Rural King coming to mall A.B. SIDIBE Staff WriterCRYSTAL RIVER The Crystal River Mall is set to be home to Rural King, a fast-growing farm and home store based in the Midwest. Millie Bresnahan, the mall manager, said Monday a deal has been reached with the retail giant and that Rural King will purchase the former Sears store. Bresnahan would not reveal the terms of the deal, only adding that the mall owner is happy with it. Rural King would not confirm that the deal is final, but company spokeswoman Susan Samuelson told the Chronicleshe was aware of talks to move into the mall. She said she would be in a better position to comment later in the week. This is a game-changer for this mall. It is just absolutely fabulous, Bresnahan said. She said Rural King expects to open its doors by September and hopes to hire about 60 people. The mall site will become the fourth Florida store for the company based in Mattoon, Ill. The company has 64 retail stores and distribution centers, mainly in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. Rural King stocks everything ranging from tractor supplies, guns and sporting goods to lawn and garden, pet feed and home repair supplies. I think they like some of the Farm store should open by September See MALL/ Page A11 Traffic signal set for Kensington MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerCitrus Countys newest traffic signal resulted from a request by residents of a Citrus Hills community with backing by the county. The signal at State Road 44 and Kensington Avenue should be operating in a month or two, Department of Transportation spokesman David Botello said. The cost is about $400,000. Residents of Kensington Estates requested the signal because of the difficulty in turning left onto 60-mph S.R. 44. According to the DOT, the intersection experienced 26 accidents from October 2005 to February 2014 and of those, a traffic signal could have prevented 11 of them. Opposite Kensington Avenue is Trail 13, which heads into the Withlacoochee State Forest MATTHEW BECK/ChronicleWorkers Miguel Catalan, left, and Christian Belasic with Florida Safety Contractors Inc. carry a sign toward their foreman, Chris Cooney, on Sunday afternoon as the crew puts up signs at the new traffic signal at State Road 44 and South Kensington Avenue, between Inverness and Lecanto. Residents request spurs action The News Service of FloridaTALLAHASSEE A group of senators will move ahead with a plan to flood the states natural springs with money. But as the Legislature delves this week into the details of the budget, and as a separate large water issue draws attention, the senators say that money for their springs-restoration proposal might take years to get flowing. We look at this as a three-year process, said Sen. Andy Gardiner, an Orlando Republican who is slated to become Senate president after the November elections. Gardiner and Rep. Steve Crisafulli, a Merritt Island Republican who is slated to become House speaker in November, have declared water policy issues as a priority of the 2015 and 2016 sessions. The springs proposal (SB 1576), which got its first committee approval Thursday, seeks $378.8 million. Meanwhile, Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron, R-Stuart, is pushing for about $160 million this year for a variety of projects to reduce pollution runoff from Lake Okeechobee and clean the Florida Everglades. The House budget matches some of Negrons proposal, which was spurred by outcries in his Treasure Coast district about the harmful impacts of the lake runoffs last summer. Asked about the springs last week before the budget numbers were out, Negron said lawmakers were still early in the budgeting process. Id expect there will be some funding for springs in the Senate budget, he added. The House plan, part of a proposed $75.3 billion budget which will be Senators plan multi-year springs restoration See SIGNAL/ Page A11 MIKEWRIGHT Staff writerINVERNESS A partnership that began a year ago to build a YMCA and wellness center on County Road 486 in Lecanto is facing significant challenges as Citrus Memorial Health System inches closer to a new leaseholder.

A2TUESDAY, MARCH25, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLELOCAL 211 South Apopka Avenue Inverness 726-4327 www.InvernessHearing.com Why you should only buy hearing aids from a hearing healthcare professional. Thanks to modern medicine and many other contributing factors, people are living longer than ever before. While this increased longevity is great news, it does come with some side effects like a pronounced increase in people with hearing loss. Hearing loss is increasing. Statistics show us that hearing loss already affects nearly one out of every five American adults. Statistics also tell us that the number increases along with age. Thus, it only makes sense that as more people live longer, more people with hearing loss are seeking help. Hearing aids are a proven solution. Where there is increased demand, there usually is increased supply. And sure enough, from the Internet to retail stores to local insurance providers, there are now more places than ever to purchase hearing aids. Where you get hearing aids is important. But buyer beware. There is no one-sizefits-all solution to hearing loss. Just as every person is unique, every hearing loss and hearing need is unique too. To ensure you get a hearing aid thats custom fit to your precise needs and lifestyle, its always recommended that you consult a hearing healthcare professional. He or she may find other health-related issues that could be causing your hearing loss. Always consult a hearing healthcare professional. The Better Hearing Institute (BHI), a non-profit center for hearing advocacy, recently published a consumer warning about do-it-yourself hearing care, stating, hearing devices that are purchased over-the-counter or Internet without the consultation of a hearing healthcare professional may result in the devices not being accurately customized to the specific hearing needs of the individual. Hearing solutions should be custom-fit to you. Todays best hearing aids are precision instruments, utilizing advanced digital technology that can and should be customized to fit your specific hearing loss and your unique lifestyle needs. Which hearing aids are right for you depend on a variety of important and unique factors, including: The nature and severity of your hearing loss Your eyesight and dexterity The size and shape of your outer and inner ear The types of activities you enjoy Cosmetic concerns Denny Dingler, HAS Andioprosthologist Hearing healthcare professionals make a difference. Only an experienced hearing healthcare professional has the training and stateof-the-art equipment needed to inspect your ear canal, accurately measure your hearing loss, assess your unique needs, and fit you with hearing aids that take all this important and unique information into account. One size does NOT fit all. Sergei Kochkin, Executive Director of the BHI reiterates this point, writing in his published warning. The process requires a complete in-person hearing assessment in a sound booth, the training and skills of a credentialed hearing healthcare professional in order to prescriptively fit the hearing aids using sophisticated computer programs; and appropriate in-person follow-up and counseling. This is not possible when consumers purchase one-size-fits-all hearing aids over the Internet or elsewhere. Get the most out of your investment. Hearing aids purchased without the consultation or advice of a hearing healthcare professional risk doing more damage than good to both your confidence and your wallet. Thats because hearing aids purchased without help from an expert might not sound good, might not work well, and probably wont be hearing aids youll want to wear.

Its not even his hopes of finding witnesses to the accident he was in on Feb. 15 in front of Applebees on State Road 44 in Inverness although he would love to talk to the couple he met at the Hospice Thrift Store in Inverness who were buying a recumbent stationary bike and who told him they had seen the accident and they and their church prayed for Jordan and his wife, who were injured. Even more than that, for Jordan, a lifelong motorcycle rider, his interest in telling his story is to let people know what to do and what not to do when the traffic light turns yellow, especially when motorcycles are present. And its also about the sensors attached to some traffic signals around Citrus County, what they are and arent. (Hint: Theyre not cameras.) We were coming from Lowes down (State Road) 44, approaching the intersection by Applebees, Jordan said. I saw the light had changed to yellow and thought, Well make this no problem. All of a sudden, as Jordan recalled, he saw the car in front of him that was already well into the intersection stop and then he saw its back-up lights come on. This is not going to be fun, he said, and leaned his motorcycle to the right, hitting a patch of grease on the road and then skidding into the back of the car in front of him. Both he and his wife were injured and lost consciousnesss, and were transferred to Citrus Memorial hospital. The next morning, a Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy came to the Jordans house and handed Jordan a citation for careless driving. Jordan disagrees with that, insisting the driver of the white car that he hit had stopped and backed up. He said he has seen this happen more and more, especially as communities have installed red-light cameras that take photos of people running red lights, triggering automatic, costly citations. Jordan said the couple he met at the Hospice Thrift Store told him that the other driver thought she would get a ticket and thats why she backed up. However, according to Jordan, she didnt tell that to the deputy at the accident scene, at least it wasnt in the traffic report, so Jordan has no corroborating witness. I was so concerned about my wife in the hospital that I didnt get the couples names, Jordan said. Regardless, what the other driver and many other drivers may think are red-light cameras located underneath local traffic lights are not cameras at all. They are red-light confirmation devices, white lights that light up when the signal is red, allowing deputies to monitor intersections from any angle watching for red-light violators. In Citrus County, installation of the sensors began in 2004. However, as Jordan explained, its the red-light cameras, or the fear of them, that he believes causes some drivers to panic, and thats dangerous, especially for people on motorcycles. Last July, Dunnellon did away with its three cameras, even though the city generated more than $500,000 in fines in the first six months after they were installed. Tampa is considering doing away with its, as well. Nearby Brooksville, however, has a thriving red-light camera program, generating $2,348,196 in fiscal year 2013. Citrus County is camerafree and there are currently no plans to install them. As for what to do when approaching an intersection? According to Florida law, once a vehicle passes the stop line in an intersection, the driver is required to go through and not stop and definitely not back up, said Citrus County Sheriffs Office deputy Russ Howard. The lights are geared to the speed in the area, he said. So, if the speed limit is 45 miles per hour, the lights cycle at a certain rate, allowing you adequate time to stop and not slam on the brakes. We obviously want the public to be safe when they go through these lights, and to pay attention.Contact Chronicle reporter Nancy Kennedy at 352-564-2927 or nkennedy @chronicleonline.com. NANCY KENNEDY /ChronicleOn Feb. 15, Ray Jordan and his wife, Jeanie, were in a wreck while riding their motorcycle. Jordan believes one of the reasons for the crash was the panic reaction of the driver in front of him who mistook the traffic signal sensor for a red-light camera, put on the brakes while in the intersection and backed up.

