James Hoge identified a need for parochial education in Citrus County, and that thinking resulted in Central Catholic School of Citrus County. The Diocese of St. Petersburg has decided that need no longer exists. Parents and staffers of Pope John Paul II Catholic School were unceremoniously informed Friday that the former Central Catholic would close at the end of this school year. The diocese sent a letter to parents, and then called a staff meeting at the school. There, diocese superintendent of schools Alberto Vazquez Matos made the announcement. Diocese officials refused to comment Monday. Frank Murphy, president of Catholic Charities, said more would be revealed after a meeting the diocese has planned at 6:30 p.m. today with parents at the school. Alumni and others associated with the pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade school vowed they would not allow a decision made in St. Petersburg to occur without a fight. They underestimate this school, Megan Fitzpatrick, an Inverness attorney who attended the school with her three siblings, said. This school is banding together. Jennifer Petrella, who became a Pope John Paul II school board member this year but resigned after just a few meetings because she thought they lacked substance, said alumni and parents want answers from the diocese. Pope John Paul II alumni, parents scramble to stop shutdown of educational institution Alberto Matos, Diocese of St. Petersburg superintendent of sc hools, will meet with parents of Pope John Paul II Catholic School at 6:30 p.m. today at the school. See SCHOOL/ Page A2 Alternative plans Man arrested in connection with pill mill raid A.B. SIDIBE Staff writerAn employee of a purported pill mill clinic in Crystal River that was raided by authorities last year has been apprehended in Colorado. Robert Kevin McGettigan, 47, of Aurora, was arrested and was returned to Citrus County on Sunday, according to the sheriffs office. McGettigan is facing charges of conspiracy to commit racketeering, a RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) violation; trafficking in morphine, opium, oxycodone and heroin and racketeering. His bond is $300,000. The doctor who opened the pain clinic at 700 S.E. Fifth Terrace, Dr. Daniel McIntire, was arrested and charged Feb. 7, 2013, during a multi-agency raid on the facility. Charges of racketeering and trafficking are still pending against McIntire. Citrus County Sheriffs Office said the agency didnt have enough against McGettigan at the time of the raid, and that he fled to Colorado after the incident. The sheriffs office said at the time, the various agencies decided to act after a one-year investigation. It was reported that the clinic allegedly prescribed 1,567,988 pills in the PATFAHERTY Staff writerSpring break has been a college rite since Connie Frances hit Fort Lauderdale Beach for the 1960 film Where the Boys Are. And for college students like Matt Vanaman, spring break is still an eagerly awaited week away from classes and studies. But unlike the traditional fun, sun and party tradition, the Lecanto resident is getting ready for his third alternative spring break. Vanaman and some other students from the College of Central Florida will spend the break as volunteers performing community service. For him it means a trip to Asheville, N.C., where he will mostly be involved with environmental work, such as removing invasive species. Some of his companions will be working on inner city projects, possibly a soup kitchen or with the Salvation Army. Were going to be staying in a cabin out in the middle of nowhere, and we will be working with nonprofit organizations, he said. We usually take one day during the week off to go exploring, This is his third alternative spring break. He said his two previous trips have given him the opportunity to visit Miami Beach and New Orleans, while doing volunteer work in those areas. He first got involved by following up on a college email. Its the kind of thing I always wanted to do. I thought it would be an opportunity to do something new, said Vanaman, a music major who also works as an assistant in the music department at Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church. And not knowing what to expect made it sound more interesting. Its got two halves to it, he said. Its got the personal gratification of seeing what youve done, and with the people you go with, you almost always have some type of lasting relationship. I think the nonprofit area is made of passionate people, sort of by nature. People wouldnt be going on this trip if there wasnt some type of emotional MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleMatt Vanamans plans for spring break are a bit different than those of many of his contemporaries. The College of Central Flor ida student will spend his spring break in and around Asheville, N.C., volunteering for a nonprofit organization. Students shun surf and sand to volunteer during spring break Thai travel agents questioned Associated PressPATTAYA, Thailand Authorities questioned travel agents Monday at a beach resort in Thailand about two men who boarded the vanished Malaysia Airlines plane with stolen passports, part of a growing international investigation into what they were doing on the flight. Nearly three days after the Boeing 777 with 239 people on board disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, no debris has been seen in Southeast Asian waters. Five passengers who checked in for Flight MH370 didnt board the plane, and their luggage was removed from it, Malaysian authorities said. Malaysian Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said this also was being investigated, but he didnt say whether this was suspicious. The search effort, involving at least 34 aircraft and 40 ships from several countries, was being widened to a 115-mile radius from the point the plane vanished from radar screens between Malaysia and Vietnam early Saturday with no distress signal. Two of the passengers were traveling on passports stolen in Thailand and had onward tickets to Europe, but its not known whether the two men had anything to do with the planes disappearance. Criminals and illegal migrants regularly travel on fake or stolen documents. Hishammuddin said biometric information and CCTV footage of the men has been shared with Chinese and U.S. intelligence agencies, which were helping with the investigation. Almost two-thirds of the passengers on the flight were from China.

Denny Dingler Audioprosthologist, HAS Professional Hearing Center www.InvernessHearing.com 726-HEAR 000HIWZ Were not irrational, unintelligent people, she said. Were not podunks up here. For 27 years, the school operated its budget separately from the diocese. The six Catholic churches in Citrus County contributed about 30 percent of the funds while tuition comprised the majority of revenue, former principal Lou Whitaker said. Fundraising helped to provide tuition scholarships for the 40 percent of the student body requiring financial help, Whitaker said. That changed in 2011 when the diocese came up with a plan to require all Catholic parishes in the diocese, whether they support a Catholic school at the time or not, to provide a percentage of their collections for Catholic education. By becoming a diocese affiliate, Pope John Paul II would receive funds directly from the diocese, instead of relying on local churches. They said, were a safety net for you, said Whitaker, who led the school for 12 years. When our enrollment began to decline, I thought, thank God, we have the diocese here to help us through this trouble. Matos letter to parents, however, said the diocese and area churches subsidized the school for $2.1 million in the last five years, even as enrollment continued to decline and costs went up. The enrollment this year is 150 students down from an average of 250 students eight years ago. Matos letter said the projected enrollment for 2014-15 is expected to drop even more, to 120 students. Pope John Paul II school board member Jennifer Hewitson said she believes that projection is off. She said enrollment for next year should be about the same or slightly higher than this year. The letter also said the decision to close the school came after consultation and approval from local pastors, school administrators and board members. Hewitson, a board member for four years, said the board never heard a peep from the diocese about the schools dire financial situation until the day it announced the schools closing. Fitzpatrick said parents and alumni are working this week to present a business plan to the diocese and Bishop Robert Lynch, with the hope that the school will get at least a one-year reprieve to turn the financial situation around. Whitaker, who now lives in Orlando, said she would help. It up to the bishop, she said. He has the final say no matter what. Hewitson hopes Bishop Lynch keeps an open mind. She said: Give us a fair, fighting chance.Contact Chronicle reporter Mike Wright at 352-563-3228 or mwright@ chronicleonline.com. SCHOOLContinued from Page A1 investment. It makes your interaction with them a little more candid, he said. You get to know people really quickly while youre on the trip. The program started in 2011, according to professor Richard Kirk, who organizes the alternative spring break. It was something we heard about and thought we could pull off here, he said. Our goal is for them to enjoy themselves and give back to the community. The program has grown, and they now have two groups going to two different cities. The college also has local one-day volunteer opportunities during spring break for students who cant get away. Kirk said last year 75 students participated. I think the most interesting thing about it is the stuff you learn that I had no idea about, Vanaman said. I consider myself to be fairly well informed, but every time I go on one of these trips, I learn something new that I end up taking back with me. He has also come to realize that many of the worlds problems could actually be solved with adequate time and effort. You get a physical rest from school during spring break, he concluded. This provides a psychological and spiritual reprieve. Contact Chronicle reporter Pat Faherty at 352564-2924 or pfaherty@ chronicleonline.com. BREAKContinued from Page A1 MATTHEW BECK/Chronicle fileThe future of Pope John Paul II Catholic School in Lecanto is limbo following the weekend announcement the Diocese of St. Petersburg will be shutting down the school. Associated PressLABELLE Wildlife officials on Monday finally released an endangered Florida panther that was rehabilitated after a car crash. The panther was released in southeastern Hendry County, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reported. Two scheduled releases last week had to be postponed after the young female panther eluded capture inside her 5-acre pen at the White Oak Conservation Center in Yulee. We are pleased that we have been able to successfully rescue, rehabilitate and release this panther back into the wild, FWC Commissioner Ron Bergeron said in a news release. We believe this panther has a good chance of contributing to progress we are making in the recovery of this population. The panther was rescued as a kitten last May in Collier County. Rescuers took her to the Animal Specialty Hospital of Florida, where she received surgery for injuries that included a broken leg, rib fractures and bruising around her lungs. We are grateful to our partners that helped make the rescue and rehabilitation of this panther possible, FWC panther team leader Darrell Land, FWC panther team leader said. The panther is an endangered species, and its rare for wildlife officials to treat them in captivity. Only around 160 panthers are believed to roam southern Florida. Officials release rehabilitated panther

Country Music Hall of Fame singer Mel Tillis is recovering in Nashville after heart surgery over the weekend. According to a statement from his daughter, Pam Tillis the 81year-old singer required a routine heart procedure, but is expected to make a full recovery. In typical Mel Tillis fashion, hes already cutting up and cracking jokes with the nurses, Tillis said in a statement. Four scheduled shows have been canceled due to his surgery. Tillis became a successful songwriter and singer despite dealing with a stutter. He has recorded more than 60 albums. His hits include Good Woman Blues, Coca Cola Cowboy and Southern Rain. Hes written top songs for George Strait, Ray Price, BobbyBare Kenny Rogers and many more.George Saunders wins Folio PrizeLONDON American writer George Saunders won the 40,000 pound ($67,000) Folio Prize for literature on Monday with his humorous and disturbing short-story collection Tenth of December. The chair of the judging panel, poet Lavinia Greenlaw, said Saunders darkly playful stories explore the human self under ordinary and extraordinary pressure. Saunders beat seven other finalists, including Kent Haruf, Rachel Kushner, AnneCarson and Eimear McBride Saunders has won acclaim for his satirically edged short stories, and last week won the Story Prize for short fiction. His tales place characters with recognizable human emotions in quietly unsettling situations. In one story in Tenth of December, a man is used as a guinea pig in unusual drug trials, while another features women trafficked to be human lawn ornaments. Hes probably best known outside literary circles for a commencement speech to Syracuse Universitys class of 2013, whose key message was: Try to be kinder. It went viral on the Internet and will soon be published as a book. The Folio Prize is in its first year and hopes to rival the Booker Prize as the Englishspeaking worlds most prestigious literary award. It is open to any book published in Britain in the previous year, which has led some in the U.K. literary world to fear it will become U.S.-dominated. Five of the eight finalists for this years prize were American. Saunders said Britain shouldnt be worried. I think any country that produces Zadie Smith and Martin Amis youre good, he said.Turner recovering from surgeryATLANTA Media mogul Ted Turner said hes bouncing back from surgery and is looking forward to getting back to business as usual.

