SIDIBE Staff writerThe sheriffs offices Tactical Impact Unit has shut down another major methamphetamine lab the second this week. Dallas Eugene Mattox III, 25, of South Rock Crusher Road, Homosassa, was arrested Thursday and is facing charges of possession with intent to sell a controlled substance; trafficking in meth, drug paraphernalia and possession of a listed chemical. His bond is $650,500. When investigators arrived at the Mattox residence, they found him in the rear of the property near a shed and asked for permission to search the yard. According to Mattoxs arrest affidavit, he agreed and deputies quickly identified the telltale signs of a meth lab. They saw PH test strips and starterfluid cans in a burn pile, and in the shed they noticed a small light bulb fashioned into a smoking pipe. The residue in the crude pipe later tested positive for meth. Detectives also found a smoking boat made out of aluminum foil. They also found bags full of lithium batteries, ChronicleThe Citrus County Sheriffs Office wrapped up its weeklong effort Friday to find the remains of a Crystal River woman who went missing 20 years ago. They did a thorough search of the area, but did not find anything, said Heather Yates, CCSO spokeswoman. They (detectives) are not going to stop, but they would love to get more tips about the case, Yates said. Investigators spent this week sifting through dirt and rock on a halfacre swampy area near Balloon Street in Crystal River looking for the remains of Margo Register, 19, who went missing Jan. 4, 1994. A witness came forward last summer and said he remembers Margos husband taking him to her corpse at the site. Cadaver dogs also homed in on the same venue. Margos husband, Willis Register, has long been a suspect in her disappearance since the pair was last seen walking together to the A to Z store on State Road 44. Willis has denied involvement in his wifes disappearance and claims he went into the store and left Margo outside and when he returned she was gone. Three months after Margos disappearance, Willis was arrested and later convicted of killing his friend and badly hurting two others. He is currently serving two life terms, plus 30 years in prison. The tipster/witness whose information led to the search was also friends with Willis Register and told investigators Willis brought him to Margos body to help get rid of it. The witness reportedly refused and fled the scene. He reportedly was interviewed 20 years ago but was reluctant to give information, but time and his conscience made him come forward voluntarily, according to detectives. Anyone with tips is encouraged to contact crime stoppers at 888ANY-TIPS (888-2698477). Search turns up no info on missing woman Margo Registermissing since Jan. 4, 1994. Dallas Mattox IIIfaces trafficking in meth charge. See METH/ Page A2 Homosassa man faces trafficking charge Springs visits soar 2013 saw large increase in visitorsA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThe past year has been a banner one for those involved in the manatee-viewing business. Nearly 11,000 more people visited King Spring and Three Sisters Springs in 2013 than they did in 2012. December 2013 alone outpaced the previous year by nearly 3,000 visitors, according figures released by the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. The numbers are compiled from figures supplied by Special Use Permit (SUP) holders dive shops, boat rental shops and guided tour operators. Refuge officials believe the spike in visitors has a lot to do with media publicity showcasing the beauty of the springs. I think that National Geographic article in April has helped boost the numbers in 2013 especially in November and December because the height of manatee season is mainly from December to March of each year and this was mentioned in the article, said Ivan Vicente, refuge spokesman. But even before the article, the numbers for January, February and March were great, too. Actually, they were record numbers. If we go by what happened in December, this year (2014) could be another big PATFAHERTY Staff writerConsolidations by CenterState Bank will affect its two branches in Citrus County. The Inverness location will be consolidated with the office in Bushnell and the Crystal River location will be consolidated with the office in Spring Hill. David Donato, the banks community president for Citrus and Hernando counties, described it as a business decision that came out of a long and heartfelt process. It was an economically hard decision to make, he said. We have been in Inverness for over 10 years. Its a tough call in our industry, in any industry. Employees and customers have received notice that the retail part of the business at those locations will close April 15. Tenants at the sites will continue in business, and future plans for the bank buildings in Inverness and Crystal River are pending. Bank shifting services out of Citrus County PATFAHERTY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVERThe U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission clarified its role in future activities, costs and policies surrounding the Crystal River area nuclear plant. NRC representatives held a public meeting Thursday night, following up on Duke Energys submission of its Post-Shutdown Decommissioning Activities Report (PSDAR). The purpose was to discuss and receive public comments on the report, which Duke submitted early last month. It includes a description of decommissioning activities, a schedule and a cost estimate. There are also details on environmental impacts, management of spent nuclear fuel and site restoration. While the NRC does not have to approve the PSDAR, it reviews the report to determine if it meets regulatory requirements.

Actually, in the three months preceding the April spread in National Geographic, more than 3,000 more people visited the area than in 2012. For the year including the summer months, 125,605 visitors used the rental and for-hire services in 2013 compared to 114,767 reported in 2012. Vicente said the figures do not reflect missing reports from businesses, which he suspects to be no more than 2,000 extra visitors. There are 28 dive shop/tour operator SUP permit holders and 10 outfitters (kayaks and paddleboards). The past years recordsetting numbers also show another surprising trend, according to Vicente the jump in rentals. While nearly 3,000 more people in 2013 opted for guided tours, 8,000 more people opted to rent their own vessels to take in the scenes or swim with the manatees. Those numbers were a little interesting. It shows people really want to be more active and do their own thing, I guess, Vicente said. According to Vicente, in 2013 the refuge had more than 200,000 visitors whenprivate vessel visits to Three Sisters Springs (open house events) are added into the mix. More than 75,000 private vessel visits were estimated at Parker Island alone between April and October, and in excess 100,000 private vessel visits are estimated at Three Sisters Springs each year.

Mattox also was observed dropping aluminum foil from his pocket to the ground as investigators continued their search. When the search moved to the house, Mattox stopped the search when investigators asked to look into his bedroom. One detective noticed a Pyrex plate on top of his bedroom closet before they were told they no longer could proceed. Detectives waited and sought a search warrant and resumed gathering evidence. They noticed the plate in the bedroom was now missing. Investigators reportedly questioned Mattoxs grandmother, who said her grandson instructed her to get rid of the plate. The grandmother had the plate in the kitchen with water in it. Detectives were still able to recover meth residue after getting rid of the water. In Mattoxs bedroom, investigators found more meth-producing materials. In the residences shed, detectives also noticed that one of the cabinets they tried to search had a lock on it. They eventually recovered the key to that lock from a batch of keys found on Mattox. In the locked cabinet, they found more manufacturing supplies. Mattox was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com. METHContinued from Page A1 The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott is proposing to wrap Floridas popular back-to-school sales-tax holiday around two weekends more than triple its current length of time as part of his re-election year proposal to cut taxes and fees by $500 million. Scott announced Friday he wants lawmakers to approve a 10-day sales tax holiday in August. The extended tax-free period is the latest of the budget proposals Scott has rolled out in advance of the 2014 legislative session. Weve done this before, but this is a 10-day one, so its longer, Scott said during an appearance at the Florida Chamber of Commerce Insurance Summit in Orlando. The extended holiday would reduce state revenue by an estimated $60 million, Scott added. During the holiday, shoppers would not have to pay state and local sales taxes on select clothing under $100, school items such as pens and notebooks that cost less than $15, and computers and related electronic equipment costing less than $750. The back-to-school tax holiday has ranged from three to nine days since lawmakers introduced it in 1998. The discount wasnt provided during the recession in 2008 and 2009, and has been set at three days the past four years. With a budget surplus of about $1 billion and an election on the horizon, Scott is seeking about $500 million in tax and fee reductions, the bulk of which would come from rolling back a hike in vehicle registration fees approved by the GOP-dominated Legislature in 2009. Business groups quickly praised Scotts latest proposal. An opportunity economy will allow people to keep more of their money and families will have more money to invest in their future, Florida Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President David Hart said in a newsrelease. John Fleming, a spokesman for the Florida Retail Federation, said his group wants the tax-free time to become permanent instead of requiring legislative approval every year. Shoppers often use the savings to make additional purchases that are not covered by the exemption, which helps cover any slowdown that can occur from people holding off on making purchases until the tax exemption begins, Fleming said. There might some shifting of spending, but it really does increase sales overall, he said. The retail federation also supports a hurricane holiday measure (SB 362) that would lift sales tax on select storm-related gear at the beginning of hurricane season, and Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnams proposed tax break on Energy Star appliances that cost less than $1,500. Scott proposes two tax-free weekends Rick Scottgovernor of Florida.

Kennedy, who defeated incumbent Lou Miele four years ago, said he is eager to stay with the school board. I love what I get to do, he said. I love being an advocate for children, parents and the school system. Kennedy said he learned from prior board members what to expect before he took office. He then tried to understand the role board members, the superintendent and district officials have before barging into conversation. I wanted to be taken seriously, he said. I wanted to earn respect of my peers and the administrators. That means being respectful. Kennedy, who has two children in Citrus County schools, said his model was veteran board member Pat Deutschman, who, although her sons are now grown, also speaks from a parents viewpoint. Its been a blessing to learn from her, Kennedy said. I love bringing a parents voice to the discussion. Hes also the voice of technology. When Citrus Springs Middle School seventh-graders became the first to have iPads last year, Kennedy was there when they were handed out to excited youngsters. This year all middle school seventh-graders have iPads, as well as eighth-graders at Citrus Springs Middle. The devices are also being used in some form at Crystal River and Citrus high schools, plus Crystal River and Lecanto primary schools. Within five years, all students will have access to what Kennedy calls individual digital learning devices that could include iPads, laptops or tablets. As a kid this is what we dreamed of someday, he said. This is what kids are doing today. Kennedy said he enjoys seeing the positive impact technology is having in the classroom. I see kids excited about learning, he said. I see teachers excited about teaching, even with all their challenges.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or email@example.com.

A bigger Dragon Boat Festival at Lake Hernando in the works PATFAHERTY Staff writerOrganizers promise the special St. Patricks Day weekend edition of the Lake Hernando Dragon Boat Festival will be bigger, with more variety than the previous incarnation. Dragon boat racing has come of age in Citrus County, according to Dieter Hollweck, who has nurtured and promoted the sport. It took us four years to get to this point, said Hollweck. Theres history here. The sport made its Lake Hernando debut last November, attracting 30 dragon boat teams. The numerous food vendors, arts and craft dealers, display booths, entertainment and hundreds of spectators turned Lake Hernando Beach Park into daylong waterfront festival. Were trying to make it even better, said Andy Smith with Citrus County Parks and Recreation, which is coordinating and promoting the event. We learned a lot for from the last one and have some new ideas. Previous dragon boat races in Citrus County have used the traditional, roughly 40-footlong craft, which carry 20 paddlers and a drummer. But the upcoming race will also feature smaller dragon boats that carry 10 paddlers and a drummer. Smith said this opens the event up to smaller teams, ideal for small businesses and organizations. Our goal is 50 teams, he said. The event has already attracted interest from teams in The Villages, Top of the World, Ocala, Tampa, South Florida, Citrus Hills, the National Guard, local high schools, community groups, medical groups and businesses. In addition to the actual boat racing, teams will be competing for best-dressed drummers and team names. The festival is currently accepting team entries, and teams will get a practice session scheduled ahead of the event. Smith said they still need more sponsors and food vendors and are making a special effort to attract more arts and crafts vendors with a reduced fee. A portion of the net profits will benefit Feeding America Tampa Bay, which works with the Citrus Food Bank. The festival will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 15. Admission is free, but there will be a $5 charge for parking. Each parking ticket will be entered in a drawing for half of the total parking fees collected.

Todays Highlight in History: On Jan. 18, 1911, the first landing of an aircraft on a ship took place as pilot Eugene B. Ely brought his Curtiss biplane in for a safe landing on the deck of the armored cruiser USS Pennsylvania in San Francisco Harbor. On this date: In 1778, English navigator Captain James Cook reached the present-day Hawaiian Islands, which he named the Sandwich Islands. In 1957, a trio of B-52s completed the first non-stop, round-theworld flight by jet planes, landing at March Air Force Base in California after more than 45 hours aloft. Ten years ago: A suicide truck bombing outside the headquarters of the U.S.-led coalition in Baghdad killed at least 31 people. Five years ago: A star-studded pre-inaugural concert took place on the National Mall, featuring Bruce Springsteen, Bono and Beyonce, with President-elect Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, in attendance. One year ago: Former Democratic New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was indicted on charges that hed used his office for personal gain, accepting payoffs, free trips and gratuities from contractors while the city was struggling to recover from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. (Nagin, who later pleaded not guilty, faces trial in late Jan. 2014.) Todays Birthdays: Movie director John Boorman is 81. Singersongwriter Bobby Goldsboro is 73. Actor-director Kevin Costner is 59. Rock singer Jonathan Davis (Korn) is 43.

performance-based, allowing the licensee (Duke) up to 60 years to complete decommissioning, explained Bruce Watson, NRC branch chief. We have 17 reactors, including Crystal River, in some stage of decommissioning. Marc Ferdas, NRC branch chief, said the agencys three decommissioning objectives are that the spent fuel is safely stored, that the safety of the public and workers is ensured and that the process conforms to federal requirements. Estimated costs, who will pay and what will happen to the used fuel and the plant site got the most public interest. Duke maintains a decommissioning trust fund for CR3, as the nuclear plants is known, currently estimated at $779 million. The estimated cost of the decommissioning funded from the trust is $1.18 billion, according to Duke spokeswoman Heather Danenhower. This includes approximately $265 million for spent fuel management, $862 million for license termination and $52 million for site restoration. Another aspect of the process is construction of a dry cask fuel storage facility, expected to be completed in 2016. However, Danenhower explained, construction costs of approximately $94 million for the dry cask facility are not included in the decommissioning cost estimate and not paid for by the trust fund. That cost, which would have occurred anyway if CR3 had been retired, will fall on the customers as part of the 2013 settlement agreement approved by the Florida Public Service Commission. Local resident Harry Oakes, a retired engineer from the plant, questioned whether there will be enough money in the trust to actually clean up the site. NRC economist Michael Dusaniwsky said there are no guarantees but that theres a reasonable assurance the funds will be available through growth over time. However, taxpayers or ratepayers could be called on to make up any fund shortage. Duke has stated it believes no additional charges will be required from Florida customers to supplement the trust fund. Inglis Town Commissioner Sally Price said she is concerned about fuel storage and the costs being passed on by the PSC. Its a lot worse than I thought, said state Rep. Dwight Dudley, D-St. Petersburg, who questioned both the available funding and the whole nuclear plant situation.

