Somebody throws popcorn. Im not sure who threw the popcorn, said Charles Cummings, who, as a birthday treat, was about to watch the movie Lone Survivor at The Grove 16 Theater. And then bang, he was shot. Curtis Reeves, 71, has been charged with second-degree murder and its not immediately clear whether he has retained an attorney. Pasco County Sheriffs officials said the shooting happened when Reeves asked 43-year-old Chad Oulson to stop texting at the theater in Wesley Chapel, a suburb about a half hour north of downtown Tampa. Reeves and his wife were sitting behind Oulson and his wife. Oulson told Reeves that he was texting with his 3-year-old daughter, Cummings said. It ended almost as quickly as it started, said sheriffs spokesman Doug Tobin. The sheriffs office said an off-duty Sumter County deputy detained Reeves until police arrived. Cummings and his son Alex who both had blood on their clothes as they walked out of the theater told a group of reporters Monday afternoon that the show was still in previews when the two couples started arguing.

SIDIBE Staff writerNotwithstanding the past weeks much-ballyhooed polar vortex, which gripped and chilled the nation for several days, scientists believe very cold winter snaps have become much more rare in Florida. And to illustrate their point about an overall climate warming trend, a study released recently points to the northward creep of a forest that used to fringe the states southern shoreline, but was mostly absent in Floridas central, northern shores mangroves. Mangroves are thickets of saltwatertolerant trees located along coastlines in the worlds tropical and sub-tropical regions. Mangroves cannot generally thrive in sustained cold temperatures. Using satellite data over a 28-year period, researchers found cold spells when temperatures drop below 25 degrees have become fewer, causing mangrove vegetation in portions of Central and North Florida to double. The study by a team of seven ecologists published their finding Dec. 30 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. The study focused mostly on the east coast of Florida from the south to the historical northern limits of mangroves in St. Augustine. Scientists were shocked by the rapidity of the change in some areas. For example, from 1984 through 2011, with only 1.4 fewer days a year below 25 degrees in Daytona Beach or 1.2 days a year in Titusville, the researcher found a doubling of mangrove habitat in those areas. Citrus County is about the same latitude as Daytona Beach. Before this work, there had been some scattered anecdotal accounts and observations of mangroves appearing in areas where people had not seen them, but they were very local, said study lead author Kyle Cavanaugh, a postdoctoral researcher at Brown University and at the Smithsonian Institution. One unique aspect of this work is that we were able to use this incredible time series of largescale satellite imagery to show that this expansion is a regional phenomenon. Its a very large. Mangroves on the move Experts say increasingly warm weather helps tropical trees expand range northward MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleLush mangrove trees are once again thriving along Citrus Countys saltwater coastline. The trees provide excellent habitat for many species of birds and aquatic life. CHRISVANORMER Staff writerA physician who owns and operates a clinic in Homosassa has agreed to pay $400,000 to resolve allegations that he billed Medicaid for vein injections and physician office visits performed by unqualified personnel, the Justice Department announced last week. Vein injections and other invasive procedures should be performed by appropriately qualified personnel, said Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Departments Civil Division Stuart F. Delery. We will not tolerate those who put patients health at risk for their personal gain and convenience. Dr. Ravi Sharma, owner Local M.D. to pay $400K to settle Medicare case Physician denies wrongdoing See SETTLE/ Page A8 Early data shows health care site signups skewing older Disappointed officials wanted more young, healthy people Associated PressWASHINGTON Its an older, costlier crowd thats signing up so far for health insurance under President Barack Obamas law, according to government figures released Monday. Enrollments are lower for the healthy, younger Americans who will be needed to keep premiums from rising. Young adults from 18 to 34 are only 24 percent of total enrollment so far, the administration said in its first signup figures broken down for age, gender and other details. With the healthcare.gov website now working, the figures cover the more than 2 million Americans who had signed up for government-subsidized private insurance through the end of December in new federal and state markets. Enrolling young and healthy people is important because they generally pay more into the system than they take out, subsidizing older adults. While 24 percent is not a bad start, say independent experts, it should be closer to 40 percent to help keep premiums down. Adults ages 55 to 64 were the most heavily represented in the signups, accounting for 33 percent of the total. Overall, the premiums paid by people in that demographic dont fully cover their medical expenses. Some are in the waiting room for Medicare; that coverage starts at age 65. Some questions remained unanswered. For example, the administration is unable to say how of many of those enrolling for coverage had been previously uninsured. Experts believe many of the early signups were people who had their own coverage. Some might have been among the more than 4.7 million whose previous policies were canceled because they didnt meet the laws standards. The uninsured folks for whom the law was intended dont seem to have signed up in nearly as high numbers, said Richard Foster, who previously served as the HHS statistics chief. There is still a huge unknown aspect to this. Even if the age mix remains tilted toward older adults, its nothing of the sort that would trigger instability in the system, said Larry Levitt, an insurance expert with the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. Premiums would go up next year See HEALTH/ Page A2 See MOVE/ Page A2 Dr. Ravi Sharma
Cummings said the man in the back row later identified as Reeves got up and left the auditorium, presumably to get a manager. But he came back after a few minutes, without a manager and appeared upset. Moments later, the argument between the two men resumed, and the man in the front row stood up. Officials said Oulson asked Reeves if he reported him to management for using his phone. Cummings said the men started raising their voices and popcorn was thrown. Authorities said Reeves took out a gun, and Oulsons wife put her hand over her husband, and thats when Reeves fired his weapon, striking Nichole Oulson in the hand and her husband in the chest. I cant believe people would bring a pistol, a gun, to a movie, Cummings said. I cant believe they would argue and fight and shoot one another over popcorn. Over a cellphone. Cummings, who said he was a combat Marine in Vietnam, said Oulson fell onto him and his son. Blood started coming out of his mouth, said Alex Cummings. It was just a very bad scene. Charles Cummings said his son went to call 911, while Cummings and another patron who claimed to a nurse began performing CPR on the victim. A man sitting next to the shooter grabbed the gun out of his hand, and the suspect did not attempt to get away, Cummings said. Oulson and his wife were taken by ambulance to a Tampa-area hospital, where Chad Oulson died, Tobin said. His wifes injuries werent considered life-threatening. Tampa Police spokeswoman Laura McElroy said in a news release that Reeves was a captain when he retired from the department in 1993. She added that he was instrumental in establishing the agencys first tactical response team. for the overhaul, along with taxpayer costs per enrollee, but not enough to push the system into a death spiral in which rising premiums discourage healthy people from signing up. Still, it underscores a need to heighten outreach efforts to young people, added Levitt. Adults ages 18 to 34 represent 40 percent of the target group for the health care law, according to a recent Kaiser study. Open enrollment ends March 31. Considering that the federal health care website was down most of the time in October, administration officials said they were pleased that the percentage of young adults was as high as it was. We think that more and more young people are going to sign up as time goes by, said Gary Cohen, head of the Health and Human Services Departments office in charge of Obamas push to cover the uninsured. With Mondays numbers, a fuller picture has started to emerge of whos signing up. But there are still gaps. Some of the highlights:The administration continues to play catch-up. Originally, officials hoped to sign up more than 3.3 million people through the end of 2013, nearly halfway to the goal of 7 million enrollments by the end of March. Instead, enrollment as of Dec. 31 was not quite 2.2 million.Fifty-four percent of those who signed up were women, a slightly higher proportion of females than in the population.Nearly four out of five who signed up got financial help with their premiums.The most popular coverage option was a socalled silver plan, which covers about 70 percent of expected medical costs. Three out of five people picked silver. One in five picked a lower-cost bronze plan. Only 13 percent picked gold, which most closely compares to the typical employer plan. Another 7 percent went for top-tier platinum plans, and about 1 percent picked skimpy catastrophic plans available only to certain groups of people, including those under 30.A few states accounted for a huge share of the enrollment. California alone had 23 percent of the signups. California, New York, Florida, Texas and North Carolina accounted for nearly half the total. Officials remain confident theyll be able to get young adults interested. Insurers, nonprofit groups, and advocates are moving ahead with marketing campaigns that were put on hold when the federal website that serves 36 states was struggling. In Miami, 19-year-old college student Stacy Sylvain was one of the lastminute online signups as 2013 drew to a close. In about an hour, the parttime waitress signed up for a plan with a $158 monthly premium, with the feds kicking in $48. She has a $2,500 deductible. Sylvain said she had no trouble navigating the website. Dr. Chris Anastasiou, the head of the Southwest Florida Water Management Districts springs restoration team, said the study reveals some of the very things he has been casually observing on the Nature Coast. Anastasiou is less concerned about the encroachment on the marshes ecology by mangroves as he is about something else. My big concern is as the mangroves move north, they will bring with them all the other exotic species from South Florida, Anastasiou said. Highly invasive species like Brazilian pepper and Australian pine. I have already seen a few of the Brazilian peppers on Fort Island Trail and they can be a huge problem. We must all work together to help prevent these foot soldiers of the plant world from wreaking havoc on our native habitats, as they have done in so many areas of South Florida. Anastasiou said though mangroves are common, they are not considered a problem in Citrus County, mostly due to the fact that it still gets cold enough in winter to keep them under control at least for now, he noted. Dr. Bob Bonde, a U.S. Geological Survey scientist and leading manatee expert, said there is a silver lining for manatees during a warming climate event. Glacial events like this will be good for manatees. It will disperse them and they will have more places to go, Bonde said. He said a cooling event 110,000 years ago caused manatees to disappear from Florida, and they stayed away for about 90,000 years. Between 10,000 and 15,000 years ago, they returned to the warm waters of Florida, but have generally stayed away from Central and Northern Florida unless there are natural warm springs or power plants. Its all about immigration for manatees, Bonde said. As a lot of the power plants close, manatees will continue to go in greater numbers to places like Crystal River because of the springs, and when glacial events like what is occurring now happen, we will continue to see their numbers increase in the northern part of the peninsula.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerLinda Sojka was just telling her brother how she wished the Christmas display known as Sojka Wonderland could stay intact. She decided to say a little prayer about it. Moments later, Impact Church called and her prayers were answered. The Christmas magical wonderland that Linda and her husband, Frank, had assembled in Inverness the past 15 years was sold to the Lake Wales-based church. The skating rink, miniature Ferris wheel, 16-foot reindeer, railroad track and thousands of lights excluding the ones for their house all sold in one package to the church, which plans to recreate the festivity on its own property. Its the best option for Frank and Linda Sojka, who went into their last year of entertaining thousands of adults and children thinking they would sell off each display individually. I hate to see this broke up piecemeal, all over the place, Linda Sojka said, recalling the conversation with her brother. A phone call from Impact Church changed all that. A church staff member read about the Sojkas final year and convinced other staffers to take the drive to Inverness for a look. They saw the display by day and night, and spoke with the Sojkas about the handiwork and effort. They said they were really impressed, Mrs. Sojka said. One member, a military veteran, was especially taken that Frank Sojka, a disabled veteran, built the displays. On New Years Day, the Sojkas received word that the church leadership had approved their offer and board members came by to take more pictures and video. She said church leaders asked the Sojkas to help recreate the display next Christmas season in a large field the church owns in Lake Wales, about 45 miles southwest of Orlando. Lori Connell, office manager at the Impact Church, said the display will serve a purpose. Itll draw people, draw attention to the church, she said. The second reason we want it is for telling the Christmas story. The church wants to keep the name Sojka Wonderland, which delights the Sojkas. It really is a great, great thing, Mrs. Sojka said. A lot of new people will be able to see it.

STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE From wire reports Lecanto man faces firearm charge CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER An incident that started with gunshots early Monday became a highspeed chase on U.S.19 that ended with the suspect pulling into a parking lot. James John Crockett, 33, of South Gilbert Terrace, Lecanto, was arrested at 3:36a.m. Monday at 200 N. Suncoast Blvd. (U.S. 19), Crystal River, on charges of possession of a firearm a black 9-mm semi-automatic handgun by a convicted felon, driving while license suspended or revoked as a habitual traffic offender and failing to stop or fleeing a law enforcement officer after being ordered to stop. His bond was set at $13,000. According to an arrest report from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, at about 1:40a.m. Monday, a deputy was called to a residence on West Vincent Lane, Crystal River, on a report of a domestic disturbance. While traveling north on North Citrus Avenue to the residence, the deputy was advised by dispatch that Crockett had fled in a black Mitsubishi Eclipse after brandishing a firearm and shooting several rounds into the woods as parting shots. Shortly afterward, the deputy observed Crocketts vehicle pass him about one-quarter mile north of U.S.19. When the deputy turned around, Crockett was reported to have accelerated and continued heading toward U.S.19. While in pursuit, the deputy reported he observed the Eclipse drive through the red traffic signal at North Citrus Avenue and U.S.19, turning left to continue south. With lights and siren in operation, the deputy gave chase and reported the Eclipse continued to accelerate on U.S.19, approaching top speeds of about 120mph. The pursuit did not last long. Crockett pulled into a parking lot at a restaurant near U.S.19s junction with West Venable Street, according to the report. Drawing firearms, deputies told Crockett to exit his vehicle. He was handcuffed and read his Miranda rights. Crockett then told deputies that a gun was under the back seat of the Eclipse, the arrest report stated.

