Officials from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Thursday the abandoned kitten was found in mid-January at the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge in Collier County. The male kitten weighed 1 pound and wasnt responsive. Veterinarians at a Naples animal hospital performed life-saving measures and gave the kitten 24hour care. When the kitten was strong enough, he was brought to Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. Eventually he will be taken to Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park.

Thats what community leaders and educators preached Thursday when recognizing five superintendents from the past 46 years. They were honored in front of former colleagues, friends and family members at the unveiling of the Superintendents Wall of Fame ceremony at Withlacoochee Technical Institute. Presenters each spoke of their memories of their designated former superintendent. Ed Murphy was the first to give a personal testimony. He was he joined by the late Roger Weavers family. He was loved for his educational insight and his humbleness to the employees of the Citrus County School Board, Murphy said. When needed, Mr. Weaver was an enforcer capable of authoritative steel. He also had an idea that it was OK to dream big and a desire to give back to the community in an area that he loved. We were a part of something extra ordinary in the school district, he continued. It was a new spirit in the community and that dream is known as the Lecanto Educational Complex. People laughed when we went out there and said we were going to build a complex. Well, the last bit of humor rests with Weaver in peace. Next was Steven Richardson, who introduced former superintendent Carl E. Austin. He told about how student populations were growing throughout the state and schools were being built or renovated while technology was being infused. Through it all, Carl displayed his leadership capabilities as he oversaw the training of often resistant ERYN WORTHINGTON/ChronicleAir Force veteran Virgil DeVine, left, Army veteran Ray E.

Their names were engraved on the black granite Purple Heart Memorial in Old Homosassa. Air Force veteran Virgil DeVine, Army veteran Ray E. Mead and Vietnam veteran Robert S. Pope Jr. gathered a week ago along Yulee Drive for the unveiling of their names on the memorial across from Homosassa Elementary School. When we came back, we were called every name, Pope said. No one knew what we went through. To be finally recognized means the world to us. We are very pleased that these gentlemen took the time to find us. Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8189 erected the memorial, which stands next to another memorial that includes emblems of the five branches of military service and the POW/MIA logo, plus 54 individually sponsored monument stones containing the names of Citrus County veterans living and deceased.

Firefighters were dispatched at 10:59 a.m. and engines arrived on scene at 11:05 a.m. Crews arrived to find a small apartment complex with smoke and flames billowing from the bottom floor of one of the apartments in the duplex. The six occupants, including children, were able to vacate the residence. Two occupants were transported by Nature Coast EMS to Citrus Memorial hospital with minor injuries. The potential for this fire to have been more serious was certainly there, said Fire Rescue Chief Jim Goodworth. Because of the recent addition of the firefighter at the Inverness station, we were able get this fire under control quickly. Were also thankful that everyone was able to get out safely. Two and a half rooms were completely destroyed in one unit of the complex. The other units werent touched by fire, but have smoke damage. The State Fire Marshals Office is investigating. Fire damages Inverness duplex Special to the ChronicleTwo and a half rooms in this Inverness apartment complex were destroyed by fire Friday. administrators and teachers who needed to change their methods of delivering the new curriculum with technological tools, Richardson said. Everyone came together and the Citrus County schools implemented the new programs and expanded the buildings to accommodate that technology. Carl helped us through this process while keeping us fiscally solvent. Doug Connors had the crowd laughing while he told stories of his favorite coach and superintendent, James H. Hughes. My freshman year you cut me from the baseball team. It was your mistake and you admitted to it, Connors joked. He then said, Coach, you are a man of strong Christian faith and you have set an example for all of us to follow. The job of superintendent demands a man or woman with a strong faith that can deal with the unbelievable pressures that superintendents face every day. While your decisions were firm, you are extremely caring. It is this aspect and care for the entire district that made you such a success. Kelly Tyler lauded former superintendent Julian Pete Kelly II for his vision. He had a vision of Citrus County being a worldclass school district, Tyler said. He worked tirelessly to make that happen. I think over the years it has proven to be a world-class school district. Craig Marlett said David J. Hickey was the type of superintendent all kids remember. We are here to honor him as a superintendent, Marlett said. But if we look at the impact that he had on Citrus County, he would have more impact on the kids. This man will do anything to help a child. He has done a great job impacting people in this community and a great job as superintendant. At the conclusion of the ceremony, the current superintendent of schools, Sandra Sam Himmel, said she is who she is today because of the strong foundation of superintendents before her. We talk about Citrus County schools all the time when we travel around the state, she said. People always ask me how we do what we do in Citrus County and how did we get to where we are. Its because of the strong foundation of these gentlemen and superintendents. They have thousands of hours of blood, sweat and tears put into our children. My hope and prayer every night is that I carry on your expectations of our district and what you expect of our kids. I will be honored one day when I get to hang my picture up next to you all. After each superintendent was honored, Himmel unveiled their portrait. Following the ceremony, all five photos were hung at the district office to create the Superintendents Wall of Fame.

The crash killed 25-yearold Chase Kaleb Leveille early Friday. Investigators said Leveille was initially heading south on the interstate around 2:30 a.m. But he apparently U-turned and headed north on the wrong side of the highway. He crashed his 1993 Honda Civic head-on into an Enterprise rental truck near Bearss Avenue. Leveille died at the scene. Truck driver Jason D. Lullen, 47, and passenger Joe N. Smith, 65, received only minor injuries. Both lanes of the interstate were closed for several hours as authorities investigated. The highway patrol will determine whether drugs or alcohol were involved. This is the second fatal, wrong-way crash along this stretch of I-275 in two weeks. A driver going the wrong way on Feb. 9 crashed into a car carrying four University of South Florida students. That accident happened just north of Busch Boulevard when Daniel Lee Morris, 28, drove his friends Ford Expedition south in the northbound lanes. Morris, along with four fraternity brothers Dammie Yesudhas, 21, Jobin Kuriakose, 21, Imtiyaz Jim Ilias, 20 and Ankeet Patel, 22 all died in the collision.EllentonToddler drowns in bathtubAuthorities say a 19month-old girl drowned in a bathtub at her home near Bradenton.

From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Man charged with exposing himself A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerA Crystal River man who initially told deputies a rash made him scratch his genitals in public has been arrested and charged with two counts each of lewd and lascivious exhibition and exposure of sexual organs. Dana Glen Robbins, 28, of North Jasper Terrace, was arrested and charged Thursday after nearly a month long investigation by the Citrus County Sheriffs Office. His bond is $11,000. Robbins alleged penchant for exposing himself to females, both adult and children, came to the attention of investigators in late January when a woman called and described a young white male standing in front of his truck lights and in front her home, exposed and performing lewd acts. According to the Robbins arrest affidavit, in the days following that first incident in a specific area of Homosassa, more people called the sheriffs office to report similar encounters with a man fitting the description of Robbins. During one incident, one of the alleged victims was able to capture a distant picture of Robbins and his pickup truck. Robbins allegedly moved from street to street, dropping his pants and acting lewdly. Some of the incidents involved situations where Robbins reportedly was watching children play in a yard and following after a group of minor girls on foot in the neighborhood. Investigators said one of the victims was able to get a tag number from Robbins truck and deputies used that information to locate him. Robbins was under surveillance briefly and was eventually contacted via traffic stop after he left his workplace. When he was initially confronted about the allegations he denied them, saying the first incident happened because he had to scratch due to a rash. According to the report, when Robbins was pressed, he admitted to all the allegations and said he was involved in a longdistance relationship with his girlfriend and would get lonely and that his solution was to drive around, watch pornography on an electronic device and act in a lewd manner. Robbins reportedly said he never intended to make contact with any victims. He was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Friday the students in Mullins class had family, fellow students and school staff walk among the figures as they recited their speeches. Some of the historical figures included Dr. Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Neil Armstrong and Abraham Lincoln.

They are learning about what courage looks like, she said. They have se en that courage doesnt happen overnight, it started when they were children. And they are learning that the decisions they make now mold who they are going to be when theyre adults.

Ewing is gone, but his presence still looms large on Dallas along with the influence of the actor who made the conniving oilman one of televisions most beloved characters. The third season of the reboot of the classic series, which premieres Monday on TNT, marks the first full season without Larry Hagman, who died of complications from cancer in November 2012 at age 81. But cast members say the memory and schemes of his character who was shot to death in the second season to coincide with Hagmans death live on. On the casts call sheets, Hagmans name is even still listed first. His character was such a larger-than-life being that we still reference him on the show, said Patrick Duffy, who reprises his role as J.R.s brother Bobby Ewing in the new series. And a lot of the plot devices that were dealing with, we attribute to the character of J.R.: Oh my God, if it hadnt have been for that, then this wouldnt have happened. Damn him. But there he is. Hes omnipresent and thats good. Duffy spoke during filming this month at the fictional familys home base of Southfork Ranch, which is now a tourist attraction, just outside Dallas. CBS aired the original Dallas from 1978 to 1991. As the Ewings schemed and the plot twisted season after season, the series contributed to some of TVs most memorable moments, including the 1980 cliffhanger that left the whole world asking Who shot J.R.? In addition to Hagman and Duffy, the new TNT series revival brought back Linda Gray to reprise her role of J.R.s ex-wife, Sue Ellen, and Ken Kercheval as Cliff Barnes, the Ewings archenemy. Adding to the family drama in the new series, filmed entirely in the Dallas area, are Josh Henderson as John Ross, J.R. and Sue Ellens son, and JesseMetcalfe as Christopher, Bobbys adopted son.Pink joins lineup for the OscarsLOS ANGELES Have the Oscars gone Grammys?

Mexicos low and stagnant wages have helped kept the poverty rate between 40 percent and 50 percent since the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement two decades ago. An $800 million Honda plant that opened Friday in the central state of Guanajuato will produce more than 200,000 Fit hatchbacks and compact sportutility vehicles a year, helping push total Mexican car exports to the U.S. to 1.7 million in 2014, roughly 200,000 more than Japan, consulting firm IHS Automotive says. And with another big plant starting next week, Mexico is expected to surpass Canada for the top spot by the end of 2015. Its a safe bet, said Eduardo Solis, president of the Mexican Automotive Industry Association. Mexico is now one of the major global players in car manufacturing. When NAFTA was signed two decades ago, Mexico produced 6 percent of the cars built in North America. It now provides 19 percent. Total Mexican car production has risen 39 percent from 2007, to nearly 3 million cars a year. The total value of Mexicos car exports surged from $40 billion to $70.6 billion over that span. I congratulate Honda for its having confidence in Mexico, for having total confidence in the development of our country, said Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, who attended the opening of the plant in the town of Celaya along with Honda CEO Takanobu Ito. Theyre contributing to two basic objectives, generating wealth and creating jobs in this country. Manufacturing in Mexico is now cheaper than in many places in China, though the vast majority of the cars and trucks made in North America are still produced in the U.S. for domestic consumption and export to other countries. And many of the vehicles built in Mexico are assembled with parts that are produced in the United States and Canada and cross the border without tariffs under NAFTA. There was a realization that there were some structural issues that had to be resolved in the auto industry to make it more competitive again. Moving parts, not all of the production, to Mexico was a good way to deal with that, said Christopher Wilson, an expert in U.S.Mexico economic relations for the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Mexicos government and the car industry say the automotive industry has become the primary source of foreign currency for Mexico, surpassing oil exports and remittances from immigrants in the United States. Migration to the U.S. has slowed dramatically in recent years, though experts attribute that mostly to tougher enforcement and a slower U.S. economy. Despite successes such as the car-making boom, Mexico still isnt creating nearly enough formal jobs for the hundreds of thousands of people entering the workforce each year. While Mexicos official unemployment rate dropped to 4.62 percent in the last quarter of 2013, nearly 7 percent of working-age people work less than 15 hours a week and nearly 60 percent scrape by in off-the-books jobs such as street vendors or day laborers, whose benefits are virtually nonexistent and whose wages are often below the legal minimum. The Mexican government announced Friday that the economy grew a meager 1.1 percent in 2013, its worst performance since 2009. The government is hoping to see 3.5 percent growth this year. Mexico has roughly 580,000 auto workers, whose numbers have risen by 100,000 since 2008. They are paid about $16 a day, more than $4 less than what the average U.S. autoworker is paid every hour. More than half of all Mexican workers earn less than $15 a day, according to Mexicos census agency. Many car factories in Mexico operate with procompany unions and some workers have fought without success to form independent unions that could bargain for higher pay and better pensions. Its one of the most modern industries that is generating the most money for the country, said Huberto Juarez, an auto industry expert at the Autonomous University of Puebla. Its not right that these workers are making so little. Solis, the president of the auto industry association, acknowledges wages are low compared to the U.S. and Canada, but said the boom is creating a new generation of young engineers and funding automotive research in Mexico.

