Theyre unwanted by employers, rejected by insurers, struggling to cover rising medical costs and praying to reach Medicare age before a health crisis. These luckless people, most in their 50s and 60s, have emerged this month as early winners under the nations new health insurance system. Along with their peers who are selfemployed or whose jobs do not offer insurance, they have been signing up for coverage in large numbers, submitting new-patient forms at doctors offices and filling prescriptions at pharmacies. I just cried I was so relieved, said Maureen Grey, a 58-year-old Chicagoan who finally saw a doctor this month after a fall in September left her in constant pain. Laid off twice from full-time jobs in the past five years, she saw her income drop from $60,000 to $17,800 a year. Now doing temp work, she was uninsured for 18 months before she chose a marketplace plan for $68 a month. Americans ages 55 to 64 make up 31 percent of new enrollees in the new health insurance marketplaces, the largest segment by age group, according to the federal governments latest figures. They represent a glimmer of success for President Barack Obamas beleaguered law. The Great Recession hit them hard and for some its Boomers biggest winners from health law Many lost insurance in recent recession; have been driving new enrollments MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerYou might say Dr. Shalesh Kaushal has a thing for eyes. Specifically, his passion is the retina, which sends messages to the brain that blue is blue and orange is orange or whats clear to some is fuzzy or dark to others. Dr. Kaushal is an ophthalmologist, surgeon and scientist. He doesnt just treat diseases that cause blindness, he searches for ways to prevent those diseases or lessen their effects. And he has his eye, so to speak, on Citrus Memorial hospital. Dr. Kaushal, who treats patients in Gainesville and The Villages, performs surgery on Fridays at Citrus Memorial. Hes about to open his third office at the Citrus Memorial Health System medical office building across the street from the hospital. Dr. Kaushal, whose credentials include formerly heading the retina department at the University of Florida and former chief of ophthalmology at the University of Massachusetts medical school, predicts a thriving practice in Inverness. The hospital is a very good environment, he said. My patients with The Villages, theyre very discerning people, and they uniformly have a very good experience at the hospital. My patients absolutely love coming to Citrus Memorial. Dr. Kaushal learned of Citrus Memorial after opening his office in The Villages. While visiting with physician friends in Citrus County, they suggested he open an office locally. He then met and developed friendships with Citrus Memorial Chief Executive Officer Ryan Beaty and Dr. Charles Nutinsky, the hospitals chief medical officer. Both asked if Dr. Kaushal would be interested in providing surgical services at Citrus Memorial, where his expertise was unavailable. The hospital provided about $300,000 in surgical equipment, and Dr. Kaushal performs about four Eye doc looks to Citrus MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleRetinal surgeon Dr. Shalesh Kaushal performs surgery Friday morning on a patient at Citrus Memorial Health System in Inverness.

Still at issue is the county-imposed Municipal Services Benefit Unit (MSBU) for fire services and whether or not the city will join. In a statement from Sheriff Jeff Dawsy, who said he does not have a fight in the ongoing dispute between city and county officials, he expressed his strong opinion that the city should either join the countywide MSBU, which would result in an assessment being levied on residents and businesses in the city limits, or that the city government should pay its proportionate share of the cost of fire services. The bill would be $349,000 for the MSBU, plus the $250,000 city residents already pay for a fire service annual tax. City officials have expressed displeasure regarding the process in which the Municipal Services Benefit Unit was implemented, Dawsy said. This only serves to delay the ultimate decision that must be made about the fire services for Inverness. Commissioner Joe Meek, who also attended the Feb. 7 meeting, said, We had a lively discussion and talked about funding the fire services. Although we dont presently have a resolution, county administrators and the board will continue to work to find a resolution to the issues. Inverness City Manager Frank DiGiovanni said no progress was made at the meeting. We left the meeting pretty much City, county at impasse over fire services MSBU See MSBU/ Page A7 Two arrested on meth charges A.B.

Associated PressMIAMI A South Florida artist is facing a criminal charge after police say he smashed a $1 million vase at Miamis new art museum in what appears to be a form of protest. Maximo Caminero, 51, was charged with criminal mischief after Sundays incident at the Perez Art Museum Miami. According to a Miami Police Department arrest affidavit, a security guard told officers that Caminero picked up a colored vase by Chinese dissident artist Ai Weiwei. When told to put it down, the security guard said Caminero smashed it on the floor. A police affidavit said Caminero told officers he broke the vase to protest the museums lack of local artist displays. Caminero, a painter who lives in Miami, declined comment when reached by telephone Monday. He said he would have an afternoon news conference today. Im going to answer all the questions, he said. The police affidavit lists the value of the vase as $1 million, quoting the museums security officials. Criminal mischief can be a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison when the property damaged is worth more than $1,000. Caminero had a recent showing at the JF Gallery in West Palm Beach that offered patrons a chance to meet him and view a sampling of the work from his 30-year career as an artist. According to PAMMs web site, the vase is one of more than a dozen that are part of a floor installation. Each vase is partially painted in bright colors. Behind the installation are a series of three blackand-white photos showing Ai holding a vase and then letting it drop to the ground, smashing into pieces.

Groups fix 500 cats and dogs CHRISVANORMER Staff writerFive hundred cats and dogs are scheduled this month to be pulled out of the gene pool thanks to a special promotion put together by three pet agencies in the county. Five hundred is a big number for reproductive dogs and cats, but spaying and neutering them stops a future flood of puppies and kittens that could multiply exponentially into the millions. According to the National Humane Education Society, In six years, one intact female dog and her offspring can produce 67,000 puppies. In six years, one intact cat and her offspring can produce 66,088 kittens. Thanks to the Its Hip to Snip spay and neuter promotion organized by SnippetCitrus, Humanitarians of Florida and Citrus County Animal Services, the county wont have to deal with a potential 16.75million dogs and nearly as many cats in six years time. The special promotion spays or neuters each pet, vaccinates it for rabies, identifies it with a microchip and gets it a county license for the price of $5. The offer opened at the beginning of the month, but organizers soon were overwhelmed with requests and closed it. The first four days, we had to stop taking dogs, said Mary Lee Johnson of SnippetCitrus. All the surgery dates were filled through March. We just cut off the cats last week. We ran out of money and we ran out of surgery dates. SnippetCitrus raises funds to subsidize the cost of spaying and neutering pets of lowincome residents. The $5 special promotion was half the cost offered when the charity started last year. The regular SnippetCitrus program runs all year and assists pet owners who need financial assistance to spay and neuter their pets, Johnson said. We ask that you dont call us until the end of March to see if we have additional surgery dates available: 352503-3237. Humanitarians handled surgeries at its premises in Crystal River. Animal Services donated vaccines, microchips and county licenses. Volunteers took care of phone calls, appointment setting, pet handling, paperwork and many services. One happy pet owner was April Trimble of Homosassa, who has wanted to get her dog Libby spayed but has been unable because her family lives on a fixed income. Shes almost 5 years old, and I call her my four-legged antidepressant, Trimble said about her pet. Trimble said her husband has a medical condition and she also has to take care of her mother. Im not able to work outside the home, Trimble said. The budget is really, really supertight between gas and groceries and all the bills. Each month, were down to the very last penny. Trimble said she learned about the program from aChroniclearticle. She had wanted to get her pet spayed because the dog had been through two difficult pregnancies. Only three pups survived. I dont want her to have any more puppies at all, Trimble said. I am very grateful for Snippets because they are a godsend. Donations can be addressed to SnippetCitrus and mailed to SnippetCitrus,P.O.

An Inglis man faces felony assault charges after pulling out a CO 2 -powered BB-gun pistol out and threatening a woman. Lewis Valdez, 71, of West River Road was arrested Feb. 16 and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. According to his arrest affidavit, both Valdez and the victim were staying at the Big Oaks Campground. The dispute reportedly began when the victim went to move a white plastic bench, located near Valdezs campsite, over to the campfire. She stated that the bench had been located near the campfire for the past several weeks and was communal property. However, Valdez had a different opinion and advised her not to move the bench. Valdez claimed the victim often took things that did not belong to her and moved them to different areas of the campground. When the victim disregarded the request to leave the bench where it was, Valdez allegedly went into his camper and came out with the BB gun and pointed it at the victims head. A witness to the incident said she saw Valdez exit his travel trailer with a gun, and when she saw him pointing the gun at the victims head, she shouted a warning. Once alerted to the situation, the victim quickly ran away, reportedly in fear for her life. Although the gun was a CO 2 -powered BB gun, the deputys report states it had the approximate shape and size of an actual Beretta semiautomatic pistol and had no visible orange markings to indicate that it was not a real gun. Valdezs bond was set at $5,000. Nevada man facing child sex chargesA Las Vegas, Nev., man was returned Saturday to Citrus County from the Cook County Jail in Illinois to face child sex charges. Edwin Diaz, 62, is facing felony charges of knowingly using a child in a sexual performance and lewd and lascivious molestation of a person younger than 16 years old. According to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office report, the alleged victim is currently a 15-year-old female who lives out of state. The girl reportedly visited Citrus County in 2011-12. The teen alleges Diaz fondled her during the visit. The girl stated she was watching television when the suspect pulled her onto his lap and started inappropriately touching her. Moments later when the girl went into the bathroom, Diaz reportedly followed her and ordered her to drop her pants. Diaz reportedly stared at her then walked away. According to the report, no other incidents occurred. The two have had no contact since that time. County to get $1.5M for road workThe Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is awarding Citrus County $1.5 million to improve safety conditions on nine roadways at no cost to the county. According to a press release from county government, these funds are being made available by the Federal Highway Administration to provide low cost safety improvements at curve locations along Lecanto Highway, Pleasant Grove Road, Citrus Avenue, Withlacoochee Trail, Old Floral City Road, Fort Island Trail, Homosassa Trail, Ozello Trail and Gobbler Drive (C.R. 39A). There were 141 curves identified along those roadway sections that had a high number of run-off-the-road crashes. These crashes constituted 8 percent of total crashes and 22 percent of all fatalities the occurred on Citrus Countymaintained roadways. The improvements involve the installation of various forms of traffic control devices such as curve warning signs with supplemental solar-powered speed feedback signs, chevron signs and retroreflective pavement markers along the curve edge lines. The county has given permission for FDOT to issue the contract to allow their contractor to work on county roads to implement these modifications. FDOT is currently in the planning process for design, which will be available for County staff to review before construction begins. There are no time restrictions for the funds to be used and the target date to begin improvements is in the summer of 2014.Republican club to host candidateThe Citrus Ridge Republican Club will meet at 7p.m. Thursday, Feb.20, at the Beverly Hills Community Center, 1 Civic Circle, Beverly Hills.

