He began his presentation by congratulating the children on their academic achievements and then asked them: Who said, Global perspective PATFAHERTY Staff writerCitrus County Commissioner Rebecca Bays chairs the Tourism Development Council, an advisory board that reviews and makes recommendations on spending tourism tax revenue to promote more visitors. The council also works with the county tourism director and staff of the Citrus County Visitors & Convention Bureau and consultants on various tourism boosting initiatives including the Visit Citrus magazine, website, local events and collateral materials. Bays is also chair-elect of the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce.CHRONICLE: Tourism has been a consistent bright spot in Citrus Countys economy; do you see it continuing to grow and expand through 2014? BAYS: Absolutely, with over 80 million people visiting the state of Florida each year, it would be only logical to ascertain Citrus County can attract a percentage of the number. We want to just make sure we stay competitive in that edge and we keep identifying people so we can just have a small portion of that market here in Citrus County. CHRONICLE: Do you think most Citrus County residents, businesses and public employees are fully aware of the impact visitors have on the countys economy? BAYS: Most definitely not. I would wager that if you were to do a local poll most residents couldnt even tell you how many people come here to visit the manatees each year. Just speaking with the Fish and Wildlife officials they estimate there are probably about 225,000 people that come to Three Sisters Springs, where were at today. And that doesnt include the people who come for scalloping, golfing, motorcycle rallies, the bike trails we have.

Blaze claims life of woman CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCITRUS SPRINGS A woman was reported to have died at about midnight Saturday in a fire at her rental home. At 11:47 p.m., Citrus County Sheriffs Office Division of Fire Rescue was dispatched to a structure fire at 8595 N. Golfview Drive, according to an incident worksheet from the CCSO. Neighbors advised the house was fully involved in flames, as firefighters confirmed on arrival. The first firefighting unit to arrive advised the fire had burned through the roof that was 75 percent involved. Neighbors advised firefighters that the home possibly was occupied by an elderly woman who had been seen there the previous day and was said to be unable to ambulate well. After the fire was brought under control, a search confirmed the presence of an occupant, whose identity was not released, pending the notification of next of kin. The origin and the cause of the fire are under investigation by the State Fire Marshal, who arrived on the scene. Twelve vehicles attended the incident, with mutual aid from Crystal River Fire Department. According to the report, the house was totally destroyed by fire.

Air Force wants to train in forestCARRABELLE The Air Force is planning to ask the Florida Forest Service to allow special operation troops to train in a Panhandle forest. The Air Force wants to use Tates Hell State Forest in Franklin County to train troops stationed at Eglin Air Force Base. According to The Tallahassee Democrat, officials said such plans are far from final. The training may never be allowed if it will harm the environment or compromise forest management plans. A draft environmental impact statement is in the works. Some people who use the forest for recreation oppose the militarys plans, saying the training will restrict public access to the forest, damage the ecosystem and intrude on wilderness areas.Aides, students charged after fightKISSIMMEE Two teaching aides and three students face charges after a classroom fight in Central Florida. The fight started Jan.9 in a classroom for emotionally disturbed students at Discovery Intermediate School in Kissimmee. The Osceola County Sheriffs Office said chairs were thrown during the brawl, and students videos that captured the fight showed one student kicking another. Authorities said two teaching aides have been charged with child neglect because they failed to stop the fight or call for assistance, even though they had access to phones and radios. Three students have been charged with aggravated battery.Airport: Fake grass could deter birdsSANFORD A Central Florida airport want to install artificial turf to deter birds from hanging around the planes. Sanford International Airport officials claim birds cause problems for dozens of planes a year. One jet had to make an emergency landing after a bird flew into one of its engines. In 2012, the Federal Aviation Administration spent more than $100,000 on air cannons there to scare away birds. Airport officials told WFTV they now want to take a quieter approach. Officials said artificial turf doesnt retain water or food, so the birds wont want to hang around the airport. Three acres of the fake grass has been proposed for the north side of the airport at a cost of more than $500,000. Airport officials plan to finalize the project next month. an interim administrator. The ideal agenda is how we want to establish criteria for the search, Ressler said. That discussion could include hiring a consultant to conduct the search, or asking the hospital boards transaction agent to gather up rsums, Chadwick said. Another possibility is hiring someone whose specialty is filling in during situations like this to oversee the hospital operations before HCA takes over. Im sure thats something that will be on the table, Ressler said. The committee is charged with interviewing finalists and submitting a single name to the foundation, which can either approve the nominee or not. If the foundation votes no, the process starts over. Chadwick said its vital to find the right person. Weve got two months. The world doesnt come to an end if its two months and two days, she said. This is an important decision. Chadwick said whoever is chosen, she doesnt want the administrator making wholesale changes or employment decisions. She noted both the foundation and hospital board insisted that HCA protect all employees jobs for one year. Employees should have the same protection under an interim CEO, she said. One thing Ill be looking at is how this person perceives the job, she said. Theyre just supposed to keep the place going until HCA steps in.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. Special to the ChronicleWith recent rainfall and cooler temperatures, the Southwest Florida Water Management District is reminding residents who irrigate their lawns to Skip a Week or more of watering during the cooler months of January and February. According to research by the University of Florida, grass doesnt need to be watered as often during the cooler months. One-half to three-quarters of an inch of water every 10 to 14 days is sufficient. If your lawn has received any significant rainfall, then you can turn off your irrigation system and operate it manually as needed. Overwatering can encourage pests and disease in your lawn, said Robin Grantham, water conservation coordinator. Too much irrigation can also make lawns less able to survive droughts. Skipping a week of watering is as easy as off for residents with irrigation timers. Turn the timer to off for the week that you want to skip, and on for the week that you want to water, said Grantham. Homeowners can determine when grass needs water when: Grass blades are folded in half lengthwise on at least one-third of a yard. Grass blades appear blue-gray. Grass blades do not spring back, leaving footprints on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it. Watering every other week during the winter will help conserve drinking water supplies for critical uses during the dry season. If everyone skipped one week of irrigation this season, it could save an estimated 1.9billion gallons of water in the water districts territory. For additional information about water restrictions and water conservation, contact your local utility or visit the water districts website at WaterMatters.org/SkipA Week.

ONLINE POLL RESULTS Rich Nugent Bill Nelson Marco Rubio Bluebird boom NANCY KENNEDY /ChronicleHernando resident Louis Nipper builds bluebird nesting boxes. Theyre beautiful birds, he says. As a member of the Florida Bluebird Society, he estimates he has helped raise 1,500 bluebirds on the Withlacoochee State Trail alone, with 250 of his nesting boxes placed along the 46-mile trail. Florida Bluebird Society regional meeting slated Feb. 1 NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerHERNANDO Smaller than a tea cup with a distinctive song that sounds like churlee, chur-lee, the bluebird is a favorite among bird lovers like Louis Nipper. As a member of the Florida Bluebird Society, he and other fans of the little blue-feathered bird monitor the local bluebird population, actually keeping count of every new one that hatches from the hundreds of nesting boxes they put up around Citrus County. Nipper himself has built hundreds and has put up 250 on the Withlacoochee State Trail alone, plus boxes around his Terra Vista neighborhood. Why bluebirds? My son gave me a bluebird box when we moved here, and that got me started, he said. He had met Stead Lott, the local bluebird man who has built and given away more than 10,000 bluebird boxes, and bought 150 of them as a donation to the local Boys & Girls Clubs. When Lott retired from his full-time hobby, Nipper decided he could build them not at the rate Lott had done, but he could help repopulate the area with bluebirds. According to information from National Geographic, even though bluebirds are considered fairly common, their numbers had declined substantially during the past century. However, thanks to backyard and roadside nesting boxes, the population has seen a boom. Nipper adds an aluminum casing to the boxes he makes, plus a weather-proof paint. The boxes are strictly for nesting and not for feeding. Theyre meat eaters, Nipper said. But if the ground is frozen, theyll eat seeds. Bluebirds eat insects, spiders and also small fruits. They mate in spring and summer, which is when you can see them zipping in and out of their bluebird condos that bluebird lovers put up on poles. The birds lay four to five eggs at a time, which take about two weeks to incubate. Then they fly away. Nipper and other bluebird volunteers have recorded about 1,500 new bluebirds on the Withlacoochee State Trail. Each month, they travel the length of the 46-mile trail and stop at every box each box is numbered. If theres a nest, they record it, plus the date, on the box itself. The next time they check, theyll record if theres a nest and/or eggs, noting how many eggs. The next time, if the eggs are gone, theyll add that number to the total bluebird count. If there were five eggs, but only four hatched, they know to add four more bluebirds to the general population. Those who are interested in bluebirds are invited to learn more at the regional meeting of the Florida Bluebird Society from 10a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb.1, at the Central Ridge Library in Beverly Hills. Guests will receive a free nesting box with instructions, while supply lasts.

CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER More than 150 manatees gathered at Three Sisters Springs during the weekend because of the cold weather, causing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to decide Sunday to issue a temporary closure. Manatees likely will remain in the warmer water throughout the week, FWS said in a news release. Because consistent low temperatures are expected throughout this week that will attract a great number of manatees seeking warmer water for resting, the FWS will close Three Sisters Springs indefinitely. It will monitor daily manatee activity and will reopen the springs when conditions are suitable for recreation inside the springs. Jurassic Springs will remain closed during the week, and House Springs likely will close early this week. The King Spring will remain open. During these temporary closures, visitors will always have the choice of visiting the King Spring and the areas outside Three Sisters Springs and Jurassic Springs where manatee congregations are common, said Ivan Vicente, visitor services specialist at the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. Manatee activity inside the springs is directly correlated with low temperatures and tidal changes. Manatees are highly vulnerable to cold weather and must have undisturbed access to warm water during this period of extreme cold. During such periods of unusual cold, the resting manatees remain almost motionless between breathing intervals to conserve energy. FWS recommends that swimmers and paddlers maintain a respectful distance from groups of resting manatees found outside of sanctuaries, not swim or paddle over any manatees and make every effort not to disturb manatees by noise and excessive splashing. Boaters also should be cautious, even when navigating at idle speed. During this period of extreme cold weather, high numbers of manatees can be found resting in the middle of the navigational canal adjacent to the Three Sisters Springs. Because of their need to rest, they may be less likely to react to surrounding boating activity. A potential synoptic aerial manatee survey is being coordinated by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to take place Friday morning. The FWS will participate by counting manatees over Citrus County. If conditions are ideal, the synoptic survey will help estimate the current Florida manatee population throughout the entire state. The FWS is the principal federal agency responsible for conserving, protecting, and enhancing fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. It manages the 150-million-acre National Wildlife Refuge System, which encompasses more than 560 national wildlife refuges, thousands of small wetlands and other special management areas.

I think Robert is grateful that I came. Now hes too proud to say that. But you can see in his eyes, Ayoade joked in an interview. He doesnt want to focus the whole thing on me at this stage. Its kind of between us. Ayoade, a British comedic actor, made his feature directing debut with the 2011 Sundance coming-of-age movie Submarine. He claims a warm welcome from the 77-year-old Redford after returning this year with The Double, which he directed and co-wrote. Hes there turning down the beds, making sure everyones got enough eggs. Hes all over it. Hes just there. But thats just Robert. He does too much, I tell him. He wont listen. It keeps him busy, thats the thing. Because otherwise the mind goes, Ayoade said in an interview, maintaining a deadpan face while his films star Jesse Eisenberg giggled beside him. And hes pretty much all there still. Hes sharp. I mean theres sometimes a delay. Hell drift off. But hell come back within five minutes. You just stick with it. But sometimes he just hits the deck and does messups and Im going, I dont know you. A lot of it is about circulation. Youve got to keep the blood moving. And joints. Youve got to keep your joints opened. And hes more aware of that than anyone. I mean thats why hes been in the business so long. As Ayoade kept up his story, Eisenberg was nearly doubled over with laughter. NBC will do remake of Peter Pan livePASADENA, Calif. Following up on the success of The Sound of Music last month, NBC said Sunday it will broadcast a live version of Peter Pan in December. It will be produced by the same team, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, that made The Sound of Music with Carrie Underwood The live musical reached 19million viewers, surprising even NBC entertainment president Robert Greenblatt. No cast members were announced Sunday. I have some dream choices, but I dont want to talk about it before approaching them, Greenblatt said. Peter Pan, which opened on Broadway in 1954, has a strong history with NBC. The network aired a live broadcast of the show from its own studios in 1955 with Tony Award-winner Mary Martin in the title role and most of the original Broadway cast, reaching 65 million viewers. That was a record for television at the time.Jane Lynch returns to host TV showPASADENA, Calif. Jane Lynch said her hosting duties on Hollywood Game Night are an extension of the bashes she tosses at home. The Glee star said she loves creating and hosting a space for her friends to have fun. Lynch returns for the NBC shows second season tonight, with back-to-back episodes that include celebrities Rosie ODonnell, Alyssa Milano and Mario Lopez. Fifteen new games will be played, along with some holdovers from last season.

I have a dream? Arms flew in the air and students shouted out in unison, Martin Luther King Jr. Because of that dream, my dreams were able to come true in life, Patterson said. Dr. Martin Luther King talked about equality and treating everyone the same. He fought for civil rights and marched up and down roads, doing what he had to do. He talked about it until they started making laws and changing laws. He made sure that we are all on the same playing field and that we can do the same job, no matter what your race is. He continued explaining to the children that society, including the military, was segregated before Kings speech. He said it was because of Kings continued determination that the United States became integrated. Fast forward to the year 2000, and I joined the Army, Patterson said. I joined as a food specialist. I was a door gunner. He explained to the children that door gunners fly in a helicopter and help fellow soldiers off of the battlefield, as well as bring them food. One day I was going to take the bad guys some water, Patterson told the students. Dont ask why I was going to take bad guys water. I havent figured that out myself. I called timeout, but apparently they didnt hear it, he continued. I got hit with a really, really big bullet while in the helicopter. Its called RPG (rocketpropelled grenade). They shot the bullet through the back of helicopter and it hit me in the front. The result: The loss of both of his legs. Patterson said when he awoke, he knew he had two choices give up or survive. Guess which one I decided to do? he asked. Survive. Why? Because I am an American. Patterson said when he got back to the United States he kissed the ground as there is nothing like America. Yea, America, the kids shouted. He said he thought about everything he did as a child and how happy he was growing up in America. That happiness and motivation are what he wants all children in the United States to have. Here I am today telling you how great it was for Dr. Martin Luther King to sacrifice his life, Patterson said. I didnt have a problem sacrificing my life so that you guys can go to school, learn and get a good education without being afraid of what we call terrorists or bad guys. I know if I am fighting over there that you guys are here at home enjoying life.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-5635660, ext. 1334, or eworthington @chronicleonline.com.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEMONDAY, JANUARY20, 2014 A7 Brand New, Cutting Edge YOU ARE NOT ALONE. 50 MILLION ADULTS 000DRRP The Better Hearing Institute defines tinnitus as the perception of a sound that has no external sour ce.

