Bank robbery suspect nabbed A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThe other half of a sibling duo accused of sexually abusing children in 2010 has been apprehended in Oklahoma and returned to Citrus County. Matthew Owens Rider, 28, was transported to Florida on Monday and charged with sexual battery on a child younger than 12 and lewd and lascivious molestation of a child younger than 12 years old. No bond was allowed. According the Citrus County Sheriffs Office, the agency began investigating Rider and his brother, David Allan Rider, 30, in 2010. David Rider was arrested here in 2010. A warrant was later issued for Matthew Rider in 2013, but he fled to Oklahoma. Matthew was reportedly found hiding underneath a staircase in a residence in Jefferson County, Okla., when law enforcement personnel apprehended him this week, according to CCSO. Officials said there are two victims in Matthew Riders case: an 8-year-old girl and a 9-year-old girl, both from Homosassa. According to Matthews recent arrest affidavit, the girls said they were touched inappropriately by the suspect on their privates. According to the sheriffs office, detectives continued to pursue leads until enough evidence was gathered to arrest Matthew. David Rider was convicted on charges stemming from his 2010 arrest for lewd and lascivious molestation of a A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerPolice in Ocala arrested a man wanted for armed bank robbery in Citrus County a scant few hours after the incident began in Beverly Hills on Tuesday morning. Serafin Cuchy Solis, 30, of South Lee Street, Beverly Hills, was arrested by Ocala Police early in the afternoon. Today was an excellent example of what teamwork is all about, said Capt. David DeCarlo of the Citrus County Sheriffs Office (CCSO) Criminal Investigations Division. From the first deputies on scene, to the evidence technicians, the deputies, detectives, dispatchers, crime intelligence personnel the entire response led to the arrest of this dangerous man in a very effective, efficient and timely manner. According to officials, deputies responded at 9:30 a.m. to the SunTrust Bank on North Lecanto Highway regarding a robbery during which the suspect brandished a weapon. According to witnesses, a Hispanic male approached a teller, displayed the weapon and demanded money. No one was injured during the robbery. He reportedly left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot behind the Winn-Dixie at Park Plaza. Sheriffs officials conducted a massive Child sex crimes suspect arrested in Okla.

Danielle Tyrrel, 20, of Crystal River, was driving a 2010 Hyundai Genesis southbound when it crashed at 9:50 p.m. Monday on U.S. 231, four miles south of Montgomery, according to a news release from the Alabama Department of Public Safety (ADPS). The vehicle left the roadway and overturned several times. Cheyenne Moore, 17, a passenger, was pronounced dead at the scene. ADPS Sgt. Steve Jarrett said he had been told that Moore had been staying in Montgomery but was returning to Florida. He could not confirm her place of residence.

Bill would repeal tuition increases lawTALLAHASSEE Florida legislators may get rid of automatic tuition increases that universities are supposed to charge. A Senate panel on Tuesday approved a bill that would repeal a law that requires tuition rates to go up automatically each year by the rate of inflation if state legislators dont raise rates. Last year, universities raised tuition by 1.7 percent, even though Gov. Rick Scott had vetoed a 3 percent tuition hike included in the state budget.

The outlook remains negative, the report said. The rating downgrade is based on significant depletion in unrestricted liquidity, debt acceleration risk and continued poor financial performance that increases the risk of a payment default, the report states. Beaty said, however, that the Moodys report also noted HCA is expected to cover about $37.5 million in debt with its transaction for Citrus Memorial. By signing a letter of intent with Hospital Corporation of America a much larger organization we aim to improve the financial health of our hospital so we can focus on whats most important: improving public health, Beaty said in a statement.

The suspect was wearing a long-sleeve plaid blue and yellow button-up shirt, beige baseball hat with a white Polo emblem, jeans and carrying a blue North Carolina Tar Heels bag. He was said to have a gun. According to the CCSO, a be-on-the-lookout notice was issued to surrounding counties and information was released via social media outlets. Leads began filtering into CCSO, which led to the positive identification of the suspect. Information was then relayed to the Ocala Police Department about Solis potentially being in their town. Solis was arrested without incident. According to authorities, the weapon and an undisclosed amount of cash were recovered. Solis was expected to be transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

ARRESTContinued from Page A1 Police: Body of missing legislative intern foundTALLAHASSEE Tallahassee police said theyve found the body of a missing Florida State University graduate and legislative intern who disappeared after watching the Super Bowl with friends at a bar. A Tallahassee Police Department spokesman said Tuesday that police had identified a body found downtown as 23-year-old Ryan Uhre. Uhre disappeared on Feb. 2 and was last seen walking home, wearing a Hawaiian-style shirt with surfing Santas. Uhre graduated from FSU in December and had just started an internship in the office of Rep. Richard Stark, D-Weston. Police spokesman David Northway said the cause of death has not been determined. Police were able to pinpoint Uhres location after examining additional video from downtown businesses. That led to the discovery of a window that had previously been boarded up on the second story of a building.Central Florida woman accused of stealing dogPORT ORANGE, A 75-year-old central Florida woman is accused of stealing and giving away her neighbors purebred golden retriever. Volusia County spokesman Gary Davidson says Celeste Neese is accused of stealing the dog, named Dumpling, earlier this month after complaining the animal was mistreated.

Ashley Foster told her story to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, explaining she waited until she was 21 to report the crimes that began when she was 13. Police taped a phone call in which the cousin confessed, but he couldnt be prosecuted because more than three years had passed. STATE& LOCAL Page A3WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressJACKSONVILLE The Florida software designer accused of killing a black teenager during an argument over loud music compared himself to a rape victim, telling his fiancee in a recorded jailhouse phone call that the police were trying to blame him for the shooting when he was only defending himself. Michael Dunn, 47, was convicted Saturday of three counts of attempted seconddegree murder for shooting at three of Davis friends who were all inside an SUV, but the jury hung on a firstdegree murder charge for Davis death. Dunn, who is white, has argued that he fired at Davis after the teen threatened him and raised a shotgun or something that looked like one after he asked the teens to turn down their rap music. No shotgun was found in the SUV. Dunn is facing 60 years in prison. Prosecutors released a series of taped phone calls and jailhouse visits Tuesday. In a December 2012 phone call with his fiancee, Rhonda Rouer, Dunn compared himself to a rape victim, saying the detectives wanted to blame him for the shooting, not Davis and his friends. So not to wallow in, you know, despair or anything, but you know I was thinking a lot about this today and I was like Im, Im the victim here, Dunn told Rouer. I was the one that was being preyed upon and I fought back. And then, you know, its not quite the same, but it made me think of like the old TV shows and movies where, like, how police used to think when a chick got raped, Oh, its her fault because of the way she was dressed. Yeah, and Im like, so its my fault because I asked them to turn their music down, he said in a laughing voice. I got attacked and I fought back because I dont want to be a victim and now Im in trouble. I refuse to be a victim and now Im incarcerated. Shooter compared self to rape victim A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The growing drumbeat for public access to one of the areas premier natural wonders will receive a hearing at a town hall meeting slated for 6 p.m. Friday at City Hall. Many proponents of access to the Three Sisters Springs property say they have waited too long to walk the planks on the boardwalk inside the 57acre property and also believe opening land access will relieve the scenes of bedlam often found on the water at the site. Proponents of greater tourism said the boardwalk is the ideal spot for manatee watching for visitors. City and county officials, the business community and some residents are pushing for the property to be accessed by land, and soon. However, officials with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service the managers of the property have a different take. The agencys pledge of financial support for the development of the property to ready it for public access has been scuttled by cuts at the agency and fiscal belt-tightening. And recently, the newly named project leader of the USFWSs office in charge of wildlife complexes, including Crystal River, mentioned that the feasibility of public access in the next year is going to be difficult to accomplish. We have four major projects that are going to be happening on that property this coming year, said refuge manager James Burnett. He said the projects include the construction of a new bridge/entrance, the creation of a wetland area on the southeast corner of the land; work on the shores of Lake Lynda and a shoreline erosion control project. I just cant see doing all those projects and then having people there at the same time. If we want to do it right, we should perhaps wait until some of these projects are done, Burnett said. The agency also wants to build a road, parking lot and toilet facilities for visitors before access is granted. A recent grant will enable USFWS to build a new entrance on Cutler Spur Boulevard to the property. He said his agency is committed to implementing the management plan for the property and to have it done sooner rather than later, but that patience is necessary to have things done right. But Bob Mercer, a community activist and resident of the immediate area near Three Sisters, said for many in the community their patience has run low. We cant wait anymore. I can bet you the projects will not meet their target dates. They will not have it ready to open during manatee season in 2015. No way, there is always going to be something else wrong, Mercer said. Mercer said he is collaborating with Dr. Paresh Desai, another community activist, and others to create a plan that could allow public access to the property as early as this summer. He said major construction can co-exist with what he calls specific and very limited access to the property. In places like New York City, they build skyscrapers with people moving around. They can build construction fencing and do other things to be able to accommodate people and still do their work. Its done every day in this country, Mercer said. He said his plan includes selling tickets at various tour/dive shops for a shuttle to the property, but only for two 2-hour visits. Mercer said the shuttles can use the Kings Bay Drive entrance to access the property while the new entrance is still under construction.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Three Sisters town hall to examine public access Officials insist they merely want to make sure work at facility is done right CHRISVANORMER Staff writerCITRONELLE Two weeks after 43 animals were seized from adjoining residences, the houses have been demolished. A crew from Cross Construction Services arrived Tuesday morning to level the concrete block buildings at 9050 and 9052 N. Rainelle Ave. that had been condemned for structural issues by the countys code compliance division on Feb. 4, after animal control officers removed dogs, cats, turtles, chickens and a cockatoo because of crowded and unsanitary living conditions, according to the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. They scrape the site clean, said Kimberly Corbin, county code compliance division director, describing the contractors work. They destroy the septic system so theres nothing left. Corbin said it is not unusual for two side-by-side houses to be condemned and demolished, particularly in older neighborhoods. In this case, the two houses were owned by one person who rented them to one family comprised of parents with adult children. But we dont see that too often, Corbin said. The county would never demolish a house just for being dirty, Corbin assured. It had structural problems, Corbin said. A tree was growing into the roof. It didnt have proper plumbing. It didnt have adequate facilities. Air quality was poor. There were electrical problems. The building inspector signed the order. People who allow junk and debris to collect in and around their homes could be violating a nuisance ordinance, but not to the level of reaching a demolition order for structural issues, Corbin explained. A demolition order is determined after a visit by a safety evaluation team from fire and environmental health agencies and a building inspector. The building official issued a 10-day demolition order after reviewing the report this case. The property owner did not appeal the demolition or get a court order to stop it, Corbin said. An appeal would have required the owner to get a structural engineer to plan a way to bring the buildings up to code that would not cost more than the property was worth. Traditionally, if its more than 75 percent of the value to repair it, thats going to be the gauge, Corbin said. The value, I think, was only in the $20,000 range. The property owner will have 30 days to pay for the demolition. If he does not pay it, a lien will be recorded on his property, Corbin said. Sheriffs office media relations manager Heather Yates said the State Attorneys Office should decide this week whether to file charges regarding the condition of the animals. Tobey Phillips, Citrus County public information officer, said most of the seized animals will be ready for adoption today. Only one animal was in such poor condition that it had to be euthanized. Three animals are not yet ready for new homes, according to Rosenberger. Eight animals needed major dental treatment. Many had to be treated for intestinal parasites. Three puppies currently are learning social skills at volunteers foster homes. The cockatoo and two turtles already have been adopted.

