But other changes to the federal flood insurance program, including higher premiums on businesses, vacation homes and frequently flooded properties will remain in place, as well as a new rule blocking homeowners from passing insurance subsidies on to the people who buy their homes. The provision is authored by Louisiana lawmakers and political rivals Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu and GOP Rep. Bill Cassidy and comes as the Senate is poised to debate much broader relief to homeowners facing higher premiums. Cassidy is running for the GOP nod to take on Landrieu this year. The move comes as the government is beginning to implement a significant overhaul of the muchcriticized program. That overhaul passed in 2012 with sweeping support from both liberals and tea party conservatives but has caused a panic in places like Staten Island, N.Y., and the New Jersey coast and in flood-prone areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida, where higher rates threaten to push some people out of their homes. The practical effect of the Cassidy-Landrieu provision is relatively limited and can be added to the spending bill only because it does not increase the budget deficit. It effectively blocks through the Sept. 30 end of the budget year the ability of the Federal Emergency Management Agency to prepare for scheduled premium increases on people whose homes are not currently considered to be in a flood zone but are deemed to be flood prone under new FEMA maps. Those map-related premium increases arent scheduled to take effect until October anyway; the See BUDGET/ Page A5 Bill would delay some flood insurance hikes Shooting suspect said he feared for his life Associated PressWESLEY CHAPEL Chad Oulson was described by friends as a man who loved dirt bikes and his baby daughter.

County commission agrees to study building purchase CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS Commissioners gave staff the go-ahead on Tuesday to look into whether buying the Meadowcrest building that houses West Citrus Government Center would be a good deal. Were not buying the building, were doing the feasibility (study) to see if its practical to buy the building, Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney clarified after County Administrator Brad Thorpe told the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) an option in the lease allows the county to purchase the building for $4,050,000 before May 31, 2014. The board agreed by a 3-2 vote to authorize staff to research whether the purchase is advisable. Thorpe will present the information at a future board meeting for the board to vote on whether or not to buy the building that contains not only the satellite offices of the clerk of court, tax collector, property appraiser and supervisor of elections, but also a bank branch and offices for other private businesses. Commissioners Scott Adams and Rebecca Bays voted against considering the purchase. Adams said $44,000 would come off the tax roll if the county purchased the building. This building goes back, according to these records, to 1984, so its a 40-year-old building, Adams said, although the age would be 30 years if construction completed in 1984.

MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerRobert Priselac resigned from the Citrus County Hospital Board on Monday night, saying in a written statement he no longer wants to serve with a board that insists on keeping a property tax alive despite the imminent Citrus Memorial hospital transaction. Priselac, first appointed to the board in June 2012, was the only board member to support a Citrus Memorial sale to Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) rather than a lease, even though it meant the hospital board would still exist. However, a sale would remove its taxing powers, Priselac said. Because of the type of transaction that was selected, lease versus a sale, I am having a very difficult time supporting that position, he wrote. With a lease there will be a continuation of ad valorem tax, and regardless of the amount of tax, the citizens do not need to subject to pay a tax that is not needed. A position that is currently supported by the majority of the board and legal counsel. The hospital board and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation both voted Friday to sign a letter of intent with HCA, the first formal document that begins a process expected to culminate in a $140 million 50-year lease. Hospital board members have asked state Rep. Jimmie T. Smith and Sen. Charlie Dean, both R-Inverness, to draft legislation to limit the CCHBs taxing authority. Right now the maximum is 3mills; board members say the maximum should be the current rate, 0.245mills, or less. CCHB Chairwoman Debbie Ressler said she was surprised by Priselacs resignation. She said board members want to restrict their taxing authority. The property tax cannot go away, but the amount can be altered, Ressler said. The hospital board membership has changed radically in the last two years. Gov. Rick Scott removed three board members and appointed Priselac in 2012, then followed that up with the appointments of Mike Bays, Gene Davis and Krista Joseph. The state Senate, however, which confirms the governors appointments, dropped Bays and Priselac. Davis, believing he would not be appointed, resigned. Scott, however, appointed Priselac again in June along with Dr. Mark Fallows, who remains on the board with Ressler and Joseph. Priselac said in an interview he thought he again would not find Senate support in the 2014 session. I doubt Ill get Senate confirmation, just like last year, he said. Priselac said theres no need for the hospital board to levy any tax once Citrus Memorial comes under the control of HCA. Whether its $20 a year on some properties, he said, its still $20.

From staff reports RANDONLARRABEEThe News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE In a bid to boost both his legislative agenda and his political standing, Gov. Rick Scott on Tuesday named former House Majority Leader Carlos Lopez-Cantera as lieutenant governor, with the appointment coming 10 months after Jennifer Carroll resigned from the post. Lopez-Cantera, a Republican who became Miami-Dade County property appraiser after leaving the House, is believed to be the first Hispanic lieutenant governor in Floridas history. He brings eight years of legislative experience to Scotts administration, a contrast to the governors background as a businessman who ran against the GOP establishment in the 2010 primary. I am confident that we took the right amount of time to find the right person to serve as Floridas lieutenant governor, said Scott, who was recently sued over the length of the search for Carrolls replacement. Carlos leadership experience will make him a vital part of ensuring the passage of our $500million tax-cut package this year.

Special to the ChronicleEvery third Friday of the month, the streets of downtown Inverness fill with classic and vintage cars for Friday Night Thunder.

Event & Visitors Bureau grand opening, street party Friday Special to the ChronicleCarlos Lopez-Cantera will take office as lieutenant governor Feb. 3. Scott names second Tax season opens Jan. 31, still wraps up by April 15 PATFAHERTY Staff writerSome people with the postholiday season practice of filing their federal tax returns have been surprised to find out the Internal Revenue Service is running late again. This year, the IRS is not opening the 2014 filing season for individuals until Jan.31. It had initially planned to start Jan.21. But according to its news release, additional time was needed to overcome delays caused by last years 16-day federal government shutdown. The new date is one day later than the 2013 filing season, which started on Jan.30, 2013, following tax law changes made by Congress on Jan.1. That delayed starting date had originally been Jan.22, 2013, but was pushed back. So far the reaction from clients has been negative, said Michael Kennedy, who has been preparing local tax returns for the past 10 years. People are used to getting their refunds by the end of January; its just not going to happen this year. This year, the soonest they can expect refunds is about Feb.21. Some people are surprised, he said. But if they call ahead, we let them know by phone. Kennedy, who manages the Liberty Tax Service office in Inverness, said people who need the money understand it is not that tax companys fault, but they are not happy with the IRS. Despite the delay on the IRSs end, Kennedy said they have already been busy. He explained clients can come in have their returns prepared, sign the forms and they will filed at the end of January. He said other than the filing delay, there have not been a lot of changes. However, he noted one issue is the availability of education credits. People who file electronically with Free File software companies through the IRS can complete their returns, which will be securely held until Jan.31. The free-file forms will be available at irs.gov starting Jan.31. Despite the delayed opening, H&R Block is emphasizing the 2014 tax season has not been extended and April15 is still the filing deadline. However, the IRS reminds taxpayers that anyone can request an automatic six-month extension to file their tax return using Form 4868.

A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Mayor Jim Farley struck an optimistic note about the citys physical and fiscal state Monday during his annual State of the City speech. After alluding to the near kneebuckling challenges the city had to confront in the past year, Farley clicked off a series ongoing positive developments in the city by the bay. In 2013, Duke Energy, which employed about 600 people, announced it will shutter the nuclear plant north of the city; the federal government announced new hyper flood insurance rates; and perhaps the citys biggest retail destination, the Crystal River Mall, shed key big box stores. Still, many good things have happened, are in progress and are scheduled, Farley said. He said the death of the mall was greatly exaggerated. It is simply reinventing itself. A visit this past Saturday showed that hundreds of people were there, shopping, dining, going to the movies, playing miniature golf and listening to a live bluegrass band, he said. He pointed to the addition of several new ventures to the mall fare and the anticipated addition of an aquarium as harbingers of better things ahead. The mayor also pointed to, among other things, the soon-to-be completed reconstruction of Cutler Spur Boulevard and trail path; the sewer project, which took more than 220 properties off septic tanks; the citys waterfront plan, which aims to effect some code changes to allow for vibrant investment and ventures; a new band shell at Kings Bay Park; the completion of Citrus Avenues streetscape project; and the soon-to-begin wastewater line to the Duke Energy complex, which is expected to reduce Dukes consumption of potable water by up to a million gallons a day. The city also was re-certified as Tree City U.S.A. this past year. The city of Crystal River has come a long way in the last few years in enhancing our parks and infrastructure, developing and improving amenities and moving ever closer to achieving our vision of a walk-able community with a vibrant and esthetically pleasing downtown city center, Farley added. Also: The city council in its capacity as the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) board voted 4-1 to spruce up the citys newly purchased vacant lot at the corner of U.S. 19 and Citrus Avenue. Officials hope, among other things, to: remove a dead pecan tree and palm trees located in the middle of the property; install a privacy fence along the eastern side of the property; install 20 parking spaces between the easement and an existing building, using stone and concrete wheel stops; and some limited landscaping along Citrus Avenue. Vice Mayor Ken Brown voted against the measure saying he didnt want the parking spaces as part of the spruce-up. Brown said he just doesnt see how the city can take back the parking places after people become used to them. During the regular council meeting board members: Extended the term of Community Redevelopment Plan by 30 years. Approved a resolution requesting the transfer of ownership of a portion of County Road 495 from Citrus County to the city of Crystal River. Approved the plans and goals set by the council at a goals workshop. Those goals include: developing the Commercial Waterfront District development guidelines that give consideration to such things as reducing/eliminating onsite parking requirements in conjunction with a pooled parking system that serves the overall CRA district and modifying height restrictions within designated areas; enhance city parks; and facilitate the development of the Three Sisters Springs site. Council members and others are still keen to see the 57-acre parcel opened to the public sooner, rather than later. Businessman and community activist Dr. Paresh Desai is suggesting private or city takeover of the property so a visitor center can be rented. Desai said the property can be opened to the public on a limited basis on weekends and only to pedestrian traffic. He said those visiting can be charged a cover fee to build up revenue, and if at some point U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service which currently manages the property has money to spend on the development of the place, it can be handed back to the service. The Wildlife Service has been under sequester and has been unable to fund some of the intended development projects at the property, including building an entrance on Cutler Spur. The service had said it cannot open the property to regular public access until the entrance, a road and a parking area are built. But there has been a drumbeat of voices in the city agitating for access to the property, which is ideal for manatee viewing. City Manager Andy Houston said city leaders cant make unilateral decisions about the property and that any changes to the management plan will have to be approved by several parties including the Wildlife Service. Farley wants to consult with the Wildlife Service and float the idea of a temporary pedestrian bridge/ entrance to the property and allowing foot access, pending the completion of a permanent bridge/ entrance.

