The same Canadian cold front that is bringing sub-zero weather to the Northeast and Midwest brought nighttime temperatures Monday and Tuesday dipping in the 20s for the first time since 2010. But unlike that year, when cold weather hung around like an unwelcome relative through March, this winter will feature a day or two of cold followed by a quick warm-up. Well be near 80 by Friday and Saturday, Bay News 9 meteorologist Mike Clay said. Clay said to expect a similar pattern next week and the week after that. A day or two cold front though not as cold as this weeks followed by a quick warming trend. Manatees notice the cold. About 300 gathered Tuesday morning in and near the sanctuary at Three Sisters Springs and even more are expected this morning, said Ivan Vicente, spokesman with the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. Refuge officials kept the springs closed to the public Chills wont last long MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleFreezing temperatures Tuesday morning created elongated icicles on much of the citrus fruit at Bellamy Grove in Inverness. Chuck Bellamy, the operator of the grove, said temperatures reached 30 degrees just before sunrise, but he believes the fruit was spared damage. He expects another cold morning today, but a strong warming trend is forecast through the weekend.

SIDIBE Staff writerA January 2010 tragic twovehicle crash that left an Inverness woman dead and sent two others to the hospital is being re-lived this time in civil court. And at stake is the integrity of the work of a well-known road paving company, the future of the motorists family and perhaps millions of dollars in damages. Katherine Wheeler, 50, was killed when a 1998 Ford Explorer, driven by Citrus Springs resident Jacqueline Vichot, 43, struck Wheelers minivan. Vichot was traveling southbound on County Road 491 just north of Beverly Hills when the right-side wheels of her SUV dropped off the pavement near Fero Funeral Home. Vichot reportedly tried to correct the mistake and that correction sent her into a skid, which carried her directly into the path of Wheelers 1990 Ford minivan. The front end of Vichots Explorer rammed into the front left side of Wheelers vehicle.

Citrus Memorial Health System (CMHS) staff physician Dr. Boris Todorovic died as a result of a traffic accident Dec. 30 in Leesburg. Although his primary practice was at Lakeview Internal Medicine in Mount Dora, Dr. Boris, as everyone called him, also held staff privileges at Leesburg Regional Medical Center, Florida Hospital Waterman in Tavares and Citrus Memorial Health System, where he was Physician of the Year in 2010. He was a hospitalist at Citrus, which meant he treated everyone who did not have a primary physician, said Becky Beattie, a registered nurse at Citrus Memorial. His days were packed full, yet he always had a skip in his step and a smile on his face. I loved his laugh, especially when he found something very funny. I will miss the silly high fives and waves and how he said, Hiya Becks to me. He had expressive eyes, and when something bothered him you could see it in his eyes, Beattie said. When he was happy, those eyes smiled, especially when he talked about his daughter. What a great man and physician. A native of Croatia, Dr. Boris came to the U.S. in 1999 after serving in the Croatian Army. He came to Central Florida and continued practicing internal medicine in 2004. On Citrus Memorials Facebook page, CMHS nurse Michelle Durst wrote that the thing she remembered most about Dr. Boris was his walk. He walked with a deliberateness that convinced you that his very next destination must be the most important in the world, Dr. Boris known as colorful character Physician who worked at CMHS killed in car wreck during final days of 2013 Dr. Boris Todorovic See DR.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE, Fla. A federal judge is signing off on water pollution rules, but environmentalists are blasting the ruling and say they may appeal the decision. U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle ruled Tuesday that state and federal authorities can move ahead with an agreement that lets the state set rules designed to head off contamination that leads to toxic algae blooms. Its the latest chapter in a long-running battle over the regulation of the states lakes, rivers, as well as some estuaries. But environmentalists said the ruling means Clean Water Act protections will not apply to most Florida waters. David Guest, an attorney with Earthjustice, said the states rules arent working and that there are toxic slime outbreaks happening across the state. Tuesday and they will stay closed until further notice, though that could happen today, Vicente said. Vicente said local tour guides are respecting the cold weather alert and staying away from Three Sisters. When youre talking about 300 manatees outside the sanctuary, the less boats, the less intrusion, and manatees can conserve energy, he said. The cold nights had little impact on citrus at Bellamy Groves, manager Chuck Bellamy said. I think were going to be OK, he said. Todays high should be in the low 60s and tonights low in the mid 40s.

NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS n Dec.31, John Sullivan, 66, retired from his job as the county court operations manager, took a week off and on Monday morning he was back at his desk as a volunteer. He hadnt even packed up his office. Its hard to leave, he said. At the Dec. 17 county commission meeting, Sullivan was recognized for his service and the day was proclaimed John D. Sullivan Day in Citrus County. The proclamation notes Sullivans strong work ethic, sense of fairness and Christian values and that he believes in the words of Harry S. Truman: It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. Those who have worked with him for the past 17 years consider him the glue that holds everything together. Hes our go-to person, said Beth Blackwelder, court administrative assistant. The things most notable about him are his willingness to help and his constant calmness. Hes able to be calm when everyone else is losing it. A Florida native, Sullivan moved to Citrus County from Tampa in 1971, where he worked for then-Florida Power as a groundman and then for Kash n Karry as district manager for 25years. I like longevity, Sullivan said. Ive been married for 45years, and Beth (Blackwelder) has been my secretary off and on for 30years. After leaving Kash n Karry in 1995, he dabbled in real estate for two years before being hired at the courthouse as director of courts. I didnt know anything about courts, but it was a management position and I figured I could learn it, he said. He discovered that court isnt like its portrayed on TV, but that its basically routine. People look at court cases as mostly criminal cases, but thats only about 30 percent, he said. The rest is civil cases or family cases, and that was interesting to find out. The criminal cases make the newspapers; the rest is under the radar most of the time. He also discovered that, despite the jokes, most lawyers are honorable and good people to work with, with very few exceptions. For the past 17 years, Sullivan has made sure every judge, every trial, every hearing, every mediation, each of the five court rooms has had whatever was necessary to get the job done. He made things run as smoothly as possible, and will continue doing the same job two or three days a week as a volunteer. Thats why his office is the same as the day he retired. I cant sit still, he said. I like to work, and I believe were put on Earth to serve one another, and I try to do just that.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-564-2927 or nkennedy@chronicle online.com.Around theSTATE Citrus CountyTrees accepted at county landfillEligible Citrus County residents may recycle natural, live Christmas trees at the Citrus County Central Landfill, free of charge during the months of December and January only.

Florida Today reported the woman died Sunday at Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne. Director Heidar Heshmati said two others a pregnant woman in her 30s and a 62-year-old man are on life support due to influenza. Heshmati said the woman refused to get the flu vaccination. From staff reports Associated PressSTARKE A Florida inmate was executed Tuesday for fatally stabbing a prison guard with a sharpened spoon while on death row for abducting and killing a Miami couple. Askari Abdullah Muhammad, previously known as Thomas Knight, was pronounced dead at 6:45p.m. Tuesday following a lethal injection at Florida State Prison, the governors office said. The 62-yearold inmate was initially condemned to die for the 1974 abduction and killings of Sydney and Lillian Gans of Miami. Tuesdays execution was specifically for his conviction in the 1980 killing of corrections officer Richard Burke. Muhammad was visited by his four sisters Monday and earlier Tuesday by a friend. His execution was delayed for so long by numerous appeals and rulings, including a 1987 federal appeals court tossing out his original death sentence because he hadnt been allowed to put character and background witnesses on the stand during the penalty phase. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear his final appeals, but Justice Stephen Breyer said in a dissent he would have granted a stay to hear Muhammads claims that it may be unconstitutional to execute an inmate after such a long time on death row. Court documents show that Muhammad fatally stabbed Burke as he was being escorted to the prison shower. The inmate had become upset, the documents say, because he was told he couldnt see a visitor unless he shaved his full beard. The documents added he had been overheard by guards to remark that it looks like Ill have to start sticking people. While awaiting trial, he and 10 other inmates escaped from jail, leading to a nationwide manhunt including a top 10 fugitives listing by the FBI. Muhammad converted to Islam in prison, changing his name from Knight. During his 1996 resentencing, he cursed at the judge and lawyers and yelled Allahu Akbar! God is great in Arabic. STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Seven Rivers parent firm set to merge PATFAHERTY Staff writerShareholders of Health Management Associates, parent company of Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center near Crystal River, are set to vote today on a merger with Community Health Systems. It would create the nations largest chain of hospitals by number and provide CHS with a strong presence in Florida. In addition to Citrus County, the Tennessee-based chain would obtain ownership and/or operation of numerous heathcare facilities throughout Florida, including hospitals in Brooksville and Spring Hill. CHS is also poised to sign a 40year lease with Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala, a transaction negotiated earlier with Naples-based Health Management Associated (HMA). The deal will pay the Marion County Hospital District $212.8million. The merger plans were announced last July, but delayed by various objections and a review by the Securities and Exchange Commission. At the time, HMA was one of the bidders for Citrus Memorial Health System in Inverness. By late November, the merger was back on track and both sides publicly encouraged HMA stockholders to vote for it at the special meeting in Naples on Jan.8. HMA documents and SEC filings showed a greater-thanexpected drop in hospital volume for 2013, including admissions, surgeries and emergency room visits. Joyce Brancato, Seven Rivers chief executive officer, said in a statement when the merger was announced that patients wont see a difference. The most important thing to know about this transaction is that it will not impact our day-to-day business, she said. We are dedicated to delivering the highestquality care with a focus on continual improvement. Our patients remain our priority. Her views were echoed by Eric Waller, HMA senior vice president. The combination of Health Management and CHS is not expected to impact local hospital operations, he said. Our deep commitment to providing the highest-quality patient care will not change. We continue to believe this transaction represents full and fair value for HMA stockholders, while positioning CHS for longterm growth that will benefit local communities and patients around the country, said Wayne T. Smith, chairman, president and chief executive officer of CHS, when the merger details were made public.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or email@example.com.

