And thats just the way Russian President Vladimir Putin wants these Winter Games to be. The worlds premier athletes on ice and snow have more to worry about than geopolitics as they plunge into the biggest challenges of their lives on the mountain slopes of the Caucasus and in the wet-paint-fresh arenas on the shores of the Black Sea. But watch out for those Russians on their home turf. A raucous group of Russian athletes had a message for their nearly 3,000 rivals in Sochi, marching through Fisht Stadium singing that theyre not gonna get us! Superlatives abounded and the mood soared as Tchaikovsky met pseudolesbian pop duo Tatu and their hit, Not Gonna Get Us. Russian TV presenter Yana Churikova shouted: Welcome to the center of the universe! Yet no amount of cheering could drown out the real world. Fears of terrorism, which have dogged these games since the Putin won them amid controversy seven years ago, were stoked during the ceremony itself.

SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER Friday afternoon, all sides involved in the debate about reducing overcrowding in the canals fronting the entrance to Three Sisters Springs the very popular destination for man, watercraft and manatees got a chance to stake their positions. A workshop was set by the city council to listen to the results of a group charged with coming up with recommendations about bringing sanity to an area many describe as the epicenter of chaos or a huge accident waiting to happen. Others also proffered ideas they think may help relieve the congestion. Neighbors and visitors often describe scenes reminiscent of a crowded parking lot of tour boats, rental vessels, paddlers, swimmers and manatees. They also point to revelry involving excessive consumption of alcohol and loud music, especially during the summer months. The group began their work last June. The working groups chairwoman, Janet Mulligan, called it a very gnarly problem but that people needed to have discussions about problems in the waterway. The group had members from the sheriffs office, homeowners, a representative of the tour operators and members of state agencies and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Mulligan said they met monthly and tossed about several fixes, some of which could not pass legal muster. Restricting the number of vessels that could go down a canal was one such issue they were advised that the canals are navigable waterways which are like public roads and therefore people cant be barred from using them. The group, however, was able to come up with several recommendations before disbanding at the end of the year. Their recommendations include: See SPRINGS/ Page A5 MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerIt wasnt a fill-up or two that got Constantina Emmanuel in trouble. The former nine-year county worker illegally used a government-issued gasoline card to charge $9,000 in fuel for her and her 19-year-old son, authorities contend. Emmanuel, known as Dina to her coworkers and the public, lost her job Dec. 27 after an internal county investigation that followed an anonymous tip saying she was using the county government-issued Wright Express card to gas up her own vehicles. She turned herself in Wednesday to the Citrus County Detention Facility on a warrant charge of scheming to defraud less than $20,000. Emmanuel, 42, of Crystal River, posted $2,000 bond and was released. Emmanuel denied doing anything wrong, a Citrus County Sheriffs Office investigators narrative report states. According to the report, county government officials alerted the sheriffs office on Dec. 10 after following the anonymous allegation with an inquiry. Officials told Detective Jim McIntyre that Emmanuel was assigned two fuel cards one for the county vehicle she drove and the other for vehicles and county equipment in her department. Emmanuel worked for Parks and Recreation, overseeing county facilities such as the Citrus County Auditorium and Citrus Springs Community Center.

No bail for ex-officer in theater shooting Associated PressDADE CITY A bail hearing for a retired Tampa police officer who fatally shot a man inside a movie theater during an argument over texting took a dramatic turn Friday: Prosecutors played a grainy video of the shooting and a recording of the defendants police interview. If I had it to do over again, it would have never happened, Curtis Reeves told detectives. But you dont get do-overs. Reeves, 71, is charged with second-degree murder in the Jan. 13 killing of Chad Oulson, 43. At the end of the hearing, which provided glimpses of the strengths and weaknesses of prosecutors case, the judge ordered Reeves held without bail until his trial. According to the police interview, Reeves said Oulson hit him in the face, possibly with a cellphone, and he shot in selfdefense. Yet other witnesses, including Reeves wife, told authorities they never saw Oulson strike Reeves. Vivian Reeves did tell police that Oulson stood up and leaned over toward her husband just before the shooting, and the video appears to show some sort of contact between the two men. Reeves pleaded not guilty. If convicted, he could face a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years in prison. Prosecutors also played a recording of a police interview with Oulsons widow, Nicole, who authorities said was shot in the hand by the same bullet that killed her husband. He kept saying stuff to my husband, Nicole Oulson said of Reeves. She said didnt realize her husband had been shot. Immediately it didnt even register with me, I just saw a spark and saw him go down, Oulson said. She said after the shooting Reeves just sat in his chair, he just kind of leaned back and just sat there, didnt try to help. As all the chaos was going on, he was just sitting there, she said. Authorities said Reeves became upset when Oulson was texting during the previews before the matinee. The Oulsons were sitting in front of Reeves and his wife. Witnesses said they didnt see Oulson hit Reeves, but some saw popcorn flying toward him. This happened so damn fast, Reeves told Detective Allen Proctor in the recording. Reeves also said a woman with Oulson, later identified as Nicole Oulson, was holding her husband back. Reeves was charged with aggravated battery charge in that injury. The bond hearing began Wednesday. Judge Pat Siracusa heard from Reeves family, friends and former colleagues who testified he didnt have any anger problems and would not be a flight risk. Reeves told the detective that Oulson hit him in the face and that his glasses became crooked. It scared the hell out of me, said Reeves, adding that had he been younger, he would have wrassled Oulson to the ground. The guy was very aggressive. Reeves wife told a detective she didnt see Oulson strike her husband, but he told her he had been hit in the moments after the shooting. Vivian Reeves also told detectives that Oulson used expletives, but didnt make any threats. She cried during the interview and said she didnt know why her husband fired the single shot. He was in law enforcement 20 years, and he never shot anybody, she said. Hes never threatened anybody with a gun. In an interview this week on ABCs The View, Nicole Oulson said her husband was texting with their daughters baby sitter. Reeves had confronted my husband several times, which my husband ignored and ignored and ignored. And it just got to a point where my husband spoke up, she said.Around theCOUNTY 400 dogs and cats await the snipThe February Its Hip to Snip program provided by SnippetCitrus, Humanitarians of Florida and Citrus County Animal Services, helps those who need financial assistance to spay or neuter their pets.

James Burnett told the Crystal River City Council during a workshop on overcrowding at Three Sisters Springs on Friday that Andrew Gude was chosen as Lusks successor. Burnett said and his agency is working hard to fill the deputy refuge manager position and other positions. Gude was the refuge manager at the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge and has been overseeing this complex since last fall when Lusk left for a similar position at the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge in Georgia.

Line Avenue closed for road construction ChronicleINVERNESS Line Avenue, north of Dampier Street, is closed due to road construction. The $275,000 project is part of a scheduled resurfacing project for Lake Street, North Line Avenue, North Talmage Avenue, Mossy Oak Drive and North Trout Avenue, according to Katie Cottrell, Inverness public works director. In addition to resurfacing, the project also addresses the repair of infrastructure elements like a broken stormwater inlet, broken sidewalk segments, substandard sidewalk ramps, the repair of broken curb and gutter sections and the replacement of improperly constructed driveway aprons. Construction on Lake Street is mostly complete, except for a small curb and stormwater repair. Next up will be North Talmage Avenue, then North Trout Avenue, then a very short section of Mossy Oak Drive. The project is scheduled to be substantially complete by the end of April, with final completion by the end of May. While readying Line Avenue in Inverness for resurfacing, crews are making repairs to the roadway.NANCY KENNEDY /Chronicle Free dental clinic hopes to open in the near future ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerHOMOSASSA Chairs and equipment have been installed. So, when is the long-awaited free Citrus County dental clinic going to open? I think people are upset in the delay in the clinic opening, said Joe Papp, director of the Samaritan Dental and Medical Clinic. We have dentists and a dental assistant right now working together to make sure that we have everything ready. Nature Coast Ministries has been working to transition the old, donated Knights of Columbus building into offices, meeting rooms and a free dental and medical clinic. The Catholic Charities Citrus Community Outreach Center, 9020 W. Atlas Drive, Homosassa, is a location providing parttime facilities for the Samaritan Dental and Medical Clinic, as well as the We Care Food Pantry, Pregnancy and Family Life Center, and Citrus Abuse Shelter Association. However, the Samaritan Dental Clinic is still facing obstacles. We have everything coordinated with OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), we just have to get their stamp of approval, Papp said. We work with the state and they already know what we are doing. We have an extensive network of people helping us. More than 20 dental and medical professionals are volunteering their time and have received sovereign immunity through the Florida Volunteer Health Services Department to provide dental and medical services free to adults who qualify; that includes Citrus County elderly, veterans, homeless and lowincome adults. Even though the opening of the clinic is past due, Papp feels that minor purchases need to be made and Citrus County will soon have a free operating dental clinic. The only thing that is disappointing, in my opinion, is that I would have liked to have had it up and running last month, he said. I have a dentist sitting next to me with the final list of what we have to purchase and we should have that back rapidly. The clinic is beautiful and we are busy organizing it. We have three dentists coordinating that. Once we are done with that, thats it. While there is no set date when the clinic will open, Papp said it will be in the near future.

Authorities said 21-year-old Felicia Celeste Vickers and several others drove to Hires St. Petersburg home last March to buy drugs. One of the people in the car began arguing with Hires, who then pulled a gun and fired into the vehicle. Vickers was hit during the shooting. The group drove her to Bayfront Medical Center, where she died several hours later. Hires initially left the area for a few weeks, but was arrested at his home when he returned.From wire reports

The coffin holding Hoffmans body was brought out of the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola by pallbearers and put in a hearse as family and guests began to stream out Friday afternoon. Streep hugged Diane Sawyer as they left. The list of mourners also included Michelle Williams Julianne Moore Joaquin Phoenix, Louis C.K ., Mary Louise Parker, John Slattery, Jerry Stiller, Chris Rock, Marisa Tomei, Spike Lee and Sawyers husband, the director Mike Nichols. Playwright David Bar Katz, who found Hoffmans body, was visibly upset as he arrived. Hoffman, 46, was found dead Sunday of an apparent heroin overdose in his apartment. He leaves behind his partner of 15 years, Mimi ODonnell and their three children. ODonnell was seen cradling their youngest child as she entered the church. A larger memorial service is being planned for later this month. On Thursday evening, family and close friends gathered for a private wake at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home in Manhattan. The rumpled, heavy-set Hoffman was known to dive into roles and was nominated for Academy Awards four times: for The Master, Doubt, Charlie Wilsons War and Capote, which he won. He also received three Tony nominations for his work on Broadway, which included an acclaimed turn in 2012 as the weary and defeated Willy Loman in Death of a Salesman.Lenos last Tonight draws 14.6 million viewersLOS ANGELES NBC said Jay Lenos farewell Tonight Show drew the late-night programs biggest audience in more than 15 years.