Cold brings potential carbon monoxide danger Special to the ChronicleThe Florida Department of Health in Citrus County urges the public to take precautions to prevent carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. As temperatures drop, the potential for CO poisonings rises. CO is a highly poisonous gas produced by burning fuels such as gasoline, natural gas, kerosene, charcoal and wood. The risk of illness or death increases with the level of CO in the air and the amount of time exposed. Dangerous CO levels can result when home appliances are not properly maintained or when used incorrectly. Improper use of generators or portable space heaters can silently poison you and your family without your knowledge. said Dr. Kendra Goff, state toxicologist for the Florida Department of Health. Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that can literally be fatal within minutes. It is invisible, tasteless, odorless and non-irritating, which is why taking proper precautions is vital and having sufficient working CO detectors in your home is critical. Since symptoms of CO poisoning are similar to those of the flu, food poisoning or other illnesses, you may not think CO poisoning is the cause. The common signs and symptoms include headache, nausea, weakness, abdominal discomfort/pain, dizziness and confusion. Other signs and symptoms may include blurred vision, numbness and tingling, ataxia (loss or lack of muscular coordination), irritability, agitation, chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations, seizures and loss of consciousness. Anyone who suspects symptoms of CO poisoning should go outside the home or building without delay and seek prompt medical attention. If a person has collapsed or is not breathing, call 911 for emergency medical assistance immediately from a safer location such as outside or from a neighbors home. Children, pregnant women and individuals with heart conditions are most vulnerable. Tips to help prevent CO poisoning: Never use a gas stove or oven to heat the home. Never burn charcoal inside a house, garage, vehicle or tent, including in a fireplace. Avoid using unvented gas or kerosene heaters in enclosed spaces, especially sleeping areas. Install and use fuelburning appliances according to manufacturer instructions. Inspect the exhaust system of each fuel burning appliance every year, including chimneys, flues and vents. Check for blockage, holes and disconnections. Have fuel-burning appliances inspected and serviced annually by a licensed contractor. Never leave an automobile running in a garage, even with the garage door open. Do not leave the rear window or tailgate of a vehicle open while driving. CO from the exhaust can be pulled inside the car, van or camper. Never use a portable generator or a fuel-powered tool indoors or in other enclosed or partially enclosed areas. Always place portable generators outdoors on a dry surface far away from doors, windows, vents and air conditioning equipment that could allow CO to enter. Orient the generator so that it is placed with the exhaust port pointing away from the home. Install battery operated CO alarms or plug-in CO alarms with battery backup inside the house according to manufacturers installation instructions or NFPA 720: Standard for the Installation of Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detection and Warning Equipment. Install only CO alarms that meet the UL 2034 or the CSA 6.19 standards. Replace CO alarm batteries once a year and test alarms frequently. Replace CO alarms every five years or as often as recommended by the alarm manufacturer. For more information about suspected poisoning emergencies, call the Florida Poison Information Center at 800-2221222. To learn more about indoor air pollution and public health in Florida, visit www.floridahealth. gov/healthy-environments/ indoor-air-quality/ index.html or call the Radon and Indoor Air Program at 800-543-8279. Due to the arrival of cold weather, health officials urge the public to take precautions to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Never use gas stove or oven to heat the home. Avoid using unvented gas, kerosene heaters or generators in enclosed spaces. Install battery-operated CO alarms or plug-in CO alarms with battery backup inside the house For the RECORD ON THE NET For more information about arrests made by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, go to www.sheriff citrus.org and click on the Public Information link, then on Arrest Reports.

CR band shell to be unveiled Clemson official tapped as next FAU president Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The search for a new president at Florida Atlantic University, which had the potential to upend the political landscape in the state, ended on Friday after trustees selected a top official with Clemson University for the job. University trustees meeting in Boca Raton voted to pick John Kelly, who is currently vice president for economic development at the South Carolina school. Kelly was selected over two other finalists, including former U.S. Sen. George LeMieux. The final trustee vote was unanimous, but an informal poll showed that trustees were split 8-5 between LeMieux and Kelly. LeMieux, who is chairman of the board of the Gunster law firm, turned out to be the second candidate with strong political ties to lose out on his bid for the post. A week earlier a search committee eliminated Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater from consideration. Atwater, a Republican, was cruising to an easy re-election when he decided to become a candidate for the job in early January. But after the surprising vote he was forced to quickly announce he would seek a second term after all. If Atwater had gotten the FAU job it would have triggered jockeying among both political parties. Many trustees cited LeMieuxs political connections and his longstanding ties to South Florida as an asset that could help FAU compete against some of the states more high-profile universities. During his final interview LeMieux was forced to answer questions about his relationship with former Gov. Charlie Crist. LeMieux was chief of staff for Crist, but did not back the governor when he switched parties and ran for the U.S. Senate as an independent in 2010. LeMieux is backing Gov. Rick Scott for re-election over Crist. John Kellycurrently vice president for economic development at Clemson.
Associated PressWASHINGTON Michelle Obama turned 50 on Friday and promptly showed off her AARP card. Excited to join Barack in the 50+ club today ... check out my @AARP card! the first lady told her more than 600,000 Twitter followers in a post that included a photo of her smiling and holding up the red-and-white membership card that bears her name. President Barack Obama turned 50 in 2011. Other than the Twitter pic, the first lady spent her big day out of sight, with no public appearances after back-to-back events at the White House earlier this week. It was probably a good way to spend the birthday, laying low and resting up for a big birthday dance party the president has been planning for Saturday night at the White House. The White House isnt releasing details but word did leak out that guests have been told to show up prepared to dance. Her husband has been spending a lot of time and energy planning it, Valerie Jarrett, a senior White House adviser who is close to the Obamas, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. Hes so excited and he wants to make sure that the celebration that she began in Hawaii continues through the weekend. Mrs. Obama got an extra week in Hawaii, her husbands home state, after her familys two-week holiday vacation there. It was an early birthday gift from the president. The first lady said last month she wasnt certain how she would celebrate her birthday but that whatever she did might involve some dancing, perhaps a little Dougie a hip-hop move. Birthday wishes poured in over Twitter and Facebook, where women posted messages along with pictures of themselves wearing pearls, necklaces and bracelets, in tribute to Mrs. Obama, who often wears them. Associated PressDUNMORE, Pa. Between the mysteriously banging doors, the odd noises coming from the basement, and the persistent feeling that someone is standing behind them, homeowners Gregory and Sandi Leeson are thoroughly creeped out by their 113-year-old Victorian. So when they put the house in northeastern Pennsylvania up for sale last month, they advertised it as slightly haunted. Then things got REALLY weird. There were calls from ghost hunters. An open house attracted lots of curiosity seekers, but no legitimate buyers. And a former resident came out of the woodwork to tell the couple that when he was a kid, he found a human skull in the basement the same basement whose door Sandi Leeson once barricaded because she swore she could hear the clicking of a cigarette lighter emanating from the subterranean depths. Its enough to make her husband wonder whether he did the right thing when he playfully wrote about the homes spooky charms: Slightly haunted. Nothing serious, though, says the listing on Zillows real-estate site. It goes on to describe 3:13 a.m. screams and the occasional ghastly visage in the bathroom mirror. The listing attracted local and national media attention. Now the Leesons just need an actual buyer for the fourbedroom home, on the market for $144,000. I tried to word it with a little bit of a sense of humor, said Greg Leeson, a 35-year-old who works in information technology, but I dont think it has helped with marketing. Were not really getting very many interested buyers. Were getting a lot of nonsense people. Spring should bring more traffic. But if it doesnt sell, Leeson said they might consider renting it out by the night to folks looking for spooky thrills. While Leeson concedes the home has a creepy vibe, he doesnt believe in ghosts. And his wife? I definitely think theres a spirit or a ghost in the house, just from my personal experiences, she said.

Japans last WWII straggler dies Associated PressTOKYO Hiroo Onoda, the last Japanese imperial soldier to emerge from hiding in a jungle in the Philippines and surrender, 29 years after the end of World War II, has died. He was 91. Onoda died Thursday at a Tokyo hospital after a brief stay there. Chief government spokesman Yoshihide Suga on Friday expressed his condolences, praising Onoda for his strong will to live and indomitable spirit. After World War II, Mr. Onoda lived in the jungle for many years and when he returned to Japan, I felt that finally, the war was finished. Thats how I felt, Suga said. Onoda was an intelligence officer who came out of hiding, erect but emaciated, in fatigues patched many times over, on Lubang island in the Philippines in March 1974, on his 52nd birthday. He surrendered only when his former commander flew there to reverse his 1945 orders to stay behind and spy on American troops. Onoda and another World War II holdout, Sgt. Shoichi Yokoi, who emerged from the jungle in 1972, received massive heroes welcomes upon returning home. Before and during the war, Japanese were taught absolute loyalty to the nation and the emperor. Soldiers in the Imperial Army observed a code that said death was preferable to surrender. Onoda refused to give up, despite at least four searches during which family members appealed to him over loudspeakers and flights dropped leaflets urging him to surrender. In his formal surrender to Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, Onoda wore his 30-year-old imperial army uniform, cap and sword, all still in good condition. After the initial sensation of his return home wore off, Onoda bought a ranch in Brazil. He later was head of a childrens nature school in northern Japan. I dont consider those 30 years a waste of time, Onoda said in a 1995 interview with The Associated Press. Without that experience, I wouldnt have my life today. Still, he showed a great zeal for making up for years lost. I do everything twice as fast so I can make up for the 30 years, Onoda said. I wish someone could eat and sleep for me so I can work 24 hours a day. The son of a teacher, Onoda worked for a Japanese trading firm in Shanghai after finishing high school in 1939. Three years later, he was drafted and trained at a military academy. In December 1944, he was sent to Lubang, about 90 miles southwest of Manila. Most other Japanese soldiers surrendered when U.S. troops landed on Lubang in February 1945, though hundreds remained missing for years after the war. As he struggled to feed himself, Onodas mission became one of survival. He stole rice and bananas from local people down the hill, and shot their cows to make dried beef, triggering occasional skirmishes. The turning point came on Feb. 20, 1974, when he met a young globe-trotter, Norio Suzuki, who ventured to Lubang in pursuit of Onoda. Suzuki quietly pitched camp in lonely jungle clearings and waited. Oi, Onoda eventually called out, and eventually began speaking with him. Suzuki returned to Japan and contacted the government, which located Onodas superior Maj. Yoshimi Taniguchi and flew him to Lubang to deliver his surrender order in person.

Seeing the early innings of a multiyear rejuvenation, Credit Suisse upgraded the drug developer with an outperform rating. The networking company, which helps utilities upgrade their grid infrastructures, said it could lose money in the fourth quarter. The fallout from the electronics retailers dismal holiday sales continued as UBS and Goldman Sachs both issued downgrades. The conglomerate met the expectations of Wall Street analysts in the fourth quarter, which was seemingly not good enough. The package courier took extraordinary steps to meet holiday demand, leading it to trim its guidance for quarterly results. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell modestly Friday, edging further back from its record high set earlier in the week.

