Kehr, a paramedic, and Carson, an emergency medical technician, had just come back from a non-emergency medical transport to UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville. The detectives arrested them on charges of operating a personal-use meth lab out of the Inverness home they shared with Kehrs girlfriend. According to reports, Kehr had a meth pipe and about 0.3 grams of methamphetamine in his pocket. He also later admitted to smoking meth while at work, reports state. Both Kehr and Carson were fired on the spot, Nature Coast EMS Executive Director Mike Hall said. We have absolute zero tolerance for this, Hall said. We do not tolerate it in any way. According to reports, Kehr, Carson and Stefanie Lynn Smith had all the chemicals needed to manufacture methamphetamine, several grams of finished product and numerous pieces of paraphernalia at their home on Fernpark Terrace. Kehr and Smith are the parents of two children, both under age 10, who were at school when their mother was Stefanie SmithKehrs girlfriend was also arrested, and their two children taken by DCF. Jeff Kehrparamedic arrested for operating meth lab out of his Inverness home. Heather CarsonEMT arrested, charged with intent to manufacture a controlled substance.Kitchen fire damages C.R. homeA home near Crystal River was partially damaged by fire Wednesday. According to a report by Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Tom Bosley, fire crews were dispatched to a possible structure fire at 2598 N. Crede Ave. in the afternoon. When firefighters arrived, they noticed black smoke coming from the home. According to the report, the fire was quickly brought under control. The blaze reportedly originated in the kitchen area. The homeowner told investigators it was from a cooking accident. Officials have ruled out foul play. Damage to the structure is estimated at 10 percent, with 25 percent of that believed to have been caused by smoke. State has $1B budget surplusTALLAHASSEE Florida legislators this year arent worrying about budget cuts or how to balance the state budget. Instead, the Republican-controlled Legislature will spend the next nine weeks trying to figure out how to spend an expected budget surplus of more than $1 billion. Gov. Rick Scott wants legislators to use the surplus to pay for tax and fee cuts of nearly $600 million, including a roll back in auto registration fees. Legislative leaders are largely in agreement with the governor. Still, splits are emerging over some of Scotts proposals, such as his push to increase spending on child protection investigators. From staff and wire reports MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleBrittany Arnett becomes emotional Thursday afternoon while listening to her mother Jessica Anderson, left, address Circuit Court Judge Richard Ric Howard during a change-of-plea proceeding. Arnett initially claimed innocence in the death of her infant, but Thursday changed her plea to guilty of third-degree murder. She had been charged with second-degree murder. She will serve 12 years in prison for the killing. Mom gets 12 years for killing baby Woman pleads to third-degree murder chargeA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerAn Inverness mother pleaded guilty Thursday to killing her infant boy during a fit of frustration early last year. In the plea deal, Brittany Nichole Arnett, 21, was sentenced to 12 years each on a count of thirddegree murder and child negligence. The sentences are to run concurrently. Arnett was initially charged with second-degree murder. Arnett was reportedly upset that her boyfriend had left her at home with the nearly 6-month-old baby. According to prosecutor Pete Magrino, the baby died from blunt force, specifically around the C1 and C2 cervical vertebrae on the babys spine. Magrino told Circuit Judge Richard Ric Howard the baby also had swelling of the brain. Arnett sat mostly quiet when her attorneys, assistant public defenders Ed Spaight and Trish Jenkins, entered her pleas for her. However, after Arnett was sentenced by Howard, her mother Jessica Anderson emotionally A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerA man with a history of sexual assault on children was arrested again this time for allegedly sodomizing a 6-year-old girl. Antonio Jamarcus Hosley, 22, of Beverly Hills, was arrested Wednesday and is facing one count of sexual battery or injuring the sexual organs of a child less than 12 years old. No bond was allowed. The alleged victim and her 7-year-old sibling were visiting Hosleys house when the assault reportedly occurred. According to Hosleys arrest affidavit, the girls had gone to bed for the night and were asleep on an air mattress in Hosleys room when Hosley picked up the 6-year-old and brought her to his bed. Hosley reportedly made the child perform inappropriate acts on him and then proceeded to sodomize her. The girl told investigators Hosley sodomized her again in the morning. The girls sister told investigators Hosley never touched her, but said she saw Hosley remove her sister from the air mattress and soon after heard her sister moaning in pain. The 7-year-old said she pretended to be asleep during the incident. Hosleys mother told investigators she also heard one of the girls crying Man accused of sexually assaulting 6-year-old girl PATFAHERTY Staff writerIts a small fruit with a big influence on Floral City. For one weekend every year, fresh strawberries harvested at Ferris Groves take center stage at one of Citrus Countys biggest events. The Floral City Strawberry Festival, now in its 27th year, is a significant fundraiser for the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce and various other local nonprofit organizations. With a focus on family fun, it is also a showcase for arts and crafts, local businesses and entertainment. Of course, there are strawberries for sale, along with strawberry shortcake and other sweet treats. The locally grown fruit puts a spotlight on county agriculture while highlighting the businesses, services and other attractions of the unique small community. And while the iconic Ferris Groves is historically linked to oranges, this time of year, the Ferris berry gets the attention. But the festival outgrew Floral City years ago, and is now held at the countys sprawling Floral Park. However, as a nod to its community roots, it kicks off in downtown Floral City in whats billed as a pre-event party called Berries, Brew and BBQ. According to organizers, its an opportunity for residents and visitors to get acquainted or reacquainted with what Floral City has to offer. It showcases Floral City, said Berries, brew, barbecue kick off strawberry festival Antonio Hosleybeing held without bond. MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle Red, ripe berries are center stage this weekend.

addressed the court, insisting her daughter was not the monster she is being portrayed as. Anderson blamed her daughters problems on hanging around the wrong people and singled out Arnetts ex-boyfriend for the negative influence. According to Arnetts arrest report, around noon on Jan. 27, 2013, she reportedly placed the baby in his swing and in the subsequent two hours slammed the infants face 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. Magrino told the court Thursday the baby was basically dead on arrival. Magrino told the court the medical examiners office found extensive bruising and multiple broken ribs on the baby. The autopsy also revealed, among other injuries, brain hemorrhaging, a separated spine, broken ribs and lacerations inside the babys mouth. Arnett told hospital staff she didnt know how the baby got hurt, but eventually confessed to authorities. Arnett also will get credit for time served with the deal. She has been in custody since her arrest in 2013 and has since given birth to another child. That child resides with Arnetts mother.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Its our opportunity to get people into town and show them whats here. Frank Peters, who serves on the Tourist Development Council and chairs the Floral City Heritage Council, explained the kickoff started because so many people were going by Floral City to get to the festival. We really needed something to help bring visitors to the business community, and the chamber agreed to this, he said. The event works, he said, bringing people into Floral City. We do get a lot of exposure from it, said Shannon Burns, president of the Floral City Merchants Association. She sees it as benefitting both Floral City and the Strawberry Festival. People in the county take pride in the Floral City strawberry, she said. We want them to come by and see what we have to offer. Burns, whose mother Martha was instrumental in getting the Strawberry Festival started, thinks the Friday evening kickoff will continue to evolve. We really hope its going to grow, she said. Next year we plan to invite festival vendors to participate. She said some Floral City businesses take advantage of the opportunity and remain open Friday evening. The economic impact of these festivals is huge for the community, said Josh Wooten, Chamber of Commerce president and chief executive officer. We fill up hotel rooms and we have a lot of traffic that comes in. Wooten said that unlike the Manatee Festival, the Strawberry Festival is in a more remote part of the county. To mitigate that, for the past couple of years the chamber has partnered with the Floral City Merchants Association to integrate the businesses of Floral City into the festival. We do that by having the Friday night kickoff, right there on town square, where the library is on Orange Avenue, Wooten said. We also have buses running from downtown Floral City to the festival in the hopes they will come back and shop in Floral City. We want to showcase that beautiful little town. The festival averages about 15,000 attendees, with Berries, Brew and BBQ luring 700 to 1,000. Berries, Brew and BBQ is free to the public. Admission to the festival Saturday and Sunday is $3.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com.

Department of Children and Families took custody of the children. All of the meth was being manufactured for their own use and not for sale, sheriffs spokeswoman Lindsay Blair said. Hall said he hadnt realized Kehr admitted to using meth at work. We werent aware that was going on, he said. Both Kehr and Carson began working at Nature Coast EMS about the same time Kehr in June 2013 and Carson two months later. Kehr, 39, had a paramedic background in the Tampa Bay area and Pennsylvania. For Carson, 20, this was her first job in the field, having gone through the Nature Coasts EMT school, Hall said. Nature Coast EMS has 105 workers, including 80 in the field, spokeswoman Katie Lucas said. All new hires are given a drug screening and undergo a criminal background check. Once hired, employees receive drug tests only with cause, Hall said. He said he didnt know if that policy would change with the arrests of Kehr and Carson. Were going to evaluate all our policies, he said. Well see what we can do to make sure this never happens again. All three were charged with possession of chemicals with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and with manufacturing methamphetamine in the presence of children, who were home during the manufacturing at various times, reports state. Kehr and Smith, 28, were also charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia. Carsons bond was set at $250,000. Bond for Kehr and Smith was set at $255,500. Hall said the arrests have had an unsettling effect at Nature Coast EMS. Were shocked, he said. Were really dedicated to serving our community. A couple of bad folks have put a tarnish on our image and were not pleased with that at all.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

Tri-County RC Club members take their (air)craft seriouslyAUGIESALZER For the Riverland NewsFog hangs heavy over the field after the Saturday morning meeting. Members slowly take their equipment out of the 50-plus vehicles in the parking lot, waiting for the weather to clear. As the haze burns off, the radio-controlled plane enthusiasts are ready and eager to begin their day of fun. Located in Dunnellon off County Road 484, the Tri-County RC Club currently has 124 members from Marion, Citrus and Levy counties. The flying club began in Inverness, but changed its name to include all three counties when it moved to Dunnellon approximately eight years ago. The club leases 77 acres from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Greenways and Trails, and the land can be used only for recreational purposes. The rented land, used by the Tri-County RC Club for meetings and fly-ins, is called the Rainbow RC Airpark. The field is an important part of the growing hobby of radiocontrolled flying, according to club president Walt Graves. We do our best to keep the field looking nice, he said. We need a big field like this because we have planes with a 1-foot to 6-foot wingspan, or larger, flying out here. This type of hobby is so broad that there is something for everyone. For safetys sake, only members of the Tri-County RC Club are allowed to use the field. They also are required to join the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), an organization dedicated to furthering the growth of model aviation. Safety is our biggest concern, and for insurance purposes everyone has to be a member of AMA, Graves said. They basically are our governing body, and we have our own rules and by-laws that we all have to follow. Safety is our top priority. One condition of membership is that newbies must meet with an instructor to review the field rules and for a flight check before they are allowed on the field. They also have a training program to teach student pilots how to take off, land and safely perform certain flying maneuvers with their planes. The club instructor stays with the student, teaching them safety and the different techniques of flying, until they are qualified to fly solo. Emily Newsom, a student at Dunnellon Middle School, is new to the club and has just recently become a student of model aviation. Im having a lot of fun learning to fly, Emily said. I try to explain to the kids at school what I do. I fly model airplanes. Her dad, Doug Newsom, was involved in the hobby for many years, but stopped seven years ago and gave his many planes to a friend. Circumstances have changed, and Doug has returned to the sport with all his old planes. I began again in January with my daughter, Newsom said. She is doing really well. Im rusty coming back, but I still enjoy it. There are six teachers in the club; Emilys is head instructor Norman Albert. At the morning meeting, Albert had just received the Crash of the Month award. No matter how careful we are crashes still happen, Albert said. The award is a reminder for everyone to be careful. The variety of planes used by members ranges from small electrics to large gas-powered craft. The fuel used in the planes is a combination of methanol, nitro and an oil blend. The club also has a variety of novelty aircraft. One example of the unusual is owned by Chris Wieland, a member for 14 years: It looks just like a lawnmower. The aircraft is 30 inches wide and 4 feet long. Nothing flies like a Toro, Wieland joked. You can fly a piece of plywood if you put enough power on it. Kevin Lee has a Blade Quadcopter with an electric battery, and Peter Goldings electric powered plane looks like a large eagle. Its the first flight for the bird, said the snowbird from London, England, with six years of flying experience. Well see how she does. But Graves emphasized that large, elaborate or even expensive planes are necessary to enjoy model aviation. You dont have to spend a ton of money, Graves said. Plans (to build a plane) are free off the Internet and they are easy to build. Twelve-year-old Xavier Delacruz has been using his simply made planes for about a year. He and his dad, Luis, have about seven planes that they made from scratch. We are here as often as we can, usually every other weekend, the elder Delacruz said. Xavier has a lot of fun and hes really getting good.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that Paradise Lakes Resort resident Sharon Fowler has a black Labrador named Laura who weighs well over the communitys threshold. Fowler said the dog is a service animal. Fowler said the association has told her to only walk the dog in specific areas and that the dog must move out of the way of pedestrians. Also, shes been told her dog is out of control. Fowler filed a civil rights lawsuit in Pasco court. The suit seeks monetary damages for mental anguish and injunctive relief.LakelandAuthorities report rare death from spider biteCentral Florida authorities are reporting a rare death from a spider bite. Polk County Medical Examiner Stephen Nelson told The Ledger that Ronald Reese of Lakeland died Feb. 16 from complications of a spider bite. Reeses father said the 62-year-old had been bitten in August by a brown recluse spider. H.K. William Reese said he required lengthy hospital stays and numerous procedures for six months after the bite. Few statistics on deaths attributed to spider bites are available. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, only two people died from spider bites between 2001 and 2005. Both were believed to be caused by brown recluse spiders. The brown recluse spider is one of just a handful of spiders that are dangerous to humans.St. PetersburgGun-sniffing dogs will patrol Tampa Bay schoolsA Tampa Bay-area school district has employed gun-sniffing dogs to alert authorities to firearms in lockers or classrooms. Beginning next week, the Labrador retrievers Macy and Roo will start making the rounds at Pinellas County Schools. The dogs can sniff-out shell casings and guns, even ones that havent been fired in years. They also can tell the difference between real firearms and toys or BB guns. The dogs will survey each school at least twice during the academic year in addition to responding to rumors and threats. They also will be used at events such as high school football games. Superintendent Michael Grego said the dogs are a really proactive and visual way to show that theres no reason why there should be one gun on campus.

SIDIBE Staff writerAn Inverness man is in custody facing lewd and lascivious molestation charges for allegedly fondling the breasts of a 10-year-old girl on several occasions. Jeffery Allen Schwartz, 51, was arrested Tuesday. No bond was allowed. The girls mother reportedly became aware of Schwartzs inappropriate behavior last summer and asked him to stop, but continued to let the child spend time with Schwartz. The child would later tell police Schwartz resumed inappropriately touching her shortly thereafter. On at least one occasion, another minor allegedly witnessed Schwartz fondling the victim. That minor then reportedly told the victims mother about the incident. The mother then called the sheriffs office, which opened an investigation. The victim said Schwartz would initiate the inappropriate touching via a game that entailed having the victim remove her clothes while Schwartz grabbed her breasts and twisted them. The victim told investigators Schwartzs game caused her pain. When Schwartz was confronted, he reportedly denied the allegations. He was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline.com.

Todays Highlight in History: On Feb. 28, 2013, Benedict XVI became the first pope in 600 years to resign, ending an eight-year pontificate shaped by struggles to move the Catholic Church past sex abuse scandals and to reawaken Christianity in an indifferent world. (Benedict was succeeded the following month by Pope Francis.) On this date: In 1953, scientists James D. Watson and Francis H.C. Crick announced they had discovered the double-helix structure of DNA. In 1993, a gun battle erupted at a religious compound near Waco, Texas, when Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents tried to arrest Branch Davidian leader David Koresh on weapons charges; four agents and six Davidians were killed as a 51-day standoff began. Ten years ago: Iraqs U.S.picked leaders failed to meet a deadline for adopting an interim constitution. Five years ago: Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, free-agent NFL defensive lineman Corey Smith and former South Florida player William Bleakley died when their boat overturned in rough seas off the coast of Florida. One year ago: In Seffner, Fla., a sinkhole opened up under a mans bedroom and swallowed him up without a trace; Jeff Bush is presumed dead. Todays Birthdays: Architect Frank Gehry is 85. Hall of Fame auto racer Mario Andretti is 74. Actress Bernadette Peters is 66. Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman is 61. Comedian Gilbert Gottfried is 59. Author Daniel Handler (aka Lemony Snicket) is 44. Country singer Jason Aldean is 37. Thought for Today: In science, all facts, no matter how trivial or banal, enjoy democratic equality.

In an interview with People magazine, Deen quoted Sam as saying he wants to be known as a football player and not a gay football player. The Missouri AllAmerican Sam recently came out as gay. Deen told the magazine she understands his viewpoint and, in her case, worries the words embattled or disgraced always will be attached to her name. The celebrity cooks fortunes fell last year after she admitted during proceedings in a lawsuit that she had used racial slurs in the past. As part of a comeback effort, shes launched a new company to oversee her restaurants and other ventures. The 67-year-old Deen called it amazing that others face controversies such as hers and come out seemingly unaffected.Schweitzer joins cable news channel as contributorBILLINGS, Mont. Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer said Thursday that hes joined cable news channel MSNBC as a contributor. The Democrats first appearance in his new role came Wednesday during an appearance on The Ed Show in which he discussed a segment on the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. Schweitzer is an outspoken proponent of the project to ship oil from Canada to Texas Gulf Coast refineries, putting him at odds with many Democrats. Hes appeared regularly on various news programs since leaving office in January 2013. In those and other public appearances, hes strived to portray himself as a common sense politician with little regard for party lines a stance he said Thursday that he intends to carry over into his new role. Rumored as a presidential hopeful, Schweitzer has visited the key Democratic caucus state of Iowa but has made no formal announcement about whether he might run in 2016. He told The Associated Press that a run is something I might consider in the future.Clay Aiken officially joins North Carolina congressional raceRALEIGH, N.C. Former American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken officially filed Thursday to run for Congress in North Carolina, saying that he wants to help end the gridlock in Washington and that no single political party has all the answers. The performer, a Democrat, turned in his paperwork at the State Board of Elections to seek the 2nd District seat currently held by Republican Renee Ellmers. Aiken, who lives in the Raleigh-Durham area, announced his bid three weeks ago and must first try to win the Democratic primary in less than 10 weeks. The 2nd District, which covers all or parts of nine counties west and southwest of his native Raleigh, is considered Republican-leaning. But Aiken said the districts voters want to choose the candidate who believes were not going to have success just based on one party or the other that we all have to work together. They are enthusiastic about seeing change, he added later. Aiken, who finished second to Ruben Studdard in TVs 2003 Idol competition, became a backhome sensation a decade ago. Aiken said lowering unemployment and veterans issues are among his top priorities. He said he thinks some changes can be made to President Barack Obamas health care overhaul law but doesnt want to repeal it.

Chronicle staffIts not often that an elephant comes to Homosassa, but Nosy, a 21-year-old African elephant, will be at Howards Flea Market from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. At 6 months old, Nosy was rescued after her entire herd in Zimbabwe was slaughtered for their ivory. Her rescuer sold her to a circus, which is currently based in central Florida. When not performing during the winter months, Nosy travels throughout Florida meeting and greeting kids of all ages. Howards Flea Market owner Alice Cushman invites the community to come and meet Nosy and take a ride on her. Pony rides will also be offered. Theres a great backstory here, Cushman said. The owner of the circus, his father had a circus in Hungary that was nationalized by the Communist Party. His father escaped and came to this country, and now the son has the circus. Howards Flea Market is at 6373 S. Suncoast Blvd., Homosassa. For information, call 352-628-3532. Associated PressAPALACHICOLA Apalachicola Bay and Floridas oyster industry are going to get some financial assistance from the federal government. State and federal elected officials said Wednesday that the U.S. Department of Commerce has approved $6.3 million in disaster assistance funding. Gov. Rick Scott said the money can be used to help the restoration of Apalachicola Bay and assist affected oystermen. Last year, federal officials declared a fishery disaster for oystermen in the Gulf Coast. The collapse of the oyster industry followed a drought that reduced freshwater into the bay. The states agriculture agency found the 2012 oyster harvest to be the lowest in two decades, dropping from 430 to 64 oysters per square meter. The historically low harvest affected an estimated 2,500 bay jobs. Before production collapsed, the bay supplied 90 percent of the states oysters and 10 percent across the country. State officials have also blamed the lack of freshwater due to increased consumption in Georgia. Oysters need a mix of both fresh and salt water. Florida last fall filed a lawsuit against Georgia with the U.S. Supreme Court over water consumption. The disaster assistance will go to hiring fishermen to lay oyster shells in the bay, which give oyster larvae someplace to attach and develop, said Shannon Hartsfield, president of the Franklin County Seafood Workers Association. The bay also has been helped by more rainfall, he said. Itll never get back to where it was, but it could get back close, and if we manage it right, it could sustain a good living for our locals, Hartsfield toldThe News Herald. The bay also received $4.2 million in federal money in November for restoration research. That funding comes from BP fines levied after the 2010 oil spill. Couple reunited with unique ring dropped in GulfVENICE A unique wedding ring lost in the Gulf of Mexico has been found by a southwest Florida treasure hunter. Sarah Whitten-Grigsby and Les Grigsby had matching titanium wedding rings with colored dots around the bands. Les Grigsbys ring slipped from his hand into the waters off Venice in June. For months, the couple would describe the ring to anyone they saw at the beach with a metal detector. Mark DesErmia of Venice found the ring in January about 50 feet from shore and tracked down the couple around Valentines Day.Another Cuban Five spy released from US prisonMIAMI A second member of the Cuban Five spy ring was released Thursday from a U.S. prison after spending more than 15 years behind bars. Fifty-year-old Fernando Gonzalez known to U.S. authorities by his alias, Ruben Campa completed his sentence at 4 a.m. local time a prison in Safford, Ariz., Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke said. Gonzalez was turned over immediately to immigration officials. He will be deported to Cuba as soon as possible, said Michelle Alvarez, spokeswoman for the Miami U.S. Attorneys Office. The five men were convicted in 2001 in Miami on charges including conspiracy and failure to register as foreign agents in the U.S. Wayne Evans, 78BEVERLY HILLSWayne Evans, 78, of Beverly Hills, Fla., passed away Feb. 24, 2014, at Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast Care Center in Inverness.