A city ordinance prohibiting open containers of alcohol in the canal east of the Kings Bay bridge. Work with enforcement agencies to provide a presence to promote desired behaviors. Establish a mooring system that could help free up the channel near the entrance and provide safety for swimmers. Create a kayak tie-up area east of the water entrance. Mulligan also suggested more stringent penalties for tour operators failing to comply with their Special Use Permit requirements. A spokesman for some of the homeowners in the area near the springs said their ideas about what to do to abate the overcrowding are not incongruent with the aims of the city and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Tom Klein highlighted some safety and environmental concerns, including insufficient safety signage, floating toys, significant shoreline erosion and the displacement of wildlife including manatees with increased human activity. Klein cited figures for visitors to the springs during the recent manatee festival saying 3,509 people were on land and 1,871 were on water just that weekend. But he said a major priority for waterfront residents is enforcement, enforcement, enforcement. Captain Mike Birn of Manatee EcoTourism Association of Citrus County (META) said his group has been promoting best practices among tour operators in which interaction with the manatees are respected and they are not besieged and harassed. Birn, who was also part of the working group, expressed his support for the recommendations. Another tour captain, Mike Dunn, said he would support keeping the big tour boats out of the canals entirely. Another speaker suggested something should be done to address the overcrowding inside the springs. Sheriffs Capt. Danny Linhart, who is the agencys west-side commander, said his office has been doing a lot to improve enforcement on the water, but added that enforcement was not the fix-all to the overcrowding and behavior issues. Linhart said it takes a combination of initiatives to address the behavior issues. Mayor Jim Farley said all suggestions will be considered by the council and appropriate discussion and legislation would follow soon.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Since then he has amassed a vast collection of all sizes of harmonicas, each size producing a sound in a different key or chord. He recently bought a pre-World War II Germanmade bass Hohner instrument. See on the back, theres a circle with a Star of David in it, he says. This was made before Hitler, because when Hitler came they took the Star of David off and never put it back. Hes still learning how to play it, with its low, deep sound. Spratling says the harmonica goes by many names: pocket piano, tin sandwich, Mississippi saxophone, French harp. Whatever you call it, its a hand-held reed instrument thats played by breathing in or breathing out. Thats all you need to know, he says. On a typical Tuesday, as people start wandering into the screen porch out back of Heads & Tails its mainly men, but women are welcome to come, too the meeting of the Citrus County Harmonica Club gets started. Its informal. There are no dues, no officers, no membership list. You just show up and grab a chair. Spratling begins by asking if theres anyone there who has never played. If so, he starts his instruction: You want the numbers to be on top, he says. (There are numbers on top of a harmonica.) You put your mouth over the holes and breathe out. Now breathe in. He adds, If any time youre playing you feel light-headed or dizzy, stop. When Spratling points his finger, that means blow or breathe out. When he jerks his thumb back, that means breathe in. Point, point, point, point. Jerk, jerk, jerk, jerk. Thats the beginning to Skip to My Lou. Those who know what theyre doing, like S. Murray, do some fancy finger fluttering or hand cupping, which creates more of a wah-wah effect. When everyone plays, the beginners doing the point, point, jerk, jerk and the others playing the melody, it becomes music. You can play anything, from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Irish to bluegrass, even classical, Spratling says. Recently, Bill Lindsey came to the club. He had bought a harmonica 40 years ago, intending to take it with him to Canada on a fishing trip, but never did. I can almost play Happy Birthday, Lindsey says. Murray, who has played off and on for years, says theres nothing like sitting around a campfire either playing or listening to someone play. It relaxes you, he says. Its also good for your pulmonary health, helping to increase lung capacity. The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville uses harmonica playing as a supplemental rehab therapy for post-lung transplant patients. Dennis Edington, a regular with the Tuesday group, says hes a smoker with chronic bronchitis and that playing helps him breathe better. But mostly, its fun. Spratling keeps a harmonica in the pocket of his carpenter jeans at all times, just in case he meets up with a band that needs some wah wah wah or hes driving on a long stretch of highway and his mouth needs something to do. I like to walk around on my dock and play for the fish, he says. Ill pretty much break into a song anytime, anywhere. The number one rule of harmonica players? Never leave home without at least one. Another rule: Dont play while youre eating or eat while youre playing. Another rule: Never share your harp with anyone else. Spratling says you can clean the metal off with some polish, but you should never run a harmonica under the faucet or dunk it in water, because that could damage the reeds. The main thing is to remember to breathe. If you can do that, you can play the harmonica. For more information about the Citrus County Harmonica Club, call Bruce Spratling at 202669-1797. The club meets from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays at Heads & Tails Lounge on U.S. 41, 1.5 miles south of Floral City. Harmonicas are available for $5.

Obituaries DeathELSEWHERE From wire reports was a bomb on board and tried to divert the plane to Sochi. Authorities said the plane landed safely in Turkey, and the suspected hijacker who did not have a bomb was subdued. The show opened with an embarrassing hiccup, as one of five snowflakes failed to unfurl as planned into the Olympic rings, forcing organizers to jettison a fireworks display and disrupting one of the most symbolic moments in an opening ceremony. That allowed for an old Soviet tradition of whitewashing problems to resurface, as state-run broadcaster Rossiya 1 substituted a shot from a rehearsal with the rings unfolding successfully into their live broadcast. Also missing from the show: Putins repression of dissent, and inconsistent security measures at the Olympics, which will take place just a few hundred miles away from the sites of a long-running insurgency and routine militant violence. And the poorly paid migrant workers who helped build up the Sochi site from scratch, the disregard for local residents, the environmental abuse during construction, the pressure on activists, and the huge amounts of Sochi construction money that disappeared to corruption. Some world leaders purposely stayed away, but U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and dozens of others were in Sochi for the ceremony. He didnt mention the very real anger over a Russian law banning gay propaganda aimed at minors that is being used to discriminate against gay people. But IOC President Thomas Bach won cheers for addressing it Friday, telling the crowd its possible to hold Olympics with tolerance and without any form of discrimination for whatever reason. For all the criticism, there was no shortage of pride at the ceremony in what Russia has achieved with these games, after building up an Olympic Park out of swampland. The head of the Sochi organizing committee, Dmitry Chernyshenko, captured the mood of many Russians present when he said, Were now at the heart of that dream that became reality. The games in Sochi are our chance to show the whole world the best of what Russia is proud of, he said. Our hospitality, our achievements, our Russia! The ceremony presented the Putins version of todays Russia: a country with a rich and complex history emerging confidently from a rocky two decades and now capable of putting on a major international sports event. Putin himself was front and center, declaring the games open from his box high above the stadium floor. Earlier, he looked down as the real stars of the games those athletes, dressed in winter wear of so many national colors to ward off the evening chill and a light dusting of manmade snow walked onto a satellite image of the earth projected on the floor, the map shifting so the athletes appeared to emerge from their own country. As always, Greece the birthplace of Olympic competition came first in the parade of nations. Five new teams, all from warm-weather climates, joined the Winter Olympians for the first time. Togos flagbearer looked dumbstruck with wonder, but those veterans from the Cayman Islands had the style to arrive in shorts.

US gets approximately $17.2T debt limit FridayWASHINGTON The U.S. government got a new borrowing cap Friday, almost four months after Washington defused Octobers government shutdown and debt crisis. The new cap on borrowing is expected to be about $17.2 trillion. It means Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew will have to employ bookkeeping maneuvers to keep the government functioning until Congress further raises the borrowing limit. In a letter Friday to congressional leaders, Lew warned that he has less maneuvering room now than he had last year, when such extraordinary measures bought five months of time for the government to keep borrowing at the previous $16.7 trillion debt ceiling. Lew said that he could not be confident that the extraordinary measures would last beyond Feb. 27.Obama signs farm bill that trims food stampsEAST LANSING, Mich. President Barack Obama on Friday signed into law an agriculture spending bill that will spread benefits to farmers in every region of the country, while trimming the food stamp program that inspired a two-year battle over the legislation. As he penned his name on the five-year measure at Michigan State University, Obama said the wide-ranging bill multitasks by helping boost jobs, innovation, research and conservation.Postal Service had $354M first-quarter lossWASHINGTON The Postal Service lost $354 million over the last three months, and officials warned that mounting losses could lead to cash flow problems for the rest of the year, the agency said Friday. The loss was far less than the $1.3 billion in the comparable quarter the previous fiscal year, but Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe continued to press Congress to give the agency more flexibility to manage its finances. The report for the financial quarter ending December 31 comes as Congress works toward fixing the agencys troubled finances. On Thursday, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee approved a bill that would end Saturday mail delivery and make permanent a temporary hike in the cost of a first-class stamp, which went from 46 to 49 cents on Jan. 26. Moodys downgrades Puerto Rico credit rating SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico Puerto Ricos credit rating was dealt its second blow in a week when Moodys Investors Service announced Friday it had downgraded the U.S. territorys debt to junk status. The downgrade of two notches came just days after Standard & Poors downgraded the islands debt by one notch, prompting the local government to file new legislation aimed at shoring up the economy as it prepares to reenter the bond market this month. Moodys said Puerto Ricos government took strong and aggressive actions to control spending and reduce debt issuance, among other things, but that it remained concerned about its liquidity and ability to access the market. While some economic indicators point to a preliminary stabilization, we do not see evidence of economic growth sufficient to reverse the commonwealths negative financial trends, the agency said. Without an economic revival, the commonwealth will face difficult decisions in coming years, as its debt and pension costs rise.AA to put extra-legroom seats on US AirwaysDALLAS Since American and US Airways announced a year ago that they planned to merge, travelers have been eager to see how the airlines will resolve differences in amenities and frequent-flier programs. The airlines, which completed their merger in December, are finally hinting how theyll settle one difference. In a message to employees this week, American Airlines Group Inc. leaders said they plan to go with Americans practice of providing extra legroom with a few seats in the economy cabin, and charging passengers more to sit there. Passengers willing to pay American $16 to $159 more per flight up from $8 to $108 two years ago can get a Main Cabin Extra seat with up to six inches more legroom on most planes. The perk is free for elite members of Americans frequent-flier program. US Airways offers ChoiceSeats. Those are often window or aisle seats near the front of the economy cabin, allowing for a quicker exit after landing, but they have the same legroom as non-choice seats. American hasnt said how it will install the roomier seats on US Airways planes, which eventually will be repainted in Americans colors and logo. It could try to squeeze other rows closer together or use slimmer seats to create more space.Apple takes $14B bite of its stock via buybackNEW YORK Apple has repurchased $14billion of its stock in the two weeks after its first-quarter financial results and secondquarter revenue outlook disappointed investors. The buyback news helped lift Apples stock by more than 1percent Friday. Apple Inc. bought $12billion worth of its shares through an accelerated repurchase program and $2billion on the open market, the company confirmed. The company stepped its investments because CEO Tim Cook believed the stock had become a bargain after a recent downturn. Late Thursday, Cook said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that the company was surprised when its stock dropped 8percent the day after its earnings report and revenue outlook. He told the newspaper he wanted to be aggressive and opportunistic. Apple has grown accustomed to being a leader in the technology sector. In the Steve Jobs era, consumers and investors alike eagerly awaited each new product announcement and have been rewarded as devices like the iPhone and iPad won accolades for innovation and pushing technology forward. But with each new innovation over the years, there have been increasingly higher expectations for the future. In the past year, Apples shares have lost some ground due to concerns about slowing growth and increasing competition.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, FEBRUARY8, 2014 A7 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,600 1,650 1,700 1,750 1,800 1,850 AF SONDJ 1,720 1,760 1,800 S&P 500Close: 1,797.02 Change: 23.59 (1.3%) 10 DAYS 14,500 15,000 15,500 16,000 16,500 17,000 AF SONDJ 15,320 15,640 15,960 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 15,794.08 Change: 165.55 (1.1%) 10 DAYSAdvanced2393 Declined701 New Highs71 New Lows12 Vol. (in mil.)3,635 Pvs. Volume3,704 2,016 1,895 1809 757 56 34 NYSE NASD DOW 15798.5115625.5315794.08+165.55+1.06%-4.72% DOW Trans.7266.877186.827242.33+60.42+0.84%-2.14% DOW Util.504.08500.49503.85+3.51+0.70%+2.71% NYSE Comp.10061.339962.7510055.38+115.15+1.16%-3.32% NASDAQ4126.514069.934125.86+68.74+1.69%-1.21% S&P5001798.031776.011797.02+23.59+1.33%-2.78% S&P4001308.791297.021308.39+13.57+1.05%-2.54% Wilshire 500019212.1918957.0819203.91+246.83+1.30%-2.55% Russell 20001116.621104.911116.55+12.62+1.14%-4.05% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Call of Duty and Skylanders fueled a big fourth quarter at the gamemaker, which topped Wall Streets profit expectations. The retailer issued a surprisingly strong profit outlook for the fourth quarter and comparable-store sales rose in January. Investors are eating up shares of the film company as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire continues to light up the box office. According to the CEO of the professional networking site there will be heavy spending on long-term projects in the year ahead. The health services organization fell short of profit expectations and its guidance for next year did not win over many investors. Investors focused on the positive in the January unemployment report Friday. Employers added a less-than-expected 113,000 jobs, but the national unemployment rate dipped to 6.6 percent.