ERYN WORTHINGTON/ChronicleFire Rescue crews from four stations responded to a laundry room fire Monday night at the Bella Oasis hotel in Homosassa. Fire damages hotel laundry ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerHOMOSASSA A Homosassa hotel was damaged Monday night when a fire ignited in the laundry room, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire Rescue. Fire Rescue received a call at 6:03 p.m. that heavy smoke was coming from Bella Oasis firstfloor laundry room. The hotel is at 4076 S. Suncoast Blvd. According to the incident report, access was made to the laundry room and crews found fire inside. The fire was extinguished at 6:15 p.m. and ventilation of the room started. No guests at the hotel were injured and the hotel was back to normal business a short time later. Fire units from Sugarmill Woods, Connell Heights, Crystal River and Kensington responded to the scene to assist. The state fire marshal is investigating. Damage to the laundry room and its contents was estimated at $10,000. provision would likely mean a modest additional delay. The broader bill that will be debated later this month in the Senate would effectively delay the 2012 reforms for four years, a step that critics say guts them because the 2012 law expires in 2017. Some of the most ardent supporters of delaying the premium increases are conservative Republicans from Southern states, where the new rules have sent some home values plummeting because of uncertainty over insurance rates and because subsidized rates cant be passed along to buyers. New flood maps threaten to saddle some homeowners who are paying a few hundred dollars a year now with annual premiums of more than $20,000. The broader flood insurance bill has bipartisan support. It would delay the new rates for homeowners facing higher rates when flood maps are updated. But people with second homes or whose property has repeatedly been flooded would still have to pay the higher rates, which are scheduled to rise by 25 percent a year until their premiums reflect the true risk of flooding.

When Reeves returned to his seat, additional words were exchanged and Oulson threw a bag of popcorn at Reeves, the report said. After officers read him his rights, Reeves told the detective that Oulson struck him in the face with an unknown object, and thats when he removed a .380 caliber gun from his pants pocket. The report said Reeves fired the gun and struck Oulson once in the chest and that he was in fear of being attacked. Judge Lynn Tepper said she found the evidence significant enough to warrant the no bond order. Reeves faces life in prison if convicted. He only spoke once during his court appearance, to say yes, maam to the judge when she asked him if he could afford to hire his own attorney. Reeves, who appeared in court via a video link from the jail, appeared to be wearing a bullet-proof vest without a shirt underneath. Reeves attorney, Richard Escobar, argued that his client should be released because of his deep ties to the community. Escobar said the probable cause document was quite weak and that Reeves was defending himself. The alleged victim attacked him, Escobar said, adding that Oulson threw something, possibly popcorn, at Reeves. At that point in time he has every right to defend himself. The judge said that throwing an unknown object does not equal taking out a gun and shooting someone. Escobar said Reeves has lived in the Tampa Bay area almost his entire life, and he worked at the Tampa Police department for more than two decades until his retirement in 1993, and was a homicide detective and captain during his career. Reeves has two grown children, one a Tampa Police officer. Reeves application to join the Tampa Police Department shows that he served in the U.S. Navy from 1961 to 1963 as a machinists mate on a submarine. After an honorable discharge, he worked as a truck driver, drove a bucket truck for a telephone company and as a warehouse worker. As a police officer, Reeves regularly received outstanding evaluations and numerous letters of commendation for his leadership skills and the frequent trainings he led for other agencies on gun safety and other topics. He was lauded for leading the tactical response team for Vice President George H.W. Bushs visit to Tampa in 1987. He was often praised for his problem-solving abilities to manage stressful situations. Captain Reeves not only has the ability to act decisively when necessary but has the foresight to initiate the proper course of action to avoid conflict, a supervisor remarked in one job performance review. However, early in his career, one supervisor noted Reeves has a tendency to be impatient in regards to legal matters and practices now in force ... and may be abrupt with complainants in some areas of the city. In 1968, he was reprimanded for carelessly handling a city weapon. Reeves home in Hernando County lies north of the movie theater. Neighbors said that Reeves and his wife moved to the rural subdivision about 10 years ago. Everyone in the neighborhood knew that Reeves was a retired police officer, said DAndrea, the neighbor. He was a stand-up guy in the neighborhood, DAndrea said. I would not think he was the type of guy to do something like that. Reeves and his wife were friendly with the neighbors, often attending house parties, said DAndrea. The couple also owned a motorcycle and enjoyed taking long rides. Reeves was instrumental in establishing the Tampa Police Departments first tactical response team, that agencys spokeswoman said. He retired in 1993 and later worked security at the Busch Gardens theme park. He also served on the Crimestoppers board of Hernando County. DAndrea said Reeves experience in law enforcement should have taught him not to pull his weapon in a movie theater. It doesnt just affect his life, it affects a lot of people, he said. Devon Detrapani and her husband Joseph were friends with the Oulsons and said the men worked together at Sky Powersports, a motorcycle and off roadvehicle dealer. Chad Oulson was the companys finance manager and a hard worker, Detrapani said. He rode dirt bikes on the weekend and liked several motocross stars on Facebook, but his true love was his baby daughter, Lexi. They are awesome parents, said Devon Detrapani. They love that little girl so much.

asking, as long as we dont build a Mercedes, if we build an Impala, we can build an Impala for the same price theyre asking and it would be brand new and not a 40-year-old building. Adams said the moving of the government center from its former location on U.S. 19 in Crystal River city limits to Meadowcrest, a few miles east of Crystal River, impacted businesses, and the county should consider that impact in decision-making. Bays said she was not a proponent of this project in the beginning and never advocated buying the building. She posed several questions about the project. How would it fit in with countys long-range strategic plan? What are the financial impacts? Would the county pay for it with bond financing? What would those costs be? What would the cost and the terms be on the remodel? I would like to know the history of the leases and the occupancies of those, Bays said. If the county buys this and they have leaseholders, is the county responsible for collecting the sales tax and giving that to the state? Commissioner Dennis Damato made the motion to start the study and made the case for buying the building. The purchase of this facility is about one thing and one thing only, Damato said. Its about whats best for the taxpayers of this county and the provision of constitutional officers service to them. Damato asked staff to detail the following current costs: land price, surveys, engineering fees, architectural fees, impact fees, sewer and water connection fees, building construction costs, paved parking lots and drainage facilities. Damato estimated the building could be worth about $7.5 million based on its overall 75,000 square feet. Buying it would protect the $1.5 million already spent in renovation and moving costs, he said. The location of the building also best serves county residents, Damato said. It is close to the Central Ridge area where growth is planned. Its the best $4 million the taxpayers will ever spend in this county, because in reality, we can make it happen, Damato said. The rents will pay the debt service and we will wind up with a good building. After Bob Clifford, executive director of the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority, presented an update about the proposed merger between Citrus County Transportation Organization and Hernando County Metropolitan Planning Organization, the board voted unanimously for a resolution of support.