CARSContinued from Page A1 State BRIEFS Sherriff changes position on stand your groundJACKSONVILLE Jacksonville Sherriff John Rutherford says changes to Floridas stand your ground law are needed. Rutherford told the Florida Times-Union that he supports a tweaking of the controversial law that allows the use of deadly force if someone is threatened with death or great bodily harm. Rutherford previously supported the legislation, but said there should be some duty to retreat provision if it can be done safely. The law returned to the news recently with Michael Dunn being convicted of three counts of attempted second-degree murder after shooting into a car carrying four teenagers. Dunn complained to the teenagers about loud music playing in their car and claimed to see a firearm during the confrontation. Seventeen-year-old Jordan Davis was killed, but jurors were hung on first-degree murder charges.Woman uses iPhone app to track stolen itemsDAYTONA BEACH A woman helped police track down items stolen out of her car by using an app on her iPhone to track her stolen iPad. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Theresa Conroy and her son Thomas discovered on Wednesday morning that both of their vehicles had been burglarized while parked in front of their rental home. Theresa Conroy said she recalled her sister using the tracking app in a similar situation. She gave it a shot and it showed her exactly where her iPad was. The Conroys went to Daytona Beach police. They stopped by the house where the iPad was located. The resident didnt give them permission to search the house. So they got a search warrant. Officers found the iPad hidden in a hole in the garage wall. From wire reports

She actively participated in organizations including the American Home Economics Association and American Women of Radio and Television.

Newsman Garrick Utley dies Associated PressNEW YORK Veteran TV journalist Garrick Utley, whose farranging career included anchoring duties as well as reporting from more than 70 countries, has died of cancer at 74, NBC said Friday. Utley began at NBC News in 1963, and for three decades handled a wide variety of assignments. Early on, he reported from Vietnam on the escalating conflict. In later years, he moderated Meet the Press. In between, Utley anchored Weekend Today and the Sunday Nightly News, as well as two different newsmagazines in two different decades with four different titles. I may have been the only person at NBC News who did every type of programming as host or anchor, he told The Associated Press in 1993, adding that his versatility may have led to the network taking him for granted. Theres a risk in being the utility infielder. That was shortly after he had left NBC to be the chief foreign correspondent for ABC News. He reported for CNN from 1997 to 2002. In recent years, he was a senior fellow and professor of broadcasting and journalism at the State University of New York, Oswego. In 2000, he published a memoir, You Should Have Been Here Yesterday: A Life Story in Television News. Standing a lanky 6-foot-6, Utley was known for his courtly and knowledgeable on-the-air manner. An opera buff, for a time he hosted PBS Live From the Met.
Transcripts show Fed at times slow to grasp crisisWASHINGTON The Federal Reserve agonized in 2008 over how far to go to stop a financial crisis that threatened to cause a recession and at times struggled to recognize its speed and magnitude. The Fed on Friday released hundreds of pages of transcripts covering its meetings during 2008 the most tumultuous period of the crisis. This includes the government takeover of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the fateful decision to let investment bank Lehman Brothers collapse and the bailout of insurer American International Group. For all its aggressive steps in 2008, the transcripts show the Fed failing at times to grasp the size of the catastrophe. Bernanke and his top lieutenants often expressed puzzlement that they werent managing to calm panicky investors.US home sales plunged 5.1 percent in JanuaryWASHINGTON Sales of existing U.S. homes plummeted in January to the worst pace in 18 months. Cold weather, limited supplies of homes on the market and higher buying costs held back purchases. The National Association of Realtors said Friday that sales fell to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.62 million units last month. That was down 5.1 percent from the December pace. The sales rate declined 5.1 percent over the previous 12 months. The flagging sales suggest a deceleration from the momentum for much of 2013, when 5.09 million homes were sold, the most in seven years.FDA looks to reboot nonprescription drug systemWASHINGTON The Food and Drug Administration is looking to revamp its system for regulating hundreds of over-the-counter drugs, saying the decades-old process is not flexible enough to keep pace with modern medical developments. In a federal posting Friday, the agency announced a two-day meeting next month to discuss overhauling the system. Regulators have acknowledged that the process has proven extremely timeconsuming and leaves many common pain relievers, cough medicines and even sunscreen formulas technically under review. The system also is unable to address the need to quickly add warning labels about emerging safety risks.Widespread weather delays cap lousy travel weekDALLAS In a fitting end to a miserable week for travelers, airlines have canceled more than 1,200 flights and another 6,000 are running late. The airlines blamed storms along the East Coast and high winds in the countrys interior on Friday. At New Yorks LaGuardia Airport and in Philadelphia, about one-fourth of flights were scrubbed and many more delayed. At OHare Airport in Chicago, where there was a highwind advisory, nearly one-third of takeoffs were late. This week, 6,000 flights have been canceled and 35,000 delayed, according to FlightAware. Thats a record since the government started keeping track in 1987-88. And theres still a month of winter left.Under Armour extends speedskating suit dealNEW YORK Athletic gear maker Under Armour Inc. has signed an eight-year deal with U.S. Speedskating to provide uniforms despite controversy over the suit it provided the team at the Sochi Olympics. Under Armour spent years developing a new speedskating suit that debuted during the Olympics but flopped. U.S. speedskaters didnt medal and some blamed the suit. The team reverted to an older Under Armour suit, but results have not yet improved. The company said Friday it is ready to try again and will outfit the U.S. speedskating team for the next two Winter Olympics.Railroads confront safety of crude oilBILLINGS, Mont. Railroads that haul volatile crude shipments have reached an agreement with U.S. transportation officials to adopt wide-ranging, voluntary safety measures after a string of explosive and deadly accidents. The agreement between the U.S. Transportation Department and the Association of American Railroads was obtained Friday by The Associated Press. It calls for railroads to slow down oil trains from 50 to 40 miles per hour through major cities, inspect tracks more frequently and bolster emergency response planning along routes that carry trains hauling up to 3 million gallons of crude each. The new safety steps would begin going into effect in late March and be fully in place by July 1. After a boom in domestic drilling in recent years, oil trains now travel thousands of miles from oil producing areas, including the Northern Plains, to coastal refineries and shipping terminals along the Mississippi River and other major waterways.VW in $9.2 billion offer for truck maker ScaniaBERLIN Volkswagen is offering 6.7 billion euros ($9.2 billion) to take over the rest of Swedish truck maker Scania. Europes biggest auto manufacturer said it wants to purchase the 37.4 percent of Scania it doesnt already own. Volkswagen said its offer of 200 Swedish krona per share represents a premium of more than 50 percent. Wolfsburg-based VW estimates a takeover will result in cost savings of 650 million euros a year.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, FEBRUARY22, 2014 A7 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,600 1,650 1,700 1,750 1,800 1,850 AF SONDJ 1,760 1,820 1,880 S&P 500Close: 1,836.25 Change: -3.53 (-0.2%) 10 DAYS 14,500 15,000 15,500 16,000 16,500 17,000 AF SONDJ 15,600 15,920 16,240 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,103.30 Change: -29.93 (-0.2%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1759 Declined1316 New Highs185 New Lows12 Vol. (in mil.)3,333 Pvs. Volume3,336 2,077 1,896 1350 1233 205 18 NYSE NASD DOW 16191.9216093.8016103.30-29.93-0.19%-2.86% DOW Trans.7331.957253.347308.60+56.56+0.78%-1.24% DOW Util.527.99523.00523.47+0.35+0.07%+6.71% NYSE Comp.10353.7810303.3510306.90-9.99-0.10%-0.90% NASDAQ4284.854261.634263.41-4.14-0.10%+2.08% S&P5001846.131835.601836.25-3.53-0.19%-0.66% S&P4001360.901354.311356.56+1.02+0.08%+1.04% Wilshire 500019778.5019681.2119689.26-20.86-0.11%-0.09% Russell 20001168.431163.511164.63+2.51+0.22%+0.09% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Express Scripts, the largest U.S. pharmacy benefits manager, fell after its fourth-quarter earnings slipped, hurt by the loss of UnitedHealth, a large customer. Groupon plunged after the online deals company said it expects to post a loss this quarter and issued a weak outlook for the year. The Standard & Poors 500 index rose in early trading Friday and had almost wiped out its loss for the year by late morning, climbing to within two points of a record close. By late afternoon the index started to turn lower. The stock market has gained this month after getting a boost from decent corporate earnings for the fourth quarter and optimism that the economy will start to pull out of its winter slump as the weather improves. While investors have been willing to overlook much of the weak economic data this month, they appear reluctant to push the stock market back above its recent highs before they see firmer evidence that the economy is sustaining its recovery. Investors are giving the economic data points a bit of a free pass, but at the same time theyre not fully convinced either, said Robert Pavlik, chief market strategist at Banyan Partners, a wealth management firm. The S&P 500 index fell 3.53 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,836.25. The index lost 2.38 points for the week and is now 12 points below its record close of 1,848.38, set Jan. 15. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 29.93 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,103.30. The Nasdaq composite dropped 4.13 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,263.41.

OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2014 New mortgage rulesOn Jan. 12, the Chroniclepublished Sen. Warren hails new mortgage rules. In this article Sen. Elizabeth Warren applauds new mortgage rules which specify that lenders must determine that a borrower has the ability to repay a mortgage before issuing the loan. I agree with Sen. Warren. However, this Massachusetts Democrat seems to have a lapse of memory. In 1977, President Jimmy Carter (a Democrat, in case anyone has forgotten) signed into law the Community Reinvestment Act. This federal law fined banks that required proof of financial ability before a mortgage was written. We have seen that the law of unintended consequences has struck again with the financial disaster from which we are still recovering. Could this have been caused by President Carters Community Reinvestment Act? I think so.Jack Flynn LecantoLets be real about decommissioningJust a brief review of Duke Energys 70-some page submittal to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for the decommissioning of the nuclear unit (CR3), combined with the recent NRC public meeting exchange, the facts should have citizens of this state (more importantly this county) concerned. The focus of the CR3 decommissioning isnt restoration of the property to a green condition but to secure high levels of radioactive waste for years to come. There are no estimates to return that property (our county), to a natural state. It is a ruse to believe anything else. Our state representatives are uninformed and ambiguous about their role in this process, the Public Service Commission doesnt investigate customer liability verses Duke Energy, our county leadership doesnt find it a priority, and there are no standards or codes invoked or enforced by any independent agency aside from DE. Who is overseeing or watching out for the use of our money while DE continues to drain our electric bill (remember Levy County Units 1 & 2)? Our generation was raised on the benefits we gained from that power plant. We owe our kids and their kids a lot more than to clean it up later. Wake up Florida, the nature coast deserves our attention.Harry B. Oates retired mechanical engineer Homosassa Kathleen Willey is back. For people who have forgotten, she is the former volunteer aide to President Bill Clinton who claims he sexually harassed her 20 years ago. She wrote a book about it called Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton. What, you say you didnt read it? Neither, it seems, did most of America, which long ago yawned at Bill Clintons exploits and Hillarys apparent enabling of his extramarital liaisons. Willey is telling anyone who will listen that Hillary Clinton is the real war on women because of the way she treated her and the other women who accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment. Remember bimbo eruptions, a term coined by Clinton aide Betsey Wright, who was charged with monitoring them and then discrediting accusers? On WABCs Aaron Klein radio show (as reported on the conservative website WND.com), Willey said this about Hillary Clinton: The point is what this woman is capable of doing to other women while shes running a campaign basically on womens issues. ... She singlehandedly orchestrated every one of the investigations of all these women (who accused her husband of sexual crimes). Theyre the people reminding us of how sordid this all is. Willey vowed to go back to all the sordid details if Hillary Clinton runs in 2016. Is this strategy likely to sway many, if any, female votes? I doubt it. People long ago made their judgments on the Clintons and decided his (and her) behavior about infidelity was a private matter. Besides, the rules such as they are about most matters involving sex, at least for some liberals, are even looser now than they were 20 years ago. If conservatives and Republicans think resurrecting this old news will bring them electoral victory against Hillary Clinton, should she decide to run, they are mistaken. Dredging up the past may help them raise money, but it wont raise Republican votes. In fact, such a strategy could backfire as Mrs. Clinton would again be portrayed as a victim by a sympathetic media. Having forgiven her husband, those mean Republicans want to assault her again. Republicans have a lot of problems, but chief among them is that they are known more for what they are against. They hate President Obama, Obamacare, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Some Republicans dont even like each other. What and who do they like? What are they for? Where are examples of their policies working creating jobs, improving lives, lowering deficits and taxes, cutting spending and reducing the size and reach of government? (Hint: States have the answer, not Washington.) The number of electoral votes needed to win a presidential election is 270. Electoral votes for Republican presidential candidates have steadily declined since Ronald Reagans impressive 1984 victory over Walter Mondale. In that blowout election, Reagan carried 49 out of the 50 states and received a record 525 electoral votes out of a possible 538. Its been downhill for Republicans ever since. Peter Wehner, former deputy director to the president and a senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, writes in Commentary magazine: Out of the last six presidential elections, four have gone to the Democratic nominee, at an average yield of 327 electoral votes to 210 for the Republican. During the preceding two decades, from 1968 to 1988, Republicans won five out of six elections, averaging 417 electoral votes to the Democrats 113. The countrys changing demographics play a part. White voters, who traditionally and reliably favor the GOP have gone from 89 percent of the electorate in 1976 to 72 percent in 2012. And the numbers continue to decline for the GOP Democrats now hold sway over what CNN.com dubbed the blue wall the cluster of Eastern, Midwest and Western states that have traditionally gone Democratic. These blues states, along with the District of Columbia, total 242 electoral votes. Kathleen Willey, Monica Lewinsky, Paula Jones and the rest of those wronged women are not the key to electoral success for Republicans. Neither is a complete focus on bashing Hillary Clinton. It might make certain conservative Republicans feel good, but it wont win them the White House in 2016.Readers may email Cal Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It just never seemed right to us, and now CVS Caremark has come to the same conclusion. As of Oct. 1, 2014, CVS pharmacies will no longer sell tobacco products. As CVS press releases and website videos said, This is the right thing to do. We agree, and we applaud CVSs courageous action. Other chains ought to follow the CVS lead. Interestingly, the corporate press releases said that eliminating tobacco sales is the right thing to do for the good of our customers and our company. Why is this move good for the company, when tobacco sales have long provided a dependable revenue stream? Its important to the strategic positioning of CVS as a member of the overall healthcare team. The chain is staking out space as a committed partner in promoting health through its thousands of pharmacists, its nurse practitioners and its mini-clinics. What we know as the drug store that also sells milk, magazines and novelties as seen on TV wants to be known as a health care company. Within a few months, CVS plans to roll out its own national smoking cessation program, as part of an expanded role in providing care. The world of health care delivery is changing, and CVS clearly is trying to get out in front of it. Were glad to see in this case that whats good for the company is also good for consumers. Of course, we can argue about CVS continuing to sell salty, fatty junk food and empty-calorie beverages, but quitting tobacco sales is a major step. THE ISSUE:CVS drug chain will stop selling tobacco products.OUR OPINION:Kudos to CVS and others should take note.

Luckily the Chronicle offers the closest thing the Sound Off section. I appreciate you greatly.Oil money gamesHere we go again with the gas monopoly game that theyre playing with it. Here it is, gas jumps up another 15 cents from the other day. Pretty bad that they raise the price of a barrel $1-something and they raise it 10 cents. They drop $2 a barrel, they only drop 2 pennies. You figure what this monopoly game is and all their excuses. Wake up, America.

The writer must remember Obamas infamous orders to Sen. Reid and to Nancy Pelosi not to compromise and to give no concessions. The Democratic Partys rsum should and must be revisited. Barack Hussein Obama, even if he was born in the U.S., spent his formative years being educated in a Muslim country that taught hatred for America. In Chicago, he was indoctrinated to the Communist way of thinking by self-declared Communists like Davis and Anita Dunn, who was proudly stating that the Chinese mass-murderer Mao Tse Tung was her favorite philosopher. Obama ran his first campaign with Karl Marxs ideology of wealth redistribution, taken from Marxs 1848 Communist Manifesto. The liberal media minimized or ignored that very serious threat to our Constitution, giving him carte-blanche to fundamentally change America. And, of course, we know he has proceeded to destroy many of the institutions our Forefathers fought for. In Congress, the Democrats have Nancy Pelosi who, as thenSpeaker of the House, violated the Constitutional procedure of reading and debating a law before asking for voting on it. Even the most staunchly radical liberal cannot deny her infamous proclamation: lets pass this law, so that we can see whats in it. Even then, she didnt have enough votes. Congressman Stupac, a right-to-life Democrat, didnt like many provisions and he refused to vote for it. Obama promised him that the abortion funding provision would be removed from that bill. Stupac then voted for Obamacare. When Obama later re-introduced the abortion mandate via executive order, an angry Congressman Bart Stupac did not seek re-election and is now practicing law. Recently, majority leader Harry Reid has cemented Obamas dictatorial and totalitarian rule by changing the constitutional procedure to confirm judicial nominees. He invoked the nuclear option so that nominees can be confirmed by a simple majority. When the Republicans had a short-lived majority in both Houses and thenSenate Majority Leader Bill Frist threatened to invoke that same option, Senator Joe Biden (now vice-president) voiced a very strong objection, stating that our Constitution should not be fooled with. Of course, his hypocrisy is evident. The local Democratic Party leadership might have changed, but the liberal, un-American, enabling propaganda is as vicious and distorted as ever, with no sense of fair play.Gino Calderone Beverly HillsCommercial vs. homestyle ALFI recently moved my stepmother from a commercial facility to a homestyle assisted living facility. The commercial assisted living facility was very attractive, both inside and out, but their care did not live up to their mission statement. Unfortunately, when they no longer wish to care for your loved one, they simply find ways to terminate their duties and cast them out. This is what happened to my stepmother. After my stepmother was wrongly evicted, I was left to fend for myself. After looking feverously, I discover The Alternative Assisted Living Facility, located in Dunnellon. The facilitys owner/administrator Myrtice Robinson was a godsend. Myrtices facility offers down-home comfort and personal care. With her one-on-one approach, I noticed an improvement right away. My stepmother is much happier there. The homestyle cooking is far above the meals she was served at the commercial facility, and what an improvement in her hygiene. Its a good feeling knowing that your loved one is being taken care of; Myrtice and her staff do just that. Myrtice and her staff keep her busy with exercise, memory improvement games, bingo, walks and Sunday services. Gentiva Hospice of Marion County have been extremely helpful. Professionalism and kindness are just several of their qualities. They remind me of the hospice ladies from South Haven, Mich., who helped with my mother. They are a very special group of people. Thanks. Nancy Griffin Beverly Hills Habitat ReStore Just wanted to mention how cashier Bonnie Johnson was very pleasant and still smiling after she had a bad incident that day, of someone giving her a phony $50 bill. I explained that I am sorry there are cruel people out there who try to get away with things. I hope the rest of the day went better for her, even though I know she was upset and she always is friendly and takes care of her customers. She is still one of the best employees there and I hope that she continues her friendly disposition because we shop there and its a pleasure to do so.Dorraine Baltzell Lecanto Sound OFF LETTERSto the Editor
Cellphone calls on planes? Dont ask the feds Associated PressWASHINGTON It looks like the government is more conflicted about cellphones on planes than most travelers. Even as one federal agency considers allowing the calls, another now wants to make sure that doesnt happen. Passengers particularly those who fly often oppose allowing calls in flight, polls show. In line with that sentiment, the Transportation Department signaled in a notice posted online Friday that it is considering retaining the 23year-old ban on the calls and asked for public comments. But the notice comes just two months after the Federal Communications Commission voted to pursue lifting the ban. The department regulates aviation consumer issues. The FCC has responsibility over whether the use of cellphones in flight would interfere with cellular networks on the ground. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has said he wants to repeal the current ban, calling it restrictive and outdated. He also wants the airlines, not the government, to have final say on in-flight calling. Echoing some travelers concerns, the department said it believes allowing passengers to make cellphone calls may be harmful or injurious to other passengers. This is because people tend to talk louder on cellphones than when theyre having face-to-face conversations, the department said. They are also likely to talk more and further increase the noise on a flight, as passengers would not be simply talking to the persons sitting next to them but can call whomever they like. Some planes already have seat-back phones in place, but they are rarely used, it said. The concern is not about individual calls, but rather the cumulative impact of allowing in-flight calls in close quarters, the department said. Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine Under heavy pressure from the West following a deadly day of clashes and sniper fire in the capital, President Viktor Yanukovych and opposition leaders struck a deal Friday aimed at bringing Ukraines three-month political crisis to an end. But radical protesters and some pro-Russian factions rejected it, leaving lingering doubts over whether peace could be restored. On a day of electrifying developments, the Ukrainian parliament also opened a path for Yulia Tymoshenko Yanukovychs political nemesis to be let out of prison. In spite of what looked like a significant government retreat, protesters booed opposition figures who took to a stage Friday evening to present the deal, which cuts Yanukovychs powers and calls for early elections but falls short of demands for his immediate resignation. Death to the criminal! some chanted, referring to Yanukovych. Resign! Resign! Resign! shouted others as one radical speaker threatened to go on an armed offensive if the opposition doesnt demand the presidents resignation by Saturday morning. Addressing the crowd in Kievs Independence Square, opposition leader Vitali Klitschko tried to persuade them that Yanu kovych had likely given all he was willing to give. Hes not going to resign. This isnt realistic. We have to think about realistic steps, Klitschko said. The agreement signed Friday calls for presidential elections to be moved up from March 2015 to no later than December, but many protesters said that is far too late. And it does not address the issue that set off the protests in November Yanukovychs abandonment of closer ties with the European Union in favor of a bailout deal with longtime ruler Russia. The standoff between the government and protesters escalated this week, as demonstrators clashed with police and snipers opened fire in the worst violence the country has seen since the breakup of the Soviet Union a quarter-century ago. The Health Ministry put the death toll at 77 and some opposition figures said its even higher. Then the parliament took the bold move of approving a measure that could free arch-rival Tymoshenko, who has served two and a half years on a conviction of abuse of office, charges that domestic and Western critics have denounced as a political vendetta. Legislators voted to decriminalize the count under which Tymoshenko was imprisoned, meaning that she is no longer guilty of a criminal offense.

