Bowe Bergdahl for five senior Taliban prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay, halting at least temporarily what was considered the best chance yet of securing the 27-year-old soldiers freedom since his capture in June 2009. In a terse Pashtolanguage statement emailed to The Associated Press, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid blamed the current complex political situation in the country for the suspension. A U.S. official with knowledge of the talks said the cause of the suspension was not the result of any issue between the United States and Taliban. He declined to elaborate and spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to journalists.

Were you spanked as a child? What effect did it have on you? QUESTION OF THE WEEK Lucy Sealy Payson This is the biggest problem with children today, lack of respect and discipline. It is what the United States is badly in need of. Ashley Myers Barrett I think its a very gray area. I believe people are out of control and there is no respect these days because people dont have any fear. At the same time I dont know that I would feel comfortable having another person spank my children. Thats my job if I choose to. You will have the extremes on both sides which is why its a tough topic. ... Skip Brady Yes, yes and YES! I believe I am a more disciplined person who respects proper authority. It cannot be my way always. Cheryl Capo I was seldom spanked but needed it when I did get spanked. And even just a threat of a paddling once at school was enough for me. Linda LoVaglio Smith Parents, yes. Teachers, NO! Dee Bennett I got spanked; I respect authority and understand that for every action there is going to be a reaction. Kids need to have a little fear in them. Right now we have a couple of generations of out-of-control hooligans with no respect for anyone or anything. I cant imagine for the life of me why anyone would want to be a teacher. ... Sheila Caine I was spanked but not to the point of bruising. But now days there are too many bad drugs that make parents too violent and have bad judgment, so no spanking. Use time out and take away their favorite thing and stick to it. Contribute!

New BGC executive director works to empower youths ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerLike many Citrus County residents, Cindi Fein is not a native. She and her husband, Rick Fein, moved to Citrus County in 2011. With a degree in journalism and public relations from Northern Illinois University, Fein quickly landed a position with the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce. However, her heart was still searching for its missing beat empowering children in Citrus County. In February, Fein was hired as the executive director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County.

FEIN: We want to enable all young people, especially those who need us the most, to reach their full potential of being productive, caring, responsible citizens. We do that by following our core beliefs: we offer a safe place to learn and grow, encourage ongoing relationships with professional adults in the community, offer lifeenhancing programs and character-developing experiences, as well as hope and opportunity. CHRONICLE: Citrus County is said to be a very giving community. There are a lot of organizations that strive to help the youths in our community. What makes yours unique? FEIN: What truly makes us unique, in my mind, is that we focus solely on the youth. There are so many wonderful organizations but they also address the other layers of the issue. They address job readiness, food, housing and things like that. We focus strictly on the youth. All of it is important for the outcome, but what I enjoy is having a very focused event. It is strictly for the good of the youth. This is teaching them how to be productive citizens, give back to a community and be comfortable in their own skin. With all of the bullying in this day and age, it is really hard to be a teenager. We want to help them. ... CHRONICLE: So people think you are in competition for the YMCA?

Young Elvis at Old Courthouse STEPHEN E. LASKO/For the ChronicleSixteen-year-old Elvis impersonator Cote Deonath performs Sunday during a gospel breakfast at the Old Courthouse in Inverness. Deonath was introduced to the Elvis phenomenon when, at the age of 2, his grandmother Joellyn Cote set him in front of a television and played the Elvis movie Follow that Dream, which was shot at various locations in Citrus County. His first performance was two years later, and hes been performing ever since. His mother/manager, Dee Dee Deonath, is expecting about 20 performances in 2014, some of which will be in the Memphis area. Sundays Elvis concert was not just about Elvis and his music. The annual Elvis programs bring in funds for preserving and restoring the Old Courthouse, which is now 102 years old. Last years proceeds went to fix leaking windows and repair water damage, and the previous year saw the floors restored to their original circa 1912 maple wood finish.

Tourists at Elvis Presleys birthplace got a surprise bonus a glimpse of the singers ex-wife, Priscilla Presley making her first visit since the last time she saw Elvis, in the early 1970s. She was given the keys to the city Saturday, and said she was taken aback the first time Presley showed her his childhood home. There were no additions when I was here last, there was just the little house he was born in, she said. Coming here for the first time I was so shocked to see the place. Two rooms! I dont know how they lived and with his grandmother and father and, of course, Gladys. Presley was 13 when his parents, Vernon and Gladys, moved to Memphis, Tenn., in 1948.

The Warner Bros. animated film bested Relativity Medias Days to Kill and Sonys Pompeii on their opening weekends. The Lego Movie, featuring the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks and MorganFreeman, earned $31.5million, according to studio estimates Sunday. The domestic total has passed $183 million. Heading into full-fledged franchise territory with a sequel set to release in May 2017, The Lego Movie is the highest grossing film of 2014. Its been really tough for any of the newcomers to displace Lego, said PaulDergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. They had such a great release date that put them in this perfect position to dominate the marketplace for several weeks. For Lego to earn $31million in its third weekend, that would be impressive in its first weekend for any film in the first quarter. Pompeii, Sonys boiling gladiator drama starring Game of Thrones star KitHarington, took the third-place slot with $10million. There was a fairly even gender split for the Constantin-financed film, with the audience breaking down as 52 percent male and 48 percent female. The films slot in the top five was steered mostly by viewers younger than 30. Next weekend, the action releases continue as Liam Neesons Non-Stop hits theaters. Lupita Nyongo nominated for a best supporting Oscar for her role in Years a Slave, also appears in the film. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. 1.The Lego Movie, $31.5 million. 2.

