With doom, gloom and controversy normally corralling headlines, 13-year old Jazzy gave readers a chance to smile and hope. The Inverness Middle School student was severely injured in an October 2012 motorcycle accident that killed her father. As she lay in a coma, doctors told her mother, Carrie Connolly, that she wouldnt survive or, at best, would have severe brain injury and never function normally again. 2013 proved those doctors wrong. Not only is Jazzy alive, she participated in a dance competition and returned to school. Her teachers say she continues to progress and by doing so, Jazzy continues to convince those who doubted her ability to improve. Shes a miracle, Connolly said. This is her first Christmas home since the accident. Last year at this time, she had just woken from a coma and was in a Jacksonville rehabilitation center, re-learning basic speech and motor skills. She came home for good March 1 and soon was reunited with Sergeant, her 6-year-old Chihuahua who had gone missing. Terry Funderburk, an animal control officer with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, tracked down the missing Sergeant to a neighbor, who gladly gave up the pooch after learning of Jazmines circumstances. Others would also be around to help Jazzy. In June, Nature Coast EMS bought Jazmine an outdoor swimming pool for aquatic therapy, which will help her walk again. EMS personnel assembled the pool while MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileJazmine Jazzy Lee continues to recover from a severe motorcycle accident that seriously injured her and claimed the life of h er father in October of 2012.

Flood insurance premium rates were increased by the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 in an effort to stabilize the National Flood Insurance Programs $24 billion debt incurred through the catastrophic destruction of Hurricane Katrina and superstorm Sandy. The reform act put the cost of flood insurance back onto property owners in high-risk areas through annual increments. Some measures started Oct. 1. Key provisions of the legislation required the NFIP to raise rates to reflect true flood risk, make the program more financially stable and change how Flood Insurance Rate Map updates impact policyholders.

Commissioner Joe Meek, appointed by the board to act is a liaison to the Citrus County Hospital Board and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation, said his role kicks in only in the creation of a trust to oversee net proceeds of the proposed long-term lease. Meek said the commission majority purposely decided stay out of the fray between the hospital boards, which are negotiating both an end to contentious lawsuits and narrowing the wording for a letter of intent with Hospital Corporation of America. Ive had meetings with both general counsels about our desire to be involved in the long-term trust, forming the trust, populating the board and those types of things, he said.

Ex-anchorman enjoys comparison to Ron BurgundyJACKSONVILLE A former 1970s anchorman is enjoying a little more time in the limelight, thanks to the return of his fictional counterpart Ron Burgundy. Comedian Will Ferrell has said the inspiration for his character in the Anchorman movies was Mort Crim, who moved to northeast Florida in 1998 after retiring as a TV news anchor in Detroit. Crim told The Florida Times-Union that the film is a satire and he doesnt take offense to Ferrells performance. He said he always took his work seriously but tried not to take himself too seriously. I think the first movie was a parody of anchor people, Crim said. The second is a parody of the whole 24-hour news cycle. The key moment is when Burgundy said, Why do we have to give them what they need? Lets give them what they want. Crim and his wife were invited to the Dec. 15 premiere of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues at the Beacon Theatre in New York, where he got to meet Ferrell for the first time. I walked up to him, put out my hand and said, Will, its such an honor for you to meet me, Crim said. He said he appreciated the good nature I had displayed in the interviews Id done. Crims smooth baritone voice caught Ferrells attention in a documentary on Jessica Savitch, Crims co-anchor at a Philadelphia TV station in the mid-1970s. Crim said he wasnt always nice to Savitch in the early days of their partnership, but he came to admire her and delivered the eulogy at her memorial service in 1983. Now 78, Crim has written seven books and is starting to write his eighth, which is about working in television news in the 1970s and 1980s.Dragnet results in 48 arrestsSANFORD A dragnet conducted by the Seminole County Sheriffs Office has resulted in 48 arrests, including a woman charged with stealing $1,700 worth of bras from a shopping mall. The sheriffs office in suburban Orlando said Tuesday that the goal of the dragnet was to stop retail theft, remove drunk drivers from roads and prevent burglaries. Charges filed against the suspects include driving under the influence, theft and drug possession. As part of the dragnet, plainclothes deputies worked undercover inside several stores. Besides the bra-theft suspect, deputies arrested three suspects accused of stealing Christmas gifts and cash from a home.Teen accused of killing motherGULF BREEZE Florida Panhandle authorities said a teenager is charged with murder after allegedly beating and stabbing his mother to death. According to the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Office, the Gulf Breeze teen and his mother had been arguing Tuesday night when the 17-year-old attacked her with kitchen knives and a baseball bat. The woman died at the scene. The sheriffs office said the teen was found hours later at a nearby home, where he surrendered.Man fatally shot standing in yardDELTONA, Fla. Authorities said a central Florida man may have been killed by a stray bullet from a neighbors shooting range. The Volusia County Sheriffs Office said the Deltona man was in his back yard Wednesday morning when he was shot in the chest. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. His name was not released. The sheriffs office told The Daytona Beach News-Journal that a neighbor had built a shooting range and it was possible that a stray bullet from the range struck the victim.Body recovered off Florida KeysSUMMERLAND KEY The body of a man who lived on a boat offshore in the Florida Keys has been recovered. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office reported that 68-year-old Charles Salyers was found dead Tuesday off Summerland Key. He had been reported missing by a friend a day earlier. Authorities said Salyers lived on a boat moored in Niles Channel. He reportedly used a dinghy with a small motor on it to travel to and from his boat.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3THURSDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Man faces arson charges CHRISVANORMER Staff writerHOMOSASSA An argument about which roommate had to move out may have led to the intentional setting of a fire early Sunday that destroyed a garage and the car inside it, according to a Citrus County Sheriffs Office arrest report. Before 7 a.m. Sunday, Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire and Rescue Service and deputies responded to a call to 6862 S. Greengate Point to find a 20foot by 30-foot freestanding garage containing a car both fully involved in flames that resulted in 100 percent loss to both, according to an incident worksheet report. Crews extinguished the fire. According to the report, deputies gathered information on scene and questioned a suspect, Edward Laurence Kenneally III, 25, who lived at that address and was attempting to put out the fire with a garden hose when officers arrived. The owner of the property, Gary Taylor, who called the Fire and Rescue Service, said he and another witness, Josh Jones, observed Kenneally attempting to extinguish the fire. Taylor said the garage structure was an unenclosed homemade carport and the car belonged to another roommate, Maurice Ayres, who was not present. According to information gathered by deputies, Kenneally returned to the residence at about 1:30 a.m. from a Homosassa tavern, and was argumentative about having to move out because he did not get along with Ayres, who had been away from the property for several days. At about 6:30 a.m., Kenneally was said to have gone outside to cool off. Kenneally, who was reported to have been read Miranda warnings about his right to remain silent, was reported to have told deputies that he took matches from his pocket, opened the unlocked car door, lit a match and threw it inside the car with another book of matches. When he saw the flames, Kenneally told deputies he grabbed the garden hose and tried to extinguish the fire. Kenneally also was reported by deputies to have said that he was agitated that Ayres would get to stay at the residence although he was being forced to leave. Deputies reported Kenneally said he was sorry and apologized and that he was being an idiot. When the Florida State Fire Marshal examined the scene, he ruled out the possibility of an accidental fire because the vehicle did not have a battery. Ayres, contacted by phone, said the car had been in running condition, although it had not been used in years. Ayres stated he wished to pursue charges. Taylor waived prosecution and signed a waiver concerning his garage. Kenneally was taken to the Citrus County Detention Facility and advised that he was placed under arrest for arson. His bond was set at $3,000. A search revealed two unlit matches in Kenneallys pocket, which were turned in as evidence. Edward Kennealy IIIbond set at $3,000. VA adopts county-made product PATFAHERTY Staff writerA Homosassa company is making a national impact with products to improve the daily lives of people with physical or neuromuscular disabilities. Since 1989, Accessibility Services Inc. has been providing assistive technology and adaptive equipment for disabled individuals, hospitals, businesses, schools and universities throughout Florida, and in recent years, at a national level. The family-owned company started in Tampa, but has been in Citrus County since 2011. It is now in a growth mode and has a contract on a new building. Combining software, hardware and biomedical engineering, it designs, builds and provides environmental control units (ECUs) sometimes called electronic aids for daily living. The end product enablesusers with physical or neuromuscular disabilities to gain control of their environment. It also provides automatic door openers for handicapped access for both residential and commercial use. Owner Maggie Thompson said the door openers are used by universities and department stores such as Macys and the University of Miami. Their ECUs provide increased independence in a home, hospital or rehabilitation facility, allowing users tocontrol and operate everyday items easily and effectively. Patients can handle nurse calls, television, bed adjustments and the telephone. They can read e-books, play computer games and with Wi-Fi can access email, Skype and social media. The heart of the unit is a 12-inch tablet computer that mounts to a movable arm above the patients bed that may also hold the television. The various devices are connected by infrared technology. The units are being installed at Veterans Affairs facilities for spinal cord injuries, Thompson said. We have a software program that allows the user to control, either by touch, voice, switch or sip and puff. The head tracker and eye camera are other options enabling patients to control the unit by head or eye movement. We are always trying to update and do the best we can to make our product work better and last longer, she said. Our philosophy is that we work from the patient backwards. Installation involves working with nurse managers, biomedical engineers, prosthetics experts, therapists, care givers and site managers. Maggies husband Fred Thompson started the company to fill a need for wheelchair clients who required additional environmental controls. In 2010 he was approached by the VA in Memphis, which created the need for computerized CPU. Out largest client is the VA, and weve been dealing with VA Tampa for over 20 years, Maggie Thompson said. As a result of the companys work, the Memphis VA won an innovation award, which led to Accessibility Services winning a three-year national contract. Thompson said it will entail putting in 973 units in 22 VA facilities across the country. And looking ahead the company believes its CPU will expand into the residential market as well. The company has 11 employees, including four new hires, as its ramps up to meet demand. To reach that stage, Thompson said they used the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the University of North Florida SBDC was very instrumental in helping us when we were working on the contract, she said. They just wanted us to be successful; I cant say enough about them.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicle online.com.

State and federal fishery experts are set to meet early next month in Key Largo to consider streamlining the regulations for fishing in South Florida. An update on Goliath grouper populations is expected at the meeting. A ban on harvesting Goliath grouper has been in place since 1990, but fishermen say the fishs population has rebounded. The executive director of the federal South Atlantic Fishery Management Council told TheMiami Herald that theres a lot of interest in reopening the Goliath grouper fishery. However, many biologists worry that allowing even limited harvests of the slow-growing fish could reverse the benefits of conservation efforts.Teen shot by police after high-speed chasePENSACOLA Police in Floridas Panhandle say officers fatally shot a teenager who led them on a highspeed chase. Police told the Pensacola News Journal that officers spotted 17-yearold William Goodman of Gulf Breeze driving recklessly and pursued him. Officers caught up to Goodman early Tuesday at an intersection, where the teen allegedly tried ramming his Corvette into their cars. Police said Officer Chad Willhite fired into Goodmans car after another officers leg was run over in an attempt to detain the teen. Goodman died at a hospital. A police spokeswoman said the officer with the injured leg was treated at a hospital. Willhite is on paid administrative leave pending an investigation. Goodman was charged in the death of a pedestrian in March. He was due in court next month.Coast Guard calls off search for six CubansMIAMI Coast Guard officials have abandoned a search for six Cuban migrants illegally traveling by boat between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. According to a Coast Guard statement Wednesday, a family member in the U.S. alerted authorities Saturday that the migrants boat was overdue. The relative told authorities that the boat was carrying three men and three women when it left Juan Dolio Beach in the Dominican Republic on Dec. 17. The Coast Guard called off its search for the boat and its passengers Tuesday evening after searching roughly 22,000 square miles south of the Dominican Republic and in the Mona Passage.Jailed fathers send messages to kidsJACKSONVILLE About a dozen inmates at one of Jacksonvilles jails sent recorded messages to their children as a plea not to follow in their footsteps. The Times-Union reported that most of the men selected for the program will be out of jail by May. Rev. John Guns, founder of Operation Save Our Sons, said the organization will hold a welcome home party for the inmates who participated. He said the goal is to positively integrate the fathers back into their childrens lives. The program is a collaboration between Operation Save Our Sons and the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office.

Las Vegas basketball player and businessman Jackie Robinson announced the project this week. Its tentatively called the All Net Arena and Resort, and would be built on the site of a former water park near the renovated SLS Las Vegas hotelcasino and the Fontainebleau tower. Robinson said the project is privately funded. He says construction could begin next spring and be completed in 2016.NJ tribe sues makers of film Out of the FurnaceNEWARK, N.J. Members of the Ramapough Native American tribe have filed a $50 million lawsuit against the makers of a recent Hollywood movie they said depicts their people in a negative light. The federal suit was filed Monday in New Jersey against the writers and producers of Out of the Furnace. The suit claims the film makes false representations about the people who live in the Ramapo Mountains along the New York-New Jersey border about 25 miles west of New York City. The movie stars Christian Bale as a man trying to find his missing brother, who has gotten involved with a bare-knuckle fighting ring in the mountains of New Jersey. The movies villain, played by Woody Harrelson, has the last name DeGroat, which is common among the Ramapough. Tribal members identify as descendants of the Lenape or Lunaape Nation, with some Dutch and other European ancestry in their heritage. Most of the 17 plaintiffs in the suit have the DeGroat last name. Harrelsons character is the leader of a gang of inbreds, according to the suit, who are depicted as lawless, drug-addicted, poor and violent, and live in the mountains of New Jersey. The film also uses the term Jackson Whites, a historically derogatory term for the Ramapough. The plaintiffs seek punitive and compensatory damages and allege defamation, mental anguish and emotional distress.Israeli actors sit out show at settlement theaterJERUSALEM A trio of Israeli stage actors is refusing to perform in an acclaimed play before a theater in a West Bank Jewish settlement, part of a burgeoning domestic movement against the governments settlement policies. The protest mirrors a global movement against the settlements that has put Israels government in an increasingly difficult situation as the current round of peace talks with the Palestinians continues. The international community, including the U.S., has long considered Israeli construction of homes for Jews in the West Bank, captured territory claimed by the Palestinians, as an obstacle to peace. In a joint statement, the Cameri and Beit Lessin theaters said that three cast members in their production of Best Friends had asked to be excused from performing at the cultural center in Ariel, a settlement built deep inside the West Bank. It said they were granted exemptions and will be replaced by alternates, allowing the show to go on.

Associated PressAmid partisan conflict in Congress, dozens of lawmakers from both parties including staunch liberals and conservatives have united behind a bill that supporters say addresses a heart-rending issue beyond politics: the millions of foreign children languishing in orphanages or otherwise at risk because they have no immediate family. The bill would encourage more adoptions of foreign orphans, which have declined steadily in recent years, and reflects impatience with current policies overseen by the State Department. Every child needs and deserves to grow up in a family, said the bills chief advocate, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La. While our foreign policy has done much to keep children alive and healthy, it has not prioritized this basic human right. Titled the Children in Families First Act, the measure has been introduced in slightly different forms in both the Senate and House. Its co-sponsors range from Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., a hero of the Democratic left, to Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., a favorite of tea party conservatives. Its not a slam dunk, but it is very possible, Landrieu said of the bills chances. We need voices from all parts of the political spectrum to make a change that many of us think is extremely important. As of mid-December, the twin measures had 32 co-sponsors in the House and 17 in the Senate. Landrieu, mother of two adopted children, hopes to keep building support for the bill with the goal of clearing committees in both chambers by spring. However, some House Republicans are skeptical about creating more bureaucracy, and there is sentiment in the Obama administration that some key provisions of the bill are not needed. I think weve been pretty successful recently, said Susan Jacobs, the State Departments special adviser on childrens issues. We are proud of the work that we do to protect everyone involved in the adoption process the birth families, the adopting families and of course the children. Landrieu thinks differently, contending the government has been remiss in failing to establish an office that focuses on international child welfare. The bill would create a new bureau in the State Department assigned to work with non-governmental organizations and foreign countries to minimize the number of children without families through family preservation and reunification, kinship care, and domestic and international adoption. Under the legislation, the processing of international adoption cases would be assigned to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, while the U.S. Agency for International Development would become home to a center dedicated to implementing a 2012 plan to assist children in adversity. Theres no firm global count of children in orphanages, but they number in the millions. In Russia which has banned adoptions by Americans there are more than 650,000 children not in parental custody. In Kyrgyzstan where foreign adoptions were disrupted for years due to corruption and political problems orphanages are often ill-equipped, with limited specialized care for severely disabled children. Much of the impetus for Landrieus bill stems from shifting views about the Hague Convention on Inter-Country Adoption. That treaty establishes ethical standards for international adoptions, which it says are an acceptable option after efforts have been made to have a child adopted in his or her home country. The U.S. entered into the agreement in 2008 with strong support from Landrieu and other adoption advocates who hoped it would curtail fraud and corruption, and then lead to a boom in legitimate adoptions. Instead, the decrease in foreign adoption by Americans which started in 2005 has continued. There were 8,668 such adoptions in 2012, down from 22,991 in 2004. When I helped to pass this treaty, it was everyones hope that the number would go up doubled, tripled, quadrupled, Landrieu said. Instead its down by 60 percent. Thats the best evidence I have that what State Department has in place isnt working. There are multiple reasons for the decline including increases in domestic adoptions in China and South Korea, and suspensions imposed on several countries due to concerns about fraud and trafficking. However, many supporters of Landrieus bill believe the Hague convention has been applied too punitively. Several prominent supporters wrote to Secretary of State John Kerry on Dec. 18 asking that he investigate the matter. The letter cites Cambodia as an example. The U.S. and other Western countries have banned adoptions from there since 2001 out of concern that the adoption business was rife with bribery and child-trafficking. Cambodia, which imposed its own ban in 2009, now says it has made needed reforms and is ready to resume international adoptions, but the State Department says the U.S. ban will remain in place. Since 2001, the letter said, tens of thousands of children in Cambodia have had no chance at a permanent family. Many grow up or even die in institutional care, it said, while others end up on the streets or trafficked into the sex trade. Chuck Johnson, CEO of the National Council for Adoption and one of the letters signatories, cited Vietnam and Nepal as other countries where adoptions were suspended because of corruption and trafficking, and which now feel ready to resume them. Citrus County Sheriffs Fire Rescue filled it with 5,000 gallons of water. In July, Jazzy returned to her first love the stage. Joining again with Dance Central owner Chandra Haimbaugh and fellow dancers, Jazmine participated in a dance recital at Curtis Peterson Auditorium that featured Jazzy leaving her wheelchair and standing up for the first time publicly. She continues her quest to walk regularly. She hates that wheelchair, her mother said. During rehabilitation, Inverness Middle School teachers visited Jazmine weekly for tutoring. Although the idea a year ago of Jazzy returning to school in August seemed remote, neither daughter nor mom thought it impossible. We didnt quit pushing her, Connolly said. The more you push, the more she achieves. She was a determined little girl her whole life. I knew it was in her. So in October, about a year to the date of her fathers fatal accident, Jazzy returned to IMS as a fulltime student. Shes still the Jazmine we all know, teacher Robin Martone said at the time. Connolly said the next big goal for Jazmine, who turns 14 Jan. 1, is getting rid of the wheelchair permanently. She wants to be walking, Connolly said, and living a normal teenage life.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com.

In September, a Chronicleeditorial stated the Biggert-Waters reform act carried unintended economic consequences. The reform act changed the original intent of the NFIP that was created in 1968 to offer flood insurance at a subsidized rate as an alternative to disaster assistance. The reform act affected many county residents. At the beginning of August, 7,996 properties were in the NFIP: 5,770 in unincorporated areas, 1,109 in Crystal River and 117 in Inverness. Since 1978, flood insurance covered county losses of about $45 million in unincorporated areas, $19.6 million in Crystal River and $107,362 in Inverness. Florida, overall, had 40 percent of all flood policies nationwide. In effect, businesses with subsidized premiums face 25 percent premium rate increases each year until reaching the full risk rate without subsidy. Owners of properties purchased after July 6, 2012, under subsidized rates or policies that have lapsed will face full-risk rating at renewal. Primary residences can keep subsidized rates with some annual increases until the property is sold, adding another sale obstacle in a sluggish real estate market. In addition, these reform act provisions were predicted to price property owners out of their homes, trigger a new round of foreclosures, reduce property values and cause tax revenue losses. Residents who wondered how they would be affected were urged in October to study the new preliminary insurance rate map available at the countys building division. The new map identified about 800 to 900 properties as no longer within flood-prone areas, but designated more than 2,000 properties as at risk. Property owners with federally backed mortgages potentially would have to buy flood insurance. However, as a preliminary map, it was at the appeals stage. Flood insurance rates would not increase for newly identified at-risk properties until the map was adopted, which is expected to take effect in September 2014. U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent of Floridas District 11 introduced a bill in September (H.R. 3218: Flood Insurance Fairness Act of 2013) to delay the rate hikes for a long enough time to address the unforeseen consequences. In December, when federal lawmakers went home for the holidays, legislative efforts to delay the effect of the reform act by four years had not yet succeeded. Some lawmakers expressed hope that legislation could be fasttracked in January after the recess. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com. that. What we havent been involved in is the transaction itself. Meek has been openly critical of the CCHB, particularly chairwoman Debbie Ressler, and thought the county commission should have more input into the transaction process. But when county commissioners considered their role in October, they limited it to post-transaction the creation and implementation of a community wide trust to oversee an estimated $90 million in net revenue from the HCA lease. That means Meek and county officials will watch from the sidelines as members of the hospital boards debate lawsuits and the HCA letter of intent. Meek said he preferred closer county involvement in the issue. Ive been very vocal that the commission should be more involved as a body, he said. The majority of the commission said they dont want to get involved in that process.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com.

Cops issue lottery tickets to speedersMELBOURNE Police in a central Florida city have been issuing scratch-off lottery tickets instead of speeding tickets to Christmas Day travelers. By early Wednesday afternoon, Melbourne Police officers had handed out 30 lottery tickets along with warnings to drivers caught speeding or making other traffic violations. Sgt. Jamie Rocque told Florida Today that officers bought the lottery tickets with their own money to spread a bit of holiday cheer while ensuring public safety. Rocque said the officers have been getting a lot of surprised looks.Leaders betting lots on upcoming SunRail launchORLANDO Central Florida will learn a lot about its transportation with the upcoming launch of the SunRail commuter train. The train begins taking its first passengers in May for the initial 32-mile phase of the project after years of debate about its viability in an area where residents have depended on their cars to travel between cities. Gov. Rick Scott passed on federal money for a highspeed train from Tampa to Orlando, but approved the $1.2 billion SunRail in 2011 after being convinced of its jobs creation benefits and potential to alleviate traffic on oft-congested Interstate 4. But now federal money for the second phase slated for 2016 is in peril because of potential budget cuts. Still officials remain optimistic that SunRail can be a game changer for the area.Surfing Santas catch some waves on Christmas EveCOCOA BEACH More than 210 surfers dressed as Santa Claus, elves and snowmen were spotted surfing the Christmas Eve waves off central Floridas Atlantic coast. Florida Today reported that when Cocoa Beach Mayor Dave Netterstrom took in the view from the sand Tuesday, he declared the fourth-annual gathering the largest surfing Santa event on the planet. Organizer George Trosset said he may move the holiday event to downtown Cocoa Beach next year to accommodate growing crowds. He started the tradition in 2009 with a few family members after seeing a television commercial featuring people surfing in Santa Claus attire. More friends joined them the following year, and in 2012 nearly 160 surfers participated. Trosset said the event has gone from being a little family party to being a community event.A6THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION/STATE For Information and costs,call 726-8323 Burial Shipping CremationFuneral HomeWith Crematory000EHVX 000GJI4 New Years Eve Ball New Years Eve Ball Tues.

Obituaries Death ELWEWHERE From wire reports Capitols dome set for renovation Associated PressWASHINGTON A world-famous symbol of democracy is going under cover, as workers start a two-year, $60 million renovation of the U.S. Capitol dome. Curved rows of scaffolds, like Saturns rings, will encircle it next spring, enabling contractors to strip multiple layers of paint and repair more than 1,000 cracks and broken pieces. The dome will remain illuminated at night and partly visible through the scaffolding and paint-capturing cloths. But the Washington icon and portions of the Rotundas painted ceiling that lies below will be significantly obscured for many months. The project is beginning just as the nearby Washington Monument sheds scaffolding that was used to repair damage from a 2011 earthquake. Half-completed when Abraham Lincoln stood beneath it to summon the better angels of our nature in 1861, the Capitol dome has since towered over Washington, which limits building heights to 130 feet. Time, however, has let water seep through hundreds of cracks. The water attacks cast iron, which continues to rust and rust and rust, said Stephen T. Ayers, Architect of the Capitol. This first major renovation in more than 50 years should add decades of structural integrity to the dome, which Ayers calls perhaps the most recognizable symbol across the globe. The $60 million undertaking will heal inner wounds, he said, without changing the way the dome looks from the ground. Much of the work will be done at night and on weekends. It wont be as flashy as the 1993 helicopter removal and return of the 19foot Statue of Freedom from the domes top. The Capitols crowning piece is actually two domes, one nested under the other like Russian dolls, and separated by a web of cast iron braces hidden from view. From the ground it looks like a massive structure that would be too heavy for the building to support if it were indeed made of the solid stone it appears to be. Instead it is cast iron painted to look like masonry. The lighter material and open space between the inner and outer domes create a physically sustainable structure. But its by no means puny. The domes iron and masonry weigh 14.1 million pounds, said Kevin Hildebrand of the Capitol architects office. He led reporters up narrow, spiraling stairs that reach the Rotundas top, and then give access to the in-between world of girders separating the two domes. Ultimately the steps lead outdoors, to a panoramic walkway beneath the 12-columned lantern, or tholos, topped by the Statue of Freedom. After a 1990 rainstorm left puddles on the Rotundas stone floor, workers found that bird nests had clogged gutters atop the Capitol, helping water penetrate outer walls and streak interior surfaces. Then they found bigger problems. Hundreds of cracks and pinholes in the cast iron exterior added to the seepage. Pans now capture the water. Congress finally agreed to spend $60 million for a better, more lasting solution. It is the symbol of our country, Hildebrand said. It is an icon that has to be preserved. The 150-year-old cast iron is low-quality by todays standards, he said. Its an archaic material, Hildebrand said. A dome today probably would be built with glass and steel, he said. But Capitol workers must deal with relatively brittle iron that doesnt respond well to welding. First they must remove, capture and safely dispose several layers of lead-based paint. When they reach bare iron, they must quickly prime and paint it section by section, Hildebrand said, because it will flash rust in eight hours. To mend cracks, workers will drill and tap damaged areas, and then insert steel pins. Metal stitching will complete the process. Before repairing water damage inside the Rotunda, workers will hang a giant doughnut-shaped drop cloth just below the painted ceiling. Rotunda visitors whose necks can stand the crane will still see The Apotheosis of Washington through the doughnut hole. The 4,664 square-foot painting, 180 feet above the Rotunda floor, depicts George Washington becoming god-like, aided by figures from classical mythology. If these repairs are not made, the artwork in the Rotunda, including the Apotheosis of Washington and the Frieze of American History, are at great risk of damage due to water leaks, says the Architect of the Capitols Web site. There is only one Capitol Dome, it says, and the office is committed to preserving it for generations to come. The architects office will update the renovations progress at www.aoc.gov/dome.