Quarterly losses narrowed as the department store trimmed expenses and reduced inventory, though revenue fell as it closed stores. The rendering, cooking oil and bakery waste recycling technology company, fell short of expectations for profit and revenue. The U.S. auto safety watchdog is investigating whether the automaker acted quickly enough in a recall linked to 13 deaths. Same-store sales rose for the first time in two years, lessening fears about the rate at which the retailer burns through cash. The electronics retailer returned to a profit and topped Wall Street expectations as it cut costs to offset declining sales. It took a few days, but the S&P 500 rose to a record high Thursday. The index had flirted with its all-time closing high in each of prior three days, only to fade in the afternoon. A jump for telecommunications stocks on Thursday helped break the streak. 20 30 40 $50 DF J Best BuyBBY Close: $25.57 -0.25 or -1.0% $15.75$44.66 Vol.: Mkt.

The Standard & Poors 500 index had moved above its previous all-time high on numerous occasions this week, only to fade in afternoon trading. On Thursday, the index stayed higher after getting a boost from strong earnings reported by a number of U.S. companies including the drugmaker Mylan and several retailers. The stock market has staged an impressive turnaround in February, after slumping at the start of the year on concerns about the prospects for growth in China and worries about the health of the U.S. economy. Growth in corporate earnings and optimism that the Federal Reserve will keep supporting the economy have helped support demand for stocks. In the last few days weve flirted with it, and now weve got the new high, said Ryan Detrick, a senior technical strategist at Schaeffers Investment Research. The timing of the new record, just before the start of spring, could help the market extend its gains, Detrick said. March has been the third-strongest month over the last 30 years, with an average gain of 1.4 percent, according to the Stock Traders Almanac. It bodes well for equities for the next couple of months, at least, said Detrick. The S&P 500 rose 9.13 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,854.29. Its previous record high close was 1,848.38, set on Jan. 15. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 74.24, or 0.5, percent, to 16,272.65. The Dow is still about 1.8 percent below its record close of 16,576.66. The Nasdaq composite climbed 26.87 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,318.93. The Nasdaq is also short of its record close of 5,048.62 set in March 2000. On Thursday, generic drugmaker Mylan led the S&P 500 index higher after reporting an 11 percent increase in fourthquarter earnings, beating analysts expectations despite higher expenses. Mylans stock climbed $4.85, or 9.4 percent, to $56.27. Stocks also got a lift from a range of retailers that reported strong earnings. J.C. Penney jumped $1.51, or 25 percent, to $7.47 after the department store chain swung to a profit in the fourth quarter after posting a big loss in the same period a year earlier. Penney also reported its first quarterly gain in a key revenue figure in more than two years. Kohls rose $1.30, 2.4 percent, to $55.74 after the department store operator reported earnings that topped analysts estimates. Revenue fell but met Wall Streets expectations. After a tough start to the year, investor sentiment has shifted in February. The S&P 500 was down almost six percent for the year at the start of February. Investors were selling stocks as manufacturing contracted in China and as currencies in emerging market nations such as Turkey and Argentina plummeted against the dollar. The S&P 500 erased those losses this month and is now positive for the year. Some of the shift in sentiment was also thanks to the new Federal Reserve chief, Janet Yellen. Stocks jumped on Feb. 11, when Yellen told Congress she would continue the central banks market-friendly, low-interest rate policies. The comments were her first since taking over from Ben Bernanke earlier this month. On Thursday, Yellen told the Senate Banking Committee that some recent economic data have suggested sluggish growth in consumer spending and employment. She said the Fed will be watching to see if the slowdown proves to be a temporary blip caused by the severe winter weather. This time, Yellens testimony didnt have the same impact on the stock market as it did earlier. BusinessHIGHLIGHTS Hospitals coping better as drug shortages persist U.S. hospitals are coping better with ongoing shortages of hundreds of medications, but a new survey indicates obtaining those drugs from alternate sources is costing them hundreds of millions of dollars. Premier Inc., the hospital group that did the survey, conservatively estimates that cost at $230 million a year for the country's 5,000 hospitals. That doesn't include costs for additional workers or overtime hours for staff searching for scarce drugs, as well as some other extra costs, which come out of hospitals already razorthin profit margins. Shortages of drugs, particularly generic injectable drugs that had been cheap, have escalated since 2005. While the number of new shortages has declined recently, the total of new and prolonged shortages keeps climbing. Causes include quality problems, recalls and the small number of manufacturers.

OPINION Page A10FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2014 Monday morning quarterbackingIt is easy to Monday morning quarterback, which is exactly the case in Mondays article in the Chroniclewhere Citrus Memorial Health Foundation discussed the termination of CEO Ryan Beaty and claimed that they now do not like the terms of the settlement that we all agreed to. To be clear, the provisions in the agreement were agreed to by both boards after much discussion and concessions by both the Foundation and the Trustees. To now claim that the CCHB held a financial gun to anyones head is not only disingenuous, it is unfair. There were many choices and options as we brought the agreement to a close. For example, both boards agreed to bring in a third party to lead the hospital until HCA took over. There was also an option to settle all lawsuits at the time of closing, as opposed to upon the signing of the LOI, which in turn would have saved taxpayer dollars as it related to the severance and payments to departing CEO Beaty. From the beginning, the CCHB has focused on accountability and transparency in its job to oversee the finances of the hospital. Financial stability and responsibility have been our mission from the very beginning. And, it is these same goals that have led us to where we are today with the closing of the deal to lease Citrus Memorial hospital on the horizon. Instead of infighting and finger pointing, I again encourage our partners at the Foundation to focus on how we can bring this closing to fruition and ensure first-class health care for Citrus County.Debbie Ressler, BSN CCHB Chairwoman Joe Rigney scholarship 20 years strongI recently received a donation to my sons scholarship fund from the class of 1993 on the 20th anniversary of his graduation. I have been very fortunate to be able to award three $1,000 scholarships in my sons name every year since 1993. I receive a $1,000 donation every year from somebody who wishes to remain anonymous. She had lost a brother in similar circumstances. I also receive a $1,000 donation from Chad Fugere, who graduated in 1994 from LHS. He was a very close friend of my son and they grew up together in Citrus Hills. I donate the third $1,000 donation. The criteria for receiving a scholarship: 1. Student must have a 3.0 GPA in their senior year. 2. Must have participated in a varsity sport in their senior year. 3. Must have been accepted to a college. 4. Must be a good kid! Thanks again to the class of 1993. Lecanto rocks!Joseph W. Rigney Lecanto Reports by presidential commissions are often like those statues that dominate public squares in Washington: massive in size, but opaque in origin and quickly obscured by a thick layer of grime. But one commission presented a report last month that reflects an unusual amount of bipartisan cooperation and good sense. It deserves far more attention than its received so far. The panel was formed by President Obama to recommend improvements in our election system after many Americans had to wait for hours to vote in 2012. In a masterstroke, the president appointed the top election lawyers from each party as cochairs: Democrat Robert Bauer and Republican Benjamin Ginsberg. (Ginsberg is a law partner of Cokies brother.) These men differ on many issues, but at heart they are professionals, not politicians. And in a capital where compromise is far too often equated with betrayal, they embraced a search for common ground. We looked for the areas where we could agree without abandoning our principles, as opposed to the areas where we knew we would end up disagreeing, Ginsberg told PBS NewsHour. Moreover, they started with facts, not fantasy. They reasserted the valuable principle that there is an objective reality that can be described and documented, a shared basis for pragmatic prescriptions. We looked at the evidence, Bauer said on PBS. We took testimony from state and local election officials. We heeded the advice of experts and looked at the most recent social science. And we looked at ... the interest and evolving expectations of voters. This is a more important and elusive ideal than it sounds. Washington is overrun today by ideological warriors who dont look at the evidence, but simply assert their prejudices and deny reality. Experts overwhelmingly agree, for example, that immigration and trade dont cost jobs, they create them; that climate change and evolution are scientifically sound; that Obama was born in Hawaii, not Kenya or Indonesia. Yet myths, rumors and outright falsehoods denying these indisputable facts continue to spread. Thats why its so refreshing to encounter a panel that assiduously listened to the evidence and the experts. And thats why their recommendations are so useful. Election rules can be highly controversial, tending to favor one party or the other, but the panel played it straight. As election law expert Heather Gerken of Yale Law School wrote, the report offers something we dont often see in policymaking circles these days: sanity. Some of the reports recommendations: Expand online registration. Americans increasingly use digital tools for banking and shopping, gaming and dating, and as Bauer put it, the voting process has to evolve in accordance with the way Americans currently live. Extend opportunities for early or mail-in voting. Voter participation in the U.S. is usually about 60 percent, well below other industrialized countries, but rates go up when voting becomes easier. In some states, the GOP has actually opposed more flexible rules, fearing they will help Democrats, but the Republicans on this panel rejected that cynical calculation. Improve voting technology. Machines in many jurisdictions, upgraded after the Florida Fiasco of 2000, are now breaking down. Says Bauer, Voters should be treated ... the way customers (are) at our best-run businesses. Open more schools as voting places. They are perfect for the job easy to find, with plenty of space and parking. But after the Newtown shooting, many communities turned skittish about allowing outsiders into their schools. The panels suggestion: Keep students and teachers at home on Election Day if security is a concern. Encourage states to exchange data from voter and motor vehicle lists. Fraud is rare, the panel said, but Republicans care deeply about this issue, and the Democrats agreed to a suggestion that could further diminish deception. The commission report has limits. Republicans in a number of states have passed voter ID laws designed to discourage voters who lean Democratic the poor, young and disabled. And the Supreme Court last year struck down a portion of the Voting Rights Act, weakening federal supervision over election rules in states with a history of racial discrimination. Both developments could restrict, rather than expand, the right to vote. The Obama administration is correct to challenge them, in the courts and in Congress. In the interest of consensus, the commission avoided both topics, but the issues they did address are still vitally important. About 8,000 local jurisdictions supervise our elections and every one of them should read the commissions report and implement its recommendations.Steve and Cokie Roberts can be contacted by email at stevecokie@gmail.com.

Now, as the lease agreement between CMH and Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) nears conclusion, CMHs more than half century as a public hospital will come to a close. Triggered by a destructive governance battle, the demise of CMH as a public hospital does not mean the medical needs of our community will no longer be served. Fortunately, millions of dollars in anticipated proceeds from the lease agreement with HCA promise to underwrite a new era of charity and community-oriented health care. In preparing for this new era, State Sen. Charlie Dean and State Rep. Jimmie Smith have filed legislation to create a community trust to oversee the proceeds. As proposed, the legislation provides a positive framework that calls for voters to elect two members of the trust board, as well as it being subject to the states Government in the Sunshine Law and annual audits by the Citrus County Clerk of Court. In moving forward, the trusts details must be carefully crafted to preserve its financial integrity as well as restore the publics lost confidence, if it is to benefit county residents for generations to come. Crafting of the trusts details should strive for community consensus and not the interests of a particular party by seeking input from all parties with a vested interest in the trusts future. Trust board membership should be large enough to represent the community at-large with staggered terms limited to four years as a guard against the pressures of internal politics and external influences. Board members should not be officers in organizations that may benefit from the trust to preclude possible conflicts of interest. The board should be prohibited from tapping into the trusts financial principal to preserve its fiscal integrity. Also, annual distributions from the trusts investments should only be made to support charity and community health care needs. The community trust promises to underwrite a new era of public health care for future generations of county residents. That promise, however, can only be realized if the governing details are developed with the best interests of our community being paramount.

Looking for the Duke billI didnt see any bill by Jimmie Smith or Charlie Dean about stopping us from having to pay Duke Energys operating costs.Fuel for thoughtIm reading the editors note (in Sound Off, page A8, Feb. 8). I notice that Tobey Phillips, spokeswoman from the (county), said its more cost effective for the county vehicles, including like the police cars, fire trucks, etc., to purchase fuel from the local gas stations vs. our own bulk fuel station in Lecanto. If thats the case, why do we have a bulk fuel station in Lecanto? Shouldnt we close it and sell it? What is the purpose of it if its more expensive?Stop the rate hikesSaturdays (Feb. 8) paper there, Chronicle, about we need some bills from our representatives, meaning Charlie Dean and Jimmie T.

Senate blocks Dems bill boosting vets benefits Associated PressWASHINGTON A divided Senate on Thursday derailed Democratic legislation that would have provided $21 billion for medical, education and jobtraining benefits for the nations veterans. The bill fell victim to election-year disputes over spending and fresh penalties against Iran. Each party covets the allegiance of the countrys 22 million veterans and their families, and each party blamed the other for turning the effort into a chess match aimed at forcing politically embarrassing votes. Republicans used a procedural move to block the bill after Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., chided GOP lawmakers about their priorities. I personally, I have to say this honestly, have a hard time understanding how anyone could vote for tax breaks for billionaires, for millionaires, for large corporations and then say we dont have the resources to protect our veterans, said Sanders, the measures chief author. Democrats noted that more than two dozen veterans groups supported the legislation. But Republicans said they still favor helping veterans while also wanting to be prudent about federal spending. Were not going to be intimidated on this, said Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee. Were going to do the right things for the veterans of America. The fight over priorities demonstrated again the bitter divisions that have restrained the legislative process in recent years. Efforts to address immigration, a tax overhaul and job creation all seem likely to go nowhere this year. Republicans criticized how most of Sanders bill was paid for with unspent money from the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and the winding down of American military involvement in Afghanistan. The GOP says those are not real savings because no one expected those dollars to be spent as those wars ended. Republicans also objected to provisions making more veterans without service-connected injuries eligible for treatment at Department of Veterans Affairs facilities. They said that would swamp an already overburdened system. The vote sidetracking the bill was 56-41, with supporters falling four votes short of the 60 they needed to prevail. Sens. Jerry Moran of Kansas and Dean Heller of Nevada were the only Republicans voting to keep the legislation alive and the only lawmakers crossing party lines on the vote. Veterans groups complained about being caught in partisan crossfire. Veterans dont have time for this nonsense and veterans are tired of being used as political chew toys, said Paul Rieckhoff, founder and CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, which supported the legislation. during the night. She said when she went to check on them, they looked like they were sleeping. Hosleys mother also told deputies that her son has an emotional/behavioral disability. She also told sheriffs officials she believed her son assaulted the girl based on his history of sexual assault on children. The arrest reports states Hosley had been arrested when he was 14 and 15 years old on charges of sexual battery on a minor. When Hosley was confronted about the allegation at home, he reportedly fled. Hosley was later apprehended and taken for medical assessment in Ocala because he was reportedly suicidal. He was later arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

Glass Associated PressIllinois Rep. Tom Demmer, R-Rochelle, shows off his Google glasses Thursday to lawmakers while on the House floor during a session at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield, Ill. Court: School can ban US flags for Mexican holidaySAN FRANCISCO A federal appeals court says high school officials in Northern California acted appropriately when they ordered students wearing AmericanflagT-shirts to turn the garments inside out during the Mexican independence celebration Cinco de Mayo. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that officials concerns of racial violence outweighed students freedom of expression rights. Administrators feared the American-flag shirts would inflame the passions of Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday.Judges say drivers can use cellphone mapsFRESNO, Calif. Drivers in California can legally read a map on their handheld cellphones while behind the wheel, a state appeals court ruled Thursday. The 5th District Court of Appeal reversed the case of a Fresno man who was ticketed in January 2012 for looking at a map on his iPhone 4 while stuck in traffic. The driver, Steven Spriggs, challenged the $165 fine and won. Spriggs was caught up by road work and grabbed his cellphone to find an alternate route when a California Highway Patrol officer on a motorcycle spotted him and stopped him to write the ticket. In their 18-page ruling, the appellate judges said Californias law prohibiting people from talking on their cellphones without a hands-free device could have been written more clearly, but it doesnt apply to looking at maps on cellphones. The law a California Highway Patrol officer used to ticket Spriggs applies specifically to people listening and talking on cellphones, not using their mobile phone in other ways, the court said. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressPHOENIX Gov. Jan Brewers veto of a bill allowing businesses to refuse service to gays exposed a fracture within the Republican Party between social conservatives and the GOPs pro-business wing, a split that Democrats hope to turn into a midterm election campaign issue. The Republican governor has made job creation and business expansion the centerpiece of her administration, and she was more than willing to disregard the wishes of social conservatives amid protests from major corporations such as American Airlines and Apple Inc. As a result, the GOP base was left dispirited, and opponents of gay marriage are struggling to find their footing after significant losses in the courts and statehouses. Its leading people to say: Were not sure where the Republican party is on something as basic as economic freedom, said Dan Holler, a spokesman for Heritage Action, a conservative group in Washington, D.C., that argued the proposal was aimed simply at allowing people to run businesses as they saw fit. There certainly is a risk, especially as you head into the midterm elections, when the turnout of your base is essential. Brewer vetoed the measure Wednesday night after Republicans ranging from Mitt Romney to her states two U.S. Senators urged her to reject the measure, which emerged from the GOP-controlled state Legislature. The bill was designed to give added protection from lawsuits to people who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays or others who offend their beliefs. Opponents called it an open attack on gays. Gay marriage is increasingly popular nationwide, and the Democratic Party already has been claiming that measures like the Arizona bill are a throwback to Jim Crow laws. The measures are inspired by the cases of a New Mexico wedding photographer and bakers in Colorado and Oregon who separately refused service for gay weddings or civil unions and have been penalized by courts. Democrats argued that the GOP would pay a price for even considering such explosive legislation. This bill should have never gone this far, and the fact that it did shows how far to the right the Republican Party has lurched, said Rep. Steve Israel, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. It is yet another reminder of the Republican brand of intolerance. GOP split over Arizona bill veto Elated Democrats hope issue will help boost fortunes in midterm elections Associated PressSIMFEROPOL, Ukraine Masked gunmen stormed parliament in Ukraines strategic Crimea region Thursday as Russian fighter jets scrambled to patrol borders, while the newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with strong backing from the West the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow granted shelter to Ukraines fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, state media said. He was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference today near the Ukrainian border. As gunmen wearing unmarked camouflage uniforms erected a sign reading Crimea is Russia in the provincial capital, Ukraines interim prime minister declared the Black Sea territory has been and will be a part of Ukraine. The escalating conflict sent Ukraines finances plummeting further, prompting Western leaders to prepare an emergency financial package. Yanukovych, whose abandonment of closer ties to Europe in favor of a bailout loan from Russia set off three months of protests, finally fled by helicopter last week as his allies deserted him. The humiliating exit was a severe blow to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who had been celebrating his signature Olympics even as Ukraines drama came to a head. Russia has pledged to respect Ukraines territorial integrity. But the dispatch of Russian fighter jets Thursday to patrol borders and drills by some 150,000 Russian troops almost the entirety of its force in the western part of the country signaled strong determination not to lose Ukraine to the West. Thursdays dramatic developments posed an immediate challenge to Ukraines new authorities as they named an interim government for the country, whose population is divided in loyalties between Russia and the West. Crimea, which was seized by Russian forces in the 18th century under Catherine the Great, was once the crown jewel in Russian and then Soviet empires. It only became part of Ukraine in 1954 when Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev transferred jurisdiction from Russia a move that was a mere formality until the 1991 Soviet collapse meant Crimea landed in an independent Ukraine. Russia flexes muscles Ukrainian president reportedly flees to Moscow; Kremlin raises stakes Associated PressA pro-Russian demonstrator waves Russian and Crimean flags from an old Soviet Army tank during a protest in front of a local government building in Simferopol, Ukraine, which is located in Crimea. Associated PressWASHINGTON Ice cream lovers beware: The government knows youre unlikely to stop after half a cup. New nutrition labels proposed Thursday for many popular foods, including ice cream, aim to more accurately reflect what people actually eat. And the proposal would make calorie counts on labels more prominent, too, reflecting that nutritionists now focus more on calories than fat. For the first time, labels also would be required to list any sugars that are added by manufacturers. In one example of the change, the estimated serving size for ice cream would jump from a half cup to a cup, so the calorie listing on the label would double as well. The idea behind the change, the first overhaul of the labels in two decades, isnt that the government thinks people should be eating twice as much; its that they should understand how many calories are in what they already are eating. The Food and Drug Administration says that, by law, serving sizes must be based on actual consumption, not some ideal. Our guiding principle here is very simple, that you as a parent and a consumer should be able to walk into your local grocery store, pick up an item off the shelf and be able to tell whether its good for your family, said first lady Michelle Obama, who joined the FDA in announcing the proposed changes at the White House. Mrs. Obama made the announcement as part of her Lets Move initiative to combat child obesity, which is marking its fourth anniversary. On Tuesday, she announced new Agriculture Department rules that would reduce marketing of less-healthful foods in schools. The new labels would be less cluttered. FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg called them a more user-friendly version. But they are probably several years away. The FDA will take comments on the proposal for 90 days, and a final rule could take another year. Once its final, the agency has proposed giving industry two years to comply.

McIlroy swung freely and walked briskly on his way to a 7-under 63 on Thursday, with birdies on the last two holes at PGA National giving him a oneshot lead over Russell Henley after the first round of the Honda Classic. If nothing else, it was big improvement from the last official round he played on PGA National. McIlroy was 7 over through eight holes last year when he became so frustrated with mounting expectations and a slumping game that he walked off the course in the middle of the second round. He said it was a mistake that he would never repeat. He apparently buried the past with his clubs, if not his head. Its not something I really thought about out there, McIlroy said. Coming in this week, I knew that I was playing well and I just wanted to try and get off to a good start. ... Regardless of what happened last year or where it is, its always nice to shoot a round like this and get yourself in the mix early. Tiger Woods wouldnt know the feeling so far this year. In his first tournament in a month, Woods couldnt make a birdie putt early and had to scramble for pars late in his round. A birdie on the last hole gave him a 71, leaving him eight shots behind.

