Strong north winds.PAGE A4TODAY& next morning FRIDAY CHRISVANORMER Staff writerA Jan. 14 cutoff hangs over 2,000 property owners to file an appeal to keep their properties outside of newly defined flood zones that will require the purchase of expensive flood insurance. But during the 90-day appeal period, few have done so. Residents whose properties were identified as at-risk in an updated map that projects flood risk for setting insurance rates were sent letters telling them how to review the map and file an appeal. According to Carl Jones, director of the countys Building Division and flood plain manager, 2,000 properties were newly designated as within flood risk areas in the preliminary map. As of Monday, how many appeals had Jones received? Ive had four total, Jones said. In October 2014, when the new flood risk map comes into effect, homeowners who either didnt appeal or who lost their appeal may receive an unwelcome letter from their mortgage company advising they must buy flood insurance for the mortgaged property. To make matters worse, the updated map will coincide with an increase in flood insurance premium rates through the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Congress passed this act to stabilize the National Flood Insurance Programs $24 billion debt, incurred through compensating destruction caused by hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. The purpose was to put the cost of flood insurance back onto property owners in high-risk areas through annual incremental premium increases and phasing out of subsidies. One of the four property owners who appealed, Linda Moran of Floral City, said she was concerned that too few people realized they would be affected because they consider their property elevated. You might never think that you could end up on a flood map, Moran said. But they have done these isolated flood pockets that are maybe the size of your garage. These small areas could impact an owners mortgage, Moran warned. Such an area showed up in Morans yard, so she accumulated data and submitted an appeal to dispute the finding. 2,000 properties in county may face high premiums See FLOOD/ Page A2 ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerYMCA of the Suncoast and the United Way of Citrus County are expanding their successful 2013 programs to make a difference for families countywide.We want to engage more people in the community and encourage them to come out and try those programs that we offer, said Joanna Castle, executive director of YMCA of the Suncoast. We want them to become health-seekers and focus on their quality of life and improving that. We are all about everlasting change, bringing in solutions for families that really make a difference, changing their lives and improving their ability to have family sustaining income, added Amy Meek, United Way of Citrus County CEO. Whats in store for 2014? Castle said the YMCA has many plans up its sleeve: In 2014 well strive to develop the new programs and expand and enhance the programs that we currently have. We started a beforeand after-school program at Homosassa Elementary School, which is amazing. We want to continue to expand that program by increasing enrollment there. Also, we have a new group exercise program, she said. We have been able to expand our adult fitness activities to 14 different programs throughout the community. We started a diabetes prevention program last year. We are going to continue to expand that program and get people involved. We want people to be more engaged in the YMCA in general as far as volunteering, Castle said. We have an excellent group of board members who have helped led us to where we are today. If people are not interested in being on the board then people can participate by helping with administrative tasks, volunteering at school programs, refereeing or coaching or anything like that. There are lots of different ways for people to get involved in the YMCA. In 2014 we are continuing our capital campaign, she said. That is a huge focus for us. Hopefully, we are able to reach our goal by the end of this year. There is no building yet. Once we meet our capital campaign goal we can finalize that and move forward with building our YMCA in Citrus County. It is going to take the entire community to be involved in that. The United Way is not slowing down, either, as it focuses on bringing enrichment resources forward in assisting citizens. In 2014 we are essentially going to be taking the program that has been so successful this year and fully launching it into its own program Prosperity Program, Meek said. We are going to be accepting referrals from our community partner agencies. We will take those referrals and help those individuals to get their GED (General Educational Development degree) or postsecondary education and then bring in the resources that they need. After we interview each person, we assess what their needs are and what barriers are standing in their way.

The YearAHEAD PATFAHERTY Staff writerOn Saturday, a contingent of powerboat racers will be testing the water of Lake Hernando for potential sponsors and a possible future event. The U.S. Formula 1 Powerboat Tour will hold a day of demonstration and exhibition runs to get the feel of the lake, showcase the sport and generate support for hosting its 2014 championship weekend in September. Formula 1 powerboat racing uses tunnel-hull catamarans capable of both high speed and exceptional maneuverability. Overall, the boats must weigh 1,150 pounds with driver. The boats are up to 17 feet long and 7 feet wide. Weight is kept low through the extensive use of carbon fiber and Kevlar. The boats are powered by outboard motors generating more than 400 horsepower that can propel the craft to 100 mph in fewer than 3 seconds and to a maximum speed of more than 135 mph. The race organization, county officials, sheriffs office representatives and others involved with the Saturday event are expected to be on site this PAUL KEMIEL/Special to the ChronicleFormula 1 powerboats like these will hit Lake Hernando on Saturday to get a feel for the lake and provide a preview of what can be expected at a championship race planned for the lake in September.

After a troubled rollout, President Barack Obamas health care overhaul now faces its most personal test: How will it work as people seek care under its new mandates? Most major pieces of the Affordable Care Act take full effect with the new year. That means people who had been denied coverage because of a pre-existing medical condition can book appointments and get prescriptions. Caps on yearly out-of-pocket medical expenses will mean people shouldnt have to worry about bankruptcy after treatment for a catastrophic illness or injury. And all new insurance policies must offer a minimum level of essential Dr. John Venetos poses for a photo Thursday between surgical procedures in Chicago.

then match those needs with the resources. Meek referenced, as an example, a person needing childcare, which requires several months or years of assistance. The individual or family may need the Boys and Girls Club, Early Learning Coalition or another organization to provide consistent, high-quality childcare. We bring that resource to the table. We are really encouraging the agencies in the community to layer up their services to help some of the same people in a more powerful way, she said. So many people recognize that a lack of education is what is standing in their way to achieving and growing in their lives. We want to take that opportunity to help someone reach those goals. In addition to its Prosperity program, the United Way has three main events on the calendar for 2014:Land that Job Jan. 24.Second annual Kids Triathlon May 10.Power of the Purse June 7. We always appreciate how much the community supports us and people in need in Citrus County, Meek said. We hope that they will rally behind our Prosperity Program to bring real lasting change to families that need it so much.

Since last summer, the county and the Southwest Florida Water Management District have invited residents to look at where the proposed flood map puts their property. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sent letters to homeowners and published legal notices on Oct. 9 and Oct. 16 in the Chronicleabout the proposed flood hazard determinations. According to a letter FEMA sent to Jones, the appeals period was the 90 days following the second legal notice publication on Oct. 16, making Jan. 14 the deadline for receiving an appeal. Appeals should be submitted to Jones. Jones and his staff have forwarded the information for the four appeals received to a consultant firm, AECOM in Atlanta, Ga., that provides professional technical and management support services. Jones said AECOM would make the final determination about appeals. According to FEMAs letter to Jones: Only appeals of the proposed flood hazard determination that are supported by scientific or technical data can be considered before FEMA makes its final flood hazard determination at the end of the 90-day appeal period. Usually, when someone appeals, they would submit, hopefully, some scientific or technical data to support the appeal, Jones said. Historic evidence wont work. If somebody were to send me an appeal and say something along the lines of: Ive lived here 22 years and Ive never seen it flood, that would not be considered scientific or technical data, Jones explained. Only appeals that are supported by scientific or technical data can be considered. According to FEMAs letter, scientific or technical data falls into three determinations: projected rainfall, soil conditions and topography. Scientific or technical data would address one of those three, Jones said. The flood map is posted on the Internet at www.floodsmart.gov. However, some property owners have reported the website difficult to access. A paper copy is available at the countys Building Division in Suite 111, 3600 W. Sovereign Path, Lecanto. Call 352-527-5310 for an appointment to review it. I have an open door, Jones said.

Weve been getting a lot of interest in it, said Adam Thomas, interim tourism director. Parks and Recreation has gotten a lot of calls, the Chamber has gotten a lot of calls and weve had a lot of likes on Facebook. Thomas has been working on the exhibition for several months. He said it will give the boat racers a chance to try out the lake and showcase the sport for potential sponsors. We are looking forward to our test day to show what Formula 1 racing can and will bring to the county as well as a preview of the up-close action the fans in the area will get to see come next September, said Jose Mendana Jr., president of the U.S. Formula 1 Powerboat Tour. The annual U.S. Formula 1 Powerboat Tour will start May 30 in LaPorte, Ind., and continue at various locations in the U.S. and Canada through September. Four boats are scheduled to participate in Saturdays exhibition. The days events will include an open test session for the four teams followed by simulated match races and a 10-lap final. Thomas said the boats will be on the water about 11:30 a.m. for test runs with the match race and the heat race between 1 and 2 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The benefits apply to individual policies as well as those offered through employers. The burden for implementing the law now shifts to insurance companies and health care providers. Dr. John Venetos, a Chicago gastroenterologist, said there is tremendous uncertainty and anxiety among patients who have been calling his office, some of whom believe they have signed up for coverage but have not yet received insurance cards. Theyre not sure if they have coverage. It puts the heavy work on the physician, Venetos said. At some point, every practice is going to make a decision about how long can they continue to see these patients for free if they are not getting paid. Administration officials said this week that 2.1 million consumers have enrolled through the federal and state-run health insurance exchanges that are a central feature of the Affordable Care Act. Yet how many of those who signed up for coverage on the exchanges will follow through and pay their premiums will not be known for a couple of weeks. People who signed up on the federal website have until Jan. 10 to pay premiums for coverage retroactive to Jan. 1. Premiums paid after the deadline will be applied to coverage starting Feb. 1 or later. Consumers have until March 31 to sign up in time to avoid a federal tax penalty for remaining uninsured. That fine starts at $95 for an individual this year but climbs rapidly, to a minimum of $695 by 2016. There is an additional fine for parents who do not get health insurance for their children. Although the federal website is apparently fixed for consumers, the start of the year was expected to bring plenty of confusion. Even before the January start of coverage, health insurance companies said they were receiving thousands of erroneous sign-up applications from the government. Anticipating disruptions, major drug store chains such as CVS and Walgreens have announced they will help customers who face coverage questions, even providing temporary supplies of medications without insisting on upfront payment.

He is Citrus Countys only New Years baby. Keegan had a family waiting for him. Along with his mom and dad, David, his siblings are Kylee, 9; Konnor, 5; and Kenadie, 4. Kelly Desmond chalked the early delivery up to a shopping trip to Ocala on Tuesday. We were at the mall. My last supper was a Chick-Fil-A, she said. She knew when arriving home that it was time.