impact has lingered. Aging boomers are more likely to be in debt as they enter retirement than were previous generations, with many having purchased more expensive homes with smaller down payments, said economist Olivia Mitchell of University of Pennsylvanias Wharton School. One in five has unpaid medical bills and 17 percent are underwater with their home values. Fourteen percent are uninsured. As of December, 46 percent of older jobseekers were among the long-term unemployed compared with less than 25 percent before the recession. And those financial setbacks happened just as their health care needs became more acute. Americans in their mid-50s to mid-60s are more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes than other age groups, younger or older, accounting for 3 in 10 of the adult diabetes diagnoses in the United States each year. And every year after age 50, the rate of cancer diagnosis climbs. The affordable coverage is an answer to a prayer really, said Laura Ingle, a 57-year-old Houston attorney who had been denied coverage repeatedly because she has sarcoidosis, an autoimmune disease. She recently had back surgery for a painful condition thats been bothering her for months. One night in September, 64-year-old Glenn Nishimura woke up with wrenching pain that sent him to the emergency room. It was his gallbladder. A doctor recommended surgery. Instead, Nishimura went home. A consultant to nonprofit groups, he was self-employed and uninsured. I checked myself out because I had no idea what this was going to cost, the Little Rock, Ark., man said. They didnt want me to go, but they didnt stop me. Nishimura lost his coverage after leaving a fulltime position with benefits in 2007, thinking he could land another good job. The recession ruined that plan. After COBRA coverage expired, he was denied coverage because of high blood pressure and other conditions. He made it until September without a major illness. A second night of gallbladder pain and a chat with a doctor persuaded him to have the surgery. After getting the bills, he negotiated the fees down to $12,000, which he considered a big hit, but it could have been worse. The average cost of a gallbladder removal in Arkansas was listed at three times that. Nishimura dipped into his savings to cover the bill. In December, he chose a bronze plan on the new insurance marketplace that costs him $285 a month after a tax credit. The deductible is $6,300, so he hopes he doesnt have to use his coverage. He can get on Medicare in April, just in time for his annual checkup. Now theres the peace of mind of knowing the limits of my obligation if I have catastrophic health needs, he said. Dr. Bernd Wollschlaeger said hes noticed a recent increase in patients in this age group at his family practice in Miami. Lots of them have untreated chronic conditions that have progressed to an advanced stage. Many have delayed necessary treatments due to costs and expect a total and quick workup on their first visit, he said, adding they want referrals to specialists and tests including colonoscopies and mammograms. Signing up younger, healthier enrollees is seen as more difficult, but crucial to keeping future insurance rates from increasing. The administration said those age groups may put off enrolling until closer to the March 31 deadline. Some of the aging boomers were determined to get coverage in the marketplace, despite repeated problems and frustration with the federal website. The hours spent online and over the phone paid off for real estate agent Greg Burke and his beautician wife, Pat. The empty-nesters qualified for a tax credit that will lower their monthly health insurance premiums by nearly half. The Burkes, from Akron, Ohio, are among the 38 percent of marketplace enrollees in the state between 55 and 64 years old. Hes 61 and had a knee replaced six years ago. They will now spend $250 a month for health insurance, a huge savings, Greg Burke said. or five surgeries there a week. Beaty is thrilled to have Dr. Kaushal affiliated with Citrus Memorial. This is the kind of service where patients no longer have to go to another county, which is great in itself, Beaty said. Dr. Kaushal said he hasnt yet reached out to Hospital Corporation of America which has a tentative agreement on a 50-year lease of the hospital to discuss the retina program, but he will soon. Beaty said he thinks Dr. Kaushal will get HCAs attention. HCA is going to be very interested in this guys surgeries, he said. Dr. Kaushal is also looking forward to opening his Citrus County office in the coming week or so, and said he already has a waiting list of 30 to 40 patients. And he isnt stopping there. Dr. Kaushal is hoping to launch a research institute at Citrus Memorial, noting that Citrus County has one of the highest rates of diabetes cases in the state. He is hoping to raise money for the institute, plus gain interest from business leaders for a biotech incubator to encourage further research and development. That means jobs, and thats what matters at the end of the day, he said. He hasnt started fundraising yet, but will soon. While no timeline is set, Dr. Kaushal said he would hope to have a retina institute at Citrus Memorial operating within four years. I have learned that if youre sincere and passionate with people they will support you, he said. Just keep chipping away.

Moulton reportedly rode with the deputy to the mail box area and found a pink-and-black bookbag containing items used in manufacturing meth. The sheriffs offices Tactical Impact Unit was called to the scene and so was Hazmat. In the bag, investigators found a one-pot methamphetamine cook; a green Coleman propane tank; several coffee filters; a spark plug; two Ziploc plastic baggies and a utility knife. According to the report, Moulton told investigators Cordell and she were riding in the neighborhood and saw law enforcement in the area and thought they were going to get in trouble, so they decided to go hide the bag behind the bank of mail boxes. She also reportedly admitted to authorities that she has been using meth for a long time, dating back to when the couple lived in Alabama. Cordell also admitted to investigators that he did cook meth and led them to a burn pile were more ingredients for manufacturing meth were found. He also took investigators on a tour of the residence in which he said lab material would be stored. Cordell reportedly told investigators they would cook meth in the presence of a 14-year-old child.

OPINION Page A8TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2014 Contact your congressmenWith the Senate having acted on a revised flood insurance plan, I would strongly urge all citizens to voice your opinion to our representatives. The following is the email I have forwarded to Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson and Rep. Rich Nugent. If it will help, please feel free to use my email as a guide in sending your own message to Washington. This issue is important to all citizens of Citrus County not just those living on or near the water. First I would like to thank the senate for their recent expediting of corrective measures regarding the Biggert/ Waters Reform Act. This act, as passed in 2011, would have proved devastating to thousands of middle class families. Not all families living near the water are wealthy. Most, like myself, live on a small canal in a modest home and we dont own second homes. The Biggert/Waters Reform Act, as passed, would force me to sell my home at a tremendous loss. Current federal government policies have already brought down the American middle class wealth to unacceptable levels, and you, our federal government officials, wonder why the middle class is not spending to support our GDP Your policies like the Biggert/Waters Reform Act are killing the already decaying middle class wealth. We middle class citizens, unlike the federal government that spends someone elses money, know we cannot spend beyond our ability to pay. I urge the all house members to follow through and pass the Senates corrective measures of to the Biggert/Waters Reform Act without change and without delay. At 73 years of age, I have been a registered and active voter for many years. I will not give my vote to any congressional representative, regardless of party, who does not support the proposed Senate version addressing changes to the 2011 Biggert/Waters Reform Act. Thank you for your attention. Robert Locher, constituent Crystal River Your tax dollars hard at work: The state of Florida has joined a lawsuit aimed at blocking a massive cleanup plan for Chesapeake Bay. The Chesapeake Bay. And, no, you cant make this stuff up. Recently, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi filed a brief paid for with your taxes attacking the legality of the Chesapeake Bay Clean Water Blueprint. The plan was devised by six bay-area states, the District of Columbia and the federal government. Its mission is to improve water quality in the rivers, streams and estuaries of the Chesapeake region. A federal judge upheld the terms of the so-called blueprint, which will limit the amount of pollution being dumped, but the ruling is being appealed. Why would the state of Florida try to obstruct the cleanup of public waters hundreds of miles away from our own? Because Bondi and Gov. Rick Scott are complete tools. They arent suing on behalf of the citizens of Florida; theyre suing on behalf of big agricultural and development interests that dont want the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency enforcing clean-water laws anywhere. Among the lobby groups trying to dismantle the Chesapeake Bay Clean Water Blueprint are the American Farm Bureau Federation, the National Home Builders and those famously civic-minded folks at the Fertilizer Institute. They want us to trust them to regulate their own pollution, and to hell with the EPA. Quietly, these industries recruited Florida and 20 other states most led by Republican governors, of course to join the lawsuit attacking the Chesapeake Bay plan. Among the other shameless meddlers are Kansas, Alaska and Indiana. To say we are outraged is a vast understatement, said Will Baker, president of the nonprofit Chesapeake Bay Foundation. We find it almost beyond belief for any state outside of the Chesapeake Bay watershed to try to sue to stop us from cleaning up our waters. What are they afraid of if we have clean water in the Chesapeake Bay? Here in Florida, Bondi and Scott didnt hold a press conference to announce they were joining the Chesapeake litigation. In fact, theyd be much happier if nobody knew about it except the special interests for whom theyre pimping. Imagine the widespread anger down here if the state of Maryland or Pennsylvania sued to halt Everglades restoration. Thats how people up there feel about what were doing to them. Theres a perverse irony in the fact that the Scott administration is spending public dollars to defend polluters up north while our own most precious waterways are being poisoned. Fertilizer runoff from lawns and other pollution has killed thousands of acres of sea grass in the Indian River Lagoon, and its the prime suspect in a steep rise in deaths of manatees and bottle-nosed dolphins. The rapid decline in water quality poses a serious threat to the marine-based economy of the Treasure Coast, affecting everything from boat sales to riverfront real estate. Residents have protested, organized and begged for help from Scott and the Legislature. Meanwhile, whenever it gets rainy, the Army Corps of Engineers continues to pump fertilizer-laden water from Lake Okeechobee eastward down the St. Lucie River toward the Atlantic Ocean, and westward down the Caloosahatchee to the Gulf of Mexico. The people living around Stuart dread the dense algae blooms that suffocate the oysters and drive away sea life whenever that scummy greenblack torrent from Lake O arrives. Its a catastrophic violation of the federal Clean Water Act, committed by a federal agency on a seasonal basis. Instead of suing the Corps to halt the dumping, Scott and Bondi are wasting Floridas legal budget fighting faraway projects like the Chesapeake Bay Clean Water Blueprint, which is actually a model of sensible cooperation between the states and the feds. Scott and Bondi dont care. Both are up for re-election this year, and are banking on hefty donations from developers and Big Agriculture. Thats the only reason they stuck their noses into this lawsuit. A vote for either one of them is basically a vote for the Fertilizer Institute. Remember that in November. In the meantime, speaking for all other Floridians, Id like to apologize to the concerned citizens of Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware and Washington, D.C. We had nothing to do with this ridiculous lawsuit. We know firsthand the terrible impact of water pollution, and we truly want your Chesapeake Bay to be clean. Pay no attention to our clueless governor and attorney general. We try not to.Carl Hiaasen is a columnist for the Miami Herald. Readers may write to him at: 1 Herald Plaza, Miami, FL, 33132.

