AmeriGas owes county $14,000 MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Citrus County commissioners will negotiate an agreement with AmeriGas Propane Inc. over an unpaid 22-year, $650 annual lease that has erupted into a heated debate between Commissioner Scott Adams and the countys top two officials. The board on Tuesday voted 4-1 to allow County Administrator Brad Thorpe to negotiate with AmeriGas to partially pay the $14,000 it owes on property it leases from the county on Forest Drive in Inverness. Adams voted no. Commissioners also directed Thorpe to defer discussions on a new lease to the city of Inverness after the city and county complete a land swap. The county is giving the AmeriGas property to the city for expansion of its Whispering Pines Park trails. The county is receiving some city property near the Inverness Airport for a roadway to a new fixed-based operator station. Much of the discussion, however, had little to do with correcting the lease. Instead, Adams urged the board to not approve anything until the Florida Department of Law Enforcement completes an inquiry of allegations he has made regarding Thorpe and his friendship with David Langer, a former AmeriGas salesman. Whats the big rush? Adams said. Thorpe and County Attorney Kerry Parsons said that the FDLE has suggested nothing criminal took place. FDLE has indicated this appears to be civil in nature, Parsons said, referring to a FEBRUARY 26, 2014Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best CommunityVOL. 119 ISSUE 203 50 CITRUS COUNTYClose call: Top-ranked Gators survive at Vanderbilt /B1 www.chronicleonline.com HIGH72LOW54Cloudy, with a 60 percent chance of rain.PAGE A4TODAY& next morning WEDNESDAY INSIDE INDEX Classifieds . . . .C9 Comics . . . . .C8 Community . .C5, C6 Crossword . . . .C7 Editorial . . . .A12 Entertainment . . .A4 Horoscope . . . .A4 Lottery Numbers . .B3 Lottery Payouts . .B3 Movies . . . . . .C8 Obituaries . . . .A6 TV Listings . . . .C7 Controlling conduct: Women in combat: Politics of survival:CR council votes to ban open containers of alcohol near the entrance to Three Sisters./ A3 According to a survey, only a few Army women say theyd want a combat job./ A14 Students at the Academy of Environmental Science stage a version of Survivor./ C1 Accused child killers to plea Alyssia Skinneraccused of starving and abusing her infant daughter.

PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe acquisition of 73 Sweetbay stores by Winn-Dixie parent company Bi-Lo Holdings is on hold in some communities, including Dunnellon. Last May, Bi-Lo announced it had entered an agreement with the Delhaize Group to acquire Sweetbay and two other supermarket chains. In October, Bi-Lo announced once the transaction closes it will retire the Sweetbay banner name, and those stores will convert to the Winn-Dixie banner to reduce overlapping market footprints. Conversion was expected to begin in the first quarter of 2014. However, the Federal Trade Commission determined the acquisition would harm competition in several local markets in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Tuesday, the FTC announced a settlement with Bi-Lo that preserves grocery store competition in 11 local geographic markets in those three states According to the FTCs complaint, Bi-Los proposed acquisition of the Delhaize stores would likely harm consumers Dunnellon Sweetbay may be sold to IGA Supermarkets A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThis week, three detained Citrus County mothers will learn their fates when they face Circuit Court Judge Richard Ric Howard about harming their children, two of them fatally. First up, on Wednesday morning, Chelsea Maree Huggett, 23, of Hernando, is expected to change her plea in the death of her of her 2-year-old daughter Aliyah Branum. Authorities allege Huggett fatally harmed the toddler because the girl wouldnt stop whining. Detectives said Huggett killed Aliyah by shaking her, beating her head against the wall and head-butting her. Authorities initially charged Huggett with first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse, but the eventual charges ended up being murder III and negligence. Prosecutor Pete Magrino said Tuesday Huggett will likely be sentenced Wednesday if she goes through with her plea change and Adams, Thorpe clash over lease FTC tries to keep competition intact See SWEETBAY/ Page A2 MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCitrus County Commissioner Scott Adams holds up paperwork to make a point Tuesday afternoon as he and the commission discuss a dispute about the payment of the property lease for AmeriGas in Inverness.

through higher prices, diminished quality and reduced service levels in Dunnellon and 10 other communities. Dunnellon would go from three fullline retail grocery stores to two. The proposed order settling the FTC charges requires the merged Bi-Lo/Delhaize to sell 12 stores. Subsequently, BiLo has agreed to sell the Dunnellon Sweetbay to Rowes IGA Supermarkets. Rowes currently operates five supermarkets in the greater Jacksonville market. The order states this remedy will restore the competition that otherwise would be eliminated in these markets as a result of the acquisition. The agreement is subject to public comment for 30 days, continuing through March 27, after which the FTC will decide whether to make the proposed order final, withdraw it or modify it. Mitchell J. Katz, FTC spokesperson, said the commission will respond to all public comments and the comments will posted online. He said it is uncertain how long the process might take. To comment visit www.ftc.gov and type Bi-Lo in the search bar. Feb. 14 email an FDLE official send to Adams. Adams said Parsons was wrong. He noted FDLE sent agents to Citrus County on Monday, spoke to county officials and left with documents he provided regarding the lease. Im appalled by Ms. Parsons comments, Adams said. Yesterday, FDLE came to the courthouse and got records. Your information is totally inaccurate. On a day when commission Chairman John JJ Kenney repeatedly banged his gavel to keep Adams on topic, Adams kept his allegations regarding the lease to a minimum. Instead, he said FDLE would take months to complete an investigation. Thorpe and Parsons, however, said FDLE agents have suggested no such thing. I met with FDLE yesterday, Thorpe said. They could not find any probable cause for criminal activity. Adams said he didnt believe it. So in five minutes they investigated 20 years? Are you serious? Adams said. This is going to take months. An FDLE spokeswoman said Monday that the agency should decide by next week whether to open an investigation or not.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.A2WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL /STATE 000H9IN Board Certified American Osteopathic Board of Ophthalmology and Otorhinolaryngology Board Certified National Board of Examiners for Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons Ward Eye Center 8490 W.

LEASEContinued from Page A1 SALEContinued from Page A1 Associated PressGREEN COVE SPRINGS Three northeast Florida sheriffs deputies have been disciplined after an arrest mix-up sent the wrong teenager to jail. The then-17-year-old spent 35 days in the Clay County jail after being charged as an adult in a sexual battery case. One deputy also faces a suspension and a transfer. The Florida Times-Unionreported that in a disciplinary letter, Sheriff Rick Beseler wrote that because of that deputys incompetence, an innocent man was arrested for an offense that he did not commit. The deputies actually had been seeking another student at the same high school with the same first and last names but a different middle name. The first teen was arrested in late August after a girl younger than 12 years old told investigators that on or around Halloween 2012 she had sex with an older boy she identified only by name. Authorities said investigators failed to confirm their suspects identity with a photo lineup and went looking for a suspect with the name reported by the girl. Beseler said his department has policies in place intended to prevent these types of wrongful arrests. When the teen went to court in early October and received documents with the details of the charges against him, he realized authorities were confusing him with someone else. The correct suspect was eventually arrested and has a hearing scheduled for next month on a sexual assault charge. Teen spends 35 days in jail after mistaken arrest

Springs alcohol ban passes first hurdleA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The city council approved on first reading, the first in a series of measures officials believe will help curb unruly conduct on the water entrance to Three Sisters Springs and begin to turn the tide in crowd control on the congested canal. Council members voted 3-0 on Monday to ban open containers of alcohol near the water entrance to the popular springs. Council members Paula Wheeler and Robert Holmes were absent. The ordinance gets one more hearing at the next council meeting before it becomes law. The alcohol ban stems from several recommendations from the Three Sisters Springs Working Group, which was charged with coming up with a solution to overcrowding in the canal fronting the water entrance. The ordinance defines the areas boundaries as Cutler Spur Boulevard to the east, Kings Bay Drive to the north and the west, and Paradise Point Drive to the south. An open container means any receptacle or container immediately capable of being consumed from by a person, or which has been opened, or a seal broken, or the contents of which have been partially removed. Alcoholic beverages include distilled spirits and all beverages containing 0.5 percent or more alcohol by volume. The law, if passed after second reading, will fine first violators up to $50 and subsequent fines can cost a violator up to $300. Janis Huegel, and her husband Jack, live down the canal from the congested spot and spoke in support of the measure. However, Janis wondered why the potential initial fine at $50 was so low. She wanted to see stiffer fines, in line with other popular recreation spots like Silver Glen, where alcohol use was banned and fines are up to $500. City attorney George G. Angeliadis said officials did look at other places that have instituted open container laws, but thought they were a little too high. Overcrowding at the water entrance of the manatee-watching area has become untenable, according to visitors and residents of the area. The working group was formed last year to come up with some solutions and their suggestions included: Work with enforcement agencies to provide a presence to promote desired behaviors. Establish a mooring system which should help free up the channel near the entrance and provide safety for swimmers. Creating a kayak tie-up area east of the water entrance. City officials also voted to pursue a court order in circuit court to move a boat they contend has been illegally moored in a cove in Kings Bay since 2009. Officials say Premier Construction LLC, owner of the boat, has created a dangerous condition by mooring the vessel at its current location. A hearing officer ordered the vessel moved within five days or the city can go ahead with plans to have it towed and stored. A couple of weeks ago, the city council authorized funds for this effort and according to officials the owner has not heeded the hearing officers order.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Fulford died in February 1992 along Interstate 10 when a booby-trapped package exploded after a routine traffic stop of Howell. The bomb was intended for a Marianna woman who lived in an apartment complex with her baby.ClearwaterMan charged in mothers deathA Clearwater man used his hands, a box cutter and a sledgehammer to kill his mother while his 7-year-old daughter was in the house Monday, authorities said. Matthew Edward Lohoski used a variety of weapons to kill his mother, Deborah Susan Lohoski, Clearwater Police Spokesman Rob Shaw said in a news release Tuesday. Lohoski choked his mother until she was unconscious, left her outside and went to check on his daughter, making sure she was playing video games in another room, according to the news release. He returned to his mother and found her still breathing, Shaw said. It was then he used a pocket-style box cutter to cut her throat and her armpit area, where he was attempting to sever an artery, Shaw wrote in the news release. Lohoski then went to check on his daughter again, officials said. When he returned to his mother, he tried choking her with a zip tie, then hit her in the head three times, Shaw said. Deborah Lohoskis body was found in the backyard of the house. Authorities said Lohoski dropped his daughter at a friends house before driving to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, where he told an officer that he had just killed his mother. Sheriffs deputies called Clearwater police to investigate. Lohoski was being held Tuesday at the Pinellas County Jail on a charge of first-degree murder. Jail records did not show whether he had an attorney.

Foundation board members said they couldnt justify spending $179,000 for the Center for Breast Cancer Excellence when Hospital Corporation of America is expected to start its 50-year lease in a few months. Some of this stuff can wait until people with deeper pockets show up, board Chairwoman Sandy Chadwick said. Hospital officials, led by chief medical officer Dr. Charles Nutinsky, had envisioned the center as a location to combine numerous services that women must now visit numerous offices. He said the equipment is already available in the imaging center in the same building. He said the center also would significantly reduce the time between a mammogram, results and treatment. Board members were stung by the cost. One proposed supplier, for example, charged $11,200 for 14 chairs. Eight hundred bucks for a chair? said board member Dr. Constantine Toumbis. Nutinsky said a focus group, comprised mostly of women, helped design the center so that it was comfortable, inviting and easy to navigate. We had cheaper chairs, he said. Thats the focus group thought they were: cheaper chairs. Board member Robert Collins noted that Citrus Memorial has studied a breast-cancer center for three years and it could wait a few more months. Board member Joe Brannen agreed. It doesnt make a whole lot of sense, he said, with HCA right around the corner.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCity of Crystal River officials are one hearing away from banning alcohol use on the water fronting the water entrance of Three Sisters Springs. Monday, the council voted to advance the ordinance through to the next and final reading. Officials hope to curb unruly conduct among recreational boaters and control overcrowding at the popular destination. Sandy Chadwick Lawmakers to talk water funding, not policy Associated PressLAKE OKEECHOBEE In the marshes along the western edge of Floridas largest freshwater lake, the water is clear, wading birds burst into the sky ahead of an approaching airboat, and theres no sign of the turmoil that elevated water levels caused last summer. The political waters in Tallahassee, though, are roiling over Lake Okeechobee and other hydrological woes, from Floridas Big Bend to the states signature springs to a treasured estuary along the Atlantic. Residents, lawmakers and environmental advocates want the state to do more to better manage its water resources. However, the speaker of the House has said no major change to Floridas water policies is likely to come out of the legislative session that begins March 4. Rep. Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, told reporters earlier this month that any water issues that come up this year will deal with funding, while policy initiatives and long-term water management plans likely will be deferred until next year. His office declined comment last week on those statements and referred questions about water issues to the legislator expected to take over as speaker in 2015, House Majority Leader Steve Crisafulli, R-Merritt Island. Most of what were looking at right now is projectrelated, not policy-related, Crisafulli said. The projects up for discussion include a cleanup in the Indian River Lagoon and finding ways to store more water north of Lake Okeechobee, which would alleviate pressure on the lakes decrepit dike and reduce the amount of water released into sensitive ecosystems west and east of the lake, Crisafulli said. Last year, water levels in the lake rose to dangerous levels during a very rainy wet season, prompting the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which controls the dike and locks around the 730-square-mile lake, to release large amounts of fresh water into the Indian River Lagoon and the Caloosahatchee River. The excess water and the pollution it carried were blamed for steep declines in the health of those ecosystems. Residents on either side of the lake loudly called for the water to stop; corps officials said they were working to do so while managing the risks that high water levels pose to the earthen dike, parts of which date back to the 1930s. It got so contentious that Republican Gov. Rick Scott added the lakes federal management to his list of complaints against President Barack Obamas administration. State senators investigating the problems have recommended shifting control of how and when water is released from the lake from the corps to the state, which would require congressional action. The Senate select committee led by Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, also recommends $220 million in state funding to improve water quality and expand storage reservoirs around the lake. In November, voters will consider a conservation amendment that could set aside $10 billion in state funds over 20 years for land and water conservation. Some lawmakers, Republican and Democrat, say its better to wait and see whether that amendment passes before devoting major resources to water cleanup and management. Constantine Toumbis

Franny Beecher, lead guitarist for Bill Haley and the Comets, which helped kick off the rock and roll era with the hit Rock Around the Clock in 1955, has died. He was 92. Beecher died in his sleep Monday night at a nursing home near Philadelphia, daughter Pauline Grinstead said Tuesday. The Comets, whose hits also included See You Later, Alligator, are credited by some music historians with having recorded the first rock and roll song in 1953 with Crazy Man, Crazy, the groups biography on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website says. Beecher, born Francis Beecher in 1921 in Norristown, started playing guitar before crowds when he was 17 and continued until he was 90; before the Comets, he performed with Buddy Greco and Benny Goodman, Grinstead said. My dad didnt play music for money. He was no businessman, she said. He played music for music. Although Philadelphia session musician Danny Cedrone played on the original recording of Rock Around the Clock before his death in 1954, Beecher played the signature song for the first time on national television in 1955 and also played with the group in films. Rock Around the Clock became a hit again nearly 20 years after its release when it was included on the soundtrack of American Graffiti. The Comets broke up in 1962, but in the 1980s, Beecher and some of the original members reunited and played tour dates around the United States and internationally for years. Grinstead said her father also is survived by two sons and six grandchildren. Funeral arrangements were pending.Walter Ehlers, 92WORLD WAR II MEDAL OF HONOR WINNERLOS ANGELES During the historic D-Day invasion of World War II, Walter D. Ehlers accomplished some of the most awe-inspiring acts of bravery imaginable, earning a Medal of Honor for knocking out two German machine-gun nests and saving countless Allied soldiers lives. The 23-year-old staff sergeant charged through enemy gunfire to kill seven enemy soldiers, chase away several others, put a halt to mortar fire and carry a wounded comrade to safety, even after he been shot in the back. Yet for years, Ehlers rarely talked about those accomplishments; not until word got around that it was his Medal of Honor heroics that were getting him invited to every presidential inauguration since Dwight D. Eisenhowers. Ehlers died Thursday at a Long Beach hospital of kidney failure, his wife, Dorothy, told The Associated Press on Monday. He was 92, and his passing leaves only seven surviving World War II Medal of Honor recipients. He never bragged about it at all, his wife said of her husbands wartime heroics, adding he simply told people who commented on his Medal of Honor, I wear it for all those who didnt come home. That included his older brother, Roland. He would always tell you his brother, who was killed on D-Day, was his hero, she said. The brothers had enlisted in the Army together in 1940 and had taken part in invasions of Africa and Italy before D-Day arrived on June 6, 1944. The day before, their military superiors said they were separating them to improve the odds that at least one would survive. As the Allied boats arrived under heavy German fire, Ehlers, a staff sergeant, led his group of soldiers onto the sand. His brother, arriving on another boat, was killed. I got all 12 of my men off the beach without a casualty, which was the best thing I ever did in my life, he once told the Orange County Register. As the soldiers advanced, they came under heavy fire from first one and then another machine-gun nest. Ehlers single-handedly knocked out both, as well as chased away a group of German soldiers firing mortar rounds. In all, he killed seven enemy soldiers and carried a badly wounded comrade to safety after being shot in the back himself. The intrepid leadership, indomitable courage, and fearless aggressiveness displayed by Staff Sgt. Ehlers in the face of overwhelming enemy forces serve as an inspiration to others, his Medal of Honor citation reads. After the war, Ehlers returned briefly to Kansas, where he had grown up and where a street is named after him in the town of Manhattan. Soon afterward, he moved to California.A6WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEOBITUARIES Closing time for placing ad is 4 business days prior to run date.