Youre not alone. When Property Appraiser Les Cook announced a settlement in the two lawsuits filed by Duke over its 2012 and 2013 assessments, lots of numbers were tossed about. The biggest reason cited for the difference between the property appraisers assessment in 2012 and 2013 and the final settlement was a judges ruling in the lawsuits that expensive pollution-control equipment should be assessed as salvage. That significantly knocks down the taxable value. With Cooks help, heres data that shows how the property appraiser (P .A.), Duke and the final settlement compared in value and taxes paid for 2012, 2013 and 2014.

From staff reports STATE& LOCAL Page A3TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE PATFAHERTY Staff writerA ruling by the United States Court of Federal Claims will allow Duke Energy to recover some of the money it had to invest for disposing spent nuclear fuel. An amended judgment came down March 21, awarding the company approximately $103.7 million to settle a lawsuit initiated by the Florida Power Corp. and Carolina Power & Light Company as subsidiaries of Progress Energy. Just over $21 million of the settlement applies to claims for the Crystal River nuclear plant. Three other Duke plants were also involved. The government disputed all Crystal River costs, which included moving the 110 dry-storage casks from the reactor buildings to the dry storage site. The lawsuit has it roots in the Nuclear Waste Policy Act passed by Congress in 1983. Under the act the Department of Energy charged fees based on electricity production in exchange for its obligation to dispose of spent nuclear fuel. Through Dec. 31, 2010, Progress Energy paid approximately $820 million in fees for spent fuel that was never removed or stored. Subsequently, the utility maintained it would not have built a dry storage facility at Crystal River (CR3) if DOE had followed through on its obligation. The $21 million award will help reduce the amount customers will pay to construct the dry-cask storage facility at the Crystal River Nuclear Plant, explained Duke spokeswoman Heather Danenhower. However, a portion of this money is allocated to our nine minority owners (8.22 percent, or $1.73 million) and wholesale portion (8.32 percent, or $1.60 million). That means $17.67 million will directly benefit retail customers. She said the award will not affect the decommissioning plan or timeline at CR3. We are pleased the court recognized the validity of our claims regarding costs incurred for dry fuel storage between 2006 and 2010, Danenhower said. We will continue to seek recovery of these costs from the federal government. The Department of Energy has 60 days to appeal. Duke awarded spent nuke fuel costs Lawsuit related to storage expenses was originally initiated by Progress Energy NANCYKENNEDY Staff writerLECANTO Big Macand McCaffans, mark your calendar for April 21.

Fox said the restaurant, whose owner/operator is Juan Prado, features side-by-side drive-through lanes with a third pull forward window and digital menu boards. The grand opening celebration is scheduled for Monday, May 12, through Saturday, May 17, with daily menu deals, a Ronald McDonald meet and greet, face painting, door prizes and a grand prize drawing on Saturday. The local McDonalds organization is communicating with local school partners to possibly secure school band and/or cheerleader participation during the grand opening week, Fox said. They believe in being a great community business partner and already have relationships with schools in the area.

Charles had told the shows producers that I was ready for the next chapter of my life, both creatively and personally, in an interview excerpt provided by CBS on Monday. In a true surprise for viewers of the show, Gardner was gunned down in a Chicago courtroom by his unhinged client. Gardner was one of the shows central characters as the former colleague and lover of Alicia Florrick, the wife played by series star JuliannaMargulies. The twist will force Margulies character to examine all aspects of her life, producers said. Shes going to miss the existence of Will, Margulies said of her character.

Dave Brockie, who as Oderus Urungus fronted the alien-costumed heavy metal band GWAR during graphic and fake-blood-soaked stage shows for more than three decades, has died. He was 50. Officers were called to Brockies home Sunday evening and found the singer dead inside the home, Richmond police spokeswoman Dionne Waugh said Monday. Detectives dont suspect foul play at this time, and the medical examiners office will determine cause of death, Waugh said. The band founded in 1984 is known for its comically grotesque costumes, stage antics and vulgar lyrics. GWAR was nominated for a Grammy Award for best long-form music video in 1993 for Phallus in Wonderland but lost to Diva by Annie Lennox It also was nominated for best metal performance for S.F.W. in 1996 but lost to Happiness In Slavery by Nine Inch Nails. GWAR released its latest album, Battle Maximus, in September 2013 and recently toured Australia and Japan. Over the summer, the band held its 4th annual GWAR-B-Q at a small water park in Richmond and released its own canned craft beer for the occasion made by Cigar City Brewing in Tampa.

He said the foundation should decide well before September whether to continue with the YMCA commitment, or create a separate philanthropic organization to carry donations forward. None of Citrus Memorials commitments comes from the hospital itself. The hospital, through its advisory board, raised the $2 million from donors for a new wellness center, originally planned at the Allen Ridge medical complex. Citrus Memorial and the YMCA agreed instead to pool resources for the new YMCA and wellness center on C.R. 486. Stillwell said he doesnt believe HCA has an interest in operating a wellness center. With that possibility in mind, if the hospital foundation chooses to continue with the partnership, it should ask the YMCA to commit to operating the wellness center, Stillwell said. Stillwell said wishes of the philanthropic advisory board should be considered. We hold this money in trust for the people who raised it, he said. Board members didnt say when they would decide the YMCA issue. CMHContinued from Page A1

