PATFAHERTY Staff writerINVERNESS Gov. Rick Scott and Florida lawmakers were in the crosshairs Tuesday as a small crowd of residents rallied against directions the state is taking in education, health care, environmental protection and campaign contributions. The Inverness event was one of more than a dozen Awake the State rallies scheduled throughout Florida to coincide with the opening of the 2014 legislative session. Its a coordinated effort, said Citrus County organizer Harriet Heywood prior to the rally. Events all around the state will educate voters. She cited target issues including voter suppression, Medicaid, education and environmental issues. Gov. Scott and his allies have been giving away billions in tax benefits to the wealthy; meanwhile theyve laid off thousands of public workers and teachers and they are refusing to expand Medicaid in the state of Florida.

The boys father said its the adults who are acting childish for suspending the boy from Devonshire Alternative Elementary School in Columbus last week. The fifth-grader said he was just playing around. But district spokesman Jeff Warner told The Columbus Dispatch that Devonshire Principal Patricia Price has warned students about pretend gun play numerous times this year, and everyone should know the rules by now. He said warnings have been included in three newsletters sent home with kids. Warner said the boy put his finger to the side of the other students head and pretended to shoot kind of execution style. The kids were told, If you dont stop doing this type of stuff, there would be consequences, Warner said. Its just been escalating. The boys father said no one felt threatened. The other student didnt see it happen, but a teacher witnessed it. Since zero-tolerance policies were adopted following school shootings around the country, Columbus schools have disciplined students for violations including firing a Nerf foam-dart gun at school. A similar policy was cited last year when a Maryland school suspended a 7-year-old boy who had chewed a PopTart into a gun shape.Man killed by tire from passing carWILLISTON A north Florida man died and another was seriously injured when a tire flew off a passing car and hit them. Williston police said Patrick Woodard was driving north on U.S. 41 on Monday when the left front tire broke off and bounced along the highway. It hit part of a driveway and went into the air, clearing a metal fence around an auto body shop. The spinning tire hit 33-year-old Ivan Sandquist, killing him instantly. It also struck 45year-old James Fender, who was taken to a Gainesville hospital. The Gainesville Sun reported the men had been working on an air compressor. Legislators begin work Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida legislators opened their annual 60-day session on Tuesday with legislative leaders vowing to cut taxes, expand the use of private school vouchers and make changes to the states pension system. The first day, which is usually confined to speeches and ceremony, did get overshadowed briefly as protesters began to chant and sing in the rotunda that separates the House and Senate. The protesters were part of the same group that occupied the Capitol this past summer and demanded a repeal of the states contentious stand your ground law. Still, legislators did manage to get down to business by the end of the first day. The Senate passed package of bills designed to strengthen sexual predator laws, while the House passed one that requires state colleges and universities to charge military veterans in-state tuition rates. Both were passed with bipartisan support. We will protect our children and we will scorch the earth against sexually violent predators, said Senate President Don Gaetz about the laws aimed at sex offenders. During the next nine weeks, legislators plan to debate everything from Lawmakers pass bills that toughen sexual predator laws, give veterans in-state tuition Associated PressGov. Rick Scott is greeted Tuesday by senators and representatives on the floor of the House of Representatives before his State of the State speech at the Capitol in Tallahassee. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Gov. Rick Scott touted Floridas improving economy in a State of the State speech Tuesday that drew a contrast between the recession years under former Gov. Charlie Crist and the jobs created during his first three years in office. Scott described the bleak economic condition the state was in when he took office in 2011 and then highlighted efforts hes made to make the state more business friendly. Without directly naming Crist, a Republicanturned-Democrat who hopes to challengeGov. Scott touts improved economy Bill sets up trust for Citrus Memorial hospital funds MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerState Sen. Charlie Dean on Tuesday filed legislation to limit the Citrus County Hospital Boards taxing authority and create an irrevocable charitable trust to oversee millions of dollars from the Citrus Memorial hospital lease. The bill, which follows weeks of negotiations between attorneys with the hospital board and Citrus Memorial Health Foundation, is in response to the expected takeover by Hospital Corporation of America by late September. HCA has offered $140 million for a 50-year lease of Citrus Memorial. Removing amounts dedicated to debt reduction, covering the employee pension and funds initially set aside to protect HCA against possible misrepresentations by the foundation, about $15 million is the expected net to the community at first. That amount should swell to $51 million within two years, and grow even See LAWS / Page A11 See SCOTT/ Page A11 From wire reports Residents rally to educate voters MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleHarriet Heywood addresses a small group of protestors Tuesday in downtown Inverness.

higher as set-aside funds are released, CCHB attorney Bill Grant said. The bill, SB 1430, would: Create an irrevocable community trust to oversee the proceeds, and dedicate those dollars to the medically related needs of Citrus County citizens. Require that at least two members of the trust board be chosen by voters in nonpartisan elections. Require the trust board to be quasi-government, subject to audit authority by the clerk of court. Reduce the maximum millage the CCHB could levy from 3 mills to 0.25 mills. It would allow exceptions if HCA abandons the lease or gives notice that it will close the hospital, or if there is litigation regarding the lease. The current millage is 0.245 mills. While the CCHB has had the 3-mill maximum, the tax rate has never exceeded 1.16 mills, Grant said. Grant and foundation attorney Clark Stillwell said they are continuing to have discussions tweaking language in the bill. Both, however, said the bill is a start in creating a system to protect proceeds from the Citrus Memorial lease for the greater good of the community. Once they create it, its irrevocable, Stillwell said, referring to the trust. We did not want a scenario where one board says yes and five or six years later another board says no.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com.A2WEDNESDAY, MARCH5, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL/STATE 000HKHF NORTH CENTRAL FLORIDAS MOST TRUSTED HEARING AID CENTERSHomosassa 5699 S.

Another big issue in Florida is voting rights, she said. If everybody who could vote, voted, there could be no way that these people could win. The fund for public education is below the 2007 funding level, we have more students in the state than we had in 2011, but we have less money going to the schools, said Debra Platt, Citrus County Education Association officer and high school teacher, who was also critical of state-mandated testing. In Citrus County we have over 100 days that are dedicated to testing in our school calendar, she said. One hundred and eighty days of school and over a 100 are of testing. You have to continually teach about the test, its not about the joy of learning that is whats going to carry people through their lives. Jim Green with the Homosassa River Alliance was critical of the Legislatures stance on environmental issues and urged it to restore annual funding to Florida Forever. Following the speakers, rally participants waved their signs mostly critical of Scott to motorists on State Road 44. According to its website, the middle-class oriented movement dates back to 2011 when Progress Florida, Florida Watch Action and America Votes joined together in response to actions by Gov.

ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerWhen it comes to celebrities, Floridas Beverly Hills may give the otherBeverly Hills a run for its money. Seven-year-old Matthew Erinn Munro could be Americas next child star, as he was just named the male winner of PETA Kids 2014 Cutest Vegan Kids contest on Tuesday. PETA, short for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, is an animal-rights organization. A vegan is someone who doesnt consume animal-derived foods or use products manufactured with animal byproducts meat, fish, dairy, eggs, leather, etc. Munro competed against dozens of children 12 and younger across the country for the Cutest Vegan Kids title. He won a prize pack and was selected to star in his own advertisement for veganism. His selection was based on three factors: votes, animal-rights enthusiasm and attractiveness. Theres nothing cuter than kindness, and Matthew who helps animals every chance he gets, both by choosing crueltyfree vegan meals and by speaking up for dogs and cats in his neighborhood is as cute as they come, said PETA director of youth outreach and campaigns Marta Holmberg in a press release. All of PETA Kids entrants are winners because they make the world a better place for animals every time they sit down to eat. In his submission, Munro explained that he was raised vegan and believes that animals are friends not food. He claims to be the unofficial caretaker of all cats and dogs in his neighborhood. He feeds, bathes and walks his neighbors animal companions and is always encouraging families to treat dogs and cats with love and care, according to the news release. Im vegan because God put animals on Earth for us to enjoy their beauty, grace and brilliance, Munros online entry states. Theyre here for us to love, treasure and adore them not eat them. Being a vegan, he enjoys asparagus, blueberries and other fresh fruits. He also enjoys vegan cakes, brownies and ice cream. Munro takes care of his own familys rescued cats, including a formerly starving, neglected kitten he took in and nursed back to health. When he is not playing with his animal friends, he enjoys practicing BMX tricks on his bike and mudding on his ATV.Around theSTATE Citrus CountyAttorney to speak to Citrus County CouncilActing County Attorney Kerry Parsons will be the guest speaker at next weeks meeting of the Citrus County Council (CCC), a citizens watchdog group.

Deputies shot Lew Tyree, 41, early Tuesday in a suburb near Tampa. A sheriffs spokeswoman said the man had burned his clothes, cut a cat with a butcher knife and then charged at arriving deputies while holding the knife and a 20-pound barbell. She said the deputies tried to calm the man. When that didnt work, they tried using a stun gun on him. From staff and wire reports From theCAPITAL GI Bill marches through HouseTALLAHASSEE A proposal that envisions Florida marching point in a state version of the post-World War II GI Bill sped through the House on the opening day of the annual legislative session. The Florida GI Bill (HB 7015), a priority of House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz, was approved unanimously Tuesday in the House. The issue now will move to the Senate, where it also is expected pass easily. The bill would increase educational aid for veterans and National Guard members, increase funding to upgrade the states National Guard facilities and buy land around U.S. military bases. Also, it would set up a non-profit to attract more veterans to Florida. The House proposal would cost the state at least $33.5 million in the next fiscal year. Rep. Jimmie T. Smith, an Inverness Republican and Desert Storm veteran who spearheaded the House version, said the legislation is intended to attract more veterans who will eventually become business owners and community leaders.Higher speed limit bill makes first pass A bill that could result in speed limits reaching 75 mph on some Florida roads was steered around opposition from the auto club AAA on Tuesday as the measure made its first House appearance. The House Transportation & Highway Safety Subcommittee voted 13-1 to support the measure (HB 761), which would direct the state Department of Transportation to determine the safe minimum and maximum speed limits on all divided highways that have least four lanes. Senate Transportation Chairman Jeff Brandes, RSt. Petersburg, who along with Sen. Jeff Clemens, DLake Worth, is sponsoring the Senate companion (SB 392), told the panel the bill doesnt raise the posted limits, but gives engineers from the state agency more leeway in setting speeds. Floridas highways have had a 70 mph maximum since 1996, the last time the speed limit was reviewed The Senate version is scheduled to appear Wednesday in committee.

LASKO/For the ChronicleGerard Walen, editor of beerinflorida.com, assistant to Fran Copp of Copp Winery & Brewery and author of the book Florida Breweries, tests an original beer by Copp. The beer, Double Black Stout, won Copp a bronze medal in the 2013 Best Florida Beer Championship. Walen, who started working for Copp in January, says he enjoys his work. Where else can you go to work with a glass of beer in your hand? Author has a head for featuring his favorite fermentations NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerCRYSTAL RIVERIts a tough job, but someones got to do it. Gerard Walen, Crystal River-based author of the soon-to-be-released Florida Breweries and also the editor of BeerInFlorida.com and RoadTripsForBeer.com, spends his days visiting craft breweries and sampling their brews and writing about them. Walen, a former reporter and editor for The Tampa Tribuneand the Sarasota HeraldTribune, has found a way to combine his love for beer with his love for writing. Craft brewing has been around for years, but the modern craft beer movement came out in the open in the early 1980s when the law banning home brewing was repealed, he said. He added that today craft beer brewing and drinking is a cultural movement, with people seeking the uniqueness and individuality of small batches. The movement is characterized by experimentation and originality. I dont like passing judgment on a particular beer, because what I like you might not like, and what you like I might not like, he said. Although he did say that he once tasted a Scottish beer called The End of History with a whopping 52 (or more) percent alcohol content that was served with the bottle inside a taxidermied roadkill animal. It tasted like burnt tires, he said. Even so, hes not a beer critic. Instead, he travels to various breweries and writes about a variety of things. It could be the people who own them, the building or the beer itself. As a journalist, he looks to bring back the best story he can. One of the hardest parts of what I do, I get to a place and get a bunch of samples and take a few sips of each. But then I have to leave a lot of good beer behind because I have to get on to the next place, he said. He said he went to four breweries in one day in Jacksonville. I was exhausted, he said. I wasnt drunk, but I was exhausted. People laugh when I say the job can be tough. After he left the Sarasota Herald-Tribunein 2009, he was hired as editor of the national online travel magazine Road Trips for Beer. As he started networking with craft brewers and beer bloggers, he learned of other states brewery guidebooks that had been published. I started thinking, Why cant I write a book about breweries in Florida? I signed the contract in June 2012, he said. Release date of Florida Breweries is April 1 and the book launch party is Thursday, April 3, at Copp Winery and Brewery in Crystal River, with another on Thursday, April 17, at Burkes of Ireland, also in Crystal River. I love the craft beer community, Walen said. Its one of the few industries where the people in it are collaborative, not competitive. ...

Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield said two of the five unreleased video clips depict the singers genitalia during a urine test for drugs at the Miami Beach Police Department. Altfield agreed with lawyers for Bieber, who turned 20 on Saturday, that the videos airing would be an invasion of privacy that outweighed the publics right to know. Mr. Biebers right to privacy is paramount, the judge said. He has not lost his right to privacy, and that is what is important here. Attorneys for The Associated Press and other news outlets had previously suggested any sensitive portions be blacked out and the rest released under Floridas liberal open records laws. Much of the footage was released last week, some of them showing Bieber walking unsteadily during a sobriety test. Bieber has pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence, resisting arrest and driving with an expired license. A trial date has not been set. Fantasy of Flight in Florida to closePOLK CITY An aviationthemed attraction thats famous for its collection of aircraft and for a plane next to Interstate 4 in between Tampa and Orlando is closing. Fantasy of Flight will close to the public on April 6. Owner Kermit Weeks said the attraction will refocus its emphasis on its private event business and the design and development of a new future destination attraction. Weeks is a former aerobatics champion and aircraft designer who built Fantasy of Flight in part to house his collection.

