Marco Rubio called Monday for overhauling the nations higher education system to close an opportunity gap between Americans with and without advanced degrees. The Florida Republican said the reforms should include state-accredited alternatives to four-year colleges, incomebased terms for repaying college loans and new standards for accrediting free Internet courses. Those with the right advanced education are making more money than ever. But those who are not are falling farther and farther behind, Rubio said at an education forum at Miami Dade College. The result is an opportunity gap developing between haves and have-nots, those who have advanced education and those who do not. And if we do not reverse that trend, we will lose the upward mobility that made America exceptional. Rubios proposal comes as Republicans seek an alternative to President Barack Obamas agenda to bolster the middle class, some of which touches on the same higher education issues. The affordability and access plan also is part of the GOPs effort to step past the elitesounding tone of some of Mitt Romneys statements during his 2012 presidential bid. At the height of that race, footage was released showing Romney suggesting that 47 percent of Americans view themselves as victims who wont take responsibility for themselves. The price tag for tuition and fees at public four-year colleges is up 27 percent beyond overall inflation over the last five years, according to the latest figures from the College Board. The average annual cost for a full-time student at a four-year public college is now $18,390, including room, board and tuition. Subtract grants and tax benefits, and it drops to $12,620. More than 70 percent of the national college class of 2012 had loan debt at graduation, and their debt averaged $29,400, according to the most recent figures from the California-based Institute for College Access and Success. Rubio is touting several private-sector solutions. At the heart of his proposal are alternatives to a four-year college degree.

See RUBIO/ Page A2 NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVERAmessage to the thousands of tourists who come to the Nature Coast on vacation each winter hoping to encounter manatees in the wild: Use your manatee manners, please. That means: No poking, prodding, stabbing, kicking, feeding, riding, holding, chasing, grabbing, feeding or standing on. Theyre not puppy dogs, said Stacy Dunn, manatee advocate and local tour boat captain. People treat them like theyre pets and that scares the animals out of the warm waters, which is their habitat. Theyre here for their survival. From November to April, manatees come to the relatively warm springs to feed and escape the cold gulf water, congregating in places like Three Sisters Springs and Kings Springs. To help keep manatees safe from overly excited and curious humans, the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge sends out teams of volunteer manatee watchers daily, both in the water with kayaks or standing on the boardwalk at Three Sisters Springs. The program started back in the 1990s with about 30 volunteers, mostly in canoes. Kayaks came later, said Ivan Vicente, visitor services specialist for the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge. Today, there are about 75 volunteers, mostly retirees. A shift is four hours, with two shifts a day. Theyre out there looking for injured or distressed manatees, but mainly theyre out there to educate boaters, Vicente said. Also, they address violations by talking to people and asking them to stop. They document incidences, take photos or video and turn it into law enforcement. For the most part, just their presence, someone in uniform, prevents infractions, he said. Randy Loehe has been a volunteer manatee watcher for about two years. He said the biggest issue he sees when hes out is the volume of boats and the number of people all trying to get into a small area. Its not uncommon to see 100 people in the water, Loehe said. When they encounter a manatee, they get excited, and if there are a lot of people in the water sometimes a group of them will surround it, without meaning to cause it harm. He added that the local boat captains are good about teaching people what to do Manatee manners matter Volunteers educate visitors on proper etiquette for dealing with marine mammals STEPHEN E.

A circuit court judge ruled last month that transcripts of closed meetings the school board had with its attorney regarding the first lawsuit are public record, even though they may have a disastrous result for the school board in the second lawsuit.

DUI arrest Thad Donahue, 37, of Stoker Road, Menlo, Ga., at 5:28 a.m. Feb. 8 on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence (second offense). He also faces a felony charge of corruption by threat against a public servant. According to his arrest affidavit, Donahue was parked in a parking lot in Homosassa with the car still running. The deputy spotted two empty Bud Light cans on the passenger floorboard along with a glass mug in the center console that contained a brown liquid later identified by Donahue as Crown Royal. He was asked to perform field sobriety tests but refused. Donahue also refused Breathalyzer testing. While en route to the Citrus County Detention Facility Donahue reportedly made numerous threats against both the deputy and his wife. Bond $3,000. Michelle Murphy, 38, of Southeast Mayo Drive, Crystal River, at 8:03 p.m. Feb. 7 on misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence and DUI with damage to property. According to her arrest affidavit, Murphy is accused of hitting a victim on a bicycle on Northwest U.S. 19. The bicyclist suffered injuries to his left leg consisting of a large laceration, which required stitches, and several smaller cuts. Murphy was asked to perform field sobriety tests and did poorly. Tests of her breath showed her blood alcohol concentration was 0.207 percent and 0.2 percent. The legal limit is 0.08 percent. Bond $1,000. Christopher Himmel, 29, of West Highland Boulevard, Inverness, at 9:30 a.m. Feb. 8 on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence. According to his arrest affidavit, Himmel is accused of backing into a patrol vehicle that had pulled up behind his vehicle. At the time of the incident the deputy was out of his vehicle and approaching Himmels vehicle. He was asked to perform field sobriety tests and did poorly. Himmel refused Breathalyzer testing. He requested to speak with a supervisor while en route to the Citrus County Detention Facility, and spoke with a sergeant at the jail.

Its called passive interaction, where you float on the surface and let the manatee come to you if it wants to, he said. Then youre allowed to touch it. Bonnie Nemmers, coordinator for the volunteer manatee watchers program, said its important that volunteers not only be knowledgeable about manatee etiquette, but also the erosion around Three Sisters Springs so they can educate the public. An important tool for both volunteers and manatee lovers alike is the Manatee Manners series of videos available on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Website one for swimmers, paddlers, boaters and photographers that give instructions on how to encounter manatees to ensure their safety. View it at fws.gov/crystalriver. Stacy Dunn suggested county residents watch the video, too, since some of the biggest offenders she encounters are local people who think that its OK to play with the manatees because we live here. Weve got to get rid of the puppy dog mentality or well lose the privilege of swimming with the manatees, she said. Lets have some compassion for them as they try to survive here with what little bit of warm water we have left for them to survive in. Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at352-564-2927 or firstname.lastname@example.org acknowledged in her ruling. The first case involved two former Citrus High School soccer players who said their junior varsity coaches made sexuallycharged comments around them. When the players and their parents complained, the coaches are alleged to have threatened to close the program and blame the girls, according to court records. Plus, the lawsuit states, CHS officials tried to expel one girl and her sister and transfer them to school in Sumter County, based on residency claims. The lawsuit claimed retaliation against the girls for filing complaints against the district alleging violations of Title IX, the federal law regarding equal access to sports for girls and boys. The first lawsuit, filed in April 2011, was settled out of court in September 2012. Shortly after that, the girls parents William and Karen Bigge, and Wayne and Laurie Canfield filed a similar lawsuit in federal court claiming district officials also retaliated against them. Bigge filed a public records request with the school district for transcripts of the meetings school board members had with their attorney in the first lawsuit involving his daughters, according to court records. The district refused, saying it instead sought an opinion from the attorney generals office. That opinion, however, sided against the school district. Attorney General Pam Bondi said the public records law is clear: Transcripts of closed attorneyclient sessions become public once the lawsuit they are discussing ends. The law makes no exception for cases such as the one described by Citrus school district officials, Bondi said. Bigge followed the attorney generals opinion with another public records request, which was ignored. He then sued the school board, asking a judge to declare the transcripts public record. The school district argued releasing the transcripts would put it at a great disadvantage against Bigge, since his federal lawsuit uses arguments virtually identical to the first lawsuit. Thomas, in her ruling, acknowledged that point. Because the second case involves the same claims, same facts, same events, and same witnesses, the mental impressions of the boards counsel in the first case would be the same mental impressions for the second case, she wrote. However, she wrote, the first case was settled and the transcripts are public record. The school district filed an appeal Feb. 7, even though the transcripts of two school board sessions with its attorney are now part of the court record and anyone can view them at the Citrus County Courthouse. The school district has asked a federal judge to dismiss the second lawsuit. The federal district judge signed an order on Feb. 6 saying he would wait 45 days before issuing a ruling. courses evaluated and overseen by an independent accrediting board would be transferable to traditional schools and eligible for federal aid. Workers could also use their skills to earn certifications or degrees outside traditional institutions by passing new standardized tests. I want to add more options to the menu. And the more options we have, the more affordable it will be and the more people were going to be able to empower, he told the AP in an interview before the conference, presented by National Journal. Education experts have raised questions about the credibility of free online courses and for-profit colleges. Rubio, who often notes that he still owed more than $100,000 in student loans when he became a senator in 2011, said college students should be offered cost-benefit analyses comparing how much they can expect to earn in a particular field to how much they will owe after earning a degree in the subject. The Obama administration is also exploring whether to include salary data in a new ratings system of colleges that it wants to tie to financial aid. Critics in the higher education community say such evaluations are unfair and compromise schools autonomy. In addition to federal loans, Rubio called for the creation of student investment plans. Private investment firms would cover tuition costs that could be repaid later as a fixed percentage of a graduates income for a set number of years, regardless of whether that amount covers the total debt. The Republican lawmaker also called for simplifying the federal aid process and making incomebased loan repayment mandatory.A2TUESDAY, FEBRUARY11, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL 000HAFB Appointment Call 228-4975 6254 W.

Jeffrey Smith, 24, of South Incognito Point in Homosassa, was arrested Friday, Feb. 7, on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance and tampering with evidence, along with a misdemeanor charge of resisting an officer without violence. According to his arrest affidavit, a residential burglary alarm brought deputies to South Ann Point in Homosassa, where a suspicious person was reported in the area. Deputies spotted Smith walking in the area and began questioning him. While speaking with Smith they heard the strange sound of plastic being chewed coming from his mouth. Deputies requested, then demanded, that Smith open his mouth but were reportedly met with refusals until the threat of being tasered swayed him to open his mouth and spit out the contents. The plastic bag contained small glass-like shards, identified by field testing as approximately 0.9 grams of methamphetamine. Smiths bond was set at $4,500.