Interestrates Associated PressNEW YORK A sell-off in technology stocks Monday pulled the broader market lower as investors unloaded some of the biggest names in the industry. Netflix fell 7 percent, Facebook fell 5 percent, and Google and Amazon.com each fell more than 2 percent. Tech stocks have soared over the past year, pushing the Nasdaq composite index up 30 percent over the past 12 months, more than twice as much as the Dow Jones industrial average. Netflix and Facebook have doubled in price in that time. The big highfliers have done really well, and so I think theres been some profit-taking, said Randy Warren, chief investment officer of Warren Financial Service. The Nasdaq lost 50.4 points, or 1.2 percent, to close at 4,226.39. Other indexes also fell, but not as much. The Standard & Poors 500 index fell 9.08 points, or 0.5 percent, to 1,857.44. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 26.08 points, or 0.2 percent, to 16,276.69. Stocks drifted lower early Monday as traders feared that sanctions against Russia could tip the worlds ninth-largest economy into recession. Investors were also reacting to news that Russian troops had seized Ukrainian ships and military installations in the Crimean peninsula. Russia annexed the region last week. Biotechnology stocks, another sector that has soared over the past year, extended a decline that began Friday after U.S. lawmakers questioned the pricing of a Hepatitis C drug made by Gilead Sciences. A popular fund tracking biotech stocks, the iShares Nasdaq Biotech ETF, fell 3 percent on Monday. Its been up 53 percent over the past 12 months. Its the richest part of the market, so ... youre going to get nervousness, said Jerry Webman, chief economist of Oppenheimer Funds. Among stocks making big moves:Herbalife rose $3.32, or 6.7 percent, to $52.86 after agreeing to back billionaire Carl Icahns three nominees for its board. Icahn is a supporter of the embattled health supplements company in its fight with another famed investor, William Ackman, who has accused the company of operating a pyramid scheme.Apple bucked the downward trend in technology stocks. The company rose after The Wall Street Journalreported that Apple is in talks with the giant cable provider Comcast to offer a streaming video service. Apple rose $6.32, or 1 percent, to $539.19. Tech stocks pull market down BusinessBRIEFS Candy Crush maker King to go publicNEW YORK King Digital, the company behind the wildly mobile game Candy Crush Saga, is scheduled to make its debut on the New York Stock Exchange this week. The company could be valued as high as $7.6 billion if its initial public offering prices at $24 per share, the upper end of its expected range. Thats nearly twice as much as its closest rival Zynga Inc., creator of FarmVille. Unlike Zynga, however, King is profitable and has less than a third of Zyngas employee base. The company is offering 15.5 million shares. Existing shareholders are offering another 6.7 million. King expects proceeds of $326 million from the IPO. King, based in Dublin, Ireland, generated revenue of $1.88 billion last year. Thats more than 10 times its 2012 revenue of $164.4 million.Cisco to invest over $1B in cloud computingNEW YORK Cisco says it plans to spend more than $1 billion over the next two years to build up its cloud computing network. Cisco plans to use the money to expand its data centers for the new service to be called Cisco Cloud Services. The move makes the San Jose, Calif.based networking company the latest to enter an arena that caters to the growing number of companies that would rather rent computing space than build their own. One of the biggest players in the market is Amazon.com. IBM Corp. said in January that it will invest $1.2 billion in its cloud computing operations. Cisco says it will work with a set of partners to build up the network. The company already provides cloud-related services, including the online conference provider WebEx.Disney to buy YouTube network Maker for $500MLOS ANGELES Disney said Monday that it is buying YouTube channel operator Maker Studios for $500 million as the family entertainment giant aims to stay in front of younger audiences who are increasingly watching short videos online. The Walt Disney Co. could pay up to $450 million more in bonuses if Maker meets performance targets, the company said. The purchase will give Disney ownership of 55,000 channels including Epic Rap Battles of History and makeup expert Amy Phams The Fashion Statement. Combined, Maker has 380 million subscribers and generates 5.5 billion views per month. Buying Maker Studios will help Disney reach young audiences, said Kevin Mayer, Disneys executive vice president of corporate strategy, in an interview. They have the biggest audience on YouTube. Its very hard to replicate, Mayer said. Mayer also said that Disney could find talent for its TV shows and movies in the YouTube stars on Maker Studios channels. The purchase will dampen Disneys earnings per share mildly through the 2017 fiscal year, Mayer said. Disney shares rose 11 cents to $79.60 in after-hours trading Monday after falling 86 cents, or 1.1 percent, to close at $79.49 in regular trading.JC Penneys reinstalled CEO set for pay hikeNEW YORK J.C. Penneys reinstalled CEO Mike Ullman is poised to get a big pay increase as the chain shows some signs of a turnaround. J.C. Penney Co. could increase Ullmans base salary to $1.5 million for this year, from $810,606 in the fiscal year that ended Feb. 1, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing Monday. He could also get $5.5 million in stock awards and is eligible to receive a $3 million bonus. That potential for a $10 million payout compares with last years $2.4 million in compensation. Ullman returned to the helm in April 2013 when Penney ousted Ron Johnson after 17 months on the job. Johnson had spearheaded a transformation plan that led to a sales plunge and big losses.Venezuela unveils new currency marketCARACAS, Venezuela President Nicolas Maduros cash-strapped government unveiled a new currency market Monday that allows Venezuelans to buy and sell dollars legally for the first time since 2010. Opposition leader Gov. Henrique Capriles said the so-called Sicad 2 exchange system is akin to a devaluation and will eat away at the savings of poor families. The government is counting on the new exchange mechanism to alleviate pressure on a black market Venezuelans turn to when they cant purchase hard currency from the government at the official 6.3 bolivars per dollar rate. Maduros government has been increasingly safeguarding its shrinking supply of dollars as oil production declines and deficit spending remains high. Thats led it to fall behind on payments to foreign airlines and carmakers, exacerbating a shortage of imported goods.Sierra Club threatens to sue Minnesota PowerMINNEAPOLIS The Sierra Club said Monday that it has filed an intent-to-sue notice against Minnesota Power, alleging that the utility has committed nearly 13,000 violations of the Clean Air Act at three coal-fired power plants in northeastern Minnesota. The group alleges that the utilitys data show its Boswell, Taconite Harbor and Laskin plants have violated soot standards more than 10,000 times over the past five years. It also says the utility committed hundreds of violations of permit requirements related to the operation of pollution control equipment, including mercury controls. The environmental group is using a provision of the Clean Air Act that allows citizens to sue to seek enforcement of the law. It says it will sue unless the matter is resolved before the 60-day notice period ends. We recommend they commit to a plan to replacing these dirty coal boilers, said Michelle Rosier, a Sierra Club organizer. The notice names Duluth-based Minnesota Power, parent company Allete and Sun Prairie, Wis.-based WPPI Energy, which owns a share of the Boswell plant. Amy Rutledge, a spokeswoman for Minnesota Power, said the Sierra Clubs allegations were off-base. Were very proud of our strong environmental stewardship record and really dispute the Sierra Clubs claims, Rutledge said. The Sierra Club is using data on opacity, a measure of how much light can pass through a plants plume, as an indicator of particulate levels. But Rutledge said opacity is not a pollutant and can be caused by several factors. The Sierra Club alleges a large number of violations, acknowledged Pat Mullen, vice president of marketing and corporate communications. But he said the company has focused on plant upgrades to reduce the actual pollutants themselves.Greek pharmacies to strike over deal with lendersATHENS, Greece Greeces pharmacies are set to close indefinitely later this week in protest at a recent deal between the government and bailout lenders to deregulate store licenses. Kyriakos Theodosiadis, leader of the Panhellenic Pharmacies Association, said Monday that the government is planning to sweep away longstanding licensing controls to allow the creation of pharmacy chains and outlets in supermarkets. As a result, he said the government had reneged on assurances made to the association and the union would commence its latest strike on Wednesday. The government is expected to submit legislation on major market reforms by the end of the week. From wire reports
OPINION Page A10TUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014 Article assumes too muchThe Associated Press article in todays (March 3), Citrus County Chronicleregarding Bowe Bergdahls capture is the worst journalism I have ever read. How speculative does it get to assume someones motive for being in a situation that gets you captured? The only issue is that Bowe has been in captivity for going on five years, probably in the worst conditions a human can endure. Get off his back for Gods sake and bring Bowe home. Why would AP publish such garbage and not expect uproar from those who have been dedicated and tireless in making this a top priority for our veterans and our country? AP should publish a retraction of this article as it is innuendo, unsubstantiated and bordering on slanderous.Harry B. Oates HomosassaHere we go again, glorifying the pirates I sure dont understand why so many people name baseball teams and have their kids wear pirate costumes on Halloween, and have an entire community celebrate them with Gasparilla. These thugs would rob, rape and murder you if they had a chance. How many people have gone missing while boating? How about thinking about that for a change and stop with the illusion that these thugs are harmless? Ask the people who have had encounters with these killers oh, they are probably dead, cant ask.Elaine Raynor Pine RidgeVote for medical marijuanaI believe a lot of Citrus County residents know of someone that suffers from a debilitating condition. Patients suffering from the pain and anxiety of numerous afflictions can find relief from their symptoms through the use of medical marijuana. Most medical professionals favor the use of medical marijuana (WebMD poll). Since 1996, 20 states and Washington D.C. have approved the lawful use of doctor-prescribed medical marijuana. This year we have an opportunity to approve the use of medical marijuana to alleviate the pain and suffering of our family and friends. I urge everyone to vote yes on Proposition 2 this November.

Acting as if he were endowed by special insight bestowed upon no one else, President George W. Bush declared in 2001 that he had looked Vladimir Putin in the eye and was able to get a sense of his soul. According to the Daily Caller.com, in a 2010 interview with talk radio host Hugh Hewitt, Bush, who was promoting his book Decision Points, was asked about his ability to see into the souls of men. The former president explained, The reason why I said that is because I remembered him talking movingly about his mother and the cross that she gave him that she said she had blessed in Jerusalem. Well, bless my soul, as the saying goes. No doubt several communist leaders in the former Soviet Union had mothers who went to church and took their sons with them until faith became a drag on upward mobility in the Communist Party. It doesnt mean any one of them underwent some drastic religious transformation. What Bush should have asked Putin is whether he shared his mothers faith and if so, what difference that had made on his thinking? Usually when people convert from one belief system to another they give a reason for the shift. Not so with Putin. He has not walked the sawdust trail of redemption and embraced pluralistic, democratic or capitalistic beliefs. Quite the opposite. In a 2005 state of the nation speech, Putin declared: Above all, we should acknowledge that the collapse of the Soviet Union was a major geopolitical disaster of the century. As for the Russian nation, it became a genuine drama. Tens of millions of our cocitizens and co-patriots found themselves outside Russian territory. Moreover, the epidemic of disintegration infected Russia itself. In the Hewitt interview, Bush claimed that since that early meeting with Putin, the Russian leader had become a different person. The other possibility is that Putin has always been the same person, but lied and projected a different image to a gullible Bush who wanted to believe what he thought he saw. Putin and his cronies are now openly mocking the United States. Under President Obama we are becoming a humiliation nation. Meaningless sanctions, which amount to not even a slap on the wrist, are laughed at in Moscow. And the problem with sanctions is that Russia has options, too, like cutting off gas and oil supplies to Europe and making trouble in other former Soviet republics. Recently, Russian news anchor Dmitry Kiselyov took to the Rossiya 1 news channel to declare that Russia is the only country capable of turning the United States into radioactive ashes. A picture of a mushroom cloud was projected on the screen behind him. Iran might see this bragging by Russia as a challenge to its own nuclear ambitions. Understanding ones adversary is sometimes more important than defeating him, especially if one wishes to avoid armed conflict. The fall of the Berlin Wall was the symbolic collapse of the Soviet Union and occupied Eastern Europe. Putin clearly believes Russia was humiliated after the collapse and the American triumphalism that followed. But humiliation can cut two ways. Russia feels slighted for not being recognized as a great power. In some sense though the analogy is far from perfect Russia reflects Germanys attitude after its defeat in World War I. The Treaty of Versailles forced Germany to disarm, concede territory and pay reparations. Hitlers rise to power two decades later was in large part due to his appeal to German nationalism and pride, which is precisely Vladimir Putins appeal to the Russian people. Putin has promised not to annex any territory beyond Crimea. Well see if he keeps that promise. Meanwhile, it would be nice if President Obama led on this matter instead of making the United States the laughingstock of the worlds dictators and to our detriment, perhaps some of our allies.Readers may email Cal Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Earlier this month, about 70 officials from the sheriffs office, county government, the city of Crystal River, the Southwest Florida Water Management District, Nature Coast EMS and the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce traveled to Maryland for an intensive one week course to give them the training needed for hurricane response. The training was conducted on the campus of the Emergency Management Institute in Emmetsburg, Md. The institute is a part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the training, lodging and transportation was paid for by FEMA. The week-long training was county specific, with the scenario of a major hurricane hitting the coast, flooding coastal homes, knocking out power and rendering Seven Rivers Regional Medical Center unable to treat patients. Participants were put through realistic training that forced them to think through how they would respond to these events and provide protection to the public. This is valuable training for public officials, because many of them have never dealt with a hurricane, and many others are in different jobs than they were in the last time our county went through major storms. Running through realistic scenarios gives those charged with protecting public safety the experience they would need to adequately respond to the devastation that would accompany a major storm. Hurricanes are a part of life in Florida, and while it has been several years since we have had to deal with one in the county, there is no guarantee that this good fortune will continue. Should we have a major storm, citizens will expect county officials to take leadership in dealing with the storm and recovery activities. Training by top-flight instructors at a national emergency planning training facility will help them provide this leadership. This is time well spent that could make a major difference if we face a major storm in Citrus County. THE ISSUE:Seventy county officials attend hurricane training.OUR OPINION:Time well spent preparing for hurricane recovery.