There are 315 days left in the year. Todays Highlight in History: On Feb. 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, clearing the way for the U.S. military to relocate and intern Japanese-Americans during World War II. On this date: In 1881, Kansas prohibited the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages. In 1945, in World War II, 30,000 U.S. Marines began landing on Iwo Jima, where they began a successful month-long battle to seize control of the island from Japanese forces. In 1976, calling the issuing of Executive Order 9066 a sad day in American history, President Gerald R. Ford issued a proclamation confirming that the order had been terminated with the formal cessation of hostilities of World War II. In 2008, an ailing Fidel Castro resigned the Cuban presidency after nearly a half-century in power; his brother Raul was later named to succeed him. Ten years ago: The AFL-CIO endorsed Democrat John Kerry for president. One year ago: The United Nations said the number of U.S. drone strikes in Afghanistan had risen sharply in 2012 compared with 2011. Todays Birthdays: Singer Smokey Robinson is 74.

Nielsen company figures released Tuesday show 11.3 million people tuned in to watch Fallons New York debut on Monday night. It was the second-biggest audience for Tonight since May 2009, when Jay Leno stepped down for Conan OBriens brief run as host. Fallons Tonight debut fell short of the 14.6 million who tuned in Feb. 6 to see Leno sign off, again, after 22 years as host in Burbank. Enjoying a post-Winter Olympics time slot, Fallon drew 2 million-plus viewers more than OBriens June 2009 Tonight opening audience of nearly 9.2 million. NBC says Fallons Tonight debut, with guests Will Smith and U2, was up 71 percent over his Feb. 6 Late Night farewells audience of 6.6 million.

and statements towards employees. The Chroniclesattempts to reach Adams for comment Tuesday were unsuccessful. Adams faced a similar situation in October when County Administrator Brad Thorpe sent him a memo telling him to stop contacting his staff because, he said, Adams had established a pattern of unfounded accusations and insults. Parsons does not work for Thorpe. Both Thorpe and Parsons are hired independently by the county commission. Parsons and Adams engaged in a string of emails regarding the commissioners request during the Feb. 11 county commission meeting that Parsons seek a state ethics opinion whether Commissioners Rebecca Bays and Joe Meek had conflicts of interest regarding the County Road 491 medical corridor project. Meek is chairman of the Economic Development Council. Bays husband, Mike, is a member of the same board. The EDC, whose members are not appointed by the county commission, supports the medical corridor. Adams is a vocal critic of it. Parsons told Adams during the board meeting that the state Ethics Commission will not accept inquiry requests about county commissioners from other county commissioners. One commissioner may seek an ethics opinion about his or her own self, but not of others. In an email Monday morning to Parsons, Adams said he wanted the issue addressed. Is voting on these two boards inappropriate and unethical? Adams wrote. Parsons responded with state law that spelled out rules for an ethics opinion, and that the only role she would play is to assist a commissioner who wanted to ask for an opinion on his or her own potential conflict. Adams then accused Parsons of botching an interlocal agreement with Hernando County for each county to use the others landfill during times of an emergency. Adams did not provide details, and Parsons said in an interview the agreement is in place for either county to utilize if needed. In her email to Adams on Tuesday morning, Parsons said she respected the office of a county commissioner, but that Adams was overstepping his role. I will no longer stand for being continuously beleaguered with remarks regarding my age, experience, or competency, she wrote, copying the response to Thorpe and the other four county commissioners. Commissioner Joe Meek said Adams behavior is out of control. The hostility, dysfunction and chaos continue, he said. His continual beratement of her and other senior staff members creates a hostile environment. Its very problematic.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY19, 2014 A5 email@example.com www.superioralf.com 4865 Gulf to Lake Hwy., Lecanto 352.746.5483 000HAN0 YOU ARE NOT ALONE YOU YOU ARE ARE NOT NOT ALONE ALONE WE ARE HERE TO HELP. 22% of seniors over the age of 70 suffer from memory loss WE ARE HERE TO HELP.

Associated PressDES MOINES, Iowa While many states passed sweeping abortion laws last year, the Iowa General Assembly endorsed just one a perplexing measure befitting one of the few legislatures under divided control. The GOP-led House and the Democratic-controlled Senate, in a compromise, put Gov. Terry Branstad in charge of signing off on any payments for publicly funded abortions. Republicans believed the added scrutiny might be a brake on abortions under Medicaid. But about seven months after the new rule took effect, the consequences have surprised everyone, and illustrated the trickiness of bipartisan lawmaking on the issue. Branstad, a Republican and abortion opponent, hasnt approved any payments. But the few patients who were eligible for Medicaid-funded abortions received them anyway. Thats because the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics where most of these procedures have been done in past years simply decided not to bill the state for the abortions it has performed. Those on all sides of the issue are now pondering what the work-around means for them and the larger abortion battle. Abortion rights advocates arent happy. At its heart its very deceitful. The governor gets to say he never approved any Medicaid payments because no one ever asked him to. Hes never presented with the bill, said Jill June, longtime president of Planned Parenthood of the Heartland. Conservative Republicans see something gained. The ultimate goal is to make sure taxpayer dollars are not being used for a purpose that people find morally unconscionable, said Rep. Matt Windschitl. Branstad, who is running for re-election, was spared some difficult decisions. Denying payments could have put him in violation of federal guidelines that require Medicaid to fund abortions in some cases.NATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY19, 2014 A7 000H8WV CALL 1-888-ANY-TIPS (1-888-269-8477) www.CrimeStop persCitrus.com Funded by the Office of the Attorney General, Crime Stoppers Trust Fund of Citrus County, Inc.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Remee Jo Lee cries every day when she thinks about the baby she lost after her ex-boyfriend tricked her into taking abortion drugs. It hits her when she sees pregnant women or a diaper changing station in a womens bathroom. She feels the pain when she walks through the childrens section of a department store. And now shes pleading with lawmakers to pass a bill that would have allowed the state to prosecute John Andrew Welden for the death of her unborn child. This has just been the most devastating experience for me. This never goes away. I deal with this every day, Lee told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, rapidly twisting a facial tissue in her hands as she spoke through tears. The framed sonogram images of her unborn child sat on the lectern in front of her. This has just been very, very hard and I never want anyone else to go through this ever again and I want the state of Florida to show that this is not acceptable. That you cant get away with this. The committee voted 6-2 to pass the bill (SB 162) with no debate. Last year the same bill died because the committee refused to take it up for consideration. Lee hopes that her story will be the difference this year. Weve inspired some change in the hearts and minds of others, which is an uplifting experience. Im glad that theyre able to see that this is a reality that can happen, she said after the meeting. Rep. Larry Ahern, RSeminole, is sponsoring the House version of the bill (HB 59). Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, is sponsoring the Senate measure. Both bills have one more committee stop before being considered by the full chambers. Lee found out she was pregnant last year and said Welden told her immediately he didnt want her to have the baby. The son of a doctor, Welden forged his fathers signature in March of 2013 on a prescription for Cytotec and relabeled a pill bottle as the antibiotic amoxicillin. Cytotec is used to induce labor. Welden told Lee that his father said she had an infection and told her to take the mislabeled medication. She experienced severe cramping and went to the hospital, where on Easter she was told that she lost the baby six weeks and five days into her pregnancy. While Hillsborough County sheriffs deputies investigated the case, no state charges were filed. Instead, federal prosecutors initially charged Welden under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act. That charge was dropped as part of a deal in which Welden pleaded guilty to drug-tampering charges. He was sentenced to nearly 14 years in prison. Florida does have a law that allows charges to be filed if a fetus is harmed or killed once its at the point where it would be able to survive outside the womb. The bills would apply the law to any pregnancy. Those convicted could be sentenced to life in prison if they intentionally sought to kill the unborn child.

