SIDIBE Staff writerINVERNESS Judge Richard Ric Howard tried to send a lasting and symbolic message to a mother accused of starving and visiting egregious cruelty on her then 17-month-old daughter. Friday, Howard sentenced Alyssia Skinner of Hernando to 17 years in prison and 14 years probation. The baby weighed 14 pounds when deputies found her unresponsive, frozen with her extremities bent in place in Skinners home on a cold winters night. According to Howard, photographs of the girl look like deathcamp photos from World War II. You have shocked the conscience of the court with your conduct, Howard told Skinner before sentencing her. He also said even though the plea deal allowed for a maximum of 20 years, he gave her 17 (the babys age) and 14 (the babys weight) so she would live with the memory of those numbers during her time in prison and beyond. Prosecutor Bill Catto described Skinner as a self-centered individual who made sure her own needs were met, but slowly starved her child to within perhaps hours of death, shuttered in a small, cluttered, filthy, dimly lit room in her mobile home with the air conditioner blowing on her. The girl reportedly wallowed in urine and feces for extended periods of time. She deserves every last second of the 20 years, Catto said. Deputies Nick Hesse and Mike Sanchez responded to the home. Hesse recalled in sometimes emotional testimony his encounter with Skinner. Hesse said he found Skinner, 23, with a male friend by a fire outside the house on Valentines Day 2013. He said Skinner denied her own identity and told him she did not have any children. Hesse said Skinner proceeded to enter the house and locked the door. He said loud music was playing from inside the house, all done to mask the cries of the baby.

PATFAHERTY Staff writerThe Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will have a public meeting in Dunnellon on the proposed Sabal Trail natural gas transmission pipeline. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, at Rainbow Springs Country Club, 19330 S.W. 83rd Place, Dunnellon. The commission, known as FERC, announced Tuesday it will prepare an environmental impact statement for the planned Southeast Market Pipelines Project, which includes Sabal Trail and two related pipelines. As proposed, Sabal Trail would be a 474-mile, 36-inch diameter pipeline bringing natural gas from Alabama into Central Florida. Plans call for a connector, referred to Pipeline meeting to address environmental concerns Associated PressWASHINGTON When the weather warms up, so, too, will the U.S. economy. That, at least, is the prevailing view of economists, who shrugged off a government report Friday that the economy was weaker last quarter than first thought. Severe winter weather is probably slowing growth again this quarter. But as the chill and snow fade into memory, long-delayed spending by consumers and businesses could invigorate the economy starting in spring. Weather is having an impact on a lot of the data, said Doug Handler, chief economist at IHS Global Insight. We will likely see a boost from pent-up demand in coming weeks. In the view of most analysts, the snowstorms and extreme cold have exerted a harmful but only temporary effect on the economy. That belief helps explain why Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen signaled this week that the Fed will likely continue reducing its stimulus for the economy throughout 2014. The Commerce Department said Friday that the economy grew at a 2.4 percent annual rate last quarter, in part because consumers didnt spend as much as initially estimated. Initially, Commerce had estimated that the economy expanded at a 3.2 percent rate in the OctoberDecember quarter. One reason the government initially overestimated growth for last quarter was that it didnt fully take account of how much bad weather You have shocked the conscience of the court with your conduct See CRUELTY/ Page A2 Experts: When weather warms, so will economy Doug Handlereconomist at IHS Global Insight.

as the Citrus County Line, of approximately 24 miles of 24-inch pipe from the mainline to Duke Energys proposed natural gas generating plant near Crystal River. The proposed route would tunnel under the Withlacoochee River, U.S. 41, County Road 491 twice and U.S. 19. It would not provide any residential gas service. In addition to the planned pipelines, Sabal Trail would include five compressor stations, including one in Marion County near Dunnellon. The project has a projected in-service date of May 1, 2017. According to FERC, the overall project construction would disturb about 13,670 acres of land. Typical right of way for the pipeline will be 100 to 110 feet wide in uplands and 75 feet wide in wetlands. The project is expected to end up with a 50-foot-wide permanent easement, according to project spokewoman Andrea Grover, and the pipeline will all be underground. Grover and Sabal Trail staff discussed the pipeline at a December open house in Citrus Springs. FERC will address potential environmental impacts and public concerns. It will also evaluate alternatives to the project. Based on its preliminary project review, FERC has identified some potential environmental issues including impacts on water resources, karst terrain, land use and compressor station noise.Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com.A2SATURDAY, MARCH1, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 9-5 & SUNDAY, MARCH 2, 9-4 000H7Y0 Fantastic Entertainment Childrens Play Area!

Sanchez said he shined his flashlight in the face of the child, but her eyes didnt move she was unresponsive. Skinner was immediately arrested and the baby was transported to the hospital. Skinner was charged with aggravated child abuse and torture, and child negligence with and without bodily harm. No bond was allowed. Skinner, who hung her head and kept her eyes shut through most of the court proceeding Friday, was represented by assistant public defenders Ed Spaight and Charity Braddock. Braddock told the court to consider what she called mitigating factors before the sentence was rendered. Braddock presented clinical and forensic psychologist Dr. Tracy Hartig who testified that, among other things, Skinner had and IQ of 78 the upper end of the borderline spectrum. Hartig added that Skinner was severely depressed and had delayed ability to process things. She also said Skinners family life growing up was pretty dysfunctional. Braddock said Skinners history of depression and inability to promptly process information combined to make her the poor mother she became. When investigators finally had the infant examined by medical authorities after a visit for a well-being check on the home, the conclusionwas the child suffered from chronic hypothermia and starvation. The baby also was diagnosed by doctors as having about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of blood on the surface of her brain, which is generally indicative of shaken baby cases. The babys legs couldnt be straightened from a curled, fetal position due to having to gird against the effects of the low temperatures in the room to preserve body heat. According to the report, even while sedated the childs legs could not be straightened because of muscle and tendon damage. Doctors noted that the baby also suffered from muscle and brain atrophy, which means they wasted away because of food deprivation for prolonged periods. The girl is now 2 1/2 years old and on the verge of being adopted, but Kathryn Dentato, the adoption coordinator, said the toddler is significantly delayed. The child cant talk she reportedly has a vocabulary of less than 10 words and can only mimic, said Dentato. She is just now learning to walk, but Dentato added she is otherwise a happy child. Katrina Leturno, of The Centers, said she worries for the childs emotional development later in life because she was deprived of emotional bonding as a baby.

Former American Idol contestant leaves students with messageERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerCitrus County students were given an opportunity to meet a television celebrity this past week. For three days, American Idol contestant Dave Pittman toured schools throughout the county to deliver his anti-bullying message. Pittman competed on season 9 of the popular series. I want all of you to understand that you are all unique and different from one another for a reason, Pittman told the students. Being unique in your own way is what makes the world run. At the age of 9, Pittman was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome. He explained it as a neurological disorder that affects the nervous system with one or more vocal and motor tics. Stress, lack of sleep and diet encourages the tics. School in the fourth grade was one of the most difficult times of my life, he said. Fellow students would make fun of things that I was doing uncontrollably. It extremely shattered my self-esteem and confidence. I couldnt see past it and didnt want to live through it anymore. His pit of darkness almost cost him his life. When they saw how the bullying was affecting Pittman, his parents removed him from school, homeschooled him and entered him in counseling. My parents drilled into my head that I needed to accept myself for who I was and if I did that the bullying would stop, Pittman said. My parents told me that I could let Tourette syndrome negatively affect me for the rest of my life or except it for what it is and be comfortable in my own skin. He enrolled in a different school the following year. There is nothing that someone could tell me now that is going to bother me, because I am who I am, Pittman said. I am Dave Pittman with Tourette syndrome. He is now touring the United States and delivering his anti-bullying message. Parents and teachers can talk about bullying til theyre blue in the face, but when you get someone like Dave who can really relate to the students on a different level, it can really make an impact on their lives, said Sheriff Jeff Dawsy.His message is real and its powerful, which is exactly why we wanted him to come and speak in our schools. Lecanto Middle School Principal Danita Eatman agreed. We know as Panthers that we treat each other with respect and we dont bully, she said. We all have a right to be here and have a safe school environment. The Citrus County Sheriffs Office, Citrus County School District and a local family sponsored Pittmans appearance.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Meagan Simmons of Zephyrhills filed the lawsuit in Hillsborough County Court against Instant Checkmate.com. In her lawsuit, she said all the exposure has disturbed her peace of mind, invaded her privacy and caused her mental anguish. The suit seeks monetary damages and an injunction to prevent further use of her picture. The Tampa Bay Times reported that Simmons image popped up on countless websites where she was branded a hot convict. The photo was taken during a 2010 DUI charge.SorrentoAuthorities say bear attacked central Florida manAuthorities said a central Florida man is recovering after being attacked by a bear in his yard. According to the Lake County Sheriffs Office, Josh Hennessey was treated at a hospital for minor injuries after the attack Thursday night outside his Sorrento mobile home. Hennessey said he was sitting on his porch when he heard rustling in some nearby bushes. He said that when he went to investigate, the bear jumped out and attacked him. He said the bear bit him and tried to drag him into the street. Hennessey was able to fend off the bear. He suffered cuts and scrapes to his elbow, knee and hand. State wildlife officials have set traps for the bear. Neighbors said theyre aware of several bears in the area. From staff and wire reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Medicaid expansion support waning Senate President Gaetz growing cold on idea Associated PressMIAMI One of Medicaid expansions biggest allies in the Florida Legislature is growing cold on the idea, which leaves the possibility of extending insurance to more than 1 million of the states most vulnerable nearly dead in the water before the session begins. Senate President Don Gaetz said he reached out to federal health officials in hopes of negotiating a deal he could take back to House leaders. In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Gaetz proposed a scaled-back expansion instead of adding the entire group at once. Do we have to be the first ones in the minefield? Could we step into it and provide coverage to the people that need it most first and then see how it goes and see if the federal government really does provide funding? Gaetz said. In his talks with Sebelius last fall, he also hoped to carve out an agreement for Medicaid recipients to pay premiums and have an option to customize coverage things House leaders wanted last year. Obamas Affordable Care Act has sought to offer health insurance to more Americans by extending the Medicaid eligibility levels to those making up to 138 percent of the poverty level. She basically said, Its our way or the highway, Gaetz told The Associated Press. Consequently, we really have nothing that we can negotiate with the House or governor about because we dont have a willing federal partner who has expressed a desire to sit down with Florida. Health and Human Services spokesman Fabien Levy said, Our goal in working with Florida has been to be as flexible as possible, within the confines of the law, while at the same time ensuring the benefits of all Medicaid beneficiaries are protected. The feds said they welcome specific suggestions from Gaetz. They said they have given Arkansas, Iowa and Michigan great flexibility in implementing their Medicaid expansion programs. But the law does not allow Sebelius to approve a phased-in expansion. The Obama administrations botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act has also made Medicaid expansion a more difficult sell to Republicans and even Democrats this year. Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who made a dramatic about-face decision when he announced his support for Medicaid expansion last year, also appears to be backpedaling now. Last year, he called expansion the compassionate and common sense choice. But earlier this week on MSNBC, he reframed his position. I said while the federal government is going to pay 100 percent, I wont stand in the way of the Legislature wanting to do more. But the Legislature made the decision ... not to go forward, Scott said. House Speaker Will Weatherford, one of the harshest critics of so-called Obamacare, says the ball is in Sebelius court. I believe they have done a terrible job of giving states flexibility and that they need to come to the state of Florida and offer us a better deal, he told reporters last month. Weatherford dodged when asked if he would support Medicaid expansion if the feds granted more flexibility. It means under the current circumstances we dont think Medicaid expansion is good for Florida, Weatherford said. She basically said, Its our way or the highway.Don GaetzFlorida Senate President on his talks with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleDave Pittman performs Thursday afternoon at the Crystal River Middle School. Pittman appeared on the show American Idol and his new album, Crazy Brave, was recently released. Appy Hour held at Inverness Middle School ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerINVERNESS Technology is here to stay. Thats what Inverness Middle School media specialist Kathryn Locke told colleagues Tuesday during Appy Hour. Appy Hour is an in-service workshop that assists teachers in learning new apps and websites that can be incorporated into the classroom. Dont think you cant do your regular lesson, Locke told the instructors. Just think about where you can poke in these extra pieces into the lesson. She gave each of the teachers a folder with designs, fact sheets and information on technology devices that they can utilize. Learn to use the apps yourself, she said. You want to be fluent in those apps before you introduce them to your students. Locke provided five new apps and websites Pic Collage, Tellagami, Popplet, Writers Hat and Fun Sounds to the teachers. Each educational application offered a diverse learning purpose. For example, Writers Hat provides a verb, noun, subject and adjective to inspire creative writing. Students would take each of these random words and create a story. I see what it does to the kids and they love it, Locke said. I think you will, too. There may be bumps along the road but you just have to go with the flow. She went through each application with the teachers as they followed on their own one-to-one devices. It is OK to start small, she said. No one expects you to receive your iPad one day and then the next day be an expert. Locke has not yet scheduled the next Appy Hour; however, she said her goal is to lead teachers to incorporate 21st-century tools into teaching and learning.Contact Chronicle reporter Eryn Worthington at 352-563-5660, ext. 1334, or eworthington@ chronicleonline.com.