The man reportedly invited them to his house for more drinking and offered McGahens cousin a place to spend the night if she wished. McGahens cousin told investigators she took the man up on his offer to stay over and after a little more drinking decided to go to bed in a bedroom and left McGahen, the man and his girlfriend in the living room. The cousin said she was awakened moments later by McGahen saying he is bleeding everywhere. The cousin said when she went to check on what happened, she found the man lying in a pool of blood and unresponsive to her calls to wake up. The cousin immediately ran to the neighbors to call for help. According to the report by major crimes Detective Jose Carreras, when he tried to ask about the case, McGahen offered vacillating accounts of events. McGahen admitted to Carreras that he shoved the man against the wall when the man tried to prevent him from leaving with his cousin. McGahen said as he was trying leave the mans home with his cousin and girlfriend, the man tried to stop him and McGahen shoved him violently toward the front door, causing the man to fall and hit his head on the edge of the wall. McGahen said he then left the house and went and sat in his car while he waited for the women. Moments later he returned to the house, he said, and found the victim lying in a pool of blood. When Carreras spoke to McGahens girlfriend, he noticed her upper lip was swollen and asked if she had been assaulted. The girlfriend reportedly hesitated then said McGahen did back-slap her. She also told investigators she was on the back porch of the house smoking a cigarette when the victim was attacked. McGahen has denied slapping the girlfriend. Authorities spoke to the victim a day later, after his health improved. The man said after McGahens cousin went to sleep, the pair began rummaging through her purse looking for pills, and McGahen became extremely difficult to deal with. He said he asked McGahen and his girlfriend to leave, but McGahen refused. He said McGahen became agitated and grabbed a shotgun he had in the house after he told McGahen his cousin would be OK to spend the night. The 58-year-old man said he asked McGahen to return the shotgun to where he found it, but he again refused. Moments later, the man said, he felt a hard blow to his head, which caused him to fall. The last thing he remembered before waking up in the hospital was McGahen standing over him and striking him repeatedly. He said he never saw the women during the attack. McGahen was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. Dennis Damatocounty commissioner. ARRESTContinued from Page A1 Scott says boost spending to prevent child abuse Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Reeling from a string of child abuserelated deaths in the last year, Gov. Rick Scott wants to spend millions in order to hire more than 400 additional investigators in the coming year. Scott on Tuesday will outline a proposal to boost the budget of the Department of Children and Families by nearly $32 million. He also wants an $8 million increase for sheriffs offices handling abuse cases. While DCF has made significant changes to protect children, we still have much to do to protect the most vulnerable among us, Scott said in a statement. Even one childs death is a death too many. If approved by state legislators during the annual session that starts in March, the funding would reduce the caseloads of child abuse investigators to 10 cases each. Scotts proposal also calls for extra funding to allow for two-person teams to handle cases involving children the most at risk of abuse. DCF has already launched a pilot program with two-person teams in Miami-Dade and Polk counties. The governors budget proposal also calls for hiring additional state workers to do reviews of ongoing child abuse investigations, as well as reclassifying 50 current positions to higher-paid positions. The move comes after the states child welfare system has come under increased criticism and scrutiny due to a series of deaths in the past year. A report released in November said Florida was failing in its efforts to prevent child abuse deaths because welfare authorities arent picking up warning signs in families at risk. The report reviewed the deaths of 40 children and concluded that welfare authorities who were involved with the families had overlooked danger signs like drug abuse or domestic violence. Most of the children who died were less than 5 years old. The causes of death include suffocation, drowning and physical abuse. The most common cause was suffocation or asphyxia where most of the parents or caregivers had histories of drug abuse or tested positive for drugs following the childs death. The budget recommendations endorsed by Scott mirror ones already suggested by Interim DCF Secretary Esther Jacobo. Armed with input from national experts and data to back up our proposals, we are prepared to ensure that these funds will be laser-focused on protecting children who are most atrisk, Jacobo said in a statement. With Governor Scotts steadfast support of DCF initiatives to improve child safety, I am confident that these strategic investments will be made to keep Floridas children safe. Rick ScottFlorida governor. Officials: Dad threw toddler over balconyKISSIMMEE Authorities said a father threw his 2-year-old son off a second-floor, hotel balcony in central Florida before jumping himself. Kissimmee police responded to the Budget Inn around 2 a.m. Tuesday. A Department of Children and Families news release said Juan Pablo Maradiaga will face an attempted murder charge. DCF said the toddler suffered multiple injuries including several fractures, but is expected to recover. The department said the 41-yearold Maradiaga was also hospitalized, but his condition was not known. DCF is in the early stages of its investigation and has not made any changes in the childs custody. The agency said in a statement that the child will remain safely in the hospital while they complete their assessment. The agency has not had any prior contact with the child.

CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, JANUARY15, 2014 A9 000H3TC
Associated PressSIOUX FALLS, S.D. Bullets and beer long have been part of the lore in Deadwood, the western South Dakota gambling town where Wild Bill Hickok met his demise during an 1876 poker game. Now, an FBI agent nearing retirement hopes to tap that history by opening a combined indoor shooting range and saloon a block off Deadwoods historic Main Street. The Deadwood Guns complex proposed by Greg Vecchi would host several businesses, including a gun shop, a pawn shop, the shooting range and a bar called the Bullets and Beer Saloon. Vecchi also plans to offer premium cigars on an outdoor patio. Its all the things I like: alcohol, tobacco and firearms, he said. Deadwood Mayor Chuck Turbiville said the proposed saloons name, Beer and Bullets, prompted some discussion when it was pitched to city commissioners. To be honest, if it was me, I probably would have come up with a different name, Turbiville said. But commissioners were assured by Vecchis credentials and planned procedures for gun safety. A certified NRA range safety officer always would be on hand, and no one would be allowed to use the gun range if they have been drinking. No one shoots or handles a real gun unless they can blow a 0.00 on a Breathalyzer, Vecchi said. The concept doesnt appear common, but its not without precedent. In 2012, Powder Springs, Ga., approved an alcohol permit for The Governors Club, a facility that includes an indoor shooting range, a full-service gunsmith and a members lounge. In Deadwood, the city commission approved the business to allow alcohol sales and indoor shooting. However, the saloon will have to abide a state law that prohibits holders of concealed carry permits from bringing weapons into establishments that get more than 50 percent of their income from alcohol sales. But there will be plenty of simulated firearms fun to be had after the craft beers begin flowing. The Bullets and Beer Saloon will be equipped with a Ti Training simulator, offering interactive use-of-force scenarios used to train law enforcement officers. Associated PressNOGALES, Ariz. As border security has tightened, drug cartels have turned to tunneling beneath the ground to avoid detection. Nearly 170 tunnels have been found nationwide since 1990, most along the Arizona and California border with Mexico. The job of searching these networks can be dangerous, so the U.S. Border Patrol is unveiling its latest technology in the underground war a wireless, camera-equipped robot that can do the job in a fraction of the time.HOWARETHEYBUILT?Tunnel construction ranges from extremely rudimentary, a small burrow dug by hand sometimes only large enough for a person to crawl through, to very sophisticated, including lights, supports to hold up the ceiling and ventilation. They can range from just a few feet stretching from one side of the border to the other, to up to a quarter mile long. Some tunnels merely go from one side of the border to the other with the contraband being offloaded in a field or on public land, while others exit into warehouses or homes along the border. Miners and other laborers hired by cartels use hoes, jackhammers, shovels and picks to gouge out soil and load the dirt into buckets that are brought back out of the tunnels starting point in Mexico. Their tools are oldfashioned and can be bought at home improvement stores. Miners, for instance, must use compasses because GPS devices dont work underground. Smugglers have dug dozens of crude tunnels in Nogales, Ariz., that begin in Mexico and tie into the Arizona citys storm drainage system. For sophisticated tunnels, such as those found near San Diego, cartels will hire engineers and miners to build the tunnels. A cartel will have a financier or a cell that reports to the cartel bosses and runs the construction. U.S. border officials estimate that the more sophisticated tunnels probably cost between $2 million to $3 million to build.HOWARE TUNNELSUSED?Smuggling groups use tunnels to move drugs, guns and people who want to sneak across the U.S. border, though traffickers are sometimes selective about what they will move through their tunnels. Experts said sophisticated tunnels are used for mostly drug and gun smuggling, though people who dont want to risk traveling above ground will occasionally be sneaked through those tunnels. Cocaine and methamphetamine are brought in through the tunnels, but marijuana which is big and bulky and therefore difficult to move is the most prevalent drug transported through the tunnels. Authorities found a 600yard tunnel in Southern California during November 2011 that resulted in seizures of 32 tons of marijuana on both sides of the border, with 26 tons found on the U.S. side, accounting for one of the largest marijuana busts in U.S. history. That tunnel was equipped with electric railcars, lighting and ventilation while wooden planks lined the floor. Immigrant smugglers use gopher hole tunnels made up of huge PVC pipes that are buried underground and span the border, providing enough space through which a person can barely squeeze. The storm-drain tunnels in places like Nogales are used for both immigrant and drug smuggling.HOWARETUNNELS DISCOVERED?The majority of tunnels are found by human intelligence, either by Mexican or U.S. authorities patrolling the border and noticing the ground has been disturbed, or through informants who tip authorities to their presence.HOWARETUNNELS INVESTIGATEDONCE THEYRELOCATED?So-called tunnel robots have been in use by Border Patrol for several years. They can safely navigate through corrugated pipes, tunnels, and drainage systems while an agent controls the device from the surface, seeing what the robot sees on a handheld screen. The robots are used, in part, as a safety measure to keep agents out of harms way as many tunnels can be poorly built and possibly collapse and lack proper ventilation. They also can navigate an underground labyrinth in a fraction of the time it would take an agent to explore the tunnel. Some of the newer robots, which weigh about 12 pounds and can navigate through passageways that are only several feet wide, are being deployed this year across southern Arizona and California.Source: U.S. Customs and Border Protection and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.A10WEDNESDAY, JANUARY15, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE NATION 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS The Savings Are Yours Because The Savings Are Yours Because The Factory Is Ours!

