Associated PressAny kid who ever tap-danced at a talent show or put on a curly wig and auditioned for Annie can only dream of being as beloved or as important as Shirley Temple. Temple, who died Monday night at 85, sang, danced, sobbed and grinned her way into the hearts of dispirited Depression-era moviegoers and remains the ultimate child star decades later. Other pre-teens, from Macaulay Culkin to Miley Cyrus, have been as famous in their time. But none of them helped shape their time the way she did. Dimpled, precocious and oh-so-adorable, she was Americas top box office draw during Hollywoods golden age, and her image was free of the scandals that have plagued Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan and so many other child stars parental feuds, or drug and alcohol addiction.

Using images of newspaper stories on the board projector screen and maps on easels, Adams cited a variety of topics, from the economy to the cost of the project, as reasons for his opposition. Adams was not conducting a town hall meeting. Instead, it was his portion of the Citrus County Commission meeting and after 30 minutes Commissioner Joe Meek had enough. This presentation is very, very odd, Meek said. Its the most bizarre spectacle I have ever seen while on this board. You should not filibuster a county commission meeting. Meeks comment followed CHRISVANORMER Staff writerINVERNESS No one questioned the language in the public comment ordinance, but its companion ordinance for civility and decorum drew a challenge. Whats a zinger? asked Commissioner Scott Adams at Tuesdays meeting of the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). The two ordinances were on the consent agenda to set public hearings for them on Feb. 25. Drafts for both ordinances were backup documents for the meetings agenda. The civility and decorum ordinance, which addresses behavior at public meetings and non-interference in the work of county personnel, includes the sentence: All persons shall avoid zingers designed to embarrass the target of their comments.

SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The years-long moorage battle between the city and the owner of a boat officials deem a hazard to a neighbors property appears to be coming to a conclusion. Meanwhile, Rick Suggs the owner of the controversially moored boat cannot fathom why officials are embarked on a witch hunt to remove his legally moored vessel. Monday night, the city council voted 5-0 to set aside $10,000 to have the boat towed and stored for a period not exceeding six months. The boat was found to be a hazard to an adjacent property during a code enforcement hearing Jan. 16. Suggs did not attend the hearing. The hearing officer reportedly determined that the mooring Crystal River council votes to remove boat Paula Wheelercouncilwoman wonders if city will recoup towing and storage fees.

of the boat did constitute a danger to the public and the adjacent property owner. The officer also authorized a lien on a slice of property on which the boat was tethered to a tree. Officials hope to recover the cost of the boats removal and storage after that property clears bankruptcy proceedings and is sold. The boat Sea Toy and the property are owned by Premier Construction Group LLC, of which Suggs is managing member. The group is in the midst of bankruptcy proceedings. After it was discovered that the boat was tethered to a tree within city limits, city officials concluded the 52-foot vessel falls under the purview of the citys enforcement actions, according to City Manager Andy Houston. Houston said Suggs was ordered by the hearing officer to move the boat within five days. The order also included a $250-a-day fine if the owner failed to comply with the five-day removal period. Moving the boat is expected to cost approximately $1,100 and storage at a local marina will cost $676 a month. Houston said the boat will eventually be moved dry storage later. The citys vice mayor, Ken Brown, wondered if city officials could move the boat directly to dry storage for presumably a cheaper monthly storage fee. Council member Paula Wheeler also wondered if the city would ever get to recoup the moneys spent on towing and storing the boat, but City Attorney Michael Brannigan said while he was unsure about how much the city would get at the end of the bankruptcy process, he believes the proceeds from sales of Premiers properties will come this way. City council members became alarmed in February of 2010 after learning Suggs tied the boat right next to Preston and Sarah Laycocks dock in a cove just off Kings Bay Drive. They wondered how someone could drive a pair of pilings into the bay bottom and tie up a boat without permits. Suggs claimed riparian rights the right to the use of navigable waters connected to someones land. Suggs owns a vacant peninsula that juts into Kings Bay, along with a strip of land along Kings Bay Drive. Officials, however, said according to city records, Suggs moored the boat as an extension of his property and the city requires that boat moorings only be allowed when the land includes a house. Suggs has a four-lot plat on the peninsula called Kings Bay Isle and that development plan does not include docks or a mooring area for boats. The city and Suggs have squared off in circuit court over who has jurisdiction over the area in which his boat is moored. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has not issued Suggs a permitting citation for the pilings. However, in 2011, the Citrus County Sheriffs Office issued him a misdemeanor citation for lack of registration and having a derelict vessel. This week, in an email to the Chronicle, Suggs called the city officials actions madness and that as a collective their lynch mob mentality will be exposed. He contends his civil and property rights were being violated by the city. We will avail ourselves of all legal options to protect our companys interest from all entities (and individuals) involved in the referencedimmoral, unethical and illegal behavior, Suggs added.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

BOATContinued from Page A1 Adams asking both Meek and Commissioner Rebecca Bays to seek a state Ethics Commission opinion as to whether its OK that Bays husband, Mike, sits on the Economic Development Council with Meek and both support the C.R. 491 project. This is the second straight meeting Adams has offered a similar presentation in the same way he stepped down from the dais and, microphone in hand, spoke directly to the audience while using maps to illustrate his points. Meek, who has objected to Adams statements many times in the past year, said Adams should make a motion and live with the outcome. Adams said he didnt plan to make a motion. He said he wanted to have discussion on the C.R. 491 corridor project. I have every right to do this, he said. The two began to talk over each other. Youre sometimes dangerous, Adams told Meek. Thats a personal insult, Meek responded. Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney banged the gavel for a fiveminute recess. When the board returned, Adams reiterated that he was presenting facts to support his opinion on the C.R. 491 project. He also said Bays and Meek should request an ethics commission opinion about the EDC issue. Interim County Attorney Kerry Parsons said she would speak both with Bays and Meek regarding the concerns Adams raised. Meek said he still opposed Adams methods. Call a press conference or hold a town hall meeting and give everybody your thoughts and opinions, he said. This spectacle is not conducive to conducting business. I dont think the board should sit here for hours on end with accusations that I dont think are substantiated. Commissioner Dennis Damato defended the C.R. 491 project, but said Adams raised some good points for debate. Sometimes things can get a little rough, Damato said. It doesnt bother me.

Special to the ChronicleThe new year brings a new election cycle, with the primary election taking place on Aug. 26. Florida is a closed primary state, meaning one must be registered with the specific political party to vote in that partys primary. All eligible registered voters may vote in nonpartisan elections, for amendments, referendums and the general election. The general election takes place on Nov. 4. One must be registered 29 days before the election to be eligible to vote in that election. Those who are not now registered may do so by contacting the Supervisor of Elections Office. Those currently registered to vote are encouraged by the elections office to make sure their voter record is up to date. Those who have moved, purchased a new home, changed their name or wish to change party affiliation are urged to make those updates to their voter registration record as early as possible. Vote-by-mail continues to be a popular method of voting. Therefore, voter signatures are very important. Your signature on the mail ballot must match the signature on file at the elections office. Signatures on candidate and initiative petitions are also verified by what is on file. Signatures change over time for many reasons. Now is the time to make sure an updated signature is on file. In most cases, updating your signature is as simple as completing a voter registration application, available online at www.votecitrus.com, at all our public libraries, post offices, governmental agencies, or by calling the elections office at 352341-6740. In the case of an address change, it can be accomplished via email at vote@elections. citrus.fl.us or by calling the elections office. Party change requests and name changes must be submitted on a voter registration application in writing, which requires your signature, date of birth or voter registration number. Early voting will be available prior to each election. Any eligible registered voter may vote at any of the early voting sites. Not sure if you are registered to vote? Have questions or concerns? Visit the elections offices website or contact the office at 352-341-6740 or www.votecitrus.com. STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE SEANARNOLD For the ChronicleDeputies have nabbed two men suspected to be responsible for a rash of burglaries in Citrus Hills. Sean Fugere, 21, and Joshua Briscoe, 18, both of Inverness, were arrested Monday. They face multiple felony charges including burglary to an unoccupied residence, grand theft and possession of burglary tools. According to reports, deputies were conducting a security search of the area, due to an increase in reported burglaries. Arrest affidavits state that deputies saw Fugere and Briscoe pulling out of a driveway in Citrus Hills in a 1998 white Saturn. Deputies recognized Fugere, who had an active warrant for unrelated theft charges, and pulled the car over. Stolen jewelry from the home they were reportedly seen exiting was found in the vehicle, along with a long flathead screwdriver, which authorities suspect was used to pry open the victims door. Gloves were also found in the vehicle and may have been used during the burglary. Recorded statements by both Fugere and Briscoe reportedly contained confessions to not only this burglary, but several others in the Citrus Hills area. The arrest led to further felony charges being brought against Fugere, including trafficking in stolen property, grand theft, and burglary to an unoccupied residence. Briscoe also faces additional charges of grand theft and burglary to an unoccupied residence. The latest charges for the pair resulted from a burglary reported on Jan. 29. According to their arrest affidavits, they are accused of stealing jewelry and $5,000 in cash by breaking into the rear door of the victims Citrus Hills home. The jewelry was later pawned at an Inverness pawn shop. Fugere was also charged with petit theft from an active warrant; his total bond was set at $20,500, while Briscoes bond was set at $15,000. Two face charges related to burglaries Sean Fugere Joshua Briscoe CHRISVANORMER Staff writerSacrifice cant be forgotten. The U.S. Coast Guards first loss of World War II, USCGC Alexander Hamilton, was sunk 72 years ago after an attack by a German U-boat 28 miles from the coast of Iceland. A torpedo explosion killed 20 men instantly; 26 was the final death toll. The cutter capsized and was sunk after salvage attempts were abandoned. The Hamilton lies upside down more than 300 feet below the sea in icy water 3,700 miles away, but it is linked to Crystal River through the efforts of a relative of one of the men who perished. Michael Vos was one of those who died. His cousin twice removed, Dave Downey, grew up with the oral tradition of his relative. The Hamilton was sunk in 1942, the Inverness resident explained. Michaels sister Helen made a scrapbook. When Helen passed away, she passed it on to Mary Jo, her niece. Mary Jo and I are the same age. We have a family reunion every year and I would usually stay at their house. When Helen gave all this stuff to Mary Jo, she said specifically, this doesnt go in a desk drawer, it goes on the wall. This must always be displayed. Mary Jo has a wonderful tribute to Michael and the Hamilton. Mary Jo has always kept the family story going. Keeping an eye on the Coast Guards activities with the sunken cutter, Downey learned a dive to the wreckage happened in 2012. I contacted the dive leader, Jonas Samuelsson of Sweden, Downey said. He said, we are going back; do you want to put a plaque on the ship? That started the process. Downey had to get a plaque made, and found Glenn and Kathy Palhof of Kustom Glass studio in Crystal River. We were fortunate to find Kustom Glass, Downey said. They came up with a system for attaching the plaque to the ship so the team didnt need to bring any tools. Jonas contacted Sergio Gamberini of Ocean Reef, which sponsored it. This is an international project without American money and without American people doing it. The plaque is an 18-by-18 inch piece of black granite the Palhofs have designed and etched with a sketch of the Hamilton, Coast Guard emblems, a description of the historic event and the names of the men who were lost. We purchased some rare earth magnets and we had to ship it to Iceland at a certain time because the divers were going to be there from Egypt, Kathy Palhof said, describing some of the challenges of this particular project. Once the plaque was produced, the dive team, members of several nationalities, had to wait about a year to coordinate the dive to affix the plaque to the vessel because of weather and their schedules. Divers said they had to go straight down and resurface quickly, so they arent certain what part of the vessel carries the plaque. For a 24-minute video about the dive, go to www.youtube.com/watch?vS9u Fvq4Y6L8.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352564-2916 or cvanormer@ chronicleonline.com. Memorial in the deep MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleGlenn Palhof, left, and wife Kathy, owners of Kustom Glass in Crystal River, recently designed a granite monument that was placed on the USCGC Alexander Hamilton, located 300 feet beneath the waters surface south of Iceland. The cousin of Dave Downey was one of 26 men lost in a torpedo attack on Jan. 29, 1942. Downey is pictured at center. Special to the ChronicleTwenty-six men died when the USCGC Alexander Hamilton was torpedoed south of Iceland in 1942. Local mans relative perished in World War II Coast Guard sinking MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Frank DiGiovanni wants the Inverness Government Center to live up to its name. And with the slice of a ceremonial ribbon late Monday afternoon, the city manager joined other city officials and those with the Department of Children & Families to celebrate the citys newest tenant. DCF moved 40 investigators and attorneys out of the pink office building theyve rented for decades on U.S. 41 at the north end of town. A separate DCF service center on South Apopka Avenue provides low-income assistance to families. The city spent $340,000 to renovate about 5,000 square feet for the DCF offices. DCF signed a lease to January 2021 starting at $111,652 the first year with gradual annual increases. DiGiovanni said he and DCF officials began discussing the idea of a move six years ago. He said the DCF move brings more government presence to the Citrus County seat. You guys are the bomb! he exclaimed. Welcome to our neighborhood. William DAiuto, DCF regional managing director, said the new location is perfect. It brings our investigators and lawyers closer to the courthouse, he said. DiGiovanni said the city will recoup its investment through DCF rent payments. While Monday was the ribbon cutting, DCF workers moved into the Inverness offices about a month ago, DAiuto said. DCF pleased with downtown Inverness offices Get ready to vote Make sure registration is in order Susan GillCitrus County Supervisor of Elections.