George Billy Conquest, 74HERNANDOGeorge William Billy Conquest went to sleep March 2, 2014, to awake on Gods Celestial Shore (with a fishing rod in his hand and a bucket full of bait). As a professed believer and lover of Christ, his soul now rests with Jesus. George was Baptist by faith. He was born in Pensacola, Fla., April 13, 1939, and died in Hernando, Fla., March 2, 2014. George is survived by his wife of 19 years, Kathie Conquest; and his two daughters, Lisa Pelliter and Kimberly Jackson of North Carolina; many grandchildren; greatgrandchildren; nephews; a niece; and cousins in Pensacola. He was preceded in death by his parents, George Edgar and Alice Aletha Lete (Sinnott) Conquest; stepfather, William Robert Nelson; and sister, Carolyn Arlene Drew. George grew up in Pensacola and attended Catholic High and Pensacola High and graduated from Pensacola State College. He attended University of Iowa. He was a pioneer in automated data processing, working in the automotive and publishing industry in Walled Lake, Mich., Great Falls, Mont., and finally in Iowa. He was called on by IBM and others to teach their clients advanced database structures. He spent most of his life and career as an educator, mentor and director of computer technologies at Southeastern Community College in Burlington, Iowa. He and Kathie were married there on Christmas Eve 1994. George was an avid outdoorsman, hunter, and fisherman and lived to spend time on the water. He achieved Master Marine Captains license status and so is aptly remembered as Captain George. His greatest joy was in cobia fishing, where as a young man, he held state records. George and Kathie retired to enjoy the outdoors near family and friends on beautiful Lake TsalaApopka in Hernando. He enjoyed his boat and fishing trips to the lakes, Crystal River, offshore and particularly Cedar Key. He and Kathie lovingly cared for his parents, who retired there in Hernando until their passing. His wishes were for no services, but for friends and family to remember him in the outdoors. A family get-together will be scheduled at a later time, God Bless Kathie forever, for the loving way she kept him going this last year. Bill we will see you on some morning in the future. The family and friends would like to particularly thank Hospice of Citrus County and other medical professionals in Citrus County. Donations may be made in memoriam to American Diabetes Association, 1701 N. Beauregard St., Alex., VA 22311 or to Hospice of Citrus County, P.O. Box 641270, Beverly Hills, FL 34465.

Associated PressRelieved investors sent stocks sharply higher on Tuesday after Russia pulled troops back from the border of Ukraine. The rally pushed the Standard & Poors 500 index to an all-time high, erasing steep losses from Monday, when investors feared that the confrontation between Russia and Ukraine would escalate or even lead to a war. Traders were relieved when Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered troops participating in military exercises near Ukraine to return to their bases. The S&P 500 rose 28.18 points, or 1.53 percent, to close at 1,873.91. It was the biggest gain for the benchmark index since October. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 227.85 points, or 1.41 percent, to 16,395.88. The Nasdaq composite rose 74.67 points, or 1.75 percent, to 4,351.97. As investors moved back to riskier assets, prices fell for safe-play investments like bonds and gold. Oil prices also fell as the immediate threat of economic sanctions on Russia, a major oil exporter, eased. Traders had also been worried about transportation disruptions in the Black Sea, a major transit point for oil. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.68 percent from 2.60 percent late Monday. In another sign of a greater appetite for risk, the Russell 2000 index of small-company stocks set another all-time high after posting the biggest percentage gains of the major U.S. stock indexes. The Russell jumped 32.29 points, or 2.7 percent, to 1,208.65. It is now up almost 3.9 percent this year. The two-day rout and rally was just the latest twist in a volatile year for stocks, which fell almost 6 percent just last month and have since recovered to set all-time highs in recent days. So what is an investor supposed to do in the face of this volatility? Now might be the time to revisit whether you have the investments you want, given the markets rise and volatility, said Stephen J. Carl, head equity trader at The Williams Capital Group. Maybe take some positions off the table, and you hedge yourself a little bit, for the chance that if it does go the other way and there is a downturn, he said. Stock markets in Europe, including Moscow, and Asia recouped much of Mondays losses. Indexes in France and Germany each rose 2.5 percent, and the FTSE 100 in Britain rose 1.7 percent. The gains were extraordinarily broad. Five stocks rose for every one that fell on the New York Stock Exchange. All 10 industry sectors in the S&P 500 index rose. Qualcomm rose $2.48, or 3 percent, to $76.11 after the chipmaker announced a 20 percent increase in its quarterly dividend and added $5 billion to its stock buyback program. Buybacks generally benefit shareholders because they increase the value of remaining shares.

OPINION Page A10WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 2014 Dr. Desai column exceptionalRecently, the Chronicleprinted a special column penned by Dr. Paresh Desai, concerning development of vacant land parcels along County Road 491. It is one of a few exceptional columns I have ever read, that made good, common sense. I thoroughly enjoyed his extraordinary thoughtful composition. This economic/medical corridor during the past few years seems to be evolving by itself without county aid (thank goodness). I need not go into the various attempted schemes that frankly were beyond sensible costs any prudent individual(s) or corporation(s) would have incurred. This dedicated doctor is one of a few businessmen who have led the way during his 30-year residency. I have read his new ventures have provided many well-paying jobs, as well as increasing the countys tax base without any compensation from them)such as tax abatement. His clarification of shovelready sites (natural gas, underground utilities, roads, telecommunications, water systems, and sewers) does more than the wasteful advertising expense to attract businesses to the county. The additional commercial base along this specific corridor will effectively subsidize residential properties, creating desirable employment of new home construction, in various communities throughout the County. Dr. Desais explanation of what occurred during his new construction of Sunflower Springs assisted community in Homosassa was mind boggling. How is it possible a previous owner(s) paid only $625 per year in real estate taxes, while current owners are charged more than $116,000? Thank you Dr. Desai, for your life-long dedication and personal financial contributions to make Citrus County a desirable place to live and raise families. Peter Monteleone Pine Ridge Honda should have built hereI read in todays newspaper that Mexico may soon become the country that produces the most automobiles that are imported into the USA. Seems that Honda is just opening a brand new multibillion dollar manufacturing facility in Mexico. I wonder why this plant was not built in the United States? Could it be because of the unions or the cost of labor in the U.S., or is there another reason? Maybe more than one. I sure would have liked to have seen this facility built right here in Citrus County. Just would like to see any major manufacturing plant located here, but maybe its the impact fee or other reasons that we cant get one.Alfred E. Mason Crystal River One of our favorite political stories took place during Barry Goldwaters presidential campaign in 1964. A friend was standing outside a Goldwater rally when a woman burst from the room, tears streaming down her face. Stop them! he heard her say. Stop those reporters! Theyre writing down every word hes saying! We were reminded of that tale by the curious case of Matt Bevin, a tea party favorite challenging Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky in a Republican primary this spring. In 2008, Bevin was president of Veracity Funds, a money management company, and he signed a letter to his investors praising TARP, the massive federal effort to rescue banks, auto companies and other victims of the economic implosion. That letter, unearthed by Politico, reassured Bevins clients that positive developments like TARP, led by the government, should help to stabilize asset prices and help to ease liquidity constraints in the financial system. The letter added a sharp warning: Dont call it a bailout. That message to Bevins investors was prescient. TARP worked well, and McConnell is right to boast that he voted for it. But Bevin has a problem. The gospel according to the tea party insists that TARP was a bailout, and a failed bailout at that. So he has disowned the letter, saying it was written by an underling. In fact, Bevins camp has accused Politico and McConnell of mounting a smear campaign because they insist on quoting his own words back to him. Stop those reporters! Heres how crazy American politics has become, at least in a Republican Party whipsawed by the tea party. A candidate disavows a letter he wrote in 2008 that was clearly accurate, a letter endorsing a program that was supported by 34 Republican senators and 91 Republican House members, and signed by Republican President George W. Bush. Today that candidate embraces a position that is clearly wrong, just to satisfy the ideological prejudices of his core supporters. Part of the problem is that incessant attacks from the antigovernment right (and the anti-corporate left) have deeply distorted TARPs record. Economist Douglas Elliott of the Brookings Institution calls TARP the best large federal program to be despised by the public. Economic columnist Robert Samuelson of the Washington Postsummed up the evidence this way: One lesson of the financial crisis is this: When the entire financial system succumbs to panic, only the government is powerful enough to prevent a complete collapse. Panics signify the triumph of fear. TARP was part of the process by which fear was overcome. It wasnt the only part, but it was an essential part. The accuracy of that assessment was reinforced just last week when Fannie Mae, the giant agency that guarantees home mortgages, announced it was returning $7.2 billion to the Treasury. Fannie and its cousin Freddie Mac received $187 billion in TARP funds (out of a total outlay of $609 billion), and by next month, they will have paid back every dollar. Their turnaround is not unusual. ProPublica, a public interest journalism center, calculates that as of mid-February, the U.S. Treasury had received back $621 billion in TARP-related funds. Thats a profit of $12 billion with more to come. Of course, not every element of TARP has worked well. A program to help homeowners stave off foreclosures made little impact. And there are legitimate fears that the whole effort sets a bad precedent and could encourage banks and other entities to take poor risks in the future. A special inspector general calls this a heads I win, tails the government bails me out mentality. On balance, however, TARP has been a sizeable success, and not just to the Treasury. Hundreds of thousands of jobs were saved in the auto industry alone. Without federal intervention, says Elliott, the recession we had would have been substantially worse; millions of people would have been out of work. But the tea party refuses to accept those facts and demands fealty to its own distorted version of reality. Thats why Mitt Romney felt compelled to say in 2012 that TARP was the wrong way to go, a misguided statement that helped contribute to his loss in key states like Ohio and Michigan. Now Matt Bevin is facing a similar problem. As a banker, as a hard-headed businessman, he described the world as it is. Today, as a hard-line candidate, he feels compelled to abandon that view and place scripture ahead of statistics. As Romney learned, thats never a good idea.Steve and Cokie Roberts can be contacted by email at email@example.com. Hunger also changes the world when eating cant be a habit, then neither can seeing.Maxine Hong Kingston, 1976 The triumph of TARP CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M.

