Citrus County sheriffs officials believe the deceased suspect was tied to an earlier foiled burglary with an accomplice in Hernando County. That suspected accomplice was reportedly arrested by Hernando deputies Tuesday morning after the pair tried to flee when they were caught in the act. According to officials, Hernando deputies responded to a residential burglary at 16199 Flavian Road in Brooksville. The two suspects, who were reportedly stealing items off a covered porch, were confronted by the homeowners. Both suspects then fled on foot. Authorities deployed K-9 and aviation units. One male suspect, Timothy Stone, 29, was arrested and has charges pending. Citrus officials believe the dead white male in Floral City was the one who got away from Hernando County. Detectives continued to process the scene Tuesday evening and next-of-kin had not yet been notified. Citrus deputies reportedly responded to an unknown emergency on Old Jones Road, which was posted on Facebook because the apparent victim/homeowner did not have a phone. Deputies were told the victim walked into a burglary in progress. A confrontation with the suspect ensued in which the intruder was shot. No further details on this case were released, pending further investigation, according to the sheriffs office.Scott will vote against medical marijuanaTALLAHASSEE Republican Gov. Rick Scott said Tuesday he will vote against a proposed constitutional amendment to allow the medical use of marijuana if it makes the 2014 ballot. I have a great deal of empathy for people battling difficult diseases and I understand arguments in favor of this initiative. But, having seen the terrible effects of alcohol and drug abuse first-hand, I cannot endorse sending Florida down this path and I would personally vote against it, Scott said through a spokeswoman. The issue will put him at odds with Republicanturned-Democrat Charlie Crist, who is seeking the nomination to get his old job back with his new party. County worker fired for gas-card use MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCitrus County officials fired a nine-year county employee two days after Christmas on accusations that she used a government-issued gasoline card for her own vehicle. Constantina Emmanuel, a Parks and Recreation worker who oversaw county facilities such as the Citrus Springs Community Center and Citrus County Auditorium, lost her job after county officials investigated anonymous allegations and found them to be true, County Administrator Brad Thorpe said Tuesday. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office is investigating the allegations for potential criminal charges. Thorpe said the sheriffs office will turn over its findings to the State Attorneys Office, which would decide whether to file charges. Emmanuel is contesting the dismissal and will have a determination hearing. That hearing hasnt yet been scheduled, human resources director Sherry Anderson said. According to Emmanuels termination letter, the county received an anonymous report of potential fraudulent fuel transactions committed by Emmanuel. The county reviewed multiple records and receipts to see if the report had any validity. It determined that Emmanuel used the county Sheriffs office reviewing incident for possible criminal charges Brad Thorpecounty administrator said the investigation began with an anonymous tip. See FIRED/ Page A5 Living healthy NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Jenny Morelli grew up healthy. Her mother, Doris (Smith) Rooks, was the home economics teacher at both Citrus High School and Inverness Middle School. Her father, the late coach Bob Smith, was the elementary school physical education teacher. My dad always had us trying out new exercises, and he was also the lifeguard at the city pool when Inverness had a pool near the fire station. He taught swimming to probably everybody in town, Morelli said. So, we were always very active and ate well. Her mother, as busy as she was teaching cooking all day, still came home and cooked meals for the family from scratch. There was no other way to cook back then, Mrs. Rooks said. Fast-forward to 2014, Morelli, 58, still lives by the examples set by her parents. I never realized how much their careers affected me until I got older, she said. Currently, Morelli is in the process of launching Food Generation, a nonprofit organization that presents a back-to-basics approach to health and wellness. The goal is to reach kids and their parents with information and skills about eating real, non-processed foods and getting regular exercise. The idea started when her last child graduated from high school and she decided to go back to State drops battery case Peters still faces felony chargesMIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Prosecutors on Tuesday dropped a domestic battery charge against an Inverness man accused of illegally taking his daughters on a September trek that ended 11 days later in Montana. While it was the lesser of charges Edward Peters faced, it was his first arrest that began a spiral that included a domestic-violence injunction, charges of violating that injunction and finally, Peters removing his daughters from their courtappointed guardian. This was the wheel that got everything going, Peters attorney Mark Rodriguez said Tuesday. Peters, arrested on the charge July 28, was set to go to trial Tuesday morning. Prosecutors announced they were dropping the charge before the trial started. Assistant state attorney Julia Metts could not be reached for comment. Peters was arrested after his wife, Kari, accused him of kicking in the door of her mothers house, pushing Kari out of the way and grabbing their daughters, ages 11 and 6, before leaving. However, according to his arrest report, Peters said he sent his oldest daughter into the house to fetch her sister. Peters said he became alarmed when he heard the girls screaming. Both girls verified their fathers story to Citrus See PETERS/ Page A5 Edward Petersaccused of illegally taking his daughters.

PATFAHERTY Staff writerMajor changes are coming to Florida Medicaid as it moves to a system of managed care by private health insurance companies. Elizabeth Dudek, secretary of the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, was in Citrus County on Tuesday explaining the soon-to-beimplemented changes. The process involves a shift to Statewide Medicaid Managed Care, which includes long-term care and managed medical assistance. It came out of a legislative decision to change the way the state provides services to Medicaid recipients. Dudek said in Citrus County just over 17,500 people will be served either by long-term care or managed medical. Statewide, there are about 3.3 million people enrolled in Medicaid. About 80 percent of them will transition to managed medical assistance and about 87,000 will go to longterm care. We touch a lot of people, she said, adding that about half of the babies born in the Deadlines loom for Medicaid changes MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleSecretary of the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration Liz Dudek addresses a group Tuesday afternoon in Lecanto.

Special to the ChronicleThere will be a Lyngbya algae cleanup from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25, at Hunter Springs Park in Crystal River. One Rake at a Time volunteers will be hosting the first big public cleanup for the new year. Sponsored by the Kings Bay Rotary Club, local volunteers will be joined by 44 college students and staff from Darton State College in Albany, Ga. The students belong to a service club and will be learning about manatees in the morning and helping clean up the swimming area at Hunter Springs in the afternoon. This is the third year they have participated. There is less Lyngbya now, but it is still important to keep up the effort in the restoration on Kings Bay, according to project coordinator Art Jones. The public is invited to join in the effort. High school students can earn community hours. People are needed on both the land and in the water. Bring water shoes or old sneakers that can get wet, gloves, sunglasses and hats, a bathing suit or a wet suit or old jeans and a change of clothes. Restrooms are available at the park.

Although she had always eaten well, the more she learned about the processed foods that many people eat regularly, she became concerned. I started learning about our food supply and the big food industries, all the chemicals and added sugar, and I knew that I had to do something with this information, because if Im not part of the solution, Im part of the problem, she said. In school she chose children and teens as her primary focus. The one thing that stuck in my mind: We now have a generation of kids that will have a shorter lifespan than their parents because of what theyre eating and their inactivity, she said. Weve got to make a change and reverse that. She signed on with celebrity chef Jamie Olivers Food Revolution as an ambassador, taking the message of getting back to basics to the community. Last year, Morelli got the opportunity to talk to a high school class and wowed them with simple facts just about the amount of sugar they consumed on a daily basis. They were shocked, she said. According to the American Heart Association, the daily allowance of sugar for women is six teaspoons and nine for men and the average teen consumes 32. Its in their cereal, in their Gatorade and Red Bull and soda. Thats just sugar. Who knows what else is in our food? However, Morelli said, the closer we get to real food, such as fresh produce, the less additives well consume. Half the battle is giving people information, she said. The other half is empowering people with the skills to put the information into practice. Right now, that half of Food Generation is still in the idea stages, but with real possibilities on the horizon. One of her goals is to conduct crock pot classes, teaching simple methods of cooking while everyone is busy during the day. Id like to work with (the Department of Children and Families), and Id like to have a supply of crock pots to give away to every family that comes and participates, she said. I want to teach parents how to make a pot of beans and brown rice, corn bread and greens good, nutritious, inexpensive food from scratch. She said her dream, which is in the process of possibly coming true, is to have an educational farm with space for a community garden. She envisions a place where entire families can come and go from planting seeds and cultivating to harvesting, cooking and eating. Plus, theyll be out in the fresh air moving their bodies as they grow their own food. When my mom married Ulmer Rooks, he gave me five acres on his ranch in Floral City, and he inspired me into gardening, she said. Im fortunate. My mom handed down her skills, how to cook from scratch, but in other families theyre not being handed down. Thats where I think we can break the cycle and return to basics. Mrs. Rooks, who is on the board of Food Generation, said, It took 50 years for our culture to get rid of the family garden; now the whole nation is trying to bring it back.

CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER After 12 years of construction work on County Road 486, county government finally can answer yes to the question, Are we there yet? Sixteen county and state officials, county staff and consultants performed a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday morning where C.R. 486 meets State Road 44 to declare the completion of the 12.7-mile roadwidening project that stretches across the county from Hernando in the east to near Crystal River on the west side. Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney thanked those present for a phenomenal job. Karen Watkins and Ed McKinney of FDOT (Florida Department of Transportation): thank you for $5.75 million, Kenney said, referring to state assistance with the final phase of the four-phase project. Commissioner Dennis Damato asked: Does everyone remember what was here 40 years ago? Damato said he lived near one of the corners at the junction of the two roads in 1973. (S.R.) 44 was a two-lane road; this (C.R. 486) was a dirt road, Damato said. At that time, people in Crystal River going to Beverly Hills had to travel southeast to County Road 491 in Lecanto and turn north, Damato said. Now, the journey is easier with a widened four-lane road, and will assist a lot of future growth. The table is set by this road for future growth in this corridor, Damato said. This is a major milestone in the history of transportation of Citrus County. Damato said he was looking forward to a ground-breaking for the County Road 491 medical corridor project. I had your title when this thing started at the other end, Citrus County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Josh Wooten told Kenney. They called me commissioner. Its just great to see how much this has changed. We had criticism about having a grass median, a bike trail and all those things. But when you do projects right, it has a return on investment. Around theCOUNTY Elevator fire causes minimal damageAn elevator fire at Citrus Memorial Health System early Tuesday was out before emergency crews arrived on scene, according to a report by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire Rescue. Engine 21 was first on scene at 4:22a.m. at the Inverness hospital. Crew members said an elevator motor had caught fire, but that it was out prior to their arrival. However, the firefighters said the elevator mechanical room and part of the basement floor still had a fair amount of smoke. Crew members used portable ventilation fans to remove the smoke from the basement and the stairwell at the roof. Hospital building maintenance also told the fire crew a repair technician was en route. All floors were checked for hazards and crews found a slight amount of smoke on the third floor, according to the report. No one was hurt and no hazards were found. The amount of damage is undetermined. Tennis instructor to mark 90th birthdayFriends of Jim Kirkwood are invited to stop by his home at 34 N.

The train was hauling coal to the Crystal River Energy Complex when the accident occurred about 3:45a.m. Friday, Jan.17. Romeo is located on U.S. 41 in Marion County, just north of Dunnellon. No one was injured, but there was substantial damage to 12 rail cars, according to Matt Schwerin, spokesman for Florida Northern Railroad. Schwerin said Tuesday only two of the cars were able to be put back on the track and the rest are still at the site. Workers started cleaning the dumped coal Friday. Right now our investigation is pending, he said. There arent any details available. It is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Schwerin said they have checked the mechanical condition of the equipment and the actions of the engineer. He said it is an in-house investigation, but there is oversight by the Florida Department of Transportation and the Federal Railroad Administration. He described Florida Northern Railroad as a short line railroad that usually does the first 50 miles or the last 50 miles. It leases the track on that stretch from CSX.

STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Scott pledges money for springs Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida Gov. Rick Scott wants to spend $55 million in the coming year to help the states beleaguered freshwater springs. Scott on Tuesday said he would include the money in budget recommendations he will send to state legislators. Last year, legislators set aside $10 million for springsrelated projects. The governors plan calls for splitting money between projects designed to restore water quality and projects that would develop alternative sources of water supply. Floridas springs have been dealing with problems from pollution, as well as reduced water flow. The Scott administration came under fire in 2011 for disbanding an initiative aimed at helping springs. The states top environmental official maintained Tuesday that, in the past three years, the state has spent more on springs than ever before. Gov. Rick Scott Career choices ERYN WORTHINGTON/ChronicleLecanto High School senior Dustin Beville was one of some 1,300 students who attended the second annual Career Fair at Lecanto High School on Tuesday. Junior Achievement and Lecanto High School partnered to provide a career fair with businesses and higher-learning institutions to encourage students to return to Citrus County for employment after they graduate. Beville spoke with Staff Sgt. John Rothery with the U.S. Army. Employers gather to present job options to students ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerLECANTO How do we encourage students to find a career in Citrus County? That was the question behind the second annual Junior Achievement and Lecanto High School sponsored Career Fair on Tuesday. We hear from the students that they go to school here and graduate, said Junior Achievement chairman John Dohmen. They say that they go away to college, but there are no jobs here so they do not come back. Then I hear from the businesses that we have too many students that graduate and never come back to work in Citrus County. So I said, What can we do to expose the students to career opportunities here in Citrus County? This thought produced the Career Fair at LHS, which hosted about 40 local businesses and 15 institutions to help find a solution. The purpose is to explain to the students the different kinds of careers in Citrus County, Dohmen said. Also, it explains to students what they have to do to be eligible for a career in that field. Then they talk with the schools about how they can get that type of education and build those skills. Its bringing together businesses, higher-learning institutions and students to educate them on how to build a viable career for themselves in Citrus County. Approximately 1,300 juniors and seniors from LHS, Citrus High School, Crystal River High School and Citrus Resources for Exceptional Students in Transition (CREST) received information for their potential future, as many were undecided. A lot of the students have no clue to what they want to do with their future, Dohmen said. We want to give them some tools so that they can be successful in that career and come back to Citrus County to make this a better county for all of us. Lecanto High School senior Dustin Beville toured each table in the career fair, but left with a smile and a handshake from the U.S. Army table. I was just inquiring about the Army, he said. Most students had not committed to a certain career by the time they left the fair; however, they left with an armful of information to ponder.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-5635660, ext. 1334, or eworthington @chronicleonline.com.

So why not the Jamaican Olympic bobsled team? The group appeared at the festival on Monday to promote their trip to Sochi for the Olympic Winter Games and seek some much-needed cash. When the team was approved entry this month, Jamaican officials said they didnt have the money to travel to Russia to compete. Coach Wayne Thomas said some funding has flowed in, but the team is still in need. What we really need now is money to buy the equipment, specifically the runners, Thomas said of the skates attached to the bobsled. The runners that we are using are very close to illegal right now. When asked what the deadline was for the cash, he joked, Yesterday. So the team decided to head to Sundance to raise awareness, hoping that some celebrities with deep pockets might want to contribute. Were here to let people know that we are here and still in need of funding, Coach Wayne Thomas said, adding jokingly, And also to see some stars. Only lady stars, said pilot Winston Watt as the team broke into laughter.

The four-time Grammy winner will perform before the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks play at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., on Feb2. Fleming is the first opera star to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl. In recent years, it has been performed mainly by a mix of pop and country stars.

Trainer Dawn Brancheaus family members said Tuesday on the website for The Dawn Brancheau Foundation that theyve been repeatedly asked about how they feel about the documentary Blackfish since its release last year.

The county fired Emmanuel for conduct unbecoming a county employee, failure to perform job duties, falsification of records, improper use of county equipment and violation of state law. The Wright Express fuel card is issued to employees who use county vehicles or equipment. Employees are not allowed to use the card for their own vehicles. Part of her job was to monitor and review card uses, Thorpe said. Thorpe said he didnt know how long the card was improperly used or the amount of fuel Emmanuel improperly charged. He said he also informed Clerk of Courts Angela Vick, whose office conducts audits of county operations. The countys internal investigative report was turned over to the sheriffs office.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright @chronicleonline.com. FIREDContinued from Page A1 County Sheriffs deputies, the report said. Still, he was arrested on a charge of domestic battery. At Peters first appearance in court July 28, Judge Mark Yerman found no probable cause for the arrest and released Peters without bond, according to court records. The arrest, however, proved costly for Peters, 45. According to court records, Kari Peters two days later received an injunction for protection from domestic violence against her husband, based on the battery arrest. Around the same time, the Department of Children and Families placed the girls in the temporary custody of their grandfather, Karis father. In August, Peters was arrested on charges he violated the injunction and the childcustody order. A judge released him wearing a GPS ankle-monitoring device. On Sept. 8, Peters arrived at his father-in-laws house to take the girls to church. When Kari Peters objected, the girls followed his direction to get into his vehicle, and he took off. Peters was arrested in a remote Montana state park. The girls, who were unharmed, were returned to their mother. Felony charges against Peters are pending. He remains jailed without bond.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline. com. PETERSContinued from Page A1 state are on Medicaid. Its going to start here March 1, she said about the long-term care plans. Managed medical assistance plans will start May 1 the concept is that you should be getting the services you got before, that they should be timely, that they should be acceptable, that somebody should reach out to you. If you are not getting that you need to give us a call so that we can help you. The agency is using a notification system of three letters to inform Medicaid enrollees. For Long-term Care, the first letter went out in November, followed by a welcome letter in December. A reminder letter went out this week. There are three plans to choose from in District 3, which includes Citrus County. Feb. 13 is the last day to choose a plan before initial enrollment. It is a similar scenario for Managed Medical Assistance. The first letters went out Jan. 2. The second letter is scheduled for Feb. 17 with a reminder letter March 24. There will be five plan choices. The agency has choice counselors available to assist enrollees with the transition and decision-making in both programs. If Medicaid participants do not select a plan, one will be selected for them, but they will have a 90-day window to change it. The MediPass program is being phased out. Anyone who is being served keeps getting the services they got before and gets those services in the best way they can, said Dudek. They are competing for customers; its amazing what they offer. If a person needs it, they will get it. The District 3 office is in Ocala. Dudek emphasized it is not a call center, but an office with real people. The phone number is 877724-2358.

MEDICAIDContinued from Page A1 Gay couples sue to overturn Fla. marriage ban Associated PressMIAMI BEACH Six gay couples filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to overturn Floridas ban on samesex marriage, the latest in a series of cases across the country that contend such prohibitions are unconstitutional and effectively relegate gay partners to second-class status. The lawsuit was filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court on behalf of the couples by Equality Florida Institute Inc., a civil rights organization that works for fairness for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. The lawsuit claims Floridas gay marriage ban violates the U.S. Constitutions guarantees of equal protection and due process. The couples, many of whom have children and have been together for years, said they see no reason to be forced to move to a state that permits same-sex marriage when they have built lives in Florida. Vanessa Alenier, who is raising a 5-year-old son with partner Melanie Alenier, said they decided to share the same last name to come as close to marriage as possible but the same-sex ban blocks that final step. We want our son to understand that his family is secure and just as respected as any other family, said Vanessa Alenier. Melanie and I have worked so hard to build and protect our family, but nothing can come close to matching the protections that marriage provides. Similar claims have been made in other states, including Oklahoma and Utah, where judges recently struck down gay marriage bans as discriminatory. Elizabeth Schwartz, an attorney working on the Florida case, said there are about 40 lawsuits pending around the country seeking to end bans on samesex marriage. Florida voters enshrined a ban on same-sex marriage in the state constitution in 2008. It states that in Florida marriage is the legal union of only one man and one woman as husband and wife, and no other unions can be recognized. The Florida Family Policy Council, which led the push for passage of the amendment, noted that it was adopted by 62 percent of voters that year. Gay activists cannot win in the marketplace, so they have resorted to trying to find renegade courts who have little respect for the rule of law to create social change that would never happen through the people or their elected representatives, said John Stemberger, the groups president and general counsel. We will spend as much time and money as necessary to oppose those who seek to redefine marriage in Florida. The lawsuits advocates, however, say attitudes toward gay marriage have changed in Florida and elsewhere since 2008, with many opinion polls showing broad support for ending same-sex bans. Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican-turnedDemocrat who is seeking his old job once again, said in a statement he backs the lawsuit. No one would want to be told they cant marry the person they love. Its an issue of fairness and Im proud to support it, said Crist, who hopes to challenge incumbent GOP Gov. Rick Scott in the fall election. Vanessa Alenier, left, her partner Melanie Alenier, and five other gay couples filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking to overturn Floridas ban on same-sex marriage.

Associated PressRICHMOND, Va. Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell, once viewed as a rising star in the GOP, and his wife were indicted Tuesday on federal corruption charges accusing the couple of accepting tens of thousands of dollars in loans, shopping sprees, money for their daughters wedding and even a joyride in a Ferrari from the owner of a company that makes health supplements. The 14-count indictment portrays the former governor as deeply entrenched in credit card debt even before he took office and willing to accept lavish gifts from Star Scientific CEO Jonnie Williams, who hoped the first couples endorsement for his products would yield big profits for his company. McDonnell appeared Tuesday night at a hastily called news conference in Richmond to strongly deny any wrongdoing and denounce what he said was an unjust overreach by federal prosecutors. I did nothing illegal for Mr. Williams in exchange for what I believed was his personal friendship and his generosity, said McDonnell, who was flanked by his wife, daughter and son-in-law as he read from prepared remarks. McDonnell vowed to use every available resource and advocate to fight the charges. While still in office, McDonnell apologized for accepting the gifts and repaid thousands to Williams. Limited to a single term by state law, McDonnell left the executive mansion earlier this month in disgrace, his approval numbers low and his political future in tatters. At one time, McDonnell had been considered a possible running mate for Mitt Romney, and the governors seat has opened the door to higher office since Thomas Jefferson held the post from 1779 to 1781. McDonnell delivered the 2010 Republican response to the State of the Union Address, and became chairman of the Republican Governors Association in 2011. Twelve of the counts are punishable by up to 20 years in prison each, and two are punishable up to 30 years. Fines can range from $250,000 to $1 million. The 43-page indictment portrays a cozy relationship between the McDonnells and Williams that began even before he took office, with many of their interactions initiated by Maureen McDonnell. In 2009, just before the governors inauguration, first lady Maureen McDonnell wrote to a senior staffer for her husband: I need answers and Bob is screaming about the thousands Im charging up in credit card debt. We are broke, have an unconscionable amount in credit card debt already, and this inaugural is killing us! Even before they took up residence in the governors mansion, Williams was offering the family money. He was known as a donor who allowed the McDonnells use of his private jet on the campaign trail. In December, he was willing to pay for an Oscar de la Renta dress that the cash-strapped first lady could wear to the inauguration. Although she was the one who asked for the dress, she later refused the offer at the staffers urging. But the partnership between Williams and the McDonnells was already underway. However, the indictment says Maureen McDonnell cut a deal with Williams about two years later: if he bought her dresses and accessories for her daughters wedding and the couples anniversary, she would make sure he had a prime seat next to her husband at a political event in New York City. Williams paid her nearly $20,000 tab at stores like Oscar de la Renta and Louis Vuitton, the indictment says. As promised, Williams was seated next to the governor at the event on April 13, 2011. The indictment also details a $50,000 loan Williams made to the McDonnells in May 2011, along with $15,000 for their daughters wedding. The money was later used to pay for catering costs for the wedding, as well as payments totaling nearly $20,000 for the familys credit cards. As the gifts piled up, the governors endorsements appear to have become more blunt. In March 2012, the governor pulled a bottle of Anatabloc from his pocket during a meeting with the secretary of administration during a discussion of reducing health care costs. He told her that he personally took the supplement, and that it worked.A8WEDNESDAY, JANUARY22, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLENATION 000H2FP Visit us at www.CrimeStoppersCitrus.com or Call 1-888-ANY-TIPS (1-888-269-8477) Funded by the Office of the Attorney General, Crime Stoppers Trust Fund of Citrus County, Inc.