On Friday, the U.S. stock market rebounded from a deep slump earlier in the week to muster the first positive five-day stretch after three weeks of declines. The days modest gains added to a strong finish for stocks a day earlier, enough for the Dow Jones industrial average to eke out a 0.6 percent gain for the week, while the S&P 500 index finished up 0.8 percent. Both are still down for the year. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 165.55 points, or 1.1percent, to 15,794.08. The Standard & Poors 500 rose 23.59 points, or 1.3percent, to 1,797.02. The Nasdaq composite increased 68.74 points, or 1.7percent, to 4,125.86. Expedia led the gains in the S&P 500 index, surging 14 percent after reporting that its profit and revenue jumped as hotel bookings increased. Fridays rally didnt seem likely to happen as the day got going. A widely anticipated jobs report from the Labor Department showed U.S. employers added 113,000 jobs last month, less than the average monthly gain of 194,000 in 2013. This followed Decembers tepid increase of just 75,000. The overall payroll figure disappointed markets, and index futures fell before regular stock trading began. Stocks moved higher in mid-morning trading as investors dug deeper into the details of the report, which also showed that manufacturers, construction firms and mining and drilling companies added 76,000 jobs combined, a strong showing. The market had a tough time figuring out what to do with the (jobs) number when it first came out, said J.J. Kinahan, chief strategist with TD Ameritrade. As the day went on, it just kind of discounted some of the negatives in there to say, What do we really want? We want a growing economy, and these are the jobs we got for a growing economy. The government also reported that the nations unemployment rate dipped to 6.6percent in January from 6.7percent in December. It was the lowest rate since October 2008. BusinessBRIEFS From wire reports
OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2014 Time for defensive drivingI almost couldnt believe my eyes when I saw the title of the front page article on the Jan. 29 edition of theChronicle Drivers: Why cant I drive 55? Someone was finally focused on a safe and sane 55 mph speed limit in a county where almost half of the drivers are more than 65 years old. Looking forward to a sheriffs office announcement of a new policy of enforcing the speed limit, I dove right in to the article. It started with a declaration of left-lane hogging and lack of turn signal use. Boy, this was going to be some indictment of bad driving practices and what will be done to change them. But then it took a cruel turn. The article was a complaint that the speed limit was to low on the newly completed section of C.R. 486. Oh, the disappointment. I guess Ill just have to continue to polish my defensive driving tactics. Richard M. Klotz Jr. Beverly HillsMore meaningful bills from our repsThank you Chroniclefor printing the legislative priorities for our elected officials, Jimmie T. Smith and Charlie Dean (Sunday, Feb. 2). I wonder if Im the only voter in Citrus County who thinks neither legislator has any major issue that really impacts us. For example, why arent they trying to do something to rescind the prepayments to Duke Energy? I recall Mike Fasano always being very vocal in Tallahassee about that. Id like to see both legislators take on more aggressive goals that would do something concrete to help the citizens of Citrus County. Continuing with trivia and beating up the poor isnt it. Kerry Williams Hernando Medical marijuana will be on the Florida ballot in November, which is bad news for Gov. Rick Scott and other Republican leaders who oppose any relaxation of the states backward cannabis laws. They say medical use of weed is the first step toward Colorado-style legalization, and they might be right. They say that although the proposed constitutional amendment names only nine diseases, lots of people who arent really sick will find a way to get marijuana from certain doctors. Thats probably true, too. This, after all, is the state that made pill mills a roadside tourist attraction. Who can doubt that future pot prescriptions will bear the signatures of a Dr. Cheech or a Dr. Chong? But guess what voters know that, and most dont seem worried. Theyve seen whats happened in California, where no anarchy materialized after medicinal pot was approved. Nor has the fabric of society disintegrated in the 20 other states and the District of Columbia, where similar laws are on the books. In Florida, as is true throughout the country, public surveys continue to show landslide support for medical marijuana and a majority favoring the decriminalization of small amounts for personal use. This is a thorny problem for conservative Republicans such as Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi, who are up for reelection. They now have to sally forth and crusade against a popular cause, trying to stir fear and doubts among a constituency thats heard it all before. The main force behind the medical marijuana movement is John Morgan, an Orlando trial attorney. Morgan is a major Democratic donor who is close to former governor Charlie Crist, Scotts likely opponent in November. One would assume that having medicinal pot on the ballot will draw more Democrats and independents to the polls, boosting Crists chances of beating Scott. However, the high polling popularity of the marijuana measure means lots of Republican voters like it, too. For one thing, pot really does help certain patients with glaucoma, AIDS, multiple sclerosis and other serious medical conditions that dont discriminate between liberals and conservatives. For another, marijuana isnt some exotic mystery drug whose effects are unknown; its been around so long that its embedded in our culture music, movies, television and literature. Smoking it is totally a bipartisan groove. Tallahassee is currently controlled by Republicans, but the Capitol building would be as quiet as a mausoleum if you got rid of everyone who came to work with THC in their blood. The same is true for most big workplaces. Opponents of the marijuana amendment say the wording is too loose because it allows cannabis to be prescribed for other medical conditions besides the specified diseases if the physician thinks the benefits outweigh the potential harm. Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Ricky Polston, writing for the minority in the courts 43 decision that approved the ballot item, criticized a section giving doctors immunity from prosecution for prescribing marijuana. For example, a physician, in his misguided professional opinion, could believe that the benefits of marijuana for a teething toddler would likely outweigh the risks, Polston said, and, therefore, recommend that the toddler use marijuana three times a day for six months until the teething subsided. This bizarre hypothetical assumes that the pediatrician is an incompetent psychopath, and that the parents of the toddler are knuckle-dragging morons. Thats a recurring theme of the political opposition to the medical cannabis amendment people are just too darn naive to know whats really happening. Yet on this subject most voters arent naive, and theyve got a fair idea whats coming. Of course the law will make marijuana more accessible. Of course many perfectly healthy people will try to obtain prescriptions, and of course some doctors will oblige. Of course there will be some abuse, as there is with alcohol and prescription drugs. And, of course, because its Florida, the licensing and regulation of medicinal cannabis facilities will be haphazard, bumbling and occasionally corrupt. Big, big money is at stake for the state as well as for the growers. Theres one huge difference between the phony pain clinics that once proliferated here and the marijuana dispensaries that will open if 60 percent of voters approve: Pill mills, which cater to addicts and street dealers, kill lots people. Pot dispensaries dont. Theres a political risk if Scott, Bondi and the others fight too hard against marijuana reforms. Public sentiment is strongly against them, and their scare tactics could backfire in November.

Rick Scotts recommendation that there be a tax-free holiday for the purchase of hurricane supplies has both a political and practical feel about it. Seeing the past successes of the back-to-school tax-free holidays, the new proposal could build on a popular concept. The governor projects the hurricane supply tax holiday could account for about $20 million of the nearly $600 million in tax decreases hes aiming for in the upcoming legislative session. While thats a hefty sum, to put things in perspective, Gov. Scotts proposed budget is more than $74 billion. Itll be up to the Legislature whether the hurricane supply tax holiday flies or not. In seeking re-election, theres no doubt Gov. Scott is identifying legislation that could boost his popularity among voters. Thats just the game of politics. Regardless, the initiative could lead to more Floridians taking hurricane preparedness seriously. Not surprisingly, when people go shopping for certain taxfree items, they end up buying other taxable products, providing revenue to businesses and, via taxes, the state. As presented, the exemption would apply to specific items with caps on the dollar amounts. For example, the tax-free status would be capped at $20 for flashlights and $30 for batteries. While theres no doubt the proposal is good-old feel-good political posturing, you really cant knock hurricane preparedness. The calm hurricane seasons in recent years undoubtedly have created complacency among many. If this measure can help safeguard the public, trim taxes and stimulate business, it warrants consideration regardless of who voters favor in the next gubernatorial election.

And his wife, after seeing him in distress, drove him to the hospital, but he never made it. He died before he got there. His throat swelled up.

Cut it out with the gravy train already. Well, all I have to say on that issue is, you need to tell that attorney, (Bill) Grant, let him pay for the $30,000 or $40,000 that they want a month for that new CEO for the hospital. I think its ridiculous.Beaty is flying highThis Sound Off is in relation to the hospital activities.

It would get a head start on the proposed takeover and perhaps in taxpayers funds.Hold them accountableThe editorial today on, lets see, Jan. 28, is the best that the Chronicle has ever written. Its perfect. Enough is enough of all this spending money and waste in the hospital battle. Every one of those board members should be fined $1million each and see how they like it. Just because were taxpayers and we have to pay our fine, they should have to pay their fines, too, for a stupid job and erratic behavior. ... They should be held accountable for the money they spent.