He weighs 7 pounds, 1 ounce and measured 19 1/4 inches. Citrus Hills family welcomes New Years addition Associated PressMIAMI A judge has sided with The Florida Times-Unionin a lawsuit arguing that Jacksonville city officials broke Floridas open-government laws when they held private talks over proposed changes to police and firefighter pensions. In a ruling issued Tuesday, Circuit Judge Waddell Wallace said the talks held from March through May were subject to the states Sunshine Law and should have been public. The ruling blocks the city from continuing private talks. At a May 8 news conference, Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown announced that a new pension agreement had been reached with the Jacksonville Police and Fire Pension Fund Board of Trustees. Our first question was, wait a minute, when did you negotiate this? Denton said Thursday. Denton sued Brown, the city and the pension fund board for violating the Sunshine Law. According to Wallaces ruling, the defendants argued that the pension talks were not subject to the Sunshine Law because they were part of a mediation process ordered in a federal court civil action filed against the city by the firefighters union president. Wallace found that the federal mediation sessions amounted to collective bargaining between the city and the board, which was undoubtedly acting as a representative of the unions. As bodies subject to the Sunshine Law, the Pension Fund Board and City were required to conduct their negotiations in the public realm, Wallace wrote. If Wallace had ruled against the Times-Union, Florida cities could have used the federal courts or entities such as the pension fund board to evade the Sunshine Law, said Dentons attorney, George Gabel. Wallace also ruled that if the federal court orders them to negotiate privately, they must inform the court about his injunction and the Sunshine Law. Mayors office spokeswoman Aleizha Batson said in an email: While we will review the ruling and discuss next steps with the Office of General Counsel, Mayor Brown is focused on resolving the Citys pension challenges. He will continue to work closely with Chairman Bill Scheu, the Jacksonville Retirement Task Force and City Council to achieve a comprehensive retirement reform solution for taxpayers and city employees. While the Jacksonville City Council rejected the pension agreement in July, the public has a right to know about the proceedings that led to a proposed 30-year labor agreement involving millions of dollars, Denton said. Any time theres labor negotiations, theres give and take, and the public has a right and a need to see what the gives and takes are, Denton said. Judge: Closed pension talks violate law Special to the ChronicleThe Florida Park Service will present the annual reenactment of Dades Battle in 1835 this Saturday and Sunday at Dade Battlefield Historic State Park in Bushnell. This is the 34th reenactment of the fight, commemorating the 178th anniversary of the battle that started the Second Seminole War. The reenactment is a step back in time, with participants in period soldier costumes. There are Seminole and Civilian camps, a sutler trade fair, historic arts and crafts demonstrations, full-scale cannon firing, musket shooting, tomahawk throwing and primitive archery. On Dec. 28, 1835, Indian warriors ambushed 108 U.S. soldiers at this site and only three soldiers survived.

Rick Scott signed a death warrant Thursday for the man who kidnapped, raped and murdered 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce on his way home from school almost 20 years ago. Juan Carlos Chavez, 46, is scheduled to die by lethal injection Feb. 12 for the Sept. 11, 1995 murder in a rural area in Miami-Dade County. It was a case that horrified the state and led to the passage of the Jimmy Ryce Act, which allows authorities to commit dangerous sexual predators to mental institutions once they have completed their prison terms. The law would not have stopped Chavez, however, as he had no previous record for sex crimes. Warrant signed for Ryces killer

south Georgia bank where he was director. He was also accused of taking many millions more from investors in his money management business. He faces federal wire fraud charges in New York. Price left his home in south Georgia on June 16, 2012, telling his family he was headed to Guatemala for business, authorities have said. Two days later, Prices family and acquaintances received letters saying he was going to Key West to board a ferry headed to Fort Myers and planned to jump off somewhere along the way to end his life. My depression and discouragement have driven me to deep anxiety, fear and shame. I am emotionally overwhelmed and incapable of continuing in this life, said a rambling confession letter investigators believe was written by Price. Credit card records showed he purchased dive weights and a ferry ticket. The ferry ticket was scanned at the boarding point, and security camera footage released by the FBI about six weeks after his disappearance showed Price at the Key West, Fla., airport and ferry terminal on the day he disappeared. He was arrested Tuesday when Glynn County sheriffs deputies pulled over a 2001 Dodge because they thought its window tint was too dark, Sheriff E. Neal Jump was quoted by the Journal-Constitutionas saying. Deputies arrested Price after finding fake IDs in the vehicle. Associated PressBRUNSWICK, Ga. A south Georgia bank director accused of losing millions of investor dollars before vanishing was homeless and working odd jobs before his arrest earlier this week, a U.S. marshal told a federal judge Thursday. U.S. District Judge James Graham in Brunswick formally notified Aubrey Lee Price of the charges against him. The 47-year-old was arrested Tuesday during a traffic stop on Interstate 95 in the coastal Georgia city. Price had disappeared in June 2012 after sending a rambling letter to his family and acquaintances that investigators described as a confession. The letter said he had lost millions in investors dollars and planned to kill himself by jumping from a ferry in Florida. A Florida judge declared him dead a year ago, but FBI authorities said they didnt believe Price was dead and continued to search for him. The U.S. marshal said at the hearing Thursday that Price told authorities hed been working as a migrant worker, accepting cash for odd jobs,The Atlanta JournalConstitutionreported. An FBI spokesman said Wednesday that Price told authorities his family didnt know he was still alive and that he had returned to Georgia to renew the tag on his truck. It wasnt clear where hed been for the previous 18 months. Price was indicted in federal court in Savannah in July 2012 on charges of taking $21 million from a small Vermont Hicks, 80BEVERLY HILLSMegan Vermont Vee (Hinson) Hicks, 80, of Beverly Hills, Fla., died Jan. 1, 2014, at Hospice of Citrus County in Lecanto after a long battle with cancer.

Snapchat quiet after security breachNEW YORK Snapchat, the disappearing-message service popular with young people, has been quiet following a security breach that allowed hackers to collect the usernames and phone numbers of some 4.6 million of its users. The breach occurred after security experts say they warned the company at least twice about a vulnerability in its system. Snapchats seemingly detached response is causing some security specialists to wonder whether the relatively young company can handle the spotlight that its been thrust into over the last year as its service becomes enormously popular.Factory, construction growth boost 2014 outlookWASHINGTON Expectations are rising for a stronger U.S. economy in 2014 after reports showed solid growth in manufacturing and construction spending at the end of last year. Factory activity in December stayed near a 2 1/2 -year high. Americans are buying more cars and homes, increasing demand for steel, furniture and other manufactured goods. Manufacturers have boosted hiring to meet that demand and may add jobs at a healthier pace this year. Builders stepped up spending on home construction in November, despite recent increases in borrowing rates. That suggests many remain confident in the housing recovery.Warning issued about oil shipped from N.D., Mont.BILLINGS, Mont. Following a string of explosive accidents, federal officials said that crude oil being shipped by rail from the Northern Plains across the U.S. and Canada may be more flammable than traditional forms of oil. A safety alert issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation warns the public, emergency responders and shippers about the potential high volatility of crude from the Bakken oil shale patch. The massive oil reserve is fueling the surging industry in eastern Montana and western North Dakota, which is now the nations second-largest oil producer. The warning comes after a massive explosion caused by an oil train derailment on Monday near Casselton, N.D.U.S. construction spending up 1 percent in NovemberWASHINGTON U.S. construction spending rose in November at the strongest pace in more than four years, driven by solid gains in home construction and commercial projects. The Commerce Department said construction spending increased 1 percent in November to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $934.4 billion. Thats the fastest rate since March 2009 and a slight improvement on the revised 0.9 percent gain in October. Residential construction rose 1.9 percent in November, after falling in October. Spending on single-family homes has increased 18.4 percent year over year, while spending on apartment buildings is up 36.3 percent during the same period.Macys, Martha Stewart Living settle disputeNEW YORK Macys and Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia say they have settled a breach-of-contract lawsuit involving J.C.

In a New Years day announcement, Fiat Spa said it could complete its acquisition of Chrysler without having to raise new capital through a rights issue. Investors cheered the fact, bidding the shares up 12 percent on the Milan exchange. The stock was up by as much as 15.8 percent earlier in the day.Study finds Medicaid expansion drove up ER visitsSALEM, Ore. A new study has found that people enrolled recently in Medicaid went to the emergency room 40 percent more frequently than others, often seeking help for conditions that could be treated less expensively in a doctors office or an urgent care clinic. The research, published by the journal Science, comes as millions of Americans gain health insurance this week under the federal health care law, many of them through Medicaid.New drug approvals from FDA declined in 2013WASHINGTON The Food and Drug Administration approved 27 first-of-a-kind drugs in 2013, down from 39 new medications in 2012, which was a 15-year high. Despite the decline, FDA officials say the tally of innovative medications approved last year is in line with the historical trend. On average, the FDA has approved 28 first-of-a-kind drugs annually over the past five years. FDA drug approvals are watched closely by analysts as both a barometer of industry innovation and the federal governments efficiency in reviewing new therapies. Experts say the number of drug approvals declined in 2013 mainly because there were fewer drugs submitted for review.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFRIDAY, JANUARY3, 2014 A7 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,600 1,680 1,760 1,840 1,920 JASOND 1,760 1,820 1,880 S&P 500Close: 1,831.98 Change: -16.38 (-0.9%) 10 DAYS 14,500 15,000 15,500 16,000 16,500 17,000 JASOND 15,800 16,200 16,600 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,441.35 Change: -135.31 (-0.8%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1049 Declined2073 New Highs91 New Lows28 Vol. (in mil.)3,007 Pvs. Volume2,257 1,696 1,348 927 1657 105 9 NYSE NASD DOW 16573.0716416.4916441.35-135.31-0.82%-0.82% DOW Trans.7400.197274.077287.87-112.70-1.52%-1.52% DOW Util.490.31482.32482.88-7.69-1.57%-1.57% NYSE Comp.10352.7110258.6310283.40-116.93-1.12%-1.12% NASDAQ4160.964131.794143.07-33.52-0.80%-0.80% S&P5001845.861827.741831.98-16.38-0.89%-0.89% S&P4001339.991324.521328.23-14.30-1.07%-1.07% Wilshire 500019706.0319484.3919533.84-172.19-0.87%-0.87% Russell 20001160.531146.591150.72-12.76-1.11%-1.11% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

The Standard & Poors 500 index began the New Year with its worst performance in three weeks as energy and technology companies pulled down the stock market. Stocks started the year at lofty heights after a combination of rising company earnings and economic stimulus from the Federal Reserve pushed major indexes to record levels in 2013. The S&P 500 surged almost 30 percent, its best year since 1997, and the Dow Jones industrial average climbed 26.5 percent, the most since 1995. The market was grossly overbought and needed to pull back, said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Rockwell Global Capital. But fundamentally everything is looking pretty good. The S&P 500 dropped 16.38 points, or 0.9 percent, to 1,831.98, its worst start to a years trading since Jan. 2, 2008, when the index slumped 1.4 percent. The Dow fell 135.31 points, or 0.8 percent, to 16,441.35. The Nasdaq composite slid 33.52 points, or 0.8 percent, to 4,143.07. Energy stocks fell as the price of oil dropped $2.98, or 3 percent, to $95.44 a barrel. Oil slumped after reports that an end to protests at a major Libyan oil field could return 300,000 barrels of daily production to the global market. Technology stocks lost ground after analysts published gloomy notes on companies in the sector. Analog Devices lost $1.65, or 3.2 percent, to $49.28 after analysts at Goldman Sachs advised its clients to sell the chipmakers stock, saying its overvalued compared to its peers. Apple fell $7.89, or 1.4 percent, to $553.13, after Wells Fargo cut its outlook on the stock to market perform from outperform, saying profit margins may come under pressure later this year. Some analysts said investors shouldnt read too much into the lackluster start to the year because trading volumes were below normal as the holiday season wound down with many market participants still away from their desks. Investors will be hoping that the stock market steadies because its performance in January often gives an indication of how the rest of the year might turn out. The January barometer has proven accurate almost 90 percent of years since 1950, according to the Stock Traders Almanac.