Associated PressMIAMI Roughly 1 million uninsured Floridians who repeatedly heard affordable health insurance was just around the corner for them thanks to President Barack Obamas new law are finding a harsh reality theyre too poor to qualify. The Florida House voted last year not to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act because of fears that it could eventually cost the state hundreds of millions annually, meaning those earning below the poverty line, $11,490 for an individual or $23,550 for a family of four, arent eligible for tax credits through the online marketplace. Without those tax credits, most people living below the poverty line cant afford coverage. In Florida, generally only children, pregnant women, the disabled and single parents or caretakers of underage children are eligible for Medicaid, the governments free health plan for the poor. Its the hardest thing to explain to a consumer that theyre falling in this gap, said Juanita Mainster, a Miami counselor who helps consumers sign up for health insurance. She and other counselors estimate only 30 percent of applicants at their Miami office end up signing up for a health plan because they cant afford it. Christina Coello, a 27year-old full-time law student with a pre-existing medical condition, hasnt had insurance for seven years. So when I heard about Obamacare, I thought this is a really good thing for people that have preexisting conditions. But when Coella tried to enroll, she learned she was about $2,500 shy of qualifying for a tax credit, making the premiums impossible to afford on her part-time paralegal salary. Yet her meager salary is still a bit too much to qualify for Medicaid. Its very frustrating because (the Florida House) doesnt want to cover people who are supposedly lazy. Its not only lazy people who need insurance. A lot of students fall into that category, said Coello, who has a 7-year-old son. Health advocates are doing what they can so consumers dont leave appointments feeling hopeless. Florida CHAIN and navigator groups like the Epilepsy Foundation of Florida, which received a federal grant to sign people up for health coverage, are referring consumers to local health departments and community health centers that treat patients on a sliding scale and offer discounted drug programs. Theyll keep saying, Im poor. I should qualify for something. And theyre right, they should, but the fact is this is a state that chose not to expand Medicaid, said counselor Adrian Madriz. CHAIN and Florida Legal Services are handing out educational material at community centers, colleges and libraries so consumers can share their frustrations with lawmakers. The League of Women Voters of Florida has also launched a campaign to educate business leaders, and cultivate allies among local Chambers of Commerce, trying to convince them that Medicaid expansion is an economic stimulus opportunity for the state. Vice President Joe Biden made a push for Medicaid expansion in South Florida this month on his way to a fundraiser. He stopped at S&S Diner in Coral Gables where he met with a group of local women who have benefited from the Affordable Care Act. He noted that Florida has led the way with enrollment in the federal exchange with nearly 300,000 signing up, but added those figures could have been higher if Gov. Rick Scott had accepted the Medicaid dollars. He can join us if he wants, Biden said. effect in October to restrict public comment to the beginning of the meeting, public hearings, public workshops and late agenda items. Under those rules, the public could not comment on every main motion before the board, as had been the previous practice. The new ordinance would allow the public to comment on those motions. At 2 p.m., the board will discuss adopting a civility and decorum code for public meetings including a noninterference clause for county employees in the performance of their work. The code of conduct would apply to members of the public, county employees and elected or appointed officers. Anyone who violates the code could be removed from the meeting and such other actions as may be appropriate. At 5:01 p.m., the County Road 491 Overlay Plan will be presented for adoption and implementation. The plan modifies seven chapters of the countys comprehensive plan to allow for widening C.R. 491 to four lanes in the area between State Road 44 and County Road 486. It includes the use of development agreements for the county government to enter into agreements with developers. According to county documents: It creates a master visionary plan via a suggested conceptual network of interconnected roadways and associated regional infrastructure. It is a longrange plan that the county may consider for determining future public services. In other business: County Administrator Brad Thorpe will present information about a 1993 lease agreement with AmeriGas, a propane company, and request direction for drawing up a new lease between the county and the private corporation regarding its use of county owned property in Inverness. Thorpe will recommend that staff continue to pursue an agreement for back-payment of rent and to defer work on the new lease as the property may be swapped with the city of Inverness for a parcel the city owns near Inverness Airport. An executive summary within the agenda presents some details confirming that collection of rent of about $650 a year on the original lease and renegotiating a rent increase to $850 a month failed to take place. Thorpe recently told the Chroniclethat the lease must be made whole for the land exchange with the city of Inverness to transpire. Commissioner Scott Adams will introduce discussions on several issues: Hollinswood Harbor/Port Citrus, C.R. 491 Medical Corridor/private developers and Inverness Airport Industrial Park/Animal Shelter/Bus Transportation Facility.

organizations has the ability to serve all of the youth that need help here in the county. We are actually talking about doing some partnership work down the road, which will show the community that we are not in competition. We truly just want to help the youth. We each have our areas that we excel at. CHRONICLE: What has been your personal journey that has led you to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County? FEIN: While I was working for the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce, I was given the opportunity to participate in its Leadership Citrus program, which I did in 2013. That started my personal journey, which has been phenomenal. I learned a lot about myself. The two things that I learned that are really important to me are respecting our seniors and empowering children. I was divorced when my children were 5 and 7. I didnt have a Boys & Girls Club or a YMCA in my community. I had to rely on friends in the neighborhood. I learned very early that it really does take a village to raise children. When I moved to United Way, I was able to focus on more of that nonprofit sector and what we have here and what was important to me. When the position became open at the Boys & Girls Club, it was a dream come true. I truly feel that I am exactly where I am suppose to be. CHRONICLE: How are you going to utilize your background in your work with the Boys & Girls Clubs? FEIN: What the BGC really needs right now is leadership. Leadership is about influence. I think that my passion and my personal story about why it is important to empower children will show. We teach them about why it is important to make decisions. Here in Citrus County, I hear that our children go to school then to college and never come back. I want to help children understand that they can stay here, as there are careers available. I also want to get the BGC back on the map. We need to be visible. Not because we are in competition with the YMCA, but because we are all working for the good of those children, empowering our youth, make our community grow and for them to sustain us. CHRONICLE: What ages qualify for the Boys & Girls Clubs and what activities do they partake in? FEIN: We take ages 5 to 18. Once they are here, we offer very unique programs. Most of the programs have been designed by our national organization. They fall under what we call Smart Moves. They are designed to teach healthy living habits, build self confidence and teach children how to make decisions. We also use the Florida-based Street Smarts to teach the children about their decision-making. Street Smarts is a gang prevention program and we do anti-drug and antialcohol teaching. CHRONICLE: What is the cost for parents? FEIN: We call them members. There is a $25 membership fee. You then pay for the programs that your children utilize. For instance, we offer before-school care, which has a cost per week. We also offer an after-school care, which is a cost per month. The spring and winter camps are different prices, also. Last year, the entire winter break cost parents less than $100. Sometimes the parents cannot afford all of that and they have to rely on assistance. We apply for grants. We are partially funded by Kids Central Inc., Florida Department of Education and United Way of Citrus County. We have business partnerships but a lot of our money comes from the hearts and souls of community. FOOD PANTRIES St. Annes Anglican Church 9:30 to 10:30a.m. daily in the administration building.