Budget office: Wage hike would lift pay, cost jobsWASHINGTON Boosting the federal minimum wage as President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats are proposing would increase earnings for more than 16.5 million people by 2016 but also cut employment by roughly 500,000 jobs, Congress nonpartisan budget analyst said Tuesday. In a report containing ammunition for both supporters and opponents of the Democratic election-year proposal, the Congressional Budget Office said gradually raising the minimum from $7.25 hourly to $10.10 would lift 900,000 people above the federal poverty level by 2016. That is out of 45 million who would otherwise live in poverty without an increase. But the analysis also noted a downside: About 0.3 percent fewer jobs, especially for low-income workers; higher costs for business owners and higher prices for consumers.Candy Crush Saga maker King Digital plans IPONEW YORK The maker of the blockbuster mobile game Candy Crush Saga will attempt to raise as much as $500 million in an initial public offering. King Digital Entertainment PLC did not disclose how many shares are expected to be in the IPO or the projected price range. The company has replaced Farmville maker Zynga Inc. as the top maker of games played on Facebook, largely due to the success of Candy Crush Saga. The game was the most downloaded free app on both iPhones and iPads in 2013.Coca-Colas profit slips as US soda sales flagNEW YORK Coca-Colas fourth-quarter profit fell as the worlds biggest beverage maker once again sold less soda in North America. The beverage maker said Tuesday that sales volume declined 1 percent in North America, which included a 3 percent decline in soda. Last week, PepsiCo also said its soda volume slipped. Although Coca-Cola and PepsiCo are tapping emerging markets for growth and sell a wide array of beverages, pressure is mounting for the two companies to figure out how to get soda sales moving in the right direction at home. Americans have been cutting back on soda for years amid health concerns and as beverage aisles have grown increasingly crowded with other options.Actavis to buy Forest Labs in $25 billion dealActavis PLC plans to buy Forest Laboratories Inc. for about $25 billion, boosting the Irish drugmakers presence in U.S. primary-care doctor offices. U.S. physicians, increasingly crunched for time, keep reducing how many drugmaker sales reps they see. Forest gives Actavis not just a broader product line, but also its big U.S. sales force, which now can promote a half-dozen Forest and Actavis products at each doctor visit. That likely will result in more options to present to primary care doctors, compared to rival brand-name drugmakers whose sales reps promote one or two drugs.US homebuilder confidence sinks in FebruaryU.S. homebuilders confidence in the housing market declined sharply this month as the severe weather battering much of the nation keeps many would-be buyers at home. Storms and cold weather dampened builders outlook for sales ahead of the spring home-selling season and could further slow the pace of home construction. The National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo builder sentiment index released Tuesday slid to 46. Thats down from Januarys reading of 56 and is the lowest level since May. Readings below 50 indicate that more builders view sales conditions as poor rather than good.Foreign holdings of US Treasury debt hit recordWASHINGTON Foreign buyers of U.S. Treasury securities increased their holdings to a record in December even though the two largest holders of U.S. government debt China and Japan reduced their shares. The Treasury Department says total foreign holdings rose 1.4 percent in December to $5.79 trillion, surpassing the old record set in March of $5.73 trillion. China, the largest foreign buyer of Treasury debt, reduced its holdings to $1.27 trillion in December. That marked a 3.6 percent drop from Chinas November level of $1.32 trillion, a record for that country. Japan, the secondlargest buyer, trimmed its holdings to $1.18 trillion in December.US credit card late payments up in 4Q from 3QLOS ANGELES Many Americans took on more credit card debt and failed to make timely payments in the final quarter of 2013, when consumers typically crank up spending on holiday shopping. Even so, the national late-payment rate remained close to its lowest level in six years, credit reporting agency TransUnion said Tuesday. The rate of credit card payments at least 90 days overdue was 1.48 percent in the October-December quarter.

Interestrates 000HDYB Associated PressNEW YORK U.S. stocks closed mostly higher Tuesday as traders got back to work after a long holiday weekend. It was a fairly quiet day for investors, who had relatively little news to react to. Health care stocks rose more than the rest of the market after pharmaceutical company Actavis said it was buying rival Forest Laboratories for $25 billion in cash and stock. Investors liked the deal, which is intended to make the companies more competitive in a rapidly changing industry and allow them to command higher prices from insurance companies. Actavis makes the generic versions of hyperactivity disorder medication Concerta and the cholesterol drug Lipitor, while Forest Labs makes the Alzheimers treatment Namenda. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 23.99 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,130.40. The Dow was dragged lower by CocaCola, which fell $1.46, or 4 percent, to $37.47. Coke reported that its income and sales fell in the fourth quarter compared with the same period a year ago. The company said sales volume declined 1 percent in North America, its largest market. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 2.13 points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,840.76. The Nasdaq composite rose 28.76 points, or 0.7 percent, to 4,272.78. Forest Labs and Actavis were among the biggest gainers in the S&P 500 index. Forest Labs soared $19.65, or 28 percent, to $91.04 and Actavis rose $9.59, or 5 percent, to $201.47. Other drug makers also rose sharply. Gilead Sciences rose $2.60, or 3 percent, to $83.81 and Eli Lilly rose $1.05, or 2 percent, to $55.25. The Forest Labs-Actavis deal is the latest in bigname, big-budget deals to be announced so far this year. Last week cable giant Comcast announced a deal to buy Time Warner Cable for $45 billion and Japans Suntory Holdings announced last month it was buying Beam, the maker of Jim Beam and Makers Mark whiskey, for $13.9 billion. Investors should expect more large deals this year, said Mike Serio, regional chief investment officer at Wells Fargo Private Bank. This has been building up for three or four years now, he said. Companies have so much money on their balance sheets and theres only so much you can do with it. You could increase your dividend. You could buy back stock. You could spend it on (business investments), or you can do deals. The stock market is extending its gain from last week, when the S&P 500 increased 2.3 percent. Investors liked what they heard from Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, who said she planned to continue her predecessors market-friendly policies for the time being. The markets turnaround last week was especially notable given the rough start to the year. The S&P 500 has risen seven out of the last eight days. I would be very surprised if we dont see the market move back to its highs very soon, said Randy Frederick, a managing director at Charles Schwab.