could face 15 years or less in prison time. Magrino has struggled with seeking the death penalty in the Huggett case, saying juries generally do not like handing out death penalties in child death cases unless there was a history or pattern of previous abuse. Brittany Nichole Arnett, 22, of Robin Hood Road, Inverness, will also change her plea Thursday morning in the death of her infant baby in late January 2013. Arnett was reportedly upset that her boyfriend had left her at home with the baby. She reportedly unleashed her fury on the infant. According to Arnetts arrest report, around noon on Jan. 27, Arnett reportedly placed the baby in his swing and in the subsequent two hours slammed the face of the infant into the swing tray. She also reportedly admitted to investigators she grabbed the infant by the rib cage and yanked him from the swing with such force it caused the babys head to snap back and forth without resistance. According to the affidavit, Arnett said she knew the baby was injured by the time her boyfriend got home, but was afraid to tell him or seek medical help. Arnett reportedly put the baby to bed, but at 6:25 the next morning, she and the boyfriend took the unresponsive baby to Citrus Memorial hospital. Medical staff tried for more than an hour to revive the baby, according to the report. After closely examining the baby, hospital staff noticed numerous marks including bruising of the rib cage and what appeared to be a bite mark on his left thigh. An autopsy conducted the following day on the baby revealed, among other injuries, brain hemorrhaging, a separated spine, broken ribs and lacerations inside the babys mouth. Alyssia Skinner of Hernando is expected to be sentenced Friday afternoon for crimes alleging she starved and severely abused her infant daughter. Skinner, 23, was arrested Valentines Day 2013 on eight counts of aggravated child abuse and torture, and child negligence with and without bodily harm. No bond was allowed. According to Skinners arrest affidavit, she confined her 17-month-old baby to a small, cluttered, filthy, dimly-lit room in her mobile home and kept the air conditioner cranked up. She also reportedly withheld food from the child and went for long periods without changing the baby, causing rashes on the childs pelvic area and causing the room to reek of urine and feces. The room was devoid of toys and the radio was reportedly on non-stop. When investigators finally had the infant examined by medical authorities after a visit for a well-being check on the home, the conclusionwas the child suffered from chronic hypothermia and starvation. The baby also was diagnosed by doctors as having about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of blood on the surface of her brain, which is generally indicative of shaken baby cases.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014 A7 000H9F8 000HHCB Interest rate shown is as of 2/19/14, is subject to change and may vary in accord with state regulat ions.

In my opinion, not the opinion of the board, but I believe its been your behavior and your actions. Meek said the ordinance was not meant to single out Adams, but was needed to codify current rules. You are the one I think that has created a hostile environment to county staff, Meek continued in answer to Adams. Meek pointed out the noninterference clause and another section addressing workplace harassment in the civility and decorum code, the subject the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) was discussing at a public hearing. Meek said he believed that in multiple incidences county staff felt threatened or felt either intimidated or harassed or whatever it is. This provides a level of protection for that. Some of the things that you have said to county staff puts them in an awkward position. Adams responded with: Name them. Acting County Attorney Kerry Parsons stopped Adams, warning, You could cause litigation against the county from raising things like that. Adams said Meeks statements needed proof. He said all his correspondence was through email, putting it all on the record. Im fighting a resistance of arrogance thats unbelievable, so everything I do is in writing, Adams said. Mr. Meek cant name one person because its an outright lie. Adams comment caused Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney to pound the gavel. County Administrator Brad Thorpe stated: That is an indication right there of misconduct. Kenney pounded again as Adams, Thorpe and Parsons tried to speak at once, and called a 10minute recess. When the hearing resumed, Adams said, I think this policy is going to come down to this: What board members are getting along? So are we going to impeach Scott today because he wont play with the rest of the group like Gerry Mulligan (Chroniclepublisher) wants? Gerry Mulligan wants Scott to do exactly what the status quo does and thats not going to happen. Im going to do what the right thing is for everybody in Citrus County. Adams then said the ordinance should be delayed until the board could hear outside legal opinions about its constitutionality, which he said would cost from $250,000 to $500,000. We cannot at any time prior restrain any political speech, Adams said. Its illegal, ladies and gentlemen. The ordinance was frivolous compared to many other issues facing the board, Adams said, and began to list them. But Kenney told him to stick to the ordinance. Adams continued: The real thing and this comes out of law I have the freedom to talk or assist with any county employee as a commissioner or a citizen and there is no ordinance that can restrain that, ladies and gentlemen. And it can be beat in court. Meek responded: You say that there is no problem. But Im here to tell you that there is a problem because of your behavior. And that is the fact of the matter. Meek said the ordinance was constitutional because 45 out of 67 Florida counties have a similar ordinance, and the wording was taken from those ordinances. Meek said the problem was with treatment of staff. I will tell you it is embarrassing that we constantly have these debates, these fights we get into, Meek said. Its embarrassing for the public; its embarrassing for our businesses. Its embarrassing for potential new citizens and new businesses that are coming here. They see a local government thats in dysfunction, with a commissioner that makes accusations and that operates through intimidation. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said she brought forward the ordinance initially and believed it should be enacted and made a motion to pass it. Meek seconded it. Adams responded that he never went to dinner with another commissioner. Youve never seen Scott Adams running around with employees trying to cut deals, Adams said. Kenney brought down the gavel again, saying: There you go again with another innuendo. How inappropriate. And you ask why we are bringing forth this ordinance? Adams said he was not suggesting wrongdoing, but that such conversations should be brought before the board for transparency and separation of powers. Adams said Bays husband and Meek both sit on the EDC board. Ms. Bays husband was removed from the hospital board, Adams continued. From the audience, Mike Bays stated: Dont mention my name again, Scott, causing Kenney to bang the gavel again. Adams tried to continue speaking, but Bays called for an immediate vote as a subsidiary motion. Meeks seconded it. Parsons said discussion was closed. She read into the record that commissioners could ask staff questions but not direct their duties. Then the ordinance was passed by 4 to 1, with Adams voting no. The Public Participation Ordinance passed unanimously. John Wade, president of the Citrus County Council, a local government watchdog group, offered to assist the commissioners in drawing up a citizens bill of rights.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanorme r@chronicleonline.com.

Collapse of exchange spells trouble for bitcoinTOKYO The sudden disappearance of one of the largest bitcoin exchanges only adds to the mystery and mistrust surrounding the virtual currency, which was just beginning to gain legitimacy beyond the technology enthusiasts and adventurous investors who created it. Prominent bitcoin supporters said the apparent collapse of the Tokyo-based Mt. Gox exchange was an isolated case of mismanagement that will weed out bad actors. But the setback raised serious questions about bitcoins tenuous status and even more tenuous future. At least one supporter said the blow could be fatal to bitcoins quest for acceptance by the public.Panel faults US govt over offshore tax evasionWASHINGTON A Senate investigation has found that billions of dollars in U.S. taxes are going unpaid because Americans are exploiting Swiss bank accounts and the U.S. government has failed to aggressively pursue Switzerlands second-largest bank. The bank, Credit Suisse, has provided accounts in Switzerland for more than 22,000 U.S. clients, according to a report issued Tuesday. For five years, the Senate panel has been examining Swiss banks use of secrecy laws to enable tax evasion by Americans. The main focus of its latest report was Credit Suisse. Credit Suisse had no immediate comment on the Senate report.Consumer Reports names Tesla Model S its top pickDETROIT The Tesla Model S electric sedan is Consumer Reports top pick in this years automotive rankings. The magazine cited the Model Ss sporty performance and technological innovations, including its 225-mile range. But it acknowledged that the car is expensive. Consumer Reports paid $89,650 for the Model S it tested. The rankings, now in their 18th year, pick Consumer Reports favorites among the 260 vehicles its team has recently tested. The rankings are closely watched in the auto industry, since shoppers consistently cite Consumer Reports as a main source of car-buying advice.US home prices dip for second straight monthWASHINGTON U.S. home prices fell for the second straight month in December as brutally cold weather, tight supply and higher costs slowed sales. The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index declined 0.1 percent from November to December, matching the previous months decline. The figures come after other reports show that home sales and construction have slowed after strong gains last year. Most economists expect the housing recovery will continue this year, though likely at a slower pace.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014 A11 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,600 1,650 1,700 1,750 1,800 1,850 F SONDJ 1,800 1,840 1,880 S&P 500Close: 1,845.12 Change: -2.49 (-0.1%) 10 DAYS 14,500 15,000 15,500 16,000 16,500 17,000 F SONDJ 15,800 16,060 16,320 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,179.66 Change: -27.48 (-0.2%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1419 Declined1650 New Highs133 New Lows19 Vol. (in mil.)3,409 Pvs. Volume3,648 2,062 2,101 1019 1549 148 20 NYSE NASD DOW 16254.2616147.2516179.66-27.48-0.17%-2.39% DOW Trans.7346.137270.357291.66-48.91-0.67%-1.47% DOW Util.525.56519.84520.79-1.26-0.24%+6.16% NYSE Comp.10397.4210330.4310353.78-15.74-0.15%-0.45% NASDAQ4307.514275.804287.59-5.38-0.13%+2.66% S&P5001852.911840.191845.12-2.49-0.13%-0.18% S&P4001366.541357.121361.05-2.24-0.16%+1.38% Wilshire 500019878.4119745.1319795.79-16.79-0.08%+0.46% Russell 20001179.341171.171173.95-0.60-0.05%+0.89% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Fourth-quarter profit rose 11 percent as the department store wrestled with terrible winter weather in much of the country. Losses widened as the office supply retailer continues to integrate OfficeMax, an acquisition it completed in the quarter. The retailer topped Wall Street expectations for profit and revenue during the fourth quarter and comparable-store sales grew.

Interestrates 000HI33 Associated PressNEW YORK Stocks were unable to find any momentum on Tuesday. The market drifted between gains and losses throughout the day, then headed steadily lower in the last hour of trading. Investors found some solace in strong results from Home Depot and Macys. The enthusiasm was not enough, however, to offset an unexpectedly steep decline in consumer confidence this month, due largely to bitter cold weather and winter storms that affected much of the country. The weather is having an impact on everything, from homes, vehicles to retail sales, but fortunately we expect that pent-up demand to return later this year, said Joseph Tanious, a global market strategist at J.P. Morgan Funds. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 27.48 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,179.66. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 2.49 points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,845.12 and the Nasdaq composite fell 5.38 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,287.59. Even the retailers, who have a tendency to blame the weather for poor results, had a valid point this time around. Macys reported an 11 percent rise in fourthquarter income that handedly beat analysts expectations, but sales came up short due to the weather. The company said that at one time in January, 30 percent of its stores were closed because of inclement weather. Home Depot had a similar story. The nations largest home improvement retailer said profits fell 1 percent from a year ago, hampered by bad winter conditions. We dont like to use weather as an excuse but we think we probably lost $100 million in January, Home Depots chief financial officer, Carol Tome, said in a conference call with investors. Atlanta was frozen, for example. It was tough here. Investors were able to forgive Macys and Home Depot for missing analysts sales expectations. Macys rose $3.19, or 6 percent, to $56.25 and Home Depot closed up $3.11, or 4 percent, to $80.98. Volatile day on Wall Street ends with stocks down BusinessBRIEFS From wire reports

OPINION Page A12WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2014 Cut our attack adsIt looks like the stupid attack ads have started again. This will go on until the elections. All the wasted money on that could help bring the deficit down where it should be. Instead they are wasting money on these attack ads to brainwash people into thinking that the other guy is bad. What would happen if they did the opposite? I think then maybe people would listen and make their own minds up. Just say what you would do if elected. As far as corruption goes, I think they are all corrupted and do whatever the lobbyist tells them to do. After all, they are giving money for their campaign. Once that is done, then they owe the lobbyist big time. Everyone is sick of the government getting in our faces and telling us it is for our own good. They cant even run the country right. Now with Obamacare, will we end up bailing out all the insurance companies? Do you think this is right? I think not. Until we clean our own house and cut the freebies, we will never be debt-free. There are far too many things that need fixing in this country. While they are all fighting with one another, it will only get worse. Anna DeRose Lecanto Everything today is faster than it used to be, but this seems astonishing: Historians already are shaping their assessments of Barack Obamas presidency. Thats in part because the president has courted historians Michael Beschloss, H.W. Brands, Douglas Brinkley, Robert Caro, Robert Dallek, Doris Kearns Goodwin, David Kennedy, among many so assiduously. But Obama wasnt alone in welcoming intellectuals into his circle. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was surrounded by them, including the agricultural economist Rexford Tugwell, who eventually wrote four books about FDR. So was John F. Kennedy, whose circle included the historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., author of a Kennedy biography that is still consulted by students of the presidency. But Obama apparently tempted fate when he made an astute comment to David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker: At the end of the day, were part of a long-running story. We just try to get our paragraph right. And so, on Presidents Day, Politico asked a panel of leading historians for their assessment of the Obama years. From Oxfords Margaret MacMillan and Princetons Sean Wilentz to Yales Beverly Gage and George Masons Jeremy D. Mayer, they filed their Obama paragraphs and, being academics rather than journalists, those paragraphs were on the long side. Ive often written that history changes with time, and so I think the president requires three paragraphs, one that might have been written at the beginning of his White House years; a separate one written now, at the beginning of his sixth year; and one that might be written at the end of his presidency. So as not to be affected by the scholars critiques, I prepared three paragraphs of Obama assessment without consulting their first drafts of history. Heres what might have been written as the president took office: At the end of the first decade of the 21st century, the United States, still scarred by racial tensions dating to 1619, nonetheless elected its first black president. Barack Obama of Illinois wasnt so much a politician as a phenomenon. He was propelled into the White House after only two years in the Senate, where his profile was thin and his record even more so. But he displayed an uncanny ability to align his campaign with the hopes of Americans, including their genuine desire to put the hurts and humiliations of racism behind them. Indeed, hope was at the center of the Obama campaign, coming as it did while the United States was suffering from a serious economic recession. Obama ran as much against George W. Bush, the incumbent president, as he did against his war-hero opponent, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, and the Democrats innate fluency made for a compelling contrast with the less-polished McCain, whose choice of a running mate with little experience and no rhetorical filters befuddled even his closest aides. Obamas ascent to the White House was a thrilling national moment of redemption and reconciliation and provided boundless optimism in the country and the capital. Heres Obamas paragraph appropriate for February 2014: After a bravura presidential campaign that left the country breathless, the nations first black president was wrestled down to earth by real-world problems he inherited from his predecessor and, as time went on, by challenges he created himself or were happily delivered to him by the Republican House of Representatives, increasingly ruled by a tea party insurgency that managed to gain the whip hand in the GOP caucus. The post-partisan era Barack Obama promised quickly revealed itself to be more reverie than reality. He proved unable to woo his rivals, who took his landmark health care overhaul and transformed it into a partisan battering ram an effort that was eased by the multiple, inexplicable problems it encountered as it went into effect. For his part, Obama proved to be an inflexible negotiator, his determination more successful in alienating his rivals than in pleasing his partisan allies. The president succeeded in overseeing the killing of terrorist chieftain Osama bin Laden, but displayed an uncertain hand diplomatically and presided over vast expansions of surveillance that troubled those on the right as well as on the left. Heres the paragraph Obama might still receive: No presidential nominee since John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan ran a campaign as inspiring as the one Barack Obama crafted in 2008, when he defeated the establishment candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, for the Democratic nomination and then sailed into office on gusts of goodwill that thrilled the nation and inspired the world. In every regard, this president was breaking precedent. The first black chief executive, his election suggested a post-racial America, and in his first year he was able to realize the dream of every Democratic president since Harry Truman by winning approval to overhaul the health care system. But that very victory, won without a single Republican vote, signaled problems ahead, and before long Washington was afflicted by the partisan strife Obama vowed to eliminate. Still, there were signs of hope amid the muddle and the misery. The economy took longer than anyone expected to recover from the Great Recession, but by the middle of 2014, the green shoots that had prompted early optimism had grown into saplings showing signs of maturing into stately oaks. House Speaker John Boehner for most of the Obama years frustrated by the tea party rebellion won a clean debt-ceiling extension in the winter of 2014 and suddenly rays of sunshine shone on Washington. Obama and the Republicans responded to that warmth and, though tensions remained and a vital election loomed, surprising progress was made on several issues, including immigration, and the two parties finally agreed on a comprehensive restructuring of the entitlement system that until 2015 threatened to strangle the American economy. Surely other elements could be added to these paragraphs, and indeed these paragraphs, especially the last one, could be altered in tone and substance entirely. But for the writer of these paragraphs and perhaps for the reader of them, this exercise underlines how great was the potential of the Obama years and how great the potential remains. Most of us dont get even one paragraph to write in history, to say nothing of the chance to change the country or the world. Obama can still write his paragraph. He should draft it now before others do.David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Post-Gazette (dshribman@post-gazette.com, 412 263-1890). Follow him on Twitter at ShribmanPG.