Not everyone can understand the gnawing fear and uncertainty of not knowing when or where their next meal might come from if it comes at all. And most people dont know that very fear surrounds them every day, hidden behind the faces of their neighbors and strangers they pass on the street. Locally, according to a 2011 study by Feeding the Children, a national nonprofit group that combats childhood hunger, 15.2 percent of Citrus County suffers from food insecurity, resulting in 21,480 hungry people. That number is staggering. But its not all doom and gloom. There is a light at the end of that tunnel. And its the Community Food Bank of Citrus County that is shining bright. The Community Food Bank serves 38 local agencies that have food pantry or feeding programs, from churches to agencies such as Daystar and the Salvation Army. Organizers had a lofty goal when they started the food bank in November 2012 to reach a half-million pounds of food distributed to help feed hungry people in Citrus County. As of last month, the group doubled that number. According to food bank executive director Tom Chancey, 1 million pounds of food equals about 650,000 meals. Imagine what a difference that makes in the lives of the people the food bank serves to know that you wont go hungry today or tomorrow or even the next day. Twice as many people in Citrus County went unafraid and were fed. Food bank organizers and volunteers should be commended for efforts to feed those in need in Citrus County and their dedication to easing food uncertainty for those who live below the poverty level. Also to be recognized are the three Walmart stores, four Winn-Dixie stores and four Publix stores in Citrus County that donate to the organization on a regular basis. And finally, the residents of Citrus County should be thanked for their donations and support, without which the food bank wouldnt be able to reach those in need. Since people cannot get food directly from the food bank, they must go through a local agency such as churches, Daystar and the Salvation Army. When everyone in a community works together, amazing feats can be reached. Lets all work a little harder this year and shoot for 2 million pounds of food. If we all work together, we can make hunger in Citrus County a thing of the past. THE ISSUE:Community Food Bank surpasses goal.OUR OPINION:Community should be commended for feeding the hungry.

I watch this happen and then watch these people get into some old, beat-up car thats falling apart and I see why they could care less about other peoples cars.