Shaws prolific studio helped bring kung fu films to the world but he also passed on the chance to sign one of the biggest names in that genre: the young Bruce Lee. The missed opportunity was a rare misstep for Shaw, who died Tuesday, according to a statement from Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB), which he helped found in 1967. No cause of death was given. His studio gave his age as 107, but his age according to the Western counting method may have been 106 because Chinese traditionally consider a child to be 1 at birth. The broadcasters Chinese language channel is also popular in southern China and its Chinese programs, many dubbed into other languages, are seen by 300 million households around the world. Shaw, knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1974, was also a philanthropist. In 2002, he founded the annual Shaw Prizes, Asias version of the Nobel Prizes. The honor offers $1 million annually to winners in mathematics, medicine and astronomy. Shaw preferred to stay out of the spotlight and rarely gave interviews, even about his philanthropy. A journalist for the South China Morning Post newspaper recounted mentioning during a 1984 interview that a medical team fighting leprosy in southwestern China had trouble traveling over the rugged, mountainous terrain. On hearing this, Shaw immediately decided to donate off-road vehicles but demanded there be no publicity.Apple: People spent $10B in app storeNEW YORK Apple said people spent more than $10 billion in its app store last year, on apps such as Minecraft, Angry Birds Star Wars and Sleep Cycle alarm clock.

For many Christians, the 12th night after Christmas marks the end of the holiday season and the beginning of the overindulgence and debauchery associated with Carnival. In New Orleans, Twelfth Night is when street parades begin and king cakes pop up in grocery stores and bakeries. In all, more than 100 parades will be held along the Gulf Coast in the months leading up to Mardi Gras on March 4. The end of Carnival is marked by Ash Wednesday, the day after Fat Tuesday.

DEATHSContinued from Page A6 Associated PressNEW YORK Stocks rallied Tuesday, ending a slump that had ushered in the New Year. The Standard and Poors 500 index climbed the most in three weeks, led by gains for health care stocks. UnitedHealth Group, the nations largest health insurer, and Johnson & Johnson both climbed on recommendations for brokerage firms. After three straight declines, the S&P 500 would have matched its worst opening of a year since 1978 had it closed lower for a fourth day. The stock markets slow start to 2014 contrasts with last years exceptional performance, when the S&P 500 climbed to record levels after surging almost 30 percent. To me the trend still looks up, even though weve been chopping around, said Bill Stone, chief investment strategist at PNC Wealth Management Group. The economy seems to be in the mode that you would expect corporate earnings to continue to grow. The S&P 500 rose 11.11 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,837.88, the biggest gain since Dec. 18. Nine of the 10 sectors that make up the index rose. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 105.84 points, or 0.6 percent, to 16,530.94 The Nasdaq composite gained 39.50 points, or 1 percent, to 4,153.18. UnitedHealth group gained $2.27, or 3.1 percent, to $76.51 after analysts at Deutsche Bank said they expected the nations largest health insurance company to charge customers more in premiums this year. Johnson & Johnson climbed $1.96, or 2.1 percent, to $94.29 after analysts at RBC Capital raised their outlook on the stock to outperform, in part due to optimism on sales of the diabetes drug Invokana. Stocks rally, breaking a three-day slump Associated PressLUSK, Wyo. In the least populated county in the least populated state, old Ford and Chevy pickup trucks roam and rule the roads. Finding a Tesla, the sleek and pricey all-electric car, around these ranching towns is about as likely as spotting the mythical jackalope. And yet, one day last month, a Model S sedan pulled quietly in at the Americas Best Value Inn Covered Wagon Motel in Lusk, population 1,557. Its mission was to plug in four gleaming white supercharger units the company had just installed in the motels courtyard. The visit was part of a test of a planned coast-to-coast route of quickcharge stations for Tesla vehicles. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company plans dozens more across the middle of the continent in the months ahead to make it more feasible for the electric car to go from seashore to seashore. Some folks in Lusk are cautiously hoping that the stations will bring a steady stream of wealthy motor tourists. In the meantime, if and when the next Tesla shows up, locals who commonly plug in their cars and trucks to keep their engines from freezing may be left wondering about the visitors who plug in their cars to charge them. After all, theres no shortage of skepticism about electric cars out here its not the kind of place for electric cars. First, people are partial to the pickup truck because of its ability to tow heavy loads and endure the rattling rides of going off-road. Second, Wyoming is famous for its open ranges, terrain that has worried electric car owners because they could end up being stranded. The Model S, which begins at $70,000 but with options can top $100,000, can drive a long way for an electric car: Up to 265 miles on a single charge. Draining the battery pack and recharging it all the way takes more than 4 hours with the best available home charger. The companys superchargers Wyomings first are at the Covered Wagon offer a trade-off that makes longdistance trips more feasible. The stations can charge a run-down Tesla battery pack to 90 percent in just 45 to 50 minutes. In Lusk, thats enough time to grab a burger at the nearby Outpost Caf or Triangle 4 Caf & Steakhouse, or visit the antiques stores downtown. The supercharger station will be a critical stepping-stone between stations in Cheyenne and Rapid City, S.D. Highlights on the first coast-to-coast route to be followed, Tesla said, by a couple of more cross-country options by the end of this year include the scenic Four Corners region and Mount Rushmore. Thats kind of the thought behind this first, initial route, is enabling the great American road trip, Tesla spokesman Patrick Jones said.

The last time Lusk got any attention for such cutting-edge technology was in the late 1990s, when a Microsoft television ad trumpeted the towns connection to the Internet as an answer to tough times for the ranching community. In reality, a $3 million project to link Lusk to fiber-optic broadband was stalled for years.

