It is going to be the coldest its been in several years, said Meteorologist Rodney Wynn of the National Weather Service office in Tampa. The front is going to move through at about 2p.m., said Wynn. Tonight (Sunday) temperatures will be 58degrees, but Tuesday morning the temperature is expected to be about 28degrees. MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerLECANTO Citrus County Property Appraiser Geoff Greene was found dead at his home Sunday afternoon of an apparent suicide, authorities said. Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputies responded to the County Road 491 home that Greene, 63, shared with his wife, Sheila, shortly before 3p.m. Greene, elected to office in 2008 and then re-elected without opposition in 2012, was dead when authorities arrived. The official cause and manner of death are pending the medical examiners report, sheriffs spokeswoman Heather Yates said Sunday evening. Citrus County officials expressed shock and remorse at Greenes death. Its incredibly sad, Commissioner Joe Meek said. My thoughts and prayers go out to Sheila and his entire family. Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney said County Administrator Brad Thorpe informed commissioners of Greenes death. I dont think anybody saw that coming, Kenney said. Its sad. Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill, who had known Greene for 30years, was saddened to hear of Greenes death.

She sent him emails, thanking him for his public stances as a freshman county commissioner. Please hang in there and thanks for standing up for what is right, she wrote on Oct.22. On Nov.2, ChristopherMcPheeters, a candidate for District2 county commission, reminded Adams that she wrote a letter to the editor that was complimentary of him and that her opposition had not done that. Just thought to let you know who your friend is! she wrote to Adams. But thats all history now that ChristopherMcPheeters believes Adams is backing her political opponent, former Crystal River Mayor Ron Kitchen. Christopher-McPheeters exchanged emails with Adams shortly before New Years Day, during which she accused Adams of supporting an unnamed candidate, who ChristopherMcPheeters identified in an interview as Kitchen. Adams fired back that he hasnt publicly announced his support for anyone. He also suggested ChristopherMcPheeters withdraw from the commission race due to personal issues in her family. With qualifying still several months away, the District2 commission race has drawn four Republicans: ChristopherMcPheeters, incumbent John JJ Kenney, Kitchen and Phillip Mulrain. Christopher-McPheeters and Kitchen both lost in the District1 race to incumbent Dennis Damato in 2012. Both candidates now have home addresses in District2, comprised of the Homosassa-Sugarmill Woods area. On Dec. 30, Christopher-McPheeters sent Adams an email in all capital letters that stated: It is my understanding that you have not been neutral about this District3, 2014 Citrus County commissioner race, if this is true, it is a most unfair stance, as you are supposed to be representing all of the voters in Citrus County including myself! Adams response, the next morning, stated that the only public statements he had made as a commissioner is he wouldnt be supporting incumbents. Adams then made reference to a recent Republican event, where ChristopherMcPheeters sat at a table with Adams and his wife. He wrote: After you asking to sit with me and my wife and voluntary telling us about the legal and personal problems with your husband and stepson that we did not want to know about and complaining who was allowed to say the Lords Prayer I would suggest you take some time to get your personal life together before running for county commissioner. Adams added: That would be best for all citizens of the county at this time as there is no way you could be a good commissioner with all your personal problems. Im praying for you and your family that things work out. Intelligence process A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerSheriff Jeff Dawsy has been at the helm of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office for a generation now, but that has not dulled his desire for evolution. From the agencys introduction of IntelligenceLed Policing tactics a few years ago to the purchase of equipment he deems imperative in any modern police organization, Dawsy seems to push the envelope every year. And this year is no different. Dawsy said effective Jan.1, Fire Rescue will become an independent unit administrated under the aegis of the sheriffs office. He calls it the evolution of the learning curve for the new leadership of fire rescue. Its been more than two years since fire rescue folded into the sheriffs office, with Dawsy vowing to cut costs but expand services. He has since delivered by opening up several more full-time fire stations serving far-flung areas of the county, and firefighters are now equipped to render some medical aid to emergency victims before EMS gets there. Several deputies have cross-trained as firefighters, including himself. In this conversation with the Chronicle, Dawsy weighs in on various topics including the county broaching the idea of selling the jail to CCA.CHRONICLE: Its a new year and new challenges for your office. What looms large and needs immediate attention? DAWSY: They are there and we are resolving them, but it will take a while. Its primarily equipment and adequate staffing (Fire Rescue) in certain places. The new chief and his new administration are doing well, but we have the funding thanks to the citizens of our community to whereas we can ensure that end of it. On the law enforcement end, you know weve been in this process now in my 18th year as the sheriff. We have followed the same pattern we have given to law enforcement on equipment and staffing. But I think we will be continuing the ILP (Intelligence-Led Policing) process. The dynamics of that is that the men and women on the street tell me what they are seeing and out of that we make the priorities of what we want to attack. I would say the global answer for a law enforcement/public safety/fire organization is public safety and making sure we do a great outreach to the citizens and is what we do. CHRONICLE: What role will Intelligence-Led Policing (ILP) play within this agency in the new year? DAWSY: Well, the foundation we are on right now. One of the things, I guess having the length of time in this office is that we evolve. We evolved from community-orientated policing, which we are still part of, and then Sheriff announces structural change at agency MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCitrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy, in his 18th year as sheriff, says his offices main priority is public safety.

ONLINE POLL RESULTS From wire reports A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVERSpirit continues to endure and may make another appearance soon to showcase the boat-building in a past century. Spirit is a replica of Civil War-era scow that was christened this past October after volunteers affiliated with Crystal River Boat Builders painstakingly took more than two years to hand-build the vessel. Volunteers also kept to the spirit of the times by using tools relevant to the period and, off course, no electricity. The boat measures 36 feet long and 12 feet wide when it was lowered into the Crystal River, but it still needed sails. We have been working mostly on sailing details, said Steve Kingery, president of the boat builders group. The lines are up and we did work on the rudder. We have just been doing a lot of small detail work, Kingery added. The work on the sails should be completed soon, Kingery said. The group plans to display the scow for visitors to the Manatee Festival, set for Jan. 18 and 19. And, Kingery thinks not long after that Spirit could be ready to sail and be moored for its intended use as an educational exhibit at the Crystal River Preserve State Park. Scows were the workhorses of the shipping industry from the middle centuries and into the 1900s. They mainly are based on the design of the old Dutch sailing boats of the 1500s. The boats subsequently became useful in the New World, where they would be laden with stacks of goods to ply the waters. During the Civil War, scows were reportedly effective in breaking through the blockade of the South. The group continues to raise funds for the volunteer-driven project and have been posting posting regular updates on their Facebook page. Kingery said the Facebook presence has helped publicize Crystal River and the group of dedicated heritage-keepers who have been working on the project. He said the site has had nearly 300 likes from a disparate fan base including from Facebook users in 18 different countries on all the main continents. Kingery estimates, about 60 volunteers over time have put in more than 10,000 hours of meticulous replication. For information about the project or to make a donation, visit www.tsca.net/CRBB or visit the group on Facebook at Crystal River Boat Builders. Special to the ChronicleVolunteers work to finish building a replica of a Civil War-era scow, which was christened Spirit this past October. The group plans to display the scow for visitors to the Manatee Festival, set for Jan. 18 and 19. Years in the making, replica of Civil War-era scow nearing completion Man takes deputies on high-speed chase ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerHERNANDO A Hernando man led police on a high-speed chase on U.S. 41 and multiple adjoining roads Friday before being nabbed, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. Matthew Simmons, 29, of North Railroad Way, was arrested around 8:30p.m. amid claims he traveled at a high rate of speed, eluded police and possessed drug paraphernalia. According to investigators, Simmons was traveling north on U.S.41 when law enforcement radar observed him traveling 60 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone. Reportedly, the deputy pulled behind him on the road and activated his overhead sirens. Simmons, driving a red Jeep Liberty, began accelerating and passing vehicles in a no-passing zone uphill approaching the crest of the bridge above the Withlacoochee State Trail. Simmons continued northbound, weaving in and out of traffic, at which time his speed exceeded 85 mph, according to the affidavit. The report said the deputy slowly gained on the suspect near a blind curve. When Simmons approached the intersection of U.S.41 and Independence Highway, he lost control and drove off of the roadway. The vehicle began spinning around on side of the road on the Withlacoochee State Trail. He was able to get the vehicle back on the roadway, and proceeded northbound onto Paul Drive. Reportedly, he lost control again when he attempted to turn eastbound on David Drive. As he entered the intersection of David Drive and U.S.41, he nearly collided with another vehicle traveling southbound. After eluding law enforcement through many roadways, Simmons lost control onto the property of Paul and Jerry Storage in Hernando. The report said the deputy approached the vehicle to check the well being of Simmons and any passengers when Simmons was observed scrambling out of the vehicle. The deputy ordered him to the ground; however, he charged toward the deputy. Simmons was brought to the ground; however, he resisted arrest and grabbed the deputys firearm, causing it to discharge. Simmons proceeded to run northbound through the fences in the compound of the storage units. He then jumped the fence located at the northwest corner of the business, according to the CCSO. Numerous backup units arrived on scene to assist, and Simmons was taken into custody. The affidavit states Simmons posed 43.8grams of marijuana and 1.13grams of cocaine. Simmons was treated by emergency medical services. However, he was later taken to Citrus Memorial Health System for treatment. After being discharged from the hospital, Simmons was taken to the Citrus County Detention Facility for booking and processed. Besides fleeing and eluding law enforcement, Simmons had an active misdemeanor warrant out of Marion County for drug possession and he had a suspended license, said the arrest affidavit. His bond was set at $22,000. Matthew Simmonsfaces multiple charges. State BRIEF