Memory care Short term and long term stays 000H7TG 000HED3 guns to gambling although there are signs that some contentious issues may get sidestepped during an election year. Lawmakers are also expected to pass a tax cut package of $500 million being sought by Gov. Rick Scott. The Republicancontrolled Legislature is not expected to repeal stand your ground despite the ongoing protests. The law allows people to use deadly force if they feel threatened. Instead of repealing it, they are likely to pass a bill that would allow people who fire warning shots to avoid lengthy prison sentences. The bill was partially inspired by Marissa Alexander, who was sentenced to 20 years for firing a gun near her estranged husband. Alexanders conviction was thrown out by an appeals court and she is scheduled to have a new trial. The states two legislative leaders on the opening day touted their own proposals to expand the use of private school vouchers and to restrict retirement benefits for future public employees. Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weatherford contend its a move needed to help stabilize the pension plan in the future, but it has divided the Legislature and its unclear if it will pass. While the two leaders concur on vouchers and changes to the state pension, they are divided on whether to let qualified Florida students pay instate college tuition rates even if they are in the country illegally. Its an issue several states are grappling with. Weatherford said in his opening day speech that it was hurting kids to force them to pay higher tuition rates if they were brought to the United States illegally by their parents. It makes no sense fiscally, it makes no sense economically, and it makes no sense morally, Weatherford said. Because we should never punish a child for the mistakes of their parents. Similar proposals have been considered in the last decade, but they have never passed. Gaetz has already said he is opposed to the proposal, although the Republican senator pushing the bill maintains he has enough voters right now to pass the bill. LAWSContinued from Page A1 Scott in November, he placed blame on his predecessor for Floridas hard times. Florida was in a hole. Unemployment was above 11 percent, more than one million people in Florida were out of work. Our debt ballooned to more than $28 billion, Scott said during the 30-minute speech. Some say these statistics were because of a global recession. They say it doesnt matter who was running our state that anyone would just have been a victim of the times. I disagree. The speech reflected more on Scotts accomplishments than it laid out a vision for the final year of his first term. It also introduced a new catchphrase that will likely be used in his re-election. Scott campaigned with the slogan lets get to work and last year proclaimed its working in his State of the State speech. This year he said Lets keep working several times in the speech that marks the opening of the Legislatures 60-day session. Unlike the previous administration which lost almost 1 million jobs, weve added almost a half a million jobs in three years, Scott said. Working together, we have made Florida not just a destination for tourists, but a destination for opportunity. Scott cited 24 tax cuts and the elimination of nearly 3,000 regulations since he took office as examples of how Florida has become more businessfriendly. He said state debt is down, and government has become more efficient under his watch. Four years ago people were down on Florida. High unemployment, shrinking home values Florida was in retreat, Scott said. Now, we are on the rise. Jobs are coming back, career opportunities are growing, home values are improving and there is simply no reason that Florida cannot be the number one state in the country to find a good job, raise a family and achieve the American dream. Scott urged lawmakers to continue cutting taxes by another $500 million this year, including a rollback of vehicle registration fees that were increased under Crist and further cutting corporate income taxes. He also criticized laws passed under Crist that allowed state universities to increase tuition and asked lawmakers to keep tuition from rising this year. The speech sounded more like a case for Scotts re-election rather than an outline of his session priorities. This was his reelection speech, said Sen. Jeff Clemens, D-Lake Worth, who said Scott cant take credit for Floridas recovery. Our job growth is no greater than New York or California. Were in the middle of a national recovery, not a state recovery. Republican legislators praised Scott for his focus on tax cuts and the economy. SCOTTContinued from Page A1 Associated PressGov. Rick Scott makes a point during his State of the State speech Tuesday on the floor of the House of Representatives.
Associated PressMOSCOW Stepping back from the brink of war, Vladimir Putin talked tough but cooled tensions in the Ukraine crisis in his first comments since its president fled, saying Tuesday that Russia has no intention to fight the Ukrainian people but reserved the right to use force. As the Russian president held court in his personal residence, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met with Kievs fledgling government and Moscow agreed to sit down with NATO. Although nerves remained on edge in Crimea, with Russian troops firing warning shots to ward off Ukrainian soldiers, global markets catapulted higher on tentative signals that the Kremlin was not seeking to escalate the conflict. Kerry brought moral support and a $1 billion aid package to a Ukraine fighting to fend off bankruptcy. Lounging in an arm-chair before Russian tricolor flags, Putin delivered a characteristic performance filled with earthy language, macho swagger and sarcastic jibes, accusing the West of promoting an unconstitutional coup in Ukraine. At one point, he compared the U.S. role to an experiment with lab rats. But the overall message appeared to be one of de-escalation. It seems to me (Ukraine) is gradually stabilizing, Putin said. We have no enemies in Ukraine. Ukraine is a friendly state. He tempered those comments by warning that Russia was willing to use all means at our disposal to protect ethnic Russians in the country. Significantly, Russia agreed to a NATO request to hold a special meeting to discuss Ukraine on Wednesday in Brussels, opening up a possible diplomatic channel in a conflict that still holds monumental hazards and uncertainties. While the threat of military confrontation retreated somewhat Tuesday, both sides ramped up economic feuding in their struggle over Ukraine. Russia hit its nearly broke neighbor with a termination of discounts on natural gas, while the U.S. announced a $1 billion aid package in energy subsidies to Ukraine. We are going to do our best (to help you). We are going to try very hard, Kerry said upon arriving in Kiev. We hope Russia will respect the election that you are going to have. Ukraines finance minister, who has said Ukraine needs $35 billion to get through this year and next, was meeting Tuesday with officials from the International Monetary Fund. World stock markets, which slumped the previous day, clawed back a large chunk of their losses Tuesday on signs that Russia was backpedaling. Gold, the Japanese yen and U.S. treasuries all seen as safe havens returned some of their gains. Russias RTS index, which fell 12 percent on Monday rose 6.2 percent Tuesday. In the U.S., the Dow Jones industrial average was up 1.2 percent. Confidence in equity markets has been restored as the standoff between Ukraine and Russia is no longer on red alert, said David Madden, market analyst at IG.

RadioShack to close 1,100 stores NEW YORK There will soon be about 1,100 fewer places to buy batteries. RadioShack said Tuesday that it plans to close up to 1,100 stores, or about a fifth of its U.S. locations. The news came as the retailer reported a wider quarterly loss after a disap pointing holiday season. Its stock tumbled 16 percent in afternoon trading. CEO Joseph Magnacca said the closings would leave the company with more than 4,000 U.S. stores. Thats still far more than Best Buy, which has roughly 1,400 U.S. locations, and makes RadioShack stores nearly as common as Walmart. RadioShack didnt immediately identify which stores will close or how many jobs would be affected. One killed in NJ explosionEWING, N.J. Authorities said one resident was killed in an explosion in a New Jersey housing development that also injured seven workers. Police said the blast happened Tuesday after a gas line was damaged by contractors who were digging in the area. At least one town home was destroyed in the Trenton suburb of Ewing and 55 others damaged.Gold discovery spurs theoriesLOS ANGELES Word last week that a California couple found $10 million in gold coins on their property has set off a Gold Rush of theories over who left behind all that cash. One is that Jesse James gang deposited it in hopes of someday financing a second Civil War. Another claims the coins originally belonged to stagecoach robber Black Bart. The theory gaining the most traction this week is that the hoard is made up of most of the $30,000 in gold coins that Walter Dimmick stole from the U.S. Mint in San Francisco in 1901. But Mint spokesman Adam Stump said Tuesday the government has done its research and cant link the couples coins to the theft.House passes bill on flood insuranceWASHINGTON The House approved legislation Tuesday night to roll back a recently enacted overhaul of the federal flood insurance program, after homeowners in flood-prone areas complained about sharp premium increases. The bill would allow sellers to pass along their subsidized, below-market insurance rates to new buyers and lower the limit on how much flood insurance premiums can rise each year. The measure was approved 306-91. The bill now goes to the Senate, which passed a measure in January delaying implementation of the insurance overhaul by four years.

