QUESTION OF THE WEEK Meredith Linley Its such a shame the county wouldnt work with Mike Hampton years ago when he proposed to build and donate something like this to the area.

You have to decide if the added cost is worth the entertainment, jobs, traffic, additional taxes, etc. Cassie Durham Put it where the mall is. Im all for good sustainable development here in Citrus County, but not at the cost of more of our forests being leveled out. A prosperous economy should not mean the (destruction) of our natural resources. especially an economy based on tourism, the attraction our springs and rivers, fishing, hunting, etc. ...

Banking on community CUB director committed to her careerNANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Last Monday, Citrus United Basket executive director Jenna Campbell had her hands full. She and her team of staff members and volunteers had just finished a whirlwind four days of the annual Christmas toys distribution to more than 350 local families when 53 last-minute parents came in for toys for their kids. So, on Monday Campbell and a skeleton crew worked tirelessly to meet the needs of the people who had turned to CUB for help including handling some short tempers before a fist fight broke out. By Christmas Eve, CUB had served 412 families with more than 7,000 toys, and 664 families with food for a holiday meal. Her job is hectic, heartwarming and at times heartbreaking, but one that Campbell says she loves. In todays Monday Conversation, Jenna Campbell, 48, talks about CUB and why she considers her position there as more than a job.CHRONICLE: This was your first Christmas as executive director, but not your first rodeo, right? CAMPBELL: Right. I took over as director in June (when Deborah Rossfeld retired). Prior to that, I was assistant director since October 2012. Before that I was a hairdresser working in The Villages. CHRONICLE: Why CUB? CAMPBELL: I live in MondayCONVERSATION See MONDAY/ Page A11 Year inREVIEW Thats gotta hurt: Crane comes to humans for help CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS Its rare for wildlife to ask for medical aid. But last week a sandhill crane seemed to know that trusting a non-feathered friend would be his best bet for survival. The sandhill crane stuck by Fred constantly as if he knew Fred wouldhelp, said Inverness resident Marilyn Pruter, describing how a three-and-a-half-feet tall migratory bird walked up to her husband and showed him his injured beak. Eight-year residents, the Pruters have built a friendship with their neighbors, a clan of sandhill cranes. The Pruters watch them nest, raise their chicks and glean insects from the neighborhood lawns. The relationship was strengthened last summer, when Fred Pruter helped a sandhill crane that had an injured wing. Not only were the Pruters watching the birds, the cranes watched them in return. They started coming in and looking at us and going through the yard, Marilyn Pruter said. My husband always talked to them. The cranes must have been listening. The other day, there were about 12 sandhill cranes out in the middle of the street, yelling and screaming, Marilyn Pruter said. My husband heard them and he went out the front door and walked around the sidewalk and behind my car was this bird with a broken beak. It went instantly to his side. The crane hung in close to Fred Pruter. If Fred went toward the backyard fence, he went that way, Marilyn Pruter said. If Fred went into the garage, he followed him in. Marilyn Pruter called Nature World Wild life Rescue in Homo sassa, whose volunteers rescue, rehabilitate and release injured or orphaned wildlife. The rescue group was established in MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileCrystal River High School Navy JROTC members Schyler Powers, 15, and Daniel MacRae, 15, maneuver a kayak full of Lygnbya algae last May during a cleanup that saw dozens of NJROTC members from the school assist in the cleanup effort. Volunteers from across the county as well as many from other states have assisted in the One Rake at a Time cleanup of Kings Bay. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThe recent completion of Phase 1 of the algae cleanup at Cedar Cove in Kings Bay is perhaps a fitting cap to a year characterized by an infusion of cash and projects for the restoration of the bay. It also has been the year when the mechanical harvester intended for use against the filamentous algae called Lyngbya went silent. Art Jones and the Kings Bay Rotary Club, which began the cleanup effort in the bay some two-plus years ago, has watched the project mushroom as a model for others and brought together an army of dedicated volunteers. The Crystal River Rotary Club and Save Crystal River Inc. have joined Jones in his efforts. A $52,000 grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was used to rake up more than 193tons of Lyngbya from the Cedar Cove area. Earlier this year, Gov. Rick Scott earmarked $37million in spring cleanup around the state. Three million of that amount is going to projects such as the eel grass restoration project in the Hunter Springs area and the reclaimed water pipeline to the Duke Energy power complex. For the Cedar Cove project, Jones hired homeless people affiliated with the Missions in Citrus to do the work, which he said offered them some employment while cleaning up the bay simultaneously. Hand-raking delivers, gets cash MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCitrus County has a tourism director, but not the one it started the year with and not who officials thought they wanted. Hoping to beef up the countys tourism efforts, the Tourist Development Council decided late last year to post for the position of executive director. County officials posted the $80,000-a-year job, received about 100 applicants, and had begun some interviewing. In June, they decided to redirect the position to focus more on sports tourism. The job description was redrafted and the job posted once again.

Vincent DAgostino was among 147 students across the nation chosen this past fall to intern at the White House in Washington, D.C. The White House Internship Program provides a unique opportunity to gain valuable professional experience and build leadership skills. This hands-on program is designed to mentor and cultivate todays young leaders, strengthen their understanding of the executive office and prepare them for future public service opportunities, said the White House Internship Program website. DAgostino, who lives in Tampa, graduated from Flagler College, worked for Key Pine Village, served in the Peace Corps in Swaziland, Africa, worked at Hospice in St. Petersburg and graduated from Stetson University College of Law. However, he was determined to add another qualification to his rsum an unpaid, three-month White House internship. Think big, he said. Its easy when you come from a small county to think this is all there is. Be persistent, as I applied many of times and was finally accepted, he advised. In mid-August, DAgostino received word that his application was accepted out of 10,000 applicants and he was to report to the White House on Sept. 3 for work. I worked in the office of the National AIDS Policy, which was under the Domestic Policy Council, DAgostino said. I did a lot of research, writing and factchecking. I would get emails asking me to see if information was correct because they might have been issuing a statement or making a speech. They wanted to make sure all information was correct or not misleading. From 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., DAgostino spent three months getting to know the United States government at a level that many citizens do not have the opportunity to do. I was surrounded by intellectually stimulating people who work hard, long hours and dont stop until the work is done, he said. They really care about the work that they are doing. We really do have some of the brightest people working at that level from different backgrounds of life. Some of his highlights were assisting in the World AIDS Day event, decorating the White House for Halloween, pulling weeds in the White House garden, running a PowerPoint presentation for President Barack Obama and shaking his hand and meeting the first lady. I complimented her on being the bestdressed first lady of all time, he said. And then I asked her what her motivation was for getting up in the morning and working out. She basically said, The job requires a lot of a person and stamina to do it. I have to make healthy choices and exercise so that I can keep up with the job, my two girls and two dogs. Not only did he help decorate the White House for Halloween, but he witnessed the Christmas spirit. The one thing I remember when I walked through the White House was that I smelled fresh pine everywhere, he said. DAgostinos internship was interrupted by the three-week government shutdown and he was offered an additional month in the spring to continue his experience. However, he felt it was not financially feasible and returned home Dec. 13. Nonetheless, he counts his many blessings. I made a lot of connections and hope to build upon those relationships that were formed, DAgostino said. The bar exam in February is his next adventure and he hopes to work for a judge doing a federal clerkship. To follow his adventures, find him on Twitter at @mycuzzinvinni.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or email@example.com.

In 1972, the United States halted its heavy bombing of North Vietnam. In 1993, Israel and the Vatican agreed to recognize each other. In 2006, Iraqis awoke to news that Saddam Hussein had been hanged; victims of his three decades of rule took to the streets to celebrate.