Interestrates Auto shows not just for guys Associated PressDETROIT Women now buy nearly half the new cars in the U.S., a sharp increase compared with a generation ago, and the auto industry is trying to demonstrate that its keeping up with the times when it showcases the latest models to the public. Auto shows now offer cooking demonstrations, private tours and an increasing number of male models to appeal to female visitors. But that hardly means the industry has shelved a staple of nearly 100 years of auto shows: having female models preening beside the latest sports car or SUV. The shows, which are run by dealers, say theyre trying to attract more women with events like fashion shows. The North American International Auto Show in Detroit doesnt keep track of visitors by gender, but the New York International Auto Show says 40 percent of its 1 million visitors in 2013 were women, up from 29 percent two years before. Spokesman Chris Sams said the show made a point of reaching out to women, using more females in its ads and hosting special parties and tours. It even held a contest to find the best place to store a purse in a car. But contrast that with the scene at media previews for this years Detroit auto show, which opens to the public Saturday. General Motors CEO Mary Barra, who just this week became the first female head of a major automaker, walked the floor in a conservative black suit past Corvette models in skimpy dresses and leather jackets. Young women in towering heels handed out breath mints around the corner from plunging necklines at Infiniti. Face it. Automotive is a mens industry and its always a novelty to be among the women who are there, said Brandy Schaffels, the editor of AskPatty.com, an automotive site for women. But as females gain more income and buying power not to mention corner offices automakers may have to rethink using the short skirt to grab attention. Some automakers have already done away with models altogether. At Hondas stand in Detroit, the focus was on the brands new Fit subcompact and a futuristic fuelcell car called the FCEV. The company says it tries to appeal to the broadest range of customers at its show stands. Across the way, Ford set up a sample assembly line in its exhibit, which is staffed by both men and women. Fords Chief Operating Officer, Mark Fields, said women and younger buyers, in particular, come to auto shows to get educated. Fields said Ford no longer uses scantily clad female models like it did 15 years ago. The companys data shows that women buy 41 percent to 42 percent of new cars each year, up from 20 percent in 1980. Among buyers 30 and younger, women account for 56 percent of new car purchases. Thats how we make sure auto shows stay relevant, Fields said. But there are still plenty of theatrics at the Detroit show, which is expecting more than 800,000 visitors this week. Over at Dodge, models in tight white dresses and shiny go-go boots strike poses in front of an orange Challenger muscle car. Bo Puffer, who hires the models that the Chrysler Group uses at its 71 U.S. auto shows, is unapologetic. A good-looking person next to a good-looking car is a formula thats going to work for us no matter what brand it is, Puffer said. Associated PressGeneral Motors Co. said new CEO Mary Barra will get a base salary of $1.6 million per year as she takes over the global automaker. GM said in a filing on Friday that Barra will also be eligible for $2.8 million in short-term incentives. Her pay would climb further if GM shareholders approve a new long-term incentive plan at their next annual meeting. Stock and option awards make up the bulk of CEO pay at GM and many other publicly traded companies. Dan Akerson, who retired as CEO Wednesday, had total 2012 pay of more than $11 million. That included a base salary of $1.7 million and $9.3 million in stock awards. The federal government limited executive pay at GM after the Detroit company took bailout money in 2008 and 2009. But those restrictions are gone after the government sold the last of its General Motors Co. stock on Dec. 9. Barra started as CEO on Wednesday. She has worked at GM since she was 18, and got an engineering degree from what was then known as General Motors Institute. Most recently she held what is widely considered to be the most important job at GM: senior vice president for global product development. She has also been a plant manager, executive director of engineering and head of human resources. GM said Friday that it expects Akerson will continue to work there for less than a year, with prorated pay. He will get up to $4.7 million per year as a senior adviser, including a cash salary of $1.7 million.

OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, JANUARY 18, 2014 Skip bureaucracy, open springsOnce again the publics chain is being yanked by inept, power mad bureaucrats, for the sake of, what? I refer to your recent front-page article about Three Sisters Spring. We are being told that it wont be publicly accessible for at least another year. They need to build a bridge and road to allow ingress to and egress from the area. Hmm, doesnt the photo that you ran with the article show a fully functional road, with a vehicle on it? And what about the access to the area from Kings Bay Drive which is currently gated? Open the gate, allow entry and spare me and the other already hard-pressed citizens the expense of a bridge (from and to where?), and a road which already exists. The funds to build this fantasy already exist (you say), and wont pose a burden to the taxpayers. Where do you think these funds originally came from? Anything in this country built, repaired or improved upon has been funded by taxpayers. Enough is enough. Open the spring to the public, and try, try to effectively manage it. Paul Loeb Crystal River PALM BEACHWith its iconic paintings created by 75 Italian artisans three-quarters of a century ago, four oceanfront pools, nine restaurants, 10 tennis courts, 11 boutiques, 25 luxury beach bungalows, 36 holes of golf, a half-mile of private beach and 2,000 employees, the Breakers, here on an ocean bluff on Floridas coast, stands as a robust symbol of many things: The vision and creativity of a classic American entrepreneur. The affluence and excess of an international leisure class. The aspirations of a striving American middle class. And the growth of a remarkable American peninsula once regarded as a hopeless backwater overrun by mosquitoes and mobsters, cracker cowboys and crackpot real-estate swindlers. From the dreamy 1565 delusions of Ponce de Leon to its 1819 acquisition from Spain to its 1860s role as supplier to the Confederacy (it sent beef, pork, fish, fruit and salt to rebel troops during the Civil War) and beyond, Florida once was stuck at the literal and imaginative periphery of the country, a place of limitless potential but little prosperity. As late as 1880, the entire state had a population smaller than Lincoln, Neb., the 72nd biggest city in the country, has today. Then Henry M. Flagler built his hotel beside the Palm Beach breakers, and the guests flocked in by private Pullman cabins. Eventually he extended his rail line south all the way to Miami and finally, amid nearly unendurable building conditions that included three hurricanes, to Key West. That, and the phenomenal growth of the orange trade Florida production reached 10 million boxes in 1915 on the way past 230 million a century later provide the origins of one of the most remarkable stories of population and economic growth in history. So much so that maybe today, maybe next week, maybe next month, Florida will surge past New York and become the third biggest state in the country, its population now arching toward 20 million people, surpassed only by California (38 million) and Texas (26 million). It was the signature Florida combination of audacity (Flagler and his great rival, Henry Plant, were not alone) and agriculture (marijuana ranks No. 2 behind oranges, followed by sugar cane, grapefruit and potatoes) that set the state on its growth trajectory. But today it is immigration (from northern states and Latin nations) and imagination (not so much Disney World as high tech), retirement (no state income or inheritance tax) and recreation (some of the best state parks in the country plus baseball spring training) that sustain the growth. And health care. The state logged 11.4 million days in the hospital in 2011, according to the American Hospital Directory. What does all this growth mean for Florida and for the rest of the country that it is leaving behind? Some predictable results: More political power (New York lost two seats, Florida gained two, after the 2010 census, with more changes to come after 2020). More federal money (because Washingtons funding formulas apportion dollars to states on the basis of population, and because Floridas growing elderly population brings increased Medicare expenditures). And some surprising ones: A growing environmental movement in a state that once was regarded as an ecological disaster zone. (The influx of young people is bringing a fresh environmental focus.) An increasingly nuanced demographic face that is a hint of the America to come. (Puerto Ricans joining the more established Cubans and South and Central Americans, along with the rise of Caribbeans in the states black population and a growing Asian population.) But perhaps the most important effect is psychological: a sunny economic outlook to match the states climate. Population growth creates economic demand, especially in new construction much of the realestate wreckage of the Great Recession is in the past and in the general sale of goods and services. Growth reduces risk, says Stanley K. Smith, who directs the population program in the University of Floridas Bureau of Economic and Business Research. If youre thinking of buying a house in a growing community, that makes it easier to sell the house later, and if youre a business thinking of expanding, population growth reduces the risk that the expansion wont pan out. For a generation, American political scientists looked to California for a glimpse of the politics of the future. Before long they very likely will look to Florida. One reason: Two out of every three Floridians were born elsewhere, so this is the nations new melting pot. Maybe even more important: In this state, which possesses most of the minorities in the large umbrella categories, there is more country-of-origin politics playing out than anywhere else. It is the nations biggest swing state, and that is not going to change, says Susan MacManus, a University of South Florida political scientist. If anything, that means Florida is the best bellwether for the country at large. The in-migration patterns show that the people coming here are from a wide variety of places. Not that this is some kind of paradise, tourist brochures notwithstanding. When John Gunther wrote his landmark Inside U.S.A. in 1947, he noted in Florida a freakishness in everything from architecture to social behavior unmatched in any American state. Thats still true. Two thirds of a century ago, Florida led the nation in syphilis; today only four states exceed Floridas rate, with incidences since 2005 twice as high in Broward County (Fort Lauderdale) as in the rest of the state. The famous guide to the state produced by the New Deal-era Works Progress Administration noted that many Floridians resent intrusion and (are) suspicious of unfamiliar things and persons, particularly strangers who do not speak (their) idiom. Thats not true anymore in a state that is no longer a winter colony of Hialeah, jai alai and hibiscus. This decade, Florida, which was adding a population the size of Miamis every year, still will add a population about the size of Orlandos annually, with the smaller (but sustained) rate projected for the future growth, state officials believe, that will enable Floridians to provide sufficient services without undue stress on roads, schools, health facilities and the environment. Our growth, even in the Great Recession, never went below zero, says Amy Baker, the Florida Legislatures chief economist. We didnt have a dip, just a slowdown. So now were back to where we were.David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Post-Gazette (firstname.lastname@example.org, 412 263-1890). Follow him on Twitter at ShribmanPG.

The Citrus County jail is already operated by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), and the company has proposed buying the property and charging the county a perdiem rate for housing prisoners. While selling the property would do little to change the basic operation of the facility, it does have the potential to further restrict county options in dealing with the company should there be major issues of disagreement regarding how the jail is run. Even as the county is considering this decision, the governor of Idaho has announced that his state will take control of its largest prison from CCA. The Idaho prison was built in 1997, and since its construction it had been run by the company that now runs the Citrus County jail under contract. The decision to take control of the Idaho prison from CCA came on the heels of news reports alleging various improprieties at the prison and lawsuits alleging rampant violence, understaffing, gang activity and contract fraud. And the governor making the decision is an avowed advocate of privatization. In 2008, he floated legislation to allow private companies to build and operate prisons in the state and import out-ofstate inmates. He has also suggested privatizing another Idaho prison. When that governor decides to take over the prison run by a private company, it raises fundamental questions that our commissioners need to answer as they decide on selling or keeping our jail. County officials also need to get the experience of other counties that have moved away from private operation of their jails, such as nearby Hernando County. Four years ago, Hernando County decided to take over control of its jail from CCA after inmates sued claiming sexual harassment and the county alleged significant maintenance issues at the facility. CCA had run the jail for 22 years before the contract was terminated. The county would benefit by studying the results of this action before making any final decision on our jail. Since incarceration is authorized through government action, the county also needs to evaluate whether having a private corporation both own and operate the local detention facility is desirable on economic and social grounds. These are not easy questions, and they are not easily quantified, but they must be considered. Selling or keeping the jail is far more than an economic decision, and more than economic analysis is needed before a final decision is reached.

OPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, JANUARY18, 2014 A9 The NHS: Dogma vs. experience BELFAST, Northern IrelandWhile the Obama administration offers life support to its Affordable Care Act, in the UK a growing number of people are asking whether its time to pull the plug on the National Health Service (NHS), which is in critical condition. For many years the UK media have carried stories that not only bode ill for the future of government-run health care, but also continue to serve as a code blue warning to the U.S. as to what might be in our future if we decide to go down that road. Writing in The Daily Telegraphunder the headline, Its time to make difficult decisions about the NHS, columnist Judith Woods says, The NHS, dying on its feet for decades, is in a critical state. The promised injection of cash may stabilize it temporarily, but the chances of a full recovery are nil. She is not alone. A headline in The Guardian, declares the NHS on the brink of extinction. While in America there are concerns about an insufficient number of younger people signing up for Obamacare, in the UK among the latest causes for concern is a plan that theGuardian writes ... would only see new drugs licensed for NHS if judged to be a benefit to wider society. Does this sound like a close relative of eugenics? Let us not talk of death panels, or should we? In the UK, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence decides whether new medicines should be approved. Might it someday also come down to some official deciding who gets treatment and who doesnt? Changing the name of the decisionmaking entity doesnt alter the intent, or the outcome. Already, according to theDaily Mail, citing a report by the European Commission (EC), Britain has fewer doctors per person than nearly all other European countries. There are just 2.71 doctors for every 1,000 people. The EC reports the UK ranked th out of 27 countries in the EU, behind some of the poorest countries, including Bulgaria, Estonia and Latvia. General practitioners are paid 1,500 pounds (about $2,500) a shift to cover nights and weekends in overburdened ERs. Can one see this crisis looming on Americas horizon as the current supply of doctors proves inadequate to treat a flood of new Obamacare patients? Whats more, stories about incompetence and corruption within the NHS, once the exception, are now common. Blood donors turned away by clinics incompetence, says a headline in theDaily Mail. The NHS was supposed to reduce the number of people who seek treatment in emergency rooms. Instead, the BBC reports, some patients visit them as many as four times a week. Citing data from 183 sites obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, BBC News writes, ...nearly 12,000 people made more than 10 visits to the same unit in 2012-13. A small number of those just over 150 attended more than 50 times. The same has proven true for Obamacare. Obama said that coverage would result in fewer ER visits, when in fact studies already show that the newly covered are visiting ERs more frequently. An editorial in The Daily Telegraphsaid, The NHS is cursed by a devotion to dogma. People have come to expect free care and the cost of free is breaking the system. The editorial recommends everyone visiting a GP should be required to pay 10 pounds ($16) to discourage those with minor ailments from making a trip to the ER. Dr. Mark Porter, chairman of the council at the British Medical Association, has said that if the NHS were a country, it would barely have a credit rating. He warns: A growing and aging population, public health problems like obesity, and constant advances in treatment and technology are all contributing to push NHS costs well above general inflation. If the NHS cant be sustained in the UK, why would anyone believe an American experience will be different? The ACA, of course, is not nationalized health care (people pay insurance premiums, after all) but some think it could evolve into that. If its a question of dogma vs. experience, experience should prevail. The UK experience with nationalized health care can teach America something.Readers may email Cal Thomas at email@example.com.