A Northern California mother pleaded for justice Tuesday, two days after her eldest teenage son was fatally shot and just three weeks after her youngest son suffered a similar fate. Dinyal New made her plea outside her home just blocks from a growing makeshift memorial of flowers and candles in a quiet neighborhood in east Oakland where her oldest son, 19-year-old Lamar Broussard, and a childhood friend were shot and killed on Sunday just three days after burying her youngest son. News youngest son, 13-year-old Lee Weathersby III, was shot about a mile away on New Years Eve. He died the next day. All my boys are gone, said New, 41, as she begged for witnesses who may know anything about the killings to contact police. Im numb. I am stunned. I am mad. I am angry and hurt, New continued. I hope that somebody please comes forward if they saw something to tell the police. No arrests have been made in the shootings, Oakland police spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson said Tuesday. On Monday, investigators were looking into the possibility that the slayings were linked. New said Tuesday that she doesnt believe that the brothers murders are connected. They were good boys, both of them, Lee Weathersby Jr., who is Lee Weathersby IIIs father and Broussards stepfather, told the San Francisco Chronicleon Monday. Were not supposed to be burying our children. Its supposed to be the other way around. Theyre supposed to looking out for us. Lee Weathersby III, described by his mother as an avid basketball player and drummer for his school band, was shot on Dec. 31 as he walked home from a friends house after he attended a party at a nearby Boys & Girls Club. On Sunday, Broussard and his childhood buddy, Derryck Harris, 19, were killed while riding in News Audi, his mother said. She said Broussard was going to pay her cellphone bill.

There was another regulatory setback for the drugmaker and its fishoil based pill Vascepa, its only product on the market. J.P. Morgan lifted its rating on the aluminum maker to overweight from neutral, and raised its price target from $9, to $15. Weak shipments in the Powder River Basin and lower production at its Mountain Laurel complex will trim fourth-quarter results. Dan Loeb revealed a new stake, saying his holding in the chemical maker is the largest investment for his hedge fund, Third Point.

Interestrates Mixed earnings hold back US stocks Associated PressNEW YORK The Standard & Poors 500 index logged a small gain Tuesday on a mixed day for the stock market. Health-care giant Johnson & Johnson slipped after it warned that pressure to keep prices low would likely mean slightly lower profits than forecast. Delta Air Lines gained after reporting a betterthan-expected profit in the fourth quarter as fares and traffic rose. Company earnings were the main focus for investors Tuesday as there were no major economic releases. So far, the stock market has failed to get a big lift from earnings reports and investors appear to be assessing the results more critically than they did a year ago. Earnings are coming in and, candidly, were getting a mixture picture for the fourth quarter so far, said Jim Russell, an investment director at U.S. Bank. The Standard & Poors 500 rose 5.10 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,843.80. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 44.12 points, or 0.3 percent, to 16,414.44. The Nasdaq composite edged up 28.18 points, or 0.7 percent, to 4,225.76. J&J, one of the 30 members of the Dow, slipped $1.03, or 1.1 percent, to $94.03, helping pull the index lower. Another Dow component, Verizon Communications, fell after reporting its own earnings. Among the days winners were Dow Chemical and Alcoa. Dow Chemical rose $2.86, or 6.6 percent, to $45.93 after hedge fund Third Point LLC said Tuesday that it has acquired a significant stake in the company and wants it to spin off its petrochemicals division. Alcoa surged 77 cents, or 6.8 percent, to $12.13 after analysts at JPMorgan raised their price target for the stock, predicting Alcoa will benefit from tightening aluminum markets. After surging almost 30 percent last year, stocks are starting the year in a more subdued fashion. The S&P 500 is down 0.3 percent for the year. Blackberry says it will sell Canadian real estateBlackberry plans to sell most of its Canadian real estate holdings as it works to shore up its business under new management. The troubled smartphone maker said it plans to sell most of its commercial real estate holdings through sale-leaseback and vacant asset sales. But it says it remains committed to Waterloo, Ontario, as its headquarters. BlackBerry pioneered the smartphone in 1999 and dominated for years but since the late 2000s the company has been hammered by competition from the iPhone as well as Android-based rivals. Under new CEO John Chen, BlackBerry has been working to turn around its business. Last month, the company entered into a fiveyear partnership with a Taiwanese company in an agreement that will offload much of BlackBerrys manufacturing costs.Verizon buys Intel unit, preps mobile TV serviceLOS ANGELES Someday, the full lineup of channels from Verizons FiOS TV service may be available on your phone.

Currently, Verizon FiOS video subscribers can stream some live channels over mobile devices, but the selection is limited and most channels cant be viewed outside the home.Airplane-maker to lay off 550 US employees, contractorsWICHITA, Kan. Airplane-maker Bombardier announced Tuesday it plans a workforce reduction of about 1,700 employees and contractors at its facilities in the United States and Canada. That number includes 550 people in the companys Learjet facility in Wichita. The Wichita cuts include 200 contractors who left the company in December after their contracts expired and were not renewed, said company spokeswoman Annie Cossette. Cossette would not reveal how many of the remaining affected workers involved full-time Bombardier employees or company contractors, or when the layoffs are expected to begin. The Montreal-based company said the U.S. workforce reduction will take place at its Wichita Learjet plant and its effects will be felt across all the Learjet programs. The layoffs include both union and non-union workers in assembly, manufacturing, engineering, sales and aftermarket programs. The machinists union said 150 to 160 employees represented by its bargaining unit in Wichita are expected to lose their jobs.Yellen favors gender-neutral title of Fed chairWASHINGTON Janet Yellen will make one small but symbolic change when she takes over the leadership of the Federal Reserve on Feb. 1: Her title. Yellen has decided to use the genderneutral title of chair, rather than chairman or chairwoman, when she becomes the first woman to lead the Fed in its 100-year history. Her preference will be Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen. Her decision is consistent with the title she used in the Feds No. 2 job, when she was referred to as Fed Vice Chair Janet Yellen. Alice Rivlin, the first woman to serve in the No. 2 post at the Fed, also preferred the gender-neutral title of vice chair.Proposed supermarket wine deal draws criticismNASHVILLE, Tenn. A proposed deal to allow supermarket wine sales in Tennessee is drawing criticism for trying to exclude big box retailers and convenience stores. Liquor industry lobbyists this year have for the first time engaged in serious negotiations with leaders of both chambers of the General Assembly about the perennial effort to uncork wine sales in grocery stores. The Tennessee Wine and Spirits Retailers Association wants the measure to set a minimum share of grocery sales to qualify for a wine license. That would exclude many large stores such as Walmart and Target, along with most convenience stores and gas station shops from the measure.

Black media seek part of court-ordered tobacco ads Associated PressRICHMOND, Va. Black media outlets want the nations tobacco companies to run courtordered advertisements in their publications as part of a lawsuit charging that the industry lied about the dangers of smoking. In a brief in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., ahead of a Wednesday hearing in the case, the National Newspaper Publishers Association and National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters argued that the ads should be disseminated through their outlets because the black community has been disproportionally targeted by tobacco companies and harmed by smoking. The groups are asking the court to consider adding its outlets to the list of newspapers, TV stations and websites where the socalled corrective statements are to be published. The statements also are to accompany cigarette packages. The statements are part of a case the government brought in 1999 under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations. U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler ruled in that case in 2006 that the nations largest cigarette makers concealed the dangers of smoking for decades and ordered them to pay for corrective statements. The companies involved in the case include Richmond, Va.-based Altria Group Inc., owner of the biggest U.S. tobacco company, Philip Morris USA; No. 2 cigarette maker, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., owned by Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Reynolds American Inc.; and No. 3 cigarette maker Lorillard Inc., based in Greensboro, N.C. The tobacco companies and the federal government reached an agreement last week on the details of publishing those statements. The court must still approve the agreement, which was signed off on by several public health groups that intervened in the case, including the National African American Tobacco Prevention Network. Under the agreement with the Justice Department, each of the companies must publish full-page ads in the Sunday editions of 35 newspapers and on the newspapers websites, as well as air prime-time TV spots on CBS, ABC or NBC five times per week for a year. The companies also must publish the statements on their websites and affix them to a certain number of cigarette packs three times per year for two years.
Page A10WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014 Laws are for allWhat do stop signs mean? Stop signs are on the bike trail, on North Apopka, and all intersections on the trail, and all throughout downtown Inverness. The flashers on North Apopka by the bike trail, I feel they mean slow down and be watchful of walkers, joggers and bikers. But they do not mean stop, unless someone may be directly in front of you thats a given. The bikers and walkers rarely stop and look. They just assume youre going to stop. While driving, I have seen bikers, while I pull up and stop, pass me and go right on through the downtown intersections. Do the laws only pertain to the automobile driver? Do the bikers and walkers have no rules or laws to follow? Last week when coming home from work as I approached the bike/walking trail, the lights came on and a young gal was 25 feet to 30 feet away. I was going slow; as we approached, she came right out into the street without stopping like she owned the road, and her language was anything but appropriate. She had a mouth that would make a factory worker blush, cussing me out for not stopping. Now, is that stop sign on each side of the road just for looks and are all the bikers, walkers and joggers exempt? So many bikers are not following the rules of the road and someone is going to get hurt, and you know its not going to be the car. Thanks for letting me vent. I also use the bike trail and I stop and get off my bike at stop signs. Inverness is a beautiful town, but could be safer if everyone followed the rules. Thank you.Gerri Harnish Inverness Editors note: Paul Hebert, a snowbird visiting Citrus County, is sharing his letters to family and friends with the Chronicle in the blog section of chronicle online.com. This entry is from his 12th day in Citrus. Beer, bingo and a new buddy named Rusty highlighted yesterdays activities. At the VFW, Rusty instructed me on the fine art of bingo. I cant believe I had never played it before. I always intended and wanted to, but never got around to it. Yesterday, all the numbers aligned, so poof, I got to remove one more item from my bucket list, lifes ultimate to-do list. Next up is learning to play bridge and to speak Spanish fluently, though not necessarily to play bridge in Spanish. The competition seemed friendly enough. Rusty (anyone named Rusty is a good guy) got me all set up, and even insisted I sit in his lucky chair, providing the best angle to see the board. Of course being a first-time FNG, watching the board during the game was not something I could even dare try. My head was buried deep on the cards, with eyes fixed like someone watching the CNBC stock quotes as they stream along the bottom of the screen, while at the same time trying to catch what theyre showing in other parts of the screen. I had my hands (and eyes) full, working at max capacity, barely keeping up as the numbers got rapidly fired off. A clown waving $100 bills could have walked by and I wouldnt have seen him. But the clown wouldnt have stood very long. He would have been placed into a seat, propped with a dauber, and sold all the beer and bingo cards his money could buy. We had our dollars, daubers, and Millers, all ready to play. I had even wiped the spilt beer from my table so it wouldnt soak my bingo card. Everyones ready, and everyones a winner. If anyone ever uses that slogan, please donate my royalty checks to the VFW. Frankly, it sounds like an Ed McMahon sweepstakes pitch, or perhaps a T-ball coachs line as hes handing out trophies to the teams 6-year-olds. Well, wouldnt you know it, I got bingo (bingoed?) on the first card. I meekly called out bingo, surprised that I had four squares clumped together in the lower left-hand corner. A half second later, I heard a lady a table away say bingo, but she said hers in capital letters, with a loud, authoritarian voice, like someone who meant it. They split the pot between us. I didnt ask and still dont know if they split it because they werent sure which of us called bingo first, or if they always split it among everyone who gets bingo in the first group, like in the peloton in the Tour de France where all cyclists coming in as a group even if theyre many seconds apart get the exact same time. But it doesnt matter. I got that monkey off my back right off the bat. No shutout for me on my virgin dab on the field of fast numbers. But I was hooked. Like a golfer after the perfect drive or the shopper who finds an incredible bargain, my brain had released trillions of endorphin hook cells, whose job it was to multiply and create even more hook cells. Not knowing much brain chemistry, be advised that last statement may or may not be scientifically accurate. The second game gut-punched me; someone else called bingo. I kept looking at my card, hoping Id find the magic last number to catapult me back to the peloton winners circle. No such luck. Hey, wait, Im only one number away! You cant stop now. I won the third game. But my Bingo! was dampened somewhat in feeling conflicted over two potentially bad outcomes. First, what if I had marked the numbers wrong? They stop the game at Bingo! to confirm the numbers on your card were actually called. Two wins in three cards? Surely I had screwed something up. I could see the looks of disgust if I had marked phantom non-called numbers. Who brought that guy? Do that again and well pour beer on your bingo card. Go play bridge. Bad outcome possibility No. 2 was that I had marked everything right and actually won. Then everyone would hate me, scorn Rusty for his entire life for bringing me, maybe suspect I was a ringer, a bingo-shark, playing the doofus, but then winning all the time. All I could think about was the movie Rounders, where Matt Damon and Edward Norton hustle some cops in a poker game. In the end they lost their winnings and got beaten to a pulp. Granted, that was a movie, with stakes higher than our bingo game, but still, you never know. No good outcome in this Hobbesian bingo choice, I decided to take my winnings (someones got to do it) and hope theyd promptly start the next game. I had to leave early, not sure if that was a good thing, a bad thing or neither. Is it polite bingo etiquette to leave after youve won, or are you obligated to stay until youve lost it all back? Are the other players thinking: Good riddance, we dont want him around here anymore, or Hey jerk, you have to stay and let us win our money back? Or maybe, Someone get me another beer. A second poof off my bucket list: Blogging. The local paper, the Citrus County Chronicle, has set up a blog for my letters on their online site. We all took a stroll on the Withlacoochee. Buster saw some cows, awfully loud ones, fenced in right up against the trail. He studied them carefully before choosing flight over fight. These jacks are smart dogs.