The Warner Bros. prequel earned $30 million, bringing the domestic gross to $190.3million, according to studio estimates on Sunday. Disneys animated adventure, Frozen, took the No. 2 position, earning $28.9 million over the weekend and $248.4million domestically after six weeks. Frozen probably had the best release date of the year because they positioned themselves to completely dominate the family film marketplace over the holidays, said box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian of Rentrak. To be No. 2 in its sixth week is a total reflection of that. Reigning box-office champion Hobbit, really contributed to this record box office that we have at the end of the year, he added. With Hobbit and Frozen, we are talking $450 million at the box office between those two films alone. They are absolutely killing it here at the end of the year. This year is poised to be a banner one at the box office, and it is projected to surpass 2012s $10.8billion by nearly 1percent, making this the highest annual take ever. Paramount held two slots in the top five over the weekend, with the comedies Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, starring Will Farrell, and The Wolf of Wall Street, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio. Sequel Anchorman 2 came in at No. 3 with $20.2 million, and Martin Scorseses dark comedy, The Wolf of Wall Street, took the No. 5 spot, earning $19 million after opening at No. 2 on Christmas Day with $9.15 million. Oscar hopeful Saving Mr. Banks, Disneys making of Mary Poppins story, starring Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks, came in at No. 6, making $14.3 million. And despite lackluster reviews, Keanu Reeves martial-arts film Ronin managed to slide into the top 10 at No. 9 with $9.9 million in its opening weekend. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday: 1.The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, $30 million ($98.3 million international). 2.Frozen, $28.9 million ($50.5 million international). 3.Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, $20.2 million ($8 million international). 4.American Hustle, $19.6 million ($1.7 million international). 5.The Wolf of Wall Street, $19 million ($6.5 million international). 6.Saving Mr. Banks, $14.3 million ($300,000 international). 7.The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, $13 million ($27.2 million international). 8.The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, $10.2 million ($9 million international). 9.

Associated PressWARSAW, Poland Wojciech Kilar, a Polish pianist and composer of classical music and scores for many films, including Roman Polanskis Oscar-winning The Pianist and Francis Ford Coppolas Bram Stokers Dracula, died Sunday. He was 81. The composer died in his hometown of Katowice, southern Poland, following a long illness, according to Jerzy Kornowicz, head of the Association of Polish Composers. The power and the message of his music, as well as the noble character of Wojciech Kilar as a person, will stay in my memory forever, said Kornowicz. A modest man who often avoided public attention, Kilars main love was composing symphonies and concertos, and he always put that above movies, even though he wrote the scores of dozens of films. He drew inspiration from Polish folk music and religious prayers and hymns, which he had learned in Latin as an altar boy. His wife of over 40 years, Barbara, died in 2007. They had no children. Kilar will be buried in Katowice on Saturday in a ceremony starting with a Mass at the Arch Cathedral of Christ the King. LifeSouth bloodmobile schedule for January.

1985 by the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park and Midway Animal Hospital and has treated more than 10,000 wildlife cases. A rescue staff member told the Pruters that someone else had called about the crane. When they tried to capture it, it flew off, Marilyn Pruter said. Whether he trusted Fred Pruter or was just exhausted, the crane stayed in the Pruters garage until rescue staff arrived and removed him. I called the next morning to see how the bird was and she said the bird arrived but didnt have the upper bill, Marilyn Pruter said. It must have broken off. The rescuers arranged for Sea World to take the crane for treatment. As the bird could drink water, was in good health and could live for seven days without food, it was a good candidate to be fitted with a prosthetic beak. The bird is being fed via a feeding tube. Marilyn Pruter said she thought the bird might have injured its beak during the current sandhill crane mating season, which extends from December to June, according to the U.S. Department of the Interior. The species performs a courtship ritual of a series of dances while making calls. According to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources: The dance looks like two marionette puppets frolicking delicately on strings. They alternately bow and leap into the air with wings stretched out as they circle each other. After the birds dance, they build their nest. He must have got attacked, Marilyn Pruter said. Last year, they laid the nest about 30 feet from our fence. It was Jan. 13. So we know its mating season. They do fight with their bills. The crane has been named Big Sweetie. After he has been rehabilitated with his new beak, he will be reunited with his crane clan in the Pruters neighborhood. choices. However, in October the TDC ended up picking a last-minute applicant, Robert Bob Marx, a Kissimmee consultant whose experience included hotel manager and tourism director. The job offer was $75,000 annually, with a potential bump to $80,000 after six months on the job. Marx asked for the salary hike after three months, and also requested more than $4,000 in expenses to move his furniture from a storage unit in Chicago. He also asked for 45 free nights of accommodations in Citrus County to give him time to find permanent residence. County officials denied all the requests. They made the job offer, Marx accepted, and he was set to be presented to the county commission on Nov. 5. Before that happened, however, the Chroniclereported that Marx had exaggerated on his rsum times spent in two similar positions. County officials acknowledged they had not thoroughly checked his rsum and, days after theChroniclereport, they withdrew their offer to Marx. Rather than continue searching for an executive director, the county replaced Marla Chancey, who was director of the countys Visitors and Convention Bureau since 2008. She was transferred to the position of sports coordinator at the Division of Parks and Recreation and Adam Thomas, who had the sports position since April, was made interim director of tourism. Assistant County Administrator Cathy Pearson said the position will be reevaluated after six months.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. Jones recently announced that work has started on the volunteer-driven hand-raking after the project got another award for $100,000 from the Department of Environmental Protection. The money is part of the general appropriations act of 201314 providing grant assistance through the Beaches and Mines funding. State Sen. Charlie Dean, RInverness, who has championed Jones cause and springs cleanup in the Legislature, invited Jones to come before his Senate environmental preservation committee earlier in the year to make his case. Crystal River Mayor Jim Farley also spoke at the hearing in support of Jones efforts and state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, RInverness, lent his support to an appropriation in the Florida House. Jones said the hand-raking work will continue until June30, 2014, or until the money is exhausted. Jones is already angling for more grants when the Legislature convenes for its budget session in spring. Meanwhile, the joint effort of Save Crystal River Inc., and One Rake at a Time to use mechanical harvesting to remove Lyngbya in greater volume kicked up a lot of turmoil and caused the effort to be suspended. A big harvester was observed causing a lot of turbidity, or cloudiness, by its operator, a company from the Orlando area. Pat Rose of Save the Manatee Club protested the operation of the harvester and said what was being done amounted to dredging the bays sandy bottom. He challenged Save Crystal River Inc.s permit, which he said was for Lyngbya removal and not dredging; and, he insisted a monitoring process be instituted before harvesting resumes. Save Crystal River and Rose then seemed to have worked out a deal, but Save Crystal River later said the deal was too onerous and it cant successfully execute the intended clean-up under those terms. Steve Lamb of Save Crystal River Inc. later said ties with the harvester company have been severed and that the future of an effective cleanup of the bay is with use of environmentally friendly vacuum systems. Lamb said his group is working to make that happen. Meanwhile, hand-raking continues as the two sides figure out the best environmentally sensitive form of mechanized removal of Lyngbya from Kings Bay.