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2014 Now hear thisPublic pressure seems to have had an effect on our board of county commissioners. This is a surprise, in the sense that they seemed to have been well on their way to eliminating any voter oversight at all. It became evident, their having to sit through input from the public, which they knew in advance they were going to ignore, was a real imposition on their time. Rather than generating discussion, public input served only to placate the citizen by allowing him or her to let off a little steam. Was it any surprise then that they decided to eliminate public input, or relegate it to a small, well-controlled time frame? Chalk one up for the taxpayer. Even though the commissioners still think they should be able to shut us out, they have reluctantly decided to subject themselves to wasting their time sitting and waiting for the input to run its course. Or did they fear another frivolous lawsuit? Well commissioners, its politics 101, act like you care what the voters think. Thank you for your time.Steve Brown Inverness Fulfilling experienceSince 1993, I have had the honor and the privilege of serving as the Lecanto High School team physician. Along the way, I have met so many great people from the school administrators, faculty, staff and coaches, and have formed very close friendships with quite a few of them. My great joy, however, has been working with the student athletes and their families. It has truly been the most rewarding part of my time in practice and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to invest and engage in the lives of these special folks. I would like to publicly thank my Lecanto family for the many blessings I have received in my time as their team Doc, and I want you to know that my life is way better because you were a part of it.Dr. Michael Bennett WASHINGTONMany Downton Abbey watchers are nostalgia gluttons who grieved when Lord Grantham lost his fortune in Canadian railroad shares. There are, however, a discerning few whose admirable American sensibilities caused them to rejoice about Granthams loss: Now perhaps this amiable but dilettantish toff will get off his duff and get a job. This dramas verisimilitude extends to emphasizing that his lordship had a fortune to squander only because he married an American heiress. By battening on what they disdained, this republics commercial culture, many British aristocrats could live beyond their inherited means actual work being, of course, unthinkable. The deserved decline of Downtons finances demonstrates why estate taxes are unnecessary: Even when Balzacs axiom is accurate (At the bottom of every great fortune without apparent source, theres always some crime) and fortunes are ill-gotten, subsequent generations often soon fritter them away. Call this Darwinian redistribution. Americans have an unslakable appetite for British artistic syrup. Charles Dickens, although a noble spirit and literary genius, could be so insufferably saccharine that his flinty Mr. Gradgrind in Hard Times (The Good Samaritan was a Bad Economist) seemed like a breath of fresh air. In 1841, when Dickens was serializing The Old Curiosity Shop, the ship arriving in America carrying the latest installment reportedly was greeted by dockworkers shouting, Is Nell still alive? But Oscar Wilde was right: One must have a heart of stone to read the death of little Nell without laughing. And one must have a head of stone to enjoy the Downton Abbey scene when Matthew, a fragment of the upper crust whose war wound had left him in a wheel chair, sees that Lavinia, another chip off the old crust, is about to trip while carrying a heavy tray. Gallantry propels Matthew up from his chair and he is ambulatory once again and ever more. It is fitting that PBS offers Downton Abbey to its disproportionately progressive audience. This series is a languid appreciation of a class structure supposedly tempered by the paternalism of the privileged. And if progressivism prevails, America will be Downton Abbey: Upstairs, the administrators of the regulatory state will, with a feudal sense of noblesse oblige, assume responsibility for the lower orders downstairs, gently protecting them from substandard health insurance policies, school choice, gun ownership, large sodas and other decisions that experts consider naughty or calamitous. Why, however, does a normally wise and lucid conservative such as Peter Augustine Lawler, professor of government at Berry College, celebrate the astute nostalgia of Downton Abbey? Writing in Intercollegiate Review, he interprets the Abbey as a welfare state conservatives can revere: Everyone aristocrat or servant knows his place, his relational responsibilities. ... The characters arent that burdened by the modern individualistic freedom of figuring out ones place in the world. ... Many of the customs that seem pointlessly expensive and time consuming, such as dressing for every dinner, are employment programs for worthy servants given secure, dignified places in a world where most ordinary people struggle. ... The nobility of living in service to a lord. ... What aristocracy offers us at its best is a proud but measured acceptance of the unchangeable relationship between privileges and responsibilities in the service of those whom we know and love. Good grief. Americans do not call the freedom to figure out ones place in the world a burden; they call it the pursuit of happiness. And to be given a secure place amid unchangeable relationships is not dignified, it is servitude. One reason Thomas Jefferson, a child of Virginias gentry, preferred an agricultural society to one in which people are piled upon one another in large cities (let our workshops remain in Europe) is that he valued social stasis, as the privileged are wont to do. One reason his rival Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant striver thriving in Manhattan, wanted a restless market society of ample and volatile capital was as a solvent of the entrenched hierarchies that impede upward mobility. Downton Abbey viewers should remember the following rhapsodic hymn to capitalisms unceasing social churning: Constant revolutionizing of production, uninterrupted disturbance of all social conditions. ... All fixed, fast-frozen relations, with their train of ancient and venerable prejudices and opinions, are swept away, all newformed ones become antiquated before they can ossify. All that is solid melts into air. This (from The Communist Manifesto) explains why capitalism liberates. And why American conservatives should understand that some people smitten by Downton Abbey hope to live upstairs during a future reign of gentry progressivism.

Creating this facility was a milestone for the community. Previously, hundreds of Citrus County residents who needed heart surgery had to leave the county, with all the inconvenience and upset that represented for patients and their families. Now, some 2,000 heart surgeries and 10,000 heart catheterizations later, CMHs Heart and Vascular Center is celebrating its 10th anniversary. We are indeed fortunate to have this excellent health resource right here in Citrus County, and we congratulate the hospital staff for delivering years of excellent patient care. In a recent visit with theChronicles editorial board, hospital CEO Ryan Beaty talked about the heart centers milestone as well as another pioneering service for CMH retinal surgery, which is particularly important for a community with a large number of diabetics. Heart care, retinal surgery these are examples of health care excellence, but theyre also economic development assets. The health industry will continue to be an important business segment here, and we support advances in care. However, things are turning out a little differently from how CMH management expected. Beaty said that the number of open heart surgeries has trended down in recent years. He credits local physicians for being more proactive with patients in both prevention and earlier treatment. Also, Beaty said, Citrus residents have more nearby choices now, with Oak Hill Hospital in Spring Hill opening a heart unit, and Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center doing catheterizations. Agreed, health care consumers do have more choice now. But how much has the hospitals continuing governance warfare contributed to unfairly eroding citizen confidence in Citrus Memorial? Management struggles contribute to the hospitals overall image, and it hasnt been good. Potential patients weigh that in choosing a health care facility. Its all about perception, and CMH has lost its mojo in the community. We look forward to the turnaround we hope is coming with new management, and to feeling good about our community hospital again.

I was there Saturday (Feb. 1) at 5 p.m. There were no manatee watchers there. No one to supervise. There were people chasing manatees, encouraging their children to chase manatee babies. And a couple showed up in a canoe; they got out of the canoe, tied up to a tree and theyre clambering around on the shore there, you know, disturbing the soil and the vegetation. And as I left Three Sisters, a group of eight teenagers or, well, young men came in with snorkel gear and a cooler of beer and there was no one to supervise. So this needs to change.

Jimmie Smiths job.More money wastedHere we go again. Citrus County Commission votes to spend $50,000 to hire a lobbyist. OK, raise our taxes because they dont have enough money to function, but yet they have $50,000 to hire a lobbyist. This is ridiculous, OK? Then another $50,000 for a boat race. Its appalling. Raise our taxes though we dont have enough money to provide services, but, you know, we can hire a lobbyist and go have boat races. Editors note: To be fair, the boat race funds come from the tourist tax, not property taxes.Cruel jokeI see the commissioners are at it again; $50,000 for a lobbyist to tell people that Citrus County exists. Who gives them the right to waste our money like that? Oh, previously we had a lobbyist for the Port of Citrus. Well, gosh, I guess I should take my boat up there and enjoy some of the amenities. Another cruel joke on the back of the taxpayers. And our new Tourism Development Council ... $50,000 more for a boat race in Hernando. What about boat ramps? What about parking? What about using that money for the citizens of Citrus County? Theres no benefit from this. Just another waste of tax dollars. The TDC needs to be done away with.

I applaud those who sponsored this as there is such a surplus of animals in this county and certainly elsewhere that need our help. At the same time elsewhere in the county, vendors were selling dogs to anyone with money, with no concern for measuring the responsibility of the new buyer. The total sadness I felt passing by these small cages with so many dogs and puppies was, and will continue to be huge. Yes, I recognize these vendors need income during these difficult times but their small financial gain is certainly not worth the potential unfortunate circumstances for so many. These vendors defend their practice as being legal when challenged. It may be that but certainly not ethical or with sufficient concern for the future welfare of the animals they are creating. With these two events ironically going on simultaneously, one can easily see the very unfortunate and endless circle of producing and managing this overpopulation. On the one hand we have pet owners irresponsible about spaying and neutering their pets, unable to give adequate care, feeding and vetting of their animals due to either a lack of compassion or willing financial sacrifice, a growing trend in this economy with misplaced priorities. So many homeless pets are unnecessarily euthanized annually. Until we can bring things under control, all puppy mills should be made illegal or certainly better controlled. I wonder how many of these dogs have wound up at the Inverness adoption promotions or put down, a possibility certainly so sad and heartbreaking to animal lovers. These creatures are so dependent on our caring and compassion and absolutely helpless to control their destiny. One way to control this immoral business is simply not purchase pets from this source. With no demand, these folks would have to obtain their revenue elsewhere and not at the expense of creating this overpopulation. Pets that are saved and placed into loving homes through these adoption efforts provide a greater response of love and devotion than those of badly managed breeding. Animals somehow know they have been rescued and give back tenfold. That is an absolute fact as given testimony by so many pet owners (including me) that have done so. Please join me in supporting this vital effort to bring some sensibility and realization to this important issue on behalf of so many defenseless and beautiful animals needing so much. Its time we all wake up and stop ignoring our humane responsibility.Robert W. Peacock Hernando Letter to THE EDITOR

Bergdahls family keeps optimisticBOISE, Idaho The parents of the only known U.S. prisoner of war said they are cautiously optimistic about reported renewed efforts to win his freedom. U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was captured more than four years ago in Afghanistan and is believed to be held in Pakistan. The Washington Post reported Monday that the Obama administration is seeking to resume talks with the Taliban in hopes of exchanging Bergdahl for imprisoned members of the group. In a statement Tuesday, the Idaho soldiers parents said they welcome the development. Bob and Jani Bergdahl said they hope all sides take this opportunity seriously.Authorities look into turbulence BILLINGS, Mont. Federal authorities are looking into severe turbulence that triggered pandemonium aboard a United Airlines flight into Billings, Mont., and sent five people to hospitals with injuries. Passenger Ejay Old Bull of Billings said drinks had just been served and passengers were moving around the cabin when flight 1676 began to lurch violently about 55 minutes after it left Denver. Old Bull said he watched the unrestrained woman next to him crash into the luggage bin overhead and briefly lose consciousness, while a crew member got bounced around in the galley just behind his seat.Idaho gov orders CCA inquiryBOISE, Idaho Idaho Gov. C.L. Butch Otter has ordered the state police to conduct a criminal investigation of understaffing and falsified documents at a private prison operated by Corrections Corporation of America. The governor made the decision a reversal of his previous stance on Tuesday after meeting with Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden. Otter wrote in a letter to Idaho State Police Col. Ralph Powell that, after reviewing the available information, including an audit completed by the forensic auditing firm KPMG, he now believed the public would benefit from a formal criminal investigation. CCA spokesman Steve Owen had previously said the company has serious concerns with the KPMG audit.

