MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerTo say Tom Davis is synonymous with the Crystal River Airport is an understatement. For 35 years 30 as the fixed base operator Davis has made his presence known as the say-it-like-you-mean-it aviation force in Citrus County. Davis company, Crystal Aero Group Inc., pays the county $38,400 a year base, plus 5percent of his gross if it tops $800,000 annually. He was able to do that from 2006, the first year of the new agreement, through 2012. Last year, he hit $799,193 in gross sales. The biggest revenue-builder comes from pilot classes, especially foreign students. He and his wife, Gudi, average 15 students at any given time from 50 countries. Davis, 86, is a 33-year Navy veteran. The walls of his office are filled with photos from his Navy days and many photos tell stories of escaping death while flying during the Korean War. His command post now is in Crystal River, where he plans to stay as long as possible. The Citrus County Commission a group that in years past Davis toiled with over airport improvements recently recognized his efforts by naming the airport Tom Davis Field. Davis spent a few minutes recently discussing is favorite subject.CHRONICLE: So theyre naming the airport after you. How do you feel about that? DAVIS: I have mixed feelings about it. I didnt really expect anything to be named for me, except maybe my headstone, so this really is an honor. The downside of it is Im not through yet and theres still time for me to make them regret the decision (laughs). At my age, the risk is slight. CHRONICLE: The funny thing about this is youve had quite a history of battling county commissioners and here they are recognizing you. DAVIS: Its been an evolution of the board. I dont know if I look at it as battling them. It was fighting for the airport improvements, because I knew what it could do and what the citizens deserved for an airport.

QUESTION OF THE WEEK Nancy Daniel I got hit in Citrus County and now have a severe traumatic brain injury. I was on life support and in a coma for two months in Tampa General and was declared brain dead. Everyone gave up on me but me. I lost everyone and everything too ... and you can hear everything being said around you when youre in a coma, and yes you can recover... Kelly L Graham If it were me on life support and brain dead pull the plug. But having it be your child I can understand the heart ache the family is going through, the what ifs, but if she was declared brain dead by multiple doctors, the loving thing would be to let her go and be in peace. Im very sorry for their situation. Maureen Barton Bissonette I do not want to be kept alive with feeding and breathing tubes. I cant imagine anyone wanting to. If you are proven brain dead, you cannot recover. Even back then with Terri Shiavo, she went into the coma and became brain dead because of her compulsion with being skinny and beautiful. Would she want to be kept alive the way she looked at the end? Falcon Rogers I believe its a parents right to hold into hope. They bring the child into the world; they should be the ones to choose to hold on to hope or not. Science and medicine are not 100 percent, and they certainly arent God! I have heard many stories ... which prove there is a reason for hope, and miracles do happen... Peggy DeFrancisco When someone is brain dead, let them die with some dignity. There could never be any type of quality of life let God take them home. Contribute! Like us at facebook.com/ citruscounty chronicle and respond to our Question of the Week. MondayCONVERSATION Thorpe to pitch buying center CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS Commissioners will be asked Tuesday if the county should consider buying the building it leases in Meadowcrest to house the West Citrus Government Center. According to the agenda for the regular meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), County Administrator Brad Thorpe will present the status of the Meadowcrest facility. Its current lease contains an option to purchase the building for $4,050,000 before May31, 2014. Thorpe will request board direction as to its wishes to research whether the purchase is advisable. That information would be presented at a future board meeting. The research, called due diligence, would involve county staff in reviewing property See CENTER/ Page A2 Last option to buy Meadowcrest building Tom Davis Field Veteran aviator shows hes firmly in charge at Crystal River airport MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleTom Davis is an aviator to the core.

See MONDAY/ Page A8 MLK events on tap for next weekend NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Its been nearly 51 years since the late Martin Luther King Jr., spoke of his dream for a colorblind society and it still hasnt been realized. But that doesnt mean we stop trying, said Charles McRay II, organizer of this years Martin Luther King Jr. commemorative parade and picnic Monday, Jan.20, in Crystal River. This is our ninth year, and the dream is to bring all the communities together as one to celebrate Dr. Kings dream together, he said. As a lifelong Crystal River resident, unlike his parents who went to a segregated school, he grew up side by side with people of different color. Even so, desegregation in the late 1960s didnt end racism. Racism isnt an inherent trait. Its not in our genes; its a learned behavior, he said. We want to end all racism in Citrus County and nationwide. The MLK events in Crystal River begin at 5p.m. Sunday, Jan.19, with a church service at Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church, 2105 N. Georgia Road, Crystal River, and continue at 10 a.m. Monday with the annual parade. The parade will begin at Seventh Avenue between Third and Fourth streets, proceeding onto Gulf-to-Lake Highway (State Road 44) to 12th Avenue and to Third Street, ending at Copeland Park. This year we have about 20 entries, including the Crystal River Middle School band, McCray said. Beginning at 11 a.m., a commemoration service with keynote speaker Bishop Brown will kick off the annual Living the Dream Festival at Copeland Park. Food from local vendors Rudys Barbecue and Oysters will be available for purchase, along with drinks from the George Washington Carver Committee. Also, there will be lots of activities for kids, along with opportunities for visiting with neighbors and friends. For information, email Charles McCray II at charlesmccrayii@ yahoo.com. Across the county in Inverness, the MLK Jr. Unity Walk begins at 8:30a.m. Monday at the Citrus County Sheriffs Office on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, ending at Liberty Park for a short ceremony that includes the recitation of Dr. Kings I Have a Dream speech. For those interested in participating in a Day of Service in honor of the civil rights icon, the Nature Coast Volunteer Center has several projects going on around the county such as a cleanup day from 9a.m. to noon, Monday, Jan.20, at Floral Park in Floral City. Or, creating valentines for veterans from 9 a.m. to noon at Central Ridge Community Center, 77 Civic Circle, Beverly Hills.

appraisals, existing leases and maintenance and insurance costs that would be the responsibility of the owner. In February 2011, the board voted 5-0 to seek a lease for 25,000 square feet of space within the Meadowcrest building to house satellite offices of the clerk of court, tax collector, property appraiser and supervisor of elections. For almost two decades, the countys constitutional officers had leased about 8,400 square feet of space in the Crystal Square Shopping Center on U.S.19 in Crystal River, for which the county paid about $110,000 annually. Gulf to Lakes Corp., the owner of the Meadowcrest building, was asked for a 10-year lease costing about $118,000 annually for 25,000 square feet. Renovating the office space cost the county about $1.52 million, according to a county staff report in September 2011. The Meadowcrest building is a complex that also houses a branch of the SunTrust Bank and an office for LKQ Corp., an auto parts recycler, among other businesses. The term of the lease commenced Aug.1, 2011, and will expire on July31, 2020. According to the lease, the rent would increase gradually each year. In the current year, Year 3, the lease calls for a monthly rent of $8,394 per 3.98 usable square feet. Additional rent is charged for a proportionate share of operating costs. According to Article XXI of the lease, the option to buy the building by May31, 2014, for $4.05 million is the last of three dates to take this opportunity. The lease stipulated a price of $3.75 million if the purchase was closed on by May31, 2012, and a price of $3.9 million by May31, 2013. If the county does not exercise any of the purchase options, according to Article XXI, it still has the right of first refusal during the first five years of the lease should another entity or person seek to buy the property. In other business: At 5:01 p.m., the board will conduct a public workshop for the County Road 491 Corridor Project. Thorpe will present information regarding the comprehensive plan discussion, the project alignment, the map presentation, the current capital improvement plan of cost estimates and funding, the project timeline and the economic benefits. At 2:15 p.m., Bob Clifford, executive director of the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority, will present information about the proposed Hernando County and Citrus County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) planning area boundary redesignation and reapportionment plan. The board will be asked to execute a resolution of support to provide for nine voting members on the merged MPO. At 2:10 p.m., the board will conduct a public hearing to amend the fee schedule of the Department of Planning and Development. If approved, the board will execute a resolution to correct inconsistencies. At 2 p.m., the board will conduct a public hearing to comply with its application to the Florida Department of Community Affairs for one or more Small Cities Community Development Block Grants of up to $750,000. A public hearing must be held for citizen participation requirements regarding community development needs. On the consent agenda, the board will be asked to approve and authorize an agreement with Public Resource Management Group to provide the Citrus County Utility Comprehensive Rate Study Financial Consultant Services on an as-needed basis over a five-year period. PRMG of Maitland was one of three bidders and its total estimated cost on the pricing form was $90,060. According to the agenda, Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney will introduce a discussion regarding a multi-year budget process. Kenney will ask the board to vote for three appointees to the Citrus County Tourism Development Council. He also will seek nominations to the Water and Wastewater Authority. According to the agenda, Commissioner Scott Adams will introduce discussions on three subjects: Corrections Corporation of America, public participation and the animal shelter. Acting County Attorney Kerry Parsons will open a discussion about and seek a possible approval of a conflict waiver request from Holland and Knight to allow the law firm to represent Citrus County Mining Association regarding the proposed County Road 491 Corridor Project.