Page A10MONDAY, DECEMBER 30, 2013 Concerned about fire safetyTaxpayers in Citrus County, please read this! Its all true and, if you too are getting tired of the people who are running our county, it might be time to make a change. What we really need is a county government that works for us and not for themselves. For those who do not want to pay the new fire tax, go visit a few fire stations. See how fire personnel live and see the outdated equipment, from boots and bunkers to the actual fire trucks still in service that they have to use. How many firemen are actually on duty? How many firefighters would you want on the trucks responding to your fire? The IAF (International Association of Firefighters) strongly suggests three, not two or just one, which is often the case. In Lecanto, their favorite excuse for losing a home or other structure is lack of water. Where are the tankers that can carry enough water to give adequate time to set up portable ponds or relays? Because we enjoy country living, does that mean we have to lose everything we own if we experience a fire? Our station has one truck, one volunteer, no paid firemen. When I called in to a TV show featuring our sheriff/fire chief and asked about paid firefighters in Lecanto, the sheriff responded, I cant see it in the future. Do you realize that those of us who live in southern Lecanto are apparently second rate, although we, too, pay taxes? As a matter of fact, my recent property tax bill itemized the $54 new fire tax in addition to a $36.07 fee for our fire district. My math might be a bit rusty, but that sounds like a little over $90 to me. And for what? To potentially lose everything? As a retired volunteer fireman with 20-plus years of experience, I find this terribly frustrating. What can we do? We can vote! Vote out those who are more interested in their own toys than they are our safety. Vote for someone who actually has fire experience! We had an ideal candidate last election, but the brainwashed good ole boys voted to keep the status quo.Richard G. Fontaine LecantoGood money after badI recently read a letter by a local who was complaining, rightfully so, about the fee for parking at the Chassahowitzka boat ramp parking lot. Now notice if you will that I said a parking fee. Yes you can launch your boat at no extra tax, but sorry you need to pay $7 to park. Huh? I dont know about you, but when the county I live in spends county money to improve a ramp, which wasnt chump change, over $300,000 I recall, wastefully spending money on a kayak launch closet. No one uses it, for two reasons. First of all, it didnt work. It was like trying to launch a kayak in a closet. The second reason is they knocked down the original wall and made a beach area, which is not only easier to launch a kayak but is a lot nicer at a fraction of the cost of that concrete closet they built, and now it doesnt even get used because people use the beach, which by the way was originally proposed in the improvement plans. I guess its typical government spending, maybe they couldve saved some money by talking to the community that lives there and seen that a beach area to launch paddled vessels from was all that was needed. Now, not only has the county wasted money on this ugly hunk of concrete that no one uses, they expect me to pay for parking! Hello? How do you think Im going to get the boat to the ramp? I need a place to park. So today I find that the county was sent out there to trim trees at the campground because campers and RVs were hitting them. Am I out of line by asking why? I used to buy my provisions for the boat trip and pay your double taxing fee for parking, but not anymore. Thankfully, Im blessed I have a friend who allows me to park in his yard. So I launch my boat, drive to my friends place, park my truck and peddle my bike around and park it in the bike rack. Not only do I not pay for parking, but I refuse to purchase anything from the store. Im waiting for a fee to park my bike, guess Ill just walk. Ron Hobbs Homosassa Admittedly, my idea of celebrating New Years Day is indoors and asleep at least until the sun is almost directly above the Atlantic Ocean, a couple of miles from home. A national push to get people outdoors on Jan. 1 to enjoy nature, promote healthy lifestyles and, in places like St. Augustine, history, too, is in its third year. Americas State Parks First Day Hike encourages people to start the New Year by taking a hike and there are fewer areas nicer than a state park. National organizers said 22,022 hikers logged a total of 43,911 miles on Jan. 1, 2013, during 721 hikes that ranged from one mile to 9 miles, round-trip, in the nations state parks. Floridas state parks are part of First Day Hike, big time. You can find out whats going on near you by checking the listing at www.floridastateparks.org/ thingstodo/events.cfm. If you want a special First Day Hike, head over Fort Mose Historic State Park, north of St. Augustine off U.S. 1 by the replica city gates. The hike is only six-tenths of a mile round trip. Park Specialist Tonya Creamer and State Park Rangers will incorporate the story of 18th century Fort Mose into the natural setting along Robinson Creek. There is no sign of the first or the second forts today, but participants will get the lay of the land along a boardwalk through the marsh. Its a behind-thescenes kind of tour. The story is impressive. Fort Mose, officially known as El Pueblo de Gracia Real de Santa Teresa de Mose, was founded by the Spanish in 1738 as the first legally sanctioned, free African settlement in what is now the United States. African slaves who fled the British colonies were given their freedom in return for joining the Spanish militia and for converting to Catholicism. Fort Moses hike is a timely adventure, as 2014 is the official start of the city of St. Augustines remembrance of the Civil Rights Era. Fort Mose predates the 1964 demonstrations by more than 200 years, but, its story is a pivotal part of Civil Rights history. Deadline for the First Dau Hike was Dec. 24, but dont despair theres a special Experience Fort Mose event from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, with volunteers dressed in period costume to present living history. Call 904-823-2232 for more information. Get prepping now. People who are desk-bound know the drill; get up and walk for five minutes out of every hour at the desk. People who dont work should set their alarms for taking five out of 60. Challenge yourself by wearing a pedometer and working up to 10,000 steps daily. If you cannot make it over St. Augustine, find a park near you and take a hike. Margo C. Pope is a former opinion page editor of The St. Augustine Record.

Seeking to shake things up at the Citrus County Visitors and Convention Bureau, top county administrators moved the tourism director into the Parks and Rec sports coordinator position and tapped the sports coordinator to become interim tourism director. In his previous job as sports coordinator, Adam Thomas earned praise for his sports expertise and enthusiasm. While his experience in the area of tourism development is said to be limited, the Tourist Development Council and county commission seemed determined to bring change to the Visitors and Convention Bureau, so this could be a great opportunity for Thomas to prove his mettle. While the TDCs funding comes from a tax on overnight stays from those visiting the county, it is the county administrator who makes the ultimate decision about who to employ as director; its not the TDCs decision. The director, however, has the tricky job of meeting the expectations of the administrator and, indirectly, the TDC and county commission. It was bad form for the county administrator to make the job switch while the nowformer tourism director was on vacation. Since they value her enough to continue employing her, it would have been nice to have a consultation before making the announcement to the Tourist Development Council. Be that as it may, the winds of change have been blowing. Now the trick for the TDC and county government is to set a course for the director. If clear objectives arent set, with benchmarks to evaluate progress, the new director will be left to flounder. With the new director in place, county government and TDC officials would be wise to start the new year by agreeing goals and performance measures to enable Adam Thomas to succeed.

