The issue of the countys fire services MSBU is a hot topic between county government and the city of Inverness, while both sides attempt to hash out the details and find a solution that satisfies everyone. Inverness weighing options, unhappy with county-imposed MSBU City feels ambushedNANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS The bottom line is this: A year from now, if theres a fire at Stumpknockers or Subway or St. James AME Church or any other business or private residence within the Inverness city limits, who is responsible for putting the fire out? Since last October, the city of Inverness and county government have been increasingly at odds trying to hash out the details regarding the future of fire services in the city of Inverness. At issue: the county-imposed Municipal Services Benefit Unit (MSBU) for fire services. Currently, county residents, excluding Crystal River and Inverness residents, pay a flat $54 fee per residential property parcel. Businesses pay according to square footage, plus a fee for the land. Crystal River is exempt because it has its own fire department and provides its own fire services to businesses and residents. Currently, the county provides fire services to the city of Inverness, as it has for decades, even though the city has not opted to join the MSBU. All county property owners excluding Crystal River pay a fire services tax. Inverness pays $250,000 per year. Domestic call leads to meth arrest A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerHERNANDO Deputy Bryan Vick thought he was responding to an altercation, but ended up uncovering a den of meth manufacturing. Jonathon Harold Bierman, 34, was arrested early Friday and charged with manufacturing meth with a child younger than 16 years old present, domestic battery, drug paraphernalia and possession of a chemical with the intent to manufacture a controlled substance. His bond is $200,500. According to Biermans arrest affidavit, when Vick arrived at the site of the altercation, he immediately noticed, on a back porch, a bottle of muriatic acid and pieces of cut lithium batteries. The deputy recognized the items as ingredients used to manufacture meth. He also reportedly observed several one-pot cooks in the yard. The sheriffs offices Tactical Impact Unit detectives were called to the location. Bierman reportedly gave detectives permission to search the residence, which led to officials uncovering ingredients and equipment used to make methamphetamine. Authorities also called the hazardous materials response team because of the lithium shavings and muriatic acid found at the scene. Bierman told investigators that during an argument with a woman at the residence, he grabbed her purse, yanking on it hard enough to pull the woman from a couch. Bierman is also accused of grabbing Jonathon Biermancharged with manufacturing meth. Thats the longest any breed has been top dog since the organizations 1884 founding. German shepherds, golden retrievers, beagles and bulldogs are holding steady in the top-five pack, with Yorkshire terriers, boxers, poodles, Rottweilers and dachshunds continuing to round out the leading 10, which mirrors last year. But the comical French bulldog is newly on their heels after a decade-long popularity spurt. Surpassing the poodles 22-year reign some decades ago, the Lab has proliferated as a congenial, highly trainable dog that was developed to fetch game but has readily taken on other roles: searchand-rescue aid, therapy dog, competitor in canine sports and all-around family pet. The rankings reflect newly registered dogs, mostly puppies. The AKC doesnt release exact numbers, but estimates its registry has included more than 40 million purebred dogs over its history. Shih tzus and Chihuahuas have dropped out of the top 10, while Rottweilers and bulldogs have marched in. Labrador retrievers top dog for 23 years Bill Dunkle: Reluctant hero NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerHOMOSASSA George Madlock of Pine Bluff, Ark., will never forget William Leroy Bill Dunkle, who died Jan. 1 at age 79. Madlock met Dunkle in March 1952 when they were both assigned to the Company K 38th Regiment of the 2nd Infantry Division, both Army soldiers sent to fight in Korea. In a letter to Dunkles wife Shirley, Madlock writes: We were on line in Kumwa Valley, North Korea. A short time later, we went on night patrol. We had gone a long distance from our lines, and it was past midnight (when) suddenly we were ambushed by an enemy patrol. Bill and I were with a Cpl. Owens. Dunkles brave actions that night helped the rest of the squad to reach safety. Owens was killed and Dunkle was wounded. That was the last I saw of him, even though he came back to Company K. I cant help but remember being so puzzled, why they would send a 17year-old who wore glasses into combat. I got my answer on March 31, 1952, in Kumwa Valley, North Korea.

it be? Im alive today because of Bill. I never forgot Bill and thought of him so many times. Then 45 or so years later I was able to get in touch with him. We would meet every year at the Company K reunion ... and we talked every week. Thank you, Bill Dunkle. Ill never forget you. Born and raised in Wildcat, a little town in Pennsylvania, at 17, Bill Dunkle ran away from home to join the Army. His parents wouldnt sign for him, so he found an uncle who would. We were kids together, said Shirley, his wife of 55 years. Our parents played cards together and made ice cream, every Saturday night. After Dunkle moved away, he still kept in touch with Shirley. He continued to write to her while in the service. When hed come home it was the uniform, she said. He looked good in his uniform. They married when she was 20 and he was 24. They had three sons who each died tragically when they were young. For his service in Korea, Bill Dunkle was awarded two Purple Hearts and two Bronze Stars. During a battle, one of his buddies was captured, but later escaped and reunited with Dunkle, who had been wounded in a fire fight. They returned to the barracks and Dunkle was sent by helicopter to a field hospital, then to Japan. Less than a month later he was back in combat, at his own request, because his buddies were there, said Dunkles friend Frank Registarto. The second time he was shot while helping someone, he said. He said that in the battle when the corporal was killed, he was put in charge, although he didnt want to be he was just a corporal himself. He was a hero, but he didnt want to be, said longtime friend Priscilla Provencher. Registarto added that Dunkle didnt talk about his war experiences until about five years ago. It took a lot for him to talk about it, he said. Bill Dunkle was a quiet man, but with a dry sense of humor. An only child, he was a loner, even in a crowd. He rode and raced motorcycles, and when he rode in a group, he preferred being in the rear. Hed often ride to the national cemetery in Bushnell alone, Registarto said. He had friends from his unit buried there, and he would go and visit their graves, he said. But Dunkle also loved having a good time square dancing, water skiing, parachuting out of planes, boating on the Connecticut River. One time, while vacationing in Bermuda with his wife and Provencher and her husband, they rented scooters. However, after Provencher couldnt figure out how to maneuver hers, she hopped on the back of Dunkles and he took off flying. He was always careful and precise when he rode, but he was also fast, because he raced motorcycles, she said. Next thing she knew, they were going right between two trucks, with Provencher screaming. Then we stopped in traffic next to a very proper British woman wearing a fancy hat and he says to her, I like your helmet. She gave him a big smile, she said. Bill had no fear. Dunkle spent his career in commercial refrigeration. He was mechanically talented, could fix anything. In his Connecticut neighborhood, seemingly all of the neighbors had his number on speed dial. One day he brought home an old green piano that was discarded on the side of the road, took it apart and put it back together and it worked. Registarto said he and Dunkle were motorcycle buddies and bowling friends. Hed lazily roll the ball and give it his special hook, and hed hit the pins every time, he said. And every time wed go anywhere, he had to stop for McDonalds coffee. Mrs. Dunkle received the letter from Madlock the day before her husbands memorial service, Jan. 17, but had forgotten it at home. Thats why I called theChronicle, Registarto said. It moved us all to tears, and we wanted people to know that Bill had done this.A2SATURDAY, FEBRUARY1, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/STATE Lic. & Insured POOLS AND PAVERS 000H97R Copes Pool & Pavers YOUR INTERLOCKING BRICK PAVER SPECIALIST More Photos on our Facebook page 527-0012 72 HOUR BLIND FACTORY FAUX WOOD BLINDS, TOP TREATMENTS DRAPERY, SHADES, SHUTTERS VERTICALS The Savings Are Yours Because The Savings Are Yours Because The Factory Is Ours!

He admitted to shoving the woman and said he has hit her on numerous occasions. Bierman also admitted that he has been manufacturing meth for more than a year and has done it at the residence on several occasions with a 13year-old girl present in the house. The teen is only in the house two days out of the week. Bierman reportedly told investigators he would mix his meth refuse in with regular household trash to be hauled off. Many meth manufacturers normally burn their garbage in burn piles. When investigators spoke to the woman/alleged battery victim, she told them she was scared of Bierman and that he would force her to smoke meth with him even though she disliked the drug. She also acknowledged buying cold medicine (another meth ingredient) while under duress from Bierman. Bierman was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

State BRIEFS GOP demands apology over news segmentTALLAHASSEE The Republican Party of Florida is demanding a South Florida television station apologize after it aired a graphic that referred to the party as the Reprehensive Party of Florida. Party Chairman Lenny Curry wrote NBC affiliate WTVJs management Friday complaining about how the name was used while the station showed images of a GOP political ad during a story about the governors race. Later Friday, Mike Vasilinda of Capitol News Service apologized to the party and said his Tallahassee-based news production company was responsible for the error. He said an employee made the mistake while transcribing handwritten notes and was fired after the error was discovered. The station apologized in a written statement and planned an on-air apology during Friday evenings newscast.Professors charged by SEC in complex schemeTALLAHASSEE The Securities and Exchange Commission says two college professors were running a complex scheme that resulted in more than $400,000 in illegal profits. The SEC charged Gonul Colak and Milen Kostov on Friday. The two men have agreed to settle the charges by paying more than $670,000. Colak is an assistant finance professor at Florida State University. Kostov was a professor at the College of Engineering jointly run by FSU and Florida A&M University. An FSU official said Kostov left the college in 2012. FSU had been unaware of the investigation until Friday and the school was now looking into it. An attorney for Colak told the Tallahassee Democrat that his client did not knowingly violate the law but opted to settle the charges to avoid an expensive legal battle.State Supreme Court turns down Ryces killerTALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court is rejecting final appeals from the man who kidnapped, raped and murdered 9year-old Jimmy Ryce on his way home from school almost 20 years ago. Juan Carlos Chavez, 46, is scheduled to die by lethal injection Feb. 12 for the Sept. 11, 1995 murder in a rural area in Miami-Dade County. Chavez tried to raise questions about Floridas lethal injections procedures and was seeking public records to bolster his case. The high court unanimously rejected the arguments and stated that many of them mirrored objections raised by another Death Row inmate. The murder of Ryce horrified the state and led to the passage of the Jimmy Ryce Act, which allows authorities to commit dangerous sexual predators to mental institutions once they have completed their prison terms.

Early Friday, deputies Vincent Mascitelli and Gregory Locke were leaving the store when they saw a woman waving her hands and yelling for help at the gas pump. As they approached the woman, they saw a man holding his throat with both hands and turning pale. Mascitelli performed the Heimlich maneuver while Locke called for help. As the deputy performed the third abdominal thrust, the food blocking the mans airway dislodged. The victim and his wife declined further treatment once the man started breathing normally. The deputies said the couple repeatedly thanked them for saving his life. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inverness is once again named a Tree City USANANCYKENNEDY Staff writerINVERNESS Its official. The city of Inverness loves trees. For the 19th year, the city has been named a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation, joining more than 3,400 other communities across the nation. To be recognized as a Tree City USA, a community must meet four standards: have a tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a community forestry program with an annual budget of at least $2 per capita and have an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. Florida Arbor Day is the third Friday in January. National Arbor Day this year is April 25. This past year, the city of Inverness welcomed a number of trees, including the short, squat cabbage palmettos and the tall Canary Island date palms in the median of North Apopka Avenue as part of its Bicycle Boulevard project and about 10 live oaks on the banks of Cooter Pond. This coming year we plan to plant more live oaks in Liberty Park, said Katie Cottrell, Inverness public works director. The trees out there are aging and we want to bring in some new, fresh trees out there. The citys 2013 tree budget was $50,318.72, which includes tree planting and initial care, maintenance, removal and management, which includes education.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 firstname.lastname@example.org NANCY KENNEDY /ChronicleFor the 19th year, the city of Inverness has been designated a Tree City USA by the Arbor Day Foundation.

Sheriffs office warns of new scam Special to the ChronicleThe Citrus County Sheriffs Office (CCSO) is warning residents of a new scam that is coming through the mail. Its a letter from Global Investments Inc. out of Canada notifying the recipient they have just won the International Shoppers Lotto Powerball. A check, which looks authentic, is also included in the letter. The CCSO has been experiencing an increase in reports of citizens receiving this type of letter. The scam works as follows: A citizen will receive a letter in the mail from Global Investments Inc. which has a letter with the title Heritage Financial Group on the top. This letter states the recipient is a declared winner of the International Shoppers Lotto Powerball. Included is a check from the Silicon Valley Bank in Palo Alto, Calif. This check amount can range from $3,000 to $5,000. The letter includes instructions to call a claim agent and pay the government taxes on your winnings. The claim agent tells the recipient to deposit the check at their bank and call him/her back. The claim agent tells the recipient to mail him/her a check to cover the government taxes, which is approximately $1,895. Once the check is mailed, the claim agent stops payment on the original check, which the recipient has already deposited into their account. If you receive a letter like this, do notcall the claim agent named in the letter and do notcash the check. So far, everyone who has received a letter figured out it was a scam, so no losses have occurred. With fraud cases like these, the jurisdiction for prosecution lies outside of Citrus County and the CCSO can only provide an informational report to the agencies working with the financial institutions and their customers. The CCSO is asking people who are receiving these letters to remember that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If you feel that you have had a similar experience, call the Citrus County Sheriffs Office at 352-726-4488. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleWorkers were putting the finishing touches on the Cutler Spur Boulevard road project Friday. Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston said bad weather in the past few days hampered efforts to conclude work on the nearly yearlong road improvement project, but that the contractors are committed to working today to finish paving. Houston said after that, except for occasional minor work on the road, it should be ready for traffic. Work on the road began in March 2013 to improve the vertical alignment, add drainage retention areas, improve the drainage collection system, replace utilities, widen the roadway and add a 10-foot-wide walking and biking path.