OPINION Page A8WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2014 Caring staff helps through surgeryThank you, thank you! This is a big thank you to the Lecanto Surgery Center and Dr. Pritchyk (Nature Coast Foot and Ankle Center). I recently had a foot surgery and it was a very pleasant experience. Every person I dealt with was wonderful; you couldnt ask to be treated any better. I had seen a Dr. Oz show a few days before my scheduled surgery; this woman had the same bunion repair surgery that I was scheduled to have. She expressed how painful an experience she had. I am happy to say that was not my experience. Dr. Pritchyk and the Lecanto Surgery Center were so very caring and kind I am going to schedule my other foot.Debbie Walker Beverly HillsEnergy costs to riseAttention, Duke energy customers: As youve been previously alerted (warned?): your 2014 bill is going up. How much? If the rate is accurate that is in the latest Duke Energy enclosure with this months bill, heres how much: Up to 1000 KW, the Energy Charge is up 3.1 percent; over 1000 KW, 4.1 percent, but wait: theres more... The fuel charge: up to 1000 KW ... 20.2 percent; over 1000KW, 15.6 percent. Check your previous bills and do the math for 2014. Dont say you werent warned.Patrick Bange Lecanto Whats in a word?J. Gibson in his or her writing to the Chronicleforgot to mention the commonsense approach to the word Holiday. It is apparent a computer was consulted for the definition of the word, since Wikipedia was mentioned. What was not mentioned is that the word Holiday does not refer to a Holy Day in this part of the world! The letter writer has tried to influence the reader that the word Holiday is a Holy Day according to the definition when in fact it explains that the word Holiday, in todays context means A day of celebration, a day off of work. In 2013, there were more than 190 holidays celebrated somewhere in the U.S. And dont tell me they were all Christian holidays. Does the 4th of July sound like a Christian holiday? I dont think so, but its still a holiday! New Years is a holiday just like Valentines Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and, yes, Christmas Day. If Gibson wants to show concern for the Christian holiday of Christmas, they could show a little more tolerance and understanding toward their fellowman and not try to destroy a nice part of our heritage, having holidays! Happy Holiday!Robert Des Camps Citrus Springs Fair warning: This is about the Duck Dynasty controversy. Yes, I know. Im sick of it, too. Still, relying upon my First Amendment right to freedom of speech, I will make a few observations about Phil Robertson, the grizzled Louisiana duck hunter turned reality TV star whose comments about black and gay people recently got him suspended and then unsuspended by A&E. If you find my observations disagreeable you may, relying upon your own First Amendment rights, protest to my employer. Assuming enough of you bring enough pressure, my employer may dump me. Feeling angry and betrayed, I might heres that First Amendment again blast my now-former bosses for defects of character, courage or cognition. But one thing I could not say at least not credibly is that theyd violated my First Amendment rights. There is nothing in the First Amendment that says a private company cant fire you. Well return to the First in a second. Right now, let me offer the promised observations about Mr. Robertson: Man really needs to wake up and smell the 21st century. His comments, made in an interview with GQ, are almost cartoonish in their stupidity. They sound less like they were made by a backwoods ignoramus than by someone doing a takeoff on a backwoods ignoramus. For instance, Robertson explains his aversion to homosexuality by discoursing on the comparative merits of the male anus and the vagina. For good measure, he invokes bestiality and the Bible. He also notes how black people were singing and happy when he was young. Preentitlement, prewelfare ... they were godly, they were happy; no one was singing the blues. Ahem. So anyway, A&E was shocked shocked, I say, shocked! to learn that a self-described redneck from the Louisiana woods harbored such illiberal views. It suspended Robertson, thereby igniting a scrum of conservative pols jockeying to express newfound love for the First Amendment. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says he can remember when TV networks still believed in it. Sarah Palin calls free speech an endangered species. Mike Huckabee says, Stand with Phil and support free speech. Yeah. Because freedom of speech means you can say any asinine thing you want and nobody can call you on it or punish you for it. Right? Um ... actually, no. Free speech means you can say any asinine thing you want and the government may not call you on it or punish you for it. If the feds came after Robertson, Id hold my nose and stand with him. But he wasnt punished by the feds. He was punished by the free market. The First Amendment gives each of us the right to bring whatever we wish into the marketplace of ideas faith, gay rights, white supremacy, libertarianism, socialism, birtherism without government interference. But if enough people dont buy what you are selling, you dont stay in the market very long. And if what youre selling offends enough people, the market will show you the door. So Robertsons rights were not abridged because his network slapped his wrists. Those are the rules we play by. Thats how America works. A&E, calculating that Robertson had become a liability, dropped him. His fans raised an almighty ruckus and A&E chose discretion over valor, doubtless realizing the people most likely to be offended by the man probably werent watching him in the first place. Now Robertson returns just in time for a new controversy. It seems an old video has surfaced in which he lists the qualities a man should seek in a prospective wife. She should be 15 or 16 years old, advises the duck hunter and a good cook. Great. So now we get to see how child marriage plays in the marketplace of ideas. God bless America.Leonard Pitts is a columnist for The Miami Herald, 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL 33132. Readers may contact him via email at email@example.com.

Sometimes insightful, sometimes malicious, online commentary runs the gamut from constructive observations to destructive vilification, and all levels in between. Protected by anonymity, free from having to face the person about whom charges are being made, and sometimes fueled with anger, resentment and irrational thinking, online comments skewer politicians and products alike. There is growing concern among some companies that things have simply gotten out of hand, and they are taking steps to rein in the more outrageous comments. For example, the Huffington Post now employs 40 human moderators to sort through online comments to eliminate racism, hate speech, and the like. Others are requiring online commentators to use their real names, not just screen names that protect their anonymity. One of the more extreme examples is the decision by PopularScience to shut off online comments on its articles. In announcing their decision, the magazine said we are as committed to fostering lively, intellectual debate as we are to spreading the word of science far and wide. The problem is when trolls and spambots overwhelm the former, diminishing our ability to do the latter. Part of the logic of this kind of decision is the fact that an estimated 60 percent of Americans seeking information about specific scientific matters say the Internet is their primary source of information. This ranks it higher than any other news source. With reputable scientists and anyone with access to a computer commanding equal space on the Web, one of the concerns is that rude and uncivil commentary can shape opinion of the article about which comments are being made. In a study last year involving 1,183 participants, half were given civil comments that both supported and differed with the article they read, while the other half were given rude and caustic comments. Both the civil and rude comments made the same essential points, but the uncivil comments not only polarized readers they changed readers interpretation of the article itself. While some individuals believe a company editing or refusing to publish their comments is an infringement of their First Amendment rights, the fact is that freedom of speech is a government issue, not one for private businesses. The government cannot restrict an individuals right to say whatever they choose, but private businesses that own websites have every right to restrict what is placed on their websites. In online commentary, as in many areas, excesses lead to restrictions. When online comment becomes abusive or obscene, companies owning the websites can be expected to take steps to limit or restrict what appears on the website they own. It is not a matter of freedom of speech it is a matter of companies setting and enforcing standards of civil discourse regarding what appears on their website. THE ISSUE:Companies taking steps to control online comment.OUR OPINION:Excesses lead to restrictions.

According to his arrest affidavit, deputies attempted to pull Brentlinger over for inoperative brakes lights. He is accused of increasing his speed and driving in a reckless manner. At one point the vehicle stopped and the passenger exited. As the deputy approached the vehicle on foot, the accused sped away, traveling approximately four miles, until the vehicle ran out of gas or broke down. Bond $5,900. Natesha Cooper, 34, of Parkside Avenue, Inverness, at 12:07 p.m. Jan. 6 on an active Monroe County warrant for felony violation of probation stemming from an original charge of driving while license suspended or revoked.

Bond was denied. she wrote. He was genuine and had a genuineness about him ... and he was an artist with words. DaVinci worked in marble; Botticelli in oils and Boris in profanity. It was his true medium. A master, he spoke so beautifully. And if he ever approached you and initiated a conversation with, Hey, have you heard the one about the priest, the Jew and the Muslim that walk into a bar? you knew it was time to quickly find a patient chart that desperately needed updating. That was the great thing about him. He was a brilliant doctor who was just a real person, struggling with all the same challenges, and more, that we all struggle with. His strengths were self-evident, but he was one of those exceptional people who turn their weaknesses into strengths that end up enriching all around him, she said. You knew when Dr. Boris was around his cologne preceded him. He wore worn jeans and kept his patient list rolled up and stuffed into his jeans pocket. His handwriting was nearly impossible to decipher, and he insisted that you were the one with an accent, not him. His high-fives were legendary. He drove a Hummer H3. CMHS case manager Jill Thacher recalled his compassion, noting the many times he handed her his ATM card to get cash downstairs and then he would hand it to a patient who couldnt afford to pay for medications. Beattie, too, recalled his compassion for patients. He often saw patients that society had thrown away homeless patients, addicted patients yet he took the time to talk to them and give them hope, she said. I would watch him from the doorway as he would hold their hands and speak words of encouragement, and I was so proud of him and proud to work with him. Sometimes his words brought tears to my eyes. He made me a better nurse. The doctors and nurses of Citrus Memorial didnt just lose a remarkable physician, we lost a friend. We worked very closely together when I was a case manager/utilization review R.N. at CMH, said Toni Manna Scott.

I called him my big little brother. He was a true humanitarian, and a good friend. I feel the loss deeply, she said. Dr. Dean Toumbis, CMHS chief of staff, said Todorovics passing has definitely left a hole among the staff. It is with great sadness that the medical staff and I say farewell to a well respected and cared for member of Citrus Memorial Health System, he said. Dr. Boris will always be remembered as an intelligent, thoughtful and caring physician. His sense of humor will be greatly missed by both physicians and patients. ... He worked tirelessly to provide excellent medical care to our community. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. The memorial service for Dr. Boris Todorovic is at noon Saturday, Jan. 11, at Allen J. Harden Funeral Home, 1800 N. Donnelly St., Mount Dora.