A former tribal leader killed her brother, nephew, niece and a worker at the headquarters of a small Indian tribe that was evicting the suspect and her son from its land in far Northern California, police said on Friday. Cherie Lash Rhoades, former chairwoman of the Cedarville Rancheria tribe, critically wounded two other people on Thursday during a meeting in Alturas about the eviction, police said. Those killed included the suspects brother, 50-yearold Rurik Davis; her niece, 19-year-old Angel Penn; and her nephew, 30-yearold Glenn Calonicco, Modoc County Sheriff Mike Poindexter said. The other person killed was Shelia Lynn Russo, 47, a tribal administrator who managed evictions and the mother of two teenagers, said her mother, Linda Stubblefield of Taft. One of the wounded was alert and talking. The other remained in critical condition, Alturas Police Chief Ken Barnes said.Obama to award Medal of HonorWASHINGTON Seeking to correct potential acts of bias spanning three wars, President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Honor to 24 Army veterans following a congressionally mandated review to ensure that eligible recipients were not bypassed due to prejudice. The unusual mass ceremony, scheduled for March 18, will honor veterans, most of Hispanic or Jewish heritage, who had already been recognized with the Distinguished Service Cross, the nations second highest military award. Only three of the recipients are living. The Army conducted the review under a directive from Congress in the 2002 National Defense Authorization Act. Of the 24, eight fought in the Vietnam War, nine in the Korean War and seven in World War II. The three living recipients are all Vietnam veterans: Spec. 4 Santiago J. Erevia of San Antonio, for courage during a search and clear mission near Tam Ky, South Vietnam, on May 21, 1969. Staff Sgt.

Slain beauty queen mournedVALENCIA, Venezuela A university student beauty queen was mourned Friday in the provincial Venezuelan city where she was slain this week during a political protest, a victim of what government opponents contend is indiscriminate violence used by President Nicolas Maduro and his supporters to stifle dissent across the country. Family members and friends of 22-year-old Genesis Carmona said the former Miss Tourism 2013 for the central Venezuelan state of Carabobo was shot down by members of the armed militias known as colectivos who opened fire on a demonstration in Valencia on Tuesday. People at the service who were also at the rally said they saw a group of up to 50 men on motorcycles, armed with handguns fire directly into the crowd of about 3,000 demonstrators, setting off a panicked stampede through the street. Venezuelas government revoked the press credentials of journalists from CNN after President Nicolas Maduro blasted the television networks coverage of political protests. CNN said Friday four of its journalists were notified by the Information Ministry that they are no longer allowed to report in the country, including CNN en Espanol anchor Patricia Janiot.Nine attackers dead in Somalia MOGADISHU, Somalia Nine al-Shabab militants wearing military fatigues and carrying guns and grenades died after attacking the presidential palace with two car bombs on Friday, in an assault the president called a media spec tac ular by a dying animal. President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud was unharmed, but two government officials were killed, the interior ministry said. The attack underscores a worrying new trend in Mogadishu: That despite a period of relative calm following al-Shababs ouster from Mogadishu in August 2011, militants have carried out a series of deadly assaults in recent weeks that have seen the city hit with mortar fire and pitched battles.

Obamas actions a show of constraint Associated PressWASHINGTON This week, President Barack Obama promoted tougher fuel efficiency standards for trucks. He touted progress on initiatives to strengthen the U.S. patent system. And he signed an executive order intended to speed up the process for approving import or export cargo. Welcome to Obamas self-proclaimed year of action, where hardly a day goes by without the president and his top advisers trumpeting policy initiatives the White House is undertaking without the help of Congress. The mostly modest actions far shy of the sweeping immigration overhaul Obama hoped for this year put into sharp focus the presidents limitations as he grapples with reluctant lawmakers in an election year. They also underscore how much has changed for Obama since the early days of his presidency, when he declared, We do big things. Yet the flurry of executive actions does seem to be having a cathartic effect inside the White House, which was in need of a jolt after a frustrating and disjointed 2013 that included the flawed rollout of Obamas signature health care law and a sharp drop in the presidents approval ratings. Advisers who ended the year dispirited now appear buoyed by a new sense of purpose and the prospect of working around a Congress that has long been an irritant to the president. I think people came back from the break over the holidays in a real positive frame of mind, said David Axelrod, a longtime adviser to the president. You dont want to be the prisoner of a negative narrative that somehow Congress has stymied the president and nothing can get done. Deal in Ukraine?

Associated PressWomens slalom gold medal winner MikaelaShiffrin of the United States poses with the American flag Friday at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia. 18-year-old Mikaela Shiffrin wins Olympic slalom Canada beats US 1-0 to reach gold-medal mens hockey game Associated PressKRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia Normally so composed, so in control, so not-veryteenlike on and off the slopes, Mikaela Shiffrin suddenly found herself in an awkward position halfway through the second leg of the Olympic slalom. Guilty, perhaps, of charging too hard as she swayed this way and that around the courses gates, Shiffrin briefly lost her balance. Her left ski rose too far off the snow. Her chance at a gold medal in the event shes dominated for two years was about to slip away. Yeah, that was pretty terrifying for me. There I was, Im like, Grrreat. Im just going to go win my first medal. And then, in the middle of the run, Im like, Guess not, the American said with a laugh Friday night. So like, No. Dont do that. Do not give up. You see this through. My whole goal was to just keep my skis moving. Somehow, she did just that. Shiffrin stayed upright, gathered herself and, although giving away precious time there, was able to make a big lead from the first leg stand up. She won by more than a half-second to become, at 18, the youngest slalom champion in Olympic history. Its going to be something that I chalk up as one of my favorite experiences for the rest of my life, Shiffrin said. But my lifes not over yet. No, Mikaela, its not. Its only just beginning. Think about this for a moment: How might a typical American teenager have spent her Friday night? At the mall with friends? At a movie? At a high school dance? Shiffrin spent hers outracing the best skiers in the world down a floodlit Rosa Khutor course, knocking aside gates with her neon yellow pole handles. She was fastest in the first run, then sixth-fastest in the second, for a combined time of 1 minute, 44.54 seconds. A pair of Austrians won silver and bronze: Marlies Schild was 0.53 behind Shiffrin, and Kathrin Zettel was 0.81 back. At 32, Schild is the oldest Olympic slalom medalist ever old enough to have been someone Shiffrin looked up to as, well, even more of a kid than she is Associated PressSOCHI, Russia For the rematch, Canada skipped the overtime and shelved the theatrics. One slick goal and 60 minutes of stifling defensive hockey kept the Canadians firmly on top of the U.S. and moved them to the brink of gold again. Jamie Benn scored in the second period, Carey Price made 31 saves, and Canada beat the United States 1-0 Friday night in the semifinals of the Olympic mens hockey tournament. Canada advanced to the gold-medal match Sunday against Sweden, which beat Finland 2-1 in the earlier semifinal at Bolshoy Ice Dome. With an unbeaten run through Sochi, the Canadians are a win away from their third gold medal in four Olympics, and theyre guaranteed their first medals outside North America in 20 years. Although it was fast-paced and well-played, this win had none of the flair of Sidney Crosbys overtime goal to beat the U.S. four years ago. The Canadians didnt care.

JON-MICHAELSORACCHI Staff writerLECANTO After a close-to-the-vest search for its next head football coach that included 56 applicants and eight finalists, Lecanto High School named Greg Walker as McKinley Rolles successor Friday morning on the Panthers campus. Walker joins Lecanto after serving as the offensive coordinator and assistant head coach at University High School in Orange City during the 2013 campaign. Prior to that, Walker spent time as an assistant football coach at Orlando Evans, University (Orlando), DeLand and Orlando Colonial. The new leader of the Panthers program will be faced with the same thing most previous Lecanto football coaches faced a major rebuilding job. The Panthers have had just one winning record in school history (6-4 in 2001), one state playoff appearance in 1999 and are 20-80 during the past 10 regular seasons. Walker, for his part, relishes the task. Ive always wanted to be a head football coach and I was just looking for the opportunity to get the job, Walker said. I know they havent had a lot of success here, but thats also attractive because we can turn this thing around and get it going in the right direction. Panthers activities director Ron Allan who was Lecantos head football coach from 2007 to 2010 was impressed with Walkers football knowledge and expressed interest in student-athletes. He talked about how when he dealt with his kids at University, Allan said, he spent a lot of time away from football with them. He has an excitement for being a head football coach. I think thats going to be evident as we go forward. Hes very personable and very approachable. Lecanto also liked Walker because of his ability to fill two head coaching vacancies: he will also lead the Panthers boys weightlifting squad. Arguably, the new coachs prowess in the latter sport is more impressive while at DeLand, he won the 2005 boys weightlifting championship. Walker is, understandably, a big proponent of the weight room and said his real work with his new charges would come outside the three-month football season. Seventy-five percent of what a head football coach does is during the offseason, Walker said.