The 56-year-old TV personality talked with The Associated Press about her plans and preparations for hosting her second Academy Awards on Sunday. AP: What did it take for you to say yes again? DeGeneres: It took my agent saying, Yes, you should do it. And I said, OK. Look, its the greatest gig in the world. And its also really, really hard. So, I wasnt going to do it, because Ive done it before. And I thought, I dont need to do that again. And then I realized Im too comfortable and too complacent and I should scare myself and take a chance. So here I am, scaring myself and taking a chance. AP: Describe the fear element of the job. DeGeneres: Its live around the world, to a billion people watching, and every major person who is in the room that has done every major thing. I mean, I know a lot of them. So, it helps a little bit that Im friendly with everybody. But its still scary. Its the energy in the room. Theres a lot of really anxious energy and, so, you kind of pick that up. You can feel all that when you walk out. So Im trying to remain calm. AP: How will you be able to resist dancing along with the nominated songs, especially Pharrell Williams Happy? DeGeneres: I know. I will be dancing like crazy, whether he likes it or not. Im just looking forward to the hat he wears. And I hope that the person (sitting) behind him isnt mad, because he wears a large hat, that Pharrell. AP: Whats your ultimate goal for Oscar night? DeGeneres: I hope that everyone had fun. I hope that it didnt seem like its as long as its going to be. This year its six hours. Did you know that? Six hours. ... Heres what I hope: I hope when I say, Goodnight, I hope people go: One more hour! One more hour! And they start chanting and make me stay. Thats what I hope.

would dampen spending on long-lasting goods such as autos. Last quarters increase in the gross domestic product the economys total output of goods and services was the weakest showing since the first quarter of the past year. And it was down sharply from a 4.1 percent growth rate in the third quarter. Economists had long expected growth to slow in the final quarter of 2013 and the first quarter this year compared with the third quarter of last year. In part, thats because GDP growth during last years third quarter was fueled by an unsustainable buildup in company stockpiles that would need to be worked down. But analysts said the slowdown has been magnified by a succession of winter storms that have disrupted economic activity from forcing temporary closings of Macys and other department stores to depressing sales at McDonalds restaurants. Home Depot Inc. said it lost $100 million from bad weather in January. The damage from consumer spending has been especially acute because it accounts for about 70 percent of economic activity. Economists foresee further spending weakness in the first three months of this year largely because of the weather. Due to Mother Nature, quarter one is not going to be anything worth writing home about, Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, wrote in a research note. The rebound ... and all of that pentup demand wont show up until the second quarter. Lee predicted a tepid economic growth rate of around 1.7 percent this quarter. A separate report Friday also provided hope for a stronger economy in coming months. The University of Michigans monthly index of consumer sentiment showed that while bad weather kept consumers away from retail outlets, it hasnt shaken their confidence. The index posted a reading of 81.6 in February, up slightly from Januarys 81.2. The survey found that the cold weather had the biggest effect among consumers over age 65, who tended to worry about higher utility bills. By contrast, consumers under age 35 felt better able to offset higher utility payments with income gains. The Michigan survey found that while the weather had made trips to the store more difficult, many purchases had been postponed rather than canceled. Consumers have displayed remarkable resilience in the face of the polar vortex as well as higher utility bills, said University of Michigan director of surveys Richard Curtin. In particular, analysts think auto purchases that were put off last year will recover as warmer weather draw buyers back to showrooms. One area of encouragement in Fridays report was the governments estimate of business investment. It was revised up to an annual rate of 7.3 percent the best quarterly showing in a year and sharply higher than the initial 3.8 percent estimated rate. For all of 2013, the economy grew at a lackluster 1.9 percent. Analysts think growth will rebound in 2014 to as high as 3 percent. Growth was held back last year by higher federal taxes and government spending cuts enacted to combat budget deficits. Economists estimate that the squeeze from the government subtracted about 1.5 percentage points from growth last year. If growth does reach 3 percent this year, it would be the strongest performance since the recession ended almost five years ago. Handler said he looked for growth to improve to an annual rate above 3 percent in the second half of this year as the economy gains traction. After enduring the deepest downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, the economy has struggled to accelerate. The weak growth has made it difficult for people who lost jobs during the downturn to find work. Over the past four years, economic growth has averaged an anemic 2.2 percent. The revisions in fourthquarter growth resulted from updated data that the Commerce Department didnt have when it made its first estimate a month ago. Commerce will make one final estimate of fourth-quarter GDP growth next month.

During the search, Viggiano found a purse in the passenger seat with a plastic baggie containing marijuana, as well as prescription pills. Kristen reportedly admitted to ownership of the drugs. What wasnt yet known is that investigators would identify the duo as suspects in a string of car break-ins and a home burglary. A description of a man whose image was captured using a stolen credit card at an automated teller machine matched Steven. Investigators also reportedly found a black knapsack in the car, reported to have been stolen from a vehicle two days earlier. In Stevens wallet they found $3,100 31 $100 bills which was reported to be in the knapsack. The owner of the knapsack said the money was from selling a car. When investigators spoke to Kristen about burglaries she admitted that she was present when two car burglaries were committed by Steven. Purses were stolen during those burglaries and the victims descriptions of their stolen items matched items discovered during the DiGiglio stop. Steven, however, denied breaking into vehicles, but said he found debit/credit cards and used them multiple times at various ATM machines. The vehicle search also revealed 103 assorted collectible sports cards, which were later identified by a man as his and that they have been missing since his home was burgled. Authorities reportedly even found a library card belonging to someone else in the DiGiglio vehicle. The couple was arrested and transported to the Citrus County Detention Facility.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B. Sidibe at 352564-2925 or asidibe@ chronicleonline.com.

Associated PressSAN FRANCISCO Jim Lange, the first host of the popular game show The Dating Game, has died at his home in Mill Valley, Calif. He was 81. He died Tuesday morning after suffering a heart attack, his wife Nancy said. Though Lange had a successful career in radio, he is best known for his television role on ABCs The Dating Game, which debuted in 1965 and on which he appeared for more than a decade, charming audiences with his mellifluous voice and wide, easygoing grin. He also played host to many celebrity guests. Michael Jackson, Steve Martin and Arnold Schwarzenegger, among others, appeared as contestants. Even a pre-Charlies Angels Farrah Fawcett appeared on the program, introduced as an accomplished artist and sculptress with a dream to open her own gallery. The shows format: a young man or woman questions three members of the opposite sex, hidden from view, to determine which one would be the best date. The questions were designed by the shows writers to elicit sexy answers. Lange was born on Aug. 15, 1932, in St. Paul, Minn., where at 15 he discovered a passion for local radio after winning an audition at a local station. He hosted that show for two years before attending the University of Minnesota and doing a three-year stint in the Marines, according to the Bay Area Radio Museum. His big break on network TV came in 1962 when he was made an announcer and sidekick on The Tennessee Ernie Ford Show. Lange is survived by a sister, five children, two stepchildren and four grandchildren. Associated PressHost Jim Lange, left, congratulates Connie and Steve Rutenbar on Jan. 16, 1986, after they won $1 million on the TV show The $1,000,000 Chance of a Lifetime.

Associated PressCHICAGO Shannon Frauenholtz has had it with winter. Barely able to stomach the television news with its images of snowbound cars, she heads to the tanning salon, closes her eyes and imagines shes back in Mexico, where shes already vacationed once this winter. Shes toyed with the idea of joining her mother in Hawaii or just driving to an indoor water park, figuring that while the palm trees might be plastic and the beach smells of chlorine, at least its warm. I dont need a vacation. I dont need the relaxation, said Frauenholtz, of New Ulm, Minn. I just need the heat. All over the Midwest and the East Coast, travel agents are being inundated with a simple request: Get me out of here. And travelers fortunate enough to have escaped are begging hotels to let them stay a little longer. Because they know how miserable people are, warm-weather destinations in California, Arizona and Florida have stepped up their enticements. Trains and billboards in Chicago have been plastered with ads showing beaches and pool scenes. In Philadelphia, one promoter put fiberglass mannequins dressed in flip flops, tank tops and shorts atop taxis with their arms outstretched a whimsical inducement to fly south. Reminding Americans that there are places where nose hairs dont freeze is an annual tradition. But those in the business of luring visitors to warmer climates say its rarely been easier than this season, when polar vortex has entered the everyday vocabulary and Chi-beria has become popular enough to emblazon on T-shirts. This year we wanted to have a little more fun with it, said Susannah Costello, of Visit Florida, the states official marketing organization, which came up with the mannequin idea. The ads showing children and bikiniclad women making snow angels in warm beach sand are more plentiful than in years past, acknowledged Erin Duggan, of Visit Sarasota County. We did that because we knew winter was shaping up to be brutal, she said. Not that people needed much reminding of the harsh conditions. The winter is so bad, there is a certain amount of desperation, said Alex Kutin, an Indianapolis travel agent. They come and say, Ive got to get somewhere warm. Where do you recommend? Another assault of bad weather was expected over the weekend, with forecasts for at least 6 inches of snow through Monday in a 1,500-mile stretch from Kansas to the East Coast. Parts of the Northeast could see a foot or more. Just how many more people are trying to get out of the ice box is unclear. Airlines do not release any route-specific data. And although the government tracks some of it, figures will not be released for six months. But other travel statistics suggest there has been a jump. The jetsetter.com travel site found that the number of hotel bookings in warm-weather spots made by customers from Illinois, New York, Massachusetts and the Washington, D.C., area rose 7percent in January compared with last year. Visit Florida said hotel bookings in the state rose 3percent in the four weeks ending Feb.15 compared with the same period last year. And the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association reports that RV parks from Florida to Arizona report are packed, with one Arizona park expecting a 6percent increase in revenue over last year.BUSINESSCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESATURDAY, MARCH1, 2014 A7 Money&MarketsAclick of the wrist gets you more at www.chronicleonline.com 1,600 1,650 1,700 1,750 1,800 1,850 1,900 F SONDJ 1,800 1,840 1,880 S&P 500Close: 1,859.45 Change: 5.16 (0.3%) 10 DAYS 14,500 15,000 15,500 16,000 16,500 17,000 F SONDJ 15,960 16,180 16,400 Dow Jones industrialsClose: 16,321.71 Change: 49.06 (0.3%) 10 DAYSAdvanced1859 Declined1235 New Highs230 New Lows19 Vol. (in mil.)3,793 Pvs. Volume3,448 2,435 1,993 1182 1409 211 16 NYSE NASD DOW 16398.9516226.0916321.71+49.06+0.30%-1.54% DOW Trans.7382.847297.647348.37+32.08+0.44%-0.71% DOW Util.520.58515.95518.77+2.82+0.55%+5.75% NYSE Comp.10471.6310373.3110425.85+28.04+0.27%+0.25% NASDAQ4342.594275.614308.12-10.81-0.25%+3.15% S&P5001867.921847.671859.45+5.16+0.28%+0.60% S&P4001382.571368.731375.33+3.35+0.24%+2.44% Wilshire 500020044.3919824.6619946.84+29.62+0.15%+1.22% Russell 20001193.501177.201183.03-4.91-0.41%+1.67% HIGH LOW CLOSE CHG. %CHG.