Andrew Roberts, 88HOMOSASSAAndrew William Roberts, 88, of Homosassa, Fla., passed away Friday, March7, 2014, at his home.

Arlene Stratton Associated PressStocks drifted to a slightly lower finish Monday as investors sifted through a blend of discouraging economic data from China and Japan, as well as ongoing uncertainty over Russias incursion into Ukraine. Major market indexes pared their losses as the day drew to a close, aided by some high-flying stocks, including Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Chiquita Brands International and Southwest Airlines. In the absence of U.S. economic data, investors focused on news that Chinas exports slumped 18 percent in February. The report reinforced fears about the outlook for the worlds second-largest economy. In addition, Japan reported a record current account deficit for January and lowered its economic growth estimate for the October-December quarter to 0.7 percent from 1 percent. The reports made for a downbeat start for the market as investors seized the moment to recalibrate their stock holdings. It was a little bit of an excuse to take some money off the table, said Ron Florance, deputy chief investment officer at Wells Fargo Private Bank. We have geopolitical uncertainty, so (its) a good excuse to re-evaluate your risk exposure. Its going to be par for the course for this year. The Standard & Poors 500 index edged down 0.87 of a point to close at 1,877.17. It had been down 11 points earlier. The Dow Jones industrial average lost 34.04 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,418.68. The Nasdaq composite fell 1.77 points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 4,334.45. The three major U.S. indexes are still up for the month, and only the Dow is down for the year. The S&P 500 ended Monday up 1.6 percent for the year, while the Nasdaq finished up 3.8 percent. The downbeat economic report from China hurt several industry sectors heavily reliant on Chinese economic growth, in particular, materials, energy and industrials. Six of the 10 sectors of the S&P 500 index ended lower, led by industrials. Mining company Cliffs Natural Resources was among the biggest decliners in the S&P 500, shedding 70 cents, or 3.8 percent to $17.95. The market is growing more pessimistic around growth in China, said David Chalupnik, head of equities for Nuveen Asset Management. Expectations have been coming down, but the numbers have been disappointing even those reduced expectations. Despite the disappointing data from China, some market watchers anticipate that last weeks gains will continue. Market slows on China growth fears BusinessBRIEFS Sbarro files for bankruptcy protection againNEW YORK Sbarro has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization for the second time in just three years as the pizza chain struggles to turn its business around amid a drop in traffic at shopping mall food courts. The bankruptcy filing on Monday comes after the company shuttered 155 of its U.S. locations last month. The Melville, N.Y., company still has about 800 locations globally, half of those in North America. The pizza chain isnt alone in hurting from the decline in traffic at shopping malls. Earlier this year, the owner of Hot Dog on a Stick also filed for bankruptcy protection, citing the negative impact from the trend. Sbarro is working to balance out its portfolio of mall-based stores with a new concept called Pizza Cucinova that lets people build their own pizzas, company spokesman Jonathan Dedmon said in an email. There are two locations of the new restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, and a third planned for Cincinnati in the summer, Dedmon said. Sbarro is also trying to update its image for serving re-heated pizza at a time when people are increasingly reaching for foods they feel are fresh and wholesome. Dedmon said the chain has been emphasizing freshness and quality of its pizza. Sbarro first filed for bankruptcy protection in April 2011 and emerged a few months later, saying that it significantly cut its debt and received a capital infusion. A new CEO then led a push to revitalize the chains image by touting new recipes and ovens. But the efforts apparently didnt take hold. The company says its latest strategy of store closings and balance sheet restructuring will slash debt by more than 80 percent and improve its profitability.American Air says asset sales totaled $381 millionDALLAS The CEO of American Airlines says his company is getting $381 million from selling takeoff and landing rights at New Yorks LaGuardia Airport and Reagan National Airport outside Washington. Doug Parker said his airline was paid more than it expected to get for the rights called slots at the busy airports. The U.S. Justice Department put a higher figure more than $425 million on Americans gain. Parker said that the government might have added the value of slots that American picked up at New Yorks Kennedy Airport, Thats their valuation, not ours. The Justice Department did not immediately comment. In comments filed Monday in federal district court in Washington, the Justice Department said the value of the slots proved that it drove a hard bargain last year when it settled its antitrust lawsuit against the merger of American and US Airways. The airlines agreed to give up some of their slots at LaGuardia and Reagan and two gates each at airports in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Miami and Dallas. Slots at Reagan, LaGuardia, Kennedy and the Newark, N.J., airport are limited by the government, making them valuable when they hit the market. A pair of slots is needed for each round-trip flight.Obama economists: Rosier picture if budget passedWASHINGTON President Barack Obamas top economists say the nation is on track to make economic progress over the next two years, but say it would do even better if Congress would enact the additional spending he proposed in his most recent budget. A divided Congress in an election year is not likely to heed that call. In their annual report to the president, the Council of Economic Advisers says the nations economy would grow by 3.3 percent in 2014 and 3.5 percent in 2015 and that unemployment would drop to 6.4 percent in 2015 and 6 percent in 2016. Februarys unemployment rate was 6.7 percent. That forecast assumes that Congress would approve $56 billion in spending that is above the limits set in a bipartisan budget agreement earlier this year. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office predicts the economy will grow 2.7 percent in 2014, and Goldman Sachs forecast growth of 2.8 percent this year. The Federal Reserve in December projected growth between 2.8 and 3.2 percent in 2014. All those outlooks are based on existing policies, not on Obamas budget proposals.Colorado collects $2M in recreational pot taxesDENVER Colorado made roughly $2 million in marijuana taxes in January, state revenue officials reported Monday in the worlds first accounting of the recreational pot business. The tax total reported by the state Department of Revenue indicates $14.02 million worth of recreational pot was sold. The state collected roughly $2.01 million in taxes. Colorado legalized pot in 2012, but the commercial sale of marijuana didnt begin until January. Washington state sales begin in coming months. The pot taxes come from 12.9 percent sales taxes and 15 percent excise taxes. Voters approved the pot taxes last year. They declared that the first $40 million of the excise tax must go to school construction; the rest will be spent by state lawmakers. Colorado has about 160 state-licensed recreational marijuana stores, though local licensing kept some from opening in January. From wire reports

OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, MARCH 11, 2014 Unspeakable crimes in North KoreaNationwide starvation and torture in North Korea was made public by the United Nations in February. The U.N. wants the world to know what is occurring in this oppressive nation. A 372-page U.N. report in Geneva compared North Korea to NaziGermany. They dont want world leaders to say we didnt know, as they did when the Nazi empire collapsed, and Pathe News movies showed concentration camps being liberated by Americans in eastern Europe. Kim Jong-un is the third Communists dictator to rule North Korea. His grandfather was the founder. The scale of crimes against humanity is so great that nothing compares in the contemporary world as to what North Korea is doing. Pencil drawings by people who have escaped the concentration camps gives evidence to the types of torture occurring through out the county on a daily basis. The pictures are graphic hard to look at. China, who supports North Korea, is aiding and abetting crimes against humanity by sending defectors back to North Korea, who are sent to prison camps, tortured and executed. I watched some of the news talk shows on television claiming there isnt anything our government can do. But we individuals can do something significant. If China is abetting crimes, we should stop buying products made in China. Walmart, which sells Chinese products, should be boycotted. American corporations who use China as source of cheap labor are also compliant, allowing China to send back North Korea citizens who have escaped into their country. L.M. Eastman LecantoGood show, but hard on handicappedI understand the Chamber of Commerce is the sponsor of the Floral City Strawberry Festival. Good show. I would like to know who was responsible for putting the disabled up the hill, expecting them to feel safe walking down to get to the main entrance. Now that was not bad enough, but when they were at the end of their stay, having to climb back up the hill to their cars. It was not fun. I talked to several people who did not understand why this was done. This doesnt say too much for the disabled people of America, does it?Shirley Granneman Floral City DAVIDM. SHRIBMAN WITHFRITZBYERSFifty years ago, Lyndon Johnson began the War on Poverty and proclaimed his vision for a Great Society, civil rights workers were killed in Mississippi during Freedom Summer, and the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution paved the way toward steep troop escalations in Southeast Asia. But the event of 1964 that allowed Americans to acquire a deeper understanding of all these events and of the dramatic events that followed in Vietnam and Watergate was a decision rendered in the whispery confines of the chambers of the U.S. Supreme Court. A half-century ago on March 9, 1964, the justices handed down their unanimous ruling in New York Timesv. Sullivan. The thumbnail interpretation of this decision that public figures would have to prove actual malice to win a libel case triggered a tremor in legal offices, judicial chambers and newsrooms from coast to coast. Fifty years on, we see that the significance of the decision was its establishment of a single national standard in libel cases, one that frees the press to do the job the Constitution entrusts to it and protects the press against state incursions on press freedoms. Today we take for granted the vigorous press this decision produced and preserved. On a national level, it permitted The Washington Postto conduct its landmark Watergate investigation. On a regional level, it has permitted newspapers like thePittsburgh Post-Gazetteto uncover serious abuses in police overtime and present a groundbreaking series of stories detailing the pinions of power in our community both prepared and published without fear that arcane libel laws designed to protect the king and Church of England from critics would be applied to us, punishing our daring and silencing our writers. We are the executive editor and the outside counsel of thePost-Gazetteand, far from Washington and the great dramas of war and national politics, we and our readers are the daily beneficiaries of this ruling. The Sullivan decision grew out of an Alabama case in which the state establishment sought to punish a Northern paper for commenting on the civil rights movement. It put to rest the long-smoldering idea of seditious libel, the notion that a statement could defame a government, and it ended the threat posed by a wave of similar suits across the South, accounting for $300 million in possible damage claims and raising the prospect that newspapers would be cowed into no longer covering civil rights issues. Until 1964, the assumption was that, as the Alabama Supreme Court put it in its decision that triggered the high courts review, the First Amendment does not protect libelous publications. The dangerous result: States could handle libel as they wished. We an editor and his lawyer are no advocates of libelous publications. But our work is deeply affected by how courts define and apply the idea of libel. In Sullivan, the Supreme Court placed this crucial question in the context of the broader civil aspirations that undergird the First Amendment and suffuse the Constitution. This sentence, written by Justice William J. Brennan Jr., may be the most important 44 words in press law since James Madison drafted the First Amendment in 1789: We consider this case against the background of a profound national commitment to the principle that debate on public issues should be uninhibited, robust and wide-open, and that it may well include vehement, caustic and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials. The court connected this commitment to the history of the Sedition Act of 1798, passed early in the republic but rejected due to what the court deemed a broad consensus that the Act, because of the restraint it imposed upon criticism of government and public officials, was inconsistent with the First Amendment. With the Sullivan decision often misunderstood but never minimized in importance the Supreme Court swept away the fear that routine but robust news coverage of government and of social movements might be met (and silenced) by libel suits. If it had gone the other way, the press would have been chilled, criticism of government and of governmental officials would have been restricted, and self-censorship might have reigned in the nations newsrooms. Instead, we have a yeasty press today and a legacy of courageous reporting, not only on civil rights but also on presidential power, Congress, national security and, following the Bush v. Gore case that settled the 2000 presidential election, the Supreme Court itself. By creating the necessary breathing space for this vigorous, even querulous press, the Supreme Court altered the entire nature of libel litigation and the public has been the winner.David M.