YOU COULD RECEIVE A REWARD UP TO $ 1,000 For the RECORD Deputy killed investigating burglary Associated PressORLANDO A central Florida sheriffs deputy was fatally shot while responding to a car burglary call near Orlando, authorities said Tuesday. Officials with the Orange County Sheriffs Office said 34-year-old Jonathan Scott Pine saw a suspect sitting in a car with a woman late Monday. The suspect started to run and the deputy pursued him. Thats when the man fired at the deputy, hitting him. Authorities said the suspect, identified as Benjamin Holtermann, 28, kept running and was found dead in a nearby neighborhood. Authorities said it doesnt appear the deputy fired at him, so they are trying to determine whether the suspect shot himself. Capt. Angelo Nieves said the fire department made valiant efforts to save our deputy. But he was pronounced dead at Orlando Regional Medical Center. Pine was married and had three small children, Sheriff Jerry L. Demings said in a statement. Pine had been with the sheriffs office since 2011. Erica Pugh, 18, who was with Holtermann during the initial burglary call, was apprehended in the area. Authorities said she was interviewed by detectives and confessed to a recent armed robbery in the Orlando area. Pugh is being charged with multiple counts of burglary and grand theft, the sheriffs office said. The citizens of Orange County lost a true hero who was tragically killed patrolling the streets of our community, the sheriff said. Demings was out of town on business when the shooting occurred and was returning Tuesday.

Theres not even a definition in the dictionary for zingers. I had a legal friend call me. He goes: What are you all up to now? He goes: Zingers? Have you looked up zingers? Adams said people should be allowed to say what they want as long as they arent rude. Dont cuss. Dont threaten people. Dont threaten to cut their throat. Dont threaten to bring them outside, beat them up. Dont call them thugs, Adams said. I think we can accept things. Adams then questioned the documents non-interference clause. Acting County Attorney Kerry Parsons said the ordinance reiterated statutes and regulations for a county administrative form of government, that commissioners would address all questions to the county administrator, who would in turn inquire of county employees about replies to questions. This actually helps with regards to potential litigation in the future, if an employee were to say that a board member were to overstep your bounds at some point in time, there is this in there that specifically is codified that says theres a noninterference clause, Parsons said. Adams questioned why a county employee, Adam Thomas, interim director of tourism, had arranged to have lunch with Commissioner Joe Meek rather than going through the county administrator. Are we going to pick and choose what commissioners are going to have public information so we can do damage control? Adams asked. Are we going to pick and choose who can have lunch? Adams said he does not support the idea of county employees having lunch with elected officials. He questioned how effective the noninterference clause would be if commissioners continue to eat lunch with county staff. If that (the noninterference clause) is to stop me from asking questions or anybody else as a commissioner, I think thats wrong and its wrong for the taxpayers, Adams said. Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney said hes been guilty of talking to staff members occasionally. Youve got people down there in the trenches and youve got five of us going directly to them, Kenney said. What are they supposed to do? If we filter it through the administrator and the deputy administrator, youre going to get your responses and its no gotcha or anything. Its just trying to maintain a chain of command. Commissioner Rebecca Bays, chairwoman of the Tourist Development Council, said she encouraged a working relationship between Thomas and Meek because Meek is the chairman of the Economic Development Council. There are so many times that economic development is going to come our way because of tourist opportunities, Bays said. Adams responded: Are we going to have two sets of rules, then? Meek clarified that zinger has been a word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary since 1955 meaning something causing or meant to cause interest, surprise or shock, or a pointed witty remark or retort. The board agreed to set the public hearing by a 4-1 vote, with Adams opposed. The public hearing for the Public Participation Ordinance will be at 1:45 p.m. and the Civility and Decorum Ordinance at 2 p.m. Feb. 25. If approved, both would take effect immediately. Adams also was the sole board member opposed to hiring Federal Property Registration Corp. to account for the countys vacant and foreclosed properties. He also cast the lone no vote to set a public hearing for the adoption phase of the County Road 491 Corridor Overlay Plan. That hearing has been set for 5:01 p.m. Feb. 25.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-5642916 or cvanormer@ chronicleonline.com.

Her hit movies which included Bright Eyes (1934), Curly Top (1935), Dimples (1936), Poor Little Rich Girl (1936) and Heidi (1937) featured sentimental themes and musical subplots, with stories of resilience and optimism that a struggling American public found appealing. She kept children singing On the Good Ship Lollipop for generations. She was also a tribute to the economic and inspirational power of movies, credited with helping to save 20th Century Fox from bankruptcy and praised by President Franklin D. Roosevelt himself for lifting Americas spirits during a gloomy time. She was just absolutely marvelous, greatest in the world, director Allan Dwan told filmmaker-author Peter Bogdanovich in his book Who the Devil Made It: Conversations With Legendary Film Directors. With Shirley, youd just tell her once and shed remember the rest of her life, said Dwan, who directed her in Heidi and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. Whatever it was she was supposed to do shed do it. ... And if one of the actors got stuck, shed tell him what his line was she knew it better than he did. Her achievements did not end with movies. Retired from acting at 21, she went on to hold several diplomatic posts in Republican administrations, including ambassador to Czechoslovakia during the sudden collapse of communism in 1989. Former President George H.W. Bush, who appointed Black to the post in Prague, saluted her Tuesday for her selfless service to our country and her film career. In both roles, she truly lifted people up and earned not only a place in our hearts, but also our enduring respect, Bush said in a statement. Temple, known in private life as Shirley Temple Black, died at her home near San Francisco. The cause of death was not disclosed. From 1935 to 1938, she was the most popular screen actress in the country and was a bigger draw than Clark Gable, Joan Crawford or Gary Cooper. In 1999, the American Film Institutes ranking of the greatest screen legends put Temple at No. 18 among the 25 actresses. I have one piece of advice for those of you who want to receive the lifetime achievement award: Start early, she quipped in 2006 as she was honored by the Screen Actors Guild. But she also said that evening that her greatest roles were as wife, mother and grandmother: Theres nothing like real love. Nothing. Her husband of more than 50 years, Charles Black, had died a few months earlier. In Bright Eyes, Temple introduced the song On the Good Ship Lollipop and did battle with a charmingly bratty Jane Withers, launching Withers as another major child star. As a bright-eyed orphan in Curly Top, she sang Animal Crackers in My Soup. She was teamed with the legendary dancer Bill Bojangles Robinson in two 1935 films with Civil War themes, The Little Colonel and The Littlest Rebel. Their tap dance up the steps in The Little Colonel (at a time when interracial teamings were rare in Hollywood) became a landmark in the history of film dance. Known for a remarkable ability to cry on cue, she won a special Academy Award at age 6 and was presented with a miniature Oscar statuette for her outstanding contribution to screen entertainment. Temple and her movies were an escapist delight at a time when America was down in the dumps. Mothers dressed their little girls like her, and a line of dolls that are now highly sought-after collectibles was launched. Her fans seemed interested in every last golden curl on her head. Her mother, Gertrude, was said to have done her hair for each movie, with every hairstyle having exactly 56 curls. TEMPLEContinued from Page A1 Associated PressChild actress ShirleyTemple is seen in her role as Little Miss Marker in 1933. The curly-haired child star who put smiles on the faces of Depression-era moviegoers, has died. She was 85.