Orlando police wear body cameras for USF study Associated PressTAMPA Researchers at the University of South Florida have teamed up with the Orlando Police Department for a long-term study on officers actions using footage from body cameras. Fifty officers will wear tiny cameras on places like their sunglasses, collars and caps to provide critical perspective about their daily interactions and decisions. Fifty other officers participating in the yearlong study will not wear the cameras. Police departments across the country are increasingly using body cameras, which cost between $200 to $400 each, to provide valuable first-hand accounts and investigate issues such as use of force. Researchers from USFs criminology department will examine the number of incidents and complaints involving force and whether injuries go up or down. Theyll also look at whether civilians treat officers wearing cameras differently and whether theyre less likely to approach them. The footage can also be used when a complaint is lodged against an officer. If you really want to make cameras a strong accountability mechanism, you want the supervisors to review random film and let the officers know, said Lorie Fridell, associate professor and graduate director in criminology at USF. That makes the film more powerful in terms of promotion and good behavior. The Institute of Criminology at the University of Cambridge led a body camera study in 2012 with Californias Rialto Police Department, using a smaller sample size of officers than the USF study. Complaints against Rialto police officers dropped by 88 percent. And officers wearing cameras used force almost 60 percent less. WHAT: Citrus County Boar d of County Commissioners meeting.

Before Moon Over Mounds, launch ancient ammo Special to the ChronicleRecently at a Citrus County Commission meeting, a motion was made and before the chairman announced that the motion was lost, due to lack of a second, debate started. Then someone said that the debate was invalid due to lack of a second. Had the commission had a parliamentarian or any of the commissioners known Roberts Rules of Order, the debate would have been allowed to continue or an amending motion would have been made. Situations such as this will be presented at the Citrus County Parliamentarians Feb. 7 workshop. Also, insight will be provided into many other issues of the parliamentary process. Since most meetings use Roberts Rules as their guide to meeting decorum, it is helpful for leaders to become familiar with these rules. Also, members of the meeting assembly can benefit by being aware of the rules. At the Feb. 7 workshop attendees will be trained in Running a Successful Meeting, learning the mechanics of running a meeting, how to be a knowledgeable attendee, your part in the meeting, and how to follow an agenda so the meeting will conclude successfully and on time. The workshop date is from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the Whispering Pines Park Recreation Building in Inverness. Registration fee is $10 and is due by Jan. 30.

The tradition started with the building of the church sanctuary, which was completed in 2003, according to Headmaster Dana James. Well-wishers support Seven Rivers Christian School Chronicleembers and friends of Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church and Seven Rivers Christian School in Lecanto celebrated the construction of a new preschool building this past weekend with a wall-signing party. People signed their names, wrote favorite scriptures or prayers on the bare cement block walls before and after Saturday night and Sunday morning church services. For much of the 25-year history of the school, preschool classes have been held in portable buildings. In addition to more than doubling their capacity with eight classrooms, the project includes building a preschool playground with ageappropriate equipment. The project is funded by donations from church members and friends. This weekend was supposed to be the groundbreaking, said the Rev. Ray Cortese, addressing the congregation Saturday. But because you have gone above and beyond, we were able to start sooner than planned. God is good. The preschool is hoped to be complete by May 1, so the new facility may be showcased to families before the end of the school year according to Headmaster Dana James. Eight-year-old Zach Saint signs the wall at the new Seven Rivers Christian preschool building, which started construction in October 2012. Zach is a second-grader at Seven Rivers and was one of the first to show up for what has turned into a tradition for Seven Rivers. Seven Rivers Curriculum Director Sheila James signs the wall of the new preschool building, which is still under construction.

Deaths ELSEWHERE Sam Berns, 17PROGERIA VICTIMFOXBOROUGH, Mass. A teenager whose battle with a rare genetic condition that accelerates the aging process became the subject of an HBO documentary has died. Sam Berns was 17. Berns, of Foxborough, died Friday after complications from HutchinsonGilford progeria syn drome, commonly known as progeria. The Progeria Research Foundation, which was founded by his parents, announced his death. Berns was diagnosed with progeria when he was 22 months old. His parents founded the nonprofit foundation after encountering a lack of information and research on the condition, whose victims live an average of 13 years. The work by his parents, Leslie Gordon and Scott Berns, who are doctors, on behalf of progeria patients is featured in the documentary Life According to Sam. The exposure has brought greater recognition to the condition, which causes musculoskeletal degeneration, cardiovascular problems and other symptoms associated with aging.Larry Speakes, 74FORMER REAGAN SPOKESMAN JACKSON, Miss. Larry Speakes, who spent six years as acting press secretary for President Ronald Reagan, died Friday in his native Mississippi. He was 74. Speakes died at home in Cleveland, Miss., where he had lived the past several years, said Bolivar County Coroner Nate Brown. Brown said Speakes had Alzheimers disease. Speakes was buried in North Cleveland Cemetery during a private service Friday morning, a few hours after dying, said Kenny Williams of Cleveland Funeral Home. Speakes became Reagans acting spokesman after Press Secretary James Brady was wounded during an assassination attempt on Reagan in 1981. In a statement issued from Los Angeles, former first lady Nancy Reagan said she was saddened to learn about Larry, who served Ronnie with great loyalty in one of the toughest jobs in the White House. He stepped up in very difficult circumstances and was an articulate and respected spokesman day in and day out, including some very historically significant moments, Reagan said. It is a source of special sadness to know he suffered from Alzheimers disease. Ronald Reagan died in 2004 after a 10-year battle with Alzheimers disease.A6MONDAY, JANUARY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Eyecare Express SAME DAY SERVICE Even Bifocals & Safety Glasses *CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS APPLY.