B2SATURDAY, FEBRUARY22, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Confident Bortles believes in elite potential UCF QB will throw Sunday Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS Of the three quarterbacks projected to be picked at the top of the NFL draft this year, Blake Bortles is considered to be the most raw. This, he freely admits. I have no problem with that. I need coaching. I need help. I think everybody in the game does, Bortles said. He is also determined to make up the difference, fueled by the belief he can become the best prospect at this heralded and critical position. Im going to do everything that I can here to make sure that when I leave theres other people saying that besides me, Bortles said Friday at the NFLs annual scouting combine. Bortles was measured at an ideal 6-foot-5 and 232 pounds. He has a strong arm and decent athleticism for his size. He didnt face consistently top-tier competition at Central Florida, but he has shown steady improvement and shined at the Fiesta Bowl in his last college game before deciding to skip his senior season. To give you a complete evaluation at this point, I dont think Im ready to do that, but I can tell you weve watched enough that were very intrigued by him, the traits he has: big, tall, timing, accuracy, decision making, Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley said. Those are the things we take a close look at. With Houston at No. 1, Jacksonville at No. 3, Cleveland at No. 4, Oakland at No. 5, and Minnesota at No. 8, teams all seeking a long-term solution at quarterback, there is almost no way Bortles, Texas A&Ms Johnny Manziel or Louisvilles Teddy Bridgewater will still be available after that. Bridgewater, who wasnt available to reporters on Friday, declared early for the draft like the two others. But he is the most polished. You can put the tape in and watch him do things and say, yeah, that translates to the next level, NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said. Hes not as much a wild card as Manziel, and I think hes more developed in his reads and throws than Bortles. So thats why I say I think hes the most ready to play. Bortles will throw in front of the teams and their evaluators Sunday when the quarterbacks test their skills at Lucas Oil Stadium. It is a seemingly simple decision now seen as risky by some prospects under advisement from agents to limit their participation to pro day workouts on their own campuses. Bortles stood at a podium Friday with poise, polish and plenty of confidence, not brash but sure sounding ready for whatever the NFL will bring. He revealed Brett Favre as his childhood favorite and said he sees Ben Roethlisberger and Andrew Luck as contemporary examples of the type of quarterback he can develop into. He even boldly mentioned Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. By no means am I those guys, he said, adding: I 100 percent believe that eventually I can do what those guys do. Bortles also emphasized his character during the mini-sales pitch he made to the media, undoubtedly similar to what hes sharing with the teams themselves during screening interviews throughout the weekend. I wont embarrass an organization off the field by making maybe bad decisions or anything like that, Bortles said. I wont embarrass my familys name, and will be a trustworthy guy and a trustworthy player. Perhaps that was a subtle shot at Manziel, the biggest headliner of this class. Manziel was all business in his news conference Friday, but he wont soon escape the tales of off-the-field shenanigans and questions of character that have followed him from Texas A&M. In many ways, Bortles is the opposite of Manziel, starting with the skill sets. He is a big guy. He is athletic. He is a competitive guy, said Houston coach Bill OBrien, whose Penn State team was beaten by Bortles and Central Florida last year. It has been fun to watch him play on tape. It will be good to work him out here. Derek Carr of Fresno State, Jimmy Garappolo of Eastern Illinois, and A.J. McCarron of Alabama comprise the consensus next tier of 2014 quarterback prospects. McCarron, of course, has what none of the others do: two national championships. In the hyper-saturated world of professional football analysis, somehow those titles have managed to become a potential weakness for McCarron, who had the benefit of maybe the most talented roster in the country around him. Everybody says I played behind NFL talent at Alabama. Well, usually thats whats in the NFL: NFL talent. So I dont know how that can be a knock, really, he said, embracing the old chip-onthe-shoulder mentality. Ive been disrespected my whole college career, because I won.

Rolle the coach Walker is replacing went 10-21 in three years at the helm of Lecanto, which included a 55 regular-season record in 2012. However, the Panthers ended the 2013 season on an eight-game losing streak and Rolle resigned for personal reasons in November. By January though, he was named head coach at King High School in Tampa. Walker is married to wife Karen and the couple has three daughters: Jessica, Faith and Clarissa. He was a part of Gainesville Buchholzs 1990 state championship team and later attended the University of Central Florida. Im looking forward to it, said Walker of Citrus Countys smaller environment. I know my wife likes the smaller, more country-type areas. Im one of those guys who is adaptable. You can put me anywhere and Ill be OK. Lecanto High School and its football team will certainly hope so. In fact, the Panthers are betting theyve found the right guy to not just lead, but build a program. The mindset is we want to win football games on Friday night, Allan said, but we also want our coaches to worry about the whole athlete too. I got a really good feeling from talking to Greg and a couple of other people that know him, and thats important to him.Jon-Michael Soracchi is the Chronicle sports editor. He can be reached at 352-564-2928 or emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org now. I won my age class, Schild joked. She holds the record with 35 career World Cup slalom wins and now owns three Olympic medals in the discipline, two silvers and a bronze. You know whats surreal? That Marlies and Mikaela are on a podium together, said Shiffrins father, Jeff. Marlies, shes battled, shes had injuries, but shes been the queen of slalom. Mikaela has said, Ive channeled Marlies. Shiffrin has won nine of the last 19 World Cup or world championship slaloms; no one else has won more than two in that span. Last year, her slalom world title made her the youngest champion in any event since 1985. Talk about precocious. And seriousminded, too. Since she was about 13, Shiffrin has jotted down thoughts in notebooks, about skiing, yes, but also about what sorts of questions might arise from reporters. I first met her when she was 16, and I realized right away that she is one of a kind, said Roland Pfeifer, the U.S. womens technical coach. She wants to know everything about skiing. The way she trains, the volume she trains, she probably is 25 already. Shiffrin got a cold while in Russia, so she spent Friday morning drinking orange juice and trying to relax. After her terrific opening run, she listened to music and did word searches. Like a kid killing time between classes. In her Olympic debut, Tuesdays giant slalom, Shiffrin finished fifth. But the slalom is her specialty. I did envision this moment so many times, said Shiffrin, who wore a stars-and-stripes USA temporary tattoo on her neck. On the chairlift ride to the start in the second run, I started crying a little bit. I started tearing up, because I was like, This actually might happen, and I dont know what to think if it does. Canada forward Jonathan Toews said. The next game will follow that work ethic. We can check, we can work our tails off, and we can make things real tough for the other team. After its first loss in Sochi, the U.S. will face Finland for bronze on Saturday. The Americans were hoping for redemption from their gut-wrenching defeat in 2010, but they only got a businesslike reminder of Canadas clout. We didnt show up to play, U.S. defenseman Ryan Suter said. Its too bad. ... We sat back. We were passive. You cant play scared. I thought we sat on our heels and just didnt take it to them at all. Indeed, the defending Olympic champions left little doubt about their North American hockey dominance in a rematch of the finale of the Vancouver Games. Although the Canadians had no signature moments and never pulled away, they also never appeared seriously threatened. From faceoff to final buzzer, Canada was in control thanks to Price, Benn and defenseman Jay Bouwmeester, whose pass created Benns goal. All three players werent on the Canadian team in Vancouver, but theyre a win away from earning their own gold medals. Obviously we knew it was going to be a tight match going in, Benn said. We found a way to get one, our team played great team defense, and our goalie shut the door. The Canadians havent even trailed in the Sochi Olympics, and they coolly maintained border supremacy on the U.S. by defending their blue line with authority. Their stifling defense has allowed just three goals in five games, and they clamped down on an American offense that had scored 19 goals in Sochi for every minute of a slightly anti-climactic evening. We didnt really create much offense, U.S. forward Patrick Kane said. Its a little disappointing. ... I think everyone expected a tightchecking game, but to say we would have gotten shut out, I dont think anyone would have thought that. Jonathan Quick stopped 36 shots in a strong performance for the Americans, who had trailed for just 7:19 in Sochi before Benns goal put them in a hole they never escaped. Canada scored early in the second period during a shift by Benn and Anaheim Ducks teammates Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. Benn got the puck outside to Bouwmeester, who threaded a pass into the slot for Benns deflection past Quick, whose aggression sometimes makes him vulnerable to such shots. Benn, the Dallas Stars captain, didnt get an invitation to Canadas summer Olympic orientation camp and was one of the last players added to the roster. But hes had a great tournament and his goal was all the offense needed by Price, the Montreal goalie who easily handled the Americans few good chances, including their clunky power plays. Crosby still has no goals through five games in Sochi, but the Canadian captain had his best overall game as Canada beat the Americans for the fourth time in five Olympic meetings since the NHL players joined the party in 1998. The showdown might have been the last Olympic meeting of these nations best players for a long while if the NHL keeps players out of the 2018 Pyeongchang Games, forcing the rivalry to move to a World Cup or world championship. Warriors baseball edges Dunnellon 5-4The Seven Rivers Christian baseball team earned a 5-4 victory at Dunnellon on Thursday night. Tucker Pillsbury tossed 5 2/3 innings and struck out eight Tigers to snag the victory for the Warriors. Cory Weiand recorded the save by fanning four batters in 1 1/3 innings. Offensively for Seven Rivers, Coy Phillips doubled and had two RBIs, Adam Gage roped two doubles and also had two RBIs and Weiand added three singles and two runs scored. Garrett Griggs scored twice and had a hit for the Warriors. Seven Rivers (1-0) hosts Mount Dora Bible at 12 p.m. today.Busch wins Truck Series season opener at DaytonaDAYTONA BEACH Kyle Busch used a perfectly timed pass to edge Timothy Peters in the final few feet to win the NASCAR Truck Series season opener Friday night at Daytona International Speedway. Peters was leading coming out of the final turn and did all he could to block Busch. But Busch didnt blink and drove by Peters just before the finish line. It was Buschs 36th Truck Series victory and first at Daytona. He gave Toyota its eighth consecutive Truck Series win there. It also was the automakers fourth victory in four races during Speedweeks. Johnny Sauter was third, followed by Ryan Truex, Ron Hornaday Jr. and Ryan Blaney. Defending series champion Matt Crafton was 13th. This one will be remembered for the finish, which was the series closest in 15 years at Daytona. It was the eighth-closest margin in series history.Another stunning escape for McDowell at Match PlayMARANA, Ariz. Not even Graeme McDowell can believe hes still alive in the Match Play Championship. For the third straight round, McDowell pulled off another improbable escape to advance to the quarterfinals Friday at Dove Mountain. This time, all he had to do was win the last two holes against Hunter Mahan to force overtime and make a 20-foot par putt to stay in the match on the 20th hole. He won with a birdie on the 21st hole. In three matches, McDowell has played 58 holes and has never had the lead until he won. Jordan Spieth beat Matt Kuchar. Ernie Els ousted Jason Dufner, Victor Dubuisson beat Bubba Watson, and Rickie Fowler won on the last hole against Sergio Garcia. The other winners were Louis Oosthuizen and Jason Day.