Were sorry to see Priselac step away from CMH business. He brought a lot to the table, including the calm and logical thinking won through many years in the health care industry. Prior to his appointment as a CCHB trustee, Priselac was a nonvoting advisor to the CMH Foundation board, so he could truly say he saw both sides of things. Priselac spent much of his career in the health care industry. His positions included CEO/president, chief operating officer, vice president of finance and risk manager, according to his bio on the CCHBs website. It continues: He has overseen the construction of a new hospital and collaborated with hospital/physician joint ventures. Notably, he took the lead in the merger of two financially distressed hospitals, resulting in reduced district taxes without compromising service levels. Thats good experience to have on a hospital board. However, Priselac also was the lone dissenting voice on recent major decisions. He ended up being the only CCHB member steadfastly in favor of a sale of the hospital to HCA, an opinion widely shared by community members. Priselac favored the solution that would do away with the CCHB, and along with it the authority to levy taxes. As he said in his resignation letter, I cannot support a tax that is not needed. Serving on CMHs foundation and hospital boards is a volunteer job, one thats particularly thankless when things get seriously contentious. We appreciate the service that members of both boards have contributed. Robert Priselac brought diversity of opinion and educated questions to the hospital governance discussions, and thats a good thing. Its healthy to talk over differences of opinion, respectfully, in pursuit of a common goal. Were sorry to see him go.

Better way to run Chassahowitzka campgroundI am a resident of Chaz and I do not wish to take advantage of the citizens of Citrus County, and I dont think I should have to do menial labor to use a county facility. As for parking my vehicle elsewhere, we are pretty tired after a day on the water, and I find that I am too tired to go and fetch my vehicle more than a mile away. I dont mind paying a fee. I would just like it to be reasonable, comparable to other counties, and include the weekends like other counties after all, this is a county ramp, not a private one, though the county leases the parking lot to the Moores. The other counties surrounding us allow their citizens to purchase a reasonable yearly parking pass equal to 10 to 15 visits, which would be $70 to $105 dollars per year at Chaz. I am not asking this just for Chaz residents but for all citizens of Citrus County. The Moores act like we would be there every day; with the price of gas, we are lucky to be able to go twice a month, and even if it wasnt so expensive we wouldnt be going out all the time. Their spots would not be taken up and having a pass does not guarantee you a space, it just means you have already paid. I understand that the county was having financial problems, but this is the only ramp in the county where they charge for parking. The county spent a lot of money right before they leased the campground and parking lot to the Moores, more than $250,000 for a new bathroom and laundry for the campground. For not having money to run Chaz, this seems like an awful lot to spend just to lease it out to someone for basically nothing; the Moores lease is for only $100 a month, which is a small amount. The parking fee was raised just before they leased it. People have brought up to the county other ways they could have saved money at the campground without leaving it to a private entity, or at least just leased the campground out and not the parking lot since the only ones who use it are the boaters. Some of the ways they could have saved money were: closing the store, and then they wouldnt have needed all those employees at the store; they could have used a central meter to collect fees, with one person to collect from the meter and check the parking lot once in a while. Other counties use this method with success. True, the meters are pricey, but that would have been a one-time price and the one person to collect could have been from the campground and would have been cheaper than paying four peoples salaries and benefits. One year alone would have paid for the central meter.Teresa Weimar ChassahowitzkaPutting Christmas in historical perspectiveI agree with the recent letter by John McFadden, titled Take it on faith, that was written in response to a previous letter from Louis Pulgrano. McFadden said So what? The subject was the greeting Merry Christmas. Several years ago, the suggestion was to change the greeting to Happy holidays because not everyone was Christian. There are many Jewish people, agnostics and atheists, for whom the greeting Merry Christmas was inappropriate. I have also seen signs on home lawns that said, Keep Christ in Christmas. Isnt it wonderful that we live in a country where we can express such different views? History was not my favorite subject in school, but it is often very important to get a historical perspective. First, the Bible has no mention of Christmas as the birthday of Jesus. Second, it was not until the year 534 A.D. that Christmas was recognized as an official holy day by the Roman state. The original meaning of Christmas was a special church service, or Mass, to celebrate the birth of Christ Christ Mass. Third, the middle of winter has long been a time of celebration around the world. Centuries before the arrival of Jesus, early Europeans celebrated light and birth in the darkest days of winter. Many peoples rejoiced during the winter solstice, when they could look forward to longer days and extended hours of sunlight. Many traditions that are around today have their roots in pre-Christian winter festivals. These include the importance of candles and decorations made from evergreen bushes and trees, symbolizing everlasting light and life. In Roman times, a mid-winter festival was held. This was a relaxing time with a lot of parties and merry-making. It was also common to give other people small gifts, such as dolls for children and candles for adults. In Germany, people honored the pagan god Odin during the mid-winter holiday. Germans were terrified of Odin, as they believed he made nocturnal flights through the sky to observe his people, and then decide who would prosper or perish. Because of his presence, many people chose to stay inside. In Scandinavia, a festival called Yule lasting up to 12 days was held in late December and early January. In this time, people burned logs and held parties. All of these customs have influenced how Christmas day is celebrated today in the United States. During the Reformation and up until the middle of the 1800s, Christmas was often not celebrated because partying and merry-making was seen as un-Christian. In 1870, Dec. 25 was declared a federal holiday in the United States. Our personal history influences how we celebrate Christmas. My family likes to be together at this time and we travel to another city and state to be together. We no longer give gifts. Just being together is gift enough. The Rev. Mary Louise DeWolf Crystal RiverWhats the buzz?David Brooks made good points in his column regarding weed in the Sunday Times, but he overlooked a couple points that should be addressed. First of all, once the government accepts marijuana as an aid to health care, it will soon be covered under the government-controlled health care system. And we all know about the endless fraud and waste in government programs, so before long healthy non-users will be paying for the fraudulent dopers marijuana. The doper gets the high and we get the bill. That alone negates the phony comparison to alcohol. The second point has to do with the motivation behind legalizing weed. What if, hypothetically, one of the big pharma companies came up with a pill that had the same medicinal advantage as marijuana, but with none of the desired and undesired side effects as marijuana? In other words, without the buzz. Do you think for one moment the activists would stop pushing for the legalization of marijuana? Not for a minute. The activists are in it for the buzz and/or the money. The families of those who need the medicinal value would surely opt for the pill.Sam Nall HomosassaOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, JANUARY22, 2014 A11 000H6TX 000H4H8 Now You Can Your Home With This Laminate! 6 Colors Lifetime Residential Warranty (includes topical water damage) sq. ft.

Psych screening for women held in kids deathsROCKVILLE, Md. Two Maryland woman who police said killed two children while performing what they thought was an exorcism are remaining held without bond and will have psychiatric evaluations to determine if theyre competent for trial. Zakieya Latrice Avery and Monifa Denise Sanford appeared via videoconference for their first court appearance Tuesday. The women are charged with first-degree murder in the stabbing deaths of two of Averys children, ages 1 and 2. Police said two other children were found injured at Averys Germantown home. Prosecutors said the women have told investigators that they thought they were conducting an exorcism and believed that evil spirits were moving between their bodies.1 dead in Purdue shooting; suspect in custodyWEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. A man opened fire Tuesday inside a basement classroom at Purdue University, killing one person and prompting officials to send a text alert to students telling them to seek shelter, police and the university said. The suspect, who is believed to have targeted the man who was shot, surrendered to a police officer within minutes of the attack at the Electrical Engineering Building, Purdue Police Chief John Cox said. The identities of the suspect and victim were not immediately confirmed. Cox said the suspect entered the Electrical Engineering Building, took the actions that he took and immediately left the facility without any other interaction that were aware of. Cox said the suspect wasnt immediately cooperating with investigators. He said some people witnessed the shooting, but he didnt specify whether the attack happened during a class.Jelly doughnut rock on Mars suddenly appearsPASADENA, Calif. NASA scientists are intrigued by a Martian rock resembling a jelly doughnut that seemed to appear out of nowhere. The Opportunity rover earlier this month took an image of the rock, which was white around the outside and dark red in the middle. It was not present in earlier images of the same spot. Chief scientist Steve Squyres has a likely explanation. He said in a presentation last week that one of Opportunitys wheels probably kicked up the rock, which then slid into its field of view. Early testing of the jelly part of the rock revealed characteristics unlike any other rock the rover has discovered during its decade on Mars. The rock is high in sulfur and magnesium, and scientists are still trying to figure out why.