taxpayer money going into these airports with no return. The return is what we provide for the citizens in recreation, in business ... and public safety. During the big storm (March 1993), we were an important way station for people coming out of the wetlands there. My fight, if there was a fight, was to improve it, so we did, in fact, support the community. CHRONICLE: When you got here 30 years ago, what kind of condition was the airport in? What did the public think of it? DAVIS: Not very much. If you read the reports in the Chronicleand at the board of commissioners people appearing before the board a continued rant about the airport being used, boys and their toys. Why dont they pay for it? I dont want to take credit for where this is today. Thirty-five years have gone by and things were pretty primitive in Crystal River. All the things weve gradually seen over the years, well, theyve happened at the airport also. When I got here, there were two dirt runways. And there was this building that was a shell. The biggest plus that really happened was one of the prior lease-holders out here had this building (hangar) built with no financial support, nothing to help pay for it, and he lost it to the county. The county picked it up for $17,000, Im told. If it hadnt been for this kernel of growth by this big building, we wouldnt have gotten anywhere. This has been the problem at Inverness (Airport). That had no base to build from. They have these hangars, but no FBO (fixed base operator) facility. CHRONICLE: How did you go about convincing the county commissioners to start paying more attention out here? DAVIS: Ive been persistent. Heres the deal: When I came out of the Navy, I was very nave. I didnt understand civilians. I didnt much like them, frankly, except for my mom. She was OK, but the rest of them were suspect. I didnt understand how they worked, evidently. When I came here, it was the year they proposed Bicentennial Park. It went through the Aviation Advisory Board first. The Aviation Advisory Board said, yes thats a good thing; however, we would like to extend our runway to the east. We would like that as a tradeoff. You take this acreage that was supposed to be earmarked for airport development, give it to the park, but then give it to us on the east end so we can have the growth out to the east for a 5,000-foot runway. That was the deal. It came before the board and they accepted the park, but they flat ignored any compensation for the airport. CHRONICLE: But you got the runway. DAVIS: When I came here, that was a dirt runway. We had a 3,300-foot pavement then. Then we had that first extension, which was a real battle. CHRONICLE: The one that goes toward the 7 Rivers Golf and Country Club? DAVIS: That was the one done overnight, with county commissioners on their way out. If that hadnt happened, wed still be fighting it, I guess. CHRONICLE: Has the political mood changed? DAVIS: Oh yeah. Its a delight. (Former Commissioner) Jim Fowler was the first guy who could say aviation in public because no one wanted to talk about airports or be aligned with airports. Jim Fowler mentioned it, joined by (former Commissioner) Josh Wooten ... and that was the turnaround. Since then, my buddy (Commissioner) Scott Adams is for the airports. CHRONICLE: Youve been doing this a long time. Why do you like it so much? DAVIS: Im not really proud of this, but I have zero interest in just about anything else there is, except Gudi and friends. Im seven minutes from the airport, Im 30 steps from my boat when I want to go out just cruising. I dont fish, I dont hunt, I dont play golf, I dont play tennis, I dont play bridge. I do read. I dont exercise. I am getting old. But when I get in an airplane, Im completely comfortable. Acrobatics and instrument flying, its just a different world. A different world.

Page A12MONDAY, JANUARY 13, 2014 Stick to the issuesA recent letter from three women suggested that compromise was the solution to our problems and differences. They listed 15 issues they were for or against, and boldly appointed themselves authority to speak for Republicans regarding those same issues. However, those three peace-seekers did not offer a single compromise for consideration. None. Nada. Eventually, one could conclude that those demanding compromise are really saying do it my way or you are an idiot! After all, are we expected to believe they vote for the person who promises to compromise on all difficult issues? I would like those women (and others) to follow up with a list of their proposed compromises on those 15 issues. Is that asking too much? And while we are waiting, I would like to offer a compromise of my own. We have all learned that when Republicans disagree with Democrats on solutions to any major issues, rather than to discuss the issue openly and honestly, Democrats resort to ad hominem politics. It seems their end justifies their means, regardless of the long-lasting damage. Play back the last year alone, including the lead-up to the 2012 elections. How often did we hear the following words (or implications): racists, bigots, homophobes, haters, etc.? How many times did we hear about the war on women, even when Republicans said Sandra Fluke should pay for her own birth control or abortion? When the issues were about accountability, out-ofcontrol debt, spending, amnesty or whatever, the accusations and name-calling quickly followed. Republicans hate this group or that group and blah, blah, blah. My suggestion on compromise is for Democrats to stop the name-calling, and in turn, Republicans stop defending themselves against the phony accusations. Just stick with the issues. Seems that would help far more than demanding some perfunctory and fictional compromise while holding a gun to someones head. OK, Ill optimistically wait for those 15 suggestions for compromise, but pessimistically expect nothing but more name-calling.Sam Nall HomosassaShocking discoveryI have observed that a lot of people are having trouble with squirrels eating their bird food. I think I have the solution. My wife had an aluminum clothesline strung between two pine trees. I hung a metal feeder on the clothesline and the squirrels soon learned how to walk the wire to the feeder. So I took a piece of two-strand wire, fastened one end to the wire and the other end to the metal feeder. I then applied 120 VAC. Any time a squirrel walked the wire and touched the wire, it got a shock. This method is cheap, it does not hurt the squirrels and they get a lesson. They must talk to each other because no others tried it. It works.William H. Parker Crystal River French President Francois Hollande has been confronted by the glaring light of reality sort of. On New Years Day, as his massive tax increases began taking effect, Hollande, a member of the Socialist Party, admitted that taxes in France have become too heavy, much too heavy. Indeed, as of Jan. 1, French households now must contend with a new value added tax on many goods and services and, writes International Business Times, French companies will be required to pay 50 percent tax on all employee salaries in excess of 1 million euros. ... The effective tax rate will amount to 75 percent. Unemployment, which Hollande promised to reduce, has risen to nearly 11 percent. Some companies and wealthy people have left France in search of business-friendly environments. More will surely follow unless Hollandes rhetoric is followed by actual tax reductions. Hollandes head-on collision with reality is reminiscent of President Bill Clintons remarks in 1995 at a campaign fundraiser in Houston: Probably there are people in this room still mad at me ... because you think I raised your taxes too much. It might surprise you to know that I think I raised them too much, too. Neither Hollande (so far), nor Clinton, followed up on their remarks by cutting taxes. Like many other politicians, these men tried to have it both ways. The next political leader who will be forced to adjust his leftwing ideology to reality is the new mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, who has proposed a tax on the wealthy to fund universal pre-K education. He, too, thinks raising taxes on the successful is the way to prosperity for the poor. He should pick up the phone and ask Hollande how that is working for him, as Hollandes approval ratings are sinking faster than President Obamas. Even better, he might recall Calvin Coolidges remark: Dont expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong. Penalize success and prosperity and you get less of it. Subsidize bad decision-making by giving taxpayer money to the poor, and you may well undermine initiative and personal responsibility and create new generations of poor people. The left in America and France have gained political power by appealing to voters emotions, but when they achieve power their ideology harms the very people who voted for them when these wellintentioned programs prove unworkable. This presents conservatives and Republicans with an opportunity, as well as risks. Liberals are allowed to be as ideological as they wish, and the major media and too many among the unfocused public will mostly support them. The left is never told they must compromise their ideology when reality proves them wrong, or work with Republicans and conservatives to achieve common goals. That is the trap liberals set for conservatives, who are repeatedly told they must compromise their principles if they hope to win elections, but whose squishy politics then become as unappealing as cold oatmeal. Here is the path Republicans and conservatives must take if they not only want to win, but bring positive change to the country. Instead of debating feelings and ideology with the left (territory on which they almost always lose recall compassionate conservative), conservatives should hold their opponents accountable. Are their policies producing the results they claim? Is the record debt good for the country? Are agencies performing as their charter demands, and should their budgets be reduced or the agency eliminated if it cant show results? Every government agency and program should be regularly required to justify not only its budget, but its very existence. Americans typically hate waste. It is why as children most of us were told to clean our plates because somewhere in the world there were hungry people. Requiring the left to prove their programs and policies are producing outcomes at reasonable cost would shift the debate from ideology and good intentions to reality. This is where conservatives have a distinct advantage if they will embrace it.Readers may email Cal Thomas at tcaeditors @tribune.com.

Thats when the county commission will have a public workshop seeking input on the proposed County Road 491 corridor plan and road widening project. Loosely referred to as the medical corridor, the undertaking is intended to incorporate properties of all willing owners along the stretch of C.R. 491 between State Road 44 and County Road 486 under one overlay plan. The vision behind the plan is to orchestrate land utilization in a way that maximizes its potential and encourages investment in professional facilities, including medical. As the proposed plan has been developed, several critics have voiced concern about the logic and necessity. The public workshop is an opportunity to come away armed with a more comprehensive knowledge to justify opinions whether in support or opposition. Under the countys comprehensive plan, the Central Ridge region was identified as desirable for development. To that end, the corridor has merits. At the same time, county officials need to know concerns of the public. What are the environmental ramifications? What are the economic ramifications? Is there sufficient buy-in from landowners along the corridor to justify the expense? What is the cost and how will it be funded? What would this mean for the broader region? The workshop is the prime opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the project, digest it, and voice perspectives and observations. An initiative such as the County Road 491 corridor plan should not be summarily dismissed as a result of a kneejerk reaction by a vocal minority not fully aware of its potential merits. Those with strong opinions and all interested parties should be in Room 110 of the Citrus County Courthouse in Inverness at 5:01 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14. If unable to attend, comments may be mailed in advance to Planning and Development Director Jenette Collins at 3600 W. Sovereign Path, Suite 109, Lecanto, FL, 34461, or emailed to Jenette.collins@ bocc.citrus.fl.us. This is an opportunity to weigh in.