Patience is the best medicine.John Florio, 1578 A victory for press and public CITRUS COUNTY CHRONICLE Founded by Albert M. Williamson You may differ with my choice, but not my right to choose. David S. Arthurs publisher emeritus EDITORIAL BOARDGerry Mulligan ....................................publisherMike Arnold ..............................................editorCharlie Brennan ........................managing editorCurt Ebitz ..................................citizen memberMac Harris ................................citizen memberRebecca Martin ........................citizen memberBrad Bautista ....................................copy chiefLogan Mosby ..............................features editor PLANNING TOOL Medical corridor plan advances During its last meeting, the county commission approved by a 4-1 vote an amendment to the Comprehensive Plan aimed at fostering development of a medical corridor along County Road 491 from State Road 44 to County Road 486. Along with plans to widen the two-lane road to four lanes, the medical corridor overlay plan is a growth management tool aimed at fostering both commercial and residential development along the two-mile planning corridor. By adopting the plan amendment, the county seeks to guide development of the stretch of highway that is already becoming populated by medically related enterprises ranging from physician offices and clinics to a surgery center, a pharmacy, assisted living facilities and a hospice house. Ideally, the overlay will help this stretch of highway be a well-planned development instead of simply a happening and will help bring to fruition plans for a medical corridor that have been discussed for the last four years. In discussion of the plan amendment, the commission recognized that there may be conflicting land use within the planning area, and removed some property from the overlay to avoid future conflicts. This was a good decision that may help avoid some conflicts as the medical corridor is developed. Any development plan is only a guideline, and should not be so rigid as to discourage desirable economic activity. However, having a plan for how an area will develop is a tool the county has and should use to help guide growth within a specified area. Putting the overlay in place is a significant step for continued economic development in the planning area, and should encourage additional medical services for our existing population and to those now moving into the county. In addition, development of new medical facilities will encourage other business and residential growth in the planning area that supports and compliments the medical facilities. Citrus County has a population older than the state average. With an aging population there is a continued and increasing need for medical services. These will be provided by someone, somewhere, either inside or out of the county.

Why do we got them? We have police here that can take of that. Well, if you talk to any law enforcement official, for them to really get somebody at a red light, hes got to be standing behind that vehicle and observe as they pass through that light while its red and if theyre moving through the intersection.

RICOContinued from Page A1 The stolen passports, one belonging to Christian Kozel of Austria, and the other to Luigi Maraldi of Italy, were entered into Interpols database after they were taken in Thailand in 2012 and 2013, the police organization said. Electronic booking records show that one-way tickets with those names were issued Thursday from a travel agency in the beach resort of Pattaya in eastern Thailand. Thai police Col. Supachai Phuykaeokam said those reservations were placed with the agency by a second travel agency in Pattaya, Grand Horizon. Thai police and Interpol officers questioned the owners. Officials at Grand Horizon refused to talk to The Associated Press. Police Lt. Col. Ratchthapong Tia-sood said the travel agency was contacted by an Iranian man known only as Mr. Ali to book the tickets for the two men. We have to look further into this Mr. Alis identity because its almost a tradition to use an alias when doing business around here, he said. The travel agencys owner, Benjaporn Krutnait, told The Financial Timesshe believed Mr. Ali was not connected to terrorism because he had asked for the cheapest tickets to Europe and did not specify the Kuala Lumpur to Beijing flight. Malaysias police chief was quoted by local media as saying that one of the two men had been identified. Civil aviation chief Azharuddin Abdul Rahman declined to confirm this, but said they were of nonAsian appearance, adding that authorities were looking at the possibility the men were connected to a stolen passport syndicate. Asked by a reporter what they looked like, he said: Do you know of a footballer by the name of (Mario) Balotelli? He is an Italian. Do you know how he looks like? A reporter then asked, Is he black? and the aviation chief replied, Yes. Possible causes of the apparent crash include an explosion, catastrophic engine failure, terrorist attack, extreme turbulence, pilot error or even suicide, according to experts, many of whom cautioned against speculation because so little is known.

Thai police said owners of the travel agency told them they had received orders from a China Southern Airlines office in Bangkok for Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 for two individuals who boarded the flight with fake passports. Arcade fix poses problems The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE An attempt to clear up confusion over laws regulating arcade games may create even more problems, possibly opening the door for a resurgence in storefront casinos and senior arcades. A year ago, lawmakers hurriedly passed a law shutting down Internet cafs in response to a multi-state investigation into Allied Veterans of the World, a bogus charity accused of running an illegal gambling ring throughout the state. The new law also was intended to shut down adult arcades frequented by seniors. But family entertainment centers like Dave & Busters and Chuck E. Cheeses, as well as retailers with claw machines, said they were caught in the crosshairs of last years law. Sen. Kelli Stargel, RLakeland, has proposed a bill that she said further clarifies and updates the laws regarding games at arcades, bowling alleys and retailers. The Senate Gaming Committee on Monday unanimously approved the proposal. But Sen. Maria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, asked whether the proposed law could also apply to senior arcades, many of which shut down after the Internet caf ban was passed last year. Committee Chairman Garrett Richter, R-Naples, said he didnt know, when asked if the measure would allow the senior arcades to reopen.

Court-martial trial in jeopardyFORT BRAGG, N.C. The sexual assault case against an Army general was thrown into jeopardy Monday when the judge said the military may have improperly pressed ahead with a trial to send a message about its determination to curb rape and other widespread misconduct. Judge Col. James Pohl refused to dismiss the charges against Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair but offered the defense another chance to plea-bargain the case down with a different set of military officials. Pohl reviewed newly disclosed emails in Sinclairs case and said he found evidence of unlawful command influence in Fort Bragg officials decision to reject a plea deal before the trial began late last week. Under the military code of justice, the decision was supposed to be decided solely on the evidence, not its broader political implications. Sinclair, the 51-year-old former deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne Division, is accused of twice forcing a female captain to perform oral sex on him in Afghanistan in 2011 during a three-year extramarital affair. He has admitted to the affair but denied assaulting the woman.Lawmakers: Add Sikhs to militaryWASHINGTON A bipartisan group of 105 lawmakers urged the Defense Department on Monday to make it easier for practicing Sikh Americans who wear beards and turbans to serve in the military. The House members wrote to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel calling for an end to a presumptive ban on Sikhs serving. Under a policy announced in January, troops can seek waivers on a case-by-case basis to wear religious clothing, seek prayer time or engage in religious practices. Approval depends on where the service member is stationed and whether the change would affect military readiness or the mission. But the Sikh Coalition, a group that advocates for the estimated half-million Sikhs living in the U.S., said that in the last 30 years, only three Sikhs have received permission to serve in the U.S. Army while maintaining their articles of faith, namely turbans and unshorn hair, including beards.