Associated PressLAND OLAKES A Tampa Bay-area man shot and killed during a dispute about texting at a movie theater is being remembered as a family man and funloving friend. More than 300 mourners attended the funeral Saturday for Chad Oulson, requiring ushers to bring out folding chairs and open the choir loft at the Land OLakes Church of God. The parent company of the Wesley Chapel movie theater where Oulson was shot Monday sent an arrangement of white lilies to the church for the funeral. The world lost a great guy, said neighbor Saverio Mongelli. He was funny, respectful, energetic about life. Oulsons wife was shot in the hand during the dispute at the Pasco County theater. She did not speak at the funeral, but she hugged mourners with her left hand heavily bandaged. In a statement last week, Nicole Oulsons lawyers said she was grieving the death of her husband and comforting the couples 22-month-old daughter. Retired police officer Curtis Reeves has been charged with second-degree murder and held without bail in the shooting. Pasco County Sheriffs officials say Reeves initially asked Oulson to stop texting. Friends have said Oulson was texting his daughters caregiver. According to a sheriffs office report, Reeves spoke to Oulson during the movie previews, then got up and informed management. When Reeves returned to his seat additional words were exchanged and Oulson threw a bag of popcorn at Reeves. Reeves told investigators that Oulson struck him in the face with an unknown object, and thats when he removed a gun from his pants pocket. The report said Reeves fired the gun and struck Oulson once in the chest and that he was in fear of being attacked. have in addition to the manatees that were not calculating into those numbers. CHRONICLE: Looking ahead, is it possible to come up with a brand, a logo or even a concept that will fully represent what the county has to offer visitors? BAYS: I think thats a tall order. As we look at the state and the branding efforts theyve made, you know its the Sunshine State. But I think we also, not only as just tourism, but we need to be looking at this in a more global perspective here in Citrus County and identifying it not only through the efforts of tourism but as a county from the BOCC level (Board of County Commissioners), down to the Economic Development Council, chamber of commerce and all the businesses alike. I think a branding effort should be really a concerted effort between all organizations. CHRONICLE: Sportsrelated tourism has been a growing niche market. Is it an area the county can really build on and expand or is the county limited by its available facilities? BAYS: We can continue to develop that, and I think its a way to get people here who would not necessarily come to this area. But we do have some difficulties in what we have to offer in fields and things they can play on. And as you know, through tourism we are doing a sports feasibility study. Were hopeful that in the next couple of months we should have the full details of that back. But I think its just another one of those opportunities that we utilize. Were not just looking at field sports; were looking at all types of sports, whether its the sculling-rowing events or the Dragon Boat Festival, all types of sporting events. I want people in Citrus County to understand were not just focused on field sports, but all of them. CHRONICLE: How does the visitors bureau determine the financial impact and number of day visitors (visitors who do not rent hotel rooms)? And where do these visitors fit in the overall tourism picture? BAYS: Its a complicated process. Back in 2012, we hired a firm to come in and identify them. They actually did boots on the ground, they had a number of people in their organization come in and survey them. From March to August 2012, we had 204,000 people that we knew about; and between September and December 2012, we had another 90,000; and the total economic impact on our county was about $120million. So its a staggering number sometimes that we just cant equate to. One of the other things thats very difficult for the community to understand in terms of overall economic impact is if we just took the total number of rooms that we have including the bed and breakfasts and campgrounds and it was just on an average nights stay of $75, if we could fill those hotel rooms, the economic impact would be just over $200million in just room revenues collections. CHRONICLE: What is your vision for the new visitors center being planned for Highway 19? BAYS: This is a great opportunity again for the chamber, the EDC and tourism to come in together. One of the things Im excited about is Ive actually reached out and I would love to see what the kids in our county, in the local school system, how they would envision it, what they think about how to engage and interact with visitors coming into the center and what would that look like and what would be of interest. We want to make sure we really focus on and target a cross-section of visitors. Whether its somebody coming in for bicycling or theyre here for the water sports, we think that we have just a lot to offer. Sometimes theyre not very educated about what we have to offer because you just cant see these assets. You drive by on the highways and you dont know that there are 46miles of bike trails, you dont know that theres water out here. We have three first magnitude springs, these are kind of a phenomenon in the world actually and we may even get a fourth first magnitude spring that will be identified by the state later this year. There is a certain amount of people who want to be educated and understand how first magnitude springs work. And we also have the Chassahowitzka findings with the archaeological dig, which they recently did. Most of that will be stored at the Inverness Courthouse. We think that we have some great things that can attract people across various spectrums of ideas. So when we talk about branding thats what makes it difficult. I think weve only picked the low-hanging fruit. We have so many wonderful qualities and attributes here that we can really tag in and find people who have various interests and want this. CHRONICLE: Looking around us, how important is it to have a schedule or a plan for getting Three Sisters open to the public? BAYS: As you can see here today, its a nice chilly day, Im looking, and I can see three manatees right here up close and personal. Not everybody is going to want to get out in a boat and go out into the waters and snorkel, Specifically, if you are not a snorkeler you wouldnt be able to get up in here, you wouldnt be able to get to the edge and see that. We know were missing the opportunity to get folks by land who want to come out and experience the manatees. Thats something we really want to work with. We also know we need a good partnership on that. We need the feds, the state, the city, the economic development council and tourism to all come together, and the county to really come up with a good plan. How we can get Three Sisters opened up with the lack of funding that we know is happening not only throughout the state but is impacting everybody. But we think we can come up with a way to get this opened up and create an opportunity for more tourists to come in and see the great things we have to offer. CHRONICLE: Any other observations on what we might be looking for tourism in 2014? BAYS: We think were going to have great things. We have the Florida Outdoor Writers Association; there will probably be about 125 writers that will be here in September. Were working very closely with them to create what we call a menu of excursions to see all corners of our county. Weve produced three short videos that will be used in Japan, Germany and the U.K. markets to attract visitors. Weve participated in some Brand USA issues to attract the international visitors here. We think we have great things on the forefront. Its looking in a different direction than weve ever looked in the past. So we think were opening doors. Weve just completed our third issue of Visit Citrus magazine, thats drawing more and more people online requesting it. So we think we have a great opportunity to continue this forward movement. I think just by looking at our bed tax collections, on a historical point, we know we are now actually getting true visitors, different from the Progress Energy outage workers we had in the past.