Its easy. They wanted The Meadows of Citrus County Board of Directors to give them an answer. What will happen to the Muscovy ducks at The Meadows? Many attempts have been made by various media, residents and even the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida to get an official statement about this, but none has been made. This controversy started this past August. Residents have purchased Do Not Feed The Ducks signs and have asked for the assistance, along with the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida, from the county commissioners to pass an ordinance for a feeding ban.

I have saved this information for at least three years, a guide to making a difference, referring to the book by Paul Loeb, Soul of a Citizen, Living with Conviction in Challenging Times. The book examines the psychology of social involvement, showing how ordinary citizens can do extraordinary things by making their voices heard and their actions count. Loeb states that in the personal realm, most Americans are thoughtful and caring, but too often a wall separates each of us from the world outside, the gated community of the heart. Further, he says Public participation is the very soul of democratic citizenship, profoundly enriching our lives! His common-sense advice: Do not be impulsive about becoming involved: identify worthy groups, then get involved. If we are to heal our society and heal our souls, (which in the view of Mr. Loeb, go hand in hand), we need to understand the cultural diseases of callousness, short-sightedness and denial of difficult challenges. Wow! He then mentions a pervasive sense of powerlessness that afflicts our society, and citizen involvement is the antidote to paralysis and powerlessness. This book is recommended reading in many colleges and universities, as it inspires people to act to take a stand. Loeb states, When we take a stand we grow psychologically and spiritually. Caring is in evidence here all year long, but the needs are so very many. This book is now on my must read list, and I am hopeful Mr. Loebs powerful words will provide the impetus to everyone in this beautiful county to ponder what they might do to live with conviction in challenging times!Marilyn M. Booth InvernessThankful for great care Two days before Christmas was my worst memory. I had a heart attack. But it was also my best memory, because Citrus Memorial hospital was there for me. From the 911 operator, through the two EMS gentlemen, the crisis ER personnel, the surgeon who installed the stent ... they allowed me to live. All of those involved in helping me, their individual upbeat attitudes, and skills, saved my life. Im unable to speak too highly of them and their concern for this patient. Despite the tax-dollar-gobbling, egodriven, elementary-school-level factions that try to run the facility, the hospital personnel manage to do their jobs well for the citizens of Citrus County. We should be thankful for that. I am a grateful and perfect example of their efforts.Patrick Bange LecantoHoping for litter-free countyLets all pull together to make our county, the showplace of the state. We can do it.

Associated Press DRY BRANCH, W.Va. For Bonnie Wireman, the white plastic bag covering her kitchen faucet is a reminder that she cant drink the water. The 81-year-old woman placed it there after forgetting several times the tap water was tainted after a coal processing chemical leaked into the areas water supply. Every time she turned on the water, she quickly stopped and cleaned her hands with peroxide just to make sure she was safe. The widow of a coal miner, Wireman was angered about the chemical spill thats deprived 300,000 West Virginians of clean tap water for four days, but doesnt blame the coal or chemical industries. I hope this doesnt hurt coal, said Wireman, who lives in an area known as Chemical Valley because of all the plants nearby. Too many West Virginians depend on coal and chemicals. We need those jobs. And thats the dilemma for many West Virginians: The industries provide thousands of good paying jobs but also pose risks for the communities surrounding them, such as the chemical spill or coal mine disasters. The current emergency began Thursday after a foaming agent used in coal processing escaped from a Freedom Industries plant in Charleston and seeped into the Elk River. Since then, residents have been ordered not to use tap water for anything but flushing toilets. Gov. Earl Tomblin said Sunday water tests were encouraging, but he didnt give a timetable for when people might be able to use water again. The numbers look good. They are very encouraging, Tomblin said. Schools, restaurants and other businesses were to close Monday, but the governor said all state offices would be open. Maj. Gen. James Hoyer, of the West Virginia National Guard, said testing near the water treatment facility has consistently been below one part per million for 24 hours, a key step officials needed before they can lift the ban. Some tests have shown the chemical was not present at all in water coming in and out of the plant. West Virginia American Water President Jeff McIntyre said they will lift the water bans by zone, but he didnt say how soon it would be. West Virginia is a picturesque, mountainous state, with deep rivers and streams that cut through lush valleys. But along the twisting, rural roads there are signs of the states industrial past and present: Chemical plant storage tanks rise from the valley floor. Coal mines with heavy equipment and steel structures used to extract and then transport the fuel are part of the rural landscape. White plumes of smoke drifting from factories offer a stark contrast to the states natural beauty. No pants Tyson recalls chicken productLITTLE ROCK, Ark. Tyson Foods is recalling nearly 34,000 pounds of mechanically separated chicken products that may be contaminated with a strain of salmonella. The U.S. Department of Agriculture said Friday in a news release the product was not sold in retail stores. It was produced on Oct.11 and shipped nationwide for institutional use. The chicken has been linked to illnesses in a Tennessee correctional facility, where seven people got sick and two were hospitalized. Food containing Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts four to seven days. Most people recover without treatment. New GM CEO hopes to inspireDETROIT The incoming CEO of General Motors hopes her appointment as the first woman to lead a global automaker will inspire young women and men to pursue careers in science. Mary Barras first appearance before reporters since getting the job in December eclipsed the glitzy rollout of the GMC Canyon small pickup truck Sunday at an old industrial building north of Downtown Detroit. Barra, who officially takes the job on Wednesday, led the truck-unveiling ceremony and then was immediately surrounded by several hundred journalists. Responding to a question about being an inspiration to women, Barra said she hopes her engineering credentials make her a role model for young people. With my technical background Im an electrical engineer and I can motivate young women or young men to pursue a career in science, she said. Barra, 52, was appointed by the board on Dec. 10 to replace the outgoing Dan Akerson.

Flames prevented paramedics from reaching the man who collapsed on the roof of his home in suburban Hovea on Perths eastern fringe. The ambulance service said he died at the scene while attempting to protect his house. It was not immediately known if the house was destroyed. The state fire service said in a statement on Monday that 27 homes had been confirmed destroyed, adding that this number is expected to increase as damage assessments continue.Bombing blunder in NigeriaMAIDUGURI, Nigeria A Nigerian military fighter jet bombed the cavalcade of a prominent federal senator as he drove to the scene of an attack by suspected Islamic extremists in the countrys northeast, the senator said Sunday. No one was hurt. Sen. Mohammed Ali Ndume said Saturdays bombing underscored the seriousness of how the military endangers innocent civilians. Thousands of security forces have been deployed to northeast Nigeria under a state of emergency covering one-sixth of Africas biggest old producer to crack down on a 4-year-old Islamic uprising. Ndume said soldiers told him the bombing of his sixvehicle convoy led by an army vehicle with a police van in the rear was an operational blunder. Military spokesman Col. Muhammed Dole said he knew nothing of the senators convoy being bombed, but said a military operation with air support was going on around Ardoko village.