Scott said in a letter to Cook that he had confidence in Cooks abilities to oversee the office. Thank you for your willingness to serve the people of Citrus County in this time of need upon the sudden passing of The Honorable Geoffrey Greene, Scott wrote. The appointment is until November, when a special election to fill the final two years of Greenes term will coincide with the regular 2014 elections. Cook, a 33-year veteran of the Property Appraisers Office, has served as second in command for nine years four with former appraiser Melanie Hensley and five during Greenes tenure. Im really humbled by the governors action, Cook said. Community leaders were quick to praise the appointment. Good move, county commission Chairman John JJ Kenney said. Every dealing Ive had with him was an extremely pleasant experience. Inverness attorney Clark Stillwell, who often represents the interests of developers and land owners, also lauded the move. The guys a databank when it comes to valuations and how you get there, Stillwell said. I know Geoff relied on him extensively. Tax Collector Janice Warren added: In light of the tremendous loss of the honorable Geoff Greene, this appointment brings a measure of stability to the property appraisers staff as they carry out their duties to service the citizens. Cooks task is daunting. He must lead a team of 50 employees while helping them deal with the loss of their beloved boss. Were still working through our grief, he said. Its an unfortunate way for this to occur. Im just trying to make sure we have the continuity of operations and maintain the integrity of the office. Its been a tough couple days. Cooks background within the office is extensive. He started in 1980 as a data field surveyor, someone who would go out looking for new housing construction to add to the tax rolls. Since then, hes been the residential appraiser, senior commercial manager, director of appraisals, director of real property, chief deputy and assistant property appraiser, the position he held until Scotts appointment. I have a good handle on the way the place is run, Cook said. Regarding the Duke lawsuits, where the utility is disputing its 2012 and 2013 property taxable values, Cook promised a fresh look. Im not predetermined in any direction, he said. I think its prudent to step back and review everything thats occurred. Cook, 56, has lived in Homosassa since 1987. He moved to Citrus County in 1980 from Newcastle, Del., where he grew up. He is married and has one daughter. He said other county offices have offered employees to fill in should his workers feel the need for bereavement time off. If someone needed an extra break, I basically said well have to give everyone an extra ounce of grace this week, Cook said. Were holding up pretty good. I met with the staff this morning and informed them of my appointment. They had improved from yesterday. Theyre still focused on getting the job done.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com. were en route to Gainesville. Wheeler was pronounced dead at the scene. Brennan suffered injuries and was transported by ambulance to Citrus Memorial hospital. Vichots injuries required her to be airlifted to Shands Hospital in Gainesville. The minivan flipped and ended up on its roof, with Wheeler and her mother dangling with only their seatbelts holding them up, according to attorney Keith Taylor. Taylor is suing D.A.B. Constructors of Inglis, pavers of the road, and Vichot and her husband, Antonio Vichot, for negligence. Taylor is representing Wheelers husband, Paul, and Wheelers mother in the suit. During opening arguments Tuesday before Judge Patricia Thomas, he alleged D.A.B. failed to follow a road-building standard by piling more than 3 inches of asphalt on the roadway, thus creating a drop-off area on the edges of the road. Taylor said because of a kink in the road and that drop-off edge, when Vichot veered off the road, she had difficulty correcting and ended up overcorrecting and crossing over into Wheelers oncoming vehicle. Taylor told jurors that during the trial, expected to last at least two weeks, he will present evidence D.A.B. failed to heed safety standards with inadequate signage to warn motorists about the drop-off zone. He also told the jury about harms and losses suffered by the family such as the emotional hurt inflicted on the Wheeler family and their three children. He also spoke of the emotional state of widower Paul and Wheelers mother, who have been struggling since her death factors, Taylor said, jurors should consider when its time to mete out compensation. However, D.A.B. attorney Charles McKeon said while he acknowledges the pain of the Wheeler and Brennan families, his client paved the road according to the dictates of the contract. McKeon also told jurors there are differing sides to every story, and that Taylors assertions are not backed by the evidence hell present during the trial. He specifically challenged the notion that the road had a kink in it and that the roadway was more than 3 inches high. He said only an inch and a half of asphalt was to be added. He scoffed at accusations about D.A.B. not heeding safety measures, saying the company has won numerous awards for safety. On their trucks, it says safety first, McKeon told jurors. He hinted that Vichot was on the phone and got distracted, causing the crash. The Vichots attorney, Thomas Robert Unice, denied his client was on the phone when the wreck happened. Instead he tried to shore up Taylors arguments about the cause of the crash with all fingers pointed at D.A.B.s alleged safety failures. He said Taylors expert witness on road safety wrote the book on it, and would clarify them for the jurors when he testifies. The trial continues in Thomas courtroom Wednesday.

NATION& WORLD Page A10WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Stranded by the storm Associated PressCHICAGO The Amtrak train slowed to a crawl as it hammered through snowdrifts in an empty stretch of Illinois countryside, delivering thuds and jolts to passengers, until it lurched into a mound big enough to grind its 8,000-horsepower engine to a halt. About 90 miles short of their Chicago destination, passengers ended up stuck on the train overnight, reading books, watching movies on computers and taking what amusement they could from a conductor who cracked jokes over the intercom. Food ran low and some tempers boiled over, but staff kept the heat on, entertained children and even escorted small groups of people outside for smoke breaks. You hear those horror stories about the cars that stop in the snow and they freeze to death. I thought, Oh God, this is going to happen, were going to be in blankets, said passenger Chris Smith. They werent alone. Across huge swaths of the country, the polar vortex froze travel and left motorists, airline passengers and commuters fighting to stay in motion and, when that failed, fighting to stave off boredom and cold. Airlines again canceled several thousand flights Tuesday, as the extreme cold slowed everything from baggage-handling to refueling. On the roads, powerful winds pushing snow into desert-like dunes forced authorities to shut major highways, including a 75-mile stretch of Interstate 81 north of Syracuse, N.Y., to the Canadian border. The snow-bound train stuck near the tiny village of Arlington in north-central Illinois was one of three Amtrak trains carrying a total of 500 passengers that got stuck in the state overnight. Amtrak officials eventually got them to safety, then bused them to their destinations. Smiths train began its journey in warm Los Angeles but rolled into trouble in the frozen Midwest. They started to cut through heavier and heavier drifts, said Smith, 45, a sound designer for films who got on the train at Garden City, Kan. The passenger on my side was joking, he said, I think we ran over somebody. They werent huge bumps, but it was enough to jerk the train. When the train stopped altogether, around 4 p.m. Monday, a conductor came on the loudspeaker and quipped, As you can see, theres a little bit of snow out there. At first it was kind of funny, and our conductor had a good sense of humor about it, and then it stopped being funny, said Carley Lintz, a 21-year-old journalism student on her way back to Northwestern University from her home in Gardner, Kan. Associated PressPassengers unload their luggage Tuesday at Union Station in Chicago after their Amtrak train from Los Angeles became stuck in s now drifts. The severe weather forced hundreds of Amtrak passengers to spend the night onboard three trains stranded because of snow in northern Illinois. Airstrike kills 25 militants Jobless bill clears hurdle Associated PressWASHINGTON Election-year legislation to revive expired federal jobless benefits unexpectedly cleared an early hurdle on Tuesday, offering a hint of bipartisan compromise in Congress and a glimmer of hope to the long-term jobless and their families. Lets get this done, implored President Barack Obama at the White House, shortly after six Republicans sided with Democrats on a 60-37 Senate vote to keep the measure alive. Even so, the fate of the three-month reinstatement remained uncertain in an atmosphere of intense partisanship at the dawn of an election year. The two parties have made it clear they intend to battle for the support of millions of voters who have suffered economically through the worst recession in decades and the slow, plodding recovery that has followed. The often-cited phrase is income disparity the gap between the rich and the economically squeezed. Democrats are expected to follow the effort on jobless benefits with another pocketbook measure, a proposal to increase the federal minimum wage. Associated PressBAGHDAD A government airstrike killed 25 al-Qaida-linked militants in a besieged province west of Baghdad amid fierce clashes Tuesday between Iraqi special forces and insurgents battling for control of the key cities of Fallujah and Ramadi, Iraqi officials said. The al-Qaida gains in the Sunni-dominated province of Anbar once bloody battlegrounds for U.S. troops pose the most serious challenge to Prime Minister Nouri al-Malikis Shiite-led government since the departure of American forces in late 2011. Iraqi forces and fighters from government-allied Sunni tribes have been battling militants to try to recapture the strategic territory, seized last week by an al-Qaida-linked group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. Iraqi military spokesman Gen. Mohammed al-Askari said the Iraqi air force struck an operations center for the militants on the outskirts of Ramadi, the provincial capital, killing 25 fighters who were holed up inside. He didnt give more details about how the death toll was confirmed but cited intelligence reports. It was not possible to independently verify the militarys claim. The airstrike came after clashes erupted about 12 miles west of Fallujah following the capture of an army officer and four soldiers in the area a day earlier, provincial spokesman Dhari al-Rishawi said. Al-Malikis government has vowed to rout the militants, calling on Fallujah residents Monday to expel the al-Qaida fighters to avoid an all-out battle.