See HONDA/ Page B4 Grip on the ball Early on, CRs Humphreys has look of an aceSEANARNOLD CorrespondentCrystal River baseball coach Bobby Stack didnt enter this season expecting a lot from Jordan Humphreys on the mound, since the junior was returning from a back injury that limited him to a spattering of relief innings last season. Hed come in and throw a good inning or two, and he closed out some close games for us last year, Stack said. I thought thats what we were going to have to do with him this year, but he came out healthy. Its a good thing because weve got kids sick and others with arm trouble, and hes come out pretty strong. Humphreys, who plays third base when not pitching, took a break over the summer to heal, and now leads the Pirates in innings (12) and strikeouts (14), while having allowed just two hits and a walk. The best judge of Humphreys effectiveness is his longtime catcher Mason Pateracki. Pateracki, a four-year varsity starter, has caught Humphreys since the latter was a freshman, and said the pair mesh well. Hes definitely dominating on his fastball, said Pateracki, whos pacing the Pirates with a .375 batting average. Not a lot of hitters are getting around on that. His changeup is actually his best pitch. Humphreys delivered six solid innings in a loss against Citrus last Friday while having his best night of the season at the plate, where he had a single and a game-tying home run over the scoreboard in the fourth inning. It was the first game I actually came out and hit the ball, Humphreys said. Im starting to see the ball better now. I think as the games go on and we see more pitching, our whole team is seeing the ball a lot better. With a strong collection of arms that also include junior Derrick Rogers, senior MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleIn two starts, Crystal River junior pitcher Jordan Humphreys has recorded 14 strikeouts in 12 innings of work, while allowing just two hits and a walk to date.

Dawson (2-0) hit one batter, but didnt walk any in an 88-pitch effort. He was very efficient, Citrus coach Brady Bogart said. He got a lot of early outs and slowed the game down the last six outs. He made some good pitches and some big pitches. Brooks Brashers sacrifice fly in the first inning to score Austin Bogart, who singled, produced the games lone run.

From staff, wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Panthers, Canes both looking for spark at plate SEANARNOLD CorrespondentCitrus and Lecanto are hoping for an offensive spark in tonights District 5A-6 tilt in Inverness. Both have counted on stout pitching to keep their respective teams in games, while the bats have been slower coming. The Hurricanes stemmed a three-game skid to start the season with back-to-back wins over Gainesville Buchholz and Crystal River last week, but are batting .150 as a team, albeit against an opening slate of opponents that have jumped out to a combined 20-5 start. Nowhere to go but up! said CHS head coach Brady Bogart, whos lamented his clubs slow bat speed this year. Weve got a lot of kids that have one or no hits, and weve only scored 10 runs (in five games) this year. Its got to get better. Dave Logues Panthers are also struggling at the plate, which has magnified the teams mistakes on the base paths and in the field. They got in the win column with a 4-2 victory at Gulf on Tuesday, but averaged just three runs a game one more than Citrus before yesterdays home meeting with Weeki Wachee. Their scheduled district opener with Dunnellon was rained out last Friday, and has yet to be rescheduled. Logue estimated his team allowed 13 unearned runs in its four early losses, which came against teams with a combined record of 16-5. Weve had some big baserunning blunders that just kill the momentum, and weve had some defensive errors, said Logue, whose team scored two runs in the eighth to beat Gulf. We dont have a lot of room for error, and its compounded on the defensive side of the ball. We werent facing teams that are going to make those mistakes. Guys are pressing at the plate, but Im optimistic, Logue continued. Theyve never really given up, they just havent finished the game. We were there in each game until basically one bad inning.

For a moment at the HSBC Womens Champions on Thursday, she thought she had made a similar mistake. After shooting a 6-under 66 to take a one-stroke lead in the opening round, Webb feared she may have forgotten to sign her scorecard. She rushed back into the scoring tent only to find her scorecard was just fine. Ive just had trouble getting out of the scorer tent since then, she said about her mistake in Australia. I walked out (today) and couldnt remember if I signed my card, which it would have been too late anyway. Swedens Caroline Hedwall and American Paula Creamer were tied for second after shooting 5-under 67, a stroke ahead of 2012 champion Angela Stanford and Taiwans Teresa Lu in joint fourth. Disqualification aside, Webb is having a strong start to the season. A week after the ill-fated Australian Ladies Masters, she won her fifth Womens Australian Open title, and 40th overall. The 39-year-old Australian has won seven majors in her long career, but none since the Kraft Nabisco Championship in 2006. Her results have been consistent, if not dominant, in recent years she had six top-10 finishes on the LPGA Tour last year and one win at the ShopRite LPGA Classic. Ive had a good career and I feel like I want to finish in the fashion that I started, she said. I just continue to work hard, and my working hard now is probably a little different to my working hard 20 years ago, but its still working hard. Webb birdied four of her first six holes on Thursday, then sank a difficult 15-foot putt to save par on the par4 11th hole. Her only mistake on the green was a close miss on the 12th hole when her birdie putt from 2 feet lipped out of the hole. Woods to get new sponsor for PGA event Associated PressPALM BEACH GARDENS The PGA Tour is closing on a deal for Detroit-based Quicken Loans to become title sponsor of Tiger Woods tournament at Congressional, The Associated Press has learned. Two people who have been told about the deal said Quicken Loans could begin its sponsorship before the next tournament, to be played June 26-29. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is not completed and has not been announced. Dan Gilbert, who owns the Cleveland Cavaliers, is the chairman and founder Quicken Loans. It would be a big boost to the Tiger Woods Foundation, which receives the net proceeds from the event currently called the AT&T National. The foundation has created seven Tiger Woods Learning Centers, three of them in the Washington, D.C., area. AT&T, in the final year of its contract, was not planning to renew the sponsorship. The Dallas-based company announced two years ago that it would sponsor the Byron Nelson Championship starting in 2015. AT&T already is under contract through 2024 as the title sponsor of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the PGA Tour. It also sponsors a Champions Tour event in San Antonio. Associated PressTiger Woods may have a sponsor in Quicken Loans for his tournament at Congressional on June 26-29. AT&T National boost Predators down Lightning 3-2 Associated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn.

Martin St. Louis had both goals for the Lightning, losers of three of their last four. With time winding down in the final period, Hornqvist collected the rebound of Mike Fishers shot and slipped it by Tampa Bay goaltender Ben Bishop.Red Wings 6, Senators 1OTTAWA, Ontario Johan Franzen scored three goals and the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Ottawa Senators 6-1.

Robin Lehner allowed six goals on 15 shots before Andrew Hammond made his NHL debut, stopping all nine shots he faced. Things fell apart for the Senators in a nine-minute in the first period. Ryan had a goal overturned after it was ruled that he kicked it in, and then the Senators leading goal scorer missed two great chances on the power play. The Red Wings later scored on consecutive shots.Capitals 5, Panthers 4SUNRISE Alex Ovechkin scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and had two assists and Troy Brouwer had two power-play goals, lifting the Washington Capitals to a 5-4 victory over the Florida Panthers.

Daniel Briere scored twice, once on the power play, and Max Pacioretty also scored with the man advantage, his 27th of the year. Brendan Gallagher netted his 15th for the Canadiens and Alexei Emelin also scored his second of the season. Crosby, who leads the NHL with 80 points, scored his 29th and added an assist.Rangers 2, Blackhawks 1NEW YORK Cam Talbot, subbing for resting Olympian Henrik Lundqvist, stopped 31 shots, and Derick Brassard and Rick Nash scored as the New York Rangers returned from the Sochi break with a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. Talbot got the nod after Lundqvist received extended work in Swedens run to the gold medal game in the Olympics. Talbot made the most of his opportunity, getting his 11th career win in 18 NHL games all this season. He was 11.6 seconds away from a shutout, but Peter Regin scored after goalie Corey Crawford was pulled. Patrick Kane nearly tied it seconds later, but Talbot stopped him with his pad. New York has won six of seven. Lundqvist is expected to play Saturday in Philadelphia when the Rangers start a back-to-back set.Sharks 7, Flyers 3PHILADELPHIA Joe Pavelski had a hat trick to move into a tie for second in the NHL in goals scored, and Raffi Torres and Logan Couture each tallied twice in their return to the lineup following injuries as the San Jose Sharks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 7-3 in the first game for both teams following the Olympic break. Pavelski, one of four Sharks Olympians, scored all three of his goals in a dominating second period when San Jose outscored the Flyers 5-0.

Ryane Clowe also scored and the special teams tallied twice on the power play and once short-handed as the Devils opened the postOlympic break with a much-needed win if it wants to make the playoffs after missing last season. Patrik Elias added a goal and two assists and Cory Schneider made 17 saves as New Jersey salvaged the final game of its four-game season series with Columbus (1-2-1). Artem Anisimov scored for the Blue Jackets and set up one by Marian Gaborik.Jets 3, Coyotes 2, SOWINNIPEG, Manitoba Olli Jokinen scored the shootout winner as the Winnipeg Jets edged the Phoenix Coyotes 3-2. Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler scored in regulation for the Jets, who continued their winning ways under new head coach Paul Maurice.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Martin Hanzal scored for Phoenix in the first game for both teams after a 19day break for the Winter Olympics. Jets forward Devin Setoguchi also beat Mike Smith in the shootout and Antoine Vermette was the only Coyotes player to get one past Ondrej Pavelec in four rounds of penalty shots. Winnipeg pulled within one point of the Coyotes (27-21-11) as both teams chase a wild-card playoff spot, although Phoenix has two games in hand.

With a 1.91 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 11 innings, junior Alex Atkinson, the winning pitcher against the Pirates last Friday, is leading the Canes starters on the mound, while sophomore Austin Bogart and junior Cy Yates remain strong bullpen options.SRCS starts strongPitching depth and the slugging of senior Adam Gage have helped Seven Rivers Christian to a 4-0 start. Four different starters Cory Weiand, Coy Phillips and Parker and Tyler Pillsbury have wins on the mound, while Gage and eighth-grader Garret Griggs each have 10 hits. The Warriors most impressive win is a 5-4 season-opening triumph at Dunnellon, which saw Gage knock a pair of doubles and drive in two runs, while Phillips added two RBIs and Weiand two hits. Parker Pillsbury earned the win before making way for Weiand in the sixth. Dunnellon is a top-notch ball club, so that was a big win for us, first-year Warriors coach Jon Bolin said. We got into a position where we got key hits and our pitching was able to keep us in the game. Weve gotten it done on the mound. I am most pleased with our pitching staff, thats for sure. I feel like we can pitch with anybody.FrenemiesFirst-year Dunnellon head coach Chris Cole makes his return to Crystal River tonight, where he was a teammate and good friend of Pirates coach Bobby Stack in high school. The Tigers (2-2) have blowout wins over Chiefland and Ocala West Port, but are coming off the loss to Seven Rivers. Stack has confidence the program will soon thrive under Cole. Chris is a great friend of mine, he said. I heard theyre going through some rough spots, but I think theyre going to be good before its all over. Hell figure it out. Kameron Pennington and sophomore Tyler Voland, Crystal River is led by its pitching. We have three starters who can throw it, Stack said. We can flip a coin to pick who we want to throw in a big game, but right now Humphreys has the edge. Thats who we like on our Fridays. Both Humphreys and Pateracki have verbally committed to colleges Pateracki to Thomas University in Georgia; Humphreys to St. Johns River State College, where his brother Tyler is currently hitting .321. Having Tyler out here my freshman year helped me out, said Jordan of the 2012 Chronicle Baseball Player of the Year. He also helps me out when he comes home. The younger Humphreys sees himself more as an everyday player, but Stack thinks he has more potential as a pitcher at the moment. He said Humphreys is going through a maturing process as a hitter, as he cultivates his mental approach in order to take better advantage of his power. Jordan was an easy out when he wasnt thinking in the box, Stack said, and now hes starting to understand things. If you swing through a fastball early in the count trying to hit it 400 feet, then youre going to strike out on the breaking ball. Stack compares Humphreys development at the plate with Paterackis, noting that both benefit from a more simple focus in the batters box. Masons made some big adjustments, Stack said. We got into his head a little bit and hes definitely seeing the ball better right now. Your better athletes tend to go through a funk mentally, and youve got to bring them back to where they are physically. Jordan will be all right. If he gets smarter, he can be a next-level hitter. Crystal River plays host to Dunnellon tonight in a District 5A-6 matchup at 6:30 p.m. or the other. I either hit it good and missed the putt, and then scrap around and make a putt. In his other two events this year, Woods was eight shots behind after the opening round at Torrey Pines and five shots behind at Dubai. He goes into the second round Friday outside the cut line. Henley opened with five birdies and six holes before he cooled off for a 64. Past champion Rory Sabbatini, William McGirt and Jamie Donaldson of Wales were at 65. Zach Johnson was four shots behind and thrilled about his 67. He hit two shots into the water on his way to a quadruple-bogey 8 on his second hold of the tournament. The former Masters champ followed with seven birdies to get back in the game. It was a day where it could have gone the other way quick, Johnson said. McIlroy has been shifting gears since late last year, which he closed out with a win at the Australian Open. He had chances to win in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and he played well in a second-round loss to Harris English last week at Match Play. But this looked like the McIlroy who won two majors, each by eight shots, bobbing along the fairways and swinging with no fear. It helped to make a few putts, such as the 25-foot birdie on No. 2 and a 45-foot birdie putt on No. 11. He had a few par saves that kept him motoring along, such as the upand-down from 40 yards at No. 9, making a putt from just outside 10 feet. Boy Wonder took off from there. He hit into 8 feet for birdie on the 493yard 10th hole, made the long one at No. 11 and then stuffed a gap wedge into 6 feet on No. 12. You cant fake it around here, McIlroy said. You have to play well to shoot good scores, and I was able to do that today. McIlroy put last year behind him, though it was hard to ignore the turnaround. He was the defending champion and No. 1 in the world last year, newly signed to a big Nike contract and struggling to break par. He also was in the early stages of leaving a management company for the second time in two years. It all got to be too much, and as he walked up to the 18th green at PGA National, he shook hands and headed straight to the parking lot. He said then he was not in a good place mentally. Now he is playing well. He is adjusted to his equipment. Hes engaged to tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, who followed him around the golf course. Im in a great place, McIlroy said. I couldnt be happier. The finish didnt hurt. The 24-yearold from Northern Ireland took aim at the flag over the water on the par-3 17th and made a 12-foot birdie putt. He finished with a fairway metal into the front bunker, and a simple shot to 4 feet for birdie on the par-5 closing hole. He still hasnt won a PGA Tour event since the BMW Championship at the end of the 2012 season. He hasnt won on the European Tour since Dubai at the end of that year to capture the money title on both sides of the Atlantic. But with every tournament, hes moving in the right direction. Ive reached a point now where Im very comfortable with everything in my game and my swing, he said. Im seeing shots the way I want to see them. When I do that, I feel like the scores are just a byproduct of all the hard work and making good swings.DivotsPhil Mickelson, playing PGA National for the first time since he was an amateur, had two birdies and a double bogey for a 70. ...

Baker, an Oregon State commit, broke open a close game Thursday with his dynamic, all-around effort and ability to get to the basket. Hamilton County (26-4) had a strong first half and took an 18-10 lead in the first period after Shaquille Williams scored off of a turnover. However, Malone (20-8) closed out the period strong behind a four-point play from Baker and would eventually take a 31-29 halftime lead. While Baker almost single-handedly carried Malone in the first half, his teammates Antwain Johnson and Xavier Gray helped with the heavy lifting in the second half. Johnson finished with 19 points and eight rebounds, while Gray added six points and 14 rebounds.Orlando Christian Prep beats Grandview Prep 53-49LAKELAND Mike Tolbert sank four free throws in the final seconds to help Orlando Christian Prep hold on for a 53-49 victory over Grandview Prep in the Florida Class 2A boys basketball championship game. The Warriors (34-1) stormed out to an early lead Thursday, and it looked like the one of the nations top teams would have an easy road to their fourth state title in six years. However, Grandview Prep (30-5) wasnt going to go away quietly. Grandview trimmed the deficit to 24-22 early in the third period but the Warriors outscored the Pride 16-3 for the rest of the stanza. The Pride grinded their way back into the game but couldnt get ahead. From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Braun homers in return to Brewers Associated PressTAMPA Derek Jeter got a partial standing ovation Thursday before going hitless in two at-bats in the first spring training game of his final season, a New York Yankees 8-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Yankees captain, who turns 40 in June, hit a double-play grounder to second off Pittsburgh right-hander Charlie Morton in the first and grounded out to third during the fourth against lefthander Jeff Locke. Limited to 17 games last season due to leg injuries, Jeter was at shortstop in his first exhibition season appearance. He broke his left ankle in the 2012 AL championship series and did not appear at shortstop last spring training until March 13. Jeter had just 11 at-bats in five games during spring training last year, stayed behind for rehabilitation at New Yorks minor league complex and broke the ankle again. He returned to the Yankees on July 11 but wound up on the disabled list three more times.Tigers 5, Braves 2LAKELAND Detroit newcomers Joba Chamberlain and Joe Nathan each pitched a scoreless inning, helping the Tigers beat the Atlanta Braves 5-2. Chamberlain and Nathan were brought in to solidify a Tigers bullpen that struggled through much of last season. Chamberlain, the right-hander who floundered with the Yankees in 2013, had a strikeout. Nathan, who had 43 saves for Texas last year, struck out two. It was the Tigers debut for both. Rick Porcello started for the Tigers and allowed one run in two innings. He struck out three. Kris Medlin allowed one run in two innings in his spring debut for the Braves. Jason Heyward hit a long homer off of Duane Below in his second at-bat.Blue Jays 7, Phillies 5DUNEDIN Jose Bautista kept up his torrid start to the spring, hitting two doubles and driving in two runs that sent the Toronto Blue Jays over the Philadelphia Phillies 7-5. A day after hitting a long home run against the Phillies in his first at-bat of exhibition play, Bautista had an RBI double in the first inning off Philadelphia ace Cliff Lee. Bautista finished 2 for 2 with a walk. The former twotime major league homer champion missed the final six weeks last year because of a hip injury. Jose Reyes, Brett Lawrie and Melky Cabrera also drove in runs for Toronto. Philadelphias offense was powered by a pair of home runs from bench hopefuls: Darin Ruf hit a two-run shot in the third and John Mayberry Jr. had a solo drive in the sixth. Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey allowed one unearned run in two innings.Brewers 11, Athletics 3PHOENIX Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer in his first at-bat back from suspension, Juan Francisco slugged two homers and the Milwaukee Brewers opened their spring training schedule with an 11-3 win over the Oakland Athletics. Braun hit an 0-1 pitch from starter Tommy Milone high in the air and over the fence near the left-field corner. The 2011 NL MVP was greeted by mainly a hearty chorus of cheers, though there were some jeers before the at-bat. It was Brauns first time in the Brewers lineup since July 21, 2013. He was suspended the next day for violating Major League Baseballs antidrug agreement. Milone was tagged for three runs in two innings, while Jed Lowrie had a tworun double in the first for Oakland.Mariners 7, Padres 1PEORIA, Ariz. Robinson Cano lined a single into center field on the first pitch he saw in a Seattle uniform, part of a two-run first inning that sent the Mariners over the San Diego Padres 7-1 in a Cactus League opener. Cano drew the loudest ovation of the day when he was introduced, then got his hit against Eric Stults. The All-Star left the Yankees in the offseason and signed a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Mariners. Cano played three innings. He walked on four pitches in the third before being lifted for a pinch runner. He had two assists playing at second base. Seattle starter Erasmo Ramirez gave up two hits and struck out one in two innings.Rangers 11, Royals 7SURPRISE, Ariz. Yu Darvish struck out four in two innings of the spring opener for Texas, and Prince Fielder hit a towering solo homer as the Rangers beat the Kansas City Royals 11-7. Darvish, who led the majors with 277 strikeouts and was second in the AL Cy Young Award voting last season, threw 23 of 29 pitches for strikes. The Rangers struggled at times last year to score runs behind Darvish, who was the first pitcher since 1989 to have four 1-0 losses in the same season. They led 4-0 before Darvish threw his last pitch in the Cactus League opener. Fielder, acquired in a trade from Detroit for Ian Kinsler, pulled a homer over the Rangers bullpen, well beyond the 350-foot sign on the right field fence.Diamondbacks (ss) 5, Cubs 2MESA, Ariz. Jeff Samardzija pitched two shutout innings before an overflow crowd in the Chicago Cubs opener at their new stadium, a 5-2 loss to an Arizona Diamondbacks split-squad. The crowd of 14,486 at the new stadium at Riverview Park set a Cactus League record. Samardzija, the Cubs No. 1 starter last season, allowed a walk and a single to start the game, but then got Paul Goldschmidt to fly out. He then struck out Aaron Hill and Eric Chavez to end the first inning. Samardzija allowed a single to Miguel Montero in the second inning. Martin Prado had two singles and a run-scoring double for Arizona. Chavez followed Prados double with a two-run homer in the fifth. Cubs reliever Jose Veras gave up two runs in the sixth.Indians 12, Reds 3GOODYEAR, Ariz. Justin Masterson struck out two in a scoreless inning, catching prospect Jake Lowery hit a grand slam and the Cleveland Indians homered three times overall during a 12-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Elliot Johnson and Tyler Naquin added two-run homers. Carlos Santana made his first start at third base for the Indians, who are trying the catcher at a new position. He had a single in two at-bats but no chances in the field. Zach Cozart had a two-run double for the Reds. Leadoff hitter Billy Hamilton singled in two at-bats. Masterson started and gave up one hit. Reds starter Johnny Cueto gave up a hit and a pair of walks and struck out two in two scoreless innings, a successful debut for his shortened delivery.Dodgers 4, Dbacks (ss) 3GLENDALE, Ariz. Zack Greinke left with a strained right calf after four pitches, Juan Uribe homered and had an RBI single and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat an Arizona Diamondbacks split-squad 4-3. The Dodgers said Greinkes injury was mild. Grienke, the Dodgers No. 2 starter, was making his first spring start after saying he had zero interest making the trip for the Dodgers two regular-season games in Sydney, Australia, March 22-23 against Arizona. But now Greinke said hed like to start a game at Sydney Cricket Ground. Uribe drove in Adrian Gonzalez and connected for a solo shot to left field in the fourth. Diamondbacks starter Randall Delgado made his first spring appearance. He worked 3 2/3 innings, allowing four hits and one run. He struck out two.BASEBALLCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFRIDAY, FEBRUARY28, 2014 B5 000HAKQ 000HHV4 The Dunes Golf Club Play Where the Pros Play UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT 18200 Seville Clubhouse Drive, Weeki Wachee, FL 34614 Call us! 352-596-7888 3 Month Membership Available (Incl.