Matthew McConaughey, Julia Roberts, Amy Adams and Bradley Cooper were among the stars who cracked jokes and praised one another Saturday night at the opening of the Palm Springs International Film Festival, a desert warm-up of sorts for more closelywatched industry events in coming months. Honors were announced well in advance and the ceremony wasnt televised, lessening pressure on winners and allowing for self-effacing, sometimes lengthy acceptance speeches. The festival is celebrating its 25th year, but its only recently become a star-studded stop on the awards circuit. U2s Bono spoke passionately about artist activism and the fight against AIDS.

Romney told Fox News Sunday that he sees Melissa Harris-Perrys apology as sincere and is ready to move on. He says everyone himself included makes mistakes and the Romney family has forgiven MSNBC. During a segment, HarrisPerry asked her guests to talk about a photo showing infant Kieran Romney with his grandparents and their 21 other grandchildren, all of them white. One guest on her Sunday show, actress Pia Glenn sang one of these things just isnt the same. Harris-Perry later said her intention was to celebrate diversity, but the segment took an unexpected and offensive turn.Frozen freezes out Paranormal spinoffNEW YORK On a wintry weekend, Disneys Frozen retook the box-office top spot with $20.7 million, freezing out the horror spinoff Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones. Paramounts The Marked Ones debuted in second place with $18.2 million, a total that includes Thursday night screenings, according to studio estimates Sunday. The film is a stand-alone story spun off from the lucrative, low-budget horror franchise Paranormal Activity, the fifth of which will be released in October. But it wasnt able to overcome Disneys animated Frozen, which has been a hit for family audiences for the last seven weeks. It has now surpassed $600 million worldwide, making it the second highest grossing Disney Animation release, behind The Lion King. It will soon pass that films $312 million domestic haul, too. Its extremely rare for a film to lead the box office in its seventh weekend, a feat accomplished by the likes of Avatar and, to go further back, Legends of the Fall. Its rarer still for a film to retake the box-office lead so late in its theatrical run. The last movie to do so was Mel Gibsons The Passion of the Christ in 2004, according to box-office tracker Rentrak.

What do you all think about that? QUESTION OF THE WEEK Cindy Hemme It will create a lot of revenue. Smart move. All states will catch on sooner or later. Cassie Durham It would substantially decrease the dependence on prescription pills, which are widely used and abused, ruining/ending lives and ultimately costing taxpayers more than cannabis would. The war on drugs is a waste of money and an excuse to incarcerate people. Connect the dots people jeesh. and yes, cocaine starts as a plant but is adulterated with chemicals, therefore making it a drug. Coke and weed are very different. If youre trying to draw a comparison, your argument is weak at best. Tess N Jason Marcelino I think the government would be smart in each state to do so. It will be consumed either way and it will be sold either way. Legalize it and tax it! Its no worse than alcohol. Gary Wilton Colorado is too far to drive to, but hell yeah! Judith McBriar Whats the difference between recreational pot and wine and beer? And it mellows out some angry people. So whats the harm? Will Wilson Medically it should be legal everywhere. Recreational? Tax it and sell it like cigarettes, then cut income taxes with the money you generate. Cigarettes are legal and they can kill you. Why not pot? Kelley DeMaio Dumbest thing ever!