Page A8FRIDAY, JANUARY 3, 2014 Open letter to St. Augustine grassI know weve been together for a long time. When I first let you into my life, it seemed like a good idea you looked great and I was getting a lot of pressure to start a relationship with you. But now, I look out my window and see you sprawled out across my yard and I realize that youre highmaintenance, you drink too much, and you have an unhealthy relationship with the landscapers I see them give you those chemicals. What Im saying is that its not me, its you, and ... Im going native. Yes, this is the right decision. Ive been talking to my friends the manatees, dolphins, sh, and birds, and they agree with me. Were all so over you. Its that time of year to start pondering New Years resolutions. One fantastic thing you can do for Floridas environment is to convert your yard to Florida-friendly landscaping. This cuts down on water use, which protects Floridas rivers and aquifer; reduces fertilizer use, which protects our coastal waters; and provides habitat for wildlife. If you live in an apartment complex or an HOA that just wont budge, install a rain barrel, a compost bin, and plant native species of flowers, trees, and shrubs in those areas over which you do have control, and talk to your neighbors and the management about making changes to the property that could result in less grass, mowing, fertilizer, and water use, and ultimately, lower maintenance fees.Dr. Katie Tripp Save the Manatee ClubYou cant beat freeOn Dec. 22, Michael Francis reviewed Double Down: Game Change 2012, Mark Halperin and John Heilemanns analysis of why Obama won and Romney lost. According to him, the authors considered Romneys reference to the 47 percent of Americans who pay no taxes a lethal shot in the foot. There are, however, other analysts who note that the non-taxpaying 47 percent were those living off government largesse (tax rebates, unemployment benefits and food stamps) and actually benefitting from Obamas failed economic policies. They knew who to vote for and it wasnt Mitt Romney. In a column published in The Israeli National News on Nov. 7, 2012, Steven Pruzansky of Teaneck, N.J., summed it up well: The simplest reason why Romney lost was because it is impossible to compete against free stuff. Our founders believed that when given the opportunity, voters would elect to Congress only those committed to keeping government small and out of their personnel affairs. I think thats not working anymore. John McFadden Inverness PRINCETON, N.J.In a scientific complex on 88 bucolic acres near here, some astonishingly talented people are advancing a decades-long project to create a sun on Earth. When not if; when decades hence they and collaborators around the world succeed, their achievement will be more transformative of human life than any prior scientific achievement. The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratorys (PPPL) focus magnetic fusion research began at the university in 1951. It was grounded in the earlier work of a European scientist then living in Princeton. Einsteins theory that mass could be converted into energy had been demonstrated six years earlier near Alamogordo, N.M., by fission the splitting of atoms, which released the energy that held the atoms together. By the 1950s, however, attention was turning to an unimaginably more promising method of releasing energy from transforming matter the way the sun does, by fusion. Every second the sun produces a million times more energy than the world consumes in a year. But to take a sun and put it in a box the description of one scientist here requires developing the new field of plasma physics and solving the most difficult engineering problems in the history of science. The objective is to create conditions for the controlled release of huge amounts of energy from the fusion of two hydrogen isotopes, deuterium and tritium. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe; Earths water contains a virtually inexhaustible supply (10 trillion tons) of deuterium, and tritium is bred in the fusion plant itself. The sun is a huge sphere of plasma, which is a hot, electrically charged gas. The production and confinement of plasma in laboratories is now routine. The task now is to solve the problem of net energy producing more electrical power than is required for the production of it. Magnets produce a magnetic field sufficient to prevent particles heated beyond the suns temperature more than 100 million degrees Celsius from hitting the walls of the containment vessel. Understanding plasmas behavior requires the assistance of Titan, one of the worlds fastest computers, which is located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee and can perform more than 17 quadrillion a million billion calculations a second. As in todays coal-fired power plants, the ultimate object is heat to turn water into steam that drives generators. Fusion, however, produces no greenhouse gases, no long-lived nuclear waste and no risk of the sort of runaway reaction that occurred at Fukushima. Fusion research here and elsewhere is supported by nations with half the worlds population China, India, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the European Union. The current domestic spending pace would cost $2.5 billion over 10 years about one-thirtieth of what may be squandered in California on a 19th-century technology (a train). By one estimate, to bring about a working fusion reactor in 20 years would cost $30 billion approximately the cost of one week of U.S. energy consumption. Given the societal will, commercially feasible production of fusion energy is possible in the lifetimes of most people now living. The cost of operating the PPPL complex, which a century from now might be designated a historic site, is 0.01 percent of U.S. energy spending. PPPLs budget is a minuscule fraction of U.S. energy infrastructure investment (power plants, pipelines). Yet the laboratory, which once had a staff of 1,400, today has only 450. The Apollo space program was much less technologically demanding and much more accessible to public understanding. It occurred in the context of U.S.-Soviet competition; it was directly relevant to national security (ballistic missiles; the coin of international prestige); it had a time frame for success President Kennedys pledge to go to the moon in the 1960s that could hold the publics attention, and incremental progress (orbital flights) the public could comprehend. Because the fusion energy program lacks such immediacy, transparency and glamour, it poses a much more difficult test for the political process. Because of its large scale and long time horizon, the fusion project is a perfect example of a public good the private sector cannot pursue and the public sector should not slight. Most government revenues now feed the publics unslakable appetite for transfer payments. The challenge for todays political class is to moderate its subservience to this appetite sufficiently to enable the basic science that will earn tomorrows gratitude.

A&E over-reacted when the star of its Duck Dynasty cable series made some comments that were highly offensive to those in the gay community. Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty made the comments in a church sermon and a magazine interview and defended his strong interpretation of passages in the bible. Supporters of the gay community reacted with outrage and demanded that A&E take actions against Robertson. The cable channel immediately caved and suspended the star from the highly rated show. A&E reacted way too quickly. Robertsons comments concerning his views of God, country, guns and gays are his personal beliefs and were not even part of the Duck Dynasty program. They were his personal views and our Constitution provides protection to individuals who express their personal views even if they are not popular with everyone. It is perfectly OK for those who disagree with Robertsons positions to rant and rave about his comments. But in no way should any of us try to limit his right to make those comments. If we take that right away from one, we take it away from all. A&E has seen the broader picture and dropped its suspension of Robertson from Duck Dynasty. The cable television marketplace will make the decision about the future popularity of the program. We as a people who appreciate the Constitution dont have to defend the content of his comments, but we should all defend his right to express his view. Thats one of the key values of our great nation. THE ISSUE:An over-reaction to an opinion.OUR OPINION:Free speech must be protected.

The person claims the poverty level is $14,500 a year. Well, FYI: I make just a little over $13,000 Social Security disability. My wife, who works part time, lost her job. And she is not allowed Medicaid, food stamps, whatever, because I make too much money $13,000-andchange because the poverty level is $12,000-and-something. So I dont know where youre getting your information from. The state does nothing for myself nor my wife at $13,000 a year.Trash birdsThis is concerning the trash along the highways. This shouldnt be a battle between the snowbirds and the local birds. The problem is the trash birds. Theyre just plain slobs. Youre brought up to be either a good person or a person who doesnt care.

This was always such a nice column to read and theres such wonderful ideas. Thank you.Plan events betterI would like to know whose bright idea it was in Citrus County to have two Christmas boat parades one in Homosassa, one in Crystal River on the same night, at the same time. Dont these committees get together and discuss things? They had the Food Truck War up at the mall, they had the Christmas parade in Crystal River and they had the music concert thing at Rock Crusher Canyon, all at the same time on the same night. I think these people ought to get together that plan these events and kind of space them out a little bit so everybody can go to everything. Now its going to be do we go to the Homosassa Christmas parade or do we go to the Crystal River boat parade? Which is it going to be? This is not fair to the residents of Citrus County. Its just absurd.Who does it serve?Ive been following this deal about the Inverness hospital. Id like to know and probably a lot of other people is it all about big business or did the doctors and everybody else forget the creed? You know, their creed, you know, was to help.

TDC missteps continueIm astonished, dismayed and discouraged beyond belief to read that Marla Chancey was recently demoted from her position as director of tourism. Earlier this year, as reported in the Chronicle, the TDC extended a job offer to a person who misrepresented his work history. Did they not thoroughly perform the background check before offering him the job, only to rescind the offer once they discovered his misrepresentation? Next, they have named an interim director of tourism whose background is sports-related. While a sports background qualifies one for the parks and recreation sports coordinator position, clearly those are not the qualities, skills and background required of a tourism director. Certainly poor judgment was used. Demoting a person who has been doing a fine job as tourism director for the past several years reflects again the poor judgment of the decision-makers who chose to take that action. Ms. Chancey was raised, lives and is active in Citrus County and as such, has her finger on the pulse of Citrus County. She has the education and employment history well-suited to the job of tourism director. Ms. Chancey knows how to market Citrus County and Ive seen her in action. Shes a pro and knows what she is doing and where to best invest her time, knowledge and expertise. My own background includes 31 years in marketing, so I do know whereof I speak. Choosing to cite the lack of participation in the Dragon Boat Race as a reason for the demotion smacks of witch hunting and nitpicking on the part of Ms. Bays. One can only surmise someone may have felt job threatened by the abilities, qualities, skills and background of Ms. Chancey. Making the demotion decision while Ms. Chancey was on vacation, and presenting this to her immediately upon her return from said vacation, is also reprehensible and inexcusable. Clearly Ms. Bays should reconsider her actions and decision, as it appears there is again a lack of good judgment. Patti GriffithJail should not be soldThe recent revelation by the county commission to consider selling the jail is both interesting and alarming. Every taxpaying citizen should be watching this situation closely. First, I do not think we will reach a point in this county that the need for a jail would be obsolete. The jail is a fact of life. I argue the jail should be under the control of the sheriff. I am not a strong supporter of the sheriff running animal control, fire and the city police services, but the jail is a well established operation which historically has been one of his duties. Additionally, there is sheriffs staff there for warrants and other computer confidentiality issues. Now, the idea that we would sell our building to the company that is providing the jail services makes very little sense except for the company, Correction Corporation of America (CCA). The county says it would require a buy-back agreement. I would hope that that agreement would be at the original selling price. Once it is sold, we are totally at the mercy of CCA. I have yet to see any governmental agreement that covers even half of the possibilities. Corporations and their multitude of legal staff see to that. Commissioner Kenneys ideas that we could use the money elsewhere is reminiscent of robbing Peter to pay Paul. In government there are always places to spend money, but sound budgeting and prioritizing are imperative. So far Citrus County government has failed miserably! I should mention that there is money to be made in the private corrections world, or why else would they do it? For example, CCA built an addition to our jail at its cost because of the contract to house federal prisoners. The feds pay very well for the service. When Sheriff Charlie Dean ran the jail he also housed federal prisoners, but the reimbursement went to the county, not a private company. There have been several studies regarding cost-effectiveness of privatized jail services. The findings indicated that there are little to no savings. Factor in the sheriffs deputies assigned there for services CCA cant do and the lost revenue from the federal prisoners and I would venture to say it is a loser. Several counties in Florida privatized only to find out it cost more, and in some cases efficiency was an issue. Hernando County was one of the counties that ended up taking the jail back. If Mr. Kenney wants to see these studies, they are readily available on the Internet or I would be pleased to help him find them. There is a very real possibility that we eventually will find our costs to CCA excessive. How would we take back the jail and at what cost to the taxpayers? My issue is control. We gave up much control when we privatized, and now if we give up ownership of the jail, we give up complete control of the jail function, which will leave us at the mercy of the corporation. Remember, everything is about money and how it can be extracted from the taxpayer. Roger B.