A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The city has a slice of prime corner real estate ready for the taking if an investor can fork over the right amount of money. City Manager Andy Houston said Monday the city has put up a sign at what used to be the Petrella property, but is now owned by the city, saying it is ripe for development. The property is the vacant lot at the intersection of Citrus Avenue and U.S.19, which has stood undeveloped for more than four decades. Yes, the property is available for development. We would like to a see it developed as a mixed-use property with maybe retail at the bottom and either office space or residential units at the top, Houston said. The city has a lot of interest in the development of the property because it is viewed as the premier or gateway property to the citys downtown area, which has lately been going through some beautification. We paid $250,000 for the property and added $15,000 of improvements, but the sale price is negotiable, Houston said. The city, which purchased half of the original property last fall, has spruced it up by removing a dead tree, installing 15 parking spaces along a neighboring wall and fencing off the rest of the property to avoid motorists from driving on it. The city is getting ready to do some light landscaping, according to Houston. Formerly known as the Waddington family property, it was sold at auction in September 2012 to Jennifer and Dr. Andrew Petrella. The Petrellas, who own the business and property next to the 2.5-acre parcel, outbid a handful of bidders and purchased the property for $360,000 plus 10percent of the auction price. However, the Petrellas later contacted the city about purchasing the property because they didnt have imminent plans to develop it. The city and the county decided to purchase it and split the property. The county purchased the east side of the property and plans to build a trailhead for the cross-town trail and maintain a wetland area. The city purchased the west side of the property to hold until a commercial developer can be found and hopefully build a signature building at the intersection. A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerA man who acknowledged to authorities that he had experienced a meth-cook blowout previously was one of two people arrested for manufacturing methamphetamines in the presence of a child and other drug charges. Travis Timothy Taylor, 39, and Tamara Susan Jury, 35, of Old Floral City Road, Floral City, were arrested Thursday after deputies were alerted to the couple burning plastic and other household garbage which is unlawful. Taylor and Jurys charges include manufacturing meth with a child younger than 16 present, possession with intent to sell and possession of listed chemicals used to manufacture controlled substances. Taylor bond was set at $160,500 and Jurys bond was $150,500. When investigators arrived at the home and went to the burn pit they observed several pieces of aluminum foil, which had been fashioned into methamphetamine boats, and a lithium battery, which had been cut open and had the lithium removed. When an investigator noticed a child in the home and already saw signs of meth manufacturing, he reportedly asked Taylor for permission to search the home. Taylor consented and told deputies he was not actively cooking anything at the time and that the ingredients of his lab were in the tool room near the garage. In the tool room, investigators found some of the following: Drano, rubber gloves, coffee filters, coffee filters that had been used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine, lithium battery casings, the waxy paper from inside the battery casings, several pieces of tubing, several pieces of tubing that had been used in the manufacturing process, Coleman fuel, film canisters that contained ephedrine, lye, two film canisters containing approximately 1/4gram of meth in each and several homemade funnels. Officials also found some ephedrine pills and more materials used in the manufacture of meth. Jury reportedly admitted to using methamphetamine for approximately a month. She also admitted to buying ephedrine and batteries on at least one occasion for the methamphetamine cook. Jury reportedly told investigators she purchased ephedrine for Taylor while living in Michigan. Taylor also spoke to investigators and admitted to have been making meth sporadically for a long time. He reportedly said it was during one of those cooking sessions that he experienced an explosion. When he was asked about his past experience with an explosion and why he thought it was a good idea to be cooking around a child, he reportedly had no answer for investigators. Taylor and Jury were arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or email@example.com.

Dogs, cats, turtles, chickens and a cockatoo were removed Feb.4 from 9050 and 9052 N. Rainelle Ave., said Heather Yates, CCSO media relations manager. Yates said the case has been forwarded to the State Attorneys Office for review to determine whether or not to file charges. Kimberly Corbin, county code compliance division director, said the two residences were condemned for structural issues and were ordered to be demolished within 10 days.Scout reservation closed for hog hunts The Southwest Florida Water Management Districts McGregor Smith Scout Reservation will be closed to the public for hog hunts today through Thursday.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Tourists could be cash crop PATFAHERTY Staff writerAgriculture could help grow Citrus County tourism. The concept of agritourism uses existing farms, U-picks, groves, dairies and related businesses to expand opportunities for visitors to the area and attract more urban tourists seeking a rural experience. It was discussed Monday by the Agricultural Alliance of Citrus County as a follow-up to the 2014 Agritunity Conference in Sumter County, which featured a keynote speaker on the topic. Some agritourism is already taking place in the county. Bill Scheiterle of Misty Meadows Blueberry Farm cited his experience with out-of-county customers. Alliance Chairman Dale McClellan said one of the challenges is that people want to come on their own schedule, which is not always convenient on a working farm. But there are things we could do to attract people, he said. We want to help tourism in the county. Scheduled farm tours were discussed as was linking agritourism to an event such as Heritage Days in Floral City. It does not have to be free; it can be a revenue source, said member Fred Clark. Agritourism is economic development. McClellan said they need to pick a date to focus on agritourism and start working to get the Agritunity Conference held in Citrus County. Dr. Philip Geist, with the Small Business Development Center, suggested contacting the Tourism Development Council to share ideas. The group will also invite back Ben Parks with the Florida Agritourism Association. He visited the alliance last summer for an update on related legislation. The group also discussed having an agriculture display at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum in Inverness. Member Jimmy Brooks cited the possibility of expanding the annual Farm-City Week event to include Inverness. The alliance is getting ready for its annual fundraiser at the Feb.28 kickoff party for the Floral City Strawberry Festival and the Citrus County Fair, which opens March24. The alliance used the occasion to thank Muriel Turner of Levy County for serving as interim extension director. Turner said BJ Jarvis of Pasco County has been hired as the new director and will start this month.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or firstname.lastname@example.org. CareerSource opens STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleChristine Mestropich, a placement specialist with CareerSource in Lecanto, assists Robert Forbs in getting plugged into the system and looking for work. New name, new place for Citrus County job-seekers PATFAHERTY Staff writerJob-seekers can access a variety of employment-related assistance at a new one-stop location in Citrus County. Services are provided under a new name, part of a statewide united brand affecting Floridas 24 workforce development regions. CareerSource Citrus Marion Levy, formerly CLM Workforce Connection, had an open house at the new location Monday. The facility, which replaced the Inverness site, is just off West Gulf-to-Lake Highway at 683 S. Adolph Point, Lecanto, about one mile east of the intersection of State Road 44 and County Road 491 and can be reached by public transit. The office is bigger with an expanded resource area with twice the space and number of computers. It features a classroom/conference room and designated training lab with computers. Applicants can opt for staff assistance or self-service. According to Rusty Skinner, chief executive officer of Career Source Citrus Marion Levy, the location was about five months in the works and due to market conditions represents some cost savings for the agency. He expects the site will work better for both the customers and staff. Geographically, where we are right now is much better, based on population shifting as Citrus County has grown, he said. Its much more centrally located. Its balancing the costs and where our customers are, said CareerSource spokeswoman Laura Byrnes. The grand opening of the new location coincided with the new CareerSource brand, which took effect Monday. Skinner said the new brand, mandated by a 2012 law, was about a year and a half in development and is based on surveys of jobseekers, employers and work force managers. Were hopeful with the new brand and trying to create a different image in terms of whom we serve, he said, that we can attract a lot more young college graduates into the system. Skinner explained it also reflects the contemporary aspects of job-seeking, which has evolved with technology far beyond the traditional submitting of rsums and application process. Todays employers are looking for skills, he said. Job search today is not drop a rsum in the pile; its doing research.

Thinking about the end and imagining life in a different way is something that humans have always done, Murphy said in a university release. Murphys class will discuss biblical texts, review popular novels and watch clips from movies such as Shaun of the Dead and Days Later. Students also will discuss hypothetical ethical and theological problems that people could encounter in a post-apocalyptic world. The prevalence of apocalyptic stories in various media gives us a window into what people are worrying about, what they hope for and how they imagine they would react in the face of a cataclysmic event, Murphy said. In the same way, we can read the Book of Revelation ... and learn what ancient Jewish and Christian groups were concerned about. Kevin White, a senior from the Detroit suburb of St. Clair Shores majoring in political science and religion, said it is important to incorporate popular culture into classroom settings because it helps to give students a way to connect with subjects of study. Studying ancient biblical texts isnt most peoples cup of tea, he said. But, when you add zombies, it instantly becomes everyones cup of tea.Childrens author writing book about beloved dogNEW YORK A National Book Award finalist is writing a childrens story based on a reallife Labradoodle.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Michelle Obama said Monday that a pledge by the construction industry to hire more than 100,000 veterans by early 2019 is a huge deal that, besides doing right by former service members, will help companies grow and boost the U.S. economy for decades to come. Mrs. Obama announced the commitment by more than 100 construction companies and associations at a conference sponsored by the Department of Labor and Joining Forces, a nationwide effort that she and Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Joe Biden, launched nearly three years ago to rally the U.S. around military veterans, active duty service members and their families. This is huge. Its a huge deal, the first lady said, noting that many of the companies are direct competitors. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez said the announcement marked the first time that an entire industry has pledged to focus on providing jobs and training opportunities to military veterans. I know that you all have made this commitment not just because it is the patriotic thing to do, which it is, Mrs. Obama said, addressing the construction firms and associations represented at the conference. Youve done this because you know that it is the smart thing to do for your businesses. Nearly 400,000 veterans and their spouses have been hired under Joining Forces since the initiative began in 2011, including by such household names as Disney, Starbucks, UPS and Walmart, Mrs. Obama wrote Monday in an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal. Perez, in an interview before the conference, said hed like to see other industries adopt the same approach of ensuring that the hiring of veterans is always part of the mix and is really engrained in the DNA of the business model. Mrs. Obama and Perez noted that the construction industry is one of the fastest growing in the country. Last month, the industry had its strongest single month of job growth in the past four years, adding 48,000, according to government data. Nearly 180,000 construction jobs were created in the past year, Perez said. About 1.5million such jobs are forecast to be added through 2022. Mondays announcement is also timely because of the coming end, later this year, of the U.S. combat role in Afghanistan. Thousands of troops will be returning home and many will be looking for jobs to help support their families. Unemployment among service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, also known as the 9/11 generation, has declined steadily during the past two years and stood at 7.9percent in January, versus an overall unemployment rate of 6.6percent. President Barack Obama often says these veterans shouldnt have to fight for a job after they have fought for their country on the battlefield. Taking a long view, Mrs. Obama said the industrys commitment is also about more than just putting highly skilled, highly motivated individuals into good jobs with good salaries. Its also about providing our companies with the very best workers so that they can keep growing, and they can keep creating even more jobs and strengthening our economy for decades to come, she said. Jacobs Engineering, Cianbro, the Home Builders Institute and the Associated General Contractors of America are among the dozens of participating companies and associations.