Associated PressSOCHI, Russia Four Ukrainian women gave their politically torn country some good news at the Sochi Games on Friday, and Canada delivered more bad news to the United States yet another Olympic hockey defeat. As government and opposition leaders worked to end the months-long Ukrainian crisis that erupted in deadly violence this week, the Ukraine womens 4x6-kilometer biathlon relay team won the nations first gold medal in two decades. The four women celebrated with a Ukrainian flag as lawmakers back home paused to mark the occasion. There were no celebrations for the U.S. hockey team, with Canada winning 1-0 and dashing the American hopes for mens gold for the third time since 2002. And it happened just one night after the Canadian women had ousted their American counterparts for the third straight Olympics. Canada and Sweden will play for the mens gold on Sunday. The Swedes beat Finland 2-1. The first doping cases also hit the Winter Games on Friday. Italian bobsledder William Frullani and German biathlete Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle were kicked out of the games after positive doping tests. Frullani was in the fourman bobsled race, which begins Saturday. Sachenbacher-Stehle, a five-time Olympic medalist, participated in five events in Sochi but did not win any medals. On Day 15 of the Sochi Olympics, 18-year-old American skier Mikaela Shiffrin became the youngest-ever gold medal winner in the womens slalom; Marielle Thompson of Canada edged teammate Kelsey Serwa for the gold in womens skicross; Canada routed Britain 9-3 to win its third straight gold medal in mens curling; and short track speedskating gold medals went to Viktor Ahn of Russia in the mens 500, to Park Seung-hi of South Korea in the womens 1,000, and to Russia in the mens 5,000-meter relay.BiathlonUkraines team of twins Vita and Valj Semerenko, Juliya Dzhyma, and Olena Pidhrushna missed five targets but avoided penalty loops to finish in 1 hour, 10 minutes, 2.5 seconds. Russia was 26.4 seconds behind to take silver, and Norway trailed by 37.6 to win bronze.Ice hockeyJamie Benn scored the only goal Canada needed in its 1-0 win over the U.S. Finland went up early in the second period when Olli Jokinen scored, but Swedens Loui Eriksson tied it up and Erik Karlsson made it 2-1 with a slap shot from the middle of the ice.Alpine skiingShiffrin became the youngest Olympic slalom champion, male or female, with her win. That mark was previously held by Paoletta Magoni of Italy, who won gold at the 1984 Sarajevo Games when she was 19. Austrian teammates Marlies Schild and Kathrin Zettel took silver and bronze.Freestyle skiingThompson and Serwa gave Canada its third 1-2 finish in freestyle skiing events in Sochi. The others came in mens and womens moguls. Canada also won gold and bronze in womens slopestyle skiing, and picked up a silver in the mens halfpipe, for a total of nine freestyle medals. In the skicross final, Ophelie David of France wiped out about two-thirds down the course, giving the bronze to Swedens Anna Holmlund.CurlingCanadas championship gave the country a sweep of the curling titles in Sochi. The Canadian women won their first-ever curling title on Thursday. Sweden won the bronze in mens curling, taking an extra end to defeat China 6-4.SpeedskatingAhn, who was born in South Korea and became a Russian citizen in 2011, now has a career record eight short track medals. In addition to winning the 500, he anchored the Russian 5,000 relay team. He also became the first skater to win all four individual short track events at the Olympics. The U.S. team won silver in the relay, ending a medal drought for the American speedskaters.B4SATURDAY, FEBRUARY22, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Kwasniewski wins Nationwide pole Slick-fielding Escobar finds a home with Rays Associated PressPORT CHARLOTTE Yunel Escobar is coming off the best season of his career, and the Tampa Bay Rays believe their slickfielding shortstop can be even better in 2014. The native of Cuba shrugged off a slow start to post solid numbers offensively a year ago; however, stellar defense was his biggest contribution to a team that reached the playoffs for the fourth time in six seasons. Largely viewed as an underachiever with the Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays, Escobar led all major league shortstops with a .989 fielding percentage in his first year in Tampa Bay, which acquired him in a trade from the Miami Marlins last winter. Rays manager Joe Maddon felt the 31-year-old deserved to win an AL Gold Glove award and reiterated that sentiment in a conversation with the shortstop this week, when Escobar reported to spring training. Although there were questions about how Escobar, who was suspended three games in 2012 for wearing eye black displaying an anti-gay slur while playing with the Blue Jays, might fit in with the Rays. But Maddon never shared those concerns. The manager has few rules for the clubhouse, preferring to create a relaxed atmosphere in which players feel they are trusted and free to be themselves. I dont have to tell you whats right and whats wrong. You already know that. ... If they know they are supported in a way that they can be themselves, and its truthfully and honestly an open environment to work within, youre going to get the best out of the player, Maddon said. Guys like (Escobar), Ive just got to make sure we get on the same page, understand one another and be open, the manager added. He knew he could say anything to me that he wanted to at any time. Sometimes things get lost in the translation. You cant permit that to happen. Escobar hit .259 with nine homers, a career-high 27 doubles and 56 RBIs in 153 games last season. Defensively, he committed just seven errors in 610 chances three in the final 108 games while teaming with second baseball Ben Zobrist to form one of the best doubleplay combinations in baseball. The duo had a combined 11 errors, matching the fewest for an AL double-play combo in which both players qualified for a fielding crown. Cal and Billy Ripken committed 11 for the Orioles in 1990, and Mark Loretta and Alex Gonzalez had 11 between them for the Red Sox in 2006. Overall, the Rays committed 59 errors last season 55 fewer than in 2012, and the second-lowest total in the majors behind Baltimores 54. Zobrist, first baseman James Loney and third baseman Evan Longoria joined Escobar in being finalists for Gold Glove awards, though none of Tampa Bays infielders won. The shortstop appreciates Maddons unwavering support, as well as the managers belief that Escobar was deserving recognition for his defensive prowess last season. He treats me with a lot of respect, Escobar said through a translator. Were here to win. Thats really helped me, having that respect in the dugout every time I come back. Teammates have done their part to make him feel welcome, too. People can say what they want from the past, but really I got here on the first day and everything was based off of that, Escobar said. People can say things about my past and my reputation, but I got to meet the people here and thats what theyre basing everything on. Thats who I am here, and how I carry myself here. TSM drivers take top three spots Associated PressDAYTONA BEACH Danica Patrick cleared a path for her teammates in NASCARs new knockout qualifying that led to a Turner Scott Motorsports rout at Daytona International Speedway. Dylan Kwasniewski won the pole for his Nationwide Series debut the first rookie since Rusty Wallace in 1985 to win the pole at Daytona by following Patrick and Kyle Larson through traffic in Fridays qualifying session. The 18-year-old topped the speed chart with a lap at 192.078 mph in the rainshortened qualifying session. Larson qualified second with a lap at 192.074 and Patrick was third as Turner Scotts cars went 1-2-3 for todays race. Danica did a fantastic job of leading us through the pack and getting us clean through there, said Kwasniewski, winner of the K&N East title last year and the K&N West title in 2012. Being a rookie, it was hard for me to make the decisions on where to go, he said. Danica did a fantastic job, she got us through clean and I was coming up to a sea of cars on the back straight and I was like, I have no idea how we are going to be able to get us through this. But she picked her way through perfectly, got us in the right position and got us all three a great lap. We stuck together and made sure we could be a team out there. The qualifying session was the first for NASCARs new multicar, knockout-style format. All cars were on track for the opening 25-minute segment that was interrupted twice by rain. The fastest 24 cars were scheduled to advance to a second, 10minute round, but it was rained out. There were as many as 30 cars on the track at one point, which made the one segment that was run far more entertaining than the traditional single-car runs NASCAR had used. Patrick acknowledged the session was worth watching, but could be interesting as the season progresses. I think there are some times when its going to be a total disaster, Patrick said. Like when we go to short tracks. I just cant imagine where its going to be like. (At Daytona), theres plenty of room, people can go wherever, theres many lanes, its all about momentum. But when you go to places like Bristol, Martinsville and even Phoenix. Short tracks in general are just going to be a really big challenge. And then youve got the mile-and-a-halves where youre just going a lot faster.Rookie Kligerman sweats out Daytona 500 berthDAYTONA BEACH Parker Kligerman burst into the Daytona media room, arms outstretched and unleashed a Woo hoo! One day after flipping his car for the first time in his career, the 23-year-old Kligerman had reason to flip out he was racing in the Daytona 500. Kligerman had to sweat out his spot Thursday night after failing to earn a berth on speed in the first qualifying race, and watched the second race in his motorhome. He compared the stress on Twitter to preparing for fatherhood, then said it was more like watching election results come in on TV. No one has the right info, Kligerman said. Everyones saying the info they think they have, but they just dont know. Finally, NASCAR could call it: Kligerman was in and so was fellow Swan Racing rookie teammate Cole Whitt. The pair of Daytona 500 first-timers were joined by rookie Alex Bowman. Bowman and Whitt raced their way into the 43-driver field via the available transfer spots. Other surprises for Sundays race include drivers from underfunded teams: Landon Cassill made it in the No. 40 Chevrolet for Hillman Racing and Josh Wise has a spot driving the No. 98 Ford for Phil Parsons Racing. Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Matt Kenseth and Denny Hamlin won the twin qualifying races, the first under the lights at Daytona International Speedway. Kenseth, a two-time Daytona 500 winner, edged Kevin Harvick and Kasey Kahne in the first 150-mile feature. Hamlin took the checkered flag in a wilder second one. After the race, Harvick was informed while sitting in the Fox Sports 1 studio as an analyst for the second race that his Chevrolet, sponsored by Budweiser, had failed post-race inspection for the first Budweiser Duel. He will not, however, have to join StewartHaas Racing teammates Danica Patrick and Tony Stewart in the back of the field. Eric McClure, Michael McDowell, Joe Nemechek, Morgan Shepherd and Ryan Truex failed to qualify. Elliott, Labonte nominated for NASCAR Hall of FameDAYTONA BEACH Bill Elliott and Terry Labonte, a pair of Cup champions, are among the first-year eligible nominees for the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Drivers Mike Stefanik and Buddy Baker, and engine builder and team owner Robert Yates also were selected for nomination in their first year. The honorees were announced at Daytona International Speedway on Friday by a 22person committee of representatives from all over NASCAR. Mark Martin, winner of 96 races across NASCARs three national divisions, failed to make the ballot in his first year of eligibility. The ballot included only 20 nominees, down five from the first five classes. Five inductees will be elected for enshrinement by the NASCAR Hall of Fame voting panel, which includes a nationwide fan vote on NASCAR.com. Results will be announced May 21. The complete list of nominees for the Hall of Fame include: driver Red Bryon, owner Richard Childress, modified champion Jerry Cook, engine builder Ray Fox, owner Rick Hendrick, driver Bobby Isaac, former Daytona 500 winner Fred Lorenzen, car owner Raymond Parks, driver Benny Parsons, driver Larry Phillips, the first black driver to win a NASCAR race, Wendell Scott, track owner Bruton Smith, personality Curtis Turner, driver Joe Weatherly, and driver Rex White.

AUTORACINGCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, FEBRUARY22, 2014 B5 Last year we started a new car club in Citrus County for Corvettes, Camaros and Cadillac XLRs. XLRs were included because they are a close cousin to the Corvette, being produced in the same Bowling Green, Ky., plant as the Corvette, based on the Corvette C5 models Y platform (produced from 1997 to 2004) and using some of the Vettes interior features. In addition, there were no car clubs in Citrus County for the owners of the newer Camaros or XLRs and, even though there are several Corvette clubs in the county, we wanted a less formal club with no meetings for car enthusiasts who are serious about being active in the club. We currently have 33 members and are not trying to build a large club. We would prefer to have as few as 30 or 40 members who are real car enthusiasts and are active in the club than 100 members where only about 20 are active, as is the case with most car clubs. The majority of the cars in the club are Corvettes, but we would like to get more Camaro and XLR owners as members. The XLR is fairly rare, as just over 15,000 were produced between 2004 and 2009, so we dont anticipate getting many XLR owners as members. Although I have seen several XLRs around the county, currently there are only two XLR owners in the club. I think Chevrolet did a great job with the design of the new Camaro released for sale in 2010. It may not be for everyone, but the new body style is modern with a retro look of the classics. The interior is also reflective of some of the earlier Camaro designs. Its good to see that the American car manufacturers are keeping the retro-looking muscle and pony cars alive in the Camaro, Challenger and Mustang models. Also, the Corvette is still going strong as Americas sports car with the 2014 redesigned C7 generation model released late last year. Steve Lamb, owner of the Crystal Automotive dealerships, had graciously agreed to be the clubs sponsor when we started it last year. Steve is very supportive of local car clubs, as he sponsors a number of them. Since starting the Citrus Vettes & Camaros car club, some of the club events have been our first gathering at Steves Toy Barn in Homossasa, a tour of the Monster Transmission facilities in Brooksville, an open house for the club at Detroit City Customs in Ocala and a recent meet and greet event for members to get to know each other and their cars better at Citrus Hills. We try to plan club events involving car related activities each month or so and informal discussions on club related topics are part of those events. Anyone who owns a Corvette, Camaro or XLR and is a car enthusiast who wants to be active in a car club, should contact me for more information about membership.Car jokeA Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he pushed it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left. Amazing, he thought as he flew down I-75, pushing the pedal down even more. Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a Florida State Trooper, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. He pushed the Vette to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, What am I doing? Im too old for this! and pulled over to await the troopers arrival. Pulling in behind him, the trooper got out of his vehicle and walked up to the Corvette. He looked at his watch then said, Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a new reason for speeding a reason Ive never heard before Ill let you go. The old gentleman paused then said, Three years ago, my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back. Have a good day, sir, replied the trooper and left.

Open Wheel Modifieds return SEANARNOLD CorrespondentThe Open Wheel Modified class makes its debut in todays first Modified Six-Pack 50 event, joining Modified Mini Stocks, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, Pure Stocks and Pro and Rookie Hornets on todays racing card at the Citrus County Speedway in Inverness. Herb Neumann Jr. did double duty last season in collecting his first Open Wheel Modified championship (14th overall) while also winning another Super Late Model title. Neumann, of Inverness, rode his son Curtis Neumanns No. 01 modified, which scored a championship with Curtis in 2009, to three features wins in 2013. Gator Hise, just a sophomore at Citrus High School, finished the year strong in Modifieds with a pair of feature wins, including a wire-to-wire triumph in Novembers 40-lap finale. Troy Batman Robinson finished second in the Modified points standings a season ago, while Bushnell sprint driver Shane Butler came in third with two feature wins. Three-time Citrus champion Clint Foley appeared in championship form in the Modified Mini Stock opener on Feb. 1, as he delivered a wire-towire feature win while battling a lost exhaust pipe. Floral Citys Kevin Harrod came in second, and Clermonts Michael Lawhorn, who finished second in points to his buddy Chris Allen in 2013, took third. Curtis Flanagan showed hes still in control in his Street Stock division with a seasonopening heat and feature win last week. He has an early points lead on Floral Citys Tim Wilson, who finished second in last weeks feature, and Inverness Joey Bifaro, a thirdplace finisher. Bill Ryan sits atop the Mini Stock standings after two races with last weeks feature win, but faces heat from Tim Scalise, who is two points back after a pair of second-place finishes. In Pure Stocks, Bronsons Larry Welter Sr. outlasted Mike Autenrieth, of Inverness, in last Saturdays opener. On Feb. 1, Wesley Chapels Raymond Vann won the first Pro Hornet feature of the season, and was trailed by Tampas Mike and Jeff Lacey, respectively. Open Wheel Modifieds begin their qualifying laps at 5:30 p.m. Heat races for remaining divisions follow at 6 p.m. Grandstand gates open at 4 p.m., and are $13 for adults, $9 for students (age 12-17), seniors and military personnel with an ID. Children age 11 and under are $5 (children shorter than 42 inches are free). Family passes for two adults and two children or students are $30. Pits, skybox and annual passes are also available. For more information, see www.citruscounty speedway.com. SEANARNOLD CorrespondentLarry Welter Sr. is concerned about the disadvantage he might suffer from running radial tires on his No. 85 Pure Stock, as a recent change in rules at the Citrus County Speedway now allows the division to use racing tires which trade longevity for performance. The 55-year-olds win last Saturday suggests he neednt necessarily worry his racing savvy was enough to outrun a hard-charging Mike Autenrieth to prevail in the divisions season opener. (Autenrieth) had the race won until the caution came out (on lap 11), Welter recounted with a grin. And once we restarted in the double row, I beat him to the corner, and wasnt going to give him the underside he was going to have to take it on the high side. I wasnt the fastest car tonight, I just happened to be the one to stay down in front there. Living in Bronson, 60 miles from the Citrus County Speedway, Welter and his son Larry Welter Jr. more frequently race at the Bronson Speedway. But in the afterglow of the win, the elder Welter was looking forward to more potential trips to Citrus this year. I might make a couple more, especially now that Ive won, said Welter, who was preparing to race at Bronson the very next night. (Citrus is still) allowing the (Hoosier) D.O.T. radials (tires), which is what weve been running for quite a long time now. But now theyre starting to allow them to run the racing tires, and theyre a lot better than these radials. Theyre about the same price I pay for these, but thesell last twice as long as a racing tire. Theyre faster with the racing tires on. Welter had an ulterior motive for getting his family into racing back in 1996. My kid was in high school, and I felt it was better to put him behind the wheel of a racecar than let him go out on the highway, Welter explained. At least I knew where he was every night: he was working on a racecar instead of going out and doing drugs and drinking, and thats what the whole purpose was. It became a family affair. My son and I still race, and my daughter Shannon actually raced when she was in high school. Channel 10 did a high school sports program on her around the year 2000, which was pretty neat. Shes back into horses now. The Welters got their start at Dade Countys now-defunct Hialeah Speedway, which was featured in a 2012 award-winning documentary Hialeah Speedway: No Guts, No Glory. Their initial foray was in Enduro racing, which runs cheaper stock vehicles for long lap counts. Welters first win came in a 150-lap Enduro event, after which the speedway bought his ride from him. That tracks long gone, Welter said. We raced a car that was completely stock, basically a V8 bomber. (Pure Stocks) is as high a class as Im going to go. The ride he won Saturdays race in his No. 85 was built 10 years ago, from a 1986 Chevy Monte Carlo. He also races a No. 28, from an old Oldsmobile Cutlass, that belonged to his late brother Don, who died from cancer last August at age 53. I put his car back together to honor him, said Welter, who, as a longtime mechanic, does most of his own work on his cars. Its nice that Ive got a shop and a lift at the house. Ive got 35 years of experience working on automobiles. The Welters legacy, as both drivers and mechanics, is obvious at Bronson, where several cars on a given night have Welter Racing displayed across their windshields. Those are all cars that my son works on, said Welter Sr., who notched a couple of points championships at Bronson in 2008 and 2009. Weve been in it now about 17 years, so were the guys to knock off the totem pole. Welters raced all over Florida, on both dirt and asphalt tracks. He has his preference, but is confident he can still win on either terrain. I prefer asphalt, he said. Its a lot cleaner and a lot easier on these old bones. That dont mean I cant still win on the dirt, he added with a smile. After win last Saturday, Welter Sr. could be in line for more races in county BUTCH CRAWFORD/ Special to the ChronicleLarry Welter Sr., of Bronson, rolled to a Pure Stock triumph Saturday at the Citrus County Speedway in Inverness.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE RELIGION BRIEFS Nun gets nearly three years in prison NASHVILLE, Tenn. An 84year-old nun has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison for breaking into and defacing a storage bunker holding bomb-grade uranium in a peace protest at a Tennessee weapons plant. Sister Megan Rice was sentenced Tuesday, along with two men who were each sentenced to more than five years in prison. The three activists cut through three fences on July 28, 2012, and reached a storage bunker that holds the nations primary supply of bomb-grade uranium. They painted messages, hung banners and threw blood on the bunker wall. While officials claimed there was never any danger of the protesters reaching materials that could be detonated or used to assemble a dirty bomb, the break-in raised serious questions about security. Memorial held for snake-handling pastor MIDDLESBORO, Ky. A snakehandling pastor in Kentucky who died after being bitten by one of the serpents during a church service has been remembered fondly at a memorial service. Jamie Coots was known for his role on the National Geographic television reality show Snake Salvation. But a family friend remembered him Tuesday night for his great faith and tolerance of others. Bill Bisceglia of Middlesboro told Knoxville, Tenn., station WBIR-TV that the 42-year-old Coots didnt argue with people who didnt agree with him, but maintained his own beliefs until he died. People parked blocks away from the funeral home where visitation and a funeral service were held. Visitors said afterward the funeral home was full and lines were long. Coots was handling a rattlesnake when he was bitten Feb. 15. Cross display dispute goes before court CHICAGO The attorney for an Indiana church says its free speech rights were violated when a federal judge blocked the city of Evansville from allowing 31 crosses decorated by vacation Bible school students to be erected along the citys public riverfront. Evansville officials had approved the display requested by Westside Christian Church, but two local residents filed suit, arguing that the 6-foot-tall crosses along four blocks of city property would appear to endorse religion. Judge Sarah Evans Barker agreed and prohibited the display. On Tuesday, the churchs attorney, Bryan Beauman, urged the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn that ruling. But Gavin Rose, an attorney for the ACLU of Indiana, said the church had no right to appeal since the ruling was against the city, and the city didnt appeal. One of the appellate judges suggested that seemed an odd position to take for an organization that defends the First Amendment. College will remove Bibles from hotel DES MOINES, Iowa Bibles will be removed from guest rooms at Iowa State Universitys Hotel Memorial Union in Ames. The Des Moines Register said a guest complained to a watchdog group, the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The organization wrote to Memorial Union director Richard Reynolds on Jan. 29, asking for the Bibles to be removed. The groups attorney, Patrick Elliott, said that for a state-run university to provide a Bible to guests, that policy facilitates illegal endorsement of Christianity over other religions and over nonreligion. Reynolds responded last week and said the Bibles would be removed by March 1. The hotel occupies several floors in the Memorial Union and has 52 rooms. The Bibles will be placed in the Memorial Unions Browsing Library for lending. From wire reports Have you heard about the Baptist White Lie cake? Dont know if this is a true story or not, but it seems that Alice Grayson of Tuscaloosa, Ala., had signed up to bake an angel food cake for the Baptist Church Ladies Group bake sale Alice was known for her light, fluffy, perfect angel food cakes. However, this one came out disfigured and lopsided, and with no time to bake another, Alice panicked. Everyone expected one of her perfect cakes! So, she improvised and put a roll of toilet paper in the center of the cake to prop it up, then covered it with frosting and delivered it to the church for the bake sale before heading on to work. Meanwhile, she called her daughter with instructions to buy the toilet paper-filled cake so no one would know that her cake was less than her usual perfect. Except someone else got the cake first. Alice was beside herself with worry, positive that when word got out exposing her that she would be ridiculed and ostracized, especially at church among the ladies group. The next day, Alice attended a luncheon at the home of one of the Baptist ladies. This woman, a descendent of the founding families of Tuscaloosa, was kind of a snob and often made Alice feel judged. When it came time for dessert, the snobby lady made a huge production out of presenting a beautiful cake, which Alice recognized as the one she had brought to the bake sale. Just as Alice leapt up from her chair to confess, the mayors wife exclaimed, What an exquisite cake! The snobby woman, with cake knife in hand ready to present the mayors wife with the first slice, gushed and replied with feigned humility, Thank you. I baked it myself. I do love a good cake story. I also love a good gotcha story, especially when it involves snobby people other than me. But more than that, I love a good illustration that shows the folly of pretending, and we religious people are oh, so guilty of that, arent we? One of our biggest follies is pretending that were better than we really are holier and more humble, more obedient, more pious. I think it comes from a sense of insecurity. If Christ in me is supposed to transform me, then why do I still struggle with (name your sin addiction, anger, bitterness, lying, etc.)? If I dont see progress being made, then what? I want God to get good PR, so I pretend that Im better than I am, not in a snobby way, but in a scared way. I dont want people to think that God hasnt changed me, because he has just not as much as I had hoped he would. Because I dont want to be a bad advertisement for him, I pretend Im holier and more humble, more obedient, more pious, more whatever it is I think a Christian should be. I remember being interviewed by a woman who had called to determine my suitability as a retreat speaker for her church womens group. One of her questions was, How much time do you spend in the Word every day? My face felt hot and my stomach knotted because I knew the truth would expose me as a fraud. So, I forced a lighthearted laugh and said, Not nearly enough, and left it at that. The conversation ended shortly after that and I never heard from her again, to my relief. I want so badly to present a beautiful cake, but the truth is, any cake I make is going to have toilet paper inside propping it up, so to speak. I suspect thats true of yours, too. Maybe the better, even the best thing we can do for each other is to be honest and upfront about ourselves and not try to be better than we are. The Bible tells us to consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24), which I interpret as a kind and gentle way of relating to one another, a way of encouraging each other, of holding each other up, bearing one anothers burdens. My pastor often talks about us as the church walking to heaven together. Its a beautiful picture of true humility and honesty, of the stronger holding up the weaker among us and of no one despising anothers weakness. Maybe if we stop measuring ourselves against each other, and instead rely more on the grace of God to fill in the gaps, maybe we actually would become better. That deserves a piece of cake, dont you think?Nancy Kennedy is the author of Move Over, Victoria I Know the Real Secret, Girl on a Swing, and her latest book, Lipstick Grace.