OPINION Page A10MONDAY, JANUARY 20, 2014 War on common sense Has anyone noticed that it appears our government creates a problem then seems surprised when the effects start to appear? For instance: Obamacare has forced many full-time positions across the country to be reduced to part-time; EPA regulations are forcing coal plants to close, (surprise ... job eliminations); and lowering eligibility to receive food stamps. We as a nation have been fighting the war on poverty since (Lyndon B.) Johnson was president, and one would think that by now the problem should be licked! Why isnt it? It could be because you can lead a horse to water, but you cant make him drink. The government cant make a CEO out of a person who is totally content to lay on the couch watching reruns of Law and Order, crossing the days off the calendar, waiting for the first of the month to roll around, yet the wealthy are expected to pick up the tab. Are there some life events that are unfair? Of course there are, but as a whole, individual responsibility has more to do with survival than talking points from the elected officials, whose main goal is to protect their livelihood usually at the demise of yours. Most of us have heard the saying if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The irony of it is the more politically correct we become to protect freedom, the less free we become. Back to the beginning of this letter; if the full-time jobs are reduced to part-time, guess what? Lifestyles are changed. People need to live within their means and quit relying on government for survival. Rely on yourself, family and friends. When hard times roll around, remember a little common sense can go a long way.Charlene Rebmann Inverness The execution of Thomas Knight last week is a textbook case for why Floridas dysfunctional death penalty should be scrapped. Here was a man whose guilt was never in doubt, whose crimes were cold-blooded, whose attitude remained remorseless and often defiant yet the system took nearly 40 years to close the book. In South Florida, Knight will be remembered for abducting and killing a Bay Harbor Islands couple, Sydney and Lillian Gans, in 1974. After a frantic manhunt, he was found hiding in the mud with the rifle used in the crime, and $50,000 cash that hed forced Gans to withdraw from a bank. Ironically, Knight wasnt executed for those murders. In 1980 he fatally stabbed prison guard Richard Burke with a sharpened spoon, and it was that homicide that finally delivered him to the death chamber for a lethal injection. His case had dragged on so long that last year a federal appeals court lamented: To learn about the gridlock and inefficiency of death penalty litigation, look no further than this appeal. The daughter of Sydney and Lillian Gans didnt attend Knights execution because of poor health. At 73, she is now older than her parents were when they were slain. For decades, the dogged maneuvering and serial delays in capital cases have frustrated prosecutors and police, and brought more misery to the victims relatives. There is no workable solution except to repeal the death penalty and replace it with mandatory life sentences. Because appealing a capital case involves both state and federal courts, it cant simply be expedited by legislation. And because people do get wrongly convicted as organizations such as the Innocence Project have demonstrated judges must be cautious and thorough. Convicted of a rape and murder in 1986, Florida Death Row inmate Frankie Lee Smith was exonerated by DNA evidence in December 2000. It was too late. Smith had died of cancer 11 months earlier in prison. For obvious reasons, defense lawyers in death cases strategize to stall, stall and then stall some more. Their job is to keep their clients alive as long as possible. Florida fought 10 years to execute the notorious Ted Bundy, at a cost to taxpayers of about $5million. Theres no calculation as to how much was spent litigating the case of Thomas Knight, who received his first death sentence in 1976, but you can be certain it was a fortune. Set aside for a moment the moral and religious objections to capital punishment, and the questions about its disproportionate application to minorities. Consider the statute strictly as an expensive, endless drain of legal resources. Since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, Florida has averaged slightly more than two executions a year while adding about 12 new residents annually to Death Row. You can do the dismal math in your head. Today 396 men and five women live on Floridas Death Row, and most (if not all) have attorneys working on appeals. The pace could never be described as swift. Knight was no anomaly; many capital cases have been slogging along since the mid-1970s. One of the most infamous is that of James Rose, a house painter convicted of snatching his ex-girlfriends 8-year-old daughter from a Hollywood bowling alley, then killing the girl and dumping her nude body in a canal. The shocking crime happened in October 1976, when Rose was 30 years old. Last month he turned 68, and he continues to file appeals. Multiply his paperwork by 400 and thats what faces the state. On both sides of each marathon case, taxpayers usually get stuck with the legal bills. That wont change, either, unless somebody rips up the Constitution. However richly a killer like Thomas Knight deserved to die for his crimes, the exorbitant cost of executing him is impossible to justify at a time when the courts are understaffed, underfunded and swamped. It would be vastly more economical and efficient to give up on capital punishment and impose mandatory life sentences, as 18 states already do. At this point a death sentence is practically a de facto life sentence, anyway, given the longevity of the appeals process. By the time its over, families of the victims are as wrung out as they are relieved. The day before Knight was put to death, another Death Row veteran named Robert Patten departed without fanfare. Many wont remember who he was, but back in 1981 he shot dead a young Miami police officer named Nathaniel Broom. Patten was first sentenced to die in 1985, appealed, was resentenced to die in 1989, and of course continued to appeal. Twenty-five long years later, he wasnt even executed by the state. Prison officials said he died of natural causes, which isnt uncommon on Death Row due to the aging inmate population. Its time for Florida to get out of the costly execution business, and let cancer and clogged arteries do what the justice system cant.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald.

The laws death couldnt come soon enough. In theory, it was prejudicial, discriminatory, short sighted and ineffective. In practice, it became an expensive exercise in moral selfsatisfaction. The saga, which began here in Citrus County its sponsor, Inverness Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, said he got the idea from someone at Howards Flea Market garnered the state frequent pokes in the eye from national media, and even saw Miami Heraldcolumnist and author Carl Hiaasen challenge state legislators to a, um, drug-testing contest. By the time Judge Scriven put the measure out of its misery for good, it had cost the state hundreds of thousands of dollars and failed so spectacularly that even those who support it in the abstract have nothing but the tatters of bigoted notions of the poor to hold up in its defense. Still, Gov. Rick Scott has vowed to drag the battered, stinking corpse of this legislative loser before an appeals court in an attempt to reanimate it, proving once more that if theres anything certain we can expect from our elected officials, its that they wont let pragmatism get in the way of a good ideological tantrum. To review: The law, passed in 2011, required all applicants for Temporary Assistance for Needy Families welfare, in the vernacular to submit to a drug test as a condition of eligibility. If applicants failed, they would be barred from receiving assistance for a year unless they successfully completed a substance abuse treatment program. Upon failing twice, applicants would be barred from receiving benefits for three years. In an attempt to add a veneer of fairness to a blatantly unconstitutional law, the bill was amended before passage to provide for reimbursement if an applicant tested negative. At around $35 a test, the gesture cost the state $118,140 in reimbursement costs alone, according to the Department of Child ren and Families a net loss of $45,780, and thats sans court costs, staff time and attorneys fees. The law lasted four months July to October before Judge Scriven issued a temporary ban on its enforcement. In those four months, the state tested 4,086 applicants, of which 108 failed. The NIH pegs the average rate of drug use among most working-age Americans at between 23percent and 6percent, depending on age bracket. Floridas foray into drug testing welfare applicants showed a 2.6percent failure rate far below the national average. Either theres a Temperance movement afoot among Floridas welfare applicants or surprise they outsmarted the system. Furthermore, the notion that fewer people tested positive because the specter of a test scared off drug users a favorite of proponents falls on its face because applications for assistance didnt fall during the laws brief season. Yes, people abuse the system. Undoubtedly, there are people obtaining state and federal assistance who are using that money to fuel drug habits. But when studies and empirical evidence prove their numbers few, the moral high ground has been lost. This is not an epidemic, its not worth wasting taxpayers money on, and its reprehensibly vindictive to cast unwarranted suspicion on the innocent many to spite the guilty few. THE ISSUE:Florida law mandating drug testing of welfare applicants ruled unconstitutional.OUR OPINION:A victory for common sense.

Dingy LaGuardia Airport undergoing $3.6B makeover Associated PressNEW YORK Dark, dingy, cramped and sad. These are some of the ways travelers describe LaGuardia Airport, a bustling hub often ranked in customer satisfaction surveys as the worst in America. It does not represent what people think of when they think of New York and Broadway shows and glamour. Its not very pretty, said Layla House, a sales manager for a medical supply company who travels from her home in Bullard, Texas, to New York at least six times a year. Thats about to change. Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently announced the state is taking control of an ambitious $3.6 billion construction project that envisions an entirely new central terminal at LaGuardia, with vast open spaces, restaurants, shopping plazas, new parking garages, free Wi-Fi and other amenities now common in other airports. Cuomo also wants to develop a plan to upgrade cargo operations at nearby John F. Kennedy International Airport. We are going to redevelop those airports the way they should have been redeveloped many, many years ago, Cuomo said in his annual State of the State address. Cuomo, who is running for reelection and has been mentioned as a possible Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, said he had become frustrated that talk of such renovations has been going on since the 1990s with little progress. He wants to jump-start construction just as he has done with a $3.9 billion project to replace the Tappan Zee Bridge, north of New York City, which also had been stalled for years. LaGuardia, along the Flushing and Bowery bays in northern Queens, is the closest of the New York areas three major air hubs to midtown Manhattan, just 8 miles, and it handled a record 27 million passengers last year. Often the first building they see is the sprawling, boomerang-shaped Central Terminal, which opened just in time to receive visitors to the 1964 Worlds Fair. Many passengers say it is like stepping back in time. They immediately encounter low ceilings and dimly lit, narrow hallways. Check-in kiosks are arrayed haphazardly in rows just inside the entrances, where bright green neon lights blare Welcome to LaGuardia Airport. On the west side of the terminal sits a modest food court featuring a hamburger counter, a pizzeria and a Dunkin Donuts. Its probably the worst of all the terminals I go in and out of, said Thomas Smith, a frequent-flying energy company executive from Chicago who has seen buckets on the floor under leaky ceilings and other signs of decay. Theres no real food service other than small snack shops. The gate areas are old. Most passengers have to drag their carry-on bags down a flight of stairs to get from their gates to baggage claim because only one concourse has an escalator. Others have complained that neither Kennedy nor LaGuardia provides free Wi-Fi, something that has been industry standard for years. Built to accommodate 8million passengers a year, the central terminal now handles 12.5million. Cuomo envisions a new terminal that could handle as many as 17.5million passengers by 2030. LaGuardias three other terminals which include the Art Deco-style Marine Air Terminal, where seaplanes landed in the 1940s are not slated for renovation. When you see the difference between these airports and some of these other countries (airports), its shameful, said George Hobica, who runs the website Airfarewatchdog. com. He noted that after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, airports had to install security equipment for luggage and passenger screening. The TSA equipment barely fits at LaGuardia, Hobica said. LaGuardia is just functionally disjointed. In 2012, Travel and Leisure magazine named LaGuardia the nations worst airport, saying it had the dubious honor of ranking the worst for the check-in and security process, the worst for baggage handling, the worst when it comes to providing Wi-Fi, the worst at staff communication, and the worst design and cleanliness. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the airport, concedes the facility is in need of an overhaul and had already begun awarding contracts for preliminary work at LaGuardia. A spokesman said it welcomes the states involvement to expedite the project. Four companies have been asked to submit proposals for the Central Terminal Building project by April 15, and construction is expected to begin by the end of the year. The tricky part will come when construction is fully under way while the airport continues to serve millions. LifeSouth bloodmobile schedule for January.