FOSTER SUCCESS Margot PopeOTHER VOICES
Citrus County, go to church in Citrus County, my kids all went to school here. Plus, I wasnt loving doing hair anymore. I also felt that God was calling me to do something different, to serve on a deeper level. I found this job on the Internet while searching food pantries in the area. CHRONICLE: What did you know about CUB? CAMPBELL: CUB actually helped me back in 2003 when I was going through a divorce and had four kids and no money. I couldnt pay my bills and came here for help with my electric bill. CHRONICLE: What was that like? CAMPBELL: Being broke and broken? Its horrible. Ive been on the other side of this desk. Ive experienced the consequences of some very bad decisions and very bad life choices. Back then, I wasnt in a very good place at all. CHRONICLE: How did you get from there to here? CAMPBELL: The grace of God and strong mentoring. I had a close friend that helped guide me and get me back on my feet, plus a lot of hard work and understanding about my mistakes and learning to make different choices. One of the things I would really like to do here is create a program where we can provide education and mentoring for people who are upside down in their budgeting. I was 42 years old when I found out that only 25percent of your income should go to your rent. ... My whole life, I just winged it. So, Id like to somehow incorporate financial literacy into what we offer. CHRONICLE: For people who may not know, what exactly does CUB do? CAMPBELL: We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community-based charity. Our motto is, People helping people, and thats what we do. We provide financial assistance when funds are available for utilities, rent, water, propane, prescription meds if they fall under certain criteria. We also run a food pantry. ... But our assistance is not meant to be permanent. Were set up to help Citrus County residents who are facing temporary hardships. CHRONICLE: How many families do you serve? CAMPBELL: We average 500 families a month for food in the food pantry and probably 150 to 175 a month for financial assistance. We serve about 25,000 individuals a year. CHRONICLE: Are the numbers going up? CAMPBELL: They are. For Christmas, we did almost 100 more families than the year before, and our food numbers are up, too. It ebbs and flows, depending on the time of year. We also know that there are other agencies that have programs kicking in, like the countys LIHEAP (Low Income Housing Energy Assistance Program) that starts in January for help with utility bills. Right now our pantry is stocked, which will carry us through the tough months when people arent thinking about those in need. CHRONICLE: You used the term those in need and not needy as some people say. Whats the difference? CAMPBELL: To me, theres an element of judgment in the word needy, and we want to maintain peoples dignity and treat people like people. Our client base is such a broad spectrum. There are so many reasons that people are here theyve lost a job, theyre going through a divorce, a daughter and her kids had to move back home and suddenly there are more mouths to feed. I dont know anyone who hasnt gone through some kind of sticky situation where they need help. We all have needs at some time. CHRONICLE: Lets change gears and talk about 2014. What are your goals? CAMPBELL: Heres some news were going to be building on our property on U.S. 41 across from Inverness Middle School in 2014. Were hoping to break ground the end of January and open by July. It will almost double the space we have here. CHRONICLE: You said you love your job. What do you like best? CAMPBELL: It gives me an opportunity to serve the community, to pay it forward. My pastor talks about being salt and light, and this is an opportunity to be just that. The light doesnt need to go where its already light; it needs to go where its dark, and salt doesnt need to go where its fresh and cheery all the time, but where theres decay. I believe Im where God wants me to be and I think I learn and grow every day and I work with amazing people, volunteers and staff who show up with smiles on their faces and who dont complain and who help keep me from complaining. Were stewards of the goodwill of the community in every aspect of what we do. The churches and individuals and clubs and businesses that donate to us throughout the year trust us to do what weve been doing for 35, going into our 36th year. Its very humbling that I get to serve in this position. CHRONICLE: I like what you said about being stewards of the goodwill of the community. CAMPBELL: We dont get any government money; everything we do here is because of the generosity of the community, which is awesome because when people find out that we need something, it happens. We had a refrigerator crisis the week before Christmas. The refrigerator in the pantry and the one in the volunteers room went out, and within a week we had threerefrigerators donated to us. Now we have an extra one, which well need when we move into our new building because the food pantry will be much bigger. Citrus United Basket is at 103 N. Mill Ave., Inverness. Phone: 352-344-2242.

Caught Associated PressThis photo provided by the Pueblo County, Colo., Sheriff's Department shows Harry Carl Mapps. Authorities say the man suspected of killing three people and setting fire to a home in southern Colorado was captured in Oklahoma after a nationwide manhunt on Saturday. FBI: Cell records link robberiesPHOENIX A suspect killed by Phoenix police in a bank robbery attempt is believed to be the same man accused in the shooting death of a Mississippi police officer and the wounding of another, the FBI said Sunday. The statement came hours after Phoenix police shot and killed a suspect after Saturdays bank robbery attempt. Investigators believe the same suspect also tried to rob a bank in Atlanta on Monday, hours before he allegedly shot the two officers in Tupelo, Miss. Phoenix police spokesman James Holmes said Sunday that it was unclear when Mario Edward Garnett arrived in the state. He said Garnett was from the Midwest, had served for four years in the U.S. Army and appeared to have no connections to Arizona. Daniel McMullen, special agent in charge of the FBIs office in Jackson, Miss., said records showed the suspects cellphone was in Atlanta, Phoenix and Tupelo at the time of each incident. McMullen also said there were numerous similarities between the three bank robberies, including the clothing worn by the suspect, statements he made during the incidents and his overall modus operandi. Time short to find new facility OAKLAND, Calif. The family of a California girl declared brain dead after complications from tonsil surgery was running out of time Sunday to find a new facility to take her in and keep her on a ventilator. A judges ruling will allow Childrens Hospital Oakland to remove 13-year-old Jahi McMath from life support at 5p.m. today unless her family appeals. The family is now pinning its hopes on a New York facility after two California care homes withdrew offers to accept the teen. Chris Dolan, the familys attorney, said he was waiting to hear from the New York hospital after its facility director and medical director speak. He wouldnt provide the hospitals name, saying the media attention could hurt Jahis chance of being transferred there. On Sunday, the hospital said it had not heard from the New York, or any other, facility about a transfer. We need to be able to talk to the other facility to understand what it is they are capable of doing, Cynthia Chiarappa, a hospital spokeswoman, said.

Peacekeepers killed in SudanCAIRO The United Nations said two peacekeepers have been killed while in Sudans South Darfur region. A statement Sunday on behalf of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said a Jordanian and a Senegalese peacekeeper were killed by unidentified assailants while in a convoy traveling near Greida, South Darfur. The statement said peacekeepers killed one of the assailants and wounded another. Darfur has been gripped by bloodshed since 2003 when rebels took up arms against the government in Khartoum, accusing it of discrimination and neglect. The United Nations said 300,000 people have died in the conflict and 2.7million have fled their homes. The U.N. said some 125 troops have been killed in the Darfur peacekeeping mission.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Bombing in Russia Associated PressA police officer guards a main entrance to the Volgograd railway station Sunday, hit by an explosion, in Volgograd, Russia. More than a dozen people were killed and scores were wounded Sunday by a suicide bomber at a railway station in southern Russia, officials said, heightening concern about terrorism ahead of Februarys Olympics in the Black Sea resort of Sochi. 16 killed in suicide attack in southern city of Volgograd Associated PressMOSCOW A suicide bomber struck a busy railway station in southern Russia on Sunday, killing at least 15 other people and wounding scores more, officials said, in a stark reminder of the threat Russia is facing as it prepares to host Februarys Olympics in Sochi. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the bombing in Volgograd, but it came several months after Chechen rebel leader Doku Umarov called for new attacks against civilian targets in Russia, including the Sochi Games. Suicide bombings have rocked Russia for years, but many have been contained to the North Caucasus, the center of an insurgency seeking an Islamist state in the region. Until recently Volgograd was not a typical target, but the city formerly known as Stalingrad has now been struck twice in two months suggesting militants may be using the transportation hub as a renewed way of showing their reach outside their restive region. Volgograd, which lies close to volatile Caucasus provinces, is 550 miles south of Moscow and about 400 miles northeast of Sochi, a Black Sea resort flanked by the North Caucasus Mountains. The bombing highlights the daunting security challenge Russia will face in fulfilling its pledge to make the Sochi Games the safest Olympics in history. The government has deployed tens of thousands of soldiers, police and other security personnel to protect the games. Through the day, officials issued conflicting statements on casualties. They also said the suspected bomber was a woman, but then reversed themselves and said the attacker could have been a man. The Interfax news agency quoted unidentified law enforcement agents as saying that footage taken by surveillance cameras indicated that the bomber was a man. It also reported that it was further proven by a torn male finger ringed by a safety pin removed from a hand grenade, which was found on the site of the explosion. The bomber detonated explosives in front of a metal detector just beyond the stations main entrance when a police sergeant became suspicious and rushed forward to check ID, officials said. The officer was killed by the blast, and several other policemen were wounded. When the suicide bomber saw a policeman near a metal detector, she became nervous and set off her explosive device, Vladimir Markin, the spokesman for the nations top investigative agency, said in a statement earlier in the day. He added that the bomb contained about 22 pounds of TNT and was rigged with shrapnel. Markin later told Interfax that the attacker could have been a man, but added that the investigation was still ongoing. He said another hand grenade, which didnt explode, was also found on the explosion site. Markin argued that security controls prevented a far greater number of casualties at the station, which was packed with people at a time when several trains were delayed. About 40 were hospitalized, many in grave condition. Earlier, Lifenews.ru, a Russian news portal that reportedly has close links to security agencies, even posted what it claimed was an image of the severed head of the females attacker. It even said the attacker appeared to have been a woman whose two successive rebel husbands had been killed by Russian security forces in the Caucasus. Female suicide bombers, many of whom were widows or sisters of rebels, have mounted numerous attacks in Russia. They often have been referred to as black widows. In October, a female suicide bomber blew herself up on a city bus in Volgograd, killing six people and injuring about 30. Officials said that attacker came from the province of Dagestan, which has become the center of the Islamist insurgency that has spread across the region after two separatist wars in Chechnya. As in Sundays blast, her bomb was rigged with shrapnel that caused severe injuries. RUSSIA UKRAINE BEL.