The countys inquiry noted that Emmanuels worker identification number and that of another workers were used in the fuel purchases. McIntyre interviewed Emmanuel, who agreed to answer questions after receiving her Miranda rights, the report states. Emmanuel said that employees using the fuel card would use either her identification number or the other workers. She said she never used the Wright Express card to fuel her own vehicle or anyone elses vehicle not owned by the county. McIntyre said he viewed surveillance videos at two county gasoline stations and matched their date and time with the Wright Express records. One station showed fuel purchased on the card by Emmanuels son and the other station across from the county-owned Holder Community Center showed Emmanuel fueling her own Chrysler van. In all, Emmanuel is accused of illegally charging about $9,000 on the Wright Express card and improperly signing the coworkers identification number to some of the purchases, sheriffs spokeswoman Heather Yates said. Wright Express cards are issued only to employees who drive vehicles or operate county machinery. County Administrator Brad Thorpe said in a statement that the county is reviewing its policies to prevent a similar occurrence.LOCAL/STATECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, FEBRUARY8, 2014 A9 GREEK FESTIVAL VENDOR EXPO 2014 FREE PARKING RAIN OR SHINE Delicious Greek Dinners Greek Music & Daily Door Prizes Specialty Merchandise Vendors Greek Pastries, Desserts & Coffee Shoppe Greek Gyros & Grilled Specialties Feb. 21, 22 & 23 Indoor Dinners & Outside Grille Friday & Saturday 11a.m. 8p.m. Sunday 11a.m. 5p.m. ADMISSION $1.00 DONATION Presented by: Archangel Michael Greek Orthodox Church 4705 W.

He is pleading not guilty and said he shot Davis in self-defense.No early voting center in UF student unionGAINESVILLE State elections officials have nixed a request to put an early voting site in a University of Florida student union building. The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida on Friday said the decision by the Secretary of States office to reject the request from the City of Gainesville is intended to make it harder for students to vote in the upcoming 2014 election. It is the latest criticism of Gov. Rick Scotts administration on an early-voting issue. In 2012, Scott was criticized for declining to use his emergency powers to expand early voting to ease hours-long waits.

Associated PressBANGUI, Central African Republic Thousands of Muslims climbed aboard trucks protected by heavily armed Chadian soldiers in a mass exodus Friday from the capital of Central African Republic. Their flight follows months of escalating attacks on anyone perceived as supporting a now-defunct Muslim rebel government blamed for scores of atrocities during its rule of this predominantly Christian country. In The Hague, Netherlands, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court announced a preliminary investigation into potential war crimes or crimes against humanity in Central African Republic, saying the crisis has gone from bad to worse since September. Along the streets of Bangui, crowds of Christians gathered to cheer the convoys departure for the neighboring country of Chad, which is mostly Muslim. It was an acrid farewell to their Muslim neighbors who had in some cases lived alongside Christians for generations here and have few ties to Chad. The dangers for those who stayed behind were clear: One man who tumbled from the precariously overloaded trucks was brutally slain, witnesses said. He didnt even have the time to fall he landed into the hands of the angry mob who then lynched him at the scene, said Armando Yanguendji, a resident of the Gobongo district who witnessed the horror. Another truck in the same neighborhood escaped attack from Christian militiamen only when Burundian peacekeepers fired into the air to disperse the crowd trying to assault the convoy, he said. Some trucks broke down even before they could leave Bangui on Friday and had to be abandoned. The passengers jumped aboard other trucks, facing constant jeering, threats and stone-throwing from the spectators. The Christians say the Muslims must go back where they came from thats why we are going home, said Osmani Benui as she fled Bangui. We couldnt stay here because we had no protection. They did have protection as they departed. Chadian special forces went along as well as Seleka rebels in cars, armed with pistols and AK-47s. The convoy of some 500 cars, trucks and motorcycles strained under the weight of peoples belongings. The aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres, or Doctors Without Borders, said Friday that tens of thousands of Muslims have now fled to Chad and Cameroon. The U.N. refugee agency said that almost 9,000 people have fled to Cameroon in the past 10 days, bringing the number of refugees in Cameroon to 22,000 since current began. It really is a horrific situation. All over Bangui, entire Muslim neighborhoods are being destroyed and emptied, said Peter Bouckaert, emergencies director for Human Rights Watch, who has gotten trapped Muslims to safety under the guard of peacekeepers. Their buildings are being destroyed and being taken apart, brick by brick, roof by roof, to wipe out any sign of their once existence in this country, he added. But the dangers are not limited to the capital. Entire communities remain trapped in parts of northwest Central African Republic, according to the Medecins Sans Frontieres statement. A Muslim community of more than 8,000 people in Bouar remains effectively imprisoned, unable to flee the violence.

State Sen. Mark Leno, San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon and other elected and law enforcement officials said the bill, if passed, would require mobile devices sold in or shipped to California to have the anti-theft devices starting next year. The CTIA-The Wireless Association, a trade group for wireless providers, says a permanent kill switch has serious risks, including potential vulnerability to hackers who could disable mobile devices and lock out not only individuals phones but also phones used by entities such as the Department of Defense, Homeland Security and law enforcement agencies. The association has been working on a national stolen phone database that launched in November to remove any market for stolen smartphones.Winter storm blasts NorthwestPORTLAND, Ore. Northwest residents are absorbing the second blow of a 1-2 winter punch by taking a snow day and keeping their cars in the garage. In downtown Portland, streets coated with a thin layer of packed snow were nearly traffic-free before the first flurries fell Friday. Office buildings generally packed with workers were quiet, and shops closed early or didnt open at all. It was a similar scene throughout western Oregon and southwest Washington as the region awaited and then received its second winter storm in two days.

Cypriots to restart talksNICOSIA, Cyprus Efforts to reunify the ethnically divided Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus will recommence next week after rival Greek and Turkish Cypriots agreed to a new round of talks. In a brief statement Friday, the breakaway Turkish Cypriots said renewed talks became possible after both sides agreed on text of a joint declaration outlining the main principles that will guide a future accord. The statement said a first meeting between the leaders is planned for the beginning of next week. Cyprus was divided in 1974 when Turkey invaded after a coup by supporters of union with Greece.Israel ex-PM recalls 2008 talks JERUSALEM Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Friday that if talks he held with Palestinians in 2008 had produced a peace deal, it would have forced tens of thousands of Jewish settlers to leave their homes in the West Bank. If a deal had been reached at the time, it would also not have included an Israeli presence in the Jordan Valley, Olmert said. The Palestinians want their state to include the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, territories Israel captured from Jordan in the 1967 war. In an interview with Channel 2 TV, Olmert said that in his opinion, a deal in 2008 would have made about 80,000 settlers leave their homes. Asked if Israel would be able to evacuate 80,000 settlers today, Olmert said: I have no doubt that it is possible. World BRIEFS From wire reports Syrian civilians evacuated Associated PressBEIRUT Dozens of children and women along with elderly people in wheelchairs were evacuated Friday from besieged neighborhoods of Syrias battleground city of Homs under a deal between the warring sides that included a three-day cease-fire. The rare truce in Homs, which will also allow the entrance of aid convoys, may help build some confidence ahead of a second round of peace talks between the opposition and the government of President Bashar Assad, scheduled to begin in Geneva next week. By nightfall, about 80 civilians were brought out of the city, many of them appearing frail and exhausted. Residents have endured a crushing blockade and severe food shortages for more than a year. U.N. mediator Lakhdar Brahimi had pushed for aid for the estimated 2,500 civilians trapped in the ancient, rebel-held quarters known as Old Homs as a confidence-building measure during the first face-toface meetings in Geneva last month. The talks were adjourned until Feb. 10 with no tangible progress, as the Syrian government accused the opposition of capitalizing on human suffering in Homs to score points with the international community. There have been few cease-fires during the course of Syrias nearly 3year-old conflict. Over the past year, several temporary truces were negotiated to allow for the evacuation of civilians and the delivery of food parcels in and around Damascus. Muslims forced out Associated PressAt PK12, the last checkpoint at the exit of t Bangui, thousands of Muslim residents from Bangui and Mbaiki flee the Central African Republic in a mass exodus Friday using cars, pickups, trucks, lorries and motorcycles, escorted by Chadian troops.

Christians cheer, kill as convoy leaves Central African city Reports: NSA gets less than 30 pct. of phone data Associated PressWASHINGTON The National Security Agency collects less than 30 percent of calling data from Americans despite the agencys massive daily efforts to sweep up the bulk of U.S. phone records, two U.S. newspapers reported Friday. Citing anonymous officials and sources, The Washington Post andThe Wall Street Journalboth said the NSAs phone data collection has had a steep drop-off since 2006. According to the newspapers, the government has been unable to keep pace since then with a national surge in cellphone usage and dwindling landline use by American consumers. The Postsaid the NSA takes in less than 30 percent of all call data; the Journalsaid it is about or less than 20 percent. In either case, the figures are far below the amount of phone data collected in 2006, when the government extracted nearly all of U.S. calling records, both newspapers reported. NSA officials intend to press for court authorization to broaden their coverage of cellphone providers to return the government to neartotal coverage of Americans calling data, the newspapers said. The lowered estimates for the sweep of government surveillance would be significant because federal judges, members of government task forces and media accounts based on documents provided by NSA leaker Edward Snowden have all described the NSAs bulk metadata collection as sweeping in millions of records from American phone users. Lowered estimates could be cited by officials to alleviate privacy and civil liberties fears, but they could also raise questions about the governments rationale for the program that the NSAs use of all Americans phone records are critical in preventing potential terrorist plots. National security officials have said that the collection of bulk data is essential to national security because it provides a massive pool of calling records and other metadata that NSA analysts can quickly search to pinpoint calling patterns showing evidence of potential terror threats. Critics have pressed efforts to end the bulk phone data sweeps, and two panels of experts have urged President Barack Obama to end the program because they see little counter-terrorism advantages and say the program intrudes on personal liberties.