At its Feb. 11 meeting, the Board of County Commissioners voted to hear, at its Feb. 25 meeting, an amendment to its Public Participation Ordinance which would give citizens a greater voice at commission meetings this after squelching that voice last September with the ordinances adoption. Despite its name, the ordinance severely limits public participation in board meetings, adhering to a bare-minimum standard only recently prescribed by state law. Citizens are allowed to speak briefly at the beginning of board meetings and, with rare exception, no more. Prior to the ordinances adoption, the board had an uncodified but amiable policy on comment that allowed citizens to speak their minds essentially at will. Citizen backlash to the rule change was swift, forceful and, it seemed, ineffectual. Meeting attendees who used their now-singular speaking opportunity to rebuke the board for its aboutface were met with non-responses that only engendered further hostility and understandably: Their government was unwilling to hear them and unwilling to tell them why. The problem was decorum, and should the board vote to expand citizens rights next Tuesday, it will also be voting on how to limit them. Accompanying the modification of the Public Participation Ordinance is a hearing on the Civility and Decorum Code for Public Meetings, which prohibits, among other behaviors: whistling, heckling, personal attacks, abusive language, repeated interruption and, much to the chagrin of one commissioner, zingers. The new rules would apply to county staff, as well as members of the public, and a violation is punishable by ejection from the meeting. The board is to be commended for its considered, if slow, response to public rancor. The proposed rules are a decent, well-intentioned reaction to meetings that were getting out of hand on both sides of the lectern, and we exhort citizens and commissioners alike to respect the rules, even if they cant respect each other. The publics business is better conducted with dialogue between citizen and representative, but there can be no dialogue without civility and, for citizens, no satisfaction without dialogue.

So that is taxpayers money. Buy me some food.Theyre all good peopleI cannot believe this person that called in to Sound Off about the homeless. The homeless. Let that person go walk in their shoes before they talk about them. They have backpacks and smoke cigarettes, and phones.

Vote no on fast trackThis years election season will undoubtedly bring a bonanza to media coffers, as corporate donations will be at an alltime high. My advice is to turn off your television and make a simple litmus test for this years electoral decisions: Did your national representatives actually help with job creation, fend off income inequality, and protect you from NSA spying and SOPA? Or did they simply give lip service by claiming to support these campaigns, while simultaneously supporting fast track for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)? You have probably heard of the TPP by now, with its secretive text that even our representatives have not been allowed to read or make public. The TPP has been negotiated in secret, with 600 or so transnational corporate advisers having full access to the text during the past five years. As a trade pact, the TPP will, if passed, nullify U.S. laws, through investor-state dispute resolution, with a corporate tribunal system that would supersede national sovereignty should laws that protect citizens or the environment be perceived as barriers to any of those corporations expected future profits. Since the TPP negotiations have been conducted in secret over the past five years, everything we know about the document thus far has come from leaked texts. Two full chapters were leaked to Wikileaks: the intellectual properties chapter, leaked in November, and recently, the environmental chapter on Jan. 9. Since 2012, other portions of the negotiating text were leaked to Public Citizen. After these documents were leaked, experts studied them and came back with this description: The TPP is much worse than the jobkiller NAFTA. The TPP will, if passed, finish the job that NAFTA and other so-called free trade agreements started by turning us unto a Third World country. TPP will offshore millions more jobs, and lower wages even further, as remaining manufacturers and service sectors ship remaining good jobs to countries like Vietnam, with its 28-cent hourly wage, further adding to the budget deficit and greatly increasing our already enormous trade deficit. It sounds hard to believe that our representatives could conceivably sign this terrible agreement, effectively ending U.S. sovereignty, further jeopardizing our health and safety and that of the planet. The mechanism that could make it inevitable is a device called fast track. Fast track was a deal struck in 1974 between Congress, who has the Constitutional power to authorize trade laws, and Nixon, who wanted to proclaim trade authority as his own, which would have been unconstitutional. Fast track was the compromise. Fast track must be given to the president by Congressional vote, but if fast track is given, it will stipulate any bill under consideration must have only 20 hours of debate, no amendments, just an up or down vote, a simple majority, and worst of all, the president and trade representative sign the laws before Congress even votes on them. We the people are not allowed to see the text of the TPP for four years after it passes or fails, yet the president and trade representatives are lobbying our representatives to vote yes on fast track. Former trade representative Ron Kirk said in 2012, We must get fast track to pass the TPP because if the people see whats in this deal, it will never pass. Call Representative Nugent and make sure he knows it is an election year, and good jobs, affordable medications and U.S. sovereignty are too important to fast track away. As yet he has made no formal commitment. Tell him to uphold democracy and vote no on fast track. Harriet Heywood HomosassaQualifying still months awayRenee McPheeters, a county commission candidate for 2014, states in a letter published Monday, Jan. 27, that she is the first and so far the only qualified candidate by the Citrus County Supervisor of Elections.

Qualification, which is a formal part of the election process, does not occur until June 16 through June 20. These dates start at noon 71 days before the election and close at noon 67 days before the election. As of today, no candidate has qualified and cannot legally do so until the dates given.

US Navy ready to deploy laserBATH, Maine The Navy plans to deploy its first laser aboard the USS Ponce later this year, and it intends to test an electromagnetic rail gun prototype aboard a vessel within two years. Rail guns, which have been tested on land in Virginia, fire a projectile at six or seven times the speed of sound enough velocity to cause severe damage. The Navy sees them as replacing or supplementing oldschool guns, firing lethal projectiles from long distances.Penn State names new chiefSTATE COLLEGE, Pa. Eric Barron, a former professor and dean at Penn State University and president of Florida State University, was chosen Monday to lead Pennsylvanias largest university as it continues grappling with fallout from the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Hell bring with him the experience of managing a major state university known as much for its storied athletic program as its academic mission, as well as the fallout from a sex-abuse scandal with ties to big-time college football. Penn State trustees unanimously approved the selection at a special meeting in State College after a 15-month search process in which university officials had kept the new presidents identity secret, refusing to confirm whether Barron was even being considered until the meeting began. Barron is getting a fiveyear contract worth $1 million a year and will start in May, if not sooner.Study: Arctic getting darkerWASHINGTON The Arctic isnt nearly as bright and white as it used to be because of more ice melting in the ocean, and thats turning out to be a global problem, a new study says. With more dark, open water in the summer, less of the suns heat is reflected back into space. So the entire Earth is absorbing more heat than expected, according to a study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. That extra absorbed energy is so big that it measures about one-quarter of the entire heat-trapping effect of carbon dioxide, said the studys lead author, Ian Eisenman, a climate scientist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in California. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A10TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Protest Associated PressWomen protest against the ban of lace underwear Sunday in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Trade ban hits below the beltMOSCOW A trade ban on lacy lingerie has Russian consumers and their neighbors with their knickers in a twist. The ban will outlaw any underwear containing less than 6 percent cotton from being imported, made or sold in Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan. And it has struck a chord in societies where La Perla and Victorias Secret are panty paradises compared to Soviet-era cotton underwear, which was often about as flattering and shapely as drapery. On Sunday, 30 women protesters in Kazakhstan were arrested and thrown into police vans while wearing lace underwear on their heads and shouting Freedom to panties! According to the Russian Textile Businesses Union, more than $4 billion worth of underwear is sold in Russia annually, and80 percent of the goods sold are foreign made. Analysts have estimated that 90percent of products would disappear from shelves, if the ban goes into effect this summer as planned.S. Korea resort roof collapsesSEOUL, South Korea A resort auditoriums roof loaded down with snow and rain collapsed late Monday during a welcoming ceremony for South Korean university freshmen, killing 10 and injuring more than 100, officials said Tuesday. Emergency staff worked through the night to pull people from beneath twisted metal and other debris and rush the injured on stretchers to waiting ambulances. Snow, sleet and icy roads hampered rescue operations. About 560 students from Busan University of Foreign Studies had gathered for a two-day freshman orientation at the Manua Ocean Resort in the southeastern city of Gyeongju. Recent heavy snow combined with rain likely put too much pressure on the structure.Netanyahu snipes at boycotters JERUSALEM Israels prime minister said those who boycott the Jewish state are anti-Semites. Benjamin Netanyahu told a group of visiting JewishAmerican leaders Monday that it is time for Israel to fight back and delegitimize the delegitimizers. There are increasing concerns in Israel about a Palestinian-led movement of boycott, divestment and sanctions known by its acronym, BDS. The boycott has been growing recently, mainly in Europe, where some businesses and pension funds have cut investments or trade with Israeli firms they say are connected to West Bank settlements. I think that it is important that the boycotters be exposed for what they are, they are classical antiSemites in modern garb, Netanyahu said. World BRIEFS From wire reports Hijacker seeks asylum Associated PressGENEVA It seemed like a routine overnight flight until the Ethiopian Airlines jetliner went into a dive and oxygen masks dropped from the ceiling. Only then did the terrified passengers bound for Italy from Addis Ababa realize something was terribly wrong. The co-pilot had locked his captain from the cockpit, commandeered the plane, and headed for Geneva, where he used a rope to lower himself out of a window, then asked for political asylum. Authorities say a prison cell is more likely. One passenger said the hijacker threatened to crash the plane if the pilot didnt stop pounding on the locked door. Another said he was terrified for hours Monday as the plane careened across the sky. The jetliner carrying 200 passengers and crew took off from the Ethiopian capital on a flight to Milan and then Rome, but sent a distress message over Sudan that it had been hijacked, an Ethiopian official said. Once the plane was over Europe, two Italian fighter jets and later French jets were scrambled to accompany it. Italian Air Force Col. Girolamo Iadiciccio said the order to scramble came from NATO to ensure the plane didnt harm national security and didnt stray off-route. The plane landed in Geneva at about 6 a.m. Officials said no one on the flight was injured and the hijacker was taken into custody after surrendering to Swiss police. It wasnt immediately clear why he chose Switzerland, where Swiss voters recently demanded curbs on immigration. However, Italy has a reputation among many Africans as not being hospitable to asylum seekers. Ethiopian Airlines is owned by Ethiopias government, which has faced persistent criticism about its rights record and its alleged intolerance of political dissent. The co-pilot was identified as Hailemedhin Abera, a 31-year-old Ethiopian man who had worked for Ethiopian Airlines for five years and had no criminal record, said Ethiopias communications minister, Redwan Hussein, adding that Ethiopia will seek his extradition. Geneva police said he claimed he felt threatened at home.