Venezuela oppn leader arrested CARACAS, Venezuela Opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez was arrested Tuesday after emerging from days of hiding and making an impassioned speech to thousands of supporters, saying he hoped his detention will open Venezuelans eyes to the increasingly authoritarian bent of their government. Speaking with a megaphone to more than 5,000 people, Lopez said he doesnt fear going to jail to defend his beliefs and constitutional right to peacefully protest against President Nicolas Maduro. Weve got nothing to hide, Lopez told a sea of supporters who, like him, were dressed in white to symbolize non-violence. He said it is worth going to jail if it awakens Venezuela to the corrupt justice and economic disaster left by 15 years of socialist rule. Lopez was being sought by authorities on an arrest order for allegedly inciting violence that broke out during protests last week in which three people were killed. He faces charges including homicide and vandalism of public property. Maduro accuses Lopez of leading a fascist plot to overthrow him.Argentina to US: stop catastropheBUENOS AIRES, Argentina Argentina has filed its long-shot appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, seeking to avoid being forced to pay billions in cash to investors who didnt accept bond swaps in exchange for defaulted debt. Argentinas lawyers said the justices can avert economic catastrophe by overturning the New York courts, which they said made serious legal errors that could harm U.S. interests and destabilize the global economy. The appeal filed Tuesday said the lower court ruling threatens to make it much more difficult if not impossible for nations in crisis to restructure their debts. Argentinas lawyers said the country would lose half its remaining central bank reserves if forced to pay bond holdouts immediately in cash.New Czech govt wins votePRAGUE The Czech Republics new coalition government has won a mandatory parliamentary confidence vote.

World BRIEFS From wire reports Death in Ukraine Associated PressMonuments to Kiev's founders burn as anti-government protesters clash with riot police Tuesday in Kievs Independence Square, the epicenter of the countrys current unrest, in Kiev, Ukraine, after at least 18 people were killed in street clashes. Thousands of police armed with stun grenades and water cannons attacked the large opposition camp in Ukraines capital on Tuesday that has been the center of nearly three months of anti-government protests. Riot police move in against Kiev protest camp; deaths rise Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Amid cries of Glory to Ukraine! and with flaming tires lighting up the night sky, thousands of riot police armed with stun grenades and water cannons attacked the sprawling protest camp in the center of Kiev on Tuesday, following a day of street battles that left 18 people dead and hundreds injured. The violence was the deadliest in nearly three months of antigovernment protests that have paralyzed Ukraines capital in a struggle over the nations identity, and the worst in the countrys post-Soviet history With the boom of exploding stun grenades and fireworks nearly drowning out his words at times, opposition leader Vitali Klitschko urged the 20,000 protesters to defend the camp on Independence Square that has been the heart of the protests. We will not go anywhere from here, Klitschko told the crowd, speaking from a stage in the square as tents and tires burned around him, releasing huge plumes of smoke. This is an island of freedom and we will defend it, he said. Many heeded his call. This looks like a war against ones own people, said Dmytro Shulko, 35, who was heading toward the camp armed with a fire bomb. But we will defend ourselves. As police dismantled some of the barricades on the perimeter of the square and tried to push away the protesters, they fought back with rocks, bats and fire bombs. Against the backdrop of a soaring monument to Ukraines independence, protesters fed the burning flames with tires, creating walls of fire to prevent police from advancing. A large building the protesters had used as a headquarters caught fire and many struggled to get out. Many of the protesters were bleeding. Speaking over loudspeakers, police urged women and children to leave the square because an anti-terrorist operation was under way. The protesters appeared to sense that Ukraines political standoff was reaching a critical turning point. Waving Ukrainian and opposition party flags, they shouted Glory to Ukraine! and sang the Ukrainian national anthem. Shortly before midnight, Klitschko headed to President Viktor Yanukovychs office to try to resolve the crisis, his spokeswoman said. An hour later, he was still waiting to be received. Earlier in the day, protesters attacked police lines and set fires outside parliament, accusing Yanukovych of once again ignoring their demands and dragging his feet on a constitutional reform to limit presidential powers. Tensions had soared after Russia said Monday that it was ready to resume providing the loans that Yanukovychs government needs to keep Ukraines ailing economy afloat. This raised fears among the opposition that Yanukovych had made a deal with Moscow to stand firm against the protesters and would choose a Russian-leaning loyalist to be his new prime minister. The protests began in late November after Yanukovych turned away from a long-anticipated deal with the European Union in exchange for a $15 billion bailout from Russia. The political maneuvering continued, however, with both Moscow and the West eager to gain influence over this former Soviet republic. Until Monday, the government and the opposition had appeared to be making some progress toward resolving the political crisis peacefully. In exchange for the release of scores of jailed activists, protesters on Sunday vacated a government building that they had occupied since Dec. 1. Leopoldo Lopez leader of opposition. Shortage of execution drugs now more acute Associated PressST. LOUIS The nations shortage of execution drugs is becoming increasingly acute as more compounding pharmacies conclude that supplying the lethal chemicals is not worth the bad publicity and the legal and ethical risks. The scarcity of drugs for lethal injections has forced states to scramble for substitutes. And experts say that whatever alternatives are found will almost certainly face costly court challenges made more complicated by laws that cloak the process in secrecy. On Monday, the Tulsa, Okla.-based compounding pharmacy the Apothecary Shoppe agreed to stop selling pentobarbital to the Missouri Department of Corrections after the pharmacy was named in a lawsuit filed by death row inmate Michael Taylor alleging that the drug could cause inhumane pain. Missouri previously paid $8,000 in cash for each dose of the drug. The settlement will probably mean changing delicate execution procedures just a week before Taylor is scheduled to die for raping and killing a 15-yearold Kansas City girl in 1989. Gov. Jay Nixon said Tuesday that Missouri is prepared to carry out the Feb.26 execution, but declined to elaborate. Missouri, like many states, is reluctant to divulge much information about how, or where, it obtains lethal injection drugs, citing the privacy rights of the supplier. Lethal injection has faced increasing scrutiny during the past decade. Major drug makers, many of them based in Europe with longtime opposition to the death penalty, have stopped selling to prisons and corrections departments. The source of the drugs is moving to the forefront of the death penalty debate. Online MD reviews: Cars, movie sites more popular Associated PressCHICAGO Doctor ratings are less popular than those of toasters, cars and movies when it comes to online consumer sites. Thats according to a survey that found most adults hadnt checked online physician reviews and most said a conveniently located office and accepting patients health insurance was more important. Still, the sites do appear to be swaying opinions. About a third of patients who viewed online sites sought out or avoided phys icians based on ratings. The findings come from a nationally representative Internet-based survey of 2,137 adults. Results were published online Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The 2012 survey may overestimate awareness among the general population, since about 1 in 5 Americans dont have Internet access. But the researchers attempted to compensate for that by providing free Internetconnected computers for consumers without access. The results suggest that online doctor ratings have gained popularity since earlier surveys. Thats a concern, since theres no way to know if a review is real or fake, or what might have motivated the reviewer, said lead author Dr. David Hanauer, a pediatrician and associate professor at the University of Michigan. More than one-third of those surveyed had checked out online reviews for movies, restaurants, appliances or electronics, and more than 1 in 4 viewed online car ratings. But less than 1 in 5 said they had viewed online physician ratings. Consumer reviews of doctors can be found on dozens of online sites, including some that only rate doctors and others like yelp.com that cover a panoply of goods and services. Most reviewers dont include their full names or remain anonymous. Some doctors who oppose the idea make their patients sign gag orders agreeing not to post comments about them online. Hanauer said he doesnt do that. He added that he hasnt found any reviews of himself online.

A Sam Franklin buzzerbeating bucket from around the free throw line sent the game to overtime, where four different Rams scored in the final minute to lift themselves to a 76-72 victory in the Region 2-5A basketball semifinals. EHS (23-6) advances to the regional finals for a meeting at home Saturday with Nature Coast, which defeated the Rams in the regional finals in 2012. For Citrus, its still one of the best seasons on record for the program, as the team finishes 26-3. During the extra period, the Hurricanes had to go without senior Devin Pryor, one of the top players in the region and the games leading scorer at 26 points, after he fouled out on offense with 23 seconds remaining in regulation. The game was tied after every quarter except the second, when a put-back by senior Javian Clark, who left the game with 2:23 remaining in overtime after suffering an injury on a rebound, gave his Canes at 34-33 halftime advantage. Neither team led by more than four points all game. You could sort of tell from the start it was going to be a back-and-forth night, CHS Coach Tom Densmore said. Trying to be the team to be ahead when the buzzer sounded was made a little more difficult without Devin (Pryor). But we really held our own even in overtime until right at the end. A half-court steal and layup by junior Desmond Franklin (23 points, seven steals) put Citrus ahead 70-69 with 1:15 remaining. But a layup in traffic by EHS junior Darius Norman (17 points), followed by a looseball foul and technical by CHS senior Ben Janicki, who was ejected for cursing while protesting the initial call, put the Canes down by two and back on their heels, as the Rams retained possession following the free throws. An Eastside runner by Khalil Banton and a layup off a steal by Thomas Lundy followed moments later, essentially clinching matters. Citrus had trouble in the first half with the big body of 6-4 senior Barry Johnson, who ended the first half with 15 points, in spite of struggling at the foul line with 2 of 9 shooting. Johnson finished with 13 boards, but only added three more points in the second half. We couldnt let (Johnson) continue to be kind of loose in there, Densmore said. He used his body really well to position himself, and was very tough to defend. The Canes had 17 steals, which led to a pair of runaway dunks by Desmond Franklin and one by Sam Franklin (12 points, four blocks, four steals, seven rebounds), but werent as effective on the boards, where they were out-rebounded 23-10 in the second half. They did well Olympic day of politics and power on the slopes Associated PressSOCHI, Russia The politics got a little hotter. The slopes got a lot slushier. On a day when the mountain courses seemed better suited for the crawl or butterfly but posed no obstacle to Tina Maze, the Sochi Olympics took a more overt political turn. Two members of the punk group Pussy Riot Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina were among nine people detained Tuesday while walking in downtown Sochi. All were later released and no charges were filed. The two group members burst from the police station wearing trademark ski masks one pink, one blue. Police said they were questioned about a theft at the hotel where they were staying. Pussy Riot has become an international flashpoint for those who contend Vladimir Putins government has exceeded its authority in dealing with an array of issues, notably human and gay rights. We are constantly surrounded by people ... who are shadowing us, following our every move and looking for any excuse to detain us, Tolokonnikova said after her release.