a wooden paddle. On separate occasions, Blount said he took 20, 40 and then 60 licks. I read this thing and I had to kind of chuckle because I thought to myself if anybody sat and thought about what 20 licks would do to you, then 40 licks and then 60 licks, youd be in a wheelchair for the rest of your life, Massingill said. I was there a long time and I went down there three times. The whole time I was there, I never knew anybody who got over five or six licks. Ill tell you the truth. I mean this thing has really been blown out of proportion. Massingill grew up in St. Petersburg and was at Dozier in separate sentences in 1965 and 1966. He got out in 1967. I was there a year and then I went home and went back and stayed the rest of the time, Massingill said. I got out once and I got put back in there for just not doing the right thing like not going to school. Probably a lot of the same stuff he (Blount) did. Earlier this month, the University of South Florida Department of Anthropology announced the recovery of bones, teeth and numerous artifacts in 55 unmarked graves at the former state schools for boys. The search for graves is continuing and using cadaver dogs to assist in locating graves that date back to the early 20th century. Many dozens of older men who call themselves the White House Boys, for the white building where they say they were severely beaten as boys by adults, tell the same story of extended whippings that drove their clothing into their wounds where the cloth stuck. But Massingill said he does not identify extreme punishment as part of his experience at Dozier. I witnessed a lot of stuff when I was there, but nothing ever as bad as that, Massingill said. I never got any more than five or six licks. Massingill was punished in the White House three times, where he gripped the metal-framed bed like the other boys said they did. At one time, he also worked in the kitchen building, near the White House, where he could see people entering and leaving. I never saw anybody theyd beat 40 or 60 times and turn them out the door and make them walk home with blood-soaked pants, Massingill said. They brought you there and they brought you back to where they picked you up in a state car. He never knew of anybody who died while he was there. In fact, Massingill said his reform school time was not too bad. There were a lot of good people there, if you went there and tried to do what you were supposed to do, he said. I learned a lot about the chicken business. They were pretty self-sufficient. Massingill got to know the last staff member still alive, 90-year-old Troy Tidwell, who was also called the one-armed man because hed lost an arm but could still wield the strap. He punished Massingill once. Twice when Massingill got to go home, Tidwell took him to the bus station. Tidwell did not threaten him to stay quiet about what went on at Dozier, Massingill said. Both times he put me on the bus, he told me I hope you learned a lesson from this and I wish you all the luck in the world and try not to ever come back, Massingill said. He wasnt a bad guy. He did a job he was hired to do. I went back there even after I was married because there were some people who were good to me there. Yet, Massingill acknowledges discrepancies, like the number of unmarked graves that the USF team has found. I had understood that there were about 25 or 30 kids buried out there. Somebody once said, no thats an old pet cemetery. And we know now that its far more than that, Massingill said. Black boys likely had a harder time than white boys, he also acknowledges. Massingill got to look inside some housing for black youngsters and found some of the walls had metal rings set in them like in the old prisons where they would shackle you to the wall, he said. I didnt see them in the ones on the white side. Was that to keep them from running or keep them from getting to the white side, I dont know. Massingill tried to run away once. Worst thing to do was try to run, he said. Youd hear the dogs bark. Mostly newbies would try it. I tried it when I first went there and I knew better than to ever try that again. Thats when I went for three or four licks. But even with some similar experiences, Massingill cant verify other former students testimony about abuse. The contradiction even came out in 2010 when the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigated allegations. According to FDLEs report: The former students were consistent in stating that a wooden paddle or leather strap was the implement used for administering punishment. The area of disagreement among former students was the number of spankings administered and their severity. When another Florida newspaper in 2009 published a special report about the abuse investigation, Massingill said he called its author to tell about the time he spent there and that he didnt think it was that bad. The only thing he did was contradict everything I said, Massingill said. He basically told me he wasnt interested in my side of the story. He wanted blood and guts. On the one hand, whatever happened occurred a long time ago. All those people are long dead, Massingill said. If they could sue old Mr. Tidwell, what would they get? He doesnt have anything and hes almost dead himself. These were boys whose parents had not controlled them. Most of these kids, like myself, they werent sweethearts when they were sent there, Massingill said. The year after Massingill left Dozier, in 1968, Gov. Claude Kirk toured the facility and found poor conditions and overcrowding. Corporal punishment officially was stopped that year. Changes may have been coming during Massingills stints at the facility. It could have been different in his era, he said of Blount, who was at Dozier two decades before Massingill. Im not calling the man a liar; Im just saying that some of the truth may have been stretched here a bit.

Every patient is unique. There is beauty in every individual. I believe the purpose of Botox is to enhance the natural beauty inherent in each individual and maximize a more youthful appearance. WHY BOTOX: Botox offers instant gratification to those who undergo treatment to improve the physical attractiveness and shapeliness of their face. Botox not only helps to diminish wrinkles, it can be utilized to aid in wrinkle prevention as well. Finally, Botox is a temporary cosmetic procedure (lasting 3 to 6 months), making it a great option for those not ready to commit to more permanent solutions. 000H8XQ WELCOME TO BOTOX SPA A Personalized Artistic Approach To Botox Ask us about your personalized Botox and Dermal Filler options Call the office for a NO CHARGE CONSULTATION Lynn Swanson M.S., A.R.N.P.

Interestrates 000HBQ8 US stocks end slightly higher in quiet trading Associated PressNEW YORK The stock market ended up more or less where it began Monday in a quiet day for investors who had little economic data or company earnings to react to. Analysts said the market is likely to remain in a holding pattern until traders hear from Janet Yellen in her first testimony before Congress since becoming head of the Federal Reserve. After spending most of the day lower, the Dow Jones Industrial average turned slightly higher in late trading and closed up 7.71 points, or 0.1 percent, at 15,801.79. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 2.82 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,799.84 and the Nasdaq composite rose 22.31 points, or 0.5 percent, to 4,148.17. The tech-heavy Nasdaq was pushed higher by Apple, which rose $9.31, or 2 percent, to $528.99. Apple rose after the activist investor Carl Icahn said he has dropped his shareholder proposal to force Apple to increase its stock buybacks. Apple recently disclosed it had bought $14 billion of its own stock. Yellen, who started her term as head of the central bank this month, is scheduled to testify before Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday. Yellens comments will be closely watched, especially after recent disappointing economic news and the Feds decision to further reduce on its monthly bond purchases. Despite recent volatility in the market, investors believe that Yellen will likely continue her predecessors plan to continue winding down the Feds economic stimulus program. Last week, the Fed cut its bond purchases to $65 billion a month. We should expect more volatility as the Fed transitions away from its (economic stimulus plan), said Doug Cote, chief investment strategist at ING Investment Management. Investors got a respite from a recent deluge of earnings and economic reports. Wall Street remains in the middle of earnings season, when the bulk of the nations publicly traded companies report their quarterly results. Only two out of the 55 companies announcing this week reported their results Monday: the toy maker Hasbro and the industrial conglomerate Loews Corp. Beechcraft said airplane deliveries up in 2013WICHITA, Kan. Wichita manufacturer Beechcraft Corp. is calling its first year since emerging from bankruptcy protection a success. The company said it saw a 64 percent increase in deliveries, with 205 planes delivered in 2013 compared with 125 the previous year. Deliveries of the King Air aircraft rose 52 percent to 135 planes last year. Deliveries of piston aircraft rose 94 percent to 70 planes. The company also delivered 34 of its T-6 military trainers. CEO Bill Boisture said in a news release the company saw its highest booking rates for plane orders in years and had solid revenue from servicing commercial and military planes. Beechcraft emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in early 2013. The sale of Beechcraft to Cessna Aircrafts parent company, Textron, is expected to close this year.Starbucks: Dumb Starbucks store not OKLOS ANGELES A mysterious shop named Dumb Starbucks is serving coffee again in Los Angeles after drawing weekend crowds that waited in a line two blocks long. The line Monday was far shorter, however. The store resembles a Starbucks with a green awning and mermaid logo, but with the word Dumb attached above the Starbucks sign. Starbucks said its trying to contact the people responsible for the Hillhurst Avenue store, which was announced in a Feb. 7 tweet under the handle @dumbstarbucks. The Seattle-based coffee chain said its legal team is working on identifying the stores owner. Spokeswoman Laurel Harper said the store is not affiliated with Starbucks and, despite the humor, the store cannot use the Starbucks name.

Breyers, Ben & Jerrys, Edys and Yuenglings: Which thing is not like the others? Trick question. They all make ice cream. The supermarket freezer aisle got a little more crowded Monday as Yuengling a name more associated with ale, porter and lager than vanilla, chocolate and strawberry took its place alongside the familiar brands. Beer drinkers up and down the East Coast know Yuengling as a 185-yearold family-owned Pennsylvania brewery whose lager flows from taps in countless bars and restaurants. What they might not realize is that Yuengling used to make ice cream, too, starting in 1920 at the dawn of Prohibition. Now Yuenglings Ice Cream is back after an absence of nearly 30 years, available at hundreds of stores in Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware and New Jersey. Additional stores and markets could be added later. I was brought up with it, said Bob Pomian, picking up a $4.99 carton of chocolate marshmallow at a store in Pottsville, a few miles away from the brewery. If its the same ice cream I ate 50 years ago, then Id be happy with it. This incarnation of Yuenglings Ice Cream is a separate company with no connection to the brewery. But it has already capitalized on that famous name. Yuenglings initial run of 100,000 quarts rolled off the production line ahead of schedule because of high demand, fueled by nostalgia and the popularity of the eponymous beer. Associated PressYuengling's Ice Cream is back after an absence of nearly 30 years.
OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2014 Where is the outrage?Your editorial of Jan. 28, and Mike Wrights interview with Bill Grant, attorney for the Citrus County Hospital Board of Trustees, illustrates the clear distinction between private entities which pay from their own pockets their attorney fees, and public officials who have their attorney fees paid by the taxpayers. The trustees should be ashamed for spending millions of dollars in attorney fees to continue their dispute over control rather than provide the health care for which the institution was created. If members of the board were personally responsible for their attorney fees rather than levying taxes for such payment, I can assure you there would have been a settlement of the power struggle a long time ago. The trustees are appointed by the governor on recommendation by Sen. Charles Dean, and the citizens of Citrus County should let them know their tax money is levied to provide health care for the needy not attorney fees. Concerning Mr. Grants response to Mike Wright that the proposal from Mr. Stillwell regarding the appointment process for an interim CEO, that is out of the question: Mr. Grants summary rejection of such a proposal makes one wonder who controls the board of trustees. It seems to me that the continuation of a lease for the hospital instead of an outright sale will only encourage future litigation regarding control and further diversion of taxpayers money for attorney fees. Now is the time for all citizens of Citrus County to tell the members of the board of trustees the gravy train stops now. Why is there no outrage on this subject?Carl A. Bertoch, Esq. (retired) Crystal River At a time when Republicans have Democrats playing defense on Obamacare, jobs and the economy, the GOP is inexplicably ceding political ground to the Democrats on an issue that can only provide more votes for that party and possibly lead to a permanent Democratic majority. Meeting in Cambridge, Md., recently for what they called with no little irony a retreat, Republican leaders signaled they are open to considering some sort of legal status for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants who have overstayed their visas or violated American law to get here. But exactly who are the illegals? According to a study conducted by the Urban Institute, Mexicans make up over half of illegal immigrants 57 percent of the total, or about 5.3 million. Another 2.2 million (23 percent) are from other Latin American countries. About 10 percent are from Asia, 5 percent from Europe and Canada, and 5 percent from the rest of the world. Republicans have convinced themselves that Hispanics are a natural constituency for their party because they are hard workers, religious and familyoriented. Statistics from the Pew Research Center suggest the opposite may be true. According to Pew, 53 percent of babies born to Hispanic immigrants are to single mothers, about twice the rate of whites. As for Republican family values, Pew found a majority of Hispanics, 53 percent, support same-sex marriage. As a great many illegals are poor, their strain on the welfare, health care and education systems is considerable. In a recent column, Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative political analyst, cited an American National Election Study that asked Hispanics their views about the free market vs. big government solutions to problems. Schlafly noted, Only 17.9 percent of Hispanics responded the less government the better, and 85.3 percent said a strong government involvement is required to handle economic problems. This is not the profile of a future Republican voter. The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) said illegals now make up 3.5 percent of the U.S. population, or about 10.5 million people. According to CIS, Nationally, illegal immigrants and their U.S.-born children account for 9.9 percent of all persons in poverty, compared to their 4.9 percent share of (the) nations total population. With lower incomes, illegals rely more on welfare programs. CIS says in Texas, percent of illegal households collect some sort of welfare, with percent using food assistance and 41 percent using Medicaid. In California and Illinois, reports CIS, percent use welfare. California, which has the largest number of illegal aliens, predictably has the greatest burden. In Los Angeles County alone, according to a CBS Los Angeles report, welfare and other benefits by the end of last year cost an estimated $650 million just for the native-born children of illegal immigrant parents. L.A. County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich told CBS Los Angeles: When you add the $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for health care, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion a year. Hospital closings in California remain a major concern. As Examiner.com reported recently in a story about the economic burden to taxpayers posed by illegal immigrants, In 2003, the American Southwest saw 77 hospitals enter bankruptcy due to unpaid medical bills incurred by illegal aliens. This country needs comprehensive immigration reform, whether that means maintaining a secure border or outlining a standard of economic sustainability for immigrants. Taxpayers cannot continue to bear the economic burden of illegal immigration. The Obama administration has promised immigration reform; the Republican Party has promised it, but partisanship and politics keep both sides miles apart. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) remains skeptical that any immigration measure will pass the GOP-led house this year, claiming that a distrust of the president runs deep with Republicans. And while both sides dither, the taxpayer continues to pay ... and our schools, hospitals and welfare system continue to sag under the weight of millions of illegal immigrants who chose not to take the legal route to citizenship. If Republicans fail to come up with a workable immigration plan, they will simultaneously help Democrats who rely on the Hispanic vote and lose Republican votes. As Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz told Breitbart News, they could also fail to achieve their major goal for 2014: winning a Senate majority.Readers may email Cal Thomas at tcaeditors@ tribune.com.