When the race finally resumed some six hours after the Daytona 500 was brought to a water-logged halt fans that made it to the finish were treated to one of the most intense races in memory. As NASCAR heads West for a two-race swing through Phoenix and Las Vegas, the challenge is to somehow duplicate all that energy from the Daytona 500. There are 36 events left this year, and NASCAR would have very few problems if they are half as exciting as the 500. It was electric, man, winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. said. I dont know what the hell was going on or why it was like that. I wish I knew, because thats what NASCAR wants to bottle and sell. NASCAR spent much of last year working on a new rules package to improve the on-track action at 1.5mile tracks, and the first test wont come until March 9 at Las Vegas. First up is this Sundays race at Phoenix, a one-mile, lowbanked tri-oval in the desert that will give teams a far better indicator than Daytona of how prepared they are for the season. But there will be new eyes watching, partly because of Earnhardts victory and partly because of the sheer competitiveness of Daytona, and theyll be expecting a similar show. I know everybody thinks its the greatest race they ever saw because Dale Jr. won it, Earnhardt said. Taking that out of the equation, I think it really was an exciting race and one of the most exciting Daytona 500s Ive ever been in and one of the most intense races Ive ever been in. It felt so different than any other race Id ever been in. The intensity level was at a max. Races usually have a lull in the middle, dont get going til the end when its time to put money on the line, people start picking up the intensity. We sustained it from the time we started, restarted, all the way to the end. I couldnt believe it. The race had 42 lead changes, and 37 of them came after the rain delay. Drivers ran three-wide when the situation called for single-file or maybe side-by-side racing. They seemed to treat every lap as if it was the last. Theres no one reason to credit for the aggression, but a likely contributor was that no one was sure if it would rain again. Should the sky suddenly open up, the race would have ended and the winner would have been the leader on that lap. NASCAR Chairman Brian France famously declared last September that he expected drivers to give 100 percent on every lap, and the Daytona 500 was evidence that everyone in the field is capable of meeting that demand. I think everyone raced a hard, 500-mile race. I never saw a lull in the action from where I was sitting, said third-place finisher Brad Keselowski. I couldnt be more pleased as both a participant and naturally a fan of the sport with how the 500 went from a competitive standpoint. Now its up to the drivers to deliver a similar product going forward.Tweeting foolSo reluctant to get involved in social media, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is suddenly a tweeting fool. He joked with Michael Waltrip that hed consider joining Twitter if he won the Daytona 500, and followed through with that promise with his first tweet early Monday. Earnhardt has since proven to be an expert at selfies, used photos of his whirlwind winners media tour to show his humor, and has already hosted his first Twitter chat. His account was established by JR Motorsports in 2008 just in case he ever wanted to use Twitter. It gradually added followers, even though the account was dormant, and a Twitter official said this week Earnhardt had 215,106 the day before the Daytona 500. That number had gone up to 216,320 by midnight on Sunday, and had swelled to 416,219 a mere 24 hours later. Now two days after that tweet, Earnhardt has passed the half-million mark and is rapidly closing in on six-time champion Jimmie Johnsons mark of 548,000 followers. Next up on the list? Danica Patrick, who last weekend became the first driver in NASCAR or IndyCar to reach 1 million followers. I just felt like I was going to join Twitter sooner or later and just didnt know when, Earnhardt said. Its becoming such a big part of our lives and such big part of exposure to our partners. Im having fun with it. I thought it would be after an event like winning the championship or the Daytona 500 it felt natural (Sunday night) to go ahead and kick it off. We had 200,000 followers without one tweet. I figured theyd been waiting around for something.Dejected DennyDenny Hamlin could spend a lot of time secondguessing what he could have done differently in the closing laps of the Daytona 500. He won two races during Speedweeks and was going for the trifecta with a victory in the Great American Race. But when he climbed back into his car after the lengthy rain delay, his radio communication was intermittent at best. He told his spotter he could only hear him on the backstretch, and there were times he could hear nothing at all. Since drivers rely on spotters to navigate traffic, Hamlin was hamstrung, particularly in the final twolap sprint to the finish when he made his charge through the field. He wound up second but had trouble finding much joy in the result. Any other year I probably would have been jumping up and down, he said. Me not being able to drive to my ability because I was being conservative, trying to spot for myself, thats not a way to race. But Hamlin, who missed four full races and most of a fifth with a fractured vertebra last season, cant dwell on Daytona. Encore, encore NASCARs current task is duplicating Daytona 500 thriller Photos by Associated PressKyle Larson (42) starts a multi-car collision between Turn 3 and Turn 4 with Austin Dillon (3), Jamie McMurray (1), Casey Mears (13), Marcos Ambrose (9), Kasey Kahne (5), Michael Annett (7) and Brain Vickers (55) during Feb. 23s Daytona 500 race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach. As NASCAR heads west for a two-race swing through Phoenix and Las Vegas, the challenge becomes duplicating the Daytona 500 so that the remaining 36 events are half as exciting. Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Tony Stewart does not consider the Daytona 500 a disaster, despite the engine problems that spoiled his return to racing from a broken right leg. The three-time NASCAR champion wound up 35th in the season-opening race, but he logged enough laps during Speedweeks that he feels good going into the upcoming stretch of seven consecutive races. Stewart missed the final 15 races last year after breaking his leg in two places during a sprint car crash in Iowa. His first time back in a race car was Feb. 14, the day before he competed and was crashed out of the exhibition Sprint Unlimited. He also raced in the Budweiser Duel before the 500, giving him 672 miles of racing in three events. Stewart goes to Sundays race at Phoenix International Raceway a lot more confident than I was before we got to Daytona. I think having all the races that we ran, and actually getting in a crash, while not a great thing, allowed me to sort of test my leg and it felt good, Stewart said in a Stewart-Haas Racing team release. There have been some little things that have felt a little different, but for the most part, its felt like an old pair of tennis shoes that youre just comfortable with. Stewart confident about leg Tony Stewart Dale Earnhardt Jr. won Sundays Daytona 500 race, the second of his career.

By now, many of the front-runners have established themselves, but the nights big honor best picture remains a dramatic question mark. Associated Press film writer Jake Coyle and Jessica Herndon both see Years a Slave eking out the win. But they have plenty to say about not only who will win, but who should win and who should have been a contender. Best Picture nominees: Best Actor nominees: Best Actress nominees: Best Supporting roles: American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Gravity, Her, Nebraska, Philomena, Years a Slave, The Wolf of Wall Street. Will Win: American Hustle feels too light actors in wigs having a ball. And Gravity, for all its galactic splendor, lacks the force of a solid story. So it must be Years a Slave, the candidate with the heft of history. But make no mistake: Theres no certainty in this close contest. Should Win: Years a Slave. Its an unforgettable odyssey, a reckoning of past movie portrayals of slavery and a uniquely unflinching tale of perseverance. Should Have Been a Contender: Few movies capture boyhood like Jeff Nichols soulful Mississippi River coming-of-age tale Mud. COYLE Will Win: Since Gravity stood out as an innovative prodigy advancing visual and 3-D possibilities, itll clean up in the tech categories and will be crowned the nights big victor. Should Win: Years a Slave. With its disturbing subject matter and factual significance, its the years most epic and vital narrative. Should Have Been a Contender: Before Midnight. A deliciously candid look at the dark and deeply romantic evolution of love. HERNDON Christian Bale, American Hustle; Bruce Dern, Nebraska; Leonardo DiCaprio, The Wolf of Wall Street; Chiwetel Ejiofor, Years a Slave; Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club. Amy Adams, American Hustle; Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine; Sandra Bullock, Gravity; Judi Dench, Philomena; Meryl Streep, August: Osage County. Actors: Barkhad Abdi, Captain Phillips; Bradley Cooper, American Hustle; Michael Fassbender, Years a Slave; Jonah Hill, The Wolf of Wall Street; Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club. Actresses: Sally Hawkins, Blue Jasmine; Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle; Lupita Nyongo, Years a Slave; Julia Roberts, August: Osage County; June Squibb, Nebraska. Will Win: McConaughey. He ditched vanity and became the favorite. But DiCaprio may just pull through with the win here. Should Win: DiCaprio may not have abandoned his good looks for this role, but he was aggressive, hilarious and the hedonism made him repulsive. Should Have Been a Contender: Joaquin Phoenix, Her. Carrying most of his scenes solo, he was the heart and soul of Spike Jonzes gentle romance. HERNDON Will Win: Blanchett, as an unraveling upper-class dame, was so pure and direct that her neurosis seemed instinctive. Should Win: Blanchett for her layered dethroned lady. Should Have Been a Contender: Julie Delpy. In Before Midnight she was the French everywoman: nurturing, sensual, feisty and vulnerable. Plus, she had a saucy way with words while arguing topless. HERNDON Actor: Will Win: Leto is the surest bet of the evening. Should Win: Fassbender. Should Have Been a Contender: James Franco, for his jaw-dropping, hysterical extremes in Spring Breakers. Actress: Will Win: Lawrence. This could very well go to the awards season breakout star Nyongo, but few dont love JLaw, who would accomplish the rare feat of back-to-back years of Oscar wins. Should Win: Squibb. Nebraska needs her bite. Should Have Been a Contender: Carey Mulligan, for her foul-mouthed fury in Inside Llewyn Davis. COYLE Photos by The Associated Press

March a breakout month for music in Citrus Jim DavisPLAY IT BY EAR Citizen Kane personal script up for sale at Sothebys JILLLAWLESS Associated PressLONDON Orson Welles personal draft script for Citizen Kane is up for sale from the collection of an American almost as wealthy as the movies monstrous newspaper mogul, though considerably more private. Sothebys auction house said Thursday it is offering the typed script, covered in the directors amendments and marked Mr. Welles working copy on the front page. The script, which has an estimated price of $25,000 to $33,000 is part of a sale of more than a thousand items owned by the late Stanley Seeger, an affluent collector of everything from old masters and contemporary art to historical oddities. Other lots to be offered March 5 and 6 in London include eight 100-millionyear-old dinosaur eggs, an armchair once owned by Winston Churchill and gangster Al Capones silver-plated cocktail shaker, a gift from his underlings engraved To a Regular Guy, from the Boys. Citizen Kane, released in 1941, has frequently been voted one of the best films ever made. It depicts the rise and fall of an ambitious tycoon modeled on the real figure of U.S. publisher William Randolph Hearst. The script being sold one of only two known surviving copies belonging to Welles bears the movies earlier title, American. It was changed, in part, to distance the fictional Charles Foster Kane from Hearst. Sothebys director David Macdonald, who put together the sale, said Thursday that Seeger often watched the movie, following along with script in hand. Seeger, who died in 2011 at the age of 81, lived quietly even reclusively but on a grand scale. He and his partner Christopher Cone had 11 properties, including the Tudor manor house Sutton Place in southern England, once owned by J. Paul Getty. All were filled with art and artifacts, as was Seegers yacht which boasted a Cezanne on its walls. The sale includes items from 50 countries, from Adm. Horatio Nelsons silver teapot to a claret jug from the Titanic and dinnerware by graffiti artist Keith Haring. In his lifetime, Seeger sold major works including 88 Picassos that raised $32 million in 1993. Macdonald said hed get rid of collections when he considered them complete, or when works became too famous. Once, when a visiting paramedic recognized a Francis Bacon triptych hanging on a wall, Seeger decided it had to go. Macdonald said Seeger collected for pleasure and for fun Having Nelsons teapot but using it for afternoon tea. If youre having your friends over for Bloody Marys, you have to use Al Capones cocktail shaker. Proceeds from the sale will go to the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University, of which he was benefactor.

ONTHESCENECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFRIDAY, FEBRUARY28, 2014 C3 Associated PressLOS ANGELES Was it Lee Daniels The Butler, the folk rock bio pic Inside Llewyn Davis, or Woody Allens Blue Jasmine? Well never know which film might have been the 10th bestpicture nominee at this years Oscars. Ahead of Hollywoods biggest night on Sunday, moviegoers may wonder why there have been only nine nominees for best picture the past three years even though the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences rules allow for up to 10. Its all part of a magic, complicated formula intended to choose the years best films, introduce an element of surprise, and minimize voters incentive to vote strategically, according to Rick Rosas, a PricewaterhouseCoopers partner who supervises the count. It allows for fewer nominees in years when support is weak for certain films. Movies that make the cut need a hardcore group of supporters as well as broad acceptance by voters who would rank it their secondor third-best choice of the year. We want voters to be able to fully vote their conscience, Rosas says, not to worry, My vote wont matter for a particular film. Heres how the best-picture nomination process works. But we must also issue a spoiler alert: Stop reading now if you would rather not spoil the fun of the Oscars by trying to figure out one of the most complicated formulas devised by man. Still with us? Good luck. The Academys 6,000 members are sent ballots and asked to rank their five favorite films of the year. Lets say Voter Jane really loved Years a Slave but also thought American Hustle, Philomena, Gravity, and Nebraska deserved runner-up status. Shed mark her ballot ranking Years as No. 1, American Hustle No. 2 and so on. Heres where the ballot counters come in. All the films are ranked according to how many first-place votes they received. Any that get over 9.1 percent of the first-place votes are automatically nominated. That ensures that no more than 10 nominees automatically make the cut. If 10 make it, then the counting is done. If there are fewer than 10, the ballot counters look for socalled surplus votes. Any film that receives votes at least 10 percent above the 9.1-percent automatic nomination threshold will have the surplus votes re-allocated according to the voters second choice or third choice if the second choice is already nominated. Each first-place vote for that popular film is given a lesser weight so the film barely crosses the threshold, and that ballots second-place votes help another film, to a lesser degree. So if Years a Slave received 10 percent of the votes, all of its first-place votes are counted with a weight of roughly 0.9 votes, and all of the second-place votes on the same ballot are redistributed to those films (like American Hustle) with a weight of roughly 0.1 votes. Another check is done to see if any films cross the 9.1 percent threshold. Next, films with less than 1 percent of the first-place votes are eliminated and those ballots are reallocated according to the voters second choice or third choice if the second is already nominated. Finally, all films with more than 5 percent of the votes are automatically nominated. If there are between five and 10, the counting is done. If there are more than 10, the films with the fewest votes are eliminated and their nextchoice votes are redistributed until only 10 remain. If there are less than five, the counters start over and eliminate from the least vote-getters up, while redistributing voters next-choice votes until only five remain. So those secondand thirdplace choices really matter, even if a voters first-place selection is extremely popular. Still with us? The actual balloting for best picture completed this past Tuesday is far less complicated: All voters are again asked to rank the nominees in order of preference this year, that means from 1 to 9. If any film gets 50 percent of the first-place votes plus one, it wins. If not, the films with the fewest first-place are eliminated and those ballots are redistributed according to the voters second-, thirdand fourth-place choices accordingly. Either way, a film needs a lot of first-place votes from passionate backers, and a healthy standing as a secondand thirdplace pick in order to win. But as you can see, it really is an honor just to be nominated. Oscars: How we ended up with 9 best-picture nods?

The prospect of nearly two hours on an airliner, without the complimentary peanuts, is not quite the sensory experience we typically seek in the movies. After federal air marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) morosely guzzles some whiskey in his car outside JFK Airport, he boards the plane headed for Heathrow that hes to protect, that will be the setting from here on out. If youre now hitting the call flight attendant button for help, youll be pleased with the results. Things pick up when down the aisle strolls stewardesses Michelle Dockery and Lupita Nyongo. The plane populates with our cast: Julianne Moore (Marks chatty seatmate), a school teacher (Scoot McNairy), a tough New Yorker (Corey Stroll) and a Muslim doctor (Omar Metwally). Neeson begins getting mysterious text messages from a hijacker on board a snake on the plane, if you will who says someone will die every 20 minutes until $150 million is sent to an off-shore account. The cabin pressure steadily rises. It could be anyone on the plane, a clever little conceit reflective of todays air travel: Everyone is treated like a suspect. In the films best image, Marks has all the passengers hold their hands up. But, as with so many highconcept films, it takes an awful lot of implausibility to keep the story airborne. The manner of the deaths turns suspicion to Marks himself, and even his boss (via phone) believes hes the terrorist. Most incredulously, the plot is propelled by the live coverage of the incident by NY1, that cute little local New York cable channel. Moore breathes life into the claustrophobia, as does Dockery both helpful aids to Marks. Nyongo, the young Oscar-nominated actress of Years a Slave, has barely a line, but sports a cool flattop. But the question is as was with the similarly Europeanbacked, one-word titled thrillers Taken, Taken 2 and Unknown what to make of this unlikely action hero turn for Neeson at 61? Non-Stop is directed by the Spanish-born filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, who also helmed Unknown. Now theyre churning them out. The movies, Non-Stop included, are simple, mostly serviceable genre flicks that are smart enough to dispense with exposition but not witty enough to put three acts together. Neesons presence wounded, intelligent, honorable is much sturdier than these films, which he elevates with ease. Its not an issue of him lowering himself to them, but of these films not raising themselves to Neeson. On Minutes recently, Neeson was himself bemused and rather sheepish about this career turn to movies he acknowledged were straight-tovideo stuff. But his suggestion that he came to Taken and the rest because it allowed him to busy himself after the death of his wife, Natasha Richardson, gives these movies a melancholy poetry: The weary Neeson, kicking butt to keep the demons at bay. Liam Neeson keeps Non-Stop from crashing Associated PressLiam Neeson stars in the new action film Non-Stop. Non-Stop, a Universal Pictures release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for intense sequences of action and violence, some language, sensuality and drug references.

C8FRIDAY, FEBRUARY28, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, for an episode of Northern Exposure, wrote, Life is spontaneous and it is unpredictable; it is magical. Bridge is rarely spontaneous, because it requires thought. But it can occasionally be unpredictable and magical as in this deal. South is in three spades. The contract looks unbeatable. Surely the defenders can take only three clubs and one diamond. Cant declarer get into the dummy in diamonds, take the spade finesse, and collect seven spades and two diamonds (or one diamond and one heart)? Well, strange as it may seem, the defenders can defeat the contract but how? South had a textbook vulnerable threespade opening: a good seven-card suit and 6-10 high-card points. After that, no one had sufficient values to argue. West leads the club king. East overtakes with his ace and returns the club two. This tells West that East started with only two clubs. West wins the second trick with his eight, then cashes the club queen. What should East discard? East must pitch a diamond. Now West leads a fourth club and East throws another diamond. South cannot ruff on the board, because then he would be unable to take the spade finesse. So South ruffs in his hand and plays a diamond to try to get into the dummy for the trump finesse. But West wins with his ace and leads another club, on which East jettisons his last diamond. Declarer trumps and plays a diamond, but East ruffs the trick to defeat the contract. Isnt that magical?

He has an office job that he can accomplish remotely, and by working at home, it saves him a 30-minute commute each way. Those are all great arguments. However, I dont want him working from home. I have to admit that the big reason is simply because I want him to get out of the house more. He rarely leaves unless its with the kids and me. Does that make me a terrible wife? I work a parttime job, also with a 30-minute commute, that allows me to be home in time for the kids school bus. In addition, I take the occasional phone meeting from home, but of course, now I have to take those calls in the bedroom, as my husband is occupying the home office. Ive tried to compromise and suggested he work from home two days a week, but he wants at least four. I feel like we are on top of each other all the time and that he is becoming more of a hermit. This has turned into a major argument. Please Help Dear Please: Its true that for some people, working from home is detrimental. You never get out of your pajamas, and so you avoid other people and rarely leave the house. But that argument may not fly with your husband, who can respond that its his personal choice. The better argument is that you are on top of each other, which leads to annoyance and then resentment and can damage your relationship. Your husband is not going to give up the opportunity to work from home, and so its best if you both reach some accommodation. How about three days a week? Would he vacate the home office when you need it for business phone calls? Is there another space in the house that could be set aside as your personal office? Would you work longer hours if he met the school bus and took care of the kids? Ask your husband to cooperate with you to find a solution you both can live with. Dear Annie: Can you tell me what is the proper etiquette for graduation announcements? A relative is graduating from a military academy and wants to put a note in her announcement as to where she is registered for gifts. Is this appropriate? Aunt Dear Aunt: No. The only time registry information should appear is with baby and wedding shower invitations, where gifts are expected. Otherwise, it is wrong to send out notices inferring that the recipient is obligated for a gift. It would be better if the graduate lets a close friend and/or family member know her preferences and they can transmit that information to anyone who inquires. Dear Annie: I have followed the many outraged responses regarding adult children who have cut elderly parents out of their lives, so let me give another view. My mother is 86 and possessed of her faculties. She can live alone and unassisted. Both of my sisters cut her out of their lives years ago. Why? Because Mom has a cruel mouth and is bigoted, gratuitously insulting, highly opinionated and very vocal about what she thinks of you and everyone else. Mom complained that she has been shunned because of her age, and I told her it is because she is unpleasant and impossible, and that she should get counseling. She responded with a well-chosen two-word obscenity. So Im done. I have tried with great patience to keep Mom in my life, but she is so difficult that I, too, have finally thrown in the towel. I dont need the stress that she creates. Please let your readers know that the behavior of some adult children may be abundantly justified.