Militants kill 11 people in NigeriaMAIDUGURI, Nigeria Officials said Islamic militants burned 11 people to death inside their homes in northeastern Nigeria, where frequent attacks have claimed at least 130 lives in the past four days alone. The attack late Monday on Jakana village in Borno state occurred about 6 miles from a village where 39 people were slaughtered on Saturday, said Nigerian Senator Ahmed Zannah. Officials and residents blame the attacks on Boko Haram, an Islamic insurgent group that has killed thousands of people in the past four and a half years. Zannah said Tuesday that residents in Jakana had been warned of an attack, and many there and in neighboring villages had fled into the bush before the gunfire began. The victims, he said, were all too old to flee.Chinese plead with CanadaBEIJING Chinese millionaires on Tuesday pleaded for the Canadian government not to throw away the immigration applications of thousands of Chinese nationals. At a news conference, 10 investor applicants delivered their crestfallen message that their faith in Canada as a trustworthy country, with its attractive rule of law, environment and welfare system, was wavering. Last month, Canada announced its intention to terminate its immigrant investor program and eliminate the longstanding backlog of applications amounting to more than 65,000 people, most of whom are Chinese. It said immigrant investors pay less in taxes than other immigrants and are less likely to stay in Canada over the medium to long term. Investor applicants, some of whom had applied five years ago, said they were discussing their options with lawyers in Canada and whether to claim compensation for the years they had been waiting. Program applicants had to have a net worth of 1.6 million Canadian dollars ($1.4 million) and invest 400,000 Canadian dollars, or 800,000 if they applied after 2010, which would be returned after about five years without interest. World BRIEFS From wire reports Obama lists 2015 budget Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama sent Congress a $3.9 trillion budget Tuesday that would funnel money into road building, education and other economy-bolstering programs, handing Democrats a playbook for their election-year themes of creating jobs and narrowing the income gap between rich and poor. The blueprint for fiscal 2015, which begins Oct.1, is laden with populist proposals designed to fortify those goals. It includes new spending for preschool education and job training, expanded tax credits for 13.5million low-income workers without children and more than $1trillion in higher taxes over the next decade, mostly for the wealthiest Americans. As a country, weve got to make a decision if were going to protect tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans or if were going to make smart investments necessary to create jobs and grow our economy and expand opportunity for every American, Obama told students at an elementary school in the nations capital. With an eye in part on job creation, money would be spent to upgrade highways and railroads, Veterans Affairs hospitals and national parks. Additional funds would be aimed at clean energy research, creating 45 public-private manufacturing institutes for spurring innovation and training workers whose companies have closed or moved. To help pay for those initiatives and others and trim federal deficits as well, Obama relies in part on higher revenue. He would raise $651billion by limiting tax deductions for the nations highest earners and with a Buffett tax named for billionaire Warren Buffett slapping minimum levies on the highestearning people. Taxes would also be raised on large estates, financial institutions, tobacco products, airline passengers and managers of private investment funds. Congress has ignored those revenue proposals and many of Obamas spending ideas before. With the entire House and one-third of the Senate facing re-election in November, campaign-year pressures and gridlock between the Democratic-led Senate and Republican dominated House all but ensure that few of the presidents initiatives will go far. The president has offered perhaps his most irresponsible budget yet, said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, who has participated in two failed rounds of deficit-reduction talks with Obama since 2011. American families looking for jobs and opportunity will find only more government in this plan. Lawmakers press admin, again, on pot rules Associated PressWASHINGTON A senior U.S. drug enforcement official urged Congress and others Tuesday not to abandon scientific concerns over marijuana in favor of public opinion to legalize it, even as the Obama administration takes a hands-off approach in states where voters have made legal its sale and use. The deputy administrator for the Drug Enforcement Administration, Thomas Harrigan, testified Tuesday before a House oversight panel that easing laws governing marijuana threatens U.S. institutions. We should not abandon science and fact in favor of public opinion, Harrigan said. He echoed previous testimony from James Capra, DEAs chief of operations, who told a Senate panel in January that going down the path to legalization in this country is reckless and irresponsible. The subcommittee chairman, Rep. John Mica, R-Fla., said the country is in a state of conflict and chaos right now over U.S. marijuana policy. In an election year that could tip the balance of power in Congress, some Republicans have accused the White House of cherry-picking which federal laws to enforce. The administration has said it continues to pursue dangerous criminals, but Obama himself last month in an interview declared marijuana no more dangerous than alcohol and contrasted it with harder drugs including cocaine and methamphetamine. Federal law is unambiguous: Marijuana is among the most dangerous drugs, it has no medicinal value and its illegal in the United States. Its a stance supported generally by the presidents Office of National Drug Control Policy. But the Justice Department has made clear it wont interfere with businesses in states where marijuanas sale or use has been made legal so long as everyone adheres to state law and the industry is taxed and regulated.

Frazier hits UF record 11 3s in teams SEC rout Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. Michael Frazier II got one directive from his Florida teammates against South Carolina whenever he saw daylight on the court, let the ball fly. The result was a school-record 11 3-pointers the most ever in a Southeastern Conference game and career-high 37 points as Frazier helped the top-ranked Gators move a game away from a perfect SEC regular season with a 72-46 victory over South Carolina on Tuesday night. They told me if I got a crack to let it go, Frazier said. That was the easy part for Frazier, the sophomore who frequently found himself open and made the Gamecocks pay. Somehow, some way we didnt express to our players that Michael Frazier can shoot the basketball, South Carolina coach Frank Martin said. The Gators (28-2, 17-0 SEC) are a game away from going undefeated in the SEC, something no team not named Kentucky has accomplished since Alabamas 14-0 run in 1956. Florida coach Billy Donovan shrugged that off, preaching his players will take the same approach to Saturdays Senior Day meetings with the Wildcats as they have each game all season. I still think theres things in front of this team, he said. We cant get wrapped up in the moment. Fraziers performance topped the 1986 mark of Floridas Joe Lawrence, who had nine against California. It was also the most ever in a league contest, although Rotnei Clarke hit 13 in 2010 and Alex Dillard made 12 in 1994 but both Arkansas players did it against nonconference opponents. Frazier didnt feel anything special in warm-ups, but knew he was onto something with his five 3-pointers in the first half. In the second half, it was Frazier who broke things open with four 3s during a 23-5 run after the Gamecocks (11-19, 4-13) had cut a double-digit lead to 39-35. No other Gator reached double digits in points. Mindaugus Kacinas had 12 points to lead South Carolina, which was coming off a win over Kentucky. Frazier blew past his old career best of 21 points set earlier this season against Texas A&M. He was 11 of 18 from 3-point range while the rest of the Gators were 0 of 13. The Gators built an 11-point lead early in the second half but Brenton Williams had a fourpoint play and followed with a 3-pointer to get the Gamecocks within 39-35 with 13:05 left. But Frazier connected on a 3, Young had a three-point play and the rout was on.

The Lady Panthers made quick work of the Lady Pirates winning in a 7-0 shutout while the Crystal River boys overtook Lecanto 5-2. The score in the boys meet was the exact opposite result of when the two schools met in Lecanto on Feb. 7, while the Lady Panthers repeated another shutout. It was the opposite the last time, which is interesting, Lecanto boys head coach Jack Hall said of the loss. Crystal River has very much improved since the last time we played. Theyve done a great job of getting ready for districts. Crystal River put together three of their five points early in the meet by winning the No. 2, 3, and 4 singles quickly, but it was the No. 5 seeded singles match between the Pirates Ryan Grant and Lecantos Chris Kaufman that decided the meet. Grant and Kaufman battled for close to two hours before the match was decided Grant in two sets 6-4, 6-2 and Crystal River sealed the meet victory. No. 1 singles went Lecantos way (the only singles win for the Panthers in the meet) as Rishi Gurnani swept through straight sets 6-0, 6-0 over Crystal Rivers Matt Allen. Ryan Johnson nabbed a point for the Pirates in No. 2 singles after pushing Lecantos Dhruv Patel to a three-set tiebreaker. Johnson won 7-5, 1-6, 10-5. The Pirates won No. 3 and 4 singles with Crystal Rivers Ben Epstein and Matt White besting Lecantos Marshall King and Rio Lumapas in two sets for two match points. Epstein won 6-3, 6-4 while White won 7-5, 6-0, respectively. In doubles, the two teams played pro-sets. Lecanto managed to win its second and last point of the meet in No. 1 doubles as the Panther duo of Gurnani and Patel won 8-3 over Crystal Rivers Allen and Johnson. No. 2 doubles went the Pirates way Spring tourney nearly here The organizers would like to ask for your help to spread the word, no matter if you plan to play in this tournament or not.