Michael Dunn said he tried to calm down the confrontation with three teens in a neighboring SUV outside a Jacksonville convenience store in November 2012. I couldnt believe what I was seeing and hearing, the 47-year-old said. Dunn is charged with first-degree murder. He has pleaded not guilty and says he acted in self-defense when he fatally shot 17-year-old Jordan Davis of Marietta, Ga., outside a Jacksonville convenience store in 2012. The defense rested its case Tuesday, and then prosecutors called Dunns fiancee back to the witness stand. Rhonda Rouer contradicted Dunns assertion that he had told her he had seen a gun in the teens SUV. Closing arguments were expected Wednesday. Prosecutors also played a video of Dunns jailhouse interview in which he couldnt explain why he didnt call police after the shooting. Also in it, detectives picked apart Dunns story that he was threatened with a gun, saying no weapon was found on the teen and witnesses never described Davis making threats. Dunn said he would not have done anything to get himself in trouble. I got a place on the beach. I got a great house. I got a great girl. We just got a new puppy, Dunn said. There is no reason for me to jeopardize that. In his testimony, Dunn told jurors he was in Jacksonville with Rouer to attend his sons wedding. He had brought along on the trip his 7-month-old dog, and at one point in testimony, he wiped away tears when talking about his fiancee and dog. Dunn said he and Rouer went to the convenience store for wine and chips. He said he pulled into a spot next to an SUV where music with a thumping bass was playing. It got really loud, Dunn said. My rear view mirror was shaking. My eardrums were vibrating. It was ridiculously loud. Dunn said he asked the three men in the SUV to turn down the music and they turned it off. I said, Thank you, Dunn said. But soon afterward, Dunn said he heard someone in the SUV shouting expletives and the word cracker at him. Dunn is white, and the teens in the SUV were black. Cracker is a derogatory term for white people. The music was turned back on, and Dunn testified, I wasnt going to ask for favors anymore. Dunn said the men in the SUV had menacing expressions, and he asked the teens whether they were talking about him. He said he wanted to calm down the situation but saw a teen in the backseat reach down for something which he slammed into the car door. Dunn said it looked as if the barrel of a shotgun was sticking out the window. One of the teens stepped out of the SUV, Dunn said, and he felt this was a clear and present danger. He reached for his pistol in a glove box. Dunn, who had a concealed weapons permit, fired nine shots into the car, according to an affidavit. Once his fiancee returned to the car, he drove off out of fear of the SUV returning, he said. He described having tunnel vision, with everything focused on his target. No weapons were found in the SUV. Dunn said he told Rouer on the drive back to the hotel that he had shot in self-defense. I didnt do anything wrong, Dunn said he told her. Dunn and Rouer drove back to their hotel and Dunn said he didnt call the police because his focus was on the wellbeing of Rouer, whom he described as in hysterics. The next morning, Dunn said, Rouer insisted she wanted to go home and they drove back to their home in Brevard County, 175 miles away. There, Dunn said he contacted a neighbor who is in law enforcement for advice on how to turn himself in to authorities. During cross-examination, prosecutor John Guy challenged Dunns assertion that he had told Rouer after the shooting that he thought one of the teens had a gun. You never told the love of your life that those guys had a gun, Guy said. Did you? Dunn responded, You were not there. Guy challenged Dunn on other parts of his story, citing letters Dunn had written from jail and interviews with investigators. The prosecutor said Dunn had told detectives the day after the shooting that it could have been a stick he saw pointing from the vehicle. But Dunn countered he was just suggesting a farfetched possibility. Associated PressMichael Dunn gestures Tuesday on the stand during his trial in Jacksonville. Quarter of seniors scoring 3 or higher on AP testMIAMI More than a quarter of all Florida high school seniors are earning high enough scores on Advanced Placement tests to earn college credit. A report released Tuesday by the College Board shows 27 percent of Florida students graduating in 2013 scored a 3 or higher on an AP test. That passage rate was the fifth highest in the nation and a big jump from the states performance a decade before. In 2003, just 15 percent of graduating seniors scored at that level on an AP exam. The 2013 graduating class scores were the same as those seen in 2012. In 2011, 24 percent of seniors earned a 3 or higher on an AP test.Miami Dade leads in national Dreamers scholarshipsMIAMI Miami Dade College on Tuesday became the biggest recipient of a new private scholarship program aimed at helping immigrant youth. Former Washington Post owner Donald E. Graham, who co-founded TheDream.US, joined College President Eduardo Padron at Miamis historic Freedom Tower to present the awards to 22 Miami Dade students. Another 17 youth nationwide also will receive the support in this inaugural batch of scholarships. Graham said he became interested in helping the Dreamers after working with youth in Washington, D.C., public schools, encouraging them to attend college. Each year, the number of students unable to afford college because of their immigration status grew. Youth brought to the country as children and who now live here illegally so-called Dreamers are not eligible for federal grants, and in many states must pay out-ofstate tuition. Philanthropist Henry Munoz III and for U.S. Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez also co-founded the group last June and tapped Miami Dade alumna and Dreamer activist Gabby Pacheco as its program director. TheDream.US provides scholarships of up to $25,000 in aid and has raised $25 million, Graham said.Boy arrested in theft of Girl Scouts cellphoneFORT LAUDERDALE A 15-year-old boy has been arrested by Fort Lauderdale police on charges of stealing a Girl Scouts cellphone while she was selling cookies outside a local grocery store. Police said Tuesday they identified the ninth-grader from previous police encounters by viewing the Winn-Dixie stores video surveillance. The Samsung Galaxy S3 phone was stolen from a Girl Scout during a Sunday night cookie sale. One person distracted the group and the other took the phone that was lying on a table. The second juvenile who was present has not been charged. The 15-year-old suspect, a student at South Plantation High School, is facing grand larceny charges.Missing child found in shallow graveORLANDO The body of a toddler discovered missing in central Florida this week has been found buried in a shallow grave. Sanford Police Chief Cecil Smith said Tuesday that the body of 2-year-old Tariji Gordon was found in Crescent City, which is located about an hour north of Sanford. The childs mother, 32-year-old Rachel Fryer, was arrested earlier Tuesday and was being held without bond on a charge of aggravated child neglect. Investigators said Fryer never reported her daughter missing. A check performed Monday at Fryers home at the request of child welfare officials revealed the child was missing. Gordon is one of Fryers four children. The other three have been place in foster care. Authorities were still looking to question Gordons boyfriend, Timothy Gordon.Three cars of freight train derail near JacksonvilleJACKSONVILLE Officials say three cars of a freight train have derailed near Jacksonville, including one that leaked a small amount of ethanol. The derailment occurred early Tuesday. The Florida Times-Union reported the leak was contained after only a few of the 200,000 gallons of flammable ethanol leaked out. Fire department spokesman Tom Francis said the car was tipped over just north of Acosta Bridge. He said no ethanol leaked into the St. Johns River below. The U.S. Coast Guards pollution responders were standing by to assist if necessary. They said a safety zone has been set up and extends 200 yards on either side of the bridge. The newspapers production building is near the railroad tracks and was evacuated for precautionary reasons.Police searching for missing legislative internTALLAHASSEE Authorities are trying to find a 23-year-old Florida State University graduate who went missing days after beginning an internship for a state lawmaker. Ryan Uhre disappeared on Feb. 2, after watching the Super Bowl with friends at a Tallahassee bar, according to Tallahassee police. He was last seen walking home, wearing a Hawaiian-style shirt with surfing Santas. From wire reports State BRIEFS

Interestrates 000HBQ8 US stocks surge after Fed chief reassures Associated PressNEW YORK Reassuring words from the new head of the Federal Reserve sent stocks soaring on Tuesday and gave the market its longest winning streak this year. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped nearly 200 points after Fed Chair Janet Yellen said she would continue the central banks market-friendly, lowinterest rate policies. Investors also welcomed news that Congress appeared poised to raise the U.S. borrowing limit without the political drama that happened late last year. That would avert the threat of a disastrous default on the U.S. governments debt. Many of the risks everyone had their eyes on for 2014 are quickly being cleared away, said Kristina Hooper, head of U.S. investment strategies for Allianz Global Investors. On Tuesday, the Dow Jones industrial average rose 192.98 points, or 1.2 percent, to 15,994.77. It was the Dows third tripledigit advance in four days. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 19.91 points, or 1.1 percent, to 1,819.75 and the Nasdaq composite rose 42.87 points, or 1 percent, to 4,191.04. The Nasdaq is now in positive territory for 2014, while the S&P 500 and Dow are down 1.5 percent and 3.5 percent the year, respectively. Investors had two points of worry resolved this week, analysts said. Yellen, in her first public comments since taking over for Ben Bernanke at the Federal Reserve last week, told Congress that she expects a great deal of continuity with her predecessor. Yellen said she supports Bernankes view that the economy is strengthening enough to withstand a pullback in the Feds stimulus, but that interest rates should stay low to encourage more growth. Last week, the Fed announced it would reduce its bond purchases by $10 billion to $65 billion a month. Shes being well received (by investors), said Rob Stein, CEO of Astor Investment Management in Chicago. Politicians also appear to have reached an agreement over raising the nations borrowing limit, sometimes called the debt ceiling. House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday that he would allow a vote to raise the borrowing limit without any conditions attached. The announcement came a few days after Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said the federal government would exhaust its ability to borrow money by Feb. 27. Lew urged Congress to pass a bill to raise the limit as soon as possible. The approaching deadline had been a lingering source of worry for investors, who still bear scars from the last two debt debates. The political tussle over raising the borrowing limit in August 2011 eventually led Standard & Poors to downgrade the United States credit rating, which in turn caused the stock market to go through three months of nauseating swings. During the October 2013 debate, the United States came within days of running out of cash, causing investors to flee some parts of the U.S. Treasury market out of fear that the federal government could not pay its debts. Investors were preparing for the debt ceiling negotiations to become a disaster, said Brian Reynolds, market strategist with Rosenblatt Securities. The surge in the last four days has helped the market avoid its first correction since 2011. Thats when an index falls 10 percent or more from a recent peak. The S&P 500s recent decline brought the index down as much as 5.8 percent from its peak of 1,848 reached on Jan. 15.

Whats a stake? CVS estimates the loss of about $2 billion in annual revenue. Certainly the dollar stores wont capture all of the foregone sales, but both retailers have enjoyed a boost in revenue from adding cigarettes to their stores within the last two years. Rick Dreiling, CEO of Dollar General, said in December that one of the biggest benefits has been that cigarettes bring additional customers into the to those customers, not just cigarettes. Dreiling noted that the number of customers buying cigarettes along with several other items had risen to 44 percent in the companys third quarter, up from about a third when sales first began.

Its a sign of the growing value of a college education despite rising tuition costs, according to an analysis of census data released Tuesday. Young adults with just a high-school diploma earned 62 percent of the typical salary of college graduates. Thats down from 81 percent in 1965, the earliest year for which comparable data are available.Wiggle room for big firms under new coverage rule WASHINGTON Big stores, hotels, restaurants and other companies with lots of low-wage and part-time workers will be among the main beneficiaries of the Obama administrations latest tweak to health care rules. Consultants and government officials said companies with 100 or more workers can avoid the biggest of two potential employer penalties in the Affordable Care Act if they offer coverage to 70 percent of their full-timers. That target is a lot easier to hit than the administrations previous requirement of 95 percent. But the wiggle room is only good for next year. Treasury officials said the goal is to create an easier path for employers already covering many of their workers.From wire reports

Time and time again, we hear or read about what county commissioners want to do as: build a new animal shelter, move concrete memorials, create a new port, make County Road 491 a medical corridor, buy highpriced old buildings, hire consultants, extend useless corridors, and on and on ad nausea. Who requested any of these inane events? What ever happened to the old adage a government of the people, by the people and for the people? Who wanted these dubious schemes? Over the years, an appalling misunderstanding has occurred like the tail wagging the dog. Our votes went to candidates we thought would consider various wonderful measures for those residents desiring them. Not the other way around. I mistakenly thought commissioners relied on proposals made by concerned individuals, community associations, organizations who wanted the very best for their neighborhoods! Our taxes were supposed to be used to fund these needed services, not for your pie-in-the-sky personal whims. I defy any commissioner to name the group who came forward desiring any of these actions. Who works for whom? Maybe that is the reason why we pay such usurious taxes. Our tax money is spent so foolishly, it boggles the mind. Its time for commissioners to get down to real business. You work for us. Its not the other way around. Unless you are acting in the interests of fretful residents, who cares what you personally want during your term of office? Thats why there is such an enormous turnover each election cycle. Its ridiculous.Peter Monteleone Pine Ridge Volunteers make a differenceThe citizens of Citrus County deserve some recognition for all they do to better their community. I have served as an officer in the Salvation Army in many places both large and small. The common factor in all these towns, cities, and counties is that there is always a small portion of people who are committed to coming together and working to meet the needs of others. I have always been able to count on a few good people to work with in any given community. Well, that view changed for me about seven months ago when I was assigned as the new corps officer of the Salvation Army of Citrus County. I didnt need to find a few good people because a whole bunch of them found me and continue to do so. Since my arrival I have witnessed a level of commitment and compassion, from both agencies and individuals, that is unique and unmatched in my experience. Here are a few examples. In Citrus County we come together and have two successful postal food drives a year, while most of the nation has only one. We have a Thanksgiving Feeding Alliance of agencies, churches, stores, community leaders, and an army of volunteers, that channel the generosity of a whole community to help feed hundreds of needy families and individuals and connect them with life changing resources. And here at The Salvation Army we have a cold-weather shelter that is 100 percent manned by volunteers from across the community. The list goes on and on. We have a mindset that says Lets get together and meet this need. But the real key that makes the difference isnt the number of agencies, programs, or initiatives that a community has in place. Its the place that people have in their own hearts that draws them to make a difference for others. I have come to love Citrus County because its people know how to love. Thanks to all of you who give so much to serve the needs of your neighbors. You make a difference! Sincerely, Captain Phillip S. Irish Corps Officer The Salvation Army of Citrus County This November, voters will have the opportunity to decide whether to allow so-called medical marijuana in Florida. As a parent, the amendment forces me to ask myself: Would I want my daughter, when she becomes a teenager, smoking marijuana to alleviate premenstrual cramps, anxiety from school exams or difficulty concentrating during class? The answer is no, and Ill tell you why. Under the proposed constitutional amendment, any physician licensed in Florida could sign a physician certification stating that, in his or her professional opinion, my teenage daughter suffers from a condition for which the physician believes that the medical use of marijuana would likely outweigh the potential health risks for the patient. This physician certification is based upon the physicians professional opinion. Most people dont realize that the amendment isnt limited to medical doctors and doctors of osteopathic medicine. As a result, a chiropractor, optometrist, physician assistant or psychiatrist could certify marijuana use for patients. As a parent, I am performing my due diligence in reviewing the available scientific research on marijuana. What I am finding is that the future of medical marijuana lies in its individual components that can be isolated in a non-smoking form like an oil, pill or cream. I am also finding that there is an expedited need for research and development of cannabis-based derivatives like cannabidiol or CBD. Its important to distinguish tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC one of the psychotropic chemicals in the cannabis plant that causes a high from CBD. The Food and Drug Administration recently approved clinical trials for the use of CBD in treating severe forms of childhood epilepsy that dont respond to antiepileptic drugs. I have heard from countless parents who have exhausted every available treatment, medication and even surgery to stop their childs seizures. We are only beginning to realize the vast potential for cannabisderived therapies, but we must do it right. As a policymaker, I am not going to stand in the way of advancements in science and medicine while patients needlessly suffer. I want patients to have access to the safest and most effective forms of cannabis-derived therapies administered by a medical doctor or osteopathic physician who can further the research and development of new therapies by monitoring their efficacy. The proposed constitutional amendment gives patients false hope in a form of marijuana that is neither safe nor effective, especially for pediatric and adolescent patients. Natures pharmacy has provided with us a plant whose compounds should be utilized in the safest, most effective way. Its time for us to start thinking about cannabis as we would with any other medicine and stop burying our heads in the sand. Jimmie T. Smith of Inverness is in the Florida House of Representatives.