Thank you for supporting the Friends of Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park Inc., and thank you Sandy from the Garden Center, for helping me load all the plants in my van.Virginia Svoboda Volunteer gardens supervisor and board memberTime to stand up for AmericaI was barely 16 in 1946, too young for World War II, but I saw the gold stars on the windows and doors of the homes in my town, gold stars that indicated a loved one had died for our country. I was convinced that we were fighting a just war, one that we would win. And we won! And I saw the guys come back and become leaders in the community and build businesses and thrive. Later, as a junior in college, I was about to get drafted into the Korean War so, as a Navy brat as we were called, I joined the Navy to help win another war. After training in San Diego and then at Bremerton Naval Hospital, I ended up in Honolulu at Tripler General Hospital, a facility run by the Army that had Army, Air Force and Navy doctors. As a Navy corpsman, I worked in the operating room, handing instruments to the doctors who were taking care of the guys wounded in Korea, kids my age with grievous wounds from fighting for what we were told was a just war. And we were not allowed to win. Now, as an old man looking back, what do I see but a war in Korea that we were not allowed to win, one in Vietnam we were not allowed to win, one in Iraq that we had won but gave away, one in Afghanistan that we are not allowed to win and one in Syria that is on the horizon and we will probably not be allowed to win. I see no gold stars on the windows or doors of those who lost loved ones, for their sacrifices seem to be accepted as the cost of this country being a good guy in the community of nations. I say, enough is enough! Isnt it time to tell the world if you mess with us, you will lose? If you threaten us you will die. If you dont like us, so be it. If you take our money, you will act as a friend or you will be considered an enemy. Isnt it time for the United States to assert the leadership that a great country, a free country that wants only the best for the rest of the world, to stand up for the freedoms expressed in our most revered founding documents? Isnt it time to stand up for America? David W. Martin Homosassa Thank you for our adoption busThe staff and volunteers at Citrus County Animal Services would like to thank our county commissioners, especially Commission Chairman JJ Kenney, for our new adoption bus. We would also like to thank Lon Frye, transportation director, for making the bus transfer a reality; Buddy Crump and Glenn Piper at Fleet Management for removing the seats to make room for the animals; and most of all, a really big thank you to Jennifer Worthington, Marketing & Graphics Design at the Visitors and Convention Bureau, for the extraordinary effort she put forth to create the amazing artwork that adorns the adoption bus from end to end. Starting with a plain white people-mover, Jennifer turned the bus into a true showstopper that now travels the roads of Citrus County loaded with adoptable pets. Simultaneously, while creating the artwork that appears in the Countys Visitors Guide and working on her many other projects, Jennifer drew the faces of the dogs and cats that peer from windows, peek around corners, and smile with the wind in their faces on our beautiful adoption bus. The mobile adoption bus is used to transport dogs and cats to county-wide events, bringing adoptable animals to the citizens who wait to adopt them. Our adoption bus has recently been seen at the K-9 Karnival, Bark in the Park, Tractor Supply, and the Dragon Boat Festival. It will be front and center at the Best Friends Fest, Feb. 1 at the County Auditorium, where volunteers will work with the animals to show them off and help them find their fur-ever home. Animal Services staff and volunteers alike are all so proud of our beautifully decorated adoption bus, and we want to thank everyone who had a hand in making it a reality. You can find the schedule for our adoption bus on our website at www. citruscritters.comPattie Amon operations manager Citrus County Animal ServicesThe Christmas cardFrom The Spirit of Christmas past, present and potential: The last time a Dickens Christmas journey truly happened to me, I was a child. So, to experience this adventure again as a much older, more mature child (my mothers term of endearment, we never should grow up at Christmas) became an unexpected Advent. I enjoy receiving Christmas cards, possibly more so than the norm, and arranging them in a Christmas-tree pattern or lining them along the fireplace mantle. My standard list of faraway family and friends is checked off the Christmas ballyhoo by a bargain assorted box of 25 Christmas cards. I address them, sign the standard greeting prior to a quick lick, stamp and outgoing mail disposal. A week before Christmas, the arrival of a unique sachet from relatives in Bethel, N.Y, addressed to my household in old style cursive changed my Scrooge-like to-do forever. After careful extraction of the card, my holiday joy bloomed, as a homemade, of fine quality, stodgier than my assorted box of cards emerged before my eyes. Aligned with the cards top edge, a gold ribbon in good shape for the number of years it clearly has seen accenting an even older Christmas postcard held in place by self-adhesive photo corners. An aged sprig of preserved evergreen bordered the left side. Our creative northern kinsfolk reused a 1915 assortment of items to make their Christmas cards this year. What a delightful gift and what a wonderful idea to bring Christmas past into the present. The original greeting still readable on the back of the 98-year-old card, of course in a beautiful script now, possibly considered a dead language. The salutation on the front spelled Merrie differently from our presaged y of today. The sound and meaning carry on however with little change. I placed this card within a nativity arrangement of tiny statues on the foyer escritoire, in the midst of the three wise men, because to me the love, time and thought represented gold, frankincense and myrrh. A long journey for the Magi ending with the shepherds leaving their fields, the angels singing, all to greet the one they loved. The cards simplicity fit well in the display. My mused Christmas spirit wondered if the trip for the admirers of the baby Jesus had any similarity to the holiday travel woes of today. Surely winter weather delays are not recorded anywhere, else why would the sheep be in the field. Yet, overcrowding a definite, and no doubt price exploitation of common use items existed nothing new under the sun. There are some Christmas I can be in person with my faraway family, and some I cannot. This year, scheduling conflicts with my sons military college he is a freshman, the top brass held on to the newbies as close to Christmas as they could. Welcome to the real world my son. For my Christmas in the future, having drank from the milk of human kindness served by the spirits of Christmas past and present, all the estate-sale boxes will be gleaned. I will preserve and reuse cards from relatives and friends passing along this joy I feel from receiving such a simple gift. So, even if I cannot be with the ones I love, I can share the Christmas cheer. I tell of this tale to those who will read it, hoping that for you each new year bears gifts from the old.Kate Lavorgna Oak VillageRemembering the Battle of the BulgeI had a close friend, Charles Nash of Charlotesville, Va., who had just graduated from high school. He was patriotic like most young men at that time, and joined the services to fight the Nazis. The Battle of the Bulge was a horrible battle, and Charles told me if it hadnt been for Gen. George Patton and his tanks, who drove all day and all night to save them, he would not have come home. He said they had given them up for dead. If you watch the Military Channel, you will find that the general was considered one of the greatest and most courageous leaders of that time. Yes, he slapped a young man who was crying and he later asked his troops to forgive the son-ofbitch who did such a thing. Of course, he meant himself. I have seen the movie, Patton many times and each time I think how very fortunate we were to have had such a general on our side.Ruth J.

I have called myself and spoke to management about the lights at Ottawa and (County Road) 486. When I come home from work at 10:30 or 11 at night, the lights will turn red, stopping the traffic on (C.R.) 486 even though theres nobody turning into or out of Ottawa. I have even talked to a manager who said those new traffic cameras there are tricky. My thinking is, if they cant fix them, get rid of them. Im tired of sitting there with no traffic coming out of Ottawa. And I have seen it go through it and then turned my back and looked at the camera and looked at the light and it turns red again even though theres no traffic. Somebody has got to fix these things. The same thing happens at Annapolis, where I live. Ive seen it turn red, stopping traffic on (C.R.) 486 with nobody coming in or out of Annapolis. County commissioners, we paid money for those. Lets get them fixed. Please have somebody from road maintenance learn how to fix them.Return shopping cartWhen you are finished shopping at (a grocery store), please take your grocery cart back into the store or take it to the corral lane in the parking lot.

Obama signs spending billWASHINGTON President Barack Obama has signed the $1.1trillion spending bill that funds the federal government through the end of September. Obama signed the measure Friday, the day before federal funding was set to run out. He was joined at a conference center by aides who did much of the work negotiating it. The compromise package passed both houses of Congress overwhelmingly this week. It funds every agency of the federal government and also scales back automatic spending cuts that hit the Pentagon and major domestic programs last year.Surgeon general: End smokingWASHINGTON One in 13 children could see their lives shortened by smoking unless the nation takes more aggressive action to end the tobacco epidemic, the U.S. Surgeon General said Friday even as, astonishingly, scientists added still more diseases to the list of cigarettes harms. Enough is enough, acting Surgeon General Borish Lushniak declared at a White House ceremony unveiling the 980-page report that urges new resolve to make the next generation a smoke-free generation. The clock is ticking, Lushniak said. We cant wait another 50 years. On the 50th anniversary of the landmark 1964 surgeon generals report that launched the anti-smoking movement, far fewer Americans are smoking about 18percent of adults today, down from more than 42percent in 1964.NTSB: Pilots confused by lightsWASHINGTON Southwest Airlines pilots who recently landed at the wrong airport in Missouri have told investigators they were confused by the small airports runway lights, believing it to be a larger airport in nearby Branson, the National Transportation Safety Board said Friday.

Afghan Taliban attack kills 16KABUL, Afghanistan A suicide bomber blew himself up outside a Kabul restaurant filled with foreigners and affluent Afghans, while two gunmen snuck in through the back door and opened fire Friday in a brazen dinnertime attack that killed 16 people, officials said. The fatalities included four U.N. personnel. The Taliban claimed responsibility within an hour of the attack against La Taverna du Liban, part of a stepped-up campaign of violence against foreign and government interests to send a message that the militants are not going anywhere as the U.S.-led coalition winds down its combat mission at the end of the year. Kabul police chief Gen. Mohammad Zahir Zahir said the 16 people killed were all inside the restaurant. Four United Nations personnel were among those killed, U.N.

Assads opponents were skeptical about the offer, which was floated by Syrian Foreign Minister Walid alMoallem during a visit to Moscow. A member of the main Western-backed opposition dismissed the government overture as last-minute maneuvering to please Damascus Russian allies, while a rebel commander in Aleppo described such a truce in the civil war as nearly impossible.BVI signs deal with cruise linesTORTOLA, British Virgin Islands The British Virgin Islands signed an agreement Friday with two major cruise ship companies expected to help boost the territorys sluggish cruise tourism sector.

The deal also gives preferential berthing to both cruise lines, a move that angered Carnival. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressPresident Barack Obama gestures Friday as he speaks about National Security Agency (NSA) surveillance at the Justice Department in Washington. The president called for ending the governments control of phone data from millions of Americans. JULIEPACE AP White House correspondentWASHINGTON Tightening the reins on the nations sweeping surveillance operations, President Barack Obama on Friday ordered new limits on the way intelligence officials access phone records from hundreds of millions of Americans and moved toward eventually stripping the massive data collection from the governments hands. But Obamas highly anticipated intelligence recommendations left many key details unresolved, most notably who might take over as keeper of the vast trove of U.S. phone records. Final decisions on that and other major questions were left to the Justice Department and to intelligence agencies that oppose changing surveillance operations, and to a Congress that is divided about the future of the programs. If fully implemented, Obamas proposals would mark the most significant changes to the surveillance laws that were passed in reaction to the Sept. 11, 2011, terror attacks. While Obama has said he has welcomed the recent spying debate, its unlikely to have happened without the national and international backlash following a wave of leaks from former National Security Agency analyst Edward Snowden. For now, the phone records will continue to reside with the government. But the NSA will need to get approval from the secretive Foreign Surveillance Intelligence Court each time it wants to access the data, a more cumbersome process than currently required. Exceptions will be made in the event of a national security emergency, officials said. Responding to outrage overseas, Obama pledged on Friday to curb spying on friendly allied leaders and to extend some privacy protections to foreign citizens. The proposals appeared to ease some anger in Germany, which had been particularly incensed by revelations that the NSA had monitored the communications of Chancellor Angela Merkel. Despite the firestorm at home and abroad, Obama robustly defended the intelligence communitys role in keeping the nation safe. But he said the U.S. had a special obligation to ensure that its muscular spying apparatus was not trampling on civil liberties. The reforms Im proposing today should give the American people greater confidence that their rights are being protected, even as our intelligence and law enforcement agencies maintain the tools they need to keep us safe, he said during a speech at the Justice Department. Privacy advocates, who have pushed for ending the phone record collections altogether, criticized the presidents restrictions as insufficient. The intelligence community appeared publicly content with his plans. On Capitol Hill, the response was decidedly mixed. A rare cross-section of lawmakers from both parties, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, DCalif., and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., called for greater reforms. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, blamed the president for failing in the past to properly explain the importance of certain intelligence gathering practices. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., who head their chambers intelligence committees, called on the president to send them specific legislation with his proposed changes. Obamas announcement capped a six-month White House review triggered by Snowdens flood of disclosures about the scope of U.S. spying. But by ordering further review of key issues, Obama ensured that his speech would hardly be the final word in the resurgent debate over balancing privacy and security. The most glaring omission in Obamas announcement was any recommendation on where Americans phone records should be kept if they are no longer housed by the government. A presidential review board recommended moving the data to the phone providers or a third party, but both options present obstacles. The phone companies strongly oppose the expense and potential liability of holding the data, and no credible third-party option has emerged. Administration officials also raised the possibility of replacing the bulk phone collection program with new surveillance methods that would negate the need to store the data long-term. Q&A: NEW NSA RULESQ: Why did President Obama decide to make changes? A: The president has been under pressure since Eric Snowden took an estimated 1.7million documents from the NSA and gave them to journalists around the world. The U.S. public, Congress and allies overseas were shocked to learn the extent of the NSAs post9/11 surveillance. Soon after Snowdens disclosure in June, Obama promised to review the system that has changed rapidly as technology improved. On Friday, Obama defended the work of the U.S. spying apparatus as necessary to protect Americans and international allies. He left the programs mostly intact, but added restrictions. Q: Do the changes happen right away? A: No. Some involve altering the USA Patriot Act, and that requires Congress to draft, debate and pass legislation. Other changes wont be carried out until the administration resolves big logistics questions. In some cases, Obama ordered the Justice Department and spy agencies to figure out how to implement new privacy protections, which will take time. Q: Will the government get out of my phone records? A: For now, the NSA will keep collecting and storing call data. The program gathers the phone numbers called and the length of conversations, but not the content of the calls. Obama said the NSA needs to tap those records sometimes to find people linked to suspected terrorists. But eventually, he wants the bulk data to be stored somewhere out of the governments hands, to reduce the risk that the information will be abused. Q: So where will my records go? A: Thats not yet decided. Obama told Attorney General Eric Holder and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to find a solution within 60 days, about the time the NSA surveillance programs are up for their quarterly reauthorization by a secret national security court. That could mean arranging for phone companies to store the records, although the companies already are balking at that. The government could create a new thirdparty entity to hold the records, or come up with some other plan. In the meantime, Obama ordered two immediate changes: Analysts hunting through data will have to stay a little closer to the original suspected terrorist or organization. They will be able to look at communications two steps away, instead of three. The administration will require a special judges advance approval before intelligence agencies can examine someones data. The NSA has been able to decide for itself whether it has reasonable cause to run a query. Q: What about the NSA reading my email or watching my online activities? A: The bulk collection of online data is supposed to target only people outside the United States, as part of national security investigations. But it does end up sweeping up information about some Americans in the process. Obama asked Holder and Clapper to consider whether new privacy safeguards could be added.Deadline set President Obama tightens reins on surveillance programs Intel chairs ask Obama to send bill on changes Associated PressWASHINGTON The chairs of the House and Senate intelligence committees praised President Barack Obamas speech laying out changes to U.S. spying programs. But they questioned whether Obamas proposal to end the governments control of phone data is necessary. In a joint statement, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Republican Rep. Mike Rogers said they agree the records program is critical. They urged Obama to send Congress legislation with his proposed changes so that lawmakers can debate them.