Kehr, a paramedic, and Carson, an emergency medical technician, had just come back from a non-emergency medical transport to UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville. The detectives arrested them on charges of operating a personal-use meth lab out of the Inverness home they shared with Kehrs girlfriend. According to reports, Kehr had a meth pipe and about 0.3 grams of methamphetamine in his pocket. He also later admitted to smoking meth while at work, reports state. Both Kehr and Carson were fired on the spot, Nature Coast EMS Executive Director Mike Hall said. We have absolute zero tolerance for this, Hall said. We do not tolerate it in any way. According to reports, Kehr, Carson and Stefanie Lynn Smith had all the chemicals needed to manufacture methamphetamine, several grams of finished product and numerous pieces of paraphernalia at their home on Fernpark Terrace. Kehr and Smith are the parents of two children, both under age 10, who were at school when their mother was Stefanie SmithKehrs girlfriend was also arrested, and their two children taken by DCF.

Heather CarsonEMT arrested, charged with intent to manufacture a controlled substance.Kitchen fire damages C.R. homeA home near Crystal River was partially damaged by fire Wednesday. According to a report by Citrus County Sheriffs Office Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Tom Bosley, fire crews were dispatched to a possible structure fire at 2598 N. Crede Ave. in the afternoon. When firefighters arrived, they noticed black smoke coming from the home. According to the report, the fire was quickly brought under control. The blaze reportedly originated in the kitchen area. The homeowner told investigators it was from a cooking accident. Officials have ruled out foul play. Damage to the structure is estimated at 10 percent, with 25 percent of that believed to have been caused by smoke. State has $1B budget surplusTALLAHASSEE Florida legislators this year arent worrying about budget cuts or how to balance the state budget. Instead, the Republican-controlled Legislature will spend the next nine weeks trying to figure out how to spend an expected budget surplus of more than $1 billion. Gov. Rick Scott wants legislators to use the surplus to pay for tax and fee cuts of nearly $600 million, including a roll back in auto registration fees. Legislative leaders are largely in agreement with the governor. Still, splits are emerging over some of Scotts proposals, such as his push to increase spending on child protection investigators. From staff and wire reports MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleBrittany Arnett becomes emotional Thursday afternoon while listening to her mother Jessica Anderson, left, address Circuit Court Judge Richard Ric Howard during a change-of-plea proceeding. Arnett initially claimed innocence in the death of her infant, but Thursday changed her plea to guilty of third-degree murder. She had been charged with second-degree murder. She will serve 12 years in prison for the killing. Mom gets 12 years for killing baby Woman pleads to third-degree murder chargeA.B. SIDIBE Staff writerAn Inverness mother pleaded guilty Thursday to killing her infant boy during a fit of frustration early last year. In the plea deal, Brittany Nichole Arnett, 21, was sentenced to 12 years each on a count of thirddegree murder and child negligence. The sentences are to run concurrently. Arnett was initially charged with second-degree murder. Arnett was reportedly upset that her boyfriend had left her at home with the nearly 6-month-old baby. According to prosecutor Pete Magrino, the baby died from blunt force, specifically around the C1 and C2 cervical vertebrae on the babys spine. Magrino told Circuit Judge Richard Ric Howard the baby also had swelling of the brain. Arnett sat mostly quiet when her attorneys, assistant public defenders Ed Spaight and Trish Jenkins, entered her pleas for her. However, after Arnett was sentenced by Howard, her mother Jessica Anderson emotionally A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerA man with a history of sexual assault on children was arrested again this time for allegedly sodomizing a 6-year-old girl. Antonio Jamarcus Hosley, 22, of Beverly Hills, was arrested Wednesday and is facing one count of sexual battery or injuring the sexual organs of a child less than 12 years old. No bond was allowed. The alleged victim and her 7-year-old sibling were visiting Hosleys house when the assault reportedly occurred. According to Hosleys arrest affidavit, the girls had gone to bed for the night and were asleep on an air mattress in Hosleys room when Hosley picked up the 6-year-old and brought her to his bed. Hosley reportedly made the child perform inappropriate acts on him and then proceeded to sodomize her. The girl told investigators Hosley sodomized her again in the morning. The girls sister told investigators Hosley never touched her, but said she saw Hosley remove her sister from the air mattress and soon after heard her sister moaning in pain. The 7-year-old said she pretended to be asleep during the incident. Hosleys mother told investigators she also heard one of the girls crying Man accused of sexually assaulting 6-year-old girl PATFAHERTY Staff writerIts a small fruit with a big influence on Floral City. For one weekend every year, fresh strawberries harvested at Ferris Groves take center stage at one of Citrus Countys biggest events. The Floral City Strawberry Festival, now in its 27th year, is a significant fundraiser for the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce and various other local nonprofit organizations. With a focus on family fun, it is also a showcase for arts and crafts, local businesses and entertainment. Of course, there are strawberries for sale, along with strawberry shortcake and other sweet treats. The locally grown fruit puts a spotlight on county agriculture while highlighting the businesses, services and other attractions of the unique small community. And while the iconic Ferris Groves is historically linked to oranges, this time of year, the Ferris berry gets the attention. But the festival outgrew Floral City years ago, and is now held at the countys sprawling Floral Park. However, as a nod to its community roots, it kicks off in downtown Floral City in whats billed as a pre-event party called Berries, Brew and BBQ. According to organizers, its an opportunity for residents and visitors to get acquainted or reacquainted with what Floral City has to offer. It showcases Floral City, said Berries, brew, barbecue kick off strawberry festival Antonio Hosleybeing held without bond. MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle Red, ripe berries are center stage this weekend.

addressed the court, insisting her daughter was not the monster she is being portrayed as. Anderson blamed her daughters problems on hanging around the wrong people and singled out Arnetts ex-boyfriend for the negative influence. According to Arnetts arrest report, around noon on Jan. 27, 2013, she reportedly placed the baby in his swing and in the subsequent two hours slammed the infants face 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. Magrino told the court Thursday the baby was basically dead on arrival. Magrino told the court the medical examiners office found extensive bruising and multiple broken ribs on the baby. The autopsy also revealed, among other injuries, brain hemorrhaging, a separated spine, broken ribs and lacerations inside the babys mouth. Arnett told hospital staff she didnt know how the baby got hurt, but eventually confessed to authorities. Arnett also will get credit for time served with the deal. She has been in custody since her arrest in 2013 and has since given birth to another child. That child resides with Arnetts mother.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

Its our opportunity to get people into town and show them whats here. Frank Peters, who serves on the Tourist Development Council and chairs the Floral City Heritage Council, explained the kickoff started because so many people were going by Floral City to get to the festival. We really needed something to help bring visitors to the business community, and the chamber agreed to this, he said. The event works, he said, bringing people into Floral City. We do get a lot of exposure from it, said Shannon Burns, president of the Floral City Merchants Association. She sees it as benefitting both Floral City and the Strawberry Festival. People in the county take pride in the Floral City strawberry, she said. We want them to come by and see what we have to offer. Burns, whose mother Martha was instrumental in getting the Strawberry Festival started, thinks the Friday evening kickoff will continue to evolve. We really hope its going to grow, she said. Next year we plan to invite festival vendors to participate. She said some Floral City businesses take advantage of the opportunity and remain open Friday evening. The economic impact of these festivals is huge for the community, said Josh Wooten, Chamber of Commerce president and chief executive officer. We fill up hotel rooms and we have a lot of traffic that comes in. Wooten said that unlike the Manatee Festival, the Strawberry Festival is in a more remote part of the county. To mitigate that, for the past couple of years the chamber has partnered with the Floral City Merchants Association to integrate the businesses of Floral City into the festival. We do that by having the Friday night kickoff, right there on town square, where the library is on Orange Avenue, Wooten said. We also have buses running from downtown Floral City to the festival in the hopes they will come back and shop in Floral City. We want to showcase that beautiful little town. The festival averages about 15,000 attendees, with Berries, Brew and BBQ luring 700 to 1,000. Berries, Brew and BBQ is free to the public. Admission to the festival Saturday and Sunday is $3.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352-564-2924 or pfaherty@chronicleonline.com.

Department of Children and Families took custody of the children. All of the meth was being manufactured for their own use and not for sale, sheriffs spokeswoman Lindsay Blair said. Hall said he hadnt realized Kehr admitted to using meth at work. We werent aware that was going on, he said. Both Kehr and Carson began working at Nature Coast EMS about the same time Kehr in June 2013 and Carson two months later. Kehr, 39, had a paramedic background in the Tampa Bay area and Pennsylvania. For Carson, 20, this was her first job in the field, having gone through the Nature Coasts EMT school, Hall said. Nature Coast EMS has 105 workers, including 80 in the field, spokeswoman Katie Lucas said. All new hires are given a drug screening and undergo a criminal background check. Once hired, employees receive drug tests only with cause, Hall said. He said he didnt know if that policy would change with the arrests of Kehr and Carson. Were going to evaluate all our policies, he said. Well see what we can do to make sure this never happens again. All three were charged with possession of chemicals with intent to manufacture a controlled substance and with manufacturing methamphetamine in the presence of children, who were home during the manufacturing at various times, reports state. Kehr and Smith, 28, were also charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia. Carsons bond was set at $250,000. Bond for Kehr and Smith was set at $255,500. Hall said the arrests have had an unsettling effect at Nature Coast EMS. Were shocked, he said. Were really dedicated to serving our community. A couple of bad folks have put a tarnish on our image and were not pleased with that at all.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.

Tri-County RC Club members take their (air)craft seriouslyAUGIESALZER For the Riverland NewsFog hangs heavy over the field after the Saturday morning meeting. Members slowly take their equipment out of the 50-plus vehicles in the parking lot, waiting for the weather to clear. As the haze burns off, the radio-controlled plane enthusiasts are ready and eager to begin their day of fun. Located in Dunnellon off County Road 484, the Tri-County RC Club currently has 124 members from Marion, Citrus and Levy counties. The flying club began in Inverness, but changed its name to include all three counties when it moved to Dunnellon approximately eight years ago. The club leases 77 acres from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Greenways and Trails, and the land can be used only for recreational purposes. The rented land, used by the Tri-County RC Club for meetings and fly-ins, is called the Rainbow RC Airpark. The field is an important part of the growing hobby of radiocontrolled flying, according to club president Walt Graves. We do our best to keep the field looking nice, he said. We need a big field like this because we have planes with a 1-foot to 6-foot wingspan, or larger, flying out here. This type of hobby is so broad that there is something for everyone. For safetys sake, only members of the Tri-County RC Club are allowed to use the field. They also are required to join the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), an organization dedicated to furthering the growth of model aviation. Safety is our biggest concern, and for insurance purposes everyone has to be a member of AMA, Graves said. They basically are our governing body, and we have our own rules and by-laws that we all have to follow. Safety is our top priority. One condition of membership is that newbies must meet with an instructor to review the field rules and for a flight check before they are allowed on the field. They also have a training program to teach student pilots how to take off, land and safely perform certain flying maneuvers with their planes. The club instructor stays with the student, teaching them safety and the different techniques of flying, until they are qualified to fly solo. Emily Newsom, a student at Dunnellon Middle School, is new to the club and has just recently become a student of model aviation. Im having a lot of fun learning to fly, Emily said. I try to explain to the kids at school what I do. I fly model airplanes. Her dad, Doug Newsom, was involved in the hobby for many years, but stopped seven years ago and gave his many planes to a friend. Circumstances have changed, and Doug has returned to the sport with all his old planes. I began again in January with my daughter, Newsom said. She is doing really well. Im rusty coming back, but I still enjoy it. There are six teachers in the club; Emilys is head instructor Norman Albert. At the morning meeting, Albert had just received the Crash of the Month award. No matter how careful we are crashes still happen, Albert said. The award is a reminder for everyone to be careful. The variety of planes used by members ranges from small electrics to large gas-powered craft. The fuel used in the planes is a combination of methanol, nitro and an oil blend. The club also has a variety of novelty aircraft. One example of the unusual is owned by Chris Wieland, a member for 14 years: It looks just like a lawnmower. The aircraft is 30 inches wide and 4 feet long. Nothing flies like a Toro, Wieland joked. You can fly a piece of plywood if you put enough power on it. Kevin Lee has a Blade Quadcopter with an electric battery, and Peter Goldings electric powered plane looks like a large eagle. Its the first flight for the bird, said the snowbird from London, England, with six years of flying experience. Well see how she does. But Graves emphasized that large, elaborate or even expensive planes are necessary to enjoy model aviation. You dont have to spend a ton of money, Graves said. Plans (to build a plane) are free off the Internet and they are easy to build. Twelve-year-old Xavier Delacruz has been using his simply made planes for about a year. He and his dad, Luis, have about seven planes that they made from scratch. We are here as often as we can, usually every other weekend, the elder Delacruz said. Xavier has a lot of fun and hes really getting good.

The Tampa Bay Times reported that Paradise Lakes Resort resident Sharon Fowler has a black Labrador named Laura who weighs well over the communitys threshold. Fowler said the dog is a service animal. Fowler said the association has told her to only walk the dog in specific areas and that the dog must move out of the way of pedestrians. Also, shes been told her dog is out of control. Fowler filed a civil rights lawsuit in Pasco court. The suit seeks monetary damages for mental anguish and injunctive relief.LakelandAuthorities report rare death from spider biteCentral Florida authorities are reporting a rare death from a spider bite. Polk County Medical Examiner Stephen Nelson told The Ledger that Ronald Reese of Lakeland died Feb. 16 from complications of a spider bite. Reeses father said the 62-year-old had been bitten in August by a brown recluse spider. H.K. William Reese said he required lengthy hospital stays and numerous procedures for six months after the bite. Few statistics on deaths attributed to spider bites are available. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, only two people died from spider bites between 2001 and 2005. Both were believed to be caused by brown recluse spiders. The brown recluse spider is one of just a handful of spiders that are dangerous to humans.St. PetersburgGun-sniffing dogs will patrol Tampa Bay schoolsA Tampa Bay-area school district has employed gun-sniffing dogs to alert authorities to firearms in lockers or classrooms. Beginning next week, the Labrador retrievers Macy and Roo will start making the rounds at Pinellas County Schools. The dogs can sniff-out shell casings and guns, even ones that havent been fired in years. They also can tell the difference between real firearms and toys or BB guns. The dogs will survey each school at least twice during the academic year in addition to responding to rumors and threats. They also will be used at events such as high school football games. Superintendent Michael Grego said the dogs are a really proactive and visual way to show that theres no reason why there should be one gun on campus.

SIDIBE Staff writerAn Inverness man is in custody facing lewd and lascivious molestation charges for allegedly fondling the breasts of a 10-year-old girl on several occasions. Jeffery Allen Schwartz, 51, was arrested Tuesday. No bond was allowed. The girls mother reportedly became aware of Schwartzs inappropriate behavior last summer and asked him to stop, but continued to let the child spend time with Schwartz. The child would later tell police Schwartz resumed inappropriately touching her shortly thereafter. On at least one occasion, another minor allegedly witnessed Schwartz fondling the victim. That minor then reportedly told the victims mother about the incident. The mother then called the sheriffs office, which opened an investigation. The victim said Schwartz would initiate the inappropriate touching via a game that entailed having the victim remove her clothes while Schwartz grabbed her breasts and twisted them. The victim told investigators Schwartzs game caused her pain. When Schwartz was confronted, he reportedly denied the allegations. He was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352-564-2925 or asidibe@chronicleonline.com.

Todays Highlight in History: On Feb. 28, 2013, Benedict XVI became the first pope in 600 years to resign, ending an eight-year pontificate shaped by struggles to move the Catholic Church past sex abuse scandals and to reawaken Christianity in an indifferent world. (Benedict was succeeded the following month by Pope Francis.) On this date: In 1953, scientists James D. Watson and Francis H.C. Crick announced they had discovered the double-helix structure of DNA. In 1993, a gun battle erupted at a religious compound near Waco, Texas, when Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents tried to arrest Branch Davidian leader David Koresh on weapons charges; four agents and six Davidians were killed as a 51-day standoff began. Ten years ago: Iraqs U.S.picked leaders failed to meet a deadline for adopting an interim constitution. Five years ago: Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, free-agent NFL defensive lineman Corey Smith and former South Florida player William Bleakley died when their boat overturned in rough seas off the coast of Florida. One year ago: In Seffner, Fla., a sinkhole opened up under a mans bedroom and swallowed him up without a trace; Jeff Bush is presumed dead. Todays Birthdays: Architect Frank Gehry is 85. Hall of Fame auto racer Mario Andretti is 74. Actress Bernadette Peters is 66. Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman is 61. Comedian Gilbert Gottfried is 59.

In an interview with People magazine, Deen quoted Sam as saying he wants to be known as a football player and not a gay football player. The Missouri AllAmerican Sam recently came out as gay. Deen told the magazine she understands his viewpoint and, in her case, worries the words embattled or disgraced always will be attached to her name.

The 67-year-old Deen called it amazing that others face controversies such as hers and come out seemingly unaffected.Schweitzer joins cable news channel as contributorBILLINGS, Mont. Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer said Thursday that hes joined cable news channel MSNBC as a contributor. The Democrats first appearance in his new role came Wednesday during an appearance on The Ed Show in which he discussed a segment on the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. Schweitzer is an outspoken proponent of the project to ship oil from Canada to Texas Gulf Coast refineries, putting him at odds with many Democrats. Hes appeared regularly on various news programs since leaving office in January 2013. In those and other public appearances, hes strived to portray himself as a common sense politician with little regard for party lines a stance he said Thursday that he intends to carry over into his new role. Rumored as a presidential hopeful, Schweitzer has visited the key Democratic caucus state of Iowa but has made no formal announcement about whether he might run in 2016. He told The Associated Press that a run is something I might consider in the future.Clay Aiken officially joins North Carolina congressional raceRALEIGH, N.C. Former American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken officially filed Thursday to run for Congress in North Carolina, saying that he wants to help end the gridlock in Washington and that no single political party has all the answers. The performer, a Democrat, turned in his paperwork at the State Board of Elections to seek the 2nd District seat currently held by Republican Renee Ellmers. Aiken, who lives in the Raleigh-Durham area, announced his bid three weeks ago and must first try to win the Democratic primary in less than 10 weeks. The 2nd District, which covers all or parts of nine counties west and southwest of his native Raleigh, is considered Republican-leaning. But Aiken said the districts voters want to choose the candidate who believes were not going to have success just based on one party or the other that we all have to work together. They are enthusiastic about seeing change, he added later. Aiken, who finished second to Ruben Studdard in TVs 2003 Idol competition, became a backhome sensation a decade ago. Aiken said lowering unemployment and veterans issues are among his top priorities. He said he thinks some changes can be made to President Barack Obamas health care overhaul law but doesnt want to repeal it.

Chronicle staffIts not often that an elephant comes to Homosassa, but Nosy, a 21-year-old African elephant, will be at Howards Flea Market from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. At 6 months old, Nosy was rescued after her entire herd in Zimbabwe was slaughtered for their ivory. Her rescuer sold her to a circus, which is currently based in central Florida. When not performing during the winter months, Nosy travels throughout Florida meeting and greeting kids of all ages. Howards Flea Market owner Alice Cushman invites the community to come and meet Nosy and take a ride on her. Pony rides will also be offered. Theres a great backstory here, Cushman said. The owner of the circus, his father had a circus in Hungary that was nationalized by the Communist Party. His father escaped and came to this country, and now the son has the circus. Howards Flea Market is at 6373 S. Suncoast Blvd., Homosassa. For information, call 352-628-3532. Associated PressAPALACHICOLA Apalachicola Bay and Floridas oyster industry are going to get some financial assistance from the federal government. State and federal elected officials said Wednesday that the U.S. Department of Commerce has approved $6.3 million in disaster assistance funding. Gov. Rick Scott said the money can be used to help the restoration of Apalachicola Bay and assist affected oystermen. Last year, federal officials declared a fishery disaster for oystermen in the Gulf Coast. The collapse of the oyster industry followed a drought that reduced freshwater into the bay. The states agriculture agency found the 2012 oyster harvest to be the lowest in two decades, dropping from 430 to 64 oysters per square meter. The historically low harvest affected an estimated 2,500 bay jobs. Before production collapsed, the bay supplied 90 percent of the states oysters and 10 percent across the country. State officials have also blamed the lack of freshwater due to increased consumption in Georgia. Oysters need a mix of both fresh and salt water. Florida last fall filed a lawsuit against Georgia with the U.S. Supreme Court over water consumption. The disaster assistance will go to hiring fishermen to lay oyster shells in the bay, which give oyster larvae someplace to attach and develop, said Shannon Hartsfield, president of the Franklin County Seafood Workers Association. The bay also has been helped by more rainfall, he said. Itll never get back to where it was, but it could get back close, and if we manage it right, it could sustain a good living for our locals, Hartsfield toldThe News Herald. The bay also received $4.2 million in federal money in November for restoration research. That funding comes from BP fines levied after the 2010 oil spill. Couple reunited with unique ring dropped in GulfVENICE A unique wedding ring lost in the Gulf of Mexico has been found by a southwest Florida treasure hunter. Sarah Whitten-Grigsby and Les Grigsby had matching titanium wedding rings with colored dots around the bands. Les Grigsbys ring slipped from his hand into the waters off Venice in June. For months, the couple would describe the ring to anyone they saw at the beach with a metal detector. Mark DesErmia of Venice found the ring in January about 50 feet from shore and tracked down the couple around Valentines Day.Another Cuban Five spy released from US prisonMIAMI A second member of the Cuban Five spy ring was released Thursday from a U.S. prison after spending more than 15 years behind bars. Fifty-year-old Fernando Gonzalez known to U.S. authorities by his alias, Ruben Campa completed his sentence at 4 a.m. local time a prison in Safford, Ariz., Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke said. Gonzalez was turned over immediately to immigration officials. He will be deported to Cuba as soon as possible, said Michelle Alvarez, spokeswoman for the Miami U.S. Attorneys Office. The five men were convicted in 2001 in Miami on charges including conspiracy and failure to register as foreign agents in the U.S. Wayne Evans, 78BEVERLY HILLSWayne Evans, 78, of Beverly Hills, Fla., passed away Feb. 24, 2014, at Hospice of Citrus and the Nature Coast Care Center in Inverness.