Iran reaches deal Associated PressTEHRAN, Iran Iran has agreed to limit uranium enrichment and to open its nuclear program to daily inspection by international experts starting Jan.20, setting the clock running on a sixmonth deadline for a final nuclear agreement, officials said Sunday. In exchange, the Islamic Republic will get a relaxation of the financial sanctions that have been crippling its economy. The announcement that Iran and six world powers had agreed on the plan for implementing an interim agreement came first from Iranian officials and was later confirmed elsewhere. Some U.S. lawmakers have been leery of the agreement, calling for tougher sanctions against Iran, rather than any loosening of controls. Irans official IRNA news agency quoted Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi as saying the deal, which sets the terms of a landmark agreement reached in November, would take effect from Jan.20. The agency said Iran will grant the United Nations watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency access to its nuclear facilities and its centrifuge production lines to confirm it is complying with terms of the deal. Araghchi later told state television some $4.2billion in seized oil revenue would be released under the deal. Senior officials in U.S. President Barack Obamas administration put the total relief figure at $7 billion. In a statement, President Barack Obama welcomed the deal, saying it will advance our goal of preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. I have no illusions about how hard it will be to achieve this objective, but for the sake of our national security and the peace and security of the world, now is the time to give diplomacy a chance to succeed, Obama said. Under the November agreement, Iran agreed to limit its uranium enrichment to 5 percent the grade commonly used to power reactors. The deal also commits Iran to stop producing 20 percent enriched uranium which is only a technical step away from weapons-grade material and to neutralize its 20 percent stockpile over the six months. In exchange, economic sanctions Iran faces would be eased for six months. During that time, the socalled P5+1 world powers Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States would continue negotiations with Iran on a permanent deal. I hope this doesnt hurt coal Associated PressBonnie Wireman of Dry Branch, W.Va., has covered her kitchen faucets in a bag because she kept forgetting about the ban on using tap water for drinking and washing. Wireman is one of thousands of area residents affected by the water ban following the Jan. 9 chemical spill. West Virginia water tests encouraging after chemical spill Top envoys insist Syria peace talks must proceed Associated PressPARIS Syrias Westernbacked opposition came under steely pressure Sunday to attend peace talks in just over a week as envoys from 11 countries converged to help restore, and test, credibility of a rebel coalition sapped by vicious infighting and indecision. But diplomacys limits were starkly apparent in Syria itself, where activists said rebel-on-rebel clashes have killed nearly 700 people in the deadliest bout of infighting since the civil war began. The bloodshed, pitting alQaida-linked militants against several Islamist and more moderate rebel brigades, has begun to overshadow the broader war against the government. Sundays meetings in Paris came just over a week before the scheduled talks in Switzerland, as the Syrian National Coalition nears collapse, its influence eroded by the chronic infighting, international pressure and disagreement over whether to negotiate with Syrias president, Bashar Assad. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry joined 10 other foreign ministers who urged coalition President Ahmed al-Jarba to deliver his group to the Switzerland talks and finally meet face-to-face with the government it hopes to overthrow. Kerry said he was confident the coalition would be at the talks, and hinted at a diplomatic backlash from its allies if it skips the meetings. I think they understand the stakes, Kerry told reporters Sunday. But Im not going to get into consequences other than to say its a test of the credibility of everybody, and its why I am confident that they will be there. Because I think they understand that. Al-Jarba, who will meet again with Kerry on Monday, tried to put the best face on his coalitions precarious position. The Syrian National Council will vote Friday on whether to attend the peace talks but already has agreed to uphold a cease-fire once negotiations begin. We have made clear the reality of the situation on the ground, alJarba said. We have addressed issues, preoccupations and worries that we know exist.

The Broncos (14-3) took a 17-0 lead into the fourth quarter. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers then capitalized on an injury to cornerback Chris Harris Jr. to stage a comeback reminiscent of Baltimores shocking win at Denver exactly a year earlier. This time, however, Manning rescued the Broncos from the brink of another crushing collapse and sent them into the title game for the first time in eight seasons. Theyll host the New England Patriots (13-4) on Sunday. Get ready for Brady vs. Manning once more. In the most recent matchup of QBs with Hall of Fame credentials, Tom Brady and the Patriots rallied past Manning and the visiting Broncos 34-31 in overtime on Nov. 24. Its the Broncos versus the Patriots and certainly Tom and I have played against each other a lot, Manning said after beating San Diego. But when you get to the AFC championship, its about two good teams that have been through a lot to get there. Manning ended a personal three-game postseason skid in winning for the first time since leading Indianapolis over the Jets 30-17 in the AFC championship game on Jan. 24, 2010. Manning completed 25 of 36 passes for 230 yards and two TDs, numbers that werent quite up to the standards he set during a record-breaking regular season when he established new benchmarks with 55 TD throws and 5,447 yards through the air. But it was windy and the Broncos were intent on establishing the run and controlling the clock. San Diego had Manning and his high-octane offense cooling their cleats on the sideline for more than 38 minutes in both of their meetings during the regular season, when both teams won on the road. Denver had the ball for 35 minutes, 27 seconds in this game, to San Diegos 24:33. Walker runs away with Sony title Late surge leads to victory at Waialae Associated PressHONOLULU Jimmy Walker went seven years and 187 tournaments before he finally won on the PGA Tour. Now he seems to have it figured out. Walker pulled away from the pack with three straight birdies on the back nine of Waialae on Sunday and closed with a 7-under 63 to win the Sony Open for his second tour victory in his last six starts. It took me a long time to do it, Walker said. I felt very calm and controlled. Thats what youve got to feel and do when its time to win. Its easy to say, hard to do. But today was awesome. Really cool golf. This wasnt easy. The final round was so tight there was a five-way tie for the lead with two hours remaining. Walkers big run began with a 12-foot par on the 14th hole. One shot behind Harris English, Walker rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt on the 15th hole, and took the outright lead when English behind him in the final group failed to save par from a bunker. Walker made a 7-foot birdie putt on the 16th, and stuck his tee shot into 6 feet for birdie on the par-3 17th. A par on the last hole made him wait just a little bit longer. Chris Kirk had a 30-foot eagle chip from just short of the green on the par5 18th that would have forced a playoff. It stayed right of the hole, and Kirk made the birdie putt for a 66 to finish alone in second place. Jerry Kelly (65) was alone in third. English never recovered from his bogey. He missed birdie putts on the last three holes for a 67. Walker won the Frys.com Open in October, the first tournament of the new wraparound season. As the first multiple winner on the PGA Tour this season, he went to No. 1 in the Ryder Cup standings and is closing in on cracking the top 30 in the world. Walker finished at 17-under 263 and earned $1.08 million. He already qualified for his first Masters by winning in October. Now hes piling up the wins. With so many players in contention, the key was to keep bogeys off the card. Walker had made at least two bogeys in each of the three previous rounds, and it looked as if he was headed for one at the wrong time on the 14th hole when he chipped from an awkward stance near the bunker to about 12 feet. Kelly missed a 15-foot par putt from the same line, and Walker poured it in. And then, he was off to the races.Oosthuizen wins Volvo titleDURBAN, South Africa South African Louis Oosthuizen birdied his closing two holes to retain the Volvo Champions title. The former British Open winner shot a 4-under 68 Sunday for an overall score of 12 under. He finished a stroke ahead of fellow South African Branden Grace, who also shot a 68 on the Durban Country Club course. It is Oosthuizens first victory since winning this elite 36-player event a year ago. Associated PressSan Francisco wide receiver Anquan Boldin celebrates a catch Sunday against the Carolina Panthers during the second half of a divisional playoff game in Charlotte, N.C. The 49ers advanced to meet Seattle in the NFC Championship game with a 23-10 victory. Kaepernick lifts 49ers over Panthers; face Seattle for NFC title Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Colin Kaepernick raced into the end zone, then pretended to rip open his shirt with both hands imitating Cam Newtons Superman touchdown celebration. Three years of frustration had come to a head. Just a little shoutout, Kaepernick said. To whom? I think you know the answer, Kaepernick said with a grin. Kaepernick said he will never forget that he was selected in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft, 35 spots behind Newton, the Heisman Trophy winner and the top pick that season. On Sunday, he outplayed his quarterback counterpart, throwing one touchdown pass and running for another score as the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Carolina Panthers 23-10 to advance to the NFC title game for the third straight season. Kaepernick completed 15 of 28 passes for 196 yards in the divisional playoff win, avenging his worst statistical performance of the season two months ago against the Panthers. Thats not the first, nor will it be the last time somebody does that, Newton said of Kaepernicks copycat display before leaving the postgame podium. Anquan Boldin had eight catches for 136 yards and Frank Gore ran for 84 yards on 17 carries for the 49ers (14-4), who will visit Seattle next Sunday looking for a return trip to the Super Bowl. I think were the two teams that everybody was looking at from the beginning, Kaepernick said. Its going to be a knockdown, drag-out game. The 49ers will have their hands full. San Francisco (14-4) split two games with the Seahawks this season, but lost 29-3 at CenturyLink Field in September.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE After gaining just 18 yards on the ground against San Diego last month, the Broncos ran for 133 yards, including 82 by Knowshon Moreno, whose 3-yard TD run put them ahead 24-7 with 8:12 left. After that, things got interesting. Quentin Jammer, who gave up San Diegos first TD, a 16-yarder to Keenen Allen early in the fourth quarter, surrendered a 49-yard catch by Allen on fourth-and-5 from the San Diego 25 with seven minutes left. That led to Allens second TD, also from 16 yards out, that pulled the Chargers to 24-14 with 5:43 left. Eric Decker then made his third big blunder of the day, flubbing the onside kick, which San Diego recovered. Nick Novaks 30-yard field goal with 3:53 pulled the Chargers (10-8) to within a touchdown. Novak followed with a pooch kick, and Trindon Holliday secured the ball at the Denver 27 with 3:51 left. Manning converted two third-down throws to tight end Julius Thomas, the first one a nifty 21-yarder on third-and-17 from his 20 and then a third-and-6 from his 45-yard line. Then, on third-and-1, Moreno burst up the middle for 5 yards with a minute left and the offensive linemen highfived each other. Allen finished with six catches for 142 yards as the Chargers lost for the first time in six weeks. The Broncos took a 14-0 halftime lead that could have easily been 21-0 if not for blunders by Decker, who tripped with no defender near him at the San Diego 30-yard line after a 47-yard punt return. Then, on third-and-goal from the 4, Manning hit him with a perfect pass as he cut across the back of the end zone, but it bounced off his chest and into the arms of linebacker Donald Butler with 30 seconds left. Manning threw up his arms in disbelief after his first red zone interception of the season following 39 red-zone TDs. This was the 109th meeting between the original AFL rivals but the first in the postseason. Michael Crabtree in that lopsided loss. Crabtree only had three catches for 26 yards against Carolina, but Boldin said he drew plenty of double teams that allowed him to get open. Thats the great thing about our team we have weapons all around, Boldin said. You try to take one guy out and you still have two or three guys left who can make big plays. The 49ers held Newton in check, intercepting him twice and sacking him five times while stopping the Panthers (12-5) twice on the 1-yard line in the first half. Newton finished with 267 yards passing and had 54 yards on 10 carries, but the Panthers only found the end zone once on a 31-yard TD strike to Steve Smith. It was a rough playoff debut for Newton. Linebacker Ahmad Brooks stopped Newton on a fourth-down sneak early in the second. Later, Brooks vaulted over the line and past Newton he was called for offsides, but the 49ers showed the Panthers it wouldnt be easy. Terrible ending to a great season, Newton said. Almost fittingly, he misfired into the end zone on the final play of the game. Kaepernick was held to 91 yards passing, 16 yards rushing and sacked six times in the first meeting with Carolina, a 10-9 loss at Candlestick Park. But he played efficient football Sunday. We had to get settled down, Kaepernick said. We came out, they did some unorthodox things against us. We settled down, we got into our rhythm, we started making plays. San Francisco led 13-10 at the half when Kaepernick scored midway through in the third quarter on a 4-yard touchdown run off a read option. The Panthers couldnt answer, failing to score in the second half. The 49ers took a 13-10 lead into the locker room after Vernon Davis caught a 1-yard touchdown pass in the back of the end zone from Kaepernick with 5 seconds left in the first half. Davis was initially ruled out of the end zone on a play where 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh raced on to the field, drawing a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. Harbaugh said he wasnt disputing the catch, but rather that the play clock continued to run after the play. All turned out fine for the 49ers though, as officials overturned the call ruling Davis dragged his left foot and scored. Television replays showed the 49ers had 12 men in the huddle with backup tight end Vance McDonald racing to the sidelines before the ball was snapped. Referee Carl Cheffers defended the call telling a pool reporter the ball hadnt been spotted although Fox television replays seem to indicate otherwise. Carolina spotted San Francisco a 6-0 lead with two defensive penalties an unnecessary roughness on safety Mike Mitchell and a headbutt on cornerback Captain Munnerlyn leading to field goals.