The Hurricanes used strong defense to bolt out to an early double-digit lead on their way to a 60-37 district victory. Citrus girls basketball team locks up No. 1 seed by dominating CR 60-37 C.J. RISAK CorrespondentINVERNESS Citrus did just what coach Dave Hamilton wanted. For that matter, so did the Hurricanes opponent, Crystal River. In a game that decided the top spot in the District 5A-6 girls basketball race, Citrus scored the first 15 points and never allowed the Pirates to get closer than six in posting a 60-37 triumph Friday at Citrus. The Hurricanes finish a perfect 6-0 in 5A-6 to secure the top seed for the upcoming district tournament; they are 18-2 overall. Crystal River finishes second in the district race at 4-2, falling to 17-4 overall. It was the same thing as the last time, said Pirates coach Jason Rodgers, referring to their 55-44 loss to Citrus on Dec. 13. We had to take care of the ball and execute on offense, and we didnt. Rodgers was battling the flu as he negotiated the sideline, and what he saw in those first six minutes did not make him feel any better. By the time Katelyn Hannigan stepped to the free-throw line and converted one of two shots, her Crystal River team was already down 15 points, with only 92 seconds left in the first quarter. By quarters end, the Pirates trailed 17-3, having converted just one of 11 shots. Worse, they had 15 turnovers in the first period, with their first six possessions ending with a turnover. Im glad this game is over, Hamilton said. Crystal River, without a doubt, has got a very good ballclub. You cant take them lightly and we didnt. I know it sounds like a broken record, but once again it was our defense that won this game. And we put 60 points on the board. To the Pirates credit, they did manage to crawl back into it in the second quarter, starting the period with a 10-2 run that included three-pointers by Brianna Richardson and Megan Wells. That trimmed their deficit to 19-13 with 3:10 left in the half. But the Hurricanes took command from that point on. Kiersten Weaver scored five points during a 10-0 run to end the half, pushing their lead to 29-13 at the intermission. An 8-2 start to the third quarter gave Citrus a 22-point advantage, and two triples from Shenelle Toxen in that period insured the Hurricanes dominance. It was 49-26 heading into the fourth, with Citrus making it 54-26 with 5:45 left. Offensive execution was certainly the Canes pressure way to win Citrus coasts to 64-49 boys hoops victory over CRJON-MICHAELSORACCHI Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER When faced with pressure, theres two polar opposites on how to deal with it: either thrive or crack. The Citrus High School varsity boys basketball team crowded its Crystal River counterpart all night long on the Pirates home court and were rewarded with 21 turnovers during a 64-49 victory Friday night. Weve been doing that to everybody, Citrus head coach Tom Densmore said. When weve switched to manto-man, which was during our Christmas tournament, weve been able to stick with it from that time. If we can play defense like that and stay out of foul trouble ... teams cant handle that, Densmore added. The Hurricanes improved to 18-2 overall and 5-1 in District 5A-6 while Crystal River fell to 4-13 and 0-5.

B2SATURDAY, JANUARY18, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Reed shoots another 63 in Humana Challenge Leads by two strokes entering weekend play Associated PressLA QUINTA, Calif. Before Patrick Reed earned his PGA Tour card in December 2012, he successfully Monday-qualified for six events and made 12 starts that year. That experience, with wife Justine at his side as his caddie, has come in handy in the first two rounds of the Humana Challenge. For sure, Reed said. Its a birdiefest, this tournament is. ... Its pretty easy to get in that Monday-qualifying mindset, due to the fact that youre playing three different courses. So, the first day, its like, All right, well, lets see how we do against the guys in my course there. And the same thing every day. A day after shooting a 9-under 63 at PGA Wests Arnold Palmer Private Course to take the lead, Reed had another 9-under 63 down the road Friday at treelined La Quinta Country Club to stretch his advantage to two strokes over Brendon Todd. Its great to have that feeling that you can go out and shoot 63, said Reed, the Wyndham Championship winner in August. And to actually do it two times in a row shows that what we have done during the offseason and what were doing now is working. Justine is pregnant with their first child, and her brother, Kessler Karain, is subbing as Reeds caddie. Justine has walked every hole with her 23-year-old husband this year and plans to rejoin him inside the ropes after the baby girl arrives around Memorial Day. Justine got a good look at his best shot of the day, a high 5-iron approach on the par-5 fifth that landed softly and rolled to 4 feet to set up an eagle. He also had eight birdies and his lone bogey in 36 holes. That tee shot on 5s not easy, Reed said. You have to hit a perfect high cut around that tree and if it goes straight, youre actually through the fairway. You have to hit a hook around those trees. And when I hit a perfect drive like that, had a perfect number for a 5-iron to the left flag. When I hit something three-quarters or 85 percent, its normally a little draw, so I just aimed it in the middle of the green and hit it up there to 4 feet. That was kind of just perfect for me. La Quinta has been that kind of place for the former Baton Rouge, La., high school champion who helped Augusta State win NCAA titles in 2010 and 2011. When Reed earned his PGA Tour card back in 2012, it was at PGA West. Todd had a 63 on the Palmer course. Hes the only player without a bogey. Obviously, both days were really solid, Todd said. Bogey-free was huge. ... Before I knew it, I was at 7or 8-under with a few to play, feeling like I should birdie every hole. ... The weathers been so good, Im not surprised to see what Patrick did. The temperature climbed into the 80s and it was so calm the ponds looked like glass, the water as still as the plastic swans PGA West uses to scare away geese. Ryan Palmer was third, three strokes back at 15-under, after a 65 at La Quinta. He also made a short eagle putt on the fifth hole. Overall, it was another great day, said Palmer, coming off a tie for eighth in the Sony Open in Hawaii. Another great finish, hanging in there, staying strong. Charley Hoffman, the 2007 winner, was 14-under after a 66 on PGA Wests Jack Nicklaus Private Course. He had five straight birdies on the front nine. Theres water, theres trouble if you short-side yourself, but if youre hitting good shots, the greens are good and you can make a bunch of birdies, Hoffman said. Bill Haas and James Driscoll were 13-under. Haas, the 2010 winner, had a 66 on the Nicklaus course, and Driscoll shot 63 at La Quinta. Charlie Beljan was another stroke back, shooting 64 on the Nicklaus course. Matt Every and playing partner Will MacKenzie were 11-under in a group that included Kapalua winner Zach Johnson. Every settled for a 68 on the Palmer course after playing an early five-hole stretch in 6-under with four birdies and an eagle. MacKenzie had a 66. Johnson had an eagle, six birdies, two bogeys on his first two holes and a double bogey in a 68 on the Nicklaus course.Rocco Mediate leads Champions Tour openerKAUPULEHU-KONA, Hawaii Rocco Mediate took the first-round lead in the Champions Tours season-opening Mitsubishi Electric Championship. Mediate shot a 9-under 63 at Hualalai Golf Course, playing the first seven holes in 6-under with four birdies and an eagle on the par-5 seventh. He added birdies on Nos. 10, 14 and 18 to finish a stroke ahead of 2012 winner Dan Forsman. Mediate won twice last year in his first season on the 50-and-over tour after winning six times on the PGA Tour. Forsman had an eagle, seven birdies and a bogey. Associated PressPatrick Reed chips to the ninth green Friday during the second round of the Humana Challenge at La Quinta Country Club in La Quinta, Calif. Reed shot a second straight 63 for the lead entering today. Blackhawks stop Ducks Associated PressCHICAGO Marian Hossa scored two goals, and Kris Versteeg and Bryan Bickell also tallied to lead the Chicago Blackhawks past Anaheim 4-2 on Friday night to end the Ducks eight-game winning streak and hand them only their second loss in the past 20 games.

If Dunnellon defeats the Pirates in both teams district finale Tuesday, then the Tigers and Hurricanes would need a coin flip to decide who receives the No. 1 seed in the district tournament at Crystal River starting Feb. 4. After losing to Dunnellon early, the best we could hope for is finishing 5-1 and we did that, Densmore said. The last five games, were playing at a really high level. Citrus senior point guard Devin Pryor paced the Hurricanes with a game-high eight steals to go along with his team-high 18 points. Desmond Franklin added 15 points and four steals for Citrus. Citrus raced out to a 13-0 lead less than halfway through the first quarter as Pryor and Desmond Franklin combined for seven steals in the opening eight minutes. The Hurricanes ended the first quarter up 21-4, went up to 29-4 three minutes into the second quarter and held a 33-14 halftime lead. A three-pointer by Shaun Frasier to open the third quarter cut the Citrus advantage to 33-17, but the Hurricanes reeled off 14 straight points to go up 30 47-17 with 3:12 remaining in the period. The Hurricanes athleticism was on full display during the drubbing, with four emphatic dunks thrown in. Among the quartet of jams was an alley-oop by Sam Franklin off an inbound pass from sophomore guard Zach Saxer. The two-handed throwdown came in the third quarter when Sam Franklin got a clean break to the rim, caught the ball above the cylinder and slammed it in violently. Sam Franklin contributed six points, eight rebounds and three blocks, but Densmore said the junior forwards impact extends beyond his own personal statistics. Since (Sams) been with us, our scoring has gone up 16 to 18 points a game, Densmore said. And its not that hes scoring those for us, but its the energy he brings to the game. Up by 30 heading into the final period, Densmore played mostly reserves. Crystal River got a career-high 20 points from guard John Parry including 15 in the last eight minutes and received 11 points from senior captain Hunter Roessler. Speaking of impact players, the Pirates were missing senior guard Ty Reynolds, who was attending practice ahead of an East-West high school football game he is scheduled to play in at IMG Academy in Bradenton on Monday. While Reynolds has been slowed by multiple injuries this season, its hard to think his ballhandling skills wouldnt have made a difference. (Ty) hasnt been with us a lot this year, so we played the hand we were dealt, Crystal River coach Steve Feldman said. We didnt roll over, we kept playing hard. Considering we are struggling mightily to score the ball, it was nice to see John Parry come alive, Feldman added. Desmond Simmons netted 10 points for Citrus while senior reserve guard Javian Clark added nine off the bench. Crystal River plays Tuesday at Dunnellon while Citrus is at Nature Coast on Wednesday.Jon-Michael Soracchi is the Chronicle sports editor.