Due to the amount of work it takes, the Sojkas decided this past Christmas would be the last time they would decorate their yard with hundreds of thousands of lights and hundreds of decorations. However, a church in Lake Wales learned the Sojkas would be selling their decorations and has agreed to buy their inventory. Sojka Wonderland display moving to Lake Wales Report: Man leads police on chase, tosses drugs A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerA self-described junkie was arrested Saturday on drug charges, but not before taking deputies on a chase during which hes alleged to have tossed the contraband. Bryan Joseph Skuta, 29, of Bulldog Lane, Inverness, is facing charges of possession with intent to sell a controlled substance (meth); driving while license suspended; fleeing from law enforcement, reckless driving; drug paraphernalia and tampering with evidence. His bond is $31,250. Citrus County Deputies Randy Pollard and Heath Schaffer were conducting surveillance in an unmarked vehicle when Skuta and a passenger reportedly rolled through a stop sign. Pollard and Schaffer tried to intercept Skutas vehicle on another block and again the deputies noticed Skuta fail to come to a complete stop at a stop sign. The deputies activated their siren, but Skuta had other plans, according to his arrest affidavit. Skuta decided to flee and reportedly was cutting sharply across oncoming traffic and swerving. He also was clocked at speeds in excess of 60mph in a 35mph zone. Near the end of the chase, Schaffer reportedly observed that the passenger in Skutas vehicle had both his hands up and appeared to a have a drink cup in his hands. Schaffer also saw the driver throw something out of the passenger window. Skuta soon stopped and he and the passenger were detained. The deputies went back to where they thought Skuta threw something out of the vehicle and found three clear-plastic baggies containing meth amphetamine. They also found a small container with red tape on it lying next to the baggies. According to the report, that container appeared to be the vessel used to store the baggies. The passenger told deputies Skuta knew they were tailing him and that Skuta told him, I am going to run when the siren was activated. The man also told investigators Skuta tried to get him to get rid of the drugs, but he refused. Skuta began talking to investigators, initially telling a deputy that he wasnt going to sell that meth. Im a junky. However, Skuta reportedly quickly followed that he was denying all charges against him and ended the interview. He was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

The Golden Globes are typically Hollywoods bawdiest awards show a wonderful mess, said co-host Tina Fey of this years bash. But in the end, after all the boozy banter some of it bleeped for broadcast the 1970s corruption tale American Hustle got a very serious push toward Oscar glory, picking up three major awards. Benefiting the most from Sunday nights Globes as focus shifts to the Academy Awards, David O. Russells con caper locked in best comedy, best actress (Amy Adams ) and best supporting actress ( Jennifer Lawrence). Not that early-season favorite Years a Slave isnt still in the running. Though it earned only one award, Steve McQueens historical epic took home the nights top honor: best film drama. Oscar doesnt usually care much for comedies, but American Hustle offers a rich blend of scandal, style and superb acting that is bound to get Academy voters attention. With the Oscar nominations coming Thursday, lost-in-space saga Gravity, which earned Alfonso Cuaron the best director Globe, could pick up some additional pull with likely nominations in the craft categories, which the Globes dont recognize. Theres also a lot of built-in affection for its leading lady, Sandra Bullock, not to mention the films impressive worldwide box office performance.Prince to appear after Super BowlPASADENA, Calif.

of Premier Vein Centers, has settled allegations that he violated the False Claims Act through paying the sum of $400,000. We are pleased to announce this very favorable resolution of our claims against this provider, said Acting U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Florida A. Lee Bentley III. Again, it demonstrates our commitment to civil health care fraud enforcement in our district. Through his attorney, Sharma stated that he settled the civil lawsuit to avoid prolonged litigation, but the settlement does not include admission of wrongdoing. The government alleged that between 2009 and 2010, Sharma owned and operated a clinic called Premier Vein Centers, with branches in Homosassa and in Summerfield, a Marion County community. Beginning in 2009, Sharma allegedly sent text messages to his office manager instructing her to perform varicose vein injections on patients when he was not in the office. The government further alleged that when Sharma was in the office, he performed unnecessary vein injections and unnecessary ultrasound imaging procedures associated with those vein injections. During the same time span, Sharma also owned and operated a weight loss clinic that has since been closed, according to the Justice Department. Allegedly, unqualified personnel met with patients of the clinic, but Sharma billed those visits as physician office visits using his own Medicare provider number. The allegations covered by the settlement originally were raised in a lawsuit filed by Patti Lovell, the former office manager for Sharma, under the qui tam,or whistleblower, provisions of the False Claims Act, which permit private parties to sue on behalf of the government for the submission of false claims and to receive a share of any recovery. Lovell will receive $72,000. As part of the settlement, Sharma entered into a three-year Integrity Agreement with the Office of Inspector General of the Department of Health and Human Services. The agreement requires Sharma to attend training courses provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and provides for an independent external review of his federal health care program coding and billing procedures. No disciplinary action has been taken. Sharma will continue to participate in federal programs. The lawsuit is captionedU.S. ex rel. Lovell v. Ravi Sharma, M.D. and Premier Vein Centers, 12-CV-133 (M.D. Fla.). The claims resolved by the settlement are allegations only, and there has been no determination of liability.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanormer @chronicleonline.com.

The massive measure fleshes out the details of the budget deal that Congress passed last month. That pact gave relatively modest relief to the Pentagon and domestic agencies from the deep budget cuts they would otherwise face. Leaders of the House and Senate Appropriations committees were trying to finalize the few remaining details and release the measure likely to exceed 1,000 pages by late Monday. That would allow House consideration before a shortterm spending bill expires at midnight Wednesday evening. The Senate is expected to take up to three additional days to vote final approval of the measure. To cover that period, lawmakers are expected to approve a short-term spending measure that would prevent a federal shutdown. Details were closely held under orders from House Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers, R-Ky., and Senate counterpart Barbara Mikulski, D-Md., who have worked to try to ensure that the measure doesnt topple of its own weight. To be sure, there is plenty for both parties to oppose in the legislation. Conservatives face a vote to fund implementation of President Barack Obamas health care overhaul and Wall Street regulations, both enacted in 2010 over solid Republican opposition. Liberals are more likely to climb aboard, but only after voting to give Obama about $6 billion more in Pentagon war funding than the $79 billion he requested. The additional war money is helping the Pentagon deal with a cash crunch in troop readiness accounts. The alternative, however, is to allow automatic spending cuts to strike for a second year and even risk another government shutdown if Congress deadlocks. At the same time, the bill is laced with sweeteners, including a provision exempting disabled veterans from a pension cut enacted last month to help pay for the budget relief in the spending bill. It contains increases for veterans medical care backed by both sides and fully funds food aid for lowincome pregnant women and their children. The National Institutes of Health is sure to fall short of the $31 billion budget it won when Democrats controlled Congress. Overall, the measure keeps funding for day-to-day domestic agency budgets at levels agreed to last year before cuts of 5 percent were applied to every account. Those broadly applied cuts, called sequestration, were required because of Washingtons inability to follow up a 2011 budget deal with additional deficit savings. Lawmakers put finishing touches on new spending bill Associated PressWASHINGTON The Senate confirmed one of President Barack Obamas key judicial nominees on Monday, completing an overhaul of the countrys second most powerful court into one dominated by Democratic-appointed judges. The Senate voted 55-43 to confirm Robert Wilkins to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. That gives Democratic appointees a 7-4 majority on the politically influential bench. The D.C. Circuit, second in clout only to the Supreme Court, hears appeals of White House actions and federal rules and regulations. Wilkins confirmation is a fresh demonstration of Senate Democrats ability to push through most presidential nominations by a simple majority, thanks to a weakening of filibusters that they muscled through the chamber in November. It came on the same day the Supreme Court heard arguments about a constitutional provision relating to temporary presidential appointments. At issue is Obamas use of the provision to make so-called recess appointments, which presidents can make without Senate approval. Obama applauded the confirmation of Wilkins, who was previously approved unanimously by the Senate for a district judgeship. Obama said Wilkins would bring important perspective to the D.C. Circuit. He has applied the law with the utmost impartiality and integrity, Obama said in a statement. I am confident that he will continue to do so on the D.C. Circuit. Republicans resistance to many Obama nominees, including judges, prompted Democrats to change years of Senate filibuster tradition. Instead of requiring 60 votes to move nominations forward, the Senate can advance almost all presidential nominees on a simple majority vote. The change virtually assured Wilkins confirmation. In a just over a month, the Senate has confirmed two other Obama nominees to the court, Patricia Millett and Cornelia Nina Pillard.

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 2014 Make a difference; give bloodYou may pass them in the aisle at the grocery, sit next to them in church or see them stepping off of a school bus; right here in our community are a quiet group of people who are saving lives because they make the decision to donate blood. January is set aside nationally as Blood Donor Awareness Month, and LifeSouth would like to thank all of those who donated blood in the past year. Whether it was a blood drive at school, at work, in the parking lot of a shopping center or at one of our donor centers, this special group of people made an impact for people living right here. There are thousands of people who survived to welcome 2014 because these anonymous lifesavers decided to take a few minutes out of a day to make a difference. Cancer patients, trauma victims, newborn babies and many more benefitted. Nationally, donor numbers are small just more than 4 percent of Americans give regularly. Fortunately, many come back again and again to help. They have saved the lives of our neighbors, our friends and possibly their own family members, and they could certainly use some help in 2014. At a time when were still considering our New Years resolutions, think about becoming a blood donor or giving more often because that change could help someone right here in Citrus County. An investment of a few minutes could mean a lifetime of difference for someone in the coming year.Ed Keith district director LifeSouth Community Blood Centers Greene was a man of passion and caringFor those who knew Geoff Greene professionally, most will agree he had a passion for his job and for those who worked for him. I had the pleasure of knowing Geoff personally and think of him as one of the most caring and generous people I have ever known. He and his wife Shelia did a great deal for me and my family for which we will always be grateful. Much has been said recently regarding the challenges Geoff faced during his political career. I hope those who did not feel as I be silent during this most difficult time, you have had your say. Life is short and we should be more caring in our dealings with one another regardless of our core beliefs. Stuart Bozeman Beverly HillsA man rememberedWhat a wonderful tribute to Jim Wellborn written by Nancy Kennedy in the Jan. 2 edition of the Chronicle. I agree wholeheartedly, he was a gentleman. Although I did not know him socially, I played with him on stage at the Art League Theatre. He was a warm and caring, quiet person, but a delight to be in the company of. I am a hugger and he always welcomed a warm one from me. Although many people pass through our lives that we tend to forget, Jim will always be a part of my memories.Dolores Elwood Beverly Hills DOUGLASCOHN ANDELEANORCLIFTWASHINGTONHaving loyally served presidents in both political parties, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates was the epitome of competence and professionalism, a true patriot. Selfeffacing and coolly efficient, he won accolades from Democrats and Republicans alike. Everyone admired this apparently fairminded analyst who had honed his skills at the CIA, and served as its director during George H.W. Bushs administration. When President-elect Barack Obama asked Gates to stay on as Defense Secretary to help wind down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Gates readily agreed, and for all any of us knew, he served ably and willingly. Then comes this bombshell, a memoir titled Duty, that peels away the veneer of loyal cabinet member that Gates had adhered to for so long to reveal a petty and vindictive partisan seething inside much of the time, by his own admission. Exactly what he seethed about doesnt amount to much, since at the end of his 594-page account, he said Obama was right in each of the decisions he made in prosecuting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. What Gates faults the president for is insufficient passion for the course he set along with insufficient deference to the military commanders, questioning them in a manner that suggested a lack of trust. Reading this, the president comes across a lot better than the self-regarding Gates. Obama was doing what a civilian commander in chief is supposed to do, grill the military and not take anything at face value. The two approaches are epitomized in the Kennedy administration with the Bay of Pigs, where the new president didnt ask questions, and the Cuban Missile Crisis, where JFK stared down the military and kept us out of nuclear war. The first part of Gates book deals with the time he spent as Bushs Defense Secretary, and he finds surprisingly little to argue about, spending most of the book as Obamas judge and jury. He chafes at the controlling nature of the White House staff, likening it to the Nixon White House, and complains that domestic political issues intruded all the time. He said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted that her opposition to the surge in Iraq was political, that she did it to position herself in the Iowa caucuses to counter Obamas opposition to the Iraq war, which she had supported. Gates hits Vice President Biden the hardest, saying he hasnt gotten anything right in foreign policy and national security in 40 years. Thats a huge generality, and it reflects the deepening gulf between Republicans and Democrats on every issue, coupled with Gates evident resentment that Biden was the administrations attack dog internally, taking on the Pentagon and refusing to be cowed. What Gates hopes to achieve with this memoir other than maybe padding his bank account is hard to decipher. Obama wont be up for election again; Biden may or may not run for president in 2016. Hillary Clinton has the most to lose or to gain from Gates portrayal of her. Should she run for president, her opponents will point to her allegedly playing politics with the Iraq war. Overall, however, Gates comments about Clinton are so flattering, its almost an endorsement. He calls her smart, idealistic but pragmatic, tough-minded, indefatigable, funny, a very valuable colleague, and a superb representative of the United States all over the world. By his own admission, Gates didnt challenge Obama when he was on the inside; instead he quietly seethed. If he felt as strongly as this book indicates, it was his duty to speak up, internally at first, and then if it was so unbearable, he should have resigned in protest and gone public at the time. Think Elliot Richardson, Nixons attorney general who resigned rather than obey the presidents order to fire the Watergate special prosecutor. Thats what statesmen and patriots do, Mr. Gates.