OPINION Page A8THURSDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2013 Hooray for blocking bookletWe owe thanks to our Citrus County School Board for resisting (in 2011) the persistent attempts to distribute a pocketsize U.S. Constitution to our school children that was published with a commentary and advertisement. The U.S. Constitution is the law of this land and deserves respect, and not to be used as an excuse to promote ideological political agendas. Recently those same pocket Constitution pamphlets showed up again, but this time a Florida Supreme Court Justice asked that the distribution of these booklets be stopped. The material was published by a conservative group that opposes the separation of church and state and that asserts (incorrectly) that the Constitution is based on Christian scripture. A version of the pocket Constitution includes an advertisement for W. Cleon Skousens works. Mr. Skousen, a Mormon, was a faith-based political theorist who founded the Freeman Institute in 1971, which later became the National Center for Constitutional Studies, which published the 80,000 copies targeting Florida school children. Our school board rightly refused to distribute the pamphlets because they promoted politics and religion, which is forbidden by school district policy for distribution to students. Leave it to our teachers to provide history and civic classes in school, and parents to provide religion (or not) to their children at home.Augie Nero Inverness Well, God bless Willie Nelson. The country legend has canceled a coming performance at SeaWorld Orlando because of a CNN documentary called Blackfish, a profoundly disturbing account of the theme parks exploitation of captive killer whales. If you havent yet seen Blackfish, download it today. The film has been shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination, with good reason. Last week, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart also scratched a SeaWorld show amid the outcry. The rock group has roots in Seattle, which isnt far from the site of brutal roundups of baby killer whales during the late 1960s and early s. The early minutes of Blackfish present footage of one such expedition, and its heartwrenching to observe the misery of the adult whales as the young ones are netted and loaded on ships. (Those that died were slit open, loaded with weights and sunk to conceal the evidence.) One of those captured whales is still performing as Lolita at the Miami Seaquarium. Another that was snatched 30 years ago from the waters off Iceland is in the Shamu extravaganza at SeaWorld Orlando. Its name is Tilikum, the subject of Blackfish. At six tons, Tili is said to be the largest bull orca in captivity. Its also one of the most volatile and emotionally damaged, involved in three human deaths. The first occurred in 1991 at a cut-rate attraction in British Columbia. A young student worker was killed after she slipped into a tank holding Tilikum and two other orcas. The facility closed permanently after the tragedy, but Tilikum was purchased by SeaWorld and put on display in Orlando. In 1990, a man slipped past employees and climbed into Tilikums tank at night. The next morning the man was found dead, mutilated and draped naked across the whales back. Cause of death was ruled to be drowning or hypothermia. Then, in February 2010, Tilikum fatally mauled a veteran trainer, Dawn Brancheau as horrified tourists videotaped the sequence. SeaWorld said the accident was Brancheaus fault, implying that she somehow agitated the whale with her ponytail. The accusation infuriated other trainers, some of whom speak out in the documentary. After a hearing, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration ruled that SeaWorld subjected its trainers to a hazardous environment, and ordered barriers erected to separate the whales from the employees. A federal judge agreed. The company has appealed. Orcas are complex, highly intelligent mammals that in the wild would be traveling vast distances in close-knit family pods. Captive specimens spend their days in glorified guppy ponds performing stunts designed purely to amuse paying customers. In a toothless response to Blackfish, Michael Scarpuzzi of San Diego SeaWorld defended the companys educational presentation of orcas, and noted the thousands of uneventful interactions between trainers and whales during exercise, play and enrichment. Before Tilikum attacked Brancheau, the whale had been directed to perform the standard though not-so-enriching task of circling the pool while flapping one pectoral fin to give the appearance of waving. You wont see that clownish gesture from the orcas in Puget Sound, but the captive ones do it because they receive handfuls of dead fish as a payoff. Tilikum evidently missed a whistle cue, the fish snack was withheld and the rest is tragedy. Theres no denying that places like SeaWorld and the Seaquarium have educated millions of people about the beauty of orcas. Nor does the documentary leave any doubt that the trainers and vets who work directly with the whales care passionately for them. It doesnt change the fact that they exist in a state of extreme and stressful confinement. Imagine spending your whole life in a backyard swimming pool. Think you might get depressed every now and then? Bored out of your skull? Pissed off? Significantly, there have been no documented fatal attacks on a person by a wild orca. In captivity orcas are responsible for several deaths and many injuries. Despite a history of lethal violence, Tilikum remains a star at SeaWorld. Thats because hes a very valuable asset his sperm, especially. The capture of orcas was banned by the United States in 1972, so theme parks rely on captive breeding for their babies. Tilikum is a major stud, having sired more than 20 offspring for the company. Even with its trainers barred from swimming with the whales, SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. managed to take in record profits of $120 million last quarter. The company now waits for the outrage over Blackfish to subside, as it eventually did after the Free Willy films in the 1990s. Meanwhile its working hard in court to overturn the OSHA decision and return to the old bareback-riding days. Said its lawyers: Contact with killer whales is essential to the product offered by SeaWorld.... The product being live, performing orca meat. After watching Blackfish, youll wonder if thats really what you want your kids to see on their next vacation.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

As the two hospital boards controlling Citrus Memorial try to agree on a letter of intent to send Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) we wish they would lower the tone of their rhetoric. It is important for HCA to hear what board members and the community hope to keep in place following the lease agreement, but the words should not be so sharp they cut themselves out of a deal completely. Board members should have a large wish list to include in the letter of intent, as long as they understand HCA may not grant all of their wishes. The two boards long ago lost any bargaining power they might have had. Their bickering and long legal battle has sapped the hospital of money, vitality and reputation. The HCA offer is the best chance our community has to restore Citrus Memorial to a semblance of its once proud stature. It would be a shame if arrogance and defiance were to somehow ruin this, too. When crafting the letter of intent, board members should keep as close to the language of the original request for proposal as possible to set the proper tone for future negotiations. A private business cannot be expected to tie in a 2013-14 business plan to a plan they may have in 2020. This will be a for-profit venture for them. Give it your best effort, but realize negotiations require compromise. THE ISSUE:Officials want HCA to keep hospital in Citrus.OUR OPINION:Tone down rhetoric.

We were in a very dangerous situation on the side of the road with 70 mph traffic passing by. We would like to express our sincere appreciation for two motorists who stopped and offered assistance. Two young men changed our tire and we were on our way safely home. There are some very good people in the area.

Id like to get my hands on some of them, too, but I have a feeling it might have been swimming a little too close to that nuclear power plant theyre shutting down.Dont need treesThis is in reflection to Military pay and benefits. Im a retired man with 26 years of service, 10 active and reserve and I receive about $1,100 a month What Id like to point out is the pay for the average low-grade military today. They get a housing allowance between $500 and $1,000 a month tax free, $400 food allowance, plus base pay and now theyre giving them Christmas trees free. I dont think they need it anywhere near as much as a Walmart worker would, because they probably get onefifth the pay that the military get. And also, the military receives free health care and a whole bunch of other fringe benefits tax free. So I dont think its necessary that the public has to feel sorry for the military pay and give them Christmas trees. Its just not necessary.Nice partyTo Liz and Deloris and their husbands: Thank you for (the) party at Franks Family Restaurant on Tuesday, Dec. 17. You made our Christmas special. We love you.

Public will love new health lawI have been reading in the newspaper for some time untruths, omissions and fabrications concerning the Affordable Care Act, or the ACA otherwise known as Obamacare. Even with the roll-out problems, 1.2 million people have signed up for health insurance on the Internet marketplace during the first two months. Some of the GOP scare tactics have been debunked no ones grandparents have died at the hands of a death panel, and Congress is not exempt, which was seen with the much publicized video of Boehner signing up on the computer. As more and more people sign up and see the insurance policies, more of the scare tactics will be shown to be what they are: lies. They will discover that the ACA isnt a government takeover of health care when they see that there are actual insurance companies with actual insurance policies from Blue Cross, or United Health Care or other well-known names. The furor over how our president lied about being able to keep your health insurance or your doctor is nothing but smoke and mirrors. If your insurance policy didnt include the changes like pre-existing condition going away, or lifetime cap going away or your children can stay on your policy until 26 then the insurance company had to cancel that policy and upgrade it. The new insurance will be better than your old policy and you will be able to go to your doctor. The newest GOP fabrication is about maternity coverage, and if youre a man why should you pay for it? Well, Im a woman, and my policy includes prostate exams and surgery and medications such as Viagra and Cialis! What will they come up with next? The biggest whopper is that the ACA is socialism, the worst name the GOP could come up with to make the ACA look really bad. Have you ever heard of the Heritage Foundation? It happens to be a conservative research think tank not exactly what you would call a socialistic organization. Well, you can thank them for the ACA, its their baby. The GOP presidential nominee actually put this health care plan into effect in Massachusetts, and it is working quite well there. As more and more Americans sign up and their policies go into effect, the more the lies will be shown as what they are: just scare tactics. Only time will tell. Cheryl Seronick HomosassaSelling jail bad ideaSelling the jail to Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) who by the way is doing a good job running the jail is not a good idea. Every so often, the contract to operate comes up for bid and in that contract is the cost to house county inmates. What people do not know is that CCA houses other types of inmates from federal agencies and others that pay a higher rate to CCA like INS, for one. If the jail is sold, there will be no contract negotiations and CCA can fill up the jail with higher-paying agency inmates, thus charging the county even higher rates to house county inmates. There will be no completion and the county will be forced to pay these higher rates or build another jail. Hernando County at one time did not renew their contract with CCA to operate their jail for various reasons. I am aware the county is trying to raise capital but this is a short term fix that will have a long term negative impact. Justin Krumholtz Inverness Thanks to Midway Animal HospitalOn Sunday, Dec. 8, from 10 to 3, the Midway Animal Hospital, Crystal River, had an open house to allow visitors to meet the staff and tour their facility. What they also did is have an animal adopt-a-thon on their property. There were a number of animals present and shown from the animal shelter that were up for adoption, which were adopted. There was also a fundraising benefit to help the American Cancer Society, a bake sale, foods and donations jar. They did well. My word of thanks to Midway for allowing their premises to be used for the animal adopt-a-thon and also for the American Cancer Society to raise funds on their premises.Support medical marijuanaIm 65 years old and I looked in the paper this morning, Tuesday, Dec. 17, in letters to the editor and there was a Medical Marijuana section that a man had written his name is Haydon Fouke about the advantages of medical marijuana. And I 100 percent agree with him that it needs to be legalized. Forget the recreational; its going to happen anyway Ive got chronic pain that will never go away and Im being treated by many doctors, such as he has. Hes also at 75, according to the letter. I think this particular drug needs to be legalized in Florida and, you know, followed through by a medical doctor. So I definitely agree and I think it should be legalized. And he addressed it to Attornney General Pam Bondi and she needs to open her eyes and understand the benefits and do more research on what medical marijuana can do for the elderly that have medical problems.Port Citrus a boondoggleA recent visit to Port Canaveral, the second busiest in Florida, made me realize how out of touch our county commission is in regard to developing Port Citrus. Port Canaveral has a controlling depth of 41 feet and can accommodate vessels with up to a 36 draft. The Cross Florida Barge Canal has controlling depth of 12 feet with about half that where the canal enters the land, which would mean frequent dredging. While its true there are shallow draft barges, most barges and commercial ships could not handle the 12-foot depth. The most striking thing about Port Canaveral is that it is ugly. The waterways are crowded with cruise ships and commercial shipping vessels. There are derricks, cranes and large oil storage facilities adjacent to neighborhoods. So even if Port Citrus was feasible, which it is not because of the shallow depth and lack of infrastructure, why would anyone want to risk building it on the Nature Coast? Now we are paying attorneys fees to fight citizens who dont want Port Citrus. Good money thrown after bad.Unwise to charge for old TVsAlthough its not clear from the fee schedule that the landfill printed on Oct. 1, theyre now charging to accept old television sets.

NATION& WORLD Page A10THURSDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Thousands left without power Some forced to spend Christmas in a shelter Associated PressLITCHFIELD, Maine Utility crews from Maine to Michigan and into Canada worked Wednesday to restore power to the more than half a million homes in the U.S. and Canada that were left in the dark by last weekends ice storm and people slowly trickled out of shelters to spend Christmas Day at their finallywarm homes. But not everyone was so lucky, including Ashley Walter, who was forced to spend Christmas at a shelter set up in a school in Litchfield, Maine, with her husband, Jacob, and their month-old daughter, Leah. The family lost power Saturday, got it back temporarily then lost it again Sunday and have been without since. Ashley, 27, and Leah stay warm at the shelter while Jacob makes frequent trips home to check on their cats and water pipes. Its definitely kind of strange but were hanging in there, she said Wednesday of the challenge of being forced out of their home at Christmas. We did our Christmas together last night. I packed little stockings and gave them to my husband, sisters and my daughter. The frigid temperatures that cloaked a region from the Great Lakes to New England meant that ice remained on power lines and limbs. Officials worried that wind gusts of more than 20 mph could bring down more branches and that 2 to 6 inches of snow in places on Thursday would hamper line crews trying to get to remote spots. The ice storm last weekend was one of the worst to hit during a Christmas week and repair crews were working around the clock to restore service. States that werent hit were sending crews to help. So far, authorities blame the storm for 27 deaths; 17 in the U.S. and 10 in Canada. Five people in Canada died from carbon monoxide poisoning from emergency generators powering their homes, while two people in Michigan, a man in Maine and a man in Vermont also died from the poisonous fumes. About 156,000 homes were still without power Wednesday evening in Michigan, down from more than 500,000 at the storms peak. In Canada, about 160,000 customers were without power Wednesday evening. There were 72,000 customers without power in Toronto, down from 300,000 at the height of the outages, and Mayor Rob Ford said some may not have power restored until the weekend. Associated PressChris Devine, center, hauls a sled of gifts Wednesday with his daughter Jordan, 11, left, and stepson Derek Gervais, 20, right, to their home on Maplehurst Lane in Belgrade, Maine. The Devine's lost power on Monday and have hauled their supplies in on sled ever since. Santas sleigh delayed after snags at UPS, FedExNEW YORK Santas sleigh didnt make it in time for Christmas for some this year due to shipping problems at UPS and FedEx. The delays were blamed on poor weather earlier this week in parts of the country as well as overloaded systems. The holiday shopping period this year was shorter than usual, more buying was done online and Americans tendency to wait until the last possible second to shop probably didnt help either. Neither company said how many packages were delayed but noted it was a small share of overall holiday shipments. While the bulk of consumers holiday spending remains at physical stores, shopping online is increasingly popular and outstripping spending growth in stores at the mall. The Associated Press spoke to people in Alabama, California, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia who didnt receive presents in time for Christmas.From wire reports Popes Christmas wish: hope for a better world Associated PressVATICAN CITY Pope Francis offered Christmas wishes Wednesday for a better world, praying for protection for Christians under attack, battered women and trafficked children, peace in the Middle East and Africa, and dignity for refugees fleeing misery and conflict around the globe. Francis delivered the traditional Urbi et Orbi (Latin for to the city and to the world) speech from the central balcony of St. Peters Basilica to more than 70,000 cheering tourists, pilgrims and Romans in the square below. In his first Christmas message since being elected pontiff in March, he asked for all to share in the song of Christmas angels, for every man or woman ... who hopes for a better world, who cares for others, humbly. Among places ravaged by conflict, Francis singled out Syria, which saw its third Christmas during civil war; South Sudan; the Central African Republic; Nigeria; and Iraq. In Iraq on Wednesday, militants targeted Christians in two attacks, including a bomb that exploded near a church during Christmas Mass in Baghdad. The separate bombings killed dozens of people. The Vatican has been trying to raise concern in the world for persecution and attacks on Christians in parts of the Middle East and Africa. Lord of life, protect all who are persecuted in your name, Francis said. Adding an off-the-cuff remark, Francis said he was also inviting non-believers to join their desire for peace with everyone else. The pope also prayed that God bless the land where you chose to come into the world and grant a favorable outcome to the peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians. Francis then explained his concept of peace. True peace is not a balancing of opposing forces. Its not a lovely facade which conceals conflicts and divisions, the pope said. Peace calls for daily commitment, Francis said, reading the pages of his speech as they were ruffled by a chilly wind. Egyptian govt names Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group Associated PressCAIRO Egypts military-backed interim government declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization Wednesday, intensifying its campaign of arrests and prosecutions targeting its members and tightening the noose on the groups network of charities and businesses. The unprecedented executive decision likely ends any chance of reconciliation between the government and the 85-yearold Brotherhood, still Egypts most organized political group. It marks a stunning reversal of fortunes for the long-outlawed organization that saw member Mohammed Morsi reach Egypts highest office in the countrys first democratic election, only to be ousted in a popularly backed military coup in July. And it takes a step that not even autocrat Hosni Mubarak took in his nearly 30-year rule. Hossam Eissa, deputy prime minister and minister of higher education, read the governments declaration, saying the decision was in response to Tuesdays deadly bombing in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura which killed 16 people and wounded more than 100. It was the deadliest militant bombing since Morsis ouster and showed growing reach of the countrys Islamic insurgency, previously concentrated in the northern Sinai. Although Eissa and the government offered no proof of the Brotherhoods involvement, the accusation instilled in the public mind the image of the group as being behind the surge in violent attacks. The Brotherhood has denied being responsible for the Mansoura attack. Earlier Wednesday, an al-Qaida-inspired group called Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, or the Champions of Jerusalem, said it was behind the suicide bombing to avenge the shedding of innocent Muslim blood at the hands of Egypts apostate regime a reference to the security forces crackdown on Islamists following the coup. Brotherhood members dismissed the government label Wednesday, promising their near-daily protests against Morsis ouster would continue. The protests are in the streets despite a law restricting them and killings and prison sentences. All this has not changed the will of the people, said Ibrahim Elsayed, member of the Brotherhoods political group, the Freedom and Justice Party. Associated PressPope Francis delivers his Christmas message Wednesday from the central balcony of St. Peters Basilica at the Vatican. Associated PressAn Egyptian man mourns Wednesday during the funeral for victims killed from an explosion at a police headquarters, in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura, 70 miles north of Cairo, Egypt. World BRIEFS Bombings kill 37 in IraqBAGHDAD Militants in Iraq targeted Christians in three separate Christmas Day bombings in Baghdad, killing at least 37 people, officials said Wednesday. In one attack, a car bomb went off near a church in the capitals southern Dora neighborhood, killing at least 26 people and wounding 38, a police officer said. Earlier, two bombs ripped through a nearby outdoor market simultaneously in the Christian section of Athorien, killing 11 people and wounding 21, the officer said. The Iraq-based leader of the Chaldean Catholic Church, Louis Sako, said the parked car bomb exploded after Christmas Mass and that none of the worshippers were hurt. Sako said he didnt believe the church was the target.Russia drops charges against Greenpeace crewST. PETERSBURG, Russia Russian investigators have dropped charges against all but one of the 30 crew of a Greenpeace ship, who were accused of hooliganism following a protest outside a Russian oil rig in the Arctic, the group said Wednesday. Cristian dAlessandro of Italy failed to get his criminal case closed due to the lack of an interpreter and will have to visit the St. Petersburg branch of Russias Investigative Committee again on Thursday, said Violetta Ryabko, a Greenpeace spokeswoman. The 30 crew members aboard a Greenpeace ship were detained in September and held in custody for two months before they were released on bail in November. They had originally been charged with piracy.Iran lawmakers introduce uranium-enrichment billTEHRAN, Iran Some 100 Iranian lawmakers introduced a bill in parliament that would force the government to increase uranium enrichment to 60 percent if new sanctions are imposed on the Islamic Republic, state television reported Wednesday. The broadcaster said the bill would be put on parliaments agenda for a debate, but didnt say when it would discussed. The bill has to be approved by the 290-seat house and then be ratified by a constitutional watchdog in order to become law. The bill is likely a response to a legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate last week that would authorize new economic sanctions on Iran if it breaches the interim nuclear deal reached in Geneva last month or fails to strike a final agreement. From wire reports Three children die in home fireHOUMA, La. A mobile home fire in Louisiana killed three children and injured seven others early on Christmas Day, fire officials said. Two brothers, ages 12 and 11, and their 13-year-old sister died at the Whispering Oaks Trailer Park in Houma, said District Chief Lance LaMarca of the state Fire Marshals office. Another sibling, the childrens parents and four other children were taken to a Baton Rouge burn unit, LaMarca said. The trailer was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, Houma Fire Inspector Mike Millet said. The childrens father rescued one child after smoke came under his bedroom door, but was unable to get the other three because the fire spread so quickly, LaMarca said. The dead childrens father was the most severely burned, LaMarca said, followed by their mother. He said all the survivors are expected to recover. The mother and another child escaped through a window, while relatives sleeping in another bedroom at the opposite end of the mobile home got out through a back door. From wire reports Nation BRIEF

Roper has agreed to leave Duke to become the offensive coordinator for the Gators, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday night on condition of anonymity because the hiring has not been announced. Roper spent several hours with Florida coach Will Muschamp in Gainesville on Monday. He is expected to remain with the Blue Devils through the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31. ESPN was the first to report the decision. A Florida spokesman declined comment when reached by The Associated Press. Roper replaces Brent Pease, who was fired the day after Florida (4-8) completed its first losing season since 1979. Floridas offense ranked 112th nationally the third straight year it placed 100th or worse. Muschamp also fired offensive line coach Tim Davis. Muschamps next offensive coordinator had been considered the most important hire in his tenure, a choice that surely will impact whether the head coach sticks around beyond 2014. If Florida doesnt show significant improvement in Muschamps fourth year he is 22-16 through three seasons athletic director Jeremy Foley certainly will clean house. Muschamp had been expected to interview several potential candidates, a couple even after the bowl season. But he wasted little time offering Roper the job, although many believe Southern Californias Clay Helton was Floridas top choice. Helton decided last week to stay at USC under new coach Steve Sarkisian. Roper, meanwhile, followed coach David Cutcliffe to Duke in 2008 from Tennessee and helped rebuild the Blue Devils from one of the nations worst power-conference programs to the champions of the Atlantic Coast Conferences Coastal Division. Roper was a finalist this year for the Broyles Award, given to the nations top assistant coach. The offensive coordinator 2013 AP FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE YEARSimply Serena Williams wins award for third time Associated PressSerena Williams likes to make one thing clear: She is never satisfied, no matter how many matches and tournaments she wins. Driven as ever, Williams won plenty this year. She went 78-4 with 11 titles, including at the French Open and U.S. Open, raising her Grand Slam championship total to 17. She compiled a 34-match winning streak. She earned more than $12 million in prize money, a record for womens tennis. In February, she became the oldest No. 1 in WTA rankings history and never left that perch. Thanks to all of that, Williams was honored Wednesday as The Associated Press 2013 Female Athlete of the Year. Its the third AP award for Williams, following 2002 and 2009. Only two women have been chosen more often as AP Athlete of the Year since the annual awards were first handed out in 1931. Whenever I lose, I get more determined, and it gives me something more to work toward, Williams told the AP in an interview shortly before the start of the U.S. Open. I dont get complacent, and I realize I need to work harder and I need to do better and I want to do better or I wouldnt keep playing this game. The vote by news organizations was about as lopsided as many of Williams matches this season. She received 55 of 96 votes, while Brittney Griner, a twotime AP Player of the Year in college basketball and the No. 1 pick in Aprils WNBA draft, finished second with 14. Swimmer Missy Franklin was next with 10. The Male Athlete of the Year recipient will be announced today. Williams, who grew up in Compton, Calif., and turned 32 in September, produced the finest womens tennis season in years. According to the WTA:her .951 winning percentage was the best since Steffi Grafs .977 in 1989;her 11 titles were the most since Martina Hingis 12 in 1997;her winning streak was the longest since her sister, Venus, had a 35-match run in 2000. She just continues to be an inspiration to American tennis, said Gordon Smith, the executive director of the U.S. Tennis Association, which runs the U.S. Open. Her year this year? Unforgettable. By adding a fifth career U.S. Open championship, and a second French Open title, Williams also moved within one Grand Slam trophy of the 18 apiece won by Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. The record is 24 by Margaret Court. Pretty heady company. Evert is one of the only two women with more AP awards than Williams. Evert won four from 1974-80, while Babe Didrikson collected a record six one for track in 1932, and five for golf from 1945-54. Serena already has provided significant contributions to taking our sport to the next level. ... She is chasing records and no doubt will break many records before shes finished, WTA Chairman Stacey Allaster said. That obviously just brings a lot more attention to our sport. Two particular moments in 2013 stuck out to Allaster. One came at Qatar in February, when Williams cried after assuring herself of returning to No. 1 for the first time since 2010, the year the American needed two operations on her right foot and got blood clots in her lungs. You could see the joy, the tears of joy. It meant so much to her, from everything she had been through, to be able to be back at the top of the sport, a sport that she does truly love, Allaster said. The second moment came during Wimbledon, when Williams joined other women who have been ranked No. 1 at a celebration of the WTAs 40th anniversary. It was an opportunity to see her in a leadership position. ... She did a remarkable job at speaking on behalf of all those great athletes and speaking to future players, Allaster said. Theres a little girl, perhaps out there in Compton, who is dreaming of playing on the WTA, and Serena said, Were waiting for you, and we cant wait to meet you. Associated PressSerena Williams holds up the championship trophy Sept. 8, 2013, after defeating Victoria Azarenka during the womens singles final of the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York. Williams is The Associated Press 2013 Female Athlete of the Year, easily winning a vote by news organizations.

Same for LeBron James. Playing without its biggest star, Los Angeles stayed right with the Miami Heat for most of the day before slipping to a 101-95 loss against the defending NBA champions on Wednesday. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade had 23 points apiece, and James added 19 points in the Heats sixth straight win. Bosh grabbed 11 rebounds and Ray Allen made four 3-pointers for 12 points, helping Miami improve to 5-0 against the Lakers on the holiday. I knew we would get a good game out of them, and I think the NBA wanted a good game, James said, noting the blowout results of the first two games on the leagues holiday schedule. Bryant was relegated to the sideline with his fractured left knee, leaving him unable to extend his NBA record for Christmas Day appearances to 16. Its not as special when Kobes not out there, said James, who shared a post-game hug with Bryant. Streaky reserve Nick Young scored 20 points for the Lakers, who were tied four times in the fourth quarter. Jodie Meeks added 17 points, Xavier Henry had 14 and Pau Gasol added 13 points and 13 rebounds. Miami shot 51 percent from the field while improving to 7-0 against the Western Conference this season. It was its 19th straight win overall against West opponents. Bosh scored 13 of his 23 points in the first half, when Miami trailed 27-21 after the first quarter.

Unfortunately, its time to wrap up the series of columns on fishing the Nature Coast waters from paddle craft. I say its unfortunate because readers are still commenting and theres a great deal more to say. However, one has to draw a line somewhere, and this week is it. Feel free to continue sending comments my way, via email or telephone. Among people who have tried fishing local waters from canoes (a relative handful) and kayaks (large majority), one theme repeated itself regularly. Yes, most talked of being able to get into shallow areas not navigable by power craft except air boats, and being able to stalk fish, especially redfish, without spooking them. However, threaded into notes touting the advantages in terms of numbers of fish, was the stillness, the early morning beauty, the ability to observe both fish and wildlife that would have ducked for cover at the sound of a motor. Which is not to say detractors dont make good points. For an interesting perspective, Ill use Ty and Delores Belangers comments. Delores (who founded the Nature Coast Lady Anglers Club, you may recall) said she actually started using a kayak because she couldnt cast far enough. There were too many times, she said, when they had to lay off fish for fear of spooking them with their powerboat, and while Ty could reach them, she could not. So, she reasoned, if the mountain wont come to Mohammed She started taking a kayak along so she could sneak in closer, liked it, and began using the kayak alone. Ty, however, has another take. This is specific to the kayak I borrowed, he pointed out, I know not all paddle craft applies to my experience. He then went on to point out the disadvantages he sees. Distance is limited, and you have to limit your gear considerably. I dont want to say, Oh, I wish I had brought this lure or that lure, but didnt have room. Live bait is a challenge and takes too much space. Sight fishing is difficult unless you have an expensive craft that allows you to stand. There were some other negatives, but they could have been problems specific to the craft he was using, so Ive omitted them. Obviously, paddle angling isnt for everyone, and, like most outdoor recreational activities, it isnt perfect. There are drawbacks in every endeavor; still hunting versus tree stands, swingthrough versus fixed leads on birds, artificial versus natural baits, paddles versus power. One thing is certain if youre thinking about giving kayak angling a try, you need to talk with those who have done it, and before buying a kayak you need to talk with knowledgeable dealers in order to find the type of boat and hull that suits you best. Were fortunate in that we have many such dealers locally, and in many cases theyre happy to let you toss one in the water and give it a try. Theresa was down at River Sport in Homosassa looking for some accessories and mentioned she was considering a second kayak strictly for angling. As it happened, they had a Perception Tribe (www.perception kayaks.com) that had been traded in and the hull configuration caught her eye, so she tried it out to see if it would be as stable as it appeared. It was, but what impressed her even more was the way it tracked (tended to hold a straight line). She bought it.

Tide charts RG SchmidtTIGHT LINES OutdoorsNEWS Talk with the experts before selecting the right kayak Final license-free fishing day Saturday TALLAHASSEE Governor Rick Scott and FWC have announced Dec. 28 will be the last freshwater license-free fishing day for 2013. Although no fishing license is required, all other fishing and boating rules and regulations still apply (see MyFWC.com/Fishing for details). Beginning in 2014, there will be eight license-free fishing days that will fall on the same weekend days from year to year. This will allow anglers to plan fishing trips in advance and businesses and nonprofit groups to create events around these fishing license holidays. According to the American Sportfishing Association, Florida had 1.2 million non-resident anglers visit the Sunshine State in 2011. Regular season wraps up with playoff spots to be determined Associated PressThe New York Giants want to go all out to make a final positive impression in case coach Tom Coughlins job is insecure which it almost certainly is not. How the Washington Redskins respond to Mike Shanahans potentially final day as coach is more uncertain. New York was awful and seemingly disinterested two weeks ago in a home loss to Seattle. But the Giants responded nicely in winning at Detroit to knock the Lions from postseason contention. Many Giants cited their respect for Coughlin, who has won two Super Bowls with them but also has had non-playoff finishes in five seasons at the helm. Im looking ahead, defensive leader Justin Tuck said. Anytime you go into a season like this, you always take time out at the end of the year to go over the goods, the bads and the ugly. Im looking forward to getting back to the top of the heap. You have to shift your focus to thinking about what next year can be because, obviously, this year is kind of a lost cause. Again, weve got one more game to go, and were going to go out there and play it just as if we were a playoff team and needed the win. Even if the Redskins (No. 31, AP Pro32) can beat the Giants (No. 24, AP Pro32), who are favored by 3 1/2 points at the Meadowlands, it figures to mean little for Shanahan. Given Washingtons collapse from division champion to 3-12, criticism of the coachs handling of quarterback Robert Griffin III, and the fact Shanahan is 24-40 in charge in D.C., well, not even a rout of the Giants might matter. Weve got a very mature football team and guys are taking care of business the last couple of weeks, says Shanahan, whose team has dropped seven in a row. Its no different. I like the way they handle themselves. I like the way they prepare. This week will be no different. As far as the Redskins losing again, Shanahan is correct.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE I just made an effort to get to the basket a little more, he said. We just kept wearing on them offensively. They made some tough shots. Los Angeles shot 42 percent in its third straight loss. The Lakers were 14 of 36 from 3-point range as they tried to go over the top to beat the Heats rugged interior. Teams will try to get us moving and play out of our rotations, Heat coach Eric Spoelstra said. Early on they were getting some wide-open ones. Some of those Nick Young hit were tough. Jordan Farmar returned from a left hamstring tear after missing 10 games, giving the Lakers a true point guard to run the offense. But he was ineffective, with three points and two assists in 32 minutes. I hadnt even played 5-on-5 since I got hurt, so this is the first time Ive actually played basketball, he said. Health-wise, everything stayed intact and I felt good out there, so its progress. The Lakers played a competitive game against the loaded Heat despite their poor shooting and the absence of Bryant, Steve Nash (nerve root irritation) and Steve Blake (right elbow). They led by 10 points and never trailed by more than that. I thought we attacked them the way we wanted to, Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said. We can step it up a bit and be a little bit tougher, especially on the boards and places like that. Those things are irritating, but the effort is good. Youngs basket tied the game for the last time at 83-all. The Heat promptly took off on a 13-5 run. Wade, Norris Cole and James scored all of the Heats points. Young answered with his fourth 3-pointer of the game and Meeks made 1 of 2 free throws to pull the Lakers to 96-92 with 1:26 to play. But Wade had an acrobatic reverse layup and James made two foul shots to give Miami some breathing room. Young scored 12 points in the third, when the Lakers trailed by nine before scoring the final seven points of the period, capped by Youngs 3-pointer, to trail 76-74 heading into the fourth.