The Huguette Clark collection sale at Christies comes after a feud over her estate was settled in the fall. Some of pieces were acquired by her father, a Montana copper king and senator who founded Las Vegas. Monets Water Lilies is estimated to bring $25 million to $35 million. Another masterpiece in the sale is Renoirs Young Women Playing Badminton. It has a presale estimate of $10 million to $15 million. Both will be offered May 6.Officer investigated over Bieber photo attemptMIAMI A South Florida officer is under investigation for attempting to take a photograph of Justin Bieber while he was in custody on DUI and other charges. Miami Beach police Sgt. Bobby Hernandez confirmed Friday that a female officer is being investigated for possible conduct unbecoming an officer. Punishments can range from a verbal reprimand to termination. The officers name wasnt released. Bieber was arrested Jan. 23 during what police describe as an illegal street drag race. In addition to driving under the influence, the 19-year-old pop singer was charged with resisting arrest and having an invalid drivers license. He has pleaded not guilty. Police said the officer attempted to photograph Bieber while he was in a temporary holding cell, and a higher-ranking officer intervened to stop the attempt.Sienna Miller testifies at UK phone hacking trialLONDON Actress Sienna Miller said she had a brief encounter with James Bond star Daniel Craig, but insists a British tabloid misconstrued the nature of the relationship based on a hacked voicemail message. Miller told Britains phonehacking trial on Friday that she probably did leave a message for Craig that ended I love you. But she said it was not some incredibly important declaration of love because she always signed off to family and friends that way. Miller testified by video link from New Orleans at the trial of several former News of the World staff. In recent days the trial has focused on evidence from a former reporter who said he hacked Craigs phone and used the I love you message as the basis of stories about a CraigMiller affair.

If Inverness joins the MSBU, the citys share would be $349,000, for a total of $599,000 for fire services. According to a statement from Sheriff Jeff Dawsy, revenues from the MSBU will have a direct impact on the fire services the city receives.With this funding, the Inverness Fire Station, which receives the most calls in the entire county, will receive an additional firefighter and critical, life-saving equipment, which would in turn ensure faster response times for residents that live within the city limits of Inverness. From the citys point of view, the growing conflict between the city and the county, including the sheriffs office which oversees county fire services is not the MSBU itself, but the way it was presented. City officials feel they were ambushed at the Oct. 15, 2013, Inverness City Council meeting when the county gave a presentation that ended with Dawsy telling council members if Inverness does not choose to join with the county in the MSBU, Inverness will need to find another fire services provider or create its own fire department at a cost that far exceeds the citys share of the MSBU. They passed the MSBU and then came to us and said, This is it do it. We didnt have the opportunity to have any input, said Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni. Council President Linda Bega added, We shouldve been in it from the beginning so we would know how to plan for this and what to expect. We shouldnt have been given an ultimatum. From the countys point of view, the city not joining the MSBU, yet benefiting from county fire services, creates an inequity why should Joe Smith in Lecanto pay when Inverness resident John Does house burns down if Mr. Doe doesnt pay when Mr. Smiths home in Lecanto catches fire? One of the concerns of Inverness council members is the potentially excessive financial burden on city businesses. However, as County Administrator Brad Thorpe recently told the Chronicleeditorial board, the city has flexibility as to how the MSBU is paid. It could be partially or wholly paid out of the city budget without excessively burdening residents or businesses just as long as the $349,000 is paid. Thorpe also said, If they dont pay the bill, the board (of county commissioners) has to take it out of the general fund to pay for it. They cannot not pay it because if they dont pay it, its not equitable to the payers of the MSBU. Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney said they could end up suing the city of Inverness. However, the county is not actively pursuing legal action, according to county spokeswoman Tobey Phillips. At the Jan. 21 Inverness City Council meeting, City Attorney Larry Haag advised the council, State law does not require us to join in an MSBU created by the county ... No court in this land can order a legislative body to enact any particular law. That is up to this council and its judgment. So I find these threats (of a lawsuit) to be pretty hollow. On Friday, County Attorney Kerry Parsons said its true the city cannot be sued for not joining the fire MSBU. That being said, the city does need to pay its fair share of the fire services, Parsons said, clarifying Commissioner Kenneys statement to the editorial board. The lawsuit option is not for non-joining, but for nonpayment, if that ever comes to pass. Meanwhile, the city of Inverness is weighing all options for fire services, which includes joining the MSBU. There are a number of options; thats just one of them, DiGiovanni said. As always, the city of Inverness will weigh the facts, look at the variables and proceed in the best interest of the businesses and residents. ... Our priority is to preserve and protect the interests of the community. We have to make sure that things are made affordable, attainable and of sufficient service levels to meet the needs of the community. A time limit has not been given for Inverness to comply or find other sources of fire service. A meeting between representatives from the city, county and the sheriffs office/fire services is scheduled for Feb. 7. One thing all parties involved do agree on is that the safety and wellbeing of citizens will not be jeopardized or sacrificed. I am confident that after further conversations with the city of Inverness, we will bring a resolution to this issue and continue to provide quality fire services to the residents of Inverness, Dawsy said. As we work towards an acceptable solution with city officials, we want to assure the residents of the city that their safety will not be jeopardized and will always be this agencys top priority.

Chuck Nadd knew something was up when Anheuser-Buschs private jet flew him from Fort Drum in New York to his hometown in central Florida within hours of his return from a tour in Afghanistan in early January. The 24-year-old Army helicopter pilot and operations officer had been told he was on a public affairs assignment to give a speech to a Veterans of Foreign Wars group in his hometown. But when he got to downtown Winter Park, hundreds of residents, relatives, teachers and friends greeted him with a surprise parade complete with tickertape and Anheuser-Buschs Clydesdale horses. The brewer, which played a central role in putting the parade together, has fashioned an ad around the event. It will run during Sundays Super Bowl, and Nadd said he hopes it gets people talking about honoring returning soldiers. I hope the visibility it gets starts a conversation about recognizing those who have served and served in a greater capacity than I have, Nadd said Thursday. I would hope this commercial helps people look for those heroes in their communities. Nadds involvement in the ad started when his girlfriend, Shannon Cantwell, nominated him for a VFW contest to honor a soldier with a tickertape parade in the soldiers hometown. Shortly before Christmas she found out Nadd, a 2011 West Point graduate, had been chosen. Cantwell made arrangements for his mother to come in from Alabama where she now lives and for friends to fly in from around the nation. In Winter Park, a wellheeled city of 30,000 known for its boutique shops and high-end restaurants along tony Park Avenue, city officials were contacted by the local film commission with a question: Could they put together a parade in two weeks? They were told the parade was for a local soldier and sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, working with the Defense Department. The logistics were a little tough since the whole thing had to come together in two weeks time, said Randy Knight, Winter Parks city manager. But within two weeks, 60 film production workers had come to Winter Park. Meanwhile in Afghanistan, Nadd was told by his battalion leader on Christmas Eve that he would be going home a week-and-a-half sooner than expected for his public affairs assignment. He also was told a camera crew would be following him when he returned for a documentary about soldiers coming back from Afghanistan. He returned to Fort Drum in early January and less than 24 hours later he was on the private jet to metro Orlando. Cantwell, who works in Washington for U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby, surprised him at the airport in a moment that is captured in the Super Bowl ad. I knew something was up when Shannon greeted me, Nadd said. From the airport, they drove to downtown Winter Park. Nadd noticed the barricades closing off streets and then saw the crowd of hundreds of people waiting for him. Some held signs that read Were glad youre home! It was a surprise, said Nadd, who has a look of amazement in the ad when he is told the parade is for him. Nadd and Cantwell were pulled by Clydesdales aboard the famously red Budweiser beer wagon through blowing tickertape, led by a marching band, police motorcycles and cheerleaders from his prep school. The best part of the parade for Nadd was at the end. Not only was he greeted by a bleacher filled with his friends and family from different parts of his life, but his mother was there, jumping up and down in excitement and waving an American flag. Although the parade was staged for an ad, the emotions were genuine, said Clarissa Howard, Winter Parks director of communications. The smiles were real, she said. Associated PressLt. Chuck Nadd and his girlfriend Shannon Cantwell wave as they ride on the wagon pulled by Clydesdales aboard the famously red Budweiser beer wagon in a parade led by a marching band in Winter Park. The brewer has fashioned an ad around the parade that will run during the Super Bowl. Soldier, hometown star in Super Bowl ad Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Republican Party of Florida is spending at least $100,000 on a Web ad blaming former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist for the states economic downturn and criticizing him for running for the U.S. Senate in the middle of it. The party is buying ad space on YouTube, Hulu and other websites. It comes as nowDemocrat Crist prepares to bring on a campaign manager in his effort to win back his old job with his new party and as a Quinnipiac University poll this week showed Crist with an eight-point lead over Republican Gov. Rick Scott. The ad is called Ran Away and lists the states economic problems under Crist including leading the nation in home foreclosures, soaring unemployment, steep drops in property values and more. Which governor took Florida to the bottom? an announcer asks. Charlie Crist. Whats worse, he didnt stay to fix the mess. He ran away. Tried to go to Washington instead. Charlie Crist slick politician, lousy governor. While its true Floridas economy tanked while Crist was governor, there was a global economic downturn and Florida would have been caught up in it regardless of who was governor. Still, Scotts campaign and Republicans are making the economy a main focus in Novembers election, including the fact that unemployment has gone down since Scott took office three years ago. Crist ran for Senate in 2010 instead of seeking a second term as governor. While he began the campaign as a Republican, he finished it as an independent candidate. State GOP buying Web ads critical of Crist Special to the ChronicleThe Florida Department of Health is modernizing its Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program. In this age of paperless banking, Florida WIC has continued issuing paper checks to its clients. Now, instead of paper checks, recipients will be issued cards that will operate as a debit or credit card. When they come in on Monday to the Lecanto office or Crystal River office, they will be issued one EBT card for the family. Citrus County WIC nutrition director Carol Burke said. This card will be used over and over with the benefits loaded onto the card rather than in multiple checks. With the EBT card, they can choose which of the food items they need at the time, swipe their card and it gets deducted. Its a lot easier for clients and much easier for the stores to redeem the benefits. WIC is a federally funded nutrition program that provides food and nutrition education to expectant and new mothers and their babies and children. In Citrus County, the program provides benefits to about 3,000 participants each month. The new system will begin on Monday, Feb. 3, in the Lecanto and Crystal River sites, and on Tuesday, Feb. 4, in the Inverness site. The state began converting to the EBT system for WIC participants in Miami-Dade County and is gradually working north. The entire state will be using the electronic benefits transfer card system by April. For information regarding the WIC program in Citrus County, call 352-726-5222. WIC switches to debit cards
Associated PressCARACAS, Venezuela About 2,000 motorcycles swarmed the streets of Venezuelas capital Friday to protest a proposed nighttime curfew on twowheelers as part of a government crackdown on crime. The protest barely disrupted traffic as organizers opted against a cross-town caravan and stayed concentrated near the slum of Petare on the eastern outskirts of Caracas. Boys, behave. Today were not going to take anything from anyone, Ricardo Vargas, one of the protests leaders, said as he walked through the throngs of bikers readying their engines. Use a helmet. Stop at every light. In the wake of the shooting death this month of a popular actress and former Miss Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduros government has supported proposals by cities across Venezuela to ban motorcycles from circulating after 7p.m., arguing that the vehicles are the favored means of escape for hit-men and robbers. But in cracking down on two-wheelers, Maduro risks offending part of his socialist revolutions base among the poor. The late Hugo Chavez as president actively courted the support of motorcycle drivers, and rolling gangs of armed political shock troops have long been used by the government to break up opposition rallies. Its politically dangerous territory, said sociologist David Smilde, who has spent part of the past two decades teaching in Venezuela and is now a senior fellow at the Washington Office on Latin America. Still, with polls showing security as Venezuelans top concern, the government has been under pressure to clamp down. Venezuelas murders have quadrupled in the 15 years since Chavez came to power, with more than 24,000 killings last year alone, according to the Venezuelan Observatory of Violence. While the government disputes those statistics, it says the vast majority of the slayings are carried out by motorized assassins. The bikers themselves, many of whom work as two-wheeled taxis, say that theyre being unfairly targeted. They say poor communities where public transport is slim would be the most hurt by any curfew, which they also say is unconstitutional. The restrictions recall a ban against passengers on the back of motor bikes enforced in Colombia during the cocaine turf wars of the 1980s and more recently in Honduras, one of the few countries in the world with a higher murder rate than Venezuela. A delinquent can move by foot, on motorcycle or in a Hummer, said Ivan Contreras, who for more than a decade has earned a living hurrying passengers through Caracas traffic-clogged streets. Theres no need to punish everyone for the actions of a few black sheep.

