Drawing on her experience as an ultra-marathon runner and race organizer, she has planned an event mixing fitness and fun to introduce long-distance walking and running. It is designed to appeal to ultra-competitors, recreational runners and people who just want to challenge themselves by participating in an organized event. Its for all ages and all abilities of runners and walkers, the Inverness resident said. You choose how long or how far you want to go. Hayes became an ultramarathon runner races more than 26.2 miles long back in 1983. I fell in love with them, she recalled. I loved the challenge, I loved the camaraderie. Ultra runners are a different breed of people. She described them as very social, concerned about other runners with a bond among runners not found at the shorter distances. But as the sport grew and more people got involved, it became faster, more competitive and more expensive with more rules. And with the boom in popularity, race directors began putting on events to make money off the runners, doing them as a business and imposing cutoff times for slower runners to speed up the event. What happened to me was, I got old and I got slow, she said. I never had to worry about cutoff times until I got into my 60s. PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe Whispering Pines 12 Hour Run/Walk will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, at Whispering Pines Park in Inverness. It will be run on an approximately 4.5-mile winding loop using the parks wooded trails. Participants will run and/or walk the loop as many times as they want during the 12 hours.

Civil Rights anthem taken from a gospel spiritual, author unknownNANCYKENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVERThe Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., had a dream of a colorblind society, and while we as a nation are making progress, were not there yet. On Monday, as the community of Crystal River gathered for a parade and a celebration at Copeland Park of Dr. Kings dream of racial unity and equality, remnants of racism threatened to spoil it. Walking into the park fresh from her participation in the parade, Carol Bowers told a reporter about a person with a big Confederate flag staring her down. Ted Holmes said a To reach the mountain top STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleCarol Bowers, vice president of the Afro American Club of Citrus County, greets bystanders at the ninth annual Martin Luther King parade in Crystal River Monday morning. See KING/ Page A2 MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerAn interim Citrus Memorial hospital administrator is expected to cost the hospital $30,000 to $40,000 a month in salary and expenses until the transaction with a Tennessee company takes place. A committee comprised of two members each of the Citrus County Hospital Board and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation met Monday night to begin the expedited process of recommending a chief executive officer to replace Ryan Beaty, whose resignation takes effect March 15. According to the agreement that settles three legal cases between the two boards, the committee must have a recommendation to the foundation board by Feb. 15. After discussion, committee members said they will ask their respective boards to change that deadline date to March 1.

couple of men in a truck drove by and gave them the finger. Right here, today, on the day of Martin Luther King Jr., it still exists, Bowers said. And yet, its better than it was at one time, they both said. Holmes, a retired fire chief, recalled his early days as a firefighter in Washington, D.C., where the firehouse had segregated beds. When you came on shift, there was a bed chart on the wall, which told you which bed to sleep in, he said. Certain beds had a letter C on them. I was new I thought the C meant chief. We couldnt eat meals with the rest of the firefighters, either. We had common plates that we all shared, and I noticed that after Id eat and wash my plate someone would come along and break my plate. That happened in the nations capital! I ended up suing the city to stop some of their practices, he said. It took a long time, but we won. It was a struggle all the way. He said not too many years ago in Jacksonville, he would go out on an emergency call and be refused entry into someones home. Youre there to help people and theyre saying, Well wait for someone else to come. But things are getting better, he said. Not too many practice overt racism and discrimination its gone from overt to covert. It still exists, but its dying out as the older people die off. You hate to say it that way, but thats the way it is. Longtime Crystal River resident Raye Joyner said she believes the younger generations are becoming increasingly racially colorblind, which was Dr. Kings dream. I was part of the march with (Dr. King), and I went to jail for the cause, she said. The younger people today dont understand the struggle, because they can go to school together. When youre small, when youre together, you dont see color, and thats how it should be. The problem is the older generation, she said. They still have it in them. Its what they were taught, and for some its hard to let go. With younger people today, I see a much better cohesiveness. She added that its important to keep teaching the younger generation about the struggles they went through and about Kings dream so they can better appreciate the strides that have been made. We have to keep on fighting, even though we dont need to fight like we used to, Joyner said. We still need to keep hope and keep the dream alive.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com.A2TUESDAY, JANUARY21, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL 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.

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, young ladies with a current high school or home-school identification are invited to transform into princesses at the annual Cinderellas Closet at Cornerstone Baptist Church, 1100 W. Highland Blvd., Inverness. Cinderellas Closet a free high school prom dress giveaway is a ministry of the Working Christian Women group, under the umbrella of Cornerstone Baptist Church. In 2008 our minister challenged us to have an outreach ministry, said co-coordinator Dana Davis. I already had one in mind. My daughter was going to college and we were cleaning out her closets. She had two prom dresses and I didnt want to trash them. We talked about how nice it would be if there was a place where girls could go and get dresses for their daughters, especially for people who were struggling. Eager to help, the first year proved to be an answered prayer, since 35 girls had more than 300 dresses to choose from. It helps me have faith in people again, Davis said. This year organizers are expecting a surplus of 1,500 dresses to serve more than 200 girls. Those girls need it, and you dont know what they are getting anywhere else, said cocoordinator Lindsey Taylor. If you can make that one day special for them it will stay with them forever. The whole community has come out and poured out to the young ladies and those who need it, added co-coordinator Melinda Ferguson. It is so amazing at the end because they have been so loved-on throughout the entire process. Ferguson said in each princess team three volunteers act as a girls fairy godmothers. They take a girl, love and gush on them and wait hand and foot on them. Girls are offered a variety of colors, styles and lengths, and many dresses are considered the latest styles. There are approximately 100 dresses in each size from 3 and larger; however, Davis is looking for donations of more dry-cleaned gorgeous girls dresses sizes 20 and larger or donations of $10 to have the dresses dry cleaned. The photographer told me that when she is photographing the girls on prom day that their selfconfidence is just oozing out of them, when they dont come into Cinderellas Closet that way, Davis said. We want them to know that they are loved no matter what, and that they are beautiful. Whatever society tells us is beautiful is not. Shoes, purses, jewelry, accessories and onsite alterations are also available while supplies last. Davis will coordinate with the high schools for professionals and volunteers to assist with the girls hairdos, makeup and photography for the day of the Citrus County proms. While volunteers are waiting with open arms for their princesses, they ask for some donations from the public to help make the day unforgettable rhinestone jewelry, already drycleaned girls dresses, clothes racks with wheels, food, hair gift certificates, dry cleaning gift certificates, Disney princess shower curtains and another climatecontrolled storage unit. Drop-off locations for donations are Cornerstone Baptist Church, Village Cadillac, Nick Nicholas Ford and Venero and Sons. WHAT: Cinderellas Closet. WHEN: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 1. WHERE: Cornerstone Baptist Church, 1100 W. Highland Blvd., Inverness.

Special to the ChronicleNature Coast EMS team members and community leaders recently completed A Matter of Balance coaches training through Elder Options of Gainesville and are now available to help seniors in Citrus County. Falling has nothing to do with aging, however, as people get older, they tend to exercise less, thus their strength, flexibility and mobility decreases. A Matter of Balance emphasizes realistic behavior for participants to learn how to control their fear of falling, set goals to increase activity, look for risk factors that could pose a threat of falling in their home and exercise to increase strength and balance. A Matter of Balance is wellsuited for assisted-living facilities, homeowner associations and other groups. The program is free. The classes are eight-week sessions with one two-hour class per week, but can also be set as a four-week session with two, twohour classes per week. Class sizes can be a minimum of eight, with a maximum of 14 people. For more information, call Katie Lucas, coordinator for Citrus County, at 352-249-4730.

Inverness honors civil-rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. with a walk NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerThe air was chilly but hearts were warm Monday at the annual MLK Jr. Unity Walk in Inverness. Led by the Rev. Doug Alexander, pastor of the New Church Without Walls, about 60 people walked from the Citrus County Sheriffs Office down Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue. The walk ended at Liberty Park, where several people shared their thoughts about the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his dream of the end of racial inequality. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate ... violence multiplies violence, said Danita Eatman, quoting from Dr. Kings 1963 Strength of Love speech. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that .... If we want to bring about change, we need to do the opposite of that which we desire to change. The event concluded with Bruce Bellamys stirring recitation of Dr. Kings I Have a Dream speech and everyone singing I Need You to Survive.

Putnam County Sheriffs Sgt. Hancel Woods said Diana Lucille Conner was shot after she came out of her house and fired a rifle. Woods told The Florida Times-Union that Conner called the sheriffs office early Monday, but she didnt believe the deputies who responded were law enforcement, even after they turned on their patrol cars emergency lights. Deputies left, then returned about two hours later when neighbors complained that Conner called them about a prowler. Woods said deputies ordered Conner to drop her weapon, but she opened fire instead. The deputies fired back, striking her four times. From wire reports

Country fans have a wait ahead of them, though. PBS said Monday that Burns country music project isnt set to air until 2018.

A documentary about the life of Roger Ebert will be shown at his namesake film festival in central Illinois. Organizers with Roger Eberts Film Festival, or Ebertfest, made the announcement Sunday, the same day Life Itself debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. Ebertfest runs April 23 to 27 in Eberts hometown of Champaign /Urbana. The Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic for the Chicago Sun-Times died last April after a long battle with cancer. Documentary director Steve James is scheduled to attend Ebertfest and participate in a question-and-answer session after the film is screened.