When the three-time All-Star third baseman arrived at spring training this week, one of his first orders of business was to approach executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman to congratulate him on an offseason of maneuvering that kept much of last years roster intact while also making some important additions. Decisions to retain pitching ace David Price and outfielder David DeJesus, sign closer Grant Balfour, re-sign first baseman James Loney, trade for catcher Ryan Hanigan and pick up options on infielders Ben Zobrist and Yunel Escobar bolstered Longorias confidence in what the Rays could be capable of achieving in 2014. From the outside looking in, he did probably one of his finest jobs with this team with the acquisitions that weve made and the people we were able to keep around, Longoria said. Loney signed a $21 million, threeyear contract the biggest deal the Rays have given a free agent since principal owner Stuart Sternberg took control of the team after the 2005 season. Price, wholl earn $14 million this year, remains on the roster after being the subject of trade talk this winter. Balfour received a $12 million, two-year last month, hiking the budget-conscious franchises payroll to around $80 million. I thought being able to sign Loney to a multi-year deal, and keep not only his bat and glove, but his personality and what he brings to the clubhouse around, was a huge deal something I thought was a huge step in the right direction for the organization, Longoria said, noting it not only shows Tampa Bay See LONGORIA/ Page B3 Evan Longoria Reaching great heights in Lecanto MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleHayley Clark of Crystal River attempts to clear the bar during the pole vault competition Tuesday at Lecanto High School.

At the Olympic Park, the Russian hockey team looked plenty vulnerable in its opening hockey game in the elimination round, defeating Norway 4-0 in a game that despite the scoreline was anything but a rout. No questions, however, about the Dutch speedskaters. Jorrit Bergsma won the mens 10,000 meters to lead another sweep of the medals for the Netherlands. Seven gold medals were on offer on Day 12 and among the winners were Emil Hegle Svendsen of Norway in biathlon, Pierre Vaultier of France in snowboardcross, South Korea in short track relay and Joergen Graabak of Norway in Nordic combined.SkiingNeither rain nor snow could keep Maze from her appointed rounds. The Slovenian skier captured her second gold medal of these games by winning the giant slalom. Maze was in full command, leading all the way and finishing 0.07 seconds ahead of Anna Fenninger of Austria. Defending champion Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany was the bronze medalist and teen sensation Mikaela Shiffrin of the U.S. was fifth in her Olympic debut. Last week, Maze tied for the gold medal in the downhill in glorious sunshine. On Tuesday, the sun seemed lost in the hills. Maze marked the moment in the spirit of Michael Phelps, simulating a breaststroke in the icy slop. We are all wet, so I said, Why not? Maze said. Its been a great day for me.HockeyRussia is playing under immense pressure in Sochi. It did not look strong in the preliminary round, and that was the case against Norway, which hasnt won an Olympic hockey game since its home Lillehammer Games in 1994. The game was scoreless after one period and 2-0 after two. Russia got two goals from Alexander Radulov and advanced to the quarterfinals against Finland on Wednesday. Latvia, the Czech Republic and Slovenia also advanced to the quarterfinals.SpeedskatingThe podium has become a second home for the Dutch, with the walls painted orange. Bergsma set an Olympic record with his time of 12 minutes, 44.45 seconds. He was followed by Sven Kramer and Bob de Jong, sending the Dutch to their fourth podium sweep at this venue and giving them a total of 19 speedskating medals. Kramer had to settle for silver after botching certain victory in this race in Vancouver four years ago with a baffling mistake in a lane change.BiathlonSvendsen edged Martin Fourcade of France to win gold in the mens 15-kilometer mass start biathlon. They both finished in 42 minutes, 29.1 seconds, with Svendsens ski crossing the line a fraction ahead. This was Svendsens fourth career Olympic medal but first in Sochi. Ondrej Moravec of Czech Republic won bronze for his second medal of the games.SnowboardVaultier held off Nikolay Olyunin of Russia to win the gold medal in mens snowboardcross on a choppedup course slowed by drizzle. Alex Deibold of the U.S., a wax technician for the Americans in Vancouver four years ago, took the bronze. Italys Omar Visintin was removed by a stretcher after crashing in the semifinals. The event was pushed back a day because of heavy fog.Short trackSouth Korea won the 3,000-meter relay, passing China on the last lap to take the lead. Four years ago in Vancouver, the South Koreans finished first, but were disqualified and China got the gold. Italy took the bronze, giving Arianna Fontana her third medal in Sochi.Nordic combinedNorway delivered a onetwo finish in the Nordic combined large hill. Graabak broke away from a five-man group with about 100 meters left in the crosscountry race, finishing sixtenths of a second ahead of Magnus Moan. Fabian Riessle of Germany won the bronze.Freestyle skiingSkiing through sleet and snow, David Wise ended up with gold in mens ski halfpipe. The American scored a 92 on his first run, which held up as the weather worsened. Mike Riddle won silver for Canada, and Kevin Rolland took bronze for France.BobsledLauryn Williams and Elana Meyers in USA-1 lead at the halfway point of the bobsled. Williams, a twotime medalist in track at the Summer Games, and Meyers made two trips down the Sanki Sliding Center track in 1 minute, 54.89 seconds to open a 0.23-second lead over Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse.

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE is committed to winning now but in the future as well. I congratulated Andrew, Longoria added. Im really happy the way things look right now and excited to see how they shape up come the end of spring training. The 28-year-old face of the franchise also is feeling more pressure to lead the Rays back to the World Series, where they lost to Philadelphia in five games in 2008. Longoria hit .269 with 32 homers and 88 RBIs in a career-best 160 games last season, the first under the $100 million, 10-year contract he signed last winter. It seems like every year it gets a little tougher, believe it or not. Not physically, and not from a performance standpoint, but because I do feel a little more weight every year because Im more of a veteran, Longoria said. Not that hes complaining. Its never bad. Its just I feel like every year I have a little bit more responsibility to do certain things, to kind of weigh in on things that I wouldnt have in the past, he added. Its not that I dont have peace of mind, I just feel a little bit more responsible every year. In addition to helping the Rays earn an AL wild card berth, one of the things Longoria found most satisfying about 2013 was remaining healthy enough the stay in the lineup for an entire season after undergoing surgery on his left hamstring the previous winter. Id really just like to do it again. Last year was a really fun year. Personally, like Ive said again and again, if I can be on the field, I feel like I can have an impact whether its from a production standpoint or just whatever I can bring from a leadership or a personal standpoint, Longoria said. Of course, there are things Id love to accomplish, he added. Id like to hit for a higher batting average. But in reality, I just want to hit for a better batting average when there are runners on base, when theres a chance to a hit to directly impact the game. Manager Joe Maddon has a deep appreciation for Longorias leadership qualities, as well as the influence the player has in the clubhouse as well as on the field. Youre never managed out of a crisis. Youre always led out of one. ... There are a lot of guys who shy away from that. Theres some people who dont want any part of that, Maddon said. But he definitely understands his place in the game, and with us.

Seth Brown kind of took a little pressure off Barry (Johnson), EHS head coach Herman Wiliams said. I was excited for Banton giving us some key minutes. Darius and Lundy did a great job keeping us in it by hitting the baseline, because thats what Citrus was giving us. Densmore put the season in perspective for his team after the loss. I told them that losing this game is disappointing, he said, but no one should feel disappointed in their effort or the way they played. I told them that when they look back at this season as a whole, and look at a 26-3 record, theyll see they exceeded expectations. We purposely beefed up the schedule, wanting to play tougher competition, and we went out and beat them all. CITRUSContinued from Page B1

This tournament offers the unique opportunity to compete in singles. Another distinction it has, compared to most other tournaments, is the number of divisions players can choose from: 17 to be exact. Mens and Womens; A, B, C and Juniors singles; Mens, Womens and Mixed; A, B, C and Juniors doubles. If you have ever been involved with the organization of a tournament, you know that this number of divisions can be a nightmare to pull off in one weekend. That is the reason why players should consider not playing in more than two events. If you prefer to play singles, one division is probably plenty. The entry fee is $20 for one event, $10 for the second event. The organizers will also accept donations of gently used clothing and/or canned food for the Family Resource Center.