McMeekin, 35, has spent 14 years working at Rehabilitation Opportunities Inc., a nonprofit sheltered workshop where he and other disabled workers are bused each workday to stuff envelopes, collate files or shrink-wrap products all for far less than the state minimum wage of $8.25 an hour. Intellectually disabled struggling to find work in US Associated PressWASHINGTON Most Americans with intellectual or developmental disabilities remain shut out of the workforce, despite changing attitudes and billions spent on government programs to help them. Even when they find work, its often part time, in a dead-end job or for pay well below the minimum wage. Employment is seen as crucial for improving the quality of life for people with these disabilities and considered a benchmark for measuring the success of special education programs. Yet the jobs picture is as bleak now it was more than a decade ago. Only 44 percent of intellectually disabled adults are currently in the labor force, either employed or looking for work, while just 34percent are actually working, according to a survey by Special Olympics and conducted by Gallup and the University of Massachusetts at Boston. That compares with 83percent of nondisabled, working-age adults who are in the workforce. The needle has not changed in more than four decades, said Gary Siperstein, professor at the University of Massachusetts and one of the authors of the study. We just cant move the barometer. And weve invested a lot of resources with lots of good programs around the country. Intellectual disability can include conditions such as autism or Down syndrome. But the vast majority of cases are those with limited intellectual capacity generally an IQ of about 75 or less and limitations in handling basic life skills, such as counting money or taking public transportation. About 28 percent of workingage adults with intellectual disabilities have never held a job. Even those who do manage to find jobs often end up working only part time and get lower pay than workers without disabilities, the study found. On the positive side, 62 percent of disabled people who work in a competitive setting have been there three years or more, showing they can work and stay with it. A lot of the problem has to do with low expectations, said Lynnae Ruttledge, a member of the National Council on Disability, an independent federal agency that advises the government on disability policy. Schoolteachers dont have high expectations, and parents tend to be very protective of their children. But attitudes are changing, she said. There are now more programs to help disabled children to gain work experience while still in school, making it easier to find a job. Many intellectually disabled people work in fast food, and retail chains such as Walgreens, Best Buy and Safeway that have stepped up to hire them. Another hurdle is that about 30 percent of intellectually disabled people who work do so in sheltered workshops, where they perform basic tasks but are segregated from nondisabled workers. They can legally be paid less than the minimum wage under a 1938 federal law that allows wages to be based on comparing their productivity level with that of a nondisabled worker. Disability rights advocates call these workshops an outdated relic and say its discriminatory to pay them less than other workers. Critics say they dont do enough to build skills or help transition intellectually disabled workers into a mainstream work setting. Defenders argue that thousands of severely disabled people would be left sitting at home without the carefully structured environments. Of the 420,000 disabled people who work at sheltered workshops, only 5percent ever leave for other jobs alongside nondisabled workers. Disability rights groups won a victory on Wednesday when President Barack Obama signed an executive order raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour for federal contract workers. The order includes several thousand disabled workers at sheltered workshops run by federal contractors. Matthew McMeekin, 35, of Bethesda, Md., has spent 14 years working at Rehabilitation Opportunities Inc., a nonprofit sheltered workshop where he and other disabled workers are bused each workday to stuff envelopes, collate files or shrink-wrap products all for far less than the state minimum wage of $8.25 an hour. Hes not working there for the money, says his mother, Bebe McMeekin. He has a job to go to every day for eight hours a day, five days a week. On Fridays, he brings home a paycheck. He has a work environment with his friends that hes gotten to know there. Asked whether he would ever consider working anywhere else, McMeekin says an emphatic No! and rattles off the names of all his work friends. His mother says it would be hard for him to get another job considering his limitations and vision problems. Eric Barronnew president of Penn State.
Desmond Franklin of Citrus scores during district play earlier this month. The Hurricanes look to move one step closer to the Final Four when they travel to Gainesville Eastside tonight.MATT PFIFFNER /Chronicle Citrus travels to Gainesville Eastside tonight for Class 5A regional semifinal clashSEANARNOLD CorrespondentWith one more state playoff win, the Citrus boys basketball team will advance further than any Hurricane boys team since 1961, and match its most wins (27) since 2003. Standing in the way of that feat is a 22-6 Gainesville Eastside squad that plays host to CHS tonight in the Region 2-5A semifinals. Citrus (26-2) won its 17th straight game with a 64-55 regional quarterfinal victory at home over Ocala Lake Weir last Friday. The Canes struggled out of the gate in falling behind 6-0 midway through the opening quarter, before eight points from senior Ben Janicki helped lift them to a 15-14 advantage by the end of the quarter. The Marion County squad hung around in what was a back-and-forth, turnover-laden contest, as the teams drew even on 12 different occasions. LWHS got its lead back five more times in the game, the last time with 6:15 to play, when it went ahead 49-47. Most notably, CHS got the win despite going 0 for 8 from beyond the 3-point arc for the night, and 11 for 24 at the foul line prior to the final 35 seconds, when it sank 5 of 6. By now, the Canes are used to having to grind out the postseason wins. They took the District 5A-6 title their second consecutive district championship by a combined margin of eight points against Lecanto and Dunnellon. In its quarterfinal bout with Dunnellon, Eastside built up a 20-point advantage before 6-foot-1 junior Darius Norman made 8 of 11 free throws in the final 11 minutes in helping his Rams survive a third-quarter Tiger rally and prevail 69-57. (Tonight) looks like one of those games that could be decided in the last four minutes, said CHS head coach Tom Densmore, who led the Canes to the regional semifinals in 2005. If that holds true, I feel pretty good about that weve had three of those in a row now. Ive told the guys since the district tournament that this is an opportunity that a lot of kids who play four years of high school ball never get. We just have to take advantage of the opportunity. Senior Devin Pryor continues to lead the Canes on the court with his basketball savvy and efforts in scoring and defense. He notched a double-double over Lake Weir in points and rebounds, and added six steals, including three in the third quarter. Pryor, Janicki and Desmond and Sam Franklin have all provided indispensable production in the postseason. Janicki has twice paced all shooters in a game this postseason, having scored 51 points over the past three contests. Over the same span, Desmond Franklin is registering 15 points and 3.3 steals a night, while his cousin Sam is adding 10.3 Olympics/ B2 Scoreboard/B3 Sports briefs/ B3 Lottery, TV/B3 Baseball/ B4 Basketball/B4 American pair earns Olympic gold medal in ice dance. / B2 SPORTSSection BTUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Florida jumps to No. 2 in AP basketball poll Gators grab one first-place vote from undefeated Syracuse Orange Associated PressSyracuse is still No. 1 in the AP college basketball poll, but it is no longer a unanimous choice.

It was a rare show of emotion from the usually stoic team owner. Then again, this moment was far from normal. Austin Dillon took the iconic No. 3 the number the late Dale Earnhardt drove to 67 wins and six of his seven championships out of pseudoretirement and put it back atop the scoring tower at Daytona International Speedway.

The Baltimore Ravens intend to talk to Ray Rice before deciding how to deal with the running backs arrest in a New Jersey casino. Atlantic City police said Rice was arrested early Saturday morning after an argument with his fiancee turned physical. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Monday that hes waiting to get all the details before deciding what action to take, if any. I have not had a chance to talk to Ray, Newsome said. I really dont know that situation. With me, I get all the answers. Then thats when we make decisions within this organization once we get all the information we can get. Atlantic City police said Rice and Janay Palmer were both arrested on simple assault charges and were released on a summons after an incident at the Revel Casino. Michael Diamondstein, an attorney for Rice, said that hes hopeful that after an investigation the matter turns out to be little more than a misunderstanding. Newsome and Ravens coach John Harbaugh met briefly Monday morning while linebacker Terrell Suggs signed a four-year contract extension. Neither John or I at this point have spoken with Ray, Newsome said. Im sure within the next 24 hours one of us will. Asked if Rices status with the team could be jeopardy, Newsome responded, When I left my office 20 minutes ago, and John had probably been there 15 minutes before then, Ray Rice was still a big part of what we plan to do in 2014. Rice played at Rutgers University in New Jersey before being drafted by the Ravens in the 2008 draft. He ran for more than 1,000 yards in four straight seasons from 2009-12 before gaining only 660 yards on the ground in 2013. Rice is the Ravens career leader in total yards from scrimmage (9,214) and ranks second behind Jamal Lewis in yards rushing.