Judith Onder Obituaries Good night, planet earth Chinese fans of Jade Rabbit rover await news Associated PressBEIJING The Jade Rabbit did not go quietly into that long lunar night. Instead, Chinas troubled robotic moon rover given voice by a government news agency melodramatically pondered the meaning of its perhaps-fleeting existence, measured its contribution to humanity and, finally, said goodbye. Then it shut down for the lunar night, which lasts about 14 earth days its status unclear. The Jade Rabbits fans in China sent Lunar New Year greetings to the robot Friday, wishing it a speedy recovery from a malfunction it reported before going into hibernation. Chinese people have been worried about the Jade Rabbit, wrote a microblogger with the username Yang Huiyan. Hope the New Year will bring good luck to him. The official Xinhua News Agency had carried what it described as a diary entry the rover wrote before it shut down. Despite being usually staid in their coverage of national events, Chinese state media tend to put a folksy touch on certain stories that help drum up national pride. State news outlets are especially fond of giving cutesy personalities to non-human actors playing key roles in propaganda efforts, whether they are pandas returning from zoos abroad or, in the Jade Rabbits case, the stars of its military-backed space program. In the Xinhua diary entry, the Jade Rabbit takes on the tone of a heroic adventurer who has encountered an obstacle that might prove insurmountable, and who is trying to put on a brave face as it pens what might be its final farewell. If this journey must come to an early end, I am not afraid, said the six-wheeled, solarpowered rover. Whether or not the repairs are successful, I believe even my malfunctions will provide my masters with valuable information and experience. The personification of the rover has been a hit with the Chinese public. Parts of the Xinhua report were quoted by an unofficial Chinese microblog account written with the Jade Rabbits voice, and the blog was flooded with tens of thousands of sympathetic comments. As for the rovers fate, a report Thursday by the state-run Science and Technology Daily newspaper said that would only be clear at the end of the lunar night. Calls to the space program rang unanswered Friday, a public holiday. On Sunday, the rover said its masters the space programs engineers, presumably had found an abnormality in its control mechanism and were working through the night to fix it. It provided no details on what the problem was, but hinted that it was serious. Even so, I know I may not make it through this lunar night, it said, striking a somber note. The Jade Rabbit began operating last month after making the first soft landing on the moon by a space probe, Change 3, in 37 years. The moon lander is named after Change, a mythical goddess of the moon, and the rover, after Yutu, or Jade Rabbit in English, the goddess pet. In the diary entry, the Jade Rabbit recounted its achievements in the 42 days it spent on the moon, saying it traveled more than 110 yards and collected a large amount of scientific data with a panoramic camera, radar and other equipment. But in a line clearly written with the aim of tugging at heartstrings, the Xinhua report had the Jade Rabbit appealing to its readers to take care of the space craft that brought it to the moon, Change, in the rovers absence. If I really cannot be fixed, when the time comes, I hope everyone will remember to help me comfort her, it said. The rover was designed to roam the lunar surface for three months while surveying for natural resources and sending back data. Then it ran into problems as it was shutting down in preparation for the lunar night when the temperature drops to minus 180 degrees Celsius (minus 292 degrees Fahrenheit). The sun has already set here and the temperature is falling very quickly. Ive said a lot today, yet still feel like its not enough, the rover said in its concluding paragraphs. Ill tell everyone a secret. Actually, Im not feeling especially sad. Just like any other hero, Ive only encountered a little problem while on my own adventure. Good night, planet earth. Good night, humanity. Associated PressChinas first moon rover, JadeRabbit, touches the lunar surface Dec. 15.

Sales of big-name toys like Barbie and Fisher-Price slid during the holidays, leaving investors in the toy maker disappointed. Growing sales of food service gear, as well as a lower tax rate, helped to offset falling demand for the companys signature cranes.

Interestrates Stocks decline Associated PressNEW YORK Stock investors were hit from all sides in January. Concerns about the global economy and U.S. company earnings, as well as turmoil in emerging markets, led the Dow Jones industrial average to its worst start since 2009. However, many investors remain hopeful that the problems will not spill over into the rest of 2014. They even see the downturn as healthy, given the U.S. markets rapid rise last year. The Dow slid 5.3percent in January while the Standard & Poors 500 index fell 3.6percent and the Nasdaq composite declined 1.7percent. Investors entered the year with some degree of skepticism and nervousness. The stock market went basically straight up in 2013. The S&P 500 index ended 2013 with a gain of nearly 30 percent, its best year since 1997. No amount of negative news could derail the market last year, said Jonathan Corpina, a floor trader at the New York Stock Exchange with Meridian Equity Partners. But no stock market can go straight up forever. Many investors expected 2014 to be a more muddled and volatile year for the market. Market strategists late last year were looking for the S&P 500 index to notch a modest gain of 4percent to 6percent, ending in the range of 1,850 to 1,900. Investors were also looking for more pullbacks this year and possibly a correction, the technical term for when a stock market index like the S&P 500 falls 10 percent or more. Three months ago, analysts at Goldman Sachs said there was roughly a 60percent chance that a correction would happen this year. Investors point to the December jobs report, released on Jan.10, as the event that started the troubles. The U.S. government said employers created only 74,000 jobs in December, the worst month for job creation in since 2011 and far below expectations. Up until then, weeks of data showed the U.S. economic recovery was accelerating. U.S. companies were selling record levels of goods overseas; layoffs had dwindled; and the Federal Reserve was pulling back on its economic stimulus program, citing an improving economy. Many investors called the December jobs report as a statistical fluke. But the report has weighed on stocks all month, investors said.

A global sell-off in stocks this year has left many small investors more puzzled than panicked and unsure how to act. Small investors fight urge to sell as stocks drop Associated PressNEW YORK Januarys global sell-off in stocks has left many small investors more puzzled than panicked and unsure how to act. Theyre holding on for now as prices continue to tumble, but their anxiety is mounting. The number of small investors who say they feel bearish soared this past week, according to a U.S. survey. Some stock funds have been hit with their biggest withdrawals since 2012. If more people start selling, it would reverse a new and surprising trend in some of the worlds biggest economies: individuals moving back into stocks after years of shunning them. I dont know what to do, said Ken Duska, a retiree in Mingo Junction, Ohio, who is sticking with his investment plan for the moment, though hes not sure thats wise. After (the) upswing last year, it probably isnt going to continue. Small investors around the world were on edge even before growing signs of a slowdown in China and plunging emerging-market currencies dragged many stock indexes down to their worst start of a new year since 2010. They worried stocks were overdue for a drop, after soaring by double-digit percentages in countries like the United States, Japan and France in 2013. In the U.S., many noted, the market had not fallen by 10 percent or more, known on Wall Street as a correction, for more than two years. Now, with the Dow Jones industrial average down 5percent from a recent peak, one is closer at hand. The question is, Is this all of it, or is there significantly more to come? said Greg Sarian, a managing director at the Sarian Group at HighTower, a wealth advisory firm in Pennsylvania. Anxiety has ramped up in Asia, too. Clients were very worried as they havent seen such market jitters in a while, said Lee Young-hwan, a private banking consultant at Daishin Securities Co. in Seoul, South Korea. Still, he said, many are more inclined to snap up stocks now at lower prices than to bail out. That countrys main index, the Kospi, is down 3.5percent since the start of the year. In Japan, the Nikkei is off 8.5percent, after soaring 58percent last year. The Hang Seng in Hong Kong has fallen nearly 5.5percent, after a 3percent gain. In Moscow, where the main stock index has been dropping for a year, Marina Pliskina, an English teacher, decided shed finally had enough. She recently sold all of her stocks. You want your money to last, but then it goes down and down, she said. Since the 2008-09 global financial crisis, small investors have mostly dumped stocks. But recently, buoyed by strengthening economies in the developed world, they have crept back into the market in some countries. In the final four months of last year, nearly $100 billion flowed into stock mutual funds in seven big economies tracked by Lipper Inc., a fund data provider. The countries are the U.S., which accounted for much of the buying, as well as Japan, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Canada and South Korea. Now, that flow of money might reverse as investors grow worried. At the start of the year, more than twice as many U.S. investors said they were bullish on stocks than said they were bearish, according to a survey by the American Association of Individual Investors. Now, the bulls and bears are neck and neck, with sentiments yo-yoing along with the indexes. Ive lost ... maybe $50,000 in the past week, and Im not happy about it, said Scott Woodall, 44, of Acworth, Ga. I hate the stock market. The global tumble started more than a week ago after China reported economic growth had slowed and a key manufacturing measure suggested that sector was contracting. Stocks dropped in developing countries, along with their currencies, on fears exports of iron ore, soybeans, electronic components and other goods to China would slow. Adding to the emerging-world woes were some homegrown problems double-digit inflation in Argentina, for instance, and a corruption probe in Turkey that threatens to destabilize the government. Then, on Wednesday, the U.S. Federal Reserve announced it would be pulling back even more from its bondbuying program. That buying has helped pushed U.S. interest rates to record lows, and sent investors to emerging markets in search of higher yields. Now the tide of cash is reversing, hammering those economies as investors pull money out. A sign of the times: The price of gold, considered the ultimate safe asset by spooked investors, is up 3.5percent this year after plunging 28percent in 2013. Investors are also buying U.S Treasury bonds, another refuge in fearful times, despite the Fed decision to scale back its purchases. The yield on the benchmark 10-year note, which falls when prices rise, has dropped from 3percent at the start of the year to 2.65percent, a big move. There were other signs Friday that fear might be spreading. In the U.S., the Standard and Poors 500 index, a broader measure than the Dow, was down 0.7 percent, a fifth loss in seven trading sessions. That said, the index is well shy of a correction. It is down 3.6 percent from its record close on Jan. 15. So far, some small investors seem willing to ride out the storm, though they dont sound too happy. Leighanne Franklin, a mental health therapist in Greenwood, N.Y., wondered whether U.S. stocks are just another bubble. But she is adding to her retirement account anyway, partly because she doesnt want to miss out on matching funds from her employer. Its better than putting it in a savings account, she said.
OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2014 Leave the dog homeRecently, my wife and I decided to spend a pleasant afternoon at the Manatee Festival. It was quite crowded. While my wife checked out one of the booths, I observed two women, each with a dog on a leash, meet and start chatting. One fed both dogs some treats and then suddenly one of the dogs attacked the other, grabbing the base of its tail in a vise-like grip. After about 30 seconds of yelping, growling, and the owners trying to pull the dogs apart, bystanders stepped in and tried to separate them. Finally, the aggressor dog let go. The whole incident was upsetting. Someone could very easily have been bitten. Afterward I wondered why people bring their dogs to crowded events like the Manatee Festival. Do they not think something like this could happen? Do they feel they need their dog with them at all times? Do they think others will find the dog cute and they will get attention? My suggestion is to leave your dog at home. If you feel you and your dog need exercise or socializing together, take it for a walk or go to the dog park.Donald Bell HernandoBe wary of Iran dealIn reference to the headline story in the Jan. 13 issue, Iran reaches deal. Two words come to mind. Be wary. It is a mistake to trust anything Iran says it will do. It is a mistake to think the United Nations Watchdog Agency can confirm what Iran is really up to. It is a mistake to give Iran $7 billion and believe they (it) will not use that money or a portion of it, to further their nuclear weapons program. There are many other mistakes to be made when dealing with Iran, and one huge mistake would be not to read the new book by Kenneth Pollack, title: Unthinkable, Iran, The Bomb, and American Strategy.Vern Stephen Hernando Editors note: Paul Herbert, a snowbird visiting Citrus County, is sharing his daily letters to family and friends with the Chronicle. For more, see chronicleonline.com.Little to get excited about here on this low-activity, cool, overcast day. If you have to skip a day on this blog, today would be the day, although maybe Im not supposed to tell you that. Hopefully the editor wont get mad and end up blackballing me within the fourth and fifth estates (you need an org chart for all the estates) for scaring away potential readers. Id hate to think that that (yes, two thats) single sentence might have cost me a seat at the next staff meeting of a major newspapers editorial committee. But like intrepid chroniclers before me, I call it like I feel like calling it. We sat around most of today, catching up on our reading. I think my IQ has dropped about 10 points since we got here, and I dont have that many IQs to begin with to be letting them go without a fight. The cause does not relate to anything about Florida itself. Rather, Ive been reading much less than usual. The reasons: Partly because I dont have time (weve kept so busy every day), and partly because whenever I start reading, Buster crawls all over my face and head, demanding a seat, and my undivided attention. If youre interested in reading great first-hand recollections of Citrus County history in the old days (about 1892 to 1950) pick up a book by Judge E. C. May. I bought a couple of his books at the Floral City Heritage Museum. Theyre great, humorous anecdotes of life here back then. We cant help but notice a paving crew has spent the last two weeks repaving a nearby road. Wow, I cant believe how little time they spend in tractors (or whatever their heavy equipment is called) that are actually moving. Almost all their time is spent pointing, looking around, and walking. All that pointing reminds me of politicians who aimlessly point while their pictures are snapped, giving them a takecharge photo for the voters. Well ignore the potholes in those roads, raise taxes in that precinct, and construct a costly bridge to nowhere over there. The thumbs-up thing looks dorky, but a candidate pointing to something, anything hes a leader! And why are the pavers always looking around? Who or what are they looking for? Certainly not cars, because no one drives on that road except the couple dozen people who live on it. The workers would have a greater chance of getting hit by a confused squirrel than a car. Walking. Im glad theyre burning calories and keeping their HDLs high, but with all that walking youd think they had entered a charitable event where they get sponsored for a certain amount of money every time they stroll up or down the street. Thats it all day: walk this way, then that way, then repeat ... Ive been in those charity events and I didnt walk as much as these guys do. And its a very short street. Ill keep this muckraking report brief. Emmys (or is it Pulitzers?) get thrown around, and people pay good money, for hard-hitting, gotcha journalism like this. Wheres my Geraldo Rivera video crew when its needed? If I were a Florida taxpayer Id call somebody to complain, but Im not so I wont. Besides, I wouldnt know who to call, and Id probably end up getting a snide recording on a cheap 1980s answering machine. One guy sat in his paving machine, with the engine on, for what seemed an hour. Neither he nor the tractor moved. I thought of offering him 10 bucks to let me take it for a spin. It would be good fun to ride one of those through the McDonalds drive-thru, and it would have certainly added a unique adventure to my snowbird journal. In the time he sat on that tractor, he could have joined me for gator nuggets and a beer, and resumed his contemplative thinker pose without missing anything or being missed by anybody. Dont get me started.

Its deeper, already has cranes to load and unload barge cargo and has rail service. Duke, however, said it has no interest in joining in a Port Citrus initiative. While deeper than the barge canal, a company representative said its not suitable for large cargo ships and that the company has spent nuclear fuel rods in the canal vicinity, hence there are serious and long-term security issues. While County Administrator/Port Director Brad Thorpe notes being a part of the port project could enable Duke to have its canal dredged with federal Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund dollars, that seems an insufficient lure to catch the power giants interest. Until private business interests conclude theres a strong and steady demand for cargo to come in, and be shipped out, of Port Citrus regardless of the location the concept isnt viable. Thats not to say the concept of a port wasnt worth exploring; nothing ventured, nothing gained. However, at this time county governments focus would best be on more near-term initiatives that could bolster the county economy. The need to foster the establishment of shovel-ready industrial sites is a more pressing, more achievable priority than waiting for shipping interests to decide if theyll commit billions of dollars to developing a port in rural northwestern Citrus County. While it would be convenient for Port Citrus to be in partnership with Duke and that companys existing port, any such alliance could be decades in the making.