Bloomberg reported, citing anonymous sources, that the discounter approached several companies about selling itself. The auction house had to take back a diamond that sold for $83 million after the buyer defaulted on paying for it. The home decor company cut its fiscal fourth-quarter and full-year forecasts again, saying bad weather kept customers at home. Winter storms forced the airline to cancel 22,500 flights in January and February, hurting its revenue for the first quarter. Shares of the electronics retailer continued to rise a day after posting a fourth-quarter profit that topped Wall Street expectations.

The Standard & Poors 500 index rose 4.3 percent in February, the biggest gain since October 2013, helped by strong corporate earnings and a Federal Reserve that seems to have Wall Streets back at every turn. But the rise in February must be taken in the context that investors spent the month making up the ground they lost in January. February looked a lot like January, just moving in the opposite direction, said Scott Clemons, chief investment strategist with Brown Brothers Harriman Wealth Management. Investors are also now staring at a stock market, while numbers-wise basically where it was on Jan.1, that is a lot more defensive than it was two months ago. Utilities and health care stocks two traditional safe places for investors because of their low volatility and higher-thanaverage dividends are the biggest gainers so far this year. Utilities are up 5.7percent in 2014 and health care is up 6.6percent. Investor caution was also evident in the bond market, which has done reasonably well in the last two months. The yield on the benchmark U.S. 10year Treasury note has fallen from 2.97percent to 2.65percent in the last two months as investors returned to the relative safety of government debt. The Barclays U.S. Aggregate bond index, which tracks a broad mix of corporate and government bonds, is up 1.6 percent this year. The sentiment now is, bonds may not be as bad as I originally thought, said Michael Fredericks, a portfolio manager of the Multi-Asset Income Fund at Blackrock. On Friday, the S&P 500 rose 5.16points, or 0.3percent, to 1,859.45. It was the second all-time closing high for the S&P 500 in a row. The S&P 500 is now up 0.6percent for the year. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 49.06points, or 0.3percent, to 16,321.76. The Nasdaq composite lost 10.81points, or 0.3percent, to 4,308.12.

OPINION Page A8SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 2014 Cost of development plan prohibitiveRecently the consultant provided by Duke Energy laid forth a plan for economic development for Citrus County. One of the many merits of the proposed plan suggested receiving more input from the general public. Public input has been provided over the past few years through vision checks, focus groups and a stakeholders committee. The majority of their findings paralleled that of the consultants recommendations. I participated in some of these efforts and made presentations to various commissioners and EDC leaders. The results were always the same: thank you for your time and effort; then they revert back to the same concepts that have failed for decades. It is interesting to note that the commissioner that is the conduit with the EDC was the same commissioner who had public input removed prior to voting on all issues before the board. To be kind, it can be said that the EDC has shown less than mediocre results since its inception. This is surprising because its board of directors is comprised of some very successful and intelligent people. The lack of success can be directly attributed to a lack of leadership and the influence of those promoting their personal agendas. This is the same EDC that was within one vote from the BOCC of losing its funding a few short years ago. Sustaining small businesses which is the foundation of an areas economic engine should be the priority during times of recession. The former director of the EDC was asked what his plan was to assist the businesses that would be closed due to the opening of the new Walmart on U.S. 19 at a Citrus County Council meeting. He stated he was working on a plan. At a subsequent meeting a few months later, he was asked to reveal his plan. He had no answer. When further pressed, he said that those small-business owners that lost their jobs due to the opening of Walmart could find jobs at Walmart. This is a prime example of the leadership of the EDC and what has fueled its lack of success for over a decade. The consultant put a price tag on what is would cost the Citrus County taxpayers to achieve economic success. That price is $2.35 million. The EDC has not been a good steward of the funds allocated to it in the past. Giving it any additional funding at the taxpayers expense would be a travesty. Perhaps at some future date, under new leadership, and a board with fresh faces that can present a track record of success, future funding could be considered. Every county in the United States has an EDC is some way, shape or form. Competing with them in an effort to create something we are not is not in the best interests of Citrus Countys short and long-term growth. First we must identify who we are. Success can be achieved by aggressively promoting our current assets and unique style of living at a far less cost than $2.35 million.Bernie Leven Citrus SpringsWhite House Boys-Dozier abuses and beatingsI suppose I look at things a little differently than do most people. What I am speaking of is the newspaper statement made by Bob Massingill which reads as follows: I read this thing and I had to kind of chuckle because I thought to myself if anybody sat and thought about what 20 licks would do to you, then 40 licks and then 60 licks, youd be in a wheelchair for the rest of your life, Massingill said. I was there a long time and I went down there three times. The whole time I was there, I never knew anybody who got over five or six licks. Ill tell you the truth. I mean this thing has really been blown out of proportion. If one looks at what he is really saying, the truth can be clearly seen. We know from the stories of more than 400 other men that anywhere from 10 to 150 licks were administered depending on the severity of the offense. We know that to be true. So what we do not know is how severe were each of the blows of the leather strap. His statement reveals the answer to that question. He states that the boys only got five licks with the strap. So, if that be the case just how severe were the five blows? They must have been so severe (according to him) that 10, 15 or 20 blows would have put a boy in a wheelchair for life. Now we know just how bad the beatings actually were just by believing a portion of Bobs own statement. Roger Dean Kiser, author Brunswick, Ga. Editors note: The following is a statement from Sen. Charles Dean, R-Inverness, concerning recent comments about nuclear cost recovery and how it relates to actions by the Legislature and the Florida Public Service Commission.Recently, I have been asked several times why I have not filed a bill to repeal the statute related to the nuclear cost recovery fee. Let me be clear, I support the repeal of this statute; in fact, I filed a briefing with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy to have this statute deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of Florida. However, in an effort last year which would have placed a repeal date of Oct. 1, 2016, on this fee, sponsored by Sen. John Legg, we learned repeal without the Public Service Commission ending the cost recovery on its own accord would result in higher rates for ratepayers. This would not have been fair treatment to ratepayers already being stuck with the bill for these plants, which may never be completed. This is why, last year, the Florida Senate, in a bill which was signed into law by the governor, made several changes to how the Public Service Commission goes about collecting and authorizing this pre-construction cost. While this was not a complete repeal, it is a step in the right direction by placing new standards on this fee. This also protected ratepayers who could be on the hook for even higher rates on plants which are already in the permitting stages. This is not a simple issue. With the Supreme Court upholding the law and the negative impacts identified last year, the proper route for addressing this fee is not to immediately repeal the fee outright, but instead to work on changes to the fee, limit its use, and ensure ratepayers are not more financially impacted than they would have been with the fee. As I said before, leaving our ratepayers even more on the hook is simply not the right thing to do. I remain strongly against the nuclear cost recovery fee, as demonstrated by my brief with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy. I look forward to continuing to work on this as we move ahead.State Sen. Charlie Dean represents District 5, which includes parts or all of 10 Florida counties.

The TDC currently levies a 3 percent bed tax at hotels, campgrounds and vacation rentals and uses the funds to promote additional tourism for the county. Gene McGee, a TDC board member, suggested another 1 percent could be used to develop the much needed visitor center. Three Sisters Springs is a wildlife refuge owned by the City of Crystal River and operated via a contract with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. Because federal funds are hard to come by these days, planned improvements at the refuge have not taken place and the property is only open during occasional special events. Three Sisters Springs has received incredible international attention since the National Geographic magazine highlighted the successful public/private effort to preserve the property. It is a shame that the only way tourists can experience Three Sisters is by watercraft. McGees suggestion is worthy of consideration. Three Sisters Springs and the Homosassa Springs State Park are currently the two main draws to tourists visiting this part of Florida. While the Homosassa experience is outstanding, the lack of progress at Three Sisters has been nothing short of a lost opportunity. The city of Crystal River and the wildlife service are currently holding public meetings to try and speed up public access. A TDC partnership to build a visitor center with offsite parking could be a game-changer that creates some needed momentum for the project. It is true that before the TDC increases the bed tax, it must first figure out a more efficient want to collect taxes from all of the campgrounds and vacation homes in the county. Some have estimated that the TDC is leaving $200,000 in uncollected taxes on the table because Tallahassee is in charge of collections. Citrus County needs to figure out how to collect the bed tax on a local level and make sure all of the funds are secured. An increase in the bed tax for this specific purpose would be permitted under the existing law. This is the ultimate user tax that is charged to tourists who visit our area and make use of infrastructure paid for by local taxpayers. Areas in Florida that already have a greater dependence on tourism such as Clearwater and Daytona Beach have much higher tourism taxes. The higher tax rate does not deter tourists from visiting those areas, but it does provide local government the money it needs to keep facilities used by tourists in good condition. In Citrus County, one of the biggest deterrents to longer stays by tourists is that some say there is not enough to do. Helping Three Sisters Springs stay open year-round would be a giant step forward in dealing with that problem. If an increase in the tourist tax could help expand facilities at another tourism destination, we think it makes good sense to explore the opportunity.