Third-ranked Henrik Stenson is the top seed in the Match Play Championship with No. 1 Tiger Woods and No. 2 Adam Scott skipping the tournament. Stenson will open today against Thailands Kiradech Aphibarnrat at The Ritz-Carlton at Dove Mountain. The No. 64 seed has beaten the No. 1 seed four times in the 14-year history of the event, including last year when Shane Lowry edged Rory McIlroy. It doesnt really matter if youre the No. 1 seed or if youre No. 50, Stenson said. Its going to be down to how you play and how you can get things working. The Swede won the World Golf Championships event in 2007 and was third in 2008, both down the road at The Gallery. I had two great years and then we changed courses, Stenson said. The record hasnt quite been the same since. ... Weve been going home Wednesday afternoon every year since. I played poorly, once I was sick, and just havent got it going on this golf course. Last year, Stenson became the first player to sweep the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai. Playing through a right wrist injury, he won the Deutsche Bank Championship and Tour Championship in the FedEx Cup playoffs and took the European Tours season-ending World Tour Championship in Dubai. Hes making his first U.S. start of the year after playing three European Tour events in the Middle East, the last early this month in Dubai.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Using videos that claim to teach toddlers, or flash cards for tots, may not be the best idea. Simply talking to babies is key to building crucial language and vocabulary skills but sooner is better, and long sentences are good. So says research that aims to explain, and help solve, the troubling word gap: Children from more affluent, professional families hear millions more words before they start school than poor kids, leaving the lower-income students at an academic disadvantage thats difficult to overcome. That gap starts to appear at a younger age than scientists once thought, around 18 months, said Stanford University psychology professor Anne Fernald. And research being presented this week at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science suggests that its not just hearing lists of words that matters as much as rich, varied language with good grammar that trains babies brains to learn through context. Instead of just saying, Heres an orange, it would be better to say: Lets put the orange in this bowl with the banana and the apple and the grapes. Its making nets of meaning that then will help the child learn new words, Fernald explained. The advice I give mothers is to have conversations with your babies, added Erika Hoff, a psychology professor at Florida Atlantic University. Children can hear lots of talk that goes over their head in terms of the meaning, and they still benefit from it. The research comes amid a growing push for universal preschool, to help disadvantaged youngsters catch up. But it also raises the question of whether children from low-income, less educated families need earlier intervention, such as preschool that starts at age 3 instead of 4, or higher quality day care or even some sort of Lets talk campaign aimed at new parents to stress talking, singing and reading with tots even before they can respond. That can be difficult for parents working multiple jobs, or who may not read well or who simply dont know why its important. Scientists have long known that before they start kindergarten, children from middleclass or affluent families have heard millions more words than youngsters from lowincome families, leaving the poorer children with smaller vocabularies and less ready to succeed academically. Fernald said by some measures, 5-yearolds from low-income families can lag two years behind their peers in tests of language development. Brain scans support the link, said Dr. Kimberly Noble of Columbia University Medical Center. Early experiences shape the connections that childrens brains form, and kids from higher socio-economic backgrounds devote more neural real estate to brain regions involved in language development, she found. How early does the word gap appear? Around age 18 months, Stanfords Fernald discovered when she compared how children mentally process the language they hear. Lower-income kids in her study achieved at age 2 the level of proficiency that more affluent kids had reached six months earlier. To understand why language processing is so important, consider this sentence: The kittys on the bench. If the youngster knows the word kitty, and his brain recognizes it quickly enough, then he can figure out what bench means by the context. But if hes slow to recognize kitty, then bench flies by before he has a chance to learn it. Next, Fernald tucked recorders into T-shirts of lowincome toddlers in Spanishspeaking households to determine what they heard all day and found remarkable differences in whats called child-directed speech. Thats when children are spoken to directly, in contrast to television or conversations they overhear. One child heard more than 12,000 words of child-directed speech in a day, while another heard a mere 670 words, she found. The youngsters who received more child-directed speech processed language more efficiently and learned words more quickly, she reported. But its not just quantity of speech that matters its quality, Hoff cautioned. She studied bilingual families and found that whatever the language, children fare better when they learn it from a native speaker. In other words, if Mom and Dad speak Spanish but arent fluent in English, its better for the child to have a solid grounding in Spanish at home and then learn English later in school. Next, scientists are testing whether programs that teach parents better ways to talk to tots really do any good. Fernald said preliminary results from one of the first a program called Habla Conmigo, Spanish for Talk With Me, that enrolls low-income, Spanish-speaking mothers in San Jose, Calif. are promising. Fernald analyzed the first 32 families of the 120 the program will enroll. Mothers who underwent the eight-week training are talking more with their toddlers, using higher-quality language, than a control group of parents and by their second birthday, the children have bigger vocabularies and process language faster, she said Thursday.

Research: Talking to babies helps their brains Tips for talking to babies, toddlersResearch shows that both how much and how well parents talk to babies and toddlers influence development of language and vocabulary skills crucial to later school achievement. Here are some tips: The sooner you start talking with babies, the better. Their brains are absorbing vital information well before theyre able to respond. The high-pitched, sing-song tone that many people take with babies does get their attention. But dont dumb it down: Use rich, varied language and longer sentences, said Erika Hoff of Florida Atlantic University. Dont just label things, make connections. The dog is wagging his tail isnt as effective as, Look how fluffy that dogs tail is. Its much fatter than the cats skinny tail. What matters most is speech directed to babies and toddlers, not what they overhear, said Anne Fernald of Stanford University. Turn off the TV. Television does not help the brain learn language, said Dr. Kimberly Noble of ColumbiaUniversity Medical Center. Babiesand toddlers especially require personal interaction to learn. Reading a book for 10 minutes a day adds up fast, Fernald noted. If Mom or Dad isnt a good reader, just talk about the pictures. Fit conversation into everyday activities. Instead of turning on music while fixing lunch, talk about the bowl of fruit on the table. Associated PressSALT LAKE CITY A mother upset about indecent T-shirts on display at a Utah mall found a quick if not especially convenient way to remove them: She bought every last one. Judy Cox and her 18-year-old son were shopping Saturday at the University Mall in Orem, about 40 miles south of Salt Lake City, when she saw the shirts in the window of a PacSun store. The shirts featured pictures of scantily dressed models in provocative poses. Cox said she complained about the window display to a store manager and was told the T-shirts couldnt be taken down without approval from the corporate office. She then bought all 19 T-shirts in stock, for a total of $567. She says she plans to return them later, toward the end of the chain stores 60-day return period. The shirts cost about $28 each on the website for PacSun, which sells beach clothes for teenagers and young adults. These shirts clearly cross a boundary that is continually being pushed on our children in images on the Internet, television and when our families shop in the mall, Cox said in an email to The Associated Press. She said she plans to meet with Orems city attorney Tuesday to discuss whether the images on the T-shirts violate city code. Utah mom finds fast fix for indecent shirts

In Denali National Park in Alaska, sled dogs and their ranger partners patrol about 2 million acres of wilderness. When temperatures drop to 45 degrees below zero and high winds and blowing snow make it impossible to see, sled dogs are often the only way to get around. The Mini Page talked with a ranger from Denali National Park and Preserve to find out more about these daring dogs.Denali and dogs In the winter of 1907-1908, wilderness guide Harry Karstens led a naturalist, or an expert on animals and plants, through an area of Alaska. Harry knew how to survive outdoors in the frozen wilderness. He also knew that the best way to get around in this cold, wild land was on a sled pulled by dogs. Harry and the naturalist traveled by sled team. The naturalist thought it was important to protect the animals and their habitat. He helped convince Congress to preserve the land as a national park. The first ranger was the naturalists guide, Harry Karstens. He set up the sled-dog program to help rangers care for the park.Husky history For hundreds of years, Alaskan natives bred dogs that did well in cold weather and were strong enough to pull sleds. These dogs are Alaskan huskies, or sled dogs. Horses dont do well in the Alaskan wilderness. The best way to travel is by sled team. In pioneer days, mail was delivered by sled dogs. In the early days of the park, rangers and dogs would be in the wilderness for months at a time. They sheltered in tents and blankets or in whatever they could find on the spot. Sled dogs hauled logs and supplies through the park so rangers could build cabins to shelter workers, rangers and dogs.Park Pooches on PatrolSled Dogs of Denali photo by Jacob W. Frank, courtesy NPSDenali National Park and Preserve is the only national park that uses sled teams to patrol the park. There are usually about 35 huskies in the Denali kennels. This allows three dog teams to patrol at a time. photo by Daniel A. Leifheit, courtesy NPSA husky has long legs and loves to run. Its large paws help it balance on the snow. It has a thick, warm coat made up of two layers of fur. An adult weighs about 60 to 80 pounds. A husky is powerful and muscular. If it were as big as an ox, it would be stronger than the ox.Ready Resources from The Mini Page 2014 Universal Uclick The Mini Page provides ideas for websites, books or other resources that will help you learn more about this weeks topics. On the Web: At the library: by Natalie Standiford from The Mini Page 2014 Universal UclickWorking dogs No motorized vehicles are allowed in the 2 million acres of wilderness in Denali except for emergencies or special projects. Sled teams are the only way to transport supplies or break trails for the public. Traveling by dogsled is called mushing. A sled-dog patrol might last anywhere from a day to six weeks. Sled teams haul supplies to the cabins. Rangers collect data for scientists and transport researchers and workers such as firefighters.Winter travel In Denali, the easiest time to patrol is the winter. Traveling over hard frozen ground is easier than traveling over sticky, muddy ground. When rivers freeze, they become highways that dogs and rangers can walk over. Rivers, marshes and lakes can be cold and dangerous in warmer weather, when ice begins to melt. Dogs dont patrol in the summer. Instead, they pull sleds on wheels to demonstrate mushing. In winter, cold and storms can be a hazard. Deep snow can make travel winter conditions. If dogs and people are not near a cabin, rangers set up a tent.A Dogs LifeSled team helpers People who go into the backcountry in the winter are usually experienced and dont need rescue. If there were an accident, it would be faster to send a helicopter than a dog team. Dog teams help in other ways. For example, once a dog team mushed to a plane crash site to transport inspectors and rangers to clean up the oil. photo by Jacob W. Frank, courtesy NPSA sled-dog team usually has seven to 10 dogs. The numbers change depending on how much weight is on the sled. The sled, gear and musher could weigh a total of about 300 pounds or more. photo courtesy NPSWorkers often get close to the dogs and adopt them when the dogs retire. photo by Jacob W.