Feb. 15 will mark the ninth year that Aaron A. Weaver Chapter 776 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart has hosted a community ceremony to honor those service members who fell or were wounded in the defense of our cherished freedoms. February was chosen for the annual ceremony because it is the birth month of Gen. George Washington, who created an award with the figure of a heart on purple silk to recognize the common soldier for instances of unusual gallantry, extraordinary fidelity and essential service. Originally known as the Badge of Military Merit, it was redesigned and re-designated the Purple Heart in 1932 as an award exclusively for service members who are killed, wounded or died of wounds by an enemy instrument of war. Since the ceremonys inception, it has grown from a score of attendees to a standing room crowd in the Florida National Guard Armory in Crystal River that includes many of the countys elected officials and community leaders. Thanks to this noteworthy community support, the sacrifices of those who gave all and those who gave some on the field of battle will never be forgotten. This years ceremony will be dedicated to Chapter 776 charter member Master Sergeant Donald Guard, USMC, Retired, who died this past September. The originator of Chapter 776s annual Purple Heart ceremony, Guard saw combat in World War II, Korea and Vietnam earning the Silver Star, Bronze Star for Valor, Navy Commendation Medal for Valor and two Purple Hearts. Saturdays ceremony will also honor the memory of the latest fallen hero with Citrus County ties Army Chief Warrant Officer Randy Billings who perished in a helicopter crash last December in Afghanistan. Billings wife, Ashley, is the sister of Chief Warrant Officer Aaron Weaver of Inverness, who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq a decade ago. The ceremony will also give special recognition to local Purple Heart recipients awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge during World War II, which was established by the War Department in 1943 to recognize the skill and heroism of the American infantryman in ground combat. The sacrifices of those that the ceremony honors each year have been many and great. Community leaders and residents, especially our young people, are therefore encouraged to sacrifice an hour or more of their time this Saturday not only to honor, but also to be inspired by the courageous service to our country of our fallen heroes and wounded warriors.

I am an American I just wanted to say how impressed I was reading the article I am an American from disabled retired Staff Sgt. Ken Patterson on MLK Holiday in the paper today. I believe all students will learn from his words and make an inspirational message to all schools involved, not just Crystal River Primary School. He made a dream for himself, and Im sure everyone that read this article will see how brave he was and how he sacrificed for our country. God bless you.

Remember: No one can do everything, but everyone can do something. Together, we will get this done.Cynthia Holden contact for Bring Bowe Home project Cyn2719@yahoo.comStart conserving water nowImagine if we converted the swimming areas of Florida beaches to fresh water. Picture retaining walls around designated swimming areas, large desalination pumps, and freshwater vegetation and fish to provide a more natural environment. After a few generations, beach visitors would come to expect this as the norm. But this obviously would be a ridiculous waste of resources, not to mention result in an unknown number of ecological consequences. Yet as drastic as this sounds, this is what most of us have done in our own yards. Weve created artificial environments and only started to become aware of the problems with this practice the largest being the loss of our drinking water. Weve had a centuriesold love affair with lawns, stemming from British settlers who brought the well-manicured lawns of wealthy landowners to the New World. And this love affair with lawns spread to every corner of North America, despite extreme climate and soil differences. This desire to have lawns in these vastly different climates and ecosystems has caused us problems. In order to maintain lush, green lawns in various regions, weve had to create an artificial environment of sorts: fertilizing to make up for lacking nutrients in native soils, watering when rainfall isnt sufficient, applying insecticides and herbicides to eliminate damage from bugs and unsightly weeds, and mowing to maintain a manicured appearance. And all of this takes time and money ... and has taken a huge toll on our water resources. Fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides and grass trimmings drain into our waterways affecting water quality and aquatic life. Not only are we impacting our water quality, be we are also drastically reducing our water availability. This past August, the state of Florida announced findings from a multi-year study to determine how much more water Central Florida could pump out of the aquifer without causing significant environmental harm: about 6 percent (from 800 million gallons per day today to 850 million gallons per day). Once we exceed this extraction level, we will begin to see increasingly costly damage to springs, wetlands, and lakes. However, our population is expected to grow by 36 percent in the next 20 years. At our current rate of water usage, Central Florida will require 1.1 billion gallons of water a day, and our aquifer simply cannot handle that load. Hundreds of millions of gallons of water per day will have to come from other sources (reclaimed, treated, or desalinated) and the price of water will significantly increase. Yet 50 percent to 70 percent of residential water use is for watering lawns, to sustain artificial environments in our yards. Water conservation is available today, is inexpensive, and will allow more water to be available in our aquifer for a longer period. So lets turn off our sprinklers today so we have affordable water to drink tomorrow! Start replacing your landscaping with Florida-friendly and Florida native materials. This means sustainable landscaping that does not require watering beyond normal rainfall, does not require added nutrients beyond what is already in our soil, and is not susceptible to pests and diseases and therefore does not need insecticides and other poisons. Done properly, native landscaping can be attractive and inviting, low-maintenance and, most-importantly, water conserving. Its time to shed the centuries-old practice of unsustainable yards of English nobility. Its time to replace our artificial environments and discover the real Florida. Its time to stop using our precious water resources unnecessarily so that we can afford this lifesustaining resource in the future.Wendy Williams DunnellonNo need to criticize I have lived in Citrus County since July 1987.

When the phrase melting pot is used, it fits here. One man in a (letter to the editor) criticized people using Sound Off to express our opinions, called us cowards. He needs to read the rules for both. They are at the bottom of the page. Now, for my two cents worth. The latest gripe is about law officers not making turn signals. Very simple: You do not know what he or she is hearing on the radio. Their rapid response may save someones life, including yours. Please give them some elbow room.Harry C. Preston Beverly HillsKings Bay Rotary to donate funds Once again our Annual Stone Crab Jam was a huge success, which we could not make happen without the support of numerous nonprofit groups who come out to assist us in this event. It is the practice of the Kings Bay Rotary Club of Crystal River to thank our many volunteers by donating funds to the charity organizations they represent. On Thursday, Jan. 23, we gathered to honor our volunteers at the Seminole Club at 135 N.E. Third St. in Crystal River. Organizations such as Hospice of Citrus County, Habitat for Humanity, FFA, and the National Association of Retired Law Enforcement Officers are just a few of the organizations that received funds. A complete list of those organizations receiving funds will be available at the event. Once again the hard work of our volunteers has resulted in one of the premier events in Citrus County.

Associated PressATLANTA The city dodged the first punch of a dangerous winter storm Tuesday, but forecasters warned of a potentially catastrophic second blow in a thick layer of ice that threatened to bring hundreds of thousands of power outages and leave people in their cold, dark homes for days. The streets and highways in metro Atlanta were largely deserted as people in the Souths business hub heeded advice from officials to hunker down at home, especially after the snow jam two weeks ago saw thousands of people stranded on icy, gridlocked roads for hours when 2 inches of snow fell. Last time I was totally unprepared, I was completely blindsided, said Lisa Nadir, of Acworth, who sat in traffic for 13 hours and then spent the night in her car when the storm hit Jan. 28. Im going to be prepared from now on for the rest of my life. Nadir was telecommuting from home Tuesday and she had kitty litter in her trunk in case she needed to put it down on icy roads for extra traction. The forecast drew comparisons to an ice storm in the Atlanta area in 2000 that left more than 500,000 homes and businesses without power and an epic storm in 1973 that caused an estimated 200,000 outages for several days. In 2000, damage estimates topped $35 million. Eli Jacks, a meteorologist with National Weather Service, said forecasters use words like catastrophic sparingly. Sometimes we want to tell them, Hey, listen, this warning is different. This is really extremely dangerous and it doesnt happen very often, Jacks said. While only light rain fell in Atlanta on Tuesday, cities 40 miles northwest saw 2 to 3 inches of snow. The rain was expected to turn into sleet and freezing rain overnight. Around the Deep South, slick roads were causing problems. In North Texas, at least four people died in traffic accidents on icy roads, including a Dallas firefighter who was knocked from an Interstate 20 ramp and fell 50 feet, according to a police report. In northeastern Alabama, two National Guard wreckers were dispatched to help clear jackknifed 18-wheelers on Interstate 65. Gov. Robert Bentley said one lesson learned from the storm two weeks ago was to get those wreckers organized earlier. Parts of northeast Mississippi could see up to 4 inches of snow. South Carolina, which hasnt seen a major ice storm in nearly a decade, could get a quarter to three-quarters of an inch of ice and as much as 8 inches of snow in some areas. Delta canceled nearly 2,200 flights on Tuesday and Wednesday, most of them in Atlanta. Up for bid Associated PressBrig. Gen.

AG: Restore vote to ex-inmatesWASHINGTON Attorney General Eric Holder called on a group of states Tuesday to restore voting rights to ex-felons, part of a push to fix what he sees as flaws in the criminal justice system that have a disparate impact on racial minorities. It is time to fundamentally rethink laws that permanently disenfranchise people who are no longer under federal or state supervision, Holder said, targeting 11 states that he said continue to restrict voting rights for former inmates, even after theyve finished their prison terms. On a topic with racial overtones, Holder said 2.2 million black citizens, or nearly one in 13 AfricanAmerican adults, are banned from voting because of these laws, and he said the ratio climbs to one in five in Florida, Kentucky and Virginia.Graco recalling child car seatsDETROIT Graco is recalling nearly 3.8 million car safety seats because children can get trapped by buckles that may not unlatch. But the company has drawn the ire of federal safety regulators who say the recall should include another 1.8 million rear-facing car seats designed for infants. The recall covers 11 models made from 2009 through 2013 by Graco Childrens Products Inc. of Atlanta. Its the fourthlargest child seat recall in U.S. history, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the governments road safety watchdog.Ohio mom may change nameNEWARK, Ohio A central Ohio woman who loathed being named Sheila and wanted a moniker that reflects her personality has legally changed her first name to Sexy. A Licking County judge on Tuesday approved the request from the 41-yearold Pataskala woman formerly named Sheila Ranea Crabtree. In her application, Crabtree called her given name the ugliest one out there. When the judge asked why she chose Sexy, Crabtree said shes fun and freespirited and thought the change would make her complete.