Quarterly losses narrowed as the department store trimmed expenses and reduced inventory, though revenue fell as it closed stores. The rendering, cooking oil and bakery waste recycling technology company, fell short of expectations for profit and revenue. The U.S. auto safety watchdog is investigating whether the automaker acted quickly enough in a recall linked to 13 deaths. Same-store sales rose for the first time in two years, lessening fears about the rate at which the retailer burns through cash. The electronics retailer returned to a profit and topped Wall Street expectations as it cut costs to offset declining sales. It took a few days, but the S&P 500 rose to a record high Thursday. The index had flirted with its all-time closing high in each of prior three days, only to fade in the afternoon. A jump for telecommunications stocks on Thursday helped break the streak. 20 30 40 $50 DF J Best BuyBBY Close: $25.57 -0.25 or -1.0% $15.75$44.66 Vol.: Mkt.

The Standard & Poors 500 index had moved above its previous all-time high on numerous occasions this week, only to fade in afternoon trading. On Thursday, the index stayed higher after getting a boost from strong earnings reported by a number of U.S. companies including the drugmaker Mylan and several retailers. The stock market has staged an impressive turnaround in February, after slumping at the start of the year on concerns about the prospects for growth in China and worries about the health of the U.S. economy. Growth in corporate earnings and optimism that the Federal Reserve will keep supporting the economy have helped support demand for stocks. In the last few days weve flirted with it, and now weve got the new high, said Ryan Detrick, a senior technical strategist at Schaeffers Investment Research. The timing of the new record, just before the start of spring, could help the market extend its gains, Detrick said. March has been the third-strongest month over the last 30 years, with an average gain of 1.4 percent, according to the Stock Traders Almanac. It bodes well for equities for the next couple of months, at least, said Detrick. The S&P 500 rose 9.13 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,854.29. Its previous record high close was 1,848.38, set on Jan. 15. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 74.24, or 0.5, percent, to 16,272.65. The Dow is still about 1.8 percent below its record close of 16,576.66. The Nasdaq composite climbed 26.87 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,318.93. The Nasdaq is also short of its record close of 5,048.62 set in March 2000. On Thursday, generic drugmaker Mylan led the S&P 500 index higher after reporting an 11 percent increase in fourthquarter earnings, beating analysts expectations despite higher expenses. Mylans stock climbed $4.85, or 9.4 percent, to $56.27. Stocks also got a lift from a range of retailers that reported strong earnings. J.C. Penney jumped $1.51, or 25 percent, to $7.47 after the department store chain swung to a profit in the fourth quarter after posting a big loss in the same period a year earlier. Penney also reported its first quarterly gain in a key revenue figure in more than two years. Kohls rose $1.30, 2.4 percent, to $55.74 after the department store operator reported earnings that topped analysts estimates. Revenue fell but met Wall Streets expectations. After a tough start to the year, investor sentiment has shifted in February. The S&P 500 was down almost six percent for the year at the start of February. Investors were selling stocks as manufacturing contracted in China and as currencies in emerging market nations such as Turkey and Argentina plummeted against the dollar. The S&P 500 erased those losses this month and is now positive for the year. Some of the shift in sentiment was also thanks to the new Federal Reserve chief, Janet Yellen. Stocks jumped on Feb. 11, when Yellen told Congress she would continue the central banks market-friendly, low-interest rate policies. The comments were her first since taking over from Ben Bernanke earlier this month. On Thursday, Yellen told the Senate Banking Committee that some recent economic data have suggested sluggish growth in consumer spending and employment. She said the Fed will be watching to see if the slowdown proves to be a temporary blip caused by the severe winter weather. This time, Yellens testimony didnt have the same impact on the stock market as it did earlier. BusinessHIGHLIGHTS Hospitals coping better as drug shortages persist U.S. hospitals are coping better with ongoing shortages of hundreds of medications, but a new survey indicates obtaining those drugs from alternate sources is costing them hundreds of millions of dollars. Premier Inc., the hospital group that did the survey, conservatively estimates that cost at $230 million a year for the country's 5,000 hospitals. That doesn't include costs for additional workers or overtime hours for staff searching for scarce drugs, as well as some other extra costs, which come out of hospitals already razorthin profit margins. Shortages of drugs, particularly generic injectable drugs that had been cheap, have escalated since 2005. While the number of new shortages has declined recently, the total of new and prolonged shortages keeps climbing. Causes include quality problems, recalls and the small number of manufacturers.

OPINION Page A10FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2014 Monday morning quarterbackingIt is easy to Monday morning quarterback, which is exactly the case in Mondays article in the Chroniclewhere Citrus Memorial Health Foundation discussed the termination of CEO Ryan Beaty and claimed that they now do not like the terms of the settlement that we all agreed to. To be clear, the provisions in the agreement were agreed to by both boards after much discussion and concessions by both the Foundation and the Trustees. To now claim that the CCHB held a financial gun to anyones head is not only disingenuous, it is unfair. There were many choices and options as we brought the agreement to a close. For example, both boards agreed to bring in a third party to lead the hospital until HCA took over. There was also an option to settle all lawsuits at the time of closing, as opposed to upon the signing of the LOI, which in turn would have saved taxpayer dollars as it related to the severance and payments to departing CEO Beaty. From the beginning, the CCHB has focused on accountability and transparency in its job to oversee the finances of the hospital. Financial stability and responsibility have been our mission from the very beginning. And, it is these same goals that have led us to where we are today with the closing of the deal to lease Citrus Memorial hospital on the horizon. Instead of infighting and finger pointing, I again encourage our partners at the Foundation to focus on how we can bring this closing to fruition and ensure first-class health care for Citrus County.Debbie Ressler, BSN CCHB Chairwoman Joe Rigney scholarship 20 years strongI recently received a donation to my sons scholarship fund from the class of 1993 on the 20th anniversary of his graduation. I have been very fortunate to be able to award three $1,000 scholarships in my sons name every year since 1993. I receive a $1,000 donation every year from somebody who wishes to remain anonymous. She had lost a brother in similar circumstances. I also receive a $1,000 donation from Chad Fugere, who graduated in 1994 from LHS. He was a very close friend of my son and they grew up together in Citrus Hills. I donate the third $1,000 donation. The criteria for receiving a scholarship: 1. Student must have a 3.0 GPA in their senior year. 2. Must have participated in a varsity sport in their senior year. 3. Must have been accepted to a college. 4. Must be a good kid! Thanks again to the class of 1993. Lecanto rocks!Joseph W. Rigney Lecanto Reports by presidential commissions are often like those statues that dominate public squares in Washington: massive in size, but opaque in origin and quickly obscured by a thick layer of grime. But one commission presented a report last month that reflects an unusual amount of bipartisan cooperation and good sense. It deserves far more attention than its received so far. The panel was formed by President Obama to recommend improvements in our election system after many Americans had to wait for hours to vote in 2012. In a masterstroke, the president appointed the top election lawyers from each party as cochairs: Democrat Robert Bauer and Republican Benjamin Ginsberg. (Ginsberg is a law partner of Cokies brother.) These men differ on many issues, but at heart they are professionals, not politicians. And in a capital where compromise is far too often equated with betrayal, they embraced a search for common ground. We looked for the areas where we could agree without abandoning our principles, as opposed to the areas where we knew we would end up disagreeing, Ginsberg told PBS NewsHour. Moreover, they started with facts, not fantasy. They reasserted the valuable principle that there is an objective reality that can be described and documented, a shared basis for pragmatic prescriptions. We looked at the evidence, Bauer said on PBS. We took testimony from state and local election officials. We heeded the advice of experts and looked at the most recent social science. And we looked at ... the interest and evolving expectations of voters. This is a more important and elusive ideal than it sounds. Washington is overrun today by ideological warriors who dont look at the evidence, but simply assert their prejudices and deny reality. Experts overwhelmingly agree, for example, that immigration and trade dont cost jobs, they create them; that climate change and evolution are scientifically sound; that Obama was born in Hawaii, not Kenya or Indonesia. Yet myths, rumors and outright falsehoods denying these indisputable facts continue to spread. Thats why its so refreshing to encounter a panel that assiduously listened to the evidence and the experts. And thats why their recommendations are so useful. Election rules can be highly controversial, tending to favor one party or the other, but the panel played it straight. As election law expert Heather Gerken of Yale Law School wrote, the report offers something we dont often see in policymaking circles these days: sanity. Some of the reports recommendations: Expand online registration. Americans increasingly use digital tools for banking and shopping, gaming and dating, and as Bauer put it, the voting process has to evolve in accordance with the way Americans currently live. Extend opportunities for early or mail-in voting. Voter participation in the U.S. is usually about 60 percent, well below other industrialized countries, but rates go up when voting becomes easier. In some states, the GOP has actually opposed more flexible rules, fearing they will help Democrats, but the Republicans on this panel rejected that cynical calculation. Improve voting technology. Machines in many jurisdictions, upgraded after the Florida Fiasco of 2000, are now breaking down. Says Bauer, Voters should be treated ... the way customers (are) at our best-run businesses. Open more schools as voting places. They are perfect for the job easy to find, with plenty of space and parking. But after the Newtown shooting, many communities turned skittish about allowing outsiders into their schools. The panels suggestion: Keep students and teachers at home on Election Day if security is a concern. Encourage states to exchange data from voter and motor vehicle lists. Fraud is rare, the panel said, but Republicans care deeply about this issue, and the Democrats agreed to a suggestion that could further diminish deception. The commission report has limits. Republicans in a number of states have passed voter ID laws designed to discourage voters who lean Democratic the poor, young and disabled. And the Supreme Court last year struck down a portion of the Voting Rights Act, weakening federal supervision over election rules in states with a history of racial discrimination. Both developments could restrict, rather than expand, the right to vote. The Obama administration is correct to challenge them, in the courts and in Congress. In the interest of consensus, the commission avoided both topics, but the issues they did address are still vitally important. About 8,000 local jurisdictions supervise our elections and every one of them should read the commissions report and implement its recommendations.Steve and Cokie Roberts can be contacted by email at stevecokie@gmail.com.

Now, as the lease agreement between CMH and Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) nears conclusion, CMHs more than half century as a public hospital will come to a close. Triggered by a destructive governance battle, the demise of CMH as a public hospital does not mean the medical needs of our community will no longer be served. Fortunately, millions of dollars in anticipated proceeds from the lease agreement with HCA promise to underwrite a new era of charity and community-oriented health care. In preparing for this new era, State Sen. Charlie Dean and State Rep. Jimmie Smith have filed legislation to create a community trust to oversee the proceeds. As proposed, the legislation provides a positive framework that calls for voters to elect two members of the trust board, as well as it being subject to the states Government in the Sunshine Law and annual audits by the Citrus County Clerk of Court. In moving forward, the trusts details must be carefully crafted to preserve its financial integrity as well as restore the publics lost confidence, if it is to benefit county residents for generations to come. Crafting of the trusts details should strive for community consensus and not the interests of a particular party by seeking input from all parties with a vested interest in the trusts future. Trust board membership should be large enough to represent the community at-large with staggered terms limited to four years as a guard against the pressures of internal politics and external influences. Board members should not be officers in organizations that may benefit from the trust to preclude possible conflicts of interest. The board should be prohibited from tapping into the trusts financial principal to preserve its fiscal integrity. Also, annual distributions from the trusts investments should only be made to support charity and community health care needs. The community trust promises to underwrite a new era of public health care for future generations of county residents. That promise, however, can only be realized if the governing details are developed with the best interests of our community being paramount.

Looking for the Duke billI didnt see any bill by Jimmie Smith or Charlie Dean about stopping us from having to pay Duke Energys operating costs.Fuel for thoughtIm reading the editors note (in Sound Off, page A8, Feb. 8). I notice that Tobey Phillips, spokeswoman from the (county), said its more cost effective for the county vehicles, including like the police cars, fire trucks, etc., to purchase fuel from the local gas stations vs. our own bulk fuel station in Lecanto. If thats the case, why do we have a bulk fuel station in Lecanto? Shouldnt we close it and sell it? What is the purpose of it if its more expensive?Stop the rate hikesSaturdays (Feb. 8) paper there, Chronicle, about we need some bills from our representatives, meaning Charlie Dean and Jimmie T.

Senate blocks Dems bill boosting vets benefits Associated PressWASHINGTON A divided Senate on Thursday derailed Democratic legislation that would have provided $21 billion for medical, education and jobtraining benefits for the nations veterans. The bill fell victim to election-year disputes over spending and fresh penalties against Iran. Each party covets the allegiance of the countrys 22 million veterans and their families, and each party blamed the other for turning the effort into a chess match aimed at forcing politically embarrassing votes. Republicans used a procedural move to block the bill after Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., chided GOP lawmakers about their priorities. I personally, I have to say this honestly, have a hard time understanding how anyone could vote for tax breaks for billionaires, for millionaires, for large corporations and then say we dont have the resources to protect our veterans, said Sanders, the measures chief author. Democrats noted that more than two dozen veterans groups supported the legislation. But Republicans said they still favor helping veterans while also wanting to be prudent about federal spending. Were not going to be intimidated on this, said Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, top Republican on the Senate Budget Committee. Were going to do the right things for the veterans of America. The fight over priorities demonstrated again the bitter divisions that have restrained the legislative process in recent years. Efforts to address immigration, a tax overhaul and job creation all seem likely to go nowhere this year. Republicans criticized how most of Sanders bill was paid for with unspent money from the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq and the winding down of American military involvement in Afghanistan. The GOP says those are not real savings because no one expected those dollars to be spent as those wars ended. Republicans also objected to provisions making more veterans without service-connected injuries eligible for treatment at Department of Veterans Affairs facilities. They said that would swamp an already overburdened system. The vote sidetracking the bill was 56-41, with supporters falling four votes short of the 60 they needed to prevail. Sens. Jerry Moran of Kansas and Dean Heller of Nevada were the only Republicans voting to keep the legislation alive and the only lawmakers crossing party lines on the vote. Veterans groups complained about being caught in partisan crossfire. Veterans dont have time for this nonsense and veterans are tired of being used as political chew toys, said Paul Rieckhoff, founder and CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, which supported the legislation. during the night. She said when she went to check on them, they looked like they were sleeping. Hosleys mother also told deputies that her son has an emotional/behavioral disability. She also told sheriffs officials she believed her son assaulted the girl based on his history of sexual assault on children. The arrest reports states Hosley had been arrested when he was 14 and 15 years old on charges of sexual battery on a minor. When Hosley was confronted about the allegation at home, he reportedly fled. Hosley was later apprehended and taken for medical assessment in Ocala because he was reportedly suicidal. He was later arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

Glass Associated PressIllinois Rep. Tom Demmer, R-Rochelle, shows off his Google glasses Thursday to lawmakers while on the House floor during a session at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield, Ill. Court: School can ban US flags for Mexican holidaySAN FRANCISCO A federal appeals court says high school officials in Northern California acted appropriately when they ordered students wearing AmericanflagT-shirts to turn the garments inside out during the Mexican independence celebration Cinco de Mayo. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that officials concerns of racial violence outweighed students freedom of expression rights. Administrators feared the American-flag shirts would inflame the passions of Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday.Judges say drivers can use cellphone mapsFRESNO, Calif. Drivers in California can legally read a map on their handheld cellphones while behind the wheel, a state appeals court ruled Thursday. The 5th District Court of Appeal reversed the case of a Fresno man who was ticketed in January 2012 for looking at a map on his iPhone 4 while stuck in traffic. The driver, Steven Spriggs, challenged the $165 fine and won. Spriggs was caught up by road work and grabbed his cellphone to find an alternate route when a California Highway Patrol officer on a motorcycle spotted him and stopped him to write the ticket. In their 18-page ruling, the appellate judges said Californias law prohibiting people from talking on their cellphones without a hands-free device could have been written more clearly, but it doesnt apply to looking at maps on cellphones. The law a California Highway Patrol officer used to ticket Spriggs applies specifically to people listening and talking on cellphones, not using their mobile phone in other ways, the court said. From wire reports Nation BRIEFS NATION& WORLD Page A12FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Associated PressPHOENIX Gov. Jan Brewers veto of a bill allowing businesses to refuse service to gays exposed a fracture within the Republican Party between social conservatives and the GOPs pro-business wing, a split that Democrats hope to turn into a midterm election campaign issue. The Republican governor has made job creation and business expansion the centerpiece of her administration, and she was more than willing to disregard the wishes of social conservatives amid protests from major corporations such as American Airlines and Apple Inc. As a result, the GOP base was left dispirited, and opponents of gay marriage are struggling to find their footing after significant losses in the courts and statehouses. Its leading people to say: Were not sure where the Republican party is on something as basic as economic freedom, said Dan Holler, a spokesman for Heritage Action, a conservative group in Washington, D.C., that argued the proposal was aimed simply at allowing people to run businesses as they saw fit. There certainly is a risk, especially as you head into the midterm elections, when the turnout of your base is essential. Brewer vetoed the measure Wednesday night after Republicans ranging from Mitt Romney to her states two U.S. Senators urged her to reject the measure, which emerged from the GOP-controlled state Legislature. The bill was designed to give added protection from lawsuits to people who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays or others who offend their beliefs. Opponents called it an open attack on gays. Gay marriage is increasingly popular nationwide, and the Democratic Party already has been claiming that measures like the Arizona bill are a throwback to Jim Crow laws. The measures are inspired by the cases of a New Mexico wedding photographer and bakers in Colorado and Oregon who separately refused service for gay weddings or civil unions and have been penalized by courts. Democrats argued that the GOP would pay a price for even considering such explosive legislation. This bill should have never gone this far, and the fact that it did shows how far to the right the Republican Party has lurched, said Rep. Steve Israel, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. It is yet another reminder of the Republican brand of intolerance. GOP split over Arizona bill veto Elated Democrats hope issue will help boost fortunes in midterm elections Associated PressSIMFEROPOL, Ukraine Masked gunmen stormed parliament in Ukraines strategic Crimea region Thursday as Russian fighter jets scrambled to patrol borders, while the newly formed government pledged to prevent a national breakup with strong backing from the West the stirrings of a potentially dangerous confrontation reminiscent of Cold War brinksmanship. Moscow granted shelter to Ukraines fugitive president, Viktor Yanukovych, state media said. He was said to be holed up in a luxury government retreat and to have scheduled a news conference today near the Ukrainian border. As gunmen wearing unmarked camouflage uniforms erected a sign reading Crimea is Russia in the provincial capital, Ukraines interim prime minister declared the Black Sea territory has been and will be a part of Ukraine. The escalating conflict sent Ukraines finances plummeting further, prompting Western leaders to prepare an emergency financial package. Yanukovych, whose abandonment of closer ties to Europe in favor of a bailout loan from Russia set off three months of protests, finally fled by helicopter last week as his allies deserted him. The humiliating exit was a severe blow to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who had been celebrating his signature Olympics even as Ukraines drama came to a head. Russia has pledged to respect Ukraines territorial integrity. But the dispatch of Russian fighter jets Thursday to patrol borders and drills by some 150,000 Russian troops almost the entirety of its force in the western part of the country signaled strong determination not to lose Ukraine to the West. Thursdays dramatic developments posed an immediate challenge to Ukraines new authorities as they named an interim government for the country, whose population is divided in loyalties between Russia and the West. Crimea, which was seized by Russian forces in the 18th century under Catherine the Great, was once the crown jewel in Russian and then Soviet empires. It only became part of Ukraine in 1954 when Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev transferred jurisdiction from Russia a move that was a mere formality until the 1991 Soviet collapse meant Crimea landed in an independent Ukraine. Russia flexes muscles Ukrainian president reportedly flees to Moscow; Kremlin raises stakes Associated PressA pro-Russian demonstrator waves Russian and Crimean flags from an old Soviet Army tank during a protest in front of a local government building in Simferopol, Ukraine, which is located in Crimea. Associated PressWASHINGTON Ice cream lovers beware: The government knows youre unlikely to stop after half a cup. New nutrition labels proposed Thursday for many popular foods, including ice cream, aim to more accurately reflect what people actually eat. And the proposal would make calorie counts on labels more prominent, too, reflecting that nutritionists now focus more on calories than fat. For the first time, labels also would be required to list any sugars that are added by manufacturers. In one example of the change, the estimated serving size for ice cream would jump from a half cup to a cup, so the calorie listing on the label would double as well. The idea behind the change, the first overhaul of the labels in two decades, isnt that the government thinks people should be eating twice as much; its that they should understand how many calories are in what they already are eating. The Food and Drug Administration says that, by law, serving sizes must be based on actual consumption, not some ideal. Our guiding principle here is very simple, that you as a parent and a consumer should be able to walk into your local grocery store, pick up an item off the shelf and be able to tell whether its good for your family, said first lady Michelle Obama, who joined the FDA in announcing the proposed changes at the White House. Mrs. Obama made the announcement as part of her Lets Move initiative to combat child obesity, which is marking its fourth anniversary. On Tuesday, she announced new Agriculture Department rules that would reduce marketing of less-healthful foods in schools. The new labels would be less cluttered. FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg called them a more user-friendly version. But they are probably several years away. The FDA will take comments on the proposal for 90 days, and a final rule could take another year. Once its final, the agency has proposed giving industry two years to comply.

McIlroy swung freely and walked briskly on his way to a 7-under 63 on Thursday, with birdies on the last two holes at PGA National giving him a oneshot lead over Russell Henley after the first round of the Honda Classic. If nothing else, it was big improvement from the last official round he played on PGA National. McIlroy was 7 over through eight holes last year when he became so frustrated with mounting expectations and a slumping game that he walked off the course in the middle of the second round. He said it was a mistake that he would never repeat. He apparently buried the past with his clubs, if not his head. Its not something I really thought about out there, McIlroy said. Coming in this week, I knew that I was playing well and I just wanted to try and get off to a good start. ... Regardless of what happened last year or where it is, its always nice to shoot a round like this and get yourself in the mix early. Tiger Woods wouldnt know the feeling so far this year. In his first tournament in a month, Woods couldnt make a birdie putt early and had to scramble for pars late in his round. A birdie on the last hole gave him a 71, leaving him eight shots behind.