If sleds do break through the ice, dogs are trained to run through the water, pulling the sled onto the bank. If a snowmobile falls through the ice, it just sits there. When dogs get wet, the best way for them to dry off is to roll in the snow. The air is very cold and dry that far north. The snow is so dry that it actually pulls water from the fur. team needs to get to shelter. If ice gets under its bottom coat of fur, the dog could have trouble warming up. It is dangerous for people to be soaked and cold, too. Rangers always carry emergency parkas and an extra set of clothes in a waterproof bag. If people get wet, they need to get out of their wet clothes right away and start a fire to warm up.Puppy training Huskies have a lot of energy. Rangers teach them to harness that energy by pulling the sleds. They put puppies into a little harness and attach it to a person on skis. An adult dog walks ahead, so the puppies pull the harness to get to the adult dog. They learn to pull. to keep up, they are harnessed to the rest of a team for a couple of miles. Young puppies tire easily, and they lose interest quickly, so they dont actually work with a team until they are at least 2 years old.Fur PowerSuper senses Dogs can feel and smell the trails even if people cant find them.

EDUCATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY19, 2014 C5 Associated PressWASHINGTON The earnings gap between young adults with and without bachelors degrees has stretched to its widest level in nearly half a century. Its a sign of the growing value of a college education despite rising tuition costs, according to an analysis of census data released Tuesday. Young adults with just a high-school diploma earned 62 percent of the typical salary of college graduates. Thats down from 81 percent in 1965, the earliest year for which comparable data are available. The analysis by the Pew Research Center shows the increasing economic difficulties for young adults who lack a bachelors degree in todays economy thats polarized between highand low-wage work. As a whole, high-school graduates were more likely to live in poverty and be dissatisfied with their jobs, if not unemployed. In contrast, roughly nine in 10 college graduates ages 25 to 32 said that their bachelors degree had paid off or will pay off in the future, according to Pews separate polling conducted last year. Even among the two-thirds of young adults who borrowed money for college, about 86 percent said their degrees have been, or will be, worth it. In todays knowledgebased economy, the only thing more expensive than getting a college education is not getting one, said Paul Taylor, Pews executive vice president and co-author of the report. Young adults see significant economic gains from getting a college degree regardless of the level of student debt they have taken on. The latest findings come amid rising college tuition costs, which have saddled young adults in the so-called Millennial generation with heavy debt amid high unemployment. Noting the increasing importance of a college education, President Barack Obama and Republicans such as Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida have pushed proposals to make higher education more affordable as a way to promote upward mobility and bolster Americas shrinking middle class. The report found that not only does a college degree typically yield much more inflation-adjusted earnings than before, but a high-school diploma also is now worth less. That adds to a widening earnings gap that Pew researchers found mirrors the U.S. gap between rich and poor. For instance, college graduates ages 25 to 32 who were working full time now typically earn about $17,500 more annually than employed young adults with just a high school diploma ($45,500 vs. $28,000); those with a two-year degree or some college training earned $30,000. In 1965, before globalization and automation wiped out many middleclass jobs in areas such as manufacturing, the inflation-adjusted gap was just $7,449. Meanwhile, median earnings for high-school graduates have fallen more than $3,000, from $31,384 in 1965 to $28,000 last year. Young adults with just high-school diplomas now are also much more likely to live in poverty, at 22 percent compared to 7 percent for their counterparts in 1979. Despite their higher levels of college completion, todays young adults overall are doing no better and on many key indicators of economic well-being, theyre doing worse than older generations were doing when they were the same age that Millennials are now, Taylor said. This is mainly because the economic penalties for not getting a college degree are so much stiffer now than in the past. Other findings:Young employed college graduates are more likely than those with just a high school diploma or less to say their job is a career or stepping stone to a career. In contrast, those with just a high school diploma or less were three times more likely than college graduates to say their work is just a job to help them get by 42 percent vs. 14 percent.The field of study in college does seem to matter. Those who studied science or engineering were most likely to say that their current job is very closely related to their college or graduate field of study, at 60 percent, compared to 43 percent for both liberal arts and business majors.About three-fourths of all college graduates say they regretted not doing more during school to better prepare themselves to find a job, such as getting more work experience, studying harder or looking for work sooner. Pew based its findings on the Census Bureaus Current Population Survey as of March 2013, as well as its own survey of 2,002 adults interviewed by cellphone or landline from Oct. 7-27, 2013. The Pew poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.

C8WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY19, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Joseph-Marie de Maistre, a French philosopher, writer, lawyer and diplomat who died in 1821, said, It is one of mans curious idiosyncrasies to create difficulties for the pleasure of resolving them. At the bridge table, we create deals, either by hand or with a computer program, and then enjoy trying to solve them. Most can be handled correctly if our analysis is accurate. But occasionally a layout will arise that requires doing something so abnormal that it is easy to overlook. Cover the West and South hands. West leads the heart eight against four spades. After East takes dummys 10 with his queen, what should he do next? If West had opened one heart, North would have overcalled one no-trump. But in the balancing position (a pass by North would have ended the auction), one no-trump would have shown only 11-15 points. Then, after South advanced with one spade, indicating 0-8 points, Norths raise to two spades promised 17-19 points. East has three defensive tricks: his aces and the heart queen. If the heart king will automatically score later, East can cash those aces and exit with a diamond. Here, though, that does not work. East should realize that West has led a singleton or high from a doubleton. (West would have led low from a tripleton because he had not supported hearts.) Then, if East makes the weird-looking lead of a heart at trick two, he will defeat the contract. Here, South wins in the dummy and plays a trump, but East takes the trick, cashes the diamond ace, and gives West a heart ruff for down one.

He coaches my lacrosse team and is always up for a game in the yard. But I am growing very nervous about his health. Dad eats fast food every day at work and comes home to enjoy a homecooked meal topped with a large amount of salt. He then sits in front of the TV with a huge bowl of buttered popcorn and a beer. If hes not playing lacrosse with me in the yard, he gets no exercise at all. Nothing is motivating my dad to watch what he eats. He is quite tall, so weight doesnt show on him the way it might on someone else. But I happen to know that his cholesterol level is horrible, and no one could be healthy eating the way he does. I have approached my dad many times about this and even offered to prepare a lunch for him. He either ignores me or shrugs his shoulders and jokes about it. I have run out of ideas. I desperately want my dad to be healthy, but I dont want him to think hes being bossed around by his 12-yearold daughter. Any ideas? Ignored in Louisville Dear Ignored: You are sweet to be worried about Dad, but please understand that until your father is ready to watch what he eats, nothing you say or do will make much difference. He knows how you feel, he knows his cholesterol numbers, and chances are, your mom has also said something to him. He may wake up one morning and decide to be healthier. Until then, however, the most you can do is love him the way he is and get him to join you for more lacrosse in the backyard. Dear Annie: After 31 years of marriage, my sonin-law decided he was unhappy and wrote his own divorce papers. My daughter read them and made a couple of changes, and the divorce became final last year. My ex-son-in-law was never a good provider, and his indiscretions are far too numerous to list. However, he still calls and comes over all the time. They have two adult sons who have not been told that they are legally divorced. Yesterday, I got a call from my daughter asking whether I had sent him a birthday card. I replied, No, I dont consider him part of the family. She said, Well, he is the father of your grandsons. Did I do wrong? Annoyed Grandma Dear Grandma: You are not obligated to send your exson-in-law a birthday card, but he was a member of your family for 31 years and probably still wants to be treated as such. And if your daughter wants you to send him a card, it would be a kindness to do so. But for heavens sake, one of them should notify the children of their parents legal status. Dear Annie: You printed a letter from Concerned Sister, who said her sisters clothing smells like her cat litter box. She wants her to store the litter box in the garage. Maybe the sister simply needs to clean the box more often. Animals are fastidious, especially cats. They like a clean place to do their business. Too many people are too lazy to take proper care of the cats boxes. I had seven litter boxes at one time. I cleaned them before I went to work, after coming home and before going to bed. Many friends visited me, and not one could smell the cat boxes. (And dont use perfumes or air fresheners to mask the smell. They dont work and may drive away the cat.) Think of it this way: Do you like going into a restroom where the previous user forgot to flush? As an added bonus to cleaning the box often, you will also be alerted if your kitty is sick. 42 Years of Experience in Jacksonville, Fla.Annies Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