But, at the Lecanto High School courts Friday afternoon against the visiting Crystal River Pirates, things got back on track for Panthers tennis. Both teams braved the chilly weather for an intra-county matchup that saw the Panther girls team blank the Pirates 7-0, while the Panther boys won handily, 5-2. Played really well today (after) losing a tough match earlier in the week to a really strong Forest team, Lecanto boys head coach Jack Hall said. It was good to see them bounce back and play well. Two-timeChroniclePlayer of the Year Rishi Gurnani led the Panther charge with a 6-0, 6-0 straight-set decision over the Pirates Ryan Johnson in the No. 1 singles match. Lecantos No. 2 singles player Sam Alford made similar work of Crystal Rivers Ben Epstein 6-0, 6-0. A bit of a battle ensued in the No. 3 singles match. Dhruv Patel held on for the Panthers winning 6-2, 6-1 over the challenging Pirate Matt White. The battles continued at No. 4 singles as Crystal Rivers Deven Reed held on to win the only singles bout of the day for the Pirates. Reed won 6-4, 5-7, 10-8 in a three-set tiebreaker over Lecantos Marshall King. In the No. 5 singles match, Lecantos Chris Kaufman defeated Crystal Rivers Ryan Grant 6-1, 6-2. The doubles matches were split between the two boys teams as the No. 1 team of Gurnani and Alford made short work of Crystal Rivers Johnson and Andrew Allen winning 8-0 in a pro-set. Crystal Rivers It was good to see them bounce back and play well.Jack HallLecanto boys tennis coach said of his teams play against Crystal River on Friday. Last-gasp shot no good for Warriors Canes edge Tigers 69-63 to claim District 5A-6 titleSEANARNOLD CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER If you focus on Citrus talented core of players and impressive record, you might overlook the struggle its endured for its successes this year. In Fridays District 5A-6 championship game, three days after the Hurricanes narrowly knocked off Lecanto, Dunnellon made sure CHS would have to, once again, earn its accolades. Without fouled-out team leader Devin Pryor for the final 4:37 of play, the Canes played even with the Tigers for the second half in holding on for a thrilling 69-63 boys basketball victory in the Crystal River High School gym. With the win, Citrus won back-to-back district titles for the first time since 2002-03, and earns itself a home game against District 5A-5 runnerup Lake Weir for Thursdays regional quarterfinal round. It initially appeared the second-seeded Canes (25-2) would have an easier time with Dunnellon (16-10), which split with Citrus in the regular season and won the coin toss for the top seed. Mostly without junior Sam Franklin, who sat out the opening quarter over disciplinary reasons stemming from Tuesdays 64-62 semifinal win, Citrus jumped to a 30-14 advantage midway into the second quarter, behind a trio of 3s by Pryor and 12 early points and five steals by junior Desmond Franklin. But with some shortpossession misses by Citrus and a couple of 3-pointers from junior Desmond Frazier and sophomore Darion Baker, the Tigers cut the lead to 34-30 with 22 seconds remaining in the half. As can happen, CHS head coach Tom Densmore said, the lead went away really fast. We just had to gather ourselves at halftime and say were still up six and the second quarters behind us. It was hard to get breathing room. Dunnellon MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleCitrus senior point guard Devin Pryor scores over Darion Baker of Dunnellon in the fourth quarter of Friday nights District 5A-6 championship game at Crystal River High School. The Hurricanes defeated the Tigers 69-63 and will host District 5A-5 runnerup Lake Weir on Thursday at Citrus High School. SRCS boys basketball edged 68-67 by Saints ChronicleDown one point with 1.3 seconds left, the Seven Rivers Christian boys basketball team got the ball into the hands of its best player and were able to get a shot off. Unfortunately for the Warriors, that attempt glanced off the front of the rim and clinched defeat for the squad. Adam Gages 20-footer with no time left couldnt find the mark, and No. 3 seed Seven Rivers suffered a 68-67 loss to second-seeded Ocala St. John Lutheran in the District 2A-3 tournament semifinals on Friday night at The Rock in Gainesville. The missed final shot withstanding, Gage did everything in his power to make sure his Warriors had a chance at the end of regulation. The 6-foot-3 senior guard posted 36 points, 12 rebounds and five assists. As a coach and a former player, you just want that kid to leave the court on a very high note, Seven Rivers coach Jim Ervin said, and thats what he did (with his play) tonight. Warriors junior guard Cory Weiand also had a stellar effort with 23 points for Seven Rivers. Ervin lauded several of his charges effort against the Saints. (Adam) and the Weiand boy both played outstanding, you cant say enough about them, Ervin said. Roy Finney had an outstanding year for us as well as a senior. Still, Ervin acknowledged the graduation of Gage one of the best players to ever take the court for the Warriors will be tough to replace. Its going to be a huge loss for the program, as a player and as an individual, said Ervin of Gage. It was one of those nights where early, he didnt hit a lot of shots but as the game wore on, he really stepped up. Seven Rivers season ends at 7-14 overall.

I thought both teams played better than they did in both of our previous game, added Densmore, whose team defeated DHS by 18 at home in January. I dont remember playing them in a game like that this year, where we were both at the top of our game. While the Tigers, thanks in large part to the ferocious rebounding efforts of junior Andre Hairston (21 boards, 19 points), did prevent Citrus from stringing together any fierce rallies for the remainder, they stayed at least two possessions behind for all but 10 seconds of the second half, after a Frazier free throw made it 60-57 with 3:30 to play. You cant spot a 24-2 team 14 points, said DHS head coach Travis Licht, referring to Citrus 25-11 lead early in the second quarter. We dug ourselves into a little bit of a hole, and we spent the whole game trying to dig out of it. Im proud of our guys. They played as hard as they could, and they played really well. As long as were playing at a high level this time of the year, we always have a chance. Desmond Franklin draped his cousin Frazier for most of the game, but had to go to the bench for a stretch in the fourth and played more cautious defense late in the game after getting his fourth foul. Frazier finished with a team-high 26 points off of four 3s, while Desmond Franklin, later forced to take over at point for Pryor, had 22. Everything runs through Devin, Franklin said. He sparks our team. I had never played that role before, but youve got to do what youve got to do. Despite not finishing the game, Pryor, also a cousin of Fraziers and both Franklins, paced everyone with 28 points. He said his teammates assured him after he fouled out. Sam (Franklin) told me, were not leaving you with a loss, and he meant it, Pryor said. I told Dez (Franklin) that (Dunnellons) not going to stop him when he penetrates, so he just needed to keep driving. Shortly before fouling out, Pryor gave his team a 60-48 lead, its biggest of the second half, on a soft lay-in. I think people look at our record and think we just kind of sailed through the season, said Densmore, putting his teams championship in perspective. But weve had adversity all over the place. We started the season with no football players, and then were still without Sam (Franklin until January). Then, when Sam comes back, (senior) Mitchell Ellis breaks his ankle two games later. Then we wrap it all up by losing the coin toss (for the seeding). And then tonight, we go the first quarter without Sam and most of the fourth quarter without Devin (Pryor). But it seems like a different guy rises to the occasion every time. Weve fought through everything. Nothings been handed to us. No. 2 team of Epstein and White won 8-5 over Lecantos Patel and King. Its the first part of the season (so) things are optimistic, Hall said. Were playing well, led by a strong senior in Rishi. Hes taking the role of team captain and doing a great job with that so were just looking forward to a really good season. Lecanto 2013 state qualifier Madison Gamble cruised to a shutout win over Crystal Rivers Veronica Williams 6-0, 6-0 in No. 1 singles. No. 2 Mahima Tatam nearly won in the same fashion as she bested Pirate Anna Lane 6-1, 6-0. No. 3 Simi Shah earned another point for the Panthers in her 6-1, 6-1 defeat of Crystal Rivers Olivia Parker, while the No. 4 and 5 singles matches were slightly closer than the first three matches, but ultimately won by Lecanto, as Megan Jervis defeated Shannon Hancock 6-3, 6-3 and Andrea Dela Cruz bested Alanna Fields 6-0, 6-2, respectively. No. 1 doubles saw a Lecanto duo of Gamble and Tatam faceoff against Crystal Rivers Williams and Hancock in a pro-set match. Lecanto took the match 8-2. No. 2 doubles ended much the same way as Lecantos Chynna Liu and Shah won 8-5 over the Pirate pair of Lane and Parker. Im proud of the way my girls played but Crystal Rivers girls played well, too, Lecanto girls head coach Sammie Hall said. It was a fun match. The kids had fun. It was just a cold, nice day.

Michigans football team will receive a $6 million participation fee for its 2017 season opener against Florida in Arlington, Texas. Michigan released its contract for the Cowboys Classic on Friday. The game is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 2. The contract is dated Dec. 14, 2013, and it includes language that says if Florida is provided a greater financial guarantee than Michigans participation, Michigan can receive additional consideration until its guarantee equals Floridas. The contract says ESPN receives a $5 million guarantee from CSLP Stadium LP and a $1 million sanction fee from the Stadium Events Organizing Committee. ESPN pays the $6 million to Michigan. This game will be played at AT&T Stadium, home to the NFLs Dallas Cowboys. Michigan played in 2012 Cowboys Classic, losing 41-14 to Alabama.Hurricanes softball opens regular season strongAlyssa Nathan went 2 for 5 with two runs, two RBIs and two stolen bases as the Citrus softball team downed Lake Weir 12-4 on Friday night in Marion County. Erica Corlew (3 for 4, run, RBI) and Emaly Ferreira (1 for 2, run, two walks) also paced the Hurricanes offensively. From the pitching circle, Rachel Martin struck out four batters in five innings to snag the win for Citrus while teammate Kelly Ambramowich fanned three in two innings to earn the save. The Hurricanes (1-0) play Wednesday at Brooksville Central.10th annual Kids Fishing Clinic on tap for Feb. 22Dont miss out on this fun free event!