Report: NSA intercepts computer deliveries Associated PressLONDON A German magazine lifted the lid on the operations of the National Security Agencys hacking unit Sunday, reporting that American spies intercept computer deliveries, exploit hardware vulnerabilities, and even hijack Microsofts internal reporting system to spy on their targets. Der Spiegels revelations relate to a division of the NSA known as Tailored Access Operations, or TAO, which is painted as an elite team of hackers specializing in stealing data from the toughest of targets. Citing internal NSA documents, the magazine said Sunday that TAOs mission was Getting the ungettable, and quoted an unnamed intelligence official as saying that TAO had gathered some of the most significant intelligence our country has ever seen. Der Spiegel said TAO had a catalog of high-tech gadgets for particularly hard-to-crack cases, including computer monitor cables specially modified to record what is being typed across the screen, USB sticks secretly fitted with radio transmitters to broadcast stolen data over the airwaves, and fake base stations intended to intercept mobile phone signals on the go. The NSA doesnt just rely on James Bond-style spy gear, the magazine said. Some of the attacks described by Der Spiegel exploit weaknesses in the architecture of the Internet to deliver malicious software to specific computers. Others take advantage of weaknesses in hardware or software distributed by some of the worlds leading information technology companies, including Cisco Systems Inc. and Chinas Huawei Technologies Ltd., the magazine reported. Der Spiegel cited a 2008 mail order catalog-style list of vulnerabilities that NSA spies could exploit from companies such as Irvine, California-based Western Digital Corp. or Round Rock, Texas-based Dell Inc. The magazine said that suggested the agency was compromising the technology and products of American companies. Old-fashioned methods get a mention too. Der Spiegel said that if the NSA tracked a target ordering a new computer or other electronic accessories, TAO could tap its allies in the FBI and the CIA, intercept the hardware in transit, and take it to a secret workshop where it could be discretely fitted with espionage software before being sent on its way. Intercepting computer equipment in such a way is among the NSAs most productive operations, and has helped harvest intelligence from around the world, one document cited by Der Spiegel stated.

Basketball/B2 Hockey/B2 Scoreboard/B3 College basketball/ B3 NFL/B4, B5 Puzzles/ B6 Comics/ B7 Classifieds/ B8 Chargers, Packers win late to secure playoff berths./B4 SPORTSSection BMONDAY, DECEMBER 30, 2013 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE No playoffs for Miami Jets handle lifeless Dolphins 20-7 Associated PressMIAMI GARDENS The handshakes and backslaps exchanged in the Miami Dolphins locker room late Sunday afternoon were gestures of consolation, not celebration, before players quietly slipped out the back door at the end of another disappointing season. Miami was eliminated from the scramble for the AFCs final wild-card berth by the New York Jets, who thrived in the role of spoilers against their archrivals and won 20-7. The Dolphins blew an early lead to complete a December collapse that will keep them out of the playoffs for a fifth straight year. Its definitely going to take a little while to get over this one, quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. New Yorks Geno Smith led three long scoring drives, ran for a touchdown and threw for 190 yards, while two interceptions by rookie Dee Milliner and one by 35-year-old Ed Reed prevented a Miami comeback. The Dolphins (8-8) squandered a shot at their first postseason berth since 2008 by losing the final two games to nonplayoff teams, including a shutout defeat at last-place Buffalo. It was a dismal end to a roller-coaster season that included a four-game losing streak, a bullying scandal that drew national scrutiny, and a December surge that briefly left the Dolphins in control of their playoff destiny but turned out to be a tease. Our record is 8-8, and thats the definition of average, cornerback Brent Grimes said. We felt like we could be a much better than average team, so were disappointed. We messed up in the last two games. Weve just got to live with that. The Dolphins were outscored 39-7 in those final two games. Now owner Stephen Ross must decide whether to shake up a regime led by second-year coach Joe Philbin and sixth-year general manager Jeff Ireland. The Jets (8-8) celebrated as though theyre playoff-bound but will sit out the postseason for the third year in a row. After the game, owner Woody Johnson announced that coach Rex Ryan would return for a sixth season in 2014. Ryan, whose future had been in question, said Johnson gave him the news before the game. When players were told afterward, they cheered in the locker room. Young tops 1,000 points, No. 13 Florida rolls Becomes 50th Gator to reach mark in 76-34 win Associated PressGAINESVILLE Although Pat Young wasnt keeping count, everyone around him was. Even coach Billy Donovan. Young scored 15 points, becoming the 50th player in school history to reach 1,000 in his career, and No. 13 Florida handled Savannah State 76-34 on Sunday. Young received a standing ovation as he left the game with 5:41 remaining, waving to the crowd as his achievement was announced. About the 8-minute mark, I said, Pat, Im going to put you in. Im going to run some plays at you, Donovan said. He said, Well, Coach, I dont want to force anything. Thats just kind of the kid he is. We put him in there to get that done today and just happy it happened. Young topped the 1,000-point plateau on a putback with 7:15 to play. It came shortly after he stepped to the free throw line with a chance to join the club. The senior clanged it off the front rim, drawing groans from the crowd. He made amends, though, a few minutes later. The fans kept reminding me, Four more, Pat. Two more. One more, Young said. Before the last game, I didnt even know how close I was. I didnt care about it until they told me, Youre this amount of points away. I was more conscious of it then. And now hes relieved its over. Ive just been very fortunate to be on winning teams and to be here overall under Coach Donovan, Young said. I couldnt walk and chew gum Florida center Patric Young is congratualted by his teammates Sunday after passing the 1,000 career point mark in Gainesville against Savannah State.