Despite some fans eager to see it earlier, Downton Abbey will continue to begin its new seasons on PBS in January, the systems chief executive said on Monday. The return of Downton Abbey, which began its fourth season on Jan. 5, is becoming a post-holiday tradition for the shows fans, said Paula Kerger, PBS president. The British series began presenting new episodes in late September back home, but PBS holds it back. The drama had more than 10 million viewers for its fourth-season debut, and the episode was streamed online 1 million times during the following week, she said. Debuting PBS most buzzworthy show at the same time it starts in Britain will put it in direct competition with the new season offerings from the broadcast networks, Kerger said. It is also easier to get cast members to the U.S. to promote the new season if they dont have to worry about those duties in Britain at the same time.

Memory care Short term and long term stays 000H1SY Associated PressHARTFORD, Conn. Worried about the groom getting cold feet? Theres an insurance policy for that. With the cost of the average American wedding reaching about $26,000, insurers have been selling a growing number of policies to protect against losses from extreme weather, illness and, in one firms case, even a sudden change of heart. Cheryl Winter spent $500 for Hartford-based Travelers Cos. Inc. to cover her daughters $50,000 destination wedding last October in New Orleans, where her biggest concern was a potential hurricane. The weather cooperated, but the limousine never showed up. Her daughter took a taxi cab to the church, and they used the insurance policy to claim the deposit money they couldnt get back from the limo driver. No one wants to be walking in the French Quarter in a long gown and high heels, said Winter, who lives in the Houston area. The insurance is offered by a small number of U.S. companies. Insurers declined to provide data on the number of customers beyond saying they are growing steadily. It can cover losses from issues ranging from bankrupt wedding halls to cancelations forced by unexpected military deployments. Travelers said issues with vendors account for about a quarter of the claims, with most of those related to issues with photographers or videographers. For Travelers, an insurance giant with annual revenue of $26 billion, the policies will not make or break the bottom line. But the wedding insurance it began selling in 2007 is also a way to connect with a couple who might later think of the company for home insurance and other life milestones. It could be the beginning of a relationship with a young couple, said Ed Charlebois, a Travelers vice president for personal insurance. Associated PressMcALLEN, Texas Account information stolen during the Target security breach is now being divided up and sold off regionally, a South Texas police chief said Monday following the arrest of two Mexican citizens who authorities said arrived at the border with 96 fraudulent credit cards. McAllen Police Chief Victor Rodriguez said Mary Carmen Garcia, 27, and Daniel Guardiola Dominguez, 28, both of Monterrey, Mexico, used cards containing the account information of South Texas residents. Rodriguez said they were used to buy tens of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise at national retailers in the area including Best Buy, Walmart and Toys R Us. Theyre obviously selling the data sets by region, Rodriguez said. Garcia and Guardiola were both being held Monday on state fraud charges. It was not immediately known whether they had retained lawyers. Rodriguez said he did not know whether they were the first arrests related to the Target breach. Target did not immediately return phone and email messages left Monday, which was Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a federal holiday. The Minneapolis-based company said last week that it has stopped more than a dozen operations that sought to scam breach victims by way of email, phone calls and text messages. McAllen police began working with the U.S. Secret Service after a number of area retailers were hit with fraudulent purchases on Jan. 12. The Secret Service confirmed that the fraudulent accounts traced back to the original Target data breach from late last year, Rodriguez said. Investigators fanned out to McAllen-area merchants and reviewed miles of video looking for the fraudsters, he said. From that, they were able to identify two people and a car with Mexican license plates. With the help of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, investigators confirmed the identities of their suspects from immigration records of when they had entered Texas in the same vehicle. Police prepared arrest warrants last week and waited for them to return. On Sunday morning, federal officials alerted police that their two suspects were at the Anzalduas International Bridge trying to re-enter the U.S. They were carrying 96 fraudulent cards, Rodriguez said. Two arrested at Texas border in credit card fraud case Associated PressDozens of fraudulent credit cards were confiscated by the McAllen, Texas, police after arresting a man and a woman Sunday on fraud charges tied to the December Target credit card breach. Insurance covers grooms cold feet
OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, JANUARY 21, 2014 Flood risk measuring unfairThe second paragraph in your article featured in theChronicleon Jan. 3 states Residents whose properties were identified as at-risk in an updated map that projects flood risk for setting insurance rates were sent letters telling them how to review the map and file an appeal. Neither I nor Mrs. Moran received such a letter. If you will check that fact again, I believe you will determine a letter was not sent. The only letter sent was the August 2011 notice advising of a viewing of the preliminary flood maps at the Citrus County Auditorium on Sept. 11, 2011. My husband and I had no idea we would be affected, but thought reviewing this situation would be a good idea. As Mrs. Moran mentioned, three neighbors she contacted indicated they did not receive the notice mentioned in the previous paragraph. Another neighbor I talked with said he did not receive a letter either. He has since sold his property. Many, many people will not think they are affected because of their elevation. I realize Carl Jones states elevation should not be a factor. Elevation leads me to another concern. It doesnt seem all Florida counties are measured by the same means to determine a flood risk, even though all counties will flow up to a federal department, FEMA. It would seem all counties should be measured equally in this financially serious situation. I understand the Vero Beach area is measured by elevation. The Readers Digest version of my concern and frustration is the measuring tool of flood risk is not a fair tool of measurement, and many people will not know they will be affected until their mortgage company contacts them with a flood insurance premium.Cheri and Jerry Boggs Floral City Real-live voters wont cast ballots in Iowa or New Hampshire for another two years, but another primary campaign is already underway that will have a major impact on the presidential election in 2016. Call it the Media Primary. Bridge-gate or Bridge-nado or however you label Gov. Chris Christies traffic troubles in New Jersey is a classic example of how that primary works. When candidates get serious about running for president, the level of press scrutiny escalates enormously, and for good reason. The country deserves to know how those aspirants have behaved in the past the judgment, the temperament and the values theyve displayed in both their public and private lives. Voters can obtain this vital information only through intensive and extensive media efforts. And any candidate who cannot handle that level of accountability is clearly not fit to be president. Former Gov. Tom Kean of New Jersey raised this precise point when he told the Newark Star-Ledgerthat Christie will be under a microscope as he prepares to run for president. (The Washington Post still ranks Christie as the most likely Republican nominee.) Whatever flaws he has and he has some will be magnified, predicted Kean. Those flaws have all been on display during Bridge-gate, notes Kean: arrogance, pugnacity and a dangerous determination to choose advisors who will never say no to him. Now, Kean is not unbiased; he and Christie have quarreled over the governors treatment of Keans son, a state legislator. But he accurately framed the challenge facing Christie when he told the Washington Post: On the one hand, I think hes got a lot to offer. I think hes the most able politician since Bill Clinton. On the other hand, you look at those other qualities and ask, do you really want that in your president? We have covered a dozen presidential elections, and even the most savvy and seasoned politicians have no idea how much hotter and brighter the spotlight gets once you approach the Oval Office. Look at the Republican field in 2012: Herman Cain and Michele Bachmanns campaigns were over almost before they began; Rick Perry and Jon Huntsman were gone a week after New Hampshire. Perry, a three-term governor of Texas, exemplifies the rigors of the Media Primary. Once he became a top-line candidate, the Washington Postdispatched a team of reporters to investigate his background. They discovered a vile racial slur painted at the entrance to a hunting camp leased by his family. Would the Posthave assigned that team to probe Perrys past or put the story of the hunting camp on the front page if hed stayed in Austin? Obviously not. Flaws are not just magnified during the Media Primary; they are judged by a different standard. Democrat Gary Harts campaign imploded in 1988 after he denied rumors of infidelity, taunted reporters to follow him, and continued his extramarital escapades anyway. That sort of recklessness might be acceptable for a senator, but not a president. Which brings us back to Christie. Conservative media critics are complaining that liberal outlets like MSNBC are hyping the scandal because they fear Christie is the biggest threat to the Democratic Party, in the words of Fox commentator Bill OReilly. Liberals accuse Fox of downplaying the story for exactly the same reason. Both sides care so much because they know the importance of the Media Primary. OReilly has a point. Democrats do worry that a pragmatic governor of a blue state is a far more threatening rival than, say, a hardline senator from a red state (see Cruz, Ted). And the Democratic noise machine, as Politico calls it, has made a concerted effort to keep the story going. It fits into his pattern of bullying, attacking, pushing people around, Eddie Vale, a Democratic strategist, told Politico. But Bridge-gate would be a legitimate story even without the noise machine. Its a made-for-TV natural: an outsized character facing a juicy scandal everyone can understand. Few voters care about trade rules or tax codes, but they sure as heck know from traffic jams. For years, Christie benefited greatly from being next to New York, the center of the media universe. Now that nearness has become a nemesis. Every news executive knows where the George Washington Bridge is. The most important question, however, is the one posed by Kean: does America really want a man with Christies virtues and vices in the Oval Office? Without the Media Primary, voters wont know enough to give an informed answer.Steve and Cokie Roberts can be contacted by email at email@example.com.

Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ....................................publisherMike Arnold ..............................................editorCharlie Brennan ........................managing editorCurt Ebitz ..................................citizen memberMac Harris ................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ........................citizen memberBrad Bautista ....................................copy chiefLogan Mosby ..............................features editor GOOD NEWS Duke to delay retirement of older C.R. units In a schedule change that benefits the local economy, Duke Energy has asked the state public service commission for permission to delay retirement of the oldest units at the Crystal River plant from about 2015 to about 2018. This is a decision that will keep more than a hundred good jobs at the plant for three years longer than had been anticipated and will keep the plants on the tax roll longer. Duke had planned to retire the units in 2015 due to the cost of pollution control equipment that would be required for the plants to meet more stringent environmental requirements. However, after evaluation, the company has come up with a plan to meet these requirements primarily with changes in the composition of the fuel burned in the units. Units 1 and 2 at the plant were built in 1966 and 1969 respectively. They burn coal that has been finely pulverized and fed into a boiler where it burns and the heat turns water into steam. This steam drives the turbine generator that produces electricity. The primary emission control equipment at Units 1 and 2 is a precipitator, a device that captures the burned ash particles from the coal, but does not capture gases produced from coal combustion such as sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides. For many years, plants at the site have met emission limits of these pollutants by burning low-sulfur coal and by installing burners that produce less nitrogen oxide during the combustion process. With emission limits on these pollutants becoming stricter, Duke recently added large chemical plants called scrubbers to the two newest coal units at the site. These take out most of the pollutants from the emissions. However, scrubbers are expensive to build and to operate. Their cost is prohibitive for plants nearing the end of their useful life, so the older units had been slated for retirement in the next year or so. But the downside of retiring these units would mean losing almost 10 percent of the companys generating capacity. Without a new plant coming on line to replace the units, Duke would have become much more dependent on buying power from other companies to replace this generation. As an alternative, the company has proposed meeting environmental standards by purchasing coal that has even lower amounts of sulfur and less mercury and chlorides than the coal now burned. This would allow delaying retirement of the units until a new natural gas-fired generating plant comes on line in 2018. This seems like a reasonable decision that will allow the company to meet environmental requirements while keeping the plants operating and providing jobs in the county for another three years.

In reference to the Muscovy duck problem at Meadows Mobile Home Park that was in the letters to the editor of the Chronicle (Jan.13). The problem is there are too many ducks and if the feeding stops, the ducks will start to starve and be wandering in everyones yard more than they do now. They cant be fed for years and then stop, because they depend on human food and the population has grown because of the extra food.The female ducks need to be caught and a few males can be kept if they wish to. Not so goldenI was enjoying the Golden Globe Awards on television last night until two women presenters I wont call them ladies made the most rude, crass remark and it ruined the show for me and many others, Im sure.Coma and brain deadIm sorry to read that some people do not know the difference between being brain dead and being in a coma. There is a huge difference. People in a coma are not dead. People that are brain dead are actually dead.Mr. CleanI would just like to say to people that are complaining about the trash all over the roadways and out here in Citrus County, I would just like to say if we brought back Josh Wooten and he came back to the county commission, he would clean this place up like he used to. He done one heck of a good job and it was always clean back then when Josh Wooten had the reins in this county.Support for shelterI would like to say I support Commissioner JJ Kenney in his desire to build a new animal shelter. It is my understanding this will be built through donations and grants and not with taxpayers money. His unending support for the veterans, the elderly and now his compassion for the animals, is admi rable. We support you wholeheartedly.

Officials with the Marineland Right Whale Project and the Marine Resources Council say there are fewer sightings and fewer calves in the waters off Volusia and Flagler counties. Volunteers and staff from these agencies watch for female whales traveling to the area to give birth each winter. So far the water temperatures have been warmer than that the whales prefer, Julie Albert, coordinator of the right whale hot line for resources council, told the Daytona Beach NewsJournal. The newspaper reported that Marineland staff first spotted right whales off the coast this season and biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission confirmed there were three whales off shore. All three were documented in previous years by the Marineland aerial survey team. There have been only 34 whales have been photo-identified off the southeastern U.S. coastline, according to Tom Pitchford of the wildlife agency. Only three calves have been spotted by aerial survey crews that help track the whales as they move south. Thats a little low for this time in the season, said research scientist Amy Knowlton of the New England Aquarium. But Albert said the number could still increase. Its still toward the beginning of the season. Even so, Knowlton said the low number follows a summer with the fewest sightings in the Bay of Fundy off Nova Scotia. She said a few whales were seen farther south than usual, in the midAtlantic, including some that were entangled in fishing gear in July and August. levels are welcome. The course will be well marked, and it will be daylight at the start, but participants planning to stay out for the entire 12 hours must have a headlamp or flashlight after 6 p.m.. Bib numbers will be recorded at the completion of each loop. A large fully-stocked aid station will be set up in the picnic shelter with a wide variety of foods and drinks. There will also be a self-serve water stop about midway on the loop. Anyone completing at least three loops will receive a finishers award. Runners can take a break at any time, leave the course, return and run some more. There are no entry fees; however, there will be a container out for voluntary contributions. Any money collected above actual event expenses will be donated to Whispering Pines Park. The event is limited to 100 participants. Additional details, registration form, contact information, directions and a trail map are available at www.ultrasontrails.com/wpines.html. Early registration is encouraged and event volunteers are still needed. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com. So I got angry about the high entry fees and the cutoff times. She also got inspired and determined to show she could put on a top quality ultra without charging an entry fee. Shed put out a donation can and participants could contribute whatever they wanted. I was not going to shut anyone out because of money, because of being a beginner and slow or old and slow, she said. I wanted to offer a series of events that everybody could come to and nobody would be excluded. The result was a series of race ultra trail events, four or five a year, spanning the next seven years in South Carolina and Florida. Her effort has involved laying out trails, permitting, working with sponsors, promoting the events and recruiting volunteers. Its a lot of work, she said, but her enthusiasm continues. After coming to Central Florida for events, she started researching places to live. Hayes wanted a bicycle-friendly community with trails and a good health club. I found Inverness, she said, and moved to the city about 15 months ago. Last October, she put on a 50K in the Withlacoochee State Forest, attracting internationally known ultramarathoner Tim Olson. I run here a lot because it is so close and convenient, she said about Whispering Pines. I kept thinking it would be so neat to have a 12-hour event that would also be great for old slow people because there is no time pressure. Theres no DNF (did not finish); youve got 12 hours to cover as many loops as you want. The event will use a 4.5 mile loop on the parks existing trails with the timing-aid station at the main picnic shelter. What a runner needs to complete an ultra is plenty of food and drink and a well-marked trail, she explained, things her events have become famous for, including her traditional banana chocolate chip bread. Since it is a 12-hour event, in what could be cold weather, there will also be hot soup and hot water for beverages in addition to more standard runner-tested race fare. The secret is having a wide variety of stuff, she said. That way every runner will find something that appeals to them. The Feb. 1 event has already attracted some out-of-state entries and she anticipates a large local turnout. But what Hayes said she needs now are volunteers to make it a success. I can do all the advance work, she said. But the day of the event, Ive got to have volunteers. Having enough volunteers would give her the opportunity to get out on the trail with the runners and see how things are going first-hand. As for the runners, she thinks completing at least three loops is reasonable and that will earn them a finishers award. But she jokingly cautions prospective participants: My goal is to get you hooked on ultras.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty @chronicleonline.com.LOCAL/STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, JANUARY21, 2014 A9 000H6HA Appointment Call 228-4975 6254 W.

The committee next week will cull through resumes of retired executives who take on such interim roles. Committee members said interviews will take place on a Saturday to be determined in February. Beaty offered his resignation to end a stalemate over the lawsuits. The settlement agreement requires the foundation to hire an interim CEO until Hospital Corporation of America assumes control of Citrus Memorial as part of a 50-year lease. Peter Marmerstein, president of HCA West Central Florida, told committee members that closing could take place in four to six months. Grant said the salary of an interim administrator could cost $30,000 to $40,000 a month, plus expenses. Those expenses would be borne by the foundation, not the hospital board. Marmerstein also said that his company regularly hires temporary CEOs to fill in and that pay rates vary. He said he recently contracted with a temporary CEO position at $1,000 per workday plus all expenses. Those expenses include paying hotel or rental-unit stays for the length of the contract, meals and transportation. The expenses can be substantial, he said. Interim management is not an inexpensive proposition. Marmerstein said he would send the names of potential applicants to Grant. The CCHBs transaction consultants also have names of applicants, CCHB chairwoman Debbie Ressler said. Foundation chairwoman Sandy Chadwick said the foundation didnt begin the budget year anticipating the cost of a new CEO. We do have to be careful about the money, she said.