B4MONDAY, JANUARY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Rangers ride 3-goal first to rout of Flyers Associated PressNEW YORK Daniel Carcillo, Rick Nash and Derick Brassard scored less than 10 minutes into the game, and Henrik Lundqvist made 37 saves as the New York Rangers routed the Philadelphia Flyers 4-1 on Sunday night. Chris Kreider netted his team-leading 12th goal in the second period to help the Rangers win their third straight and fourth in five (4-0-1). New York, 8-2-1 in its last 11, is tied in points with Washington for second place in the Metropolitan Division one ahead of Philadelphia. The Rangers have won seven straight against the Flyers at home, outscoring them 28-8. Ray Emery rebounded after the rough first period and finished with 31 saves for the Flyers. Lundqvist lost his shutout bid when Mark Streit scored a power-play goal 6:49 into the third.Sabres 2, Capitals 1, SOWASHINGTON Cody Hodgson decided a lackluster game with the only goal in the shootout, and the Buffalo Sabres avoided matching the longest road losing streak in franchise history with a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. Tyler Ennis scored in the first period, and Ryan Miller made 28 saves for the Sabres, whose 11-game road skid was the second-longest in club history, behind a 12-game streak in the 2011-12 season. Jason Chimera also scored in the opening period, and Grubauer made 30 saves for the Capitals, who have lost five of seven.Maple Leafs 3, Devils 2, SOTORONTO James van Riemsdyk scored in the shootout to lift the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 3-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils.