New video of Toronto mayor emergesTORONTO A new video of Mayor Rob Ford emerged Tuesday that shows him swearing and slurring his words while apparently trying to imitate a Jamaican accent. In the video posted on YouTube, Ford is shown in a fast food restaurant rambling and talking about police surveillance and calling police chief Bill Blair a derogatory name. Ford, who said in November that he quit drinking, said outside his office Tuesday that he drank on Monday night a little bit and acknowledged it was him in the video. When asked if he also did drugs, Ford said no. I was with some friends and what I do in my personal life with my personal friends, thats up to me, Ford said. It really has nothing to do with you guys. Ford said he did not think the language he used was offensive or discriminatory. Its how I speak with some of my friends, he said. The video is titled New Video of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Drunk, Swearing in Jamaican Patois? Bumbaclot. Ford said in November that he was finished with drinking alcohol after having a come to Jesus moment. Ford vowed in November that the public would never see a tape of him intoxicated again. He put his name on the ballot to run for another term earlier this month. Ford acknowledged last year that he smoked crack in one of my drunken stupors after police said they obtained a copy of a tape that appears to show him smoking crack. He refused to resign.Pakistani air force pounds militant hide-outsISLAMABAD The Pakistani air force pounded militant hide-outs near the Afghan border on Tuesday, killing dozens of people following deadly bombings against security forces in recent days. Elsewhere, a roadside bomb killed 20 Shiite pilgrims in a separatist province, and gunmen opened fire on workers administering polio vaccinations, killing three people. The Pakistani government has come under heavy pressure to aggressively tackle a surge in militant violence instead of solely relying on efforts to start peace talks with the Taliban-led insurgents. The airstrikes in North Waziristan came after the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for a bomb that killed 26 soldiers Sunday when it tore through a military convoy inside an army compound in the nearby Bannu area. A suicide bomber also killed 13 people, including eight security personnel, Monday in the garrison city of Rawalpindi, near the capital of Islamabad. World BRIEFS From wire reports Black widows threaten Olympics Associated PressMOSCOW The search for three women suspected of planning terrorist attacks at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics has raised one of Russias most feared specters the female suicide bombers known as black widows. For more than a decade, women have committed many of Russias worst terror attacks, downing airliners, blowing up subway cars and killing people going to a rock concert. The term black widow refers to the belief that these women took the desperate step of becoming suicide bombers in order to avenge husbands or male relatives killed in Russias long fight against Islamic militants in the Caucasus region. Russian police leaflets circulating in the Olympic host city of Sochi said that one of the women suspected of planning an attack at the Winter Olympics is the widow of a militant. But there have been cases where the bombers husbands were alive at the time of their attacks, and one failed bomber said it was shame and a lack of money that drove her to terrorism. One of the earliest attacks to draw attention to female terrorists was the 2002 mass hostage-taking at a Moscow theater by Chechen militants 19 of the 41 attackers were women. The crisis ended with Russian forces pumping narcotic gas into the theater, killing all the attackers and at least 118 of the approximately 850 hostages. Police footage after the raid showed some of the women dead in theater seats with explosives attached to their bodies. Associated PressCHICAGO Top leaders at the Archdiocese of Chicago helped hide the sexual abuse of children as they struggled to contain a growing crisis, according to thousands of pages of internal documents that raise new questions about how Cardinal Francis George handled the allegations even after the church adopted reforms. The documents, released through settlements between attorneys for the archdiocese and victims, describe how priests for decades were moved from parish to parish while the archdiocese hid the clerics histories from the public, often with the approval of the late Cardinals John Cody and Joseph Bernardin. Although the abuse documented in the files occurred before George became archbishop in 1997, many victims did not come forward until after he was appointed and after U.S. bishops pledged in 2002 to keep all accused priests out of ministry. George delayed removing the Rev. Joseph R. Bennett, despite learning that the priest had been accused of sexually abusing girls and boys decades earlier. Even the board the cardinal appointed to help him evaluate abuse claims advised George that Bennett should be removed. I realize this creates a rather awkward situation, but I believe I need to reflect on this matter further, George wrote in a Nov. 7, 2005, letter to an archdiocese child protection official. Also against the advice of his board, George had Bennett monitored by another priest who was a friend and who vacationed with Bennett. Allegations against Bennett continued well after 2002. He has denied any wrongdoing in his communications with the archdiocese, but was forced out of ministry on Feb. 3, 2006, according to the newly public documents. George tried to get another priest, Norbert Maday, released early from a Wisconsin prison, where he was serving time after a 1994 conviction for molesting two boys, documents show. He also has apologized for how he handled allegations against former priest Daniel McCormack, who pleaded guilty in 2007 to abusing five children and whose case prompted an internal investigation of how the archdiocese responds to abuse claims. The issue is not when the abuse happened; the issue is what they did once it was reported, said Chicago attorney Marc Pearlman, who has represented about 200 victims of clergy abuse in the Chicago area. While disturbing stories of clergy sexual abuse have wrenched the Roman Catholic Church across the globe, the newly released documents offer the broadest look yet into how one of its largest and most prominent American dioceses responded to the scandal, even years after the abuse occurred. The documents, posted online Tuesday by victims attorneys, cover only 30 of the at least 65 clergy for whom the archdiocese says it has substantiated claims of child abuse. Vatican documents related to the 30 cases were not included, under the negotiated terms of the disclosure. Victims attorneys say theyre working to get files on the other 35 priests. The files are being released as George, a 77-year-old cancer survivor, awaits permission from Pope Francis to retire. Naming a successor for George will be the popes first major appointment in the U.S. church.

Snowstorm socks Northeast Associated PressPHILADELPHIA A swirling storm with the potential for more than a foot of snow clobbered the midAtlantic and the urban Northeast on Tuesday, grounding thousands of flights, closing government offices in the nations capital and making a mess of the evening commute.

The snow came down harder and faster than many people expected. Forecasters said some places could get 1 to 2 inches an hour, with wind gusts up to 50 mph. A blizzard warning was posted for parts of Massachusetts, including Cape Cod. Late in the afternoon, highways in the New York City metropolitan area were jammed, and blowing snow tripled or even quadrupled drive times. I just want to get to the Bronx, motorist Peter Neuwens lamented. Its a big place. Why cant I get there? In Jersey City, N.J., Stanley Gaines, wearing just a thin jacket and huddling beneath an overhang as snow stung his face, said he had been stuck for more than an hour waiting for a ride home from his appointment at a Veterans Affairs clinic. The storm was blamed for at least one death in Maryland after a car fishtailed into the path of a tractor-trailer on a snowcovered road about 50 miles northwest of Baltimore. The cars driver was thrown from the vehicle. Forecasters said the storm could bring 10 to 14 inches of snow to Philadelphia and southern New England and up to a foot in New York City, to be followed by bitter cold as arctic air from Canada streams in. Washington was expecting 4 to 8 inches. Associated PressCommuters wait Tuesday for a bus during a winter snowstorm in Philadelphia. A storm is sweeping across the Mid-Atlantic and New England.

It was right up there behind winning the Southeastern Conference and advancing to the Final Four. The sixth-ranked Gators knew finding success in tight games would be key to their loftiest goals. So far, it has them poised for big things in 2014. Florida (15-2, 4-0 SEC) is 7-2 in games decided by single digits this season and 3-1 in games decided by two points or less, a stark contrast to the teams struggles last season. We have an internal confidence as a team when it gets in those types of situations, said point guard Scottie Wilbekin, one of the teams four senior starters. We just have a confidence were going to pull it out, especially after winning so many of those games. It just builds more confidence. Florida, which plays at Alabama on Thursday, went 0-6 in games decided by less than 10 points last season and 0-4 in games decided by five points or less. Close losses to Arizona, Missouri, Kentucky and Mississippi prevented the Gators from possibly earning a higher seed they were third in the NCAA tournament. Florida lost to Michigan by 20 points in a regional final. Nearly a year later, the Gators believe all those defeats and disappointments have them hardened and better prepared for any situation. Our guys have a better understanding of what were trying to do, coach Billy Donovan said. When you are in those situations, it doesnt necessarily mean that just because you went through it last year, you are going to end up on the winning side of it because any time you are getting into those situations, anything can happen. And it has. Florida has won 14 of its last Associated PressFlorida guard Kasey Hill and Georgias Kenny Gaines chase a loose ball during the first half on Jan. 14.

The Citrus High School senior won the 154-pound weight class and qualified for the state meet during the FHSAA Section 5 state weightlifting qualifying meet Tuesday at River Ridge High School. She had a bench press of 165 pounds and a clean and jerk of 150 for a 315-pound total. She is a returning state qualifier and could medal if she can match those numbers at state. The FHSAA state weightlifting meet will be held Feb. 8 in Kissimmee. The top three lifters in each weight class qualified for the state meet. Citrus, the six-time Citrus County champion, was competing against teams from Pasco, Hernando and Citrus counties. Citrus Sam Kanawall and Anna Venero, along with Lecantos Breanna Johnson, also qualified. Kanawall earned a state medal in 2013, but an ankle injury kept her from lifting most of the year. She had a bench press of 160 pounds and a clean and jerk of 140 pounds to take second in the 183-pound class. Venero, who has qualified for state before, was third in the 183-pound class. She had a bench of 155 pounds and a clean and jerk of 140 pounds for a 295-pound total. Evans was excited to qualify for state. This is really important, she said. Im just set on getting to state. Lecantos Johnson also won her weight class, 139 pounds, to qualify for the state meet. She had a bench press of 140 pounds and a clean and jerk of 135 pounds. Playing through JOE DICRISTOFALO /For the ChronicleCitrus senior Jonathan Kreidenweis works the ball through the midfield in front of Hudsons Dakota Holland in the District 3A-7 boys soccer quarterfinals Tuesday at Weeki Wachee High School in Weeki Wachee. No. 2 seed Citrus slipped past No. 7 Hudson 2-1. Citrus boys soccer into semifinals with close win over Hudson; CR bounced TONYCASTRO CorrespondentWEEKI WACHEE Seventh-seeded Hudson did everything well except finish in the first of four District 3A-7 boys soccer tournament quarterfinal matches Tuesday afternoon against No. 2 seed Citrus. At Weeki Wachees Hornets Nest, the Cobras dominated time of possession, limited CHS to four shots on goal and dictated tempo. Yet it wasnt enough, losing 2-1. In a 1-all tie with 14 minutes remaining, Citrus sophomore goalie Dakota Gruzdas was whistled with a takedown of Hudson freshman Cody Wills. But on the ensuing penalty kick, Wills peg was blocked to the nearside post by Gruzdas. Six minutes later, Citrus senior Jonathan Kreidenweis broke the game open. He picked the pocket of a Hudson defender near midfield and went untouched inside the 18, before ripping a shot that Hudson keeper Brandon Erwin could not grab for the game-winner. With the win, the Hurricanes (15-3-1) face the Hernando/Weeki Wachee winner at either 6 or 8 p.m. tonight. Before the last-minute drama in the early game, both teams scored solo goals in the first half. Off a corner kick, Citrus senior Sean Flaherty threaded a cross to freshman Mauro Mondragon, who headed the attempt into the back of the net at 19:45. Seven minutes later, Nathan Binders header tied matters, 1-1. The loss deflated fourth-year skipper Jeff Wills as the Cobras season closed at 6-15-3. We dominated possession, shots on goal, tempo, every aspect, he said. We had chances to finish, but fell short. I felt like we could have won districts. We had enough talent and heart. On analyzing Citrus, They didnt do anything different from what weve seen, Wills added. Everyone feared playing Hudson. Give Citrus credit for finishing.