These projects were put on the Transportation Alternatives priorities list to start the process of finding funding. In Homosassa, one sidewalk is proposed to run along U.S. 19 from U.S. 98 to West Cardinal Street; the other is along West Cardinal Street from U.S. 19 to County Road 491 in Lecanto. These areas have seen an increase in foot and bicycle traffic since the opening of the new Publix on U.S. 19 and the new Walmart store on Cardinal Street. A third is Miss Maggie Drive in Chassahowitzka, the road from U.S. 19 to the campground at the river. The fourth project is along North Forest Ridge Boulevard in Citrus Hills, from C.R. 486 to C.R. 491 in Beverly Hills. That stretch of road serves Forest Ridge Elementary, the Central Ridge Library and a park. All are appropriate locations for sidewalks based on public safety considerations for dark, narrow or busy roadways. More and more, people are walking and biking to get to where they want to go, and Citrus County slowly has been transforming itself into a more walkable, bikable community. Its unfortunate that allowances were not made for sidewalks or multi-use paths in earlier planning stages, especially in the more heavily residential areas. Future development should include walkability features, which increase a developments value. As these sidewalk projects move forward, planners and funding entities need to use common sense. We all remember the public outcry prompted by construction of sidewalks on both sides of S.R. 44 between Inverness and Crystal River. Partway through, that project was changed so just a single side was paved. Citrus County needs to prioritize these projects. Theres always a cost/benefit analysis to be done in planning and staging construction projects. The cost of a serious injury or death is higher than anyone wants to pay. Public safety should always be the No. 1 factor. We rate the Forest Ridge project at the top of the list because of its heavy use in connection with the school, library and surrounding residential area. THE ISSUE:Residents want sidewalks along four county roadways.OUR OPINION:Smart move for public safety, but prioritize.

High cost of electricityI live in a two-bedroom, one-bath, 45-foot mobile home and today I just received my electric bill $130. Are you kidding me? Thing is, I hardly had my heater on. I have been freezing to death knowing that my electric was going to be high, but that high? I just moved up here from Fort Myers and had a three-bedroom, two-bath house and never had an electric bill that high ever, running my air night and day. Leesa Schlarb Floral CityBuilder kept his promiseMy husband and I sold our Citrus Hills home on Nov. 1, 2013. We are building a new home and renting until our new home is finished. It is extremely important that we be in a new home within three months time. In fact, that was the main factor in who we chose to use for our new home. I do business from a home office. Weve already moved once to the rental. I have been very concerned about my being on top of business and my clients ability to reach me with yet another move to come. We weighed our options. A friend recommended a builder from Bushnell who she and her father know personally. We gave a call to the company L. Norman Adams Builders. We spoke with Richard Ricky Hibbard, VP of the company who made an appointment to meet with us right away. At that time, we were between two different builders. Ricky told us I want to build our home. He told us he can do it in the time we need it done. That, and knowing friends of ours know of the company and Ricky personally, sold us on L. Norman Adams Builders of Bushnell. Of course after hiring the builder, we still had to wait and see that promises would actually come through. That was yet to be seen at that point. Having built a home before, we were worried that it would not be done as quickly as Ricky told us he could do it. Friends and family did not believe it could happen that quick. Lo and behold it is going to be done well in advance of the threemonth mark. Ricky kept his promises. He has pushed to get things taken care of quickly. Despite the fast work, there has been absolutely no slack or scrimping on the quality of work. Ricky told us he had workers lined up just waiting for the call to begin work and get it done. He said hed do his best to push for permits as quickly as possible. He made it happen. With all of the bad going on these days, its refreshing to have good experiences with people you work with. We highly recommend L. Norman Adams Builders of Bushnell to anyone with plans to build. Whether it be a commercial building or personal home. The company and Ricky have been nothing short of professional. They do real quality work and stand by their word. They deserve recognition and people deserve to hear about their fantastic work. There are a lot of builders out there people are always looking for firsthand recommendations. Here is a good recommendation. We can tell you firsthand.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Lawmakers signaled a difficult battle ahead for the Obama administrations plan to dramatically overhaul the nations military, voicing opposition Tuesday to proposed cuts in benefit packages, longstanding weapons programs and bases that mean money and jobs across America. The skepticism from both Republicans and Democrats augured poorly for Defense Secretary Chuck Hagels vision of shrinking the Army to its smallest size in three-quarters of a century and creating a nimbler force more suited to future threats than the large land wars in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last decade. Tuesdays advance of a new veterans bill also suggested Congress may be more interested in increasing military spending in a midterm election year. The cuts will weaken our nations security while the threats we face around the world are becoming more dangerous and complex, Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham, two leading GOP hawks, said in a joint statement. Now is not the time to embrace a defense posture reminiscent of the years prior to World War II, they said, without outlining substitute cost reductions. Tensions exist in both parties. GOP hawks are lining up against tea party supporters keen to rein in spending, while Democrats backing the Obama administration must deal with colleagues from military-heavy districts and states fretful about the potential fallout. Automatic spending cuts that landed heavily on the military were only eased somewhat by a budget agreement two months ago. Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama has ordered the Pentagon to plan for a full American withdrawal from Afghanistan by the end of this year should the Afghan government refuse to sign a security agreement with the U.S, the White House said Tuesday. However, in a call with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Obama also said the U.S. could still keep a limited troop presence in Afghanistan after 2014 if the agreement is ultimately signed. He acknowledged that Karzai was unlikely to sign the bilateral security agreement himself, leaving the fate of the continued U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan to the winner of the countrys April elections. We will leave open the possibility of concluding a BSA with Afghanistan later this year, the White House said in a summary of the call between the two leaders. However, the White House added that the longer we go without a BSA, the more likely it will be that any post-2014 U.S. mission will be smaller in scale and ambition. Tuesdays call was the first direct contact between Obama and Karzai since last June, underscoring the White Houses frustration with the Afghan leaders refusal to sign the security agreement. The pact would give the U.S. a legal basis for having forces in Afghanistan after 2014, and also allow it to use bases across the country. The White House has repeatedly said it would not leave American troops in Afghanistan without the agreement. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called Obamas order to the Pentagon a prudent step given the likelihood that Karzai will not sign an agreement. However, he said the Pentagon would also continue to make plans for a possible U.S. mission in Afghanistan after this year, which would focus on counterterrorism and training Afghan security forces. The Pentagon has long had contingency plans for multiple options in Afghanistan. However, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said Tuesday that until now, the military was not actively planning for a complete withdrawal. Now we will, the Pentagon press secretary said. Associated PressFORT EUSTIS, Va. Only a small fraction of Army women say theyd like to move into one of the newly opening combat jobs, but those few who do say they want a job that takes them right into the heart of battle, according to preliminary results from a survey of the services nearly 170,000 women. That survey and others across the Army, publicly disclosed for the first time to The Associated Press, also revealed that soldiers of both genders are nervous about women entering combat jobs, but say they are determined to do it fairly. Men are worried about losing their jobs to women; women are worried they will be seen as getting jobs because of their gender and not their qualifications. Both are emphatic that the Army must not lower standards to accommodate women. Less than 8 percent of Army women who responded to the survey said they wanted a combat job. Of those, an overwhelming number said theyd like to be a Night Stalker a member of the elite special operations helicopter crews who perhaps are best known for flying the Navy SEALS into Osama bin Ladens compound in 2011. Last year, top Pentagon officials signed an order saying women must have the same opportunities as men in combat jobs and the services have been devising updated physical standards, training, education and other programs for thousands of jobs they must open Jan.1, 2016. The services must open as many jobs to women as possible; if they decide to keep some closed, they must explain why. The Army says that about 200,000 of its 1.1million jobs are either direct combat or related jobs such as field artillery, combat engineers and so on. Thats roughly 20 percent of the force, though the direct-combat frontline fighters make up roughly half of that or about 9 percent. Throughout last year, the Army emailed questionnaires to activeduty, reserves and Army National Guard members to gauge soldiers views on the move to bring women into combat jobs. The results from the survey sent to women showed that just 2,238 or 7.5percent of the 30,000 who responded said they would want one of the infantry, armor, artillery and combat engineer jobs. Army officials also polled men and women on their concerns about the integration. And they asked senior female leaders to say whether they would have chosen combat jobs if theyd been given that chance 10 or 20 years ago. All agreed the physical standards for the jobs should remain the same. Bonanza Associated PressThis is one of the six decaying metal canisters filled with 1800s-era U.S. gold coins unearthed in California by two people who want to remain anonymous. The value of the Saddle Ridge Hoard treasure trove is estimated at $10 million or more. Couple finds gold coin stashLOS ANGELES A Northern California couple out walking their dog on their Gold Country property stumbled across a modernday bonanza: $10 million in rare, mint-condition gold coins buried in the shadow of an old tree. Nearly all of the 1,427 coins, dating from 1847 to 1894, are in uncirculated, mint condition, said David Hall, co-founder of Professional Coin Grading Service of Santa Ana, which recently authenticated them. Although the face value of the gold pieces only adds up to about $27,000, some of them are so rare that coin experts say they could fetch nearly $1 million apiece. I dont like to say oncein-a-lifetime for anything, but you dont get an opportunity to handle this kind of material, a treasure like this, ever, said veteran numismatist Don Kagin, who is representing the finders. Its like they found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Kagin, whose family has been in the rare-coin business for 81 years, would say little about the couple other than that they are husband and wife, are middle-aged and have lived for several years on the rural property where the coins were found. They have no idea who put them there, he said. New index: This winters miserableDETROIT A new winter misery index confirms what many Americans in the Midwest and East know in their all-too-chilled bones: This has been one of the harshest winters of our lifetimes. And nowhere has been hit harder than Detroit. National Weather Service meteorologist Barbara Mayes Boustead created an index a couple of years ago to judge the severity of winters based on snowfall and plunging temperatures. For Detroit, this is the most extreme winter since 1950. Boustead calls it a misery index. Detroit has plenty of company. Half of the 24 cities she looked at are slogging through winters that are among the 10 harshest since 1950. That includes Chicago, Philadelphia, Indianapolis and New York.NASA to research Calif. droughtFRESNO, Calif.

Associated PressTAMPA Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston has no plans to stop being a two-sport man. Im just 20-years old, Winston said Tuesday after Florida State lost 8-3 in the New York Yankees spring training opener. This is my life, man. I want to play both as long as I can. I love both of them. Ive got a strong passion for both. Florida States quarterback in the fall, Winston went 0 for 2 in the Seminoles exhibition game against the Yankees. He grounded out to second base while facing Shane Greene in the sixth and struck out looking on a full-count pitch from Bryan Mitchell two innings later. Obviously, hes a great talent, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. I guess he had a football injury in the championship game which kept him from hitting for a while. But hes just starting to pick up the bat again. I guess he had torn a ligament in his left index finger. Winston has made three scoreless appearances as a closer this season but didnt get a chance to pitch against his favorite baseball team. Seminoles coach Mike Martin said Winstons arm was a little tender after his outing Saturday. There were really not any plans for him to pitch, Martin said. Not throwing today gives him Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday off before he pitches again. We felt that would be the best way to approach it. Florida State plays Miami on Friday. Winston played in the field twice previously this year, getting a hit in his lone at-bat.

First test passed Playing first game at No. 1, UF nips Vandy Associated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn. Florida coach Billy Donovan knows his newly top-ranked Gators are an even bigger target for opponents. They just keep finding ways to finish off victories. Dorian Finney-Smith scored 19 points, and Florida, playing its first game at No. 1, held off Vanderbilt 57-54 on Tuesday night to clinch at least a share of its second straight Southeastern Conference title and seventh overall. The Gators are 13-2 in games decided by single digits after losing all six last season, and Donovan said their margin for error is not very big. Were not an overly talented team, were just not, Donovan said. And what these guys have done up to this point in time it really has been pretty remarkable in my opinion. Theyve done a really good job. ... But I think sometimes when you see a team with a high ranking you think dominance, you think they just blow everybody out. Thats not what we are or who we are. Patric Young added 12 points for the Gators (26-2, 15-0 SEC), who continued the best season in school history by winning their 20th straight game, and they will have a chance to claim their third SEC title in four years all to themselves with a win against LSU on Saturday. Humbling to know that we can come from where we were not being able to do it last year and be able to finish out these close games this year, Young said. The Commodores (15-12, 7-8) beat Florida 83-70 the last time the Gators came into Memorial Gym ranked No. 1, on Feb. 17, 2007. Coach Kevin Stallings only has seven healthy scholarship players right now, and they proved no match for Floridas smothering defense and much deeper bench. We did a good job, but thats why theyre the No. 1 team in the country, Stallings said. Theyve got weapons. They throw it to the open guy, and that guy usually delivers. Thats why theyve lost two games. The Commodores sure made it interesting. Kyle Fuller missed a tying 3 in the final seconds when Luke Kornet was guarded closely by Young, and Dai-Jon Parker missed a putback attempt. Coach drew up a play for Luke to run a flare screen, but when he got it Patric was kind of on him, said Fuller, who scored the final seven points for Vandy. When I got it I thought I created enough space, but when it left my hand it just didnt feel right. Rod Odom scored 12 points and Parker added 11 as Vanderbilt outshot Florida 48.8 percent (20 of 41) to 40.4 percent (21 of 52). The Commodores hit four of eight 3-point attempts in the second half to stay close. The Commodores came in 8-16 all-time against top-ranked teams tapping into what they like to call Memorial magic in Nashville. The old gym wasnt sold out Tuesday night, but fans certainly were as loud as they have been all season trying to urge Vanderbilt to an improbable upset. Florida led 32-25 at halftime and pushed that out to 53-45 only to see Vanderbilt rally each time. Fullers three-point play with 3:16 remaining made it 5350. Finney-Smith hit a free throw, then Vanderbilt forced a shot clock violation when Wilbekins desperate shot from long range banked off the backboard and rim. Fuller made two free throws with a minute left. Finney-Smith got the ball wide open and knocked down a 3 with 30.6 seconds to go for the clinching basket. Finney-Smith had been in a slump, scoring in double digits only once in the past 11 games. I just shot the ball with confidence, Finney-Smith said. Usually, I throw it in for Patric, but the forward was holding for Pat so I could replace, we did a roll and replace, and I was wide open for 3. Veteran could fill No. 5 spot on Rays staff Associated PressErik Bedard is excited about the prospect of helping the Tampa Bay Rays get back to the playoffs. The 34-year-old left-hander signed a minor league contract on the eve of the start of spring training and is being given an opportunity to compete for a job as the teams No. 5 starter. Bedard struggled the past two seasons, going 11-26 with a combined 4.78 ERA for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Houston Astros. The Rays will decide over the next few weeks if hes capable of filling in for the injured Jeremy Hellickson, whos expected to miss the first six to eight weeks of the season after undergoing elbow surgery. Bedard, who turns 35 on March 5, was 4-12 with a 4.59 ERA in 32 games, including 26 starts, for the Astros in 2013. Two years ago, he went 7-14 with a career-worst 5.01 ERA in 24 starts for the Pirates.