Mandela died Dec. 5 at the age of 95. Belgium looks at right-to-die law BRUSSELS Belgium, one of the very few countries where euthanasia is legal, is expected to take the unprecedented step this week of abolishing age restrictions on who can ask to be put to death extending the right to children for the first time. The legislation appears to have wide support in the largely liberal country. But it has also aroused intense opposition from foes including a list of pediatricians and everyday people who have staged noisy street protests, fearing that vulnerable children will be talked into making a final, irreversible choice. Backers like Dr. Gerland van Berlaer, a prominent Brussels pediatrician, believe it is the merciful thing to do. The law will be specific enough that it will only apply to the handful of teenage boys and girls who are in advanced stages of cancer or other terminal illnesses and suffering unbearable pain, he said. Under current law, they must let nature take its course or wait until they turn 18 and can ask to be euthanized.Algeria: Plane crash kills 77 ALGIERS, Algeria An Algerian military transport plane slammed into a mountain Tuesday in the countrys rugged eastern region, killing 77 people and leaving just one survivor, the defense ministry said. Air traffic controllers lost radio and radar contact with the U.S.-built C-130 Hercules turboprop just before noon and dispatched helicopters to try to find it. The plane was discovered in pieces on Mount Fortas near the town of Ain Kercha, 30 miles southeast of Constantine, the main city in eastern Algeria. The plane carried 74 passengers and four crew members, the military said in its statement, blaming poor weather for the crash. The lone survivor a soldier suffered head injuries and was treated at a nearby military facility before being flown to the military hospital in Algiers. Civil defense officials at the snowy crash site said the plane broke into three parts and women and children were among the dead. World BRIEFS From wire reports House raises debt ceiling Associated PressWASHINGTON Unwilling to spook the markets and divided among themselves, House Republicans backed away from a battle over the governments debt limit Tuesday and permitted President Barack Obamas Democratic allies to drive quick passage of a measure extending Treasurys borrowing authority without any concessions from the White House. The 221-201 vote came hours after Speaker John Boehner announced that his fractured party would relent. Just 28 Republicans voted for the measure, including Boehner and his top lieutenants. But 193 Democrats more than compensated for the low support among Republicans. Senate Democrats hoped to vote on the legislation as early as Wednesday and send it to Obama for his signature. The move was denounced by many conservative groups but came after most Republicans in the House made clear they had no taste for another highstakes fight with Obama over the nations debt ceiling, which must be raised so the government can borrow money to pay all of its bills. The bill would permit the Treasury Department to borrow normally for another 13 months, putting off the chance of a debt crisis well past the November elections and providing time for a newly elected Congress to decide how to handle the issue. Just Monday, Republicans suggested pairing the debt measure with legislation to roll back a recent cut in the inflation adjustment of pension benefits for working age military retirees. Democrats insisted on a debt measure completely clean of unrelated legislation. The full faith and credit (of the United States) should be unquestioned and it is not negotiable, said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. The vote comes four months after Washington defused a government shutdown and debt crisis that burned Republicans politically an experience they did not want to repeat. Nuke reform ideas tried five years ago Associated PressWASHINGTON Five years ago the Air Force considered a series of proposals to boost morale and fix performance and security lapses in its nuclear missile corps, according to internal emails and documents obtained by The Associated Press. But many fell short or died on the vine, and now, with the force again in crisis, its retracing those earlier steps. The new effort is more far-reaching, on a tighter timetable and backed by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. So it appears to hold more promise for an Air Force under scrutiny after a variety of embarrassing setbacks and missteps raised questions about whether some of the worlds most fearsome weapons are being properly managed. The earlier approach, shown in internal Air Force documents and emails from 2008-09, included some of the ideas being floated again today by a new set of Air Force leaders, including bonus pay and other incentives to make more attractive the work of the men and women who operate, maintain and secure an Air Force fleet of 450 Minuteman 3 nuclear-tipped missiles. Then, as now, the Air Force also looked for ways to eliminate the most damaging disincentives parts of the job that can make missile duty onerous. Keep the faith, one commander wrote to his ICBM troops in an email in early 2009. Faith, however, seemed to falter. A series of AP reports last year documented training failures, low morale, deliberate violations of security rules, leadership lapses and other missteps. The AP also disclosed an unpublished study that found evidence of burnout and frustration among missile launch officers and ICBM security forces. In response, Hagel said something must be done promptly to restore public confidence in the nuclear force and ensure the weapons are under competent control.

Scottie Wilbekin had 21 points and six assists, and No. 3 Florida stepped up its defense in the second half to outlast Tennessee 67-58 Tuesday night for its 16th consecutive victory. Michael Frazier II added 11 points to help the Gators (22-2, 11-0 SEC) beat Tennessee in Knoxville for just the second time in their last nine attempts. Frazier and Wilbekin both made key 3-pointers down the stretch to put the game out of reach. Jarnell Stokes had 20 points and 11 rebounds for Tennessee (15-9, 6-5), which was seeking a victory over a highly ranked opponent to boost its NCAA tournament hopes. Jordan McRae had 17 points and Josh Richardson 13. After shooting 62.5 percent (15 of 24) in the first half, the Volunteers made only 29.2 percent (7 of 24) of their shots after halftime. When the teams last met, Florida routed Tennessee 67-41 in Gainesville on Jan. 25 to hand the Volunteers their most lopsided loss in Cuonzo Martins three-year coaching tenure. Tennessee shot 26.8 percent (15 of 56) overall and 1 of 19 from 3-point range in that game. But the Vols still had reason to feel confident. Tennessee entered the night having won seven of its last eight meetings with Florida at Thompson-Boling Arena. The Vols ugly performance in Gainesville last month ended a string of three straight Tennessee victories over Florida. And the Vols had a history of beating favored Florida teams. Twelve previous times in this series, an unranked Tennessee team had faced a Florida team ranked 10th or higher. Tennessee entered the night with a 7-5 record in those games.

But after a while, it was all Hurricanes. Despite dropping the No. 1 singles match early, Citrus muscled through the rest of the match, winning all six matches afterward, including a highly competitive No. 1 doubles match, to take the day 6-1 over host Lecanto. Just glad to be out here on this beautiful day, Citrus head coach James Martone said. Very happy with the way the kids came out. Very happy we were able to come over here and get a W. Lecanto is always respectful. Hated that their number one was out, Martone continued. I think it would have been a much different match. Lecantos Sam Alford stepped in for the injured Rishi Gurnani (day-to-day with a shoulder injury) and recorded the Panthers lone win in the meet, blanking Citrus Brady Hayes in straight sets 6-0, 6-0 in the No. 1 singles match to open the competition.

The key to success would be to penetrate inside. That happened very little for the Rams. Eastside didnt score in double figures in any period as the Rams fell to the Hurricanes, 42-30, as Citrus advanced to the regional final, set forSaturday at homeagainst visiting Land OLakes. We knew going in they were pretty good defensively, Radford said. We had to be able to penetrate their zone and we wanted to get the ball to the baseline. We wanted to attack with our penetration, but we didnt do a very good job all night long. Everything was extended out to the 3-point line. We didnt get anything inside. Eastside (13-11) led only once in this game, 8-7, after senior Jasmine Thomas, who had a game-high 18 points, scored off a rebound. After a couple of ties, Citrus (25-3) closed the first half on a 5-0 run for a 19-14 lead at break. The Hurricanes added to that lead in the third, again closing strong with three straight baskets from Treleasha Simmons, who finished with a team-high 12 points, for a commanding 32-21 advantage going into the Citrus girls hoops turns back Gainesville Eastside 42-30 See CANES/ Page B3 Warriors fall to Saints in regional semifinals RICHARDBURTON CorrespondentOCALA The Seven Rivers Christian girls basketball team just couldnt muster one last run in the Class 2A regional semifinals. The Warriors (15-11) battled back several times to take the lead from host St. John Lutheran after multiple deficits of at least seven points, but couldnt get one final rally and fell 60-55. Seven Rivers, which lost to St. John twice earlier this season, took its last lead with5:06left on a 3-pointer by Abby Kuntz at 44-42, before the Saints responded with a 17-6 run. Down 10 with1:44remaining, the Warriors got to within five with1:23remaining; however, they would be unable to get any closer.

Lecantos Mahima Tatam won the No. 2 singles 6-2, 6-0 over Paige Jordan to make the Panther girls 3-1 for the season. Citrus is now 2-1. However, the Panthers would have loved to have their No. 1 single, Madison Gamble beat Citrus counterpart Melanie Dodd. Dodd has never lost a regular season singles match and is now 52-0, but Gamble was hungry for the upset. Dodd and Gamble were both fatigued after the No. 1 singles team of Gamble and Tatam took two hours and 29 minutes to beat Dodd and Jordan 6-4, 7-6 (7-3). Both girls were feeling the pressure as they started out the match not knowing whether Citrus or Lecanto would take the match. Gamble took an early 3-1 lead in the first set. However, Dodd showed mental toughness by coming back to win the set 6-3. She ended up winning 11 straight games to win the second set 6-0. The score was misleading as Gamble and Dodd became like battle-fatigued warriors, holding on for every possible point. Dodd remained undefeated by getting through a real battle with steady nerves. Im relieved, she said. It was a good match. Dodd is used to being the tennis player no one wants to play. This runs in the family. Her older sister, Stephanie, was a No. 1 singles player at Citrus. She is now team captain at Southeastern University in Lakeland. God has gotten me through the matches, she said. Dodd doesnt have an overpowering serve or physical See PANTHERS/ Page B3

Eric van den HoogenON TENNIS Singles season here Theyve got game Watson not focused on names in Ryder Cup Associated PressLOS ANGELES This is what Tom Watson knows about the American with a big lead in the Ryder Cup standings. Jimmy Walker is 35. He already has three PGA Tour wins this year. And his hobby is creating photographs of the galaxy. The first book I read was, All About Astronomy, Watson said. If he makes the Ryder Cup team, maybe well have some common things to talk about. Watson was at Riviera on Tuesday, even though he is playing this week on the other side of the country in a Champions Tour event. Its typical for Ryder Cup captains to make appearances on the PGA Tour throughout the year to meet with the media and keep their eye on potential players. At 64, he is the oldest Ryder Cup captain in history. Some might be concerned that he is out of touch with todays best players. Ten of the top 15 players in the U.S. standings have never played in a Ryder Cup. That includes Jordan Spieth, who was born just two months before Watson was captain of the last American team that won in Europe. It was good to sit down at breakfast and see some of the old faces, like Davis Love and David Toms, but see some of the young faces, as well, Watson said. Had the opportunity to go down to the practice range and watch some of these guys try to hit it over that fence, which they have raised 30 feet up there. And its good to be back on tour and to kind of get a little bit more knowledge of some of the players who might be on the Ryder Cup team. Watson knows a lot more than he lets on. He realizes that theres still six months to go before nine players earn a spot on the team, and three weeks after that before he has to announce his three captains picks. Besides, hes more interested in the game than the name on the bag. What stood out to him about Walkers most recent victory Sunday at Pebble Beach was not how a six-shot lead dwindled to one, or even that Walker made it tough on himself by knocking a 25-foot birdie putt some 5 feet by the hole to create more drama than he intended. What Jimmy Walker did this last week is what Im looking for on that last hole, Watson said. Thats not an easy putt to make because that putt doesnt break. It just doesnt. You can play it right edge and it just hangs on the right edge. It doesnt break. And he made it. Thats what Im looking for, the guy thats going to make that 5-footer to win or to tie. Thats what Im looking for the guts it takes to do that. Watsons watched the last Ryder Cup at Medinah, and as much as he admired Europe for the greatest comeback ever by a visiting team, it ripped his heart out to see the Americans let another one get away. Hes well aware that Europe was a combined 25-under par on Sunday, compared with 8-under for the Americans. And he probably knows that of the 13 matches that went the distance at Medinah, the Americans won the 18th hole just one time. From his experience as a captain, making putts is out of his control. His job is to find the right players and the right combinations. Its too early to figure out who is going to be on this American team, only that it will be difficult to earn one of the nine spots because the competition is deeper than ever. The American team is based on PGA Tour earnings, and the majors count double. Whoever wins the PGA Championship, for example, will earn roughly the same points as Walker has accumulated with his three wins. Weve got a lot of golf between here and there, Walker said. I dont remember this much talk about the Ryder Cup in the last couple of years. I dont know if its because I havent been on the radar screen or what, but it seems like its a very big, pressing thing. He is probably right. One reason for such an early focus on the Ryder Cup is the stark reminder that this team both of them, really might include some new faces. Is that such a bad thing? Experience hasnt exactly helped the Americans over the last 20 years. Youre always going to have new players, Watson said. They earn their way. Associated PressJordan Spieth follows his drive from the third tee of the Pebble Beach Golf Links during the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament Saturday in Pebble Beach, Calif.