Philanthropists John and Marcia Goldman are picking up the citys $105,000 tab for allowing Miles Scott, a 5-year-old Northern California boy with leukemia, to fight villains and rescue a damsel in distress as a caped crusader on Nov. 15. City officials said most of the $105,000 in public funds went toward renting a sound system, video screens and other equipment to accommodate the surprisingly large crowds that turned out to see Batkid, who became a social media darling.NJ mayor points finger at ChristieTRENTON, N.J. The Democratic mayor of a town severely flooded by superstorm Sandy said Sunday that she was told an ultimatum tying recovery funds to her support for a prime real estate project came directly from Republican Gov. Chris Christie, a claim a Christie spokesman called categorically false. Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer said she met with federal prosecutors in Newark for several hours Sunday at their request and turned over a journal and other documents. I will provide any requested information and testify under oath about the facts of what happened when the Lieutenant Governor came to Hoboken and told me that Sandy aid would be contingent on moving forward with a private development project, she said in a statement Sunday night.

Leaders for the warring sides in South Sudan's monthlong internal conflict say they are close to signing a cease-fire. Panama Canal work not likely to be halted PANAMA CITY The Spanish-led consortium handling the biggest part of the Panama Canal expansion said Sunday it does not foresee halting work Monday, although it warned that remains an option if there is no resolution to a financial dispute. The canal-building group known as United for the Canal said in a brief statement that a stoppage is not a scenario being considered at this moment. But it said the group is entitled to suspend work any time after Monday. The group had given Panamanian Canal authorities a Sunday deadline to come up with the funds to cover $1.6 billion in cost overruns. The authority insisted the consortium live up to the terms of the original contract. No agreement had been reached as of Sunday.UN invites Iran to Syrian talksBEIRUT The United Nations on Sunday invited Iran to attend an international meeting of foreign ministers in the Swiss city of Montreux ahead of the first direct peace talks between the warring Syrian sides in the nearly threeyear conflict. But it was not clear how Syrias main Westernbacked opposition group, the Syrian National Coalition, would react to the invitation to Iran. The Coalition, under huge pressure from its Western and Arab supporters, had agreed late Saturday to attend the Geneva peace talks. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon told reporters at U.N. headquarters that he had issued the invitation to Iran after lengthy talks in recent days with Iranian Foreign Minister Javid Zarif.Mexico objects to US executionMEXICO CITY The Mexican government said Sunday it strongly rejects the execution scheduled this week in Texas of a Mexican man convicted of killing a police officer. The Foreign Relations Department said in a statement that executing Edgar Tamayo would be yet another U.S. violation of an international treaty involving such cases. Tamayo is set for lethal injection Wednesday for the 1994 fatal shooting of a police officer who had arrested him for a robbery. Mexico has been asking the United Sates to halt Tamayos execution because the inmate wasnt told he could get legal help from the Mexican government as agreed under the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. World BRIEFS From wire reports Iran to start nuclear deal Associated PressTEHRAN, Iran Ahead of the start of a nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, an official in the Islamic Republic called limiting uranium enrichment and diluting its stockpile the countrys most important commitments, state radio reported Sunday. The comments by Behrouz Kamalvandi, a spokesman for Irans atomic department, show how the government of moderate President Hassan Rouhani welcomes the deal, which begins today. International inspectors also already have arrived in Tehran, preparing for the government opening its facilities to them. Implementation of mutual commitments in the framework of the Geneva deal will begin from tomorrow, Kamalvandi said. Under the agreement, suspension of 20-percent enrichment of uranium and the diluting of the current stockpile of enriched uranium are the most important commitments of our country. Iran struck the deal in November with the socalled P5+1 countries Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States. Negotiators agreed to final terms of the deal Jan. 13. Under the agreement, Iran will limit its uranium enrichment to 5percent the grade commonly used to power reactors. The deal also commits Iran to stop producing 20percent enriched uranium which is only a technical step away from weapons-grade material and to neutralize its 20percent stockpile over the six months. In exchange, economic sanctions Iran faces would be eased for six months. Senior officials in U.S. President Barack Obamas administration have put the total relief figure at some $7billion. During the six months, negotiations between Iran and the world powers would continue in hopes of reaching a permanent deal. Gay Republicans trying to make election history Associated PressMANCHESTER, N.H. Dan Innis husband persuaded him to run for the U.S. House. It didnt matter that Innis, a former business school dean, faced an aggressive Democratic incumbent, GOP colleagues who oppose his right to marry, and history no Republican ever has been openly gay when first elected to Congress. He said, Youve got to do this, recalls Innis, running in the 1st Congressional District, which covers most of eastern New Hampshire. He said, You need to take this opportunity and see if you can make a difference. Innis plays down his sexuality as a campaign issue, but acknowledges the historic undertones. He is among three openly gay Republicans nationwide expected to run in this years midterm elections. None has an easy path to Washington. Each ultimately must unseat a Democratic incumbent, overcome brushes with hate and confront passionate divisions within the GOP about the way they live their lives. The Republican Party is trying to soften its tone on divisive social issues, but many religious conservatives see homosexuality as immoral. Innis is married to a man, as is former state Sen. Richard Tisei, R-Mass., who is expected to run again for the northeastern Massachusetts congressional seat he narrowly lost in 2012 to Democratic Rep. John Tierney. In San Diego, former Republican city councilman Carl DeMaio is challenging first-term Democratic Rep. Scott Peters. You cant focus on any of the nasty comments or attacks not just from far right, also from far left, DeMaio said. During his unsuccessful 2012 Republican mayoral campaign, DeMaio and his male partner of six years were booed as they walked hand in hand in San Diegos gay pride parade. Every once in a while well get some hate that is truly over the top a truly venomous voice mail message. Every time we need a liftme-up, we play it and chuckle, DeMaio said. Its just a reminder that what were fighting for matters. He is fighting his own party, too. The GOPs formal platform, as set in its 2012 national convention, declares that marriage, the union of one man and one woman, must be upheld as the national standard. Republican opposition to gay marriage has become less visible recently as the GOP works to improve its image and polling suggests that most Americans support same-sex marriage. Prominent social conservatives such as former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and Ralph Reed, former leader of the Christian Coalition, declined to be interviewed for this story. Associated PressProtesters clash with riot police Sunday in central Kiev, Ukraine. Anti-government protests in Ukraines capital escalated into fiery street battles with police Sunday as thousands of demonstrators hurled rocks and firebombs to set police vehicles ablaze. Dozens of officers and protesters were injured. Ukraine protests turn into fiery street battles in capital Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Antigovernment protests in Ukraines capital escalated into fiery street battles with police Sunday as thousands of demonstrators hurled rocks and firebombs to set police vehicles ablaze. Dozens of officers and protesters were injured. Police responded with stun grenades, tear gas and water cannons, but were outnumbered by the protesters. Many of the riot police held their shields over their heads to protect themselves from the projectiles thrown by demonstrators on the other side of a cordon of buses. The violence was a sharp escalation of Ukraines two-month political crisis, which has brought round-the-clock protest gatherings, but had been largely peaceful. Opposition leader Vitali Klitschko tried to persuade demonstrators to stop their unrest, but failed and was sprayed by a fire extinguisher in the process. Klitschko later traveled to President Viktor Yanukovychs suburban residence and said the president has agreed to negotiate. There are only two ways for events to develop. The first one is not to negotiate, Klitschko was quoted as saying by the Interfax news agency. A scenario of force can be unpredictable and I dont rule out the possibility of a civil war. ... And here we are using all possibilities in order to prevent bloodshed. Yanukovych said later on his website that he has tasked a working group, headed by national security council head Andriy Klyuev, to meet with opposition representatives to work out a solution to the crisis. However, it was unclear if either side was prepared for real compromise; throughout the crisis, the opposition has insisted on the governments resignation and calling early presidential elections. The White House blamed the increased tensions on Ukraines government for failing to acknowledge its peoples legitimate grievances, and threatened sanctions if the use of violence continues. National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said Ukraines government has moved to weaken the foundations of Ukraines democracy by criminalizing peaceful protest and stripping civil society and political opponents of key democratic protections under the law. She called on Ukraine to repeal recent laws limiting protests, remove riot police from downtown Kiev and start talking to the opposition. The U.S. will continue to consider additional steps including sanctions in response to the use of violence, Hayden said in a statement. The crisis erupted in November after Yanukovychs decision to freeze ties with the European Union and seek a huge bailout from Russia. The decision sparked protests, which increased in size and determination after police twice violently dispersed demonstrators.