Magpul to leave ColoradoCHEYENNE, Wyo. One of the countrys largest producers of ammunition magazines for guns is leaving Colorado and moving operations to Wyoming and Texas because of new state laws that include restrictions on how many cartridges a magazine can hold. Erie, Colo.-based Magpul Industries Corp. announced Thursday that it was moving its production, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne and its headquarters to Texas, making good on a vow it made to leave Colorado during last years gun control debate. Moving operations to locations that support our culture of individual liberties and personal responsibility is important, Magpul CEO Richard Fitzpatrick said in a statement.Justice blocks birth control ruleWASHINGTON The Supreme Court has thrown a hitch into President Barack Obamas new health care law by blocking a requirement that some religion-affiliated organizations provide health insurance that includes birth control. Justice Sonia Sotomayor late Tuesday night decided to block implementation of the contraceptive coverage requirement, only hours before the laws insurance coverage went into effect on New Years Day. Sotomayor acted on a request from an organization of Catholic nuns in Denver, the Little Sisters of the Poor Home for the Aged. Its request for an emergency stay had been denied earlier in the day by a federal appeals court.Suspect arrested in priest killingEUREKA, Calif. Police arrested a suspect Thursday in the killing of a respected priest and educator who was found dead on New Years Day in a church rectory in Northern California. Gary Lee Bullock, 43, of Redway was taken into custody by Humboldt County deputies in the killing of the Rev. Eric Freed, according to police. Freeds body was found in the St. Bernard Church rectory after he failed to show up for morning Mass. Officials were still seeking a motive in the killing. Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A10FRIDAY, JANUARY 3, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressWASHINGTON Americans enter 2014 with a profoundly negative view of their government, expressing little hope that elected officials can or will solve the nations biggest problems, a new poll finds. Half say Americas system of democracy needs either a lot of changes or a complete overhaul, according to the poll conducted by the AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Just 1 in 20 says it works well and needs no changes. Americans, who have a reputation for optimism, have a sharply pessimistic take on their government after years of disappointment in Washington. The percentage of Americans saying the nation is heading in the right direction hasnt topped 50 in about a decade. In the new poll, 70 percent lack confidence in the governments ability to make progress on the important problems and issues facing the country in 2014. The poll comes about two months after partisan gridlock prompted the first government shutdown in 17 years. People feel somewhat better about their personal lives. Most have at least some confidence that theyll be able to handle their own problems in the coming year. A narrow majority say theyd do a better job running the country than todays leaders. Local and state governments inspire more faith than the federal government, according to the poll, with 45 percent at least moderately confident in their state government and 54 percent expressing that much confidence in their local government. When asked to name up to 10 world or national problems they would like the government to be working on in 2014, Americans chiefly cite issues that have dominated and often flummoxed the White House and Congress for five years. Health care reform topped the list. It is likely, however, that those naming the issue include both opponents and supporters of President Barack Obamas sweeping health care overhaul. Jobs and the economy were next, followed by the nations debt and deficit. Some issues that draw ample media and campaign attention rank lower in the publics priorities. No more than 3 percent of Americans listed gay rights, abortion or domestic spying as prime topics for government action. Poll: U.S. more pessimistic More people losing faith that government capable of accomplishing anything Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO The California Supreme Court granted a law license Thursday to a man who has lived in the U.S. illegally for two decades, a ruling that advocates hope will open the door to millions of immigrants seeking to enter other professions such as medicine, nursing and accounting. The unanimous decision means Sergio Garcia, who attended law school and passed the state bar exam while working in a grocery store and on farms, can begin practicing law immediately. Its the latest in a string of legal and legislative victories for people who are in the country illegally. This is a bright new day in California history and bodes well for the future, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles said in a statement. The court sided with state officials in the case, which pitted them against the White House over a 1996 federal law that bars people who are in the U.S. illegally from receiving professional licenses from government agencies or with the use of public money, unless state lawmakers vote otherwise. Bill Hing, a law professor at the University of San Francisco, said the court made clear the only reason it granted Garcias request is that California recently approved a law that specifically authorizes the state to give law licenses to immigrants who are here illegally. The new law, inspired by Garcias situation, took effect Wednesday. Garcia, who plans to be a personal injury attorney in his hometown of Chico, said he hoped the decision would serve as a beacon of hope to others in the same situation. He can hang up a shingle and be his own company, said Hing, who represented the state bar association in the case. Once he does that, a client can retain him as a lawyer. But some questions remained unresolved, such as whether Garcia can appear in federal court or in other states. Federal law makes it illegal for law firms to hire him. Two other similar cases are pending in Florida and New York. Calif. lets illegal resident have law license Immigrants eye more rights Winter wonderland Associated PressPeople walk through a cold and snowy Washington Park on Thursday in Albany, N.Y. A storm expected to bring more than a foot of snow, stiff winds and punishing cold pushed into the Northeast on Thursday, extending Christmas break for some students while posing the first test for New Yorks new mayor and perhaps the last challenge for Bostons outgoing one. Up to 5 inches of snow already had fallen in eastern New York by Thursday morning, but the National Weather Service said some areas from Buffalo to Albany could get a total of up to 14 inches by Friday morning. Associated PressWASHINGTON More than half of female Marines in boot camp cant do three pullups, the minimum standard that was supposed to take effect with the new year, prompting the Marine Corps to delay the requirement, part of the process of equalizing physical standards to integrate women into combat jobs. The delay rekindled sharp debate in the military on the question of whether women have the physical strength for some military jobs, as service branches move toward opening thousands of combat roles to them in 2016. Although no new timetable has been set on the delayed physical requirement, Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Amos wants training officials to continue to gather data and ensure that female Marines are provided with the best opportunity to succeed, Capt. Maureen Krebs, a Marine spokeswoman, said Thursday. Starting with the new year, all female Marines were supposed to be able to do at least three pullups on their annual physical fitness test and eight for a perfect score. The requirement was tested in 2013 on female recruits at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S.C., but only 45 percent of women met the minimum, Krebs said. The Marines had hoped to institute the pullups on the belief that pullups require the muscular strength necessary to perform common military tasks such as scaling a wall, climbing up a rope or lifting and carrying heavy munitions. Officials felt there wasnt a medical risk to putting the new standard into effect as planned across the service, but that the risk of losing recruits and hurting retention of women already in the service was unacceptably high, she said. The delay on the standard could be another wrinkle in the plan to begin allowing women to serve in jobs previously closed to them such as infantry, armor and artillery units. The decision to suspend the scheduled pull-up requirement is a clear indication that plans to move women into direct ground combat fighting teams will not work, said Elaine Donnelly, president of the conservative Center for Military Readiness and a critic of allowing women into infantry jobs. When officials claim that men and women are being trained the same, they are referring to bare minimums, not maximum qualifications that most men can meet but women cannot, Donnelly wrote in an email to The Associated Press. Awarding gender-normed scores so that women can succeed lowers standards for all. Women will suffer more injuries and resentment they do not deserve, and men will be less prepared for the demands of direct ground combat.

He promised Ford more years, and also called himself the best mayor this city has ever had. If you want to get personal, thats fine, Ford told reporters during a press scrum.

The dramatic international rescue operation became possible once the weather finally cleared. Blinding snow, strong winds, fog and thick sea ice forced rescuers to turn back time and again. The twin-rotor helicopter its red and yellow colors contrasting starkly against the ice and snow carried the scientists and tourists from the Russian ship MV Akademik Shokalskiy to an Australian icebreaker, according to the Australian Maritime Safety Authoritys Rescue Coordination Centre, which oversaw the rescue. The eagerly anticipated rescue came after days of failed attempts to reach the vessel, which was trapped since Christmas Eve.Mexico confirms Krokodil drug caseMEXICO CITY Health authorities in western Mexico said Thursday they have detected a probable case of flesh lesions due to the drug Krokodil, often referred to as the poor mans heroin. The head of the council on addictions in the western state of Jalisco, Dr. Enrico Sotelo, said the patient is a 17-year-old woman who is a resident of Houston, Texas. She came to Mexico to visit the Pacific coast resort city of Puerto Vallarta, where she has relatives, in November. Soon after, she checked into a local health clinic for digestive problems, and it was there that doctors detected the flesh lesions. Sotelo, who in accordance with privacy guidelines did not reveal the patients name, said she told authorities she used the drug in Houston. The drug is dubbed krokodil in Russia because of greenish, scaly skin lesions addicts develop, giving them the appearance of having crocodile skin. From wire reports
SEANARNOLD CorrespondentAs a JV call-up last season, Darius Sawyer followed the lead of a multitude of seniors that filled the Lecanto boys basketball roster. Now in his junior season, Sawyers role has changed. Hes the teams leading scorer, averaging 17.3 points a night, and is a persistent game-changing threat, according to Panthers first-year head coach Jeff Anderson. The key to Darius (Sawyer) is his ability to change games in an instant, Anderson said, whether it be a big-time dunk or on a penetration and kick from a teammate who can get him the ball to knock down a 3. Hes a complete player offensively, to where he can do just about anything when hes going. Getting Sawyer going is something Anderson and his Panthers (7-6 overall) count on. But their lack of scoring depth as younger players continue to evolve has led to a high demand for extensive playing time from Sawyer, which means few breaks for the 6-foot-3 wing player. He played 30 minutes in the teams recent win versus East Lake. Lecanto is also dealing with the need to slow down its pace while playing with a pair of 6-foot-8 forwards. Im getting used to it a lot, Sawyer said. Last year, I just kind of followed the older seniors. This year, Im trying to pick up the slack and doing everything Coach tells us to do, and Scoreboard/B3 TV, lottery/B3 NBA, NHL/ B4 College basketball/ B4 High school sports/ B5 College football/B5, B6 NFL/B6 No. 3 Alabama and No. 11 Oklahoma tangle in Sugar Bowl on Thursday night./B3 SPORTSSection BFRIDAY, JANUARY 3, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Versatility name of Sawyers game High-flying Lecanto junior can score in a multitude of ways for team Lecanto junior swingman Darius Sawyer (22) is averaging 17.3 points per contest, a mark that leads the Panthers.MATT PFIFFNER /Chronicle See SAWYER/ Page B3 Associated PressFlorida State corner Lamarcus Joyner can play all four spots in the No. 1 Seminoles defensive backfield. Hybrid players in title game FSUs Joyner, Auburns Uzomah fill roles Associated PressNEWPORT BEACH, Calif. Lamarcus Joyner is listed on Florida States depth chart as a cornerback. That fails to tell the whole story of the All-America defensive back. Auburns C.J. Uzomah is the Tigers No. 1 tight end, though hes almost as likely to line up out wide or in the back field. In college football today it helps to have players who are hard to define because it also makes them hard to neutralize. Hybrid is the term that gets thrown around a lot. Joyner and Uzomah fit the description and could have a major impact on the BCS championship game Monday night, when the topranked Seminoles and No. 2 Tigers meet in the Rose Bowl. Joyner is the Swiss Army knife of Florida States stingy and fast defense, which ranks tops in the nation in yards per play (3.95) and third in yards per game (268.5) allowed. First of all hes very intelligent, Florida State defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt said Thursday. Hes got a lot of football savvy about him. We play six defensive backs and he can play all six positions. Hes a really good man-to-man guy. He can play the ball in the deep part of the field. He can tackle in space. Hes a great blitzer. Hes just an all-around good football player. If Joyner was a basketball player, hed be a point guard who fills up the stat sheet.