Other times, well, you just have to declare enough is enough. And when it comes to the decision by the Board of County Commissioners to limit public participation with its unfortunate interpretation of a state senate bill, enough is well and truly enough. On Sept. 24, the board adopted the Public Participation Ordinance, a misnomer of a title if ever there was one, which allows for three minutes of public comment per citizen five if you represent an organization at the beginning of its meetings and, well, thats it. Thats all you and your fellow citizens get. In some respect, it is understandable why commissioners adopted the new ordinance. Time after time, the same members of the public felt a need to be heard on every subject. Commissioners likely felt this move would cut those members back to one three-minute speech rather than multiple three-minute speeches. The publics trust breached, its outcry was rightfully fervent, and the boards response has, regrettably, been less than encouraging. Standing by its decision, the board has continued to gag the very constituency who saw fit to put them in office in the first place. So, what now? Lets try to learn a new dance, shall we? Its a simple waltz that has but two steps and the cooperation of both parties. Step one: Understanding. The board must recognize and accept the publics dismay and indignation with its decision to stifle the right of the people to put forth questions, comments and opinions on the actions of its elected officials. So, too, must it grasp that it has encroached upon the law of unintended consequences. With a thinly veiled attempt to shush a very vocal minority, it has instead breached the trust of not only that minority, but the majority of its constituency whose voices, perhaps not often heard, have now been stifled as well. The public must understand, too, that, while not the most friendly or welcoming gesture, the board is within its rights to set both a time and a limit on participation at meetings, in accordance with the laws that govern it. Step two: Respect. Commissioners must respect the fact that they, too, are a constituency and remember that the next time they hope for their unfettered opinions to be heard on matters near and dear to their hearts. While hundreds, if not thousands, of issues must pass the desks of commissioners each year, some more memorable than others, each and every citizen has the right to speak his or her mind on them. Yes, it can be time-consuming, and yes, it can be aggravating. But the understood trust between the people and their government can not be forfeited for the benefit of shorter meetings and the silencing of those who speak too often. The public, likewise, must respect the board and acknowledge the burden carried by those elected to represent this county and its people. But more importantly, citizens need to respect their fellow citizen. Those whose voices are heard readily and loudly and often should step back and perhaps adopt the policy that less is indeed sometimes more. If they do, it is likely commissioners would be more inclinedto listen to what they have to say when they do say it. Common ground is easy to find when both sides look for it. Commissioners can and should repeal their decision and give back the public its voice. And the public should repay that kindness with courtesy and brevity. And remember, understanding and respect, like cheese and gravy, can make palatable a multitude of sins.

Kayak fishing could generate tourism dollarsIve enjoyed reading R.G. Schmidts recent Tight Lines series in the Outdoors section of theChronicleabout kayak fishing along the Nature Coast, as well as recent articles concerning efforts to develop tourism in Citrus County. While kayak fishing may never account for as much public use as manatee viewing or scalloping, I believe it has the potential to generate far more tourism dollars than currently occurs. I have become a kayak fishing addict since retiring to Citrus County in 2005, and regularly paddle the coastal area between the Withlacoochee and Chassahowitzka Rivers. I fish along beautiful, secluded mangrove shorelines, catching and releasing a variety of fish including seatrout, redfish and snook. Sneaking up on and casting to fish in a stealthy kayak, and getting pulled around by 10to 20pound redfish or snook for half an hour before landing them is an awesome experience. Frequent encounters with manatees, dolphins, sea turtles and other marine life add to the experience, as does getting up close to herons, egrets, ospreys and other shorebirds. Not having to trailer a boat in traffic, wait in long lines to launch at boat ramps, and put up with loud motorized boats and windy open water conditions are additional pluses. Being able to maneuver around fish attracting oyster bars instead of having to avoid them for fear of lower unit damage is another benefit. Ditto for being able to reach deeper fish-holding pools in extreme low water conditions. Being able to enjoy the beauty and solitude of the backcountry makes for a quality experience even on slow fishing days. Nearby rivers, bays and freshwater lakes provide additional opportunities to hook into lunker bass and panfish (keeping an eye out for those pesky gators). Many kayak anglers prefer catch-and-release methods, and participate in tournaments where winners are determined by photos of caught fish taken prior to release. Others enjoy fresh fish for lunch or dinner. Folks on limited budgets can get outfitted relatively inexpensively. Many fishing kayaks today offer increased roominess, stability and comfort (even for older codgers like me with back problems). Many are in the 40to 70-pound range, and can easily be dragged from a vehicle to the waters edge. Some can accommodate a second person, and most can be motorized for those wishing to extend their fishing range. When fishing is over for the day, theyre easily rinsed off and stored. Kayak fishing is one of the fastest-growing sports in the country. Kayak fishing clubs in Jacksonville, Tampa Bay and Orlando keep their members informed on the wheres and hows of fishing in their areas and provide opportunities for fishing gettogethers and tournaments. Each of their websites include classified sections, up-to-date forums for members to exchange information and a variety of other information. While many areas in Florida offer great kayak fishing opportunities, few provide the uncrowded, Old Florida feel that one can experience along the Nature Coast. With further improvement and development of kayak launch sites, and inclusion of related fishing opportunities in tourism websites and ecotourism materials, I believe that paddle fishing could attract anglers from around the state and beyond to the Nature Coast. Benefits of a well designed and promoted kayak fishery along the Nature Coast would accrue to local kayak dealers, kayak rental shops, fishing guides and numerous ancillary businesses. Gary Rankel HernandoWriter lost sight of GOP policyRobert Hagamans letter published Jan. 5 is a supreme example of what is so wrong with todays GOP. He made various comments that were written to appease only the most myopic Republican. We are not all drinking the Kool-Aid, nor are we all so closed minded that we cant see what has become of the GOP I have been a Republican for 40 years. But todays party is not the Republican Party I joined in 1974. Mr. Hagamans letter was written to spread his personal agenda and beliefs. He is entitled to them. But it most certainly does not represent what this Republican sees as the reality of the current GOP He refers to a letter written on Dec. 22. He states the writer knows nothing about the Republican Party philosophy. I contend that Mr. Hagaman has lost sight of the Republican Party philosophy. Mitt Romneys statement about the 47 percent of Americans speaks volumes about the current state of the GOP. And by the way, arent you embarrassed that Romney was the best the Republicans could come up with? I certainly am. He writes about his pervasive dislike of Democrats, saying a Democrat would not bother to familiarize him/herself with a group or a person before trying to define them. Isnt that exactly what is happening in his letter? He submits his view of birth control. He has the right to his beliefs, and I respect them. But to call someone who dares to disagree with his view an ultra-liberal is an example of the GOP arrogance today. No one should have the right to tell a woman what she must do with such a personal matter. He goes on to write that the health insurance program is a perfect example of Democrat failure. Granted, the Affordable Care Act has been somewhat of a fiasco, but how can you call it a failure? It could and probably would work, if Congress would get together to make it work. Instead, the GOP throws every banana peel they can find in its path. They have had decades to come up with something, but the insurance lobbies (among others) have spent mountains of money to prevent it. The GOP has occupied the White House for 26 of the last 45 years. Was there ever any kind of significant health care reform proposed during that time? Someone finally comes up with a plan, flawed that it is, but a plan. It passed all the legal hurdles. No matter if you oppose it or support it, it is now the law. Why not cross the aisle and work for the people instead of the party? It can be made to work if we remember we are Americans first and our party affiliation is a very distant second. And show the lobbyists the door. Both parties are 100 percent culpable. The main fault lies with the apathetic voters who blindly follow their party without being openminded (intelligent) enough to check the facts before they vote. We elected the most disliked and dysfunctional Congress in recent memory, perhaps in history. We let the problems we have occur right under our noses, Democrats and Republicans alike. Dont point at a person or political party and say they are the reason were in the shape we are in.

The Katy school district announced on its website that Seven Lakes High School was safely evacuated Monday morning after campus police learned of a perceived threat. A Harris County sheriffs office bomb squad responded. Officials with the district about 20 miles west of Houston said on the website that the potential explosive was later identified and that a student suspect is in custody. They did not elaborate. Students were evacuated to an enclosed area on the baseball and football fields. They were later released for the day and after-school activities were canceled.Plane that landed at wrong airport back in the airBRANSON, Mo.

Sharon laid to rest Associated PressIsraelis stand around the grave of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon Monday after his funeral near Sycamore Farm, Sharons residence in southern Israel. Nation bids farewell to former Israeli prime minister Associated PressJERUSALEM Ariel Sharon was laid to rest Monday at his ranch in southern Israel as the nation bid a final farewell to one of its most colorful and influential leaders a man venerated by supporters as a warrior and statesman but reviled in the Arab world as a war criminal. After Israeli politicians and international dignitaries honored Sharon, the military funeral carried a more personal tone, with Sharons two sons eulogizing their father as an inspiration for the nation. On a day full of warm eulogies, speakers made only passing references to the exploits that made him such a divisive figure. Sharon died on Saturday, eight years after a devastating stroke removed the prime minister from office and left him in a coma from which he never recovered. He was 85. His younger son, Gilad, reenacted his final moments: in a hospital room, with music playing, family members chatting and his grandchildren running about. And only the hero of the play is lying motionless, he said, pausing. I hold your hand and stroke your face, the face of my dying father. Beloved father, you have come home. With hundreds of officials and everyday Israelis on hand, Sharons other son, Omri, addressed his father a final time. Look around, and see the nation gathering around this hilltop. Look and see how they thank you for guarding them. How they appreciate you protecting them and leading them. How they love you and miss you and bow a head. You were worthy of such praise, he said. One of Israels greatest and most divisive figures, Sharon rose through the ranks of the military, moving into politics and overcoming scandal and controversy to become prime minister. He spent most of his life battling Arab enemies and promoting Jewish settlement on war-won lands. But in a surprising about-face, he led a historic withdrawal from the Gaza Strip in 2005, uprooting all soldiers and settlers from the territory after a 38-year presence in a move he said was necessary to ensure Israels security. His backers called him a hero, remembering his daring exploits that helped turn the tide of the 1973 Mideast war in Israels favor and, after becoming prime minister, his harsh crackdown that helped end a violent Palestinian uprising. His detractors held him responsible for years of bloodshed. They remember his role in a 1953 commando raid that killed 69 Arabs in the West Bank, and as the mastermind of Israels 1982 invasion of Lebanon where he became complicit in a massacre in the Sabra and Chatilla refugee camps by an Israeli-allied militia that killed hundreds of Palestinians. Even Israels withdrawal from Gaza is scorned as a unilateral act that left the beleaguered area doomed for failure. AK-47 designer Kalashnikov wrote penitent letterMOSCOW In a regretful letter penned a few months before his death, Mikhail Kalashnikov, the designer of the AK-47 assault rifle, asked the head of the Russian Orthodox Church if he was to blame for the deaths of those killed by his weapon. The Russian daily Izvestia on Monday published the letter, in which Kalashnikov, who died last month at 94, told Patriarch Kirill that he kept asking himself if he was responsible. The AK-47 is the worlds most popular firearm, with an estimated 100 million spread around the world. The pain in my soul is unbearable. I keep asking myself the same unsolvable question: If my assault rifle took peoples lives, it means that I, Mikhail Kalashnikov, ... son of a farmer and Orthodox Christian am responsible for peoples deaths, he said in the letter. The letter, which was sent in April, contrasted sharply with past statements by Kalashnikov, who had repeatedly said in interviews and public speeches that he created the weapon to protect his country and couldnt be blamed for other peoples action.Italian charged with killing Irishman in chess disputeDUBLIN An Italian man allegedly cut open his Dublin landlords chest and tried to eat his heart following a fight over a chess match.