Interestrates 000H58Q DEATHSContinued from Page A6 Associated PressNEW YORK The good followed the bad for the stock market on Tuesday. One day after logging its worst performance of the year, the stock market bounced back with its best day of 2014. The Standard & Poors 500 index climbed more than 1 percent and erased most of its loss from a day earlier. Technology stocks led the gains as Wall Street analysts raised their assessments of Intel and electronics company Jabil Circuit. A report on retail sales also boosted investor confidence. Excluding spending on autos, gas and building supplies, sales increased 0.7 percent in December, the Commerce Department reported Tuesday. That was better than the increase of 0.4 percent forecast by economists. While the rise in December sales was modest, it helped ease investors concerns about the health of the economy after a surprisingly weak jobs report was published on Friday. This is a preview of what 2014 will be like ... its going to be more volatile than it was last year, said Andres Garcia-Amaya, a global market strategist at JPMorgan Funds. The markets bouncing back and saying the worlds not ending, things are pointing in the right direction. The S&P 500 index gained 19.68 points, or 1.1 percent, to 1,838.88, its biggest gain since Dec. 18. It rose steadily throughout the day and finished close to its high on Tuesday. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 115.92 points, or 0.7 percent, to close at 16,373.86, just below of its high of the day. The technology-heavy Nasdaq composite rose 69.71 points, or 1.7 percent, to 4,183.02. Stocks swing back following bad day Appeals court sets aside Internet neutrality rulesWASHINGTON In a decision that could reshape consumers access to entertainment, news and other online content, a federal appeals court Tuesday set aside Federal Communications Commission rules designed to ensure that transmission of all Internet content be treated equally. The anti-discrimination and anti-blocking rules have barred broadband providers from prioritizing some types of Internet traffic over others. A three-judge panel said that the FCC has the authority to regulate broadband providers treatment of Internet traffic. However, the judges concluded that the FCC failed to establish that its regulations dont overreach.Boeing confirms new 787 battery incidentBattery problems resurfaced on Boeings 787 on Tuesday, after gas was discovered coming out of a battery on a plane parked in Tokyo. Boeing said the problem on a Japan Airlines 787 was discovered during scheduled maintenance. No passengers were on board. The company said it appears that a single battery cell vented, or released gas. The incident comes a year after a fire in a lithium ion battery aboard a Japan Airlines 787 parked at Bostons Logan International Airport. That was followed nine days later by another battery incident that forced an emergency landing in Japan by an All Nippon Airways 787. Those problems prompted the FAA and other authorities to ground all 787s for more than three months. The planes began flying again after Boeing changed the battery system, adding a tougher box to hold the battery and measures to contain any short-circuit or fire. Boeing said those changes appear to have worked as designed in the battery incident on Tuesday. It said its working with Japan Airlines to get the plane flying again.General Motors quarterly dividend is backDETROIT General Motors Co. says it will resume paying a quarterly dividend, its first since the height of the financial crisis in 2008 The U.S. automakers CEO Dan Akerson had hinted that a dividend may be coming and the company confirmed the move Tuesday. General Motors says its dividend of 30 cents per share is payable March 28 to stockholders of record as of March 18. The Detroit-based company says investors should share in the companys success and that the dividend is a signal of confidence for a profitable future. Competitor Ford Motor Co. halted its dividend payment in 2006 and resumed it in 2012.Holiday sales rise on discounts, online shoppingNEW YORK Holiday shoppers were more than willing to spend during the holiday season, if they saw big discounts or were shopping online. Sales rose 3.8 percent from last year for November and December combined, according to the National Retail Federations analysis of federal figures. That was a healthy gain in a season that kept merchants worried right up until Christmas as people held off on spending. That caution and increased online shopping made the holiday less festive at the mall. Shoppers stayed away from many traditional destinations like department stores and electronics stores.DirecTV customers lose The Weather ChannelLOS ANGELES About 20 million DirecTV customers nationwide lost The Weather Channel because of a dispute over fees between the channel and the satellite service. The two companies pointed fingers at each other late Monday as a midnight deadline for renegotiation of carriage fees paid by DirecTV to The Weather Channel passed without an agreement. In a statement, David Kenny, CEO of the channels parent company, The Weather Co., said it offered DirecTV the best rate for its programming. Kenny accused the satellite provider of putting profits ahead of public safety. DirecTV called the loss of The Weather Channel regrettable but added that it would continue to provide weather news on its WeatherNation channel. BusinessBRIEFS From wire reports
OPINION Page A12WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 Is there a Giuliani or Bloomberg in our future?You have to go back to Sept. 11, 2001, to realize what great politicians were in charge of New York City on this day and immediately after. Mayor Rudy Giuliani never complained publicly, he just did his job as best he could. He borrowed the money that was necessary and never talked about it. He was quietly behind the scenes and gave all the credit and resources necessary to the members of the police and fire departments. He was there to offer encouragement and give praise to those who deserved it. He ran up a mountain of debt in taking care of New York City during these trying times, but he never talked or complained about it. New York City was fortunate to have Giuliani in office during this catastrophe. He is now, and was then, a class act. He was followed by Michael Bloomberg. Mayor Bloomberg never complained about what he inherited in the way of the mess or the debt. He just went about his job and continued to work with the people necessary to clean up the mess from 9/11. There was never a bad word about Mayor Giuliani or about the situation he was in. Years after 9/11, Mayor Bloomberg announced the city was obligated to retire some of the debt and he was going to raise real estate taxes for a period of time to pay down the debt. There was an outcry from some of the people, but he stayed with his proposal and raised the taxes. After the debt was paid down and the city was in good financial shape, he lowered the real estate taxes, as he said he would. All during this time he never complained or said anything bad about Rudy or what he inherited. He just did his job and what a good job he did. Fortunately for New York City, this mayor was very rich and he spent a large amount of his personal fortune in and on the city. What a class act Mayor Michael Bloomberg is and was. New York City was truly fortunate to have these two men in place to serve them as mayor during those trying times. Mayor Bloomberg passed up $2.7 million as salary during his 12 years as mayor and in turn accepted $12 $1 a year and spent his own money freely for his own transportation and for his staff to have breakfast and a light lunch every day. Yes, New York City was indeed fortunate, and if I have my druthers I would hope someone of the character would come along and be the benefactor for Citrus County. Alfred E. Mason Crystal RiverThanks for donations for new DAV vanI want to take this opportunity to personally thank the citizens of Citrus County for their overwhelming generosity in their response to the need for a new DAV transportation van. We received hundreds of donations from county residents and we were able to meet our goal to purchase a new van. The order for the van has been placed, and it is hoped to be received in the county by this summer. Any further incoming donations will be put in the DAV Van Project account for a future van and will be used for that purpose only. One hundred percent of your donation is used for the purchase of these vans. Your generosity has made this possible, and this van will be used by our veterans for years to come. Thank you for remembering the veterans, and again, my sincere gratitude for your kindness.Joe Stephens Senior vice commander DAV Chapter 70 Editors note: The following is Citrus County Hospital Board Trustee Robert Priselacs resignation letter.First, I want to express that I am truly honored to have served as a trustee on the Citrus County Hospital Board. When I joined the board, I did so with the intent to review the options to provide enhance health care with the possibility of eliminating ad valorem tax for the support of that care and ending the battles between the boards. Shortly after I joined the board, others were appointed and the board was able to get a RFP issued to look at options to sell or lease Citrus Memorial hospital. Unfortunately, two of the new members term ended quickly. It has not been without much debate and millions in legal costs, but we have now been able to get a letter of intent signed with HCA. I appreciate the hard work and willingness of both boards to put their differences aside to get the letter of intent signed. Now it is time for due diligence, ACHA review and getting a final agreement signed and determine how the proceeds of the lease will be addressed. Since the LOI and many of the legal issues have been addressed, I have reviewed my position on the board and how effective I may be moving forward. Because of the type of transaction that was selected, lease vs. sale, I am having a very difficult time supporting that position. With a lease, there will be a continuation of ad valorem tax, and regardless of the amount of tax, the citizens do not need to be subject to pay a tax that is not needed. A position that is currently supported by the majority of the board and legal counsel. I feel that in the best interest to get this transaction completed, it is time for me to step down especially since I cannot support a tax that is not needed. Therefore, I have submitted my resignation to the governor effective close of business on Jan. 17. I also encourage both boards not to forget the Community Needs Assessment findings and one of the solutions referred to as The Citizens Connection No Wrong Door Concept. There is still a lot work to be done to finalize this transaction, and recommend to the Citizens of Citrus not to assume all is done and to keep monitoring this transaction. They need to make sure their voice is heard if it gets off track. My sincere thanks go out to all the support I have received and appreciate the patience of the citizens while we worked through this difficult period and the dedication of the physicians and employees that never stopped.

The Ocala City Council voted recently to suspend its agreement to bring the New York Yankees baseball farm team to Ocala at the request of the team. It appears Yankees management was turned off by public comment opposing the construction of a stadium at recent Ocala City Council and Marion County Commission meetings. Early on in the process, public sentiment supported the project. However, the realization that a half-cent sales tax would be required to raise $80 million in public dollars for building the stadium, access roads, acquiring land and additional economic development turned public sentiment sour. Additionally, the process had gone on for nearly two years, which could have led to the Yankees developing cold feet. The Yankees issued a statement, which read in part: While we expected to bring the community together with this project it unfortunately has become a source of division. For good or bad, this is the reality we live in today. The public is no longer supportive of investing in private ventures, even if it could mean future prosperity for the region. Citrus County has faced similar opposition, most recently with its port and medical corridor projects. These projects are designed to bring additional commerce to the area, but public support has been lackluster. Understandably, many in the public sector are still stinging from a depression that left many without jobs for a number of years and forced countless others to lose their homes. Nevertheless, it takes investment to realize return. Ocala has passed on a tremendous opportunity; lets hope Citrus County is more fortunate in its future enterprises.

Ive tried to talk to the sheriffs department about it and they said they cant do anything about it because its DOT. Ive talked to a DOT engineer twice in Brooksville. Hes promised me that he would look into it. Ive suggested that they put some pylons up there like they did on Croft Road. State says they dont want to do things like that if they dont have to, but they would certainly look into it. Nobody has done a thing. Everybodys sitting on their finger waiting for an accident, which Ive known has happened a couple of times there. Wont somebody wake up, please?Use a big pumpHey, I think that One Rake at a Time is just a phenomenal project, but why dont they do it one pump at a time? Why dont they buy a used pump that sucks up the Lyngbya and dumps it out like they do the Gold Rush guys? Seems that would be a quicker process. Take the money that theyre getting for all that hard labor in that deeper water theyre not going to be able to do anyways, buy a pump and suck this stuff up and Ill bet youll save a lot of backs and widen the project. I think the pump is what they need to do.Splitting up mail routesIm reading today about the people complaining about getting their mail delivered late and saying that theres two people on one route. The reason for that is its probably theyre doing this vacant route after theyve done their own. As a retired letter carrier, this happened quite often. There was more routes than there was carriers on any certain day, they had to split up the route between two or three people and they did it after they finished their own. Blessing to churchOn Christmas Day, the First United Methodist Church of Homosassa held a dinner to its own members and their guests were invited to partake. There was no charge; just bring two side dishes. There were two homeless men sitting on a church bench near the entrance with a dog. The two men were invited to come inside to have dinner. A plate of food was taken out for the dog. A word of thanks to First United Methodist.Prices make no senseYesterday when I was in Inverness, the price of gasoline there was $3.29. When I came back to Crystal River, the same company has two stations here and it was $3.36. Why the big difference between Inverness and Crystal River with the same companys gasoline? Why is that?Lights on after darkI just read in the paper where a person was talking about after dark, some of the cars travel with no headlights on. I have noticed the same thing and its time for the deputies and the state troopers to stop this before we have horrendous wreckage and killing.