Before joining Duke, Roper coached at three Southeastern Conference schools Tennessee (2006-07), Kentucky (2005) and Mississippi with Cutcliffe (1999-2004). So he has extensive SEC experience, having coached quarterbacks at Kentucky and Ole Miss, and running backs at Tennessee before arriving in Durham, N.C. In addition to his role as offensive coordinator, he has served as assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach at Duke. Florida is looking to change its offense from a pro-style, run-oriented scheme to an up-tempo system that features more spread formations. The Gators managed just 279 yards in a 26-20 loss to lower-division Georgia Southern on Nov. 23 and then 193 in a season-ending 37-7 loss to Florida State. Florida lost its final seven games and missed a bowl game for the first time since 1990. The Gators threw just four touchdown passes during that losing streak. Over the last two seasons, Duke averaged more than 30 points per game. Duke averaged 408.1 yards and 31.6 points this season, ranking sixth in the ACC in both categories. ROPERContinued from Page B1 Packers LB Clay Matthews out for Bears gameGREEN BAY, Wis. Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss Sundays game against the Chicago Bears for the NFC North title after aggravating a right thumb injury. Green Bay didnt practice Wednesday but issued an injury report as if it did. Matthews was listed as out. Matthews got hurt during a sack in Sundays 38-31 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Matthews missed four games earlier this season after initially breaking the thumb in Week 5 in October. Matthews looked to be in extreme pain on the sideline Sunday after the sack. Coach Mike McCarthy has described it as a repeat injury. The Packers return to practice today, when the team is expected to announce if quarterback Aaron Rodgers is ready to return from a left collarbone injury.Welker returns to practice fieldENGLEWOOD, Colo. Wes Welker returned to the Denver Broncos practice field on Christmas Day for the first time since suffering his second concussion on Dec. 8. He was allowed to participate on a limited basis according to the leagues concussion protocol. Also returning to practice was defensive end Derek Wolfe, who hadnt practiced since having a seizure-like episode on the team bus trip to the airport on Nov. 29. And rookie cornerback Kayvon Webster practiced for the first time since undergoing surgery on his right thumb Dec. 13 after breaking it in the first half against San Diego the night before.Tanakas team says he can seek career in MLBTOKYO Pitcher Masahiro Tanaka is set to move to the majors next season after his Japanese team Rakuten Eagles said Wednesday it was prepared to let him leave, reversing its earlier rejection. Rakuten Eagles president Yozo Tachibana told a news conference that it has decided to release him through the posting system. Tachinbana said Tanakas outstanding performance this season meant he deserved to be allowed to move to the U.S. Tanaka went 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA with the Eagles during the regular season and sought a move the majors but he has two years remaining on his contract and Rakuten was under no obligation to release him. Posting is now capped at $20 million, and Tanaka can choose from among the teams which meet that price.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Huskies face Utah State Associated PressSAN DIEGO Jordan Lynch will make a run at history tonight when he suits up for the final time for No. 24 Northern Illinois in the Poinsettia Bowl against Utah State. Lynch already owns the major college record for yards rushing for a quarterback with 1,881. With 119 yards, he can become the first player to rush for 2,000 yards and throw for 2,000. Im just really proud of him and wish I had him for about 10 more years but we dont, NIU coach Rod Carey said. This is the last game we get him. Thats the biggest thing with him. Lynch has passed for 2,676 yards and 23 touchdowns. Hes rushed for 22 scores and even caught a touchdown pass in leading the Huskies to a 12-1 record. Listen, we ask him to do a lot, and its not because thats our system. Its because he can, Carey said. Those are the things that amaze you. He makes the complicated things and the hard things skillwise look easy. Thats what amazes you every day. You tell him one time one play and then its done. Its locked in a vault. Thats what is amazing to me. Thats why Lynch was named to The Associated Press All-America team as an all-purpose player. Utah State coach Matt Wells knows Lynch has quite the supporting cast in fellow 1,000-yard rusher Cameron Stingily and wide receivers Tommylee Lewis and DaRon Brown. Jordan Lynch is fun to watch its not fun to watch because you understand youre going to have to defend him, but from a quarterback perspective, Ive got a lot of respect for him, said Wells, who played quarterback at Utah State in the mid-1990s. The guy is an 1,800-yard running back, and by the way hes over 60-percent completion and 3-to-1 touchdown-interception ratio. Its amazing, and thats back-to-back years. As you study him and the things that hes done since hes become a starter, hes a flat-out winner, Wells said. I said to Rod last Wednesday when we were talking, you know, its almost like its a once-in-alifetime young man to coach because I know hes the face of that program and everything that hes meant to that staff and that program and that city, that university. Here are five things to look for when Northern Illinois plays Utah State (8-5): LYNCH PIN: Lynch accounts for 65 percent of the NIU offense with 1,881 yards rushing, 2,676 passing and 43 touchdowns. Hes 24-3 as the starter in two seasons. His eight 100-yard rushing games include two of more than 300 yards. CONSOLATION PRIZE: The teams are coming off losses in conference championship games. NIU, the Mid-American Conference West Division champion, was routed 47-27 by Bowling Green in the conference title game. Utah State, which edged Boise State for the Mountain West Mountain Division title, lost 24-17 to Fresno State in the league championship game. SKILL GUYS: Lynch isnt a one-man band. Cameron Stingily has 1,081 yards rushing, giving NIU its first 1,000-yard rushing tandem. Three wide receivers have at least 30 catches each: Tommylee Lewis has 80 catches for 660 yards and three touchdowns, DaRon Brown has 42 catches for 689 yards and nine scores and Juwan Brescacin has 30 catches for 469 yards and five TDs. LINEBACKERS: Jake Doughty and Zach Vigil lead an Aggies defense that has intercepted 16 passes in its last nine games and scored three touchdowns in 2013. Doughty has 140 tackles, two sacks, an interception, one fumble recovery which he returned 86 yards for a TD against Fresno State and one forced fumble. Vigil has 115 tackles, two sacks, one interception, two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles. BOWLING: NIU is playing in its sixth straight bowl game and second Poinsettia Bowl. It lost 37-7 to TCU in 2006 Poinsettia Bowl. Utah State is playing in its school-record third straight bowl game. The Aggies are facing a MAC team in a bowl for the third straight year and the fourth time overall. They beat Toledo in last years Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, lost to Ohio in the 2011 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl and beat Ball State in the 1993 Las Vegas Bowl.B4THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS 000GZ3E Associated PressNorthern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch looks to make a pass Nov. 13 against Ball State in DeKalb, Ill.

Lynch already owns the major college record for yards rushing for a quarterback with 1,881. With 119 yards, he can become the first player to rush for 2,000 yards and throw for 2,000. NIUs Lynch makes a run at history in Poinsettia Bowl Thunder roll over Knicks Associated PressNEW YORK Kevin Durant scored 29 points, Russell Westbrook had a triple-double by the middle of the third quarter, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rolled to a 123-94 victory Wednesday over the New York Knicks, who played without Carmelo Anthony. The Durant-Anthony showdown between the NBAs top two scorers was canceled because of Anthonys sprained left ankle, so the Thunder had the Christmas spotlight all to themselves while winning for the 10th time in 11 games. Westbrook finished with 14 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in his first triple-double of the season and seventh of his career. Serge Ibaka added 24 points on 10-of14 shooting. Amare Stoudemire scored a season-high 22 points, and Tim Hardaway Jr. had 21 for the Knicks, who also were missing starting point guard Raymond Felton. J.R. Smith scored 20 points, but shot 8 for 22 and was booed when he left the court for good.Bulls 95, Nets 78NEW YORK Taj Gibson scored 20 points and Jimmy Butler added 15, and the Chicago Bulls routed the Brooklyn Nets 95-78. Trailing 50-49 early in the third quarter, the Bulls took over behind Butler. He keyed a 21-5 run that gave Chicago control. Butler, who sat out the last game with a right ankle injury, started the burst with a 3-pointer and then soon added a three-point play that made it 57-52. That was the first of 12 straight points by the Bulls. Another three-point play by Butler made it 66-52. Chicago (11-16) led by 19 at the end of the period after Reggie Evans dunk with less than a second left ended a 5 1/2-minute field goal drought for the Nets (9-19). Brooklyn couldnt get much closer in the fourth and was serenaded with a chorus of loud boos from the fans. What once was viewed as a Christmas Day showdown between Eastern Conference contenders became a matchup of two of the NBAs biggest disappointments so far, as both teams have been plagued by injuries.Rockets 111, Spurs 98SAN ANTONIO James Harden scored 28 points and Dwight Howard had 15 points and 20 rebounds, leading the balanced Houston Rockets to a 111-98 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season. San Antonio (22-7) still leads the Southwest Division by 3 1/2 games over Houston. Chandler Parsons and Terrence Jones each scored 21 points for the Rockets (19-11), who shot 52 percent from the field. Jeremy Lin had 13 points, eight assists and just one turnover. Bowling Green looks for repeat performance at Ford Field Falcons take on Pitt in Pizza Bowl Associated PressDETROIT Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald won a slew of awards this year. The senior is hoping to close the season with a win tonight against Bowling Green at the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl to help the Panthers finish with a winning record for the first time since he was a freshman. The Falcons wont be easy to beat. Bowling Green (10-3) is favored to top the Panthers (6-6) at Ford Field, where it defeated previously unbeaten and 16th-ranked Northern Illinois in the Mid-American Conference championship game earlier this month. The impressive victory and the programs turnaround led to Wake Forest hiring coach Dave Clawson away from the Falcons. Bowling Green picked former Eastern Illinois coach Dino Babers to replace Clawson but will be led in the bowl game by interim coach Adam Scheier. Here are some things to watch when Pittsburgh and Bowling Green match up in the Motor City: DOMINANT DONALD: Donald won the Lombardi, Outland, Nagurski and Bednarik awards and was the ACC defensive player of the year. The 6-foot, 285-pound defensive tackle had 10 sacks this season and led the nation with 2.2 tackles for loss per game. Hes a disruptive force, Scheier said. Were just going to have to keep him in check. POTENT OFFENSE: Bowling Green averaged 35.4 points and 472.5 yards with a balanced offense. Travis Greene ran for a single-season, school-record 1,555 yards. Matt Johnson threw for 3,195 yards with 23 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Johnson outplayed Heisman Trophy finalist Jordan Lynch in the MAC title game, throwing four of his career-high five touchdown passes in the first half. He was 21 of 27 for a career-high 393 yards, connected with five teammates for scores and didnt throw an interception against a team playing for a BCS bowl bid. CONSISTENTLY AVERAGE: The Panthers finished 6-7 in each of the last two years, capping each losing season with a lopsided defeat at the Compass Bowl. Mississippi routed Pitt 38-17 last season and SMU beat the Panthers 28-6 a year earlier. We want to finish strong and wanted the opportunity to play another game with this group, second-year Pitt coach Paul Chryst said. We like this group, and theres a big difference in our room between going 7-6 and 6-7.

Section CTHURSDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE J.M. HIRSCH Associated PressIt wasnt Paula Deens career implosion. Nor the rise and fall of the Cronut. It wasnt even the Sriracha apocalypse.This years most significant food moment was more seismic, an event 125 years in the making. For 2013 was the first time in a long time that the food world had something new to say about Thanksgiving. Turkey Day converged with Hanukkah, creating a holiday mashup that hasnt happened since 1888, and wont again for 79,000 years. Suddenly, foodies were aflutter with the possibilities of turkeyshaped menorahs and pumpkin latkes. Or maybe it only excited those of us in the culinary media trenches, the wretches who must reinvent the foods of both holidays year after year. Fair enough. Luckily, there were plenty of other food world distractions. Deen, for example. For a second year running, she earned the top spot in the catastrophic PR category. In 2012, she was flogged for announcing she had both diabetes and a lucrative endorsement deal for a drug to treat the condition shed until then hidden. This summer, she acknowledged having used racial slurs in the past. Her endorsement, book and TV deals melted away faster than butter in a piping hot skillet. Then a few months later, another foodie fessed up to bad behavior. Nigella Lawson said shed used cocaine and marijuana ... and nobody seemed to mind. Heat fiends ended the year angsting over the future of Sriracha, the trendy hot sauce with the rooster on the bottle. The trouble started when people living near the Irwindale, Calif.-based Huy Fong Foods complained that odors from its manufacturing plant were burning their eyes. A court ordered the company to halt production until the odors could be brought under control. Then last month even shipments of already bottled Sriracha were stopped after California health officials enforced stricter guidelines that require the company to age the sauces 35 days before shipping. But dont worry. Though the nation may be facing a Sriracha shortage, at least we now have enough serve-yourself frozen yogurt shops to nearly rival Starbucks population density. Please make it stop. I understand that trends tend to be cyclical, but lets rush this one back to the s, shall we? And while were at it, lets also rid ourselves of the most overused food term of 2013: celebrity chef. There are plenty of people in the food world who truly deserve that title. They tend to be smart enough to not use it. And PR people, take note any time I see somebody described as a celebrity chef, I assume they arent and hit delete. It was a year of culinary comebacks. Wonder bread, Twinkies and a host of other Hostess Brands goodies were relaunched by new owners after disappearing in 2012 when the company went out of business. One thing that wont be coming back? Artificial trans fats. The FDA announced in November it will require the food industry to phase out the ingredient that once was a staple of baked goods, microwave popcorn and fried foods. Better make sure you keep those new Twinkies away from school cafeterias. Federal officials this summer announced new rules to limit the calories, fat, sugar and sodium on snacks, drinks and a la carte items sold at schools during the day, an expansion of similar rules launched last year for meals. But no need to cut back just yet; the changes wont take effect until next summer. Meanwhile, how to trim the nearly $80 billion-a-year food stamp program was the biggest deal breaker in congressional budget talks on the five-year farm bill. The Republican-controlled House this summer passed a $4 billion annual cut, while the Democratic Senate passed a version cutting just $400 million a year. This month, they agreed to disagree until the end of January, when theyll need to take up the issue again. Americas obsession with cultish hard-to-get foods was over-the-top. The McRib? So last year. The musteat items of 2013 were all about exclusivity French chef Dominique Ansels Cronut, a croissant-doughnut hybrid, and Keizo Shimamotos ramen burger, a beef patty served between buns of ramen noodles.

C2THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFLAIRFORFOOD Associated PressA nutrition label on a can of soda is pictured Sept. 15, 2011, in Philadelphia. As people pay closer attention to what they eat, companies are learning that funny-sounding chemicals and other ingredients can be a bullseye for criticism from online petitions and food bloggers. While companies stand by the safety of such ingredients, some are nevertheless removing them to stave off bad publicity. The advent of a New Year is the perfect moment to make merry with sparkling wine. Legend has it that Marilyn Monroe once took a bath in a tub filled with 40 gallons of Champagne, this according to one biographer, George Barris. True or not, the worlds fascination with bubbly wine is enduring. A new job, the birth of a child, weddings, or any special event is cause for the choice of Champagne. A few suggestions for New Year Eve follow, but first, a few attention-grabbing facts: True Champagne comes from only for the region in France with the same name located about 90 miles east of Paris. The rest of the world does make wine that sparkles, but it is not the real McCoy. Heres a surprise: Champagne flutes, which for a long while replaced the round, flat stems cast off years ago, are now themselves pass. Connoisseurs now suggest a return to the peach-shaped vessel, but one holding at least 10 ounces of liquid to give the bubbles a better chance to show off. All Champagnes are blends of 30 or more separate still wines. The complex process by which Champagne is made requires a second fermentation (they all begin as still wines) during which natural carbon dioxide gas is trapped inside each bottle. This is how any decent sparkling wine gets its bubbles. The really cheap stuff is made by merely adding carbon dioxide. One of the axioms of Champagne (and other sparkling wines made in the traditional manner) has been: The smaller the bubbles, the finer the wine. French Champagne makers are known for producing different styles, from light to full-bodied. Examples of each are: Lanson (light), Perrier-Jouet and Taitenger (medium) and Louis Roederer and Bollinger (full). Three types of Champagne (read the label) are: Blanc de Blanc, made entirely from white chardonnay grapes; blanc de noir, the opposite, an ever-so-slightly pink-tinged golden Champagne finished wholly from red grapes; and Ros Champagne, which well get to in a moment. The rest of the golden-colored Champagnes are a blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. Ros Champagne is considered the ne plus ultra. They are harder to create. The best and historical method is to add some of the base wine to be in contact with pinot noir skins, until it picks up enough color to tint the wine pink. Another, more common, technique is to add a dose of pinot noir wine into a bottle before the second fermentation. Bev and I love pink Champagne; its so festive. A common mistake many good folks make is to drink Champagne with caviar. Trust me on this one: Salty fish eggs and sparkling wine are a mismatch. If you enjoy caviar, drink it with icecold Russian or Polish vodka. Brut on the bottle means it is drier in taste than extra dry. That is just the way it is. True Champagne is expensive, averaging $25 to $45 a bottle. There are any number of sparkling wines prepared both in France and the United States, as well as sundry other countries sure to satisfy the urge to celebrate the New Year of 2014. Most are dry in nature, but for those who prefer a sweeter wine, try Asti Spumonti, or a medium dry Prosecco, both from Italy. Spanish cava is fine choice for sparkling wine and runs about a third of true Champagne. Other suggestions, and check with you wine consultant, are sparkling Vouvray, Crment de Loire, or the dry German sparkler Sekt. California sparkling wines are all decenttasting choices, at under $20 for most. Some of our favorites are Gloria Ferrer, Roederer Estate, Domaine Chandon and Mumm Napa Valley, or from Washington State always a best buy is Chateau Ste. Michelle reliable and priced at about $10. Happy and healthy new year greetings from our family to yours. Ron and Bev.Ron Drinkhouse was a buyer and seller of wines in his native Connecticut.

But since this is a season of reflection and renewal, I thought this would be a good time to go back into the archives and re-run a holiday column from years past. The column is from 1991 wow, how life has changed since then! For those new to the column, it was written by Elizabeth Coblentz from 1991 to 2002. One of her daughters, Lovina Eicher, has written it since. Kevin WilliamsWell, Im searching my brain, trying to think what would logically be the next thing I could write about. The holidays are in store for us, especially now that December appears on the calendar. Snow permitting, sleigh rides are enjoyed this time of year. Families are busy making plans for their holiday gatherings. All kinds of baking and candy making takes place and lots of these goodies are passed out to family, friends, and neighbors and, also, to the ones in need. of presents increases the excitement of children and even adults at gatherings. The children enjoy meeting Santa with his treats, while shopping with the businesses with their music, traditional lights, and trimmings. Its a special time of year to always look forward to the holidays. Although we never know what God has in store for us, December always brings back sad memories when our family left on a trip for the weekend and by Sunday evening word came that my Grandpa had died. It was a sad Christmas for Grandma and the rest of the family of 14 married children and families. Also, I remember holiday gatherings which always seemed so enjoyable at Grandpas. It just never seemed the same at the gatherings after he was gone. But since my Dad is gone our family gathering has also ended at this time of year. We now have our family to look forward to at holiday time. Here is a holiday recipe:Peanutty squaresINGREDIENTS:1 cup peanut butter1 cup peanuts2 cups marshmallow crme 4 cups Cheerios1 stick margarine DIRECTIONS: Melt together peanut butter, peanuts, marshmallow crme and margarine. When blended together, add to Cheerios with one cup of brown sugar. Press into a buttered 9x13 pan, allow to cool, and cut into squares. Taking time to remember what was Associated PressNEW YORK Take another look at that food label. An ingredient or two may have vanished. As Americans pay closer attention to what they eat, food and beverage companies are learning that unfamiliar ingredients can invite criticism from online petitions and bloggers. The risk of damaging publicity has proven serious enough that some manufacturers have reformulated top-selling products to remove mysterious, unpronounceable components that could draw suspicion. Earlier this year, for example, PepsiCo Inc. said it would stop using brominated vegetable oil in Gatorade and find another way to evenly distribute color in the sports drink. Last year, Starbucks said it would stop using a red dye made of crushed bugs based on comments it received through a variety of means, including an online petition, and switch to a tomato-based extract. Kraft Foods plans to replace artificial dyes with colors derived from natural spices in select varieties of its macaroni and cheese, a nod to the feedback its hearing from parents. Ali Dibadj, a Bernstein analyst who covers the packaged food and beverage industry, says the changes reflect a shift from democratization to activism by consumers. It used to be that people would just decide not to buy the product. Now theyre actually agitating for change, Dibadj said. Theres a bullhorn which is the Internet so you can get a lot of people involved very quickly. Companies stand by the safety of their old recipes. Although they dont typically provide details on production decisions, their reasons for using certain ingredients can include cost and manufacturing efficiencies. Still, food and beverage makers can be sensitive about broadcasting any changes. Chick-fil-A, for instance, has been removing artificial dyes and high-fructose corn syrup from its dressings and sauces. The Atlanta-based chain is also testing a clean ingredient bun but has not alerted customers. The reason companies dont publicize it is that they dont want to bring attention to these ingredients. They want to slowly start to remove them until theyre all gone, said Vani Hari, who runs the site FoodBabe.com and has pressured companies to remove artificial dyes and other ingredients. There are no numbers tracking how many companies are reformulating products in response to consumer demand. But even if recipe changes arent in direct response to petitions or blogs, executives understand that ingredients can become a liability once they fall out of favor with the public. High-fructose corn syrup, for example, has gained a negative image in recent years and has been blamed for fueling bad eating habits. The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a health advocacy group, says the sweetener is no more harmful than ordinary sugar in large amounts. But Kroger Co. decided to remove it from store-brand cereals following surveys with consumers in 2011. The supermarket chain isnt alone. Over the past decade, the use of high-fructose corn syrup in packaged foods and drinks has fallen 18 percent to 6.1 million tons last year, according to market researcher Euromonitor International. The latest moves to swap out ingredients underscore the growing sway consumers have through sites such as Change.org, which lets people post petitions. In the past, a customer complaint about an ingredient may have been addressed with a boilerplate letter from corporate headquarters. But now people can go online to share their concerns with thousands of like-minded individuals. John Boeheim, of New Yorks Hudson Valley, says he avoids a number of ingredients, including the artificial sweetener aspartame and a red dye, in part because of what hes read on blogs and social media. Weve taught our kids to look at the labels, to look at the ingredients, Boeheim said. Companies are paying attention too. Chick-fil-A says it will continue to improve ingredients to keep up with changing tastes and even invited Hari to spend the day at its headquarters sharing her concerns. Not all companies are making changes, at least not right away. The Mississippi teenager who called for the removal of brominated vegetable oil in Gatorade, for instance, is now taking aim at Coca-Colas Powerade, which also contains the ingredient in select varieties. As of Tuesday, Sarah Kavanaghs petition had more than 57,000 supporters. In a statement, Coca-Cola noted that all its ingredients comply with regulations. But the company also said it is always looking for ways to evolve its formulas. Another petition that asks Mars Inc. to remove artificial colors from M&Ms had more than 141,000 signatures. In an emailed statement, the privately held company stressed the safety of its ingredients. Although it has not announced any changes, the company noted that it continues to explore the use of naturally sourced colors and that it is constantly evaluating its ingredients based on a variety of factors, including consumer preference. As food labels get closer look, ingredients vanish Earlier this year, for example, PepsiCo Inc. said it would stop using brominated vegetable oil in Gatorade and find another way to evenly distribute color in the sports drink. Last year, Starbucks said it would stop using a red dye made of crushed bugs based on comments it received and switch to a tomato-based extract. Kraft Foods plans to replace artificial dyes with colors derived from natural spices in select varieties of its macaroni and cheese, a nod to the feedback its hearing from parents.

Update, improve rate AARP slates Safe Driving Course schedule for January, February Special to the ChronicleThe Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) Nature Coast Chapter contributed their package wrapping skills this year to the Family Resource Center to help reduce the number of packages down from the 1,000 needed by Dec. 20. We provide for approximately 1,700 children during this time of the year. We could have at least 200 more children before the Christmas season is over, said Channing Heater, administrative assistant at the Family Resource Center. Caseworkers and people in the community make recommendations of needy children and assist in the delivery of the wrapped packages before Christmas. The Family Resource Center started out as the Foster Family Association in 1983, according to CEO Ginger West. The Family Resource Center collaborates with every major agency in Citrus County that works with families and children. Having a great time wrapping gifts, representing the FPRA Nature Coast Chapter, are Elizabeth Austin, Richard Fernley, Dorothy Pernu, Mathew Baillargeon and Katie Mehl. For more information about the Nature Coast Chapter or FPRA, go to www.fpra-naturecoast.org or contact chapter president Katie Mehl at 352-344-6501. FPRA assists Family Resource Center Knights play Santa Special to the ChronicleKnights of Columbus Grand Knight Dominic Bonanno, top, and Jim Louque delivered more than 300 toys to Ginger West at the Family Resource Center in Hernando on Dec. 11 for children who otherwise might have gone without a visit from Santa Claus at Christmas. The mountain of toys was a result of a campaign led by Louque that received toys from Knights, their ladies and bingo players. Typically, caseworkers from schools contact the Family Resource Center for toys upon noticing children facing a giftless Christmas. Demand usually continues right up through Christmas Eve, although the toy shop closes on Dec. 22. Caseworkers take the gift-wrapped toys to households that need them. In a room next to the mound of toys from the Knights that day, a half dozen volunteers were busy wrapping toys.

C4THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Albert Einstein said, Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted. At the bridge table, you hope that everything you need to count accurately can be. In todays deal, it is East who needs to count, aided and abetted by West. South is in four hearts. West leads his fourthhighest club. How should East plan the defense? South had a minimum two-heart response. He planned to rebid three hearts to invite game, but when North supported hearts, this increased the value of Souths hand, so he bid game. Why did West lead a club instead of a diamond? Because it was his stronger suit and because I peeked at the full deal and saw that a diamond lead would kill the defense! East should realize that almost certainly his side has to take either three clubs and one diamond or two clubs and two diamonds but which? First, East must find out whether South started with two clubs or three. East wins the first trick with his club king and cashes the club ace. Here, West follows with his two, showing that he began with five clubs. Now East must try for two diamond tricks how? If West has the diamond king, it does not matter; but in case South has the king and West the queen, East must shift to a low diamond. Now the only question is: Will South guess correctly? Note that if West had started with only four clubs, his second card would have been higher than the three. Then East would have cashed the diamond ace before leading a third club.

This is literally an epidemic everywhere. Anger and hatred are destroying families. My husband and I have three adult children who were the delight of our lives. We had a typical loving family, with vacations, birthday parties and special celebrations that included friends and extended family. We had anxious times during illnesses, surgeries and accidents, but we made it through. All three of our children have grown to be successful, well-liked and respected adults. Sadly, over the past 22 years, they all have chosen to shut us out of their lives. Weve had minor disagreements at times, but never any major battles that might justify their choices. None of them will tell us why they are angry. They refuse to have any contact or open dialog that might heal our relationship. I know youre probably thinking there must be something. If so, we dont know what it is. My husband is 81, and I am 78. We understand there is a real possibility that we will never hear from our children before we die. We do our best to focus on the great times we had and to hold onto the many precious memories of their growing-up years. Holidays are the hardest, but with Gods help, we make it through. We have forgiven our children and will always pray for them. We will always thank God for choosing us to be their parents. Joining the Letting Go Club Dear Joining: Your letter is heartbreaking. When children are brought up by loving parents, we dont know why some remain close and others do not. The same fire that melts butter will forge steel. If you have any family members who are in touch with your children, perhaps they could help you understand what is going on and even intercede on your behalf. In the meantime, you are wise to accept what you cannot change and compassionate to forgive those who have hurt you. Dear Annie: Im a little late sending out my Christmas cards, but I hope to have them all done before the holiday season is over. What is the proper etiquette when writing Christmas cards to families with children over 18 still living at home? Can I send one card to them all, or do I need to send the kids their own? Hurrying Before the New Year Dear Hurrying: It is perfectly OK to send one holiday card to the entire family if they are all living in the same house, although it would be nice to put all of their names on the envelope. Dear Annie: Speaking for Another Lost Veteran said her 55-year-old bipolar niece is hanging onto her stepfathers ashes instead of allowing him to be buried next to his late wife in a military cemetery. When we knew that my late husband was dying, he said he would like his ashes to be scattered on the ocean. I was heartbroken because I wanted to be buried with him. And being a Vietnam veteran, he deserved a military funeral with full honors. When he died, the funeral director placed some of his ashes in three tiny urns, one for each of his grown children and one for me. The remainder was divided in half. One half was buried at a national cemetery with full honors, and the other half was placed in a container made for scattering ashes at sea. Our family set it afloat on the ocean that had given him so much joy through the years. In this way, I believe I satisfied everyones wishes, most of all, his. Found a Loving Solution Dear Found: Thank you for a sympathetic compromise.