Brees had five total touchdowns in a 42-17 win. Associated PressNEW ORLEANS The Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended another disappointing season with little defense and lots of questions about the future of coach Greg Schiano. Drew Brees threw for 381 yards and four touchdowns as New Orleans clinched a playoff berth, beating Tampa Bay 42-17 on Sunday at the Superdome. The Bucs (4-12), meanwhile, completed their third consecutive losing season and sixth in a row without a trip to the postseason. Whether Schiano, 11-21 in two seasons with Tampa Bay, returns for a third remains to be seen. The Bucs started the year 0-8 and closed with losses in four of their last five. The Bucs allowed season highs in points and yards (468) against the Saints, who had three scoring tosses of more than 40 yards in the first half. Schiano also called for a fake field goal that failed miserably when the outcome was still in doubt late in the first half. I dont think I have to say anything, Schiano said when asked about his future. Thats not being smug. I come in and do my job the best that I can. Thats other peoples decision. Schiano also has been reportedly linked to a potential opening at Penn State if Nittany Lions coach Bill OBrien leaves for the NFL. I made this comment Wednesday, and Ill say it again I and no one connected to me has had any contact with Penn State, Schiano said. The job I have is the job I want. The Bucs did a poor job of defending Brees, who connected with Lance Moore for a 44-yard touchdown on the Saints opening possession, Robert Meachem for a 41-yard touchdown that made the score 14-7 in the second quarter and a wide open Kenny Stills for 76 yards as the Saints went ahead 28-14 with 2:40 left in the half. Meachem outjumped cornerback Darrelle Revis in the corner of the end zone for his touchdown. No one covered Stills, who ran down the seam and was at least 10 yards in the clear. Brees was 17 of 21 for 321 yards in the first half, when he threw all four of his Rangers top Lightning 4-3 Associated PressTAMPA Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves in his first start in four games, and Mats Zuccarello had a goal and two assists in the New York Rangers 4-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night. Lundqvist watched from the bench as backup Cam Talbot started the previous three games, winning two, after Lundqvist struggled through a 1-4-2 stretch. Rick Nash, Chris Kreider and Benoit Pouliot also scored for the Rangers, who had three power-play goals. Ryan McDonagh and Derick Brassard had two assists each. Tampa Bay got goals from Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat and Valtteri Filppula. The Rangers went up 4-2 on second-period powerplay goals by Kreider and Pouliot. Kreider beat Anders Lindback with a backhander at 4:35, and Pouliot extended his point streak to seven games with an in-close redirection 3:16 later. Tampa Bay pulled within 4-3 on Filppulas tip-in 8:14 into the third. It was one of 16 shots the Lightning had on Lundqvist during the period. After Johnson tied it with a power-play goal at 10:41 of the first, Palat scored a rebound goal from the left circle to make it 2-1 with 3:55 left in the period. Nash snapped his seven-game goal drought to put the Rangers up 1-0 just 4:30 into the game. Derek Stepan set up the goal after stealing a pass by Lightning defenseman Radko Gudas.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Ill say this I love being the head coach of the New York Jets, plain and simple, Ryan said. You put everything youve got into it. I never wanted to go out this way. Weve missed the playoffs three straight years, and that bothers me, no question. The Jets made sure they were joined on the postseason sideline by Miami. The only points of the seasons final two weeks for the Dolphins put them ahead 7-0 in the second quarter, but the Jets rallied by mounting touchdown drives of 71 and 80 yards on their final possessions of the first half. When Smith scored on a 7-yard, third-down keeper up the middle with 3 seconds left for a 14-7 lead at halftime, an excited Ryan ran on the field to celebrate with his players. Fans were booing in the first half and streaming for the exits in the final minutes. Smith drove the Jets 63 yards to set up a field goal that gave them a 17-7 cushion with 4:18 left, and on the next play Reed grabbed a deflected pass for his 64th career interception to all but seal the victory. Milliner stopped a Miami threat in the third quarter with a diving interception of Tannehill one play after Mike Wallace dropped a potential touchdown pass that would have tied the game. The Jets played like a team with nothing to lose, which they were, and eager to spoil Miamis season. They kept the Dolphins off balance with swarming defense and imaginative play-calling, including 294-pound defensive lineman Sheldon Richardsons 1-yard plunge for his second rushing touchdown this season. Running back Bilal Powell threw a 30-yard completion to set up the Jets field goal. Dolphins receiver Brian Hartline left the game in the first quarter with a left knee injury, while Wallace and Tannehill found it difficult to click all day. Tannehill overthrew an open Wallace deep, and Wallace slipped and fell on Milliners first interception. They did combine for a 5-yard touchdown to cap an 89-yard drive. But the Dolphins running game sputtered, as usual, and Tannehill finished with a woeful passer rating of 42.1. It cant get worse than this, Wallace said. We let them win. We let them dominate the game. We knew what we had on the line, and we didnt come up with the plays we needed. when I first got here. So I can do a few more things now. I just want to thank him for believing in me and helping me get better. Young was one of four Florida players in double figures. Michael Frazier II finished with 11 points for the Gators (10-2), who have won four straight and nine of 10. Casey Prather and Scottie Wilbekin chipped in 10 points each. Jyles Smith led Savannah State (2-11) with eight points and eight rebounds. The Tigers have lost nine straight. Florida had their way, Savannah State coach Horace Broadnax said. It wasnt too much of a lack of effort on our part. We just werent able to make it interesting. It was Floridas 22nd consecutive home win, two shy of the school record set in 2007. The Gators dominated from the opening tip, getting any shot they wanted against the undersized Tigers. Florida used two double-digit runs to make the game a rout, outscoring Savannah State 12-0 early and then 14-0 a few minutes later. The Tigers went 5:47 without a basket before enduring an 8:12 scoreless stretch. Florida led 34-11 at halftime and coasted from there. The only thing worth watching in the second half was Youngs countdown to 1,000.