This tournament offers the unique opportunity to compete in singles. Another distinction it has, compared with most other tournaments, is the number of division players can choose from: 17 to be exact. Mens and Womens; A,B,C and Juniors singles. Mens, Womens and Mixed; A,B,C, and Juniors doubles. If you have ever been involved with the organization of a tournament, you know that this number of divisions can be a nightmare to pull off in one weekend. That is the reason that players should consider not playing in more than two events. If you prefer to play singles, one division is probably plenty. The entry fee is $20 for one event, $10 for the second event. The organizers will also accept donations of gently used clothing and/or canned food for the Family Resource Center. For more information or to sign up please contact one of the following people: Tournament Directors: Cindy Reynolds or AJ Glenn at 697-3089; Sally deMontfort at 795-9693 or deMont@ embarqmail.com; Eric van den Hoogen at 352-382-3138 or hoera@juno.com. Eric van den HoogenON TENNIS Learn to play tennis with some local pros In the tee box Associated PressPALM BEACH GARDENS Imagine being one-third of the way through the PGA Tour season and having a slight edge over Tiger Woods in the FedEx Cup. I would say, God, Im playing well, said Joe Ogilvie. Except that hes not. But he does have a slight edge over Woods, who is hardly playing at all. The points distribution system goes down to the very decimal. Ogilvie finished in a two-way tie for 74th at the Phoenix Open, but because one full point is awarded only to 70th place, he earned 0.91 points. Woods did not make the 54-hole cut at Torrey Pines and finished in a two-way tie for 80th, thus receiving 0.79 points. So at least Ogilvie has that going for him. It is amazing that were one-third of the way through the season, Ogilvie said. But hes playing the Honda Classic, so I know hes looking at the stats and saying, If I can just get ahead of Ogilvie, I should be OK for the rest of the year. Woods has said hes having a hard time getting his head around the wraparound season that started in July. That should start to clear up this week at the Honda Classic, which the No. 1 player sees as the start to his season. The Florida Swing is better known as the road to the Masters, and its time for Woods to get into gear. Hes in good company, of course. Masters champion Adam Scott, who has played twice as much as Woods this season on the PGA Tour (that would be two tournaments) is holding steady at No. 101 in the FedEx Cup. Hes three spots ahead of Rory McIlroy. Thats what prompted NBC Sports analyst Johnny Miller to effectively dismiss the three wins this season by Jimmy Walker, the winners of the tournaments last fall (which include Webb Simpson and Dustin Johnson), or even the 64-64 weekend by Bubba Watson when he won at Riviera. Weve had a lot of good stories, Miller said. But I think now the guns are back and probably ready to do something in the next couple weeks. So I dont see players that maybe are the second-tier players ... I think the big boys are warmed up and ready to go. Some of them are, anyway. Scott followed his amazing run Down Under with a pair of top 10s in Hawaii before taking a six-week break. McIlroy had chances to win at Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Woods is the mystery, though its early, even if the PGA Tours new schedule says otherwise. He has played only four times since the Presidents Cup last October the Turkish Airlines Open, his World Challenge against an 18-man field, Torrey Pines and Dubai. He missed the 54hole cut at Torrey Pines with his worst score in America (79), and he tied for 41st in the Dubai Desert Classic. Woods said he spent most of the offseason trying to get my body organized, and he said his game was slow to come around. But hes playing three of the next four weeks, including title defenses at Doral and Bay Hill. Even with 14 tournaments already in the books, there is a sense the PGA Tour season is just started. Besides, at this stage in his career, its all about being ready for the majors for Woods. He is not unlike Jack Nicklaus at age 38. Nicklaus played only five times before the Masters in 1978, and he played two events a month in the heart of the season (February through August). Associated PressWith about one-third of the PGA season gone, Tiger Woods will start his year at the Honda Classic on Thursday in Palm Beach Gardens. Woods finally set to play PGA event in 2014

Youd like to think that putting him in front of our defense is going to make (his numbers) even better. ... He could be better than a .500 pitcher, Maddon said, adding that one of the keys to Bedards success with the Orioles was he was able to throw something other than a fastball in a fastball count for a strike. He was uncanny at that. Thats why I thought he really ruled when he was with Baltimore. Bedard was 40-34 in five years with the Orioles. He won 15 games in 2006 and was just as impressive the following year, when he was 13-5 with a 3.16 ERA in 28 starts. Injuries curtailed his production following a trade to Seattle in 2008, and Bedard is happy to have an opportunity to get his career back on track with a contender. The Rays have made the playoffs four of the past six seasons. Theyre a winning organization. Theyve been consistent the last five, six years, and everybody wants to be a part of that. Ive always heard good things from other players that its fun to be here, relaxed, and you just play ball, Bedard said after throwing a batting practice session. BEDARDContinued from Page B1

Rodney Hood scored 21 points to help No. 6 Duke beat Virginia Tech 66-48 on Tuesday night. Rasheed Sulaimon added 15 points for the Blue Devils (23-6, 12-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), who jumped to a 24-4 lead midway through the first half and never trailed though they struggled to land a game-finishing blow on the Hokies. Duke didnt shoot the ball particularly well and its outside shooting was streaky, but it still had relatively little trouble against a Virginia Tech team that has won just once since the start of the calendar year. The lastplace Hokies (9-18, 2-13) had a strong start to the second half and got within seven points, but never seriously threatened what would have been an improbable comeback in Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Blue Devils finished the game shooting 39 percent, including 10 for 33 from 3-point range well below their ACCleading 40.7 percent. The Blue Devils had completed a stretch of four games in eight days with Saturdays home win against then-No. 1 Syracuse, which came about 48 hours after the weather-delayed rivalry loss at North Carolina.Minnesota 95, No. 20 Iowa 89MINNEAPOLIS Austin Hollins scored a career-high 27 points on 8-for-10 shooting, DeAndre Mathieu had 19 points and seven assists and Minnesota bounced back from a monthlong slump with a 95-89 win over No. 20 Iowa. Hollins made all seven of his free throws for the Gophers (18-11, 7-9 Big Ten), who won for just the third time in their last nine games by making 13 of their last 14 free throws over the final 70 seconds. Charles Buggs came off the end of the bench to score a career-high 13 points. Roy Devyn Marble had only five of his 24 points in the second half for the Hawkeyes (19-8, 8-6). Wizards magical vs. Orlando Associated PressWASHINGTON John Wall scored 27 points, and the mustmake-playoffs Washington Wizards survived their first game after Nenes latest injury, beating the road-hapless Orlando Magic 115106 Tuesday night. Trevor Ariza added 22 points and hit all five of his 3-point attempts, and Marcin Gortat had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Wizards, who made 10 of 16 3-pointers and have won a season-high four in a row to move one game above .500. They also improved to 2-6 this season without Nene, who sprained the MCL in his left knee Sunday in a 96-83 win at Cleveland. Victor Oladipo scored 26 points for the Magic.Pacers 118, Lakers 98INDIANAPOLIS Paul George scored 12 of his 20 points in the third quarter, Evan Turner had 13 points in his Pacers debut, and Indiana beat the Los Angeles Lakers 118-98. Indiana improved its league-leading record to 43-13. Kent Bazemore finished with a careerhigh 23 points and Jodie Meeks added 15 for the Lakers (19-38), who have the worst record in the West. The loss also ended Los Angeles three-game winning streak at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Lakers stayed closer than expected through the first 2 1/2 quarters and trailed just 59-58 early in the third.Raptors 99, Cavaliers 93CLEVELAND DeMar DeRozan scored 16 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter, and the Toronto Raptors won for the sixth time in seven games with a 99-93 victory over the injury-riddled Cleveland Cavaliers. Terrence Ross hit a 3-pointer with 3:02 remaining to put Toronto ahead 9089. DeRozan dunked on a baseline drive and added two free throws to give the Raptors a 94-91 lead with 1:23 remaining. The All-Star hit three more free throws in the final 27 seconds to put away the game. Kyrie Irving, who played 45 minutes and the entire second half because of Clevelands depleted roster, scored 25 points and had nine assists.Bulls 107, Hawks 103ATLANTA Mike Dunleavy scored 22 points, Joakim Noah had 20 points and 12 rebounds and the Chicago Bulls held off the Atlanta Hawks 107-103. Carlos Boozer had 17 points and 11 rebounds for Chicago, and Kirk Hinrich scored 14 points, including six free throws in the final 44 seconds. The Bulls have won six of seven. Jeff Teague had 26 points but made two costly turnovers late in the game for the Hawks, who have lost nine of 10.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Even the scoreboards in high school gyms will have to advertise only healthy foods under new rules announced Tuesday by the Obama administration. Promotion of sugary drinks and junk foods around campuses during the school day will be phased out under the rules, intended to ensure that such marketing is brought in line with health standards that already apply to school foods. That means a scoreboard at a high school football or basketball game eventually wouldnt be allowed to advertise Coca-Cola, for example, but it could advertise Diet Coke or Dasani water, which is also owned by Coca-Cola Co. Same with the front of a vending machine. Cups, posters and menu boards which promote foods that dont meet the standards would also be phased out. Ninety-three percent of such marketing in schools is related to beverages, and many soda companies already have started to transition their sales and advertising in schools from sugary sodas and sports drinks to their own healthier products. Still, companies are spending $149 million a year on marketing to kids in schools, according to USDA. The proposed rules are part of first lady Michelle Obamas Lets Move initiative to combat child obesity, which is celebrating its fourth anniversary this week. Mrs. Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the new rules at a White House event. The idea here is simple our classrooms should be healthy places where kids arent bombarded with ads for junk food, the first lady said. Because when parents are working hard to teach their kids healthy habits at home, their work shouldnt be undone by unhealthy messages at school. The rules also would allow more children access to free lunches and ensure that schools have wellness policies in place. The proposed rules come on the heels of USDA regulations that are now requiring foods in the school lunch line to be healthier. Rules set to go into effect next school year will make other foods around school healthier as well, including in vending machines and separate a la carte lines in the lunch room. Calorie, fat, sugar and sodium limits will have to be met on almost every food and beverage sold during the school day at 100,000 schools. Concessions sold at afterschool sports games would be exempt. The healthier food rules have come under fire from conservatives who think the government shouldnt dictate what kids eat and from some students who dont like the healthier foods. At the White House event, Mrs. Obama defended herself against critics, saying that I didnt create this issue. This new approach to eating and activity is not just a fad, and its not just a movement, she said. Nowhere is this more clear than in our schools. Aware of the backlash, the USDA is allowing schools to make some of their own decisions on what constitutes marketing and asking for comments on some options. For example, the proposal asks for comments on initiatives like Pizza Huts Book It program, which coordinates with schools to reward kids with pizza for reading. Rules for other school fundraisers, like bake sales and marketing for those events, would be left up to schools or states. Twice a year, students are introduced to the local electoral process registering to vote, making an informed decision and finally voting by the Supervisor of Elections office. Twice a year, with our voter and registration program, we go in and give a presentation on the electoral process, voting, who is up for election and how do you qualify, said Patrick Thomas, voter outreach coordinator. We give them the registration form and give them the opportunity to vote. There is a PowerPoint presentation and now the video component. Four years ago, Crystal River High School created an American Idol-themed video that showcased to students how voting works. When students at the Academy of Environmental Science saw this video, they wanted to create one with a Survivor theme. From our perspective, when we go into the schools, it is always fun for the students to see fellow students putting on a video, said Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill. Its better than us showing them a video that they are not interested in. Thus began the challenge. They did 100 percent of it, said instructor Chris Monrad. All I gave them was time and resources. They wrote it, produced it and edited it with their own equipment. Students spent time at a Crystal River beach and at the Marine Science Station filming their project. They created a surprise ending by having an unlikely contestant win, and captured the reactions of the other contestants to the surprise, seemingly unqualified winner. And they learned not only about voting and elections, but about production. The night scenes in particular were our struggles, a student said. The tribal councils were tough because it was rainy and windy. The beach scene we also struggled with because we had to shoot it two different days. We thought we had great footage the first day. But when we listened to it we realized that we couldnt hear anything due to the wind. The Supervisor of Elections Office will be taking the video around to the area high schools as a tool to educate other students. We are happy with the way that things turned out, and we cant wait to show it to other schools, Gill said.EDUCATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014 C3 000HEGU Proceeds Benefit Citrus County Blessings The Path Community Food Bank of Citrus County March 13, 2014 5:00 p.m. 9:00 p.m. Rock Crusher Pavilion $ 50 Donation Per Person Hog, Buffalo, Gator, Ribs, Brisket, Chicken and More, plus Open Bar & Craft Beer, Music, Door Prizes and Raffles!

But if youre checking out the folks around the table, look again. This rock star sits right on the table inside your saltshaker! Salt is the only rock that humans eat. Its essential for human life, and it has helped to support whole civilizations. The Mini Page spoke with Mark Kurlansky, the author of The Story of Salt, to learn more about this rock star of the spice cabinet.What is salt? Salt is a compound, or combination, of two elements: the metal sodium (Na) and the gas chlorine (Cl). By themselves, these two elements can be quite dangerous. But working together, they make sodium chloride salt.Where in the world? In the United States, most of our salt comes from mines. Salt mines are found in the south-central and upper Midwest areas of the U.S., particularly near Detroit, with a few in the West. In a salt mine, layers of salt have been deposited over many millions of years. The salt in mines is extremely pure, or clean. Workers dig out chunks of salt and crush them. Or they may pump water into the mine and then pump out the brine, or salty water. The brine is mechanically evaporated so that just the salt remains.Salt beds In countries that have more coastline, salt producers section off some shoreline, collect seawater, and let the water evaporate, leaving salt crystals behind. This method is very cost-effective, but it takes longer. Less than 10 percent of the salt produced today is used for food. The biggest use of salt is for de-icing roads during winter. Salt is used in making medicines, to treat water and for agriculture. Its also used to make some plastics and aluminum.

Salt doesnt really melt the ice that falls on roads. But it does make the freezing point of water lower. So when icy rain or snow hits a treated street, conditions have to be colder for the street to freeze compared to an untreated street. The ice in both bowls melted, but the temperature of the saltwater rose faster than the temperature of the regular ice water.

We need it to move oxygen and send nerve signals. When early humans still hunted and ate mostly wild animals, they got the salt they needed from the blood and flesh of the animals. But as humans began farming and eating more fruits and vegetables, they had to find salt elsewhere. They also had to feed salt to the animals they raised.Preserving food Salt made it possible for people near and far to trade the foods they refrigerators or freezers in ancient times. But early people discovered that salt could preserve, or keep food fresh. It killed bacteria and removed moisture, where some bacteria grow. Learning to preserve food also gave people the ability to travel far from home, because they could take food with them. (There werent any fastfood restaurants along the way, either!) Being able to preserve food for trade with other countries gave some groups of people enormous power. For salt production provided half of the governments money. Those little white Salting away Preserved food also allowed people to plan for times when food was in short preserve fish and meat. They also used salt to mummify dead bodies.In North America controlled the salt trade at different times. When Europeans arrived in use mostly European salt to preserve their foods and furs.

Next week, The Mini Page is all about the hilarious Harlem Globetrotters. The Atlantic Ocean In the late 1400s, explorers figured out they could sail around the the idea of trading with the New World. Many of these countries were part of a huge fishing industry. The fish, mostly cod, had to be salted so it would taste and travel better. Northern European countries, where the fish were caught, made trade agreements with more southern countries, where the sun and dry weather helped produce more sea salt. For example, England cooperated with Portugal. As people moved west, canals were built to move salt and other products to new settlements. The Erie Canal connected Lake Erie with the Hudson River. Technology kicks salt aside foods to preserve them, and later refrigerating and freezing them, salt lost much of its value.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Denis Waitley, a founding member of the National Council on Self-Esteem, said, Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning. That is true, but sometimes, at the bridge table, trying for an extra trick can prove very expensive. Still, occasionally a defender can dangle a tempting carrot that leaves declarer thinking he has a no-cost shot at an overtrick. In this deal, South is in three no-trump, and West leads the heart 10. How might West tempt declarer into an indiscretion? South should open one no-trump. Yes, the club holding of two honors doubleton is a minus, but the five-card suit is a compensating plus. Declarer starts with seven top tricks: three hearts (given the opening lead), one diamond and three clubs. Obviously, he will attack clubs. However, West can set a nasty trap for South. Declarer takes the first trick in his hand and cashes the club king. West should play his five. Then, when South continues with the club queen, West should drop his eight. He is trying to make it look as though he started with J-8-5 and East with the 6-4-doubleton (and was starting a high-low with his six). If declarer falls for the ruse, he will win the third trick with his queen and suddenly find that he cannot make the contract. Instead, South must overtake his club queen with dummys ace and continue with the club 10 to drive out Wests jack. Then declarer gets at least three hearts, one diamond and five clubs.

I have liked this young lady for seven years since high school. Our relationship has been on the friend side, although I have shown her that I like her. Recently, she started to talk to another young man who has quite a history with girls. He has cheated on the last two of his three girlfriends. I am fine if she dates someone else, but I am concerned that she will end up hurt if she sets her sights on this particular guy. I do not mind if we dont date, but our friendship is in jeopardy. We used to talk every day during lunch, but now she is talking to another friend and ignores me. She told me that she wants our friendship to continue, but she is the one destroying it. I am confused. How do I preserve this friendship? Concerned Friend Dear Concerned: Is your friend aware of this guys history? You can express your concern, but then please back off. She is apparently willing to be hurt, and if you try to protect her too much, she may end the friendship altogether. Youve been carrying a torch for this young woman for many years, and she has yet to return your affections. We think its time you broadened your circle. This onesided friendship is not healthy for you. Dear Annie: Its happened again. Ive left another nail salon because the technician working on me began talking to other manicurists in their language. Am I wrong to find this practice rude? If I am paying for their time, shouldnt their focus be on me and not on what I assume is idle gossip? One technician even took glances at the TV while using the sanding file on me. I worked for a large company and taught new hires overseas. We asked them not to converse in their language in front of customers. I guess my question is: Should I say something? To them or to the owner? Or should I simply accept that this is the norm in nail salons? Spokane Dear Spokane: This is not a personal conversation where two people are talking in a foreign language and ignoring you. That would be rude. At a nail salon, however, as long as the service is being performed satisfactorily, it doesnt matter what language they are speaking or to whom. Of course, if they are so distracted that the professional quality of their work suffers, this is cause for complaint. You should first ask the technician to focus on the services being provided, and if that doesnt help, notify management. Dear Annie: Please post my response to Miserable Forever. I, too, was married to an abusive man for 30 years. Dear Miserable: Ask your local womens shelter for assistance in exiting the home, follow-up shelter and counseling. The counseling is a must. We dont realize how much of ourselves we lose during an abusive relationship. We go from living to existing, and it took a long time to get there. You cant go from existing to living again overnight. It takes time and support. Give yourself the time to heal. You are worth it. The legal matters are important, but they are secondary to getting yourself into a safe and healing environment. It took me two years to get back on my feet and obtain my divorce. Its been three years since I vacated the marriage, and I am just now learning who I am. No one can take the steps for you or make the problem go away. Dont let fear of the future rob you of the life that is waiting. Been There and Survived Dear Been There: Thank you for your testimonial. We know it will give courage to Miserable and others like her.