The current 5-foot-9, 138-pounder, played forward for nine seasons for West Citrus Soccer and a local competitive team, Citrus United. Prior to matriculating to Lecanto High from Lecanto Middle School his mind was made up. It was time for change, I wasnt feeling it anymore in soccer; I opted out. Interestingly, in middle school he never joined any organized sport. But once he landed at LHS, he navigated to life on the Panther mats. Joel was born in Crystal River and is the older of two sons to Jay Pelton and Suzette Steffer. His father resides in Sugarmill Woods while his mother, a principal at Yankeetown K-8, lives in Citrus Springs. Pelton alternates spending time with both parents. On what got Pelton interested in wrestling, I heard about the sport and went out there and tried it out, he recalled. In the beginning I was terrible. I was getting the crud kick out of me every practice. As a freshman, he concluded his first season in the Class 2A, District 7 Tournament at Hernando High at 126 pounds. After an opening-round bye, he faced top-seeded Springstead sophomore Jordan Rivera. Rivera, a three-time state placer and 2013 2A state champion, folded him up in 50 seconds. Faced with either bowing his neck or going home, Pelton crushed Hernandos Brace Holden before pinning Citrus junior Dalton Tinsley to place third. A week later in 2A-II, aka the Region of Doom at St. Cloud, Peltons stay lasted two matches. Lake Region junior Vince Mott and Celebration junior David Adkins applied respective pins in 4:35 and 1:22. After a 7-9 first campaign, Peltons progress on the mats was impeded due to ineligibility. After returning in January, he meandered his way to the 2A-7 Tournament at Springstead. This time at 132, Pelton stuck Springstead junior Tyler Long (1:47), before topseeded Nature Coast Technical senior Shane Reeger solved him via a pin ((3:49). Faced with the exact scenario as the year before, Pelton earned a bye into the consolation finals before thumping Citrus Dalton Tinsley (11-6) for third place. A week later in 2A-II, Edgewaters Michaledre Rodriguez pinned Pelton (2:58) before dropping a close decision Kathleens Daniel Roberts (7-5). After finishing 5-9, Pelton looked hard into the mirror.

The team made it official Thursday, announcing the onetime Tony Dungy protege who led the Chicago Bears to the Super Bowl seven years ago finalized a five-year contract that he had reportedly agreed to on Wednesday. He will be formally introduced at a news conference next Monday. The 55-year-old Smith replaces Greg Schiano, who was fired Monday following a 4-12 finish. The Bucs also dismissed general manager Mark Dominik, and the search for his successor continues. Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer called it an exciting day for the organization. We knew from the start of our search that he was the ideal man to lead our team into a new era. ... Lovie is an accomplished and very well-respected head coach who has enjoyed success at every level of his 30-year career, Glazer said. In hiring someone with a proven track record as a NFL head coach, ownership departed from the route taken for two other coaching changes over the past five years. The Glazer family promoted Raheem Morris from defensive coordinator to replace Jon Gruden after the Bucs missed the playoffs in 2008. They opted for another candidate with no previous NFL head coaching experience when they lured Schiano from Rutgers, where he had turned a struggling college program into a winner. Schiano was fired after going 11-21 in two seasons. The Bucs lost the first eight games of this season. Associated PressAccording to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lovie Smith has agreed to a five-year contract to replace Greg Schiano as the teams head coach.

Sawyer, a left-handed shooter who can appear taller than his measurements due to his long legs, has a soft, high-arching touch on his long-range shots, but can deliver vicious dunks and blocked shots when the opportunities strike. Hes equally comfortable in the corner, at the top of the key, tossing up midrange jumpers and mixing it up at the boards. His versatility means he can settle for higher percentage shots rather than trying to unwisely impose his game on a defender. He said hes become a better defensive player and slasher this season. Im going to the basket a lot, pushing through contact, he said. Its definitely one of the things Im better at. Anderson said the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (Division I) is interested in Sawyer, and thinks the Mocs up-tempo style is the sort of system that would suit Sawyer well. If hes seen as more than a spot-up No. 2 guard, then hell have something to work with, Anderson said. His shots got to improve a little bit, it gets off a little slow. But he can do that. I see him more as a slasher. Hes just got to get in the right system, something thats up and down, and thats something Chattanooga does. Theyve got athletic (big men) that run the floor, so its a whole different ballgame. Sawyer, whose favorite player is Houston Rockets guard and 2013 NBA All-Star James Harden, said he needs to improve his ball-handling to make it in college. At the next level, youve got players that can dribble the ball, handle it, everything, and thats something Ive got to get better at, he said. Sawyer keeps up with his game in the offseason through AAU travel ball, and said he gets his drive to constantly try to improve from his father and brother. Theyve always been the two people to push me because they know the potential I have, he said. You dont see it from me all the time, but theyve done a good job pushing me to be better than I was yesterday. Sawyer loves to face Citrus senior Devin Pryor and Crystal River senior Ty Reynolds, and has enjoyed matching up with fellow Panther junior Brandon Burich since childhood, when the two shared a competitive ritual. Weve been playing since we were kids, Sawyer explained, and every time I was at his house, wed usually lower the goal and dunk on each other. I always look forward to playing against Brandon (Burich) in practice. Sawyers favorite moment on varsity came in his first game up his sophomore year. It was my first dunk, he recalled. I moved up for a preseason classic against Weeki Wachee, and, I think it was the fourth quarter, I got a fast break and it was my first monster dunk. I was pretty happy about that. to start picking things up quicker and I had to start training outside of school, he added. According to Pelton, his mother encouraged him to switch to CRHS. That transformation went fairly smooth. I had a lot of friends already at Crystal River, he acknowledged. That was a plus; not having to adjust. Since hes joined the Pirates, Pelton was quick to pinpoint who has pushed him the most. Coach Frederick makes me focus in all the time, he said. Coach says even when Im tired thats when I need to be working harder. Hes kinda like my conscience. Pelton has begun to blossom in the Pirate wrestling room. His 5-1 finish with two pins at recent Gulf Duals pushed him to career-best 22-5 slate, featuring 12 pins. Joels a pretty good wrestler, but really hasnt properly trained. The more success hes had, the more he pushes himself, Crystal River head coach Craig Frederick said. His biggest strength is his technique. He can be tough when he wants to be, Frederick noted. Ive got to get him in shape to be able to handle guys in the third period right now; he knows thats his weakness. These days, Pelton is riding a wave of confidence. So far this season has been a confidence builder, Pelton said. My preseason goal was to reach 30 wins; Im bumping that to 40 wins. And I want to qualify for states. When hes against the Pirates two toughest torpedoes in the room Michael Allan and Nick Hooper he said, I realize the key is to push the pace and make the other guy work much harder than he wants to. Like most teenagers he spends most of his spare time off the mats with his friends. Pelton said he owes former CRHS assistant coach Shayne Kenney a great deal of thanks. Coach Shayne moved to Texas just prior to school starting, Pelton said. Hes the one who really started to force me to work hard and with a purpose. two interceptions, four passes broken up and three forced fumbles this season. Hes been asked to do a lot and wished he could do even more. If its important enough to you, you would do it and the passion that I have for the game it allows me to do so, he said. Whatever I have to learn I will do it. If the dear Lord blessed me to be 50 pounds heavier and 3 more inches taller I may go to linebacker or d-end or something. I just love football. While most cornerbacks become stars because of their ability to play on an island, isolated with an elite receiver, Joyner thrives on being in on the action. I love being around that ball, he said. You have some lockdown corners and they dont get any action. I get to roam around on the football field, stick my nose in everyones business and always be around the football. Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee compared Joyner to former Alabama All-America cornerback Javier Arenas. Hes a guy we have to know where hes at, Lashlee said. We have to account for him because you see some plays some teams run the ball one way and hes making a play 20 yards on the other side of the field before guys on that side of the field are. You can tell hes got a high football IQ. Uzomah does most of his work away from the ball. The former high school quarterback from Suwanee, Ga., made the transition to tight end when he got to college in 2011 and added wide receiver to his title last year when Auburn was playing a pro-style offense under former coach Gene Chizik. But in coach Gus Malzahns spread hes back to being a tight end in name, if not strictly by definition. CJ is extremely versatile, Lashlee said. He can play tight end. He can flex out and be a receiver. He can be in the backfield like an H-back. He can play inside or outside receiver. Hes got enough size and strength to block defensive linemen, linebackers. Hes got enough speed and quickness. He has that ability to separate or great ball skills that allow him to play out on the perimeter some, too. Uzomahs made only nine catches this season for 146 yards while being limited at times by a leg injury. He has caught three touchdown passes, including the game-winner with 10 seconds left in the Mississippi State game.

Johnsons game-winning shot capped an improbable rally from a 16-point second-half deficit for the Nets (11-21), led by a season-high 29 points from point guard Deron Williams. Brooklyn trailed 77-61 late in the third quarter, but Williams scored 18 in the second half and helped set the stage for Johnsons last-second shot. Paul Pierce added 18 points for the Nets.

They have two remaining on a four-game homestand. Noah had nine assists early in the fourth quarter, but couldnt get another and fell just short of a tripledouble. Butler missed a jumper with 8 seconds left, Noahs last chance at reaching 10 assists. The Bulls (13-18) passed the Celtics (13-19) for eighth place in the Eastern Conference. The top eight teams make the playoffs.