In Saturdays paper, Harry Cooper makes it clear that we, unlike the citizens of every other developed nation in the world, are not entitled to health care. Also, he reminds us that the government can not give anything to anyone which it does not take from someone else. Moreover, Obamacare is a singlepayer system. And contrary to what we have been told, people in Germany and Austria do not like their systems. Im reasonably sure that he believes what he wrote, but even more sure that he is wrong on all counts. His handful of German and Austrian friends not withstanding, no nation has ever to my knowledge voted to abandon universal health coverage. Not even Maggie Thatcher would touch it with a 10-foot pole. She got away with destroying the British coal industry to destroy the coal miners union. But had she opted out of National Health Service, she would probably have been lynched. What we deserve from the state depends on the laws we have. Harry likes the VA, though some friends of mine who are veterans refuse to rely on GS-9 doctors, preferring the higher paid ones in the private sector. And if you look at the income and outgo of government in, for example, the Roosevelt (Franklin, not Teddy) administration, you would find that government spending increased more than taxes, and GDP more than either. Obamacare, incidentally, is not a singlepayer system. It is based on a study by a right wing think tank intended to offer protection to practically all citizens and probably legal aliens without drastically reducing the income of doctors, lawyers and corporate chiefs. All civilized nations have taken steps to ensure their citizens do not unnecessarily die early and/or go bankrupt due to medical costs. But while Great Britain has a National Health Service, France has a central data base accessed by a Carte Sante (Health Card) and covered by not-for-profit insurance with subsidies for those who cannot afford it. The consistent feature is that everyone is covered and to some extent costs are controlled. Our system, which might best be termed Robber Baron Health Care, is the most expensive in terms of both percentage of GDP (17.9 percent) and absolutely. The figure for Great Britain is 9.3 percent, France a whopping 11.6 percent and Switzerland 10 percent. In terms of results, there are 45 countries with longer life expectancy than the U.S. They include such advanced places as Costa Rica, Slovenia and Cuba. On the other hand, there is no country which has richer doctors, lawyers or corporate chiefs than we do. Thus, our system may be said to be optimized for profit maximization, not for any useful purpose. And any effort made to improve coverage and reduce costs will be met with the full fury of those interests. They are doubly powerful, since five shysters in drag on the Supreme Court have amended the Constitution to ensure the right of corporations to buy all the politicians they can afford. For Republicans, making the rich, richer, and the poor, poorer, is an end in itself. And those who arent smart and energetic enough to obtain a $44 million bonus for destroying a nuclear power plant, richly deserve to go bankrupt dying a horrible death. Pat Condray Ozello
Associated PressWASHINGTON Bill Clintons aides revealed concern early in his presidency about the health care overhaul effort led by his wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and later about what they saw as a need to soften her image, according to documents released Friday. Mrs. Clinton now is a potential 2016 presidential contender The National Archives released about 4,000 pages of previously confidential documents involving the former presidents administration, providing a glimpse into the ultimately unsuccessful struggles of his health care task force, led by the first lady, and other Clinton priorities such as the U.S. economy and a major trade agreement. Hillary Clintons potential White House campaign has increased interest in Clinton Presidential Library documents from her husbands administration during the 1990s and her own decades in public service. A former secretary of state and New York senator, Mrs. Clinton is the leading Democratic contender to succeed President Barack Obama, though she has not said whether she will run. Fridays documents included memos related to the former presidents illfated health care reform proposal in 1993 and 1994, a plan that failed to win support in Congress and turned into a rallying cry for Republicans in the 1994 midterm elections. As first lady, Hillary Clinton chaired her husbands health care task force, largely meeting in secret to develop a plan to provide universal health insurance coverage. White House aides expressed initial optimism about her ability to help craft and enact a major overhaul of U.S. health care. The first ladys months of meetings with the Congress has produced a significant amount of trust and confidence by the members in her ability to help produce a viable health reform legislative product with the president, said an undated and unsigned document, which was cataloged with others from April 1993. The document urged quick action, warning that enthusiasm for health reform will fade over time. But the documents also showed the growing concerns among Clintons fellow Democrats in Congress. Lawmakers, it said, going to their home districts for the August break are petrified about having difficult health care reform issues/questions thrown at them. Air on ice Avalanche levels Montana houseMISSOULA, Mont. An avalanche roared into a residential neighborhood in the western Montana city of Missoula on Friday, destroying a house and leaving an elderly woman missing, but rescuers found an elderly man and an 8year-old boy alive, police said. The survivors were rushed to a hospital, police Sgt. Travis Welsh said. Their conditions werent immediately known, but the man was talking with rescuers, Welsh said. The man and woman, whose relationship wasnt immediately known, lived in the house destroyed by the avalanche that struck at about 4 p.m. Police werent sure if the boy lived there. Neighbors and the first responders to reach the scene dug frantically through the snow and debris, the Missoulian reported.Alcoa eagles welcome new egg RIVERDALE, Iowa Two of the worlds mostwatched eagles have welcomed a second egg to their nest. The Quad-City Times reported viewers of the Alcoa EagleCam on Thursday spotted another egg in the nest of the eagles, dubbed Liberty and Justice. The nest is on the property of the Alcoa Davenport Works in Riverdale. For the past three years, people have been able to watch online streaming video of the eagles. Company spokesman John Riches said Friday that Liberty laid the second egg about 5:30p.m. Thursday. Riches said the last egg usually comes within a week of the first egg, so that would mean any additional arrivals would come by Sunday. The birds can be seen at alcoa.com/eaglecam.

Russians in Crimea, UkraineSEVASTOPOL, Ukraine Armed men described as Russian troops took control of key airports in Crimea on Friday and Russian transport planes flew into the strategic region, Ukrainian officials said, an ominous sign of the Kremlins iron hand in Ukraine. President Barack Obama bluntly warned Moscow there will be costs if it intervenes militarily. The sudden arrival of men in military uniforms patrolling key strategic facilities prompted Ukraine to accuse Russia of a military invasion and occupation a claim that brought an alarming new dimension to the crisis. In a hastily arranged statement delivered from the White House, Obama called on Russia to respect the independence and territory of Ukraine and not try to take advantage of its neighbor, which is undergoing political upheaval. Any violation of Ukraines sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing, Obama said.Myanmar expels doctors groupYANGON, Myanmar Doctors Without Borders said Friday it has been expelled from Myanmar and that tens of thousands of lives are at risk. The decision came after the humanitarian group reported it treated nearly two dozen Rohingya Muslim victims of communal violence in Rakhine state, which the government has denied. The humanitarian group said it was deeply shocked by Myanmars decision to expel it after two decades of work in the country. The United States said it was very concerned and urged the government to continue to provide unfettered access for humanitarian agencies. As Myanmars main provider of HIV drugs, supplying treatment to 30,000 people, the group described the impact as devastating.

Parched for rain Associated PressA pedestrian blocks the heavy winds with her umbrella Friday in Los Angeles. The first wave of a powerful Pacific storm spread rain and snow early Friday through much of California, where communities endangered by a wildfire just weeks ago now faced the threat of mud and debris flows. Winter storm lashes California, but not a drought buster Associated PressLOS ANGELES California was lashed Friday by heavy rains that the parched state so desperately needs, though with the soaking came traffic snarls, power outages and the threat of mudslides. Even with rainfall totals exceeding six inches in some places by midday, the powerful Pacific storm did not put a major dent in a drought that is among the worst in recent California history. The first waves of the storm drenched foothill communities east of Los Angeles that just weeks ago were menaced by a wildfire and now faced the threat of mudslides. Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for about 1,200 homes in the area. Small debris flows covered one street in Glendora, but no property damage occurred, police said. Forecasters expected the storm to last through today in California before trundling east into similarly rain-starved neighboring states. Phoenix was expecting its first noticeable precipitation in two months. The threat of mudslides will last at least through tonight. Tornadoes and water spouts were possible as the next wave of the storm came ashore Friday. Rainfall totals in parts of California were impressive, especially in areas that typically dont receive much, but not nearly enough to offer long-term relief from a long-running drought. Downtown Los Angeles received two inches before a midday reprieve, but remained about 12 inches below normal rainfall totals for the season. We need several large storms and we just dont see that on the horizon. This is a rogue storm, National Weather Service meteorologist Eric Boldt said. We will dry out next week. But for this rain, the service said, this would have been the driest December through February on record in Los Angeles. Rain also fell in the central coast counties, the San Francisco Bay region and the Central Valley. Winter storm warnings were in effect in the Sierra Nevada for heavy snowfall. The storm brought familiar problems. Numerous traffic accidents occurred on slick or flooded roads across California, including one about 60 miles east of Los Angeles involving a big rig whose driver died after falling from a freeway overpass. Two men and their dogs were rescued from the swift waters of the Los Angeles River. Hundreds of miles north in San Jose, firefighters also pulled a man from swollen Coyote Creek near a homeless encampment. He was treated for hypothermia. Clinton documents released Associated PressWASHINGTON Tea partyers insist theyre not to blame for Republican election losses in congressional and presidential elections, faulting the GOP establishment for showing little fight. This election year, the establishment is fighting against the tea party insurgents challenging incumbents who the Republican Party is convinced stand a far better chance in November. The internal GOP showdown will be decided in primaries starting Tuesday in Texas and stretching through the year in Kentucky, Mississippi, Kansas, Michigan and elsewhere. Burned by losses in winnable Senate races in 2010 and 2012, establishment Republicans are aggressively challenging this years class of tea partybacked candidates. Tea partyers, dismissing reports of their demise, contend theyre ready to use their unbending political force against both President Barack Obama and the Republican establishment. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a superstar to the movement and a potential 2016 presidential candidate, said hes hopeful and optimistic that were going to turn this country around. Hundreds gathered Thursday as the Tea Party Patriots, one of the major grassroots groups, marked the movements fifth anniversary at a Washington celebration that toasted everything anti-Washington. They stood and applauded wildly for Cruz, who precipitated the 16-day partial government shutdown last fall with his opposition to Obamas health care law, and warmly received two other tea party senators, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah. Tea partyers, who helped Republicans capture control of the House in 2010, made clear they dont like what the GOP establishment has done to their conservative agenda of limited government, free-market policies and what they consider fidelity to the Constitution. They signaled they will work hard to elect their uncompromising candidates no matter what the establishment does. Republicans blame the tea party for losses in winnable races in 2010 and 2012 in Colorado, Nevada, Delaware and Indiana that many believe cost the GOP a Senate majority. As evidence of the partys tough tactics, a political deal was engineered in Colorado. Tea partyaffiliated Ken Buck, who lost a close Senate race in 2010, stepped aside to run for the House while more mainstream Rep. Cory Gardner launched a Senate bid. As Rob Collins, executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said this week: Were not anticonservative. Were just anti-people-who-cant-win. Tea partyers point to mainstream Republicans who lost Senate seats in Wisconsin, Virginia, North Dakota and Montana in 2012, as well as to two defeated presidential candidates John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012. Addressing the tea party event, Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Kan., was interrupted by the crowd, which stood and cheered when he said, Its high time we retire (House Speaker) John Boehner. When the applause died down, Huelskamp completed his sentence that it was high time to retire John Boehners biggest excuse that we only control onethird of the government.

Panthers junior left-hander Zach Bonick struggled with his command in that decisive first frame, as he walked four batters and hit another while watching a pair of Canes score on wild pitches. With strong tailing movement on his fastball, Bonick (5 1/3 innings, four strikeouts, five hits and five walks allowed) recovered nicely, holding Citrus (4-3 overall) hitless until the fourth, when Atkinson smashed a grounder near first base. But the opening-inning damage was too much to overcome, and earned him the loss. You cant spot a team three runs at home, without them even getting a hit, LHS coach Dave Logue said. Citrus has guys that are going to throw strikes and battle you, so youre going to have to earn everything. You can see what happened when (Bonick) really started throwing. Without spotting them anything, its a 2-1 game. Its a tough pill to swallow, but its a long season. After boarding on a single to left and then stealing second, Panthers junior Caleb Southey cut his teams deficit to 3-1 in the fifth on an RBI grounder to short by junior Kyler Speagle.