Australian OpenTENNIS Djokovic offers a sweetener ahead of Aussie Open Action got underway today in Australia Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia It was a sweet deal. After answering an assortment of questions about his coach and his prospects for winning a fourth consecutive Australian Open title, Novak Djokovic halted his pretournament news conference and walked around the auditorium offering chocolates to the assembled critics. He originally offered chocolates as a sweetener last year at Melbourne Park, as a way of apologizing because he had to skip a scheduled photo shoot for the champion. As he opened the boxes of chocolates Sunday, he explained it as a little tradition we started last year. Then he got up, walked up a flight of stairs and started offering the chocolate delights around, joking about diets and insisting Its for free, its for free! Djokovic is aiming to be the first man in the Open era to win four consecutive Australian titles, and to join Roy Emerson as the only man with five or more. The No. 2-seeded Djokovic starts today against Slovakias Lukas Lacko, who is ranked No. 96. Thats a night match on Rod Laver Arena immediately preceding Serena Williams opener against Australian teenager Ashleigh Barty. Much of the attention on the men leading up to the first major of the season has centered on the comeback of some past greats as coaches for leading active players. Djokovic hired Boris Becker last month, but still hasnt had a hit with the six-time Grand Slam winner, and Roger Federer has recruited Stefan Edberg. Djokovic denied his decision was influenced by Andy Murrays success since teaming up with Ivan Lendl, a partnership that helped deliver Britain its first mens major championships since 1936. He decided it was time for a chance when long-time coach Marian Vijda couldnt commit to being on tour all year. Djokovic is on a 24-match winning streak since losing the U.S. Open final to Rafael Nadal, and concedes that any tampering with the support network is a potential risk. But I dont want to think from that perspective. Im excited about this partnership that I have with Boris, he said. All I see is positive results. Djokovic echoed comments from Federer and Murray about the return of past greats to the coaching ranks having a positive impact on tennis. Obviously, they have won so many Grand Slams between themselves, theyve all been No. 1s of the world, theyve been champions, they know what we all go through in particular moments, especially in the Grand Slams, he said. They can identify themselves through us. Becker has gained weight since his playing days, and recently had surgery on his ankle that has prevented him from hitting up with Djokovic. That hasnt stopped the young Serb from watching replays of matches from the 1980s, trying to analyze Beckers game. But tennis has evolved in a way because of the technology. Now the game is based on the baseline, longer rallies and so forth, he said. But, I believe with his great volleys, that aggressive kind of mindset also, from that point of view he can help me. The heavily loaded top half of the mens draw, featuring No. 1-ranked Nadal, No. 4 Murray, 17-time major winner Federer and No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro, the 2009 U.S. Open champion who warmed up with a title at the Sydney International on the weekend, starts Tuesday. Two-time defending womens champion Victoria Azarenka and No. 4ranked Maria Sharapova are on the bottom half of the draw and also get a day off today ahead of their first-round matches. 2014 starts with new, and old, rivalries for women Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia Tradition is on the side of Victoria Azarenka, but the hot favorite to win this years Australian Open is Serena Williams. At least, that was the slightly uncomfortable line of questioning Azarenka faced Sunday, on the eve of the Grand Slam event she has won for the past two years. In tennis terms, 2013 started with the spotlight on Azarenka but it ended undeniably as the year of Serena Williams who is ranked No. 1 and riding the momentum of a spectacular year. Everyone is talking about Williams, does that bother you? the No. 2-ranked Azarenka was asked at a pre-tournament news conference. Slightly taken aback, the defending champion found herself on the defensive. I dont really care about it, honestly, Azarenka replied. Its a matter of playing tennis and giving your best on the court. Would you agree that Serena is the one to beat in Melbourne came another question. Azarenka paused. Well, if you meet her, yes, she smiled. Based on her last season. Of course, everyone will be motivated to beat her. After an upset loss in last years Australian Open quarterfinals, Williams went into overdrive. She won 78 of her 82 matches in 2013 and collected 11 titles, including two majors. At the advanced age of 32, Williams is playing what some have described as the best tennis of her career quite an accomplishment for a player with 17 Grand Slams titles, including five in Melbourne. The year was less fruitful for 24-yearold Azarenka, who won two titles and was a finalist at the U.S. Open, where she lost to Williams. The U.S Open was one of four finals Azarenka and Williams played last year. Azarenka won two of them, making her the only woman to beat Williams more than once in the season. Williams made an early mark on 2014 by beating Azarenka at the Brisbane International final earlier this month, setting the tone for the Australian Open. Williams called it the beginning of new rivalry in womens tennis, which is in dire need of a few more. I think Victoria is great, Williams said during a news conference on the weekend. I think we have a really special thing going on right now. The tone is a bit chillier when it comes to the other main rivalry on the womens side, involving Williams and No. 4 Maria Sharapova. Last year, Sharapova and Williams made headlines for an off-court tiff that started over an interview Williams gave to Rolling Stone magazine before Wimbledon. In the article, Williams was quoted mocking an unnamed top-five player and her love life, saying the players boyfriend has a black heart. The author of the piece surmised that Williams was talking about Sharapova, who was and still is dating fellow pro Grigor Dimitrov, who was rumored to be one of Serenas exes. Sharapova shot back during a news conference at the All England Club: If she wants to talk about something personal, maybe she should talk about her relationship and her boyfriend that was married and is getting a divorce and has kids. Talk about other things, but not draw attention to other things. She has so much in her life, many positives, and I think thats what it should be about. That was a blatant reference to Williams coach Patrick Mouratoglou. Neither has publicly confirmed if their relationship extends beyond the court. Williams apologized personally to Sharapova, but the ongoing frosty feelings were on display in Brisbane where the two met in the semifinals and made a point of crossing the net on opposite sides during game changeovers. Williams wont get a chance to play both her rivals in Melbourne but could meet one of them in the final. Shes on the opposite side of the draw from Azarenka and Sharapova who could play each other in the semifinals.

NATIONALFOOTBALLLEAGUECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, JANUARY13, 2014 B5 Blount has 4 TD runs, Pats top Colts 43-22 Advance to third AFC Championship game in a row Associated PressFOXBOROUGH, Mass. LeGarrette Blount ran the Patriots into their third straight AFC championship game. The 250-pound back had four touchdown runs and New England kept Andrew Luck from a second straight comeback win to beat the Indianapolis Colts 43-22 Saturday night. Blount scored on three 2-yard runs in the first half, then burst through the right side of the line and rambled 73 yards into the end zone, where he placed the ball gently on the ground made soggy by a game-long rain. He finished with 166 yards on 24 carries. On the next series, Luck threw his third interception and the Patriots capitalized with Stevan Ridleys second touchdown run, a 1-yarder that finished the scoring with 11:12 left. The Colts (12-6) never led. Blount joined Ricky Watters, who had five touchdowns for San Francisco on Jan. 15, 1994, as the only players with four or more in a playoff game. And the six rushing touchdowns by the Patriots tied the 49ers total in that game for second most in playoff history. Blounts big rushing performance came two weeks after he ran for 189 yards and returned two kickoffs for 145 yards in a 34-20 victory over Buffalo in the regular-season finale. Billed as a matchup between quarterbacks long-time great Tom Brady and second-year star Luck the Patriots leader was content to hand off while Luck threw an interception on his second pass and never found consistency. He threw two touchdown passes to LaVon Brazill, but also threw four interceptions. Luck threw three interceptions a week earlier, but led the Colts from a 38-10 deficit early in the third quarter to a 45-44 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in a wild-card game. The Colts trailed 21-12 at halftime against the Patriots and cut it to 29-22 on a 35-yard pass to Brazill with 5:01 left in the third. The Patriots dominated the rest of the way. Blounts first touchdown came on New Englands first offensive play after Alfonzo Dennard intercepted Lucks pass and returned it 27 yards to the 2. Blount scored again on the Patriots second series in which Brady completed all four of his passes. But Luck responded with a seven-play, 80-yard drive capped by his 38-yard touchdown pass to Brazill, who was guarded closely by Dennard as he made the catch on the left side a few yards from the end zone. Former Patriot Adam Vinatieri set an NFL record with his 59th post-season extra point, making it 14-7. Blount got his third touchdown with 4:06 gone in the second quarter on a drive in which the Patriots converted all four of their third downs. Vinatieri cut it to 21-10 with a 36-yard field goal 5:35 before halftime. The Colts got a break late in the first half when Danny Aikens snap sailed over punter Ryan Allens head. Allen ran back, recovered the ball at his 3, but fumbled into the air. Indianapolis Jeris Pendleton slapped it out of the end zone for a safety, cutting New Englands lead to 21-12 with 2:12 remaining. Allen hurt his shoulder and placekicker Stephen Gostkowski punted the rest of the game. Indianapolis got the ball on the free kick, but the drive ended with Lucks second interception, to linebacker Dontae Hightower. Vinatieris 21-yard field goal early in the third quarter made it 21-15. Then the Patriots took a 29-15 lead on Ridleys 3-yard touchdown run and his carry for a 2-point conversion with 6:18 to go in the third. But Luck came right back with his second touchdown pass to Brazill. Associated PressNew England running back LeGarrette Blount breaks free Saturday night from Indianapolis safety LaRon Landry and heads downfield for a touchdown during the second half of an AFC divisional playoff game in Foxborough, Mass. The Patriots won 43-22 to advance to a third straight AFC Championship game. NFL BRIEFSTitans exec Dawson interviews for Dolphins GM jobMIAMI Tennessee Titans vice president of player personnel Lake Dawson has become the fifth candidate to interview for the Miami Dolphins job of general manager. Dawson, who interviewed Sunday, joined the Titans in 2007 as director of pro scouting, became vice president of football operations in 2011 and became vice president of player personnel in 2012.