That wise observation from poet Maya Angelou characterizes the rocky relations between Citrus County government and the cities of Crystal River and Inverness. Policymakers and management staff of all three entities have remonstrated in public and to theChroniclethat they are open to working together and want to cooperate, but that the other side just isnt responding to their overtures. The Board of County Commissioners chairmen for two years in a row have put better relations with the cities on their goal lists. But here we are still hearing from the cities that they arent getting the respect and consideration that should be accorded to partners. A recent example is the furor in Inverness over the fire services MSBU. The county didnt act according to accepted protocol, the city complains; it never came to the city to talk about plans or discuss concerns the way it had with a previous MSBU. Instead, the county just instituted the MSBU and told the city, This is the way its going to be. On the west side, ill will erupted when a county commissioner created and presented a revitalization plan for Crystal River without consulting anyone in the city about it beforehand. Its not a partnership when one partner gets to make all the rules, or when the others feel theyre being treated like the little brother who needs to be told what to do. On an individual level, employees of the three entities may be working well together, but at a policy and management level, its not meshing. This is a familiar refrain: The cities complain about the county making decisions that affect cities without consulting them first. The county complains about the state making decisions that affect it without prior consultation. The state complains about the federal government making decisions that affect states without consulting them or giving them a say in things. In Citrus Countys governance landscape, the cities should be partners, not little brothers, and the county isnt doing a very good job of working with them. Some substantive differences of approach and philosophy may separate the entities, but those should be the focus of constructive discussion, not miffed ultimatum-flinging. Its Business 101 consult the stakeholders on policies and actions that will affect them. When people participate in decision-making, they feel ownership in the result and are much more likely to support the shared goals. THE ISSUE:Communications still rocky between the county and the cities.OUR OPINION:Make this a top priority to avoid splintering the county.

They all have and while any of them Republican, Democrat or whatever are on vacation, they are still working. So that is really digging the bottom of the barrel with this cartoon today. But what can you expect from guys like that.Who exactly supports medical corridor?I am disappointed that one architect and proponent of the medical corridor is a Tampa attorney. Has the county commission spoken with local medical leaders about the need or use of such a corridor? Private practitioners may want more choice when locating. Also, has the commission spoken with HCA about its plans for Allen Ridge or use of a medical corridor?A more sensible vision for Port CitrusPort Citrus could be a reality if it were approached in a sensible way. If it was a marina with hotel and amusement accommodations where large private boats could dock and most boats could use it as a refuge during storms and hurricanes, it would make sense and I think it would fly.No responsibility in Citrus SpringsI would like to know who is responsible for the streets turning in to Citrus Springs Boulevard.

Things change; so should weResponding to Fred Millers Use two feet while driving (Jan. 17): with much respect for my elders, herein lies my two cents. I purchased my first automatic transmission equipped vehicle in 2005, begrudgingly, due to back problems. I learned to drive in my dads Willys Jeep, raced oval track stock cars; owned and operated semi-tractors; was a certified instructor and CDL-A qualifier; and, believe it or not, it is not only safer and smarter to use the right foot for both acceleration and braking, but it is the law. Perhaps Im wrong, but I doubt it. Should you take a drivers test and use the left foot to brake the vehicle, you will fail. Its curious that Mr. Miller claims 70 years behind the wheel and always used both feet. I guess there were no clutches, no drivers education, and no laws until the 1960s when I learned to drive. The left hand in their pocket reference at least afforded muchneeded laughter; but again, keeping both hands on the steering wheel is not just a suggestion but commonly abused by many. Comparing professional NASCAR and the Grand Prix racers to wellseasoned drivers on a public road, in the passing lane holding up traffic, failing to signal, and having the left foot anywhere besides flat on the floor (hovering just a hair off the brake pedal) is like comparing Elizabeth Taylor to the local swamp hog! I wonder how Mr. Miller could possibly know what causes curb-jumpers or other vehicular accidents without witnessing them. I got a bit lost in all the references to seconds and feet when screeching to a stop with the faster foot; and, I suppose the military stoplight test he took decades ago must not have been given in a vehicle with a standard transmission. Maybe drivers back then had three feet; one for each pedal. Human beings age, reflexes are not as quick. (Drivers license) renewals for people 60 or older should require a physical behind-thewheel driving test. Not an around-the-block quickie, but a genuine pull-intotraffic, change lanes, parallel park, back-up, turn-left-at-a-stoplight driving test. Recently, I had to submit to a complete Department of Transportation physical exam to renew my CDL-A license. Its required because driving isnt a right; its a privilege, regardless of age. My reflexes arent as good as any so I use extra caution and one foot on the brake and throttle (the left foot is just an ornament since theres no clutch). When we think we know it all, are above the law because we have many years experience, and believe we are in the same world we lived in many years ago, its time to turn in our car keys and use those two feet properly walking.Joanie Welch InvernessOPINIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, FEBRUARY11, 2014 A11 000HD2G Alistair W.

Jane Goodall a frequent flyerJOHANNESBURG Jane Goodall, who turns 80 this year, knows how to work a crowd. In a packed auditorium, the elegant primatologist from Britain whooped like the chimpanzees she first studied in Tanzania in the early 1960s. She hugged an academic just like, she said, chimps do. She talked about her crush, as a romantic little 10-yearold, on Tarzan, the fictional figure raised by apes. What did he do? He married the wrong Jane, Goodall lamented to laughter on Friday at the University of the Witwatersrand, whose officials wished her a happy birthday. Her birthday is actually April 3, and Goodall said she was perplexed by the hoopla. Goodall is an environmental activist, traveling 300 days a year to speak for those species, as one admirer put it, who cannot speak.

Comedians said the gridlocked highways looked more like a zombie apocalypse than the Souths bustling business hub. On Monday, before a single drop of freezing rain or snow fell, Georgia Gov.

Perama has one of the highest jobless and poverty rates in Greece. World BRIEFS Bombers blow up selves Associated PressBAGHDAD An instructor teaching his militant recruits how to make car bombs accidentally set off explosives in his demonstration Monday, killing 21 of them in a huge blast that alerted authorities to the existence of the rural training camp in an orchard north of Baghdad. Nearly two dozen people were arrested, including wounded insurgents trying to hobble away from the scene. The fatal goof by the al-Qaida breakaway group that dominates the Sunni insurgency in Iraq happened on the same day that the speaker of the Iraqi parliament, a prominent Sunni whom the militants consider a traitor, escaped unhurt from a roadside bomb attack on his motorcade in the northern city of Mosul. Nevertheless, the events underscored the determination of the insurgents to rebuild and regain the strength they enjoyed in Iraq at the height of the war until U.S.backed Sunni tribesmen turned against them. The militants are currently battling for control of mainly Sunni areas of western Iraq in a key test of the Shiite-led governments ability to maintain security more than two years after the withdrawal of U.S. troops. While the Iraqi army has been attacking insurgent training camps in the vast desert of western Anbar province near the Syrian border, it is unusual to find such a camp in the center of the country, just 60 miles north of the capital. The discovery shows that the terrorist groups have made a strong comeback in Iraq and that the security problems are far from over, and things are heading from bad to worse, said Hamid al-Mutlaq, a member of the parliaments security and defense committee. The militants belonged to a network now known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an extremist group that recently broke with al-Qaida. The ISIL, emboldened by fellow fighters gains in the Syrian civil war, has tried to position itself as the champion of Iraqi Sunnis angry at the government over what they see as efforts to marginalize them. Reports detail pilots heading to wrong airports Associated PressWASHINGTON At a time when a cellphone can guide you to your driveway, commercial pilots attempt to land at the wrong airport more often than most passengers realize or government officials admit, according to an Associated Press search of government safety data and news reports since the early 1990s. On at least 150 flights, including a Southwest Airlines jet last month in Missouri and a jumbo cargo plane last fall in Kansas, U.S. commercial passenger and cargo planes have either landed at the wrong airport or started to land and realized their mistake in time. A particular trouble spot is San Jose, Calif. The list of landing mistakes includes six reports of pilots preparing to land at Moffett Field, a joint civilianmilitary airport, when they meant to go to Mineta San Jose International Airport, about 10 miles to the southeast. The airports are south of San Francisco in Californias Silicon Valley. This event occurs several times every winter in bad weather when we work on Runway 12, a San Jose airport tower controller said in a November 2012 report describing how an airliner headed for Moffett after being cleared to land at San Jose. The plane was waved off in time. In nearly all the incidents, the pilots were cleared by controllers to fly based on what they could see rather than relying on automation. Many incidents occur at night, with pilots reporting they were attracted by the runway lights of the first airport they saw during descent. Some pilots said they disregarded navigation equipment that showed their planes slightly off course because the information didnt match what they were seeing out their windows a runway straight ahead. Youve got these runway lights, and you are looking at them, and theyre saying: Come to me, come to me. I will let you land. Theyre like the sirens of the ocean, said Michael Barr, a former Air Force pilot who teaches aviation safety at the University of Southern California. Using NASAs Aviation Safety Reporting System, along with news accounts and reports sent to other federal agencies, the AP tallied 35 landings and 115 approaches or aborted landing attempts at wrong airports by commercial passenger and cargo planes over more than two decades. The tally doesnt include every event. Many arent disclosed to the media, and reports to the NASA database are voluntary. The Federal Aviation Administration investigates wrong airport landings and many near-landings, but those reports arent publicly available. FAA officials turned down a request by The Associated Press for access to those records, saying some may include information on possible violations of safety regulations by pilots and might be used in an enforcement action. Military pension bill advances in SenateWASHINGTON The Senate has taken the first step toward approving legislation that restores full cost-ofliving increases to pension benefits for military retirees under age 62, although its unclear when the measure may pass. Mondays vote was 94-0 to advance the bill over an initial hurdle. As drafted by majority Democrats, the $7 billion, 10-year cost of the legislation would add to the deficit. Republicans want cuts elsewhere in the budget to prevent that from happening. The measure would reverse one part of a budget bill that cleared Congress late last year. Under the provision, cost-of-living increases in pension benefits for military retirees under age 62 would be held below the rate of inflation beginning in 2015. Veterans groups have strongly protested the change.Another delay in laws employer requirementWASHINGTON Angling to avoid political peril, the Obama administration Monday granted employers another delay in a heavily criticized requirement that medium-to-larger firms cover their workers or face fines. In one of several concessions in a complex Treasury Department regulation of more than 200 pages, the administration said companies with 50 to 99 employees will have an additional year to comply with the coverage requirement, until January 1, 2016. For businesses with 100 or more employees the requirement will still take effect in 2015. But other newly announced provisions, affecting technical issues such as the calculation of working hours, may help some of those firms. More than 90 percent of companies with 50 or more employees already cover their workers without the government telling them to do so, but the debate has revolved around the potential impact on new and growing firms. Most small businesses have fewer than 50 workers and are exempt from the mandate. However, employer groups were also uneasy with a requirement that defines a full-time worker as someone averaging 30 hours a week.Email shows effort to shield bin Laden photosWASHINGTON A newly released email shows that 11 days after the killing of terror leader Osama bin Laden in 2011, the U.S. militarys top special operations officer ordered subordinates to destroy any photographs of the al-Qaida founders corpse or turn them over to the CIA. The email was obtained under a freedom of information request by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch. The document, released Monday by the group, shows that Adm. William McRaven, who heads the U.S. Special Operations Command, told military officers on May13, 2011, that photos of bin Ladens remains should have been sent to the CIA or already destroyed. Bin Laden was killed by a special operations team in Pakistan on May2, 2011. McRavens order to purge the bin Laden material came 10 days after The Associated Press asked for the photos and other documents under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act. Typically, when a freedom of information request is filed to a government agency, the agency is obliged to preserve the material sought even if the agency later denies the request. The email that surfaced Monday was the first evidence showing the actual order. In a heavily blacked-out email addressed to gentlemen, McRaven told his unnamed subordinates: One particular item that I want to emphasize is photos; particularly UBLs remains. At this point all photos should have been turned over to the CIA; if you still have them destroy them immediately or get them a blacked-out location. UBL refers to bin Laden.