Fords F-150 redesign talk of auto show Associated PressDETROIT Some call it a game-changer. Some just shake their heads. Either way, Fords new aluminumclad F-150 is such a radical departure from past pickup trucks that it dominated talk at the opening of the Detroit auto show. Ford Motor Co. unveiled the 2015 F-150, whose body is 97 percent aluminum, on Monday. The lighter material shaves as much as 700 pounds off the 5,000-pound truck, a revolutionary change for a vehicle known for its heft and an industry still reliant on steel. No other vehicle on the market contains this much aluminum. Its a landmark moment for the full-size pickup truck, said Jack Nerad, editorial director for Kelley Blue Book. The change is Fords response to small-business owners desire for a more fuel-efficient and nimble truck and stricter government requirements on fuel economy. It sprang from a challenge by Fords CEO to move beyond the traditional design for a full-size pickup. Youre either moving ahead and youre improving and youre making it more valuable and more useful to the customer or youre not, Chief Executive Alan Mulally told The Associated Press in a recent interview. But it remains to be seen if customers will accept the change. Trucks are put to such hard use. They take bangs and dings and a lot of hard use, Nerad said. Well see how the use of lightweight aluminum plays out in the field. New Nigeria law bans gay meetings Associated PressLAGOS, Nigeria A new law in Nigeria, signed by the president without announcement, has made it illegal for gay people to even hold a meeting. The Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act also criminalizes homosexual clubs, associations and organizations, with penalties of up to 14 years in jail. The act has drawn international condemnation from countries such as the United States and Britain. Some Nigerian gays already have fled the country because of intolerance of their sexual persuasion, and more are considering leaving, if the new law is enforced, human rights activist Olumide Makanjuola said recently. Nigerias law is not as draconian as a Ugandan bill passed by parliament last month which would punish aggravated homosexual acts with life in prison. It awaits the presidents signature. But Nigerias law reflects a highly religious and conservative society that considers homosexuality a deviation. Nigeria is one of 38 African countries about 70 percent of the continent that have laws persecuting gay people, according to Amnesty International. The Associated Press on Monday obtained a copy of the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act, which was signed by President Goodluck Jonathan and dated Jan. 7. It was unclear why the laws passage has been shrouded in secrecy. The copy obtained from the House of Representatives in Abuja, the Nigerian capital, showed it was signed by lawmakers and senators unanimously on Dec. 17, though no announcement was made. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday the United States is deeply concerned by a law that dangerously restricts freedom of assembly, association, and expression for all Nigerians. Former colonizer Britain said, The U.K. opposes any form of discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation. A statement from the spokesman for the British High Commission, traditionally not identified by name, said the law infringes upon fundamental rights of expression and association which are guaranteed by the Nigerian Constitution and by international agreements to which Nigeria is a party.

College basketball/ B2 NBA/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Tennis/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 B4 Lottery, TV/B3 NFL/B4 NHL/B4 Familiar foes spice up AFC, NFC title games. / B4 SPORTSSection BTUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Florida unveils new coaches, offensive plan Gators plan to install hurry-up offense Associated PressGAINESVILLE Florida coach Will Muschamp is in a considerably better mood these days. Maybe its his new assistants. Maybe its his new offensive scheme. Maybe its just a new year. After the programs worst season since 1979, Muschamp made significant changes and not just to his staff. Muschamp introduced three new coaches Monday offensive coordinator Kurt Roper, offensive line coach Mike Summers and special teams coordinator Coleman Hutzler and announced plans to install a hurry-up offensive scheme that will include spread elements. We needed more tempo, we needed to create more snaps, we needed to create more space plays, said Muschamp, who grew increasingly frustrated with every loss last season. I felt like being in the gun would help some of our personnel, and thats where were headed. The Gators lost their final seven games in 2013, finished 4-8 and missed a bowl game for the first time since 1990. The offense was the primary problem, finishing 113th in the nation in total yards. Muschamp responded by firing offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis less than 24 hours after the season ended. Special teams coordinator Jeff Choate resigned in December to take a similar position at Washington. Their replacements are tasked with helping Florida get back on track and in a hurry. Its unlikely that Muschamp, who is 21-16 in three seasons at Florida, will get more than a season to turn things around. So the Gators have to find some quick fixes to the offense, and going with an up-tempo scheme can be an equalizer. If you can play the game with some tempo and speed and you can play it in space, you can create as many 1-on-1 tackle opportunities as you can, said Roper, who left Duke to join Muschamp. If you can create a bunch of 1-on-1 tackle opportunities, then you have a chance to have positive yards, and positive yards keep you on the field. Our whole philosophy on offense is points per game. Its not yards. Its not going up and down the field. Its how many points we can get. Playing the game in space creates more opportunities to score points. Florida hasnt been the same offensively since 2007 Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow left school. The Gators ranked 82nd in total offense in 2010, 105th in 2011 and 103rd in 2012. Some believe its a talent issue; others insist its a talentdevelopment issue. Either way, Muschamp knows it has to improve. Philosophically, all Ive ever asked is to be balanced, Muschamp said. I feel like youve gotta be balanced in this league. Weve run the ball at times extremely well. ... We need to throw it better. Weve said that all along. We need to be more efficient in throwing the football and certainly looking Florida rules out Prather Rodriguez sues MLB, union to overturn drug ban No. 7 Gators without leading scorer tonight Associated PressGAINESVILLE Casey Prathers bruised right knee is improving just not quickly enough to play tonight. No. 7 Florida ruled out its leading scorer Monday, saying Prather wont play against Georgia. The senior forward is still dealing with pain and swelling, and coach Billy Donovan has no timetable for his return. He still has issues, Donovan said. Hes getting better. Hes progressing. When hell be available to play, I dont know. Prather, who is averaging 17 points a game this season and leads the Southeastern Conference in shooting at 62.4 percent, sat out Saturdays 84-82 overtime victory at Arkansas. Dorian Finney-Smith started in his place and finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds. Finney-Smith likely will replace Prather in the starting lineup again. It just means that other people need to step up, guard Scottie Wilbekin said. I know you guys have heard coach (Donovan) say all he needs is five guys to go out there, and we have the same mindset as a team. I wish he was going to be out there playing with us, but if hes not, then weve just got to go out with what weve got. And Im confident that we can win without him. The Gators (13-2, 2-0 SEC) have won 24 in a row at home, tying the school record set between March 2006 and November 2007. They have won 11 straight at home against the Bulldogs (8-6, 2-0). Florida also has won seven straight and 12 of 13, the lone loss a buzzer-beater at then-No. 12 UConn in early December. The 6-foot-6 Prather has been a big reason for the teams success. He also is averaging 5.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists in nearly 30 minutes a game. And hes one of the teams better defenders. Area girls soccer teams face stiff tests in first round of DistrictsJAMES BLEVINS CorrespondentThe Lecanto Panthers girls soccer team just wrapped up their regular season on Jan. 8 at home against the visiting Crystal River Pirates winning 4-1 and completing another intra-county sweep of local prep teams (for the second year in a row). But it didnt come easy, not after Lecanto lost a core contingent of its talented players at the beginning of the season due to disciplinary actions, and then lost All-Chronicledefender Lauryn Cole and scoring threat Jessica Allen to injury after only a few games. The two-time defending District 4A-4 champs are not precisely in the position theyd prefer to be in at the outset of the postseason and the road ahead will only get more challenging if they are to advance. Lecanto (11-8-1 overall, 4-4 district) is seeded third going into the five-school tournament that started Monday and must first deal with the No. 2 seed Vanguard Knights on Wednesday a team the Panthers have yet to beat this year after two meetings during the regular season. In 2013, Lecanto defeated the Springstead Eagles (now in District 3A7 with Citrus and Crystal River) in the district finals 1-0, and Ridgeview 3-2 in the regional quarterfinals, before bowing out in the regional semis against Fleming Island 3-0. If Lecanto has any hope of a threepeat as district champs, the Panthers will need county-leading goal scorer Stephanie Bandstra (21) and assistleading teammate Lexi Moore (10), along with their entire defensive line and midfield, to have big games on Wednesday. And it wouldnt hurt if Lecanto goalkeeper Megan Houpt had a shutout or two left in her, after seven during the regular season. The No. 1 seed Forest Wildcats play the winner of the game between No. 4 East Ridge Knights and No. 5 West Port Wolf Pack, who are hosting the tournament in Ocala. If Lecanto defeats Vanguard in its semifinal game it will play the winner of the Forest game on Friday in the finals. Citrus (10-10-2, 8-6-2) and Crystal River (4-13-2, 4-11-1) share District 3A-7 this year and find themselves seeded No. 5 and 6, respectively, going into the tournament. During their 2013 postseason campaign the Canes advanced to the regional semifinals (3A-6) before falling to eventual regional runner-up Nature Coast 3-0. Crystal River made it to the regional quarterfinals (2A-7) last year before making an early exit, losing in overtime to Keystone Heights 3-2. Both teams face top-tier opponents right off the bat today, as Citrus meets No. 4 seed Springstead at 6 p.m. in Brooksville (host Nature Coast High School) and Crystal River faces the No. 3 seed Fivay Falcons earlier that day at 2 p.m. Citrus tied Springstead once during the regular season on Oct. 28, while dropping a close 5-4 game to the Eagles on Dec. 12. Crystal River lost both regular season match-ups against Fivay: a 5-0 shutout on Nov. 6 and an 8-2 decision on Dec. 9. The No. 1 seed Hudson Cobras will face the winner of a Monday game between the No. 8 Hernando Leopards and the No. 9 Weeki Wachee Hornets today at 4 p.m., while the No. 2 Nature Coast Sharks battle with the No. 7 Central Bears at 8 p.m. to conclude the first round of the nineschool tournament. The semifinals are to be held on Wednesday, with start times to be determined, and the final will be contested Friday at 7 p.m. Lexi Moore of Lecanto, the county leader in assists, and the Panthers begin district play Wednesday against Vanguard.MATT PFIFFNER / Chronicle GIRLS DISTRICT SOCCER TOURNAMENTSToday District 3A-7 Tournament at Nature Coast 2 p.m. No. 6 Crystal River vs. No. 3 Fivay 6 p.m. No. 5 Citrus vs. No. 4 Springstead Wednesday, Jan. 15 District 4A-4 Tournament at West Port High School 5 p.m. No. 3 Lecanto vs. No. 2 Vanguard Associated PressNEW YORK Alex Rodriguez sued Major League Baseball and its players union Monday, seeking to overturn a season-long suspension imposed by an arbitrator who ruled there was clear and convincing evidence he used three banned substances and twice tried to obstruct the sports drug investigation. As part of the lawsuit filed in federal court in Manhattan, the New York Yankees third baseman made public Saturdays 33-page decision by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, who shortened a penalty originally set at 211 games last August by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig for violations of the sports drug agreement and labor contract. Horowitz, who technically chaired a three-man panel that included a representative of MLB and the union, trimmed the penalty to 162 games, plus all postseason games in 2014. While this length of suspension may be unprecedented for a MLB player, so is the misconduct he committed, Horowitz wrote. Rodriguez in his suit claimed the Major League Baseball Players Association completely abdicated its responsibility to Mr. Rodriguez to protect his rights and this inaction by MLBPA created a climate in which MLB felt free to trample on Rodriguezs confidentiality rights. Rodriguez asked for the court to find MLB violated its agreements with the union, that the union breached its duty to represent him and to throw out Horowitzs decision. The three-time AL MVP five years ago admitted using performance-enhancing drugs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has denied using them since. MLBs investigation of Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic, was sparked after the publication of documents last January by Miami New Times. Anthony Bosch, the clinics head, agreed in June to cooperate with MLBs investigation, and Rodriguezs lawyers attacked his credibility because of that agreement, which included Associated PressNew York Yankee Alex Rodriguez reacts after striking out Aug. 13, 2013.