Defending champion Azarenka out of Aussie Open Azarenka ousted by Radwanksa in quarters Associated PressMELBOURNE, Australia Victoria Azarenkas 18-match winning streak at the Australian Open ended in an upset 6-1, 5-7, 6-0 quarterfinal loss to Agnieszka Radwanska on Wednesday to continue the flow of stars tumbling out of the seasons first major. Fifth-seeded Radwanska ended a streak of three consecutive quarterfinal defeats at the Australian Open with a stunning display of versatile shot-making that confused the big-hitting defending champion. She next plays No. 20 Dominika Cibulkova, who won the last eight games in a one-hour, 6-3, 6-0 quarterfinal rout of No. 11-seeded Simona Halep.

15 games, the one loss a somewhat fluky buzzerbeater at then-No. 12 UConn. Florida forced Shabazz Napier to take an off-balance shot in the closing second and had three players in position for the rebound, but the ball slipped by them and back to Napier for the game-winner. The Gators have been on the other end, too. Arkansas looked like it had Florida beat earlier this month, but Alandise Harris missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with 17 seconds to play one of many missed opportunities for the Razorbacks down the stretch and Wilbekin hit a jumper to send the game into overtime. Florida won 84-82. Wilbekin also made a jumper at Auburn on Saturday that put Florida up 64-61 with 1:21 remaining after the Tigers whittle down the Gators 13-point lead. Hes leading our team down the stretch, forward Will Yeguete said. Hes making good decisions, taking good shots. Hes not trying to force plays. Hes just trying to make something happen. Hes doing a really good job right now of just running the team and taking good shots. Others have stepped up, too. Forward Dorian FinneySmith had a huge offensive rebound in the final seconds to help beat Florida State 67-66. In a 77-75 victory against Memphis three weeks later, forward Casey Prather scored Floridas final eight points and went 4-for-4 from the free-throw line down in the closing minutes. Donovan said hes more focused on his teams decisions and execution in tight games than the final outcome. What I try to do is look at the game: what are we trying to do, did we execute, did we do our job? Shots go up, are we blocking out, are we chasing balls, what are we doing? Donovan said. Im looking more, instead of necessarily the result, are we doing the right thing inside those situations? And I think here of late weve done a pretty good of that, and hopefully that will continue.B2WEDNESDAY, JANUARY22, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS 000GWPT Team Prizes For 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place Auction Raffle Long Drive Contest Closest to the Pin Black Diamond Ranch Quarry Course Hwy. 491, Lecanto, FL 34461 18 HOLE 4 PERSON SCRAMBLE Includes golf, cart, breakfast, lunch, snacks & beverages Feb. 17, 2014 10 a.m. Shotgun Start $ 600 Foursome $ 150 Individual DOLLAR$ for SCHOLAR$ GOLF TOURNAMENT FOR ENTRY FORMS call Liz Blick at 352-249-9276 or EMAIL at firstname.lastname@example.org TAKE STOCK in CHILDREN of CITRUS COUNTY Vaneks PP goal lifts Islanders over Rangers Associated PressNEW YORK Thomas Vanek scored a powerplay goal with 4:38 left, and the New York Islanders rallied from two goals down for a second straight day and beat the New York Rangers 5-3 on Tuesday night.

Collectively, CHS felt it had dodged a bullet. The missed PK was so big, Gruzdas said. Had Hudson converted, the momentum would have definitely shifted in their favor. On Kreidenweis clutch goal, It was huge, noted Gruzdas, who finished with six saves. That goal was the game-winner. We were fortunate; we didnt play our best. I thought the difference today was we played to their level; we played their game, Kreidenweis said. If their PK goes in, it definitely changes the game. Veteran CHS mentor Steve Ekeli echoed coach Wills sentiments. Coach Wills was 100 percent correct, Ekeli commented. Did we deserve to win? No. The possession was probably 90/10 Hudson. They dominated in everything. We got away with one today, Ekeli said. Nobody wanted to play those guys. We played the ball way too direct; no crosses whatsoever. Give Joe Kelly credit, he did a great job defensively for us. Fortunately, tomorrow is a different day. Citrus Countys other entry, Crystal River (4-16), was eliminated via the eight-goal mercy rule with 60 seconds remaining by top-seeded Springstead (17-2-2), 9-1. In the Pirates tilt, Springstead had seven different players score a goal against keepers Kyle Kidd and backup ChrisKallenbach. SHS, which hasnt lost to CRHS since Jan. 23, 2001, 3-1, at Earl Bramlett Stadium, trailed 6-0 before a Kyle Dove shot glanced off junior goalie Matt McDuffs arms. The carom bounced to Raymond Dingler, who rammed home the rebound to snap the shutout bid. Though the Eagles emptied their bench after their fifth goal,the Spring Hill squad tacked on three late scores to make it 10 straight wins over the Pirates. We werent expected to make it this far, explained veteran Pirate mentor Bobby Verlato after his team was outshot 32-4. (Monday night) was a must-win and we came through. Tonight, we were tired, but we played hard for 20 minutes. Springstead is a quality side, he added. Our goal tonight was to score and Im glad we did. This team faced a lot of adversity, but its a testament to these kids that we got this far. She qualified in her senior year, her last chance to go to the state meet. I was feeling better after the bench, Johnson said. Im very happy. It shows that hard work really does pay off. Im very excited. I was nervous. This was the final qualifier for Citrus High head coach Tia Nelson, who is retiring from coaching, but not teaching, this year. My girls gave all they had, she said. Sam was remarkable. Lecanto senior Andreanna Van Quelef narrowly missed qualifying and took a fourth place in the 110pound class. She had a bench press of 105 pounds and a clean and jerk of 125 pounds for a 230-pound total. River Ridges Amanda Bianchi had 235 pounds to claim third place. THROUGHContinued from Page B1 STATEContinued from Page B1 Warriors have easy time with LionsThe Seven Rivers Christian girls basketball squad posted a 50-12 victory over Hernando Christian on Tuesday night. Alyssa Gage, a junior guard, had 24 points and six rebounds for the Warriors. Teammate Alexis Zachar had 14 points and 14 rebounds.

The struggling franchise confirmed the move Tuesday and plans to formally introduce him as the fifth GM in club history at a news conference Thursday. Licht has been with the Cardinals for the past two seasons, the last one as vice president of player personnel. From staff, wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS women on the WTA tour at 1.61 meters (5-feet-3), pounded Halep from the back of the court to progress to her first Grand Slam semifinal since the 2009 French Open. It was her second win in five major quarterfinals and served as a harsh lesson for Halep, who was appearing in her first. Im not so tall, but Im intense on the court, Cibulkova said, and Im powerful. Halep only won 10 points in the second set as Cibulkova relentlessly attacked. No. 20-seeded Cibulkova, who beat Maria Sharapova in three sets in the fourth round, will play Agnieszka Radwanska, who defeated two-time defending champion Victoria Azarenka Cibulkova said her experience in the quarterfinals was the biggest factor against Halep, as I was ready today and I knew what to expect ... I was perfect. Tigers claw past CR SEANARNOLD CorrespondentDUNNELLON The Dunnellon boys basketball team enjoyed what amounted to a victory lap in its gym Tuesday. The Tigers, on senior night, secured their spot as co-District 5A-6 champions for the regular season with an 81-51 rout against an overmatched Crystal River squad missing its top player. Though the Pirates effort never faltered, it wasnt enough to contain a more talented and experienced Dunnellon squad, which, in a turnaround year for the program, improved to 5-1 in the district and 13-7 overall. A coin flip will decide the top seed between DHS and Citrus, giving the winner a date with Crystal River (4-14, 0-6) and the other a meeting with Lecanto in the 5A-6 semifinals. On the back of a game-high 21 points from senior Willie Robinson and 16 second-half points from sophomore center Javonte Johnson, the Tigers steadily added to their advantage after leading 27-15 early in the second quarter. Dunnellons 60-34 rebounding advantage meant lots of putbacks for the Tigers, helping them garner higher-than-expected scoring behind 40-percent shooting. Forced to launch a flurry of 3-pointers in an attempt to close the gap, the Pirates finished the night 3 for 22 from beyond the arc. Also not helping the cause were 13 first-half turnovers by Crystal River. Its the same old thing weve been doing all year, CRHS head coach Steve Feldman said. We dont shoot a good percentage and we turn the ball over way too much. We have a perfect storm of not having a lot of size and quickness, he added. Those factors make you have to play about a perfect game in order to be in the game with a team with better athletes and more size and quickness. We are playing as hard as we can with the guys we have, and they are trying to do the best they can to compete. Senior captain Hunter Roessler paced Pirate shooters with 15 points, while junior forward John Hess grabbed a team-high eight rebounds for Crystal River. CRHS senior point guard Ty Reynolds wasnt able to attend Tuesdays game after participating in the NUC All-South Class Football Game & Underclassmen Showcase at Bradentons IMG Academy on Monday. DHS junior Andre Hairston had 12 first-half points two on a secondquarter dunk in posting a doubledouble, with 13 points and 10 boards. Im proud of these seniors, second-year DHS head coach Travis Licht said of his group of four that started alongside Hairston for senior night. They put a lot of work in and theyve been a big part of this turnaround. It was kind of fitting that those guys played that role in helping us clinch as co-district champs. Crystal River plays host to Lecantos Seven Rivers Christian on Monday, and Dunnellon is at Belleview on Thursday. SEMISContinued from Page B1