RISAK CorrespondentEducation is what matters to Lizzie Rinaldi. Which is why on Monday she officially committed to attend Nova Southeastern University, an NCAA Division II school in Fort Lauderdale. The soccer standout at Citrus plans to study in the pharmaceuticals department. When shes not in school, shell put her talents on the pitch to use to try and cure what ails the Sharks. She has an ability to see the whole field and can communicate that, said Citrus coach Mark Cassidy. Landing Rinaldi should benefit a program that needs help. NSU was 5-10-1 overall last season, posting a 1-7-1 mark in Sunshine State Conference play; in 2012, the Sharks went 4-8-3 overall, 3-3-2 in the conference. Of course, there was a question where Rinaldi would play. A standout keeper, Cassidy asked Rinaldi to switch positions midway through last season to fill in at center midfield. The Hurricanes needed help there and Rinaldi could provide it, plus they had a solid backup keeper in Catlyn Marks. Thats the hardest decision I made, Cassidy said. But if we had 11 Rinaldis we would have been great. She really helped Catlyn Marks; their relationship made it work. Theres no doubting Rinaldis ability at either position.

The Citrus senior boys weightlifter is seeking a gold medal and a state title this year at the state meet April 25 in Kissimmee. Last year, he took third place at the state meet. He had a personal-best 325-pound bench press in his first meet of the year Monday at the Citrus High School weight room. He had a 265-pound clean and jerk for a 590-pound total, to win the 169-pound class. McDow, who played nose guard for the Canes football team, hopes to earn an academic scholarship and attend the University of Central Florida next year. This (lifting) is one of my favorite things to do, McDow said. I am always trying to do better. I come in three times a day. I lifted since I was in middle school. I like the competition. He probably has the best technique I have ever seen, Citrus coach Jim Haeser said. His work ethic. He is in here every day. His Dad, Kevin, also attended Citrus High. McDow has a 4.4 weighted grade point average. He takes college courses at College of Central Florida.Citrus wins meetThe Citrus boys won the meet with 78 points.

These are regional semifinal games; the winner will advance to the regional final, also known as the state quarterfinals. In the recent past, certainly the last decade or so, Citrus-based teams have for the most part been overmatched when going against those from larger cities. But this year, it could be different.

Rion Brown finished with 14 points for Miami (12-12, 3-8) while Tonye Jekiri chipped in 15. Ian Miller scored 13 for Florida State (14-10, 5-7) in his first game back from an ankle injury. Devon Bookert scored 17 and Aaron Thomas had 16 in the loss. The Seminoles have lost 6 of 8. The Miami victory was just its second in its last eight games while the 77 points were the most scored since an 84-69 win against Texas Southern in the fourth game of the year.West Virginia 102, No. 11 Iowa St. 77MORGANTOWN, W.Va. Remi Dibo scored a career-high 20 points to lead West Virginia to a 102-77 victory over No. 11 Iowa State, the Cyclones most lopsided loss of the season. Juwan Staten added 19 points and Eron Harris and Terry Henderson each had 16 for the Mountaineers (15-10, 7-5 Big 12). Iowa State (18-5, 6-5) had five players in double figures, led by Georges Niangs 17 points. The Cyclones fell behind by double digits midway through the first half and trailed by as many as 32 points late in the game. West Virginia hit a season-high for points and improved to 2-1 amid a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents heading into a matchup Saturday at No. 19 Texas.No. 17 Virginia 61, Maryland 53CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. Joe Harris scored 19 points and No. 17 Virginia stretched its winning streak to eight games by beating Maryland 61-53 in the Terrapins last visit as an ACC rival. Malcolm Brogdon added 14 points and Akil Mitchell had 13 for the Cavaliers (20-5, 11-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who continued their best start in conference play since the 1981-82 team opened 12-1. Seth Allen scored 15 points and Dez Wells had 12 for Maryland (1411, 6-6), which had won three of four. The Terps and Cavaliers were tied at 35 when Harris scored on a drive. After a block by Maryland, Justin Anderson soared at the other end to block a shot by Marylands Roddy Peters near the rim and saved the ball. He started a fast break that moments later was capped by Harris 3-pointer from the right corner, arousing a crowd that had grown quiet by the tight ballgame. A dunk by Darion Atkins and Brogdons 17-footer pushed the lead to 44-35. Associated PressWest Virginias Nathan Adrian, right, rebounds over Iowa States Melvin Ejim during the first half Monday in Morgantown, W.Va. The Mountaineers stunned the No. 11 Cyclones 102-77. Syracuse still unanimous No. 1Syracuse is a unanimous No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for the second straight week while SMU moved into the Top 25 for the first time in almost three decades. The Orange (23-0) received all 65 first-place votes from the national media panel Monday. Arizona, Florida, Wichita State, San Diego State and Villanova remained second through sixth. Wichita State (25-0) is the only other unbeaten team in Division I. Kansas moved up one spot to seventh and Duke jumped three spots to eighth. Michigan State and Cincinnati round out the Top Ten. Wisconsin and Ohio State, Nos. 21 and 22, both returned to the rankings after a one-week absence. SMU, which beat then-No. 7 Cincinnati last week, moved in at No. 23, the Mustangs first ranking since the next-to-last poll of 1984-85, a season they were ranked as high as No. 2. Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Gonzaga fell out of the Top 25. See Page B3 for complete poll.From wire reports
midfield, and she recorded two shutouts as a keeper. At center midfield, she scored four goals and collected five assists as Citrus posted a 10-11-2 overall record. For Rinaldi, there is no real decision. I really like playing keeper, she said. I feel more comfortable with it than playing in the field. Asked to name what she considered her strengths, she quickly replied, Communication, then added, and reaction. Both are necessary commodities for a position like keeper, particularly at the college level. But then again, Rinaldi has plenty of experience playing against top-notch talent. Shes a yearround player, also participating with the Ocala Lightning, a team in the Florida State Premiere League. I picked my school for the academics, Rinaldi said, naming 10 contacts from schools around the country. Thats whats important. But I train a lot and my club team got me ready for this. Although Rinaldi has said what position she plans to play at NSU, Cassidy is less certain which spot shed be better suited for. She just brings so much, he said. She has a vast knowledge of the game, and she can take that knowledge from her head to the field. Which means her anticipation is extraordinary, helping make her an exceptional player whatever position shes at.SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE task at hand doesnt seem to be a problem for this team. Last Thursdays win over North Marion is a prime example. Citrus did not play its best game by any measure, but what the Canes did do was execute Hamiltons game plan. The result: a 46-18 victory. That same strategy, according to Hamilton, will be implemented again tonight at Eastside, which eliminated Crystal River in its regional opener last Thursday. We went over the game film, Hamilton said. Theyre a team that pretty much mirrors North Marion. Theyre a little more talented, but they like to play giddyup-and-go. Of course, we wont do that. Well make them play offense. Hamilton dictated the pace of the game against North Marion, his team falling back into its 2-3 zone defense instead of applying the pressure it had used so successfully all season. That made the Colts shoot long jumpers that missed badly, and allowed Citrus to take an early lead it never surrendered. Still, Eastside 12-10 overall this season does have more weapons available than the Colts. The Rams are led by junior Anikeyawna Barber, who led them in scoring (12.7 points a game) and rebounding (9), and was second in steals (2.2). Jasmine Thomas, a senior, averaged 10 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.5 steals, with Nmandria Reynolds, a sophomore, adding 6.4 points, 2.5 assists and 2 steals and Shadayzha Bullock, a junior, collecting 5.7 points and 5.1 rebounds. Citrus counters with seniors Shenelle Toxen (13 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.2 steals), Treleasha Simmons (8 points, 5.9 rebounds) and Micah Jenkins (12.5 points, 3.1 rebounds, 3.3 steals) and sophomore Shally Morales (8.2 points, 2.2 assists, 3.5 steals). Defense remains the key for the Hurricanes, according to Hamilton. Their ability to adjust to game situations is what has made them so dangerous, and successful, this season. If we go up there and do our business and get things done, well host a Final Eight game Saturday, Hamilton said. For Seven Rivers, its a different situation. The Warriors, 15-10 overall, are limited in what they can do, with only two reliable sources for offense although those are pretty good sources in senior Alexis Zachar and junior Alyssa Gage. Those two account for a vast majority of the teams points, Gage averaging 17.5 points to go with 8.1 rebounds and 2.1 steals and Zachar getting 15.4 points with 10.2 rebounds and 2.7 blocked shots. Still, it cant be ignored that coach Gary Dreyer has managed to guide his team to a regional semifinal. But as positive as that may be, tonights opponent may represent a major negative for Seven Rivers. St. John Lutheran (16-7 overall) won the District 2A-3 title and beat the Warriors in the district title game. The Saints have more depth than Seven Rivers, led by senior Sara Poehlman (12 points, 5.4 rebounds, 4.9 steals, 4.2 assists), sophomore Jenny Bollinger (11.8 points, 9 rebounds) and a pair of seventh-graders, Brylee Bartram (9 points, 4.3 steals, 2.3 steals, 2 assists) and Essence Bell (7.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.5 steals, 3 assists). For the Warriors to survive, theyll have to get top performances from its two stars and some great defense from everyone else. Theyll have to limit their turnovers and keep Zachar and Gage out of foul trouble. A year ago, Seven Rivers went to St. John for the 2A-3 title game and came home with a win. An upset is not without precedence. While several teams and coaches said Monday that Sams sexual orientation wouldnt affect his draft status, former NFL punter Chris Kluwe, who contends his championing of gay rights led to his release from the Minnesota Vikings last year, wasnt so sure. The majority of players will be supportive of Michael Sam or just wont care, Kluwe said. Youll have isolated guys here and there who might try to make a fuss about it, but players by and large are very much, Hey, were here to do a job, were here to go out and play football. In terms of the coaching/front office side, I think theres where issues are going to arise because they are going to look at this like, Hey, is this going to cause a distraction for the team? And by distraction, they mean, Were not really OK with having a gay player on our team, we cant come out and say that, so were going to use the word distraction, Kluwe added. And unfortunately, those are the people who determine if youre employed or not. John Elway has a unique perspective running the Broncos front office now after a Hall of Fame playing career, and he said Monday hed have no problem drafting Sam. We will evaluate Michael just like any other draft prospect: on the basis of his ability, character and NFL potential. His announcement will have no effect on how we see him as a football player, Elway said. Having spent 16 years in an NFL locker room, the bottom line is that its about treating others with respect and earning that respect. By all indications, it appears Michael has done just that throughout his football career. Several coaches said if a player is accountable and a winner, being gay is a non-issue. If anybody can come in and help us win games and be successful black, white, yellow, straight, gay I dont think it matters, said new Green Bay quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. Before Sam revealed his sexual orientation, the pass-rusher was projected as a mid-round draft pick. Kluwe said reports that Sams draft stock could drop because he revealed his sexual orientation basically could have been lifted from any American sporting paper in the 1940s when Jackie Robinson was about to enter Major League Baseball. Its like weve been here before. Why do we have to keep doing the same thing? Sam will likely face even more scrutiny from opponents fans than Chargers linebacker Manti Teo did after getting fooled by a hoax involving a fake girlfriend while at Notre Dame. Former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley said Sams performance on the field and as a teammate should quickly overshadow any stereotypes about sexual orientation. I dont think he faces any challenges as a player. I dont think he faces a lot of challenges as a person, Cooley said. I think once he establishes himself as the kind of teammate hes going to be, I think everybody will accept it fine.