Page A8MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2014 Setting record straight on Meadowcrest officeIn response to a recent letter to the editor from Ronald Kitchen Jr., published Feb. 10, I agree Commissioners should discuss decisions openly. I also believe individuals running for office have a responsibility to provide facts. After reading Mr. Kitchens letter, I hope to clarify some facts here. There is a lot of misinformation that continues to be circulated about the new county office location in Meadowcrest. The Meadowcrest facilitys central location has already been serving more county residents compared to its previous location in the city of Crystal River or, we believe, if it had moved to the mall location. The countys decision to relocate to a central area is similar to the strategic move Publix made a few years ago to be closer to its customer base. The facts surrounding our agreement with the county are as follows: The 10-year lease we obtained from the county to locate to our building was submitted as a proposal along with proposals provided by the then-current landlord, the mall and city officials. The county informed us discussions were occurring with the city of Crystal River to provide some alternatives. Why none of the alternatives to the Meadowcrest location were submitted to the county in writing should be a question for the city and/or Mr. Kitchen. Prior to any improvements being made to the Meadowcrest building, the county, through its outside counsel, had two appraisers inspect the property. Afterward, the option price was negotiated. Tenants improve landlords space all the time to accommodate their needs. Most landlords will tell you renovations may or may not add value to the property, as the next tenant may have different needs. It was our understanding the county obtained a loan for $2 million, but not all of the money was needed, and the balance not used was paid back to the lender. Included in the costs were desks, workstations, phones and computers. Im sure the county staff would have provided Mr. Kitchen with the actual breakdown of the renovation costs had he asked. The lease rate provided was based on warehouse rates, which are much lower than typical office rates. The option, provided at no cost, provides the county with the opportunity to purchase the building should it desire. Mr. Kitchens comment as to the value of the Meadowcrest building compared to the sale price of the mall is not relevant. The mall seller was distressed, the location is not central, and the mall building is in a state of disrepair. By relocating to Meadowcrest, the county has a centrally located facility in a park-like setting. The countys option to purchase not only allows them to combine more of their satellite facilities, but it also gives them the benefit of owning the first-class improvements that it has already made. Mr. Kitchens statement commissioners would be buying back the value added by their own improvements is not correct. The purchase price was set prior to improvements being added. Purchasing the building allows the county to protect the investment in the improvements made. No matter where the county would have relocated it would have had to expend the dollars to make the interior space fulfill its needs and the needs of the staff and the citizens of this county. Additionally, the fiveyear strategic plan from the experts Goldsmith & Kirkman for the Economic Development Council indicated this building is the first choice as a location for future business. Our goal at Gulf to Lakes Associates has always been to raise the bar for quality residential, commercial and industrial space in our county, with a keen eye toward aesthetics. The feedback I have received on the new facility for the county offices from county employees and residents has all been positive. While just the landlord, we are pleased to be in some way associated with a facility that works as well as it does.Stanley C. OlsenDr. Wana helped when others wouldntThe last week in January, one of our young girls was seen by a doctor for a second round of infection to an ingrown toenail. The doctor suggested she be seen by a podiatrist for further evaluation and treatment. I called every podiatrist office in Citrus County and they would not see her because she has Medicaid and they did not do pro-bono work. The one office that took Medicaid would not take straight Medicaid, only HMO. I finally reached Dr. Wana in Crystal River, and after explaining our situation, they agreed to see her. Camp E-Nini-Hassee sends a big thank-you to Dr. Wana and his staff, who helped us pro bono and provided complete treatment and follow-up care to our young girl. We appreciate the kindness and generosity we experienced in their office. Kenia Lugo, R.N. Eckerd, E-Nini-Hassee Floral City WASHINGTONThis years most important election will not occur in November, when more than 90 million votes will be cast for governors and national legislators. The most important election, crucial to an entire regions economic well-being and to the balance of the nations political competition, has already occurred. Last week, at a Tennessee factory, workers rejected representation by the United Auto Workers union. The 712-626 vote an 89 percent turnout against unionizing the 3-year-old Chattanooga Volkswagen plant was a shattering defeat for the UAW, for organized labor generally, and for liberalism nationally. It was a commensurate victory for entrepreneurial federalism. Sixty years ago, 35 percent of Americas workforce was unionized, almost entirely in the private sector. Today, 11.3 percent is unionized. About half (49.6 percent) of this minority are government workers whose union dues do much to elect their employers. UAW membership has plummeted as far and fast as Detroit has from 1.5 million in 1979 to about 380,000 in 2012. In 2011, UAW President Bob King said, If we dont organize these transnationals, I dont think theres a long-term future for the UAW. For 30 years the UAW has tried and failed to unionize a transnational a factory making foreign-brand vehicles in the South. The union may never have a better chance than it had in Chattanooga. The company, whose board includes representatives of a powerful German union, feigned neutrality but actually worked in close collaboration with the UAW. The union was given access to the plant, a workroom and other facilities, while groups opposing unionization were barred. It is commonly, and carelessly, said that Washington bailed out the automobile industry. Actually, government bailed out two of the three companies in one of the two U.S. auto industries the UAWorganized one. The other industry, located in the South and elsewhere Americans making 30 percent of the vehicles Americans purchase did not need rescuing because it does not have UAW presence, which helped ruin General Motors, Chrysler and their headquarters city, Detroit. UAW officials blamed last weeks failure on outside special-interest groups, which describes the UAW in Chattanooga. In a characteristically shrill and clumsy intervention before the voting ended, Barack Obama accused Tennessee Republicans of being more concerned about German shareholders than American workers. He missed the detail that the shareholders company favored the UAW. The UAW, too, blamed Tennessees Republican politicians. Well. VW received $577 million in tax breaks and other incentives to locate in Chattanooga, so Tennessee officials surely were entitled to speak about how unionization might harm the investment already made and might diminish the likelihood of additional help. Nowadays, however, liberalism responds to its unpersuasiveness by trying to get government to silence (as with the IRS) or punish (it is the National Labor Relations Boards turn) speech by liberalisms critics. So, the UAW may ask the NLRB to overturn the vote because of unfair labor practices, which supposedly amount to the fact that the UAW was not the only speaker during the debate before the vote. AntiUAW billboards noted Detroits current prostration, and Sen. Bob Corker called the UAW a Detroit-based organization. Its headquarters, Solidarity House, is in Detroit. For 26 months, the NLRB has lacked a legal quorum, three of its members having been given recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess. Soon the Supreme Court probably will rebuke Obama for this. But given his administrations culture of lawlessness, until the court rules, the NLRB might tug its forelock and do as the UAW demands. In November, a prescient UAW organizer said the union would probably lose in Chattanooga if workers were granted a secret ballot election. That is, the UAW favored a card check faux election, whereby unionization is approved when a majority of employees, confronted individually by union organizers, sign a card. The UAW could not prevent a proper election, but with the NLRBs permission the campaign was compressed to nine days. This minimized the time for UAW opponents to make their case. Despite the UAWs attempt to do for the South what it has done to Detroit, the South can continue to practice entrepreneurial federalism. Capital is mobile. It goes where it is welcomed and stays were it is welltreated, so states compete to create tax and regulatory environments conducive to job creation. Liberals call this a race to the bottom. Conservatives call it a race to rationality. George Wills email address is email@example.com.