If they havent got the money to maintain the roads, why are they building new roads instead of taking care of all the old customers that have lived here for years?Greenlight it alreadyId like to talk about the issue with the MSBU on the road maintenance. I agree with the editorial page. The only issue is, when Ive talked to the road maintenance supervisors. I live on a road that has approximately 12 houses that hasnt been touched in over 35 years and the road is called Mesa Verde. Its a shortcut between Mustang and Lecanto Highway and Walgreens and its a racetrack at times. But Im not talking about the speed; Im talking about the wear on the road. Its been patch quilted and its time to have the road resurfaced. And going by their own statement in 15 or 20 years. Well, it was last on the books for and then they were going to do it in and then they were going to do it in and now were not even on the schedule to have it done and here it is 2014. Somebody in road maintenance better recalculate how theyre doing their roads. They need to be done. Pave the moneyNow that the county has given in to Duke Energy, taking a whole lot less than we should have got, maybe we can do away with that MSBU on those roads, you know? Less tax. Weve got $7.5 million coming in. Going to be split up a couple ways, but sure is enough in there to cover roads. Dont slam it to the people. Get rid of those MSBUs and get rid of that fire one too.Wheres all the revenue?County commissioners, tell us, where has all the road tax money gone? We pay a yearly transportation tax on our bill and gasoline tax which is supposed to be for road maintenance. Now you want an MSBU tax for roads. Money wasted on the Ottawa road and a port, plus all the consultant fees. This money could be used for roads. For over 25 years, paying taxes in our area, not one road has been resurfaced in Unit 8 in Beverly Hills, just patches, patches, patches.

rural nature of the area with the fishing, hunting and those types of things and figured it would be a good fit for them, Bresnahan said. Sears vacated the mall in April 2012. Last year, half of the space was turned into a putt-putt golf venue called Cuzin Vinnie.com Mini-PuttGolf; and the Disabled American Veterans organization also maintained an office there. Bresnahan said the puttputt business and the DAV office will be moved to another location in the mall. The Sears site is 92,000 square feet of retail space and little more than 21 percent of the total mall retail space. We should be back to normal as a mall by 2015, she said. Crystal River City Manager Andy Houston said he was pleased to hear the news. I think they are going to bring a lot of traffic to the mall and the fact that they are purchasing the space shows a substantial commitment to the mall and to the city, Houston said. Citrus County Chamber of Commerce CEO Josh Wooten said, Having a solid anchor like Rural King in the mall will certainly give Crystal River a shot in the arm. Wooten added that the products Rural King sells are very attractive to people in this county and therefore will be a wellreceived destination. Rural King also has stores in Leesburg and Spring Hill and plans are to open one in Lake Wales this year. Bresnahan said store executives told her they wanted to use local contractors to redo the store in its corporate image.Contact Chronicle reporter A.B.

According to the DOT, Citrus County government requested the signal. The county, however, said the sheriffs office wanted an emergency signal for its fire vehicles coming from the fully manned station on Kensington just off S.R. 44. The sheriffs office, however, didnt get involved until the Kensington Property Owners Association applied for the signal and asked the sheriffs office to support the request, sheriffs spokeswoman Heather Yates said. Botello, in an email to the Chronicleanswering a reporters questions, said the state would not have funded an emergency signal. He said that would have been the countys responsibility. But the states interest in installing a signal apparently was jump-started by the countys request for an emergency signal, according to emails. County officials in 2012 asked the state for the emergency signal because the county fire chief said emergency vehicles were having trouble turning out into traffic on S.R. 44. In reviewing the request, the state conducted a traffic count and determined the intersection warranted a full signal, records show. The signal project includes a pair of new leftturn lanes. Each lane will have its own signal that includes a new DOT standard for a flashing yellow turn arrow so that drivers may turn when traffic clears.

Rick Scott has requested. The Senates budget proposal, $74.9 billion, gets a public airing Thursday. House Speaker Will Weatherford has said his chambers water approach this year will be to focus on tangible work over new policy, which would favor Negrons Everglades proposals over the Senates springs effort. That effort continues to be crafted by Sens. David Simmons, RAltamonte Springs, Charlie Dean, R-Inverness, Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, and Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee. Provisions of Negrons plan include $40 million to speed construction of the states portion of a C44 reservoir and stormwater treatment area for the Indian River LagoonSouth Restoration Project, and $32 million for projects tied to ensuring that all surface water discharges into the Everglades Protection Area meet water quality standards. Both projects are in the House budget. Negron also is seeking $30 million a year as part of a three-year funding plan for a Scott-backed proposal to bridge a portion of the Tamiami Trail in an effort to redirect water south through the Everglades. Funding for the bridge is in the Department of Transportations work program. The Senate springs plan seeks to control the amounts of fertilizers allowed into waterways, redirect waste water and replace septic systems at no charge to homeowners. Gardiner called the unanimous vote Thursday by the Senate Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee the first step in a multi-year effort that has seen resistance from business groups such as Associated Industries of Florida and the Florida Home Builders Associations, and wastewater utility operators. You are not going to study us to death on this one, Gardiner said. And you are not going to run out the clock. The springs programs directed at protecting 33 first-magnitude springs and five others that are in districts covered by senators backing the bill are proposed to be funded through a massive shift of state documentary-stamp tax revenues, which are fees already paid when real estate is sold. Dean said the Senate proposal continues to be adjusted, while Simmons said the states economy will be damaged if the springs are allowed to continue to deteriorate. The future of our lifestyle is in our hands, Simmons said. SPRINGSContinued from Page A1 Charlie Deancrafting springs bill with other senators.

Chicago train operator tiredCHICAGO The president of a Chicago transit union said there are indications the operator of a commuter train that derailed at OHare International Airport dozed off. Amalgamated Transit Union Local 308 President Robert Kelly said the operator told him she had worked a lot of overtime recently and was extremely tired. The eight-car public transit train jumped the tracks early Monday, skidded across a platform and scaled an escalator leading to the airport. More than 30 people were injured. The National Transportation Safety Board plans to interview the train operator, who was still hospitalized. No one suffered lifethreatening injuries. Train kills teen who saved girlMARYSVILLE, Calif. Witnesses and family members said a Northern California teen pushed his girl friend away from the path of an oncoming train before he was struck and killed. The girlfriend, 16-yearold Mickayla Friend, was still grazed and critically injured, though her mother, Sandy, said at a vigil Sunday that she was breathing on her own and walking. Mickayla and her boyfriend, 16-year-old Mateus Moore, were heading to a school dance Friday night in Marysville when they were struck by the Union Pacific freight train. Police are looking into whether the teens were distracted.5 bodies found in plane wreckageDENVER The bodies of five people were found inside the wreckage of a single-engine plane that crashed into a cold, murky reservoir in southwestern Colorado over the weekend, authorities said Monday. The wreckage will have to be brought to shore before the bodies can be removed, Ouray County spokeswoman Marti Whitmore said. The plane is about 60 or 70 feet underwater and upside down in about 3 feet of silt, officials said. A salvage team is expected to begin raising the wreckage Wednesday. Authorities havent released the identities of the victims, but said the flight originated in Gadsden, Ala. The single-engine Socata TBM700 crashed at about 2 p.m. Saturday into Ridgway Reservoir, about 25 miles south of Montrose and about 180 miles southwest of Denver.