Chilled Associated PressLarry Svir uses a snow blower on Monday to clear his driveway near Brainerd, Minn. Frigid air settling in Dakotas, moving eastwardMILWAUKEE Another band of arctic air is descending into the northern U.S., bringing a wave of frigid temperatures expected to linger for most of the week. Temperatures plunged below zero in North Dakota and northern Minnesota on Monday morning. The cold front is expected to expand south into Iowa and as far east as Maine by Tuesday night, and will remain entrenched through Thursday. National Weather Service meteorologist Paul Collar said the bitterly cold blast will lead to a swath of subzero temperatures, with highs in the single digits and wind chills of minus 20 or colder. He said portions of Minnesota, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine are under wind chill warnings. He said the cold will be challenging but not as bad as the recent polar vortex. Gunman at large after killing 5-year-oldCLEVELAND Police on Monday sought information on a gunman who killed a 5-year-old girl and shot her mother in the head while the two of them sat in a vehicle in a residential neighborhood. Authorities identified the slain girl as Jermani Brooks. Her mother, 33-year-old Noni Brooks, was hospitalized in fair condition. The two were shot Sunday night on Clevelands west side. Police said a man in a green SUV pulled up to their vehicle, got out and opened fire before fleeing. Police tracking the vehicle and the man surrounded an address in the city briefly on Monday with SWAT team negotiators, but the man wasnt there.George W. Bush library archives open to publicDALLAS The George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum on Monday began accepting Freedom of Information Act requests for records from Bushs presidency. The day marks five years from the end of Bushs presidency, on Jan. 20, 2009. Access to the records is governed by the Presidential Records Act, which says the records may be requested by the public five years after the presidential administration ends. Were really looking forward to this new chapter of the library, said Brooke Clement, supervisory archivist for the library. Weve been systemically processing and this is going to be a whole new way or processing for us ... essentially processing toward what the public is requesting. The requests must come in written format email, mail or fax and must state that the request is being made under the Freedom of Information Act. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A10TUESDAY, JANUARY 21, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Terrorist Associated PressIn an image taken from a computer screen, Christodoulos Xiros makes a statement on the Internet posted Monday and purportedly written by him on Jan. 14 which rails against the Greek financial crisis. Escaped Greek terrorist vows to fight govtATHENS, Greece A Greek fugitive who vanished on furlough from prison while serving six life sentences for being in a deadly terrorist organization has vowed a return to armed action. Christodoulos Xiros railed against the handling of Greeces financial crisis and threatened the media, the judiciary and the Greek government in an Internet post on Monday. I once again decided to make the guerrilla rifle thunder against those who stole our lives and sold our dreams to make a profit, Xiros said. The posting included a video of him reading a sevenpage statement, the text itself and a photo of him in front of pictures of 19th-century Greek resistance fighters and Latin American rebel Che Guevara. His lawyer, Frangiskos Ragoussis, confirmed that the posting was genuine. Xiros, 55, was convicted in 2003 along with two of his brothers of belonging to the November 17 organization. The group, which emerged in the mid-1970s, claimed responsibility for a series of deadly bombings and shootings against foreign diplomats and Greek politicians and businessmen over nearly three decades. Xiros vanished Jan. 7 while on a seven-day leave from prison to visit his family.Bombings kill 21 people in IraqBAGHDAD Iraqi authorities said a series of bombings across Baghdad, targeting marketplaces and two court buildings, has killed 21 people. The explosions came as Iraqi forces are pushing an offensive against al-Qaida and allied militants west of the capital. Police said the deadliest of Mondays blasts hit an outdoor market in the south of the capital, killing seven people and wounding 13. A bomb in a nearby commercial street killed two more. Another two people died and seven were wounded in a southeastern district, while a bomb in a northern suburb killed three and wounded six. Two separate car bombs near court buildings killed seven people and wounded 22, said police.Prosecutor wants Knox to serve sentence if guiltyFLORENCE, Italy A prosecutor urged a court on Monday to take steps to make sure that American Amanda Knox and her former Italian boyfriend would serve their sentences, if they are convicted of murdering British student Meredith Kercher. Prosecutor Alessandro Crini preceded his request by noting that Knox has remained in the United States for this trial, while co-defendant Raffaele Sollecito has at times traveled abroad. World BRIEFS From wire reports UN rescinds Irans invitation to talks Associated PressGENEVA A lastminute U.N. invitation for Iran to join this weeks Syria peace talks threw the long-awaited Geneva conference into doubt Monday, forcing U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon to rescind his offer under intense U.S. pressure after the opposition threatened to boycott. With the invitation withdrawn, the main Western-backed opposition group said it would attend the talks aimed at ending Syrias ruinous three-year civil war. The opposition said the conference should seek to establish a transitional government with full executive powers in which killers and criminals do not participate. The surprise invitation, extended Sunday by the U.N. secretary-general, set off a flurry of diplomatic activity to salvage the talks. The U.S. said the offer should be rescinded, and the opposition threatened to skip the event entirely. The conference is set to begin Wednesday in the Swiss luxury resort city of Montreux, with high-ranking delegations from the United States, Russia and close to 40 other countries attending. Face-to-face negotiations between the Syrian government and its opponents the first of the uprising are to start Friday in Geneva. The uproar over Irans invitation put the entire event at risk of being scuttled. The Syrian National Coalition, which had voted late Saturday to attend after months of rancorous debate, issued an ultimatum, saying that Iran must commit publicly within hours to withdraw its troops and militias from Syria and abide by a 2012 roadmap to establish a transitional government. Otherwise, the group said, the U.N. should withdraw its invitation for Tehran to take part. The confusion surrounding the Iranian invitation underscored the tenuous nature of the diplomatic effort to end the bloody conflict, which has morphed from peaceful protests into a vicious civil war with outside powers backing rebels who are fighting not only the government but rival insurgents as well. It is not clear what exactly motivated Ban to issue the invitation, but it came hours after he said he had received assurances from Tehran that it accepted the premise of the talks. Ban Ki-moonU.N. chief. Associated PressATLANTA As the nation remembered and reflected Monday on the legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., leaders and everyday Americans talked about how far the country has come in the past 50 years and how much more is to be done. At Ebenezer Baptist Church in Kings hometown of Atlanta, civil rights leaders and members of Kings own family spoke about poverty, violence, health care and voting rights, all themes from the civil rights struggle that still resonate to this day. There is much work that we must do, Kings daughter Bernice King said. Are we afraid, or are we truly committed to the work that must be done? The event in Atlanta featured music, songs and choirs and was one of many celebrations, marches, parades and community service projects held Monday across the nation to honor the slain civil rights leader. It was about 50 years ago today that King had just appeared on the cover of Time magazine as its Man of the Year, and the nation was on the cusp of passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964. King would win the Nobel Peace Prize later that year. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said not many states could boast a native son that merited a national holiday. But we Georgians can, he told the audience. President Barack Obama honored Kings legacy of service by helping a soup kitchen prepare its daily meals. Obama took his wife, Michelle, and daughters Malia and Sasha to DC Central Kitchen, which is a few minutes away from the White House. New York Citys new Mayor Bill de Blasio marked the day by talking about economic inequality, saying it was closing doors for hard-working people in this city and all over this country. We have a city sadly divided between those with opportunity, with the means to fully partake of that opportunity, and those whose dreams of a better life are being deferred again and again, he told an audience at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. At the King Memorial in Washington, Arthur Goff, of Frederick, Md., visited with family members. He said the holiday was often a time to catch up on chores and other things, but his 6-year-old son is getting old enough to learn more about King, and he said it was a good time to make their first visit.

Two deaths confirmed in plant explosion Ten seriously injured Associated PressOMAHA, Neb. An explosion Monday morning that brought down part of an animal feed processing plant in Omaha left two people dead and 10 others seriously hurt, authorities said. The search for bodies in the crippled International Nutrition plant progressed slowly Monday, but the death toll wasnt likely to get bigger. Omaha Police Lt. Darci Tierney said Monday evening that all 38 of the workers who were in the building at the time had been accounted for. Through much of the day, authorities declined to say how many died while they sorted out what happened. Officials said two died, 10 were hospitalized and seven were hurt but refused treatment. The other 19 workers escaped. Search-and-rescue experts worked into Monday evening to stabilize the building. It wasnt immediately clear whether their work would continue into Tuesday. We havent cleared the building yet because of the significant risk to our people, Interim Omaha Fire Chief Bernie Kanger said. Authorities dont know what caused the blast, but Kanger noted that there were no hazardous chemicals at the plant. International Nutrition makes products that are added to livestock and poultry feed to make them more nutritious. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration will determine the cause. The explosion knocked out the lights in the building and sent workers scrambling for safety.

The 19-year-old Bouchard, the first Canadian to reach the Australian Open semifinals, played with composure against former No. 1-ranked Ivanovic, who started the season with a title at Auckland, New Zealand, and produced a major upset to eliminate topranked Serena Williams in the fourth round. Two-time finalist Li stayed in contention for another Australian Open title match after beating Flavia Pennetta 6-2, 6-2 to advance to the semifinals at Melbourne Park. After beating two 16-year-olds in the opening rounds and saving a match point against Lucie Safarova in the third, No. 4-seeded Li was relentless in defeating the 28th-seeded Pennetta, who buried her face in her towel during a changeover while trailing 5-0 in the opening set. After saving the match point, I think I got a lot of confidence, Li said in her on-court, post-match interview. Even more belief in myself. Li lost her serve just once while leading 5-0 in the opening set and finished off the 67-minute match with an easy forehand to the open court that CR boys blank Central Jeter goes through on-field workout Associated PressTAMPA New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has resumed on-field work for the first time since his 2013 season was cut short. The Yankees captain hit off a tee in a batting cage and fielded 108 grounders on the grass in front of the infield dirt Monday at the Yankees minor league complex. Jeter, who turns 40 in June, was limited to 17 games last year after breaking an ankle during the 2012 playoffs. I dont think about it, and thats a good thing, Jeter said. Jeter broke his left ankle Oct. 13, 2012, during the AL championship series opener against Detroit. He was limited to five games and 11 at-bats during spring training last year, stayed behind in Florida when the team broke camp for rehabilitation and broke the ankle again in April during rehabilitation. Its good to have a normal offseason and get some work in, Jeter said. Everything is normal now. Jeter missed the first 91 games of the 2013 season, then felt pain his right quadriceps when he returned July 11. He went back on the DL, returned July 28 for three games, then strained his right calf. Back in the lineup on Aug. 26, he played through Sept. 7, when he left for a pinch runner after singling against Boston. While scans of the left ankle were negative, the Yankees said four days later his season was over. Jeter wound up hitting .190 (12 for 63) with one homer and seven RBIs, playing 13 games at shortstop and four at designated hitter. Yankees pitchers, catcher and injured players start workouts Feb. 15, with the rest of the team beginning five days later.