Joseph Young scored 24 points and No. 12 Oregon continued its best start in eight seasons with a 97-76 victory against Morgan State. Richard Amardi had a season-high 16 points in his first start of the season, and Damyean Dotson scored 15 points for the Ducks (12-0), who are off to their best start since going 13-0 in 2006-07. Justin Black scored 22 points for the Bears (3-9), and Anthony Hubbard added 15.No. 10 Wichita St. 81, Davidson 70WICHITA, Kan. Cleanthony Early had 24 points and 10 rebounds to help No. 10 Wichita State to extend the best start in school history with an 81-70 victory over Davidson on Sunday. Ron Baker had 15 points for Wichita State (13-0) while Darius Carter scored 13 and Tekele Cotton added 10. Tyler Kalinoski had 17 points for Davidson (4-9), while Tom Droney added 12 and DeMon Brooks scored 10.From wire reports scoring passes and took a perfect 158.3 passer rating into the locker room. His final line was 24 of 31 for 381 yards, no interceptions and a rating of 157.4. We made mistakes, and they executed when we did, Revis said. Drew Brees is a Hall of Fame quarterback. Hell pick you apart if you make a mistake like that. Tampa Bay, which entered with the lowest-ranked offense, moved the ball effectively early. After the Saints scored on their opening possession for the first time in 11 games, the Bucs responded on their first series with a flea-flicker that went for a 48-yard touchdown to Tiquan Underwood. Underwood was wide open after safety Malcolm Jenkins was drawn in by the handoff to Bobby Rainey. New Orleans took the lead right back with another 80-yard drive, that one highlighted by Grahams 33-yard reception, Darren Sproles 24-yard gain on a screen pass and Grahams 10-yard TD catch, the Pro Bowl tight ends team-leading 16th score of the season. Tampa Bay pulled within 21-14 on tight end Tim Wrights 1-yard reception, capping a nine-play, 80-yard drive. The next time the Bucs had the ball, Schiano tried the fake field goal on fourth-and-10 from the Saints 25. Holder Michael Koenen, the punter, took a shotgun snap, rolled to his right and threw the ball away under duress. They had no timeouts, so I thought that we could maybe get them off guard, Schiano said. Obviously it didnt work. In retrospect, bad call. Tampa Bay converted a 54-yard field goal on its opening drive of the second half to cut the deficit to 28-17 but did not score again. New Orleans put the game away with touchdowns on its first two series on the second half. Glennon, who started the last 13 games, went 22 of 41 for 219 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. He was no match for Brees, though, and neither were the Bucs. Any time you win only four games, there are definitely going to be some type of changes, right tackle Demar Dotson said. Upstairs, downstairs. I dont know what its going to be. I dont have a vote. BUCSContinued from Page B1 Browns fire coach Rob ChudzinskiCLEVELAND The Cleveland Browns have fired coach Rob Chudzinski following one season, which started promising but ended with a seven-game losing streak. Chudzinski had only been in place since Jan. 11, when the Ohio native and lifelong Browns fan was hired for his dream position by owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner. The Browns started 4-5, but collapsed in the final two months and the organization decided Sunday night to cut ties before heading into a second season with Chudzinski. Cleveland ended its season with a 20-7 loss in Pittsburgh. The Browns dropped 10 of their last 11. Chudzinski had plenty to deal with as a rookie coach, including an unsettled quarterback situation as the Browns were forced to use three starters because of injuries.Michael Schumacher in critical conditionPARIS Seven-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher was in critical condition after undergoing brain surgery following a skiing accident in the French Alps on Sunday, doctors said. The Grenoble University Hospital Center said the retired racing driver arrived at the clinic in a coma and underwent immediate surgery for a serious head trauma. It was not clear whether the 44-yearold Schumacher was still in a coma but the hospital statement, which was signed by a neurosurgeon, an anesthesiologist and Marc Penaud, the hospitals deputy director, said he remains in a critical condition. Schumacher fell while skiing off-piste in Meribel earlier Sunday and hit his head on a rock, according to a statement from the resort. Resort managers said he had been wearing a helmet and was conscious when rescuers first responded to the scene. Schumacher initially retired from F1 in 2006 after winning five straight titles with Ferrari following two earlier ones with Benetton. He returned to the sport in 2010 and drove for three seasons for Mercedes without much success before retiring again last year.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Arizona, Feely 37 (WR), 43 (WR). A Pack comeback Rodgers late TD throw beats Bears, wins NFC North Associated PressCHICAGO Aaron Rodgers fired a 48-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb in the final minute, and the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears 33-28 to capture the NFC North championship. Back after missing seven games with a broken left collarbone, Rodgers found a wide open Cobb on fourth-and-8 at the 48 to wipe out a one-point deficit with 38 seconds left. Green Bay will host San Francisco next weekend. The Bears had one final drive, but Jay Cutlers deep pass to Alshon Jeffery was intercepted by Sam Shields on the final play. That gave the Packers (8-7-1) their third straight division title and fifth postseason appearance in a row. It also kept the Bears (8-8) out of the playoffs for the sixth time in seven years.Chargers 27, Chiefs 24, OTSAN DIEGO Nick Novak kicked a 36-yard field goal with 5:30 left in overtime and the San Diego Chargers, who trailed by 10 points in the fourth quarter, beat the Kansas Chiefs 27-24 to claim the AFCs final playoff spot. The Chargers (9-7) ended a threeyear postseason drought. The winning drive was kept alive by a 2-yard gain by Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle on a fake punt on fourth-and-2 from the Chargers 28. The game ended when Kansas City couldnt convert on fourth-and-15 from the San Diego 41 with 3:16 left. With the Chargers on the verge of an embarrassing collapse against a team resting 20 of 22 starters, Philip Rivers threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Eddie Royal early in the fourth quarter and Novak kicked a 22-yard field goal to tie it. Kansas City kicker Ryan Succop was wide right on a potential game-winning, 41-yard field goal try with 4 seconds left in regulation.Steelers 20, Browns 7PITTSBURGH Pittsburgh played like it didnt want its season to end. Cleveland looked as though it couldnt wait to pack things up and go home. The Browns got their wish. The Steelers did not. LeVeon Bell ran for 90 yards and a touchdown as Pittsburgh drubbed lifeless Cleveland 20-7 on Sunday. It wasnt quite enough to secure an unlikely playoff spot. The Steelers (8-8) were eliminated from postseason contention when San Diego edged Kansas City 27-24 in overtime on Sunday evening. Pittsburgh went 6-2 over the final eight weeks to rally from a miserable start, but failed to make the playoffs for the second straight season. Jason Campbell passed for 240 yards for the Browns (4-12), who lost seven straight to end the year.Broncos 34, Raiders 14OAKLAND, Calif. Peyton Manning set the NFL single-season yards record and threw four touchdown passes to clinch the top seed in the AFC playoffs for the Denver Broncos with a 34-14 victory over the Oakland Raiders. Manning needed one half to add the yards record to the touchdown mark he set last week and assure the Broncos (13-3) would have home-field advantage in the playoffs. He threw touchdown passes to Eric Decker and Knowshon Moreno in the first quarter and two to Demaryius Thomas in the second. He broke Drew Brees record of 5,476 yards set in 2011 with a 5-yard pass to Thomas with 13 seconds left in the half to make it 31-0. Manning finished the season with 5,477 yards and 55 touchdown passes.Patriots 34, Bills 20FOXBOROUGH, Mass. LeGarrette Blount ran for a career-high 189 yards and two touchdowns and had two long kickoff returns as the New England Patriots clinched a first-round AFC bye with a 34-20 win over the Buffalo Bills on a rainy Sunday. Tom Brady was content to hand the ball off during a steady downpour against a team first in the NFL in sacks and second in interceptions. And Blount responded, leading the charge into the playoffs. Stephen Gostkowski helped make sure the Patriots (12-4) wouldnt have a game next weekend with four field goals. The Bills (6-10) missed the playoffs for the 14th straight year, the leagues longest current streak.Seahawks 27, Rams 9SEATTLE Malcolm Smith returned an interception 37 yards for a touchdown, Marshawn Lynch added a 2-yard scoring run and the Seattle Seahawks clinched the NFC West title and homefield advantage throughout the playoffs with a 27-9 win over the St. Louis Rams. Seattle (13-3) matched the franchise record for wins in a season and finally wrapped up the No. 1 seed after failing in two previous attempts, including last weeks loss to Arizona that snapped a 14-game home winning streak. The defensive effort and a lack of discipline from the Rams (7-9) helped Seattles offense do just enough. Russell Wilson threw a 47-yard TD pass to Golden Tate, and Lynch finished with 97 yards rushing.49ers 23, Cardinals 20GLENDALE, Ariz. Phil Dawson kicked a 40-yard field goal as the game ended to lift San Francisco to a 23-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, giving the 49ers the NFCs No. 5 playoff seed. Dawson had matched his career best with a 56-yarder to put San Francisco (12-4) up 20-17 with 1:45 to go. Jay Feelys 43-yard field goal then tied it for Arizona with 34 seconds left. LaMichael James 45-yard kickoff return and two quick completions by Collin Kaepernick set up Dawsons game winner. Arizona (10-6) rallied from a 17-0 first-quarter deficit to tie it on Carson Palmers 34-yard touchdown pass to Andre Roberts with 3:20 remaining. Anquan Boldin caught nine passes for 149 yards and a TD in his first game back since Arizona traded him to Baltimore after the 2009 season.Eagles 24, Cowboys 22ARLINGTON, Texas Nick Foles threw two touchdown passes, NFL rushing champion LeSean McCoy had 131 yards and a receiving score and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Dallas Cowboys 24-22 in a win-or-gohome game for the NFC East title. The Cowboys (8-8), with Kyle Orton filling in two days after Tony Romo had back surgery, lost to a division rival with a playoff berth on the line for the third straight year. The Eagles (10-6) will host New Orleans a wild-card game Saturday night. Dallas trailed 24-16 when Orton threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Dez Bryant. Orton went back to Bryant for the 2-point conversion, but the ball fell incomplete. The Cowboys got another chance with a stop from their beleaguered defense, but Ortons pass was intercepted by Brandon Boykin on the first play to seal the win. McCoy finished with 1,607 yards. Associated PressGreen Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers throws a touchdown pass Sunday to wide receiver Randall Cobb during the second half against the Chicago Bears in Chicago. The Packers won in the closing seconds to win the NFC North and earn a playoff berth.B4MONDAY, DECEMBER30, 2013 NFL scoresSundays Games Tennessee 16, Houston 10 Minnesota 14, Detroit 13 Carolina 21, Atlanta 20 Pittsburgh 20, Cleveland 7 N.Y.