Associated PressSOCHI, Russia It was Belarus day Monday at the Sochi Olympics. A Belarussian woman made Olympic history by becoming the first female ever to win three biathlon titles at the same games, and one of her teammates captured the mens freestyle skiing aerials competition to complete a goldmedal sweep on the event. Anton Kushnir nailed a near-perfect landing after a back double full-fulldouble full jump five twists packed into three head-over-heels flips while soaring 50 feet off the ramp and into the night sky. It was the best jump Ive ever witnessed in person, said 18-year-old American Mac Bohonnon, who finished fifth. Darya Domracheva won her third biathlon title when she left a field of elite racers far behind to capture gold in the 12.5-kilometer mass start. As she neared the finish line, she waved her right pole above her head in celebration. Maybe its strange, but I dont feel like Ive done something special, Domracheva said. I just tried to enjoy myself and I did my race with a laugh. But for sure, its amazing. The race was in doubt earlier as dense fog forced postponement of the mens mass start race and the mens snowboardcross competition. It lifted just in time for the womens race and Domrachevas historymaking performance. Indoors, American pair Meryl Davis and Charlie White won the gold in figure skatings ice dance, finishing just ahead of longtime training partners and rivals Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada. It was the first Olympic title in the event for the United states. On Day 11 at the Sochi Olympics, Russia won the two-man bobsled for its fifth gold medal of the games; the U.S. and Canada advanced to the championship game of the womens ice hockey tournament; and Germany won the mens team ski jumping gold, raising its games-leading total to eight.BiathlonDomracheva won the pursuit and individual biathlon races last week. She took the lead for the first time after four minutes and stayed ahead of the field after the first shooting. Gabriela Soukalova of the Czech Republic took silver and Tiril Eckhoff of Norway bronze.BobsledRussias winning twoman bobsled had Alexander Zubkov driving and Alexey Voevoda as the brakeman. The Swiss team of Beat Hefti and Alex Baumann took silver, and the U.S. bronze, with Steven Holcomb driving and Steven Langton as brakeman. It was the first twoman bobsled medal for the U.S. in more than a half century.Freestyle skiingAlexei Grishin won Belarus first ever gold medal in Vancouver four years ago also in the mens aerials. Afterwards, he got his picture on a stamp back home. On Monday, he failed to qualify in the aerials. Belarus now has five golds in Sochi. Australias David Morris finished 24 points behind Kushnir to win silver; Chinas Jia Zongyang took the bronze.Ski jumpingGermanys win in the team event ended Austrias winning streak. It had won gold in the last two Olympics and hasnt lost a team large hill event since the 2005 world championships. Germanys team included Andreas Wank, Marinus Kraus, Andres Wellinger and Severin Freund. Austria took silver and Japan won the bronze.Ice hockeyMegan Bozek and Brianna Decker each had a goal and two assists to help the United States beat Sweden 6-1. The U.S. has medaled in every Winter Games since womens hockey was added in 1998. Canada, the three-time defending gold medalist, beat Switzerland 3-1 to advance to the final for the fifth consecutive Olympics. The two North American powers have met for three of the previous four championships.CurlingChina beat Britain 6-5 to qualify for the Olympic semifinals in mens curling. The loss forced Britain into a tiebreaker against Norway today for the final spot in the playoffs. Canada and Sweden advanced on Sunday.

Davis, White of US win Olympic ice dance gold Associated PressSOCHI, Russia Through 17 years of grueling practices, of defeats and victories, Meryl Davis and Charlie White insist theyve never considered parting ways. A perfect pairing, they were nearly flawless at the Sochi Olympics, and on Monday they became the first Americans to win an ice dance gold medal. The closest we came to breaking up, I cant pinpoint one because there hasnt been one, Davis, 27, said. Certainly there have been struggles. It hasnt been easy to get where we are. ... Its a partnership which I couldnt have asked for more. Charlie and I are very different. We used those difference to balance it out. There has never been a moment of doubt. Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada, the 2010 champions, took silver, while bronze went to Russias Elena Ilinykh and Nikita Katsalapov. Davis and White won silver in Vancouver, but in the four years since they have overtaken the Canadians, their training partners in Detroit under Russian coach Marina Zoueva. The reigning world champs scored 116.63 points in the free dance to finish with 195.52, 4.53 ahead of Virtue and Moir. No athletes like it to sit in this position, Moir said. We came here to win the competition. But its easier when we see them and know how hard these guys work. When their program to Sheherazade ended with White on a knee, Davis rested her head on his back in exhausted elation. The two started skating together in 1997 in Michigan, and on the biggest day of their career, they performed just as they had visualized it. That in itself justified 17 years of hard work, White, 26, said. The music swelling over the final minute of the program, their feet were in nonstop motion, yet every step was intricately choreographed. Their lifts were a blur as White spun across the ice with Davis held aloft, their movements and expressions still fierce despite the draining demands of the performance. As they told the story of the Persian king and the woman who enchants him, White was regal in purple velvet, Davis beguiling in a lavender dress with jewels shimmering on her midriff. They now have one medal of each color after winning bronze in the new team event in Sochi, the first American figure skaters to own three. Virtue and Moir had become the first North American ice dance gold medalists at their home Olympics in Vancouver. Their free dance to Russian classical music told the story of their own partnership, which also stretches back to 1997. In a performance at times tender and at others triumphant, Moir kissed her hand at the start and again throughout the program. I think there is relief, Moir said. It has been a journey to get here since 2010, a lot of sleepless nights to get to the Olympic Games. If I could only have been that 22-yearold at Vancouver. The reason we stayed in is we wanted a different journey. Now, the pressures of this game are just melting away. Ilinykh and Katsalapov were just ninth at last years world championships but are now the latest Olympic ice dance medalists from Russia, finishing 7.51 points behind the Canadians. Shes only 19; hes 22. The home fans started cheering when the first few notes of Swan Lake played for their free dance, and they were roaring when it ended with Katsalapov collapsed on his knees and Ilinykh weeping. The program builds and builds and builds, Katsalapov said through a translator, and the audience gave us energy to keep building it more and more. Frances Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzat were fourth, 6.26 points out of bronze. The other U.S. teams, Madison Chock and Evan Bates and siblings Maia and Alex Shibutani, finished eighth and ninth. Russia has won 18 of 33 medals in ice dances Olympic history, but now North Americans own two straight golds. Virtue and Moir have said theyll likely retire. For Davis and White, talk of the future can wait until this historic victory starts feeling real. We wanted to fight for the best performance we could give and we did that. You dream of this for so long, work so hard, and they worked hard, too, White said, referring to Virtue and Moir. They always have been with us, pushing us, and we couldnt have done it without them.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE I think its special because Austin, our family, is in the car. Dillon will be the talk of the Daytona and of all of racing for the next six days after winning the pole for Sundays season-opening Daytona 500. The famed number already was in the spotlight as Childress decided to put it back on track in the Sprint Cup Series for the first time since his driver and friends fatal accident in the 2001 Daytona 500. Dillon made its return an emphatic one. The legend of Dale has lived on for a long time and is going to continue to live on forever, Dillon said before his polesitting run. Dale Earnhardt is not just famous because of the number. He is Dale Earnhardt. He was a hero in everybodys mind, including myself. ... Thats the coolest thing about everything thats going on. Fans still lamenting the loss of Earnhardt may have mixed emotions about seeing another driver in the No. 3. But those closest to the Intimidator welcomed its return. I think its great for Austin and Richard, grandson and grandfather being able to come together and doing something like that with a number thats been in their family for so many years, Dale Earnhardt Jr. said. It has a lot of history inside their family. ... Im happy for them. Once we get out on the racetrack ... you wont even think about the 3 on the side. That will sort of become normal. Im glad that its back. It was going to come back. ... Its a good situation that I can be comfortable with, and Im happy for that because it could have just as easily been a difficult situation that I wouldnt have been comfortable with. Childress kept the stylized version of the No. 3, but tweaked the color scheme. He switched it from a white number with red trimming to a red number with black trimming. That was enough to satisfy Dale Sr.s mother, Martha, who had been uneasy about seeing it back on the track. I know it was Richards number when he drove and this is his grandson, and I understand that, Martha Earnhardt said in an interview with Fox Sports 1. As long as they dont make it look like the No. 3. If they painted it a different color, I can sort of deal with it, but I dont want to see the black No. 3 there just like Dales. Others just knew it was time. And NASCAR certainly was onboard with it. Industry leaders have promoted the return of the No. 3 as one of the biggest story lines heading into the season. I think everybody had reservations at one point in time, former Earnhardt crew member Danny Chocolate Myers said. Then you think about it and grow into it and realize its just time. Myers drove from North Carolina to Daytona Beach on Sunday, listening to qualifying on the radio and going through the tear-filled euphoria of Dillons 196 mph run to the nervous wait afterward, making sure it held up. It did, and Myers arrived just in time to hug Dillon in Victory Lane. I had my moment, I wont lie to you, Myers said. Its a big deal for me, and the 3s part of it. But this is a kid I got to see grow up. Im a Dale Jr. fan, not because hes Dale Earnhardt Jr. and not because hes Dale Earnhardts son. But because hes a kid I got to see grow up. Its the same with Austin, and thats means a lot to it. To do this today, its a big, big deal. Engine builder Danny Lawrence explained why better than everyone else. Its no secret that when we lost Dale, we rode an adrenaline for a little while there, said Lawrence, who started with the company before the 1998 Daytona 500. When youve got a guy thats driving for you thats your friend and to me the best race car driver out there, its just about impossible to recover from that. But Dillons given the team a shot in the arm, especially some relatively lean years. The next step is getting the No. 3 back in Victory Lane. If that happens, look for Childress to really let loose in celebration. You know, the emotion will fly if the 3 rolls in there on Sunday, he said. I wont hold it back, I promise. points, two blocks and nine boards per game. Eastside has capable size to complement shooters like juniors Thomas Lundy, Marquez Ross and Norman. Its enjoyed impressive wins over Jacksonville Bishop Kenny, Miami Northwestern, Williston and rival Gainesville, and got over the hump against Lake Weir after a pair of regular-season losses to the Canes in securing the 5A-5 district championship in overtime. This is the programs 11th trip to the playoffs under coach Herman Williams, whos led the Rams to 14 playoff wins and a 5A state title (2006) since taking over in 1996. Theyre pretty big and physical from what I could see, Densmore said of Eastside. When I saw them play Lake Weir, they won the rebound battle at both ends. Youve got to have a decent shooting night to beat em. Just comparing each of our games with Lake Weir, he added, it would seem like were pretty evenly matched. The downside is being on the road, but weve beat some pretty good teams Nature Coast, Hernando, Lake Weir on the road. Tonights winner plays at home Saturday for the regional final (elite eight) against Tarpon Springs or Brooksville Nature Coast (21-7). Citrus beat the Sharks twice this season, but hasnt faced the Spongers (26-3). EHS is located at 1201 SE 43rd St., Gainesville. Admission to the game is $7.