Hayward, Utahs leading scorer, had failed to reach double-digits in the previous two games but was efficient from the start against the Bucks with 18 in the first half. Favors took his turn as the center of the improving Jazz offense at crunch time with seven points in the final 2:02 to clinch the game. The Jazz made all 17 free throw attempts and outrebounded the Bucks 43-34 in the matchup of teams with the worst records in each conference. Larry Sanders went 7 of 7 on field goals to lead Milwaukee with 16 points, while Luke Ridnour had 12 points and Gary Neal finished with 11.Knicks 105, Spurs 101SAN ANTONIO Iman Shumpert scored a career-high 27 points, Carmelo Anthony had 27 points and 12 rebounds in his return from injury and the New York Knicks surprised the San Antonio Spurs 105-101.

Marek Mazanec made 22 saves for the Predators, who lost for the first time in three games.Hurricanes 4, Capitals 3, OTWASHINGTON Jeff Skinner scored three goals, including the winner in overtime, and Anton Khudobin made 38 saves in his first start in 2 1/2 months in the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 win over the Washington Capitals. Skinner took a pass from Ryan Murphy to cap a 3-on-1 break at 1:20 of the extra period for his 19th goal of the season. Manny Malhotra also scored for the Hurricanes, who have won two in a row after a five-game losing streak. With Cam Ward out with a lower body injury, Khudobin saw his first NHL action since Oct. 13. Khudobin had been out with a lower body injury and was recalled Tuesday after a two-game conditioning assignment in the AHL.Islanders 3, Blackhawks 2, OTUNIONDALE, N.Y. Kyle Okposo scored 58 seconds into overtime, and the New York Islanders beat the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2 after blowing a two-goal lead. One day after Okposo was disappointed by not being chosen for the U.S. Olympic team, he snapped a drive past goalie Corey Crawford drawing chants of U-S-A! U-S-A! as he was interviewed on the ice. Casey Cizikas scored in his 100th NHL game, and Thomas Vanek added a goal for the Islanders. Defenseman Andrew MacDonald had two assists, and Evgeni Nabokov made 37 saves.

Kyle Turris stole the puck and passed to MacArthur, who scored and helped the Senators win for the third straight time. They had not won back-to-back games in nearly seven weeks prior to the second win of their current streak. Milan Michalek and Zack Smith also scored for the Senators, who have four wins in their past five games. Dustin Byfuglien, Evander Kane and Olli Jokinen scored for the Jets and Al Montoya made 25 saves.Wild 4, Sabres 1ST. PAUL, Minn.

SPORTSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFRIDAY, JANUARY3, 2014 B5 Associated PressFlorida State defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt speaks during a news conference Thursday in Newport Beach, Calif. Florida State is scheduled to play Auburn on Monday in the BCS national championship. Area boys teams use data to rate effect SEANARNOLD CorrespondentCoaches of all sports at all levels are often finding new ways to quantify and analyze their players performances. The right kind of stat can help a team discover previously hidden efficiencies or deficiencies, provide input for the allotment of playing time or even reveal contributions from a player that extend beyond the attention-grabbing headlines. While basketball is full of well-known statistics, its fast pace, frequent substitutions and team-oriented nature can make it difficult to go beyond conventional measures, especially at the high school level. In county boys hoops, coaches meet this challenge with limited resources, while attempting to prioritize the stats most relevant to their efforts. At Crystal River, head coach Steve Feldman and his staff have tried quantifying what are best called hustle or effort stats, which include counting how often a player makes it back into his defensive position before an opponent crosses half court. Jim Ervin, the boys head coach at Seven Rivers Christian, which has enjoyed years of standout play from its guards, pays close attention to his players turnovers-to-assists ratio, which is a telling efficiency stat for his offenses. With a $10 iPad app, Lecantos first-year head coach Jeffrey Anderson is taking the process from the analog to the digital. Anderson uses an app called iScout to track every substitution, shot location and otherwise measurable event in a game. Thanks to the work of his student managers during games, Anderson is able to access the numbers, automatically crunched and organized, immediately after any game, giving him a deeper peek into his teams successes and struggles on a per-possession basis. The great thing about this stat program is it really leans toward a college or NBA system, said Anderson, who especially values the ability to see what each group of five players on the court are contributing compared to other lineup configurations. Anderson goes further with it by punching the relevant stats into an algorithm he learned from Bert Jenkins, the former longtime head basketball coach at Gulfport High School in Mississippi, where Anderson was an assistant. He figured out a mathematical equation that takes all of a players negatives and positives and includes their minutes, Anderson explained, and it shows how they grade out each game. Its the same as the NBA index, but he changed it so it would give a number similar to a school grade. The numbers get posted near the entry to the locker room, giving each player a per-game grade for his performance. The system has also helped Anderson make decisions on changes in his rotation. Just because you score a lot of points, doesnt mean youre going to receive a 96, said Anderson, noting the drop in individual grades in his teams loss against Dunnellon.Holiday tourney roundup Citrus senior Devin Pryor averaged 18 points over three games in earning all-tournament honors in the Jim Clark Holiday Classic Basketball Tournament at Bishop Moore Catholic School in Orlando. In the tournament, the Hurricanes (11-2) lost just their second game of the season to Kissimmees Poinciana, a 13-2 Class 6A squad, by a score of 74-56, but took third overall with a pair of wins over Orlandos East River and Masters Academy of Oviedo. CHS junior Desmond Franklin combined for 53 points in the tournament. The Canes recently welcomed back junior forward Sam Franklin, who officially returned on Dec. 28 after completing a six-week suspension for a punch he threw in a playoff football game at Springstead. Franklin was a standout rebounder and shotblocker at Crystal River the past two seasons, and is now making his way into the Citrus rotation. Hes been coming off the bench in the middle of the first quarter, CHS head coach Tom Densmore said, and he brings a new level of energy, for sure. CHS takes on Eustis (9-3), a regional finalist last season, today at 3 p.m. in the Hurricane gym. Crystal River senior captain Hunter Roessler chipped in a team-high 17 points to help his Piraters (3-9) snap a fivegame losing streak with a 4942 win over Belleview in the Chick-Fil-A Holiday Tourney at The Villages last Friday. Lecanto (7-6) enjoyed one of its better recent displays on offense as junior Darius Sawyer (19 points), freshman Kaine McColley (18 points) and senior point guard Thomas Vilardi (16 points) all put up double-digit scoring in a 75-66 win over East Lake of Tarpon Springs in the Chris Nichols Holiday Classic in the Panther gym last Saturday. LHS knocked down buzzerbeaters at the end of each of the first three quarters, the last one coming on a long 3 from sophomore Matteo Loiero. Lecanto finished 11 for 18 from 3-point range. Now that weve finally started focusing on our offensive stuff, its finally starting to click with them, Anderson said of his team. It showed against East Lake. We made the extra pass instead of just jacking it up. Junior guard Cory Weiand and Warriors senior Adam Gage accounted for 56 of Seven Rivers Christians 58 points in a 58-51 triumph over Class 4A Melbourne West Shore in the Bronson Holiday Tournament last Friday. Weiand went 18 of 19 on free throws in scoring a team-high 32 points, while Gage added 16 boards and five assists. The Warriors play host to a much-improved Dunnellon squad (8-5) tonight at 7 p.m. Its the fifth SRCS opponent thats at least two classifications above the 2A Warriors.Per-game leadersPoints Adam Gage, SR 26.4; Cory Weiand, SR 21.3; Devin Pryor, Cit 20.4; Darius Sawyer, Lec 17.3; Brandon Burich, Lec 17.1;Desmond Franklin, Cit 14.4; Ty Reynolds, CR 12.3; Hunter Roessler, CR 11.0; Ben Janicki, Cit 10.1; Kaine McColley, Lec 8.5.

Saturdays event begins the second half of the season with only a month remaining before state series. Were definitely looking toward districts, Roberts explained. At this point were just hoping to wrestle ourselves back into shape. Were in the same shape as anyone else, Roberts said. Last week, I thought a lot of our younger guys benefitted with a lot more 1-on-1 time. The emphasis down the stretch is to get tougher matches, he said. Weve still got holes in the lineup at 106, 113, 195 and 220. Whoever we bring is going to wrestle in at least one match this weekend.