You missed those trends? You were probably busy eating Greek yogurt and kale salads. In fact, pretty much all things vegetable and vegan were hot (cue the smug look from all the hippies who knew this back in the s). This summers crop of food magazines was so smitten with vegetables, they seemed to forget a lot of people like to grill meat, too. In other media news, the Food Network turned 20 (Bam!), ABCs The Chew spit out its 500th episode, Gordon Ramsays Fox show Kitchen Nightmares went viral after featuring an Arizona couple having an epic meltdown, and popular recipe website Allrecipes.com spun off into a real world print edition with Allrecipes magazine. In the restaurant world, fastfood workers protested pay levels, photo apps continued to disrupt meals (and annoy restaurateurs), computer tablets increasingly displaced old-fashioned menus and order pads, and we almost lost Alice Waters iconic Berkeley, Calif., restaurant Chez Panisse to fire in March (it reopened this summer). But the food world did lose three icons. Chicago chef Charlie Trotter died at age 54 in November from a stroke. He was credited with reinvigorating fine dining in America and putting Chicago at the vanguard of the food world. Marcella Hazan, who taught generations of Americans how to create simple, fresh Italian food, died in September at 89. And Judy Rodgers, the award-winning chef behind San Franciscos Zuni Cafe, died this month at 57. Whats in store for 2014? Weve yet to crack the code for the perfect cookbook app. Will this be the year? Lets all cross our fingers that the gluten-free bubble finally bursts. The Olympics will have us (briefly) smitten with vodka and pirozhki. Well, maybe the vodka part of that affair wont be brief. And while veggies will still be hot, sustainable seafood could be the new kale. Associated PressLEFT: Acting Berkeley Fire Department Deputy Chief Avery Webb inspects damage at Chez Panisse restaurant March 8 in Berkeley, Calif. RIGHT: Alice Waters poses outside the new front entrance to her Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, Calif. After a fire in March shut the doors to the famous go urmet restaurant, the eatery reopened in June. TABLEContinued from Page C1 Associated PressNEW YORK A California wine collector and influential peddler of rare vintages was convicted Wednesday of fraud for manufacturing fake old wine in his kitchen. Rudy Kurniawan, whose family gained wealth operating a beer distributorship in Indonesia, was expressionless after being convicted of mail and wire fraud for selling more than $1.3 million worth of counterfeit bottles to other wealthy collectors. Sentencing was set for April 24, when Kurniawan faces up to 40 years in prison. After Kurniawan, 37, was led out of the courtroom by U.S. marshals, attorney Jerome Mooney said his client was disappointed. Mooney said the trial had revealed the dont ask, dont tell culture in the high-end vintage wine business over what was being sold. In closing arguments a day earlier, prosecutors said Kurniawan put on a magic show to fool aficionados into thinking he had access to the worlds rarest wines. They said he made millions of dollars from 2004 to 2012 by manufacturing fake vintage wine in his Arcadia, Calif., kitchen, even though he had been ordered to leave the country in 2003. But Mooney said the government had discovered the suburban Los Angeles home of a hoarder when they arrested the Indonesianborn defendant last year, mistaking the hundreds of corks and other winemaking paraphernalia stuffed in drawers and closets as evidence that the home had been converted into a fake wine factory. Prosecutors said money from the fraud funded a lavish lifestyle in suburban Los Angeles that included luxury cars, designer clothing and fine food and drinks. Mooney said all of Kurniawans assets have been seized or have had liens placed against them, including the Arcadia home where his 67-year-old mother resides after she obtained asylum. The trial featured testimony from billionaire yachtsman, entrepreneur and wine investor William Koch, who said he was conned and cheated by Kurniawan into paying $2.1 million for 219 fake bottles of wine. I was disappointed and I was angry, he testified. Michael Egan, a fine wine expert hired by Koch to determine how many of the 43,000 bottles of wine he owns are fake, testified during the trial for the government that evidence collected from Kurniawans property included 19,000 counterfeit wine bottle labels representing 27 of the worlds best wines. Outside court after the verdict, Egan said the investigation and trial has highlighted an area of the wine resale market thats now been cleaned up, thanks in part to increased awareness from winemakers who now defend their brands and defend French winemaking in general. Prosecutors said Kurniawan made some mistakes along the way that exposed his fraud. For one, they alleged that a bottle of Domaine Ponsot he attempted to sell at auction in 2008 was passed off as having been made in 1929, even though the winemaker didnt begin estate bottling until 1934. Others were billed as having been bottled at a specific vineyard between 1945 and 1971, even though Domaine Ponsot said it didnt start using that vineyard until 1982.

G12Thursday, December 26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME OURTIME Discovering the joy of retirementJanuary 20134SilverSneakers classes keep seniors in shape................Page G6Age-friendly phones help seniors stay in touchDear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good age-friendly home telephones for elderly seniors? My 82-year-old mother has a difficult time hearing over the phone and her vision and memory arent so great either. Shopping Son Dear Shopping, There are literally dozens of different types and styles of agefriendly phones on the market today to help seniors with a variety of challenges like hearing loss, low vision, memory problems and limited mobility.How to chooseTo help you select a good agefriendly phone for your mom, you need to take into account her specific needs and wants because there are lots of options to choose from. For example, for seniors with hearing loss there are amplified telephones, both corded and cordless, to provide various levels of amplification usually ranging from 25 decibels (dB) up to around 55 dB, with some offering tone adjustments for high-frequency hearing loss. Most amplified phones are also hearing-aid compatible and come with extraloud ringers and bright ring flashers to indicate incoming calls. Most amplified phones also come with big buttons and a lighted keypad that make them easier to see and easier to operate for seniors with hand tremors or dexterity problems. Some phones even offer talk back buttons that speak the number as you dial. If remembering is a problem, you may want you consider a photo phone for your mom that lets you insert pictures of family members or friends over preprogrammed buttons, so she can simply press the picture of the person she wants to call and theyre automatically dialed. Emergency alert phones are another option to consider, especially for elderly seniors who live alone. These phones come with a neck pendant or wristband (SOS button) that your mom would wear, so if she falls down and cant get up, she can press it and the phones preprogrammed emergency numbers will automatically be dialed. If mobility is an issue, there are speaker phones you can purchase that will let your mom activate the phone with her voice. And since telemarketing fraud is so common among the elderly, many age-friendly phones have built in caller IDs so she can identify whos calling before she picks up. Some phones even offer outgoing speech amplification for seniors with weak, difficult-to-hear speaking voices.Where to shopWhile there are many companies that make and sell age-friendly telephones, the leading suppliers in the industry are Clarity (clarity products.com), ClearSounds (clear sounds.com), Serene Innovations (sereneinnovations.com), Geemarc (geemarc.com) and VTech (vtechphones.com). To find these and other models, visit their respective websites, or try assistive hearing sites like harriscomm.com, teltex.com and soundbytes.com. Prices typically range from $30 up to around $300.Free phonesAnother option you should check into is state-funded specialized telecommunications equipment programs, which are available in 47 states. If your moms state has a program, you may be able to get her an amplified telephone for free. Captioned phonesIf your mom has severe hearing loss, another option you should know about is captioned telephones that have a built-in display window that would let your mom listen to the caller, as well as read written, word-for-word captions of everything the caller is saying. Options available include: CapTel (captel.com) sold through Weitbrecht Communications Inc. for $75, however many states have programs that offer them for free to residents in need; the popular new Clarity Ensemble that sells for $75 through clarityproducts.com; and the $75 CaptionCall at captioncall.com.

WE ARE WE ARE HERE HERE TO HELP TO HELP Dear Margaret: My husband and I have been married for 57 years and currently live alone. He is a retired Army Colonel. We are experiencing declining health and he has been diagnosed with dementia. I have been thinking about assisted living, but because of the economy, I am worried we will run out of money The Colonels Wife Dear Colonels Wife: In todays economy, everyone is worried about making their money last and having enough to take care of themselves. When looking at the cost of assisted living versus living in your own home, there are a lot of factors you should consider, plus with your husbands diagnosis of dementia, there are certain safety factors that you will need to think about too. Your home expenses, even if your home is paid for, add up, especially when you factor in your utilities, food, insurance and taxes on your home, upkeep and insurance for your automobile, lawn care, home repairs or hired help to assist you and your husband with your personal needs. When moving into assisted living, we provide you with safe, secure, worry free living by providing 24 hour a day/7 day a week, care, 3 meals a day with snacks, utilities, transportation, a full activities program, housekeeping and maintenance. As a veteran, you and your husband may qualify for the VA Aid and Attendance Pension that helps the veteran and his/her spouse with the cost of assisted living services. The pension will also help widows and widowers. Contact your local VA benefits office for more information on this pension.

Is prostate cancer screening right for you?To screen, or not to screen? When it comes to prostate cancer, this is the question men and health care professionals want to answer correctly. But the final decision must be an informed decision, because like most things, the answer is not always a simple yes or no. Cancer screening tests including the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to look for signs of prostate cancer can be a good idea. Prostate cancer screening can help identify cancer early on, when treatment is most effective. And a normal PSA test, combined with a digital rectal exam, can help reassure you that it's unlikely you have prostate cancer. There are a number of pros and cons to the PSA test. On the positive side, PSA screening may help you detect prostate cancer early, when it is easier to treat and more likely to be cured. On the other hand, PSA tests arent foolproof and can lead to false-positives and sometimes overtreatment of cancers that are slow growing and will never spread beyond the prostate gland. Additionally, a high PSA level does not always mean a man has prostate cancer. PSA levels may be high in men with benign prostate enlargement, prostatitis (an infection) and other common prostate problems. The PSA isnt the only screening tool for prostate cancer. A digital rectal examination (DRE) should always be done with a PSA test when screening for prostate cancer. A DRE is a handson exam in which a doctor feels the prostate for bumps or abnormalities. The thought of this is likely uncomfortable, but it is a quick, safe and easy test that minimizes the risk of missing prostate cancer or wrongly identifying a benign prostate abnormality as cancer. Knowing the risk factors for prostate cancer can help you decide if and when you want to begin prostate cancer screening. Older men, African-American men and men who have a family history or prostate cancer have a greater risk of developing prostate cancer. Most prostate cancer is found in men age 65 or older. To screen, or not to screen? In the end, the answer is up to you. For some men, a positive PSA test can be a lifesaver. Its generally a good idea to have a PSA and DRE if you are at increased risk of prostate cancer. But not all men need to be screened. Consider the pros and cons of screening, your age, general health and risk factors. Talk with health care professionals who have your best interest in mind.

Planning menus can be simpleNational Institute on AgingPlanning a days worth of meals using smart food choices might seem overwhelming at first. Here are some sample menus to show you how easy it can be. These menus provide 2,000 calories a day. You might need to eat fewer or more calories, depending on your activity level and whether you are a man or a woman. The U.S. Department of Agricultures ChooseMyPlate offers sample menus (PDF, 776K) for a week. Although it might look like the recommended amounts for a food group are not met or are exceeded in a single day, the average over a week meets recommendations. Making a shopping list will help you in two ways. It will remind you to look for the nutritious foods you should be eating and it will make it easier to stick to your food budget. Be sure to include the items you need for your menus and any low-calorie basics you need to restock in your kitchen. This sample shopping list from www.health .gov includes a variety of healthy foods for you to look for. You can make a blank copy of these pages to use when you shop, or use this list as a basis for making your own shopping list. Of course, you wont need everything listed here every time you shop, but this will help you remember what you need to buy. Sample menu 1Breakfast Breakfast burrito 1 flour tortilla (8-inch diameter) 1 scrambled egg 1/3 cup black beans 2 tablespoons salsa 1/2 large grapefruit 1 cup water, coffee, or tea Lunch Roast beef sandwich 1 small whole-grain hoagie bun 2 ounces lean roast beef 1 slice part-skim mozzarella cheese 2 slices tomato 1/4 cup mushrooms (cooked in 1 tsp. corn/canola oil) 1 teaspoon mustard Potato wedges 1 cup potato wedges (cooked in 1 tsp. canola oil) 1 tablespoon ketchup 1 cup fat-free milk Dinner Baked salmon on beet greens 4-ounce salmon filet 1 teaspoon olive oil 2 teaspoons lemon juice 1/3 cup cooked beet greens (cooked in 2 tsp. canola oil) Quinoa with almonds 1/2 cup quinoa 1/2 cup silvered almonds 1 cup fat-free milk Snack 1 cup cantaloupe ballsSample menu 2 Breakfast Whole-wheat French toast 2 slices whole-wheat bread 3 tablespoons fat-free milk 2/3 egg 2 teaspoons tub margarine 1 tablespoon pancake syrup 1/2 large grapefruit 1 cup fat-free milk Lunch 3-Bean Vegetarian Chili on Baked Potato 1/4 cup each cooked kidney beans, navy beans, and black beans 1/2 cup tomato sauce 1/4 cup chopped onion 2 tablespoons chopped jalapeno peppers 1 teaspoon corn/canola oil (to cook onion and peppers) 1/4 cup cheese sauce 1 large baked potato 1/2 cup cantaloupe 1 cup water, coffee or tea Dinner Hawaiian pizza See MENUS/ Page G5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, December 26, 2013 G9 OURTIME G4Thursday, December 26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME Im thinking I might be showing signs of aging. That might be a little hard to believe, but Im pretty sure its true. For starters, youve heard me mention several times before that I just dont pay attention like I used to. The other day I had to go for one of those pesky medical tests. You know, the one where you have to fast for a couple of days and drink a lot of yukky stuff that drains your insides completely. Need I say more? Anyway, when I arrived for the procedure, I was ushered into a small changing room where I was instructed to change into the gown. I tried to listen very intently so that I would get it all right. The instructions were to change into the gown and put my clothes into the locker. That was simple enough. I proceeded to follow instructions and then I noticed a basket of surgical hats lying on the bench. I was trying to follow the instructions to the letter and suddenly was faced with a dilemma. What are those hats doing there? There was no mention of hats. Should I put the hat on before leaving the room? Am I supposed to wear the hat at all? I decided I would be one step ahead and wear the hat. That seemed like a good idea; however, the hat did not fit my head so well. Now what? I decided to take the hat with me and explain to the nurse I would put my hat on after I was in bed. The nurse proceeded to explain what I had in my hand was not a hat. It was a basket of disposable socks in case people forgot to wear/bring their own. Socks! Honestly, they looked like hats! No wonder it didnt fit on my head. The nurse quietly returned the sock to the basket. I did notice she watched me very closely from that moment on. Thank you, Dr. Biks team for taking such good care of the crazy lady with the sock on her head! Seriously, I know I am getting older because Im beginning to repeat myself. A lot. At least my family says I repeat myself a lot. I think it isnt so much that I forget what I say, its that I forget who Ive said it to. You know what I mean? The number of people in our circle grows as we get older and there are so many people who need to know what we have to say and I just cant remember if I told everyone what they need to hear. You know they are hanging on my every word, right? So, my solution for repeating myself is just to give the excuse in the beginning of every conversation. I usually say something like, I cant remember if I told you this or not. Thats good, isnt it? Then the other party doesnt have to feel uncomfortable telling me that Ive repeated myself yet again or, in most cases, just listen to it again and then go tell their friends how much I repeat myself. In short, I repeat myself, but at least I remember what I said. Sometimes. Did I talk to you about this before? Another sign of aging for me is the fact that not one salesperson or hotel clerk ever asks anymore if Im entitled to the senior citizen discount. They just automatically take it off my bill. Maybe its because the senior citizen discount age has been lowered to 55. Maybe? Maybe not? Yes, Im sure thats it. We really arent getting older, we are just more seasoned. Seasoned is good! Happy new year to all and remember, no matter how old we get, laughter is still the best medicine. Mary Alice TillmanLETS TALK Growing seasoned, not older My life: In sickness and healthBy Doris ButtSpecial to the Chronicle My friend Donna told me she knew just the fellow for me. The next time we were at the Coon Hunters Lodge Saturday night dance, she introduced me to Ray. She was correct. The adventurous young teacher and the shy young farmer instantly enjoyed each others company. Opposites do attract. A year later, we married. Two wallflowers got together, as Ray tells it. We decided on a small wedding at Rays church, St. Johns Lutheran, in Napoleon on Dec. 6. I can still visualize us sitting around the kitchen table writing the invitations. We each wrote to those we wanted to invite. I put together a simple white pleated skirt and white blouse. My sister made my veil. Our sisters and brothers-inlaw stood up with us. I always tell I taught the day I got married, but Ray recently reminded me he had worked a full day, too. Although our wedding was modest, my love for flowers prompted an extravagance of six bouquets of white mums among four candelabras and four palms, which made the candlelight service impressive. O Perfect Love, a song in the hymnal, and The Lords Prayer were sung. I remember kneeling at the altar and wondering if The Lords Prayer was ever going to end. Actually, that is my clearest memory of the whole ceremony. The reception was in the church basement. My sister brought the cake her neighbor baked. Mom and a friend made ham salad sandwiches. I wondered if they were made of bologna or real ham. I hope it was ham. Somewhere, there had to have been some punch and potato chips, but I dont remember any. The crowd was small enough to allow Ray and me to visit with our guests who braved a very rainy winter evening. I would consider us rather mature 22-year-olds, but we were still so naive about what love meant that I hardly want to mention it at this stage. Now I realize how little we knew about ourselves, each other and about life. But we came to the marriage with the greatest of confidence in the future. That confidence has been fulfilled in a very happy marriage. Some very serious vows were made that evening. Wilt thou love her, comfort her, honor and keep her in sickness and health and forsaking all others, keep thee only unto her for as long as ye both shall live? For me, one vow has been tested four times with my hip surgeries. It is in sickness and health that most likely comes to meaning in our senior years. It is a vow that has bonded Ray and me more than any in our marriage. Those of you who have been caregivers or receivers of care understand. You have to experience it to know what it is all about. You get in circumstances that can be unimaginable. So many times you just have to hug, cry and especially laugh, sometimes all at once. Getting through it brings a special compassion for each other. Fifty-six years ago, Ray and I said our I dos so innocently. Now we must do for each other and we find we can. And our love grows deeper.

You might not be looking forward to this time of year, since a visit from the IRS is a lot more stressful than a visit from Santa, but your local library offers a selection of resources that can make your tax season a little more manageable. For those of you who are planning to do your own taxes with a trusty pen and paper, we will have some of those vital tax forms you will need. The libraries in Citrus County will be stocked with some of the more popular tax forms and booklets. These paper materials have already been ordered and will be available when the IRS delivers them, so it is wise to continue to check with your local library branch often. These forms and booklets tend to run out eventually, and while we at the library always attempt to order more, time doesnt always allow us to restock. It is a good idea to get your booklets and forms as soon as possible. Nearly all of the tax forms and booklets are available online at IRS.gov. If you know the exact form you are looking for, we can help you navigate IRS.gov to find and print the materials you need. We are also fortunate enough to have representatives from AARP Tax-Aide here from Jan. 30 to April 15 to provide tax help at various branches. Every branch will have different days during which the AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will be available: Tuesdays at Beverly Hills, Wednesdays at Homosassa and Inverness, Thursdays at Crystal River and Fridays at Beverly Hills. Schedule an appointment by calling 211 and then going online to www.citrusunitedway.org/freetax-prep to find and print the form you will need to bring with you to your appointment. The phone number to call is simply 211, and you can begin to schedule appointments as early as Jan. 2. It is wise to schedule an appointment as early as possible, as the free service tends to be in high demand every year. We also have some great text resources in our collection such as the Ernest and Young Tax Guide, along with an assortment of books by J.K. Lasser pertaining to taxes. Some of our most recent and valuable resources are considered reference and therefore cannot be checked out, but dont worry we have plenty of quiet spaces that are perfect for sitting down, cracking open a book and getting the job done. Our public computers are also a great place to get some work done if your computer has gone on the fritz or you need to print a document. Tax season can be a frustrating time of year, but with a little preparation things can go a lot more smoothly.

Planning menus can be simpleNational Institute on AgingPlanning a days worth of meals using smart food choices might seem overwhelming at first. Here are some sample menus to show you how easy it can be. These menus provide 2,000 calories a day. You might need to eat fewer or more calories, depending on your activity level and whether you are a man or a woman. The U.S. Department of Agricultures ChooseMyPlate offers sample menus (PDF, 776K) for a week. Although it might look like the recommended amounts for a food group are not met or are exceeded in a single day, the average over a week meets recommendations. Making a shopping list will help you in two ways. It will remind you to look for the nutritious foods you should be eating and it will make it easier to stick to your food budget. Be sure to include the items you need for your menus and any low-calorie basics you need to restock in your kitchen. This sample shopping list from www.health .gov includes a variety of healthy foods for you to look for. You can make a blank copy of these pages to use when you shop, or use this list as a basis for making your own shopping list. Of course, you wont need everything listed here every time you shop, but this will help you remember what you need to buy. Sample menu 1Breakfast Breakfast burrito 1 flour tortilla (8-inch diameter) 1 scrambled egg 1/3 cup black beans 2 tablespoons salsa 1/2 large grapefruit 1 cup water, coffee, or tea Lunch Roast beef sandwich 1 small whole-grain hoagie bun 2 ounces lean roast beef 1 slice part-skim mozzarella cheese 2 slices tomato 1/4 cup mushrooms (cooked in 1 tsp. corn/canola oil) 1 teaspoon mustard Potato wedges 1 cup potato wedges (cooked in 1 tsp. canola oil) 1 tablespoon ketchup 1 cup fat-free milk Dinner Baked salmon on beet greens 4-ounce salmon filet 1 teaspoon olive oil 2 teaspoons lemon juice 1/3 cup cooked beet greens (cooked in 2 tsp. canola oil) Quinoa with almonds 1/2 cup quinoa 1/2 cup silvered almonds 1 cup fat-free milk Snack 1 cup cantaloupe ballsSample menu 2 Breakfast Whole-wheat French toast 2 slices whole-wheat bread 3 tablespoons fat-free milk 2/3 egg 2 teaspoons tub margarine 1 tablespoon pancake syrup 1/2 large grapefruit 1 cup fat-free milk Lunch 3-Bean Vegetarian Chili on Baked Potato 1/4 cup each cooked kidney beans, navy beans, and black beans 1/2 cup tomato sauce 1/4 cup chopped onion 2 tablespoons chopped jalapeno peppers 1 teaspoon corn/canola oil (to cook onion and peppers) 1/4 cup cheese sauce 1 large baked potato 1/2 cup cantaloupe 1 cup water, coffee or tea Dinner Hawaiian pizza See MENUS/ Page G5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, December 26, 2013 G9 OURTIME G4Thursday, December 26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME Im thinking I might be showing signs of aging. That might be a little hard to believe, but Im pretty sure its true. For starters, youve heard me mention several times before that I just dont pay attention like I used to. The other day I had to go for one of those pesky medical tests. You know, the one where you have to fast for a couple of days and drink a lot of yukky stuff that drains your insides completely. Need I say more? Anyway, when I arrived for the procedure, I was ushered into a small changing room where I was instructed to change into the gown. I tried to listen very intently so that I would get it all right. The instructions were to change into the gown and put my clothes into the locker. That was simple enough. I proceeded to follow instructions and then I noticed a basket of surgical hats lying on the bench. I was trying to follow the instructions to the letter and suddenly was faced with a dilemma. What are those hats doing there? There was no mention of hats. Should I put the hat on before leaving the room? Am I supposed to wear the hat at all? I decided I would be one step ahead and wear the hat. That seemed like a good idea; however, the hat did not fit my head so well. Now what? I decided to take the hat with me and explain to the nurse I would put my hat on after I was in bed. The nurse proceeded to explain what I had in my hand was not a hat. It was a basket of disposable socks in case people forgot to wear/bring their own. Socks! Honestly, they looked like hats! No wonder it didnt fit on my head. The nurse quietly returned the sock to the basket. I did notice she watched me very closely from that moment on. Thank you, Dr. Biks team for taking such good care of the crazy lady with the sock on her head! Seriously, I know I am getting older because Im beginning to repeat myself. A lot. At least my family says I repeat myself a lot. I think it isnt so much that I forget what I say, its that I forget who Ive said it to. You know what I mean? The number of people in our circle grows as we get older and there are so many people who need to know what we have to say and I just cant remember if I told everyone what they need to hear. You know they are hanging on my every word, right? So, my solution for repeating myself is just to give the excuse in the beginning of every conversation. I usually say something like, I cant remember if I told you this or not. Thats good, isnt it? Then the other party doesnt have to feel uncomfortable telling me that Ive repeated myself yet again or, in most cases, just listen to it again and then go tell their friends how much I repeat myself. In short, I repeat myself, but at least I remember what I said. Sometimes. Did I talk to you about this before? Another sign of aging for me is the fact that not one salesperson or hotel clerk ever asks anymore if Im entitled to the senior citizen discount. They just automatically take it off my bill. Maybe its because the senior citizen discount age has been lowered to 55. Maybe? Maybe not? Yes, Im sure thats it. We really arent getting older, we are just more seasoned. Seasoned is good! Happy new year to all and remember, no matter how old we get, laughter is still the best medicine. Mary Alice TillmanLETS TALK Growing seasoned, not older My life: In sickness and healthBy Doris ButtSpecial to the Chronicle My friend Donna told me she knew just the fellow for me. The next time we were at the Coon Hunters Lodge Saturday night dance, she introduced me to Ray. She was correct. The adventurous young teacher and the shy young farmer instantly enjoyed each others company. Opposites do attract. A year later, we married. Two wallflowers got together, as Ray tells it. We decided on a small wedding at Rays church, St. Johns Lutheran, in Napoleon on Dec. 6. I can still visualize us sitting around the kitchen table writing the invitations. We each wrote to those we wanted to invite. I put together a simple white pleated skirt and white blouse. My sister made my veil. Our sisters and brothers-inlaw stood up with us. I always tell I taught the day I got married, but Ray recently reminded me he had worked a full day, too. Although our wedding was modest, my love for flowers prompted an extravagance of six bouquets of white mums among four candelabras and four palms, which made the candlelight service impressive. O Perfect Love, a song in the hymnal, and The Lords Prayer were sung. I remember kneeling at the altar and wondering if The Lords Prayer was ever going to end. Actually, that is my clearest memory of the whole ceremony. The reception was in the church basement. My sister brought the cake her neighbor baked. Mom and a friend made ham salad sandwiches. I wondered if they were made of bologna or real ham. I hope it was ham. Somewhere, there had to have been some punch and potato chips, but I dont remember any. The crowd was small enough to allow Ray and me to visit with our guests who braved a very rainy winter evening. I would consider us rather mature 22-year-olds, but we were still so naive about what love meant that I hardly want to mention it at this stage. Now I realize how little we knew about ourselves, each other and about life. But we came to the marriage with the greatest of confidence in the future. That confidence has been fulfilled in a very happy marriage. Some very serious vows were made that evening. Wilt thou love her, comfort her, honor and keep her in sickness and health and forsaking all others, keep thee only unto her for as long as ye both shall live? For me, one vow has been tested four times with my hip surgeries. It is in sickness and health that most likely comes to meaning in our senior years. It is a vow that has bonded Ray and me more than any in our marriage. Those of you who have been caregivers or receivers of care understand. You have to experience it to know what it is all about. You get in circumstances that can be unimaginable. So many times you just have to hug, cry and especially laugh, sometimes all at once. Getting through it brings a special compassion for each other. Fifty-six years ago, Ray and I said our I dos so innocently. Now we must do for each other and we find we can. And our love grows deeper.

Is prostate cancer screening right for you?To screen, or not to screen? When it comes to prostate cancer, this is the question men and health care professionals want to answer correctly. But the final decision must be an informed decision, because like most things, the answer is not always a simple yes or no. Cancer screening tests including the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to look for signs of prostate cancer can be a good idea. Prostate cancer screening can help identify cancer early on, when treatment is most effective. And a normal PSA test, combined with a digital rectal exam, can help reassure you that it's unlikely you have prostate cancer. There are a number of pros and cons to the PSA test. On the positive side, PSA screening may help you detect prostate cancer early, when it is easier to treat and more likely to be cured. On the other hand, PSA tests arent foolproof and can lead to false-positives and sometimes overtreatment of cancers that are slow growing and will never spread beyond the prostate gland. Additionally, a high PSA level does not always mean a man has prostate cancer. PSA levels may be high in men with benign prostate enlargement, prostatitis (an infection) and other common prostate problems. The PSA isnt the only screening tool for prostate cancer. A digital rectal examination (DRE) should always be done with a PSA test when screening for prostate cancer. A DRE is a handson exam in which a doctor feels the prostate for bumps or abnormalities. The thought of this is likely uncomfortable, but it is a quick, safe and easy test that minimizes the risk of missing prostate cancer or wrongly identifying a benign prostate abnormality as cancer. Knowing the risk factors for prostate cancer can help you decide if and when you want to begin prostate cancer screening. Older men, African-American men and men who have a family history or prostate cancer have a greater risk of developing prostate cancer. Most prostate cancer is found in men age 65 or older. To screen, or not to screen? In the end, the answer is up to you. For some men, a positive PSA test can be a lifesaver. Its generally a good idea to have a PSA and DRE if you are at increased risk of prostate cancer. But not all men need to be screened. Consider the pros and cons of screening, your age, general health and risk factors. Talk with health care professionals who have your best interest in mind.

WE ARE WE ARE HERE HERE TO HELP TO HELP Dear Margaret: My husband and I have been married for 57 years and currently live alone. He is a retired Army Colonel. We are experiencing declining health and he has been diagnosed with dementia. I have been thinking about assisted living, but because of the economy, I am worried we will run out of money The Colonels Wife Dear Colonels Wife: In todays economy, everyone is worried about making their money last and having enough to take care of themselves. When looking at the cost of assisted living versus living in your own home, there are a lot of factors you should consider, plus with your husbands diagnosis of dementia, there are certain safety factors that you will need to think about too. Your home expenses, even if your home is paid for, add up, especially when you factor in your utilities, food, insurance and taxes on your home, upkeep and insurance for your automobile, lawn care, home repairs or hired help to assist you and your husband with your personal needs. When moving into assisted living, we provide you with safe, secure, worry free living by providing 24 hour a day/7 day a week, care, 3 meals a day with snacks, utilities, transportation, a full activities program, housekeeping and maintenance. As a veteran, you and your husband may qualify for the VA Aid and Attendance Pension that helps the veteran and his/her spouse with the cost of assisted living services. The pension will also help widows and widowers. Contact your local VA benefits office for more information on this pension. I am sure that Assisted Living Services are much more affordable than you expect. Come and join us for a tour of Superior Residences of Lecanto to learn more.

G12Thursday, December 26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME OURTIME Discovering the joy of retirementJanuary 20134SilverSneakers classes keep seniors in shape................Page G6Age-friendly phones help seniors stay in touchDear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good age-friendly home telephones for elderly seniors? My 82-year-old mother has a difficult time hearing over the phone and her vision and memory arent so great either. Shopping Son Dear Shopping, There are literally dozens of different types and styles of agefriendly phones on the market today to help seniors with a variety of challenges like hearing loss, low vision, memory problems and limited mobility.How to chooseTo help you select a good agefriendly phone for your mom, you need to take into account her specific needs and wants because there are lots of options to choose from. For example, for seniors with hearing loss there are amplified telephones, both corded and cordless, to provide various levels of amplification usually ranging from 25 decibels (dB) up to around 55 dB, with some offering tone adjustments for high-frequency hearing loss. Most amplified phones are also hearing-aid compatible and come with extraloud ringers and bright ring flashers to indicate incoming calls. Most amplified phones also come with big buttons and a lighted keypad that make them easier to see and easier to operate for seniors with hand tremors or dexterity problems. Some phones even offer talk back buttons that speak the number as you dial. If remembering is a problem, you may want you consider a photo phone for your mom that lets you insert pictures of family members or friends over preprogrammed buttons, so she can simply press the picture of the person she wants to call and theyre automatically dialed. Emergency alert phones are another option to consider, especially for elderly seniors who live alone. These phones come with a neck pendant or wristband (SOS button) that your mom would wear, so if she falls down and cant get up, she can press it and the phones preprogrammed emergency numbers will automatically be dialed. If mobility is an issue, there are speaker phones you can purchase that will let your mom activate the phone with her voice. And since telemarketing fraud is so common among the elderly, many age-friendly phones have built in caller IDs so she can identify whos calling before she picks up. Some phones even offer outgoing speech amplification for seniors with weak, difficult-to-hear speaking voices.Where to shopWhile there are many companies that make and sell age-friendly telephones, the leading suppliers in the industry are Clarity (clarity products.com), ClearSounds (clear sounds.com), Serene Innovations (sereneinnovations.com), Geemarc (geemarc.com) and VTech (vtechphones.com). To find these and other models, visit their respective websites, or try assistive hearing sites like harriscomm.com, teltex.com and soundbytes.com. Prices typically range from $30 up to around $300.Free phonesAnother option you should check into is state-funded specialized telecommunications equipment programs, which are available in 47 states. If your moms state has a program, you may be able to get her an amplified telephone for free. Captioned phonesIf your mom has severe hearing loss, another option you should know about is captioned telephones that have a built-in display window that would let your mom listen to the caller, as well as read written, word-for-word captions of everything the caller is saying. Options available include: CapTel (captel.com) sold through Weitbrecht Communications Inc. for $75, however many states have programs that offer them for free to residents in need; the popular new Clarity Ensemble that sells for $75 through clarityproducts.com; and the $75 CaptionCall at captioncall.com.