Westbrook has missed 27 games since having surgery on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee the third procedure in nine months. The three-time NBA All-Star tore the lateral meniscus in his right knee during the second game of the playoffs last April. Westbrook underwent an operation after that injury and had another procedure on Oct. 1 to remove a loose stitch. Oklahoma City went 20-7 this season without him. Oklahoma City (43-12) entered the NBA All-Star break with the leagues best record.From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS
Pedroia feels fine 3 months after thumb surgery Associated PressFORT MYERS The Red Sox had a big lead in last years opener at Yankee Stadium. Still, Dustin Pedroia slid headfirst trying to beat out his grounder. Bad decision, especially with Boston ahead 8-2 in the ninth inning. The win-at-all-costs second baseman tore a ligament in his left thumb, then missed just two games the rest of the season. It was the most impressive thing I watched all year. The thumb was totally black, third-base and infield coach Brian Butterfield said Monday. He didnt want anybody to know about it. So its not surprising that Pedroia downplayed how much it bothered him. A little bit, but its fine now, he said. Its fixed up, man. Its good. Its good to go. Pedroia had surgery to repair his torn ulnar collateral ligament 14 days after the Red Sox won the World Series in Game 6 against St. Louis. He wore a cast for about a month. Then he worked on regaining his strength. And on Monday he took batting practice three days before the first official full-squad workout. His attitude, typically, is upbeat. The rehab was great, Pedroia said. I feel healthy and theres no setbacks, no restrictions or anything. The Red Sox won their second title in four years in 2007 and Pedroia was named AL rookie of the year. In 2008, he was the leagues MVP, but the Red Sox lost the AL championship series despite leading 1-0 in Game 7 through three innings against Tampa Bay. That was a huge letdown, Pedroia said. You dont want that feeling. He tried to keep that from happening last year when the Red Sox were in first place through the first 34 games. He was hitting .311 at that point and wasnt about to take time off because of his thumb with so much at stake. Pedroia did even better in the next 10 games. He went 18 for 40 to raise his average to .343. The first month and a half he hit with one hand and he played with one hand, Butterfield said, but he never even blinked. Hes so impressive in so many ways and he showed unbelievable toughness. His average never dropped below .291 for the season and he ended at .301 while leading the AL with 724 plate appearances. He tied for second in the AL in hits and was second in the league in fielding percentage among second basemen. The only games he took off were on June 16 and in the regular-season finale Sept. 29. The Red Sox lost both. Pedroias injury reduced his power and he hit just nine homers, the fewest since he had eight in his rookie season. But he compensated by taking shorter swings and hitting more to the opposite field. We had half of him, but he fought through it and he still was a highly productive player, Butterfield said. He just kept playing and kept grinding and didnt flinch once. He never complained and just tried to find every way he could to make his game the most comfortable because I know early on he was playing with a lot of pain. Not that Pedroia would admit it. You just figure it out, he said. You just try to get hits, man. Thats it. With the Red Sox not resigning shortstop Stephen Drew, Pedroia has a new double-play partner in rookie Xander Bogaerts. Pedroia knows hell find a way to make that work, too. We all take ground balls a lot, he said. Bogeys going to be fine. (Butterfield) will make sure that everybodys on the same page in the infield and our defense. We know what were doing. Healthy or not, Pedroia showed that he certainly does. And Butterfield still raves about that. I get chill bumps when I start talking about him, Butterfield said. He does anything that he can to try to win a game. Hes as tough as they come.

The win was North Carolinas biggest comeback of the year. Freshman Kennedy Meeks scored a careerhigh 23 points for North Carolina (18-7, 8-4 ACC), while Marcus Paige chipped in 20. James Michael McAdoo, who had scored double figures in 17 consecutive games, fouled out without a point. That was about as bizarre of a game Ive ever been involved with early, nothing we did was very good, Williams said. But our guys just sort of hung in there. Florida State (15-11, 6-8) switched up the starting lineup with its NCAA Tournament chances dwindling after losing 6 of 9. Ian Miller made his first start of the season and led the Seminoles with 22 points, including five 3-pointers. His hot shooting out of the gate helped give Florida State a 21-6 lead. Montay Brandon finished with 18 points and Aaron Thomas added 16. North Carolina started just 2 for 13 from the field, but closed the first half with a 27-15 run with Meeks taking over inside. Paige scored 16 of his 20 points in the second half as the Tar Heels continued to walk down the lead. Nate Britt hit a baseline jumper to give North Carolina its first lead of the game at 57-55 with 10:05 left to play. The Tar Heels led 70-69 when J.P. Tokoto came up with a loose ball and turned it into an easy twohand dunk. Meeks then put in a layup off a Paige dribble-drive and dish to go up 74-69. Florida State never recovered.
HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:Wildlife park plans walk/C5 Poor vision sets up many a punch line in the classic cartoon series Mr. Magoo. The eponymous character, an eccentric millionaire with extreme nearsightedness (and not an ounce of self-awareness), found himself in countless precarious situations, such as walking over manholes or driving his jalopy off a cliff, which because it was fiction led to adventure and a happy ending. In real life, many people, as they age, suffer from poor eyesight. But if they ignore or deny it, as did Mr. Magoo, there can be serious consequences. Seniors have the most accidents per mile driven, said Dr. John Rowda, an ophthalmologist at the West Coast Eye Institute in Lecanto. While visual impairment is not entirely to blame dementia and memory problems can affect driving too it certainly makes driving more dangerous, he said. As the brain ages, it takes in less information from the peripheral vision, he said, which explains why the elderly are prone to have accidents at intersections where multiple things happen simultaneously. Recovery time after seeing a bright light also increases with age. Driving courses for older drivers often warn them to look to the right side of their lane when cars approach at night, so as to not take lights directly into the center of their vision, he said. In rural areas without background street lighting, night driving becomes even more difficult for seniors. Tragedy does not always happen behind the wheel. Every eye doctor can tell you stories of patients who come in after enduring vision problems for months or years, Rowda. Sadly, they were too late and the vision loss is permanent. To prevent vision loss, Rowda shared common issues for aging eyes, how to identify the warning signs and what to do to keep your eyes in optimal shape. The Big Four Cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy make up the most common eye problems among the elderly, Rowda said. Cataracts describe the clouding of the lens inside the eye. The effect is that the person sees everything as though through a foggy window. Difficulty driving at night can indicate cataracts. Headlights have more haze, glare and haloes. Road signs are harder to read, Rowda said. In Katie Hendrick For the Chronicle See EYES/ Page C3 000GZGB
For the ChronicleEditors note: This is the third entry in a fourpart series for February about heart health awareness. Next week: Strokes are preventable, treatable and beatable.At the beginning of each year we think about New Years resolutions and if you smoke it is always a good choice to quit. It all starts with that first step of making the commitment to quit, and taking action. From there, learning to live your life free of the addiction can be a day by day process with ups and downs but the end result means a healthier life. Dont let smoking waste any more of your time, quit now and let this journey begin. Heres a great timeline reference of the benefits of quitting smoking, immediate and long term: At 20 minutes after quitting: Blood pressure and heart rate decreases; body temperature of hands and feet increases improving your circulation; After 12 hours: Carbon monoxide levels in your blood drops to normal (elevates with each cigarette); After 48 hours: Ability to smell and taste start improving; Between 2 weeks and 1 month: the worst of the physical symptoms of nicotine withdrawal begin to subside (this is where reprogramming the habit of smoking needs to begin); Between 1 to 9 months: Less coughing, sinus congestion, and shortness of breath improve (the cilia tiny hair like structures that move mucus out of the lungs regain normal function); After one year: The excess risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a current smoker; After 5 years: Risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, and bladder are cut in half; After 10 years: Risk of lung cancer drops to as little as one-half that of continuing smokers; After 15 years: The risk of Coronary heart disease is that of a non-smoker. Remember, quitting smoking can only benefit you but it can be difficult. Statistics show that only 7 percent of those who quit without support are still smoke free at the end of their first year so take advantage of all of the support programs out there to help. C2TUESDAY, FEBRUARY18, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Management of pain utilizing surgical procedures Today, we will conclude our series of discussion on pain management in cancer patients. As I have previously mentioned, the majority of patients pain can be managed by either the utilization of commercially available products or by compounding various medications to achieve pain control. Occasionally, however, conventional techniques fail and patients are left with persistent pain. In these selected patients, two additional approaches are available and should be evaluated in refractory pain. Anesthesiologists often assist us in the care of patients with persistent intractable pain which does not respond to other forms of therapy. Anesthesiologists can assist us in performing the placement of catheters which allow us to deliver high doses of opioid-type anesthetics directly to the site of the pain. They also often assist in the placement of catheters into the epidural space of the spinal column so that relatively low doses of narcotic analgesics can be administered to the nerve roots of the spinal cord and often relieve the painful symptoms without causing many of the systemic side effects such as constipation that can be seen when these drugs are taken orally. In most studies, more than 80 percent of patients who had epidural catheters for their treatment of pain experienced relief of their severe pain. Occasionally, localized anesthetic type medications are added to the narcotics in these epidural treatments to increase the ability to obtain pain control. Anesthesiologists can also perform invasive procedures to assist in the treatment of pain by performing nerve blocks. Peripheral nerve blocks are useful in the small percentage of patients who do not respond to other types of therapy. They are especially useful in patients who have upper abdominal pain that can be caused by pancreatic and stomach cancer and also in those patients who have arm pain secondary to tumors of the upper portions of the lungs or shoulder region. Nerve blocks basically utilize the injection of an anesthetic into a nerve site to block the transmission of pain through that nerve site. In patients with pancreatic cancer, blocking the nerve area has been shown to reduce pain and reduce the need for narcotic therapy in more than 70 percent of cases. Occasionally, neurosurgeons are called on to assist in the relief of pain as well. In rare instances, where no other form of therapy seems to control the pain, neurosurgeons can actually selectively destroy nerves which detect pain or portions of the spinal cord which sends pain from a specific area of the body. In the hands of an experienced neurosurgeon, this is effective roughly 80 percent of the time with a very small risk of any long term complication. Occasionally, a neurosurgeon will also assist us by utilizing neuro-stimulatory procedures. These consist of tiny electrical transmitters that provide a stimulation of the nerves that are receiving the signals of pain and helps to block the perception of pain. As one can see, the options available to oncologists and other physicians to manage pain are extensive. In fewer than 15 percent of patients will invasive procedures be required; however, they do provide an excellent chance of pain control in patients who do not seem to be responding to other forms of therapy. Proper pain management requires careful communication between the physician and the patient and with cooperation, the ability to control pain is excellent.