Canes, Panthers back in action Citrus at Springstead; Lecanto in Lakeland Associated PressNEWPORT BEACH, Calif. Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston and the Florida State offense have gotten most of the attention leading up to the BCS championship game. The Seminoles defense is just as good or even better. And the defense has done it with a new scheme and a new coordinator who was a high school assistant only seven years ago. Defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt has turned the Seminoles into the No. 1 scoring defense in the nation despite a roster that lost seven defenders to the NFL draft in April. The defense will get its moment in the spotlight Monday night when No. 1 Florida State faces No. 2 Auburn. Jeremy Pruitt doing a great job at Florida State is no surprise to me at all, said Alabama coach Nick Saban, who hired Pruitt as director of player development in 2007. He did a fantastic job here for us, regardless of what his role was. Did a great job of coaching our secondary. I certainly felt like because he had been a coordinator in high school, he had a really good, sort of, big-picture view of things, that he would make a really, really good coordinator. He certainly understood our system very well and would be able to apply our system here, and actually thought he could do that for us here. It doesnt surprise me at all that hes doing extremely well there with their defensive players because he did a fantastic job here. Pruitt was charged with installing a complicated hybrid 3-4 scheme to replace the 4-3 run by former coordinator Mark Stoops. Its an aggressive, blitzing system that can send anyone after the quarterback. The team has 33 sacks, but cornerback Lamarcus Joyner leads the team with 5.0. The Seminoles lead the nation with 25 interceptions from 16 different players. Defenders love the scheme because it allows anyone to make plays. I like the aggressiveness of it, defensive end Christian Jones said. We blitz a lot. We show a lot of blitz and then we drop. If you dont know too much about our defense, it can really mess you up. Linebacker Telvin Smith added: The dynamic features of it that so many times and so many different situations, each guy can come off and make a play. It makes sense that the Florida State secondary would excel considering Pruitt learned from Saban, widely considered the best secondary coach in college football. Thats why there wasnt a ton of risk moving Pruitt from director of player development to defensive backs coach after three seasons. That unit was Sabans specialty as Pruitt was still better known for his recruiting prowess. When I was offered the job, I just wanted to be a part of an organization, Pruitt said. I wanted to go work for Coach Saban. I wanted to be one of Coach Sabans guys, for a guy that was a high school coach. Its been eight years ago Im lining off fields, Im washing practice uniforms, Im going to pick guys up. ... To sit here and say Im going to be here today, no, I didnt dream of it. Pruitt, a son of a football coach, credits those days coaching Hoover High School in Alabama for his rise. He said high school coaches are the best teachers because they have to mold a player from scratch. In a sense, Pruitt had to do the same to fit a roster recruited for a 4-3 to play 3-4. Florida State plays a lot of downs with four linemen, but thats the complexity of the system along with having versatile players like Jones, Mario Edwards Jr., Smith, Jalen Ramsey and Joyner. The call isnt necessarily dictated by personnel which should come in handy against a fast-paced Auburn team. Things didnt really begin to gel for the Seminoles until after the 48-34 win against Boston College when Jones moved to defensive end and Joyner moved to nickelback. Safety Terrence Brooks, who graduated from Dunnellon High School, said the complexity of the system was difficult to grasp, but Pruitt had a way of explaining it. Just seeing how much he broke it down and really made us understand just why we were doing each position or why we were doing certain things, Brooks said. It was just amazing to see how much he can, I couldnt even explain it. They really break it down, every play they do, tendencies, where people line up. Its really crazy, but just buying into it and just seeing how many plays we were making in practice just by doing his defense. It was amazing. That right there made us all buy in so fast. It actually made me want to learn it more. Florida State defense shines under coordinator Pruitt Hes their guy
B6FRIDAY, JANUARY3, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFOOTBALL 49ers the pick at Lambeau Field over Pack Saints tabbed to upset Eagles in Philadelphia Associated PressTheres only one road favorite for this weekends wild-card games, and its the team that lost barely in last Februarys Super Bowl. That the San Francisco 49ers are favored at Lambeau Field migh t be shocking to some. It shouldnt be. The 49ers (No. 3, AP Pro32) are 2 1/2-point choices over the Packers (No. 11, AP Pro32) and, frankly, its surprising the spread isnt higher. Obviously, the oddsmakers put plenty of stock in Aaron Rodgers being back behind center for Green Bay on Sunday. But if they are also counting on Lambeau being a decidedly strong venue for the Packers, they shouldnt. Green Bay (8-7-1) was 4-3-1 at home and lost to the best teams it faced there, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Plus, the Niners (12-4) are one of the strongest wild-card teams in recent NFL history. They have no fear of going on the road, where they were 6-2. And they beat Green Bay at Candlestick Park to start the season. Green Bay is a completely different team than the team we saw in Week 1, as we are, wide receiver Anquan Boldin said. For us, we would like to carry that momentum. We are in a sixgame winning streak. Make it seven. BEST BET:, 49ERS 37-27 No. 7 New Orleans (plus 2 1/2) at No. 10 Philadelphia, Saturday Now for an entirely different scenario: New Orleans is one of the leagues most uncomfortable road teams. The Saints (11-5) were perfect at home, but things were difficult away from the Big Easy, where they were 3-5. Those shortcomings were especially on display against playoff-quality opponents Seattle, New England and Carolina, although only the loss to the Seahawks was a rout. What the Saints have going for them is experience. What the Eagles (10-6) have going for them are the positive vibes from a turnaround season under new coach Chip Kelly. But look for Philly to have just enough of a case of nerves for Drew Brees and company to win in a shootout. UPSET SPECIAL: SAINTS, 37-33 No. 9 Kansas City (plus 2 1/2) at No. 8 Indianapolis, Saturday These teams met in Arrowhead Stadium just two weeks ago and the Colts dominated after a slow start, winning 23-7. Kansas City, after a 9-0 start, finished with an 11-5 record and struggled against some quality opponents in that closing stretch. In fact, the only wins came against weaklings Oakland and Washington. Still, the Chiefs are talented and well coached, if not as healthy as theyd like to be. Indianapolis (11-5) has had some forgettable performances to go with a bunch of impressive results. If it can protect Andrew Luck, Indy can repeat its wins over the Seahawks, Broncos and 49ers merely the top three teams in the AP Pro32. If not, the Colts might replicate losses to the Rams and Dolphins. COLTS, 23-20 No. 13 San Diego (plus 7) at No. 6 Cincinnati, Sunday Another club with a spotless home record, the Bengals (11-5) are the biggest favorite for the weekend. They won at San Diego on Dec. 1, and theyve scored at least 34 points in each of their last five home games. Cincinnati averaged 34 points in the Jungle this season. With the leagues third-ranked defense, all the Bengals need to do is protect the ball, which can be a problem for inconsistent quarterback Andy Dalton. He was picked off four times last Sunday in the win over Baltimore. San Diego (9-7) closed with four wins to sneak off with the final AFC wild card. The Chargers can score and have a pretty balanced offense. But the defense is vulnerable through the air, which could make A.J. Green unstoppable. BENGALS, 30-20 Associated PressSan Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick (7)leads his 49ers into an NFC wild card playoff game at Green Bay on Sunday. Associated PressORLANDO UCF began the 2013 football season as an afterthought. The afterthought is now the new flavor of the month. With its 52-42 upset of sixthranked Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl, the No. 15 Knights posted their first 12-season in school history to cap a season that has turned into UCFs national coming out party. Whats more, UCF may have finally poked a hole in the in-state paradigm perennially dominated by Florida State, Florida and Miami. I tell you, we had every big win in the school history this year, UCF coach George OLeary said. I think they had resiliency about them. Something you really cant coach. You can coach playing hard, but playing hard when things arent going well is most difficult. I think they accomplished that. Entering the season the expectation was that UCF would be just another also-ran in a new, hybrid American Athletic Conference that already included last years BCS darling Louisville and its preseason Heisman hopeful Teddy Bridgewater. But after a narrow early-season loss to South Carolina, the Knights upset the then-top 10 ranked Cardinals as part of a nine-game winning streak to end the season. Running back Storm Johnson, who rushed for 124 yards and three touchdowns in the Fiesta Bowl victory, said the Knights embraced their underdog tag all season. It makes it so sweet. Hard work is hard to hide. We tell everybody that, he said. The sky is the limit. We have been telling people that all year and we just followed through. Perhaps the biggest part of that UCFs run was junior quarterback and Fiesta Bowl offensive MVP Blake Bortles. In his second year as the Knights starter, Bortles was the constant in helping his team survive in seven games decided by seven or few points. Throwing for more than 3,500 yards and 25 touchdowns this season, Bortles NFL draft rose with every UCF win. With some projections now putting him as potentially one of the first quarterbacks taken should he choose to skip his senior season, what he decides by the Jan. 15 early entry deadline now take takes center stage. Bortles met with OLeary in the weeks prior to the bowl game, and OLeary said the plan was for him to look at an evaluation from NFL personnel before he made a decision. I said before the game that I have no idea. I still have no idea, Bortles said. I cant even begin to contemplate that decision because I am so proud to be part of this journey, this program and this university. The Knights lose just seven scholarship seniors this offseason. Three of those are starting offensive linemen, but clearly Bortles decision will have the most impact on them entering 2014. Both quarterbacks behind Bortles on the Knights roster Justin Holman and Pete DiNovo are freshmen.

No. 15 UCF defeated No. 6 Baylor 52-42. Clemson, OSU set for Orange Bowl Associated PressMIAMI GARDENS Ohio States Urban Meyer has never had any issue acclimating to the biggest stages in college football. Clemsons Dabo Swinney is sounding like someone whos getting comfortable under the brightest lights as well. Meyer has coached in four previous BCS games. Hes never lost. Swinney has taken his team to the BCS one other time, and lost by 37 points. Of course, come tonight, none of that will matter. The seventh-ranked Buckeyes (12-1) and the 12thranked Tigers (10-2) will be squaring off in the Orange Bowl, where Meyer will aim to keep his BCS record perfect and Swinney will try to have his team, as he put it, continue to climb the mountain. When you have an opportunity to come to a BCS ball game and lose it, you want to get back and have another opportunity, Swinney said Thursday. Theres only six teams, I think, in the country that have been in two BCS bowls the last three years, and were one of them. So its a great opportunity for us to have a chance to win one. Meyer would say the same thing. His team had visions of playing in Pasadena, Calif. for the BCS national championship next week, but the loss in the Big Ten title game the first under Meyer in 25 games since he took over in Columbus knocked the Buckeyes out of the title picture. So instead, Ohio State headed to South Florida, where Meyer will look to add the Orange Bowl to his BCS collection that already includes two titlegame wins and a Sugar Bowl victory while at Florida, and a Fiesta Bowl triumph from when he coached Utah. Its a chance to go compete, Meyer said. Whether its checkers or ping pong, were going to try to win the game. Our job every time we keep score is to win. Its the mentality we try to create within our program. Whether its the Orange Bowl, whether its the eighth game of the season, were trying to win the game. Clemson lost the Orange Bowl two years ago to West Virginia, 70-33 the game turning when the Tigers fumbled the ball away in the second quarter, on a play where they would have taken the lead. Instead, the floodgates opened. The Tigers are 21-4 since. This team has more than responded, Swinney said. Heres some things to watch in the Orange Bowl:The QB battleTickets to the Orange Bowl arent inexpensive, but the shows that Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd and Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller can put on may make the admission price seem like a bargain. Boyd has accounted for 38 touchdowns this season; Miller has scored 32 with either his arm or his feet. Its Boyds finale; it may be Millers as well if he elects to go pro, as some expect he may.Buckeye DIf theres a weakness on a team thats 24-1 in the past two seasons, it may be Ohio States pass defense. Each of the Buckeyes last four opponents have completed at least 60 percent of their passes, throwing for 1,363 yards in that stretch. And with that side of the ball dealing with some injury concerns for the Orange Bowl, its clearly to Clemsons advantage.

NEW YORK On the premiere, airing Sunday at 9 p.m. on PBS, Lady Mary Crawley has buckled under the weight of widowhood six months after her husband, Matthew, perished in a car crash. Inconsolable at the start of the episode, Mary (played by Michelle Dockery) dismisses their infant son as a poor little orphan. Her father, Lord Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville), wrestles with business pressures: the death of Matthew and the absence of a will have thrown the Downton manor, already financially fragile, into further crisis. Meanwhile, the modern world of 1922 bears down on the Downton hidebound. Just consider the encroachment of an electric mixer, the newest threat to the culinary status quo over which Mrs. Patmore reigns in the kitchen. Even so, Mrs. Patmore remains squat, high-strung yet unbending under the pressures of keeping the Downton nobility well-fed. In a recent interview, Lesley Nichol, who plays her, recalls filming the series original episode with Mrs. Patmore shouting at everybody and being horrible. As an actor you go, Is she just a plain, nasty piece of work? But Nichol says she was set straight by the series historical adviser, who reminded her that the character is solely responsible for the food in that house. If you go to dinner at Downton, Characters from Charles Schulzs Peanuts comic strip characters will come alive in the musical Youre a Good Man, Charlie Brown playing on the Art Center Theatre stage the weekends of Jan. 10 through 19.

Though he is considered a good man by his friends, Charlie Brown (Brady Lay), cant seem to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl (Sharon Vetter), nor his friend Lucy (Sandy Mosley), who has a big crush on the piano-playing Schroeder (Gary Ammerman). Meanwhile Snoopy (Chris Venable) and Linus (Tom Venable) daydream as the rest of Charlies friends battle with kites, school, baseball and misunderstandings. In song and dialogue, the characters go through their days, their experiences and their hopes and dreams before they all finally come to realize what makes them truly happy.