And then he followed that with his highest score ever in the Masters, the ultimate measure of Woods these days. Now what? Making predictions about the worlds No. 1 player is like gauging the wind at Amen Corner. Youre bound to get it wrong for three reasons:Only an athlete knows how badly he is hurt. Golf is too unpredictable under the best of times. Hes Tiger Woods. NBC Sports analyst Johnny Miller got it right at the start of the year when he was talking about which players might have big years. He stopped short of naming a list of players because of reason No. 2. And then he added this nugget: It was pretty easy to predict Tiger there for a while, Miller said. These days, about all anyone can safely predict about Woods is that hell wear a red shirt on Sunday. Assuming he makes it to Sunday. In two starts on the PGA Tour this year, Woods is measured by letters instead of numbers. He had an MDF at Torrey Pines, which is the tours acronym for players who miss the 54-hole cut. And he had a WD at the Honda Classic when he withdrew after 13 holes on the final round Sunday. The question now is how long he will be MIA. The leaders were finishing up the front nine when attention shifted from the golf course to the PGA National parking lot that suddenly was swarming with police. Some two dozen reporters and photographers were waiting for Woods. He finally showed up in a white passenger van, changed out of his shoes and then was driven off in a black Mercedes-Benz to his home just north on Jupiter Island. Just like last time just like always only Woods knows the amount of the pain and the degree of the injury. He said through spokesman Glenn Greenspan that he felt lower back problems with spasms as he was warming up Sunday morning. On the third hole, he hit a tee shot so far to the right that it wound up in a water hazard to the left of the sixth green. And when he played the sixth hole, he pulled his tee shot into the water. Six holes into the final round, Woods already was 5 over for the day and 12 shots out of the lead. He said he would get treatment every day to calm it down. As for playing next week at Doral, he said he would wait until Thursday to see how it feels. The Blue Monster is more blue than ever after a redesign ordered by new owner Donald Trump. Woods is the defending champion at the Cadillac Championship, though the course where he has won four times is not what it used to be. But this isnt about whether he can play Doral or Bay Hill two weeks later, or how he will fare at Augusta National next month. The injuries are starting to pile up since he returned from the chaos in his personal life. Woods had two WDs on his professional record through 2009. One was at Pebble Beach in 1998 when he chose not to return after a seven-month rain delay to finish. The other was in 2006 at Riviera when he made the cut and then withdrew the next morning with the flu. Tiger Woods

Iowa State (22-7, 10-7), in the mix for the No. 2 seed in next weeks Big 12 tournament, lost its second road game in four days.

Section CWEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE ERYNWORTHINGTON Staff writerAT102 YEARSOLD, ETHELPUCKETTWINNHASSPENTNEARLYHER ENTIRELIFEINCITRUSCOUNTY.She graduated from Citrus High School with the class of 1930 and is the oldest living alumnus still in Citrus County. Her class was the first to attend high school in Inverness in the 10th grade prior to that, only 11thand 12th-grade Floral City students went to CHS. Winn was also one of 10 kids in her family. All 10 of the Puckett siblings graduated from CHS, and four of the sisters Ethel, Fannie, Louise and Lois went on to be educators. She began teaching in 1931 while attending the University of Florida during the summers. Her first teaching job was on Western Island at Roschell School, a job she had to get to by boat. She retired from teaching in 1979, and then served as principal of adult education until she retired again in 1987. Recently, the Chronicle sat down with Winn and Superintendent of School Sandra Sam Himmel. During her interview she recalled her memories of the countys history. Here is a written statement from Winn of her memory of Citrus Countys school history: I was born in Ocala and came to Floral City at the age of 18 months and have been a resident of Citrus County since. I went to the four room school in Floral City through the ninth grade. My class was the first 10th grade to go to high school in Inverness because before that just 11th and 12th graders went before. I have known much about the school system since my twin sisters graduated in 1925 with 17 members all had to go to Inverness and one sister 1926. Graduations were held in brick building that is now being used by Citrus Memorial Hospital. I graduated Inverness High School with two year teacher training in high school and started teaching Feb. 2, 1931. I went to University of Florida in summers. I received my associates degree in 1938, bachelors in 1944 and masters in 1952. Our county history dates back to 1846, one year after Florida was admitted to the union. It was named Citrus County in 1887. Hundreds of acres were planted in Citrus but in 1884-85 freeze wiped out most. Phosphate mining, farming, turpentine, seafood, etc were early industries in the county. Due to phosphate mines in Floral City, it was the largest town. They had a high school until 1920. Then the students all over the county had to go to high school in Inverness until 1924. We had the following schools in the county when I started teaching: New Hope, Cold Bend, Pleasant Grove, Floral City, Inverness, Hernando, Holder, Lecanto, Crystal River, Homosassa, Oak Grove, Roschell, Citronelle, Red Level and Citra. The first formal schools in Citrus County were built in 1880. There were one room wooden buildings in each little settlement. Ozello had a school in 1880 and Homosassa one in 1882. They were both built on islands before there were bridges to the mainland. Schools lasted just five months and teachers earned $25 to $40 per month. Only high school diplomas were required. Floral City, being the largest town in the county, their high school lasted until 1920. Then all of the county students had to go to Inverness in 11th and 12th grades. Floral Citys first house was two stories one room downstairs and one upstairs and was moved and used for Masonic building for years. During the boom a larger one was built but had to be torn down. WPA built where the site is now with much added. K-5th graders were housed there. Inverness first school was of wood structure. Then a high school containing all grades in the building where Citrus Memorial Hospital is using now. Then built a new high school face highway 41 where checkers is now. It came unsafe and a new one was built where the location is now. Fire destroyed most of it during the night Feb. 5, 1985. It has been enlarged and also a primary school built by it. The middle school was moved out of the back building and moved to the Booker T. Washington black school where it is now. In 1934s a brick two story building was built in Homosassa housing 1-8 grades. It was later burned but a short time later it was replaced on the same site. Crystal River School added a gym. Lecanto School had only 10 students. They were sent to Crystal River in 1954. Enrollment increased in C.R. two story building had 9-12th grade and a building built by WPA was used for K8th graders. In 1966-67 a new building and 2 wings of 6 class rooms each. The year before four 3rd grade and two 4th grade classes were held in Methodist Church. They were bused each day and brought back for lunch. I was one of the 3rd grade teachers. In 1968-69 new High Sch. was opened. Then C.R. had a primary, middle and high school. Inverness was classed the same way. I became prin. of primary for 4 years. In Oct. of the 1968, our county integrated. I had k-4, 5 of 6th to middle school. I had to send 4 Ks and 2 second classes to Carver. In the Meantime Inv. Middle School went to the black school. In the meantime integration had taken over. Enrollments increased and many new personnel were added, lunchrooms, libraries and many others. All black schools were closed, moved or razed except Inv. and C.R. where they were renovated, enlarged, etc. The transfers were made smoothly under capable leadership and growth continued. In 1970s a large tract of land about 50 acres was acquired in Lecanto. Plans for a large plant to house three schools. Primary opened in the fall of 1979 after Lecanto had not had a school since 1954. Middle school opened in 1982. High school opened in 1984. We now have CFCC near the plant. Our Co. Supt. Roger Weaver was the one that planned and carried out the construction and it was named the Roger Weaver Complex. The Marine Science station was opened in 1970. 1968 Teacher walk out 5 doz. teachers walked out but board rehired them July 10. Voc. Tech School in Inverness 1970. Schools for retarded and handicap went to Oak Hill and later in Hernando but have a beautiful school in the Weaver Complex. A new elementary school in Hernando off road 486. A new primary and middle school in Citrus Springs. A new elementary schools near Beverly Hills, Forest Ridge and one near Holder, Central Ridge and Rock Crusher. The Renaissance Center and CREST have building in the Weaver Complex.