Its a big loss to me personally and to the county, she said. Greene was a political novice when he sought the property appraisers job in 2008. He won in a tough Republican primary by defeating incumbent Melanie Hensley, then sailed to victory on Election Day. He promised to bring fiscal conservative practices to the office and reduce the number of assessment appeals to the value adjustment board by working with property owners to find compromise. Greene also sought to settle lawsuits that were pending against the property appraiser when he took office. But it was his battles with Progress Energy and its successor, Duke Energy, which put Greene in the headlines the last year. Duke in 2012 and again in 2013 challenged in court Greenes taxable value of the energy complex north of Crystal River. Greene held to the belief that pollution-control equipment installed in 2009 should be assessed at full value; Duke said it should be assessed as salvage equipment and a judge in November sided with Duke. The cases were progressing; a court status hearing was scheduled for this afternoon. Kenney said Greene tried his best to win the Duke case. He was trying very, very hard to get that thing squared away, Kenney said. Im dumbfounded. He was doing the best he could for this county and nobody can fault him for that. Meek said Greene was a tireless advocate. I had so much respect for him, Meek said. He gave everything he had to the citizens of Citrus County. Kenney said Greenes death leaves a void. He loved Citrus County, he said. He still had so much to give to this community. Along with his wife of 35 years, Sheila, Greene leaves a daughter, Jennifer, and two granddaughters, Mason and Jillian.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. ChristopherMcPheeters response, an hour later, began: Thank you for your prayers also and the Good Lord told me that he is terminating you as being an impersonator of him. She told Adams he has had a multitude of personal problems and said he shouldnt judge her. It appears that you have a misconception of who God is news flash He is not yourself! she wrote. Adams blamed the disagreement on Christopher-McPheeters. You are the one that keeps calling my house, emailing me, etc. I do not think Im God so I dont know where you get that from, he wrote in response that same day. From your phone calls and emails and personal problems you have told me that I did not ask to know about is why I suggested you may not want to run at this time He concluded: Please do not keep contacting me if you dont like my opinion. Have a Happy New Year. An hour later, she returned fire: Excuse me! For contacting you as your constituent, neither shall I be seeking your endorsement, as from what I have heard, it would be detrimental, as so far as your first term has been quite a haphazard affair, quite embarrassing to watch as a constituent! ChristopherMcPheeters sent the entire string of emails to Mike Moberley, chairman of the Citrus County Republican Executive Committee, asking him to ask Adams to stay neutral in the District2 race. Neither Moberley nor Adams could be reached for comment. ChristopherMcPheeters said Adams is wrong to publicly support Kitchen. As to Adams suggestion that she drop out of the race due to personal issues, ChristopherMcPheeters said she wouldnt do that. Everyone has a personal life, she said. I have my head on straight.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. we went into problemorientated policing and now we are into the ILP which is a good thing. If you become stagnant, you truly, truly become ineffective. Well, this ILP process I see as a vision for at least the next three years and probably go on from there. And one of the nice things about Intelligence-Led Policing is that it is from the bottom up, not from the top down, and it is really designed and I know that is a word everybody uses and its a good collegiate phrase to put in the discussion, but that is what it is designed to do. It is designed for me to go into a meeting in January, which we would do, we will listen to what our officers are telling me they are experiencing there. We would look at the number and we would then develop three to four main topics we would attack. This year, we closed the books with burglary, property crimes per se, it was prescription pills and meth. It may be the same three again, but thats what is nice about it, that we have the dynamics to change those throughout the year. CHRONICLE: Going forward, its been two years since fire rescue came into the fold, but what are some of your immediate plans regarding growing that partnership? DAWSY: Well, we are doing a lot of different things. We are removing the fire service from underneath the administrative bureau effective Jan.1. They will be a stand-alone particular entity and that just basically is the evolution of the learning curve for the fire leaders. We have a new chief, but hes got 30 years experience, its not like he is a newbie and his assistant chief used to be the battalion chief that came over with me; and we have three excellent battalion chiefs, so its a new day. So, we felt very comfortable that it is time to move them to be a standalone unit within our organization. They will be into the flow. Jim Goodworth (new fire chief) will be given additional responsibilities as chief, but I think it really is the five-year plan we have come up with and credit to the leadership of the fire service. That fiveyear is to attack the great deficiencies in equipment, that is the first thing; and then we will also attack simultaneously as the county grows the need for personnel; and third will be facilities. But its not like I have to come back to the community. That money is in the budget, in the MSBU and thats the nice thing. For the next five years, 10 years down the road, the money that we had asked for is going to be able to address these issues. It is going to a stable source of revenue and then on the fire service tax, we would then take that money and thats the money we will reward the firefighters, add firefighters, pay for their retirement, the increases. And thats specifically designed that way to where its a control factor. If the money is not there and the county is not growing, then there isnt any need continuously to make it larger and larger, but as we grow and we change, we are going to need to address things. CHRONICLE: Can you share the agencys goals and challenges for 2014, beginning with the most important? DAWSY: I guess if I could say from an operationalstandpoint is our radio system. You know, we have done a great job Band-Aiding this. This is system operates 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, its over 10 years old, its on a very, uh, its not on a digital platform, its on an analog platform. All that simply means, the techies they know better than I do, moving data is a lot less efficient than it should be and being on analog, we have reception issues. There is reception issues in this area, in this community still, because, without going too techie, there is a lot of noise out there which restricts the flow. It is like the radio in your car, you know the AM/FM, sometimes, you get good reception, sometimes you dont thats because of the noise. It affects our radio the same way. Really, in downtown Inverness, we have terrible reception, we have to get to a different platform and we have to change it to be 25p25. All the system in emergency service, thats probably a $6 million hit. And I laugh at people that say government spends too much money; as soon as the radio system or is privately owned brings that $6 million down, we will buy it, but thats what we have to pay for now. CHRONICLE: What do you think about the countys concept to sell the jail to CCA? DAWSY: I think it is worth going in and looking at. I dont see, well, I dont see on two fronts: I dont see why the county wants to take the jail back over, that is a financial nightmare. Any commissioner that thinks it is a good idea has lost its mind because there is liability issue attached to it. Its old-school thinking, thinking the sheriff has to run the jail. We have been very fortunate here that we have a great warden and great administrative staff that I communicate with on a daily basis. And to assure the citizens out there, we have a good flow of communications; when that warden brings prisoners from other areas to our community, I am very well aware of it and I can either nix that prisoner coming in here or I can accept that prisoner in here. Its based on our relationship. If I think there is too much of a danger for escape for the level of prisoner coming into our community I will say no, and CCA has always abided by it. So, the long and short of the answer is: I think it is always worthwhile and I think this is more of a way of doing business that more and more communities are going to look down the road just for financialissues.

Mystie Geiger, of Dunnellon, is facing charges of two counts of child neglect without causing great bodily harm and one count of child neglect with great bodily harm. Her bond is $9,000. Reportedly, deputies were called to Geigers house after a man said he had temporary court-ordered custody of the children and he was unable to reach Geiger. She was granted visitation of the children two days per week for three weeks out of the month. The man told the deputy that Geiger had picked the children up on Dec.29 from daycare in Gainesville. Their agreement was that Geiger was to return the children on New Years Day to the daycare, which she did not, the report stated. When the man was unable to reach Geiger, he drove to her house for the children. He knocked on the door; however, no one answered. He believed that they were not home, so he waited down the road for Geiger to return. A short while later, he observed Geiger exit the front door of the residence and stumble down the stairs. She then went back inside the residence, and he elected to call law enforcement, according to the report. When deputies arrived, they found the sliding glass door open and a strong odor of urine. The deputy announced his presence, but there was no answer back. Reportedly, a 5-year-old, wearing only underwear, ran from the home to the man with custody. In the report, the deputy said he entered a bedroom of the residence and observed Geiger unconscious on an air mattress, and she appeared to have urinated all over herself and the bed. Also, laying in the urine was a 1-year-old child who appeared sluggish. The deputy ordered the complainant to retrieve the child and to take both children to his vehicle, according to the report. Unable to wake Geiger, the deputy checked the remainder of the residence and was unable to locate the third reported child. The report states that while waiting for emergency medical service to arrive, the man with custody attempted to change the diaper of the 1-year-old child. When he opened the diaper, they observed feces, urine, blood and mold inside the diaper. It had stuck to the child and he or she began to cry. The 5-year-old told the deputy he or she was hungry and had not eaten since Geiger had picked him or her up from daycare, according to CCSO. Reportedly, both children were transported to Shands Hospital in Gainesville for treatment. The other child, a 14-yearold, was not found at Geigers residence. She had called a friend on New Years Eve to pick her up. Once awoken, Geiger acknowledged who she was, said she had drank a lot of wine and didnt remember if she had fed the children. She was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility. Mystie Geigercharged with child neglect.