See HONDA/ Page B4 Grip on the ball Early on, CRs Humphreys has look of an aceSEANARNOLD CorrespondentCrystal River baseball coach Bobby Stack didnt enter this season expecting a lot from Jordan Humphreys on the mound, since the junior was returning from a back injury that limited him to a spattering of relief innings last season. Hed come in and throw a good inning or two, and he closed out some close games for us last year, Stack said. I thought thats what we were going to have to do with him this year, but he came out healthy. Its a good thing because weve got kids sick and others with arm trouble, and hes come out pretty strong. Humphreys, who plays third base when not pitching, took a break over the summer to heal, and now leads the Pirates in innings (12) and strikeouts (14), while having allowed just two hits and a walk. The best judge of Humphreys effectiveness is his longtime catcher Mason Pateracki. Pateracki, a four-year varsity starter, has caught Humphreys since the latter was a freshman, and said the pair mesh well. Hes definitely dominating on his fastball, said Pateracki, whos pacing the Pirates with a .375 batting average. Not a lot of hitters are getting around on that. His changeup is actually his best pitch. Humphreys delivered six solid innings in a loss against Citrus last Friday while having his best night of the season at the plate, where he had a single and a game-tying home run over the scoreboard in the fourth inning. It was the first game I actually came out and hit the ball, Humphreys said. Im starting to see the ball better now. I think as the games go on and we see more pitching, our whole team is seeing the ball a lot better. With a strong collection of arms that also include junior Derrick Rogers, senior MATT PFIFFNER /ChronicleIn two starts, Crystal River junior pitcher Jordan Humphreys has recorded 14 strikeouts in 12 innings of work, while allowing just two hits and a walk to date.

Dawson (2-0) hit one batter, but didnt walk any in an 88-pitch effort. He was very efficient, Citrus coach Brady Bogart said. He got a lot of early outs and slowed the game down the last six outs. He made some good pitches and some big pitches. Brooks Brashers sacrifice fly in the first inning to score Austin Bogart, who singled, produced the games lone run.

From staff, wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS Panthers, Canes both looking for spark at plate SEANARNOLD CorrespondentCitrus and Lecanto are hoping for an offensive spark in tonights District 5A-6 tilt in Inverness. Both have counted on stout pitching to keep their respective teams in games, while the bats have been slower coming. The Hurricanes stemmed a three-game skid to start the season with back-to-back wins over Gainesville Buchholz and Crystal River last week, but are batting .150 as a team, albeit against an opening slate of opponents that have jumped out to a combined 20-5 start. Nowhere to go but up! said CHS head coach Brady Bogart, whos lamented his clubs slow bat speed this year. Weve got a lot of kids that have one or no hits, and weve only scored 10 runs (in five games) this year. Its got to get better. Dave Logues Panthers are also struggling at the plate, which has magnified the teams mistakes on the base paths and in the field. They got in the win column with a 4-2 victory at Gulf on Tuesday, but averaged just three runs a game one more than Citrus before yesterdays home meeting with Weeki Wachee. Their scheduled district opener with Dunnellon was rained out last Friday, and has yet to be rescheduled. Logue estimated his team allowed 13 unearned runs in its four early losses, which came against teams with a combined record of 16-5. Weve had some big baserunning blunders that just kill the momentum, and weve had some defensive errors, said Logue, whose team scored two runs in the eighth to beat Gulf. We dont have a lot of room for error, and its compounded on the defensive side of the ball. We werent facing teams that are going to make those mistakes. Guys are pressing at the plate, but Im optimistic, Logue continued. Theyve never really given up, they just havent finished the game. We were there in each game until basically one bad inning.

For a moment at the HSBC Womens Champions on Thursday, she thought she had made a similar mistake. After shooting a 6-under 66 to take a one-stroke lead in the opening round, Webb feared she may have forgotten to sign her scorecard. She rushed back into the scoring tent only to find her scorecard was just fine. Ive just had trouble getting out of the scorer tent since then, she said about her mistake in Australia. I walked out (today) and couldnt remember if I signed my card, which it would have been too late anyway. Swedens Caroline Hedwall and American Paula Creamer were tied for second after shooting 5-under 67, a stroke ahead of 2012 champion Angela Stanford and Taiwans Teresa Lu in joint fourth. Disqualification aside, Webb is having a strong start to the season. A week after the ill-fated Australian Ladies Masters, she won her fifth Womens Australian Open title, and 40th overall. The 39-year-old Australian has won seven majors in her long career, but none since the Kraft Nabisco Championship in 2006. Her results have been consistent, if not dominant, in recent years she had six top-10 finishes on the LPGA Tour last year and one win at the ShopRite LPGA Classic. Ive had a good career and I feel like I want to finish in the fashion that I started, she said. I just continue to work hard, and my working hard now is probably a little different to my working hard 20 years ago, but its still working hard. Webb birdied four of her first six holes on Thursday, then sank a difficult 15-foot putt to save par on the par4 11th hole. Her only mistake on the green was a close miss on the 12th hole when her birdie putt from 2 feet lipped out of the hole. Woods to get new sponsor for PGA event Associated PressPALM BEACH GARDENS The PGA Tour is closing on a deal for Detroit-based Quicken Loans to become title sponsor of Tiger Woods tournament at Congressional, The Associated Press has learned. Two people who have been told about the deal said Quicken Loans could begin its sponsorship before the next tournament, to be played June 26-29. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal is not completed and has not been announced. Dan Gilbert, who owns the Cleveland Cavaliers, is the chairman and founder Quicken Loans. It would be a big boost to the Tiger Woods Foundation, which receives the net proceeds from the event currently called the AT&T National. The foundation has created seven Tiger Woods Learning Centers, three of them in the Washington, D.C., area. AT&T, in the final year of its contract, was not planning to renew the sponsorship. The Dallas-based company announced two years ago that it would sponsor the Byron Nelson Championship starting in 2015. AT&T already is under contract through 2024 as the title sponsor of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the PGA Tour. It also sponsors a Champions Tour event in San Antonio. Associated PressTiger Woods may have a sponsor in Quicken Loans for his tournament at Congressional on June 26-29. AT&T National boost Predators down Lightning 3-2 Associated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn.

Martin St. Louis had both goals for the Lightning, losers of three of their last four. With time winding down in the final period, Hornqvist collected the rebound of Mike Fishers shot and slipped it by Tampa Bay goaltender Ben Bishop.Red Wings 6, Senators 1OTTAWA, Ontario Johan Franzen scored three goals and the Detroit Red Wings defeated the Ottawa Senators 6-1.

Robin Lehner allowed six goals on 15 shots before Andrew Hammond made his NHL debut, stopping all nine shots he faced. Things fell apart for the Senators in a nine-minute in the first period. Ryan had a goal overturned after it was ruled that he kicked it in, and then the Senators leading goal scorer missed two great chances on the power play. The Red Wings later scored on consecutive shots.Capitals 5, Panthers 4SUNRISE Alex Ovechkin scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and had two assists and Troy Brouwer had two power-play goals, lifting the Washington Capitals to a 5-4 victory over the Florida Panthers.

Daniel Briere scored twice, once on the power play, and Max Pacioretty also scored with the man advantage, his 27th of the year. Brendan Gallagher netted his 15th for the Canadiens and Alexei Emelin also scored his second of the season. Crosby, who leads the NHL with 80 points, scored his 29th and added an assist.Rangers 2, Blackhawks 1NEW YORK Cam Talbot, subbing for resting Olympian Henrik Lundqvist, stopped 31 shots, and Derick Brassard and Rick Nash scored as the New York Rangers returned from the Sochi break with a 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. Talbot got the nod after Lundqvist received extended work in Swedens run to the gold medal game in the Olympics. Talbot made the most of his opportunity, getting his 11th career win in 18 NHL games all this season. He was 11.6 seconds away from a shutout, but Peter Regin scored after goalie Corey Crawford was pulled. Patrick Kane nearly tied it seconds later, but Talbot stopped him with his pad. New York has won six of seven. Lundqvist is expected to play Saturday in Philadelphia when the Rangers start a back-to-back set.Sharks 7, Flyers 3PHILADELPHIA Joe Pavelski had a hat trick to move into a tie for second in the NHL in goals scored, and Raffi Torres and Logan Couture each tallied twice in their return to the lineup following injuries as the San Jose Sharks defeated the Philadelphia Flyers 7-3 in the first game for both teams following the Olympic break. Pavelski, one of four Sharks Olympians, scored all three of his goals in a dominating second period when San Jose outscored the Flyers 5-0.

Ryane Clowe also scored and the special teams tallied twice on the power play and once short-handed as the Devils opened the postOlympic break with a much-needed win if it wants to make the playoffs after missing last season. Patrik Elias added a goal and two assists and Cory Schneider made 17 saves as New Jersey salvaged the final game of its four-game season series with Columbus (1-2-1). Artem Anisimov scored for the Blue Jackets and set up one by Marian Gaborik.Jets 3, Coyotes 2, SOWINNIPEG, Manitoba Olli Jokinen scored the shootout winner as the Winnipeg Jets edged the Phoenix Coyotes 3-2. Bryan Little and Blake Wheeler scored in regulation for the Jets, who continued their winning ways under new head coach Paul Maurice.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Martin Hanzal scored for Phoenix in the first game for both teams after a 19day break for the Winter Olympics. Jets forward Devin Setoguchi also beat Mike Smith in the shootout and Antoine Vermette was the only Coyotes player to get one past Ondrej Pavelec in four rounds of penalty shots. Winnipeg pulled within one point of the Coyotes (27-21-11) as both teams chase a wild-card playoff spot, although Phoenix has two games in hand.

With a 1.91 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 11 innings, junior Alex Atkinson, the winning pitcher against the Pirates last Friday, is leading the Canes starters on the mound, while sophomore Austin Bogart and junior Cy Yates remain strong bullpen options.SRCS starts strongPitching depth and the slugging of senior Adam Gage have helped Seven Rivers Christian to a 4-0 start. Four different starters Cory Weiand, Coy Phillips and Parker and Tyler Pillsbury have wins on the mound, while Gage and eighth-grader Garret Griggs each have 10 hits. The Warriors most impressive win is a 5-4 season-opening triumph at Dunnellon, which saw Gage knock a pair of doubles and drive in two runs, while Phillips added two RBIs and Weiand two hits. Parker Pillsbury earned the win before making way for Weiand in the sixth. Dunnellon is a top-notch ball club, so that was a big win for us, first-year Warriors coach Jon Bolin said. We got into a position where we got key hits and our pitching was able to keep us in the game. Weve gotten it done on the mound. I am most pleased with our pitching staff, thats for sure. I feel like we can pitch with anybody.FrenemiesFirst-year Dunnellon head coach Chris Cole makes his return to Crystal River tonight, where he was a teammate and good friend of Pirates coach Bobby Stack in high school. The Tigers (2-2) have blowout wins over Chiefland and Ocala West Port, but are coming off the loss to Seven Rivers. Stack has confidence the program will soon thrive under Cole. Chris is a great friend of mine, he said. I heard theyre going through some rough spots, but I think theyre going to be good before its all over. Hell figure it out. Kameron Pennington and sophomore Tyler Voland, Crystal River is led by its pitching. We have three starters who can throw it, Stack said. We can flip a coin to pick who we want to throw in a big game, but right now Humphreys has the edge. Thats who we like on our Fridays. Both Humphreys and Pateracki have verbally committed to colleges Pateracki to Thomas University in Georgia; Humphreys to St. Johns River State College, where his brother Tyler is currently hitting .321. Having Tyler out here my freshman year helped me out, said Jordan of the 2012 Chronicle Baseball Player of the Year. He also helps me out when he comes home. The younger Humphreys sees himself more as an everyday player, but Stack thinks he has more potential as a pitcher at the moment. He said Humphreys is going through a maturing process as a hitter, as he cultivates his mental approach in order to take better advantage of his power. Jordan was an easy out when he wasnt thinking in the box, Stack said, and now hes starting to understand things. If you swing through a fastball early in the count trying to hit it 400 feet, then youre going to strike out on the breaking ball. Stack compares Humphreys development at the plate with Paterackis, noting that both benefit from a more simple focus in the batters box. Masons made some big adjustments, Stack said. We got into his head a little bit and hes definitely seeing the ball better right now. Your better athletes tend to go through a funk mentally, and youve got to bring them back to where they are physically. Jordan will be all right. If he gets smarter, he can be a next-level hitter. Crystal River plays host to Dunnellon tonight in a District 5A-6 matchup at 6:30 p.m. or the other. I either hit it good and missed the putt, and then scrap around and make a putt. In his other two events this year, Woods was eight shots behind after the opening round at Torrey Pines and five shots behind at Dubai. He goes into the second round Friday outside the cut line. Henley opened with five birdies and six holes before he cooled off for a 64. Past champion Rory Sabbatini, William McGirt and Jamie Donaldson of Wales were at 65. Zach Johnson was four shots behind and thrilled about his 67. He hit two shots into the water on his way to a quadruple-bogey 8 on his second hold of the tournament. The former Masters champ followed with seven birdies to get back in the game. It was a day where it could have gone the other way quick, Johnson said. McIlroy has been shifting gears since late last year, which he closed out with a win at the Australian Open. He had chances to win in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and he played well in a second-round loss to Harris English last week at Match Play. But this looked like the McIlroy who won two majors, each by eight shots, bobbing along the fairways and swinging with no fear. It helped to make a few putts, such as the 25-foot birdie on No. 2 and a 45-foot birdie putt on No. 11. He had a few par saves that kept him motoring along, such as the upand-down from 40 yards at No. 9, making a putt from just outside 10 feet. Boy Wonder took off from there. He hit into 8 feet for birdie on the 493yard 10th hole, made the long one at No. 11 and then stuffed a gap wedge into 6 feet on No. 12. You cant fake it around here, McIlroy said. You have to play well to shoot good scores, and I was able to do that today. McIlroy put last year behind him, though it was hard to ignore the turnaround. He was the defending champion and No. 1 in the world last year, newly signed to a big Nike contract and struggling to break par. He also was in the early stages of leaving a management company for the second time in two years. It all got to be too much, and as he walked up to the 18th green at PGA National, he shook hands and headed straight to the parking lot. He said then he was not in a good place mentally. Now he is playing well. He is adjusted to his equipment. Hes engaged to tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, who followed him around the golf course. Im in a great place, McIlroy said. I couldnt be happier. The finish didnt hurt. The 24-yearold from Northern Ireland took aim at the flag over the water on the par-3 17th and made a 12-foot birdie putt. He finished with a fairway metal into the front bunker, and a simple shot to 4 feet for birdie on the par-5 closing hole. He still hasnt won a PGA Tour event since the BMW Championship at the end of the 2012 season. He hasnt won on the European Tour since Dubai at the end of that year to capture the money title on both sides of the Atlantic. But with every tournament, hes moving in the right direction. Ive reached a point now where Im very comfortable with everything in my game and my swing, he said. Im seeing shots the way I want to see them. When I do that, I feel like the scores are just a byproduct of all the hard work and making good swings.DivotsPhil Mickelson, playing PGA National for the first time since he was an amateur, had two birdies and a double bogey for a 70. ...

Baker, an Oregon State commit, broke open a close game Thursday with his dynamic, all-around effort and ability to get to the basket. Hamilton County (26-4) had a strong first half and took an 18-10 lead in the first period after Shaquille Williams scored off of a turnover. However, Malone (20-8) closed out the period strong behind a four-point play from Baker and would eventually take a 31-29 halftime lead. While Baker almost single-handedly carried Malone in the first half, his teammates Antwain Johnson and Xavier Gray helped with the heavy lifting in the second half. Johnson finished with 19 points and eight rebounds, while Gray added six points and 14 rebounds.Orlando Christian Prep beats Grandview Prep 53-49LAKELAND Mike Tolbert sank four free throws in the final seconds to help Orlando Christian Prep hold on for a 53-49 victory over Grandview Prep in the Florida Class 2A boys basketball championship game. The Warriors (34-1) stormed out to an early lead Thursday, and it looked like the one of the nations top teams would have an easy road to their fourth state title in six years. However, Grandview Prep (30-5) wasnt going to go away quietly. Grandview trimmed the deficit to 24-22 early in the third period but the Warriors outscored the Pride 16-3 for the rest of the stanza. The Pride grinded their way back into the game but couldnt get ahead. From wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Braun homers in return to Brewers Associated PressTAMPA Derek Jeter got a partial standing ovation Thursday before going hitless in two at-bats in the first spring training game of his final season, a New York Yankees 8-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Yankees captain, who turns 40 in June, hit a double-play grounder to second off Pittsburgh right-hander Charlie Morton in the first and grounded out to third during the fourth against lefthander Jeff Locke. Limited to 17 games last season due to leg injuries, Jeter was at shortstop in his first exhibition season appearance. He broke his left ankle in the 2012 AL championship series and did not appear at shortstop last spring training until March 13. Jeter had just 11 at-bats in five games during spring training last year, stayed behind for rehabilitation at New Yorks minor league complex and broke the ankle again. He returned to the Yankees on July 11 but wound up on the disabled list three more times.Tigers 5, Braves 2LAKELAND Detroit newcomers Joba Chamberlain and Joe Nathan each pitched a scoreless inning, helping the Tigers beat the Atlanta Braves 5-2. Chamberlain and Nathan were brought in to solidify a Tigers bullpen that struggled through much of last season. Chamberlain, the right-hander who floundered with the Yankees in 2013, had a strikeout. Nathan, who had 43 saves for Texas last year, struck out two. It was the Tigers debut for both. Rick Porcello started for the Tigers and allowed one run in two innings. He struck out three. Kris Medlin allowed one run in two innings in his spring debut for the Braves. Jason Heyward hit a long homer off of Duane Below in his second at-bat.Blue Jays 7, Phillies 5DUNEDIN Jose Bautista kept up his torrid start to the spring, hitting two doubles and driving in two runs that sent the Toronto Blue Jays over the Philadelphia Phillies 7-5. A day after hitting a long home run against the Phillies in his first at-bat of exhibition play, Bautista had an RBI double in the first inning off Philadelphia ace Cliff Lee. Bautista finished 2 for 2 with a walk. The former twotime major league homer champion missed the final six weeks last year because of a hip injury. Jose Reyes, Brett Lawrie and Melky Cabrera also drove in runs for Toronto. Philadelphias offense was powered by a pair of home runs from bench hopefuls: Darin Ruf hit a two-run shot in the third and John Mayberry Jr. had a solo drive in the sixth. Blue Jays starter R.A. Dickey allowed one unearned run in two innings.Brewers 11, Athletics 3PHOENIX Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer in his first at-bat back from suspension, Juan Francisco slugged two homers and the Milwaukee Brewers opened their spring training schedule with an 11-3 win over the Oakland Athletics. Braun hit an 0-1 pitch from starter Tommy Milone high in the air and over the fence near the left-field corner. The 2011 NL MVP was greeted by mainly a hearty chorus of cheers, though there were some jeers before the at-bat. It was Brauns first time in the Brewers lineup since July 21, 2013. He was suspended the next day for violating Major League Baseballs antidrug agreement. Milone was tagged for three runs in two innings, while Jed Lowrie had a tworun double in the first for Oakland.Mariners 7, Padres 1PEORIA, Ariz. Robinson Cano lined a single into center field on the first pitch he saw in a Seattle uniform, part of a two-run first inning that sent the Mariners over the San Diego Padres 7-1 in a Cactus League opener. Cano drew the loudest ovation of the day when he was introduced, then got his hit against Eric Stults. The All-Star left the Yankees in the offseason and signed a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Mariners. Cano played three innings. He walked on four pitches in the third before being lifted for a pinch runner. He had two assists playing at second base. Seattle starter Erasmo Ramirez gave up two hits and struck out one in two innings.Rangers 11, Royals 7SURPRISE, Ariz. Yu Darvish struck out four in two innings of the spring opener for Texas, and Prince Fielder hit a towering solo homer as the Rangers beat the Kansas City Royals 11-7. Darvish, who led the majors with 277 strikeouts and was second in the AL Cy Young Award voting last season, threw 23 of 29 pitches for strikes. The Rangers struggled at times last year to score runs behind Darvish, who was the first pitcher since 1989 to have four 1-0 losses in the same season. They led 4-0 before Darvish threw his last pitch in the Cactus League opener. Fielder, acquired in a trade from Detroit for Ian Kinsler, pulled a homer over the Rangers bullpen, well beyond the 350-foot sign on the right field fence.Diamondbacks (ss) 5, Cubs 2MESA, Ariz. Jeff Samardzija pitched two shutout innings before an overflow crowd in the Chicago Cubs opener at their new stadium, a 5-2 loss to an Arizona Diamondbacks split-squad. The crowd of 14,486 at the new stadium at Riverview Park set a Cactus League record. Samardzija, the Cubs No. 1 starter last season, allowed a walk and a single to start the game, but then got Paul Goldschmidt to fly out. He then struck out Aaron Hill and Eric Chavez to end the first inning. Samardzija allowed a single to Miguel Montero in the second inning. Martin Prado had two singles and a run-scoring double for Arizona. Chavez followed Prados double with a two-run homer in the fifth. Cubs reliever Jose Veras gave up two runs in the sixth.Indians 12, Reds 3GOODYEAR, Ariz. Justin Masterson struck out two in a scoreless inning, catching prospect Jake Lowery hit a grand slam and the Cleveland Indians homered three times overall during a 12-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Elliot Johnson and Tyler Naquin added two-run homers. Carlos Santana made his first start at third base for the Indians, who are trying the catcher at a new position. He had a single in two at-bats but no chances in the field. Zach Cozart had a two-run double for the Reds. Leadoff hitter Billy Hamilton singled in two at-bats. Masterson started and gave up one hit. Reds starter Johnny Cueto gave up a hit and a pair of walks and struck out two in two scoreless innings, a successful debut for his shortened delivery.Dodgers 4, Dbacks (ss) 3GLENDALE, Ariz. Zack Greinke left with a strained right calf after four pitches, Juan Uribe homered and had an RBI single and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat an Arizona Diamondbacks split-squad 4-3. The Dodgers said Greinkes injury was mild. Grienke, the Dodgers No. 2 starter, was making his first spring start after saying he had zero interest making the trip for the Dodgers two regular-season games in Sydney, Australia, March 22-23 against Arizona. But now Greinke said hed like to start a game at Sydney Cricket Ground. Uribe drove in Adrian Gonzalez and connected for a solo shot to left field in the fourth. Diamondbacks starter Randall Delgado made his first spring appearance. He worked 3 2/3 innings, allowing four hits and one run. He struck out two.BASEBALLCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFRIDAY, FEBRUARY28, 2014 B5 000HAKQ 000HHV4 The Dunes Golf Club Play Where the Pros Play UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT 18200 Seville Clubhouse Drive, Weeki Wachee, FL 34614 Call us! 352-596-7888 3 Month Membership Available (Incl.