The Seahawks won 23-17. Associated PressDenver wide receiver Demaryius Thomas breaks a tackle Sunday by New England strong safety Steve Gregory during the AFC Championship game in Denver. The Broncos advanced to the Super Bowl with a 26-16 victory. Associated PressDENVER Peyton Manning stuffed the football into his helmet and handed it to an equipment man for safekeeping. The connection: Flawless, as usual. The keepsake: Certainly one hell want to hang on to. The Broncos quarterback had an answer for everyone Sunday from Tom Brady to the New England defense to anyone who thought he couldnt win the big one. Manning is taking the Broncos on a trip to New York for the Super Bowl after another of his impeccably crafted victories this time, a 26-16 win over the Patriots on Sunday in the AFC title game. Being in my 16th season, going to my third Super Bowl, I know how hard it is to get there, Manning said. Especially this time. Hes less than three years removed from being unable to throw a football because of his surgically ravaged neck and nerve endings, and a bit over a year has passed since a devastating loss to Baltimore derailed what looked like a Super Bowl trip in his comeback season. A year later, however, Manning will get his chance for his second Super Bowl ring. Hell try to become the first starting quarterback to win one with two different teams, at the Meadowlands on Feb. 2 against Seattle, who defeated San Francisco for the NFC championship. Hes been remarkable, said Broncos coach John Fox, off to his second Super Bowl as a head coach. Its unprecedented what he did. After packing away his football, Manning ran to the 30-yard line to shake hands with Brady. A bit later in the locker room, he celebrated with his father, Archie, and brothers Cooper and Eli, the Giants quarterback who surprised Peyton much the way Peyton surprised him by showing up at the NFC title game two years ago. The Indy-turned-Denver quarterback improved to 5-10 lifetime against Brady, but is now 2-1 in AFC title games. Associated PressSEATTLE The Seattle Seahawks are bringing their gamechanging defense and the 12th Man to the Big Apple for the Super Bowl. Seattles top-ranked defense forced three fourth-quarter turnovers, and Russell Wilson threw a 35-yard touchdown pass on fourth down for the winning points in a 23-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC title Sunday. Seattle will meet Denver (15-3) for the NFL title in two weeks in the New Jersey Meadowlands. Its the first trip to the big game for the Seahawks (15-3) since they lost to Pittsburgh after the 2005 season. The conference champs had the best records in the league this year, the first time the top seeds have gotten to the Super Bowl since the 2010 game. Moments after Richard Sherman tipped Colin Kaepernicks pass to teammate Malcolm Smith for the clinching interception, the All-Pro cornerback jumped into the stands behind the end zone, saluting the Seahawks raucous fans. With 12th Man flags waving everywhere, and New York, New York blaring over the loudspeakers, CenturyLink Field rocked like never before. Thats as sweet as it gets, Sherman said. This is really special, added coach Pete Carroll, who has turned around the Seahawks in four seasons in charge. It would really be a mistake to not remember the connection and the relationship between this football team and the 12th Man and these fans. Its unbelievable. San Francisco (14-5) led 17-13 when Wilson, given a free play as Aldon Smith jumped offside, hurled the ball to Jermaine Kearse, who made a leaping catch in the end zone. Steven Hauschka then kicked his third field goal, and Smith intercepted in the end zone on the 49ers final possession. This feels even sweeter, with the amazing support we have had from the 12th Man, team owner Paul Allen said, comparing this Super Bowl trip to the previous one. Until Seattles top-ranked defense forced a fumble and had two picks in the final period, the game was marked by big offensive plays in the second half. That was somewhat shocking considering the strength of both teams defenses. And those plays came rapidly. Marshawn Lynch, in full Beast Mode, ran over a teammate and then outsped the 49ers to the corner of the end zone for a 40-yard TD, making it 10-10. Kaepernick then was responsible for consecutive 22-yard gains, hitting Michael Crabtree, then rushing to the Seattle 28. His fumble on the next play was recovered by center Jonathan Goodwin, who even lumbered for 2 yards. Anquan Boldin outleapt AllPro safety Thomas on the next play for a 26-yard touchdown. Then, Doug Baldwin, who played for 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh at Stanford, stepped up and through San Franciscos coverage on a scintillating 69yard kickoff return that made the stadium shake for the first Sharapova bounced out at Australian Open Joins Serena Williams as early upset victim Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia Maria Sharapova followed Serena Williams out of the Australian Open after the second fourth-round upset in 24 hours. Third-seeded Sharapova lost 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 to Dominika Cibulkova today, struggling with her serve in the second and third sets and making 45 unforced errors as she tried to claw her way back. Her serve started to backfire from the eighth game, when she was broken at love while trying to serve out the first set. During a run of four breaks against her, Sharapova won only three points on her own serve and fell 5-0 behind in the second set. The four-time major winner rallied to win four straight games before Cibulkova held to level the match. After taking an offcourt medical time out after the second set for a hip strain, she was broken immediately and had seven double-faults in the third set. The pair hadnt played since Sharapovas quarterfinal win at Wimbledon in 2011. Now theyre evenly split in six head-toheads, but Cibulkova has won two of their three matches at the majors with her win today and her quarterfinal victory at the 2009 French Open. Cibulkova raced to a 5-0 lead in the second set before tightening up and letting Sharapova back into the match. She was more steady in the third, when she didnt even face a break point. I was never doubting myself, the No. 20seeded Cibulkova said, adding that Ivanovics win over Williams the previous day had been motivational but not her main inspiration against Sharapova. It was a great match for Ana. But this was a different story. I already beat Maria before and I beat her at a major. Top-ranked Williams, a five-time Australian Open champion, was knocked out in a three-set loss to 14th-seeded Ana Ivanovic on Sunday, and later revealed she had a back problem that had her considering withdrawing from the tournament. The absence of two of the biggest stars in womens tennis opens up the draw for twotime defending champion Victoria Azarenka, who defeated No. 13-seeded Sloane Stephens today. Associated PressDominika Cibulkova makes a backhand return Monday to Maria Sharapova during their fourth round match at the Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia. Cibulkova stunned the No. 3 seed in three sets.