An inch of snow falling evenly on 1 acre of ground is equivalent to about 2,715 gallons of water.Papers looking goodWhat a pleasant surprise to see the (Jan. 25) Saturday Chronicle with a lot more in it than religion today. There have been a lot of improvements made to the Chronicle over the past year and you guys are really looking good. Thanks.Losing tax moneyWont the county purchase of the Meadowcrest building take the property off of the county tax rolls? I think wed be losing quite a bit of money.Homeless have plentyI, for one, feel so sorry for the homeless, but if theyre able to ride a bicycle, theyre physically able to work. They all have cellphones, they all have their big ol backpacks and they smoke cigarettes. Ive seen a lot of them sitting on the bench enjoying life. God only helps the ones who help themselves.Bake sale for egosId like to say repay the taxpayers. The monies that were squandered by the hospital board for attorneys fees and settlements to fund their infighting should be repaid from the $90 million with the rest going into the trust fund. They should find new ways of funding their egos. Have a car wash or a bake sale.Need consignmentThis call is in regards to the clothing consignment stores I recently called up (a store) and they are not taking any items until March.

SOUND OFFCALL563-0579 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE OtherVOICES Hot Corner: MARIJUANA Just a stepping stoneI cant understand why some lawmakers are pushing for medical marijuana to be legal It is highly addictive and just a stepping stone to other drugs, for instance: PCP, mescaline, LSD, cocaine and heroin. People who smoke marijuana have no desire to do anything but to get high. If you think we have a problem with crime now, wait until that law is passed. Someone who knows.Blocking alternativesThere it is, front page, Tuesdays paper (Jan. 28): Pam Bondi did not want to let medical marijuana on the ballot to vote. All they are is, theres the gang again. Theyre just, theyre gatekeepers for the pharmaceuticals and the elite. They dont want people to have an alternative for making themselves better, getting well. Smoking can of wormsI just heard a news article on Channel 9 where they were making reference to the marijuana amendment thats going to go on our ballot in November. The statement was made that Charlie Crist is supporting this as a Democratic candidate for governor and his employer spent $4 million to see that it got on the agenda. What a can of worms this could be.
Residents see the impactI disagree with Rebecca Bays statement that most Citrus County residents and businesses, public employees, arent fully aware of the impact of visitors on our economy. They know. Business owners and most residents know there are a lot of tourists that come in here to see manatees and theres the giant bicycle gatherings they have I think were aware tourisms a big thing. Blocked culvertI was wondering, the bridge thats on the culvert thats under Cutler Spur, you cannot get under there. You cannot get through there in a boat anymore. The construction has degraded the pipe and crushed it in and why is that so? Thanks for the coatsThank you, Kaylas Coats. The parents who lost their 9-year-old child collect coats for children and bring them to the schools so that the children without coats may have them and dont have to worry about being cold. They also donated to the homeless shelters over 100 coats for adults, for the people who needed them and the people in the woods, and we thank them tremendously. Homosassa Lions chairperson for homeless, Sue Marchetti.Hello? Hello?Its getting almost impossible to contact Social Security. They closed their office in Crystal River. You have to now go to Ocala. They reduced their hours in Ocala. They reduced the number of days theyre open in Ocala. They put you on hold with an answering system. They never answer and finally disconnect you over and over again. It just shows that theres no consideration anymore for the elderly. The service (went) from poor to worse to nonexistent. Very, very sad.No one on our sideThe ruling government in Florida got rid of Nancy Argenziano because she was trying to help the common people in this state and county. Rick Scott and his Legislature got rid of her. Now theyve got somebody in there thats cozy with the utilities. We have no one to fight for us. I dont know how anybody in this state survives without a pension and Medicare. I just dont know how they do it, if they do it.Define machineIn the Sound Off somebody asked today if he was talking to a machine or to a recorder. What in the heck is the difference? Is he all right or what? Isnt a recorder a machine? Phone folliesI am fed up with the crank telephone calls from every business with their hope that I will answer the phone. I only see the name on the window and do not pick up the receiver. But last night while I was watching a movie on TV, they had their message fully blocking off one-half area on the screen, who they were with their message, as well as the phone number. This is going way too far now. Who can stop all these unwanted calls all together? I put my name down on the do not call list, but they want us to write down who called and their phone number, as well as what time of day. We can not do this easily.Theres a pill for thatThis is a response to the letter to the editor today, Jan. 22. The writer states, What if Big Pharma comes up with a pill with the same medicinal advantages of marijuana? Well, in 1985 the FDA approved Marinol, which is basically a synthetic version of marijuana. It was approved to be used for nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy and for increasing the appetite. Just thought you might want to know.Quite a fellowWhat does it mean when it says a doctor is fellowship trained? Didnt he go to medical school like all the others or did he train under another doctor? I am really curious.Editors note:You ask, we answer: We Googled fellowship trained and the first entry that popped up was a lengthy explanation by The Orthopaedic Group. It said an orthopedic surgeon can enter a fellowship after five years of residency. The fellowship provides another year of specialty training.

I dont recognize this person, if in fact it is one person or the Republican Party. However, lets do a five-year job evaluation for President Obama who was elected with no real resume. When he took office in 2009, the U.S. labor participation rate was 65.7 percent. In December 2013 it was 62.8 percent, the lowest it has been since 1978. The unemployment rate just dropped to 6.7 percent, but the Associated Press credits this drop to people dropping out of the work force not finding a job. The lowering of the labor participation would indicate this also. On Jan. 10, the U.S. Labor Department stated the real unemployment rate is 13.1 percent. When he took office, the U.S. national debt was $10.6 trillion, five years later it is $17-plus trillion. The stock markets are up, but that is due to the Federal Reserve putting $85 billion per month into our economy, creating a false economy. Interest rates on CDs and savings accounts are .2 or .3 percent. This is especially hard on retirees who depend on their savings. The infusion of money will create inflation, which our government says remains low. However, food prices keep going up and/or the quantity is getting smaller. A drum of crude oil is about $92, in 2009 it was about $50 and a gallon of regular gasoline is about $3.31 today and in 2009 about $1.70. I would say that is inflation. The U.S. poverty rate has been at 15 percent since 2010. Its the first time that the poverty rate has remained at or above 15 percent three years running since 1965. The January 2009 rate was 13.8 percent. Family medium annual income has fallen from $53,285 in 2009 to $52,100 today. He has established ACA (Obamacare) despite polls showing that between 54 and 56 percent of citizens dont want it. It is a 2,700 page bill that no one in Congress read before the vote, but Speaker Pelosi said we would find out what was in it after it passed. It passed with the president and his party promising That if you like your present policy you can keep it. Since then millions of citizens and their families have lost their plans and coverage and the new plans cost more. The promises turned out to be lies, which they knew from the beginning were not true. As for shutting down the government which cost us billions, the sequestration idea came from the executive branch and he signed the legislation into law. Afghanistan, with all the restrictions they have placed on our troops, why are we still there? We have lost 2,162 brave Americans, 1,593 since 2009. He told us we would be out of there. Remove all restrictions, let us win or get out now. Our ambassador and three Americans were killed in Benghazi by terrorists; nothing was done to help them. Ive read that we have people deployed who can get to any trouble spot within two hours. They said there wasnt enough time to get help there. How did you know how long it was going to last? It lasted eight hours. IRS, NSA, Fast and Furious and AP reporters being checked because you didnt like what they wrote, but you claim you didnt know anything about these. Hard to believe. All unconstitutional and criminal. Where is mainstream media? Bob Balogh HomosassaConcerned citizenry not vocal minorityOnce again the Chronicleeditorial board has found an opportunity to fault what they call the vocal minority. Ocala tried to bring in the New York Yankees winter training. For the privilege of having them here and bringing in the mystical new jobs and growth the citizens were going to have to come up with a mere $80 million in new taxes. The vocal minority expressed concerns and questioned the validity of the project, which the Yankees felt created a hostile environment to the plan and withdrew the idea. The Chroniclefolks used this opportunity to express concern that our vocal minority might derail the medical corridor and port projects. My first question is, what is a vocal minority? There are citizens that express concerns about various projects. What makes the Chroniclethink they are a minority? Have we as citizens had an opportunity to vote on any of the proposals? Yes, we do elect representatives, but that does not mean they do as we want. In many cases these elected officials like in the last commission race did not win with a 51 percent vote, but a simple majority of three candidates. Hopefully the Chronicleis not advocating that we illinformed citizens just keep our opinions to ourselves and trust our elected officials to do the right thing. I dont have room in this letter to go over the many missteps that have occurred in local, state and federal government by our fine, trustworthy elected officials. In my humble opinion every citizen has a right and responsibility to question the actions of our elected officials when they have concerns. I also believe it is the responsibility of our elected officials to provide citizens with the information they require. Regarding the two projects that the Chroniclebrought up, I have a few comments to offer. Lets start with the port idea. Was there any public display of preplanning? No. Does the county own any property in the port area? No. Did the county even realize before starting this project that a feasibility study had already been done that rejected the idea? No. Should the citizens have questions? Yes. The next idea that surfaced out of the blue was the medical corridor. Was there a detailed public plan outlining the project objectives and costs offered to the citizens before starting this project? No. Many citizens are still confused since 491 is already filling up with medical buildings without the medical corridor designation. An attorney from Tampa comes up with an idea at a meeting, the board jumps on the concept, agrees to pay a very large sum of money to the attorney without going out for Request for Proposals (RFP) and the project moves forward. Should the citizens have concerns? Yes. So, my advice to the Chronicleeditorial board, not that they would ever take advice from what they call the vocal minority, is to stand up for those who question government actions. Those of us who do so are exercising our duty as citizens of this country. I would suggest that instead of calling us a vocal minority you might want to change that to vocal concerned citizens.Roger B. Krieger Beverly HillsThanks for bellsI would like to thank the First United Methodist Church on Bradshaw Street for playing the church bells in the morning.

Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obamas new declaration that hes open to legalizing many immigrants short of citizenship sounds a lot like House Speaker John Boehner and other GOP leaders, an election-year compromise that numerous Republicans as well as Democrats crave. But the drive for the first overhaul in three decades still faces major resistance from many Republicans who are wary that the divisive issue could derail what they see as a smooth glide path to winning Novembers congressional elections. And they deeply distrust the Democratic president to enforce the law. Just hours after Boehner pitched immigration to the GOP at a Maryland retreat, Obama suddenly indicated he would be open to legal status for many of the 11 million living here illegally, dropping his once-ironclad insistence on a special path to citizenship. Democrats, including Obama, and other immigration proponents have warned repeatedly about the creation of a two-tier class system. If the speaker proposes something that says right away, folks arent being deported, families arent being separated, were able to attract top young students to provide the skills or start businesses here, and then theres a regular process of citizenship, Im not sure how wide the divide ends up being, Obama said in a CNN interview that was recorded Thursday and aired Friday. Obamas flexibility is a clear indication of the presidents desire to secure an elusive legislative achievement before voters decide whether to hand him even more opposition in Congress. Republicans are expected to maintain their grip on the House and have a reasonable shot at grabbing the majority in the Senate. Im going to do everything I can in the coming months to see if we can get this over the finish line, Obama said Friday of an immigration overhaul in a Google Plus Hangout talk. In an earlier compromise, Obama signaled late last year that he could accept the Houses piecemeal, bill-by-bill approach to immigration changes after months of backing a comprehensive, bipartisan Senate bill. Notably, he calibrated his comments on immigration in his State of the Union address this week. I think he realizes that this is a very delicate issue, its very controversial and I think his recent statements have been very, very positive in allowing us to move forward, Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, RFla., a proponent of immigration overhaul, told reporters Friday. Boehner, for his part, tried to sell his reluctant broader caucus on tackling immigration this year by casting it as critical to job creation, economic growth and national security. The speaker, along with Reps. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Jeff Denham, R-Calif., argued for action in a closed-door session with other House Republicans Thursday at their annual retreat in Cambridge, Md. Boehner rejected the idea of a special path to citizenship. If Democrats insist on that, then we are not going to get anywhere this year, he said. The House leaders standards for immigration reform call for increased border security, better law enforcement within the U.S., a pathway to legal status but not citizenship for millions of adults who live in America unlawfully after they pay back taxes and fines and a chance for legal residence and citizenship for children brought to the country illegally. But several Republicans questioned the strategy of pushing a contentious issue that divides the caucus and angers conservative GOP voters especially since the party has been capitalizing on Obamas abysmal approval ratings and on Democrats troubles in defending the national health care overhaul. Any doubts about the Republicans election-year prospects were erased with news this week of the planned retirement of Rep. Henry Waxman, a 20-term lawmaker who would have become chairman of a House committee if Democrats could win back the chamber. Why in the world would we want to change the subject to comprehensive immigration reform, said Rep. John Fleming, RLa., who called it a suicide mission for the GOP Aside from election hopes and concerns, some of the deep-seated opposition on immigration stems from Obamas willingness in the past year to waive or suspend parts of his health care law and his pronouncement in his State of the Union speech that he would bypass Congress on some issues. The business community, advocacy groups and other proponents are optimistic about House action this year, with many in the GOP arguing that it was imperative to eliminate a major political drag on the party ahead of the next presidential election. Retrial Associated PressAmanda Knox said Friday she will fight the reinstated guilty verdict against her and an ex-boyfriend in the 2007 slaying of a British roommate in Italy and vowed to never go willingly to face her fate in that countrys judicial system. Knox: Ill fight extraditionWASHINGTON Roman Polanski. Edward Snowden. Manuel Noriega. Over the years, the famous and the infamous have been caught up in the legal process called extradition, which governs whether one country will turn over fugitives from justice to another country. It may ultimately be the turn of Amanda Knox, whose murder conviction in the stabbing of her roommate has been reinstated by an Italian court, raising the specter of a long extradition fight. She said shell never willingly go back to Italy. The Knox case is special because it raises the question of whether the U.S. government would send one of its own citizens to a foreign country to face a long prison term. The answer: Its been done before, though in less high-profile cases involving the governments of Canada, Mexico and other nations. The U.S. has extradition treaties with more than 100 countries, including Italy, providing what would appear to be a strong legal foundation in favor of a request for Knoxs return to Italy.Detroits debt plan complicatedDETROIT A proposed plan to restructure Detroits debt calls for retirees and pensioners to receive $4.3 billion in payments and bondholders about $1.1 billion over the next 40 years, leaving the bankrupt city with a surplus of nearly $336 million. The figures were obtained Friday by The Associated Press along with state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orrs 99page plan of adjustment to Detroit creditors.Pipeline clears big hurdleWASHINGTON The long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline cleared a major hurdle toward approval Friday, a serious blow to environmentalists hopes that President Barack Obama will block the controversial project running more than 1,000 miles from Canada through the heart of the U.S. The State Department reported no major environmental objections to the proposed $7billion pipeline, which has become a symbol of the political debate about climate change. Republicans and some oiland gas-producing states in the U.S. as well as Canadas minister of natural resources cheered the report, but it further rankled environmentalists already at odds with Obama and his energy policy. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A10SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Tortured Associated PressIn this frame grab provided by 5 Channel, a bloody Dmytro Bulatov speaks to press Friday after he was found near Kiev, Ukraine. Activists story fuels fearsKIEV, Ukraine The bloody images of Ukrainian opposition supporter Dmytro Bulatov, who said he was abducted and tortured for more than a week, have fueled fears among anti-government activists that extrajudicial squads are being deployed to intimidate the protest movement. Bulatov said his unidentified kidnappers beat him, sliced off part of his ear and nailed him to a door during his time in captivity. The government has faced two months of major protests that started after President Victor Yanukovych backed out of an agreement to deepen ties with the European Union in favor of Russia. The demonstrations quickly grew into discontent over heavy-handed police, corruption and human rights violations. Some opposition leaders believe the government will do anything to save itself, including sending brutal squads of torturers to quash the demonstrations.Airstrikes kill 13 Sinai militantsEL-ARISH, Egypt Egyptian military aircraft pounded suspected positions of al-Qaida-inspired fighters in the Sinai Peninsula, killing 13 people, officials said Friday, as fears rise over an increasingly well-armed insurgency that is striking with increasing regularity in the capital. In the latest attack, bombs on a highway on Cairos outskirts hit a police truck. At the same time, protests by Islamist supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi brought further violence, with clashes in several provinces.Peace talks adjourn for SyriaGENEVA A tumultuous week of peace talks aimed at stemming Syrias bloodbath ended Friday with no progress to show and a lingering standoff over President Bashar Assads future. Assads delegation refused to commit to return to Geneva for the next round of talks in 10 days as the U.N. mediator had proposed and the opposition chief accused the Syrian government of posturing to gain time. U.N. mediator Lakhdar Brahimi struggled to find positive words as the first face-to-face talks between the warring sides concluded. More than 130,000 people have been killed since March 2011 in a conflict that has destabilized neighboring countries and forced millions of people from their homes. Activists said Friday that 1,900 people including at least 430 civilians were killed in Syria during the peace talks alone. The rebellion against Assads rule has been sapped by deadly infighting among moderates, Islamic groups and al-Qaidainspired militants competing for control of territory, weapons and influence. World BRIEFS From wire reports Suspect in Utah deputys killing was fugitive Associated PressSPANISH FORK, Utah A fugitive suspected of killing one Utah deputy and wounding another died Friday from injuries suffered a day earlier, when he was shot by law officers during a gunfight. Jose Angel GarciaJuareguis death means authorities might never know his motive for shooting the deputies and hijacking a car on Thursday, leading police on a crime spree that covered 50 miles in Utah and Juab counties, Utah County Sheriff Jim Tracy said. However, Tracy acknowledged it might have had to do with the fact that an arrest warrant was issued for GarciaJuaregui on Wed nesday for alleged violations of his parole conditions. Garcia-Juaregui served 4 1/2 years in prison for attempted homicide. He was paroled from Utah state prison in December 2012. The crime spree began when Utah County Sheriffs Sgt. Cory Wride, 44, pulled over on a rural twolane highway about 35 miles south of Salt Lake City to check on a truck with its emergency lights on. Wride spoke with GarciaJuaregui and a teenage girl who was with him in the truck before returning to his patrol car. The deputy was sitting behind the wheel doing background checks on the two when Garcia-Juaregui slipped open the trucks back window and opened fire with a handgun, hitting the deputy twice, Tracy said. As Garcia-Juaregui took off from the scene, an urgent alert went out instructing officers to head to strategic spots around the county in hopes of spotting the suspects truck. About an hour later, a Utah County deputy spotted it near Santaquin, more than 30 miles south of the first shooting. Garcia-Juaregui fired at that deputy from the same back window, hitting him in the head, authorities said. That deputy is in critical condition but he is expected to recover.

No. 3 Florida stands tall in short turnarounds Associated PressGAINESVILLE No. 3 Florida knows how to handle tight turnarounds. The Gators are 8-1 in Saturday games following Thursday night tilts, including four straight wins. Coach Billy Donovans team will try to make it five in a row today against Texas A&M (12-8, 3-4 Southeastern Conference). Florida (18-2, 7-0) has won 12 in a row and 17 of 18. The latest win came Thursday at Mississippi State. The Gators briefly trailed in the second half before pulling away. The 62-51 victory marked the 12th time this season Florida has held an opponent to 60 points or fewer. Defense has been a big key to the teams success in short-rest situations. The Gators have allowed an average of 54 points in their last four Saturday games following Thursday wins. The one thing youve got to be able to do when youve got that quick turnaround, from a scouting perspective and coaching perspective, youve got to get to the meat and potatoes of what is really, really important and what we have to do to win the game, Donovan said. Florida is 18-1 in weeks that include Thursday-Saturday games, See GATORS/ Page B3 See GRIP/ Page B3

RISAK CorrespondentA lot of coaches share the same simple philosophy regarding shooting as Crystal River girls basketball coach Jason Rodgers: Basically, its relax, shoot and have fun. Megan Wells, a senior cocaptain with the Pirates, has seemingly embraced that theory at least if recent performances are any indication. Wells lit up Seven Rivers Christian for 18 points in a two-point loss in the final regular-season game, then followed that with a 19-point performance in an opening-round District 5A-6 tournament victory over Dunnellon on Tuesday. In the district final against Citrus, she totaled 16 points. Although both were solid performances, Rodgers pointed out what he believed to be a significant difference. Megan was really on fire tonight, he said after Wells torching of Dunnellon. But tonight was different. Against Seven Rivers, she took a lot of shots, and not all of them were good. Tonight she got good looks at the basket, and she shot 5-of-8 from three-point range. Thats great. That kind of long-range shooting accuracy would be welcome at any level of basketball. Its also better than she had been performing through most of the season. Wells is averaging 8.6 points a game, and through the first 18 games she converted a team-best 22-of-79 from three-point range, or 27.8 percent. Against Dunnellon, she connected on 62.5 percent of her triples. Wells has more threes than anyone else on the team, and it has proven to be an integral part of the offense. The Pirates are not an overly big team, but if they can get opponents to venture outside to pressure Wells and teammate Kiersten Croyle, it opens things up inside for Jasmyne Eason, Cassidy Wardlow and Kaylan Simms. Wells offensive role was magnified further when Brianna Richardson, a significant threepoint threat off the bench for Crystal River, had to leave the team following the regular-season finale at Seven Rivers when her family moved to Orlando. But in keeping with her coachs advice, Wells isnt overly concerned. Ive had a few good shooting games, she said Tuesday. Its a matter of getting in a good shooting rhythm. Were playing more as a team (this year). Tonight we showed it, we were clicking on all cylinders. We want to draw them out and get it to our inside players. Wells takes her basketball seriously, which is an attitude Rodgers appreciates but still wants to tone down a bit. When the high school season concludes, shell take a few weeks off before joining her travel team, the Citrus Wildcats, which is coached by her dad. I play travel ball from the end of February until July, she said. Which is great, according to Rodgers, as long as it doesnt clash with one of the top tenets on his list. I tell them to just take good shots and dont worry, he said. Just shoot the ball, have fun and relax. Of course, its easier to relax and enjoy when the shots are falling. But her offensive prowess isnt where Wells believes shes improved the most. Im hustling a lot more, she said. This is my last year. Her other statistics would attest to that improvement. Wells is also averaging 4 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2 steals a game. Her defense is a significant part of what has made Crystal River a 20-win team this season the Pirates overall defense ignites the offense. And as Wells said, at present the offense is clicking on all cylinders. Crystal River senior guard Wells shooting stroke could be key in state playoffs MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleMegan Wells of Crystal River, right, attempts to drive past Ami Culi of Seven Rivers during a game Jan. 24 at Seven Rivers Christian School. Wells has averaged more than 17 points per contest in the Pirates last three games. Picking up her game US in hole vs. Brits Ward stuns Querrey to give England 2-0 lead Associated PressSAN DIEGO James Ward won 10 of the last 11 games to take a stunning five-set victory against Sam Querrey and give Britain a 2-0 lead against the United States in the first round of the Davis Cup on Friday at Petco Park. Ward was two games from losing the match when he began his rally that gave him a 1-6, 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-4, 6-1 victory. With dusk approaching and the lights on at the downtown baseball park, Ward won the match with an overhand smash that brought his teammates to their feet in celebration. Wards victory in 3 hours, 11 minutes, followed Wimbledon champion Andy Murrays easy straight-set victory against Donald Young on the temporary red clay court in left field at the home of the San Diego Padres. Britain can clinch the match on Saturday if it wins the doubles match. Murray and Colin Fleming are scheduled to face Bob and Mike Bryan. Querrey, the United States No. 1 singles player in this tournament, had a 4-2 lead in the fourth set after winning the sixth game at love. But Ward rallied to win the next four games and the set to force a deciding fifth set. He jumped to a 4-0 lead in the fifth set before Querrey broke serve with a bleeder over the net to pull to 4-1. Ward then closed out the match. Murray overwhelmed Young in 1:38 in the opener of the World Group match. Murray was barely challenged by Young. The twotime Grand Slam winner took leads of 5-0 in the first set and 5-1 in the second set. Young never broke serve but took the sixth game of the third set to four deuces before the British star had an ace and then won when Young netted a backhand. Associated PressSYRACUSE, N.Y. Students have been camped at Boeheimburg outside the Carrier Dome for nearly two weeks in bitter cold, with a few fans having paid for their Syracuse season tickets by making the shrewd financial decision to sell their seats for home game No. 13. The head coach simply shrugs. Ive coached 1,000 games. Thats too many games to get excited about one game, said Jim Boeheim, head coach of the unbeaten No. 2 Orange. Its a 31-game regular season and every game is important, every game counts the same, and you have to approach it that way. Maybe for the coaches, but not the fans. This upstate New York city is abuzz as it awaits the arrival of No. 17 Duke the new Georgetown on the Syracuse schedule. Yes, the Carrier Dome will be overflowing tonight on the eve of the Super Bowl, and this key Atlantic Coast Conference game is a big deal. It will feature two Hall of Fame coaches and two good friends who have twice won Olympic gold together as colleagues with a combined 1,914 wins: Dukes Mike Krzyzewski (974) and Boeheim (940), the top two alltime in Division I. Theyre also the only coaches in history to win more than 900 games at one school, with the 69year-old Boeheim ahead in that category at 940 in 38 years at his alma mater and Krzyzewski at 901 in 34 years at Duke. When Syracuse faced Connecticut in the 2012 Big East quarterfinals, Boeheim and former Huskies coach Jim Calhoun had a combined 1,760 wins. It will be a historic game, Krzyzewski, soon to be 67, said. The fact that Jim and I, total, have won over 1,900 games, its never been done. He and I talked about it this summer because we worked together the past 10 years with USA Basketball, that every time we go on the court, it will be something special. Despite those imposing numbers, the two coaches have squared off against one another just twice, and each has one victory. Duke won the last meeting, 80-67, in the 1998 NCAA tournaments South Regional, and Syracuse won the first, 78-76, in the 1989 ACC-Big East Challenge in Greensboro, N.C. With Syracuse in the ACC now, the teams will double that total this season in a three-week span when the Orange visit Cameron Indoor Stadium later this month. Associated PressSyracuse head coach Jim Boeheim directs his team against Wake Forest during the first half Wednesday in Winston-Salem, N.C.
LHS went 3-1 in Sumter County, defeating The Villages (42-41), losing via a tiebreaker to Tampa Prep and narrowly easing past Ocala-Trinity Catholic. Following pool play, LHS was expected to compete against StarkeBradford, but the Tornadoes bolted for home, suffering a forfeit loss. In individual action, senior Chris Ewing at 182 and Cody Simmons at 220 both wrestled for a first-place medal in their weight classes. Ewing (4-0) stuck Crystal Rivers Eddie Bennis while Simmons (3-1) fell in his last match to settle for second. Entering Spring Hill, Ewing leads the Panthers in wins (27) and pins (17) Sixth-year Panthers mentor Scot Roberts was encouraged by the LHS performance, particularly after Austin Hartman, Nicolai Kortendick, Alex Strube, Timothy Cyr and Bryce Hickey all won two matches. As far the Panthers in 2A-5, (Chris) Ewing should be one or two (seed), but thats about it, Roberts described.I would consider it successful if we get eight guys to the regional next week.It looks like there will be a couple weight classes with only four guys. On where the Panthers are approaching todays meet, We had our best tournament as a team last week, Roberts said.Hopefully we will wrestle our best matches now that it matters the most.Taylor, Bearden form solid 1-2 punch for HurricanesCitrus is expecting to enter Spring Hill with a 12 or 13 man lineup. Injuries at 113 pounds and 120 may negate two competitors from those two weight divisions. Seven Hurricane starters are expected to return from last years 2A-7 meet including: Victor Segarra at 126, Devon Carmack at 132, Tarique Cabanas at 145, Brandon Taylor at 160, Casey Bearden at 170, Austin Renaud at 182 and Bradley Wiesenauer at 195. Last winter, CHS had a nightmarish tourney capturing nine of 30 bouts (30 percent), with no district champions to slip to fourth overall. Both Taylor and Bearden finished as district runners-up. A year later, Taylor leads all Citrus County grapplers in victories (49) followed by Bearden (43).Pirates chasing Blue DevilsThe 1A-5 field features: Green Cove Springs-Clay, Crystal River, Dunnellon, Gainesville-Eastside, Interlachen, Citra-North Marion, Palatka, Ocala-Trinity Catholic and host The Villages. Clay is a defending district champion. The Clay County Blue Devils are the three-time defending Class 1A state runners-up. Veteran Crystal River mentor Craig Frederick understands the obstacle course facing his team. We saw Clay at the Gulf Duals. Theyre rock solid and have been that way for years, Frederick noted. For us, it all depends if we can get some help from some of the others and our kids have to perform at their highest level. On the key to a supreme upset, Byes could be very dangerous, Frederick detailed. If any of our kids get byes and then lose, you miss out on points. Frederick believes he could push seven into the finals but insists, Even if we get them in the finals, were trying to get firsts not seconds. Our guys know its a mountain to climb (to beat Clay). To give ourselves a shot at states, it (started last weekend) at The Villages. As long as our kids live up to their seeds, Ill be happy. CRHS is expecting seniors Michael Allan (37-5, 17 pins) at 126 and Carlos Sanabria (36-10, 26 pins) at 220 to earn No. 1 seeds. According to Frederick, with a little help, seniors Nick Hooper (39-7) at 145 and Andrew Bilby (26-7) at 195, along with sophomore Eddie Bennis (37-12) at 182 and juniors Joel Pelton (37-11) at 138 and Michael Ciccione (18-7) at 132 could all reach the tourney finals.SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE On the AIRWAVES TODAYS SPORTS MENS COLLEGE BASKETBALL 11 a.m. (ESPN2) Richmond at Virginia Commonwealth 11 a.m. (ESPNU) Coastal Carolina at Campbell 12 p.m. (CW) Boston College at Notre Dame 12 p.m. (ESPN) Ohio State at Wisconsin 12 p.m. (FSNFL) Georgia Tech at Wake Forest 12:30 p.m. (FS1) Marquette at St. Johns 12:30 p.m. (NBCSPT) George Washington at Dayton 1 p.m. (CBS) Kentucky at Missouri 1 p.m. (ESPN2) North Carolina State at North Carolina 1 p.m. (ESPNU) Toledo at Ohio 1:30 p.m. (MNT) South Carolina at Mississippi 2 p.m. (ESPN) Baylor at Oklahoma State 2:30 p.m. (NBCSPT) George Mason at St. Louis 3 p.m. (ESPN2) Clemson at Florida State 3 p.m. (ESPNU) Evansville at Wichita State 3 p.m. (FS1) Michigan State vs. Georgetown 4 p.m. (MNT, WYKE 104.3 FM) Texas A&M at Florida 4 p.m. (ESPN) Kansas at Texas 4:30 p.m. (NBCSPT) Drexel at Towson 5 p.m. (ESPNU) Arkansas at LSU 5 p.m. (SUN) Mississippi State at Vanderbilt 6:30 p.m. (ESPN) Duke at Syracuse 7 p.m. (ESPN2) Wright State at Green Bay 7 p.m. (ESPNU) Colorado State at San Diego State 9 p.m. (ESPN2) Tennessee at Alabama 9 p.m. (ESPNU) Central Florida at Louisville 9 p.m. (NBCSPT) Pennsylvania at Harvard 11 p.m. (ESPN2) St. Marys at BYU 11 p.m. (ESPNU) UC Irvine at Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo 3 a.m. (ESPNU) North Carolina State at North Carolina (Same-day Tape) WOMENS COLLEGE BASKETBALL 3 p.m. (FSNFL) Oklahoma State at Oklahoma NBA 8:30 p.m. (ESPN) Miami Heat at New York Knicks GOLF 1 p.m. (GOLF) PGA Tour: Waste Management Phoenix Open, Third Round 3 p.m. (CBS) PGA Tour: Waste Management Phoenix Open, Third Round 3:30 a.m. (GOLF) European PGA Tour: Omega Dubai Desert Classic, Final Round HOCKEY 1 p.m. (NHL) Washington Capitals at Detroit Red Wings (Taped) 1 p.m. (SUN) Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens 4 p.m. (NHL) Philadelphia Flyers at Los Angeles Kings 6:30 p.m. (NBCSPT) Wisconsin at Michigan 7 p.m. (FSNFL) Florida Panthers at Columbus Blue Jackets 7 p.m. (NHL) Ottawa Senators at Toronto Maple Leafs 10:30 p.m. (NHL) Chicago Blackhawks at San Jose Sharks MOTORCYCLE RACING 10 p.m. (FS1) Monster Energy Supercross: Anaheim FIGURE SKATING 4:30 p.m. (NBC) Four Continents Championships (Taped) SOCCER 7:45 a.m. (NBCSPT) English Premier League: Newcastle United vs. Sunderland 10 a.m. (NBCSPT) English Premier League: Stoke City vs. Manchester United 5 p.m. (ESPN2) Men: United States vs. Korea Republic TENNIS 6 a.m. (TENNIS) WTA Open GDF Suez quarterfinal (Taped) 6:30 p.m. (TENNIS) WTA Open GDF Suez semifinal (Taped) 8:30 p.m. (TENNIS) WTA Open GDF Suez semifinal (Taped) 10:30 p.m. (TENNIS) Davis Cup First Round: Great Britain vs. USA Rubber 3 (Taped) Note: Times and channels are subject to change at the discretion of the network.