When Michael Lusk left the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) after 18 years, the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge Complex lost an ally deeply familiar with the people, place and history behind Three Sisters. When Lusks second-in-command Boyd Blihovde also departed, it was like a death in the family. Stepping into Lusks shoes are two men: James Burnett and Andrew Gude. Theyre pretty big shoes and they only got bigger after Lusk left: His departure coincided with a revamping of the FWS hierarchy, with regional managers responsible for additional territories amid a beleaguered and shrinking staff. Frankly, were uncertain how FWS reshuffling is supposed to result in better service for citizens or stewardship of lands, but whats done is done: Our hopes are now vested in the stewards. Gude, formerly responsible for the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge, assumed management of the Crystal River refuge after Lusk left. Gude thrust himself into the role, becoming an active participant in community discussions about the policy puzzle that is the management of a very popular, pristine slice of land that offers people an experience they literally cant get anywhere else in the world. When Burnetts reassignment was announced in late January, he told the Chroniclethat despite being a regional manager responsible for nine refuges spanning the miles from Tallahassee to Crystal River, Two of my main priorities are the personnel issues and Three Sisters Springs. Burnett tackled both at once, naming Gude the new manager of the Crystal River refuge. Lets be clear: Both of these men have more on their plates than their predecessors, and much smaller utensils. The agency is a protector of vulnerable, vital natural resources, and at this point it is unequivocally underfunded. Its fortunate for Citrus County, then, that both men see the value of Three Sisters Springs not just to the parks system but to the people, and understand the fragility of the situation: The springs must and will be widely and easily accessible, but we collectively have a singular, eternal obligation to preserve their virginal state and protect the population of manatees that flocks to the springs for shelter and draws ever-larger crowds each year. As we approach the semicentennial anniversary of the Cross Florida Barge Canals conception, its encouraging to think that conservation dominates our current conversation. We welcome Gude and Burnett to our beautiful back yard, and ask that citizens lend them their full support theyll need it more than ever.

video released in December, footage seen as proof of life demanded by the U.S. Bergdahl is believed to be held in the border regions between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Mujahid said the indirect talks with the U.S. had been mediated by Qatar, where the Taliban established a political office last June. The video of Bergdahl was part of the negotiations which were to lead to the eventual transfer of the five Taliban leaders held since 2002 in Guantanamo Bay. The leadership of the Islamic Emirate has decided to suspend the process for some time due to the current complex political situation in the country, the statement read. The process will remain suspended without the exchange of the prisoners until our decision to resume. Mujahed did not elaborate on what political situation in Afghanistan led to the suspension of talks or say when they might resume. Afghanistan is in the middle of a presidential campaign ahead of an April5 election. Two-term President Hamid Karzai cannot run again for office under the Afghan constitution. The U.S. State Department has refused to acknowledge the negotia tions, but the U.S. official previously told the AP that indirect talks were under way. Col. Tim Marsano, spokesman for the Idaho National Guard, said he spoke Sunday with Bergdahls family and said they declined to comment further. The five Taliban detainees at the heart of the proposal are the most senior Afghans still held at the prison at the U.S. base in Cuba. Each has been held since 2002. They include: Mohammad Fazl, whom Human Rights Watch says could be prosecuted for war crimes for presiding over the mass killing of Shiite Muslims in Afghanistan in 2000 and 2001 as the Taliban sought to consolidate their control over the country. Abdul Haq Wasiq, who served as the Taliban deputy minister of intelligence and was in direct contact with supreme leader Mullah Omar as well as other senior Taliban figures, according to military documents. Mullah Norullah Nori, who was a senior Taliban commander in the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif when the Taliban fought U.S. forces in late 2001. He previously served as a Taliban governor in two northern provinces, where he has been accused of ordering the massacre of thousands of Shiites. Khairullah Khair khwa, who served in various Taliban positions including interior minister and as a military commander and had direct ties to Mullah Omar and Osama bin Laden, according to U.S. military documents. His U.S. lawyers have argued that his affiliation with the Taliban was a matter of circumstance, rather than ideology, and that he had backed away from them by the time of his capture. Mohammed Nabi, who served as chief of security for the Taliban in Qalat, Afghanistan, and later worked as a radio operator for the Talibans communications office in Kabul and as an office manager in the border department, according to U.S. military documents. In the spring of 2002, he told interrogators he received about $500 from a CIA operative as part of the unsuccessful effort to track down Mullah Omar.

Associated PressCULIACAN, Mexico After fruitlessly pursuing one of the worlds top drug lords for years, authorities finally drew close to Joaquin El Chapo Guzman using a cellphone found at a house where drugs were stored. The phone belonging to a Guzman aide was recovered with clues from a U.S. wiretap and provided a key break in the long chase to find Guzman, officials told The Associated Press on Sunday. Another big leap forward came after police analyzed information from a different wiretap that pointed them to a beachfront condo where the legendary leader of the Sinaloa cartel was hiding, according to a U.S. government official and a senior federal law enforcement official. When he was at last taken into custody with his beauty-queen wife, Guzman had a military-style assault rifle in the room, but he didnt go for it. A day after the arrest, it was not yet clear what would happen next to Guzman, except that he would be the focus of a lengthy and complicated legal process to decide which country gets to try him first. The cellphone was found Feb. 16 at a Culiacan house Guzman had been using. By early the next day, the Mexican military had captured one of Guzmans top couriers, who promptly provided details of the stash houses Guzman and his associates had been using, the officials said. At each house, the Mexican military found the same thing: steel reinforced doors and an escape hatch below the bathtubs. Each hatch led to a series of interconnected tunnels in the citys drainage system. The officials said troops who raided Guzmans main house in Culiacan chased him through the drainage pipes before losing him in the maze under the city. A day later, on Feb. 18, Guzman aide Manuel Lopez Ozorio was arrested and told investigators that he had picked up Guzman, cartel communications chief Carlos Manuel Ramirez and a woman from a drainage pipe and helped them flee to Mazatlan. When he was finally in handcuffs, the man who eluded Mexican authorities for more than a decade looked pudgy, bowed and middle-aged in a white button-down shirt and beltless black jeans. Now 56, he had successfully eluded authorities since escaping from prison in 2001 in a laundry truck. In Mexico, he is likely to face a host of charges related to his role as the head of the cartel, which is believed to sell cocaine, marijuana, heroin and methamphetamine in some 54 countries. Grand juries in at least seven U.S. federal district courts, including Chicago, San Diego, New York and Texas, have already issued indictments for Guzman on a variety of charges. Yoga Associated PressA couple of dozen hardy souls Sunday braved temperatures in the teens to practice yoga in the snow on the Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis.