With doom, gloom and controversy normally corralling headlines, 13-year old Jazzy gave readers a chance to smile and hope. The Inverness Middle School student was severely injured in an October 2012 motorcycle accident that killed her father. As she lay in a coma, doctors told her mother, Carrie Connolly, that she wouldnt survive or, at best, would have severe brain injury and never function normally again. 2013 proved those doctors wrong. Not only is Jazzy alive, she participated in a dance competition and returned to school. Her teachers say she continues to progress and by doing so, Jazzy continues to convince those who doubted her ability to improve. Shes a miracle, Connolly said. This is her first Christmas home since the accident. Last year at this time, she had just woken from a coma and was in a Jacksonville rehabilitation center, re-learning basic speech and motor skills. She came home for good March 1 and soon was reunited with Sergeant, her 6-year-old Chihuahua who had gone missing. Terry Funderburk, an animal control officer with the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, tracked down the missing Sergeant to a neighbor, who gladly gave up the pooch after learning of Jazmines circumstances. Others would also be around to help Jazzy. In June, Nature Coast EMS bought Jazmine an outdoor swimming pool for aquatic therapy, which will help her walk again. EMS personnel assembled the pool while MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileJazmine Jazzy Lee continues to recover from a severe motorcycle accident that seriously injured her and claimed the life of h er father in October of 2012.

Flood insurance premium rates were increased by the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 in an effort to stabilize the National Flood Insurance Programs $24 billion debt incurred through the catastrophic destruction of Hurricane Katrina and superstorm Sandy. The reform act put the cost of flood insurance back onto property owners in high-risk areas through annual increments. Some measures started Oct. 1. Key provisions of the legislation required the NFIP to raise rates to reflect true flood risk, make the program more financially stable and change how Flood Insurance Rate Map updates impact policyholders.

Commissioner Joe Meek, appointed by the board to act is a liaison to the Citrus County Hospital Board and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation, said his role kicks in only in the creation of a trust to oversee net proceeds of the proposed long-term lease. Meek said the commission majority purposely decided stay out of the fray between the hospital boards, which are negotiating both an end to contentious lawsuits and narrowing the wording for a letter of intent with Hospital Corporation of America. Ive had meetings with both general counsels about our desire to be involved in the long-term trust, forming the trust, populating the board and those types of things, he said.

Ex-anchorman enjoys comparison to Ron BurgundyJACKSONVILLE A former 1970s anchorman is enjoying a little more time in the limelight, thanks to the return of his fictional counterpart Ron Burgundy. Comedian Will Ferrell has said the inspiration for his character in the Anchorman movies was Mort Crim, who moved to northeast Florida in 1998 after retiring as a TV news anchor in Detroit. Crim told The Florida Times-Union that the film is a satire and he doesnt take offense to Ferrells performance. He said he always took his work seriously but tried not to take himself too seriously. I think the first movie was a parody of anchor people, Crim said. The second is a parody of the whole 24-hour news cycle. The key moment is when Burgundy said, Why do we have to give them what they need? Lets give them what they want. Crim and his wife were invited to the Dec. 15 premiere of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues at the Beacon Theatre in New York, where he got to meet Ferrell for the first time. I walked up to him, put out my hand and said, Will, its such an honor for you to meet me, Crim said. He said he appreciated the good nature I had displayed in the interviews Id done. Crims smooth baritone voice caught Ferrells attention in a documentary on Jessica Savitch, Crims co-anchor at a Philadelphia TV station in the mid-1970s. Crim said he wasnt always nice to Savitch in the early days of their partnership, but he came to admire her and delivered the eulogy at her memorial service in 1983. Now 78, Crim has written seven books and is starting to write his eighth, which is about working in television news in the 1970s and 1980s.Dragnet results in 48 arrestsSANFORD A dragnet conducted by the Seminole County Sheriffs Office has resulted in 48 arrests, including a woman charged with stealing $1,700 worth of bras from a shopping mall. The sheriffs office in suburban Orlando said Tuesday that the goal of the dragnet was to stop retail theft, remove drunk drivers from roads and prevent burglaries. Charges filed against the suspects include driving under the influence, theft and drug possession. As part of the dragnet, plainclothes deputies worked undercover inside several stores. Besides the bra-theft suspect, deputies arrested three suspects accused of stealing Christmas gifts and cash from a home.Teen accused of killing motherGULF BREEZE Florida Panhandle authorities said a teenager is charged with murder after allegedly beating and stabbing his mother to death. According to the Santa Rosa County Sheriffs Office, the Gulf Breeze teen and his mother had been arguing Tuesday night when the 17-year-old attacked her with kitchen knives and a baseball bat. The woman died at the scene. The sheriffs office said the teen was found hours later at a nearby home, where he surrendered.Man fatally shot standing in yardDELTONA, Fla. Authorities said a central Florida man may have been killed by a stray bullet from a neighbors shooting range. The Volusia County Sheriffs Office said the Deltona man was in his back yard Wednesday morning when he was shot in the chest. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. His name was not released. The sheriffs office told The Daytona Beach News-Journal that a neighbor had built a shooting range and it was possible that a stray bullet from the range struck the victim.Body recovered off Florida KeysSUMMERLAND KEY The body of a man who lived on a boat offshore in the Florida Keys has been recovered. The Monroe County Sheriffs Office reported that 68-year-old Charles Salyers was found dead Tuesday off Summerland Key. He had been reported missing by a friend a day earlier. Authorities said Salyers lived on a boat moored in Niles Channel. He reportedly used a dinghy with a small motor on it to travel to and from his boat.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3THURSDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Man faces arson charges CHRISVANORMER Staff writerHOMOSASSA An argument about which roommate had to move out may have led to the intentional setting of a fire early Sunday that destroyed a garage and the car inside it, according to a Citrus County Sheriffs Office arrest report. Before 7 a.m. Sunday, Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire and Rescue Service and deputies responded to a call to 6862 S. Greengate Point to find a 20foot by 30-foot freestanding garage containing a car both fully involved in flames that resulted in 100 percent loss to both, according to an incident worksheet report. Crews extinguished the fire. According to the report, deputies gathered information on scene and questioned a suspect, Edward Laurence Kenneally III, 25, who lived at that address and was attempting to put out the fire with a garden hose when officers arrived. The owner of the property, Gary Taylor, who called the Fire and Rescue Service, said he and another witness, Josh Jones, observed Kenneally attempting to extinguish the fire. Taylor said the garage structure was an unenclosed homemade carport and the car belonged to another roommate, Maurice Ayres, who was not present. According to information gathered by deputies, Kenneally returned to the residence at about 1:30 a.m. from a Homosassa tavern, and was argumentative about having to move out because he did not get along with Ayres, who had been away from the property for several days. At about 6:30 a.m., Kenneally was said to have gone outside to cool off. Kenneally, who was reported to have been read Miranda warnings about his right to remain silent, was reported to have told deputies that he took matches from his pocket, opened the unlocked car door, lit a match and threw it inside the car with another book of matches. When he saw the flames, Kenneally told deputies he grabbed the garden hose and tried to extinguish the fire. Kenneally also was reported by deputies to have said that he was agitated that Ayres would get to stay at the residence although he was being forced to leave. Deputies reported Kenneally said he was sorry and apologized and that he was being an idiot. When the Florida State Fire Marshal examined the scene, he ruled out the possibility of an accidental fire because the vehicle did not have a battery. Ayres, contacted by phone, said the car had been in running condition, although it had not been used in years. Ayres stated he wished to pursue charges. Taylor waived prosecution and signed a waiver concerning his garage. Kenneally was taken to the Citrus County Detention Facility and advised that he was placed under arrest for arson. His bond was set at $3,000. A search revealed two unlit matches in Kenneallys pocket, which were turned in as evidence. Edward Kennealy IIIbond set at $3,000. VA adopts county-made product PATFAHERTY Staff writerA Homosassa company is making a national impact with products to improve the daily lives of people with physical or neuromuscular disabilities. Since 1989, Accessibility Services Inc. has been providing assistive technology and adaptive equipment for disabled individuals, hospitals, businesses, schools and universities throughout Florida, and in recent years, at a national level. The family-owned company started in Tampa, but has been in Citrus County since 2011. It is now in a growth mode and has a contract on a new building. Combining software, hardware and biomedical engineering, it designs, builds and provides environmental control units (ECUs) sometimes called electronic aids for daily living. The end product enablesusers with physical or neuromuscular disabilities to gain control of their environment. It also provides automatic door openers for handicapped access for both residential and commercial use. Owner Maggie Thompson said the door openers are used by universities and department stores such as Macys and the University of Miami. Their ECUs provide increased independence in a home, hospital or rehabilitation facility, allowing users tocontrol and operate everyday items easily and effectively. Patients can handle nurse calls, television, bed adjustments and the telephone. They can read e-books, play computer games and with Wi-Fi can access email, Skype and social media. The heart of the unit is a 12-inch tablet computer that mounts to a movable arm above the patients bed that may also hold the television. The various devices are connected by infrared technology. The units are being installed at Veterans Affairs facilities for spinal cord injuries, Thompson said. We have a software program that allows the user to control, either by touch, voice, switch or sip and puff. The head tracker and eye camera are other options enabling patients to control the unit by head or eye movement. We are always trying to update and do the best we can to make our product work better and last longer, she said. Our philosophy is that we work from the patient backwards. Installation involves working with nurse managers, biomedical engineers, prosthetics experts, therapists, care givers and site managers. Maggies husband Fred Thompson started the company to fill a need for wheelchair clients who required additional environmental controls. In 2010 he was approached by the VA in Memphis, which created the need for computerized CPU. Out largest client is the VA, and weve been dealing with VA Tampa for over 20 years, Maggie Thompson said. As a result of the companys work, the Memphis VA won an innovation award, which led to Accessibility Services winning a three-year national contract. Thompson said it will entail putting in 973 units in 22 VA facilities across the country. And looking ahead the company believes its CPU will expand into the residential market as well. The company has 11 employees, including four new hires, as its ramps up to meet demand. To reach that stage, Thompson said they used the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the University of North Florida SBDC was very instrumental in helping us when we were working on the contract, she said. They just wanted us to be successful; I cant say enough about them.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicle online.com.

State and federal fishery experts are set to meet early next month in Key Largo to consider streamlining the regulations for fishing in South Florida. An update on Goliath grouper populations is expected at the meeting. A ban on harvesting Goliath grouper has been in place since 1990, but fishermen say the fishs population has rebounded. The executive director of the federal South Atlantic Fishery Management Council told TheMiami Herald that theres a lot of interest in reopening the Goliath grouper fishery. However, many biologists worry that allowing even limited harvests of the slow-growing fish could reverse the benefits of conservation efforts.Teen shot by police after high-speed chasePENSACOLA Police in Floridas Panhandle say officers fatally shot a teenager who led them on a highspeed chase. Police told the Pensacola News Journal that officers spotted 17-yearold William Goodman of Gulf Breeze driving recklessly and pursued him. Officers caught up to Goodman early Tuesday at an intersection, where the teen allegedly tried ramming his Corvette into their cars. Police said Officer Chad Willhite fired into Goodmans car after another officers leg was run over in an attempt to detain the teen. Goodman died at a hospital. A police spokeswoman said the officer with the injured leg was treated at a hospital. Willhite is on paid administrative leave pending an investigation. Goodman was charged in the death of a pedestrian in March. He was due in court next month.Coast Guard calls off search for six CubansMIAMI Coast Guard officials have abandoned a search for six Cuban migrants illegally traveling by boat between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. According to a Coast Guard statement Wednesday, a family member in the U.S. alerted authorities Saturday that the migrants boat was overdue. The relative told authorities that the boat was carrying three men and three women when it left Juan Dolio Beach in the Dominican Republic on Dec. 17. The Coast Guard called off its search for the boat and its passengers Tuesday evening after searching roughly 22,000 square miles south of the Dominican Republic and in the Mona Passage.Jailed fathers send messages to kidsJACKSONVILLE About a dozen inmates at one of Jacksonvilles jails sent recorded messages to their children as a plea not to follow in their footsteps.

Todays Highlight in History: On Dec. 26, 1776, the British suffered a major defeat in the Battle of Trenton during the Revolutionary War. On this date: In 1799, former President George Washington was eulogized by Col. Henry Lee as first in war, first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen. In 1908, Jack Johnson became the first African-American boxer to win the world heavyweight championship as he defeated Canadian Tommy Burns in Sydney, Australia.

Las Vegas basketball player and businessman Jackie Robinson announced the project this week. Its tentatively called the All Net Arena and Resort, and would be built on the site of a former water park near the renovated SLS Las Vegas hotelcasino and the Fontainebleau tower. Robinson said the project is privately funded. He says construction could begin next spring and be completed in 2016.NJ tribe sues makers of film Out of the FurnaceNEWARK, N.J. Members of the Ramapough Native American tribe have filed a $50 million lawsuit against the makers of a recent Hollywood movie they said depicts their people in a negative light. The federal suit was filed Monday in New Jersey against the writers and producers of Out of the Furnace. The suit claims the film makes false representations about the people who live in the Ramapo Mountains along the New York-New Jersey border about 25 miles west of New York City. The movie stars Christian Bale as a man trying to find his missing brother, who has gotten involved with a bare-knuckle fighting ring in the mountains of New Jersey. The movies villain, played by Woody Harrelson, has the last name DeGroat, which is common among the Ramapough. Tribal members identify as descendants of the Lenape or Lunaape Nation, with some Dutch and other European ancestry in their heritage. Most of the 17 plaintiffs in the suit have the DeGroat last name. Harrelsons character is the leader of a gang of inbreds, according to the suit, who are depicted as lawless, drug-addicted, poor and violent, and live in the mountains of New Jersey. The film also uses the term Jackson Whites, a historically derogatory term for the Ramapough. The plaintiffs seek punitive and compensatory damages and allege defamation, mental anguish and emotional distress.Israeli actors sit out show at settlement theaterJERUSALEM A trio of Israeli stage actors is refusing to perform in an acclaimed play before a theater in a West Bank Jewish settlement, part of a burgeoning domestic movement against the governments settlement policies. The protest mirrors a global movement against the settlements that has put Israels government in an increasingly difficult situation as the current round of peace talks with the Palestinians continues. The international community, including the U.S., has long considered Israeli construction of homes for Jews in the West Bank, captured territory claimed by the Palestinians, as an obstacle to peace. In a joint statement, the Cameri and Beit Lessin theaters said that three cast members in their production of Best Friends had asked to be excused from performing at the cultural center in Ariel, a settlement built deep inside the West Bank. It said they were granted exemptions and will be replaced by alternates, allowing the show to go on.

Associated PressAmid partisan conflict in Congress, dozens of lawmakers from both parties including staunch liberals and conservatives have united behind a bill that supporters say addresses a heart-rending issue beyond politics: the millions of foreign children languishing in orphanages or otherwise at risk because they have no immediate family. The bill would encourage more adoptions of foreign orphans, which have declined steadily in recent years, and reflects impatience with current policies overseen by the State Department. Every child needs and deserves to grow up in a family, said the bills chief advocate, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La. While our foreign policy has done much to keep children alive and healthy, it has not prioritized this basic human right. Titled the Children in Families First Act, the measure has been introduced in slightly different forms in both the Senate and House. Its co-sponsors range from Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., a hero of the Democratic left, to Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., a favorite of tea party conservatives. Its not a slam dunk, but it is very possible, Landrieu said of the bills chances. We need voices from all parts of the political spectrum to make a change that many of us think is extremely important. As of mid-December, the twin measures had 32 co-sponsors in the House and 17 in the Senate. Landrieu, mother of two adopted children, hopes to keep building support for the bill with the goal of clearing committees in both chambers by spring. However, some House Republicans are skeptical about creating more bureaucracy, and there is sentiment in the Obama administration that some key provisions of the bill are not needed. I think weve been pretty successful recently, said Susan Jacobs, the State Departments special adviser on childrens issues. We are proud of the work that we do to protect everyone involved in the adoption process the birth families, the adopting families and of course the children. Landrieu thinks differently, contending the government has been remiss in failing to establish an office that focuses on international child welfare. The bill would create a new bureau in the State Department assigned to work with non-governmental organizations and foreign countries to minimize the number of children without families through family preservation and reunification, kinship care, and domestic and international adoption. Under the legislation, the processing of international adoption cases would be assigned to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, while the U.S. Agency for International Development would become home to a center dedicated to implementing a 2012 plan to assist children in adversity. Theres no firm global count of children in orphanages, but they number in the millions. In Russia which has banned adoptions by Americans there are more than 650,000 children not in parental custody. In Kyrgyzstan where foreign adoptions were disrupted for years due to corruption and political problems orphanages are often ill-equipped, with limited specialized care for severely disabled children. Much of the impetus for Landrieus bill stems from shifting views about the Hague Convention on Inter-Country Adoption. That treaty establishes ethical standards for international adoptions, which it says are an acceptable option after efforts have been made to have a child adopted in his or her home country. The U.S. entered into the agreement in 2008 with strong support from Landrieu and other adoption advocates who hoped it would curtail fraud and corruption, and then lead to a boom in legitimate adoptions. Instead, the decrease in foreign adoption by Americans which started in 2005 has continued. There were 8,668 such adoptions in 2012, down from 22,991 in 2004. When I helped to pass this treaty, it was everyones hope that the number would go up doubled, tripled, quadrupled, Landrieu said. Instead its down by 60 percent. Thats the best evidence I have that what State Department has in place isnt working. There are multiple reasons for the decline including increases in domestic adoptions in China and South Korea, and suspensions imposed on several countries due to concerns about fraud and trafficking. However, many supporters of Landrieus bill believe the Hague convention has been applied too punitively. Several prominent supporters wrote to Secretary of State John Kerry on Dec. 18 asking that he investigate the matter. The letter cites Cambodia as an example. The U.S. and other Western countries have banned adoptions from there since 2001 out of concern that the adoption business was rife with bribery and child-trafficking. Cambodia, which imposed its own ban in 2009, now says it has made needed reforms and is ready to resume international adoptions, but the State Department says the U.S. ban will remain in place. Since 2001, the letter said, tens of thousands of children in Cambodia have had no chance at a permanent family. Many grow up or even die in institutional care, it said, while others end up on the streets or trafficked into the sex trade. Chuck Johnson, CEO of the National Council for Adoption and one of the letters signatories, cited Vietnam and Nepal as other countries where adoptions were suspended because of corruption and trafficking, and which now feel ready to resume them.

Joining again with Dance Central owner Chandra Haimbaugh and fellow dancers, Jazmine participated in a dance recital at Curtis Peterson Auditorium that featured Jazzy leaving her wheelchair and standing up for the first time publicly. She continues her quest to walk regularly. She hates that wheelchair, her mother said. During rehabilitation, Inverness Middle School teachers visited Jazmine weekly for tutoring. Although the idea a year ago of Jazzy returning to school in August seemed remote, neither daughter nor mom thought it impossible. We didnt quit pushing her, Connolly said. The more you push, the more she achieves. She was a determined little girl her whole life. I knew it was in her. So in October, about a year to the date of her fathers fatal accident, Jazzy returned to IMS as a fulltime student. Shes still the Jazmine we all know, teacher Robin Martone said at the time. Connolly said the next big goal for Jazmine, who turns 14 Jan. 1, is getting rid of the wheelchair permanently. She wants to be walking, Connolly said, and living a normal teenage life.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com.

In September, a Chronicleeditorial stated the Biggert-Waters reform act carried unintended economic consequences. The reform act changed the original intent of the NFIP that was created in 1968 to offer flood insurance at a subsidized rate as an alternative to disaster assistance. The reform act affected many county residents. At the beginning of August, 7,996 properties were in the NFIP: 5,770 in unincorporated areas, 1,109 in Crystal River and 117 in Inverness. Since 1978, flood insurance covered county losses of about $45 million in unincorporated areas, $19.6 million in Crystal River and $107,362 in Inverness. Florida, overall, had 40 percent of all flood policies nationwide. In effect, businesses with subsidized premiums face 25 percent premium rate increases each year until reaching the full risk rate without subsidy. Owners of properties purchased after July 6, 2012, under subsidized rates or policies that have lapsed will face full-risk rating at renewal. Primary residences can keep subsidized rates with some annual increases until the property is sold, adding another sale obstacle in a sluggish real estate market. In addition, these reform act provisions were predicted to price property owners out of their homes, trigger a new round of foreclosures, reduce property values and cause tax revenue losses. Residents who wondered how they would be affected were urged in October to study the new preliminary insurance rate map available at the countys building division. The new map identified about 800 to 900 properties as no longer within flood-prone areas, but designated more than 2,000 properties as at risk. Property owners with federally backed mortgages potentially would have to buy flood insurance. However, as a preliminary map, it was at the appeals stage. Flood insurance rates would not increase for newly identified at-risk properties until the map was adopted, which is expected to take effect in September 2014. U.S. Rep. Rich Nugent of Floridas District 11 introduced a bill in September (H.R. 3218: Flood Insurance Fairness Act of 2013) to delay the rate hikes for a long enough time to address the unforeseen consequences. In December, when federal lawmakers went home for the holidays, legislative efforts to delay the effect of the reform act by four years had not yet succeeded. Some lawmakers expressed hope that legislation could be fasttracked in January after the recess. Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com. that. What we havent been involved in is the transaction itself. Meek has been openly critical of the CCHB, particularly chairwoman Debbie Ressler, and thought the county commission should have more input into the transaction process. But when county commissioners considered their role in October, they limited it to post-transaction the creation and implementation of a community wide trust to oversee an estimated $90 million in net revenue from the HCA lease. That means Meek and county officials will watch from the sidelines as members of the hospital boards debate lawsuits and the HCA letter of intent. Meek said he preferred closer county involvement in the issue. Ive been very vocal that the commission should be more involved as a body, he said. The majority of the commission said they dont want to get involved in that process.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com.

Cops issue lottery tickets to speedersMELBOURNE Police in a central Florida city have been issuing scratch-off lottery tickets instead of speeding tickets to Christmas Day travelers. By early Wednesday afternoon, Melbourne Police officers had handed out 30 lottery tickets along with warnings to drivers caught speeding or making other traffic violations. Sgt. Jamie Rocque told Florida Today that officers bought the lottery tickets with their own money to spread a bit of holiday cheer while ensuring public safety. Rocque said the officers have been getting a lot of surprised looks.Leaders betting lots on upcoming SunRail launchORLANDO Central Florida will learn a lot about its transportation with the upcoming launch of the SunRail commuter train. The train begins taking its first passengers in May for the initial 32-mile phase of the project after years of debate about its viability in an area where residents have depended on their cars to travel between cities. Gov. Rick Scott passed on federal money for a highspeed train from Tampa to Orlando, but approved the $1.2 billion SunRail in 2011 after being convinced of its jobs creation benefits and potential to alleviate traffic on oft-congested Interstate 4. But now federal money for the second phase slated for 2016 is in peril because of potential budget cuts. Still officials remain optimistic that SunRail can be a game changer for the area.Surfing Santas catch some waves on Christmas EveCOCOA BEACH More than 210 surfers dressed as Santa Claus, elves and snowmen were spotted surfing the Christmas Eve waves off central Floridas Atlantic coast. Florida Today reported that when Cocoa Beach Mayor Dave Netterstrom took in the view from the sand Tuesday, he declared the fourth-annual gathering the largest surfing Santa event on the planet. Organizer George Trosset said he may move the holiday event to downtown Cocoa Beach next year to accommodate growing crowds. He started the tradition in 2009 with a few family members after seeing a television commercial featuring people surfing in Santa Claus attire. More friends joined them the following year, and in 2012 nearly 160 surfers participated. Trosset said the event has gone from being a little family party to being a community event.A6THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION/STATE For Information and costs,call 726-8323 Burial Shipping CremationFuneral HomeWith Crematory000EHVX 000GJI4 New Years Eve Ball New Years Eve Ball Tues.

Obituaries Death ELWEWHERE From wire reports Capitols dome set for renovation Associated PressWASHINGTON A world-famous symbol of democracy is going under cover, as workers start a two-year, $60 million renovation of the U.S. Capitol dome. Curved rows of scaffolds, like Saturns rings, will encircle it next spring, enabling contractors to strip multiple layers of paint and repair more than 1,000 cracks and broken pieces. The dome will remain illuminated at night and partly visible through the scaffolding and paint-capturing cloths. But the Washington icon and portions of the Rotundas painted ceiling that lies below will be significantly obscured for many months. The project is beginning just as the nearby Washington Monument sheds scaffolding that was used to repair damage from a 2011 earthquake. Half-completed when Abraham Lincoln stood beneath it to summon the better angels of our nature in 1861, the Capitol dome has since towered over Washington, which limits building heights to 130 feet. Time, however, has let water seep through hundreds of cracks. The water attacks cast iron, which continues to rust and rust and rust, said Stephen T. Ayers, Architect of the Capitol. This first major renovation in more than 50 years should add decades of structural integrity to the dome, which Ayers calls perhaps the most recognizable symbol across the globe. The $60 million undertaking will heal inner wounds, he said, without changing the way the dome looks from the ground. Much of the work will be done at night and on weekends. It wont be as flashy as the 1993 helicopter removal and return of the 19foot Statue of Freedom from the domes top. The Capitols crowning piece is actually two domes, one nested under the other like Russian dolls, and separated by a web of cast iron braces hidden from view. From the ground it looks like a massive structure that would be too heavy for the building to support if it were indeed made of the solid stone it appears to be. Instead it is cast iron painted to look like masonry. The lighter material and open space between the inner and outer domes create a physically sustainable structure. But its by no means puny. The domes iron and masonry weigh 14.1 million pounds, said Kevin Hildebrand of the Capitol architects office. He led reporters up narrow, spiraling stairs that reach the Rotundas top, and then give access to the in-between world of girders separating the two domes. Ultimately the steps lead outdoors, to a panoramic walkway beneath the 12-columned lantern, or tholos, topped by the Statue of Freedom. After a 1990 rainstorm left puddles on the Rotundas stone floor, workers found that bird nests had clogged gutters atop the Capitol, helping water penetrate outer walls and streak interior surfaces. Then they found bigger problems. Hundreds of cracks and pinholes in the cast iron exterior added to the seepage. Pans now capture the water. Congress finally agreed to spend $60 million for a better, more lasting solution. It is the symbol of our country, Hildebrand said. It is an icon that has to be preserved. The 150-year-old cast iron is low-quality by todays standards, he said. Its an archaic material, Hildebrand said. A dome today probably would be built with glass and steel, he said. But Capitol workers must deal with relatively brittle iron that doesnt respond well to welding. First they must remove, capture and safely dispose several layers of lead-based paint. When they reach bare iron, they must quickly prime and paint it section by section, Hildebrand said, because it will flash rust in eight hours. To mend cracks, workers will drill and tap damaged areas, and then insert steel pins. Metal stitching will complete the process. Before repairing water damage inside the Rotunda, workers will hang a giant doughnut-shaped drop cloth just below the painted ceiling. Rotunda visitors whose necks can stand the crane will still see The Apotheosis of Washington through the doughnut hole. The 4,664 square-foot painting, 180 feet above the Rotunda floor, depicts George Washington becoming god-like, aided by figures from classical mythology. If these repairs are not made, the artwork in the Rotunda, including the Apotheosis of Washington and the Frieze of American History, are at great risk of damage due to water leaks, says the Architect of the Capitols Web site. There is only one Capitol Dome, it says, and the office is committed to preserving it for generations to come. The architects office will update the renovations progress at www.aoc.gov/dome.