The Mavericks won their third straight against sub-.500 teams since a blowout loss at San Antonio. Dallas now heads into a three-game stretch against Western Conference playoff contenders starting Wednesday at the Los Angeles Clippers. Nowitzki did most of his damage in the first half with 10 points, two nights after scoring 20 in the third quarter on his way to 40 against New Orleans. Jameer Nelson scored 21 and Glen Davis added 19 points and eight rebounds for the Magic, who got swept on a swing through five Western Conference cities and lost by an average of 20 points.Knicks 98, Suns 96, OTNEW YORK Carmelo Anthony had 29 points and 16 rebounds, and the New York Knicks held the Phoenix Suns without a field goal in overtime to win 98-96 for their fifth straight victory. Raymond Felton added 19 points for the Knicks (15-22), who climbed into a tie with Brooklyn for eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Goran Dragic had 28 points and eight rebounds for the Suns, who dropped their third straight. Raptors 116, Bucks 94TORONTO Kyle Lowry scored 23 points, Jonas Valanciunas had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and the Toronto Raptors beat Milwaukee 116-94 to hand the struggling Bucks their sixth straight loss. DeMar DeRozan added 19 points, Patrick Patterson 18 and John Salmons 10 as Toronto won for the eighth time in nine games. The Atlantic Division leaders snapped a fivegame home slide against the Bucks. The Raptors won their second straight over Milwaukee after losing the previous 10 meetings.Rockets 104, Celtics 92BOSTON Dwight Howard had 32 points and 10 rebounds, and the Houston Rockets beat Boston 104-92 to send the skidding Celtics to their ninth consecutive defeat. Jeremy Lin added 16 points and nine assists for Houston, and Chandler Parsons added 14 points after missing three games with a knee injury. Parsons is having a breakout season, averaging 17.5 points (on 51.7 percent shooting) and 5.4 rebounds. Avery Bradley had 24 points for the Celtics, on their longest losing streak since dropping a franchiserecord 18 straight games in 2007.Spurs 101, Pelicans 95NEW ORLEANS Tony Parker capped a 27-point outing with several clutch layups in the final minutes, and the San Antonio Spurs won their fifth straight game, 101-95 over the reeling New Orleans Pelicans. Tim Duncan scored 18 points before fouling out with 6:02 to go in what turned out to be a surprisingly tense contest. Manu Ginobili added 14 points, Kawhi Leonard 13 and Marco Belinelli 12 for San Antonio. Anthony Davis had 22 points and 11 rebounds for New Orleans.Wizards 102, Bulls 88CHICAGO John Wall and Nene had 19 points apiece, Trevor Ariza scored 16 and the Washington Wizards beat the Chicago Bulls 102-88.

No. 1 Huskies snap Baylors home win streak Associated PressWACO, Texas Breanna Stewart had 18 points and 11 rebounds as top-ranked Connecticut won 66-55 at No. 7 Baylor, ending the Lady Bears national-best 69-game home winning streak Monday night. In a matchup of the last two national champions, defending champ UConn (18-0) held on to win its closest game this season. The Huskies had beaten their first five ranked opponents by an average margin of 22 points, and nobody had finished within 17 of them. Baylor (14-2) hadnt lost at home since a 70-54 defeat to Texas in its regular-season home finale March 7, 2010. Senior starters Odyssey Sims, the national scoring leader, and Makenzie Robertson, the daughter of coach Kim Mulkey, had never lost a game in the Ferrell Center. The Huskies have two of the five longest home winning streaks in womens basketball, their record of 99 snapped two years ago and an earlier 69-game streak. UConn women remain on topConnecticut remains No. 1 in The Associated Press poll. The Huskies cruised in their two games this week, beating Houston and Temple. Notre Dame, Duke, Stanford and Louisville followed the unbeaten Huskies, with the first five teams unchanged. Maryland, Baylor, South Carolina, North Carolina and Kentucky round out the top 10. The Wildcats were one of 13 teams in the Top 25 last week that lost games. Rutgers, Vanderbilt and Texas A&M entered the poll in the final three spots, while Indiana, San Diego and Georgia dropped out.From wire reports Hoops hotbed schools stumble at start of ACC play Associated PressRALEIGH, N.C. Looks as if theres a dead end on Tobacco Road. Duke, North Carolina, N.C. State and Wake Forest entered the week a combined 3-9 in Atlantic Coast Conference play after losing on the same day for perhaps the first time in the storied history of this hoops hotbed. The Tar Heels (10-6, 0-3) have last place all to themselves. The Blue Devils, Wolfpack and Demon Deacons (each 1-2 in the ACC) are part of an eight-team tie for next-to-last. North Carolina coach Roy Williams said Monday that his team and Duke in particular really have been pretty doggone good and have stood the test of time. He wonders if this is a bad year or a bad month or a bad week or two bad games. Who knows? Preseason favorite Duke tumbled from No. 7 to No. 23 in two weeks after its worst start to ACC play since 2006-07. A 13-point loss at Clemson last week prompted Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski to say were not a good team right now. N.C. States 31-point loss to Virginia marked its worst loss in the 15-year history of PNC Arena. Meanwhile, Wake Forest has dropped both of its conference road games by at least 15 points apiece and is 1-26 under fourth-year coach Jeff Bzdelik on the road in ACC play. N.C. State coach Mark Gottfried was talking specifically about his team Monday, but he could have been discussing the rest of his instate rivals when he said we had a difficult day. Weve got to get ourselves back up. Part of the problem for each school has been inexperience. The only Duke starter who was in the program as recently as 2011-12 is point guard Quinn Cook. N.C. State has only three players back from last season. And Wake Forest has been in perpetual rebuilding mode since Bzdelik took over in 2010, with only one fourth-year scholarship senior on the roster for the second straight year. Even Duke theyve got young players, Gottfried said. People forget that (phenom Jabari) Parkers a freshman and those type of things. Im watching North Carolina and theyre playing young guys. Were playing young guys. So sometimes you can be very high and very low. No team has shown more inconsistency than North Carolina which has wins over three top-10-atthe-time teams in Kentucky, Louisville and Michigan State, and losses to Belmont, UAB and every ACC team theyve played so far. The Tar Heels also have been dealing with NCAA distractions, announcing last month that they wont pursue reinstatement for leading scorer P.J. Hairston after his rules violations included using rental vehicles tied to a felon and party promoter in Durham. Guard Leslie McDonald missed the first nine games for receiving improper benefits and North Carolina has lost four of its seven games since his return. The stat sheet points out obvious holes for each team. No ACC team shoots better or scores more than Duke but the Blue Devils simply havent been able to defend, ranking 13th in scoring defense and 14th in field goal percentage defense. Were a very young team and we get predicted to do something based on me being old, the 67-year-old Krzyzewski said after the Clemson loss. Thats the way it is. And we have to measure up to something we probably werent good enough to do to begin with. North Carolina is the ACCs top offensive rebounding team but the Tar Heels, the leagues worst team from the free-throw line, are 14th in rebounding defense and have lost five games by six or fewer points. We just need to get better in so many different areas, Williams said. Youre not going to just get your teeth cleaned. Youre going to go get some work done on every tooth. N.C. State ranks 14th in 3-point shooting and 13th in rebounding margin. Wake Forest is 14th in free-throw shooting, 12th in defending the 3-point line and last in rebounding defense. And everything came together last Saturday in a decidedly imperfect storm. At the same time North Carolina lost by 12 at Syracuse, Wake Forest fell by 15 points at Pittsburgh. Clemson used a strong second half to beat Duke 72-59 and the Wolfpack made it 0-for-4 on Tobacco Road with its 76-45 loss to Virginia. Another instance of the four schools losing on the same day couldnt be found. Wake Forests media guide doesnt list complete dates of games played before the 1950-51 season and N.C. States doesnt before 1946-47. If nothing else, all four wont lose on any day this week because theyre going to play each other. N.C. State visits Wake Forest on Wednesday night and plays at Duke on Saturday. Theres a lot of success with these programs, and its stood the test of time, Williams said. So my first inclination would be to say, Lets not bury us yet. Six newcomers to AP Top 25 hoops pollArizona and Syracuse remain No. 1 and 2 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for a sixth straight week and six newcomers joined the Top 25. The Wildcats (17-0) received 61 firstplace votes Monday from the 65member national media panel while the Orange (16-0) got the others. After 11 ranked teams lost at least one game, the changes started at No. 3 where Wisconsin moved up one spot to replace Ohio State, which lost two games and dropped to 11th. Michigan State was fourth followed by Wichita State, Villanova, Florida, Iowa State, Oklahoma State and San Diego State. No. 19 Cincinnati, No. 20 Creighton, No. 22 Pittsburgh, No. 24 Saint Louis, and Oklahoma and UCLA, which tied for 25th, all moved into the rankings this week, replacing Oregon, Missouri, Gonzaga, Illinois and Kansas State.From wire reports Associated PressNorth Carolinas head coach Roy Williams yells to his players Saturday against Syracuse in Syracuse, N.Y. The Tar Heels are in last place in the ACC with an 0-3 league record. Mens BasketballBRIEFS No. 2 Syracuse 69, Boston College 59BOSTON Trevor Cooney scored 21 points, Jerami Grant added 16 and No. 2 Syracuse fought off pesky Boston College for a 69-59 victory Monday night. C.J. Fair and Tyler Ennis each had 12 points for the Orange (17-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). Grant added eight rebounds for Syracuse, one of four unbeaten teams in Division I. Lonnie Jackson scored 18 points all on 3-pointers for the Eagles (5-12, 1-3), Ryan Anderson had 14 and Olivier Hanlan finished with 13 points and six assists. The Orange, who also started 2011-12 by winning their first 17 games, outrebounded Boston College 28-24, collecting half on the offensive glass, which helped them pull away for the win. BC went 9 for 21 from 3-point range.No. 15 Kansas 77, No. 8 Iowa St. 70AMES, Iowa Naadir Tharpe scored a career-high 23 points, freshman Andrew Wiggins had 17 points and 19 rebounds and No. 15 Kansas beat No. 8 Iowa State 77-70 for its third straight win to open Big 12 play. The Jayhawks (12-4, 3-0) handed the Cyclones their second consecutive loss after a 14-0 start. Kansas opened the second half with a 16-5 run and led the rest of the way. Joel Embiid finished with 16 points and five blocks for the Jayhawks, who outrebounded Iowa State 53-36 in perhaps their most impressive win of the season. DeAndre Kane, who sprained an ankle in the loss to Oklahoma on Saturday, had 21 points for Iowa State (14-2, 2-2), which lost for the 17th time in 18 games against Kansas.No. 23 Duke 69, Virginia 65DURHAM, N.C. Rasheed Sulaimon hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 18.8 seconds left and No. 23 Duke beat Virginia 69-65. Sulaimon finished with a season-high 21 points and Rodney Hood added 14 for the Blue Devils (13-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). Debuting at their lowest ranking since the last time they fell out of the AP Top 25 in February 2007, they let an 11-point lead with 3 1/2 minutes slip away before avoiding a third loss in four games. Malcolm Brogdon scored 17 points and Joe Harris added 15 for the Cavaliers (12-5, 3-1). They erased that deficit by scoring 11 consecutive points, then took their first lead of the game when Brogdons free throws with 36.5 seconds remaining made it 65-64. Amile Jefferson grabbed Hoods air ball and kicked it out to Sulaimon who was waiting alone in the left corner.From wire reports
SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE reimbursement for the costs of lawyers and security. The benefits accorded to Bosch under that arrangement did not involve inducements that the panel considers to be improper, Horowitz wrote. Horowitz concluded Rodriguez used testosterone, human growth hormone and Insulin-like growth factor-1 in 2010, 2011 and 2012 in violation of baseballs Joint Drug Agreement. Direct evidence of those violations was supplied by the testimony of Anthony Bosch and corroborated with excerpts from Boschs personal composition notebooks, BBMs (Blackberry messages) exchanged between Bosch and Rodriguez, and reasonable inferences drawn from the entire record of evidence, Horowitz wrote. Horowitz said Rodriguez was introduced to Bosch by A-Rod cousin Yuri Sucart, who knew Bosch through Jorge Oggi Velazquez. Contrary to the claim of Rodriguez, the challenges lodged to the credibility of Boschs testimony do not effectively refute or undermine the findings of JDA violations, the arbitrator wrote. Horowitz concluded MLB was justified in citing violations of the collective bargaining agreement because Rodriguez played an active role in inducing Bosch to issue his own public denial on Jan. 29 and attempted to induce Bosch to sign a sworn statement on May 31 saying he never supplied the player. Rodriguez did not testify in the grievance, walking out after Horowitz refused to order Selig to testify. In determining the length of the penalty, Horowitz cited a 2008 decision in a grievance involving Neifi Perez in which arbitrator Shyam Das ruled separate uses are subject to separate disciplines. He said under the discipline system for positive tests, Rodriguez would be subject to at least 150 games for three violations of 50 games. But Horowitz thought Seligs initial penalty was too severe. A suspension of one season satisfies the structures of just cause as commensurate with the severity of his violations, he wrote. Horowitz rejected Rodriguezs argument that the lack of a positive test was proof of innocence. It is recognized Rodriguez passed 11 drug tests administered by MLB from 2010 through 2012. The assertion that Rodriguez would have failed those tests had he consumed those PES as alleged is not persuasive. As advanced as MLBs program has become, no drug-testing program will catch every player, Horowitz wrote. In Seligs notice of discipline to Rodriguez on Aug. 5, he said MLB actively is investigating allegations he received banned substances in 2009 from Dr. Anthony Galea, who pleaded guilty in 2011 to a federal charge of bringing unapproved drugs into the United States from Canada. forward to that progress. The Gators were decimated by injuries last year, losing quarterback Jeff Driskel, running back Matt Jones, receiver Andre Debose and right tackle Chaz Green either before or early in the season. Driskel broke his right leg against Tennessee in September and should be ready for spring practice in March. Debose will be non-contact in spring while continuing to recover from reconstructive knee surgery. Green (torn labrum) should be full speed. Jones, meanwhile, might be sidelined a while. Muschamp said Jones had a completely torn meniscus in his left knee and will need a second surgery to repair the damage. Its a little more serious than a regular (torn) meniscus, Muschamp said. He will miss spring. We feel like hell be ready to go for summer workouts. With all the changes taking place, there are no guaranteed starters on the roster. Every positions open. Every position, Muschamp said. When you go 4-8, its all open. And it often leads to changes. Roper, Summers and Hutzler agreed to join Muschamp in Gainesville despite speculation that it could be a one-and-done situation if the Gators dont make a significant turnaround over the next 10 months. So why take that chance? There are jobs out there when you start out in coaching and look at and think this is where Id love to be someday, Summers said. Florida has always been that for me. I grew up in Kentucky, grew up in SEC country and have always looked at Florida from the outside wishing I could be on the correct sideline. ... The reputation of this program is strong. Ive been doing it long enough to know that every program has ebbs and flows, but this foundation and the reputation of this program will always be strong. The things Ive seen in the short time that Ive been here make me encouraged that were going to get right back to that point.