Page A10MONDAY, JANUARY 6, 2014 Sorry Chicken Little, the sky hasnt fallenHeadline news today: 1.3 million lose unemployment benefits after four years of payments. My wife was sad about this headline in the paper this morning, so I ran the numbers and came up with this: There are 351 million people in the United States, 168 million eligible by age and health to work. When you do the math that means seven-tenths of a percent, after four years of collecting benefits, now will have to go back to working or trying to. On Minutes they had a feature story a few months ago which mentioned two-thirds are comfortable on benefits, Medicaid and food stamps and are not even trying to work. Also, when I was a very young adult, benefits were for six months period. Whats with this four-year thing? To put this in perspective, I live in a small town in Florida and the incorporated city has a population of about 8,000. Using the same numbers and percentages, that would be the same as our newspaper headlining that five workers in Inverness lose benefits. Which will work out to three that didnt work by choice now will find a job, leaving two that are in trouble. Now in most states, they would be eligible for food stamps, Medicaid and assisted housing. OK, thats a tough life, but they have food, clothing, shelter and excellent health care covered. Is the world coming to an end? No.Frank Simonelli InvernessSleep well, ScottScott Adams must be feeling very uncomfortable. Has anyone noticed how many times Scott Adams as reminded us that his voting to move Citrus County waste disposal from the Citrus County Landfill to a company he has an ownership interest in is not a conflict of interest? Now he wants to take Hernando County out of its backup role with Citrus County in favor of his company. Of course, that wont be a conflict of interests, either. Sleep well, Scott, the state has your back regardless of what the rest of us think.D. Zeiher Crystal River This will be the year Republicans are forced to deal with the Obamacare Trap, helpfully set for them by the Democratic authors of the Affordable Care Act. In 2009 and 2010, President Obama and his party took a health care system in which 85 percent had insurance coverage, and blew it up. Now, with Obamacare causing misery right and left, those same Democrats are screaming, You cant go back! The national health care scheme they designed is so complex and has already embedded itself so deeply in the health care system, they argue, that it can never be repealed. The only course now is for lawmakers of both parties to fix Obamacares problems. The argument will be heard more and more as the burdens imposed by Obamacare canceled policies, higher premiums, higher deductibles, narrower doctor networks, restricted choices of prescription drugs and more become a reality for millions of Americans. The situation could become even more politically charged if, as many experts expect, the burdens that have so far beset those in the individual insurance market spread to the small-group market and ultimately to the larger universe of all people who receive coverage through their jobs. In such a scenario, Democrats will ratchet up their demands that Republicans join them in fixing the law. They will condemn Republicans who declare Obamacare beyond repair and decline to go along. And at the same time, Democrats will steadfastly refuse to back down in their full support of the law they and they alone passed that is causing all the trouble. The blame, they will argue, lies with the GOP Its an astonishingly brazen strategy. And it might work. Already, some Republicans appear to be wavering on the insistence that repeal must be the first step in minimizing the damage done by Obamacare. In a weird irony, the more serious the problems of Obamacare become, the less likely some Republicans are to demand repeal. Its so bad that you just cant let it happen, says one well-connected GOP strategist. My sense is, at least at this point, its gotten so bad that as much as you dont want to fix Obamacare, you just cant let the impact of this happen. Says a House Republican aide: Measures that provide Americans some form of relief from the most painful parts of Obamacare dont have to begin with repeal. Of course, many ways Republicans would want to provide Obamacare relief Michigan Rep. Fred Uptons keep-yourhealth-plan proposal, for example wont win Democratic support. But the more fixes the GOP signs on to, the more incentive Democrats have to keep stonewalling all calls for repeal. Other House Republicans are (finally) uniting behind an actual repeal-and-replace proposal. H.R. 3121 is the work of the Republican Study Committee, and, like another effort by GOP Rep. Tom Price of Georgia, would both repeal Obamacare and enact a package of Republican health care reforms. It would address the tax unfairness of purchasing health coverage for those who are not covered at work; the problem of pre-existing conditions; the purchase of coverage across state lines and excessive medical malpractice settlements. So far, 117 House Republicans have signed onto the bill. But 115, including the House GOP leadership, have not. And it is not clear whether passing an Obamacare alternative one that begins with repeal is really a priority for Speaker John Boehner and other top House Republicans. For example, on NBC recently, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan expressed satisfaction with the recent budget deal because Republicans dont want to have shutdown drama so that we can focus on replacing Obamacare. That sounds like Ryan wants to pass an alternative. But while Ryan encourages Republicans to come up with conservative solutions, theres no evidence he wants to throw his weight behind any one bill. In fact, in private discussions, House Republicans stress their differences over the details of an Obamacare alternative. For example, theres no agreement on precisely how to fix the tax inequity for people who dont receive health coverage at work. There are similar disagreements over all sorts of other points of policy. Getting unanimity is a tall order for a divided, leaderless party, says the GOP aide. Meanwhile, Obamacare threatens to turn into an enormous, rolling disaster. While Americans suffer, Republicans could find themselves arguing with each other, hung up on details, divided over the next step and under pressure to endorse Democratic fixes to a law they never supported in other words, deep inside the Obamacare Trap.Byron York is chief political correspondent for The Washington Examiner.

Wouldnt you proceed cautiously, documenting every step of the process if only to practice that timehonored tradition of CYA? It seems like the commonsense course of action. Unfortunately, state legislators who worked on Floridas once-adecade redistricting dont share the thought. They admitted that some records being sought in a lawsuit challenging the 2012 redrawing of political boundaries were destroyed. The destruction was done, they said, according to policy. Hogwash. Florida has an extensive public records law and pages upon pages of rules about records retention and disposition. Lots of rules, sometimes confusing. Even so, is it reasonable to think that documents associated with redistricting which essentially determines how politics are played in this state should not be retained as long as, for example, proclamations (two calendar years), parking decal/permit records (two fiscal years) postage/shipping records (three fiscal years), or local government mileage reports (five fiscal years)? Harriet Beecher Stowe said that common sense is the knack of seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done. Thats the point: whats happening isnt the way things ought to be done. Our Sunshine laws were created to put a stop to the publics business being conducted in the shade to the benefit of those in power. Well, the thinking goes, if you cant conduct public business in private, the next best thing is to arrange for your side to get most of the seats at the table. It happens every 10 years, and both parties have tried to do it. At the heart of the issue are Florida Constitution changes approved by voters in 2010 regarding how to conduct the redrawing of legislative and congressional district boundaries. The new constitutional language says, in part, No apportionment plan or district shall be drawn with the intent to favor or disfavor a political party or an incumbent; and districts shall not be drawn with the intent or result of denying or abridging the equal opportunity of racial or language minorities to participate in the political process. The legislatures first effort at district mapping in 2012 was rejected by the Florida Supreme Court, which found that the state Senate map was drawn to favor incumbents and rife with improper intent. The court made them rework it. Now, Floridas League of Women Voters (LWV) is in Leon County Circuit Court saying that the existing Senate mapping is still infected with intentional bias. In connection with the suit, they recently won an opinion from the Florida Supreme Court establishing that lawmakers can be made to testify about how they drew the new districts. Also, the LWV requested documents about the process but legislators say those documents were destroyed. The LWV insists that Florida voters should be up in arms about these missing records. We agree with Florida LWV president Dierdre Macnab, who wrote that its just another example of those in charge abusing their power and then hiding behind the lame excuse that they didnt know what they were doing. If the LWV prevails in the current lawsuit, lawmakers could have to redraw the districts again before the 2014 elections. It may be messy, but at least those involved would be held accountable and we need more of that. A better option? Political mapping should be in the hands of an independent commission, not legislators getting input from their party cronies.