OPINION Page A8THURSDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2013 Hooray for blocking bookletWe owe thanks to our Citrus County School Board for resisting (in 2011) the persistent attempts to distribute a pocketsize U.S. Constitution to our school children that was published with a commentary and advertisement. The U.S. Constitution is the law of this land and deserves respect, and not to be used as an excuse to promote ideological political agendas. Recently those same pocket Constitution pamphlets showed up again, but this time a Florida Supreme Court Justice asked that the distribution of these booklets be stopped. The material was published by a conservative group that opposes the separation of church and state and that asserts (incorrectly) that the Constitution is based on Christian scripture. A version of the pocket Constitution includes an advertisement for W. Cleon Skousens works. Mr. Skousen, a Mormon, was a faith-based political theorist who founded the Freeman Institute in 1971, which later became the National Center for Constitutional Studies, which published the 80,000 copies targeting Florida school children. Our school board rightly refused to distribute the pamphlets because they promoted politics and religion, which is forbidden by school district policy for distribution to students. Leave it to our teachers to provide history and civic classes in school, and parents to provide religion (or not) to their children at home.Augie Nero Inverness Well, God bless Willie Nelson. The country legend has canceled a coming performance at SeaWorld Orlando because of a CNN documentary called Blackfish, a profoundly disturbing account of the theme parks exploitation of captive killer whales. If you havent yet seen Blackfish, download it today. The film has been shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination, with good reason. Last week, Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart also scratched a SeaWorld show amid the outcry. The rock group has roots in Seattle, which isnt far from the site of brutal roundups of baby killer whales during the late 1960s and early s. The early minutes of Blackfish present footage of one such expedition, and its heartwrenching to observe the misery of the adult whales as the young ones are netted and loaded on ships. (Those that died were slit open, loaded with weights and sunk to conceal the evidence.) One of those captured whales is still performing as Lolita at the Miami Seaquarium. Another that was snatched 30 years ago from the waters off Iceland is in the Shamu extravaganza at SeaWorld Orlando. Its name is Tilikum, the subject of Blackfish. At six tons, Tili is said to be the largest bull orca in captivity. Its also one of the most volatile and emotionally damaged, involved in three human deaths. The first occurred in 1991 at a cut-rate attraction in British Columbia. A young student worker was killed after she slipped into a tank holding Tilikum and two other orcas. The facility closed permanently after the tragedy, but Tilikum was purchased by SeaWorld and put on display in Orlando. In 1990, a man slipped past employees and climbed into Tilikums tank at night. The next morning the man was found dead, mutilated and draped naked across the whales back. Cause of death was ruled to be drowning or hypothermia. Then, in February 2010, Tilikum fatally mauled a veteran trainer, Dawn Brancheau as horrified tourists videotaped the sequence. SeaWorld said the accident was Brancheaus fault, implying that she somehow agitated the whale with her ponytail. The accusation infuriated other trainers, some of whom speak out in the documentary. After a hearing, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration ruled that SeaWorld subjected its trainers to a hazardous environment, and ordered barriers erected to separate the whales from the employees. A federal judge agreed. The company has appealed. Orcas are complex, highly intelligent mammals that in the wild would be traveling vast distances in close-knit family pods. Captive specimens spend their days in glorified guppy ponds performing stunts designed purely to amuse paying customers. In a toothless response to Blackfish, Michael Scarpuzzi of San Diego SeaWorld defended the companys educational presentation of orcas, and noted the thousands of uneventful interactions between trainers and whales during exercise, play and enrichment. Before Tilikum attacked Brancheau, the whale had been directed to perform the standard though not-so-enriching task of circling the pool while flapping one pectoral fin to give the appearance of waving. You wont see that clownish gesture from the orcas in Puget Sound, but the captive ones do it because they receive handfuls of dead fish as a payoff. Tilikum evidently missed a whistle cue, the fish snack was withheld and the rest is tragedy. Theres no denying that places like SeaWorld and the Seaquarium have educated millions of people about the beauty of orcas. Nor does the documentary leave any doubt that the trainers and vets who work directly with the whales care passionately for them. It doesnt change the fact that they exist in a state of extreme and stressful confinement. Imagine spending your whole life in a backyard swimming pool. Think you might get depressed every now and then? Bored out of your skull? Pissed off? Significantly, there have been no documented fatal attacks on a person by a wild orca. In captivity orcas are responsible for several deaths and many injuries. Despite a history of lethal violence, Tilikum remains a star at SeaWorld. Thats because hes a very valuable asset his sperm, especially. The capture of orcas was banned by the United States in 1972, so theme parks rely on captive breeding for their babies. Tilikum is a major stud, having sired more than 20 offspring for the company. Even with its trainers barred from swimming with the whales, SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. managed to take in record profits of $120 million last quarter. The company now waits for the outrage over Blackfish to subside, as it eventually did after the Free Willy films in the 1990s. Meanwhile its working hard in court to overturn the OSHA decision and return to the old bareback-riding days. Said its lawyers: Contact with killer whales is essential to the product offered by SeaWorld.... The product being live, performing orca meat. After watching Blackfish, youll wonder if thats really what you want your kids to see on their next vacation.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

As the two hospital boards controlling Citrus Memorial try to agree on a letter of intent to send Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) we wish they would lower the tone of their rhetoric. It is important for HCA to hear what board members and the community hope to keep in place following the lease agreement, but the words should not be so sharp they cut themselves out of a deal completely. Board members should have a large wish list to include in the letter of intent, as long as they understand HCA may not grant all of their wishes. The two boards long ago lost any bargaining power they might have had. Their bickering and long legal battle has sapped the hospital of money, vitality and reputation. The HCA offer is the best chance our community has to restore Citrus Memorial to a semblance of its once proud stature. It would be a shame if arrogance and defiance were to somehow ruin this, too. When crafting the letter of intent, board members should keep as close to the language of the original request for proposal as possible to set the proper tone for future negotiations. A private business cannot be expected to tie in a 2013-14 business plan to a plan they may have in 2020. This will be a for-profit venture for them. Give it your best effort, but realize negotiations require compromise. THE ISSUE:Officials want HCA to keep hospital in Citrus.OUR OPINION:Tone down rhetoric.

Im a retired man with 26 years of service, 10 active and reserve and I receive about $1,100 a month What Id like to point out is the pay for the average low-grade military today. They get a housing allowance between $500 and $1,000 a month tax free, $400 food allowance, plus base pay and now theyre giving them Christmas trees free. I dont think they need it anywhere near as much as a Walmart worker would, because they probably get onefifth the pay that the military get. And also, the military receives free health care and a whole bunch of other fringe benefits tax free. So I dont think its necessary that the public has to feel sorry for the military pay and give them Christmas trees. Its just not necessary.Nice partyTo Liz and Deloris and their husbands: Thank you for (the) party at Franks Family Restaurant on Tuesday, Dec. 17. You made our Christmas special. We love you.

Public will love new health lawI have been reading in the newspaper for some time untruths, omissions and fabrications concerning the Affordable Care Act, or the ACA otherwise known as Obamacare. Even with the roll-out problems, 1.2 million people have signed up for health insurance on the Internet marketplace during the first two months. Some of the GOP scare tactics have been debunked no ones grandparents have died at the hands of a death panel, and Congress is not exempt, which was seen with the much publicized video of Boehner signing up on the computer. As more and more people sign up and see the insurance policies, more of the scare tactics will be shown to be what they are: lies. They will discover that the ACA isnt a government takeover of health care when they see that there are actual insurance companies with actual insurance policies from Blue Cross, or United Health Care or other well-known names. The furor over how our president lied about being able to keep your health insurance or your doctor is nothing but smoke and mirrors. If your insurance policy didnt include the changes like pre-existing condition going away, or lifetime cap going away or your children can stay on your policy until 26 then the insurance company had to cancel that policy and upgrade it. The new insurance will be better than your old policy and you will be able to go to your doctor. The newest GOP fabrication is about maternity coverage, and if youre a man why should you pay for it? Well, Im a woman, and my policy includes prostate exams and surgery and medications such as Viagra and Cialis! What will they come up with next? The biggest whopper is that the ACA is socialism, the worst name the GOP could come up with to make the ACA look really bad. Have you ever heard of the Heritage Foundation? It happens to be a conservative research think tank not exactly what you would call a socialistic organization. Well, you can thank them for the ACA, its their baby. The GOP presidential nominee actually put this health care plan into effect in Massachusetts, and it is working quite well there. As more and more Americans sign up and their policies go into effect, the more the lies will be shown as what they are: just scare tactics. Only time will tell. Cheryl Seronick HomosassaSelling jail bad ideaSelling the jail to Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) who by the way is doing a good job running the jail is not a good idea. Every so often, the contract to operate comes up for bid and in that contract is the cost to house county inmates. What people do not know is that CCA houses other types of inmates from federal agencies and others that pay a higher rate to CCA like INS, for one. If the jail is sold, there will be no contract negotiations and CCA can fill up the jail with higher-paying agency inmates, thus charging the county even higher rates to house county inmates. There will be no completion and the county will be forced to pay these higher rates or build another jail. Hernando County at one time did not renew their contract with CCA to operate their jail for various reasons. I am aware the county is trying to raise capital but this is a short term fix that will have a long term negative impact. Justin Krumholtz Inverness Thanks to Midway Animal HospitalOn Sunday, Dec. 8, from 10 to 3, the Midway Animal Hospital, Crystal River, had an open house to allow visitors to meet the staff and tour their facility. What they also did is have an animal adopt-a-thon on their property. There were a number of animals present and shown from the animal shelter that were up for adoption, which were adopted. There was also a fundraising benefit to help the American Cancer Society, a bake sale, foods and donations jar. They did well. My word of thanks to Midway for allowing their premises to be used for the animal adopt-a-thon and also for the American Cancer Society to raise funds on their premises.Support medical marijuanaIm 65 years old and I looked in the paper this morning, Tuesday, Dec. 17, in letters to the editor and there was a Medical Marijuana section that a man had written his name is Haydon Fouke about the advantages of medical marijuana. And I 100 percent agree with him that it needs to be legalized. Forget the recreational; its going to happen anyway Ive got chronic pain that will never go away and Im being treated by many doctors, such as he has. Hes also at 75, according to the letter. I think this particular drug needs to be legalized in Florida and, you know, followed through by a medical doctor. So I definitely agree and I think it should be legalized. And he addressed it to Attornney General Pam Bondi and she needs to open her eyes and understand the benefits and do more research on what medical marijuana can do for the elderly that have medical problems.Port Citrus a boondoggleA recent visit to Port Canaveral, the second busiest in Florida, made me realize how out of touch our county commission is in regard to developing Port Citrus. Port Canaveral has a controlling depth of 41 feet and can accommodate vessels with up to a 36 draft. The Cross Florida Barge Canal has controlling depth of 12 feet with about half that where the canal enters the land, which would mean frequent dredging. While its true there are shallow draft barges, most barges and commercial ships could not handle the 12-foot depth. The most striking thing about Port Canaveral is that it is ugly. The waterways are crowded with cruise ships and commercial shipping vessels. There are derricks, cranes and large oil storage facilities adjacent to neighborhoods. So even if Port Citrus was feasible, which it is not because of the shallow depth and lack of infrastructure, why would anyone want to risk building it on the Nature Coast? Now we are paying attorneys fees to fight citizens who dont want Port Citrus. Good money thrown after bad.Unwise to charge for old TVsAlthough its not clear from the fee schedule that the landfill printed on Oct. 1, theyre now charging to accept old television sets.

NATION& WORLD Page A10THURSDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Thousands left without power Some forced to spend Christmas in a shelter Associated PressLITCHFIELD, Maine Utility crews from Maine to Michigan and into Canada worked Wednesday to restore power to the more than half a million homes in the U.S. and Canada that were left in the dark by last weekends ice storm and people slowly trickled out of shelters to spend Christmas Day at their finallywarm homes. But not everyone was so lucky, including Ashley Walter, who was forced to spend Christmas at a shelter set up in a school in Litchfield, Maine, with her husband, Jacob, and their month-old daughter, Leah. The family lost power Saturday, got it back temporarily then lost it again Sunday and have been without since. Ashley, 27, and Leah stay warm at the shelter while Jacob makes frequent trips home to check on their cats and water pipes. Its definitely kind of strange but were hanging in there, she said Wednesday of the challenge of being forced out of their home at Christmas. We did our Christmas together last night. I packed little stockings and gave them to my husband, sisters and my daughter. The frigid temperatures that cloaked a region from the Great Lakes to New England meant that ice remained on power lines and limbs. Officials worried that wind gusts of more than 20 mph could bring down more branches and that 2 to 6 inches of snow in places on Thursday would hamper line crews trying to get to remote spots. The ice storm last weekend was one of the worst to hit during a Christmas week and repair crews were working around the clock to restore service. States that werent hit were sending crews to help. So far, authorities blame the storm for 27 deaths; 17 in the U.S. and 10 in Canada. Five people in Canada died from carbon monoxide poisoning from emergency generators powering their homes, while two people in Michigan, a man in Maine and a man in Vermont also died from the poisonous fumes. About 156,000 homes were still without power Wednesday evening in Michigan, down from more than 500,000 at the storms peak. In Canada, about 160,000 customers were without power Wednesday evening. There were 72,000 customers without power in Toronto, down from 300,000 at the height of the outages, and Mayor Rob Ford said some may not have power restored until the weekend. Associated PressChris Devine, center, hauls a sled of gifts Wednesday with his daughter Jordan, 11, left, and stepson Derek Gervais, 20, right, to their home on Maplehurst Lane in Belgrade, Maine. The Devine's lost power on Monday and have hauled their supplies in on sled ever since. Santas sleigh delayed after snags at UPS, FedExNEW YORK Santas sleigh didnt make it in time for Christmas for some this year due to shipping problems at UPS and FedEx. The delays were blamed on poor weather earlier this week in parts of the country as well as overloaded systems. The holiday shopping period this year was shorter than usual, more buying was done online and Americans tendency to wait until the last possible second to shop probably didnt help either. Neither company said how many packages were delayed but noted it was a small share of overall holiday shipments. While the bulk of consumers holiday spending remains at physical stores, shopping online is increasingly popular and outstripping spending growth in stores at the mall. The Associated Press spoke to people in Alabama, California, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia who didnt receive presents in time for Christmas.From wire reports Popes Christmas wish: hope for a better world Associated PressVATICAN CITY Pope Francis offered Christmas wishes Wednesday for a better world, praying for protection for Christians under attack, battered women and trafficked children, peace in the Middle East and Africa, and dignity for refugees fleeing misery and conflict around the globe. Francis delivered the traditional Urbi et Orbi (Latin for to the city and to the world) speech from the central balcony of St. Peters Basilica to more than 70,000 cheering tourists, pilgrims and Romans in the square below. In his first Christmas message since being elected pontiff in March, he asked for all to share in the song of Christmas angels, for every man or woman ... who hopes for a better world, who cares for others, humbly. Among places ravaged by conflict, Francis singled out Syria, which saw its third Christmas during civil war; South Sudan; the Central African Republic; Nigeria; and Iraq. In Iraq on Wednesday, militants targeted Christians in two attacks, including a bomb that exploded near a church during Christmas Mass in Baghdad. The separate bombings killed dozens of people. The Vatican has been trying to raise concern in the world for persecution and attacks on Christians in parts of the Middle East and Africa. Lord of life, protect all who are persecuted in your name, Francis said. Adding an off-the-cuff remark, Francis said he was also inviting non-believers to join their desire for peace with everyone else. The pope also prayed that God bless the land where you chose to come into the world and grant a favorable outcome to the peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians. Francis then explained his concept of peace. True peace is not a balancing of opposing forces. Its not a lovely facade which conceals conflicts and divisions, the pope said. Peace calls for daily commitment, Francis said, reading the pages of his speech as they were ruffled by a chilly wind. Egyptian govt names Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group Associated PressCAIRO Egypts military-backed interim government declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization Wednesday, intensifying its campaign of arrests and prosecutions targeting its members and tightening the noose on the groups network of charities and businesses. The unprecedented executive decision likely ends any chance of reconciliation between the government and the 85-yearold Brotherhood, still Egypts most organized political group. It marks a stunning reversal of fortunes for the long-outlawed organization that saw member Mohammed Morsi reach Egypts highest office in the countrys first democratic election, only to be ousted in a popularly backed military coup in July. And it takes a step that not even autocrat Hosni Mubarak took in his nearly 30-year rule. Hossam Eissa, deputy prime minister and minister of higher education, read the governments declaration, saying the decision was in response to Tuesdays deadly bombing in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura which killed 16 people and wounded more than 100. It was the deadliest militant bombing since Morsis ouster and showed growing reach of the countrys Islamic insurgency, previously concentrated in the northern Sinai. Although Eissa and the government offered no proof of the Brotherhoods involvement, the accusation instilled in the public mind the image of the group as being behind the surge in violent attacks. The Brotherhood has denied being responsible for the Mansoura attack. Earlier Wednesday, an al-Qaida-inspired group called Ansar Beit al-Maqdis, or the Champions of Jerusalem, said it was behind the suicide bombing to avenge the shedding of innocent Muslim blood at the hands of Egypts apostate regime a reference to the security forces crackdown on Islamists following the coup. Brotherhood members dismissed the government label Wednesday, promising their near-daily protests against Morsis ouster would continue. The protests are in the streets despite a law restricting them and killings and prison sentences. All this has not changed the will of the people, said Ibrahim Elsayed, member of the Brotherhoods political group, the Freedom and Justice Party. Associated PressPope Francis delivers his Christmas message Wednesday from the central balcony of St. Peters Basilica at the Vatican. Associated PressAn Egyptian man mourns Wednesday during the funeral for victims killed from an explosion at a police headquarters, in the Nile Delta city of Mansoura, 70 miles north of Cairo, Egypt. World BRIEFS Bombings kill 37 in IraqBAGHDAD Militants in Iraq targeted Christians in three separate Christmas Day bombings in Baghdad, killing at least 37 people, officials said Wednesday. In one attack, a car bomb went off near a church in the capitals southern Dora neighborhood, killing at least 26 people and wounding 38, a police officer said. Earlier, two bombs ripped through a nearby outdoor market simultaneously in the Christian section of Athorien, killing 11 people and wounding 21, the officer said. The Iraq-based leader of the Chaldean Catholic Church, Louis Sako, said the parked car bomb exploded after Christmas Mass and that none of the worshippers were hurt. Sako said he didnt believe the church was the target.Russia drops charges against Greenpeace crewST. PETERSBURG, Russia Russian investigators have dropped charges against all but one of the 30 crew of a Greenpeace ship, who were accused of hooliganism following a protest outside a Russian oil rig in the Arctic, the group said Wednesday. Cristian dAlessandro of Italy failed to get his criminal case closed due to the lack of an interpreter and will have to visit the St. Petersburg branch of Russias Investigative Committee again on Thursday, said Violetta Ryabko, a Greenpeace spokeswoman. The 30 crew members aboard a Greenpeace ship were detained in September and held in custody for two months before they were released on bail in November. They had originally been charged with piracy.Iran lawmakers introduce uranium-enrichment billTEHRAN, Iran Some 100 Iranian lawmakers introduced a bill in parliament that would force the government to increase uranium enrichment to 60 percent if new sanctions are imposed on the Islamic Republic, state television reported Wednesday. The broadcaster said the bill would be put on parliaments agenda for a debate, but didnt say when it would discussed. The bill has to be approved by the 290-seat house and then be ratified by a constitutional watchdog in order to become law. The bill is likely a response to a legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate last week that would authorize new economic sanctions on Iran if it breaches the interim nuclear deal reached in Geneva last month or fails to strike a final agreement. From wire reports Three children die in home fireHOUMA, La. A mobile home fire in Louisiana killed three children and injured seven others early on Christmas Day, fire officials said. Two brothers, ages 12 and 11, and their 13-year-old sister died at the Whispering Oaks Trailer Park in Houma, said District Chief Lance LaMarca of the state Fire Marshals office. Another sibling, the childrens parents and four other children were taken to a Baton Rouge burn unit, LaMarca said. The trailer was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, Houma Fire Inspector Mike Millet said. The childrens father rescued one child after smoke came under his bedroom door, but was unable to get the other three because the fire spread so quickly, LaMarca said. The dead childrens father was the most severely burned, LaMarca said, followed by their mother. He said all the survivors are expected to recover. The mother and another child escaped through a window, while relatives sleeping in another bedroom at the opposite end of the mobile home got out through a back door. From wire reports Nation BRIEF

Roper has agreed to leave Duke to become the offensive coordinator for the Gators, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday night on condition of anonymity because the hiring has not been announced. Roper spent several hours with Florida coach Will Muschamp in Gainesville on Monday. He is expected to remain with the Blue Devils through the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31. ESPN was the first to report the decision. A Florida spokesman declined comment when reached by The Associated Press. Roper replaces Brent Pease, who was fired the day after Florida (4-8) completed its first losing season since 1979. Floridas offense ranked 112th nationally the third straight year it placed 100th or worse. Muschamp also fired offensive line coach Tim Davis. Muschamps next offensive coordinator had been considered the most important hire in his tenure, a choice that surely will impact whether the head coach sticks around beyond 2014. If Florida doesnt show significant improvement in Muschamps fourth year he is 22-16 through three seasons athletic director Jeremy Foley certainly will clean house. Muschamp had been expected to interview several potential candidates, a couple even after the bowl season. But he wasted little time offering Roper the job, although many believe Southern Californias Clay Helton was Floridas top choice. Helton decided last week to stay at USC under new coach Steve Sarkisian. Roper, meanwhile, followed coach David Cutcliffe to Duke in 2008 from Tennessee and helped rebuild the Blue Devils from one of the nations worst power-conference programs to the champions of the Atlantic Coast Conferences Coastal Division. Roper was a finalist this year for the Broyles Award, given to the nations top assistant coach. The offensive coordinator 2013 AP FEMALE ATHLETE OF THE YEARSimply Serena Williams wins award for third time Associated PressSerena Williams likes to make one thing clear: She is never satisfied, no matter how many matches and tournaments she wins. Driven as ever, Williams won plenty this year. She went 78-4 with 11 titles, including at the French Open and U.S. Open, raising her Grand Slam championship total to 17. She compiled a 34-match winning streak. She earned more than $12 million in prize money, a record for womens tennis. In February, she became the oldest No. 1 in WTA rankings history and never left that perch. Thanks to all of that, Williams was honored Wednesday as The Associated Press 2013 Female Athlete of the Year. Its the third AP award for Williams, following 2002 and 2009. Only two women have been chosen more often as AP Athlete of the Year since the annual awards were first handed out in 1931. Whenever I lose, I get more determined, and it gives me something more to work toward, Williams told the AP in an interview shortly before the start of the U.S. Open. I dont get complacent, and I realize I need to work harder and I need to do better and I want to do better or I wouldnt keep playing this game. The vote by news organizations was about as lopsided as many of Williams matches this season. She received 55 of 96 votes, while Brittney Griner, a twotime AP Player of the Year in college basketball and the No. 1 pick in Aprils WNBA draft, finished second with 14. Swimmer Missy Franklin was next with 10. The Male Athlete of the Year recipient will be announced today. Williams, who grew up in Compton, Calif., and turned 32 in September, produced the finest womens tennis season in years. According to the WTA:her .951 winning percentage was the best since Steffi Grafs .977 in 1989;her 11 titles were the most since Martina Hingis 12 in 1997;her winning streak was the longest since her sister, Venus, had a 35-match run in 2000. She just continues to be an inspiration to American tennis, said Gordon Smith, the executive director of the U.S. Tennis Association, which runs the U.S. Open. Her year this year? Unforgettable. By adding a fifth career U.S. Open championship, and a second French Open title, Williams also moved within one Grand Slam trophy of the 18 apiece won by Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. The record is 24 by Margaret Court. Pretty heady company. Evert is one of the only two women with more AP awards than Williams. Evert won four from 1974-80, while Babe Didrikson collected a record six one for track in 1932, and five for golf from 1945-54. Serena already has provided significant contributions to taking our sport to the next level. ... She is chasing records and no doubt will break many records before shes finished, WTA Chairman Stacey Allaster said. That obviously just brings a lot more attention to our sport. Two particular moments in 2013 stuck out to Allaster. One came at Qatar in February, when Williams cried after assuring herself of returning to No. 1 for the first time since 2010, the year the American needed two operations on her right foot and got blood clots in her lungs. You could see the joy, the tears of joy. It meant so much to her, from everything she had been through, to be able to be back at the top of the sport, a sport that she does truly love, Allaster said. The second moment came during Wimbledon, when Williams joined other women who have been ranked No. 1 at a celebration of the WTAs 40th anniversary. It was an opportunity to see her in a leadership position. ... She did a remarkable job at speaking on behalf of all those great athletes and speaking to future players, Allaster said. Theres a little girl, perhaps out there in Compton, who is dreaming of playing on the WTA, and Serena said, Were waiting for you, and we cant wait to meet you. Associated PressSerena Williams holds up the championship trophy Sept. 8, 2013, after defeating Victoria Azarenka during the womens singles final of the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York. Williams is The Associated Press 2013 Female Athlete of the Year, easily winning a vote by news organizations.

Same for LeBron James. Playing without its biggest star, Los Angeles stayed right with the Miami Heat for most of the day before slipping to a 101-95 loss against the defending NBA champions on Wednesday. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade had 23 points apiece, and James added 19 points in the Heats sixth straight win. Bosh grabbed 11 rebounds and Ray Allen made four 3-pointers for 12 points, helping Miami improve to 5-0 against the Lakers on the holiday. I knew we would get a good game out of them, and I think the NBA wanted a good game, James said, noting the blowout results of the first two games on the leagues holiday schedule. Bryant was relegated to the sideline with his fractured left knee, leaving him unable to extend his NBA record for Christmas Day appearances to 16. Its not as special when Kobes not out there, said James, who shared a post-game hug with Bryant. Streaky reserve Nick Young scored 20 points for the Lakers, who were tied four times in the fourth quarter. Jodie Meeks added 17 points, Xavier Henry had 14 and Pau Gasol added 13 points and 13 rebounds. Miami shot 51 percent from the field while improving to 7-0 against the Western Conference this season. It was its 19th straight win overall against West opponents. Bosh scored 13 of his 23 points in the first half, when Miami trailed 27-21 after the first quarter.

Unfortunately, its time to wrap up the series of columns on fishing the Nature Coast waters from paddle craft. I say its unfortunate because readers are still commenting and theres a great deal more to say. However, one has to draw a line somewhere, and this week is it. Feel free to continue sending comments my way, via email or telephone. Among people who have tried fishing local waters from canoes (a relative handful) and kayaks (large majority), one theme repeated itself regularly. Yes, most talked of being able to get into shallow areas not navigable by power craft except air boats, and being able to stalk fish, especially redfish, without spooking them. However, threaded into notes touting the advantages in terms of numbers of fish, was the stillness, the early morning beauty, the ability to observe both fish and wildlife that would have ducked for cover at the sound of a motor. Which is not to say detractors dont make good points. For an interesting perspective, Ill use Ty and Delores Belangers comments. Delores (who founded the Nature Coast Lady Anglers Club, you may recall) said she actually started using a kayak because she couldnt cast far enough. There were too many times, she said, when they had to lay off fish for fear of spooking them with their powerboat, and while Ty could reach them, she could not. So, she reasoned, if the mountain wont come to Mohammed She started taking a kayak along so she could sneak in closer, liked it, and began using the kayak alone. Ty, however, has another take. This is specific to the kayak I borrowed, he pointed out, I know not all paddle craft applies to my experience. He then went on to point out the disadvantages he sees. Distance is limited, and you have to limit your gear considerably. I dont want to say, Oh, I wish I had brought this lure or that lure, but didnt have room. Live bait is a challenge and takes too much space. Sight fishing is difficult unless you have an expensive craft that allows you to stand. There were some other negatives, but they could have been problems specific to the craft he was using, so Ive omitted them. Obviously, paddle angling isnt for everyone, and, like most outdoor recreational activities, it isnt perfect. There are drawbacks in every endeavor; still hunting versus tree stands, swingthrough versus fixed leads on birds, artificial versus natural baits, paddles versus power. One thing is certain if youre thinking about giving kayak angling a try, you need to talk with those who have done it, and before buying a kayak you need to talk with knowledgeable dealers in order to find the type of boat and hull that suits you best. Were fortunate in that we have many such dealers locally, and in many cases theyre happy to let you toss one in the water and give it a try. Theresa was down at River Sport in Homosassa looking for some accessories and mentioned she was considering a second kayak strictly for angling. As it happened, they had a Perception Tribe (www.perception kayaks.com) that had been traded in and the hull configuration caught her eye, so she tried it out to see if it would be as stable as it appeared. It was, but what impressed her even more was the way it tracked (tended to hold a straight line). She bought it. Hands down, the number one kayak choice for fishing is the Wavewalk (www.wavewalk.com), a double-hull kayak thats stable, roomy and comfortable but, unfortunately, expensive.

Tide charts RG SchmidtTIGHT LINES OutdoorsNEWS Talk with the experts before selecting the right kayak Final license-free fishing day Saturday TALLAHASSEE Governor Rick Scott and FWC have announced Dec. 28 will be the last freshwater license-free fishing day for 2013. Although no fishing license is required, all other fishing and boating rules and regulations still apply (see MyFWC.com/Fishing for details). Beginning in 2014, there will be eight license-free fishing days that will fall on the same weekend days from year to year. This will allow anglers to plan fishing trips in advance and businesses and nonprofit groups to create events around these fishing license holidays. According to the American Sportfishing Association, Florida had 1.2 million non-resident anglers visit the Sunshine State in 2011. Regular season wraps up with playoff spots to be determined Associated PressThe New York Giants want to go all out to make a final positive impression in case coach Tom Coughlins job is insecure which it almost certainly is not. How the Washington Redskins respond to Mike Shanahans potentially final day as coach is more uncertain. New York was awful and seemingly disinterested two weeks ago in a home loss to Seattle. But the Giants responded nicely in winning at Detroit to knock the Lions from postseason contention. Many Giants cited their respect for Coughlin, who has won two Super Bowls with them but also has had non-playoff finishes in five seasons at the helm. Im looking ahead, defensive leader Justin Tuck said. Anytime you go into a season like this, you always take time out at the end of the year to go over the goods, the bads and the ugly. Im looking forward to getting back to the top of the heap. You have to shift your focus to thinking about what next year can be because, obviously, this year is kind of a lost cause. Again, weve got one more game to go, and were going to go out there and play it just as if we were a playoff team and needed the win. Even if the Redskins (No. 31, AP Pro32) can beat the Giants (No. 24, AP Pro32), who are favored by 3 1/2 points at the Meadowlands, it figures to mean little for Shanahan. Given Washingtons collapse from division champion to 3-12, criticism of the coachs handling of quarterback Robert Griffin III, and the fact Shanahan is 24-40 in charge in D.C., well, not even a rout of the Giants might matter. Weve got a very mature football team and guys are taking care of business the last couple of weeks, says Shanahan, whose team has dropped seven in a row. Its no different. I like the way they handle themselves. I like the way they prepare. This week will be no different. As far as the Redskins losing again, Shanahan is correct.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE I just made an effort to get to the basket a little more, he said. We just kept wearing on them offensively. They made some tough shots. Los Angeles shot 42 percent in its third straight loss. The Lakers were 14 of 36 from 3-point range as they tried to go over the top to beat the Heats rugged interior. Teams will try to get us moving and play out of our rotations, Heat coach Eric Spoelstra said. Early on they were getting some wide-open ones. Some of those Nick Young hit were tough. Jordan Farmar returned from a left hamstring tear after missing 10 games, giving the Lakers a true point guard to run the offense. But he was ineffective, with three points and two assists in 32 minutes. I hadnt even played 5-on-5 since I got hurt, so this is the first time Ive actually played basketball, he said. Health-wise, everything stayed intact and I felt good out there, so its progress. The Lakers played a competitive game against the loaded Heat despite their poor shooting and the absence of Bryant, Steve Nash (nerve root irritation) and Steve Blake (right elbow). They led by 10 points and never trailed by more than that. I thought we attacked them the way we wanted to, Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said. We can step it up a bit and be a little bit tougher, especially on the boards and places like that. Those things are irritating, but the effort is good. Youngs basket tied the game for the last time at 83-all. The Heat promptly took off on a 13-5 run. Wade, Norris Cole and James scored all of the Heats points. Young answered with his fourth 3-pointer of the game and Meeks made 1 of 2 free throws to pull the Lakers to 96-92 with 1:26 to play. But Wade had an acrobatic reverse layup and James made two foul shots to give Miami some breathing room. Young scored 12 points in the third, when the Lakers trailed by nine before scoring the final seven points of the period, capped by Youngs 3-pointer, to trail 76-74 heading into the fourth.