Conscious of the time and the temperature, former No. 1-ranked Caroline Wozniacki and No. 11 Simona Halep raced to straight-set wins in their first-round matches on the other show courts. Second-ranked Azarenka had a tougher time on Rod Laver Arena against Larsson, who twice had chances to serve for the first set but lost it in a tiebreaker. Yeah it was a tough set first. The match was going to be tricky ... the weather was not helping, Azarenka said. I had to play a little bit and find my rhythm. Both players had trouble holding serve, with a combined six service breaks in 66 minutes leading into the tiebreaker. No. 91-ranked Larsson was taking big cuts with her ground strokes and forcing Azarenka to defend. But the twotime defending champion started getting on top in the second set and didnt drop serve again. Both players draped bags of ice over their necks and shoulders and sat under covered seats in the changeovers. They retreated into the shade at the back of the courts between points. Temperatures hit 40 Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) early on the second afternoon of the tournament and was expected to rise. A hot, gusty breeze swirled across the venue. Spectators on outside courts covered their heads and shoulders with damp towels to cool off. No. 13 John Isner, the only seeded American man in the draw, retired after losing the first two sets 6-2, 7-6 (6) against Martin Klizan. He called for the trainer after the tiebreaker, tapped his racket on the ground three times while deliberating whether to go back out, and only played on for a few minutes in the third set. Tournament officials said he retired with a foot injury Isner won the title last weekend at Auckland, where he was playing with an injured right ankle. Wozniacki had a 6-0, 6-2 win over Lourdes Dominguez Lino in her first Grand Slam match since her New Years Eve engagement to golfer Rory McIlroy, doing everything she could to keep cool. Three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic improved his winning streak at Melbourne Park to 22 matches with a routine win over Lukas Lacko of Slovakia. Roger Federer kept his cool on a scorching second day at the Australian Open, starting his record 57th consecutive Grand Slam tournament with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 victory in his first match with Stefan Edberg as a coach. Federer, who joked about getting the better of childhood hero Edberg in the warm-up, said it was steamy but actually, it's not crazy. I'm feeling OK right now.
B4TUESDAY, JANUARY14, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Brady-Manning, 49ers-Seahawks spice up title games Associated PressFamiliar foes. Rivalry showdowns. Talk about a couple of juicy titlegame tussles. Its Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady Round 15 in the AFC championship game next Sunday, while the San Francisco 49ers square off against the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC title bout. Yep, here we go again. With a Super Bowl trip on the line. Its the Broncos versus the Patriots and certainly Tom and I have played against each other a lot, Manning said, but when you get to the AFC championship, its about two good teams that have been through a lot to get there. Manning helped lead Denver past the San Diego Chargers 24-17 on Sunday, setting up another meeting with Brady and New England, which beat Indianapolis 43-22 on Saturday night. The Broncos (14-3) opened as 6 1/2-point favorites for the game at Denver. Thats two of the greats, Denver wide receiver Eric Decker said. Its going to be talked about a lot throughout the week. Manning and Brady have squared off 14 times throughout their careers, with the Patriots quarterback holding a 10-4 edge in the head-to-head matchup, including a 34-31 overtime victory in November. They each have a win against the other in the AFC championship game: Brady in the 2003 playoffs and Manning in the 2006 postseason with Indianapolis. And the winner went on to win the Super Bowl each time. But, its not necessarily the same old story this time around. Both the Broncos and Patriots have been winning with balanced offenses, relying not only on the strong arms of their record-breaking quarterbacks but also on their running games. Manning was 25 of 36 for 230 yards and two TDs, but the Broncos controlled the clock on the ground. After gaining just 18 yards 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. The Chargers rallied to get within a score late, but Manning completed a pair of key third-down passes in the final minutes to prevent San Diego from getting a final chance. Theyre a great team, they had a big win (Saturday) night, Manning said of the Patriots. Were going to enjoy this one tonight, start to work on them tomorrow and I know itll be a heck of a game. At Foxborough, Mass., LeGarrette Blount carried the Patriots (13-4) to their third straight AFC title game with four touchdown runs against the Colts. Stevan Ridley added two rushing scores, giving New England six TDs and none by Brady. The way our defense is getting the ball for us and, really, what weve done the last three or four weeks (with) the running game has just been awesome, Brady said. Hopefully, we can do it next week, too. In the NFC, the 49ers and Seahawks are all set to play in the latest chapter in one of the NFLs budding and bitter rivalries. The Seahawks (14-3) opened as 3-point favorites for the game at Seattle against 49ers (14-4), who defeated the Carolina Panthers 23-10 on Sunday. On Saturday, Marshawn Lynch ran for a franchise playoff-record 140 yards and two touchdowns and Seattles defense flustered Drew Brees and New Orleans in a 23-15 victory. The top-seeded Seahawks advanced to the NFC title game for the second time, and first since the 2005 playoffs. We havent done anything yet, quarterback Russell Wilson said. Thats our goal. We have 60 minutes of football left. San Francisco, which lost last year to Baltimore, is looking for a return trip to the Super Bowl. And lots of hard hits and plenty of jawing might be expected in this latest matchup with the Seahawks. I think were the two teams everyone was looking at from the beginning, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said. Its going to be a knockdown, drag-out game. Count on it. The previous few games between the NFC West rivals have been full of contempt, with shoving, pushing and arguing spicing things up. Even the coaches dont care for each other. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh have been rivals dating to their days as opponents in the old Pac-10. In 2009, after Harbaughs Stanford team ran up the score on Carrolls Southern California squad in a 55-21 rout, the two met at midfield and an annoyed Carroll barked, Whats your deal? Thats carried over to the NFL and it might get ramped up again during the week. Were healthy, were a great team and were willing to do whatever it takes to get that ring, 49ers running back Frank Gore said. Were playing great ball. Good thing, since the 49ers have committed seven turnovers and been outscored 71-16 in their past two trips to Seattle, including a 29-3 Week 2 loss in September. Were a different team than we were the first time we played them up there, Kaepernick insisted. The 49ers will get a chance to prove that next weekend. At Seattle, Steven Hauschka kicked three field goals in blustery conditions, and Lynch capped the victory with a 31-yard scoring run with 2:40 left that Carroll celebrated by jumping into offensive line coach Tom Cables arms. It feels awesome, fullback Michael Robinson said, but this doesnt mean anything if we dont win next week. Lightning suffer tough loss in closing minutes Associated PressNew England quarterback Tom Brady celebrates a touchdown Saturday against the Indianapolis Colts in Foxborough, Mass. Brady is after a fourth Super Bowl title, but will have to get past long-time rival Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos this weekend to have a chance. SPORTS BRIEFSTitans hire Ken WhisenhuntNASHVILLE, Tenn. The Tennessee Titans have wrapped up their coaching search by hiring San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt as their new head coach. Titans president and CEO Tommy Smith called the hiring a big day in announcing the hiring Monday. Smith said he looks forward to seeing Whisenhunts vision of building the Titans into a consistent winner a reality. Smith said Whisenhunt has a history of building successful offenses and noted the coach took Arizona to a Super Bowl. The Titans flew to San Diego on Friday and interviewed Whisenhunt, who started his coaching career in Nashville at Vanderbilt. He was the fourth person interviewed by the Titans, who fired Mike Munchak on Jan. 4.Cristiano Ronaldo wins FIFA best player awardZURICH Cristiano Ronaldo has won the FIFA Ballon dOr award for 2013, ending Lionel Messis fouryear run as the worlds best player. Ronaldo scored 69 goals for Real Madrid and Portugal last year, and his stunning hat trick against Sweden in a decisive World Cup playoff was perhaps the defining individual performance. He beat out Barcelonas Messi and France winger Franck Ribery, who helped Bayern Munich to a sweep of major titles.Texas regents OK Strong contractAUSTIN, Texas University of Texas regents have approved new football coach Charlie Strongs fiveyear contract worth more than $25 million. Strong will be paid $5 million in the first year, with an annual $100,000 raise for the coach chosen to succeed Mack Brown. The regents met by phone Monday and approved the contract by a unanimous vote. Strong spent the last four years at Louisville and will be the first AfricanAmerican head coach of a Longhorns mens team. He went 23-3 the last two seasons at Louisville, and was introduced as Texas new coach Jan. 6. Brown spent 16 seasons at Texas and won the 2005 national championship. He resigned in December.LSU RB Jeremy Hill turning proBATON ROUGE, La. LSUs top rusher and receiver are entering the NFL draft, along with one of the Tigers starting offensive linemen. In separate announcements Monday, sophomore running back Jeremy Hill, junior receiver Jarvis Landry and sophomore right guard Trai Turner have confirmed their intentions to turn pro. Hill has played two seasons at LSU and was the Tigers leading rusher each season. He rushed for 1,401 yards and 16 touchdowns this season. Landry was expected to turn pro after racking up 1,193 yards receiving and catching 10 touchdowns in his third season. Turner has started at right guard since the middle of 2012, his redshirt freshman year, and leaves with two years of eligibility left.Robinsons award sells for $402,000NEW YORK Jackie Robinsons 1947 Rookie of the Year award for the season he broke baseballs color barrier has sold for $401,968. Lelands auction house said Monday that Robinsons trophy he won with the Brooklyn Dodgers was sold to an anonymous buyer on Jan. 10. The award came with a letter from Robinsons widow Rachel. Also sold was the jersey worn by Christian Laettner when he made a lastsecond shot to lift Duke over Kentucky in the 1992 NCAA tournament. The jersey went for $119,500. A rare Honus Wagner baseball card went for $657,250. The 1997 World Series ring won by Marlins pitcher Livan Hernandez was sold for almost $19,000.Former Iowa DC Norm Parker diesDES MOINES, Iowa Former Iowa defensive coordinator Norm Parker has died. He was 72. School spokesman Steve Roe told The Associated Press that Parker died early Monday. Parker began his college coaching career in 1968. He made stops at Wake Forest, Minnesota, Illinois, East Carolina, Michigan State and Vanderbilt. He spent his last 13 seasons at Iowa, where he developed a reputation as one of the countrys top coordinators. The Hawkeyes were often built around Parkers fundamentally sound defenses. The Hawkeyes finished in the top 10 nationally in scoring defense four times under Parker, who retired following the 2011 season. Parker was born in Hazel Park, Mich., and played at Eastern Michigan.From wire reports Letestus late power play goal lifts Columbus Associated PressCOLUMBUS, Ohio Mark Letestu redirected Jack Johnsons shot from the point with 2:38 left, lifting the Columbus Blue Jackets past the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 on Monday night. It was the Blue Jackets season-high fourth win in a row. Nathan Horton scored his 200th NHL goal, also on the power play, and Ryan Johansen had a goal for Columbus, which is 5-1 in the new year. Sergei Bobrovsky had 26 saves. Alex Killorn and Victor Hedman had goals for Tampa Bay, and Anders Lindback stopped 25 shots. Tampa Bay had been 17-1 when leading after two periods. The Blue Jackets had a man advantage for the sixth time after Tyler Johnson was called for hooking with 3:28 remaining. Just 50 seconds later, James Wisniewski fed Johnson for a hard shot that Letestu deflected past Lindback through heavy traffic in front.Flames 2, Hurricanes 0RALEIGH, N.C. Karri Ramo made 22 saves in his first NHL shutout, and Mikael Backlund and Sean Monahan provided the offense in the Calgary Flames 2-0 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. The Flames snapped a threegame losing streak and handed the Hurricanes their second straight shutout defeat. Backland scored his seventh goal of the season for the Flames, who notched their second power-play tally in 26 chances. Monahan scored his 13th goal midway through the third period to add some insurance. Ramo improved to 8-8-3 as the Flames swept the two-game season games from Carolina. Jets 5, Coyotes 1WINNIPEG, Manitoba The Winnipeg Jets found the energy they have lacked for weeks and made new coach Paul Maurice a winner in his debut behind the bench by routing the Phoenix Coyotes 5-1. Olli Jokinen, Eric ODell, Blake Wheeler, Michael Frolik and Devin Setoguchi scored for the Jets (20-23-5), who held a 38-19 shots advantage. Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored for Phoenix (21-15-9), but that was the only shot that got past goalie Ondrej Pavelec. Maurice got his first cheer during the national anthem when his face showed on the scoreboard. He took over after Claude Noel was fired on Sunday.

HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, JANUARY 14, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:Learn about Floridafriendly landscaping/ C7 The disease is more prevalent than you might think. According to the World Health Organization, its the second leading cause of blindness worldwideincluding more than 120,000 Americans and accounts for between 9 perent and 12 percent of all cases of blindness in this country. In financial terms, the estimated cost to the U.S. government is more than $1.5 billion per year, including Social Security benefit, lost income tax revenue and health care costs, according to the National Eye Institute. Often overlooked, glaucoma starts as loss of peripheral vision, and according to the Homosassa Eye Clinics Facebook page people sometimes will unconsciously compensate for this by turning their head. The most common form of glaucoma is called openangle glaucoma, and occurs when a drainage angle in the eye becomes blocked, leading to fluid buildup, which causes increased pressure that can damage the optic nerve. The condition can lead to permanent blindness if left unchecked. Other less common forms of glaucoma exist as well. They include lowor normal-tension glaucoma, in which optic nerve damage occurs without the elevated pressure which causes it in the more common form of the disease; angle-closure glaucoma, in which part of the iris blocks the drainage angle and causes the damaging pressure increase; congenital glaucoma, which affected children are born with and can often It seems like theres an awareness month for everything these days, from fungal infections to foot odor. But as anyone with a chronic health issue knows, awareness is important, both for increased research funding and for social support. January is Glaucoma Awareness Month. be effectively halted by surgery; and secondary glaucomas, which can develop as complications resulting from other medical conditions, such as poorly controlled diabetes or high blood pressure. There is no cure for glaucoma, but with treatment, remaining vision can be preserved. Common early treatments include eye drops or pills designed to relieve the pressure caused by excess fluid. A laser procedure called laser trabeculoplasty produces more immediate relief of pressure by draining fluid from the eye. Vision lost due to the disease cannot be restored, but effective treatment can avoid further vision loss. It is therefore important to visit an eye doctor at least once a year for a comprehensive eye examination, particularly if you have noticed any loss of peripheral vision. A comprehensive exam includes a check of peripheral vision; eye dilation; measurement of the pressure inside the eye; and measurement of the thickness of the cornea, as well as the familiar chart-reading to test vision at various distances. It is even more imperative to participate in yearly testing if you are a member of a higher-risk group, such as people older than 60, people of African-American and Mexican-American heritage, and people with a family history of glaucoma. However, the disease can affect anyone, and remember vision lost to glaucoma cant be restored. Be proactive, get yearly checkups, and keep on seein.

C2TUESDAY, JANUARY14, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Reducing your risk of developing breast cancer Breast cancer is the commonest cancer in woman. Every year, almost 300,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Fortunately, with modern advances in medicine, fewer and fewer women are dying due to breast cancer every year. Still, every woman would like to reduce her risk of breast cancer. What medicine can you take to reduce your risk of breast cancer? Until now, the FDA has approved two drugs for this. That is Tamoxifen and Raloxifene or Evista. Both have pros and cons. One risk, which scares lots of patients, is a small, but definite increased risk of uterine cancer with these drugs. This is rare and when it happens, it is discovered early and so it is curable. In spite of this, it is scary. In December, there was a large annual breast cancer conference in San Antonio, Texas. There were many exciting papers presented there. I am going to talk about one such paper. Anastrozole cut the incidence of breast cancer in half among high-risk postmenopausal women who took it for five years, researchers announced in the first results of the International Breast Cancer Intervention Study II (IBIS-II) trial. The trial included 3,864 postmenopausal women aged 40 to 70 years who were considered high risk for developing breast cancer because of family history, atypia/lobular carcinoma in situ, or breast density. The women were randomly assigned to receive either Anastrozole 1 mg daily (n = 1920) or matching placebo (n = 1944). The analysis showed a 50 percent reduction in all invasive disease. After follow-up of five years, 2 percent of women in the anastrozole group and 4 percent in the placebo group had developed breast cancer. The important part of the study is, Anastrozole does not cause cancer of the uterus and it did not significantly increase the risk of clots in the legs or lungs. Its main side effect is on the bones and that should be followed. A negative of the study is that follow-up is short, only five years. Longer followup may change the results. Still, it reduced high grade and so considered more aggressive breast cancer. You need to know the contrarian view too. The majority of the cancers detected in IBIS-II were found through screening, meaning they were low-risk, Dr. Cameron said, The chance of dying of a screen-detected cancer is considerably less than dying of a symptomatic cancer, so it looks as if anastrozole is preventing curable cancers. What we dont know is how many premature deaths its preventing. In short, if you have a high risk of developing breast cancer, this is another drug to consider. It is FDA approved for treatment of breast cancer, it is generic and so inexpensive. It is not yet FDA approved for prevention of breast cancer.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Last week, we discussed an overview of pain management in cancer patients. The issue of good pain control is important in many cancer patients, not only those whose disease has spread to other sites such as the bones, but also in those who experience pain at the primary site of their tumor. Many different things can cause pain, and today we will discuss these causes. One of the more common causes of pain is secondary to compression or invasion of the nerves in the site of the tumor. This is extremely common when tumors arise in the upper portions of the lungs or in the pelvis. It can also be seen in abdominal tumors. It is important to identify this as a cause of the pain as soon as possible so that treatment may be initiated rapidly before permanent damage occurs to the nerve. Another cause of pain commonly seen is that associated with spread of the tumor to other parts of the body. Lung, prostate and breast cancer, in advanced stages, can spread to the various bones of the skeletal system. While other cancers can do the same, these three are most commonly seen. Through diagnostic X-ray studies such as regular X-rays, bone scans and possibly computed tomography (CT) scans, the areas of the skeletal system in question can be evaluated to look for metastatic cancer. Depending upon many factors, treatment can then be initiated with radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy or possibly surgery. Pain can also develop secondary to nerve damage from treatment. This can be seen after surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. Today, the treatment of most cancers is very aggressive. This approach can increase the risks of complications with regard to the nerves of the body. Often, combinations of treatment, such as radiation therapy and chemotherapy, are utilized in concert to decrease the risk of complications while maintaining or improving the chance of a cure. This type of treatment-induced pain may not develop for several weeks or months after the therapy and can often be associated with other strange sensations on top of the pain. Occasionally, pain can be elicited in these areas with only a mild touch and this type of pain does not typically respond to standard forms of pain management as well as other types of pain do. Finally, pain can be caused by the treatment of a cancer. All three major cancer treatment modalities, surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy certainly have the ability to produce acute pain associated with their treatment. Generally speaking, the complications are associated with active cancer therapy and are expected to decline over time as the patient finishes treatment and the healing process proceeds. Depending upon the location and cause of the pain, various treatment options exist. Most patients who experience this pain will gradually improve and become pain free, however, a small number of patients may have persistent pain. That is an overview of some of the causes of pain. Next week we will discuss the treatment of pain, starting with medications available over the counter.Dr. C.

Q:My wife, Cathy, was told that one of her lower back molars needed to be pulled. She is 70 years old and on Fosamax for osteoporosis. Our dentist for many years recommended that she see a local oral surgeon. It was recommended to get lab work done to see how much of the Fosamax is in her system. The consult with x-ray was $155. He wants to drill her tooth out and install a titanium stud. His cost for that will be an additional $4,300 and that does not include the cap/tooth. My guess is that the cap alone will cost between $1,000 and $1,200. He also wants another lab work done prior to drilling out the tooth; their reasoning is that the Fosamax will stop the bone growth after the stud is in place and the bone will not grow around it. Im facing a total cost of around $6,000 for the one back tooth. We cannot afford that kind of money as we both are in our 70s and living on social security. The dentist told her that she wont be able to chew because without a tooth, the top teeth will not have anything to mash down on. Myself, Id have it pulled and not do anything, but my wife is concerned and Im looking for an alternative. I understand that without seeing the x-rays its difficult to make any decisions. Just to pull the tooth, we were given a price of $595; $345 for deep sedation/general anesthesia first 30 minutes and $250 to surgically remove tooth No. 30. I remember the time when you went to the dentist and he pulled the tooth for $3, packed it with cotton and sent you on your way. A: This is a great question. One that many people have had in the past. Since you said this is one of her back molars and you called it tooth number 30, I am going to assume that she still has the second molar, tooth number 31. For the rest of the readers of this column please realize that the tooth in question is the first molar. There are two other molars behind this one, tooth numbers 31 and 32. Number 32 is a third molar that I am going to assume is missing. The reason all of this is so important is that with another tooth present behind the one in question, there is the possibility of making a fixed bridge to replace the tooth after it is removed. For the sake of simplicity, I am also going to assume that the tooth cannot be restored. As ones dentist, it is our responsibility to explain what is going on and give you all of your options. Additionally, we need to answer all of your questions, eventually allowing you to make an informed choice on your care. I take this very seriously. Since there is a tooth present behind the one that needs removal you should know that one of your choices is to have a permanent bridge cemented from the tooth in front of the space to the one behind the space. The decision to use this as the treatment of choice usually involves whether or not those adjacent teeth are in need of repair themselves or whether they are natural teeth with no restorations at all. If they are in need of repair I tend to suggest a bridge. If they are teeth with no need for repair, an implant might be a better choice. If you have any other teeth missing, the use of a removable partial denture might be in order. I tend to shy away from this option if it will be replacing only one tooth. Lastly, you need to remember that removal without replacement is also an option. Though it is far from ideal, it is better to remove a diseased tooth and leave it missing than to leave it in place for it to become an emergency some day. Incidentally, the way the oral surgeon is handling the removal is 100 percent correct. Any other way can lead to dire circumstances. All people have their own set of circumstances with which to make decisions in all areas of life. For some, money may be the primary issue. For others, it could be how involved the care or surgery is. And others may be concerned about time. My point is that between you, your wife and your dentist, I know the right choice is out there. You may just need a bit more information. I hope my thoughts have helped. Best of luck to your wife.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S. Sun-coast Blvd., Homosassa, FL 34446 or email them to him at info@MasterpieceDental Studio.com. Over the years covering the emergency room, I have been called to deal with human and animal bites. Both of them are difficult, but you might be surprised at which one would be the worst as far as healing and infection goes. It is estimated that 5-6 million Americans sustain a bite by either animal or human every year. Dog bites alone account for 1 percent of all emergency room visits. Of animal bites, dogs account for about 80 percent, cats for about 15 percent and the remainder are wild animal encounters. For the infection rate, the opposite is true. Cat bites are more likely to get infected. They have about an 80 percent infection rate where dogs are less than 20 percent. Human bites, which occur from aggressive activities such as sports, fights and sexual activity account, for far fewer visits, but nearly half of those end up infected and there is the concern for issues such as HIV and hepatitis that can be transmitted in the course of these injuries. Rabies, which was a significant problem in the past, is now controlled with vaccines and as a result, rabies occurs 90 percent of the time with wild animals, such as raccoons, skunks, bats, foxes and rarely with domesticated animals. When it comes to human bites, as you can imagine, this most commonly occurs in males, and interestingly enough happens most commonly in the head and neck area. We all remember the Mike Tyson/Holyfield fight. When it comes to female patients, bite sites change and are most commonly breast, genitalia, legs and arms. Between human and animal bites, nearly half of all the people in the United States will be bitten at some point in time in their life. Only about 25 percent will need true medical attention because the injuries are usually very mild. Believe it or not, there is even a peak incidence of bite injuries that includes spring and summertime, as well as on weekend periods. Easy to understand, animals mate and have young during the spring and summer period and are more prone to be aggressive and weekends are leisure time for humans and that is when most mischief occurs when they are not busy at work. Most simple wounds can be cleaned and antibiotic topical products can be applied and simple Band-aids or dressings, but in some instances a visit to the ER followed by oral antibiotics may be recommended and in rare cases, hospitalization and use of intravenous antibiotics are necessary to increase chance of postinjury healing. When bite injuries are serious, they are sometimes not stitched but left open. As ugly as that might be, that is the best thing to do because closing off and walling off an infection could lead to more problems afterward. A cosmetic revision procedure can always be done once things have settled down and the infection risk is gone.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JANUARY14, 2014 C3 Learning the ABCs of your food labels Making informed food choices is the key to controlling weight, maintaining a healthy body and keeping your immune system strong. Knowing how to read the labels on packaged foods will benefit you and your loved ones for the rest of your lives. Foods that come in bottles, packages, and boxes often contain added sugars, salt and fats to make them taste good, and preservatives to keep them fresh. They may also contain added nutrients, such as vitamins and fiber. Without being aware of it, you can easily consume far more sugar, salt or fat then you intended to. Nutrition Facts labels may look bewildering, but with a few tips you can learn to scan them quickly and decide whether to buy a food and how much of it to eat. Practice at home with cans, bottles and packages from your pantry and refrigerator. When you are familiar with the nutrition facts for the foods you enjoy every day, it will be easy to compare other foods in the supermarket. Do not be deceived by words like fruit, all natural, whole grain, and glutenfree in the product name or on the front of the package. The truth is on the nutrition facts panel on the back of the package. Serving size The top of the nutrition facts panel tells you the serving size. The information on the nutrition facts label is for a single serving. For example, when the wrapping on a candy bar says it has 140 calories, but there are two servings in the package, you will be consuming 280 calories if you eat the whole candy bar. Calories Beneath the serving size is the amount of calories in one serving, and the amount of calories from fat. In general, 40 calories is low, 100 calories is moderate, and 400 calories is high for a single serving of food. If the food has more than 20 fat calories for each 100 total calories, the food is high in fat. Nutrients to limit The next section contains information about fats, carbohydrates, cholesterol, sodium, and sugar nutrients that you should limit to maintain good health. Nutrients to add Below that is information about nutrients that you probably need to add to your daily diet, such as protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. To the right of each nutrient, a percentage shows how much of an average persons daily dietary requirements is met by one serving of the food. Knowledge is power. When you understand how to read nutrition labels, you can avoid foods that are too high in fat, salt, and sugar, and plan healthy meals and snacks. If you buy yourself a calorie-rich treat, you will know how to compensate by eating fewer calories the rest of the day. And when you see just how many calories you are about to devour, you might lose your appetite for that candy!