A surprising surge in domestic production of light, sweet crude a particular type of oil that foreign refiners covet has triggered growing calls to lift the restrictions, which were put in place after the Arab oil embargo of 1973.Embattled Los Angeles County sheriff to retireMONTEREY PARK, Calif. Embattled Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said he will not seek reelection to a fifth term and will retire at the end of the month. In an emotional statement outside sheriffs headquarters Tuesday, the 71-year-old Baca said the major reason was what he termed the negative perception the upcoming campaign would have on his department. The department and Bacas leadership have been under increasing scrutiny. Eighteen current and former sheriffs deputies were recently indicted for alleged crimes that included beating inmates and jail visitors, falsifying reports, and trying to obstruct an FBI probe of the nations largest jail system.Former workers charged in disability scamNEW YORK Scores of retired New York City police officers, firefighters and prison guards were charged Tuesday with faking psychiatric problems to get federal disability benefits with some falsely claiming their conditions arose after the Sept. 11 attacks, prosecutors said. Four ringleaders coached the former workers on how to falsely describe symptoms of depression and other mental health problems that allowed them to get payouts high as $500,000, said Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. The ringleaders made tens of thousands of dollars in secret kickbacks, he said. Legion of Christ comes to critical junctureVATICAN CITY The Legion of Christ religious order is electing new leadership for the first time since its founder was revealed to have been a pedophile and a fraud. The process starting Wednesday will formally end the Vaticans threeyear rehabilitation of the movement, a reform the Legion is touting as a success and critics have dismissed as a sham. The Legions hope is that following the monthlong meeting, Pope Francis will approve a new constitution that explains the orders mission, hierarchy and rules and will allow the Legion to move on without any more Vatican oversight.Ex-Miss Venezuela slain in highway robberyCARACAS, Venezuela A former Miss Venezuela and her ex-husband were shot and killed and their 5-yearold daughter wounded when they resisted robbers by locking themselves inside their car after tire punctures disabled it on an isolated stretch of highway, police said Tuesday. The slaying of Monica Spear, 29, a popular soap-opera actress, and Thomas Henry Berry, a 39-year-old British citizen, was the latest highprofile crime in a country where killings are common in armed robberies and where rampant kidnapping has ensnared even foreign ambassadors and professional baseball players.US Air Force helicopter crashes in EnglandLONDON A U.S. Air Force Pave Hawk helicopter crashed in the coastal marshes of eastern England during a training mission on Tuesday night, killing all four crew members aboard, officials said.

The aircraft was based at the nearby Royal Air Force station in Lakenheath, Suffolk County, which hosts USAF units and personnel.

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher says winning the national championship was the culmination of a four-year process that began when he replaced Bobby Bowden as the head of the program in 2010. The next challenge is to sustain that success. Fisher now finds himself in Bowdens old shoes where titles will be expected from a passionate fan base. Florida State beat Auburn 34-31 Monday night to win its first crown since 1999. Youve got to go back to ground zero and you cant worry about expectations, Fisher said Tuesday. Thats the thing, once expectations get so high, is to not let complacency set in. Its human nature, you take winning for granted. You take success for granted, he said. A quick glance at the roster shows why Florida State (14-0) will enter 2014 as the favorite. The Seminoles return Heisman quarterback Jameis Winston for his sophomore season and lose just three senior offensive starters. Florida State must replace four senior defensive starters and Fisher said he thinks there are up to three underclassmen who have decisions to make about a possible move to the NFL. The future is bright, freshman cornerback Jalen Ramsey said. We know what it takes now. We know how it feels. We dont want to be disappointed next year from not being here. We want to make this thing a dynasty. Florida State is back to where it should always be. That senior class was Fishers first as head coach and was the cornerstone of the new foundation. The 2011 class, however, was widely considered the FSU breaks SEC run as No. 1 Associated PressPASADENA, Calif. Move over SEC. Florida State is back on top. Florida State finished No. 1 in the final Associated Press college football poll, ending the Southeastern Conferences record streak of seven national championships. The Seminoles received all 60 first-place votes from the media panel after beating Auburn 34-31 in the BCS championship game on Monday night in the Rose Bowl. Florida States third AP national title (1993 and ) ties it for ninth-most with rival Florida and Texas. The Tigers (12-2) finished second in their extraordinary turnaround season, but for the first time since Texas was No. 1 in 2005, the Southeastern Conference is not on top of the final rankings. Michigan State was third, followed by South Carolina and Missouri. Oklahoma finished sixth and Alabama was No. 7. So the SEC will have to settle for having four teams in the top seven. The SEC has seven ranked teams overall with No. 14 LSU, No. 18 Texas A&M and No. 24 Vanderbilt. No. 8 Clemson, Oregon and UCF completed the top 10. UCF has never been ranked higher. No. 11 Stanford, No. 12 Ohio State and No. 13 Baylor finished outside the top 10 after spending much of the season in the elite group. No. 15 Louisville was followed by UCLA and Oklahoma State. Southern California is 19th and Pac-12 rival Arizona State is 20th. The final five were Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Duke, Vanderbilt and Washington. Greg Maddux wont be unanimous Hall selection Final pollsSee Page B3 for the final AP and USA Today college football polls. See FOCUSED/ Page B3 Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher reacts Monday with The Coaches Trophy after the NCAA BCS National Championship game against Auburn in Pasadena, Calif. Florida State won 34-31.Associated Press 2014 HOF class announced today Associated PressNEW YORK Greg Maddux could break a 22-year-old record today, though he wont become the first unanimous selection in the history of the baseball writers Hall of Fame ballot. When Tom Seaver received 425 of 430 votes in 1992, his 98.84 percentage topped the mark set by Ty Cobb in 1936. A dominant pitcher when offense ruled in the Steroids Era, Maddux has a chance to enter Cooperstown with a little extra bit of fame. I just have just never come across any human being, whether theyre a voter or just a fan, that doesnt think Greg Maddux is a Hall of Famer and one of the greatest pitchers who ever pitched, The Boston GlobesNick Cafardo said Tuesday. I cant imagine someone not voting for him. So I would guess that hes going to break Seavers record. Maddux is among three high-profile players on the Baseball Writers Association of America ballot for the first time, joined by former Atlanta Braves teammate Tom Glavine and Chicago White Sox slugger Frank Thomas. Holdovers include Craig Biggio, who topped voting at 68 percent last year, 39 votes short of the 75 percent needed for election. It was only the second time in four decades the BBWAA failed to elect anyone. Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, a former reporter for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, said Tuesday the only player he voted for was Jack Morris, on the writers ballot for the 15th and final time after falling 42 votes shy last year. To me, I didnt exclude Maddux. I excluded everybody from that era, everybody from the Steroid Era, Gurnick said. It wasnt about Greg Maddux, it was about the entire era. I just dont know who did and who didnt. Gurnick said Morris also was the only player he voted for in 2013 and added he intends to abstain in future elections. Some people quibble over when the era starts, but the bulk of his career was in my opinion well before all of the widespread use of performance-enhancing drugs, Gurnick said.

The Saints edged the Pirates 47-43. Shots dont drop down the stretch as Pirates fall to St. John Lutheran JON-MICHAELSORACCHI Staff writerOn a night when the Crystal River boys basketball team had plenty of opportunities because of forced turnovers, the Pirates would eventually be done in by their inability to hit a shot down the stretch. St. John Lutheran held off a late Crystal River rally to escape the Pirates gym with a 47-43 victory on Tuesday. It always hurts a little more. We took a few timeouts and drew up some plays ... we got exactly the look we wanted and they just didnt go down, said Crystal River assistant coach Nick Jahnke, who filled in for head coach Steve Feldman, who was snowed in in Chicago. Jordan Bates, a junior, led all players with 21 points and 14 rebounds for the Saints, while teammate Freddy Goins added 12 points. Bates was a force inside (he was one shy of the Pirates 15 team rebounds by himself) and outside by knocking down a trio of 3s. As a team, St. John Lutheran knocked down five of its 12 three-point attempts. Crystal River, on the other hand, took 26 long-range shots and connected on just seven. For Crystal River (3-10 overall), senior guard Ty Reynolds paced all Pirates with 11 points while fellow senior Hunter Roesser Crystal Rivers team captain added 10 as the only other Pirate in Items stolen from St. Johns locker roomJON-MICHAELSORACCHI Staff writerSometime Tuesday night during the varsity basketball contest between Crystal River High School and visiting Ocala St. John Lutheran, St. Johns locker room was the victim of theft.