BENNUCKOLS Associated PressWASHINGTON Nicholas Simmons disappeared from his parents house in a small upstate New York town on New Years Day, leaving behind his wallet, cellphone and everything else. Four days later, an Associated Press photographer, looking for a way to illustrate unusually cold weather, snapped his picture as he warmed himself on a steam grate a few blocks from the Capitol. Paul and Michelle Simmons saw the AP photograph in USA Todayon Sunday morning after it was brought to their attention through a Facebook page set up to help find their son, according to police and family friends. The photo, taken Saturday by AP photographer Jacquelyn Martin, showed Simmons with his unshaven face pressed against a grate outside the Federal Trade Commission. He wore a ski jacket and a hood over his head. A thick gray blanket covered his lower body. Martin was assigned to the White House that weekend, but with President Barack Obama still on vacation in Hawaii, she spent the day looking for shots that would illustrate the cold weather. That is how she found Nick Simmons, in an area where homeless people often gather when it is frigid outside. She found a cluster of men huddled around the grate, introduced herself and started taking pictures. It is going to be about a 30degree drop in 24hours, he added. Wynn said the coldest morning is expected to be Wednesday when temperatures are expected to dip to the low 20s. However, he said just as quickly as it got cold, it will become warm once again with temperatures climbing to the upper 50s. Florida suffered record cold snaps in the winter of 2010 and devastated every conceivable industry in the state, including the citrus industry. A record number of manatees also died from the cold that year. Wynn expects temperatures to get back to normal Sunshine State winter temperatures by next weekend.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

NATION& WORLD Page A12MONDAY, JANUARY 6, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Unrest Associated PressGunmen move from house to house Sunday after clashes with Iraqi security forces in Fallujah, 40 miles west of Baghdad, Iraq. Iraq fighting kills dozensBAGHDAD The Iraqi military tried to dislodge alQaida militants in Sunnidominated Anbar province Sunday, unleashing air strikes and besieging the regional capital in fighting that killed at least 34 people, officials said. A series of bombs in Shiite neighborhoods of Baghdad, meanwhile, killed at least 20 people. The recent gains by the insurgents have been a blow to the Shiite-led government as sectarian violence has escalated since the U.S. withdrawal. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Washington was very, very concerned by the fighting but would not send in American troops. Video of the airstrikes in Anbar apparently taken by aircraft at night was released by Iraqs Defense Ministry showing al-Qaida hideouts being bombarded. It showed men gathered around a vehicle, then running away as the site was struck.Rebels clash with fighters in SyriaBEIRUT Syrian opposition fighters battled rival rebels from an al-Qaidalinked faction across parts of northern Syria on Sunday, as deep fissures within the insurgency erupted into some of the most serious and sustained violence between groups opposed to President Bashar Assad since the countrys conflict began. The clashes, which broke out on Friday and have spread to parts of four provinces, pit an array of moderate and ultraconservative Islamist brigades against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an extremist group that has become both feared and resented in parts of opposition-held areas for trying to impose its hardline interpretation of Islam.Ex-oil tycoon in SwitzerlandBERLIN Former Russian oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky traveled to Switzerland on Sunday, ostensibly on a family errand to bring his two sons back to school. But Khodorkovsky told Swiss television in an interview that he planned to keep campaigning for the release of political prisoners in Russia. The businessman who spent more than a decade in prison on what many in the West considered trumped-up charges was pardoned last month by his longtime foe, Russian President Vladimir Putin. There has been speculation the 50-year-old Khodorkovsky might seek to make a permanent home in Switzerland after telling reporters he wont return to Russia for the time being. World BRIEFS From wire reports Deep freeze Associated PressThree brothers from left, Connor, Trevor and Austin Bartz display this 16-foot-high snow shark Wednesday in the front yard of their New Brighton, Minn., home. It took them around 95 hours of work, and they gathered the snow from houses in their neighborhood. Below-zero temperatures push into Midwest, Northeast Associated PressCHICAGO Icy, snow-covered roads and high winds made travel treacherous Sunday from the Dakotas and Michigan to Missouri as much of the nation braced for the next winter wallop: a dangerous cold that could break records. A whirlpool of frigid, dense air known as a polar vortex was expected to suppress temperatures in more than half of the continental U.S. starting into Monday and Tuesday, with wind chill warnings stretching from Montana to Alabama. It was 5 degrees at kickoff Sunday afternoon inside sold-out Lambeau Field for a playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers, one of the coldest ever played. We suited up, we brought all the snowboarding gear we use ... and added to it, said 49ers fan Jeff Giardinelli of Fresno, Calif. Without the wind, which isnt here yet, were good. When it gets windy, well be ready for it. The forecast is extreme: 25 below zero in Fargo, N.D., minus31 in International Falls, Minn., and minus15 in Indianapolis and Chicago. Wind chills what it feels like outside when high winds are factored into the temperature could drop into the minus50s and 60s. Northeastern Montana was warned of wind chills up to 59 below zero. Its just a dangerous cold, said National Weather Service meteorologist Butch Dye in Missouri. Several Midwestern states received up to a foot of new snow Sunday. The National Weather Service said snowfall at OHare International Airport in Chicago totaled more than 11 inches as of 6p.m. Sunday the most since the Feb.2, 2011, storm. The St. Louis area had about a foot of snow and northern Indiana had at least 8 inches. Officials closed several Illinois roadways because of drifting snow and warned residents to stay inside. Roads in the Midwest were particularly dangerous, and officials in Missouri said it was too cold for rock salt to be very effective. Authorities also urged people to check on elderly and disabled relatives and neighbors. In Chicago, temperatures were expected to bottom out around minus 15 overnight, likely setting a daily record, National Weather Service meteorologist Ed Fenelon said. Earlier Sunday, temperatures sank to minus 20 and colder in northern Minnesota and Grand Forks, N.D. It hasnt been this cold for almost two decades in many parts of the country. Frostbite and hypothermia can set in quickly at 15 to 30 below zero. Lorna West, a 43-year-old student and consultant from Columbus, Ohio, said she doesnt believe people unaccustomed to such weather are ready for whats coming. A Chicago native, she said thermal underwear, lots of layers and Eskimo coats with zipped hoods to block the wind were the norm growing up. And dont go out if you dont have to, she said. In Michigan, residents jammed stores to stock up on supplies. I made my husband go grocery shopping last night, said Kim Tarnopol, 46, of the Detroit suburb of Huntington Woods. Tarnopol was picking up cold medicine Sunday for her daughter Emma at a CVS in nearby Berkley, Mich. Travel problems started early Sunday. In New York City, a plane from Toronto landed at Kennedy International Airport and then slid into snow on a taxiway. No one was hurt, though the airport temporarily suspended operations because of icy runways. About 1,300 flights had been canceled Sunday at OHare and Midway international airports in Chicago, aviation officials said, and there also were cancellations at Logan International Airport in Boston, Tennessees Memphis and Nashville international airports, and Lambert international airport in St. Louis. School was called off Monday for the entire state of Minnesota, as well as cities and districts in Wisconsin, Illinois and Indiana and Iowa, among others. Chicago Public School officials reversed course late in the day Sunday, canceling classes for Monday ahead of the expected bitterly cold temperatures. Lee Tuttle, 66, takes a break from blowing snow off of his driveway to pose for a portrait Sunday at his home on Miller Road in Flint, Mich. He said he hadn't really noticed the icicles forming in his beard.