Pistorius vomits during trialPRETORIA, South Africa Hunched over, vomiting into a bucket by his feet and retching loudly, Oscar Pistorius was vividly reminded at his murder trial Monday of the gruesome injuries he inflicted on his girlfriend when a pathologist described how the Olympian fatally shot her multiple times with bullets designed to cause maximum damage. The testimony by Prof. Gert Saayman, who performed the autopsy on Reeva Steenkamps body, was so graphic that it was not broadcast or reported live on social media by journalists under an order from Judge Thokozile Masipa. Saayman methodically listed the extent of the three main gunshot wounds Steenkamp suffered on Valentines Day last year when she was shot by the double-amputee runner in the right side of the head, the right hip and the right arm through a toilet cubicle door. The pathologist said Steenkamp, 29, was hit by special Black Talon bullets and that the head shot from Pistorius 9 mm pistol was probably almost instantly fatal, causing brain damage and multiple fractures to her skull. Bent over while sitting on a wooden bench, Pistorius vomited when Saayman reached his right hand up toward the right side of his own head to show the entrance and exit wounds in Steenkamps skull.Report: Syrian health care badBEIRUT Syrias health care system is on the brink of collapse, with medics forced to engage in brutal medical practices in order to save lives: knocking out patients with metal bars because of lack of anesthesia, or amputating infants limbs for lack of other ways to treat their injuries, an international charity organization said in a report published Monday. Newborns die in hospital incubators during power outages, while millions of children have been exposed to deadly diseases, some of which are preventable with vaccinations and basic medical equipment, Save the Children said. The conflict has ravaged Syria for three years and has hit the countrys health facilities and health providers hard. Hospitals have been bombed by government forces in rebelheld areas. World BRIEFS From wire reports Animals distinguish human tones Associated PressWASHINGTON Dr. Seuss had it right: Horton really does hear a Who. Wild elephants can distinguish between human languages, and they can tell whether a voice comes from a man, woman or boy, a new study states. Thats what researchers found when they played recordings of people for elephants in Kenya. Scientists said this is an advanced thinking skill that other animals havent shown. It lets elephants figure out who is a threat and who isnt. The result shows that while humans are studying elephants, the clever animals are also studying people and drawing on their famed powers of memory, said study author Karen McComb. Basically, they have developed this very rich knowledge of the humans that they share their habitat with, said McComb, a professor of animal behavior and cognition at the University of Sussex in England. Memory is key. They must build up that knowledge somehow. The study was released Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Its close but not quite like the Dr. Seuss book, where the empathetic elephant Horton hears something that others cant hear. McComb and colleagues went to Amboseli National Park in Kenya, where hundreds of wild elephants live among humans, sometimes coming in conflict over scarce water. The scientists used voice recordings of Maasai men, who on occasion kill elephants in confrontations over grazing for cattle, and Kamba men, who are less of a threat to the elephants. The recordings contained the same phrase in two different languages: Look over there. A group of elephants is coming. By about a two-to-one margin, the elephants reacted defensively retreating and gathering in a bunch more to the Maasai language recording because it was associated with the more threatening human tribe, said study co-author Graeme Shannon of Colorado State University. They are making such a fine-level discrimination using human language skills, Shannon said. Theyre able to acquire quite detailed knowledge. The only way of doing this is with an exceptionally large brain. They repeated the experiment with recordings of Maasai men and women. Since women almost never spear elephants, the animals reacted less to the womens voices. The same thing happened when they substituted young boys voices. Making this kind of fine distinctions in human voice patterns is quite remarkable, said Emory University animal cognition expert Frans de Waal, who was not part of the study. In yet another experiment McComb and Shannon altered female and male voices, making female voices sound male by lowering their tone and resonance, and males sound female by raising their pitches. Those kinds of changes fool most humans, but the clever elephants werent tricked, McComb said. They still moved away from the altered male voices and not the altered female voices. Senate votes for change Associated PressWASHINGTON The Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill late Monday making big changes in the military justice system to deal with sexual assault, including scrapping the nearly century-old practice of using a good soldier defense to raise doubts that a crime has been committed. On a vote of 97-0, the Senate rallied behind a bipartisan plan crafted by three female senators Democrat Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Republicans Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Deb Fischer of Nebraska that would impose a halfdozen changes to combat the pervasive problem of rape and sexual offenses that Pentagon leaders have likened to a cancer within the ranks. Unanimous agreement in the U.S. Senate is pretty rare but rarer still is the kind of sweeping, historic change weve achieved over the past year in the military justice system, McCaskill said after the vote. Still, that unanimous support was in sharp contrast to last week, when military leaders vigorously opposed a measure by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, DN.Y., that would have stripped commanders of their authority to prosecute cases and given that power to seasoned military lawyers outside the chain of command. Though expressing certain reservations, the Pentagon had been generally accepting of the new bill. The House could act on the legislation as a standalone measure or incorporate it into the massive defense policy bill that it pulls together in the spring. This is not the end of this, Ayotte said in brief remarks on the Senate floor after the vote. We will make sure reforms are implemented, commanders are held accountable and victims are treated with dignity and respect. The new legislation would change the military rules of evidence to prohibit the accused from using good military character as an element of his defense in court-martial proceedings unless it was directly relevant to the alleged crime. The good soldier defense could encompass a defendants military record of reliability, dependability, professionalism and reputation as an individual who could be counted on in war and peacetime. McCaskill described it as the ridiculous notion that how well one flies a plane should have anything to do with whether they committed a crime. US network to scan workers with secret clearances Associated PressWASHINGTON Stung by internal security lapses, U.S. intelligence officials plan to use a sweeping electronic system to continually monitor workers with secret clearances, current and former officials told The Associated Press. The system is intended to identify rogue agents, corrupt officials and leakers and draws on a Defense Department model under development for more than a decade, according to officials and documents reviewed by the AP Intelligence officials have long wanted a computerized system that could monitor employees, in part to foil leakers like former National Security Agency analyst Edward Snowden, whose revelations bared massive U.S. surveillance operations. Such a system might also detect troubling signs in those who already hold security clearances, such as the shooter in last years mass killings at Washingtons Navy Yard. Many of the nearly 4 million government employees who hold secret clearances would be scanned by the new system, officials say. An administration review of the governments security clearance process due this month is expected to support continuous monitoring as part of a package of comprehensive changes. Privacy advocates and government employee union officials expressed concerns that electronic monitoring could intrude into individuals private lives, prompt flawed investigations and put sensitive personal data at greater risk. Supporters say the system would have safeguards. Workers with secret clearances are already required to undergo background checks of their finances and private lives before they are hired and again during periodic re-investigations. What we need is a system of continuous evaluation where when someone is in the system and theyre cleared initially, then we have a way of monitoring their behavior, both their electronic behavior on the job as well as off the job, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress last month. Clapper said the proposed system would extend across the government, drawing on six or seven data streams. Monitoring of employees at some agencies could begin as early as September and be fully operational across the government by September 2016. The price tag, Clapper conceded, is going to be costly. Budget documents released last week show the Pentagon requesting nearly $9 million next year for insider threat-related research. Elephants pay attention Associated PressA wild elephant in Amboseli National Park in Kenya reacts to sound played by scientists in April 2011 in experiments that show they can distinguish between human languages and genders.

Drivers have been vocal in their displeasure about the alleged lack of safety in NASCARs new qualifying format. Associated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. NASCAR would be hard-pressed to find many fans who dont prefer the drama and intrigue of the new, knockout qualifying format over the old system of single-car runs. But the rules have created a wrinkle that drivers up and down the grid say is far too dangerous. NASCAR has now been warned repeatedly, by some of the biggest names in the sport. And finding an immediate solution to what Brian Vickers called the most dangerous thing Ive ever done in racing should be NASCARs only item on the agenda this week. For two weeks in a row, drivers have complained that their engines are too hot following their qualifying runs. They can either cool the engines or gamble on not blowing the engine on the next fast lap. Only NASCAR has prohibited teams from cooling their cars on pit road because doing so would require the use of a cooling box. Since few adjustments are allowed during qualifying rounds, the cooling box is not an option because it would require teams to open the hood of the car. Once the hoods are open, inspectors would have too difficult of a time policing pit road to make sure no adjustments are being made to the cars. So teams figured out their own solution: Drivers are slowing their cars to a crawl and circling the track at slow speeds to cool the engines following their fast laps. Its going on at the same time as other drivers are speeding along, making their qualifying attempt. Youre going 200 mph out there, and cars that arent even running are running about 40, grumbled Clint Bowyer. Asked for his opinion, Ryan Newman simply said: Its not safe. Thats an easy answer. Its not safe. Those were just two of the gripes that came out of Las Vegas Motor Speedway, a 1.5-mile track that has enough room on the apron to accommodate the slow cars while the cars whizzing by them making a qualifying run. But NASCAR heads to Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend and the 0.533-mile bullring is incredibly short on the real estate needed to accommodate cars driving at dramatically different speeds. Vickers said there was a point during qualifying at Las Vegas Friday when he was riding slowly around the bottom of the track and Reed Sorenson sailed past him at a speed difference of 170 mph. We dont have impact data on 170-180 mph differential impacts, he said. If I hit someone with those speed discrepancies, thats going to be really bad for everyone. What more does NASCAR need to hear before officials figure out a solution? True, the system is only two weeks old and theres yet to be a serious incident. Waiting to see how it develops over the next few weeks is a reckless gamble. After spending much of last year working on a new rules package to improve the quality of racing at superspeedways, NASCAR vice president of innovation and racing development Gene Stefanyshyn warned before Sundays first test at Las Vegas that one race would not be a true indicator of progress. Give it time, he urged, for teams to get a handle on the rules and adjust accordingly before deciding if more work was needed. NASCAR must address perils of new qualifying format for drivers Former Lion Delmas signs with DolphinsMIAMI Safety Louis Delmas has signed a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins thats worth up to $3.5 million. Miami also released cornerback Dimitri Patterson on Monday. Patterson was plagued by injuries the past two seasons, and his departure frees up more than $5 million in salary-cap space. Delmas spent the past five seasons with the Detroit Lions, who released him last month. Hes expected to replace Chris Clemons, who can become a free agent Tuesday. Delmas started 15 games in 2013 and had a career-high three interceptions.

Free agent defensive end Michael Bennett is returning to Seattle after agreeing to a multi-year deal with the Super Bowl champion Seahawks. Terms of the contract were not immediately available on Monday. Bennett was considered one of the top free agents in the NFL after a breakout season with the Seahawks where he led the team in sacks and proved a versatile option as a defensive end and defensive tackle. Bennett was thought to have been strongly pursued by Chicago, where he had a chance of joining his brother, Martellus, with the Bears.

Sam Kanawall found Micah Jenkins open down the sideline for a 20-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter to break a 6-6 tie. A late touchdown run by Kailey Rouleau secured the win for the Lady Hurricanes. Citrus head coach Ashley Cooper told her players afterward, Nice first game. I think we got our nerves out the first half. Disciplined defense by both teams kept the game scoreless in the first half, capped by the Canes stopping the Pirates Shirley Kortendick at the Citrus 3-yard line on a fourth and goal run attempt. With about four minutes left in the first half, Rouleau ran toward the right sideline, cut back toward the middle of the field and ran past Pirate defenders for a 41yard touchdown to make the score 6-0. It didnt take long for the Pirates to bounce back; in fact, it only took one play. On the first play of the second half, Stephanie Morrison spotted Jasmyne Eason moving toward the middle of the field in tight coverage. Her pass to Eason was a little high and bounced straight up off Easons hands. Eason caught the carom, spun and ran down the left sideline for an 80-yard touchdown to tie the game. Though the Pirates plundered the momentum, they couldnt get the ball into Hurricanes territory, the remainder of the game. Breea Van Hises interception of a Morrison pass at the Pirates 20 set up the pivotal throw for Kanawall. Though she was initially looking for another receiver, Kanawall said she spotted Jenkins behind coverage and knew she had to get the ball to her, throwing a perfect spiral to the 2-yard line Jenkins hauled in before eluding an attempt at her flag belt. On the Canes next possession, Kanawall had a touchdown pass erased by an illegal contact call on a teammate. Four plays later, she was forced to run from pressure, scampering 18 yards to set up Rouleaus score on the ensuing play, with a successful 1point conversion giving the Canes a 13-point lead. Kanawall thought her team played better than they thought they would for its first game. Im really excited about the season for us, she said.