At least he gets to go out on his terms. After more than two years of not having full status, the 49-year-old Austin appeared out of nowhere in Mississippi last summer and won the Sanderson Farms Championship. That got him back to Kapalua, which meant the world to him. Especially when youre about to turn 50 and have status, he said. Austin turns 50 in three weeks, though he has no plans to play on the Champions Tour except for any major he gets in. Kapalua was just a start. Austin is most looking forward to the courses he was kept from playing when he lost his card Bay Hill, Hilton Head, Colonial and Memorial. I dont plan on being one of those half guys, he said of splitting time on two tours. If I dont get in the FedEx Cup (playoffs) and have six weeks off, then Ill go play some on the Champions Tour. But I want to play out here. Austin lost his card in 2010 when he missed four cuts in his last seven events and finished at No. 129 on the money list. He got into only 18 tournaments the following year on conditional status, and only seven events in 2012 as a past champion.GWAA awardsThe Golf Writers Association of America is honoring Ken Duke for his perseverance, Graeme McDowell for his accommodation and insight with the media, and Rhonda Glenn for her contributions to the game. Duke won the Ben Hogan Award for remaining active in golf despite a physical ailment. He was diagnosed with scoliosis in the seventh grade and had a 16-inch rod attached to his spine. Duke toiled for 10 years in the minor leagues before he made it to the PGA Tour, and then 10 years later won for the first time at the Travelers Championship. Duke said he was overwhelmed, especially to win an award linked to Hogan.

JCT Tournament of Champions Eric van den HoogenON TENNIS Putting for wins Johnson piling up numbers that cant be ignored Associated PressHONOLULU Zach Johnson plays good golf. He just doesnt like to hear about it. A few years back, Tiger Woods was talking about a small group of players he considered to be good putters when he mentioned Johnson. Told about this, Johnson laughed. He only thinks Im a good putter because he only sees me on TV, Johnson said that day in 2007 at Carnoustie. And the only time Im on TV is when Im playing well. And when Im playing well, Im putting well. The normal guy from Cedar Rapids thats how Johnson described himself when he won the Masters has never looked at himself as anything special. But theres no denying the record. Already one of the more underrated if not underappreciated players in golf, Johnson picked up his 11th win on the PGA Tour when he matched the best score of the final round Monday with a 7-under 66 to win the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua. It should be noted that before the tournament began, Johnson ran into caddie Lance Bennett and told him, I never play well here. Good players win anywhere. Johnson is the latest pea shooter in this era of power to show there is still no substitute for crisp iron play, superb wedges and great putting. Justin Leonard has won 12 times, including the British Open and two playoff losses in the majors. Luke Donald became the first player to win the money title on the PGA Tour and European Tour in the same season when he rose to No. 1 in the world, a position he held longer than Vijay Singh, Nick Price and (so far) Rory McIlroy. The difference among those three is their pedigree. Leonard was a star at Texas who won the U.S. Amateur and is in that elite group of players who never had to go to Q-school. Donald won an NCAA title at Northwestern. Johnson played at Drake. He went through two cars both a Dodge Intrepid driving to places like Beatrice, Neb., and Salina, Kan., while trying to convince himself he could play this game for a living. He toiled on the Teardrop Tour, the Dakotas Tour and even something called the Prairie Tour. He was that scrappy little kid on the basketball court who wiped down the sole of his sneakers before crouching to play defense. He played four sports in high school because he loved to compete. Johnson started running out of options when everyone outgrew him. The question I always get is, How did I pick golf? I didnt. Golf picked me, Johnson once said. It was a way to level the playing field. You could get away with finesse and strategy versus power. Get away with it? He thrives on it. His win in the Masters is famous for the way he stuck to his plan of laying up on all the par 5s, even if he had a chance to reach them (it also was cold and brittle that year, which certainly helped). Johnson had a favorable wind at Kapalua that allowed him to reach a couple of the par 5s, though it was his iron play and wedges that set him apart. He looks like David. He plays like Goliath. Johnson has won three times in his last six starts, including the World Challenge last month when he holed out from the drop zone for par on the last hole to get into a playoff, and then beat Woods on the first extra hole at Sherwood. His victory Monday sent him to a career-best No. 7 in the world. Another good performance at the Sony Open this week and he might move past McIlroy and Phil Mickelson. Woods, Mickelson and Vijay Singh are the only players who have more PGA Tour wins since Johnson since he joined the tour in 2004. Associated PressZach Johnson putts Monday during the final round of the Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii.