AmeriGas owes county $14,000 MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS Citrus County commissioners will negotiate an agreement with AmeriGas Propane Inc. over an unpaid 22-year, $650 annual lease that has erupted into a heated debate between Commissioner Scott Adams and the countys top two officials. The board on Tuesday voted 4-1 to allow County Administrator Brad Thorpe to negotiate with AmeriGas to partially pay the $14,000 it owes on property it leases from the county on Forest Drive in Inverness. Adams voted no. Commissioners also directed Thorpe to defer discussions on a new lease to the city of Inverness after the city and county complete a land swap. The county is giving the AmeriGas property to the city for expansion of its Whispering Pines Park trails. The county is receiving some city property near the Inverness Airport for a roadway to a new fixed-based operator station. Much of the discussion, however, had little to do with correcting the lease. Instead, Adams urged the board to not approve anything until the Florida Department of Law Enforcement completes an inquiry of allegations he has made regarding Thorpe and his friendship with David Langer, a former AmeriGas salesman. Whats the big rush? Adams said. Thorpe and County Attorney Kerry Parsons said that the FDLE has suggested nothing criminal took place. FDLE has indicated this appears to be civil in nature, Parsons said, referring to a FEBRUARY 26, 2014Floridas Best Community Newspaper Serving Floridas Best CommunityVOL. 119 ISSUE 203 50 CITRUS COUNTYClose call: Top-ranked Gators survive at Vanderbilt /B1 www.chronicleonline.com HIGH72LOW54Cloudy, with a 60 percent chance of rain.PAGE A4TODAY& next morning WEDNESDAY INSIDE INDEX Classifieds . . . .C9 Comics . . . . .C8 Community . .C5, C6 Crossword . . . .C7 Editorial . . . .A12 Entertainment . . .A4 Horoscope . . . .A4 Lottery Numbers . .B3 Lottery Payouts . .B3 Movies . . . . . .C8 Obituaries . . . .A6 TV Listings . . . .C7 Controlling conduct: Women in combat: Politics of survival:CR council votes to ban open containers of alcohol near the entrance to Three Sisters./ A3 According to a survey, only a few Army women say theyd want a combat job./ A14 Students at the Academy of Environmental Science stage a version of Survivor./ C1 Accused child killers to plea Alyssia Skinneraccused of starving and abusing her infant daughter.

PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe acquisition of 73 Sweetbay stores by Winn-Dixie parent company Bi-Lo Holdings is on hold in some communities, including Dunnellon. Last May, Bi-Lo announced it had entered an agreement with the Delhaize Group to acquire Sweetbay and two other supermarket chains. In October, Bi-Lo announced once the transaction closes it will retire the Sweetbay banner name, and those stores will convert to the Winn-Dixie banner to reduce overlapping market footprints. Conversion was expected to begin in the first quarter of 2014. However, the Federal Trade Commission determined the acquisition would harm competition in several local markets in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Tuesday, the FTC announced a settlement with Bi-Lo that preserves grocery store competition in 11 local geographic markets in those three states According to the FTCs complaint, Bi-Los proposed acquisition of the Delhaize stores would likely harm consumers Dunnellon Sweetbay may be sold to IGA Supermarkets A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerThis week, three detained Citrus County mothers will learn their fates when they face Circuit Court Judge Richard Ric Howard about harming their children, two of them fatally. First up, on Wednesday morning, Chelsea Maree Huggett, 23, of Hernando, is expected to change her plea in the death of her of her 2-year-old daughter Aliyah Branum. Authorities allege Huggett fatally harmed the toddler because the girl wouldnt stop whining. Detectives said Huggett killed Aliyah by shaking her, beating her head against the wall and head-butting her. Authorities initially charged Huggett with first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse, but the eventual charges ended up being murder III and negligence.

through higher prices, diminished quality and reduced service levels in Dunnellon and 10 other communities. Dunnellon would go from three fullline retail grocery stores to two. The proposed order settling the FTC charges requires the merged Bi-Lo/Delhaize to sell 12 stores. Subsequently, BiLo has agreed to sell the Dunnellon Sweetbay to Rowes IGA Supermarkets. Rowes currently operates five supermarkets in the greater Jacksonville market. The order states this remedy will restore the competition that otherwise would be eliminated in these markets as a result of the acquisition. The agreement is subject to public comment for 30 days, continuing through March 27, after which the FTC will decide whether to make the proposed order final, withdraw it or modify it. Mitchell J. Katz, FTC spokesperson, said the commission will respond to all public comments and the comments will posted online. He said it is uncertain how long the process might take. To comment visit www.ftc.gov and type Bi-Lo in the search bar. Feb. 14 email an FDLE official send to Adams. Adams said Parsons was wrong. He noted FDLE sent agents to Citrus County on Monday, spoke to county officials and left with documents he provided regarding the lease. Im appalled by Ms. Parsons comments, Adams said. Yesterday, FDLE came to the courthouse and got records. Your information is totally inaccurate. On a day when commission Chairman John JJ Kenney repeatedly banged his gavel to keep Adams on topic, Adams kept his allegations regarding the lease to a minimum. Instead, he said FDLE would take months to complete an investigation. Thorpe and Parsons, however, said FDLE agents have suggested no such thing. I met with FDLE yesterday, Thorpe said. They could not find any probable cause for criminal activity. Adams said he didnt believe it. So in five minutes they investigated 20 years? Are you serious? Adams said. This is going to take months. An FDLE spokeswoman said Monday that the agency should decide by next week whether to open an investigation or not.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.A2WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL /STATE 000H9IN Board Certified American Osteopathic Board of Ophthalmology and Otorhinolaryngology Board Certified National Board of Examiners for Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons Ward Eye Center 8490 W.

MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCounty Administrator Brad Thorpe and Commissioner Scott Adams have a spirited exchange over a property lease that has not been paid for decades. LEASEContinued from Page A1 SALEContinued from Page A1 Associated PressGREEN COVE SPRINGS Three northeast Florida sheriffs deputies have been disciplined after an arrest mix-up sent the wrong teenager to jail. The then-17-year-old spent 35 days in the Clay County jail after being charged as an adult in a sexual battery case. One deputy also faces a suspension and a transfer. The Florida Times-Unionreported that in a disciplinary letter, Sheriff Rick Beseler wrote that because of that deputys incompetence, an innocent man was arrested for an offense that he did not commit. The deputies actually had been seeking another student at the same high school with the same first and last names but a different middle name. The first teen was arrested in late August after a girl younger than 12 years old told investigators that on or around Halloween 2012 she had sex with an older boy she identified only by name. Authorities said investigators failed to confirm their suspects identity with a photo lineup and went looking for a suspect with the name reported by the girl. Beseler said his department has policies in place intended to prevent these types of wrongful arrests. When the teen went to court in early October and received documents with the details of the charges against him, he realized authorities were confusing him with someone else. The correct suspect was eventually arrested and has a hearing scheduled for next month on a sexual assault charge. Teen spends 35 days in jail after mistaken arrest

Springs alcohol ban passes first hurdleA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVER The city council approved on first reading, the first in a series of measures officials believe will help curb unruly conduct on the water entrance to Three Sisters Springs and begin to turn the tide in crowd control on the congested canal. Council members voted 3-0 on Monday to ban open containers of alcohol near the water entrance to the popular springs. Council members Paula Wheeler and Robert Holmes were absent. The ordinance gets one more hearing at the next council meeting before it becomes law. The alcohol ban stems from several recommendations from the Three Sisters Springs Working Group, which was charged with coming up with a solution to overcrowding in the canal fronting the water entrance. The ordinance defines the areas boundaries as Cutler Spur Boulevard to the east, Kings Bay Drive to the north and the west, and Paradise Point Drive to the south. An open container means any receptacle or container immediately capable of being consumed from by a person, or which has been opened, or a seal broken, or the contents of which have been partially removed. Alcoholic beverages include distilled spirits and all beverages containing 0.5 percent or more alcohol by volume. The law, if passed after second reading, will fine first violators up to $50 and subsequent fines can cost a violator up to $300. Janis Huegel, and her husband Jack, live down the canal from the congested spot and spoke in support of the measure. However, Janis wondered why the potential initial fine at $50 was so low. She wanted to see stiffer fines, in line with other popular recreation spots like Silver Glen, where alcohol use was banned and fines are up to $500. City attorney George G. Angeliadis said officials did look at other places that have instituted open container laws, but thought they were a little too high. Overcrowding at the water entrance of the manatee-watching area has become untenable, according to visitors and residents of the area. The working group was formed last year to come up with some solutions and their suggestions included: Work with enforcement agencies to provide a presence to promote desired behaviors. Establish a mooring system which should help free up the channel near the entrance and provide safety for swimmers. Creating a kayak tie-up area east of the water entrance. City officials also voted to pursue a court order in circuit court to move a boat they contend has been illegally moored in a cove in Kings Bay since 2009. Officials say Premier Construction LLC, owner of the boat, has created a dangerous condition by mooring the vessel at its current location. A hearing officer ordered the vessel moved within five days or the city can go ahead with plans to have it towed and stored. A couple of weeks ago, the city council authorized funds for this effort and according to officials the owner has not heeded the hearing officers order.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Matthew Edward Lohoski used a variety of weapons to kill his mother, Deborah Susan Lohoski, Clearwater Police Spokesman Rob Shaw said in a news release Tuesday. Lohoski choked his mother until she was unconscious, left her outside and went to check on his daughter, making sure she was playing video games in another room, according to the news release. He returned to his mother and found her still breathing, Shaw said. It was then he used a pocket-style box cutter to cut her throat and her armpit area, where he was attempting to sever an artery, Shaw wrote in the news release. Lohoski then went to check on his daughter again, officials said. When he returned to his mother, he tried choking her with a zip tie, then hit her in the head three times, Shaw said. Deborah Lohoskis body was found in the backyard of the house. Authorities said Lohoski dropped his daughter at a friends house before driving to the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, where he told an officer that he had just killed his mother. Sheriffs deputies called Clearwater police to investigate. Lohoski was being held Tuesday at the Pinellas County Jail on a charge of first-degree murder. Jail records did not show whether he had an attorney.

Foundation board members said they couldnt justify spending $179,000 for the Center for Breast Cancer Excellence when Hospital Corporation of America is expected to start its 50-year lease in a few months. Some of this stuff can wait until people with deeper pockets show up, board Chairwoman Sandy Chadwick said. Hospital officials, led by chief medical officer Dr. Charles Nutinsky, had envisioned the center as a location to combine numerous services that women must now visit numerous offices. He said the equipment is already available in the imaging center in the same building. He said the center also would significantly reduce the time between a mammogram, results and treatment. Board members were stung by the cost. One proposed supplier, for example, charged $11,200 for 14 chairs. Eight hundred bucks for a chair? said board member Dr. Constantine Toumbis. Nutinsky said a focus group, comprised mostly of women, helped design the center so that it was comfortable, inviting and easy to navigate. We had cheaper chairs, he said. Thats the focus group thought they were: cheaper chairs. Board member Robert Collins noted that Citrus Memorial has studied a breast-cancer center for three years and it could wait a few more months. Board member Joe Brannen agreed. It doesnt make a whole lot of sense, he said, with HCA right around the corner.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@chronicleonline.com. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleCity of Crystal River officials are one hearing away from banning alcohol use on the water fronting the water entrance of Three Sisters Springs. Monday, the council voted to advance the ordinance through to the next and final reading. Officials hope to curb unruly conduct among recreational boaters and control overcrowding at the popular destination. Sandy Chadwick Lawmakers to talk water funding, not policy Associated PressLAKE OKEECHOBEE In the marshes along the western edge of Floridas largest freshwater lake, the water is clear, wading birds burst into the sky ahead of an approaching airboat, and theres no sign of the turmoil that elevated water levels caused last summer. The political waters in Tallahassee, though, are roiling over Lake Okeechobee and other hydrological woes, from Floridas Big Bend to the states signature springs to a treasured estuary along the Atlantic. Residents, lawmakers and environmental advocates want the state to do more to better manage its water resources. However, the speaker of the House has said no major change to Floridas water policies is likely to come out of the legislative session that begins March 4. Rep. Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, told reporters earlier this month that any water issues that come up this year will deal with funding, while policy initiatives and long-term water management plans likely will be deferred until next year. His office declined comment last week on those statements and referred questions about water issues to the legislator expected to take over as speaker in 2015, House Majority Leader Steve Crisafulli, R-Merritt Island. Most of what were looking at right now is projectrelated, not policy-related, Crisafulli said. The projects up for discussion include a cleanup in the Indian River Lagoon and finding ways to store more water north of Lake Okeechobee, which would alleviate pressure on the lakes decrepit dike and reduce the amount of water released into sensitive ecosystems west and east of the lake, Crisafulli said. Last year, water levels in the lake rose to dangerous levels during a very rainy wet season, prompting the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which controls the dike and locks around the 730-square-mile lake, to release large amounts of fresh water into the Indian River Lagoon and the Caloosahatchee River. The excess water and the pollution it carried were blamed for steep declines in the health of those ecosystems. Residents on either side of the lake loudly called for the water to stop; corps officials said they were working to do so while managing the risks that high water levels pose to the earthen dike, parts of which date back to the 1930s. It got so contentious that Republican Gov. Rick Scott added the lakes federal management to his list of complaints against President Barack Obamas administration. State senators investigating the problems have recommended shifting control of how and when water is released from the lake from the corps to the state, which would require congressional action. The Senate select committee led by Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, also recommends $220 million in state funding to improve water quality and expand storage reservoirs around the lake. In November, voters will consider a conservation amendment that could set aside $10 billion in state funds over 20 years for land and water conservation. Some lawmakers, Republican and Democrat, say its better to wait and see whether that amendment passes before devoting major resources to water cleanup and management. Constantine Toumbis

Franny Beecher, lead guitarist for Bill Haley and the Comets, which helped kick off the rock and roll era with the hit Rock Around the Clock in 1955, has died. He was 92. Beecher died in his sleep Monday night at a nursing home near Philadelphia, daughter Pauline Grinstead said Tuesday. The Comets, whose hits also included See You Later, Alligator, are credited by some music historians with having recorded the first rock and roll song in 1953 with Crazy Man, Crazy, the groups biography on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame website says. Beecher, born Francis Beecher in 1921 in Norristown, started playing guitar before crowds when he was 17 and continued until he was 90; before the Comets, he performed with Buddy Greco and Benny Goodman, Grinstead said. My dad didnt play music for money. He was no businessman, she said. He played music for music. Although Philadelphia session musician Danny Cedrone played on the original recording of Rock Around the Clock before his death in 1954, Beecher played the signature song for the first time on national television in 1955 and also played with the group in films. Rock Around the Clock became a hit again nearly 20 years after its release when it was included on the soundtrack of American Graffiti. The Comets broke up in 1962, but in the 1980s, Beecher and some of the original members reunited and played tour dates around the United States and internationally for years. Grinstead said her father also is survived by two sons and six grandchildren. Funeral arrangements were pending.Walter Ehlers, 92WORLD WAR II MEDAL OF HONOR WINNERLOS ANGELES During the historic D-Day invasion of World War II, Walter D. Ehlers accomplished some of the most awe-inspiring acts of bravery imaginable, earning a Medal of Honor for knocking out two German machine-gun nests and saving countless Allied soldiers lives. The 23-year-old staff sergeant charged through enemy gunfire to kill seven enemy soldiers, chase away several others, put a halt to mortar fire and carry a wounded comrade to safety, even after he been shot in the back. Yet for years, Ehlers rarely talked about those accomplishments; not until word got around that it was his Medal of Honor heroics that were getting him invited to every presidential inauguration since Dwight D. Eisenhowers. Ehlers died Thursday at a Long Beach hospital of kidney failure, his wife, Dorothy, told The Associated Press on Monday. He was 92, and his passing leaves only seven surviving World War II Medal of Honor recipients. He never bragged about it at all, his wife said of her husbands wartime heroics, adding he simply told people who commented on his Medal of Honor, I wear it for all those who didnt come home. That included his older brother, Roland. He would always tell you his brother, who was killed on D-Day, was his hero, she said. The brothers had enlisted in the Army together in 1940 and had taken part in invasions of Africa and Italy before D-Day arrived on June 6, 1944. The day before, their military superiors said they were separating them to improve the odds that at least one would survive. As the Allied boats arrived under heavy German fire, Ehlers, a staff sergeant, led his group of soldiers onto the sand. His brother, arriving on another boat, was killed. I got all 12 of my men off the beach without a casualty, which was the best thing I ever did in my life, he once told the Orange County Register. As the soldiers advanced, they came under heavy fire from first one and then another machine-gun nest. Ehlers single-handedly knocked out both, as well as chased away a group of German soldiers firing mortar rounds. In all, he killed seven enemy soldiers and carried a badly wounded comrade to safety after being shot in the back himself. The intrepid leadership, indomitable courage, and fearless aggressiveness displayed by Staff Sgt. Ehlers in the face of overwhelming enemy forces serve as an inspiration to others, his Medal of Honor citation reads. After the war, Ehlers returned briefly to Kansas, where he had grown up and where a street is named after him in the town of Manhattan. Soon afterward, he moved to California.A6WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEOBITUARIES Closing time for placing ad is 4 business days prior to run date.