Bush says his focus on a new initiative helping returning veterans also aids him emotionally. The George W. Bush Institute and Syracuse University are undertaking a study on issues affecting veterans who have served since Sept.11, 2001. Bush described on ABC News This Week how his spirits are always lifted when he meets with veterans. He said many in the U.S. are incredibly comfortable and yet have a woe is me mentality. He says thats not the case with veterans, who ask how they can continue to serve. Bush said the mission of his institute is to help society serve veterans more efficiently. For example, its working to show employers how various military experiences can translate into marketable job skills.Lotteries lift state budgets IOWA CITY, Iowa The scores of losing players in last weeks $425 million Powerball jackpot did more than take an extremely long shot at getting rich. Their ticket purchases also helped fund a small but increasingly important part of their states budgets. Changes in the nationwide Powerball and Mega Millions games have led to some of the worlds largest jackpots in the past two years, boosting sales. Fueled by the growth of those games and steady expansion of other offerings, many state lotteries reported record revenues last year. That means a little more money for the state services that lotteries help fund, including education and public safety.Mo. spelling bee out of wordsKANSAS CITY, Mo. Two Missouri students who went toe-to-toe for 66 rounds in the annual Jackson County spelling bee arent quite finished after event organizers ran out of words for the contest. The Kansas City Star reported 25 students started the championship round Saturday, but only two remained after 19 rounds. From there, fifth-grader Sophia Hoffman of Lees Summit and Kush Sharma, a seventh-grader from Kansas City, buzzed through the list of words provided by the national bee, as well as 20 others plucked from the dictionary. At about 2 p.m. five hours after the contest started bee officials decided not to pull more words from the dictionary and instead decided to continue the competition March 8 at an undetermined library location.

Holocaust survivor dies at age 110LONDON Alice HerzSommer, believed to be the oldest Holocaust survivor, died at age 110 on Sunday, a family member said. The accomplished pianists death came just a week before her extraordinary story of surviving two years in a Nazi prison camp through devotion to music and her son is up for an Oscar. Herz-Sommer died in a hospital after being admitted Friday with health problems, daughter-in-law Genevieve Sommer said. We all came to believe that she would just never die, said Frederic Bohbot, a producer of the documentary The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life. There was no question in my mind, would she ever see the Oscars. The film, directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Malcolm Clarke, has been nominated for best short documentary at the Academy Awards next Sunday.Israeli prisoner dies in gunbattleSHARON PRISON, Israel Israeli special forces raided a prison in central Israel Sunday, killing a notorious prisoner who was serving time for a gruesome murder carried out in the U.S. Police identified the inmate as Samuel Sheinbein, an American who fled to Israel after murdering and dismembering another man in Maryland in 1997. Police special forces rushed to this prison in central Israel after Sheinbein stole a weapon and shot three guards, wounding two of them seriously. He then barricaded himself inside the compound where a standoff ensued, with counter-terrorism units dispatched to the scene. The inmate then opened fire again, wounding three more guards, before the forces shot him dead, a police spokesman said. Sheinbein, 34, was tried in Israel in 1999, two years after he fled to the country and successfully sought refuge from extradition, enraging Maryland authorities and briefly threatening U.S. aid to the Jewish state. An Israeli court sentenced Sheinbein to 24 years for his slaying and dismemberment of 19-yearold Alfredo Enrique Tello Jr. Sheinbein was 17 at the time of the killing.

Ukraine parliament head takes presidential powers Associated PressKIEV, Ukraine With an ally claiming presidential powers Sunday and the whereabouts and legitimacy of the nominal president unclear, newly freed opposition icon Yulia Tymoshenko may feel her chance to take Ukraines leadership has come. But even among protesters who detest President Viktor Yanukovych, Tymoshenko sparks misgivings. The former prime minister, who was convicted of abuse of office in a case widely seen as political revenge by her arch-foe Yanukovych, is a polarizing figure in a country staggering from political tensions that exploded into violence. Admired and even adored by many for her flair and fiery rhetoric, Tymoshenko is regarded by others as driven by intense ego and tainted with corruption. Just a day after she left the hospital where she was imprisoned, demonstrators outside the Cabinet of Ministers expressed dismay that she could be Ukraines next president. One of them held a placard depicting Tymoshenko taking power from Yanukovych and reading, People didnt die for this. Ukraine is in a delicate state of uncertainty since Yanukovych and protest leaders signed an agreement to end the conflict that left more than 80 people dead last week in Kiev. Soon after signing it, Yanukovychs whereabouts are unclear after he left the capital for his support base in eastern Ukraine. Allies are deserting him. Russias next moves in the crisis were not immediately clear, but Washington warned Moscow not to intervene militarily. The newly emboldened parliament, now dominated by the opposition, struggled to work out who is in charge of the country and its ailing economy. Fears percolated that some regions might try to break away and seek support from neighboring Russia, particularly the Crimean peninsula where Russias Black Sea naval fleet is based. Ukraine is deeply divided between eastern regions that are largely pro-Russian and western areas that widely detest Yanukovych and long for closer ties with the European Union. Yanukovych set off a wave of protests by shelving an agreement with the EU in November, and the movement quickly expanded its grievances to corruption, human rights abuses and calls for Yanukovychs resignation. The parliament on Sunday assigned presidential powers to its new speaker, Tymoshenko ally Oleksandr Turchinov, who said top priorities include saving the economy and returning to the path of European integration, according to news agencies. Bills tackle backlog of untested rape kits Associated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn. With possibly hundreds of thousands of rape kits untested across the country, a number of states are proposing legislation to address backlogs that in at least one case dates back nearly three decades. In Memphis, Tenn., alone, there are more than 12,000 untested rape kits going back to the 1980s, according to the New Yorkbased Rape Kit Action Project, which has been tracking the backlogs nationwide. In the entire state of Texas, there are about 16,000 untested kits collecting dust in police evidence rooms. Tennessee is among at least 17 states with proposals that range from requiring law enforcement agencies to inventory their rape kits to analyzing them in a certain amount of time. Three states Colorado, Illinois and Texas have passed laws that mandate a statewide accounting of untested rape kits. Most of the other states proposals favor the inventory measure that would require all law enforcement agencies that store rape kits to count the number of untested kits. Rape Project spokeswoman Natasha Alexenko estimates there are about 400,000 nationwide that fall into that category. Until we enact this kind of legislation where were counting them, we really have no idea, said Alexenko, a rape victim whose rape kit was finally tested after nearly 10 years, and her attacker arrested after a match was found. Last year, Congress officially recognized the backlog of untested rape kits as a national problem in passing the Sexual Assault Forensic Evidence Reporting Act, or SAFER, which seeks to provide data on the number of unsolved rape cases awaiting testing and establish better standards for the tracking, storage and use of DNA evidence in sexual assault cases. The federal government is also providing funding to help cover the costs for testing the kits, which usually contain swabs, evidence envelopes and information sheets detailing the examination. They cost at least $500 to test, a process that involves several steps, including determining whether theres sufficient material from which a subsequent DNA test may derive a reliable sample.