Are you your childs best friend or are you his parent?Have you ever watched a nature program that showed a mother lion or other animal raising their young? They will tolerate the offsprings bad behavior for a while and suddenly it goes too far. The result is a painful swat with a big paw that sends the young cub rolling and ends, with certainty, the behavior that brought forth the punishment. Ask an old retired successful businessman what would have happened to him had he crossed his father growing up. His reply will be something like, Hed a whupped me up side the head. Then ask how that would have affected him and he will say, Whatever I was doing at the time, I would never have done again! Ask a military man what he accomplished in boot camp. He will tell you he learned discipline. Emotions that go into, and reinforce discipline are fear and respect. Tolerance and love have their place, but not in discipline. Those are separate needs to be expressed when appropriate. Did we old farts hate our parents for disciplining us? No. Did some of us go out and shoot up the people at the schools we attended? No. Did we form gangs and kill kids in other gangs? Did we gain respect for others and for ourselves? I think we did. So why has society chosen to discard instinctive proven methods that in the end worked so well, and, once the black and blue spot cleared up left no permanent damage? Why do we criminalize parents and others who want to instill discipline into young minds? Why does society imply that no child should ever feel any pain regardless of their own actions? Nothing succeeds like success, yet as a society we suppress what works even after we see the results of our misguided efforts. When one of the kids in todays society who is allowed to go outside and play (heaven forbid) falls and skins his knee, does he get over it? Does he learn that whatever made him fall in the first place probably would not be a good thing to repeat? Did he learn from his pain brought on by his mistake? Of course he did. Is there any mystery there? Would taking a time out prior to his falling have stopped him from doing whatever caused him to fall? Its time for the pendulum to swing back the other way. Time to teach kids right from wrong. Eventually they will appreciate it just as our, now old generation, did. Dr. Spock passed on. Its too bad his methods didnt pass on with him. This just in, a quote from Ben Stein: Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldnt spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their selfesteem (Dr. Spocks son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what hes talking about. And we said okay. Now were asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they dont know right from wrong, and why it doesnt bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with WE REAP WHAT WE SOW. Steve Brown InvernessWhat Republicans really wantIn answer to (the) Dec. 22, 2013, letter from Vicky Iozzia, Sonya Price and Carol Silver. Its not true that the Republicans do not believe in labor unions. They believe the unions hold too much power. They stand behind anything that the Democrat party wants. They force businesses to close down due to their outrageous demands. They are forcing many companies to move out of our country because they cant operate a business in the U.S. with their demands. The labor unions are not protecting the workers rights. They are just looking out for themselves. I dont believe in amnesty for those that enter our country illegally. A lot of them are criminals from the country they come from. All they come here for is whatever they can get for free. We dont want the government having control of our lives. I for one am very capable to make my own decisions. Background checks are already being done on people applying for gun permits. I have a gun permit and I had to have a check through the FBI, including fingerprinting. You cant just walk into a gun store and walk out with a gun. I had to take a course which was given by a sheriffs deputy, as well. We are against entitlements like food stamps and public assistance for those who are too lazy to go out and get a job to support themselves. Social Security is not an entitlement. It is for those who worked and paid into the system. It isnt meant for those who want a free ride. I support womens issues, like the right for abortion. I do not support abortions as a form of birth control. As far as birth control, a woman can go to the health department and get it for free or very little cost. Many years ago, I backed legalizing abortions by having petitions signed in my neighborhood to legalize them. I dont support universal health care. Look at all the countries that have it. Its a total failure. Doctors are giving up their practice. Hospitals are closing. Taxes are outrageous in those countries. Obamacare is already costing millions more than originally predicted. We need a strong military to protect us against our enemies. We also have to support their families. The pay is so low for the military that many families have to get food stamps. Big business does not need government control. Most big businesses pay a huge share of taxes. Whatever your political outlook, we need Congress and the president to do the job as put forth in the Constitution. I know you probably wont print this letter since it isnt keeping with the views of your newspaper, but I had to get it off my chest.

Shooting Associated PressA woman hugs a student Tuesday at a staging ground set up at the Roswell Mall following a shooting at Berrendo Middle School in Roswell, New Mexico. Boy, 12, shoots 2 classmatesROSWELL, N.M. A 12-year-old New Mexico boy drew a shotgun from a band-instrument case and shot and wounded two classmates at his middle school Tuesday morning before a teacher talked him into dropping the weapon and he was taken into custody, officials and witnesses said. A boy was critically injured and a girl was in satisfactory condition following the shooting at Berrendo Middle School in Roswell. Gov. Susana Martinez said the students were in the gym, where they typically hang out before classes start during cold and inclement weather. The 12-year-old pulled a shotgun and opened fire there at about 8 a.m. However, he was quickly stopped by one staff member who walked right up to him and asked him to set down the firearm, which he did, Martinez said at a news conference.Judge: Okla. cant ban gay marriageTULSA, Okla. A federal judge has struck down Oklahomas gay marriage ban, ruling that it violates the U.S. Constitution. But U.S. District Judge Terence Kern immediately stayed his own ruling Tuesday. That means there wont be a rush to the altar in the conservative Bible Belt state like there was in Utah after a similar ruling last month. Kerns ruling came in a lawsuit filed by two samesex couples over a constitutional amendment approved by Oklahoma voters in 2004. The measure says marriage in the state consists only of the union of one man and one woman. Kern said the ban violates the U.S. Constitutions equal protection clause.Beanie Babies maker sentencedCHICAGO The billionaire businessman behind Beanie Babies learned Tuesday that he wont go to prison for hiding at least $25 million from U.S. tax authorities, and the judge who gave him two years probation instead went to great lengths to praise his charitable giving. H. Ty Warner, one of the highest profile figures snared in a federal investigation of Americans using Swiss bank accounts to avoid U.S. taxes, issued a brief apology before he was sentenced in Chicago federal court. The toymaker, who pleaded guilty to a single count of tax evasion, said he felt shame and embarrassment for what he had done. Warner, 69, could have been sentenced to up to five years in prison, and prosecutor Michelle Petersen asked the judge to give Warner at least a year behind bars. Peterson detailed how Warner meticulously hid his income more than $100 million at one point by filing false tax returns for at least 11 years. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A14WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressWASHINGTON A chastened Congress is putting aside the crisis-driven budget battles of the past three years, embracing a $1.1 trillion spending bill that restores or smooths the sharpest edges of the automatic cuts imposed as a result of its own dysfunction. The huge election-year legislation preserves the downward trajectory on government spending demanded by Republicans. Yet the bipartisan measure steaming through Congress also preserves President Barack Obamas health care overhaul and stricter regulation of financial markets and deflects the most significant attempts by Republicans to rewrite environmental rules and force other changes. Lawmakers hope the compromise will show disgruntled voters before next falls midterm election that Washington especially its unpopular Congress can perform its most basic function of responsibly funding the government. The bravado that prompted tea party Republicans to force a government shutdown in hopes of derailing Obamacare is long gone, replaced by an election-year desire to focus attention on the administrations troubled rollout of the health care law instead of lurching from crisis to crisis. The average American looking at this, it looks pretty dysfunctional for the last couple of years, said Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla. We need to rack up some achievements here not just for Republicans but for incumbents in general and for the institution. There could still be bumps in the road. Congress needs to raise the governments borrowing cap by the end of February or early March, and its unclear how big of a battle that will be. As for the compromise spending bill, the massive measure funds the operations of virtually every federal agency, making cuts and additions reflecting the trade-offs of divided government. While delivering relief from painful budget cuts and caps known as sequestration, it still imposes a 3 percent cut on agency budgets relative to those approved last year before automatic reductions lopped about $60 billion from them.

There are now nesting bald eagles along the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio rivers in Pittsburgh for the first time in more than 200 years, according to Bob Mulvihill of the National Aviary in Pittsburgh. Associated PressJERUSALEM An Israeli newspaper quoted the defense minister Tuesday as deriding U.S. Secretary of State John Kerrys Mideast peace efforts as naive and foolhardy, triggering an angry response from Washington and rekindling simmering tensions with Israels closest and most important ally. The quotes appeared ahead of another visit by Kerry, who is expected in the region in the coming weeks to deliver his ideas on a framework for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Kerry has already submitted to Israel a series of proposals for ensuring Israels security as part of a future peace deal. In the comments published by the Yediot Ahronotdaily, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon called Kerry obsessive and messianic and dismissed Kerrys security plan as worthless. The only thing that might save us is if John Kerry wins the Nobel Prize and leaves us be, Yaalon was quoted as saying. Other Israeli leaders scrambled to distance themselves from Yaalon, while the U.S. condemned the reported comments as offensive and inappropriate. The U.S. Embassy in Israel has complained about the reported comments to the Israeli government, said a senior State Department official. Israeli official knocks Kerry Comments anger U.S. Associated PressWASHINGTON The U.S. judiciary told Congress on Tuesday it opposes the idea of having an independent privacy advocate on the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, while members of Congress lauded the idea at a Capitol Hill hearing. Speaking for the entire U.S. judiciary, U.S. District Judge John D. Bates sent a letter to the Senate Intelligence Committee saying that appointing an independent advocate to the secret surveillance court is unnecessary and possibly counterproductive, and he slammed other key reforms as adding too heavy a caseload to the secret courts work. In FISA court hearings, judges only hear from the government seeking a spy warrant. Bates said opening the proceeding to an advocate for privacy in general who would never meet the suspect or be able to defend the charges against him wouldnt create the kind of back and forth seen in open criminal or civil court proceedings. Given the nature of FISA proceedings, the participation of an advocate would neither create a truly adversarial process nor constructively assist the courts in assessing the facts, he wrote. Members of the presidential task force that recommended such an advocate defended the proposal before the Senate Judiciary Committee, as did Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., during a hearing on the NSAs surveillance programs Tuesday. Cass Sunstein, a member of the Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies, said the secret court should not be making decisions on law or policy without an opposition voice. We dont think thats consistent with our legal traditions, Sunstein said. He also said that a public advocate would only be needed for a small number of cases because most FISA proceedings do not involve issues of law or policy. Bates, the former FISA chief judge, also rejected the panels recommendation that the government seek court approval every time it wants to obtain information in cases of national security, known as a national security letter. Roughly 20,000 such letters are issued every year. Bates said it would create too much work for the court, even if staff were added to handle the caseload.