could face 15 years or less in prison time. Magrino has struggled with seeking the death penalty in the Huggett case, saying juries generally do not like handing out death penalties in child death cases unless there was a history or pattern of previous abuse. Brittany Nichole Arnett, 22, of Robin Hood Road, Inverness, will also change her plea Thursday morning in the death of her infant baby in late January 2013. Arnett was reportedly upset that her boyfriend had left her at home with the baby. She reportedly unleashed her fury on the infant. According to Arnetts arrest report, around noon on Jan. 27, Arnett reportedly placed the baby in his swing and in the subsequent two hours slammed the face of the infant into the swing tray. She also reportedly admitted to investigators she grabbed the infant by the rib cage and yanked him from the swing with such force it caused the babys head to snap back and forth without resistance. According to the affidavit, Arnett said she knew the baby was injured by the time her boyfriend got home, but was afraid to tell him or seek medical help. Arnett reportedly put the baby to bed, but at 6:25 the next morning, she and the boyfriend took the unresponsive baby to Citrus Memorial hospital. Medical staff tried for more than an hour to revive the baby, according to the report. After closely examining the baby, hospital staff noticed numerous marks including bruising of the rib cage and what appeared to be a bite mark on his left thigh. An autopsy conducted the following day on the baby revealed, among other injuries, brain hemorrhaging, a separated spine, broken ribs and lacerations inside the babys mouth. Alyssia Skinner of Hernando is expected to be sentenced Friday afternoon for crimes alleging she starved and severely abused her infant daughter. Skinner, 23, was arrested Valentines Day 2013 on eight counts of aggravated child abuse and torture, and child negligence with and without bodily harm. No bond was allowed. According to Skinners arrest affidavit, she confined her 17-month-old baby to a small, cluttered, filthy, dimly-lit room in her mobile home and kept the air conditioner cranked up. She also reportedly withheld food from the child and went for long periods without changing the baby, causing rashes on the childs pelvic area and causing the room to reek of urine and feces. The room was devoid of toys and the radio was reportedly on non-stop. When investigators finally had the infant examined by medical authorities after a visit for a well-being check on the home, the conclusionwas the child suffered from chronic hypothermia and starvation. The baby also was diagnosed by doctors as having about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of blood on the surface of her brain, which is generally indicative of shaken baby cases.LOCALCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014 A7 000H9F8 000HHCB Interest rate shown is as of 2/19/14, is subject to change and may vary in accord with state regulat ions.

In my opinion, not the opinion of the board, but I believe its been your behavior and your actions. Meek said the ordinance was not meant to single out Adams, but was needed to codify current rules. You are the one I think that has created a hostile environment to county staff, Meek continued in answer to Adams. Meek pointed out the noninterference clause and another section addressing workplace harassment in the civility and decorum code, the subject the Citrus County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) was discussing at a public hearing. Meek said he believed that in multiple incidences county staff felt threatened or felt either intimidated or harassed or whatever it is. This provides a level of protection for that. Some of the things that you have said to county staff puts them in an awkward position. Adams responded with: Name them. Acting County Attorney Kerry Parsons stopped Adams, warning, You could cause litigation against the county from raising things like that. Adams said Meeks statements needed proof. He said all his correspondence was through email, putting it all on the record. Im fighting a resistance of arrogance thats unbelievable, so everything I do is in writing, Adams said. Mr. Meek cant name one person because its an outright lie. Adams comment caused Commission Chairman John JJ Kenney to pound the gavel. County Administrator Brad Thorpe stated: That is an indication right there of misconduct. Kenney pounded again as Adams, Thorpe and Parsons tried to speak at once, and called a 10minute recess. When the hearing resumed, Adams said, I think this policy is going to come down to this: What board members are getting along? So are we going to impeach Scott today because he wont play with the rest of the group like Gerry Mulligan (Chroniclepublisher) wants? Gerry Mulligan wants Scott to do exactly what the status quo does and thats not going to happen. Im going to do what the right thing is for everybody in Citrus County. Adams then said the ordinance should be delayed until the board could hear outside legal opinions about its constitutionality, which he said would cost from $250,000 to $500,000. We cannot at any time prior restrain any political speech, Adams said. Its illegal, ladies and gentlemen. The ordinance was frivolous compared to many other issues facing the board, Adams said, and began to list them. But Kenney told him to stick to the ordinance. Adams continued: The real thing and this comes out of law I have the freedom to talk or assist with any county employee as a commissioner or a citizen and there is no ordinance that can restrain that, ladies and gentlemen. And it can be beat in court. Meek responded: You say that there is no problem. But Im here to tell you that there is a problem because of your behavior. And that is the fact of the matter. Meek said the ordinance was constitutional because 45 out of 67 Florida counties have a similar ordinance, and the wording was taken from those ordinances. Meek said the problem was with treatment of staff. I will tell you it is embarrassing that we constantly have these debates, these fights we get into, Meek said. Its embarrassing for the public; its embarrassing for our businesses. Its embarrassing for potential new citizens and new businesses that are coming here. They see a local government thats in dysfunction, with a commissioner that makes accusations and that operates through intimidation. Commissioner Rebecca Bays said she brought forward the ordinance initially and believed it should be enacted and made a motion to pass it. Meek seconded it. Adams responded that he never went to dinner with another commissioner. Youve never seen Scott Adams running around with employees trying to cut deals, Adams said. Kenney brought down the gavel again, saying: There you go again with another innuendo. How inappropriate. And you ask why we are bringing forth this ordinance? Adams said he was not suggesting wrongdoing, but that such conversations should be brought before the board for transparency and separation of powers. Adams said Bays husband and Meek both sit on the EDC board. Ms. Bays husband was removed from the hospital board, Adams continued. From the audience, Mike Bays stated: Dont mention my name again, Scott, causing Kenney to bang the gavel again. Adams tried to continue speaking, but Bays called for an immediate vote as a subsidiary motion. Meeks seconded it. Parsons said discussion was closed. She read into the record that commissioners could ask staff questions but not direct their duties. Then the ordinance was passed by 4 to 1, with Adams voting no. The Public Participation Ordinance passed unanimously. John Wade, president of the Citrus County Council, a local government watchdog group, offered to assist the commissioners in drawing up a citizens bill of rights.Contact Chronicle reporter Chris Van Ormer at 352-564-2916 or cvanorme r@chronicleonline.com.

Collapse of exchange spells trouble for bitcoinTOKYO The sudden disappearance of one of the largest bitcoin exchanges only adds to the mystery and mistrust surrounding the virtual currency, which was just beginning to gain legitimacy beyond the technology enthusiasts and adventurous investors who created it. Prominent bitcoin supporters said the apparent collapse of the Tokyo-based Mt. Gox exchange was an isolated case of mismanagement that will weed out bad actors. But the setback raised serious questions about bitcoins tenuous status and even more tenuous future. At least one supporter said the blow could be fatal to bitcoins quest for acceptance by the public.Panel faults US govt over offshore tax evasionWASHINGTON A Senate investigation has found that billions of dollars in U.S. taxes are going unpaid because Americans are exploiting Swiss bank accounts and the U.S. government has failed to aggressively pursue Switzerlands second-largest bank. The bank, Credit Suisse, has provided accounts in Switzerland for more than 22,000 U.S. clients, according to a report issued Tuesday. For five years, the Senate panel has been examining Swiss banks use of secrecy laws to enable tax evasion by Americans. The main focus of its latest report was Credit Suisse. Credit Suisse had no immediate comment on the Senate report.Consumer Reports names Tesla Model S its top pickDETROIT The Tesla Model S electric sedan is Consumer Reports top pick in this years automotive rankings. The magazine cited the Model Ss sporty performance and technological innovations, including its 225-mile range. But it acknowledged that the car is expensive. Consumer Reports paid $89,650 for the Model S it tested. The rankings, now in their 18th year, pick Consumer Reports favorites among the 260 vehicles its team has recently tested. The rankings are closely watched in the auto industry, since shoppers consistently cite Consumer Reports as a main source of car-buying advice.US home prices dip for second straight monthWASHINGTON U.S. home prices fell for the second straight month in December as brutally cold weather, tight supply and higher costs slowed sales. The Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index declined 0.1 percent from November to December, matching the previous months decline. The figures come after other reports show that home sales and construction have slowed after strong gains last year. Most economists expect the housing recovery will continue this year, though likely at a slower pace.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014 A11 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,600 1,650 1,700 1,750 1,800 1,850 F SONDJ 1,800 1,840 1,880 S&P 500Close: 1,845.12 Change: -2.49 (-0.1%) 10 DAYS 14,500 15,000 15,500 16,000 16,500 17,000 F SONDJ 15,800 16,060 16,320 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,179.66 Change: -27.48 (-0.2%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1419 Declined1650 New Highs133 New Lows19 Vol. (in mil.)3,409 Pvs. Volume3,648 2,062 2,101 1019 1549 148 20 NYSE NASD DOW 16254.2616147.2516179.66-27.48-0.17%-2.39% DOW Trans.7346.137270.357291.66-48.91-0.67%-1.47% DOW Util.525.56519.84520.79-1.26-0.24%+6.16% NYSE Comp.10397.4210330.4310353.78-15.74-0.15%-0.45% NASDAQ4307.514275.804287.59-5.38-0.13%+2.66% S&P5001852.911840.191845.12-2.49-0.13%-0.18% S&P4001366.541357.121361.05-2.24-0.16%+1.38% Wilshire 500019878.4119745.1319795.79-16.79-0.08%+0.46% Russell 20001179.341171.171173.95-0.60-0.05%+0.89% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Interestrates 000HI33 Associated PressNEW YORK Stocks were unable to find any momentum on Tuesday. The market drifted between gains and losses throughout the day, then headed steadily lower in the last hour of trading. Investors found some solace in strong results from Home Depot and Macys. The enthusiasm was not enough, however, to offset an unexpectedly steep decline in consumer confidence this month, due largely to bitter cold weather and winter storms that affected much of the country. The weather is having an impact on everything, from homes, vehicles to retail sales, but fortunately we expect that pent-up demand to return later this year, said Joseph Tanious, a global market strategist at J.P. Morgan Funds. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 27.48 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,179.66. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 2.49 points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,845.12 and the Nasdaq composite fell 5.38 points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,287.59. Even the retailers, who have a tendency to blame the weather for poor results, had a valid point this time around. Macys reported an 11 percent rise in fourthquarter income that handedly beat analysts expectations, but sales came up short due to the weather. The company said that at one time in January, 30 percent of its stores were closed because of inclement weather. Home Depot had a similar story. The nations largest home improvement retailer said profits fell 1 percent from a year ago, hampered by bad winter conditions. We dont like to use weather as an excuse but we think we probably lost $100 million in January, Home Depots chief financial officer, Carol Tome, said in a conference call with investors. Atlanta was frozen, for example. It was tough here. Investors were able to forgive Macys and Home Depot for missing analysts sales expectations. Macys rose $3.19, or 6 percent, to $56.25 and Home Depot closed up $3.11, or 4 percent, to $80.98. Volatile day on Wall Street ends with stocks down BusinessBRIEFS From wire reports

OPINION Page A12WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2014 Cut our attack adsIt looks like the stupid attack ads have started again. This will go on until the elections. All the wasted money on that could help bring the deficit down where it should be. Instead they are wasting money on these attack ads to brainwash people into thinking that the other guy is bad. What would happen if they did the opposite? I think then maybe people would listen and make their own minds up. Just say what you would do if elected. As far as corruption goes, I think they are all corrupted and do whatever the lobbyist tells them to do. After all, they are giving money for their campaign. Once that is done, then they owe the lobbyist big time. Everyone is sick of the government getting in our faces and telling us it is for our own good. They cant even run the country right. Now with Obamacare, will we end up bailing out all the insurance companies? Do you think this is right? I think not. Until we clean our own house and cut the freebies, we will never be debt-free. There are far too many things that need fixing in this country. While they are all fighting with one another, it will only get worse. Anna DeRose Lecanto Everything today is faster than it used to be, but this seems astonishing: Historians already are shaping their assessments of Barack Obamas presidency. Thats in part because the president has courted historians Michael Beschloss, H.W. Brands, Douglas Brinkley, Robert Caro, Robert Dallek, Doris Kearns Goodwin, David Kennedy, among many so assiduously. But Obama wasnt alone in welcoming intellectuals into his circle. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was surrounded by them, including the agricultural economist Rexford Tugwell, who eventually wrote four books about FDR. So was John F. Kennedy, whose circle included the historian Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., author of a Kennedy biography that is still consulted by students of the presidency. But Obama apparently tempted fate when he made an astute comment to David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker: At the end of the day, were part of a long-running story. We just try to get our paragraph right. And so, on Presidents Day, Politico asked a panel of leading historians for their assessment of the Obama years. From Oxfords Margaret MacMillan and Princetons Sean Wilentz to Yales Beverly Gage and George Masons Jeremy D. Mayer, they filed their Obama paragraphs and, being academics rather than journalists, those paragraphs were on the long side. Ive often written that history changes with time, and so I think the president requires three paragraphs, one that might have been written at the beginning of his White House years; a separate one written now, at the beginning of his sixth year; and one that might be written at the end of his presidency. So as not to be affected by the scholars critiques, I prepared three paragraphs of Obama assessment without consulting their first drafts of history. Heres what might have been written as the president took office: At the end of the first decade of the 21st century, the United States, still scarred by racial tensions dating to 1619, nonetheless elected its first black president. Barack Obama of Illinois wasnt so much a politician as a phenomenon. He was propelled into the White House after only two years in the Senate, where his profile was thin and his record even more so. But he displayed an uncanny ability to align his campaign with the hopes of Americans, including their genuine desire to put the hurts and humiliations of racism behind them. Indeed, hope was at the center of the Obama campaign, coming as it did while the United States was suffering from a serious economic recession. Obama ran as much against George W. Bush, the incumbent president, as he did against his war-hero opponent, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, and the Democrats innate fluency made for a compelling contrast with the less-polished McCain, whose choice of a running mate with little experience and no rhetorical filters befuddled even his closest aides. Obamas ascent to the White House was a thrilling national moment of redemption and reconciliation and provided boundless optimism in the country and the capital. Heres Obamas paragraph appropriate for February 2014: After a bravura presidential campaign that left the country breathless, the nations first black president was wrestled down to earth by real-world problems he inherited from his predecessor and, as time went on, by challenges he created himself or were happily delivered to him by the Republican House of Representatives, increasingly ruled by a tea party insurgency that managed to gain the whip hand in the GOP caucus. The post-partisan era Barack Obama promised quickly revealed itself to be more reverie than reality. He proved unable to woo his rivals, who took his landmark health care overhaul and transformed it into a partisan battering ram an effort that was eased by the multiple, inexplicable problems it encountered as it went into effect. For his part, Obama proved to be an inflexible negotiator, his determination more successful in alienating his rivals than in pleasing his partisan allies. The president succeeded in overseeing the killing of terrorist chieftain Osama bin Laden, but displayed an uncertain hand diplomatically and presided over vast expansions of surveillance that troubled those on the right as well as on the left. Heres the paragraph Obama might still receive: No presidential nominee since John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan ran a campaign as inspiring as the one Barack Obama crafted in 2008, when he defeated the establishment candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, for the Democratic nomination and then sailed into office on gusts of goodwill that thrilled the nation and inspired the world. In every regard, this president was breaking precedent. The first black chief executive, his election suggested a post-racial America, and in his first year he was able to realize the dream of every Democratic president since Harry Truman by winning approval to overhaul the health care system. But that very victory, won without a single Republican vote, signaled problems ahead, and before long Washington was afflicted by the partisan strife Obama vowed to eliminate. Still, there were signs of hope amid the muddle and the misery. The economy took longer than anyone expected to recover from the Great Recession, but by the middle of 2014, the green shoots that had prompted early optimism had grown into saplings showing signs of maturing into stately oaks. House Speaker John Boehner for most of the Obama years frustrated by the tea party rebellion won a clean debt-ceiling extension in the winter of 2014 and suddenly rays of sunshine shone on Washington. Obama and the Republicans responded to that warmth and, though tensions remained and a vital election loomed, surprising progress was made on several issues, including immigration, and the two parties finally agreed on a comprehensive restructuring of the entitlement system that until 2015 threatened to strangle the American economy. Surely other elements could be added to these paragraphs, and indeed these paragraphs, especially the last one, could be altered in tone and substance entirely. But for the writer of these paragraphs and perhaps for the reader of them, this exercise underlines how great was the potential of the Obama years and how great the potential remains. Most of us dont get even one paragraph to write in history, to say nothing of the chance to change the country or the world. Obama can still write his paragraph. He should draft it now before others do.David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Post-Gazette (dshribman@post-gazette.com, 412 263-1890). Follow him on Twitter at ShribmanPG.