Before joining Duke, Roper coached at three Southeastern Conference schools Tennessee (2006-07), Kentucky (2005) and Mississippi with Cutcliffe (1999-2004). So he has extensive SEC experience, having coached quarterbacks at Kentucky and Ole Miss, and running backs at Tennessee before arriving in Durham, N.C. In addition to his role as offensive coordinator, he has served as assistant head coach and quarterbacks coach at Duke. Florida is looking to change its offense from a pro-style, run-oriented scheme to an up-tempo system that features more spread formations. The Gators managed just 279 yards in a 26-20 loss to lower-division Georgia Southern on Nov. 23 and then 193 in a season-ending 37-7 loss to Florida State. Florida lost its final seven games and missed a bowl game for the first time since 1990. The Gators threw just four touchdown passes during that losing streak. Over the last two seasons, Duke averaged more than 30 points per game. Duke averaged 408.1 yards and 31.6 points this season, ranking sixth in the ACC in both categories. ROPERContinued from Page B1 Packers LB Clay Matthews out for Bears gameGREEN BAY, Wis. Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will miss Sundays game against the Chicago Bears for the NFC North title after aggravating a right thumb injury. Green Bay didnt practice Wednesday but issued an injury report as if it did. Matthews was listed as out. Matthews got hurt during a sack in Sundays 38-31 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Matthews missed four games earlier this season after initially breaking the thumb in Week 5 in October. Matthews looked to be in extreme pain on the sideline Sunday after the sack. Coach Mike McCarthy has described it as a repeat injury. The Packers return to practice today, when the team is expected to announce if quarterback Aaron Rodgers is ready to return from a left collarbone injury.Welker returns to practice fieldENGLEWOOD, Colo. Wes Welker returned to the Denver Broncos practice field on Christmas Day for the first time since suffering his second concussion on Dec. 8. He was allowed to participate on a limited basis according to the leagues concussion protocol. Also returning to practice was defensive end Derek Wolfe, who hadnt practiced since having a seizure-like episode on the team bus trip to the airport on Nov. 29. And rookie cornerback Kayvon Webster practiced for the first time since undergoing surgery on his right thumb Dec. 13 after breaking it in the first half against San Diego the night before.Tanakas team says he can seek career in MLBTOKYO Pitcher Masahiro Tanaka is set to move to the majors next season after his Japanese team Rakuten Eagles said Wednesday it was prepared to let him leave, reversing its earlier rejection. Rakuten Eagles president Yozo Tachibana told a news conference that it has decided to release him through the posting system. Tachinbana said Tanakas outstanding performance this season meant he deserved to be allowed to move to the U.S. Tanaka went 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA with the Eagles during the regular season and sought a move the majors but he has two years remaining on his contract and Rakuten was under no obligation to release him. Posting is now capped at $20 million, and Tanaka can choose from among the teams which meet that price.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Huskies face Utah State Associated PressSAN DIEGO Jordan Lynch will make a run at history tonight when he suits up for the final time for No. 24 Northern Illinois in the Poinsettia Bowl against Utah State. Lynch already owns the major college record for yards rushing for a quarterback with 1,881. With 119 yards, he can become the first player to rush for 2,000 yards and throw for 2,000. Im just really proud of him and wish I had him for about 10 more years but we dont, NIU coach Rod Carey said. This is the last game we get him. Thats the biggest thing with him. Lynch has passed for 2,676 yards and 23 touchdowns. Hes rushed for 22 scores and even caught a touchdown pass in leading the Huskies to a 12-1 record. Listen, we ask him to do a lot, and its not because thats our system. Its because he can, Carey said. Those are the things that amaze you. He makes the complicated things and the hard things skillwise look easy. Thats what amazes you every day. You tell him one time one play and then its done. Its locked in a vault. Thats what is amazing to me. Thats why Lynch was named to The Associated Press All-America team as an all-purpose player. Utah State coach Matt Wells knows Lynch has quite the supporting cast in fellow 1,000-yard rusher Cameron Stingily and wide receivers Tommylee Lewis and DaRon Brown. Jordan Lynch is fun to watch its not fun to watch because you understand youre going to have to defend him, but from a quarterback perspective, Ive got a lot of respect for him, said Wells, who played quarterback at Utah State in the mid-1990s. The guy is an 1,800-yard running back, and by the way hes over 60-percent completion and 3-to-1 touchdown-interception ratio. Its amazing, and thats back-to-back years. As you study him and the things that hes done since hes become a starter, hes a flat-out winner, Wells said. I said to Rod last Wednesday when we were talking, you know, its almost like its a once-in-alifetime young man to coach because I know hes the face of that program and everything that hes meant to that staff and that program and that city, that university. Here are five things to look for when Northern Illinois plays Utah State (8-5): LYNCH PIN: Lynch accounts for 65 percent of the NIU offense with 1,881 yards rushing, 2,676 passing and 43 touchdowns. Hes 24-3 as the starter in two seasons. His eight 100-yard rushing games include two of more than 300 yards. CONSOLATION PRIZE: The teams are coming off losses in conference championship games. NIU, the Mid-American Conference West Division champion, was routed 47-27 by Bowling Green in the conference title game. Utah State, which edged Boise State for the Mountain West Mountain Division title, lost 24-17 to Fresno State in the league championship game. SKILL GUYS: Lynch isnt a one-man band. Cameron Stingily has 1,081 yards rushing, giving NIU its first 1,000-yard rushing tandem. Three wide receivers have at least 30 catches each: Tommylee Lewis has 80 catches for 660 yards and three touchdowns, DaRon Brown has 42 catches for 689 yards and nine scores and Juwan Brescacin has 30 catches for 469 yards and five TDs. LINEBACKERS: Jake Doughty and Zach Vigil lead an Aggies defense that has intercepted 16 passes in its last nine games and scored three touchdowns in 2013. Doughty has 140 tackles, two sacks, an interception, one fumble recovery which he returned 86 yards for a TD against Fresno State and one forced fumble. Vigil has 115 tackles, two sacks, one interception, two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles. BOWLING: NIU is playing in its sixth straight bowl game and second Poinsettia Bowl. It lost 37-7 to TCU in 2006 Poinsettia Bowl. Utah State is playing in its school-record third straight bowl game. The Aggies are facing a MAC team in a bowl for the third straight year and the fourth time overall. They beat Toledo in last years Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, lost to Ohio in the 2011 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl and beat Ball State in the 1993 Las Vegas Bowl.B4THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS 000GZ3E Associated PressNorthern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch looks to make a pass Nov. 13 against Ball State in DeKalb, Ill.

Lynch already owns the major college record for yards rushing for a quarterback with 1,881. With 119 yards, he can become the first player to rush for 2,000 yards and throw for 2,000. NIUs Lynch makes a run at history in Poinsettia Bowl Thunder roll over Knicks Associated PressNEW YORK Kevin Durant scored 29 points, Russell Westbrook had a triple-double by the middle of the third quarter, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rolled to a 123-94 victory Wednesday over the New York Knicks, who played without Carmelo Anthony. The Durant-Anthony showdown between the NBAs top two scorers was canceled because of Anthonys sprained left ankle, so the Thunder had the Christmas spotlight all to themselves while winning for the 10th time in 11 games. Westbrook finished with 14 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in his first triple-double of the season and seventh of his career. Serge Ibaka added 24 points on 10-of14 shooting. Amare Stoudemire scored a season-high 22 points, and Tim Hardaway Jr. had 21 for the Knicks, who also were missing starting point guard Raymond Felton. J.R. Smith scored 20 points, but shot 8 for 22 and was booed when he left the court for good.Bulls 95, Nets 78NEW YORK Taj Gibson scored 20 points and Jimmy Butler added 15, and the Chicago Bulls routed the Brooklyn Nets 95-78. Trailing 50-49 early in the third quarter, the Bulls took over behind Butler. He keyed a 21-5 run that gave Chicago control. Butler, who sat out the last game with a right ankle injury, started the burst with a 3-pointer and then soon added a three-point play that made it 57-52. That was the first of 12 straight points by the Bulls. Another three-point play by Butler made it 66-52. Chicago (11-16) led by 19 at the end of the period after Reggie Evans dunk with less than a second left ended a 5 1/2-minute field goal drought for the Nets (9-19). Brooklyn couldnt get much closer in the fourth and was serenaded with a chorus of loud boos from the fans. What once was viewed as a Christmas Day showdown between Eastern Conference contenders became a matchup of two of the NBAs biggest disappointments so far, as both teams have been plagued by injuries.Rockets 111, Spurs 98SAN ANTONIO James Harden scored 28 points and Dwight Howard had 15 points and 20 rebounds, leading the balanced Houston Rockets to a 111-98 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season. San Antonio (22-7) still leads the Southwest Division by 3 1/2 games over Houston. Chandler Parsons and Terrence Jones each scored 21 points for the Rockets (19-11), who shot 52 percent from the field. Jeremy Lin had 13 points, eight assists and just one turnover. Bowling Green looks for repeat performance at Ford Field Falcons take on Pitt in Pizza Bowl Associated PressDETROIT Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald won a slew of awards this year. The senior is hoping to close the season with a win tonight against Bowling Green at the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl to help the Panthers finish with a winning record for the first time since he was a freshman. The Falcons wont be easy to beat. Bowling Green (10-3) is favored to top the Panthers (6-6) at Ford Field, where it defeated previously unbeaten and 16th-ranked Northern Illinois in the Mid-American Conference championship game earlier this month. The impressive victory and the programs turnaround led to Wake Forest hiring coach Dave Clawson away from the Falcons. Bowling Green picked former Eastern Illinois coach Dino Babers to replace Clawson but will be led in the bowl game by interim coach Adam Scheier. Here are some things to watch when Pittsburgh and Bowling Green match up in the Motor City: DOMINANT DONALD: Donald won the Lombardi, Outland, Nagurski and Bednarik awards and was the ACC defensive player of the year. The 6-foot, 285-pound defensive tackle had 10 sacks this season and led the nation with 2.2 tackles for loss per game. Hes a disruptive force, Scheier said. Were just going to have to keep him in check. POTENT OFFENSE: Bowling Green averaged 35.4 points and 472.5 yards with a balanced offense. Travis Greene ran for a single-season, school-record 1,555 yards. Matt Johnson threw for 3,195 yards with 23 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Johnson outplayed Heisman Trophy finalist Jordan Lynch in the MAC title game, throwing four of his career-high five touchdown passes in the first half. He was 21 of 27 for a career-high 393 yards, connected with five teammates for scores and didnt throw an interception against a team playing for a BCS bowl bid. CONSISTENTLY AVERAGE: The Panthers finished 6-7 in each of the last two years, capping each losing season with a lopsided defeat at the Compass Bowl. Mississippi routed Pitt 38-17 last season and SMU beat the Panthers 28-6 a year earlier. We want to finish strong and wanted the opportunity to play another game with this group, second-year Pitt coach Paul Chryst said. We like this group, and theres a big difference in our room between going 7-6 and 6-7. Associated PressBowling Green running back Travis Greene protects the ball from Mississippi State defenders Oct. 12 in Starkville, Miss.

Boise States Derrick Marks had a chance to tie with less than 30 seconds left, but missed a 15-foot jumper. Melvin Ejim had 15 points and 10 rebounds. The win gives Iowa State its best start to a season in school history. Derrick Marks had 23 points for Boise State (10-3).

Section CTHURSDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE J.M. HIRSCH Associated PressIt wasnt Paula Deens career implosion. Nor the rise and fall of the Cronut. It wasnt even the Sriracha apocalypse.This years most significant food moment was more seismic, an event 125 years in the making. For 2013 was the first time in a long time that the food world had something new to say about Thanksgiving. Turkey Day converged with Hanukkah, creating a holiday mashup that hasnt happened since 1888, and wont again for 79,000 years. Suddenly, foodies were aflutter with the possibilities of turkeyshaped menorahs and pumpkin latkes. Or maybe it only excited those of us in the culinary media trenches, the wretches who must reinvent the foods of both holidays year after year. Fair enough. Luckily, there were plenty of other food world distractions. Deen, for example. For a second year running, she earned the top spot in the catastrophic PR category. In 2012, she was flogged for announcing she had both diabetes and a lucrative endorsement deal for a drug to treat the condition shed until then hidden. This summer, she acknowledged having used racial slurs in the past. Her endorsement, book and TV deals melted away faster than butter in a piping hot skillet. Then a few months later, another foodie fessed up to bad behavior. Nigella Lawson said shed used cocaine and marijuana ... and nobody seemed to mind. Heat fiends ended the year angsting over the future of Sriracha, the trendy hot sauce with the rooster on the bottle. The trouble started when people living near the Irwindale, Calif.-based Huy Fong Foods complained that odors from its manufacturing plant were burning their eyes. A court ordered the company to halt production until the odors could be brought under control. Then last month even shipments of already bottled Sriracha were stopped after California health officials enforced stricter guidelines that require the company to age the sauces 35 days before shipping. But dont worry. Though the nation may be facing a Sriracha shortage, at least we now have enough serve-yourself frozen yogurt shops to nearly rival Starbucks population density. Please make it stop. I understand that trends tend to be cyclical, but lets rush this one back to the s, shall we? And while were at it, lets also rid ourselves of the most overused food term of 2013: celebrity chef. There are plenty of people in the food world who truly deserve that title. They tend to be smart enough to not use it. And PR people, take note any time I see somebody described as a celebrity chef, I assume they arent and hit delete. It was a year of culinary comebacks. Wonder bread, Twinkies and a host of other Hostess Brands goodies were relaunched by new owners after disappearing in 2012 when the company went out of business. One thing that wont be coming back? Artificial trans fats. The FDA announced in November it will require the food industry to phase out the ingredient that once was a staple of baked goods, microwave popcorn and fried foods. Better make sure you keep those new Twinkies away from school cafeterias. Federal officials this summer announced new rules to limit the calories, fat, sugar and sodium on snacks, drinks and a la carte items sold at schools during the day, an expansion of similar rules launched last year for meals. But no need to cut back just yet; the changes wont take effect until next summer. Meanwhile, how to trim the nearly $80 billion-a-year food stamp program was the biggest deal breaker in congressional budget talks on the five-year farm bill. The Republican-controlled House this summer passed a $4 billion annual cut, while the Democratic Senate passed a version cutting just $400 million a year. This month, they agreed to disagree until the end of January, when theyll need to take up the issue again. Americas obsession with cultish hard-to-get foods was over-the-top. The McRib? So last year. The musteat items of 2013 were all about exclusivity French chef Dominique Ansels Cronut, a croissant-doughnut hybrid, and Keizo Shimamotos ramen burger, a beef patty served between buns of ramen noodles.

Associated Press Celebrity chef Paula Deen appears on NBC News Today show June 26 in New York. Deen dissolved into tears during the interview about her admission that she used a racial slur in the past. The scandal claimed her career, or at least her career as she knew it advertisers fled from Deens image, and her shows were quickly dropped from TV. See TABLE/ Page C6

C2THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFLAIRFORFOOD Associated PressA nutrition label on a can of soda is pictured Sept. 15, 2011, in Philadelphia. As people pay closer attention to what they eat, companies are learning that funny-sounding chemicals and other ingredients can be a bullseye for criticism from online petitions and food bloggers. While companies stand by the safety of such ingredients, some are nevertheless removing them to stave off bad publicity. The advent of a New Year is the perfect moment to make merry with sparkling wine. Legend has it that Marilyn Monroe once took a bath in a tub filled with 40 gallons of Champagne, this according to one biographer, George Barris. True or not, the worlds fascination with bubbly wine is enduring. A new job, the birth of a child, weddings, or any special event is cause for the choice of Champagne. A few suggestions for New Year Eve follow, but first, a few attention-grabbing facts: True Champagne comes from only for the region in France with the same name located about 90 miles east of Paris. The rest of the world does make wine that sparkles, but it is not the real McCoy. Heres a surprise: Champagne flutes, which for a long while replaced the round, flat stems cast off years ago, are now themselves pass. Connoisseurs now suggest a return to the peach-shaped vessel, but one holding at least 10 ounces of liquid to give the bubbles a better chance to show off. All Champagnes are blends of 30 or more separate still wines. The complex process by which Champagne is made requires a second fermentation (they all begin as still wines) during which natural carbon dioxide gas is trapped inside each bottle. This is how any decent sparkling wine gets its bubbles. The really cheap stuff is made by merely adding carbon dioxide. One of the axioms of Champagne (and other sparkling wines made in the traditional manner) has been: The smaller the bubbles, the finer the wine. French Champagne makers are known for producing different styles, from light to full-bodied. Examples of each are: Lanson (light), Perrier-Jouet and Taitenger (medium) and Louis Roederer and Bollinger (full). Three types of Champagne (read the label) are: Blanc de Blanc, made entirely from white chardonnay grapes; blanc de noir, the opposite, an ever-so-slightly pink-tinged golden Champagne finished wholly from red grapes; and Ros Champagne, which well get to in a moment. The rest of the golden-colored Champagnes are a blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. Ros Champagne is considered the ne plus ultra. They are harder to create. The best and historical method is to add some of the base wine to be in contact with pinot noir skins, until it picks up enough color to tint the wine pink. Another, more common, technique is to add a dose of pinot noir wine into a bottle before the second fermentation. Bev and I love pink Champagne; its so festive. A common mistake many good folks make is to drink Champagne with caviar. Trust me on this one: Salty fish eggs and sparkling wine are a mismatch. If you enjoy caviar, drink it with icecold Russian or Polish vodka. Brut on the bottle means it is drier in taste than extra dry. That is just the way it is. True Champagne is expensive, averaging $25 to $45 a bottle. There are any number of sparkling wines prepared both in France and the United States, as well as sundry other countries sure to satisfy the urge to celebrate the New Year of 2014. Most are dry in nature, but for those who prefer a sweeter wine, try Asti Spumonti, or a medium dry Prosecco, both from Italy. Spanish cava is fine choice for sparkling wine and runs about a third of true Champagne. Other suggestions, and check with you wine consultant, are sparkling Vouvray, Crment de Loire, or the dry German sparkler Sekt. California sparkling wines are all decenttasting choices, at under $20 for most. Some of our favorites are Gloria Ferrer, Roederer Estate, Domaine Chandon and Mumm Napa Valley, or from Washington State always a best buy is Chateau Ste. Michelle reliable and priced at about $10.

Ron DrinkhouseWINES N SUCH Elizabeth CoblentzTHE AMISH COOK This year, resolve to drink more Champagne Editors note: Due to slow mail delivery, Lovinas column did not arrive in time for publication this week. But since this is a season of reflection and renewal, I thought this would be a good time to go back into the archives and re-run a holiday column from years past. The column is from 1991 wow, how life has changed since then! For those new to the column, it was written by Elizabeth Coblentz from 1991 to 2002. One of her daughters, Lovina Eicher, has written it since. Kevin WilliamsWell, Im searching my brain, trying to think what would logically be the next thing I could write about. The holidays are in store for us, especially now that December appears on the calendar. Snow permitting, sleigh rides are enjoyed this time of year. Families are busy making plans for their holiday gatherings. All kinds of baking and candy making takes place and lots of these goodies are passed out to family, friends, and neighbors and, also, to the ones in need. of presents increases the excitement of children and even adults at gatherings. The children enjoy meeting Santa with his treats, while shopping with the businesses with their music, traditional lights, and trimmings. Its a special time of year to always look forward to the holidays. Although we never know what God has in store for us, December always brings back sad memories when our family left on a trip for the weekend and by Sunday evening word came that my Grandpa had died. It was a sad Christmas for Grandma and the rest of the family of 14 married children and families. Also, I remember holiday gatherings which always seemed so enjoyable at Grandpas. It just never seemed the same at the gatherings after he was gone. But since my Dad is gone our family gathering has also ended at this time of year. We now have our family to look forward to at holiday time. Here is a holiday recipe:Peanutty squaresINGREDIENTS:1 cup peanut butter1 cup peanuts2 cups marshmallow crme 4 cups Cheerios1 stick margarine DIRECTIONS: Melt together peanut butter, peanuts, marshmallow crme and margarine. When blended together, add to Cheerios with one cup of brown sugar. Press into a buttered 9x13 pan, allow to cool, and cut into squares. Taking time to remember what was Associated PressNEW YORK Take another look at that food label. An ingredient or two may have vanished. As Americans pay closer attention to what they eat, food and beverage companies are learning that unfamiliar ingredients can invite criticism from online petitions and bloggers. The risk of damaging publicity has proven serious enough that some manufacturers have reformulated top-selling products to remove mysterious, unpronounceable components that could draw suspicion. Earlier this year, for example, PepsiCo Inc. said it would stop using brominated vegetable oil in Gatorade and find another way to evenly distribute color in the sports drink. Last year, Starbucks said it would stop using a red dye made of crushed bugs based on comments it received through a variety of means, including an online petition, and switch to a tomato-based extract. Kraft Foods plans to replace artificial dyes with colors derived from natural spices in select varieties of its macaroni and cheese, a nod to the feedback its hearing from parents. Ali Dibadj, a Bernstein analyst who covers the packaged food and beverage industry, says the changes reflect a shift from democratization to activism by consumers. It used to be that people would just decide not to buy the product. Now theyre actually agitating for change, Dibadj said. Theres a bullhorn which is the Internet so you can get a lot of people involved very quickly. Companies stand by the safety of their old recipes. Although they dont typically provide details on production decisions, their reasons for using certain ingredients can include cost and manufacturing efficiencies. Still, food and beverage makers can be sensitive about broadcasting any changes. Chick-fil-A, for instance, has been removing artificial dyes and high-fructose corn syrup from its dressings and sauces. The Atlanta-based chain is also testing a clean ingredient bun but has not alerted customers. The reason companies dont publicize it is that they dont want to bring attention to these ingredients. They want to slowly start to remove them until theyre all gone, said Vani Hari, who runs the site FoodBabe.com and has pressured companies to remove artificial dyes and other ingredients. There are no numbers tracking how many companies are reformulating products in response to consumer demand. But even if recipe changes arent in direct response to petitions or blogs, executives understand that ingredients can become a liability once they fall out of favor with the public. High-fructose corn syrup, for example, has gained a negative image in recent years and has been blamed for fueling bad eating habits. The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a health advocacy group, says the sweetener is no more harmful than ordinary sugar in large amounts. But Kroger Co. decided to remove it from store-brand cereals following surveys with consumers in 2011. The supermarket chain isnt alone. Over the past decade, the use of high-fructose corn syrup in packaged foods and drinks has fallen 18 percent to 6.1 million tons last year, according to market researcher Euromonitor International. The latest moves to swap out ingredients underscore the growing sway consumers have through sites such as Change.org, which lets people post petitions. In the past, a customer complaint about an ingredient may have been addressed with a boilerplate letter from corporate headquarters. But now people can go online to share their concerns with thousands of like-minded individuals. John Boeheim, of New Yorks Hudson Valley, says he avoids a number of ingredients, including the artificial sweetener aspartame and a red dye, in part because of what hes read on blogs and social media. Weve taught our kids to look at the labels, to look at the ingredients, Boeheim said. Companies are paying attention too. Chick-fil-A says it will continue to improve ingredients to keep up with changing tastes and even invited Hari to spend the day at its headquarters sharing her concerns. Not all companies are making changes, at least not right away. The Mississippi teenager who called for the removal of brominated vegetable oil in Gatorade, for instance, is now taking aim at Coca-Colas Powerade, which also contains the ingredient in select varieties. As of Tuesday, Sarah Kavanaghs petition had more than 57,000 supporters. In a statement, Coca-Cola noted that all its ingredients comply with regulations. But the company also said it is always looking for ways to evolve its formulas. Another petition that asks Mars Inc. to remove artificial colors from M&Ms had more than 141,000 signatures. In an emailed statement, the privately held company stressed the safety of its ingredients. Although it has not announced any changes, the company noted that it continues to explore the use of naturally sourced colors and that it is constantly evaluating its ingredients based on a variety of factors, including consumer preference. As food labels get closer look, ingredients vanish Earlier this year, for example, PepsiCo Inc. said it would stop using brominated vegetable oil in Gatorade and find another way to evenly distribute color in the sports drink. Last year, Starbucks said it would stop using a red dye made of crushed bugs based on comments it received and switch to a tomato-based extract. Kraft Foods plans to replace artificial dyes with colors derived from natural spices in select varieties of its macaroni and cheese, a nod to the feedback its hearing from parents.

Update, improve rate AARP slates Safe Driving Course schedule for January, February Special to the ChronicleThe Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) Nature Coast Chapter contributed their package wrapping skills this year to the Family Resource Center to help reduce the number of packages down from the 1,000 needed by Dec. 20. We provide for approximately 1,700 children during this time of the year. We could have at least 200 more children before the Christmas season is over, said Channing Heater, administrative assistant at the Family Resource Center. Caseworkers and people in the community make recommendations of needy children and assist in the delivery of the wrapped packages before Christmas. The Family Resource Center started out as the Foster Family Association in 1983, according to CEO Ginger West. The Family Resource Center collaborates with every major agency in Citrus County that works with families and children. Having a great time wrapping gifts, representing the FPRA Nature Coast Chapter, are Elizabeth Austin, Richard Fernley, Dorothy Pernu, Mathew Baillargeon and Katie Mehl. For more information about the Nature Coast Chapter or FPRA, go to www.fpra-naturecoast.org or contact chapter president Katie Mehl at 352-344-6501. FPRA assists Family Resource Center Knights play Santa Special to the ChronicleKnights of Columbus Grand Knight Dominic Bonanno, top, and Jim Louque delivered more than 300 toys to Ginger West at the Family Resource Center in Hernando on Dec. 11 for children who otherwise might have gone without a visit from Santa Claus at Christmas. The mountain of toys was a result of a campaign led by Louque that received toys from Knights, their ladies and bingo players. Typically, caseworkers from schools contact the Family Resource Center for toys upon noticing children facing a giftless Christmas. Demand usually continues right up through Christmas Eve, although the toy shop closes on Dec. 22. Caseworkers take the gift-wrapped toys to households that need them. In a room next to the mound of toys from the Knights that day, a half dozen volunteers were busy wrapping toys.

C4THURSDAY, DECEMBER26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Albert Einstein said, Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted. At the bridge table, you hope that everything you need to count accurately can be. In todays deal, it is East who needs to count, aided and abetted by West. South is in four hearts. West leads his fourthhighest club. How should East plan the defense? South had a minimum two-heart response. He planned to rebid three hearts to invite game, but when North supported hearts, this increased the value of Souths hand, so he bid game. Why did West lead a club instead of a diamond? Because it was his stronger suit and because I peeked at the full deal and saw that a diamond lead would kill the defense! East should realize that almost certainly his side has to take either three clubs and one diamond or two clubs and two diamonds but which? First, East must find out whether South started with two clubs or three. East wins the first trick with his club king and cashes the club ace. Here, West follows with his two, showing that he began with five clubs. Now East must try for two diamond tricks how? If West has the diamond king, it does not matter; but in case South has the king and West the queen, East must shift to a low diamond. Now the only question is: Will South guess correctly? Note that if West had started with only four clubs, his second card would have been higher than the three. Then East would have cashed the diamond ace before leading a third club.

This is literally an epidemic everywhere. Anger and hatred are destroying families. My husband and I have three adult children who were the delight of our lives. We had a typical loving family, with vacations, birthday parties and special celebrations that included friends and extended family. We had anxious times during illnesses, surgeries and accidents, but we made it through. All three of our children have grown to be successful, well-liked and respected adults. Sadly, over the past 22 years, they all have chosen to shut us out of their lives. Weve had minor disagreements at times, but never any major battles that might justify their choices. None of them will tell us why they are angry. They refuse to have any contact or open dialog that might heal our relationship. I know youre probably thinking there must be something. If so, we dont know what it is. My husband is 81, and I am 78. We understand there is a real possibility that we will never hear from our children before we die. We do our best to focus on the great times we had and to hold onto the many precious memories of their growing-up years. Holidays are the hardest, but with Gods help, we make it through. We have forgiven our children and will always pray for them. We will always thank God for choosing us to be their parents. Joining the Letting Go Club Dear Joining: Your letter is heartbreaking. When children are brought up by loving parents, we dont know why some remain close and others do not. The same fire that melts butter will forge steel. If you have any family members who are in touch with your children, perhaps they could help you understand what is going on and even intercede on your behalf. In the meantime, you are wise to accept what you cannot change and compassionate to forgive those who have hurt you. Dear Annie: Im a little late sending out my Christmas cards, but I hope to have them all done before the holiday season is over. What is the proper etiquette when writing Christmas cards to families with children over 18 still living at home? Can I send one card to them all, or do I need to send the kids their own? Hurrying Before the New Year Dear Hurrying: It is perfectly OK to send one holiday card to the entire family if they are all living in the same house, although it would be nice to put all of their names on the envelope. Dear Annie: Speaking for Another Lost Veteran said her 55-year-old bipolar niece is hanging onto her stepfathers ashes instead of allowing him to be buried next to his late wife in a military cemetery. When we knew that my late husband was dying, he said he would like his ashes to be scattered on the ocean. I was heartbroken because I wanted to be buried with him. And being a Vietnam veteran, he deserved a military funeral with full honors. When he died, the funeral director placed some of his ashes in three tiny urns, one for each of his grown children and one for me. The remainder was divided in half. One half was buried at a national cemetery with full honors, and the other half was placed in a container made for scattering ashes at sea. Our family set it afloat on the ocean that had given him so much joy through the years. In this way, I believe I satisfied everyones wishes, most of all, his.

