49ers used a big second half to clinch a third straight playoff season and fifth consecutive victory. They put up 169 yards in the third quarter after managing just 113 in the first half as the sellout crowd fell momentarily quiet. San Francisco still has a slim chance at winning a third consecutive NFC West crown if St. Louis wins at Seattle and they beat Arizona on the road. During an evening of fanfare and famous faces for The Sticks ceremonious farewell, Kaepernick took charge as his team made good on coach Jim Harbaughs mantra for the week: We dont want to be the guys who screw up the final game in Candlestick. Associated PressDallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered a back injury against the Washington Redskins last Sunday, which has his status against the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday up in the air. Associated PressIRVING, Texas Dallas owner Jerry Jones said the Cowboys arent ruling Tony Romo out of a winnertake-all game against Philadelphia because doctors could clear him after treating his back injury. Jones said on his radio show Tuesday that his quarterback has proven he can play with pain but wont if doctors advise against it. The Cowboys (8-7) and Eagles (9-6) are playing Sunday night in Dallas third straight season finale against an NFC East rival with the division title and a playoff berth on the line. Romo was the starter in losses to the New York Giants two years ago and Redskins last season. He injured his back in the fourth quarter of Sundays 24-23 win at Washington. Kyle Orton, who hasnt started a game since 2011, is the backup. Jones said he had lengthy discussions with Romo and his doctors Monday about getting the 33-year-old ready to play. The owner wouldnt discuss the details of Romos injury. If you know Tony, you cant imagine what a competitor he is, and he doesnt want to miss a snap, Jones said. He was very disappointed, particularly disappointed for his team, repeated over and over again, Jerry, I cant tell you how badly I feel relative to you and relative to my teammates. Romo didnt miss a game in 2011 after breaking his ribs in Week 2 against San Francisco. He was heavily padded and medicated the next week against Washington and did enough to get the Cowboys an 18-16 win. Tony will play with all the pain, Jones said. But his doctor has to clear him. If Romo isnt cleared, Orton will make his first start since the 2011 season finale for Kansas City against Denver, the team that waived him earlier that year after making Tim Tebow the starter. Orton signed a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the Cowboys that offseason an investment that Jones says was for just the scenario facing Dallas now. The main thing is that its not like Kyle Orton just gets here this morning or gets here tomorrow morning, Jones said. Kyle Orton has been here and he knows this system frankly as well as Romo does. And has practiced it. He just doesnt have the game time that he would have had as the starter, and he doesnt get the reps. Jones said the Cowboys were bringing in multiple quarterbacks for tryouts Tuesday, mostly looking for someone to ease the throwing load on Orton if Romo is either out or limited in practice. Romo and Orton are the only quarterbacks on the roster after Alex Tanney was claimed off the practice squad by Cleveland last month. If you dont realize that youre going to be dealing with injury information, sudden change in plans, then youre in the wrong area, Jones said. Were in as good a shape under these circumstances as you could possibly be in. We have planned on this very event. Cowboys owner: QB Romo could be cleared to face Eagles

Illustrated with colorful photographs and art, and complete with updated information, The Mini Page Book of States will be a favorite in classrooms and homes for years to come. All of a sudden, in what seems like the blink of an eye, the world can change forever. A few inventions have had such a powerful effect that they changed the way people think and act. The printing press, steam power, the telegraph and the computer were giant forces for change. Thousands of other inventions sped along behind them, changing the world in smaller ways. These super-powerful inventions allowed knowledge to fly from person to person in ways never seen before. They closed distances between people. The Mini Page talked with an expert on the history of technology to learn more about these revolutionary inventions.The printing press In about 1450, a German goldsmith, Johann Gutenberg, invented the first practical printing press. His press used movable type metal letters that could be moved around. In the centuries before the press, most books were created by hand. Books took years to copy and were very expensive. Only rich people, churches or governments could afford them. Few people even knew how to read. The press made it possible for regular people to own books. Newspapers sprang up all over.Changing the world with words The printing press changed every part of civilization, including religion. For centuries, the Catholic Church had been the main religious force in Europe. Church officials told people what the Bible said. The first complete book Gutenberg printed on his new press was the Bible. Soon, people were reading the Bible themselves, without someone else telling them what to think about it. This helped lead to a revolution in religion. Within about 70 years after the invention of the printing press, Martin Luther was leading a movement to break away from the Catholic Church. New religious ideas were born.Changing Ideas of Space and TimeEarthshaking Technology photo courtesy NPSThis woodcut from about 1568 shows the man on the left taking off a printed sheet from the press. The man on the right is putting ink on the metal type. For more than 5,000 years, people relied on big animals for transport. In the 1850s, the train transformed transportation. It conquered the problem of distance.