Citrus stretched the lead to 16, 39-23, after a pair of free throws from Simmons. We thought we were in pretty good position at halftime, but we came out a little flat in the second half, Radford said. One of our goals was to get to the free-throw line before them, but they beat us to the punch. They were a little more aggressive and calls went their way. Sometimes that is just how it is. The Hurricanes havent been this deep since the 1993-94 season, when Citrus then in Class 3A made a run to the state semifinals under thencoach Bruce Nelson. Now they are one game returning to the Lakeland Civic Center. I have told them all along that defense wins championships. I firmly believe that, Citrus head coach Dave Hamilton said. They step up when they have to, they dig a little deeper. Everything has been good for us. This was a tough Gainesville Eastside school. They are going to be a team to be reckoned with next year. said. They play that way every game. At the end of the game, I always know theyve given me all they had. Alyssa Gage led Seven Rivers with 28 points on 12-of-30 shooting. She scored 10 points in the third quarter and helped her team close a sevenpoint deficit to two heading into the final eight minutes. Shes unbelievable and plays so hard, Dreyer said. She left everything out there on the court. In the post, Alexis Zachar was dominant with 11 points, 21 rebounds and six blocks for Seven Rivers. St. John, a regional finalist a year ago, held the Warriors without a field goal for the first6:13and led 10-3 after a quarter of play. The Saints saw Seven Rivers miss its first eight shots of the game, but the tide turned as the game drew closer to halftime. The Warriors forced six turnovers in the second quarter and didnt commit a miscue of their own after eight in the opening eight minutes. Gage, who scored 13 points in the opening half on 6-of-16 shooting, helped Seven Rivers get to within 17-15 at halftime. For the half, the Warriors held St. John to 7-of-36 shooting, but also struggled to a 6-of-30 shooting mark. Seven Rivers missed all eight of its shots from 3-point range and was outrebounded 30-24 over the opening 16 minutes. Gage and Zachar were the only players to score for Seven Rivers in the first half, but its defense made up for the lack of the overall offense, as the visitors held the Saints scoreless the final5:35of the first half. The Warriors then took their first lead of the game, as Zachar converted a three-point play with5:53left in the third. From there, St. John ended a drought of7:42without a field goal, but the Warriors scored four straight points and held their biggest lead of the game at 24-21. The Saints, though, came up with a 9-0 run, but Seven Rivers battled back to within 30-29. St. John got a 3-pointer from Sara Poehlman, which started a 7-1 burst, before the Warriors closed the third on a 7-2 spurt and trailed 39-37. Zachar scored seven points in the third quarter and grabbed 12 of her rebounds after intermission. For the game, the Warriors shot 23-of-69 from the field and 7-of-14 from the foul line. Seven Rivers also struggled to a 1-of-13 mark from 3-point range and turned the ball over 23 times. Despite Zachars dominance, the Saints outrebounded Seven Rivers 54-48. Brylee Bartram led St. John with 13 points. Poehlman (12 points, 11 rebounds), Essence Bell (12 points, 15 rebounds), and Jennifer Bollinger (11 points) backed Bartram, a seventhgrader. Bell, also a seventh-grader, managed 15 rebounds from her guard spot and was able to get her 5-foot-4 frame to many loose balls on the weak side. The win was the fourth in the last five meetings for St. John in the series. Seven Rivers had won nine of the previous 10. Its a great rivalry and both teams always show a lot of heart, Dreyer said. St. John played great and so did our girls. I thought both teams gave everything they had. from there. Noah McGinnis defeated Dhruv Patel 6-1, 6-3 in No. 2 singles, earning Citrus first point. Joe Kelly followed in No. 3 singles, battling Lecantos Marshall King for the 7-6, 6-4 victory. Citrus Eric Vestervall won in No. 4 singles (8-6, 6-3) over Lecantos Chris Kaufman while Sean Flaherty did likewise for the Canes in No. 5 singles, winning a three-set decision of 26, 6-4, (12-10) over Lecantos Steven Schwartz in a tiebreaker. In doubles play, both matches saw some spirited competition between the two schools. The Panther duo of Alford and Schwartz managed a two-game comeback late in No. 1 doubles, but the Citrus pair of Hayes and McGinnis were able to hold Lecanto back in a 10-3 tiebreaker; winning the pro-set 9-8. Lecantos Patel and King rallied similarly in No. 2 doubles but were unable to catch up to Citrus Kelly and Vestervall, who ultimately won 8-5. When you play a county team you know its going to be a hard match, Lecanto head coach Jack Hall said. And while we came out on the short end 6-1, the individual scores were a lot closer than that. Hopefully (Gurnani) will come back soon, Hall added. Hell be dayto-day for now, but hopefully its going to work out if he can just rehab during the season. Keep (his shoulder) on ice. Next up for Lecanto is a road meet against the Vanguard Knights in Ocala on Thursday with a 4 p.m. start time, while Citrus hosts Crystal River at 4 p.m. Tennessee fired up the crowd by having the players walk through a walkway in the Thompson-Boling Arena stands to get to the floor, allowing fans to greet them on their way. The student section behind one basket waved orange glow sticks as Tennessees starting lineup was introduced. That atmosphere might have caused the Vols to get a little too amped up early on. After a basket by Stokes gave the Vols an early 2-0 lead, Florida went on a 10-0 run by scoring seven points off five Tennessee turnovers in the first 4 1/2 minutes. But once the Vols settled down and started taking care of the ball, they got back into the game by capitalizing on strong shooting. The team that made just 15 baskets all game in the loss at Gainesville last month matched that total by halftime Tuesday. Tennessee made 14 of its first 21 shots to turn that early 10-2 deficit into a 32-26 advantage. Florida regained the lead by going on a 16-4 run that started late in the first half and carried over to the opening minutes of the second half. strength but is consistent and doesnt beat herself. The Citrus coach was proud of Dodds battle. Its Melanie, said Citrus coach Scott Waters. Melanie is a fighter. Shes a champ. For the past two years, every time we play, its been 4-3. Its just a matter of who walks away with the four and who walks away with the three. Next time, hopefully, it will be us. The Lecanto High coach was happy to take the victory. We won, said Lecanto coach Sammie Hall. The girls were awesome. The No. 2 doubles team of Simi Shah and Chynna Liu won the first match, beating Leah Stanley and Juliann Johnson 6-2, 6-1. Natalie Dodd, Melanies younger sister, won the No. 5 singles, beating Andrea De La Cruz 6-4, 6-0. Lecantos Megan Jervis took the No. 4 singles, beating Stanley 6-2, 6-2. Shah then beat Johnson 6-0, 6-1 to take the No. 3 singles. Citrus plays Crystal River on Thursday at 4 p.m. Lecanto is at Vanguard on Thursday.

He has averaged 27 points per game during that span. Dallas Dirk Nowitzki sprained his left ankle in the second quarter and was taken to the locker room for observation.

The Cavaliers, who were routed 124-80 in Sacramento on Jan. 12, took a double-figure lead early in the second quarter and were in control the remainder of the game. Cleveland has won three in a row for the second time this season. Anthony Bennett, the No. 1 pick in the draft who has struggled most of the season, recorded career highs with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Dion Waiters added 20 points for Cleveland. DeMarcus Cousins scored 21 points to lead the Kings, who have lost 10 of 12 and seven straight on the road.Grizzlies 92, Wizards 89MEMPHIS, Tenn. Nick Calathes and Marc Gasol scored 18 points each, and the Memphis Grizzlies survived a career-best 37 points from Washingtons Bradley Beal to defeat the Wizards 92-89. Beal was unable to convert down the stretch, though, including missing a 21-footer with 12.9 seconds left that would have tied the game. Zach Randolph split two free throws with 11.5 seconds left to give the Grizzlies the 92-89 lead. John Walls 3-pointer with about 1 second left rattled around before popping out, giving Memphis the win. Randolph, Courtney Lee and James Johnson scored 13 apiece for Memphis, and Randolph grabbed 10 rebounds. Calathes also had six assists for the Grizzlies.

SEC hoops upgrade taking steps forward Associated PressMONTGOMERY, Ala. The Southeastern Conferences efforts to upgrade mens basketball remain a work in progress. The SEC took steps to make teams upgrade nonconference schedules starting this season. The goal is to boost power ratings and land more than last years three teams in the NCAA tournament. Anthony Grant and Alabama played No. 4 Wichita State and No. 8 Duke and visited UCLAs Pauley Pavilion but lost all three games. Most other SEC teams have also heeded the call from Commissioner Mike Slive. Still, just past the halfway point of the league schedule, not a whole lot has changed for the SEC. Two teams No. 3 Florida and No. 14 Kentucky seem like shoo-ins for the NCAA field, and no one else can feel the least bit comfortable. Alabama, which was 9-14 going into Tuesday nights game with Mississippi, has been the strongest example that a beefed-up slate isnt a cure-all for a league that is a powerhouse in football but gets less respect in hoops. This is probably the toughest nonconference schedule weve put together, and we put it together for a reason, said Grant, whose team lost several players during the offseason. To try to position ourselves, if we were fortunate enough to win some of those games, to have a chance at the postseason, and also to help strengthen our league in terms of RPI. Unfortunately for us it didnt work out that way with our nonconference. Alabama had the ninth-toughest nonconference schedule nationally, up 69 spots from last season, according to CBSSports.coms rankings. Kentucky (59th to 14th), Mississippi (271st to 103rd) and LSU (234th to 137th) are also among the teams who made big leaps in strength of nonconference schedule. The NCAAs latest official power ratings released Monday had Florida at No. 5 and Kentucky at No. 12. The next SEC teams are Tennessee (47th) and Missouri (50th). League athletic directors agreed last May to submit their mens basketball nonconference schedules for approval and hired former NCAA tournament guru Greg Shaheen as a scheduling consultant. That came after only Florida, Mississippi and Missouri advanced to the NCAA tournament last March, only the second time in 23 years just three teams got in. The Gators were the only ones to survive the opening weekend. Slive, a former chair of the NCAA selection committee, wanted a change. He was very clear in saying that the three NCAA bids that the league received last year was just simply unacceptable, was his term, said associate commissioner Mark Whitworth, who was placed in charge of mens basketball. Whitworth said the new policy was implemented when it was too late for some teams to get out of contracts for nonconference games. He expects more of an impact next season. He said scheduling is an important piece of the endeavor, but creating a league where more top prospects want to play is the long-term ambition. Scheduling, said CBSSportss Jerry Palm, isnt the main problem. The problem is theyve got to upgrade their talent, said Palm, who runs a bracket. The schedule doesnt matter if you dont have the talent to play it. Meanwhile, attendance has dwindled for the second straight year. Two years ago, 11,513 fans on average attended SEC game. That dropped to 10,571 last season and 9,745 so far in 2013-14. Competitively, the SEC is perfectly fine at the top, where Florida was 21-2, unbeaten in league games and had won 15 straight going into Tuesday nights game at Tennessee. Kentucky (18-5, 8-2) has returned to form after having to settle for an NIT berth last season. Palm thinks the SEC has made some strides. Hes got Florida and Kentucky in the tournament and has also penciled in Tennessee and Missouri on his bracket with LSU, Ole Miss and Arkansas still in the mix. Florida and Kentucky are the only safe teams, Palm said. Everybody else, they could all miss. Palm has the SEC rated seventhbest among the conferences, led by the Big 12 and Big Ten. ESPNs Joe Lunardi projects five SEC teams as making the field, including LSU. Lunardi figures that number is more likely to go down than up. He said hes got LSU and Missouri as the last two teams in and Ole Miss is one of the first four out. I certainly noticed some of the efforts at better scheduling and I would say thats still the way to go as a rule, Lunardi said. Good scheduling is almost never going to take you out. Bad scheduling will often. So youre gambling in the right direction most of the time when you schedule up. Gators coach Billy Donovan said the play of many SEC teams changes significantly from November to February, even if perception doesnt. Its kind of like you play nonconference, then you get into your league, Donovan said. But once you get into the league in January, the leagues got an identity. And its really, really hard to change that identity. It really, really is. Associated PressFlorida guard Michael Frazier II goes in for a basket Saturday as Alabama guard Trevor Releford watches in Gainesville. The Gators and Kentucky are the only ranked teams in the Southeastern Conference, which is hoping to land more than last years three teams in the NCAA tournament.