Unlike last weeks 3A-7 girls tourney at Nature Coast Technical, where only one higher seed fell in eight matches the boys event curtain raiser at Hornets Nest opened with a stunner. Hadnt Crystal River entered the match losers of eight in a row? Hadnt the Citrus County crew not solved Central in nearly 10 years or since Jan. 4, 2005, 3-2? More importantly, since that last setback to the Pirates, the Bears stood 7-0-2 over the past nine meetings. CHS had solved CRHS twice this winter: 2-0 and 3-1. Though the Bears (6-16) outshot the Pirates (4-15), 17-7, and held a definitive advantage in possession, sophomore A.J. Bass flickedin header on a gorgeous cross by Raymond Dingler with nine minutes remaining sealed the improbable upset, 1-0. The upset was CRHS second playoff win over the Bears. On Feb. 8, 2001, the Pirates had eliminated CHS at Pirate Field in the 2A-II quarterfinal, 5-1. Not that the Bears went away easy. With 4 1/2 minutes remaining, the Bears fans were elated on an apparent goal. But center official Michael Dinwiddie of the Pasco/Hernando Soccer Officials Association correctly nullified the equalizer due to an offside infraction on the play. The Pirates third shutout of the season permits CRHS to advance to todays 6 p.m. quarterfinal against well-rested and top-seeded Springstead.

Nobody scored as many points or gained as many yards as the Broncos. Nobody allowed as few points or gave up as few yards as the Seahawks. And nobody won as many games as those clubs, either. What a way to finish the season. When the AFC champion Broncos (15-3) play the NFC champion Seahawks (15-3) on Feb. 2 at what could be a chilly MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., it will be the first Super Bowl since 1991 pitting the leagues highest-scoring team in the regular season against the team that was scored on the least, according to STATS. Its also only the second time in the last 20 Super Bowls that the No. 1 seed in each conference reached the NFL championship game. It will be a great matchup, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. I think its an extraordinary opportunity to go against a guy that set all the records in the history of the game. That, of course, would be Manning, the 37-year-old quarterback who is the only four-time NFL MVP and no one would be surprised if No. 5 arrives the night before the Super Bowl. He established marks by throwing for 55 touchdowns and 5,477 yards, helping Denver lead the league with 37.9 points and 457.3 yards per game. Manning is an inescapable pitchman, too, seen Sunday after Sunday during TV commercials. Hey, there he was selling cars during breaks in the broadcast of the NFC title game. Expect even more face time now. Mannings oft-told tale, certain to be repeated a million times in the coming days, includes his comeback from a series of surgical procedures to his neck, attempts to cure problems that led him to sit out the entire 2011 season. That also led the Indianapolis Colts to send him packing despite two Super Bowl appearances with that club, including a title in 2007. Its certainly well-documented what my journey the past 2 1/2 years has been, said Manning, who could become the first starting QB to lead two franchises to titles, but this teams overcome a lot of obstacles this year. None more serious, perhaps, than coach John Foxs absence for about a month because of a heart operation. Other issues included the fax faux pas that precipitated the departure of pass rusher Elvis Dumervil, star linebacker Von Millers drug-testing suspension and season-ending knee injury, and the losses of a handful of other starters on defense. Being in my 16th season, going to my third Super Bowl I know how hard it is to get there, Manning said. He threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns in a 26-16 victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game Sunday. Mannings offense scored on six consecutive possessions, accounted for more than 500 yards, had zero turnovers and zero sacks. Ol No. 18s opposite number in two weeks, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson, provides a Denver quarterback Peyton Manning will lead the NFLs top-ranked offense against Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman and the leagues best defense in Super Bowl XLVIII.Associated Press Super Bowl XLVIIISunday, Feb. 2 At East Rutherford, N.J.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Pennetta could only watch flat-footed from a distance. Li, who lost to Victoria Azarenka in the 2013 final and to Kim Clijsters in 2011, will next play Bouchard. Two-time defending champion Victoria Azarenka is on the other side of the draw. Azarenka, who is attempting to win her third consecutive title here, plays her quarterfinal match against Agnieszka Radwanska on Wednesday. Simona Halep will play Dominika Cibulkova, who beat Maria Sharapova in the fourth round, in another quarterfinal on the same day. Later today, No. 3 David Ferrer played No. 7 Tomas Berdych in the first mens quarterfinal. In a night match on Rod Laver Arena, Novak Djokovic continued his quest for a fourth consecutive Australian Open title with a quarterfinal match against No. 8 Stanislas Wawrinka. The other half of the mens draw plays its quarterfinals on Wednesday when top-ranked Rafael Nadal takes on Grigor Dimitrov and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray plays 17-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer. real contrast as he seeks his and the Seahawks first Super Bowl trophy. Wilson is 6 inches shorter, 12 years younger, a skilled scrambler in only his second pro season after slipping to the third round of the draft; hes a guy who had to transfer colleges to get playing time and thought about pursuing a baseball career instead. Any time you get to the Super Bowl, Wilson said after Seattle beat the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 on Sunday, its a special time. Other members of the Seahawks getting the chance to introduce themselves to a wide audience include rugged running back Marshawn Lynch fans tossed packs of his favorite candy, Skittles, onto the field after a 40-yard TD run in the third quarter and Carroll, a rah-rah sort who was a title-winning college coach at Southern California. And maybe, just maybe, some of Mannings less-heralded defensive teammates the ones who clamped down on New Englands running game Sunday and limited Brady much of the afternoon will get their chance to shine, too. Seattles defense, led by Sherman, allowed an average of 14.4 points and 273.6 yards, and topped the NFL in takeaways. On Sunday, the Seahawks forced three turnovers in the fourth quarter alone, including a victory-sealing interception by Malcolm Smith after Sherman stretched his left hand to tip Colin Kaepernicks pass away from receiver Michael Crabtree in the end zone. Im the best corner in the game, said Sherman, an All-Pro. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, thats the result youre going to get. Seattles only other trip to the big game ended with a loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2006. Denver will be playing in its seventh Super Bowl and eyeing a third title, to go with those from 1998 and 1999, when current executive John Elway was the QB. In addition to Elway, Manning can match his younger brother Eli with a second Super Bowl crown. Eli, a spectator on Sunday in Denver, won two trophies with the New York Giants, whose stadium hosts this years Super Bowl, the first to be played outdoors at a cold-weather site.

Sometimes the ball doesnt roll your way. We possessed and had opportunities, but if you dont execute (in scoring), this is what happens. Its tough to beat a team three times, he added. They took one away from us tonight. CRHS eighth-year skipper Bobby Verlato was ecstatic. This was huge, he said. We were down four starters and started eight underclassmen those guys deserve all the credit. Our defense definitely came through. We earned the right to play Springstead tomorrow. My hat goes off to the team. Our goal was incredible, noted the benefactor, 17-year-old Pirate goalie Kyle Kidd. Dingler deserves credit. He had one shot hit the post and set up a couple others. We were in this from the beginning it was nice to see that intensity. Pirate midfielder Jacob Penn effectively directed traffic, especially on the defensive side. Defensively, I thought we controlled the game, said the 16-year-old Penn. We defended them inside. A win like this feels real good. I sprained my ankle last week and it still hurts, described the 16-yearold Bass, following his team-leading eighth goal of the season. Dinglers cross was perfect: right at my head. Tonights a big win for all the underclassmen.

SPORTS BRIEFSBelichick: Welker tried to take out TalibFOXBOROUGH, Mass. Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker deliberately tried to take out cornerback Aqib Talib when they collided in the AFC championship game.

Belichick called the play one of the worst hes seen and said Welker made no attempt to get open. On the play, Peyton Mannings pass to Demaryius Thomas fell incomplete.