Passes American Mancuso in slalom leg Associated PressSOCHI, Russia Different American, same result for Maria Hoefl-Riesch another Olympic gold in the super-combined. Just as she did four years ago at the Vancouver Games, HoeflRiesch found herself trailing an American after the downhill leg before using her slalom skills to vault into first place and successfully defend her Olympic title in the dual-run event. The German finished less than a second ahead of both silver medalist Nicole Hosp of Austria and Julia Mancuso of the United States, who won the bronze. Mancuso won silver in the event in Vancouver. Lindsey Vonn had the fastest downhill time in Vancouver, but when Vonn skied out on the slalom, Hoefl-Riesch roared back to claim gold. This time, Vonn is out with an injury, and Mancuso replaced her at the top of the standings after the downhill. Also on Day 4 of the Sochi Olympics, Charles Hamelin of Canada raced to the 1,500-meter short track speedskating gold, and Viktor Ahn earned the bronze to give Russia its first-ever short track medal; Michel Mulder of the Netherlands earned the 500-meter speedskating gold; Martin Fourcade won the 12.5-kilometer biathlon pursuit; and Alex Bilodeau won his second consecutive gold medal in mens moguls.Alpine skiingHoefl-Riesch was fifth fastest in the opening downhill leg, trailing Mancuso by 1.04 seconds. The Germans two-run time of 2 minutes, 34.62 seconds was 0.40 seconds faster than Hosp. Mancuso, who finished 0.53 behind Hoefl-Riesch, won her fourth career Olympic medal in Alpine skiing. No other American woman has won more than two.Short track speedskatingAt 29, Hamelin was the oldest skater in the first final of the short track competition. The wily veteran maintained a top-three position throughout most of the 14-lap race, leaving enough at the end to defeat a loaded field, including Ahn and silver medalist Han Tianyu of China. Ahn was a threetime gold medalist for his native South Korea, but after missing the Vancouver Games he changed his name and became a Russian citizen. When he stepped on the medals podium, the mostly Russian crowd erupted in wild cheers.SpeedskatingMulders 500-meter speedskating victory earned him the title of fastest man on skates. Teammate Jan Smeekens was 0.01 seconds behind for silver, and twin Ronald Mulder took bronze in a Dutch sweep.BiathlonFourcades win earned France its first medal. Ondrej Moravec of Czech Republic took the silver, and Jean Guillaume Beatrix of France earned bronze. Ole Einar Bjoerndalen of Norway finished fourth, missing out on a record 13th Winter Olympic medal.Mens mogulsBilodeau became the Olympics first repeat winner in mens moguls.

And Finland cemented its standing as the favorite to win the bronze medal. The U.S. beat Switzerland 9-0 the biggest hockey blowout so far in the Sochi Games. Then Canada needed 50 minutes to beat Finland goalie Noora Raty, a two-time NCAA champion at Minnesota. Ive never seen them celebrate as much as they celebrated that first goal, Raty said after Canada won 3-0. That showed they were probably getting frustrated. We have never beaten Canada in our history, but this showed we are maybe closing the gap. Megan Agosta scored on a power play with 10:33 left in the third period, and Jayna Hefford and Rebecca Johnston added insurance goals for Canada. The two North American countries the only ones ever to have won an Olympic or world championship gold medal will play each other in the round-robin finale on Wednesday. Raty made 39 saves for Finland but Agostas score was followed by a Hefford goal to make it 2-0 about three minutes later. Canada took a 3-0 lead when Marie-Philip Poulin brought the puck in on a 2-on-1 and passed it to Johnston just outside the crease for the easy tip-in. We played really well for 50 minutes. We were not really troubled. Then we ran out of gas, said Raty, who made 58 saves to beat the Americans in a tournament in November but lost to them 3-1 in the Olympic opener. When you play against Canada and the U.S., we have to play for 60 minutes and you cant make any mistakes. The Finns play their preliminary round finale on Wednesday against Switzerland, which was not competitive in either game against the North Americans, getting outscored 14-0. Monique Lamoureux, Brianna Decker and Amanda Kessel scored within 55 seconds of each other in the first period to turn a scoreless tie into a blowout. It was the quickest three-goal sequence in Olympic history, with the last two coming just eight seconds apart. Kessel also had an assist on Kendall Coynes goal and another in the first period. Asked by a reporter to describe her goals, Kessel said: I cant really remember them all. Lamoureux and Coyne also scored twice for the Americans, and Molly Schaus made 10 saves in her Sochi debut. Hilary Knight and Alex Carpenter also scored for the United States, which led 5-0 after one period and outshot the Swiss 53-10. Florence Schelling, who played at Northeastern, made 44 saves for Switzerland against Schaus, of Boston College, on the morning of the Beanpot finals where their schools will play for the mens hockey bragging rights of Boston. Ive been watching them do that all year, said Schaus, who was the backup for the first game and didnt see much action in this one, either.

HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:Music at the Museum continues Thursday/C7 Katie Hendrick For the Chronicle Millions of Americans turn to eating disorders as a coping mechanism, putting their physical and mental health at risk. Local experts share how to recognize eating disorders and the importance of treatment. Kelly* was 13 years old when she first stuck her finger down her throat. The straight-A Inverness Middle School student learned about bulimia, an eating disorder characterized by binging and purging, from watching a television episode on Lifetime starring Calista Flockhart as a teenage model who threw up in jars and hid them in her closet. The goal, Im sure, was to disgust, Kelly said. And, sure, I thought the jars were gross. But my biggest takeaways were the compliments the teen received with her weight loss, how easily she did it, and that no one would have guessed she had a problem if she hadnt kept evidence. When she tried it for herself, Kelly experienced a rush by emptying her stomach. That feeling of lightness its like a high and I craved it, she said. Soon, she wasnt just throwing up after binging, but almost every time she ate. She ran water in the sink or shower to muffle the sound of retching her breakfast, prowled the halls of IMS looking for empty bathrooms after lunch, and drank two to four diet sodas a night, so she could stay up to have her final purge after her parents had gone to bed. The weight came off gradually, but steadily. I never got stick skinny, so I didnt have classmates or teachers approach me about being sick, but it was enough of a transformation to lessen my insecurities about my body, she said. Looking back, Kelly, now 29, acknowledges she was hardly heavy before she became bulimic. But she was a gymnast and the leotards she trained in could not disguise her C-cup breasts, which seemed especially Rubenesque compared to her flat-chested teammates. She also had one coach who mistook criticism as motivation. She could never master one particular move, which involved swinging under the uneven bars, lifting her toes to the bars and then rocking back to her hips.