You missed those trends? You were probably busy eating Greek yogurt and kale salads. In fact, pretty much all things vegetable and vegan were hot (cue the smug look from all the hippies who knew this back in the s). This summers crop of food magazines was so smitten with vegetables, they seemed to forget a lot of people like to grill meat, too. In other media news, the Food Network turned 20 (Bam!), ABCs The Chew spit out its 500th episode, Gordon Ramsays Fox show Kitchen Nightmares went viral after featuring an Arizona couple having an epic meltdown, and popular recipe website Allrecipes.com spun off into a real world print edition with Allrecipes magazine. In the restaurant world, fastfood workers protested pay levels, photo apps continued to disrupt meals (and annoy restaurateurs), computer tablets increasingly displaced old-fashioned menus and order pads, and we almost lost Alice Waters iconic Berkeley, Calif., restaurant Chez Panisse to fire in March (it reopened this summer). But the food world did lose three icons. Chicago chef Charlie Trotter died at age 54 in November from a stroke. He was credited with reinvigorating fine dining in America and putting Chicago at the vanguard of the food world. Marcella Hazan, who taught generations of Americans how to create simple, fresh Italian food, died in September at 89. And Judy Rodgers, the award-winning chef behind San Franciscos Zuni Cafe, died this month at 57. Whats in store for 2014? Weve yet to crack the code for the perfect cookbook app. Will this be the year? Lets all cross our fingers that the gluten-free bubble finally bursts. The Olympics will have us (briefly) smitten with vodka and pirozhki. Well, maybe the vodka part of that affair wont be brief. And while veggies will still be hot, sustainable seafood could be the new kale.

RIGHT: Alice Waters poses outside the new front entrance to her Chez Panisse restaurant in Berkeley, Calif. After a fire in March shut the doors to the famous gourmet restaurant, the eatery reopened in June. TABLEContinued from Page C1 Associated PressNEW YORK A California wine collector and influential peddler of rare vintages was convicted Wednesday of fraud for manufacturing fake old wine in his kitchen. Rudy Kurniawan, whose family gained wealth operating a beer distributorship in Indonesia, was expressionless after being convicted of mail and wire fraud for selling more than $1.3 million worth of counterfeit bottles to other wealthy collectors. Sentencing was set for April 24, when Kurniawan faces up to 40 years in prison. After Kurniawan, 37, was led out of the courtroom by U.S. marshals, attorney Jerome Mooney said his client was disappointed. Mooney said the trial had revealed the dont ask, dont tell culture in the high-end vintage wine business over what was being sold. In closing arguments a day earlier, prosecutors said Kurniawan put on a magic show to fool aficionados into thinking he had access to the worlds rarest wines. They said he made millions of dollars from 2004 to 2012 by manufacturing fake vintage wine in his Arcadia, Calif., kitchen, even though he had been ordered to leave the country in 2003. But Mooney said the government had discovered the suburban Los Angeles home of a hoarder when they arrested the Indonesianborn defendant last year, mistaking the hundreds of corks and other winemaking paraphernalia stuffed in drawers and closets as evidence that the home had been converted into a fake wine factory. Prosecutors said money from the fraud funded a lavish lifestyle in suburban Los Angeles that included luxury cars, designer clothing and fine food and drinks. Mooney said all of Kurniawans assets have been seized or have had liens placed against them, including the Arcadia home where his 67-year-old mother resides after she obtained asylum. The trial featured testimony from billionaire yachtsman, entrepreneur and wine investor William Koch, who said he was conned and cheated by Kurniawan into paying $2.1 million for 219 fake bottles of wine. I was disappointed and I was angry, he testified. Michael Egan, a fine wine expert hired by Koch to determine how many of the 43,000 bottles of wine he owns are fake, testified during the trial for the government that evidence collected from Kurniawans property included 19,000 counterfeit wine bottle labels representing 27 of the worlds best wines. Outside court after the verdict, Egan said the investigation and trial has highlighted an area of the wine resale market thats now been cleaned up, thanks in part to increased awareness from winemakers who now defend their brands and defend French winemaking in general. Prosecutors said Kurniawan made some mistakes along the way that exposed his fraud. For one, they alleged that a bottle of Domaine Ponsot he attempted to sell at auction in 2008 was passed off as having been made in 1929, even though the winemaker didnt begin estate bottling until 1934. Others were billed as having been bottled at a specific vineyard between 1945 and 1971, even though Domaine Ponsot said it didnt start using that vineyard until 1982.

G12Thursday, December 26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME OURTIME Discovering the joy of retirementJanuary 20134SilverSneakers classes keep seniors in shape................Page G6Age-friendly phones help seniors stay in touchDear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good age-friendly home telephones for elderly seniors? My 82-year-old mother has a difficult time hearing over the phone and her vision and memory arent so great either. Shopping Son Dear Shopping, There are literally dozens of different types and styles of agefriendly phones on the market today to help seniors with a variety of challenges like hearing loss, low vision, memory problems and limited mobility.How to chooseTo help you select a good agefriendly phone for your mom, you need to take into account her specific needs and wants because there are lots of options to choose from. For example, for seniors with hearing loss there are amplified telephones, both corded and cordless, to provide various levels of amplification usually ranging from 25 decibels (dB) up to around 55 dB, with some offering tone adjustments for high-frequency hearing loss. Most amplified phones are also hearing-aid compatible and come with extraloud ringers and bright ring flashers to indicate incoming calls. Most amplified phones also come with big buttons and a lighted keypad that make them easier to see and easier to operate for seniors with hand tremors or dexterity problems. Some phones even offer talk back buttons that speak the number as you dial. If remembering is a problem, you may want you consider a photo phone for your mom that lets you insert pictures of family members or friends over preprogrammed buttons, so she can simply press the picture of the person she wants to call and theyre automatically dialed. Emergency alert phones are another option to consider, especially for elderly seniors who live alone. These phones come with a neck pendant or wristband (SOS button) that your mom would wear, so if she falls down and cant get up, she can press it and the phones preprogrammed emergency numbers will automatically be dialed. If mobility is an issue, there are speaker phones you can purchase that will let your mom activate the phone with her voice. And since telemarketing fraud is so common among the elderly, many age-friendly phones have built in caller IDs so she can identify whos calling before she picks up. Some phones even offer outgoing speech amplification for seniors with weak, difficult-to-hear speaking voices.Where to shopWhile there are many companies that make and sell age-friendly telephones, the leading suppliers in the industry are Clarity (clarity products.com), ClearSounds (clear sounds.com), Serene Innovations (sereneinnovations.com), Geemarc (geemarc.com) and VTech (vtechphones.com). To find these and other models, visit their respective websites, or try assistive hearing sites like harriscomm.com, teltex.com and soundbytes.com. Prices typically range from $30 up to around $300.Free phonesAnother option you should check into is state-funded specialized telecommunications equipment programs, which are available in 47 states. If your moms state has a program, you may be able to get her an amplified telephone for free. Captioned phonesIf your mom has severe hearing loss, another option you should know about is captioned telephones that have a built-in display window that would let your mom listen to the caller, as well as read written, word-for-word captions of everything the caller is saying. Options available include: CapTel (captel.com) sold through Weitbrecht Communications Inc. for $75, however many states have programs that offer them for free to residents in need; the popular new Clarity Ensemble that sells for $75 through clarityproducts.com; and the $75 CaptionCall at captioncall.com.

WE ARE WE ARE HERE HERE TO HELP TO HELP Dear Margaret: My husband and I have been married for 57 years and currently live alone. He is a retired Army Colonel. We are experiencing declining health and he has been diagnosed with dementia. I have been thinking about assisted living, but because of the economy, I am worried we will run out of money The Colonels Wife Dear Colonels Wife: In todays economy, everyone is worried about making their money last and having enough to take care of themselves. When looking at the cost of assisted living versus living in your own home, there are a lot of factors you should consider, plus with your husbands diagnosis of dementia, there are certain safety factors that you will need to think about too. Your home expenses, even if your home is paid for, add up, especially when you factor in your utilities, food, insurance and taxes on your home, upkeep and insurance for your automobile, lawn care, home repairs or hired help to assist you and your husband with your personal needs. When moving into assisted living, we provide you with safe, secure, worry free living by providing 24 hour a day/7 day a week, care, 3 meals a day with snacks, utilities, transportation, a full activities program, housekeeping and maintenance. As a veteran, you and your husband may qualify for the VA Aid and Attendance Pension that helps the veteran and his/her spouse with the cost of assisted living services. The pension will also help widows and widowers. Contact your local VA benefits office for more information on this pension. I am sure that Assisted Living Services are much more affordable than you expect. Come and join us for a tour of Superior Residences of Lecanto to learn more.

Is prostate cancer screening right for you?To screen, or not to screen? When it comes to prostate cancer, this is the question men and health care professionals want to answer correctly. But the final decision must be an informed decision, because like most things, the answer is not always a simple yes or no. Cancer screening tests including the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to look for signs of prostate cancer can be a good idea. Prostate cancer screening can help identify cancer early on, when treatment is most effective. And a normal PSA test, combined with a digital rectal exam, can help reassure you that it's unlikely you have prostate cancer. There are a number of pros and cons to the PSA test. On the positive side, PSA screening may help you detect prostate cancer early, when it is easier to treat and more likely to be cured. On the other hand, PSA tests arent foolproof and can lead to false-positives and sometimes overtreatment of cancers that are slow growing and will never spread beyond the prostate gland. Additionally, a high PSA level does not always mean a man has prostate cancer. PSA levels may be high in men with benign prostate enlargement, prostatitis (an infection) and other common prostate problems. The PSA isnt the only screening tool for prostate cancer. A digital rectal examination (DRE) should always be done with a PSA test when screening for prostate cancer. A DRE is a handson exam in which a doctor feels the prostate for bumps or abnormalities. The thought of this is likely uncomfortable, but it is a quick, safe and easy test that minimizes the risk of missing prostate cancer or wrongly identifying a benign prostate abnormality as cancer. Knowing the risk factors for prostate cancer can help you decide if and when you want to begin prostate cancer screening. Older men, African-American men and men who have a family history or prostate cancer have a greater risk of developing prostate cancer. Most prostate cancer is found in men age 65 or older. To screen, or not to screen? In the end, the answer is up to you. For some men, a positive PSA test can be a lifesaver. Its generally a good idea to have a PSA and DRE if you are at increased risk of prostate cancer. But not all men need to be screened. Consider the pros and cons of screening, your age, general health and risk factors. Talk with health care professionals who have your best interest in mind.

Planning menus can be simpleNational Institute on AgingPlanning a days worth of meals using smart food choices might seem overwhelming at first. Here are some sample menus to show you how easy it can be. These menus provide 2,000 calories a day. You might need to eat fewer or more calories, depending on your activity level and whether you are a man or a woman. The U.S. Department of Agricultures ChooseMyPlate offers sample menus (PDF, 776K) for a week. Although it might look like the recommended amounts for a food group are not met or are exceeded in a single day, the average over a week meets recommendations. Making a shopping list will help you in two ways. It will remind you to look for the nutritious foods you should be eating and it will make it easier to stick to your food budget. Be sure to include the items you need for your menus and any low-calorie basics you need to restock in your kitchen. This sample shopping list from www.health .gov includes a variety of healthy foods for you to look for. You can make a blank copy of these pages to use when you shop, or use this list as a basis for making your own shopping list. Of course, you wont need everything listed here every time you shop, but this will help you remember what you need to buy. Sample menu 1Breakfast Breakfast burrito 1 flour tortilla (8-inch diameter) 1 scrambled egg 1/3 cup black beans 2 tablespoons salsa 1/2 large grapefruit 1 cup water, coffee, or tea Lunch Roast beef sandwich 1 small whole-grain hoagie bun 2 ounces lean roast beef 1 slice part-skim mozzarella cheese 2 slices tomato 1/4 cup mushrooms (cooked in 1 tsp. corn/canola oil) 1 teaspoon mustard Potato wedges 1 cup potato wedges (cooked in 1 tsp. canola oil) 1 tablespoon ketchup 1 cup fat-free milk Dinner Baked salmon on beet greens 4-ounce salmon filet 1 teaspoon olive oil 2 teaspoons lemon juice 1/3 cup cooked beet greens (cooked in 2 tsp. canola oil) Quinoa with almonds 1/2 cup quinoa 1/2 cup silvered almonds 1 cup fat-free milk Snack 1 cup cantaloupe ballsSample menu 2 Breakfast Whole-wheat French toast 2 slices whole-wheat bread 3 tablespoons fat-free milk 2/3 egg 2 teaspoons tub margarine 1 tablespoon pancake syrup 1/2 large grapefruit 1 cup fat-free milk Lunch 3-Bean Vegetarian Chili on Baked Potato 1/4 cup each cooked kidney beans, navy beans, and black beans 1/2 cup tomato sauce 1/4 cup chopped onion 2 tablespoons chopped jalapeno peppers 1 teaspoon corn/canola oil (to cook onion and peppers) 1/4 cup cheese sauce 1 large baked potato 1/2 cup cantaloupe 1 cup water, coffee or tea Dinner Hawaiian pizza See MENUS/ Page G5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEThursday, December 26, 2013 G9 OURTIME G4Thursday, December 26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME Im thinking I might be showing signs of aging. That might be a little hard to believe, but Im pretty sure its true. For starters, youve heard me mention several times before that I just dont pay attention like I used to. The other day I had to go for one of those pesky medical tests. You know, the one where you have to fast for a couple of days and drink a lot of yukky stuff that drains your insides completely. Need I say more? Anyway, when I arrived for the procedure, I was ushered into a small changing room where I was instructed to change into the gown. I tried to listen very intently so that I would get it all right. The instructions were to change into the gown and put my clothes into the locker. That was simple enough. I proceeded to follow instructions and then I noticed a basket of surgical hats lying on the bench. I was trying to follow the instructions to the letter and suddenly was faced with a dilemma. What are those hats doing there? There was no mention of hats. Should I put the hat on before leaving the room? Am I supposed to wear the hat at all? I decided I would be one step ahead and wear the hat. That seemed like a good idea; however, the hat did not fit my head so well. Now what? I decided to take the hat with me and explain to the nurse I would put my hat on after I was in bed. The nurse proceeded to explain what I had in my hand was not a hat. It was a basket of disposable socks in case people forgot to wear/bring their own. Socks! Honestly, they looked like hats! No wonder it didnt fit on my head. The nurse quietly returned the sock to the basket. I did notice she watched me very closely from that moment on. Thank you, Dr. Biks team for taking such good care of the crazy lady with the sock on her head! Seriously, I know I am getting older because Im beginning to repeat myself. A lot. At least my family says I repeat myself a lot. I think it isnt so much that I forget what I say, its that I forget who Ive said it to. You know what I mean? The number of people in our circle grows as we get older and there are so many people who need to know what we have to say and I just cant remember if I told everyone what they need to hear. You know they are hanging on my every word, right? So, my solution for repeating myself is just to give the excuse in the beginning of every conversation. I usually say something like, I cant remember if I told you this or not. Thats good, isnt it? Then the other party doesnt have to feel uncomfortable telling me that Ive repeated myself yet again or, in most cases, just listen to it again and then go tell their friends how much I repeat myself. In short, I repeat myself, but at least I remember what I said. Sometimes. Did I talk to you about this before? Another sign of aging for me is the fact that not one salesperson or hotel clerk ever asks anymore if Im entitled to the senior citizen discount. They just automatically take it off my bill. Maybe its because the senior citizen discount age has been lowered to 55. Maybe? Maybe not? Yes, Im sure thats it. We really arent getting older, we are just more seasoned. Seasoned is good! Happy new year to all and remember, no matter how old we get, laughter is still the best medicine. Mary Alice TillmanLETS TALK Growing seasoned, not older My life: In sickness and healthBy Doris ButtSpecial to the Chronicle My friend Donna told me she knew just the fellow for me. The next time we were at the Coon Hunters Lodge Saturday night dance, she introduced me to Ray. She was correct. The adventurous young teacher and the shy young farmer instantly enjoyed each others company. Opposites do attract. A year later, we married. Two wallflowers got together, as Ray tells it. We decided on a small wedding at Rays church, St. Johns Lutheran, in Napoleon on Dec. 6. I can still visualize us sitting around the kitchen table writing the invitations. We each wrote to those we wanted to invite. I put together a simple white pleated skirt and white blouse. My sister made my veil. Our sisters and brothers-inlaw stood up with us. I always tell I taught the day I got married, but Ray recently reminded me he had worked a full day, too. Although our wedding was modest, my love for flowers prompted an extravagance of six bouquets of white mums among four candelabras and four palms, which made the candlelight service impressive. O Perfect Love, a song in the hymnal, and The Lords Prayer were sung. I remember kneeling at the altar and wondering if The Lords Prayer was ever going to end. Actually, that is my clearest memory of the whole ceremony. The reception was in the church basement. My sister brought the cake her neighbor baked. Mom and a friend made ham salad sandwiches. I wondered if they were made of bologna or real ham. I hope it was ham. Somewhere, there had to have been some punch and potato chips, but I dont remember any. The crowd was small enough to allow Ray and me to visit with our guests who braved a very rainy winter evening. I would consider us rather mature 22-year-olds, but we were still so naive about what love meant that I hardly want to mention it at this stage. Now I realize how little we knew about ourselves, each other and about life. But we came to the marriage with the greatest of confidence in the future. That confidence has been fulfilled in a very happy marriage. Some very serious vows were made that evening. Wilt thou love her, comfort her, honor and keep her in sickness and health and forsaking all others, keep thee only unto her for as long as ye both shall live? For me, one vow has been tested four times with my hip surgeries. It is in sickness and health that most likely comes to meaning in our senior years. It is a vow that has bonded Ray and me more than any in our marriage. Those of you who have been caregivers or receivers of care understand. You have to experience it to know what it is all about. You get in circumstances that can be unimaginable. So many times you just have to hug, cry and especially laugh, sometimes all at once. Getting through it brings a special compassion for each other. Fifty-six years ago, Ray and I said our I dos so innocently. Now we must do for each other and we find we can. And our love grows deeper.

You might not be looking forward to this time of year, since a visit from the IRS is a lot more stressful than a visit from Santa, but your local library offers a selection of resources that can make your tax season a little more manageable. For those of you who are planning to do your own taxes with a trusty pen and paper, we will have some of those vital tax forms you will need. The libraries in Citrus County will be stocked with some of the more popular tax forms and booklets. These paper materials have already been ordered and will be available when the IRS delivers them, so it is wise to continue to check with your local library branch often. These forms and booklets tend to run out eventually, and while we at the library always attempt to order more, time doesnt always allow us to restock. It is a good idea to get your booklets and forms as soon as possible. Nearly all of the tax forms and booklets are available online at IRS.gov. If you know the exact form you are looking for, we can help you navigate IRS.gov to find and print the materials you need. We are also fortunate enough to have representatives from AARP Tax-Aide here from Jan. 30 to April 15 to provide tax help at various branches. Every branch will have different days during which the AARP Tax-Aide volunteers will be available: Tuesdays at Beverly Hills, Wednesdays at Homosassa and Inverness, Thursdays at Crystal River and Fridays at Beverly Hills. Schedule an appointment by calling 211 and then going online to www.citrusunitedway.org/freetax-prep to find and print the form you will need to bring with you to your appointment. The phone number to call is simply 211, and you can begin to schedule appointments as early as Jan. 2. It is wise to schedule an appointment as early as possible, as the free service tends to be in high demand every year. We also have some great text resources in our collection such as the Ernest and Young Tax Guide, along with an assortment of books by J.K. Lasser pertaining to taxes. Some of our most recent and valuable resources are considered reference and therefore cannot be checked out, but dont worry we have plenty of quiet spaces that are perfect for sitting down, cracking open a book and getting the job done. Our public computers are also a great place to get some work done if your computer has gone on the fritz or you need to print a document. Tax season can be a frustrating time of year, but with a little preparation things can go a lot more smoothly. If you are feeling overwhelmed and unprepared, just remember you have friends at your local library that can get you pointed in the right direction.

That might be a little hard to believe, but Im pretty sure its true. For starters, youve heard me mention several times before that I just dont pay attention like I used to. The other day I had to go for one of those pesky medical tests. You know, the one where you have to fast for a couple of days and drink a lot of yukky stuff that drains your insides completely. Need I say more? Anyway, when I arrived for the procedure, I was ushered into a small changing room where I was instructed to change into the gown. I tried to listen very intently so that I would get it all right. The instructions were to change into the gown and put my clothes into the locker. That was simple enough. I proceeded to follow instructions and then I noticed a basket of surgical hats lying on the bench. I was trying to follow the instructions to the letter and suddenly was faced with a dilemma. What are those hats doing there? There was no mention of hats. Should I put the hat on before leaving the room? Am I supposed to wear the hat at all? I decided I would be one step ahead and wear the hat. That seemed like a good idea; however, the hat did not fit my head so well. Now what? I decided to take the hat with me and explain to the nurse I would put my hat on after I was in bed. The nurse proceeded to explain what I had in my hand was not a hat. It was a basket of disposable socks in case people forgot to wear/bring their own. Socks! Honestly, they looked like hats! No wonder it didnt fit on my head. The nurse quietly returned the sock to the basket. I did notice she watched me very closely from that moment on. Thank you, Dr. Biks team for taking such good care of the crazy lady with the sock on her head! Seriously, I know I am getting older because Im beginning to repeat myself. A lot. At least my family says I repeat myself a lot. I think it isnt so much that I forget what I say, its that I forget who Ive said it to. You know what I mean? The number of people in our circle grows as we get older and there are so many people who need to know what we have to say and I just cant remember if I told everyone what they need to hear. You know they are hanging on my every word, right? So, my solution for repeating myself is just to give the excuse in the beginning of every conversation. I usually say something like, I cant remember if I told you this or not. Thats good, isnt it? Then the other party doesnt have to feel uncomfortable telling me that Ive repeated myself yet again or, in most cases, just listen to it again and then go tell their friends how much I repeat myself. In short, I repeat myself, but at least I remember what I said. Sometimes. Did I talk to you about this before? Another sign of aging for me is the fact that not one salesperson or hotel clerk ever asks anymore if Im entitled to the senior citizen discount. They just automatically take it off my bill. Maybe its because the senior citizen discount age has been lowered to 55. Maybe? Maybe not? Yes, Im sure thats it. We really arent getting older, we are just more seasoned. Seasoned is good! Happy new year to all and remember, no matter how old we get, laughter is still the best medicine. Mary Alice TillmanLETS TALK Growing seasoned, not older My life: In sickness and healthBy Doris ButtSpecial to the Chronicle My friend Donna told me she knew just the fellow for me. The next time we were at the Coon Hunters Lodge Saturday night dance, she introduced me to Ray. She was correct. The adventurous young teacher and the shy young farmer instantly enjoyed each others company. Opposites do attract. A year later, we married. Two wallflowers got together, as Ray tells it. We decided on a small wedding at Rays church, St. Johns Lutheran, in Napoleon on Dec. 6. I can still visualize us sitting around the kitchen table writing the invitations. We each wrote to those we wanted to invite. I put together a simple white pleated skirt and white blouse. My sister made my veil. Our sisters and brothers-inlaw stood up with us. I always tell I taught the day I got married, but Ray recently reminded me he had worked a full day, too. Although our wedding was modest, my love for flowers prompted an extravagance of six bouquets of white mums among four candelabras and four palms, which made the candlelight service impressive. O Perfect Love, a song in the hymnal, and The Lords Prayer were sung. I remember kneeling at the altar and wondering if The Lords Prayer was ever going to end. Actually, that is my clearest memory of the whole ceremony. The reception was in the church basement. My sister brought the cake her neighbor baked. Mom and a friend made ham salad sandwiches. I wondered if they were made of bologna or real ham. I hope it was ham. Somewhere, there had to have been some punch and potato chips, but I dont remember any. The crowd was small enough to allow Ray and me to visit with our guests who braved a very rainy winter evening. I would consider us rather mature 22-year-olds, but we were still so naive about what love meant that I hardly want to mention it at this stage. Now I realize how little we knew about ourselves, each other and about life. But we came to the marriage with the greatest of confidence in the future. That confidence has been fulfilled in a very happy marriage. Some very serious vows were made that evening. Wilt thou love her, comfort her, honor and keep her in sickness and health and forsaking all others, keep thee only unto her for as long as ye both shall live? For me, one vow has been tested four times with my hip surgeries. It is in sickness and health that most likely comes to meaning in our senior years. It is a vow that has bonded Ray and me more than any in our marriage. Those of you who have been caregivers or receivers of care understand. You have to experience it to know what it is all about. You get in circumstances that can be unimaginable. So many times you just have to hug, cry and especially laugh, sometimes all at once. Getting through it brings a special compassion for each other. Fifty-six years ago, Ray and I said our I dos so innocently. Now we must do for each other and we find we can. And our love grows deeper.

Is prostate cancer screening right for you?To screen, or not to screen? When it comes to prostate cancer, this is the question men and health care professionals want to answer correctly. But the final decision must be an informed decision, because like most things, the answer is not always a simple yes or no. Cancer screening tests including the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test to look for signs of prostate cancer can be a good idea. Prostate cancer screening can help identify cancer early on, when treatment is most effective. And a normal PSA test, combined with a digital rectal exam, can help reassure you that it's unlikely you have prostate cancer. There are a number of pros and cons to the PSA test. On the positive side, PSA screening may help you detect prostate cancer early, when it is easier to treat and more likely to be cured. On the other hand, PSA tests arent foolproof and can lead to false-positives and sometimes overtreatment of cancers that are slow growing and will never spread beyond the prostate gland. Additionally, a high PSA level does not always mean a man has prostate cancer. PSA levels may be high in men with benign prostate enlargement, prostatitis (an infection) and other common prostate problems. The PSA isnt the only screening tool for prostate cancer. A digital rectal examination (DRE) should always be done with a PSA test when screening for prostate cancer. A DRE is a handson exam in which a doctor feels the prostate for bumps or abnormalities. The thought of this is likely uncomfortable, but it is a quick, safe and easy test that minimizes the risk of missing prostate cancer or wrongly identifying a benign prostate abnormality as cancer. Knowing the risk factors for prostate cancer can help you decide if and when you want to begin prostate cancer screening. Older men, African-American men and men who have a family history or prostate cancer have a greater risk of developing prostate cancer. Most prostate cancer is found in men age 65 or older. To screen, or not to screen? In the end, the answer is up to you. For some men, a positive PSA test can be a lifesaver. Its generally a good idea to have a PSA and DRE if you are at increased risk of prostate cancer. But not all men need to be screened. Consider the pros and cons of screening, your age, general health and risk factors. Talk with health care professionals who have your best interest in mind.

WE ARE WE ARE HERE HERE TO HELP TO HELP Dear Margaret: My husband and I have been married for 57 years and currently live alone. He is a retired Army Colonel. We are experiencing declining health and he has been diagnosed with dementia. I have been thinking about assisted living, but because of the economy, I am worried we will run out of money The Colonels Wife Dear Colonels Wife: In todays economy, everyone is worried about making their money last and having enough to take care of themselves. When looking at the cost of assisted living versus living in your own home, there are a lot of factors you should consider, plus with your husbands diagnosis of dementia, there are certain safety factors that you will need to think about too. Your home expenses, even if your home is paid for, add up, especially when you factor in your utilities, food, insurance and taxes on your home, upkeep and insurance for your automobile, lawn care, home repairs or hired help to assist you and your husband with your personal needs. When moving into assisted living, we provide you with safe, secure, worry free living by providing 24 hour a day/7 day a week, care, 3 meals a day with snacks, utilities, transportation, a full activities program, housekeeping and maintenance. As a veteran, you and your husband may qualify for the VA Aid and Attendance Pension that helps the veteran and his/her spouse with the cost of assisted living services. The pension will also help widows and widowers. Contact your local VA benefits office for more information on this pension. I am sure that Assisted Living Services are much more affordable than you expect. Come and join us for a tour of Superior Residences of Lecanto to learn more.

G12Thursday, December 26, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE OURTIME OURTIME Discovering the joy of retirementJanuary 20134SilverSneakers classes keep seniors in shape................Page G6Age-friendly phones help seniors stay in touchDear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some good age-friendly home telephones for elderly seniors? My 82-year-old mother has a difficult time hearing over the phone and her vision and memory arent so great either. Shopping Son Dear Shopping, There are literally dozens of different types and styles of agefriendly phones on the market today to help seniors with a variety of challenges like hearing loss, low vision, memory problems and limited mobility.How to chooseTo help you select a good agefriendly phone for your mom, you need to take into account her specific needs and wants because there are lots of options to choose from. For example, for seniors with hearing loss there are amplified telephones, both corded and cordless, to provide various levels of amplification usually ranging from 25 decibels (dB) up to around 55 dB, with some offering tone adjustments for high-frequency hearing loss. Most amplified phones are also hearing-aid compatible and come with extraloud ringers and bright ring flashers to indicate incoming calls. Most amplified phones also come with big buttons and a lighted keypad that make them easier to see and easier to operate for seniors with hand tremors or dexterity problems. Some phones even offer talk back buttons that speak the number as you dial. If remembering is a problem, you may want you consider a photo phone for your mom that lets you insert pictures of family members or friends over preprogrammed buttons, so she can simply press the picture of the person she wants to call and theyre automatically dialed. Emergency alert phones are another option to consider, especially for elderly seniors who live alone. These phones come with a neck pendant or wristband (SOS button) that your mom would wear, so if she falls down and cant get up, she can press it and the phones preprogrammed emergency numbers will automatically be dialed. If mobility is an issue, there are speaker phones you can purchase that will let your mom activate the phone with her voice. And since telemarketing fraud is so common among the elderly, many age-friendly phones have built in caller IDs so she can identify whos calling before she picks up. Some phones even offer outgoing speech amplification for seniors with weak, difficult-to-hear speaking voices.Where to shopWhile there are many companies that make and sell age-friendly telephones, the leading suppliers in the industry are Clarity (clarity products.com), ClearSounds (clear sounds.com), Serene Innovations (sereneinnovations.com), Geemarc (geemarc.com) and VTech (vtechphones.com). To find these and other models, visit their respective websites, or try assistive hearing sites like harriscomm.com, teltex.com and soundbytes.com. Prices typically range from $30 up to around $300.Free phonesAnother option you should check into is state-funded specialized telecommunications equipment programs, which are available in 47 states. If your moms state has a program, you may be able to get her an amplified telephone for free. Captioned phonesIf your mom has severe hearing loss, another option you should know about is captioned telephones that have a built-in display window that would let your mom listen to the caller, as well as read written, word-for-word captions of everything the caller is saying. Options available include: CapTel (captel.com) sold through Weitbrecht Communications Inc. for $75, however many states have programs that offer them for free to residents in need; the popular new Clarity Ensemble that sells for $75 through clarityproducts.com; and the $75 CaptionCall at captioncall.com.