UConn women rout Louisville 72-52 to win AAC Associated PressTampa Bay Lightning center Tyler Johnson celebrates his shorthanded goal against the Phoenix Coyotes during the first period Monday in Tampa. Bolts get point, but lose in OT Associated PressTAMPA Radim Vrbata scored the lone shootout goal to lead the Phoenix Coyotes past the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 on Monday night. Vrbata beat Ben Bishop with a backhand. Mike Smith stopped all three Lightning shootout shots. Ondrej Palat got the Lightning even at 3-all on his second goal of the game, coming from the low slot with the Tampa Bay net empty and 37.2 seconds left in regulation. Palat also had an assist. Brandon McMillan, Martin Erat and Mikkel Boedker scored for the Coyotes, who trailed eighth-place Dallas by one point in the Western Conference. Tampa Bay, 1-4-2 since the Olympic break ended, also got a goal from Tyler Johnson. After Erat scored following an errant defensive zone pass by Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman 2:13 into the third, Boedker put the Coyotes ahead 3-2 with a rebound goal at 7:48. Palat gave the Lightning a 2-1 lead from in-close off a pass from Ryan Callahan with 52.3 seconds left in the second. Johnson scored his fourth short-handed goal and 20th overall this season to put the Lightning up 1-0 at 11:26 of the first. With Steven Stamkos off for hooking, the rookie went around stumbling defenseman Keith Yandle and put a backhand past Smith. After not having a shorthanded goal last season, Tampa Bay has nine in 2013-14. The Lightning have a short-handed goal in three straight games and six of their past 15. McMillan tied it at 1 on a rebound goal 61 seconds into the second after Bishop stopped Yandles shot.Stars C Peverley collapses; game postponedDALLAS The game between Dallas and the Columbus Blue Jackets was called off in the first period after Stars forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench. Play was halted 6:23 into the game as Peverley was carried from the bench. A public address announcement was made several minutes later that the 31-year-old Peverley was conscious and taken to the hospital. Theyre shaken and they want to reschedule. We understand that, John Davidson, the Blue Jackets president of hockey operations, told Fox Sports Ohio. They were shaken to the core. There was no immediate announcement of when the game would be made up. Columbus was leading 1-0. Peverley missed the start of the season because of a procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat, a condition diagnosed during a training camp physical.Penguins 3, Capitals 2WASHINGTON Sidney Crosby had a hand in both early goals and Pittsburgh converted on two of its first three shots, Chris Kunitz scored twice, and the Penguins beat Alex Ovechkins struggling Washington Capitals 3-2. Crosby finished with his 30th goal and two assists to raise his NHL-leading point total to 87, matching his uniform number. The Penguins beat Washington for the seventh consecutive time and overtook idle Boston for the Eastern Conferences best record. The Capitals, who began the day outside of the playoff picture in 10th place in the East, have lost four of their past five games. Monday featured the largely uneventful NHL debut of Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov, a 2010 first-round draft pick. The teams play each other again Tuesday at Pittsburgh.Predators 4, Senators 3, OTOTTAWA, Ontario Seth Jones scored at 3:49 of overtime and the Nashville Predators defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-3. Ryan Ellis broke in alone on goaltender Robin Lehner and Jones was there to bang home the loose puck. Associated PressMILWAUKEE Brandon Knight scored 24 points and sparked Milwaukees rousing rally from an 18point deficit with a dunk to lead the Bucks to a 105-98 win Monday night over the Orlando Magic. Knight confounded Orlando with a quick first step and threw down a dunk for a 74-71 lead with 10:57 left after Ramon Sessions went high for an outlet pass in the lane and patted the ball back to his driving backcourt mate. The lead swelled to 95-81 with 2:49 left before Orlando mounted its own late charge to get within three off a 3 from Jameer Nelson with 35 seconds left. But the Bucks hit their foul shots late and Orlando was hurt after Nikola Vucevic was whistled for an offensive foul with 22 seconds left. A game between two of the worst teams in the league the Bucks and Magic had combined for 95 losses coming into the night turned into an entertaining affair down the stretch that saw the Bucks snap a three-game skid. Knight was the difference. His hustling play was in stark contrast to the lethargic Bucks squad that allowed Orlando to build a 31-13 lead with a 13-0 run. Orlandos Tobias Harris had 11 during the spurt against his former team. Nelson finished with 13 while Maurice Harkless had 14 for Orlando, which landed seven players in double figures. All of Harris points came during the early run. Several times early in the contest it looked as though the Magic would hold on for their fifth road victory of the year. They even got guard Victor Oladipo back after the rookie missed the last two games with left ankle soreness. But the stretch run belonged to Knight, who at one point went shotfor-shot late in the third quarter with Oladipo while Milwaukee chipped away at the big deficit. Knight nearly singlehandedly blew past Orlando to start the fourth. A layup with 11:21 left gave Milwaukee a 72-71 lead, its first advantage since the quarter. Then came Knights dunk. Sessions forced a steal before the loose ball got to teammate Giannis Antetokounmpo. The rookie threw a high pass down court back to Sessions, who jumped with one arm outstretched and got the ball to the streaking Knight for the throwdown. After another missed Magic shot, Knight hurt Orlando again, this time with a 3 from the wing for a 7771 lead with 10:30 left. Khris Middleton added three fourth-quarter 3s to help the Bucks build its own double-digit lead before having to stave off Orlandos last-ditch rally. Oladipo came off the bench and finished with 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting. Middleton had 21 points, while Ersan Ilyasova added 16 points and 11 rebounds. Ilyasova gave Milwaukee a spark in the first half before Knight lifted the team in the second.Heat 99, Wizards 90MIAMI Dwyane Wade scored 13 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter, LeBron James led all scorers with 23 points and the Miami Heat clinched a playoff spot by beating the Washington Wizards 99-90. Chris Bosh scored 22 for the Heat, who snapped a three-game slide and moved within one game of Indiana in the race for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. Ray Allen added 13 for Miami, which was down one midway through the fourth before Wade sparked a 12-0 run with five points, three assists and a block at the rim. The Heat never trailed again, and avoided their first four-game slide since 2011. Bradley Beal scored 18 points, Martell Webster added 17 and Drew Gooden scored 15 for the Wizards.Bobcats 105, Nuggets 98CHARLOTTE, N.C. Al Jefferson scored 26 points and Kemba Walker added 24 as the Charlotte Bobcats won their seventh straight game at home, defeating the Denver Nuggets 105-98. Jefferson made 10 of his first 14 fieldgoal attempts and also had a game-high 12 rebounds. Walker added seven assists for the Bobcats, who also received a big boost from Gary Neal off the bench. Neal made his first six field-goal tries, including three 3-pointers, and ended up with 19 points. Josh McRoberts added 15 points for Charlotte, including a key 3-pointer with 6:15 left at the shot-clock buzzer to extend Charlottes lead to 90-82 after Denver had cut it to five at 87-82. Ty Lawson scored 24 points to lead the Nuggets.Nets 101, Raptors 97NEW YORK Deron Williams and Shaun Livingston each scored 18 points and an ailing Paul Pierce hit a 3-pointer with 1:14 remaining to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 101-97 victory over the Atlantic Division-leading Toronto Raptors. Pierce finished with 15 points and Joe Johnson added 14 for the Nets, who won their season-high eighth straight at home. Brooklyn moved three games behind Toronto in the Atlantic. Kyle Lowry scored 21 points to lead Toronto, which had won nine of its previous 11. The Nets trailed 94-92 after Lowry split the defense in the lane for a lay-up with 2:15 left. Brooklyn then answered with five straight points as Andray Blatches reverse lay-up tied the score at 94 and Pierce followed with a 3-pointer.Knicks 123, 76ers 110NEW YORK Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 28 points as the New York Knicks defeated Philadelphia 123-110, sending the 76ers to their 17th straight loss. Amare Stoudemire added 23 points, J.R. Smith 22 and Carmelo Anthony 20 as the Knicks won their fourth game in a row. Michael Carter-Williams recorded a triple-double with 23 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists, while Tony Wroten also had 23 points for the struggling 76ers. The Knicks, who trailed by 12 points in the first quarter, took their biggest lead of the game, 110-89, on the fourth of Hardaway Jrs five 3-pointers with 7:37 left and never led by less than 12 the rest of the way.

Officials dont have the luxury of taking a wait-and-see approach on what competitors say is a major safety concern. Do they wait for a major accident before they act? A driver injury? NASCAR clearly has something good on its hands with the new knockout format, and drivers have warned that something bad could happen unless a change is made. Why even take the chance? Six-time NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson had another suggestion, too. At the start of qualifying, cars are being parked on pit road facing in, requiring the drivers to back out when they are ready to make their lap. It makes for a lot of activity in a very short period of time. That initial roll-out is very sketchy and I think were going to start crashing cars just backing out, because youve got guys at various angles trying to back out and guys backing out before the clock strikes zero and the track is green, Johnson said. We need to clean it up a little. I think the format is awesome. Its great for the fans, its great for the teams, but some of the logistics and flow on pit road could be addressed. Youve been warned NASCAR. Dont wait to see if the drivers are crying wolf. with it. I didnt have good feel for it, so instead of abandon it and going to something I know, my slider or something I can throw for a strike, Im going to keep throwing that right now. Thats my main emphasis. Rays Manager Joe Maddon is not worried about the results; he wants Odorizzi to keep throwing his new pitch. Both Odorizzi and Bedard are candidates for the Rays fifth rotation spot. Bedard, who is working on his changeup, went 1 2/3 innings, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks with one strikeout. The fact that they both came out of it well and healthy, Im fine with that, Maddon said.Trainers roomRays: Right-hander Joel Peralta, who has been sidelined with a stiff neck, may need a few more days before returning to game activity. ... Ben Zobrist, who has also been sidelined with a stiff neck, will need a few more days before returning to game activity. ... David DeJesus who has been sidelined with a sore right side is expected to be in the lineup on Tuesday. Red Sox: Left-hander Craig Breslow, who has been brought along slowly after last seasons increased workload, is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Tuesday for the first time this spring. ... Right-hander Jake Peavy, who has been sidelined since March 1, when he cut his left index finger with a knife, is scheduled to make his first spring start Thursday at the Twins. Right fielder Shane Victorino, who was being brought along slowly after surgery on his right thumb in December, made his first appearance of the spring. He went 0 for 1 with a run scored and a strikeout. The fact that hes on the field and hes back in the flow of things, and well build out his progression is a definite positive, Farrell said.Ready for twoGrady Sizemore, who is attempting to make a comeback after being away from baseball for more than two years because of injuries went 1 for 3, leading off the game for the Red Sox with a single. He is expected to play Tuesday, the first time in back-to-back games for him this spring.Late arrivalWilson Betemit, who served as the Rays designated hitter, played his first game of the spring, going 0 for 2. He had been delayed in the Dominican Republic until March 6 because of visa issues. Just coming out of the chute, line drive and a walk from the left side, I liked how he looked physically, Maddon said. RAYSContinued from Page B1 DANGERContinued from Page B1 Associated PressFlorida coach Billy Donovan, front, thinks teams that have to play in their conference championship games on Sunday shouldnt take part in an NCAA tournament contest until the next Friday. Associated PressGAINESVILLE Florida coach Billy Donovan renewed his longstanding argument Monday that teams playing in conference title games on Selection Sunday should not have to return to the court in the NCAA tournament until Friday. The top-ranked Gators are a lock to open NCAA play Thursday, March 20, in Orlando. So if Donovans team advances to the SEC tournament final this week, which would mean playing three games in three days, Florida would follow with a relatively short week considering it would have to travel back to Gainesville and then to Orlando a few days later. One thing the NCAA has to look at is any conference thats playing their conference tournament and it goes into Sunday, Donovan said Monday. Those teams, in my opinion, should not play in the NCAA tournament until Friday because you have to go up there and you have to have a mandatory opening practice on a Wednesday if youre playing Thursday. Thats not right for those teams, where youve got a team that all of sudden does a heck of a job, they get all the way to Sunday, they win a championship, maybe they miss Selection Sunday, theyve got to travel back, they get back on campus on Sunday, theyve got to try to recuperate after playing three straight games and theyre on a plane Tuesday night going into a place, Wednesday practice, Thursday playing. Thats a lot in my opinion. Its nothing new for Donovan to complain about, either. Donovan has mentioned the short turnarounds just about every year, even when his team isnt the favorite to win the SEC tournament. The Gators (29-2) have won a schoolrecord 23 consecutive games and became the first team in SEC history to go 18-0 in the regular season. Florida will play either eighthseeded Missouri or ninth-seeded Texas A&M on Friday in the SEC tournament. The Gators havent won the league tourney since 2007, the year they won the second of back-to-back national titles. Donovan said knowing his team will open NCAA play next Thursday has no bearing on whether they want to win the SEC tournament. Of course we do, he said. None of that stuff is obviously ideal. Well have to go out there and play regardless. That was just something I would say we need to look at. But I think our guys will be excited about playing. Regardless where it is, well have time to get prepared and ready to play. So if were playing in Orlando, thats great. But our goal right now would be to try to put three games together and play in a championship game on Sunday. Theres not going to be anything from our perspective where you sit there and say, OK, because its Sunday, lets bail on this tournament early. Were not going to do that. Were going to try to do the very, very best we can if were fortunate enough to play three days. UFs Donovan not a fan of short turnarounds