That will be 35 more holes than the first time they played together. Walker was a senior at Baylor when he used his parents credit card against their wishes because it was during finals to go through Monday qualifying for the Byron Nelson Championship. He got in the field and after taking one final exam, ran up to Dallas for a practice round at Cottonwood Valley using a local caddie. All of a sudden, Tiger is over on the front nine and my guys is like, Hey, theres Tiger over there, Walker said. This was 2001. It was Woods first tournament since he won the Masters for his fourth straight major. So he pretty much was owning everybody, Walker said. Woods skipped over to the par 5 that Walker was playing, so Walker picked up his ball and headed to the next tee. Woods picked up his ball and headed to the same tee. Hes like, Can I play through you? Im trying to play real fast and get a couple of holes in? I said, Dude, you can do whatever you want, Walker recalled. So this was the one hole they played together, and it was memorable for Walker for one reason. I am literally shaking, he said. I have every bad-swing thought possible dont shank it, top it, all that stuff. I make contact. I look up and its heading right at it. Cant see it because its kind of in the setting sun. We walked down there and he asked whats going on, I told him I Monday qualified. We talked and it was really cool and he was really nice. We get down there and his ball is about 15 feet away and mines about 6 feet away. Woods picked up his ball and was on his way. But there was a lesson for Walker. I can remember thinking, Man, if I was that nervous and I hit that good of a shot, I guarantee I will never be that nervous again my entire life ever, Walker said. He recalls narrowly missing the cut. And then he qualified for his first U.S. Open at Southern Hills. Walker played a practice round that week with Nick Faldo. No big deal. It was so easy compared to that one shot, he said. So when his wife sent him a text Tuesday that he was playing with Woods and Jordan Spieth, Walker offered a predictable response: Sounds fun.Westwood on boardLee Westwood feels he is settled in to his new life living in Florida and playing a majority of his events in America. And on Tuesday, he had his first meeting as a member of the PGA Tours Player Advisory Council. Westwood was among four players who were selected by the players serving on the policy board. I dont know what theyre expecting, he said. I dont know what to expect. I think Ill just sit there for a while and listen. Obviously, 20 years on the tour, Ive seen a few things, so I might be able to comment a little bit. Westwood, with 38 wins worldwide and a No. 1 ranking, never served on the tournament committee in all his years on the European Tour. He said he would have served on the committee, but he was never asked. I dont think Im controversial or anything like that, but occasionally sensible, he said. Occasionally, I have a good idea.Malnati and MLBAs a PGA Tour rookie, Peter Malnati is taking a close look at the schedule. The Major League Baseball schedule. Malnati is part of a recent crop of players who have deals with MLB.com, one of the premier websites in sports. He has the logo on his golf bag, and one of the perks really caught his attention. Malnati says he gets two tickets to any game all year. Im going to catch a lot of Kansas City Royals games, said Malnati, who wore Royals colors when he won a Web.com Tour event last year. The Royals? Thats exactly why Im a fan, said Malnati, who grew up in Tennessee and played golf at Missouri. I was dating a girl from Kansas City and we got to a game and I thought, This is pathetic. Its a great ballpark. This team needs fans and no one is here. So Im a die-hard Kansas City fan. MLB.com spokesman Matt Gould said it also has deals with Shawn Stefani, former NCAA champion Max Homa and Zack Fisher, who was medalist at Q-school last month to earn his Web.com Tour card. The general thinking is twofold, Gould said. First and foremost, were big fans of the PGA Tour in a general sense. Secondly, we think there is a great, smart crossover opportunity with a like-minded fan base for young and upcoming players. Associated PressPGA Tour golfer Jimmy Walker played one hole with Tiger Woods during a practice round in 2001. Walker will get the chance to play 36 holes with Woods during the first two rounds of the Farmers Insurance Open starting Thursday.
Section CWEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE I really love to just come out and have fun with the kids and challenge them through movement, Porcelli said. Physical education is all about movement. He has been teaching physical education for 23 years, with 10 of those years being at Hernando Elementary School. He was also a wrestling coach at Citrus High School for six years. This day and age we have to take ownership of that fitness piece and movement part MATTHEW BECK/ChroniclePhysical education instructor Michael Porcelli is ringed by his students recently at Hernando Elementary School. Porcelli has been helping kids keep fit for 23 years, and spent the last decade at Hernando Elementary. THECHILDRENHUDDLEDAROUNDHIMASTHOUGHHEHADJUSTSTEPPEDout of a Hollywood movie premiere. Hes no star but, rather, an action hero in the students eyes. Physical education instructor Michael Porcelli is their real-life superhero. But he doesnt notice that. ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writer of our lives, Porcelli said. If they understand that it is fun and they can do it different ways, it can help them down the road as far as staying active. We are trying to promote activity. We are not here to build a specific sport champion. We are here to give them an opportunity to find many ways to move and then to build on that as they get older. Voted Teacher of the Year in 2012, Porcelli said he is proud to educate in Citrus County. Our school really offers so many different opportunities for our students, he said. Our district does a great job teaching the whole child and not just the academic portion. Teaching the children to move by themselves, partnered or in a group is exactly what Porcelli does in his physical education classes. All of the kids are actively involved and working hard to help themselves, he said. Instead of competing against others, they are really competing against themselves and taking ownership in what they do. It carries into life. There is so much stuff that we do in physical education that could be integrated into what their classroom teachers do and integrated into everyday life. That is the focus of our program. Porcelli continued to explain that there are ample opportunities for students to become active at school. We have a before-school program, afterschool running program and physical education classes, he said. We try to give the children as many different activities as possible. We have more than 100 kids in the after-school runners club. We meet twice a week from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Some of our kids choose to compete in the races. Some of them do not, and thats fine. The main thing is that they are exercising and running. There are some kids that will get a beforeschool program, physical education class and after-school runners club all in one day. However, he feels that physical education can also continue at home. Go out and play catch with your child or take them to the park, Porcelli said. Free play is really important. If they can get 15 minutes more a day doing something, then that is a wonderful gift to your child.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or email@example.com. ABOVE: Porcelli understands the need for kids to learn how to work together, and frequently has students perform team-building exercises. On this day, groups of students linked arms to race other groups of students while attempting to keep their grip. LEFT: Porcelli takes a few minutes to instruct his students. His philosophy? Instead of competing against others, they are really competing against themselves and taking ownership in what they do. It carries into life. BELOW: While students get exercise as part of their physical education classes, they should be getting plenty at home, too. Free play is really important, Porcelli said. If they can get 15 minutes more a day doing something, then that is a wonderful gift to your child.
School supplies were collected by the Citrus County Cracker Quilters during the fall and presented to Bruce Sheffield, Citrus County School Coordinator, to be given to the children of Citrus County. The last collection was in December and the many items will be presented to the children starting in January. Pictured are: Geri Werking, Judy McVaugh, and Pam Oliver, Cracker members, and Bruce Sheffield.Special to the Chronicle Section CWEDNESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2014 The Suncoast Business Masters (SBM), a group of local business owners and managers, raised $47,000 at its recent 10th annual Dinner & Auction held at Tuscany on the Meadows. The funds raised at this event were donated to the Early Learning Coalition of the Nature Coast (ELC). The ELC operates and oversees two programs critical to the preparation of young children for educational success Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) and the School Readiness Program (child care subsidy to assist eligible families with the cost of child care). All funds raised at the event benefit at-risk children and families in Citrus County. Fundraiser nets $47,000 for Early Learning Coalition Cracker Quilters round up supplies for countys students Special to the Chronicle Special to the ChronicleOfficers of the Citrus MOPARS car club Mike Bonadonna, Greg Warhol and Gene Raby presented Sandy VanDervort of the Withlacoochee Technical Institute with contribution check for $500. Citrus MOPARS runs car shows during the year to earn funds to contribute to local charities. This contribution will be used by WTI to fund an automotive scholarship previously set up by the club. As a result of this charitable effort by local business people and community members, the state will match each dollar raised with $15.66, resulting in a total amount of $783,020 to support the School Readiness Program in our community. The funds will be used to provide quality child care/early learning services to approximately 196 at-risk children in Citrus County for one year. Research has shown that young children who participate in a quality early learning program prior to kindergarten entry are more likely to earn higher monthly wages as adults, are more likely to own a home, and are more likely to have completed higher levels of schooling than children that did not have the opportunity for participation in such programs. On behalf of Citrus Countys youngest citizens, the members of the Suncoast Business Masters and the Early Learning Coalition of the Nature Coast, the SBM thanks all who attended the event and extends its gratitude to the many merchants who donated products and services for the auctions. Pictured are most of the members of Suncoast Business Masters. They meet every Wednesday for lunch at Black Diamond for networking their individual companies and collectively to plan further ways to help local residents through charitable events. Business people who may be interested in joining the SBM should contact Sue Fullerton at 352-400-1721.

Associated PressNEW YORK Chiara de Blasio helped get her dad elected mayor, flaunting quirky head gear and joking from the podium on primary night. But on Christmas Eve, the 19-year-old did something else: She bared her soul on YouTube about her history of depression and substance abuse. The idea, she said, was to urge others to get help. Fiercely protective of her privacy while allowing her front and center on the campaign trail, her parents released a statement of support when the surprise video dropped. While the timing was questioned the four-minute video from her fathers transition team was released when many were distracted by the holidays advocates for Chiaras generation of digital natives lauded her speaking out publicly as the act of a brave young woman. Brave, yes, but foolhardy, perhaps, for other teens who dont have access to slick political handlers and, unlike Chiara, still face the perilous and competitive college admissions process. She already attends college in California. Handled or not, todays teens are notorious over-sharers on social media, but does Chiaras revelation symbolize something else as mental health advocates work to destigmatize the shame and silent suffering of those afflicted? What of other young people so inspired to publicly disclose their depression, drinking and drugging, eating disorders or struggles against suicidal thoughts? I think in general that its healing for people to be honest. I also think in the admissions context that its very challenging and problematic. I would advise a child to go very, very gingerly, said Carol Barash, founder and CEO of Story to College, a Manhattan-based nonprofit that has worked with thousands of students from diverse backgrounds on how to shape personal narratives for college essays and scholarships. Theres a difference between telling your friends and the whole world, she added. Most kids dont have a PR team to help them through what could happen, all the fallout from doing that brave, courageous thing. From 13 to 20 percent of young people in the U.S. age 3 to 17 experience a broad range of mental disorders in a given year, and prevalence appears to be increasing, according to a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which looked at data over multiple years from multiple sources. Suicide, for youth ages 12 to 17, was the second leading cause of death in 2010, the report said. We are seeing more public disclosure, said Cheryl Rode, senior clinical director for the nonprofit San Diego Center for Children, which is under contract to provide services through San Diego County. Some of it is because of the movement of social media but some of it is also within the field of mental health. Theres a large focus on stigma reduction, she said. Many teens feel like theyre the only ones experiencing whatever it is theyre going through, and so when others are speaking up, it makes it a little bit safer. Talking about mental health is really important. But talking to whom? That, she said, is a very individual and person decision that should definitely include parents. Most kids, when theyre sharing, are sharing more impulsively, Rode said. I would not say parents should encourage publicizing to a mass audience their youths mental health status. You lose control of it. Disclosing in a more limited personal way is a better way of building support. More young people suffering both mental health and serious physical health conditions are enthusiastic in recovery and treatment about sharing their stories to help others, she said. I think adolescents often see themselves as very altruistic, whether its giving advice to another kid in a group kind of setting or being the example, the role model. Thats often a very healing process for kids, Rode said. While trying to lessen stigma over mental health diagnoses and substance abuse, Los Angeles child and adolescent psychiatrist Anandhi Narasimhan cautions that public disclosure remains risky for young people, especially when coming out at school or in the college admissions process. It depends on the admissions committee and who reads the essay. You just dont know, she said. Family therapist Rick Meeves in Salt Lake City oversees a network of teen treatment centers for CRC Health Group and has worked with adolescents for 20 years. While he, too, considers Chiaras disclosure a positive, he also thinks other teens should tread lightly. Its heroic, its pioneering and its laudable, but I dont think were quite there yet as a society of being able to say, Hey look, I suffer from depression and I manage it. I would like to think that were almost there but Im not sure we are.