Interviewed earlier for the Miami job were Browns assistant general manager Ray Farmer, Steelers director of football and business administration Omar Khan, Cardinals vice president of player personnel Jason Licht and Dolphins assistant general manager Brian Gaine.Beast quake: Seahawks fans rock stadium againSEATTLE Seismologists said Seahawks fans shook the ground under Seattles CenturyLink Field during Saturdays defeat of the New Orleans Saints, causing another fangenerated earthquake. The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous beast quake touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. John Vidale of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington told The Seattle Times they will know for sure in a few days. Fans jumped and stomped their way to magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake in 2011 during Lynchs rambling, tacklebreaking beast quake run.Ex-NFL player on trial for fatal drunken wreckDALLAS Josh Brent is no longer a Dallas Cowboy, but the stars on his old helmet figure heavily into his upcoming trial for a teammates death in a 2012 wreck. Brents trial is set to start today on allegations that he was driving drunk and caused the death of Dallas practice squad player Jerry Brown. If convicted of intoxication manslaughter or manslaughter, Brent could get 20 years in prison, but he could also get probation.From wire reports Seattle avoids being bit by lower seed Saints Associated PressSEATTLE In the afterglow of advancing to the NFC championship game, Russell Wilson patrolled the Seattle Seahawks locker room making sure the message was still clear to his teammates. We havent done anything yet, Wilson said. Thats our goal, we have 60 minutes of football left. I was talking to some of the guys in the locker room, I was talking to Coach Carroll, I was just kind of sitting there. You have 60 minutes left of football, 60 minutes of your life, the best 60 minutes that you can possibly play, and then you play in the Super Bowl. The Seahawks are one step from the Super Bowl because in the NFC divisional playoff game against New Orleans on Saturday they leaned on the principles Pete Carroll put in place in the infancy of his arrival in Seattle. The Seahawks have been about running the football and playing defense first and foremost, well before Wilson arrived or Percy Harvin was acquired. It was of little surprise that Marshawn Lynch kept getting carries and Seattle used another swarming defensive effort against Drew Brees and New Orleans potent offense in Saturdays 23-15 victory. It was a blustery, nasty day where those traits Carroll values so deeply were brought to the forefront. Lynch finished with a franchise playoff record 140 yards rushing and both of Seattles touchdowns. This is exactly why you make a commitment to be a balanced offense and a balanced football team, so that when you have these kinds of opportunities and situations that you can play D, you can stick with your kicking game and come through and you can run the football, Carroll said. I think it was really a great look. Seattle will host San Francisco next Sunday in the NFC championship game with the possibility of advancing to the Super Bowl for the second time in franchise history. Seattles only Super Bowl trip came in the 2005 playoffs when it routed Carolina in the NFC championship game at home. It will be the third meeting this season between the division rivals, with each team winning on their home field. Seattle won 29-3 in December and San Francisco earned a 19-17 victory in December. It feels awesome, but this doesnt mean anything if we dont win next week, Seattle fullback Michael Robinson said. Even though he again was one of the top running backs in the league, Lynchs regular season lacked consistency. Much of that was due to blocking struggles by Seattles offensive line, but something clicked against the Saints and the Seahawks kept turning to their bruising back. Lynch had 69 yards in the first half, including his 15-yard touchdown run that gave Seattle a 13-0 lead early in the second quarter. But it was his 31-yard touchdown run with 2:40 left that provided the capper for Seattle. The 1and 2-yard runs from earlier in the game finally popped with Lynchs TD run that left CenturyLink Field shaking again. I just stayed with what we were calling and just believed in my team, Lynch said. Seattles final numbers defensively wont look astounding even though they stymied Brees and the Saints offense for much of the game. New Orleans had 205 of its 409 total yards in the fourth quarter. The longest play of the game, a 52-yard pass from Brees to Robert Meacham, should have been intercepted by either Earl Thomas or Byron Maxwell but instead deflected into Meachams hands. The 409 yards were the most allowed by Seattle since Week 4 at Houston. Hes going to fight all the way through until the clock hits zero and you saw that, Thomas said of Brees. If we give him a window of opportunity, he always capitalizes. But fortunately, we didnt give him too many. The lingering question for the Seahawks will be the health of Harvin, who played in just his second game of the season. Harvin suffered a concussion late in the first half jumping for a pass in the end zone and getting hit as he landed on the field by New Orleans safety Malcolm Jenkins. It was the second big hit Harvin absorbed after getting belted by Rafael Bush on Seattles opening possession. Harvin brought a jolt of energy and excitement to Seattles offense before being injured. Harvin led Seattle with three receptions and had a 9-yard run on his lone carry. He also drew attention and made Seattles offense function better. The Seahawks had 163 yards of offense in the first half and 114 yards in the second half, 62 on their final possession. It certainly seemed like he had a contribution that was obvious, Carroll said. He almost popped that run when we had him going on the edge, and we had that big third down play. Just unfortunately, he got smacked a couple of times, and he couldnt stay out there.

B6MONDAY, JANUARY13, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.To start this week, for a change of pace, lets have some golf trivia questions. First, how far did the longest drive go on the PGA tour last year? Having been asked that question, you are probably expecting todays deal to be a grand slam, the longest drive in bridge. Instead, though, here is a small slam. However, if you played it during a tournament and went down, it would make the drive home feel very long. South is in six spades. West leads the diamond two. How should declarer plan the play? South had a textbook three-spade opening: a good seven-card suit and some 6-10 high-card points. North used Blackwood, hoping his partner had the spade ace and a minor-suit king, which would probably have made seven notrump laydown. When South denied an ace, though, North had to be content with six spades. (Yes, he should have signed off in six no-trump, to avoid a potentially fatal minor-suit lead. But that would have ruined the story.) The careless declarer would win the first trick and immediately play a trump. But East would win with his ace and give West a diamond ruff. Leading a low card usually guarantees at least one honor in that suit. South, though, can see all five diamond honors. So he should fear that the lead is a singleton. Before playing a trump, declarer should cash dummys top hearts and discard his remaining diamond. Then he can lead a trump and claim shortly thereafter. Phil Mickelson hit the longest drive at 450 yards. His ball rolled a long way down a cart path.

They do not have any friends or hobbies, so they choose to cling to us. They insist on doing everything we do, going everywhere we go. Our children are active in sports and often play on the weekends. That means we spend every weekend with my in-laws. They talk to their son the whole time about nonsense, not even caring that they are distracting him and everyone around who is trying to watch the kids activities. My husband and I dont get to spend much time together, and theres no opportunity to do it at our kids games because the in-laws stand between us and take over any conversation. My husband wont say anything, but its driving me nuts. Ive tried not giving them the kids schedules, but that doesnt help. They invite us for dinner at least once a month and get their feelings hurt when we cant go. They believe we should come for every holiday. They dont ever consider that we might want to be alone with our kids or that there is family on my side whom we might want to see. My in-laws are nice people, but I want to be able to do stuff with my husband and kids without them being there every time. This has been causing problems between my husband and me. Please, grandparents, find a hobby. Smothered in California Dear Smothered: This is an issue of boundaries. Dinner once a month with the inlaws is not excessive if the encounters are nontoxic. And they should be able to attend their grandchildrens sporting events for a few hours on a weekend. However, you are right that they seem to intrude on a great deal of your family time, and their expectations are out of line. Its OK to tell them no politely but firmly. Please discuss this with your husband so you are in agreement. His parents will learn to live with the disappointment, but your husband must back you up. Dear Annie: I am raising my two granddaughters because their parents are in jail. I love them, but I never get a break unless I can pay a babysitter, and it is a bit much. No one ever offers to take them, including the other grandparents, my siblings and my friends. I understand that people have their own problems, but it is discouraging to see that no one cares enough to offer even a little help, and it would mean so much. I know I am doing whats best for my grandchildren, which makes it worthwhile regardless, but I am an Exhausted Grandmother Dear Grandmother: Have you asked these people directly to give you a breather? If not, please do so. You are obviously a loving grandmother, but theres no reason to be a martyr, waiting for others to offer assistance. Tell the other grandparents that you would like them to take the children next weekend. If they refuse, tell them to choose the weekend they prefer. Ask your siblings to spend a few hours with the kids on a Saturday. And contact AARP (aarp.org) for information on grandparents raising grandchildren and resources for respite care. Dear Annie: A Friend of Waiters was disturbed by her friends treatment of restaurant staff, complaining and sending food back to the kitchen. I have a relative who is similarly difficult. Whenever we go out, I choose a buffetstyle restaurant. This way, she can see what she is getting and choose accordingly. If she doesnt like her choice, she can leave it and try something else. There is no waitstaff to berate or reason to demand that dishes be sent back. The worst she has ever done at a buffet restaurant is complain that our table was not clean enough.