The Hurricanes rallied with five runs in the bottom of the seventh inning to stun Lecanto for an 8-7 victory. Canes softball plates five runs in seventh to snare 8-7 win over Panthers C.J. RISAK CorrespondentINVERNESS Lecanto softball coach Robert Dupler knew before the first pitch was tossed this would be a close game. But with six innings in the book, it looked like he would be wrong. He wasnt. Powered by seventh-inning doubles from Rachel Martin, Jordan Josey and Emaly Ferreira, Citrus overcame a 7-3 deficit, scoring five times in the final inning to edge Lecanto 8-7 in the first District 5A-6 game of the season for both teams. Citrus improved to 6-1 overall, 1-0 in district play; Lecanto is 1-2 overall, 0-1 in 5A-6. It seemed the Panthers had control of this game from the first inning, an assumption Dupler didnt embrace. But things fell apart for Lecanto in the seventh. Before we got on the bus I would have told you this would be a one-run game, Dupler said. I take my hat off to Citrus, they deserved it, they played harder than we did. But I would disagree that we were ever in control of this game. In the end, they played seven innings and we played six and one-third. That certainly was accurate. The first batter in the seventh for the Hurricanes, Erica Corlew, hit a high pop fly between the pitchers mound and the third-base line that any of four Lecanto players could have caught. No one did, however, and the ball landed safely. After Chelby Lawler struck out, the Citrus fireworks began. With Amanda Myers on the mound in relief of Danielle Yant, Martin lined a double to left field that scored the first run of the inning. Cameron Trehy followed with a single and, with runners on first and third, a wild pitch scored a second run to make it 7-5. Yant reentered the game, but her fortunes were no better. A Josey double down the left-field line delivered two more Citrus runs to tie it at 7-all, and Ferreira then came through with her game-winning, runscoring double. We didnt get any timely hits until the seventh, Citrus coach Larry Bishop said. But thats been our motto this year we want to play to the finish. All mottoes and predictions aside, the game did not start well or typically for Citrus. The first three Lecanto batters in the first inning reached base on errors and, combined with a walk, the Panthers had a 1-0 lead. I dont know what it was, Bishop said. But that first inning took us out of our game. Still, as poorly as we played in the Tigers baseball nips CR STEVEMCGUNNIGLE CorrespondentCRYSTAL RIVER A strong start became a distant memory, as Crystal River watched an early 2-0 lead disappear and become an eventual 7-3 loss to visiting Dunnellon on Friday night from Mike Hampton Field in a District 5A-6 matchup. Jordan Humphreys blasted a two-out, two-run double off the left field wall in the first inning, scoring Casey Purnell and Mason Pateracki, who both singled. Humphreys also made the start from the mound for Crystal River (4-4 overall, 0-2 in district play), but struggled through the second and third innings before being relieved. Ryan Mills solo home run pulled down the left field line made it 2-1 in the second inning, and an unearned run tied it up for the Tigers (3-2, 1-0) in the third, as Kane Parks reached on an error and later came around to score on a bloop single to right field by Matthew Livermore. An inning earlier, Crystal River was unable to take advantage of a Dunnellon miscue, as Tyler Volland led off the bottom of the second by reaching base on a throwing error. But a hitand-run was put on, Derrick Rogers swung through the pitch, and Volland was easily erased at second base. Dunnellon scored in five of the last six innings, including three insurance runs in the top of the seventh to secure the win. Offensively I think we could have done things differently early in the game, to keep the momentum, but we got a little too aggressive, Pirates head coach Bobby Stack said. And Jordan on the mound didnt really have his best stuff for this start. I just dont think he was ready physically. See CR/ Page B3 See STUNNING/ Page B3 ...

Associated PressAVONDALE, Ariz. A few drivers, like Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano, raced onto the track to get in their qualifying sessions. Others waited, some nearly 10 minutes before heading out for the first time. There were long stretches with almost no activity followed by mad scrambles to get runs in before time ran out. Car raced past each other at close to a 100 mph difference. No doubt, this first round of NASCARs new knockout qualifying was a little strange and will take some getting used to. Brad Keselowski earned the first Sprint Cup pole under NASCARs new format, edging Joey Logano with a track-record top speed of 139.384 mph at Phoenix International Raceway on Friday. Its a lot more nerveracking, Keselowski said. Usually a pretty good rule of thumb is that If its more nerve-racking for the drivers, its a lot more fun for our fans and partners and all those things, and thats a good thing. I more interested in feedback from our fans to see if they liked it. Keselowski was one of the first drivers to go out in the first session and finished behind Logano. He trumped his teammate in the shorter, second session to earn his fourth career pole and a spot on the front row for Sundays 312-mile race. Jamie McMurray qualified third, defending Sprint Cup champion was fourth and Daytona 500 champion Dale Earnhardt Jr. will start fifth next to Greg Biffle. NASCAR made numerous changes for this season, including a tweaked qualifying process in an effort to liven up what had become a monotonous part of race weekend. Instead of going out one at a time, the entire field gets a 30-minute session to post their fastest lap, with the top 12 moving on to a 10-minute second round. On bigger tracks, the qualifying will have three sessions, with the field cut to 24 then 12. NASCAR got a glimpse of the new system at Daytona last week, but it didnt last long; the Nationwide series was able to get in one round before rain washed out the rest of the qualifying and for the Truck Series. The Daytona 500 didnt use the new qualifying process, so Phoenix was the inaugural go-round. No one knew quite what to expect and there was a bit of concern about drivers intentionally blocking each other to prevent fast lap times, something NASCAR officials planned to keep an eye on. Instead, the action on the track was sparse for long stretches, with some drivers racing out to get qualifying laps in right away while several others waited several minutes to get their first lap in. One issue while there were multiple cars on the track were the speeds. NASCAR decided against allowing teams to have cool down units in their pit stalls, so most of the drivers in the field put in one fast lap and one that was much slower to cool their engines, creating differences of up to 100 mph between the cars. Weve got a really good dialogue with all of our competitors, said Robin Pemberton, NASCARs vice president for competition and racing development. They dont want to force us to do something thats wrong. They weigh in because they think things can be better. Its our job to take and balance all that out and remove the agenda part of that a team may or may not have. Right now, its working pretty good.B2SATURDAY, MARCH1, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS 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.

Bedard spent the first five years of his career with the Orioles and is competing to win the fifth starters spot in his first season with the Rays. The lefthander yielded three first-inning runs, although that doesnt necessarily mean he took a step back in his bid to get back on track following a pair of disappointing years with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Houston Astros. Tillman, a first-time All-Star in 2013, allowed one hit, struck out three and walked none. Steve Clevenger had a RBI single and Alex Gonzalez finished Baltimores big inning against Bedard with a two-run single. Jerry Sands and Justin Christian drove in runs for the Rays.Yankees 7, Tigers (ss) 4LAKELAND Max Scherzer allowed a second-inning homer by Yankees newcomer Brian McCann, but the Detroit right-hander was otherwise sharp in his first start of the spring, yielding only that one hit in the Tigers 7-4 loss to the New York Yankees. Scherzer, the American Leagues Cy Young Award winner, struck out two without a walk. Three of New Yorks top free agent signings from the offseason McCann, Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury made the trip to Lakeland to face Detroits split squad. McCanns drive to right leading off the second was the only hit by that trio. Gary Sanchez, Jose Pirela and Yangervis Solarte also homered for the Yankees.Nationals 5, Mets 4PORT ST.

For the Canes, senior third baseman Ben Wright bunted in a run and knocked in another with a liner to left-center. CHS senior catcher Cody Bogart scored twice, and Atkinson, who fanned six, walked one and yielded five hits in six innings, helped his cause with a couple of base hits and two stolen bases. Hard-throwing lefty Austin Bogart struck out three and allowed a walk and a single to fellow center fielder Bobby Langley in closing out the game for Citrus in the seventh. One night after Canes senior Chad Dawson no-hit Hernando, CHS coach Brady Bogart commended his teams pitching, but noted his groups persistent struggles at the plate and in the field, where it committed three errors on the night. Our team didnt come focused, Bogart said, so we kicked them off during pre-game. We got very fortunate tonight based on the first inning. Thank goodness our pitchings doing a good job. Good for Alex. He and Austin (shoulder) didnt have their best stuff. Were still looking for nine quality hitters, Bogart added. Alex Barbees pinch-hit RBI single and a couple of sacrifice bunts from Ben Wright and Tristan Gompers were big for us. Senior first baseman Jacob Schenck (double, walk) and junior second baseman Ashton Honeggar each had a pair of hits for LHS, which picked up wins over Weeki Wachee and Hudson this week before dropping to 2-5 (0-1 in district) Friday. The Panthers run shortage was as much about timing as anything. They reached base at least once every inning, but couldnt assemble a rally that would generate more dividends. We couldnt seem to get em going when we had runners on, Logue said. Thats a clutch thing. Its tough. Some of our guys in those situations were striking out looking and not coming up ready to hit. Its a mind frame that you cant coach. Theyve just got to get it somehow. Meanwhile, Atkinson stayed ahead of hitters while enjoying a three-run cushion. I felt like I just had to pitch to the batter and let my defense do the work, Atkinson said. I still need to work on my curveball, but overall I felt good with my pitches. Citrus doesnt play again until next Friday, when it travels to Dunnellon for another 5A-6 matchup. Lecanto plays at home Tuesday against Hudson at 6:30 p.m. first, (Lecanto) only scored one run. It didnt take errors to get the Panthers runs in the second. With two out, a single by Jordan Martin followed by back-to-back, runscoring doubles by Paige Richards and Amber Hopkins made it 3-0, and an error on a Richards ground ball to shortstop delivered another run in the fourth to make it 4-0. Citrus started to chip away at the lead with two runs in the bottom half of the fourth, a pair of Lecanto errors letting the first run score and a triple by Josey getting the second in to make it 4-2. Each team scored a run in the sixth, Richards powering a triple to right field and scoring on an errant throw to third for Lecantos run and an RBI single by Lawler bringing in one for Citrus. Lecanto answered by scoring twice in the top of the seventh, with a pair of freshmen Madison Kofman and Rebecca Schuler each knocking in a run with a hit, making it 7-3. Hopkins and Richards led the Lecanto attack, Hopkins getting three hits and one run batted in and Richards collecting a double and a triple with one RBI. Kelsie Lilley also had two hits and an RBI. Josey was the top producer at the plate for Citrus with a double, triple and three RBIs. Alyssa Nathan and Ferreira also had two hits and an RBI apiece. Martin got the win in relief of Kelly Abramowich, pitching the final three innings and giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits. Yant took the loss for Lecanto. Rogers labored through the last four frames for Crystal River in relief, giving up five runs on 10 hits, with five strikeouts and two walks on 84 pitches. The Tigers grabbed the lead in the fourth, as Bo Dewitz (3 for 4, two doubles, three runs) singled to start the inning. Dewitz moved up to second on a passed ball, and Lyle Savage drove him in with a line drive basehit to left, making it 3-2, Dunnellon. Quinn Roosens bloop single to right field in the fifth inning plated Dewitz to make it 4-2, who led off that frame with a double high off the wall in left. Roosen went 2-for-4 with two RBI and Savage was 2-for-3 with two RBI and a walk. Meanwhile, the Pirate bats quieted since Humphreys two-run double, mustering just two hits over the final six innings. Rogers brought Crystal River to within 4-3 with an RBI single in the sixth, but Dunnellon tacked on three more runsin the seventh beforeMills pitched the final inning to close it out for the Tigers. Dunnellon starter Donte White cruised after the first inning, going five frames while surrendering two runs on four hits and two walks. As far as adjusting at the plate against him, we didnt do too well as a team, Stack said. It just wasnt our night. I feel like were a better baseball team than that. All the way around, the whole team made mistakes tonight, players and coaches. The Pirates will try to right the ship Tuesday when they host Faith Baptist for a 6:30 p.m. start.