These projects were put on the Transportation Alternatives priorities list to start the process of finding funding. In Homosassa, one sidewalk is proposed to run along U.S. 19 from U.S. 98 to West Cardinal Street; the other is along West Cardinal Street from U.S. 19 to County Road 491 in Lecanto. These areas have seen an increase in foot and bicycle traffic since the opening of the new Publix on U.S. 19 and the new Walmart store on Cardinal Street. A third is Miss Maggie Drive in Chassahowitzka, the road from U.S. 19 to the campground at the river. The fourth project is along North Forest Ridge Boulevard in Citrus Hills, from C.R. 486 to C.R. 491 in Beverly Hills. That stretch of road serves Forest Ridge Elementary, the Central Ridge Library and a park. All are appropriate locations for sidewalks based on public safety considerations for dark, narrow or busy roadways. More and more, people are walking and biking to get to where they want to go, and Citrus County slowly has been transforming itself into a more walkable, bikable community. Its unfortunate that allowances were not made for sidewalks or multi-use paths in earlier planning stages, especially in the more heavily residential areas. Future development should include walkability features, which increase a developments value. As these sidewalk projects move forward, planners and funding entities need to use common sense. We all remember the public outcry prompted by construction of sidewalks on both sides of S.R. 44 between Inverness and Crystal River. Partway through, that project was changed so just a single side was paved. Citrus County needs to prioritize these projects. Theres always a cost/benefit analysis to be done in planning and staging construction projects. The cost of a serious injury or death is higher than anyone wants to pay.

Ive seen them twice already. In fact, last night the truck come through to pick up cats and take them away. I hope they never have better luck. They have a dog, so maybe some day someone will take him Animals shouldnt be abused and taken away from their loved ones. Thats no way to make friends with your neighbors.

Cigarettes were called coffin nails even when I was a child some 80 years ago.Not all treated fairlyIm calling regarding the article (Man offers different take on infamous reform school) in todays paper, Feb. 11, by Mr. Massingill about his time spent at Mariannas reform school. Thats good for him to share, but he had no business rejecting Mr. Blount. He has no idea what happened at that reform school.

Deed restrictions do not count in Citrus Springs, from what I see. Ive called deed restrictions several times on people that keep terrible properties and the law states that they have to go next door and tell that person that youre the one that complained, so they egg your house the next day. It really doesnt make any sense at all.Not out of proportionId like to make a comment as far as your article in the paper Feb. 11, Man offers different take on infamous reform school. It said in the article that everything was blown out of proportion. So what are you telling me? Fifty-five graves is blown out of proportion? Oh, and by the way, they were not just regular graves; they were unmarked graves. That means theyre trying to hide something.

High cost of electricityI live in a two-bedroom, one-bath, 45-foot mobile home and today I just received my electric bill $130. Are you kidding me? Thing is, I hardly had my heater on. I have been freezing to death knowing that my electric was going to be high, but that high? I just moved up here from Fort Myers and had a three-bedroom, two-bath house and never had an electric bill that high ever, running my air night and day. Leesa Schlarb Floral CityBuilder kept his promiseMy husband and I sold our Citrus Hills home on Nov. 1, 2013. We are building a new home and renting until our new home is finished. It is extremely important that we be in a new home within three months time. In fact, that was the main factor in who we chose to use for our new home. I do business from a home office. Weve already moved once to the rental. I have been very concerned about my being on top of business and my clients ability to reach me with yet another move to come. We weighed our options. A friend recommended a builder from Bushnell who she and her father know personally. We gave a call to the company L. Norman Adams Builders. We spoke with Richard Ricky Hibbard, VP of the company who made an appointment to meet with us right away. At that time, we were between two different builders. Ricky told us I want to build our home. He told us he can do it in the time we need it done. That, and knowing friends of ours know of the company and Ricky personally, sold us on L. Norman Adams Builders of Bushnell. Of course after hiring the builder, we still had to wait and see that promises would actually come through. That was yet to be seen at that point. Having built a home before, we were worried that it would not be done as quickly as Ricky told us he could do it. Friends and family did not believe it could happen that quick. Lo and behold it is going to be done well in advance of the threemonth mark. Ricky kept his promises. He has pushed to get things taken care of quickly. Despite the fast work, there has been absolutely no slack or scrimping on the quality of work. Ricky told us he had workers lined up just waiting for the call to begin work and get it done. He said hed do his best to push for permits as quickly as possible. He made it happen. With all of the bad going on these days, its refreshing to have good experiences with people you work with. We highly recommend L. Norman Adams Builders of Bushnell to anyone with plans to build. Whether it be a commercial building or personal home. The company and Ricky have been nothing short of professional. They do real quality work and stand by their word. They deserve recognition and people deserve to hear about their fantastic work. There are a lot of builders out there people are always looking for firsthand recommendations. Here is a good recommendation. We can tell you firsthand.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Lawmakers signaled a difficult battle ahead for the Obama administrations plan to dramatically overhaul the nations military, voicing opposition Tuesday to proposed cuts in benefit packages, longstanding weapons programs and bases that mean money and jobs across America. The skepticism from both Republicans and Democrats augured poorly for Defense Secretary Chuck Hagels vision of shrinking the Army to its smallest size in three-quarters of a century and creating a nimbler force more suited to future threats than the large land wars in Iraq and Afghanistan over the last decade. Tuesdays advance of a new veterans bill also suggested Congress may be more interested in increasing military spending in a midterm election year. The cuts will weaken our nations security while the threats we face around the world are becoming more dangerous and complex, Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham, two leading GOP hawks, said in a joint statement. Now is not the time to embrace a defense posture reminiscent of the years prior to World War II, they said, without outlining substitute cost reductions. Tensions exist in both parties. GOP hawks are lining up against tea party supporters keen to rein in spending, while Democrats backing the Obama administration must deal with colleagues from military-heavy districts and states fretful about the potential fallout. Automatic spending cuts that landed heavily on the military were only eased somewhat by a budget agreement two months ago. Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama has ordered the Pentagon to plan for a full American withdrawal from Afghanistan by the end of this year should the Afghan government refuse to sign a security agreement with the U.S, the White House said Tuesday. However, in a call with Afghan President Hamid Karzai, Obama also said the U.S. could still keep a limited troop presence in Afghanistan after 2014 if the agreement is ultimately signed. He acknowledged that Karzai was unlikely to sign the bilateral security agreement himself, leaving the fate of the continued U.S. troop presence in Afghanistan to the winner of the countrys April elections. We will leave open the possibility of concluding a BSA with Afghanistan later this year, the White House said in a summary of the call between the two leaders. However, the White House added that the longer we go without a BSA, the more likely it will be that any post-2014 U.S. mission will be smaller in scale and ambition. Tuesdays call was the first direct contact between Obama and Karzai since last June, underscoring the White Houses frustration with the Afghan leaders refusal to sign the security agreement. The pact would give the U.S. a legal basis for having forces in Afghanistan after 2014, and also allow it to use bases across the country. The White House has repeatedly said it would not leave American troops in Afghanistan without the agreement. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called Obamas order to the Pentagon a prudent step given the likelihood that Karzai will not sign an agreement. However, he said the Pentagon would also continue to make plans for a possible U.S. mission in Afghanistan after this year, which would focus on counterterrorism and training Afghan security forces. The Pentagon has long had contingency plans for multiple options in Afghanistan. However, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said Tuesday that until now, the military was not actively planning for a complete withdrawal. Now we will, the Pentagon press secretary said. Associated PressFORT EUSTIS, Va. Only a small fraction of Army women say theyd like to move into one of the newly opening combat jobs, but those few who do say they want a job that takes them right into the heart of battle, according to preliminary results from a survey of the services nearly 170,000 women. That survey and others across the Army, publicly disclosed for the first time to The Associated Press, also revealed that soldiers of both genders are nervous about women entering combat jobs, but say they are determined to do it fairly. Men are worried about losing their jobs to women; women are worried they will be seen as getting jobs because of their gender and not their qualifications. Both are emphatic that the Army must not lower standards to accommodate women. Less than 8 percent of Army women who responded to the survey said they wanted a combat job. Of those, an overwhelming number said theyd like to be a Night Stalker a member of the elite special operations helicopter crews who perhaps are best known for flying the Navy SEALS into Osama bin Ladens compound in 2011. Last year, top Pentagon officials signed an order saying women must have the same opportunities as men in combat jobs and the services have been devising updated physical standards, training, education and other programs for thousands of jobs they must open Jan.1, 2016. The services must open as many jobs to women as possible; if they decide to keep some closed, they must explain why. The Army says that about 200,000 of its 1.1million jobs are either direct combat or related jobs such as field artillery, combat engineers and so on. Thats roughly 20 percent of the force, though the direct-combat frontline fighters make up roughly half of that or about 9 percent. Throughout last year, the Army emailed questionnaires to activeduty, reserves and Army National Guard members to gauge soldiers views on the move to bring women into combat jobs. The results from the survey sent to women showed that just 2,238 or 7.5percent of the 30,000 who responded said they would want one of the infantry, armor, artillery and combat engineer jobs. Army officials also polled men and women on their concerns about the integration. And they asked senior female leaders to say whether they would have chosen combat jobs if theyd been given that chance 10 or 20 years ago. All agreed the physical standards for the jobs should remain the same. Bonanza Associated PressThis is one of the six decaying metal canisters filled with 1800s-era U.S. gold coins unearthed in California by two people who want to remain anonymous. The value of the Saddle Ridge Hoard treasure trove is estimated at $10 million or more. Couple finds gold coin stashLOS ANGELES A Northern California couple out walking their dog on their Gold Country property stumbled across a modernday bonanza: $10 million in rare, mint-condition gold coins buried in the shadow of an old tree. Nearly all of the 1,427 coins, dating from 1847 to 1894, are in uncirculated, mint condition, said David Hall, co-founder of Professional Coin Grading Service of Santa Ana, which recently authenticated them. Although the face value of the gold pieces only adds up to about $27,000, some of them are so rare that coin experts say they could fetch nearly $1 million apiece. I dont like to say oncein-a-lifetime for anything, but you dont get an opportunity to handle this kind of material, a treasure like this, ever, said veteran numismatist Don Kagin, who is representing the finders. Its like they found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Kagin, whose family has been in the rare-coin business for 81 years, would say little about the couple other than that they are husband and wife, are middle-aged and have lived for several years on the rural property where the coins were found. They have no idea who put them there, he said. New index: This winters miserableDETROIT A new winter misery index confirms what many Americans in the Midwest and East know in their all-too-chilled bones: This has been one of the harshest winters of our lifetimes. And nowhere has been hit harder than Detroit. National Weather Service meteorologist Barbara Mayes Boustead created an index a couple of years ago to judge the severity of winters based on snowfall and plunging temperatures. For Detroit, this is the most extreme winter since 1950. Boustead calls it a misery index. Detroit has plenty of company. Half of the 24 cities she looked at are slogging through winters that are among the 10 harshest since 1950. That includes Chicago, Philadelphia, Indianapolis and New York.NASA to research Calif. droughtFRESNO, Calif.

Associated PressTAMPA Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston has no plans to stop being a two-sport man. Im just 20-years old, Winston said Tuesday after Florida State lost 8-3 in the New York Yankees spring training opener. This is my life, man. I want to play both as long as I can. I love both of them. Ive got a strong passion for both. Florida States quarterback in the fall, Winston went 0 for 2 in the Seminoles exhibition game against the Yankees. He grounded out to second base while facing Shane Greene in the sixth and struck out looking on a full-count pitch from Bryan Mitchell two innings later. Obviously, hes a great talent, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. I guess he had a football injury in the championship game which kept him from hitting for a while. But hes just starting to pick up the bat again. I guess he had torn a ligament in his left index finger. Winston has made three scoreless appearances as a closer this season but didnt get a chance to pitch against his favorite baseball team. Seminoles coach Mike Martin said Winstons arm was a little tender after his outing Saturday. There were really not any plans for him to pitch, Martin said. Not throwing today gives him Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday off before he pitches again. We felt that would be the best way to approach it. Florida State plays Miami on Friday. Winston played in the field twice previously this year, getting a hit in his lone at-bat.

First test passed Playing first game at No. 1, UF nips Vandy Associated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn. Florida coach Billy Donovan knows his newly top-ranked Gators are an even bigger target for opponents. They just keep finding ways to finish off victories. Dorian Finney-Smith scored 19 points, and Florida, playing its first game at No. 1, held off Vanderbilt 57-54 on Tuesday night to clinch at least a share of its second straight Southeastern Conference title and seventh overall. The Gators are 13-2 in games decided by single digits after losing all six last season, and Donovan said their margin for error is not very big. Were not an overly talented team, were just not, Donovan said. And what these guys have done up to this point in time it really has been pretty remarkable in my opinion. Theyve done a really good job. ... But I think sometimes when you see a team with a high ranking you think dominance, you think they just blow everybody out. Thats not what we are or who we are. Patric Young added 12 points for the Gators (26-2, 15-0 SEC), who continued the best season in school history by winning their 20th straight game, and they will have a chance to claim their third SEC title in four years all to themselves with a win against LSU on Saturday. Humbling to know that we can come from where we were not being able to do it last year and be able to finish out these close games this year, Young said. The Commodores (15-12, 7-8) beat Florida 83-70 the last time the Gators came into Memorial Gym ranked No. 1, on Feb. 17, 2007. Coach Kevin Stallings only has seven healthy scholarship players right now, and they proved no match for Floridas smothering defense and much deeper bench. We did a good job, but thats why theyre the No. 1 team in the country, Stallings said. Theyve got weapons. They throw it to the open guy, and that guy usually delivers. Thats why theyve lost two games. The Commodores sure made it interesting. Kyle Fuller missed a tying 3 in the final seconds when Luke Kornet was guarded closely by Young, and Dai-Jon Parker missed a putback attempt. Coach drew up a play for Luke to run a flare screen, but when he got it Patric was kind of on him, said Fuller, who scored the final seven points for Vandy. When I got it I thought I created enough space, but when it left my hand it just didnt feel right. Rod Odom scored 12 points and Parker added 11 as Vanderbilt outshot Florida 48.8 percent (20 of 41) to 40.4 percent (21 of 52). The Commodores hit four of eight 3-point attempts in the second half to stay close. The Commodores came in 8-16 all-time against top-ranked teams tapping into what they like to call Memorial magic in Nashville. The old gym wasnt sold out Tuesday night, but fans certainly were as loud as they have been all season trying to urge Vanderbilt to an improbable upset. Florida led 32-25 at halftime and pushed that out to 53-45 only to see Vanderbilt rally each time. Fullers three-point play with 3:16 remaining made it 5350. Finney-Smith hit a free throw, then Vanderbilt forced a shot clock violation when Wilbekins desperate shot from long range banked off the backboard and rim. Fuller made two free throws with a minute left. Finney-Smith got the ball wide open and knocked down a 3 with 30.6 seconds to go for the clinching basket. Finney-Smith had been in a slump, scoring in double digits only once in the past 11 games. I just shot the ball with confidence, Finney-Smith said. Usually, I throw it in for Patric, but the forward was holding for Pat so I could replace, we did a roll and replace, and I was wide open for 3. Veteran could fill No. 5 spot on Rays staff Associated PressErik Bedard is excited about the prospect of helping the Tampa Bay Rays get back to the playoffs. The 34-year-old left-hander signed a minor league contract on the eve of the start of spring training and is being given an opportunity to compete for a job as the teams No. 5 starter. Bedard struggled the past two seasons, going 11-26 with a combined 4.78 ERA for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Houston Astros. The Rays will decide over the next few weeks if hes capable of filling in for the injured Jeremy Hellickson, whos expected to miss the first six to eight weeks of the season after undergoing elbow surgery. Bedard, who turns 35 on March 5, was 4-12 with a 4.59 ERA in 32 games, including 26 starts, for the Astros in 2013. Two years ago, he went 7-14 with a career-worst 5.01 ERA in 24 starts for the Pirates.