For the ChronicleEditors note: This is the second entry in a four-part series for February about heart health awareness. Next week: Learn the benefits of quitting smoking.One of the most serious consequences of diabetes is the elevated risk of cardiovascular disease and cardiac events, said Dr R. Scott Wright, professor of medicine at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, Minn. Wrights statement speaks volumes to those who have diabetes, perhaps leading to feelings of dread in those who have diabetes and heart disease. Cardiovascular disease in diabetes is not just the result of poorly controlled blood sugar levels or hyperglycemia, the risk for heart disease goes beyond the blood sugar level. In fact, cardiovascular risk involves terms such as insulin resistance, inflammation, dyslipidemia and adiposity. Together, these factors cascade into a big mess that may end in atherosclerosis (abnormal thickening of an artery wall), plaque rupture, and cardiac events. Diabetes type 2 involves changes in how our body metabolizes fats, not necessary the fat that we eat, but blood fats, such as very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), high density lipoprotein (HDL), and triglycerides. High levels of VLDL, small and dense LDL particles, and triglycerides contribute in damaging the lining of the vascular system, liver cells, muscle cells and pancreatic cells. The high level of these blood fats is termed dyslipidemia. Dyslipidemia not only promotes atherosclerosis but also inflammation. Inflammation, in turn, promotes further atherosclerosis and plaque formation. The plaque is made up of immune response cells, fatty acids, calcium, and oxidized LDL cholesterol. The unstable plaque may occlude the artery or rupture. Insulin resistance contributes to the risk of cardiovascular disease. One of the common causes of insulin resistance (a resistance of the body to use its own insulin to correct high blood sugar) is excess weight, medically referred to as adiposity. Extra weight is not just extra stuff the body carries around, adipose tissue is organ; it produces its own hormones, has its own blood supply, and synthesizes substances that also contribute to inflammation. There are numerous medications that can treat insulin resistance and assist in treating dyslipidemia. Outside of pharmaceuticals, there are three important tactics we can employ to assist in reducing risk for cardiovascular disease. First, if you do have diabetes, strive for an A1C goal of 7 percent or less. Second, have a goal of 30 minutes physical activity most days of the week. Third, think before you eat. Have a goal of reducing how much processed food you eat. Rather than take a vitamin supplement, improve your eating habits. Cardiovascular disease and diabetes are both serious topics. Be thankful that Citrus Memorial Heart and Vascular Center is right here in Inverness. Inverness is also the home of Citrus Memorial Health Systems cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program and the diabetes center. Cardiovascular disease and diabetes are serious topics, but they dont have to be scary. Iam going to talk about dentures this week. Over the past few weeks, I have had a number of questions regarding dentures. I will write in general terms while trying to address the questions asked. I hope this is information that helps in your decisions on what to do with your dentures. There are a number of reasons a patient presents to the dentist about denture issues. They may have broken them, they may be loose, they may not be able to chew as well as in the past or they simply may not like the way they look. Dentures break for all sorts of reasons: they fall to the floor or the sink, and for those of you who have animals, they get chewed on. Most problems like these are easily fixed, either in the office or with the help of a qualified lab. If your dentures are loose, a reline is often the answer. Relines can improve the fit of a denture, especially an upper denture. A reline will have no effect on how the denture looks or chews (other than the benefit from it being more stable). This is often the best solution to a problem, and can cost less than having a new set of dentures made. If chewing has become a problem, you are likely a longtime denture wearer who has worn the teeth down from where they were originally. The only way to deal with this is to have a new set of teeth made. There are many different types of teeth available. Like anything else, denture teeth come in all ranges of quality, from basic to awesome. Your dentist will know what is best for you. You might also like to know that the quality of the tooth affects the cosmetics of your end result. While on the subject of cosmetics, though the tooth type is very important, it is only one facet that makes a set of dentures look like real teeth. A lot of denture cosmetics come from the proper height of the dentures. Some people have the typical denture look, depicted by the chin getting closer and closer to the nose you get a pouty look when your teeth are together or when chewing. The other area that makes a big difference is the fullness of your lips. As we age, there is less and less tone to the tissues around the mouth. A properly made set of teeth can help support those tissues to enhance the smile. If anything written here seems as though it applies to you, I would urge you to talk to your dentist about it. You will be surprised what dentistry can offer you in 2014. Just as in many scenarios we come across, when all things come together (in this case your dentist, their staff, their lab, the materials used and, of course, the patient) in harmony, awesome results can be enjoyed.

It is the second most common cause of death in the United States, only behind cardiovascular diseases. I want to live healthy and avoid cancer this is everyones wish. In launching the World Cancer Report 2014 earlier this year, the editors emphasized the need for prevention and highlighted lifestyle behaviors that lead to cancer, including smoking tobacco, drinking alcohol, overweight/obesity and lack of exercise. Tobacco, both smoked and smokeless, remains the worlds leading cause of cancer morbidity and mortality, the report notes. Nearly 20 percent of the worlds adult population smokes, and worldwide tobacco is killing around 6 million people each year from a variety of smoking-related diseases, the report estimates. The US Surgeon General has concluded that smoking causes cancers of the lung, nasal and oral cavities, larynx (voice box), trachea (air pipe), esophagus (food pipe), bone marrow (leukemia), stomach, kidney, pancreas, ureter, uterus, bladder and cervix. American Society of Clinical Oncology said in a statement: In the United States, 1 in 3 cancer deaths is related to obesity, poor nutrition or physical inactivity, and the problem will only increase as more countries and regions adopt the diet and lifestyles of more economically developed economies. Still under-recognized, and not acted on, is the association between drinking alcohol and cancer. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has labeled alcoholic beverages as carcinogenic to humans. The agency says cancers caused by drinking alcoholic beverages include those of the oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, liver, colon or rectum and female breast. How can you reduce your risk of cancer? 1. Avoid tobacco in all forms cigarettes, cigars, smokeless or any other form. 2. Eat right Eat your fruits and veggies; eat fiber, cut down red meat (such as beef, pork and lamb) and processed meat. Fill two-thirds of your plate with vegetables, fruit, whole grains and beans. Avoid sugary drinks. Limit consumption of energy-dense foods. 3. Move Exercise regularly; at least half an hour a day for five days a week. 4. If consumed at all, limit alcoholic drinks to 2 for men and 1 for women a day. 5. Dont use supplements to protect against cancer. 6. Be as lean as possible without becoming underweight. 7. After treatment, cancer survivors should follow the recommendations for cancer prevention. These are some of the common recommendations to reduce ones risk of cancer. It requires some discipline and effort, but it is definitely doable and practical. Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Bells palsy, named after a Scottish Anatomist Sir Charles Bell, is the most common cause of facial nerve weakness partial or complete. However, not all facial nerve problems are Bells palsy. Bells palsy is a rapid onset of unilateral or one-sided facial nerve paralysis partial or complete, and in rare case,s can be bilateral. Bells palsy leads to a condition where the person is unable to voluntarily move facial muscles that are used for gesturing. The problem can be very scary and intimidating, and psychologically can affect patients greatly because facial gesturing and facial expressions are fundamental to sense of well-being and being able to communicate and interact socially. The facial nerve is a cable that carries tens of thousands of individual nerve fibers and electrical impulses to stimulate facial muscles which allows us to laugh, cry, smile and frown, just to name a few. Other jobs carried out by the facial nerve include tearing, salivary gland function, and some sensory branches provide taste sensation from certain parts of the tongue. A couple of other small branches run some ear bone muscles and also provide sensation for the ear canal. Diagnosis is relatively obvious and very easy. It does not take a doctor to figure out what is going on, but it is much more complicated to figure out what the cause is. Bells palsy is the most common single nerve disorder and is fortunately uncommon in the general population. The incidences of occurrences ranges in several studies from 10 to 60 people per 100,000, less common in children than adults, and the exact cause is still considered unknown, but is suspected to be viral. The virus is suspected to cause swelling of the nerve, which can lead to compression and disruption of nerve impulses to the face and other structures. There are some risk factors associated with Bells palsy, and they include pregnancy and pregnancy-related problems, obesity, hypertension, diabetes and upper respiratory ailments (viral). Peak frequency seems to be somewhere between 20 and 45 years of age. Other conditions that have to be considered include stroke, brain tumors, tumors of the parotid gland, which is a salivary gland that the nerve runs through, cancer of the nerve, systemic problems such as diabetes, infectious diseases, including herpes and Lymes disease, just to name a few. It is also thought that certain congenital and genetic inherited disorders could increase the chance of facial nerve problems. Trauma, which is direct injury to the nerve, can cause paralysis as well. Most patients with Bells palsy show some recovery within two to three weeks and complete recovery within three to four months. Some studies show little difference in outcome whether treated or not, but most commonly steroids and antiviral medications are used if treatment is initiated, and that would likely occur if you presented to a doctors office. He or she would be hardpressed not to initiate some sort of treatment. Testing whether it is imaging or electrical type of testing is of little value and physical therapy and surgery have proven to be of little value as well, unless it is an unusual or complicated case. If someone lives in an area where there is a high incidence of Lymes disease that might be something one would be tested for. Some alternative medicine remedies have been studied, including acupuncture, but there have been no significant findings to recommend this type of treatment as it does not have much of an effect. Since Bells palsy and some facial nerve problems are going to resolve on their own, there are some simple things to do in the meantime. Because patients may have inability to close their eye, drying and corneal ulcerations can occur, and ultimately, have an effect on vision, so this should be addressed. Most primary care doctors can deal with this adequately and on occasions, an ophthalmologic or an eye doctor consult may be in order. Since most of the time this heals up on its own, there is usually normal facial function following resolution, but there can be some residual mild weakness, and in rare cases, total paralysis results. Sometimes there is also a spasm of the muscles causing involuntary twitching. Any new/acute episode should be seen by your primary care doctor and any incomplete or complete nerve paralysis after three months should be seen by a facial nerve specialist. This includes ear, nose and throat doctors, as well as neurologists who deal with this type of problem. In rare situations, surgery to graft and replace damaged or dead nerves and even cosmetic-like surgery can be done to restore facial symmetry. This may be necessary because of the emphasis that we put on attractiveness and the psychological, as well as physical impact it can have on a patient and affect their social lifestyle. It can even bring on depression. All the above mentioned concerns suggest if you have a facial nerve problem, you should see your primary care doctor.Denis Grillo, D.O., FOCOO, is an ear, nose and throat specialist in Crystal River.

Occasionally, we encounter problems with patients who do not seem to respond to products that are commercially available from pharmaceutical companies. When this occurs, we turn to compounding specialists to help assist in the resolution of the symptoms. Compounding specialists are pharmacists who have extensive training in and specialize in the custom compounding or manufacturing of medical products to meet specific needs. For example, various compounded formulations exist and are widely utilized in cancer patients for reasons such as nausea and vomiting, discomfort of the mouth and throat, bone pain and many other situations that arise from time to time. When looking at a problem such as nausea or vomiting, there are several different problems that can create this side effect. Compounding a custom medication allows you to combine multiple medications together to block all of the pathways that may be leading to the nausea and vomiting. Very often patients who are undergoing either chemotherapy or radiation therapy will experience discomfort of the mouth and throat region. Compounding pharmacists are able to combine multiple different agents together into a solution that covers a wide variety of causes of mouth and throat discomfort and allow patients to continue to tolerate their treatment and eat with a marked improvement in this discomfort. When looking at bone pain, compounding pharmacists are often capable of combining multiple agents that have activity in relieving bone pain, and with this combination, you occasionally see a much greater effect than that which can be achieved with commercially available products. The compounding pharmacist also allows us to have flexibility with our delivery of the medication. Through the compounding process, one is basically able to deliver most of the medications available to us today in either pill or capsule form for oral administration, a liquid form for oral administration, in a suppository for rectal administration or in a gel-type preparation that can be utilized to absorb the medications directly through the skin. By utilizing compounding, one can basically avoid the possible situation of not being able to administer a medication secondary to the fact that it is not available in a form which is tolerated by the patient. Compounding pharmacists are also able to flavor particular medications which may be unacceptable to patients so that they are more acceptable and easier to tolerate. Realistically, the majority of patients can be managed with commercially available preparations without any problem. However, roughly 5 percent of patients will have difficulty with administration, tolerance or effectiveness of commercially available preparations. The ability to compound specific preparations for these patients greatly improves their quality of life and allows them to continue to pursue their daily activities and treatments whereas without them this would be extremely difficult. Next week we will complete our series on pain and pain management with the discussion of management of pain utilizing surgical procedures and anesthesia techniques.Dr. Bennett is a boardcertified radiation oncologist.