Joining him on the American roster announced Monday by U.S. captain Jim Courier are Sam Querrey and the doubles team of twins Bob and Mike Bryan. The Davis Cup matches are Jan. 31 through Feb. 2 at a temporary court set up in left field at the San Diego Padres baseball stadium.From wire reports Federer returns to Australian Open quarters Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia When the draw for the Australian Open was made, it wasnt Roger Federer who was being widely touted as the prime contender to claim an 18th major title. All that hype surrounded Serena Williams, but she was knocked out in the fourth round. Federer is still three match wins away from that milestone, but after his 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 demolition of No. 10-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga on Monday night, its clear hes up for the challenge. On a day when No. 3 Maria Sharapova was upset by No. 20 Dominika Cibulkova, following top-ranked Williams out of the tournament and opening up the womens draw for defending champion Victoria Azarenka, the leading male contenders on the heavily stacked top half advanced to the quarterfinals. Progressing along with Federer were topranked Rafael Nadal, who had a 7-6 (3), 7-5, 7-6 (3) win over Kei Nishikori though he was broken twice and got a time violation in the third set and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, who overcame a racket-smashing, frustrating finish to the third set to beat Stephane Robert 6-1, 6-2, 6-7 (6), 6-2. Now for the harder part. Federer is back in the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam for the first time since last years French Open equaling Jimmy Connors Open-era record with his 41st trip to the last eight in a major. He next plays Murray, a three-time Australian Open finalist. A win could set up a semifinal against Nadal, who next plays first-time major quarterfinalist Grigor Dimitrov. A win there for Federer would likely set up a final against three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic the only other man who has won four Australian titles in the Open era. Djokovic is playing his quarterfinal today against No. 8 Stan Wawrinka. Its a tough thing to do. I dont know if its been done before, sixth-seeded Federer said of his tough road to the title. Then again, if you dont embrace that challenge, you might as well not enter the draw. You might as well stay at home and watch other guys battle it out. Thats what I like. I like playing the best ... and you need to take it to them. Federer certainly did that against Tsonga, barely dropping a point on serve in the first set and putting the 2008 Australian Open finalist under pressure right away with an early break. The 32-year-old Swiss star was so relentless that Tsonga, aggravated at not being able to threaten Federer at all, screamed and smacked a ball into the crowd after losing an exchange of close volleys. From Tsongas side, it looked like he was facing the Federer of old before the crisis of confidence, the new racket, and before his record streak of reaching the quarterfinals at 36 consecutive majors came to a halt with a shocking second-round defeat at Wimbledon. No, I was not surprised because, you know, when you play Roger, you expect him at this level, Tsonga said. You know hes able to play like this, so you always expect it. Since winning his last Australian title in 2010, Federer has lost in the semifinals each year at Melbourne Park including last years defeat to Murray, who has an 11-9 edge in head-to-heads. Its good to see he took care of his draw, and here we are again, Federer said. Im looking forward to the match, I must say. We had an interesting year last year with some ups and downs. Its a good start to the season for both of us already. Murray had minor back surgery in September and is keeping his expectations in check in only his second tournament since. I said at the start of the tournament, I cant honestly say my expectations are as high as if Id been playing for the last four months, Murray said. But Im not far away from winning the event. Anyones thats in the quarters is close. Azarenka became a big favorite to win a third consecutive Australian title when Sharapova, returning from a long layoff with a right shoulder injury, lost 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 to Cibulkova in the first match of the day. Cibulkova completed a set of major quarterfinals with her best run in Australia and will next meet No. 11 Simona Halep. Azarenka played the second match on Rod Laver Arena and extended her winning streak at Melbourne Park to 18 with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over No. 13-seeded Sloane Stephens, whom she also beat in a contentious semifinal last year. She will next play No. 5 Agnieszka Radwanska, who finished off day eight with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Garbine Muguruza. Associated PressRoger Federer leaps for a backhand shot to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga during their fourth-round match Monday at the Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia. Federer advanced to the quarterfinals with a 6-3, 7-5, 6-4 victory over the No. 10 seed. Canucks Tortorella suspended 15 daysNEW YORK The NHL has suspended Vancouver coach John Tortorella without pay for 15 days for his conduct after a brawl between the Canucks and the Calgary Flames. Tortorella went to Calgarys locker room at intermission following the first period Saturday night, which began with several fights and four game misconducts per team. Tortorellas suspension runs through Feb. 2. He will miss six games starting with Tuesday night at Edmonton. Tortorella blamed Flames coach Bob Hartley for starting his fourth line, saying he couldnt put star players Daniel and Henrik Sedin at risk just to deflate the situation. Hartley was fined $25,000 by the NHL. From wire reports
HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, JANUARY 21, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:Best Friend Fest planned for Feb. 1/C6 000GZGB C E R V I C A A N L C E RAs cancer goes, cervical cancer affects about 12,000 women in the U.S., which isnt a large number, but even one is too many especially if that one is you or a woman you love. The good news is, cervical cancer is one of the most easily prevented and successfully treated cancers when caught early. Other preventative measures include regular Pap smears, not smoking, using condoms during sex and limiting the number of sexual partners. Further info. For more information, go online to CDC.gov/ cancer or Cancer.govWith January as Cervical Health Awareness Month, her e are six facts you need to know: Causes. Youve heard of HPV? The human papilloma virus (HPV), a common sexually transmitted virus, is the main cause of cervical cancer. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least half of all sexually active people will get HPV at some time in their lives, but only a few women will get cervical cancer. Most cases of HPV go away on their own. Risks. Beginning sexual activity at a young age raises a womans risk, as well as multiple partners. Other risks include smoking, using birth control pills for five years or longer, having given birth to three or more children and having HIV. Tests. The most common test for pre-cancerous cervical cell changes is a Pap smear that tests cells taken from the cervix during a physical gynecological exam. Regular Pap smears every one to three years are recommended for women age 21 to 65. Pap tests are often not necessary for women older than 65 who have a history of normal Pap tests and/or have had their cervix removed as part of a total hysterectomy for a non-cancerous condition. Another test is the HPV test, also a cell smear test, which tests for the HPV virus. Symptoms. Early cervical cancer may not exhibit symptoms, which is why regular screenings are recommended. With advanced cancer, abnormal vaginal bleeding or discharge may be present. Prevention. The HPV vaccine protects against the types of HPV that most often cause cervical cancer. The vaccine can be given to girls as young as 9 and is often recommended for sexually active girls and women. information compiled by Nancy Kennedy
Over the past few weeks we have discussed the importance of aggressive management of pain in cancer patients. Whether this pain is due to the malignancy or is a side effect of the treatment, aggressive pain management is necessary in these patients to improve their quality of life and to also assist in the continuation of their therapy. Today we will begin a discussion of the various agents available for the management of pain beginning with many over the counter preparations and we will also discuss some non-narcotic prescription alternatives. During the initial evaluation of pain, it is very important to ascertain how severe the pain is. This will dictate the strength and type of medication which is initiated to help control the pain. If the pain is mild to moderate in nature, many over-thecounter preparations are available to try in an attempt to control this pain. These medications, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol), aspirin, or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB) are readily available and generally well-tolerated at recommended over the counter doses. Many of these medications fall into a class of drugs known as the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAID. Recently, other medications within the NSAID family which until recently were only available by prescription have become available over the counter. These include such medications as naproxen which was known by the prescription name of Naprosyn and ketoprofen which was known by the prescription name of Orudis. Still many other medications are available by prescription for the management of pain. Many of these medications are also widely utilized for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory diseases. One must, however, always bear in mind that over-the-counter medications are not without risk especially if they are utilized at dosages and quantities higher than those recommended by the manufacturer. Unfortunately, as pain progresses, the dosage of these medications required to control that pain may increase as well and there are certainly limits to the number of pills available on a daily basis to a patient without a risk of potential side effects. Many of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs if utilized in high dosages will lead to stomach problems and possibly stomach ulcers. They can also be toxic in high doses to the kidneys. Acetaminophen, while well tolerated with regard to stomach irritation, can lead to a severe and life-threatening liver damage if it is utilized in doses beyond those recommended by the manufacturer. Therefore, one must realize that simply elevating the dose of these medications to control their pain may not be a safe alternative. Occasionally, the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may be combined with a true steroid preparation such as Prednisone or Dexamethasone. In clinical trials, these medications generally known as corticosteroids have been shown to be useful in treating the pain which is associated with bone metastasis and tumor infiltration of adjacent nerve fibers. When these steroids are initiated in the course of the treatment, the pain relief is usually dramatic and of rapid onset if they are going to be effective. Any of the steroids can certainly be utilized for this treatment, however, Prednisone and Dexamethasone are the most common choices secondary to the fact that they carry with them a lower risk of interfering with the electrolyte balance of the body and, other functions of metabolism which are carried on a day to day basis. These medications carry with them, however, a metabolic side effect if they are utilized for a long period of time and are best utilized for short term management of pain. One advantage of these medications is that they do seem to increase the appetite of most patients taking them and can actually improve in many ways the overall sense of well being seen in many patients. These medications must be used carefully and when one is prepared to discontinue these medications, the dosage must be lowered in a stepwise fashion for safety reasons. To summarize, mild to moderate pain can often be controlled utilizing over the counter medications or prescription drugs which do not possess narcotic qualities. One must certainly watch out for the side effects of these drugs which tend to occur in the kidneys and the stomach. Patients who have a history of poor renal function should certainly consult their physician prior to initiating therapy with any of these medications and patients who have a history of any type of a bleeding disorder or require blood anti-coagulation therapy secondary to prior surgical problems or heart disease, should also consult with their physician prior to initiating any form of therapy with this classification of drugs. One other consideration in the utilization of these drugs is any prior history of stomach ulcers which might require the utilization of a protective agent for the stomach while these medications are utilized. As with all medications, one should consult with their physician and pharmacist to rule out any potential interactions with other medications they may be taking. Frequently, non-narcotic preparations are not capable of controlling more moderate to severe pain in cancer patients. Next week we will discuss the combinations of these medications with narcotics, and also preparations which are pure narcotics and are often utilized in the management of advanced, severe cancer pain.