Lecanto Highway, Lecanto, FL 34461, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Dr. C. Joseph BennettNAVIGATING CANCER A possible breakthrough in CLL Mr. Smith has been my patient for eight years. He was diagnosed with CLL or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. After diagnosis, he did not need treatment for years but his WBC, or white blood cell count, increased to more than 100,000. (Normal is less than 10,000.) He was started on chemotherapy He has responded well to chemotherapy so far. CLL is a chronic disease as the name indicates. Patients require treatment with different medications intermittently. They usually live for many years and survival in excess of 10 years is not uncommon. He read about some new research in CLL and wanted me to address the issue in my article. This is still very experimental, but promising. It was presented in the American Society of Hematology meeting in New Orleans. Although the results come from pilot clinical trials conducted in a small number of patients with leukemia and lymphoma, these are patients with very aggressive and refractory disease, and yet some of them have shown dramatic responses to the therapy, going into complete remission and no longer showing visible signs of tumor on computed tomography (CT) scans. The novel approach to therapy involves extracting T cells (a kind of WBC) from the patient, subjecting the cells to a special process (called chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) cell engineering), and then infusing the engineered T cells back into the patient. The study is very preliminary and has been done in only 15 patients. Thirteen of the 15 patients treated were evaluable for response, and 12 of those 13 responded: 7 patients had complete remissions, and 5 had partial remissions. These were all patients who were not responding to any other treatment. This looks grea,t but there is a catch. The treatment carries very significant side effects and patients had to be admitted to ICU or intensive care unit. Once the T cells start to expand in the body, nearly all patients develop acute toxicity. These side effects include a high fever, low BP breathing difficulties, delirium, aphasia, and neurologic toxicity. Fortunately, these were temporary, but the side effects were life-threatening. Really, the study is only preliminary and extremely small. We need a larger study with hundreds of patients and much longer follow-up. After that, the benefit may or may not be so good as it appears. I am cautiously optimistic for this treatment modality. I strongly believe that such research must continue in only appropriate patients. This may help lots of patients in the future.

HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, FEBRUARY18, 2014 C3 rural areas, the road, shoulder, ditch and grass start to blend together. Glaucoma is a complicated disease in which fluid pressure within the eye damages the optic nerve and leads to progressive, irreversible vision loss. With glaucoma, usually there are no symptoms, nor is there an X-ray or blood test to diagnose it, Rowda said. This is what makes glaucoma so dangerous. A combination of tests, performed during regular and thorough eye exams, is the best way to detect glaucoma before the damage is done. Macular degeneration is the gradual deterioration of the macula, a region of the retina responsible for central vision. It comes in two forms: dry and wet. About 96 percent of people have the dry type, which is less severe and could take 10 to 20 years to develop significant changes, Rowda said. It is treated with eye vitamins; the most common formula is called AREDS II, which includes vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, copper, lutein, zexanthin and omega-3 fatty acids. Wet macular degeneration usually involves a serious decline in vision in a short time (a few days to a few months). Rowda called wet macular degeneration treatment one of the greatest success stories in all of medicine within the last five years. Previously, lasers treated wet macular degeneration, with a success rate of about 5 percent; today, injections slow it with a success rate of about 80 percent, he said. Diabetic retinopathy refers to damaged small blood vessels in the retina, caused by chronically high blood glucose levels in people with poorly controlled diabetes. It is the most common for of diabetic eye disease, which is the leading cause of blindness. In itsearly to moderate stages, diabetic retinopathy has no symptoms. By the time people notice problems, such as floaters or double vision, diabetic retinopathy is often severe and difficult to control. A comprehensive dilated eye exam on an annual basis is the best course for early detection. Healthy Habits Maintaining a healthy weight is the most important factor in good eye health, Rowda said. He recommends sticking to a diet high in vegetables, with small meat portions and few sweets or processed foods. Exercise, even if its just walking 15 to 20 minutes three to four times per week, can help keep weight under control. In terms of visiting an eye doctor, diabetics should schedule annual exams, as diabetes significantly increases the chance of blindness. Others who should have yearly appointments include smokers, people who are overweight and those who have eye problems in their family histories. Seniors who are in good health can go every two to three between appointments, Rowda said. EYESContinued from Page C1 Q:I have a full upper denture, as well as lower one. The upper is fine but the lower one is horrible lately. I have lost about 60 pounds recently and I am 82 years old. Because of this I have been to my dentist and two others. All of them told me they couldnt help me because I lost too much bone and I have a jaw line that is almost flat. It has gotten to the point that all I eat is soft foods. I have been told implants can help but my medical condition will not allow that to happen. I have told them this but all I get is a response of I cant help you. I have been reading your column for a while and you seem to always come up with an idea or alternative. Is there anything you can think of that might help? I am not looking for miracles. I just want things to improve a bit so I can at least chew some softer foods. I hope you can help. A: Thanks for your questions and your faith in me. Dont get too excited, but I do have an idea you might want to consider. You may not realize it but there are a lot of people that have a situation similar to what you have explained. Of course, a thorough exam is necessary, however, I think I understand your situation. People in your situation often get sores on the ridge, or top, of the jaw, as well as the area we call the vestibule. The vestibule is the area from the peak of the bone to the trough going towards the cheek. In fact, the trough itself is the vestibule. In most situations this area is very shallow. I am going to assume that you have some vestibule, meaning it is not at the same level as the peak of the bone. If, in fact, there is no vestibule, there is very little that can be done to improve a well-made denture. There are times that a denture is made where the flange of the denture extends beyond the limits of the vestibule. This is a big problem because in the vestibule exists muscle attachments. If the denture is pressing on these muscle attachments you will experience pain and lifting of the denture with the movement of the lip. The best way to handle this is to make a new denture that properly records the extent of the vestibule and the muscles in the area. This takes some time and effort but it can be done. There are specific techniques that can be used successfully that allow the denture to lie in place and resist movement due to the muscles and the vestibule. Another thing that needs to be paid attention to is the way the upper and lower teeth come A denture dilemna Dr. Frank VasciminiSOUND BITES See DENTURE/ Page C4 000HAKE 000H4E6 Friends of the Homosassa Public Library For book sale information call 352-382-2440 or visit the library website: http://citruslibraries.org SPRING BOOK SALE SPRING BOOK SALE FEBRUARY 27 MARCH 1, 2014 at the Homosassa Library on Grandmarch Ave., Homosassa Great bargains in recycled reading!

together, as well as the movement of the tongue. As you might remember from previous columns related to denture construction, there are many steps that need to be paid attention to in the process of fabricating a set of dentures. In a situation like yours there is very little leeway for error. The last thing you might consider is the use of a soft spongy liner against the gums instead of the hard acrylic that is used in conventional dentures. This will help avoid sores that are the result of a hard denture against tender gums. I hope this has helped and given you hope in your situation.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

Both of them are viral. They are not caused by bacteria and therefore dont require antibiotics for treatment. Flus and colds are generally going to run their course and they can have similar symptoms. It can be confusing to tell them apart, but here are a couple of tips. Fever is rare for a cold and common with the flu. Fever can be 100 to 101 to 102 degrees and sometimes even higher and persist for days. Obviously, if the fever is 104, 105, there may be some issues that need to be addressed by the doctor if they are not controlled with Tylenol and aspirin. Headaches and body pains are more common with the flu. Fatigue is more commonly noted with the flu than the cold. But when you are sick, you can be somewhat tired and exhausted. Sneezing and sore throat issues are most likely seen with colds but can also been seen with the flu. Chest discomfort and coughing can be seen with both and can sometimes be very severe with a flu virus. Whether it is a cold or whether it is a flu, antibiotics are not the answer but plenty of supportive care is helpful. Supportive measures include plenty of rest; do not try to do all your normal activities and run yourself down. Drink lots of fluids and stay hydrated. Not only is this going to make you feel better and shorten the duration of your disease process, but also it will thin mucus that clings to the airway. You can use a NETI pot, spray or squeeze bottle with saline which is a salt water solution that will wash away and bathe the mucous membranes and make you feel a little bit better and less congested. Be sure if you are making this product at home you use distilled water, not tap water, to be safe and not introduce any potential parasites that might be in the water. Over-the-counter medications that are available include antihistamines, decongestants, pain relievers and cough syrups, and also may even include alternative medicine products such as Ginseng which is suggested to have a positive effect on the mucous membrane reducing inflammation and postnasal drip. Biyinpian is also an ancient Greek herbal remedy available to use. Activated hexose correlated compound (AHCC) is an enzyme type of product that supposedly boosts the immune system. Alternative medicine still seems to be still quite controversial, but these products are fairly safe. Humidifiers in the room help balance the humidity in the air. Warm moist humidifiers are very effective in cold environments. We must be careful if little children are being treated. These devices can heat and be dangerous if kids are close and can come in contact with the device. Also make sure it is clean. Periodic maintenance will help avoid growth of bacteria and molds. Chicken soup, of course, is the remedy of the ages. It was thought that the benefits were purely psychological, but there is some evidence suggesting that there are substances that have an anti-inflammatory effect and what we know for sure is that it is warm and liquidy such that it speeds up the movement and displacement of mucus, relieving some congestion. Cleanliness is also very helpful. Getting up and taking a nice warm shower makes you feel better. Washing hands frequently to make sure you do not spread the cold or flu to anybody else is also important. While you are sitting there recovering from the flu or cold, consider getting the flu shot next year. Believe it or not, vaccinations prevent millions of cases of flu-associated illnesses. It is very safe, easy to get and can be utilized on anyone 6 months or older. Contrary to the old wives tale, the flu shot will not make you sick or get the flu.