The league released the list of early entrants Sunday and said the number has risen six straight seasons. The deadline for underclassmen to apply was Jan. 15. Last year, 73 underclassmen entered the draft. The year before it was 65 and in 2011 it was 56. Also, four players who recently graduated and still have eligibility left are joining the draft class but arent included in the number. Most notable among those is Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Southern California defensive back Dion Bailey, Arizona State linebacker Carl Bradford and Alabama linebacker Adrian Hubbard are also juniors who have informed the league they have graduated. Among the early entrants expected to be selected near the top of the draft are Manziel, the Texas A&M quarterback, Clowney, the defensive end from South Carolina, and Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins. The draft is May 8-10 in New York. LSU for the second straight season had the most players of any school to leave early. The Tigers had seven early entrants this season, including wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr., after 11 LSU players left early last year. Alabama and Southern California each had five leave early, along with California. Cal, which went 1-11, has six players listed among the early entrants, but that includes defensive end Chris McCain, who was dismissed from the team in September. National champion Florida State lost four players early, including All-America defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and receiver Kelvin Benjamin, who caught the winning touchdown in the BCS championship game against Auburn. Notre Dame, Florida and South Carolina also had four early entrants.
SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE time all day. That set up Hauschkas 40-yard field goal. And a frantic finish. Seattle took its first lead on Wilsons throw to Kearse with 13:44 left, and CenturyLink rocked again. The place went silent soon after when Niners All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman sustained an ugly left knee injury midway and was carted off. Bowman, who was having a huge game, had forced a fumble at the San Francisco 1, but Lynch recovered. The Seahawks had gotten their first turnover moments earlier when Cliff Avril stripped Kaepernick and Michael Bennett recovered. But Lynch and Wilson botched a handoff on fourth down on the play after Bowmans injury. It took only two plays for Kam Chancellor to haul in Kaepernicks underthrow to Boldin, and Hauschkas 47-yarder ended the scoring. But not the excitement. Kaepernick, who rushed for 130 yards, got San Francisco to the Seattle 18 with his arm. But his pass for Crabtree was brilliantly tipped by Sherman to Smith. We knew it would come down to us in the back end to win this thing, Sherman said. And now its on to New Jersey, where Carroll once coached the Jets for a season. That didnt end well he was fired so the team could hire Rich Kotite. He heads back with a chance to add a Super Bowl crown to two national titles as coach at Southern California Though Manning threw for 400 yards, it more dink-and-dunk than a fireworks show in this, the 15th installment of the NFLs two best quarterbacks of a generation. Manning set up four field goals by Matt Prater and put his stamp on this one with a pair of long, meticulous and mistake-free touchdown drives in which nothing came cheap. He geared down the no-huddle, hurry-up offense that helped him set records for touchdown passes and yardage this season and made the Broncos the highest-scoring team in history. The result: 93and 80-yard touchdown drives that each lasted a few seconds over seven minutes; they were the two longest, time-wise, of the season for the Broncos (15-3). The Broncos held the ball for 35:44. They were 7 for 13 on third-down conversions. To keep Tom Brady on the sideline is a good thing, Manning said. Thats something you try to do when youre playing the Patriots. Manning capped the second long drive with a 3-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas, who got inside the overmatched Alfonzo Dennard and left his feet to make the catch. It gave Denver a 20-3 lead midway through the third quarter. From there, it was catch-up time for Brady and the Pats (13-5), and they are not built for that at least not this year. We got in a hole there, Brady said. It was just too much to dig our way out. A team that averaged more than 200 yards on the ground the last three games didnt have much quick-strike capability. Brady, who threw for most of his 277 yards in comeback mode, actually led the Patriots to a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns. But they were a pair of time-consuming, 80-yard drives. The second cut the deficit to 26-16 with 3:07 left, but the Broncos stopped Shane Vereen on the 2-point conversion and the celebration was on in Denver. Losing is never easy, Patriots defensive lineman Rob Ninkovich said. But when you have somebody as talented as (Manning), who puts in as much work and effort, and has done it for so long, its a little bit easier to swallow. This game started getting out of hand at about the same time Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib went out with a knee injury. Nobody else could cover Thomas, and Manning, who finds mismatches even under the toughest of circumstances, found this one quickly. Talibs an excellent player, Manning said, but Demaryius was going to be a big part of the game plan, either way. Thomas finished with seven catches for 134 yards, including receptions of 26 and 27 yards that set up a field goal for a 13-3 lead before the half. Not a bad day for a player who tweaked his knee last week and was limited in practice Friday. Denver got the ball to start the third quarter and Manning hit Thomas for 15 and 4 yards as part of the 80-yard, 7:08 touchdown drive that gave Denver the 17-point lead. New England came up a win short of the Super Bowl for the second straight year. There were a lot of opportunities in the game that if we were able to coach better, play better, execute better in any of those areas, it would have given us a chance, New England coach Bill Belichick said.

Mark Barberio scored his first two career goals and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 on Sunday to move into a tie for first place in the Atlantic Division. Ondrej Palat had a goal and two assists, and he and Barberio scored 1:23 apart during the Lightnings three-goal first period that also included a goal from Nikita Kucherov. Teddy Purcell also scored for the Lightning, who pulled even with Boston atop the division with 62 points. Ben Bishop made a career-high 48 saves for Tampa Bay. He shut out the Hurricanes in his only other two appearances in Raleigh, including a 3-0 victory on Nov. 1. Alexander Semin, Eric Staal and Ron Hainsey each scored after Carolina fell behind 4-0. Justin Peters gave up three goals on seven shots and exited with 4:53 left in the first.Blackhawks 3, Bruins 2, SOCHICAGO Patrick Kane scored in a shootout to lift the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins in a rematch of last seasons Stanley Cup finals.

Larrazabal wins Abu Dhabi Championship after penalties to McIlroy and Mickelson Associated PressABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates Spains Pablo Larrazabal shot a final round 67 to end a near three-year winless drought to capture the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on Sunday. Larrazabal, 30, won by a stroke with a 14-under par 274 on the National Course in the UAE capital. Rory McIlroy (68), who had incurred a twostroke penalty a day earlier, finished with a share of second place with Phil Micklelson (69) on 13-under. It means a lot to win my third victory on Tour and playing against who I played today, said Larrazabal. Of course, I play against myself but I knew who I also had behind me in Mickelson. I have just beaten two of the three most talented guys in my era, and in the last era, as well in Phil Mickelson and Rory. Mickelson was left counting the cost of incurring a shot penalty after a double hit while playing from brush on the 13th hole of the National course. The British Open champion, who was leading at the time, finished the hole with a triplebogey seven. I was sitting at the presentation ceremony I said to myself: Pablo? What are you doing here? Ive got Rory McIlroy on my left and I am shaking the hand of Phil Mickelson on my right. Its very special for me, added Larrazabal after collecting the trophy. But its been a long journey and a lot of work since my last win in Munich, and only my team and my family know how hard I have worked for this victory with no holidays, and not too many days off this winter, just working hard to arrive here properly and in form to Abu Dhabi. So, yes happy days. While Mickelson was returning home for his first PGA event of the New Year, at this coming weeks Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, McIlroy is returning to nearby Dubai to continue working on his game. It is the second occasion in three years he has let slip victory in Abu Dhabi because of a rules violation. It happens, it happens but it never crossed my mind I might double hit it, Mickelson said. I was just trying to dribble it out of the bush because I couldnt get the unplayable penalty lie to give me a shot without stroke and distance and I felt it was worth the risk. It not only cost a penalty shot, but it also stopped the ball from going to a spot where I could hit again. So after that I got refocused and got aggressive and made some birdies and gave myself a chance. If Pablo had not birdied the last hole to win, I would have gotten into a play-off, and so I give him a lot of credit for finishing the tournament off the right way, he added. McIlroy had been penalized for illegally brushing sand off his line on the final day of the 2012 event before losing by a stroke to Englands Robert Rock. On Saturday, the double Major winner was slapped with a two-shot penalty after being reported by the caddy of another player in not taking full relief from a spectator cross walk. I cant describe how frustrating it is and feeling like I should be standing here at 15-under par for the tournament and winning by one, McIlroy said. It is a very positive start to the season so Im not to let one little negative ruin that. It was not to I finished one behind on the 18th that it started he o dawn on me if what happened yesterday had not happened, I would have won. But Pablo played well, and I cant take anything away from him. When he needed to, he hit the shots, and the two shots he hit into 18 were straight out of the drawer, so fair play to him. Its good to see. Hes a good guy, one of my closer friends out here and good to see him get the win. Larrazabal moved into seventh place in the Race to Dubai and to 12th on the European Ryder Cup Team points table. As well, the current World No. 103 ranked player should move inside the top-64 on the rankings when they are adjusted today and that will guarantee the Spaniard a first-ever place in next months Accenture Match-Play Championship in Arizona.Reed holds on to win Humana ChallengeLA QUINTA, Calif. Patrick Reed lost his putting touch for a few hours in the final round of the Humana Challenge. He found it when things were getting interesting. After shooting three straight 9-under 63s to open a seven-stroke lead, Reed had a 1-under 71 on Sunday at PGA Wests Arnold Palmer Private Course to beat Ryan Palmer by two strokes. Finally resembling the guy who talked Saturday about being in a putting coma, Reed ran in an 18-footer for birdie on the par-3 15th to push his advantage to three strokes and parred the final three holes. He completed the wire-to-wire victory at 28-under 260. The 23-year-old Reed also won the Wyndham Championship in August. Palmer made a 15-foot eagle putt on the final hole for a 63.Langer wins Champions opener by three strokesKAUPULEHU-KONA, Hawaii Bernhard Langer birdied five of the last six holes Sunday to pull away from Fred Couples and Jeff Sluman and win the Mitsubishi Electric Championship by three strokes. The 56-year-old German shot his second straight 64 in the final round of the winners-only event that opened the 35th season of the Champions Tour. He finished with a 54-hole total of 22-under 194 at Hualalai. Langer and Couples shared the lead at 14 under going into the final day. Sluman was two back, but surged ahead at the turn, his fifth birdie putt taking him to 17 under. Langer and Couples caught him at 18 under with birdies on No. 13. Langer just kept rolling, two-putting for birdie on the next hole to grab the lead alone, then draining three more birdie putts from inside 12 feet. Sluman closed with a 65. Couples, looking for his 10th Champions win and second in a row, had a 67.