Four players reached double figures, led by Toxen with 15. Micah Jenkins and Weaver added 13 apiece, and Treleasha Simmons contributed 11. In contrast, not a single Pirate reached double figures in points; Richardson led them with nine and Wells netted eight. Jasmyne Eason, the Pirates leading scorer, was limited to five. We concentrate (our defense) on what our opponent does best, and for them, thats shoot the three, Hamilton explained. We try to take a team out of their comfort zone. Crystal River had chances, to be sure, but the Pirates shot miserably, connecting on just 6-of30 second-half floor shots (20 percent), that coming after they converted just 5-of-30 in the first half (16.7 percent). Combined with 28 turnovers, their hopes of tying Citrus for the top spot in 5A-6 were out of reach. We put way too much pressure on ourselves, Rodgers said, his Pirates having lost eight straight to Citrus. We were trying way too hard to make things happen, and when you do that, you make mistakes. NO DOUBTContinued from Page B1 SPORTS BRIEFWarriors rebound with big victory over St. FrancisThe Seven Rivers Christian girls basketball team scored a 64-26 home victory over St. Francis Catholic from Gainesville on Friday night in Lecanto. Warriors junior guard Alyssa Gage netted a game-high 26 points and added 11 rebounds in the triumph. Teammate Tessa Kacer tossed in 16 points and also had seven steals. Seven Rivers senior center Alexis Zachar had 16 points, 13 rebounds and four blocks as well. The girls played really well defensively, Warriors coach Gary Dreyer said. It was a strong team effort.

B4SATURDAY, JANUARY18, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Lecantos rally falls short vs. Dunnellon Panthers girls hoops drops 51-44 contestSTEVEMCGUNNIGLE CorrespondentLECANTO As canhappen with any teamenduring growing pains, a comeback attempt fell just short and faded down the stretch, as the Lecanto girls basketball team watched District 5A-6foe Dunnellon pull away Friday night for a 51-44victory. The Lady Panthers (4-17 overall, 0-6 in district play)turned a 31-20 early second half deficit into a one-point lead their only advantage of the game when Cheyenne Biggs opened the fourth quarter with a steal under the Dunnellon basket and converted on a layup to make it 38-37 Lecanto. In the third quarter, sophomore captain DeeAnna Moehring was key, twice feeding Dedra Magee for baseline jumpers and scoring five of her 13 points on the night during a 17-5 Lecanto run before Biggs gave the Panthers the lead to open the fourth. She (Moehring) is one of our most efficient scorers, so she has a big role, Lecanto head coach Brittany Szunko said. But she also gets everyone involved, its not just her scoring. But Dunnellon (8-15, 2-4) responded down the stretch, hitting big shots at key moments to regain control of the game and hold on. Sierra Oliver (14 points, nine rebounds) put back her own miss from the high post to give the Tigers the lead back for good at 39-38. Then following a pair of Panther turnovers, Tyra Thomas found Christine Bauer in the corner for a three-pointer with just over four minutes remaining. After Kayln Holders score down low brought Lecanto to within 42-40, Thomas again fed Bauer, this time for a baseline jumper. Moehrings offensive rebound and score again brought the Panthers to within two, but a Lecanto rebound of a Dunnellon miss was ripped away by Thomas, leading to a midrange jumper from Oliver to give the Tigers a 46-42 edge with 1:30 remaining. Thirty-five seconds later, Thomas banked-in three from the wing proved to be the dagger, allowing Dunnellon a 49-42 leadto secure the win down the stretch. But of Lecantos valiant run, Szunko tried to find a bright side. Its about getting everyones confidence up. To take the shots they take in practice, to handle the ball, and to execute the fundamentals of the game, Szunko said. Moehring had seven rebounds and four assists to go with her team-high 13 points, while Taylor Mitchell (10 points, five rebounds) and Magee (10 points, four points) also contributed for the Panthers. Thomas had a gamehigh 19 points for Dunnellon, connecting on3-for-4 from three point range. Lecanto hosts Hernando at 7 p.m. Tuesday. year putting shots in net and did what they were supposed to do against the Pirates. We just need to finish on our chances, Warren said. Lecanto held a 1-0 lead at halftime before Chapmans backwards header eight minutes into the second half gave his team the 2-0 lead. The Pirates remained determined and, after Bass scored, a surge of momentum overtook the young team that has struggled all season with consistency. However, just minutes later, Pirates midfielder Reese Bresson was pressured by Molinelli on a Lecanto send that had drawn Pirates goalkeeper Kyle Kidd away from goal. Bresson tried tapping the ball back to Kidd but Molinelli intercepted the pass, dribbled around Kidd and slipped the ball in for the 3-1 lead. It was all Panthers after that, with Pirates coach Bobby Verlato saying of the play, That took all the momentum away. Lecanto plays Vanguard on Wednesday in the District 4A-4 quarterfinals; Crystal River faces Central in the District 3A-7 quarterfinals. The Pirates were shut out in three of its last four games. Crystal River forward Caleb Russo said the team is not thinking enough about ball control and setting up scoring chances, but will be prepared for first-round district opponent Central. Were ready to bring it to them, Russo said. Were ready to give it all we got. BOOTContinued from Page B1 East-West college football today Lynch looks to impress scouts Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Jordan Lynch welcomes the opportunity to show hes a better NFL prospect than some pro scouts might suspect. The Northern Illinois quarterback was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2013 and did a masterful job of running the Huskies offense over the past two seasons. Still, he entered practice for todays East-West Shrine game at Tropicana Field feeling he has to prove hes capable of being successful on the next level. Overall, I hope I showed the scouts that I could throw the football. That was one of the biggest knocks on me, said the 6-foot, 216-pound Lynch, who led Northern Illinois to a BCS bowl berth as a junior and 24-4 record in two years as a starter. I run the ball well. But I can throw it, and I wanted to show them that, he added. The receivers here are studs and all of them stick out. They bailed me out a few times in the last couple of days. Lynch rushed for 1,920 yards and 23 touchdowns this season, while also posting some impressive numbers throwing the ball. He completed 62.6 percent of his passes as a senior for 2,892 yards, 24 TDs and just eight interceptions. He threw for over 3,100 yards, 25 TDs and six interceptions in his only other season as a starter. I didnt think much about the individual accolades because it was always about the team, said Lynch, wholl play for the East today. Ive always set high expectations for myself, and if I really thought about it, I knew things like that were possible, he added of his accomplishments in college. But it was a great journey and I have to thank my coaches, teammates and family for their help in making it possible. Lecanto boys cant complete comeback at Dunnellon, 70-63SEANARNOLD CorrespondentDUNNELLON Lecanto turned in a far more competitive showing than its earlier 22-point home loss to Dunnellon, as the Panthers trailed just 65-63 with 21 seconds left after a pair of converted free throws by sophomore Travis McGee in the DHS gym Friday. But junior Desmond Frazier, who sunk five three-pointers and went 5 for 5 at the foul line for a game-high 32 points, and his Tigers outlasted the Panthers for a 70-63 win. The victory keeps the Tigers (11-7, 4-1), which have only Crystal River remaining on their district schedule, on pace to force a coin flip to decide the top seed between themselves and Citrus in the District 5A-6 tournament. Lecanto (9-7, 2-4) will be the No. 3 seed. With nine seconds left on the clock and the Panthers still down by two, LHS senior point guard Thomas Vilardi went for the kill, launching a 3 from the corner that, for a moment, looked good before rimming out and essentially sealing Lecantos fate. I wanted us to go for the kill right there, LHS head coach Jeff Anderson said. I didnt want to go into overtime. I thought (Vilardi) got a good look, and it rolled around twice before falling out. Dunnellon went 5 for 6 at the charity stripe in the final seconds. Anderson was called for a technical foul with two seconds remaining. In a game where the teams were near equal in field-goal shooting percentage Lecanto shot 35 percent and Dunnellon finished at 36 free throws and offensive rebounds made enough of a difference. After coming out of the first quarter tied at 17-17, Dunnellon built to a 41-34 halftime lead despite missing 15 field goals in the second quarter. For that quarter, the Tigers outrebounded Lecanto 13-4 and got 12 points from Frazier, who put Tuesdays 0-for-13 field-goal performance against Lake Weir well behind him in tallying 23 points in the opening half. I just had to get my head back in the game, Frazier said on bouncing back. As someone who was averaging 17 points and then scored zero points and we lose the game (to Lake Weir), I felt like it was my fault. So I had to make up for it and come out tonight for the district win. Dunnellon junior Andre Hairston came in just below his average with 16 points 10 in the second half, but made more of an impression with his 18 rebounds and five steals. He also had a handful of key assists. We stormed back and had a chance, Anderson said, but it comes down to offensive rebounds and free throws. I thought we made a good adjustment in the second half to slow down Frazier after he lit us up in the first half. Youve got to give it to Dunnellon. They knocked down the free throws and got the rebounds they needed to. The Panthers asserted themselves better on the boards in the second half in collecting three more rebounds than the Tigers down the stretch. But as the rebounding improved, the foul shooting went downhill, as the team went 8 for 17 in the latter half. Meanwhile, the Tigers made 13 of their 16 free-throw attempts, and 12 of 15 in the second half. We made just enough to finish the game, DHS head coach Travis Licht said. I wasnt overly happy with the way we finished, but give Lecanto credit, they made some plays, too. Overall, I think it was a good effort, and Ill take a district win any day. Down by eight entering the fourth quarter, Lecanto clawed its way back behind 3s by McGee, who finished with 11 points and two steals in his first start, and freshman Kaine McColley, who had nine points and 10 rebounds on the night. For the game, junior Brandon Burich paced the Panthers with 20 points and 12 boards, and blocked a pair of Tiger shots. Fellow LHS junior Darius Sawyer was somewhat held in check with nine points, but did have a couple of steals and a monster first-quarter dunk off an assist from McGee. Vilardi finished with 10 points. Lecanto faces Clearwater at 3:30 p.m. today in the LHS gym Associated PressFor Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch, todays East-West Shrine game is another opportunity to show hes a better pro prospect than some scouts might suspect. Stars stay alive Sharapova, Federer, Stephens all into 4th round of Aussie Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia Maria Sharapova recovered from the longest, hottest match of her career to beat Alize Cornet 6-1, 7-6 (6) Saturday and reach the fourth round of the Australian Open. Her third-round match was played in high humidity but in temperatures of about 22 Celsius (72 Fahrenheit), considerably cooler than the scorching 42 C (108 F) conditions she endured for 3 hours, 28 minutes in her second-round win over Karin Knapp two days previously. That preceded the first match suspensions under the tournaments Extreme Heat Policy in five years. Again, though, Sharapova struggled to close out. She took 50 minutes between her first and last match points against Knapp, and needed almost 30 minutes to finish off Cornet she missed a match point with a wayward backhand on the Frenchwomans serve and then got broken twice while trying to serve for the match. Sharapova had six doubles-faults and 29 of her total 35 unforced errors in the second set after breezing through the first. After the last match Im just happy to get through this, Sharapova said. Definitely need to step it up. I was lucky to get through the other day, now that Im in the second week, Im level. The four-time major winner needed an ice bath after her second-round win but joked about needing a warm bath following her victory over Cornet. Its such a quick change, Sharapova said of the cooler conditions. I think its really welcome from all of us. The third-seeded Sharapova was still wearing ice vests and draping ice-filled towels over her shoulders in the changeovers on Saturday. No. 25 Cornet appeared to be laboring between points in the second set, spending time retreating to the shade and breathing deeply at certain stages. She had been clearly distressed after her second-round win in the heat, also, sobbing when she described the conditions as like an oven. Sharapova will next play Dominika Cibulkova, who beat No. 16 Carla Suarez Navarro 6-1, 6-0 in 59 minutes. Stephens through to 4th round at Australian OpenMELBOURNE, Australia Sloane Stephens is having another good Australian Open, advancing to the fourth round with a 7-5, 6-4 win over Elina Svitolina of Ukraine on Saturday. Last year, Stephens made it to the fourth round or better at all four majors joining Serena Williams and Agnieszka Radwanska as the only players to achieve that feat. And Stephens, seeded 13th this year, beat Williams in last years quarterfinals at Melbourne Park, one of only four losses for Williams in 2013.Federer advances to 4th round at Australian OpenMELBOURNE, Australia Four-time champion Roger Federer has advanced to the fourth round at the Australian Open for the 13th consecutive year following a 6-2, 6-2, 6-3 win Saturday over Teymuraz Gabashvili. The win may be a good omen for the sixth-seeded Federer.