Mary has lived many years in Europe and South America, as well as several other states in this country. She studied art and languages at Bowling Green State University in Ohio before raising her six children and two stepchildren, who are all now attending to their own successful lives. She is a member of the Ocala Art Group, Gallery East, the Mural Masters of Marion County and the Florida Watercolor Society. Art and painting is my necessary outlet for thoughts, ideas, interests, passions, and emotions, Trowbridge said. When I begin a painting, although I have a plan, I dont know exactly where it will end, but have an idea I want to express. Each brushstroke leads me in a new direction until I surprise myself with the glimpse of an end result. I can take it from there, she continued. I have been drawing and painting all my life, but a few classes in watercolor in the 1990s made me focus on a true love the surprising actions of the watercolor medium. It can be controlled to a point, but the final painting is a partnership between the elusive qualities of watercolor and me, and thats what I love about it. Trowbridge has shown in many exhibitions in Ohio and Florida, winning many prizes and awards, and her works are included in private and public collections throughout the country, including Ohio Government offices. You can view samples of Trowbridges artwork at www.galleryeastfl.org. In the coming months, the Nature Coast public will have many occasions to view firsthand the work of talented artists from this area and beyond, and make purchases of pieces of original art. The Nature Coast Painters will present a month-long exhibit of various media at the Brannen Bank in Dunnellon. This exhibit runs from Jan. 2 to 31. From Jan. 18 to 19, the annual Manatee Festival will be held in Crystal River.

C2FRIDAY, JANUARY3, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEONTHESCENE its got to be the best youve ever had. Sometimes people are harsh because they need things to be right. That was a key ingredient for playing Mrs. Patmore, but the recipe keeps the pressure on Nichol to look authentic doing it, because viewers are looking for mistakes they are! With a lifetime of credits that include the musical Mamma Mia! and the films East Is East and its sequel, West Is West, Nichol must rely on her acting chops to be convincing as a cook, because (she readily confesses) she isnt one in real life: While her husband likes to throw dinner parties, Im front-of-the-house, she explains with a laugh. I do the talking and the pouring of the drinks. Its no secret that Downton Abbey has dined out on startling success from almost the first moment it hit the air in Britain in 2010 (three months before its U.S. debut). It has gained a firm foothold in the culture, won 10 Emmys and two Golden Globes, and found a robust audience that rose to the challenge of calling it Downton, not Downtown. Last seasons finale drew 8.2 million U.S. viewers, most of them left shattered by Matthews demise as they faced the long wait to see how the Downton elite and underclass would cope. In November there was a bit of good news for rabid fans with the announcement that, yes, next year there will be a fifth season. That news freed viewers to fret about their favorite shows fate beyond 2015: How many years will Downton carry on? Just ask Downton executive producer Gareth Neame. Everybody else has. We know theres going to be more than five, he replies patiently, and I know theres going to be less than 10. I dont know what happens between now and then. Neame is the managing director of London-based Carnival Films and a Downton executive producer who, a few years ago, put the show in motion over dinner with Julian Fellowes, the Oscar-winning writer of the 2001 murder mystery Gosford Park. Neame was a fan of that ensemble drama, set at an English country house in the 1930s where a party of wealthy Brits and their servants convened for a shooting weekend. He proposed that Fellowes create a series with the same social stratification, politesse and melodrama. Its starting point was rolled back to the eve of World War I. With Carnival (whose credits include such series as Jeeves and Wooster, Traffik and Whitechapel) set to produce, Neame sold Downton to the British commercial network ITV. I wanted to position the show on a very broad mainstream entertainment channel, he says. But in the U.S., no commercial networks were biting (ironically, not even NBC, whose parent company owns Carnival Films). Neame found a buyer instead in public televisions Masterpiece anthology. But it goes without saying the series caught on far beyond that in more than 200 countries. Theyre crazy for it in China, marvels Nichol, who found out firsthand on a visit there: Ive seen me speaking Mandarin! The show is everything Id hoped for, times 100, says Neame. But when success is multiplied, so, often, is accompanying pressure. Theres such an insatiable demand for the show. So much is expected of it! Neame works closely on the story lines with Fellowes, whom he credits as the sole writer and the creator of the show while describing his own role as ultimate custodian of the whole thing. Julian and I are making the show we want to make, he says. Its our cup of tea. We make it for us, and then, hopefully, people will come along. But at some point in the nottoo-very-distant future, those people will be forced to say goodbye. Then Lady Mary, Lord Robert, Mrs. Patmore and the rest will be consigned to viewers memories (and reruns, of course). There are only seven stories, says Neame, citing a familiar literary thesis, and I think the challenge with a longrunning TV show is to retell those seven stories without anyone noticing. But there could come a time where well be going, What do we do now? And I dont want to get to that place. I think the show is in very good health at the moment, he declares. But people should enjoy it while its there. It wont be there forever.

President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his wife, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, served in their roles the longest of any American presidential family.

Paul Toddto perform Jan. 19. Special to the ChronicleCitrus Countys Operation Welcome Home (OWH), a nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring local citizens returning from the war on terrorism in Afghanistan, recently conducted two ceremonies for veterans. On Nov. 2, American Legion Post 155 hosted a dinner and ceremony for Marine Corps Lance Corporal Dan Beatty, returning from service with 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines. A graduate of Crystal River High School, Beatty received numerous tokens of appreciation from OWH, local veterans and private organizations. On Nov. 22, VFW Post 4252 hosted a similar function for two soldiers. Army Specialist William K emp, a graduate of Lecanto High School, was honored for serving more than eight years at locations including Afghanistan, Bulgaria and Germany. In Afghanistan, he was a company commander for personal security, where he conducted 700 combat convoy missions. He has left the service and currently attends college while locally employed. Also recognized at this ceremony was Army Staff Sgt. Ken Patterson, who was a machine gunner on Ch-47 Chinook helicopters. He served three tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and in 2009 was deployed to Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, where he was severely wounded in a Taliban ambush. Patterson lost his left foot and his right leg below the knee. His fellow soldiers, heroes who saved his life, carried him to a hideout. Fortunately, a Black Hawk helicopter arrived to evacuate everyone about 10 minutes after the attack, but Patterson spent the next three years recovering at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. He retired this year from the Army and will shortly become a Citrus County resident. Barbara Mills, president of OWH, presented a large basket filled with donations at the ceremony from local businesses and vete rans organizations. John Stewart, OWH master of ceremonies, spoke at length about local support for veterans and his desire to see more citizens outside veterans organizations not only attending the functions, but getting involved with the support of local veterans organizations and functions. Take a look at these two heroes honored tonight, he said. Over 700 combat convoy missions by Specialist Kemp. The loss of two limbs by SSgt Patterson. This heroic service demands that every citizen in this county be in attendance, or have sent some sort token of appreciation for the sacrifices of American heroes fighting to maintain our freedoms.

C6FRIDAY, JANUARY3, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT One of the arts of defense is painting the wrong picture of a deal for declarer. He thinks the cards lie one way when they actually lie differently. The International Bridge Press Association Gidwani Family Trust Defense of the Year award was won by Fredrik Nystrom from Sweden. The journalist prize went to Micke Melander from Sweden. The deal occurred during the 2012 World Mind Sports Games (formerly World Team Olympiad) final in Lille, France. (These were held too late to be considered for that years awards.) A natural auction led to Souths playing in four hearts. West led his third-highest club. The contract did not look too testing. South, expecting to lose at most two hearts and one diamond, won with dummys club ace (East dropped the queen, promising the jack as well) and played a trump to his king. West took his ace and returned a low club. Declarer ruffed away Easts jack and continued with the heart jack. What did Nystrom (East) do after winning with his queen? South, Cezary Balicki from Poland, the worlds 14th-ranked player, needed to get to his hand to draw Easts last trump. We can see that he could have done that in diamonds. However, East cashed his diamond ace, then led his spade nine. To declarer, it looked as though East had begun with a singleton diamond ace. South, thinking that he had to enter his hand by ruffing the third round of spades, won with dummys spade queen and tried to cash the spade ace. Easts ruff was a considerable shock.** (MSNBC) 42 41 42 P o liti cs N a ti on (N)H ar db a ll With Ch r i s Matthews (N) All I n With Ch r i s H ayes (N) Th e R ac h e l M a dd ow Show (N) L oc k up G L oc k up G (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Ultimate Survival Alaska PG Alaska State Troopers Alaska State Troopers Alaska State Troopers Ultimate Survival Alaska PG Alaska State Troopers (NICK) 28 36 28 35 25Sponge.Sponge.Sam & WitchThunderThunderFull HseFull HseFull HseFull HseFriendsFriends (OWN) 103 62 103 Oprah: Where Now?Oprah: Where Now?Oprah: Where Now?Oprah: Where Now?Oprahs Lifeclass (N)Oprah: Where Now?

During the evenings events, my 10-year-old nephew threw a tantrum and threatened to hurt my 1-year-old son. He said, If someone doesnt get him off of me, I am going to throw him. I called for my son to come to me, hoping that my sister would correct her sons behavior. But my son didnt move, and my nephew said again, Someone get him off, or I will throw him off. I removed my son from the situation and hoped my nephews parents would intervene, but they didnt. My wife and I talked about the situation afterward, and, being new parents, we were not sure what to do. Our conclusion was that the safety of our son is primary, and we do not want anyone threatening him in our home. Before the next family gathering at our home, we sent an invitation to my sister with the caveat that this behavior is not acceptable, saying if her son threatens ours during one of his tantrums, they would be asked to leave. She proceeded to blame my wife and me for the fracas. Since this conversation, my sister has been very divisive with my parents and their interaction with my son, carrying a sour mood with her to other family events. Were we wrong in making it clear that this behavior is not acceptable? How do we address my sisters behavior? Are we being overprotective? Concerned Parents D ear Parents: You are not overprotective, but were going to ask the obvious: Why was your son on top of your nephew, and why didnt you remove him sooner? Your nephew did not, in fact, hurt the boy, throw him off or do anything other than yell for assistance. That is when you, the parents, should have immediately removed your son in order to protect him. Were not sure what you expected your nephew to do. He may be much older than your toddler, but he is still a child. As for your sister, you cannot dictate someone elses behavior. Either invite her or dont, although you certainly can set rules in your own home about what behavior you will tolerate. D ear Annie: Could you please perform a public service about smart phones? Some people behave as if the planet belongs to them alone. They should know that (a) nobody wants to hear your personal conversation at ear-splitting volume in a public place, and (b) if you are texting while on a sidewalk, stairwell or other public thoroughfare, please lift your head and watch where you are going. Others are under no obligation to clear a pathway for you. Irritated D ear Irritated: Weve heard plenty of stories about people who are so absorbed in their texting while crossing the street that they dont notice the car coming right at them. Or they walk into walls and trip over dogs. Also, too many people think they have to shout into a cellphone, when they are perfectly audible (and much easier on the ears) at a lower volume. But of course, the worst offenders never think you mean them. We hope they see this and shape up. D ear Annie: Id like to add to your answer to Bound, Gagged and Furious, who was the victim of a home invasion. Although she and her friend seem to be taking it in stride now, it would be perfectly normal for them to have some lingering trauma after the adrenaline and attention have subsided. People routinely seek counseling for less intense events. I think theyd benefit from a couple of sessions to make sure theyre OK.