Then theres the 2012 class that includes Winston, another handful of starters and more young talent that had to wait their turn. This was not an old team that will need to replace starters all over the field. I dont care how talented you are, Fisher maintained. This team has to go back, get its own identity, get its own leadership and develop that, and thats going to be our challenge now. Its how hungry can you stay to be able to do it over and over again, and thats going to be the challenge and our mindset and thats going to be my temperament going in, to be able to set that stage so we can do that and stay on top and be very competitive at the top. Thats our nature as humans, its not too grind, its not to push. Thats why there is only one champion at the end, he said. Fisher did get a chance to savor the moment late after the game, surrounded by friends and family in his hotel room. He sat half asleep in a chair, exhausted, and nursed a pulled hamstring he sustained running down the sideline and chasing an official after Auburn wasnt called for a horse collar tackle at the end of a catch-and-run by Rashad Green late in the game. You feel like you want to sleep for about a week after these seasons, Fisher said. Well get back tomorrow and give the staff a day or so and then well get back recruiting and we got to get going. Its time for another one, he said. Twenty years after Florida State won its first national championship under Bowden, the Seminoles won the third in school history with his successor. The Seminoles broke a string of seven consecutive national champions from the SEC. Now Fisher and Bowden both have an undefeated season on their resumes. Its kind of fitting to me, Fisher said. It was Miami and Florida State every year. They had the teams. They were in it, the Nebraskas, the Oklahomas. The SEC couldnt get in it. But I think its very fitting that Florida State come full circle back and like I say, maybe we dont play in the SEC but we play in the South and weve got good football. Its like the reckoning. Things are getting back in order again, he said. FOCUSEDContinued from Page b1 Five in double figures pace Citrus past WildwoodFive players scored in double figures Tuesday night as the Citrus boys basketball team handled Wildwood 71-52 in Inverness. Mitchell Ellis led the balanced scoring attack with 15 points. Ben Janicki added 14, Devin Pryor 12 and Sam Franklin and Desmond Simmons added 10 points each. The Hurricanes (13-2) host Nature Coast tonight at 7:30 p.m.Former Florida State player dies in hotelBRADENTON Former NFL and Florida State offensive tackle Todd Williams has been found dead in a Tampa Bay area hotel. The Manatee County Sheriffs Office reported that deputies responded to the Sarasota Suites late Monday morning, just hours before the Seminoles won a national championship. The 35-year-old Bradenton native had reportedly complained to his mother of feeling sick on Friday. She found his body Monday. Sheriffs spokesman Dave Bristow said they havent found anything suspicious, but an autopsy will be performed. Williams was one of the states top prospects after his senior season at Southeast High in Bradenton. He was a redshirt freshman on the Seminoles 1999 national champion team. He was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in the 2003 NFL draft and went on to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers.Ireland out as Dolphins GM after six seasonsMIAMI Jeff Ireland is out after six seasons as general manager of the Miami Dolphins, who have failed to reach the playoffs the past five years. In a brief announcement Tuesday, owner Stephen Ross said he and Ireland mutually agreed to part ways. Ireland had been unpopular with fans for several years, and a late-season collapse by the team last month left his job in jeopardy. The Dolphins, who finished 8-8, said they would conduct an immediate search for a replacement to lead football operations.Missouri RB Henry Josey declares for NFL draftCOLUMBIA, Mo. Missouri junior running back Henry Josey has declared for the NFL draft. Tuesdays announcement comes four days after Josey was the offensive player of the game for the Tigers Cotton Bowl victory over Oklahoma State. Josey ran for three touchdowns, including the goahead score. Josey missed all of 2012 with a left knee injury, and rebounded this year with 1,166 yards rushing while ranking second in the SEC with 16 touchdowns.Petrino interviews for Louisville jobA person familiar with the situation said Western Kentucky coach Bobby Petrino has interviewed with Louisville for its opening. The person said the former Arkansas coach met Tuesday with Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich, who is seeking a replacement for Charlie Strong after he took the Texas job over the weekend. The person also said Cardinals offensive coordinator Shawn Watson and defensive coordinator Vance Bedford are among several candidates that have interviewed for the position.US skiing star Vonn out of Sochi OlympicsLess than two weeks after reconstructive right knee surgery in February 2013, Lindsey Vonn already was sounding a positive note, saying she was really looking forward to Sochi and defending her Olympic downhill gold medal. Along the way to the next Winter Games, though, Vonn began facing more setbacks. As shed move past one, another would surface. In the end, it was too much, even for Vonn, the most accomplished U.S. ski racer in history. Expected to be one of the biggest stars at the upcoming Games, Vonn announced Tuesday exactly one month before the opening ceremony she wont be able to race in Russia. Vonn left the 2010 Vancouver Games with two medals: the first Olympic downhill gold for an American woman, and a bronze in the super-G.From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS in 2013, Maddux likely could be omitted from six this year and still break Seavers record. The Steroids Era has impacted the vote totals of players with stellar statistics. In initial appearances last year, Mike Piazza was at 57.8 percent, Roger Clemens at 37.6, Barry Bonds at 36.2 and Sammy Sosa at 12.5. Mark McGwire received 16.9 on his seventh try. The Baseball Think Factory website compiled votes by writers who made their opinions public, and with 161 ballots had Maddux at 99 percent, followed by Glavine (96), Thomas (91) and Biggio (79). The websites count had Piazza (68), Jeff Bagwell (61) and Morris (60) falling short along with Tim Raines (55), Bonds (42), Clemens (41), Curt Schilling (37) and Mike Mussina (29). McGwire (14) and Sosa (8) had little support. Eighth on the wins list with a 355-227 record and a 3.16 ERA over 23 seasons, Maddux won four consecutive Cy Young Awards from 1992-95 and a record 18 Gold Gloves with the Chicago Cubs, Atlanta, the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego. An eighttime All-Star, he won at least 13 games in 20 straight seasons. Next years ballot could be even more crowded when Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, John Smoltz, Carlos Delgado and Gary Sheffield become eligible, five years after their retirements. The BBWAA last month formed a committee to study whether the organization should ask the Hall to change the limit of 10 players per ballot. HALLContinued from Page b1 double figures. St. John entered the fourth quarter with a 38-33 lead and pushed its advantage to 43-35 after scoring five of the first seven points netted between the two teams. With scoring at a premium, the Pirates got five straight points from Reynolds on a free throw, a layup and two more shots from the charity stripe after being fouled on a three-point attempt with 1:11 left. That pulled Crystal River within 43-40, but the Pirates missed two 3s down the stretch that could have closed the gap. In between, Goins knocked down a pair of free throws and Bates finished with a layup in traffic after the Saints broke Crystal Rivers full-court press to build an insurmountable 47-40 margin. Roessler canned a 3-pointer with 12 seconds left, but that only provided the final margin as Crystal River couldnt draw any closer. In the first half, Crystal Rivers zone defense forced the visitors into 12 turnovers and the Pirates led 23-20 at the break. Especially in the first half, I thought we were doing a good job of being active, closing out and getting our hands on the ball, Jahnke said. I was really surprised because they usually take care of the ball really well. The Pirates play tonight at Belleview. MISSEDContinued from Page B1

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher was thrilled with the way Jameis Winston ran the twominute drill to win the BCS national championship. That wasnt the case leading up to the big game. Fisher says he kicked the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback out of the final practice before the Seminoles left Florida to travel to California. Fisher says he took issue with how Winston was performing during a two-minute drill and sent the quarterback to the locker room. The thing about two-minute that youve got to be real careful of, its not about you, Fisher said Tuesday. You can get so involved that youre going to win the game the key is to use all the weapons around you. He did that in that game. The mindset that you have to have, which he had all year, I just saw it drifting, he said. On Monday night, Winston led the top-ranked Seminoles on an 80-yard drive inside the Rose Bowl. He threw a 2-yard touchdown pass with 13 seconds left to beat No. 2 Auburn 34-31 and finish off a perfect season for Florida State. Fisher said the two came away from that practice in Florida with a better understanding of each other. Fisher, however, has the final say. Its good to be the king, Fisher said. Hell be the king one day. When hes in pro ball he might have thrown the coach out. But the thing about it, though, he waited for me to get off the field and we had a long discussion and we had it out. Hes an unbelievable guy to be able to process and transition and go right back. It was just a point I thought I needed to make to him at the present time as a young guy, and like I say, sometimes you have to be their coach. You cant be their friend, he said.

Section CWEDNESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE CRYSTAL RIVERNursing is her job, but nursing children is her passion. Rock Crusher Elementary and Crystal River Middle schools licensed practical nurse Colette Nichols-Watson has been caring for children in Citrus County for 14 years. ERYN WORTHINGTON/ChronicleCrystal River Middle School seventh-grader Breanon Foster visited the clinic when she was not feeling well. The Colette Nichols-Watson checked her temperature. When I first started, I was at Lecanto and Floral City Elementary schools, she said. Every school has a different need in how they utilize a school nurse. Some schools utilize me more in the guidance department like the middle school. She explained that a lot of issues the guidance department sees can be related indirectly to a health issue. For example, kids at this age are experiencing changing bodies and having proper-hygiene issues, she said. It helps to have me in there. I can explain things to them in a realistic health reason and not just a social reason why. Nichols-Watson said that practicing at two schools gives her an opportunity to help medically fragile children transition into the middle school. Many of the Rock Crusher students come to Crystal River Middle School, she said. When they get to Crystal River Middle School, they already have a trust and relationship with me. How does she handle children that require intense medical attention? We work with the families and physicians to get care plans and plans of actions for them and make sure we communicate to staff, she said. To me, the biggest and most important thing is to identify the children that are medically needy and to make sure the staff are informed of what to do in the event of an emergency. And, I know that is important to the rest of the staff, she said. They are teachers; they are not nurses. They shouldnt be asked to be medics; they should just know how to react in an emergency. We are the bridge between the parents and the staff. For instance, we have one child who has a heart condition, she said. We have a code word because we also have to abide by HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) laws. Once the code word is announced, there is an action plan put into place right away. Furthermore, communication is most vital to her. I also think it is important that we all get together into one room and meet, she said. I work with the guidance department and we meet with the parents. I think it is important that we all get together. A lot of times teachers think of things we wouldnt think of. Sometimes the best people to get information from are the parents or the kids. They know the most about their condition. What would she like parents to be aware of? We have so many resources like the vision and hearing screenings, Watson said. We only screen certain grade levels, but we have the capability to screen any child in the school. We also have the means to help them get help if they want it. Watson said approximately 85 to 90 students are seen per day in the school clinic. About 15 of those students come in daily for medications and blood glucose checks. And her calls dont stop in the clinic. We get a lot of calls to the football field, Watson said. We have a clinic golf cart parked outside the door so that we can run quickly out to the field. However, her day-to-day interaction with the students is what she cherishes most. A kid wrote me a note one time that said, I like when I come to the clinic because you actually ask about me and how I am, Watson said with a smile on her face. I think it takes like a second to say to a kid, How are you? or What did you do this weekend? You see kids that are dressed to the nines and you tell them they look pretty. Then you look at the kid next to him or her and they may not be. But I always find something to compliment him or her on. It takes like a second to do and it lifts them up by just being nice.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-5635660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@ chronicleonline.com. Associated PressWASHINGTON The Supreme Court has turned away an appeal from sisters in western Pennsylvania who sued the local school system for its failure to stop another student from verbally and physically assaulting them in 2008. Sisters Brittany and Emily Morrow contended that the Blackhawk School district in Pennsylvanias Beaver County had a constitutional duty to protect them from another students bullying. A deeply divided federal appeals court in Philadelphia upheld a trial judges dismissal of the lawsuit. The justices said Monday they will not review that decision. The case is Morrow v. Balaski, 13-302. High court wont look at bullying in schools Special to the ChronicleCommon Core has become a familiar term in the news and in our conversations and evokes many questions.