She went for a routine mammogram and it showed a lump. Biopsy confirmed that it was breast cancer, a very small tumor of 1.5 cm (approximately half an inch) size. She came to see me to find out what are her options? She definitely needs surgery to remove her cancer. She has two options of surgery:A lumpectomy is the removal of the tumor and a small, clear (cancer-free) margin of normal tissue around the tumor. Most of the breast remains. In most cases, radiation therapy to the remaining breast tissue is recommended after surgery.A mastectomy is the surgical removals of the entire breast most patients do not need radiation therapy after it. My patient obviously wanted to preserve as much breast as she can. She was afraid of radiation. Radiation therapy after lumpectomy is usually given for approximately four to five weeks. It is associated with some side effects to heart or lung, skin, etc. There is a very small risk of second cancers, too. The main advantage of radiation therapy is to cut down the risk of recurrence of cancer in the remaining breast. She felt that at her age, she can avoid radiation therapy. At the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, an excellent study was presented. This was a large multi-center trial by a study group called CALGB. Researchers randomized 1,326 patients aged 65 or older with hormone receptor positive, node-negative, breast cancer (up to 3 cm) were evenly divided to receive adjuvant radiation or none. All patients were receiving adjuvant hormone therapy. Radiation therapy reduced local recurrence in five years from 4.1 percent to 1.3 percent but did not improve overall survival at all. In other words, out of 100 such patients, 95 do not benefit at all from the radiation, one would get cancer recurrence in spite of radiation and only three would benefit. Considering all side effects, cost and inconvenience of five weeks of daily treatment, it makes it a common sense approach to avoid radiation in these women. This means almost 70 percent of all women above 65 who are diagnosed with breast cancer fit these criteria and they need not take radiation after lumpectomy. My patients breast cancer was 1.5 cm and was hormone receptor positive and it did not spread to the lymph nodes. Therefore my patient can elect to go for lumpectomy and avoid radiation therapy. She should be on adjuvant hormone liketamoxifen or Anastrozole. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist. He is the volunteer medical adviser of the Citrus Unit of American Cancer Society.

Yes, I know we live in Florida, but we do get a few months of near-winter weather here, with blowing winds, low humidity and cold temperatures. This can cause skin to dry up and become very itchy. frequent showering, bathing and use of soaps containing detergents and chemicals can make the problem even worse. Age is also a contributing factor. As we age, we lose moisture in the skin, and there is a need to replenish it. Just as there are ABCs for other medical problems, the same holds true for skin. If you want healthy-looking skin, here is a simple rule to follow: A. Cleanse. B. Moisturize. C. Protect. D. Correct. It is extremely important to cleanse the face using products that contain lotion to replace the moisture lost from aging and during the cleansing process. It is also very important these products have the least amount of chemicals and detergents that can strip away natural oil from the skin. This is particularly true in the facial area, which is generally exposed to the elements more so than other parts o the body. Hands also fall into this category of excessive exposure. Moisturizing the skin is particularly important in the winter months, when humidity is low. The best time to apply a moisturizer is right after bathing, when the skin is clean and pores are open. The best moisturizers usually contain simple and natural ingredients, such as sesame oil, oatmeal and alpha hydroxy acids. The third component of the process is protecting the skin. You have probably read my articles in the past about skin cancers and use of sun-protection products, and how it is so important living here in Florida to protect ourselves from UVA and UVB light. Even though the winter months are cooler and drier, the sun is still out there and can do some significant damage. Sunscreen should be applied when we are outside for extended periods of time. The best rule of thumb is applying a sunscreen about 30 to 45 minutes before the exposure and then for every hour outside, reapply. The last component is correction. Many of us have grown up in the years when sun protection factor was not an issue, and as a result we have some significant sun damage that already exists. This damage is seen as signs of the aging process, and some degree of correction and reversing can be done. Use of antioxidant products seems to be a simple and safe way to replenish the skin, and there are a multitude of corrective lotions out there that contain alpha hydroxyl acids that will help.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

There has been intense debate about the value of prostate-specific antigent (PSA) in the screening of prostate cancer. It has been shown that radical treatment of clinically detected prostate cancers improves survival. However, there is no universal agreement as to the age at which PSA screening should begin. The European Association of Urology recommends a baseline PSA at 40-45 years of age, while the American Urological Association recommends screening starting at 50 to 55 years of age. Some studies have found that men who have a higher baseline PSA in their 40s had a higher risk of developing prostate cancer 20 to 30 years later. However, the studies until now on this topic have been retrospective and the data has been insufficient to make meaningful recommendations. Christopher Weight and other researchers from the Mayo Clinic recently published the results of a prospective follow up of 268 men between the ages of 40 to 49 over a 16-year period. The patients were evaluated with questionnaires, physical examination and PSA blood tests every 6 months. The researchers found that men with a baseline PSA less than 1.0 ng/ml had a 0.6 percent risk of developing low grade prostate cancer by age 55. Men with PSA higher than or equal to 1.0 ng/ml had a 15.7 percent of developing low grade prostate cancer by 55 years of age. No one with the low PSA level developed high grade prostate cancer by age 55, while 2.6 percent men with PSA higher than 1.0 ng/ml developed high risk prostate cancers in the same time period. Thus, it appears that identifying the baseline PSA level in men in their 40s will greatly improve the chances of identifying those that are at higher risk of developing prostate cancer in the following decade. The authors suggest that if the baseline PSA is below 1.0 ng/ml, then those men could safely forgo additional screening until the age of 55 or 60 with minimal risk of missing a lethal cancer that could be prevented by annual screening. However, if the PSA at baseline is above 1.0 ng/ml and confirmed on repeat testing, then those patients should be screened every two to four years for prostate cancer and biopsy carried out as appropriate. For men with a family history of prostate cancer and African American men, it has already been recommended that prostate screening should begin at 40 years of age as those men run a higher risk of developing prostate cancer. Based on the above study it appears that obtaining a baseline PSA at 40 may help stratify all other men into those with low and higher risk of developing prostate cancers. Though this Mayo Clinic study is small, hopefully the finding of this study will be validated in larger studies and will lead to improved guidelines that will reduce the suffering and death from prostate cancer while minimizing the risk of over diagnosis and over treatment. The PSA is not the perfect test for prostate cancer but at the present time it is the best tool we have and used wisely it can continue to save lives and minimize harm.Udaya Kumar.

Welcome 2014! May we all have a fortunate and blessed year. There are many things that we can do for ourselves to ensure that happens, so lets get moving! Literally, lets start our new year by taking time each day to walk, bicycle, swim, run or dance. Such joyous movement helps our outlook and our joints, our hearts and our minds, and can help to satisfy our social needs as well. Lets also swap junk food for nuts and fresh fruit such as cherries, Granny Smith apples, berries, pears, peaches, plums, kiwis and melons (except watermelon). Eat broccoli (raw or steamed), Brussels sprouts, cabbage, garlic and onions for their cancer fighting nutrients. Keep our diets fresh and colorful. We should eat healthy proteins at every meal in the form of free range eggs and poultry, wild caught cold-water fish, free range beef, wild game, or organic cheese (try adding it to salads). We can eat whole grain rice (brown, red and wild rice), in moderation, but should give up breads, pastas and cereals (except steel cut oatmeal). When we are really craving carbs, we can reach for gluten free nut thin crackers, maybe even add low sugar jam, but lets replace frozen and processed foods with those we cook ourselves. Many of us take too many medications, particularly over-thecounter pills and liquids. An aspirin a day may make sense for those of us older than 50, or if stroke and heart disease run in the family, but lets stop overmedicating for things that diet and exercise can control. Hypertension, adult onset diabetes, joint pain, and nonautoimmune arthritis are examples of common conditions that can be eliminated or controlled by following the above anti-inflammatory nutrition guidelines, losing weight, getting some exercise, and having chiropractic care. For heart disease and Type 1 diabetics, autoimmune conditions, and tumors or cancer, please consult an MD. Lets also spend time each day practicing forgiveness for ourselves and others and giving thanks for all we have. Spending time in silent communion, meditation, or prayer refreshes the mind and can provide more wakefulness and energy than a nap. And lets keep our bodies working optimally with chiropractic care. Chiropractic is not only for pain relief, but helps your body function properly, helping messages from your nervous system (which controls all body functions) transmit clearly through correct alignment. The doctor of Chiropractic examines your spine for muscle tension, joint restriction or loss of proper joint motion, malposition or poor alignment, pain or tenderness, and edema or swelling. If any of these conditions are present, the doctor may prescribe X-rays to determine the position that a joint needs to be returned to, or the direction that bones need to be moved in. We use gentle techniques such as Impulse and Pro-Adjuster or drop table to correct these problems. This allows the nerves to transmit better and restores better joint motion, thereby preventing degeneration and allowing you to move more joyously through life. Let chiropractic care help you make 2014 a Happy new year indeed!Dr. Cheryl McFarlandBryant maintains an active Florida Medical Technologist license. Contact her at 352-7958911 or visit 6166 W.