That success surely helps in the NCAA tournament, which offers similar turnarounds. Donovan offered little insight into his teams dominance on one days rest, but credited his staff and players for getting properly prepared in a short span. If you cant drill it as hard as you want to because of time, because fatigue doesnt allow it, youve got to have a group of guys that can get through those things with an understanding of what theyre going to have to do and need to do with that situation, Donovan said. Donovans current group is one of his best, especially on the defensive end. The Gators have four seniors in the starting lineup, including the teams best three defenders in center Patric Young, forward Will Yeguete and point guard Scottie Wilbekin. Forward Casey Prather isnt too shabby, either. Together, they have been effective running the full-court press, defending ball screens and rotating to help inside and out. And when shots arent falling, the Gators simply turn to defense to pull out games. That helps a lot, Yeguete said. When you have players that can actually make plays on defense, you can gamble a little more. We got Scottie, who is a really good guard and can get off screens. We have Pat, who is a really good interior defender. That allows us to be comfortable on the floor and on the court, and we play with a little more freedom on defense. Its been working. Hopefully we keep on going. Florida leads the SEC and ranks eighth in the nation in scoring defense, giving up 58.8 points a game. The Gators allowed 54.4 points a game last season, the programs fewest since 1948-49. Although Floridas defensive numbers arent quite as stout this season, new NCAA rules designed to improve scoring have been a contributing factor. Still, the Gators are garnering attention for their D. It was the best defense Ive seen since Ive been a part of Tennessee basketball against any team, Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin said this week, days after the Gators beat the Volunteers 67-41 in Gainesville. That was the back end of a Thursday-Saturday week. And the Gators believe they can play better. They will have more depth when 6-foot-10 freshman forward Chris Walker becomes eligible Tuesday, allowing for more pressing and maybe more aggressive defense and maybe more short-rest success. it wouldnt be easy. Our half-court press did well, they kept it out of 11s (Alexis Zachar) hands. We kept up the pressure, we kept on pushing. We played as a unit, and we were able to push the ball up the court. The Saints pressure caused all sorts of chaos for Seven Rivers. Although the score was knotted at 8-all after one quarter, St. John took control of the game in the second with a defense that forced 10 Warrior turnovers. The Saints outscored Seven Rivers 17-8 in the period, then put up a 14-7 rally in the first five minutes of the third quarter to go up 39-23. Only a nine-point answer by the Warriors, six of them by Zachar, allowed them to narrow the gap to 40-32 entering the fourth. Two Alyssa Gage free throws early in the fourth made it a six-point deficit for Seven Rivers, but St. John scored eight of the next 10 points to regain its 14-point cushion. One final Warrior push narrowed it to 50-44, but only 1:31 remained, and when Zachar fouled out with just 1:16 left, any hope for a final rally was lost. The shots didnt fall for us, especially in the first quarter, Seven Rivers coach Gary Dreyer said. And the other thing is, St. John is a fast team. Im proud of our girls. The girls that we have, some of them are basketball nuts and some arent, but they all work hard. Im proud of the effort they put in. Zachar finished with a game-high 18 points, with Gage adding 17. St. John got 17 from senior Sara Poehlman, with seventh-graders Bell and Bartram adding 14 and 10, respectively. The difference was our overall defense, Pompey said. Defense creates offense, and we have some great shooters and some great penetrators. Were small but powerful. That defense caused Seven Rivers to commit 25 turnovers in the game while allowing them to convert just 6-of-35 first-half floor shots. It didnt get much better for the Warriors in the second half: they hit just 10-of-32 from the field. Theyre high school girls, Dreyer said. Theyre going to have some good days and some not so good days. But this one isnt on their shoulders, its on mine. If youre not prepared properly, then its the coachs fault. They need to hold their heads high. Hurricanes finish regular season with victoryThe Citrus boys basketball concluded its regular season Friday night with a 66-47 home victory over Brooksville Hernando. Hurricanes junior wingman Desmond Franklin scored a team-high 24 points, while teammates Ben Janicki (13 points) and Sam Franklin (10 points) joined him in double figures. Citrus coach Tom Densmore also credited guards Devin Pryor and Zack Saxer with playing excellent defense to contribute to the triumph. The Hurricanes (23-2) play 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Crystal River High School against Lecanto in the District 5A-6 tournament semifinals.

The Magic snapped a threegame losing streak and extended their home winning streak over Milwaukee to 16 games. Orlando led by as many as 25 points and had six players reach double-figures. Nik Vucevic had 12 points and six rebounds in his second game back from a concussion. Caron Butler scored 20 points for Milwaukee, which lost its fifth straight game. The Bucks have lost 14 of their last 15 and eight straight on the road. Milwaukee played without John Henson, who was out with a sprained right wrist. O.J. Mayo missed his third consecutive game with an illness.Grizzlies 94, Timberwolves 90MINNEAPOLIS Zach Randolph had 26 points and 12 rebounds and the Memphis Grizzlies overcame another strong effort by Kevin Love to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 94-90. Courtney Lee added 16 points for the Grizzlies, who have won five straight games and 10 of their last 11. The Grizzlies have won six straight on the road. Playing on a sore left ankle throughout the second half, Love led Minnesota with 28 points and 16 rebounds. Kevin Martin had 14 points for the Timberwolves, who lost for just the second time in seven games.Thunder 120, Nets 95NEW YORK Kevin Durants 30-point streak ended at 12 games when he scored 26 in just 30 minutes, and the Oklahoma City Thunder won their 10th in a row with a 120-95 victory over the Brooklyn Nets. Serge Ibaka made all 12 shots and added 25 points and nine rebounds for the Thunder, who were so good that Durant sat the entire fourth quarter, the only way to slow him down right now. The NBAs leading scorer finished 10 of 12 from the field, though his scoring average during his sensational January dropped from 36.6 to 35.9. Shaun Livingston scored 16 points while drawing the impossible assignment of defending Durant for the Nets.Hawks 125, 76ers 99PHILADELPHIA Mike Scott and Elton Brand scored 18 points apiece to lead seven Hawks in double figures and Atlanta routed the Philadelphia 76ers 125-99. DeMarre Carroll contributed 13, Paul Millsap, Jeff Teague and Lou Williams had 12 apiece, and Kyle Korver added 11 for the Hawks. Thaddeus Young scored 29 points, Michael Carter-Williams added 17 and Elliot Williams had 15 for the Sixers, who have dropped 11 of their last 13 home games, including five straight. After going into the locker room with a 64-52 advantage, the Hawks blitzed the Sixers for 38 points in the third quarter to take a 102-75 lead.Mavericks 107, Kings 103DALLAS Dirk Nowitzki scored 34 points and the Dallas Mavericks held off Sacramento 107-103, handing the Kings their sixth straight loss in another game without leading scorer DeMarcus Cousins. A night after being named an AllStar for the 12th time, Nowitzki helped the Mavericks rally in the fourth quarter after they squandered a doubledigit lead in the first half and fell behind by 14 in the third. Brandan Wright had his first double-double of the season with 10 points and 10 rebounds, including a floater in the lane that put the Mavericks ahead for good at 96-94. Rudy Gay scored 35 to lead the Kings, who have the worst record in the Western Conference (15-31) and were without Cousins. Mickelson makes cut at Phoenix Open Associated PressSCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Phil Mickelson made it to the weekend in the Phoenix Open. Another popular lefthander and a fellow former Arizona State player set the pace. A week after withdrawing from Torrey Pines because of back pain, Mickelson shot a 4-under 67 in his afternoon round Friday at cool and breezy TPC Scottsdale. The defending champion was eight strokes behind leaders Bubba Watson and Matt Jones. Im not totally out of it, Mickelson said. Obviously, heading into the weekend, Id like to be closer, but as we have seen in the past, there is that 8-, 9-, 10-, in some cases 11-under par round out there. Indeed, the three-time champion has shot 11-under 60 twice in the event, in the second round in his 2005 victory and last year in the first round. Watson, the long-hitting left-hander who won the 2012 Masters, followed his opening 64 with a 66 to reach 12 under. Jones, the Australian who played at Arizona State and lives in Scottsdale, had his second straight 65.Dubai Desert ClassicDUBAI, United Arab Emirates Rory McIlroy hit a wedge into 5 feet for birdie on the 18th hole for a 2-under 70 to regain the outright lead in the Dubai Desert Classic. The chief challenge for McIlroy came from an American but it wasnt Tiger Woods. Brooks Koepka, who earned his European Tour card last year by winning three times on the Challenge Tour, made seven birdies against no bogeys for a 65 that left him one shot behind McIlroy going into the weekend. Woods, meanwhile, hit only four fairways and had to rely on some key putts to salvage a 73. He was in a tie for 44th, eight shots out of the lead. McIlroy was at 11-under 133. He appeared to be in control at Emirates Golf Club, leading by three shots after his birdie at No. 10. But he drove wildly into the waste area on the par-5 13th and the par-4 16th holes, both leading to bogeys, before recovering on the 18th.New Zealand Womens OpenCHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand New Zealands Stacey Tate stole the limelight from her Lydia Ko by shooting a 4-under 68 to share the lead with South Koreas Seon Woo Bae after Fridays opening round of the New Zealand Womens Open. Tate led outright after birdies at six of the first seven holes on her back nine, but bogeys at the last two holes brought her back into a tie with Bae in the Ladies European Tour event. Ko returned to New Zealand after finishing seventh at the latest LPGA tour stop in the Bahamas and was among a group of five players on 69, one shot behind the leading pair.European Tour Dubai Desert ClassicFriday, At Emirates Golf Club (Majlis Course), Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Purse: $2.5 million, Yardage: 7,316, Par: 72, Second Round, a-amateur: Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland63-70 133 Brooks Koepka, United States69-65 134 Julien Quesne, France 66-70 136 Damien McGrane, Ireland 66-70 136 Danny Willett, England 71-65 136 Stephen Gallacher, Scotland66-71 137 Jamie Donaldson, Wales 69-68 137 Edoardo Molinari, Italy 65-72 137 Thongchai Jaidee, Thailand 68-69 137 Henrik Stenson, Sweden 70-67 137 Robert Rock, England 67-70 137 Justin Walters, South Africa 69-68 137 Simon Dyson, England 69-69 138 Roope Kakko, Finland 69-69 138 Magnus A.