B4SATURDAY, MARCH1, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Currys triple-double helps Warriors rout Knicks Durant pours in 37 as OKC tops Memphis Associated PressNEW YORK Stephen Curry had 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in three quarters, Klay Thompson added 25 points, and the Golden State Warriors sent the frustrated New York Knicks to a fifth straight loss with a 126-103 victory Friday night. Returning to the site of his sensational shooting performance of a year ago, when he scored a careerhigh 54 points on 11-of-13 shooting from 3-point range, Curry showed off his entire skill set in this one. The NBAs assists leader made five 3-pointers, as did backcourt mate Thompson. The 6-foot-3 All-Star also grabbed nine defensive rebounds in his fourth career tripledouble and third this season, bouncing back from a season low-tying five points on 2-of-10 shooting Wednesday in a 103-83 loss to Chicago. Carmelo Anthony had 23 points and 16 rebounds for the Knicks.Cavaliers 99, Jazz 79CLEVELAND Kyrie Irving recorded his first career tripledouble with 21 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 99-79 win over the Utah Jazz. The All-Star Game MVP was two rebounds shy of the mark going into the fourth quarter, but grabbed his ninth rebound early in the period and pulled down his 10th with 4:12 to go. A young fan wearing a stocking cap raced on the floor and patted Irving on the shoulder midway through the fourth quarter, but was quickly subdued by several policemen and security guards. The fan was wrestled to the floor and led away in handcuffs. Luol Deng scored 16 points as the Cavaliers placed five players in double figures. Gordon Hayward scored 18 points for Utah, which began a six-game road trip.Thunder 113, Grizzlies 107OKLAHOMA CITY Kevin Durant scored 30 of his 37 points in the second half to help the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the Memphis Grizzlies 113-107. Russell Westbrook had 21 points and six assists in 28 minutes, Serge Ibaka had 16 points and nine rebounds and Reggie Jackson added 14 points for the Thunder, who snapped a three-game losing streak. The Thunder had lost every game since Westbrook returned from his latest knee surgery. Mike Miller scored all 19 of his points in the fourth quarter to help Memphis nearly erase a 16-point deficit heading into the period. Marc Gasol had 17 points and Zach Randolph added 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who had won five of six.Spurs 92, Bobcats 82SAN ANTONIO Tim Duncan had 17 points and 16 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs overcame a sluggish start to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 92-82. Manu Ginobili scored 15 points, Marco Belinelli and Patty Mills added 14 each and Kawhi Leonard had 12 for San Antonio (42-16). Al Jefferson scored 20 points and former Spurs guard Gary Neal added 15 for Charlotte. Gerald Henderson had 12 and Kemba Walker 11. There were three ties and two lead changes in the final 7 minutes as San Antonio celebrated Military Appreciation Night with camouflage uniforms.Bulls 100, Mavericks 91DALLAS Taj Gibson had 20 points and 15 rebounds, Mike Dunleavy hit a go-ahead 3-pointer and the Chicago Bulls overtook the Dallas Mavericks in the fourth quarter of a 100-91 victory. The Mavericks led by 16 in the first half and had erased a six-point Chicago edge when Dunleavy put the Bulls back in front and started a 10-0 run with a 3-pointer for an 87-85 lead. Jimmy Butler had 19 points, seven rebounds and a big block during the decisive spurt, and Kirk Hinrich scored 17. Dunleavy finished with 17 points and eight rebounds, shooting 4 of 7 from long range. Monta Ellis scored 20 to the lead the Mavericks. Associated PressGolden States Stephen Curry drives past New York Knick Tyson Chandler during the second half Friday in New York. Different directions McIlroy soars, and Woods nearly misses the cut Associated PressPALM BEACH GARDENS Golf is starting to feel easy again for Rory McIlroy, who bounced back from a sloppy start Friday in the Honda Classic for a 4-under 66 that gave him his first 36-hole lead on the PGA Tour in 18 months. Tiger Woods is making it look hard. McIlroy recovered from two early bogeys by running off six birdies in a 10-hole stretch. He looked solid from tee-to-green, hit putts with growing confidence and wound up with a oneshot lead over Brendon de Jonge. McIlroy was at 11-under 129. Woods was over the cut line after scrambling for a bogey on the 11th hole and wound up with a 69 to make the cut on the number. Because 79 players made the cut, there will be another cut to top 70 and ties on Saturday. Woods missed the 54-hole cut the last time he played on the PGA Tour at Torrey Pines. And at least hes still playing the weekend. That wasnt the case for Phil Mickelson. Playing the Honda Classic for the first time in 12 years, he had a 71 to miss the cut. So did Henrik Stenson, the No. 3 player in the world, with rounds of 73-76. McIlroy knew the feeling a year ago, when he took a steep fall from No. 1 in the world while changing equipment and trying to live up to high expectations, leading to his snap decision to walk off the course after 26 holes last year at the Honda Classic. A growing gallery in warm sunshine at PGA National saw a familiar game the McIlroy who won the Honda Classic two years ago. De Jonge shot 64. Russell Henley had a 68 and was three shots behind. Russell Knox of Scotland had the low round Friday at 63 and was four shots back along with Lee Westwood (65).HSBC Womens ChampionsSINGAPORE Australias Karrie Webb opened a twostroke lead in the HSBC Womens Champions, shooting a 3-under 69 to reach 9 under on Sentosas Serapong Course. The 39-year-old Hall of Famer won the Womens Australian Open two weeks ago for her 40th LPGA Tour career. She won the 2011 event at Tanah Merah. Angela Stanford, the 2012 winner at Tanah Merah, was second after a 69. Taiwans Teresa Lu was 6 under after a 70. Swedens Anna Nordqvist, the LPGA Thailand winner last week, had a 67 to top the group at 4 under.Tshwane OpenCENTURION, South Africa Englands Ross Fisher had an eagle-birdie-birdie-par finish to take a one-stroke lead after the second round of the Tshwane Open. Fisher had a 7-under 65 at Copperleaf to reach 13 under. He eagled the par-5 15th with a curling 40-footer. Denmarks Morten Orum Madsen, the South African Open winner, was second after a 65.Honda ClassicFriday, At PGA National Resort and Spa, The Champion, Palm Beach Gardens, Purse: $6 million, Yardage: 7,140, Par 70, Second Round: Rory McIlroy63-66 129-11 Brendon de Jonge66-64 130-10 Russell Henley64-68 132-8 Lee Westwood68-65 133-7 Russell Knox 70-63 133-7 Jamie Donaldson65-69 134-6 Ryan Palmer 68-66 134-6 William McGirt65-69 134-6 Daniel Summerhays70-65 135-5 Chris Stroud 69-66 135-5 Boo Weekley 68-67 135-5 John Senden72-63 135-5 Thomas Bjorn69-66 135-5 Luke Donald 67-68 135-5 Derek Ernst 66-69 135-5 Will MacKenzie67-68 135-5 Brendan Steele69-66 135-5 Jason Kokrak70-66 136-4 Jhonattan Vegas70-66 136-4 Mark Wilson 67-69 136-4 Chris Kirk 69-67 136-4 Rory Sabbatini65-71 136-4 David Lingmerth69-68 137-3 Adam Scott 68-69 137-3 Stewart Cink 69-68 137-3 Graeme McDowell70-67 137-3 George McNeill70-67 137-3 David Hearn 67-70 137-3 Billy Hurley III70-67 137-3 Jamie Lovemark69-68 137-3 Ben Crane 69-68 137-3 Zach Johnson67-70 137-3 Keegan Bradley69-68 137-3 Ted Potter, Jr.71-66 137-3 Seung-Yul Noh69-68 137-3 Troy Merritt 68-69 137-3 Brice Garnett66-71 137-3 Nicholas Thompson68-70 138-2 Josh Teater 70-68 138-2 Erik Compton70-68 138-2 Tyrone Van Aswegen67-71 138-2 Rickie Fowler69-69 138-2 Trevor Immelman69-69 138-2 Cameron Tringale69-69 138-2 Matteo Manassero67-71 138-2 Derek Fathauer67-71 138-2 Andres Romero70-68 138-2 Patrick Reed 71-67 138-2 Stuart Appleby69-69 138-2 Freddie Jacobson69-69 138-2 Hudson Swafford67-71 138-2 Heath Slocum71-68 139-1 D.A.

During intermission, sprint drivers will participate in an autograph session on the front stretch of the track, in front of the grandstand. Their feature is scheduled to go 30 laps. The class is hosted by Citrus the first Saturday of each month of the season, and attracted 26 drivers on its first Citrus visit. Aaron Pierce, down from his hometown of Indianapolis, prevailed in that nights feature against stiff competition from Tampas Joey Agvilar and Mickey Kempgens, as well as second-place finisher Jimmy Alvis Sr., of Seffner. Inverness Herb Neumann Jr. (No. 81) and Steven Bradley (No. 7) represented Citrus County in the group, but failed to muster a top-10 finish on that opening night. Neumann, a 30-year veteran in stock cars, continues to expand his racing palette after winning dual championships in Open Wheel Modifieds and Late Models a season ago. If last weeks Street Stock feature was any indication, a compelling season-long rivalry between Inverness Curtis Flanagan and Floral Citys Tim Wilson may be brewing, as each have a feature and heat win after a pair of events. Flanagan, a four-time points champion, won his 25th feature since the beginning of 2012 in the opener, only to watch Wilson lead from the first lap in pulling within three points of Flanagan in the standings with the victory. The Pure Stock divisions car count has been strongest among local classes, making for a strong mix of capable drivers. Last Saturday, 2013 champ Jason Waller took his heat and the feature on his first night of the year. Bronsons Larry Welter Sr. scored a feature win on the divisions opening night, while Karlin Ray, the class-leader most of last season, and Mike Autenrieth each have a heat win and a second-place feature finish. With a pair of feature and heat wins, Wesley Chapels Raymond Vann has dominated the Pro Hornet Division in two events this season. The Champ Kart Series open its season tonight, with four more dates at Citrus scheduled throughout the year. Ron Sanford won last years S.E.C.K.S. overall track series championship, while Dustin Chisholm, a second-place finisher at Citrus last May, claimed its Florida Triple Crown Series. The fan participation event will allow fans to race their own (nonracing) cars for no fee. Two cars race at a time, with the winner advancing until he or she is the final driver standing. Heats begin at 5:30 p.m. Grandstand gates open at 4 p.m., and are $13 for adults, $9 for students, seniors and military personnel with identification, and $5 for children age 11 and under (children shorter than 42 inches are free). Family passes for two adults and two students or children are $30. SEANARNOLD CorrespondentJason Terry has been a fan of local racing a lot longer than hes been a driver. He got hooked on the sport as a child attending the Citrus County Speedway with his grandmother, and only got into the drivers seat for the first time last year at 39 years old. My grandmother was a real, real big fan of Bruce Gaskins and Dave Scarborough and all of them back in the day, Terry recalled, and she used to take us up (to Citrus) when we were kids all the time. Thats when the track didnt have a wall on turns one and two, so when the cars went off the track, theyd just shoot over the hill and disappear. We thought it was the coolest thing, and I fell in love with racing ever since then. Developing such a love for racing from the stands has made Terry, who drives the No. 73 mini stock, especially appreciative of the fans. The feeling is mutual he has a faithful following of around 60 friends, family and well-wishers that tend to gather on the bleachers at turn four. When he won his second all-time feature last Saturday, two days after his 40th birthday, the Belleview driver joined the section for a little celebration afterward. When I got done with the race, I loaded the car and we went over there and hung out with them, Terry said. All of my family, and everybody that comes out and cheers for me, they always hang out in turn four. Anytime Im interviewed after finishing in the top three, I holler at them down there. With racing facing tough economic challenges, as well as competition from other entertainments, Terry tries to do his part in helping, which includes posting a different biblical verse on his window each race. Im trying to see how many people notice when I change it, he said. Whatever they have going on at the track, I try to make it. I decorated my car for the Halloween race last year, and took second in that. Despite an inauspicious start, which saw him crashing into the wall with a stuck throttle on his first race, Terry met his goals in his first season, earning himself rookie of the year honors and finishing second in points in the Mini Stock class. Hes now poised to make a serious run at a championship. My goal last year was to start every race and not tear my car up, said Terry, who does all his own mechanical work, and I was able to do that. Im going to try to do the same this year and definitely try to get that points championship. Weve done a lot of work to the car and have made it pretty fast this year. Ive (gone) through and changed everything from the motor to the transmission. Hopefully, I stay competitive this year. By mounting a lead for good moments after the green flag flew, Terrys feature win last Saturday was a more emphatic triumph than his first win last year. I didnt realize I had won at first, he said of the earlier win. They shut the laps short and I looked behind me and there was no one there. Everybody else had broken down. Thats the only reason I got it. I was the last man standing. Terrys friendly nature and enthusiasm for racing make him a good ambassador for the sport. He recommends everyone whos curious give it a shot. If somebody ever says, Hey, Id like to run a racecar, they need to do it, he said, Its something everybody needs to experience one time. Terry said everyone in his class is supportive of one another at least off the track. Were all there to win, but when it comes down to it, theyre all good guys. When you ask them a question, theyll tell you. I betcha they got tired of me asking questions last year, because I didnt know anything. Theyre real friendly there, but when the green flag flies, its all about racing, buddy. Im not where I want to be, he added, but then again I started this game late, at 39 years old.You learn something every time you go out, and the car always changes. From track conditions to weather, it all plays a role in it. Its a blast. After earning rookie of the year honors in 2013, Terry setting sights higher BUTCH CRAWFORD/ Special to the ChronicleJason Terry of Belleview was Citrus County Speedways mini stock rookie of the year in 2013. Earnhardt going fast and furious on Twitter Associated PressAVONDALE, Ariz. NASCARs most popular driver won the sports biggest race last weekend. It may not have been the most exciting news of the week, at least when it comes to fans of Dale Earnhardt Jr. A reluctant participant on Twitter for years, Earnhardt burst into the Twitterverse this week with a flourish of revealing tweets that have given fans insight into his life they never knew before. I dont know what I was thinking, why I didnt get on there earlier, Earnhardt said from Phoenix International Speedway on Friday. Its a great way to tell people things you appreciate and its instant. Earnhardt has had a Twitter account since 2008, when JR Motorsports signed up @DaleJr. Earnhardt had no interest in that end of social media at first, so the account sat dormant for years. That changed early Monday morning, hours after Earnhardt won his second Daytona 500 and posted a photo of himself with the trophy: Tonight seemed like as good a night as any to join Twitter. How is everyone doin? Earnhardts Twitter account soared once he started typing 140 characters at a time, rising to more than 527,000 followers by Friday. Its been a very interesting follow, him getting creative, fellow Sprint Cup driver Jimmie Johnson said. He must have been watching from afar for a while because he has the lingo down, attacking people, holding up pretty well. He didnt enter as a rookie on Twitter, in my opinion. Hes off to a pretty good start. Its certainly been entertaining and fairly revealing. Earnhardt participated in a Twitter chat with fans on Tuesday night and kept the tweets rolling this week, up over 130 by Friday morning. Among the revelations hes made on Twitter so far: He always goes the speed limit, figuring hed look stupid if he gets a ticket when hes supposed to be a professional driver. If he had to eat only one food for a month, it would be barbecue. His favorite car to drive is a midnight blue 76 Chevy Laguna. The one topping he would want on a pizza is banana peppers. His favorite style of racing is on short tracks such as Bristol and Martinsville. Hanging from a fork in a tree near his house is the cockpit of Will Powers IndyCar from the crash in Las Vegas that killed Dan Wheldon. His favorite color his orange. His favorite band is the Matthew Good Band. His favorite gadget is his iPad and JBL speaker. Im still learning. Theres still a lot of questions about the software, how to physically use it, Earnhardt said. I never used it before. Its been fun to interact with the fans ... and it was enjoyable to be plugged in whenever you feel like it. I hope the fans have enjoyed it.