Egyptian court sentences deathCAIRO An Egyptian court Monday sentenced to death nearly 530 suspected backers of ousted President Mohammed Morsi over a deadly attack on a police station, capping a swift, two-day mass trial in which defense attorneys were not allowed to present their case. It was the largest single batch of death sentences in the world in recent years, Amnesty International said. The U.S. State Department said it defies logic that so many people could get a fair trial in just two sessions. The verdicts by a court in the city of Minya are subject to appeal and are likely to be overturned. But the outcome stunned human rights activists and raised fears that the rule of law is being swept away in the crackdown waged by the military-backed interim government against Morsis Muslim Brotherhood since his overthrow last summer.Pregnant woman, guardsman killedCARACAS, Venezuela A pregnant woman who was shot in the head and a National Guard member fired upon as he tried to clear a roadway are the latest casualties of violence tied to ongoing protests in Venezuela, authorities said Monday. The woman, 28-year-old Adriana Urquiola, died Sunday night in Guaicaipuro, said the mayor of the municipality just outside the capital of Caracas. Five months pregnant, Urquiola was killed after she left a bus that was stuck in traffic because of a barricade built by antigovernment protesters. She had begun walking toward the road block, but didnt appear to have been participating in the protest. With the latest casualties, at least 33 people have died in the subsequent violence.Arabs to pressure Qatar at summitKUWAIT CITY An assortment of Arab nations will likely use an Arab summit this week to try to pressure the tiny but wealthy Gulf nation of Qatar to stop supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and other opposition movements throughout the region. Egypt and Saudi Arabia have labeled the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, and two senior Arab officials said Monday that those two countries would take the lead in attempting to isolate Qatar by calling for a collective Arab approach to terror. The two-day Arab League summit in Kuwait, which begins today, follows months of tension over this issue. Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates have joined Egypt and Saudi Arabia in withdrawing their ambassadors from Qatar. World BRIEFS From wire reports Associated PressOSO, Wash. The search for survivors of a deadly Washington state mudslide grew Monday to include scores of people who were still unaccounted for as the death toll from the wall of trees, rocks and debris that swept through a rural community rose to at least 14. In the struggle to find loved ones, family members and neighbors used chain saws and their bare hands to dig through wreckage that was tangled by the mud into broken piles. Authorities said they were looking for more than 100 people who had not been heard from since the disaster about 55 miles northeast of Seattle. They predicted that the number of missing would decline as more people are found safe. But the startling initial length of the list added to the anxieties two days after a mile-wide layer of soft earth crashed onto a cluster of homes at the bottom of a river valley. The situation is very grim, Snohomish County Fire District 21 Chief Travis Hots said, stressing that authorities are still in rescue mode and are holding out hope. But he noted: We have not found anyone alive on this pile since Saturday. Snohomish County sheriffs spokeswoman Shari Ireton said Monday afternoon that search and rescue crews discovered an additional six bodies, bringing the number of fatalities to at least 14. The slide critically injured several others. About 30 houses were destroyed, and the debris blocked a mile-long stretch of state highway near Arlington. The mudslide struck Saturday morning, a time when most people are at home. Of the 49 structures in the neighborhood, authorities believe at least 25 were full-time residences. An overnight search of the debris field turned up no other bodies, Hots said. Mondays search included aircraft, dogs and heavy equipment. Frustrations were growing as family members and neighbors waited for official word on the missing and the dead. Elaine Young and her neighbors uncovered several bodies Sunday and had to contact authorities to get them removed. They also found a chocolate Labrador named Buddy alive, and helped pull the dog from the rubble, leading her to wonder if other survivors could be out there, desperate for help. If we found a dog alive yesterday afternoon that we cut out of a part of a house, doesnt that seem that maybe somebody could be stuck up under part of a house and be alive, too? asked Young, whose home survived the slide but was on the edge of the devastation. PM: Plane crashed Associated PressKUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia After 17 days of desperation and doubt over the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, the countrys officials said an analysis of satellite data points to a heartbreaking conclusion: Flight 370 met its end in the southern reaches of the Indian Ocean, and none of those aboard survived. The somber announcement late Monday by Prime Minister Najib Razak left unresolved many more troubling questions about what went wrong aboard the Boeing 777 to take it so far off-course. It also unleashed a maelstrom of sorrow and anger among the families of the jets 239 passengers and crew. A solemn Najib, clad in a black suit, read a brief statement about what he called an unparalleled study of the jets lastknown signals to a satellite. That analysis showed that the missing plane, which took off from Kuala Lumpur for Beijing early on March 8, veered to a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean, he said. Officials said they concluded that the flight had been lost in the deep waters west of Perth, Australia, based on more thorough analysis of the brief signals the plane sent every hour to a satellite belonging to Inmarsat, a British company, even after other communication systems on the jetliner shut down. The search is now considered a race against time because of the battery life of the pinger in the black boxes the common name for the cockpit voice and data recorders normally attached to the fuselage may run out in the next two weeks. The search for the wreckage and the planes recorders could take years because the ocean is up to 23,000 feet deep. Its also possible that what is left of the plane may never be found. West seeks to isolate Russia over Ukraine dispute Associated PressTHE HAGUE, Netherlands Seeking to isolate Russia, the U.S. and Western allies declared Monday they are indefinitely cutting Moscow out of a major international coalition and warned they stand ready to order tougher economic penalties if Vladimir Putin presses further into Ukraine. The moves came amid a flurry of diplomatic jockeying as the West grappled for ways to punish Russia for its annexation of the Crimean Peninsula and prevent the crisis from escalating. President Barack Obama and the leaders of Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Canada and Japan met in the Netherlands for an emergency meeting of the Group of Seven. In a joint statement after their 90minute meeting, the leaders said they were suspending their participation with Russia in the Group of Eight major industrial nations until Moscow changes course. The G-7 leaders instead plan to meet this summer in Brussels, symbolically gathering in the headquarters city of the European Union and NATO, two Western organizations that have sought to bolster ties with Ukraine. Today, we reaffirm that Russias actions will have significant consequences, the leaders statement said. This clear violation of international law is a serious challenge to the rule of law around the world and should be a concern for all nations. In an unexpected development, Russias foreign minister Sergey Lavrov met separately in The Hague with his Ukrainian counterpart, the highest level of contact between the two nations since Russia moved forces into Crimea nearly a month ago. U.S. officials said they welcomed the meeting but challenged Russia to take further steps to deescalate the conflict.

You just have to dig a little deeper than statistics and box scores to see how much he means to the Gators. The 6-foot-8 senior forward from Bordeaux, France, is what coach Billy Donovan calls a dirty work guy, doing things in the press and the paint that rarely make headlines or highlight clips. But his tenacity and toughness were on display in the third round of the NCAA tournament Saturday. Yeguete had eight points, four rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot in the 61-45 win against ninth-seeded Pittsburgh. He just does so many different things in the press. Hes such a great cover guy with our defense. Hes a great help defender, Donovan said. Hes the epitome of a guy that when you look down at the stat sheet its hard to have a level of appreciation for him. ... He really impacts winning. He impacts the game in a very, very positive way for us, and what he does is really, really rare. Yeguete and Florida (34-2) return to the court Thursday night against fourth-seeded UCLA (28-8) in the South Region semifinals in Memphis, Tenn. Its another chance for Yeguete to go mostly unnoticed at least to outsiders. Yeguete has the size and athleticism to play the front of the press, trap all over the court and defend anyone from a guard to a center. And hes regularly diving on the ground for loose balls, taking charges and willing to sacrifice offensive fame for defensive fortitude. On Monday, he was fittingly wearing a white Gators T-shirt with Intensity Counts printed on the front. His numbers Yeguete is averaging 4.9 points and 5.1 rebounds are far less telling. But considering how things went for Yeguete the last two years, just being on the court and contributing on a regular basis are accomplishments. Its exciting for me just being able to play, just being able to be out there for the postseason, Yeguete said. Thats what I fight for, thats why Ive been working every single day. Yeguete missed the final nine games in 2012 because of a broken right foot, and Florida went 4-5 without him. He was hoping to play had the Gators advanced to the Final Four, but they blew a doubledigit lead against Louisville in the regional final. Yeguete faced more adversity last year while dealing with tendinitis in his right knee most of the season. The pain got so intense in early February that he opted to have arthroscopic surgery to remove floating chips and cartilage. HeSee YEGUETE/ Page B3 Lots of favorites alive in Sweet 16 Associated PressThe Billion Dollar Dream has been over for a while. Most bracket sheets are loaded with red Xs. Still, there is plenty of March Madness ahead of us in the NCAA tournaments round of 16. You want favorites? Three No. 1s Florida, Arizona, Virginia are alive and well after two rounds. You want underdogs? How about three with double-digit seedings Stanford, a 10, with 11s Dayton and Tennessee. You want a rivalry? Its tough to beat Kentucky-Louisville. You want rematches? Besides Kentucky-Louisville there is Arizona-San Diego State. You get the point. Four days, 12 games. Its regional weekend when the Sweet 16 is cut to the Final Four. Enjoy.SOUTH REGIONALThe game that guarantees a winner with a double-digit seeding, Stanford vs. Dayton, will be followed by the overall top seed, Florida, facing a familiar tournament opponent in UCLA. Stanford gets to wear home whites after beating New Mexico and Kansas. The Cardinal are in the round of 16 for the first time since 2008, the last time they were in the tournament. They havent given up more than 57 points and they have been great at the free throw line. Dayton followed the win over Ohio State with a squeaker over Syracuse and the Flyers are in the round of 16 for the first time since 1984. They got here with two wins by a total of three points and they have yet to break 60, but they have done just enough. Coach Archie Miller couldnt meet his brother Sean and Arizona until the national semifinals. Florida has lived up to its billing as the overall No. 1 seed. The Gators have increased their winning streak to 28 games with a couple of double-figure victories. This is their fourth straight year in the round of 16, the longest current streak. UCLA won both its games by 17 points and the Bruins have won five straight and seven of eight, including an upset of Arizona. This is their first Sweet 16 appearance since 2008. Florida beat UCLA in the national championship game in 2006 and in the national semifinals the following season. The Gators also eliminated the Bruins in the second round in 2011.WEST REGIONALThis is the closest any of the regions came to having seeds 1-4 Maligned SEC remains unbeaten in NCAA tournament Associated PressGAINESVILLEIts hard to mock Southeastern Conference basketball right now.Panned for early season losses and relatively weak nonconference schedules, the league has three teams still playing in the NCAA tournament. Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee the only SEC squads to make the 68-team field all advanced to the Sweet 16 over the weekend, giving the SEC a perfect 7-0 mark in college basketballs premier event. Im sure some people are pretty surprised at three SEC teams, because all I heard all year was that the SEC was in a down year and it was a weak SEC, Florida guard Scottie Wilbekin said Monday. Its pretty cool to see three SEC teams in the Sweet 16. The Gators (34-2), the tournaments overall top seed, will play fourth-seeded UCLA in the South Region on Thursday night in Memphis, Tenn. No. 8 seed Kentucky (26-10), which handed Wichita State its only loss of the season Sunday, advanced to face fourth-seeded Louisville on Friday night in the Midwest Region. No. 11 Tennessee (24-12), which already has three tournament wins since opening play in the First Four, will join the Wildcats in Indianapolis and play Michigan. Only two other conferences the Pac-12 and the Big Ten landed three teams in the round of 16. Both of those leagues were ranked in the top three in conference RPI. The SEC, meanwhile, ranked seventh, just ahead of the American Athletic Conference. Florida coach Billy Donovan blamed early season struggles for the widespread perception that the league was down. Its very, very unfair to pin a league based on what happens in November and December, Donovan said Monday. In a lot of ways, maybe some of the losses that our league took in November and December prepared them to be better in our league. I think our league can play with any league in the country. But I would say this: Just because certain league teams get knocked out early doesnt mean the league is overrated. And because a league really, really advances in the tournament doesnt mean the league is great. I just get upset when all of a sudden everybody just throws out and makes assumptions or draws conclusions of a league being good or bad based on whats happened in the non-conference. That to me is, I think, somewhat unfair. There were plenty of eye-opening losses early. Texas-El Paso upset Tennessee. Drexel beat Alabama. Northwestern State defeated Auburn. Davidson surprised Georgia. Massachusetts and Rhode Island topped LSU. Utah State knocked off Mississippi State. Missouri State stunned Texas A&M. And USC Upstate shocked South Carolina. There also were setbacks in more high-profile matchups: Tennessees Antonio Barton celebrates Sunday during an NCAA third-round tournament game against Mercer in Raleigh. The Volunteers won to keep the Southeastern Conference undefeated in the tournament. Associated Press See SWEET 16/ Page B4 See LAUGHING/ Page B3

SCOREBOARDCITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLE Michigan State and Baylor beat Kentucky. Connecticut and Wisconsin defeated Florida. Texas, Providence, Butler and Saint Louis knocked off Vanderbilt. So the SEC was down before its teams even started beating each other up. It surely didnt help the leagues image when Florida, which isnt close to being Donovans most talented team, swept the regular season and the tournament. The Gators finished 18-0 in the regular season, becoming the first from a major conference to accomplish the feat since Indiana in 1976, and then beat Kentucky for the third time to win the tournament. When you have a stage and a platform and youre on television, youre allowed to say what you want to say, Vols coach Cuonzo Martin said. I think sometimes perception becomes a reality. Its a very tough league, a very talented league. Youve got the No. 1 team in all of college basketball in the SEC. You have the winningest college program in the SEC, in Kentucky. I dont think the criticism is accurate. But the teams that are in the tournament, they won it because theyre good teams. It might not just be the teams in the tournament, either. Entering Monday games, the SEC was 12-2 in postseason play thanks in part to wins by Georgia, Missouri, LSU and Arkansas in the NIT and Texas A&M in the College Basketball Invitational. Of course, those victories hardly compare to what Florida, Kentucky and Tennessee have done. If everybody in the SEC was out of the tournament, theyd say, See, I told you the league is no good, Donovan said. Now weve got some teams advancing, Wow, the league must be really, really underrated. Sometimes it has to do with matchups, sometimes it has to do with who youre playing against. Sometimes it has to do with how well youre playing. Theres a lot of variables that go into winning in postseason. missed six games, wasnt the same when he returned and ended up needing another surgery after the season. While he seemingly has lost some leaping ability, hes still been a consistent rebounder and a dependable defender. Its hard to find, Donovan said. Its hard to find guys that really kind of hang their hat on being kind of a dirty work guy, and its hard sometimes because certainly it doesnt really give them a lot of headlines. Hes not a headline guy. But he really does a lot for our team. Yeguete has never gotten a lot of attention in Gainesville. He was born in France, but grew up playing soccer in Ivory Coast. He picked up basketball late and really fell in love with Florida while watching Joakim Noah lead Florida to back-to-back national titles in 2006 and 2007. He moved to Florida Air Academy in Melbourne, before his junior year of high school and met teammate Scottie Wilbekin while playing Amateur Athletic Union ball. Wilbekin quickly realized that Yeguetes game was far from flashy. Hes been that way since I met him, Wilbekin said. He has a knack for it. He gets tough rebounds, gets his hands on tips and has a nose for the ball. He seems to get it when other players wouldnt. Its just an attitude. When you have it, you dont really realize it because it just comes natural. He has it. Yeguete has no plans to change his style, either preferring to alter games without necessarily scoring points. Those plays impact the game and winning, he said. Im not the only one doing those things. ... Its a whole team effort.

The 25-year-old right-hander tested positive for Boldenone, the commissioners office said Monday. Boldenone is used primarily for the treatment of horses. Colome was 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in three midseason starts as a rookie last year. Colome was viewed as valuable rotation depth in light of an offseason elbow surgery that will keep right-hander Jeremy Hellickson out until May.From staff and wire reports SPORTS BRIEFS

Top-seeded Arizona, No. 2 Wisconsin and No. 4 San Diego State are still playing along with seventhseeded Baylor. Arizona was impressive on defense in dispatching Gonzaga in the third round and the Wildcats are in the round of 16 for the third time in four years. San Diego State finally showed its defensive prowess in a third-round win over North Dakota State, which had a season-low 44 points. These teams met in San Diego on Nov. 14 and Arizona won 69-60 behind the 23 points of Nick Johnson. The Wildcats were ranked No. 6 at the time and four weeks later were No. 1, a spot they held for eight weeks. Wisconsin is going from facing one set of highlighter yellow uniforms to another. The Badgers beat Oregon to get to the Sweet 16 after missing to get there last season. Frank Kaminsky, who had 19 points against Oregon, will be in for quite a test against Baylors tall, athletic front line. The Bears come in off a 30-point demolition of Creighton in which they held Doug McDermott, the nations leading scorer, to 15 points. They wont be able to concentrate on one of the Badgers, who have six players averaging from 13.4 points to 7.9 points.MIDWEST REGIONALIndianapolis is about to be invaded by people from the commonwealth of Kentucky. Those wearing red are for Louisville, those wearing blue are for the University of Kentucky. There will be fans of Tennessee and Michigan in town, but they will be hard to notice with all those Kentuckians in for a visit. Tennessee, a No. 11 seed, is the third team that played in the First Four to reach the regional semifinals. The Volunteers have won eight of nine with the only loss to Florida in the SEC tournament. They reached the Sweet 16 with a frontcourt dismantling of Mercer, outrebounding the team that beat Duke 41-19. Second-seeded Michigan is in the round of 16 for the second straight year and the Wolverines are trying to get back to the national championship game where they lost to Louisville. Nik Stauskas led an outside attack that saw Michigan make 14 3-pointers in a third-round win over Texas. Kentucky beat Louisville 73-66 just days after Christmas in the schools annual meeting. This one is going to be on a higher level as Kentuckys roster of high school stars meets a Louisville squad that features key players who were on last seasons national championship team. Kentucky, the preseason No. 1, did what no other team could do this season beat Wichita State. In what has to be the best game of the tournament so far, the Wildcats played above their years in handing the Shockers their first loss of the season. Louisville is in the round of 16 for the third straight year and the great news for the Cardinals is that Naismith Hall of Fame coach Rick Pitino is 16-0 in the regional semifinals. His team has won 14 of its last 15 games overall and eight straight in the NCAA tournament.EAST REGIONALThe NCAA tournament hasnt been in Madison Square Garden since 1961. One of the teams headed there this week has some great memories already of the building known as the worlds most famous arena. Virginia, the quietest of the four No. 1s, played its kind of game good defense and patient offense in beating Memphis by 18 points. That got the Cavaliers to the round of 16 for the first time since 1995. They are the sole team remaining from the Atlantic Coast Conference. Michigan State was the nations pick for the national championship even if it was a No. 4 seed. The injuries are a thing of the past and the Spartans look like the team that held the No. 1 ranking this season. They had their hands full with Harvard in the third round, but pulled away in the final minutes. Third-seeded Iowa State was able to overcome the loss of third-leading scorer Georges Niang to a broken foot by beating North Carolina in a game that came down to DeAndre Kanes driving basket with 1.6 seconds to play. The Cyclones, in the regional semifinals for the first time since 2000, are still a team with plenty of scorers. Connecticut won a record seven Big East tournament titles at Madison Square Garden, the last in 2011 when Kemba Walker led them to the national championship. Shabazz Napier was a freshman on that team and hes doing a solid imitation of Walker as he averaged 24.5 points in the two wins that has the Huskies in the Sweet 16 a year after they werent eligible for the tournament over academic sanctions.B4TUESDAY, MARCH25, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLESPORTS Rays-Twins among Florida games washed awayFORT MYERS The spring training game between the Tampa Bay Rays and Minnesota Twins scheduled for Monday was rained out.