The growing and disproportionate urological gap The impact of the increasing demand for urological services by the aging baby boomers will have a major impact on the demand for urologists and related healthcare services over the next several years. While there has been an overall increase in aging population, the fastest growing segment is people who are older than 85. Urological diseases disproportionately affect the elderly and also there has been an overall increase in the incidence of kidney stone diseases, urological cancers, urinary incontinence and benign prostate problems. The increasing demand for urological services is creating a rapidly widening gap between demand and supply of urologists in the United States. Drs. Raj Pruthi and colleagues published the results of Recent Trends in the Urology Workforce in the United States in the journal Urology and it makes grim reading. The supply of urological surgeons has decreased by more than 10percent per 100,000 population since 1991. After 2006, the number of urologists per 100,000 people has fallen below 3.18 (which was the ratio in 1981), suggesting that the overall supply is not keeping with the rising population. Rural areas have disproportionally borne the brunt of the loss in the urological workforce with only 12percent urologists working in rural areas while 19.7percent of the U.S. population lives in rural areas. While studies have shown an increasing demand for surgical healthcare from an aging population, the significant shortage of urological workforce is likely to worsen. Some 44percent of practicing urologists are older than 55 years and more than 7percent are older than 70 years. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has projected that 14,000 urologists will be needed by 2015 and 16,000 will be required by 2020 as against the current 9,775 urologists currently practicing in the U.S. One estimate projected a shortfall of 32percent by the year 2030. The fiscal pressures placed on Graduate Medical Education funding through Medicare is likely to worsen, further limiting the ability to increase the number of urological surgeons in the near future. Policymakers will need to consider various factors if the current trend is to be stalled and reversed if at all possible. Removing the cap on Graduate Medical Education funding for residency training, offering incentives for urologists to practice in rural areas, incorporation of telemedicine into urological practice and the increased use of physician extenders such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants will all need to be considered. While the government has rightly recognized the growing need for family medical, internal medicine physicians and pediatricians, the rising need for specialists should not be lost sight of. With the anticipated rise in the proportion of people older than 65 years of age from the current 12.8percent to 20percent in 2030 and the number of centenarians from the current 79,000 to 200,000 in 2030 the demand for urological care is certain to rise.Udaya Kumar.

NEWS NOTES The Coastal Region Friends of the Library elected their 2014 officers at the annual meeting in the library community room last month. They are President Kathy Robey, Vice President Lucy Ann Wines, Treasurer Janice Griffin, Secretary Lesa Ehlers and directors Barbara Gilley, Ruth Levins, Madeline Markowitz, Jim Patton and Anita Shadler. Afterward, former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and President Franklin D. stopped by in the person of William and Sue Wills to entertain the gathering of library supporters. Having served the presidency the longest of any American presidential family, the 32nd president, Roosevelts have fascinated biographers for years with their challenging triumphs and tragedies faced with their 12-year journey through history. The Willses hail from Ocean City, Md., and have been presenting 33 of our presidents for 17 years, racking up an astonishing 8,400 presentations to date, in 35 states. Waltzing flamboyantly into the library community room, the couple appeared as 15-year-olds at their first dance, revealing that they were both Roosevelts fifth cousins, once removed. FDR waxed eloquent in poetic letters he wrote to Eleanor and even taught dancing to youths as a volunteer. On St. Patricks Day in 1905, the couple were married in the home of a friend and from 1906 to 1916, one girl and five boys were born to them. Time and again, Eleanor wrote a series of letters to FDR with timely suggestions, sometimes taken to heart, sometimes not. Wills precise portrayal of FDR dreading the end of his personal life when he defeated Herbert Hoover in March of 1933 was uncanny. He often lamented missing his Missy, the controversial secretary that held a close personal bond with him throughout his life. Eleanor dealt with Missy admirably and carved out a profoundly service-oriented life of her own, championing many causes and winning the affection of many worldwide. Wills literally became FDR with the speech that will live forever in our history: The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Our greatest primary function is to put people back to work. And thus began the 100 days of the ABC recovery programs: WPA, the CCC camps, etc., and later Social Security. We were taken back in time to his famous fireside chats and all the while, Eleanor was writing her My Day columns and Missy was fast becoming FDRs constant companion. Eventually, Eleanor became FDRs eyes and ears throughout her worldwide travels. Boldly, Eleanor invited Marion Anderson to the White House to entertain. We learned that Mary Bethune, founder of Bethune University in Daytona Beach, accompanied Eleanor to a segregated event in Alabama. Always caring for our countrys underdogs, including Jewish orphans, her philosophies influenced FDR greatly. She spoke out, often referring to the four basic freedoms (speech, worship of God, from want and from fear). The third term brought the Land Lease Plan, the United Nations Atlantic Charter of 26 nations. All four sons of the president served in the military and Eleanor was appointed assistant secretary for the Civil Defense Department. With constant visits to the troops and visits to the 1943 war zones, Eleanor worked for the passage of the G.I. Bill of Rights. D-Day, June 6, 1944, and FDRs fourth term in 1945 and his death in Warm Springs, Ga., while having a portrait made, shocked the nation and Eleanors closing remarks brought an end to the presentation: The only realization of tomorrow is the eradication of the doubts of today. Fondly referred to as the First Lady of the World, Eleanor continued to be at the forefront of the nations important issues for 17 years until her passing in 1962 at age 77. A delegate to the United Nations and the Advancement of the Declaration of Universal Human Rights, she was the one who made it possible for the president to carry on despite his personal and physical issues throughout their marriage.

Special to the ChroniclePetty Officer Third Class Zach Hladik of Ocala and Seaman Bobby Stewart of Lecanto, both members of the Manatee Division of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps, recently graduated from Petty Officer Leadership Academy. The six-day training in Branford was held during winter break at Middle Florida Baptist Assembly. The two shipmates, along with fellow cadets from across the state, were trained to lead squads, give commands and counsel fellow cadets. The group learned how to lead physical training, how to teach a class and public speaking. Fifteen-year-old Hladik said takes a lot of compassion and empathy to lead. The 10th-grader said the training taught him about earning his cadets trust. Stewart was advanced to the rank of petty officer third class based on meeting all qualifications after the training. The ninth-grader remembered being sleep deprived and spending a lot of time in the classroom during POLA. After graduation the two were assigned a squad leader position in their division. Hladik stepped up to lead the indoctrination squad for new cadets joining the division. Hell have to ensure his recruits meet the requirements to move up to a permanent squad. At the January drill, further instruction on the care and feeding of a squad was presented to the petty officers, along with other division leadership, by Retired Master Sgt. Steadroy Wilkins. He said a squad leader is the most important position because squads are the backbone of the military, and gave cadets tips such as learning everything about each of their squad members, carrying a notebook to keep all the details straight, making sure every member is trained well and using talents of cadets in their squads. The Sea Cadet Corps is a youth organization for Americans age 11 to 17. Manatee Division meets at Station Yankeetown. For more information, call Lt.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY18, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Kevin Barry, an Irish author, said, When you wake up, instead of checking emails on your phone, or counting your retweets, pick up a pen and scratch a few sentences into a notebook. Or sit at a computer keyboard and type a few articles into a word processor. Over the last seven columns, I have been stressing counting, primarily by the defenders. Here is one more example, by way of revision because someone once told me that repetition is good in a teaching environment. (I hope he is right.) South zooms into four hearts. West leads the spade queen. How should the declarer-play and defense go? Note that three no-trump has no chance. That is usually a tough contract to make when you have two or three aces to dislodge. The defenders have a lot of time to establish and run their long suit. In four hearts, South starts with four losers: one in each suit. He has 10 possible tricks: two spades, four hearts, two diamonds and two clubs. However, he will get those two club tricks only if East errs, since declarer has no dummy entry outside clubs. Souths best chance is to win trick one with the spade ace and play a club, hoping the opponent with the ace wins immediately. West, though, should play his eight, starting a highlow with an even number. East should then work out that declarer started with two clubs. (With four, South would not be attacking clubs this quickly; he would surely be drawing trumps.) So East should duck the first club, take the second, and return a spade to kill the contract.

MotherMother Dear Annie: My sisters husband sexually assaulted my 18-year-old daughter while she slept on their sofa. We kept this a secret for three years, and then it finally came out. When my sister heard, she decided to protect her children from the truth about their father by divorcing my family so we would not reveal the secret. She claimed her husband was blackedout drunk and therefore not responsible for the assault. Because there was no intent (presumably), he wasnt at fault. That was four years ago. My sisters sons are the same age as mine, and they used to spend many nights together. To add salt to our wounds, the rest of my family supports her decision. They no longer take my kids to her house or to her childrens birthday parties. They never tell us when my sister is at their home. They celebrate holidays with her family before visiting us. My kids and I are completely torn up over all of this and so deeply wounded, not only by the loss of my sisters family, but also by the lack of support from the rest of them. I dont understand how my parents and my other siblings could possibly support her decision. Are we wrong to feel betrayed and abandoned? We are about ready to wash our hands of the lot of them, although it isnt what we want. My parents and siblings have told me that this is the new normal and that my family should be grateful for the times they see us instead of focusing on the times when we arent included. It feels as if we are being punished because my daughters assault was not that bad and she wasnt willing to shove it under the rug for the rest of her life. Open for Input Dear Open: We understand that your parents and siblings dont want to lose contact with your sister by openly supporting you. They know she would cut all of them off. Instead, this is the accommodation they have made in order to have a relationship with everyone. The real problem is that your sister and her husband refuse to address the assault, never apologized or tried to make amends, and blamed you and your daughter for bringing it up. We also dont know whether her husband has ever dealt with his drinking, which is no excuse for attacking another person. You will not get the support you deserve from your family. Either accept what they offer or dont. But please make sure your daughter is dealing with this in a healthy way. Contact RAINN (rainn.org) for information and help. Dear Annie: My in-laws, whom I adore, do not have soap in their bathrooms. My husband and I take soap when we go to visit, but that doesnt change the fact that no one else washes their hands after using the restroom. They then proceed to prepare meals that we are supposed to eat. We have tried sending decorative soap dispensers and asking Wheres the soap? but nothing changes. Clean Freak Dear Clean: Everyone should wash with soap and water after using the bathroom and especially before preparing food. It helps prevent the spread of germs, some of which can be quite harmful. Have you asked your in-laws why they dont wash properly? If nothing changes, send them this letter and tell them that Annie says they need to use soap before someone gets sick, fer cryin out loud. Dear Annie: Kudos to Tapped Out for complaining about checkout line panhandling. Its happening nearly everywhere. Why should I have to deal with solicitors when I just want to buy a hamburger? Management may think it makes their companies look good, but it causes me to go elsewhere until the campaign is over.