Donovan has gotten key contributions from his last three transfers, starting with former Georgetown center Vernon Macklin in 2009 and continuing with former Rutgers guard Mike Rosario in 2011. Now, its Dorian Finney-Smith making the most of his relatively new surroundings in Gainesville. Finney-Smith, who sat out last year after transferring from Virginia Tech, is coming off one of his best games of the season a 19-point, nine-rebound performance at Vanderbilt that helped the No. 1 Gators extend their winning streak to 20 games. When hes playing well, it definitely changes and helps our team, Donovan said Friday. Florida, which hosts LSU today, clinched the Southeastern Conference regular-season title by virtue of Kentuckys loss to Arkansas on Thursday night. But the team has no plans to celebrate just yet. The Gators (26-2, 15-0) are chasing greatness their motto down the stretch after coming up just short of the Final Four the last three years. Finney-Smith just might be the X-factor in the teams title chase. The 6-foot-8 sophomore has the size, skill and athletic ability to score inside and out, and has shown he can be a force on the offensive and defensive boards. Doing it consistently has been the challenge. Although Finney-Smith leads the team in rebounding, averaging 7.1 a game, and has more assists than turnovers a rarity for a big man he has struggled to score. Before Tuesday nights breakout game against the Commodores, Finney-Smith failed to reach double figures in 10 of his previous 11 outings. His biggest slump was from the 3-point line, where he had made just one shot in his last 26 attempts. He also missed 22 in a row during that stretch. He made three 3s against Vandy, including one with 32 seconds left that gave Florida a five-point lead in a nail-biter. It felt good, said FinneySmith, widely considered the front-runner for the leagues Sixth Man of the Year Award. I went through a little bit of a slump, but its great to see how much work I put in. Florida could use FinneySmith to knock down a few more long-range shots. After all, one of the teams main weaknesses is a lack of 3-point shooting. Sure, Michael Frazier II is one of the best in the league from behind the arc and Scottie Wilbekin is a legitimate threat, too. But the Gators are missing that third perimeter shooter who really could open things up inside for Patric Young and Will Yeguete. Finney-Smith showed glimpses earlier this season, making nine of his first 23 shots from 3-point range. But hes been way more miss than hit since. Maybe the Vandy game will turn things around. Huge for him, Frazier said. Im glad he was able to shoot the ball well because he was going through a shooting slump obviously. Glad he was able to knock down some shots for us he hit a big one late down the stretch so very happy for him, happy for our team he was able to help us pull off that win. Regardless of the slump, Finney-Smith has found a comfortable niche as the teams sixth man.

RELIGION Section CSATURDAY, MARCH 1, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Son of God, spun out of the hugely successful The Bible miniseries, plays up the political maneuvering that led to the crucifixion. It won an endorsement from the Anti-Defamation Leagues Abraham Foxman, one of the Jewish leaders who denounced Mel Gibsons 2004 blockbuster Passion. Clearly we were aware of the controversy that had been created around that film, actress and executive producer Roma Downey said in a recent interview. If everything begins with intention, our heart on Son of God was to find the places that we could bring people together. Gibson famously self-financed and distributed his ultra-violent Passion in 2004. It became a box office hit but was criticized by some reviewers and religious leaders for its depiction of Jews. Downeys husband, The Voice and Survivor producer Mark Burnett, said the Christian filmmaking team reached out specifically to other faiths to tell the story of the life of Jesus played with an air of bemused dignity by Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado without causing offense. It just took a lot of work and a lot of time and a lot of listening over a number of years to see everybodys point of view and how to not take the teeth out of the story the dynamic drama from the story but be sensitive across groups, Burnett said. Because theres very different interpretations across the Catholic faith and the Protestant faith and the Jewish faith. Using footage shot during production of History Channels ten-part These past few weeks I have been diligently preparing for Lent. How, you ask? Well, two weeks ago I found a pair of stone-colored flats online at 30 percent off and bought them. And today I bought a pair of white pants that were on sale (plus I used a $10 off coupon). Even though its only early March and I have several or five pairs of white pants in my closet, they are all Caprilength and these are ankle-length, which is more suited to this time of year, or so I am telling myself. I call this my Lenten preparation because for the past few years Ive given up recreational shopping for the 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter. To prepare effectively, I want to make sure I get all my shopping obsession out of my system before Lent begins. Once, when I was 19 or so, I decided to go on a diet, but my mom had given me a box of Twinkies. I postponed my diet date one day and ate the whole box of Twinkies in one sitting. Im not proud of that, but Ive done worse. So, Ive got my new shoes and Ive got my new white pants. I stocked up on a new lipstick pencil and a new purse Im ready for Lent. Ready to go without and sacrifice and suffer for Jesus. Oh, who am I kidding? Not God, thats for sure. A few years ago, I went to two Ash Wednesday services, one in the morning at a local Catholic church to cover it for the newspaper and then in the evening at my church. I remember telling my husband that I was going twice and him asking, Are you that bad? He has no idea. Just the fact that Im loading up my closet and counting down the 40 days of no recreational shopping (and wondering if I can redefine the concept of recreational shopping in order to find loopholes) should be evidence enough that, yes, I am that bad. When I was a kid, our family gave up sweets for Lent, except ice cream, because my dad likes ice cream. Also, Im pretty sure we ate sweets on Sundays because that was the day we usually went to visit my grandmother at her bakery and it would be a sin not to eat her fudgy chocolate cake. Loopholes, yall. Its all about the loopholes. Frankly, I dont know why I even attempt participating in Lent since Im often half-hearted at best in the days leading up to it. But every year, something happens on Ash Wednesday. I come to church with my lukewarm faith and lame attempts at self-sacrifice, and as the service begins Im presented with not only the call to daily repentance and selfdenial but also the deep love of Jesus. Theres a story of a man who was such a big sinner that he boasted only the pope can absolve me. So, he went to the pope to confess his sins, and for his penance the pope gave him a list of things to do Bible reading, giving money to the poor, doing good deeds. But the man had an excuse for every penance the pope gave him. Finally, the pope gave him a ring and instructed him to read the inscription every day: Jesus loves me. Every day he read it, and as he pondered the message he ended up doing the penances the pope had given him to do and he did them joyfully. Its as my pastor often says, We dont deny ourselves to get the smile of God. We deny ourselves because we already have it. Jesus loves me always comes before sacrifice or self-denial. On Ash Wednesday, I always walk into church and enter Lent feeling defeated and guilty before I even begin, RELIGION BRIEFS Rick Warren acts on health in sons death LAKE FOREST, Calif. A year after his sons suicide, pastor Rick Warren is taking on a new mental health ministry inspired by his personal tragedy. Warren, founder of Saddleback Church and a best-selling author, will team with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange, Calif., and the National Alliance on Mental Illness to host a daylong event next month. The Gathering on Mental Health and the Church grew out of private conversations Warren had with the local Catholic bishop, Bishop Kevin Vann, after his sons death and his own writings in his journal as he processed his grief. Matthew Warren, who was only 27, committed suicide last April after struggling with severe depression and suicidal thoughts for years. After Matthews suicide, more than 10,000 people wrote to Warren and his wife, Kay, to share their own struggles with mental illness. Warren says the conference will address a range of mental health issues, from bipolar disorder to suicide to more easily hidden issues such as anxiety, eating disorders and addiction. Catholic health issue raises growth concerns ST. LOUIS The rapid growth of a St. Louis-based Catholic health care system that is branching out into for-profit ventures is raising questions about its charitable status. Ascension Health was created 15 years ago with the merger of the St. Louis-based Daughters of Charity National Health System and the Michigan-based Sisters of St. Joseph Health System. It has since grown into the nations thirdlargest health care system by buying dozens of nonprofit hospitals and pursuing numerous for-profit ventures. The St. Louis Post-Dispatchreports the company reported $17 billion in revenue in the 2013 fiscal year but didnt pay corporate income taxes on its nonprofit operations. Financial statements show Ascension has $30 billion in assets. One expert on tax-exempt organizations University of Illinois law professor John Colombo said other corporations like Microsoft also do charitable work, but pay taxes. Ascension said it provided $525 million in charity care to the poor last year as well as $775 million in community benefits to the general public. First overhaul made of Vatican in 25 years VATICAN Pope Francis has announced the first major overhaul of the Vaticans outdated and inefficient bureaucracy in a quarter-century. Hes created a new structure that will control all economic, administrative, personnel and procurement functions of the Holy See. Australian Cardinal George Pell, one of Francis core eight cardinal advisers and a sharp critic of current Vatican governance, will head the new office. Court wont revive Arizona abortion law PHOENIX The U.S. Supreme Court is refusing to revive an Arizona state law that would have disqualified abortion providers from receiving funding for other medical services they provide. The high court on Monday declined to hear Attorney General Tom Hornes appeal asking the justices to overturn a federal judges ruling blocking the 2012 law. That ruling was upheld by an appeals court in August. The law would have disqualified Planned Parenthood and other health providers that perform abortions from receiving public funds for other services. The Supreme Court in May refused to revive a similar law in Indiana that also has been blocked.