There were widely varying reports of casualties. Associated Press journalists saw the bodies of two men reportedly killed in a clash that began late Monday between soldiers and townspeople in Antunez and spoke with the family of a third man that said he also died in the incident. No women or children died, contrary to reports by the spokesman for one of selfdefense groups that have sprung up over the past year to challenge a drug cartel. The clash occurred as the government sent more troops to the so-called Tierra Caliente, where the vigilantes have been fighting the Knights Templar cartel. The government on Monday had called on the self-defense groups to disarm.Venezuelan papers run low on paperCARACAS, Venezuela Venezuelas oldest newspaper is scrambling for newsprint as worsening shortages threaten to take several publications out of circulation in the coming weeks.

They want to silence us, El Impulso, Venezuelas oldest newspaper, wrote in a Jan. 5 front-page headline. The Barquisimeto-based newspaper warns that it may have to halt its presses in three weeks unless it receives a delivery of newsprint. Authorities didnt comment on the paper shortage.

Williams improved her record to 60-8 at Melbourne Park, equaling Courts 60 match wins in the Open era at the Australian championship. Court, who won seven of her 11 Australian titles before the Open era began in 1968, has a show court named in her honor adjacent to Rod Laver Arena. Two fans held up a sign on Wednesday saying center court was Serenas Arena. She walked into the stadium wearing a fitted pink blazer, despite the heat which topped 104 degrees during the 63-minute match. Williams fended off the only break point she faced against the No. 104-ranked Dolonc with an ace in the sixth game of the second set. Despite having trouble at times on her ball toss when she was looking into the sun, the 17-time major winner fired 10 aces, won 85 percent of points when she got her first serve in and hit 24 winners, sticking to the strategy for a hot day as she extended her winning streak to 24 matches. I just try to hit a bunch of aces and a bunch of winners thats all you can do because its too hot to get into long rallies, she said. Li Na completed back-to-back wins over the two youngest players in the draw to reach the third round. The 2011 French Open champion, a two-time finalist at Melbourne Park, raced through the first set against 16-year-old Belinda Bencic in 22 minutes, conceding just 10 points. She had to work harder in the second before winning 6-0, 7-6 (5). Li, from Wuhan, one of the three Stove Cities in central China renowned for hot temperatures, turns 32 next month. In the first round, she dropped just two games as she defeated Season ends for Canes and Pirates CR blanked by Fivay; Citrus falls in overtimeTONYCASTRO CorrespondentBROOKSVILLE Conventional wisdom dictates the longer an inferior team faces superior odds, eventually something good could happen. That appeared to be the case for almost three-quarters of the opening half in Tuesdays first of four quarterfinal matchups in the District 3A-7 girls soccer tournament at Nature Coast Technicals Shark Tank Stadium. Third-seeded Hudson-Fivay had solved sixthseeded Crystal River twice during regular season action play, 5-0 and 8-2. But for 32 minutes of the third clash, the Pirates had withstood nine shots to remain in a scoreless deadlock. Unfortunately for the Pirates, by the 33rd minute, Fivay sophomore Leah Neck took over. Neck, who arrived with 19 goals, scored the first of her four playoff goals to enable the Lady Falcons (16-5-2) to earn the schools first-ever district playoff win over the Pirates (4-14-2), 5-0. Following a gorgeous cross by junior Alex Christianson, Neck converted a 6-yard tapper to open the scoring, 1-0. Thats the way it stood until 20 seconds remained in the half when junior Alex Mummas shot deflected off keeper Krystina Hartwells hands into the path of Neck, who tucked in the carom for her second goal of the game. Five minutes into the second half, Necks best friend on the team, sophomore Aubry Hall, threaded another pass to her leading to her third goal to make it 3-0. At the 50-minute mark, Neck stole a pass and ripped a diagonal shot just inside the far post without an assist. Inside eight minutes remaining, junior Lupe Amayas pass found a wide-open Hall for the final tally. The loss represented Pirate senior forward/midfielder Delaney Owens final prep match. This (loss) was really big. It really sucks playing my last high school match, admitted the 18-year-old Owens. We really fought. Eight-year Pirate skipper Bill Reyes was proud of his teams efforts. The final score doesnt indicate how close these girls were to making something special happen, he said. Were a four-win team. This is probably the best match weve played all season. It took us awhile to score; some of that had to do with nerves, pointed out Fivays fourth-year mentor Christine Rizzeri. Give Crystal River credit, they played their hearts out. They could have very easily scored. Its always hard to beat a team three times. In the other Citrus County matchup, No. 4 seed Springstead (13-4-2) edged No. 5 seeded Citrus (10-11-2) in double overtime, 2-1.

The Gators rolled to a 72-50 victory at home. No. 7 Florida routs Georgia for record 25th straight home win Associated PressGAINESVILLE Breaking the school record for consecutive home wins should be something to celebrate. Not for No. 7 Florida, which has fallen one step short of the Final Four the last three years. Michael Frazier II scored a careerhigh 21 points and the Gators handled Georgia 72-50 on Tuesday night, notching their 25th straight at the OConnell Center. Undermanned Florida topped the previous mark set between March 2006 and November 2007. Two-time national champions Corey Brewer, Taurean Green, Al Horford and Joakim Noah did most of the heavy lifting in that streak. This group, which has four seniors who have tasted plenty of disappointment, barely acknowledged their achievement. Its cool to be a part of that and to accomplish something like that, center Pat Young said. Hopefully we can top it with an NCAA championship and a Final Four and all that good stuff. Making a record that someone else has to break is pretty cool. Hopefully it stays here for another 100 years or however long Florida is around. If Frazier continues to play like he did against the Bulldogs, Florida (14-2, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) certainly could improve its chances of making a deep run in the NCAA tournament. Frazier made 7 of 16 shots, including 5 of 12 from 3-point range. His previous high was 20 points in a loss to Wisconsin early this season. Coaches and teammates told Frazier to keep shooting despite a 1-for-8 start. Any time you can get hot like that, catch fire, it feels good, Frazier said. My teammates had great confidence in me, coaches told me to keep shooting. That always feels good to have my teammates and my coaches behind me.

Niculescu returned to win 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 and will next play No. 22 Ekaterina Makarova, who followed up her first-round win over Venus Williams with a 6-2, 7-5 victory over American Irina Falconi.

Gage was the teams leading rebounder with 13, while Zachar also pulled down 10 boards.