On the Web: At the library: Sproule from The Mini Page 2013 Universal UclickThe scientific revolution Discoveries in the sciences changed the way people saw the universe. The period between the 1500s and the 1700s Steam travel In 1800, it might have taken five or six days to travel from New York City to Washington, D.C., by horseback or stagecoach. By the 1830s, steam-powered trains allowed people to make the journey in less than a day at an affordable price. Steamboats allowed people to travel up and down a river and cross the ocean more quickly. Steamboats and steam locomotives gave people the ability to move themselves and goods into remote parts of the country. Imagine that you lived on the Before steam engines, you could get a piano, for instance, only if you carried it in a wagon drawn by animals. People in the frontier didnt buy a lot of pianos. But with steam engines, it became possible to have a piano delivered to your hometown. Transportation became affordable for the regular person. People could visit family and friends. Ideas and news spread faster.Changes in ThoughtAdvanced technology In the late 1700s and early 1800s, technology changed history again. For most of history, the only way to increase human strength or speed was to work with a stronger animal, such as a horse or ox. The invention of practical steam engines gave people a much greater ability to power up. Steam power was the most advanced technology people had ever seen. art courtesy NASAExperts believe the scientific revolution started when Nicolaus Copernicus tried to convince people that the Earth and planets moved around the sun. Until then, people had thought the Earth was the center of the universe. This is a modern artists view of the solar system, with the planets orbiting the sun. photo courtesy LOCIn 1814 steamboats could travel about 8 miles per hour downstream and about 3 miles per hour upstream, about as fast as a person can walk. Other advances included: the invention of the microscope and telescope; Galileos improved telescope that allowed him to view closer images of the moon and some planets; and Isaac Newtons discovery of the laws of motion and gravity.

News could spread across the country in moments. By 1850, cities and small towns in the United States were connected by cable was successfully run on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. People could now instantly communicate with people in other countries as well.Computers change the world With the invention of computers, everything changed again. The Internet connects people on one side of the planet to those on the other. The first general-purpose electronic digital computer, the ENIAC, or Electronic Numerical Integrator and the first time, computers could be programmed to solve many different up and running. We are still at the beginning of the computer revolution. Computerdriven robots are performing surgeries. Computers can respond to eye blinks, turning on the TV or turning up the heat for people who are paralyzed. Computers are running the Mars Curiosity rover. Can you imagine what the world might be like when you are grown up?Bringing the World TogetherChanging time and space Together, steam engines and the telegraph changed the way people thought about time and space. The world seemed to shrink. People in the 1800s understood that new technology was changing the world. It was an exciting time. railroad was completed, connecting the United States from coast to coast. People could transport goods across the country, and they could travel easily. They were no longer stuck in one region for their whole lives. People could reach the frontier without months of dangerous travel. Homesteaders rushed to settle the land in the West. These changes were not all good. The railroad also meant that men could be rushed to battlefields during the Civil War, and it sped up the removal of Native Americans from their homelands.

Parents are expected to share school report cards with staff and, if appropriate, ask their childs teacher at Forest Ridge Elementary or Central Ridge Elementary for any study materials their child requires.

Gift cards will also be distributed on Fridays. Guidelines for this program require the children to be present every day. Additionally, if the child does not study during the homework time, they will be removed from the program.