If it wasnt for some brand new sports, the medal count would be paltry. Yet U.S. Olympic officials insist this was one of the countrys best Olympics ever. I couldnt be more proud of our Olympic team, said Larry Probst, chairman of the U.S. Olympic Committee. A bronze in the four-man bobsled on a day Russia put an exclamation point on its games gave the U.S. 28 medals in Sochi, putting it behind just the host country in total medals. But Norway won more gold than the U.S. (11-9) and the 28 total medals were nine less than Americans won in a record-setting performance four years ago in Vancouver. That total five less than won by Russia would have been far less if U.S. athletes didnt win nine medals, including five gold, in sports that made their debut in these games. To make matters worse, Canada won more gold medals than its much bigger neighbor for the second Olympics in a row. We came here to compete, said Alan Ashley, managing director of sport performance for the USOC. We came here with a great team and theyve done a great job. Things dont always shake out exactly the way you think theyre going to, but the surprises are sometimes way more surprising than the disappointments. Among the disappointments were the biggest U.S. stars going into the games.

Howell edged Paul Mueller of Naugatuck, Conn., by a pound.Collins to become first openly gay player with NetsJason Collins became the NBAs first active openly gay player Sunday, signing a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets. Collins joined the Nets for their game Sunday night in Los Angeles against the Lakers. The 35-year-old center revealed at the end of last season he is gay, but he was a free agent and had remained unsigned. With a need for another big man, the Nets turned to the 7-foot Collins, who helped them reach two NBA Finals in the early 2000s. The decision to sign Jason was a basketball decision, general manager Billy King said in a statement. We needed to increase our depth inside, and with his experience and size, we felt he was the right choice for a 10-day contract. Collins has played 12 NBA seasons, including his first seven with the Nets, when they were in New Jersey and Jason Kidd was their point guard. Kidd is now the Nets coach and Collins has been a teammate of several other current Nets. Jason told us that his goal was to earn another contract with an NBA team. Today, I want to commend him on achieving his goal. I know everyone in the NBA family is excited for him and proud that our league fosters an inclusive and respectful environment, Commissioner Adam Silver said.Baseball set to announce platecollision rulePORT CHARLOTTE Baseballs new guidelines regarding home plate collisions will be out today. MLB executive vice president Joe Torre made the revelation Sunday after wrapping up a series of meetings to discuss expanded replay with the 15 teams that conduct spring training in Florida. Torre is optimistic the replay system that debuts this season will function as intended, helping umpires get potential gamechanging calls correct while not disrupting the rhythm of play with lengthy delays. The former New York Yankees manager did not provide specifics about the plate-collision rule except to say baseball wants to curb intentional contact initiated by base runners. From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Associated PressMARANA, Ariz. Jason Day never stopped believing he would win the Match Play Championship, even in the midst of so many shots by Victor Dubuisson that simply defied belief. With his ball at the base of a cactus, Dubuisson took an all-or-nothing swing though the sharp needles and a TV cable and incredibly hit it to 4 feet to save par. Seemingly out of it on the next playoff hole, the 23-year-old Frenchman somehow whacked a wedge through a desert bush and rocks and onto the green for another par. Day finally ended the madness Sunday on the 23rd hole with a pitch to 4 feet on No. 15 for birdie. Mon dieu! It was the first time the championship match went overtime since the inaugural year in 1999 at La Costa, when Jeff Maggert chipped on the second extra hole of a 36hole final. That was like watching paint dry compared to the show Dubuisson put on. Day, with his first World Golf Championship, walked away with his second PGA Tour title that will take the Australian to No. 4 in the world. This tournament might better be remembered for Dubuissons magical escapes. Vic, man, he has a lot of guts, Day said. He has a great short game straight out of the cactus twice. For a 23-year-old kid, hes got a lot of game. Were going to see a lot of him for years to come. Even the great Seve Ballesteros would have saluted this performance. Two holes down with two holes to play, Dubuisson rapped in a 15-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole and then took advantage of Jason Day celebrates on the 23rd hole after winning his championship match against Victor Dubuisson during the Match Play Championship golf tournament Sunday in Marana, Ariz.Associated Press Day overcomes foe for Match Play win See DAY/ Page B3 Worth the wait Associated PressDale Earnhardt Jr. (88) and Greg Biffle (16) race during the Daytona 500 auto race Sunday night at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach. Earnhardt Jr. ends long race drought to win rain-delayed Daytona 500 Associated PressDAYTONA BEACH Through rain and wrecks, on Daytonas longest day, this was a drought Dale Earnhardt Jr. was determined to end. NASCARs most popular driver won the Daytona 500 on Sunday night for the second time a decade after his first victory while snapping a 55-race losing streak dating to 2012. The victory ended a streak of futility at Daytona International Speedway, where he finished second in three of the previous four 500s. Winning this race is the greatest feeling that you could feel in this sport besides accepting the trophy for the championship, said Earnhardt, who climbed from his car in Victory Lane and hugged every member of his Hendrick Motorsports crew. I didnt know if Id ever get the chance to feel it again and it feels just as good. As he crossed the finish line in his No. 88 Chevrolet, the few who withstood a rain delay of 6 hours, 22 minutes screaming their support, Earnhardt euphorically radioed his crew, This is better than the first one! He was met by Rick Hendrick after his victory lap, and the team owner climbed into the drivers window for a ride to Victory Lane. Rain stopped the race about 45 minutes after it began for a delay of more than six hours. When it resumed, Earnhardt dominated at the track where his father was killed in an accident on the last lap of the 2001 race. But it got chaotic as it neared the conclusion, with 42 lead changes and four multicar accidents. An accident with seven laps to go triggered by pole-sitter Austin Dillon, driving the No. 3 Earnhardts fathers number making its return to the Daytona 500 for the first time since 2001 set up a final twolap shootout to the finish. Earnhardt got a great jump past Brad Keselowski on the restart, and had teammate Jeff Gordon behind him protecting his bumper. But Denny Hamlin came charging through the field and Earnhardt suddenly had a challenger with one lap to go. Then an accident farther back in the field involving former winners Kevin Harvick and Jamie McMurray brought out the caution and the win belonged to Earnhardt.