Seven Rivers (9-8 overall) play Thursday at Oak Hall Academy.Georgia hires FSUs Pruitt to head defenseATHENS, Ga. Georgia has hired Jeremy Pruitt from Florida State as defensive coordinator only two days after losing Todd Grantham to Louisville. Georgia coach Mark Richt said Tuesday he is ecstatic to hire Pruitt, who has coached on three straight national championship teams at Alabama and Florida State. Under Pruitt, Florida State led the nation in scoring defense and ranked third in total defense while winning the national championship in 2013. Before moving to Florida State, Pruitt was the secondary coach at Alabama for three seasons, including the Crimson Tides national championship teams in 2011 and 2012. With the Feb. 5 national signing day only three weeks away, Richt moved quickly to hire Pruitt, who is known as a strong recruiter. Grantham left Georgia on Sunday to become Louisvilles defensive coordinator.Lions hire ex-Colts coach Jim CaldwellALLEN PARK, Mich. The Detroit Lions have hired coach Jim Caldwell. The team confirmed the move Tuesday and has scheduled a news conference at Ford Field today. San Diego Chargers assistant and former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt was seemingly Detroits top choice, but he chose to take the head coaching job at Tennessee on Monday night. The Lions are giving Caldwell another chance to be an NFL head coach. He helped the Indianapolis Colts play in the Super Bowl after his debut season in 2009 and was fired two years later after a 2-14 season while Peyton Manning was injured, dropping his three-year mark to 26-22.McAdoo interviews with Dolphins, hired by GiantsMIAMI The Miami Dolphins interviewed Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Ben McAdoo about becoming their offensive coordinator soon before he was hired by the New York Giants. The Giants announced Tuesday night that he was their new offensive coordinator. McAdoo had been with Green Bay for eight seasons and spent his first six years there as tight ends coach. Last week he interviewed for the Cleveland Browns head coaching job. McAdoo had been endorsed by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and coach Mike McCarthy.Floridas Mercer suspended after robbery chargeGAINESVILLE Florida forward Christin Mercer has been suspended indefinitely following her arrest on robbery charges. Mercer, a sophomore from Douglasville, Ga., was released on her own recognizance Monday. She has an arraignment scheduled for Jan. 30. Mercer was arrested over the weekend in connection with a home invasion and robbery that took place in May. Mercer and a co-defendant are facing a third-degree felony charge for conspiracy to commit robbery. Three other defendants are facing a first-degree felony charge for home invasion robbery with a mask and a firearm. Mercer has played in 12 games this season, averaging 11.8 points and 5.8 rebounds a game off the bench. She did not play in Floridas 82-68 loss at LSU on Saturday. The Gators (13-4, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) host Georgia on Sunday.From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Thornton added 11 points and seven rebounds. Dorian Finney-Smith scored 14 points for Florida, while Will Yeguete added 12 and Young 10. Florida won despite playing its second game without leading scorer Casey Prather, who sat out with a bruised right knee. The Gators had just seven scholarship players available. They got even thinner when point guard Scottie Wilbekin left the game midway through the second half with cramps. He got treatment and returned a few minutes later. But just as he re-entered the game, guard DeVon Walker headed to the locker room with a busted lip. In the midst of those issues, the Gators went 9:43 without a field goal in the second half, but the Bulldogs did little to take advantage of the lull. Georgias real problem was the opening 20 minutes. Florida used a 24-4 run in the first half to open a 20-point lead and pretty much coasted from there. The Bulldogs had 11 turnovers and 11 points with 4:26 remaining before halftime. When you play like boys in a mans game, youve got to be tougher than we were tonight. Theres no way around it, Georgia coach Mark Fox said. Weve got to play better on the road in environments like this against teams like this. ... We didnt come in here with the mentality we needed to play a team like them on the road. Georgia looked nothing like the same team that upset Missouri and Alabama to open SEC play. Floridas press and stifling defense created havoc. And hitting shots from behind the arc only added to Georgias woes. Frazier, Finney-Smith, Wilbekin and Walker all hit 3s in the decisive spurt. Florida finished 11 of 26 from 3-point range. We lost our poise, Thornton said. We got too relaxed and made some very immature plays, and once you get behind the 8-ball in a place like Florida, they will crush you quickly. The game was decided in right there in the first half. The Bulldogs had nearly as many turnovers (12) as points (16) at the break. They shot 31.6 percent from the field, well shy of Floridas 50 percent shooting. The closest Georgia got was 45-31 with about 11 minutes to play. Fraziers fifth 3 made it 70-39 and sent many scrambling for the exits in a laugher. Floridas last loss at the ODome was March 4, 2012, against Kentucky. The Gators have won eight straight this season and 12 in a row at home against the Bulldogs. Im really, really proud of our guys, Gators coach Billy Donovan said. Thats great. The guys that had won that many in a row obviously did some really special things. These guys havent won national championships, but theyve done some special things as well, and Im proud of them. Its a good milestone. I think any time you can do something for the first time in school history its always nice. GATORSContinued from Page B1

Time to sign up Eric van den HoogenON TENNIS Full schedule Short year, long finish on PGA Tour Associated PressHONOLULU Brandt Snedeker is a walking billboard for his summer plans. Proudly displayed on the front of his golf shirt is Wyndham, which happens to be the title sponsor for the PGA Tour event in Greensboro, N.C., not so conveniently positioned between the PGA Championship and the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs. On the sleeve of his shirt is RBC, the title sponsor of the Canadian Open, where Snedeker is the defending champion. Golfs third-oldest national championship also is in a tough spot on the schedule, held the week between the British Open and the Bridgestone Invitational. The latter is a World Golf Championship. And by the way, have you noticed the brand on Snedekers cap and golf bag? Thats right Bridgestone. When does he take a week off? Apparently, he doesnt. Im playing the rest of the year, if thats what you mean, he said when asked about all the logos. It will be a long stretch. It will be nine in a row at the end of the year. With the Ryder Cup in Europe this year, the PGA Tour agreed to alter its schedule. The four FedEx Cup playoff events will be played over four straight weeks. That allows for one week off before players travel to Scotland for a weeks worth of dinners and three days of golf at the end. Snedeker has the worst of it, though Zach Johnson is not far behind. Johnson has no corporate connections with Canada or Greensboro, but his big stretch starts a week before the British Open. The John Deere Classic is like a fifth major to the normal guy from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Johnson cant and wont miss that one. Hed love to play Greensboro, where he tied for fifth last year. But even if he doesnt play Canada or Greensboro, thats eight big events in 10 weeks. I hope I can get in a position where I can take one off, Johnson said. It worked for me last year. I had no choice, but it was fine. Johnsons brother got married the week of The Barclays, so he got a late start on the playoffs. No matter. Johnson won the BMW Championship and was among the five players who had a direct shot at the $10 million bonus. But he made it clear that he would skip one playoff event if he could. Some guys might not be in a position to take time off. Qualifying for the nine automatic Ryder Cup spots ends at the PGA Championship, and the three captains picks are a few after that, which is known as audition time. Others could find themselves in a spot of trying to get to East Lake for the FedEx Cup finale. I think guys will skip for sure, Snedeker said. Everyone is going to take a hard look at the schedule. It will be interesting to see what guys do. Im taking a little more time off in the middle of the year. We did it last year and it worked well. Just take a couple of three-week breaks. Thats why no one should be alarmed to see Matt Kuchar taking a month off early in the year, or Adam Scott headed for a six-week hiatus from tournament golf. Tiger Woods has been playing one of the shortest schedules of any top star. Hes good enough he can do that. Associated PressAdam Scott is one of many golfers who have to find different times throughout the year to take breaks with an even more condensed 2014 schedule.
Section CWEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerLECANTO Twenty-five years ago, a dream was built and a calling was answered. Within weeks of the last nail being pegged, Debra Redmond began educating pupils who assembled at the new Citrus County private schoolhouse Seven Rivers Christian School. She was the very first person hired to work at Seven Rivers 25 years ago, said Seven Rivers Director of Advancement Wendy Cash. She is the only teacher from the first years of our school that is still here. Redmond thought her calling was as a kindergarten teacher; however, 10 years ago, her plans changed. Our prior librarian retired, and they asked if I would be willing to go back to school and get my masters degree in library science, she said. I have always loved reading and the library, so it was a natural step for me. With 14,000 books in the schools collection, Redmond said she assists students in realizing that reading is the underpinning of success. In the lower grades we teach them to read and give them the foundation and building blocks to be successful, she said. In the middle grades we are trying to help them establish a desire to learn. In high school they can take that and become critical thinkers and people who are successful in any area of growth. Those are some of the goals of our curriculum and education here. Reading and communication are such threads throughout all of that. For children to be successful as adults you have to be able to read, Redmond continued. It is so important to get an early start even before they begin school. Good readers are good writers and good communicators. Its all based on their ability to read. Students in prekindergarten through fifth grade visit the library weekly for story time and to borrow books. In the media center we try to support what the teachers are doing in the classroom, and there is nothing better than to see the light in a childs eyes when he or she discovers that they can read, Redmond said. That light of recognition, she said, is life-changing. Books are magical, especially with younger children. For them to be able to hold a book in their hands and manipulate the pages and to go inside the book themselves, Redmond said. A lot of people say that books are going to become obsolete, she continued. I dont believe thats true. I believe there will always be books. How can you curl up next to your mom and read without the book? I think it is a way of communicating and sharing. Especially for young children, I believe that having a book makes them want to read. In fact, a book is how Redmond was able to transition through school herself. As a child I moved constantly because my parents were in the service, she said. Every time we moved I would go to the library and get The Secret Garden. I realized that I was OK because I had a least one friend in this new school. It was books that would give me that friendship. ... I see that with other kids in my experience. They bond with a story and a book. It helps them to move through life with being able to learn from books and connect with a character and the experience that he or she is going through in the book, especially in the upper middle and high school areas. Now celebrating her silver anniversary at Seven Rivers, Redmond plans to be nurturing young imaginations for another 25 years. There is nothing more fantastic than my job, she said. It is also a wonderful experience to teach your students children. That has been fun, watching it pass down from generation to generation and establishing the idea that truth is available for them. They can use their abilities to grow into young men and women who honor God in their lives through the means of education. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleDebra Redmond reads aloud to a group of children at the Seven Rivers Christian School from one of the many books the school possesses. A quarter-century ago, Debra Redmond set foot in Seven Rivers Christian School as its first employee. Today shes still there, nourishing young minds as a librarian. The Seven Rivers Christian School has some 14,000 books in its collection. Debra Redmond says that while some people believe books will become obsolete, I dont believe thats true. I believe there will always be books. As a child I moved constantly because my parents were in the service, Redmond says. Every time we moved I would go to the library and get The Secret Garden. I realized that I was OK because I had a least one friend in this new school. It was books that would give me that friendship. ... I see that with other kids in my experience.