For Augusta, its actually still a little too soon, to be honest with you, Woods said Monday at a news conference to announce that Quicken Loans is the new title sponsor of his golf tournament. Thats kind of the frustrating thing about this. The Masters is the only major tournament the 38year-old Woods has never missed. Four of his 14 major championships came at Augusta National, including his first in 1997. He last won the green jacket in 2005. This years Masters is April 10-13. Woods is off to the worst start of his 18 years on tour, and hes been troubled lately by back problems. He stopped playing in the final round at the Honda Classic on March 2 because of what he called back spasms and pain in his lower back. He tried to defend his title the following week at Doral, only for his back to flare up again in the final round, when he shot a 78, the highest Sunday score of his PGA Tour career and his first closing round without a birdie. Then last week, Woods withdrew from the Arnold Palmer Invitational because of persistent back pain. Ive had a couple weeks off and getting treatment and just working on trying to get ready for Augusta, Woods said Monday. As of right now, its still too soon, which is, as I said, pretty frustrating. This has been the longest sustained problem Woods has had with his lower back. He first showed signs of back pain at Bethpage Black at The Barclays in 2012, which he attributed to a soft bed at his hotel. He felt twinges during the final round of the PGA Championship last year, and when his back bothered him in the final round of The Barclays two weeks later, he said it was unrelated. At Mondays news conference, Woods discussed a deal through 2017 for his tournament to be called the Quicken Loans National. It will be played June 26-29 at Congressional this year. AT&T was in the final year of its contract as sponsor. The AT&T National began in 2007 with a military theme built around the Fourth of July in the nations capital. It has been held at Congressional for all but two years, in 2010 and 2011, as the course prepared to host the U.S. Open. In those years, it was played at Aronimink outside Philadelphia. Congressional is under contract through 2014, and Woods said there will be a vote next week to determine whether the club would host every other year in 2016, 2018 and 2020. Associated PressPhiladelphias Cody Asche slides in to score Monday ahead of the throw to Toronto catcher Dioner Navarro in a spring exhibition baseball game in Dunedin. The Phillies defeated the Blue Jays 6-3 in a rain-shortened game. Tiger Woodsunsure if he will be able to play in the Masters.
HEALTH& LIFE Section CTUESDAY, MARCH 25, 2014 CITRUSCOUNTYCHRONICLE Inside:Bowlathon to help rescue animals/ C8 Anyone who has children likely remembers jerry rigging bathroom and kitchen cabinets to keep curious tots away from household cleaners. But Ajax and Clorox arent the only culprits for accidental poisoning. In the Emergency Room at Citrus Memorial Health Systems, the poisoning cases Dr. Patrick Jean encounters most often involve medication: over the counter cold and cough meds for children, narcotics overdoses for adults. Most trivial ingestions require watching waiting only, he said. But if a person feels weak, has difficulty breathing or experiences an altered mental state, get them to the hospital immediately. To avoid these accidents: Follow directions and warnings on the label exactly as written every single time. If you have questions, contact your doctor, pharmacist or poison center not the Internet. Realize: what you consume with medication matters. Some meds can be dangerous or ineffective when ingested with alcohol, other drugs or certain foods or drinks. Tell your doctor everything you are taking, be it a prescription, an over-thecounter drug, a vitamin or herbal remedy. Keep the lights on when you swallow a pill so you can be sure what youre taking. Dont recycle containers to avoid confusing medications. Dispose of old and outdated medicines as soon as you no longer need them. (For tips on doing so in a safe manner, visit http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/ drug_disposal/takeback/) Never share a prescription. Medications also hurt Fluffy and Fido. Veterinarian Dr. Richard Dunn named improper medication as one of the most common topics he deals with at Countryside Animal Clinic in Beverly Hills. People sometimes poison their pet giving them over the counter human medications, such as Naproxen and Ibuprofen, he said. The margin of safety for these items is very low in dogs and cats, so it very easy to overdose them. Cats, for instance, lack enzymes needed to metabolize Tylenol, so it kills them unless an antidote is given, he said. Most people seem to know about that one now, but what we do see is permethrin toxicity. Permethrin toxicity occurs when people accidentally purchase topical flea medication that says for dogs only and apply them to cats, causing seizures and hypothermia. There is no antidote, Dr. Dunn said. We just wash it off and treat the cat symptomatically valium and muscle relaxers to control the seizures; IV fluids for dehydration. Stop searching, just callThe American Association of Poison Control Centers, which reports an average of 10,380 calls to poison centers daily, launched a campaign to encourage people, particularly those between the ages of 18 and 24 (who may find themselves in new situations, especially in college) to seek expert advice instead of consulting the Internet. Embarrassed or afraid of potential legal trouble, many young people go online, where they feel comforted by anonymity. However, responders at the Poison Help hotline (1-800-222-1222) will answer questions (no matter how trivial they may seem) and direct them to appropriate treatment with confidentiality and immediacy. Dubbed Unquestionable Answers, the campaign includes e-posters for social media featuring questions such as, How much vomit is too much vomit?

C2TUESDAY, MARCH25, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE Colonoscopy can help to save your life Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer among both men and women in the United States. This year, it is estimated that 136,000 new patients will develop this cancer. The risk of colorectal cancer increases as people get older. More than 90 percent of colorectal cancers occur in people older than 50. The average age of diagnosis in the United States is 72. Most colon cancers develop from a precancerous condition called polyps, particularly adenomatous polyps. Polyps can often be completely removed using a tool during a colonoscopy. This is a test in which a doctor looks into the colon using a lighted tube after the patient has been sedated. Polyp removal can prevent colon cancer. Those with adenomatous polyps have a greater risk of additional polyps and of colon cancer, and they should have follow-up screening tests regularly. In other words, a colonoscopy not only can detect early cancer, but it can also prevent colon cancer. In the United States, one of the standard recommendations is to have a colonoscopy once every 10 years. I strongly believe in it and so both my wife and myself had screening colonoscopies done. Overall, deaths from CRC have been falling at around 3 percent per year over the last decade (2001 to 2010). Overall rates of diagnosis of new colorectal cancer (incidence) have also been falling by an average of 3.4 percent per year, but there is a marked variation by age. Incidence is decreasing in adults over 50 years of age, with a particularly sharp drop in the people 65 years and older, attributed to colonoscopy, but it has increased slightly in younger adults under the age of 50. This is prevention at its best. The decline was much more in people over 65. In the last two years of the study, it declined by 7.2 percent a year. In 2010, 64 percent of adults 65 and older reported being current for colorectal cancer screening versus 55 percent of adults 50 to 64. Although there are several different tests available for CRC screening, the dramatic declines in incidence in recent years have been largely attributed to the uptick in colonoscopy. I recommend screening colonoscopy to all my appropriate patients. For proper visualization of the colon, cleaning it is essential. The preparation is crucial. This is what patients hate most. I would say if a few hours of inconvenience can save your life, it is definitely worth it. I strongly recommend screening colonoscopy to every one above 50, and above 45 in African Americans (because they are more commonly diagnosed at a younger age).Dr. Sunil Gandhi is a hematologist and oncologist.

Dr. Sunil GandhiCANCER & BLOOD DISEASE Headaches are a very common problem and have lots of different causes. One of the lesser known causes for headache includes nasal allergies. It is accurate to say that certain food allergies are known as being a causative factor for headaches, but people infrequently attribute headaches to nasal allergies and hayfever issues. One of the more unique types of headaches related to allergy includes a migraine type of headache. There is a correlation of about 33 percent between migraine sufferers and allergy sufferers and it is now becoming evident that there is a link and sometimes an increased frequency and intensity of headaches in people who are allergic. The exact method cause or pathology of a migraine is not fully understood, but it is beginning to become more clear that there is a trigger that kick starts the headache just as there are things that initiate allergy symptoms and there may be some common denominators. Among other things, there are two common denominators: vasal dilatation a change in the size of the blood vessel that increases blood flow and swelling and histamine which is a chemical substance released by the mast cells which are in the blood. Histamine creates many of the symptoms associated with allergy, as well as migraine. There are many types of headaches as well as migraine headaches, caused by many different reasons, but allergy, although not common, can definitely be a cause. Not all migraine patients respond and get improvement with antihistamines but if that has ever been the case, you might want to consider getting allergy tested to see if control of your allergies will diminish your chance of having migraine headaches. It may be an option for you as drug treatment of migraine headaches varies greatly as does the response to medication. Because of the widely established variability and effectiveness of migraine treatments allergy testing might shed some light on your migraine headache problem.

While you can certainly see osteoporosis in men, it is much more common in women, and is related to activity, genetics, hormonal exposure during life, and the process of aging. For years, we have known that some men who are treated for prostate cancer using medications to suppress their testosterone level were also at an in increased risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures. Now, researchers have also discovered a link between one of my favorite topics to discuss, tobacco use, and osteoporosis in men. And, an extra dose of bad news, this relates to inhalation of smoke both as the primary smoker and via secondhand smoke secondary to being surrounded by others who smoke. In a recent study from South Korea, researchers found that exposure to cigarette smoke (passive or active, secondhand or firsthand) is associated with lower bone mineral density (BMD) in the long bone in our thigh, the femur, as well as the lower (lumbar) spine of men. This was recently published in the journal Spine. In this study, researchers analyzed data from 770 males, all over the age of 30, participating in the cross-sectional Fifth Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Relationships between tobacco exposure, as determined by urine cotinine, a chemical found in the urine of smokers, and BMD in femoral neck and lumbar spine were evaluated. The researchers observed a significant decrease in the density of the femoral neck and the lumbar spine with increasing age. Education and income also correlated with femoral neck density, the higher the income and the more advanced the education level, the less likely a person was to smoke. Active smokers, or those exposed to secondhand smoke on a regular basis who were found to have urine cotinine level equal or higher than those typically associated with smoking a pack of cigarettes a day, had lower femoral neck density than those with cotinine levels at a level below that expected in a regular smoker. Age, urine cotinine level and body mass index were statistically related to femoral neck and lumbar spine density as well in several statistical analysis. These findings suggest that tobacco exposure by active or passive smoking seems to play a critical role in the density of the bones of the hip and lower back, and over time will lead to an increased rate of fractured hips and compression fractures of the lower spine. Just another reason to try to quit if you are a regular tobacco user.Dr. Bennett is a board-certified radiation oncologist.