But one new star was born. Teen skiing sensation Mikaela Shiffrin won gold in the womens slalom and liked it so much that she was already making plans for a record-setting performance four years from now in South Korea. Right now, Im dreaming of the next Olympics (and) winning five gold medals, which sounds really crazy, Shiffrin said the day after her win. Im sorry I just admitted that to you all. Shiffrins win in her first Olympics couldnt make up for the collapse of the U.S. speedskating team, which was blanked in old suits and new. Speedskaters were kept off the medal podium for the first time since 1984, despite a switch midway through the games back to their old suits. Worst Olympics ever, two-time gold medalist Shani Davis said. While the U.S. failed to win a medal on the Sochi big oval, skaters from the Netherlands piled on with eight golds and 23 medals overall in speedskating. If you look at speedskating results we werent the only nation that got smoked by the Netherlands, said Scott Blackmun, CEO of the USOC. Things werent much better on the ice for U.S. figure skaters, who won a bronze in the new team event but were shut out individually. Charlie White and Meryl Davis took a bit of the sting out of that performance with a gold medal in ice dancing. Meanwhile, both the mens and womens hockey team left disappointed. The women appeared on their way to winning gold before collapsing in the final minutes against Canada, while the men couldnt score against either Canada or Finland, which handed the U.S. an embarrassing 5-0 loss in the bronze medal game. On the slopes, Shiffrin and Ted Ligety both win gold and the U.S. took five medals, making for a respectable showing. But the U.S. was shut out in the new sport of womens ski jumping where Americans had looked promising, and there were no medals in either cross-country skiing or the biathlon, sports that Norway dominated. In addition to winning more golds than the U.S., Norway with a population of just 5 million finished just two medals behind in the total with 26. Ashley said the U.S. medal haul was lower partly because other countries are becoming more competitive in winter sports. He said the team would have liked to have won more medals, but called their performance excellent anyway. If there is reason to be more optimistic heading toward the games in South Korea in 2018, team officials said it was the strong performance in new sports like ski and snowboard slopestyle and ski halfpipe. But replicating that success in extreme sports in future Olympics will be difficult, said Steve Roush, the former chief of sport performance for the USOC. The rest of the world is catching up, he said. a rare lapse by Day, who bogeyed the 18th hole with a three-putt from 50 feet on the upper tier. The Frenchman saved par from the bunker to force extra holes. It looked like it would be over quickly. From the first fairway, Dubuisson went so far long that bounced hard off the back of the green and into the desert, the ball nestled at the base of a cholla. During regulation, he would have taken a penalty drop. In this case, he felt he had no choice. He stepped up to the ball and, with nothing to lose, swung away. The club got caught on a TV cable, and the ball scooted up the slope of 3-inch grass and onto the green. It was reminiscent of the shot Bill Haas pulled off at East Lake from shallow water on the 17th hole. This was better. And it came with an encore. On the next extra hole, the par-5 ninth, Dubuisson tugged his shot left of the green, left of the bleachers and into a desert bush surrounded by rocks. He took another crack at it, and the shot came out perfectly through thick grass and onto the green. Day could only laugh, though he had every reason to believe this was not his day. After matching bogeys and pars on the next two holes this time from the green grass the match ended on the 333-yard 15th hole when Dubuissons drive strayed too far right into side of a hill, leaving him an awkward pitch. Im disappointed because I made some terrible shots, Dubuisson said, ignoring the two that were as close to a miracle as golf allows. Day won $1.53 million. Lost in all the theater was that he never trailed over the final 53 holes of this fickle tournament. USAContinued from Page B1 Associated PressAtlanta Braves third baseman Chris Johnson is taking the same approach to the 2014 season he used one year ago, when he was fighting for a starting job. Braves Johnson neatly fills in at third base Associated PressKISSIMMEE Chris Johnson remembers donning his Chipper Jones T-shirt and parking himself in front of the television to watch Atlantas star third baseman play when he was growing up. Now hes taken over the job left vacant when Jones retired after the 2012 season. And he still delights in saying: Im the starting third baseman for the Atlanta Braves. I try to say it as much as possible, he said with a huge grin. He first met Jones while in college at Stetson University where his father, Larry Jones, was an assistant baseball coach. Johnson has been thrilled hes been able to deepen his relationship with the eight-time All-Star. Hes been real great, Johnson said, adding that taking his place is a dream come true. When I got traded over here from Arizona, he reached out and we chatted and he gave me some pointers and stuff. It was really cool to have him on my side, he said. When Jones retired after a stellar 19-year career, the Braves were in the market for a third baseman. When Johnson was traded from the Diamondbacks in January 2013, he certainly wasnt guaranteed the starting job. He quickly distanced himself from Juan Francisco, his competition at third, and became the man tabbed to fill the huge cleats of jones. I try to think about it sometimes and I try not to sometimes, he said. Ive got to pinch myself a little bit thinking Im playing third base because Ive known Chipper to be the third baseman for the Atlanta Braves my entire life. So its a little strange sometimes. But then sometimes I have to focus on myself and know that Im not Chipper Jones and try to just do what I can do. What he did was come through with the best season of his career. He hit .321 and finished second in the National League batting race. The 29year-old led the team with 34 doubles, was second with 165 hits and had 12 homers and 68 RBIs. The Braves arent putting pressure on him to repeat his big performance from last season the NL East champions just want him to continue to be a productive bat in the lineup. Hes got that capability in him, manager Fredi Gonzalez said. But I think somewhere in between last year and his career numbers, which are pretty darn good batting average-wise, I think if we get that, thats a pretty good Chris Johnson year. Johnson was a fourth-round draft pick by Houston in 2006 and made his debut as a September call-up three years later. He hit .308 in 94 games the following year, and became a solid starter for the rebuilding Astros until he was traded to the Diamondbacks near the deadline in 2012. He was happy to get a fresh start with Arizona, but a bit troubled when he was dealt again at the end of that season. I was like, Man I dont want to be that guy who bounces around everywhere, he said. I want to stay with a team. DAYContinued from Page B1
B4MONDAY, FEBRUARY24, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Oscar Wilde said, One should always play fairly when one has the winning cards. That is reasonable. But when one is in potential danger, falsecarding at the right moment may make the difference between success and failure. In this deal, how should South play in three no-trump after West leads his fourth-highest heart and East puts up the queen? South starts with six top tricks: four spades and two hearts. There are four more available in clubs. Is there any danger? Yes, if East has the club ace and thinks to shift to a high diamond, with West having that ace hovering over declarers king, South could lose one club and at least four diamonds. However, declarer does have the advantage that defenders always return partners suit in no-trump. Still, how can declarer push East firmly in that direction? South must take the first trick with his heart king, not the ace. To win the first trick in notrump with an ace is an advertisement that you are not worried about that suit, because if your only high card were the ace, you would have made a holdup play, not taken the ace until, probably, the third round of the suit. Then declarer plays a club. It would be almost psychic of East to find the diamond-10 shift. Finally, note East is unlucky that he does not have ace-third of clubs. Then he could hold up that ace until he could get a signal from his partner. Here, West would immediately discard a heart to tell his partner that they cannot run the suit.