Associated PressSOCHI, Russia The most decorated country in Winter Olympic history earned four more medals Tuesday, and the most famous snowboarder in the world had his hopes for a third straight gold in the halfpipe dashed. Norway won double gold in the cross-country freestyle sprints while picking up silver medals in the womens sprint and in the womens 10-kilometer biathlon pursuit. That gave the Norwegians the medal lead as the games concluded their fifth day, and it pushed their overall total to 317 since the Winter Olympics began in 1924. The United States saw several of its best hopes evaporate, including Shaun White, the flamboyant snowboarder who was dethroned by Iouri Podladtchikov. Another U.S. gold medal prospect, cross-country skier Kikkan Randall, was eliminated in the qualifying rounds of the womens freestyle sprint. Maiken Caspersen Falla of Norway took the gold in that race, with teammate Ingvild Flugstad Oestberg earning silver. Ola Vigen Hattestad captured the mens sprint title in a race marred by a threeskier collision. Emil Joensson of Sweden, who had all but given up earlier in the race, grabbed the bronze after Sergey Ustiugov of Russia, Marcus Hellner of Sweden and Anders Gloeersen of Norway were involved in a crash that left them sprawled across the course. Soft snow caused a number of spills throughout the day.Cross-countryHattestad took the early lead, avoided the crash behind him and then held off Teodor Peterson of Sweden for the gold. Vesna Fabjan of Slovenia won the bronze in the womens sprint.BiathlonDarya Domracheva of Belarus led for most of the womens 10-kilometer pursuit race, missing only the last target before finishing in 29 minutes, 30.7 seconds. Tora Berger of Norway took silver, and Teja Gregorin of Slovenia claimed the bronze.Slopestyle skiingDara Howell won gold with a score of 94.20, trouncing the rest of the field, and Kim Lamarre earned bronze to give the Canadians seven medals in four days of snowboarding and freestyle skiing, including three events in which they took two of the top three spots. Devin Logan of the United States took silver. SpeedskatingLee Sang-hwa won the womens 500 meters and set an Olympic record of 37.28 seconds in her second race, beating the mark of 37.30 set by Catriona Le May Doan at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. Her combined time of 1 minute, 14.70 seconds also was an Olympic record, beating Le May Doans mark of 1:14.75. Olga Fatkulina of Russia won the silver, and Margot Boer of the Netherlands got the bronze.LugeNatalie Geisenbergers victory was Germanys fifth straight in womens luge. Teammate Tatjana Huefner won the silver and Erin Hamlin picked up the bronze, the first singles luge medal ever for the United States.Ski jumpingCarina Vogt won the first gold medal in womens ski jumping.

Or maybe just one of those bad nights. That debate will last a long time. Shaun White stood at the top of the Olympic halfpipe Tuesday night, hunched over, hands resting above his knees. He high-fived his coach, clapped his hands, then jumped in for a ride that would decide if all the calculated choices he had made over a winter full of injuries, distractions and angst would pay off. One jump, 15 feet above the pipe, was perfect. The second one looked good, too. Then, the trick they call the Yolo the one a rival invented but White had turned into his own. His snowboard skittered across the halfpipe on the landing. White finished the run with a flourish and raised his index finger, trying to woo the judges who know, as well as anyone, what hes done for his sport. No sale. No medal, either. He finished fourth. The worlds best-known, mostsuccessful and best-marketed snowboarder lost to a man they call the IPod, and now, he may never hear the end of it. I would definitely say that tonight was just one of those nights, White said after falling to Iouri Podladtchikov, the 25-year-old Russianborn inventor of the Yolo. The tricks I learned getting ready for the competition will carry on for a couple years in this sport. Its a bummer. I had one of those nights. The Japanese pair of 15-year-old Ayumu Hirano and 18-year-old Taku Hiraoka won silver and bronze, and the Americans were shut out on the halfpipe for the first time since the sport was introduced to the Olympics in 1998. Almost unthinkable, especially since White joined the mix and won the first of his two gold medals in 2006. He wanted to win two this year one in halfpipe and one in the newly introduced sport of slopestyle but ended up with none. The effervescent Podladtchikov, who now lives in and competes for Switzerland, thought up the Yolo trick first and landed it first. White watched the replay of I-Pod doing it last March in an event in Europe and immediately saw what he needed to do. Very quickly, he did it better than Podladtchikov and landed it twice in key events leading up to the Olympics. I-Pod tried it three times at the Winter X Games last month and fell all three times. Practice, he called it. Those falls, and a hundred other reasons, are why White came into these games the heavy favorite to become only the seventh person to win three straight Olympic golds in an individual winter event. I saw videos of Shaun doing it really well, Podladtchikov said. I got bummed. I said, Damn, thats my trick and hes doing it better than me. I guess I was doing it a little better tonight. The Yolo You Only Live Once includes a total of 1440 degrees of spin. Its two head-over-heels flips and two 360-degree turns. Four years ago, it was unthinkable, but not anymore.

He was asked by a student if would change anything in his career. Upton didnt hesitate before answering, Anything in baseball? Last year. The whole last season. Its an understandable wish. After signing the biggest free-agent contract in Braves history $75.25 million for five years Upton endured a nightmarish 2013 season. He hit only .184, struck out in more than one-third of his at-bats and was benched. The only highlights were playing beside his younger brother, Justin Upton, in the outfield and seeing the Braves advance to the playoffs. Definitely it was tough, B.J. Upton said. You know, baseball is going to throw you some curveballs, so to speak. After missing far too many curveballs and fastballs and sliders Upton is writing off the season as an aberration. Maybe not to that magnitude, but at some point I think every player goes through that type of season, he said. As long as you can learn from it so that some of the things that happened wont happen again, thats all you can ask. The new start begins with spring training. Braves pitchers and catchers report on Thursday. The full squad reports on Feb. 18, and the first full-squad workout is Feb. 19. Upton impressed his teammates and manager Fredi Gonzalez by continuing to spend extra time on his swing through his disappointing year. Hes one of the hardest workers on the team, said third baseman Chris Johnson. Hes always in the cage. Those two brothers are workhorses. Assistant hitting coach Scott Fletcher said Upton never changed his demeanor, even after losing his starting job. He didnt pout, Fletcher said. He just kept working. He was ready for anything that Fredi needed from him. That shows a lot of his character. I look for him to come back and do well. Thats just the type of competitor he is. Hes had a lot of great years and hes going to continue to do that. I think hes going to have some great years for us. Upton hit 28 homers and had 31 stolen bases in 2012 with Tampa Bay. He hit only nine homers with 12 steals last season. The Braves need Upton, 29, to at least approach his career .248 batting average. Upton worked on his swing at his offseason home in Tampa, where he had a visit from Braves hitting coach Greg Walker. My reports from Greg have been positive, said Braves general manager Frank Wren. I think hes approached the offseason well. From what Greg has seen of his work, he thinks its steps in the right direction. After last season, Wren said Upton may have tried too hard to show he deserved the big contract. N.Y. Yankees introduce Tanaka Associated PressNEW YORK Masahiro Tanaka was introduced by the Yankees on Tuesday after chartering a Boeing 787 Dreamliner for his trip from Tokyo to New York. The 25-year-old righthander agreed Jan. 22 to a $155 million, seven-year contract and stopped in New York for a news conference at Yankee Stadium en route to the teams spring training complex in Tampa, where workouts start this weekend. Tanaka put on his No. 19 jersey and said in English, Im very happy to be a Yankee. Tanaka charted the Japan Airlines plane, which seats about 200, at what was reported to be a cost of about $200,000 for a flight said to include five passengers and his poodle Haru. New York held the news conference in its Legends Suite Club rather than its regular press conference room adjacent to the clubhouse. Yankees spokesman Jason Zillo said it was the teams most-attended news conference since Hideki Matsui was introduced before the 2003 season. This is Yankee big. This is Steinbrenner big, general manager Brian Cashman said. Tanaka was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA last year, leading the Rakuten Golden Eagles to the Japan Series title. He said his first meal in New York was sushi from a grocery store. Tanaka spoke with Matsui and understands the Yankees win-or-else mentality. Ive heard that this place can be very harsh to you at times, he said through a translator. Broncos contend on the fly in NFL Associated PressENGLEWOOD, Colo. John Elways philosophy is to address immediate needs in free agency, even though some of his own veterans may prove too pricey to keep around. Eric Decker and Knowshon Moreno both said theyd love to stay in Denver, but they might find more lucrative offers elsewhere when free agency begins in a month. Unlike the Seattle Seahawks, who throttled the Broncos in the Super Bowl, Denver has a highpriced quarterback who takes up a good chunk of the salary cap, limiting what the team can spend elsewhere. Mannings salary cap charge for 2014 is $17.5 million, same as last season, which was more than Seattles entire starting defense and about 25 times as much as Russell Wilsons $681,000 cap number. Yeah, but Ill tell you right now its worth it for us to have Peyton Manning, Elway said. Thats just part of when you get a quality quarterback like that we have in Peyton Manning. You know thats going to be a big chunk of your salary cap, but we got to figure out ways to find the right players. At the right prices. Elway said he has no problem continuing to build a team around Manning even though nobody knows how long No. 18 will be in the Broncos huddle beyond next season. Manning confirmed during Super Bowl week that he intends to play next season. Manning and the Broncos are out to do something that no team has done since the Buffalo Bills in 1993 make it back to the Super Bowl the year after losing it. Elway, the teams executive vice president, had been busy on a blueprint long before the Super Bowl blowout. He knows he could lose Decker, Moreno and guard Zane Beadles on offense and he has to rebuild a defense that was obliterated by an injury epidemic. The Broncos have 18 unrestricted and three restricted free agents, but Elway has to be prudent because big deals are looming next year for Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and maybe Von Miller. Hes hit the jackpot in free agency two years in a row, first with Manning in 2012 and then with Wes Welker, Louis Vasquez, Shaun Phillips, Terrance Knighton and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie last year. Elway expects to be busy again this year. He has about $25 million in projected cap space right now but could free up more by asking Champ Bailey and Jacob Tamme to restructure their contracts and by releasing Chris Kuper and Joel Dreessen. If Moreno leaves, the Broncos have Montee Ball ready to step in as the featured back. He came on strong down the stretch, finishing the season with 120 carries for 561 yards and four touchdowns. Nearly a third of his carries moved the sticks, ranking third in the league and tops among rookies. Associated PressDenver Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno (27) is part of a group of free agents that the team will have to decide whether or not to resign. Associated PressNew York Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka speaks Tuesday during a news conference at Yankee Stadium in New York.