Republicans intend to focus on every facet of President Barack Obamas health care law. They see a political boost in its problemplagued rollout as the GOP looks to maintain its House majority and seize control of the Democratic-led Senate. First up in the House, according to Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., is legislation addressing the security of personal data, part of his partys effort to protect the American people from the harmful effects of Obamacare. Republicans also promise closer scrutiny of the administrations tally of enrollment numbers in the program. Democrats will press to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour and extend unemployment benefits, trying to cast the party as more concerned with the less fortunate and intent on dealing with income inequality. The issues resonate with liberals, the core Democratic voters crucial in low-turnout midterm elections. Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 Democrat in the House, said an extension of federal benefits for an estimated 1.3 million Americans who saw their payments stopped on Dec. 28 is more than an economic issue. Its about real people, people with families struggling to put food on the table, to make ends meet, including ... 200,000 military veterans who are among these folks who are losing their benefits, he told reporters Friday. Senate Majority Lead er Harry Reid, D-Nev., has scheduled a vote Monday night on legislation by Sens. Jack Reed, D-R.I., and Dean Heller, R-Nev., to extend jobless benefits for three months. However, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he is unsure Democrats can cobble together 60 votes needed to overcome a procedural hurdle. If we dont get the 60, we will come back at this issue, he promised. President Barack Obama already has scheduled a White House event Tuesday with some whose benefits expired at the end of December. Instead of punishing families who can least afford it, Republicans should make it their New Years resolution to do the right thing and restore this vital economic security for their constituents right now, Obama said Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address. Republicans hinted they might go along with extending benefits if they win spending cuts from Reid elsewhere to pay for them. If the senator comes up with any kind of a reasonable idea to offset the $26 billion, I think that he might find some people that are willing to talk to him, said Rep. Matt Salmon, R-Ariz. Schumer, one of his partys leaders, said Democrats would prefer to pass the proposal as is without a way to pay for it, as has been the case for previous extensions. But he told reporters Sunday he would listen to GOP suggestions.
Associated PressGREEN BAY, Wis. Home or away. Late summer or during one of the coldest nights of the year. Doesnt matter where or when the San Francisco 49ers keep figuring out how to beat the Green Bay Packers. Phil Dawson kicked a 33-yard field goal as time expired, and Colin Kaepernick threw for 227 yards and ran for another 98 to lead the 49ers past the Packers 23-20 on Sunday night in a frigid NFC wildcard game. In a back-and-forth fourth quarter, the 49ers (13-4) threw the final punch. Kaepernick escaped a blitz on third-and-8 and scrambled for an 11-yard gain to the 27 with 1:13 left. Just trying to figure out a way to get that first down, Kaepernick said. Had a play called, we didnt get the look that we wanted. It worked out for us. Dawson nailed the winning kick five plays later but only after nearly being blocked by edge rusher Davon House. He was whistled for offsides on the play, but the 49ers declined the penalty with the win in hand. The defending NFC champions came away with a huge win in conditions that resembled a meat locker. It was 5 degrees at kickoff, and the winds made it feel like minus-10. San Francisco plays at Carolina next Sunday in the divisional round. They got us the first time, linebacker NaVarro Bowman said, referring to Carolinas 10-9 win on Nov. 10. Whats on our minds is to get them now. Its the playoffs. Win or go home. Mason Crosbys 24-yard field goal tied it at 20 for the Packers (8-8-1) with 5:06 left before the 49ers final drive. Until then, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers did his best to turn into Captain Comeback again. After a slow first quarter, Rodgers finished 17 of 26 for 177 yards and touchdown. Kaepernick connected with a spinning Vernon Davis down the seam for a 28-yard touchdown pass with 10:39 left. The score quickly answered John Kuhns 1-yard touchdown run that briefly gave the Packers a four-point lead. That TD was set up after Rodgers, in the clutches of a 49ers defender, somehow managed to escape a sack on fourth-and-2 and found Randall Cobb for a 26-yard gain to the Niners 4. Eddie Lacy ran for 81 yards on 21 carries for the Packers, No. 1 FSU faces No. 2 Auburn tonight Associated PressNEWPORT BEACH, Calif. Team Destiny vs. Team Domination. Before the Bowl Championship Series is replaced next year by a playoff, No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Auburn will meet in its last title game tonight at the Rose Bowl. The Seminoles (13-0) ripped through their schedule on the way to Pasadena, winning each game by at least 14 points behind Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston. I still think our best game is out there, Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said Sunday. Im looking forward to playing it on Monday night, and our kids are looking forward to the challenge. The turnaround Tigers (12-1) are the most unlikely group ever to reach the BCS championship game. Auburn went from 3-9 last year to Southeastern Conference champions in their first season under coach Gus Malzahn. It was a wild ride. The Prayer at Jordan-Hare beat Georgia. The Kick-Six beat Alabama. Destiny? Fate? Luck? The Tigers dont see it that way. Hey, I know were a team of hard work, I know that, said tailback Tre Mason, a Heisman finalist who has run for 1,621 yards and 22 touchdowns for the No. 1 rushing offense in the country. These guys put a lot of hard work in with me every day, blood, sweat and tears all year long. Auburn is the first team to reach the BCS championship game after having a losing season the previous season, and would become the first national champion to start the season unranked since BYU in 1984. After 16 years of the BCS, the routine is familiar the day before the big game. The coaches hold their final early morning news conferences, and then take a few minutes to shake hands with each other, exchange pleasantries and pose for pictures with the crystal football trophy that goes to the winner. On Sunday it was Fisher, the fast-talking West Virginian and Nick Saban disciple, and Malzahn, who has gone from high school coach in Arkansas to the national championship game in eight years, running the drill. Malzahn, who was the Tigers offensive coordinator when they won the 2010 national title, said Sunday he told his players before the season one of their goals was to make the biggest turnaround in college football. Done. Auburn has already matched the 2000 Hawaii team for most improved record in FBS history. Well, Auburn is a great program and used to winning championships, so I knew that we were going to get it turned around, he said. I didnt know how quick. There was a lot of questions when we first got there.

The Bengals? Still cant do anything right when its playoff time. San Diego took advantage of Andy Daltons three turnovers in the second half on Sunday, pulling away to a 27-10 victory that extended the Bengals stretch of playoff misery to 23 years and counting. With Rivers making accurate throws in the chilling rain, the Chargers (10-7) won their fifth in a row, beating the last team that had knocked them off. Theyll play next Sunday in Denver, which has the AFCs top seed. It was a shocking finish for the Bengals (11-6), who won the AFC North, went unbeaten at home and had their top-ranked defense for the playoffs. With everything in their favor, they fell apart, getting outscored 20-0 in the second half. We asked a lot of our defense today and they came up with three big turnovers, said Rivers, who was 12 of 16 for 128 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. We didnt turn it over, which is always big in the playoffs. The Bengals now have the sixth-longest streak of playoff futility in NFL history, stretching all the way San Diego running back Ryan Mathews avoids the tackle Sunday by Cincinnati safety Chris Crocker in the first half in Cincinnati.

And thats just the off-the-field stuff. On the field, he inherits a team mired in mediocrity with a 30-21 record over the last four years, but still talented enough to come within 30 minutes of winning a share of the 2013 Big 12 title. Strong will be introduced as the Texas football coach today. In a statement released by the school Sunday, Strong said he was excited to be taking over one of the premier programs in the country. Texas is one of those places that is always on your radar and a program anyone would dream of being a part of because you have a chance to compete on a national level every year, Strong said. Its special because it has such great history, pride, tradition and passion for football. In the 53-year-old Strong the first black head coach of a mens program at Texas new athletic director Steve Patterson landed a coach whose teams went 23-3 the last two years, including a BCS bowl win over Florida and a blowout of Miami to end the 2013 season in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, who has the No. 1 Seminoles in tonights national title game, praised the hire. Fisher was previously considered a possible target for Texas and would have faced Strong in the ACC when Louisville moves to that league next season. I think hes done a tremendous job at Louisville, turning those guys around, Fisher said Sunday. I think Charlies an excellent coach.