C2SATURDAY, MARCH1, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLERELIGION miniseries The Bible, the film being released Friday spends much of its final half examining maneuvering by Jerusalems military governor, Pontius Pilate, and Judean high priest Caiaphas. Its like House of Cards in many ways, Burnett said. Theyre all humans living their lives ... Pilate is scared of Caesar and what Rome might do. Caiaphas is scared of Pilate and losing the whole temple and their faith. Its a real political thriller with tension which explodes at Passover in Jerusalem. Burnett credits his miniseries, which garnered strong ratings and broke DVD and Blu-ray sales records last year, with this years flurry of biblical films from major Hollywood studios. Youve got to believe that the enormity of The Bible series had other biblical productions speed up, he said. Darren Aronofskys take on Noah, starring Russell Crowe, is coming next month. but I always leave feeling loved by Jesus and renewed, eager to deny myself as a self-discipline to rein in my self-indulgent tendencies. And yet, even if I dont, even if I try and cant, looking ahead to Easter, the Cross and the Resurrection reminds me that being right with God is not dependent on what I give up for him, but solely on what Jesus gave up for me.

A great opportunity to show this support will be Thursday, March 6, at the annual Steak & Steak Dinner at the M&B Products Dairy Farm, 8760 S. Lecanto Highway. Tickets are $50 per person in advance and $60 at the door. VIP tables are available by calling the administrative office at 352-621-9225 or by purchasing tickets from Boys & Girls Clubs board members. Doors open at 5:45 p.m. for the reception, with dinner at 7 p.m. There will be both live and silent auctions. The catering of the steak dinner is fully donated by the Kiwanis Club of Inverness. Boys & Girls Clubs of Citrus County are designed to bring out the best in children. At our clubs, staff members are supportive, caring, and above all accepting. Kids can be themselves and know they are appreciated just as they are, however they are. This is just the first part of our recipe for success. Relationships with caring adults are important and many a club alumni will tell how a staff member has made a positive difference in his or her life, supplying unwavering support and counseling. The second part of the recipe is the fun we apply to all of our programs and activities. Though we like for our members to learn, we also want them to enjoy doing it. Learning games and activities are infused with experiences that not only enhance what our members learn in school, but children have a good time participating. We are not an extension of school and while we have rules, we let kids be kids. A third ingredient to our recipe is that the clubs belong to the kids. They like that they have choices and have a part in making decisions through leadership experiences such as Torch Clubs and community service projects. These kids will be celebrated with the Youth of the Year award given at the Steak & Steak Dinner. The award will go to a youth who represents outstanding leadership, makes good grades, is an asset to his or her club and works to make the community a better place.

C6SATURDAY, MARCH1, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Ellen Hopkins, a novelist who writes primarily for teens and young adults, said, For short-term relaxation, I take a hot tub. Its my best way to unblock writers block, too. So, if you have a difficult decision to make at the bridge table, take a quick bath if the other players dont mind the delay, of course. Still, one of Hopkins words is relevant to this deal. How can the defenders defeat three notrump after West leads his fourth-highest spade to dummys bare king? North was right to respond three no-trump. Mentally look on king-singleton as king-doubleton. Even when the opening leader has the ace, he isnt going to lead it against a no-trump contract. South starts with seven top tricks: one spade (given the first trick), three hearts, one diamond and two clubs. The extra winners can obviously come from diamonds. And if that finesse is working, declarer will take the first 11 tricks. Even if the finesse loses, South will be all right if the opponents cannot cash four spade tricks. How can the defenders get those four spade winners? At trick one, East must drop his queen under dummys king. This serves two purposes: It tells partner about the queen and jack, allowing him to underlead the ace on the next round, and it unblocks the suit. (West knows the queen cannot be a singleton, because that would give South six spades.) Declarer will take the losing diamond finesse, whereupon the defenders can run four spade tricks but only if East unblocked the queen at trick one.

This is a third marriage for both of us. A few months back, my wife found that I had been visiting Internet porn sites. She became very upset and said this was the same as having sex outside of marriage. This is something Im not proud of and resolved not to do it again. Well, a few days back, in a moment of weakness, I typed in nude beach. She says this is the same as a porn site. I feel it isnt, because it is a public beach. Seeing how much pain I caused my wife, I wont go to that site again. However, I would like your opinion. Is this the same as adultery? No Cheater Dear No Cheater: Deliberately searching out nude beach is a way to look for naked bodies without using the word porn, but the effect is similar. And while looking at naked bodies is not the same as adultery, it is still a betrayal if it hurts your wife and you have broken your promise to stop. And if you are interacting in real time with real women online, we would consider that a form of cheating. You seem to have a problem with pornography. If you cannot stay away from it, consider that you may have an addiction that requires treatment. Dear Annie: My husband is a control freak in a way that I do not understand. For example, he takes me shopping to purchase expensive jewelry that I do not want but that he insists I get. Recently, my dad moved close by. I told my husband I was going to visit Dad, and he became angry, stating that we dont have the money to visit relatives. He said he would cancel the gas credit cards if I went. How should a sane person deal with this idiocy? Confused in Connecticut Dear Confused: If this is recent behavior, please ask your husband to get a complete physical from his doctor. Sometimes there is a physical or neurological reason for a bizarre change in behavior. Otherwise, consider that your husband may be trying to isolate you, the mark of a potential abuser, and using the jewelry to assuage your concerns. The National Domestic Violence Hotline (thehotline.org) at 1-800-799-7233 can help you sort it out. Dear Annie: I take issue with your response to Tired of Rude Family in Carolina, whose inconsiderate sister and niece refuse to inform the hostess when they are bringing an additional guest (usually the nieces boyfriend) to dinner. The uninvited boyfriend is probably unaware of these family dynamics. Why not seat him where the inconsiderate sister would have been, next to the niece, and put the sister on the piano bench with a paper plate? After a few times of putting the sister in the hot seat, she just might get it. JM in Tennessee Dear J.M.: We think if the boyfriend is always being shoved into an extra chair, he is well aware of the difficulty his presence causes. However, you are absolutely right that the sister should take the hit. Read on: Dear Annie: If this sister brings an uninvited guest to dinner every time, it shouldnt be a surprise. Just set an extra setting as a matter of course. For many people, there is a long held tradition of setting a place for Jesus. If someone extra shows up, they are welcomed, and that is the seat they are given. Dear Annie: I would set up a card table and put place settings of paper plates, plastic utensils and two chairs. When the late sis arrived, I would drape a towel over my arm and escort them to their reserved table. Id put a candle in the middle, just for a little class.

No Owner Finance (352) 621-3929 Tweet Tweet Tweet www.twitter.com/citruschroniclenews as it happens right at your finger tips Followus Question: Are Jews a people or a religion? Its the same old question akin to the proverbial: What came first, the chicken or the egg? When one of my readers in Citrus County posed it to me, I thought it would make for a provocative column. So here it is, the question everybody loves to ask: Are Jews a people or a religion? The answer, my dear Watson, is not so elementary. There are many factors at play here, and of course with two Jews you get three opinions, but from my humble point of view of a liberal Jewish woman living in the state of Florida, I wish to offer the following. If you were to examine the liturgy, you would find references to the Jewish people all over the siddur (prayer book). Each branch of Judaism publishes their own version, with their specialized translations of the original Hebrew according to the dictates of their movement. While the liberal branches will be gender neutral in terms of pronouns for God, the more traditional texts will still use the masculine. Despite these and other subtle differences, Jews are still referred to as the Jewish people or the people of Israel or Gods people or Your people (referring to God). There is definitely a relationship here between a specific group of people (nation) and the rest of the peoples of the world. That relationship that Jews have with God is in the form of a covenant or agreement, God will be Israels God and Israel will do Gods bidding. The ancient Israelites who morphed into todays Jews, were given a set of laws, (the Ten Commandments) and the Torah (Five Books of Moses) with all its laws and precepts in order to live a moral and just life. Jews are the vehicle for these laws, a nation to show others how to live in peace and harmony. When you are considered a nation, then you have a country, customs and folkways to call your own. Jews have all of these things. The state of Israel is the Jewish homeland and the customs and laws of Judaism are the law of the land. Here is where things get interesting. Judaism is a religion. Religion by definition is a set of spiritual beliefs complete with rituals, taboos and liturgy. Judaism is so a part of the Jewish psyche that you cannot separate the two. Even secular Jews will observe Shabbat in their own way; it is part of the customs of belonging to the Jewish people. Can you be a member of the Jewish people and be a nonpracticing Jew? The answer is yes, you would be considered a secular Jew because if your mother (some branches say father) was Jewish so are you a member of the Jewish people. Here peoplehood seems to trump religion. You are a member of the Jewish people even if all you do for Purim is eat Hamantashen or just attend a seder on Passover. You are also considered Jewish if you faithfully observe the commandments (mitzvot) and lead religious services. You also bond with the Jewish people by supporting Zionist causes and attending Jewish functions such as concerts or book reviews on Jewish topics. Jews are a close-knit group of people, a community where even on the holiest day of the year, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, prayers for forgiveness are recited in the plural. Mordecai Kaplan, the founder of the liberal Jewish movement, Reconstructionism, called Judaism a living religious civilization. He saw Judaism as not just a religion, but more of a civilization that is a group of people living together sharing similar values, music, art, food and religion. All of this describes the Jewish people. Where would we be without our distinctive food based on our specialized dietary laws, our music, art and even our way of dress? All these things characterize us as a nation and make us distinctive from others around us. Even our concept of holiness revolves around the idea of separateness, for example, taking an object, such as wine, and consecrating it to a higher purpose as Jews do on the Sabbath. So how can you be part of the Jewish people when you are Asian, African, Native American or other nationality or race? Here religion trumps nationality and so we have Jewish Africans such as the ones from Ethiopia, Chinese Jews and Native Americans who are members of both tribes! It is entirely up to you if you are an American Jew or a Jewish American because Judaism is a religion and being a Jew does not make you part of a race since Jews can be of any race or color. Despite Hitlers attempts to prove otherwise with his racial purity of the Aryan race and ridiculous caricatures of Jewish noses as a Jewish racial trait, Jews are descendants from Semite tribes (hence the term antiSemite for being against Jews) and since they were exiled by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E., they have been scattered all over the world assimilating into the worlds cultures. And so our answer to our question is that being a Jew makes you part of a people as well as a member of a specific religion. In truth, the way Jews think, act and pray and face life are so a part of us as a people. We have our own languages, Ladino and Yiddish and our holy tongue of Hebrew. And while we share many of our values with other groups, I still believe that nobody can play a violin like a Jew, and if you want to win a case, get a Jewish lawyer from New York. Kidding aside, our tradition teaches us that God and the Jewish people are one. That means that Jewish peoplehood and religion are one.