Bulimia can hemorrhage the esophagus, damage the stomach and kidneys, lead to tooth decay (from exposure to stomach acids), cause salivary glands to permanently expand, and trigger a heart attack or stroke. Anorexia can lead to hair loss, lightheadedness, anemia, swollen joints and brittle bones. Both disorders have a correlation with an increased suicide risk. Eating disorders have no definitive cause, said Deborah A. Martin, a licensed clinical social worker in Homosassa, who counsels individuals and oversees a disordered eating support group for teens. Eating disorders are extremely complex, and could involve genetic, cultural, social, behavioral, ecological or biological factors, she said. Kelly, a self-professed overachiever and people pleaser, falls among the personality types susceptible to eating disorders, according to the American Psychological Association (and countless research studies). Her participation in gymnastics, an activity that emphasizes maintaining a light frame, as well as the disparaging comments from her coach, also likely influenced her. Internalization of a thin body ideal increases risk for developing weight concerns, and that in turn increases risk for development of bulimia, explained Crystal River psychologist Dr. Marc Kepner. That obsession with body image, which often includes an unrealistic picture of oneself, called body dysmorphia, is a major warning sign for an eating disorder. Body dysmorphia is a way of numbing up about whats bothering you and channeling it into how you look, Martin said. Instead of confronting feelings such as fear, doubt, stress, anger or shame, people with body dysmorphia often try to find peace by controlling their bodies. In my practice, eating disorders are extremely prevalent among victims of sexual abuse, she said, explaining that the patient subconsciously tries to whittle away her hips and breasts so as not to attract another perpetrator. Children whove been given up for adoption or moved through the foster care system may also turn to eating disorders to deal with abandonment issues, as might those who have lived with an addict, she said. In these situations, getting help often falls solely on the individuals, as they tend to come from dysfunctional homes, Martin said, and their families dont notice the warning signs. Kelly was lucky. Five months into her binging and purging cycle, her mother confronted her about it in the car driving home from school. Turns out, I wasnt any better at hiding it than Calista Flockharts character was, Kelly said. My mom had spotted vomit residue on a hand towel a few times and pieced it together. At her mothers urging, Kelly agreed to speak with a counselor at her church, read books about the disorder, including Mary Piphers Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls, and ultimately, drop gymnastics. I was pretty terrified, Kelly said. A lot of my identity was wrapped up in being a gymnast and I was sure Id balloon up if I stopped vomiting. What scared her more, though, was the thought of disappointing her mother. My moms prone to worrying, she said. It killed me to think I was making that worse. Spotting bulimia can be tricky. Lacking physical evidence (jars of vomit, stained towels), bulimics eating habits, in public at least, dont draw much attention. Bulimia is all about secrecy, Martin said. The binging and purging is all behind closed doors. Frequent trips to the bathroom or an obsession with privacy may be subtle indicators of a problem. Compared to bulimia, anorexia has more obvious warning signs. Anorexics are typically very underweight, sometimes to the point of emaciation. Their relationship with food appears very pained. Carefully portioning food can indicate the disorder, Kepner said. Some anorexics may suffer from lethargy or coldness due to malnutrition. Both disorders involve obsessive fears about gaining weight, which may lead to avoidance of social activities that involve food, Kepner said. Listening for self-deprecating statements or comments about calories can tip off a possible eating disorder, as can watching for changes in behavior. Kellys confession to her mother ranks among the most uncomfortable conversations of her life. But it was precisely the eye-opener she needed. Wed studied eating disorders in health class, so I knew the risks, she said. The truth, though, is that my perception was so warped that I didnt care. I figured Id rather be dead than fat. When she saw the fear in her mothers face, she realized it mattered a whole lot if I lived or died. If you suspect a loved one has an eating disorder, its paramount to speak up. Eating disorders can get out of hand quickly and can become difficult habits to break, Kepner said. Be prepared to encounter resistance or denial, he said, adding that a physician or therapist can suggest approaches that may work. Generally, early intervention can mean shorter treatment and chances of greater success. The longer disordered eating patterns continue, the more deeply ingrained they become and the more difficult they are to treat. Successful treatment for an eating disorder does not mean a cure, Martin emphasized. Theres no such thing, she said. Eating disorders are addictions. Like alcoholism, they dont go away. But unlike alcoholics, anorexics and bulimics cannot abstain from their drug food and survive. Thats why treatment, whether its staying at an in-house rehab clinic, going through counseling or participating in group therapy, is so important. It gives the patient the tools to deal with the disorder on a daily basis, she said. Kelly can attest to the cyclical nature of bulimia. Its been more than 15 years, and I still have to actively talk myself out of purging, she said. Rejected by a guy? Betrayed by a friend? Stressful day at work? My inclination is to throw up. These days, when she feels tempted, she visits online support groups, hits tennis balls, goes for a run or calls a friend. And now, the thought of a future generation inspires her to stay well as much as her parents did back in 1998. Im single, not at the point of having a family, but Id like to, she said. I dont want to be passing on my disorder to my children or leaving some man a widower.

It was Youre a Good Man, Charlie Brown, from the book, Music and Lyrics by Clark Gesner, directed by Tim Stuart, with music and choreography by Dixie Lay. It was dedicated to the late Jim Wellborn, personal colleague and friend of director Tim Stuart, who wrote in the playbill: His gentle nature and creative vision will be sorely missed, but it has taken root for exciting things ahead for the Art Center Theatre, and Jim has most assuredly had a hand in that. It was an average day in the life of Charlie Brown and all of our favorite characters paraded across the stage, delighting us in scene after scene with uncanny words of humor and deep insights. Tom Venable was Linus, Brady Lay portrayed Charlie Brown, Sharon Vetter was Sally Brown, Garry Ammermann was Schroeder, Chris Venable was Snoopy and Sandy Mosley portrayed Lucy. Throughout the play, I constantly envisioned family and friends that have demonstrated the characteristics of those loveable characters on numerous occasions along the volunteer path. Charles Schultzs Peanuts comic strip characters came to life with Linus trying to outgrow his blanket, Lucy wanting to be a queen, Charlie Brown trying to gain the affection of Sally, Lucy with her huge crush on piano-playing Schroeder, and daydreaming Snoopy. It was all about what makes us happy, truly happy. Sally gets mad at her jumprope. Charlie Brown brings out his Happy Valentines card. Charlie Brown and Lucy remind us Whatever happens, you are you. Schroeder brought us Beethoven Day (1770-1821) and the cast danced until we wanted to sing out, Hooray for Beethoven Day! Snoopy excitedly goes snooping out into the audience joined by Sally, looking for a rabbit, to our delight. True to life, Charlie Brown has a depressing day, staring dejectedly out into space. The end of Act I found Charlie Brown, Lucy and Linus writing their book report on Peter Rabbit. Act II begins with Sally and Schroeders New Philosophy and the cast in baseball teams competing to be the best. Snoopy, always the prankster, has a contemplative moment, listening to the sounds of the night. Yes, Charlie Brown and friends showed us how to be good, despite what life brings us and what is revealed through our experiences with those we meet along the way. Some of their thoughts to ponder include: To thine own self be true. Happiness is finding a pencil, having a pizza. Happiness is having a dream of your own. Happiness is walking hand in hand. Happiness is being alone, once in a while. Happiness is coming home again. Happiness is morning and evening and being together when day is through. Happiness is anywhere with you. Happiness is anyone and anything that is loved by you. Youre a Good Man, Charlie Brown what a delightful cast, what a way to sit back and thoroughly be immersed in their spirited antics, the deep and abiding insights and go away with remembrances to apply with family and friends. Thanks for the memories, Charlie Brown and Company!

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY11, 2014 C9CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.This week, we are looking at counting arguably the most important factor for success at the game. And when you are on defense, you will sometimes need partner to give you a count signal so that you can work out how many cards declarer has in the suit as in this deal. In three no-trump, declarer starts with only five top tricks: three spades and two diamonds. He needs to get the rounded suits going. So, after taking the first trick with his spade king, he leads the club king. East wants to take his club ace when South is playing his last club. So West must give a count signal. Since West has an even number of clubs, he should go high-low, playing first the five (or eight, but I like second-highest from four), then the two. This will tell East to take the second club trick. (If West has only two clubs, South has four and holding up twice would not help.) East leads back his second spade to declarers ace. South, needing to get into the dummy, leads the heart king. West plays his nine, starting a high-low with a doubleton. East, aware of what is happening, holds up his ace. South will probably try a low heart to dummys queen, but East wins with his ace and shifts to the diamond jack (or leads back the heart 10), and the contract is dead. Finally, note that at trick one, East should play his spade three, a discouraging signal denying help in spades. But a defender does not signal attitude when declarer leads a suit (except perhaps to play the top of touching honors).

A month after she returned, I was on our computer and noticed that she hadnt logged out of her email. My curiosity got the best of me, and I saw that she had traded emails with an old boyfriend. I then discovered that the two of them had met while she was at the conference. One of her last emails to him said, I still have feelings for you. On the advice of a marriage counselor, I was direct with her about it. She claimed nothing happened and that they only met for dinner and said she would never contact him again. She also was angry that I had invaded her privacy. Last year, my wife and I hit a rough patch. I got suspicious of her behavior and checked her cellphone. I saw that she had exchanged multiple texts with this same guy. Again, she claims nothing happened, the texts were innocent and I had no right to snoop. My wife knows the password to my email, and I never lock my cellphone. All of my communication is an open book. Meanwhile, she now locks her phone and has multiple email accounts. I understand the need for a little privacy, but I dont believe you should be hiding things in a committed relationship. My wife is angry that I dont trust her, and Im having trouble dealing with this. Any advice? Broken Up Dear Broken: We dont trust your wife, either. She promised not to contact this man again and then did so and hid it from you. She locks her phone and has multiple email accounts to which you apparently do not have the passwords. Worse, to deflect blame, she accuses you of snooping. There may not have been a sexual affair, but it definitely sounds like an emotional attachment. Please go back to your counselor and ask your wife to come with you. The two of you need a refresher course on how to make your marriage work and regain trust. Dear Annie: I own a small casual restaurant in a small town. People order at the counter and then take their food to a table to eat. In the past couple of years, Ive noticed more people bringing in food from other establishments and eating at our place. I dont understand why people think its OK to take advantage of an eating establishment like this. Dont they realize that the owner is paying for the incidental items they use, such as napkins? Dont they see that they are taking up space that could be used by people who are actually helping to pay the bills incurred by the restaurant? Am I looking at the situation in the wrong way? No Free Lunch Dear No: We suspect most people have no clue that this is an inconvenience to you. There are some establishments that allow people to sit for extended lengths of time without ordering, but we know of none that encourage you to bring your own food. Most restaurants require a minimum order to justify the use of the space. We suggest you implement this policy with a sign at each table and at the cash register. You may have to approach flouters with a bill, but word will get around. Dear Annie: This is for Tired, who does all the cooking for the holiday meals and then gets stuck with the cleanup, too. I have a good friend in the same situation. She is on good terms with all of her family members, but they never helped or knew what to do. So she wrote up duties, put them on little pieces of paper and placed the pieces into a nice dish. When each guest arrived, they picked out a paper and read their duty for that meal. They loved it, and she was not so worn out. DLTAnnies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