B2MONDAY, JANUARY6, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Saints edge Eagles 26-24 in NFC wild-card game Associated PressPHILADELPHIA The New Orleans Saints finally came up with the right plan for outdoor playoff football in cold weather. It got them their first postseason road victory. Shayne Grahams 32-yard field goal, the fourth Saturday night for the recent addition to the team, won it on the final play, 26-24 over the Philadelphia Eagles. Drew Brees, who threw for a touchdown and guided the 34-yard drive to the winning kick, didnt need to be a big star because the Saints running game and defense along with Grahams leg provided the heroics. Its just, man, believing in each other, ignoring what everyone else has to say, Brees said. New Orleans (12-5) will play at NFC top-seed Seattle next Saturday. The Saints lost there 34-7 in the regular season. Its loud, its crazy, theyve got a good thing going there, Brees said of the next challenge. Graham, signed by the Saints just over two weeks ago to replace long-time kicker Garrett Hartley, also connected from 36, 46 and 35 yards. Brees threw for a touchdown, Mark Ingram rushed for 97 yards and another score, and the Saints defense slowed Chip Kellys up-tempo offense just enough. New Orleans had been 0-5 in postseason games outside of the Big Easy since entering the league in 1967. Philadelphia wound up 10-7 in Kellys first year as coach. He guided them from worst to first in the NFC East, but they were only 4-5 at home. Nick Foles hit rookie Zach Ertz for a 3-yard touchdown with 4:54 remaining as Philadelphia rallied from a 13-point deficit to take a one-point lead. But Darren Sproles had a 39-yard kickoff return and a horse-collar tackle brought New Orleans to the Philadelphia 48. Using mostly runs, the Saints ate up the clock and set up Grahams winner.

Eberle scores twice in Oilers win over Lightning Tampa Bays five-game road win streak snapped Associated PressEDMONTON, Alberta Jordan Eberle scored two goals, and the Edmonton Oilers snapped a fourgame losing streak with a 5-3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night. Taylor Hall, Luke Gazdic, and Boyd Gordon also scored for the Oilers (14-26-5), who have won three of 13. Edmonton avoided its fourth fivegame losing streak of the season. It was the Oilers first win against a team above the playoff cutline in a month. Nikita Kucherov, Victor Hedman and Valtteri Flippula had goals for the Lightning (25-13-4), whose five-game winning streak on the road ended.Penguins 6, Jets 5PITTSBURGH Evgeni Malkin scored twice in his return from injury and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the Winnipeg Jets 6-5.

Patric Hornqvist tied it for Nashville with a power-play goal at 6:46 of the third period when he tipped in the puck at the right post for his ninth goal. But the Predators, who had earned points in four straight games, dropped their third in a row. The Hurricanes, who played without injured captain Eric Staal, took a 1-0 lead on Semins goal 4:28 into the game. Carolina went ahead for good when Skinner scored with 3:31 left. Staal sat out after he sustained a lower-body injury Saturday night in a win at the New York Islanders.Sharks 3, Blackhawks 2, SOCHICAGO Logan Couture and Joe Pavelski scored in a shootout, and the San Jose Sharks beat the Blackhawks 3-2 for their first victory in Chicago in three years. Alex Stalock made 33 saves through overtime as San Jose bounced back from a 4-3 loss at Colorado on Saturday. Jason Demers scored in the first period and Brett Burns had a tying goal in the third. Couture beat Corey Crawford into the right side of the net after Stalock stopped Chicago captain Jonathan Toews leading off the shootout.

Hewitt upsets Federer to win Brisbane title Associated PressBRISBANE, Australia With the Fanatics in bright yellow and raucously chanting for Lleyton Hewitt to stay on top of Roger Federer, the Brisbane International final had the surreal feel of a journey back in time. It wouldnt have seemed out of context a decade ago, when Hewitt spent 80 weeks atop the tennis rankings and Federer was yet to win a Grand Slam title. But Hewitts 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 win Sunday over his longest-standing rival on tour was clearly an upset, and delivered him his first title since 2010. The 32-year-old former No. 1s have met 27 times dating back to 1999, and Hewitt has now improved his record to nine wins against the 17-time Grand Slam champion. Federer was broken three times and committed 22 unforced errors in the first set, making some uncharacteristically basic mistakes including an air swing and two shanked forehands. He recovered in the second set and then had break-point chances in Hewitts first three service games in the deciding set, but couldnt get the vital breakthrough when he needed it most.Wawrinka wins Chennai OpenCHENNAI, India Topseeded Stanislas Wawrinka regained the Chennai Open title without dropping a set in the tournament when he defeated Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France 7-5, 6-2 on Sunday.

Roger-Vasselin, looking for a maiden ATP title in his second final, started competitively but made several unforced errors in a bid to raise his game as Wawrinka took control midway into the match.

Simpson said he played with a heavy heart Sunday upon learning the newborn son of his caddie, Paul Tesori, was in intensive care. He says players and caddies are sending along their best to Tesori, and that Simpson rarely went a hole without thinking about him. But he played some good golf on a beautiful day, getting into the mix of a wild tournament. Johnson and Spieth each had a 69 to join Simpson at 14-under 205.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE back to the 1990 season. Theyve lost their playoff opener three straight years, matching a league record as well, according to STATS LLC. Coach Marvin Lewis fell to 0-5 in the playoffs during his 11 seasons as head coach, but is expected to stick around and get another chance to try again. A lot of it fell on Dalton, who has a trilogy of bad playoff games. He fumbled and threw two interceptions in the second half that set up San Diegos win. Dalton finished 29 of 51 for 334 yards with a below-average passer rating of 67. Combined with the Saints victory over the Eagles on Saturday night, the two No. 6 playoff seeds won for the first time since 2010, when the Packers won the Super Bowl. And the Chargers are thinking: Why not us? We talked all week about this being the fifth round, Rivers said, referring to their five-game winning streak. So the sixth round will be in Denver next week. This one was a reversal from the last time they met. The Bengals forced three turnovers for a 17-10 win in San Diego on Dec. 1, which became the Chargers turning point. The Bengals got the rematch at home, where they had scored 49, 41, 41, 42 and 34 points in their last five regular season games. They were blanked in the second half on Sunday, when Dalton went 17 of 34 for 170 yards with two interceptions, a fumble and three sacks. In first-round playoff losses each of the past three seasons, Dalton has thrown one touchdown pass and six interceptions. Rivers completed a team-record and NFL-best 69.5 percent of his passes this season for 4,478 yards. He was only 5 of 6 in the first half for 48 yards with San Diego frequently backed inside its 20-yard line to start drives. He completed all of his six passes during a 10-play, 80-yard touchdown drive in the third quarter that put the Chargers ahead to stay, with his 4-yard pass to Ladarius Green giving San Diego a 14-10 lead. Dalton then made the mistakes that turned the game, allowing the Chargers to pull ahead. Ronnie Brown finished it off with a 58-yard touchdown run, the longest TD run against the Bengals in their playoff history. our guys came together and they believed. Malzahns up-tempo, spread offense is a combination of deception and power that seemingly gets better every game. Against Missouri in the SEC championship game, Auburn ran for 545 yards. Well, you have to have eye discipline, Fisher said. Any time you have moving parts, any time you bring something in front of you, just like when youre driving, if somebody flashes a hand in front of you while youre driving down the road it makes you blink, it makes your eyes distracted and you get off of what youre looking at and then at the same time they become very physical with how they play, and you get yourself out of position, they knock you out of the way, and theres a four, five, eight, 10 or they break a run right up the middle. Fisher has put together the most talented two-deep depth in the country, a collection of five-star recruits and NFL prospects reminiscent of coach Bobby Bowdens best Florida State teams. The Seminoles won two national titles under Fishers Hall of Fame predecessor and played in the first three BCS title games. The Seminoles havent been back since 2000. A prodigy led them. Winston turns 20 today. The redshirt freshman became the youngest player to win the Heisman Trophy, setting FBS freshman records for most yards passing by a freshman (3,820) and touchdown passes (38). His only problems came off the field. In November, a yearold sexual assault complaint against him was investigated by Florida prosecutors. After three weeks, the state attorney announced he did not have enough evidence to charge Winston. A week and a half later, Winston won the Heisman in a landslide vote. The Seminoles outscored their opponents by 42 points per game and have not trailed since Sept. 28. Winston and the rest of the starters have spent most fourth quarters relaxing. The Atlantic Coast Conference was no match for the Seminoles. Will the lack of stiff, fourquarter tests and not the most difficult of schedules put Florida State at a disadvantage? The Noles say nonsense. I cant help that another team cant keep up with us, linebacker Telvin Smith said. Florida State is also trying to break the SECs grip on the national championship. The streak is at seven, but never has the SEC team been as big an underdog (Auburn is getting 10 points from oddsmakers). The Seminoles are fine being the favorites. Im glad everybodys calling Auburn a team of destiny, Winston said, because at Florida State we control our own destiny.