My wife and I were at his home for dinner, along with my daughter and several others. We were talking about TV, and my son mentioned a show where a guy does all kinds of things to save money. He said to my daughter, If you think your daddy is cheap, you should see this guy. I said nothing at the time because I didnt want to spoil the occasion. But evidently, he and my daughter both think I am cheap. Annie, I put both of them through college, and so they dont owe any money. I worked three jobs so my son could attend a prestigious university out East. They have never wanted for anything. Its been three months, and Im still hurting. Any advice? Disappointed Dad Dear Dad: No one wants to be thought of as cheap, especially by his own children. But we dont think your son or daughter intended to be hurtful. What you consider sensibly frugal, they undoubtedly recall as you saying no to their innumerable requests for toys, gifts, vacations, etc., and how pleased you were when you saved a penny here and there. But please dont let this fester, as it could damage your relationship with your children. Talk to your son and tell him how much his comment hurt you. We hope hell be more aware of your feelings in the future. Dear Annie: I have been a widow for three years. My husband was my first love, and we were married for 36 years. I have now met a man who seems similar to my late husband. I really like Don, but I worry that he only wants a caregiver. When we first met, I asked whether he had any health issues, and he said no. But after our second date, he started saying our relationship wasnt moving fast enough. After a month, Don ended up in the hospital with a mild heart attack, for which he needed a stent. A week later, he was back in the hospital. I think Don lied to me about his health and is looking for someone to be a nursemaid. I like him, but Im not willing to put forth that kind of effort for a man who has lied to me. I dont mean to sound callous, but I dont want to take care of a stranger. It is different when you have loved someone for a while, as opposed to walking into a relationship with someone who already has health problems. Am I doing the right thing by breaking it off, or should I go along and see what is ahead for us? I really am confused. Dont Want To Be Saddled So Soon Dear Dont: Heart attacks are generally unexpected, so unless Don was aware that he had heart problems, he may not have been lying about his health. And over time, health problems are more likely to arise in any relationship. However, we are more concerned that Don seems to be rushing things. You should never feel pressured to move faster than what makes you comfortable. If you enjoy Dons company, theres no reason not to continue seeing him, but make it clear that you are in no hurry. If he wants a caregiver, he should look elsewhere. Dear Annie: I read the responses to I Need Nice Clothes, Too, about largesize clothing selections. My complaint is about petite sizes for mature women. There is no selection at all. Its as if we are being discriminated against because we are short. We like to dress fashionably. We wear coats, pajamas, slacks and dresses, but few stores carry petite sizes, and fewer still have clothing suitable for anyone over 12. Im sure its the same problem for tall women.

The Canadian hockey team, champions again, looked as if it could have gone long into the night if need be. The Sochi Games completed their 17-day run Sunday with Canadas 3-0 victory over Sweden in the mens hockey final, the last of 98 gold medal events. It came on a day when Russia captured the medals race and IOC President Thomas Bach lauded the host city for its amazing transformation. Only three sports were on the schedule, with the other gold medals coming from Russian crosscountry skier Alexander Legko, and Alexander Zubkov leading the way for the hosts in the four-man bobsled. The fifth and sixth doping cases surfaced, involving NHL and Sweden star Nicklas Backstrom and Austrian cross-country skier Johannes Duerr. All that awaited was the athletes last celebratory dance on the field at the closing ceremony and the flag handover to Pyeongchang, South Korea, the next winter host.HockeyThe Canadians won gold for the third time in the last four Olympics. Jonathan Toews scored in the first period and captain Sidney Crosby scored his first goal of the tournament in the second. Chris Kunitz also scored and Carey Price made 24 saves for Canada. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 33 shots for the injury-depleted Swedes.Cross-country skiingAlexander Legkov got down to work in a hurry. He led a Russian sweep of the mens 50-kilometer cross-country race. He was followed by Maxim Vylegzhanin and Ilia Chernousov. That assured Russia of finishing with the most medals. It was also the host nations first gold in the sport in Sochi. This is priceless, Legkov said. Its more valuable than my life.BobsledAfter struggling these last years, Alexander Zubkov set things right. He drove Russia to victory in the four-man sled, adding to his two-man title in Sochi. He is the sixth pilot to sweep those events at an Olympics but the first to do so in his home country. Steven Holcomb, the 2010 Olympic champ, won bronze to give the U.S. seven sliding medals in Sochi, tops among all countries. Oskars Melbardis of Latvia took the silver. Germany had no medals in the four-man for the first time since 1968.DopingSochi had six doping cases; Vancouver had one four years ago. As IOC President Thomas Bach sees it, thats good news the drug cheats are getting caught. The number of the cases for me is not really relevant, he said. Nicklas Backstrom, who plays for the NHLs Washington Capitals, tested positive for a substance found in allergy medication, Swedens Olympic Committee said. Austrian cross-country skier Johannes Duerr was cited for the blood booster EPO, the most serious of the Sochi cases.MedalsThe arithmetic was clear: Russia is king of the medals, be it total or gold. The host country finished with 33 medals overall and 13 gold. Russia started the day tied with Norway for the most gold. Its the first time Russia has topped both medals tables since the breakup of the Soviet Union. The U.S. won 28 total, including nine gold. Norway had 26 medals, 11 of them gold. Of the Netherlands 24 medals, 23 came in speedskating. Associated PressCanada goalkeeper Carey Price and teammate Dan Hamhuis celebrate their 3-0 win over Sweden in the mens gold medal ice hockey game at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