This tournament offers the unique opportunity to compete in singles. Another distinction it has, compared with most other tournaments, is the number of division players can choose from: 17 to be exact. Mens and Womens; A,B,C and Juniors singles. Mens, Womens and Mixed; A,B,C, and Juniors doubles. If you have ever been involved with the organization of a tournament, you know that this number of divisions can be a nightmare to pull off in one weekend. That is the reason that players should consider not playing in more than two events. If you prefer to play singles, one division is probably plenty. The entry fee is $20 for one event, $10 for the second event. The organizers will also accept donations of gently used clothing and/or canned food for the Family Resource Center. For more information or to sign up please contact one of the following people: Tournament Directors: Cindy Reynolds or AJ Glenn at 697-3089; Sally deMontfort at 795-9693 or deMont@ embarqmail.com; Eric van den Hoogen at 352-382-3138 or hoera@juno.com. Eric van den HoogenON TENNIS Learn to play tennis with some local pros In the tee box Associated PressPALM BEACH GARDENS Imagine being one-third of the way through the PGA Tour season and having a slight edge over Tiger Woods in the FedEx Cup. I would say, God, Im playing well, said Joe Ogilvie. Except that hes not. But he does have a slight edge over Woods, who is hardly playing at all. The points distribution system goes down to the very decimal. Ogilvie finished in a two-way tie for 74th at the Phoenix Open, but because one full point is awarded only to 70th place, he earned 0.91 points. Woods did not make the 54-hole cut at Torrey Pines and finished in a two-way tie for 80th, thus receiving 0.79 points. So at least Ogilvie has that going for him. It is amazing that were one-third of the way through the season, Ogilvie said. But hes playing the Honda Classic, so I know hes looking at the stats and saying, If I can just get ahead of Ogilvie, I should be OK for the rest of the year. Woods has said hes having a hard time getting his head around the wraparound season that started in July. That should start to clear up this week at the Honda Classic, which the No. 1 player sees as the start to his season. The Florida Swing is better known as the road to the Masters, and its time for Woods to get into gear. Hes in good company, of course. Masters champion Adam Scott, who has played twice as much as Woods this season on the PGA Tour (that would be two tournaments) is holding steady at No. 101 in the FedEx Cup. Hes three spots ahead of Rory McIlroy. Thats what prompted NBC Sports analyst Johnny Miller to effectively dismiss the three wins this season by Jimmy Walker, the winners of the tournaments last fall (which include Webb Simpson and Dustin Johnson), or even the 64-64 weekend by Bubba Watson when he won at Riviera. Weve had a lot of good stories, Miller said. But I think now the guns are back and probably ready to do something in the next couple weeks. So I dont see players that maybe are the second-tier players ... I think the big boys are warmed up and ready to go. Some of them are, anyway. Scott followed his amazing run Down Under with a pair of top 10s in Hawaii before taking a six-week break. McIlroy had chances to win at Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Woods is the mystery, though its early, even if the PGA Tours new schedule says otherwise. He has played only four times since the Presidents Cup last October the Turkish Airlines Open, his World Challenge against an 18-man field, Torrey Pines and Dubai. He missed the 54hole cut at Torrey Pines with his worst score in America (79), and he tied for 41st in the Dubai Desert Classic. Woods said he spent most of the offseason trying to get my body organized, and he said his game was slow to come around. But hes playing three of the next four weeks, including title defenses at Doral and Bay Hill. Even with 14 tournaments already in the books, there is a sense the PGA Tour season is just started. Besides, at this stage in his career, its all about being ready for the majors for Woods. He is not unlike Jack Nicklaus at age 38. Nicklaus played only five times before the Masters in 1978, and he played two events a month in the heart of the season (February through August). Associated PressWith about one-third of the PGA season gone, Tiger Woods will start his year at the Honda Classic on Thursday in Palm Beach Gardens. Woods finally set to play PGA event in 2014

Youd like to think that putting him in front of our defense is going to make (his numbers) even better. ... He could be better than a .500 pitcher, Maddon said, adding that one of the keys to Bedards success with the Orioles was he was able to throw something other than a fastball in a fastball count for a strike. He was uncanny at that. Thats why I thought he really ruled when he was with Baltimore. Bedard was 40-34 in five years with the Orioles. He won 15 games in 2006 and was just as impressive the following year, when he was 13-5 with a 3.16 ERA in 28 starts. Injuries curtailed his production following a trade to Seattle in 2008, and Bedard is happy to have an opportunity to get his career back on track with a contender. The Rays have made the playoffs four of the past six seasons. Theyre a winning organization. Theyve been consistent the last five, six years, and everybody wants to be a part of that. Ive always heard good things from other players that its fun to be here, relaxed, and you just play ball, Bedard said after throwing a batting practice session. BEDARDContinued from Page B1

Rodney Hood scored 21 points to help No. 6 Duke beat Virginia Tech 66-48 on Tuesday night. Rasheed Sulaimon added 15 points for the Blue Devils (23-6, 12-4 Atlantic Coast Conference), who jumped to a 24-4 lead midway through the first half and never trailed though they struggled to land a game-finishing blow on the Hokies. Duke didnt shoot the ball particularly well and its outside shooting was streaky, but it still had relatively little trouble against a Virginia Tech team that has won just once since the start of the calendar year. The lastplace Hokies (9-18, 2-13) had a strong start to the second half and got within seven points, but never seriously threatened what would have been an improbable comeback in Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Blue Devils finished the game shooting 39 percent, including 10 for 33 from 3-point range well below their ACCleading 40.7 percent. The Blue Devils had completed a stretch of four games in eight days with Saturdays home win against then-No. 1 Syracuse, which came about 48 hours after the weather-delayed rivalry loss at North Carolina.Minnesota 95, No. 20 Iowa 89MINNEAPOLIS Austin Hollins scored a career-high 27 points on 8-for-10 shooting, DeAndre Mathieu had 19 points and seven assists and Minnesota bounced back from a monthlong slump with a 95-89 win over No. 20 Iowa. Hollins made all seven of his free throws for the Gophers (18-11, 7-9 Big Ten), who won for just the third time in their last nine games by making 13 of their last 14 free throws over the final 70 seconds. Charles Buggs came off the end of the bench to score a career-high 13 points. Roy Devyn Marble had only five of his 24 points in the second half for the Hawkeyes (19-8, 8-6).

Trevor Ariza added 22 points and hit all five of his 3-point attempts, and Marcin Gortat had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Wizards, who made 10 of 16 3-pointers and have won a season-high four in a row to move one game above .500. They also improved to 2-6 this season without Nene, who sprained the MCL in his left knee Sunday in a 96-83 win at Cleveland.

Indiana improved its league-leading record to 43-13. Kent Bazemore finished with a careerhigh 23 points and Jodie Meeks added 15 for the Lakers (19-38), who have the worst record in the West. The loss also ended Los Angeles three-game winning streak at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Lakers stayed closer than expected through the first 2 1/2 quarters and trailed just 59-58 early in the third.Raptors 99, Cavaliers 93CLEVELAND DeMar DeRozan scored 16 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter, and the Toronto Raptors won for the sixth time in seven games with a 99-93 victory over the injury-riddled Cleveland Cavaliers. Terrence Ross hit a 3-pointer with 3:02 remaining to put Toronto ahead 9089. DeRozan dunked on a baseline drive and added two free throws to give the Raptors a 94-91 lead with 1:23 remaining. The All-Star hit three more free throws in the final 27 seconds to put away the game.

Associated PressWASHINGTON Even the scoreboards in high school gyms will have to advertise only healthy foods under new rules announced Tuesday by the Obama administration. Promotion of sugary drinks and junk foods around campuses during the school day will be phased out under the rules, intended to ensure that such marketing is brought in line with health standards that already apply to school foods. That means a scoreboard at a high school football or basketball game eventually wouldnt be allowed to advertise Coca-Cola, for example, but it could advertise Diet Coke or Dasani water, which is also owned by Coca-Cola Co. Same with the front of a vending machine. Cups, posters and menu boards which promote foods that dont meet the standards would also be phased out. Ninety-three percent of such marketing in schools is related to beverages, and many soda companies already have started to transition their sales and advertising in schools from sugary sodas and sports drinks to their own healthier products. Still, companies are spending $149 million a year on marketing to kids in schools, according to USDA. The proposed rules are part of first lady Michelle Obamas Lets Move initiative to combat child obesity, which is celebrating its fourth anniversary this week. Mrs. Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced the new rules at a White House event. The idea here is simple our classrooms should be healthy places where kids arent bombarded with ads for junk food, the first lady said. Because when parents are working hard to teach their kids healthy habits at home, their work shouldnt be undone by unhealthy messages at school. The rules also would allow more children access to free lunches and ensure that schools have wellness policies in place. The proposed rules come on the heels of USDA regulations that are now requiring foods in the school lunch line to be healthier. Rules set to go into effect next school year will make other foods around school healthier as well, including in vending machines and separate a la carte lines in the lunch room. Calorie, fat, sugar and sodium limits will have to be met on almost every food and beverage sold during the school day at 100,000 schools. Concessions sold at afterschool sports games would be exempt. The healthier food rules have come under fire from conservatives who think the government shouldnt dictate what kids eat and from some students who dont like the healthier foods. At the White House event, Mrs. Obama defended herself against critics, saying that I didnt create this issue. This new approach to eating and activity is not just a fad, and its not just a movement, she said. Nowhere is this more clear than in our schools. Aware of the backlash, the USDA is allowing schools to make some of their own decisions on what constitutes marketing and asking for comments on some options. For example, the proposal asks for comments on initiatives like Pizza Huts Book It program, which coordinates with schools to reward kids with pizza for reading. Rules for other school fundraisers, like bake sales and marketing for those events, would be left up to schools or states. Twice a year, students are introduced to the local electoral process registering to vote, making an informed decision and finally voting by the Supervisor of Elections office. Twice a year, with our voter and registration program, we go in and give a presentation on the electoral process, voting, who is up for election and how do you qualify, said Patrick Thomas, voter outreach coordinator. We give them the registration form and give them the opportunity to vote. There is a PowerPoint presentation and now the video component. Four years ago, Crystal River High School created an American Idol-themed video that showcased to students how voting works. When students at the Academy of Environmental Science saw this video, they wanted to create one with a Survivor theme. From our perspective, when we go into the schools, it is always fun for the students to see fellow students putting on a video, said Supervisor of Elections Susan Gill. Its better than us showing them a video that they are not interested in. Thus began the challenge. They did 100 percent of it, said instructor Chris Monrad. All I gave them was time and resources. They wrote it, produced it and edited it with their own equipment. Students spent time at a Crystal River beach and at the Marine Science Station filming their project. They created a surprise ending by having an unlikely contestant win, and captured the reactions of the other contestants to the surprise, seemingly unqualified winner. And they learned not only about voting and elections, but about production. The night scenes in particular were our struggles, a student said. The tribal councils were tough because it was rainy and windy. The beach scene we also struggled with because we had to shoot it two different days. We thought we had great footage the first day. But when we listened to it we realized that we couldnt hear anything due to the wind. The Supervisor of Elections Office will be taking the video around to the area high schools as a tool to educate other students. We are happy with the way that things turned out, and we cant wait to show it to other schools, Gill said.EDUCATIONCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEWEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014 C3 000HEGU Proceeds Benefit Citrus County Blessings The Path Community Food Bank of Citrus County March 13, 2014 5:00 p.m. 9:00 p.m. Rock Crusher Pavilion $ 50 Donation Per Person Hog, Buffalo, Gator, Ribs, Brisket, Chicken and More, plus Open Bar & Craft Beer, Music, Door Prizes and Raffles!

But if youre checking out the folks around the table, look again. This rock star sits right on the table inside your saltshaker! Salt is the only rock that humans eat. Its essential for human life, and it has helped to support whole civilizations. The Mini Page spoke with Mark Kurlansky, the author of The Story of Salt, to learn more about this rock star of the spice cabinet.What is salt? Salt is a compound, or combination, of two elements: the metal sodium (Na) and the gas chlorine (Cl). By themselves, these two elements can be quite dangerous. But working together, they make sodium chloride salt.Where in the world? In the United States, most of our salt comes from mines. Salt mines are found in the south-central and upper Midwest areas of the U.S., particularly near Detroit, with a few in the West. In a salt mine, layers of salt have been deposited over many millions of years. The salt in mines is extremely pure, or clean. Workers dig out chunks of salt and crush them. Or they may pump water into the mine and then pump out the brine, or salty water. The brine is mechanically evaporated so that just the salt remains.Salt beds In countries that have more coastline, salt producers section off some shoreline, collect seawater, and let the water evaporate, leaving salt crystals behind. This method is very cost-effective, but it takes longer. Less than 10 percent of the salt produced today is used for food. The biggest use of salt is for de-icing roads during winter. Salt is used in making medicines, to treat water and for agriculture. Its also used to make some plastics and aluminum.

Salt doesnt really melt the ice that falls on roads. But it does make the freezing point of water lower. So when icy rain or snow hits a treated street, conditions have to be colder for the street to freeze compared to an untreated street. The ice in both bowls melted, but the temperature of the saltwater rose faster than the temperature of the regular ice water.

We need it to move oxygen and send nerve signals. When early humans still hunted and ate mostly wild animals, they got the salt they needed from the blood and flesh of the animals. But as humans began farming and eating more fruits and vegetables, they had to find salt elsewhere. They also had to feed salt to the animals they raised.Preserving food Salt made it possible for people near and far to trade the foods they refrigerators or freezers in ancient times. But early people discovered that salt could preserve, or keep food fresh. It killed bacteria and removed moisture, where some bacteria grow. Learning to preserve food also gave people the ability to travel far from home, because they could take food with them. (There werent any fastfood restaurants along the way, either!) Being able to preserve food for trade with other countries gave some groups of people enormous power. For salt production provided half of the governments money. Those little white Salting away Preserved food also allowed people to plan for times when food was in short preserve fish and meat. They also used salt to mummify dead bodies.In North America controlled the salt trade at different times. When Europeans arrived in use mostly European salt to preserve their foods and furs.

Next week, The Mini Page is all about the hilarious Harlem Globetrotters. The Atlantic Ocean In the late 1400s, explorers figured out they could sail around the the idea of trading with the New World. Many of these countries were part of a huge fishing industry. The fish, mostly cod, had to be salted so it would taste and travel better. Northern European countries, where the fish were caught, made trade agreements with more southern countries, where the sun and dry weather helped produce more sea salt. For example, England cooperated with Portugal. As people moved west, canals were built to move salt and other products to new settlements. The Erie Canal connected Lake Erie with the Hudson River. Technology kicks salt aside foods to preserve them, and later refrigerating and freezing them, salt lost much of its value.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY26, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Denis Waitley, a founding member of the National Council on Self-Esteem, said, Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning. That is true, but sometimes, at the bridge table, trying for an extra trick can prove very expensive. Still, occasionally a defender can dangle a tempting carrot that leaves declarer thinking he has a no-cost shot at an overtrick. In this deal, South is in three no-trump, and West leads the heart 10. How might West tempt declarer into an indiscretion? South should open one no-trump. Yes, the club holding of two honors doubleton is a minus, but the five-card suit is a compensating plus. Declarer starts with seven top tricks: three hearts (given the opening lead), one diamond and three clubs. Obviously, he will attack clubs. However, West can set a nasty trap for South. Declarer takes the first trick in his hand and cashes the club king. West should play his five. Then, when South continues with the club queen, West should drop his eight. He is trying to make it look as though he started with J-8-5 and East with the 6-4-doubleton (and was starting a high-low with his six). If declarer falls for the ruse, he will win the third trick with his queen and suddenly find that he cannot make the contract. Instead, South must overtake his club queen with dummys ace and continue with the club 10 to drive out Wests jack. Then declarer gets at least three hearts, one diamond and five clubs.

I have liked this young lady for seven years since high school. Our relationship has been on the friend side, although I have shown her that I like her. Recently, she started to talk to another young man who has quite a history with girls. He has cheated on the last two of his three girlfriends. I am fine if she dates someone else, but I am concerned that she will end up hurt if she sets her sights on this particular guy. I do not mind if we dont date, but our friendship is in jeopardy. We used to talk every day during lunch, but now she is talking to another friend and ignores me. She told me that she wants our friendship to continue, but she is the one destroying it. I am confused. How do I preserve this friendship? Concerned Friend Dear Concerned: Is your friend aware of this guys history? You can express your concern, but then please back off. She is apparently willing to be hurt, and if you try to protect her too much, she may end the friendship altogether. Youve been carrying a torch for this young woman for many years, and she has yet to return your affections. We think its time you broadened your circle. This onesided friendship is not healthy for you. Dear Annie: Its happened again. Ive left another nail salon because the technician working on me began talking to other manicurists in their language. Am I wrong to find this practice rude? If I am paying for their time, shouldnt their focus be on me and not on what I assume is idle gossip? One technician even took glances at the TV while using the sanding file on me. I worked for a large company and taught new hires overseas. We asked them not to converse in their language in front of customers. I guess my question is: Should I say something? To them or to the owner? Or should I simply accept that this is the norm in nail salons? Spokane Dear Spokane: This is not a personal conversation where two people are talking in a foreign language and ignoring you. That would be rude. At a nail salon, however, as long as the service is being performed satisfactorily, it doesnt matter what language they are speaking or to whom. Of course, if they are so distracted that the professional quality of their work suffers, this is cause for complaint. You should first ask the technician to focus on the services being provided, and if that doesnt help, notify management. Dear Annie: Please post my response to Miserable Forever. I, too, was married to an abusive man for 30 years. Dear Miserable: Ask your local womens shelter for assistance in exiting the home, follow-up shelter and counseling. The counseling is a must. We dont realize how much of ourselves we lose during an abusive relationship. We go from living to existing, and it took a long time to get there. You cant go from existing to living again overnight. It takes time and support. Give yourself the time to heal. You are worth it. The legal matters are important, but they are secondary to getting yourself into a safe and healing environment. It took me two years to get back on my feet and obtain my divorce. Its been three years since I vacated the marriage, and I am just now learning who I am. No one can take the steps for you or make the problem go away. Dont let fear of the future rob you of the life that is waiting. Been There and Survived Dear Been There: Thank you for your testimonial. We know it will give courage to Miserable and others like her.