Cakes, white lies, and the truth Nancy KennedyGRACE NOTES Associated PressVATICAN CITYNo glitzy gold, no rich velvet, no regal fur. Pope Francis pared down papal wardrobe of sensible black shoes and a white cassock so thin you can see his black trousers through it is a perfect fit for his call for simplicity and humility among his clergy. The popes personal style which earned him Esquire magazines Best Dressed Man of 2013 award and his broader message of sobriety will be put to the test Saturday when he inducts 19 prelates into the College of Cardinals, placing the three-cornered red silk biretta on the heads of the new princes of the church. For the festive occasion, cardinals are traditionally outfitted in scarlet from head to toe, from the silk skull cap to bright red socks, with a white lace embroidered surplice known as a rochet worn over the red cassock and underneath the mozzetta, or shoulder cape. But with the slum pope now calling the sartorial shots, fashionistas and Vaticanistas are wondering how his new cardinals who hail from some of the poorest places on Earth, including Haiti, Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast will dress themselves for their new role. What will make the difference at the consistory is how the cardinals interpret this traditional outfit, said Raniero Mancinelli, who has dressed cardinals and even popes since the early 1960s from his tiny shop right outside the Vatican walls. Will they splurge for the fancy, optional red silk cape favored by some first-world cardinals? Or will they go the route of the former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who according to clerical legend wore an altered hand-me-down cassock inherited from his predecessor for his 2001 consistory? The cardinals and priests are much more careful of shining and spend less on their clothes, Mancinelli told The Associated Press. The gilded miters are only in shop windows. This is a consequence of Francis. They want to show they are on the same pastoral page. Mancinelli, who is getting little sleep these days putting the finishing touches on outfits commissioned by several of the new cardinals, has some tips of what to watch out for today, when Francis will preside over the consistory formally welcoming the new cardinals. Immediately noticeable will be how much lace is on the rochet, once sewn by hand with a price-tag to match but now often machine made. This is the Francis effect, he said of the cheaper version as he ran his fingers over a prototype. Back in 2001 when the thenarchbishop of Buenos Aires was made a cardinal by Pope John Paul II, he wore a simple rochet with only two thin bands of embroidered lace. Another saving can come in the material used for the cassock itself. Once made out of precious silk and cashmere, the cassocks are now often synthetic: polyester for the red lining and territal, a synthetic wool blend. It costs less and also lasts longer, thats for sure, Macinelli said. Once handmade, the 33 red buttons (representing the years of Christs life) are now more often than not machine made. The cardinals red, it should be noted, isnt just a fashion Associated PressRaniero Mancinelli, who has been dressing popes since the 1960s, holds a a cheaper sample of machine-made lace material, while a more expensive handmade pieces is seen on the counter in his tailor shop in Rome. This is the Francis effect, he said of the cheaper version. Simple style favored by the slum pope influences clerical fashions See FRANCIS/ Page C2

Donations of nonperishable food items (especially single-serve items for transients) may also be brought to the walk. These items will be given to First Presbyterian Church for its food pantry. Call Kathy Burkett at 352-228-4860. statement: As Francis will recite when he places the biretta on each prelates head, red symbolizes a cardinals readiness to sacrifice his life for the church and to act with courage, even to the shedding of your blood. Cardinal watchers might also want to keep their eyes on the pectoral crosses worn by the churchmen: When the Jesuit Bergoglio became a bishop in 1992, a friend bought him the simple metal pectoral cross he continues to wear as pope (having eschewed the gold-plated one offered to him the night of his election). Bergoglios metal cross was purchased in Mancinellis shop and identical versions are on sale for about 330 euros today. Mancinelli said that ever since Francis became pope a year ago, there has been a bit of belt-tightening all around in clerical garb, due also to the global economic crisis. But there will always be exceptions. Across the Tiber river from the Vatican and Mancinellis small shop is Gammarelli, tailors by papal appointment and founded in 1798. Gammarelli famously prepares the three white outfits small, medium and large that a newly elected pope picks according to his size to wear out onto the balcony of St. Peters after his election. Sixth-generation Lorenzo Gammarelli said Francis call for sobriety which Esquire credited with subtly signaling a new era (and for many, renewed hope) for the Catholic Church hadnt really affected business at all. Those who were simple before remain simple today, he said. And vice versa. Speaking in front of the old-world shop window decorated with the finest of scarlet cardinal garb, including that fancy red cape, he acknowledged: Simplicity is not here.C2SATURDAY, FEBRUARY22, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLERELIGION First Presbyterian Stephen Ministry Congregation 000GWWG Hwy. 44 E @ Washington Ave., Inverness Sunday Services Traditional 8:00 AM 11:00 AM Casual Service 9:30 AM 5th Sunday of Any Month Combined 10am Sunday School for all ages 9:30 AM Nursery Provided Fellowship & Youth Group Sunday Evening Web Site: www.fpcinv.org Podcast: fpcinv.com Church Office 637-0770 Pastor James Capps THE SALVATION ARMY CITRUS COUNTY CORPS.

C6SATURDAY, FEBRUARY22, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Aldous Huxley, an English author who died in 1963, said, An unexciting truth may be eclipsed by a thrilling lie. The truth in this deal is, I think, exciting, containing as it does a thrilling lie. What should happen in four hearts after West leads the diamond jack? When North passed, East opened with a weak two-bid, showing six good diamonds and some 6-10 high-card points. (In the second position, you should have a textbook hand for a pre-empt because your partner probably has a decent collection.) Then South bid what he hoped he could make. He knew he might miss a slam, but that was not likely, given partners initial pass. South seemed to have only three losers: one diamond and two clubs. But declarer also knew that Wests opening lead was a singleton. However, East did not. South, trying to hide the truth from East, made a thrilling lie when he smoothly dropped his diamond king under Easts ace. Now East, believing declarers card, shifted to his singleton spade. South won with his ace, drew two rounds of trumps, cashed his other top spades, crossed to dummy with a heart, discarded a loser on the spade jack, and claimed. If South had played his low diamond at trick one, East would have given his partner a diamond ruff at trick two. (He ought to lead the nine, his middle card, because he does not know which suit he wants his partner to lead at trick three.) West will then cash the club ace, under which East will signal enthusiastically with his eight. Another club to the king would defeat the contract.

He divorced his wife of 53 years because he fell in love with me and wanted the rest of his life to be happy. They had not shared a bedroom since the last of their kids was born. Ted has always put his children before me. They dislike me because of what I did to their mother. Well, their father did it, not me. I pushed him away for more than a year before realizing how terrible his marriage was. (One of his kids told me.) Ted repeatedly has lied to me about his children. He takes trips to visit them without me and doesnt tell me hes leaving until the day before he flies off. He makes all the arrangements behind my back. He once left me for a month and said he wanted a divorce because they told him he should get one. Ted and I have talked about this, and he swears he will change, but he never does. Lately, his children have called me terrible names, and he never says a word in my defense. I have never done or said anything against these grown children. I have never been a part of his family, and I guess I never will. At 78, youd think he would appreciate having a loving wife and understand that his life is with me now. I dont expect him to stop seeing his kids, but he needs to put our marriage first. We tried marriage counseling twice, and each time he quit, saying the counselor was biased against him. Is there any hope? Tired of Being Number Eight Dear Tired: We dont know what can be salvaged. If you backed off and told Ted he should see his kids on his own and youll stay out of their lives entirely, would he, in return, tell you of his plans and insist that his children treat you with respect? If the two of you can handle that, you may be able to stay together and enjoy the times that dont involve the kids. But there are no guarantees. Sorry. Dear Annie: I am a psychologist, and my husband is a psychiatrist. You give excellent advice, but there is one area where you could be more helpful. When people seek low-cost mental health services, you often print a list of places where they might find help. Unfortunately, that list might not be useful in smaller, more rural areas. While we have several colleges, none have graduate departments that offer counseling. The YMCA and YWCA closed with the recession, and local churches offer pastoral counseling only to their own congregants. The main low-cost mental health services offered in our community are through the county. This includes individual and family counseling, psychiatry and crisis intervention. We also have a 24hour phone hotline to access emergency services. They can also direct people to an outpatient clinic at the local hospital. In addition, Mental Health America (formerly the Mental Health Association) offers referrals, classes and support groups. If people are seeking low-cost help, please recommend that they contact their local county government. Karen J. Goodman, Ph.D., Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Dear Dr. Goodman: Consider it done. We appreciate the information and will definitely add county services to the list. Dear Annie: I think most families have at least one negative relative who puts a damper on holidays. My late mother-in-law hated the whole season and did her best to depress the rest of us. Ill skip the details of what happened over the years. She told me once that the reason she didnt like Christmas was that she had never gotten what she wanted. I asked her what she wanted. She replied, I dont know.