Colts HOF connections: Dungy, Harrison Former Bucs Brooks and Lynch among finalists Associated PressNEW YORK Anyone looking for an expert to discuss the candidacies of Marvin Harrison and Tony Dungy for the Pro Football Hall of Fame didnt need to search very far during Super Bowl week. Hey, Peyton, what do you think? Marvin Harrison had a tremendous impact on my career, star quarterback Peyton Manning said before getting ready to lead the Denver Broncos into the NFL title game against Seattle. My very first football game in the preseason, on the third play of the game, I threw my first pass. I threw him about a 4-yard pass, and he ran 48 yards for a touchdown. I said, Boy, this NFL is pretty easy. All you do is throw it to Marvin Harrison and he runs for touchdowns. Thats pretty much what he did throughout the time we played together. Harrison did it so well that he made 1,102 catches for 14,580 yards and 128 touchdowns in 13 seasons with the Colts, 11 years with Manning throwing to him. They set a record with 953 completions, 12,766 yards and 112 TDs together. Dungy was Mannings coach for seven seasons, winning a Super Bowl, and just as importantly initiating a franchise philosophy based on honesty, trust and never panicking. Coach Dungys influence on me and our entire team was very strong, Manning said. His calming presence that face that you see on TV when hes giving away all of our plays on the NBC halftime show its that same calm face he always had which was peaceful for our players in a Super Bowl, in a championship game, in the preseason. It made players on his team play calm and play at a high level. Im indebted to him for his help for me in my career, and of course, our teams there in Indianapolis. I was very honored to play for him for a number of years. Harrison and Dungy are among 17 finalists for the hall; the voting will take place today and be announced this evening, along with the AP NFL awards, at the NFL Honors show. They are first-time eligibles, along with Derrick Brooks and Walter Jones. Its an impressive list of new candidates Brooks was perhaps the best outside linebacker of his era with Tampa Bay, and Jones was a practically unbeatable left tackle with Seattle. And it gets added to an equally outstanding group previously up for election: placekicker Morten Andersen; running back Jerome Bettis; wide receivers Tim Brown and Andre Reed; defensive ends Claude Humphrey (a senior nominee), Michael Strahan, Charles Haley and Kevin Greene; punter Ray Guy (senior nominee); safeties John Lynch and Aeneas Williams, who also played cornerback; guard Will Shields; and former 49ers owner Edward DeBartolo Jr. Guy would become the first fulltime punter in the hall, while Andersen, the career scoring leader with 2,544 points in 25 seasons, would join Jan Stenerud as the only placekickers enshrined. Jones and Brooks were regulars on the All-Pro list, with Jones making it four times and Brooks getting selected five times. Each got a Super Bowl, with Brooks getting the ring for the 2002 season and Jones losing with the Seahawks after the 2005 campaign. Anytime you can get that title of first ballot Hall of Famer thats a great title, and just being a Hall of Famer is a great title, Jones said. Would it be a letdown (to not be elected)? Probably will. But I think its still a moment that will be exciting whenever it happens. If it happens this year it will be exciting, if it happens two years from now it will be exciting. For me to be on that list is amazing and to be on that list and been able to play with one team is amazing, too. Greene and Haley are in their 10th year of eligibility, the longest among non-senior finalists. Reed is in his ninth, followed by Brown and Williams (fifth), Bettis (fourth), Shields and DeBartolo (third), Anderson, Strahan and Lynch (second).

Harrison and former Colts head coach Tony Dungy are among 17 finalists for the Hall of Fame. The voting will take place today and be announced this evening. Who wins and why? ARNIESTAPLETON AP Pro Football WriterEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Denver was walloped 40-10 by Seattle in the preseason with Ronnie Hillman fumbling, Montee Ball stumbling and Peyton Manning grumbling. The Broncos are a much different team now, one that should return to Colorado on Tuesday for a victory parade clutching their third Lombardi Trophy. Chewed out by boss John Elway after that spectacle in Seattle last summer, the Broncos responded with a season for the ages, scoring more points than any team in NFL history (606) with Manning throwing for more touchdowns (55) and yards (5,447) than anyone ever had. Theyre not always the prettiest of passes, as Seahawks star talker and cornerback Richard Sherman pointed out, but Mannings always won with his brain, not his arm. Manning didnt disagree with Shermans assessment that he throws ducks. I do throw ducks, he said. I throw for a lot of yards and TD ducks, so Im actually quite proud of it. Mannings Duck Dynasty consists of an unprecedented five players who caught 60 or more passes and scored 10 or more touchdowns: Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker, Wes Welker, Julius Thomas and Knowshon Moreno. This could be the difference Sunday night at MetLife Stadium, where the forecast isnt for weather as frigid as so many feared. The Broncos boast enough pickyour-poison talent in their fivereceiver sets to befuddle even the stingiest of secondaries like Seattles. Including the playoffs, Manning has thrown for an astonishing 59 touchdowns this season. I think they had a heck of a season, Sherman said. I dont know if theyre going to score 59 touchdowns in one game. I think that would be a record, too. ... Weve got our own accolades and awards and none of it means anything when you get between those lines. No, what matters is execution and Manning has had his team on a no-nonsense mission for months and hes only ratcheted up his focus and his dogged determination during preparations for the biggest game of his stellar career. Manning is the only player in this game whos won a Super Bowl, and his top target Sunday could even be Jacob Tamme or Bubba Caldwell. He doesnt discriminate, he distributes. He doesnt often get duped. He deciphers. He doesnt force passes, he finds the best matchup. And hes got time to do it because the Broncos added size and strength to the middle of their line with the addition of right guard Louis Vasquez (6-5, 335 pounds), which moved Manny Ramirez (6-3, 320) to center next to left guard Zane Beadles (6-4, 305). They gave Manning the room to step into all those throws and hes also quick enough in his recognition and release to usually avoid the edge rushers who might get past tackles Chris Clark or Orlando Franklin. The lines also opened enough holes for Knowshon Moreno to capitalize on soft underneath coverages to amass 1,761 yards from scrimmage, rendering Ball a fresh-legged cohort and Hillman an afterthought. Even though star left tackle Ryan Clady was lost for the season with a foot injury in September, Mannings jersey hardly needed the laundry as he was sacked an average of just 1.11 times a game, the lowest takedown rate of any quarterback who started all of his teams games. Even when they stall they dont usually have to call upon Britton Colquitt, whos punted just once in the last month, because the Broncos have the strongest, most accurate long-range kicker in football, Matt Prater, who kicked a record 64-yarder in icy conditions in Denver last month. Praters 170 points have helped Mannings prolific offense make up for a defense that lost Von Miller and four other starters but came together down the stretch behind backups and Elways free agent jackpot of Terrance Knighton, Dominique RodgersCromartie, Shaun Phillips, Paris Lenon and Jeremy Mincey. PREDICTION: Broncos 27, Seahawks 23 TIMBOOTH AP Sports WriterEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. In the midst of being reclusive for most of the week leading up to his first Super Bowl, Marshawn Lynch spoke a truth about his Seattle Seahawks. What they might lack with a roster void of Super Bowl experience, they make up for with an attitude and approach that Pete Carroll has instilled from the moment he landed in Seattle. I stay ready, Lynch said. So there aint no getting ready. If there is an overbearing quality Carroll has produced in his four seasons in charge of the Seahawks, its a continuous trend of always being competitive. They dont get blown out. They dont get overwhelmed. They dont succumb in the moment. They treat each week as an individual, singular event. The Seahawks are trained to operate in this manner and its why even against Peyton Manning, even against the most prolific, passhappy offense in NFL history, Carrolls team will not be astounded by what they walk into Sunday night at MetLife Stadium. You dont see nervousness in guys eyes, Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman said. You dont see guys acting any different than they would on any other day or any other week of the season. Theyre going out there and following the same routine as they have all season long. Seattles been on this stage once before, eight years ago with a completely different style of team that was unable to match the physicality of Pittsburgh. Thing is, this version of the Seahawks look awfully familiar to that Steelers team. Ben Roethlisberger was in his second season as the Steelers quarterback, just like Russell Wilson is with Seattle. Roethlisberger was less of a passer at that time because the Steelers had a running game led by Willie Parker and Jerome Bettis that was in the top five in the NFL during the regular season. The Steelers also had a defense that was No. 4 in the league during the regular season. It might be a painful comparison for Seattle fans, but the similarities are notable. Wilson can win the game with his arm if needed but Lynch and the running game is always Seattles priority. The Seahawks defense was the best in the NFL in scoring, total yards allowed and turnovers forced. They are unlike anything Manning and the Broncos have seen this season. Denver faced only two teams all season with total defenses that finished ranked in the top 10 when the regular season concluded. This is something that weve been looking forward to. Us being the No. 1 defense, them being the No. 1 offense, I think its fitting, Seattle linebacker Bobby Wagner said. Its our time to prove why were the No. 1 defense. Also not to be overlooked is a Seattle red zone defense that was the best in the NFL. Its inevitable that Manning will move Denvers offense. Hes one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history because hes been able to find quick solutions to problems defenses present. But those drives that he converted into 55 touchdown passes during the regular season will be far more difficult to achieve against the Seahawks. The Seahawks allowed 36 red zone drives during the regular season and touchdowns on only 13 of those possessions. The 132 red-zone points allowed by Seattle is the fewest by any team since 2006. That is where this game will be won. The Denver defense Wilson and Lynch will face is not on the same scale as the problems San Francisco posed in the NFC championship game and thats without mentioning the availability of Percy Harvin and what that could add to Seattles offense. Meanwhile its unrealistic to think Seattle will be able to stop Manning. Thinking otherwise is foolish. But while Manning will be able to lead some drives, Seattles defense inside the 20 is suffocating. They will force Denver to settle for field goals. Ultimately, the strength of the Seahawks is greater than the strength of the Broncos. PREDICTION: Seahawks 27, Broncos 22 Pick your poison against the Broncos Seahawks win with defense, run game