The series covers: the preamble, the seven articles and 27 amendments the big ideas of the document the history of its making and the signers Figure skating is an awesome mix of art and athletics. It is one of the favorite events at the Winter Olympics. Ice skating in its many forms is fun for everyone. If you skate yourself, it is amazing to see the top skaters in the world performing. It is also cool to create your own skating performances just for fun. When people ice-skate in special patterns, or figures, it is called figure skating. With the 22nd Winter Olympic games coming up, The Mini Page talked with a choreographer for Olympic-level skaters, Lori Nichol, to find out more about the art of figure skating. A choreographer (KOR-eeAH-gruh-fer) is someone who creates the mix of steps and moves for a dance or skating performance.Ice dreams Top skating performances start with a dream, Lori said. You have to work hard to achieve that dream. I remember dreaming about myself on the ice and skating. If you love it like that, you chase the dream and work as hard as you need to achieve it.Working for the dream Figure skaters are serious athletes. It takes years of hard work to become a top skater. The men are especially strong. Can you imagine vaulting yourself into the air and rotating four times and then landing on a skinny little blade? Lori said. The first time they land this, you should see the joy. After hundreds of falls, they finally achieve this. Its the best feeling.Falling for skating In competitions, skaters must perform a certain set of movements. They need to perfect all the required moves for their routines. Skaters train for three to six hours every day. It is normal to fall in figure skating. When she was a little girl, a coach told Lori: You arent improving unless youre falling. When you try really hard, youre going to fall. Besides the actual skating training, skaters also study strength training, yoga, ballet, music and sports psychology.Dancing on IceThe Art of Figure Skating photo by Jay Adeff, courtesy U.S. Figure SkatingGracie Gold performs in the 2013 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

On the Web: At the library: Course From Basic Steps to Advanced Techniques by Peter Morrissey and James Young from The Mini Page 2014 Universal UclickSkating to the right music Most of the time, choreographers choose the music for a performance. Lori, a music researcher and the skater listen to different styles of music for many hours until they find just the right fit for the skater. In competitions, skaters are not allowed to use music with lyrics (LEAR-iks), or words. After the 2014 Olympics, this will change, and singles and pairs will be allowed to skate to music with lyrics. Ice dancers have been allowed to use music with words for years. A lot of thought goes into choosing the correct music. For example, some skaters skate too fast when they get nervous. The choreographer might choose a piece with a slower tempo, or speed. When the beats are further apart, the skater can relax and complete the routine. Other skaters slow down under pressure. They skate better with faster music.Special music When choosing music, choreographers look at the skaters style, skills, body type and personality. For example, skating champion Michelle Kwan was 12 years old when she started working with Lori. The music needed to work for the young Michelle, but needed to be a good fit as she grew up, too. Lori wanted music that let Michelle be both powerful and feminine and helped her tell a story through her skating. Lori and the music researcher thought Michelle would be a good fit for music they loved. (The mixture was based on Salome by Richard Strauss.) About four years Michelles skills and personality had become a good match for that music. That year, she won the World Championship.Music Is the Key photo by Jay Adeff, courtesy U.S. Figure SkatingMax Aaron competes in the 2013 Hilton Honors Skate America.

She has developed programs for eight Olympic medalists and 30 World Championship medalists. She lives in Toronto, Canada, where she works with skaters to develop their programs. She also travels to Europe and Asia, working with skaters during competitions and shows. She began skating when she was a little girl lot of ballet and dance classes. She performed in a professional skating show for several years, and then began coaching and choreographing performances for other skaters. She began focusing solely on choreography when her kids were in school. Although she no longer skates competitively, she still loves it. Im photo by Jay Adeff, courtesy of U.S. Figure Skating from The Mini Page 2014 Universal UclickMusic of the world People from different cultures see beauty in different ways. Olympic judges are from all over the world. A Japanese judge has been raised to see whats beautiful in different ways than a Russian, American or Canadian judge, for example. It is important that judges learn to appreciate what is beautiful in different styles. Skaters need to master the dance forms of different music. For instance, a Japanese dance style is much different than a Spanish flamenco dance. If a skater has a new vision for a familiar piece of music, he or she has to have the skills to show that vision to the judges and audience.Preparing to perform When creating art on ice, skaters need to be open to trying movements that might not be comfortable. You have to play with new ideas about what the body can do and what would be great with music, Lori said. When theyre learning a new program, most skaters feel freer dancing in private, Lori said. Once theyve learned the choreography, however, skaters cant wait to get out there and perform in front of the world. It is the most beautiful, fantastical feeling once you master it, Lori said. Once youve conquered the program for the first time, you want more and more and more.Having Beautiful FunJoin in the fun Skating is great exercise and tons of fun, Lori said. It can be fun to put on a piece of music and interpret it. When Lori was young, her mom bought a record album with 100 classical hits. Lori would take it to the rink and skate to it even though she didnt know how to do the movements. I was living in the dance and creating the movement. It is about jumping high and spinning and moving the body in different ways. It can be so much fun with friends to practice with.

As the Winter Olympics in Sochi draw near, Wagner is a U.S. womens figure skating star to watch. She has won two U.S. national championships (2012 and 2013), a Four Continent title (2012), and currently holds a No. 3 world ranking. Growing up in a military family, Wagner moved multiple times. But she found a permanent home on ice, where she began figure skating before starting to school. And they can watch her jump and spin in Sochi and maybe glide to the medal stand. TM

The College of Central Florida plans to offer a bachelors degree in nursing beginning in August 2014 to help meet growing local and national demand for more nurses with higher degrees. CF estimates tuition for upper division nursing courses at CF will cost $4,715, which is more than 40 percent less than a student would pay if they earned their degree at a four-year public university such as the University of Florida. Dr. Barbara Lange, CF dean of Health Sciences, said the appeal of CFs BSN degree is more than convenience and affordability. Our nursing program is well-established and more successful than many other state and national programs, said Lange. Our students passing rates on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses are much higher than state and national averages. In 2012, for example, our passing rate was 96 percent, but the state average was 87 percent and the national average was 90 percent. The 120-credit hour degree, which will feature both classroom and online classes, is open to students who live in Marion, Citrus and Levy counties. Interested students must attend an online information session before they can apply, and students must attain an active, unencumbered Florida RN license prior to the second semester of upper division nursing courses. Applications for the inaugural fall 2014 cohort must be submitted by April 15. For information about the programs, contact Laurie Saputo at 352854-2322, ext. 1586, or Nancy Cintron at 352-8542322, ext. 1433.

The BOCC will rename the Hernando Railroad Way Park to the Alexander Family Park in their honor. The Alexander family has a long history in Citrus County, with their roots tracing back to the late 1800s, with Joyce Bell Henderson and her husband, Clyde Alexander Sr., who migrated from Douglas, Ga. Clyde Alexander followed in the footsteps of his father, Thomas Alexander, who worked in the phosphate mining community of Citrus County. The Alexander family is the largest Afro-American family living in the Hernando area. They have always opened their home to the poor and needy, helped anyone in trouble, housed the homeless, fed and clothed the needy, and buried deceased loved ones for the families who did not have insurance. The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners also proclaimed Dec. 17 as John Sullivan Day in Citrus County. Sullivan began working as the director of courts at the Citrus County Courthouse on March 3, 1997. He is a native Floridian, raised in Tampa, and strives to make visitors to the courthouse feel welcome by his consistent efforts to accommodate their needs.

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY15, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.When an average golfer gets a birdie (one under par), it is anticipated that he will make a mess of the next hole. But not a pro. However, what do you think is the worst score by a pro immediately after making a hole in one? In golf, you try to place your ball well for your next shot. This also applies in bridge. Are your cards meshing well or badly with partners hand? Look only at the North hand. South opens one heart, North raises to two hearts, and South rebids two spades. What should North do now? Before you answer that question, what does Souths two-spade rebid show? It indicates a hand too strong to pass out two hearts, but too weak to jump to four hearts. He is showing four spades and a hand with six losers (here, one spade, one heart, three diamonds and one club). South is asking North to look in particular at his holdings in the majors. North has a useful spade queen, four trumps (a nine-card fit is much better than an eightcarder) and an ace. Yes, he has only seven high-card points and 4-3-3-3 distribution, but since his hand has those three pluses, he should jump to four hearts. Agreed, on a bad day, declarer will lose three diamonds and one heart, but the odds make this game worth bidding, and it succeeds here. Late last year in Australia, at a European tour event (yes, in Australia), one golfer had a hole in one. On the next hole, a par four with no water, he had an 11.

He often told me that if I thought there was something better out there to not let the door hit me on the way out. I finally took him up on it, and it turned out to be the best advice he ever gave me. For the past three years, Ive been dating Ted, also divorced. He is smart and successful, and we are perfect together in every way. Here is the problem: Ted is not ready to marry. He told me his marriage ended because there was no passion. He fears if we live together, the physical attraction we feel for each other will die. Ted and I spend weekends together and travel often, but then he goes home to his house. I dont want to live alone for the rest of my life. But if Ted isnt ready after three years, I doubt he ever will be. His reluctance hurts me deeply and brings back all those feelings of unworthiness from my marriage. Is it time for me to walk? Thought Id Found the One Dear Thought: Ted may be skittish about commitment, but that is his issue, and he is making it yours. Some women are perfectly content with a no-strings relationship with someone they find compatible. But if you are looking for marriage, you will have to set Ted free and look elsewhere. We realize you have put a lot of effort, energy and emotion into this relationship, but if the end result makes you unhappy and anxious, Ted is not the right person for you. Dear Annie: I must reply to all the mothers-in-law who write to you and cant understand why they are treated so unfairly by their daughters-in-law. My mother-in-law has been incredibly mean to me from the first time I met her. She deliberately does not include me in many of the family functions. She promises my children outings and never follows through. She and her daughter have been the nightmares of my life. This has gone on for years now, and I would rather not have any contact with them. My husband feels I should be the better person and just ignore their behavior. But, Annie, I can only do this for so long before the better course is to simply walk away. The Other Side of the Story Dear Other Side: Has your husband stood up for you with his family? Does he say, My wife must be invited to these family functions, or I will not attend? Does he tell his mother that the children no longer believe her promises and it hurts her relationship with them? If he thinks sweeping Moms behavior under the rug will make things better, he is mistaken. It is cowardly. Mom will learn to respect you as a member of her family if her son makes it clear to her that this is not optional and there are clear consequences. We cannot guarantee that she will change her tune, but we can absolutely assure you that if your husband does not do these things, nothing will ever improve and you are right to limit contact. Dear Annie: Tired of Doing All the Holiday Planning said she is going to stop hosting family holiday dinners because no one helps her clean up. In our home and those of our friends, the cook does not clean up. Everyone else does. Tired should tell her kids and grandkids to clear, wash, dry and put the dishes away. If Dad is in the picture, he should pitch in, too. Some of my fondest times involve the camaraderie when my buddies and I clean up after one of our wives meals. (We are lousy cooks.) Guys need to get with the program and show their wives they appreciate the effort of putting the meal together.