SPORTS BRIEFSAP source: NFL gets Thursday TV bidsSEATTLE All four of the NFLs network partners have bid on the Thursday night television package, a person with knowledge of the bidding process told The Associated Press on Sunday. The league has used its NFL Network to televise the games, but recently put up the 13-game series for bids and received them from NBC, Fox, CBS and ESPN. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the bidders are not being made public. Turner Sports has also bid, and theres a strong possibility ESPN would put the games on ABC should it be chosen by the league. Fox has launched Fox Sports 1 and NBC has its own cable sports network, NBCSN, both of which would benefit greatly from an NFL presence. The NFL also has expressed a desire to simulcast the games on NFL Network. NFL Network began airing an eight-game package in 2006, which increased to 13 in 2012. Viewership for Thursday night games has been significantly lower than for other packages, but the NFL still is king of the TV ratings. Thursday night games averaged 8 million viewers on NFL Network this past season, the days most-watched program on cable TV each week.No. 14 Iowa blows past Minnesota 94-73IOWA CITY, Iowa Aaron White scored all of his 18 points in the second half and Josh Oglesby added a season-high 17 points as 14th-ranked Iowa blew past Minnesota 94-73 on Sunday. Devyn Marble had 15 of his 16 points after halftime for the surging Hawkeyes, who moved into third place in the Big Ten behind Michigan State and Michigan. Iowa (15-3, 4-1 Big Ten) overcame a 10-point deficit with a 29-10 run and outscored the Gophers 53-30 in the second half. Andre Hollins had a game-high 20 points for Minnesota (14-5, 3-3). But Iowa held Hollins without a field goal in the second half in handing the Gophers their most lopsided loss of the season. The Hawkeyes notched their 20th straight home win one shy of the CarverHawkeye Arena record. Iowa is now a game back of Michigan for second place in the league but it won't have to wait long for a shot at the Wolverines. Michigan hosts the Hawkeyes on Wednesday. From wire reports
MONDAY, JANUARY20, 2014 B5CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Wayne Gretzky, the ice hockey superstar who surprisingly won the Stanley Cup only four times (the record for a player is 11, held by Henri Richard of the Montreal Canadiens), said, You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take. Experts carry a fair number of percentages around in their heads. Less capable players know a few. This means that when two lines of play present themselves, the expert can usually calculate which is mathematically better. But someone else might have to rely on instinct. In this example, how should South play in three no-trump after West leads the club queen? North might have used Stayman to try to find a 4-4 major-suit fit. However, with his points in his short suits, it was reasonable to raise to three no-trump. Using Stayman is fine when you have a 4-4 major-suit fit and game in that suit makes. But when you do not have a fit, employing Stayman just gives the defenders extra information about declarers hand. South starts with seven top tricks: one spade, one heart, three diamonds and two clubs. If declarer can take five diamond tricks, he will be home. But should he cash the top honors or start with a finesse of dummys 10? A priori, a 3-3 split has a probability of 35.53 percent. Most players know that. But few will be aware that the finessing line will work 42 percent of the time, making it the preferable choice. Win the first trick with your club ace, play a diamond to dummys 10, cash the diamond queen, and claim nine tricks. In general, try not to bank everything on a 3-3 split.

My daughter is still grieving, which I fully understand, but her grief has turned her into an angry and jealous person. My husband and I are the only family she has. When she married, she moved close to her husbands friends, but after he died, they did not keep in touch. She went for counseling right afterward, but said the counselor could not help her because he couldnt give her what she wanted. She refuses to see a doctor for anti-anxiety medication or an antidepressant. I want to be helpful and supportive, but her difficult personality is now putting a strain on our health, not to mention our marriage. We call her a few times a day and are always here if she needs to talk, but she is so angry and hateful that every conversation becomes stressful. How much support must we offer? I would like to entertain people again and perhaps travel, but we would feel guilty leaving her on her own. No Name, No State, Please Dear No Name: You may think you are helping your daughter, but you are actually enabling her to be emotionally dependent on you, allowing her to avoid dealing with her own issues. You need to scale back. Encourage her to seek counseling again or to attend a grief support group through a local hospital or hospice. Then plan your vacations and your entertainment. You can still stay in touch as often as you wish. She may object to your having a life while she doesnt, but that is her choice. Dear Annie: I am in my 80s and live a great distance from my grandchildren. I always send them cards (with money) for birthdays and Christmas, but seldom, if ever, do I get a thank you, whether written or oral. Thats bad enough. But when it is my birthday, I get a card from my children with the names of my grandchildren included. These grandkids are in their late 20s and do not live with their parents. At what point do they start taking responsibility for sending their own cards? I would love to get a card directly from my grandchildren, signed by them in their own handwriting, making it more personal. How do I arrange this? Neglected Grandma Dear Grandma: This is actually something your children should have taught their own kids, but instead, they are covering for them so you dont feel youve been forgotten. We dont believe your grandchildren are deliberately ignoring these occasions. We think they are oblivious to how much it means to you. If you have a good relationship with your grandchildren, tell them that youd appreciate a card for your birthday directly from them. Ask whether they have your address. If you have email, suggest they send you an e-card. When your birthday is due, remind them in a lighthearted, humorous way. We hope they come through. Dear Annie: This is in response to Concerned Water Conservator, who is amazed at the amount of water people waste. Since my town decided to charge for every drop that residents use, I place an empty pan to catch gray water in my kitchen and bathroom sinks, and I use a bucket in the shower to catch the cold water as its warming up. I then use the water for my vegetable garden and cleaning the house. Both my son and I turn off the shower while soaping down, then turn it on when were ready to rinse. I was amazed at how much water I wasted. Nebraska Dear Nebraska: Thanks for the great suggestions. Annies Snippet (credit Martin Luther King Jr.): Procrastination is still the thief of time.