MISSED FIELD GOALSNone. Champs ousted Associated PressCincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton runs past Baltimore inside linebacker Jameel McClain for a 1-yard touchdown run in the second half Sunday in Cincinnati. The Bengals won 34-17 to eliminate the defending Super Bowl champions from playoff contention. Bengals knock Ravens out of AFC playoff picture 34-17 Associated PressCINCINNATI Andy Dalton threw for two touchdowns, ran for another and set a pair of Bengals passing records on Sunday, leading Cincinnati to a 34-17 victory that eliminated the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. It was an erratic performance by the third-year quarterback, who threw four interceptions as well. The Bengals (11-5) head into the playoffs as AFC North champions. The Ravens (8-8) lost their last two games, becoming the 15th Super Bowl champ that failed to reach the playoffs the following season and the sixth in the last 12 years. In Cincinnati, theres only one thing in mind: finally win a playoff game. The Bengals havent done that since the 1990 season, tied for the seventh-longest streak of futility in NFL history. Most of the focus will be on Dalton, who broke Carson Palmers club records for touchdown passes and yards passing.Colts 30, Jaguars 10INDIANAPOLIS Andrew Luck threw for 282 yards and one touchdown, Robert Mathis reclaimed the NFL sacks lead and Adam Vinatieri joined the 2,000-point club as the Colts routed Jacksonville 30-10. The AFC South champs have now won three straight, matching their longest streak of the season. Indy (11-5) finished with a 6-0 mark against division foes and has outscored its last three opponents 78-20. Jacksonville (4-12) lost its third straight. Luck was 26 of 37 and became the first player in league history to top 8,000 yards in his first two NFL seasons. Mathis retook the sacks lead in the first half and added another in the second half, giving him 19 1/2, and Vinatieri moved into fifth on the career scoring list with 2,006 points, passing George Blanda and Matt Stover. It was never close. Indy built a 17-0 lead and never let the Jags get close.Giants 20, Redskins 6EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Jerrel Jerigan caught a 24-yard touchdown pass and ran 49 yards for another to lead the New York Giants to a 20-6 victory over Washington in what might be Mike Shanahans final game as the Redskins coach. Shanahan has not only seen the Redskins (3-13) finish the season with an eight-game losing streak just a year after winning the NFC East, but his future is uncertain because of his shaky relationship with oft-injured franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III. The Giants (7-9) also arent going to the playoffs, but they closed the season with a 7-3 record after losing their first six games. Its a finish that probably will have two-time Super Bowl winning coach Tom Coughlin back next season, unless the 67-year-old decides he has had enough. The game was the final one at MetLife Stadium until the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.Vikings 14, Lions 13MINNEAPOLIS Rookie Cordarrelle Patterson scored two more touchdowns, including the go-ahead catch in the end zone in the fourth quarter, and the Minnesota Vikings beat the Detroit Lions 14-13 in the final game at the Metrodome after 32 seasons. With both the Vikings (5-10-1) and the Lions (7-9) out of the playoffs, both coaches also faced the possibility of their last full day with their teams. Jim Schwartz fell to 29-52 in five years with the Lions. Leslie Frazier raised his record with the Vikings in three-plus years to 21-33-1. Each of them has reached the playoffs once. The building will be torn down next month to make room for a new domed stadium on the same site.Titans 16, Texans 10NASHVILLE, Tenn. Chris Johnson ran for 127 yards and a touchdown in what might be his last game with the Titans, who beat the Houston Texans 16-10 for a win that may help coach Mike Munchaks argument to stay on the job in 2014. With their 14th straight loss, the Texans (2-14) clinched the No. 1 selection in next Mays draft for the next head coach owner Bob McNair hires. The Titans (7-9) scored 16 straight points in snapping a five-game home skid that was their longest since leaving Houston for Tennessee in 1997. They also won a second straight game for the first time since September, when they started 3-1. Rob Bironas kicked three field goals, including a season-long 55-yarder. Linebacker Akeem Ayers intercepted a pass and forced a fumble as the Titans got four turnovers they turned into 10 points.Panthers 21, Falcons 20ATLANTA Cam Newton threw two touchdown passes, Greg Hardy had a team-record four sacks and the Carolina Panthers clinched the NFC South title by beating the Atlanta Falcons 21-20. The Panthers (12-4) clinched a firstround bye and home-field advantage for at least one game as the No. 2 seed in the NFC. Carolina set a team record by sacking Matt Ryan nine times. The defense also produced a touchdown on Melvin Whites 7-yard interception return in the second quarter. Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez had four catches for 56 yards and was honored at halftime in his final regularseason game. He has announced plans for retirement. Associated PressIndianapolis T.Y. Hilton makes a catch in front of Jacksonvilles Mike Harris during the first half Sunday in Indianapolis.
B6MONDAY, DECEMBER30, 2013CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.As 2013 comes to a close, lets recognize the deal that was chosen by the International Bridge Press Association panel for its Keri Klinger Memorial Declarer Play of the Year award. Appropriately, it was played by the topranked player in the world, Fulvio Fantoni. He was born in Italy, but now represents Monaco. The journalist prize went to Toine van Hoof from the Netherlands. How did Fantoni make six hearts after West led the club queen to declarers ace? Fantunes (as Fantoni and his partner, Claudio Nunes, are known) play an unusual system in which one-level opening bids are natural and unlimited. Norths three-heart raise was pre-emptive. East then produced a revealing takeout double. South made two control-bids (cue-bids), and North jumped to the slam. Fantoni felt that East had 4-0-5-4 or 4-0-4-5 distribution with the four honors he actually held. Trusting his reading of the position, at trick two, Fantoni played a low heart to dummys seven! When East discarded a diamond, declarer continued with the club 10, pitching a diamond from his hand. West won with his jack and returned a trump. South won with dummys 10 and led the club nine, covered by the king and ruffed with the heart queen. Then two rounds of trumps ending on the board squeezed East, not that it mattered. Declarer discarded a diamond and a spade on the eight and six of clubs before taking the marked spade finesse to land his slam. Terrific.

I dont know what I expected as we all grew older, but it certainly wasnt what I got. Heres the problem with my older daughter, Bethany. The three of us had lunch together, and afterward, Bethany said she was bored and had taken on part-time work as a phone sex worker. I was stunned and thought she was making it up. She is notorious for lying. But she swore she was telling the truth. Annie, she and her husband both have good jobs, and she certainly doesnt need the money. It made me furious, but we have not mentioned it since. Now, my younger daughter is treating me terribly. After high school, I discovered that Miranda was a bully to her classmates. She made fun of them and tormented them for years. I had many conversations with both of my daughters about being kind to people, but obviously it never meant a thing to Miranda. I now believe she is transferring that attitude to me. She never misses an opportunity to correct me in front of my grandchildren. She once hurt my feelings so badly, I broke down in tears. After Thanksgiving, she invited me to go shopping. I was at the designated place, but she wasnt there. When I phoned, she said she was tied up at the checkout line in another store one where she knows I love to shop. I said I couldnt wait and was going home. She didnt object. I invited her for Christmas dinner, and she refused to let me know whether she could make it until the day before. Annie, I have had many surgeries and illnesses over the years, but in spite of that, I have lived a pretty good life. My husband and I have been generous with our children. If you see a problem with my attitude, tell me. I am willing to change. Right now, however, I am considering cutting my losses by limiting my contact with both of them. I am too old to put up with this nonsense. North Carolina Dear N.C.: We think your daughters enjoy yanking your chain in whatever direction it will go. We know this can be aggravating, but it does seem that they are close to you, having lunch together and offering to go shopping. If you enjoy that aspect of the relationship, wed urge you to take the rest with a grain of salt, knowing that this is how they are. But if it is too stressful for you to be in their company, it makes perfect sense to limit contact to what you can tolerate. Dear Annie: I consider myself a generous person. I never forget the birthdays of my children, grandchildren or friends. I bring casserole dishes to those who are sick or have lost a loved one. Is it asking too much to get a simple thank you? I wouldnt care whether it was by text message or email. Have we become so entitled that we cant take a few minutes out of our busy lives to show gratitude? Id like to tell my family and friends that if they dont get a check, gift or card from me in the future, its because they dont seem appreciative. Less Generous Dear Less: Dont tell us and hope they will see it. Tell them directly. Explain that without an acknowledgement of your gifts, you arent sure they are welcome or even that mailed items were received. If there is no word of thanks, you will assume in the future that they prefer not to get your cards, checks and casseroles. Dear Annie: I just wanted to add my suggestion for No Hallmark. My 93-year-old mother recycles greeting cards into beautiful bookmarks. Many go to our local library. She loves to do this, and it keeps her busy.