When the race finally resumed some six hours after the Daytona 500 was brought to a water-logged halt fans that made it to the finish were treated to one of the most intense races in memory. As NASCAR heads West for a two-race swing through Phoenix and Las Vegas, the challenge is to somehow duplicate all that energy from the Daytona 500. There are 36 events left this year, and NASCAR would have very few problems if they are half as exciting as the 500. It was electric, man, winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. said. I dont know what the hell was going on or why it was like that. I wish I knew, because thats what NASCAR wants to bottle and sell. NASCAR spent much of last year working on a new rules package to improve the on-track action at 1.5mile tracks, and the first test wont come until March 9 at Las Vegas. First up is this Sundays race at Phoenix, a one-mile, lowbanked tri-oval in the desert that will give teams a far better indicator than Daytona of how prepared they are for the season. But there will be new eyes watching, partly because of Earnhardts victory and partly because of the sheer competitiveness of Daytona, and theyll be expecting a similar show. I know everybody thinks its the greatest race they ever saw because Dale Jr. won it, Earnhardt said. Taking that out of the equation, I think it really was an exciting race and one of the most exciting Daytona 500s Ive ever been in and one of the most intense races Ive ever been in. It felt so different than any other race Id ever been in. The intensity level was at a max. Races usually have a lull in the middle, dont get going til the end when its time to put money on the line, people start picking up the intensity. We sustained it from the time we started, restarted, all the way to the end. I couldnt believe it. The race had 42 lead changes, and 37 of them came after the rain delay. Drivers ran three-wide when the situation called for single-file or maybe side-by-side racing. They seemed to treat every lap as if it was the last. Theres no one reason to credit for the aggression, but a likely contributor was that no one was sure if it would rain again. Should the sky suddenly open up, the race would have ended and the winner would have been the leader on that lap. NASCAR Chairman Brian France famously declared last September that he expected drivers to give 100 percent on every lap, and the Daytona 500 was evidence that everyone in the field is capable of meeting that demand. I think everyone raced a hard, 500-mile race. I never saw a lull in the action from where I was sitting, said third-place finisher Brad Keselowski. I couldnt be more pleased as both a participant and naturally a fan of the sport with how the 500 went from a competitive standpoint. Now its up to the drivers to deliver a similar product going forward.Tweeting foolSo reluctant to get involved in social media, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is suddenly a tweeting fool. He joked with Michael Waltrip that hed consider joining Twitter if he won the Daytona 500, and followed through with that promise with his first tweet early Monday. Earnhardt has since proven to be an expert at selfies, used photos of his whirlwind winners media tour to show his humor, and has already hosted his first Twitter chat. His account was established by JR Motorsports in 2008 just in case he ever wanted to use Twitter. It gradually added followers, even though the account was dormant, and a Twitter official said this week Earnhardt had 215,106 the day before the Daytona 500. That number had gone up to 216,320 by midnight on Sunday, and had swelled to 416,219 a mere 24 hours later. Now two days after that tweet, Earnhardt has passed the half-million mark and is rapidly closing in on six-time champion Jimmie Johnsons mark of 548,000 followers. Next up on the list? Danica Patrick, who last weekend became the first driver in NASCAR or IndyCar to reach 1 million followers. I just felt like I was going to join Twitter sooner or later and just didnt know when, Earnhardt said. Its becoming such a big part of our lives and such big part of exposure to our partners. Im having fun with it. I thought it would be after an event like winning the championship or the Daytona 500 it felt natural (Sunday night) to go ahead and kick it off. We had 200,000 followers without one tweet. I figured theyd been waiting around for something.Dejected DennyDenny Hamlin could spend a lot of time secondguessing what he could have done differently in the closing laps of the Daytona 500. He won two races during Speedweeks and was going for the trifecta with a victory in the Great American Race. But when he climbed back into his car after the lengthy rain delay, his radio communication was intermittent at best. He told his spotter he could only hear him on the backstretch, and there were times he could hear nothing at all. Since drivers rely on spotters to navigate traffic, Hamlin was hamstrung, particularly in the final twolap sprint to the finish when he made his charge through the field. He wound up second but had trouble finding much joy in the result. Any other year I probably would have been jumping up and down, he said. Me not being able to drive to my ability because I was being conservative, trying to spot for myself, thats not a way to race. But Hamlin, who missed four full races and most of a fifth with a fractured vertebra last season, cant dwell on Daytona. Encore, encore NASCARs current task is duplicating Daytona 500 thriller Photos by Associated PressKyle Larson (42) starts a multi-car collision between Turn 3 and Turn 4 with Austin Dillon (3), Jamie McMurray (1), Casey Mears (13), Marcos Ambrose (9), Kasey Kahne (5), Michael Annett (7) and Brain Vickers (55) during Feb. 23s Daytona 500 race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach. As NASCAR heads west for a two-race swing through Phoenix and Las Vegas, the challenge becomes duplicating the Daytona 500 so that the remaining 36 events are half as exciting. Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. Tony Stewart does not consider the Daytona 500 a disaster, despite the engine problems that spoiled his return to racing from a broken right leg. The three-time NASCAR champion wound up 35th in the season-opening race, but he logged enough laps during Speedweeks that he feels good going into the upcoming stretch of seven consecutive races. Stewart missed the final 15 races last year after breaking his leg in two places during a sprint car crash in Iowa. His first time back in a race car was Feb. 14, the day before he competed and was crashed out of the exhibition Sprint Unlimited. He also raced in the Budweiser Duel before the 500, giving him 672 miles of racing in three events. Stewart goes to Sundays race at Phoenix International Raceway a lot more confident than I was before we got to Daytona. I think having all the races that we ran, and actually getting in a crash, while not a great thing, allowed me to sort of test my leg and it felt good, Stewart said in a Stewart-Haas Racing team release. There have been some little things that have felt a little different, but for the most part, its felt like an old pair of tennis shoes that youre just comfortable with. Stewart confident about leg Tony Stewart Dale Earnhardt Jr. won Sundays Daytona 500 race, the second of his career.

By now, many of the front-runners have established themselves, but the nights big honor best picture remains a dramatic question mark. Associated Press film writer Jake Coyle and Jessica Herndon both see Years a Slave eking out the win. But they have plenty to say about not only who will win, but who should win and who should have been a contender. Best Picture nominees: Best Actor nominees: Best Actress nominees: Best Supporting roles: American Hustle, Captain Phillips, Dallas Buyers Club, Gravity, Her, Nebraska, Philomena, Years a Slave, The Wolf of Wall Street. Will Win: American Hustle feels too light actors in wigs having a ball. And Gravity, for all its galactic splendor, lacks the force of a solid story. So it must be Years a Slave, the candidate with the heft of history. But make no mistake: Theres no certainty in this close contest. Should Win: Years a Slave. Its an unforgettable odyssey, a reckoning of past movie portrayals of slavery and a uniquely unflinching tale of perseverance. Should Have Been a Contender: Few movies capture boyhood like Jeff Nichols soulful Mississippi River coming-of-age tale Mud. COYLE Will Win: Since Gravity stood out as an innovative prodigy advancing visual and 3-D possibilities, itll clean up in the tech categories and will be crowned the nights big victor. Should Win: Years a Slave. With its disturbing subject matter and factual significance, its the years most epic and vital narrative. Should Have Been a Contender: Before Midnight. A deliciously candid look at the dark and deeply romantic evolution of love. HERNDON Christian Bale, American Hustle; Bruce Dern, Nebraska; Leonardo DiCaprio, The Wolf of Wall Street; Chiwetel Ejiofor, Years a Slave; Matthew McConaughey, Dallas Buyers Club. Amy Adams, American Hustle; Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine; Sandra Bullock, Gravity; Judi Dench, Philomena; Meryl Streep, August: Osage County. Actors: Barkhad Abdi, Captain Phillips; Bradley Cooper, American Hustle; Michael Fassbender, Years a Slave; Jonah Hill, The Wolf of Wall Street; Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club. Actresses: Sally Hawkins, Blue Jasmine; Jennifer Lawrence, American Hustle; Lupita Nyongo, Years a Slave; Julia Roberts, August: Osage County; June Squibb, Nebraska. Will Win: McConaughey. He ditched vanity and became the favorite. But DiCaprio may just pull through with the win here. Should Win: DiCaprio may not have abandoned his good looks for this role, but he was aggressive, hilarious and the hedonism made him repulsive. Should Have Been a Contender: Joaquin Phoenix, Her. Carrying most of his scenes solo, he was the heart and soul of Spike Jonzes gentle romance. HERNDON Will Win: Blanchett, as an unraveling upper-class dame, was so pure and direct that her neurosis seemed instinctive. Should Win: Blanchett for her layered dethroned lady. Should Have Been a Contender: Julie Delpy. In Before Midnight she was the French everywoman: nurturing, sensual, feisty and vulnerable. Plus, she had a saucy way with words while arguing topless. HERNDON Actor: Will Win: Leto is the surest bet of the evening. Should Win: Fassbender. Should Have Been a Contender: James Franco, for his jaw-dropping, hysterical extremes in Spring Breakers. Actress: Will Win: Lawrence. This could very well go to the awards season breakout star Nyongo, but few dont love JLaw, who would accomplish the rare feat of back-to-back years of Oscar wins. Should Win: Squibb. Nebraska needs her bite. Should Have Been a Contender: Carey Mulligan, for her foul-mouthed fury in Inside Llewyn Davis. COYLE Photos by The Associated Press

March a breakout month for music in Citrus Jim DavisPLAY IT BY EAR Citizen Kane personal script up for sale at Sothebys JILLLAWLESS Associated PressLONDON Orson Welles personal draft script for Citizen Kane is up for sale from the collection of an American almost as wealthy as the movies monstrous newspaper mogul, though considerably more private. Sothebys auction house said Thursday it is offering the typed script, covered in the directors amendments and marked Mr. Welles working copy on the front page. The script, which has an estimated price of $25,000 to $33,000 is part of a sale of more than a thousand items owned by the late Stanley Seeger, an affluent collector of everything from old masters and contemporary art to historical oddities. Other lots to be offered March 5 and 6 in London include eight 100-millionyear-old dinosaur eggs, an armchair once owned by Winston Churchill and gangster Al Capones silver-plated cocktail shaker, a gift from his underlings engraved To a Regular Guy, from the Boys. Citizen Kane, released in 1941, has frequently been voted one of the best films ever made. It depicts the rise and fall of an ambitious tycoon modeled on the real figure of U.S. publisher William Randolph Hearst. The script being sold one of only two known surviving copies belonging to Welles bears the movies earlier title, American. It was changed, in part, to distance the fictional Charles Foster Kane from Hearst. Sothebys director David Macdonald, who put together the sale, said Thursday that Seeger often watched the movie, following along with script in hand. Seeger, who died in 2011 at the age of 81, lived quietly even reclusively but on a grand scale. He and his partner Christopher Cone had 11 properties, including the Tudor manor house Sutton Place in southern England, once owned by J. Paul Getty. All were filled with art and artifacts, as was Seegers yacht which boasted a Cezanne on its walls. The sale includes items from 50 countries, from Adm. Horatio Nelsons silver teapot to a claret jug from the Titanic and dinnerware by graffiti artist Keith Haring. In his lifetime, Seeger sold major works including 88 Picassos that raised $32 million in 1993. Macdonald said hed get rid of collections when he considered them complete, or when works became too famous. Once, when a visiting paramedic recognized a Francis Bacon triptych hanging on a wall, Seeger decided it had to go. Macdonald said Seeger collected for pleasure and for fun Having Nelsons teapot but using it for afternoon tea. If youre having your friends over for Bloody Marys, you have to use Al Capones cocktail shaker. Proceeds from the sale will go to the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies at Princeton University, of which he was benefactor.

ONTHESCENECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEFRIDAY, FEBRUARY28, 2014 C3 Associated PressLOS ANGELES Was it Lee Daniels The Butler, the folk rock bio pic Inside Llewyn Davis, or Woody Allens Blue Jasmine? Well never know which film might have been the 10th bestpicture nominee at this years Oscars. Ahead of Hollywoods biggest night on Sunday, moviegoers may wonder why there have been only nine nominees for best picture the past three years even though the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences rules allow for up to 10. Its all part of a magic, complicated formula intended to choose the years best films, introduce an element of surprise, and minimize voters incentive to vote strategically, according to Rick Rosas, a PricewaterhouseCoopers partner who supervises the count. It allows for fewer nominees in years when support is weak for certain films. Movies that make the cut need a hardcore group of supporters as well as broad acceptance by voters who would rank it their secondor third-best choice of the year. We want voters to be able to fully vote their conscience, Rosas says, not to worry, My vote wont matter for a particular film. Heres how the best-picture nomination process works. But we must also issue a spoiler alert: Stop reading now if you would rather not spoil the fun of the Oscars by trying to figure out one of the most complicated formulas devised by man. Still with us? Good luck. The Academys 6,000 members are sent ballots and asked to rank their five favorite films of the year. Lets say Voter Jane really loved Years a Slave but also thought American Hustle, Philomena, Gravity, and Nebraska deserved runner-up status. Shed mark her ballot ranking Years as No. 1, American Hustle No. 2 and so on. Heres where the ballot counters come in. All the films are ranked according to how many first-place votes they received. Any that get over 9.1 percent of the first-place votes are automatically nominated. That ensures that no more than 10 nominees automatically make the cut. If 10 make it, then the counting is done. If there are fewer than 10, the ballot counters look for socalled surplus votes. Any film that receives votes at least 10 percent above the 9.1-percent automatic nomination threshold will have the surplus votes re-allocated according to the voters second choice or third choice if the second choice is already nominated. Each first-place vote for that popular film is given a lesser weight so the film barely crosses the threshold, and that ballots second-place votes help another film, to a lesser degree. So if Years a Slave received 10 percent of the votes, all of its first-place votes are counted with a weight of roughly 0.9 votes, and all of the second-place votes on the same ballot are redistributed to those films (like American Hustle) with a weight of roughly 0.1 votes. Another check is done to see if any films cross the 9.1 percent threshold. Next, films with less than 1 percent of the first-place votes are eliminated and those ballots are reallocated according to the voters second choice or third choice if the second is already nominated. Finally, all films with more than 5 percent of the votes are automatically nominated. If there are between five and 10, the counting is done. If there are more than 10, the films with the fewest votes are eliminated and their nextchoice votes are redistributed until only 10 remain. If there are less than five, the counters start over and eliminate from the least vote-getters up, while redistributing voters next-choice votes until only five remain. So those secondand thirdplace choices really matter, even if a voters first-place selection is extremely popular. Still with us? The actual balloting for best picture completed this past Tuesday is far less complicated: All voters are again asked to rank the nominees in order of preference this year, that means from 1 to 9. If any film gets 50 percent of the first-place votes plus one, it wins. If not, the films with the fewest first-place are eliminated and those ballots are redistributed according to the voters second-, thirdand fourth-place choices accordingly. Either way, a film needs a lot of first-place votes from passionate backers, and a healthy standing as a secondand thirdplace pick in order to win. But as you can see, it really is an honor just to be nominated. Oscars: How we ended up with 9 best-picture nods?

The prospect of nearly two hours on an airliner, without the complimentary peanuts, is not quite the sensory experience we typically seek in the movies. After federal air marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) morosely guzzles some whiskey in his car outside JFK Airport, he boards the plane headed for Heathrow that hes to protect, that will be the setting from here on out. If youre now hitting the call flight attendant button for help, youll be pleased with the results. Things pick up when down the aisle strolls stewardesses Michelle Dockery and Lupita Nyongo. The plane populates with our cast: Julianne Moore (Marks chatty seatmate), a school teacher (Scoot McNairy), a tough New Yorker (Corey Stroll) and a Muslim doctor (Omar Metwally). Neeson begins getting mysterious text messages from a hijacker on board a snake on the plane, if you will who says someone will die every 20 minutes until $150 million is sent to an off-shore account. The cabin pressure steadily rises. It could be anyone on the plane, a clever little conceit reflective of todays air travel: Everyone is treated like a suspect. In the films best image, Marks has all the passengers hold their hands up. But, as with so many highconcept films, it takes an awful lot of implausibility to keep the story airborne. The manner of the deaths turns suspicion to Marks himself, and even his boss (via phone) believes hes the terrorist. Most incredulously, the plot is propelled by the live coverage of the incident by NY1, that cute little local New York cable channel. Moore breathes life into the claustrophobia, as does Dockery both helpful aids to Marks. Nyongo, the young Oscar-nominated actress of Years a Slave, has barely a line, but sports a cool flattop. But the question is as was with the similarly Europeanbacked, one-word titled thrillers Taken, Taken 2 and Unknown what to make of this unlikely action hero turn for Neeson at 61? Non-Stop is directed by the Spanish-born filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, who also helmed Unknown. Now theyre churning them out. The movies, Non-Stop included, are simple, mostly serviceable genre flicks that are smart enough to dispense with exposition but not witty enough to put three acts together. Neesons presence wounded, intelligent, honorable is much sturdier than these films, which he elevates with ease. Its not an issue of him lowering himself to them, but of these films not raising themselves to Neeson. On Minutes recently, Neeson was himself bemused and rather sheepish about this career turn to movies he acknowledged were straight-tovideo stuff. But his suggestion that he came to Taken and the rest because it allowed him to busy himself after the death of his wife, Natasha Richardson, gives these movies a melancholy poetry: The weary Neeson, kicking butt to keep the demons at bay. Liam Neeson keeps Non-Stop from crashing Associated PressLiam Neeson stars in the new action film Non-Stop. Non-Stop, a Universal Pictures release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for intense sequences of action and violence, some language, sensuality and drug references.

C8FRIDAY, FEBRUARY28, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, for an episode of Northern Exposure, wrote, Life is spontaneous and it is unpredictable; it is magical. Bridge is rarely spontaneous, because it requires thought. But it can occasionally be unpredictable and magical as in this deal. South is in three spades. The contract looks unbeatable. Surely the defenders can take only three clubs and one diamond. Cant declarer get into the dummy in diamonds, take the spade finesse, and collect seven spades and two diamonds (or one diamond and one heart)? Well, strange as it may seem, the defenders can defeat the contract but how? South had a textbook vulnerable threespade opening: a good seven-card suit and 6-10 high-card points. After that, no one had sufficient values to argue. West leads the club king. East overtakes with his ace and returns the club two. This tells West that East started with only two clubs. West wins the second trick with his eight, then cashes the club queen. What should East discard? East must pitch a diamond. Now West leads a fourth club and East throws another diamond. South cannot ruff on the board, because then he would be unable to take the spade finesse. So South ruffs in his hand and plays a diamond to try to get into the dummy for the trump finesse. But West wins with his ace and leads another club, on which East jettisons his last diamond. Declarer trumps and plays a diamond, but East ruffs the trick to defeat the contract. Isnt that magical?

He has an office job that he can accomplish remotely, and by working at home, it saves him a 30-minute commute each way. Those are all great arguments. However, I dont want him working from home. I have to admit that the big reason is simply because I want him to get out of the house more. He rarely leaves unless its with the kids and me. Does that make me a terrible wife? I work a parttime job, also with a 30-minute commute, that allows me to be home in time for the kids school bus. In addition, I take the occasional phone meeting from home, but of course, now I have to take those calls in the bedroom, as my husband is occupying the home office. Ive tried to compromise and suggested he work from home two days a week, but he wants at least four. I feel like we are on top of each other all the time and that he is becoming more of a hermit. This has turned into a major argument. Please Help Dear Please: Its true that for some people, working from home is detrimental. You never get out of your pajamas, and so you avoid other people and rarely leave the house. But that argument may not fly with your husband, who can respond that its his personal choice. The better argument is that you are on top of each other, which leads to annoyance and then resentment and can damage your relationship. Your husband is not going to give up the opportunity to work from home, and so its best if you both reach some accommodation. How about three days a week? Would he vacate the home office when you need it for business phone calls? Is there another space in the house that could be set aside as your personal office? Would you work longer hours if he met the school bus and took care of the kids? Ask your husband to cooperate with you to find a solution you both can live with. Dear Annie: Can you tell me what is the proper etiquette for graduation announcements? A relative is graduating from a military academy and wants to put a note in her announcement as to where she is registered for gifts. Is this appropriate? Aunt Dear Aunt: No. The only time registry information should appear is with baby and wedding shower invitations, where gifts are expected. Otherwise, it is wrong to send out notices inferring that the recipient is obligated for a gift. It would be better if the graduate lets a close friend and/or family member know her preferences and they can transmit that information to anyone who inquires. Dear Annie: I have followed the many outraged responses regarding adult children who have cut elderly parents out of their lives, so let me give another view. My mother is 86 and possessed of her faculties. She can live alone and unassisted. Both of my sisters cut her out of their lives years ago. Why? Because Mom has a cruel mouth and is bigoted, gratuitously insulting, highly opinionated and very vocal about what she thinks of you and everyone else. Mom complained that she has been shunned because of her age, and I told her it is because she is unpleasant and impossible, and that she should get counseling. She responded with a well-chosen two-word obscenity. So Im done. I have tried with great patience to keep Mom in my life, but she is so difficult that I, too, have finally thrown in the towel. I dont need the stress that she creates. Please let your readers know that the behavior of some adult children may be abundantly justified.