C6TUESDAY, MARCH25, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEHEALTH& LIFE 000H90Y Dont Miss Out! 000H90Y Dont Miss Out! CALVINWOODWARD Associated PressWASHINGTON The new health care law helps some people, hurts others and confuses almost everyone. Hoping to simplify things a bit, The Associated Press asked its Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus followers for their real-life questions about the program and the problems theyre running into as the March 31 deadline approaches to sign up for coverage in new insurance markets. Two of their questions and APs answers. THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE AND ME Q: Is it really true that the IRS cant do anything to you if you refuse to get insurance and also refuse to pay the penalty? David Myer, 46, a consulting geophysicist in Encinitas, Calif. A: You could say the IRS has one hand tied behind its back here. But that still leaves the other hand. The tax collectors dont have nearly as many tools to go after insurance avoiders as it has to enforce tax laws. It can, however, dip into peoples tax refunds to collect the penalty for those who dont get health insurance. Most filers qualify for a tax refund, so they would be exposed to that collection tactic. Beyond that, it can send insistent letters, and who wants to get those? Elizabeth Maresca, a former IRS trial attorney, told the AP that an unfriendly letter about an outstanding health insurance penalty probably will have much the same effect as one about tax arrears. Most people pay because theyre scared, and I dont think thats going to change, she said. That said, the IRS cant seize bank accounts, dock wages, charge interest on unpaid penalties or apply criminal or civil sanctions to force people to obtain health coverage. CAN I JOIN THE EXCHANGE? Q: Why are there limits as to who can sign up? If someone has an employer plan that they dont like, they cant switch the plan to one of the new ones. Duane E. Maddy, a graphic designer and digital artist in Dunbar, W.Va. A: Its true, the new system is set up so people who get health insurance at work stay on it. For better or worse, the law aims to preserve employer-based insurance, not give everyone an easy bailout to the new individual markets. That said, you can shop for coverage in the new state exchanges even if you have insurance at work. But it may not make financial sense to switch. It depends on whether your work insurance is considered affordable. If its not, you may be able to get a subsidized plan on the exchange and a better deal. Whats unaffordable? The government defines it this way: If you are paying more than 9.5 percent of your income for your health insurance premiums at work, youre paying too much. You can move to an exchange plan and possibly get subsidized premiums there. So youll have to do some math and wade through fine print to see what your options might be. Its also possible to switch to an exchange if your workplace plan fails to meet certain other conditions, although most job-based coverage is expected to meet that test. To be sure, the government doesnt make any of this easy to understand. Q&A: Who can shop online for health coverage?

NEWS NOTES The audience was like a sea of green out at the Curtis Peterson Auditorium in Lecanto when Andy Cooney and his band brought his Irish cabaret to our community. A near sell-out crowd welcomed his entourage, which included Noel Ginnity, Irelands funniest comedian, Darrah Carr step dancers, Bugs Moran, musical director on keyboard, and the Guinness Irish Band. It was a great St. Patricks Day celebration, sponsored by the American Irish Club of West Citrus County and the Citrus County Chronicle. Opening with They Call Her the Irish Rover, we joined Cooney with Tura Lura Lural, as Cooney encouraged us to clap along to the Irish beat of the band. Multi-talented drummer Jimmy Kelly, from County Galway, is a vocalist and songwriter as well. He spent six years in Nashville in collaboration with songwriters and musicians and performed two years in Radio City Music Hall. Colm Graham, guitarist, is from Tipperary. After touring in Ireland in the 1960s, he moved to New York in 1973 and he toured with Cooney for more than 20 years. Mitch Riley, a professional musician for more than 40 years, plays sax, flute and whistles. From County Cavan, he has performed with numerous international entertainers, including Engelbert Humperdinck, as well as on television with the Oak Ridge Boys (and on the BBC, MTV and HBO). Bugs Moran, the musical director, from Long Island, N.Y., has performed with Irish singer and songwriter Mike Carrol in New York and on Queen Elizabeth 2 cruises. We swayed to the classic lyrics of I wandered to the hills, Maggie, the creek and the old rusty mill, when you and I were young, Maggie. The Darrah Carr step dancers, dressed in royal blue, enhanced our Irish reverie with high-energy, rhythmic patterns in a blending of traditional Irish step and contemporary dance. Moran, keyboard artist, shared the spotlight with Cooney, vocalizing on You Raised Me Up, a personal favorite with the inspirational line, You raised me up to more than I can be. Returning to the stage, dressed in emerald green, the lively step dancers performed Stolen Kiss from The Lord of the Dance with accompaniment by Graham on guitar and Reilly on flute. Comedian Ginnity, with the distinction of performing in one of Dublins longest cabarets for 35 years, astounded the audience with his unique collection of Irish characters that he brings to life; Paddy and Murphy included. One of the worlds top 50 comedians, Ginnitys wit and wisdom brought continuous gales of laughter with each appearance throughout the evening. After intermission, as the crowd returned to their seats, each member of the band had their opportunity to step into the solo spotlight and enchant us with their specialty. The step dancers retuned dressed in melon green and delighted us with their mastery of the Irish dance. After Ginnitys second set of funstering, Cooney returned to perform My Kathleen, a romantic ballad with the line, I love to stroll the shady lanes and meadows of Irish green with my Kathleen. Performing I Remember for the veterans, it was a story of a boy and a campfire, and thinking of home. The artistry of drummer Kelly shone as he joined Cooney in a fabulous duet, Dancin the Dublin Reel with step dancers, as Reilly continued with flute and we joined in on the chorus: They were dancing all night long till the break of dawn. Recalling Ellis Island days, Cooney performed the hauntingly beautiful Immigrant Eyes, in the hopes of passing on the spirit of his grandparents with the line, Dont take it for granted, my grandparents immigrant eyes. Kellys performance of The Home of Donegal, with accompaniment by Reilly on flute, was magnificent. In honor of the first responders, the selection of I Wont Turn my Back on You included solos by each band member. A classic Irish piece, MacNamaras Band, included audience participation with our arms waving to the left, then to the right. Slowing down the pace, Cooney sang Danny Boy, a perennial Irish favorite, a fathers lament to his son. The final set included The Town I Love So Well, by Coulter, which speaks of the Good Friday agreement bringing people together in peace in Ireland, and Bright New Day, with lines such as: The future is learning from the past. Step out of the darkness into the light. Sing it out so all the world can see and hear. May all our dreams take flight.

C10TUESDAY, MARCH25, 2014CITRUSCOUNTY(FL) CHRONICLEENTERTAINMENT PHILLIPALDER Newspaper Enterprise Assn.Ambrose Bierce defined a dentist as a prestidigitator who, while putting metal in ones mouth, pulls coins out of ones pockets. A bridge player also wants it both ways: Heads I make my contract, tails you fail in yours. In this deal, South is in four spades. West cashes his two top diamonds, then shifts to the club 10. How should declarer continue? This is one auction that always mystifies less experienced players. By an unpassed hand, after partners takeout double and responders pass, if advancer (the doublers partner) makes a simple suit-bid, it shows some 0-8 points; a jump in a suit is approximately 9-11; and a cuebid of the openers suit indicates 12 points or more. After Souths cue-bid, the auction turns to natural. Declarers only problem is in the trump suit. He must avoid two losers. In this case, the bidding should help him, but the right play is the same, even if during the auction the opponents gave excellent impersonations of Trappist monks. If South starts with a finesse of his queen, West wins with his king, and declarer has a nasty guess on the second round. Should he finesse East for the jack or play for West to have started with king-jack-doubleton? Instead, South should first cash his spade ace. When the king drops, he can bring home an overtrick. But even if the ace collects only the five and six, declarer can cross to dummy and lead a spade toward his queen. He has no guess to make.

R MotherMother Dear Annie: I have played in a local poker league for 10 years and have built solid friendships with these people. Three years ago, a new crew joined our crowd. At first, they were friendly, but in the past two years, one of them began having home poker parties. I was completely caught off guard when I started noticing Facebook posts with all of our friends, and my husband and I were not on the invite list. I tried to be a good sport and would post comments to let them know I was glad they had a good time, but deep down, I was hurt that people Id known for a decade didnt seem to mind that we were not there. A few of them commented privately, saying they were not aware it was happening, but nothing changed. Last year, I was diagnosed with cancer and have undergone radiation. My dont care quotient is at an alltime high, so when I noticed once again that we were not invited to a gathering, I commented that it was a slap in the face and amazingly rude to expect me to be courteous and friendly during our poker games when its obvious that she has no regard for my feelings at all. I later attempted to extend an olive branch to all of the members of our league (including Miss Rude) by inviting them to my husbands birthday party, but not one of them showed up. Do I need a shrink, or should I just put all of our cards on the table and find out what Ive done to make her deliberately alienate me? Royal Flush Dear Royal: This sounds like high school with the mean girls and the bullies. There could be any number of reasons why Miss Rude has isolated you she doesnt like you, she wants to be in control, she believes you are competition. The real question is why your other friends go along with it. If you have a pal in your group, ask for an honest assessment. But mostly, we think you need new friends. Dear Annie My husband and I are childless, over 55 and in the process of downsizing to a smaller home. Our birthdays are coming up. We dont want or need clothes, knickknacks or home furnishings. We donate such items to charity. While we appreciate their generosity, we have told our friends and relatives that a gift certificate (in any amount) to a restaurant is most welcome. It is a nice treat and an incentive to get out. But few of them choose this option. Last Christmas, we were inundated with clothes and tchotchkes for the home we are leaving. Would you please address this so our requests arent ignored? Ft. Myers, Fla. Dear Florida: All gifts are just that, and no one is obligated to get you anything, let alone what you are requesting. The proper response is to say thank you and then give the items away. But we understand your frustration. If the same people keep doing this, its OK to ask them to stop, as you no longer need these items and will give them to charity. You can sincerely suggest that they make a direct donation to the charity instead. If they then ask what youd actually like, you can tell them. Dear Annie: I read the letter from Unwilling Son, who refused to take a family photo for his parents 40th anniversary because his mother asked him to wear a white sweatshirt and he doesnt look good in white. Several years back, we had such a picture taken. I treasure the picture because the family is scattered all over the world. Tell the ungrateful snob to put on the sweatshirt and make his parents happy. It may be the last time they are together.