Adult sportsNEWS Rodriguez accepts season-long suspension Yankees third baseman will miss all of 2014 Associated PressNEW YORK Alex Rodriguez ended his extended and acrimonious fight with Major League Baseball on Friday, withdrawing a pair of lawsuits and accepting a season-long suspension that marks the longest penalty in the sports history related to performance-enhancing drugs. Rodriguez, who has steadfastly denied using banned substances while with the New York Yankees, made the decision nearly four weeks after arbitrator Fredric Horowitz largely upheld the discipline issued last summer by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig. I think its a good move for him, former Commissioner Fay Vincent said. A-Rod had no chance legally, and the commissioner got his authority validated. Rodriguez was among 14 players suspended last summer following MLBs investigation of a Florida anti-aging clinic accused of distributing banned substances. Given the harshest punishment, A-Rod was the only player to contest his penalty. The Major League Baseball Players Association filed a grievance, arguing Rodriguezs 211game ban was unwarranted or at the very least excessive. New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez dropped his lawsuits and will serve the season-long suspension handed down by Major League Baseball.Associated Press Jeter upbeat after workouts Braves Johnson looking to build on last season Associated PressTAMPA New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter is upbeat after completing his third week of baseball activities. Jeter, who turns 40 in June, was limited to 17 games last year after breaking his left ankle during the 2012 AL championship series. Ahead of spring training, he is taking batting practice, fielding grounders and has resumed a running program. I feel good, Jeter said Friday after working out at the Yankees minor league complex. Ive been working hard, and Ive had a complete offseason to work out and strengthen everything. Jeter started his off-field work in November, something he wasnt able to do after the 2012 season when he was still using a walking boot into January due to ankle surgery. Its been fun, but its been difficult because youre starting over from scratch, Jeter said. Basically going for pretty much a whole year where you cant really work out. Its a long process, but its been enjoyable now to get back to this point. The shortstop missed the first 91 games of the 2013 season, then felt pain in his right quadriceps when he returned July 11. He went back on the DL, returned July 28 for three games, then strained his right calf. Back in the lineup on Aug. 26, he played through Sept. 7, when he left for a pinch runner after singling against Boston. Four days later the Yankees said his season was over. Jeter wound up hitting .190 (12 for 63) with one homer and seven RBIs. When asked if he has given any thought about this possibly being his last season, Jeter replied that hes focused on one year at a time.Braves Johnson not resting on 2013 successATLANTA Chris Johnson is taking the same approach to the 2014 season he used one year ago, when he was fighting for a starting job. Dont try telling Johnson hes a lock to start at third base for the Atlanta Braves after finishing second in the National League in hitting in 2013. Johnson is determined to work even harder this offseason to prove he deserves the job. Hard work paid off last season, when Johnson hit .321, finishing second in the NL to Colorados Michael Cuddyer. Johnson said he doesnt dare change that successful approach, so he was back at Turner Field on Friday, just as he has been every day of the informal pitchers camp the last two weeks. Im really superstitious so Im trying not to make it any different, Johnson said. Im trying to come into camp trying to win a job. Thats my mentality, just because I want to continue to progress and have a real good year. Im trying everything to keep my mind on the same path as last offseason, so thats why Im here. Im trying to stay on that path as much as possible. One year ago, Johnson was expected to share playing time with Juan Francisco. Johnson quickly won the job outright, and Francisco was traded to Milwaukee on June 3. Associated PressIn this March 11, 2012, file photo, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and third baseman Alex Rodriguez run wind sprints before their spring training baseball game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. Walker, Spieth lead at wet Pebble Beach event Associated PressPEBBLE BEACH, Calif. The wind and the rain arrived Friday, perhaps a prelude to a nasty weekend. Leave it to a pair of Texans Jimmy Walker and Jordan Spieth to thrive in Crosby Clambake conditions at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Walker made some tough par saves and wound up bogey-free at Spyglass Hill with a 3-under 69. Spieth was down the coast at Monterey Peninsula, where he called the birdie on his final hole the best of his life. Hes only 20, but it was a proud moment. They were tied for the lead going into the third round, one shot to par ahead of Hunter Mahan. The slight advantage would go to Walker, who was at 9-under 135. Already a two-time winner this season, Walker next goes over to Monterey Peninsula, the easiest of the three courses in the rotation. Spieth was at 9-under 134 and headed to Pebble Beach, which can be brutal in nasty weather. And the forecast for today was not particularly pleasant. Along with a three-club wind on the exposed sections of all three courses, steady rain began coming down sideways toward the end of the second round. There was about a 75 percent chance for more rain today. Spieth caught Walker for a share of the lead on the 187-yard ninth hole, which typically requires a 6-iron. He watched Kevin Chappell hit first with a 3-iron, and the ball rolled back down off the front of the green. Spieth hit a hybrid to about 20 feet and made the putt, with the wind blowing it to the right at end. Mahan had a 68 at Spyglass Hill, with half of his six birdies on the par 5s. He was at 8-under 136.Allianz ChampionshipBOCA RATON Michael Allen matched the Champions Tour record with a 12-under 60 in the Allianz Championship, finishing the first round with an eagle and 10 birdies. The 55-year-old Allen became the ninth player in the history of the 50-and-over tour to shoot 60 and the first to accomplish the feat on a par-72 course. Allen opened on the 10th hole and played each nine in 6-under 30 on The Old Course at Broken Sound. He has five tour victories, winning the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic and Greater Hickory Classic last year. Scott Dunlap was second at 63, and Tom Lehman, Chien Soon Lu and Wes Short Jr. shot 65.Australian Ladies MastersGOLD COAST, Australia Cheyenne Woods, Tiger Woods niece, shot a 6-under 67 for a share of the second round lead in the Australian Ladies Masters, while eighttime winner Karrie Webb was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard. South Africas Stacy Lee Bregman also shot 67 to match Woods at 10 under at Royal Pines in the event sanctioned by the European and Australian tours. Webb, the winner last year, signed for a par instead of a bogey on the 12th hole. The Australian star shot 75 after opening with a 74.Joburg OpenJOHANNESBURG Italys Edoardo Molinari and Scotlands Craig Lee shared the second-round lead in the Joburg Open at 11 under, and Englands David Horsey was a stroke back after a 63. Molinari had a 4-under 68 on Royal Johannesburg and Kensingtons longer, tougher East Course, and Lee shot 67 on the West. Horsey also played the West Course. South Africas George Coetzee had a 68 on East Course to match Horsey at 10 under. The final two rounds will be played on the East Course.

Halloween Car Decorating Contest, Kids Costume Contests! All of our cars have transmissions, usually between the engine and the rear or front wheel drive mechanisms. Most of us dont even think about or understand what is happening as our automatic transmission does amazing things in flawlessly shifting through the gears as we accelerate with the gas pedal. With a manual transmission, we physically have to depress the clutch and manually shift through the gears, which is usually a lot of fun for those of us who choose to buy a car with a manual transmission. Then there is the semi-automatic transmission, which seems to come standard on some of the newer cars today, where you can manually shift the gears without having a clutch. Transmissions have many uses in machinery where there is a power source and a power transmission system, which provides controlled application of the power. Webster defines transmission as an assembly of parts including the speedchanging gears and the propeller shaft by which the power is transmitted from the engine to a live axle. Often transmission refers simply to the gearbox that uses gears and gear trains to provide speed and torque conversions from a rotating power source to another device. The most common use is in motor vehicles where the transmission adapts the output of the internal combustion engine to the drive wheels. Such engines need to operate at a relatively high rotational speed which is inappropriate for starting, stopping and slower travel. The transmission reduces the higher engine speed to a slower wheel speed, increasing torque in the process. The transmission generally is connected to the engine crankshaft via a flywheel, clutch or fluid coupling partly because internal combustion engines cannot run below a particular speed. The output of the transmission is transmitted via a driveshaft to one or more differentials which, in turn, drive the wheels. While the differential may also provide gear reduction, its primary purpose is to permit the wheels at either end of the axle to rotate at different speeds (essential to avoid wheel slippage on turns) as it changes the direction of rotation. As mentioned above, the need for a transmission in an automobile is a consequence of the characteristics of the internal combustion engine. Engines typically operate over a range of 600 to about 7,000 revolutions per minute (rpm), while the cars wheels rotate between 0 to about 1,800 rpm. One of the car clubs of which I am a member recently visited Monster Transmission Inc. in Brooksville for a tour of their facilities. Their business is to service transmissions and sell remanufactured ones to customers around the world. They have an amazing operation at their shop and provided a very interesting and informative tour, even for the ladies in the group. All of their remanufactured transmissions are mounted in vehicles at their shop and thoroughly tested before being shipped to customers. The transmissions in todays cars require very little maintenance and are highly reliable. So, the next time you are accelerating in your vehicle, just think about what is happening in that piece of equipment that is effortlessly shifting the gears and saving you gas in the process. Car jokeBogged down in a huge, mudfilled hole in the road, a motorist paid a passing farmer $5 to pull him out with his tractor. Once back on dry ground, the grateful motorist said, If thats all you charge, Ill bet youre pulling people out of the mud day and night. Cant, the farmer said, at night I haul water for the hole.

The mysterious, amazing car transmission Ken McNallyCAR CORNER Streak for cash SEANARNOLD CorrespondentSuper Late Models, Street Stocks, Pure Stocks and regular Figure Eights take to the track for the first time this season, joining Mini Stocks and Modified Mini Stocks on todays racing card at the Citrus County Speedway in Inverness. Late Models kick off events with qualifying runs at 5:30 p.m., followed by heat races for Pure Stocks Mod Minis, Street Stocks and Mini Stocks, starting at 6 p.m. There will also be fan participation racing after intermission, before the six features. In November, Inverness own Herb Neumann Jr., a participant in last Saturdays Sprint opener, secured his seventh 14th overall Late Model points championship at Citrus since 2001. Seven different drivers, including Neumann, Wayne Anderson, Mike Bresnahan, Scott Grossenbacher, T.J. Duke and second places Dale Sanders, collected one feature win apiece over the seven-race season. Jason Waller, of Inverness, and Karlin Ray, of Floral City, made Pure Stocks the most closelycontested class of the season at the top of the standings, as Waller, behind seven feature wins, edged out the then-16-yearold Ray by five points. Curtis Flanagan, winner of 24 Street Stock features over the past couple of seasons, had an easier time than his friend Waller in notching his fourth points championship in Street Stocks last year. The Inverness driver was weighing whether to bring back his No. 3, built by Herb Hoefler in 2005, after getting his 50th win with it in last Novembers finale. In Figure Eights (Street and Pure Stocks), Jimmy Kruse, a St. Petersburg driver who entered racing just four years ago, is expected to contend for a third consecutive points championship. With a heat and (wire-to-wire) feature win in last Saturdays Mod Mini season opener, Dunnellons Clint Foley took a step toward winning a fourth championship in six years at Citrus, if he chooses to compete regularly. Shannon Kennedy, of Floral City Animal Clinic, beat out Tim Scalise in taking last weeks Mini Stock feature. Scalise, of Lutz, won the heat and finished one place ahead of Jerry Daniels in the feature. While on the cusp of scoring a top-three finish in the Minis feature, young up-and-comer Mark Patterson suffered a broken engine rod in his No. 22. Hes expected to return with a new engine this week. Super Late Models run 50 laps, and the remaining features are 25, unless reduced due to car count. Heats are eight laps. Grandstand admission prices are $13 for adults and $9 for students (age 12-17), seniors and military personnel with ID. Children age 11 and under are $5 (children under 42 inches in height are free). Family passes (two adults and two students or children) are $30. Pits, skybox and annual passes are also available. See www.citruscountyspeed way.com for more information. Four racing divisions start today SEANARNOLD CorrespondentAaron Williamsons day last Saturday didnt exactly unfold the way he thought it would when he woke up that morning. I went to the shop in the morning and started working on the car like I normally do on Saturday mornings when I dont race, he recounted after winning a Sportsman feature for the second time in as many trips to the Citrus County Speedway. I texted my wife, just kidding around, saying we can still make it to Citrus tonight. She said, well, if weve got the money, lets go. That was at about 1:20 p.m., and we live two hours away. Williamson, who lives on the south end of Lakeland, changed the gear and loaded up for the trip, and he, his family and his No. 13, with its Chevy Camaro chassis, later pulled into the speedway at 5 p.m., just in time to sign up for the nights race. The change of plans paid off. After initially expecting his next race to be in New Smyrna today, the 28-year-old won his heat, before holding his lead wire-to-wire in the feature. It also turned out to be a better choice than racing at the Showtime Speedway in Pinellas Park, which initially promised a $1,000 payout to the winner of its Sportsman event, and is closer to Williamsons home. (Showtime) charges $30 apiece for my two kids to get in, and (Citrus promoter) Gary (Laplant) doesnt, Williamson said. So I came here. On top of that, I had a buddy over (at Showtime), and they didnt get 14 cars, so they cut it to $400 to win. If I wouldve went over there and they told me that, I wouldve come over here. Rather than chasing points championships, Williamson likes to go where the money is. I found it more fun in racing to not compete for a title, he explained. Im probably just going to go to whatever racetrack has the best payouts, and who treats me right. Thats a lot of it. I dont mind driving the distance, the only difference is diesel fuel in the truck. Still, hes won four championships, including back-to-back Southern Sportsman Series titles in 2004 and 2005, and one last year at Bradentons Full Throttle Speedway. When he chooses to race at Citrus, hes almost always a factor. He left with six topthree finishes and two feature wins in eight trips to Inverness in 2013. On the last racing night of the year in November, he collected a $1,200 payout for winning the first Sportsman State Championship, a non-points event started under Laplant. I say its been more fun to run without running for championships, Williamson said with a smile, but when you win enough races, then you end up winning championships. Williamson doesnt know what a life outside of racing is like. His father David, who won a couple of championships at Auburndale, got him into racing at age 10. Ive been in it my whole life, he said. Its all I can remember. Williamson said he does all the work on his car outside of major chassis work, which comes from AMF Chassis. His family owns and operates Cars Automotive, which recently added a car lot to its mechanical operations. He also gets some support from Barstow Transportation. The rest of his financial racing support comes out of his own pocket, making the payouts that much more critical for his shoestring budget. His current car, now sporting bright green, pink and white body art by designer Explosive Creations, originally came from his father, back in 2001. I won a four-cylinder bomber championship at Auburndale Speedway, and dad was building a new street stock, so he gave me his old car, Williamson recalled. From there, thats what this cars developed from. About every three years, it seems like you move up a class, whether you like it or not. The Sportsman 6-Pack 50 Series races at Citrus on Feb. 15.