On Christmas Eve, Chiara, 19, bared her soul on YouTube about her history of depression and substance abuse, and urged others to get help. Chiara was lauded for her brave act of speaking out publicly, but experts say teens should be careful about airing their issues in public. Chiara de Blasio tells all. Should your teen do it too? Its heroic, its pioneering and its laudable, but I dont think were quite there yet as a society of being able to say, Hey look, I suffer from depression and I manage it. I would like to think that were almost there but Im not sure we are. Rick Meeves, therapist Associated PressWASHINGTON Tens of thousands more American babies, toddlers and preschoolers would be eligible for early childhood programs under a budget deal reached by lawmakers that advocates hailed as an encouraging sign that Congress is committed to early education programs. They are hopeful the next step will be the icing on the cake in early childhood education: Passage of universal preschool for 4-year-olds. There are still a lot of hurdles. The budget deal restores funds cut from Head Start programs that provide educational services to low-income students. The funds were removed under across-the-board budget cuts last year, and an estimated 57,000 children lost access to Head Start programs, according to the National Head Start Association. The new budget deal includes $8.6 billion for Head Start programs a $1 billion increase from 2013 that would expand Head Start to 90,000 new kids, according to the office of Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin, the chairman of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. Among those children are an estimated 40,000 new babies and toddlers who would be eligible for services under a $500 million expansion of early Head Start programs. The deal includes $2.4 billion for a program that provides grants to states for child care assistance for low-income families a $154 million increase from last year, meaning 22,000 additional children would be helped, according to Harkins office. Advocates were also encouraged that the agreement would fund a $250 million Race to the Top competitive grant program that encourages states to create and expand all-day preschool programs for low-income children. Congress is acknowledging the importance of investing in a childs earliest years, said Mary Kusler, director of government relations with National Education Association. Catriona Macdonald, a team leader with the First Five Years Fund, an advocacy group focused on early childhood development, said, The signal the Appropriations Committee sent with this legislation is that they have seen and heard the momentum behind early childhood education. President Barack Obama and Education Secretary Arne Duncan have long sought to improve the quality and availability of early childhood programs as a way to level the playing field for youngsters, primarily those who are poor and start kindergarten well behind their peers. They cite research that says every $1 spent on preschool has a $7 return because of money saved on public assistance payments and prison, and say only about a third of children attend high-quality preschool programs. Duncan, in a statement, praised the agreement, even though it did not include some key administration proposals. Specifically, the administration had sought $750 million in preschool development grants to states and $75 billion over 10 years for a Preschool for All program that funds preschool for low-income children and encourages states to create or expand programs to others. The budget deal disclosed late Monday still needs to be approved by Congress. It did not include the new preschool development grant program and Congress has not approved the presidents universal preschool program. Cost is clearly a hurdle, but critics have also questioned whether gains made in early learning programs can be maintained longterm; whether high-quality programs can be done well on a large scale; and whether the government should even have a role in educating young kids. House Republicans, in particular, have been reluctant to create new programs. Minnesota Rep. John Kline, the Republican chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, has said theres agreement on the importance of early childhood education, but before investing in any new federal early childhood initiatives, opportunities should be examined to improve existing programs such as Head Start. His Democratic counterpart on the committee, California Rep. George Miller, called the budget deal a significant step toward expanding early education programs. He said the next step is passing the bill he co-sponsored with Harkin that is similar to the presidents plan for universal pre-K. In other areas of education, the agreement would restore much of the funding cut from high-priority programs before last years acrossthe-board cuts, including special education programs and schools with a high number of low-income students. In higher education, it would include $75 million to create a First in the World Initiative to provide grants to colleges and universities to implement strategies that save money and improve graduation rates. It also would maintain the level of funding for the Pell Grant program.

The games will take place from Feb. 6 to 23. To celebrate this exciting international sporting event, The Mini Page offers readers a look at the host nation of Russia, the city of Sochi, and preparations for the Winter Olympics.Welcome to Russia Russia is a country of more than 140 million people and is also the worlds largest nation in size. Stretching from the Baltic Sea east to the Pacific Ocean, and from the Black Sea north to the Arctic Ocean, Russia is considered to be a part of both Europe and Asia, with the Ural Mountains dividing the two continents. For more than 70 years, Russia was the largest member of the Soviet Union. From the late 1940s until 1991, the U.S. and the Soviet Union were rivals for world power and influence in the Cold War. The Soviet Union broke up in 1991, and 15 nations became independent.Second Russian Olympics The Soviet Union was the host of the 1980 Summer Olympics in its capital, Moscow. But 65 nations boycotted, or refused to take part, in those games because the Soviet Union had invaded Afghanistan, a neighboring country, in 1979. Since the Winter Olympics began in 1924, 11 nations have taken a turn as host.St. Basils Cathedral in Moscow is one of Russias most famous landmarks. Located in Red Square, the church was constructed over seven years and completed in 1561. This is the first time that the Winter Olympics have been hosted in Russia, which is using the event to celebrate its history and culture. The nation has 160 different ethnic groups and nearly 100 spoken languages.

Along the eastern shore of the Black Sea, researchers have found cave dwellings and tools dating back tens of thousands of years. Sochis climate is very mild compared to much of Russia. While many areas of the country, including Siberia, are known for long, bitterly cold winters and short summers, Sochi has hot summers, mild winters and little snow. As a result, the city has become a resort destination. The ski resort of Rosa Khutor will host all alpine, or mountain, skiing events in both the Winter Olympics and the Winter Paralympics.A warm retreat As Sochi grew in the early 20th century, many sanatoriums (sanuh-TOR-ee-ums) were built to care for sick people, most of whom wanted to escape the colder parts of Russia. They hoped medical and spa treatments and warmer air would help to improve their health and allow them to live longer.Olympics in Sochi The Sochi Olympics will be held in two areas. The opening and closing ceremonies, figure skating, curling, speedskating and hockey will take place in the city itself. All of the outdoor competitions, including all skiing, sledding and jumping events, will take place near in the Caucasus Mountains about 30 minutes from Sochi. Sochi stretches more than 90 miles along the Black Sea coast. The Black Sea itself is about the size of California, and is bordered by Russia, Georgia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania and Ukraine. The Iceberg Skating Palace will host all figure skating events and short-track speedskating. Following the Olympics, this 12,000-seat arena will be taken apart, moved to another city and rebuilt. It may be used for many different sports. The Dendrarium is a botanical garden in the middle of Sochi. It was created in 1892 and has more than 1,700 species of trees, plants and bushes from all over the world.

It is the harmonic convergence of music, creativity, our communities and our joy of living. One person in particular holds these notions of Mardi Gras close to her heart Sandy Price, chairwoman of the Love Your Library Evening. Weve been gearing up for a fantastic event this year. Its our fourth year, were thinking outside the box and thought that the Mardi Gras theme would be a fun change of pace, from what weve done in previous years, Price said. This evening will be filled with beads, feathers, complimentary wine, a fabulous silent auction and even live Dixieland jazz music! Theres a lot of behind-thescenes work that goes into making this evening a fun, special event, she said. It always amazes me how much hard work and dedication that our committee members, various Friends groups, and library staff put into this event. It reveals that tenant of Mardi Gras about our communities and how they fervently believe that the Citrus County Library System holds a special place within the fabric of our community. To keep the vision of the library system moving forward, events such as this one are imperative for the long-term goals and growth, so the library can do what it does best offer quality information and educational opportunities to everyone. While tax revenues support the librarys ongoing operations, core collections, staffing, etc., supplemental funding generated from the Love Your Library Evening is needed to ensure the librarys stability as an indispensable community resource. With this years fundraising event, the Citrus County Library Foundation Fund, established by the Library Advisory Board, is on the brink of achieving its first major goal the creation of a $100,000 endowment, which will provide supplemental funds to the library annually. The funding will be used to help the library stay relevant with the most current trends such as mobile applications, ebooks and other digital resources; as well as provide cultural and informational programming to improve the quality of life within Citrus County. This evening is designed to be festively fun, and I think the guests will all be positively thrilled at everything that we have planned, Price said. It certainly isnt an event that anyone will want to miss! Youll be showing your support for the library system, while having a great time doing it. The fourth annual Love Your Library Evening will be staged from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, at the Central Ridge Branch in Beverly Hills. Tickets are $25 and currently on sale at all branches.

C8WEDNESDAY, JANUARY22, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Look before you leap is a well-known adage. There is a bridge equivalent, which is highlighted by todays deal. South is in four spades. West leads off with the top three clubs. How should South continue after ruffing the third? Note Norths raise to two spades. This risked putting his side into a 4-3 fit, but to rebid one no-trump with no minor-suit stopper would have been worse. Support with support, especially in the majors. And if South had enough to move higher and only four spades, he would have rebid something other than four spades (perhaps three no-trump). Souths jump to four spades promised at least a five-card suit. South will fail only if he loses one trick in each major. The textbooks will tell you that the percentage play in spades is to cash the ace and king. If declarer does that here, though, he will go down, losing one spade, one heart and two clubs. Instead, South should take the whole deal into account and do a little preparation, so that if he does misguess spades, he will still make the contract regardless of the heart position. Before touching trumps, South should play off his two diamond winners. Then he should cash his spade king and lead a spade to dummys nine. Here the finesse wins and the contract is home. But note that if East could win the seventh trick with the spade queen, he would be endplayed. If he leads a heart, declarer cannot lose a trick in that suit. Or if East returns a minor-suit card, South sluffs a heart from his hand and ruffs on the board.

My wife and I had been sharing a vacation with another couple, and I witnessed the husband kiss my wife on the lips as they left. You said if I trust my wife, not to worry about it. After you printed my letter, I wrote this couple a half-sincere take the high road letter, admitting I could have been wrong about interpreting that kiss and invited them to come for dinner and stay over. They never replied. But a month later, they drove into town and met my wife for lunch while I was at work. The husband asked my wife whether I felt neglected. How smug is that? A couple of weeks later, my wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at a lovely vacation spot, and a week later, she stayed overnight at this couples home while visiting a mutual friend who was ill. I am getting the distinct message that I am the one with the problem, and therefore, I can be completely bypassed when she makes decisions involving this couple. While I do not feel it would be right to ask my wife to close the door on this friendship, that last visit had me losing sleep. I wrote my wife a letter about my feelings, and even though I realize their relationship could be nothing, it still upsets me. Now that this husband has retired, I fear the pace will quicken in his efforts to put our friendship back where it was, but whatever my insecurities and shortcomings, I get angry just thinking about it. Am I making sense or just going bananas? More Maine Madness Dear Maine: We doubt anything untoward is going on, but your wife is deliberately disregarding your feelings. She thinks you are being foolish, and so she ignores you. This makes you feel marginalized and angry. Please stop writing letters and simply talk to your wife. Tell her gently that seeing this couple behind your back only makes you distrust her, and that eats away at the core of your marriage. Tell her you will back off if she will be more respectful of your feelings. Dear Annie: My wonderful husband delivers oil to peoples homes and works hard keeping homes toasty and warm throughout the winter. It is a demanding job, but for the most part, he enjoys it. The problem is, some customers dont plow or shovel paths to their tanks. Their driveways are cleared and the paths to their bird feeders, but my husband has to pull a heavy hose through knee-deep snow to reach the tanks. By the time he gets home, he is soaked up to his thighs, cold and exhausted. This is enough to make anyone cranky. He sure would appreciate it if people could make his job easier by shoveling a path to their tank. Please Be Kind Dear Please: Thank you for reminding our readers that any service people who need to have access to outside areas of their homes should not get lost in a snowdrift because the path isnt plowed. This is not only for the person who delivers oil. Its also the postal carrier, the meter reader and the cable repairman. If you know someone is coming, please see that they can get there. Dear Annie: I totally agree with I Need Nice Clothes, Too. The bigger sizes are tucked into the furthest corner of the store, the selection is small, the styles are horrendous, the sleeves are too tight and the tops are too short. My other complaint is that the large-size models dont look like me. They are tall with flat stomachs. I am 5 feet 4 and the grandmother of four. There are a lot of older, mature women with money to spend, so I hope the manufacturers start listening.