He was adopted, but changes within the family prevented the family from keeping a pet. He came back to PPR and has been waiting for several months for a home of his own. He is a strong, healthy male feline who likes to play and would do best in a family without small children. He prefers men and is a good TV companion on the couch or a lap. When stressed, he will roll himself up in a blanket until he is comfortable with his surroundings or the noise has abated. He will make a great addition to an adult family; other pets, even dogs, are OK. Kittens and cats are available for adoption at Pet Supermarket on State Road 44 in Inverness during regular store hours.

NEWS NOTES Once a year, the Cornerstone Baptist Church hosts the Life Choice Gala for the Citrus Life Choice Care Center. Area partnerships and supporters gather representing church groups, businesses and youth groups, all affirming the mission statement: Life Choice Pregnancy Center is a Christ-centered ministry committed to upholding the sanctity of human life to women and their families facing unplanned pregnancies, by proclaiming the personal witness of Jesus Christ by giving physical and emotional support and encouraging moral purity. The news shared at the gala included many statistics for 2013, including: clients seen, 87; pregnancy tests performed, 55; ultrasounds performed, 55; babies saved from abortion, 15; and adoptions, four. The vision for 2014 includes Life Choice Centers dedication to sharing the gospel and reaching more young women considering abortion, as well as finding ways to reach students in local schools and creating more community network connections to reach more women in Citrus County. The centers wish list includes purchasing an iPad with WIFI for presentations, a sonogram machine for the Crystal River location, securing funds to move the Crystal River office to a more visible location, purchasing an exam table and getting more volunteers, especially those with nursing skills. Guest speaker for Life Choices 14th annual gala was Jeffrey Howell of the Church on the Rock at Plant City. His journey from being adopted at birth to his current 20-year pastoring at the Church on the Rock was inspiring. He and wife Tina are the parents of six children. He serves as chaplain for the Plant City Police Department and serves on the Board of Directors for the Plant City Pregnancy Care Center. He spoke passionately, challenging us to stand for the silent, which was started by students at a university whose mission is suicide prevention. Howell described the amazing transformations of pregnancy center clients, where life choices are offered lovingly. He closed his remarks by saying, In all things, God works for the good of all concerned and our positive influence in the lives of others will live on.

The event, sponsored by Citrus County Animal Services and the Citrus County Chronicle, is dedicated to promoting adoptions and educating the public on ways to care for furry friends. The mission is to bring as many local entities together as possible to provide citizens with these resources and to introduce them to the various rescues in Citrus County which have many loving pets that need homes. The focus will be on education, awareness and increasing adoptions. Citizens who have recently moved into the county will have the opportunity to meet neighborhood veterinarians, arrange to have their pets portraits painted by a local artist, enjoy a one-onone with a prospective groomer, or just come to share the affection we all have for our pets. To inject a little friendly competition into the festivities, a prize will be awarded for the best-decorated booth. Anyone who brings a donation of pet food for the needy will be entered into a special prize drawing. And, in lieu of a registration fee, all entrants are asked to bring an item for the silent auction to benefit Animal Services special-needs pets.

Celebrating best friends Pet-related entities invited to participant in third annual event WILBURB. SCOTT Special to the ChronicleU.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary members Patricia and George Dooris of Homosassa Flotilla 15-4 were recently honored for their many years of dedicated service to both Flotilla 15-4 and to USCG Station Yankeetown. During their 15 years of service, each has served as a past flotilla commander of Homosassa Flotilla 15-4. They continue to serve Flotilla 15-4 as coxswains onboard Flotilla15-4 patrol vessels. In addition, both Tricia and George continue to give freely of their time as instructors, teaching numerous safe boating courses for the boating public, as well as preparing and providing in-service training programs for Flotilla 15-4 personnel. On the weekends they are not on the water participating in patrol or search and rescue missions, they volunteer their time as communications specialists at the USCG station in Yankeetown, operating the radios at that facility. They have been doing this for the past 13 years. Both admitted they sometimes serve in the capacity of advisers and surrogate grandparents to some of the younger servicemen and servicewomen who are at Station Yankeetown serving their country. Being a part of the Coast Guard family is taken literally by the Doorises, as their son, Mathew, (also a longtime member of Flotilla 15-4), has been serving on active duty with the United States Coast Guard for the past 13 years. With the rank of lieutenant commander, Matt is currently stationed in San Pedro, Calif., serving as the safety and environmental health officer for U.S. Coast Guard District 11 (South). When Tricia and George were asked what being a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary has meant to them, both agreed it has been time consuming, but educational, as well. We are fortunate indeed to have Tricia and George as members of our flotilla and we thank them for their many years of service not only to Flotilla 15-4, but to the U.S. Coast Guard and to their country as well, said Flotilla 15-4 Commander Rusty Hays. We look forward to their continued service for many years to come. Couple honored for service Patricia and George Dooris were honored for their many years of continuing service to Homosassa Flotilla 15-4 of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and to the USCG at Station Yankeetown.WILBUR B.

Beckett donated a historic maritime bell to Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast. A dedication ceremony was held at the Hospice Thrift & Gift Shoppe, 8471 W. Periwinkle Lane, Homosassa. The maritime bell was donated in loving memory of Herbert M. Beckett, June B. Beckett and Joy K. Beckett. In 1952, Herbert Beckett, attorneyat-law, was a yardmaster for the Pennsylvania Railroad in Cleveland, Ohio, when he acquired the bell from a steam engine destined for the scrap yard.

Herbert Beckett was a founding member of the Hospice of Citrus County Board of Directors.

C8TUESDAY, JANUARY21, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Jean Cocteau, a French poet and novelist who died in 1963, said, The greatest masterpiece of literature is only a dictionary out of order. In most deals, the exact order in which you play the tricks does not matter too much. Occasionally, though, you have to follow a specific sequence, or you can be defeated by accurate defense. Which applies in todays deal? South is in three no-trump after East opened one spade. West leads the spade nine and East overtakes with his 10. What should declarer do? Although East has only 11 high-card points, his hand is worth opening. He has length in the majors, an easy two-heart rebid, and if he finds a fit with his partner, his hand has only seven losers (two spades, two hearts, one diamond and two clubs), which is the normal number for a minimum opening bid with a five-card suit. South starts with only six top tricks: two spades and four clubs. He might be able to get three more tricks from diamonds, but if he has to lose two diamond tricks, East will establish and run his spade suit to defeat the contract. Instead, South should impale East on the tines of Mortons Fork. Since East is marked with the missing aces, declarer should play a club to dummys jack, then lead the diamond nine. If East wins with his ace, South takes two spades, four diamonds and four clubs for an overtrick. Or if East ducks his ace, declarer wins with his queen and leads the heart king from his hand to collect two spades, two hearts, one diamond and four clubs.

R VideosMotherRules Dear Annie: I am in a loveless marriage. My husband and I barely speak to each other. I mostly stay in my room because its easier than dealing with my life when Im not by myself. Do people really hold hands and kiss goodnight? This has never happened to me. I have panic attacks, and this is a problem. But I know I am capable of love if given the chance. Unfortunately, there are no more chances for me, because my husband just doesnt care. What can I do? Lonely Lady Dear Lonely: Your marriage sounds terrible. Are there children? Are you financially dependent on your husband? Are you unwilling to consider divorce? Why did you marry this man? Yes, couples hold hands and kiss goodnight and care deeply for each other. Please get some counseling, with or without your husband, and see what you can do to make your life better. Dear Annie: You have printed many letters from older people who are upset because they are estranged from their grandchildren or because they are not allowed to visit as often as they would like. Here are a few questions these folks might consider: 1. Do you treat your adult children like adults? Or do you mar visits with unsolicited advice and criticism disguised as concern? Typical topics that should be off-limits include child discipline and housekeeping. 2. Do you constantly make jokes at your childrens expense or revisit sensitive issues from their youth and then, when they object, claim they have no sense of humor? 3. Do you expect to be treated like royalty while visiting, rather than pitching in like family members should? This is especially frustrating when babies and young children are involved and parents could use an extra hand. Bring a dish to share or help prepare dinner and clean up after. Change the kids dirty diaper. Get your duff off of the sofa. 4. Do you consistently undermine your childrens authority in front of their own children? 5. Do you find yourself complaining to peers about your childrens reluctance to invite you over or to take your advice about parenting? If so, trust me, it means the time before, during and after your visits is stressful to your child and his or her partner. And the grandchildren will eventually pick up on this. You are grandparents. That doesnt make you infallible. Take responsibility for your end of things. Rolled Up the Welcome Mat Dear Rolled: You make some good points, although we remember a time when grandparents received more respect, when a parents advice was cherished and no one would dream of asking Grandma to clean up the house. But on the other extreme, weve heard from children whose parents were physically and emotionally abusive and still expect to have full access to the grandchildren. The healthiest relationships lie somewhere in between. Dear Annie: Vermont Reader was upset that people use the handicapped stalls to change their childs diaper. Some stalls serve double duty, as there is no other accommodation for diaper changing and the handicapped stalls are the only areas large enough. Bathroom visits tend to be short, regardless of the reason. A person needing to wait for another to finish is not handicapped-specific. It happens to everyone. Sometimes we need to show a bit of latitude. Seen ItAnnies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