On Aug. 25, 2012, the Voyager 1 spacecraft became the first humanmade object to leave our solar system. It could continue sailing between the stars for billions of years. It took about a year before scientists had proof that the craft really had crossed the solar system boundary. They had to analyze data Voyager sent to Earth before they knew for sure. Its twin, Voyager 2, is expected to leave our solar system in about three years. The Mini Page talked with the Voyager chief scientist to find out more about these spacecraft that are exploring billions of miles beyond Earth.The little missions that could In the summer of 1977, NASA launched identical spacecraft, Voyagers 1 and 2. The craft were on an exciting mission to explore Jupiter and Saturn. Scientists hoped the Voyager mission would last five years. But five years later, after finishing their exploration, the spacecraft were still going strong. NASA scientists increased the mission to 12 years. They reprogrammed Voyager 2 to continue on to Uranus and Neptune, where no spacecraft had flown before. Voyager 1 was reprogrammed to travel to the boundaries of the solar system.Going and going Twelve years into their journeys, the Voyagers had completed their new explorations. They were still working. Scientists set even greater goals for the spacecraft. This time, they reprogrammed both Voyager spacecraft to fly into the space between the stars. They renamed the exploratory journey the Voyager Interstellar Mission, or VIM. (Inter means between, and stellar means stars.) Experts believe the Voyagers have enough power left to continue sending data until about 2025.Where No Craft Has Gone BeforeStarcraft Voyager photo courtesy NASA/JPLThe Voyager spacecraft were launched with technology that seems primitive 36 years later. Their radio transmitters operate on only 23 watts, about as much as a refrigerator light bulb. By the time the signals reach Earth, they are less than onebillionth of a watt. Although there are three computers onboard each craft, the total computing power seems tiny today. A smartphone has about 240,000 times more memory than all the Voyager computers put together. photo courtesy NASA/JPLThe Voyager spacecraft launched from Cape Canaveral, Fla., aboard TitanCentaur rockets.

These spacecraft are continuing the human tradition of taking great voyages to explore the unknown. The Voyager spacecraft carry messages to any intelligent life who might someday come across the spacecraft. But the messages are really more of a tribute to the power of human achievement. NASA scientists dont actually expect aliens to encounter the Voyagers. Each Voyager craft has a goldplated, or gold-coated, copper record onboard filled with sounds and pictures from Earth. These are known as the Golden Records. The long-playing, double-sided phonograph records onboard the Voyagers were state-of-the-art at the time. A cartridge and needle to play the record were included on each craft.Planetary discoveries Many Voyager discoveries have surprised scientists, such as an active volcano on Jupiters moon Io. Close-ups of Saturns rings showed billions of tiny particles making up its rings. Experts believe most of them are bits of water ice. The spacecraft measured winds of 1,100 miles per hour at Saturns equator.Messenger in SpaceEarth sampler Scientist Carl Sagan and other experts chose what information to include on the Voyager records. The records have 115 images of people, scenery and animals. Sounds include greetings in 55 languages, music from many cultures, thunder, surf, a dog barking and a whale singing. photo courtesy NASA/JPLThe cover of a Golden Record carries directions for playing the record and shows the location of our solar system. photo courtesy NASA/JPLThree images of Saturn taken by Voyager 2 were joined to make this photograph.

This bubble is called the heliosphere from the Greek word for the sun. The heliosphere is filled with gases from the suns atmosphere. The gases expand, or spread out, as they move away from the sun. The suns magnetic field is also inside the bubble. Electrically charged atomic particles from the gases join with the magnetic field. As these charged gases expand, they carry the magnetic field with them. The partnership of the expanding charged gases and magnetic field creates the bubble, or heliosphere.The future is. It will be about 40,000 years before the Voyagers encounter another star besides the sun. Stars are so far apart in space that it is unlikely that the Voyagers will encounter anything to stop them. Voyager 1 has now joined the stars orbiting around the center of million years for stars to make one orbit around the center.Exploring a New FrontierShowing their age The sun is 4.5 billion years old. Electrically charged particles from the sun are also that old. blow up, scattering their matter through space. Eventually, after millions of years, the matter comes together again and forms new stars. This happens again and again. The matter in interstellar space has not yet come together to form new stars. This means that some of the matter may be only a few million years old. Particles inside the heliosphere are about 4.5 billion years old. The proof Interstellar space is filled with the matter from supernovae, or stars that blew up. In interstellar space, there are about 80 times more ionized atoms* per cubic foot than inside the heliosphere. the greater numbers of ionized atoms, NASA scientists jumped for joy. This was the proof they needed. Voyager 1 had entered interstellar space.*An ionized atom is an atom missing at least one electron.

C6WEDNESDAY, JANUARY8, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.It is inevitable that a meritorious deal or two will be missed by the person choosing the short lists for the annual International Bridge Press Association awards. If this deal had been on the defense list, it might well have won. It occurred during the Italian Club Championship in September 2012 (which was too late for the 2012 awards). Sitting West was Agustin Madala, one of the worlds most talented players, who was born in Argentina but represents Italy. It was originally reported by Ana Roth from Argentina. In the auction, I am not sure about Norths double, which would usually be negative showing length in both minors. Defending against four hearts, Madala led the spade jack, Rusinow, promising the queen. South won with dummys ace and would have done best to start trumps, but he played a club to his ace. West saw that if he were on lead, he would sacrifice a trick with whatever he led. So he discarded a spade. Declarer cashed his top heart. West, still not wanting the lead, threw his king under the ace. South now led a low heart. West continued his brilliant work by playing low. East, Norberto Bocchi, won with his jack and shifted to the diamond queen. Declarer could have escaped for down one by playing low on this trick and on Easts diamond-jack continuation. But in desperation, he covered the queen. West won with his ace, cashed the heart queen, and continued diamonds. The defenders took two hearts and three diamonds for down two.** (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) Th e L as t W or d With Lawrence ODonnell All I n With Ch r i s H ayes (NGC) 109 65 109 44 53Lockdown Drugs, Inc.

Annie, Im sick of it! My twin sister turned her back on me in believing ridiculous lies told by my youngest brother. Several years later, she showed up out of the blue needing a place to live, knowing Old Sis would take her in. She lived with me for eight years until she got a job transfer. She still calls wanting money. Ive learned how to make excuses, but I want it to stop. I need help being upfront with this mooch of a sister, but Ive never confronted anyone before in my entire life. Any advice? Sister of a Mooch Dear Sister: You dont need to be confrontational. You need to be assertive. Your sister takes advantage of you because you permit it. The easiest way to stop permitting it is to learn to say no. So when she asks for money, tell her, Im sorry, but not this time. If she asks why not, reply, I have loaned you enough. Practice saying it in front of a mirror until it comes naturally. Write it down on a piece of paper and tape it next to your phone so it is on hand when she calls. You are under no obligation to give her excuses, evasions or explanations. Be polite, but just say no. Dear Annie: I have been widowed for 19 years and belong to a support group of women who go out to lunch once a month. Before I married my late husband, I was an independent businesswoman, cared for an elderly parent, paid my own bills, pumped my own gas, bought my own cars, etc. I was surprised to learn how few of the women in my group know how to do any of these things. They have no clue what their family finances are. One of them had to learn how to drive when her husband died. Please, please, please tell wives (and husbands) to take responsibility for themselves while their spouses are still living and learn what their financial obligations are, when their bills are due, how to pump gas and all the other things you will need to know in order to be independent. It is hard enough to transition from married life to widowhood without having to learn basic life skills at the same time. Been There, Knew How To Do That in Kentucky Dear Kentucky: Thank you for the knock on the head. Along with financial matters and pumping gas, both men and women should know how to cook a simple meal, sew on a button, iron a shirt, load the dishwasher and do the laundry. These are skills that everyone needs, and it is shortsighted to assume that someone else will handle them for you for the rest of your life. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Uncomfortable, whose new mother-in-law wants her to call her Mom. I had a similar problem when my son married his wife. I love her dearly. One day, I wrote her an email and signed it, Love, Your Other Mom. She responded to me in that same way. Now, after several years, she is able to call me Mom. When my own mother passed away, I found it difficult to think of another person as my mom. Now, I have friends whose mothers are still living, and I often refer to a few of them as my other mother. One of these special moms phones me every now and then and refers to me as her other daughter. I cant tell you how much this means to me. I hope this helps Uncomfortable refer to her mother-in-law in a less awkward way. Been ThereAnnies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