Adult sportsRESULTS Record number of underclassmen entering NFL draft Associated PressSouth Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel headline a record number of underclassmen entering the NFL draft heading into Wednesday nights deadline. At least 90 players who had college eligibility remaining are expected to enter the draft, shattering last years record number of 73. Its a humongous number, so the first reaction is it makes you step back a little bit, said NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah, a former scout with the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles. What Im hearing is that the agents always have to make the sales pitch to get these to come out. This year, what Ive been told is the sales pitch is that all your money right now is coming from the second contract, so you need to come out early so you can get to that second contract a year earlier ... and apparently its been pretty effective. ESPN analyst Mel Kiper Jr. released a mock draft Wednesday in which 23 of the 32 first-round picks were early entries. Kiper had Manziel going first overall and included Clowney, UCF quarterback Blake Bortles and Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins as top-five picks. Jeremiahs list of the top 50 draft prospects includes early entries in the top three spots: Clowney at No. 1, Watkins at No. 2 and Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson at No. 3. Its going to be a huge number of underclassmen that go high and have long careers, Jeremiah said. And there are going to be some other guys who dont get drafted and will be in a tough spot and would have been better served to go back to school. It works both ways. Heres a position-by-position breakdown of some of the early entries:QuarterbackManziel, Bortles and Louisvilles Teddy Bridgewater are all projected firstround picks. Although the 6-foot-1 Manziel lacks the size of Bortles and Bridgewater, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner played tougher competition in the Southeastern Conference. Jeremiah ranks Manziel as his No. 7 overall prospect, with Bridgewater 10th and Bortles 22nd. Kipers mock draft has Bridgewater getting taken eighth. Wyomings Brett Smith isnt regarded as highly as the other three quarterbacks, but he could get chosen later in the draft.Running backAuburns Tre Mason boosted his stock by rushing for 663 yards against Alabama, Missouri and Florida State over his final three games. Jeremiah rates Mason 47th overall and second among running backs, behind Ohio State senior Carlos Hyde. Other notable running backs to enter the draft include Arizonas KaDeem Carey, Washingtons Bishop Sankey, Oregons DeAnthony Thomas, LSUs Jeremy Hill, UCFs Storm Johnson and Florida State teammates Devonta Freeman and James Wilder Jr.Wide receiverThe impact of underclassmen on the draft is perhaps most evident at wide receiver. Kipers mock draft has seven early entry receivers going in the first round: Watkins, Texas A&Ms Mike Evans (13), Southern Californias Marqise Lee (18), Florida States Kelvin Benjamin (22), Oregon States Brandin Cooks (28), LSUs Odell Beckham Jr. (30) and Penn States Allen Robinson (32). Jeremiah has nine listed among his top 50 overall prospects. And that doesnt factor in the available tight ends. Kiper has North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron going 16th overall and Texas Techs Jace Amaro 29th.Offensive lineRobinson has parlayed a breakthrough season at Auburn into a likely top-10 selection in the draft. Alabamas Cyrus Kouandjio and Tennessees Antonio Tiny Richardson could join him in the first round.Defensive lineThe headliner here is Clowney, who may have the most upside of any prospect regardless of position. Florida State tackle Timmy Jernigan also is a potential top-10 pick. Notre Dame teammates Louis Nix and Stephon Tuitt, as well as Missouris Kony Ealy, could both get taken in the first round. Florida tackle Dominique Easley was playing at an All-America level this fall before tearing his anterior cruciate ligament.LinebackerOhio States Ryan Shazier is rated as the No. 31 overall prospect by Jeremiah. Other linebackers turning pro early include Floridas Ronald Powell, Californias Khairi Fortt, Alabamas Adrian Hubbard and Connecticuts Yawin Smallwood.Defensive backAlabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Louisville safety Calvin Pryor are both listed as first-round picks in Kipers mock draft and top-15 prospects in Jeremiahs rankings. Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby, rated 50th overall by Jeremiah, is the 25th pick in Kipers mock draft. Associated PressArizona All-America running back KaDeem Carey is one of at least 90 players who will forgo his final season of college eligibility and enter the NFL draft. Associated PressSeattle Seahawks middle linebacker Bobby Wagner said he cant hear defensive signals in his helmet at least once a home game because the crowd noise generated by the Seahawks fans is so overwhelming. Seattle learns to deal with noise Associated PressRENTON, Wash. At least once per home game it seems like the voices inside Bobby Wagners helmet go silent. Gone are the voices that relay plays from the sideline to the Seattle Seahawks middle linebacker through a small speaker implanted inside his helmet. And its not because Wagners coaches arent trying. He simply cannot hear what they are saying, overwhelmed by the noise coming from his home fans. It gets so loud that we just use hand signals and I try to read coach (Ken) Nortons mouth, Wagner said. Its hard but I think we do a good job and I feel like weve played here so many times were grown accustomed to the noise and adapted really well so it doesnt really affect us. Everyone knows about the noise that cascades upon visiting teams from the fans at CenturyLink Field and the difficulty all the sound creates. It causes communication problems, untimely penalties and headaches both real and imagined. But the flip side is that it makes it kind of hard for the home team to communicate on defense. Even the Seahawks coaches struggle sometimes and are forced to scream through the headsets. No problem. After some early acclimation, the Seahawks have figured out how to thrive even if they can never hear one another. Sometimes youve got to look at each other and understand the situation and be on the same page, Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said. Youve got to slow yourselves down and slow the game down and understand situational football. Youre not going to be able to tell them, hey, hey, alert the corner, alert the spot route or alert that. Youve got to look at him and know, You see what Im seeing? Yes, were on the same page, and play it out. Playing through the din, Seattle has forced 21 turnovers at home in the regular season and no offense gained more than 350 total yards. Jacksonville and Minnesota were the only teams in the regular season to pass for more than 200 yards on the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field, but both games were blowouts where Seattle combined to force seven turnovers against the two. The members of Seattles secondary said this year theyve noticed how much easier its become to communicate non-verbally and how often theyre all seeing the same thing from the offense. It just sort of happened. You didnt even realize it at first until you kind of sit back and watch film like, golly, were tied on a string, safety Earl Thomas said. Everybodys on their role, theyre into it, and were in sync. Were in a good place right now as a whole defense. Seattle is helped getting its calls made by the fact that the Seahawks dont make wholesale defensive changes or run multiple packages. For the most part, Seattle stays relatively simple, especially in the secondary where its base plan of playing with one deep safety and pressure from the cornerbacks is consistent. The majority of Seattles changes come on the defensive line and most of those are swapping a group of run stuffers for a group of pass rushers. It helps a lot because you dont see a lot of people running in and out on the field, Wagner said.

Associated PressSan Francisco 49ers wide receivers Anquan Boldin (81) and Michael Crabtree (15) take part in the teams practice Wednesday in Santa Clara, Calif. At full strength 49ers wideout tandem tough on defenses Associated PressSANTA CLARA, Calif. Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree waited nearly eight months to finally step on the field together for game day. At last, in Week 13, everyone got to see the dynamic tandem in San Franciscos upgraded receiving corps and it didnt take them long to discover an impressive rhythm for a passing game in serious need of a jolt. While the emotional Boldin helped lead the offense alongside Colin Kaepernick, Frank Gore and Vernon Davis early on, Crabtree worked through months of rehab after surgery for a torn right Achilles tendon. That was the vision going in, him on one side, me on the other, Vernon working the middle of the field, Boldin said. Its tough on defenses when you have two guys outside capable of having big games, and then you have Vernon inside matched up with linebackers. So, it gives defenses fits. Whether the Seahawks stellar secondary can be fooled by this talented trio during the NFC championship game Sunday at Seattle will play a key factor in which of the archrivals advances to the Super Bowl. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh wondered whether Crabtree would be the same dominant player. Even offensive coordinator Greg Roman had his doubts it would happen this season given the severity of Crabtrees injury. Hearing not an obstacle Seahawks FB legally deaf Associated PressRENTON, Wash. CenturyLink Field is the loudest around. Derrick Coleman knows it even if he cant hear it. Seattles backup fullback is hearing impaired, which would seem to preclude a pro football career. Yet the second-year player from UCLA has become an integral part of the NFC West champions, and will be on the field Sunday when the Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. And when the Seahawks are lined up in the tunnel before being introduced and the crowd is testing the seismograph, Coleman knows exactly whats going on. I get the same feeling everybody gets, said Coleman, who lost his hearing when he was 3 years old. You all walk through the tunnel and everybody cheering is heartwarming, the fans cheering you on. In terms of being loud and able to hear that, I feel it. I dont exactly hear it, I dont get pain like you guys, Coleman added Thursday to a group of reporters. I know they are all yelling, I can hear everybody talking, but it doesnt hurt me as much as anybody else. You have a lot of problems if you cant feel that. It would seem natural to think any deaf player would have problems reaching the NFL, but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll doesnt believe its an issue with Coleman. Seattle picked him up as a free agent in December 2012, and he appeared in 12 games this season, mainly as a blocker and special teamer. And as an inspiration. He does his job impeccably well in all areas and everything that we ask of him, Carroll said. Hes a terrific effort guy. ... Hes been a fantastic part of the team and its been a really cool story. Not because he has issues, because hes made this team and hes made a spot for himself and hes claimed it. The fact that he has a hearing issue is really not even something that we deal with. Coleman deals with it every second of his life. He recently did a commercial for Duracell batteries that has become a YouTube sensation with, he said, more than 4.5 million hits. The premise of the commercial was the importance of long-lasting batteries. Coleman acknowledges he always has an extra pair handy for his hearing aids and even needed to change them out in last weeks victory over New Orleans. But to the 23-year-old from Los Angeles, the ad was about much more. Its spreading awareness not just for the hearing impaired but for everybody, Coleman said. Everybody has problems, but we can still do what we want to do. Ive been doing this since I was in college. Like I always tell everybody, there might be 100 people in the room, but if one walks away knowing, I can still chase the dream, that is all I care about. Its heartwarming. Associated PressSeattle Seahawks fullback Derrick Coleman speaks with members of the media about how he can read lips Thursday in Renton, Wash. Coleman, who is hearing impaired, has hearing aids in both ears. Associated PressDenver Broncos head coach John Fox, right, talks to outside linebacker Nate Irving (56) and middle linebacker Paris Lenon (51) during practice at the teams training facility in Englewood, Colo., on Thursday. Denver coachs biggest decision was a life-saver Associated PressENGLEWOOD, Colo. Of all the decisions coach John Fox made that kept the Denver Broncos rolling through a drama-filled season, one was an absolute life-saver. Instead of going out on his fishing boat for some solitude during his teams bye week, Fox decided to play 18 holes with some buddies some 200 yards from his offseason home in Charlotte, N.C. Id have been 60 miles out in the woods, Fox said. They might never have found me. Fox had just seen his cardiologist in Raleigh, who told him hed still be able to delay his heart operation until after the Super Bowl so long as he didnt feel faint or short of breath in the meantime. Fox was born with a genetic defect in his aortic valve, which regulates blood flow from the heart into the aorta, the major blood vessel that brings blood into the body. He said it was discovered in 1997 when a murmur showed up in a physical while he was the Giants defensive coordinator. Feeling dizzy, he chipped within 2 feet for par, then lay down on the 14th green and, hardly able to breathe, said a short prayer: God you get me out of this and Ill get it fixed now. Less than 48 hours later, on Nov. 4, he underwent open-heart surgery. Four days after that, he was released from the hospital and his wife helped him set up a command center at his home in Charlotte to keep tabs on his team back in Denver. Not only was he in daily contact with defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio, who guided the Broncos to three wins in four games during in his absence, but Fox was also in constant communication with his captains, including quarterback Peyton Manning. Fox watched cut-ups of practices on his iPad playbook to help formulate game plans and he watched games on his big-screen TV. The lone loss during his hiatus was a 34-31 overtime heartbreaker at New England on Nov. 24 when the Broncos blew a 24-0 halftime lead after cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie separated a shoulder trying to pick off Tom Bradys desperation pass that died in the wind at the end of the first half. Brady took advantage of D.R.C.s absence to stage the biggest comeback of his career, just as hes going to try to capitalize on the loss of cornerback Chris Harris Jr. (knee) when the Patriots (13-4) visit the Broncos (14-3) on Sunday with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. Probably the hardest thing for the team was that we didnt know when Foxie was going to be back, Broncos executive vice president John Elway said. And in Foxies mind, he would have been back three days after the surgery. Fox and his wife, Robin, flew home on team owner Pat Bowlens jet in late November and at Del Rios suggestion he visited with the team on Thanksgiving morning, then watched from his home in Denver as the Broncos beat the Chiefs 35-28 in Kansas City that weekend to take charge of the AFC West. He returned to work the following day, his newfound energy matching his renewed enthusiasm, saying his surgeon told him the aortic valve was now the size of a 50cent piece instead of a pinhead. What a difference. He exuded vitality while capturing his third division title in his three seasons since replacing Josh McDaniels in Denver, then dispatched the demons of last years playoff loss with an exhaling win over San Diego last weekend. Hes got more energy than anybody Ive ever seen, Elway said. That, to me, is the definition of John Fox: the energy level that he brings. He brings it to the practice field, and its contagious. I think thats why he was a perfect fit for us after what happened with Josh. That positive attitude that he brings turned the culture around because of the type of guy that he is. We missed his energy. Since his return on Dec. 2, Fox has more pep in his step, more boom in his voice and even more gumption in his calls. Like sending in Matt Prater for a 64-yard field goal attempt on an icy afternoon in Denver or ordering his high-powered offense not to milk the clock with a big lead at Houston, where Manning broke Bradys single-season touchdown record with a late score. Could this be the same man who had Manning take a knee with three timeouts and 31 seconds remaining in regulation in the playoff game last year after Baltimores Jacoby Jones 70-yard game-tying TD catch? Associated PressENGLEWOOD, Colo. For a brief time, Josh McDaniels was a celebrity in Denver and he played the part with gusto running to the corner of the stadium after his first signature win and pumping his fists at the crowd to celebrate. This doesnt mean a whole lot unless you can share it with somebody, McDaniels said that day. Sometimes, youre allowed to have fun. The fun ended almost as quickly as it began. And less than five years after that big win over New England vaulted the Broncos to an unexpected 5-0 record, the name Josh McDaniels stirs up far more angst and anger in Denver than those of the men he beat that day, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. I aint got nothing to say about him, says Broncos defensive lineman Robert Ayers, a first-round draft pick during the two-year McDaniels era that Broncos fans would love to forget. The man who gave the Broncos a videotaping scandal and a league-worst defense, who alienated fans and left the franchise holding the bag on the Tim Tebow experiment, returns Sunday to try to deliver another dagger to Denver. Hes now working as New Englands offensive coordinator and will try to devise the game plan to send the Patriots to the Super Bowl and keep his old team, the Broncos, out of it. A 33-year-old coach with a thin resume and a lot to prove, McDaniels got another victory after the New England win in 2009 to extend his tenureopening winning streak to six games. He followed that with 17 losses over the next 22 games and got fired with four weeks left in the 2010 season. Obviously, his time here was a little shorter than he probably hoped or expected, but thats in the past, said Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker, a third-round pick in McDaniels second draft in Denver.