He looked downright content, a speedskater who knows his legacy is secure no matter what happens in Sochi. It still really hasnt hit me that its the Olympics, Davis said during a lengthy chat in the mixed zone after his brief workout. Im still just on autopilot, man. At age 31, hell be competing in his third Winter Games at this resort city along the Black Sea. Already a two-time champion in the 1,000 meters, Davis can become the first male speedskater to pull off a three-peat in the same event. He wants the gold. Badly. Yet it wont ruin his life if he doesnt get it. You train really hard. You try really hard to win, Davis said. If you win, great. If you dont, you tried your best. You really cant beat yourself up about it. There are so many people that train all their lives to win something or even just to get here, and a lot of people come away emptyhanded. Ill say it again: Im very blessed to have the things that I have. What he has is impressive. In addition to four Olympic medals Davis also claimed silver in the 1,500 at both Turin and Vancouver hes one of only two men to win world championships in both sprint and allround. The other is Eric Heiden, who skated in an era with less specialization. Thats an incredible achievement, said Gerard Kemkers, a coach for the powerful Dutch team. I think Shani is one of the greatest Olympians in American history. Davis didnt always embrace that role, shying away from any attempts to turn him into a household name in the U.S. While his achievements were duly appreciated in the speedskating-crazy Netherlands, he was perhaps best-known in his own country for a feud with teammate Chad Hedrick. The dispute turned especially nasty after a race in Turin where they both won Olympic medals, prompting Davis to storm angrily off the podium, muttering same ol Chad on his way out the door. America still thinks in terms of Bonnie Blair and Dan Janzen and Eric Heiden, Kemkers said, referring to three U.S. greats who came before Davis. There has been quite a bit of controversy surrounding Shani because he stood up for things, which didnt help his P.R. It overshadowed a little bit the legacy he has as a skater. No longer. With Hedrick in retirement, Davis has become the undisputed leader of the U.S. team, even agreeing to skate team pursuit at the Olympics for the first time. Away from the ice, hes been much more eager to take a starring role at Sochi, taking part in countless promotions for NBCs coverage of the Winter Games back home. A sometimes-prickly relationship with the media has been completely amiable in the lead-up to Sochi. It comes with some responsibilities. Its a light I havent been in before. But I embrace it, Davis said. Im happy to be considered one of the faces (of the games) with all the other Winter Olympians who are here and held in that category. I guess Im in good company. I cant complain about it. Speedskating begins on Saturday with the 5,000 meters, an event that Davis skated at the last two Olympics but dropped from his program this time. His first event is Monday, the 500, but that is merely a tuneup for his two signature events. His eyes are focused firmly on Wednesdays 1,000, but hes looking at it through the eyes of an Olympic veteran. I have the experience, so it doesnt hit me the same way it did a few years ago, Davis said. Im really content. I know what Im here to do. Im trying my best to do that. In due time, well see what happens. Associated PressUnited States speedskater Shani Davis trains Wednesday at the Adler Arena Skating Center during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
Im not sure if I believe in a soul mate, at least not in the way the Urban Dictionary describes one: A person with whom you have an immediate connection the moment you meet a connection so strong that you are drawn to them in a way you have never experienced before. As this connection develops over time, you experience a love so deep, strong and complex, that you begin to doubt that you have ever truly loved anyone prior. Your soul mate understands and connects with you in every way and on every level, which brings a sense of peace, calmness and happiness when you are around them ... the most significant and satisfying thing you will experience in your lifetime. Wow. Does that sound like your marriage or current relationship? If not, dont despair. Here are some tips to finding your soul mate that I found on the Internet (so you know it must be true): Believe you have a soul mate out there somewhere. Make your life love-friendly. Gently say goodbye to non-soul-mate love. Clean your house for love your emotional, spiritual and physical house. Dont go looking for love; it will come to you. Get out there and be actively available. Dont obsess over finding your soul mate. Finally, dont confuse chemistry with destiny. The person who wrote these tips added, wisely, When you meet someone youre intensely attracted to, everything in your body could be telling you that this is your soul mate, but that could be hormones and lust talking. Remember that your soul mate could be someone who you already know, but never even considered romantically. The skeptic in me thinks this is pretty much hooey and these soul-mate-finding experts probably have a book or seminar theyre hawking. However, I also know that some couples are, or at least appear/claim to be, perfect complements of each other, yin and yang and all that. Maybe. I dont know. I watch a lot of Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry? on Investigative Discovery and the stories all start out with I thought we were soul mates but end up with one person being a bigamist, thief or otherwise crazy. But heres the problem I see: If your current marriage isnt as soul-matey as you thought it would be, then bailing when things get tough or boring is an easy excuse to leave and look for your real soul mate. After all, he or she is out there somewhere waiting for you. And if youre human in a relationship with another human, despite what you or I might want to believe, no human can fill up all the empty spaces. Eventually, all human relationships at times disappoint. One of the Internet soul-mate gurus suggested those who are searching should honor the yearning, that the time of longing and yearning for love is the most powerful time. It means love is so close you can feel it, and there is a part of you recognizing that there is something missing. There is something that drives us to want to love deeply and completely, in a relationship we feel is meant to be. That, I actually agree with. St. Augustine said, Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in thee. King Solomon said God has set eternity in our hearts, that were born with a knowledge of him. Our hearts know something someone is missing. Theologian and mathematician Blaise Pascal called this longing and knowing a God-shaped vacuum. If its God-shaped, then logically only God can fill it. As the soul-mate expert said, There is something that drives us to want to love deeply and completely, in a relationship we feel is meant to be. If thats the case, then to answer my own question about believing in soul mates, Id have to say yes, I do believe and Ive found mine. Actually, he found me. His name is Jesus.

Bill Nye the Science Guy and the head of the Creation Museum have debated whether evolution or the Bible better explains how everything began. Nye said it takes magical thinking to believe the universe was created in six days only 6,000 years ago. He said scientific dating methods show that there are rocks and fossils, not to mention distant stars, far older than that. Creationist Ken Ham responded that dating methods are fallible and that both sides have the same evidence but interpret it differently. Ham said the only witness to how things began is God, who explains it all in Genesis. Bill Nye said the Bible is not a science book and shouldnt be taught as such in schools, but Ham said it also takes faith to believe in evolution. The hours-long debate took place in a sold-out 800-seat auditorium in the Creation Museum in northern Kentucky. Merry Christmas bill passes Indiana Senate INDIANAPOLIS Indianas state Senate has unanimously passed a bill to allow the celebration of Christmas and other holidays in its public schools. The legislation would allow schools to decorate with Nativity scenes or menorahs if paired with a secular symbol or one from another religion. Legislation also would permit schools to teach the history of winter holidays and to give holiday greetings, such as Merry Christmas. Ten other states have proposed similar laws. The Indiana branch of the American Civil Liberties Union says the bill would be unconstitutional and would allow public schools to endorse religion. The bills author, state Sen. Jim Smith, its necessary because Christmas is under attack. Group appeals lease for Jesus statue HELENA, Mont. The Freedom From Religion Foundation is asking the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn a federal judges decision that allowed the U.S. Forest Service to renew a 10year permit for a statue of Jesus that was placed on a Montana ski hill six decades ago. In its Jan. 28 brief, the group continues its argument that a permanent Catholic shrine on public land is prohibited under the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that prohibits Congress from making any law regarding the establishment of religion. In June 2013, U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen said the statue at Whitefish Mountain Resort is more often used as a meeting point and site for photo opportunities rather than a solemn place for religious reflection. Many Catholics reject sex restrictions VATICAN CITY Surveys commissioned by the Vatican have shown that the vast majority of Catholics in Germany and Switzerland reject church teaching on contraception, sexual morality, gay unions and divorce. The Vatican took the unusual step of commissioning the surveys ahead of a major meeting of bishops that Pope Francis has called for October to discuss the family. This week, German and Swiss bishops reported the results. They were surprising in the near-uniformity of responses: that the churchs teachings on sexuality, morality and marriage are rejected as unrealistic and outdated by the vast majority of Catholics who nevertheless are active in parish life and consider their faith vitally important. Despite the findings, moral theologians warned that church doctrine wont change. The other day I posted on the Chronicles Facebook page a question for discussion: Do you believe in soul mates? Why or why not? Someone replied Yes! Another said he believes God puts the person meant for you in your life, and another said, No. If theres one for me, he must be lost because I have never found him. I really think its a fairytale. I love that answer. From wire reports Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama told a non-denominational gathering of political leaders Thursday that freedom of religion across the world is important to national security and is a central tenet of U.S. diplomacy. Speaking at the annual National Prayer Breakfast, Obama cast his message as an international call for human rights, singling out countries that he said have fallen short, particularly when it comes to extending protections and freedoms to all faiths. He said some of that diplomacy is not comfortable, especially when dealing with nations that are strategically and economically important, such as China. When meeting with Chinese leaders, he said, I stress that realizing Chinas potential rests on upholding universal rights, including for Christians and Tibetan Buddhists and Uighur Muslims. In the peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians, he added, we have made clear that lasting peace will require freedom of worship and access to holy sites for all faiths. More broadly Ive made the case that no society can truly succeed unless it guarantees the rights of all of its peoples, including religious minorities, whether they are Ahmadia Muslims in Pakistan or Bahais in Iran or Coptic Christians in Egypt, Obama said. Obama also offered prayers for Kenneth Bae, a U.S. missionary being held in North Korea, and Saeed Abedini, an Idaho pastor who is in custody in Iran. Bae was arrested in November 2012 in North Korea while leading a tour group and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for unspecified anti-government activity. Supporters say he did nothing wrong. Abedini, who is of Iranian origin, has been held since September 2012 and is serving an eight-year sentence after being convicted of trying to establish a network of Christian churches in private homes. Obama and other attendees gave a standing ovation to Obamas fellow Hawaiian, pro surfer Bethany Hamilton, after she described how God transformed the loss of her arm from a shark attack into something totally amazing by giving her the ability to inspire others.