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, FEBRUARY 1, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE irst of all, Jews have always adopted ideas and folkways from the cultures they have lived amongst. Many of these ideas have been incorporated into Judaism, but with a Jewish spin. Cupid, as it turns out, is one of these myths that found its way into Jewish culture. According to myth, Cupid (Eros in the Greek) was the son of the goddess Venus (Aphrodite in the Greek) and god Mercury (Hermes). He is often portrayed as a winged infant carrying a quiver with bow and arrows. He is considered the god of love and he unites couples by shooting arrows in their hearts to cause the victims to fall in love. Thus, his impish nature on many valentine cards. Since 1969 when the Catholic Church declared that Feb. 14 was no longer a saints day and worthy of veneration, the day has taken on a more secular nature and has become a special day to honor lovers and romance. In Rome, Cupid appears on sarcophagi, in paintings in Jewish catacombs and above the door to a synagogue in Capernaum in Israel, six of them to be exact. What is the significance of this erotic symbol of love doing on items associated with Jewish living during Greco-Roman times? Cupids are often depicted with holding a wine cup or with Dionysus, the god of wine. The symbolism there is that one is to be drunk with love. As similar theme resonates from the Song of Songs recited on Shabbat by followers of the Jewish Chassidic tradition: I am faint with love. Eat, friends, drink and be drunk with love. Love is a necessity of life. It releases us from isolation and makes us feel wanted and needed. The Greek philosophers believed this and this idea is found in the Talmud to live in isolation is to live without joy, without blessing, without happiness. And in Genesis, God muses that it is not good for man to be alone and so creates Eve to be a helpmate for Adam the first man. Rabbi Shimon ben Gamliel comments that when God created the first person, the creature had two faces, male and female and the Lord separated them and they became two separate beings. These examples show how Jewish thoughts perceived human beings as being dependent on each other Some time last year, I came back from a week off to a full voicemail box. One of my least favorite things in life is talking on the phone. First, I have trouble hearing, so if, for example, you were to call me and say, My daughter needs a kidney transplant, I might hear, My dog lives in Sydney as a tramp. The conversation would generally deteriorate from there, and I would end up looking like an idiot, which I try to avoid at all cost. Second, I dont like answering the phone here at work because I never know who I mightve offended with a story Ive written, and the chance of hearing someone ask, Do you have dog food for brains? first thing in the morning is often a real possibility and not a fun one at that. So, it was with extreme angst that I retrieved my messages, including two from Paul, the egg man. Not that I have a problem with eggs, but his message said, You recently wrote about repentance and I want to talk to you about it.Oy,I thought. This could be bad. I mean, I have much to repent over. Maybe Paul, the egg man, had caught me doing something I ought not be doing. So, with fear and trembling I called Paul, the egg man, who proceeded to tell me a story: There was this guy who was hired to paint the church. He got halfway done and realized he was about to run out of paint, so he added some paint thinner. He got to the steeple and was still running out of paint, so he added more. When he finished, he looked at his work and said, That looks awful. All of a sudden he heard a voice from heaven thundering, Repaint and thin no more! Thats all Paul, the egg man, wanted to tell me, and I laughed with relief and delight.Whew. When someone begins a conversation with the word repent, whats your first thought? If youre like me (and I know you are), your stomach knots and your face feels hot. You feel trapped and pray for the ground to open up and swallow you better, that it would swallow the person using the R-word. Nobody likes the word repent, except those who understand it to be a blessing and a gift. Through the prophet Isaiah, God RELIGION BRIEFS Christian artist explains Grammy absence NASHVILLE, Tenn. Christian singer Mandisa says she was at home watching Sundays Grammy Awards ceremony online when her song Overcomer was named the best contemporary Christian music song. Minutes later, her album of the same name won the Grammy for best contemporary Christian music album. Mandisa explained that she was at home alone allowing the Lord to speak to her and protect her from being either proud of winning or self-conscious about gaining back some of the weight she had lost. As a Christian, Mandisa said she also had found some parts of past Grammy Awards ceremonies she attended uncomfortable to watch. She says the song Overcomer applies to her, not as a personal achievement, but rather a recognition that Christ in her has overcome the world. On her blog, Mandisa says, I lay this trophy at the feet of my Jesus in humility, honor and gratitude for all He has done in, to, and through me. Kansas mulls same-sex wedding response TOPEKA, Kan. Gay-marriage opponents are urging Kansas legislators to approve new legal protections for bakeries, photographers and others who refuse for religious reasons to supply goods or services for same-sex weddings, anticipating that federal courts could soon strike down the states ban on such unions. But gay-rights advocates said the bill backed by social conservatives and the Kansas Catholic Conference would permit individuals, businesses and groups to discriminate against gays and lesbians and encourage government officials to ignore court rulings favoring gay marriage. Federal judges in Oklahoma and Utah recently struck down bans in those states, which are under the jurisdiction of the same federal appeals court as Kansas. Under the bill, no individual, business or religious group with sincerely held religious beliefs could be required by any governmental entity to provide services, facilities, goods, employment or employment benefits related to any same-sex marriage or domestic partnership. The measure prohibits anti-discrimination lawsuits on such grounds. Jimmy Carter to pen book on womens rights NEW YORK Jimmy Carters next book will be a defense of womens rights and an attack against those who use religion to deny them. Simon & Shuster announced Tuesday that the former presidents A Call To Action: Women, Religion, Violence, and Power will be published March 25. The publisher says Carter will draw upon personal observations from his worldwide travels as he condemns abuses of women and girls and the alleged distortions of religious texts cited as justification. Southern Baptists to talk about sex NASHVILLE, Tenn. Southern Baptist Convention leaders are hosting a summit in Nashville that will focus on sex. The topics will range from pornography, teen sex and homosexuality to how pastors can talk to their congregations about human sexuality. The Rev. Russell Moore, Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission president for the Southern Baptist Convention, says the summits theme is a timely one. Panel topics include discussions on the gospel and homosexuality and the gospel and ministry in a sex-saturated world. The sessions will also focus on how the gospel shapes a persons sexual identity, redeems sexual desire and sets free people held captive by sin. The summit will be held from April 21-23.

I am addicted to scented candles; I am positively a softie for Beanie Babies and I rue the fact that I only have one neck because I absolutely crave costume jewelry necklaces. At this time of the year, my romantic side takes over and I am intrigued with all the delightful Valentine items: teddy bears bearing chocolates, heart-themed towels, cupcake shaped candles and the ubiquitous cupid appearing on cards, T-shirts and pillows. Speaking of Cupid, I got to thinking if there is a Jewish connection there. After doing some research, I made some very interesting discoveries. From wire reports

Since February is considered love and marriage, Pastor Ray Kelley of First Christian Church Inverness has planned a special three-part sermon series for Sundays, Feb. 9, 16, and 23. These sermons are designed to guide couples through their relationship, no matter the length of their marriage, and help them develop the type of relationship that God intends for us to have in our marriages. Sermon content will also address personal relationships, not just marital. The first sermon on Feb. 9 is titled Searching for Love; the second on Feb. 16 is Gods Plan for Marriage; and the last on Feb. 23 is Making Our Marriage Work. The middle sermon on Feb. 16 will provide a special opportunity for married couples. Pastor Ray and Shirley Kelleys son, Dr. James W. Kelley of Asheboro, N.C., will conduct a marriage ceremony that will give couples the opportunity to renew told/tells his people, In repentance and rest is your salvation; in quietness and trust is your strength (Isaiah 30:15). Another translation says, Your salvation requires you to turn back to me and stop your silly efforts to save yourselves. Your strength will come from settling down in complete dependence on me the very thing youve been unwilling to do (The Message). When you think of the word repent, maybe you picture a scowling preacher waving a Bible and pointing an accusing finger. But thats not the picture of God who says, Repent. That would be the God who sought out Adam and Eve after they sinned in the Garden of Eden, who did not destroy them but instead covered their shame with garments of sacrifice. That would be Jesus, who, when faced with a woman caught in adultery whom the religious leaders, pointing their fingers, demanded that she be stoned to death, instead told her, I do not condemn you; go, and sin no more (John 8:11, my paraphrase). That would also be the Savior uttering his final words before dying on the cross, It is finished. True repentance doesnt come by shaming or by force. Neither does it come by trying. Instead, it comes by resting, resting in what Christ has already done, resting in his perfect life, resting in his perfect death, resting in his perfect sacrifice for sin, yours and mine. When we see that, our hearts are stirred toward repentance, a grateful response to Gods mercy for sinful humanity. True repentance should lead to relief, not condemnation, and a joyful eagerness to turn from sin. It comes from knowing we are at the same time deeply flawed yet dearly loved. So, dear friends, beloved of the Lord, let us repaint and thin no more!

Love was the binding force that enabled us to create families, societies and civilizations for now we needed each other for support and companionship. Many love songs recount the saying of the ancient Greeks: love makes the world go round. It was love that made life meaningful and without it we would feel remorse and sadness. In Judaism, it is believed that without this impetus for love, no one would build a house, wed, have children or engage in a trade. The hallmark statement of faith, The Shema, Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One also has an interesting take on the theme of love. In Gematria, the system that assigns numerical values to words, the word echad or one has the same numerical value, 13, as the word ahava, love. Thus we can translate The Shema as: Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is Love. Thus the concept of God is love is central to Jewish belief. So this Valentines Day, buy your sweetie something special and spread the love around. Give him/her a big kiss and remember that the upper part of a womans lips is called cupids bow!Judi Siegal is a retired teacher and Jewish educator. She lives in Ocala with her husband, Phil.

Kids at Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County know very well their hard work, conscientiousness and diligence, combined with the support of their parents and encouragement from caring teachers, plus help from club staff and volunteers, result in good grades. At the three club sites of Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County, it all comes together in Project Learn. Project Learn happens Mondays through Thursdays at the clubs. Fridays are usually days without homework and with more playtime. With Project Learn, kids come in from school, have a healthy snack and sit down to do their school assignments with help from club staff and volunteers. If needed, children use the computer labs for research or to publish work. Grades are reviewed at the end of each term so we can keep a careful eye on things and not miss a child who needs extra help. In this terms review, 75 percent or our kids maintained or improved their reading grades. In math, 78 percent maintained or improved their grades. We also found some real victories with grades in both math and reading improved from Ds to Bs. So we celebrate the accomplishments of our kids and their parents. We are really proud and pleased when our members learn that hard work pays dividends and we hope they discover that school can be a source of success. Of course our long range goals are to have our children graduate and become responsible, productive members of society. Project Learn with kids improving grades and attitudes about school is just one example of how your donations go to work at Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County. The money you give goes directly to Citrus County kids and to their programs. Donations stay in Citrus County, making a difference in the life of a child. Visit one or all of the three clubs to see your money at work during Project Learn or during any of our other valuable programs. Donations are always important to our success and can be made at our website at www.citrusbgc.com or by calling 352-621-9225.Lane Vick is grant coordinator of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County.

Bentlys in Dunnellon to have fundraiser What are tapas? Tapas have received a lot of attention in the past 10 y ears or so and have gained popularity all over the world. Tapas were made famous in the pubs of Spain. Due to limited space, pubs began serving food from the bar. It was a challenge for guests to carry their drinks and eat. To defeat this problem, pub owners made small portions of food and served them on small plates so people could place the plates on top of their drink glass and be able to have a free hand to eat.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY1, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.This week, we have been looking at unusual responses. Now, for a change of pace, lets have an unusual defensive discard. Look at only the North and East hands. South is in three no-trump. West leads the heart two: 10, jack, ace. Declarer then runs six club tricks. What discards should East make? The bidding was interesting. South might have overcalled one no-trump, showing 15-plus to 18-minus points, a balanced hand and at least one heart stopper. It would have given a good description of his hand but would still probably have reached the right contract from the wrong side. Note that three no-trump by North is unbeatable. (Five clubs by North is defeated only if East finds a most unlikely spade lead.) After the two-diamond overcall and threeclub advance, South might have cue-bid three hearts, hoping partner would convert to three no-trump with a heart stopper. But would North have treated queen-10-doubleton as sufficient? Against three no-trump by South, West correctly led his heart two. Lead the lowest from any tripleton when you have not supported partners suit. But if you have supported, lead top of nothing, here the seven. East should realize that if South has the ace and queen of diamonds, the contract is unstoppable. Declarer will take the diamond finesse after running the clubs. So, to speed up play, Easts first discard ought to be the diamond king! If South does not immediately claim, East then pitches two spades and another diamond. Here, West clings to a guarded diamond queen and the contract goes down one.

Weve been together for three years, but the problem is that he says he just wants to be friends. I care about him a lot. I think there may be someone else, but Im not sure. I dont want to lose him from my life. What should I do? Should I tell him how I feel? Should I ask him whether hes seeing another woman? I need answers. Dee Dear Dee: When a man tells you he just wants to be friends, please believe him. He is no longer interested in you romantically. Whether or not he has someone else is irrelevant. If you want him in your life, it will have to be on his terms as a friend and nothing more. If that is not possible for you, please say goodbye altogether, no matter how difficult. Theres no point moping around when its over. Youll only make yourself more miserable. We recommend hot cocoa with your favorite movie, followed by a luxurious bath and commiserating with good friends. Dear Annie: You have helped perpetuate an erroneous but widely held belief by printing a letter that referred to an ostrich burying its head in the sand. The misconception exists because an ostrich sleeps with its head resting on the ground. Viewed from a distance, the head may appear to be buried, but it most definitely is not. If an ostrich really did bury its head, it would suffocate. La Crescenta, Calif. Dear La Crescenta: Thanks for providing an opportunity to get into an obscure but charming subject. According to the American Ostrich Association, a male ostrich will dig a hole for the nest that can be up to 8 feet wide and 3 feet deep, so that predators cannot see the eggs from a distance. Male and female ostriches take turns sitting on the eggs in that lowered position and blend into the horizon. When the birds periodically turn the eggs over with their beaks, it can appear as if their heads are buried in the sand. Now we know. Dear Annie: This is in response to Joining the Letting Go Club. My father was Mr. Charming. What wasnt seen was the physical, verbal and emotional abuse. He expected to continue the control even after we were grown and then with our children. He worked hard to pit the siblings against each other. It was horrible. I have nothing to do with him. My in-laws are blatantly biased toward my husbands sister. She was involved with drugs, has a criminal record and treats her parents terribly. Yet they think the sun rises and sets on her. They have totally enabled her and given her tons of money. My husband never caused them trouble, paid his own way for college and visits them regularly. They cant seem to bother with him. My husband has gotten to the point where he is done with them. And finally, there is this perspective. We are in our mid-40s with three kids. We have a difficult time understanding todays parenting style, unless it is to copy the way they were raised: the idea that their kids can do no wrong and never need be held accountable, and that kids should only do whatever makes them happy. I actually heard a friend tell her daughters not to worry about anyone elses feelings, and they should care only about their own happiness and doing whatever they want. Its no wonder this makes for selfish, self-centered people. These kids have trouble maintaining relationships. Once things dont go their way, they walk. I heard a person say about his family, They dont bring anything to the table for me, so why bother? Parents have created these selfish kids. They should not be surprised by the outcome.