B4TUESDAY, MARCH11, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Tigers romp over Cards Associated PressJUPITER Two-time AL MVP Miguel Cabrera hit his first two home runs of spring training and AL Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer struck out five in 4 2/3 scoreless innings Monday during the Detroit Tigers 17-5 romp over the St. Louis Cardinals. Cabrera hit a go-ahead, tworun homer off Shelby Miller in a seven-run third inning and another two-run drive against Keith Butler in an eight-run fourth as Detroit built a 15-0 lead. The Tigers made 17-0 on Steven Moyas two-run double in the eighth. Scherzer allowed two hits and a walk. St. Louis pitchers gave up double-digit runs for the second straight day and 22 hits.Braves 8, Phillies 1CLEARWATER Brandon Beachy became the second straight Atlanta starting pitcher forced to leave early, exiting the Braves 8-1 win over Philadelphia because of tightness around his right elbow. Beachy had been scheduled to throw four innings. He left after pitching two scoreless innings, giving up two hits and two walks. The 27-year-old righty has been limited to 18 starts in the last two seasons while battling elbow ailments. On Sunday, projected opening day starter Kris Medlen grabbed his right elbow and walked in the middle of the fourth against the Mets. The Braves later said he had a strained right forearm and would undergo further tests. Jason Heyward homered on Cliff Lees second pitch of the game, sending a drive over the fence and beyond the palm trees on the concourse at Bright House Field. It was Heywards third homer. Atlantas Dan Uggla hit his first home run.Marlins 11, Mets 1PORT ST. LUCIE Giancarlo Stanton hit a long home run for the second straight day, a two-run drive off Jack Leathersich in the seventh inning that hit the top of a practice field behind the left-field wall during the Miami Marlins 11-1 rout of the New York Mets. Reed Johnson went 5 for 5 for the Marlins, and Ed Lucas was 2 for 4 with a two-run triple. Bartolo Colon made his exhibition debut for the Mets and allowed three runs and five hits in four innings with one walk and one strikeout. Signed to a $20 million, two-year contract during the offseason, Colon gave up Lucas triple followed by Jake Marisnicks RBI groundout. Marlins starter Brad Hand struck out five in three scoreless innings, giving up three hits.Orioles 7, Pirates 6BRADENTON Russell Martin hit his fourth home run of a torrid spring training, but Steve Pearce and Michael Almanzar each hit tworun homers to lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 7-6 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Martin singled and hit a two-run drive off Orioles starter Chris Tillman. In six games this spring, Martin is 8 for 15 with nine RBIs. He did not hit a home run in three of his previous four spring trainings with the Pirates, New York Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers. Steve Clevenger hit a solo home run off Pirates starter Jay Jackson. Tillman worked 3 1/3 innings and allowed five runs on five hits. He struck out four and hit a batter.Angels 8, Indians 3GOODYEAR, Ariz. Collin Cowgills two-run homer off Trevor Bauer highlighted a three-run fifth inning that carried the Los Angeles Angels over the Cleveland Indians 8-3. Cowgill played in 50 games last season for the Angels after coming from the New York Mets in a midseason trade. Grant Green, competing for a job as the Angels utility infielder, had two hits. The outing was a setback for Bauer, who is trying for the Indians fifth spot in the rotation. He had allowed just two runs in five innings coming into the game. Danny Salazar, who impressed the Indians late in the season, made his first start of the spring. He gave up one run on two hits in 1 2/3 innings. Michael Bourn made a running catch of Greens long drive to straightaway center field with the bases loaded to save Salazar from being charged with more runs.Dodgers 8, Athletics 8, 9 inningsGLENDALE, Ariz. Andre Ethier hit a three-run homer and Juan Uribe added a solo shot in the first inning off Oaklands Jarrod Parker as the Los Angeles Dodgers and As played to an 8-all tie. The game was stopped after nine innings. Ethier got his first homer this spring by launching a long drive over the center-field wall. Carl Crawford walked and Hanley Ramirez singled before Ethier homered. A candidate to start on opening day, Parker allowed four hits and struck out five in 4 2/3 innings. Hyun-Jin Ryu, who will start on March 23 in the Dodgers seasonopening series against Arizona in Australia, worked five innings. He struck out four and allowed three hits, including a home run to Michael Taylor in the fifth. The As tied it in the eighth with five runs. They rallied against three relievers, including Brian Wilson, who left after throwing 13 pitches.White Sox 6, Brewers 3PHOENIX Chris Sale breezed into the fifth inning with two-hit ball shortly after being chosen the White Soxs opening-day starter, and Chicago beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-3. Sale struck out three in 4 1/3 innings, allowing only a two-out single to Khris Davis in the first and a twoout single to Jean Segura in the third. The two-time All-Star allowed six earned runs in 2 2/3 innings in his previous Cactus League start against San Diego, but he was much sharper this time. The White Sox took a 4-3 lead in the ninth when Jared Mitchell scored on a fielders choice by Jeff Keppinger. Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke challenged umpire Scott Barrys call at home plate but it was upheld by video replay. Andy Wilkins followed with a two-run single. Roenicke has now challenged five calls this spring with all five being upheld by the umpires. Jordan Danks snapped a scoreless tie with a two-run homer off Brewers reliever Johnny Hellweg in the seventh.Cubs 3, Giants 2SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Matt Cain pitched five perfect innings for the San Francisco Giants, but the Chicago Cubs rallied for a 3-2 victory. The right-hander, who will be the Giants No. 2 starter behind lefthander Madison Bumgarner during the regular season, threw 59 pitches and struck out seven. Right-hander Jeff Samardzija, the Cubs opening-day starter, also had an effective outing. He gave up two runs in four innings and struck out five. Pablo Sandovals two-run single in the fourth gave the Giants an early lead, but the Cubs scored a run in the sixth and two in the seventh. The decisive run scored on two infield errors as part of the same play.Royals 8, Mariners (ss) 2PEORIA, Ariz. Robinson Cano returned from a four-game absence after a root canal procedure and went 3 for 3 as a split squad of Seattle Mariners lost to the Kansas City Royals 8-2. Cano missed four games following the dental work. He singled twice off James Shields, already picked to start on opening day. The Royals ace later picked off Cano at third base. The new Mariners second baseman also started a double play to end the first. Mike Moustakas singled twice and drove in two runs for the Royals. Billy Butler doubled, singled and scored twice. Alex Gordon doubled in two runs during a five-run third for the Royals. Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez left after two innings with a bruise on his left palm after being hit with a foul tip.Padres 5, Rockies 0SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. Andrew Cashner threw four more scoreless innings in the San Diego Padres 5-0 win over the Colorado Rockies. In line to start opening day, Cashner hasnt allowed a run or walk in nine innings this spring training. He finished the 2013 regular season with a 16-inning shutout streak. Cashner gave up at least one hit in every inning, including consecutive singles by Jordan Pacheco and Charlie Blackmon starting the third. But he retired his next three batters, striking out Carlos Gonzalez between groundouts by Michael Cuddyer and Troy Tulowitzki. Cashner threw 34 of 50 pitches and also singled. Ryan Jackson hit a two-run homer off Franklin Morales in the second. Gonzalez had two of Colorados nine hits.Rangers 8, Reds 2SURPRISE, Ariz. Yu Darvish pitched five positive innings and Jurickson Profar homered as the Texas Rangers beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-2. Darvish allowed two runs and five hits, striking out one without a walk. He yielded RBI doubles to Jay Bruce in the fourth and Ramon Santiago in the fifth. Profar homered off Reds starter Homer Bailey in the third and ranks second in the Cactus League with 11 RBIs. Bailey gave up two runs on three hits, while striking out five and walking none. The Rangers seized the lead in the fifth on Elvis Andrus two-out, two-run single. Adam Rosales contributed a tworun single in the Rangers four-run fourth off Curtis Patch.Astros 7, Nationals 3VIERA Gio Gonzalez struck out the first five batters he faced then struggled to get out of the second inning as the Washington Nationals lost to the Houston Astros 7-3. Carlos Corporan followed George Springers two-out infield hit, which tipped off of Gonzalez glove, with a two-run homer. Gonzalez then gave up a walk, a double and hit a batter to load the bases before escaping on a flyball out. Of perhaps more concern to the Nationals is that closer Rafael Soriano had his second rough outing, giving up five runs on five hits in just 2/3 of an inning. Houston starter Lucas Harrell allowed one run and recorded 10 groundball outs in four innings. Associated PressThe Detroit Tigers Ezequiel Carrera is safe at second base under the tag of St. Louis Cardinals infielder Mark Ellis after hitting a double in the fourth inning Monday in Jupiter. More newcomers crowding the PGA Tour landscape Associated PressDORAL The road to the Masters is just getting started, and already two players have combined to win five times on the PGA Tour. Theyre not Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. How many would have guessed Jimmy Walker (three wins) and Patrick Reed (two wins) when the wraparound season began in October? Reed might have had his hand up. In a moment of bravado on national television after he went wire to wire (with ties) to win the Cadillac Championship, the 23-yearold Reed said, Im one of the top five players in the world. I feel like Ive proven myself. He has won twice this season, three times dating to August. Reed and Walker are the latest newcomers to winning on the strongest tour in golf. Harris English won in Mexico last November for his second PGA Tour title in six months. Jordan Spieth won in July, and he started this year by giving himself three chances to win. Its just another example that winning is getting hard, even for those who are used to winning a lot. Each season seems to bring a new crop of younger players who have a lot of game and no fear. Russell Henley won the Sony Open in his debut as a PGA Tour member. Just over a year later, he overcame a two-shot lead playing with Rory McIlroy in the final group at the Honda Classic and won a four-hole playoff. Scott Stallings won at Torrey Pines for his third PGA Tour win. Hes 28. The last three winners of the World Golf Championships Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Reed are all in their 20s. Ten of the 17 winners this season are in their 20s. That includes 26-year-old Chesson Hadley, who won the Puerto Rico Open on Sunday about the time Reed was beating the strongest field so far this year at Doral. Look at Russell Henley hes won twice, Reed said. Harris English has won twice, Jordan Spieth won once. Myself, Ive won three times. Its just one of those things that weve worked very hard all of us to get where we are. And its definitely shown what we are doing is working. To see the young guys coming out and playing and putting it to the veterans is always nice. Walker turned 35 in January, so its hard to consider him one of the younger players. Then again, injuries slowed the start of his career. And once he finally won at the Frys.com Open to kick off the new wraparound season, he has made it a habit. Over the weekend, Walker talked about new opportunities that have come his way following his three wins. Hes not interested in anything but playing good golf. Now that he has tasted winning, his appetite is only growing. Walker leads the FedEx Cup and the Ryder Cup standings. Johnson is No. 2 on both lists, while Reed is at No. 3 in the FedEx and No. 4 in the Ryder Cup. Five of the top nine players in the Ryder Cup standings were not on the last U.S. team at Muirfield Village for the Presidents Cup. Remember, its still only March. The first of four majors has yet to be played. Reed has never even played in a major. He rubbed a few people the wrong way when he declared himself among the top five in the world (hes actually No. 20). It showed what he thought about his game and that hes not afraid to say it. So if hes top five, who are the other four? Tiger Woods, of course, Reed said. And that was as far as he got before he smiled and said, You know, good question. I said top 5. I didnt know where I was going to be in the top 5. He then went on to mention Masters champion Adam Scott (No. 2 in the world) and Mickelson (No. 5). He mentioned how impressed he was with Graeme McDowell, and having played Saturday with Johnson, he acknowledged how good he could be when he gets on a roll. And the list stopped there, right when it was starting to grow. The ranking (determined over two years) has Henrik Stenson at No. 3, Day at No. 4, McIlroy at No. 6. It was clear that top five was more figure of speech than an actual number. Anyones list of top five is likely to include as many as 10 players these days. Years ago, Colin Montgomerie jokingly said that it was hard to win majors because Woods usually won two of them, Mickelson, Vijay Singh or Ernie Els won another and that left only one for everybody else each year. Twenty-one players have won the last 24 majors. That would seem to make it even harder. Associated PressSince the PGA Tours wraparound season began in October, Jimmy Walker has the most wins to date with three.

HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, MARCH 11, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE The fact is, muscle and ligament wear and tear in and around the foot can affect the joints of the ankle, knee, hip, sacroiliac and spine. A misalignment in the foot (due to injury, arthritis, damage caused by poor-fitting shoes, etc.) affects the alignment of the ankle, and this affects alignment of the knee, which affects alignment in the hip, which affects alignment of the sacroiliac joint, which affects alignment of the spine. Them bones, them bones, indeed!All is connectedThe nervous system controls the amount of tension in the muscles and ligaments that control the joint. This tension on the attached muscles and ligaments tracks the bones through the joint movement. Because joints are designed to move in specific directions, an abnormal amount of force exerted by tissues on one side of the bone or bones will pull joints in directions and through motions that they are not designed to accommodate. And, as might be expected in a linked chain, abnormal movement in a joint below affects the joints above, including the spine. Over time, the uneven tension wears out the smooth cartilage surface of the joint, eventually resulting in pain, locking up of the joint, and such obviously abnormal alignments as knock knees, feet turning out (a sign of ankle pronation), or sacroiliac rotation. The legs should be straight, vertically, and when the ankles turn in or the knees bow in or out instead, this puts extra stress on the hip and sacroiliac joint, leading to further problems. The chiropractic approach to helping these bones line up again is to start with their base cause (at the lowest affected extremity) stimulating the muscles and following up with appropriate exercises to correct the abnormal movement of the joints of the arms and legs. Neuromechanical impulse adjusting of the muscles and ligaments, for example, uses a low force instrument adjustment tool to stimulate the nerve endings, called mechanoreceptors, that give feedback to the brain and spinal cord. A toe-to-head solutionBy applying gentle instrument stimulus to rhythmically tap the overly excited muscle mechanical nerve receptor, then adjusting the joint that that muscle is tracking incorrectly, and following these actions with guidance in performing proper exercises, chiropractic can stop the early degeneration of osteoarthritis, whether it be of the spine, the hip, the knee, or the ankle. The early signs of bunions and hammer toes can be corrected this way as well. This approach has helped many people postpone surgeries such as knee and hip replacements, and may even alleviate the need for surgery altogether (because surgery is always risky, it should be a last resort). For those who have already tried surgery, this approach can be used to keep the alignments true. The alignment process outlined above may have some of you thinking: Ah! Physical therapy. However, chiropractic is generally a superior approach for ankle, knee, As children, most of us learned that the leg bone is connected to the knee bone (some of you, in fact, will now be humming that all day). Unfortunately, as we have grown older, too many have forgotten the crucial line of connection from foot bone to hip and backbone. Dr. Cheryl McFarland-BryantBETTER HEALTH See BONES/ Page C3 000HF3Y

In my last column, I talked about the importance of learning to read and understand the Nutrition Facts labels on packaged foods and making healthy food choices for yourself and your loved ones. Today I am writing about the first item on the Nutrition Facts label: fats. Our bodies need a certain amount of fat to remain healthy. Young children need fat to develop healthy brains and nervous systems. Fats give us energy, and some vitamins need fat to dissolve and be absorbed by the body. However, consuming too much fat, and the wrong kinds of fats, is linked to cardiovascular disease, strokes, Type 2 diabetes, obesity and some types of cancer. The fats part of the Nutrition Facts label tells you how much trans fat, saturated fat, polyunsaturated fat and monounsaturated fat is contained in a food. Eating good fats the monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats found in vegetable oils (olive, canola, sunflower, soy, and corn), nuts, seeds, and fish actually lowers disease risk. Eating saturated and trans fats the bad fats increases risk of disease. Foods high in saturated fats include red meat, butter, cheese and ice cream. Choose foods that are low in saturated fats and have more good fats than bad fats. Trans fats are formed artificially when liquid vegetable oils are converted into solids through a process called hydrogenation. They are used to prolong shelf life and improve the texture of foods, and have no known health benefit. Trans fats are most often found in fried foods, vegetable shortenings, hard margarine, and processed cookies, crackers, baked goods and chips. Many food manufacturers and restaurants have now removed or reduced trans fats in their products. A manufacturer is allowed to list grams of trans fat if the product contains less than 500 mg. That means you could still consume significant amounts of trans fat if you eat several servings of a processed food. If partially hydrogenated oils is on the ingredients list that follows the Nutrition Facts label, the product contains some trans fats. Remember that any type of fat is high in calories. Use oil sparingly in your cooking, choose lean cuts of meat, and trim off excess fat before cooking. Use liquid plant oils for cooking and baking rather than shortening or butter. Packaged meats also have Nutrition Facts labels that allow you to compare the fat content of one cut of meat with another. The Food and Drug Administration has clear guidelines for the fat content of foods that are labeled low fat, fat-free, lean and light. Foods labeled low fat are not necessarily healthier, because they may contain extra sugars, carbohydrates or artificial sweeteners to enhance the flavor and texture. Remember that your body needs a certain amount of fat to stay healthy, and that by concentrating too much on low-fat foods you could miss out on other important nutrients. Be on the lookout for hidden fats in breads, baked goods, snack foods, canned soups, and cereals. For example, a granola cereal might contain five times more fat than a simple whole-grain cereal. Compare the labels carefully before you buy, and establish a tradition that will keep you and your family healthy!

Many of the cancers related to tobacco use could be eliminated if people just gave up smoking. But we also know how addictive tobacco is and how hard it is to quit. Many people dont recognize the link to tobacco use and cancer of the urinary tract, including the kidneys and bladder. Now, research provides us even more data about this link. In a recent study from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, researchers found that patients who smoke and are diagnosed with clear cell renal cell carcinoma, a type of kidney cancer, show a decline in their survival related to smoking that is not seen in non-smokers. Specifically, this data published recently in the Journal of Urology showed a strong link between smoking and an increased risk of dying from kidney cancer and many other causes, as well. In this study, researchers examined the impact of smoking exposure on cancer-specific survival in a fairly large group of 1,625 patients with clear cell renal cell carcinoma. Data was collected from patients treated with surgery from 1995 through 2012, and the correlations between smoking status with advanced disease and cancer-specific survival were determined during a median follow-up of 4.5 years. The researchers found that a smoking history of 20 packyears or greater was associated with a significantly increased risk of advanced disease when patient were diagnosed. Researchers estimate the amount of tobacco a patient has been exposed to by looking at what are called pack-years. If a person has smoked a pack of cigarettes per day for 20 years, they have a 20 pack-year smoking history (1 times 20 equals 20), two packs a day for 20 years calculates out to a 40-pack year history. This data showing a trend toward the adverse effect of smoking on those diagnosed with a cancer of the kidney emphasizes the importance of trying to avoid tobacco altogether, and in those who have already been diagnosed, the importance of trying to quit. It is one of the reasons that treatment plans to promote smoking cessation in survivorship programs are recommended for these patients, as well as all cancer survivors.

It is a common belief that vitamins are natural and cannot hurt. Nothing is further from the truth. An excellent study shows that vitamin E and selenium increases the risk of prostate cancer. This was a SELECT trial. In this trial, 35,000 men older than 50 years were randomly assigned to receive selenium plus placebo, vitamin E plus placebo, selenium plus vitamin E, or placebo alone. This trial was initially reported in 2008. Now, another study has updated that initial analysis. The original investigators had measured the amount of selenium in toenails of the men in the trial, and that data was stored. This analysis included an examination of whether that baseline selenium level had any impact on the development of prostate cancer. The authors found that those men who had received no supplementation had no change in the development of prostate cancer over time. However, those men who were taking selenium and who had a high level of selenium to begin with had a significant, nearly twofold increase in the development of high-risk prostate cancer. Those men taking vitamin E, even those with a low level of selenium, had a significant increase in the risk of developing any prostate cancer and high Gleason score prostate cancer. In prostate cancer, a higher Gleason score means the cancer is faster growing and carries a worse prognosis. This study is very critical in debunking the myth that vitamins do not hurt. Also, there are many early studies which show the benefits of vitamins. Understand, these are poorly done studies or preliminary studies. The confirmatory studies like this one I am reporting do not show significant benefits of vitamins; or even worse, this study shows harmful effects. A common principle is, if it isnt broken, do not fix it. You do not need to take vitamins because a friend advises you or it is well advertised. As per the American Cancer Society: 1) Supplements are not the same as food. No supplement can fully replace a healthy diet. 2) More is not always better. Make sure to tell your health care provider about any supplements you are taking. 3) Supplements are not regulated by the FDA. Thats right no oversight. Given the fact that we know toxicities and overdoses can occur, and that some trials have shown harm from supplements, its wise not to go overboard on supplements.Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Buses, trains, airplanes, hotels and popular travel sites are teeming with disease. It is hard enough these days to save money to go on a vacation. Vacations are expensive and so you want to make sure you stay healthy and do not get sick. Most common illnesses are upper respiratory, like a cold. Flu is another viral problem that can be transmitted easily. Bronchitis, coughing and gastrointestinal problems, as witnessed by the number of events that happen on cruise ships, just to name a few, are other problems encountered when traveling. Research suggests about a quarter of people who travel and vacation report getting sick a week after they arrive back home. Viruses and microorganisms are in the air. They are on surfaces and with todays modern travel, people cross paths from all corners of the globe and spread their disease. Simple transmissions of microorganisms include coughing and sneezing that aerosolizes the disease and it hits all types of surfaces that are touched repeatedly by people and carried on to the next individual. Think about how many people sat in the seat on your airplane before you flew and multiply that by hours and days. Viruses can linger on surfaces for quite a long time, and still be quite virulent and get people sick. First things first, be healthy, eat right, exercise, make sure your body and your immune system is in tiptop shape. When you get on the airplane, carry along with some disinfecting wipes and wash your hands frequently. Just imagine how many people have read that airplane magazine before you. Avoid door handles use automatic doors. If you must touch a door, use a paper towel. Once you get to your hotel, get out the wipes and wipe off handles, doorknobs, light switches, telephone and probably the grossest item in the hotel room, the remote control. Do not use the coffeemaker and use disposable glasses to drink water and store your toothbrush in. When you are having a good time on your vacation, watch the amount of alcohol and caffeine you consume because it can have a negative effect on your immune system and set you up for infection. Avoid rubbing your eyes, touching your nose, mouth or face, which amazingly we do almost hundreds of times a day. This is an excellent way of introducing microorganisms and viruses into your system and getting you sick. When you are traveling in certain countries, avoid tap water, ice at the bar and fresh fruits and vegetables. Take a few extra steps to make sure your vacation will be an enjoyable and healthy one.