WEEKLYContinued from Page C5 SUPPORTContinued from Page C5 Swedish doctors transplant wombs into 9 women Associated PressSTOCKHOLM Nine women in Sweden have successfully received transplanted wombs donated from relatives in an experimental procedure that has raised some ethical concerns. The women will soon try to become pregnant with their new wombs, the doctor in charge of the pioneering project has revealed. The women were born without a uterus or had it removed because of cervical cancer. Most are in their 30s and are part of the first major experiment to test whether its possible to transplant wombs into women so they can give birth to their own children. In many European countries, including Sweden, using a surrogate to carry a pregnancy isnt allowed. Life-saving transplants of organs such as hearts, livers and kidneys have been done for decades and doctors are increasingly transplanting hands, faces and other body parts to improve patients quality of life. Womb transplants the first ones intended to be temporary, just to allow childbearing push that frontier even farther and raise some new concerns. There have been two previous attempts to transplant a womb in Turkey and Saudi Arabia but both failed to produce babies. Scientists in Britain, Hungary and elsewhere are also planning similar operations but the efforts in Sweden are the most advanced. This is a new kind of surgery, Dr. Mats Brannstrom told The Associated Press in an interview from Goteborg. We have no textbook to look at. Brannstrom, chair of the obstetrics and gynecology department at the University of Gothenburg, is leading the initiative. Next month, he and colleagues will run the firstever workshop on how to perform womb transplants and they plan to publish a scientific report on their efforts soon. Some experts have raised concerns about whether its ethical to use live donors for an experimental procedure that doesnt save lives. But John Harris, a bioethics expert at the University of Manchester, didnt see a problem with that as long as donors are fully informed. He said donating kidneys isnt necessarily life-saving, yet is widely promoted. Brannstrom said the nine womb recipients are doing well. Many already had their periods six weeks after the transplants, an early sign that the wombs are healthy and functioning. One woman had an infection in her newly received uterus and others had some minor rejection episodes, but none of the recipients or donors needed intensive care after the surgery, Brannstrom said. All left the hospital within days. Associated PressSwedish research team members practice before the operations to transplant wombs at the Sahlgrenska Hospital in Goteborg, Sweden. Nine women in Sweden have successfully received transplanted wombs donated from relatives and will soon try to become pregnant, the doctor in charge of the pioneering project has revealed. 000H3QE Time To Think About Taxes...

NEWS NOTES Once again, the community received yet another gift of The Singing Christmas Tree from the Crystal River First Baptist Church last month. Following a welcome from Pastor Tim Lantzy, the Music Ministry presentation began. As the lights dimmed, the choir began to ascend the towering tree in the church sanctuary. With a resounding trumpet solo, the brilliant multi-colored light display in dazzling hues heralded the long-awaited event: Christmas Changes Everything production. Joy to the World opened the presentation directed by the Rev. Gary Kirksey, director of music. Tracey Kirksey and Ruth Young were the drama coordinators. The choir sang Christmas Together and offered a traditional winter medley including the familiar Sleigh Ride, Jingle Bells and Ring Out the Bells, Its the Holiday Season, featuring soloists Cathy Helburg and Sandy Charlton. The first dramatic scene depicted a family getting ready for Christmas while the choir sang A Merry Carol of the Bells. On the way to purchase ice cream, they spotted Salvation Army bell ringers. When they returned home, Jesus dropped by for a chat and gave them a Bible. They talked about the many needs people have, including jobs, food and shelter. Then a cross was given and Jesus let the family tell the story of his long-ago birth and the choir sang Beautiful Emmanuel, with soloist Roger Lapp. The choir sang Call Him Jesus and the mother and child tableaux scene was revealed with the story continued by Jesus. The choir sang Fear Not, with soloist Jean Hoke. Youthful angels appeared with wings spread wide. Shepherds arrived, marveling at the baby Jesus in the tableaux scene. Jesus continued the story. Hallelujah, was sung by the choir, assuring us Jesus is always with us in spirit. Jesus continued his story. As Mary and Joseph followed the star, the choir sang Carol of the Kings and the kings arrived bearing gifts, completing Scene Two. In the final scene, Jesus concluded the story by telling the family the most important and best thing about the Christmas is to love others, have a relationship with him and he came to bring peace, hope and love. At this point, the choir sang Christmas Changes Everything. Pastor Lantzy closed with, May the peace of Christmas be with you. Jesus came so He could know us, share with us and to be with us. The timeless story Jesus shared with that little family, portrayed so beautifully that night by the cast, is a personal one for each of us to keep close in our hearts and reflect upon all year long. Special appreciation is extended to the volunteers who constructed the tree: Jim Anderson, Karl Davenport, Steve Garrison, Jim Gathany, Bob Hagaman, Oscar Jenkins, John Mereseau, Warren Perkins, Steve Spurlock and Tom Wise. To the tree decorators: Sandy Hembree and the Womens Ministry team. To the safety crew: Terry Cates and Daniel Fields. To the sound, lighting and technical crew: Patsy Jenkins, Jim Jones and Cindy Peterlin. To the cast: Jordan Collins, as Martha; Morgan Collins, as Mary; Drew Cappiello, as Andrew; John Peterlin, as modern-day Jesus; Bob Charlton, as Isaiah; Billy Christy, as Joseph; Lauren Siller, as Mary; Joshua Ehrhart and Tesa Potts, as young Jesus. The angels were Lee Clifford, Macie Reeves and Cheryl Todd. The shepherds were Hunter Claybaugh, Brian and Joshua Clifford, Bob Hagaman, Karl Nelson and Wayne Purcell. The wise men were Robin Clifford, Lee Earl Stokes and Warren Perkins. This is a Christmas tradition the community deeply appreciates.

National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association to meet today Special to the ChronicleEven in rain and cold temperatures, Citrus County Parks & Recreation and Lowes made sure local families in need received Christmas trees. The third annual Adopt-a-Tree event was held Dec. 13 at the Central Ridge Community Center in Beverly Hills. Fifty trees were adopted by local families and businesses. The trees were then decorated and put on display around the community center grounds. In the past, the trees have remained on display for several days; however, this year the weather did not cooperate. To prevent the trees from being ruined, delivery had to be moved to Dec. 14 and 15. I truly enjoy being a part of this event each year, seeing the excitement on the families faces makes it all worth it, said Parks & Recreation Recreation Program Specialist Crysta Henry. Lowes Manager Tim Graff and employees Mike Rosino and Dane Withrington drove across the county to make sure the families received their Christmas trees. The Craftsman Guild of Beverly Hills donated time to make the wooden tree stands, the Beverly Hills Surveillance Team and the Citrus County Sheriffs Office watched the area where the trees were displayed.

TUESDAY, JANUARY14, 2014 C9CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.How many five-putts were there on the PGA tour last year? This deal has instructive points for both sides. The auction went as given. Note, in particular, Easts pass. Yes, West might have had a three-suiter with a heart void, and a contract of four spades would have either made or been a cheap save when four hearts doubled was making. But it is the percentage action to pass when balanced. It is usually easier to win four tricks than 10. (Yes, here five clubs makes, but how would you get there?) West led the spade ace: five, two, three. What happened after that? Since Easts low card denied the spade queen, West anticipated that South had begun with queen-doubleton. So West could see four probable tricks. However, his partner rated to have one of the minor-suit kings but which one? When West cashed the spade king, East made a suit-preference signal. Because he held the diamond king, he dropped his spade eight. (With the club king, East would have followed with his four.) Now West led a low diamond. East won with his king and shifted to the club jack. The defenders took two tricks there. South, down to eight trumps, ruffed the next play and cashed the heart ace to drop the king and get out for down two. Did you notice Souths error? He should have played his spade queen at trick one. Then it would have been dangerous for West to continue with the spade king, lest South ruff, cash the heart ace, get to dummy with the heart queen, and discard two losers on the spade jack and nine. There were a surprising 11 five-putts on the PGA tour in 2013.

PGMotherRules Dear Annie: I have been in a committed relationship for a year. Admittedly, my girlfriend and I (we are lesbians) rushed into things. We moved in together quickly when she broke up with her girlfriend of five years. After the first month, Dennie cheated on me with her ex. I wrote it off, but a few months later, she cheated again. I have generalized anxiety disorder and started to associate going to work with Dennies cheating, which made my work life miserable. Shortly after all of this happened, I emotionally cheated with an ex of my own. I admitted this to Dennie. She was angry and sad, but I said she should give me a second chance because Id already given her two. I deleted my exs phone number and blocked her in all forms of communication. I recently found out that Dennie visited her ex when she was briefly in the hospital. It wasnt cheating, but we had agreed that one of the conditions of continuing our relationship is that all contact with the exes must be stopped. One month later, Dennie cheated on me again with this same girl in our home. Its hard for me to look at Dennie the same way. My head keeps telling me to let her go, but my heart isnt ready. Ive asked Dennie to go with me for counseling, but she says she wants us to work it out on our own. She says she isnt the only one at fault. Weve both made mistakes, but the difference is that Ive learned from mine. I cant continue unless we both can be faithful. What should I do? Cheated On Again Dear Cheated On: Dennie is not yet over her ex, and you seem well aware of it. You were her rebound. You desperately want Dennie to be someone she is not, and it isnt working out. Unless you want your heart broken over and over, please let her go. Even if she doesnt return to her ex, her next relationship might not be with you. If you can accept this outcome, you can move forward. Dear Annie: Growing up, I thought if I had siblings, I would have learned how to get along with others my own age. But now that I have reached the ripe old age of 70, I am grateful to have been an only child. Heres why: There was enough money to send me to college. I have read countless letters in your column complaining about siblings and have listened to the complaints of my friends about theirs. I knew it was totally on me to make decisions about my parents health as they became unable to do so, with no arguments from siblings. So for your readers out there who are thinking of stopping after one child, I say good idea. Only Child in Massachusetts Dear Child: We are glad you have embraced your status. But for every person who is happy to be an only child, you will find others who could not imagine their lives without their loving siblings. Granted, people complain about their relatives, and when it comes to advice columns, you are more likely to read about problems. We know that siblings can drive you crazy so can spouses and parents. But a good relationship with a brother or sister can be a source of comfort throughout life. Dear Annie: A Loving and Lonely Grandma said her teenage granddaughter avoids her because of her raspy voice. At least one of the parents is complicit in the girls behavior. I can understand her being embarrassed. Teenagers can be embarrassed by your breathing. But sometime in the distant past, her parents should have stopped the behavior, saying, How would you feel if someone treated you like that because you had a different voice? Its a teaching moment.