Goldens statement did not specifically mention Penn State, his alma mater, which reportedly targeted him as a top candidate to replace Bill OBrien as coach. University officials had no other immediate comment, though athletic director Blake James said throughout the process he was confident Golden would remain with the school. Hes staying, James said Sunday. Golden is 22-15 in three seasons at Miami, with much of that time coming while the Hurricanes were dealing with an NCAA investigation concerning the actions of a former booster. That saga ended midway through this past season, when Miami finished 9-4 and began luring a recruiting class that is widely expected to be among the top 10 nationally. There has been much speculation concerning my future at the University of Miami, Golden said in the statement released by the school. While I am flattered that our progress at The U during an extremely difficult period of time is recognized, I am also appreciative of just what we have here at UM and I am not a candidate for another position. Golden was unaware of the investigation when he took the Miami job, often calling what happened when the NCAA probe became widely known in August 2011 a few weeks before his first game with the Hurricanes the tsunami. Nonetheless, he stayed and was rewarded with an extension, one that has him under contract into early 2020. Golden is to hold a season-ending news conference today.AP source: Watkins, two other Tigers to NFLCOLUMBIA, S.C. Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins is off to the NFL. A person familiar with the junior wideouts decision said the record-setting Watkins would give up his final year with the Tigers to enter the NFL draft. The person requested anonymity since the school had not officially announced Watkins intentions. The source also said two other Tigers in receiver Martavis Bryant and cornerback Bashaud Breeland were also giving up the rest of their college eligibility for the NFL. Watkins set an Orange Bowl record with 16 catches for 227 yards and two touchdowns in the 12th-ranked Tigers 40-35 win over No. 7 Ohio State on Friday night. Watkins also set single season and career school marks for pass catches. He tied the school career mark with 27 touchdowns.From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Al Golden while Frank Gore had 66 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries for the 49ers. Michael Crabtree had eight catches for 125 yards for San Francisco. But it was Kaepernick who was the difference-maker once again in San Franciscos fourth straight win over Green Bay. He finished 16 of 30 with the touchdown and an interception. For the second year in a row, the Packers season has started and ended with losses to the 49ers. The latest edition of whats turned into a chippy and heated rivalry took place on the worn, frozen turf of Lambeau Field. In a memorable playoff debut last January, Kaepernick ran for a quarterback playoff-record 181 yards and a pair of touchdowns. In the season opener in September, the strong-armed quarterback threw for a career-best 412 yards and three scores. This time, he did his damage on the ground and through the air. Kaepernick tore through the Green Bay defense for a 42-yard run, getting a break at one point after House whiffed on a tackle, to set up Gores 10-yard touchdown run that helped give the 49ers a 13-10 halftime lead. The Packers went without a first down in the first quarter before finally getting on the board with a methodical 14-play, 70-yard drive that ended with Rodgers 5-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson that gave the Packers a 7-6 lead with 5:50 left in the half. The drive was set up by Tramon Williams 17-yard interception of Kaepernick to the 49ers 30. In the end, Kaepernick came out with another win. The 49ers nasty defense got pressure on Rodgers most of the day, but the Packers still rallied in the fourth. A depleted Packers defense already playing without linebacker Clay Matthews lost two more starters Sunday in cornerback Sam Shields and linebacker Mike Neal but still managed to hold its own against the Niners. 49ERSContinued from Page B1

B6MONDAY, JANUARY6, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.This was the deal in last weeks final column. Chen Yuechen from China won the 2013 Richard Freeman Junior Deal of the Year from the International Bridge Press Association for his defense against six no-trump. Chen (West) had guessed to lead his club three. South had taken Easts nine with his ace, played a diamond to dummys jack, and run the heart jack. West had won and found the killing return of his remaining diamond. South won in his hand, cashed his club king, and led a spade, planning to finesse dummys 10. He needed two dummy entries: one to repeat the heart finesse and the second to cash the 13th heart. But Chen put up his spade jack, a textbook entry-killing play that defeated the contract. I wonder how many readers noticed that South missed an interesting chance to make his contract. Before playing a diamond to dummys jack, declarer should have cashed his diamond ace. This looks pointless, but not when West started with only two diamonds. When he got in with his heart ace, he would have been endplayed. If West returned a club, South could get four tricks in the suit by playing low from the dummy to collect three spades, one heart, four diamonds and four clubs. Or, if West shifted to a low spade, declarer would win with dummys 10 and have his second dummy entry. He would win three spades, three hearts, four diamonds and two clubs. This is called a Dentists Coup extracting the safe exit card(s) from a defenders hand.

He did some parttime work every now and then. His wife refused to find a job and mostly stayed home. My wife and I work long hours. We also then had to do the grocery shopping, cooking and taking care of our kids afterward. During this time, my brother and his wife never spent a penny on food or anything else. We politely said that we think it is time for them to find their own place and move out. A few hours later, they left screaming and shouting at us. We were speechless. My brother says we are cheap because we asked them to leave. What do I tell him? Please help. Cheap Brother Dear Brother: Listen closely: You did nothing wrong. Your brother and his wife are first-class freeloaders. They took advantage of your generosity, making no effort to contribute to their upkeep. They would have allowed you to support them financially for the rest of their lives. They are angry because they couldnt bamboozle you longer than nine months, which is plenty long enough. People who take advantage of others are always the first to cry foul when things dont go their way. We know you care about your relationship with your brother, but nothing will make him happy short of letting him move back in. Please ignore him. Do not defend yourself against his accusations. Do not, under any circumstances, let him guilt you into helping him out again unless its to help him find a full-time job. Simply say as calmly as possible, Im sorry things didnt work out for you. Repeat as necessary. Dear Annie: Im still angry about something. The day after Thanksgiving was trash pickup in my neighborhood. Lo and behold, sticking out of my trash container was a Christmas card from my recycling collector, complete with his name and address. Two days later, I found the same type of card tucked into my newspaper from our carrier. This one included a mailing envelope. The next week, it was the garbage man.I know we should remember these people during the holidays, and I have no problem showing my appreciation. But its long past Christmas, and I have yet to hear any of them say thank you to me. Shouldnt they? How hard is it to write the words thank you on the same type of card that they managed to give me in search of a tip? Ive worked in the service industry for years and have always acknowledged a gift. Am I expecting too much? Connecticut Dear Connecticut: Not at all. It is simply good manners to say thank you, and no one is exempt. Anyone who receives a gift, including the newspaper carrier and the trash collector, should acknowledge it either in person or by note if they expect to endear themselves to their clientele the following holiday season. Dear Annie: I totally agree with I Need Nice Clothes, Too. There may be more large-sized clothes than before, but shes right about how ugly they are. Most of them look like something youd use to upholster a sofa. No one wants those loud colors and patterns, and some of them are covered with sequins. Why not just put a flashing light on them? Here in Canada, I suspect we have less of a selection than you do in the States. Some of our biggest retailers continue to feature small departments with plus sizes and the ugliest things youve ever seen. Its probably why you see plus-size women wearing clothes that are too small for them.