For one thing, in the State of Florida physical therapists are not allowed to manipulate or adjust per state law and thus may not be able to do all that can be done to help you stop degeneration. For another, physical therapy relies heavily upon stretching, and peer-reviewed, double-blind studies have shown that stretches, improperly done, can actually cause harm. A chiropractor can guide you in active stretches, done in-clinic, in which the patient moves the joint and then the massage therapist or doctor just adds a second or two of extra pressure (one such method is called active isolated stretching and was developed by Aaron Mattes, who has an institute in Sarasota, devoted to teaching this form of therapy). Active stretches are performed after exercises to strengthen the muscles surrounding the abnormal joint. No gym membership requiredExercises? Now you are envisioning a sweaty round of weight lifting, arent you? Relax. Your chiropractor will tailor a few exercises to strengthen the specific muscles that, in your unique case, are too weak to oppose the over-stimulated muscles. The combination of a weak muscle and muscles stuck in the on position (hypertonic) causes the bones to move in poor tracking patterns. As explained previously, this tension wears out the joint cartilage. The Doctor of Chiropractic manipulates the muscles using gentle instrument thrusts with power tools with names such as Impulse or Pro-Adjuster or Arthrostim. The chiropractor will feel for the hypertonic, or overly tight, tender muscle belly, which is the location of over-stimulated mechanoreceptor. Mechanoreceptors are the muscles connection to the nervous system, giving feedback to it regarding the state of pressure on the receptor. Tendon and ligament mechanoreceptors are reset with instruments as well. Using these gentle approaches to rehabilitate joints, modern chiropractic methods can correct alignment and stop or reverse the degeneration processes referred to as osteoarthritis, degenerative arthritis, and old age wear and tear. Before you consider surgery for any kind of joint problem, consider making an appointment with a Doctor of Chiropractic first. It could keep those bones jumping.Dr. Cheryl McFarland-Bryant maintains an active Florida Medical Technologist license. Contact her at 352-795-8911 or visit 6166 W.

HEALTH& LIFECITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLETUESDAY, MARCH11, 2014 C3 BONESContinued from Page C1 QUESTION: I heard that a new drug was approved for people with Parkinsons disease. What can you tell me about it? ANSWER: The FDA recently approved Northera (droxidopa) to treat a rare, chronic condition known as neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (NOH) that can occur in people with Parkinsons disease and some other disorders. NOH can cause a sharp drop in blood pressure when a person gets up from bed or a chair, which can result in dizziness, falls or even loss of consciousness. Northera or droxidopa, is known as an oral prodrug that is changed in the body to norepinephrine, a chemical that narrows (constricts) blood vessels and raises blood pressure. Northera is taken orally three times a day: upon arising in the morning; midday; and late afternoon at least 3 to 4 hours prior to bedtime. Other nondrug measures that can be taken to try and prevent NOH include getting up slowly, raising the head of the bed, keeping the blood volume expanded by increasing salt and water intake, and using compression stockings. The effectiveness of Northera was shown through two-weeks in two clinical trials in people with NOH. People taking Northera reported a decrease in dizziness, lightheadedness, feeling faint, or feeling as if they might black out compared to those taking an inactive pill (placebo). The improvement in patient symptoms beyond two weeks has not been demonstrated in clinical studies, but droxidopa has been used in Japan to treat NOH since 1989. The most common adverse events reported by clinical trial participants taking Northera were headache, dizziness, nausea, high blood pressure (hypertension) and fatigue. However, Northera has a boxed warning to alert health care professionals and patients about the risk of increased blood pressure while lying down (supine hypertension), a common problem that affects people with NOH and can cause stroke. It is essential that patients be reminded that they must sleep with their head and upper body elevated. Supine blood pressure should be monitored prior to and during treatment and more frequently when increasing doses. The manufacturer of Northera is planning to conduct a large post-approval study to assess its long-term safety and effectiveness.Richard P.

I am so embarrassed by my mouth, not to mention the pain I am in because of continuous infections. I am 45 years old and have gotten to the point where I have to get my mouth taken care of. My husband and I have just moved to Citrus County and before I start looking for a job, I want to get my teeth fixed. All of my back teeth have already been removed 2 years ago. All I have left are my front teeth on the top and stubs for my bottom front teeth. The top teeth are badly decayed and the bottom ones get all the infections. I am afraid to take the first step to go to the dentist, so I thought I would write to you first. I want my teeth out and dentures made. I might want implants in the future, but have to figure out how to afford this first. I hope you can help me get over my nervousness. A: First of all, thanks for sending this question in. I have had many questions very similar to yours in the past. It is the start of something very exciting for you. I know that the thought of all of this can be overwhelming to you. However, I have seen many people with your exact circumstances have a life-changing event surrounding the restoration of their mouth. The end result can be incredible. Patients have gone from ignoring their appearance to wearing makeup, going to the hair stylist and starting a whole new wardrobe. From what you have described, it sounds as though the best plan for you will be to have what is called immediate dentures made. What this means for you is that your dentist takes impressions of your teeth and gums as they are and makes you a set of teeth. You and your dentist will choose the color and shape of your teeth. Pictures of you with your teeth before the decay you now have can be very helpful. You can point out things that you liked about them and things you would like to see different. You can also bring in magazine photos that you like and show them to your dentist. In many cases, things you like about smiles and appearance can be incorporated into your smile. Once all of the details are worked out, your teeth will be removed and the dentures will be put in. By doing things this way, you never go without teeth. There will be a period of adjustment to your new teeth. During this time your dentist will make any necessary adjustment to the dentures for your comfort. At some time in the future, your dentist will either reline or remake your teeth. This decision depends on many factors. I hope this has helped put you at ease. If you focus on the end result, and not the steps to get there, you will do great. I have been witness to so many success stories. Like so many things in life, if you know where you are and where you want to be, all you have to do it take the right steps in between and before you know it you are there. The neat thing here is your dentist can help you with the steps necessary. Dont worry you can have an awesome smile and feel great about yourself.Dr. Frank Vascimini is a dentist practicing in Homosassa. Send your questions to 4805 S.

C8TUESDAY, MARCH11, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.George Orwell claimed, One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes a revolution in order to establish a dictatorship. At the bridge table, one sometimes establishes a winner in order to safeguard a contract as in this deceptive deal. South reaches four hearts. What should he do after West leads the diamond king? Norths three-diamond jump-cue-bid below three of partners suit was a Mixed Raise. It showed four-card heart support, 7-9 high-card points and nine losers: a hand too good for a pre-emptive jump-raise to three hearts and too weak for a game-invitational two-diamond cuebid raise. The original South won with his diamond ace, drew trumps and played a spade to dummys 10. East won with his jack and returned a diamond. Declarer ruffed and took a second failing spade finesse. Later, he lost two club tricks to go down one. Agreed, it was unlucky that all four key cards were offside, but South could have survived. After drawing trumps, declarer should have attacked clubs. West would have won with his queen and shifted to a spade, but South would have taken a finesse. East would have won and led back a diamond. South would have ruffed and played the club king. West could have won this trick or the next and led a spade, but declarer would have won with dummys ace and discarded dummys last spade on his fourth club. Then, finally, South would have ruffed his third spade. He would have taken one spade, five hearts, one diamond, two clubs and that spade ruff on the board.

When he divorced for the second time, we offered to let him live rent-free in the guesthouse behind our home. In the past three years, our feelings for him have disintegrated. Dad does absolutely nothing to earn his keep. When he moved in, we bought him a flat-screen TV, gave him furniture and helped decorate. We havent asked for money, and he has never offered to lift a finger. Shouldnt he at least weed his area, clean out his garage and shovel snow around his door? Dad is 73 and in good health. We pay for his electricity, satellite TV and Internet. We gave him one of our cars, and it took a year before he started chipping in on the insurance premiums. He would never think to have the oil changed. The money is not the problem. Its that Dad is so irresponsible, ungrateful and disrespectful. He walks into my house without knocking and scares me to death. He leaves his cigarette butts in a beer can on my front porch. I have him over for dinner once a week, and he eats like a glutton, devouring all the weeks leftovers. He never reciprocates in any way. Im sick of his lazy and thoughtless ways, and so is my husband. My father-in-law is completely self-centered, and it is not lost on me why he is twice divorced. What can I do? Finished with Him Dear Finished: First talk to your husband so the two of you are in agreement about Dad. Then tell Dad what the new rules are and what you expect. We also suggest you lock your doors, put your leftovers in the freezer before he comes over and start charging him rent. Dear Annie: My parents are compulsive hoarders. They keep everything. They have clothing that hasnt been worn in 35 years, furniture they no longer use, reference books that are outdated, and stacks of magazines, newspapers and boxes of papers that pose a fire hazard. I would like to give things away and throw things out, but my hands are tied. I am not allowed to sort through any of their junk, because I might toss something they need. But I know theyd never begin to find that something amidst all the clutter. They do not realize they have a problem, but its driving me crazy. What can I do? Going Insane Dear Going: Your parents may be overwhelmed with the amount of stuff they have accumulated over the years and even embarrassed to have you go through it. Be sympathetic and respectful toward their choices. Ask sweetly whether they would go through just one box with you to see whats in there that might be worth keeping. If so, you can set aside the things they want, regardless of whether you agree, and get rid of the rest. But if they still refuse or wont admit that crumbling newspapers can be tossed, try to understand that this type of hoarding is a mental illness and requires professional help. See whether there is a hoarding task force in your area, and also contact the International OCD Foundation (ocfoundation.org) for information and referrals. Dear Annie: That letter from Staying Warm in South Dakota saved me a service call to my heating contractor. I had not changed the batteries in my digital thermostat in a long time. After changing them this afternoon, my gas heater is now working just fine. No problem. Thanks.