Earlier today I got a jump on spring cleaning and tackled my column fodder pile of scribbles and note fragments. Sometimes people ask how I think of stuff to write each week. Id like to say, The Spirit moves me, and sometimes thats hopefully true. Most of the time, however, I read or hear something that sparks a thought. Some result in a fullblown column and some merely snippets. Today is a snippets day. From sermon notes taken during a church service: The pastor asked, Are you a good Christian or a bad Christian? Then he said, If you can check off a list of dos and donts and your pluses are more than your minuses, then you might call yourself a good Christian. But thats a trick question because youre thinking about your performance. He continued, paraphrasing Galatians 3, where the Apostle Paul says if you rely on how well you behave, how many dos and donts you follow, then you are under a curse. The key word, he said, is rely. Either you rely on your own performance or you rely on Christs. Truthfully, Id much rather rely on Christs because I cant even make it out the door in the morning without breaking at least seven of the Ten Commandments. Being a Christian isnt a selfimprovement program. Its not about being a rule-keeper, but about relying on Jesus, who kept the rules for us. Thats good news, yall. Im constantly amazed that people actually resist it and Im talking about people who call themselves Christians. On a piece of paper Ive written: Shadows = scary; they make things look bigger than they are. But if theres a shadow, theres also a light. In the old Little Rascals movie shorts of the 1930s, theres one where Alfalfas aunt comes to babysit on a dark and stormy night. Aunt Penelope writes murder mysteries, and when Alfalfa finds a page from her manuscript he thinks shes plotting to kill him, so he gathers his friends to protect him. Although its a comedy, its creepy. The lights go out and there are all these eerie, scary shadows cast by Aunt Penelope and knives and candelabras and theres a blood-curdling scream as the clock chimes. But when Alfalfas parents come home and the lights go on and the rest of the book is found, the danger disappears. Its the light and the truth that makes the difference. The prophet Isaiah said of the coming Messiah: The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned (Matthew 4:16). Where Jesus is, where his people are, theres light, and light brings illumination, warmth and release from fear. And you cant really ever appreciate light unless youve been in darkness. On another piece of paper: Grace you dont find it; grace finds you. Grace pursues those it loves ... Grace forgives when we dont deserve it ... Grace reconciles when it otherwise seems impossible ... Grace is not reserved for good people, but it underscores how good God is ... We say, What On Jan. 16, Jews all over the world celebrated a holiday called Tu Bishvat, dedicated to nature and the preservation of the environment. Long before green technology or before global warming, Jews set aside the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Shevat to rejoice in the coming of spring to the Land of Israel. Since the almond tree blossoms on this date, it was a fitting time to honor trees and nature. In the diaspora, it is often winter, so trees are planted by proxy in Israel through the auspices of the Jewish National Fund. With the advent of the state of Israel and the rise of modern Zionism, interest in the Holy Land has fostered and Jews worldwide send contributions for the planting of trees and the beautification of the infrastructure. It is also customary to eat fruits from Israel such as carob, figs, dates, oranges and pomegranates. In Jewish tradition, trees are often planted in memory or in honor of a person. Whole forests, such as the John F. Kennedy memorial one in Israel, honoring the slain president, are used as legacies that live on. The whole concept of a tree whose legacy grows and continues to thrive is a theme that is prevalent in Judaism as the Torah, a living document, is often referred to as a Tree of Life. Recently, the Indianapolis Childrens Museum has come into possession of some 11 saplings grown from the original chestnut tree that grew outside of Anne Franks window near her attic hideout in Amsterdam. The young Jewish girl hid with her family from the Nazis for 25 months until they were betrayed and arrested in 1944. During the time they were in hiding, the Frank family had to be quiet during the day in order to escape detection.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, JANUARY 18, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:Tax seasons nearly here. Are you ready? If not, fear not./C5 RELIGION BRIEFS Protests at clinics back at high court WASHINGTON The regulation of protests outside abortion clinics returns to the Supreme Court today for the first time since 2000. The state of Massachusetts is defending a law that prohibits abortion protests any closer than 35 feet from the entrance to clinics. Abortion opponents hoping to dissuade women from ending their pregnancies filed suit, saying the law limits their ability to encounter patients arriving for care. But federal courts in Massachusetts have upheld the law as a reasonable imposition on protesters rights. In 2000, the Supreme Court voted 6-3 to uphold a different buffer zone in Colorado. State officials and clinic employees say the buffer zones make patients and staff feel safer and find it easier to enter abortion clinics. The Rev. Harry Knox, president of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, said the law protects women from harassment as they exercise their rights. But the Rev. Patrick Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, says he prays the Supreme Court will find that the law unconstitutionally suppresses free speech. Kerry visits papal diplomat to talk hope for peace in Mideast VATICAN CITY Intrigued by signals of an invigorated papal diplomacy, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has enlisted a new ally in his push for Mideast peace. In a brief visit to the Vatican Tuesday, Kerry did not meet with Pope Francis but said he had wide-ranging discussions with the popes chief diplomat. Kerry is the first American Roman Catholic secretary of state to visit the Vatican since Edmund Muskie more than 30 years ago. He told reporters, As an altar boy as a young kid, I would never have imagined that I would have been crossing the threshold of the Vatican to meet, as secretary of state, with the secretary of state of the Holy See. Noting that the pope plans to visit the Holy Land in May, Kerry vowed to keep Francis informed on what progress there may be in the peace process. Kerry said the Vatican also will want to ensure that future agreements guarantee freedom of access for religious worship in Jerusalem for all religions. Gay teacher loses job over engagement TOLEDO, Ohio An Ohio band and choir director says he knew that announcing his engagement to another man likely would mean he could no longer teach at a Roman Catholic school because of the churchs teachings on marriage. Brian Panetta said he was forced to resign last week after he told administrators at Sandusky Central Catholic School about his engagement over the Christmas break. In a letter to people associated with the school, Panetta calls himself a proud and gay Catholic who hopes the church will change its teachings on marriage. Questions raised about KCC email TOPEKA, Kan. The American Civil Liberties Union says an official email sent by a Kansas Corporation Commission employee discussing his religious beliefs may have opened the KCC to legal liability. Jared Bowes, a KCC media specialist, tried to put a veiled reference to Jesus into the commissions December newsletter, but it was edited out. Bowes then used his stateissued email address to send a message to his colleagues saying King Jesus is the reason for the season. Doug Bonney, legal director for the ACLU Foundation of Kansas, says while state employees have free speech rights, problems arise when religious statements are made using the state email system.

Grace is the exception to this principle. Hallelujah! Enough said. Philippians 4:8 says to think of lovely things. In the newspaper business we hear mostly unlovely things, and it can kill your soul. Its easy to think the worst about people, but thats unfair. We dont know another persons pain. We dont know the reasons they do what they do. I believe in giving mercy, because God has been merciful to me. Its my choice to think on lovely things. From an email from a friend: A couple of years ago a well-known Christian artist gave an evening concert at a church in Nashville. Although the concert was heavily promoted, only a handful of people showed up. The pastor was upset and told the singer he didnt understand why that had happened. The singer told him, Only the wounded come out at night. My friend wrote, Thats a revelation we are for the wounded. We, you and I, reach the wounded, the sinful and the people who dont fit. That is a wonderful gift to be able to do that. The others, as Jesus said, dont need a physician. They dont think theyre sick. I can only pray that one day God will use my words for the wounded.

Fourteen-year-old Anne kept a diary which was discovered by her father, who survived after the war, and after its publication, the world learned of the tragic circumstances of the Jews in Amsterdam. To keep Anne Franks legacy alive, 11 locations around the United States were chosen to receive these saplings for planting based the locations dedication to tolerance, peace, social justice and equality. One of the locations includes a park honoring 9/11 victims and an Arkansas school that was the seat of the desegregation battle according to the Anne Frank Center USA. At the Indianapolis Childrens Museum, the sapling will be planted in a peace park with a sculpture of Anne Franks diary near it. The famous chestnut tree is referenced several times in her diary. For a family in captivity, this was their connection to nature and the living, natural world. Nearly every morning I go to the attic, a Feb. 23, 1944, entry reads, From my favorite spot on the floor I look up at the blue sky and the bare chestnut tree, on whose branches little raindrops shine, appearing like silver, and at the seagulls and other birds as they glide on the wind. In spite of her precarious situation, her writings reflect hope and the belief in the humanity of people. It is these positive words that kept her focused on survival during a time of prejudice and intolerance. In 2007, the famous chestnut was deemed a safety hazard by Amsterdam officials and was ordered cut down. Public outcry gave the tree a reprieve, but subsequently, nature and age brought the famous tree to the ground. To keep Anne Franks legacy growing, the city fathers cultivated saplings from the chestnut and sent them to the United States for planting in designated spots. In keeping with the spirit of Tu Bishvat, may tolerance and understanding grow and flourish. May people of all races, creeds and nationalities learn to live and work in harmony. May the words of a young girls diary inspire us to work for the betterment of humanity. And may her legacy continue to grow like the chestnut saplings planted in her memory.Judi Siegal is a retired teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Ocala with her husband, Phil.

SATURDAY, JANUARY18, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.The Houses of Parliament in London are encouraging the development of bridge. In July, 12 pupils from Spaxton Primary School in Somerset, U.K., played a game of MiniBridge in the River Room, made available by the Lord Speaker of the House of Lords, The Rt. Hon. the Baroness DSouza, CMG. The Lords and the Commons also hold an annual bridge match. Last years was won by the lower house, the Commons, and that leaves the series score at 21-18 in favor of the upper house. Todays deal was chosen as the best-played of the day. It was declared by the Earl of Caithness, who was in four spades. West led the diamond king. When East started a high-low with his 10, West cashed his diamond ace and persevered with the diamond queen. How did Caithness continue? North, Lady Blackstone, made a game-invitational limit raise of three spades. These days, in the tournament world, jump raises in competitive auctions are pre-emptive. North would have cue-bid three diamonds to show spade support and at least game-invitational values. If South ruffed the third diamond low in the dummy, East would overruff, and later declarer would lose a club to go down one. Alternatively, if he ruffed with dummys spade queen, that would promote a trump trick for the opponents if spades were breaking 3-1, also resulting in down one. Caithness saw the solution. At trick three, he discarded a club from the board a textbook loser-on-loser play. Then, after drawing trumps, South ruffed his club loser in the dummy to take five spades, two hearts, two clubs and that ruff.

His passing came as a shock to everyone. He wasnt ill or showing any indication that something was wrong. We suspect it was a heart attack. However, the real tragedy of his passing is that William and his two children had been estranged for more than 19 years. When I called his son and daughter to inform them of their fathers passing, I could tell that they certainly felt the loss, and they also understood that any opportunity for reconciliation was now lost forever. All the years of anger and resentment suddenly appeared senseless. I do not know the reasons for the estrangement, but I can place blame on William, as well as his children, because all of them were adamant that they were right about the way they felt. I had discussions with my brother, but he was never ready to open up communication with his kids. I also met with my niece in the hope of persuading her to phone her father and try to talk things out. She didnt. And her brother declined to talk to me about it. Whatever wounds they had incurred had not healed, and there was no change of heart. With their fathers passing, they will now have to cope with their inaction for the rest of their lives. Please pass my letter along to your readers. Life is too short to harbor ill feelings and resentment, especially with loved ones. God gave us the blessing of children. Parents and children should not toss this blessing aside for what turns out to be in hindsight some perceived slight or miscommunication. Mourning My Brother Dear Mourning: Our sincere condolences for the loss of your brother. We hope your letter serves as a heartbreaking warning. People often think they have limitless time to fix relationships, but you never know what will happen. If someone is important to you, work it out. Talk it through. Get an unbiased third party to mediate if necessary, but dont let it fester until its too late. Dear Annie: I am a heating and cooling professional. In the past month, I have gone into many homes to repair their furnaces. Several times, the only problem I found was faulty batteries in their digital thermostats. Please inform your readers that spending five dollars and replacing their thermostat batteries could save them an $80-$100 service call from their heating contractor. They should change these batteries every year. Perhaps next fall, when they are thinking about Thanksgiving or buying holiday gifts, they could pick up some extra batteries as a gift to themselves. Staying Warm in South Dakota Dear South Dakota: Thanks for the welcome information. We admit that replacing thermostat batteries did not occur to us, but we will pay more attention in the future, and we hope our readers will, as well. Dear Annie: Finally at Peace said she learned to appreciate those grandchildren who keep in touch and stop mourning the ones who dont. I, too, spent an inordinate amount of time grieving the loss of my nieces and nephew after my parents and my husband passed away. Over time, I decided to help with my churchs Sunday school and recently went to work for an after-school program. Im no longer grieving, and guess what? The last time I spoke to my nephew, it was a very positive experience. I agree with Finally that there are ways to involve yourself with children. They dont even need to be related to you. I meet and enjoy the company of many young people. And actually having a job allows me to earn extra money, as well.