Today, men and women of nearly every nationality compete in professional leagues all over the world. But the National Basketball Association (NBA) wasnt formed until 1949. In the 1920s and 1930s, teams in the United States traveled from town to town without the structure of a league, playing other teams for the entertainment of the townspeople. This type of play is called barnstorming. One special team formed in 1926 in Chicago and later became known as the Harlem Globetrotters. This week, The Mini Page learns more about this historical barnstorming basketball team thats still entertaining fans today.White players only Many early barnstorming teams did not allow African-American players. A group of friends who had graduated from Chicagos all-black Wendell Phillips High School got a team together and played at the Savoy Ballroom there. They called themselves the Savoy Big Five. But it was difficult for the team to book, or arrange, games because they werent very well known. Their manager asked for help from a white youth league coach, Abe Saperstein.Separate teams Some of the best early basketball teams were segregated, or divided by their race or ethnic background. For example, teams of Jewish, Irish, Swedish and Chinese players barnstormed on the East Coast and beyond. People living outside of large cities were interested in seeing people of other races. Remember, they didnt have television or the Internet to show them other parts of the world. Barnstorming teams gave audiences a glimpse of a world beyond their reach.

Al Runt Pullins is sitting down. Saperstein later renamed the team the Harlem Globetrotters. He thought the reference to the New York neighborhood would let people know that the team was AfricanAmerican and would seem exotic to audiences in smaller cities.photo courtesy Harlem Globetrotters An early basketballRough basketball Words that remind us of the Harlem Globetrotters are hidden below.

On the Web : At the library: from The Mini Page 2014 Universal UclickTrotters Take Off The Harlem Globetrotters record in their third year was 151 wins and 13 losses, but the team still struggled to make money and pay the players. Times were hard, and people didnt have much extra money for entertainment. But the team stayed together. In many towns where they played, hotels and restaurants wouldnt serve the black players. Sometimes they had to sleep in Sapersteins car.Using humor If the team felt too much racial tension during a game, they might start clowning around to try to make people laugh. For instance, in a tense game in Canada, Globetrotter tossed the ball high in the air and let it land on the back of his neck, then roll down his arm. The crowd, which had started out angry, ended up laughing.Globetrotting milestones Bob Karstens becomes the first Caucasian player on the Harlem Globetrotters.

This would make them more popular with opposing teams, who might invite them back.Serious basketball But it wasnt all fun and games for the Globetrotters. They wanted to win. In 1940, the Globetrotters beat the Chicago Bruins by just one basket in overtime during the finals of the second World Professional Basketball Tournament in Chicago. The win helped make the team famous. Bob Karstens Lynette Woodard photos courtesy Harlem Globetrotters In 1950, the Globetrotters began their first international tour.

MP: What made you want to be a Harlem Globetrotter? Buckets: I was a huge fan as a kid. I went to see them when I was around 5 years old, but mostly I saw I played in Europe after college, and the Globetrotters called me. Ive been playing with them for 12 years. MP: When you interact with kids in the audience, how do you know who to pick? Buckets see them on the sidelines dancing. Theyre just ready to be pulled onto the court or to sit on the bench with us.Off the court The Globetrotters may be famous for the clowning they do on the court, but theyre also known as ambassadors* of goodwill. In each city where they play, team members visit schools and hospitals to share positive messages and enthusiasm with kids. They also hold summer skills clinics for children. Globetrotter programs include: The ABCs of Bullying Prevention A = Action B = Bravery C = Compassion C.H.E.E.R. for Character C = Cooperation H = Healthy mind and body E = Effort E = Enthusiasm R = Responsibility S.P.I.N. (Some Playtime Is Necessary) to promote fitness for kids. Smile Patrol. Players visit hospitals and see how many smiles they can get from young patients. MP: What do you love most about being a Globetrotter? Buckets: Were the most accessible (or friendly) pro sports team in the world. After every game, every player stays to sign autographs. Were on social media, and we visit about 400 schools a year. The Mini Page thanks Anthony Buckets Blakes and Scott Johnson with the Harlem Globetrotters for help with this issue.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH5, 2014 C7CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Sylvester Stallone said, Success is usually the culmination of controlling failure. That does not apply to this deal, where declarer needs to retain trump control for success, not failure. West leads the diamond ace against six hearts. How should South continue? The auction might have gone several ways. North chose to show both of his suits (three clubs was game-forcing), then jumped to five hearts to try to highlight his diamond void and ask for good trumps. Souths three-diamond cue-bid asked his partner to bid three notrump with a diamond stopper. Then, over three spades, he gave preference to clubs. If North had now bid six clubs, he would have made that slam easily, taking three spades, three hearts and six clubs. Also, North could have deduced that South held strong hearts when he did not bid three no-trump. Declarer must resist the temptation of an overtrick. If hearts are breaking 3-2, South can take 16(!) tricks: three spades, five hearts, six clubs and two diamond ruffs in the dummy. But if South ruffs the opening lead on the board and tries to draw trumps by cashing two top hearts immediately, he will fail. Instead, declarer should lead a trump from the board at trick two and play low from his hand. In that way, he retains a heart in the dummy to ruff another diamond, and he can then safely draw trumps before running the clubs. Finally, note that if West had led his singleton spade, South probably would have failed. He would have needed mirrors to get home. The curious can work it out.

I have a slightly different problem, but its in a similar vein. I have a toddler grandson. Maybe Im just oldfashioned, but our daughter-in-law has close to 500 pictures of the boy naked, from birth to his second birthday. She also has videos of him naked in the bathroom, recording him for several minutes while hes getting ready to take his bath. My son and I have talked about this, and he, too, finds this to be odd behavior. A few pictures would be normal, but 500 seems excessive for anyone. Neither of us has talked to her about this. She has since taken the boy and moved out. We do not consider this pornography, but we cannot understand why there are so many photos. Can you help? Concerned Grandmother Dear Grandmother: We would be concerned, too. New parents often take hundreds of pictures of their children, but 500 naked photos and videos is excessive by any standard. Add to that your daughter-in-laws taking the boy and leaving the home, and we worry that she is using these photos for purposes other than a personal record. There may be nothing going on, but your son needs to be vigilant. He should visit with the boy often and not be afraid to ask his wife about the photos and videos. He also should seek legal counsel if they do not reconcile soon. Dear Annie: I am a highly educated individual who speaks English as a second language. Sometimes I have to deal with customers over the telephone. There have been instances in which I have been told, Your English is terrible or Call me back when you learn the language. Its not as if these individuals have a Ph.D. in English. Their grammatical mistakes are horrible. Just because English is their first language does not mean they have finished elementary school. Who are they to pass judgment over foreigners speaking English? Annie, what should people in my situation tell these very rude people? I doubt they understand the meaning of the word xenophobia. There are many hardworking, productive people in this country with an accent. Please tell your readers to try to understand how difficult it is to learn another language and to stop being so disrespectful to us. Sick of Xenophobes in Jeffersonville, Ind. Dear Indiana: Agreed, and we hope our readers are paying attention. These rude people are not commenting on your language skills or your intelligence. They are telling you that your accent is too thick for them to understand what you are saying. Of course, this doesnt excuse them. The polite response when you dont understand someone is, Excuse me. I didnt catch that. Could you please repeat it more slowly? There is absolutely no reason to be insulting. When faced with such disrespect, your best response is to be polite and patient. Dear Annie: I was very touched by the letter from Miserable Forever, whose husband is emotionally and financially abusive. You advised her to get out of the marriage and contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline. I would like to add that she may want to contact her local legal aid office. Also, most states have an attorney referral service, and in some states, attorneys are required to take cases pro bono (free of charge). She may want to look at these resources and see whether she can find an attorney who will take her case for free or at low cost.