Section CWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE This is the biggest thing that has ever happened in my life, Fuller said. I woke up the next morning with a huge grin on my face. Fuller was recently named the school districts 2014 School-Related Employee of the Year. However, shes somewhat puzzled as to why. While you are sitting there, you say Oh, I would really love it, but there are so many other people that are so deserving, she said. You listen to things they have done and say Oh, he or she is so good. You just dont think of yourself that way. I dont know what it was about me that made the difference. I am happy that it did, but I dont know what. The memory of her name being called is a blur; however, she remembers looking at her principal, who gave her a shout and smile of approval. I have such respect for Mrs. (Nancy) Simon, Fuller said of her principal. I have been in three or four different schools. It trickles down. Your administration sets the tone for the school. Mrs. Simon has high expectations and expects you to be on your game and to do the best you can. She doesnt expect you to be perfect, but she does expect you to do your best. This is the first occupation that I have been in where I am so appreciated. People appreciate what you do for them or with them and they let you know. Fuller has been with the Citrus County School District since 2008 and a member of Central Ridge Elementary School staff since 2010. I worked for myself for 20 years as a jeweler and then the economy started getting bad, she said. So I started substituting. She explained that her journey began as a daily substitute teacher and later segued into a long-term substitute. I have never had children of my own, and I never expected to be at the primary school age, Fuller said. But immediately you start getting hugs. They dont see how old you are, size or your faults.

EDUCATION NOTES Citrus High School class of slates 20-year reunion for second weekend in June Three Citrus County Council members took part as judges for the recent Citrus Regional Science and Engineering Fair, while the CCC itself offered two $100 awards to boy and girl middle school students. Many of the prizes are certificates, said Inverness resident Bud Osborn, chairman of the CCC education committee. A certificate is great, but a kid sure appreciates 100 bucks also. The awards caused the audience to gasp, Osborn said. Middle school students were chosen for the cash awards to keep them interested for when they can compete as high school students, Osborn explained. As the CCC is comprised of environmental advocates in addition to homeowners associations and other civic groups, the winning projects were chosen because they were geared toward water conservation. Winners were Madison Blankenship for Waves Gone Wild and Gavin Coe for Whatever Floats Your Boat. The three CCC judges were John Wade, Dr. Pat Wade and Roger Dobronyi.

Now, she has multiple duties kindergarten mathematics, first-grade reading, lunch supervisor, front desk assistant and much more. The only thing I have not been certified to do yet is ride the bus, Fuller said with a giggle. Nonetheless, her dream is currently evolving. I just started back to school at the University of West Florida, Fuller said. They have an online education program where I will receive my teaching certificate with ESE (Exceptional Student Education), ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) and reading endorsements. I want to teach primary school ESE. Her focus and goal for her own classroom is to have every adult in a childs life involved in the classroom. Every child has at least two parents who have parents, Fuller explained. There are at least one to six people involved in this childs life that can be involved in school. I think we are not asking enough of the family. Every classroom needs adult role models. It would make a huge difference in the classroom. In the meantime, she is enjoying her own parking space and the opportunity to represent the district at the state level.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@ chronicleonline.com.EDUCATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY12, 2014 C3 $1 0FF Bowl or 50 OFF Cup Dans Famous New England Clam Chowder Dine In Only.

Withlacoochee Technical Institute (WTI) is among those schools that have a lot to celebrate. WTIs mission is to provide the highest-quality academic and technical education for current and emerging careers in a competitive workforce. WTI lives this mission every day. Lets look at some statistics. WTIs overall completion rate is 91 percent. Four programs Automotive Collision Repair and Refinishing, Commercial Foods and Culinary Arts, Massage Therapy and Patient Care Assistant had a 100 percent completion rate. In placing graduates, WTI has an overall placement rate of 90 percent. Seven programs Automotive Service Technology, Correctional Officer, Cosmetology, Electricity, Firefighter, Industrial Machinery Maintenance and Repair and Practical Nursing had a 100 percent placement rate. Several programs at WTI prepare students for a licensure exam. Ninety-four percent of the students in those programs passed the licensing exam for their respective occupation. WTI has exceeded state benchmarks and state averages for program completion, placement and licensure rates. As I have written in previous articles, earning an industry certification is paramount in a students tenure at WTI. I am proud to say that 421 industry certifications were earned by students enrolled in our school. Students in need of financial assistance can apply for a Pell Grant to assist them with their school expenses. Pell grant awards of $1,169,483 were issued to WTI students. I am pleased with the progress Withlacoochee Technical Institute (WTI) has made in preparing students for the workplace. Our teachers have done an excellent job of integrating academic subjects into the occupational subject they are teaching. They have done an excellent job showing students how important it is to know the whys and wherefores behind tasks they are completing. They have done an excellent job in preparing our students for acquiring an industry certification; the true measure of a persons ability to do the job. Our students are entering high wage, high skilled jobs as a result. That alone is cause for celebration. Career and Technical Education is playing an important role in both in the education of the student and in the development of a highly skilled workforce. To find out more about WTI, please visit our website or tour our school on the afternoon of March 6 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.Denise Willis is the director of Withlacoochee Technical Institute.

He plans to pursue a major in aerospace engineering. The Student of the Month program is sponsored by the West Citrus Elks Lodge in order to bring recognition to outstanding youths in the area. Rishi Gurnani Jonna Bond Associated PressWASHINGTON Columbus McKinney is taking his fifth Advanced Placement course at Woodrow Wilson High School in Washington, undeterred even though he didnt score high enough to get college credit on two of the AP classes he took previously. McKinney said he thinks the extra workload is worth it no matter the grade on the final exam. It prepares you for what its going to be like when you get to college, the 17-year-old said during a break from his AP Physics course. McKinney is part of a larger trend: The number of U.S. public school students taking Advanced Placement classes nearly doubled over the past decade. The class of 2013 took 3.2 million AP exams, according to a College Board report released Tuesday. Advanced Placement exams, which started in the 1950s, offer a way for students to earn college credit while still in high school and are offered in 34 different subjects. The classes are designed to be rigorous and are graded in a uniform way, meaning students grades from one school can be matched up against those from another. Proponents say they help transition students to college and allow graduates to stand out in the college admission process. Much of the expansion stems from an effort at the district, state and federal levels to make AP classes available to low-income and minority students. The report finds that the number of low-income graduates who took an AP exam has quadrupled in the last decade. The College Board points out theres room for more expansion: About 40 percent of public U.S. high schools dont offer any AP classes. And nearly 300,000 students who were identified by standardized tests as having potential to succeed in AP graduated without taking the classes. It is reaching out directly to students identified as potentially ready for AP classes to encourage them to take them and has teamed with Google to get more female and minority students into AP science and math classes. There are questions, though, about whether doors to AP classes have been opened too wide and whether schools are doing enough to assist students in them. In 2013, about 57 percent of AP exams had a score of 3 or higher the grade many colleges and universities require to award college credit compared with 61 percent a decade earlier, according to the College Board. That means students did not score a 3 or higher on about 1.4 million exams. Looking at it in another way, about 20 percent of graduates in 2013 earned a 3 or higher on an AP exam, compared with about 12 percent of graduates in 2003. Research is unclear on whether there are long-term benefits to taking an AP class if the student fails, said Kristin Klopfenstein, executive director of the Education Innovation Institute at the University of Northern Colorado, who has studied the issue. Among those students, she suspects its only those who were on the cusp of passing who get much benefit. At McKinneys high school, which is in an affluent part of Washington and has a diverse population from around the city, more than 20 AP classes are offered. About 600 students took an AP exam last year about twice as many as a decade earlier. The doubling wasnt an accident. In McKinneys AP physics class, students excitedly surrounded teacher Angela Benjamins desk on a recent day as purple glowed from a plasma globe in the darkened classroom. Benjamin said theres no doubt in her mind that students benefit from her class even if they fail the AP exam. She said she became a believer about 10 years ago when two students who sat in the back of her class could orally answer all the questions, but didnt pass the AP exam. She said she later learned they took physics and engineering in college. I dont think either one of them wouldve done that without that class, she said. AP classes double in popularity Associated PressA student writes notes in the Advanced Placement Physics class Friday at Woodrow Wilson High School in Washington, D.C. The College Board says in a new report that the number of U.S. public students taking Advanced Placement classes doubled over the past decade. The class of 2013 of took 3.2 million AP exams.

This law requires businesses to serve all people equally no matter what race, color, religion or nationality they are. It also protects voting rights for all citizens.* We usually use a 12-hour clock, so that there are two 12-hour parts of our day, a.m. and p.m. For example, 1 a.m. is one hour after midnight, and 1 p.m. is one hour after noon. But a 24-hour clock doesnt start over after noon. It goes on to 13:00, 14:00, etc. So on a 12-hour clock, the Games will begin at 8:14 p.m. Moscow time.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY12, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Vinoba Bhave, an Indian advocate for human rights who died in 1982, said, Innumerable actions are going on through us all the time. If we started counting them, we should never come to an end. Luckily, it is not that tough at the bridge table. But the more counting you do, the better you will play our theme this week. In todays deal, look at the auction and the West and North hands. South is in four spades. West leads the diamond ace. How should he continue the defense? North, holding a low doubleton, reasonably chose to use Stayman. (If he had responded three no-trump, that contract could also have been defeated.) South correctly rebid two hearts when holding four cards in each major. North jumped to three no-trump. And South, knowing his partner had four spades, corrected back to game in that strain. When the dummy comes down, a good defender first checks out the high-card points. South indicated 15-17, dummy has 13, and West holds seven. That leaves 3-5 for East. So East could have one winner to go with Wests diamond ace-king. But where is the fourth defensive trick? Now count the suit lengths. Dummy has three hearts, South showed four, and West has five. East must have a singleton. This is Wests best chance. At trick two not after cashing the diamond king, a card needed as an entry West shifts to a heart.

My 14-year-old son loves sports. He is wellrounded, makes excellent grades and has good friends. This year, he is again on the school basketball team, but he is the only one who sits on the bench. He doesnt say much, but I can tell he is discouraged. While the team has a couple of stars, most are at the same skill level as my son. His mother is so upset about this that she wants to go to the school board. Someone mentioned that my son is being punished because he missed a practice during Christmas break. He told his coaches ahead of time that he would be gone. Before the break, he played about one minute per game. He hasnt played at all since. Should parents step up to the coaches and risk further punishment? This is his first year with these particular coaches. Are they just testing him? Why would such terrible treatment make him want to play next year? Upset Dad Dear Dad: Some coaches believe this type of punishment is a test of a players resolve a take it like a man mentality. We think it is illadvised, particularly at the high school level, and discourages kids who are not into macho mind games. Some schools give coaches complete autonomy over the sports programs, but this can lead to all kinds of abuses. Before getting involved, however, we urge you to discuss this with your son. While he undoubtedly appreciates your support and concern, he may prefer to handle this in his own way, and we hope you will respect his decision. Dear Annie: Will you speak to my wife of 30 years? She has many wonderful attributes, and I love her. She is, however, late for everything. Our families and friends learned to accept her tardiness for social engagements. But I cannot abide being late for church every week. With all eyes upon us, we must edge past everyone in order to find a seat. I hate doing this after the service has started. We live only 10 minutes away, so I cant understand why my wife isnt ready on time. Even if she doesnt care about herself, I am humiliated that she has so little regard for me and the people we have to climb over every week to reach a seat. It puts me in the wrong frame of mind for church. Ive told her this is important to me, but she scoffs and does the same thing the following week. Will you please tell her to get ready on time? Losing My Religion Dear Losing: Some procrastinators simply have difficulty with organizational skills, and nothing will change if they arent willing to work on it. But we think your wife enjoys the attention she gets by arriving late to social functions. Since church is a particular issue, we strongly suggest you attend separately. Arrange transportation if necessary, and then go on your own so you can arrive on time. And save a seat for your wife. Dear Annie: I have some input for Only Child in Massachusetts, the 70-yearold woman who stated it was beneficial to be the only child. I have three sisters. Growing up was a challenge. We had to share clothes, bathroom time, telephone time and other luxuries. We fought like cats and dogs, but we learned the value of sharing, laughing and communicating in ways only siblings can. Growing up, I sometimes wished I were the only child. But now I would not want it any other way. My sisters and I are very close and talk to each other daily. Do we still fight? Yes, but instead of hitting each other on the arm, we phone and laugh about it. The relationship we have is treasured and special.