Since February is considered the month of 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 tomorrow 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 their wedding vows. At least a dozen couples from FCCI will join the Kelleys in this special service. To join the FCCI couples in renewing your wedding vows, call 352-344-1908 to confer with Pastor Ray.

Get one for bargain this monthAdult cats are available from the Humanitarians of Florida for a $10 adoption fee during February, thanks to an anonymous donor who agreed to pay the rest of the fee so that these felines can find homes more quickly.

The Path farm is coming through its best crop yet! This year, our kale was spectacular and I have listened intently to people telling me about increased energy and sometimes improved health. The winter months here have turned out to be a blessing I never thought of. The coolness of the season allows the vegetables to last much longer than in the spring. Each season we get a little better in learning about the seasons and how to farm a variety of vegetables. This year we are talking about a few new ideas that might help you and at the same time, help us. The talk is renewed about community supported agriculture. Long ago and now are not any different; people have discovered the therapy of working in a garden. In fact, this type of work is the first listed in the Bible. There will be cost savings, but I dont think that will be the only reason people want to do this. With the type of farming we do, we have taken on quite a bit of risk and some of the things that can go wrong with farming. We are also looking at our locations. I have heard several times that traveling to Hernando Farmers Market is too far. I challenge you that if you can get five members in your area to sign up for our cooperative, I will deliver. Also, my wonderful wife has put together more options and payment plans to help anyone join who might be on a tighter budget and cannot afford the initial costs. Give her a call at 352-527-6500, ext. 8. We will be starting our spring crops soon: four kinds of squash, cucumbers and peppers, just to mention a couple. As always, I will throw down one or two things I have never tried before. This is how we have developed our crops through the years and found out what grows when. Lastly, The Path will be helping a small church in Floral City get its garden started. We have made it very easy for them to do this by our methods and steering people away from the patterns of growing up North, where I assure you, the soil is much better and is not under hot sun most of the year. I would love to hear from you.DuWayne Sipper is the executive director of The Path of Citrus County, a faith-based homeless shelter.Contact him at 527-6500 or email@example.com. Healthy path? Path veggies DuWayne SipperTHE PATH HOME Special to the ChronicleFor the 10th straight year, Citrus Sertoma donated $4,000 to families in need during the Christmas holidays. Each year, there are 10 families from eight different local schools within Citrus County chosen to receive a $50 gift certificate for food purchases at a local food market. Thats what its all about, helping our local citizens in their time of need, especially during this time of the year, said Maureen Tambasco, president of Citrus Sertoma.

As well as the many groups the Citrus Sertoma sponsors within the community, they also committed to a $4,600 donation to All Childrens Sertoma Outpatient Care Center to purchase a Vivisonic Hearing device that detects hearing problems in children as young as only a few days old.

NEWS NOTES news from the Central Ridge area If there is one thing that watercolor artists strive to achieve during their career, it is the distinguished achievement of being recognized as a signature member of a major watercolor society, like the Florida Watercolor Society (FWS). This is something very special. It allows the artist to sign artwork with the accompanying tag (i.e., John Doe, FWS). Being a signature member of a watercolor society is a rare badge of successful accomplishment in the field of thousands of watercolorists. The late Dr. Bill Slinger, FWS, of Homosassa, achieved this recognition as a signature member of the Florida Watercolor Society in his 90th year. Others in the Nature Coast area that have attained this honor include Dick Krall of Inverness; German Boettcher of Inverness; Kim Shields of Inverness; Grant Lamb of Dunnellon; Joan Swetland of Spring Hill; Betty Beceden of Spring Hill; Jan Kiszonak of Hernando and Karen Heidler of Spring Hill. All of this brings us to Lynn Ferris, NWS, FWS, the demonstrator at the Feb. 14 meeting of the Citrus Watercolor Club. One should note that Lynn is a signature member of both the National Watercolor Society and the Florida Watercolor Society. She is a winter resident of Beverly Hills and spends her summers in Berkley Springs, W.Va. Before becoming a full-time watercolorist, she worked as both a commercial and architectural illustrator. Lynn is also a show judge and instructor, teaching classes and workshops. Her limited-edition prints have been featured nationally by the French Creek Sheep and Wool Company and her watercolor The Group appeared as cover art on the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Lynn has participated in many one-person and juried shows, where her work has received numerous awards. The details in Lynn Ferris watercolors flow seamlessly with the artists sense of color and tone. Theres a newness and comfort to her work. One feels refreshed for having seen it, yet completely at home as if youve known this work all of your life. Solo shows include Leesburg Center for the Arts, Monongalia Arts Center and This Century Gallery in Williamsburg, VA. She was the subject of a feature article in Watercolor magazine, published by American Artist. Lynns work is also included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach. For samples of her work, visit www.lynnferris.com. Nature Coast residents and lovers of watercolor art are in for a treat on the weekend of Feb. 22 and 23. Watercolor artists from the Citrus Watercolor Club will present their annual show and sale at the Ellie Schiller Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. The show features many talented member watercolor artists from the local area. This is the 22nd year the club has cooperated with the park to conduct the show and sale. For more information about the CWC meeting or to become a member, call Rhonda Hancock at 352796-0247 or Heather Doherty at 352-873-1656, or visit www.citrus watercolorclub.com.

Special to the ChronicleAs we approach Valentines Day, we think of all those we love, including all of our four-legged family members. It is good to also remember those waiting in rescue to get the chance to be loved by a new family. As they wait for this opportunity, they do require food, shelter and care. The Humane Society of Citrus County will stage a Cram the Van event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday to help in replenishing some much-needed supplies for the no-kill animal shelter, located on the west side of Inverness at 751 S. Smith Ave. Volunteers will be collecting donations in front of the Beverly Hills/Lecanto Walmart Super Center at 1936 N. Lecanto Highway (at the intersection of county roads 491 and 486). Some of the items needed are: Pedigree dry dog food for large breeds Pedigree adult small-bite dry dog food Pedigree canned dog food Pine Sol (blue or purple works best for us) Liquid dish soap Liquid laundry detergent Large-size puppy training pads Large-size kitchen trash bags The Humane Society of Citrus County is a nonprofit organization and all donations are tax deductible. Those who would like to donate any of the items but cannot stop by Saturday are welcome to drop them off at the shelter.

C6SATURDAY, FEBRUARY8, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Yesterday, we saw what would have been an effective atypical pre-emptive opening bid. If the opponents are going to produce wild leaps into the stratosphere, you need to know how to defend yourself. Look at the North hand in the diagram. South opens one spade, and West intervenes with three diamonds, a weak jump overcall. What should North do? Yes, Wests bid would normally feature only a six-card suit, but he was swayed by the unfavorable vulnerability and also wondered if his side might make three no-trump. After a weak jump overcall, responder, with support for partners major, should bid one level higher than originally intended. Here, a three-spade response would promise a normal single raise. With his actual game-invitational limit raise, North correctly jumped to four spades. And if his hand had been even stronger, he would have cue-bid four diamonds, which would have said nothing about his holding in diamonds. Against four spades, West led the heart five. East won with his king and cashed the ace, West dropping a sneaky two. When East led another heart, South was not sure what to do. Discarding risked Wests ruffing with a low trump. Then the spade ace would have been the setting trick. Eventually, South ruffed with his spade king, and West inwardly smiled when he followed suit. However, when West took the next trick with his spade ace, he was endplayed. He tried the club eight, but dummys nine forced out Easts queen. South won with his king, drew trumps, and claimed four spades, one heart (dummys queen), one diamond, three clubs and a diamond ruff in the dummy.

She has five children (including my father) who do absolutely nothing for her because they say Grandma is a mean, nasty person, which she is. Grandma feeds off of negativity and gossip. Nothing is ever good enough, and she blames everyone else for her own failings. I go out of my way to do things to make Grandmas life easier, and it is either never good enough or she just doesnt care. It has brought me to tears. I have threatened to move out numerous times, but then Grandma walks on eggshells until the dust settles, and everything goes back to the way it was. I am at the end of my rope. But I also have a conscience and am afraid that if I move out, her children will rip her out of her home and slam her into an assisted living center, and that would be the end because no one else would step up to take care of her. Frustrated Charles Dear Charles: You are a caring grandson, but please dont let Grandma blackmail you into a situation that is no longer tenable. Does Grandma have money to pay a caregiver? Would your aunts and uncles be willing to help foot the bill in order to have Grandma cared for without their direct involvement? Look into the cost of hiring someone to live in the home, which Grandma may prefer. But also check out senior housing, including assisted living options. Many of them are excellent places that offer activities and friendships. You can visit often. Grandma undoubtedly will complain about the change, but she will get used to it and may even come to like it. You deserve to have a life, too. Dear Annie: Could you please inform your female readers that we are tired of seeing their behinds because they refuse to buck a fashion trend that has been forced on them? I am talking about hideous low-cut jeans. Unless you are model thin, its hard to look good in these jeans. And if something hangs over, theyre not for you, period. Do women have no sense anymore? It is disgusting to see someones behind hanging out of their pants. Young women have been misled to think that jeans that sit at the natural waist and dont show your assets are mom jeans, which is supposed to make them sound undesirable. But listen up: Its a marketing ploy to sell more jeans. Women need to wake up and take a good, hard look at themselves. Sick of Seeing It in Indy Dear Sick: The desperate need to look young and hip afflicts a great many women, regardless of size and age. (Men, too.) The reason marketing works is because people believe the hype. If you are convinced you look terrific with your rear end hanging out, you will continue to wear jeans that achieve that. But we agree they are not flattering. Of course, we still cant figure out why young men think it looks cool to have to hold up their pants with one hand because otherwise they would fall to their ankles. To each his own. Dear Annie: Two years ago, we took our 10-year-old grandson, a voracious reader, to visit the National Archives in Washington, D.C. As we proudly looked intently at the Declaration of Independence and the Emancipation Proclamation, my grandson looked up at me and asked, What does it say? Why would the people of this country think it is worth millions of dollars to protect documents that our children cannot read? Surely our schools can find a way to teach children to read historic documents that were carefully written in beautiful cursive writing. And then we, the grandparents, can go back to writing birthday notes to our grandchildren.
